Troubling times for rail transportation Big grain backlog | Costs keep rising for producers

WIT sale stirs court challenge Judge intervenes | Opponents of Weyburn Inland Terminal sale ordered to amend circular BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Jack Shymko is one prairie producer caught in a grain transportation system that is unable to meet shippers’ needs. On his farm near Ituna, Sask., about 160 kilometres northeast of Regina, Shymko has yet to deliver a single bushel of last year’s record-breaking crop. Every tonne of his production has been contracted but so far, not a single bushel has been delivered. “I’ve contracted everything, other than canola, but I haven’t moved a thing,” said Shymko. “On this line, there’s not too much of anything moving, other than oil cars. There’s just no movement.” After a decent start to the 2013-14 crop year, grain movement through line companies has been slow this year.



here are hundreds of stories to describe the transportation backlog that’s affecting western Canadian farmers this winter. And in most of those stories, there is one recurring theme: record agricultural pro duction c ombine d with rising demand for rail service and insufficient capacity is costing growers dearly. Lost sales, huge basis levels and mounting demurrage costs — estimated at more than $25 million — have taken a huge chunk out of farmers’ wallets. And the costs are rising daily. Not surprisingly, the chorus of unhappy farmers demanding immediate solutions is growing louder and more urgent.

The battle for control of Weyburn Inland Terminal has shifted to the courtroom after the board of directors tried to stop a group of dissident shareholders from soliciting proxies to scuttle the deal. The judge denied that request but did order the dissidents to amend the information circular they presented at a Feb. 4 meeting. The board has approved, and is seeking shareholder approval for, a $94.5 million takeover of WIT by Parrish & Heimbecker. The dissident group, including two directors who resigned late last year, want the company to remain independent.

WIT sale stirs challenge The vote is expected to take place at a Feb. 28 meeting. Chief executive officer Rob Davies, speaking for the company, said the board had to take the matter to court because the directors have an obligation to make sure all shareholders receive accurate information. He said the dissidents’ circular didn’t meet legal requirements because it wasn’t sent to all shareholders, wasn’t filed on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) and didn’t set out a plan for the company’s future. “If somebody else has a case to make, that’s fine,” Davies said. “The point is, there are rules that everybody has to follow.” He said one of the lawyers acting for the dissidents said they have no plan other than voting down the deal. Dale Mainil, speaking for the dissidents, said they admitted in court that certain information was missing from the circular. The amended version was to be posted on SEDAR Feb. 14 and immediately sent to shareholders. He said those speaking at the Feb. 4 meeting thought they weren’t allowed to say much about what they planned for the company because it would trigger a break fee. “We thought we complied,” he said. “We thought everything was covered.” However, Davies said the $4 million break fee is a standard type of agreement in a business transaction such as the proposed takeover. He said it is only triggered if another potential buyer offered a better price for WIT without doing any of the due diligence that WIT and P&H had to do to reach their agreement. “If the company breaches its obliga-


tions, the break fee applies,” he said. “Equally, if Parrish breaches their obligations, it’s the same cost to them.” Addressing one of the concerns expressed at the Feb. 4 meeting, Davies said the owners of grain condos at WIT should have the same arrangement with P&H as they do now. “The board is still very confident that what they’ve done, the work they’ve put in, the recommendation they’ve made is still the correct one,” he said. Liquidity is among the reasons WIT began exploring potential buyers. Mainil said the dissident group, which includes 11 men seeking nomination to the board of directors, has ideas about how to improve liquidity. “We have good momentum,” he said. “A lot of shareholders are coming to us, and they don’t want to sell.” WIT was the first farmer-owned and operated inland grain terminal on the Prairies. It opened in 1976, and the original capacity of one million bushels has since quadrupled. A takeover attempt by United Grain Growers in 1998 was voted down. About 1,500 shareholders are eligible to vote Feb. 28. The takeover proposal would see P&H pay $17.25 per share. In an open letter to shareholders, the WIT board said the decision had not been easy, but “the board is of the view that the proposed transaction will ensure that there continues to be a strong competitive force in the local area, that condo owners will be treated fairly, that $17.25 per WIT share is a fair price and the transaction provides 100 percent liquidity to all WIT shareholders.”

After a decent start to the 2013-14 crop year, grain movement through line companies slowed to a crawl this year. |

Troubling times » CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE Trains are moving in the Ituna area. They’re just not moving grain, at least not enough of it. Shymko, a long-time oat producer, has been watching with dismay as American millers, unable to source Canadian oats, are looking to Europe, where reliable supplies can be secured more easily. Cash prices for oats, at least at U.S. mills, are higher than ever but Shymko and others can’t get their product through. In a normal year, Shymko loads oats on a handful of producer cars at a leased facility near Kelliher, Sask.,

about 20 km away. This year, that option has also been taken away. Producer cars ordered in October still haven’t been spotted. All told, Shymko has 10 unfilled orders for hopper cars. It remains to be seen when they will arrive, or even if they will arrive at all. “Usually I’m about the only guy around here who loads producer cars, but this year there’s a whole whack of guys. “But so far, nothing.” The situation facing prairie farmers this winter varies from region to region. In Alberta, some grain farmers have done relatively well, says Irma farmer Kent Erickson. In his area, those who contracted

aggressively and took advantage of early delivery opportunities are in decent shape. Nonetheless, there is little question that the grain handling system is straining under the huge burden of last year’s record crop. According to Erickson, one obvious solution is to get liquid cargo such as oil off the rail system and into pipelines. Elsewhere, disgruntled producers are pointing to the removal of the single-desk grain marketing system as a key factor contributing to this year’s supply chain bottleneck. Under the single desk, grain deliver y opportunities were at least divided equitably between all farmer, they say. Others say the loss of single-desk marketing is irrelevant.



“It’s preposterous to suggest that the move to marketing freedom is the cause of this year’s shipping problems,” said Levi Wood, president of the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association. “In the first year of an open market, our wheat and barley moved to market without a hitch. The problems being experienced in this second year are instead related to the failure of the railways to provide adequate shipping capacity to move this year’s crop.” At Cutknife, Sask., grain grower Larry Millhouse said railway service might be inadequate but railway companies don’t deserve all of the blame. To some degree, farmers who didn’t contract aggressively enough sealed their own fate. “Sure, there’s probably some issues

with rail cars and a few hangups here and there … but how can I argue with rail performance?” said Millhouse. “We’re hauling today and we’re hauling all next week …. All the crop that I grew is going to be off the farm by the end of March.” Millhouse said rail companies are a convenient scapegoat but they aren’t the only ones fuelling farmers’ frustration. Grain companies are also turning the screws to farmers with widening basis levels, he said. “The rail companies might need a kick in the ass but the grain companies probably need a kick in the ass too,” Millhouse said.

PED reported in Manitoba hog barn Virus easily spread | Highly contagious swine disease making inroads into Western Canada BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

A deadly swine disease appears to have made its way into Western Canada. A suspected case of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PED), which is fatal to young piglets, was announced Feb. 13 in Manitoba but had not been confirmed by press time Feb. 14. The disease also crept closer to the Prairies last week when two Montana cases were announced. Pigs are frequently trucked between Canada and the United States, where PED is now endemic, and has been reported in 24 states. The virus has killed millions of piglets. Animal health specialists consider trucks to be a primary method of potential disease spread, although the specific mode of infection in all Canadian cases remains unconfirmed. Ontario had 16 cases in farrow-towean and farrow-to-finish opera-

tions in 11 counties as of Feb. 14, and one case had been reported in Prince Edward Island. Manitoba Pork Council chair Karl Kynoch said producers in his provi n c e a re f o l l ow i n g a p re p a re d response plan to contain the virus. “The site has been contained, and neighbours in the area are being contacted by veterinarians,” Kynoch said in a news release. Prairie producers are on tenterhooks as they monitor herds for the severe diarrhea and vomiting that characterize the disease. “We are now, for all intents and purposes, surrounded by the bug, now with cases in Montana and Manitoba,” said Alberta Pork chair Frank Novak. “I think that this last development here with Manitoba and Montana really is the final observation we need for anybody who would deny that we are at risk and would think it can’t happen and it can’t get here,” he said. “I think we’ve now seen how fast

We are now, for all intents and purposes, surrounded by the bug, now with cases in Montana and Manitoba. FRANK NOVAK ALBERTA PORK

this bug moves. We need to redouble our efforts and make sure we put in place and enforce our protocols and our biosecurity.” In a conference call Feb. 14, Alberta provincial veterinarian Gerald Hauer, Alberta Agriculture epidemiologist Julia Keenliside and veterinarian Frank Marshall urged producers to ensure transport trucks have wash and disinfection protocols and that those protocols are being followed. “There’s been some interesting things uncovered out there right now that are really disconcerting,” said Marshall about truck cleanliness.

Keenliside said Alberta has had three suspected cases but all proved negative. Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia have started environmental testing for the virus to gauge whether it is present, which indicates potential to infect pigs. “Just because PED is here and it is a ver y imminent threat for us, it doesn’t mean that every farm is going to be infected,” said Keenliside, who urged attention to hog operation biosecurity. Saskatchewan agriculture minister Lyle Stewart said producers in his province are satisfied with the process. “Our provincial veterinarian is very much on top of the situation. Producers, truckers are all well aware of the risk and how the disease is spread and so far I think precautions are being taken in a prudent way.” Dr. Catherine Furness of Ontario’s agriculture ministry said infected farms in the province range in size from 150 to 2,500 sows, involving

single site and multi-site operations. It has killed 100 percent of infected piglets. Older pigs show mild diarrhea and reduced appetite. Furness said PED has spread “in wave-like fashion” throughout a f f e c t e d b a r n s. A c o n n e c t i o n between the virus and porcine blood products in feed is still under investigation. One Ontario feed supplier voluntarily recalled some of its products last week when the agriculture department reported discovery of PED DNA in feed. Swine specialists from Kansas State University recommend that producers not use feed with porcine-derived products until more is known. Older pigs develop immunity to PED, and exposure of older gilts to the virus can generate protection. However, cases of re-infection have been reported in some American herds, raising questions about the virus’s virulence. PED affects only pigs and is no threat to human health.




Canola in soybeans not likely worth spraying




VANCOUVER — Kristen Podolsky was amazed by soybean fields across Manitoba last summer, but not for the right reasons. Podolsky, a Manitoba Pulse Growers Association production specialist, said she struggled to identify soybeans from the highway because many fields were inundated with volunteer canola. “In some cases I wasn’t sure if it was a soybean field or a canola field,” she said in January following her presentation at Manitoba Ag Days. “In Western Manitoba, I found it in 60 percent of fields.” A soybean field loaded with volunteer canola may be visually offensive and worrisome, but the Roundup resistant weed isn’t always a threat to soybean production, said Paul Gregoire, a University of Manitoba graduate student in plant science. Gregoire, who spoke at the Weed Science Society of America annual meeting held in Vancouver Feb. 3-6, said volunteer canola typically doesn’t reach a density that substantially restricts yields. “It seems like it is more of an aesthetic problem than an actual weed management problem.” Gregoire set up plot experiments in Manitoba in 2012 and 2013 to assess the yield loss from volunteer canola in soybeans and identify a weed density level that warranted spraying. He placed different concentrations of canola seed in the soybean plots to achieve a range of volunteer canola densities. Assuming a five percent yield loss as a threshold to take action, Gregoire found that volunteer canola densities of two to five plants per sq. metre might justify a herbicide treatment. Rob Gulden, a University of Manitoba weed scientist, said there isn’t a magic number that should prompt growers to spray volunteer canola. Researchers need to survey the densities of volunteer canola in soybean fields to assess the problem in Manitoba, he added. “It is an eyesore, that’s for sure … (but) are we going to hit the economic threshold? Well, in some cases maybe not,” he said. U of M scientists are studying volunteer canola in soybeans because a rotation of canola, wheat and beans has become a standard cropping system in parts of Manitoba. As an informal part of his research, Gregoire also wandered into soybean fields last summer to count the number of intrusive plants per sq. metre. He showed a photograph of a soybean crop infested with volunteer canola during his presentation in Vancouver. It looked like an agronomic problem at first glance, but the density of volunteer canola wasn’t particularly severe. “This first patch (had) 0.6 plants per sq. metre,” he said. “I would say that’s not worth looking at for control.” Another patch had 2.7 plants per sq. metre, which might warrant spraying, he said.

Railways blame weather for congestion Cold temperatures slow traffic | Farmers, agriculture minister say railways could do more BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Canadian farmers aren’t buying the cold weather excuse for slumping railway performance. Neither is the federal agriculture minister. Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway are blaming frigid temperatures for the slowdown in grain movement. “Extreme cold weather starting in early December became an issue hampering CN operations and leading to a downturn in transportation performance for all commodities, including grain,” said CN spokesperson Mark Hallman. “The continuing severe cold has slowed down the velocity of our operation and has affected not just grain but everything else we move.” CN has to use shorter trains once the weather drops below -25 C to consistently get air from the locomotives to the last rail car to release the brakes. The length of the trains can be reduced by as much as 20 to 30 percent, which means more trains need to operate to handle the same volume of commodities. That leads to increased congestion, a need for more crews, longer dwell times in switching yards and delays when trains meet on the tracks. “That eats up network capacity,” said Hallman. Michael Murphy, vice-president of government affairs for CP, had similar comments when he appeared at a House of Commons agriculture committee meeting last week. “CP has very extensive winter

preparations and actions to deal with winter operations. However, sustained cold below -25 C is a tipping point for railway operations,” he said. “We must act on added winter mitigations such as reduced train lengths and it is extremely challenging for equipment and people.” Robert Taylor, director of government affairs for CP, said the cold weather has a significant impact on train size. “We run less than 7,000 feet on CP once the winter operating condition kicks in,” he told the committee. “We’re running some trains up to 14,000 feet, so if you do that math, it’s quite significant.” Saskatoon has had 45 days this winter that were colder than -25 C, and Winnipeg had 48, according to Environment Canada. The yearly averages are 32 days in Saskatoon and 35 in Winnipeg. The forecast for February, March and April calls for a continuation of the trend of below average temperatures. However, the chances of dipping below -25 C in March are far slimmer than they are from December to February, said Environment Canada meteorologist John Paul Cragg. Farmers aren’t satisfied with the cold weather excuse for lackluster rail performance. “We understand that it has been cold, but it’s Canada and it gets cold every year,” said Rick White, general manager of the Canadian Canola Growers Association. “To us, it’s not an excuse. It is inexcusable.” He said farmers are disappointed with the lack of foresight and contingency planning by both national railways.

“All they do is shorten the trains and say it’s too cold.” White would like to see more investment in locomotives and crews so that just as much grain moves when temperatures inevitably dip below -25 C. He believes there should be an additional third train for every two on the tracks if railways are forced to shorten trains by 30 percent. “They can go bumper-to-bumper. It’s not rocket science,” said White. Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz is also upset with railway performance. “Looking backwards, you can see there’s absolutely no surge capacity,” he said. “I wouldn’t even begin to understand the myriad of issues that the railways say they face, but simply to say it’s cold weather, I think, is problematic.” Ritz agreed with White about how the railways could have better dealt with the frosty temperatures. “They say they’re building up to 130-car capacity trains and they’ve got to drop back to 70. Then put twice as many trains on the track. That would be the short answer for a neophyte such as myself,” he said. CN has said it will do its “level best” once the cold weather eases to help western Canadian farmers export record volumes of grain this crop year. “We expect to be able to restore our normal plan for train operations,” said Hallman. “And as our network velocity recovers, we anticipate that our grain service will ramp back up to equal or exceed our normal seasonal operating performance.”

Murphy delivered a similar message to the Commons agriculture committee. “We are confident that with weather permitting that we will soon return to stronger year-over-year gains on a current basis,” he said. CN’s car spots through the end of January were 6.5 percent ahead of the five-year average, even with all the cold weather issues, and unloads at west coast terminals were six percent ahead. CP has said its grain and grain product volumes from September to January are still 17 percent higher than the five-year average and eight percent higher than last year. Larry Weber, a grain analyst with Weber Commodities Inc., pointed out in a recent newsletter that the five-year average the railways are using includes two years when eight to 12 million acres of western Canadian farmland were lost to excessive moisture or flooding. However, Hallman said the port unload data is based on the first 26 weeks of all five years, when plenty of grain is available regardless of seeded acreage. There is always a strong marketing push during the post-harvest period. Lost acreage would show up in the last half of the year when railways run out of grain to move. He also said lost acres due to excessive moisture and flooding were primarily in CP’s territory. CN’s grain traffic was affected but to a lesser degree.

Ritz says no to higher loan limit Program use rises | Minister advises farmers close to $400,000 limit to use AgriInvest

Canola market will get sicker before it gets better: analyst




Gerry Ritz isn’t interested in raising cash advance limits. The Canadian Canola Growers Association recently approached the federal agriculture minister about doubling the $400,000 limit because farmers are unable to market their grain due to plugged elevators and slow rail service. “There is a big run on (advance) money right now. It’s looking like we need to increase those limits and we’ve asked minister Ritz to do that,” said Rick White, general manager of the association, which administers the cash advance program for about 25 commodities. He said demand for the Advance Payments Program is overwhelming this year. “No question about it. It is our biggest year ever with the program. It’s abnormally busy,” said White. More than 12,000 farmers have received advances this year, up from 10,000 last year. However, it is the amount being advanced that really tells the tale. The money doled out is up almost 40 percent year-on-year. As well, the program has been active in February, which is typically a slow month because farmers usually wait for the new program to begin April 1. “It tells me that farmers are not able to deliver the grain, that they need to pay the bills,” said White. “The squeeze is coming from lack of delivery opportunities, lack of marketing availability. It’s catching farmers in a bad spot right now.” Most farm input loans come due Feb. 15. Some banks have given farmers a one-month extension, but the prospects of being able to move grain to pay the loans is grim. White said many larger operations are running out of room on their cash advance limits. “We’ve got many more farmers at the $400,000 maximum than we’ve had in the past, that’s for sure. At least double,” he said. However, Ritz has no appetite for raising the $400,000 limit.

“The short answer is no,” he said. For one thing, he thinks the program is underused. Cash advance numbers are up, but only 27 percent of farmers are taking advantage of a program that advances them up to $100,000 interest-free. He said some big farmers have bumped up against the cap, but they represent a small portion of total applicants.

“I’m not going to give you the number, but I can tell you it’s almost single digits. It’s less than 10 percent of farmers that ever hit that cap,” said Ritz. He said raising the limit may help big operations, but he’s more concerned about small and mid-sized farms. “Certainly it would be appreciated by the five percent of farmers that are of that scale, but that to me just makes the big guys bigger and that’s not what government programs are or should be for,” he said. Ritz said farmers who are concerned about being able to service their input loans should take out a cash advance if they haven’t already and then access some of the $2 billion sitting in AgriInvest accounts. He also had advice for farmers

with input loans due from grain companies that also haven’t honoured their grain contracts. “I think I’d go in and do a little arm wrestling with them,” said Ritz. White said doubling the limit to $800,000 would require legislative change, which would be timeconsuming. He thinks an interim solution would be an order in council allowing growers to receive an extra $400,000 when the new program year begins April 1, which would essentially give them $800,000 until the 2013-14 advances come due Sept. 30. Ritz said that solution would still require the same political process. “Whether you do it in two shots of $400,000 or one shot of $800,000, it’s still going to take legislation to do it.”

The canola futures’ plunge below $400 per tonne Feb. 13 highlights the weakness underlying the crop, several analysts said. It’s not easy to attribute the drop to either fundamental factors or the actions of particular large players in the canola market. Some concluded that the canola market can’t handle any challenge to confidence. “It’s a pretty drastic move over two days and not a lot of stuff for people to hang their hats on,” said analyst Jon Driedger of FarmLink Marketing Solutions. Brian Voth of Agri-Trend Marketing noted the slump occurred as soybean oil futures rose sharply and other crop prices were stronger. “Soybeans are 20 cents from the contract highs, and you have canola making contract lows,” said Voth. “It’s just bizarre.” The spread between soybeans and canola widened to record levels. Canola was $8.94 per bushel at the close Feb. 13, while soybeans, in Canadian funds, were at $14.75 a bu. Analysts said Western Canada’s glutted supplies and lagging railway CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

Strong immediate demand for spring wheat has caused the March Minneapolis contract to post a premium over the May contract. When the nearby contract has a premium over deferred months it is called an inversion.

The break below $400 probably triggered a lot of automatic sell orders with few buyers interested in stepping in to buy a weak crop. “Why would you bother stepping in,” said Driedger. “Why not wait until it stops going down?” Errol Anderson of Pro Market Communications said the volatility is a symptom of an ailing market and won’t go away soon. “The canola market is just fullblown sick,” said Anderson. “It’s just got to do its thing, and it’ll get sicker before it gets better.” Anderson said canola futures will likely drop to $380 if $400 can’t hold. If canola rallies, he added, it will have trouble getting much higher than $400. Crop farmers with unpriced canola are probably complaining about the weakness of canola, but speculators who have called it right are likely smiling ear to ear. “Whoever’s shorted this thing is making a lot of money recently,” said Voth.

Choked railways are causing grief for U.S. millers and North American grain elevator companies, and the pain can be seen in spring wheat futures price spreads. Analysts and traders say millers are scrambling to find hard red spring wheat before they run out, which is causing a big inversion between March and May futures. “I think a lot of the mills are running on bin bottoms,” said Mike Krueger of the Money Farm, a farmer advisory service and risk management firm from Fargo, North Dakota. “We have U.S. flour mills that are at times desperate to get shipments.” Futures markets usually have “carry” within a single crop year, which means each futures contract later into the year will have a slightly higher price, representing the cost to the farmer of keeping crops in the bin longer. Carry “inverts,” or disappears, in unusual situations, which generally represents strong nearby commercial demand but less demand in the longer run. However, sometimes it represents a separation between supplies in the production region and demand in the delivery zone of the futures contract, which creates two separate market prices. In that case, the nearby futures price can shoot higher because supplies can’t get to the demand and the local demand market begins setting the price based on the local shortage. Some analysts say that has been happening with Minneapolis hard red spring wheat futures. March spring wheat futures were trading at $6.66 per bushel Feb. 14,

an almost 20 cent premium to the May futures at $6.47. In mid-December, the May contract had a 10 cent premium over March. The May premium suddenly disappeared at the beginning of January. March futures then began trading at a premium to May at the beginning of February.

At halfway point, wheat, canola exports might be attainable MARKET WATCH


Meeting export forecasts for major pulses is unlikely


t’s going to be challenging but not impossible to reach Agriculture Canada’s forecasts for canola and

wheat exports, domestic use and ending stocks, as long as the railways can up their game in the second half of the crop year. However, the news might not be so good for other crops. Don’t get me wrong, meeting the export forecasts is not success. The department forecasts a burdensome three million tonnes of carryout for canola and 9.3 million tonnes for wheat. We’ve run several stories recently about how problems in shipping the huge 2013 crop will result in price weakness lingering into the 2014-15 crop year and even into 2015-16. However, is the deteriorating performance of the railways this winter






making the ending stocks scenario worse? Figures from the Canadian Grain Commission and Statistics Canada help put a little more meat on the bones of this story. The commission has released grain handling and export statistics for Week 26, the halfway point of the crop year. The numbers are not a complete picture of exports, and the commission is having trouble aligning data in its weekly reports with its monthly reports. However, they give a good idea of what is going on. The commission said 7.64 million tonnes of wheat have been exported in the first 26 weeks of the crop year to Feb. 2, which is 44.4 percent of Agriculture Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full-year export target of 17.2 million. Canola exports are 3.79 million tonnes, 46.2 percent of the full-year target of 8.2 million tonnes. In each case, more than half of the total forecasted exports will have to move in the second half of the crop. Actually, I thought the situation would be worse than that. It is not unusual to move more than half of total annual exports in the second half of the year. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll leave out 2012-13 because exceptionally tight stocks reduced exports in the final few months of the crop year, but letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s look at the


46.2 % OF THE FULL YEAR TARGET OF 8.2 MILLION TONNES previous four years. More than 50 percent of wheat exports moved in the second half in 2011-12, 2010-11 and 2009-10 but not in 2008-09. In canola, the second half was dominant in 2011-12 and 2009-10. So the Agriculture Canada export forecasts are achievable for canola and wheat, if the rail and handling system show better co-ordination and we get lucky with the weather, such as no heavy spring snowstorms in the mountains and a normal spring road ban season. The system has much worse results for special crops. Pea exports to the end of Week 26 are only 964,500 tonnes, which is 35 percent of Agriculture Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forecast of 2.75 million. Lentil exports stood at 176,400 tonnes, a dismal 11 percent of the forecast for full-year exports of 1.65 million tonnes.

As for domestic canola use, the Canadian Oilseed Processors Association says members crushed 3.5 million tonnes of canola to Feb. 5, which is 48.6 percent of Agriculture Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full-year forecast of 7.2 million. The 7.2 million tonne forecast could be met if the crush industry could run at 80 percent of capacity for the rest of the year, which is close to what it is already running at. Last year, the crushing industry ran at 88 percent of capacity. I had feared that the situation was getting so bad that ending stocks of major crops might rise from the already terrible levels, but that is avoidable. The same canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be said for the major pulse crops. Things might not be worse than expected for the major crops, but the status quo is not acceptable, either. The situation is causing unprecedented discounts for Canadian grain relative to world prices. It is vitally important to put coordinating resources in place so that railways can more efficiently meet grain companiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; movement targets. Railways also need more locomotives on the rails. We need exceptional gain movement for the rest of the year to trim the carryover and support crop prices.

Cold winter sparks diesel price spike

In light trade, fed steers averaged $135.09 per hundredweight, down $3.05 and heifers were $133.82, down $4.68. Dressed trade was about $230 per cwt. delivered. Cattle sold last week were scheduled for slaughter in early March. Alberta-Saskatchewan showlist volumes were the second largest since the beginning of September. Packer-owned supply was larger, which moderated buying interest. Live cattle futures in Chicago rose despite weaker beef prices. The Alberta cash-to-futures basis widened to -$21.60, the weakest since February 2007. Weekly fed exports to Feb. 1 rose 29 percent to 7,808 head. Packer contract volumes appear to be larger for the second half of February giving feedlots less leverage. Market ready supplies should increase into March, but packers will likely reallocate hours to A grade slaughter as non-fed volumes seasonally decline.

COW PRICES RISE Tighter supply and good hamburger demand caused D1, D2 cows to climb to $80-$95, to average $88.42 up $5.08. D3s ranged $73-$85 to average $79.83 up $6.63. Weekly rail bids rose to $175-$180 per cwt. delivered. Butcher bulls averaged $91.36. Weekly western Canadian non-fed slaughter to Feb. 8 fell 14 percent to 7,516. Considering the reduced supply and strong demand, prices will likely rise this week

FEEDERS RISE Feeders across most classes gener-


Feeder prices rose on good demand. ally rose $1 per cwt. on good demand. Some buyers shifted interest to 400-600 lb. heifers, pressuring prices $2 higher. Calves lighter than 400 lb. were little changed with prices depending on quality. Alberta auction volume dipped one percent to 31,009 head. Weekly feeder exports to Feb. 1 were about steady at 8,266 head. The early surge of feeders to market the past few weeks should reduce feeder supplies in coming weeks. Bred cows ranged $1,100-$1,520 per head. Bred heifers ranged $1,200-$1,700.

BEEF FALLS U.S. boxed beef prices fell $4.55$5.41 last week. Weekly Canadian cutouts to Feb. 8 fell with AAA down $5.11 at $221.94 per cwt. and AA down $5.52 at $221.44. Montreal wholesale prices for delivery this week fell to $226-$228 per cwt.

More market information, analysis and statistics are available by becoming a Canfax subscriber by calling 403275-5110 or at

Iowa-southern Minnesota hogs delivered to packing plants sold at $62-$62.50 US per hundredweight Feb. 14, steady with Feb. 7. The estimated pork cut-out value was $94.33 per cwt. Feb. 14, up from $92.20 Feb. 7. Estimated weekly U.S. slaughter to Feb. 15 was 2.113 million, down from 2.171 million the previous week. Last year in the same week slaughter was 2.139 million.

BISON STEADY The Canadian Bison Association said Grade A bulls with desirable weights reached $3.85 Cdn per pound hot hanging weight. Grade A heifers sold up to $3.70. Quality 2013 bull calves 400-500 lb. averaged $2.42 per lb. live weight with 500-550 lb. bulls averaging $2.34. Heifers born in 2013 weighing 375475 lb. averaged about $2.20 per lb. in light trade, 2012 bulls and heifers 800-900 lb. were $1.90-$1.95 per lb. Animals outside the desirable buyer specifications may be discounted.

LAMBS STEADY Beaver Hill Auction in Tofield, Alta., reported 894 sheep and 68 goats sold Feb. 10. Wool lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $141-$168 per cwt., 70 to 85 lb. were $140-$161, 86 to 105 lb. were $138-

$151 and 106 lb. and heavier were $134-$148. Wool rams were $58-$75 per cwt. Cull ewes were $47-$97 and bred ewes were $90-$135 per head. Hair lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $135-$154 per cwt., 70 to 85 lb. were $130-$155, 86 to 105 lb. were $130$146 and 106 lb. and heavier were $130-$140. Hair rams were $62-$101 per cwt. Cull ewes were $50-$90. Good kid goats lighter than 50 lb. were $185-$235. Those heavier than 50 lb. were $180-$235 per cwt. Nannies were $60-$95 per cwt. Billies were $95-$130. Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported 1,597 sheep and lambs and 72 goats traded Feb. 10. All lambs traded at steady prices. Sheep were barely steady. Kid goats sold at premiums, while mature nannies were $10-$20 lower. All other goats sold steady.

Demand for heating oil in the United States and Eastern Canada typically pushes diesel prices above gasoline during the winter. This year, the gap between diesel and gas has been higher in Western Canada than in the East. An explosion at the Federated Co-op refinery in Regina Dec. 24 likely contributed to tighter supplies and higher prices in Western Canada. The refinery can process 130,000 barrels of petroleum per day. The explosion cut capacity to 60,000 barrels per day for several weeks. On Jan. 17, Federated said the refinery was able to process 90,000 barrels per day.

There is a 30-metre-high tower at a truck stop just west of Winnipeg where gasoline and diesel prices are posted. It has been particularly hard to ignore the massive sign this winter because diesel prices have been 25 to 30 cents higher than gasoline for weeks. As of Feb. 11, diesel prices in Winnipeg averaged $1.365 per litre, compared to $1.109 for gasoline, based on data from MJ Ervin and Associates, which surveys petroleum prices in 60 Canadian cities. The discrepancy in Lethbridge was even more severe: $1.382 per litre for diesel and $1.077 for gasoline Feb. 11. Americans are also coping with higher diesel prices. The U.S. Energy Infor mation Administration reported that diesel was selling for an average of $3.977 per gallon Feb. 10, while regular gasoline was $3.309 per gallon. Spencer Knipping, an Ontario energy ministry petroleum analyst, said diesel prices typically exceed gasoline in the winter because of heating oil demand in eastern North America. He said abnormally cold temperatures in the U.S. and Eastern Canada have propelled diesel prices higher than usual. Tom Kloza, founder of Oil Price

Information Service, a petroleum pricing and news organization in Maryland, said U.S. electrical utilities have bought an extraordinar y amount of diesel this winter. Kloza said natural gas resources are ample in North America, but a limited amount is readily available on demand. “There’s not a lot of downstream storage,” he said. “When it gets brutally cold for a period of time, you have natural gas curtailments or cutoffs.” Natural gas demand has been exceptionally high this winter, prompting suppliers to cut off gas several times in the United States. The curtailments forced utility companies to buy more diesel than usual as insurance. “We saw probably unprecedented demand from utilities…. It was happening … everywhere east of the Rockies in the United States,” Kloza said. “Utilities have to come in and buy diesel fuel to produce electricity … or to have it in case they lost gas…. That was what really prompted this huge spike in prices.” The price gap could last until the end of March, but Kloza said the opportunity to make money should encourage refineries to bolster diesel stocks. “This is something that may linger for the rest of the first quarter, but it’s not 2008 again where the price of

Data on losses by wildlife may improve compensation


eer leaping gracefully over a fence, or elk silhouetted against a setting sun, or geese describing a V against a cerulean prairie sky — all those sights bring pleasure and a sense of peace to those with the good fortune to see them. Such bucolic encounters with wildlife are a fringe benefit of rural life and a less frequent but no less enjoyable event for town or city dwellers. Rare is the farmer or rancher who doesn’t enjoy seeing nature’s beasts in their natural habitat; a habitat often provided and protected by landowners themselves. But deer, elk and geese also eat feed in stacks, swaths and grain piles that were destined for livestock. Ungulates can damage fences and compete for pasture. Carnivores such as coyotes, wolves, cougars and bears prey on calves, lambs and other stock, and can damage granaries, silage bags and bee yards. There is a price paid by those who host wildlife on their agricultural property, yet relatively little compensation is available. Some would argue that a certain amount of wildlife damage is just a cost of doing business for farmers and ranchers. It’s part of owning and managing property. Farmers and ranchers are likely to reject that argument. They may point out the value of the habitat, water sources and environmental diversity that they maintain, all of which make wildlife habitation possible. And they might legitimately ask what that service and supply are worth to the public. That very juxtaposition is what will make the outcome of an Alberta survey, now underway, so interesting. Jointly developed by Alberta Beef Producers and the Miistakis Institute, the survey on the economic impact of wildlife on beef producers includes this key question: “As part of doing business, I am willing to accept a loss each year due to wildlife of (fill in the blank) percentage of the total income earned from my beef operation.” Some will say zero. Some won’t. The

survey is anonymous, which is expected to encourage candour. The answer, coupled with the actual costs that producers assess in connection to wildlife damage, will bring hard numbers to the table. It will show producers’ degree of willingness to cope with wildlife in their operations. Hopefully, it will also indicate the true expense borne by those surveyed, given that wildlife damage is thought to be under-reported. After all, who wants to bother itemizing every broken fence or damaged grain bag that allows feed to moulder? Statistically sound data could lead the way to improved compensation plans. It could open the door to more meaningful discussions on how many deer or elk or bears or wild widgets are sustainable on the modern landscape. Further, it might allow various groups to begin work on a plan to recognize the ecological goods and services provided by farmers and ranchers. Such a plan has been discussed at many levels but few have been able to envision how it could work and what level of benefit it would have to producers, wildlife and the public. However, the difficulty shouldn’t discourage the effort. A workable plan could have application across the Prairies. All those possibilities are admittedly too much for one survey to shoulder. The point is that a compilation of actual costs, and data on producers’ willingness to bear them, are vital to future policies regarding wildlife and how it interacts with agriculture. Demands on the landscape are heavy. With more data, planning and foresight, deer can continue to gracefully leap through the landscape and grizzly bears can continue to do what they do in the woods. Producers and the public will be the richer for it. Bruce Dyck, Terry Fries, Barb Glen, D’Arce McMillan and Joanne Paulson collaborate in the writing of Western Producer editorials.

Connect with consumers to dispel ag myths on social media FOOD FOR THOUGHT



e live in a strange First World where most people are geographically and generationally removed from the farm. It is a world where consumers are preoccupied with a misplaced rural nostalgia, where “eating local” is king, where wheat is evil and where large operations are often referred to

as “factory farms.” This is a strange First World, where those of us who work on the farm or in the agricultural industry are befuddled by the constant bombardment of bad information from social media feeds. It leaves us wondering: what the heck is going on? In a poll administered at FarmTech in Edmonton in late January, 95 percent said they participated in conversations about agriculture and food production. The statistic is not that surprising, given that the audience comprised mostly producers (75 percent) with the remainder being agronomists and sales people. However, what might be surprising is that 85 percent of those polled said they have been involved in a conversation where things “got ugly.”

Why? Food is inherently personal and an important part of our social fabric, but topics around food and agricultural production have become more heated over the past several years. Most of us carry around mobile communication devices. When we have a question, we Google it or we seek opinions through our personal networks on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. And although information on the internet is plentiful, that information is not always correct. It can be difficult for consumers to know how to separate the “wheat” from the “chaff,” so to speak. It is also difficult for those of us who advocate for agriculture to find reliable information in a quick and easy way.

The good news is that plenty of good information is available. is one good online resource. It is a not-for-profitbased searchable resource about food and agriculture, in which more than 150 independent experts (mostly university) share their knowledge and provide easy-to-understand feedback to any number of questions. Check it out. Topics range from expert commentary on bees and neonicotinoid seed treatments to videos demonstrating the science of genetic modification in crop development. People are talking about agriculture and they are talking about it passionately. What can we do? Those of us who work the front lines of agriculture need to step up and

engage in these conversations and dispel the myths. We need to be accurate with information, be accountable for mistakes, but most of all, be authentic in our approaches. How we communicate with people is often more important than what we say to them. We need to connect with people on a personal level — in our homes and in our communities — and we need to do it from a sharedvalues perspective. We need to tell our agriculture stories in a way that works for us as individuals. It is the interplay of all our voices — together — that will be the voice for change in the long run.

Feds must compensate for CWB assets

Budget rehashes, regurgitates and reiterates



e are the four representative plaintiffs named in the class action lawsuit seeking to recover $17 billion in damages on behalf of western Canadian wheat and barley farmers stemming from the federal decision to end the Canadian Wheat Board. After assessing the Federal Court’s ruling on the government’s motion to dismiss our lawsuit, this is why we have decided to press ahead with an appeal. The CWB owned hard and soft assets at the time that its single desk was dissolved and the farmer board of directors dismissed. These assets had been paid for entirely by farmers. Hard assets include the building, rail cars, grain ships and information systems. The large value soft assets included customer relationships, quality premiums, staff development and the CWB brand. For the hard assets, pool accounts were charged a depreciation charge to pay for them in the years following the purchase. Thus, farmers paid directly out of their own pockets for these assets. In the final years of farmer control, farmers made these purchases with the understanding that all farmers would receive an income stream that more than offset the costs of the assets. The case on the soft assets is similar. The decision to invest in branding western Canadian wheat and barley and their products was an invest-

Farmers paid for the Canadian Wheat Board’s assets and deserve to be compensated for their seizure, the authors maintain. | FILE PHOTO ment strategy to move farmers higher up the value chain. Each of these investments was paid for by farmers. Decisions were always made based on the business case that the future stream of benefits to farmers would outweigh the costs of these investments. The branding contributed to Canadian grain topping the price charts during the price rally in 2008. The process of farmers investing in their future was ramped up following the move to a new corporate structure with farmer control in 1998: • The computer information system was rebuilt and modernized. • The building was renovated.

• A major branding initiative was developed to raise Canadian wheat and barley prices above the basic commodity values for these crops. One reason for this increase in investment was that the 1998 legislation made the investment climate clear. The value of investments depended on the future of the single desk. The future of the single desk was to be determined by a farmer vote. Thus, according to legislation at the time, the future stream of income from these investments would belong to farmers unless farmers voted to give them up. As a result, the case that farmers

deserve compensation for the seizure of these assets deserves further review for at least two reasons: • Farmers bought and paid for the assets. • Farmers made these investments in a business and legislated environment in which farmers were assured that they would capture the stream of benefits from these investments. The only way farmers would lose the benefits is if they chose to vote to give them up. The government not only seized the assets, they also changed the investment environment without the required farmer vote. It is particularly important that the laws on future benefits of investments be reviewed in light of the recent developments to establish wheat and barley commissions. These commissions will allegedly be allowed to invest in new varieties and other research, which will make western Canadian farmers more competitive in the long term. To be successful, farmers must know that these varieties will not be seized and turned over to the seed companies with which the varieties were developed to compete. Most international trade and investment agreements provide assurances that investors will be compensated if national rules are changed. It is imperative that Canadians test this to see if we can be assured parallel treatment in case assets that we have bought in one legislated environment are seized by a subsequent government.

Attention railways: winter brings cold. Prepare. HURSH ON AG



ou’d think this year’s railway shortfall would be the impetus to make meaningful changes in the system. Grain industry attention is focused on logistics, and all the main players are saying the same things. However, the railways are slippery and they have a history of getting their way. None of the export sectors are happy with rail performance, but the situation is dire for the grain industry, which has a 30 to 40 percent larger than normal crop to ship. More than 50,000 unfulfilled rail car orders represent real sales commitments that aren’t being met. About

50 ships are waiting to load at the West Coast. West coast export terminals are holding well below normal stocks because the grain hasn’t been arriving. At their peak in the fall, the railways were unloading around 10,000 railcars a week. Since December, that’s gone to hell in a hand basket. A huge carryover of grain is looming. The monetary loss to farmers and the Canadian economy is in the billions of dollars. The railways had their arguments down pat during testimony at the House of Commons agriculture committee, with the primary excuse being cold weather: much colder than normal, don’t you know. Locomotives can’t pull long trains and it can take hours just to get all the air brakes pressured up when the temperature drops below -25 C. There are no problems with railway resources, according to Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway. CP didn’t want to comment directly on the allegations that it has taken 400 locomotives and

2,700 rail cars out of service while reducing staff by 4,500 employees, saying instead that new locomotives will be much more efficient and that it’s actually adding resources and making investments. To hear the railways tell it, they’re right-sized. They had incredible movement in the fall before the cold weather hit and they’ll get back to those volumes as quickly as they can once the weather improves. It’s just the darn polar vortex that messed them up. Unfortunately, even if they can crank back up to 10,000 or more cars per week, it’s going to leave a massive carryover of grain on the Prairies. But don’t be too hard on the poor railways. It was a one in a 100 year crop and a one in a 100 year winter, by their reckoning. Everyone was surprised by the size of the crop, and movement was slow in August because the harvest was late and the system wasn’t demanding early movement. Beyond hoping for warmer weather, what are the railways going to do

to help solve the short-term situation? Well, to hear them tell it, they certainly can’t find significant new capacity overnight, even if they thought it was needed. However, they admit they could provide greater surge capacity, given the proper financial incentives. They point out that there are market-based mechanisms in the United States for allocation of capacity. Freight trades at a premium during peak periods through a bid car system. No grain revenue cap down there. While it may seem galling to reward CN and CP for substandard performance, the only medium to longterm solution would seem to be an incentive system that encourages greater movement, particularly during peak times. Maybe there’s a way to design it with both financial carrots and sticks. We should also issue them a calendar that clearly indicates when winter weather typically arrives each year.

n the WP newsroom, there is a television. It is usually tuned into news or the government channel, but one morning last week, a few of us were cheering on the Canadian women’s Olympic hockey team. As more than one pundit has suggested, perhaps that kind of behaviour is what finance minister Jim Flaherty was hoping for when he delivered his not-too-exciting budget. Maybe no one would notice if everyone was tuned in to Sochi. No such luck. We kept our bit of hockey-watching hooky down to about seven minutes, and like other news organizations, got back to watching government. For example, take the lack of detail surrounding infrastructure support for municipalities. Flaherty originally said the details would come down at the end of March. Did he not have an entire year to flesh this out? Yes, he did. The Building Canada Fund, with $14 billion in funding over 10 years, was originally announced in the last budget. Calgary mayor Naheed Nenshi pointed out that the end of March is already moving into the construction season, and that it was important the federal government announce the funding criteria so that “particularly smaller municipalities can make preparations.” The Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association echoed the point. “Saskatchewan’s villages, towns and cities have been repeatedly promised support by the federal government to meet the challenges posed by aging infrastructure,” said SUMA president Debra Button in a news release. “We are still left waiting for details.” Apparently the government listened for once, and moved up the fund details announcement to Feb. 13. That was certainly better than March 31, but not nearly as good as several months ago. What needs to be understood is that this is not, in the strictest sense, new money. It’s the same fund that was announced in 2007, only updated — and with less money in it. Even Infrastructure Canada’s website admits that the “new” fund stretches over 10 years instead of seven, “so there will be a reduction in the annual average funding for most provinces and territories.” The gas tax fund remains available as well, but there is still no additional money here. It likely won’t touch the enormous need for infrastructure support in any of the prairie provinces, where we need better roads, better bridges, better flood mitigation and much, much more.

The Watertown corridor south of Pincher Creek, (Alta.,) is not being recognized as an area worthy of environmental protection. The destruction of this pristine and valuable landscape will be forever and irreversibly damaged by industrial wind power development. The Alberta government plans to enact the South Saskatchewan Regional Plan (SSRP) by the end of 2014. It establishes a government appointed board to control land-use planning, overriding the rights of local municipal governments and landowners on crown and private land.

The primary focus of the SSRP is economic development strategies and objectives, two of which are removing barriers to renewable energy development and promoting power infrastructure that supports linkages to markets. Take a drive along Highway 3 and north between Pincher Station and Brocket and experience industrial scale wind development and the visual impact, noise, flicker and disturbing vibrations and consider the impact of 24/7 exposure. This is not compatible with wildlife and the natural beauty of our area, families, community values, tourism, recreation, quality of life, fair land values and much more. A few local landowners profit while

the majority pay a high price and endure unjust negative impacts. The Alberta government remains committed to its Green Energy agenda to meet CO2 emission reduction targets. Wind power is not green energy. It is an inefficient and unreliable source of power, which requires fossil fuel back-up and hundreds of kilometres of transmission infrastructure…. Wind developers and power companies are in business to make money and maximize profits for investors while generous government subsidies distort common sense economics by providing strong incentives to build, with no limits. Neither serves the best interests of the people or the environment.

Are we to become victims of government agendas and corporate power, or can we, as a community, become informed and stand united to protect one another as residents and landowners in community, as protectors of the environment and stewards of the land? Public consultation on the SSRP closes Feb. 28. Contact your MLA, mayor or reeve for information on how this legislation will impact you and the future of this area. Get involved.

WE’RE IN TROUBLE To the Editor:

We know a thing or two about disease control. Two modes of action are better than one. It’s the first lesson in disease control ®

and resistance management. With its two active ingredients, Quilt fungicide prevents disease and delivers curative properties too. Shouldn’t your pulse fungicide protect you both ways?

In 40 years of farming, I’ve never witnessed the collapse of the grain industry like I have in the last five months. What is the problem? I guess for 40 years of cheap labour, I have the right to voice my opinion. Politicians now want to kick it around Parliament when they go back to work, if that is what they call it. The problem with the grain industry, as I see it, is the oil business. Today there is a lot of oil coming out of the ground and it has to be moved. Mixing oil with something usually smooths out the operation. With the grain industr y, things just get gummed up. Everything just slows down. Grain builds up and prices fall. Our neighbours want our oil and don’t care if we sell our grain unless they can get it cheaper, killing two birds with one stone. We are facing a long-term problem. Until these pipelines are built, our railroads are going to be moving the oil, if the pipelines are ever built. Adding the huge increase in oil tanker cars to the rail system has hurt grain movement. They say not, but the backlog, I think, proves it. Crop failure or a reduction in seeded acres may be our only way out. If grain builds up in the system, prices fall. This is no joke, Mr. (prime minister Stephen) Harper and Mr. (agriculture minister Gerry) Ritz, we are in real trouble. I never thought a bumper crop would hurt us so much, but I never factored in oil. I was always afraid of what would happen in a buyers’ market without a true wheat board. The stories my uncles told me about the beatings they took before the wheat board still haunt me. I hope and pray this is not a race to the bottom…. Miles Moore, Outlook, Sask.

In 1996, genetically engineered, also known as genetically modified, crops were first commercialized. Through manipulation by man, gene transfer between similar and different life forms was accomplished. GE crops were engineered to be Roundup Ready. This broad-spectrum glyphosate herbicide would kill weeds but not the crop. At first blush the technology was a miracle. In less than 20 years, non-corpo-

OPINION rately funded scientific studies and research have determined this technology is not a miracle. GE food through correlation graphs has been directly linked to gastro-intestinal disorders like auto-immunity, celiac, Crohn’s disease and leaky gut, infertility, kidney and liver damage, obesity, depression, Alzheimer’s, cancer and autism.… Dr. Thierry Vrain, 30 years a genetic engineer with Agriculture Canada, cautions there is no acute toxicity to GE foods and the use of glyphosate. We won’t die immediately. He does, however, warn over time ingestion of these modified foods inhibits enzymes and the resultant health effects are slow and insidious. It is easy to point a finger at the big five GE-driven corporations, yet they are simply doing their jobs. Through innovation, marketing and spin their bottom line is healthy and

dynamic…. Fault for allowing GE products into our food system lands squarely on the shoulders of our elected representatives. Willful blindness is prevalent amongst our politicians, and it appears our regulatory bodies as well. It’s time for them to review all the studies on GE. The studies not favourable to the corporate interests of the chemical companies have been quashed. The politicians will have to dig deep to unearth them…. Due diligence and sober second thought must happen now and the government must take seriously their responsibility for the health and well-being of all citizens. GE ingredients or Roundup residue are found in the majority of processed and fast food from baby food to granola bars, all meat raised in confined animal feeding operations, all non-organic dairy and most bakery products. Without government

intervention, being pro-active and getting off the GE diet is not just challenging, it is proving to be next to impossible. J. L. Chalmers, Claresholm, Alta.

JUST ANOTHER DAY To the Editor: Well, well, oil spill at Rowatt, just south of Regina. Close enough yet for local rampant consumerism to pay attention? “Apparently no immediate danger,” they say. What does that even mean? The danger isn’t until that toxin soaks into the aquifers and surrounding productive farmland? “Quick reaction time by Enbridge.” Oh boy. More media spin to put the best shoe on disaster?


Why are we even using such toxins to run our economy when the technology is already there to transition into clean energy? That logical transition is being implemented all over the world. The only thing lacking in Canada is the political and industrial will to embrace that logical change. So, let’s look at those two points. Industry exists No. 1 to make profits for investors. All other considerations are at least secondary. Costs of damage control must be justified in quarterly financial reports. Having an environmental conscience often reduces profits. If too much money is being spent on environmental protection to negatively affect profits, that offending corporate sub-entity causing the deficit can be abandoned or collapsed into bankruptcy, reducing financial exposure in liabilities to the mother company. For example, the rail company Montreal Maine and

Atlantic carrying the toxins that devastated Lac Megantic, Que., in explosions, fire, 47 deaths and huge environmental damage has filed for bankruptcy. The federal government wants to use the Lac Megantic disaster as an opportunity to spin for pipelines. But what’s the difference? Pipelines are rupturing all over the world, causing huge damages. Aging infrastructure plus cost-cutting measures in both industry and government makes those disasters inevitable. Unfortunately, our governments, both provincially and federally, are so in bed with industry that they, too, can’t see very far beyond that next quarterly financial report. An energy spill in solar electrical generation is no more harmful than just another nice sunny day. Greg Chatterson, Fort San, Sask.

hristians can get caught in a comfortable rut. Trying to live faith-filled lives can become routine. Church is a friendly place of belonging. In times of trouble, folks offer comfort and support. But nothing stays the same, and we are challenged to climb out of our rut. Do we find opportunity to look afresh at ourselves, our church and our understanding about our faith? Do we feel angry and dig deeper into the rut? Or do we give up our belonging? Change is inevitable these days, even in the church. Children grow older and refuse to follow the ordered life of their parents. Older mentors, our source of wisdom, pass away. Our community becomes more global with an influx of people from other cultures and faiths. And others become more vocal in speaking about failings they see within the churches around them. This can be a time when questions become more important than answers. Believers may find it helpful to visit other congregations and have discussions about how their church might serve the extended community. For example, with new immigrants or with First Nations neighbours, we may learn from their cultures. Or we may listen to the challenges our teenagers face and help them find answers. Tony de Mello, a Jesuit priest from India known for his thoughtful spiritual teachings, reminded listeners that “an elephant would sooner fit in a mouse’s swimming trunks than God would fit our conceptions.” God is so great and we are so small. There is always the need to grow spiritually and discover God beyond the stained glass windows. This growing awareness can enrich and enable our lives.

particular variety. That entitles them to additional seed and one to three years of evaluation to see if they want to take the next step in marketing the variety. The 15 varieties were on display Feb. 12 at Agriculture Canada’s research centre in Lethbridge. Two new chip varieties show promise for higher yield, fewer internal defects, better storage and longer shelf life. One french fry variety and 12 suitable for the fresh market were also lined up. “What is on show today are lines that are now going to be released into the industry so they can test them,” said Susan Smienk, a potato breeding research technician at the centre. “They’re not named varieties at this stage.” Western Canadian potato growers have expressed concern over federal changes that eliminated a westernbased potato breeder. There used to be one breeder in Fredericton and another in Lethbridge, but now the national breeding program runs from Fredericton, headed by Benoit Bizimungu, who used to be based in Lethbridge.

“It’s operating in a little bit different model than traditionally, but essentially there’s a national breeding program that’s headed out of our Fredericton potato research centre,” said Agriculture Canada crop biologist Brian Beres. “Nothing really changed from the adaptation side, nor from the breeding side for southern Alberta and Western Canada. So Benoit directs the staff here. The same staff complement exists on the support side.” The breeding needs of growers in Eastern Canada differ from those in the West, where 70 percent of potato varieties are bred for french fries or potato chips. In the East, emphasis is on fresh market potatoes. “As far as the activities and the targets and the objectives in Western Canada, that hasn’t changed,” Beres said. Agriculture Canada potato breeders in Lethbridge have developed 21 potato varieties since 1964, most of them within the last decade. Among them are AC Maple Gold, AC Glacier Chip, Alta Russet, Northstar, Starburst and AAC Alta Rose. Alberta potato growers contract to a number of processors, including McCains, Cavendish, Lamb Weston, Hostess Frito-Lay and Old Dutch. Potato Growers of Alberta executive director Terence Hochstein said in a recent report that increased national and international competition among processors is reducing profit margins. That is affecting grower contracts and putting pressure on the PGA negotiating committee to establish acceptable deals.





Sask. gov’t to meet with grain companies

Producer Car Shippers of Canada disbands Changing industry | Lack of interest and grain marketing changes force group to dissolve BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM


A delegation of Saskatchewan cabinet ministers was expected to meet with grain companies in Winnipeg Feb. 14, after deadlines for this issue, to seek solutions to the transportation backlog. Premier Brad Wall said he was sending agriculture minister Lyle Stewart, economy minister Bill Boyd, highways and infrastructure minister Don McMorris, and Stewart’s lesgislative secretary, MLA Scott Moe, to meet with stakeholders, including the railways. He said the delegation would encourage the grain companies to work on service contracts with the railways under the Fair Rail Freight Service Act. None of the major companies has negotiated an agreement with a major railway, although the legislation was passed last June. Under the legislation, the railways must offer service level agreements if a grain company requests one. The Canadian Transportation Agency arbitrates if negotiations break down. “One of the purposes for this visit is to encourage the grain companies, if they’re not satisfied with the service they’ve been getting from the railways, to actually test the legislation,” said Stewart. “We’re not sure if it does work.” The Western Grain Elevator Association said no service level agreements have been attempted because the act doesn’t give shippers the power to negotiate monetary penalties. As well, the arbitrator can’t rule on penalties. The act does allow for a penalty of up to $100,000 for each violation of an arbitrated service agreement, but WGEA executive director Wade Sobkowich said that’s “peanuts” for a railway. Plus, it’s paid to the federal government rather than to the shipper. He also said the service agreements are only good for one year, which would put shippers and railways in constant negotiations. The legislation needs changes, he said. Stewart said railways clearly need surge capacity to handle a bumper crop, and Sobkowich agreed. Shippers of other commodities are also complaining about rail service, Stewart said. Sobkowich said filing a service complaint with the CTA is the only other way to obtain a financial penalty from a railway, but that can be done only after there has been damage. Wall said the economy is suffering, and Canada risks its reputation as a supplier to emerging economies that want food and energy security. He stopped short of saying grain should receive preferential treatment after harvest, but he said a case could be made for railways giving agricultural products more attention at certain times of the year. “I think a lot of farmers are out there thinking to themselves and recounting many, many cold winters in the past when we’ve had maybe not a record harvest but a big one and we certainly haven’t seen this degree of backlog,” he said.


An organization that has represented the interests of producer car shippers in Western Canada since 2007 has reached the end of the line. Producer Car Shippers of Canada Inc. (PCSC), held its final annual meeting last December, said former president Tim Coulter. The organization is now in the process of legally dissolving, leaving producer car shippers without a formal organization. “We’re winding down,” said Coulter, a farmer and producer car ship-

per from Briercrest, Sask. “We’ve asked our lawyers to dissolve the organization.” Coulter said the decision was prompted by a variety of factors, including changes to the grain marketing environment. Under single desk grain marketing, CWB collected a levy of $20 on each producer car that was loaded with board grain and forwarded it to the PCSC, which used it to fund day-today operations. The process is now more difficult, and some grain companies are reluctant to collect the fees on the organization’s behalf.

“We did have a couple of organizations that were willing to forward us some of the funding that was being collected, but the majority of them … didn’t want to be bothered with the administration of a $20 fee,” he said. “It just became too difficult to try and figure out how we were going to handle (the collection of association fees), plus there was a lack of interest, the same as with any organization. It’s hard to get people involved.” Coulter said the decision to fold will not affect farmers’ ability to order and use producer cars, but it will mean that they do not have an organization to represent their interests

and express shippers’ views in a unified and co-ordinated manner. Ironically, the dissolution of PCSC comes as interest in shipping grain in producer cars is increasing. “It’s kind of strange because normally we might get a couple or three calls every once in a while about producer cars, but after we decided that it was time to wrap up the organization, then the phone started ringing off the hook because now people can’t get cars at their local elevators,” he said. The economics of shipping grain in producer cars is still attractive to many growers, he added.

Adding fusarium gene to barley may cause backlash BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

The fight against fusarium head blight could be won with genetically modified plants. “Conventional breeding is not going to stop, but I believe we can layer on some additional benefits with a transgenic approach,” said Phil Breigtzer of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, who is one of the few researchers working on fusarium resistant barley. He told the Western Barley Growers Association’s annual meeting held in

Calgary Feb. 13-14 that disease resistance could be achieved by inserting an extra gene from the fusarium genome into barley DNA. However, it would have to be done without sacrificing yield or malting qualities. A plant could be created in two years, but an actual variety is a long way from commercialization. The complicated RNA interference process could be a huge boon to farmers, but consumers may resist GM beer. “Consumers don’t know it, but delivering a product with lower

mycotoxin levels is of great benefit to them,” Breigtzer said. Beer made from fusarium infected barley can produce too much foam, as well as harmful mycotoxins. RNAi technology can shut down dangerous fusarium genes and hopefully make the fungus less infectious. The fusarium genome has been sequenced, and scientists have isolated the genes responsible for producing mycotoxins. Other research programs using the same technology have been able to incorporate powdery mildew resis-

tance into wheat and barley and make tobacco resistant to a fusarium specific to that crop. “The proofs of concept are out there,” Breigtzer said. There are potential problems with the RNAi process, including the possibility that transferred genes could become mixed up or have only partial copies because genomes are always in flux. The trick in transference is to find specific enzymes present at the ends of segments, which then make them easier to move. The greater challenge, however, is

contending with regulators, who may reject the plants. Speakers at the barley growers’ meeting agreed that limited money is available in Canada for barley research. Available funds are spread around to develop new varieties that yield more, have better agronomic properties or produce better malting qualities, as well as offer disease resistance. Most new barley varieties come out of a few public breeding programs funded with government money or farmer contributions through checkoffs.


Canadian cattle heading south not good for packers, barley growers BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Dry cows sold for as much as $100 per hundredweight in central Alberta Feb. 13. However, even with these record prices, the Canadian beef industry is on an uphill drive in low gear. Drought, BSE and a revised country-of-origin labelling law in the United States have battered the Canadian industry since 2002. The legislation, which came into effect in November, has created uncertainty with its strict segregation

requirements between foreign and domestic livestock in the U.S. Anne Wasko, a market analyst, said this has prompted Canadian prices to sink far below U.S. bids. “Typically our market trades around $10 below, but now we are starting to talk for the first part of 2014 as much as $20 a hundred(weight),” she told the Western Barley Growers Association’s annual meeting Feb. 13. Some of that discount is masked by record prices. The Canfax report for the week of Feb. 10 said the western Canadian feeder index established a new high Feb. 7 at

$191.04 per cwt., while butcher bulls traded at their highest levels since August, when they averaged $90 per cwt. Large numbers of feeder cattle from Western Canada are moving south, even with the added costs of COOL. A shortage of cattle on both sides of the border means bids are fierce. As a result, nearly 100,000 feeders left Canada between November and January. That should concern barley growers. A steer consumes about a tonne of barley to achieve market weight,

which means barley requirements drop by 300,000 tonnes if 300,000 head are exported. “The concern over increased feeder cattle exports is that they are not going to stay in the Canadian feedlot, they are not going to be here for a Canadian packing plant and we are already looking at shrinking supplies,” Wasko said. Feed grain prices between Lethbridge barley and Omaha corn also affect competitiveness. There have been times when Lethbridge barley was higher than corn, which meant the cost of gain

was cheaper in Nebraska. However, Alberta has the feeding advantage when this reverses, with corn more than $6 per bushel. Wasko said the spread between corn and barley is tight again, and the advantage is back in Nebraska. Canada should be looking at expansion because of lower feed grain prices, good moisture and improved profits, but Wasko estimated the herd will be down another one percent when Statistics Canada releases inventory numbers March 1. The cow herd has shrunk by 25 percent since 2005.

Provincial officials can tap into infrastructure fund later this year

Little new in federal budget


Provincial officials can begin sorting through lists of potential projects now that the federal government has released its 10-year infrastructure plan. The details of the $53-billion New Building Canada Plan are still unclear, but the money is supposed to be available beginning this spring. Prime minister Stephen Harper announced the plan Feb. 13, two days after the federal budget. “Our government understands the vital importance of infrastructure and is proud to be implementing the largest long-term infrastructure plan in Canadian history,” he said in a statement. The plan was first announced in the 2013 budget, and the lack of details in the 2014 budget concerned municipal and provincial leaders. However, officials can begin to address their infrastructure challenges now that the general framework has been announced,. And there are many. Organizations representing rural municipalities have been pointing for years to aging bridges and roads that require hundreds of billions of dollars to repair let alone replace. Government relations minister Jim Reiter is reluctant to put a dollar figure on what Saskatchewan requires but said it is obviously in the billions.

One community estimated at the recent Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association convention that it needs $40 million. “There are clearly a lot of projects around the province that need to be done,” Reiter said. The plan makes $5.4 billion available to the prairie provinces from several funds. The New Building Canada Fund contains $14 billion: $4 billion for projects of national significance and $10 billion for the Provincial-Territorial-Infrastructure Component (PTIC) for projects of national, local or regional significance. The $32 billion Community Improvement Fund includes funds from the gas tax and provides a GST rebate to municipalities. The P3 Canada Fund makes $1.25 billion available for public-private partnerships, while another $6 billion is available through existing programs. Saskatchewan will receive slightly more than $1 billion from the two main funds within the plan: $437 million from the New Building Canada Fund and $613 million from the Gas Tax Fund. Manitoba’s dedicated funding comes in at $1.2 billion: $467 million and $713 million from each fund respectively. Alberta’s funding is $942 million from the Building Canada fund and $2.27 billion from the gas tax fund.


Food safety | CFIA receives boost in funding to add inspectors BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Farm organizations welcomed additional spending on food safety announced in the Feb. 11 federal budget, in the absence of major new agricultural initiatives. With Growing Forward 2 already in place as the industry’s main agricultural policy framework, leaders w e re n ’ t e x p e c t i n g s i g n i f i c a nt announcements. Canadian Federation of Agriculture vice-president Humphrey Banack noted that considering where the government is at in the election cycle, the budget was as expected. Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz described the budget as austere and said Canadians want balanced books. At the same time there is required spending, and extra funding to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is an example of that in the 2014 budget, he said. An extra $390 million to the CFIA will be used to hire more inspectors and strengthen food safety programs. “Consumers across Canada and around the world look to Canada to have a highly safe and nutritious food system and we have to ensure that,” said Banack.


He said food recalls often aren’t based on what farmers are doing on the farm, yet the costs trickle down. “We have to catch (problems) faster and make sure protocols are being followed,” he said. Ritz said more than 200 inspectors will be hired in areas such as varietal registration and fruits and vegetables. The spending included $153.6 million over five years for food safety programs targeted at high-risk foods to ensure trade continues and $30.7 million to establish a national Food Safety Information Network to link laboratories and food safety authorities. Spending of $205.5 million on continued routine BSE surveillance testing was also announced. The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association said it was pleased with that. “The CCA appreciates the commitment and funding that is needed to reach negligible risk status as early as next year and to maintain effective surveillance and prevention mea-

sures,” it said. Saskatchewan agriculture minister Lyle Stewart said he had expected that funding would continue. “That is worthy of note,” he said, after criticizing the budget as “a bit Central Canada centric.” Liberal agriculture critic Mark Eyking said he was outraged there was no mention in the budget of grain transportation woes on the Prairies. “The way I see it is, grain is not a priority anymore,” he said. The government shouldn’t be “thumping their chests” over more inspectors, he added, when CFIA is dysfunctional because the government made a mess of it. Other measures in the 2014 budget included $305 million over five years for improved rural and northern broadband access. The tax deferral available when producers must sell livestock due to drought or flood will be expanded to include bees and breeding horses older than 12 months. Banack added the development of a made-in-Canada branding campaign to raise consumer awareness is also a positive step. CFA was hoping that tax issues regarding restricted farm loss rules, intergenerational transfer and dividing farm corporations would be addressed, but they were not.

Saskatchewan grain farmer Glenn Tait says grain movement around North Battleford, Sask., has been very slow this winter. If delivery opportunities don’t improve soon, Tait and other farmers in the area could carry 30 to 50 percent of their 2013 production forward into the 2014-15 crop year.



Grain transportation problems are turning an oversupplied market into a disaster, slashing grain prices and ballooning the amount of crop carried over into the new year. Unable to deliver, farmers are struggling with cash flow problems. Processors are curtailing operations for lack of raw product and importers that normally buy from Canada are seeking more reliable supplies. Western Producer reporter Brian Cross begins a multi-week transportation special report with a cross section of farmers’ views on what is causing the problem.


anadian farmers who harvested a record 95 million tonne crop last year are swimming in an ocean of undelivered grain. Much of it will remain in farm storage to start the next crop year. The sheer volume of the bin-busting harvest weighs heavily on the Canadian grain industry as grain movement slows to a crawl in the dead of winter. Some farmers are in decent shape, notably those who contracted grain early and aggressively. But others are desperately treading water and looking for a lifeline, including those who took a wait-andsee approach to selling their crop. Still others see an industry that is floundering, unable to stay afloat in a hostile environment where railways have too much power and farmers too little. Many positive aspects of the grain transportation system have been swept out to sea. “I’m not sure what the right word is to describe the situation this year,” said Randy Hoback, a former farmer who is now a Conservative MP for Prince Albert, Sask. “Is it disaster? Is it incompetent? A whole bunch of words come to mind,

but no matter how you describe it, it looks like CN (Canadian National Railway) and CP (Canadian Pacific Railway) have not kept up with the capacity that’s required to move products from Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba to port,” he said. “Unfortunately, the people who are going to pay for that are the farmers.” Hoback, a member of the House of Commons’ standing committee on agriculture, has heard all kinds of grain transportation horror stories. In northeastern Saskatchewan, a short-line railway that loads producer cars is 200 hopper cars behind in order fulfillment. In central Saskatchewan, an oat grower has accumulated 80 cars of milling oats that are loaded and ready to be moved to a U.S. miller. The cars have sat in a Saskatoon rail yard for weeks, waiting for the locomotive power and rail capacity to move them. Meanwhile, American end users who depend on Canadian grain are running their plants at reduced capacity. Hoback said one U.S. oat miller is 700 hopper cars behind in production. Another has decided to import oats from northern Europe.

At the West Coast, ships line up waiting for grain. Pulse Canada and the Western Canadian Grain Elevators Association said last week that 54 grain vessels were waiting at the West Coast to load at Vancouver and Prince Rupert terminals, pushing total vessel demurrage fees over $25 million. Outstanding grain car orders in Western Canada have reached an unprecedented 51,000 cars, said the WGEA. Hoback said all factors point to a system that has failed farmers and agricultural shippers. “Western Canada’s farmers have gone through a process to make an efficient delivery system for the railways,” Hoback said. “We got rid of our branch lines, we got rid of our small-town elevators, we went to high-throughput terminals and we all went out and bought super-Bs to deliver grain to those terminals.… Farmers gave up a lot to get a more efficient system, but the paybacks didn’t come back to them.” Glenn Tait of Meota, Sask., is one of those farmers caught in the middle. He said the railways deserve some of the blame for this year’s transportation problems, but not all of it.

Grain is piled up across the Prairies in bins, bags and piles like this one near Cutknife, Sask. | BRIAN CROSS PHOTOS Tait thinks much of the blame resides with the federal government and its decision to eliminate CWB’s single desk. Tait, a self-professed CWB supporter and a current director of the National Farmers Union, said the wheat board did more than market grain. It also played an important role in co-ordinating grain movement across the Prairies, negotiating capacity with rail companies and exerting influence over other players in the system. Tait doesn’t contend that transportation problems were non-existent under single desk marketing. However, he argues that CWB moved prairie wheat to market in a more orderly and equitable fashion, giving all producers an equal opportunity to sell some of their grain. “This is the biggest crop we’ve ever grown and there would be trouble moving it out,” said Tait, who projects

he will carry one-third of last year’s production forward into the new crop year. “Even with the CWB in place, we might have five or 10 percent left over, but … if we continue the way we’re going right now, we could have between a third to half of our crop left as of Aug. 1.” Tait said many farmers were cautious marketing last year’s bumper crop. Perhaps by force of habit or perhaps by necessity, many growers focused first on harvesting and later on selling their grain. That plan left many in a desperate situation. He said farmers in the Meota area are looking for any chance to deliver grain. Elevators at nearby North Battleford are filled to capacity and rail sidings are plugged with hopper cars that were loaded weeks earlier.





Producer car shipments gain popularity M ounting frustration over the languid pace of shipments through western Canadian grain elevators has prompted more prairie grain farmers to look elsewhere for delivery opportunities, including producer car loading sites. Canadian Grain Commission statistics show producer car shipments through the first five months of the 2013-14 crop year are up sharply from 2012-13. As of early January, more than 5,250 producer cars have been shipped this crop year, up 35 percent from the 3,900 cars shipped in the same period a year earlier. Producer car shipments of wheat, durum, oats, barley and flaxseed are all higher, although oats, barley and flax have seen the largest gains. The number of producer cars carrying Canadian oats to market in the first five months has soared to nearly 1,100, up 162 percent from the same period last year. Barley cars have also more than doubled to 183. Flax cars are up from eight last year to 41 this year.

The statistics also show a significant increase in producer cars moving prairie grain to domestic and American end users as opposed to Canadian export terminals. Producer cars hauling wheat, durum, barley and oats to destinations other than export terminals at Thunder Bay, Vancouver, Prince Rupert and Churchill have more than tripled, jumping to more than 2,000 cars from 659 cars in the first five months of 2012-13. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Based on the numbers â&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apparent that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a market (for Canadian grain) in the U.S. â&#x20AC;Ś and in other non-terminal locations, and producers and buyers are simply taking advantage of that situation,â&#x20AC;? said grain commission spokesperson Remi Gosselin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buyers of Canadian grain have realized that producer cars are another conveyance option for producers,â&#x20AC;? he said. The increased interest in producer cars stems from logistical constraints hampering grain movements through traditional channels, which has been slower than normal this

ANSPORTATION KING. WHAT NOW? Major elevator companies are said to be at least four to six weeks behind schedule in loading cars at country locations and executing sales programs. Price is another story. By some accounts, Asian importers are paying more this year for high quality milling wheat than they were a year ago, said Tait. Meanwhile, Canadian farmers are on the outside looking in, unable to find delivery opportunities or forced to take a significantly discounted price. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best thing we could do is bring back the Canadian Wheat Board or some parallel entity,â&#x20AC;? said Tait. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible that the government will (realize) that â&#x20AC;Ś we do need some co-ordination in grain movement and will create a federal authority to do so, in the interests of the nation and in the interests of the agriculture industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unless we have some sort of coordination with some type of lawful authority behind it, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see much room for improvement in years.â&#x20AC;? Across the border in Alberta, Irmaarea grain farmer Kent Erickson is in a better position. Erickson, a well-spoken advocate of free market economics, contracted much of his 2013 crop before it was harvested. As of last week, 75 to 80 percent of Ericksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013-14 production had been delivered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year, we were pretty fortunate in that a lot of our grain went right off the combine,â&#x20AC;? said Erickson, who holds a degree in economics and counts marketing as one of his managerial strengths. Erickson conceded that there are many factors behind the problems

encountered this year. Insufficient rail capacity is one factor but not the only one. He said every piece in the supply chain, including producers, grain companies and railways, is learning how the system works and how to cope with the new challenges in addressing the new marketing environment. Diversified production is a good strategy to reduce risk at the farm level, he added. Ericksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rotation included spring wheat, winter wheat, canola, oats, malting barley, flax and peas last year. Anything growers can do to reduce their dependence on rail capacity and export markets is beneficial. Growers in Ericksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s area also have access to reliable local markets, including a large livestock feed buyer in Irma and a nearby oat processor at Camrose. The area is also served by line companies with facilities on both CN and CP tracks, a rare thing in Western Canada. Growers in other areas are not so fortunate. Er ickson acknowledged that improving market access and supply chain logistics is vital to all farmers, regardless of their individual situations. He said all farmers will feel the impact if Western Canada carries forward 10 million tonnes of wheat and has an average crop this fall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any way you look at it, the rail companies need to increase efficiency and we need to find ways to make them want to move grain,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got more oil moving by rail, more potash and more lumber.â&#x20AC;Ś We need to be putting what needs to be in a pipeline, in a pipeline.â&#x20AC;?

year, particularly for smaller volume crops such as oats, barley and flax. As a result, much of that business has been taken up by grain producers and short-line rail companies seeking new grain marketing opportunities. A further incentive is the huge spread between grain prices offered by Canadian line companies and those offered by North American end users, many of whom are struggling to obtain Canadian grain. Despite a big increase in producer car use, prairie oat growers are still shut out of lucrative U.S. milling markets because the transportation system is not offering adequate capacity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the different challenges that we have, compared to say other crops in Western Canada is that 90 percent of our exports go to the U.S.,â&#x20AC;? said Shawna Mathieson, executive director of the Prairie Oat Growers Association (POGA). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re being told by almost every miller that we have in the U.S. that they are empty.â&#x20AC;? Mathieson said U.S. millers, which are already running at reduced capacity, are beginning to import oats from northern Europe, now a more reliable source than deliveries from Canadian destinations less than 1,000 kilometres away. Meanwhile, freight costs for a single grain hopper car out of Northgate,

North Dakota, near the Canada-U.S. border are $1,600 higher this year than they were 12 months ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going into the U.S., weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re told that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even a bigger delay in getting those (hopper) cars back, so railways just simply donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do it,â&#x20AC;? Mathieson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a real concern for us, and if we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it fixed, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason why (U.S. millers) wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try to secure their oats from other countries for the long-term because they need a constant supplyâ&#x20AC;Ś. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make Cheerios from barley.â&#x20AC;? Many Saskatchewan shippers who have requested producer cars have been waiting for weeks for them to be spotted. The number of hopper cars spotted at Torch River Rail, a short-line rail company based at Choiceland, Sask., is well below the number that it ordered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably two months behind â&#x20AC;Ś 300 cars probably,â&#x20AC;? said railway chair Ron Shymanski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;About 80 or 90 percent of what we normally move is oats, but this year everythingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behind. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got wheat cars ready to go, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got barley ready to go, some peas. Everythingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behind.â&#x20AC;? Growers in the Choiceland area normally depend on U.S. millers to buy significant quantities of oats.

But this year, those buyers are looking elsewhere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quaker has cut off their bids,â&#x20AC;? said Shymanski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not bidding on oats because of the transportation problems.â&#x20AC;? Shymanski said U.S. prices for milling oats are the highest in years, with cash bids nearing $5 a bushel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The nearby months are a tremendous price, but you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get anything there,â&#x20AC;? Shymanski said. Meanwhile, concerns over transportation constraints and the resulting market damage are growing louder. Earlier this month, the government of Japan announced it would start buying more American wheat over Canadian wheat. Japanese officials said rail backlogs have resulted in late deliveries of Canadian wheat two months in a row, leaving Japanese mills short on grain.

Culinary class spreads word about canola Culinary arts | Future chefs cook gourmet meals with a homegrown ingredient BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

BRANDON — Making and eating gourmet food in a gorgeous setting is a good way to make somebody feel good about canola and canola growers. That’s part of the thinking behind the Manitoba Canola Growers Association’s sponsorship of the culinary arts program at Assiniboine Community College, which provides the school with a demonstration kitchen and lecture theatre. It also provides a setting for the association to reach out to professional cooks of the future, people who are interested in food and peo-


ple who don’t know much about where things like canola come from. “It’s been a wonderful venue, and I think the school is pretty proud of it,” said Ellen Pruden, the canola grower association’s education and promotion manager, after leading a group of foodies, cooks, farmers, food writers and journalists through an evening at the school’s Grey Owl restaurant. “We bring people together to talk about food and farm,” she said. “People really connect and relate, and people change. It goes to their heart, and food is really about heart and soul.” It’s difficult to make a reservation at the Grey Owl restaurant, which is in the oak-panelled interior of Brandon’s former hospital overlooking the Assiniboine River Valley. Students in the culinary arts program prepare and serve some of the most complex food found in Manitoba. Pruden said supporting the culinary school has been a good way for the association to promote the cooking and nutritional values of canola oil and to connect small groups of people to farmers and agriculture. “We just want to connect people around farm and food,” she said.

Life is calm chaos with farm, off-farm business, family Organizational skills vital | Multi-family operation stays on track with diligent bookkeeping, scheduling and family chores BY KAREN MORRISON SASKATOON NEWSROOM

BLADWORTH, Sask. — Halle Herback had to live in Davidson, Sask., while a sprawling two-storey dream

home was built on her central Saskatchewan farm. “It’s noisy in town. It’s quiet here,” the nine-year-old said of her family’s Palmer Charolais operation and grain farm.

Now back on the farm, Halle likes to jump on straw bales, gaze at the cows and feed the never ending supply of cats, while her brother, Hunter, 11, enjoys helping at harvest and playing on the growing piles of snow. They, with younger siblings Hayla and Hinton and parents Velon and Leah, operate a multi-family farm, growing peas, lentils, barley, wheat and canola on 9,500 acres. They started calving 300 cows last month, half of which are purebred, and keep track of the birthing progress with video monitors. “It gives you a different income at a different time of year,” Velon said about winter calving. The family chose Charolais for their meat production. “Every breed has its own purpose. Bulls are known for their performance in the feedlot.” Velon farms with his two uncles, three cousins and hired help. “Five of us buying keeps grain equipment updated,” said Velon. He credits his aunt and uncle, Bob and Monette Palmer, with helping him get started. Velon’s mother was a

Palmer so he spent his summers here while growing up around Regina. “Without the help, there’s no way I would have got started,” he said. His grandmother gave him a pig as a boy, which he sold to buy a cow and sold again to buy two cows. “Then I bought purebreds at age 12 and it snowballed from there,” Velon said. “As long as I can remember, I was always here.” He moved here 20 years ago and met Leah, who grew up nearby as one of five sisters on a grain farm. All families pitch in during busy times, with each person responsible for specific roles: spraying, topping up tanks of chemicals, operating air seeders and combines and getting trucks to the field. Even the youngsters have jobs to do. Velon said Halle has filled 300 syringes for processing cattle and Hunter has spent 150 hours driving the combine. “Most of our family time is when we are working,” said Velon. Halle prefers inside tasks to the outside work that Hunter enjoys alongside his father. “I like feeding the bulls, feeding the new babies, processing cattle, sorting cows, chasing them up in the chute,” Hunter said. Leah said the wives create cooking schedules to ensure everyone is fed at seeding and harvest. She has an accounting business in Davidson, so spends days off planning family meals. “I spend my weekends cooking for the guys so there’s food for the guys when I’m not home,” she said. Leah keeps everyone organized with a colour coded calendar in the pantry that lists activities from hockey to dance to piano lessons. “I have to write everything down or something gets missed,” said Leah.

A full schedule leaves little time for breaks from the farm. “We didn’t even take a honeymoon,” said Velon. He credits Leah’s organizational skills with balancing farm, work and family life. “My wife’s a neat freak,” he said of their immaculate home. Leah said her mother in Davidson watches children after school when needed and Halle helps with household chores. Velon said their workload goes “right from calving to bull sale to seeding, haying and harvest.” Palmer Charolais and the Nielson Land and Cattle Company of Craik, Sask., host the annual Charolais, Black and Red Angus bull sale, slated this year for March 3. They chose to organize a bull sale in a heated shed with video monitors to provide one stop shopping for buyers and delivery of bulls later in the year. “A lot of people don’t want bulls in March,” Velon said. “We provide free wintering and delivery.” Leah sells hail and livestock insurance during the sale, which receives sponsorships and includes a meal. “Before, guys would be coming over a couple of months. We’d lose half a day at a time. This way, it’s all at once,” said Leah. Velon said good cattle prices this year because of an abundance of cheap feed grain mean it’s a good time to fatten cattle. Early calving means bigger rewards for the Herbacks. “Bigger calves are worth more in the fall,” he said. “To get that extra bit of dollar, it takes work.” The couple agreed that Velon’s welding skills combined with Leah’s job and expertise in bookkeeping, interest rates, terms of loans and debt equity ratios are assets in their business. “If I wasn’t working, we wouldn’t have built a new house,” said Leah. Both the farm and her accounting business are incorporated, with farm income reinvested into the farm business. It’s a busy life, but Velon likes the cattle business and cattle people and has no regrets about his career choice. “I never even thought twice about it,” he said.


Enjoy desserts such as peach crisp and creamy rice pudding and try adding quinoa to pumpkin cookies for a boost of protein. | JODIE MIROSOVSKY PHOTO HEART MONTH | EASY COMFORT FOOD

Healthy eating makes healthy heart TEAM RESOURCES



ake time in February, heart month, to create healthy behaviours to boost your heart’s well-

being. Start taking a probiotic each morning on an empty stomach, one with at least two billion cells per capsule. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism shows this supplement boosts the levels of vitamin D, along with enhancing the digestive health and

boosting immunity. Greek yogurt is a great way to boost probiotics in the system. Avoid those with artificial sweeteners. In addition to probiotics, increase vitamin D in the diet by eating food sources such as milk, fortified orange juice, salmon and eggs. Puffed quinoa is a delicious whole seed that is comparable to rice but contains essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. Available in most grocery stores, it increases protein intake. Substitute it for some of the puffed wheat or rice in cakes or use in crunchy toppings for desserts or on top of yogurt. It’s excellent in cookies that call for puffed rice cereal such as crackerjack cookies. I throw about 1/4 to 1/2 cup (60 to 125 mL) into my family favourite cookie batters. If trying to incorporate the whole

dry quinoa seeds, use the same cooking method as for rice, being sure to rinse well before cooking. Source: Try a less common fruit such as the antioxidant rich pomegranate. Cut the fruit in half and dig out the little seeds, or look for frozen seeds in the freezer department and sprinkle on Greek yogurt, a salad or a smoothie. Make kindness a daily habit. Researchers at the University of British Columbia report that doing something kind for another person can boost health by reducing anxiety. Change negatives to positives with a smile, a hello to a stranger or pay it forward at the coffee shop. Spreading positive energy is often contagious. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

attended a funeral. Very Catholic. Lots of talk of God and resurrection. I have a bit of a problem with that last one. The mechanics of it, I mean. It seems very mysterious, not to say, miraculous. Guess that’s the point.

But what if I had an eye in the middle of my forehead while alive? Would my newly minted, resurrected self still have that eye? I would hope not because Earth people have been mean to me, but I’m waiting for a guarantee. And if I were to make it through to the other side with a forehead eye, don’t try to tell me that Heaven people wouldn’t nudge one another every time I came into view and mutter, “Hey, here comes Cyclops. Guess we have to be extra nice now.” The other thing about eternal life that bothers me is the “eternal” part. You thought Thanksgiving with the in-laws was an eternity? Eternal is a very long time. Beyond very long. If there are lollipops and unicorns

at every turn, that must mean there is no place for Wall Street types who steal from the rich and the poor and the in-between and give to themselves. I’m guessing Wall Street types are frowned upon “up there” on the far side of the “pearly gates.” There is always room for one more, they say, even if their contrition arrives at the very last second, but cutting it that close seems awfully risky. Even riskier than junk bonds. Back to the funeral. There were more hymns than I remember there being as a kid. I was an altar boy, by the way, so I came upon my skepticism the hard way. The best hymn at this particular funeral, without question, was Ave Maria. This can’t pos-

sibly be surprising because J.S. Bach wrote the music and the words are Latin. Throwback and Cyclops that I am, I remember a time when the entire mass was Latin. That time could be referred to as the good old days. Why? Because Latin is sexy and mysterious (that word again). English is the language I use when I tell the cat to “stop clawing the couch” or the McDonald’s drive-thru guy that “I’d like a Big Mac with medium fries.” I don’t think God should be addressed in English.

I am a 58-year-old diabetic woman. I get a lot of bladder infections, as many as three or four times a year. Is there any advice you can give me to try to prevent this from happening or at least to reduce the frequency of my attacks? I was told to drink cranberry juice but this does not seem to help.


Diabetics are more likely to get infections of all types, particularly if their blood glucose levels are not under control. I expect that at your age, you are menopausal, so the whole area is probably lacking in lubrication and is on the dry side. This makes urinary tract, bladder and kidney infections easier to catch. Use of vaginal creams or rings that contain estrogen may help improve this situation. Some doctors also suggest that a person with recurring infections could control them by taking antibiotics at the first sign of trouble. This would also shorten the course of the illness. Some have also recommended taking antibiotics continuously as a preventive measure or using them immediately after intercourse. Urinating and washing after intercourse are also advised. There are conflicting opinions whether cranberry juice helps either cure or prevent urinary tract infections. Several studies have shown that there is no significant difference in prevention between antibiotics and taking cranberry products in men or women, although the latter may be more helpful for children. The compounds contained in cranberry modify the surface properties of the bacteria to make them less likely to stick to the lining of the bladder. Cranberry products include juice, capsules and powders. They were found to be more effective if taken morning and night because the effect wears off in a few hours. Be careful which products you buy because some have been found to contain little actual cranberry. Diabetics also need to be aware that cranberry juice, even with “no extra added” contains a lot of sugar. The capsules might be a better choice.

named for a river in England, escorted the Allied ships and freighters that carried much needed supplies along the Norwegian coastline to Murmansk, a Russian seaport. Movement by land wasn’t possible because of the German occupation in Europe. “It was a dangerous place because the Germans were based in Norway and had ports along the sea,” said Mortenson, who was 18 when he signed up with the volunteer reserves. Russia recently honoured Mortenson with a medal for his war service at Government House in Regina. He trained in Regina and Esquimalt, B.C., before a weeklong train ride took him to Sidney, N.S., to board a ship bound for Scotland for his first ever trip overseas. The men slept in hammocks, 30 to a room. Ward said he and other prairie men volunteered for war service partly because they got to choose where they served. The conscripted ones often went into the army.


For the



His wife, Shirley, said men also enlisted seeking adventure. “More of the prairie boys chose the Navy because they had enough dirt in their lives,” she said. Mortenson recalled one fire fight where German dive-bombers were attacking his ship. “Our gunners shot down the plane and we picked up the five survivors,” he said, noting the POWs remained on the ship for a couple of weeks until they got to port. “We had to guard them all the time.” Mortenson continued to make his mark following the war. He used a federal government program for returning veterans to start a mixed farm, married Shirley, who he began dating in his teens, and raised four children. Producing hog, cattle and sheep quickly cultivated an interest in breeding and showing. Mortenson said high placements brought high prices. His awards include premier breeder Suffolk in 2011, and reserve grand champion and grand champion lamb carcass in 1995 from Canadian Western Agribition in Regina. Now 91 and living in seniors housing in Strasbourg, Mortenson continues to enjoy trips to Agribition, where he was among the show’s founders and served as a volunteer for more than 40 years. Mortenson operated a ram test sta-

tion on his farm, which served as a source of young breeding rams for the sheep industry for both commercial and purebred herds. “It was a service to other breeders.” He said the station took in young lambs and kept track of their feed, weights and rate of gain. Mortenson ventured into the show ring after travelling to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto as a helper. “My animals looked just as good as any down there,” he said. He shipped his stock first by train, which was a three-day trek, and later by truck. He first showed hogs and later sheep, with funding provided by the Saskatchewan government. He also served as president of the Saskatchewan and Canadian swine breeders associations. Mortenson’s son, Don, who now oversees the picturesque farm near Last Mountain Lake in the GovanDuval district, said his father participated because he had help. “He was able to go because he had people at home plus a hired man for 40 years,” he said. Don called sheep “dumb,” noting mothers often need help finding their own young. “But it’s always better to get run over by a sheep than a cow,” he said. Ward’s daughter, Lois Trowell, and her husband, Larry, maintain his flock and the “Ward” tattoo at Saltcoats, Sask. Carolyn Sorenson, a longtime neighbour, called Mortenson her second father, noting how the two farms helped each other with farm chores, hay hauling and cattle sorting. She remembers a photo of Ward receiving a lifetime achievement award from Saskatchewan Sheep Breeders wearing a halo brace after he broke his neck in a fall. “This photo speaks volumes about Ward’s character,” Sorenson said. “He never let anything get in the way of what he was passionate about.”

Simulation shows Oldman water levels are unlikely to rise Land use challenges | Studies of the Alberta watershed show that rising population and industry use will affect water quantity and quality BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

FORT MACLEOD, Alta. — Societal attitudes toward water have always had a direct effect on the health of Alberta watersheds. Brad Stelfox, a landscape ecologist with ALCES Landscape and Land Use, drove that point home Feb. 11 in his presentation to the Oldman Watershed Council conference. Stelfox and his company have developed a landscape simulator that shows the evolution of the province’s water quantity, quality, land use, cultivation and settlement. He predicted that water quality in the Oldman watershed may never regain levels seen 100 years ago. “Most of us treat (water) like it’s a free good, it’s infinite, we can never run out of it and no matter how often we turn on the tap, it kind of looks clear,” said Stelfox after his presentation. “So our actions reflect that attitude,

which is that we don’t care. We don’t pay anything for it. It’s almost free, right? But if we paid the true cost of water, which would be, say, double that of gas, people would probably treat it differently.” The Oldman watershed, in Alberta’s southwestern corner along the eastern slopes of the Rockies, is in good shape or bad shape, depending on perspective. “Relative to our great grandparents, it’s horrible. Relative to many other parts of Alberta, it’s good,” said Stelfox. “It’s all relative, right?” He and his company have com-

piled extensive data available in the public domain that documents forestry activity, pipelines, road networks, irrigation, wildlife populations, pasture and farmland. The result is what appears to be a comprehensive database of past provincial development that also extrapolates future results based on the desired data. “It’s primarily wall to wall coverage for the province, and then what we’ve done is worked hard to figure out how to clean it up and present it in a way that it can be looked at,” Stelfox said. “As landscape planners, we need to know where we are. If we’re wise, we

need to know how we got to where we are, and have to have some vision for where we want to be in 10, 20, 40 or 50 years.” The Oldman watershed has a population of 192,000 people in a 23,000 sq. kilometre area, and if the same growth pattern continues, it will have 622,000 people by 2060, said Stelfox. It has at least 50,000 km of highways, roads and trails. Multiple activities in the region, including ranching, farming, forestry and oil and gas exploration, all affect water quality and all have benefits and liabilities, said Stelfox. The challenge is to decide on future

directions and then maximize benefits and minimize liabilities. “It isn’t a win-win situation. You can’t have land use only create benefits without challenges. It just isn’t that way.” And whatever the land use, it affects the water. “People think that water quality is something that requires us to go down to a stream or river. And if we do that, I think immediately we limit our ability to understand what’s going on in the landscape,” he said. “The rivers and streams are nothing but a reflection of the watersheds through which they travel.”


Legacy fund put to good use BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

FORT MACLEOD, Alta. — Money from the Oldman Watershed Council’s legacy fund continues to help southern Alberta producers with their water protection projects. Two testimonials at the OWC’s annual Holding the Reins conference Feb. 11 described off-site watering and fencing projects, both designed to protect riparian areas in southwestern Alberta. Judy and Einar Nelson, who ranch near the Oldman River headwaters north of Lundbreck, Alta., are members of the Bob Creek Watershed Group formed 10 years ago. The group has used OWC funding and expertise to install remote watering sites that keep cattle out of the river, which contributes to less erosion and higher water quality. The region at the base of the mountains has many springs, several of which have been cribbed to provide stock watering using solar pumps. Einar Nelson said there are now 16 remote watering sites that use large recycled tires as troughs. He said cattle prefer to drink from the troughs rather than the river, and deer use them as well. Bears have also been seen bathing in them, he added. Dave Layton, who has a 350-ewe sheep operation near Glenwood, Alta., used OWC legacy funding to erect electric fences along the river near his third-generation farm. The fences prevented his sheep from eating young trees and kept grizzly bears from eating lambs. “They are a nice light snack for a grizzly bear,” Layton said. One bear, thought to be at least partially responsible for the loss of 50 lambs two years ago, was captured and relocated. Funds from OWC and the Waterton Biosphere Reserve were used to install an electric fence that has successfully deterred other predators.

McDonald’s making plans to modify supply chain Sustainable beef | How the fast food chain’s sustainability initiative will affect producers remains unclear BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The McDonald’s fast food chain plans to offer sustainable beef burgers by 2016, but it’s not clear to suppliers what that means. Bob Langert, vice-president of corporate sustainability, said it is a difficult concept to define, but he insisted it will be good business for McDonald’s as well as beef producers. “We really feel with sustainability

we can grow our business. By growing our business, we are going to grow your business,” he told the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association convention in Nashville Feb. 3. “We are trying to drive our business forward and sell more beef. We are convinced this type of work will bring more customers into the door, more often.” He said McDonald’s wants to develop a supply chain that is profitable and yields high quality, safe food without interruption. “It should be like quality and safety,

a part of doing business,” Langert said. To support that concept, McDonald’s has joined the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef, which com-

prises producer associations, environmental groups, retailers and pharmaceutical companies. The round table formed a committee last year with representatives from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, the European Union and the United States to develop a definition for sustainable beef. According to the group’s website, the definition needs to include workers’ rights, community well-being, animal welfare, food safety, nutrition, and food security and protection of air, soil and water quality.

Energy conservation and waste reduction must also be considered. Langert said ranchers are probably already working sustainably but need to prove it, just as McDonald’s is attempting to do. Langert said consumers put few demands on fast food outlets until the late 1980s but have since helped drive changes toward more corporate responsibility. McDonald’s was among the first to introduce animal welfare audits in 1999. The fish filet sandwich in the United States has carried the logo of the Certified Sustainable Seafood program since 1999 and McDonald’s coffee comes from members of the Rainforest Alliance. Langert gives the company a failing grade when it comes to educating its consumers about where its food comes from and what the company has done for the public good. “The average customer at McDonald’s does not believe our beef is 100 percent beef,” he said. “No matter what we do, we have not conquered that myth.” He said customers ask what 100 percent beef actually means and want to know about added growth hormones or whether the cattle were corn or grass fed. More commercials and posts on social media are showing where McDonald’s get its beef, pork, poultry, eggs and potatoes, but Langert said it needs to do more. “We need to be more transparent about where our food comes from,” he said. The Big Mac has earned the company $4 billion since it was introduced, but customer demand has helped change the menu in the last decade. Meals now contain less salt, and more chicken, dairy, fruit, salads and oatmeal are offered. Langert did not answer when asked if customers would pay more for sustainable beef Kevin Good, a market analyst with Cattlefax, said some consumers will pay more for products that were produced a certain way. “There are targeted market segments that will buy organic because that is what they want to do, but (for many) consumers, it boils down to price,” Good said. Outside influences sometimes force new ways of doing things on the ranch. “There are other forces in the world that are going to initiate some changes in our industry. There will be costs but there will be benefits too,” Good said. “Which ever of those systems is the most profitable at the time, that is likely where we will go. Right now, the conventional product is the most viable.”

MORE ON MCDONALD’S • McDonald’s buys two percent of the world’s beef supply. • It operates restaurants in 120 countries with the newest outlets opening in Vietnam this month. • There are 34,000 restaurants worldwide. • Seventy million customers are served every day.





GM corn trait banned by China already sold out: Syngenta CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — Syngenta, under pressure from U.S. grain exporters to suspend sales of a new genetically modified corn trait that is not approved in China, says it has sold out of the product. Demand for the Agrisure Duracade trait has been strong because it is engineered to control rootworm, said chief operating officer Davor Pisk. Syngenta’s announcement has shifted the focus of the debate back to grain merchants, who must decide whether they will buy grain produced using the trait. Syngenta has faced calls from top U.S. grain groups to halt the commercialization of Duracade and another genetically modified corn trait, Agrisure Viptera, until China approves them for import. The National Grain and Feed Association and the North American Export Grain Association asked Syngenta last month to suspend commercial use of the traits following the rejection of multiple cargoes of U.S. corn by Chinese authorities since November. The rejected cargoes contained the Viptera trait, known as MIR 162.

The planting of Duracade this spring threatens new disruptions, as well as millions of dollars in potential losses for global grain traders, if the strain is mixed into the mainstream supply chain and prompts another round of rejections from China, as some analysts fear. Syngenta has declined to suspend sales of either product. Pisk said the company has not seen any negative impact on Duracade orders in North America since the grain groups warned it could further hurt trade. “We’ve got very strong orders, particularly for our Duracade product, which is coming to market for the first time,” he said.

“We’re sold out for that product.” Syngenta applied for Chinese import approval of the trait in March after U.S. authorities cleared it in February. In theory, China’s agriculture ministry has 270 days to make a decision, but industry sources say it can take as long as two years after a strain is approved by the United States. Syngenta is also waiting for the European Union to approve Duracade for import. The company won import approval from Mexico and South Korea in September and from Japan in August. It also has import approval from Australia, New Zealand and Taiwan. Viptera received U.S. approval in 2010 and has been awaiting approval

from China for more than two years. The EU approved Viptera for import in 2012. “It doesn’t actually achieve anything to suspend Viptera sales, given that we’ve got a history now of many years of sales in the U.S., and of course a number of years of successful shipments to China,” Pisk said. Foreign approvals are important because the United States is expected to export 1.45 billion bushels of corn in the marketing year that ends Aug. 31, accounting for 10 percent of the last harvest. Syngenta has been discussing the launch of Duracade with the National Corn Growers Association to “try to find a way to introduce this into the

commercial stream that does not provide a tremendous amount of risk,” said Nathan Fields, the association’s director of biotechnology and economic analysis. An NGFA committee that deals with trade policy and biotechnology recently met with Syngenta and other major seed technology company representatives to discuss how Syngenta was proceeding with Duracade. “There’s a way that you can do some sort of a soft launch or a limited launch,” Fields said. Participants also discussed different “levels of stewardship” from seed technology companies, including how much follow-up work with farmers they will commit to, Fields said.

Questions about the weather?



Here’s another good reason to always wash fruit and vegetables. Grape farmers looking for alternatives to pesticides are using black widow spiders to control nuisance pests in their crops. The venomous arachnids sometimes manage to hitch a ride all the way to your local grocery store’s produce department and then home with unlucky purchasers. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency receives five or six reports of this happening every year. Black w idows pack a ser ious punch, but they are not known to be overly aggressive and their bites are rarely fatal to humans. However, a bite may put a person in the hospital for a few days. The elderly, children a n d t h o s e w i t h c o m p ro m i s e d immune systems are most at risk. Female black widows are encountered more often than males because the females kill the males after mating. They are about an inch and a half wide, legs and all, and are easily identified by a red or orange marking on their underbellies in the shape of an hourglass. The CFIA said people who encounter one can dispose of it any way they like — just don’t touch it.

Variable rates show no benefit Economic analysis | Study reveals conventional methods remain competitive

Data from Montana found no economic gains from using variable rate fertilizing methods over conventional. Dry conditions likely played a role in the results. | FILE PHOTO Some farmers are embracing the technology. Long said a farmer in Oregon has bought three $32,000 variable rate sensors for each of his combines to

allow him to adjust fertilizer applications later during seeding based on maps drawn from the data. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He claims he paid for the technology in one year because of what he

saved on fertilizer,â&#x20AC;? Long said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was able to identify in his field where he was over-applying fertilizer.â&#x20AC;? Long said adoption of advanced technology by farmers is limited, but

he will continue to do research in the hope that it encourages them to adopt at least parts of the technology. The industry and farmers need to see what is possible, he added.


CALGARY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Eleven years of crop data from Montana shows that variable rate fertilizer application didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay compared to conventional farming methods, says a U.S. Department of Agriculture researcher. Dan Long compared conventional nitrogen application and variable rate application in field scale trials at the University of Montana from 1993 to 2004. However, the information from those trials sat for years until a grad student analyzed the data. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The grad student summarized all the information to decide if there was any significant differences in profitability in placement of fertilizer. We found there was not a significant difference in the two,â&#x20AC;? Long told a recent precision agricultural conference in Calgary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It suggested, economically, a person could spread the fertilizer and use a conventional uniform approach and it would have been a benefit to variable rate.â&#x20AC;?

We found there was not a significant difference in the two. DAN LONG

Long said the poor response to variable rate applications of nitrogen could be attributed to dry conditions in Montanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s light brown soil zone, which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that different from soil in southern Alberta and Saskatchewan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough water for a substantial yield response leading to profitability that would have offset the cost of the hardware to pay for that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very marginal.â&#x20AC;? Long said the analysis didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take into account the federal subsidies that were paid to Montana farmers to buy variable rate equipment. The subsidies were part of a federal environmental plan to reduce unnecessary fertilizer applications. He said farmers are likely to see more benefits from the technology when they use it on their harvest and seeding equipment. Long said his research may have had different results in areas with higher rainfall where crops could more readily respond to the increased fertilizer.

Not all farmers embrace precision ag

Knowledge is key to unlocking higher yields, says agronomist

‘Wait and see’ | Growers are interested but want to see evidence of long-term benefits BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

CALGARY — Edgar Hammermeister doesn’t know how many farmers have fully embraced precision agricultural technology. “That’s a hard statistic to find. I would love to see one,” said Hammermeister, a producer from Alameda, Sask. He knows there is a high degree of adoption with autosteer, but he doesn’t know how many farmers are using variable rate technology to apply fertilizer, fungicides and

herbicides. “Farmers are dabbling, but the degree of adoption is fairly small,” said Hammermeister, who was at a recent precision agriculture conference in Calgary to stay current on the latest technology. “There are guys on the cusp, who are trying to get an understanding of the risks and rewards.” Many farmers want to make sure there is a return for the big financial investment and time involved in adopting the technology, especially when the some of their neighbours have made the investment and seen little return.

“There is quite a wait and see. The technology was a little oversold.” Hammermeister said he knows farmers are gathering data through yield monitors, satellite imagery and yield maps and trying to interpret the data to improve profitability. Craig Shaw of Lacombe, Alta., said precision farming is a critical part of his operation, and he wants to stay abreast of the latest developments and find ways to maximize the tools he is already using. Shaw said he is interested in using new remote sensing technology to find variations within fields.

He is watching new technology that allows farmers to join multiple sensors together so that they will meld information from a variety of sources and allow him to look for the clues in the data. Shaw believes the technology is valuable because it allows a more precise placement of seed and fertilizer by reducing overlap. “Using variable rate, we think we save dollars there, but those are not constant,” he said. “Over time we think we are making money. Technology is now allowing us to look at things in ways we didn’t before.”

Growers told to stay on top of new technology BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

CALGARY — Farmers are forgoing billions of dollars in lost yield by not embracing technology and the latest farming techniques, says a South Dakota State University agronomist. Gregg Carlson said technology is the key for farmers to remain competitive and enhance productivity. He blames lost yields on a lack of investment in agricultural education that would encourage farmers to adopt the latest technology. “I would argue a part of that problem is we are under-investing appreciably in the knowledge and understanding,” Carlson told a recent precision agricultural conference in Calgary. “That needs to be understood by our leadership, in agriculture and political.” A comparison of yield data from South Dakota State University’s crop testing program and national agricultural statistics of on-farm yields from 1970 to 2010 clearly show the lack of education on new technology. Corn yields in the crop-testing program were 185 bushels per acre while the on-farm average was 134 bu. Soybean yields at the university’s crop testing program were 20 bu. per acre more than on-farm yields. The yield loss of those two crops is worth $2 billion to the South Dakota economy. Carlson said the crops that farmers grow on their farms should out-yield crops grown in the university’s crop testing program because the university grows all kinds of varieties, even if they are poor yielders or bred for different soil conditions. “Farmers are selecting their own varieties. Why are they not out-performing the variety test?” Carlson said. He is even more concerned that the yield gap between the average farm yields and the university testing centre is increasing. “I believe the divergence is being caused by the lack of using top level management,” he said. “Our failure to embrace technology results in the grain yield gap.” Carlson said the gap started to widen when continuing education funding started to decrease. “Are we missing significant opportunity for economic development by disinvesting agronomic education?” He said auto steering is one of the simplest and most cost effective technologies to adopt because it has an almost instant payback in reduced chemical and fuel use. It’s then easy to add on other precision agricultural equipment to improve seed placement accuracy and variable rate fertilizer application. Precision agriculture also allows farmers to know the optimal seeding rate, depending on soil type. The top soils in the field can be seeded at the recommended seeding rate and the poorer soils at half the rate, which dramatically reduces seed costs without affecting yields.





Mustard, canola and sunflowers could benefit Bee vectoring | New technology uses bees to distribute control for plant disease BY JEFFREY CARTER FREELANCE WRITER

GUELPH, Ont. — A crop management technology developed at the University of Guelph has potential commercial applications in Western Canada. Pollinator expert Peter Kevan said mustard, canola and sunflowers are among the crops that could benefit from bee vectoring. “We are on the verge of commercialization, and in some crops we have started a commercial service here in Canada,” Kevan said. “Bee vectoring manages pollinators to distribute biological agents to suppress plant diseases. This is the neat part. You get the win of the pollination and you get the win of the protection.” Kevan described the approach in sunflowers as one example of how the system works. Bumblebee colonies are located in the field during the flowering period. The agents are contained in trays with tear-off foil seals, which are placed where the bees leave the colony. The powdered agents are delivered to the flower heads as the bees move from their specially designed housing. Ontario trials in 2011 and 2012 found abundant coverage up to 200 metres from the hives. Sclerotonia white mould and sunflower moths are the primary target

organisms in sunflowers, but other pathogens and pests are also controlled. Head rot was reduced by 70 to 100 percent, yield was improved by 20 to 28 percent and bushel weights were significantly increased. Kevan said the trials demonstrated a four-fold return over the cost of the bumblebee colonies and the inoculum powder. The labour involved in replacing trays of inoculum was a minor consideration. One colony of bumblebees was used for every three acres of sunflowers. Yield and quality gains were the result of disease and insect control and improved pollination, he added.

Modern sunflower cultivars are self-pollinating, but insect pollinators are still beneficial. Yields tend to be improved thanks to larger, heavier seeds with a higher germination rate. The trials were conducted in organically managed sunflowers. Kevan said there are opportunities for conventional growers if they manage their use of pesticides, which can harm bees. “Although there may be constraints on using insecticides on blooming sunflower fields, bee vectoring technology can nonetheless be compatible with insecticide treatments,” Kevan and pathologist John Sutton wrote in a recent paper. “For example, exit holds on the hives can be closed to prevent the bees foraging during insecticide application and for a period afterwards.” Kevan and Sutton have been developing bee vectoring since the 1980s.

Sutton said the history of bee vectoring can be traced back to 1880. “That’s when it was discovered that bees could carry disease organisms to flowering crops, in this case, fire blight to apple blossoms,” he said. “A century later, the question was asked, why not have the bees transport beneficials?” Clonostachys rosea, a common fungi found around the world, was one of the first biological agents to be tested. It’s effective against white mould in sunflowers, mustard and canola, grey mould in strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, mummy berry disease in blueberries and a previously unidentified disease that causes blueberries to drop prematurely. Clonostachys rosea is an endophyte, which lives out part of its life cycle in plants without causing harm to its host. It takes up residence in the flower and remains active until the

fruit is formed to provide protection to its host by overwhelming disease organisms that attempt to take up residence. Beauveria bassiana is already being used commercially as a biological insecticide in Ontario greenhouses to control a variety of insect pests in peppers and tomatoes. There have been trials that may be useful in controlling tarnished plant bugs in canola. Kevan and Sutton have also worked with Bacillus thuringiensis to control the cabbage looper. They said bee vectoring can be as effective as chemicals in controlling disease and insect pests. In addition, the development of resistance to biological agents is minimal. Chemical pesticides do work faster, so biological agents must be delivered early to be effective. They are not a curative measure and the bees may not fly if it’s too hot or wet, they said.





Farmers urged to encourage native pollinators Improving pollination | Natural areas provide habitat for pollinators and can boost neighbouring crop yields BY JEFFREY CARTER FREELANCE WRITER

GUELPH, Ont.â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Maintaining and expanding natural areas to attract wild pollinators can boost crop yields, said a speaker at the Guelph Organic Conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a general rule of thumb if you have 25 percent of your farm naturalized, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have enough native pollinators for all your cropping needs, but even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that much, every little bit helps,â&#x20AC;? said Susan Chan, manager of Farms at Workâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s native pollinator program in Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can improve a hedgerow thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already there by planting some extra native species and taking out things that are not helpful. Or that hedgerow could already be perfect. Above all, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rip it out.â&#x20AC;? Chanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yield benefit assertion is backed up with research. Yields for canola, soybeans, mustard and sunflowers are all improved with pollinators, even when c u l t i v a r s a re s e l f-p o l l i nat i n g , according to, which is sponsored by the University of Guelph, the Ontario agriculture ministry and Seeds of Diversity Canada. For example, sunflower yields can be increased from 20 to 40 percent. Quality gains are also possible. Chan said pollinators include the vast array of social and solitary bee species, butterflies, wasps, flies and many other winged and walking insects. Farmers may wish to improve their natural areas by adding pollinator species and eliminating nuisance species, such as common buckthorn. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially important to have something in bloom at all times, preferably three or more species at a

Pollinator stewardship can begin by maintaining fence rows and other areas of your farm property where there is a diversity of flowering plants. | JEFFREY CARTER PHOTO time. Native species and heritage varieties often have superior nectar and pollen resources. Planting individual species together will make access easier for the pollinators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the difference between shopping at a lot of individual boutiques and going to the mall where you can pick up everything at once,â&#x20AC;? Chan said. Certain crops can be managed to benefit pollinators. For instance, wait until 15 percent of the flowers are opened when harvesting hay instead of 10 percent. Gardeners could let some of their biannual species, such as parsley,

carrots and parsnips, flower in their second year. Flowering brassica species can also support pollinators.

Along with supplying a food source, wild areas also provide pollinator housing. Ground-nesting bees prefer lighter

soil with bare patches of earth showing through. Tree cavities, holes in wood, hollow twigs and canes and bundles of paper straws can also provide homes, depending on the species. Farmers who grow raspberries might consider collecting and piling their old canes rather than burning them, Chan said. Another option is to provide a dish or bucket of mud for the more than 100 mason bee species. They use it to build their homes in hollow reeds or holes in wood. The distance that bee species fly from their nesting sites varies widely. Domesticated honeybees will travel up to three or four kilometres, while bumblebees travel up to a kilometre and smaller species 100 to 500 metres. Janice Keil, a board member with the North American Native Plant Society, said the organization is a good resource for landowners interested in wild pollinators. As well, includes links to commercial growers and native plant organizations in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Other resources include and canpolin.

Program looks to reduce food dumped in waste bin Larger refrigerators one factor | Study hopes to increase awareness of food waste and change practice in food preparation BY JEFFREY CARTER FREELANCE WRITER

De Giovanni said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also found that people who are gardeners were less likely to waste food.â&#x20AC;? De Giovanni said her municipality is working with sustainable agricultural specialist Ralph Martin of the


University of Guelph on the project. Last year the researchers weighed the organic, recyclable and garbage streams of Guelphâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curb-side pickup program, and this year the research is expected to determine how

accurately households are dividing their waste among the three streams. Martin said studies have found that 50 percent of food is wasted after it reaches consumers. He said most information concerning the waste habits of consumers is aggregate in nature, but the Guelph project is designed to tease out the attitudes and practices of individuals. Last year, 270 Guelph households were chosen randomly to be part of the project, and 60 detailed household surveys were also completed. The organic stream was heaviest

with the recyclable stream close behind. The garbage stream was several kilograms lighter. The finding reflects Guelphâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation as a recycling community. Its landfill diversion rate was 67.72 percent in 2012, which was the best residential waste diversion rate in the province. De Giovanni said the study points to the need for greater consumer education. For instance, consumers who had larger refrigerators tended to waste more food, while those who compiled detailed grocery lists or who bought smaller amounts when they shopped wasted less. The study found a sense of guilt toward food waste, and many of those surveyed felt greater individual responsibility is needed to reduce it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope that with awareness, attitudes and practices will change,â&#x20AC;? De Giovanni said. The expiration of best before dates was among the reasons for why food was thrown out. Coyne said best before dates serve as a guideline for consumers, but they can be misleading. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Milk can go off before the date but it can also last a lot longer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same thing with many other foods.â&#x20AC;? Second Harvest provides an estimated 20,000 meals a day within the Greater Toronto Area, which is worth more than $35 million a year if $5 a meal were applied to each meal. Second Harvest rescues food at both the processing and retail levels. Seventy-five percent is perishable. The packaging may not meet specified weight, the food may be off-spec in some minor way or the amount of food that is delivered is more than demand. Coyne said the industry standard for overproduction is approximately seven percent, which is related to marketing. Grocery retailers like to keep their shelves full, she added. Coyne first recognized the scale of the problem when she joined Torontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Food Not Bombs movement and began dumpster diving 10 years ago. One of her first dives turned up â&#x20AC;&#x153;bin after bin of pristine butternut squashâ&#x20AC;? discarded after Thanksgiving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What you find is not rotting. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not disgusting. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unsalable. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthy and high quality but does not fit into the food system,â&#x20AC;? she said. Dumpster diving, along with antiwar protest, has been a tradition for Food Not Bombs since the movement began in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1980. It has since spread around the globe to hundreds of midsized and large cities. The movement has gained considerable public attention, but organizations such as Second Harvest are far more effective food distributors. Second Harvest now has nine refrigerated trucks and a refrigerated van along with volunteers collecting food. There is a central warehouse, but most of the food is picked up and immediately distributed. Donors include retailers, manufacturers, restaurants, the Toronto Food Terminal and the St. Lawrence Market. Food is delivered to 200 agencies including food banks, meal programs, community centres and shelters.





Info centres to help cope with extreme weather U.S. launches ‘climate hubs’ | The information centres are to help farmers cope with the consequences of climate change WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — U.S. president Barack Obama’s administration has announced the formation of seven “climate hubs,” which will help farmers and rural communities adapt to extreme weather conditions and other effects of climate change. The hubs will act as information centres and aim to help farmers and ranchers handle risks, including fires, pests, floods and droughts, which are exacerbated by global warming. Agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack said the country’s experience with

extreme weather patterns recently underscores the need for taking steps now to address the impact of climate change on agriculture and forestry. As an example of extreme weather, Vilsack cited a winter storm that struck South Dakota in October and killed thousands of cattle. “When you take a look at the intensity of the storms that we have seen recently, and the frequency of them, the length of drought, combined with these snowstorms and the subzero weather that we’ve experienced, the combination of all those factors con-

vinces me that the climate is changing,” he said. The hubs will be located in Ames, Iowa, Durham, New Hampshire, Raleigh, North Carolina, Fort Collins, Colorado, El Reno, Oklahoma, Corvallis, Oregon, and Las Cruces, New Mexico. Additional “sub hubs” will be set up in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico, Davis, California, and Houghton, Michigan. The hubs are an example of executive actions that Obama has promised to take to fight climate change. He has made the issue a top priority

for 2014 and has the authority to take many measures that address it without congressional approval. Environmentalists want big economies such as the United States and China to reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, which scientists blame for heating the planet. However, they have also urged policy makers to take action to help communities adapt to rising temperatures now. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said the effects of climate change have led to a longer crop growing season in

the Midwest, a fire season that is 60 days longer than it was three decades ag, and droughts that cost the United States $50 billion from 2011-13. The Obama administration is expected to announce new rules later this year that limit carbon emissions from existing U.S. power plants, which are a major polluter. The president is also under pressure from environmentalists to reject the Keystone XL pipeline, which would transport crude oil from Canadian oilsands in Alberta to refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast.


(Reuters) — Saputo Inc. is hungry for further acquisitions in Australia as well as in New Zealand, Brazil and the United States, says chief executive officer Lino Saputo Jr. The company, which is Canada’s largest dairy producer, recently won control of the Warrnambool Cheese and Butter Factory Co. in Australia. It gave no indication that further big purchases are imminent, but said the company had considered a play for Warrnambool for the past 10 years. “Now with Warrnambool, we have a strong, solid platform in Australia,” Saputo said. “Perhaps there could be other small, tuck-in businesses in Australia.” The company won majority control of Warrnambool in January, trumping separate approaches from WCB’s two largest shareholders: Australian-based Bega Cheese Ltd. and Murray Goulburn Co-operative Co. Ltd. The acquisition expands Saputo’s operations beyond Canada, the United States and Argentina and gives it a platform to tap growing Asian demand. Japanese beverage giant Kirin Holdings Co. Ltd., which owns a 10 percent stake in WCB through its local unit Lion, poses the last hurdle for Saputo to take full control of Warrnambool. Saputo said the company hoped to move beyond 90 percent control by Feb. 12, when its offer for the company was scheduled to close. If not, he added, Warrnambool would be a strong subsidiary of Saputo Inc. “Whether we have 100 percent or 90 percent or 80 percent, we’re still very delighted with this transaction (and) think as a subsidiary, this could be a very good platform for us,” Saputo said. He said the company wants to facilitate some of the plans Warrnambool has long had in place but lacked the finances to execute. He also offered a vote of confidence in Warrnambool CEO David Lord. “I have full confidence that David can manage that division very, very well,” Saputo said. “With our financial support and perhaps some sales guidance, I think the division can flourish.”

EU executive set to back new GM corn variety Insect-resistant crop | Despite opposition, new seed from DuPont and Dow Chemical will be approved in European Union BRUSSELS, Belgium (Reuters) — European Union ministers were deadlocked on whether to let a new strain of genetically modified corn be grown for human consumption. The deadlock cleared the way for the bloc’s executive arm to automatically approve the crop. European Commission endorsement of insect-resistant Pioneer 1507, developed jointly by DuPont and Dow Chemical, would end a decade-long debate and break Monsanto’s monopoly in Europe’s small market for GM crops.

GM crops are widely grown in North and South America and Asia but generally unpopular in Europe, where public opposition is strong and environmentalists have raised concerns about the impact on biodiversity. Ministers and diplomats from 19 of the 28 EU countries opposed approval, but under the bloc’s weighted voting system, that was not enough to reject the crop. Instead, the commission is now legally obliged to approve it, European health commissioner Tonio

Borg said. He could not specify when, but EU rules state the commission must decide “without undue delay.” He said extensive research had shown that the crop, whose developers first applied for authorization in 2001, was safe. DuPont Pioneer said in a statement that the EU had “a legal obligation to itself, to its farmers and scientists and to its trade partners” to support the approval of safe new agricultural products. EU authorities have approved only

two other GM crops for commercial cultivation: a corn type and a potato. The potato was later blocked by a court. France has vehemently opposed the new GM maize. Britain has backed it, arguing that Europe risked becoming “the museum of world farming.” Germany said last week it would abstain. France warned that the EU was in danger of stoking euro skepticism ahead of European Parliament elections in May by granting approval, based on arcane legal rules, in the

face of staunch opposition. “For us it’s an incomprehensible decision because the majority of EU member states do not want genetically modified (corn),” said Thierry Repentin, France’s Europe minister. Said Marco Contiero, Greenpeace’s EU agriculture policy director : “Approval by the commission would be irresponsible because of the environmental risk, untenable because of widespread political and public opposition and legally compromised because the commission has forced it through without the required consultation.” Spain supported the new corn variety, saying its farmers needed to be able to compete with those in non-EU nations that can grow GM produce, while Britain said there was a clear scientific case for GM crops. Borg said the commission would revive a separate proposal on GM cultivation that would allow individual member states to ban GM crops if they wished, while others could allow them. Member states have in the past failed to agree on that proposal, but Borg said he was “cautiously optimistic” countries could set aside their differences.

ALGIERS, Algeria (Reuters) — European and North African countries have called for greater co-ordination to head off future food crises across the Mediterranean region. North African countries, which must allocate huge budgets to pay for food imports, face the risk of social unrest should world prices rise or they become unable to meet demand from growing populations. France has for years been the main grain supplier to Algeria and Morocco, especially wheat. “There is a need for a partnership between Europe and the Mediterranean. Agricultural policies should be part of co-operation with Europe,” French agriculture minister Stephaney Le Foll said at a meeting in Algiers for agriculture ministers from the countries that belong to CIHEAM. Member states include France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Malta, Portugal, Turkey, Albania, Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia. The meeting followed a conference of Euro-Med countries in Algiers last November for talks over investment in the agriculture sector. “Some countries need help as their food security is threatened,” Algerian agriculture minister Abdel Ahab Nouri said. The ministers recommended the development of a regional information network, launched this January to promote co-operation and share experience on agricultural markets.




Expert lists bad welfare arguments BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Relying on boneheaded arguments when discussing animal welfare issues often creates public distrust, says an Ontario government hog specialist. “You have to have the public trust,” veterinarian Dr. Tim Blackwell told the Manitoba Swine Seminar Feb. 5. “You deserve to have the public trust, but we have slipped up a little bit over the years.” Blackwell listed more than a dozen counterproductive or ineffective arguments that farmers and others in agriculture use when responding to criticisms. Blackwell said some practices, such as gestation crates, need to be left behind, while others can be maintained for a while, such as castration. However, in all cases farmers need to talk to consumers in ways that don’t alienate them. Sometimes farmers believe that the public or activist groups are unreasonable or extremist, but Blackwell said most people just want to make sure that animals aren’t enduring unnecessary suffering. Farmers can’t defend delays in using open housing because equally productive alternatives to gestation crates exist. He said farmers can still defend piglet castration because no good alternative is available, but even then producers must explain that it’s a tem-

porary measure. They also need to make sure they don’t act like they think castration doesn’t hurt pigs because that will blow the farmer’s credibility . “The answer is, ‘we don’t like doing it.… We’re looking for alternatives. That’s a necessary discomfort that we would like to turn into an unnecessary discomfort (and do away with), like we’re doing with gestation crates, but we’re not there yet,” said Blackwell. “The experts … have been saying a lot of dumb things, and because you’re the real experts, these are things I hope you won’t say.” Blackwell said the following are bad arguments: • Farmers are the experts on animal welfare so the public shouldn’t tell them what to do. Blackwell said that approach does not create trust. • Gestation stalls and other extremely confining livestock housing are necessary to produce enough food for humanity. Blackwell said the world does not need to eat meat, and people know that. • Animals don’t have rights because they don’t know what rights are. Blackwell said many people have rights and don’t understand them or are incapable of understanding them. • I don’t believe in animal rights but I do believe in animal welfare. Blackwell said people have talked about animals having rights since the mid-

• •

19th century, so people already accept that animals have rights. Animal rights activists are all extremists. Blackwell said it is dangerous to write off critics who aren’t necessarily extreme. I believe in science-based animal welfare. Blackwell said welfare and rights have little to do with science. Examples of animal abuse are unrepresentative. Blackwell said everything in the news media is unrepresentative, such as car crashes and fires, but that doesn’t mean the issues aren’t real. Productivity equals happiness. Blackwell said humans can be forced to produce a lot without being treated well, so an animal that is productive is not proof that it is happy. There is nothing illegal in many controversial practices. Blackwell said that won’t convince the public that practices are OK. Urban residents want farm animals to be treated like pets or people. Blackwell said most of the public just wants to make sure animals do not face unnecessary suffering. Something controversial is OK because it is standard industry practice. Blackwell said standard doesn’t mean acceptable. The public just needs to be educated. Blackwell said the public isn’t going to accept everything it is told, and farmers need to accept that.

AN ATTRACTIVE OPTION. During the Second World War, the Canadian government introduced a war bond program that raised billions and funded a large portion of the war effort | BY DAN YATES, SASKATOON NEWSROOM


How war bonds started a new relationship with government

First World War-era propaganda posters for victory bonds promoted a program that encouraged saving and helped finance the war. | LIBRARY AND


he investment portfolio of today’s modern farmer likely consists of more than a simple Canada Savings Bond. But in the 1940s, when life expectancies were shorter, farm receipts and farm debt were smaller and RRSPs and national pensions were far in the future, the investments offered by the Canadian government to help finance the Second World War signalled a shift in Canadian consumerism.


Costs escalated as the country’s war effort ramped up, and by 1943, the Canadian budget was ballooning, even tripling year over year as war-related costs dwarfed every other sector. “I think a good case can be made that prior to the Second World War, most Canadians could reasonably be called poor and the war really does generate a lot of prosperity in this country,” said Graham Broad, a historian at King’s University College and co-editor of the Wartime Canada website.

To help cover the expenses, the National War Finance Committee introduced a “victory” war bond program early in the war. Canadians bought gold bonds on a fixed term, providing a loan to the government with returns up to 5.5 percent. Half of these bonds were ultimately sold to businesses. The program, which had previously been used during the First World War, eventually raised billions and funded a large portion of the war effort.

I think the whole war reorients the way Canadians thought about their relationship between themselves and their government. A much expanded government comes out of the war. Businesses in this country began to see that they could have fruitful co-operation with government — it didn’t have to be an adversarial relationship — and the war bonds are part of that. GRAHAM BROAD KING’S UNIVERSITY COLLEGE HISTORIAN

The war effort was also assisting the country’s economy as unemployment fell and inflation stayed low. “For the first time in memory, Canadians are putting away substantial amounts of money,” said Broad. “The bonds became perhaps one of the first examples of Canadians making substantial investments for the future.” Farmers also rebounded from the Great Depression. Export markets strengthened, but war-time restrictions and taxes limited consumer spending on big ticket items. Today, strong commodity prices and low interest rates are producing record farm receipts, machinery sales and debt loads in rural Canada, but the mood in the war years was different. Farm debt peaked in the late 1930s in Canada at $806 million, which is a small number, even when adjusted for inflation, when compared to the tens of billions in debt that Canadian farmers manage today. It would decrease during the war years. Farmers weren’t typically buying land, and machinery purchases were minimal. Broad said it was “boom times” for many growers, although they had less to spend it on. War bonds became an attractive option. The bonds were marketed to Canadians in urban and rural centres throughout the war. Newspaper ads and posters targeted Canadians’ emotions, playing on a sense of patriotic duty, with images of Canadian soldiers, or on their desires, with visions of post-war Canada. Others took a more fearful approach, such as First World War ad that threatened, “Canada’s grain can-

not be sold unless you buy victory bonds.” “People could both serve their country, but also be self-interested at the same time. They could both secure their own economic future and their country’s at the same time. There was no contradiction there, and the war bonds ads kind of make that explicit,” said Broad. “Especially late in the war, when they begin the talk about how soon all of the things you want to buy will be coming back: the cars, the stoves, the fridges. Rural electrification was going to be a big post-war project and that the bonds were ‘your ticket to being able to buy those things.’ ” The bonds offered a decent return for those who got in early, but the value of the investment diminished as inflation grew. Large numbers of people never cashed them in. “I think the whole war reorients the way Canadians thought about their relationship between themselves and their government. A much expanded government comes out of the war,” said Broad. “Businesses in this country began to see that they could have fruitful co-operation with government — it didn’t have to be an adversarial relationship — and the war bonds are part of that.” IN THE FEB. 27 ISSUE:

Organic systems yield lower than conventional crops regardless of weeds BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

VANCOUVER — Organic crops have more weeds than conventional crops, and organic crops yield less than conventional. As a result, many producers often assume that weeds cut into production, which might explain the yield gap between the two systems. However, Dilshan Benaragama, a University of Saskatchewan PhD candidate in plant science, said the assumption is false. “That’s a misconception. We think that when you have more weed density there’s going to be a big yield loss,” Benaragama said during the Weed Science Society of America’s annual

conference in Vancouver Feb. 4. “Organic systems have lower yields (even when there are) no weeds.” Benaragama, who participated in the graduate student oral presentation contest at the conference, conducted plot trials in 2011 and 2012 at Agriculture Canada’s research centre in Saskatoon to evaluate how weed competition and rotation influences the yield of organic and conventional crops. He said studies suggest that organic systems yield five to 30 percent less than conventional systems. Benaragama considered three crop rotations in his study: high diversity with annuals and perennials, low diversity with wheat-canola and a diverse annual system with cereals, canola and pulses.

He also layered four weed scenarios on top of those rotations: weed free (hand weed), no weed control, herbicides and seeding tame oats into plots to simulate a high level of weed pressure. He determined that diverse rotations do reduce weed pressure, but organic yields remained below conventional levels. “No matter what the rotation is, organic has low grain yield compared with conventional.” As well, he said organic yields were lower than conventional regardless of weed treatment. “Under weed free conditions, organic has lower yield. No matter (if ) weeds are present or not, still, organic systems are having (lower) yield,” he said in a later interview.

“What this says is that crop weed competition is not a limiting factor on these (organic) systems.” Benaragama said weeds do reduce crop yields in organic and conventional systems. In certain treatments within his experiment, he found that weed pressure hindered conventional crops more than organic, reducing yields by 57 percent in conventional and 41 percent in organic. He said the lower organic yields, whether weeds were controlled or not, suggest that other factors are responsible for the yield gap, possibly soil nutrients. “In our cropping system in Saskatchewan, soil fertility is the main problem.”

Steve Shirtliffe, a U of S plant science professor and Benaragama’s adviser, agreed that inadequate soil fertility often restricts organic yields. “You almost always see a yield penalty with organic rotations unless they’re really heavily manured … (but) in those situations they can yield even better.” John Heard, a Manitoba Agriculture soil fertility specialist, said University of Manitoba research indicates that phosphorus becomes depleted in organic systems, but importing manure restores the system and enriches yields. Benaragama said American organic farmers tend to add more inputs to their crops in the form of compost and manure.

Scientists have duty to educate public: researcher Science canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak for itself | Consumer ignorance sparks fear so experts need to speak up and dispel misinformation BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

VANCOUVER â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bob Nichols doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit the stereotype of a soft spoken, introspective and mild mannered academic. At the Weed Science Society of America annual meeting in Vancouver in early February, Nichols leapt out of his chair at the back of a conference room and marched to the front to make an impromptu and passionate speech, urging his fellow scientists to take a stance on issues such as biotechnology and pesticide regulations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not neutral here and should not be neutral in this,â&#x20AC;? said Nichols, senior director of agricultural research with Cotton Inc., a cotton research and promotional organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If something really is safe and can be used, then we need to let the people know that we can use it.â&#x20AC;? Nichols said the world needs transgenic crops, pesticides and new biotechnology such as RNA interference to boost food production. Academic societies cannot shy away from these controversial topics and the associated ugly politics because scientists have a duty to educate, he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t educate everyone up to the level of a PhD â&#x20AC;Ś but we can do a much better job of educating people about the basic science of biology. I think that needs to be a strategic objective of this society,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(But) academic communities have been somewhat reticent to bring forward basic elements of education for fear of actually interacting in what would be seen as political discourse.â&#x20AC;? Scientists at the Vancouver conference dedicated a morning session to legislation restricting pesticide use, with a focus on cosmetic pesticide bans in Canada. Manitobaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ban on lawn and garden pesticides for private and public property is scheduled to take effect next year, with a one year transition

Scientists and other academics should take a leading role in defending genetically modified crops and other technological advances that science deems safe, says an agricultural researcher. | FILE PHOTO period until the legislation is fully enforced. Five other provinces have already enacted similar bans, including Ontario, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Quebec. Lee Van Wychen, director of science policy for the weed science society, said the Canadian bans perplex him because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re based on questionable science. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to see the science speak for itself on whether a product â&#x20AC;Ś is safe for use,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I read the blogs and things out there on the internet, and we see these non-profit groups â&#x20AC;Ś (that) do occasionally misrepresent things with misinformation, fear and anecdote. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the science speak for itselfâ&#x20AC;Ś. I just think they hav e i t c o m p l e t e l y w ro n g a n d havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t listened to the facts.â&#x20AC;? Takoma Park, Maryland, is the only sizable jurisdiction to pass a cos-




metic pesticide ban comparable to restrictions in provinces such as Ontario, according to Beyond Pesticides, a lobby group.

Francois Tardif, a University of Guelph weed science professor, said expectations of personal freedom might explain the politics of pesti-

cides in the United States. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a bit more independent, as far as letting the government decide what (citizens) do in (their) house â&#x20AC;Ś or property.â&#x20AC;? Nichols said pesticide bans are an excellent example of why scientists must speak up. He said there is a significant chasm between the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s level of knowledge and the education required to comprehend modern science and technology. Scientists have a responsibility to bridge the knowledge gap, he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m suggesting is that they (scientists) participate in education.â&#x20AC;? He said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essential that ordinary citizens have sufficient knowledge of biology and other sciences to distinguish a legitimate health risk from a non-risk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We (donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t) want ignorance to become fear because of a lack of basic information.â&#x20AC;? Many scientists may instinctively shy away from politics, but Nichols said they create a vacuum when they withdraw from the political arena. Other voices will take advantage of the silence, he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to need in the next 50 years is the ability to use molecular biology for plant improvement,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot be neutral about this.â&#x20AC;?

Australian cattle eating into wheat exports Starved by drought | Long-term shortages could arise as producers cull cattle because of drought SINGAPORE/SYDNEY (Reuters) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Soaring demand for Australian wheat to feed cattle is diverting grain away from export markets. Embattled ranchers have been forced to send tens of thousands more animals than usual to feedlots to fatten them up before slaughter. A scorching drought that is withering pastures in Queensland state, which is home to half of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 28 million strong herd, is also forcing producers to transport cows huge distances because feedlots are full to bursting with underweight cows. Queensland has recorded less than half of the normal rainfall in the last three months, stunting grass in pastures in an area double the size of France and curbing grain production. Australia is the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secondbiggest wheat exporter, and extra feed consumption means Asian buyers, such as China, will have to buy more cargoes from other suppliers in North America or Europe. Wheat prices have already shot up in Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drought-hit areas, and the premium over global prices is three times the normal level. The tightening supply could also increase pressure on benchmark U.S. prices, which have risen on concerns of crop damage in the U.S. because of icy conditions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rain in the next few weeks, there will be a lot more cattle going to feedlots, assuming the feedlots can fit them in,â&#x20AC;? said Ross Fraser, co-owner of Frasers Livestock Transport, one of the biggest cattle transporters in Queensland.

Drought in Australia is forcing producers to ship more cattle to feedlots earlier, which is consuming larger than normal amounts of wheat. | BRENDEN ASHTON PHOTO/WWW.FLICKR.COM Feedlots use wheat and other grain such as sorghum. However, Australian sorghum production is forecast to fall more than one-third to 1.278 million tonnes this crop year, meaning extra wheat will be needed to fatten cattle. More than half of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feed yards are in Queensland, but with little room remaining, farmers are sending cattle as far away as 1,500 kilometres to Victoria state. Animals in Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remote cattle

country have to be driven across land in herds or transported using road trains, which can be more than 50 metres long and carry up to 130 head of cattle in multiple trailers. Typically, cows go to feedlots for 90

to 100 days to certify them as grainfed before culling, but animals are now being sent earlier and kept there longer because of the drought. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The priority of late is to send cows to feed yards because there simply is no

grass left on many properties to feed them,â&#x20AC;? said Simon Quilty, meat and cattle analyst at FCStone Australia. About 2.5 million tonnes of wheat are used in an average year for feed in Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 450 feedlots, which have a capacity to hold 1.1 million cows. Most of the herd relies on pasture. There were 787,487 cows in feedlots at the end of September, according to the latest data from the Australian Lot Feeders Association, but feedlots in Queensland were nearly 90 percent full even before drought worsened at the end of last year. Traders said grain is being diverted from exports to feed cattle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are already seeing exports go down from Queensland and New South Wales,â&#x20AC;? said a Sydney-based grains trader. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is directly resulting from lower production and higher consumption by the livestock industry due to the drought.â&#x20AC;? The trader estimated that exports from these two states would fall to 1.5 million tonnes this year from the normal 2.5 million tonnes. Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall wheat production is expected to top 27 million tonnes in 2013-14, the third highest on record, but this is mainly because of a big crop in Western Australia, while Queensland and northern New South Wales suffer from drought.

Food crisis looms in Central African Republic Muslims flee capital | Food stalls stand empty as terrified Muslim traders fear gun-wielding Christian militia BANGUI, Central African Republican (Reuters) — An exodus of Muslim traders fleeing attacks by Christian militia in Central Afr ican Republic has pushed food markets there to the brink of collapse, threatening the nation with even deeper crisis. The United Nations estimates that 1.3 million people, which is more than a quarter of the population, are already in need of urgent food aid after months of communal violence that French and African peacekeepers have been unable to stop. The poor, landlocked country descended into chaos after the mainly Muslim Seleka rebels seized power in March. Looting, rape and murder followed, bringing international pressure that saw Seleka leader Michel Djotodia resign last month. That in turn has been followed by Christian militia attacks on Muslims. Tens of thousands of terrified Muslims have fled the capital Bangui in recent months, many of them involved in trade with neighbouring countries that once kept the city of 800,000 supplied with staples such as sugar, flour, fuel and soap. Dozens of dusty stalls stand empty in the market of Petevo, and meat is scarce because the Muslim traders who control the trade in cattle from Chad deserted the city. Only small amounts of pork are available from pigs raised locally. “We are very worried because if these shortages last longer, there will be nothing left in the market and a lot more people will die of hunger,” said Nadege Kodo, a woman dressed in colourful traditional robes who was searching for supplies. The country is in dire need, with the United Nations reporting that nine out of 10 people are eating just once a day. Trucking routes from Cameroon have closed as machete- and gunwielding Christian militiamen prowl the countryside, slaughtering Muslims. Hundreds of trucks are stranded at the border because Muslims do most of the driving jobs. Oxfam and Action Contre la Faim say supplies of staples to Bangui come from 40 wholesalers who import provisions. Fewer than 10 of these wholesalers remain, and they threaten to leave soon if security does not improve. “There’s already a very serious food crisis in Central African Republic,” said Steve Cockburn, Oxfam’s regional campaigns manager. “The problem is that the situation is going to get much, much worse. Unless communities are better protected, more populations, more traders, more herders will leave the country and there’ll be a breakdown in supply in Bangui and beyond.” A spate of daylight attacks on Muslims, including one by uniformed members of the armed forces, has raised alarm on the dusty streets of the capital. A member of the transitional parliament was recently shot dead a day after calling for Christian militias to be disarmed. Medecins Sans Frontiers said it recently treated 100 patients for bullet and machete wounds at a sprawl-

ing camp beside Bangui airport, home to 100,000 homeless people. “People are coming in without noses, ears, nipples,” said Lindis Hurum, MSF’s departing project coordinator at the camp. “One guy came in holding his head to keep it from falling as he was cut with an axe on each side of the neck.” The International Criminal Court said it would open a preliminary enquiry into possible war crimes. The United Nations said more than 2,000 people have been killed and

275,000 RESIDENTS HAVE FLED THE COUNTRY more than 800,000 displaced, half of them in Bangui. More than 245,000 Central Africans and 30,000 citizens of other nations have already fled the country. With the planting season only a month

away and most farmers without access to seed, donors worry the food crisis will worsen. The cost of what little food remains in the capital has soared. The price of manioc, a staple, has risen by 20 percent since November, while beef has more than doubled in price as cattle farmers flee to the bush. “I have to travel 150 kilometres to find meat now,” Patrick Blossangar, head of the butchers association, said at the market in Bangui’s Combatant district. The price of cattle has more than

doubled, to about $1,600 a head from $600. The insecurity is also affecting humanitarian aid. The World Food Programme has 27 trucks carrying rice and corn flour stranded at the Cameroon border, with their drivers unwilling to proceed, said WFP’s Alexis Masciarelli. The UN agency now plans to airlift 90 tonnes of food per day from Cameroon over the next month, at five times the cost of trucking. “We have no other options,” Masciarelli said.

Trial shows Ontario able to deliver high quality quinoa Still in testing stage | Researchers haven’t studied the crop’s nutrient requirements but say quinoa is frost and drought tolerant BY MELANIE EPP FREELANCE WRITER

Quinoa has received a lot of attention in the past few years, probably because it is gluten-free and rich in antioxidants. Most quinoa served in Canada is produced in South America, but a project to develop commercial scale production and marketing in Ontario could change that. Quinoa is in high demand globally and supply can’t meet demand, which is why it sells at a premium. The costs and inconsistent quality of imported quinoa from South America, coupled with increased consumer demand for quality local food, have sparked interest in producing the ancient grain in Canada. A variety of groups, including Katan Kitchens, the Value Chain Management Centre and the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association, have joined forces to begin commercial-scale production of Ontariogrown quinoa. Preliminary results from test plots grown in southern and northern Ontario reveal that the quality of Ontario’s quinoa could be much higher than what is grown in South America. Jamie Draves, president of Katan Kitchens, has been the driving force behind the project. Draves switched his diet to “super foods,” including quinoa and grain amaranth, during a battle with idiopathic pancreatitis, a severe illness of the pancreas with no known cure. After regaining his health, he focused his attention on the possibil-

ity of producing the grains in Ontario. Draves began testing and developing quinoa and amaranth cultivars on a test plot in Campbellville, Ont., in 2011. “Our goal and focus is the highest quality quinoa in the world,” said Draves. “One of the varieties that we’re breeding has shown much higher protein levels than the red and white quinoa coming from South America, and higher in pretty much every mineral category, and substantially higher in iron, zinc and manganese.” The same variety was planted in southern and northern Ontario, but the results from northern Ontario were much higher. Researchers don’t know what’s influencing the results, but they’re working on it. “Right now, from the analyses we’ve done, and we need to do more, this is the highest quality quinoa — the northern Ontario variety that we’ve been acclimating — that we’ve seen yet,” he said. The project, which is set to last for 30 months, will identify best management practices for the consistent production of high quality quinoa. Draves asked for help evaluating the crop from Nick Betts, who is sustainable development co-ordinator with Grain Farmers of Ontario but works with Draves as a private agronomist. Betts said quinoa is an unimproved crop, which means no genetic selection or artificial modifications have been made to the seed. “There are no genetic commercial lines available,” he said. “It’s literally taken from the field and sold.”

Breeders zero in on quinoa chromosomes Jamie Draves has been testing amaranth, shown here, and quinoa varieties since 2011. Both are in demand for their antioxidant properties. | MELANIE EPP PHOTO The seeds planted in Ontario come mostly from South America, but some come from the west coast of North America. “The biggest problem is that there’s a shortage of seed globally for quinoa, for consumption as well as to plant,” Betts said. His next goal is to select for seeds that have consistent traits, including uniform height and seed heads. “For commercial production, it’s easiest to harvest when you don’t have to deal with that type of variability,” he said. The project has had its challenges, including weed control, harvesting and processing issues, and finding the right nutrient balance in the field. “There is no registered herbicide for quinoa, whether it’s organic or conventional,” Betts said. “And we don’t really know what the sweet spot is for how much nitrogen, how much phosphorus, how many


micronutrients are necessary to produce an optimal crop because we’ve only been doing this for three years.” However, the crop is frost and drought tolerant, which bodes well for producers on marginal and low grade land. “On a small scale, right now, it makes economic sense to produce q u i n o a b e c au s e o f t h e p r i c e s, because of where the markets are and the demand that’s out there,” he said. “If we can move ahead with some of these improvements and start the improvement process of quinoa, we’ll be increasing yields, we’ll be increasing efficiencies and producing more per acre at the same time. The economics are there.… If the agronomics continue to improve, the economics are going to continue to improve. It could be a very positive thing for farmers in Canada.”

Researchers from the University of Guelph and the Canadian Light Source in Saskatoon are using nanoscale imaging to look at quinoa chromosomes in fine detail. The ancient grain’s genetic makeup has been virtually unknown till now because its tiny chromosomes are easily damaged by staining. Researchers are using STXM, a technique that gives three-dimensional structure to information gathered at the nanometre scale, to gain a better understanding of quinoa chromosomes. The level of detail achieved is ground breaking, said CLS staff scientist Chithra Karunakaran. “You can focus the soft X-rays to about 30 nanometres … more than a thousand times smaller than a human hair.” Results of the study will help develop new quinoa varieties that are better adapted to the Canadian climate.

Atamanenko leaves ag committee for newer pastures Passionate about food security | Atamanenko promoted food self-sufficiency and the benefits of local food production BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

New Democrat Alex Atamanenko has decided to step aside after eight years on the House of Commons agriculture committee. The British Columbia MP announced last fall that he wouldn’t run in the next federal election. Consequently, it was time for fresh NDP faces on the ag committee, he said. “In 2015 I will be 70 years old, so that’s time to get out to pasture,” he said. “It’s been eight years and time to move on and do other things.” Randall Garrison, another B.C. MP, has assumed Atamanenko’s spot on the ag committee. Atamanenko has focused much of his energy on two agricultural issues since 2006: genetically modified food and Canadian food security. He introduced a private member’s bill requiring regulators to consider the potential harm to export markets when they evaluate new GM varieties, which was defeated in February 2011. However, Atamanenko said he was encouraged by the discussion around the proposed legislation. “I think the debate has just started,” he said at the time. Lucy Sharratt, Canadian Biotechnology Action Network co-ordinator, said Atamanenko and his bill shone a

light on GMO concerns. “It spurred a very important conversation about the contamination incident around GM flax and how that was relevant to the question of GM alfalfa,” she said. “The bill itself raised the question of the need to assess export market harm … and that question is still very relevant.” In the late 2000s, Atamanenko led a Food For Thought tour to engage Canadians on food sovereignty and food security. He led discussions at community forums across the country on the merits of a local, smaller scale food

production and distribution system rather than large scale, high input farming, “I still am very concerned about food sovereignty, the ability to control our food supply,” he said. “It’s more timely now, more than ever, as we see what’s happening in California with the drought…. Our imports may be limited…. As a country, we need to be as self-sufficient as possible.” Atamanenko wrote a report following the tour that highlighted the need to label food based on origin. It also said imported food should satisfy Canadian environmental and health

standards and governments should encourage local food production. He hopes the report and his other work will have an impact on NDP policies. “I’m trying to influence my party to adopt a good, solid policy on GMOs,” he said. “I believe I’ve been able to provide some advice on the whole area of food sovereignty and a national food policy. I know the party is working on that.” Atamanenko continues to push Bill C-571, which would prohibit the vast majority of Canadian horses from being sent to slaughter.

Although House of Commons committees can be political and divisive, Atamanenko said the ag committee was relatively congenial, particularly during the minority Parliaments of the 2000s. “In many of the committees, there was a lot of partisan stuff flying around…. We seemed to work more smoothly, more co-operatively. It was actually a more exciting time in a minority Parliament … to bring issues forward,” he said. “In spite of our obvious political differences … there were issues we all felt passionately about and agreed on.”

A young Alberta Shorthorn breeder made her first trip to the National Western Stock Show worthwhile when her yearling bull took the grand championship. Jordan Buba of Spruce Grove and her bull, BISS Element 79, had already won the Canadian national championship at Farmfair International in November. She decided to give the U.S. national show in Denver, Colorado, a try. After Farmfair, she sold interests in the bull to Miller-Wilson Angus of Bashaw, Alta., and Dixon Farms of Vermilion, Alta. After the triumph in Denver last month, she sold the American interest to breeders in Ohio. Buba, 26, started to get antsy as the bull began winning at the show. “It was pretty surreal as we won one class at a time, but the judge had some pretty positive comments in the first class,” she said. The roan bull was competing against an American favourite, which had won numerous shows throughout the United States. Buba works at Lewis Farms, a large Simmental operation, but keeps a small herd of Shorthorns for herself. She started showing commercial cattle as a youngster at junior events. She eventually added purebreds and hopes to continue her winning ways. “Hopefully I can raise a few that are as good as him,” she said.

European trade deal concerns sugar beet farmers Food labels | Grower group wants to protect Canadian label BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Alberta sugar beet growers object to parts of the proposed Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between Canada and the European Union because of fears it could erode their industry. The trade deal would label any sugar refined in Canada as Canadian

product and would eliminate existing tariffs on sugar between the two trading partners. However, Canada’s two refiners, Lantic and Redpath, often buy cane sugar from other countries and then process, refine and package it as Canadian sugar. “We are firmly of the belief that foreign sourced sugar disguised as Canadian is not beneficial to Alberta

and does nothing to stabilize rural development,” Alberta Sugar Beet Growers (ASBG) president Rob Boras said in his annual report to members. Canada produces eight to 10 percent of domestic sugar requirements, all by way of sugar beets. “Without a domestic policy on what levels of sugar needs to be Canadian grown and produced, there will continue to be an erosion of Canadian grown, harvested and refined sugar, and that doesn’t look to change in the foreseeable future.” Boras said the organization is uncomfortable objecting to CETA because the trade agreement is expected to benefit the beef, pork and grain sectors. CETA is still an agreement in principle and is not expected to be finalized until 2016 at the earliest. Errol Holkai, international trade consultant with the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, said CETA’s benefits to the sugar beet industry are not yet clear. “Can sugar beet producers take advantage of what the Canadian government negotiated with the European Union?” Holkai told the ASBG annual meeting by teleconference Feb. 12. “Well, I think there’s a lot of questions that need to be discussed about this possibility,” he said. ASBG is a CFA member. The agreement says that raw Canadian sugar exported to the EU must be “wholly produced from Canadian sugar beets, so any raw sugar going to the EU, in terms of tariff elimination, has to be from Canadian sugar beets,” said Holkai. In terms of refined sugar, he said the EU has agreed to increase the limit of allowable sugar that has not been grown, harvested or refined in Canada. That opens the door for Canadian refiners to buy sugar from other countries, process it and sell it as Canadian product. Holkai said tariffs will also be eliminated on sugar-containing products from Canada, though a tariff rate quota will apply. As well, virtually all Canadian sugar beets are genetically modified to be glyphosate resistant. The EU has approved the type of GM sugar beet grown in Alberta, but Holkai said European consumers’ reservations about GM products might reduce demand for Canadian sugar or sugar-containing products. Transportation is another hurdle, given that the EU is 14,500 kilometres away from Alberta. “Is it economically feasible to transport sugar this distance, or will transportation costs … eat up any advantage Canada may have had with the elimination of the European tariff?” Holkai said. However, costs per unit are lower in sugar-containing products, which could increase demand for Canadian sourced sugar. As for the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Holkai said the United States, also a member of the TPP, is unlikely to increase Canada’s 10,000 tonne sugar quota.


Alberta sugar beets expl Approaching commercialization | Production of glycol, used in liquid detergents and plastics, could help diversify sugar beet industry BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Producing glycol from Alberta sugar beets is a promising possibility, but growers plan more research before moving forward. Producers were told at the Alberta Sugar Beet Growers Association’s annual meeting Feb. 12 that work with Vancouver-based S2G BioChem showed beet sugars could be a costeffective feedstock for glycol, which is used in liquid detergents, antifreeze and plastic bottles. “The volume of testing with the thick juice that we would provide, we felt that’s not enough to move forward confidently to commercialization, to build a plant,” said association president Rob Boras. “We’re confident that it will work. It’s going to take some tweaking. We’re at a stage that we feel we’re getting close to the pre-commercialization.” Executive director Gerald Third said in his report that the association and S2G believe a facility that could produce 100,000 tonnes of glycol from 130,000 tonnes of beet sugar would cost $100 to $450 million. It would require producers to grow an extra 800,000 tonnes of beets. For the moment, Third said the two

parties will research ways to reduce costs, further refine the conversion process and develop third party financing. Alberta sugar beet growers are interested in diversifying uses for their product because they have only one buyer, Lantic Sugar, which operates the only sugar factory in Alberta at Taber. Lantic contracted 24,000 acres of beets in 2013-14 and will contract the same number this year, which is down from previous levels. “We’re a small industry and with what’s happening with our acres dropping off, we can’t get this project up and going quick enough,” said Boras. “Growth is non-existent in our industry. We’re capped at raising those 100,000 tonnes (of sugar) and if we raise 120,000 tonnes we get cut back the following year. “We had a substantially good crop last year, and we’re back down from 30,000 acres to 24,000 acres. It doesn’t give the industry a lot of stability in the sense that guys can plan around set acres from one year to the next.” Boras said the proposed plant would produce glycol feedstock rather than white sugar and would not compete with Lantic. A viable alternative market for beets would make the industry

Growers harvest good crop, but see a decline in acres Sugar beet production | Similar production numbers expected in 2014 BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Alberta sugar beet growers had a good production year, delivering 668,087 tonnes to the Lantic sugar factory in Taber. Average yield was 27.69 tonnes per acre and average sugar content was 18.53 percent. Optimal harvest weather fostered one of the quickest beet harvests ever, lasting Oct. 1 to 28. Growers planted 24,425 acres of beets, a reduction from the expected 30,000. “That is about 29 percent less than our full quota allotment, without a doubt a big blow to the growers,” said Michel Camps, a director with Alberta Sugar Beet Growers. In his report to the ASBG annual meeting, Camps said reduced beet acres coupled with plummeting grain prices made it a challenge for growers to fill their irrigation pivot circles with profitable crops this year. Executive director Gerald Third said the unexpected reduction in contracted acres led to an arbitration of contract terms, which was resolved in Lantic’s favour at the end of April. Wind and poor emergence after April seeding forced the replanting of

1,300 acres of beets. Major hailstorms damaged 7,194 acres and 230 acres were destroyed by wind. Rob Boras, ASBG president, said growers have been told that 24,000 acres will be contracted in the coming crop year, the last in the current three-year agreement between the growers and Lantic. Negotiations will begin later this year on a new agreement.

“We attempted to lock in a base price in our last master agreement and we’ve got one more year of that to give us financial stability,” he said. “Ours is a domestic market. Ninety percent of the Canadian market is supplied by foreign sourced sugar, so right now what they’re buying on the world market is cheap. In the next round of negotiations, we don’t know where that’s going to take us.”

receipts generated by the beet industry. “We will continue to work with you to open new markets, to diversify the use of your products, to invest in research and innovation and to know that some of those decisions need to be made today so that we can see future success for the long term,” said Redford.

The ExactEmerge planting system seeds accurately up to 10 m.p.h. |



New Deere runs fast through the field Precision seeding at high speed | ExactEmerge replaced the gravity seed tube with a meter and brush belt system to eliminate double seeds BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Deere has entered the high speed planting business. High speed planting, which uses narrower machines to go faster, has been big news in agricultural machinery circles the past couple of years. A few Australian and North American farm machinery companies have air seeding equipment that will travel 10 m.p.h. or more, but precision planters have typically travelled at five m.p.h. or less. Two European companies with subsidiary operations in the Dakotas and Saskatchewan have high speed planters on the market and say the machines are proving popular with American producers, especially in the corn belt. Corn is sensitive to plant spacing because it grows at different rates and plant sizes depending on what is happening with its neighbours. Like in canola planting, speed kills yield. Even the best planter using traditional seed metering and delivery methods can’t meet exacting specifications when the machines are moving at high speeds. Precision planting corn doesn’t always translate into higher yields in a western Canadian, dry land context, although it does make the crop easier to manage. However, it becomes critical to yield and management in high yielding scenarios, where water and longer growing seasons are available. Deere is the only North American planter manufacturer to offer a high speed seeding option, but rumours are that several others have machine designs in testing.

Kelby Krueger of John Deere shows the brush belt seed transport system. | MICHAEL RAINE PHOTO Kelby Krueger of John Deere was in Louisville, Kentucky, to unveil ExactEmerge, the company’s entry into the high speed race. He said the secret to being able to go faster is not to let the seed know how fast it’s travelling. In a traditional seeder setup, gravity moves seed down a couple of feet through a tube and into the soil. The faster a machine moves, the less reliable this process becomes. Seed will bounce violently if it is roughly dropped into the soil, which leads to imprecise placement and uneven growing. Deere solved this by carrying the metered seed to within a couple of inches of the ground with a brush belt. The brush holds the seed in place until it is dropped lightly into the seed row, despite forward motion of 15 feet per second. “It even works in no-till, min-till,” he said. Greg Smith, who grows 3,000 acres of row crops near Cummings, Kansas, said his farm has a mix of heavy gumbo soil as well as sandy soil. “Then there is some real poor ground.”

The ExactEmerge system uses a brush on a belt to deliver seed. | He zero tills 90 percent of the farm. Deere tested one of the units on his farm last spring. “At first I was a little skeptical. The Deere guy told me to drive the unit like I stole it. I drove it at six m.p.h. I only get one chance to plant a crop and no machinery company is going to have me wreck an acre just to prove out a machine,” he said. “We checked. It looked good. Then seven. Good, Eight, good. Nine was the same.… I wouldn’t do 10 near the road. We went out back to another field where nobody might see it if it didn’t work out.… I tried following the machine in a gator, but I couldn’t ride it that fast. I checked the job it was doing. It was the same as six m.p.h.… It works. When it’s available for preordering, I am getting one.” Smith said the machine won’t save him much time and fuel because he plans to replace his 60 foot unit with a narrower planter that is more manoeuvrable. “It takes more power to go 10 instead of five (m.p.h.), but it means I will have a machine that is better sized,” he said. “It is not just a more precise machine


at high speed. It’s also more precise than what I have at low speed.” The ExactEmerge has a new, bowl shaped meter and brush unit that eliminates double seeds. The meter hands the seed off to the brush belt, which has replaced the gravity seed tube. Krueger said the short drop eliminates problems on slopes, where seed traditionally will fall to one side of the tube and potentially land on the edge of the seed row. A brushless 56 volt motor drives the meter while another one runs the brush belt. Active hydraulics keep the row units in the ground, with operator control over the down force. The units are available for 15, 20 and 30 inch placement on 1775NT and 1795 planters with central commodity tanks. Smith said he believes the new planter needs trash units in reduced tillage operations and plans to have them on his own machine. “The brush units actually perform better in sticky soils and mud than the drop tube designs,” he said. “Deere doesn’t say that about the machine, but those brushes are better

in conditions where a farmer shouldn’t be planting. Not that I have ever done that myself, you understand.” The company said it built in replacement wear points in the system in anticipation of more wear problems because of the increased number of moving parts. However, it anticipates that the row units will need no more maintenance than traditional MaxEmerge and ProSeries equipment. Bob Timmons, who heads North American farm machinery marketing at Deere, said the company is looking at planting other crops besides corn and soybeans with the new design. Deere hasn’t released a list price for the units yet, but said it will be at a premium to traditional designs and will be available for ordering by this summer, with delivery in 2015.

Micronutrient management: less weight, same punch Advancements in micronutrient coatings on fertilizer prills provide more effective distribution in the field STORIES BY RON LYSENG



Since the 1970s, growers wanting to apply micronutrients have relied on large granules mixed in with their nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium fertilizer. The problem has been that this can result in a 150:1 ratio of fertilizer prills to micronutrient prills. The large granules are far apart from each other, which inhibits a uniform spread of micronutrients across the field. The low density means plants might not find those minor nutrients in the first season. Meanwhile, billions of fertilizer prills are evenly spread in front of the plants, benefitting the entire crop, while only some plants receive the benefit of the micronutrient, provided the soil is deficient in those elements. The solution is to attach a concentrated form of the micronutrient to all fertilizer prills so every plant accessing a fertilizer particle would access the micronutrient at the same time. Mark Goodwin, vice-president of agronomy and product development for Wolf Trax, said his company has done this by applying its dry dispersible powder coating, which contains micronutrients, onto granular fertilizers. Coating granules is not new. Wolf Trax of Winnipeg specializes in making nutrient coatings stick to fertilizer prills and seeds. Its DDP is designed for granular fertilizer, Nu Trax is for prills and seeds and Protinus is for seeds. However, what is new is coating a granule and not having the coating flake off or turn the blend to goop because of the liquids required to make the process work. Wolf Trax uses a proprietary chemical formulation that creates an electrostatic bond between the coating

The same profile cutaway is given a shot of granular 34-17-0 at 150 pounds per acre, but with the full dose of zinc coated on the prills via DDP. Now, the zinc is everywhere in the soil.

With conventional application methods, large granules of micronutrients are randomly dispersed in the soil, making it difficult for all plants to access them. This sample soil profile cutaway is 15 inches long, three inches wide and five inches deep. Based on a recommended rate of five pounds per acre of 35 percent zinc, this soil block would contain only two fertilizer prills.


and the target. The same basic technology is used for granular fertilizer and seeds. This bond keeps the coating firmly attached as the granule or seed is forced up augers or conveyors and dropped into bins. Wolf Trax is confident that the micronutrient remains bonded to the granule and believes its DDP can replace conventional micronutrient products. “That’s because we use N, P and K as a carrier for your micronutrient. Instead of scattering a small number

of big micronutrient chunks haphazardly across your field, DDP ensures that your micronutrient ends up in every spot you place an NPK prill,” Goodwin said. “The conventional means of applying a micronutrient doesn’t even begin to give you uniform blanket coverage across the whole field. They’re applied as large granules in such small doses, so there’s a dot here, a dot there and then another dot way over there. But your NPK prills blanket the whole field. If your

micronutrient is firmly attached to those prills, every plant that feeds off NPK automatically feeds off the micronutrient at the same time.” Wolf Trax analyzed two sample soil profile cutaways to demonstrate the difference between conventional micronutrient distribution and distribution with DDP. Each cutaway was 15 inches long, five inches deep and three inches wide. The first sample received an application of granular 35 percent zinc at five pounds per acre. This 225 cubic

inch block of soil contained two granules of the micronutrient. The second sample received an application of 34-17-0 at 150 lb. per acre. This 225 cubic inch block of soil contained 153 granules, all of which were coated with DDP zinc. The zinc coating was equal to the amount of zinc in the recommended two granules found in the first sample. For more information, contact Goodwin at 204-237-9653 or visit

A 30-acre Nu Trax P+ plot in a 130acre irrigated wheat field yielded seven extra bushels per acre last year. The trial took place near Purple Springs, Alta., and was conducted on the family farm of Lindsay Brewin of Wolf Trax. Brewin said 100 acres of the circle received the recommended rate of 110:35:40 incorporated as granular May 13. On the other 30 acres, she replaced the 35 pounds of granular phosphorus with two lb. of Nu Trax P+ coated onto the nitrogen and potassium prills at her local dealer. The process eliminated 33 lb. per acre from the cart. On May 17, they seeded Sedash spring wheat. Emergence was slow throughout the region because of cold spring temperatures. “Plants in the treated area emerged first and looked healthier throughout the whole season,” said Brewin. She went out at seven day intervals to do plant counts, weigh the plants and take pictures. “We had 40 percent hail damage on




NEAR RIGHT: Rather than using a liquid to make material stick to the prill, DDP (Dry Dispersible Powder) uses a positive electro-static charge on the micronutrient, which bonds it to the negatively charged fertilizer granule. Goodwin says this prevents the blend from ever becoming a goop. FAR RIGHT: One of the problems with conventional micronutrients is that they are often formulated as large chunks. The larger the granule, the more difficult it is to achieve uniform distribution in the soil. | WOLFTRAX PHOTOS


WolfTrax develops method to put phosphorus in its place BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

Think about going to the field carting along 50 pounds of a high tech phosphorus fertilizer concentrate that packs the same punch as 1,500 lb. of conventional granular phosphorus. Just to sweeten the phosphorus cake, what if it was no longer delivered as a distinct separate product but was instead firmly affixed to the nitrogen and potassium prills? Better yet, what if all the required phosphorous was firmly affixed to the seed itself? Wolf Trax of Winnipeg focuses its attention on easing farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; volume and weight load at seeding time. It all comes down to concentrating nutrients into the most manageable form possible, while still delivering the full shot of nutrient requirements to the plants, according to Wolf Traxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mark Goodwin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First we figured out how to keep micronutrients glued to conven-

tional NPK granules. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our DDP product. The obvious next step was to simplify things for farmers by applying a phosphorus coating to their nitrogen and potassium granules,â&#x20AC;? Goodwin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This product is called Nu Trax P+. It replaces 35 lb. of P2O5 per acre of pop up that growers typically use on moderate or high phosphorus fields. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s any field with a soil test Olsen P level higher than 20 p.p.m. We are also working on this approach as a seed coating, so the seed would have all its phosphorous coated on the shell.â&#x20AC;? He said the product is in a form that offers early delivery of phosphorus and some micronutrients to the plants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s applied to your N and K prills and you can be confident it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t flake off,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a phosphorous coating on the seed, I would have to call it a super pop-up fertilizer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equal to or better than putting down 35 pounds of MAP in some situations. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone head-to-head in split-field trials with

July 6. Right after the hail, we had more plants standing on the treated plot than in the control area. And the treated plot recovered faster, probably because they were healthier to begin with.â&#x20AC;? The combine moved into the circle on Sept. 14. They weighed the grain from the two areas to obtain a more accurate picture of any yield difference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a seven bu. yield benefit in the Nu Trax P+ treated area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We used two lb. of Nu Trax P at

$7.50 per lb., so that cost us $15 per acre.â&#x20AC;? The MAP that Nu Trax P+ replaced may have cost slightly more than the Wolf Trax product, but not enough to make a big difference, which figures in as a wash. The dealer charge for applying Nu Trax P+ to the granular fertilizer would likely have been about the same as the charge for blending in the MAP, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another wash. For all intents and purposes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair to say there was no significant difference in the input costs of MAP and Nu Trax P+, and it was a small trial.

growers. It was NuTrax P+ versus MAP. In fields where the soil test phosphorus was higher than 15 to 20, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re equal to or better in early crop emergence. Our cost is lower and ROI is better than MAP.â&#x20AC;? Goodwin also conducted test plots with Nu Trax P+ phosphorus coated on nitrogen and potassium granules. The treated plots were compared to plots in which P205 was applied in the conventional manner as part of the

typical blend of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. All phosphorus was applied at a rate equal to 35 lb. per acre phosphorus, or 70 lb. MAP. The test used corn, canola, soybean and wheat. All weight measurements were taken at the same time at 14 days after emergence (DAE). Each weight sample was cut at the same height from a .25 metre square. The total fresh weight (TFW) was measured in grams.

TFW of the Nu Trax P+ corn was 20.7 grams, compared to TFW of the P2O5 corn at 18.9 grams. TFW of the treated canola was 5.85 grams while TFW of the P205 canola was 4.93. TFW of the treated soybeans was 10.8 grams while the P205 soybeans weighed in at 6.6 grams. TFW of the treated wheat was 49.2 grams while the P205 wheat weighed in at 46.2 grams.

U.S. auction marts get poor report Failing to meet standards | Animal expert says many facilities are poorly designed and staff training is lacking BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Auction markets may need to beef up their animal welfare practices. “We have discovered some real issues and concerns from a welfare standpoint,” says animal behaviourist Ron Gill of Texas A & M University. “A lot of them don’t know how close they are to being in a lot of trouble.” Gill has been visiting livestock markets for the last six years assessing problems with animal care, flow of livestock, facility design and staff training. “We found simple things facilities could do to make a difference in the flow of cattle in those facilities,” he told the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association convention held in Nashville Feb. 3-7. Sometimes all that was needed was to change where people stood, make repairs to equipment or improve lighting. “We found gates that have been hung backwards for 25 years,” he said. However, it is a tradition bound sector, and resistance to change is common. Training videos on animal handling are often present, but often no one looks at them. “It is amazing how much resistance to change there is in auction markets, but it is no different there than it is anywhere else,” he said. Public stockyards are wide open, and activist groups could easily enter and capture bad things happening on video. An auction market could find itself the subject of the next expose. Jennifer Woods of Blackie, Alta., who offers animal welfare audits and training about livestock handling and facility design, said auctions are vulnerable in Canada and the United States. Different regions face different problems, and facilities differ. Some facilities are old and were not designed for good animal movement. There are 90 degree turns, dimly lit alleys and a wide variation in animal handler experience.

Thank you to our sponsors.

Animal welfare experts say many older auction facilities were not designed for efficient flow of livestock. | As well, auctions do not choose what kind of livestock they sell and must deal with problem animals when they arrive. Downer animals should never be sent to an auction barn, but accidents can happen because large volumes of livestock move through the system.

Simple mistake common in feed Feed formulation | Swine diet specialist says overstuffed mixers produce poor feed BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Steve Dritz recently spent 20 minutes telling Manitoba hog farmers about the most recent, cutting edge research on pig diet formulation. He delved deep into complex matters that demand a profound understanding of the science of nutrition. However, at the end of his talk, he chucked aside the complexities and zeroed in on a simple problem he thinks has a bigger negative impact than anything else. “I’ve been in mills all over the world and I’ve seen this commonly, that everybody tries to overfill their mixers,” said Dritz, a Kansas State University swine diet specialist. “We think of mixers as a one-ton, two-ton, three-ton mixer, but mixers are built on cubic capacity, not on tons, because different ingredients have different bulk densities.” Overstuffing a mixer is bad for feed formulation because it produces a wide variability in particle size and creates pockets of feed with different amounts of nutrients and vitamins. Research has proven that matching particle size to the growth stage of the pig is important, but Dritz said farmers and feed-makers often don’t bother to check how full they’re filling their mixers, relying instead on weight. The same weights of finishing and gestation diets can be radically different in cubic size, meaning one will fit well into a mixer while the other will be too big. Gestation diets have lots of fibre, and “you may only be able to put two and a half tons into a three ton mixer,” said Dritz. “A finishing diet, that’s maybe all corn? You can (probably) put three tons in there.” He said it’s not hard to tell if the mixer is too full. “A simple test is open that mixer up, take a look when you have your fluffiest diet in there,” he said. “Can you see the top of the ribbons? If you can’t, what happens is you get this bed of feed on top and it doesn’t mix.” Dritz polled farmers in the room about how many had mills on their farms. Lots of hands went up. Then he asked how many did nutrient variability tests. A few hands went up. Then he asked how many often tested their feed’s variability. Two hands went up. Dritz said not overfilling the mixer is the easiest way farmers can boost the value of their feed and something anyone making feed can do.

Manitoba hog, cattle and sheep producers have an opportunity to participate in a livestock price insurance program starting this spring. Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz and his counterparts in Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia unveiled the Western Livestock Pilot Insurance Program (WLPIP) in January. Manitoba agriculture minister Ron Kostyshyn didn’t participate in the initial announcement because provincial byelections were underway in the province. “This insurance program is new territory for the Manitoba livestock sector and something producers have been asking the province to pursue,” Kostyshyn said in a statement while unveiling the Manitoba portion of the program Feb. 13. “We are pleased to partner with the other western provinces and the federal government to make it a reality. Through WLPIP, producers will now have a new way to manage price risk.” The insurance plan is based on Alberta’s Cattle Price Insurance Program, which producers use to insure 900,000 of the province’s three million cattle. It provides a floor price for livestock and protection against volatile price swings. Manitoba Beef Producers, which has lobbied for livestock insurance, is pleased the province is officially on board. “MBP has been asking for a program like this for some time. This new management tool will reduce the cost of risk and will put beef production on a more level playing field, when compared with other

This could fundamentally change beef production in Manitoba.”

MBP received more positive news in early February when members approved an increase in the provincial checkoff. Effective July 1, Manitoba cattle producers will pay $3 per head to fund MBP programs. Reimer said the increase is needed because MBP had cut back its activities, particularly meetings.

“We’ve been having more conference calls. Conference calls are great, but when you have bigger issues you don’t seem to get everything done,” he said. “(Plus) the outreach to producers and industry … we had to pull back in the last year because we were short one staff person.” Last year, the provincial government terminated the voluntary $2 checkoff for the Manitoba Cattle Enhancement Council, a now defunct agency that had a mandate to expand slaughter capacity in the province. The removal of that levy has lightened the check-off burden on producers. The number of beef cows on Manitoba farms has declined in recent years, dropping from 471,500 in July 2011 to 443,700 in July 2013, according to Statistics Canada.

Copper deficiency a common issue

Feeding software made in Alberta draws international attention



Producers should assess mineral status to minimize deficiency problems


opper deficiency in cattle has been associated with a range of problems. They include poor growth, loss in milk production, changes in hair colour, anemia and nervous disease symptoms such as falling down and stumbling. Copper has also been suggested to play a role in the immune response, and cattle that are copper deficient may be more prone to infectious diseases. As well, copper deficiency has been linked to reproductive failure, although this association has been controversial. Copper deficiency can occur in two ways: â&#x20AC;˘ Primary copper deficiency can occur when cattle are fed a diet deficient in copper, which may occur in particular geographic areas that have soil that is deficient in copper. â&#x20AC;˘ Secondary copper deficiencies occur when cattle are fed diets that are high in molybdenum or sulfate. Molybdenum and sulfates are antagonistic to copper. They form complexes with copper that make it unavailable to the animal. Low forage copper, high levels of molybdenum in forage and sulfates in water are not uncommon on the northern Great Plains, and a recent research project by Dr. Leanne VandeWeyer and Dr. Cheryl Waldner of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine provided more insight into the extent of the problem in Western Canada. Blood samples were collected from slightly more than 780 beef cows from 66 cow-calf herds as part


of a larger study on beef herd productivity. The blood samples were collected from all of the available cows diagnosed as non-pregnant, as well as from some randomly selected pregnant cows on each farm. VandeWeyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s study found that 16 percent of the cows were deficient in blood copper levels, although other studies in North America have shown significantly higher percentages. However, these samples were collected in the fall when copper levels are traditionally higher than if measured in the spring. This may have accounted for the lower prevalence of deficiencies. Liver copper provides the best indication of true copper reserves, but liver biopsies are not routinely done. Blood copper levels may not give a true indication of the copper reserves available in the animal because animals will deplete their liver copper levels to keep their blood copper levels at a normal level. However, we know that the animal is truly deficient in copper and that l i v e r c o p p e r l e v e l s h av e b e e n depleted if blood levels of copper are low. VandeWeyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s study showed that herds in the northern continental divide ecoregion had significantly lower copper levels than other areas of the study. It is the mountainous region spanning the southern Alberta-British Columbia border. Gray soil in this region has previously been associated with low soil copper levels. Molybdenum levels were also high in areas with grey soil and in areas with higher amounts of precipitation. Secondary copper deficiency is known to occur when molybdenum exceeds 100 parts per million in the diet of cattle or when the ratio of copper to molybdenum drops below 3:1. VandeWeyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s study did not show a relationship between low blood copper measured in the fall and the cowsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reproductive status. Cows with low blood copper were not at a higher risk of being open. However, in a previous study, VandeWeyer demonstrated a relationship between low copper levels

in the pre-breeding period and lower fertility rates. It appears that the best time to test for blood copper levels in cows is in the spring during the pre-breeding period. This may give a better indication of the risk of primary or secondary copper deficiency and allows producers to consider appropriate supplements. Copper deficiency symptoms can appear similar to other conditions. For example, poor growth because of internal parasites or malnutrition caused by energy protein deficiencies may look similar to copper deficiency. As a result, it is important to assess the overall nutritional program and parasite control program when investigating these problems. It is also important to consult with a nutritionist and a veterinarian about appropriate mineral supplementation. Copper deficiency is one of the most common mineral deficiencies in Western Canada, and producers should test their feed and forage for minerals and consider sampling cows during the pre-breeding period to assess mineral status.

OLDS, Alta. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Much of the information gained from animal feeding trials would likely not be possible without the computer technology that was first developed in Airdrie, Alta. Growsafe Systems has evolved into an international company that helps researchers and producers track how much their animals eat and drink every second of every day. The millions of data points collected reveal which animals are gaining well and which ones may be ill because they are not eating or drinking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are able to look at an animal becoming ill four days before they show symptoms,â&#x20AC;? said chief executive officer Alison Sunstrum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more data we collect, the more we learn and all the things we think we know, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know,â&#x20AC;? she told a producer day sponsored by the Canadian Hereford Association. Outwardly the system looks simple. An animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electronic ear tag triggers sensors on the trough and its platform when it comes to eat or drink. The information not only measures how much animals ate and assesses bite sizes but also catches behaviour that shows if individual animals were pushed away by others or if they were socializing at the trough but not eating. The data shows a feeding frenzy when the feed truck comes.

Developing software that could transmit useful data and building sturdy systems that would not be damaged in a pen were major challenges for the company to overcome. As well, researchers had to figure out how to compress all the data that was collected. Last year, the patented system won an international award from the Information Technology Association of Canada for the best technological innovation for a small to mid-sized business in the private sector. The work continues as Growsafe works with purebred associations, feedlots and dairy operations that want to track health as well as feed and water intake. Most recently, it created programs for cow-calf and sheep operations that could result in monitoring feed intake on pastures. The company is also focusing on finding ways to deliver medication to sick animals without human intervention. The company installed the first commercial system at Olds College in 2001 and also worked on feed trials with Agriculture Canada researchers at Lacombe, Alta., and Lethbridge. One hundred units are installed in Canada, the United States, Finland, Uruguay, Brazil and Australia. Some are for research purposes and others are on farms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Producers from around the world have come to Olds to see the system,â&#x20AC;? Sunstrum said.

Grain storage suppliers are seeing an increase in sales following last year’s large harvest. | to talk to them for the next six months. “This is not something that is going to go away in six months,” he said. “There is too much carryout, and the movement continues to be too slow for them to catch up in a short period of time.” Baldwin said Westeel is attempting to maximize its manufacturing capacity to meet the surging demand from its distributors, despite having its own rail service problems when shipping raw material to its manufacturing plants. “We’re going to do whatever we can to get what (the distributors) need,” he said. “Thus far I think we’ll be able to meet the demand.” Sales of small bins suitable for short-term storage have been par-

ticularly strong. They are typically 15 to 27 feet in diameter. However, farmers are also buying large bins in excess of 30 feet in diameter for long-term storage. “We’re seeing a real run on everything,” said Baldwin. Yeager said there usually is no demand for bags in the spring, but this year could be an exception because a lot of the grain sitting in bags on farmers’ fields won’t be moved this winter. Those bags may need to be repaired or replaced, depending on the quality of the plastic. Animals can poke holes in the bags, making the grain inside susceptible to damage from spring rain. Yeager plans to extract grain from the bags he has stored on his fields


near Lake Lenore, Sask., and move it back to the main farm, where it will be re-bagged or put in empty grain bins. He suspected other growers will be doing the same thing, which is why he has placed orders with his plastic suppliers in China and South America. “We’ve got bags on the water right now for spring bagging,” said Yeager. He anticipated another strong fall sales program because of forecasts that call for as much as 30 million tonnes of carryout from the 2012-13 crop. “The big thing is, how much does a guy bring in?” he said. “Producers are almost to the point now where they should be thinking fall just because of the logistics of getting product here.”

Co-op expands western Canadian presence by acquiring grocery stores Federated Co-op Ltd. will buy 14 food stores from Sobeys Inc., including four with gas bars. The agreement includes four stores in Edmonton, four in Winnipeg and one each in Saskatoon, Regina, Taber, Leduc, Wetaskiwin and Fort Saskatchewan. “This transaction raises the profile of Co-op in Western Canada,” FCL chief executive officer Scott Banda said in a Feb. 14 news conference. The deal is expected to close by the

At least one segment of the agriculture business is benefitting from last year ’s massive har vest and the bogged down rail system. “We’re at an all-time high as far as our sales orders are concerned,” said Ryan Baldwin, vice-president of sales and marketing with Westeel, the largest supplier of grain bins in Western Canada. The company’s order season starts before Christmas, and demand for grain bins this year was immediately stronger than anything Westeel had ever experienced. “Early order indications from the market are close to double what they would have been a year ago,” said Baldwin. “Our order book right now is at an all-time high.” There has also been a run on fertilizer bins. “We’re booked out almost to fall on that already,” said Baldwin. Craig Yeager, owner of Grain Bags Canada, said his business experienced the same kind of overwhelming demand for bags and baggers last fall. “We sold probably about 40 percent more than normal, but we ran out,” he said. “We probably could have sold 100 percent more this year than last year with the big crop.” The company is just starting to catch up on orders for extractors to empty grain bags. “The business is a good thing to be in right now, to be very honest with you,” said Yeager. “On the other hand, I farm too and I’d love to see the grain gone and move on to the next crop year.” Baldwin said growers have told him their local elevators don’t even want

end of March with a staged brand transitional process for each store between April and May. Banda said the transaction involves 1,300 employees, about 100 per store. “All the employees that work at these facilities today we want and will be keeping them on,” Banda said. “They will be transferring over to our team. They get to change uniforms but other than that we anticipate high level of customer service, and if you have your favourite clerk, they still should be there the next day.” The federal Competition Bureau

required Sobey’s to sell some of its stores in Western Canada following its purchase of Canada Safeway last year. Banda said FCL had no choice over which Sobey’s locations to buy. “From their perspective, they put a package together that (they) presented to us. We really didn’t have a say on what the package contained. It was more, ‘do you want it or not?’ ” he said. Acquiring the stores in Edmonton and Winnipeg was important to making the purchase. “The foothold in Edmonton and

Winnipeg is absolutely critical in this transaction. That is the most strategic, important part of it,” Banda said. He said a solid Co-op membership exists in both major cities, but there is no food presence. “Our goal is to transition those into Co-op members,” he said. “The chance to buy existing facilities with quality employees that can step up and operate basically seamlessly is an enormous, enormous opportunity for our organization.” Banda said the price tag for the deal is not being disclosed at this point, pending an inventory review.

CF Industries inks deal (Reuters) — CF Industries Holdings Inc., the world’s second-largest nitrogen fertilizer producer, has agreed to long-term deals to supply ammonium nitrate. The deals come as Deerfield, Illinois-based CF focuses on nitrogen production after agreeing last year to sell its phosphate business to Mosaic for $1.4 billion US. CF said it will supply up to 800,000 tonnes of ammonium nitrate and ammonium nitrate solution annually to Orica International Ltd. and Nelson Brothers for at least 10 years starting in 2017.





Canada Bread to fly Mexican flag in $1.83 billion deal Maple Leaf sells to Grupo Bimbo | Company sheds Dempsters and other bread lines to focus on meat business TORONTO (Reuters) — Mexico’s Grupo Bimbo will buy the Canada Bread Co. for $1.83 billion, allowing the Canadian company’s parent, Maple Leaf Foods, to focus on its meat products business. Grupo Bimbo, one of the world’s largest bread makers, will pay $72 for each share of Canada Bread, a seven percent premium to the Canadian company’s closing price on the Toronto Stock Exchange Feb. 11. The purchase builds on Grupo

Bimbo’s large U.S. acquisitions in recent years and strengthens its position as a top bread maker in North America. Bimbo has expanded its footprint in recent years, acquiring Sara Lee Corp.’s North American bakery business for $959 million in 2010 and buying Hostess Brands’ Beefsteak bread in 2013. This is Bimbo’s biggest purchase since the Sara Lee deal. The family owned company said it

will finance the purchase with cash and by using long-term credit lines that it already has in place. Canada Bread is one of two dominant Canadian bakers, along with food producer George Weston Ltd., parent of the Loblaw grocery chain. It sells products under the Dempsters, Ben’s, POM and Sunmaid brands. Maple Leaf has been selling parts of its businesses in an attempt to restructure under a multi-year plan. It has recently been upgrading its meat

operations as it seeks to boost profits and better compete with rivals in the United States. Last August, Maple Leaf sold its rendering business, Rothsay, to Darling International Inc. for $645 million. And late last year, Canada Bread also said it would sell its fresh pasta business, Olivieri, to Spain’s Ebro Foods SA for $120 million. In December, following the sale of Olivieri, Canada Bread announced a

special dividend of $8 per share, netting Maple Leaf a $183 million windfall, given its stake in the company. The deal has been approved by the boards of both Grupo Bimbo and Canada Bread, and Maple Leaf has agreed to vote the shares it controls in favour of the deal. The transaction still awaits regulatory anti-trust and foreign investment regulatory approvals. Bimbo was founded in Mexico City in 1945 by Lorenzo Servitje.


Yogurt maker puts people and product before profit THE BOTTOM LINE



he business that Tinie Eilers started in her kitchen now generates more than $1 million in annual sales, but she refuses to be portrayed as an expert entrepreneur. “Of course we run it like a business, but I am not a real business person,” says the owner of Bles-Wold Yogurt. “It makes me uncomfortable when people say, ‘oh, you are so successful,’ because I have been very fortunate.” She says it was her husband, Hennie Bos, who urged her to start the business and who still handles the finances. And in an unusual reversal of roles, it was the manager of the

local Co-op store who asked her to supply his grocery. However, Eilers also brought things to the table that other farmers can learn from, especially if they’re developing a new product or service or looking for ways to engage and retain employees. The couple emigrated from Holland in 1994, bought an old dairy near Lacombe, Alta., and built a new barn for their 60 Holsteins. Eilers started making yogurt because their daughter, then 13, was diabetic and like many teens, a bit fussy. “She needed to have a good breakfast to start the day. She liked yogurt, but didn’t like what was sold here so much.” However, her daughter liked Eilers’ homemade yogurt, and so did friends and neighbours. “I was making yogurt every day in a pail in the kitchen and giving it away,” says Eilers. “I was pleased people liked it, but it was my husband who said, ‘why don’t you get a little bit more commercial?’ ” It was during her second summer

selling at farmers markets that the Co-op manager approached her. Selling to stores required a lot of work, including implementing food safety procedures and retrofitting an old barn as the production facility. However, Eilers says she had one great advantage. “We didn’t have to make a living off it. I think it would have been a lot more stressful if we needed to do that.” The milk, of course, comes from Bles-Wold Dairy, which is now up to 270 cows, and conveyed by pipe right from the milking barn. Eilers is uncompromising when it comes to making the best possible yogurt from that super fresh milk. For example, Eilers and her staff started making fruit-flavoured varieties by using a plastic paddle the size and shape of a canoe paddle to mix the fruit. However, while mixing thousands of litres manually certainly builds up the biceps, it’s also exhausting. So Eilers bought a commercial mixer, and then got rid of it.

“It was too rough on the yogurt,” she says. “We are not using stabilizers and thickeners, so if you break down the culture, the yogurt will get runny and I don’t want to do that.” This same “profits don’t come first” approach also applies to how she treats her staff. The business, which has six employees, offers “very good wages.” It’s partly to avoid turnover and continually training new staff, but Eilers also wants her workers “to feel ownership of the products and proud they are making Bles-Wold yogurt.” She says this has had a major impact, citing efforts to create a drinkable yogurt as an example. “Everybody was involved,” she says. “They would take samples home, give them to their kids and then tell us what they learned. We took what they said very seriously, and our product manager would make new batches over and over and over again.” She says there have been bumps along the way, but the approach has

helped her create a great team, even though she is quick to add that she’s no expert in managing people. However, it’s worth asking whether you would have made the same choices if you had been in her shoes. Would you have ditched the new mixer or added just a bit of stabilizer, hoping no one would notice? Would you offer higher pay and involve staff in decision-making or complain that you just can’t get good help these days? Would you revamp a new recipe “over and over and over again” just because someone’s kid didn’t think it was yummy enough? Of course, the bottom line matters, but sometimes short-term savings are short-sighted. Entrepreneurs are always being told to put passion ahead of profits. Bles-Wold is an example of what that looks like in real life.
