Quebec confirms PED case Deadly hog virus can still be contained, say veterinarians BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Quebec has become the fourth province to confirm the presence of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus. The Quebec agriculture ministry confirmed Feb. 23 that a case of the deadly hog virus has been found in the Monteregie region south of Montreal. That brings total PED cases in Canada to 24 as of Feb. 24, on a list that includes 21 in Ontario, one in Manitoba and one in Prince Edward Island. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency continues to investigate feed as a potential initial source of the virus. SEE PIG FEED SOURCE, PAGE 2


Livestock feed trapped in transportation slowdown BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

This winter’s hunt for feed grain has been frustrating for British Columbia livestock owners. “It has been almost impossible to

get a steady supply since November,” said Bill Freding, who owns Southern Plus Feedlots near Oliver, B.C. He knows piles of grain are sitting on the Prairies, but he can’t access them.


With grain movement from the Prairies to B.C. slowed to a trickle, some feed mills were forced to close because they could not get feed barley, wheat, or grain screenings from west coast terminals. “Over Christmas we shut down five

times. We just stopped production so we wouldn’t have to wait for product to come in,” said Terry Friesen, a partner at Clearbrook Grain and Milling at Abbotsford, B.C. SEE FEED TRAPPED, PAGE 3

Pig feed source checked The CFIA confirmed last week that the PED virus was present in porcine plasma feed ingredients originating in the United States and used in pellet rations prepared by Ontario feed manufacturer Grand Valley Fortifiers. The CFIA said in a Feb. 18 news release that results from those tests would be available “within days” but results were not available at press time. However, the Ontario Swine Health Advisory Board said Feb. 21 that it was confident feed was the initial source of the virus and that avenue has been closed. Grand Valley Fortifiers issued a voluntary recall two weeks ago of all feeds containing the dried porcine plasma product under investigation. CFIA said it is reviewing records of other imported swine plasma products to see if additional recalls are necessary. Pork industry officials and provincial veterinarians continue to hold meetings to inform producers about the disease situation, urging stringent biosecurity on hog farms to prevent infection and/or contain PED spread. Some also recommend producers stop using feed containing porcine plasma, at least until more is known about PED spread. The disease does not affect other animals and presents no risk to human health. However, it severely affects pork production by killing piglets, which die from dehydration and starvation. The spread of the virulent illness got the attention of federal politicians last week. The New Democratic Party called for a multi-pronged federal study on the impact, spread and mitigation of PED in Canadian swine herds, as well as methods of support available from the government for affected farmers. “The federal government must take action to ensure a cohesive and cooperative approach to dealing with this outbreak,” said NDP agriculture critic Malcolm Allen in a Feb. 20 news release. Liberal agriculture critic Mark Eyking raised questions about PED’s transmission through feed. “I have to ask if (agriculture) minister (Gerry) Ritz’s cutbacks on CFIA’s human resources had an impact; CFIA has an obligation to properly monitor feed companies and to make sure what farmers feed their livestock is safe,” Eyking said. The CFIA has been active on feed testing and the government has made funds available through Growing Forward 2 for farmers to improve biosecurity measures. However, further bad news on the hog disease front appeared last week when a virus similar to PED was found on an Ohio hog farm. Dubbed swine delta coronavirus (SDCV), its symptoms are similar to both PED and transmissible gastro-

• Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PED) does not pose a health risk to humans and does not spread to other animals.


• PED is fatal among young piglets, but older animals that contract the virus usually recover. • Strict biosecurity measures can help limit exposure or spread of PED. All who are involved in the hog industry, from feed suppliers to transporters to producers, must work together to control and limit outbreaks.

enteritis (TGE). It is one of several new strains researchers have identified in the U.S. since the PED outbreak began there in May 2013. “The new viruses are equally infectious from everything that’s been published so far about them,” said Dr. Egan Brockhoff, an Alberta swine veterinarian. “They pulled it out of clinically ill pigs.” Brockhoff, who has seen some of the infected American herds first-hand, said PED is now estimated to have affected 20 percent of the U.S. herd. “They are not slowing it down,” he said. But Canada is in a far different position, having had time to prepare a strategy. “In Canada, we can still contain this puppy,” said Brockhoff when speaking to Alberta hog producers last week. The Manitoba and Prince Edward Island cases appear to be contained and Ontario has traced the source of its infection to feed. “We’ve stopped the original source and that’s going to be one of Canada’s great stor ies,” said Brockhoff. “There’s a good chance Ontario can contain it.” FOR MORE ON PED, SEE PAGE 4.

Feed trapped in rail slow down The company processes poultry and dairy feed at two mills and relies on wheat and barley, as well as United States corn and soy for its feed mixes. “At this point we are managing, but it is nothing like it has been in the past,” he said. Friesen and Freding hope the shortages end in March but with continuing bad weather and other logistical circumstances they are not confident the trains or trucks will start running more quickly any time soon. Canadian National and Canadian Pacific railways say they are doing what they can but have cited the extreme cold and record harvest for the grain backlog issues. Others in the grain industry blame deregulation of the Canadian Wheat Board because it once helped co-ordinate shipments. “Animals are going to die if they don’t get fed. There needs to be some priorities and some co-operation,” Friesen said. Freding has been able to substitute grain with more home grown silage to feed his animals. He has even resorted to feeding cull apples from nearby fruit packing plants. Typically, they have relied on trucks to bring grain to the province’s Interior but that has posed problems with bad weather this year. In the past, truckers delivered grain to his region and then backhauled fertilizer from an Agrium plant at Trail. However, Agrium has been sending fertilizer to the Prairies by rail and few truckers are interested in one-way hauls. Freding said he has searched for grain within B.C., as well as in the U.S. to no avail. As well, they can’t get grain screening pellets from the terminals at the West Coast either because the grain is not being handled even though there are 30 to 40 ships at the port waiting for deliveries. “This costs the whole economy a lot of money,” he said.

Railways plan to focus on shipping grain to western ports Eastern, southern movements halted | Moving grain to Vancouver and Prince Rupert top priority BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz says the railways will concentrate on shipping more grain to western ports rather than transporting product east and south. “ That’s the message they’ve sent…. They will concentrate on Vancouver and Prince Rupert, to move as much grain as they can,” Ritz said Feb. 24 following a meeting with grain and railroad industry representatives in Winnipeg. “They’ve told the grain companies that they’re not going to entertain anything, in the next short time, that goes to the U.S. or Thunder Bay.” Ritz said he’s not particularly sat-

isfied with this decision because the railways should be focused on shipping grain to buyers rather than increasing volume. “They (farmers) want to be able to ship to the buyer of record. If that means it’s the U.S. port, that’s where it should go,” he told reporters in Winnipeg. “I’m more concerned about the value of the product rather than the volume.” Ritz also talked with Scott Moe, MLA and legislative secretary to Saskatchewan agriculture minister Lyle Stewart, as well as Manitoba agriculture minister Ron Kostyshyn and Alberta agriculture minister Verlyn Olson. Ritz said the logistical bottleneck

of grain shipments isn’t acceptable, and the federal government is considering all options to resolve the problem, including further regulations on railway companies. “There was also talk around reciprocal penalties, and they (railway reps) were on full blown retreat on that issue this morning.” Ritz did not specify how regulatory penalties, such as fines, might function. “The problem is until you get perfor mance standards that are entrenched, it’s really hard to even assess fines.” Olson said there should be “financial motivation” for the railways to provide a benchmark level of service. “I’m not just talking about penal-

ties, in terms of paying a fine to the federal government,” he said. “I’m thinking more about how grain companies pay demurrage. Producers have contractual obligations and they pay penalties. I see no reason why there shouldn’t be something similar for railways.” Olson said farmers cannot wait months or years for a solution to this year’s problem, which is why he is lobbying for enhanced federal oversight as soon as possible. “Some sort of federal motivation to the railways to ensure they are maximizing their capacity to haul,” he said. “Waiting for some sort of collaborative, voluntary solution may not be leading us to the kind of quick action that we need. We think the federal government needs to give the parties a push.” Saskatchewan economy minister Bill Boyd said Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway committed to dedicating thousands more grains cars, which would continue until December. Ritz said the current allocation of rail cars is underwhelming and he’s not completely sold on the railway promises. “We heard from the grain companies that their inland and port capacity will optimally run when roughly 13,000 rail cars are provided per week. That’s about three times what is happening now, or more,” he said. “They (railways) fudged those numbers very well this morning…. Depending on what the call was for and where it was going, it would of course affect how many cars they could spot and move into unload facilities.”





Feeding infected piglet parts raises eyebrows Fecal matter most common | Exposing mature animals to the virus needs to be done quickly and feedback is the only option BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

The process of feeding piglet manure and piglet parts to mature pigs as a way to generate immunity to porcine epidemic diarrhea has caught the attention of animal rights activists. It has also generated a quick response from veterinarians involved in trying to control the virus. An online video posted by the Humane Society of the United States last week showed a Kentucky pig farm infected with PED. Piglet intestines were fed back to sows at that farm. Dr. Dawn Magrath, a Lethbridge veterinarian who specializes in hogs, said feeding piglet parts is not the typical way to achieve immunity. It is more common to feed manure from infected piglets back to sows. “Unless we provide that material to them, they’re not going to get exposed,” said Magrath. “It’s kind of a needs-must situa-

tion. It’s only done for a period of time to create immunity. It’s not necessarily done forever.” She said piglet parts might have been used to create immunity in some U.S. sows when quick action was needed. “But that is not typically the procedure. We would just collect fecal material and use that,” she said. “We don’t need much material to do feedback because it is such a contagious virus, but we need to ensure that all animals are exposed. Otherwise you could get pockets of non-immunized animals in the herd and that could cause prolonged disease.” Dr. Egan Brockhoff, a hog veterinarian who has visited PED-infected barns in the United States and Asia, said vaccines have proven ineffective against the virus. PED is an enteric virus that attacks the intestines, so material that directly reaches the intestines is most effective. Brockhoff advises producers who have the virus in their barns to use

feedback as soon as possible to generate herd immunity. “We want to eradicate the disease as fast as possible, so that means we want to spread it to every pig in the barn as quickly as possible,” he told producers Feb. 19. If an outbreak is confirmed, the herd must be closed for at least 145 days and measures taken to expose all animals to the virus. “Those sows are going to develop colostral immunity about four weeks after the initial outbreak,” he said. “They’ll start producing a more rich colostrum, but more important than that, they’re going to start pushing antibodies out in their milk every day, and that’s going to line the wall of the gut and prevent infection.” Dr. Tim Pasma of Ontario Agriculture told producers in that province that feedback is a way to use the biology of the virus to advantage. He said the virus incubation period is 22 to 24 hours, and infected piglets shed the virus for seven to

nine days. Exposure of mature animals to the virus should be done as soon as possible so the process of building immunity can begin. Even when all animals are exposed, Brockhoff said the U.S. experience has shown lingering problems. “Chances of chronic scours in the farrowing room are high,” he said. A panel of veterinarians and animal care specialists reviewed and commented last week on the HSUS video taken at the Kentucky farm. “There’s no question that people may be put off by this treatment, but PEDV is wreaking havoc out there on the farms and feedback is the only control method we have found to be effective,” said Dr. Tom Burkgren, executive director of the American Association of Swine Veterinarians. “Is it better to save pigs’ lives and improve their welfare or to say this is too icky and just let pigs die? “That’s what it comes down to because there is absolutely no other alternative.”

Ontario producers anxious to get PED under control BY JEFFREY CARTER FREELANCE WRITER

DRESDEN, Ont. — Ontario pork producers knew the arrival of the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus was a distinct possibility. Most were prepared. Still, the news that a Middlesex County farm had tested positive a month ago came as a shock. Ontario Pork chair Amy Cronin said she’s had many sleepless nights since she received the call Jan.23 from Greg Douglas, Ontario’s chief veterinarian. “For the first couple of weeks it was

a huge weight on our shoulders,” she said. “I’ve spent almost 100 percent of my energy over the last month thinking, planning. Fortunately, we’ve got great people working with us, the producers, the people with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food. We’re prepared now.” Ontario Pork director Teresa Van Raay was at the Banff Pork Seminar when the news broke. “You could have heard a pin drop; it was a punch to your stomach,” she said. “The emotion of it depends on the day. Personally, when you hear

people talk, it strikes you in the heart. I’m hearing that everyone is doing what they can to care for their neighbours and care for themselves.” The number of reported cases in Ontario increased to more than 20 last week. “There’s a huge commitment to find our way through this,” Cronin said. “Farmers have been fantastic. As soon as they find out, they’ve been calling their neighbours, calling their suppliers and everyone else that should know.” Market hogs from positive farms

are shipped to federally -inspected plants at the end of the week to avoid spreading the disease through truck traffic. Unloading facilities are then cleaned and disinfected. Cronin said her family’s farm in Huron County bought a composting unit in response to the outbreak, and there are plans for a truck wash. As well, the farm’s biosecurity protocol has been reviewed and improvements made. Those steps are among the recommendations made by Dr. Bill Moore of South West Ontario Veterinary Services. It’s essential that biosecu-

rity protocols are adhered to 100 percent of the time,” he added. “I think the good news is that the containment strategies that have been employed have been working well so far,” Moore said. It’s suspected, though not yet proven, that most of the cases have been linked to feed with a contaminated ingredient: porcine blood plasma. Farms have viable options when t h e b i o s e c u r i t y p ro t o c o l s a re breached, Moore said. “If you catch it early, this disease can be eliminated, but you need all your employees working together.”

Rosy year ahead for farmers: Ag Canada KAP president skeptical | Doug Chorney fears outlook is ‘overly optimistic’ BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Canadian farmers generated nearrecord income in 2013 and are expected to have another terrific year in 2014, according to Agriculture Canada. Aggregate net cash income for 2013 is projected to be $13.23 billion, just shy of the historical peak of $13.35 billion set in 2012. Average net operating income on a farm level is forecast to be an all-time high of $68,498. Record production helped offset falling prices toward the end of the year, and farmers saw “robust hog and cattle prices” because of low North American supplies. The outlook for 2014 is for continued prosperity in the farm economy. Aggregate net cash income is expected to drop five percent to $12.56 billion but that would still be 23 percent above the 2008-12 average. Crop prices are expected to be lower than they were last year, but farmers will have a lot of grain from the 2013 harvest to market throughout 2014. “Total livestock receipts will not

change significantly in 2014, but cattle and hog farms will continue to see tight markets and higher prices,” Agriculture Canada said in the executive summary of its farm income forecast report. Humphrey Banack, vice-president of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, has no problem with the robust farm income forecasts. Crop prices plummeted after harvest but that doesn’t mean a lot of grain is being sold at those values. “There is a fair number of producers that have priced product at higher levels than they are today,” he said. “If we were to take the entire crop and price it at today’s markets, you would see (farm income) substantially lower.” Banack said fall calves are fetching $1,000 to $1,200 per animal, the finished price of beef is almost at record highs and cow and slaughter prices are good. Pork prices were strong through much of last year. He agreed this year’s bountiful harvest will offset lower prices in 2014. “Grain income kind of lags one year. I would see some challenges in 2015,” he said.

FARM INCOME TO REMAIN HIGH An exceptional harvest is expected to keep farm income near historical highs in 2013 and 2014. Agriculture Canada is forecasting $13.23 billion in net cash income in 2013, just shy of the all-time high of $13.35 billion posted in 2012. The outlook for 2014 calls for $12.56 billion, which is still well above the fiveyear average between 2008 and 2012.

Doug Chorney, president of Keystone Agricultural Producers, also has no qualms with the 2013 forecast, but he wonders about the 2014 outlook. “ ‘I hope they’re right’ would be my first response, but I am fearful that (forecast) is overly optimistic,” he said. Chorney worries about what is going to happen to quality because plenty of crop is being stored in bags and other forms of what was supposed to be temporary storage. “When the weather warms up, if we don’t move this grain we’re going to have a real potential problem with risk of insect and spoilage damage.” Chorney believes the reduction in commodity prices will weigh more heavily on farm incomes than does the increased amount of grain that farmers have to sell. “I think a five percent decline (in farm income) is really overly optimistic. I think it’s going to be greater than that,” he said. Agriculture Canada also released a 20-year outlook for Canadian agriculture. The outlook projects an increase in grain and oilseed prices from today’s depressed values. Rising global demand will boost prices much higher than pre-2007 levels, and any significant drought or flood could cause another bull run. Canola production is expected to continue expanding to accommodate a larger Canadian crushing industry, but the global growth in demand for cereal grain will cap oilseed expansion. Cattle and hog prices are expected to “remain at higher levels” over the next 20 years. As well, livestock producers will experience relief from the sky-high crop prices of the last couple of years. Hog and cattle exports are expected to benefit from further revision of

U.S. country-of-origin labelling in 2015, although slaughter hog and weanling exports will not return to historically high levels. Chorney doesn’t know how much faith to put in the medium-term outlook, considering that last year around this time Agriculture Canada was predicting that commodity prices would remain robust for the next 10 years. “That’s how accurate they are. One year later, it’s a complete change.” However, he did recently hear a presentation from an economist at the CropConnect conference in Winnipeg who was forecasting a big rebound in crop prices by the end of this year. “I want to believe (the Agriculture Canada forecast). I’m a typical farmer. Before seeding I’ve got the world by the tail. I’m optimistic that we’re going to have good times ahead.” However, his usual enthusiasm has been tempered by the massive de-cline in crop prices witnessed this winter. “My own psyche as a businessperson has been kind of rattled and I’m hearing that from all our members,” said Chorney. “People are shell-shocked by what has happened this winter. You can issue all kinds of projections and reports, but the reality is I talked to a farmer in Swan River last week who was offered $3.89 a bushel for No. 1 red spring wheat. He’s pissed off.” Banack is optimistic about the future because of the ever-expanding world population and growing middle class, but another important factor needs to be included in the medium-term outlook. “A great crop across Kazakhstan and Russia can fully decimate a wheat market,” he said. “The markets we play in are volatile, and we’re going to continue to see that volatility.”

Farm debt is at an all-time high, but producers appear well equipped to handle the extra debt load, according to Agriculture Canada. Total farm debt stood at a record $72.6 billion in 2012, up six percent from the previous year. Aggregate farm debt has been growing steadily for decades, but there is another statistic that shows farmers are in good financial shape to service that debt. The net worth for an average farm, which is the difference between total assets and total liabilities, is projected to be a record $1.9 million in 2013 and grow to $2 million in 2014. The average farm is expected to have $2.4 million of total assets in 2014 and $400,000 in total liabilities. Agriculture Canada considers it to be a healthy balance sheet, which continues to improve as land prices push up the value of total assets and strong incomes lead to improved ability to manage debt levels. However, some farm leaders are worried about rising debt levels. “A lot of that debt is not in assets that are marketable such as land and buildings,” said Keystone Agricultural Producers president Doug Chorney. “A lot of it is quota. A significant amount of it is quota.” As well, the value of quota has been declining in Manitoba because of the uncertainty over dairy supply management due to concessions the federal government made in the preliminary free trade agreement with the European Union. “If we were to see a material loss on quota values, that will be hard to recover from because that’s an asset on the books that is not really worth anything other than to another dairy farmer,” said Chorney. Humphrey Banack, vice-president of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, worries about the long-term health of the industry when the average farm has $2.4 million of assets. “To get that next generation coming in will be a challenge (for them) to come in and buy those assets from us,” he said. An analytical paper published last week by Statistics Canada shows farms are getting bigger and farmers are getting older. The average farm area increased from 198 to 778 acres between 1991 and 2011. Over the same period, the average age of far m operators increased from 47.5 to 54 years while the number of far m operators decreased from 390,875 to 293,925. “The trends of fewer operators and fewer farms show no signs of reversing and could indicate significant turnover in farm assets in the future,” said Statistics Canada. Chorney said the baby boom bubble leading to an aging farm population is a concern for agriculture. The number of farms on which the oldest operator was 55 years or older was 55 percent in 2011 versus 38 percent in 1991. “We aren’t seeing retiring farmers replaced by new farmers. That land is being farmed by the neighbour,” he said. “Farms are getting bigger. That’s a fact of life.”

Canola, pulses gain from wheat Oilseed demand strong | Oat and flax acres are also expected to rise while barley will fall

High carryout to keep prices in doldrums, say analysts




Prairie farmers will seed more canola acres this spring, even with slumping prices, while running away from hard red spring wheat, FarmLink Marketing Solutions predicts. As well, the general gloom around canola and wheat will allow the acreage of some of Western Canada’s traditional crops to crawl back a bit after being spurned in the recent bull market. FarmLink released its estimate of Canadian 2014-15 acreage at the Grainworld conference Feb. 24, calling for spring wheat to fall to 16.5 million acres from 19 million last year. It also predicts that canola will rise to 21 million acres from last year’s 19.9 million. Flax will increase by 30 percent to 1.4 million acres, while barley will continue to shrivel, falling to 6.6 million acres from last year’s 7.1 million acres. Oats will rebound to about the five year average of 3.5 million acres, much higher than last year’s 3.2 million, while durum will ease back to 4.8 million from last year’s almost five million acres but still remain higher than the five year average of 4.7 million. FarmLink’s Jon Driedger said the biggest percentage changes will likely be among the small crops. “It’s a combination of pretty good demand for the crops … and inputs have been going up (for wheat and canola),” said Driedger. Mustard, canaryseed, sunflowers, dry beans, peas and lentils should see significant area gains, which could make prices volatile, he said. The shift to canola from spring wheat is partially because canola has bigger domestic markets from crushers and partly because world


FarmLink says the biggest change in acres will be in specialty crops like mustard, sunflowers and lentils. | FILE PHOTO oilseed demand is stronger than cereal grain demand. The ability to clear crop from bins makes canola more attractive than most cereals because of the terrible time farmers are having moving any crop. Most analytical firms have loose internal projections for 2014 spring acreage, but FarmLink’s Grainworld estimate release has become a closely watched set of numbers, moving the spring seeding guessing game to a more serious level. Chris Ferris of Informa Economics, another firm that forecasts acreage and production, said FarmLink’s numbers looked OK to him and were similar to numbers his company is using. “The general direction all seems fairly reasonable,” said Ferris.

CANOLA, PULSES ON THE RISE Farmers will likely plant less wheat and more canola than last year, based on analysis by FarmLink Marketing Solutions.

Grain markets got little good news last week from analysts looking toward 2014-15. “I think we’re in this game (of low prices and clogged logistics) for the next 18 to 24 months,” Parrish and Heimbecker wheat marketer Dean O’Harris told Grainworld Feb. 24. “You’re going to have to have at least two years in a row in order to make a significant difference in the long-term trend of the markets,” he said. The overall world wheat stockpile is not onerous, but O’Harris said Canadian supplies are bulging and can’t be moved fast enough to avoid a big increase in carryout. The free ride that U.S. wheat had because of small corn crops is gone. It leaves a burdensome wheat ending stocks situation. O’Harris said the Canadian 201213 stocks-to-use ratio was 18 percent, but the 2013-14 ratio will probably soar to 37 percent. It could drop to 30 percent for 2014-15, but “that’s still a pretty significant number.” Some projections have had the 2013-14 all-wheat carryout climbing to 11.5 million tonnes and then falling to 9.6 million in 2014-15. However, the 2013-14 carry out could rise to 13.5 million tonnes if the transportation system is truly behind by two million tonnes. O’Harris said the stocks situation will be terrible again if 2014-15 produces more than a 30 million tonne all-wheat crop. “My biggest question is what happen if we have a 32 million tonne crop,” he said. “A 32 million tonne crop with just the numbers sitting here today, with a seven million tonne increase in carryout, feels like a 37 million tonne crop again.… If the carryout is actually going to be 13 million tonnes, it’s going to feel like a 39 million tonne crop.” CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE





U.S. could reverse stand on lower ethanol mandate RIN market signals change | A lower mandate would have reduced corn demand by 500 million bushels, says the Renewable Fuels Association BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A looming threat to grain prices appears to be waning. An analysis by an agricultural economist at the University of Illinois suggests the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will reverse its plans to reduce the corn ethanol mandate. Last November, the EPA proposed reducing this year’s mandate to 13 billion gallons from 14.4 billion retroactive to Jan. 1, which would have significantly affected this year’s corn demand, carryout and prices. The value of renewable identification numbers (RIN) started to plunge in July, well in advance of the EPA announcement. A RIN is a paper credit that blenders earned in previous years when they blended more ethanol than they were obligated to under the federal mandate. They can use those credits or buy them from other refiners to meet current obligations without actually blending ethanol. A RIN is worth less when the mandate is shrinking because there would be less demand for the product. University of Illinois professor Scott Irwin wrote in his blog post for Farmdoc Daily that he believes it was more than coincidence that RIN values fell precipitously in advance of the EPA’s November announcement. “The best explanation was that some RINs traders either had a remarkable ability to forecast EPA policy decisions or had access to EPA policy deliberations before the general public,” wrote Irwin. The opposite trend is occurring today. Ethanol RIN values increased by nearly 50 percent between Jan. 27 and Feb. 5. “Once again, the RINs market may be providing an early warning signal about a change in EPA policy,” said Irwin. “RINs traders believe the odds of the EPA reversing the proposed write-down of the renewable man-

date for 2014 in final rule making have increased sharply.” The suspicion was reinforced by a Feb. 3 statement from EPA administrator Gina McCarthy at a meeting of the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture, where she spoke about the more than 15,000 comments the administration received on its proposal. “I have heard loud and clear that you don’t think we hit that right,” she said. “(The final rule will be) in a shape that you will see that we have listened to your comments.” The Renewable Fuels Association said in an October blog that the proposed 1.4 billion gallon reduction in the ethanol mandate would reduce corn demand by 500 million bushels and result in 2.4 billion bushels of carryout. The blog noted that Deutsche Bank said the EPA proposal would reduce corn prices by 20 to 25 percent, or about $1 per bushel. That would drop corn prices to about $3 per bu., the lowest level since fall 2009. Rich Nelson, chief strategist with Allendale Inc., doesn’t think the full 500 million bu. of demand would be lost. “We have to keep in mind that these (ethanol) producers have capacity to produce beyond that (mandated) amount and they would happily produce beyond that amount if they could export the excess,” he said. Nelson believes the reduction in demand would be closer to 250 million bu. and that corn prices could fall by 30 to 50 cents per bu., which


John Griffith of grain company CHS offered little hope for sharply higher prices in 2014-15 on durum but said some of the supply overhang will probably dissipate during the year, creating a better future. It is dry in the key consuming region of western North Africa, so import demand will increase if that is not alleviated completely within the next three months. Griffith said Canadian farmers are unlikely to produce a record highyielding crop again this year. He counselled farmers to have patience while the oversupply is worked down because there’s no quick solution to the situation. “We are clearly living with a burdensome supply in the world today,” said Griffith. O’Harris was not bullish about


prices, but he wasn’t bearish either, expecting a likely end to the slide that has gone on for a year. “I think it’s starting to base out,” he said abut durum and milling wheat prices. He doesn’t expect the recent wheat price rally to continue for long and believes the lows could be slightly exceeded. However, prices are probably at a long-term bottom and will likely trade sideways for the next year or two, he added.

would still result in the lowest corn prices since 2009. However, he suspects Irwin is correct and the EPA is about to reverse its proposal, which could boost corn prices. He believes the recent rally in corn prices was partially fueled by market speculation that the EPA is about to backtrack on its plans. Prices could drift another 15 cents per bu. higher if t h e r u m o u re d p o l i c y re v e r s a l becomes reality. However, reduced mandates could be back on the table next year, even if there is a policy reversal, because of mounting pressure from the oil industry, food companies and livestock sector. “That lobby is still much too strong to say that this is a done deal,” said Nelson. There is no timetable for the EPA’s final ruling.

Analysts expect the U.S. Environmental Agency to backtrack on its plan to lower the ethanol fuel mandate, which could weaken corn prices. | FILE PHOTO





Unusual El Nino may deliver hot, dry summer in West Cool, wet U.S. Midwest | A warming central Pacific and a cooling in the eastern Pacific could worsen drought in western U.S. BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

It is becoming apparent that an El Nino is forming, but for now it looks to be an unusual version, says a weather forecaster. There has been a distinct warming in Pacific Ocean temperatures in the past couple weeks, but the warming is occurring in the central tropical Pacific. A typical El Nino is associated with a warming trend in the eastern equatorial Pacific where ocean temperatures have been cooling. A warming in the central Pacific combined with a cooling in the eastern Pacific is indicative of the development of an El Nino Modoki phenomenon, which delivers different weather patterns to North America than a typical El Nino. Scott Yuknis, lead forecaster with the Climate Impact Co., said it would likely result in a dry and hot growing

An El Nino Modoki phenomenon would prevent late summer rains across Texas and the southern Plains, where it is already dry. | FILE PHOTO season in Western Canada, wet and cool conditions in the U.S. corn belt and dry and hot weather further south in the winter wheat growing area of the Great Plains. The ridge pattern over Alaska, which has caused the cool weather in Western Canada this winter, would shift south and east, setting

up over the western portion of North America. “Western Canada would be dry and the summer would likely be hot,” said Yuknis. The western half of the United States would experience similar conditions, exacerbating the growing drought in that region of the U.S.

Conditions in the Great Plains and Midwest regions of the U.S. would be a flip-flop of what would typically happen under El Nino conditions. It would be unusually wet in the corn belt, which would suppress the summer heat. States in the western Plains would experience a mixture of the hot and dry weather in the western U.S. and the cool and wet conditions in the Midwest. “The western Plains are going to be in and out of the hot weather but not persistent in it,” said Yuknis. An El Nino Modoki would tend to deflect tropical cyclone activity forming in the Gulf of Mexico, preventing important late-summer rainfall from moving north across Texas and into the southern Plains. “That really is the best way to generate important rainfall once we get into the second half of summer,” said Yuknis. “That tells me we would be reliant

on spring rains to prevent central U.S. drought.” He believes the spring rains will happen in the Midwest but not in the western and southwestern Plains. There has been plenty of wet snowfall in the Midwest during the second half of winter. That means good soil moisture, which reinforces the prediction for wet and cool conditions in the spring and summer in that important region for corn and soybean production. However, there is a risk of drought amplifying in the winter wheat growing areas of Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas under an El Nino Modoki scenario. Yuknis said the big lingering question is whether the warming in the central Pacific is persistent enough that it eventually breaks down the cooling pattern in the eastern Pacific and causes a traditional El Nino to form, which would change the forecast once again.


Fiddling with details doesn’t change USDA’s main message MARKET WATCH



must start out with a correction regarding last week’s column. I quoted Canadian Grain Commission export figures to the beginning of February for lentils that implied export movement was exceptionally poor. I forgot that grain commission figures are for bulk shipments. Lentils move mostly in containers, and so I drew the wrong conclusion. The situation is similar for the pea numbers I quoted in the column. The most up-to-date numbers for total lentil exports come from Statis-

tics Canada’s Dec. 31 supply and disposition report. That report shows lentil exports from Aug. 1 to Dec. 31 at 763,000 tonnes, up from 552,600 tonnes at the same point in the previous crop year. It is a record large movement for that period. In peas, total movement from August to the end of December was 1.4 million tonnes, up from 1.09 million in the same period the previous year. So my worries about overwhelming ending stocks in pulses were wrongly placed, at least based on the first five months of the crop year. With that out of the way, let’s look at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s crop projections for 2014, which were issued last week. They showed continuing large production and downward pressure on crop prices. However, the futures markets did not cave in, indicating that the

assumptions are already largely incorporated into current prices. As well, several analysts questioned the USDA’s acreage and ambitious yield forecasts. Soybean prices have held up better than corn values this year, so an acreage shift away from corn to the oilseed was expected. The USDA forecasts a soybean seeded area of 79.5 million acres, up from 76.5 million last year. Expected harvested acres are 78.5 million, up from 75.9 million last year. The corn area is 92 million acres, down from 95.4 million. Harvested acres are 84.6 million, down from 87.7 million. Some analysts think the USDA lowballed the seeded area forecasts, alleging it did not fully account for the number of acres not seeded last year because of weather problems, which should come back into production this year, and the number of acres that came out of the Conserva-

tion Reserve Program. The USDA stands by its numbers. On the yield side of the equation, the forecast of a national average of 165.3 bushels per acre of corn, which would be 6.5 bu. higher than in 2013, raised some eyebrows. The department noted that last year ’s yields were tr immed by delayed plantings because of excessive moisture, particularly in the western corn belt, and late summer dryness. The trend yield projection is based on a model that accounts for planting progress and summer precipitation and temperatures. The USDA keeps making these high yield forecasts, but reality keeps getting in the way. The national average yield has not topped 160 bu. an acre since 2009 and has averaged 149.4 over the past five years. The department expects that its combination of lower acreage and


higher yield will produce a crop slightly larger than last year at a shade less than 14 billion bu. It pegs total supply at a record 15.49 billion bu. It sees total domestic and export use at 13.38 billion bu., leading to 2014-15 year-end stocks at 2.1 billion bu., up 43 percent from the expected 2013-14 carryout. It sees the season average corn price falling to $3.90, down from $4.50 this year. You can quibble with the USDA’s numbers, but even if you push up acreage a little and trim yield, in the end the key numbers of total supply and ending stocks change little. It seems that comfortable stocks and the weakest prices in years are avoidable only if there is a weather disaster in some major production region. Follow D’Arce McMillan on Twitter @darcemcmillan.

CANFAX REPORT FED MARKET STANDOFF Packers and feedlots in the Canadian market could not agree on a price last week, resulting in weaker bids despite strong U.S. fed cattle prices, rising cattle futures and a lower loonie. Price trends could not be established. Western Canadian packers fell back on captive inventories, and interest in the cash market was tepid. Feedlots, which have been marketing cattle early, had the capacity to wait things out. Rail bids started last week steady at $230 per hundredweight delivered but fell $3-$4 Feb. 20. Producers were not willing to trade cattle at a cash to futures basis of -$23. Most of the cash offering was expected to be carried for a week, while some were reallocated to fill contracts. The previous week’s AlbertaNebraska cash-to-cash basis was -$21.30. American inquiries were reported, but no sales on a negotiated cash basis were reported. Weekly fed exports to Feb. 8 were steady at 7,827. Weekly western Canadian slaughter was 32,042 head, up seven percent from the same week last year and the sixth consecutive week of higher slaughter. Packers still have a comfortable

supply, which means cash trade will be light again this week.

COW PRICES RISE The butcher cow market continued to set records, a rare situation for this time of year. D1, D2 cows ranged $82-$96 to average $90.20, and D3s ranged $72$86 to average $80.13. Rail grade cows were $176-$181 per cwt. Butcher bulls rose for the sixth consecutive week and are at the highest levels since August 2012. Bulls were 92.13, up 73 cents. Non-fed exports are running faster than at this point last year.

FEEDER PRICES UP Feedlot profitability is supporting

demand, but lack of pen space at some feedlots has tempered the market. Interest from American and eastern Canadian buyers has been positive. Steers were up $1.70 per cwt. on average, and heifers were up $1.46. Lighter calves showed the most strength. Heavier feeders were mostly flat or in some cases under pressure, likely as a result of limited bunk space. Auction volumes were higher than the previous week and up 40 percent over the same week last year. The auction volume is up 40 percent his year thanks to the strong prices but should start to slow. Last fall’s early marketings and strong exports will keep feeder replacement numbers tight heading into spring. Barley prices have risen in some

areas. Bred cows and bred heifers traded at $1,100-$1,700.

U.S. BEEF RISES U.S. boxed beef prices rose as reduced slaughter tightened beef supply. Choice was up $6.22 at $214.32 US per cwt., and Select climbed $3.60 to $211.36. Strong cow prices and limited supplies pushed 90 percent fresh lean beef to a record high of $247.28, up $14.17 from the previous week and $32.35 from a year ago. Canadian cut-out values for the week ending Feb. 15 were unavailable.

CATTLE ON FEED U.S. feedlot placements in January

rose nine percent to 2.03 million, much more than the expected 2.5 percent increase. The numbers were expected to weigh on deferred live cattle futures contracts The total on-feed supply as of Feb. 1 fell three percent to 10.76 million; Analysts had expected a 4.1 percent decline. Marketings in January were 1.788 million, down five percent, in line with analysts’ expectations.

WP LIVESTOCK REPORT HOGS RISE Rising pork prices allowed U.S. packers to raise bids for hogs. Snowstorms in the U.S. limited hog deliveries. Some packers were buying in expectation of tighter supplies in coming weeks. The porcine epidemic diarrhea virus is killing millions of piglets. Iowa-southern Minnesota hogs delivered to packing plants sold at $67.50 US per hundredweight Feb. 21, up from $62-$62.50 Feb. 14. The estimated pork cut-out value was $98.03 per cwt. Feb. 21, up from $94.33 Feb. 14. Estimated weekly U.S. slaughter to Feb. 22 was 2.134 million, up from 2.113 million the previous week. Slaughter was 2.069 million last year in the same week.

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. have recently been selling at an average of $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 recent sales. In light trade, 2012 bulls and heifers 800-900 lb. were $1.90$1.95 per lb.

Maintaining young farmers requires further action


he last few years have been good for agriculture, giving rise to considerable positive press and much discussion about a resurgence in interest from young people. Young farmers are turning out at a great rate at farm shows across Western Canada, full of intelligence and enthusiasm. Yet the official numbers from Statistics Canada tell a different demographic tale. Last week’s Statistics Canada report, entitled Demographic Changes in Canadian Agriculture, takes the farm census of 2011 one step further and compares it with numbers from 1991. It shows that there has been a precipitous decline in the number of farmers younger than 40. Younger farmers, predictably, also own smaller and less profitable farms than older ones. The number of farms where the oldest operator was younger than 40 dropped nearly 75 percent between 1991 and 2011, from 74,159 to 20,299 farms. They make up just 10 percent of the total, down from 26.5 percent 20 years earlier. Obviously, a lot of the farmers who were 40 then are 60 now, and still farming. The percentage of farmers 55 and older has soared to 55 percent, up from 37.7 percent. What remains unclear is how many younger farmers are in family partnerships with their older relatives, and how that is, or is not, reflected in the statistics. The large percentage of older farmers is not surprising considering the rapid aging of Canada. Businesses of all descriptions are facing challenges in terms of turnover. However, a low number of young farmers could be culturally devastating to rural Canada. “As the number of younger farmers continues to shrink, it is also reasonable to expect that significant amounts of farm assets will be bought by remaining farmers (increasing the number of larger farms) or may also be purchased by beginning farmers, private investors and immigrant farmers,” Statistics Canada said in its report.

Having young farmers entering the business and maintaining family farms are positive goals, but a new vision for assisting them would be helpful. The largest problem has long been high-barrier entry points into the industry. High land prices mean a down payment on a farm big enough to yield profits could be in the million dollar range. Few young people have pockets that deep. Most young people, then, must either leverage their parents’ holdings or wait until they retire. Farm Credit Canada has been helpful in coming up with creative ways to provide credit to young farmers, but there still must be some equity to leverage borrowing. Retiring parents cannot always afford to give land to their children. They need a return on their investment to fund their retirement years. Therefore, most young farmers must still come up with funds to take over the family holdings. There are few options to lure young people onto the land. One is to find new avenues of capitalizing young farmers, and that may require some kind of public support. There must also be a dedication to proper succession planning by older farmers. Because they must see some return on the transfer of land, older farmers are doing the next generation a favour by engaging in careful tax planning to ameliorate capital gains. The bald fact is that if Canadians want to have family farms, they may need to support them. In good years, all is well. In bad years, when it’s hard to pay the mortgage and the loan on the combine, a better support system would be necessary to keep young farmers above water. Otherwise, farms will simply get larger and be owned by companies instead of families. Canada must decide.

Olympics teach important lessons about winning and losing COWBOY LOGIC



like the winter Olympics, even better than the summer Olympics. Maybe it’s because I’m a snow and cold, northern climate kind of guy with a pair of cross country skis leaned up against the garage. Any Olympics will give us stark images and valuable lessons of winning and losing that we don’t get to experience every day. Most days here are pretty noncompetitive. I’m mostly satisfied to get our kids on the

school bus and get the chores done on the ranch. We do get some competition in our lives, though. As parents, we can’t help but have our kids in activities that are competitive. We don’t enroll them in every activity solicited to us by the forms and flyers that come home in their school backpacks, but they get to do a few things. The boys are both in Cub Scouts, and the big competition of the Cub Scout year is the Pinewood Derby. They make their own cars to race down a track and see who can cross the finish line first. Our nine-year-old has raced before with some success. Our seven-yearold was making his first attempt as a Tiger Cub competitor. I helped add the weights to their cars to get them close to the five ounce optimal veloc-

ity, but, otherwise, it was their project. Our seven-year-old was the first one up. He was full of anticipation and excitement. He wanted to win. The two cars went down the track and he lost. The excitement drained from his face. And when I caught his eye 20 feet away, the sadness and disappointment started to well up in him. We left the room and I tried to wipe away the sadness with the old lines, “not everybody can win, you did your best, I’m proud of you, we should be happy for your friends that won and congratulate them.” All good lessons, of course, because, in life, not everybody gets to win, but we do our best and we try to be a good sport. We should always know that Dad will be proud of us when we try. However, when the Olympics are on, we can show our children real

time examples of victory and defeat. The athletes I’ve seen have all set pretty good examples. There’s the red headed gold medalling snow boarder, Shaun White, who surprised everyone by not winning the half pipe, finishing fourth with no medal at all. His lessons were trophy class, though: hug the winner, tell everyone you’re happy for the guys who won, and that, despite having a bad day, he wasn’t losing heart and was looking forward to the next time. It’s OK to play hard, lose and be disappointed, too. When the U.S. women’s hockey team took silver to Canada’s gold, the hurt was evident. In their mind, they didn’t win the silver, they lost the gold. Still, some of those women will be back in four years. They will never give up, no matter the hurt. I also like that the Olympics can

remind my kids that sports can be part of a healthy lifestyle, but it’s not everything. My new Olympic hero is Ole Einar Bjørndalen, the skiing, shooting biathlete from Norway with a record 12 Olympic medals to his career credit. I like having world class athletes named Ole Einar Bjørndalen, who can come from a small farm, who can be 40 years old and still win a gold medal, and who can be a world class competitor but still have a day job. He’s a carpenter. So, sports can be important and healthy, but so is building a house for someone. Maybe Ole Einar can talk to my children about skiing and shooting and carpentry, and winning and losing and life.

Original pesticide registrants not leaving

Olympic Games can help unite Canadians



t appears that original registrants of pesticides in Canada have done an effective job of spreading a message that is patently untrue, contrary to market reality and flying in the face of what is happening in other countries. This is impeding Canadian farmers’ access to a whole array of lower cost generic pesticides such as they have in the United States. Let me explain. Readers of this ubiquitous agriculture newspaper are well aware of the diligent and ongoing efforts of concerned stakeholders to modify generic registration regulation and improve the Pest Management Regulatory Agency’s management of that regulation. There are also efforts to eliminate a rather glaring contradiction between protection of proprietary information on pesticides policy and PPIP regulation, perpetrated on us by the architects of the same. However, according to certain reliable sources, rhetoric spread by certain original registrants and organizations representing those same companies is helping paralyze the process, confuse the PMRA and affect the willingness of some farm organizations to fight for massive cost savings for farmers. The rhetoric is that “if you change the regulations, if you make it easier to register generics in Canada, we will stop investing in Canada.” That is ludicrous and will never happen. If someone ever tells you that, call them on it. Some of the same companies that

Furthermore, no one has ever questioned or tried to undermine the main pillars of protection for original products and the registrants of those

products, which is a 10 year exclusive period and fair compensation for legitimate data. Beyond those basic protections, however, maximum effort should be exerted to promote the PMRA’s own policy guideline: “Favourable conditions for generic pesticide producers to enter the pesticide market and to increase the selection of products available to the user.” Why would we want to relieve original registrants of the responsibility of being more competitive at the

expense of farmer competitiveness when everyone else in Canada, regardless of the industry, has to sharpen their pencil? The federal government clearly gets it, demonstrated by its recent budget, which included government intentions ”to introduce legislation to address price discrimination that is not justified by higher operating costs in Canada and to empower the commissioner of competition to enforce the new framework.” Farmers are justified in being frustrated at a regulatory agency that does not comply with the government agenda of helping farmers be more cost competitive or at anyone that does not advocate more favourable conditions to increase the selection of products available to farmers. Farm organizations need to ignore the empty threats made by these companies. The PMRA should know better. Farmers face a far bigger threat. Some generics have already pulled out of the process because Canada is one of the most difficult countries in the world in which to register a generic pesticide. The paralysis at the PMRA is costing Canadian farmers hundreds of millions of dollars a year, which is the result of one of the biggest hoaxes ever perpetuated in the Canadian agriculture industry. Don’t allow the farm organizations that represent you be a party to it. Bob Friesen is the chief executive officer of Farmers of North America Strategic Agriculture Institute.


New model for hail insurance promises savings HURSH ON AG



here will be additional competition in the hail insurance market this year. A company called AG Direct Hail Insurance Ltd. says it will reduce hail insurance premiums significantly by using an online delivery model. Bruce Lowe, an entrepreneur with roots in Saskatchewan, is the driving force behind the new concept. He has backing from a major insurance provider, Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty. Lowe claims that commissions paid to hail insurance agents and brokers add 10 percent to the cost of policies. Producers will be able to log onto the AG Direct Hail website, check the hail premiums in any township

and sign up online should they decide to proceed. Many producers are routinely doing their crop insurance policies online, so the concept for private hail insurance would seem to be long overdue. Lowe said his company will also save money by spending less on operating costs, including administration and advertising. Don’t expect a Christmas card or a free hat, but that’s a small sacrifice if you can get reliable hail insurance at a reduced cost. Lowe said the company also plans to streamline the claim adjustments process and insists it will not be at the expense of fair and just loss awards. However, he can’t yet provide the specifics. Some producers will likely be hesitant to use AG Direct Hail until they believe that loss adjustments will be equivalent to those from current insurers. Lowe said his loss adjustments will be on par with what producers would typically expect from government and municipal providers.

Producers aren’t always happy with their loss adjustments or with some company policies, but there’s no doubt that many of them have a degree of loyalty to established companies, or at least loyalty to a particular agent in a rural community. As the new kid on the block, AG Direct Hail will not be popular with the hail insurance establishment. It will be interesting to see if the company can deliver on its promises and carve out a chunk of the market. There are a couple of caveats for insuring with the new provider. In Manitoba, producers must have already bought at least $200 per acre in hail insurance from the Manitoba Agricultural Services Corp. before it can buy from AG Direct. In Alberta, $150 an acre is required from the Agriculture Financial Services Corp. Any such requirement is yet to be determined in Saskatchewan, but AG Direct is hoping for clarity in the near future. As well, AG Direct Hail will limit the number of applicants in each township to manage its risk. This isn’t

unusual. Many private companies also have maximum liabilities per township. Ag Direct’s coverage in the first year will be capped at $200 an acre. Lowe has put together an aggressive town hall meeting schedule in Manitoba and Alberta in March to explain his product directly to interested producers. Meetings will be set up in Saskatchewan as soon as all the insurance requirements are ironed out. AG Direct will post its rates around May 1, and producers will be able to see for themselves whether the promised savings are real. Producers who leave their contact information on the website will receive notification as soon as rates are posted. Competition and alternatives are always welcome, but to capture business, the company will need to demonstrate the savings that are being promised.

hatever you were doing on Thursday, Feb. 20, I am going to bet you dropped it and watched the Canadian women’s curling team or the women’s hockey team, or both, slide to glory. Standing in The Western Producer newsroom, surrounded by co-workers while the women’s hockey team scored the winning goal in overtime, I was struck by this overwhelming sense that everyone in the country was doing the same thing. All of us were biting our nails, pacing the floor, pulling out our hair. And finally, we threw our arms in the air, cheering. It reminded me so much of that time at school, as a kid who really didn’t understand what was going on, when all of us gathered around a tiny, ancient black and white TV. It was raised on a stand so we short people could see it. It was Canada versus Russia. The words crackled out: “He shoots. He scores. Henderson.” Who the heck was Henderson, I wondered. Only a national hero, it turned out. What was going on? Only a defining moment of my life, when my schoolmates and I, unknowingly and together, witnessed a historic event. These Olympics have yielded many more of those moments, which all of us share, wherever we are: east, west, urban, rural, at work, at play. And we have, to some extent, paid for these nationally binding m o m e nt s. Sp o r t s f u n d i n g ha s improved dramatically over the last 15 years, and we are reaping the results in gold, silver, bronze, personal bests and next champions. I’m OK with that. It has always been a frustrating element of our nationhood that this country spans such a vast tract of geography. We are farflung, ethnically diverse, split on politics, divided in understanding and economically uneven. It’s amazing we’re still together. So when we can cheer for Kaetlyn Osmond of Marystown, N.L., population 5,500, and Hayley Wickenheiser of Shaunavon, Sask., population 1,700, and Paige Lawrence and Rudi Swiegers of Kennedy, Sask., and Virden, Man., and everyone in between, there is that powerful feeling that, together, we really do rock. So let’s keep those rinks flooded, and community centres open, and those dreams alive. Sports are at the core of our communities; they bring us together at the micro level. Then, someday, they yield that macro, Go Canada feeling. There is nothing else like it.

was shameful. This incident reveals an administration more committed to shrinking government than in compassion or indeed using common sense — another example of the Harper regime swinging an ideological wrecking ball first and trying to manage the destruction later. In a recent email, Conservative MP David Anderson claimed: “The closing of nine Veterans Affairs offices across Canada allows us to provide greater support for veterans by utilizing every Service Canada Centre across Canada, which numbers around 650 offices.” Has Mr. Anderson been in one of these crowded offices with its overworked staff lately? It will be, “take a

number and get in line Gramps; there are a couple of dozen passport applications to take care of first.” And what about the trained and knowledgeable staff being lost? David Anderson seems a nice guy, so one wonders how he and other Conservative backbenchers really feel when asked to mouth the condescending government line that the Public Service Alliance of Canada “ is manipulating our veterans.” Don’t insult our intelligence. Veterans are survivors who aren’t about to be manipulated by PSAC, the government or anyone else. At Dieppe and Juno Beach, in Korea and in Afghanistan, we asked our soldiers to put their lives on the line. It is Canadians’ understanding that

when they need it, we will do for veterans as they have done for us. Accept nothing less from your MP. Doug Bone, Elrose, Sask.

STOP BILL C-18 To the Editor: I have just received my 2014 Saskatchewan Seed Guide. I have counted approximately 70 different wheat varieties and approximately 24 different barley varieties that are mostly plant breeders’ rights protected, which really means farmers have to pay more….

PRIVATIZING NO SOLUTION To the Editor: (There has been) recent hype over the Saskatchewan Transportation Corp. losing money, the increase in cost of operation and now talk of privatization — like privatization is the magic solution to everything. Privatization is not the solution to anything as far as I’m concerned. (Saskatchewan premier) Brad Wall has pretty much sold us down the river and pats himself on the back. I’m surprised how many don’t know the difference between a crown, or commission, and a corporation. The mandate of one is to provide a service and create jobs, albeit with subsidies. The mandate of the other is to screw it up so to make the most profit possible for themselves and the banks who have the holdings. I use the STC four or five times a year, but even if I didn’t, I like to know it’s there…. Here is one example: I left my truck at Kramer Auctions on Highway 16 because I drove a tractor home. My wife doesn’t drive so I rode my bike to the highway here and took the bus right to Kramer’s via Saskatoon. Perfect. The recent cost of $10 million included expansion, new buses and drivers. I‘d guess it should be less next year, but even if it isn’t, $10 million is not a lot for a top -rate transit system in a growing province. I worked for a transit system that cost several billion per year, paid for by the city (of ) Toronto and the province. Just our electric power bill alone is $20 million. So I say leave the STC alone and let’s use it more. It’s there for all of us. Ross Hingston, Landis, Sask.

SHAMEFUL BEHAVIOUR To the Editor: With recent suicides of Canadian military people, and 2014 being the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War and the 70th anniversary of Canada’s D-Day landing, if ever there was a time the (prime minister Stephen) Harper government should be recognizing the sacrifices of our veterans by providing them with necessary support, this is it.

Why in the world do producers need so many costly private varieties when we as producers only seed one or two varieties at a time? What is wrong with so-called farm groups that lobby against democratic producer organizations and push insane farm policy on behalf of seed companies? Why are groups like this out to destroy the publicly owned varieties that we have now? These varieties were very common and are slowly being deregistered and replaced with PBR varieties, which farmers will have to pay royalties on. If (agriculture minister Gerry) Ritz gets Bill C-18 passed, it will put producers under the authority of the UPOV 91 treaty.

OPINION When that happens, if producers do buy their PBR seed, not only will they pay a big price when they buy the seed but the seed companies are given rights to collect royalties on the crops that farmers want to sell that are grown from that seed. These end point royalties could amount to $1 to $4 per tonne for the next 20 years on the grain that is harvested. And there is no guarantee that the seed companies will spend these huge windfalls on new development or new varieties. I will bet that most of that money will go to their shareholders…. This insane Bill C-18 has to be stopped by producers. They cannot sit idly by anymore and must take action against the federal government by talking, phoning or emailing their MPs and voicing their opposition to this bill. Remember your Conservative MP will retire with a fat lifetime pension

while we and our grandchildren will go on paying for UPOV 91 forever. Eric Sagan, Melville, Sask.

CREATE HEALTHY SOIL To the Editor: The existence of herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and genetic engineering reflect a failing agriculture industry. These technologies compensate for neglected soil and plant health. Weeds are nature’s forgiveness to cover and repair abused soil. Fungi and insects do not compete with animals or humans for food. Fungi and insects return to the nutrient cycle organic materials that will not nutritionally maintain an animal or human.

Disease and insects will not harm healthy plants. Genetic engineering is prolonging an unsustainable agricultural system’s inevitable demise. The green revolution’s focus on plant production has neglected the health of the soil, causing infestations of weeds, disease and insects and the growth of the input industry. Green revolution technologies allow low quality food to be salvaged and fed to animals and humans, preventing starvation, while diminishing trans-generational health. When facing weeds, insects and disease, understand it is a failure of creating a healthy soil environment, not a deficiency of pesticide applications. Producers are killing the messenger, so to speak, by following the recommendations of the input industry. Garrett Osborn, Big Beaver, Sask.

wanted to tax churches because they thought them ineffective, suddenly saw their merit in working with the community and declared them an essential service. The same recognition was given when the churches of Slave Lake, Alta., offered on-going help in that community’s 2011 disaster. Many local residents want to help when tragedy strikes a community. However, such offers are usually rejected if arrangements haven’t been made with the Emergency Measures Organization (EMO). First responders are tightly organized. They have been trained and have rehearsed their procedures. Efficient, timely actions are mandatory in the face of floods, fires, toxic chemical explosions and other tragic situations so that physical damage can be minimized. People’s lives are also affected, often over extended periods of time. It’s important to co-ordinate effective people-caring teams with the emergency operations that already exist. Churches and local organizations have numerous resources to offer in smaller communities when crisis strikes and could be considered essential service providers by the local EMO. However, consideration must first be given to what is involved and how to respond before emergency situations arise. Circle-M (Centre for Rural Community Learning and Ministry) will be holding crisis intervention training webinars this spring. Churches, EMOs and other organizations are invited to participate in these informative conversations. The webinars are not intended to provide certified disaster relief trainings for participants. Instead, they are meant to facilitate conversation in the local community so that church, community and emergency organizations can more readily work together. Thank you to the Calgary Foundation and the Lutheran Education and Benevolent Society (Calgary) for their funding support in this important venture. Much can be done when we prepare ourselves to work together. For further information, visit www. or phone 306-966-7864. Get your community and EMO involved.

Chile and mustard offer good mix Variety development | Officials take Canadian mustard to Chile to help improve crop BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Canadian officials are using wintertime nurseries in Chile to speed the development of new mustard varieties. | FILE PHOTO

Canadian mustard has been sent south for the winter to speed the development of new varieties. Canadian plant breeders have long made use of southern nurseries, but mustard remains a relatively new project in Chile, where Daryl Males has been taking Canadian mustard seed for three years. The Canadian mustard industry has set a goal of maintaining mustard yields equal to 85 percent of canola,

which is an aggressive target for a crop that has traditionally received minimal funding and yield gains. Breeding efforts are funded by industry partners and Growing Forward 2 and conducted by a small number of private and public officials. The introduction of synthetic hybrid varieties and improved agronomy has led officials to believe that the target is attainable, with yield gains of 20 to 25 percent expected soon. Variety development is a lengthy process, and the introduction of a second growing season in Chile is

designed to reduce that time. “If you can deliver in five years, like the canolas have before with new varieties, … instead of 10 or 12, that’s a huge gain in pushing things into the marketplace faster and turning over innovation at an ever increasing speed, which is what we’re now asking for in mustards,” said Males, who works in breeding and variety development with Agrisoma, which contracts acres of the industrial mustard carinata. Males has a lengthy career in developing crop varieties and working in Chile. He also works with condiment mustard

varieties with Mustard 21 Canada, which manages research funding from government and industry. Males said 20 acres of Canadian mustard were seeded in Chilean nurseries this year, covering commercial and condiment seed. He said they work with operators in the Temuco area, which most closely resembles Western Canada. “We don’t need huge acres unless we start doing foundation or certified production down there,” he said. Cheaper labour, as well as steady temperatures between 16 and 23 C, make the country an ideal area to reliably replicate seed and make varietal selections.

As we bring these new mustards to market, we will save four to five years in getting them to producers’ hands. DARYL MALES AGRISOMA

Your crops will eat this stuff up.

“As we bring these new mustards to market, we will save four to five years in getting them to producers’ hands,” he said. Plots can be seeded between August and December and seed returned to Canada for the spring. “That’s the No. 1 reason you choose Chile, because of those windows at the front end and the back end,” said Males. “I’ve tried Australia, New Zealand, Arizona, California, and you could theoretically do South Africa and some other places, but that window of opportunity for seeding and for harvest doesn’t exist anywhere else.” Males said competition for the best land and growers can be stiff in Chile from other crops such as canola and soybeans, as well as from cash crops, fruits and vegetables. “The prices go up, but so does the learning curve and the management skills they’re applying to our crops,” said Males. “So it’s been a pretty fair trade off, I would have to say, for improved delivery of services and crops to us and how our expectations are able to rise for them.… Herbicide resistant types of mustards, they’re starting to become a pretty important partner as we go down that road.”

Soil test knowledge key to higher yields Making the most of data | Growers cannot maximize yields without a better understanding of soil nutrients BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Learning how to read a soil test is critical for farmers who want to significantly increase crop yields, says a South Dakota grower. “I challenge you this winter, learn how to read this thing,” Brian Hefty of Baltic said Feb. 18 at the CropConnect conference in Winnipeg as he pointed to a soil analysis report from his PowerPoint presentation. “Spend an afternoon at it…. This is a $1,000 an hour job.” Hefty and his brother, Darren, host a daily radio show on Sirius XM called Ag PhD, where they share information on agronomics, farm profitability and environmental stewardship. The Heftys have grown 300 bushel per acre corn and their soybeans regularly top 70 bu. per acre. Hefty said only a small percentage of producers understand soil test data, and fewer recognize that it is vital information for the pursuit of higher yields. For example, he said the crop cannot efficiently use fertilizer applied to the soil if pH levels are too low or too high. “Phosphorus is a good example,” he said, pointing to a chart showing how phosphorus availability declines as soil pH rises. “You might get (a) recommendation from your agronomist and he says, ‘go put a bunch of phosphorus out there’…. So you figure, go broadcast that phosphorus out there and bam, now we’re in good shape. But the problem is, you might have 50, 60, 70 percent of (it) tied up…. The more you can get your soil pH to about neutral, which is about seven, the better off you are.” Percent base saturation, which is the proportion of potassium, magnesium, calcium, hydrogen and sodium to each other, is also worth considering. He said farmers in the Red River Valley are frequently told their soil has sufficient potassium so it’s unnecessary to apply the nutrient. “(But) in southern Canada and in the Midwest, we’ve got really high levels of magnesium in the soil. We have really high levels of calcium in the soil,” he said. “We have pretty good levels of potassium, but it’s not in balance with our magnesium and calcium.” Hefty said potassium is critical because a deficiency will cause crop lodging. “If you’ve ever had a crop fall over, I don’t care if it’s wheat, corn, soybeans, canola … chances are it’s a potassium issue.” Terry Buss, a Manitoba Agriculture farm production adviser in Beausejour, said potassium and phosphorus deficiencies in eastern Manitoba have increased grower interest in soil tests and analysis. He said producers in the region, particularly those on tight soybean rotations, haven’t applied sufficient quantities of those nutrients, which has led to a deficit. Some soybean growers have recognized their mistake and are responding to the nutrient shortage, Buss added.

“This fall, given the large crops we had, I’ve seen more interest in soil tests than I’ve seen in a long time,” he said. “More people are rushing to figure out, ‘how do I return this fertility (because) I’ve emptied the bank.’ ” Rigas Karamanos, a senior agronomist with Koch Fertilizer Canada, agreed that soil tests are essential to understand fertility. However, growers must realize that all soil tests are not created equal. “Your soil test is an inventory. You get these numbers, now what the

You can send (soil) to five different labs and get five different answers. Now what? RIGAS KARAMANOS AGRONOMIST

heck do they mean?” he said. “You can send (soil) to five different labs and get five different answers. Now what?”

In a 2005 paper, Karamanos said there are 11 ways to determine soil pH, multiple methods to assess electrical conductivity and several approaches to calculate soil organic matter. “(As well), there is a common misconception that soil test levels represent ‘plant available’ nutrients,” he said. “Soil testing is searching for nutrient forms that are ‘potentially’ available to plant roots. Therefore, soil tests … become meaningful only after they are calibrated against crop yields.”

Hefty emphasized soil testing and analysis in his presentation, but he said it represents one piece of the puzzle when it comes to attaining higher yields. If a grower wants to double yields, for instance, it comes down to commitment. “Most people are going to say, ‘I don’t know if that (doubling yields) is even possible,’ and they limit themselves right away,” Hefty said. “It’s absolutely possible…. It’s attention to detail … and the diligence to stay with it year after year.”

Other fungicides help protect yield potential. This increases it.

There are a lot of decisions to make when it comes to getting the most out of your crop. But there’s only one fungicide that goes above and beyond controlling disease in canola by helping increase yield potential. We’re talking, of course, about Headline® fungicide. Not only does it help control yield-robbing diseases like blackleg, it also delivers the unique, proven benefits* that we call AgCelence®. The evidence?

Weed destruction at harvest may prove viable on Prairies Fight herbicide resistance | The Harrington Seed Destructor will be tested this spring BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

VANCOUVER — In 2012, only a fraction of experts believed that North American farmers would buy into weed seed destruction at harvest. Two years later, many Canadian and American weed scientists are touting the technology as a realistic method to fight herbicide resistant weeds. “In terms of the States and proba-

bly North America in general… within the next 10 years I really think this is the future of weed control,” University of Arkansas weed scientist Jason Norsworthy said at the Weed Science Society of America conference held in Vancouver Feb. 3-6. “ That is, having a Harrington Seed Destructor integrated into the combine.” For several years, Australian weed scientists have promoted the value of destroying weed seeds at harvest

through burning windrows, collecting seeds and straw in chaff carts and using a Harrington Seed Destructor, which is a portable mill towed behind the combine to pulverize weed seeds. Regardless of the approach, the same concept applies: eradicating weed seeds at harvest reduces subsequent weed populations and the probability of genetic variations that are resistant to herbicides. Skeptics of weed seed destruction

Few North American farmers have bought into the idea of weed seed destruction at harvest time, but new technology like the Harrington Seed Destructor is prompting some farmers to have another look. | FILE PHOTO have said farmers don’t have the time or willingness to collect and burn straw and weed seeds at harvest time. As well, they have argued that the practice wouldn’t work in North America because target weeds likely dropped their seeds before harvest.

“If they’re not retaining the seed, obviously this isn’t a tool we’re going to be able to use,” Norsworthy said. To answer that question, Norsworthy and his colleagues studied soybean fields in the southern and midwestern United States in 2012 and 2013. Norsworthy determined that Palmer amaranth and waterhemp, two weeds that are resistant to multiple herbicides, retained nearly all of their seeds at soybean maturity. “It blew me away at first,” he said. “In 2012, I said this can’t be for real. We went back and did it again in 2013…. We’re getting, on average, about 99.8 percent of the seeds (Palmer amaranth) retained.” Results for waterhemp were similar. Testing in multiple states showed the weed held onto almost every seed. “About 99.8 to 99.9 percent of that seed is being retained, so yes, it is going through the combine … and we see this through vast geographies,” he said. Neil Harker, an Agriculture Canada weed scientist in Lacombe, Alta., said weed seed destruction at harvest could be a significant tool in the battle against herbicide resistance. Agriculture Canada will soon buy a Harrington Seed Destructor, which researchers plan to use in Eastern Canada this fall. “This year we’ll look at some seed retention experiments to see which weeds have the most potential to be reduced by seed destruction,” Harker said. “Next year we’ll have the seed destructor out on farms in Western Canada…. For me, it’s probably the most exciting thing we’re doing over the next few years…. This has tremendous potential for some weeds, to take a good shot at weeds without applying selection pressure to our most valuable herbicide tools.” Weed seed destruction might be feasible in Western Australia, but Michael Owen, a weed scientist from Iowa State University, remains skeptical about chaff carts, weed seed destructors or anything else towed behind a combine in the U.S. Midwest. “I’m not overly optimistic,” he said. “For one thing, I don’t think it would work in corn particularly well, because of the residue…. Also, the scale that we have and the yields that we get, they (farmers) are not going to waste a lot of time dealing with another piece of equipment.” As for windrow burning, Owen said Iowa farmers don’t have time at harvest for such a practice. Norsworthy said it could be a decade before a combine manufacturer builds a harvester with a Harrington Seed Destructor incorporated into it, which means farmers need to adopt transition methods in the interim. “I’d like us (weed scientists) to start demonstrating the value of the chaff cart,” he said. “So when (farmers) see the Harrington Seed Destructor, it’s something that they readily buy into.”




HERBICIDE RESISTANT WEEDS A late-summer survey of herbicide resistant weeds was conducted in Alberta in 2007, Manitoba in 2008 and Saskatchewan in 2009, totalling 1,000 randomly selected annually cropped fields. In addition, researchers screened 1,091 weed seed samples (each sample from one field) submitted by prairie growers between 2007 and 2011. • Of 677 fields where wild oats samples were collected, 298, or 44 percent, had a herbicide resistant type. • Group 1 (acetyl CoA carboxylase inhibitor) resistant wild oats was confirmed in 275 fields (41 percent), up from 15 percent in previous baseline surveys (2001 to 2003). • Group 2 (acetolactate synthase) resistant wild oats was found in 12 percent of fields (vs. eight percent in 2001 to 2003). • Group 8 (triallate, difenzoquat) resistant wild oats was identified in eight percent of fields (not tested in 2001 to 2003). • Group 1 resistant green foxtail was found in 27 percent of 209 fields sampled for the weed (vs. six percent in 2001 to 2003). • Group 2 resistant spiny sowthistle was confirmed in all Alberta fields sampled (vs. 67 percent in 2001). • Common chickweed was found mainly in Alberta in 40 percent of fields (vs. 17 percent in 2001). • Group 2 resistant weeds not previously detected in the baseline surveys included false cleavers, mainly in Alberta (17 percent of fields), and Saskatchewan (21 percent), Powell amaranth in Manitoba (16 percent), wild mustard (three fields in

Saskatchewan and Manitoba), and wild buckwheat (one field in Alberta). • No sampled weed populations across the Prairies were found to be resistant to herbicides from Group 4 (synthetic auxins), Group 9 (glyphosate), or Group 10 (glufosinate). (Glyphosate resistant kochia was found in Alberta in 2011.) • Based on the proportion of total field area at each site infested with herbicide resistant weeds, it is estimated that 7.7 million acres (29 percent of annually cropped land) are infested with herbicide resistant weeds, an eight-fold increase from 2001 to 2003. • Of 816 cases of resistant wild oats identified from submitted samples, 69 percent were Group 1, 15 percent Group 2, and 16 percent Group 1 and 2-HR. • There were 10 populations of Group 1 resistant green foxtail in Saskatchewan or Manitoba and six populations of Group 1 resistant Persian darnel in southern Alberta and Saskatchewan. Various Group 2 resistant broadleaf weeds were identified, including 17 wild mustard populations mainly from Saskatchewan and 39 cleavers populations across the three prairie provinces.

CN plans $2.1 billion in rail spending to improve service Infrastructure, equipment and facilities | The railway plans to spend $300 million on 45 high horsepower locomotives BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Canadian National Railway plans to spend more than $2.1 billion this year on rail network upgrades and equipment, says company president Claude Mongeau. He said the spending will improve safety, efficiency and service to rail shippers. Mongeau announced Feb. 19 that the company will spend $1.2 billion on track infrastructure, $300 million on locomotives and equipment and $600 million on new facilities,

including transloading terminals, distribution centers and the completion of its Calgary Logistics Park project. The railway will acquire an additional 45 new high horsepower locomotives this year, augmenting the 44 new locomotives and 37 secondhand high horsepower units that were acquired last year, the company said. CN did not say how much of this year’s capital expenditure budget would be spent in Canada. “Investments in our network and distribution capability, the acquisi-

tion of new locomotives and equipment and the enhancement of information systems and technology will help support our agenda of operational and service excellence,” Mongeau said in a Feb. 19 news release. “They will help us achieve our goal of becoming a true supply chain enabler and help our customers compete better in their markets. They will also position us to take advantage of business opportunities in intermodal, energy and other resource and manufacturing markets.” CN’s capital investment program

totalled approximately $2 billion last year. About $100 million of that was invested in CN’s Edmonton-to-Winnipeg corridor to increase rail capacity and support movement of higher volumes of grain and other commodities. In 2014, CN’s $1.2 billion investment in track infrastructure will result in additional improvements to the productivity and fluidity of the network, the company said. The track infrastructure investment will pay for the replacement of rail, ties and other track materials, as

well as bridge improvements and branch line upgrades. It will also include funds for strategic initiatives and additional track improvements in Western and Eastern Canada, as well as the United States. The company will also take steps to enhance its system-wide flaw detection capabilities. CN will also complete construction of two training facilities this year: one in Winnipeg and the other in suburban Chicago. They are expected to train new employees and strengthen CN’s safety record.


Supplies tight as forages gain interest BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

INNISFAIL, Alta. — The joke in Kevin Shaw’s house is that he needs to bring his business cards and price lists to the curling rink because of the increased interest in forage seed. The Pickseed salesperson said the drop in cereal and oilseed prices has encouraged producers to take a second look at forage seed. “It’s shaping up to be a busy year for forage,” Shaw told producers at a recent Alberta Forage and Industry Network meeting. He said supplies may be tight because of an average 2013 seed crop combined with increased interest in the crop. “The prices are inching up,” said Shaw. “Sales are fairly brisk. There is a lot more interest this year. There are far more orders than previous years.” Marginal acres will be the first to go back into forages, he added. Alfalfa, with its processing plant contracts, is the most stable forage and less likely to be taken out of production by high cereal and oilseed crops. However, Shaw said bromegrass and fescue crops are worked under pretty quickly when a betterpriced crop appears. He said individual farmers plan to seed 120, 160 or even 200 acres back into forages rather than just a small corner of the field. Shaw doesn’t believe forage seed will be impossible to get, but finding the right varieties may prove challenging. Calvin Yoder with Alberta Agriculture in Spirit River said more grass will be seeded this spring in Alberta’s Peace River region, which is an important grass growing region. “We’ll see a few more acres. There is some interest,” said Yoder. “Cattle numbers still pretty low.” He said the number of seed production acres will increase as producers rejuvenate their fields. Shaw said the increased interest in growing timothy hay for export forced his company to go searching for seed. Supplies of native grass seed should meet demand, but he warned that a couple of large pipeline projects could suck down the supply.

Study tackles food waste issue SHARON KIRKPATRICK

Reasons varied | Better understanding needed of what households throw away




Food insecurity a growing concern BY MELANIE EPP FREELANCE WRITER

GUELPH, Ont. — One in eight households experienced food insecurity in Canada in 2012, a University of Waterloo researcher told a National Food Security Forum in Guelph, Ont. Sharon Kirkpatrick, an assistant professor in the School of Public Health and Health Systems, said it’s a problem getting worse, not better. Food security is defined as “access by all people at all times to enough food for an active and healthy life.” “Household food insecurity, then, is the limited or uncertain ability to acquire enough food to meet all members of the household’s needs and this is, again, because of insufficient financial resources,” said Kirkpatrick. Researchers used the Household Food Security Survey Module to evaluate food insecurity across the country, with responses ranging from worrying about not having enough food to relying on low cost foods to going a whole day without eating. Results show that six percent of Canadians are moderately food insecure, 4.1 percent are marginally insecure and 2.6 percent are severely insecure. One in six of those is a child. The most food insecure region in Canada is Nunavut, where 45.2 percent struggle to put food on the plate. “Household food insecurity is a prevalent problem in Canada,” Kirkpatrick said at the Feb. 19-20 event. “It really is a potent indicator of vulnerability, poor nutritional health and to poor overall health and well-being. And what’s really worrisome is that it’s a risk factor for poor physical health and mental health in children later on in their lives.” Canada has responded with food banks, meal programs and community gardens but there have been few evaluations conducted to see if they make an impact. “The evaluations that we do have really don’t quantify the effects on food insecurity … this is not a longterm solution to a poverty problem and they really don’t have the capacity to address the underlying issue here,” Kirkpatrick said. Changes that could better address food insecurity include increasing social assistance rates and employment insurance initiatives and lowering housing costs, she said.


GUELPH, Ont. — A University of Guelph study looked at household garbage to determine not only what is thrown out, but why. Michael von Massow of the university’s department of hospitality, food and tourism management presented his team’s findings at the National Food Security Forum in Guelph, Ont. last week. Residents said that their decisions to discard food were based on appearance, smell, best before dates and taste. Some said it had been in the fridge too long or they didn’t like it. “The more different criteria you used, the more likely you were to throw more out,” said von Massow.


Most participants said they considered food waste a societal problem, he said. Von Massow said talking about the environmental impacts of food waste is not resonating with Canadians. “And thinking about the value of food probably becomes a better message for reducing waste than just the environmental and just the economic one,” he said. People feel bad about wasting food, said von Massow. “What they don’t understand is what they’re throwing out and what we can do to reduce it,” he said. Waste collected from five residences was divided into categories: fruits and vegetables, meat and fish, dairy and eggs, cereals, grains and pasta and other food waste. On average, they found that each home produced about 0.5 kilograms of garbage per day. More than 50 percent (0.27 kg) fell into the fruit and vegetable categor y. While some of that was unavoidable, such as peels and cores, much of it was untouched and still intact. In another study, von Massow collected and weighed garbage bags from residential homes where residents divided trash into one of three bags: green for compost, blue for recyclables and clear for the rest. On average, each home produced



31.2 kg of garbage per week. Of that, 7.1 kg was in clear bags, 11.6 kg was in blue bags and 12.5 kg was found in green bags. The researchers also asked residents about food waste, dividing participants into four categories. Some fell under the waste aware category. “They’re a little more sophisticated in their thinking, which means they use fewer criteria in deciding what to throw out,” said von Massow. Those who fell into the “food aware” category showed an appre-

ciation or concern for food. They tend to have special diets, compost more and read nutrition labels. Von Massow found a positive correlation between food awareness and waste production, with those who are food aware producing less waste. “The more we care about what we are eating, the less likely we are to throw it out,” he said. Waste is less of a concern to those who fall into the final two categories, convenience driven and the busy family.

Von Massow said they may be aware but don’t know how to do it better. “We’re starting to understand food waste better, and it’s important, frankly, for us to understand it at the granule level,” he said. “If we want to start doing things about it, we need to understand how much we’re throwing out, but also what we’re throwing out and why we’re throwing it out.” Von Massow plans to continue his research on food waste behaviour in 2014.





Mature hen basis for easy-to-prepare economical meals TEAM RESOURCES


The chicken broth adds flavour to rice or barley


ature doesn’t mean old when it comes to chickens. Mature hens, once known as stewing hens, are older female chickens. According to Canadian chicken licensing regulations, “a mature chicken means a mature female bird of the species gallus domesticus that does not have flexible cartilage at the posterior end of the breast or keel bone, tender meat or soft skin of smooth texture (poulet adulte).”

A mature hen is the oldest commercially sold chicken, ranging in age from 10 to 18 months. Their size and age give them more fat and flavour than younger, smaller chickens. The meat requires long, slow moist cooking to tenderize it, which means the hens are perfect for stews, soups and braised dishes. The slow cooking produces rich broths and sauces. The meat can be used in numerous recipes for quick meals. Mature hens are economical although not always available. I bought a three kilogram mature hen for $2.84 per kg, which is less than $9 for the whole bird. Once cooked and deboned, there was more than one kilogram of meat and 750 millilitres of broth.


NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS Proposal submitted by the Association des producteurs de fraises et framboises du Québec pursuant to section 8 of the Farm Products Agencies Act (the Act). The Farm Products Council of Canada (FPCC) has received from the Association des producteurs de fraises et framboises du Québec a proposal to establish a Canadian Strawberry Promotion and Research Agency, to be funded by levies applied on fresh strawberry marketed domestically and imported. Copies of the Request for a Canadian Strawberry Promotion and Research Agency, General Rules of Procedure and other related documents are available from FPCC’s Web site at etc/public-hearingshome. These documents may also be requested by email at hearings-audiences, by telephone at 613-759-1165 or 1-855-611-1165, by facsimile at 613-7591566 or by postal mail at Ottawa’s Central Experimental Farm, 960 Carling Avenue, Building 59, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0C6.

Seasoning the bird liberally with herbs, garlic, onions and vegetables during the cooking process enhances the flavour of the meat and broth. 1 mature hen, 3 kg fresh or thawed 1 large onion, quartered 3 celery ribs, with leaves, cut in quarters 3 cloves garlic, chopped 1 tsp. salt 5 mL 1 tsp. sage or savoury 5 mL 1 tbsp. parsley 15 mL 1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper 2 mL 4 c. water 1L

Rinse the hen, remove the neck and giblets and discard. Place in large dutch oven, a large pot or kettle with a tight fitting lid and place the chicken breast-side up. Place half of the vegetables and herbs in the body cavity and the rest around the bird in the pot. Add the water. Place on stove, heat water to boiling and then cover and turn heat down to medium. Simmer for three hours and then turn chicken over so breast is in the liquid. Add more water if needed. Continue cooking three more hours until meat flakes and pulls off the bone easily. Turn off heat and allow to cool for half an hour. Remove the skin and pull the meat from the bones. This is easier to do while the meat is still warm. The broth will have congealed around the meat if it is cold, which makes the deboning process more difficult. Place the meat in a separate container. When all of the meat is removed from the back, legs, thighs and wings, pull bones off the breast and remove the breast meat. Strain the broth into a separate container, rinse the bones and skin with a cup of water, add this water to the broth and discard the bones and skin. Refrigerate meat and broth overnight. Remove the fat from the top of the broth and discard the fat. Separate the large breast pieces from the smaller pieces of meat. The breast meat can be sliced for

sandwiches. Cube the meat for adding to a pizza, fried rice or stir-fry, or cut in thin strips for use in summer rolls or tacos. The smaller and darker pieces of meat are best chopped and used in soups, stews, chicken pies or a pasta sauce where their sizes are less noticeable. Use the chicken broth as the basis of soups or stews or add to chicken dishes that call for broth. It can also be used for cooking rice or barley. Any of the chicken or broth that will not be used immediately should be packaged in recipe-size portions and frozen in containers or freezer bags. Label as to the contents, amount and date. This will provide the basis for quickly prepared future meals. Use within two months for best flavour and texture. The chicken can be cooked in a slow cooker on high for three hours. Turn breast side down and turn the heat to low and cook an additional four to six hours until the meat flakes and pulls off the bones.

many for farm labourers Canada. However, it is his connection with his homeland that has kept his Saskatchewan grain farm thriving. Michaelsen has used his contacts to attract workers to help him deal with a labour shortage that is plaguing southeastern Saskatchewan. Michaelsen and his parents, Otto and Christiane, have been using their ties in Germany to find immigrant labourers for their grain farm as well as for neighbours in the Lampman area. “Our first worker was a friend of mine who had a farm with his parents in Germany and he offered to come over and help for a season, just for the experience,” said Michaelsen. That first immigrant worker application in 2008 grew to 20 or 30 applications a year as he became an expert at securing student and summer labourers. They usually come to Canada in two groups: one from April to October and a second group of university students during the school break from July to mid-October. The Michaelsens agree they could not have expanded their grain operation to its current size of 9,000 acres without the help of international workers from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The state of the labour market when Michaelsen immigrated in 2007, followed by his parents in 2008, meant that farm workers were nearly impossible to find. “The oilfield in this area draws people away because the money is better and the work schedule is better,” Michaelsen said. He said European university students and farm hands are eager to work in Canada because the jobs pay up to three times the hourly rate in Europe and working in Canada offers a unique agricultural experience. The Michaelsens pay their employees $2,200 a month and supply room and board, a cellphone and use of a vehicle. They will often pay for flights as well. Michaelsen takes care of the immigration paperwork for his neighbours for free. In exchange, the neighbours share workers with the Michaelsens. Michaelsen’s mother said the giveand-take atmosphere in Canada is something the family had to get used to when they immigrated. “In Germany, you would never do that,” she said. “In Canada, we find people more welcoming and friendly, and neighbours are happy to work together and help each other out.” The Michaelsens moved to Canada in response to a land shortage in Germany, which resulted in them not being able to expand their dairy herd beyond 300 head. They intensively shopped for land in Canada and considered 68 farms, eventually deciding that the Lampman area offered the best opportunity for farm expansion. “In 2007, we bought 3,000 acres,” Michaelsen said. “The package included the buildings and the equipment.” The farmer he bought from provided advice, and his hired man stayed on for a year to help with the transition. The Michaelsens have moved a double apartment trailer onto their yard now that immigrant workers have become an integral part of the operation. It consists of living space

for four workers, complete with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and two living rooms. Students are easy to find because word of mouth creates more than enough applications for the 20 to 30 positions filled in the area each season. Some of the workers are university students who need to complete a sixmonth practicum on a working farm. Michaelsen can grant the students their practicum certificates because he has his masters in agriculture degree from the University of Berlin. The only problem is that provincial legislation has made it more difficult to bring immigrant workers into

Saskatchewan. “Three years ago, the visa application was one page and now it’s a 30-page application and you have to go through a lot of stages, so it makes it really difficult,” he said. Michaelsen intends to continue using foreign workers, and he believes demand in the area will increase. Lampman mixed farmer Mark Walter hopes the Michaelsens will be able to continue obtaining work visas. He employs two German workers and regularly hires one or two more students during seeding and harvest. He said he hates to even think about what it would be like without the work

Ole Michaelsen, centre, and his parents, Otto and Christiane, say provincial legislation is making it more difficult to bring in immigrant workers. the Michaelsens do to attract European labourers. “It would be a struggle, that’s for sure,” he said. “We’d have to try to get

older farmers, I guess, because it’s really hard down here in the southeast as the oil field draws away so many young people.”

* Jan. 1 to Feb. 15 only


Grain transportation constraints have become the top issue for western Canadian farmers this year. The railways say the main cause of the problem is unusually cold weather, but others allege that increased rail movement of crude oil is also a factor. As politicians and farmers hold meetings to try to get to the bottom of the disaster, producers wait for calls to deliver, country elevators remain plugged and ships at the West Coast collect demurrage waiting to load. This second part of Western Producer reporter Brian Cross’s multi-week transportation special report looks at how grain companies are coping with the problem.

Source: Statistics Canada | WP GRAPHIC


ith spring fast approaching and a mountain of undelivered grain still weighing heavily on markets, calls for a longterm solution to Western Canada’s lingering grain transportation problems are growing louder. Last week, a delegation of Saskatchewan cabinet ministers met with grain company executives in Winnipeg to discuss factors that have fuelled a growing sense of frustration among farmers, shippers and end users of Canadian grain. Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall assembled the delegation earlier this month, suggesting delays in moving western Canadian grain are harming Canada’s reputation as a reliable

supplier of agricultural products throughout the world. Farm organizations across the West are also demanding solutions. Producers attending a recent grain transportation symposium hosted by the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan heard that carryout stocks from the 2013-14 crop year could easily land in the 25 million tonne range. At an average value of $275 per tonne, that would represent an unmarketed asset valued at nearly $7 billion. A carryout that large, combined with an average-sized crop this year, would put additional strain on domestic grain prices and would almost certainly guarantee that huge

volumes of grain will be stored on prairie farms again next winter. Concern is also peaking among domestic processors, specialty crop shippers and grain companies whose sales programs are now weeks, if not months, behind schedule. “Currently, we’re running at least four weeks behind,” Viterra president Kyle Jeworski said earlier this month. “That’s causing a lot of delays in our vessel execution so obviously there are customer challenges.” Added Keith Bruch, vice-president of operations at Paterson Global Foods: “The rail industry in grain in Canada is in a mess.… We are well behind on our shipping programs. We’re only getting about 20 percent of

the cars that we request in the week that we request them. We’ve got shipping orders that are two months old and we’ve got some elevators that haven’t seen a train in two months…. Like all companies, we’ve got customers, globally, who are very upset, and it’s not good for Western Canada.” It’s difficult to measure the costs associated with the backlog, but numbers from the Western Grain Elevators Association provide perspective. According to the WGEA, the difference between the number of rail cars requested and the number of rail cars spotted at country locations surpassed 55,000 cars as of last week. The backlog equates to five million tonnes of prairie grain that have been sold to overseas buyers but have yet to be delivered. Canada’s railway companies say the backlog is largely the result of extremely cold weather that began in December and has persisted through most of January and February. Canadian National Railway spokesperson Mark Hallman said the volume of grain moved during the first four months of the 2013-14 crop year was well above the five-year average.

CN expects grain traffic in Western Canada to return to above-average levels as spring approaches. Meanwhile, Quorum Corp. pegged grain stocks in storage at country elevators across the West at more than 3.5 million tonnes in mid-February. “(That is) the absolute limit for the system’s working capacity,” the WGEA said. Demurrage fees and contract extension penalties are also mounting. As of last week, more than 50 ships were waiting at west coast port locations to be loaded with Canadian grain. Bruch said demurrage charges averaging $16,000 per day are accruing on most, if not, all of those vessels, many of which will wait four to six weeks to be loaded. Based on those figures, daily demurrage costs are assumed to be costing the industry $600,000 per day or more. “Contract extension and default penalties are huge,” added Bruch. “In the multimillions.” Bruch and Jeworski rejected suggestions that logistical problems and lack of co-ordination at port facilities were contributing to loading delays at Vancouver. WGEA executive director Wade Sobkowich said there is significant unused port unload capacity in Vancouver, Prince Rupert and Thunder Bay. Jeworski offered a similar view, suggesting that investments in Viterra’s grain collection facilities, both

inland and at port, are not being used to their full potential. “We’re sitting with considerable space right now at port position,” said Jeworski. “(At port,) we have not been in a plugged situation once this entire crop year and that’s with our directly owned port facilities and our joint ventures, so that’s six port facilities…. We’ve invested in our country facilities and we’ve invested in our port facilities, so we believe we’ve got significant efficiencies there.… But the big challenge now is getting (grain) from Point A to Point B.” Added Bruch: “We’ve got country elevator stocks at record (high) levels … and terminal stocks at record low levels…. We’ve got boats waiting, the grain is in the elevators and farmers will deliver at any opportunity. The missing link is the rail.” Across the West, farmers and shippers are trying to pinpoint the factors that have contributed to the current situation. And more often than not, the movement of crude oil by rail is emerging as a key factor. Petroleum shipments at Canadian Pacific Railway increased to 161,000 carloads in 2013 from 64,000 in 2011, an increase of 251 percent over three years. And at CN, revenue from the petroleum and chemicals sector jumped by $500 million to $1.9 billion during the same period. Petroleum and chemical traffic was

CN’s second largest business segment last year, accounting for more than 20 percent of the $9.6 billion that CN earned through freight revenues. Grain was third. CN has said throughout the winter that crude oil shipments are not affecting grain movement. Instead, cold weather is the primary factor affecting grain movement, according to CN officials. The railway said it has taken various steps to mitigate the short-term effects of extremely cold weather and increase its long-term spotting capacity for western Canadian grain. “The notion that CN’s crude-by-rail business is displacing grain on the company’s rail network has no merit,” Hallman wrote in a Feb. 11 email. “CN’s crude oil car loadings in 2013 accounted for less than two percent of the company’s total freight volumes, and CN has ample network capacity in normal weather conditions to move all commodities efficiently, including grain.” Bruch said the number of grain cars that move in any given week typically exceeds the number of oil cars moved, but the proportion of railway resources used to move grain relative to oil is diminishing. “Really, what we’re seeing is a dramatically increasing movement in oil by rail, and it’s very clear that will continue to increase,” he said. “It’s really become a choice for the railways of moving oil or hauling grain,

and what we’re seeing is more and more of their efforts going into oil.” Grain is still moving to the West Coast. Elevator company officials say most grain moving to the West Coast is coming from Alberta, where haul distances are shorter and car cycle times are faster. Elevators in eastern Saskatchewan and Manitoba are receiving a disproportionately low number of hopper cars. The number of cars moving Canadian grain into U.S. markets is also well below grain industry demand. Canadian grain companies serving U.S. markets have been told that car cycle times are too long. Others say oil and gas traffic in southern corridors is simply too profitable for railway companies to forego. Major line companies are not the only ones being affected. Small processors and specialty crop exporters are also waiting for cars and losing markets. Greg Simpson, president of Simpson Seeds Inc., a specialty crop processor and exporter in Moose Jaw, Sask., said his company will lose 20 percent of its potential export sales this year because of insufficient rail service and supply chain constraints. Potential sales to overseas buyers looking for near-term deliveries are being lost because the company already has a backlog of unfilled orders. “It’s impacting us at every level,” Simpson said. “We can’t take deliveries from

growers and we can’t ship orders to overseas buyers.… We’re basically taking all new inquiries and saying that we’re not doing any new business now for at least two months … because we already have a backlog of shipments to get caught up on.” Simpson said the transportation constraints are a disincentive to further investment. “We have 100 employees here, so I pay salaries to 100 employees, whether we have hopper cars out front or not,” he said. “Right now, we’re not getting asset utilization. We’re not getting enough velocity out of our facilities, and it’s hurting us financially. As an industry, why would we want to increase production if we can’t get our product out of the Prairies?” With financial losses mounting, calls are growing for tougher railway regulations. “In our view, the government really has to decide whether … it’s acceptable to them to have the railways determine the economic priorities of Western Canada,” Bruch said.


Better than ever Next week, rail carriers offer their views on rail capacity and service and the regulatory environment.





Landowners benefit from land-for-rent websites More interest, higher price | Auction websites list land for rent, soil and cropping information and wait for bids to come in BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The bigger Canadian farms get, the wider the search for additional farmland becomes. The proprietors of two web-based land rental services say thousands of Canadian farmers are willing to take that search online. “The largest increase in traffic I’ve had is from people who’ve had land

passed to them and they’re not actively farming anymore,” said Lyndon Lisitza, who operates a Saskatchewan-based service, Renterra, which claimed top prize at the University of Saskatchewan Tech Venture Challenge in 2012. Landowners listing farmland for rent run the gamut from retired farmers to non-farming young people who grew up on the land to companies that have invested in farmland.

The dollar per acre value of that land, as well as who is available to rent it, isn’t always obvious to them. “It’s not something you can just pull out of a hat and say your land is located here so this is the answer, so we knew that we wanted a system that would answer that question for landowners,” said Shannon Veurink, one of the minds behind, a web-based service founded in Ontario. Lisitza agreed. “Everyone has an opportunity and is completely fully aware that they could potentially rent something,” said Lisitza. “Ultimately, what you’re getting from this is a market solution. The market is determining what the value of something is and I think that’s a very fair way of conducting a transaction.”

Renterra is an online auction system where owners can list farmland, as well as soil and cropping history information, and receive dollar per acre bids that will lead to a physical contract. Cash rental agreements are the most common. Lisitza said 111 western Canadian auctions have been completed through the website, which was launched in late 2012. Rental agreements vary from small parcels of land to larger pieces spanning several quarter sections. Lisitza said most farmers using the website are younger than 45 and run operations from 1,500 acres to more than 25,000 acres. “A lot of these guys are actively and aggressively searching for new land,” he said. Lisitza said 2,000 farmers are regis-

tered with the website. Veurink said has 1,000 farmers registered in Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta. “I know in Ontario for sure if you put a decent quality piece of land for rent on Kijiji, landowners tell us they’re getting 50, 60 calls within the first 24 hours and it can be kind of a pressure cooker,” said Veurink. “Farmers want the land, so they’re encouraging them, forcefully somewhat, to make a decision before they’ve really had a chance to field offers from everyone else. What (the site) does is it hits the pause button for both parties. It gives the farmers a chance to get their offer in and it gives the landowners a chance to have breathing space while offers come in without the social pressure in your face or at your door.”

Site charges fee to link land owners, renters BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Before she had a website, Shannon Veurink had pieces of paper sprawled out across the floor. From this low-tech start, Veurink, husband Kevin and brother- and sister-in-law Andrew and Brittany Veurink, developed an online platform connecting farmland owners with prospective renters. “We had a massive newsprint roll,” said Veurink of Hagersville, Ont. “It was 15, 20 feet long on the living room floor and we brainstormed every feature and function that we thought the website should include to make it work and then we just kind of played around like a puzzle.” The group rolled out rentthisland. com last February after a year of development. The website allows landowners to list farmland available for rent and receive offers from farmers interested in renting the land. “There are a lot of people who are quite comfortable to rent their land out on their own and who would use our site feeling like they have the knowledge to go ahead and do their own lease,” she said. “Our goal in creating the site is not to take the business away from brokers. What we would actually hope is we can establish relationships with brokers where they would use our website just like any other landowner.” The business is to be featured on

CBC’s Dragons’ Den TV series in early March. The appearance was filmed last year and Veurink must remain mum on the details of the appearance ahead of its airing. “That’s something that we’re quite sure will help us spread the word a lot quicker,” she said. The service doesn’t function like an auction. Rather, landowners can proceed with the bid of their choosing, factoring in the dollar per acre offered, the profile of the farmer and agronomic concerns. Shannon said the idea for the business came from Kevin, who farms 3,000 acres of corn, wheat and soy with his brother. “Land rental is so important to agriculture and he kind of had this moment where he’s like, ‘why isn’t a website doing this?’ “ she said. Fa r m e r s re g i s t e re d w i t h t h e website can receive notifications when land in their area is posted, but they are charged a fee to make offers as well as a percentage of the total lease value. The two sides write up a contract after the agreement is made online. “When I met Kevin he didn’t even have an email address and so here he is making a website, so that part of it is new for him, but the risk taking is a bit inherent in Kevin and Andrew’s farm operation,” said Shannon. “If there’s a cutting edge farm practice or if there’s an opportunity to be seized, the two of them usually weigh their options and jump on things pretty quickly.”







Malting barley markets may be on doorstep Domestic sales opportunities | Craft brew masters seek varieties of hops and barley with less protein and beta glucan BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Canada has worked hard to find international buyers for its malting barley, but the best customers might be right here at home. Craft beer is one percent of the world’s production of 200 billion litres, but its growth since 2004 has been measured in double digits. Annual sales of craft beer in North America from 2004-13 increased from 800 million to two billion litres. “About 30 percent of Canada’s malting barley goes to the craft industry. It is a pretty big component of what we do in Canada,” said Darren Smith, head of North American operations in Calgary for RMI Analytics, a Swiss based advisory company specializing in brewing raw


40 percent materials and providing education for the industry. “It is a very specialized business, and it lends a lot of opportunities to the barley industry in Canada.” Craft brew masters are looking for specific varieties of hops and barley to differentiate their specialty products. They use a higher rate of malt and prefer barley with lower ratios of protein and beta glucan. “That is a huge opportunity for Canada’s barley program to get coupled in with this industry and come

up with varieties that are really going to work,” he told the Western Barley Growers Association annual meeting held in Calgary Feb. 13-14. “Those varieties may already be there.” New varieties such as Cerveza and AC Major were developed for the craft industry, and breeders could develop more if they were well funded, said Rob McCaig of the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre. The craft niche has attracted the attention of major malting compa-

nies, which are scaling back export programs to supply the market. “I can see our malt exports dropping a little bit,” McCaig said. Big players such as AnheuserBusch still dominate the beer trade but they are watching the growth of these little breweries, said Smith. Some have bought or are looking at buying craft brewers or are offering their own specialty labels. North America has 3,000 craft brewers, and many supply a local pub or restaurant or sell it in specific regions. More than 1,200 new private breweries opened in 2012, and the latest statistics from last year indicate that 1,700 breweries are in the planning stages in the United States. One-third are expected to make it to the production phase. The number of Canadian breweries has increased by 40 percent in the last five years, according to the Beer Canada website. Most of these small companies have opened in Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia. U.S. craft brewers had a 7.5 percent market share last year, which is expected to grow to 10 percent within a couple years. Canada is expected to experience similar growth. While specialty brews gain in popularity, traditional beer production growth is flat in North America, said McCaig. Molsons reported that the Canadian beer industry grew by .5 percent in 2013, while the U.S. industry is down 1.5 percent. The real growth has been in Asia, Africa and South America. The U.S. was the largest beer producer in the world in 2008 at 23 billion litres, followed by China at 20 billion litres. Canada was the 11th largest producer at 2.2 billion litres. However, Canada was not even in the top 20 in 2012. China made 48.9 billion litres while the U.S. fell to 22.5 billion. Brazil produced 13.3 billion and Russia made 9.8 billion litres. China will produce 50 billion litres this year for its growing population and improved incomes. In fact, the world’s leading brand is the Chinese beer Snow. Bud Light is number two and Budweiser is third. “The good news is they all take Canadian malt barley,” said McCaig. He said Canadian malting barley is a desirable product because of its high quality and the added advantages of traceability and fewer inputs. Western Canada’s malting barley growers use the least amount of pesticides and herbicides in the world. “This is very important to brewers to have that risk removed.” The challenge is finding enough malting barley as acreage continues to fall worldwide. Some offshore companies have substituted other inputs such as corn, rice or sorghum and are not returning to barley. In Canada, the competition for acres with canola and wheat has seen barley production fall 10 to 12 percent in the last couple years. However, yields are increasing, with new varieties such as Meredith 117 percent better than Metcalfe, which offsets the acreage loss. Barley from Canada and Europe is shipped to China, where it is malted

• Consumption of domestic and imported beer in 2012 stood at 65.81 litres per person based on total population. • An average of 98 percent of beer bottles are returned in Canada. • Although remaining ahead of cans in sales, bottle share continues to decrease, moving from 61 percent to 46 percent of total sales since 2007.

and sold throughout Asia. “That is kind of a threat to maltsters here in Canada,” McCaig said. Still, companies turn to Canada when they are looking for quality, he added. “One thing we have done well over the last 50 years, which the (Canadian) wheat board did for us, is really hammer away on quality,” he said. “We are still known for quality in terms of malting barley.” Two row barley is king around the world because it provides more extract, which means more beer. It provides the proper enzymes for conversion to change the starch in the barley to sugar. As well, there is enough protein for yeast health and growth. Canadian malt also provides the specific protein needed to enhance the foam, which is considered an indicator of good beer quality. Canadian malting barley is 11 to 13 percent protein, which customers may blend with Australian or Argentine barley to reach the 9.5 protein level needed for their programs. However, new varieties are needed to give maltsters and brewers what they want. Metcalfe, Copeland, Meredith and PolarStar now represent most of the malt trade, while new varieties such as Newdale, Major, Bentley, Merit 57 and CDC Kindersley are showing good potential. “Without new and improved varieties moving into our system, we are going to see less interest in our malt barley,” McCaig said.





Wild weather puts climate back on global agenda Reducing greenhouse gases | Official says scale and speed of action needs to improve OSLO/LONDON (Reuters) — Bitter cold in large parts of North America might appear to contradict the notion of global warming, but with Britain’s wettest winter and Australia’s hottest summer, extreme weather events have pushed climate change back on the political agenda. A spluttering world economy had sapped political interest in the billiondollar shifts from fossil fuels that scientists say are needed to cut greenhouse gas emissions. However, rhetoric is changing in 2014, one year before a deadline for a

new United Nations climate deal. U.S. secretary of state John Kerry has gone the furthest, calling climate change “perhaps the most fearsome weapon of mass destruction” and ridiculing those who doubt that climate change is man-made. Almost 200 governments have agreed to work out a deal at a summit in Paris in December 2015 to combat rising global temperatures, which a UN panel of scientists has predicted will cause increasing extreme weather and rising seas. The deal would replace the 1997

Kyoto Protocol, which was the world’s first attempt to agree to emissions reductions. It was spurned by the United States and did not impose limits on rapidly developing economies such as India and China. Canada pulled out of Kyoto in 2012, after faling far behind in the carbon emissions reductions set out in the agreement. Wild weather has hit some of the most developed parts of the world, and politicians in rich nations are once again under pressure to address the issue.

(Climate change is) perhaps the most fearsome weapon of mass destruction. JOHN KERRY U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE

needs to improve.” Disasters in the past two or three years, including 2013’s Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, had also focused minds, she added. U.S. president Barack Obama and French president Francois Hollande recently urged an ambitious climate deal in 2015, which would come into force from 2020. Large parts of the U.S. and Canada suffered bone-numbing cold last month, which some scientists say could be a paradoxical side-effect of disruptions to the jet stream linked to climate change. Britain has had the wettest December-January on record, with widespread floods. Br itish opposition leader Ed Miliband said Britain was “sleepwalking to a climate crisis.” Last year was the warmest on record in Australia with heat waves, droughts and wildfires. Prime minister Tony Abbott is skeptical of a link to man-made global warming. “If you look at the records of Australian agriculture going back 150 years, there have always been good times and bad,” he said during a recent tour of drought-stricken farming regions. “This is not a new thing in Australia.” The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change raised the probability last year to at least 95 percent from 90 percent assessed in 2007 that mankind has been the main cause of global warming since the mid-20th century. Most nations have yet to say what curbs they will impose on carbon emissions in 2015, in a deal that could influence energy investments from coal to wind power. “It’s very good that international leaders are increasingly recognizing the threat of climate change,” said Connie Hedegaard, the European Union’s climate commissioner. “But leaders must walk the talk with concrete and for ward-looking actions and pledges.” The European Commission has proposed a 40 percent cut in the bloc’s emissions by 2030 from 1990 levels, after a 20 percent cut by 2020. China, the top greenhouse gas emitter, has an added incentive to cut emissions: disastrous levels of air pollution caused by its rising use of coal. “There will be more to see on China’s (climate) plans around June 2015,” said Jiang Kejun of the staterun think-tank Energy Research Institute. He said China aims to set a cap on energy consumption and carbon emissions in its next five-year plan, starting in 2016. Most experts say that any 2015 deal is likely to be well short of deep cuts in emissions that scientists say are needed to limit global warming to a UN goal of no more than 2 C higher than pre-industrial times.





Outstanding young farmers honoured Dairy farm, market garden | Couple raise purebred Holsteins and free range laying hens, and grow organic crops BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

BANFF, Alta. — Dairy farmers Richard and Nicole Brousseau of St. Paul have been named Alberta’s outstanding young farmers for 2014. Working with Nicole’s parents, Bert and Yvonne Poulin, they have 50 purebred Holsteins at Moo-Lait Family Farm. Both worked off the farm at Lakeland College in the dairy division, although neither expected to eventually milk cows.

“I always loved agriculture. I didn’t know if I would be a dairy farmer, but I wanted to be involved,” said Nicole after they won the honour at a ceremony in Banff Feb. 14. Richard became dairy manager at the college at Vermilion, Alta., and has also worked on large hog operations before the opportunity arrived to work with his in-laws in northeastern Alberta. They grow all their own crops and have developed a healthy soil and environmental farm plan that they feel benefits the feed they produce

and ultimately improves the health of their cows. They have three children: Ethan, Cassie and Emery. Meanwhile, Lydia Ryall of Delta, B.C., owner of Cropthorne Farm, was named British Columbia’s outstanding young farmer. Working with her sister, Rachel, she started as a market gardener and eventually started Cropthorne Farm. The farm consists of 10 acres of 50 organic crops in greenhouses and outdoors, where they are able to grow

crops 10 months of the year. It also has a community shared agriculture program and raises free range laying hens. Before returning to B.C.’s Lower Mainland, Ryall earned a bachelor of science degree from the University of Lethbridge and a diploma in agriculture production from Olds College in Olds, Alta. She then worked as a environmental farm planner for the province before starting her operation. The national competition will be held in Quebec City Nov. 25-30.

Parlay shown to reduce lodging in ryegrass BY REBECA KUROPATWA FREELANCE WRITER

Plant growth regulators such as trinexapac-ethyl can substantially reduce lodging in perennial ryegrass. Wayne Bennett of Syngenta Canada said a product called Parlay, available through minor use regulations, helps protect turf-type perennial ryegrass grown for seed. “Parlay uses this chemistry to improve harvest efficiency by strengthening the stocks of the plants, reducing stock height, and limiting lodging, allowing for faster swathing and crop drying,” said Bennett. “Lodging impacts pollination success, which ultimately impacts seed development and yield,” he said. Research conducted by the MFSA found that a well-timed Parlay application improves not only crop lodging ratings but also yield. “Lodging ratings were used to compare treatments with each plot rated on a scale of one to five,” said Bennett.  “A lodging rating of one means the entire crop has lodged, and a rating of five means there is zero lodging in the plot.” Parlay should be applied before or during the stem elongation stage of development, he said. While the product is effective at any time in this growth stage, the recommended timing is when the second node on the main stem is detectable. Based on trial work by MFSA, the untreated plots had an average lodge rating of 1.08, whereas plots treated with Parlay had an average rating of 3.75 (0.7 litres per acre label rate applied) and 4.75 (1.4 litres per acre label rate applied). “The average yield increase at the lower rate of Parlay was nine percent and with the higher rate of Parlay it was a 15 percent increase,” he said. Parlay is registered only for use on turf-type perennial ryegrass grown for seed. According to BrettYoung, a Winnipeg seed company distributor, perennial ryegrass yields in Manitoba and Saskatchewan have ranged from 600 to more than 1,600 pounds per acre net clean seed, with a five-year average of 800 lb.

Pre-weaning nutrition critical to sperm count High energy diet | Bulls that are well-fed before 30 weeks of age showed improved reproductive functions BY REBECA KUROPATWA FREELANCE WRITER

A lot of research has been done on how nutrition affects sexual development in post-weaning bulls. However, Leonardo Brito, a PhD candidate and lab manager with ABS Global Inc. in DeForest, Wisconsin, says no studies have investigated the effects of nutrition during pre-weaning. Until now, that is. Brito has conducted a study on how nutrition during a bull’s first year and a half affects metabolic hormones and sexual development. It measured how nutrition affects metabolic and reproductive hormones, which is hoped to lead to a better understanding of the physiological mechanisms controlling bulls’ sexual development. The study demonstrated how nutrition during pre-weaning affects the surge of luteinizing hormone and significantly affects sexual development. “High nutrition (125 percent of requirements) from two to six months of age hastened puberty and increased yearling scrotal circumference,” said Brito.

“Low nutrition (75 percent of requirements) had the opposite effects. They also observed the benefits of high nutrition in pre-weaning are carried over even if the nutrition plan is reduced to control (100 percent requirements) after six months of age, but that the deleterious effects of low nutrition in pre-weaning can’t be compensated by high nutrition in post-weaning.” The effect on physical growth can be compensated after weaning, but the effects on sexual development cannot. The research results indicated a need for a shift on bull management because they demonstrate that nutrition during pre-weaning will have greater effects on reproductive function than post-weaning nutrition. Cattle producers don’t typically consider nutrition or sexual development during the pre-weaning period. Bull calves should gain 2.5 to three pounds per day during pre-weaning to maximize reproductive potential. Strategies for achieving these results should include good dam management to optimize milk production and ensure that dams stay in good body condition and do not lose

affect sexual development. This is particularly the case for bull calves raised by first-parity cows with lower milk production. It is also critical to not feed bull calves to the point that they gain more than three to 3.5 lb. per day after weaning because it will not positively affect reproductive function. “Excessive weight gain has been demonstrated to result in fat accumulation in the scrotum, impaired testicular thermoregulation, decreased sperm production and reduced semen quality,” said Brito. “Overfeeding has also been associated with increased incidence of liver abscesses, infection of the vesicular glands, hoof problems and low libido. Ranchers should have moderate weight gain targets for the postweaning period.” John Kastelic, head of the University of Calgary’s production animal health department and study supervisor, said the researchers knew that important endocrine events happened before 25 weeks of age in bulls and wanted to determine how they were affected by diet. They discovered that nutrition before 30 weeks of age had a profound effect on bulls’ hormone concentrations, reproductive development and general development. “Overall, bulls that received approximately 130 percent of requirements for energy and protein before 30 weeks of age reached puberty a few weeks earlier, and at sexual maturity (16 months) had testes and sperm production that were each 20 to 30 percent greater than bulls that received only 70 percent of requirements before 30 weeks of age,” said Kastelic. Also, well-fed bulls weighed more than the underfed bulls. “We chose the 30 percent increase or decrease from requirements as a model to determine the nutritional effects,” said Kastelic. “To facilitate our ability to modulate diet, we weaned beef calves at about six weeks of age, adapted them to eat-

ing silage and then fed them a silagebased diet, with rolled barley and canola meal added as needed to fortify their diet.” The bulls that were underfed before 30 weeks of age could not be rescued by feeding 130 percent of requirements after 30 weeks. “The number of sperm produced in each gram of testis wasn’t affected by diet,” said Kastelic. “Bulls that received high nutrition had larger testes that produced more sperm, enabling them to breed more females. But there was no significant effect of diet on sperm morphology.” Kastelic strongly encouraged producers to ensure that their bulls are well fed before 30 weeks of age, which would involve some form of creep feeding to deliver a ration that provides energy and protein supplements as well as vitamins and minerals. “In our view, the key issue is to supplement bull calves before 30 weeks of age, and then put them on a more modest ration thereafter to avoid all the negative effects of overfeeding bulls after weaning.” Kastelic and his team are now conducting similar studies with Holstein bulls and getting similar results. They are also doing detailed studies to better understand how nutrition affects concentrations of various hormones to better understand mechanisms controlling reproductive development and puberty.





Student eager for knowledge, skills to succeed Agricultural machinery technician | Agronomy student learns how to grow crops and to keep equipment running BY WILLIAM DEKAY SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Next time your clutch is slipping, ask Katelyn Duncan about it. The young farmer has wanted to learn the mechanical side of agriculture for years. Now she can tear down an engine and put it back together with no missing pieces. When it’s running, she can visualize and hear its moving parts, understanding how they each work together. “It’s the stuff I always wondered and wished I knew. Now I do,� said Duncan, who is enrolled in the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology’s 35-week agricultural machinery technician pre-employment program in Saskatoon. It’s one more thing the 24-year-old can check off on her “to do� list as she prepares to one day run her own farm. “I knew this (mechanics) was an area I was lacking,� she said, dressed in coveralls and leaning against an engine block. “I want to be a producer. I want to be ahead of the game and ahead of the curve. I don’t want to be as good as everyone else. I want to be better.� Duncan is the only woman taking the course this year and feels she gets along well in the male dominated environment. However, she knows she needs to earn respect of her fellow students while not being intimidated. “I feel like I’ve got a lot of respect around here. These are 17- or 18-yearold boys. The majority of them wouldn’t say a word because they know that won’t fly.... They’re like my little brothers,� she said. “Doesn’t matter if you have a degree. In the shop, it’s different. Can you take an engine apart or can’t you.� Duncan has a lot on her plate. Besides the full-time course at SIAST, she is also completing her fourth year degree at the University of Saskatchewan’s agriculture college. Her thesis is studying the effects of Group 2 tolerance on camelina. She grew up on a large grain farm just south of Regina, which is so large and modern that it didn’t offer much opportunity to learn about mechanics beyond the occasional oil change or replacing a sprayer nozzle. “I find coming from a farm that is fairly progressive and has pretty new equipment, I haven’t fixed much, and if we do, we call the dealership because it requires a laptop,� she said. “I think this kind of program will become a lot more popular for just the average farmer because you need to learn how to fix stuff and unless you’re out there on old machinery, you’re not going to learn it.� Tim Coates, one of Duncan’s ag machinery instructors, said he appreciates her desire to learn new things with a goal in mind. “Part of making her farm better is going through the university, taking the class there and taking the class here to ensure she is as good as she can be once she does go back to the farm,� he said Coates agreed with Duncan’s approach of building her education base to eventually operate her own farm.

I want to be a producer. I want to be ahead of the game and ahead of the curve. KATELYN DUNCAN AGRONOMY, MECHANICS STUDENT

“She’s getting experience in how to grow crops better, how to be a better farmer, but she’s also getting experience on how to maintain the farm through our course. You don’t see a lot of people do both.� If all goes according to plan, Duncan will graduate later this year as a certified agronomist along with her certificate as an agricultural machinery technician. She admitted that switching gears between a university program and a technical college has forced her to fine-tune her time management skills. “It’s different because this is handson learning,� she said. “It’s very focused on ‘be here’ because if you miss it you’re not going to know what’s going on. With university, the notes are online. Nobody cares if you skip class. You’re your own individual and independent.� Duncan is also a board member with the Saskatchewan Young AgEntrepreneurs and president of the Agriculture Student’s Association and the Ag Bizz Club, both at the U of S. “I don’t like a day of sitting there and wasting it,� she said. “If I’m going to do something relaxing or enjoyable that day, I make sure that I schedule it in and really use that day to relax. “My dad always laughs at me and says that on my 22nd birthday, I looked at him and said, ‘I’m not getting any younger, you know.’ He just laughed because he’s like, ‘really?’ �

Small farms must look for savings, new opportunities Size doesn’t matter | Small operations must be managed differently BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Small and medium-sized farmers can be easily intimidated by farmer neighbours who are cropping many thousands of acres. However, Kevin Hursh says smaller farmers need to shake off their low self-esteem and realize that they might be just as viable as the giants around them. “If you can make money and you’re happy doing what you’re doing and you have some work-life balance, the hell with them,” the Saskatchewan agrologist, farmer and media commentator said about those who mock smaller farms. “There’s nothing wrong with running a moderate-sized farm operation as long as the numbers work,” he told a presentation at the CropConnect conference Feb. 18. The main threat to a small farm’s future is often in the farmer’s mind, Hursh added. “I think we need to manage our attitude,” he said. “Sometimes I think we get an inferiority complex if you’re only 1,000 acres or 2,000 acres.”

He said small farms can be viable, but they shouldn’t just attempt to be mini versions of the huge farms with no fundamental differences. “If we’re going to do just the same crops and market just the same way and pretend we’re a big guy but scaled down, we’re going to get big guy returns but scaled down.” This won’t provide a good family income, he added. Hursh said small farmers probably need to be more cautious. Big farms tend to buy lots of land across a wide region and buy lots of new farm equipment, he said. Small farmers can probably be more cost efficient by having low debt, land that is closely connected and a production system that pays more hands-on attention to crops. “If you can look at things you can do differently in your area and take advantage of cost savings or new crops or marketing opportunities or identity preservation, whatever works on your operation, I think that’s where we can make the difference.” Hursh said small farmers can practise more careful and quality-focused production than can many large farmers, who often rely on employees.

He said big farmers are often mostly business managers rather than farmers, so small farmers can put their effort into actual production. “A lot of us didn’t get into this to become a manager of managers or a manager of people,” said Hursh. “I see that with some of the larger and larger operations. It’s becoming an office job.” Smaller farmers need to forget about size and local social status and focus on whether they can make enough money to support themselves. “You’ve got to do your numbers,” said Hursh. “You’ve got to manage. You’ve got to figure what’s realistic from your land base and the crops you can grow, but look for new opportunities, look for things that you’re willing to do that maybe the larger scale operations are not as willing to do.”

E. coli outbreak leads to new rules for mechanically tenderized beef BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Mechanically tenderized beef that is sold in Canada must now be labelled as such and include safe cooking instructions. The new regulations, which come into effect May 15, follow an E. coli O157 outbreak in 2012 at the XL Foods plant in Brooks, Alta. The contaminated beef, which was linked to 18 cases of illness, had been mechanically tenderized by retailers. The safe cooking instructions required by the regulations recommend that the internal temperature of the meat reach 63 C. Processors, food services and retailers commonly use mechanical tenderization to improve the tenderness and flavour of cooked beef. The practice uses needles or blades to pierce the meat’s surface or inject it with marinade or tenderizing solution. It is impossible for consumers to see if mechanical tenderization has taken place. The process can increase the risk of food-borne illness if the surface of the meat is contaminated with bacteria, which can be transferred from the surface to the centre of the meat. Health Canada completed a health risk assessment on E. coli O157 in mechanically tenderized beef last year, which found a five-fold increase in risk from mechanically tenderized

beef compared to intact cuts of beef. E.coli O157 can cause vomiting and diarrhea and lead to kidney failure. “The assessment also identified that without labels, it is difficult for Canadians to identify which products have been mechanically tenderized,” said the Canada Gazette information. The government announced last May that it planned to implement mandatory labelling for all mechanically tenderized beef products sold in Canada. The following month, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced proposals to require labelling and cooking instructions on mechanically tenderized beef. An analysis from the U.S. estimated that mechanical tenderization labelling would prevent 34 cases of foodborne illness a year. About 41 of the 426 federally inspected meat processing facilities in the United States use mechanical beef tenderizing, while 37 of 389 nonfederally registered facilities are thought to use the practice. Health Canada does not know how many retailers package or repackage tenderized beef products. The Canada Gazette statement said the proposals should reduce the number of recalls for tenderized beef products. Marty Carpenter, executive director of market development with Canada Beef, said tenderization is safe if done correctly.

Grass-fed program can reap benefits Producer touts higher retail profits | Program takes longer but produces more beef BY REBECA KUROPATWA FREELANCE WRITER

It takes more time to finish a cow on grass, but the retail profits for a 30-month-old heifer can be more than double that of an 18-month-old, says a Manitoba producer. Jim Lintott of Oakbank, Man., said an 18-month-old animal with a total production and marketing cost of $1,112 was sold at the retail level for $2,059 for a net return of $947. “With a 30-month-old, we have production costs of $1,275, but we had a retail value of $3,120 and a net return of $1,845 — nearly double,” he said. “With both those numbers you have to subtract about $300 carrying costs on the cow at the beginning of their life, so, not a huge difference.” Lintott said the difference in the bottom line begins with finishing a mature animal, which matures and naturally fattens up at 24 to 30 months. The rest of the difference was achieved through the processing system from a live carcass to finished cuts. “Looking at weight alone, for the 18-month-old, we got $1,005, while the 30-month-old was $1,175,” said Lintott. “The hard carcass weight yield on the 18-month-old was only 54 percent, with 55 percent on the 30-month-old for the live-to-hard. But then, when you go from the hard to the cut-and-wrap, the 18-monthold yield was 46 percent versus 67 percent on the 30-month-old.” Lintott uses heifers for the grass


It pays to listen to your AIR SEEDER.

A Manitoba producer says heifers are the best to use in a grass finishing program. | finishing program, with the best going back into the herd to maintain good genetics. Steers are typically harder to finish because they take more time. As a result, he sells them to feedlots. “Our policy is if a heifer isn’t in the finishing program by December, it stays as a breeder because, ethically, we can’t envision taking what we know to be a bred cow past her first and into the second trimester and not keep her as a bred,” said Lintott. “In our program, if we know we’re going to try to finish them at 24-to30-months, we have a background program over that 24-month period at a lower cost. If you’re shooting for an earlier finishing, you’ll have a higher cost and they typically don’t

finish as easily. It takes a much higher quality feed to do it, and we haven’t gone down that road. We’ve identified this method as quite cost effective, as we’re doing a lower rate of gain per day.” Lintott generally aims to finish his heifers by the 900-day mark. “Our cost between summer and winter is a $1 a day on that animal,” he said. “It’s going to cost anywhere from 30 cents to 60 cents a day on grass in the summer and $1 to $1.50 a day on feed in the winter. In the last summer, pasture costs are higher because you’re using the very best quality pasture you have, so you have to assign a higher cost. The extra year costs about an extra $300.”


Lintott said animals that are kept longer grade higher, which keeps customers coming back. Lintott dry ages his beef, which he said restores the tenderness and improves the flavour. “You lose around 10 to 12 percent weight in the dry aging process,” he said. “There’s lots of controversy on how long you need to dry age. We dry age for 21 days, which is sort of the middle ground.” Lintott markets his heifers at farmers markets in the summer and does direct-to-home sales in the winter. “We’re so close to Winnipeg so we can do a relatively small amount of deliveries in the evenings. Small size and low dollar value orders are pretty cost effective,” said Lintott.

place with wheat in Manitoba, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Quebec, open-pollinated corn in Quebec, oats in the Prairies and Quebec and potatoes in British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick. Kate Storey, who farms with her husband, Doug, near Grandview, Man., has managed one of the wheat program’s 12 on-farm plots for the past three years. She is not paid for her work, but royalties are a possibility if a line she selects is developed into a variety. The first varieties could be released within the next five to six years. “We want a wheat variety that might be described as moderate in a lot of respects,” she said. “I know a lot of farmers are looking for high yield, but I’m looking for moderate yield, something we can get every year.” She is also looking for medium height, weed tolerance, high protein, sprout resistance, early vigour and colour retention even during a wet harvest. Storey told the Guelph Organic Conference Jan. 31 that the program has encountered extremely wet and dry years. Iris Vaisman, who works with project researchers, said participatory farm breeding programs have been successful in North Africa and the Middle East. “The reason it’s successful is that they’re working with farmers who need varieties that do well in marginal areas without using pesticides and fertilizer,” she said. “Varieties should be bred in the environment in which they’re grown, locally adapted.” Karri Stroh, executive director of the Northern Plains Sustainable Agriculture Society in the United States, said her organization has operated a participatory plant breeding program for many years. The concept is gaining momentum in North America, she added. Duane Falk, a plant breeder for 30 years at the University of Guelph, said breeding programs are influenced by environmental considerations as well as human preferences. Falk said plant breeding begins with crucial decisions about parent selection for crossing. Subsequent selection from among the genetically variable offspring will then make or break the plant breeding program. Soybean breeder Istvan Rajcan of the U of G began work on an organic soybean breeding program last year. He said breeding objectives for organic production are different than for conventional agriculture. For example, soybean’s ability to fix nitrogen may be higher on the priority list, along with early vigour, canopy formation and the development of soil-plant mycorrhizal relationships. Researchers include Martin Entz, Stephen Fox and Jennifer Mitchell Fetch of the U of M, Lana Reid of Agriculture Canada’s Eastern Cereal and Oilseed Research Centre in Ottawa and Benoit Bizimungu of Agriculture Canada’s Potato Research Centre in New Brunswick.

Tile drainage boosts yield, reduces nitrogen loss Interest beyond potato land | Some growers are considering tile drainage for salinity control and yield stability BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Draining soil with tile isn’t complicated. In fact, it’s comparable to the scientific principles behind a cleaning sponge, says Hans Kandel, an extension agronomist with North Dakota State University. During his presentation at the

CropConnect conference held in Winnipeg Feb. 18-19, Kandel dipped an orange sponge into a bucket and held it at waist height as water dripped back into the bucket. “Most of you went to kindergarten, I hope?” Kandel said. “If I lift it out of the water … some of the water drips out of the sponge…. There is a force pulling the water out.

Hans Kandel, an extension agronomist with North Dakota State University, used a sponge to explain how gravity pulls water into tile drainage pipe and carries it away, allowing in air for root growth. | ROBERT ARNASON PHOTO

Gravity is pulling the water out.” Gravity also pulls water down through the soil. It collects in perforated pipe and then flows out of the field into an adjacent ditch or collection pond. “Gravity pulls the water out and air comes in. From an agriculture perspective, we are now creating good conditions for root growth,” said Kandel. Farmer interest in drainage tile has spiked in Manitoba over the last several years as wet springs and summers have flooded out fields and curbed crop yields in the province. Most installations have been limited to high value potato land because the cost is $600 to $700 per acre. However, oilseed growers are also burying tile under their land. Curious farmers often want to know about the yield boost from tile drainage, but Kandel said there other benefits as well, such as reduced nitrogen losses, yield stability, salinity control and field access. Kandel’s research in North Dakota, which evaluated the same soybean varieties on drainage tile and without tile, suggests tiling enhances yield by nine percent, although yield increases can be significantly higher in wet years. “Basically, what I’m telling you is if you have an excess rainfall event, tile will help you and will (improve) yield.” Controlling soil moisture also reduces the nitrogen losses that occur when soil is saturated. Kandel has evaluated the performance of enhanced efficiency fertilizers that reduce the potential of nitrogen losses and found that managing the water table plays a crucial role in

Yields are more stable over time. They (farmers) tell me they can sleep at night because the risk is less with tile drainage. HANS KANDEL AGRONOMIST

denitrification and leaching. “The (tile) drainage preserved more of the nitrogen than the (products),” he said. “Drainage is more important to protect your nitrogen.” Dave Franzen, a NDSU extension soil fertility specialist, said nitrogen losses from saturated soils can be significant. Clay soils in North Dakota were saturated for 30 days in the spring of 2010, and Franzen estimated the associated nitrogen losses at 80 pounds per acre. “If you figure that’s about 40 percent of the available N, 200 lb. of N, 40 percent over 30 days, that’s about 1.3 percent per day,” he said. Kandel has also studied the yield stability of tile-drained fields, which is yield variation from year to year. He determined that tile drainage has the greatest influence on yield stability compared to other agronomic practices. “Yields are more stable over time. They (farmers) tell me they can sleep at night because the risk is less with tile drainage.” Tom Scherer, an NDSU agricultural engineer, said most drainage tile is being installed in eastern North

Dakota but western farmers are also interested. “I’ve been out in the southwestern portion of the state, which has an annual precipitation of about 14 inches (350 millimetres),” he said. “Their low spots, that used to be their best producing, are starting to get salinized. So they’re interested in tile drainage more for salinity control.” Scherer said farmers who installed drainage tile in the heavy clay soil of Manitoba’s Red River Valley would have to reduce the spacing between the perforated pipe, which increases the cost. However, North Dakota farmers are installing tile in fields with high clay content, he added. “If you drive down to Fargo, you’ll find an awful lot of that land is (now) tiled,” he said. “As far as I know it’s similar soil (to Manitoba). There’s a large proportion of what they call Fargo clay, 55 to 65 percent clay.” Kandel agreed, noting it’s a matter of designing a system appropriate for the soil and field conditions. “In the whole world, it (tile drainage) works.” A grower from Winkler, Man., said he’s considering drainage tile but is worried about frost heave and its impact on the perforated pipe. Scherer said 150 years of drainage tile use in the United States and excavations following installation to check for frost effects indicate that frozen soil doesn’t displace or shift the position of the underground pipe. “That’s been a point of discussion,” he said. “There is no evidence that it ever takes place.”

WATER CONSOLIDATION REMAINS CONTROVERSIAL Drainage tile may be popular with farmers in eastern North Dakota, but it remains a contentious issue in the state’s prairie pothole region. Farmers with dozens of small sloughs on their land may want to drain those wetlands to improve the productivity of their farm. One option is a strategic installation of tile to drain the depressions and consolidate the water in a larger pond. Tom Scherer, an agricultural engineering professor with North Dakota State University, said the U.S. federal government strongly objects to such plans. “In our prairie pothole region, the Fish and Wildlife Service, they have easements on there and they don’t want anything interfering with the waterfowl,” Scherer said at the CropConnect conference in Winnipeg Feb. 19. “They’re not in favour of tile drainage anywhere near (wetlands).” Scherer said the penalties can be severe for farmers who drain a pothole or consolidate water on their land. “If you’re in the U.S. farm program (and) you drain a wetland, you can lose your benefits.”

Wet growing conditions in some parts of the Prairies have sparked an increase in interest in tile drainage. |







Growers may gain by teaming sunflowers with corn: expert

Farmers told to get creative to increase corn yields BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Alternative rotation | Sunflowers make use of excess nitrogen and can offer growers pricing and agronomic advantages over soybeans BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Sunflowers are holding their own in a rearguard action against the onslaught of soybeans and corn, says the president of the U.S. National Sunflower Association. Corn is turning out to the be an ally and soybeans are losing their luster. “I think as corn moves north, it’s going to want to drag soybeans with it, but what we’ve seen in the Dakotas and Minnesota is that sunflowers are the perfect dance partner for corn,” northwestern Minnesota farmer Kevin Capistran said at the CropConnect conference Feb. 18. “All of the problems that are associated with (growing) corn the year before, (growing) sunflowers mitigates an awful lot of it in the following year.” Analysts and farmers have speculated that sunflowers would be chased out of the Red River Valley in both the United States and Canada because of the invasion of corn and soybeans. Significant returns for corn and soybeans and major disease problems for sunflowers in the valley seemed to be bad news for the

longstanding crop. However, Capistran said many Minnesota growers are changing their minds. Soybeans tend to develop disease problems after a few years of production, and farmers hate wasting inputs spent on maxxing out corn yields. Capistran said farmers load their corn land with nutrients, which generally leaves big excesses after the corn is harvested. “The first rule of growing corn in Minnesota is never let the thing run out of nitrogen, or P and K for that matter,” said Capistran. “We absolutely make sure there’s plenty around.” It means that many corn fields have 50 to 80 pounds of nitrogen left in the soil for the following crop. Soybeans often follow corn in a rotation, but they won’t take advantage of that excess nitrogen. However, sunflowers will. Sunflowers will also help farmers who have trouble fighting through heavy corn trash and bad seeding conditions. Sunflowers can be seeded later and deeper if necessary, allowing farmers to seed a crop even if it is getting late and the soil is wet.

“We’ve got a really good setup where we should be looking at sunflowers following corn in the rotation,” said Capistran. A sunflower contractor and marketer listening to Capistran said he thought following corn with sunflowers was dangerous because volunteer corn in a sunflower crop can cause it to fail contract and sales specifications. Capistran said volunteer corn has to be carefully controlled, but products such as Assure II do an excellent job. Sunflowers are also popping to the top of some U.S. crop profit calculators this winter, with oilseed sunflowers the most profitable crop in one measure. Confectionary sunflowers also look good compared to other crop choices. “It’s not so much that our story has changed but that the competing crops have changed so much,” said Capistran. Corn’s price slump in the last year has dropped it down the profitability hierarchy, allowing sunflowers to stand up again. “This year the situation looks a lot better.”

There are lots of tricks and techniques that farmers can use to end up with great corn yields and returns. However, taking advantage of them might mean learning some new things and ignoring local naysayers, says agronomy broadcaster Brian Hefty of Ag PhD. “Most farmers across North America are not using the technology they’ve already got,” Hefty told the CropConnect conference Feb. 18. He said farmers often use methods and technologies incorrectly, causing small losses across a wide spectrum of production factors. Those include poor use of glyphosate, poor fertilizer use and poor variety selection. Hefty said few farmers bother to vary their seeding rate within a field, even if they know that some of the land is poor and some is rich. “We’ve talked about variable rate fertilizer for years, but now that I can change the planting population, too, this is a big deal,” said Hefty. “I cut back. In some cases it’s drastic.” He said he has patches in one of his fields that he seeds at 33,000 seeds per acre, while other areas receive 29,000 seeds per acre and poor sections receive 26,000 seeds. “That saves an awful lot of money,


and there’s no point putting all that out there,” said Hefty. “If you want to do it, it’s pretty simple.… A lot of the new planters have the technology already.” Hefty advised farmers to try many different ideas and methods for pushing yields on different parts of their farm just to see how they work out. He said farmers need to be building soil, tiling wet fields, planting new seed varieties and doing good pest management to get the best yields. However, they’re unlikely to try a lot of these unconventional methods and ideas if they don’t believe there’s much to be gained. The farmer who wants to get well beyond average yields and returns needs to be able to resist critics, he added. “People are trying to drag you down all the time. Are you going to listen to them, or not?” said Hefty.

Producers end GMO avoidance


Importers shift from bulk to containers LONDON, U.K. (Reuters) — Food importers in Asia are switching from dry bulk cargo ships to container ships to import smaller amounts at rates that are often cheaper per tonne. Agricultural commodities traditionally have been shipped on bulk carriers brimming with 60,000 to 70,000 tonnes of a single cargo such as wheat, corn or sugar. But the market is changing as ships seek to fill empty containers after unloading consumer goods in western countries and offer competitive rates for commodities going back to Asia, the world’s manufacturing hub.

Asian importers are shipping more bulk goods in containers. | At the same time, Asian import demand for animal feed grains is increasing. “As Southeast Asia develops economically, you have demand for better quality, high protein diets, and ports don’t (necessarily) have the infrastructure for bulk vessel receiving,” said Brian Bickford,


president of AgriLogistics, a U.S. company specializing in grain shipping. While buying in bulk can be economical, it also can put pressure on an importer’s working capital. A standard 20-foot shipping container holds only about 20 tonnes of grain. U.S. containerized grain exports

to Asia have more than doubled since 2006 to reach 470,832 20-foot containers in the first 10 months of 2013, up 10 percent from the year before, according U.S. Department of Agriculture data. Analysts estimate that 12 to 15 percent of Australia’s grain exports are now shipped in containers to Asia.

HAMBURG, Germany (Reuters) — German poultry producers have given up a promise to consumers to avoid feeding birds with soybeans containing genetically modified organisms because of lower supplies of non-GMO types, said poultry producers association BBH. Brazil, the main bulk supplier of GMO free soybeans, was likely to cut its supplies of GMO free soybeans by 50 percent this year partly because of cross-pollination with conventional beans, the association said. “Feeding for chicken and turkey production in Germany without use of genetic technology can no longer be undertaken,” the association said. “Specialist feed factories for production of poultry feed requires a seamless supply chain with impeccable GMO-free soybeans, but supplies can no longer be guaranteed in the required volumes.”

Ukraine predicts farmers will seed more corn this year. | FILE PHOTO

Corn acres increase six percent KIEV, Ukraine, (Reuters) — Ukraine’s farmers are likely to increase the area sown for corn by at least six percent to 12.9 million acres this year, agriculture minister Mykola Prysyazhnyuk said. The increase could provide Ukraine with up to two million tonnes of additional corn, according to analysts’ calculations. The ministry data showed farms sowed a total of 19.2 million acres for the 2014 winter grain harvest, including 15.6 million acres of winter wheat. Ukraine, which harvested a record grain crop of 63 million tonnes in 2013, sowed 19.5 million acres of winter crops, including 16 million acres of winter wheat. Ukraine harvested 22.2 million tonnes of wheat and 30.9 million tonnes of corn in 2013. Analysts have said the harvest could reach 61 million tonnes of grain in 2014, including 21.6 million tonnes of wheat and 27.5 million tonnes of corn.

U.S. farm subsidies to switch to crop insurance in 2015 Payments will require low yields or revenue | The government will still pay up to two-thirds of the crop insurance premiums CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — U.S. farmers and bankers have almost a year to get ready for major changes in 2015 as crop insurance rather than direct cash payments to producers becomes the centrepiece of farm policy under the country’s five-year farm bill. For 2014 plantings, analysts said there will be no major changes to crop insurance except sharply lower grain prices than in 2013, which will lower potential payments and premiums. Then in 2015, farmers will have a new insurance option for supple-

mental coverage based on local county yields. “Other than commodity prices there is not a lot of difference between 2014 and 2013,” said Michael Barrett, senior vice-president for crop insurance at Farm Credit Services of America, one of the biggest lenders to farmers in the plains states. “The structure of the policies is pretty much the same. The cost sharing for the premium didn’t change.” But this year will be a major transition for bankers, insurers and farmers. “The message is crop insurance does become the foundation of the

farm bill and the primary safety net for producers because they have lost all those direct payments,” Barrett said. The farm bill was delayed for nearly two years by wrangling over proposed cuts in food stamps and other aid for the poor, which will still account for 75 percent of the estimated $956 billion US budget over 10 years. But for farmers, the key debate was crop insurance. Among the burning issues were what is covered, who pays and how much, especially after five years of record farm earnings and two years after the worst drought

in half a century. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has traditionally subsidized farmers’ insurance costs for planting crops from grains and oilseeds to cotton, peanuts, fruits and vegetables. But it also bolstered farm finances through systems of direct cash payments for farmers who signed up for programs like conservation policies. “That has changed,” said Chris Hurt, extension economist at Purdue University, who said that previous farm bills’ automatic payments, regardless of good times or bad times, had been doomed by politics.

“This program does shift us back to counter-cyclical. It will be some kind of need, whether low yield or low revenue, to get payments.” Dale Moore, executive director for public policy at the American Farm Bureau Federation, said: “What we’ve seen over the past couple of decades regarding the trend in farm policy is a highlight of this bill: moving farther away from the income transfer programs toward an insurance model.” USDA will still pay up to two-thirds of the insurance premiums, with the subsidy going directly to the insurers.



Semi-annual cattle data among those reinstated


CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — Several reports that had been shelved last year due to U.S. budget constraints, including the mid-year cattle survey, are being brought back due to recent funding measures, according to a statement by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Following passage of its budget, USDA’s National Agriculture Statistics Service will reinstate the agricultural statistics previously suspended due to sequestration, USDA said. NASS plans to implement the reinstatements for its 2014 fiscal year appropriation and is expected to announce when the data will be published. The reports include:

GM supporters use social media (Reuters) — A group of biotech companies battling to increase U.S. consumer acceptance of genetically modified foods is increasing paid advertising efforts as it expands a social media marketing website it started last year. The paid ads will seek to drive traffic to the www.GMOAnswers. com website started last year by industry players that want to allay concerns about GM foods, according to an executive who helps to run the site. The web campaign is part of a broad strategy by the biotech industry to try to beat back growing calls for GMO food labelling and for tighter regulation of the biotech seed industry in the United States. A consortium backed in part by Monsanto, DuPont, and Dow AgroSciences, a unit of Dow Chemical, launched the website in July. So far, the site has logged more than 650 questions from an array of interested parties, chiefly focused on the impact of GMOs on health and nutrition.

Population growth sparks opportunities in agriculture Export markets expand | A growing middle class and increasing demand for food will spur livestock and grain sales BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Agricultural producers should be bullish about their prospects as global demand for food grows every year. “Every year we are adding 78 million people to the planet,” said Brett Stuart of Cattlefax. “That is the equivalent of nine New York Cities every year.” Income growth is also positive, which means an increased demand for beef, pork and poultry, he told a markets session held during the recent National Cattlemen’s Beef Association convention in Nashville. Pork and poultry production is growing, but there is barely enough beef to keep up with demand. Herds are expanding in India and Brazil, but other large beef producing nations are

falling behind. The result is higher prices, which are expected to continue strong for the next couple years. Global markets are diverse and affected by culture, politics and different food preferences. For example, 85 percent of all chicken feet produced in the United States are sold to Hong Kong. Variety meats such as liver go to Egypt and beef tongue is bound for Japan. “We are shipping just about every tongue we cut to Japan for $4 and sometimes up to $5 a pound,” Stuart said. The world is watching countries such as Japan, China and Russia, which need to import food and other commodities. However, the entire industry must deal with fluctuating currencies and inflation. Stuart said the skeptics who say exporting is risky should consider

how offshore sales can diversify an economy. “Look at the recession of 2008-09,” he said. “Thank goodness we had export markets.” As well, agriculture is just a small part of the overall portfolio that is required to buoy up an economy. “The Japanese economy is not concerned about beef,” said Michael Swanson, an economist with Wells Fargo. “Beef is way down on the list. What do the Japanese want to sell? Cars, televisions and semi-conductors because that is where the real money is.” Still, trade with China in fish, grain, beverages and forestry products has had a positive effect on the U.S. economy. “When you look at China and Hong Kong as a block, they have been the sole driver of U.S. econom-

ic growth,” said Swanson. Beef has made inroads to Hong Kong with sales of $720 million last year. “They are our buyer that has made a difference,” he said. The need for food is balanced with currency rates, which affects trading nations’ ability to buy or sell commodities. Food markets are evenly balanced in the North American Free Trade Agreement bloc of Canada, Mexico and the United States, even though each country’s currency changes. Canada had a weak dollar against the U.S. in the early 2000s while the Mexicans did not. The loonie is again slipping, so that $1.12 buys one U.S. greenback. This is a major benefit for Canada as an exporting country. Asian exchange rates are also moving, said Swanson. China allowed its

currency to strengthen in 2006-07, and there has been a 30 percent increase in the Chinese exchange rate against the U.S. dollar. Japan decided to let the yen weaken against the U.S. dollar in an attempt to kick start its economy. As a result, Japanese consumers find goods such as U.S. beef expensive. Australia and New Zealand made a conscious decision to let their currency strengthen against the U.S. dollar. As major commodity exporters to Asia, this has been a benefit. Argentina had a major devaluation in 2000, but its inflation rate is hard to track. The government says inflation is 12 percent, while independent economists say it is closer to 34 to 40 percent. However, Swanson said a devalued peso has allowed Argentina to sell beef, wheat, corn and soybeans around the world.


USDA food sustainability focus worries beef group Beef called unsustainable | The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association fears a drop in beef consumption BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The United States may revise its dietary guidelines next year with greater focus on eating more fruit and vegetables and promoting food sustainability. The guidelines are assessed every five years, said Kristina Butts, a Washington based policy analyst with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. The dietary guidelines are based on calories and servings of fruit, vegetables, cereals and proteins. They also suggest less salt intake and promote balanced meals. The guidelines are used to formulate the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s school breakfast and lunch program. The USDA forms a scientific advisory committee every five years to decide if the dietary guidelines need to be revised based on the most recent nutrition research. At issue for cattle producers is a trend toward eating less beef. “If Americans should eat meat, it should not be beef because they do not see beef as sustainable,” Butts said at a policy session during the NCBA’s convention held in Nashville Feb. 3-7. No explanation was provided as to why beef is considered unsustainable. The NCBA is working with other livestock groups to encourage the committee to include meat as a good source of protein. “If you don’t think the anti-meat groups aren’t sending comment, you are crazy. They are there, and they are floating vegan diets,” said Butts. The NCBA was able to nominate Wayne Campbell, a protein nutri-


tionist from Purdue University, to sit on the committee. The guidelines have recommended less fat since 1980, and the NCBA wants to increase awareness that beef has become leaner in the last 30 years. NCBA dietician Shalene McNeill said the association has funded nutrition studies that have found that the average consumption is 1.7 ounces of beef per meal. Health Canada spokesperson Leslie Meerburg said there are no plans to change Canada’s food guide. “When science shows a change would be required, that is when it is done,” she said. Small changes may be made, but the overall program stays the same. Changes are now being made to food labelling guidelines to provide more nutritional information. The public is invited to send comments about improvements that would help consumers use labels to make better food choices. Foods labels include 13 core nutrients and calories per serving. Consultations on the labels started Jan. 28 with discussions in Ottawa that focus on parents and consumers. Other sessions will be held in other Canadian cities, and people can submit comments to the nutrition labelling consultation by visiting messages/_2014/2014_01_28-eng.php.







Food producers learn about rules, direct selling methods Social media important | Food sellers shared their failures and successes at a direct marketing workshop BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Angela Thygesen already sells beef at a farmers market, but her customers keep asking her for chicken and eggs. However, she doesn’t want to jump in blind. First, she wants to know the rules and regulations of what she can and can’t do when selling directly to customers. Thygesen looked for answers at a recent direct marketing workshop hosted by Alberta Agriculture in Camrose. “I want to know what is required. I want an update on the changes to

Farmers who sell meat and other products at farmers markets need to be aware of regulations and food safety standards. | FILE PHOTO regulations,” said Thygesen of Hay Lakes, Alta. “I want to stay on top of food safety.” Thygesen received a primer on

food safety, access to finances, slaughter regulations and how to network with federal and provincial specialists and producers who also

want to do direct marketing. Kristy Goodsman of Edson, Alta., who raises 100 ewes, wanted to know how she could begin selling her lambs and the regulations she needs to follow. “I have no trouble selling them, I just need to know the regulations,” she said. Lisa Greenstein of Daysland, Alta, made her share of mistakes when she started selling her family’s animals. “We did far more wrong than right to get where we’re at,” said Greenstein of Greenstein Farms, which now sells lambs to customers across Alberta as well as in Save-On Foods stores in the province. She said social media has been key to their success, including YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Greenstein recommended starting with a simple website and expanding to get customers emotionally in-

volved with the farm and its produce. “When you’re selling something for twice as much as they can buy it in the store, the customer needs a reason to spend the extra money,” she said. “We buy on emotion, especially with things we don’t need.” Greenstein said managing the many social media platforms takes time, but it is key to maintaining customer interest in the product. She combines personal updates, ethical questions and controversial topics to get her followers engaged. A controversial posting on her Facebook page by a vegetarian generated enormous debate. Greenstein left the post instead of deleting it, which resulted in a dramatic increase of followers and page likes. She said social media may get customers’ attention, but sheer tenacity gets the sales contracts, especially with large grocers. “You need to be persistent.” Greenstein warned producers to be careful what they wish for with direct marketing. After she signed a contract with Save-On Foods, she next had to convince Alberta’s only federal lamb slaughter plant, which was her competition, to slaughter her lambs. Then she had to find labels and develop a distribution system. “Get ready for the bumps in the road,” she told the group. Eileen Katowice, Alberta Agriculture’s farmers market specialist, said selling through local farmers markets and joining other similar organizations is a good way for potential marketers to have a more smooth transition and learn the rules in a safe and friendly atmosphere.

An Alberta group that provides information and support for stable owners is asking for input on its first standards manual. The Alberta Stables Initiative (ASI) wants its online survey, which will conclude March 4, to collect input from horse owners, stable owners, trainers, breeders and anyone interested in the horse industry. Project co-ordinator Heather Matheson-Bird said the standards manual will be designed to assist stable users and stable owners. “It can help (a stable client) be a more informed consumer in terms of stable shopping, but I think it’s also warranted for stable owners as best practices, and just sort of as a reference for those who don’t know,” said Matheson-Bird. “If you’re going to start a stable, I hope you know what you’re doing but if you don’t, at least you have somewhere to go.” Survey respondents can answer some or all of its questions and will remain anonymous. The resulting

online manual is expected to be ready in May. “We’d like any horse enthusiast to comment because I think everyone is going to bring a different perspective to the table,” she said. “Certainly stable owners, employees, managers, all those type of people we want to participate, but also the person down the road who maybe boards their horses at a stable.” Matheson-Bird said the standards manual won’t include regulatory directives, but it will outline what is expected of stable owners in terms of horse care, facilities, rider safety and sound business practices. The ASI, which operates under a joint partnership of the Horse Industry Association of Alberta, the Alberta Equestrian Federation and Alberta Agriculture, plans to become a selfsupporting service for stable owners in the future, Matheson-Bird said. It now offers online stable listings, runs a stable owners seminar and provides support, education and marketing opportunities to horse stable businesses. About 600 stables operate in Alberta.

PED demands strict biosecurity Reducing traffic | Veterinarian optimistic spread of deadly virus can be contained BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Pork producers should try to envision their entire barn and its contents covered in red paint. Then they should figure out how to keep that paint from touching anything else. It’s a good way to consider biosecurity measures that can keep porcine epidemic diarrhea from entering hog operations and infecting pigs, said swine veterinarian Dr. Egan Brockhoff. “A lot of us are going to have to recognize that the virus is likely going to come to your farmyard, but what can we do to keep that from moving into the barn,” said Brockhoff. “We have to assume that our yards are contaminated.” PED moves in fecal material and can easily travel on trucks, boots and clothing. It favours cold weather and can survive freezing and live for a week in water and manure and up to a month in slurry. Even a small amount of virus-laden material can start an infection. A connection to feed has been confirmed in some cases, but the fecal-

oral connection is the primary way that PED spreads. Brockhoff said keeping it out of barns will require constant diligence by hog producers, including strict controls on entry, showers by personnel entering the barn, limits on human traffic and protocols on suppliers, transport trucks and carcass and manure disposal. He said he thinks PED-free operations can remain so if all that and more is constantly achieved. “I think we have a really good chance of keeping it out,” he said. “We haven’t had a case of TGE (transmissible gastroenteritis) in Alberta for 15 years and this virus behaves the same, similar rates of infectivity. So there’s a chance that we can keep it out. Realistically, it’s probably going to come into some herds. But that being said, I think … containment is realistic.” Brockhoff has visited farms that have the virus and has also seen PEDfree American hog operations that are surrounded by infected ones, which proves strict controls are effective. PED presents no threat to meat quality, human health or other ani-

Pork producers can reduce human traffic in barns and enforce protocols on transport trucks to help guard against porcine epidemic diarrhea, the deadly virus which has killed millions of piglets in the U.S. | FILE PHOTO mals. Its damage lies in piglet losses and the resulting reduction in farm productivity. Brockhoff said the first four weeks of PED infection result in death of all suckling piglets. Sixty percent of production can be recovered by Week 14, but operations don’t approach normal levels until Week 21. He estimated PED losses for one hog operation at $1,000 per sow, but figures vary by operation. Brockhoff’s visits to numerous hog

operations in Canada, the United States and Asia require attention to his own biosecurity. He said he sometimes takes eight showers a day when going in and out of barns and carries antiseptic wipes and sprays for frequent use. “I’ve found that I like the green apple scent,” he said with a smile. It was a rare moment of levity in a meeting rife with talk about truck and vehicle cleanliness, locked and protected barn entries, effective antiseptics and advice on biosecurity

that should become the new norm for hog operations. “It is an every day process, so every day people are going to have to get up, look in the mirror and say, ‘today we’re keeping this disease out,’ ” he said. “And if we can keep everyone just doing the important, really simple things consistently, we will keep it out.” Information on PED and biosecurity is available at, and manitobapork. com.

Pork virus vaccine proving ineffective Virus management | Long-living virus poses unique challenges for swine researchers and producers BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

A vaccine developed to fight porcine epidemic diarrhea is ineffective in protecting piglets, says a swine veterinarian. Dr. Egan Brockhoff of Prairie Swine Health Services told a Feb. 19 meeting of hog producers in Lethbridge that a vaccine developed in the United States by Harrisvaccines may reduce viral shedding but will not keep the disease out of herds. “Vaccine technology has improved a lot in the last 10 years, but this morning, we’re waking up with no effective vaccine against PED and we will wake up tomorrow with no effective vaccine,” Brockhoff said. He said the vaccine developer, well-known hog disease specialist Dr. Hank Harris, has told him that at least 800,000 doses of vaccine have been distributed to U.S. hog producers. They have failed to limit the spread of PED in the U.S., where it has infected more than 3,000 hog operations in 24 states and killed millions of piglets. PED spreads primarily through fecal-oral contact. It destroys the inner lining of piglets’ intestines, making them incapable of digesting and deriving nutrition from their milk and feed. The virus causes diarrhea, vomiting and death from severe dehydration and starvation. Brockhoff said an enteric oral virus likely needs an enteric oral vaccine to fight it, and no such vaccine exists. He said he has worked with vaccines in Asia, where PED has been evident since the early 1980s, and those vaccines are not effective either. Brockhoff said Harrisvaccines has developed two versions of the vaccine and is working on a third. Producers asked whether measures taken against transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE) might work against PED. Like PED, TGE is an intestinal disease caused by a coronavirus. However, Brockhoff dispelled the notion. “PED is slightly different than TGE. TGE, if we close a herd, heavily wash and disinfect the barn, we can walk TGE out, with closure. TGE doesn’t survive near as long in the environment. It doesn’t affect the gut near as long as PED.” Joel Harris, sales and marketing head for the Iowa-based Harrisvaccines, said earlier this month the company was hopeful that its vaccine would induce an antibody response in older animals. “The predominant use has been in previously exposed systems or chronically exposed systems,” he said of vaccine application in the U.S. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency announced earlier this month that it would issue emergency use permits for the vaccine so it could be used in Canadian operations. CFIA chief veterinary officer Dr. Harpreet Kochhar said “a couple” of import certificates had been issued, but he didn’t know of any Canadian

producers who had used it. PED is fatal to piglets, but older pigs can develop immunity. Producers who already have the virus in their barns are encouraged to develop a systematic method of exposing all sows, gilts and boars to the virus so that immunity develops. For those free of PED, strict biosecurity is required to keep the virus out.

Former GMO opponent decries science rejection Mark Lynas in Winnipeg | Environmentalist says he can’t cite science in support of climate change but ignore it with GMOs BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Mark Lynas looked the part of a stylish Brit as he strode through the hallways of a Winnipeg hotel wearing a grey jacket, blue Puma sneakers and a modern coif. His laid-back appearance is deceiving, however, because he’s one of the world’s most controversial environmentalists. More than a year ago, Lynas publicly renounced his long-standing opposition to genetically modified crops, explaining that his position wasn’t based on sound science. Lynas’ new philosophy, that GM crops provide environmental benefits, has changed his identity within the organic and anti-GM community. Once a shining star, those groups now view him as a pariah. Lynas has since toured the globe defending GMO technology, including a stop in Winnipeg Feb. 19 at Crop Connect, a conference for pulse, canola and special crop growers in Manitoba. He said his conversion from GMO opponent to proponent began in the late 2000s, after he wrote a book about climate change. Lynas spent hundreds of hours on research for the book to ensure he got the science right. When he compared his efforts on climate change to his attempts to discover the scientific truths about GMOs, he realized where he had gone wrong. Lynas relied on the positions of national and global scientific academies to inform his stance on climate change, but he shunned those groups when it came to GMOs. “The same institutions of experts also published consensus statements on biotechnology, using pretty much the same language, that the science is clear … it is safe, in terms of how it is currently employed,” he said. “So you can’t take a position and say I’m defending climate change on the basis of scientific consensus but I’m opposing GMOs and ignoring the scientific consensus. Either you listen to the scientists or you don’t. But


that’s the position I held, and it’s the position of Greenpeace and most environmental (groups) to this day.” Instead of relying on science, Lynas said anti-GMO campaigners manipulate science and cultural fears to drum up opposition to biotechnology. He said people in the developed world fear diseases such as cancer and autism, so GMO opponents spread information linking the technology to those ailments. Africans are alarmed by threats related to sex and reproduction, so GMO campaigners tailor the message as needed. “They (campaigners) talk about sterility. If you eat these crops you’ll be sterile and won’t be able to have children,” said Lynas, who recalled a comment from a Tanzanian farmer. “ ‘I know if we eat these GMOs that our children will turn homosexual’…. What’s really interesting about this misinformation is that it’s really culturally specific.” Lynas cited several case studies when arguing why environmentalists should support GMOs. Biotech research in Bangladesh indicates that B.t. technology could protect eggplants from insects, which would dramatically reduce the use of pesticides. Farmers in that country spray the important crop dozens of times during the growing season with older, organophosphate products while wearing flip-flops and no mask. Lynas also said GM technology could potentially safeguard cassava in Africa from plant diseases such as mosaic virus. He supports GM labelling because transparency builds trust. “If enough people say they want to know what’s in their food, you’ve got to tell them. You can’t tell them you don’t need to know (because it’s safe),” he said. “Their sense of fear is increased by the perception of nontransparency.... When you say to people, ‘do you want to know when GMOs are in your food supply,’ 80 to 90 percent of (people) say yes. You’ve got to deal with those facts.” Theresa Bergsma, general manager


of Manitoba Corn Growers, said farmers in her organization aren’t opposed to GM labelling. “In general, we don’t mind the concept,” she said. “However, we do know that there’s

been some pretty significant portions of commercial (agriculture) who have lobbied to be not included…. That’s where we have the concern.” Lynas said farmers should explain why they use GM crops and other agricultural technologies such as pesticides because the public doesn’t understand and assumes the worst. “I think the problem here is the nontransparency of farming,” he said. “Most people, the reason they oppose GMOs, is really because of herbicide tolerance. What they really (don’t) like is the idea that farmers are spraying their crops…. Farmers are evil, they just want to spray chem-

ical all over the place and destroy the natural environment. That’s what people think.” Keystone Agricultural Producers president Doug Chorley, said farm groups have a responsibility to prepare growers so that they are ready to talk about agricultural technology with their neighbours. “We’re not doing anything wrong. I don’t think we should be ashamed of what we do on our farms,” he said. “We need to be able to have a respectful discussion with people who have different views. That’s going to help the industry because farmers have … credibility with the public.”

The head of a cattle markets advisory firm says the United States must stop the shrinking of its cattle herd or risk beef becoming a niche market. |



Expand or be pushed off plates, producers told Pressure from competition | The stars are aligned and failure to grow could hurt domestic and export markets, says analyst CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — U.S. beef could be relegated to a “niche” item in 10 years if ranchers do not act to reverse the seven-year slide in the nation’s herd, says a leading U.S. cattle analytics firm. The herd is at the lowest level since the early 1950s. At stake are cattle and beef prices, which are forecast to surpass already record highs, and an expected surge in U.S. beef exports. “If our industry doesn’t respond to the economic signal that suggests we are in a bull market and grow, then we’ll become more of that niche or specialty market 10 or 20 years down the road,” said Randy Blach, chief

executive officer of CattleFax. He called beef a “centre-of-theplate” item but said that could change if the herd continues to decline amid increased pressure from competitively priced pork and chicken. Ranchers and feedlots recently focused on their profits after cattle prices in the U.S. Plains hit a record high $150 US per hundredweight, partly because of tight supplies. At the same time, prices for wholesale Choice and Select beef cuts peaked at a record $240.73 and $237.32, respectively, based on U.S. Department of Agriculture data. “The stars are aligned. We need to strike while the iron is hot. It’s time to

expand the nation’s cattle herd,” said Blach. Cattle and beef prices soared this winter after packers shut plants over the year-end holidays. Packers and feedlots had fewer cattle to draw from after bouts of harsh weather slowed animal weight gains. Moreover, years of drought sent corn costs to record highs in 2012, which helped whittle down the nation’s cattle herd to a 63-year low of 87.730 million head. A government report issued late last month suggests ranchers are replenishing their herds at a slower pace than expected as still expensive feed stretched into the first half of 2013 but

eased in the following months. Reduced supplies will put the industry on track to process 25 million head of heifers and steers this year compared to 30 million in 2000, which Blach said is forcing packing plants and feedlots to close. Cargill shuttered one of its Texas processing plants last year and plans to close a feedlot in the state this summer. National Beef Packing Co. set April 4 as the last day of operation at its facility in Brawley, California, citing scarce supplies. Producers who had been hurt by drought are now caught between cashing in on high cattle prices in the short term or gambling on the

future, knowing that anything can happen in the 2 1/2 years it takes to produce market-ready cattle. Blach said now is the time for producers to seize the moment, given more affordable feed and expanded U.S. beef access to global markets. He said the U.S. beef export market accounts for 11 percent of domestic beef production but $307 of the value of every head of cattle generated in the United States. Blach urged ranchers to seize the opportunity offered by a growing global population that over the next six years is predicted to swell by as many as 400 million people. “That spells opportunity,” he said.

Combination of farming technologies could take bite out of world hunger Determining best combinations | Study finds no-till combined with irrigation improves corn yields 67 percent CHICAGO (Reuters) — A tailored mix of farming technologies could significantly improve global food security by mid-century, according to a new study. Global corn yields could jump by as much as 67 percent by 2050, while wheat and rice yields may rise 20 percent if certain innovations are paired, the International Food Policy Research Institute said in a study titled Food Security in a World of Natural Resource Scarcity. Widespread adoption of technologies, including biotech crops, irrigation and no-till farming, could reduce world food prices by nearly half and cut food insecurity by as much as 36 percent, the institute said. The study weighed the impacts of 11 technologies on corn, rice and wheat yields, crop prices, trade and world hunger and found that certain combinations worked better than others. The findings could help identify practices that cash-strapped developing nations should target to combat hunger. “The reality is that no single agricultural technology or farming practice will provide sufficient food for the world in 2050,” said Mark Rosegrant, the study’s lead author. Farmers in the developing world would see the biggest overall yield gains. The institute said producers in the Middle East and parts of Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean should grow drought-tolerant grain, while heat-tolerant varieties offer promising yield results in North America and South Asia. Yield gains from specific technologies were higher when combined with irrigation. “We also find that a lot of these technologies can make really large impacts on the environmental side,” said co-author Claudia Ringler. “We find reductions in harvested area needed to feed the world. We find much better outcomes on calorie availability, the number of malnourished children and generally the population at risk of hunger, and they use less natural resources,” she said. The institute parsed the world’s arable farmland into 60 by 60 kilometre squares and gauged the impact of the technologies and practices on yields of corn, wheat and rice under two climate change scenarios. Positive yield findings were then plugged into an economic model that projected their impact on commodity prices, trade and food security. The institute found that no-till farming increased corn yields by 20 percent. However, yields could rise 67 percent when no-till is combined with irrigation. Corn yields in subSaharan Africa could double by 2050 with widespread adoption of irrigation and no-till. Drought-tolerant corn could bolster yields by 13 percent in the United States and China, which are the top two corn consumers. Heat-tolerant varieties of wheat

could raise grain yields by 17 percent, and, yields may jump 23 percent when combined with irrigation. Precision agriculture technology was found to boost wheat yields by 25 percent. Nutrient-efficient rice varieties could produce 22 percent more grain, the study said.

GM corn urgently needed for China’s food security: expert Government supports technology | The government is urged to promote public acceptance of GMO technology BEIJING, China (Reuters) — China will need to plant genetically modified corn if it is to cope with the growing challenge of food security, says a leading biotech scientist. The comment comes as the country continues to reject imports of GM corn from the United States. China’s rapid urbanization and rising wealth have triggered a rapid growth in demand for food and feed, and food security remains one of the government’s top concerns despite annual increases in crop yields. However, China has so far refused to allow planting of major GM food

crops because of public concern around the safety of the technology. The country has invested billions in research over the past 20 years and granted safety certificates for its first GM corn and rice varieties in 2009. However, it has still not authorized their commercial production, with papaya the only GM food allowed to be grown in the country. Demand for corn is set to outstrip domestic supply, making adoption of GMO technology more pressing, said Huang Dafang, professor at the Chinese Academy of Agricultural

Sciences’ Biotechnology Research Institute and a former member of the agriculture ministry’s biosafety committee. “Corn is currently the genetically modified crop we most urgently need to develop,” he said. Huang said corn imports are inevitable for China in the long run, but added that they should not be allowed to reach the level currently seen with soybeans, of which 80 percent are imported. “We need to speed up development (of GM corn) and we look forward to faster development,” he said.

China is already the world’s third largest corn buyer, importing more than three million tonnes in 2013. However, its imports were expected to be higher before Beijing rejected more than 600,000 tonnes of corn from the U.S. that contained Syngenta’s GM MIR 162 strain. Huang stressed that Beijing’s support for GM technology had not changed. If anything, the leadership was showing more clear-cut support for GMOs, he added. “Because the government believes that technology is needed to resolve the food security problem and pro-

mote sustainable development of agriculture, they are making their position known, and this is leading to a change in the direction of public opinion,” he said. The next step is for the government to pushing forward commercialization, he added. “Promoting commercialization, I believe, is currently more important than anything else because if you just talk about research and don’t promote commercialization, you cannot go further with research, and you also can’t make the public really believe that this is necessary.”

(Reuters) — Crowd funding has found the farm. AgFunder, an online platform for agriculture-related companies to seek capital through a form of crowdsourced fundraising, is launching its first campaign by focusing on a California agricultural data company. It said OnFarm of Fresno, California, plans to use the online platform to raise $400,000 in capital to develop a farm data software service. The offering is the first to go live on New York City-based AgFunder, which started up late last year and is offering both debt financing and equity offerings for individual and institutional investors in agriculture, said chief executive officer Rob Leclerc. The crowd-sourcing strategy received a boost from recent U.S. legislation that eases securities regulations to encourage funding of small businesses. Leclerc said AgFunder has $1 billion in more than 70 deals in the pipeline to match with investors who want to gain equity in agriculturalrelated companies. “It’s an interesting challenge,” he said. Most of the deals, such as OnFarm, are U.S.-based, but the online site will also be offering investments in Australia, Canada and South America, said Leclerc, a former partner at SeedRock Capital Group, a venture capital firm focused on natural resources and agriculture. Coming listings include a software company that uses high-resolution satellite imagery to analyze crop growth patterns to tailor water and fertilizer use and a company that has developed a natural barrier system for greenhouse pest control. Institutional and individual investors have increasingly been putting money into agriculture amid forecasts for a steep rise in global population and higher demand for food. As well, farmers and other agricultural players have been finding they can raise money for expansion and other needs through a variety of crowd funding platforms.

Weed issues worry patrons

Friendly farmers receive better service from suppliers: consultant

Leafy spurge | Federal pastures will require control initiatives



DAVIDSON, Sask. — Producers using a federal community pasture in Saskatchewan say they aren’t keen to take over land covered in noxious weeds. Neil Palmer, chair of the WillnerElbow pasture patrons’ committee, said 9,000 of the 23,000 acres in the Elbow pasture are covered with leafy spurge. That’s up from 3,000 acres a dozen years ago and despite about 20 years of grazing sheep in the pasture to try to control the weed. Under Ottawa’s divestiture plan, users are supposed to assume control of the pasture after the 2015 grazing season. Palmer said patrons can’t also assume the cost of controlling an inherited liability. “This is not the patrons’ responsibility,” he said. T h e f e d e ra l g ov e r n m e nt ha s already backed away from some of its control efforts, including plans last year to cut funding to the sheep control program. Palmer responded by putting pressure on Ottawa to pay up. “Otherwise, by 2016 there would have been three full years of no control,” he said.

The former Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration estimated that pasture capacity drops by 100 cow-calf pairs for every year without control, he added. “We have 1,200 head capacity and within 10 to 12 years that would be gone.” The federal government came up with funding and issued a tender for sheep in May. Tenders for the 2014 and 2015 control programs have already been issued and close Feb. 27, according to Public Works Canada. The proposal request identifies leafy spurge as the main problem, with control of wild rose and western snowberry also required. It also asks for a minimum of 1,000 ewes and a maximum of 2,500. The successful applicant will supply one experienced herder to live on site in a camping facility and one or two backups, trained dogs to move and control the sheep and guardian dogs for predator control. Rams may be allowed subject to the approval of Agriculture Canada. The sheep are to be in the pasture by mid-May and out by the end of September. The contract value is not to exceed $38,000 for each season.

Palmer said the Saskatchewan Sheep Development Board had previously operated the program, but the board has said it would require more money to bring in more sheep for better control. He said 2,000 sheep are the minimum to obtain any control. At one time, more than 4,000 head were grazed. “There is a lot of cost involved,” he said, which is why patrons want the liability issue addressed before they take over. Palmer said control is essential because the weed is moving toward Douglas Provincial Park and Lake Diefenbaker. Saskatchewan agriculture minister Lyle Stewart has said pasture users should not have to take over a p a s t u re i n t hat c o n d i t i o n a n d pledged help, likely in the form of money for chemical control. Palmer is concerned about that, noting it will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and kill more than just weeds. Elbow pasture is home to one of the established populations of western spiderwort, an endangered perennial plant. Research shows repeated application of chemicals is required for years to control new growth.

Some big farmers think they have the size and power to force the best deals from suppliers and business contacts. And some small farmers think they’ll never get anything but a rotten deal from agriculture service providers. Both of those groups are wrong, says farm management consultant Brent VanKoughnet. “Good businesses are picking who they like to deal with,” VanKoughnet, who also farms near Carman, Man., told the CropConnect conference Feb. 19. “Size does not make up for the painin-the-ass factor.” VanKoughnet said large farmers have been shocked to find that some of the best farm service companies won’t do business with them if they have had a difficult relationship in the past. Those companies have decided to focus on serving their best customers and don’t have time to deal with difficult customers. “Lots of big customers who thought that they had the leverage … to say ‘come to us because we’re big and important,’ it ain’t happening,” said VanKoughnet. He said farmers sometimes think

that different business rules apply to them and they act accordingly. Having lots of acres has also made some farmers think they can squeeze suppliers. However, VanKoughnet said some companies just won’t deal with fractious customers, regardless of size. The flip side of this situation is the small farmer who thinks he will never get a decent price or deal from top suppliers because of the limited dollar value of the business he represents. VanKoughnet said small farmers can get good deals from the best suppliers — if they’re easy to work with. He took that approach himself with his local fertilizer dealer, and it worked. “I wanted to be the simplest customer they have because I (have only) 700 acres and do a bunch of wacky stuff and I need that (service) close by,” said VanKoughnet. “It turns out that by being one of the easiest guys for them to deal with, I get 3,000 acre service, I get 3,000 acre price and it’s a good deal for both.” VanKoughnet told farmers to try to be up front and clear with suppliers and service providers about what they expect but to also try to be an attractive customer. Business relationships are more interdependent today than in the past, so being cooperative rather than combative is often key to getting good deals.





Slow going | Two parts of a vintage dairy barn were lifted and moved to a new home, but not without problems along the way. | Barb Glen photos Two sections of a 1938 dairy barn, at 110 feet long apiece, were lifted from their home on a site formerly owned by Vogelaar Brothers near Pincher Creek, Alta., and readied for relocation by Holmes Building Movers of Stavely, Alta. Al Burling of the Holmes crew, top left, manned one of the pilot cars. Despite the frozen ground, half of the giant barn hit a soft spot, requiring additional measures to get it out of the field. The trip along Highway 785, across the Oldman Dam and onto a new foundation at Heritage Acres, an antique farm equipment museum and display, took two days to complete. Cold weather caused equipment problems: one truck lost a differential, and hydraulics on various wheels were unco-operative, so a farm tractor was called into action. The barns and equipment spent the night at the junction of highways 785 and 3 when it was deemed too late on Feb. 4 to lift the necessary electrical lines and negotiate a railway crossing. The two parts of the barn completed the 16 kilometre trek on Feb. 5. They will now get new roofing, paint and other refurbishes.

CREATING A LIFE from a transferred embryo of no more than 150 cells is a miracle every time a new calf or lamb is born. The first calf resulting from an embryo transfer was produced experimentally in 1951, but it took more than 20 years to commercialize the science. | BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH, CALGARY BUREAU

How embryo technology revolutionized an industry


major breakthrough occurred when calf embryos could be frozen and used later. “At this point, there is no expiry date,” said veterinarian Roger Davis of Davis-Rairdon International at Crossfield, Alta. Davis, who works exclusively with cattle, and Ilena Wenger and Lynn Tait of the small ruminant practice OC Flock Management at Bowden, Alta., are among the few veterinarians in Canada to focus on artificial breeding using embryo collection and transfer. OC Flock Management also collects semen from sheep and goats. Davis was among the early adopters of the technology, which had picked up traction with the introduction of Continental cattle from Europe. Exporting a tank of frozen embryos encased in liquid nitrogen was cheaper and safer than shipping live animals from France to Canada. He has been transferring embryos since 1980. In the early days, embryo collection involved surgery and general anesthetic. It was invasive, and the cow was likely infertile after two sessions because of scar tissue forming in the reproductive area. Non-surgical methods were developed in the late 1970s, allowing numerous collections from elite females. Until freezing was perfected, embryos were transferred fresh from the donor cow to recipients that had received hormone treatments to bring them into estrus at the same time. There were days when they collected from three donors and had no viable eggs to pass on, and consequently, no pregnancies. Other times, they might collect 50 embryos and would not have enough recipients, so the eggs were thrown away. The technology to successfully freeze embryos was introduced in 1975, but it took a few years to train veterinarians and make it commercially viable. It was still far from perfect. “At that time, we would discard about 30 percent of the embryos we froze after we thawed them,” Davis said. “If we achieved a 40 to 50 percent pregnancy rate, we were quite excited. “The advent of freezing was probably the biggest breakthrough in embryo transfer because now it could be more efficiently done,” he said. “You could set up recipients or you could collect embryos and freeze them and have a bank of embryos as back-up plans to transfer in case you

did not get enough fresh embryos.” Freezing and thawing techniques have improved significantly, which makes it easier to work in the field where conditions are less than ideal. The adoption of ultrasound also allowed veterinarians to check implanted females at 28 to 30 days. They can also do a manual palpation to confirm a pregnancy at around 40 days. The cattle can be synchronized again if there is no pregnancy and another attempt made. One bovine embryo is typically implanted. Veterinarians do not want male and female twins because the female is likely to be a freemartin, which is infertile. The male hormones develop sooner in freemartins and suppress the development of the female reproductive system. Improved synchronization has also simplified super ovulation of the donors so that more eggs are released and ready for fertilization, usually by artificial insemination. The embryos are collected from a cow’s uterus at around seven days of pregnancy and contain about 150 cells. The average yield is now seven or

eight freezable quality embryos, which are referred to as grade one embryos. Those that do not freeze as well can be transferred fresh, so a veterinarian may capture 10 for every cow that is super ovulated. The technology has upgraded cattle around the world. Research has proven there is no disease risk when embryos are properly washed in a special enzyme solution. Each is protected by a shell called the zona pellucida. This shell cannot be cracked or penetrated if embryos are being exported. “Many countries around the world accept washed embryos, providing that shell around the embryo has not been violated,” Davis said. The embryo transfer industry is highly regulated. The Canadian Embryo Transfer Association (CETA) governs practitioners with an intense certification program that demands regular upgrades to maintain high standards of work. “It was the first certification program in the world, and a lot of vets from other countries use ours as a

template,” Davis said. Almost all the work done at OC Flock Management is exported. There are multiple layers of oversight and regulation because the veterinarians perform surgery, offer quarantine areas and export embryos. The current facility was built in 2003 with certification from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, CETA and the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association. It is also the only Canadian unit to receive certification to export sheep and goat embryos to the European Union. The clinic is among the few that works with sheep and goats, and veterinarians regularly travel to collect and implant embryos. They also train international veterinarians and students from the University of Calgary’s veterinary faculty. The work is different from what’s done at bovine clinics because sheep and goat reproductive systems are different. “You superovulate the same way, but collection is very different,” said Wenger. “Everything we do in sheep centres

around the fact that we can’t get through the cervix and deal with reproductive technologies in the same way as cattle.” The clinic, which started in 1996, collects semen and performs laparoscopic embryo collection. Sheep and goats respond to light so their breeding time is seasonal and work is hectic from August to February, when the animals are responsive. The work is painstaking and relies on good technique to ensure successful pregnancies. The females go under general anesthetic, their lower bellies are shaved and they receive a small incision to reach the uterus. The incision is made in a different place with each collection. The entire procedure takes about half an hour. The females can be rebred and deliver lambs successfully. “We will flush three times in a season, and you can flush a total of five or six times in the lifetime of a sheep before you see issues, and that is with an experienced surgical team and with very good surgical tech-

nique,” Wenger said. The number of embryos varies, but prolific breeds can yield up to 10 to 12 embryos while others produce six to eight. Pregnancy rates are comparable to cattle. Fresh embryos can result in a successful pregnancy 70 percent of the time while frozen embryos catch up 50 percent of the time. Veterinarians put two embryos in recipients because sheep and goats generally have twins. “You need to be very particular on your recipient selection,” she said. “Recipients are usually selected for their maternal abilities. They’ll have good milk, they’ll be experienced so you know they will raise a lamb well.” Conception also depends on the animal, the environment, when the embryos were collected and if the animals were under stress. The sheep are left alone for 30 days to see if conception is successful. Goats are also collected via surgery, although some new work on cervical flushes has been conducted. “I haven’t seen the research yet to show we get as good a recovery rate,” she said. Embryo freezing is handled in the same way as cattle. However, only one bovine embryo is placed in a straw while one to four sheep embryos may be inserted. Canadian livestock genetics are valued around the world because the animals are vigorous and healthy. International clients are also looking for the country’s considerable genetic diversity, including sheep breeds that aren’t found elsewhere.

GUELPH SCIENTISTS DEVELOP EMBRYO FREEZING TECHNIQUE Two Guelph scientists have developed embryo freezing techniques which may contribute to a breakthrough in female livestock reproductive capacity. According to a report in the University of Guelph News Bulletin, Prof. J.W. Macpherson and Dr. Paul Fiser of the university’s department of animal and poultry science have been working on mice embryos to develop the technique. Dr. Fiser has developed a technique of freezing the embryos after they have been surgically removed from the donor animal and reculturing them with about an 80 percent survival rate. The donor animals are injected with hormones to make them produce many times the normal number of ova. The embryos are placed in a solution which protects them and at the same time dehydrates them as the temperature is lowered to minus 198 degrees Celcius. Success depends on the composition of the solution and the rate of freezing. When the embryos are thawed and recultured they start to grow normally and can be implanted in a host animal where they will become normal fetuses. Pilot studies have been so successful that the two scientists will begin research on bovine embryos next.

Asian GM crop acres small but growing U.S. numbers steady | More than 430 million acres of GM crops were grown in 2013

Million-dollar farms in U.S. on the rise

(Reuters) — The growth of genetically modified crops in the United States appears to have hit a plateau, according to an industry report. Meanwhile, farmers are accelerating plantings in Asia, although it still remains a much smaller market. The International Ser vice for Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA), a pro-biotech industry organization, said the world’s farmers grew a record 433 million acres of GM crops in 2013, up three percent from 2012, with American and Brazilian farmers continuing to be the dominant users. Critics of GM crops accuse the ISAAA of inflating figures in the European Union and developing countries to show growing support for biotech crops. Particularly in the European Union, opponents of biotech crops say they lead to increased pesticide use and environmental damage and have not been proven safe for human and animal consumption. Backers say the crops are no different than non-GM crops. “Biotech crops are demonstrating their global value as a tool for resource-poor farmers who face decreased water supplies and increased weed and pest pressures, and the effects of climate change will only continue to expand the need for

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — The proportion of U.S. farms with annual sales and government payments of $1 million or more doubled in the five years through 2012. The figures were part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s census of agriculture, which surveys all U.S. farms and ranches and the people who operate them every five years. Results of the census form the backbone of U.S. agricultural policy. The census showed average farm size rose to 434 acres from 418 acres five years earlier. Most of the decline came in medium-sized farms, the USDA said. The number of large and very small farms did not change significantly. The number of farms in the United States fell 4.3 percent to about 2.1 million, continuing a long-term decline. Four percent of U.S. farms had sales and government payments of $1 million or more in 2012, compared to two percent in the previous census. However, most U.S. farms are considered small, with 75 percent generating annual sales of less than $50,000. Agricultural sales per farm averaged $187,000 in 2012, up more than $52,000 from 2007, or 39 percent. U.S. farms sold nearly $395 billion in agricultural products in 2012, up 33 percent from five years earlier.

American growers planted 173 million acres of genetically modified crops in 2013, up slightly from the previous year. | FILE PHOTO this technology,” said ISAAA chair Clive James. U.S. farmers planted an estimated 173 million acres last year with corn, soybeans, cotton, canola, alfalfa and other crops that have been genetically modified, the report said. That was up less than one percent over 2012 plantings. In Brazil, farmers planted 99.5 million acres to GM soy, corn and cotton, up 10 percent from 2012, according to ISAAA. While growth was hitting a plateau in the U.S, where GM crops were introduced in 1996, plantings in

China grew five percent last year to 10 million acres, the report said. ISAAA said the global value of GM crops was estimated at $15.6 billion in 2013, up from $14.6 billion in 2012. The EU continues to be a difficult market for GM crops. Five EU countries planted a record 365,000 acres of GM corn last year, up 15 percent from 2012, the ISAAA report said. Farmers in Spain were the largest users of the B.t. corn, planting 94 percent of the total crop in the EU. Not all countries where farmers have been trying GM crops have

expanded their use. GM crop plantings dropped seven percent in Canada last year compared to 2012, but that was because canola acreage dropped in reaction to strong wheat prices and rotational issues. Plantings held steady or dropped in South Africa, Australia and Mexico. Critics of GM crops say the numbers are dubious, and the report is more promotional than factual. “ The numbers are incredibly doubtful ... totally doctored,” said Anuradha Mittal, executive director of the Oakland Institute, a Californiabased think-tank and policy group that focuses on global agriculture. “It is an industry publication and they use fake numbers to show a groundswell of use of GMO crops,” she said. “But the evidence is coming in around the world that shows the crops are failing and farmers are turning away.” The Africa Centre for Biosafety accused ISAAA last year of inflating plantings in South Africa and said its numbers were at odds with a trend there away from GMO plantings. As well, critics accused the ISAAA in 2009 of inflating numbers for crop plantings in the EU. ISAAA spokesperson John Dutcher said the group would not comment on the complaints.

Individual nozzle controls save money, says grower BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

Individual nozzle on-off is controlled by a box in your cab that gives you the ability to shut off individual nozzles. This is much deeper than sectional control. GARNET WELYKHOLOWA CAPSTAN REPRESENTATIVE


Pinpointing precision farming So long, section control | Precision farming is easier with individual nozzle control BY RON LYSENG



BRANDON — Growers accustomed to sectional control on their sprayer booms might want to consider a move to individual nozzle control. “The Capstan Pinpoint system takes everything one step further. It goes inside what you now have as sectional control,” said Capstan representative Garnet Welykholowa. “Individual nozzle on-off is controlled by a box in your cab that gives you the ability to shut off individual nozzles. This is much deeper than sectional control.” The system has been available for years and has been offered as an option on Case IH sprayers. It manages flow and pressure by turning individual nozzles on and off at high speeds. “So if you’re driving into a pie shape situation or you have irregular fields, PinPoint shuts off the nozzles it needs to so you don’t waste chemical and you don’t damage crop with overspray,” said Welykholowa. He said turn compensation is one of the system’s main features. As booms become wider, the outside nozzles naturally travel faster around a turn while the inside nozzles move slowly or almost stop. Those high speed outer nozzles put less product on the crop while the inside nozzles put on too much. “We now have individual control of the solenoid on each nozzle,” he said. He said the PinPoint box processes GPS readings on the speed of the sprayer and the radius of the turn. It

Individual nozzle control gives the controller the ability to apply a different spray volume through each nozzle on the boom. Combining this factor with a GPS signal and PinPoint software allows the sprayer to put down a constant spray rate through the turn, regardless of boom size.

Sterling Hilton of Strathmore, Alta., who has two full spraying seasons with his Capstan PinPoint system on a 120 foot boom, is a meticulous record keeper. “We’ve seen anywhere from a six percent saving in chemical up to 14 percent saving, depending on the shape of the field,” he said. “That’s versus the sectional control sprayer we had before.” Hilton said many of his fields are cut into odd shapes by canals running through them from the Western Irrigation District, which is why the PinPoint is paying its way for him. “It has this turn compensation feature which I really like,” he said. “When I make a turn with this 120 foot boom, the system puts more product down toward the outside where the nozzles are travelling way faster. At the same time, it cuts back on the spray from nozzles on the inside of the sweep where the boom is running slower. The result is that I get the same amount of product across the whole arc of the boom. “There’s one other thing I like. They give you a separate screen in the cab so you can monitor everything that’s happening with your nozzles. I really like that idea.” Some farmers at Manitoba’s Ag Days in January expressed their concern that a control system so sophisticated that it could control individual nozzles must be difficult to program and manage. “Yes, it does seem complex,” Hilton said. “But they set everything up for us when they delivered it. I really haven’t had to play with it much at all. It certainly hasn’t been a nightmare in terms of learning or actually operating it. It’s easy.”


uses that data to calculate the amount of spray each nozzle should put out to maintain a constant application rate by all nozzles as the sprayer goes through the turn. “That’s not all. We can talk to each nozzle to tell it how to compensate for varying field conditions,” he said. “If you want a higher rate behind the wheels, you tell those nozzles to put on 1.2 times the normal rate, or whatever it is you want. Or on your headland passes, you might want those outer two or three nozzles to put out more product. We know that weeds and insects encroach

from the ditches, so you can let those outer nozzles take care of that for you.” He said reducing effort and cost also brings other side benefits, including nozzle-valve diagnostics. This component monitors each nozzle independently, which lets the operator know if there’s a problem and identifies which nozzle is in trouble. Nozzle inspection is simplified by the remote key fob, which allows the operator to test each nozzle individually without turning on the entire boom or running back and

forth to the cab. The operator stands behind the sprayer and runs down the line of nozzles one by one. The system’s four pre-set function keys customize the configurations in advance for fence rows, wheel tracks and potholes. “We have customers who have kept careful records of their costs,” he said. “By adding PinPoint to their existing sectional control system, they tell us they’ve saved from four to 15 percent by eliminating overlap.” For more information, contact Garnet Welykholowa at 306-5271384 or visit

Individual nozzle control eliminates double application, something that can’t be achieved with sectional control. It also lets the operator monitor and control the function of individual nozzles. If a nozzle plugs, the operator knows which one it is. | RON LYSENG PHOTOS





Three equipment award winners from Canada AE50 Awards | The competition celebrates the professional tools that drive improvements to agricultural equipment SASKATOON NEWSROOM

LOUISVILLE, KY. — Agricultural engineering produces the technologies of growth, from farm machinery to processing to husbandry technologies. The American Society of Agricultural and Biotechnological Engineers gather each year to discuss new technology and its place in agricultural production. During that meeting they hand out 50 awards for the best new products from the previous season. Ahead of this year’s meeting in Louisville, Kentucky, a panel of ASABE members had a lot new tools to consider. Three of the AE50 winners are Canadian and will be featured in greater depth in future Western Producer pages. From Calgary, OPIsystems’ wireless grain storage system remotely monitors bin temperature and moisture. One solar-powered, wireless collection and transmission device automatically feeds data from up to eight grain bins. The system feeds the information to an iPad application or to an internet connection at the bin site. For remote locations, a cellular connection is used to pass on the information. Winnipeg based MacDon and one of its OEM components suppliers, Kondex, won an award for the addition of swather canvas drive rollers that drive more effectively than the traditional rubber clad tubes. Kondex, a Wisconsin company, designed a tube with built-up metal ribs that contain tungsten carbide particles. The ribs are wear resistant and able to maintain traction on the draper material even in wet conditions, working in canola. Saskatoon’s NORAC was awarded an AE50 for its Hybrid Mode Crop Sensing System. Sprayer boom height is critical to proper application of crop chemicals and fertilizers. Too low and crop coverage is compromised and plants are potentially injured by the boom, too high and losses to wind and off target, uneven application takes place. Using ultrasonic sensors, the new spray height control process manages the distance to crop in adverse conditions, such as thin or lodged crop, or in row crops where significant amount of open soil is present. Typically, operators take manual control of the boom height in these conditions. But the Hybrid Mode relies on multiple sensors and measures the overall crop and sets an average height that can be used when there is no crop detected. While not a Canadian product, the Gleaner S88, Class 8, transverse rotary combine is the lightest in its category and has spent significant time being tested in Western Canada. Kevin Bien of Agco told engineers at the Louisville event earlier this month that for producers on the Canadian Prairies and U.S. Great Plains, the machine’s light weight, as much as 14,000 pounds less, means less rubber is needed to keep the big machines floating along.

“With the big grain heads that farmers are needing these days it also means that question of whether to go to tracks gets sorted out. Don’t need them.” To get the weight down, the machine has a welded, uni-body type frame. The S88 looks short to the eye for a large combine. The transverse rotary system puts most of the threshing up front, behind the cab, running across the machine’s width, rather than down its length. The transverse rotary uses more of its rotor and concave area for thresh-

ing than others in the Class. The 9.8 litre, seven cylinder engine is lighter than many 400 to 450 horsepower designs. The overall weight savings means the unit needs 32 less horsepower to roll through the field and that translates into increased harvesting operations power and fuel savings. A variable height chopper floor allows for better straw management in large cereal crops. For more on the AE50 award winners, visit crops as well as related videos.

The Boerner grain divider was invented a century ago to solve the problem of plump kernels rolling to the top and heavy kernels going to the bottom when large samples were poured to make smaller portions. The all-metal machine was so accurate that its use has been written into grain handling regulations. However, the $1,800 price tag has discouraged many from owning them, as has its relatively heavy weight at 32 pounds. “A lot of guys in the business know they should be splitting their samples for better accuracy, but they just won’t spend the $1,800 to buy a Boerner,” said Jason Diehl of Dimo’s Labtronics in Winnipeg, the largest supplier of grain testing equipment in Western Canada. “But they will spend $450 on our new grain divider. The Dimo Divider is modelled after the original Boerner, but we’ve upgraded certain aspects of the Boerner. Diehl said the new design is cheaper, weighs less and is more accurate. “The Boerner has an accuracy of plus or minus one percent on a 1,000 gram sample of hard red spring wheat. Our splitter has an accuracy of plus or minus 0.5 percent on the same 1,000 gram sample.” Diehl came to this conclusion by dumping 100 big buckets of canola, peas and hard red spring wheat through both the Dimo splitter and the Boerner. “One thing we learned is that larger seeds like peas have more variation or a wider range within a sample than smaller seeds like canola, regardless of which splitter they go through.” He said the Dimo splitter is as easy to use as the Boerner. A five gallon bucket of grain is poured into the white funnel at the top and the slide is pulled to open the gate and let the grain fall to the cone. The precise geometry of the cone and the chutes catching the grain ensures that the dispersal is uniform into both sample compartments. The original splitter catches grain using 38 chutes around the cone, but the Dimo splitter achieves better accuracy with only 16 chutes. “Quebec is the only province with their own agency for regulating the grain handling industry. Until now, they have used the Boerner exclusively, but now that they’ve tested our unit, they’re buying our divider,” he said. “We’ve sold the Dimo divider to Pioneer Grain, individual grain elevators, seed companies and third party inspection companies like Certispect, Intertek and SGS.” For more information, contact Jason Diehl at 204-772-6998 or visit

Ammonia applicator pumps fast with single cooling system

Kverneland farm equipment to make debut in West

The Accuflow Vortex pumping system can apply up to 80 US gallons a minute BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A new anhydrous ammonia system puts nitrogen down more quickly than previously possible. Raven Industries’ applied technology division released its new flow cooler and pumping system in Louisville, Kentucky, earlier this month. The Accuflow Vortex is the first on the market to have high capacity using a single cooler. Matt Burkhart of Raven said the new tool is aimed at commercial applicators and larger acreage farmers such as those in Western Canada. Gary Esselink introduced the new product at t he Nat iona l Fa r m Machinery Show. “When you want to apply more anhydrous faster and at colder temperatures, this is how you do it, and we kept the complexity and the weight down,” Esselink said. “We can get to 50 US gallons a minute and beyond. Add the pump and we get over 80 gallons.” It almost doubles what the company could previously do with a pair of coolers. The result is applying 300 pounds


of nitrogen at 10 m.p.h. on a 60 foot tool bar. When used on an 80 foot single pass drill at five m.p.h., it can apply more nitrogen than most producers would care to invest in a canola crop. The company surveyed commercial operators and large farms from the Midwest to Western Canada to determine what was needed to improve their application processes, and Esselink said almost all of them wanted more capacity, better serviceability and more safety features. The new design is much smaller than previous models. It has few pipe fittings and joints — typically 30 instead of 50 — and the company has moved to groove lock connectors rather than a two-wrench pipe fitting connection. “There’s a lot of new software, too,” he said. “Windows for application

are getting tighter with more land to operate. There isn’t any room, especially if you are (banding).” The new single cooler comes with a new Accuflo HP Plus pump that is widely variable and allows for highly precise application of the anhydrous ammonia. Ne w s a f e t y f e at u re s i n c l u d e improved gauges and stainless steel pipe and a pressure transducer that alerts the operator if an over-pressure situation is developing. Operators can see from the cab if the valves are open, and a secondary relief valve allows for system draining in about a half hour compared to the two or three hours it takes for the system to bleed off. Raven said the unit is ISObus compatible, meaning that many current cab information systems and controllers can work in conjunction with the new design. It said the units will begin shipping in the next couple of weeks. The Accuflow Vortex costs $5,895 US for the new cooler with a single controller valve, $6,295 when a second, on-off valve is added and $10,295 with the new pump. For more information, visit www.


LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Kubota continues to expand its role in the world’s agriculture market. The Japanese company was once known in North American circles for its well made, orange utility tractors, which got bigger over time. Tractors got tracks, hoes and other tools and construction equipment grew. Two years ago, Kubota bought the Norwegian farm equipment maker Kverneland. Known better in Europe than in North America, Kverneland has been headquartered in Canada in Drummondville, Que. T h i s y e a r, t h e N o r w e g i a n machines will begin to make their way across Canada through Kubota representatives and existing Kverneland dealers. As well, Kubota will show up in Kverneland operations. Known best in Canada for its forage equipment, Kverneland makes precision fertilizer spreaders and European-type seeding equipment, as well as trailed sprayers and a wide variety of tillage tools. John Gilland of Kubota said the company plans to create a variety of new “ag implement sales opportunities that will enhance and compliment our upcoming expansion into

The firm is best known for its forage equipment. | KVERNELAND PHOTO higher horsepower (tractors).” The company now markets tractors of up to 118 to 135 h.p. The Association of American Equipment Manufacturers has predicted continued sales growth of tractors in that range, and farm machinery companies expect it to be a bright spot for the near future as livestock production remains profitable. Several companies suggested at farm machinery events in Louisville, Kentucky, earlier this month that they expected to hear of further farm machinery company acquisitions from Kubota. A month ago, Reuters reported that Kubota president Yasuo Masumoto was seeking a joint venture to produce tractors of at least 200 h.p. Last December, Kubota announced plans to build a French factory for 170 h.p. tractors, which it expected to open a year from this spring.

INNISFAIL, Alta. — Ron Pidskalny says he doesn’t accept a job unless there is a challenge. As the new head of the Canadian Forage and Grasslands Association, he has taken on a massive challenge. With few options for earning money for the young organization, it’s Pidskalny’s job to find ways to squeeze wealth from the $13 billion worth of grass, forages and hay grown across Canada. “We have to have society see value in what we have. It’s all about finding a market for what we have. What we provide at the moment is value to society without charge. Society doesn’t see a need at the moment to pay for that value,” Pidskalny said during a recent meeting of the Alberta Forage Industry Network, which belongs to the national forage organization. “The main issue we have as an organization is we’re a crop without a checkoff, which means we don’t have any sustainable source of funding.” Most of the money for running the provincial and federal associations comes from memberships, donations, grants and matching government funds. Pidskalny plans to approach companies and organizations that espouse sustainable values and beliefs and who think it’s important to pay farmers for maintaining their grass and forage land. “We can offer the exchange of their brand value for their financial support.” He said company literature might say they believe in sustainability, but often it’s only lip service. Pidskalny was once hired by the pulse industry to try increasing the use of pulses in food products. Large companies liked the crop’s

nitrogen-fixing story, but their only question was cost. It costs three times as much to replace cornstarch w ith pulse starch. “When they heard it was three times the price, it was not something they were willing to deal with.” Now head of the forage group, Pidskalny must convince governments, industry and individuals that it is important to pay producers to maintain the ecologically important grasslands. Canada has 33 million acres of cultivated forage and 36 million acres of native or unimproved pastures and rangeland. It contributes to the health of the land through erosion control, carbon sequestration, pollination, recreation and wildlife habitat. “The goal right now is to approach organizations who can look at our mission, vision and values and see some kind of connection to their mission, vision and values.” The national and provincial forage organizations agreed on three priorities in December: • Finding money for the ecological goods and services that forages provide • Convincing farmers to seed forage not only on their poor land, but on good land as well • Increasing research for forages Only a handful of scientists are working on forage research, which means producers have little hope of finding new and improved grass and forage varieties. Producers believe there is a need for a national independent forage variety-testing program, but such a program would likely cost $2 million to establish and maintain. Pidskalny knows a lot of work is needed to convince governments and industry to invest in perennial crops such as forages, which will likely return little money to breeders and research companies.


Growers monitoring clubroot BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

The Manitoba Canola Growers Association is taking action to detect clubroot at low levels of infection now that it is officially present in the province. The association said in a news release that it wants to establish a specialized molecular laboratory as part of a Plant Pathogen Surveillance Initiative, which would help detect clubroot when concentrations of disease spores in soil samples are low. “2013 was the first time Manitoba has experienced CR-positive plant samples, so the time to act is now,” said president Ed Rempel. Last fall, Manitoba Agriculture con-

firmed the presence of clubroot symptoms on plants in two canola fields, based on samples taken in August and September. It was only a matter of time before canola roots were found with clubroot symptoms because scientists detected clubroot DNA in Manitoba soil samples in 2012. The province didn’t release the locations where plants showed symptoms of clubroot, but soil samples from other regions indicate disease spores are present in canola fields across the province, said Anastasia Kubinec, a Manitoba Agriculture oilseed specialist. “It’s everywhere. When we say it’s 50 kilometres from your farm, that’s the truth.”

Saddle fit becoming priority Horse comfort | Equine educator says more saddle buyers are putting the horse’s welfare before looks



A revolution is happening in the saddle fitting industry. “Horses are changing and saddles are trying catch up,” said Jonathan Field, a horse trainer, equine educator and saddle designer. Based in Abbotsford, B.C., and the James Creek Ranch near Merritt, B.C., Field spends a good part of his year travelling to horse events in North America to conduct equine clinics. He told a seminar at the Feb. 14-16 Equine Expo in Saskatoon that the saddle fitting industry is quickly changing as it adapts to meet the physical purpose-bred evolution occurring in horses. “There is a change happening in horses,” he said. “They are getting better bred and getting bred specifically for what you’re asking of them. Their backs are getting wider and they’re stronger muscularly.” Also fueling the revolution has been a mind shift across the horse industry that is putting the comfort of the horse on par and even ahead of the rider. “We’re going through a ver y unique time where people are starting to shift their thinking about horsemanship,” Field said. “Before it might have been, ‘it doesn’t fit my horse but I don’t care. I never even thought about it.’ Now people are caring enough because look at the industry today: it’s people who are recreationally based. They don’t want to go out and hurt their horse. If they see white hairs on their horse, they care.… They don’t want it (saddle) to be poor fitting, like a bad fitting (horse) shoe.” The saddle tree is the biggest area affecting horse comfort, and it is also seeing the most change and growth as horses’ backs broaden. Measurement, angles and material all go into making a quality tree. It usually doesn’t fit because it is too narrow in the front, which pinches the horse’s shoulders. The ground seat is important to the rider’s comfort, and how it’s built up determines how narrow it is. This in turn affects knee position and the spread of the legs. Another design issue is twisted stirrups, which help minimize a rider’s knee pain. Before buying a saddle, it’s vital to first determine the kind of riding

Cattle sector creating code of practice for feedlots

Saddle buyers should consider several key questions: • What is the purpose of the saddle? • Does it fit my horse? • Does it fit me? • What is the design and quality of this saddle? Fields said most saddle buyers

look at the list in reverse. “They just get to question No. 4 first and they don’t go past. ‘How does it look? Looks good, Oh, it’s western, awesome,’ ” he said. Field said saddle buyers often sacrifice themselves and their horses’ comfort for the least functional element. “It’s like buying a pair of bad fitting boots. You only do that until the boots start to hurt long enough and

you’re like, ‘I’d put anything on right now. I don’t care how they look.’ Then eventually you go, ‘how does this help my feet long term and how does this help my horse’ and then finally you go to the look of it.” Field said he’s also learned the hard way and has gone through a few saddles over the years. “I want all my worlds,” he said. “I want it to fit my horse, fit me, look good and have quality.”

RED DEER — The National Cattle Feeders Association is drawing up a feedlot code of practice to help feedlot owners assess animal health and welfare, environmental status, transportation and employee training. Packers and retailers already have animal welfare standards, which feedlots are expected to follow. “There are things happening and if we don’t get ahead of it, somebody else will do it for us,” said veterinarian Dr. Joyce Van Donkersgoed, who works with feedlot clients in southern Alberta. An advisory committee with representatives from the cattle feeders staff, producers, veterinarians, animal behaviorists, packers, retailers, the SPCA, the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association and welfare auditors met in January to draft an assessment checklist. Ethical behavior and proper care of animals is a good way to do business, as well as meet processor requirements, Donkersgoed said at the Alberta Beef Industry conference held in Red Deer Feb. 19-21. “As feedlot owners and operators do you know what is going on in your yard?” she said. The assessment is expected to look at animal loading, transport, condition of animals upon arrival, willful acts of abuse and humane care for sick and injured animals, as well as staff behaviour and training. Feedlots often hire inexperienced staff not trained in cattle handling or care. Low stress cattle handling training is essential in feedlots, she said. “You need to support your staff and I really hope you get involved,” she said. Canadian codes of practice for beef and dairy cattle already have requirements for feed and water provisions, pain management and euthanasia. This assessment package is expected to zero in on specific situations that can happen in a feed yard, such as dealing with mud and snow, cattle behaviour in pens and handling of sick animals. Staff needs to be trained on handling pregnant heifers in the pens, knowing when animals have been injured, when they are in pain or how to handle emergency care. Willful acts of abuse will also be addressed. “Processors have zero tolerance for acts of abuse. If they do an audit and they see willful acts of abuse, you automatically don’t pass your audit. As owners I hope you deal with this when these situations occur,” Van Donkersgoed said.





Not all animal research created equal



recently adopted two cats from a humane society. Part of the process involved signing a declaration form that included the promise to seek veterinary care if the cats become ill and not let them roam outside. What caught me off guard was the promise to not involve the cat in “live animal research.” This statement struck me as odd. Nearly ever y day, I read about, observe and use the benefits of animal research in my role as a veterinarian who practices pathology. In fact, you would be hard pressed to find any health professional who doesn’t use the results from animal research in their practices. It is through animal research that society has the benefit of medications, surgical procedures and advanced diagnostic tests. So why was this included in the adoption form? Clearly this allencompassing statement is a reflection of what society perceives animal research to be. “Animal research” has become a pair of dirty words. We’ve all seen the horrific images of historical laboratory animal studies where, no doubt, the animals suffered what we would perceive as pain and cruelty. However, I challenge you to open your mind to the broad scope of modern research that uses live animals. The Canadian Council on Animal Care oversees the use of animals for science in Canada and certifies institutions that meet its standards. “The use of animals in research, teaching and testing is acceptable only if it promises to contribute to the understanding of fundamental biological principles or to the development of knowledge that can reasonably be expected to benefit humans or animals,” the council says. Animal research in institutions must pass through rigorous animal care committees, in which the validity of the research, number of animals, pain management and humane endpoints are evaluated and questioned. The research cannot be done without passing this hurdle. These committees include researchers, veterinarians, members of the general public and technical staff. Scientific literature is another way to sanction ethical research and communicate findings to other scientists. All major scientific journals require ethics statements on the use of animals before publishing a study. I can offer examples where live animal research was conducted ethically and without causing harm. One summer, I was involved in a live animal research study where we took nose swabs from horses in Saskatchewan to test for the superbug MRSA. Previous studies have found that horses can carry these bacteria without causing illness and may be a source of infection for people. As a result, we wanted to get a baseline of what proportion of horses were carri-

ers to better understand the risk to human health. I travelled around the province swabbing horses that ranged from pasture ornaments to rodeo bucking horses. I’m convinced that none of the 150 horses I sampled were harmed by this study, which allowed us to determine that a small percentage carry MRSA. Compar ing sick pets to their healthy counterparts is a major form of research done on dog and cat diseases. This comparison helps determine if there are differences that can explain the illness or help characterize the disease. For example, a colleague of mine, Dr. Kim Pattullo, was investigating a

blood abnormality in dogs. For her study, she needed to compare dogs with the disorder to those without. She needed a group of healthy control dogs, and I was more than happy to have a small amount of blood taken from my dog for her study. There were no ill effects from collecting this sample, and it actually benefitted my dog and me because I now have base line blood work in case he becomes ill in the future. Research involving animals is vital to improving human and animal health. Many studies are conducted using non-invasive or minimally invasive techniques, and the standard of care of animals used in research in Canada

New CCIA rules on sale of ID tags worries producers BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Mandatory livestock ear tags may be less convenient to buy following recent changes to Canadian Cattle Identification Agency requirements. Retail suppliers of radio frequency identification tags had to sign a new dealer agreement with CCIA by Feb. 3 if they wanted to continue providing

tags to customers. About 1,000 such outlets had been operating in Canada, according to CCIA data, but some have decided not to renew their agreements because they say they cannot meet the new terms. The issue has prompted concern among cattle producers about easy access. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy them locally anymore because of all the new regula-

tions,â&#x20AC;? said Terry Price, who raises cattle near Tisdale, Sask. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it kind of just snuck up on us because I went to buy CCIA tags from the Co-op and the vet clinic and they said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;well, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to handle them anymore because the new regulations wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow us to.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I bought up what I could before they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell them anymore.

that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about this.â&#x20AC;? Dr. John Ayres of Norsask Veterinary Group, which has clinics in Warman, Sask., and Rosthern, Sask., will no longer offer CCIA tags. The clinics have supplied tags since the CCIA program began, but Ayres said he was troubled by several aspects when he read through the new agreement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It struck me right off the bat that this was a fairly lengthy and fairly complex agreement and that it had several provisions in it that I really had some problems with,â&#x20AC;? he said. The agreement requires all records to be computerized and for data to be stored exclusively in Canada. Ayres said he owns the needed software, but the American company from which he bought it has periodic access for upgrades and troubleshooting. That means he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet the CCIA requirement. The CCIA website indicates that provision is mandated by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and is related to data protection and confidentiality. The agreement also requires tag retailers to carry specific insurance, including â&#x20AC;&#x153;errors and omissions liability insuranceâ&#x20AC;? of at least $2 million. Ayres contacted his insurance broker to check.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offer that kind of a product, and in fact it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear that that kind of a product is offered anywhere in the insurance business,â&#x20AC;? he said. Bob Lowe, an Alberta beef producer who serves on the CCIA board, said an independent audit of the traceability system found delays in data entry and data errors in the Canadian Livestock Tracking System managed by the CCIA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The data integrity was appalling, and the less steps you have between the CLTS database and the producer â&#x20AC;Ś the better the data integrity is going to be,â&#x20AC;? Lowe said. The agency decided to move to one tag distributor, CDMV of Quebec, which also has outlets in Calgary and Halifax. Retailers now have to order tags from CDMV and will be able to do so online. Next year, CCIA plans to charge dealers a fee for allowing them to provide tags. Lowe said changes might discourage smaller retailers from continuing to provide tags, but the integrity of tag data is vital to the mandatory identification system. Ayres said changes were announced in late December, giving tag sellers little time to assess and respond. He said he received little satisfaction from the CCIA when he asked about content of the new agreement.

New business model | Canadian companies allow farmers to conduct sales without brokers




ADM NY Alliance Grain TSX Bunge Ltd. NY ConAgra Foods NY W.I.T. OTC


Cutting out the middleman is an ancient business strategy, but two of the most innovative ways of doing that have recently come from tiny startups run by young Canadians. After a year of running their respective non-traditional marketing systems, the operators of Agriprocity and FarmLead say the farmer-touser model is expected to become a bigger part of the farmer’s marketing toolbox. “There’s tons of potential,” Nicole Rogers, the principal of Dubai-based Agriprocity, said in an interview at the CropConnect conference Feb. 19. “I’ve been so encouraged this year.” Brennan Turner, who operates the online crop listing service FarmLead. com, was similarly optimistic while at CropConnect. “It’s going great,” he said. FarmLead allows farmers and users of grain to post bids and offers and get directly connected with each other to make sales rather than relying on brokers or grain companies and marketers. Agriprocity tries to directly connect grain users and processors in the Middle East with prairie farmers to establish long-term relationships that offer both farmers and users a profit. The company organizes farmers in certain areas and connects them with overseas buyers. The buyers agree to take possession of the crops in Canada, while farmers agree to try to produce what buyers want. Rogers said the buyers she deals with are mostly concerned about security of supply, which means they are willing to deal with a range of qualities once the crop is grown. They will still buy from the major multinational agriculture trading companies, but they prefer that a small portion of their supplies be more predictable than the sale-bysale situation with the multinational companies. Similarly, farmers are tying only a

small part of their production to these direct sales relationships, which provides cash flow stability and reduces the amount of their crop that they have to market. Rogers said her system likely won’t give end users low prices or farmers peak prices, but it offers profitability and stability. “This is not a cheaper model,” said Rogers, who is Canada’s for-

mer agriculture representative in Dubai. “Ultimately, it is security of supply.” Rogers said her buyers in the United Arab Emirates like knowing exactly who they are buying their crops from and how the farmers are growing the crops. She thinks her farmer-to-user system will likely be more successful for overseas grain users than buying land in other countries and hiring farmers to grow for them. She said they seem to want to know what’s coming to them and that they have partners they can work with. “There’s a real desire to know where that grain or oilseed is coming from and that they’re going to be able to get it in the future,” said Rogers. Turner said his clients also like knowing more about who they are

doing business with. “We have found that price transparency is significant,” said Turner, who has just launched SeedLead, which is similar to FarmLead but focuses on pedigreed seed. “We allow and empower each user to be their (own) individual broker.” Both of these marketing systems are not typical in the large commodity trading world, but Rogers said her approach has been described as old-school, with a cost of production plus margin price-setting structure. However, it will be new for many farmers and users and perhaps a little unsettling for the big grain trade. “I’m a disruptor,” said Rogers. “This is totally disruptive of the way we’re doing business now.”

Weyburn Inland Terminal directors encouraging shareholders to approve sale to P&H BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Shareholders will decide Feb. 28 if one of Western Canada’s first and largest farmer-owned grain terminals will be sold. The board of directors at Weyburn Inland Terminal (WIT) near Weyburn, Sask., is recommending to share-

holders that all outstanding shares in the company be sold to Winnipegbased grain company Parrish & Heimbecker for $95 million, or $17.25 per outstanding share. The proposed sale must be approved by two-thirds of the company’s shareholders. WIT has 1,500 shareholders who own 5.5 million outstanding common shares. WIT’s assets include a

105,000 tonne concrete grain terminal at Weyburn, fertilizer and farm input retail operations and a specialty crop processing and marketing firm near Sedley, Sask. WIT also has a controlling interest in NorAmera BioEnergy Corp., an ethanol production facility in Weyburn. The proposed sale of the company has sparked a dispute among share-

holders who would like to sell WIT and others who would like farmers to continue owning the facility. WIT president Claude Carles has estimated that producers hold 40 percent of the company’s shares. Institutional investors own another 10 percent, and the remainder are held by businesses and individual investors who do not grow grain.






Transportation hub backer to design facility in-house BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Construction of a new grain collection facility and transportation hub is still on track at Northgate, Sask., near the Canada -U.S. border. However, a major American grain company will not be involved in the project. Ceres Global Ag Corp., the project’s main proponent, announced earlier this month that Scoular Co. will not be involved in funding, developing and building the proposed facility Ceres, which is based in Toronto, recently terminated its arrangements with Scoular. Instead, Ceres will use its own subsidiary company, Riverland Ag, to design and develop

the Northgate grain facility. Scoular is a Kansas-based grain trader with more than 70 offices and facilities in North and South America. Its global annual sales are valued at more than $6 billion. Scoular had been expected to play a major role in the Northgate facility, but company officials learned in late January that Ceres had unilaterally terminated the agreement. Circumstances surrounding the termination are still being discussed, Scoular officials said last week. Details are not being released. “This decision is disappointing to Scoular and, more importantly, is a setback for customers at Northgate who will be deprived of access to our long-established international ship-

ping networks serving end-use customers,” said Bob Ludington, Scoular’s chief operating officer. He said Northgate was one prong in Scoular’s much larger strategy to serve producers and end users through an extensive transportation and logistics network and an expanded grain buying presence. “Scoular will continue to aggressively pursue that strategy in Canada and elsewhere,” Ludington said. Ceres plans to spend an additional $17.4 million this year to complete construction of the grain facility and other infrastructure, including oil and gas transload facilities. “We looked at all the options for Northgate and concluded that building out the site, advancing the energy

transload business and having Riverland design and develop the grain elevator was the best risk-return option for Ceres,” said chair Gary Selke. “Northgate presents an exciting opportunity for Ceres and will open a whole new logistics outlet for Canadian farmers and energy producers to market their products in the (United States), Mexico and beyond.” Ceres chief executive officer Michael Detlefsen said the Northgate project will give the company an opportunity to “fundamentally retool its grain business,” transforming Riverland from a passive grain storage model to an active trading company. Ceres said in its third quarter report to investors that it decided to use

Riverland Ag to develop the grain facility because of the uniqueness of Northgate’s location, which is in the heart of a wheat and oat production region. The company said 178 million bushels of Canadian grain and oilseeds are produced within 160 kilometres of the proposed facility. The location also offers access to the BNSF rail system and an ability to buy freight transport, to which no other elevator in Western Canada has access. This site would allow Riverland Ag to deliver crops such as canola to Mexican customers in unit trains. It would also allow Riverland to develop a durum export program through its existing facility in Duluth, Minnesota.


Fed’s mission to balance budget may mean more tax audits • Rewarding rescue volunteers

TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS The government has extended the volunteer firefighter’s credit by introducing a search and rescue volunteer credit. At least 200 hours of volunteer time are needed to qualify for this $3,000 credit.



his year’s federal budget includes changes and improvements, but overall it is consistent with previous years’ plans. The following are highlights you may want to know about:

• The downside to lighting up This is an upside for your health, perhaps, but a downside for your wallet if you are a smoker. Tobacco prices will be going up, increasing by about $4 per package. If your New Year’s resolution was to quit smoking, this may give you the extra incentive you needed to keep it up.

New and mostly improved • Change to eligible capital property rules Big changes could be coming down the pipe for farmers. The purchase of eligible capital expenditures (ECE) such as water rights and quota is now tracked and reported differently than other assets. The budget proposed a possible change with a move toward treating the purchase of ECE more like other assets. The government plans to release draft legislation on the topic followed by a public consultation process. • High-speed for small towns The budget included an allocation of $305 million to be spent developing high-speed rural broadband. This is intended to help equalize internet access across Canada because many communities are not yet reliably connected. • Help for drought or flooded farmers Farmers who dispose of breeding livestock because of drought, flood or excess moisture are allowed to defer up to 90 percent of their sales proceeds until the following year. The budget now also allows farmers in these conditions to defer sales of bees and all types of horses older than 12 months. • GST credit simplicity You no longer need to apply for the GST credit. Instead, filing your tax return will trigger the application automatically.

Staying the course with personal taxes • Reporting foreign income still required

Get an accountant to guide you through the tax-time process. On track to a balanced budget The government has been succeeding on its mission to balance the budget. The economy performed better than expected in 2013, and the 2014 budget brings with it solid

expectations that the budget will be balanced in 2015. The government took a conservative approach to its finance planning, choosing to focus on job creation, which would in turn create more tax revenue. It also focused on increased collection by closing tax loopholes. This increased attention on collec-

tion means it is a good idea to be prepared for a personal tax audit by ensuring you have supporting documentation for any of your government forms, filings or tax returns. Kallie Desruisseaux and Karl Hendrickson of KPMG helped write this article. Colin Miller is a chartered accountant and partner with KPMG’s tax practice in Lethbridge. Contact:


Foreign income reporting rules have not changed, so it is important to talk to an accountant if you own foreign property valued at more than $100,000. Your vacation home or cottage in the United States is not a problem, but you may need to compile information on a T1135 form for the government if you own rental property across the border or have non-Canadian financial investments. Be sure to talk to an accountant to determine if you are reporting all of your foreign income on the right form. • Missing slips still a scary mistake There continues to be a 20 percent tax penalty on missing tax slips. They are one of the most common problems to arise during tax time, and the costs for this mistake can add up quickly. Unfortunately, a missing slip is often not discovered until your taxes are filed and complete, and the penalty is due. To avoid this, check your tax return and compare last year’s slips to slips you collected this year to determine if you are missing something. Ask your employer, investment manager or bank if and how many slips you should be expecting. If you think you are missing a slip, you can call the Canada Revenue Agency to find out what was filed.
