Spring brings déjà vu for some Rain delays seeding | Southwestern Manitoba’s soggy fields remind farmers of 2011 conditions BRANDON BUREAU

For Rob Pettinger, 2014 is starting to resemble the forgettable spring of 2011. Pettinger, who farms near Elgin, Man., said 75 millimetres of rain have fallen on his land over the last couple of weeks. In a best case scenario, he won’t begin seeding until the last week of May. “We haven’t done anything. We probably need 10 days to two weeks before we can get going,” said Pettinger, who has 2,200 acres of cropland. He said most producers in southwestern Manitoba are also dealing with soggy land and few have begun seeding. Farmers in the area are starting to compare this spring to 2011, when overland flooding prevented producers from seeding three million

acres. Most of the acres in southwestern Manitoba were lost. “It’s getting pretty concerning,” Pettinger said. “I would bet, right now, there will be some acres (in the region) not seeded. It’s a matter of week to week, how big that number grows to.” Elmer Kaskiw, Manitoba Agriculture’s farm production adviser in Minnedosa, said cropland isn’t quite as wet in his area. Still, growers across much of western Manitoba have seeded little to no crop. “ There are isolated pockets where there’s been one or two fields done on some better drained soils,” Kaskiw said. Twenty mm of rain fell around Minnedosa over the weekend, he added. Pettinger didn’t realize how wet his land was until May 10, when he towed harrows onto one of his fields. “We pulled a set of harrows out just

to open them up in the field,” he said. “It was pulled out on a hilltop and the wheels on the harrow bar (sunk) right to the frame. It’s just soft, soggy wet.” Reports from eastern Saskatchewan are similar to the wet soil conditions in western Manitoba. The first Saskatchewan Agriculture crop report for 2014, issued May 8, said “large amounts of water are lying in many fields” in east-central Saskatchewan. “Due to the excess moisture in some areas of the region, seeding intentions may change if those fields do not dry up soon,” Saskatchewan Agriculture said. More than 100 mm of precipitation have fallen on many regions of Saskatchewan since April 1. The rainfall, combined with cooler than normal temperatures, means seeding is a week away in eastern and northwestern Saskatchewan. Shane Halstead, who farms near

Nokomis, Sask., said he hopes to begin seeding this week. “It’s a bit of a hit and miss for moisture,” he said. “There’s lots of potholes with water and some of the flatter land is quite wet.… The odd guy has been starting to fire up (seeding), but there’s nothing major going on yet.” Gord Peters of Cadillac, Sask., is one producer who is making decent progress this spring. As of May 12, Peters had seeded one-third of his acres. He had already planted durum and lentils and was beginning to plant peas. Peters said soil conditions are cooler than ideal, but moisture is satisfactory. He said his neighbours are also busy and there is plenty of activity on the land. Jeff Nielsen of Olds, Alta., started seeding last weekend but was stopped by a snowstorm Saturday. SEE MANITOBA DÉJÀ VU, PAGE 2


CEO says efforts will now be focused on beef production BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A company that once billed itself as the largest corporate grain farm in the country is no longer growing crops in Western Canada. One Earth Farms, a subsidiary of Toronto-based Sprott Resource Corp., has sold its machinery and has terminated lease arrangements on hundreds of thousands of acres of cropland across the West. At the height of its operations, One Earth Farms was growing crops on almost 200,000 acres of farmland, most of it rented from First Nations in Saskatchewan and Alberta. By the end of this year, the amount of leased land controlled by the company will be down to approximately 5,000 acres, said Mike Beretta, the company’s chief executive officer. One Earth is now focusing its efforts on beef production and brand development. SEE ONE EARTH, PAGE 2

Manitoba has déjà vu He planned to seed barley this week, even though it rained nearly ever y day in May and his land remains wet. “Generally, people started Thursday and Friday last week in my area…. The bigger operators were out,” he said. “People are hunting from one side of the farm to the other to try and find the driest land to work on first…. It’s going to be one of those years. We’re going to have to avoid areas (in fields). There’s still snow in the tree lines in places and on the north side of any buildings.” In its initial crop report for 2014, Alberta Agriculture said cold temperatures and cool soil are a common theme this spring. “Seeding delays are most evident in southern and east-central Alberta with seeding seven to 10 days behind

as only six percent of crops have been seeded compared to the five year average of 17 percent and the longterm average of 32 percent.” Kaskiw said many growers around Minnedosa are hesitant to begin planting because water is sitting in low-lying areas. It hasn’t drained because the soil below is still frozen. “They (producers) know once the frost comes out of the ground, that water is going to drop and they’ll be able to seed through a lot of these areas.” Kaskiw said it’s definitely been a cold, wet and sluggish start to the growing season, but there’s still time to turn things around. “The reality these days is most producers are equipped to get the crop seeded in a short period of time…. I don’t think there is any panic, yet, by producers.”

lease arrangements since last year. Much of the cropland previously controlled by the company has been taken over by other farmers. Most of the farm machinery owned by the company has also been sold, primarily through private sales. Machinery sales generated more than $10 million in 2013, Beretta said. Farm employees, which numbered roughly 100 during peak seasons, are no longer on the payroll. However, the company is not out of farming completely. One Earth owns roughly 17,000 head of cattle, which are being managed through third-party arrangements with ranchers and private landowners in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario. The company’s business dealings with First Nations groups have been reduced significantly. One Earth has one third-party livestock management arrangement that involves a First Nation manager and one cropland arrangement with a First Nations partner in Alberta. Two years ago, the company had hundreds of leases with First Nations and individual aboriginal landowners. FOR A RELATED STORY, SEE PAGE 3

“(Crop production) just didn’t seem to fit in with our strategy going forward,” said Beretta. “Being a large corporate farm, I could not see how that would pencil out. It’s challenging enough for owner-operator farmers … but I never bought into (the idea) … on corporate scale, that it would work.” Beretta, a beef farmer from Ontario, joined One Earth’s management team in February 2013.

Cattle prices take wild ride Producers seeing profits | Consumers are finding even ground meat is more expensive CALGARY BUREAU

The beef industry is finally feeling the effects of short supplies as price records are broken on a weekly basis in the competition for all classes of cattle. “We are setting a record this week for fat cattle prices,” said market analyst Brian Perillat of Canfax. “Cull cow prices and our feeder cattle are hitting record prices. Our market is incredibly strong across North America.” For the week ending May 9, Canfax reported central Alberta 850 pound feeders averaged $180 per hundredweight, up $56 per cwt. from last year. Light weight cattle at 550 lb. destined for the grass market were fetching $225 per cwt., or $1,240 per animal. The cow-calf sector is probably the biggest beneficiary of this market, in which prices are going up faster than expenses. There has also been an incredible turnaround for the feeding sector, and owners will have to work closely with their bankers and pay close attention to risk management. Historical information from Canfax showed that a yearling steer lost $21 per head in March 2012. By November 2012, losses were at their highest levels at $241 per head. The losses continued until November 2013, when profits returned and they earned $75 per head. There have been four months of successive profits with the latest figures showing a profit of $202.44 per head in March 2014. There is renewed optimism within the business, said Bryan Walton,

CATTLE MARKET VOLATILE The cattle feeding industry is optimistic now that prices and profits are up after two years of steady losses. Industry experts are advising producers to plan for market volatility and hedge prices to protect gains.

MaxCrop Farm Canada Inc. is scaling back its farming operations in Saskatchewan. Mark Wartman, chair of the corporate farming operation, confirmed last week that the company will not seed or harvest crops of its own this year. Instead, land in MaxCrop’s portfolio will be farmed by other producers. Wartman, a former NDP MLA who served as Saskatchewan’s agriculture minister for nearly four years until November 2007, said the company is reassessing its strategy. For the time being, it will focus on crop processing operations and developing trade opportunities in Asia. MaxCrop, which has offices in Regina and Vancouver, is holding a farm dispersal auction May 15 at Melfort, Sask. Items on the bill include tractors, combines, swathers, drills, grain carts and other farm equipment. Wartman said operating costs and geographical issues were factors in MaxCrop’s decision to sell the company’s equipment and get out of primary production. “The decision was, at this point, to manage the land and rent it … have other folks farming it for this year,” Wartman said. “The capital involved with putting in a crop … is challenging and the other thing is that we’re spread out fairly widely.” In 2012, the company said it owned 70,000 acres in four parts of the province. Its largest production unit was a farm near Foam Lake, Sask., comprising 60 quarter sections. Wartman said MaxCrop is still involved in farmland acquisitions and is managing land for ChineseCanadian investors and landowners with business connections in Asia. He said all the farmland transactions facilitated by MaxCrop involve Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada. “Does some of the money originate off-shore? I’m sure it does,” Wartman said. “But is the ownership of the capital non-Canadian and off-shore? No. That would be a violation of the Farmland Security Act and we are committed to respecting that (act), not only in the letter but also in spirit.” MaxCrop, run by Asian-Canadian entrepreneur Andy Hu, comprises three companies: a real estate operation that buys farmland, a land management company that manages land for absentee investors and a farming operation involved in primary production, processing and value-added exporting. MaxCrop’s real estate company buys land and offers it to investors who qualify under Saskatchewan’s farmland ownership laws. Despite suspending its involvement in primary crop production, Wartman said the company is still acquiring farmland on behalf of potential investors, including Chinese-Canadian investors, some of whom are interested in farming themselves and others who see Saskatchewan farmland as a good investment.

chief executive officer of the Alberta Cattle Feeders Association. However, the organization is also talking about the need to train the next generation about volatility, hedging and other risk management practices needed to survive the boom and bust periods. “Risk management isn’t really taught,” he said. High priced cattle are now going on feed, and careful management is needed even during periods of profitability because the Canadian dollar may continue to decline and feed prices are not firm. Perillat said the break-evens for slaughter animals will also continue to climb, based on the price of cattle, feed and other costs.

“There are guys who contracted 1,000 lb. feeders in September for $1.70. They are paying $1,700 for a feeder that they are putting into their feedlot. That is unbelievable when they used to put them in for $700 to $800,” he said. The fed cattle market is strong, and records were set last week with average steer prices at $145 to $150 per cwt. Consumer resistance was anticipated when packers started paying $1.20 per lb. for fed cattle. “It is not necessarily the total price, but the relative price,” Perillat said. “Everybody is going to eat, but what are they going to eat? If they want meat products they have to pay for it.”

Meat prices are up all around the world. “People will have to get used to the fact that meat prices are going to stay high,” he said. People are starting to change what they buy. If they cannot afford the high end cuts, they select ground meat instead. This has encouraged cull cow prices to trend higher with the increased demand for hamburger meat. “It’s high prices everywhere, and it is affecting how much people will actually consume,” said Wendy Neuman with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. Meat, poultry and produce prices are on the rise, and consumers feel the pinch. Red meat sales have been flat since 2008, mostly because of price, she said at the Canadian Meat Council annual meeting in Toronto May 7-9. Ground beef has gone up 70 percent in the last five years while steaks are up 20 percent. The result is more cuts are being ground. Statistics Canada maintains a monthly price reporting index that shows one kilogram of sirloin steak cost $15.33 in March 2010, compared to $19.54 this past March. A kilogram of ground beef was $7.32 in 2010 and rose to $10.44 in 2014. A kilogram of pork chops was $9.02 in March 2010 and now retails at $11.24 per kg. Comparatively, a loaf of bread was $2.55 in 2010 and $2.81 in 2014. A 500 gram package of macaroni was $1.40 in that year and the most recent price was $1.37. FOR A RELATED STORY, SEE PAGE 70






Producer cars hit snag on timely delivery Many cars may not be delivered this crop year BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Demand for rail cars by grain producers has reached an all-time high, but it’s unclear how many of them have been delivered. The Canadian Grain Commission says it has received applications for more than 18,000 producer cars this crop year, which is a record. Producer cars are rail cars requested by grain growers who plan to fill them themselves and avoid handling and elevation fees. The previous record for producer car applications was slightly more than 14,000, set in 2011-12. The record demand this year suggests that an increasing number of farmers view producer cars as an effective and inexpensive way to get grain to market. The commission has processed 14,000 of the applications and passed them onto the railways. However, it said it doesn’t know how many have been delivered. “(That information) is not easily obtainable from our side,” said CGC producer car officer Garth Steidl. “We really don’t track that information, but yes, I would say that a large percentage of the … cars that we’ve scheduled (haven’t been spotted).” The commission is now facing a situation in which a large number of unspotted producer cars may need to be carried forward into the 201415 crop year.


Rail legislation stalls in Senate Accusations fly | Conservatives blame Liberals for delays, Liberals blame ‘lousy job in drafting legislation’ BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Emergency legislation aimed at improving the movement of Canadian grain is not likely to take effect until the end of the month. Conservative senator Don Plett said the Fair Rail for Grain Farmers Act, also known as Bill C-30, may not receive royal assent until May 29 or May 30 because of what he called unnecessary delays. The bill, introduced to Parliament in late March, has already been passed by the House of Commons and is awaiting Senate approval. The Senate was prepared to read the bill for a second time May 8 but an unexpected delay temporarily derailed its momentum, Plett said. Debate on the bill was suspended because Liberal senator Terry Mercer, appointed the bill’s critic last week, did not have sufficient time to prepare his speech to the Senate. The Halifax senator was being briefed on the bill by officials from Agriculture Canada as it was being read in the Senate May 8. Mercer is now expected to speak to the bill May 13. After that, it will still require debate by the Senate agriculture committee, which is expected to take two or three days, if not more. After discussions in committee, the bill will still require third reading and a vote in the Senate. The Senate is also scheduled to take a nine-day break beginning May 16, meaning it will not reconvene until May 26. “The fact of the matter is that the Liberals knew already two months ago that this bill was coming … and

Conservative senator Don Plett speaks to journalists on Parliament Hill. He says the Fair Rail for Grain Farmers Act will likely not pass until late May. | REUTERS/CHRIS WATTIE PHOTO of course they could have appointed senator Mercer as critic of the bill at that time, but they chose not to,” said Plett. “In my opinion, they are playing some silly bugger with the bill.… As you know, this bill was passed unanimously in the House of Commons, but the Liberals in the Senate are saying, ‘just because they passed this in the House … that doesn’t mean we’re going to rush this through.’ ” Mercer said Liberal senators have treated the bill as expeditiously as possible, despite its obvious shortcomings. “The Conservatives did a lousy job of drafting this legislation, they did a lousy job of managing the legisla-

tion through the House of Commons … and I’m not a happy camper here to learn that somebody is saying that we’re delaying it,” he said. “We’re not going to hold up this legislation. We’re going to be critical of the legislation because we understand the need for (it)…. To accuse anyone on the opposition side, particularly in the Senate, of delaying this is quite frankly bullshit.” Plett said Senate committee members are prepared to return to Ottawa during their scheduled break to debate the bill in committee. Both he and Mercer said they are still hopeful the bill will be ready for third reading and a vote in the

Senate by May 28. If that happens, royal assent would likely follow May 29 or May 30. Plett said it is important that Bill C-30 receives royal assent before June 2 to ensure that western Canadian grain continues to flow without interruption. A temporary order-in-council requiring Canada’s major railway companies to move a million tonnes of grain per week is due to expire the week of June 2. If Bill C-30 is not passed before then, regulatory measures compelling railways to move a specified amount of grain each week would no longer be in place.


Crusher offers oil premium on Manitoba canola BY SEAN PRATT JIM SMOLIK



Assistant chief commissioner Jim Smolik said the commission is still assessing the situation to determine if unfilled car orders will be carried forward or withdrawn from the system, requiring producers to reapply again in 2014-15. Producers are already lining up to place producer car orders for the next crop year. In late March, the grain commission issued a notice informing producer car users that new applications for 2014-15 will not be accepted until further notice. The commission normally doesn’t begin accepting applications until July for the subsequent crop year. However, with demand so high and a large number of orders still outstanding, the commission might be forced to reset the system. Smolik said the new system will probably allow producers to apply in advance for cars that will be delivered in future crop years.

While provincial canola groups debate the merits of paying for oil content, at least one company is forging ahead. Northstar Agri Industries, a crush facility in Hallock, Minnesota, has a new contract that pays Manitoba growers a five percent premium over its spot pricing for select high oil content hybrids. Derek MacLean, Manitoba grain buyer for Northstar, believes the program will expand the sourcing radius for the plant to 250 kilometres from 185 km. The three varieties that will form the backbone of the program are Bayer’s Invigor L252, DeKalb’s 73-75RR and Pioneer’s 45H29, which are already popular varieties with Manitoba growers. The other four are Canterra’s 1980, Pioneer’s 46H75 and 46S53 and Crop Production Service’s VT 530 G. The average oil content of those varieties is 48 percent. Jack Froese, director of the Mani-

Growers will get five percent above the spot price for high oil content. | FILE PHOTO

toba Canola Growers Association, said it is highly unusual to be paid a premium for oil content. He worries about going down that path because he fears it will lead to discounts for other factors such as moisture content. “We’ve got not a bad system the way it is,” said Froese. The association is studying the merits of moving to a system that pays growers a premium for producing canola with high oil content. One consideration is that canola produced in Manitoba tends to have less oil than canola grown in Saskatchewan.

The Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission passed a resolution at its annual general meeting in January to investigate the pluses and minuses of component pricing. The group is commissioning a consultant to help determine whether farmers should be pushing for oil premiums. “We’re working on something that will hopefully give answers by next AGM (annual general meeting),” said chair Franck Groeneweg. He has no problems with companies such as Northstar forging ahead with their own programs in the meantime.

“They’re looking at an opportunity to attract some product, and they’ve found a way that will appeal to some producers,” said Groeneweg. “Ideally, to me, that’s where I’d like to see it, where we have something that works for some companies and others that want to stay within the current system.” He doesn’t want to see a mandatory, industry-wide program because oil content is largely a function of weather, which growers can’t control. He worries that producers will be taking on additional risk by contracting to deliver canola with a specific oil content. Groeneweg said crushers have traditionally been reluctant to pay a premium for oil content, so it will be interesting to see what happens with the Northstar program. “If one company sees an advantage into offering premiums to farmers for higher oil content, I think that’s great and it’s up to the farmer to decide if that’s good for his operation,” he said. “If that’s the way farmers want to go, more companies are going to come along with it.”





Second PED case raises farmer concern in Manitoba Weak link highlighted in truck tagging system BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

A second hog operation in Manitoba has tested positive for the deadly porcine epidemic diarrhea virus. Manitoba Agriculture announced confirmation May 9, although it said no pigs on the southeastern Manitoba hog finisher farm had shown symptoms of illness. The provincial veterinarian’s office said the positive sample was found through investigation of another positive sample at a high-traffic site. The second on-farm case has the province’s hog producers on high alert, said Manitoba Pork chair Karl Kynoch. “The veterinarians have to do the trace back and trace forward from that farm, and then they’ve got to do more testing on that farm as well, so there’s a lot more questions than answers at the moment, how that farm came in contact with it.” Tests at 18 sites with high hog traffic, including assembly yards, slaughter plants and truck washes, have identified eight positive tests among more than 1,180 samples. Kynoch said some of those sites have already undergone cleaning and disinfection and will be retested to gauge success in virus eradication. Source of the infection isn’t known, but livestock trucks have always been considered potential carriers, especially those travelling from the United States where PED is now endemic and has killed millions of piglets. Kynoch said the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Canadian Border Services tag trucks at the border that have come from American farms. Those trucks are required to be washed and disinfected at an accredited wash station. However, regulations don’t require trucks coming from U.S. packing plants to be tagged or washed. “Those are the most dangerous trailers to our industry because there are such high levels of PED in the U.S.,” he said. “In Manitoba, we’ve been pushing to get them to do that, but the wheels of government don’t move too fast.” Kynoch said producers are asking for government action at both the federal and provincial level. “It’s going at government speed. It’s frustrating. Things that a farmer would implement inside of 24 hours, you’re looking at a year or two to do that with government,” he said. “Our government is working with us, but I sure wish they would pick up the pace. We have PED on the ground here in Manitoba, and we’re trying to fight it.” PED spreads easily and is almost always fatal to young piglets, although it is no threat to human health or food safety. In Canada, 62 hog operations, 58 of them in Ontario, had contracted the virus as of May 12.

Wheat prices may not last for long Ukraine turmoil may resolve itself | Export market buoyed by U.S. drought and uncertainty in Ukraine BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Farmers should seriously contemplate locking in wheat futures values because one factor propping up prices may not be around in a few months, says an analyst. “There are two primary things that have been supporting the markets: one is the U.S. hard red winter wheat situation and one is Ukraine,” said Bruce Burnett, a CWB weather and crop specialist. Drought in the U.S. winter wheat growing area is a tangible factor that can be measured on a weekly basis, but political turmoil in Ukraine is an entirely different beast. “It’s probably even harder to predict than the weather,” said Burnett. Grain markets are nervous about the potential for an escalation in the conflict between Ukraine and ProRussian separatists. Ukraine is the world’s third largest exporter of wheat, corn and canola and a major competitor for other crops grown by Canadian farmers such as barley, flax, pulses and special crops. The conflict is causing currency devaluation and tighter lending conditions, reducing the ability of Ukrainian farmers to afford seed, fertilizer and other crop inputs. Farmers tend to be less inclined to

sell grain under those conditions because it is a hedge against rapid inflation. There are also fears the conflict could disrupt exports spurred by recent uprisings in Odessa, which is Ukraine’s largest port. Grain markets have created a risk premium for the political turmoil in Ukraine. Burnett said it is a significant factor in wheat prices, but it is impossible to quantify. “As long as there are Russian troops on the border and towns that are occupied and the potential for something to happen, there will always be a little bit of a risk premium in there just because you don’t know when it’s going to escalate,” he said. “If tanks roll and missiles fly, we ain’t seen nothing yet.” But what happens if tensions ease, farmers produce a big crop and exports flow unimpeded out of Ukrainian ports by late summer? “That’s when the trade gets a little more comfortable with the situation,” said Burnett. “The risk premium that we have could disappear if we see exports starting in early August from the region go off like clockwork.” He believes that is the more likely scenario and something farmers should consider when making their

marketing plans. “If you want to take some risk off the table, current prices are looking very, very good on the futures side at least, anyway,” said Burnett. Brenda Tjaden-Lepp, chief analyst with FarmLink Marketing Solutions, agreed that farmers should consider locking in a good portion of their anticipated 2014 wheat crop at today’s values. Her clients are already 30 percent sold on new crop. “If I was a farmer who wasn’t yet 30 percent sold, I would definitely be getting caught up to our recommended levels into the current strength,” she said. Tjaden-Lepp said it is quite possible that the Black Sea region will produce and export a normal crop, which would have its usual bearish influence on prices. “I think those stocks will come to market at super-discounted values and that’s going to take away demand from other parts of the world.” FarmLink wants its clients to backend load sales of the remaining 70 percent of their wheat crop, holding off on selling it until March when the cheap Black Sea wheat has worked its way through the system. Tjaden-Lepp said the wheat market looks flat for 2014, but there could be a significant improvement in basis levels by March because Canada’s

r a i l w a y s s h o u l d h av e w o r k e d through a lot of the grain backlog by then. “If the futures stay flat, we should be seeing a $1 per bushel better basis across Western Canada by next March or whenever the system clears,” she said. Markets are expecting reduced corn and wheat production in Ukraine this year. A Reuters survey of 11 traders and analysts produced a median forecast of 25 million tonnes of corn, down 19 percent from last year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is calling for 26 million tonnes of corn, down 16 percent from last year. Exports would also be down 16 percent. The USDA is forecasting 20 million tonnes of Ukrainian wheat production, dow n 10 percent, while wheat exports are forecast to fall 11 percent. CWB’s numbers are bigger than the USDA’s, with 27.2 million tonnes of corn and 10.5 million tonnes of wheat. Last year’s growing conditions were ideal. This year there was good moisture at seeding time. How the rest of the year unfolds is anybody’s guess. “Even (Russian president Vladimir) Putin can’t change the weather, or at least we don’t think he can,” said Burnett.

Are canola stock forecasts overstated? Some farmers sold out | Basis levels are narrowing which means buyers are competing for supply BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Brian Voth has a nagging feeling there is not as much canola in the system as Statistics Canada is reporting. In its latest stocks report, the agency said nine million tonnes were stored on farms or in the hands of grain handlers as of March 31, double what was around a year ago and 2.1 million tonnes higher than the previous record set in 2010. Yet when Voth talks to growers, he hears that many are cleaned out or

have little on hand. Something doesn’t add up. “That’s what we’re trying to figure out,” said the senior market adviser with Agri-Trend. “If there is nine million tonnes of canola, where is it all?” He is confident little canola remains in southern Manitoba, western Manitoba and eastern Saskatchewan. “I know that Agri-Trend clients don’t have much or any canola left. Even talking to non-clients, it doesn’t seem like there’s a lot left out there either,” said Voth.

Statistics Canada’s number suggests only half of last year’s production was moved off the farm during the first eight months of the year. Voth’s suspicion that supplies are not as plentiful as the government says is bolstered by recent market activity. As of May 12, the May futures contract was at an inverse to the July and November contracts, and the July contract was approaching the same relationship with the November contract. Meanwhile, basis levels have been narrowing across the Prairies. “It all means that buyers want to

buy canola right now and they’re having to bid it up to do so,” said Voth. He believes either Statistics Canada’s 2013-14 production number was too high or its usage figure is too low. He suspects it is the former. “I would say that there is a possibility that Statistics Canada was too high. Realistically, their track record is not that great,” said Voth. Brenda Tjaden-Lepp, chief analyst of FarmLink Marketing Solutions, thinks the answer is not that straightforward. She thinks it has a lot to do with this year’s unusual rail movement, which

is starting to get back on track. “Canola is the main beneficiary of improved transportation capacity,” she said. “(Grain) companies are obviously choosing to make canola a priority.” Tjaden-Lepp believes there are regions where stocks are plentiful and areas where canola supplies are depleted, depending on rail service. Voth said that could be true. There may be more canola on farms in northern Saskatchewan and the Peace region of Alberta, where farmers rely more on rail service to move their crops. However, it wouldn’t be enough to account for nine million tonnes of stocks as of March 31. “Something doesn’t add up here because we’ve got a lot of demand that (grain companies) can’t fulfill, it seems,” he said. Kelly McIntyre, northern Peace director for the Alberta Canola Producers Commission, said there are definitely excess stocks in the Peace River region. “I would say there is more on farm right now than normally. Certainly on my farm there is,” he said. “Going into the winter, prices were poor and so I think a lot of people tried to market for cash flow only and not to go overboard.” Voth said the stocks conundrum is causing Agri-Trend to rethink its carryout estimate. The company started with 2.2 million tonnes, went as high as 3.5 million tonnes during the rail crisis and has now dropped to about three million tonnes.


Charts help signal spring wheat price direction Algorithms? Fibonacci levels? retracements? | There’s more to predicting spring wheat price than supply and demand BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

New crop spring wheat futures are tickling the underside of an important resistance level, and higher highs are possible if they can make it wriggle out of the way, technical analysts say. However, prices might remain choppy beneath resistance and

above support for a while before a decisive market direction becomes apparent. “Right now it’s resistance until it gets through it,” said David Drozd of Ag-Chieve, a technical analysis market advisory firm in Winnipeg. “Because of the distance we’ve come (from the January lows) to get here, it would not be uncharacteristic of the market to sit back and have a bit

of a breather before it pushes through that level.” Drozd said wheat futures still have a generally upward trend, so he thinks prices are more likely to move above $8.30 per bushel than break down much below $7.70. Darin Newsom, senior analyst at DTN, said spring wheat futures are n ow s ha r p l y ov e r b o u g ht. T h e December 2014 Minneapolis futures

recently almost reached the previous high of $8.30, set a year ago in May. As a result, they are likely to bounce lower from these levels. The amount they fall is an open question. “Given its technical structure, (the December futures contract) could see a sell-off back to support between $7.61 and $7.27,” said Newsom. Those possible support levels are based on retracements of 33 percent

and 50 percent, which are typical levels used by analysts using classical Dow chart analysis. Newsom also uses Fibonacci levels but relies on them more in markets that are more heavily influenced by math and computer-based traders, whose decisions are based on algorithms.

As cattle futures shoot for the moon, some feeders have strapped on parachutes in case the engines flame out. They are using bear put option spreads to make sure they can bail out if the rally fails. “If it does go to 200 (cents per pound), let it go, but we know at some point it’ll be down to 180 when the market breaks,” said Calgary broker Errol Anderson of Pro Market Communications. Anderson is establishing downside price protection by buying $1.90 August 2014 Chicago Merchantile

The premium paid is relatively expensive because they are close to being “in-the-money,” which reduces the insurance value of the option. However, by having the buyer simultaneously sell a put for $1.84, the premium from that sale can be used to subsidize the purchase of the more expensive put and make it more affordable and better protection. “It gives the guy six cents (per lb.) downside protection, and we’re get-

An interesting element of technical analysis is that it has to grapple not only with the market’s unconscious pricing decisions but also with the fact that some significant players in the market trade specifically on certain key levels, which by itself can dictate when prices change direction. Technical analysis relies on the assumption that past price behaviour reveals patterns that can lead to successful predictions of likely future price moves. Tech analysts generally assume that all the fundamental supply and demand information presently known has already been factored into prices, so looking at the fundamentals is useless for predicting where prices are likely to go. Tech analysts can use a vast array of

Instead of paying about four cents per lb. for the single $1.90 put option, the feeder ends up paying about a net two cents by writing the $1.84 for about two cents. This is known as a put option bear spread. In this case, the person who owns the option will benefit if feeder cattle futures prices fall below $1.90 plus the net cost of the premium. If prices fall below $1.88, the spread begins paying off until prices hit $1.84, which is where the other put kicks in.

Maltsters, growers form relationships Malt companies have list of tried and true growers BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

A specialty crop in Western Canada is usually described as a small acreage crop such as sunflowers and buckwheat, where the vast majority of production is contracted. Malting barley may now fall into that category. “We keep using the word that this is a ‘specialty’ crop. That keeps coming up more and more,” said Kevin Sich, grain department manager with Rahr Malting in Alix, Alta. Rahr Malting contracts 100 percent of its malt barley supply from Alberta and Saskatchewan farmers. The company works with producers who have a proven record of growing high quality barley. “It becomes a relationship back and forth, between the maltster and the farmer, which has really evolved over the last five years,” Sich said. “We have a lot of growers that are (at) 80 to 90 percent…. They’re getting malt eight or nine out of 10 years. The only years they’re not getting it is because of Mother Nature.” Brian Otto, who farms near Warner, Alta., agreed the malting barley industry has changed significantly over the last several years. The days of a farmer growing barley on speculation, hoping to get a price premium if it satisfied malting standards, are nearing an end. Otto said maltsters have developed a list of preferred growers and form partnerships with them. “The people who have been growing malt barley the last few years and meeting malt plant (standards), those are the people getting more contracts

this year,” said Otto, who plans to seed 1,100 acres of malt barley this spring, up from 900 acres last year. Otto said malt companies started becoming more selective before the end of the CWB monopoly, but the practice of buying from certain growers has accelerated in the last couple of years. “This is all about relationships in the industry … establishing relationships with who buys your crop and maintaining those relationships by making sure you do a good job,” he said. “That’s the way the industry has been moving.” Bob Cuthbert, senior marketing manager for barley with CWB, said maltsters used to rely on “a big pot” of malting barley in Western Canada. They would buy from growers who sent in a sample of the crop. “They’ve had to (contract) because acres have been decreasing,” he said. Prairie growers seeded more than 11 million acres of barley in the early 2000s. Statistics Canada is projecting 6.3 million acres this year. Maltsters opted for production contracts to secure supply as barley acres declined, Cuthbert said. “They have to show the farmer a price, up front, that’s competitive with other grains.” Otto said he recently agreed to a contract price of $5.50 per bushel for part of his production in 2014. That’s up about 25 percent from January, when malt barley contracts were around $4.40 per bu. in Alberta. Sich said Rahr Malting has contracted 100 percent of malting barley supply for the last three years. He said maltsters use their relationship with


6.3 million growers to achieve a competitive advantage in the marketplace. “We have a lot of brewers that are beside themselves,” Sich said.


“They can come and we can show them barley samples and trace it … right back to the farmer’s field. (We) show them all the chemicals that

were sprayed. Give them land locations. Give them total traceability. It’s become a big marketing tool for our company.”


U.S. crushers look to Manitoba to meet expansion plan BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

U.S. crushers will remain heavily reliant on Canadian canola this year, says a buyer for one of the plants. “Our requirements for the total tonnage is going to be going up because we’re increasing our crush,” said Derek MacLean, Manitoba grain buyer for Northstar Agri Industries, which operates a crush facility in Hallock, Minnesota. The plant will soon be processing another 200 tonnes of canola a day, or about 70,000 tonnes per year. Most of that will come from Manitoba. Northstar is paying Manitoba growers a five percent premium over its spot pricing to grow a selection of high oil content varieties. It believes the incentive will expand its reach in the province. The company also offers basis levels that are $20 per tonne better than the competition in southern Manitoba after taking the freight disad-

Four American crushers rely on Manitoba growers for supply. | vantage into account. Jack Froese, a farmer from Winkler, Man., hasn’t delivered canola to the Hallock plant, but he has benefited from the demand generated by the new facility. “It has certainly pumped the pricing up our way a little bit with the basis,” he said. “Throughout the winter they had some pretty good pricing


when our pricing wasn’t that great.” Froese hasn’t sold canola to the plant because of the red tape associated with trucking the crop across the border. MacLean said four major crushers operate in Minnesota and North Dakota, which source 90 percent of their canola from Manitoba. That important source of demand

won’t be disappearing anytime soon, based on seeding intentions for the United States. U.S. growers intend to plant 1.74 million acres of canola, which is up 29 percent from last year. That sounds like impressive growth, but 2013 was an anomaly because farmers in North Dakota were unable to plant as much of the crop as they hoped because of wet conditions. A better comparison is from two years ago, especially in North Dakota, where farmers intend to seed 1.27 million acres this year compared to 1.46 million acres in 2012. Legumex Walker operates a crush facility in Warden, Washington. The company was hoping for a big increase in canola acres in the Pacific Northwest. Growers in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana intend to plant 147,000 acres of the crop, which is down from 166,000 acres in 2013. The company recently expanded its trucking program beyond the

Pacific Northwest into the Canadian Prairies in an effort to increase supply that has been restricted by poor rail service. MacLean can’t understand why growers in North Dakota are shunning the crop, given that there is a market for the product in their backyard. “I was talking to our agronomy manager the other day and he was saying the same thing. He can’t understand why.” MacLean’s best guess is that the $2 per bushel premium for growing soybeans is keeping farmers from experimenting with canola, which is an unfamiliar crop for many growers. “It’s a relatively new product down there. It hasn’t been around for 25 years like in Western Canada.” MacLean anticipated a better acreage response in the U.S. next year. “I think the soybean-canola spread is going to narrow up in the new crop. Then we’ll be on a level playing field challenging for acres next year down there.”




CANFAX REPORT RECORD FOR FED CATTLE Fed cattle prices hit new record highs last week and are $5 per hundredweight higher than a month ago. Fed steers averaged $150.53 per cwt., up $2.53, and heifers were $149.063, up $4.27. Strong prices encouraged feedlots to sell early and keep their inventory current. The Alberta-Saskatchewan show list was the smallest this year. Packerowned supply is tightening, and there was good interest in the cash market. Some feedlots were negotiating when packers would take the cattle because they could use the extra days on feed. The Alberta cash-to-futures basis greatly improved to +84 cents, while the Alberta-Nebraska cash-to-cash basis was -$10.18, reflecting the extremely strong basis levels in the United States. The strong basis will likely reduce exports to 7,500 per week from 10,000. Fed supplies should remain manageable and, with more calves entering the slaughter mix , carcass weights should remain below 2012 and 2013.


Grass types weighing 400-600 lb. rose $3-$5. Steers 600-700 lb. were slightly higher while heifers rose $3.75. Feeders 700-900 lb. rose $1.75-$4. Feeder steers on average rose $2.50 and heifers were up $3.50. Alberta auction volume fell 24 percent to 17,656 head. Weekly feeder exports to April 26 fell 26 percent to 8,388 head. Average 550 lb. steers placed against the December live contract should be able to break even. Reduced feeder offerings in the next few weeks will continue to support prices.

U.S. BEEF DOWN U.S. boxed beef prices fell, with Choice down $4.69 US at $225.65 per c w t. a n d S e l e c t d ow n $ 8 . 4 7 at $212.51. Larger slaughter in the previous week increased beef supplies while demand remained light to moderate. The cutout is $20-$21 higher than last year, but negotiated sales volume has been the same as a year ago since April. Canadian prices are unavailable.



The number of cattle on feed in Saskatchewan and Alberta feedlots was up eight percent over the previous year at 960,178 head. The report surprised the trade, which expected little change in onfeed numbers. Placements in April were 127,840, down five percent from last year in the same month. Marketings in April were 136,219, up five percent. Ample market-ready supplies and scarce feeder supplies will quickly put cattle-on-feed numbers in line with a year ago and will likely be below a year ago later in 2014.

Feeder prices have skyrocketed to new highs this spring. Central Alberta 850 pound feeders averaged $180 per cwt. in early May, up $56 per cwt. from last year or $475 per head. Anticipated tight feeder supplies sparked buyer interest and strong prices last week.

Stocks-to-use ratio expected to increase to 18.8 percent


irst, a note about the markets data on page 78. We rejigged the layout to make room to provide a window on grain movement, a hot topic this year. At the bottom of the page you’ll see weekly total bulk grain shipments from elevators in each of the three prairie provinces, plus the total to date for the crop year. The exchange rate for the Canadian dollar is now in a box on the left side of the page. Data on fed cattle cash-to-futures basis and Alberta-to-Nebraska cash basis can be found in the Canfax report on page nine. Now, let’s look at the U.S. Department of Agriculture monthly supply and demand report issued May 9. The only surprise was the increase for current year-end global corn stocks and the forecast for another

increase next year. The USDA pegged 2013-14 world corn ending stocks at 168.42 million tonnes, up 10 million from April and above a range of estimates. For next crop year, it sees corn stocks rising to 181.73 million tonnes. That, too, was above the range of traders’ expectations of 149.90 to 175 million tonnes. The 2014-15 forecast is the most since 1999-2000 and, on a stocks-touse ratio measure, is the most since 2008-09. The USDA put the 2014-15 average corn price for U.S. farmers at a range of $3.85 to $4.55 US per bushel, down from $4.50 to $4.80 in the current crop year. Based on the USDA’s forecast, the global stocks-to-use ratio would increase to 18.8 percent, or the equivalent of 69 days of supply. As recently at 2010-11 it was at about 57 days supply. Over the past 40 years, the lowest amount was 55 days. New crop December corn futures fell about 2.5 percent on the day of the USDA report and a further 1.35 percent May 12. The increase in year-end stocks is not the result of bigger crops. The USDA pegged global corn production in 2014-15 at 979.08 million tonnes, almost identical to the current year. It cut Ukraine’s corn production by five million tonnes to 26 million on account of the political turmoil and in


68.8 days UP FROM 65.2 DAYS IN 2013-14 line with analysts’ expectations. That cut is offset by increased crop forecasts for China, Argentina and Mexico. Production exceeded demand in the current year by a little more than 30 million tonnes. In the coming year, demand will increase 1.8 percent but is expected to still fall short of production, causing year end stocks to rise 13.3 million tonnes if the USDA forecasts are correct. So there will likely be ample corn in the world if there are no weather surprises. U.S. Midwest seeding progress has caught up to the norm, and that also could weigh on prices. However, it is also worth noting that the USDA based its domestic production forecast on a record yield of 165.3 bushels an acre. Actual yields have fallen short of the early forecast for the past four years and in six of the past 10 years. Follow D’Arce McMillan on Twitter @darcemcmillan.







Define good service to avoid disputes, gov’t intervention


overnment regulation is a blunt tool, so it is no surprise that the new rules requiring the two main Canadian railways to carry a million tonnes of grain a week are creating inequities. The federal government’s order in council relates only to volume to be moved, not where the grain comes from or where it goes. To move the most grain volume possible, the railways are focusing efforts on corridors with fast turn-around times. Grain is moving from Alberta to the West Coast and from Manitoba to Thunder Bay, says Wayne Sobkowich of the Western Grain Elevators Association. Movement from Saskatchewan elevators is less of a priority because of distance from port and longer turn-around times. So Saskatchewan farmers will likely have fewer delivery opportunities, more cash flow problems and larger unsold year-end stocks than their neighbours in Alberta and Manitoba. As well, short-line railways in Saskatchewan are complaining of deteriorating services from the main railways since the federal order was imposed. That is not fair, but in an emergency we might have to live for a short time with some unfairness so as to clear out as much grain as possible and restore relationships with grain importers. However, fairness and equity, as well as efficiency must be priorities as the federal government reworks the long-term regulatory structure for Canada’s rail sector. Railways should not be allowed to dominate and dictate where grain goes, becoming the de facto manager of Canada’s grain trade priorities. Bill C-30, the Fair Rail for Grain Farmers Act, takes the first steps toward levelling the dynamics in the grain transportation sector, which until now have been weighted in favour of the railways. The act extends the order to move a million tonnes a week to the end of this crop year, and

new reporting requirements will provide the industry with more detailed information to help it better plan and co-ordinate shipping capacity to meet sales obligations. The legislation will likely also allow the Canadian Transportation Agency to assess financial damages caused by poor rail service and award compensation to shippers for unexpected costs. It will also inject more competition into the system by expanding interswitching distances to 160 kilometres from 30 km. These are good first steps, but further efforts are needed. First among them is to define what constitutes poor service and what service railways should provide. Otherwise, anytime a complaint goes to arbitration, shippers must fight to define the appropriate level of service. Such undertakings are so costly they negate the value of service agreements. A coalition of freight shippers representing grain, forest products and fertilizer has argued this point for years. The review of the flawed Fair Rail Freight Service Act, moved forward to this summer, presents another opportunity for the federal government to implement this recommendation to balance the relationship between railways and shippers. That will make the rail transportation sector function more like a true competitive free market, which can work out problems fairly and expeditiously without the need for constant government intervention that is always too late and inadequate to address every need fairly. Never again should rail problems turn a bumper crop, the golden product of so much sweat, investment and planning, into a disaster for farmers.

Stalling of plant breeders’ rights bill reflects PMO’s growing power CAPITAL LETTERS



here’s a question quietly rumbling its way through agriculture groups in Ottawa lately: where, oh where, is Bill C-18? The Agricultural Growth Act, or Bill C-18, hasn’t been seen on the order paper (parliament’s daily agenda) since a brief debate in March. Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz introduced the bill last December. If passed, the bill would see Canada sign onto UPOV 91, the international plant breeder’s rights agreement dating back to 1991. The legislation also includes changes to the Advanced Payment Program and increased flexibility around security repayments. Ritz has said he wants the bill

passed in time for Canada to adopt UPOV 91 by August 2014, the start of the next crop year. C-18 has widespread support from most major agriculture groups — the National Farmers Union being the exception — so its sudden disappearance from the Ottawa agenda is puzzling. There’s no question the ongoing grain backlog in Western Canada and the sudden need for emergency legislation threw MPs for a loop. Yes, for a few weeks Bill C-30 (the Fair Rail for Grain Farmers Act) was the focal point of agriculture chatter in Ottawa. Still, to suggest everything else in a department or minister’s office must be put on hold because of one unforeseen situation is not only concerning, but frightening. Canada is a large country, with multiple issues arising in different regions at the same time. The expectation is MPs, ministers and departments should be able to multi-task several files within their portfolios at once.

And, if there’s one minister who should be able to juggle more than one issue at a time, it’s Ritz. First appointed agriculture minister in 2007, he is now one of the longest serving cabinet ministers on prime minister Stephen Harper’s front bench. He’s also never been shuffled. Seven years down the road, the expectation is that he has a decent grasp and understanding of his portfolio. However, ministerial and parliamentary multi-tasking appears to go against the “one-at-a-time” mindset of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). For years, PMO staffers (fondly referred to by some Ottawa scribes as the “kids in short pants”) have been accused of dictating the timing and placement of bills and debates. Normally, Parliament’s schedule is set via consultation with all party House leaders. Lately, though, it seems there’s a direct line between the government House leader’s office and the PMO, which affects when a bill is brought forward for debate. That poses a problem for depart-

ments such as agriculture. Most PMO folks have little understanding of Canadian agriculture. Convincing them the Agricultural Growth Act should be a Conservative top priority is no easy task. The result, insider sources tell me, is the minister and other rural MPs are often left fighting the Conservative political machine by themselves. The delay means some in Ottawa are now suggesting Bill C-18 might be stuck until the fall. That rumour has many Ottawa agriculture folks on edge. Seventeen farm organizations, including the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, Grain Growers of Canada and Cereals Canada, have joined forces under the Partners in Innovations banner to push the federal government to adopt UPOV 91 immediately. In an effort to boost the pressure, groups such as the Canadian Seed Trade Alliance have started writing industry letters calling for Bill C-18 to be deemed “high priority.” Those letters, once addressed to the agriculture minister, are now being sent to the PMO.

Time is running out. If Canada is expected to meet Ritz’s Aug. 1 deadline, the bill must reappear in the House in the coming days. Otherwise, the government risks making another promise to the international community it is unable to keep. Several international investments in seed and crop varieties, for example, hinge on Canada’s signing of UPOV 91, the head of the Canadian Seed Trade Alliance wrote in his April 16 letter to the PMO. Those agreements, Peter Entz warned, “could all be at risk” if Bill C-18 is delayed. At a time when Canada’s global reputation, particularly when it comes to agricultural issues, is on the rocks, thanks to the rail logistics crisis, the threat of failing to meet another deadline is concerning. Canada used to be known for keeping its word. It’s time to reassure the world we can do just that.

New cattle insurance ideal tool for producers

Use light touch when enjoying great outdoors




he Western Livestock Price Insurance Program should become a valuable addition to a livestock producer’s tool chest. The program’s original scope, when it was developed in 2009 for Alberta’s fed cattle market, was broadened to include Alberta’s calf and feeder market and has recently been expanded. Producers from British Columbia to Manitoba now have access to a product that can reduce market price risk for fed cattle, feeders, calves and hogs. The insurance provides a price floor for predetermined sale dates in the fall. Indicators point toward a continuation of the strong livestock market, but various factors can wreak havoc on the best-laid plans, such as an unexpected spike in the September corn market, the Canadian dollar or trade infringement actions such as mandatory country-of-origin labelling. WLPIP is designed to insure against just such a situation. As part of Growing Forward 2, WLPIP has been launched as a pilot project designed to be actuarially sound and self-sustaining. Premiums paid by producers will fund the pool for program claims. The federal and provincial governments will cover administrative costs



The insurance program provides a price floor for predetermined sale dates in the fall. | and in the event of a project deficit, the federal government will backstop the program. However, the timing of the program launch is ideal for the growth of the premium pool. If the livestock market maintains its upward trend, claims on the WLPIP will be minimal, thus allowing a large premium pool to accumulate and reduce or eliminate the need for any potential federal top-up. The WLPIP appears to be a welldesigned price insurance program, but it is not intended to remove all risk. Producers must understand

their cost of gain, transportation costs, marketing fees, death loss, shrinkage and the potential for the insured class of animal to hit a target end weight. The program will be valuable for producers who know their costs and meet their production goals and should reduce fears of a sudden upsurge in feed markets or a stock market crash. The WLPIP provides a simple hedge against market disruptions. Industr y groups that support WLPIP and the agricultural departments involved in its development


should be applauded for their efforts. Effective industry lobbying and the resulting co-ordination among provincial governments in Western Canada speaks to the program’s relevance in today’s cattle production environment. For livestock producers who plan to be in business four years from now, I suspect that the renewal of the WLPIP will be recognized as even more important than the launch is perceived today.

Farmers must look for solutions to waste disposal HURSH ON AG



ealing with agricultural waste is a vexing problem, one that has been aggravated with modern practices. What do you do with treated seed? Inevitably there’s a bit left over from each crop. You seldom have exactly enough treated to match the acres. Sometimes, if you’re lucky, it’s just a bushel or two of overage. More likely you have much more than that. No one wants to be short, so you tend to overshoot. A much higher percentage of seed is being treated, so the problem is growing. If you put treated seed in a bin and keep it until next spring, there’s a risk of contaminating the bin.

Ideally, we should all have dedicated storage and augers for treated seed. Mistakes can be costly if grain becomes contaminated. There’s a zero tolerance for treated seed going to terminals, and rightly so. Beyond the contamination issue, do you really want a small amount of treated seed tying up an entire bin? Mini bulk bags can be an option if you have a place to store them. However, will you be seeding the same variety next year and will germination be maintained until the following year? That’s why treated seed is often discarded. Unfortunately, most of the recommended disposal methods are impractical, so producers have little clear direction on how to proceed. Beyond the environmental concern, discarding treated seed is a major cost. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to connect with another producer to even give it away. That’s also the case with leftover pulse crop inoculant. You never want to run short. You may be left scram-

bling to find additional product, but it’s tough to exactly gauge metering rates onto the seed. Of course, if you have unused inoculant at the end of the season, it has no value for anyone. The rhizobium bacteria will not live until another year. In this case, it isn’t a hazardous product like treated seed, but it does represent a monetary loss because you can seldom return inoculant to the input supplier even if the boxes are unopened. An issue no one likes to talk about is spray tank leftovers. There’s seldom exactly the right amount to finish a job, so you’re left with five or 20 or maybe 50 gallons that have to be dumped. On top of that, you need to flush out the sprayer before adding the next product, perhaps multiple times with the addition of a cleansing product. The best you can do is to pick a spot where the chemical and rinsate will have minimal impact, but it isn’t pleasant to see puddles on the ground.

If you make a mistake with a chemical mix and end up with a tank full of jelly, you’ve got a major clean-out and disposal issue. As an industry, we are doing a good job of recycling chemical containers. Years ago, you would often see empty chemical jugs and pails lying around farmyards and field edges. Now, they’re largely being rinsed and returned to the input suppliers. Plus, many of the larger containers are returned for a sizable deposit. Most farms have a storage tank for waste oil, although the integrity of the vessel may leave something to be desired. Recycling programs are being initiated with the explosion in grain bag use, but there’s still more work to do. B y b e i n g g o o d s t e w a rd s a n d addressing disposal issues as an industry, perhaps we can forestall the heavy hand of government regulation.

y friend convinced me the other night to accompany her to the Mendel Art Gallery in Saskatoon. The exhibition was of prints, paintings and ceramics by David Thauberger of Regina. Thauberger received inspiration for many of his pieces by driving through rural Saskatchewan and taking pictures of grain elevators, small town diners, gas stations and houses. He then projected the images in his studio, where he would trace gigantic replicas of the scenes he gathered on his drives. Some of the wall-sized pieces were best observed by taking a few steps back to better grasp the scale of the massive sky-scapes. We later decided to enjoy the beautiful Saskatchewan sky first-hand and walk down to the river behind the gallery. We stood on the walking path and watched a beaver swim, as well as the beer cans float by, tossed in by a group of hooligans hiding in shrubs. It’s difficult to understand those who don’t care about the impressions they leave behind. It is not hard to pack out what you take in, and many people would be happy to return the empties for the bounty. Then a man and woman walking a Border Collie walked by, and for a moment I thought it was nice that others were using the space respectfully. But before I could finish that thought, he threw a wine bottle into the river and then looked over at us, as if to challenge us. He was literally standing right beside a garbage can. Just as Thauberger projects what he saw and then retraces the experience, we also project and retrace the world as we have experienced it. For many, evidently, it is still fashionable to buy, waste, repeat — to move forward and not consider how our wake affects the environment.  I don’t claim to know all the reasons or solutions for pollution, but some things are obvious — empties don’t belong in the river. Nor do oil and chemical jugs belong in our roadside ditches. It is the busy season for farmers right now, and producers have many miles to make. Still, please remember to secure empty containers in the back of your trucks, and dispose of them properly. And while you’re at it, a few plastic garbage bags inside your vehicle could help contain the sundry paper food wrappings and junk mail we sometimes see as we take in the scenic vistas along our country roads.

Therefore I suggest we have the perfect emissary for the teaching of the gospel to the Mafia in our prime minster, who considers himself to be a world statesman. Here he could really make use of his talents far better than interfering in the internal affairs of other countries, and bring Canada some much needed glory.

(Agriculture minister) Mr. (Gerry) Ritz, I am a small- to medium-sized farmer. I harvested about 50,000 bushels of wheat last fall. According to your CWB’s market newsletter, the Vancouver selling price has been about $11 per bu. this winter. Under the former Canadian Wheat Board, the traditional rule of thumb that farmers used was to subtract $1.50 per bu. from the average port selling price to determine what they would receive for their grain. This covered the board’s marketing cost, the grain company handling

fees and the rail transportation. Therefore, if you had not destroyed the Canadian Wheat Board, I would have received $9.50 per bu. That would have translated into a gross farm income of $475,000. With the wheat board gone, I am now receiving $5.50 per bu. instead of $9.50. Thanks to you I have been shortchanged $4 per bu. That translates into a reduction of $200,000 from my gross farm income. My return on wheat is now below the cost of production. You and prime minister (Stephen) Harper are responsible. Please send a cheque. Donn Dutchak, Rama, Sask.

BAITING SUCKERS To the Editor: A comment by John Stuart Mill (1806-1873): “Most conservatives are stupid; most stupid people are conservative.” I saw an interesting report about grain pricing and want to share some of the numbers with you. One of the last years we had the Canadian Wheat Board, sales were $5.1 billion. After the railways and elevators took their handling charges, farmers received $4.3 billion, just over 80 percent of the sales. Recently, the elevator companies were exporting wheat from Vancouver at about $11 a bushel, about $417 per tonne. To get grain to Vancouver, costs from Alberta to Manitoba are different, but the regulated tariffs average for the handling charges is about $77. The $340 per tonne left over is around 80 percent, about the same as when the CWB was involved. Farmers contract wheat at various prices. Right now the No. 2 CWRS 13.5 contract price is about $5.40 and was as low as $4.30. The report used $4.70 a bu., about $170, a tonne as an average price. Subtracting the $170 the farmer gets in his contract from $340 leaves $170 a tonne, which, back in CWB times, would eventually end up in farmers’ pockets. If we contracted $6 a bushel — $220 a tonne — we would have $120 a tonne still to come, in CWB days. Let us use these numbers to get an idea about what is happening. By the end of January, the Canadian Grain Commission reported nearly 10 million tonnes exported. Multiplying that number by the $170 a tonne, the CWB would have put into our pockets $1.5 billion so far this year. If we multiply by $120, it is still over $1 billion, and the crop year is not over. This money has gone astray. Is the word stolen too harsh a word? As a farmer, can you imagine what it would be like to get that much extra for your wheat? If Mill were alive and heard certain politicians saying farmers are currently better off than if they still had the wheat board, he would likely say his observation still holds true today. What makes it worse? Stephen Harper’s government hands out to farmers the odd million dollars for research, or for whatever, expecting them to vote Conservative. It does this after getting rid of the CWB, allowing thousands of millions of dollars to be stolen from farmers. If farmers are suckers enough to take the bait, and vote them in, does that not prove the second part of Mill’s comment? Lorne Jackson, Riverhurst, Sask.


Add More to your harvesting experience with attachments from John Deere.

To the Editor:

When you add more, you can do more.

There are no more public meetings to discuss farm policy and its implications. Insane farm policies are now made behind closed doors with government assisted Astroturf farm groups with little input from grassroots producers. If any democratically based farm

OPINION group opposes these policies, they get shunned and ridiculed by governments. The insanity of the Ottawa policies pushed by a failed ostrich farmer and a slick city boy are only exceeded by their lack of respect for the truth and democracy. Yet the Saskatchewan government has endorsed almost every nasty farm policy developed by the (Stephen) Harper government. Starting with the loss of the single desk CWB, premier Brad Wall alongside his agriculture minister, Bob Bjornerud, stayed silent while the CWB was destroyed. They did not respect basic democratic principles enough to work with the Manitoba government in trying to convince the Harper government to allow farmers to vote on the type of system they want. Because farmers worked together through the CWB, we had all the tools

necessary to get the full value of our grain. The single desk created value for farmers selling directly to end use customers around the world — the middlemen did not take it all. Our income was enhanced through pooling, organic sales, producer direct sales, payment options, and orderly and fair grain movement from farmgate to port to waiting ships. This was all destroyed with a stroke of a pen while premier Wall played the nice guy with Ottawa while ignoring what was happening to farmers and others. When does playing nice change into shortsighted cowardice? It looks like premier Wall and the Astroturf farm groups sat silent on important farm issues like the CWB and the Canadian Grain Commission, hoping to get favours and appointments or at least not face the wrath of the federal government.

I would say to premier Wall that your government’s policies remind me of a teenager who inherits a large farm and lives for the day by selling off the land. Like the foolish teenager, you have created the counterfeit of a prosperous economy. The proof your foolish ideology is unsustainable is that your support of Ottawa has caused large financial losses to the renewable part of the Saskatchewan economy: billions of dollars lost with the single desk CWB, Indian Head tree nursery, community pastures, lost grain shipping opportunities, excessive grain company profits, etc. Being nice to the federal government has had little benefit, unless you are still waiting and hoping for the pasta plant in Regina. I hope, premier Wall, you would hire Danny Williams (former Newfoundland premier) to teach the socalled farm leaders and the Saskatch-


ewan government that the people of Saskatchewan come first, not the Harper government. Hopefully you do this before we in Saskatchewan become a have-not province. Eric Sagan, Melville, Sask.

AMBASSADOR WALL To the Editor: As reported in the Regina Leader Post March 11, (Saskatchewan) premier (Brad) Wall is already staking his ground for what kind of job he wants from the people of Saskatchewan when he is done with politics. He has let it be known that he wants to be an ambassador. It seems to this old farmer, ambassadors always walk around in nice clean clothes, and

with clean hands, and perhaps most are waited on. I can’t help thinking back when Brad Wall was the leader of the opposition, and he remarked on the (John) Gormley show if he ever became premier he would go to war with the unionized workers in Saskatchewan. There are good unions in Saskatchewan that Wall is afraid to touch, like nurses and teachers, etc., but a lot of workers Wall has terminated for no good reason, and not a peep who gets the boot. I think it is a safe bet a number of families have seen their lives become much more difficult in these good times. Is it really too difficult for the media to sniff out what is actually happening to many workers under this Wall government? Henry Neufeld, Waldeck, Sask.


Developing coping skills SPIRITUAL VIGNETTES



our children are not your children,” Kahlil Gibran wrote. “They come through you but not from you. They belong not to you.” Those are hard words for some parents to hear because they feel it is important they protect and try to mould their children and fend off anything that threatens them. Those feelings are important, but they can be taken to the extreme. The norm seems to be to seek out parenting classes, child rearing manuals and favorite websites for instruction.  So they acquire a lot of information, but experience and wisdom may be missing. We can’t sift out all the bumps that life offers. If this instructional approach works, why are kids overly stressed, teenagers incapacitated by fear of failure and adults always ready to blame the other guy? How does one develop coping skills? A friend speaks of growing up in Holland during the war. Word was that invaders could take prisoners at any moment. So for two years she wore three sets of clothes to bed at night because her only possession might be “the clothes she had on her back.” Stressful indeed, but she developed invaluable coping skills. Holding hands too tightly, intervening at every turn, acting as if we are specially privileged weakens us.  It is important to accept life’s challenges and learn how to work through them. Accept failure as part of life. There will always be bullies at kindergarten, zits on prom night, restrictions, aging, death. That’s life. “God didn’t promise sun without rain, joy without sorrow, peace without pain. But God did promise light for the way, strength for the day and undying love.” — source unknown Joyce Sasse writes for the Canadian Rural Church Network at www.canadian

Saskatchewan crown land strategy ‘good compromise’ Ecological value | Almost half of the 3.5 million acres are considered to have high ecological value and will not be sold BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Saskatchewan touched off a dispute with environmentalists four years ago when it announced that protected crown land could be sold to agricultural lessees. The government has now announced a strategy that suits everyone. The Southern Conservation Land Management Strategy was developed by a committee representing both sides of the debate and announced May 12 by environment

minister Ken Cheveldayoff and agriculture minister Lyle Stewart. The legislative amendments to the Wildlife Habitat Protection Act and the Conservation Easements Amendment Act, which were both passed in 2010, have now finally been proclaimed. The strategy represents the regulations that go with that legislative framework. Lessees will still be able to buy certain land, but all parties now have a better idea of its ecological worth. A computer model, the Crown Land Ecological Assessment Tool, evaluated all 3.5 million acres of pro-

tected crown land and placed them into three categories. As a result, 48 percent of the land, or 1.7 million acres, is considered to have high ecological value and will not be sold. About 1.3 million acres are considered to have moderate value and could be sold with the protection of a crown conservation easement. About 525,000 acres, or 15 percent, have low ecological value and could be sold without any restrictions. The strategy also allows for vacant crown land with ecological value to be placed under the Wildlife Habitat

Protection Act in the future. Stakeholders said they are pleased with the outcome. Lorne Scott of Nature Saskatchewan said he thinks the result of four years of discussion was a good compromise. He said the new technology makes the value of the land quite clear. The assessment found that some quarters were completely cultivated and likely should never have been designated under the act. “There’s other quarter sections at the bottom of Tobin Lake, which probably nobody will buy,� he said.

6Ζ*18312: )5(()25 0217+6





















On the other hand, Scott said some vacant crown land should maybe be under the act, such as wetlands in the Yorkton area that no one has leased for decades but are useful for wildlife. Similarly, land along the forest fringe might be a good candidate. Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation president David Pindaric said he supported the refinements to the process and lauded the co-operative efforts to make the process work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We support the notion that farmers are good stewards of the land. I am,â&#x20AC;? said Pezderic, who farms near Asquith. Harold Martens, president of the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association, said conser vationists shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel threatened by the idea that cattle producers want to own their own land. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve practiced good stewardship over the last 105, 110 years, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see that changing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity maybe for them to do things different, but it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be jeopardizing anything related to stewardship.â&#x20AC;? Stewart said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect farmers and ranchers to harm their environment because they rely on the land, but fines for non-compliance under the conservation easements legislation have increased substantially. Maximum fines have increased from $2,000 to $100,000 for individuals and from $50,000 to $500,000 for corporations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the ability under the new act for stop-work orders, equipment seizures, court orders, all sorts of compliance tools and enforcement tools,â&#x20AC;? he said. Officials said 1.8 million acres could theoretically be sold, but even all of the land in the lowest category wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be sold because of other factors such as gravel and oil and gas. Cheveldayoff said land sales could be worth as much as $80 to $100 million, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible to know. Seven percent of sales revenue will go to the Fish and Wildlife Development Fund for conservation and habitat projects; the remainder goes to the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general revenue fund. Letters are now going out to lessees to let them know how their land is classified and how to buy it. The crown land sale incentive program, which the agriculture ministry has offered for the past several years, is in its final year. It currently offers a two percent discount on the purchase price. Stewart said that will be available to land in the low ecological value category, but land sold with an easement on it will not be eligible. A Southern Crown Land Conservation Committee will now be formed.

UPOV 91 support continues to grow Plant breeders’ rights | Canadian Federation of Agriculture is the latest group to back legislation BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Another high-profile organization has added its name to a coalition of farm groups that supports amendments to Canada’s plant breeders’ rights legislation. The Canadian Federation of Agriculture announced May 7 that it has joined Partners in Innovation, which supports Ottawa’s plan to update Canada’s PBR laws and ratify a controversial international agreement known as UPOV 91. “Accessibility to research is incredibly important to keep our farmers on the forefront, moving forward in the marketplace and maintaining productive harvests,” said CFA president Ron Bonnett. “Adoption of Bill C-18 and its proposed changes to Plant Breeders’ Rights will address obstacles that impede the competitiveness of Canadian farmers.” In December, the federal government introduced Bill C-18, a farreaching bill that proposes amendments to Canada’s Plant Breeders’ Rights Act. Proposed amendments would grant plant breeders and seed companies greater control over intellectual property and give them more flexibility in collecting royalties on the new seed products they develop. Plant breeders generally support the proposed amendments. However, some farm groups view them as an affront to farmer interests, saying they will restrict access to seed and increase production costs. Bill C-18 is currently awaiting second reading in the House of Commons. Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz has indicated that he would like to see the bill enacted before Aug. 1.

Partners in Innovation was established last year to support Ottawa’s plan to update PBR legislation. CFA is the 17th organization to join the coalition. Other partners include the Alberta Barley Commission, the Canadian Seed Trade Association, Grain Growers of Canada, the Manitoba Pulse Growers Association, the Prairie Oat Growers Association, the Alberta Wheat Commission, the Barley Council of Canada, Mustard 21 Inc. and the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association. In an open letter made public May 9, Partners in Innovation said its members are growing “more and more concerned that farmers and the general public may be forming opinions based on … incorrect information.” “We recognize that some individuals, who perhaps do not fully understand the proposed amendments,” have been very vocal in expressing concerns, the letter said. “We need to stress that these concerns are not based in fact.… The fact is, the greatest impact on farmers of amended PBR legislation will be access to new genetics and improved crop varieties that will increase productivity, deliver higher yields, and open more market opportunities for farm production.” Cereals Canada, which represents various commodities and stakeholder groups in the Canadian cereal grains industry, added its name to the partnership in late April. Cereals Canada president Cam Dahl said updating PBR legislation will encourage innovation that is critical to the growth and development of Canada’s cereals sector. “We risk losing ground to our competitors if we fail to innovate,” Dahl said in an April 30 news release.

Dairy officials pen breeding strategy Holstein industry plans for 2020 | Canadian Breed Strategy endorses genomics BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

The direction of Holstein breeding, and by extension a large part of the Canadian dairy industry, has been mapped out through the year 2020. A Canadian Breed Strategy, consisting of five over-arching goals for Holstein production, was unveiled in late April after three years of dairy industry consultation across the country. “It’s a bit of a road map for the future,” said Nova Scotia dairy producer Henry Van der Linden. As a Holstein Canada board member and breed advisory committee chair, he was instrumental in developing the document, which has five major goals: • enhance selection criteria to provide the best genetics for Canadian Holstein producers and the world • develop and maintain animal evaluation systems that assess trouble-free Holsteins

• intensify collaboration between industry partners • support Dairy Farmers of Canada to implement national traceability for dairy cattle • cultivate young leaders as advocates for the dairy industry Van der Linden said genomics technology is the biggest change he has seen in the dairy industry in recent years, and genomics is part of the first strategic goal. “The speed of genomics has a lot of people concerned, and the adoption of genomic testing … it’s slower than I thought it would be, really,” he said. “To me, it’s another tool to use along with classification and milk reporting and our bull proofs. Its another source of information.” Van der Linden said he has seen good results from use of genomics in his own dairy operation. Though producers might be leery of using young sires, the proof is in the animals. “These young heifers are calving

today and they’re good looking solid young cows that milk well.” Part of the goal is to aggressively promote Canadian Holsteins as dairy-strong animals with good longevity in the herd. The goal regarding evaluation systems is related to increased use of robotics at dairies, said Van der Linden. The systems capture data for producers that wasn’t previously available. Although proprietary, the industry could benefit from use of that data if producers will share it. Holstein Canada has also committed to assist Dairy Farmers of Canada with its traceability plans, Van der Linden said. Plans to attract young entrants to the industry will initially involve making strong connections with agricultural schools. Developing programs that will help with succession is also a theme because the cost of quota is a hindrance to new entrants.

AccuWeather is adding to the growing chorus of weather forecasters calling for a cooler-than-normal summer for much of the Canadian Prairies. “We expect the cool weather to dominate across the eastern prairie region, which is not good news,” said senior meteorologist Brett Anderson. “It certainly looks like a slow start to summer across the eastern Prairies.” Manitoba and eastern Saskatchewan will feel the influence of a low pressure system over Hudson Bay, which will deliver cool conditions throughout June and July. “Once we get into August, things might flip a little bit,” said Anderson. Rainfall is expected to be near normal in the southern portion of the region between Winnipeg and Regina. Farmers further to the north can expect drier conditions. The forecast for western Alberta calls for warmer-than-normal conditions because of a high pressure system anchored on the West Coast. The warm weather will be most pronounced for areas west of Calgary. It will also be dry in that region. “As we get further to the east, the influence of the high pressure will be much less,” said Anderson. He expects eastern Alberta and western Saskatchewan to experience near normal temperatures, although high soil moisture levels could delay the warming that typically happens in June. “A lot of evaporation is going to be taking place and that’s a cooling process, so we’re going to have to fight through that,” said Anderson. Eastern Alberta and western Saskatchewan will likely experience more thunderstorm activity than usual in July, especially in the corridor from Edmonton through Regina. “That’s going to be the battle zone between the heat to the west under that high pressure ridge and then the cool weather further to the east.” Despite the increased storm activity, he is forecasting near normal rainfall for the central Prairies. Anderson is confident in his temperature outlook because the models all seem to be pointing toward a cooler summer in the eastern Prairies. “Our confidence level is probably a little bit higher than it normally is for a summer forecast,” he said. Predicting rainfall is trickier because systems come and go and move around, but the general pattern is for drier conditions in the eastern Prairies and near normal for most of the West. AccuWeather’s forecast comes on the heels of similar outlooks by two other weather service providers. Environment Canada believes there is a 50 to 60 percent chance of below normal temperatures for the prairie region in May, June and July compared to a 10 to 20 percent chance of above normal temperatures. The U.S. National Weather Service has a comparable outlook. Anderson said the bottom line is that more doom and gloom is ahead for the eastern Prairies after a nasty winter and horrible spring. He said it is unusual to have such a widespread chill as Canada has experienced this spring from Alberta through Quebec. “I’ve never seen it like that before.”






B.C. tweaks ALR reform details but provincial zones to remain

CP top official gets praise, another year in driver’s seat

One size doesn’t fit all | Ag minister says legislation aims to protect farmland

Company pleased with Hunter Harrison’s performance


Hundreds of letters and petitions have forced the British Columbia government to change how it will refor m the Agr icultural Land Reserve. “The comments were as diverse as the province itself,” said agriculture minister Norm Letnick. Despite the letters of protest, the province will stick with its controversial decision to divide the province into two zones. However, it will provide more clarity about the changes that can happen to agricultural land in Zone 2, the area in the central and northern part of the province with less urban pressure. “Even with the changes to the legislation, the Agricultural Land Commission continues to decide how land is to be best used independently of anyone else, including me,” Letnick said during a May 6 news conference after introducing changes to the proposed bill. He said different practices and development pressures across the province means “one size fits all” rules don’t work when governing agriculture land in the province.

“Keeping Zone 1 status quo will protect farmland facing the greatest pressure,” he said. The primary goal in Zone 2 will be to preserve agricultural land, he added, but the land commission will also be able to consider other factors, including economic, cultural and regional. “We’re providing them with a little flexibility, so they are required in Zone 2 to look at these lesser important but still important conditions,” he said. “That is to make it very clear that our main goal is always to support agriculture.” The land commission would be able to look at things that can’t be done under the current legislation, including farm-related expansion, large processing facilities, co-operatives, agriculture industry facilities and cogeneration plants. “These are the kinds of things currently the act does not provide the ALC with that flexibility.” Those agriculture industries would not be allowed in Zone 1 in the more populated south. “We believe the urbanization pressures in Zone 1 are very, very strong, stronger than they are in Zone 2, therefore Zone 1 will stay as

status quo and Zone 2 will provide the ALC with a little flexibility of looking at other conditions.” Only 1.1 percent of land in the province is considered prime agricultural land. About five percent is considered suitable for agriculture. The province introduced the ALR almost 40 years ago to protect its valuable and limited supply of farmland from development pressures. In a news release, British Columbia Agriculture Council chair Stan Vander Waal said the government has adopted some of the organization’s suggestions but stuck with the concept of two agricultural zones, which the council opposes. “Although government is moving forward with amendments to the proposed bill, BCAC remains firmly opposed to two zones. BCAC supports a one zone system that provides reasonable opportunities for regional representatives to consider community need.” He said he is pleased that the council will have a chance to be part of a working group to help develop the regulations for Bill 24. “BCAC has always been committed to preserving agriculture land, but we are also committed to preserving farmers.”


American railroad executive Hunter Harrison has agreed to stay on as head of Canadian Pacific Railway for an additional year. CP’s board of directors announced May 7 that Harrison has agreed to a one-year contract extension, which allows him to stay on as the company’s top executive until 2017. Harrison joined CP in June 2012, not long after he retired as chief executive officer at Canada’s other major railway company, Canadian National Railway. “When Hunter was brought in to lead the transformational change of this iconic company, the agreement was for four years, plus an option for an additional year,” said CP chair Gary Colter in a May 7 news release. “In seeing CP’s rapid turnaround under Hunter’s leadership, the board was unanimous in wanting him to stay on until 2017 and we are extremely pleased he has accepted.” Despite widespread criticism from grain shippers and other railway customers, CP announced record revenues of $6.1 billion in 2013 and net income of $875 million, or $4.96 per


share, up from $484 million or $2.79 per share in 2012. Harrison took a variety of steps aimed at cutting costs and increasing railway efficiency. Among those moves was a workforce adjustment plan aimed at eliminating 4,500 jobs at CP by 2016. Harrison has been vocally critical of federal government plans to impose tougher regulations on Canada’s major railway carriers to ensure more reliable service for the grain industry. “I am honoured the board of directors asked me to remain in a leadership role for an extra year,” said Harrison. “Even though CP has experienced phenomenal success in a short period of time, there remains a lot to accomplish over the next three years to grow this company even further with our customers and shareholders.”

Province blamed for farmland loss in Alta.

Alberta guide addresses landowner questions

Lack of consultation | Official says 15,200 acres were lost to development between 1996 and 2009 BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

EDMONTON — The discussion about farmland fragmentation by municipalities is a moot point because the provincial government controls most major land decisions, says a county councillor. Richard Harpe of Grande Prairie County said the county has more than 5,000 oil and gas wells, plus batteries, gas plants and the roads that lead to the industrial sites. The loss of farmland is staggering, he added. “We have no say in any of it,” said Harpe, who estimated each well uses seven acres of farmland and the batteries and gas plant sites use even more. “It’s all happening on another level of government.” Farmland will continue to be sold for urban development, roads and oil and gas development until a unified voice forms to speak about the issue, he said during an Alberta Land Institute conference. He said the government will hire consultants when it wants to build a bigger highway through a municipality, but the consultants don’t consult with the municipality. Instead, they just present the project. “They hire consultants who do the planning in isolation,” he said. “The loss of farmland has more to do with who has control.” The worry about the loss of farmland motivated British Columbia to establish the Agricultural Land Reserve almost 40 years ago, said Richard Bullock, chair of B.C.’s Agricultural Land Commission. He said there was a need to preserve valuable farmland, considering that only 1.1 percent of B.C.’s farmland is considered prime farmland and only five to six percent is considered suitable for agriculture.


Urban sprawl, oil and gas developments and commercial developments are removing some of Alberta’s prime farmland from agricultural use. | FILE PHOTO “You have more agriculture in the city of Edmonton than the whole Okanagan Valley. We don’t have any,” said Bullock. “If it wasn’t for the ALR, we wouldn’t see any agriculture industry in the Lower Mainland or the Okanagan.” He said Saskatchewan and Alberta have more farmland, but it’s important not to squander it, especially along the busy Highway 2 corridor between Calgary and Edmonton. “You’re considerably different here, but by God, ag is important. You cannot be in agriculture unless you have land, and we have absolutely none to waste.” Bullock said it wouldn’t be hard to establish an ALR in Alberta, but it would take considerable political will. There was a huge outcry when the land reserve was established in B.C. but looking back, it was necessary.

You cannot be in agriculture unless you have land, and we have absolutely none to waste. RICHARD BULLOCK AGRICULTURAL LAND COMMISSION CHAIR

He said the ALR forces industry, governments and city planners to consider other alternatives before approaching the commission to use ALR land for non-agricultural uses. The commission receives 500 to 700 applications a year for subdivisions, inclusions or exclusions of land in the ALR. “Rarely do we make a decision that pleases everyone. In my time we haven’t made one.”

Harvey Buckley of Action for Agriculture said the fragmentation and conversion of Alberta farmland is shocking. He said Alberta lost 95 quarters of land per year to development between 1996 and 2009, and the losses continue. “We are in a precarious situation with our land that very few Albertans understand,” he said. “We need to avoid an economy of plunder. If we don’t look after our landscapes, who will?” Buckley said there is no single solution to saving farmland, but he believes one of the biggest roadblocks is the capital gains tax on intergenerational transfer of land. “The ability to pass land from one generation to the next is restricted by our tax system,” he said. Buckley also suggested using conservation easements, conservation offsets and conservation directives.

EDMONTON — Confused about property rights in Alberta? So are a lot of people. A Guide to Propert y Rights in Alberta, was released during the Alberta Land Institute conference May 7. “There is a great deal of confusion among Albertans as to which expectations, with respect to land, are going to be protected,” co-author Eran Kaplinsky said in a news release announcing the guide. “The two most common questions are: just how far can the government go in regulating my land and will I have recourse of the courts to be entitled to financial compensation under government regulations?” The guide contains information on property rights and the law, compensation mechanisms and a review of existing legislation. “In the last six years, the Alberta government has passed new laws that many people have viewed as imposing serious restrictions on the rights to use property,” said coauthor David Percy. “What struck me is the enormity of the disconnect between what people believed property rights were and what the law actually said property rights are.” The guide was produced by the Alberta Land Institute, an independent research institute based at the University of Alberta, which conducts research and policy for better land management.

Putting medical care on the right path Patient care pathways | Process would see doctor assess patient and hand off to next specialist to continue treatment BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

In an ideal world, patients would go to a hospital, change into a gown and all the physicians and specialists would then come to them, says Neil Fraser. That scenario isn’t so far off, the president of Medtronic of Canada Ltd. told a recent Regina Chamber of Commerce meeting. It would also be a boon to people from rural and remote areas who have to travel long distances for appointments and treatment, he added. Medtronic, one of the largest medical device companies in the world, is best known for devices such as insulin pumps and pacemakers. However, Fraser said its role is changing as it works with health-care providers to provide patients with better access to technologies and devices. The company formed a “hospital solutions” team several years ago to help make those improvements. Fraser said the process has been implemented with great success at Maastricht University’s hospital in the Netherlands. The facility has 750 beds and more than 100,000 cardiovascular clinic visits a year. “Before this project started, a patient might have to visit the hospital seven times to visit different departments to get the diagnosis and treatment required,” Fraser said. The hospital, with Medtronic’s help, initiated 70 projects to establish patient pathways and create efficiency. “They literally redesigned the whole hospital so that all of the specialists involved in cardiac care were in one central area,” he said. Fraser said the patient experience greatly improved. Seven visits were cut to just one. “During that appointment, the patient would check in once, change once and the doctors would come to the patient in a very organized way,” he said. “The hospital realized about

$6 million in annual savings, representing a seven-fold return on investment.” Treatment can be remotely monitored, which also reduces return visits. Fraser said patient pathways are critical to the entire process, and Saskatchewan is working to establish them for different types of conditions.

He said the pathway alleviates the bottlenecks of patients who aren’t the right candidates. For example, a patient who doesn’t need to see a surgeon might see one anyway because of the way the system is currently set up. He used the example of low back pain to describe how a pathway is forged. The person in pain goes to a primary care doctor, who assesses

whether it is acute pain that could be managed by medication or chronic pain that requires another action. “Is it a mechanical problem that might require surgery? Is it a medical problem that would require pharmaceuticals or other forms of intervention?” Fraser said. “How do you get from primary care to maybe tertiary care and then out of the system and back home?” He said there could be as many as 500 patient pathways, and the province has established 10 or 20. “I think Saskatchewan’s patient care pathways are accelerating the appropriate use of technologies, and what was happening before is that patients would get stuck at the primary care level,” Fraser said. “Doctors might put them on a medication, which is suboptimal, when they really should get a more advanced treatment. So it’s part of educating primary care people through these appropriate care pathways.” Lean is also part of this process. Medtronic uses the management system in its own company and applauds the Saskatchewan health ministry for implementing it as part of this new approach to health care. Fraser said Medtronic staff cut an 18-month backlog by using Lean Sigma to manage explanted cardiac devices. “Lean is not a panacea because you have to start with the right process,” he told the meeting. Fraser said Saskatchewan has taken a bold step and understands what needs to be done to make a dramatic improvement. “They just need to make sure that what they’re making Lean is an appropriate process,” he said in an interview. “ You can’t have Lean without studying the patient pathway for optimal care and outcomes. Put the two of them together and you’ve got something.”


LOOKING TO THE FUTURE Neil Fraser, president of Medtronic of Canada Ltd., was asked at a recent Regina Chamber of Commerce meeting for the top three challenges in health care: • management of chronic diseases such as diabetes “It’s first of all really difficult to pinpoint the complex needs of patients with multiple chronic conditions. What we’ve seen is that those patients can represent a very high proportion of the health care spend.” • mental health care and the fact that it has been largely overlooked “If you look at the challenges of emergency medicine, a lot of people with mental health issues show up in emergency.” • focus on facilities versus managing with technology, at home or in the community “We’re very hospital focused. Particularly with chronic conditions, it’s probably not a good use of taxpayers’ money having those patients readmitted to hospitals.” Fraser presented information that highlights key challenges: • Diabetes will cost $8 billion per year by 2016. • About 111,000 people in Saskatchewan will have diabetes by 2020. • Mental illness costs $51 million per year, and chronic disease costs $93 million. “By 2020, depression will be the leading cause of disability,” he said.

Athabasca Sand Dunes breathtaking TALES FROM THE ROAD



he east bank of the William River is clothed in dark green jack pine forest typical of the north. But the west side seems like a totally different world, with massive banks of golden sand rising 30 metres straight out of the water. We pull our canoe into shore and struggle up the steep slopes to the top. Sand stretches to the western horizon, as we gaze over the largest sand dunes in Canada, the largest this far north anywhere in the world. Last summer, we returned to our favourite place on Earth, the Athabasca Sand Dunes of northern Saskatchewan. It had been a few years since our last trip, and we were delighted to find that little had changed, other than some evidence of forest fires. Isolation and protection in a provincial park are preserving this enchanting landscape so far. Extending for 100 kilometres along the south shore of Lake Athabasca, these dunes are unique. It’s as if a chunk of desert had been plopped in the middle of northern forest and lake lands. And if that isn’t weird enough, rivers slice through the dunes, making a canoe the best way to get around. We start with a float plane trip to the mouth of the William River. Many years ago, we canoed down the river as it raced over frothing rapids and cut through forest and sand. This time we’re paddling upstream. The last 18 kilometres is rapid free, but rocks are replaced with the

sand-choked river spreading into a shallow braided stream, a half kilometre wide in places. Paddling against the current is always a struggle, but in shallow water it’s difficult to get our paddles deep enough for powerful strokes. We constantly zigzag across the wide river searching for deeper channels. The next day, we reach the end of the rapids, a stunning landscape where the William makes its dramatic transformation from stonefilled torrent to watery sandbox. Back of the banks are endemic plants that grow nowhere else in the world, along with dozens of rare plants for which these dunes are famous. We find fuzzy felt-leaved willow, delicate strands of sand chickweed that seem to thrive in pure sand, and Athabasca thrift resembling tiny pink candy apples. A two-hour hike west brings us to the giant dunes. About 40 monsters lie in the centre of the dune field, many rising over 30 metres high and stretching a kilometre long, their knife-edge crests flowing in sinuous curves. Climbing to the top, we keep reminding ourselves that we’re still in Saskatchewan, not the Sahara. On Lake Athabasca’s south shore, we explore even more gems, endless beaches, dunes swallowing entire bushes and exhumed forests where ancient desiccated tree trunks stand like ghostly sentinels guarding the bay. When our pilot, Cliff, picks us up, we load the canoe and gear, then swoop over the William River. Looking down over the braided section and expansive delta, the William magically becomes a giant abstract painting. Multi-hued shades of gold, beige and copper reveal varying depths of underwater sandbars, while abovewater sand appears white, and deep channels a chocolate brown.

CENTRE: Canoe is the best way to take in the unique scenery. ABOVE: Spruce tree roots stand atop a sand dune near Thomson Bay. Swirling colours remind us of butterscotch pudding marbled with whipped cream. The William is full of surprises, but saves its grand finale for those who fly over. This certainly isn’t the easiest place to visit. There are no facilities. Options include chartering a float plane to drop you off or arranging boat trans-

port from a Lake Athabasca community. We like to travel by canoe, but some visitors get around by hiking. Either way, you have to be fully prepared for self-sufficient wilderness camping. Arlene and Robin Karpan are well-travelled writers based in Saskatoon. Contact:

Crowds always rose to give Shirley McClellan a round of applause when she entered the room, whether she was delivering a government speech or opening a bull sale. The accolades were often a surprise to the former Alberta agriculture minister, who served during the height of the BSE crisis in 2003. “Something like that might be a shock to me, but at that time … people thought, ‘she is our leader,’ ” she said after speaking at the Advancing Women conference held in Calgary April 28-29. More than 350 women heard the former deputy premier describe her journey from growing up near Hanna, Alta., to becoming a rural politician. Most recently, she has been chancellor of the University of Lethbridge and the scholar in residence with the University of Alberta’s agriculture and rural economy faculties. She and her husband, L loyd, farmed near New Brigden. Their son, Mitchell, works with them now, and daughter Tami is a teacher. McClellan was first elected to the provincial legislature in 1987 and won her seat six times. She held key cabinet posts first under premier Don Getty and then Ralph Klein. McClellan looks back at people like her grandmother, who possessed a strong spirit and work ethic. She praised pioneers who fought for women’s legal rights in Canada, paved the way for women today to take on the world. “These journeys that these young women will embark on, the world is wide open to them,” she said. McClellan admired how the Famous Five fought in court to have women recognized as persons in 1929. Life was difficult for those early pathfinders, but McClellan never felt gender was an issue as she travelled the world on trade missions. As deputy premier, she had a specific task. “My job was to ensure that rural issues, rural concerns, rural interests were at our table. I took that to heart and was very proud to carry that role.” She said she worked hard to remind her city based cabinet colleagues that t h e w e a l t h s e e n i n d ow nt ow n Edmonton, Red Deer and Calgary came from the oil and gas, mines, forests and farms in rural Alberta. McClellan appreciates the legacy of the past, but she said she has encountered other women over the years who also had a profound influence on her life, including Lois Hole, Anne McLellan and Indira Samarasekera. “I never felt being a woman mattered. They were always respectful. People out in my area take you for what you are.”





Farm production driven by consumer demand Farm expansion | Family plans to add Christmas tree sales to their meat processing plant and U-pick operation BY KAREN MORRISON SASKATOON NEWSROOM

RESOURCE, Sask. — For Mark and Susan Hodgson, it’s the little farm that grew. Their quarter section farm in northeastern Saskatchewan came with a small market garden when they bought it almost a decade ago. T h e f a r m ha s s i n c e g row n t o include more fruit and vegetables, meat processing and agritourism. “You follow your passion and it’s where you end up,” said Mark. Added Susan: “It just kind of happened.” Susan, who trained as both a travel agent and licensed practical nurse, today works as a special care aide at a long-term care facility. Mark worked as a welder and farm labourer and in the oil patch and chuck wagon circuit before turning to farming full time. “I never knew what I wanted to be, but I wanted to work for myself,” said Mark. Their operation follows a business plan that includes strawberries, raspberries and a wide range of vegetables. They installed an abattoir and meat processing plant for wild game and domestic animals on the farm last year and also offer bonfires to groups and sleigh rides pulled by their four Clydesdale horses. “It all ties in together,” said Susan. When one business winds up for the season, another one begins, she added. The meat plant provides steady business for Mark in winter, as will the Christmas trees when they are ready for market in five years. Hunting was part of the lifestyle when Mark grew up near Melfort, Sask., so processing meat was familiar territory. A limited number of abattoirs means a steady business, Mark said. The family rents out 120 acres of cropland, keeping the remainder for pasture for their animals and market gardens. Their gardens are not organic but are grown without chemicals. “We stay away from anything that

Mark Hodgson feeds the Clydesdale horses, used for some riding but mainly to pull sleighs full of visitors at his family’s diversified farm operation near Melfort, Sask. | KAREN MORRISON PHOTOS requires chemicals,” said Susan, who once worked for a British Columbia market gardener and grew up on a farm near Makwa, Sask. Added Mark: “We’re not organic but we practise pest-free management.” Susan said it means a lot of hand weeding, but the reward is control over the food they produce. “We want good food for the kids,” she said. The farm benefits from soil that holds moisture well and uses drip irrigation systems. High tunnels help control their growing environment, increase temperatures and extend the season into November. The Hodgsons replace their strawberry crowns annually to avoid cutting runners. This year they will plant 40,000 new ones. Change is their only constant. Mark originally built the meat shop as a welding shed but changed gears when the recession hit and jobs dried up. They receive help in the operation from their children, Katrina, 14, Brayden, 11, and Tyson, 7, and Mark’s parents, Larry and Sandi. This year, the family also plans to hire 10 casual workers as they increase production to supply Co-op stores. Katrina helps in the gardens while Brayden prefers building or “anything that doesn’t involve gardening,” he said.

ABOVE: Susan Hodgson carries sausages from the freezer in the meat plant. LEFT: Katrina and Brayden Hodgson enjoy their farm lifestyle.

The Hodgsons promote their goods through Facebook and signs on the highway, selling most of their goods by word of mouth, at a farmers market and through a U-pick fruit operation. They prefer as many on-farm sales as possible and also deliver preordered produce boxes and meat orders into Melfort. “A lot of our marketing is really telling everyone we’re proud of what we do and that reflects when we talk with people,” said Mark.

“We don’t want to just make a sale but want to know people.” Mark said demand directs their supply, and they have had trouble keeping ahead of orders. “Ultimately, it’s what the consumer wants,” he said. “Where it goes year by year depends on where the consumer drives us.” All the Hodgsons enjoy the freedom the farm gives them and the opportunities to enjoy nearby lakes, volunteer in the community and participate in sports and recreation.

“It’s a good way to raise kids,” Susan said about farm life. They are also members of producer groups, including the Saskatchewan Fruit Growers Association and the Prairie Fresh Food Corp. They believe in transparency in their operation and invite the public to their farm during the Northeast Local Food Producers’ Open Farm Days each August. “It’s a good way to build relationships,” said Mark. “We don’t hide anything. There are no secrets.”


Daughter needs to develop friendship with mom’s boyfriend SPEAKING OF LIFE



I am a single parent female with an eight-year-old daughter.

Her dad lives and works in Toronto and only gets to see her at Christmas and summer vacations. I have recently been dating a great guy. We have fun together. I know that he would like to move in with us and that my daughter is against the idea. I am worried that the whole thing between him and my daughter could cause serious problems for all of us. What do you think I could do to ease the situation?


I would suggest that you hold off on any changes until you are convinced that your boyfriend respects your relationship with your daughter and she respects your relations with him. They do not have to like each other but they need to be respectful. If you and your boyfriend get together, you are asking your daughter to develop a relationship with him that she has no control over. The enthusiasm you see in him becoming a part of your family could

just as easily turn into him later l e av i n g y o u a n d l e av i n g y o u r daughter feeling abandoned in the process. You may be able to handle the hurt of breaking up, but I wonder if your daughter can. Your boyfriend and your daughter need to figure out how they can better deal with each other. He does not need to be her dad because she already has one. Your daughter has your support as a parent for those important guidelines.

Your boyfriend could be a friend to your daughter. All of us need friends, and if the two of them spent time learning about each other, you might find the respect you need from her for your relationship with your boyfriend. You may also find the respect from him for your parental responsibilities. Jacklin Andrews is a family counsellor from Saskatchewan. Contact: jandrews@





Tender asparagus a spring treat for the taste buds TEAM RESOURCES



ay is such a pleasure. We experience the warmer weather, smell the freshly turned soil and budding plants and enjoy snapping off fresh asparagus. Asparagus is packed with nutrients such as vitamins A,C, E and K, chromium, antioxidants and fibre. Roasting asparagus is easy and helps reduce the chance of overcooking. To start, prepare the asparagus by rinsing the spears and removing the tough ends by bending until they snap. Heat the oven to 425 F (220 C). Toss the asparagus in either olive oil or butter, season with salt and pepper and lay out in a single layer on a baking dish or pan. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, depending on the size of the spear. Sprinkle with lemon juice if desired. This can also be prepared on a grill in a baking dish.

Artist’s paintings take viewer on prairie road trip Show what you know | Rural scenes on canvas BY WILLIAM DEKAY SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Artist David Thauberger celebrates the Prairies by showcasing some of its most endearing and iconic images. From looming wooden grain elevators to his grandfather’s farmyard, and from false front stores on main street to clapboard houses and community halls, he focuses on what he knows well. The Saskatchewan artist’s work is currently on a national tour, Road Trips and Other Diversions, which includes stops at the Mendel Art Gallery in Saskatoon and MacKenzie Art Gallery in Regina. The exhibit provides an overview of his 40 plus year career, which includes about 70 paintings, prints and ceramic works. Sandra Fraser, curator for the Mendel, said people are surprised at the range of his work and subject matter. “It expands their understanding of what he’s achieved,” she said. “The thing that people respond to is the kind of pop art aesthetic with this prairie imagery. The combination of that has given him a particular voice.” Thauberger, who grew up on the family’s wheat farm near Holdfast, Sask., said the idea of pursuing art

never crossed his mind. Playing hockey and baseball were more important. “I really didn’t know that I had any interest in art at all until I happened to take a summer school class at first year university,” he said. “I got really excited and it sort of grew from there,” he said. That led to studying art in California and Montana. He and his wife, Ronnie, returned to Saskatchewan to raise their family. Thauberger credits Saskatchewan folk artists like William McCargar for helping shape his style and reinforce something learned during his formal art education. “The thing they teach you in art school is to paint what you know. I took that more or less literally and felt that I should make some paintings of what I knew,” said Thauberger. He said the subject matter used by folk artists depicted similar or stereotypical prairie landscapes of railroad tracks running to a horizon line where grain elevators sit under a big sky. “For me, this was really reinforcing the idea of, could I make art that had real relevance to being here, to living here and that was about here,” Thauberger said. For two decades, he avoided painting grain elevators.

David Thauberger stands with his work at the Mendel Art Gallery in Saskatoon. The gallery is showcasing a major retrospective of Thauberger’s art until June 15. | WILLIAM DEKAY PHOTO “I think in large part that was because they’re so endemic in our consciousness and in our visual world,” he said. Over the years and through many prairie road trips, he became aware that his sense of place and direction disappeared as the elevator did. He captured images of wooden grain elevators and eventually these photographs became fodder for the straight-on approach of his paintings. “If you actually get out of the car, that’s the way that you confront

them. They’re right in your face,” he said. “These things have a monumental presence when you’re walking past them or encounter them.” Fraser said Thauberger’s paintings feel closer to modernism, which deals with a two-dimensional medium using pigment and shape with more direction towards abstraction. “He’s trying to give enough information that it’s really quite clear what you’re looking at and you supply the rest of the information based on your own experience,” she said.

Thauberger said he’s not trying to make paintings that fool the eye. “Hopefully when it’s working in the right way, it brings your imagination to the making and construction of it but also into your own personal experience about this place or places like this,” he said. Art is most successful when it is enjoyed. “The point of all art I think when it raises questions is the raising the question,” he said. “Art doesn’t provide the answer.”

Looking sharp for GROUSE FACTS • The sharp-tailed grouse (Tympanuchus phasianellus) is native to the Prairies and Parkland areas. • It can be identified by its short pointed tail, with two central tail feathers that extend farther than the others. Its speckled tan, brown, beige, black and white plumage helps it blend into its grass surroundings.

The sharp-tailed grouse, the provincial bird of Saskatchewan, performs a dance at a gathering place, called a lek, in the Arm River Valley near Aylesbury, Sask. The males dance and compete to impress the females. Early mornings present a good time to observe the birds’ mating habits during this time of year. | Mickey Watkins Photos

• Males and females display bright yellow-orange arches over each eye. Males have purple sacs on each side of the neck. During courtship, they inflate the sacs and flare the yellow-orange combs over their eyes. They hide the colours behind regular coloured plumage when danger threatens. • The sharp-tailed grouse performs its ritual courtship on dancing grounds called leks, where males come to compete for breeding opportunities. • Leks commonly have 10 to 20 males, but some counts have recorded up to 45 males. • The courtship dance includes fluttering wings, rapid foot stomping and spinning in tight circles. The most dominant males also court with low cooing sounds and by strutting around the females with inflated air sacs on their neck and fanned tail feathers. Source: Alberta Conservation Association

GLAZED GROUSE RECIPE 2 whole sharp-tailed grouse, plucked Salt 2 sprigs each of sage and rosemary 5 tbsp. butter Rosehip glaze: 4 tbsp. rose hip syrup or jelly 3 tbsp. water 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper Salt to taste Salt the grouse well and set out at room temperature for 30 minutes or so. Preheat the oven to 425 F. Put the herbs inside the birds’ cavities and slice the butter into thin pats. Gently place some under the skin on the breast; you should be able to easily get two to three pats under the skin of each bird. Put a little butter on the bottom of a cast-iron or other oven-proof frying pan. Set the grouse breast down in the pan. Add carrots, potatoes, celery or other vegetables on hand. Butter the backs of each grouse. Cover and roast in the oven for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small pan, melt jelly or syrup with the other ingredients and just bring it to a simmer. Mix it well and make sure it is thick. The added water helps the other flavours meld, and helps the jelly melt. If you are using syrup, you can use less water. Take the grouse out of the oven and turn right side up. Turn the oven down to 350 F. Put the remaining butter all over the birds and set back in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove the birds again and paint with the sauce. Cook again for another 10 to 15 minutes, then add more glaze. All told, the grouse should be cooked after 30 to 40 minutes at 350 F. Use a thermometer to tell. The breasts should be no cooler than 140 F, and the thighs no cooler than 150 F. Pink is perfectly fine with sharp-tailed grouse. If you want, caramelize the glaze under the broiler. Watch it, because it can burn in an instant. Let the grouse rest for 10 minutes before serving. Serves two hearty eaters. Source: Hank Shaw,

China stockpiles to support prices BEIJING (Reuters) — China will start a second round of pork stockpiling for state reserves as part of efforts to shore up falling domestic prices, the country’s state planning body reported. The National Development and Reform Commission did not say how much would be purchased after a first round of buying in March failed to support prices, which have fallen for 19 weeks in a row. WAR

Crisis takes toll on Ukraine corn projection KIEV (Reuters) — Crisis-hit Ukraine’s corn crop is expected to slump almost 20 percent this year, a Reuters poll has showed, as farmers from the major global exporter feel the impact of reduced financing. As Ukraine teeters on the brink of partition, the crisis has toughened lending conditions and some farmers have been forced to use cheaper seed or cut the amount of fertilizer they purchase. Others have struggled to secure loans to replace old equipment. A survey of 11 traders and analysts produced a median forecast of 25.0 million tonnes for this year’s corn crop, down 19.1 percent from last year’s record 30.9 million. The crop would still, however, be the second largest on record and more than double the 11.9 million produced just four years ago. The survey gave a median estimate for harvested area of 11.6 million acres, down less than three percent from the prior season’s 11.9


Syria struggles to buy food

Kansas fears drought

LONDON, U.K. (Reuters) — Wartorn Syria is struggling to buy food in the quantities it needs, despite repeatedly issuing tenders for hundreds of thousands of tonnes of sugar, rice and wheat, trade sources say. The sources, who have knowledge of the country’s commercial food deals, said the country’s threeyear civil war, which has claimed more than 150,000 lives and forced millions from their homes, is taking its toll, with large suppliers increasingly unwilling or unable to provide cargo for the Syrian market. Smaller suppliers have stepping in, but are unable to meet the full demand. On top of the risks of trading with a country wracked by violence, suppliers to Syria require licences from U.S. and European Union authorities, even for unrestricted humanitarian goods, which creates extra red tape and delays.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Reuters) — Wheat prospects in Kansas, the top U.S. producer of the grain, are the poorest in 13 years after months of drought and a bitterly cold winter, said scouts on an tour of the state. Scouts on the Wheat Quality Council’s tour of Kansas projected the state’s 2014 wheat yield at 33.2 bushels per acre, the tour’s lowest projected yield since 2001, following surveys of 587 fields last week. Scouts also estimated total wheat production in the state at 260.7 million bushels. The five-year tour averages are 41.8 bushels per acre and 328.1 million bushels, of total wheat production. “It is two to three weeks late, extremely short, and I am predicting they will have smaller heads than usual, which will reduce yields,” said Ben Handcock, executive vice-president of the Wheat Quality Council. “I don’t think freeze damage is a

real serious issue in Kansas. The issue is drought.” Rain may yet salvage many fields, but some predict it is too late. MARKETS

Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan fined CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — The Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board, which manages investments for Canada’s largest singleprofession pension plan, violated speculative position limits in CME Group Inc.’s lean hog futures market, the exchange-operator said. Chicago-based CME fined the board $15,000 and ordered it give up nearly $18,000 in profits for exceeding position limits on two dates in March 2013, according to a disciplinary notice. The pension plan had assets worth almost $141 billion as of Dec. 31. A board representative could not immediately be reached for comment.

CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — Farm loans at U.S. commercial banks jumped to a record high in the first quarter of 2014 as farmers tapped low interest rates to cope with lower grain revenue and rising production expenses, including livestock costs, said the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Bank data showed total non-real estate loans reached $105.9 billion US during the quarter. Operating loans spiked by nearly a third to $59.2 billion as farmers borrowed more to cover the cost of planting 2014 crops and purchasing pricier feeder cattle and hogs, the bank said. “Lower crop prices reduced cash flow for farmers selling the remainder of last year’s crop and overall crop input costs remained high despite a moderate decline in fertilizer prices,” the Kansas City Fed said in its U.S. agricultural finance data book, which is based on a February national survey of 250 commercial bankers.

Court sides with White House on biofuel WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — A U.S. appeals court has thrown out an oil industry challenge to the president Barack Obama administration’s 2013 biofuel mandate, ruling that the government has “wide latitude” to decide whether to modify renewable fuel use targets and by how much. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit rejected arguments from refiners that the Environmental Protection Agency had not thoroughly considered how renewable fuel credits are used to satisfy federal targets. The ruling could have broad implications for the biofuel mandate, as various groups weigh challenges to EPA’s management of the program. The EPA’s final 2014 quotas are due out in June. The Renewable Fuel Standard requires increasing amounts of biofuels such as ethanol to be blended into U.S. gasoline and diesel supplies through 2022. U.S. refiners need to accumulate credits, or Renewable Identification Numbers to prove they have blended their share of renewable fuels into gasoline and diesel. If they do not blend, they need to buy RINs.





USDA serious about keeping information under wraps Commodity market sensitive | Agricultural statistics are used by commodity traders and can affect markets, so timely release is essential BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

WASHINGTON, D.C. — It’s not easy for reporters and government staff to enter the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s lockup facilities. They must have their credentials checked, pass a security guard’s inspection, go through alarmed doors and hand over cellphones and digital devices. They also face a network of surveillance and data protection measures that they can’t even see. “We won’t tell you everything that we do. That’s part of security,” said Hubert Hamer, director of the statistics division for the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, as he led a group of agricultural journalists through the agency’s lockup facilities in the USDA building near the U.S. Capitol Building. However, he said sensors within the electronically blacked-out area can pick up any signal from a concealed cellphone and locate it through triangulation. As well, electronic countermeasures would pounce if someone attempted to open a wireless internet data connection within the facility during a lockup. Security would launch a denial-of-service attack and stop it working. The USDA is serious about protecting the secrecy of its agricultural data until the millisecond it is officially released. “No elevators. No phones. No outside connections to the world. Everything is self-contained,” said Hamer. The USDA’s agencies regularly release statistics that the world markets use for trading. This makes them both eagerly anticipated and the source of great value to anyone who gets access to them early. The newswire services focus relentlessly on reducing the shreds of a second it takes to turn around the crucial numbers once they are released. Reporters in the lockup fire out the numbers to their newsrooms and digital readers the second they are allowed to do so. This is sharp contrast to a few decades ago, when reporters had to stand behind a line on the floor and run for a bank of phones the second a report was released. Reporters are often allowed into the lockup in the hours before important crop production and stocks reports are released. They must hand over cellphones and other communications devices and sign confidentiality

agreements in exchange for receiving advanced access to the information. Once in, they can’t leave until the report is released. The same goes for USDA analysts, although they are generally there much longer. Hamer said top USDA analysts might be brought into the lockup at midnight before a crop production report to be released at noon, 12 hours later. They go in with all the data from all the sources that they will require and then have no further contact with the outside world, including any other part of the USDA. They are as cut off as the journalists. “When we go into lockup, we actually physically disconnect ourselves,” said Hamer, who has been with the USDA for 33 years. At the appointed release time, the USDA’s chief economist and agriculture secretary (or representative) are allowed into the lockup and briefed by the department’s top analysts, who made the final decisions on numbers. Then the report is released and the analysts and reporters are allowed to leave. “No one’s leaving till noon (for any planned 12 p.m. release),” Hamer said. “Until the clock hits noon and… the doors open, (then) you see whether it rained or snowed or whatever last night.” The lockup controls were tightened after report information was inadvertently released early by a glitch in a USDA server, but also to keep it current with advancing technology. Hamer said the sensor network has already caught unreported cellphones. Technology exists to make cellphones inoperative, but the USDA failed to receive approval to use it because it is generally just allowed for the U.S. military. Some have argued that worries about security and the constant efforts to ensure no one is sneaking out information early suggests that the USDA should end the practice of giving agricultural journalists access

However, Hamer said the department thinks it’s better to have some of the earliest

coverage of important reports come from journalists who have had time to think about the numbers before they

Saskatchewan land sale questioned Canada Pension Plan buys 115,000 acres | PC party wants provincial Farm Land Security Board to investigate deal BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Saskatchewan’s Progressive Conservative party has called for an investigation into the sale of 115,000 acres of farmland to the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board. Party leader Rick Swenson said the province’s Farm Land Security Board should investigate the sale o f t h e p rov i n c e’s l a r g e s t f a r m because it might not meet ownership laws. However, economy minister Bill Boyd said a legal opinion from the justice ministry found nothing wrong with the deal. CPI bought the land for $128 million from Assiniboia Farmland LP in December 2013. Assiniboia maintains a management agreement. At the time, the CPI board’s senior vice-president for private investments said farmland is an attractive

asset that traditionally delivers stable, risk-adjusted returns. However, Swenson said the PC party believes the CPI is a sovereign wealth fund and isn’t eligible to own the land because it has no shares owned by Canadian residents. He said if the CPI is allowed to own land, there will be nothing stopping Alberta’s AIMCO or the Quebec Pension Plan from buying and operating large Saskatchewan farms. “I would have expected at least an exemption until some of these other

issues are sorted out,” Swenson said, referring to the Farm Land Security Board’s ability to grant exemptions to the law. He said Farm Credit Canada has previously had to obtain an exemption to own land. The Saskatchewan Farm Security Act, which was amended in 2002 following public meetings, allows Canadian citizens to own farmland in the province. Also allowed are Canadian-owned entities, including agricultural corporations, corporations, partnerships, syndicates, joint ventures, cooperatives, associations and similar entities. Swenson said sovereign wealth funds and land speculators shouldn’t be allowed to acquire farms because it endangers the history of producer ownership. He said if the Saskatchewan government has a legal opinion that this sale meets its own laws, it should release that information.

The PC party is asking for an inquiry under Section 95 of the Public Inquiries Act. “We request the board appoint a recognizably independent investigator with the power of a commissioner under the Public Inquiries Act,” said a letter to the Farm Land Security Board. “We further request the board make public the results of the investigation and give a written report to the minister.” Swenson said allowing CPI to own land is akin to the former land bank in Saskatchewan, which the PCs fought against. “This is farm and ranch people competing for land and rent against their own pension money,” he said. “They (land bank) were the high dollar in the market. Their rents were the high dollar and they were the ones that were out there competing against Saskatchewan people with their own money.”

He said the land bank program had an appeals process, but it appears there is no way to appeal the CPIAssiniboia deal. “We should not have agricultural people competing against their own money,” he said. Boyd said the law allows Canadians to invest in farmland in Saskatchewan. “I think it’s a little bit hard to argue that the Canada Pension Plan … is somehow not Canadian,” he said. “Obviously everybody that has a salary anywhere in Canada contributes to the Canada Pension Plan.” Boyd said the CPI hasn’t invested much in Saskatchewan so this is a good move. He also said he doesn’t believe sales like this are driving up land costs. Rather, he said, farmers bidding against each other are doing that. As well, he said the deal represents less than one percent of the available farmland in Saskatchewan.

Soybeans can be found in a wide variety of food, but they are also used to make candles. One of the companies that does is Soy Harvest of Winnipeg, which started in a kitchen nine years ago and has since expanded to supply stores in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and northwestern Ontario. Soy candles are made from soybean oil that has gone through a special hydrogenation patented process that turns liquid oil into a solid (wax), which stays solid until heated. Unlike paraffin candles, soy wax needs less heat to melt back into its liquid form. “If you were to take one of our votive candles, which primarily needs to be put inside a glass jar, a paraffin one will stand straight and burn until it melts away,” said Bruce Reynoldson, the company’s sales and marketing director. “Ours would turn into a puddle, because it liquefies at a low temperature. That’s why the burn time is long and, because it liquefies right away, it doesn’t burn off the fragrance.” Burning at a much lower temperature allows candles to burn twice as long as paraffin. Reynoldson joined Soy Harvest’s founder, Sheila Sorochan, about three years ago, after her father died. Since then, the company has expanded from making 20 candles a day to 6,000 a week. The current demand for the product is closer to 25,000 per week, Reynoldson said. As a result, Soy Harvest is looking for a new manufacturing facility in Winnipeg. The company supplies nearly 300

The company is not yet able to source the soy wax in Canada, although it is working to get a manufac-

turer in Canada. It currently buys soy wax in pellet form from local importers, which bring it in from the U.S. This way, the product is easy to handle before the fragrance is added. The wax is pored over the wick and left to cool and solidify. Soy Harvest is hoping to get into a new building next year.

he TerraLUX LightStar 100 is a compact, general-purpose flashlight. The LED emitter can be set to three modes with the tail click button: • 100 lumens with a run time of two hours • 50 lumens with an 8.5 hour run time • strobe The flashlight is four inches long, 7/8 inch in diameter, weighs less than three ounces and uses a single AA battery. The housing is made from aluminum and its design is water resistant. It comes with a clip, nylon holster and wrist straps , which enable a variety of carrying options. The light beam produced by the flashlight has a bright hot spot at the centre with a small outer spill area. Its illumination is sufficient for most indoor purposes when working in tight areas, as well as outdoors for short distances. Although overlooked by most people, a good flashlight is an almost indispensable tool because or primary environmental sense is sight. When many people think about a flashlight, they either think about a bulky unit or something so tiny its illumination is nearly useless. They dismiss carrying such tools on a daily basis. However, the TerraLUX LightStar 100 is small enough for easy carrying and can provide enough light for momentary needs. These models fit comfortably inside the front pocket of most pants or bags without bulk and weight. They are the sweet spot of power and size for easy carrying. Once you start carrying a flashlight like this one, it will be difficult not to wonder how you got along without one. You will constantly find yourself in situations that are made better by having one on hand. I carried a TerraLUX LightStar 100 clipped inside my left hip pocket for nearly a year. I benefited from its presence almost daily and never regretted carrying it. My flashlight runs on one AA battery but some models use the more powerful CR123 batteries. I prefer flashlights that use the more comm o n l y av a i l a b l e A A b a t t e r i e s because they are inexpensive and easy to find. My testing of the TerraLUX LightStar 100 encountered no problems for many months. I never used the strobe function but figured it might have been helpful in alerting others of my location. It would make an excellent choice for a personal flashlight. It is inexpensive and well worth the investment.

Food security starts with improving small scale farms Maximize production, profits | Official says smart agriculture uses less land to produce high value crops BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

WASHINGTON, D.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Making the world more food secure requires farmers to make more money, and probably requires fewer of them, says the U.S. Agency for International Developmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior science adviser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really trying to do is get people in the farming business who really want to be in the farming business (and) to be more commercially successful, so they can do more things,â&#x20AC;? Fred Davies told agricultural

journalists April 7. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get people to be more commercial in what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing.â&#x20AC;? He said smallholder farmers will have better lives if they can make money in farming and do better than just live hand-to-mouth. USAID is part of the U.S. governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s international development system, which evolved in the 1960s. It has always focused on helping small scale farmers improve their production methods and sustainability. Davies said making small farmers more commercial is key to both making them better farmers and making


their countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more food secure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would say that the best growers in the world are in the sustainability business,â&#x20AC;? said Davies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to use more chemical than they have to because chemicals cost money, there are resistance problems, they want a robust system.â&#x20AC;? He said up to 80 percent of the population lives on farms in countries such as Bangladesh and Senegal. That isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a choice for most of them but just a product of the fact that they have no other options. Davies said more productive agriculture would provide value-added, off-farm opportunities for many and allow committed farmers to make enough money to have lives better than mere subsistence. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just include food-based agriculture, he added.






For example, Kenya has a vibrant cut flowers industry, which helps its economy and provides work for many. Davies said micro-finance, with small loans of $90, can radically improve a small farm. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one direction in which aid agencies have moved. Davies is a passionate supporter of genetically modification as one of the improvements that are required to sustainably support the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

However, he said many technologies and methods are needed to maximize crop production because farmland is being lost at a great rate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to need that and get by with using less land to go ahead and produce more and also have higher value-added (features within the crops),â&#x20AC;? said Davies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all a part of smart agriculture.â&#x20AC;Ś Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a proponent of smart agriculture.â&#x20AC;? Davies said a key to improving farm sustainability in the developing world is to make sure that the farmers want to farm and people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to farm can do something else. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What can we do with those folks to make sure that some of them have the ability to become more commercial (and) get others off the farm and making money some other way?â&#x20AC;?

A multimillion-dollar initiative aims to improve market access for African farmers. T h e f e d e ra l g ov e r n m e nt a n nounced a $10 million commitment to the effort in early May, ahead of a series of meetings this month that included last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Economic Forum on Africa. The funds, to be provided over a five-year period, will support an International Finance Corp. (IFC) project on a continent where tens of millions of farms operate for subsistence and local markets rather than for the global supply chain. The project, called Enhancing Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Access to Markets in East and West Africa, aims to include these small farmers, a majority of whom are women, as private sector suppliers by improving produce quality and their ability to meet trade standards. The IFC is a financial institution that works with private industry in developing countries. The initiative will target coffee, cocoa, palm oil and cashew production.

There are 33 million smallholder farms in Africa by one estimate, most of whom are only a few acres in size. They account for up to 90 percent of food production in some African countries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By gaining better access to more markets and improving their agricultural practices, farmers have better chances to become more competitive and productive, and to see their incomes increase,â&#x20AC;? international development minister Christian Paradis said in a statement. In one report about private sector investment in African agriculture, the organization Grow Africa identified access to reliable market data as one obstacle preventing small farmers from commercializing production. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Within loosely structured value chains, the risks and unit costs are often too high for smallholders to viably access markets, inputs and services,â&#x20AC;? the report said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This in turn impacts the viability of companies undertaking value-adding activists such as processing.â&#x20AC;? Sub-Saharan Africa is set for economic growth of 5.5 percent in 2014,

according to the International Monetary Fund. Speaking at the launch of the Africa Progress Report last week, United Nations secretary-general Kofi Annan said African governments should work harder to reduce inequality that has prevented the benefits of a decade of economic growth from being spread equitably. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After more than a decade of growth, there is plenty to celebrate,â&#x20AC;? Annan said at the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it is time to ask why so much growth has done so little to lift people out of poverty and why so much o f A f r i c aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s re s o u rc e w e a l t h i s squandered through corrupt practices and unscrupulous investment activities.â&#x20AC;? The report, which was written by the Africa Progress Panel chaired by Annan, advocates sustainable development. Annan, who is from Ghana, played a central role in shaping the UNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Millennium Development Goals, which aimed to halve extreme poverty by 2015. He said the next set of targets must have reducing inequality as a core objective.




Loblawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s project traces beef back to plant





Canadian AAA beef in 77 Real Canadian Superstores in Western Canada is now traced back to the exact animal from which it came. Loblaw is using DNA technology from IdentiGEN, which specializes in trace backs for agriculture and food companies. IdentiGEN also provided traceability for the Certified Ontario Cornfed Beef program in Ontario Loblaw stores, implemented in May 2013. IdentiGEN said the meat will have a label indicating that its origins

have been tracked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The program really isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t designed for a consumer to trace the product,â&#x20AC;? said Amanda Pokorny of IdentiGEN. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a complex scientific system, samples are done thousands at a time. Loblawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s has already taken the work out of that for the consumer and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already done that traceability process themselves.â&#x20AC;? Loblaw senior vice-president Sal Baio said in a news release that the company sees traceability as important for consumers who want more information on how their meat is produced. He said DNA information enables the company to identify the

origin for any Canada AAA beef cut. Loblaw did not respond to requests for information on protocols or planned quality improvements. Pokorny said DNA tracing begins when an animal enters the plant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Essentially, an animal goes into the abattoir and the product is swabbed for DNA and then the IdentiGEN lab puts the DNA information in a database,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then the animal goes through the supply chain and at another point in the supply chain the product is again DNA tested and then that DNA sample is matched back to the animal of origin.â&#x20AC;?

Step into the productivity of a new Guardian™ front boom sprayer from New Holland and you won’t turn back. With the boom in front, you have a complete unobstructed view of every nozzle. This outstanding visibility means you can run the boom closer to the ground to control drift. Spray is delivered into the crop before the first tires go over it, eliminating the potential for dust to neutralize the spray. Start achieving a new level of spraying freedom and productivity.

Developing pig lungs for human transplants Key to compatibility | Experts look at altering pig genome to prevent organ rejection and blood clots CHICAGO (Reuters) — Genome pioneer J. Craig Venter is teaming up with a unit of United Therapeutics Corp. to develop pig lungs that have been genetically modified to be compatible with humans. The feat, if successful, could address the urgent need for transplant organs for people with endstage lung disease. Venter’s privately held company, Synthetic Genomics Inc., said it has entered a multiyear deal with United Therapeutics’ Lung Biotechnology Inc. to develop the humanized pig organs. The venture is intended to advance United Therapeutics’ efforts to develop replacement organs grown in GM pigs. According to the companies, 400,000 people in the United States die each year from lung disease, and only 2,000 people are saved with a lung transplant. Previous efforts to use animal organs in people in need of a transplant, known as xenotransplantation, have failed because of differences in the genome that caused organ rejection and blood clots. “Our new collaboration with Synthetic Genomics is huge for accelerating our efforts to cure end-stage lung disease,” said Martine Rothblatt, chief executive officer of United Therapeutics. Humans, pigs and most other mammals share 90 percent of the same genes. What Venter’s team will do is to determine which aspects of the pig genome need to be altered to make porcine lungs compatible with humans. This will avoid the rejection response that occurs even in humanto-human transplants. “The goal is to go in and edit, and where necessary, rewrite using our synthetic genomic tools, the pig genes that seem to be associated with immune responses,” said Venter, who is best known for his role in mapping the human genome more than a decade ago and who created synthetic life in 2010. “We want to get it so there is no acute or chronic rejection.” Venter’s team is tasked with editing and rewriting the pig genome and providing the United Therapeutics

United Therapeutics will transplant those cells into pig eggs, generating embryos that develop and are born with humanized lungs. If all goes well, Venter thinks his team will be able to deliver the cells in a few years. Testing the humanized organs in clinical trials to ensure they are safe in people will take many more years. Lungs are the hardest organ to transplant because they are so delicate in structure, Venter said. Hearts


and kidneys from these animals may also prove to be suitable for human transplantation If the team succeeds in developing humanized pig lungs. As part of the agreement, Lung Biotechnology will take a $50 million stake in Synthetic Genomics, which also will receive royalties and milestone incentives from the development and commercialization of the organs. Venter said the venture would have sounded like science fiction

just five years ago. However, several research teams are working on the use of GM pig body parts to help improve the supply of transplant organs. Researchers at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute recently reported at the American Association for Thoracic Surgery meeting in Toronto that they grafted a GM pig heart into the abdomen of a baboon and kept it functioning, aided by the baboon’s natural heart, for more than a year.

Mosaic to cut 500 jobs as profit tumbles (Reuters) —Mosaic says it will eliminate more than 500 jobs in the next year after reporting a largerthan-expected 43 percent drop in quarterly profit. The fertilizer sector has been under pressure since last summer’s breakup of one of the world’s biggest potash traders, Belarusian Potash Co., led to a steep drop in prices. Transportation problems in North America also dogged the industry during the frigid winter. Chief executive officer Jim Prokopanko said the company will shed 550 to 560 jobs, using layoffs, attrition, early retirement and eliminating contractors. It said in October that it aimed to cut $500 million in costs during the next five years, bolstering its status as a low-cost phosphate producer and reducing its relatively high cost of producing potash. “We feel we can reduce the spending because we have a sounder enterprise overall,” Prokopanko said. “We’ve allowed ourselves to grow when times were good. Now we think we can be just as productive with fewer people.” Prokopanko said more than half of the jobs to be eliminated are not directly involved in production, but he would not say how the cuts break down between the phosphate and potash segments. The company will shed another 200 jobs from previously announced asset sales in South America and the United States. Mosaic’s job cuts follow Potash Corp’s move in December to slash its workforce by 18 percent, or more than 1,000 jobs. Prokopanko said the potash market looked oversupplied for the next three years as demand grows only modestly just as producers have expanded capacity. “It could be, just (based on) purely supply and demand, some tough sledding,” he said. Prokopanko said the company will not halt expansion of its mine in Esterhazy, Sask., but would not comment directly when asked if Mosaic may close or sell other potash mines.


Rising carbon dioxide levels may reduce beneficial minerals in crops WASHINGTON (Reuters) — Rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere may cut the nutritional quality of some of the world’s most important food crops. Researchers reported the findings after conducting experiments simulating conditions expected by midcentury. The amounts of two important nutrients, zinc and iron, were found to be lower in wheat, rice, soybeans and field peas grown in open air fields, where the scientists created CO2 concentrations at the level they forecast for Earth by roughly 2050, about 550 parts per million. They grew 40 varieties of six grains and legumes, also including corn

and sorghum, at seven locations in Japan, Australia and the United States. “This is important because almost two billion people globally receive most of these two nutrients (zinc and iron) by eating crops,” said University of Illinois plant biology professor Andrew Leakey, one of the researchers. The researchers said these findings point to one of the most important health threats shown to be linked to climate change. Dr. Samuel Myers of the Harvard School of Public Health, who led the study published in the journal Nature, said there already is a significant public health problem in parts

of the world because of inadequate intake of zinc and iron. Myers said inadequate zinc intake affects the immune system and makes people more vulnerable to premature death from malaria, pneumonia and diarrhea. Myers said

iron deficiency is linked to increases in maternal mortality, anemia, reductions in IQ and reduced work productivity. Scientists have sought to gauge the impact of climate change on humankind in the coming decades, including the effects of CO2 levels that have been rising because of the burning of fossil fuels since the advent of the Industrial Revolution. Earth’s atmospheric CO2 concentration is 400 parts per million and continues to rise. The study found that wheat grown under elevated CO2 conditions had nine percent lower zinc levels and five percent lower iron levels than did wheat grown under normal conditions.

Rice grown with elevated CO2 levels had three percent less zinc content and five percent less iron. Wheat and rice also had lower protein content at the elevated carbon dioxide levels, the researchers said. Nutrients in sorghum and corn remained stable at the higher carbon dioxide levels because these crops use a kind of photosynthesis that concentrates CO2 in their leaves, the researchers said. The scientists simulated higher CO2 levels in open air fields using a system known as free air concentration enrichment, which pumps out, monitors and adjusts ground level CO2 in the air to simulate future conditions.




RESIDUAL CONTROL Adding residual control to the spring burn off makes sense for a lot of crops. Where it fits into the rotation, some lingering herbicides can result in higher yields and lower weed control costs later in the season. | Page 66

Lip service saves crop, wear and tear Feed lip modification | Extension on concave puts crop into processor BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

Crop material that should be feeding directly into the front concaves of a Case IH Flagship, 7230, 8230 or 9320 might be jumping the grates without the operator suspecting a thing. A new modification is designed to put that crop material onto the front grates where it belongs. Improvements in farm machinery often happen by accident. So it is with the Integrated Feed Lip developed by Sunnybrook Welding owner Gerald Foster, along with one of his customers, Alberta farmer Ray Hittinger. Prototypes tested in 30 Series combines in 2013 field trials by Krumbach Harvesting of South Dakota reduced engine draw by seven percent compared to similar 8230 combines in the fleet. All Krumbach’s combines ran the same Sunnybrook MaxThresh concaves. The Integrated Feed Lip is a relatively minor modification that Foster and Hittinger thought up to compensate for changes Case IH made to its rotary combines a few years ago. “The feed lip had previously been part of the front concave up at the front of the H-frame,” Foster said. “That meant those concaves could not be used anywhere else in the system. Those concaves were unique to that front position.” Removing the lip from the concave and installing it on the H-frame allowed Case IH to reduce its parts inventory. The concaves can now be used anywhere in the system. However, that created a problem. The lip was now a fixed part of the H-frame as the concaves were adjusted up and down to set the clearances.

It’s not as much of a problem when the concaves are lowered to open up the clearances. Foster said he had never seen this particular manufacturing deviation turn into such a major problem until t w o y e a r s a g o w h e n Hi t t i n g e r brought in an H-frame that needed work. It was from an 8120 with high hours and held four concaves. “It was the first time I’d seen this. We thought the H-frame had maybe been bent or damaged somehow because the concaves didn’t sit flush,” said Foster. “But then we noticed that crop material had been grinding along the lip and wearing a groove into the front lip of the H-frame. It looked like it was cavitating around the side of the H-frame. “His concaves had cracks at the front and showed severe wear at the front. That told us crop material was not easily carried into the front of the processor. The leading edges of the front concaves were like a dam stopping crop material from being

brought into the thresher.” Foster concluded that the dam created by the front surface of the concave could launch the crop material over those concaves. He said the crop material could sail right over the top of the rotor and become wrapped up for one complete revolution before being fed into the concaves. “That’s a bad thing. The material travels one extra revolution for nothing. It wastes a lot of energy and it’s obviously hard on the machine. “I have another customer, Danny Crow, who runs four 30 Series combines and a service trailer to keep them running. One day I happened to notice a bunch of cracked concaves in his trailer. He said it happens all the time. The front concaves on these combines take a beating because of that lip that’s part of the H-frame.” Foster said the solution wasn’t difficult once he and Hittinger figured out the problem. “Centrifugal force is always being applied to the crop material, pushing it up the lip and into the processor. It’s supposed to be swept right

Tapering lip addition makes it easier to set combine WINNIPEG BUREAU

Ray Hittinger had less than 1,200 hours on his Case IH 8120 combine two years ago when he noticed premature wear on the H-frame. “We had really high wear on the frame. It definitely wore out before its time,” said Hittinger, who farms north of Edmonton. Hittinger was the second owner of the combine, and he knew its history. It was a local combine, coming from an area with deep black soil and no sand to prompt premature wear of combine parts. “It was wearing in an odd place,” he said. “I’d never seen anything like that before.” He took the concave to Sunnybrook Welding. “We could set the concave into the

frame. Instead of having a nice ramp for the grain to climb in on, it runs straight into the wall of the concave. That makes it difficult for crop to get up on to the concave. There’s no smooth transition. “I could feel the difference in performance (once Sunnybrook modified it). I think it took a little less horsepower. But that’s not the big thing. The big thing is that it’s easier to set the combine.” Danny Crow also equipped a combine with the Sunnybrook Integrated Feed Lip in 2013. He plans to do two more combines before harvest this year. “I can’t say anything definite about the power or performance. Last year was pretty dry at harvest so we never had to use our power to the full extent,” he said. “But I can see that in tough conditions, it’s going to help.”


Balance fertilizer rate, grain prices for optimal returns

GM-free canola demand rising Few GM-free fields | ‘It’s a market trend that can be tough to fill,’ says seed grower BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

An Alberta seed grower says the growing market for non-genetically modified canola and the later seeding season are increasing demand for two of his normally less popular varieties. Bob Mastin of Sundre, Alta., has been working with oilseed crushers in Washington state and Manitoba that want his short season, non-GM canola as well as the non-GM Clearfield variety he also markets. “There is a demand, rightly or wrongly, for non-GM canola,” said Mastin. Crushers sometimes pay a premium for GM-free canola, but most importantly this year, they will also arrange shipping to obtain the product. “It’s a market trend and one that can be tough to fill with the right product,” said Mastin. Finding land to grow GM-free canola is proving a challenge, he added. Mastin said the short season, nonGM Polish canola is more popular in later seeding seasons, while the Clearfield variety that was developed by BASF using mutation breeding technology is herbicide tolerant but non-GM.

Clearfield canola was developed using mutation breeding technology and is in demand by crushers. | FILE PHOTO Some of Mastin’s seed is being shipped to Alaska for production trials this season in an effort to find fields that are free of volunteer GM canola. The International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-Biotech Applications says 97.5 percent of the canola grown in Canada is GM. “In some cases, farmers are producing it on broken pasture or alfalfa. After those big wind storms at harvest two years ago, even fields that have never grown canola as a crop are growing it now as a weed,”

Mastin said. “But I am getting calls looking to hook up some folks with crushers and GM free canola as crop diversification. Who would have thought, canola as a crop diversification tool?” Legumex Walker’s Pacific Coast Canola plant is one of North America’s largest non-GM crushers, located in Warden, Wash. As well, Viterra produces non-GM canola oil at its plant at Ste. Agathe, Man. For a related Western Producer story, visit To speak with Mastin, call 306-556-2609.


Producers considering reduced nitrogen rates this spring because of lower commodity prices should not reduce rates by the same percentage that they expect prices to fall. The Manitoba Nitrogen Rate of Return Calculator makes this crystal clear. Using multiples of 10 to simplify the example, let’s start with wheat at $10 per bushel grown with 100 pounds of nitrogen per acre. If the price drops by 50 percent to $5 per bu., it would not be smart to drop nitrogen rates by 50 lb. Rather, the calculator would recommend an 80 lb rate. “The N calculator is not gospel. It is very important information, but I consider it to be just a guide,” said John Heard, fertility specialist for Manitoba Agriculture. “This year, the calculator is telling us we shouldn’t over-react to high nitrogen prices or falling grain prices. You don’t cut your nitrogen rate in proportion to the drop in grain prices.” Tom Jensen of the International Plant Nutrition Institute used the calculator to show the optimum N rates and net returns for these two periods in time. “In January 2013, the spring wheat price was $7.80 per bu. with granular urea cost at $570 per tonne, and the potential net return was $106 per acre. The calculated optimum N rate was 100 lb. per acre,” said Jensen. “As of January 2014, the spring wheat price has decreased to $5.62 per bu., a 28 percent decrease, but the optimum nitrogen rate only lowered to 90 lb. per acre, a 10 percent decrease. Admittedly, net returns decreased to $66 per acre. Even though farmer projected net returns

decreased 38 percent with the drop in grain prices, it still pays to not lower fertilizer nitrogen rates in direct proportion to decreases in grain prices.” Jensen said the relationship between cost of fertilizer and grain price is not a linear one. “You need fertilizer to build yield, but there are economic limits and farmers need to be aware of them,” he said. Heard said the calculator is soil specific to Manitoba and eastern Saskatchewan, but it is also used by producers in western Saskatchewan. “It’s based on soils that are pretty water charged, so it’s also relevant in western Saskatchewan in a year when they have lots of water,” he said. “In fact, I’m getting more phone calls from Saskatchewan than from Manitoba this year.” For more information, visit www. or phone John Heard at 204-745-8093 or Tom Jensen at 306652-3467.

Residual weed control improves yield but heed warnings PRECISELY AGRONOMY


Cropping options limited with residual control


t is possible to add residual weed control to the spring burn off. It can be a blessing, as well as a curse. First the curse. Many of these products will restrict the crops that can be seeded into those fields this year and next. It may be an issue if weather dictates a change in planting intensions, and there may be issues for the next planting season if extremely dry conditions occur. These products have caution statements on their labels that reinforce these precautions. And now the blessing. Used properly, these tools can effectively control weeds before they cause yield damage by robbing crops of moisture and nutrients. In a research study conducted by Neil Harker of Agriculture Canada at Lacombe, Alta., early weed removal provided greater yield increases than waiting for later emerging weeds before applying herbicides. Lacombe’s John O’Donovan showed in his work that weeds emerging before a crop caused significantly more yield damage than weeds emerging after the crop had emerged. These studies show the importance of removing weeds early and before the crop has emerged. Using herbicides with residual control will achieve both of these goals. They also allow for a wider window for in-season herbicide application and spray scheduling. These products can be broken into two groups:

Residual weed control for the weeks immediately after seeding might pay yield dividends. | of control, depending on application techniques, weather conditions and wild oat populations. It uses a Group 8 herbicide mode of action. Trifluralin and Edge also control wild oats as well as other annual grassy and broadleaf weeds. These products are limited to some broadleaf crops. They work best when incorporated into the soil but work surprisingly well in no-till situations where the seed bank has built up on the surface. Both of these products are Group 3 modes of action. Flucarbazone is a grassy weed product that can be applied preemergent. It is sold in combination with tribenuron-methyl, the active ingredient in Express and is marketed under the name of Inferno DUO. It will offer up to two weeks of residual control on wild oats as well as a number of broadleaf weeds and season-long control of green foxtail. Both flucarbazone and tribenuronmethyl are Group 2 chemicals modes. Broadleaf weed control

Grassy weed control Some of these products could be called “old school” because they have been around since the 1970s. Avadex provides pre-emergent control of wild oats in a variety of crops. It will provide four to six weeks

Four products offer residual or soil active control. One of them is tribenuron-methyl, which is marketed as Express SG, Inferno WDG, MPower X, Nuance, FirstStep Complete and Spike. They are marketed as co-packs with

glyphosate and Inferno DUO. All of them except Express SG are WDG formulation, which tends to be harder to clean out of sprayer tanks. As a result, additional care should be taken to ensure the product is thoroughly cleaned out of the tank. This should include rinsing with an ammonia based product. Tribenuron-methyl based products will provide up to seven days residual control. A sister product to tribenuronmethyl is Express PRO, which also contains metsulfuron-methyl. The addition of the second product will extend residual control for another week or so. Florasulam, marketed in combination with glyphosate as PrePass or Priority, provides up to 21 days control. The length of residual control is determined by the temperature. The cooler the conditions, the longer the residual control. All of these actives are Group 2 herbicides and are used prior to cereals. Authority is one of the residual herbicide products on the market. Sulfentrazone, the active ingredient in Authority, is registered on chickpeas, field peas, flax and sunflowers. Its weed spectrum is limited to kochia, redroot pigweed, wild buckwheat and lamb’s quarters, but it can be effective when these weeds are present.


Saflufenacil, which is sold under the name Heat, is another new product. The residual control is probably around a week, but it does appear to control volunteer canola, cleavers, wild buckwheat, wild mustard and stinkweed when used at the 28 grams per acre rate. Sulfentrazone and saflufenacil are Group 14 modes of action. Imazethapyr provides residual control of broadleaf and some grassy weeds but is not registered for this use in Western Canada. It is sold as Pursuit, Kamikaze, Phantom, Gladiator and MultiStar and has been used for some time before lentils and peas. The introduction of Clearfield lentils have prompted far mers to become brave and increase the rate of use. Imazethapyr is not registered for use in the brown soil zone, but that is where it is mostly used. This product should be used with caution in drier areas and where soil pH is below 6.5 because carryover can be extended into the following year. It is a member of the Group 2 chemistry. All the products discussed perform best when a light rain follows applications. As well, these products are registered for use when tank mixed with glyphosate, with the exception of

Avadex, Edge and trifluralin. However, farmers are learning to use products with residual to gain the maximum benefits. For example, I have seen growers apply PrePass A (florasulam) alone at 40 millilitres per acre and leave out the PrePass B (glyphosate) when no perennial or grassy weeds were present. This product provides excellent flushing activity on weeds such as cleavers, volunteer canola, flixweed, shepherd’s-purse, narrow-leaved hawk’s beard, stinkweed and wild buckwheat. Likewise, farmers have applied Express Pro at seven grams per acre with a surfactant to give residual control of volunteer canola, seedling dandelions, flixweed, narrow-leafed hawk’s beard and wild buckwheat. In both cases, I have seen this done following Roundup Ready canola with excellent results. Steps should be taken to avoid future problems: • Observe re-cropping intervals laid out in the label. • Be aware that residual products put additional selection pressure to select resistant biotypes of weeds. • Rotate to another mode of action for in-crop herbicide applications.

Canada fleabane is not considered a major weed in Western Canada. But in Ontario, it has developed into a herbicide tolerant pest. Fleabane is a winter or summer annual, with most of the seedlings making their appearance in a postharvest environment from August to October. The pest forms a dark green rosette of hairy leaves and settles in for the winter. Fleabane, formally known as conyza canadensis, gets going again from the end of April to the end of May when the weather warms up. The plant generates its flower stalks and develops the characteristic long, narrow, pointed leaves. Blooming begins in July, when the small white flowers emerge. Canada fleabane will continue to bloom well into September. Smaller adults, less than half a metre in height, will produce 2,000 seeds. Larger plants of up to 1.5 metres will generate as many as 250,000 seeds. Ontario’s agriculture ministry says the weed establishes best when

seeds aren’t disturbed and remain on the surface. Coverage by crop trash or burial with fall tillage suppress germination and seed survival. Nearly all seeds suffer mortal deterioration by the three-year mark. Fall annual versions produce the most seeds, while the spring germinated plants are far less prolific. Minimal research on the economic impact has been conducted in Canada, especially in the West. Michigan researchers found that populations of 150 plants per sq. metre reduced soybean yields by up to 85 percent. The plant acts as a host for insects such as the tarnished plant bug and the alfalfa bug. It also suffers from aster yellows, becoming a reservoir for that disease when the aster leaf hopper is present. Even light tillage controls the weed, so the move to reduced tillage systems has allowed it to expand its range. Control in the fall w ith glyphosate or glufosinate ammonium (Liberty, Good Harvest) will catch most of the rosettes. Spring burn-off applications are also effective. In-crop herbicides such as dicam-

ba, clopyralid and bromoxynil with MCPA will often provide control of both new seedlings and mature plants. Metribuzin (Sencor) is also effective. Thifensulfuron-methyl or tribenuron-methyl with MCPA (Refine with MCPA), fluroxypyr with MCPA (Trophy), pyrasulfotole and bromoxynil (Infinity) and clopyralid (Lontrel) are effective in winter wheat, although not expressly listed for the pest in the prairie crop production guides. That research was done by the Ontario agriculture ministry and the University of Guelph. Adding products that provide a second mode of action to glyphosate burn-offs are also effective for controlling the pest. These include florasulam (Pre-Pass, Priority) and saflufenacil (Heat). Aminopyralid with 2,4D (Restore) can be used in pastures. The problem with Canada fleabane comes with herbicide resistance. Ontario reported its first glyphosate resistant version of the weed in 2011. In some counties, it also resists paraquat. Elsewhere in the world, fleabane has evolved to tolerate atrazine and Group 2 ALS inhibitors. FILE PHOTO

Organic agriculture examines ways to tackle food waste ORGANIC MATTERS



he good people of Brussels were literally fed up with food waste. A meal was provided in the city centre, completely free of charge for 6,000 people. The labour was volunteered. The food was rescued on its path to the landfill. Supplies includ-

ed leeks that were deemed unfit for market because they grew too large, and bean trimmings that had to be removed to make the beans fit in their packaging. The organizing group was Feed the 5,000, which gets its name from a Christian parable about feeding the hungry. It reminds us that one in eight people go hungry in a world that produces enough to feed everyone 1.5 times over. This is obviously an ethical problem. It is also an economic and environmental problem when it comes to food disposal. Experts at the recent Grow Saskatoon conference spoke about food security for those in Canada dealing

The organic system is based on the core values of nutrient cycling and efficient use of nutrients with poverty. Some mixed messages came from this. For instance, communal gardens were seen as interesting venues around which to build social programming. However, they were not seen as a cost effective way to provide food. It was cheaper to rent out the space and buy food with the rent money. Perhaps this venerates the rare skill of those who can make a living producing food. But the attitude that food production is not economical

and should be outsourced explains why so few people see farming or market gardening as a viable career prospect. That seems to me to endanger our food security even further. Presenters at one of the Grow Saskatoon sessions discussed using tilapia, a fast growing fish, in combination with greenhouse production. The tilapia eat culled plant material and the fish wastes provide fertility for the plants. This mimics natural plant and animal systems by closing the food loop and provides a number of efficiencies. A participant in a session looking for paths to food security asked about food waste and the response was: “The poor are not human tilapia.” Obviously, the poor should not be condemned to eat garbage. With all the indignities that our society places upon the poor, they certainly don’t need another put down. However, perhaps we of all economic stripes need to consider developing a more nuanced food system, with categories between pristine and garbage. Perhaps it is hard for the mainstream food system to welcome diversity. Packages fill better and stack more effectively if everything is exactly the same. However, mainstream systems also have the volumes needed to make cull processing effective. Compost the truly inedible and use the irregularly shaped, oversized and outer leaves to make juice, stew and broth. Waste would be reduced at the farm level if uniformity standards were less strict and reasonable markets were available for seconds. As well, it makes sense to feed plant culls to pigs and chickens as well as tilapia. So does composting, as a last resort. At home, we need to remember our culinary traditions: • When the bananas get brown, they are ideal for banana bread. • When the tomatoes are soft, its time to make salsa. • Broccoli stems are great in soup. • Peels add nutrients to the broth. • Leftovers make good lunches. What does this have to do with organic agriculture? Organic agriculture is based on ecosystem values such as nutrient cycling and efficient use of nutrients. Colossal food waste is yet another feature of the mainstream food system that we need to reconfigure to be true to the core values of organic systems.

How can we do that? I think there are a number of approaches. First, let’s share the quirky. A lot of people these days don’t garden. They aren’t familiar with two legged carrots, tomatoes that aren’t perfect spheres or zucchini that get a bit large. Once people recognize these as perfectly normal, perhaps they’ll buy them too. Foodies find it trendy to buy oddly shaped heirloom tomatoes, flying saucer shaped zucchini and purple carrots, so perhaps the time is ripe. Next, there needs to be a more reliable market for quality product. Community shared agriculture is one such option. Subscribers sign up at the beginning of the season, committing to and paying for regular purchases. This allows operators to plan accordingly and to avoid the disappointment and waste that comes from rainy days at the market. Operators often make arrangements with subscribers so that food baskets that are not picked up will be donated to the food bank. Sometimes they also arrange for baskets to be subsidized by churches and other benefactors so that lower income subscribers can participate. Producers then need a viable market for culls. Fruit growers do a marvellous job of this when they add spreads, juices and wines to their product lines. Maybe these aren’t options for vegetable growers, but almost any vegetable can be pureed and hidden in a power-packed spaghetti sauce. Could the cost of value adding be recovered in this way? For grain growers, cull grain has traditionally gone to the livestock feed market. And finally, composting on the farm also makes eminent good sense. At the Grow Saskatoon conference, organic farmer Michael Abelman said his operation didn’t really produce waste. He had sales and he had compost. Of course, any of the product that hits the compost while it is still edible is not reaching its true potential, but compost is better than landfill. So can organic agriculture take a step closer to its core values and provide leadership in the area of food waste? The opportunities abound. It remains to be seen if enough people will step forward and diversify the organic marketplace. For more information, visit www.

FNA defends hiring of temporary foreign workers Recruits will come from Ukraine and Ireland BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

The Temporary Foreign Worker Program has come under scrutiny lately, but farmers aren’t part of the problem, says Bob Friesen of Farmers of North America. FNA, a farm services and marketing group based in Saskatoon, initiated a program last fall to help farmers hire foreign employees. The first participant in the program recently arrived in Canada and will work for Vern Schultz, who farms near Unity, Sask. Schultz grew weary of a persistent labour shortage on his farm and applied to the FNA program. “We’ve struggled for five years to find local people to work for us. We put out ads online. We tried the trainee program and couldn’t get someone,” he said in a statement. “After awhile, you’re exhausted and tired of it.” The FNA said it has recruited 25 foreign employees from Ukraine and Ireland. They will arrive in Canada later this spring. The FNA launched the program last fall in collaboration with a recruiting firm and an immigration consultant. “We heard from our members that they were having a challenge getting labour for (their) farms … and (we) decided to implement a program,” Friesen said. “We contact the ILC, the International Labour Council. Their Canadian head office is in Saskatoon and they also have an office in the Ukraine…. They will have a labour

pool they can go to, they source the skill level required by the applicant and do all the arrangements … to bring a person over.” Friesen said the controversy surrounding the program has made it more difficult to jump through the regulatory hoops. The federal government imposed a moratorium on the program for the food services sector in April. In widely reported incidents, three McDonald’s in British Columbia allegedly gave more shifts to foreign workers, and a restaurant in Weyburn, Sask., fired long-time waitresses to hire foreign labour. Friesen said the farmers in the FNA project have no intention of abusing the program. “(They) are quite aware of the due diligence they have to do … to make sure there isn’t domestic labour available,” he said. “They’re also quite aware this isn’t about saving money and paying lower wages. They are quite prepared to pay the wages required by whatever skill level they need.” Hog producers in Manitoba want the federal government to make it easier to hire temporary foreign labour for farm work. Cal Penner, who farms near Argyle, Man., said it’s nearly impossible to hire locals to work at hog barns. He recruited two employees from the Philippines for his farm. Fifty percent of the employees on Manitoba’s independent hog farms are foreign workers, he added.

Australian wheat off to good start SYDNEY (Reuters) — Heavy rain across Western Australia has provided near ideal wheat growing conditions. It boosts the outlook for the world’s third-largest exporter after plantings on the east coast were helped by rain last month. Much of Western Australia, the country’s largest wheat producing state, was expected to receive up to 50 millimetres of rain last week, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology said, coming after pockets of the western wheat belt received record April rain. Analysts said the rain may see Western Australian farmers advance wheat

seeding, while the crop already in the ground will be boosted. “It is a fantastic start to the season in We s t e r n Au s t ra l i a,” s a i d Lu k e Mathews, a commodities strategist with Commonwealth Bank of Australia. “Moisture is the single biggest limiting factor for Australian agriculture, and additional rain at this time of the year, even if it does hold up planting momentarily, the rain will be welcomed by producers.” However, Australia’s production remains at risk from a return of an El Nino, despite the favourable growing weather. The weather bureau has pegged the

Higher beef prices may hurt sales Chicken could rule the roost | Some butchers are reducing their profit margins or promoting cheaper cuts to keep customers BY JEFFREY CARTER FOR THE WESTERN PRODUCER

Good times may have returned for beef producers, but they come with a proviso, says the George Morris Centre’s senior market analyst. The industry is likely to lose market share. Kevin Grier expects the loss to present a challenge when production begins to increase. “The bottom line for the cattle and beef industry is that there is going to be serious challenges to beef market share during 2014. Part of the challenge is that grocers and consumers will turn their attention toward competing meats, particularly chicken,” Grier said. “Fewer features will mean that beef sales tonnage will decline in Canada. In addition, even ignoring features, the overall price of beef is going to increase.… That means Canadians will simply eat less beef.” He said retail margins on beef sales have shrunk to 20 to 25 percent in the last half of 2013 compared to the previous five years. Canfax market analyst Dallas Rodger said retail prices are now at

historical highs. He said grocery chains in Canada and the United States have decreased their flyer promotion of beef, but that doesn’t mean they have abandoned the category. It remains an important part of their business and is linked to other grocery categories, such as barbecue sauce. “There are some people who come into stores solely to buy beef. You can’t just cut off the market,” he said. “Some retailers are willing to take a loss or take less of a profit or break even.” Rodger agreed that cattle numbers won’t increase soon. The earliest that could occur would be 2016, he added. Some cow-calf producers are starting to hold back more heifers as replacements. Jim Clark, executive director of the Ontario Cattle Feeders’ Association, said it will take more than a couple years for cattle numbers to increase substantially. There have been too few months of profitability for producers to forget the years of low prices that preceded them, he added. Clark is the driving force behind the

Ontario Corn Fed Beef brand, through which 289,000 finished cattle were marketed last year. He said promoting less expensive cuts is one of the strategies that the program uses to sell beef in grocery stores. A good example is the brand’s recipe suggestion for slow-cooked bone-

less blade or chuck to make pulled beef. Clark said beef exports are also strong. Japan is back in the market, there are well-heeled buyers in the Middle East and demand in Southeast Asian has increased. “There are many people in the world craving the North American

lifestyle who have the wealth to pursue it,” he said. Clark said the Ontario beef industry’s long-term success depends on maintaining the cow-calf sector. “My fear is that we’re going to lose an entire generation of producers and their knowledge,” he said. “We need to stop the erosion of the eastern cow herd and we need to rebuild. This is not a short-term gig. It’s a long-term job.” He said a good first step would be to encourage the remaining cow-calf producers to expand their operations, even it’s only another 10 cows. From there, consideration should be given to drawing a new generation to the business. The transfer of cow-calf operations could be supported through a government guarantee program for older farmers looking to transfer their assets and their cattle know-how, Clark said. The buyer could be a family member or just an ambitious young person with an interest in farming. Clark said the challenge is considerable because pasture, fences and other cow-calf infrastructure are disappearing.





Climate change puts parasites on watch list Treatments lacking for goats | Intestinal parasites are becoming more common with longer, wet springs BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Climate change could affect how parasites affect goat herds, says veterinarian Dr. Chris Clark. The Saskatchewan winter climate didn’t support much parasite survival until five years ago, the Western College of Veterinary Medicine professor told the Saskatchewan Goat Breeders Association annual meeting. “Things are changing,” he said. “Yes, the environment here is good (to raise goats) but those long wet springs are dangerous.” Intestinal parasites are common around the world, but no anti-parasitic drugs are licensed for goats in Canada. A veterinarian can prescribe drugs off-label, but Clark said the industry will have to lobby for change if it wants better treatment options, particularly if more or different parasites adapt to the climate. Coccidiosis is one parasite that bears watching. It shows up mainly indoors, in goat kids and in bedding because the eggs need the warmth and moisture that bedding provides. It is shed in feces and often gets worse as kidding progresses. Kids pass a large number of eggs, which are taken up when grazing or licking. “We can see it as early as eight days of age,” Clark said.

With no anti-parasitic drugs licensed for goats in Canada, producers have few treatment options. | However, it more commonly shows up from two weeks to one month of age. Signs of the parasite include scours and straining. “In a group you can see high morbidity,” he said. The eggs are tough to kill, but there are ways to break the disease cycle. Clark said Baycox, a newer product from Bayer Animal Health, shows promise. It can be administered at two to three weeks of age to help prevent the spread. Haemonchus is another parasite to

watch. It is sometimes called barber pole worm for its striped colouring. Clark said the worm, which is found in the abdomen, is limiting small ruminant production around the world. The disease is rare on the Prairies, but the longer, wetter springs are creating conditions for it to survive. It needs temperatures of 18 to 26 C and 100 percent humidity at ground level. Kids don’t present with scours, but they don’t do well and develop what’s called bottle jaw.


Repeated deworming has been the traditional control method, but resistance has become an issue. “This parasite is resistant to a lot of drugs,” Clark said. “Ivermectin doesn’t even seem to touch this anymore.” Applications can sometimes result in only a 10 percent reduction in eggs when it should be more like 90 percent, he said. Still, fall deworming remains a good idea. Most eggs in the pasture will die over the winter.

Moving kids to new pastures at weaning can also help. Clark said it is important to provide the correct dose of any control products. All new additions to a herd should be treated as part of on-farm biosecurity protocol. “Weigh, them, dose them with dewormer and wait three to four days before turning them out,” he said. He also said dewormer classes should not be rotated because that increases the chances of resistance.


Crypto parasite infectious, treatment options few ANIMAL HEALTH



r yptosporidium par vum, commonly known as crypto, is a microscopic parasite that can cause diarrhea in humans and animals. This tiny single-celled organism has been the cause of large outbreaks of human disease in Canada and the United States, in some cases infecting thousands of people through contaminated water supplies. The parasite has a short life cycle and can reproduce within 12 hours inside the intestinal wall. It is spread from person to person, through animal to person contact or by ingestion of contaminated food or water. Poor hygiene is often a factor in spread of the disease. Crypto can severely affect people with compromised immune systems, and symptoms may persist for long periods of time. It is a serious disease in AIDS patients and can sometimes be fatal. Cryptosporidium parvum infects mammals, including cattle, sheep

goats, pigs, horses, wildlife and humans. There are also subspecies that may be restricted to humans or restricted to cattle. Cryptosporidiosis has been identified as a common cause of neonatal diarrhea in young dairy calves and is sometimes overlooked as a cause of diarrhea in young beef calves. Most producers are aware of coccidiosis as a cause of diarrhea in beef calves, but cryptosporidium is sometimes not as well known. The parasite is highly infectious and is capable of long survival times in the environment. It does not multiply in the environment, but it is not destroyed easily by freezing or drying and is resistant to many disinfectants. Unfortunately, there is no specific treatment for cryptosporidiosis. Both humans and animals are treated with supportive therapy such as fluids to prevent dehydration. Calves are often infected early in life, and a high proportion of calves can be shedding the parasite by the second week of life. The most common clinical sign is a mild to moderate diarrhea at five to 15 days of age. The duration of diarrhea tends to be a little longer than is typically seen in calves infected with viral or bacterial causes of diarrhea. It rarely causes severe dehydration and collapse, although calves may lose weight and be mildly dehydrated.

The cryptosporidium parvum parasite can be found on dairy and beef farms. Young calves will suffer moderate diarrhea and may become dehydrated. | WENDY DUDLEY PHOTO A National Animal Health Monitoring System study conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture collected samples from diarrheic beef calves from 69 operations as well as samples from beef calves without diarrhea from 141 operations. Twenty percent of the calves with diarrhea were positive for cryptosporidium, while 11.2 percent of the non-diarrheic calves were positive.

The study showed that cryptosporidium is not just a disease of dairy calves. It is also common on beef cow-calf farms. The study also showed that younger calves are more likely to be shedding cryptosporidium than older calves. We also know from other studies that many calves with diarrhea may hav e m i x e d i n f e c t i o n s, w h i c h include both viruses and crypto-

sporidium together. A veterinarian can diagnose crypto by sending fecal samples from diarrheic calves to a diagnostic lab, which can identify the oocysts or eggs of the parasite under the microscope. Crypto is difficult to control because it can survive in the environment and is resistant to many disinfectants. Reducing the number of oocysts ingested by calves will probably reduce the severity of the disease. Calves with diarrhea should be isolated from healthy calves and kept separate for several days after recovery. The basic principles of reducing infection pressure are important in preventing the disease. These include maintaining a clean calving area, spreading cow-calf pairs out and using separate turn-out areas or some form of calving system that minimizes environmental infections. Ensuring that calves receive adequate colostrum is critical, just as it is for almost all young calf diseases. Many of the biosecurity strategies that we apply to viral or bacterial calf scours are also applicable to minimizing the effect of cryptosporidiosis.

Need for speed: pulled over on the information super highway COWBOY LOGIC


Anticipation builds with the new possibilities fibre optic lines will bring


thought we were pretty hip and high tech when the ranch first got dial-up access to the internet. Coupled with a fax machine, my little freelance writing office on the northern edge of Smokey Lake Township was on the cutting edge of the information revolution.

Our local telephone co-operative has always worked hard to provide us the same conveniences of modern life as our city cousins. It has kept us connected ever since the days when it strung the copper lines that connected our voice to the telephone operators in town. There wasn’t much money to be made in providing those services to farms and ranches strung out over miles and miles of countryside, so country folks did it themselves, and did it co-operatively. Everyone chipped in and worked together, their government lent some capital and life got better in rural places: rural telephone, rural electricity, rural water, and, soon, rural broadband. We’ve had something faster than dial-up internet access for a while, but I wouldn’t go so far as to call it high speed. The co-op is doing the best it can to

amplify the signal that carries the data on our old underground copper wires, but with every neighbour between our place and town trying to post a Facebook status, watch a YouTube on how to train a cow dog or Google the latest information on a long lost relative who might possibly write them into their last will and testament, there’s not much data trickling out the far end of the pipe anymore. But help is on the way. Our co-operative is plowing fibre optic line to the homesteads this summer, and then we’ll really be able to stream some video and music and social media. For now, though, on particularly slow days, when I can’t find enough other inside tasks to do while I wait for something to download, I take the drastic step of going outside and getting to work. Of course, chores are done with a smartphone in my pocket so I can

catch up on my email and check the weather and the commodity markets while I’m driving from the hay yard to the cows. Doing that, though, I discovered that if I was in the right spot, I could get faster internet on my phone than I could in my house. That gave me an idea. I would take my office out on the range until the fibre optic cavalry rides into our yard later this year to save the day, and possibly our marriage, and my writing career. Like my ancestors who realized the importance of rural electricity and rural telephone to keeping their marriages intact, I’m realizing the importance of rural broadband to the happy modern marriage. So, I upgraded my iPad to the kind that pulls in a cellular signal, and I got a keyboard for it. And, if my internet gets too slow, I get in the pickup with my iPad and drive up to the top of the

hill where I know I can pick up three or four bars of cell signal. There I can sit and set up my hilltop office: writing, working, crunching numbers, researching and wasting time on social media when I should be working. However, the view is pretty good as I look across the prairie horizon, watch cows roam their paddock and listen to the meadowlark on a nearby fencepost. And if I’m sitting there this summer when the crew drives by plowing in the fibre optic line to our house, I wonder if I’ll follow them in to resume my spot at the desk in our house. I’m guessing it’ll depend on the size of my cellphone bill. If I’m exceeding my cellular data plan, I’ll probably jump on the trencher and help them snake the line right into our house.

New technology enables improved meat grading Linking production with value | Infrared spectroscopy can scan a carcass and an X-ray absorptiometry machine can assess bone density BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

TORONTO — The ranking of beef and pork carcasses may be due for a change. Grading systems have been around for decades, but new technology can assess carcasses at the molecular level for a better estimation of lean meat yield, fat cover and other commercially valuable traits. Scientists at Agriculture Canada in Quebec and Lacombe, Alta., are among those looking at new ways to analyze a side of pork or beef. A grading system places carcasses with similar characteristics into commercial groups, but it may not be discovering the full value. “If we want to pay producers in relation to the quality of their product, we are not there,” said Candido Pomar of Agriculture Canada, who is studying new ways to analyze pork. “If we want to send a clear signal to the production sector and stimulate the production of the most valuable carcasses, we are not there.” The current pork grading system uses carcass weight and a lean meat yield standard. The carcasses can then be sorted by weight and lean meat, but the composition and quality of the hams and loins could be different. Visual assessments and meat probes to measure fat and lean depth have limited benefits and do not provide much information. Pomar told the Canadian Meat Council annual meeting held in Toronto May 6-9 that the system should go further so that it measures quality to the level of the actual cuts. Assessing cuts such as hams and loins could help the industry pay producers more fairly and make improvements so that buyers receive what they want. Video image analysis gives a clearer

picture on the slaughterhouse floor of each carcass. A video camera takes a picture of the whole carcass and then the image goes to a computer to measure and analyze it for composition and value. Pomar said a new pork carcass quality assessment method could precisely determine the weight, composition and value of each carcass. It would then evaluate the composition and weight of each cut. The next step would be to improve carcass cutting for the market, evaluate genetic merit of individual carcasses, establish a better payment scheme and provide the right signal to producers who want to improve carcass quality. Oscar Lopez-Campos of Agriculture Canada’s research centre in Lacombe is looking at how to enhance a system that has 13 quality grades based on key factors such as sex, age, conformation, fat and meat colour and texture. The Canadian system was last overhauled in 1992 with the creation of the grades A, AA and AAA. Canada Prime was introduced in 1997 and requirements for minimum fat cover and muscling requirements were changed in 2001. Lopez-Campos said the current grading system is based on a test that a carcass passes or fails. It has to pass all the tests to receive the top grade. Research at Lacombe is looking at the actual dissection of carcasses to assess lean meat yield estimations. Vision analysis systems are used in Canadian plants to take a picture of the rib eye. They then use algorithms to estimate the yield and marbling. A rib eye is a yield Grade 1 if it has equal to or more than 59 percent lean meat, yield Grade 2 if the lean ratio is 54 to 58 percent and yield Grade 3 is it is less than 53 percent.


Grade 1

Lopez-Campos said Canada established algorithms for grading in 1993, but no updates have been made since then, even though cattle genetics have changed. He is also experimenting with a dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) machine, which is used in human medicine to assess bone density. The carcass is scanned and an image is generated. Information can be correlated with the carcass cutout to give a prediction of fat, lean and bone. He said this could update the

This simple tool is used across Canada by grading agency staff for a quick and easy assessment of carcass quality. yield equation without an expensive national cut-out study. Researchers at Lacombe are also using near infrared spectroscopy, which is a well-established technology in the grain and forage industry. It is a rapid technology and can scan a carcass as it moves down the processing line.

It can be used for grading and is able to segregate the dark cutters in beef at an accuracy rate of 90 percent. Dark cutters have dark, dry meat and are downgraded. Lopez-Campos said an added benefit of this collection of technologies is the possibility to create an international grading system.

Brazil confirms second case of atypical BSE

Weed resistance spreads fast in U.S. Palmer amaranth and glyphosate | Researcher says zero tolerance threshold is required

Animal developed BSE protein spontaneously


SAO PAULO, Brazil (Reuters) — Brazil has confirmed a second case of atypical BSE, a year after several countries banned Brazilian beef imports when a similar case of the disease was confirmed. The agriculture ministry said May 9 that a lab in Weybridge, England, approved by the World Animal Health Organization confirmed it was a spontaneous case of atypical BSE with no link to contaminated feed. The 12-year-old cow found dead in March in a slaughterhouse in Mato Grosso state was born and never left the same farm where cattle are fed by pasture grazing and mineral salts, according to a ministry statement. Classical cases of BSE are caused when cattle are fed brain or spinal tissue of other ruminants, which is now forbidden in nearly all beef producing countries, including Brazil. In atypical cases, the animal contracted the protein spontaneously, rather than through the feed supply. The ministry said the diseased animal was incinerated and none of its parts entered the feed chain. In late 2012, tests showed that a cow that died two years earlier in Parana state had developed the protein that causes BSE, though the animal never developed the disease and died of natural causes. The World Animal Health Organization maintained Brazil’s status as a country with an insignificant risk of BSE after it confirmed the atypical Parana case in tests carried out in England in 2012. Even so, several countries including South Korea, China and Egypt banned some or all beef imports from Brazil, the world’s top exporter.

The seeds from a single glyphosate resistant weed can destroy an entire crop. University of Arkansas scientists released seeds from a glyphosate resistant Palmer amaranth weed onto test cotton fields in the winter of 2008. By the summer of 2010, it had infested 95 to 100 percent of the test fields. “(It caused) complete crop loss since it was impossible to harvest the crop,” University of Arkansas weed scientist Jason Norsworthy said in the abstract of a paper published in the spring issue of Weed Science. “These results indicate that resistance management options such as a zero-tolerance threshold should be used in managing or mitigating the spread of GR palmer amaranth.” Norsworthy and his colleagues spread 20,000 seeds from a glyphosate resistant Palmer amaranth plant onto a one sq. metre patch of a cotton field. The four test fields had no history of glyphosate resistant Palmer amaranth and were small in size, ranging from 1.3 to 1.9 acres. By 2009, the second year of the experiment, the weed had spread to the edges of all four fields and infested 20 percent of the total area. Palmer amaranth covered all four test fields by the third year of the experiment, completely overwhelming the crop. “In this research, it took only 20,000 seeds initially introduced into one (metre sq. area) to effectively colonize .53 (1.3 acres) to .77 hectare (1.9 acre) fields … which is far fewer than the number of seed produced by most Palmer amaranth females,” Norsworthy said in the paper. “A single escape is way too many to allow for this species, justifying the


A U.S. study into glyphosate resistance in Palmer amaranth in cotton fields found the weed can quickly cause a complete crop loss. | FILE PHOTO need for a zero-tolerance approach in managing this weed.” Nasir Shaikh, a weed specialist with Manitoba Agriculture, said the Arkansas research on cotton is applicable to grain and oilseed crops in Western Canada. Glyphosate resistant kochia has been detected in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Shaikh said Canadian growers should consider a zero tolerance policy for glyphosate resistant weeds. “I would strongly support that position,” he said.

“It looks like a very impractical concept, but that should be the goal.” Palmer amaranth can produce more than one million seeds per plant, which is why it spreads quickly and rapidly develops resistance to herbicides. Kochia generates fewer seeds, but it is a tumbleweed and is larger than pigweed. “Kochia can easily grow to six to eight feet under good growing conditions,” Shaikh said. “It will have a more negative impact on the crop yields compared to the Palmer amaranth.”

Shaikh said zero tolerance for glyphosate resistant weeds includes regular field scouting, applying multiple modes of herbicides and hand weeding. Shaikh said it might take more than three growing seasons to take over an entire field if the Arkansas experiment was duplicated on the Prairies with glyphosate resistant kochia seeds. Still, like Palmer amaranth, glyphosate resistant kochia would eventually destroy the crop. “Definitely, it would end up in that same situation, sooner or later.”


B.C. report weighs pros and cons of proposed hydroelectric station on Peace River Landowners concerned about project | $8 billion facility would be the third hydroelectric generating station on the Peace River BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

An environmental review of the proposed Site C hydroelectric dam is as murky as the Peace River on which it would be built. The Joint Review Panel found that the benefit of British Columbia Hydro’s proposed 1,100 megawatt hydroelectric generating station is clear. It would provide large and long-term energy for future generations with the least greenhouse gas emissions of other power sources. The $8 billion project would also provide local and regional economic benefits but at “significant environmental and social costs.” “Based on our initial review of the report, we’re pleased that the Joint Review Panel confirmed that there will be a long-term need for new energy and capacity and that Site C would be the ‘least expensive’ of the alternatives to meet this growing demand,” said BC Hydro president Charles Reid.

However, Ken Boon, a Fort St. John area farmer and opponent of the project, said the panel report did a good job of capturing producers’ opposition to the dam. “Overall, I think it’s pretty good.” Boon said he expected a definitive answer in the report if the dam should go ahead or not, but instead the panelists analyzed specific points but didn’t make an overall recommendation. “Now, everyone is doing their own interpretation because they didn’t.” The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and the British Columbia Environmental Assessment Office released the Report of the Joint Review Panel for the proposed Site C project in British Columbia May 8. The panel’s mandate was not to make a decision on the dam but to assess the project’s potential environmental, economic, social, heritage and health effects. Both levels of government will review the findings and each make a decision on the

project within six months. The report made 50 recommendations on the project, including a number of precautions. If built, the Site C dam would be the third hydroelectric generating station on the Peace River. The Site C dam was first proposed as part of a series of dams on the Peace River in the 1950s. The W.A.C. Bennett dam was built in 1967. The Site B, or Peace Canyon Dam, was finished in 1980. The Site C dam has been rejected two previous times, but a need for electricity generated from cleaner sources has revived the project. Despite the expected economic benefits, the panel said creating an 83 kilometre reservoir behind the dam would cause significant adverse effects on fish and fish habitat as well as birds, bats, smaller animals, rare plants and sensitive ecosystems. It also said the project would significantly affect the current use of the land and traditional resources of aboriginal people.

Farmers who own land and farm along the river have long voiced their opposition to the project, which would flood their farmland. “It would end agriculture on the Peace valley bottom lands, and while that would not be significant in the context of B.C, or western Canadian agriculture production, it would highly impact the farmers who would bear the loss,” said the report. Boon said it was clear the panelists were sincere and earned everyone’s respect. “The one big disappointment for me in this report is they did not capture the importance of agriculture. We’re quite shocked about that.” If built, the water would come close to Boon’s river valley farm, but more importantly, flood valuable riverbottom land that is able to grow horticulture crops. The report said the Peace region is undergoing enormous stress from resource development, and the project would result in “significant cumulative effects on fish, vegetation and

ecological communities, wildlife, current use of lands and resources for traditional purposes and heritage.” BC Hydro said Site C is being proposed to meet future electricity needs, but the report said BC Hydro didn’t have a clear idea of the province’s needs. In its release, BC Hydro said it hopes to implement aggressive conservation methods to reduce electricity needs. “Seventy-eight percent of future d e m a n d i s t o b e m e t t h ro u g h demand-side management,” it said. “Site C provides the best combination of financial, technical, environmental and economic development attributes compared to alternatives.” Boon said landowners will continue lobbying government officials to kill the project once and for all. They also want the province to remove the flood reserve on the river valley land and develop a sustainable land use policy for the valley. “We’re planning on moving ahead. We’re not planning on losing this valley to Site C.”





Mustard demand, exports up Low carryout | Development commission pegs acres at 400,000 plus BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Mustard acres are set to rebound after three years of below normal plantings. Statistics Canada is forecasting 480,000 acres of the oilseed, up 32 percent from last year. Walter Dyck, manager of the seed division for Olds Products Co., the largest supplier of private label mustard in North America, thinks that estimate is accurate based on conversations he has had with certified seed growers. Demand for the crop has been solid in 2013-14, and movement has been better than most other crops. That is expected to result in a small carryout, which is supporting prices. Agriculture Canada is forecasting 30,000 tonnes of carryout. Yellow mustard prices are 36 to 37 cents per pound, down from the low 40s a year ago. Brown mustard is 33 to 34 cents per pound, down

from 38 cents. “(Growers) have not seen the drops that many other commodities experienced after harvest last year,” said Dyck. Mustard demand is usually stable, with exports averaging 10,000 tonnes per month for a total of 120,000 tonnes per year. An extra 15,000 to 20,000 tonnes will be shipped to the European Union this year because Ukraine had a disappointing mustard crop. “It is not a market that we have every year,” said Dyck. The strong demand and good movement means mustard has been a good performer in 2013-14. Patrick Ackerman, chair of the Saskatchewan Mustard Development Commission, agreed, but he thinks the acres won’t be as high as Statistics Canada is forecasting. “I think it could be closer to 400,000,” he said. Either way, it will move the crop back into the 400,000 to 500,000 acre

range after three years of sub-400,000 acre crops. “We’re building back up to kind of where we were,” said Ackerman. “The price of mustard has held up compared to everything else, and guys that had mustard were moving mustard and selling mustard and all their other crops are sitting in the bin.” The United States typically buys 5,000 to 6,000 tonnes of Canadian mustard a month, half of which moves by truck and the other half by rail. This year some of that rail business likely switched to truck, which is a big reason why mustard was moving when other crops weren’t. Ackerman expects 65 percent of this year’s acres will be seeded to yellow varieties, 35 percent to brown and five percent to oriental, which has really dropped off in recent years. Dyck anticipates mustard demand to remain steady, although the European market may evaporate this year.

Solid prices and good movement make mustard an attractive crop. |



Ukraine’s large farm co-ops are facing currency and financial constraints this year. “My understanding is that there is a good possibility that acres will increase because mustard is considered a fairly low input (crop),” he said.

Ukraine’s mustard inventories are extremely low, which is another reason growers will be planting more. Dyck’s biggest concern for Canadian mustard is the late start to spring. “There is no question it likes to go in early,” he said.

compared to sweet cherries, raspberries and green grapes. Evans cherries were also tested and rate comparably to the low end of the U of S varieties. PhD candidate James Dawson conducted the study under the supervision of Bob Bors. Hill said the health benefits of American sour cherries had been studied and used in marketing efforts, but the Saskatchewan varieties had not. Dawson’s work found that all five

varieties — Carmine Jewel, Valentine, Cupid, Romeo and Juliet — had high levels of the antioxidants known as phenolics, flavonoids and anthocyanins. Antioxidants are known to boost immunity and disease resistance. “We’ve now got solid evidence on the benefits of the U of S cherries,” Hill said. He said the cherries are significantly different than the varieties commonly grown in North America. They are a bit sweeter than most

sour cherries and can rival sweet cherries. Hill Berry Acres is entering its eighth growing season and has a dehydrated cherry product in 33 Saskatchewan stores. Hill said 250 acres are planted to cherries in Canada, mostly in Saskatchewan. They are an attractive option because they are growing in non-traditional areas where pests and disease haven’t been big problems. The expansion is catching con-

sumer attention, which is why knowing the health benefits is important. The previous studies have been done at the U of S agriculture college, but he said the proposal for the next study is for the kinesiology college. “I have a letter of intent to do a human health study because there’s some controversy in the research world today between what happens in the test tube, does it happen in the human body,” Hill said. “We need that evidence.”

AGT processes for humans, pets Diversification efforts | Alliance Grain Traders adds more production lines for specialty products

Canada’s economy is struggling, losing 28,900 jobs in April. The unemployment level stayed at 6.9 percent. On the week, the TSX composite fell 1.6 percent, the Dow rose 0.4 percent, the S&P 500 dipped 0.1 percent and the Nasdaq fell 1.3 percent. The Dow is at a record high. Cdn. exchanges in $Cdn.

Alliance Grain Traders is continuing its diversification into valueadded processing. The pulse processing giant commissioned a second production line at its food ingredients plant in Minot, North Dakota, during the first quarter of 2014. The line is operating at 50 percent capacity and should be at 66 percent by the end of the second quarter. “By the end of calendar year, we may be in a position where we have a Line 3 announced and hopefully getting ready to commission,” company president Murad Al-Katib said during a conference call with investment analysts to discuss AGT’s first quarter financial results. The Minot plant produces pulse flours, proteins, fibres and starches, which are expected to be in demand by food companies looking for ingredients with a low allergen profile that are gluten-free and non-genetically modified. But for now, most of the sales from the first production line are going into the pet food sector through an agreement with Cargill. Al-Katib said AGT’s newly formed food ingredients and packaged food segment has the greatest potential for future profits. The segment includes CLIC International, a Quebec retail packager and canning distributor bought in January. The segment contributed $132.26 gross profit per tonne compared to $52.53 from the traditional pulses and grain processing segment. “As we continue to ramp up this segment, you can rest assured I’m not expecting margins to come down,” said Al-Katib. A lot of the initial costs associated with the first production line won’t be there for later lines. AGT is considering converting all or part of three processing facilities in Regina, Williston, N.D., and Mersin, Turkey, to pulse ingredients production and fractionation.

TRANSPORTATION Al-Katib said it will help boost capacity use, which is at a disappointing 70 percent. Conversion of the Canadian plant could happen in 2015 if a feasibility and costing exercise supports the decision. One analyst expressed concern with slumping gross margins in the pulses and grain processing segment of the business, which were down from the first quarter of last year. “I thought at this point, with higher volumes, that we’d start to see the margins start to improve,” said Jacob

Bout with CIBC World Markets. Al-Katib said the first quarter of 2013 included results from the company’s value-added pasta business, which have since been transferred to the food ingredients and packaged food segment. “That has now all been stripped out,” he said. Al-Katib said the company also incurred increased transportation costs in the first quarter of this year because it was forced to ship product through east coast ports due to bot-

tlenecks at the West Coast. He estimates that that added $800,000 in extra shipping costs during the quarter. The rail transportation problems reduced earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) by an $1.5 to $2 million when he factors in the trucker strike at the Port of Vancouver and poor rail service. EBITDA for the quarter was $17.1 million compared to $13.6 million for the same period a year ago

Pattison Group buys Maple Farm Equipment, JayDee Equipment dealerships BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Jim Pattison Group of Vancouver has entered the agricultural equipment business in a big way. Canada’s largest privately held company has bought two Saskatchewan-based John Deere dealerships with multiple locations this year.

Maple Farm Equipment, founded in 1964 in Yorkton and with locations in Preeceville, Balcarres, Wynyard, Foam Lake, Moosomin and Russell, Man., changed hands in February. As of May 1, JPG acquired JayDee AgTech based in Swift Current. JayDee formed in 2009 with the merger of several dealerships in Swift Current, Maple Creek, Kyle, Kinders-

ley, Leader, Unity, North Battleford, Humboldt and Kelvington to become the largest privately held John Deere dealership in Canada. JayDee’s website states management and staff will be retained and operational decisions will continue to be made locally. Existing stores will continue, and the transition will be seamless.

The current partners, Duane Smith, Boyd Hofmann and Robin Hayes, remain at the helm. “While the decision to sell was a very difficult one at the start, we are very confident that we have made the correct decision and selected a new owner that will continue in our values of excellent customer service, staff support and development,

being the best implement dealer to the agricultural industry, supplying the best equipment, parts and service and growing for the future to meet the needs of our producer partners,” said the statement. Jimmy Pattison is the sole shareholder of JPG. Originally from Luseland, Sask., his father was a John Deere dealer in the early 1900s.





Understanding cost per acre ensures profitable expansion MANAGING THE FARM



roducers spend a lot of money on labour, power and machinery. Management has the most control over this category of expenses. When analyzed together, it can give producers a clear picture of the real cost per acre of their operations. Unfortunately, many operators still wrongly believe that these costs — especially machinery, which is often the bulk — can remain the same even as they expand their operation. This leads to crashing expectations down the road. A number of expenses can be considered together as labour, power and machinery (LPM): fuel, repairs and maintenance, depreciation, wages, custom work, machinery rental and other overhead expenses

that cannot be easily allocated to a specific crop. Producers who analyze these items as one category instead of as individual expenses are able to focus on their overall operating costs and not get lost in the details. Investment in machinery is the key driver for machinery costs per acre, but because of depreciation, the true cost of this investment is not always straight-forward. The easiest way to understand depreciation is to consider it as the amount it would cost to buy a full line of machinery, use it for three years and then sell it. The industry estimates that this cost is five to 15 percent per year. Depreciation isn’t only a function of use or number of hours. It also accounts for obsolescence, either by size or technological advancement. Producers must constantly weigh cost of investment in machinery with the ability to get the job done. Harvesting 2,500 acres with a 1965 vintage combine would keep costs low, but timeliness and the capacity to harvest the crop would make this situation impractical, if not impossible. On the other hand, the cost of own-

ing 10 new top-of-the-line combines to harvest the same 2,500 acres would virtually eliminate any hope of profit, even with the speedy harvest Repairs and maintenance costs are also a factor in machinery expense, and there is a notion that buying new machinery will lower these costs. It would seem to be a reasonable assumption, but it’s not necessarily true because an operator is more likely to fix every little item on a new machine, and newer machines typically cost more to fix in both labour and parts. Technology can make our operations more efficient and often more profitable. However, deciding which technology to adopt and at what pace presents a constant tug-of-war between long-term investment and shortterm profitability. There is a common misconception that expansion lowers an operation’s LPM costs overall because some of these are “fixed costs.” However, this is not so. When it comes to LPM, there is no such thing as a fixed cost. Expenses in this category will change and likely grow as a

farm expands, but how much they grow depends on management. I have seen well-managed farms at 3,000, 7,000 and 13,000 acres with LPM costs per acre of $90 and $100. I have also seen 2,500, 8,000 and 12,000 acre farms with a $130 per acre LPM. These were all good farms with similar gross margins. The real difference lies in expense management rather than acreage. Let’s say that a farm takes on another section of land in the spring. Management insists that the expansion will be no problem to handle with the machinery it already has. Then, come year-end, they bring in their records to have financial statements prepared and I see their “yeah, but” list. That’s the response I get when I remind them that they said they wouldn’t need new equipment to take on the expansion. Their response is “yeah, but we were a little under-combined so we decided to trade up to the bigger combine. And then the grain cart wouldn’t hold two full dumps easily so we traded that off. And then the auger was our bottleneck so we

bought the big one, but kept our old one as a spare just in case,” and so on. Of course, profitable expansion is always a good thing. The point here is don’t think your LPM cost will decrease by taking on more land. It won’t. More land means more combine, more drill, more sprayer and more of everything that is required to run the operation. Understanding and using your farm’s LPM cost per acre to assist in making decisions is complex. It costs more to farm today than it did 10 years ago because of inflation, new technology and the increase in costs caused by the recent increase in overall farm profitability. We have seen an increase in the average LPM cost from $50 to $70 per acre just a few years ago to $90 to $120 per acre today. With the pressure on farm profitability, it is more important than ever to be diligent in keeping these costs in check while ensuring the crop is seeded, sprayed and harvested on time.

Equipment dealers see sluggish sales but expect rebound as season progresses SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Used equipment sales are down in Western Canada as business slows because of delayed rail service following the 2013 growing season, dealers report. In addition to farmers’ cash woes, Rocky Mountain Equipment officials pointed to cold weather and delayed seeding as it reported lower sales and profits in the first quarter ending March 31. “It was just so, so cold. The farmers

weren’t out there looking to try and find a deal,” said Rocky Mountain’s Garrett Ganden. “They hadn’t started thinking about the seeding as of the end of first quarter, whereas last year it was a little bit earlier.” The company reported used equipment sales were down $20 million from the same period last year. The farm and heavy equipment retailer said sales of new and used equipment fell to $198.2 million, down four percent from the same point last year.

Officials at Cervus Equipment reported increased revenues in its operations last week, including a rise of $15.6 million in its agricultural segment, which includes western Canadian dealerships. In the quarter, the company increased its ownership stake in five Australian agricultural dealerships, which contributed to the increase. “However, favourable cattle prices in Alberta and early quarter purchasing on new equipment has resulted in consistent same store sales in our

Canadian agricultural operations,” said company president Graham Drake. He said there were greater inventories of used equipment but positive sales of new machinery. Speaking to investors, officials at both companies were optimistic about rail challenges being resolved and farmers’ prospects in the upcoming growing season. “It has been a cool spring, and seeding hasn’t progressed dramatically, but we’ve seen just how that can turn

around quite quickly,” said Drake. “We have good moisture conditions. The commodity prices have come up so I think that’s a positive.” Rocky Mountain’s decline in sales was partly made up by a 15 percent increase in service and support revenue as the company promoted preventive maintenance services and improved parts sales. It increased its annual dividend to shareholders to 46 cents per share and announced an additional dividend of 11.5 cents a share.
