Canada Pension Plan buys stake in Viterra


Many voices, mixed messages


The Canada Pension Plan has added more agricultural assets to its $282 billion investment portfolio. The pension plan’s investment board announced last week that it will pay US$2.5 billion for a 40 percent stake in Glencore PLC’s global agricultural assets. The deal is expected to close in the second half of the year and is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulator y approvals, according to an April 6 new release issued by the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB). Glencore’s agricultural products unit, known as Glencore Agri, owns agricultural assets in Canada and around the world. Its assets include Viterra ports and grain handling facilities in Canada and Australia. Glencore acquired Viterra in 2012 for $6.1 billion.

Canada’s 200,000 family farms rarely speak with a unified voice to ministers and people in power BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

“Ignored” has become a familiar word for readers of agricultural publications. Media stories regularly appear about agriculture being ignored in government budgets or in leaders debates and campaign platforms. Farm leaders and industry representatives typically say agriculture doesn’t receive its due because the public and politicians are disconnected from food production, or that Canadians don’t comprehend the size and significance of agriculture. But there might be another reason why farming is frequently ignored: Canada’s

agricultural community is fractured into dozens of groups. Consequently, the country’s 200,000 family farms rarely speak with a unified voice to ministers and people in power. “This is not a negative statement about farm organizations, but the individuals involved in agriculture on an individual farm … and on an organization basis, it’s not unlike herding cats,” said Lyle Vanclief, former federal minister of agriculture. Vanclief said he tried to meet with as many farm groups as possible during his time as ag minister from 1997 to 2003, but sorting through conflicting messages was a challenge.

Land value increases slowing BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

production, and entry level wages in that sector may be lower than entry level wages on western grain farms. The wage difference may also be geographic. Statistics Canada data shows that the offered wage for a greenhouse worker was $11.65 per hour in Ontario, $15 per hour in Manitoba, $19.60 per hour in Saskatchewan and $16.40 per hour in Alberta. With 6.8 percent of all jobs unfilled, the vacancy rate in crop production was nearly triple the rate for all sectors of Canada’s economy in the third quarter of 2015. However, the vacancy rate in crop production declined throughout 2015. Crop production employed 60,000 people In the first quarter of the year and 13.9 percent of jobs were unfilled. However, by the second quarter there were 83,000 employed positions and a vacancy rate of 10.9. “In the third quarter there were 104,000 (employees) … and the number of vacancies went down,” Bollman said. “So they (farm operators) were quite successful in ramping up the number of employees, which would include temporary foreign workers. From that point of view it’s a great success. On the flip side, there’s still 7,500 vacancies left … (or) 6.8 percent of their total demand.” Most of Bollman’s data came from the Statistics Canada job vacancy and wage survey, where employers are surveyed randomly during the three months of each quarter.

Farmland values are still on the rise, but the rate of increase continues its downward slide. Average farmland values in Canada rose 10.1 percent in 2015. That i s d o w n f ro m a 1 4 . 3 p e rc e n t increase in 2014 and a 22.1 percent hike in 2013, according to a report by Farm Credit Canada. FCC chief agricultural economist J.P. Gervais believes that trend will continue in 2016. He is forecasting a modest increase in the range of two to four percent this year because he believes crop receipts reached their apex in 2015 and are on the decline. But there will still be positive growth, unlike the United States where land prices have taken a downward turn, dropping five to six percent in the corn belt of the Midwest in 2015. The last time average farmland values fell in Canada was 1992. “We’ve had more than 20 years now of increases in farmland values,” Gervais told reporters. He emphasized that the FCC provincial and federal numbers are averages. There are regions in various provinces where values have dropped. G er vais thought the rate of increase in 2015 would be lower than it was. The biggest influence on farmland values is crop receipts and that ended up being a pleasant surprise. Statistics Canada has only compiled crop receipt data for the first nine months of 2015 but FCC believes it will beat the 2014 total by two percent and the previous fiveyear average by 11 percent. “When all the numbers are in 2015 could be a record year,” he said. A big reason receipts are up despite commodity prices being down is that the Canadian dollar was 17 percent lower on average versus the U.S. dollar than it was in 2014. The other major factor that influences farmland values is interest rates. The cost of borrowing money fell compared to 2014, which made it cheaper to buy land. Manitoba led all provinces with a 12.4 percent increase. Gervais said more grain farmers exited the business in that province than other provinces. “That triggered strong local demand for the land that’s available,” he said. Manitoba had been lagging behind Saskatchewan and Alberta in previous years. “There may be a little bit of catching up in Manitoba with respect to other provinces in the Prairies,” he said. Alberta was second with an 11.6 percent increase. Strong beef prices increased demand for grazing land. Saskatchewan ranked fourth behind Quebec with a 9.4 percent increase due in a large part to strong pulse crop prices. However, the rate of increase was well below the 18.7 percent experienced in 2014 and 28.5 percent in 2013.

Agriculture tops unfilled job list The average wage offered for a job in crop production was $12.35 per hour last year BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

It’s probably not a surprise to farm operators, but the percentage of unfilled jobs in crop production is the highest of any job category in Canada. Statistics Canada data from the third quarter of 2015 indicates the job vacancy rate for positions in crop production was 6.8 percent. The second highest job vacancy rate was for jobs at clothing stores, which was 5.4 percent. Third were restaurants, at five percent. “Because of the seasonal work in agriculture, you would expect it’s more difficult to hire people seasonally because most people (say), ‘I’d like a permanent job,’ ” said Ray Bollman, former chief of Statistics Canada’s Rural Research Group. Bollman has been sifting through federal data on agriculture and agri-food labour and has published labour market information updates for the Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council. In February, he produced a report on the third quarter of 2015, which made several conclusions: • 103,660 people were employed in crop production jobs. • 7,500 jobs in crop production were unfilled. • Ontario had 3,200 unfilled jobs, the most of any province. • The average offered wage for a job in crop production was $12.35 per hour. The average offered wage for a job at a clothing store was $11.60. A job in livestock production was $14.70. The average offered wage in crop

production doesn’t tell the whole story because the rate of pay was much higher in parts of Western Canada. Statistics Canada groups harvesting, landscaping and natural resource labourers into the same category. Within that group, the average offered wage was $14.35 per hour in Canada.

NEWS TAKING STOCK OF FARM GROUPS It’s difficult to measure the influence of agricultural organizations on public policy because groups use multiple tactics to sway public opinion and politicians. However, access to politicians and bureaucrats can be measured. The Office of the Commissioner of Lobbying in Canada publishes records of registered lobbyists talking to government officials. Registered lobbyists are typically the senior officer for an organization. Their name will appear on the lobbying reports, whether they participated in the communication or not. The following people, or representatives from their organizations, met with federal government office holders between Jan. 1, 2014, and Dec. 31, 2015.

Farmers have been known to go to great lengths to get politicians to listen to them. But beyond occasional short-term issues, they often have trouble finding a common voice. | FILE PHOTO

Divide and conquer

“It’s extremely difficult for a minister to get the real feel (for positions and priorities),” said Vanclief, who now works as a consultant and sits on boards in Ontario. “Once in a while … there would be members of a group that would say, ‘our executive, our board of directors, doesn’t represent (us).’ ” Vanclief said he consulted with the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, which promotes itself as the “single voice in Ottawa” for Canadian farmers. The CFA has 24 member groups, mostly provincial general farm organizations and commodity groups. However, several of those groups are small, such as Canadian Hatching Egg Producers, which represents 230 farmers. The CFA does have member groups in Saskatchewan and Alberta — the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan and the Alberta Federation of Agriculture — but they represent a small number of farmers compared to major commodity groups. SaskCanola, which has 26,000 levy-paying members, is not part of the CFA. “In theory, the Canadian Federation of Agriculture speaks (for many), but at the same time … all the individual organizations don’t belong to the CFA,” Vanclief said. He said the diverse array of groups in Canadian agriculture is distinct from the automotive industry, which typically speaks with a unified voice. “There isn’t a (separate) organization or a group that represents glove box covers and trunk lids and mirrors and fenders and hoods on cars,” he said. “But in the agriculture industry, they’ve got the wheat producers, the corn guys, the pork, the beef, supply management, and etcetera.” Amanda Lang, a well-known business journalist, has also said that Canada’s agri-food industry needs a loud and unified messenger. “Have your voice. Know how important you are,” she told the Canadian Agri-Food Forum last November in Ottawa. “I don’t know whether the top forces of this industry get together regularly … (but) organize yourselves.”

T h e Ca na d i a n A g r i c u l t u ra l Human Resource Council (CAHRC) lists agricultural associations on its website. There are hundreds of provincial organizations on the list, with dozens in each province: • Ontario: 79 groups • British Columbia: 68 groups • Alberta: 47 groups • Saskatchewan: 41 groups • Manitoba: 38 groups As well, CAHRC lists 87 groups that are national organizations. Some of them, such as the Canadian Guernsey Association, aren’t major players, but 20 to 30 groups do have power and influence. As a result, a cabinet minister or federal MP who wanted to understand the issues and concerns of western Canadian farmers would probably need to meet with 15 or 20 groups. “Who do you go to? Because everybody tends to have their own axe to grind,” said Cam Goff, a producer from Hanley, Sask., and former chair of SaskBarley. Goff said the lack of unity is problematic for Saskatchewan farmers and the agriculture industr y because it allows government to drive a wedge between groups. “I think we are very much suffering because … any government, if they look around, will find somebody that agrees with them,” he said. “Why should they listen to the Saskatchewan Wheat Commission when maybe the Alberta Wheat Commission has a different idea. That (division) is certainly … working to the detriment of farmers.” The former federal Conservative government was adept at exploiting differing opinions within the ag community, said Dan Mazier, president of Keystone Agricultural Producers. KAP is the largest farm organization in Manitoba and represents almost all of the province’s commodity groups, but agriculture minister Gerry Ritz held events in Winnipeg and didn’t invite KAP. “What happens with any government is they have trusted organizations,” Mazier said. “They’ll invite them in first, the trusted organization, they (the group) will say the sound bite and they’ll be invited to the next par-

It’s the responsibility of elected boards to set the direction of commodity and farm groups, said AFA president Lynn Jacobson. They could choose to co-operate more frequently but they often remain separate because it’s easier, he added. “One remark that has stuck with me is what (one organization) said: ‘We like what a GFO (general farm organization) does, but we can’t join your group because then we might have to compromise our position on something,’ ” he said. “Every (group) has staked out territory in the western provinces, and nobody wants to give up any of it.” SaskPulse chair Tim Wiens said commissions do work within partnerships, but they typically team up with a national group, such as Pulse Canada, to resolve issues within their sector. “(We) collaborate more at the national level than we do at a provincial level,” he said. “Are there issues that are common for all of the commodity groups, where you could get together and maybe have more influence? All I can say is maybe.” Leaders of Western Canada’s general farm organizations do meet to discuss common concerns, and commodity groups do collaborate on certain issues. However, Mazier said singing from the same songbook is the exception, rather than the rule, in Western Canada. “Alberta, you look at how fragmented that is. They’ve got lots of different voices (and) they’re a really good example of not being centralized,” he said. “They don’t have a strong, general farm organization pulling them together.” A l b e r t a c o m m o d i t y g ro u p s recently united around a common cause. Thirty organizations joined a coalition around the issue of Bill 6, proposed provincial legislation to set health, safety and labour standards on farms. “The crop and livestock sectors came together in a historic collaboration, unified by a common goal to represent the agriculture industry

with a single voice as it relates to Bill 6,” said coalition co-chair Page Stuart. Mazier said the coalition could easily transform into a general farm organization that could be the “single voice” for Alberta family farms on multiple issues. “They’re right on the cusp of being something…. They have the organization sitting right there in front of them.” Join a general farm organization? The Alberta groups that united around Bill 6 aren’t planning to turn the coalition into a permanent organization, said Kevin Auch, Alberta Wheat Commission chair, but he hasn’t completely ruled it out. “There’s always strength in numbers. That’s why with Bill 6 we got together,” he said. “Whether there are other issues like Bill 6 that we could do the same thing, we’re not sure at this point…. There’s a possibility that we could morph this into something, but at this point there are no plans for it.” Commodity groups and individual producers in Alberta may object because a general farm group struggles to represent all of its members. “A lot of the issues that would affect a livestock (producer) really has no bearing on a grain farm,” Auch said.

“Or they even have conflicting interests. That’s where a general farm organization has difficulties.” The Canadian Wheat Board and the debate over its role divided prairie farm groups for decades. The CWB debate is now dead, with the exception of a few holdouts, and its demise may pave the way for more co-operation, said CFA president Ron Bonnett. “That’s over with now, and I think that’s one of the changes that likely makes it easier now to develop common positions,” he said. “(Now) there’s likely more difference sometimes between ourselves and the National Farmers Union than there is between ourselves and some of the commodity groups. I think there’s been a coming together with (the CFA) and a lot of the large commodity organizations.” Wiens said western Canadian producers could lobby groups to join forces and speak with a collective voice, but he thinks farmers appear to be content with the status quo. “If farmers had issues with the way they are being represented, I would assume they would be more vocal,” he said. “I don’t know if farmers are really asking for change right now.”






Sask. winter among mildest since early ’60s

“As an asset class, agriculture is an excellent fit for a long-term investor like CPPIB, and we are excited about the opportunity to acquire a significant stake in Glencore Agri, a leading agricultural business,” said Mark Jenkins, CPPIB’s senior managing director of private investments. “Glencore Agri complements our existing portfolio of agriculture assets, bringing global exposure, scale and diversification…. In addition, Glencore Agri’s experienced management team has a proven track record of growth, and combined with a successful business model, we see this as a compelling opportunity that aligns with CPPIB’s long-term investment horizon.” The deal with CPPIB is part of an ongoing effort at Glencore to reduce the company’s debt load in the face of declining commodity prices and soft global markets. Last September, the company said it would consider selling some of its Canadian grain handling assets in hopes of reducing company debt and maintaining the company’s credit rating. Glencore chief executive officer Ivan Glasenberg told a conference call with investors late last year that the company would consider selling agricultural assets in Canada and would also entertain offers to sell a minority stake in Glencore’s global agriculture portfolio. Steven Kalmin, the company’s chief financial officer, said Viterra’s assets would be a key piece in efforts to find an equity partner. “If we’re talking about (agriculture) infrastructure … it would be the former Viterra assets that would be the most sought after,” Kalmin said. Viterra is one of the largest grain handlers in Canada. Total storage capacity at its primary elevators in Western Canada is more the 1.8 million tonnes. Viterra officials declined to be interviewed last week but issued a statement April 6, saying Viterra welcomes CPPIB as a strategic partner. “CPPIB and Glencore both recognize the significant opportunities within global agriculture and they share our vision for future growth of the business for the benefit of our farm customers and other stakeholders,” said Viterra chief executive officer Kyle Jeworski. “The deal is expected to close in the second half of this year, and we do not anticipate any changes to how our business operates locally. Further, the Viterra brand will remain and will continue to represent our business across North America.” According to the terms of the deal, Glencore and CPPIB will retain their ownership stakes in Glencore Agri for a period of four years. However, Glencore reserves the right to sell an additional 20 percent of its equity. The deal is CPPIB’s latest foray into agriculture and is seen as a move that will diversify its agricultural holdings and limit geographic risks. In addition to Canada and Australia, Glencore controls agicultural assets in Europe and South America. CPPIB oversees a total portfolio valued at $282 billion. Its other agricultural assets include farmland holdings in Canada, the United States, Australia and South America, which are valued at close to $800 million.

Soil temperatures were surprisingly warm, considering snow pack wasn’t deep BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The winter of 2015-16 will go down in history as one of the mildest Saskatchewan has seen in the past 50 years. However, it wasn’t the warmest, says Virginia Wittrock, a climate research specialist with the Saskatchewan Research Council in Saskatoon.



-1.9 C Sour ce: Environment Canada

That title still belongs to the winter of 2011-12. “Yes, last winter was very warm,” Wittrock said. “But it wasn’t the warmest. It was actually the fourth warmest in the last 52 years for our climate station.” The SRC climate station is based at Saskatoon and has been collecting climate data from the same location since the early 1960s. Winter climate data is collected during a three-month period that includes December, January and February. The maximum average temperature during the 91 days of winter 2015-16 was -4.8 C. The highest maximum average winter temperature ever recorded by SRC’s Saskatoon station was -1.9 C in 2011-12. The second and third warmest winters on record were 1986-87 and 2005-06. Last winter was tied for first in terms of average minimum temperatures with 2011-12 at -12.6 C. Wittrock said the temperature in Saskatoon fell below -30 C only once last winter — to -31 C on Jan. 16. The mild winter temperatures were also reflected in warmer soil temperatures.

The SRC monitors daily soil temperatures at various depths during the winter, taking the measurements daily at 9 a.m. The lowest value recorded was -4 C in mid-January at the five centimetre depth, which is usually the coldest. That compares with 2014-15, when the coldest temperature at five cm was -9 C. Wittrock said the soil temperatures recorded this winter were a bit of a surprise, given that warmer temperatures are more likely to occur under a heavy snow pack. “We didn’t have a big snow pack this year,” she said. “The deepest it got was 14 cm and it was gone by March 11-12, so the snow pack wasn’t very deep, it wasn’t a very long (snow pack) and the soil temperatures didn’t get very cold.” The winter of 2015-16 also ranks as the 16th driest in the last 52 years, Wittrock said. “We got 32.1 millimetres of precipitation last winter and we usually get 38.2 mm.” The mild winter and warm soil temperatures could have a noticeable impact on insect populations and soil borne pathogens this year and affect farming and gardening operations during the coming growing season. Saskatoon had 24 days with maximum daily highs above 0 C between Dec. 1, 2015, and Feb. 29, 2016. The temperature normally gets above 0 C for only 16 or 17 days during a Saskatoon winter. Saskatoon had 17 days with daily minimum temperatures below -20 C last winter, compared to 37 days normally.

Morocco in market for durum The drought stricken region will likely buy more Canadian durum, improving demand outlook BY SEAN PRATT

Algeria’s plan to become import-free no threat yet



Morocco’s durum crop is a wreck, which creates a significant export opportunity for the coming Canadian crop. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s attache in Morocco is forecasting 993,133 tonnes of production in 2016, which is down 59 percent from the previous year. “They’re in the grips of a serious drought,” said Bruce Burnett, G3’s weather and crop specialist. Morocco is expected to import three million tonnes of wheat and durum in 2015-16, and imports will likely rise to 3.9 million in 2016-17. Europe and the Black Sea region supply most of the wheat, and Canada is the sole supplier of durum. Burnett said Morocco imports high quality durum, which is why it likes to buy Canadian product. Millers and wheat importers in the North African country have asked the government to delay the usual April 30 implementation of durum import tariffs to the end of May because of the short crop. Morocco’s imports don’t fluctuate much, even in dry years, but this will be an exception to the rule. “This is a very substantial drought, so we’re probably going to see some increase in demand,” he said. It is one of the reasons why he is forecasting strong demand for Canadian durum and a continued price premium over spring wheat. Durum prices are currently under pressure from sales of the Mexican crop. “I think prices, after this dip, are probably going to strengthen here, especially if we see some weather difficulties,” said Burnett. He expects that 2015-16 Canadian durum carryout will be tight at one million tonnes because of a good export program. Burnett believes tight carryout and strong expected demand will give durum prices a premium of 50 cents to $1 per bushel over spring wheat, even if Canadian production ends up bigger than last year.


Crop specialist expects strong demand, and a tight durum carryout will bring a price premium over spring wheat. | FILE PHOTO The drought is not nearly as dire in Algeria and Tunisia, although neither country will produce binbusting crops. Production will be similar to last year’s droughtreduced harvests. Western Algeria has been hit by the same crippling drought as Morocco. Most of the durum is grown in the east, where there has been better rainfall, but there are important pockets of production in the west. The USDA forecasts 2.7 million tonnes of total wheat production in Algeria, which is the same amount as last year. Wheat imports are forecast to fall to seven million tonnes in 2016-17 from 8.2 million tonnes. Tunisia is expected to produce 1.1 million tonnes of total wheat, up slightly from last year’s droughtreduced 910,000 tonnes. Imports are forecast to fall to 1.7 million

tonnes from two million tonnes in 2015-16. Crop development in Algeria and Tunisia is further behind Morocco. “The question now is how the crop is going to finish in April and early May,” he said. Crop damage could be as bad as in Morocco if temperatures rise in April. The European Union is the other big production region to watch. The International Grains Council expects EU production to reach a six-year high of 8.7 million tonnes because of increased plantings and favourable growing conditions. Burnett said there is good soil moisture in France, Italy and Greece, but Spain is suffering from the same dry conditions as Morocco. There is still time for the EU crop to be stressed or to receive welcome rain before harvest.

Turkey is also on the dry side. Burnett believes the global situation adds up to strong demand prospects for Canada’s coming durum crop. “The missing piece to all of this puzzle right now is the quality because those countries are still all left to harvest yet,” he said. The quality of the EU crop, in particular, can have a major influence on Canadian durum demand, but that won’t be known until June. North American seeded acreage is the other big market factor. The USDA reports that American growers plan to increase acres by three percent. Burnett thinks the increase will be about the same in Canada. Statistics Canada’s seeding intentions report will be released April 21.

Canada is in danger of losing its second biggest durum customer if Algeria follows through on its plans to become self-sufficient in the crop. Those plans were briefly outlined in a U.S. Department of Agriculture report on the North African country. “Following the oil price drop, the Government of Algeria implem e n t e d m e a s u re s t o re d u c e imports,” stated the report. The USDA said Algeria is attempting to raise its grain production to seven million tonnes per year by 2019, up from four million tonnes in 2015-16. It would do that primarily by increasing durum output and becoming self-sufficient in that crop. “The Government of Algeria is boosting the output through improving irrigation by expanding areas irrigated to two million hectares (4.9 million acres) by 2019,” said the March 23 report. “Currently, only 12 percent of the arable land is irrigated.” The USDA said Algeria already pays for 50 percent of the cost of irrigation equipment.

Pea, lentil production in line with demand Robust demand from India and reduced African crops should offset rising production in Canada, the U.S. and Australia BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Stat Publishing is forecasting record world pea and lentil production in 2016-17, but strong demand should keep end of year carryout manageable. Global pea production is expected to be 12.4 million tonnes, up 19 percent from 2015-16. Lentil production is set to rocket to 6.3 million tonnes, a 28 percent increase. Stat is forecasting bigger lentil crops in Canada, the United States, Australia and Turkey. It didn’t have a breakdown of pea production by country. Stat editor Brian Clancey said robust demand from India, which has experienced two straight years of disappointing kharif and rabi crop harvests, will prevent the increased world supply of pea and lentils from weighing down prices. “In my mind, you’ve got a situation where probably there’s a lot of things that you can look at that will help support prices through the end of the calendar year,” he said. India is expected to import 5.6 million tonnes of pulses in 2015-16, up from 4.6 million tonnes the previous year and 3.6 million tonnes two years ago. G. Chandrashekhar, a policy analyst and commodity commentator, pointed out in the latest issue of Saskatchewan Pulse Growers’ Pulse Market Report that there was unmet demand in India even with soaring imports. “It is important to note that despite a production decline of two million tonnes in each of the last two years, India’s imports increased by only one million tonnes,” he said. Weather forecasters are calling

Analyst thinks new crop pea and lentil prices will peak before the end of the year and then drop in 2017. | for normal total monsoon rainfall for the coming summer or kharif crop, but they expect it will start dry and finish wet. And that does not guarantee a good crop. “The summer crop could still be down. It could be down a lot,” said Clancey. He sees continued good pea and lentil movement out of Canada through the fall shipping period. Clancey believes new crop pea and lentil prices will set their highs before the end of the calendar year

» CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE Cam Dahl, president of Cereals Canada, said this is the first he has heard of the new self-sufficiency policy, but he doesn’t consider it a threat to Canadian durum exports. “If this is a domestic policy that Algeria is pursuing, it is something we will need to watch and perhaps adjust marketing programs, but I don’t see that need yet,” he said. “They’re a good customer and a loyal customer, and I think that will continue.”



Algeria was the number two buyer of Canadian durum last calendar


and then drop in 2017. One of the reasons he thinks that will happen is that Canadian farmers have just gone through two crop years where the opposite occurred. He believes farmers are going to hold off on selling their pulses until 2017, believing that prices will peak in the new year. That would result in more competitive bids in the fall and winter of 2016 and slumping prices in 2017. Production shortfalls in some African countries are also contrib-

uting to Clancey’s bullish sentiment for the remainder of 2016 because it will limit their pulse exports and increase their imports. “It’s not that they produce peas and lentils, but as you reduce the supply of various types of beans or chickpeas or different items, you create the opportunity for a certain amount of substitution,” he said. With continued strong demand out of India and less export competition out of Africa, Clancey forecasts that world carryout of peas and lentils will not be a burden

even with record production of the crops. He anticipates 840,000 tonnes of global pea carryout, which would be 35 percent more than this year. However, the stocks-to-use ratio would be a manageable 6.9 percent, or 25 days of supply. Lentil carryout is expected to be 628,000 tonnes, resulting in a 10.7 percent stocks-to-use ratio, or 39 days of supply. “If you’re under 10 percent, it’s considered sold out,” said Clancey.

year, buying 749,000 tonnes of the crop. Italy was the top customer, buying 1.17 million tonnes. “They (Algeria) import very good quality, too,” said Dahl. “That is the thing about couscous. They want that very good colour, in particular, that comes with buying Canadian durum wheat.” Bruce Burnett, weather and crop specialist with G3 Canada, said it is not out of the realm of possibility that Algeria could become selfsufficient in durum production.

“They certainly could if they were to put the financial resources to it,” he said. “It will take a while to do that if they’re going to do it.” He agreed with Dahl that it is certainly something worth keeping an eye on. This isn’t the first time Algeria has attempted self-sufficiency. The g ov e r n m e n t m a d e a s i m i l a r announcement in 2010, when it set a target of cutting durum and wheat imports by at least twothirds by 2014 by boosting domes-

tic production. The government said it would provide its farmers with subsidies of US$2.7 billion per year to make that happen. It didn’t happen. Algeria imported 7.26 million tonnes of wheat and durum in 2014-15, which was quite a bit more than the 6.3 million tonnes it imported the year the selfsufficiency policy was announced. Imports rose to 8.18 million tonnes last year.

Observers don’t place too much importance on the recent shipping increase, saying it had more to do with how low freight rates had fallen than the overall health of the industry. | FILE PHOTO


Ocean freight rates still near historic lows The Baltic Dry Index rises to 555 from 290 Feb. 10, but it’s still a long way from the peak of 11,793 set in May 2008 BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

The Baltic Dry Index, the measuring stick for the cost of shipping dry cargo, has been steadily rising for the last two months. However, the news isn’t a significant worry for exporters of grain, iron ore and coal because the index is creeping upward from its lowest level in history. The BDI sank to 290 points Feb. 10, which was a far cry from its peak value of 11,793 set in May 2008 and even the 1,400 level set in February 2014. As of April 11, the index had climbed from its low to reach 555 points. Market watchers have suggested the increase is a sign of a turnaround and that the cost of shipping bulk goods may return to more normal levels. However, Peter Sand, an analyst with BIMCO, the world’s largest international shipping association, isn’t as confident. In a tweet posted early April, Sand said the industry remains in dire straits. “If the dry bulk market were a

patient, it would be close to dead” Global grain companies monitor the cost of shipping bulk goods and use hedging strategies to limit risk. Freight Investor Services (FIS), a global brokerage firm that buys and sells commodity futures, also trades shipping futures and derivatives. Martin Vera, branch manager for FIS in the United States, said the price for shipping dry bulk products picked up recently because there may be temporary “tightness” in the market. As well, prices were likely to bounce back because they had reached ridiculously low levels, and shipping firms were bleeding money. “C o m p a n i e s c a n ’ t s u r v i v e. They’ll just idle their ships,” Vera said. “ You expect this kind of rebound…. The question is, is there continuous demand that will keep vessels employed and produce a little more balance…. The question is whether this has real legs.” Sand said the economics of shipping iron ore, coal and grain is not going to improve anytime soon because the rate of building new

SHIPPING STILL TROUBLED The Baltic Dry Index, a measure of global freight rates for ships carrying dry bulk commodities such as coal, iron ore and grain, has rallied steadily since collapsing to a record low in February. The rally indicates a recovery from an oversold position and an uptick in shipping demand but volumes are still subdued and the huge overcapacity of ships remains.

ships exceeds the number of ships being scrapped. “We estimate 50 million DWT (dry weight tonnage) to be deliv-

ered and 40 million DWT to be scrapped,” he told Hellenic Shipping News Worldwide. Shipbuilders built more ships

from 2009-13 in response to the global boom in commodities. Shipping demand has flattened now that commodity prices have collapsed, mostly because China is importing less iron ore and other bulk goods. “BIMCO estimates the demand for both key imported commodities, coal and iron ore, will contract in 2016,” Sand said. “As the demand side is moving forward (at) a deadslow speed, cutting down on capacity is the only way to a significant improvement of the fundamental market balance.” Vera is slightly more hopeful about China and prices for shipping bulk goods. “China has reiterated that they are going to hit growth targets. That has changed sentiment a little bit. Chinese steel and ore markets have shown some strength,” he said. “Are they going to continue to build on their infrastructure? That’s generally accepted. Are they going to start really pushing for real estate development? I don’t think so.”


In a risk business, farmers must prioritize and manage HEDGE ROW



hat kind of a maniac crosses deadly desert wastes for fun, skis down avalanche-prone slopes for kicks and takes his young children hiking through the Himalaya and Caucasus mountains for holidays? Maybe it’s the same sort of person who builds a multimillion-dollar business that is dependent on weather, tormented by volatile commodity markets and relies on foreign markets and marketing systems that can suddenly shut down for months or years.

In other words, adventurer Bruce Kirkby seems a lot like a farmer, at least in terms of risk tolerance. He didn’t talk much about farming when he spoke at the Canola Council of Canada’s annual convention in March, and nobody wanted that, because, for gosh sakes, he’s a deathdefying adventurer. But pretty much everything the mountaineer, kayaker and skier said about operating safely in an environment of extreme, deadly risks applies more to farming than anything else outside extreme adventuring. “Our life is constantly about risk,” he said as he discussed “managing risk in uncertain and evolving environments.” Here are some of the risk management factors that he wrestles with when approaching a crazy adventure, with some farm examples that come to my mind in response: • Exotic risk factor: This is when a

dramatic but low-probability risk consumes all of our attention when we should instead be paying attention to numerous smaller risks that are actually likely to affect us. Think of obsessing over the spread of UG99 stem rust when you should be tuning up your tractor for spring. • Ignoring slow change and overreacting to abrupt change: Think of a farmer with a heavy debt load who focuses on short-term complications like nearby basis levels, which have much less chance of causing a crisis. Then, when something dramatic happens, they panic and overreact. • Underestimating voluntarily assumed risks: You choose to farm, which is a super-risky business endeavor, so you think, “heck, I’m OK with all this risk, I’m used to it. Been doing it forever.” Until you have a wreck and it’s all over.

• Categorizing near-misses as successes: Many farmers have survived multiple brushes with business death, whether it be crop disasters, market closures or price collapses. Some of them learn lessons and try to minimize those risks for the inevitable next time, while other guys think, “well, we always manage to pull through somehow,” and change nothing. • Forgetting about human error: Are you getting worked up about some anti-agriculture post you just saw on Facebook? Don’t let that distract you from putting the tractor into Park when you’re about to go underneath to fix something. Facebook isn’t going to kill you. Your tractor might. • Risk creep: Everything farmers do is risky, so it becomes easy to add multiple risks on top of each other and not notice how your overall risk exposure has in-

creased exponentially. • Expert halo: “Hey, those smart farmers down the road with the high-tech new equipment just seeded their fields two weeks early. They must know something. I’m going do the same thing.” • Multiple small errors causing major disasters: “How did we end up forward pricing none of this year’s crop?” • Bozos: Kirkby describes naysayers who tell you that you can’t do something as “bozos.” With adequate risk management, highrisk endeavors can be undertaken with minimal risk. However, skeptics will challenge you and try to scare you off, even when you’ve thought out everything and taken reasonable risk reduction strategies. Don’t listen to them. “There’s this excess of bozosity these days,” Kirkby said.





Shift to La Nina a new ball game MARKET WATCH



he possibility of an early shift to a La Nina might be the only obstacle to another year of ample global grain supplies and low crop prices. U. S. - b a s e d a g r i c u l t u ra l consultancy AgResource’s first forecast for 2016 grain prices was sobering with an outlook for harvest time prices for corn falling to US$2.80 per bushel, Chicago wheat at $4 and soybeans at $7.60. That assumes normal weather. Corn is currently about $3.55, wheat $4.45 and soybeans $9.25. A l l e x i s t i n g w e at h e r i s s u e s around the world are too small to threaten the expectation of continuing ample global crop supplies. Globally, the grain carryover from 2015-16 is a large cushion. U.S. farmers are contemplating a huge corn acreage this spring. South American grain is flooding out to world markets after a record harvest, and analysts think southern farmers will seek to boost production again next fall, particularly in Argentina where the government has removed regulations that restricted exports. Focusing in on wheat, the weak prices of the last year are leading to reduced acreages for 2016-17, but again, not enough to make a significant difference. For example, American farmers intend to reduce the total area of winter and spring wheat by about


five million acres, or nine percent. However, the production lost from the fewer acres would be entirely offset by the increase in carry-in stocks so that total U.S. wheat supply for 2016-17 would be about the same as in 2015-16. Markets had been watching for crop condition declines in the U.S. hard red winter wheat crop because of dry weather since the start of this year. Farmers were worried, but now rain is forecast for the April 16-17 weekend, which should halt the decline. Meanwhile, the U.S. Midwest and Delta regions have normal to above normal soil moisture going into seeding. All this is keeping crop markets on a negative footing. What could knock them off that trend? A rapid transition to a La Nina.

A July arrival of La Nina could hurt corn and soybean yields Weather experts began to talk late last year of the potential for a swing from the El Nino that dominated the weather for the past year straight into a La Nina, bypassing a neutral phase. El Nino is warmer than normal water in the east-central equatorial Pacific Ocean. La Nina is cooler than normal water in the same region. Ocean temperature readings in February and March indicated that the transition might be a bit slow, meaning a La Nina might not establish itself until autumn. However, the latest data now indicates the potential for an earli-

er arrival. Late summer would probably still be too late to have a major effect on American crop yields, but if it were to arrive in July, that would make things interesting. A La Nina summer in the U.S. Midwest tends to be hot and dry. Scott Irwin and Darrel Good of the University of Illinois looked at the history of El Nino-La Nina transitions going back to 1960 and found that such transitions occurring in summer raise the risk of corn and soybean yields falling below the trend line. “Yield risk was generally larger the earlier that La Nina conditions emerged,” the economists wrote in Farmdoc Daily March 18. There is no way to predict when a La Nina will arrive, if indeed it does form, but this is something that bears watching. La Nina’s effect on prairie crops appear less studied, but most current long-range forecasts indicate a warm summer with Alberta at risk of dry weather. Looking farther afield, La Nina tends to bring increased rainfall to Australia, southern Asia and India. There is also an increased potential for drier than normal weather in Brazil and Argentina. So even if La Nina arrives too late to affect the North American summer crop, it still could affect the following Southern Hemisphere crops. However, if La Nina fails to develop and there is benign weather, then the disappointing crop values that AgResource expects could be around for a while.

CANFAX REPORT FED MARKET STEADY Sales volumes were too light to establish a weighted average steer or heifer price, but the market tone was steady. Dressed bids and sales were reported from $276-$278 per hundredweight delivered. Many producers are holding back cattle hoping for a spring rally. Slow slaughter rates are backing up cattle. March contract cattle were pushed into April. Interest in the cash market has been mixed with limited local competition. Alberta plants have different inventor y. One plant has scheduled cattle for two week delivery over the past two weeks, while the other is mostly looking for May cattle. A few western Canadian fed cattle traded to the United States with prices working back to the mid$160s on a live basis. More heifers were slaughtered than steers, which is common this time of year. Weekly exports were about 8,000 head, the most since November 2014. Producers are on the tail end of their yearlings, and fed calf volumes will remain light over the next 30 days. Dressed sales in the northern United States were US$212-$216

per cwt., while live sales in the south were $132-$136. Fed supplies in the north are tight, and there is talk that cattle in the south are being shipped into Nebraska.

SLAUGHTER COWS MIXED D1, D2 ranged C$95-$108 to average $101.60, which is steady with the previous week. D3s ranged $80$97 to average $88.13, down $2.25. Rail grade cow prices rose to $197-$202 delivered. Butcher bulls rose $1.32 to $129.92. Weekly western slaughter to April 2 fell nine percent to 5,414 head. Weekly exports to March 26 were steady at 4,914 head.

26,528 head, up 69 percent from the same week last year. The auction volume is down two percent this year at 358,106 head. Feeder exports typically surge in March, and this year it rose to 12,791 head in the week ending March 26. However, that was still down 29 percent from last year at the same time. Exports are down 62 percent for the year. Some auction marketings have been deferred, but volume in coming weeks should moderate following the seasonal trend.

Bred cows ranged $1,600-$2,700, bred heifers were $1,800-$2,650 and cow-calf pairs were $2,003,200.

Priority is not to grow more but grow smarter, cut waste


here is a jarring disconnect in the headlines related to two major themes in global agriculture. One set of headlines tends to run in the news pages, the other in markets. In the former, there are warnings that we are one crop breeding cycle away from global starvation, that a third of the human race is malnourished, that the globe’s population is about to increase by two billion people and that the ravages of climate change will severely test agricultural capacity. The other set of headlines talk about a global surplus of crops that is the largest in 10 years and grain prices falling below the cost of production. Twenty percent of the globe’s population will be obese by 2020, and 30 percent of the food that is produced goes to waste. Dickens’ words “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times,” come to mind. The unbiased observer knows that contradictory trends and realities can exist at the same time. The trick is to understand agriculture’s strengths and weaknesses and develop policies that lead to an environmentally and financially sustainable system capable of producing enough food. And to do that, we must recognize that this is not just an agricultural issue. For the most part, hunger is not caused by shortage of food but by poverty, conflict and poor government. Farmers can usually produce what is needed if the market relationship between them and consumers is not disrupted by government interference and if they have access to modern technology. Indeed, it appears too easy to overproduce in countries with advanced economies and leading edge technology, such

as in North America and Europe. Food is so cheap that it is easy to waste it through such things as culling of less than perfectly shaped fruits and vegetables, excessively large restaurant portions and needless disposal because of misunderstood “best before” dates. The chronic overcapacity to produce corn in North America led to the push to develop the ethanol industry to consume the surplus. Nevertheless, this horn of plenty should not be taken for granted, given an uncertain climate, nor should we forget the resources needed and the environmental impacts. The goal should not be to simply grow more but to grow smarter. Research is needed to develop crops that require fewer inputs of fertilizer and chemicals. Improved and more efficient productivity from existing farmland could allow protection of environmentally sensitive areas. Developing more water efficient crops would ease the pressure on overtaxed aquifers and reduce risks as we face a more volatile climate from global warming. Poor subsistence farmers have different needs than large commercial farmers, but they too would benefit from access to modern technology delivered at an appropriate scale and price. Agriculture policy development should not be misled by apocalyptic warnings, but by the knowledge that when farmers have the right tools and market signals, they will produce the food needed by a growing population.


It’s a difficult industry to get into and the barriers to entry are huge. You need to invest nearly a billion in hard assets to be a player of any consequence in the Canadian grain industry. SHANE PATERSON, CORPORATE DEVELOPMENT OFFICER, PATERSON GLOBAL FOODS, PAGE 24

NDP faces task of finding leader while finding new direction CAPITAL LETTERS



DMONTON — Moments after he was unseated as the leader of the federal NDP, Tom Mulcair pleaded for unity from a room that was anything but. “The only thing that’s important is that we leave here united,” stressed a subdued Mulcair, who earned a measly 48 percent support in a party leadership review. “The person who replaces me must have the absolute and complete support of 100 percent of the members of the NDP.” At the moment, a united NDP appears to be nothing more than a pipe dream. The first sign something was amiss was evident April 8 as dele-

gates arrived at the party’s convention in Edmonton. Organizers had been expecting 700 to 800 members in the weeks leading up to the convention, but there were 1,793 registered delegates by the afternoon of April 9, including 344 from Alberta and 400 union representatives. Few were sporting Mulcair buttons. Rifts were apparent from the beginning as the party grappled with the direction it wanted to go, with many still licking wounds incurred from last fall’s heart wrenching election loss. There was a clear push from party activists to go back to the NDP’s socialist roots and embrace an ideology similar to the likes of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in the United States or Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn in Great Britain. Their ideas included no more pipelines, opposition to “unfair” trade deals such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership and an end to fossil fuel dependency. Meanwhile, Alberta delegates, whose May 2015 election victory toppled 43 years of Conservative

reign, were livid with their federal counterparts’ inability to understand Alberta politics and its current economic climate. The province’s desperate need for a pipeline to tide water to help the more than 60,000 Albertans who have lost their jobs because of the oil crash fell on deaf ears. And despite pleadings from Alberta labour leaders, MLAs and even Premier Rachel Notley, the federal party decided to move ahead with discussions for the next two years on its controversial Leap Manifesto, a document backed by the likes of activists Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis. It calls, among other things, for a dramatic shift toward renewable energy at the expense of fossil fuel. Alberta Federation of Labour president Gil McGowan warned it could turn into “a dangerous political symbol,” going as far as to suggest the manifesto could be interpreted politically as the NDP’s version of the Liberals’ despised National Energy Program of 30 years ago. “The reality is that no one remem-

bers what the NEP actually said, it has become a symbol, and I’m afraid the Leap Manifesto has transformed from a very good, very progressive policy document into a dangerous political symbol that will be viewed by our opponents in this province to beat our political party,” McGowan said before delegates voted. Alberta delegates fear that the manifesto, which will rear up again in 2018, just months before the next provincial election, could cost them unless the party distances itself significantly from their federal colleagues. Talk about being knifed in the back as you lay out the welcome mat. The future of the oil industry wasn’t the only issue that divided delegates. In an unsurprising move, the federal NDP formally entrenched their opposition to the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership, commonly referred to among party faithful as “the job killing TPP.” This, despite pleadings from western delegates who insisted export dependent agriculture,

such as Alberta beef producers and grain farmers, would benefit from the deal. “Alberta cattle producers are significant benefactors of this deal, ” said Jen Anthony, an Alberta delegate. “It allows for a better open market for our product blocked from crossing borders on a number of occasions for reasons that have been unfair to both Alberta and to Canada. “I want to ensure we understand that there are others who need this bill to pass.… We have to accept that this a reality.” T h o s e c o n c e r n s, t o o, w e re ignored, despite one delegate insisting the NDP was the party that could “best stand up for farmers.” The NDP also voted to amend its policy book to strengthen the language around its commitment to supply management and ensuring it is protected under Canadian trade deals. That resolution was backed by Alberta agriculture minister Oneil Carlier. Kelsey Johnson is a reporter with iPolitics,





Municipalities already get ‘fair share’ BY ELLIOT SIMS


he Association of Manitoba Municipalities recently unveiled its “Fair Share, Fair Say” election campaign to push for more and higher taxes. Manitoba’s mayors would have you believe local governments are operating at maximum efficiency and only new revenues from the provincial government can solve their infrastructure deficit. The reality is that municipalities are far richer than they let on, and new tax revenue will continue to fund overly generous municipal wages and benefits rather than infrastructure investment. Municipalities continually complain that they are shortchanged by the tax system and, as a result, receive less revenue than needed to fund their services and infrastructure. To prove their point, local governments claim they collect only eight cents of every tax dollar. However, municipalities conveniently fail to count revenues collected through user fees and grants and transfers from provincial and federal governments. Municipalities receive nearly double what they claim — 15 cents of every tax dollar collected — when these revenue sources are included. The real problem is that many municipal tax dollars are misspent on day-to-day operating expenses, such as wages, that do little to create long-term benefits for communities. In fact, more than $100 million a

More resources could be made for infrastructure if municipal governments brought their wages, work week and pensions in line with the private sector, says the author. | FILE PHOTO year is diverted from infrastructure investment to fund unwarranted operating spending, according to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business. The CFIB’s latest Manitoba Municipal Spending Watch says that inflation-adjusted operating spending in Manitoba’s 26 largest communities grew by 20 percent from 2008-13. This growth rate is nearly three times faster than population growth, which is considered the sustainable spending growth rate by small-business owners. Spending beyond this benchmark cost municipal residents

$606 million over the six-year period. That’s enough cash to build four Waverly underpasses or pave Highway 75 nearly the entire length from Winnipeg to the U.S. border. Far more resources would be available for infrastructure if local governments got their operating spending under control. To get there, municipalities must take a hard look at their labour expenses, which account for 57 percent of their total operating costs. Manitoba municipal workers receive 14 percent more in wages and benefits than people doing the exact same jobs in the private

sector. This advantage occurs through higher wages, shorter work weeks and gold-plated pension plans. However, municipal leaders choose to ignore the issue. Not a single mayor has recently called for the elimination of the municipal pension bridge benefit, which provides up to $60,000 to municipal workers who retire early. Unlike in Ontario, Manitoba’s municipal leadership is not calling for reform of provincial arbitration laws, which are one of the main causes of spiralling municipal wages. Rather than asking the Manitoba government for another handout through a greater share of PST revenues, municipal leaders should be asking the province for a hand up by changing labour laws. A change in these laws could help municipalities bring their labour expenses back to sustainable levels and use more of their existing tax revenues to fight the infrastructure deficit. Unfortunately, AMM’s new election campaign shows Manitoba’s mayors have once again decided to use the infrastructure deficit as an excuse to gain more tax revenue to pay for their unsustainable labour costs. Municipalities already get their fair share. It’s time Manitoba mayors recognize this and get to work.

Carbon pricing should have no exemptions HURSH ON AG



any prairie grain farmers think they should be exempt from any national policy on carbon pricing because they have significantly reduced their carbon emissions over the past 25 years. Unfortunately, there are many problems with this argument. Climate change hysterics are driving the political agenda these days, and that makes carbon pricing an important issue. On the political spectrum, green is the new red. Climate change is a new club for bludgeoning big business. While there seems to be general consensus among scientists that human activities are contributing to climate change, scientists also tell us that the climate has been

continually changing for hundreds of thousands of years. Some warming would seem to be less of a problem than another ice age. Interestingly, world food production continues to increase despite the forecasts of impending disaster. Here in Canada, we could stop fossil fuel production and consumption entirely and huddle together in caves and it wouldn’t make much of a dent in world greenhouse gas production. Still, moving to cleaner energy sources is a commendable initiative, and it’s the direction the world is heading. If we’re going to convince China to curb its massive air pollution, we must also take steps to reduce emissions. One effective tool could be a small carbon tax with the money going to support alternative energy technologies. Lots of people say they want action on climate change, but there’s tremendous resistance to the idea of a new tax. Sorry folks, there’s no free lunch. For the sake of argument, let’s assume a carbon tax of five cents a

litre on gasoline and diesel. I can hear the cries of protest already, but the price often fluctuates that much in a matter of days. A five cent tax wouldn’t cause the sky to fall. However, it would be an incentive to use less fossil fuel, and the money collected could be used for greener technologies, including incentives for best management practices within agriculture. Some form of carbon pricing seems inevitable, and farm organizations are astutely posturing to say that prairie growers of grains, oilseeds and pulses have already done their part. The huge reduction in tillage and summerfallow has sequestered carbon in the soil, and this contribution should make us exempt from any carbon pricing pain, they say. Fuel use has been cut, fertilizer is used more efficiently and we have more diverse crop rotations. That’s mostly true, but the switch to direct seeding and reduced tillage occurred long ago, and cutting carbon emissions wasn’t the main driver. It was economics. If anything, there’s likely to be a bit more tillage in the years ahead to deal

with herbicide resistant weeds and soil compaction issues. Many sectors could argue for exemption. Cars and trucks are more fuel efficient. Low income people can’t afford to pay another tax. Businesses shouldn’t be taxed because they create jobs. It’s best that no one is exempt so we keep the carbon tax as small and simple as possible. Should we leave the oil in the ground as the radical Greens propose? Of course not. What a stupid idea. Should we build pipelines to efficiently and safely carry oil and natural gas to market, particularly within our own country? Of course we should. Should we continue to reduce our carbon emissions while promoting viable alternatives? Yup. And one of the easiest and fairest ways to move in that direction might be a small carbon tax applied without any exemptions. Kevin Hursh is an agricultural journalist, consultant and farmer.

Top prize awarded to WP editorial EDITORIAL NOTEBOOK



he Western Producer’s Barb Glen, who often pens our opinion pieces on page 10, has won top honours in the North American Agricultural Journalists awards for editorial writing. The NAAJ, which formed in 1952 to “promotethehighestidealsofjournalism and agricultural coverage,” comprises agricultural editors and writers in the United States and Canada. The editorial, “Responsible irrigation essential to prevent public backlash,” was published in April 2015. It reminded readers that irrigation is estimated to have a $5 billion impact on Canada’s economy, and given the debate that was underway in California — which was in the midst of a drought — it is important to practise good water use techniques in farming across the Prairies. Barb is a former editor of the Producer, who now runs our Lethbridge bureau. I particularly enjoyed the lead of the editorial, which imparts the flavour of the piece. “Pity the California almond growers who, collectively, have become the whipping boys for the backlash against drought-induced water restrictions in that formerly lush state.” Category judge Jane Schmucker, of the Toledo Blade, said of Barb’s submission: “An easy first-place choice for me. I like how the ‘Responsible Irrigation’ piece, for instance, gives very specific examples — improved nozzles — along with a very wide overview that includes numbers from the United Nations Food and Agriculture.” However, Schmucker wondered about the use of the words “riposte” and “nascent” in Barb’s submissions. Might they be not easily understood by readers? It could be argued that in opinion pieces, more thoughtful analysis occasionally calls for words with deeper meaning than their elementary alternatives. What say you, readers? Do you object to the use of such words in editorials? * * * * Last week, we ran a photo of early seeding in High River, Alta., on the front page.

Readers offer some advice for the Producer

To the Editor:




estern Producer managing editor Michael Raine recently asked our readers to share what they thought about

our paper. Response mostly came in the form of text messages, tweets and emails. Readers generally suggested they enjoy the paper’s content. Many said serves as an important source of information for their farms, mentioning its daily news updates, newsletter, markets newsletter and weekly video analysis by D’Arce McMillan. A reader from Saskatchewan sent this via email: “Put all your recipes and the photos up in one place on the website. Same thing with those on the farm stories and pictures.

And my husband says to do that with the machinery stories, too. We used to clip them out and put them in files. Now we use the website, but it could be better.” A Manitoba reader sent this: “I find the WP to be full of interesting information worth reading. Some of it is pertinent to me. I follow the WP Facebook page, but I don’t use the website.” And this came via Twitter: “Most cattle info anywhere. Markets stories hit the mark. Need more farmer stories from the U.S. and EU. They are like us. We learn from each other.”

This email from Manitoba’s Red River Valley was particularly interesting: “Like machinery stories. We seed corn and soybeans and you are the only ones who cover that equipment and agronomy in depth. Lots of how-to, but need more. Like the little videos. Want more of those about how to run my GPS stuff. How-tos about making maps and using them. Use the (producer. com) because my wife takes the paper away for a couple of days for her or when she wants me to get something done.” Thanks for sharing.

In a recent letter to the editor, Kyle Korneychuk (WP, March 31) is critical of my position about whether port prices should be made public or not. He says farmers need to know port prices so they can compare them to their local elevator prices to see how badly grain companies are gouging them. The whole grain industry (not just farmers) benefits from greater transparency. But comparing the current elevator bids to the current port price cannot be used to conclude how much grain companies are making (or gouging). Grain is bought and sold every day but you can’t conclude that on any given day, a grain company sells at the port the same amount they buy at the elevator. In fact, the grain being bought today may satisfy sales made weeks or months ago at a very different price than today. Korneychuk appears to want grain companies to report actual sales prices. If they did, what if one company had made very high priced sales months ago. And, now that they are buying to satisfy those sales, they have the largest “export basis” (his term, not mine). Korneychuk would say that they are gouging. But what if, even with a large “export basis,” this company has the best price to farmers? Still gouging? Does Korneychuk avoid selling to the company with the largest export basis (biggest gouger), even though it has the best price? Or does he sell to the company with the lowest export basis (smallest gouger), even though they are paying less? The “export basis” has less to do with gouging and more to do with capacity and the demand for that capacity. Korneychuk appears to support using this information to pressure policy makers to regulate the grain system. I disagree. The best way to use this information is for farmers to use it as a market signal and respond accordingly. This doesn’t happen as much as it should or could. Korneychuk and I agree that the market will benefit from improved price transparency. We don’t agree on what information is reasonable and what to do with it. I encourage Korneychuk to contribute to efforts to empower farmers to respond better to market signals through the development of better tools and techniques for farmers. John De Pape Winnipeg, MB.

Farm groups want AgriInvest rules changed Farmers of North America says easing fund withdrawals would help projects such as its proposed nitrogen plant BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Farm groups are pushing for changes in how producers can spend their AgriInvest money. The federal program is designed to help farmers mitigate small income declines and allow for investments to mitigate risk or improve income. However, some farm groups say the way the program is designed actually impedes investment. Farmers of North America was scheduled to meet with federal Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay this week to discuss how the program could be tweaked to facilitate savings and investment. “It kind of has that rainy day fund effect, but it doesn’t really do much to create an incentive for farmers to use it to maximize future revenue,” said Bob Friesen, FNA’s vice-president of government relations. He is a former president of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, which has taken a similar stance on the issue. In a document outlining its policy recommendations for the next agriculture policy framework in 2018, the CFA makes its case for changes to AgriInvest. “The mandatory initial withdrawal of all taxable government contributions limits the capacity for producers to invest in the sector due to producers limiting their withdrawals to those periods that will not result in increased taxation,” states the document. “While this does encourage maintenance of a rainy day fund, these same tax considerations are a barrier to proactive investment of AgriInvest funds.” FNA’s emphasis on AgriInvest comes at a time when it is looking for more farmer dollars that could potentially be invested in its $2.2 billion ProjectN nitrogen fertilizer plant planned for Belle Plaine, Sask., and its related Genesis Grain and Fertilizer distribution super centres. Friesen said there would have to be eligibility requirements for investments, such as projects that have bankable feasibility studies and a minimum number of farmer investors. Eligible projects could include short-line railways, producer car loading sites, farmer-owned grain terminals, processing plants and fertilizer plants. “It could provide a considerable stimulus to agriculture and we believe would fall right within what the federal government is trying to achieve,” he said. Producers can deposit up to one percent of their allowable net sales

into an AgriInvest account annually and receive a matching contribution from federal and provincial governments. AgriInvest accounts have two components: the farmer investment in Fund 1 and the matching g ov e r n m e nt c o nt r i b u t i o n i n Fund 2. Withdrawals are taken from Fund 2 first. Those dollars are taxable upon removal. Only after Fund 2 has been depleted are farmers allowed to withdraw from Fund 1. Those dollars are non-taxable. The idea is that farmers withdraw money in bad years when the taxes would be minimal, but Friesen said

Farmers aren’t going to withdraw AgriInvest money if they have to pay tax on it. BOB FRIESEN FARMERS OF NORTH AMERICA

the program’s structure is a barrier to investment. “Farmers aren’t going to withdraw AgriInvest money if they have to pay tax on it,” he said. FNA estimates that the Fund 1 portion of AgriInvest accounts

contain $900 million, and about 60 percent of that is located in Western Canada. Easing the restrictions on accessing the money in Fund 1 could free up a lot of potential investment dollars for FNA’s fertilizer projects and other similar farmer-driven ventures. Friesen said work is still ongoing on the ProjectN fertilizer plant. “We’re on the verge of submitting a technical project permit,” he said. The Saskatchewan government will review that permit, which includes a site plan, road infrastructure and environmental studies.

“They’ve already assured us that they will turn that around in under 90 days,” said Friesen. Then comes the heavy lifting, which is raising farmer equity, finding a strategic partner and arranging debt financing for the $2.2 billion project. FNA has raised $15.3 million in farmer equity for the first distribution centre in Belle Plaine. The company is finalizing debt financing for that project and has re-tendered the construction contract. “We’re basically ready to put shovel in the ground,” he said.

Consumers drive sustainable ideals BY JEFFREY CARTER FOR THE WESTERN PRODUCER

GUELPH, Ont. — Sustainable corporate strategies may not only be good for the environment and a means to address social issues. They sell. The director of sustainability and shared value with Maple Leaf Foods made the point at the annual conference of the Ontario Institute of Agrologists March 31. Some type of responsible consumption is currently attached to 15 percent of grocery chain retail sales and the sector is growing by nine percent annually, Tim Faveri said. It’s a $120 billion market in the United States and a $400 billion market worldwide. It’s driven by consumers who, increasingly, demand more than platitudes from companies, Faveri said. “Corporate responsibility is not just about being green. It’s about being clear. If a company does not communicate clearly, the consumer will just assume the worse.” Maple Leaf is taking the issue seriously. Faveri said might have simply shifted operations to Mexico but instead has focused on the sustainable investments in the meat protein sector here in Canada, Faveri said. With a governance structure in place to manage sustainable initiatives, Maple Leaf is focusing on four main areas: advancements in nutrition and health; delivering value to people connected to the

company and Canadian communities; animal welfare; and waste reduction. “We have an entire value chain at our disposal where we can work on these issues,” Faveri said. “We have an opportunity to scale and we can have an impact on the entire food chain.” Impacts affecting farmers include the decision to reduce antibiotic use and move 35,000 sows to open house systems by 2017. The images of pigs on the company’s website, incidentally, are without tails, an indication of the company’s commitment to clear messaging, Faveri said. Another commitment is to reduce the company’s environ-

mental footprint in terms of waste, water and emissions by 50 percent in another 10 years. That’s good for the company’s image and bottom line. “This is going to save the company a lot of money. We’ve under taken what’s probably the most comprehensive utility audit in all of Canada,” Faveri said. Many companies are developing their own sustainability plans. Tim Horton’s, for instance, for whom Faveri was previously employed, adopted the slogan, “Making a True Difference.” The slogan for Maple Leaf in Canada is “Feeding the Country, Responsibly.” It includes a website, a governance structure and detailed strategy. Along with the changes in how its meats is raised and processed, there is an emphasis on addressing the needs of “food insecure” Canadians with a focus on the problem’s root causes and charitable donations. One challenge for companies is the term sustainability itself, Faveri said. It means different things to different people. What is known is that a new demographic has emerged — the aspirationals — that is helping to drive sustainability forward. Aspirationals pursue materialism but also demand that their consumption is sustainable in certain respects. In Canada they represent 41 percent of the population but it’s a large demographic globally.

Tiny fruit fly sours Australia’s ag plan Many products are restricted from export over fears that the fruit might contain larvae SYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) — A tiny fruit fly is undermining Australia’s efforts to take advantage of new free trade agreements and expand its $3 billion fruit and vegetable exports. Australia sealed trade agreements with China, Japan and South Korea last year, which guaranteed a significant reduction in tariffs for agriculture produce and were heralded as a catalyst for rapid expansion in exports. The tariff cuts have pushed sales of agriculture produce to all-time highs, but difficulty obtaining biosecurity permits means many fruits cannot be sold into markets such as China. Industry executives say these roadblocks often make free trade agreements meaningless. “Phytosanitary protocol agreements are the biggest hurdle we have to overcome to get our products into markets like China,” said Annie Farrow, industry services manager with Apple and Pear Australia.

Australia’s fruit and vegetable exports make up 10 percent of the country’s $30 billion in agriculture exports, but they are being targeted for rapid growth as the country tries to transition its economy away from a slowing mining sector. Biosecurity hazards pose problems for all agricultural produce in accessing major markets such as China, but horticulture is seeing the greatest obstacles because of the Queensland fruit fly, which is found across Australia’s mainland. Only a handful of products, including citrus and table grapes, can be sold into China. Sales of other fruit such as apples, cherries and oranges to markets such as Japan and South Korea are restricted because of concerns about imports of the pest, whose larvae feed on ripening fruit and cause it to rot. The island state of Tasmania is free from the fruit fly and has signed a raft of agreements with Asia’s largest economies, demonstrating the cost of the pest.

Pressing ag issues in campaign paying off KAP pressured party leaders on the $5,000 limit on farmland rebates on school taxes BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Manitoba’s farm and rural-related organizations were glad they worked so hard to pressure political parties to address their concerns in the provincial election campaign. T h a t ’s b e c a u s e t h e p a r t i e s seemed unwilling to be pinned down on crucial issues, but the organizations forced them to deal with their concerns. “The messaging seems to be getting there,” said Keystone Agricultural Producers president Dan Mazier about its Twitter campaign d raw i n g att e nt i o n t o f a r m e r concerns.“They’re picking off things slowly but surely.”


The Canadian Federation of Independent Business pushed the parties on whether they would abandon the cap on school tax rebates on farmland, and was thrilled to get responses from all the parties on a touchy issue. “That is a big issue for our members who operate agri-businesses,”

said Eliot Sims, the CFIB’s Manitoba director. The overall provincial election campaign focused on mainstream issues with the biggest being NDP premier Greg Selinger’s 2011 broken promise to not raise the sales tax and the NDP saying PC leader Brian Pallister couldn’t be trusted with government services or on social issues. Multiple mistakes by the provincial Liberal campaign derailed its attempts to get voters to notice its novel ideas such as privatizing liquor stores and embracing the Umber taxi system, as well as officially recognizing Louis Riel as Manitoba’s first premier. However, organizations such as KAP pushed their agendas hard. On the Twitter hash tag for the election, #mbelxn, KAP’s policy priorities were visible and prominent. It was probably the most visible industry or interest group campaign other than the Disability Matters campaign, which seemed to become a mass movement of people demanding politicians take disability issues seriously. KAP’s Twitter ads challenged party leaders and politicians to deal with the struggles of young farmers and declining provincial investment with agricultural research and development. It received few direct responses to some questions but heartening attention on others. The PCs said they plan to embrace the Alternative Land Use Services program, which pays farmers for setting aside environmentally sensitive land.

Farm groups pushed for more programs for young farmers to get into the industry. | KAP and CFIB confronted the parties on the $5,000 limit to farmland tax rebates on school taxes, getting a promise from the Green party and the Liberals to scrap the limits. The PCs said they would consider it only after reducing the sales tax, which won’t be for years, and the NDP did not offer to lift the cap. CFIB Manitoba director Eliot Sims said he was happy to see the Greens and Liberals offer to fix a big problem for farmers and was also happy to remind the PCs and NDP about it. “It’s not being taken seriously by all the parties. Some are taking it very seriously,” said Sims. “There is some significant lobbying needed to convince political parties that this is an issue that

needs to be resolved sooner rather than later.” KAP sees its efforts during the campaign as part of a lobbying effort that sets up the next government and legislative sessions. Essentially, it is briefing the parties on issues it wants dealt with. “People are beginning to realize agriculture’s everywhere and we’re getting into that normal, everyday conversation, just like the Disabilities (campaign),” said Mazier. Manitoba Beef Producers president Heinz Reimer said issues such as water management and access to crown land are hot for farmers, but even bigger are the general concerns with Manitoba’s high tax load. Cattle producers feel they pay too much tax and get worried when they seem the provincial govern-


ment’s structural deficits. “A lot of people say government just needs to control its spending,” said Reimer. The campaign became nasty as the election headed into its last days with the NDP launching a series of personal attacks on PC leader Brian Pallister, demanding he reveal his personal tax return and describing him as “homophobic” for objecting to anti-bullying legislation that he said wasn’t fair to religious schools. When the smoke clears after the election ends, Manitoba’s farm, rural and business groups will be hoping that some of their issues are remembered and get on the next government’s agenda.


PCs commit to ALUS in Manitoba election BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

The Progressive Conservative party is promising a new strategy to manage flooding and improve water quality in Manitoba. If they win the April 19 provincial election, the Tories say they will implement an Alternative Land Use Services (ALUS) program across the province, in which landowners are paid to retain or reconstruct natural areas such as wetlands, grasslands and riparian areas near rivers. “There are other provinces in Canada that have already stepped in this direction,” said Dan Mazier, Keystone Agricultural Producers president. “This program was designed for a broad, national approach of mitigating any type of environmental impact…. ALUS is just a good, positive tool for agriculture to use.” The PCs committed to ALUS

April 8, when they released a comprehensive policy platform. ALUS uses an ecosystem services model, which places a monetary value on actions that preserve water quality, sequester carbon, mitigate flooding or protect wildlife habitat. Five communities in Ontario have ALUS programs, and there are also two projects in Saskatchewan, seven in Alberta and one in Manitoba. Prince Edward Island is the only jurisdiction in Canada to have a province-wide ALUS program. “In P.E.I. … 97 percent of the farmers participate,” said Lara Ellis, director of ecosystem markets, business and policy development with ALUS Canada. “A good amount of the funding (for ALUS) comes from existing government programs … at the provincial and federal level…. There is also municipal dollars and philanthropic support.”

Delta Waterfowl and the W. Garfield Weston Foundation are two of the groups that fund ALUS projects in Canada. Some policy-makers and environmental groups have criticized the ecosystem services model. They say farmers shouldn’t be paid for doing the right thing, and the program is unaffordable on a large scale. Ellis said the ongoing cost of payments for activities such as preserving wetlands and riparian areas is much cheaper than spending millions on built infrastructure. ALUS proponents have said the Assiniboine River floods of 2011 and 2014 illustrated the cost of doing nothing. Manitoba and the federal government spent hundreds of millions to build up dikes and reinforce infrastructure along the river during those two floods. “I think we’ve finally come to the point where everybody has real-

I think we’ve finally come to the point where everybody has realized we need to deal with landscape management or we will pay the price. IAN WISHART PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVE MLA

ized we need to deal with landscape management or we will pay the price,” said Ian Wishart, PC MLA for Portage la Prairie who has promoted ALUS for nearly 15 years. “We pay the price on a number of fronts. Flooding is just one. Water quality is another one, habitat loss is the third one and the whole carbon offset is another big factor.” Wishart, former president of KAP, was instrumental in getting ALUS off the ground in Canada. He was the driving force behind the first ALUS project in the country, which was conducted from 2006-08 in the Rural Municipality of Blanshard,

north of Rivers, Man. The NDP said it is now focusing on other approaches for agriculture and environmental outcomes. “We all share the desire for a sustainable industry, and the work we have done together has come a long way since ALUS was first introduced,” an NDP spokesperson said. “The Manitoba NDP believe that productivity, sustainability and environmental protection can all be accomplished by working together and achieving a balanced approach in policy and programming.”





Expert advice valuable in legal dispute

Inspectors determined to keep mussels out


The dogs are on duty at active Alberta border crossings and various lakes. They are looking for invasive zebra and quagga mussels, which cling to boats and other watercraft. The goal is to prevent contamination of Alberta waters. One mussel-fouled boat has already been intercepted at the border crossing near Coutts, Alta., according to Alberta government data. “It is expected that this will be only one of many such incidents during this summer’s boating season,” said an April 6 news release.


GUELPH, Ont. — It’s good to have qualified professionals on your side when trouble comes knocking. Naomi Leowith, a lawyer with the litigation finance company Bentham IMF Ltd. of Toronto, made the point while talking about court cases with members of the Ontario Institute of Agrologists at their annual meeting in Guelph March 31. One case involved a dispute between an organic farmer and a conventional farmer. The former blamed the latter for the loss of organic certification after a field of genetically modified canola was swathed rather than combined directly. The testimony of a professional agrologist made a difference. “The GMO farmer won the case because he had consulted an agrologist who recommended that he swath the field,” Leowith said. “That advice went a long way to insulate that farmer.” Another case concerned an investment in an exotic cattle business. The endeavour flopped, and the farmer sued the financial institution involved. It was discovered that the lender had ignored the advice of its agrologist, who suggested the venture was full of risk. The bank was ordered to pay the farmer. Leowith said full disclosure from agrologists and other professionals is required when there’s a legal action. She also advised farmers and agrologists to document their decisions because it can mean the difference between winning or losing a lawsuit or avoiding the legal exercise completely. “In these days with email, it’s important to send yourself a note,” she said. “Cases are often decided on a single notation made.” Leowith said there’s currently a move within Canadian law to favour the use of expert witnesses. “As an expert witness, you have a duty to the court to provide fair, objective and non-partisan evidence,” she said. “This is not a chance to play Perry Mason.” Leowith defined the term “professional” as someone who belongs to an occupation such as veterinarians, medical practitioners and agrologists. This may be an important point for OIA members who feel certification for agrologists should be mandatory in Ontario, as it is in most other Canadian jurisdictions. “You’re part of a high group of respected professionals who are held to higher standards,” Leowith said. The term professional means there’s a system of self-regulation, which includes admission criteria, codes of conduct and a mandate for members to keep up to date in their area of expertise in a “reasonably prudent” fashion. Professionals can be held accountable through a disciplinary tribunal composed of their peers and civil action.


Motorists pulling water crafts must stop at inspection station or face fines or prison LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Inspections intercepted 11 boats with invasive mussels last year. Provincial law requires that any vehicle carrying “water-based vessels” must report to on-site inspectors if highway signs indicate the inspection station is open. Bypassing the station can result in fines of up to $100,000 or 12 months in prison. Dogs and inspectors examine the watercraft as part of the Aquatic Invasive Species Conservation K-9 team. The program was developed by the province and six southern Alberta irrigation districts. Zebra and quagga mussels have infested large areas of the United

States and Eastern Canada. They are small and multiply quickly, blocking pipes, pumps and water-related infrastructure. They also destroy native aquatic species. Mussels can survive out of water for up to 30 days and are nearly impossible to eradicate once in a water body. “The province estimates that an infestation of invasive mussels in Alberta could cost the province more than $75 million annually, including damage to infrastructure and recreational opportunities,” the release said. Owners and users of watercraft are advised to clean, drain and dry

Pulse crops deliver big benefits on Nagel farm BY ANNEMARIE PEDERSEN FREELANCE WRITER


AVE AND CHERILYN Nagel farm with Dave’s brother, Mike, and his wife, Natalie, near Mossback, Sask. The brothers have lived and worked on the grain farm all their lives and grow durum wheat, canola, Kabuli chickpeas and large green lentils. The Nagel family added pulses to the rotation about 15 years ago. It was challenging to make a profit with any of their other crops, primarily durum wheat, malt barley and some yellow mustard. “This was especially true at the time when the wheat board was controlling our cereals — our primary crops,” said Dave Nagel. “We were really having trouble making a profit in the early 2000s.” They decided to try pulses to generate cash flow and profit. They chose Kabuli chickpeas and large green lentils, as they tend to be two of the more drought-tolerant pulses. They would fit nicely with the weather conditions often found in the Mossbank area. Even in the exceptionally dry summer of 2015, they did just fine. “The yields were down maybe 25 percent, but we still did quite well. These two crops are usually the most vulnerable to grading issues, but we had great quality last year. “Pulses have primarily been our biggest money-maker on our farm. We also found since we started put-

ting pulses in our rotation, our yields in our other crops, both durum and canola, have come up as well.” A common theme when talking to pulse growers is the concern over disease in their crops. Dave Nagel has found this a challenge too. They are managing it with a three-year crop rotation: growing durum, then a pulse crop, followed by canola, and then durum back on the canola. “This has helped with disease management. We introduced fungicides into our program a lot more heavily. It’s important to be aware of the groups of fungicides and applying them in a rotation so we don’t come up with resistance.” Concerns from the outside world Another concern is Canadian pulse growers’ complete reliance on export markets and the impact world events can have on the Canadian market. “We do have a domestic market and it’s growing, but I w o u l d re a l l y l i k e t o s e e t hat increase some more to mitigate some of that risk,” said Nagel. The primary markets for the Nagel’s crops are South America for the lentils and India, Pakistan and increasingly Europe for the chickpeas. Another major concern for Nagel is the loss of consumer confidence in production practices. “There’s a definite disconnect with how the

For the past 15 years, pulse crops have been an integral part of the Nagel farm. Mike and Natalie Nagel with their children, Jack and William (left) farm with Cherilyn and Dave Nagel and their two girls, Claire and Addison (right) near Mossbank, Sask. | SILVER BLUE PHOTOGRAPHY PHOTO consumer feels about our practices and if they’re actually safe or not. We are not growing a ‘Frankencrop’. I think we need to demonstrate that we are producing safe, healthy food.” The commitment to doing more to tell agriculture’s story runs in the family. Nagel said his wife and partner, Cherilyn, calls herself an active “levy payer” and attends various industry meetings on behalf of their farm business. As well, she is very involved in her work with Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan as an advocate trainer for the agriculture industry. Speaking with Nagel, it becomes clear that farming and growing pulses is more than just a profitable business for him and his family. “It’s a great feeling to be part of agriculture because it is such a major contributor to the economy, especially in rural areas. We are quite proud to be employing people on our farm and to be part of the agriculture value chain.” Nagel’s pride in the many levels of the agricultural industry based in Saskatchewan is evident. They are actively supporting the supply

chain on their farm including machinery manufacturers and dealers, input suppliers and even the fertilizer being produced in Saskatchewan “When we’re farming, we’re supporting all these companies along the value chain, even the energy industry,” says Nagel. “It’s nice to have that money stay in rural areas because I feel without agriculture those communities would disappear.” The road ahead

When asked what he sees in the future, Nagel’s wish list is clear. “I hope to see an increase to domestic demand in this International Year of Pulses and an increased awareness of pulses as a great source of protein in everyone’s diet.” Going forward Nagel sees a need for a greater investment in research into new varieties as well increased processing capacity. “We have had, especially in lentils, a huge increase in production. Take a look back at canola as an example — if pulse acres are going to continue to expand, like canola

did, the processing has to come up like it did with canola,” said Nagel. The Nagels do a lot of on-farm cleaning, which allows them to ask a premium on their contracts and ship out clean grain. While they have delivery options within about an hour of their farm, Nagel sees an ongoing issue. “In a year with high prices and the acres that are going in, one of the bottlenecks is going to be capacity to process.” However, there is a lot to be proud of. “What I’m most proud of is the improvement in our land. It has been a really good outcome with the implementation of pulses in our crop rotations. We’re seeing such an improvement in our land and it’s going to be a great way to leave it for the next generation.” Growing pulse crops has created a sustainable business for the Nagel family. It has provided economic and environmental sustainability for the farm and created a promising future for the next generation. This is the final part of a three-part sponsored content series profiling pulse growers in Canada.

Women share challenges, triumphs Conference brings together women in agriculture to build leadership, communications and marketing skills



Distances separate rural women, but coming together shows them that they are not so far apart after all. For the last three years, Iris Meck has invited rural women to attend a two day conference called Advancing in Women in Agriculture. Women older than 19 from across Canada gather at conferences in Calgary and Toronto to share stories and experiences in the world or agriculture. “How much better can you get when you bring a group of women of different ages, different cultures, different experiences, different levels of management, different levels of career and have them all share their stories,” Meck said. The Manitoba farm girl’s career saw her move from a job in Saskatchewan to Calgary, where 17 years ago she started her own communications and marketing firm co-ordinating conferences, workshops and forums. Her dream was to do something for women to build leadership skills based on four principles: • how to build a career • learn financial management and


independence • maintain health and the balance of life • develop ability to communicate stories but also learn with mentoring, coaching and networking “I don’t think women use mentoring and coaching and networking enough to fulfill their own experiences. It is not just shaking your hand and saying goodbye, it’s keeping up that relationship and having a reason to go back and ask that question,” she said. Through her business, Iris Meck Communications, she found sponsors to bring 35 young women from western universities and colleges to the conference. She also hopes to link her international volunteer work to sponsorship for women from oth-

er countries so they can attend. She is involved with a foundation in Peru that supports a sewing school to teach women how to start their own businesses, sew for their families or get jobs in nearby Lima. The group also supports a farm and worked with people to clear land and grow potatoes and root vegetables to sell or feed their families. Meck also sponsors five to eight female university students from Africa to attend events and conferences, including an international biotechnology conference. “I would love to bring them up here and we are working towards that.” However, it is expensive. “There are so many things I want to do with advancing women, but it takes resources,” she said. Women from across Canada and five American states attended this year’s conference to hear examples of how they can advance in agriculture. There were common threads of dealing with disappointments, setbacks and conflicts but also the satisfaction of success. One of the women was Natasha Vandenhurk, part owner and chief executive officer of Three Farmers, a Saskatchewan company that


sells camelina oil and chickpea products. She came into the business at age 24 with a degree in economics and little experience. “The economics degree might have challenged my math skills on a daily basis; it did nothing in honing my skills in forecasting, financial statement analysis, cash flow management or drumming up dollars,” she said. Her real education was about to begin. The business grew from selling a few bottles of oil at farmers markets to filling container loads. She worked around the clock trying to raise a baby, run a company and salvage a marriage. “If I hadn’t had my sister as a partner, the outcome wouldn’t

have been as favourable,” she said. Life was chaotic and demanding and she is still learning to strike a balance. “Balance is a lovely thought, but I think there are times in life where there is no balance,” she said. There were disappointments but victories as well, and she learned to see the silver lining in the clouds. “I am like every other mother out there. I am overtired, overworked but overjoyed,” she said. Having a family and a company is stressful, but millions of other women cope with the same challenges of work and family. “This is what we do as women. We solve problems that often seem unsolvable,” she said. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

Jessica Wright looked extremely relaxed for a seven-year-old as she rode a horse around the ring at the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair in Brandon. She smoothly steered the horse, Bullseye, around barrels, and he trotted, jumped and stopped on command. Meanwhile, Jessica’s mother, Susan Wright, who was also inside the ring, didn’t seem concerned about her daughter’s safety. She didn’t have to worry about a potential fall because Bullseye is less than a metre tall. Wright, who lives near Rapid City, Man., owns five miniature horses similar in size to Bullseye. She also has regular-size horses for the larger members of her family. “We have both, but I like the miniature horses for the kids,” said Wright, who has raised miniatures for 15 years. “If the kids go out with them, I know they’re safe … compared to the riding horses.” The Wrights were part of a group of volunteers at the Winter Fair promoting the small horses and the Manitoba Miniature Horse Club.

Also speaking at the conference was Jennifer Christie, part of John Deere’s marketing strategy team and a driving force behind the Ontario-based Ag Women’s Network. She learned to pay her dues and promote herself when she saw opportunities appear in her own career. “I believe there is some work that has to be done ahead of time before you can ask for those opportunities,” she said. She understood hard work from growing up on a grain and dairy farm in Ontario. Working for John Deere, she

“We had over 50 families in our club last year,” said Heather Hart, who has 45 registered miniatures with her husband, Rod, near Carman, Man. “Our club has been existence for about 20 years, and this is the highest membership we’ve ever had. We have a lot of youth … between 30 and 40 youth members.” Miniature horses have become popular as older people and families with young children seek a fun and safe activity. “People like us, who used to have horses, really don’t want to take the risk of falling off anymore…. (Or) some people will have them for a companion (animal),” said Hart, who runs Meadowind Miniatures and is secretary of the Manitoba club. The Harts don’t ride their miniature horses because they can support only a 30 kilogram child. Their passion is driving horses, and Hart said a miniature horse can pull two adults in a cart for about 15 kilometres. The miniature horses on display at the Winter Fair were definitely a hit because of how cute they are. Many visitors stopped to oohh and ahhh, particularly at the yearlings, which were only 50 centiattended farm shows for two years, where she did everything from polishing tractor windows to meeting the public and picking up garbage after the event. She admitted she had to develop a positive attitude, and when a manager was not interested in her ideas to work with dealers, she stepped back and decided not to let setbacks drive her off course. A new manager eventually listened to her ideas about marketing strategies and she is now the only person in North America working as a dealer development manager. Before that, she was a territory sales manager in Ontario. “You can have the work ethic, you can have the right attitude, you can figure out the opportunity and pitch that, and you still may not

MINIATURE HORSE FACTS: • Miniature horses are not a breed. They can be registered as a miniature horse if they are less than 34 inches tall. There is also the “B” class of miniature horses, which must be shorter than 38 inches. • The popular belief is that today’s miniatures descended from horses that worked in mines. They also draw upon the genetics of Shetland ponies. • Miniature horses can be used as service animals. Their intelligence and gentle nature make them ideal guide animals for the blind. Source:

metres high. In addition to their charm and safety, miniatures are also cheaper to feed than a typical horse. “Where a big horse would go through a bale (of hay) in a day and a half, a bale will do a little horse for a whole week,” Wright said. “A round bale will last a miniature horse all winter.” have the right manager in your court to make it happen,” she said.

The group was developed for women in Ontario, but membership has spread nationally. They recently launched a new website that welcomes all women at

I have just got over a cold and I am still coughing several weeks later. This seems to happen every time I get a cold, which fortunately is not often. Maybe one a year. I have tried everything from cough mixtures and cough candies to antibiotics and nasal sprays. Nothing seems to make much difference.

When a person catches a cold, the virus causes the airways, sinuses and nasal passages to become inflamed, swollen and overly sensitive. The sneezing, runny and stuffy nose and sore throat may improve in just a few days, but often the cough persists for far longer. It can be for as long as a month or occasionally six weeks. This may lead the sufferer or their doctor to think that there may be a secondary infection such as bronchitis or sinusitis and prescribe antibiotics and/or nasal sprays and inhalers. Most often, it is simply the lingering effects of the cold virus itself, and this is why the medications may make no difference in your case. Try not to overuse over-thecounter nasal sprays. They should not be used for more than three consecutive days or there will be rebound withdrawal symptoms of nasal congestion and postnasal drip, which leads to coughing. Too much exposure to dry air or air conditioning may also irritate your nose and airways. Dry air is commonest in winter months when colds are also more likely to occur. In some instances there may be an underlying health problem such as asthma or bronchitis that is triggered by the cold, and this may require appropriate medical treatment. Some people only get asthma attacks associated with a cold, and do not seem to have problems at any other time. A chronic cough is the main symptom. Not everyone with asthma wheezes. Lung function tests can help to determine if you have asthma. There are some other illnesses that can cause a long-term cough. These include digestive disorders such as acid reflux and obstructive sleep apnoea. Some medications known as ACE inhibitors, such as Vasotec (Enalopril), used for treating high blood pressure will often have the side effect of giving the patient a chronic dry “ahem” type of cough. Bacterial sinusitis may occur after a cold, as the sinus membranes are left in a vulnerable state by the cold viruses. There are generally other symptoms, which will help the doctor diagnose the condition, such as facial pain and sometimes fever. Antibiotics may be prescribed.

Recovery Strategy for the Chestnut-collared Longspur (Calcarius ornatus) in Canada


Programme de rétablissement du Bruant à ventre noir (Calcarius ornatus) au Canada

Environment and Climate Change Canada is seeking public comment on a proposed Recovery Strategy for the Chestnut-collared Longspur, as required under the federal Species at Risk Act.

Environnement et Changement climatique Canada sollicite l’opinion du public sur le programme de rétablissement proposé pour le Bruant à ventre noir, comme l’exige la Loi sur les espèces en péril du gouvernement fédéral.

The Chestnut-collared Longspur is a small ground-nesting songbird listed as “Threatened” under the Species at Risk Act. It is found in grazed mixed-grass prairie parcels larger than 39 hectares in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta during the breeding season (around May– August).

Le Bruant à ventre noir est un petit oiseau chanteur nichant au sol qui est inscrit parmi les espèces « menacées » en vertu de la Loi sur les espèces en péril. Il est observé dans les prairies à graminées mixtes pâturées de plus de 39 hectares au Manitoba, en Saskatchewan et en Alberta pendant la saison de reproduction (~ mai à août).

The proposed Recovery Strategy outlines steps to conserve the Chestnut-collared Longspur, and it partially identifies areas of critical habitat important for the species’ recovery. Critical habitat for this species consists of breeding habitat in mixed grasslands in southwestern Saskatchewan.

Le programme de rétablissement proposé décrit les mesures qui seront prises pour conserver le Bruant à ventre noir et désigne en partie les aires d’habitat essentiel importantes pour le rétablissement de l’espèce. L’habitat essentiel de cette espèce est l’habitat de reproduction dans les prairies mixtes du sud-ouest de la Saskatchewan.

You are invited to comment on the proposed Recovery Strategy for the Chestnut-collared Longspur and get involved in its recovery. View the strategy and provide your comments online at (click on link in “New Publications & Reports” section).

“The highest growing group last year was science and technology clubs (within 4-H),” Jarvis said. Robins was initially skeptical about science projects as part of 4-H, partly because he used to work as a beef and forage researcher with Agriculture Canada. “But I was thinking too high of a level. I forgot how much fun science can be in Grade 4, 5 and 6.” 4-H Canada held its inaugural science fair in Nova Scotia in March. It is separate from school science fairs but also provides a pathway to the national competition.

The three winning projects from the 4-H science fair will now participate at the Canada-Wide Science Festival in Montreal this May. As well, 4-H has started a leadership excellence of distinction program, which connects members with a mentor in their field of interest. “We had a winner for science and technology and she was matched with a mentor, Natalie Panek. She’s an incredible woman in the science and technology…. She’s a rocket scientist,” Jarvis said. “It’s (about) creating those link-

ages with the science and technology field.” 4-H numbers in Manitoba may be on the rise after decades of decline. “Our (4-H membership) has leveled out, and in the last couple years we’ve seen a little bit of an increase in membership numbers,” Robins said. 4-H Canada is still collecting membership figures from provincial organizations and should have national numbers by the second week of April.

Most Canadians don’t associate 4-H with science experiments, but science and technology is now one of the cornerstones of the youth organization. “Science and technology is one of the four pillars of the 4-H program nationally now,” said Clayton Robins, executive director of 4-H Manitoba. “Science is in everything we do, we just don’t realize it.” Elizabeth Jarvis, marketing and communications director with 4-H Canada, said the decision to emphasize science in club activities and individual projects is paying off.

I will be only 52 years old this September. But in many ways I think that I have done it all. My wife and I have been married for 28 years. We took over the family farm and with careful planning and hard work, we have managed turn it into a profitable venture. Both of our boys are grown. One is in third year agriculture at university, the other is working for Agriculture Canada. I expect both of them will eventually make their way back to the farm once I have decided to retire. If they do, what am I to do? Where do I go from here? I know that I could keep on farming and build the farm bigger than it is now, but I am not motivated to do that. Neither is my wife. She loves driving tractor and both of us enjoy our morning coffee when the weather is good and we can sit out on the deck to watch the day unfold. But, like me, my wife is wondering, what now? What do you think?

Midlife involves finding activities that make you feel satisfied at the end of the day


You certainly have an interesting dilemma. You are too young to pack it in and spend the next 40 years sitting around coffee row. At the same time, I can understand that keeping things going on the farm is getting to be more labourious than rewarding. I recommend you check the internet for articles on mid-life crisis. I am not sure that midlife constitutes a crisis, but it is clearly a time for reflection and that is obviously what you and your wife need to do. In fact, this can be an interesting time. Midlife is a time in life to look beyond the fence and wonder at what path to follow. Of course to do that, you need to have an open mind. Many politicians do not get into the electoral process until they are about your age and are wondering,

as you are, if they could not be contributing to their communities in other ways. Some of the better salespeople are guys who have stopped working their farms and are now using their years of experience to help them get what their clients need to successfully build their own farms. Some teach at the community college, others get involved in international projects, while some choose to stay on the land. You and your wife need to take time and re-invent yourselves as people. It is time to figure out what is important to you and where you want to investment your time and energy. That is the healthy thing to do. Better still, that is the fun thing to do.

About half the 400-head cow herd had calved by early April, and the cows with their babies were busy grazing native grass on the 4,400 acre spread. Another 300 yearlings also make use of the grazing system, but some of those will spend part of the season at the nearby Waldron Grazing Co-operative. VXV Farms won Alberta Beef Producers’ annual Environmental Stewardship Award this year for its system of rotational grazing, riparian area protection and side businesses involving recycled materials. Gerald and Jack make stock water troughs from old tractor tires and fibreglass fence posts from oilfield sucker rod. Gerald said it has taken cattle ranchers years to figure out the best use of available grass, and there is still more to learn. “My grandpa liked equipment and he liked feeding hay, so he probably thought we were doing good,” said Gerald. But now the Vandervalks make no hay, instead using a system of rotational grazing and judicious use of tame and native pasture. “O ne of the things that has changed in our operation in the last five years for sure is the amount of electric fencing we’re doing,” he said. “A field that’s a section and half big, I don’t feel the cows can utilize the grass effectively. They pick their favourite spots and they camp there. With the electric fence, we’re forcing them to eat some of the less desirable stuff, and the desirable stuff does not get camped on. Our grazing patterns have changed drastically.” Gerald remembers making a lot of hay on the ranch as a youngster.

The family has been in this spot since 1956. “We would make hay all summer and the cows would graze the native grass all summer and then all winter we would haul it out,” he said. “That’s been a big change in the last few years, where now we make hardly any hay. If we have to, we’ll buy hay.” The Beefbooster cattle seem to get what they need by grazing tame hay fields two or three times per season and then grazing native pasture in fall and early winter.


THE VANDERVALK FAMILY Claresholm, Alta. “That’s what’s really good about this area, is all of our native grass. It cures on the stem and it holds its value.” Jack and Merry feed the cattle in the morning, or have been doing so lately while the land wakes up to spring and starts producing new grass shoots. Jack, 77, is fully involved in the operation but now has the freedom to travel when the mood strikes. “My father, he’s really hands on,” Gerald said. “He doesn’t really worry about the marketing. He doesn’t worry about, say, branding or anything like that, but he likes to do projects, so he’s always involved. “His help is greatly appreciated, but if he wants to go away, we’ll figure something out. And when he’s home, we do extra projects that we can’t do when he’s gone. I think it works really well for both of us ” Gerald and Patricia have four children: Ryan, 20, Joel, 18, Danielle, 15 and Nathan, 13. They met when both were attending the University of Alberta, where

Gerald obtained a bachelor of science degree in agriculture and Patricia became a veterinarian. “I would say it has come in handy,” said Pat about her veterinary expertise. “But Gerald has a lot of experience after being on the farm for this many years, so he actually is a better vet with large animals than I am.” Pat has home-schooled the children for the last while, which has allowed her and the kids to be more involved in day-to-day operations. However, she isn’t sure if the kids will take over the farm, nor is it a concern for her and Gerald. “You never know. We give our kids the freedom to make those decisions,” she said. “I think we’ve tried to teach them that (work is) their responsibility, and what they have off-farm is because of the farm. All of them do work, whether it’s making fibreglass fence posts or going tagging with Gerald or fencing or processing cows.” Gerald is president of the Waldron Grazing Co-operative and has also been involved with the Lyndon Creek Conservation Group, which represents area ranchers who have undertaken riparian protection projects. Despite all that, Gerald describes himself as “ambitiously lazy. Someday I’m going to become lazy, but that hasn’t happened yet.” The water trough business at VXV Farms fits nicely into that conservation theme. The Vandervalks buy old mine tires, cut out one sidewall and fit them with pipes and a frame cast in cement for easing moving. Their fence posts are made from sucker rod with the ends sharpened for easy installation. “It’s probably been 15 years since we’ve bought a bundle of wood posts,” said Gerald. The sidewalls have been used to build a wind fence that shelters the cattle. “Nobody’s ever counted, but there’s probably over 1,000 sidewalls in there. It makes a good wind fence and it’s a little bit rough so they like to scratch on it.” ABP made a video of the Vandervalk operation as part of the envi-

GRAIN HANDLING: a growth industry? Nearly $3 billion has been committed or invested in the western Canadian grain handling sector over the past three to four years. Is the playing field full? | BY BRIAN CROSS, SASKATOON NEWSROOM

OMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL companies have invested billions of dollars in the western Canadian grain handling industry over the past three to four years. It’s a capital outlay that will solidify Western Canada’s reputation as home to one of the most efficient and modern grain handling systems in the world. However, according to some observers, the new investments also raise questions about whether the system is becoming overbuilt. New entrants are spending aggressively to establish a position in the Canadian market, and industry observers suggest the current phase of capital investment could be followed by a period of consolidation. The financial viability of new entrants — most notably those without assured port access — has yet to be determined. “I believe it (Western Canada) is a very competitive environment, and I believe the open market has made it even more competitive,” said Darwin Sobkow, executive vice-president of agribusiness operations and processing at Richardson International. “I don’t believe there’s anyone looking to exit so I think the others … (have determined) that the only way to get into the system is to build.” An informal survey suggests that $3 billion has been either committed or invested in the western Canadian grain handling sector over the past three to four years, which coincides roughly with the elimination of single desk marketing. Those investments include new elevators, expansions, upgrades and acquisitions. The number does not include a major 2012 deal that saw Glencore

PLC buy Viterra’s global assets for more than $6 billion. Newcomers to the Canadian market • G3 CANADA, a joint venture between Bunge Canada and the Saudi Agriculture and Livestock Investment Co., which acquired a 50.1 percent ownership stake in former CWB assets for $250 million. As part of the CWB purchase, G3 Canada acquired the assets of two farmer owned terminals in Saskatchewan — Prairie West Terminal and Great Sandhills — as well as four new concrete elevators at Colonsay Sask., Pasqua, Sask., Ste. Adolphe, Man., and Bloom, Man., all of which were commissioned by CWB after its single desk marketing authority was ended in mid-2012. G3 is also building a $60 million transfer terminal at Hamilton, Ont., and is planning a new $500 to $600 million export terminal in Vancouver. It also plans to add as many as 10 high-throughput concrete elevators in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Announcements are expected shortly, company officials said. • GRAINSCONNECT CANADA, a joint venture between Australia’s GrainCorp and Japanese agricultural co-operative Zen-Noh Grain, which announced plans last year to build four highthroughput elevators in Western Canada at a total cost of $120 million. Construction on the first of those facilities near Red Deer is slated to begin this year. • BROAD GRAIN COMMODITIES, a Canadian export company that recently announced plans to build a $25 million grain terminal and bean processing plant at

CentrePort Canada, an export and logistics park in Winnipeg. BroadGrain, based in Toronto, also acquired Lakeside Global Grain in Dafoe, Sask., in 2011. • CERES GLOBAL AG, a Torontobased company that is building a $90 million grain terminal and transportation hub at Northgate, Sask. Ceres also has owns shortline railways in southern Saskatchewan and grain handling facilities in the United States. • HANFOOD GROUP HOLDING CORP., which announced plans last year to build a $20 million grain and oilseed collection facility at Nipawin, Sask., complete with a 134-car loop track. • SCOULAR, an American grain handling giant that recently bought Winnipeg-based Legumex Walker for $100 million. Scoular was initially named as a partner in the Ceres Global Ag facility at Northgate, but Ceres later announced it would proceed without Scoular.


OBKOW SAID established companies have been solidifying their competitive positions since the end of single desk selling. The elimination of the CWB and Glencore’s purchase of Viterra kick-started a process that saw a number of western Canadian facilities change hands. Shortly after the Glencore-Viterra deal was finalized, Richardson spent $800 million to buy 19 former Viterra facilities, including five primary elevators in Alberta, 10 in Saskatchewan, two in Manitoba and two in British Columbia.

Since then, it has announced additional investments valued at more than half a billion dollars, said Sobkow. Those investments include a new concrete elevator construction project at Dauphin, Man., major upgrades to the company’s facilities at Estevan, Sask., a $120 million expansion of Richardson’s west coast export terminal in Vancouver, upgrades to export facilities in Thunder Bay and steel storage expansions at Richardson elevators. “Even if you don’t include our 2013 acquisition of Viterra, we’ve invested between $500 and $600 million in the last four years,” said Sobkow. Investments by other established Canadian line companies also tally in the hundreds of millions. Viterra announced plans in 2014 to spend $100 million on improvements to its Pacific Terminal in Vancouver and $20 million on upgrades to its existing elevators in Saskatchewan. It also bought the Lethbridge

Inland Terminal and is building new high-throughput concrete elevators at Kindersley, Sask., Grimshaw, Alta., and Ste. Agathe, Man. The estimated cost to build a modern concrete elevator is generally assumed to be $35 to $45 million. Paterson Global Foods has also weighed in with plans to build new loop track facilities at Daysland, Alta., and Bowden, Alta. Those projects come close on the heels of Paterson’s new facility at Gleichen, Alta., which opened in 2012. Shane Paterson, corporate development officer, said the company would normally plan a new elevator every two to three years, but solid grain handling returns during the past few years have prompted it to increase its pace of reinvestment and network renewal. Paterson said recent network investments by established Canadian grain companies will make it difficult for new entrants to maintain handling margins and extract significant profits from the industry.

OUR HISTORY... horse-drawn delivery 25,000 bushel storage capacity


ANY OF THE investment announcements made by new entrants came at a time when the Canadian grain handling industry was enjoying record profit margins and sourcing record amounts of grain. Those two factors likely influenced the investment decisions of newcomers, who will be competing against a handful of large, wellestablished companies. “In my view, a lot of people would like to point to the end of (single desk selling) as sort of a fundamental change in the grain handling industr y … that ’s resulted in increased investment in Canadian agriculture,” Paterson said. “I think that’s somewhat of a misconception. What I think we had was a confluence of supply and demand events. “ We h a d t w o o f t h e l a r g e s t crops in Canadian history (in 2014 and 2015) and that was coupled with market uncertainty in places like Russia, Ukraine

and Syria. The result was that margins were at really historic highs for grain handlers and for agricultural producers, but that ride can’t last forever.” Paterson said that a return to more typical handling margins could prompt new entrants to reassess their investment plans. “I think there will be a difficult learning curve for some of the new entrants,” he said. “It’s a difficult industry to get into and the barriers to entry are huge. You need to invest nearly a billion in hard assets to be a player of any consequence in the Canadian grain industry.” G3 Canada fits that description. It has been following an aggressive growth strategy based on modern facilities that will set a new standard for throughput efficiency. Chief executive officer Karl Gerrand agreed that newcomers to the Canadian industry will face stiff competition, but he argued that G3’s position is unlike that of other new players.

The company is already well positioned to handle eastbound grain by virtue of its export facilities in Thunder Bay, Hamilton, and Quebec. It also plans to solidify its position in the western Prairies by adding 10 new facilities in Saskatchewan and Alberta. The result will be a modern origination network that consists of 18 prairie elevators, most of which have state-of-the-art loop track loading systems and high speed load-out capabilities. “We’re looking for a nine to 10 time turn per year so at some of our new facilities, we’re looking to turn 300,000 tonnes up to perhaps 400,000 or 450,000 tonnes per year,” Gerrand said. “I’ll be the first to admit that Richardson and Viterra and Cargill have a very strong position in the market but I think there’s room for another player.” FOR RELATED STORIES, SEE PAGE 77

Western Producer reporter Barbara Duckworth attended the National Institute of Animal Agriculture’s annual meeting in Kansas City, Missouri, and filed these stories about last year’s avian flu outbreak in the United States. DISEASE MANAGEMENT

Crisis sparks biosecurity assessment In wake of the avian flu pandemic last year, a U.S. expert examines failures in disease management and possible solutions BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Biosecurity breaches probably caused one of the worst animal disease crises in the United States. Fast moving outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza in 21 states resulted in the destruction of 50 million turkeys and chickens last year. More cases affecting 400,000 birds were reported in Indiana at the beginning of this year. The rapid spread of the disease showed increased vulnerability in the animal population, said John Clifford, chief trade adviser for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. As well, porcine epidemic diarrhea and porcine delta corona virus had previously entered the U.S., killing millions of pigs. The viral roots of these deadly diseases are in Asia, but no one is sure how they got to North America, Clifford said at the National Institute of Animal Agriculture’s April 3-7 annual meeting in Kansas City. “Did we have good biosecurity? I don’t think so,” Clifford said. “If we don’t have good biosecurity and we don’t have good traceability in all sectors of the livestock population, we are vulnerable to these types of events.”

Biosecurity and disease management plans need to be updated regularly to deal with known and future issues. Biosecurity is expensive and inconvenient, said James Roth, director of Iowa State University’s Center for Food Security and Public Health. Food secure plans have been in the works since 2007 to detect, control and contain a foreign animal disease as soon as possible. The intention is to avoid interruptions in animal movement from farms with no evidence of infection and provide consumers with safe eggs, milk, poultry, beef and pork. Government, universities and commodity groups test the plans and regularly update them to figure out how to establish quarantine zones and control movement. Biosecurity is essential to the success of these plans. “Everyone has to have confidence that producers have sufficient biosecurity to protect their herds or flocks from becoming infected,” Roth said. Outbreaks of porcine epidemic diarrhea and Seneca Valley virus in pigs and avian influenza in poultry have shaken public confidence in farmers’ ability to keep out serious diseases. In the case of avian influenza, many feared that backyard flocks would present the greatest risk because they could be exposed to

Biosecurity measures were called into question after avian influenza wreaked havoc in the United States last year. | USDA PHOTO wild birds and other contaminants. However, most of the outbreaks were on large commercial farms with millions of birds in one facility. “There was something about the biosecurity of those commercial sites that had a really big vulnerability,” Roth said.


Producers have realized their biosecurity deficiencies the hard way. “A routine level of biosecurity is not sufficient to protect from a newly introduced, highly contagious disease,” he said. The recent outbreaks have shown that the original biosecurity plans were based on current best practices and did not account for the

increased rigour needed for a new contagion. “Biosecurity only works if everyone on the production site understands the importance of biosecurity and follows it all the time,” he said. Epidemiology investigations of infected sites checked weather conditions to see if the virus was carried on the wind, but there was no evidence of that, said Brian McCluskey of APHIS. Commitment to biosecurity plans likely had more to do with disease spread. “It is difficult to prove which biosecurity practices work best to keep out serious disease,” he said. A research project that evaluated 81 infected turkey farms in five Midwest states for biosecurity found that most farm sites were free of debris and trash. Workers wore rubber boots, and most had coveralls to be worn exclusively in the barn. Less than half washed and sprayed vehicles, even though rendering and garbage trucks were more likely to be infected. Less than half monitored farm visitors or asked them to change clothes.

Less than half of the affected farms did biosecurity audits of any kind. Almost all shared expensive farm equipment. Most said their poultry houses were bird proof, but investigators routinely saw sparrows and starlings on site. Other risks included disposing of dead birds within 30 metres of the barns. Proximity to dead bird disposal and litter compost areas are proven risk factors. This practice was seen during this outbreak and needs to be addressed, said McCluskey. Biosecurity and the practice of maintaining hazard analysis critical control points programs have a lot in common. Identifying hazards at every site and figuring out controls is something producers can do on their own. The USDA posted a voluntary biosecurity self-assessment checklist in September that included 12 points to monitor. Biosecurity training material for the poultry industry was published in English and Spanish. The same approach is coming for dairy, beef and pork.


A colossal task: destroying 7.3 million birds Egg laying company hit with avian influenza recounts the emotional and physical challenges of euthanizing birds BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Thousands of dead chickens packed into metal containers is a disturbing image, but there was often no other choice for producers caught in the maelstrom of an avian influenza outbreak. Mark Van Oort, complex manager for Center Fresh Farm Eggs in Sioux Center, Iowa and its sister operation, Sioux County Egg Farm,

recently talked about how the company handled a deadly outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza a year ago. “Everything was hard. It was emotionally tiring, it was physically tiring. Everything was very hard,” he said during the National Institute for Animal Agriculture’s annual meeting in Kansas City. The egg laying company eventually lost 7.3 million birds and will not be fully operational until the end of this year.

As we grow our farms and everything gets bigger and better, we have to grow our crisis management strategies with that. MARK VAN OORT, CENTER FRESH FARM EGGS

“A s w e g ro w o u r f a r m s a n d everything gets bigger and better, we have to grow our crisis management strategies with that,” he said. The operation included layer

barns and pullet raising facilities. There are 120 employees at Center Fresh Farm Eggs and another 40 at the Sioux County farm. All had advanced bird care and biosecurity training.

In fact, the operation scored 100 percent on a U.S. Department of Agriculture biosecurity audit two months before the disease hit. The company knew the disease was on the move and tried to be proactive when it hit the state April 15, 2015. It attempted to shut down a county road and reroute traffic, but the county sheriff would not allow it. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

“We did not do a good enough job convincing our neighbours how bad this was going to be,” he said. “We tried to prepare ourselves, but we didn’t prepare our townships and our counties.” The disease hit the first farm April 25 and the other one, 10 kilometres away, was hit April 27. The sister companies worked together, used the same feed and moved eggs around. Five of their pullet growing sites turned up positive over the next two weeks. They had emergency management meetings daily and tried to keep everyone’s spirits up as they went through the grim task of removing or euthanizing 7.3 million birds. No one lost their job, but many asked if the company would survive. The logistics were a nightmare. Iowa’s agriculture department officially quarantined the farms, but by then they had already shut themselves down. They received a six page document from the government on how to isolate birds and products and create lines of separation and management of vehicle movement.


We tried to prepare ourselves, but we didn’t prepare our townships and our counties. MARK VAN OORT CENTER FRESH FARM EGGS

The USDA and the state constantly monitored vehicle movements in and out of the premises. “We knew how bad this was for us,” he said. “We couldn’t see the state fall apart, so we continued down that path.” The farms didn’t have enough people to do the work. Volunteers from the community and local church groups helped

with depopulation and provided meals. There was a prayer vigil from a local church. About 500 contract labourers were brought in, but many had never seen a chicken before and needed training as they worked in overheated barns in biohazards suits. The birds became very sick, very quickly. Those that did not die right away had to be humanely euthanized. Foam was not an option, and carbon dioxide was not always available. Gas supply companies did not work weekends, and work had to slow down if they ran out of carbon dioxide. The birds were supposed to be destroyed within 24 hours. The farms averaged 266,666 per day over 21 days. The birds were stored in big containers resembling a metal dumpster with a rubber lining and plastic bag. The containers could hold 10,000 birds each, and the farms eventually filled 225 containers with dead chickens, which had already started to decompose. Other birds were piled up in manure bunkers.

Carcass disposal was a challenge. Rendering was not an option, landfills did not want them and incineration units could not handle large numbers of birds. Burial was also not an option because of environmental contamination concerns, and the farm would have needed 125 acres for burial trenches. In the end, they decided on composting. The first step was to open the containers, which had been sitting for two weeks in 40 C weather. The odour was overwhelming. They needed plenty of space and had to find enough material to start the process using 10,000 tonnes of birds. They started composting April 30 and had early success using 55 percent birds, 30 percent carbon and 15 percent litter or manure. There were 39 kilometres of composted chicken piles. Once the barns were empty, they had to find an effective clean out method. It took 150,000 man hours to clean the Center Fresh facility with a dry clean system and heat disinfectant to eliminate the virus.

Wild birds may be carriers, water may cause spread Some waterfowl have immunity to avian flu but when it is passed on through feces it becomes highly pathogenic BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Migrating waterfowl crossing the Bering Strait may be responsible for carrying a virus that killed 50 million chickens and turkeys in the United States last year. Ducks, geese, gulls and terns can carry the killer avian influenza virus as they migrate but rarely succumb to it themselves, said Thomas DeLiberto, a veterinarian with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. “They can get infected, they can

shed virus and they show little to no clinical signs,” he said at the National Institute for Animal Agriculture’s April 3-7 annual meeting in Kansas City. The highly pathogenic form of the virus became the most serious animal health crisis to affect the U.S. Starting on the West Coast, it eventually affected 232 premises throughout the country at a cost of $3 billion for producer payments and clean up. Of those, 211 were commercial and 21 were backyard operations. Many infected operations are still in recovery mode. Wild fowl seem to have natural

immunity, but the virus changes from low pathogenic to highly pathogenic once they pass it on through feces or other forms of shedding. “Wild birds, depending on the

species and time of year, can move hundreds if not thousands of miles in a few days during the incubation period and shed viruses through that whole time period,” he said. These viruses probably started in Asia and hopscotched to Europe. It was not expected to show up in North America because of the distance. The first cases appeared in South Korea in Januar y 2014, when domestic ducks were infected. It appeared to be eradicated, but in April 2014 the virus showed up in Japan in domestic birds and in wild bird feces.

Migratory birds headed north that spring, and the virus was found in China during late summer and early fall. It was detected in November in Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom as birds started to move again. A highly pathogenic form was found in British Columbia in late November and ended up in the Pacific Northwest by December. This region coincides with the Pacific migratory flyway. Monitoring wild birds is difficult, although researchers would like to follow them to see how these viruses evolved and were distributed to affect so many poultry operations. Numerous poultry operations near the Great Lakes were infected, but scientists do not know if wild birds in this region were responsible because there is limited data. It is not likely that the virus found in the Midwest came from Washington or California, said DeLiberto. The birds probably introduced the virus much earlier in the fall, but it was not detected because no one was looking for it. Dabbling ducks such as mallards, terns and pintails that tip up when they feed in the water do not seem to be harmed by the virus, but Canada geese and raptors are more likely to die from it. Researchers also checked other wildlife, such as sparrows, starlings, pigeons, rats, skunks and raccoons, but didn’t find the virus. It is hard to find dead birds because nature takes care of them quickly, but more than 45,000 birds have been checked since last July. Two positives were found in mallards, but they did not necessarily die of disease. DeLiberto said these viruses are like an invasive species, and resident viruses usually out-compete or incorporate them. However, the invaders could also linger and cause more trouble. “It is probably still circulating in the environment, but we don’t know which way it is going to go yet,” he said. Many farmers might prefer to shoot the wild birds feeding in their fields, but they are the wrong target. The greater risk is actually standing water rather than the birds leaving feces on a poultry operation. “Water is a huge risk in my mind, much higher than a mallard flying over the property,” he said. Equipment and people move through contaminated puddles and ponds and then spread it to the farm. Mo s t p ro d u c e r s k n ow t h e y should never use untreated surface water to water poultry and clean equipment and barns. A good biosecurity plan could include removing vegetation from banks of man-made water structures, fencing off areas to separate people and equipment from water and natural vegetation and adding deterrent devices to discourage birds from landing there.

Poultry expert skeptical of free range benefits Caged hens establish a hierarchy that reduces pecking and cannibalism


It’s not certain that a commitment by major grocery chains and restaurants to buy cage-free eggs will benefit hens. The animal welfare science around enriched cages versus free-run egg production is murky because each system has pros and cons. “There are really strong advantages for every single (egg production method), and there are disadvantages,” said Karen Schwean-Lardner, an assistant professor in animal science who studies poultry welfare at the University of Saskatchewan. The grocery members of the

Retail Council of Canada, including Walmart, Loblaw’s and Sobeys, announced in March that they intend to buy 100 percent cage-free eggs by the end of 2025. Tim Hortons, McDonald’s and many other restaurants have made similar commitments. Animal welfare groups have applauded the pledge, but SchweanLardner isn’t convinced the decision is based in science. A University of California Davis study from a year ago supports Schwean-Lardner’s position. Scientists there spent three years evaluating hen housing at a farm in the U.S. Midwest. They looked at conventional cages, free-run systems and enriched cages, in which birds have more space, perches and nesting boxes. The scientists concluded that each method has “positive and negative impacts” on bird health, animal welfare, egg cost and worker health. Schwean-Lardner also said caged hens are less likely to fight. About eight birds are typically kept together in a cage, which leads to a natural pecking order. “They establish the top of that hierarchy, and the other birds learn their ranking,” said Schwean-Lardner. Understanding who is dominant or passive reduces the likelihood of

combat and prevents pecking and cannibalism. In contrast, the California study suggested that bird mortality is twice as high in a free-run system. Open housing is more violent because it’s impossible to comprehend a pecking order when thousands of birds move freely throughout a barn. “They don’t form the dominance hierarchy (arrangements) the same as the smaller groups,” Schwean-Lardner said. “We often see more cannibalism and feather pecking in those systems than we do in the cage systems…. There is documented research where (producers) have lost 30 to 40 percent of their birds in a few days from cannibalism.” Disease is also a problem in freerun systems because fecal matter is more abundant. In cages, fecal matter drops out the bottom and is removed.


PRODUCTION COST OF FREE RUN EGGS University of California Davis scientists studied egg production from hens in conventional cages, enriched cages and free-run systems to calculate the cost per dozen eggs, operating and capital costs. Prices ($U.S. /dozen) Conventional Enriched Free-run

costs $0.67 $0.756 $0.913

costs compared to conventional -+13% +36%

The biggest cost difference was in capital costs and labour: • Capital costs were $1.62 per dozen eggs for a free run barn, compared to $0.12 per dozen for an enriched cage. That’s because free run barns house fewer birds than caged systems • Labour was $0.74 per dozen in free run compared to $0.56 per dozen with enriched cages Source: UC Davis | WP GRAPHIC

Nonetheless, cages also have limitations, largely because birds cannot fly and move about freely in a cage. “The welfare is never going to get any better (in the future) inside an enriched cage,” said Darren Vanstone, corporate engagement manager with World Animal Protection Canada, a global animal welfare organization with a regional office in Toronto. “The cage-free systems … you can see where (welfare) would improve over time…. You see in well-managed cage-free systems, they tend to have better welfare.” Skilled employees and better management might improve welfare in free run housing, but genetics, feed quality, group sizes, age and space can also affect behaviour. “There are so many things that interact to cause cannibalism,” Schwean-Lardner said. “It (management) plays a part, but if we had the best managers in the world, this would inevitably

happen, because there are so many other factors.” Canadian retailers and restaurants may be committed to cagefree eggs, but Egg Farmers of Canada has other plans. Ninety percent of Canadian eggs are produced from conventionally caged hens. In February, the organization set a goal of reducing that number 50 percent by 2024, with the other 50 percent coming from enriched housing, free run or free range. Vanstone is skeptical that Canadians will continue to buy eggs that come from a caged hen. “In 10 years from now, consumers (will) not (accept) keeping animals in intensive confinement systems like cages,” he said. “When consumers see an enriched cage, they just see a cage. It’s really difficult to convince them (otherwise).” FOR MORE ON THIS STORY, SEE PAGE 31.

(Reuters) — Walmart plans to phase out the sale of eggs from caged hens by 2025. Walmart, the largest grocer in the United States with control of a quarter of the market, said it would require that egg suppliers adopt an industry standard for treatment of hens by 2025 and have their compliance monitored by a third party. The new guidelines will apply to the discount retailer’s more than 5,000 stores in the United States, including its Sam’s Club warehouse chain. Walmart had indicated that it planned to switch to cage-free eggs in May when it announced that it would push its suppliers to adhere to the “five principles” of animal

welfare, which include ensuring animals are not starved, have sufficient space to move and do not suffer mental distress. The company joins McDonald’s Corp, which set a deadline of 2025, and Burger King, which has committed to going 100 percent cagefree for its eggs by 2017. Walmart said it has offered some cage-free eggs in its stores since 2001. The move will likely add to pressure on the egg industry, which is facing a costly transition to a cagefree environment. Only six percent of U.S. hens, or 18 million birds, are now raised without cages, according to a recent estimate by United Egg Producers.

Cage controversy: cannibalism at issue

The late Bill Long probably wasn’t a website surfer. However, the endowment fund he created in the name of his uncle and fellow Alberta rancher, Henry Stewart Varley, will this year be used to create websites and social media for all the towns and villages in Vulcan County. The $30,000 for the project was awarded March 31 by the Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta, which administers the fund.

Activists blame poor management, not free-run system BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Animal welfare organizations are disputing the findings of a study that concluded cage free hens are twice as likely to die of cannibalism and pecking than hens in caged systems. They say the three-year University of California study, which was released last April, wasn’t a fair comparison between cage free and caged housing. The experiment was done at a farm in the U.S. Midwest that was unfamiliar with cage-free methods and may not have known how to manage the free-run flock. “As an example of what this means, imagine if you evaluated the results of a new franchisee who’s never run a McDonald’s before to someone who’s been running McDonald’s locations for a career,” said Sayara Thurston, campaign manager for Humane Society International in Canada. “Which is to say, the issues seen in the (UC Davis) study were primarily management-related, not inherent to the system, as they are with cage housing.” Compassion in World Farming also disputed the study. The group acknowledged that hen mortality was twice as high in the free-run system than in enriched cages, but it blamed those results on poor management and lack of space. Free-run hens in the study had only 144 sq. inches of space per bird, which wasn’t considered enough to prevent fighting. “A minimum of 216 sq. inch per hen must be allocated to allow for normal behavior,” the group said. “In the EU, the legally required minimum space allowance for (cage-free) systems is 172 sq. inch of space per bird. Offering only 144 sq. inches … could have contributed to the higher mortality, pecking, failed landings, and other problems observed in the aviary flocks.” Discussions over the validity of this study are likely academic at this point because major retailers and restaurant chains, including McDonald’s and Loblaw’s, have committed to buying cage free eggs in the future. Walmart announced April 5 that it would sell only cage-free eggs by 2025. Since Walmart is the largest grocer in the United States, its decision effectively ends the debate and will force egg farmers to switch to open housing, the Humane Society of the United States said on its website. “(This) announcement with Walmart … provides the closing

argument on the era of batterycage confinement.”

The money will be used to develop or update existing websites for the town and villages in the county, and devise a social media presence in the form of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Ashlee Beck, the administrative assistant for the Vulcan Business Development Society, is working on the one-year pilot project, which has also involved a website creation company. “We are going to highlight a lot of different things in the county,” she said. Tourist maps and information on local attractions, historical sites, lakes, campgrounds,

churches and cemeteries will be included, along with a wealth of other material. Vulcan County is more than 5,400 sq. kilometres in size and has about 7,000 residents. The Town of Vulcan is its largest centre and is known in some circles for its Star Trek-related attractions. The Henry S. Varley Fund for Rural Life is a $4.4 million endowment designed to generate about $150,000 per year in grant funds in perpetuity.






Farmer belt-tightening hurts U.S. ag companies’ profits Grain prices have come crashing down and growers are spending less on inputs, causing suppliers to offer deep discounts (Reuters) — North Dakota farmer Randy Thompson plans to apply 30 percent less nitrogen fertilizer to his corn this year to save money in the face of crashing crop prices. In Minnesota, Andy Pulk is trucking crop nutrients to his farm from 560 kilometres away because he found a better price than his local co-operative could offer. He has also stopped purchases of machinery. “We’re on a complete spending hold across the farm,” Pulk said. More acres than ever before are likely to be planted with soybeans and corn in the U.S. Midwest this year, which means crop input companies might have expected a windfall for earnings. However, grain prices near fiveyear lows and farm incomes at their lowest levels since 2002 have encouraged growers to tighten their belts by reducing spending on fertilizer, seeds and chemicals.

Suppliers have responded by introducing the steepest seed discounts in at least six years, Monsanto executives have said. Monsanto cut prices to preserve its customer base after Pioneer, in particular, “came out with offers like free seed and other pretty significant discounts,” said Michael Frank, Monsanto’s chief commercial officer. Together, the companies’ products are used on 70 percent of all corn and soybean acres in the Unit-

ed States. Some seed dealers said more farmers are foregoing new varieties to save money. Nathan Kizer, seed manager at South Dakota Wheat Growers, a 5,000 member cooperative with locations in North and South Dakota, said farmers have been moving away from costlier seeds that are “stacked” with three or more biotech traits. Instead, they have been buying varieties that have been on the market three to five years. “We’re not planting a bunch of the old dogs, but we are using a lot of the middle-of-the-pack stuff,” Kizer said. Some farmers said they were no longer applying excess fertilizer to their fields to boost yields. However, Bert Frost, senior vicepresident of sales, distribution and market development for CF Industries, said farmers will not reduce nitrogen use because that could hurt yields. “The one variable that you can count on to pick up maximum yield is nitrogen,” Frost said. Savings are crucial for farmers as the U.S. Department of Agriculture forecasts that net incomes will fall three percent this year after a 38 percent slump in 2015 and a 27 percent drop in 2014. “You’ve got to be really efficient to make money now,” said Thompson. “Unless the markets come back, it’s going to be really ugly for a lot of guys.”

Contract changes for Ont. vegetable sector proposed BY JEFFREY CARTER FOR THE WESTERN PRODUCER

DRESDEN, Ont. — The Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission is looking to change the way contracts are set for processing vegetables in the province. Commission chair Geri Kamenz said the idea is to develop a more robust and competitive industry. “We’re looking at what else we can do structurally so that people can maximize their opportunities,” Kamenz said. “Politics has nothing to do with it.… We’ve heard comments from processors and growers alike.” Kamenz said the proposal for change is part of Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne’s challenge to expand the Ontario agriculture and food sector. Francis Dobbelaar, an Ontario tomato grower and chair of the marketing board representing growers, is concerned with the proposal. He said the commission has released too few details to judge whether proposed changes will have a positive or negative impact on growers. According to the “summary of proposal” released Feb. 16, the commission “learned that processors would prefer to negotiate with their own active growers of the vegetable that is the subject for negotiation.”

In addition, minimum requirements are to be set for active growers to be part of the negotiation process. The growers’ association and the Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Processors Association can now appoint up to 10 individuals to negotiate prices for each regulated processing vegetable. “Obviously we do not believe that changes to a democratic process should occur as a result of concerns expressed by processors or even by a relatively small number of growers,” said the Ontario Processing Vegetable Growers’ March 30 newsletter. “The board has repeatedly indicated to the FPMC that the overwhelming majority of growers support the present system in which elected representatives determine who negotiates annual processing vegetable contracts on behalf of all growers.” Dobbelaar said the FPMC may have been influenced by a small set of growers and one particular processor. “If you give preferential treatment to one company, then that company can eat the other companies’ lunches,” he said. “We try to do this (set contracts) as fair as we can. That’s what we’re elected for.” The OPVG represents farmers who grow 13 processing vegetables.

U.S. auto sector ally in corn biofuel push American drivers are also on board

NEW YORK, N.Y. (Reuters) — U.S. corn producers may have found two unlikely allies in their decadelong battle with big oil to get ethanol into the nation’s fuel stream: automobile manufacturers and American drivers. The auto industry’s slow, somewhat grudging acceptance of government policy on renewable fuel and bumper car sales will ultimately challenge the petroleum industry’s concept of a blend wall — a 10 percent saturation point for ethanol in motor fuel if there is no over-

haul in vehicles and at the pump. Analysis of vehicle sales and government data shows that almost a fifth of the vehicles on U.S. roads can safely handle E-15 fuel, which is gasoline with 15 percent ethanol content, or 50 percent more than the typical U.S. blend. That is considerably above the American Automobile Association’s 14 percent estimate from June 2015 and could climb to nearly a quarter by the end of the year if brisk auto sales continue. At stake is the $10 billion that oil firms would lose to ethanol producers if the higher ethanol blend became the new norm in a U.S. gasoline market worth $290 billion. Analysts say the trend marks a significant victory for ethanol makers and the entire biofuel industry. The U.S. renewable fuel policy promoted by two presidential administrations and efforts to boost ethanol use have been subject of court battles with oil associations and automaker groups. Washington sets annual targets for the amounts of renewable fuel that should be blended with gasoline and diesel. In 2015, most new vehicles sold were approved for E15 by manufacturers for the first time. This year, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which represents more than 10 percent of the U.S. market, became the last of the Detroit Three to approve the higher ethanol blend for use in its 2016 models. A full conversion of the nation’s fleet to E15 could still take more than a decade, experts say. However, more E15-friendly cars on the road will likely prompt gas stations to install the new pumps and storage tanks that needed to sell the fuel, removing the last major hurdle to its widespread acceptance. “It’s a chicken and egg thing,” said John O’Dell, an independent automotive industry specialist in California’s Orange County. “The manufacturers are starting to come around to redesigning fuel systems to handle E15, and that will slowly but surely see a growth of pumps that handle it.” General Motors Co. and Ford Motor Co. led the move toward E15 by adopting materials capable of withstanding ethanol’s corrosiveness for model years 2012 and 2013, respectively, after the Environmental Protection Agency approved E15 in all vehicles. The EPA has said the 15 percent ethanol blend has been safe for all vehicles since model year 2001, but that failed to dispel drivers’ concerns that they might void their warranties by filling up with the n e w f u e l . C a r m a k e r s’ q u i e t embrace of E15 may start to ease such fears. The renewable fuels program, launched in 2005 is not without controversy. Ethanol provides less energy than gasoline and requires more frequent refueling, which reduces a car’s efficiency. Environmentalists argue it is better to focus on environmentally friendly technologies like hybrid engines and fully electric vehicles.

Farm labour shortage major concern in 1966 FROM THE ARCHIVES


The Western Producer takes a weekly look at some of the stories that made headlines in issues of the paper from 75, 50, 25 and 10 years ago.

75 YEARS AGO: APRIL 17, 1941

25 YEARS AGO: APRIL 18, 1991

Federal agriculture minister James Gardiner appealed to prairie farmers’ sense of wartime patriotism as he took to the air waves to ask them to support the government’s new wheat policy, which would reduce wheat acreage and prices. “There is no use sugaring the pills to convince you we are trying to do something for you,” he told farmers. “We are trying to do something for Canada and Britain and for the democratic way of living. It is not my intention to try to convince you that what we are asking you to do will help you financially.”

The United States outraged prime minister Brian Mulroney by appealing a ruling against a countervail duty on Canadian pork imports. “The Americans chose to abuse the process by taking it the extra step,” he said.

6,000 Finding another 6,000 acres on which to plant beets might be a scramble for some, he added. Crop rotations and other commitments have to be managed. “That might be an issue where there’s a lot of canola and seed canola being grown … but by and large I think most of it is going to be taken up in the first go-round.” Seven of the association’s nine

directors are new to the board this year. The growers also parted ways with executive director Gerald Third, who had been with the association for seven years. Bergen Henengouwen said Third was “relieved of his duties,” and the search has begun for a replacement, who he hoped would be in place by May or June. Growers are now in the second year of a four-year contract with Lantic, which was signed last year after rancorous negotiations that saw Lantic threaten to close the Taber sugar plant. Beets were planted late in the season as a result, but prime growing conditions led to high tonnage and high sugar content. He said the board is now looking ahead. “I’m optimistic. Lantic officials have expressed their confidence in the industry by increasing the acreage,” he said. “We’re looking to keep things going, and it’s our anticipation that we’ll do all we can to facilitate the industry.”

taken aback by the bids for construction of its proposed grain terminal in Vancouver. Second vice-president E.A. Boden said the lowest bid was so much higher than the engineering estimates that the board had asked that the project be re-examined. The Manitoba Farm Bureau expressed “serious concern” over the shortage of farm labour and asked the provincial government to help by providing more reasonable rates for unemployment insurance and workmen’s compensation.

The Manitoba Federation of Agriculture protested a National Dairy Council recommendation to the Dominion Dairy Products Board to set the minimum price for butter at 31 cents a pound. The Canadian Dairy Farmers’ Federation had recommended 34 cents, which the Manitoba federation supported.

Alberta sugar beet growers have an additional 6,000 acres to plant this year. Lantic Sugar, which owns the sugar factory in Taber, Alta., has expanded contracted sugar beet acres to 28,000 from 22,000 acres that were grown under contract last year. Ernie Bergen Henengouwen, chair of the sugar beet growers association, said the additional acres are a good sign. “There’s a bit of a renewed sense of optimism in the industry,” he said. “People are excited that the acreage is going up. After coming off a good year last year, everybody is anxious to get going.” Bergen Henengouwen said Lantic told growers that it had obtained “a fairly substantial contract” for sugar this year and that, coupled with the low Canadian dollar, led to expanded acreage. No seed has been released to growers so no beets have yet been planted, although there has been a

considerable amount of field preparation in southern Alberta because of warm conditions. Most growers will wait until the irrigation districts start releasing water unless it rains in the next two weeks, said Bergen Henengouwen. Irrigation systems usually come on stream in late April or early May.

Taking concepts from the producer and developing them into engineered designs, JTL is supplying heavy duty bins that are easy on the horizon, impressive in the farmyard and will last a lifetime! All material is sandblasted and coated in a two part polyurethane finish for durability and pride of ownership. Conditioning grain is key to short or long term storage stability. The Force 360 aeration system provides even airflow that producers can count on, from bottom to top. JTL believes in its products, so servicing what we sell comes naturally. We know our storage solutions are among the best in the industry and the pride we take in delivering those to the farm results in the best value that a grower will find anywhere.

Big food companies have taken over the organic sector in the U.S., and some worry that standards and ideals are being brushed aside to secure global markets. | USDA PHOTO ORGANIC MOVEMENT

Organic ideals swallowed by food giants Original principles of environmentally friendly, sustainable food production have been watered down in order to get bigger and more efficient BY ROBIN BOOKER SASKATOON NEWSROOM

KENASTON, Sask. — The organic food sector began as a fringe social movement in the 1960s, a far cry from the global market that today racks up more than US$70 billion in annual sales. Social movements are often appropriated and transformed into profit seeking markets, and when that happens, the movement’s original goals are challenged, said University of Saskatchewan food researcher Lisa Clark. This is what has happened with the organic food industry, she added. “There has been a shift in the movement as it has become more mainstream and more corporate,” she said during her April 1 presentation to the SaskOrganics annual general meeting in Kenaston. “It shifted from focusing on the health of the soil and the organic agriculture process to promoting marketable qualities of organic products.” Clark, who recently published The Changing Politics of Organic Food in North America, said there are two competing models within the organic industry. One focuses on the methods used to grow organic crops, while the other is a product-based approach that

focuses solely on the end commodity. She said the organic movement’s original philosophy was based on three general principles: economically viable farms, environmental sensitive practices and social sustainability.


Consumers began taking health and healthy eating more seriously in the 1980s, and organic food became popular. Large businesses bought into the industry, and they focused on the growing consumer demand for a greater variety of organic goods, including processed food. The ideals of the original organic food social movement began to be brushed aside. Clark said four big players own most of the organic companies in Canada and the United States: Hain-Celestial Group, United Nat-

ural Foods International, Whole Foods Market and Kurig Green Mountain. They a have combined collective annual earnings of more than $5.3 billion. “They are making a lot of the decisions over what happens in the organic sector in Canada and the U.S.,” Clark said. “They own a lot of the processing and distribution and production.” The original organic standards reflected bioregional differences, and producers were able to change the standards as more information and growing techniques become available. The standards also reflected the ideals of the original movement and supported growing processes that promoted environmental and social sustainability in local economies. Clark said these socio-economic and environmental qualities were a large part of what made organic distinct from conventional agriculture. Developing organic standards at the provincial and then national levels was controversial, including the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s ratification of Canadian organic production standards in 2009. The sector was divided over what should be included in the regulations and who should be involved in crafting the codes.

Clark said large industry players persevered and the regulations focused on end products, Socioeconomic and environmental standards were largely left out. “These regulations are now product based, meaning as long as you don’t have the synthetic inputs of fertilizers, pesticides and Gomes, your product can be certified organic,” she said. “You don’t necessarily have to be a steward of the land, you don’t have to care about biodiversity, you don’t need to practise polyculture or do it on a small scale. It can be an industrial sized farm, using migrant labour, which in the case of California is exactly what’s happening, and still be a certified organic production.” Certification dropped The organic food industry became incorporated into conventional agriculture’s existing power structures, and liberal international trade policies pressured the sector to adopt a product-based approach. Equivalency agreements for organic standards with the European Union, the U.S., Canada, Japan, and Australia now mean that any of the organic products from these countries can be sold without having to acquire organic

certification in the country in which they are sold. “As organic has become more of a tradable commodity, these liberal market principles that are used to govern conventional agriculture and food are now used in organics as well, things like economy of scale, go bigger, reduce overhead cost wherever possible, and try to be as efficient as possible,” she said. “Efficiency on its own is not a bad thing, it makes sense, but these kinds of moves to reduce often catches things like making sure there is biodiversity on your land and in your space.” Organic certifications are losing their ability to signify food that’s produced by farms with specific social qualities that use good land stewardship, she said. However, Clark said consumers who want to use their purchasing power to support production techniques that support the original ideals of the organic social movement can use other certifications. “If you do value the social element of organic, then you can get something like a certified organic product that is also fair trade, or an organic product that has an Ecocert label, which means there is more consideration for the environmental principles,” she said.





Companies focus on Alta. elevator network Facilities to offer increased storage and quick turnaround BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

At least 16 new concrete elevators could be popping up in Alberta and Saskatchewan over the next few years, according to grain industry executives. G3 Canada, Paterson Global Foods and GrainsConnect Canada all have plans to build new state-ofthe-art facilities in the western Prairies. Alberta alone could see close to 10 new facilities, provided that grain handling companies carry through on plans to develop new networks or expand existing ones. “We’ve been pretty clear that our focus (going forward) is on Saskatchewan and Alberta,” said Karl Gerrand, chief executive officer of G3 Canada. “We feel we’ve got a pretty good eastern footprint at this point and a pretty good footprint in Manitoba for what we need.” G3 also plans to build a new export terminal at the Port of Vancouver. Gerrand said it will be the keystone of G3’s efforts to become a major player that can compete with existing companies and ship significant volumes of prairie grain through the West Coast. Construction is expected to cost more than $500 million. The facility will include a loop track rail system for efficient unloading and industry-leading turnaround times. Gerrand said the company is planning to build 10 more concrete facilities on the western Prairies, bringing the number of inland facilities in G3’s inland prairie network to 22 or more. Paterson Global Foods is also expanding its Alberta footprint. The company has announced

Alberta and Saskatchewan will see grain handling facilities popping up in the next few years as three major companies announce plans to increase volumes of prairie grain heading to the West Coast. | FILE PHOTO plans to construct facilities at Daysland, southeast of Camrose, and another at Bowden, Ata., south of Red Deer. Both elevators will include loop track rail systems capable of loading 135-car unit trains. In 2012, Paterson also opened a facility at Gleichen, Alta., east of Calgary. The company has 13 primary elevators in Manitoba, 13 in Saskatchewan and two in Alberta. Shane Paterson, Paterson’s corporate development officer, said more prairie grain than ever is flowing in a westerly direction. Efficient delivery locations in Alberta will contribute to faster turnaround time for grain trains, a key consideration for railway companies that are focused on moving

more product with fewer cars. “Since the Canadian Wheat Board (was eliminated), the market has been telling grain handlers that pretty well any bushels that are coming off west of Winnipeg should go through Vancouver,” Paterson said. GrainsConnect Canada, a joint venture involving Australia’s GrainCorp and Japan’s Zen-Noh Grain, is also planning to build four elevators on the Prairies. One of those will be at Niobe, Alta., north of Innisfail. GrainsConnect president Warren Stow has indicated that the company will announce a second Alberta location this spring. Unlike G3’s new facilities, which will include storage capacity of

Since the Canadian Wheat Board (was eliminated), the market has been telling grain handlers that pretty well any bushels that are coming off west of Winnipeg should go through Vancouver. SHANE PATERSON PATERSON GLOBAL FOODS

30,000 to 40,000 tonnes, Paterson’s Alberta facilities will have total storage of 55,000 tonnes. Paterson said the grain transportation crisis of 2013-14 demonstrated that commercial storage

capacity is critically important. “We had a bumper crop that year, and Canada as a whole was basically unable to get its grain to market,” Paterson said. “The one thing that … farmers and grain handlers learned (is) … that storage is king.” Gerrand said his company takes a different view, placing less emphasis on storage and more on throughput. He said G3s model will use loop tracks at inland delivery point and at port. “The value of a loop track in the country is really only able to extract its full value if it has the same loop track capability at the west coast port.”


Numerous expansions may spur consolidation, says official BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Grain handling companies that hope to establish a beachhead in Western Canada could face a steep learning curve, particularly if they don’t have reliable port access arrangements, say industry executives. “I think there will be a difficult learning curve for some of the new entrants,” said Shane Paterson, corporate development officer with Paterson Global Foods. “It’s one thing to have a facility that allows you to buy grain on the Prairies, but unless you can get it to market, you’re not going to be making a business out of it.” Billions of dollars have been invested in the western Canadian grain handling industry over the past three or four years, including new construction projects and upgrades to existing facilities.

Paterson described the industry as highly competitive and already capable of handling prairie production. A handful of established grain companies also control the vast majority of capacity at export terminals, which could leave new elevator companies in a precarious position. “It’s a tough equation,” Paterson said. “Is there enough port capacity in Vancouver? I think the answer is yes. But those who control port facilities will control the margins of any newcomers.” Paterson said some new investors might be inclined to reassess their investments now that Canadian grain handling margins have returned to more normal levels. “What I expect we’ll see in the near future is that some of the ambitious projects that … new players have made us aware of may

not come to fruition as investors try to reconcile the outlay of cash with the new … margins,” he said. Darwin Sobkow, executive vicepresident of agribusiness operations and processing at Richardson International, agreed that investors that have plans to build new facilities will need to take a

close look at volumes, margins and markets. Smaller operators that have assured sales might be working

with different margins than large bulk exporters. Nonetheless, some of the proposed elevator construction projects that have been announced recently came as a surprise to Richardson, one of Canada’s most experienced grain handling companies. “For us it was surprising,” Sobkow said. “We looked at a lot of the markets where these people are building … and we could not show a return that would justify the investment.” The investments aren’t small. “You’re probably talking in the $35 to $45 million range to build one concrete elevator, and today, the existing infrastructure is handling the crop.” Sobkow conceded that significant increases in production or export volumes would change the economics of building and operating a new elevator.

“I don’t know what the environment will look like in five or 10 or 15 years,’ he said. “But from our standpoint, (some of the new projects) would be very hard to justify.” Sobkow said the current phase of investment could be followed by another round of consolidation. “A lot of these areas (in Western Canada) are getting pretty overbuilt,” Sobkow said. “As people find that they’re not meeting their expected volumemargin thresholds, it will inevitably lead to consolidation.” Paterson said some new entrants might be able to survive, but they will likely be niche suppliers. “Some smaller operators … are able to make a living … but for them to become a major player, it’s going to take a lot more than one or two high-throughput elevators.”

sions of interest. We were looking to see if rural communities were interested in getting affordable housing,” said ARDN executive director Dee Ann Benard. “The initial response was huge. We had in the end over 40 communities come forward, and more since then, saying yes, they have a real need for affordable housing

and they would like to see that happen in their community.” The non-profit ARDN has partnered with a Calgary modular building manufacturer to explore options to build townhouses or multi-family apartment buildings in rural Alberta. First on board, equipped with funds garnered by ARDN, are

the communities of Sexsmith, Banff, Lac la Biche, Boyle and Fort Macleod. Benard said they will use the money for needs assessment, feasibility studies and in some cases writing a business plan to ensure new housing is useful and sustainable in the longer term. “We’re working with five communities now and we have several more in the pipeline, but they have received some seed funding from CMHC, the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation, and we are working with them to do those preliminary steps.” An additional grant from the Alberta Real Estate Foundation will allow ARDN to help the communities at a much lower cost, said Benard. She said many communities have already identified a need for more housing but lack the funds to do the necessary studies. In addition, hiring construction firms for larger projects is often too expensive for small-town resources because of travel and accommodation for work crews. That’s where Ladacor entered the picture. The Calgary-based firm makes larger-scale modular housing using shipping containers as the basic framework. “It seems like a nice solution,” said Ladacor president Joe Kiss. “Typically our work is in rural type areas. We’re able to, between ARDN and Ladacor, very effectively, basically walk the communities through the projects.” Both Benard and Ladacor acknowledge the public’s initial skepticism about housing built from shipping containers. “We use the shipping container as one part of an engineered module,” said Kiss. “So we take multiple shipping containers. We mount them into a structure. Nobody wants to live in just a shipping container, so we’re able to open them up. We’re able to create, for instance, large meeting rooms and conference rooms and reception areas. You won’t even know you’re in a shipping container.” The units are one-trip containers, added Kiss, and as the name

implies, they are nearly new when repurposed by Ladacor. The firm has built a large hotel in Sioux Lookout, Ont., and is in the process of building a four-storey hotel in Bruderheim, Alta. Benard said Ladacor’s units are mostly built at the firm’s Calgary factory, eliminating the costs of having a construction crew on site for long periods. The units are then shipped and erected on a prepared site. Local crews can do the foundation work and other construction and finishing as needed. Depending on design, the containers can be stacked vertically or horizontally. “It’s really a fast process, highly certified and a very consistent product that you’re getting,” she said. No construction is underway in the communities involved. Preliminary studies will document existing housing inventory, average housing costs, average income and who might use additional housing, be it seniors, families or people with disabilities. Kat Done, housing liaison with Fort Macleod’s Family and Community Support Services, said the community is in the study stage, using a $10,000 CMHC grant. If multi-unit housing is built, “it would change the landscape of homelessness in Fort Macleod,” said Done. “If we make it affordable, we now have families who can live here affordably. Once you provide that housing stability, instead of having a family in crisis and a family at risk, you now have a family that can contribute back to your community. You have a family that is going to pay taxes in your community and buy groceries in your community and send their kids to school in your community and maybe volunteer their time in your community.” Done said many of her clients are young couples with young children or large families. Both types of clients face difficulty finding affordable housing that meets their needs.





Visitors pour in to make Agribition most profitable ever The agricultural show brought in $230,000 more than the previous year and livestock sales were the highest since 1975 at $3.4 million BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Last week’s announcement of record profits and the highest Canadian Western Agribition attendance in six years was tempered by the news that chief executive officer Marty Seymour is leaving the Regina show. Seymour has been at the helm for five years and will step down at the end of this month to take an industry relations position at Farm Credit Canada. President Stewart Stone said it would likely take six to eight weeks to find a replacement.

He said Seymour did a lot to take the show to another level through new programs and strong promotion. “He’s leaving the show in much better shape and a way better place than when he arrived,” Stone said before the show’s annual general meeting April 7. The 2015 show reported operational profit of $844,606, up about $230,000 from the previous record set last year. Attendance was 130,200, including more than 800 international guests from 70 countries. Rodeo attendance was a record 23,560, which likely won’t be bro-

ken because the number of pro rodeo performances will drop to four this year from the five that the Canadian Cowboys’ Association finals held. Livestock sales were more than $3.4 million for the first time since 1975: $2 million of that was from purebred beef sales. The show’s economic impact provincially also rose to $56 million. “We went from $37 million to $56 million in the last three years,” Seymour said. “That’s six days’ worth of business.” Both men said the show’s success is due to programs that met visitors’

expectations. A kick-off barbecue in downtown Regina early last November drew 1,500 people, and a fundraising auction featuring live animals at a downtown hotel raised $8,000 for STARS. Stone, who was re-elected president at the annual meeting, said the show has raised $19,000 for STARS in the last three years and contributed $25,000 to its scholarship program for agricultural students. Construction of the new International Trade Centre at Evraz Place is on schedule. “We’re optimistic that we’ll have partial use of the facility this fall

and full use by 2017,” Stone said. Seymour said Agribition has drawn more urban visitors over the last few years, which highlights the social, cultural and economic impact of agriculture. He credited the staff and volunteers for that success, saying the show has never been about him or just one person. “I think the work that Agribition does is noble,” he said. “We’re helping the industry buy and sell things, we’re telling the agriculture story and we do it in a fun way. Nobody else has had more fun than me.”

Razor shaves pulses, beans Geringhoff sets its sights on a flexible header that handles small, short lentils and large, tall soybeans BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

NEW ORLEANS, La. — A new player has joined the pliability field at harvest time. European far m equipment maker Geringhoff’s operation at St. Cloud, Minnesota, is building its latest farm machinery tools in North America, including the company’s first flex header. Flexible headers have been scraping pulse crop and soybean fields since the 1970s, but despite their utility, the added cost and weight made them a second choice for producers looking to harvest cereals, unless they needed them to get some of that low hanging fruit. The units often paid off in short order with the close shave they delivered to the ground and by freeing up cropping choices for growers. Draper headers have added gentle handling and high capacity over large widths. Combining the two takes creative engineering, Erik Quanbeck of Geringhoff said about the five years it took to bring one to market. “We scrapped the first two designs. We met with a lot of farmers to find out what they liked or didn’t like about the competition’s machines,” he said. “We wanted to keep the weight low. The ability to manage very wide widths and shave the ground clean.” The end result, the new Truflex Razor header, would also need to handle the smallest lentil crops and the large, upright soybean crops of the U.S. Midwest. A three section, hinged frame allows the outer wings to move up and down in a 24 inch range at the ends of the header. The central, hydraulically driven cutter bar chases these movements. Not having drives at the ends of the wings allows the Razor to have four-inch-wide crop dividers. A controller automatically looks after the cutter bar and header height movement, but each of the two outboard wings have hydraulically managed wheels that take those directions. The operator can lift or lower either side manually during operation. This lifting allows for a partial pass to be made at the end of a field or final passes without locking up the side without crop.

and roller mounts. Air flows out through the back of the rock guard behind the knife and blows seeds toward the middle of the belts. Small seeds, such as canola and flax, could also take advantage of this design when the table is locked up. The company says it hasn’t been doing a lot of work with those crops at this point, but it has widely tested it in cereals. It is available in 35 and 40 foot widths, but Geringhoff has plans for a later release of larger and smaller models. “We will build them for North America and international markets in St. Cloud,” said Quanbeck, who can be reached at or 315-7306033.

ELROSE, Sask. — Getting grain from the bottom of the trailer to the auger can be a painful reach, especially in the field, where things don’t always line up as well as they do in the bin yard. Kim Hartman farms near Elrose, where his company, K-Hart Industries, also builds some of the Prairies’ largest no-till disc drills and other field tools. “We have been working on this for a few years, but it was first to solve some of our own issues at seeding and harvest,” he said about his Pitbull Conveyor. “We tried it out for quite a while to make it do the job right.” The conveyor attaches to the trailer and can be stored between the hoppers and above the grates on most trailers when not used. The all-aluminum unit has an I-beam rail and swivel that allows the hydraulically powered conveyor to slide back and forth and position freely along the side of the trailer. “Repositioning (trailers) can be a pain and, depending on the situation, has some inherent dangers in it,” he said. The conveyor’s speed is adjustable and capable of keeping up with a 13 inch auger at 8,500 bushels per hour. However, it needs 15 gallons per minute of hydraulic flow. Air cylinders move the conveyor into place and control its height. “There is no lifting involved,” he said. “It positions with very little effort, and takes five minutes to remove when its not needed.” For more information, call Hartman at 306-378-2258.

It’s an option that producers will find pays off pretty fast. We found a lot of growers adding air reels to their headers. This one flexes right along with the knife. ERIK QUANBECK, GERINGHOFF

The lightweight header uses a Geringhoff-designed three-piece reel, which features teardrop bats reminiscent of those on the older New Holland and Deere headers from the 1980s and 1990s. “We looked at pulse crops and beans that need that gentle push without wrapping up,” said. It can be a challenge to keep seed on a header, especially at the front of a draper, but the company has designed an air fed system

that blows seeds back, onto the belts. “It’s an option that producers will find pays off pretty fast,” said Quanbeck. “We found a lot of growers adding air reels to their headers. This one flexes right along with the knife.” A fan blows the air through the large tube frame to pipes that run in the middle of the canvases to the hollow, knife-support tube





Two new heads may be better than one Twin row corn and variable-width rows can be accommodated BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

Row crop heads are expensive, doubly so if you buy a second head for a different row spacing. Geringhoff’s response is to introduce new heads capable of harvesting multiple configurations. The German company has a new manufacturing facility at St. Cloud, Minnesota, and has announced a new product line named Independence heads. The line rolls out with the Freedom head and the Patriot head, according to a recent release from the Minnesota office. The line attempts to address a need now that growers are beginning to use a wider variety of planting configurations based on conditions, varieties and changes in how they want to manage their crops.

The Patriot head was developed specifically to handle high-population, high-yield twin-row corn plantings. Double sprocket gathering chains eliminate whipping and cob loss. | GERINGHOFF PHOTO Until now, multiple planting configurations created problems at harvest. Either the farmer was forced to invest in another row crop head or, in the worst-case scenario, would hold off upgrading his crop management scheme. The Freedom head is engineered with an angled, two-chain system to better feed the crop, reducing

plugging and crop loss. The gathering chain provides aggressive feeding in down corn, allowing harvest closer to the ground by putting the gathering chains underneath down, tangled corn. Geringhoff said new gearbox technology allows row units to be placed in close proximity, giving good performance in narrow

row spacing and in difficult harvest conditions. “Its radical new gear box design can handle row spacing of various planting configurations. Also, its Rota Disc technology offers bestin-class residue processing, which is critical for high population corn,” according to the release. The Patriot head was developed

in conjunction with Stine Seed and was engineered to handle highyielding, high-population, twinrow plantings, which increase the volume of crop and residue processed. Do u ble spro cket gath er ing chains gently guide crop into the row units, almost eliminating whipping and cob loss common to conventional twin-row harvesting heads. Extra hard surfacing extends the life of snapping roll supports and deck plates and stainless steel wear guards extend the life of row dividers. Growers can also add end row augers to improve crop feeding and direct overhanging crop into the header, and optional Integrated Crop Flow (ICF) sweeper to aid in a smooth harvesting by reducing the slug feeding and plugging. Like the Freedom head, the Patriot is designed to handle high yields, tough conditions and provide more harvest options. Both heads have a standard two-year warranty.


Field tests show tracks consume up to 15 percent less fuel than tires BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

Much of the tracks versus wheels discussion over the past 25 years has focused on compaction and working in wet conditions. But what about fuel consumption? The underlying assumption has always been that it must take more diesel to pull a big heavy rubber track through a rotation than it does to rotate a round tire. However, testing conducted in s o u t h e r n Ma n i t o b a i n 2 0 1 5 proved the assumption wrong. Rubber tracks require 11 to 15 percent less energy than tires in reallife field conditions, according to Stephen Foord, engineer with Elmer’s Manufacturing at Altona Manitoba. Foord conducted the research on a field adjacent to the factory where Elmer builds driven and non-driven rubber tracks for implements. The fuel reduction benefit of 11 to 15 percent for rubber tracks is the average of dozens of passes made pulling the same grain cart on tracks and on wheels. Foord says he was prompted to do the comparisons after seeing a similar study done by an American university, but with lower weights than those typically seen on Canadian prairie farms. “We tested with a grain cart and compared wheels to tracks at the same weights. We tested on fresh tilled ground, tilled ground that dried for a few days and untilled canola ground. But we didn’t find any really bad mud conditions,” says Foord, adding that he also tested on concrete for a reference.

“We did three passes with each tire or track setup and for each soil condition. The runs were about 400 metres for each pass. Weights in the cart ranged from empty up to 100,000 pounds of grain.” Most people look at tracks, then at wheels and automatically reach the instinctive conclusion that tracks require more energy to turn. Foord says it may look that way, but tires and tracks behave differently. “With wheels you have a point going down into the ground. The bottom of the tire always creates a centralized hole, which the cart has to go through. The bottom of the tire creates a berm in front of it, even in dry conditions. The tire is always trying to pull itself over that berm and out of the rut. “With a track, there’s no concentration of weight so there’s only a very small berm in front. Weight is spread out behind the leading edge. Tracks ‘float’ or stay higher on top of the soil, reducing what engineers describe as rolling resistance.” He says his study focussed on non-driven TransferTracks, which are designed to be interchangeable with wheels and so more relevant for most farmers. Foord adds that Elmer’s larger track system is designed for a higher weight range that wheels don’t cover. While wheels pulled easier than tracks on concrete, there was less resistance pulling tracks in all field scenarios. Although the study focused on TransferTracks, Foord also compared energy required to pull the larger track system. Both tracks pulled easier than

wheels, but the lighter TransferTracks required less horsepower at weights below 35,000 lb. per side, making them suitable for use with an air-seeder cart, small grain cart or a rolling water-fertilizer tank. In a news release from Elmer’s, Hartney, Man., producer Tim Morden said his experience pulling a large capacity Bourgault cart fitted with Elmer’s TransferTracks supports Foord’s findings. “When we had duals on the back of the cart, dirt would build up in front of the wheels and slow it down, making it hard to pull. This

didn’t happen with tracks,” says Morden, adding that the biggest difference with tracks is reduced compaction and rutting, especially in wet conditions. The study concluded that reduced energy requirements not only result in better fuel efficiency,

but also can allow growers to use higher speeds in the field, or pull wider drills with the same tractor. For more information, contact Foord at 204-324-6263 or visit

Do more bees mean more canola in the bin? Studies find it is beneficial to have a variety of pollinators — flies, wild bees and honeybees BY ROBIN BOOKER SASKATOON NEWSROOM

EDMONTON — Up to 95 percent of seed canola yield is attributable to bee pollination, but it’s not known how much pollinators influence yields in commercial hybrid canola crops. “This is where I come in,” Alberta Agriculture researcher Shelley Hoover told Murray Hartman’s Science-O-Rama in Edmonton April 6. “Part of my research program focuses on bees and bee health, but a substantial part of my work focuses on canola pollination and pollination management.” Many studies have been conducted into what bees contribute to canola yields, and their findings vary widely. Some studies show bees have little effect on hybrid canola yields, while others describe a strong relationship between the two. Hoover said a study that researcher Rachid Sabbahi conducted in Quebec in 2005 examined canola yield from plants pollinated three ways: • grown in a cage so the plants could only self fertilize • grown out of a cage so they could pollinate by wind but not bees • exposed to bee concentrations of .6 colonies per acre and 1.2 colonies per acre Plots that allowed wind pollination yielded better than plots that could only self-pollinate, and the plots where both wind and bees were allowed had a further increase in yield. “ They found the seed yield increase of 46 percent at a stocking rate of three hives per hectare (1.2 hives per acre), which works out close to 200 hives per quarter,” Hoover said. “If you extrapolate that out across the Prairies, if you can get 46 percent yield increase all the way

across the Prairies, we’re talking billions of dollars.” There are more beehives in Canada then ever before, but 25 million honeybee colonies would be needed to expose 21 million acres of canola at 1.2 colonies per acre. There are currently 490,00 colonies on the Prairies. The economics of having that many hives is unfeasible, but Hoover said there are opportunities to learn how to use bees more effectively. Ho over also talked about a Lethbridge study that looked at pollinator abundance in canola crops, their distribution across fields and how that relates to yield. There were three treatments: • canola plots had to self-pollinate without wind • wind was allowed but not pollinators • w i n d a n d p o l l i nat o r s w e re allowed Some of the plants in each treatment received maximum pollination by hand, while the rest of the plants were not hand pollinated. No significant yield differences were seen between hand-pollinated plants and unpollinated plants in terms of seed yield. “So that tells us in these open plots there is no difference between the maximum pollination that can be achieved with hand pollination and just what they are getting by being in the environment,” Hoover said. The treatment with wind but without bees also saw no difference between the maximum hand pollination and the yield benefit they received from wind alone. However, the treatments that used wind-excluding tents saw a significant difference between hand pollinated and un-pollinated plants. “So what that tells us is that there is a pollination deficit in this instance when wind is excluded,

she said. “When you exclude wind, the plants are not fully pollinated, but when you exclude bees, in this case they were.” Hoover said Lethbridge is a windy area and pollination from wind may play a disproportionally large role in the area. Calmer locations may not see the same results. A 2015 study that Lorenzo Marini supervised at the University of Padua in Italy used three hybrid

cultivars and three open pollinated cultivators. “Whether or not you put bees on the hybrid cultivars, it didn’t make a difference,” Hoover said. “With the open pollinated cultivators, there was a significant increase in yield when they added bees.” The study examined 43 fields over two years, but the mean field size was only 34 acres. The three European hybrid rapeseed varieties in the study, Catalina, E xcalibur, and PR45D01, responded differently to the addition of pollinators. “With Catalina if you add insects, you see an increase of yields over no insects, but in these other two varieties, you don’t,” Hoover said. Benefits of insects The study also found that insects can make up for some of the effects seen from not fertilizing in trials with zero fertilization. “In this case, at no fertilization the insects basically brought the yield up to the level that they would have seen if they had fertilized,” Hoover said. Insect pollination also affected seed size, which she said she has noticed in previous studies. “When you have abundant pollinators, you tend to get lots of seeds but they are smaller,” she said. An Alberta study examined the types of pollinators in the province’s commodity canola crops by looking at pollinator abundance, their abundance in relation to the field edge and if the abundance of the pollinators related to the nectar concentration in the flowers. There was regional variance in the types of pollinators, but flies and honeybees were the most common. “I’ve had growers tell me they like to have fields near feedlots because there are so many flies. They can be effective pollinators,” she said. Fields stocked with honeybees had more bees, but there was a large variation in how the bees were distributed across the field. “So you might have 300 visits per

hour to a metre squared, or you might have close to zero,” Hoover said. The further away from the hive, the less visits the canola blooms received from bees. “Even at 100 metres into the field, you see a decline, and by the time you get 500 or 400 metres into the field, it’s not significantly different than not stocking the field,” Hoover said. Canola plants in the middle of the fields also received fewer visits from wild pollinators because they have a shorter flight range than honeybees. A greater nectar reward was found at the centre of a canola field, but bees would take a nectar reward closer to the hive if they could. Another pollinator study held in the Lethbridge area examined the efficiency of bees in seed canola crops by looking at the amount of pollen deposited on the stigma of the flower. The study found that the amount of pollen deposits depended on where the bee came from. Bees coming from the male flowers were a lot more likely to deposit pollen in the next female flower it visited than bees that entered a female flower after being in a female flower. Hoover said they are now looking for ways to distribute bees to encourage them to switch from male flowers to female flowers. The study found no significant difference in the amount of deposited pollen between honeybees and flies and male leafcutter bees. Female leafcutter bees are the workhorses in terms of depositing pollen per individual bee visit, but bumble bees work longer hours and when it’s colder, Hoover said. As a result, it’s beneficial to have a variety of pollinators that work under different conditions. “As you increase the number of bee species, independent of bee abundance, you see greater yields just because the bees work the flowers differently,” she said.





Climate change has pros and cons Higher crop yields for some, lower for others BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

SWIFT CURRENT, Sask. — Climate change might benefit prairie farmers, but it won’t be a completely positive experience. Tom Jensen of the International Plant Nutrition Institute says the growing season might improve and heat units will likely rise, but in some cases drought and increased moisture might move hand in glove. He said trends are showing more dramatic warming in parts of the world that are located away from the coasts and in higher latitudes. In some cases, up to 4 C increases over the previous long-term averages can be expected for the mid and northern Prairies. “This is a very big deal for the Peace River region of Alberta and B.C.,” Jensen told last week’s Saskatchewan Institute of Agrology annual meeting in Swift Current. “We will see more canola grown. We will see bigger yields and greater reliability of those (higher crop yields).” However, southern regions of the Plains and Prairies might see fewer acres of the popular crop but potentially more lentils and juncea mustard. “And more corn and soybeans in southern areas,” he said. Jensen said producers will likely add more fall cereals to their rotations to take advantage of spring moisture. More overall moisture is predicted for the region, but most of that will likely arrive in winter. “The problem is that it is then prone to running off,” he said. Warmer summer temperatures and larger rainfalls replacing more occasional, smaller ones could reduce yields because of drought. However, warmer temperatures in the northern regions would reduce losses due to late and early frost. “And we will likely see an expansion of farmed land,” he said. “We are seeing land logged and converted (in the Peace River district).” The loss of boreal forest to insects and other environmental change will add to farmed land increases, he added. Irrigation acres in Saskatchewan might also expand as both drought potential and more growing capacity and frost-free days improve. “Fort Vermillion (in northern Alberta) is currently looking at a potential irrigation project using the Peace River,” he said. “That wouldn’t have happened 20 years ago.”

Ton Jensen of the International Plant Nutrition Institute says warmer temperatures in northern regions would reduce frost risks and increase growing capacity. However, warm, dry regions might become warmer and drier, reducing yields or changing the types of crops grown. | MICHAEL RAINE PHOTO

Trade may force animal traceback system U.S. access to the Chinese market will require an identification system that provides traceability to the farm of origin BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Demands from trading partners may force the United States to adopt a full livestock traceability system. “We tried to push the system based on animal disease. The economics of trade will move this system forward,” said Jack Shere, chief veterinary officer for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. The Chinese plan to audit the American system, but there are glitches. “What they are asking for is a bookend system that will trace back to where the animals are born to where they are slaughtered,” Shere said during the National Institute of Animal Agriculture’s annual meeting in Kansas City. Branded beef programs can provide this information and could perhaps be used to test the Chinese requirements, said John Clifford, chief trade adviser for the USDA.

A 2013 federal traceability rule allows each state to manage their own programs, which includes monitoring animal movement. Information gaps remain, which is not acceptable to countries such as China. “We agreed with the industry to have a voluntary system, but it is impacting trade. It is one of the obstacles with China,” Clifford said. A unified identification system that provides quick traceability is needed for U.S. feeder cattle destined for the Chinese market. “The industry as whole, and the states, need to be working on this issue to try and have an unified approach,” he said. “When that market opens, how many feeder cattle are going to be available to meet China’s requirements? There is probably not very many.” The industry also needs to be able to prove the tag was applied at the birth farm when the animal is presented at slaughter. Cattle younger than 18 months have been exempted from the

rules, but China may change that. Other countries are also requesting specific standards. Dairy cattle have been exported to Russia, which wants proof they were of American origin, said Shere.

We can either go there or we can sit and complain that they are putting a burden on us. If we want to be in these markets, we have got to develop a system. JOHN CLIFFORD USDA CHIEF TRADE ADVISER

“We can either go there or we can sit and complain that they are putting a burden on us,” Clifford said. “If we want to be in these markets, we have got to develop a system.” This proviso is linked to BSE, said Clifford, because investigators need to find the herd cohorts if a

cow is diagnosed with the disease. “If one of those calves happened to be a feeder that went to China, they want us to be able to identify that,” he said. It is an unlikely scenario, but the Chinese want all contingencies covered. Most of the other livestock species in the U.S. are achieving good traceability standards, said Clifford. The greatest downfall is timeliness when traceback is needed during a major disease outbreak. “It has been reduced from weeks and months to maybe a few weeks,” he said. “In the infectious disease process, that may not be fast enough.” Databases have improved since the rule was passed, and more states are moving from paper trails to electronic records to record interstate movement of animals, said Neil Hammerschmidt, the USDA’s program manager for animal disease traceability. Information retrieval times have been increased to 35 hours from more than 80 hours now that more

data is stored electronically. The government is also trying to encourage producers to use radio frequency ear tags that carry a unique identification number. RFID may have to be adopted to trace animals and move at the speed of commerce. Future funding for the states will be focused to advance such a program, said Shere. State veterinarians attending the NIAA meeting said there are problems in smaller processing facilities where tags are not correlated to carcasses at the time of slaughter. Positive cases of tuberculosis in cows have been detected and no herd of origin could be found. Clifford said USDA employees must get into plants and make sure the tags are correlated to any animals found with serious defects. “We have to have an official ID system that we can totally depend on,” Clifford said. “We need to go into the plant and pull the tag and trace it back to the farm of origin.”

Improved sainfoin takes on queen of forages Research shows new AAC Mountainview variety is able to compete with alfalfa in second and third cuts BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

The super hero that can fight cattle bloat is dressed in pink. When seeded with alfalfa, pinkblossomed sainfoin can prevent cattle losses while also providing nutritious forage. Trouble is, the old varieties of sainfoin donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand up to second and third cuts and are gradually overcome by alfalfa. No sainfoin, no bloat protection. A new variety of the legume, AAC Mountainview, appears to have

overcome that trouble. Developed by Agriculture Canada research scientist and forage breeder Sur ya Achar ya, AAC Mountainview regrows after cutting and survives well with alfalfa. As well, it will prevent bloat in grazing cattle if it makes up 20 to 25 percent of the hay stand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what our research indicates,â&#x20AC;? said Acharya. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When it goes below that, then the animals have a tendency to bloat. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have access to both the plants at the same time.â&#x20AC;? Acharya said Mountainview and

another similar variety yet to be released were developed by selecting for regrowth, high yield and survival in alfalfa stands. Alfalfa, the so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;queen of forages,â&#x20AC;? is grown on 6.4 million acres in Western Canada. It is quick to establish, provides high forage yield and quality and is highly palatable to cattle. Efforts to develop bloat-free alfalfa have been elusive, said Acharya, so he turned his attention to sainfoin and improve upon Nova, the most common variety. He calls it his pet project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful, but it is not just good to look at,â&#x20AC;? he said in a recent webinar organized by the Beef Cattle Research Council. He said NorthStar Seed Ltd., which distributes AAC Mountainview, has limited amounts of seed left for this year. However, those who obtained some for seeding this year might be able to lightly graze it toward the end of the season if it is planted early and properly. Acharya recommends that sainfoin be seeded in alternate rows with alfalfa at half-inch to threequarter inch deep. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Broadcasting does not work. Make sure everybody understands that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to plan to drill it. Seed it in between rows (of alfalfa) if you can do it. That is the best. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very old stand of alfalfa, use a drill that can cut through the root zone and put the seed in contact with the soil.â&#x20AC;? He warned against mixing alfalfa and sainfoin seed for planting. Alfalfa seed is smaller, so it tends

Alta. research stations in new hands BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

A three way partnership among the University of Alberta, the Alberta government and ranchers will oversee the historic Onefour and Stavely research stations. Agriculture Canada announced the closure of the sites in 2013, so the three new partners will now mind the land in southern Alberta. A memorandum of understanding has been signed with the university so that long-term studies on grazing, land stewardship, plant life and wildlife can be maintained through the Rangeland Institute, which already runs the Kinsella and Matthies ranches. The Onefour site, which was established in 1927, is considered the birthplace of rangeland science in Canada. The addition of these properties means long-term studies can continue on arid grasslands in southeastern Alberta and the foothills fescue region, said Edward Bork, who is the Mattheis Chair in Rangeland Ecology and Management and director of the Rangeland Research Institute at the U of A. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see these four stations as


important â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;living laboratoriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in which we can test a broad range of production and sustainability questions at a wide range of scales, including the landscape level,â&#x20AC;? he wrote in an email. A draft management plan is coming and will maintain the operation of the landscape, said Graham Statt of Alberta Environment. A grazing stewardship plan has been in place for both sites for the last year. The Onefour Grazing Association has eight members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a generational piece of land, particularly Onefour. That is the birthplace of range science in Alberta and probably a lot of western North America,â&#x20AC;? said Statt.

Onefour is 17 quarters of federally deeded land. The province is taking over 15 quarters of undeveloped land, and an old town site on two quarters will remain in federal hands. The town site includes old buildings and three garbage sites, which must be cleaned up. The province considers them a liability that it does not want to acquire, said Statt. The provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s South Saskatchewan Regional Land Use Plan provides for conservation of heritage range lands, and the province considers Stavely and Onefour to be of high conservation value. Grazing leases and terms of tenure can be lengthened, while conservation goals are highlighted under legislation. Grazing is considered to be important to the longterm sustainability of the landscape. Alberta has two heritage rangelands in Alberta â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Black Creek Heritage Rangeland and the OH Ranch Heritage Rangeland â&#x20AC;&#x201D; while a third will be established in the Pekisko area under direction of the South Saskatchewan Regional Plan.





Inefficient vaccination Premium needed for raising niche beef program leads to rise There are many ways to produce beef, but production costs must be considered in clostridial diseases BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU



Clostridial vaccines are effective if administered properly and followed with booster shots


ases of clostridial diseases are increasing, particularly in housed dairy cattle. Why is this happening? An alarming number of dairy and beef producers still don’t vaccinate for clostridial disease, vaccinate only sporadically or forget about giving booster shots. Vaccines for clostridial diseases are the cheapest on the market, so cost is not an obstacle to developing a routine vaccination protocol with a veterinarian. The choice of vaccine may vary slightly depending on the clostridial organisms prevalent in your area. Clostridial organisms are sporeproducing bacteria that live in the soil and can last for 50 years or more. The spores are often ingested. Bruising, handling, liver damage and myriad other problems can trigger the disease. Survival is rare even with vigorous treatment. Cattle can be protected if they are vaccinated with the multivalent clostridial vaccines, up to a nineway approved for beef and dairy in Canada. Label directions must be followed. Dairies also see the sporadic hemorrhagic bowel syndrome, also known as jejunal hemorrhagic syndrome. Clostridium perfringens A is thought to be involved, but unfortunately no vaccine is licensed in Canada. Some dairy farms are using a vaccine specifically for this condition under an emergency drug release protocol. Ontario dairy operations are seeing more cases of clostridial disease that are caused primarily by Clostridium septicum and Clostridium chauvei. Outbreaks occur annually in calves on pasture, so we know it is in the soil in abundance in some locations, but how is soil from the fields getting into dairy barns? Exposure is possible if heifers are pastured at any time in their lives. As well, baled hay often contains dirt thrown up by pickups and pocket gophers drag lots of soil to the surface. Dr. Mac Littlejohn of the Kirkton & St. Mary’s veterinary group in Ontario says he has seen an increased incidence since the advent of the disc bines versus sickle haybines, most likely because more dirt is thrown into the swath.

Excavating or dirt brought in on the tires of farm equipment and other vehicles can contain clostridial spores. A critical mass of spores is usually necessary before we see clinical disease, which so often leads to sudden death of the cow. An autopsy is necessary to confirm it, which is why it is imperative to have a veterinarian conduct them on sudden deaths. We need the sample for BSE submission, but most importantly we need to find out the actual cause of death. This also helps us in our vaccination decisions. Dairy producers use more synchronization programs such as Ov-sync or Co-sync, which require GnRh and prostaglandin shots. The labels on all prostaglandins warn of the rare possibility that bruising created by administering the prostaglandin will initiate a clostridial myositis. These can occur in almost outbreak form in unexposed dairy cattle. Veterinarians used to recommend boostering clostridial coverage every five years, but that is often increased now to every year be-cause of the increasing incidence of clostridial redwater deaths in the West and concentrated pockets of clostridial spores in pastures across Canada. It’s even done twice a year in cases where redwater is prevalent. A far m’s herd veter inar ian should review clostridial prevention efforts and make sure there are no gaps in clostridial coverage. Make sure to booster young calves at weaning, and remember to do mature cows, even if they spend most of their lives inside the barn. In the dairy barn, some herd veterinarians booster the entire herd at once. A short-term decrease in milk production is expected when any vaccine is given to dairy cattle, so most producers give it in the dry off period. The vaccine can be bought from 10 to 125-dose sizes, so there is a vaccine that fits all situations. Some clostridial vaccines also contain histophilus, which may be prescribed for calves. These vaccines are usually approved for organic beef and milking programs, but this should be confirmed for the specific vaccine. A rough poll that I conducted with veterinarians and herd owners found that dairy cows were the most frequently missed, followed by beef herd bulls. Calves are more commonly vaccinated at least once, but the booster shot is often missed or given months late, creating a gap when the calves are susceptible. With spores lasting as long as they do, the only way to prevent clostridial disease is to vaccinate. Clostridial vaccines are close to 100 percent effective if administered properly and followed up with boosters at the right time. Roy Lewis works as a technical services veterinarian part time with Merck Animal Health in Alberta.

Feedlot health expert Matt May priced beef at his local Costco store in mid-March. He found that organic hamburger was $16.66 per kilogram, which was 119.5 percent more than $7.59 per kg hamburger produced in conventional ways. May, who is the feedlot nutrition and production consultant for Feedlot Health Management Services in Okotoks, Alta., said cost is obviously a factor when comparing the two types of beef production, but it’s not the only one that consumers consider when buying beef. He presented data March 16 from the International Consumer Attitudes Study, which found that 95 percent of food buyers say taste, cost and nutrition are their priorities when buying meat. Another four percent indicated luxury, organic or local as priorities. As for the remaining one percent, “we do have a fringe group that are maybe anti-production or wanting to limit a lot of the things that we do … but I really want to focus on the 99 percent.” May said it is important to provide consumers with choice, whether it is conventional, organic or natural beef. However, that means calculating the costs or efficiency losses associated with sup-


plying those products. He said research and technology have led to many tools in the cattle production toolbox: • genetics • feed additives • ionophores • beta agonists • implants • antibiotics • parasiticides • vaccines Each of those has changed cattle production practices, but some are now controversial. “Losing a lot of these tools is what really scares me as we talk about sustainability and feeding that ever-growing population, especially if those consumers want to consume beef and other products,” May said. He showed results from two small-pen feedlot studies, one on steers and another on heifers. Results from the steer study

showed that animals raised conventionally using feed additives and implants (Rumensin, Tylan, Optaflexx and Revalor-200) were almost 100 pounds heavier at finish with better dressing percentage and higher carcass weight. There was no difference in animal health, said May. Similar results were seen in the heifer study, with those that were given feed additives and implants (Rumensin, Tylan, MGA, Optiflexx and Revelor-200) showing better feed efficiency and higher weights. May said there is a place for natural beef as part of available choice. Producers need to understand the higher cost of producing animals for that market so they know the premium prices required to make it cost-neutral or profitable. One group of animals in both the steer and heifer studies was given Oleobiotech, a blend of essential oils and spices marketed by ProActive Nutrients. May said cattle that were given natural product and no other additional feed additives or implants showed better performance than the control group and had fewer liver abscesses. “It looks to be potentially beneficial,” he said. However, further research on a larger scale would be needed for true evaluation.

Sick of worrying about your surface leases becoming worthless if an oil and gas company goes broke? An investment company wants to buy them from you. “This is a good time (for us to buy and farmers to sell) because there are a lot of defaults,” said Stephen Johnston, a partner in the company that owns Surface Capital, which is offering to buy oil and gas leases in Saskatchewan and Alberta. “We think it’ll be well-received by the farming community because they clearly will not want to manage the next three years of constant defaults by oil and gas companies.” Surface Capital is trying to amass a portfolio of surface leases and hold it as an investment for its shareholders. It is offering to buy the lease from the farmer, rather than the land, for an up-front price. The company would then collect the lease payments from the oil and gas company that originally signed the lease. At the end of the lease, the oil and gas company would still be responsible for reclaiming the land and returning it to the farmer. The company has lots of business it could do, considering there are about 700,000 leases in Saskatchewan and Alberta estimated to be worth $10 billion. Johnston said the current lease defaults are a good opportunity for his company to get into an almost non-existent market for lease rights. Many farmers are getting anxious that they could suddenly face a payment suspension if their lessee goes broke. The company says there is also an advantage in receiving an up-front payment for lease rights because the farmer will likely be able to

700,000 leases worth $10 billion claim the money as a capital gain rather than as income, which is how lease payments are regarded. Surface Capital sees the leases as a good investment because it can combine hundreds or thousands of them to create an aggregate risk far lower than that held by a farmer, who might see a 100 percent loss of payments.

The reclamation obligation remains with the oil and gas company, Johnston said. If the company goes bankrupt, reclamation costs should be covered by the bonds and orphan well funds that already exist. Johnston’s management company, Rhocore Investment Trust, controls smaller companies with

Sharing technology, expertise seen as avenue to sustainable agriculture BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Agriculture ministers from more than 40 countries meeting in Paris last week agreed that stronger trade ties will help feed a growing population. They also urged quick ratification of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between Canada and the European Union. Canada has said the agreement is likely to be implemented next year. Federal Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay said the meet-

ing, held by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, discussed CETA but did not talk about of the Doha round of World Trade Organization talks, which many believe is dead. He said the ministers “generally discussed a market-based agricultural system to make sure it’s a fair and open multilateral trading system” that is efficient, profitable, environmentally healthy and creates food security. MacAulay also met for bilateral talks with his EU counterpart, Phil Hogan, and French minister


Stephane Le Foll. “I stressed to both ministers the importance of science-based

decision-making on regulatory issues,” he told reporters in a conference call from Paris April 8. MacAulay said ministers and officials discussed how better policies could achieve a productive, sustainable and resilient global food system. Sharing expertise in science and innovative technology can strengthen trade ties and support sustainable agricultural practices, he said. “My message to Canada’s customers is clear: Canada can meet their demands for safe, high-quali-

ty sustainable food,” MacAulay said. At the meeting, Canada and the EU also expanded their organic equivalency agreement to include wine. Wine certified as organic in either Canada or the EU can now be labelled and sold in both markets. The agreement had previously allowed the EU to import only products that were grown or processed entirely in Canada. These products can now contain organic ingredients from other countries.





When to sell grain depends if price tops production cost Monsanto puts mergers, MANAGING THE FARM purchases on back burner Company changes focus from acquisitions to partnerships in research and development CHIC AG O, Ill. (Reuters) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Monsanto has pulled itself out of the mergers and acquisitions flurry in the seeds and agrochemicals industry, nearly a year after making a bid for Syngenta. The company, which also reported a drop in second quarter earnings, now sees its best deal-making opportunities in smaller acquisitions, licensing deals and partnerships, said chief executive officer Hugh Grant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We now see this (industry rationalization) translating into further R&D (research and development) or commercial partnerships for which we are uniquely positioned to participate and no longer see large-scale M&A as a likely opportunity,â&#x20AC;? Grant said. Monsantoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move for Syngenta triggered a period of heightened M&A activity in the industry, which six large companies have long dominated. Syngenta agreed to be acquired by ChemChina for $43 billion in February, while Dow Chemical and DuPont struck a $130 billion merger last year. Low crop prices and belt tightening by farmers have pressured prices and prompted companies to consider acquisitions. Monsanto, the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest seed company, continued to tout itself as the industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;partner of choice.â&#x20AC;? After its bid for Syngenta failed, the company approached Bayer AG and expressed interest in its crop science unit, including a potential acquisition worth more than $30 billion. Farmers in the United States have been spending less on crop inputs as grain prices hover near five-year lows and incomes have fallen to their lowest since 2002. This has forced Monsanto and DuPont Pioneer to offer the steepest discounts in at least six years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Monsanto every year has a lineup of new products that allows them to charge more than the prior year. This is an environment where thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little tougher of a conversation to have,â&#x20AC;? said Matt Arnold, materials analyst with Edward Jones. Net income attributable to the company fell to $1.06 billion, or $2.41 per share, in the quarter ended Feb. 29, from $1.43 billion, or $2.92 per share, a year earlier. Earnings on an ongoing basis were $2.42 per share. Monsanto reiterated its ongoing 2016 earning per share guidance of $4.40 to $5.10 after lowering the outlook last month amid currency headwinds and heightened pricing competition, Net sales fell 12.8 percent to $4.53 billion. Analysts had expected a profit of $2.44 on revenue of $4.76 billion, according to Thomson Reuters.



ere is the million dollar question: when should you sell your grain? Get it just right and you are a genius and the envy of your friends and neighbours. Get it wrong and you beat yourself up with coulda, shoulda ,woulda: if only you would have known that this or that was going to happen. The chances of selling your grain

at the peak price in any given year are not good. However, many producers chase the top every year, sometimes with success and sometimes without. I have been asked this question many times as an agriculture business adviser. In the early years of my career, I would usually shrug it off and explain that I was not a marketing coach nor a psychic. However, now I have found a response that gets producers thinking. I answer the question with another: what is your cost per bushel? Some producers can answer this with a high degree of confidence, but most do not know the answer. Many farmers believe that $10 per bu. is a bad price for canola because the price was $15 per bu. two years

ago. That is true, but what if you knew for sure your cost of production was $7.90 per bu.? Would that change your opinion? Knowing your operationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cost of production can make a huge difference in helping you decide when to sell your grain. It eliminates much of the anxiety of wondering where the top will be and if you should sell today or hold on. Knowing your costs helps you know what prices result in a profit. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all most producers expect: that their hard work from the past year results in a profit. Knowing your cost of production is an important piece of the marketing puzzle. You should also spend a lot of time reading and following the markets. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world of grain farming

requires you to stay on top of the markets and pay attention to what is happening on a daily basis. If that is not for you, then I recommend speaking to a marketing coach to get some help because things change so fast in the global trading environment. And whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first question a marketing coach will ask you? Yes, it will be, what is your cost of production? A good business adviser can determine and update this at several stages â&#x20AC;&#x201D;crop planning, mid-year and after harvest â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to provide you with the necessary information to make marketing decisions.

THE HEART OF EVERY ROTARY COMBINE BEATS RED. Strip away the paint, ignore the logos and take a look inside any rotary combine. You’ll find the single rotor technology we introduced over 35 years ago. But unless it has more bells and whistles with fewer belts and chains, it’s not a Case IH Axial-Flow ® combine. You’ll get more quality grain in the tank while reducing your maintenance. And our SCR-only engine design provides more power while using less fuel. Which is why the Axial-Flow rotor is at the heart of our harvesting expertise. Learn more at
