U.S. organic sector rejects all biotech Strict approach concerns Canadian observers



Organic agriculture needs to reconsider its hard-line stance against biotechnology, says University of Saskatchewan plant scientist Steve Shirtliffe. Otherwise, he says, people in the sector are in danger of becoming Luddites. In November, the U.S. National Organic Standards Board said it was rejecting all new forms of biotechnology for plant breeding, including genome editing and gene silencing.

Proposed neonic ban finds farmer acceptance BRANDON BUREAU

Grain Farmers of Ontario has bitterly sparred with the provincial government for more than two years over regulations restricting the use of neonicotinoid insecticides. The GFO called the Ontario government “anti-science” and “anti-agriculture” and even took the province to court. However, when the federal government proposed in late November to ban one neonicotinoid and investigate two other products, the GFO response was more restrained. Mark Brock, GFO chair and a grower from Staffa, Ont., said the

QUICK FACTS Imidacloprid is registered for a wide range of crops, but in Canada it’s mostly used on potatoes, fruit, vegetables and other horticulture crops. Growers of grains and oilseeds rely more on thiamethoxam, a Syngenta neonicotinoid, and clothianidin, a Bayer product. Those two neonics, applied as seed treatments, are used on most of the canola and corn acres in Canada and a portion of the soybean crop. organization accepts Health Canada’s decision. “As an organization, we looked to the federal government as our agency, Health Canada and the

PMRA (Pest Management Regulatory Agency), to provide a science based approach to the regulatory process of these chemicals,” he said. “I would be deemed a hypocrite, I think, if I were to throw Health Canada (and) PMRA under the bus.” On Nov. 23, Health Canada released a proposal to phase out the use of imidacloprid, a neonicotinoid insecticide used around the globe. The department said the ban is necessary because water bodies near agricultural land have unacceptably high concentrations of the insecticide. SEE NEONIC BAN, PAGE 5

Ag labour shortage called critical BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

The labour shortage in beef production could reach 12,000 workers by 2025, says a new report on Canada’s agricultural labour market. The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association said the industry needs to find a solution as soon as possible. “This is an issue we need to get moving on. Every day we hold back on this we’re losing sales. We’re seeing people balking at (expanding) their operations,” said Dennis Laycraft, CCA executive vice-president. The Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council (C AHRC) released a research paper last week titled: Agriculture 2025: How the Sector’s Labour Challenges Will Shape its Future. CAHRC based the report on a survey of more than 1,000 employers in agriculture, meetings with industry leaders, webinars and six focus groups with ag sector representatives. Of all the commodities within agriculture, western Canadian products may be most affected. “Grain and oilseed and beef producers will experience the largest increases in their labour gaps, and account for much of the increase in the labour gap for the sector as a whole,” the report noted. In its forecast, CAHRC predicted: • Canada’s ag industry had a shortfall of 59,000 employees in 2014 and the shortage could grow to 114,000 workers by 2025. • The labour shortage in grain and oilseed production was about 5,000 workers in 2014. That may expand to 17,000 employees in 2025. • In 2014, the labour shortage in beef production was around 3,000 employees. That may grow to 12,000 by 2025. Debra Hauer, CAHRC project manager, said production and exports of Canadian beef, grains and oilseeds are expected to climb over the next decade. Therefore, the beef and grains sectors will need to hire more people. If beef production does expand in Canada as projected, cattle ranchers could struggle with labour issues because thousands of employees may soon leave the industry. “By 2025, just under one-third of the segment’s current domestic workforce is expected to retire,” the report noted. “In combination with weak inflows of new workers, this will result in beef producers experiencing the largest decline in their labour supply within agriculture over the forecast period, with supply in 2025 expected to be 17 percent below where it stood in 2014.” With the labour shortfall likely to continue to get worse, beef producers will likely need to rely on immigrants to fill the vacancies. However, ranchers want stable, long-term employees and hope to have that wish granted with federal changes to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program expected in December.

Barry Johnson combines his last 200 acres of flax near the south shore of Quill Lakes, west of Wynyard, Sask., Nov. 25. He said this is the longest harvest he’s experienced. “It started in August and it looks like it will go into December.” Early snow and relentless rain has challenged growers this fall. “I wasn’t planning on buying a new combine this fall, but it was either buy a four-wheel drive combine or don’t combine,” Johnson said. Saskatchewan producers had combined 95 percent of the crop as of Nov. 21, while harvest was 87 percent complete in Alberta as of Nov. 15, and the latest crop report issued by Manitoba Agriculture Oct. 17 had 92 percent of the crop harvested, although much of the province has seen favourable harvesting conditions since then. | ROBIN BOOKER PHOTO


Health Canada’s insecticide ban angers fruit, vegetable growers The imidacloprid ban may force the use of more harmful, less effective pesticides: growers’ association BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Grain Farmers of Ontario has faith in Health Canada and its process to evaluate pesticides, but another Ontario farm group has a starkly different opinion. A representative of the Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Growers’ Association said Health Canada’s proposal to ban imidacloprid, a Bayer insecticide, is a blunder. “In my humble opinion, if it’s like anything they (Health Canada) have produced in the last couple of years, there will be flaws,” said Craig Hunter, research and crop protection specialist with the association. “It (imidacloprid) has a really good record, and this whole thing was done in total secrecy,” he said. “I haven’t seen anything that would lead me to say that the use that’s on the label is either causing a problem or is unsustainable.” Health Canada issued its plan last week to ban imidacloprid, a neonicotinoid insecticide widely used by fruit and vegetable growers across the country. Health Canada said the ban is necessary because water bodies near agricultural land have unacceptably high concentrations of the insecticide. The levels of imidacloprid are a risk to aquatic

insects, such as midges and mayflies, and animals that rely on those insects for food. Hunter said imidacloprid, a Bayer product, was once the most commonly used insecticide in the world. Fruit and vegetable growers in Canada apply the product on crops such as field tomatoes, sweet corn and peas. “It’s used on a great many fruit and vegetable crops and ornamentals.” The Bayer Canada website says imidacloprid has been an “important product for potato growers for over 10 years.” Many potato producers apply it in the soil or as a seed treatment to control beetles and other pests. Hunter said the case for a ban should be definitive, considering how Canadian growers of special crops are dependent on the insecticide. “I haven’t seen enough proof that the levels they’re finding, in the environment, are in fact real, that (the results) are, in fact, representative of all the use areas. And most importantly, even though they claim they have some numbers, they made their determination on the basis of a model,” he said. “They put numbers into a model and then said it was unsustainable.”

HORTICULTURAL PRODUCERS DECRY NEONIC BAN Water monitoring data for Health Canada’s evaluation of imidacloprid came mostly from Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan. Based on that testing data, imidacloprid concentrations were higher and exceeded safe thresholds for aquatic insects more often in water bodies near: • greenhouses in Ontario • vegetable crops in Ontario (imidacloprid applied as a seed treatment, foliar spray and soil applications) • potato and mixed vegetable crops in Quebec (applied as seed treatment, foliar spray and soil applications) Health Canada said in a summary of its decision that it relied on environmental modelling and data from water bodies. “Robust environmental monitoring from several areas of intense agricultural activity in Ontario and Quebec further support these findings as imidacloprid is detected frequently in s u r f a c e w at e r at l e v e l s w e l l above concentrations that may result in toxic effects to insects. These regions include both outdoor mixed agricultural uses (for example, potatoes and vegetables) as well as greenhouse uses.” Hunter, who has asked Health Canada for its complete report on

• Health Canada said risk to aquatic insects isn’t associated with a particular method of application, but monitoring data is likely an “underestimate of actual exposure, as sampling typically does not capture peak concentrations.” Source: Health Canada

imidacloprid, said it’s difficult to replace such a chemical because specialty crops are a relatively small slice of agriculture. “It’s a huge deal for growers of all the minor crops in all of Canada because a registrant who may already have a product (insecticide) registered for corn, canola, soybeans … would have to spend a lot of their own money to develop the data to register (the insecticide) for all our (specialty) crops,” he said. “It (a ban) also means increased use of other pesticides, maybe not as effective. The net environmental (impact) could be higher.”

REJECTING BIOTECH » CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 “The National Organic Standards Board has made clear that all kinds of genetic engineering are to be excluded from ‘organic,’ ” said Jaydee Hanson, a senior policy analyst with the Center for Food Safety. The standards board makes recommendations for organic farming policy in America, but the U.S. Depar tment of Agr iculture’s National Organic Program has the final say on regulations. If the USDA agrees with the standards board, Canada would likely have to adopt a similar policy on biotechnology because the U.S. is the major market for organic food. Organic farmers have refused to grow genetically modified crops for years, but this rebuff of the next generation of biotechnology comes at a unique time in plant science. Many experts believe new tools, such as gene editing, could revolutionize plant science and help researchers develop crop traits more quickly and efficiently. “Some emerging genetic engineering technologies have the potential to create novel plant varieties that are hard to distinguish genetically from plants produced through conventional breeding or processes that occur in nature,” the U.S. National Academy of Sciences said in a report released earlier this year. Shirtliffe, who studies organic and sustainable production at the U of S, said the organic sector needs to move beyond its anti-biotech posture. “Is the organic industry going to firmly ensconce itself in the Luddite camp?” he said. “We’ve had GMOs for, how many years has it been, over 20 years. The world hasn’t stopped turning.

Horns haven’t grown out of anybody’s head.” The hostility to biotech might be attributed to larger issues, such as the anti-corporate and anti-globalization sentiment within the organic sector. However, Shirtliffe thinks organic should be more than a protest movement. “Organic has a lot of really good things going for it,” he said. “We’re bringing a lot of good things to agriculture, but to have it be labelled as just being ‘anti-something’ is not a very good message. You should be talking about what you’re for, not what you’re against.” Rob Wallbridge, board member with the Organic Council of Ontario, is also concerned about the National Organic Standards Board decision. Turning away from all forms of biotechnology may not be sustainable. “Somewhere down the road there’s going to have to be a more nuanced approach to it,” he said. “We’re seeing these technologies multiply and they’re becoming democratized, where they’re no longer just the purview of the big, multi-national corporations.… It’s going to become increasingly difficult to know where to draw the line.” As an example, Shirtliffe isn’t sure why organic leaders oppose beneficial biotech innovations such as Golden Rice, a variety of rice fortified with Vitamin A. “Organic has been getting some bad press because (people) bring up the Golden Rice issue,” he said. “It’s really hard to argue against traits like that.” Another technology that’s difficult to reject is a recently developed tool called CRISPR, which allows researchers to precisely delete or

insert a gene in a plant’s genome. Many scientists say CRISPR is an elegant form of mutagenesis. In mutagenesis, scientists scramble a plant’s DNA with chemicals to generate a random mutation. Organic farmers grow crop varieties developed through mutagenesis, so CRISPR should also be acceptable, Shirtliffe said. “Let’s be rational,” he said. “CRISPR, you could argue, is a well-informed mutagenesis.” The National Organic Standards Board said it’s opposing the new technologies because crops and food could be entering the marketplace without “adequate health and environmental safety assessment.” That might be part of the logic, but the organic sector may also be worried about consumer response. “A segment of consumers that support organic have a visceral negative reaction when it comes to genetic engineering,” Wallbridge said. “The organic value proposition covers a lot more than simply nonGMO, but I think that’s kind of become a flashpoint … for consumer concerns,” Shirtliffe would like the organic sector to evaluate new innovations on a “trait by trait” basis rather than focus on the scientific process that generated the crop trait. Earlier this year, he made such a suggestion at an organic conference. “I said it and the room just went silent. Not a person said anything.” But later, after the session, several people spoke to Shirtliffe and privately expressed their support “I said it to just to get a conservation going. Let’s talk about this.”

Agribition weathers move to new facilities Organizers say attendance for 2016 show is up from previous year BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

A few highlights and a few hitches characterized a transitional year for Canadian Western Agribition last week. The ability to use half of the new International Trade Centre for cattle, horses and sheep meant the show could accommodate more than 2,000 head even after the demolition of older barns. “I haven’t had one negative comment all week on it. Maybe it’s my filter, but the exhibitors are just thrilled with the building,” said Agribition president Stewart Stone. “They’re actually more excited about the potential of the building once it’s done.” Construction should be complete for next year. Plans call for the International Business Centre to move into the mezzanine area, and the show ring to move from Exhibition Stadium. The stadium was to be demolished last year but was left standing and is now slated to go down in the spring.

I haven’t had one negative comment all week on it. Maybe it’s my filter, but the exhibitors are just thrilled with the building. STEWART STONE AGRIBITION PRESIDENT

Final attendance figures won’t be known for a few weeks, but Stone said organizers believed the numbers were up. “Our international component was very strong this year,” he said. “We had over 1,200 guests from 66 countries, and we had 200 registered buyers from 16 countries. My sense is that this will be one of our best years ever for international sales.” That includes genetics and short-line equipment sales. “It is clear that the show is strong and continues to grow CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE






On the second day a bull calf escaped the tie-outs area and headed west down a busy street during the morning commute. It was successfully caught and returned to the grounds. At the pro rodeo’s second performance, a bareback horse went down after injuring its neck or spine and was euthanized after being removed from the arena.

The levels of imidacloprid are considered a risk to aquatic insects, such as midges and mayflies, and animals that rely on those insects for food. Health Canada is proposing a three-year phase-out of imidacloprid, or a five-year phase-out in cases where farmers have no alternatives for pest control. The department also announced a special review of two other neonicotinoid insecticides: thiamethoxam, a Syngenta product, and clothianidin, a Bayer product. Department scientists want to know if those neonics are a threat to aquatic insects. Bayer said in a statement that it is disappointed in the decision. Brock said he has faith in Health Canada. “From our standpoint, we want to be engaged and supportive of this process of review and phasing out of that one product and the review of the other two,” he said. “It does hinge on safety of people and the environment, and they’ve identified a risk here.” The tenor of Brock’s comments are distinct from the GFO’s crusade against the Ontario government, which introduced regulations in 2015 to cut the use of neonic seed treatments in corn and soybeans by 80 percent. The province said the measure was needed to protect bees, but the GFO said the regulations were unscientific because there wasn’t sufficient evidence linking neonics to bee colony losses. In the case of imidacloprid, the PMRA eventually agreed with the GFO. In January, it reported that the insecticide does not put bees at risk. In a teleconference with media, Health Canada officials made it clear, many times, that the proposed ban is because of aquatic invertebrates, not bees. The science may eventually show that neonics are not a threat to bees, but with insecticides collecting in water and posing a potential threat to birds and wildlife that feed on aquatic insects, all this may change the broader conversation about neonics and could force producers to change their practices. Integrated pest management specialists and environmental groups have criticized farmers for using neonic seed treatments as insurance or as a prophylactic, without evaluating if there actually is a risk from crop pests. John Gavloski, a Manitoba Agriculture entomologist, said the agricultural industry is overusing neonics. He told growers almost a year ago, at Manitoba Ag Days, that neonics accumulating in surface water could provoke a regulatory crackdown. He is also frustrated that neonic seed treatments are sometimes being used for the wrong reason — research suggests that certain neonics improve seedling vigour. “This is an insecticide,” Gavloski said. “If you’re overusing the product, you could be shooting yourself in the foot.” The proposed phase-out of imidacloprid is not final. There will be a 90-day comment period, and Health Canada is planning a forum with industry stakeholders to discuss other potential solutions.

Chief executive officer Chris Lane, who took on the role last summer, said ticket sales for rodeo and jousting surpassed last year’s totals, and livestock sales were strong. The top seller was a two-thirds interest in a Hereford bull calf from Haroldson’s Polled Herefords of Wawota, Sask., selling for $70,000 to Medonte Highland Polled Herefords from Orillia,

Ont., and NCX Polled Herefords of Westlock, Alta. The high-selling bison was a $35,000 bull calf consigned by Bison Spirit Ranch of Oak Lake, Man., and purchased by Greg Pagan of Snowden, Sask. In the reformatted horse sale, Kassidy Williamson of Mankota, Sask., consigned the high seller, a three-year-old mare that went for $17,500 to Frehlick Quarter Horses of Estevan, Sask. Commercial cattle prices were

lower than 2015, reflecting the current market. The top seller, a repeat of last year’s transaction, was a pen of five bred heifers from Mebs Ranch at Broadview, Sask., purchased by Palmer Charolais of Bladworth, Sask. The difference was the price: last year the heifers went for $5,000 each and this year they sold for $3,950. Lane said Agribition staff and others handled two stressful incidents capably and professionally.

Hog producers told to brace for tough times ahead Despite the recent rally, expert expects price drop BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Producers shouldn’t assume the lows of the current hog markets are behind them, says a risk management specialist for Hams Marketing. The recent rally in the futures market comes ahead of a threeweek danger period in the middle of December that often challenges producers. “It’s remarkable. I can’t really explain the recent run-up, upturn here,” said Tyler Fulton of Hams. “It’s tough to reconcile.” That’s because futures prices have diverged from cash prices, suggesting futures prices aren’t necessarily the best indication of true cash market, supply-anddemand conditions.

Hog explosion threatens profits The U.S. growth in production is not keeping pace with exports, and analyst warns of a price correction BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

C ALGARY — China and the United States are both increasing hog production, and that has major implications for the Canadian pork industry, says an agricultural analyst. Brett Stuart, chief executive officer of Global AgriTrends in Denver, predicts that China will add 1.7 million tonnes of pork production next year and reduce its imports as a result. At the same time, the U.S. is building new hog barns and processing capacity, the latter reaching 46,500 head per day by 2018. Americans expect to export more pork, but it isn’t clear where that export market will be. Stuart, a former lead economist for the U.S. Meat Export Federation who presented a global outlook at the Alberta Pork annual meeting Nov. 9, said following production problems two years ago that caused pork shortages, hog production became profitable in China last year, and profits there are tax

free. Nobody knows how many pigs are in China, but money will drive expansion. “At one hundred bucks a head, you’ll put a sow in the bedroom,” said Stuart, in reference to reports that people raise pigs in apartment buildings in China if there is money to be made. A one-third reduction in China’s pork imports amounts to about 650,000 tonnes, said Stuart. The country imported large amounts of pork this year, but that level is unlikely to be matched next year. “We face some major risk from this China bubble,” Stuart said. As for America, the U.S. Department of Agriculture predicts pork production will rise in 2017, but per capita consumption in the U.S. is not expected to increase. Neither are pork exports to any great degree. “When I’m saying we’re going to have four to five percent production growth, I’m also saying we’re going to have .7 percent export growth. And you’ve got to export five percent more for every one percent of production increase,”



said Stuart. “We are not keeping pace with exports next year. I don’t know where we can find a market to absorb this. We are looking over the edge of a cliff in the hog markets.” Stuart said he believes there is a 50-50 chance of a major correction in December hog futures as the market reacts to excess slaughter capacity but limited export outlets. In Canada, the pork industry is showing minor expansion, but its export growth of late has all been to China, and now China may be importing less. Stuart said Canada runs the risk of evolving into a piglet supplier to U.S. feeders and packers unless it secures profitability for producers on finished pork. While the U.S. focuses on chain speed, Canada could differentiate itself and increase exports by catering to niche markets. That way it would avoid head-to-head competition with the U.S. hog production juggernaut. He also said Canada is in a better position than the U.S. to make bilateral trade deals. Brexit might prove an ideal opportunity to

increase exports, he added. “Pull them aside and cut a deal,” he said of the United Kingdom. “You may get something much better … and Britain is a fantastic pork market.” Alberta Pork chair Frank Novak said the prospect of cheap U.S. pork imports isn’t new. “We’re living it,” he said. While American hog producers are buying into processing plants and working toward more vertical integration, that isn’t the trend in Canada. “The critical difference between the U.S. and Canada now is, in the U.S. producers are taking a thing that we read about once, called profits, and they’re using that money to invest in processing because they know they have to. They don’t necessarily want to. “In Canada, unfortunately, we’re going the other way. We have vertical integration happening but in some cases it’s happening because processors are buying producers who have gone out of business.”


I’m not near as optimistic about the next three weeks as what the market is. I still don’t think we’ve seen the cash market lows. TYLER FULTON MARKET ANALYST

On Nov. 28 for instance, the Chicago U.S. cash index price was $47.90 per hundredweight, while December futures were $50.65. The cash price has fallen from almost $66 at Sept. 1 in a slow g r i n d d ow n w a rd t o p re s e nt prices. However, December futures prices fell from $57 per cwt. on Sept. 1 to just above $40 on Oct. 19, then staged a rally back up to almost $51. Fulton suspects the rally is more technical than fundamental and that the cash market is a better indicator of where things are at. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

» CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE “I’m not near as optimistic about the next three weeks as what the market is,” said Fulton. “I still don’t think we’ve seen the cash market lows.” He expects to see them by the middle of December. The fourth quarter of every year is always of grave concern for hog producers because that’s when pig supplies tend to grow and packer capacity gets squeezed. In 1998, more hogs than shackles on which to hang them caused prices to collapse, ruining many farmers. Usually, the impact is less severe, but about every fourth year, the fourth quarter is a problem at the end of a herd expansion cycle. This year, many analysts were watching the fourth quarter closely because of this risk and prices have indeed fallen. December futures were at $67 in July, so dropping to $50 is significant. But the decline could be worse if the packing capacity becomes ov e r w h e l m e d , w h i c h re c e nt slaughter numbers suggest is close to happening. To this point, packing plants have kept up with the hog flow, with strong profitability encouraging them to kill all the pigs they can. “It’s really impressive the number of hogs we’ve churned through,” said Fulton. But with a maximum U.S. capacity of about 2.53 million pigs per week almost reached, problems could arise with any disruption. Fortunately for farmers, Fulton thinks cash prices will likely stay above $40, since excess supplies are unlikely to substantially exceed capacity and packers are keen to continue making money. Slaughter is at record levels, with almost six percent more pigs coming to market than a year ago. However, the pigs tend to be a few pounds lighter, so the amount of extra pork isn’t that great. Fulton said the packer squeeze is happening, but even though prices will likely be depressed more and there are more weeks to go, hog producers will likely come through this period OK. Next year shouldn’t see such a squeeze, because 30,000 to 40,000 head extra slaughter capacity is coming on-line. The real challenge will be moving the meat, which is presently being sold at high prices but is testing U.S. consumers. “Maybe the issue is on the pork side,” said Fulton. “We’ve got to find a way to move all of this pork, especially when the U.S. dollar is strong relative to the export markets.”

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s overall biofuel target of 19.28 billion gallons for 2017 was larger than expected and the component for advanced biofuels of 4.28 billion gallons, which includes biodiesel from vegetable oil, was particularly strong. On Nov. 27, the day of the announcement, soy oil futures jumped nearly seven percent. Canola futures rose 1.5 percent. The primary feedstock for U.S. biodiesel fuel is soyoil, so the

EPA’s targets should tighten domestic soyoil stocks. The U.S. Department of Agriculture currently projects U.S. soyoil stocks at the end of the 2016-17 marketing year at 1.658 billion pounds. “No matter how you cut the mustard, you are going to take some of this carry-out down, probably half a billion pounds,” said Charlie Sernatinger, an analyst with ED&F Man Capital. The markets determined that the soy oil futures rally was overdone and pulled back the day after the announcement, but for the week the January contract gained 7.7 percent. Canola rose 2.7 percent. The oilseed complex was also supported by stronger than expected U.S. soybean exports.

(The EPA plan is) completely detached from market realities and confirms once again that Congress must take immediate action to remedy this broken program. CHET THOMPSON PRESIDENT OF AMERICAN FUEL AND PETROCHEMICAL MANUFACTURERS

The EPA requirements include 15 billion gallons for conventional biofuel, which is mainly corn-based ethanol. However, corn futures did not respond to the news. Even with somewhat stronger ethanol production, the U.S. corn year-end stocks are expected to be ample.

Also, U.S. corn is expected to face strong competition from South American corn in a few months when the har vest there gets going. The oil industry is expected to renew its effort to persuade the U.S. Congress to repeal the Renewable Fuel Standard program. The EPA plan is “completely detached from market realities and confirms once again that Congress must take immediate action to remedy this broken program,” said Chet Thompson, president of the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers. President-elect Donald Trump had strong support from farmers in Midwestern states and the oil industry, so it is not clear how his administration will view the biofuel program.

China’s growing dairy sector sees forage demand rise China surpasses Japan as the major export market for U.S. alfalfa BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

The oft-ignored offshore forage market is getting bigger, even while some traditional markets are getting smaller, says the head of the U.S. forage exporters’ organization. “2016 registered the first time the Chinese market (was) a bigger export market than Japan,” John Szczepanski of the U.S. Forage Export Council said during the Canadian Forage and Grassland Association’s annual meeting in Winnipeg Nov. 16. “We’re seeing very world class equipment and facilities (being built in China) that demand similarly high quality input. That has created for us a great market.” Szczepanski said U.S. forage exports now total US$1 to $1.2 billion per year, with Japan and South Korea usually making up more than 50 percent of the market. In 2016, not only did China become a larger volume market than Japan, but Japan and South Korea dropped to less than 50 percent of the overall market for the first time. Szczepanski said the changing dynamics of the market come from the increase in Chinese demand, a gentle decline of Japan and South Korea and shifting demand in the Middle East. China’s growth is all about boom-

ing consumer demand and the desire of Chinese consumers for high-quality, safe dairy products, he said. The Chinese government has embraced the idea of high-quality alfalfa as the basis for high-quality dairy products, so until the country can produce enough of its own alfalfa, its dairy farmers are being pushed to buy good offshore alfalfa. Hurdles worth hurtling Szczepanski said the Chinese market is hard to work with because of both complex regulations and multiple differing interpretations of regulations in different areas. However, it is an excellent long-term market for American forage exports. Ja p a n a n d S o u t h Ko re a a re declining in demand because of an aging population and, in Japan, a shrinking number of dairy farmers. Fewer consumers and farmers mean less demand for forages. However, Japan is the top-paying customer for the U.S. industry, so it is still a key focus of exporters, Szczepanski said. Not only does it pay top dollar, but it’s farmers know how to use a wide variety of forages rather than just alfalfa. “For any forage that we grow in the western United States, alfalfa might represent 50 percent of our exports to Japan, but whatever we grow, the

Japanese have a place for it.” Szczepanski said Middle Eastern demand has shifted in recent years as the United Arab Emirates became a less dependable market. However, the Saudi Arabian market is seen to offer growing longterm potential, especially with challenges to irrigation. The Saudis are also willing to pay for quality forages. “The dairy industry there matters,” said Szczepanski. The biggest challenge to the growth of the American export forage industry is transportation, he said. The bankruptcy of a major world shipping company recently rattled overseas buyers. “When Hanjin shut off, it impacted a lot of product that was sitting on the water,” said Szczepanski. “Having a transportation network that works is critical for us.… Where we don’t have reliable supply, best in the world doesn’t mean anything.” Szczepanski also said being “best in the world” doesn’t always mean having the best product or marketing strategy. “Our customer base is not asking for the best in the world,” he said. “They are asking for good product at a reasonable price. Trying to tell people that we’re the best in the world only goes so far.”


How do you prepare your farm for a Trump-led America? HEDGE ROW



verybody always says, “we’re entering uncharted waters here,” but heck, folks, this time we’re truly entering uncharted waters. A Donald Trump presidency could mean almost anything for commodity prices, interest rates, market access and world economic conditions, and farmers need to be prepared to deal with unprecedented uncertainty during an already challenging time. Here’s what the Trump era could mean: • trade wars • Keynesian government spending • more world conflicts • fewer world conflicts • a big recession • a big economic boom • blocked market access • easier trading relations How do you set up your farm to deal with this contradictory range of possibilities? These aren’t abstract issues. The way the Trump administration and

the Republican-controlled houses of Congress sort out their differences into something approximating a new economic policy will directly affect the finances of every Canadian farmer. Think about interest rates: how vulnerable to interest rate changes is your farm? If Trump gets his way and launches a massive infrastructure spending program, inflation could spike and interest rates could soar. If he provokes trade wars and spurs a global recession, interest rates could remain at near zero for years to come. That’s a risk that needs to be hedged, but how do you do that? A recession tends to be bad for commodity prices as world demand slumps. An inflationary spike tends to boost commodity prices as investors rush for hard assets that keep their relative value as money cheapens.  Some economists are now fearing that 1970s-like stagflation is likely to reappear. How do you hedge for that range of possibilities? How vulnerable is your farm to the American border being shut to Canadian pigs, cattle or wheat? After a couple of years of relative border peace, especially with country-of-origin labelling eliminated, access to the U.S. market is once again something nobody is taking for granted.

Does anyone think that a bold populist, who owes his electoral success to the Midwest and Great Plains, won’t mess with agricultural trade? Sticking it to Canadian cattle, pigs and grains has often brought fulsome praise from farmers of the same commodities south of the border.  On the other hand, most of the things foreigners like us fear about Trump could melt away if he turns out to be the fabulous deal-maker he claims to be. Sure, he talks a tough game on trade, but maybe after some bluster and a high-visibility summit or two, he’ll be able to march out with a new deal on Canada-U.S. trade that changes only a few details, declare victory, and we’ll be back to clear sailing for the foreseeable future. The problem with dealing with populists is that it’s impossible to predict what they will do with either policy or action. Populism is a gut-based outlook that doesn’t lend itself to principle or predictability. We have entered an era of unpredictability and uncertainty, and markets hate uncertainty. How do farmers prepare for this?  Beyond being cautious and taking nothing for granted, there isn’t much to do. The ball is on the south side of the border, and we’ll have to see how they play it.





Tough year for lentils, but demand should keep growers growing Buyers say strong prices means there is an argument for more lentil acres, especially for green types BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

REGINA — The market is sending signals to plant more pulse crops, says an agrologist with Saskatchewan Agriculture. “Despite tough (pulse crop) growing conditions this year, a lot of producers should be back for the coming season,” Dale Risula said last week at Canadian Western Agribition. “It keeps their rotations and spreads risk.” Greg Simpson of Moose Jaw’s Simpson S eeds said grow ers should “be getting the message from the market’s signals.”

“Grow more green lentils, we aren’t producing enough to meet world demand,” he said. “We grew 440,000 tonnes (of greens) and this year we need about 650,000.” Demand for more lentil acres of all types is showing up in early production contracts for the crop, but buyers say that will likely start to soften as they fill the acres needed to meet future contracts, delivering in the fall of 2017 and winter 2018. Current prices for most lentils are very strong because of the lack of higher quality product from Western Canada and the Dakotas. The quality issue is holding back sales of

a three million tonne Canadian lentil crop this fall, and as a result, a carryover of 360,000 tonnes is likely.

We are moving into a strong beef demand period as retailers and the food service sector buy for Christmas and New Year’s needs. The U.S. fed cash market wrapped up before the American Thanksgiving with dressed sales in the north steady to US$6 higher than the previous week while southern regions traded steady to $3 higher on a live basis.

The week ending Nov. 12 included the U.S. election and Canadian Remembrance Day holiday, which might explain weekly exports of only 998 feeders. The feeder market in the coming weeks should see good demand and tighter supply. Auction volumes since October have been only slightly lower than last year. Buy orders will need to be filled, and there will also be buying before year end for tax reasons.

We grew 440,000 tonnes (of greens) and this year we need about 650,000. GREG SIMPSON SIMPSONS SEEDS

Simpson said it will take time to find homes for the lower quality crop that is in storage, but producers shouldn’t dwell on what hap-

CANFAX REPORT FED CATTLE RISE For the sixth consecutive week, western Canadian fed prices have rallied, rising to the mid $140s per hundredweight from the low $130s. The weekly average for steers was $145.15 per cwt., up $2.71, and heifers were $144.47, up $3.05. Second half highs are often set in either November or December. The market would have to rally another $3.75 if July highs are to be overtaken. In Alberta, one plant was doing most of the buying, and delivery was mostly scheduled for the first week of December. It was the second consecutive week that more heifers were slaughtered than steers in Western Canada. Heifer weights rose 16 pounds to average 864 lb., the heaviest reported since April. Canadian weekly beef production from fed cattle topped 37 million pounds, up four percent from last year and 10 percent larger than the 10-year average. Strength on the Chicago cattle futures market and the softer Canadian dollar has producers looking more seriously at contracting cattle direct to the packer or buying coverage under the Cattle Price Insurance Program. Strengthening cash cattle prices will mean processors will also have to keep ratcheting beef prices higher to maintain margins.

COWS RISE D1, D2 cows ranged C$77-$94 to average $85 per cwt., up $2.25. D3 cows ranged $69-$85 to average $77.42. Dressed cow bids firmed to $163-$168 delivered. Butcher bull prices rallied more than $4 to average $103.56. Weekly western Canadian nonfed slaughter to Nov. 19 fell four percent to 9,709 head. Weekly exports to Nov. 12 fell 13 percent to 5,833 head. Non-fed volumes are expected to seasonally tighten and prices should be steady.



Higher fed cattle prices and the seasonal demand for middle meats lifted U.S. boxed beef prices. Choice was up US $4.33 at $186.64 and Select up $3.02 at $170.12. While the overall cutout is down nine to 12 percent from a year ago, the value of rib primal is holding strong. The strong demand for middle meats is expected to supp o r t t h e c u t o u t m ov i n g i nt o December. Canadian cut-out values for the week ending Nov. 18 were unavailable.

Stronger fed prices and rising cattle futures lifted the feeder market. New crop calves saw keen buying interest and prices surged $8.5010.50. Feeders heavier than 600 lb. rose $4-$7. Weekly auction volumes rose 16 percent to 68,070 head.

WP LIVESTOCK REPORT HOGS Chicago hog futures have been edging higher, as have pork prices, but the cash price has not yet responded. U. S . c a r c a s s w e i g h t s h a v e declined as packers maintain a near-record pace of slaughter and enjoy robust profit margins. The U.S. national live price average for barrows and gilts was US$31.95 per cwt. Nov. 25, down from $32.72 Nov. 18. U.S. hogs averaged $41.88 on a carcass basis Nov. 25, up from $40.41 Nov 18. The U.S. pork cutout was $74.03 per cwt. Nov. 25, up from $73 Nov. 18. T h e e s t i m a t e d U. S. w e e k l y slaughter for the week to Nov. 25 was 2.152 million, down from 2.531 million the previous week. Slaughter was 2.110 million last

year at the same time. In Canada, the Nov. 26 Signature Five price was C$111.69 per 100 kilograms, down from $112.29 the previous week. The price was $50.66 on a per hundredweight basis, down from $50.93 the previous week.

BISON STEADY The Canadian Bison Association said Grade A bulls in the desirable weight range sold at prices up to C$6-$6.25 per pound hot hanging weight. U.S. buyers are offering US$4.60 with returns dependent on exchange rates, quality and export costs. Grade A heifers sold up to C$5.75$ 6 . U. S. b u y e r s a r e o f f e r i n g US$4.40. Animals outside the desirable buyer specifications may be discounted.

LAMBS STEADY Beaver Hill Auction in Tofield, Alta., reported that 681 sheep and 101 goats sold Nov. 21. Wool lambs lighter than 54 lb. were $194-$223 per cwt., 55-69 lb. were $215-$229, 70-85 lb. were $193-$230, 86-105 lb. were $187-$206 and 106 lb. and heavier were $180-$195. Wool rams were $80-$157 per cwt. Cull ewes were $70-$120. Hair lambs lighter than 54 lb. were $170-$208 per cwt., 55-69 lb. were $195-$225, 70-85 lb. were $184-$220, 86-105 lb. were $184$195 and 106 lb. and heavier were $175-$189. Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported that 1,225 sheep and lambs and 75 goats traded Nov. 21. All lambs, goats and thicker type sheep sold steady. Lean sheep sold higher.

pened this summer. Instead, they should start making plans to take advantage of a strong market for 2017-18 crops. “You have to ask yourself, ‘if you normally can grow a good crop of Eston (green lentils), why not plan for that?’ ” he said. Australia had a good harvest and that product is now reaching the market. As well, the Asian rabi harvest is coming early in the new year. Both harvests will cause shortterm, seasonal weakening of lentil prices, but growers should take that into account, say marketers. Not all prairie pulse acres were damaged, so the larger-than-aver-

age harvested acres did result in decent supplies of seed lentils. “There are lots of good No. 2 (lentils) out there for seed, but with the market looking for acreage, the best won’t necessarily be there later on, so farmers should be making plans,” said Simpson. The same can’t be said for chickpea seed supply. Poor growing conditions hurt sound seed supply, and that market is tightening quickly with current prices for kabuli exceeding 75 cents per pound. Simpson said there will be a lot of durum acres in need of a rotation, and lentils are still the likely bet.







Health Canada fails farmers in banning imidacloprid


eonicotinoids are a hot-button issue for agriculture and the father of that family of pesticides is being proposed for removal from service in Canada. Globally, pesticides are at the heart of most farms. Efforts to restrict their use will dramatically reduce farm production. If there were practical, financially acceptable alternatives for farmers to control pests, they would use them. Health Canada has identified imidacloprid, one of the world’s most popular insecticides, as a problem for aquatic insects in some surface water and potentially for the birds that eat them. Imidacloprid, the oldest of the neonicotinoid pesticides, has long been known to easily move in wet soil. And now, Health Canada says there are unacceptable levels of it in surface water in agricultural regions. It says it carried out field tests and its models project imidacloprid to be an issue in surface water across Canada, but it adds that further testing will not be done to confirm the projections due to the costs involved. Imidacloprid is the active insecticide ingredient in many canola seed treatments that control flea beetles, along with two newer neonicotinoids, thiamethoxam and clothianidin. It is also used for wireworm in cereals and potatoes. Until recently, neonicotinoids were the only insecticide seed treatment that targeted pests feeding on canola seedlings, generally allowing producers to avoid the use of non-target foliar and soilapplied insecticide. Short of carbon releasing, soil-eroding tillage, there are no effective cultural practices that defend against flea beetles or wireworms. Canola alone can suffer extensive yield losses from flea beetles, more than 10 percent even when seed treatments are effective, making this a significant financial threat to Canadian farmers.

Without seed treatments, canola growers are forced to use above-ground applications of non-specific insecticides, a choice that producers find financially and physically unappealing. Reliance on a single mode of action is also perilous. For wireworm there would be no control without imidacloprid. Thiamethoxam or clothianidin are used to treat nearly all corn and most soybeans grown in Canada and were reviewed for those crops last year. New active ingredients for globally minor crops in minor markets like Canada are difficult to license. Health Canada provides those approvals and has long been identified by chemical producers as an expensive and slow-moving institution in a market too small to justify the time and expense required to get product approval in some cases. As a result, farmers have come to believe that Health Canada sometimes stands between them and their ability to compete on an even footing internationally. So far, American authorities have not placed similar restrictions on imidacloprid but it is banned in the European Union. Earlier this year, Health Canada ruled that imidacloprid was not a risk to pollinators, which demonstrates that science can sometimes prevail in Canada. But Health Canada needs to ensure that in all cases, science and economics are both well understood and accounted for in its decision-making process. One would presume that any assessment of neonicotinoids would include a look at the financial value of the products for canola and cereals in Canada before any further restrictions are initiated. In food production, all new costs come at the expense of the farmer.

Bovine TB outbreak shakes Liberal approach to crises CAPITAL LETTERS



hen rancher Brad Osadczuk told the House of Commons agriculture committee Nov. 22 he was spending $92,000 a month to feed a third of his quarantined, soon to be culled, cattle herd, you could have heard a pin drop. That’s not chump change. It’s more than half the salary most backbencher MPs on the agriculture committee make in a year ($170,400 before taxes). Heck, it’s more than what many working Canadians make. All of a sudden an emergency bovine tuberculosis situation thousands of kilometres away on a

handful of ranches in southern Alberta had a human face. While Conservative MPs had been asking questions about the outbreak for weeks, the stor y gained little traction in Ottawa, where cattle markets and ranch life isn’t top of the agenda. That is until Nov. 22, when Osadczuk and two other ranchers told MPs point blank that if they didn’t get help soon, they would be “broke by spring.” The ranchers said the Canadian Food Inspection Agency wasn’t answering the phone. No one could get a straight answer on how tests were progressing and cash flow for extra feed and water was non-existent. The situation, ranchers said, was like having all your assets and bank accounts indefinitely frozen. After hearing from the ranchers, federal New Democratic Party and Conservative MPs wanted the CFIA to appear in front of the committee to explain, with NDP MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau arguing MPs

must ensure the agency has the necessary resources. But Liberal MPs disagreed, insisting that the situation in Alberta didn’t require study and should be left to the minister. Besides, the committee was already under a tight timeline to finish its review of the Agriculture Policy Framework, which expires in two years. In a 5-4 vote, the Liberal MPs voted down the request to hear from CFIA on the bovine tuberculosis situation, although they did agree to write a letter to federal Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay, at Brosseau’s urging, asking him to speed up testing and expedite compensation. Less than 24 hours later, a Conservative motion asking the Senate agriculture committee to look into the situation passed, a study suggestion backed by Health Minister Jane Philpott. The Senate investigation was to begin Nov. 29. Meanwhile, former Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz told iPolitics that MacAulay was “dead asleep at

the switch.” The Justin Trudeau government has been trying to put out the bovine TB fire ever since. The House agriculture committee has now reversed its initial decision and asked the CFIA to appear in front of the committee Nov. 29 for two hours, at the same time as MacAulay was already scheduled to come for supplementary estimates. Meanwhile, CFIA officials held a technical briefing with media Nov. 25 to clear up confusion in which the agency committed to work on improving communication with affected ranchers. The CFIA has also approved a plan to open a feedlot to ease overcrowding on ranches where quarantines force operations to house double the number of livestock they would normally because calves haven’t been sold. As of press time, details about the feedlot were not available, with overhead costs likely to be covered by Agri-Recovery funds.

The CFIA said the feedlot’s services would be available to any rancher in the quarantined zone who needs to move calves. The Alberta government has formally requested disaster funding via Agri-Recovery. Saskatchewan officials are said to be in discussions with federal officials and Alberta about what do to help the four quarantined operations in Saskatchewan. The situation has raised questions about MacAulay’s and the CFIA’s response to the outbreak, including how long it took the agency to begin testing animals and why it took so long for Ottawa to recognize the urgency. Yet, it’s safe to say the Liberals have learned a few lessons about agriculture crises and how rapidly they can gain traction thanks to the power of a human connection. Only time will tell if those lessons stick. Kelsey Johnson is a reporter with iPolitics,





The world’s most endangered ecosystem BY DAN KRAUS

The sour side of democracy EDITORIAL NOTEBOOK


sk any Canadian kid to name the world’s most endangered ecosystem and chances are you’ll hear one of the following answers: rainforests or coral reefs. There is no question that both of these are endangered. These ecosystems are the focus of international campaigns to protect hot spots of species diversity. They are the focus of education and awareness campaigns shown on Canadian news and taught in Canadian cla ssrooms. Now, what if I told you the world’s most endangered ecosystem is a habitat much closer to home than you might think. Endangerment comes down to risk; the risk of losing a species, habitat or ecosystem for future generations. When we look at the risk factors for endangerment — past loss, current amount of conservation, potential for future loss — the winners (actually the losers) are temperate grasslands, including our Canadian Prairies. There are many reasons why temperate grasslands are endangered. They are the original breadbasket of the world. More than 50 percent have been converted to crops and other land uses. Much of the remaining grasslands are intensively grazed, replacing what were some of the planet’s greatest concentrations of wild grazing animals with cattle, goats and sheep. The loss and continued threats to temperate grasslands were recognized in 2008, when the International Union for the Conservation of Nature declared temperate grasslands as the world’s most



Canada needs to protect and restore grasslands for the benefit of endangered species. | endangered ecosystem. Two years later, a paper published in the Journal of Ecological Letters about global habitat loss and conservation found that temperate grasslands had the highest conservation risk index compared to all other terrestrial ecosystems. This high risk is a result of largescale conversion of temperate grasslands and very few protected areas. A recent paper in the journal Science examined habitat types around the world, and temperate grassland was identified as the ecosystem with the greatest impacts and land use pressures. More than 70 percent of Canada’s prairie grasslands has been converted. A 2010 report on the status and trends of Canada’s major habitat types found that our grasslands are the only major ecosystem type in our country that is impaired and continuing to decline. The endangerment of grassland

habitat in Canada has cascaded into the endangerment of many grassland species. More than 60 Canadian species at risk depend on this habitat, including species that symbolize our grasslands, such as plains bison, swift fox and greater sage grouse. The loss of Canada’s grasslands is a loss for Canadians. In an ecosystem that is created by a lack of water, grasslands are critical for allowing water to infiltrate into the ground, providing base flow to rivers and streams, and holding water during floods. Grasslands are important for carbon storage, with intact native prairies proving to be particularly effective at sequestration and longterm storage in their deep, extensive root networks. Many of Canada’s grasslands have a long history of sustainable cattle grazing. This grazing has supported generations of prairie


ranchers, can help to maintain grassland health and benefits many species of prairie wildlife. The Nature Conservancy of Canada has protected more than 197,684 acres of grasslands in properties, including large, intact areas such as Old Man on His Back in southwestern Saskatchewan. In addition to new protected areas, there is also a key, and immediate, opportunity to conserve large areas of prairie and maintain local ranching economies by protecting community pastures. Here in Canada, we have opportunities to protect and restore habitats that are important for Canadians, and important for the world. We have an opportunity to protect and restore our grasslands. Dan Kraus is a scientist with the Nature Conservancy of Canada.


Cropping issues will influence seeding decisions HURSH ON AG



rofitability is paramount, but many others factors can cause farmers to shy away from certain crops. Problems during this growing season are still top of mind and will affect next year’s choices. “Friends don’t let friends grow flax,” said a tweet during harvest. A wet fall made cutting flax a problem for many, and when you’re finally able to combine it, you still need a plan to deal with the straw. If the combine can’t adequately chop the residue, you might have to pile and burn it, which is a thankless, labour-intensive job.

Rather than trying to find uses for the fibre in flax straw, the industry increasingly realizes that it needs varieties in which the straw isn’t so difficult to handle. The other knock against flax is that a lot of producers can’t achieve top yields. According to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s final crop report of the season, the average flax yield this year was 26 bushels per acre. While that’s well above the 10 year average of 22, it’s still well back of canola’s 40. For durum, the susceptibility to fusarium head blight is a huge issue. An estimated 34 percent of the Saskatchewan crop was a No. 3 with a whopping 48 percent lower than that, largely because of fusarium. In some cases, a fungicide application seemed to be helpful, but in many other instances, the value was difficult to quantify. Spring wheat is less susceptible, but producers in the traditional durum growing region are loath to

convert to a crop that typically has much lower prices. Another problem for next year will be securing durum seed that doesn’t have high levels of disease. It was also a difficult year to be growing lentils. Saskatchewan’s final crop report pegs the provincial lentil yield at 1,098 pounds, well below the 10-year average of 1,310. Lentils and chickpeas were the only crops of the 15 listed that had a lower than average yield. Red lentil prices are decent, but not exceptional like they were at this time a year ago. Large green lentil prices, on the other hand, are showing a lot of strength, even for the Extra 3 and No. 3 grades. With reds being the dominant class, expect lentil acreage to moderate next year. Many producers who pushed their rotations and tried to cash in big got their fingers slapped, and they’ll be cutting back next year. What crops will see an acreage

increase? Soybeans are firmly established in Manitoba, and that acreage may continue to grow. Saskatchewan’s main soybean area is on the east side of the province, and acreage slipped slightly this year. Expect an increase next year after a generally good harvest result. However, the biggest increase is likely to be in canola. Despite all the warnings about canola rotations being too tight, the crop had a great year: good yields and good quality with lots of weed control options. Seed costs are high, but fertilizer costs are down. Canola is relatively free of the many problems plaguing other crops, and there will be even more yellow flowers across the countryside next year, particularly in the south where canola doesn’t yet dominate.

t has been tempting, even fashionable, to cringe at the American experience in democracy these last few weeks. Between the election of a president with no political experience and controversial views, and late vote counts leaving Donald Trump with about 2.4 million fewer votes than Hillary Clinton, many Canadians are aghast at what they’re seeing. No so fast. While the mechanics of Canadian democracy tend to work better, the modus operandi of how we carry out our democracy remains ugly. I have watched question period at the House of Commons and in Queen’s Park in Ontario in disgust, but it’s been a while, so while attending Agribition, I took the opportunity to attend question period in the Saskatchewan legislature, as did 68 elementary schoolchildren, who sat in the public gallery well-behaved and seemingly interested in the proceedings. What they saw couldn’t have impressed them. Neither the NDP nor the Sask Party seemed interested in showing a modicum of respect for each other. Take the question posed by the NDP’s Buckley Belanger, who is also the deputy leader of the party. The preface to the question was toxic, accusing the government of “squandering our future for years and years to come,” acting “arrogant,” noting cabinet’s “penchant for Twitter tantrums and storming out of meetings.” The question itself concerned whether the government will adequately represent farmers in the coming Growing Forward 3 discussions. At 101 words, the response by Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart was roughly half as long as the question. There was opportunity to take the high road. Stewart has already said in the pages of The Western Producer that he is hearing from farmers about issues such as market access and development. He also mentioned trade policies and social licence issues. He could have talked about all of that. Instead, he attacked the NDP’s record, concluding that the party “failed agriculture on every front.” It was disappointing to see Stewart respond like this. But it likely didn’t matter. The obnoxious chatter among the MLAs was so loud it was almost impossible for anyone in the galleries to hear either the question or the answer. It’s probably fortunate that the children in attendance likely didn’t look at Hansard to read what they surely couldn’t hear. That would not have been a teachable moment.

ENERGY SECTOR JOBS To the Editor: I’ve done the math, even in these lean times I’ve taken the time from trying to put food on the table to try and understand why Premier Brad Wall does not do the obvious: put the unemployed energy grunts back to work by embracing clean, renewable energy with equal enthusiasm as how he worships old, dirty extractive energy production. The amount of money media has reported spent on clean-coal technology alone is enough to outfit two-thirds of the houses in Regina with solar panels capable of satisfying those houses’ needs. Building, installing and maintaining that

many solar ar rays is job r ich instead of job poor with clean coal. Solar is not the only source of renewable energy. There are tremendous advances worldwide in clean energy production that hugely reduces green house gas emissions. There are incineration devices that reduce GHGs 95 percent in everything from human and animal wastes to wood, flax straw, and most of the contents of landfills (to name a few sources of feed stocks). We can turn those GHGs into energy and heat, that’s without even mentioning wind or moving water. Yet Wall seems stuck in a prehistoric mindset that concludes only dirty extractive big industry can and will supply our energy and

those are the only sources of energy that are going to be funded by the taxpayers, even with those industries’ historically horrible, uncaring, environmental reputations. I may have certain neanderthal characteristics in technology. I am 65 and can have difficulty manipulating a TV remote, but the real knuckle draggers are those global w a r m i n g d e n i e r s w h o a re s o invested in the old, dirty system that they are afraid to endure any transition by embracing renewable resources. To them I say, reinvest. The big difference between nonrenewable and renewable energy resources is that non-renewable resources can be, and are, owned and diabolically controlled by, and for the benefit of, a few well-placed

individuals who squeeze the public for huge profits. To own the nonrenewables allows for corporate rule over the entire world. It’s not about economy or jobs and definitely not about the environmental sustainability, it’s about concentrating wealth and power. Renewable resources, on the other hand, put ownership, control and consumption in the hands of individuals and local communities. With personal, local supervision, efficienc y and supply would increase, and energy costs would decline, giving individuals huge opportunities to be creative in economic pursuits, job creation and environmental stewardship. There would be increasingly reduced necessity for huge expensive, aging, centralized production and transmission facilities, pipelines, extraction processes and all the associated pollutions. We could have a better, healthier, r i c h e r a n d m o re re s p o n s i v e democracy. Greg Chatterson Fort Qu’Appelle, Sask.

FOOD SECURITY To the Editor: In your article “Hunger called human rights issue,” the writer, Ed White, conveniently forgot to mention how much of the grain the world produces is fed to animals so that First World countries can gorge on meat. We currently produce enough food to feed all people on the planet an adequate diet, but ag producers are feeding almost half of what we grow to livestock, not to mention the amount of water that is used and polluted for livestock production. If people truly are concerned about world hunger, we have to stop feeding resources (grain, legumes and water) to animals, change the rules on the grades of crops allowed to be fed to human beings and work to fix distribution problems. The Western Producer is talking about expanding markets to Africa and the Middle East for meat. That again will not be feeding people who are starving. Get out of the meat production and stop wasting resources. Read the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations report on animal agriculture: Livestock’s Long Shadow. North American and European animal agriculture is a slap in the face to those who are hungry, it’s killing the planet and damaging human health. Karin Nelson Edmonton, Alta.

Ranchers to get compensation for TB quarantine The cattle in quarantine cannot be sold, and Ottawa is offering financial assistance with winter feeding costs BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Financial assistance will be available to help Alberta and Saskatchewan ranchers cope with expenses from having cattle in quarantine during a bovine tuberculosis investigation. Federal Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay made the commitment Nov. 24 in the House of Commons. “I am pleased to confirm that, working with the province, we are committed to compensate these ranchers for the costs they are facing, including interest on their advance payment loans,” MacAulay said. Details of the financial assistance had not been released at press time Nov.28. Alberta Agriculture Minister Oneil Carlier said the provincial contribution would come in the form of Agri-Recovery funds. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said Nov. 25 that it has expanded the source herd investigation to six farms from three and that no new positive cases of TB had been found beyond the six already confirmed in previous weeks. It said about 22,000 animals and 40 ranches are now involved in the quarantine: five of them are in Saskatchewan and the rest in Alberta. CFIA also said it is working with producer groups to arrange for calves to be moved to a feedlot where they can be fed throughout the coming months while the investigation continues. Location and details of that are still being determined. MacAulay’s response in the House of Commons was made two days after three southeastern Alberta ranchers, each with herds in quarantine, appeared before the House agriculture committee to explain their situation and ask for help. Brad Osadczuk of Jenner, Alta., appeared in person and Ross White and Warren Henry presented via video from Calgary. Osadczuk had one cow confirmed with TB in September, prompting an investigation by the CFIA that led to his and other ranches being quarantined. Since then, five more animals have been confirmed as infected, and testing on an estimated 18,000 animals continues. The process is expected to take months. Osadczuk said it is costing him $92,000 per month to feed 400 of his 1,200-head cow herd that is in quarantine. He said he and other affected ranchers are overdrawn on their bank accounts because they are unable to sell animals to pay the bills. White told the committee that he was unable to reach the CFIA for 10 days when he wanted information on when his herd would be tested. He had pre-sold his calf crop in early October but was forced to renege on the contract because his herd is quarantined. As of last week, he hadn’t yet weaned his calves, which he said is causing his cows to lose body condition and is overtaxing available pasture. He is also worried about overcrowding, higher risk of illness and

potential calf loss from having to handle cows numerous times in the testing process. “This is truly a disaster.” White wondered whether land values in the region would fall as a result of the TB cases and whether ranchers in that region would have difficulty marketing their cattle in the future. The three ranchers said the CFIA has not been forthcoming with information, and despite the willingness of veterinarians in the province to help with testing, the CFIA has refused those offers. Testing is slow as a result, they said. “We don’t want a hand out. We

don’t want free money,” said Osadczuk. “We don’t want anything we don’t deserve. I feel almost embarrassed to be asking for money.” Existing programs are not sufficient or quick enough to help ranchers who are in immediate need, added Alberta Beef Producers chair Bob Lowe, who also appeared at committee. “It’s all too slow and a lot of it is based on loans,” he said. Added White: “We don’t need a loan. We need money to pay for expenses.” White said he would be broke by spring unless there is assistance with feed costs.

ABP has been trying to arrange for calves to be moved to a feedlot where they could be fed until their fate is determined by the CFIA. The federal ag committee voted Nov. 22 to send a letter to MacAulay requesting assistance for the affected ranchers. Six Conservative MPs also sent their own letter Nov. 22 asking the federal government to provide interim funding before winter sets in. They asked that the CFIA allow local veterinarians to assist with testing as a way to speed up the process, and that timely and accurate information be provided by CFIA to the affected ranchers.


“We are aware that the CFIA has established an emergency response team in Ottawa with staff on the ground in Alberta, but the reality is ranchers are not aware of it and are far from receiving the help they need,” the letter said. In a news conference Nov. 25, CFIA deputy chief veterinarian Jaspinder Komal acknowledged complaints about communication. He said the agency is working to provide each affected rancher with a dedicated contact, and it will continue twice a week conference calls with industry associations.

Canada looks for Plan B on trade in wake of Trump win With trade deals on the chopping block, Canada hopes other countries will step into the ring to keep the TPP deal alive BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

The tumblers are spinning as Canadian farmers and agricultural exporters try to figure out how to unlock the new world trading reality. With the Trans Pacific Partnership likely dead and the CanadaEuropean Union free trade likely to succeed, Canada’s agriculture and food producers are facing a new set of locked and unlocked doors. “With TPP off the table, it’s too bad, but CETA (the Canada-E.U. Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement) is one good agreement we can use,” said Paul Gregory, a farmer from Fisher Branch, Man., who exports both honey and forage seed. “Any kind of trade agreement is great.” U.S. President-elect Donald Trump has promised not to sign the TPP, and the hopes for any large or improved multilateral trade deals also appear to be dimmed to a mere flicker. CETA almost died because of regional opposition in one EU member and still needs official approval within the EU’s byzantine political and bureaucratic system. As well, Trump often said during the election campaign that he was going to try to force a renegotiation

of the North American Free Trade Agreement. It’s a remarkably different export market outlook than two years ago, when Canadian farmers and food exporters were looking at the development of a much more open world trading environment. Now the doors appear to be shutting. However, export-oriented officials and politicians don’t see the situation as too grim. “We wouldn’t be surprised if other TPP partners are now interested in bilateral agreements,” said Gary Stordy of the Canadian Pork Council. “If this collapses, it won’t be a lost effort.” Stordy said Canadian hog farmers and processors are hoping for immediate action to revive already-established Canada-Japan trade talks, which were put on the backburner while the TPP talks went forward. Vietnam and other TPP members, and those who said they wanted to join TPP in a second wave, are probably also willing to consider bilateral deals if TPP dies. “We’ve been advocating for Canada to have a Plan B should TPP essentially fall apart,” said Stordy. Gerry Ritz, a former Conservative federal agriculture minister, said he not only thinks bilateral deals should be pursued if TPP dies but also thinks TPP can be salvaged without the U.S.

“With like-minded countries like Canada, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and so on, we’d still meet (the requirements for TPP approval if it is reformulated to exclude the U.S.),” Ritz said. He also thinks Canada can find lots of other willing trade partners if it looks further afield than the U.S.

“It likely increases (its) importance, but not as much as Japan. I think Japan is really the big one for us,” said Bonnett. So are other TPP members that are likely to be open to bilateral deals. “Just the fact that TPP is off the table, it might fast track putting these alliances in place.”

Having people within the United States talking about the benefits of an ongoing trade deal will be even more important than somebody outside telling them that. ROB BONNETT CANADIAN FEDERATION OF AGRICULTURE

“There’s no reason to think that Canada couldn’t move ahead and start to become part of the deal with the (southeastern Asian) group of countries. There’s no reason to believe the Philippines and South Korea aren’t sincere when they talk of joining TPP,” said Ritz. “Then there’s other major markets, like China and India, where we’ve begun the ground work.” Canadian Federation of Agriculture president Ron Bonnett said CETA is a good deal to have in the pocket, but even greater gains can probably be achieved in the opposite direction.

However, a lot of energy is now going into defending access, Bonnett said in an interview during day-long meeting with Mexican agriculture and trade people discussing NAFTA and Canada-Mexico issues. Trump attacked NAFTA while campaigning, so Canada and Mexico need to be able to defend the value of having an open North American market. “Both of us have an interest in this trading relationship between the three countries,” said Bonnett.

Trump administration about NAFTA’s benefits will likely bring better results than just having foreign organizations from Canada and Mexico saying the same thing. “Having people within the United States talking about the benefits of an ongoing trade deal will be even more important than somebody outside telling them that,” said Bonnett. James Hofer, a farmer from Starbuck, Man., said he was excited a year ago about the prospects of both CETA and the TPP. He saw nothing but benefits for his Hutterite colony from the deals, which would increase demand and stability for his livestock and crops. Since then, CETA has become mired in seemingly endless complications, and TPP is on the point of death. He has felt disappointed and has had trouble watching these developments unfold. “After all of this talking and hemming and hawing, I have kind of stopped following it.… They don’t know how to make a deal, by the looks of it,” Hofer said. “I don’t know why people are making it so hard to make a trade deal.” Gregory said he’s hopeful about CETA, but said the last year of complications and challenges with EU regulations make him less confident about future market access.

Ottawa takes steps to deregulate hemp farming BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

The federal government is easing regulations for testing and cultivation of industrial hemp. Health Canada, in a Notice to Industry document, said it was eliminating testing for THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, in most varieties of hemp. As well, growers will no longer have to identify fields for planting of hemp, prior to spring seeding. In federal government language, the change is an exemption to the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. “The exemption better aligns regulation of industrial hemp with the demonstrated low public health and safety risk of the crop,” Health Canada said in the Notice to Industry. “The exemption is an interim measure to simplify the licence application process as the government moves forward with its commitment to legalize, strictly regulate and restrict access to marijuana.” Canadian hemp growers and hemp seed processors have asked the federal government for years to simplify and remove regulations for hemp production. “It’s a great day for the hemp industry…. They just made growing hemp and acquiring licenses and testing … a whole lot simpler,” said Russ Crawford, president of the Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance. “The barriers to production have

Canadian hemp growers and hemp seed processors have asked the federal government for years to simplify and remove regulations for hemp production. | FILE PHOTO been reduced significantly. (We’re) starting to treat (hemp) more like a grain and oilseed crop. We’re not there yet, but we’re a lot closer then we were.” The federal government permitted cultivation of industrial hemp in the late 1990s, and it’s been grown for nearly two decades, mostly in Western Canada. However, it was never treated like other crops.

Health Canada required farmers to get a production licence and a criminal record check, and testing for THC content was a key part of the regulations. The CHTA has said for several years that the regulatory system is “antiquated” and unnecessary because industrial hemp is distinct from marijuana and the public has safely consumed millions of kilograms of hemp oil, protein, milk

and other hemp foods. The CHTA argued the regulations were holding back expansion of what is now a significant industry. Western Canadian farmers seeded 70,000 to 100,000 acres of hemp in the last few years, and Canadian processors exported $93 million of hempseed, hemp oil and related products last year. The CHTA lobbied Ottawa to relax the regulations for much of

2015 and 2016, but Crawford thought the talks were fruitless. “We didn’t think we were getting anywhere and then boom, they just kind of surprised us with this,” he said. “It’s excellent. We’re really, really happy with it.” The interim changes include: • Industrial hemp growers will be able to choose fields at the time of seeding. The previously had to identify sites and notify the government before planting. • One licence will cover all cultivation sites and activities, reducing the number of licences. • The requirement for THC testing for most hemp varieties has been eliminated, provided the variety is on a list of approved cultivars. • The expiry date of a licence has been extended until March of the following year to allow for the sale of products grown in the previous year. • Applications will be accepted by email. One issue was omitted from the regulatory change. Health Canada prohibits the harvest of hemp flowers and tissue to extract compounds known as cannabinoids. Evidence suggests cannabinoids could be used for pain relief, anti-inflammatory and anti-seizure treatments. A federal government task force is considering the legalization of marijuana, and a decision on hemp cannabinoids will likely be included in its recommendations.

SAFETY ON WHEELS A mobile unit will drive home the farm safety message next year when Ag For Life launches its latest initiative, the Rural and Farm Safety Mobile Unit. | Page 18



UBC research spotlights rural health BY TAMARA LEIGH FREELANCE WRITER

A new research chair in rural health care at the University of British Columbia is the first position of its kind at a Canadian university to focus on the delivery of health care in rural communities. Terry Lake, B.C.’s minister of health, announced a $5 million endowment in November to establish a position to enhance the delivery of rural health-care services in the province. The endowment is funded through the Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues, a partnership between the Ministr y of Health and Doctors of B.C. that advises the provincial government on rural medical practice. Dr. Dave Snadden, who was appointed the founding Rural Doctors UBC Chair in Rural Health, said physicians are keen for this chair to provide advocacy and raise the profile of rural health. “Rural health doctors work in circumstances that aren’t always easy, and that aren’t always understood in the big cities,” he says .

Fitness ranks low for Canadian youth A busy day isn’t always a physically active one for children, says program director BY KAREN MORRISON SASKATOON NEWSROOM

NOBLETON, Ont. — Fitness doesn’t have to cost a lot and can be as easy as parking the car farther away from the grocery store. Shyanne Spilchen, the director of Fitness 4 Youth, said regular physical activity needs to become routine. “People see exercise as a chore instead of a lifestyle,” said Spilchen, who provides fitness and leadership in the Toronto region. In a session at the National 4-H Members Forum held near Nobleton, Ont., in November, she said exercise benefits include weight control, disease prevention, muscle strengthening, improved mental health, injury and falls prevention, better sleep and increased concentration. 4-Hers suggested physical activities from their own lives such as daily farm chores, freestyle dance, horseback riding and shovelling snow. “Physical activity and fitness is active activity. As long as the body is moving, really that’s what the goal is,” said Spilchen, who conceded that youth on farms are likely more active than city kids. She said cellphones and computers

are part of a child’s life today, a change from her own childhood. “When I was a kid, I was on the street playing,” Spilchen said. Their timetables may be full with school and extracurricular activities, but these activities are not necessarily active ones. She said busy lives also lead to unhealthy food choices that can contribute to being overweight. Spilchen said rising obesity rates are related to income levels with lower income families finding less time and money to enroll children in sports and provide nutritious meals due to limited budgets. Busy families also often reach for what’s easy and convenient, such as fast food. Middle to upper class families and baby boomers tend to be more active, she said. Spilchen, who said weight and mental health issues in her own family are behind her career choice, sees physical activity as a way to reduce anxiety and control weight. “It makes you feel great from the inside out,” she said. “You start with the inside and be comfortable with how you feel and then

outside will start to change.” Spilchen praised 4-H for addressing fitness at the forum and suggested that similar sessions provided more frequently is one way to bring about change. “If we all work together, I believe children will be more active,” said Spilchen. Canadian kids scored a D- for their fitness levels in the annual ParticipAction report card, released in June. It reported that only nine percent of five to 17 year olds get the recommended 60 minutes of cardio activity each day. The group, which released another study Nov. 16 that compared Canada with 37 other countries, ranked Canada near the bottom along with Australia, England, Spain and the United States. Too much screen time and not enough free play time were blamed. Twenty-six countries earned a D or worse. Belgium, Chile, China, Qatar and Scotland received an F. More developed countries tended to grade lower than less developed countries. Canada received top marks in community and environment and scored Bs for organized sports and school, but Canadian kids scored an F for sedentary behaviour.


“We are also very keen to encourage our students and residents to consider rural practice for their careers.” Recruiting and retaining new physicians to rural practice is a longtime passion for Snadden, who oversaw the expansion of medical education and training in northern British Columbia earlier in his career. Based in Prince George, Snadden will provide academic leadership in rural affairs, establish relevant research and address rural physician recruitment and retention. “One of the things about being an academic at a university is that I’m not aligned with the government or the health authorities. It brings an independent voice to bear,” he says. “I hope through looking at current evidence, and maybe working with some of the rural communities to create new evidence, we can begin to influence how rural health care is delivered and find innovative ways of doing things.” In addition to the endowment, operational funding of $350,000 per year will be provided over the next five years to support the development of a provincial network of rural health researchers and the establishment of a Dean’s Advisory Committee on Rural and Remote Health.

Mobile unit helps deliver farm safety program Ag For Life program will launch next fall and aims to deliver interactive content to rural areas across Western Canada BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

A mobile unit will drive home the farm safety message next year when Ag For Life launches its latest initiative. The Rural and Farm Safety Mobile Unit has been under consideration for about three years, said Ag for Life chief executive officer Luree Williamson. A $650,000 donation from Agrium, announced Nov. 16, will help get the unit on the road to rural schools, communities and fairs by September 2017. “We were absolutely thrilled when Agrium had stepped up and said they could provide some funding to help us get the wheels on the bus going, if you will,” said Williamson. Unit design is underway and is likely to be a trailer pulled behind a truck so it can be taken to rural areas and sites across Western Canada and beyond. “We’re going to be looking at the western provinces for sure and then we’ll be going into some target areas into the United States in our winter months…. We’ll be looking for some program partners down there.” The mobile unit will carry a vari-

“We want the content to be able to be shared worldwide,” said Williamson. “If there’s groups anywhere that are interested in delivering farm safety programming, we’d like them to be able to utilize a lot of the content that we develop.” Content development is the next task, along with additional fundraising to cover operational costs once the mobile unit is ready to hit the road. Such funding will determine how far the unit can travel and the number of people it can reach with its farm safety message. Ag for Life also launched its Alberta Agriculture Teacher Toolkit, a collaborative effort by commodity and industry groups. Available at agriculture-in-alberta-teacher-kit, it provides teachers with basic information about food, animal care, farm machinery, environmental sustainability and biotechnology.

Popular baby products used by millions of parents around the world rubbed Cherry Staszczak the wrong way. The retired high school English teacher and author of There’s What In My What??? from Wynyard, Sask., couldn’t understand why her grandson developed eczema soon after he was born in 2006. She said her daughter had been applying Johnson and Johnson products daily but didn’t make the connection. “We had been using (the Johnson & Johnson) products because that’s what you do. And we kept using those products,” she said. Staszczak later learned Johnson and Johnson used formaldehyde in its products and was in a two-year process of removing it. “I started to read and I read more and just read, read, read as much as I could find,” Staszczak said. “You never see that word (formaldehyde) anywhere. That was a big shock to me. How could that be allowed?” Manufacturers were able to use a legal loophole in product guidelines to use toxic chemicals in their brands, she said. Their fragrances were considered proprietary so

disclosure of ingredients was not required. Her grandson’s eczema eased after being prescribed a cream by his family doctor, she said. Staszczak decided the best way to warn and inform consumers was by writing the book, which was recently published by Benchmark Press in Regina. “I’m telling my story about how it affected me and my family,” she said. Staszczak, who has taken her message to schools and trade shows, called the book a wake-up call about commonly used products. In the book, she also lists many of the chemicals often used by manufacturers of skin products and beauty aids. In addition, she lists manufacturers who don’t use chemicals in their products. “Women typically use 12 different products every day and they contain 168 different chemicals. Think about that,” says Staszczak.

Jonathan, Marilyn, Herman and Stefan Bouw operate Edie Creek Angus on the eastern edge of the Prairies, focusing on a grass-based system that produces purebred cattle that can be used in the commercial, grass-based and organic farming systems.. | ED WHITE PHOTO BEEF CATTLE

Putting the business out to pasture A multi-generation family of Angus producers makes the move to organic grass-fed animals BY ED WHITE



ANOLA, Man. —The Bouws have been hit by all the crises and challenges of modern farming, but they’ve managed to stumble through each one and emerge with a better farm. It’s been a never-ending process of figuring out what works for them as a growing family, what works on their land and what they like doing. “As a longtime beef man, I feel like I’ve missed the boat,” said Herman, the family patriarch, about the farm’s ongoing beef cattle evolution. His sons, Jonathan and Stefan, have recently led the farm into a pasture and grass-fed focus along with a purebred Angus herd that produces cows that do well on pasture. “It’s odd for me, because you’d think ‘Father knows best,’ ” he said. The Bouw family is bubbling over with new ideas, and that has helped them shift the nature of their farm a few times, but each time it has been toward a more stable economic base. The Bouw farm, on the furthest eastern reach of the Prairies, was founded by Herman’s parents when they emigrated from Holland in 1957. They had produced milk and raised hogs in Europe in addition to buying and finishing feeder cattle. In Canada, they stuck with hog farming and also operated a cattle feedlot, as well as producing some grain. The hog barn paid the bills in the early days. The family now raises grass-fed beef cattle and purebred Angus. It

THE BOUW FAMILY Anola, Man. liquidated its 300 ewe sheep herd this summer and no longer operates the cattle feedlot that was the core of the Bouw operation. “It provides interest,” said Marilyn of why Jonathan and Stefan have relished getting into a specialized purebred herd. Since regular cows designed to be fed grain and produce calves that end up in feedlots don’t do well on pasture- and hay-only diets and did not do well on the Bouw farm, the sons had to seek and incorporate genetics. “These guys have enquiring minds, so it keeps them thinking about how to improve the genetics and what are their goals,” said Marilyn. The Bouw herd is now a customized set of cows that thrive on pasture and their calves on grass diets. The Bouw farm is supporting a lot of human beings, so business decisions are taken seriously and analytically. Both Jonathan and Stefan have four children each, all under 10 years old, so farming needs to provide a stable and secure source of revenue to support the multigenerational family. That’s why they got out of sheep

this year. “It’s a commodity business,” said Stefan, who relishes analyzing the farm’s cash flow and profitability. “We had years where we made good money, and years where we broke even or lost money.” That didn’t make sense for the Bouws, who have been trying to find parts of agriculture that are profitable and have low financial risk, even if that requires embracing higher management forms of production. Their transition out of winter calving occurred after the brutal 2013-14 winter, when calves lost ears and tails. “This doesn’t work,” Jonathan said. They switched to April-May calving, while converting their entire operation into pasture-raised. They are active in the local grass-fed beef market while selling their purebred bulls coast-tocoast. Their cows are designed to work well for commercial operations that want a good mother that thrives on pasture. Almost all their production changes have come from a challenge. Herman recalls well the awful feelings around 2003, when BSE devastated the Canadian cattle business and when Herman’s father died. “I was in such a flap,” he said. “You just kind of keep doing what you’ve been doing because you don’t know any better.” Herman, who had bought the farm from his father five years before, had already decided to transition into organic production, so the 2003 crisis made that happen much more easily.

Jonathan took on the onerous paperwork required for organic production, while in these years, Stefan grew his 4-H experiment in purebred cattle into a small herd that just kept growing. Jonathan became a fan of grazing schools, where he learned about holistic management, and the whole family became obsessed with grass. “The passion of all we do is turning to forages,” said Jonathan. Marilyn has enjoyed seeing the farm morph and shift over the years, and she’s particularly happy with the holistic nature of the farm today. She’s an urbanite who married into farm living, but she’s got a keen feel for what the farm does to make a buck. She’s even managed to use her skills as a one-time French immersion teacher when selling a bull to a farmer in Quebec. “ That was ner ve-wracking because it’s a pretty important decision,” she said about the French conversation on technical cattle matters. The Bouws seem to like getting educated. Herman got both an agriculture diploma and an agriculture degree, Jonathan got a non-agricultural degree and then an agriculture diploma and Stefan has an agriculture diploma. They are continually analyzing their farming operations to understand what works and what doesn’t, what makes money and what loses money. In the end, it all comes down to everyone in the family loving living on the land and managing grass and cattle and adapting to change to keep the farm viable.

This is a touchy subject and although it may not be politically correct to talk about someone being overweight in a social context, your doctor is right to be concerned and to comment on it because it affects your health. Researchers at Oxford University in England concluded that family doctors should put their overweight and obese patients on a diet, even if they are not visiting the doctor with that purpose in mind. The researchers kept track of 1,900 overweight patients. Half were simply advised to lose weight and the other half were asked to sign up for weight loss classes for 12 weeks, the equivalent of going to a health club or attending a weight loss program. In the U.K ., the government health-care service offers free weight loss classes that cost the government about £50 per person for three months. The patients were followed up for a year and the results of this study were published in the Lancet. Those people who attended classes lost an average of 4.5 kg in a year, while those who were given advice only from their doctors lost less than one kg. This would save money in the long run due to reduced risk of Type 2 diabetes and other chronic conditions such as heart disease or hypertension. The researchers also discovered that only a small number of patients, less than 0.2 percent, took offence at the doctor’s suggestions.


How many Canadians travel to other countries to get medical treatment?


The Fraser Research Institute found that 45,619 Canadians travelled outside Canada in 2015 to receive medical treatment. That represents about one percent of the population, numbers that have remained approximately the same for the past few years. British Columbia had the highest percentage at 1.6 percent of their population. Interestingly, the specialists most visited were urologists. Researchers speculated that this was not just because of long weight times. Some were due to snowbirds visiting doctors while away for the winter. Also, some immigrants preferred to travel back to their country of origin for medical help. Clare Rowson is a retired medical doctor in Belleville, Ont. Contact:






What to do about worrying

Readers share their favorite recipes





My girlfriend is always telling me that I am too uptight. She thinks that I should learn to relax a bit more. I hate to admit it but I think that she is probably right. I seem to be worrying about something most of the time. I worry about the rain or crop or bank or the price of wheat. I worry when the cows are about to throw new calves and worry once they are struggling to get onto their feet. I worry too much to sleep and at times I am so worried I do not eat my supper. I do not know what to do about it.


Your first job is to learn the difference between problem solving and worrying. The unfortunate truth is that worrying does not resolve problems. If anything, worrying just makes the problems worse than they originally were. Problem solving means sitting down with a paper and pencil and clearly outlining what the problem might be, being as specific as possible. It is not enough, for example, to worry about the price of grain. To problem solve, you should look at the hypothetical price of grain that you need to break even, the price that might render you a bit of a profit and the price that is going to drive you to a loss. If you put that on a trend over the years, you will figure out when to sell, what to do if you need to take a loss and whether you need to talk to your banker. If you are still worrying after you have figured out a strategy for problem solving, you might want to consider the psychology of all of it. Worrying is a futuristic concept. We don’t worry about what happened in the past. We worry about what might happen in the future. When we are worrying too much about what might happen down the road sometime, we lose our focus on what we are doing and we are at risk for having an accident. The goal is to think more about what is going on now and to think less about what the future might hold. To get yourself back into orienting yourself to the present, you can follow any of at least three strategies. You can learn relaxation exercises. Most bookstores have a collection of relaxation tapes that will help you learn to be more aware of yourself as you are in the moment. Pick the one that works the best for you and play it regularly. You can get into aerobics. A good run or an energetic walk with a strong focus on your breathing might help you break that worry cycle. Finally, you can have a chat with your local physician. She might have a prescription that will help you and she will certainly help you get an appointment at your mental health clinic to get the counselling you might need.

Girls are given presents or a chance to party with alcohol or drugs. The next thing they know, the girls are told it’s time to return the favour, and there is only one way to do it. EDUCATION AND SAFETY

Sex trafficking: not just an urban problem BY JOHN GRAINGER FREELANCE WRITER

Sex trafficking doesn’t just happen in Canada’s big cities. That’s the message that Joy Smith, founder of the Joy Smith Foundation and a former Manitoba MP, will deliver in a presentation in Yorkton, Sask., Dec. 6. “I have found out it’s as prevalent in small towns as it is in the big cities,” she says. “Education is our greatest weapon. The more people know, the more


protected our young girls can be.” After speaking to students at a

school in Okotoks, Alta., Smith says one young girl told her a gas station attendant offered her a chance to get rich quick, often the sales pitch of sex trade exploiters. “We all need to be very wary. It happens everywhere in this country.” Smith estimates that as much as $280,000 is made annually from just one young victim of sex trafficking. Perpetrators of the sex trade often tell young girls what they want to hear. They’ll say they are beautiful and know a way girls can cash in on

their beauty. Girls are given presents or a chance to party with alcohol, and more likely, drugs such as highly addictive crack cocaine. “These men can manipulate the kids,” says Smith. “They can paint a very rosy picture of what life can be like for these vulnerable girls. And the girls get sucked in. This is so typical of how perpetrators work.” The next thing they know, the perpetrators will tell the girls it’s time to pay back all the things they

have received and there is only one way to do it, by selling themselves and giving the money to these men. Smith said one myth of the sex trade is that it only includes the kids living on the fringe but it’s not the case, noting how many young girls from affluent families also get lured into that lifestyle. “It happens in every community, not just the big centres in Canada, but you just don’t hear about it,” says Smith. “This awareness piece is our biggest weapon to save our kids.”

Feed efficiency reduces methane emissions QUICK FACTS BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU


EDMONTON — Feed efficient cows come with an environmental bonus because they also release less methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Research has found heifers selected for low residual feed intake consumed 7.1 percent less feed and emitted 6.5 percent less methane per day than the average animal, said researcher John Basarab at the Livestock Gentec conference held in Edmonton earlier this fall. “Methane emissions is essentially driven by feed intake. The more it eats, the more methane it produces,” he said. A major project studying emissions from feed efficient animals is underway. Major funding for the $1.6 million project came from the former Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency, as well as the Climate Change and Emissions Management Corp. CMEC was created in 2009 to support projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change. Feed accounts for 52 to 75 percent of the cost of beef production, so there is a strong motivation to find more efficient animals. Feed efficiency is a heritable trait that could improve a producer’s bottom line because cattle eat less to reach the same body weight. “Getting an animal to eat less or the same and produce more or the same

amount of product is a complex question,” said Basarab, who researches feed efficiency and its genetic correlations with other traits. So far, research has found that efficient animals are better able to digest food and can handle more dry matter. There is also a temperament difference. Feed-efficient beef animals calm down more quickly in new situations compared to less efficient animals that take longer to settle into new situations and take up feeding. “We do see consistently a difference in temperament and how those efficient heifers settle to grazing and new stressors,” he said. They also know residual feed intake and growth traits are not genetically correlated. There are efficient animals that gain quickly and efficient animals that gain slowly. Low residual feed intake as a genetic trait has no effect on female productivity and fertility, pregnancy, weaning weights, carcass merit or other productivity factors. Methane emission studies are a subset of the International Efficient Dairy Genome Project. Canada, United States, United Kingdom, Switzerland and Australia are all participating with an overall objective to improve feed efficiency and reduce methane emissions in dairy cattle using genomics. These two traits are not currently selected in the dairy industry.

It is estimated that breeding animals with increased feed efficiency and reduced methane emissions can reduce feed costs by $108 per cow per year and decrease methane emissions by an estimated 11 to 26 percent. Researchers at the University of Guelph plan to monitor a dairy herd at a new facility at Elora, Ont., this fall. Selecting dairy cows for feed efficiency and lower emissions may be more complicated than it is for beef animals because a host of factors like lactation, milk components, somatic cell counts, body condition score, feed efficiency and feed intake need to be considered in this project, said Filippo Miglior from the University of Guelph “You have to think very carefully about what is your trait and what you want to select for,” he said. About 125 cows will be placed in a custom designed tie-stall barn where feed is delivered and measured via a special computerized system. The first methane emissions will be measured by December, said Christina Baes of the university. All bulls used for artificially insemination are already genotyped and about five percent of cows have been surveyed. The cows will calve at this location and their offspring will be entered into the program. That information should start to reveal how the animals are similar

and different from one another. Ultimately, genomic indexes can be provided including information on methane emissions from individuals. To further test the research, cooperating farmers plan to test cattle in real-life situations. Sunalta Farms at Ponoka, Alta., could become the largest dairy feed monitoring installation in North America. The farm is participating in the research, which involves 450 cows to be monitored for feed intake, milk production and other factors. J.P. Brouwer, a partner in familyowned Sunalta Farms, sees the project as a good fit with what they are trying to accomplish in terms of animal welfare, productivity and longevity. “With this particular project, saying “yes” was incredibly easy. As a farm, we get individual intake information on our animals and we get scientists to evaluate it for us. There is huge benefit there for us,” he said at the meeting. “I don’t know if I totally understand what the deal is with (residual feed intake). My biggest interest is feed conversion, feed in and milk out for as long as possible because health traits need to be part of it. I think you will have better feed conversion with higher dry matter intake,” Brouwer said.

Alberta wheat growers call for improved grading system BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The Alberta Wheat Commission wants Canada to modernize its grain grading system and adopt grading procedures that more closely align with the demands of international wheat markets. In a Nov. 17 news release, the AWC said the Canadian wheat grading system needs to be reformed to “improve long-term profitability for farmers.” The AWC is calling on the Canadian Grain Commission to establish a market-based system that puts more emphasis on universally measured grain specifications and less on subjective visual assessments. Such a system would enhance the competiveness of western Canadian wheat growers and ensure that they receive fair market value for their grain, the AWC said. “We have observed an evolution in the way wheat is marketed to Canada’s customers,” said AWC chair Kevin Auch. “International buyers aren’t looking purely at CGC grades — they’re looking at universal quality specs. Modernizing our grading system is a necessary move to ensure Alberta’s farmers receive the maximum value for the quality of wheat they produce.” Canadian farmers do not sell their grain directly to international buyers, which means they rely on the systems in place to ensure it is meeting the needs of domestic and foreign buyers. To that end, the Alberta commission is recommending a revised system that uses accurate testing methods to identify potential downgrading factors, such as falling number tests for sprout damage and deoxynivalenol (DON) tests to assess the market impact of fusarium graminearum infection.

The AWC said grain companies are already using falling number tests at some delivery points. In addition, visual assessments of fusarium damaged kernels don’t always provide an accurate measure of DON and mycotoxin levels. “This crop year has resulted in variable quality for farmers in Alberta and across the Prairies,” said Auch. “We want to ensure that our grading system is not severely downgrading wheat that is considered good quality milling wheat in international markets.” Auch said it’s difficult to say how the current grading system is affecting producers’ bottom lines. However, he said any system that replaces subjective visual tests with objective analytical ones would give producers a better idea of what their crops are actually worth. “I don’t know if I’d go so far as to say that the current grading system should be replaced, because our grading system has served us well over the years,” he said. “But there are certain things that they can tweak … like fusarium assessments based on the DON test. “That’s one of the ways now that countries are buying their wheat. They’re looking at those DON levels … and they’re already buying on those specs and yet we’re using visual fusarium damaged kernels assessments on our grading system, rather than testing for DON.” Over time, the grading system will depend more on science-based tools and less on subjective visual assessments, he added. However, the transition will take time and will require a thorough consultation with the industry to assess costs, implementation issues and potential impacts. “The grain commission has been working towards ensuring that the grain grading system be based on science,” Gosselin said.

Some farmers want Canada to implement a grading system that emphasizes universally measured grain specifications rather than subjective visual assessments. | FILE PHOTO “We have specifically identified the move from subjective visual factors to objective analytical factors as a direction in which we want to take the grading system.” Gosselin said the eastern and western standards committees have already been advised of the CGC’s decision to move to a grading system based on analytical data as opposed to visual assessments.

The grain commission will be “establishing a team to advance this effort and it will engage heavily with affected producer groups,” he added. AWC expressed support for changes to mildew guides that were recently announced by the grain commission, but it also called on the commission to evaluate and align Canada’s mildew guides with U.S. standards.

The AWC raised its concerns over the existing grading system in a Nov. 14 letter addressed to CGC’s acting chief commissioner, Jim Smolik. A copy of that letter can be viewed a t a l b e r t aw h e a t . c o m / o u rprograms/markets/major-marketinitiatives/re-market-alignment-ofcanadian-wheat-grading-guides.

Prairie farmers planned Ottawa trek FROM THE ARCHIVES



he 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: Dec. 4, 1941 The Manitoba Federation of Agriculture threw its support behind the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool’s campaign to send a large delegation to Ottawa armed with a petition demanding a better deal for farmers. Producers wanted the government to revise its policies to establish a solid foundation for stabilizing Canadian agriculture. The Wartime Prices and Trade Board said price controls would exempt some farm produce when farmers sold it directly to dealers or processors. The list of exempted items included livestock, poultry, eggs, milk, cream, dairy butter, farm-made cheese, honey, maple syrup and fish.

50 years ago: Dec. 1, 1966 Farmers were arguing that they had very little to do with high retail prices, but the Dominion Bureau of Statistics begged to differ. Bureau data presented to a joint House of Commons-Senate committee investigating consumer prices showed that cattle and hog producers had received a large share of the increase in the retail price of pork and beef in the previous two years. Protein levels in Manitoba’s oat crop were lower than normal, prompting Cam Brown, a livestock nutritionist with the provincial government, to warn livestock and poultry producers that they might have to adjust their rations. Test samples were finding 8.8 to 9.5 percent protein compared to the 10-year average of 11.3 percent. 25 years ago: Dec. 5, 1991 Saskatchewan Premier Roy Romanow went to Ottawa looking for more federal aid for farmers and initially seemed to succeed with a commitment from Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. However, Agriculture Minister Don Mazankowski later denied that a commitment had been made for more aid and said he first wanted to see the impact of the $700 million that had already been promised.

Frances Birnie printed out a soil analysis sheet at the University of Saskatchewan’s soil testing laboratory in October 1976. The sheets were now being prepared by computer, and the new system was expected to hasten the return of information to the producer and take some of the pressure off staff during the peak soil testing period. | FILE PHOTO The federal government vowed not to sign an international trade deal if supply managed farmers were opposed. The implication of giving one sector of the economy a veto drew accusations that the government was attempting to divide the agricultural community. 10 years ago: Nov. 30, 2006 The Manitoba Pork Council

threatened legal action against the provincial government’s proposed ban of hog barn construction. “Our industry has now become the scapegoat in the face of an upcoming election,” said council chair Karl Kinloch. The Canadian Wheat Board and i t s m i n i s t e r, C h u c k S t r a h l , appeared to be on a collision course over what the board was

allowed to say in public. The government had earlier directed the board not to spend money on “advocating the retention of its monopoly powers,” but the CWB was refusing to remove a document from its website that responded to a federal government task force on how to eliminate the board’s single desk.

Rural policing goes outside the box Sask. RCMP say communities must play bigger role to keep themselves safe BY WILLIAM DEKAY SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Options are being explored as crime rises in rural Saskatchewan and resources for rural policing are stretched thinner. “Our capacity to respond can only take us so far,” RCMP assistant commissioner Curtis Zablocki, commanding officer of F division, said during the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities’ midterm convention last month. “We need to come up with other ways of policing these large and sometimes sparsely populated areas.” Zablocki said Saskatchewan was historically built on community values of looking out for each other, sharing civic responsibility and living up to community commitments. “As it turns out, community policing happens to be both our past and our future in Saskatchewan. Working together with all of us playing a role is more important than ever,” he said. “Communities get out of it what they put into it.… Because policing isn’t just our job, frankly, it’s a shared responsibility and we all have a role to play.” Zablocki said the current budget under the provincial police service agreement translates into 924 policing positions for rural Saskatchewan. He said police work is specialized and cannot accommodate parttime or substitution type duties such as is found in other profes-

sions. However, the RCMP are exploring ways to increase the numbers of front-line people. A reservists program has recently been implemented, which is hiring former or retired RCMP officers on a part-time basis to fill in as needed. “This program is slowly increasing in numbers, and in Saskatchewan we currently have 24 fully qualified reservists that serve in a variety of policing functions across the province,” he said. A small designated relief unit has also been set up, which is used when detachments run short of manpower or when the “perfect storm” develops. Zablocki said the RCMP is open to exploring partnerships and developing initiatives with local communities. “Communication, collaboration, co-operation — that’s where we’ll find our answers,” he said. He said crime reduction and prevention must be based in community engagement and mobilization. “While we might long for the days where we didn’t have to remove our keys from our vehicles, record the serial numbers of our ATVs and our equipment, or lock up our fuel tanks, those days are unfortunately gone,” he said. However, he said what isn’t gone is neighbours looking out for neighbours and keeping an eye out for each other’s property. Community-led programs include rural crime watch, agrowatch and citizens on patrol.

Hoping to be in the right place at the right time to catch the bad guys is not the most productive or strategic use of additional resources. CURTIS ZABLOCKI RCMP COMMANDING OFFICER OF F DIVISION

“While we do not maintain or lead these programs, we encourage and certainly support them,” Zablocki said. Each program is done within specific guidelines outlined by local police detachments within the parameters of the law. For example, he said the rural crime watch community was mobilized in Briercrest, Sask., in spring 2014 to help police catch truck thieves. He said the village activated its emergency phone tree; residents jumped into their trucks and onto their ATV’s and a pilot even took to the air to conduct a grid search. When the three teenaged suspects from Regina were spotted walking through a wet, muddy field that could not be accessed with four-wheel drive, a local farmer transported police officers in the bucket of his tractor. “That’s how they were actually apprehended. It puts a new meaning to, ‘throwing them in the bucket,’ ” Zablocki said.

Other community policing options that extend beyond traditional RCMP services include the recruitment of community safety officers. SARM was the driving force in getting this program off the ground. “CSOs focus their efforts on low risk public safety demands, things like traffic, liquor enforcement, bylaw enforcement. They can also have a key role in education and awareness and prevention,” he said. “Having the ability to respond in that kind of work frees up the RCMP to work on higher impact enforcement and public safety issues.” He said any community or RM can apply to bring a CSO on board or cost share with a neighbouring municipality. One benefit of the program is that a percentage of fine revenues are returned to the local government. “The RCMP fine revenue does not go to rural municipalities. It goes to some of the larger centres, but it doesn’t go to the smaller municipalities. That’s something we’ve been lobbying for,” said SARM president Ray Orb. He said more collaboration and communication is needed between the RCMP and members of SARM to boost rural policing as property related crime continues to increase. “There’s a little more urgency from our side. We need to improve things out in the rural areas fairly quickly, if we can,” he said. SARM is exploring the idea of RMs hiring their own RCMP officers, as do urban municipalities. “That option is open for rural municipalities. We just have to have the wherewithal to be able to

afford that because they’re already paying a fee towards policing from the RCMP,” said Orb. “There are options already, but I think we need to probably make them more streamlined, more efficient.” He said the rural crime watch in Saskatchewan used to be very active, but it fell by the wayside. “A lot of that goes back to the communities themselves. Some of the options are there. We just have to refine and remind people that they are there to be used,” he said. “We certainly don’t want rural people doing things on their own, trying to enforce the law themselves.” Zablocki said more police vehicles are currently patrolling the countryside because of the recent spike in crime in some parts of the province. “Hoping to be in the right place at the right time to catch the bad guys is not the most productive or strategic use of additional resources,” he said. “The truth is that police visibility most effects the perceptions that we are preventing crime, not necessarily the reality. What visibility can do is lessen the fear of crime.” However, Orb would like to see more police presence in RMs. “Our biggest complaint is, and we never blame the RCMP, but we don’t see as much of their presence as we would like,” he said. “We still believe that the presence of RCMP still is a deterrent to crime. Because they are spread thin, obviously they don’t have the power to that and so we’d like to see that changed.”





Canola growers urged to aim higher Canola council says producers can do better than four to six plants per sq. foot BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU


Canola growers at the Nov. 16 Powering Your Profits event in Lethbridge got a chuckle out of the title of Autumn Barnes’ presentation: Make Canola Great Again. The reference to U.S. Presidentelect Donald Trump’s campaign slogan was nevertheless appropriate as Barnes, of the Canola Council of Canada, encouraged growers to seek yield improvements. Her theme was stand establishment and a target plant density of seven to 10 plants per sq. foot. That won’t necessarily be achieved by seeding five pounds per acre in every canola field. “Five lb. an acre is something that we should not be doing in 2017,” said Barnes. “We can do better than that.” She suggested that growers set a target plant density, count the plants per sq. foot when they emerge, record that information and monitor the crop throughout the season to see if the density had good results. Barnes also said bigger isn’t necessarily better when it comes to seed size, at least up to a point. “With the open pollinated varieties and really small seeds, back in the day when we were kind of getting up to that three or three and a half grams per thousand, we were seeing an increase in vigor and once we hit that … it kind of plateaus,” she said. Seed weight of five to six grams per thousand is average but canola seed has considerable variability and growers need to take that into account. The TSW — thousand seed weight — is printed on the seed tag. “What I’d like to see is growers just checking because still so many growers don’t even know where to find their thousand seed weight,” Barnes said.

Bison handling code seeks public comment LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Canola growers should set a target plant density, count the plants per sq. foot when they emerge, record that information and monitor the crop throughout the season to see if the density had good results. | FILE PHOTO “I really think everybody should be setting a target plant density and seeding to that density. That’s logical. It makes sense. … There’s a million reasons why you should do it, but if you have a grower that for whatever reason is going to be seeding at five lb. per acre no matter what, I would really advise them to, at the very least, look at their seed tag and if they find that they have a really heavy seed lot, that they should put more seed in the ground because they’re going

to have fewer plants, fewer seeds per bag.” According to a 2010 weed survey, most canola growers aim for four to six plants per sq. foot, but Barnes recommends a higher goal. However, the decision depends on likely weed pressure in the field, ability for timely herbicide applications and the presence of herbicide tolerant weeds. Other considerations include seeding conditions, trash cover,

seeding date and confidence in equipment and operator. If flea beetles are likely to be a big threat, a higher target stand might allow growers to avoid spraying and still realize good yield, said Barnes. Similarly, a tight flowering window provided by a heavier density will allow more timely and effective spraying against sclerotinia.

The draft code of practice for the care and handling of bison has been released for public comment and will be open for input until Jan. 19. Notice of the comment period was announced today by the Canadian Bison Association and the National Farm Animal Care Council. “The code development committee has worked hard since 2014 developing the draft code,” said bison producer and code committee chair Mark Silzer in a news release. “The public comment period will allow us to check our work with a broader representative group. I encourage bison producers to weigh in with their input as the code will be an important tool for communicating how bison are raised in Canada.” An 11-person committee has been working on the code. It includes bison producers and representatives from veterinarians, animal welfare groups, government and the research field. Comments must be made online, where people can also review a report from the scientific committee that summarized research on priority welfare topics for bison. Comments made will be reviewed by the committee, which will alter the draft as needed and expects to release the final version in spring 2017. The draft can be found at www.

Industry explores alternative labels for blackleg resistance BY ROBIN BOOKER SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Concerns are increasing about how long blackleg resistant canola varieties will be able to protect farmers from surging disease pressure. Blackleg can inflict serious economic damage on the industry, and it already costs Canadian growers millions of dollars each year. There are also concerns that the disease can be used against the Canadian canola industry to deny market access, as China did earlier this year, saying it did not want to risk accidentally importing blackleg in shipments of Canadian canola. While all sectors of the industry can agree with the need to preserve resistance, it’s difficult for growers who’ve had a resistantrated variety fail to know which type of blackleg resistance no longer works in their fields and which may still be effective. The labelling system for blackleg resistance displays only if a canola variety is R (resistant), MR (moderately resistant), MS (moderately susceptible), or S (susceptible). “Right now, with the current labelling system that we have, there is no rotation at all because

for growers it’s a crap shoot of whether they are incorporating a new type of resistance in their rotation or not. It’s just a guess, and not even an educated guess,” said Clint Jurke, agronomy director at the Canola Council of Canada. The uncertainty on which blackleg resistance a grower should use has prompted calls for a labelling system that tracks the type of blackleg resistance a canola variety possesses, similar to what’s used in other rapeseed and canola-growing regions like France and Australia. It now sounds like those calls will soon be answered Jurke said the industry is developing scheme in which the type of blackleg resistant a canola variety has will be displayed on the label. “There is now information in there as to what type of resistance, how it performs in different fields or different racial structures of the pathogen. So we’ve been engaged with the industry over the past few years to see if there is a new type of labelling system that we can come up with,” Jurke said. In the Western Canada Canola/ Rapeseed Recommending Committee meetings this winter, the

CCC is expected to be involved in discussions on how the labelling system will work, including what type of resistance will be included on the labels. It promises to be a formidable task because the relationship between resistance in the canola germplasm and the various racial structures of the blackleg pathogen is complex. Stewart Brandt, manager of breeding operations at Bayer CropScience, said the industry should not adopt a labelling system that measures only the qualitative resistance in the germplasm. “It would seem quite simple to just have major dominant resistance genes, or qualitative resistance, and just keep rotating them, and that would best serve the industry. But some of the concern that I have with that kind of approach is the quantitative resistance, that is typically a lot more durable,” Brandt said. Quantitative resistance stems from a complex interaction between many genes in a variety’s germplasm, while qualitative resistance is often derived from a specific gene sequence, which can be relatively easy to identify with makers on the genome. Brandt said if a blackleg resistance labelling plan doesn’t

include quantitative resistance, seed companies will spend fewer resources trying to develop that type of resistance because it would have less economic incentive. “Going to one system over versus the other; i.e. going to qualitative resistance and focusing on that — there would be very little incentive for the industry or for seed developers to continue with the quantitative resistance, which is largely in the background of most of the germplasm grown in Western Canada,” he said. Australia has experienced more severe blackleg infestations than Canada. While much of the difference in the outbreaks can be accounted for by the harsh Canadian winter, it’s important to note there is a greater focus on rotating qualitative resistance in Australia. “We need to understand the disease a little better. Why have our disease infestations not been as severe as Australia while we’ve been largely relying on quantitative resistance for a number of years?” Brandt said. Jurke said the current proposal for the new labelling system looks to identify only the qualitative resistance genes. However, the existing labelling system with R, MR, MS, and S will be retained because it takes into

Plus, Jurke said, a long-term goal for new blackleg resistant labelling is to also include the quantative resistance. “Eventually, we’ll need to tease that out to come up with the quantitative,” Jurke said. “Anything is better than what we have right now. I think the industry understands we are going to take this step by step and whatever the new labelling system that comes out it’s likely not going to be perfect and it’s going to evolve over time.” Jurke said he believes most of the industry is ready to adopt new labels that denote the type of blackleg resistance a canola variety has. “We haven’t really heard any dissent at all from any of the life science organizations. So it seems like everyone is ready, it’s just a matter of working out the details of what this new classification system looks like,” Jurke said.

When canola gets to 100 bushels The Canola 100 Challenge is yielding results BY ROBIN BOOKER SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Of the eighty farmers that participated in the first year of AgriTrend’s Canola 100 Challenge, 16 decided to pay the $1,000 fee to have their crop verified. “Mother Nature took over and we won’t get the last four or so verified because they are buried underneath snow and rain, but we do have a list of about 16 verified results that will be unveiled on Dec. 7 at the Farm Forum event in Calgary,” said Agri-Trend’s Rob Saik. The Canola 100 contest will award the first grower to achieve 100 bushels per acre in a 50-acre plot with the use of new John Deere farm equipment. The winner gets to put 100 hours on each of the following units: a new John Deere tractor, air seeder, high clearance sprayer, swather and combine. Agronomy company AgCall performed the yield verification for the competition. “We have rules and protocols guidelines set up that was built by the group John Deere, Glacier FarmMedia and Agri-Trend,” said Sherri Rice, project manager for AgCall. One of the contest rules is that the 50 acre plot has to be square. “So it can’t be in an L or an X, or it can’t be in a circle. It has to be in a continuous square,” Rice said. “So our job is to measure and to

make sure that we have that 50 acres, or as close to the 50 acres to make sure that it is following that guideline.” AgCall also checked the combines and trucks to ensure they were empty before the plots were harvested. “We follow everything to the point that every bushel that came off that 50 acres was weighed and measured by a legal scale, and we take samples and what not,” she said. AgCall contracted one grading facility to grade all of the samples instead of using multiple facilities. “We’ve taken out all of the variables that we can so that everyone is on an even playing field, and all that matters is what technology the growers use on their farm to grow their canola crop,” Rice said. As well, an Agri-Trend representative attended the verifications to ensure the measurements were accurate. Rice saw some big canola crops this summer that were entered in the contest. “The leaps and strides canola has made to be here, having a 100 bushel per acre contest. It just seems crazy, but it’s here and it’s probably the way the future is going,” Rice said. SEE NEXT PAGE FOR MORE STORIES ABOUT THE CANOLA 100 CONTEST

Competitor for Agri-Trend Canola 100 challenge tried every trick in the book, but failed to significantly increase his canola yields BY ROBIN BOOKER SASKATOON NEWSROOM

When Rene Nielsen decided to enter Agri-Trend’s Canola 100 challenge, he thought it would be a good opportunity to try products and rates that he wouldn’t normally use. Nielsen has grown big canola crops in the past, and after discussions with his agronomist, Matt Gosling, they figured they might be able to pull off a yield around 100 bushels per acre. “We haven’t grown 100 bu. on 50 acres continuously, but we’ve grown 95 under irrigation,� Nielsen said. Gosling said the average annual production on this farm, including some canola field averages of 80 bu. per acre last year, led him to believe they would have a chance of winning the competition if the plot received 330 to 380 millimetres of rainfall throughout the year. The wheat stubble field received 340 mm of rain from May to Sept. 15. Nielsen’s farm, called Bruce Farms, is 13,000 acres and located near Cheadle, Alta. A feedlot is part of the operation, and its manure is used to increase the fertility of the cropland. “It (the field where the 50 plot is located) had three or four applica-

tions of manure over the last 15 years. We also put on a couple tonne of chicken manure we had available this spring,� Nielsen said. However, the manure was just the beginning of the fertilizer program, which Gosling helped develop. “ We p o u r e d a l l t h e q u o t e , unquote, snake oil you can pour onto a crop,� Gosling said. “We had boron, we had copper, we had chicken manure and we had a foliar fertility program. We had in-season macro nutrition, the whole works.� The plot also received seven foliar applications, and on paper the crop had the potential to exceed the 100 bu. per acre target. “We targeted 280 lb. per acre of N removal,� he said. However, the extra attention didn’t work. The fertility program cost $300 per acre more than what was done to the check field but yielded only 70 bu. per acre, which was 1.4 bu. per acre more than the check field. “We had this plot in the middle of a 400-acre field. The rest of the field did just as good, only a couple bu. short,� Nielsen said. “I wasn’t overly amazed with the nutritional program that we used.� Gosling said he was also disappointed with the yield results. “It was a hell of a way to learn, and

I’m glad we only did it on 50 acres and not more than that,� he said. “I know everybody is kind of looking for the silver bullet, but we poured everything to this crop.� Two Prebolt fungicides and two in-flower fungicides applications were used, but there was still some disease pressure that hurt yields. “There was late disease pressure,� Nielsen said. “ We ha d s c l e r t o n i a a n d w e couldn’t drive in the field to treat it at that point. So we kind of lost it there in the rain.� Nielsen said this would have been the year to reach 100 bu. per acre in canola because of the high amount of precipitation the crops received. However, diseases also favour wet years, and they can be difficult to reach on soggy fields, especially once the canola canopy closes in. Nielsen said some of the products they used this year likely won’t be used again, but he learned from the experience. “With the amount of time and money we spent on it, I wasn’t super satisfied with the outcome,� he said. “We learned from it and some of the things I want to keep playing around with.�

PULLING OUT THE STOPS Agronomist Matt Gosling said the 50-acre area contained some of the most productive soil on Rene Nielsen’s farm. Manure history is strong, but not excessive. Organic matter is around 5.5 percent and pH is 6.5. There were 4.9 inches of moisture in the first 24 inches of the soil profile in the spring on well-drained sandy loam soil. The zone also had elemental sulfur history as well. Gosling said the nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium-sulfur nutrient status of the soil was “the equivalent of a super-charged HEMI.â€? The field received 13.5 inches of rain from May to Sept. 15 and had 1,293 growing degree days. The following was done on this land: • three tonnes of chicken manure delivering about 70-35-64-20 • 300 pounds per acre of SuperCal broadcast

• seed target of nine to 10 plants per sq. foot assuming 50 percent mortality; variety was L252 • seed speed: 2.5 m.p.h.

AMS as an in-season nitrogen strategy at three leaf stage • seven in-season applications of foliar nutritional products

• five lb. per acre of CuSO4 and two lb. per acre of granular B broadcast

• seed primer applied • seeded May 3 with 108-31-0-0 side banded

• two prebolt fungicides and two in-flower fungicides at 20 percent and 14 days later

• light ProTill tillage

Farmers keep canola secrets under wraps BY ROBIN BOOKER SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Agri-Trend’s Canola 100 challenge is supposed to be competitive — at least to a point. But it also aims to bring together growers who use cutting-edge growing techniques so they can share knowledge, which benefits the entire industry. “The spirit of the contest is one where the competitors will learn from each other,” said Rob Saik of Agri-Trend. But while competition is good, some of the competitors are, well, very competitive. “I spent a lot of money, thousands of dollars experimenting around and I’m not really prepared to give out free information to other guys to come in. Why do I spend this money and there is no benefit to me?” said Joel Miller, who farms 4,000 acres near Avonlea, Sask. Miller, who had his crop yield verified in the Canola 100 contest, said sharing knowledge works in theory, but he is concerned that if everyone starts growing 100 bushel an acre canola, the price will drop and growers will make less money. “If I can figure it out and there is more land that comes up for rent or to buy, then I might be able to pay more based on being able to grow more bushels. So I’m not just willing to give free information to help other guys to benefit them,” Miller said. Janel Delage of Delage Farms near Indian Head, Sask., competed in the Canola 100 challenge and is also unwilling to share her agronomic advice. “How do I say this nicely? The things that we do on our farm, we would kind of like to keep to ourselves. So we’re not going to share,” Delage said. Saik said when growers enter the contest, the deal is that they will share their information. “Some of the information has not yet been filled in, but you can’t win the contest; you can’t participate if you don’t fill the data in. So we’ve got some work to do to backfill this,” he said. Saik said the competitive nature of the farmers, which he actually admires, is driving the secrecy. However, he said it’s in everyone’s interest to share and learn from one another. “I’d love to be able to share the results of the competition with the competitors themselves so they can see their fellow competitors. Sharing with the wider public should be done on more of an aggregated basis,” Saik said.

Bison prices strong at national sale Video footage of sale animals a success BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Prices at last week’s Canadian National Bison sale were 15 percent higher than last year, buoyed by a $35,000 high-seller. Sale chair Nolan Miller from Silver Creek Bison at Binscarth, Man., said organizers were expecting prices to be as strong as last year or higher. “It’s a meat-driven industry and we’re at all-time highs with the rail price,” he said. “It’s over $6 a pound now, Canadian, on the rail.” Producers are spending money to improve their genetics because they are making money on their meat animals, he said. However, the $35,000 price paid for a yearling bull still surprised many in the crowd at Canadian Western Agribition. Miller said there are always those who chase certain animals and are willing to pay to get them. The bull, consigned by Bison Spirit Ranch of Oak Lake, Man., went to Greg Pagan of Snowden, Sask. One two-year-old bull sold for $28,000 and another went for $20,000. The top-selling female was the reserve grand champion, a yearling heifer from Silver Creek, which sold for $9,000 to Borderland Agriculture of Pierson, Man. Silver Creek also showed the grand champion female, a bred two-year-old.

In the bull division, XY Bison Ranch of Fort St. John, B.C., showed the grand champion, and Rough Bark Bison from Yellow Grass, Sask. had the reserve. A total of 54 animals sold for $433,750 and an average $8,032. Miller said young or new producers can still afford to get into the industry. “Heifers have been a nice steady kind of price right through, so it still makes it very affordable to get in,” he said. “They don’t have to buy a $30,000 bull. There’s lots of $10,000 bulls that are really good bulls.” He called it a good sign that there were a number of new faces at the Canadian Bison Association convention that was held just before the sale. “We need to build the herd,” he said. The strong meat demand comes mainly from the United States. The bison association has estimated that 44 percent of slaughter animals come from Canada. Meanwhile, the sale marked the first time at Agribition that the bison were sold by video. Instead of running them through the chutes, organizers took video footage of each animal in the pens behind the sale ring and bidders watched on screens. Miller said some were skeptical of the move, but it worked out well. The decision was made as a way to reduce stress on the animals and risk to the handlers.

“We’ve been at Agribition for a very long time, from my grandpa to my dad to my mom and me,” she said. “This is the one sure plan we make every year as a family, to bring cattle to Agribition. It’s just cool to be recognized for your attendance and contribution.” Serhienko comes from a purebred Charolais operation and is




warded Agribition scholarships

ships for their involvement with Canadian Western Agribition as exhibitors, competitors or volunteers studying agribusiness at Lakeland College in Vermilion, Alta. “I want to probably do something in ag lending or finance,” she said, adding she will always have cattle as well. Cassandra Gorrill Cassandra Gorrill from Lindsay, Ont., first came to Agribition in 2010. “I bought a heifer from a farm in Saskatchewan, so we decided to come out and watch her in the show,” she said. “I did showmanship here and it kind of became the bug to come back every year.” In 2015, she won the National 4-H and Youth Judging Competition at the show and judged the First Lady

Classic. Now she helps show Herefords for Agribition director Chris Lees. Gorrill is in her fourth year studying animal science at the Ontario Agricultural College at the University of Guelph. “It’s hopefully a stepping stone to vet school,” she said. However, she has a back-up plan to obtain a master’s degree focusing on beef genomics, and she, too, says she plans to always own cattle. “Good cattle are good cattle, but Herefords are definitely where I’ve invested my time and they’re my favourite,” she said. Emma Nicholas Emma Nicholas from Milestone, Sask., can’t pick a favourite breed

from the two her family raises: Gelbvieh and Hereford. The family has now begun breeding their Gelbvieh cows to Hereford bulls. “We’re definitely shifting our focus to purebred Hereford, but I still couldn’t say which is my favourite,” she said. Nicholas is in Grade 12 and plans to attend the University of Saskatchewan to study either agribusiness or animal science. “The agriculture industry is really growing,” she said. “There’s lots to learn and lots of job opportunities.” Nicholas grew up at Agribition. Her family has been showing cattle at the show since before she was born, and her involvement in 4-H has helped maintain a passion for

the industry. “It’s my first love,” she said. Morgan Heidecker Morgan Heidecker also credits 4-H and family involvement for her love of the beef cattle industry. She grew up on Triple H Farm at Middle Lake, Sask., and is in her second year studying agribusiness at the U of S. “I’m definitely going to be looking for something in the ag industry, and I think my business background will set me apart and give me an advantage,” she said. She and her siblings are integral to Triple H, and she owns five cattle of her own. Heidecker said Agribition is great for networking and has helped her

and the other scholarship winners make lifelong friends. “You come down here and you’re all competing, but at the end of the day, you all appreciate each other’s cattle,” she said. Megan McLeod & Tyrell Hicks The two other winners were Megan McLeod from Cochrane, Alta., who is pursuing a commerce degree at the U of S, and Tyrell Hicks from Mortlach, Sask., who is studying welding and is a member of the rodeo team at Cochise College in Douglas, Arizona. Hicks received the William M. Farley Memorial Scholarship for contributions to the show through volunteerism.

David Whitaker took home a championship buckle from his first trip to Canadian Western Agribition. Five judges deemed the auctioneer from Ames, Iowa, the best among four competitors in the Winners Circle auctioneer competition. “I’m humbled to be a champion on such a big international stage,” he said. Whitaker typically sells farmland in Iowa and sells livestock only a couple of times a year. At Agribition, the competitors auction the horse pull teams to sponsors to raise money for STARS ambulance. The entrants were the top four selected from video submissions before the show. They are judged on their speed, clarity, rhythm and overall presence. Whitaker, who with his wife raises purebred Angus cattle, said Agribition is all about competition. “What we’re here to do is to promote our industry and showcase agriculture, and one of the ways we do that is through competition,” he said.

“It brings out the best innovation, the best quality, the best everything. In Canada, you’re doing an absolutely outstanding job.” He said he had been sending photographs of cattle home. “I’ve already told my wife we need to come up next year so we can look at the cattle again so that we can maybe bring some home back to the States,” he said. Whitaker spent some time ahead of Agribition at auction marts in Moose Jaw, Sask., Weyburn, Sask., and Saskatoon with auctioneers he has met through past competitions. During the show, he worked as a ring man at the bison sale. Asked about the recent election of Donald Trump as U.S. president, he said there has been some talk about more protectionist policies such as country-of-origin labeling, and he hopes the U.S. and its trading partners can work together for the benefit of all. “I do hope that just because we c ha n g e d p i l o t s o n t h e p l a n e doesn’t need to mean that people hope the plane goes down,” Whitaker said.

U.S. Gelbvieh breeders make trek to Agribition BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

REGINA — The Sickler family has travelled from North Dakota to Saskatchewan for the last eight years to attend Canadian Western Agribition. The Regina show is among the closest livestock events that the family attends each year, said Klint Sickler. Prairie Hills Gelbvieh, which is located near Gladstone, N.D., has developed a long-term trade relationship with Canadian breeders such as Vern and Eileen Davidson of Ponteix, Sask., and Rodney and Tanya Hollman of Royal Western Gelbvieh in Innisfail, Alta. Sicklers’ Canadian friends convinced them to try Agribition when the borders opened after the BSE crisis. They also show at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado, and the Northern International Livestock Expo at Billings, Montana, but both shows are a considerable distance compared to the 500 kilometre drive to Regina.

Twenty percent of their business is with Canadians, and there is some concern among these producers about what may happen with the free flow of cattle now that U. S. P re s i d e nt- e l e c t D o na l d Trump has indicated he wants to renegotiate or make changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement. “We have developed a niche on the north side of the border,” he said. Sickler does not want to lose the trade that has been nurtured since his family got into the Gelbvieh business in 1985. The Sicklers became Gelbvieh breeders when Klint’s grandfather saw them at the Black Hills Stock Show and came home with two animals. They had raised registered polled Herefords since 1946. “At the time, the Hereford market fell apart,” he said. The family decided to go in a different direction. They started a breeding-up program, in which the cattle eventually became 15/16 Gelbvieh. They

Trisha Sickler of Prairie Hills Gelbvieh at Gladstone, North Dakota, led this heifer into the Canadian Western Agribition sales ring. It sold for $5,200. The Sickler family has been coming to the show for the last eight years and has developed some strong Canadian connections. | BARBARA DUCKWORTH PHOTO have about 150 registered cows and an embryo program and have started a Red Angus component working with Canadian producers to form the nucleus of the herd. The two herds will not be blended. They have not pursued the Balancer program that consists of catt l e t h a t a re 2 5 t o 7 5 p e rc e n t Gelbvieh with the rest Angus or Red Angus breeding. “Balancers are popular, but we

tried to keep everything pure. Our customers want purebred cattle,” Sickler said. Prairie Hills has hosted a sale for the last 30 years and watched the markets move up and down. Many of the family’s customers are commercial buyers, but they are not sure what might happen in the seed stock sector this year now that the commercial market has crashed. Bull prices were exciting

last year, but that could swing the other direction in 2017. “The seed stock side has not been tested yet,” he said. “Our commercial market is substantially lower.” The Sicklers participated in the Agribition Gelbvieh show, selling two heifers for $5,200 and $4,750, respectively.





Citizens vow to stop Ontario landfill Plans call for the dumping of waste from across the province into a limestone quarry in Zorra Township BY JEFFREY CARTER FOR THE WESTERN PRODUCER

ZORRA, Ont. — Despite massive opposition and an approval process that could last for years, plans for a 17 million tonne landfill in southwestern Ontario are moving forward. Currently, a limestone quarry of almost 200 acres is the preferred site for Walker Environmental. It is located in Zorra Township, about two kilometers from the township of South-West Oxford, the Town of Ingersoll and the Thames River. Plans call for the quarry hole to receive commercial, industrial and institutional waste over a 20-year period. While tipping fees have yet to be established, gross re v e nu e s c o u l d a p p ro a c h o r exceed $1 billion. Bryan Smith and Suzanne Crellin, members of Oxford People Against the Landfill, are playing a lead role in opposing the project. “Once the leachate gets into the groundwater, it would flow for kilometres per day because of the geology in this area,” Crellin said. “I have to bring my kid up next to this and he has to drink the tap water. It has to be safe. There is no other option but to stop this.” The pair said 73,000 letters opposing the landfill have been sent to either Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne or Environment Minister Glen Murray. Oxford MPP Ernie Hardeman, who opposes the project, said it’s a credible number, and the approval process could take years to complete. Walker Environmental has already invested heavily in the project and operates a landfill in Niagara. Fred Freeman, the deputy mayor of Ingersoll, said he will not budge from his opposition. The town has been setting aside funds and has as much as $100,000 a year available for the fight. Oxford County Warden and South-West Oxford Mayor David Mayberry is also opposed to the site. He said Oxford has a 60 percent landfill diversion rate with its residential waste, which is a good number, but waste from other sources is exported out of the county. Mayberry said Oxford can do better and supports landfill diversion rates approaching 100 percent over time. He encourages other municipalities to follow suit. He said there may be merit in moving to a regional approach on the waste issue so less emphasis is placed on exporting the problem. “We question the suitability of the site because it’s right on bedrock, fractured bedrock. The concern in the county, and I think for council, is whether it is possible make that site safe,” he said. Zorra Mayor Margaret Lupton said she is open to working with Walker Environmental, but only if the company is successful with its application. Payments to affected municipalities may be possible. Walker representative Steve Hollingshead said waste being put in the landfill at the site could come from anywhere in the province,

including Oxford County, but most of it would likely come from Toronto. Unlike the Green Lane landfill west of London, Hollingshead said

Walker’s Niagara landfill doesn’t stink. Before trucks are fully unloaded, the waste is already being buried and that’s the plan for the Zorra location. He also said steps are being taken to deal with leachate from the site, the top concern for area residents. While Smith and Crellin describe the landfill containment liner as being the thickness of a coin, that’s just one of its components, said Hollingshead. It would actually be close to 3 1/2 metres thick, with two compacted layers of clay and two tiled and gravelled layers, from which leachate is drained away and subsequently treated.

Hollingshead said the liner design is the safest design approved by the Ontario Ministry of Environment and is used at Walker’s Niagara location. He is the designer of the latest section of the landfill operated by Walker in Niagara where the same technology is used. The safety of the liner design and overall design of the landfill have been challenged by experts hired by Oxford People Against the Landfill. Asked why Walker is interested in the site, Hollingshead said there’s already an existing hole and, according to Fry, the site is already

designated as industrial. Along with bringing science that speaks against the viability of the site, OPAL maintains that Walker Environmental has failed to follow proper procedures with its application and says the site o w n e r, C a r m e u s e L i m e a n d Stone, already has a site rehabilitation plan in place that doesn’t include a quarry. The group also has support from the Chippewas of the Thames First Nations, which maintains that it should have been consulted since the Thames River passes through their land and is sacred to their community.




AG NOTES NEW MARKET OPPORTUNITIES IN CHINA Federal Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay recently concluded his second mission to China to secure new export opportunities for Canadian agricultural producers and processors. MacAulay and a delegation of more than 100 industry representatives from across Canada visited the cities of Qingdao, Beijing and

Shanghai. Over the 10-day mission, meetings were held with Chinese ministers, agriculture and agri-food businesses and exporters. MacAulay also attended two major trade shows in Qingdao and Shanghai to help promote Canadian products. Canadian industry representatives said one-third of the 5,500 leads will result in future business. They also reported $37 million in on-site sales and $230 million in

anticipated sales over the next year, as well as a significant number of on-site sales and leads that will generate business. Canada exported more than $6 billion worth of agricultural, agrifood and fish and seafood to China last year. Top agricultural and agri-foods products include canola seed and canola oil ($2.6 billion), soybeans ($588 million), non-durum wheat ($333 million) and dried peas ($314 million).

L I V E STO C K P R O D U C E R S RECEIVE TAX RELIEF The federal government has released a list of designated regions in Alberta, Ontario and Quebec where livestock tax deferrals have been authorized for 2016 because of drought. Low moisture levels resulted in significant forage shortages for livestock producers in those provinces, forcing some producers to sell all or part of their breeding herd.

Producers can defer a portion of their 2016 sale proceeds of breeding livestock until the next year to help replenish the herd. The cost of replacing the animals in the next year offsets the deferred income and reduces the tax burden associated with the original sale. Only producers located in the designated areas are eligible for the tax deferral. Additional designations are being added to the list and will be released as soon as possible.

I will not limit my potential, cut corners or compromise on quality. I will do things right the first time. I will work tirelessly to achieve my goals. I will make my farm a true reflection of me.

Meet Agribition’s supreme champions BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

REGINA — Winning a prestigious award like the supreme beef championship at Canadian Western Agribition can be a life changing experience. For Sean Enright of Renfrew, Ont., getting the nod at the grand finale event Nov. 26 was completely unexpected. He has been showing his Angus bull EF Titan 545 all summer and won most of the events, including grand champion at the Agribition Angus open show. “I didn’t expect it. When we won the champion Angus bull here, that was all I wanted to do, so this has all been icing on the cake for us,” he said. The young sire by SAV Harvestor 0338 has had a successful show career and won the supreme championship at Expo Boeuf in Victoriaville, Que., Thanksgiving weekend. “We said if he had won we would come west.” The Enright family tries to enter Agribition every other year. The trip from their Ontario farm can take two days, so it requires a big commitment and confidence to come that far to compete against cattle that have already been champions elsewhere. “It means a lot to come all the way from Ontario and do this,” he said. The bull is owned in partnership with Cavanhill Farms of Kinburn, Ont., and will be retiring from the show circuit and returning home next March to breed cows. The family is a third generation farm and has been in the Angus business for 15 years. They have 80 purebred cows and 450 Angus influence commercial cows. The grand champion female went to show veterans Lee and Dawn Wilson of Bashaw, Alta. Their female with a bull calf at side was also grand champion at the Olds Fall Classic and Agribition, which was held Nov. 21-26. It is owned in partnership with Bill and Gerry Kokkelink of Hurst Mount Farms in Sydney, B.C. The cow was named DMM Blackbird 105A, and the calf was by SAV International 2020. The bull calf was reserve supreme in the President’s Classic held earlier at the show. It takes determination and hard work to stay on top the way MillerWilson Angus has over the years. They have also cultivated a degree of modesty. “We were last in every class the first time we showed at Agribition,” Dawn Wilson said. “I looked down that line, and I knew our cattle weren’t good enough. I thought we needed to do better.” This is the third time they have won the supreme award, and every nod of recognition is treasured. There is also some sentimentality for the couple, who have judged cattle all over the world. The build-

They also became grandparents this year, but there are no plans to slow down. “We are hoping the little guys like

it, too,” she said. This year’s show featured 40 bulls and 31 females, many with calf at side. Entries came from across

Canada, and many were multiple winners.

Veteran in ring wins $3,500 prize with Angus heifer in beef show Grade 11 student also won junior champion at the open Angus show BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

REGINA — For many young cattle enthusiasts, the best experience comes from the junior shows. Garrett Liebreich has been an active showman since he was 12, and this year he won the junior beef extreme at Canadian Western Agribition. The prize comes with $3,500 and is a great confidence builder. His parents, Trent and Janelle Liebreich, own Merit Cattle Co. at Radville, Sask., where they raise about 180 Angus. They have been involved with the breed since 2009. “They are some of the most hard working cows there is out there,” Garrett said. His family brought 15 head to the show, and throughout the week of Nov. 21-26, they were busy grooming animals, talking with potential customers and showing cattle in the ring. His champion was also a junior champion at the open Angus show. He has also shown females at the Swift Current All Breeds Junior Show in Swift Current, Sask., where he won reserve supreme in 2014 and supreme in 2015. He won champion Angus at the junior Agribition extreme last year with a bred and owned female. This year’s winner had the same kind of pedigree. “She was the same cow family as the ones I have been showing,” he said. A Grade 11 student, he is active in 4-H and junior Angus programs and finds time for school and hockey. The future may be study-

ing animal science and working with purebred cattle. It is a busy life for a 16 year old. “You find the time. Family first, then cattle second, school third,” he said. More than 150 entries showed at the junior event with entries from Ontario to British Columbia.

Reserve went to Kacey Adams of Forestburg, Alta., with a Red Angus heifer. The champion bred and owned exhibit was awarded to Kayla Boot of Bath, Ont., with a Hereford heifer.

In a lifetime worth of work in cattle research, John McKinnon has watched time and again as the beef industry has ebbed and flowed. He remembers as recently as two years ago an industry that was enjoying record prices and profits. But he also cautiously notes the inevitable lows that trail any highs. “Calf prices were high, profit margins in feeding cattle were the likes that had never been seen before. Many in the industry were optimistic about expansion. Then we moved into the last two years, and we’ve seen a dramatic drop in prices. That’s the nature of the industry,” he says. As Beef Industry Research Chair and a professor of animal and poultry science at the University of Saskatchewan, McKinnon is on the front lines of cutting-edge research in his field. In his experience, investing in the latest technologies and research is the best path toward reducing the impact of market declines. That investment comes in the form of the Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence (LFCE), a unique complex that unites every link in the livestock production chain under a single banner at the U of S. “If we’re going to have a sustainable beef industry, we have to have the latest research, the latest technology, the development of people … who have the background and training to be able to withstand the challenges of the industry,” he says. McKinnon’s work revolves around research that’s nearing commercial application. He has helped shape areas such as cattle feeding, carcass quality and the development and testing of new feed while pursuing reduced production costs. In his own field, the LFCE will augment his research in immediate and obvious ways. “The facilities and techniques that will be available to us are ones that we just do not have access to today. It will greatly expand the scope of the research that we will be able to do.” McKinnon is also excited to see the ways that the LFCE will benefit the U of S and fortify its place as a leader in livestock and forage research. It will also help to attract new collaborators and that same influx of new minds will help bolster the university’s academic and research teams. “As we hire new faculty and look at faculty replacement, these individuals are going to have the chance to not just utilize a world-class facility for their research but to have the ability to build collaborations with people from across the country.” He adds that the boost created by the LFCE won’t be limited to the U of S, but will expand outward into the rest of Canada and beyond. “As the Saskatchewan industry grows and grows, the Canadian industry trends in the same fashion. We’re not independent of it,” says McKinnon. “It’s going to have an impact nationally and internationally, as well as through students that we train, and so on.” McKinnon has seen great enthusiasm for the LFCE project in Saskatchewan and elsewhere. “There is tremendous buy-in. When I go to Alberta or Manitoba and talk about it, people are excited about it,” says McKinnon. “Anticipation is building for it, and that’s a great thing to see.”

This year will be memorable because the farm, which is owned by Chad Wilson and his family at Wawota, Sask., sold a bull calf for $70,000 to Jack McAughey of Medonte Highland Polled Herefords of Orillia, Ont., and NCX Polled Herefords of Brosseau, Alta. The deal was for full possession and two-thirds interest. This was the top sale of Agribition, which was held Nov. 21-26. “We knew there was lots of interest in him. He’s a kind of combination bull that puts a lot of good things together,” said Wilson. “This guy is an outcross pedigree from a calving ease bull, but he still has the power.” The bull, named Haroldsons Totem 200Z 5D, is the son of American sire Churchill Red Bull 200Z, and the bidding was noisy and competitive at the Nov. 24 sale. Born in February 2016, the bull was the result of a semen package that Wilson purchased last year. “This calf is out of a first calf heifer, and the cow has turned out really good,” he said. “Sh e i s g o i n g t o b e a d o n o r female.” They also sold a flush on that cow for $12,000 at the same sale to Ontario buyers. The cow originally came from Blairs.Ag. The calf was named senior bull calf champion at the Nov. 25 Hereford show, and goes to Ontario early next year. It is likely to appear at the Royal Agriculture Winter Fair in Toronto. The family has done well at past Agribitions. In 2015, they won grand champion bull and for the sixth time this year they were named premier breeders and exhibitors. The national Hereford sale offered 23 lots for a total $223,750 in sales and an average price of $9,728. The high-selling bred heifer from Harvie Ranching sold for $33,000.

Mycoplasma: what can we do about it? ANIMAL HEALTH



hen talking to feedlot owners and backgrounders, one question almost always comes up: “is there anything new out there to combat mycoplasma?” There are things being worked on, but it is not an easy fix. Researchers have found that certain procedures, vaccines and handling animals in ways that limit stress (often easier said than done) can go a long way in reducing incidents. When cases arise, decisions need to made early on whether to treat, ship or euthanize for the welfare of the calf. Mycoplasma comes in many forms but feedlots mainly see the respiratory and joint forms. The respiratory form is often indistinguishable from other common causes of pneumonia in the feedlot and the joint form can be similar to histophilus abscesses. A great number of chronically ill animals in feedlots would play a role in the incidents of mycoplasma, if lab specimens were submitted to verify what your veterinarian had diagnosed. These cases cost the feedlot industry millions in treatment and labour costs, as well as adding to costs due to increased deaths and chronically ill animals that need to be euthanized. With mycoplasma, we must concentrate on prevention. Treatment is limited, even though a few antibiotics have indications for mycoplasma on the label. These antibiotics are designed as metaphylactic treatments, to be used on groups of animals to ward off or minimize an expected large outbreak. After a few weeks in a feedlot, a l m o s t a l l c a l v e s h av e b e e n exposed and are carr ying the organism, yet in well-managed yards that buy preimmunized and preconditioned calves, the incidents can be kept to a minimum. In cattle, mycoplasma is a secondary invader, which means in the case of respiratory disease it often comes in secondary to the viral pathogens, mostly IBR. Other respiratory bacteria such as mannheimia, pasteurella or histophilus can also become established and set the lungs up for the invasion of mycoplasma later. A good number of these infections may then spread to joints. Once in the joints, especially if more than one joint is involved, the chances of recovery are slim. Infected animals then become welfare issues and often lots of money in antibiotics, painkillers and other medications is spent before the decision is made to euthanize. In the bison industry, mycoplasma is almost always a primary pathogen and can cause considerable death loss in native populations of calves, cows and bulls. There appears to be immunity

established once the disease goes through, but death losses can reach high levels on initial exposure. Anything that reduces stress or reduces the likelihood of the other respiratory bugs should theoretically reduce the incidence of mycoplasma pneumonia. As veterinarians, we always talk about reducing stress. Transportation, processing stress, weather conditions, parasites and exposure to other cattle all play a role in determining whether calves get sick. As cow-calf producers, we can control the preimmunization. Feedlots then can ask for preimmunized calves, which represent the vast majority in Canada.

The question then is what do we pre-immunize for? Cow-calf producers vaccinate their calves younger and reap the benefits of having fewer calves get sick on summer pasture. If the boosters are then given at weaning, we should, in theory, see less respiratory disease. If we can avoid unnecessary transportation stress by selling directly to feedlots through satellite or online sales, cattle go directly from source to feedlot, reducing shipping. When it comes to handling animals for transportation, the distance the animals are shipped may not be as significant as reducing the number of times they are loaded and unloaded.

As well, various electrolyte formulations have been tried to minimize shrink. Too much shrink is detrimental and a sign of stress. Producers should also have parasites removed to help increase gains and boost the immune response to vaccines. It gives feedlot owners healthier animals with less propensity to get sick. Less sickness leads to less mycoplasma. Prevention is the absolute key when it comes to this disease. Don’t hold your breath for an industry-saving vaccine or treatment drug for mycoplasma. Current practices appear to have death losses going down on average,

and as we prevent the other respiratory pathogens, so too is the incidence of mycoplasma dropping. With more collaboration between the cow-calf sector (first line of defence), trucker (second line of defence), backgrounder (third line of defence) or feedlot owner (last line of defence), we can all do our part. We may not be able to totally eliminate it, but at least we can keep mycoplasma at bay by using the best prevention strategies we know.

Rocky road for commodities


Rabobank analyst says lower commodity prices will challenge farmers and companies alike BY ROBIN BOOKER SASKATOON NEWSROOM

BANFF, Alta. — Lower commodity prices are going to prove challenging not only for farmers but also for the companies that sell services and products to them, says a senior analyst at Rabobank. “Over the next five years, we see with 75 percent probability corn prices will be at or below $4.10 a bushel,” Kenneth Zuckerberg said at Bayer’s Agronomy Conference in Banff Nov. 15. “So that’s the challenge near term for the farming community that has been operating at much higher levels.” Less growth in the U.S. ethanol sector and lower Chinese demand for feed grain, partially because of improvements in feed use efficiency in that country, will stall demand for corn. “When you think about the commodity super cycle, a lot of the growth in corn in particular came from the ethanol trade and that’s sort of no longer part of the



picture,” Zuckerberg said. The U.S. is also coming off three strong production years, and the country’s corn carryover is reaching record highs. “That is bringing more supply on a market that already has a lot of supply,” he said. Many U.S. growers are already losing money and need to become lower cost operators, which means they will have to gain in scale and efficiency, he said. “We think now is an interesting opportunity for them (farmers) to consider mergers or consolidating with other entities,” he said.

“Another factor here is that the average age of U.S. farmers is approaching 60, and to the extent that one doesn’t have a succession plan, it sort of gives us another impetus to consider this,” Zuckerberg said. Zuckerberg said larger farming operations will be able to invest more in technology, including better seed, process and equipment. “As grain prices have fallen, farmer spending in general has come down,” he said. “So with the pressure of farmer bottom lines, it also translates to the pressure on the farm input companies selling to those farmers.” There has already been significant consolidation of companies on the farm input side. “We have had a plethora of deals in the past 18 months : DowDupont, Chem China-Syngenta, Agrium and Potash (Corp.) right here in Canada, and of course the proposed acquisition of Monsanto by Bayer,” Zuckerberg said. Zuckerberg expects a rough road ahead for companies that offer agricultural technology ser-

vices, and he sees only a handful of larger companies making it through the lower end of this commodity cycle. It might not be the best time to invest in smaller agricultural technology companies, he added, because it is hard to generate revenues when the primary business model is selling to farmers at a time when their revenues are down. “I think with the farm management software companies, there are two or three of them that are in pretty good shape, but there are a lot of me-too products that I think will run out of funding,” Zuckerberg said. However, Zuckerberg thinks some agricultural tech companies will be able to secure funding and stay profitable, even through a period of lower crop prices. They are companies that have proven technology that marries agronomic science with innovation, such as specialty plant nutrients, biological products and other seed advancements. “Companies without either large revenues or proven technology to

Analyzing margins of net profit can be eye-opening PERSPECTIVES ON MANAGEMENT



here’s a saying that you can’t go broke making a profit. True enough — or

is it? My September column looked at averages of financial performance. How many years out of 10 would you consider to be “winners” and how many would be “losers?” The remaining years are in the grey zone: not so good but then, not so bad, either. Many farmers I talk to would be happy to get “winners” three out of 10 years, as long as they could limit the “losers” to two or three. Table 1 is a summary of a farm’s income statement, taken from a real farm. It’s the data that I used for my September article. If you look at the net income values, you’ll see a “winner” and a “loser” in the five-year block with the others being in the so-so category. Adding up the net income over the five years produces a total of $697,874. It’s hard to go broke when you’re making a profit. Or is it? Let’s look a little deeper at where the margins of profit are coming from. Table 2 is the same as Table 1 with one major difference. Notice that it has a line inserted called net operating profit margin. Remember, this is real data taken from a real farm. You’ll have noticed quite a bit more red ink at the net operating profit margin line. Net operating profit is the margin of profit from core activities, such as grain, livestock, dairy and vegetables. It’s revenue from product sales after subtracting all the expenses, including amortization on buildings and equipment, that are required to produce the crop and raise the animals. These activities are directly associated with the primary production on a farm. Revenue from these activities can be thought of as recurring revenue — the businesses farmers are in. The other revenue categor y includes rebates, patronage dividends, gains or losses on the sale of capital assets, incidental revenue (a little bit of custom work that comes along every so often), surface leases and government payments such as AgriStability. These sources of revenue are not associated with core activities and are not something you would count on as being recurring. Some of the other revenue items, such as rebates and surface leases, will certainly occur every year. However, while the other revenue items are all genuine income and contribute to overall net income, they are not what you are in the business of farming for. Some farmers will argue that AgriStability payments are associated with production issues and should be included in the general revenue section rather than other revenue. However, if it were my farm, I would want to know what margins of profit it was generating before

having to rely on government program handouts. There’s another saying — businesses, farms included, must report positive net operating profit margins to be sustainable. Compounding net operating profit margin losses may not cause

a farm to go broke. Most farms simply have too much equity for that to happen. However, sustained net operating profit margin losses will become unmanageable at some point, requiring really difficult decisions. Look at the financial statements


that you get from your accountant. Many w ill include only a net income line. It can be deceiving. In the farm statement shown in the tables, the five-year total net income is $697,874, while the net



operating profit margin total is -$387,137. That’s a big difference. Terry Betker is a farm management consultant based in Winnipeg. He can be reached at 204-782-8200 or

Bison producers shouldn’t cater to packers, says consultant BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Bison should carve its own path to the meat counter rather than follow the beef model, says a beef producer and industry consultant. Brenda Schoepp told producers at the Canadian Bison Association annual convention that they should avoid having to conform to what packers want. “Do not go the way of the dairy industry and also the beef industry and focus on single trait selection,” she said. “You don’t want to fall into the

Bison is earning a $5 premium over beef on live weights, $20 more on trim and $46 more on tenderloins. packer driven mentality.” She said the beef industry conforms to the packer standard of a carcass between 650 and 940 pounds that leaves producers victim to price swings. “As soon as we have a devaluation of not just meat but more importantly, hide, everything rolls back to the primary producer,” she said. “It’s really critically important that bison are not treated like beef.”

IDEAS, INNOVATION, AND KNOWLEDGE CropSphere 2017 – January 10 & 11 Registration closes January 3, 2017

Packers developed the price grids that beef producers use, and Schoepp said if the bison industry wants to develop a grid they should do it themselves. She said bison are earning a $5 premium over beef on live weights, $20 more on trim and $46 more on tenderloins. However, she said hide prices are the most important thing to watch because the money is in hides and

byproducts rather than meat. “When we started losing 15 percent on the hide starting in early 2014, we knew that meat values would start to fall,” she said of the beef sector. “You’ve got a very low hide value right now, and you shouldn’t.” Schoepp encouraged bison producers to find a value chain model that works for them and rely less on the U.S. market because politics,

trade deals and non-tariff barriers can all threaten. As well, bison producers will be stuck if all the animals conform to a packer-driven standard from the United States, and then the market is lost. They will have to move to branded programs or something to differentiate their product to find premiums. She also said bison producers should stop comparing their meat to beef and capitalize on the characteristics that make it command a premium price.
