Canola trials set for spring

Ag minister opposed | Board spends $65 million for grain ships


Old trials replaced | New canola trials will use variety specific weed control programs SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A new program that evaluates the performance of canola varieties grown in Western Canada will be taking root this spring. The program will cost $1 million this year and receive funding from grower groups in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. It will include test sites in all three provinces. Additional funding will come from seed companies, which will pay fees to enter canola varieties in the trials. As of late last week, all but two of the major canola seed companies — Pioneer and Viterra — had agreed to take part in the program. “I am confident that the new program will fulfill the objectives that growers have had from the outset,” said Denise Maurice, vice-president of crop production at the Canola Council of Canada.

The Canadian Wheat Board has expanded its ownership stake in Canada’s grain transportation system. The grain marketing agency, which already owns 3,400 rail cars, last week invested $65 million to buy two vessels to haul grain through the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway system. Critics of the purchase said the board’s mandate does not allow it to own assets, but CWB chair Allen Oberg said that is not so. “We’re confident we’re not in conflict with the CWB Act,” Oberg told a news conference announcing the purchase. Under the deal announced Feb. 8, the board will spend $65 million to buy two new lakers, part of a group of eight ordered by shipping companies Algoma Central Corp. and Upper Lakes Group Inc. A number of farm groups, along with CWB minister Gerry Ritz, criticized the purchase. “The wheat board should focus on getting higher returns for farmers, not buying a bunch of ships,” Ritz said in a Feb. 9 e-mail. Ritz said the decision puts $65 million of farmers’ money at risk and will hurt pool returns. “Farmers have not been consulted on this and their money should not be spent recklessly.” Oberg rejected Ritz’s description, saying the purchase will boost producers’ grain revenues in the future.






Canola trials set for spring The new system will replace the Prairie Canola Variety Trials (PCVT), which were suspended in 2010 after canola companies objected to the way the trials were conducted. Brett Halstead, a spokesperson for the Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission, said the new trial system will give farmers a better sense of how canola varieties perform at the farm level. It will use variety specific weed control programs and standard growing practices, he added. “It’s a systems based approach, so if we’re testing a Roundup canola, we’re going to spray it with Roundup, and if it’s an Invigor canola, we’ll spray it with Invigor,” said Halstead. “It will give us a better sense of how the different varieties perform under actual growing conditions.” The previous PCVT system treated all varieties with the same weed management program, regardless of the herbicide tolerance package they employed. Halstead also said the new trials will use grower practices commonly used by farmers. For example, if the majority of canola acres in a given region are direct seeded into standing stubble, then the test sites in that area would also use a direct seeding system. Unlike the old PCVT system, which included only small plot trials, the new system will use small plot trials and field-scale trials. Small plot trials will examine the performance of newly introduced varieties as well as the most popular commercial canola varieties grown in Western Canada. Protocols used in the small plot trials will be rejigged to address canola company concerns over plot design, data delivery and harvest management. The work conducted on small plot

trials will be contracted to an impartial third party and plots will be audited to ensure information derived from the trials is accurate and unbiased. Seed companies will manage the field-scale trials, but they will be expected to follow a set of protocols. An audit process will also be developed to ensure that reliable data is produced. Jody Klassen, chair of the Alberta Canola Producers Commission, said the field scale trials will provide farmers with additional data that was not available under the previous system. The protocols will ensure the data is unbiased, he added. “It’s not about imposing a protocol on them (the seed companies),” said Klassen. “It’s about ensuring their protocols are based on sound science so that the data accurately reflects performance.” Data from small plot and field scale trials will be presented separately. Reporting will include site specific data on weather, soil type, previous crop history, fertility, seeding date and rate and harvest date. Information from the trials will be published in a printed format and on websites of the provincial canola grower associations and the Canola Council of Canada (CCC). The data will continue to be reported in the provincial seed guides. A governance body will also be established to oversee the program and provide a mechanism for evaluating the new system and making improvements to protocols. It will be charged with resolving details around data analysis and reporting. Board membership will include growers, provincial specialists, the seed trade and the CCC.

XL Foods has received a $1.6 million grant to upgrade its ground beef production line at its Brooks, Alta., plant. The grant, provided through the federal government’s Growing Forward program, will be paid out over two years. The money will be administered through the Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency (ALMA), said a government news release. The money allows the plant to install new technology to double its daily capacity to produce ground beef. “XL appreciates the contribution and support ALMA has provided through the Growing Forward pro-


gram for our plant competitiveness initiatives,” said XL Foods executive Brian Nilsson in a news release. “This grant will assist us in maintaining our competitiveness as we adapt to the global marketplace.” XL Foods Inc. is a Canadian-owned and operated beef processor and part of the Nilsson Bros. Group of companies, which are involved in all facets of beef and cattle production, marketing and processing. The Brooks plant processes more than 4,500 head of cattle per day and employs 2,300 people. Earlier this year Cargill Meat Solutions received $3 million from the same program to modernize and gain a better foothold in the Asian beef markets. access=subscriber section=news,livestock,none

Western bean cutworm may pose threat to field peas, warn researchers BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Peas could be in danger if the western bean cutworm makes the trip to Western Canada. A University of Guelph researcher who has fought the bug since it invaded Ontario in 2008 issued the warning during the recent Manitoba Special Crops Symposium. “This thing scares me more than anything else I’ve worked with,” Chris Gillard told the conference. The insect attacks crops between late July and September, eating seeds and pods of beans, peas and corn. The western bean cutworm was first noticed in southeastern Nebraska 60 years ago. It stayed close to homefordecades but began moving in 1999. It first crossed the western U.S. corn belt, then the eastern corn belt, then advanced up around the Great Lakes to Michigan in 2006 and into Ontario in 2008. The insect The western bean p unches cutworm holes into seeds and pods rather than doing the type of damage usually associate with cutworms, such as shearing early season stalks. “This is a late season cutworm … that feeds on the marketable part of the crop,” said Gillard. “They chew big holes in the seed. It’s fairly ugly damage.” He said pea crops haven’t been badly damaged in Ontario because they are harvested in mid-July for the fresh market before the bug is fully active as a pest. However, it could be a different story in Western Canada, where hundreds of thousands of acres of peas are allowed to stay in the field until late summer and early fall. “They love peas,” he said. The only way to find the bug is to look for dead moths in milk jug traps, Gillard said. If many moths appear in traps, farmers can hit the crop with an insecticidal treatment a week or two later and control the pest. “A single, well-timed application seems to be all you need,” said Gillard. He urged growers and agrologists to start looking for signs of the bug because it could be bad if it arrives in the West. “They are moving and you should at least know when they’re coming in.” The cutworm’s present range of the U.S. corn belt and the Great Lakes region is much warmer in the winter than it is in Western Canada. Gillard said it is unknown if the bug can survive prairie winters. “The big question is, do they overwinter?” said Gillard. “What we don’t know is more than we do know.” access=subscriber section=news,crops,none

Wheat board’s laker buy sparks criticism CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE

As for the charge by a number of groups that the board acted without consulting farmers, Oberg said the decision was made by the farmerelected board of directors, which is a form of consultation. “Farmers elect the board of directors to make decisions like this on their behalf.” The Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association, a wheat board critic, said it strongly opposes the CWB’s decision to “commandeer” money owed to farmers to enter the ship business. President Kevin Bender said the money spent on the purchase should remain in the hands of producers to invest as they see fit, whether it be their own farms, families, local business initiatives or other stocks or funds. “Farmers on the verge of retirement, needing the money or wanting to invest elsewhere, should not be compelled to buy ships,” he said. The federal government should allow farmers to opt out of any capital purchase made by the board, he added.

Barry Prentice of the University of Manitoba’s Transport Institute said the key to the investment’s success could be whether the vessels are able to secure return traffic back up the lakes, carrying products such as iron ore and pellets. He said the board’s move might be designed in part to ensure competition with the railways for grain movement, which may provide benefits to farmers. “At worst, the ships can be sold and most of the capital recovered.” He said such ships are mobile assets with worldwide demand. The two lakers, which will have a lifespan of at least 25 years, will be owned 100 percent by the CWB. The vessels, being built in China, are each capable of carrying 30,000 tonnes of grain, and will be ready for service in 2013. The ships have greater capacity than the 25,000 tonnes of existing lakers, are faster, consume less fuel and are more environmentally friendly. Ward Weisensel, chief operating officer for the board, said Seaway Marine Transport will handle day-

to-day operating costs and management of the two new vessels. SMT, a vessel marketing and management company, operates the largest fleet of Canadian registered dry bulk carriers in the Great LakesSeaway system and eastern Canadian waters. It is a partner of Algoma Central Corp. and Upper Lakes Shipping Inc. Weisensel said the board pays $70 to $75 million a year to ship grain through the Lakes-Seaway system. “As a major user, we decided if we’re going to continue to pay costs of shipping grain, it makes sense to take an ownership position if a viable business plan could be developed,” Weisensel said. The board expects to ship more through the eastern system in the future, he added. Oberg said the new vessels will provide farmers with pool revenue of $10 million a year, net of operating costs. The $65 million construction cost will be spread over four crop years, which works out to about $1 per tonne. Here’s what other farm groups had

to say about the purchase: Grain Growers of Canada president Stephen Vandervalk said it’s clearly beyond the board’s mandate, which is to return all revenue from grain sales to farmers.He echoed Bender’s comment that individual farmers might have other ways they would like to invest their share of the $65 million and criticized the lack of consultation. National Farmers Union president Terry Boehm said $65 million is not that much in the context of the total value of CWB grain marketing and transportation. Given the lifespan of lakers, the investment will continue to pay dividends for years, he added. “If this facilitates faster, more efficient transport of grain, that’s great.” The Western Barley Growers Association criticized the lack of a public consultation process, saying investing in ships is outside the board’s mandate. President Brian Otto said individual farmers should be given the opportunity to opt out of the deal. He also said the board could have leased vessels rather than buy them.


Wheat board’s business connections questioned Mission Terminal president cries foul | Measner denies his grain handling company was involved in laker deal BY ADRIAN EWINS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A grain industry observer has suggested a series of what he calls questionable connections between some of the players in the Canadian Wheat Board’s purchase of two lakers. In a Feb. 11 commentary, John De Pape of Winnipeg focused on the wheat board, the shipping companies Upper Lakes Shipping Group and Seaway Marine Transport, and Adrian Measner, former chief executive officer of the wheat board. De Pape alleged an improperly close business relationship between the

wheat board, Measner and Upper Lakes Shipping, which is part of the laker deal. He also described as unseemly high grain volumes shipped by the wheat board through Mission. Measner is president of Mission Terminal, one of four grain companies operated by a company called Soumat through Upper Lakes Grains Group. Measner is also president of Soumat. It is owned by Upper Lakes Group, a Toronto-based private company. Upper Lakes Group also owns Upper Lakes Shipping, which in partnership with Algoma Central Ship-

ping operates Seaway Marine Transport, the firm hired by the wheat board to manage its lakers. “I have to ask: is partnering with Upper Lakes on these vessels just a coincidence or it is part of a larger strategic plan for the CWB, (which) they haven’t shared with farmers?” said De Pape. CWB spokesperson Maureen Fitzhenry said the laker deal had nothing to do with Measner’s grain handling company. “It has nothing to do with any of the issues De Pape is raising,” she said. “Adrian Measner was not involved in this.”

Fitzhenry said the board talked to a number of potential partners, and Seaway Marine Transport was most interested in proceeding. Measner agreed with Fitzhenry. “The laker purchase has nothing to do with what I’m responsible for in this job,” Measner said. “I’m not involved and was never approached.” Fitzhenry said De Pape doesn’t appear to know much about the structure of the Great Lakes shipping industry, other than finding a few randomly related names of companies and individual and “jumping to some pretty serious, unfounded and irresponsible implications.” access=subscriber section=news,none,none






Biodiesel fails to deliver expected opportunities Projects on hold | Many canola biodiesel projects failed to receive support STORIES BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Canada’s newly minted biodiesel mandate and associated policies have failed to deliver on the government’s promise of a new processing opportunity for canola, say grower and biofuel groups. Last week, Ottawa set a July 1, 2011, start date for a two percent national mandate that will require an estimated 600 million litres of biodiesel to be consumed by Dec. 31, 2012. The biodiesel sector praised the government for moving on the mandate, but warned that it won’t be met by Canadian-made canola biodiesel, which was one of the original policy objectives. Canada has 206 million litres of annual biodiesel capacity, 49 million litres of which are canola based. More capacity is in the works with a number of plants either planned or under construction. The biggest proposal is a Canadian BioEnergy Corp. project to build a 265 million litre canola biodiesel plant in Lloydminster, Alta., in conjunction with Archer Daniels Midland’s existing crushing plant. But the project is on hold because the company failed to secure a production credit through the ecoEnergy for Biofuels program. “There were a number of well developed (canola biodiesel) projects across Western Canada that did not receive contribution agreements,” said Canadian BioEnergy president Ian Thomson. He said that’s a shame because the ecoEnergy program was sold to Canadian taxpayers as a vehicle for creating new opportunities for farmers. “I think there is general agreement within the government and certainly within the agricultural community that the ecoEnergy plan did not fulfill that,” he said. A s p o k e s p e r s o n f o r Na t u r a l Resources Canada said the program was not designed to focus on any particular feedstock. Companies that demonstrated advanced readiness and ranked the highest on the merit criteria, including financing, environmental performance and technology, received contribution agreements. Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz said the mandate will pay dividends to farmers. “We hope that these new regulations will encourage private investment in the processing industry and in the meantime canola growers will benefit from an expanded market for biodiesel,” he said. The Canola Council of Canada hopes the mandate will create a one million tonne market, but where it is processed remains to be seen. Canadian oil companies have expressed their preference for canola biodiesel because of its superior cold weather properties. However, the council said that unless the government acts quickly,

the fuel will be supplied by the Archer Daniels Midland canola biodiesel plant in Velva, North Dakota, and the Imperium Renewables plant in Seattle, Washington. “We’re going to send canola to the U.S. They’re going to make it into biodiesel and then they’re going to send it back to us,” said council president JoAnne Buth. “It’s already happening in B.C. where they’ve got a mandate.” The proposed Canadian BioEnergy Corp./ADM plant in Lloydminister would consume 600,000 tonnes of canola annually. “A singular project could have significant impact on domestic demand for growers,” said Thomson. Both companies are still eager to build the plant. However, they say they can’t proceed unless Ottawa quickly addresses the shortcomings of a production incentive program that ran out of money and left well developed projects standing on the sidelines. Buth said some companies reconsidered their plans because of the shrinking margin between biodiesel prices and feedstock costs, a failure to secure the required permits or problems with financing. However, other viable canola biodiesel projects are ready to go and the council has asked the federal government to create another incentive program for them. “It doesn’t need to be a complicated program. Use the same criteria EcoEnergy used,” she said. It typically takes 18 months to build a biodiesel plant, so time is of the essence if Canadian canola biodiesel plants are to contribute to the mandate’s first compliance period. “We need it right away,” said Buth. Thomson agreed that sooner is better because it will be tough to compete if they are slow getting out of the gate. “If imports become well established into Canada, it becomes harder for a start-up Canadian production plant to elbow its way into established supply contracts,” he said. The Natural Resources Canada spokesperson said the government has reviewed its clean energy programs. Decisions regarding the next phase of clean energy initiatives will be made before the end of March. In the meantime, the council and the federal government are taking steps to ensure U.S. biodiesel plants can use Canadian canola.

Federal biodiesel mandate welcomed Industry predicts canola demand to expand by one million tonnes Ottawa has set a date for implementation of a two percent national biodiesel mandate, an announcement that was met by farm group cheers and petroleum and trucking industry jeers. The federal government is proposing the mandate come into force on July 1, 2011. The regulatory amendment will be published in the Canada Gazette, Part 1 in the coming weeks for a 60-day public comment period. “We are meeting the commitments we have made to farmers, rural communities and industry to regulate the use of renewable fuels,” said federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz. The Canola Council of Canada had been critical of how long it took for government to get the ball rolling on a national mandate. “We are absolutely thrilled with this announcement,” said council president JoAnne Buth. “In addition to contributing positively to environmental sustainability, the renewable fuel standard will provide an important new market for a growing Canadian canola sector.” The Canadian Renewable Fuel Association called it a “milestone day” for the biofuel industry, one that will lead to higher incomes for farmers and less reliance on safety nets. “It will help moderate price by adding to our fuel supply, create new jobs and benefit farmers and drivers alike,” said CRFA president Gordon Quaiattini.


The association said biodiesel is 10 times less toxic than table salt, as biodegradable as sugar and generates between 85 to 99 percent fewer greenhouse gases than regular diesel. The Canadian Canola Growers Association said the mandate will create a market for one million tonnes of canola and brings Canada into line with other regions like Europe, the United States and Argentina. “A strong domestic biodiesel industry backed by this national renewable fuel standard will create significant economic and environmental benefits that can be measured in new jobs, stable incomes for farm families, growth for rural communities and cleaner fuel for all Canadians,” said association president Ed Schafer. But there were other groups that said the government was being reckless by forcing consumers to use the alternative fuel. The Canadian Trucking Alliance pointed to a 2009 study done by EcoResources Consultants for Environment Canada which showed the

net societal cost of the mandate would amount to $4.5 billion between 2011 and 2035 compared to environmental benefits of $860 million over that same period. “It’s no wonder other countries are re-thinking their biodiesel policies,” said CTA chief executive officer David Bradley. The association said consumer concerns have taken a backset to those of big agribusiness. “This new fuel standard could pose significant operating challenges for both light and heavy-duty users of diesel engines in winter conditions along with creating possible warranty issues,” said Bradley. The Canadian Petroleum Products Institute urged the government to reconsider a July 1 start date that overlooks important feasibility issues. The group said the fuel storage, distribution and transportation infrastructure required to compensate for biodiesel’s poor low temperature properties won’t be in place in regions of the country where there are no existing provincial biodiesel mandates until well after the start date. “A July 1, 2011, start date does not provide fuel suppliers, the only obligated party under these regulations, the necessary lead time to ensure a seamless, trouble-free national transition to renewable diesel blends,” said institute president Peter Boag.





Don’t expect AgriStability changes: ag minister Pressure for change low | Gerry Ritz says no rule changes are planned before new policy framework in 2013 BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

TORONTO — Farmers should not expect major changes to national farm support programs when the next policy framework takes effect in two years, says agriculture minister Gerry Ritz. Industry consultations continue, but the pressure for significant change is diminishing, Ritz told a Feb. 11 news conference following a federal-provincial agriculture ministers’ meeting. “With basically the first time that I can remember in my history where all sectors of agriculture are pumping away on all eight cylinders, it’s not the same demand for change that there was a year ago when everyone was facing hardships.” He said there is general agreement among federal and provincial agri-

culture ministers that the existing programs are working for farmers, despite farm sector complaints. “At the end of the day, we agree that the existing programs are serving the sector,” he said. “We’ve had some $8.5 billion go out over the last couple of years so we know there’s a lot of money floating around out there. Is it always hitting the target? We hope that more and more of it does.” He said the goal is to reduce farmer dependence on programs and increase their dependence on market revenues. Saskatchewan agriculture minister Bob Bjornerud said in an interview that he sees more optimism in the industry, which translates into less pressure to change program rules. However, he said that does not mean farmers are happy with existing programs.

“It is quiet out there right now but I think the hope of producers as we move toward 2013 is that we improve the programs and we talked about that today,” he said after the meeting. “One of the messages we keep getting out there is that timeliness is one of the key issues.” He said that despite better prices for many commodities, farmers are telling agriculture ministers that payments under AgriStability and other programs under Growing Forward are too slow in responding when help is needed. “It was the message I heard from a number of ministers today that producers are saying if these programs are going to work, they have to be timely,” said Bjornerud. “If payments don’t happen for a year or a year and a half down the road, they could be out of business.” In their final communiqué, the

One of the messages we keep getting out there is that timeliness is one of the key issues. BOB BJORNERUD SASKATCHEWAN AGRICULTURE MINISTER

ministers said they will continue consultations with industry to develop a new policy framework to be ready April 1, 2013. Ministers next meet in New Brunswick in July. Meanwhile, Ritz threw cold water on any farm lobby expectation that changes will be made in existing programs before the new framework takes effect in 2013. Some farm groups have been lobbying for mid-term changes in negative margin coverage and the defini-

tion of “viable” under the AgriStability program rule that requires profitability in two of the three reference years to pass the viability test. The Canadian Federation of Agriculture also wants Ottawa to change the rules of the five-year $500 million AgriFlexibility program to allow money for provincially designed farm support programs. Ritz suggested mid-program changes are not in the cards. “We are constantly reviewing the programs,” he said. “We have no intention of completely changing them or fundamentally changing them in mid-flow, as we are.” He said farmers often send mixed signals about how well the programs work for them. “I have producers coming up and saying AgriStability doesn’t work, reference margins don’t work, but please lift the cap.” access=subscriber section=news,none,none

Ritz admits 2011 traceability implementation deadline iffy BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

TORONTO — Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz insists he is not admitting defeat.

However, it is clear the federal-provincial deadline for establishing a national livestock traceability system in 2011 won’t be met. After a one-day meeting last week, federal and provincial agriculture

ministers renewed their commitment to a traceability system and said much progress has been made and close to $40 million committed to the project. However, it remains a work in progress, and Ritz told a news conference that political events this year could slow down implementation. “I’m not throwing the towel in yet. I never do,” he said. “We’ve got all kinds of time yet. I guess when you look at the number of provincial elections that are going to happen next fall, you look at the potential of a federal election, which is not necessary, certainly could throw a wrench into it. Things slow down over those writ periods and timelines.” The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association has always been critical of the short traceability implementation period set by the ministers. And after the Feb. 11 meeting, Saskatchewan agriculture minister Bob Bjornerud, skeptical from the beginaccess=subscriber section=news,none,none

ning and the only minister to favour voluntary compliance, said talk of deadlines has slipped from the discussion. He said progress has been made, with the hog sector the most advanced. “It is coming down the road.” Bjornerud acknowledged that the window is closing on any chance that his idea of a voluntary system will be adapted. “But I don’t think there is a definitive day when it has to happen. We’re trying to help our producers to get to that point without forcing them. We’re still talking about 2011, but we’re already here. I’m thinking of 2012, 2013. I think we’ll be up and running with a lot of it by then.” Ritz said a big part of the challenge has been convincing farmers that it is in their best interests. “We’re still buoyed by the fact that it is doable,” he said. “You know, where the rubber meets the road is selling this to farmers to make sure that they

realize they are not just going to get the bill for this.” He said it will help secure access to foreign markets and allow Canada to limit trade disruptions if a domestic disease outbreak occurred by quickly identifying the source. Ritz said Ottawa has invested close to $40 million to encourage development of a system. It includes $7 million for the Canadian Pork Council’s PigTrace Canada, including $3.7 million announced last week. On Feb. 14, he also announced $252,000 to help the Saskatchewan Herb and Spice Association develop traceability programs. He said the CCA is suggesting that tagging in feedlots for data collection could get the sector “90 percent there by the end of this year.” However, a database to store all the information and make it available when needed still has not been developed. “We’re working on that already.”

Dow AgroSciences Canada says it can take all the Nexera canola farmers can produce due to overwhelming demand for the omega 9 oil it produces. “We’ll contract as much as we can get acres for, frankly,” said David Dzisiak, Dow’s North American commercial leader for grains and oils. Over the past few months Dow has landed big new food company accounts hungry for the company’s high oleic canola oil. “PepsiCo in North America is going to adopt 0mega 9 canola oil as their primary oil within their snacks business, which is a huge win for the canola industry,” said Dzisiak. PepsiCo owns Frito Lay, a snack food maker that generates $13 billion US in annual sales revenue. The company is a “massive consumer” of vegetable oil. Dzisiak wouldn’t divulge names of the other new clients but said one is a large U.S. restaurant chain. Dow has traditionally focused on servicing chains like A&W, KFC, Taco Bell, Red Lobster and Olive Garden, which each typically consume between nine to 18 million kilograms of vegetable oil annually. In the last couple of years Dow has expanded the target market to include consumer packaged good companies, which consume four to five times the volume of oil used by a large restaurant chain. Canola has become the second most widely used oil in the U.S. food industry. Dzisiak said 1.2 billion kilograms of the oil were used last year, more than double the consumption five years ago. Soy oil is the reigning champion at 6.4 billion kilograms but it has steadi-

ly lost ground to canola and palm oil due to trans fat bans. Nexera received another marketing boost on Jan. 31 when the United States Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services released the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. For the first time, the guidelines recommend that the consumption of saturated fats be limited by replacing them with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which is exactly what Nexera offers. “The demand signals are very, very, very strong,” said Dzisiak. To entice growers to plant more Nexera in 2011, the company is releasing its first hybrid seed in April. There are two new Roundup Ready and two new Clearfield varieties. Nexera marketing specialist Mark Woloshyn said 1014 RR, 1012 RR, 2014 CL and 2012 CL will provide growers with strong early season vigor, improved lodging resistance for easier swathing and excellent harvestability. “The big question is yield and our expectation is that the Nexera hybrids will yield five to 10 percent higher than our varieties that we have on the market now,” he said. Farmers will get a $35 per tonne premium to grow the crop. “It’s the most profitable canola a farmer can grow,” said Dzisiak. Dow is putting money where its mouth is by offering producers a Healthier Profit Guarantee that 80 acres of Nexera’s Roundup Ready or Clearfield varieties will earn more than commodity Roundup Ready and Clearfield varieties grown on the same parcel of land with the same rotation and agronomic practices. access=subscriber section=markets,none,none




Demand for Nexera canola is growing because Dow has new supply contracts with huge snack manufacturers in addition to restaurant chains that use the omega 9 oil in their fryers. | FILE PHOTO One lurking danger that could disrupt Nexera’s gathering momentum is the new lines of high oleic soybeans developed in response to high oleic canola.

“It’s definitely a competitive threat to us,” said Dzisiak. But he doesn’t expect to see significant volumes of high oleic soybeans produced in the U.S. until 2013.


India’s forecast for lower pulse imports bad news for Canada BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A senior Indian government official says the country will halve its pulse imports due to prospects of a bumper crop. India’s newest 2010-11 forecast puts the pulse crop at 16.5 million tonnes, up from 14.6 million tonnes in each of the previous two years. The ministry of agriculture noted that the results will be achieved despite drought in some regions and the effects of cyclones, unseasonably heavy rains and a severe cold wave and frost conditions in other parts of the country. Commerce secretary Rahul Khullar

was quoted in The Economic Times saying that the record harvest will cut pulse imports in half from the 3.4 million tonnes in 2009-10. Chuck Penner, president of LeftField Commodity Research, said there may be politics in that statement designed to check food price inflation, but he believe imports will likely drop. The recent frost may not have caused as much damage as first anticipated. Prices for peas and lentils at inland locations in India have fallen sharply after frost fears caused a rally. Importer inquiries to Canadian exporters have fallen as a result. Penner said India’s winter or rabi harvest is just underway and by no

means in the bin, but for now he’s sticking with his forecast for 16.5 to 17 million tonnes of pulse production, which doesn’t bode well for Canadian farmers. “That does raise some warning signals in terms of exports for the second half of the year,” he said. It doesn’t help that Statistics Canada found an extra 300,000 to 600,000 tonnes of peas in its latest stocks report. “We actually have more to push out the door in the second half than we thought we did.” Penner said it’s time for growers to consider marketing more of their yellow pea and red lentil crops. “I’ve been saying all along, ‘watch

the Indian crop and if you see that it’s looking decent get a lot more aggressive on sales. Don’t leave so much until the end of the year,’ ” he said. Demand likely won’t soften until Indian product starts hitting warehouses in the last half of March. Growers should closely monitor pulse bids in India because there is typically a one or two week lag between those prices and Canadian bids. Penner said the jury is still out on how much damage has been caused to India’s pigeon pea crop, which tends to be more susceptible to frost than other pulses. If significant, that could boost green lentil prices because the crop is a good substitute for pigeon peas. access=subscriber section=markets,none,none

ight snow gave mild relief to some drought areas in China’s winter wheat region, but farmers and authorities are still worried. It was the first precipitation since September, but many areas received the equivalent of only a few millimetres of moisture rather than the 50 mm they need. Authorities used artillery and rockets to seed clouds with silver iodide to enhance precipitation on the weekend. China’s central government last week allocated an extra $1 billion to increase irrigation, including the drilling of 1,350 new wells. There is a lot of coverage about the drought on China television, which can be seen at Most stories show people spreading hoses on fields in preparation for flood irrigation. A similar winter drought in 2008-09 was overcome thanks to emergency irrigation and the arrival of spring rain. Farmers harvested a bumper wheat crop of 115 million tonnes. It could happen again this year, but China’s weather department said a major break in the drought is not yet in sight. China has huge government-held wheat stocks to draw on, but if the crop fails, Beijing would be hard pressed not to turn to the world market for at least some quality wheat. Meanwhile, temperatures jumped to about 20 C in many parts of the U.S. hard red winter wheat belt on the weekend, melting the snow that fell two weeks ago. The moisture helped a little, but more is needed and, with no protective snow blanket, the already weakened crop is vulnerable if freezing weather returns. The weather uncertainty is pushing wheat prices higher, but the opposite is happening in oilseeds. Brazil is harvesting what could be a record soybean crop and rain has ended the drought in Argentina. There will be fewer soybeans from South America than last year, but the situation is less dire than a month ago. New crop is entering the supply chain and pressuring soybean and canola prices lower. It is a situation that often happens at this time of year. However, strong demand and the need for a big 2011 crop will keep oilseeds well supported with the chance for another rally as seeding in the United States and Canada approaches. access=subscriber section=markets,none,none





Dwindling corn stocks put market on edge Policy change a danger | Strong demand could sustain rally longer than during 1970s boom BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Analysts are finding it hard to be bearish about crop markets, even if today’s bullishness is ringing alarms. “It’s easy to get caught up (by headlines),” noted Chuck Penner, market analyst with LeftField Commodity Research, at the Manitoba Special Crops Symposium. Penner noted that the price optimism worries him, because that often precedes a market reversal, but there are no obvious signals yet that market fundamentals are changing. “Can anything stop corn use,” wondered Penner, quoting a recent headline. “The USDA report this morning said, ‘not yet, anyway.’ ” The U.S. Department of Agriculture report Feb. 9 predicted that year end corn stocks, already at alarmingly low levels, would fall further based on increased ethanol production.

Economist Scott Irwin of the University of Illinois said in an interview that the sharp market reaction to the USDA report revealed the incredible tightness of corn stocks. “We are in the part of the pricing curve that, in ‘economist-speak,’ is highly non-linear,” said Irwin. “Small changes in (already low) stocks can have very large price impacts.” Irwin said today’s bull market rally, following so soon after the 2007-08 rally, seems similar to the early-mid 1970s series of rallies. But a crucial element, he thinks, will be different: the rally’s longevity. “I think the true spike or boom phase will probably last longer in this episode because of the biofuels mandates and high fuel prices working together,” said Irwin. “As long as our current biofuels policies remain in place and crude oil stays above $70 or $80 per barrel, then I expect the current boom to last

somewhat longer than the mid1970s boom.” That boom lasted from mid-1972 until late-1975, or less than four years. Irwin noted the present rally, which started in 2007, has lasted about the same amount of time. He thinks U.S. government policies mandating ethanol use are a regulatory constraint to demand rationing that didn’t exist before. Many analysts believe corn prices have to rise compared to soybeans to encourage more production. But Penner said new crop cash prices slightly favour soybean production. If that doesn’t change by spring, U.S. corn production won’t rise. “I don’t necessarily see a whole bunch of acres getting swung into corn,” said Penner. “There’s virtually no difference (in per-acre net returns to farmers).” Irwin said the wheat rally is based on production problems, but corn, upon which most crop prices are

based, has suffered no major growing problem in the world for years. The 2010 U.S. corn crop simply failed to maintain trend line yield increases. “2010 was not a bad weather year. What happens if you get a bad weather year?” said Irwin. Still, both Irwin and Penner see several factors that could break the rally. Penner said some of the wheat rally is due to “hoarding” by overseas governments, but “what happens when all their warehouses are full?” And Irwin noted that a big 2011 U.S. corn crop could relax the tight stocks situation. Easing of the ethanol mandate would also change the situation, since ethanol consumes about 40 percent of the U.S. crop, he said. But that is unlikely, given the allimportant Iowa presidential nominating caucuses less than two years away.

U.S. CORN STOCKS FALL With the latest reduction in the forecasted U.S. corn year end stocks, the supply-to-use ratio for the grain has dropped to five percent, the lowest level since 1995-96. Corn stocks-to-use ratio (%) 2001/02 2002/03 2003/04 2004/05 2005/06 2006/07 2007/08 2008/09 2009/10 20010/11

Riff between food industry, biofuel sector resumes as corn prices rise BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A new United States crop supply and demand report has strengthened corn prices and refueled the food versus fuel debate. “It’s certainly heating up again in the United States and around the world,” said Dave Ray, vice-president of public affairs with the American Meat Institute, one of the groups blaming the ethanol industry for rising food costs. Issued Feb. 9, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s report increased corn used by the ethanol sector to the

point where it will consume 40 percent of the 2010-11 crop. Ray said ethanol s increasing influence on corn and competing grain and oilseed prices is pitting livestock producers and the food industry against the growing biofuel sector. The U.S. Renewable Fuels Association argues that the U.S. ethanol industry is not the root cause of global food price inflation. It uses just three percent of the world’s grain supply and consumes only coarse grains, not food grains like rice and wheat. It also points out that one-third of every bushel of corn used to make

ethanol is returned to the feed market in the form of distillers grain. It says corn acres and yield are growing and there is plenty of supply in a normal production year to meet all U.S. export and domestic needs. Ray scoffsed at that notion, noting that corn prices have surpassed $6 US per bushel for the second time since the government implemented its renewable fuel standard in 2007. “If the ethanol industry has a magic wand to make corn production go up, they better start waving it because the reason corn prices are reaching

historic highs is because demand is by far outstripping supply,” he said. Rick Kment, ethanol analyst with Telvent/DTN, said the current rally differs from 2008. It was driven mostly by fund buyers and soaring oil prices. This one is based on fundamentals. USDA says the corn stocks-to-use ratio of five percent is the lowest since the end of 1995-96 and only a fraction above the lowest point reached during the Great Depression. “Corn prices rose sharply in the spring and summer of 1996 to ration usage ahead of the harvest,” the USDA report said.

Kment said corn prices from here on will dictate whether the ethanol industry consumes as much corn as the USDA is predicting. The Commodity Research Bureau reports that the ethanol corn crush margin has fallen to a one cent loss per gallon, down from a 20 cent profit in July due to a 90 percent rally in corn prices compared to a 55 percent surge in ethanol prices. “If corn prices continue to move higher we could lose significant ethanol production,” said Kment. But the USDA said ethanol plants forward bought at lower prices, circumventing the declining margins. access=subscriber section=markets,crops,none

CANFAX REPORT FED CATTLE PRICE RISES The weighted average fed steer price rose for the sixth straight week to $106.86 per hundredweight, up $1.11, and heifers rose 67 cents to $106.36. The cash to futures basis is strong in Canada, which is opposite from the United States, where feedlots face challenges as they market in a weak basis environment. Alberta sales volume was 14,601, up eight percent. Strong prices have feedlots aggressively pulling cattle forward to market, which will keep carcass weights in check. Weekly fed cattle exports to the U.S. to Jan. 29 were 9,913 head, down 12 percent from the previous week and the same week last year. So far this year, exports are down two percent.

Tight supply is likely to remain for a while based on the drawn out fall run and late placement of calves last fall. That is giving feedlots leverage against the downward push from seasonally weaker beef prices.

FEEDER PRICES RISE Buyers looking for grassers and bunk replacement cattle laid a strong price foundation. The average steer price rose $2.79 per cwt. and heifers rose $2.60. Steers 300‐600 pounds advanced $2.19‐$5.79. Heifers 300‐400 lb. rose only 28 cents. Heifers 400‐600 lb. climbed $4.08‐$4.40, while 700‐800 lb. rose $2.46. Short keep 900 lb. and heavier steers and heifers rose $1‐$2 to average $116.06 and $105.64 respectively. Alberta auction volume totalled

34,412, up 23 percent from the previous week. So far this year, auction volume is down 33 from last year. Weekly feeder exports to Jan. 29 were 1,149. So far this year, exports are down two percent. Demand remains strong with buyers digging deeper to acquire cattle, but steers and heifers 800 lb. and heavier could fall.

COW PRICE RISES D1, D2 cows were $2.87 per cwt. higher to average $66.79. D3 cows edged higher to average $56.33. Rail cows were $132‐$134 per cwt. Butcher bulls slipped four cents lower to average $73.69 after strong gains the previous week. Nonfed slaughter exports to Jan. 29 totalled 4,677 head.

Exports are down 34 percent so far this year.

U.S. BEEF RETREATS U.S. Choice and Select beef cutouts were pressured lower because of difficulty passing the higher prices up the supply chain at a time of seasonally soft demand. Choice cutouts closed at $169 US per cwt., down $3.09, and Select was 168.58, down $2.22. Weekly Canadian slaughter to Feb. 5 was 53,825 head. Year to date slaughter is down six percent. Weekly Canadian cutouts to Feb. 4 saw AAA at $166.57 per cwt. Cdn, up 85 cents, and AA fell 68 cents to $164.42. The Montreal wholesale price for delivery this week was anticipated to be steady at $192‐$195 per cwt. access=subscriber section=livestock,none,none

CATTLE ON FEED DOWN The number of cattle in Alberta and Saskatchewan feedlots Feb. 1 was 916,805, down three percent from last year. Placements in January were 90,005 head, down 28 percent, reflecting the snow and cold early in the month that limited auction activity. Marketings in January were 143,845 head, an increase of two percent reflecting aggressive selling due to strong prices.

The most value and performance.

Bitter cold in the U.S. Midwest and expectations of strong pork exports to South Korea pushed cash hog prices higher. Korea is increasing imports to replace reduced domestic production. It has culled a large part of its herd to fight foot-and-mouth disease. Packers’ margins are tight at these prices and they will likely try to pressure hogs lower. Iowa-southern Minnesota cash hogs delivered to plants rose to $65 US per cwt. Feb. 11, up from $60-$61 Feb. 4. The U.S. pork carcass cut-out value was $88.31 Feb. 11, down from $89.17 Feb. 4. The U.S. federal slaughter estimate was 2.156 million head, up from 2.051 million the previous week.

WTO deal plays small part of strategy to help farmers


here’s no doubt that the latest round of World Trade Organization negotiations have been on life support for some time. WTO director Pascal Lamy is attempting to push the talks forward, but he is finding little support among member countries. And Canada’s federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz has admitted he sees little chance of success. There are major hurdles still to overcome. Developing countries insist they deserve special protections to aid their economies. Meanwhile, developed countries make the point that the largest developing countries, India, China and Brazil, have made such progress lately that special protections are unwarranted. As well, with Republicans in control of the U.S. Congress, president Barack Obama is not likely to gain fast track authority. This would have enabled his administration to negotiate a deal, with Congress having the right to reject or accept the deal as whole without amendment. Lacking fast track authority, negotiations with the U.S. lack credibility, given that Congress can attempt to change any aspect of the points being negotiated. So although WTO member countries are being pressed to try once again to find compromises and come to an agreement, a deal appears further off now than it has anytime since the Doha Round agenda was signed in 2001. Should farmers worry? Western Canadian farmers are mainly exporters of the goods they grow. Any arrangement that gives them better access for foreign markets is bound to provide them more opportunities. A key aspect of the Doha Round would target base subsides levels on agricultural goods. Since Canada’s subsidies are already below those that exist in the EU and U.S., further limits on allowable subsides would likely pay dividends for Canadian farmers. As well, a strong WTO deal may serve to discourage countries from instituting

protectionist measures during tough economic times. On the other side of the equation, the WTO did threaten Canada’s supply management industries and the Canadian Wheat Board monopoly, even though our federal government vowed that those issues are not negotiable. No matter what one thinks of the CWB’s monopoly or supply management, they are issues for Canadian farmers to decide, not foreign powers. If there is no WTO deal, this principle remains intact. But if there is to be no WTO, the federal government must ensure the proper measures are in place on several other fronts. Trade deals struck directly between Canada and other individual countries and trading entities must be a top priority. These direct country-to-country agreements help to mitigate the potential loss of a WTO deal. Canada has already struck deals with Chile, the United States and Mexico and is in various stages of trade talks with many others. In the end, the ultimate test for any trade deal is whether farmers are better off because of it. And there’s the rub. D e s p i t e a l l t h e f e d e ra l f o c u s o n increasing international trade and gaining access to international markets, there is no guarantee that increased trade will naturally improve farmers’ bottom lines. Ensuring competitiveness among input suppliers, funding research and development, and a proper package of farm supports are also key. So while western Canadian farmers could find much benefit in a WTO deal, it is only one part of a strategy for a healthy farm sector. A government that continues to keep the WTO door open, while also seeking other paths, will give our farmers the best opportunities possible.

Lack of transparency in private tours of research facilities by MPs troubling NATIONAL VIEW


As the House of Commons agriculture committee conducts an extensive study on the potential and problems of Canada’s agricultural biotechnology industry, critics of the technology say the fix is in. This is the story they tell. Witnesses heard so far have been overwhelmingly involved in the research or involved in the industry

that commercializes the results. Skeptics of biotech products and in particular genetically modified products have so far not been able to get a seat at the witness table. And during a national tour last week, members of the committee privately visited biotechnology research facilities in Olds, Alta., Saskatoon, Guelph, Quebec City, Truro, N.S., and Charlottetown, P.E.I, to get briefed on the type of research and potential at play. In Charlottetown, Health Coalition activist Mary Boyd asked if she could accompany MPs on their private visit to an industry site. She was told no. Lucy Sharratt, co-ordinator of the Canadian Biotechnology Action Committee, asked if the private visits would be recorded and the tran-

scripts made public. She was told no. It led Sharratt last week to complain about “the lack of transparency” around the committee site visits. Without recordings and transcripts similar to what are made at public committee meetings, how is the public to know if these meetings are simply a way for the industry or researchers to lobby for their sector? “We initially critiqued the tour as providing a public relations platform for the industry,” she wrote in an e-mail. The unrecorded site visits add to the impression. “Are the site visits PR junkets?” Francis Valeriote, the Liberal MP who worked with Conservative Randy Hoback to launch the biotech study, says the critics should be

more patient. As hearings continue in Ottawa over the next weeks, organic producers and other critics will be invited to have their say. Valeriote said the hearings will not be a whitewash for the industry and he is no cheerleader. But biotechnology will be a major factor in future agricultural research and a thorough airing of the potential and problems associated with that must be held. “This is not rah biotech,” he said. “There is a role for biotech and anyone who thinks we can pass a law to turn it off is misguided. But the organic people raise very legitimate concerns about contamination, saving seed and so on. We have to decloak the industry so all these issues are debated.”

Valeriote said the committee study is an attempt to address some of the issues that were not addressed when private member’s bill C-474 was defeated by Parliament. It would have required an analysis of potential economic hurt before any new GM variety is approved. “C-474 raised some very serious issues but it did not provide the solutions,” he said. “That is what we are looking at. I’m excited about the potential for the biotech industry and what it can do for agriculture far beyond the GMO debate, but I also recognize there are serious concerns that must be looked at.” The final report will reflect both sides, said Valeriote. So from his perspective, the fix is far from in. access=subscriber section=opinion,none,none

Farming progress brings new problems William Dascavich is a farmer from Edmonton


n the early years of western Canadian agriculture, fields were dotted with straw piles. They stood out like pimples on the Prairies. In the fall, when the grain was threshed, virtually every field had one. They varied in size and shape but generally appeared like miniature light-coloured mountains about 10 metres high. Bundles of grain that were stooked in the field were loaded on racks placed on wood or steel wheeled wagons, hauled to a threshing machine and fed into it. The machine separated the grain from the stalks and the chaff. The grain was hauled away into b i n s a n d t h e s t a l k s a n d c ha f f, referred to as straw, were blown through a large pipe into a pile. The pipe could be swivelled and adjusted for height, enabling the threshing machine operator to stack a proper pile.

When conditions were right for threshing at night, the straw was sometimes lit to burn as it fell on the ground from the pipe to provide light. At other times, it was lit because the straw was not required. These were tricky operations. Great care had to be taken to avoid having the fire get away and set the surrounding stubble on fire. Often there would be a wooden granary into which the grain was poured directly from the threshing machine. This was an additional hazard. Straw piles served a number of practical purposes. First and foremost they served as a storage for winter feed for cattle and horses. The animals preferred oat and barley straw. Wheat straw had little nutritional value. After freeze-up they headed for the straw piles and fed on the straw itself, as well as any grain that was not separated by the threshing machine. After feeding, they would bed down and use the straw pile for shelter. Many a calf and foal were born in the straw piles.

When bedding was required for the barns or sheds, a team of horses was hitched to a rack mounted on a bobsleigh in the winter, or a wagon in the summer, driven to the straw pile and loaded with straw. For this purpose wheat straw was best. When animals were feeding on straw piles, farmers had to keep a close eye kept on them. As horses and cattle fed on the straw through winter, they would eat and form caves in the piles. There were instances where an animal would be feeding deep in one of these caves and it would collapse, trapping the animal and suffocating it. It was not uncommon to find pregnant sows, many of which used to range freely in those days, using a straw pile as a shelter in which to throw their litter. A couple of weeks after farrowing, one could see them walking on the livestock path from the straw pile to the yard, followed by their litter of piglets. Dogs would also seek out the shelter of straw piles to have their

puppies. In the spring, when the livestock was back in the fields foraging, straw piles that were no longer required as a reserve for feed or for shelter would be burned. A farmer could always tell where a straw pile had been located in a field because the crop would be dense and lush on that spot for several seasons as a result of organic fertilizer being deposited by the animals. Freshly threshed straw would have a distinct clean smell to it. If the wind happened to be from the right direction, the smell from a threshing outfit would waft for quite a distance. As farmers switched to swathers and combines, straw piles and the benefits they provided gradually disappeared. Straw now comes in neatly packaged square or round bales. Livestock production has become specialized and concentrated. This progress did not come about without its own set of problems in dealing with animal (and human) health. access=subscriber section=opinion,none,none


Keeping water in liquid form with the aid of alternating current COWBOY LOGIC



t always gets warmer after a cold spell. Of course, that cold spell could last five or six months in some parts of the world. This winter, in North Dakota, the cold shifts from tolerable to intolerable about once a week. Even when it’s intolerable, like -25 F, we still tolerate it. We don’t have much choice in the matter. But thanks to all our modern conveniences, we can tolerate it pretty darn well. Water is one of those things that is a lot easier to manage when it’s above,

say, 32 F. Cattle like to have a little something to wash down their hay in the winter and, in my country, water is the cheapest input we’ve got for their daily diet. It’s not so easy to keep it in liquid form in the winter, but we don’t have to dig deep to get it and it’ll flow as fast as you can pump it. But if it sits still in a water tank for awhile when it’s 25 below, there are some issues. That’s when we start to appreciate our rural electric co-operatives. And the co-op board members who have to balance the books appreciate us when we plug in every possible 1,500 watt warming device we can find in the farm supply store to keep our water watery. We hardly have to swing an axe anymore to break ice. Just stand by the electric pole, lean on our retired axe handle and watch the meter spin around and around. I’ve got sinking heaters that sit on

the bottom of the tank and floating heaters that swirl around like a toy tugboat on top of the water. I’ve got a 20 gallon tub for the barn with its own internal heater and a plug-in cord. I refuse, however, to buy a heated dog dish. If the lion can lay down with the lamb, the dogs can drink water with the cows. I also have an open loop geothermal heating system on a pasture tank where my cows water in the winter. Open loop geothermal means I just let the water run all winter, overflow and sink back into the ground. But it does the trick, and the cost of running the pump to constantly circulate the 50 degree water is about the same as plugging in a couple thousand watts of electric heat. I like the idea of using free heat from the ground, but sometimes it’s hard to get enough of that heat to keep the pipes from freezing the water line that comes up through a

section of culvert that serves as a heat riser. That’s when I get another cord and send a good old 100 watt light bulb down the culvert. It throws off a fair bit of heat and works wonders. There’s always a little risk of fire but the way I see it, if a good fire gets going, it melts the water line and the hole in the water line acts like a cheap emergency fire sprinkler. I thought about going with a compact fluorescent bulb that doesn’t get as hot, but then you’re back to frozen water pipes. So far, so good this winter. Whenever we’ve froze up, we were able to fix it in short order with five gallons of warm water and a little propane torch. Combined with a lot of electricity, we should be able to make it to May.

I have done some travellin’ to places far away Just to feel and hear the wind as it travels on its way. Those northers down in Texas can chill you to the bone And the blizzards in Alaska will turn your blood to stone. There’s the twisters in the Midwest that wreck all in your path And there’s other places in the world where the wind will show its wrath. But from Cape Horn to the Circle and destruction in the Keys All the fury of the wind in Pincher Creek is called a breeze. — N.R. Burles


ind gusts were clocked at a peak of 214 km/h last weekend in regions near Pincher Creek, Alta. Despite the poem above, written by an area resident from a long-time ranching family, even the Pincher Creekers thought it went a bit beyond a breeze. The scenic Highway 22 to the west, which winds its way northward from here along the base of the Rockies, was closed to traffic because of wind. And as I drove the southern portion of Highway 2 on Feb. 12, behemoth trucks lay on their sides in the ditch, blown there by gusts and looking like relics in Mad Max movies. It’s a wonder there isn’t more damage from such force, but folks here seem used to it. It’s the price they pay for frequent reprieves from winter, so they keep things battened down. Breezes beyond 200 km/h do tax even the best construction but perhaps Alberta’s losses eventually become Saskatchewan’s gains. After all, it’s an ill wind that blows no good. For example, if you want to clean out your pick-up truck, park it facing east and open both doors. The job is done in seconds. Of course, the doors might also be missing but such are the chances you take. You’d think winds of those speeds would be ideal for wind power generation but that isn’t necessarily true. The hundreds of windmills in the region shut down when speeds are too high and too variable, according to a source in the industry. About 90 km/h is the cut-off point, depending on location and manufacture of the turbine. Winds at 140 km/h, which aren’t unheard of in these parts, can still see gusts of 180 to 200. That’s too much energy for most turbines, so they shut down in the interests of self-preservation. Given that most turbines in this region start turning at about 14 km/h, there’s still a pretty good window of power generation opportunity. access=subscriber section=opinion,none,none

PROBATE PROBLEM To the Editor: This is a long overdue reminder of the stupidity of our not so democratic process. A few years ago my father passed away and due to ill health my mother, now deceased, was forced to live in a personal care home. I am the executor of my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate but I did not have the luxury of

having joint account with or Power of Attorney over my mother. Residents in personal care homes pay rent according to their yearly income. Because my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate has income I paid more to keep my mother than some whose hands are not legally tied. What is this, some kind of sick joke? A goofy lottery? If you are lucky you win, if you are unlucky the government wins? Health care is free but only for those whose hands are not legally tied. I should have had access to my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate the day after my father died. My mother was suffering a serious case of Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. She wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going anywhere with money or without, but her money was. But I guess my financial institution was bound and determined that my inheritance should go to the government. Any financial institution that knowingly allows peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inheritance to go to the government, they are as crazy as the system. If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand the system, they best leave me solely in charge of my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate. Ever heard of a waiver? Or would that deprive lawyers and government? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredible. I can contest my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate but the legal system

will not allow me to protect my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate. How stupid. You see, my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate does not need protection by the legal system; it needs protection from the legal system. My father did have a will but he did not understand probate. Frankly neither did I. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appreciate lawyers and government coming into my life unannounced. Neither did my father. My father would roll over in his grave if he knew who is in control of his estate. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s criminal that lawyers and government profit at the expense of people who are too honest for their own good. The problem is that some people do not realize that they are victims of the system or not until it is too late. I also caution against investing in RRSPs and RIFs. Both of these are government-controlled and both of these tie up your money. Coincidence? Unless you know when you are going to die or when your brain is going to die, your estate could be tied up twice. In the fall of 2005 a poll taken in Alberta showed that 76 percent of the public was unhappy with the red tape and cost involved in acquiring guardianship over family members. My sentiments exactly. The process is called committeeship. For a substantial fee you apply to the courts and then have to answer to the legal system in order to handle the business affairs of a family member deemed incompetent. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need the legal

system holding a gun to my head. If family members are in complete agreement over estates, financial institutions, lawyers, and government have absolutely no business interfering. Ever heard of a waiver? Or would that deprive lawyers and government? I should mention, there is much more to this fiasco than can be printed in a short story. And there is farm property. We were in the office of my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer five months before Dad passed on. It was already too late to acquire Power of Attorney over Mom. To this day I seriously question why my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer allowed my father to leave his entire estate in my momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands. There are solutions to this atrocity â&#x20AC;&#x201D; abolish probate and committeeship. Both of these are a free ride for lawyers and government and an insult to the victims who have to babysit this crap. If you live in a province with the same goofy system as Manitoba, fix it. If you live on a civilized planet, I would like to hear from you. Walter Kuzyk, Portage la Prairie, Man.

COMPOSTING WASTE To the Editor: Once again the general public is confronted with one-sided report-

ing. The article written by Shannon Moneo (WP, Feb. 3 issue), out of Victoria, regarding slaughterhouse waste composting is so blatantly biased and lacking in facts representing both sides of the issue itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s embarrassing. The fact that the article states â&#x20AC;&#x153;1,300 tonnes of specified risk material are expected to be composted annually at Spa Hills Farmâ&#x20AC;? just goes to show the complete lack of knowledge or concern regarding this subject. 1) The designer of this composter is quoted as saying we are not ready for this type of facility because the regulations (OMRR & MOE) are not being enforced. And this same company, Transform Compost Systems is in deep trouble in Welland, Ont., having been shut down several times for odour complaints akin to rotting corpses or a strong vomit smell, and that facility is only composting Municipal Waste. 2) Rainer Farms in Darfield has spent over two years trying to obtain Class A compost, and Mitchell insists he can accomplish this in a mere six weeks. 3) The government of B.C. has stated in its regulations that this type of facility should not be located in or near a community and when asked why it would not be placed on crown land, their answer was â&#x20AC;&#x153;This type of composting is not proven.â&#x20AC;? So it appears our government would prefer to put the people of

Recent research has also stated that prions may also be transferred by the air. If any infectious prions are present in Mitchell’s compost and he fertilizes his fields with it the crops he grows will be infected and passed on. Prions will cause Mad Cow Disease in cattle, scrapies in sheep and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disorder in humans. There is no cure. 5) This community fought against this type of facility for three years yet Mitchell will have the readers believe very few are against this facility. Given the size of Silver Creek one would have to agree that 150 signatures against this facility is a large percentage. No one disputes the need for something to be done with slaughterhouse waste but what is disputed is the location. The Ministr y of Environment (MOE) has informed us, those concerned about this facility, that if we have any concerns we should direct those to Mr. Mitchell and not to the MOE. The government seems relieved to finally have this monkey off its back and damn the consequences to those affected. The general public has a right to know the truth and all the facts regarding this type of facility and not the drivel the newspapers continue to feed them. One may feel very safe being miles away from this facility but ask yourselves, what if prions get into the watershed? What will that mean for all of us? Once prions contaminate air or water there is no getting them back. Many people get their drinking water from natural sources. Many people have cattle that drink from streams. What if?

Welcoming newcomers vital to communities SPIRITUAL VIGNETTES



friend and I were talking about the Asian immigrants who have recently moved to our small town: Koreans coming as motel keepers, Filipinos coming as caregivers for our seniors, another group that took on a fast-food franchise. Within a relatively short time our long-standing traditional population

has been augmented. What happens now? Will we remain little ethnic ghettos, solitudes that don’t have much to do with each other except in a service capacity? For 100 years there has been a slow blending. There are occasional bouts of cultural exchange with nearby Natives and attempts at the working together of religious denominations. Now this change is so abrupt, backed by a worldwide web of technology. Misunderstandings, suspicions and conflict could take root unless early attempts are made to reach across cultural, ethnic and religious barriers. But who makes the first step? If we want to make ours a sustaining community, we have the power and responsibility to constantly work

toward more positive ends. Churches can have a big role organizing suppers, making occasion for groups and individuals to talk, making opportunities for newcomers to learn what rural communities and rural culture have to offer. I once saw a television program where the leaders from a synagogue and a Baptist congregation, who lived near each other, had active exchanges with each other. Not everyone thinks the same, but we need to try to cross barriers and build understanding. Communities that respond in this way could lay a solid foundation that could lead to a vital future.

MAIL SERVICE To the Editor: Re: Mail Service (WP, Jan. 13) experienced by John Hamon. During the 1960s and 1970s I lived in Cranbrook, Calgary, Lethbridge, Kelowna and Creston.

NUCLEAR POWER To the Editor: During a meeting with municipalities in the constituency of Redwater Athabasca in late January, members of the Alberta legislature Ray Danyluk, Jeff Johnson and presenters from various departments of the Alberta government stated the focus of Bill 50 was to support projects like the introduction of nuclear power in Alberta. Direct quote; “Instead, the presenters explained that the focus was on aiding ‘co-generation’ projects near Fort McMurray to sell power to the grid, and to facilitate the eventual building of a nuclear power facility in the province’s northwest.” Smoky Lake Signal Jan. 26. I am concerned that municipal

governments in this province have not been proactive enough in discussing nuclear power in their respected communities. How many municipalities in Alberta actually have a position on nuclear power? It seems rather disconcerting to me that the Alberta government states publicly that nuclear power is eventually going to happen before actually talking to the people of Alberta themselves. It would appear that now is the time for municipal politicians to rise up and take a position on nuclear power. With the current political environment in Alberta, it would also seem to me that this is a prime opportunity for Albertan’s to make nuclear power, along with the other issues surrounding Bill 50, 36, 19 and 24, a major leadership race question and an election issue. Otherwise we will have to subsidize nuclear power, nuclear waste and the other societal and health-care costs associated with nuclear power.

FOREIGN INVESTING To the Editor: The Feb. 3 issue Land a wise choice for investors, farmers. There is going to be more and more

OPEN FORUM international interest in purchasing land in agricultural production and more pressure to sell your land and rent it back. It makes sense that large, net importing nations want to hedge their food security positions. Following suit will be non-agricultural interests seeing a very strong long-term investment into global food security. The laws of supply and demand are very strong here — land/food is in short supply. So much so that the most powerful decision makers in the world are quietly trying to secure their position while the buy in is still cheap. To buy land and then rent it back, no matter how it is spun, pencils out to a profit, either in a spot or a longterm position, for someone else. For the short and medium term, land values are going to rise considerably. If it wasn’t we would not see this type of international interest. This is going to make it more difficult for domestic producers to increase their holdings but I believe the price of our products will increase accordingly to support local producer investment into land. If at all possible, sell your land to someone who is local. It makes me nervous to see a large portion of productive land owned by foreign investors. Representatives to these investment groups will push the point that it would be counter-productive to abuse their investment. In my heart of hearts I know that the

stewardship of the land is best kept by the people who live on it. Push your local MP very hard to lobby for a study into the potential effects of losing control of this resource. Since I was a small boy and every year since I have had to listen to my father and others like him say, “... one day the world is going to realize that they can’t take for granted what we do as producers of food...” They are finally receiving the recognition of “I told you so.” What this interest in our land now represents is an acknowledgement of the strength of our products and the profit we can now realize. We are finally in the driver’s seat and if graphed linear, will only improve. It is now our turn to see the benefits of our endurance in this business, we are finally in control — Carpe Diem!

APAS COMPLAINT To the Editor: Why is (Agricultural Producers of Saskatchewan) so dysfunctional? APAS continues to abuse the trust and hard-earned money that some of the producers of this province are putting into this organization. As well as a continued complete lack of good policy for agriculture, and non-existent public presence, now they are wasting your money by paying a high-priced lawyer to harass a past-president by sending out threatening letters. If they are stupid enough to take me to court, I will win. Over its history, no other organization has wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars on legal fees and severance payouts. In 10 years it has burned though over 40 staff, through p o o r m a n a g e m e n t a n d b o a rd incompetence. Now I see on their website the latest circus act at the Crop Production Show. What’s next, will they dress their communications person up in a monkey suit and give away used vacuum cleaners to its members? As it was so very well put in “ APAS Nurses” WP letter Jan. 27. This once respected voice for farmers has fallen to a sham. Only when (Saskatchewan Association of Rural Muncipalities) sets up an ag policy committee with a public forum to gather farmer’s input, will the producers of this province have a credible voice. And it would only cost us about $1,500 per RM. Glenn Blakley, Tantallon Sask.

AUSTRALIAN PRICES To the Editor: In the Feb. 3, 2011, issue of The Western Producer, Fred G. Willis claims that Australia has lower wheat prices for almost all Australian farmers since the adoption of a dual market. Mr. Willis states, “With the dual market system, the AWB is unable to get higher grain prices and is now treated as another grain company.” Of course, this comes with no validation using any data or statements from independent sources. I have had the opportunity to speak with some Australian farmers via the internet and the comment I have received has been this:

“Even I have to admit privately I thought this messy harvest might test the deregulation system and we as growers will get taken to the cleaners, but it seems almost the reverse. “Feed wheat yesterday for instance, there were from my count 23 buyers operating with cash and about nine different pool operators with 18 different pool options for feed wheat. “Cash prices ranged from $130 per tonne to $205 port basis. “Die-hard pool participants never had so many pool choices, so they have their cake and can eat it too.” I can also supply cash prices that will be much better than any so-called option under the CWB but the same old rhetoric will be used that cash prices cannot be compared to pooled prices so I won’t waste my time. The frustration I, and many other western Canadian farmers have, is that it has been proven that an open/ dual market functions quite well in Eastern Canada and now Australia. Why it will not work here is beyond comprehension but that is what the CWB and its supporters would like us to believe. For me it will take much more than an assertion or statement that the dual market system will not work. Actual numbers to prove that a dual market will not work will be required since it has been shown many times using actual cash values for wheat that the CWB does not return a premium for the wheat it expropriates from western Canadian farmers. A plebiscite is not needed. An end to the CWB monopoly over western Canadian farmers is required so I can grow wheat that provides more choices and prices that are greater than what we currently receive.

DECONTAMINATE THE LAND To the Editor: It was a pleasure to chat with you (Barb Glen) . Your expressions in the Dec. 30th issue are a breath of fresh air. “It’s the difference between the stuff under your fingernails and the stuff responsible for all food production, foundations and all futurers!” This is a heavenly truth, and if you continue, you are about to bring a new heartbeat to food production. Your statement “That soil may have the means to eliminate human disease?” Absolutely — We have enormous hope and it has to be done. We are convinced by the findings of our medical researchers and good doctors — that in North America most humans, even the unborn, have chemicals that don’t belong in their bodies. If our health authorities were to rigorously test our food, water and soil, we’d likely have the answer to your question. To have healthy, safe food, we would have to start by first decontaminating the land. All chemical toxic to man, beast or our environment should be banned, surely we can make non-toxic chemicals where needed. World health authorities need stricter laws to protect all our soils — they give us life.

Syngenta disputes research findings Company says yield advantage reported A U.S. government study that shows insecticidal seed treatments have no effect on soybean yields in South Dakota r uns contrar y to other research, says a Syngenta spokesperson. Palle Pedersen, Syngenta technical manager for development of seed treatments for corn and soybeans, said field trials on seed treatments have proven that the product does increase soybean yields. “Looking at those other universities from the upper Midwest, you can look at my old data from Iowa State, (data) from the University of Wisconsin, the University of Illinois … they show the same thing. They show the advantage of the insecticide,” said Pedersen, who was a soybean agronomist at Iowa State before he joined Syngenta. For example, Pedersen conducted a study for the Iowa soybean checkoff program in 2005. “We saw a 2.8 bushel (per acre) yield advantage … for fungicide and insecticide (seed treatment), compared to not treated at all.” He also referred to field trials conducted in 2010 by Direct Enterprises Inc., an Indiana seed treatment and inoculant distributor. Based on data from 11 states in the U.S. Midwest, Direct Enterprises found that a combination of fungicidal and insecticidal seed treatments on soybeans yielded two to six bushels more per acre than fields with untreated seeds. Ted Labun, technical manager for Syngenta Seedcare in Canada, said soybeans treated with insecticide are also yielding more north of the border. “We’ve had three years of experience with commercial growers using CruiserMaxx beans and we’re seeing anywhere from a two to four bu. advantage (over untreated seed).” Pedersen also disagreed with U.S. Department of Agriculture entomologist Jonathan Lundgren’s conclusion that insecticidal seed treatments kill predator insects that feed on soybean aphids. Pedersen said there’s no scientific evidence to back up that conclusion. “I’ve never seen any scientific evidence that beneficials, like ladybugs and these things that are common predators of soybean aphids, that they are harmed by any neonicotinoid insecticides,” he said. Labun estimated 30 percent of soybean acres in Canada have seed treated with insecticide and fungicide. Almost no soybean acres had treated seed five years ago, he added. The cost of fungicidal and insecticidal seed treatment is approximately $14 per acre, Labun said. Bayer, the manufacturer of the other insecticide in Lundgren’s study, did not respond to interview requests. access=subscriber section=news,crops,none

Seed treatment not worth cost: study Soybean trials | Researcher says killing all insects makes little economic or ecological sense STORIES BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

An American entomologist has concluded that insecticidal seed treatments do not reduce aphid numbers or increase soybean yields. Jonathan Lundgren, who works for the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Brookings, South Dakota, said two years of field trials have shown that soybean growers are worse off if they plant seed treated with insecticide because the insecticide kills the natural enemies of soybean aphids. “We found no yield benefits resulting from seed-applied insecticides. The beans with insecticide performed similarly to untreated seeds,” Lundgren said. “At $12 to $15 per acre (for soybeans), it turns out that this seed treatment is costing growers a lot of money unnecessarily.” Lundgren and colleague Michael Seagraves conducted replicated field trials in 2009 and 2010 that compared soybean seeds treated with insecticide to untreated soybeans. The researchers treated the soybeans with imidacloprid, a Bayer product sold as Gaucho, or thiamethoxam, a Syngenta product sold as CruiserMaxx. “We purchased purified chemistries and put them on ourselves at the label rate,” Lundgren said. “We used the exact same bean variety for all three treatments, so we controlled for this factor. No fungicide treatment (was used).” T h e y i e l d s f ro m t re a t e d a n d untreated soybeans were equivalent:

We found no yield benefits resulting from seed-applied insecticides. JONATHAN LUNDGREN U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

55 bushels per acre for both cases in 2009 and 44 bu. per acre in 2010. The scientists also concluded that seeds treated with insecticide had no effect on the soybean aphid population. “(Aphid numbers) reached economic injury levels on the same date in all treatments in 2009, and were equivalent in 2010 as well,” said Lundgren, who in 2010 was named the top young scientist within the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service. While the insecticides were ineffective on aphids, Lundgren found the chemicals killed off pirate bugs, lady beetles and other predators that feed on soybean aphids. “So not only do insecticidal seed treatments on soybeans unnecessarily cost farmers money for a non-existent service, but it appears that they may actually cost producers money by reducing natural resistance to aphid establishment,” he said. The South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council sponsored Lundgren’s research because growers had questions about the efficacy of insecticidal seed treatments, said council chair Dave Iverson. “We wanted unbiased data compared to the companies’ (data).”

Iverson didn’t know what percentage of South Dakota soybean growers use insecticidal seed treatments, but said the product is widely used. Manitoba Pulse Growers Association president Andrew Saramaga said it’s hard to know how many growers plant seed treated with insecticide in his province, but a number of them wonder if the potential benefits are worth the $10 per acre cost. Lundgren said insecticidal seed treatments have become commonplace for almost all field crops in the last decade, but little research has been done to validate the products’ efficacy or economic value. “These seed treatments are being strongly advocated for most field crops these days, with little thought as to whether they are truly needed and whether they truly save the farmer money,” he said. For instance, Lundgren said the Bt gene in corn controls the crop’s primary pests, but that leads to the question, what are the seed treatments controlling? He also said it makes little economic or ecological sense to kill every insect in a field, especially beneficial insects that feed on pests such as soybean aphids. Agriculture Canada entomologist Julie Soroka said killing insects that prey on aphids may be a problem in soybeans, but insecticidal treatments on canola seed don’t threaten natural flea beetle control. “Flea beetles don’t have many natural enemies. There is a parasitic wasp…. It can parasitize flea beetles at rates of up to 80 percent,” said Soroka.

“But, in general, there are so many flea beetles that the typical parasitism rate is approximately five percent.” As a result, she said killing off most of the wasps with insecticidal seed treatments wouldn’t lose a substantial amount of natural flea beetle control. Soroka estimated that 90 percent of canola fields in Western Canada have seed treated with insecticide. “In any year, in any field, we don’t necessarily need that level of protection, but it’s easier to put it on, just in case we do.” Lundgren said more research is needed on the economic value of insecticidal seed treatments for all crops. Iverson said Lundgren’s work is a good start, but he would like to see more data before he makes up his mind. He expects most South Dakota soybean growers will continue to use insecticidal seed treatments. “When soybeans are $13 a bushel … it doesn’t take much of a yield difference to pay back $10 an acre (for seed treatment,” he said. “It’s like insurance. Hopefully I’ll get my money back.”

SOYBEAN TRIVIA • Cost of insecticidal seed treatment on soybeans: $8- $10 per acre • Number of acres with insecticidal treated seed: 30 percent • Canada and U.S. soybean acres: 82 million (2010) • Value of insecticidal seed treatment industry: $200-$250 million access=subscriber section=news,crops,none





Sask. farmer sold on intercropping despite IHARF trial results Higher yields, reduced herbicide costs | Colin Rosengren said the highest profits were on a canola-pea mix BY CHRISTALEE FROESE FREELANCE WRITER

INDIAN HEAD, Sask. — Increasing yields by planting two crops in one field has consistently worked for one southeastern Saskatchewan farmer. However, the results were not replicated in a field trial conducted at the Indian Head Agricultural Research Foundation (IHARF) last year. Research manager Chris Holzapfel said he believes intercropping has merit, but the IHARF study, which alternated rows of peas and canola in one field, did not show a yield benefit. “At Indian Head, we didn’t see any

advantage to intercropping compared to growing the two crops on their own,” Holzapfel said. “The canola yielded slightly under and the peas yielded slightly over, but it’s too early to understand why.” Colin Rosengren of Midale, Sask., suggested the study to IHARF based on the success he has had intercropping on his 5,000 acre farm over the last seven years. His planting combinations have included peas-canola, flax-chickpea, peas-canola-lentils and peas-canola-barley. His first attempt planting peas and canola together in 2004 resulted in an

increased profit of $40 per acre over and above what each crop netted on his mono-crop check strips. Low grain prices in 2004 prompted Rosengren to try the intercropping experiment on 120 acres. He seeded a two-third rate of canola through one point of his air seeder and put a two-third rate of peas through the fertilizer point. “The low prices and tight margins in 2004-05 made us look at different things like organic, pesticide-free and intercropping as well,” Rosengren said. “Martin Entz out of the University of Manitoba had positive results, so out


of interest I thought I’d try it to try and find more net profit.” Rosengren applied fertilizer on his first pea-canola intercropped field but at a lower rate. He also reduced his herbicide costs. He seeded and harvested the canola

and peas together using existing equipment but bought a cleaner to separate the crops. “We were pretty excited that first year because it showed pretty good potential and it gave us a way of growing peas and making money because back then the price of peas was less than $4 per bushel.” He said the Indian Head results were caused by the 12-inch spacing between the alternating rows of canola and peas, which led to the peas clinging to the canola and hampering its growth. Rosengren has had more success with mixed rows rather than the alternating rows used in the IHARF study. He expanded his intercropping acreage in 2005 by planting a variety of combinations that included mustard and peas and canola and peas. Acreage has continued to expand and now covers half of his farm. “Flax and chickpeas has been the most economically successful, as we were able to get a full crop of flax plus 14 bu. per acre of chickpeas, and that was without using fungicide,” said Rosengren. Chickpeas typically require at least four applications of fungicide per growing season. He has also experimented with cereal crops but with less success. “The cereals are bred to be so competitive on their own that there’s just not much of a gain to be made.” Darcy Boon of Maryfield, Sask., intercropped mustard and peas last year after reading about positive test results that the Westman Agricultural Diversification Organization (WADO) had with peas and canola in southwestern Manitoba in 2009 and 2010. WADO researcher Scott Chalmers found that the risk of canola shattering was reduced because the peas appeared to act as an anchor for the canola. As well, the risk of Mycosphaerella blight was reduced in the chickpeas, possibly because lower pea plant density or upright pea growth allowed for greater plant ventilation and reduced plant contact. Boon planted the peas first and then broadcast and harrowed in the mustard. He was disappointed with the results. The organic producer chose mustard because of the lack of organic canola seed. He also hoped the nitrogen-producing peas would supplement nitrogen needs of the mustard. However, his peas yielded only seven bu. per acre, with the mustard not faring much better. Boon believes his experiment failed because of ill-timed rain, forcing him to plant and harrow the mustard after the peas were up. Rosengren advised other farmers to try intercropping, particularly if the moisture content of their land is high. “A drum cleaner (to separate the harvested crop) is really all you’d need over and above what you already have.” He recommended starting with a pea-canola mix. “If you’re planting peas, consider throwing in canola with it. Just have a cleaner ready to clean it as you harvest, then take it right to town and put the extra money in your pocket.” Holzapfel said IHARF will continue to research the merits of intercropping and will include more variables and different soil types.




Trials show fungicide a ‘no-brainer’ if wet Canaryseed benefitted most | Yield per acre increased an average of 8.8 bu. over three years BY CHRISTALEE FROESE FREELANCE WRITER

INDIAN HEAD, Sask. — Saskatchewan research has convinced at least one producer to use fungicides on his crops this year if wet conditions persist. “I was thinking of using fungicide already, but with the results they showed, especially for flax and canaryseed, it has definitely confirmed my thinking,” said Roger Lafontaine, a grain farmer from Montemartre, Sask., who attended a recent seminar at the Indian Head Agricultural Research Foundation (IHARF). Field-scale fungicide trials conducted at IHARF showed that malting barley, field peas and wheat yielded two to six bushels per acre more on average in multi-year testing. The most significant spike in yield was found in canaryseed, which showed an 8.8 bu. per acre increase averaged over 2008, 2009 and 2010. Flax also responded well, showing a 30 percent yield increase over the non-fungicide crop in two out of three 2010 field trials. Research manager Chris Holzapfel said farmers should keep a close eye on growing conditions this year. The fungus inoculum for various strains of disease are more likely to be present considering wet conditions and high incidence of disease last year. “I have a feeling that we will be dealing with wet conditions early in the season and because we’re following a wet year, the inoculum is there,” said Holzapfel. “I would suspect 2011 will be a year that growers should be watching their fields particularly closely.” Lafontaine said it’s often too late to solve the problem once the signs of disease are present in a crop. He will be paying particular attention to the growing conditions in his fields this spring and summer. “You have to be willing and ready to do it beforehand,” he said. “Last year in our canola we had fungus in it already so if it’s wet this year, it’ll be even worse.” IHARF’s canola trials showed that the crop responded to fungicide 33 percent of the time, with an overall yield increase of one bushel per acre averaged over three years. The response was 20 percent in spring wheat, with a five year averaged yield increase of 2.2 bu. per acre. Field peas showed a 20 percent response, with a five year averaged yield increase of 3.3 bu. per acre. For malting barley, research results showed a response to fungicide 50 percent of the time with a yield increase of 6.6 bu. per acre averaged over four years. Researchers used a variety of fungicide brands and found no difference in results. Holzapfel said fungicide costs of $8 to $30 per acre make it important for each farm to do a cost-benefit analysis based on the latest environmental conditions. “The cons are that if you look at a lot of our data, if you just go in and apply fungicide year after year, you’re prob-

ably not going to be ahead on average,” said Holzapfel. “But if you get another year like last year that is conducive to a lot of disease showing up, that could cause bigger problems.” Lafontaine said he’s set to apply a fungicide at a moment’s notice. “According to the results we were shown, if it’s good growing conditions to wet, it’ll be a no-brainer. We’ll just do it.”

GM impact bill voted down but sponsors claim victory Export market concerns | Campaign for economic analysis will continue campaign. “I think the debate has just started,” Atamanenko said after his evening with a group that included Lucy Sharratt, co-ordinator of the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network. “I think we now have to focus on specific cases where a real threat to market disruption can be shown. That is how to make the case.”

The next morning, Sharratt was part of a group of activists issuing a call to action focusing on issues such as the potential threat of GM alfalfa. The National Farmers Union is part of the coalition. “The bill was voted down but a real debate about the impacts and future of genetic engineering has now started,” she said in a news release. In the House of Commons, Conservative and Liberal MPs combined Feb. 9 to defeat bill C-474 by a vote of 176-97. Atamanenko’s bill would have required an economic analysis of potential market closures or resistance before a new variety could be approved, particularly in GMOskeptical export markets. Opponents, including a strong lobby by the biotechnology and seed industry and some farm organizations, said it would inject politics and uncertainty into what should be a science-based process. Conservatives were opposed, arguing that even having the debate undermined confidence in the regulatory system and drove away investment. Liberals waffled. They voted to send C-474 to the Commons agriculture committee for public hearings because the issue of market acceptance is important. However, they ultimately voted against it because they said there was no road map on how the economic assessment would be done or by whom. After the vote, Atamanenko issued a bitter statement. “Once again we see these two major parties putting the interests of their big business buddies ahead of everyday farmers whose livelihoods can be destroyed in an instant from contamination by genetically engineered seeds and crops,” he said. Opponents of the bill celebrated, declaring the debate over. “The defeat of this bill is good news for farmers,” agriculture minister Gerry Ritz said in a statement after the vote. “It is critical that our system remain based firmly in science, not in politics.” The Canadian Canola Growers Association said MPs did the right thing. “The changes proposed in Bill C-474 would have only added ambiguity and uncertainty to our seed system with the end result being a loss of innovation and competitiveness for farmers,” president Ed Schafer said in a statement. Atamanenko said he will now try to convince the agriculture committee to hold hearings on specific cases, including the impact on Canadian alfalfa growers of the recent U.S. decision to license GM alfalfa for commercial use. Last week, the agriculture committee travelled from Alberta to Prince Edward Island examining the potential and challenges facing the biotechnology industry. It meant many members of the committee were not in the Commons for the vote.







Swiss take country-of-origin labelling seriously Tightly controlled regulations | Swiss products carry the flag and imports are taxed BY MARIANNE STAMM FREELANCE WRITER

COOL is not a discussion in Switzerland. It just is. “Country-of-origin regulations are actually always protection for a country’s own producers,” said Hans Schneebeli of the province of Zurich’s food safety department. Almost all fresh meat, even in the big grocery chains, seems to be from Switzerland, even though meat is produced much cheaper in the surrounding European Union. Packages are marked “Swiss meat” or “Swiss product,” but Schneebeli said consumers must be careful because there is a clear distinction between the two. A Swiss product can be packaged in Switzerland but be of foreign origin. The Swiss flag doesn’t necessarily guarantee Swiss origin. Labelling isn’t the only way Switzerland discourages foreign meat. “Often the customs tax is more expensive than the meat,” said Swiss butcher Eddie Mueller. That especially applies to better cuts of meat. Stringent Swiss laws don’t allow the use of antibiotics and hormones to stimulate growth, and all poultry must be free run. All imports produced using forbidden Swiss practices must be declared as such, even in restaurants. However, the legislation doesn’t apply when the product is mixed in with large amounts of other ingredients, such as eggs in noodles. Ever increasing pressure from consumer, animal rights and environmental lobbies have prompted grocery store chains to go beyond the standard. They have produced labels such as Natura Beef, in which calves stay with their mothers until slaughter at 10 months and have continued access to the outdoors, and Bio Weide Beef, in which cattle are raised on organic pastures but not necessarily with their mothers. Smaller labels, such as Heidi Beef, St. Gallen meat and Terra Suisse, have their own specific regulations that are tightly controlled. “Swiss labels sell,” Schneebeli said. “The consumer has the security of knowing how that food was produced.” However, the system can be frustrating for farmers. “Declaration is a huge problem,” said Henry Stamm, head of business management/controlling for Coop Switzerland. “It gets more complex the farther down the chain you go.” That means an enormous amount of paperwork for farmers to ensure traceability and accountability and continual adjustments in on-farm practices and equipment to comply with the regulations. Farmers must report every movement of every animal to a national beef databank. A similar databank is planned for other animals. access=subscriber section=livestock,news,markets

Cow stomach offers inside scoop on turning grass to fuel WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — Researchers looking for better ways to make biofuel turned to experts at breaking down grass — cattle. What they found were more than a dozen new compounds in bovine guts that might help make new, cheap sources of energy. They used new genetic sequencing techniques to find microbes that make enzymes that in turn can break down tough grasses into usable products. “Industry is seeking better ways to break down biomass to use as the starting material for a new generation of renewable biofuels,” said Eddy Rubin of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Joint Genome Institute in California, which led the study. “Together with our collaborators, we are examining the molecular machinery used by microbes in the cow to break down plant material.” Researchers used a cow that had a hole surgically opened into its rumen because they needed to find the bacteria that worked in airless environments such as a cow’s insides. Rubin’s team used metagenomics,


a gene-sequencing approach that maps the DNA of a community of organisms instead of one single creature or plant. Scientists use metagenomics to explore microbes living in and on people as well as to catalog the tiniest creatures of the sea. In this case, the goal was to find microbes that make enzymes that can efficiently break down the toughest fibres in switchgrass. It is a tough crop that can be used to produce ethanol and can grow in places where food crops do not grow well. However, it is also tough to break down. “Microbes have evolved over millions of years to efficiently degrade recalcitrant biomass,” Rubin said. “Communities of these organisms can be found in diverse ecosystems, such as in the rumen of cows, the guts of termites, in compost piles, as well as covering the forest floor.” Identifying the enzymes that give the tiny bacteria this power could make it easier to turn switchgrass and other plant products into fuel in factories. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

Immune imbalance may trigger celiac disease CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — People with high levels of an immune system compound called Interleukin-15 may be primed to develop celiac disease, a digestive disorder that keeps sufferers from eating foods like cereal, pasta and beer. Blocking this compound in mice helped reverse the disease, U.S. researchers said. Vitamin A and retinoic acid, a byproduct of vitamin A used in the acne treatments Retin-A and Roche’s former acne drug Accutane, may exacerbate the problem, acting as a trigger for the inflammatory response, the team said. The findings suggest that an imbalance of compounds like Interleukin 15 that regulate the immune system could be an underlying cause of food allergies. “If there is a disregulation in the intestinal environment, this alone can explain how you can lose tolerance to some food items,” Dr. Bana Jabri of the Digestive Disease Research Core Center at the University of Chicago, who led the study, said in a telephone interview. Celiac disease is caused by an abnormal immune response to gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and other foods. It can lead to severe health problems including anemia, poor bone health, fatigue and weight loss.

EU lawmakers OK banana duty cuts


BRUSSELS, Belgium (Reuters) — European Union lawmakers have approved a deal to cut EU import tariffs on bananas from Latin America, ending the world’s longestrunning trade row. A majority in the European Parliament voted to cut duties on Latin American bananas by 35 percent over six years, potentially improving the competitive edge of producers such as Chiquita and Dole over smaller growers in Africa, the Caribbean, Pacific and the European Union. Once rubber-stamped by the World Trade Organization later this year, the deal will mark a victory by the world’s largest banana producers in a near 20-year battle for cheap access to the EU, the world’s largest consumer of the fruit.

Forecasts predict drying out in Australia SYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) — Australia faces average rainfall in the key coal mining and farming regions of Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria states in the next three months, helping to dry out rain soaked mines and crops. Most of Australia’s eastern coast, home to some of the world’s most important coal mines and key grain growing regions, could receive average rainfall in the February-April period, the weather bureau said, after a peak in the La Nina weather event dumped devastating rains on the region in December and January. However, the chances of above median rainfall are between 60 to 70 percent across the northern half of Queensland, key sugar areas, and the southwestern corner of Western Australia state.

Rising wheat prices don’t necessarily mean bread prices should go up, says the French government. | FILE PHOTO RISING FOOD COSTS

French watch prices PARIS, France (Reuters) — Soaring commodity prices will lead to higher food prices, but rises should be fair for farmers, food companies and consumers, French government officials said, adding they would monitor increases for abuse. French consumers will need to pay more for meat this year to cover farmers’ rising costs for animal feed, but commodity inflation does not justify rises in other staples such as bread, agriculture minister Bruno Le Maire and secretary of state for trade Frederic Lefebvre told reporters. “We don’t want clever (people) taking advantage of this to raise consumers prices in an unjustified way,” Le Maire said. Wheat accounts for some five percent of the cost of a baguette, with expenses for energy and salaries making up a greater part. French agricultural prices rose 4.2 percent in December and 21.6 percent in 2010, bringing the average prices paid to farmers close to the highs of 2008, French statistics office Insee said.

one-third of the pig herd was culled and the country lowered tariffs on meat imports in an effort to contain food inflation. “When one removes that many animals from their domestic herd, it would suggest that it’s going to take, in the case of swine, a couple of years to come back,” said Martin Rice, executive director of the Canadian Pork Council.

SEOUL, South Korea (Reuters) — South Korea’s hog industry could take one or two years to recover from a foot-and-mouth epidemic that has forced it to boost its meat purchases. A long-term hike in the country’s pork imports, mainly from the United States, could support U.S. hog futures that have already reached record highs partly because of potential Korean demand. Pork shipments into South Korea may rise 20 to 30 percent from last year’s 290,000 tonnes after nearly

“We think we’ll be trading good news from South Korea for the next two to three months,” said Rich Nelson, an analyst at Allendale Inc. “One thing we had been concerned about was that it would not be extended (the slashing of the tariff ), and that the 60,000 metric tons might be it.” Korean hog farmers strongly opposed the government’s tariff reduction, saying it threatened to destroy the domestic industry. The government keeps assuring consumers that meat from foot-andmouth infected animals is not harmful to humans. However, consumers are increasingly opting for imports, which cost less and look cleaner. While U.S. January pork export results are not yet available, cash sources and traders said South Korea has likely bought 60,000 tonnes or more of U.S. pork since the start of the year. The U.S. is the largest exporter of pork and poultry to South Korea, while Canada is the second largest. Tim McRae, an economist at Meat & Livestock Australia, said U.S. sales to South Korea had already been picking up because of the weak dollar and the shipment of select cuts into that market. The Korean won has gained 10 percent against the U.S. dollar in the past six months. The massive slaughter of animals against foot-and-mouth and avian flu in South Korea is also expected to slow grain imports to the country. Feed makers, who are usually active buyers, had issued only one soybean meal tender for feed since midDecember as they shied away from surging international grain prices. However, it has been a boon for companies that market imported meat and fish and produce disinfecting materials. Shares of Dongwon Fisheries jumped by 65 percent over four sessions in mid-January to a record high, before pulling back, while Choong Ang Vac, an animal vaccination maker, hit a year high in December. The foot-and-mouth outbreak in South Korea could also make it harder to settle trade disputes. “It makes it more difficult to negotiate because the people we would talk to are very preoccupied,” said John Masswohl, director of government and international relations for the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association. “It’s the same animal health officials, same food safety officials, who are working around the clock to try and contain the situation over there. It becomes a distraction.” Canadian beef has been banned in South Korea since BSE was discovered in Canada in 2003. Canada has complained to the World Trade Organization and a decision is expected early this year. The two countries have been talking to each other ahead of the decision.





French farmers eager to embrace new energy Additional income reaped from wind and solar power IGNEY, France (Reuters) — An increasing number of farmers are expected to claim a share of France’s renewable energy sector to help cope with farm price volatility and counter environmental criticism. Solar, wind and biomass energy are taking off in France in the wake of national and European energy targets. Farmers see them as a potential source of steady income amid erratic commodity prices, as well as a way to cut costs and a riposte to an image of farms as polluters. French farm income is estimated to have risen by two-thirds in 2010 on the back of surging grain prices. Yet farmers say such gains are swallowed up by losses in bad years as well as rising costs linked to higher oil prices and stricter environmental rules. Although renewable energy is unlikely to transform most farmers’ livelihoods, it can ease pressures. Farm groups are looking to biogas in particular as a model for efficient, sustainable and locally controlled agriculture. For now, solar and wind power are more common. Ninety-nine residents of France’s northeastern farm belt provided 10 percent of a $47.4 million investment by local start-up Erelia to build 22 windmills in the area. “This project gave an impetus to renewable energies as a whole in the district,” said Stephane Malgras, a cattle producer who invested $13,000 in the project. Malgras said he receives a seven percent annual dividend on top of $8,000 he receives each year for renting part of his fields for two turbines. “It’s a bit of income, but it’s not substantial compared to the revenues of the farm,” he said. Solar energy has offered the prospect of a bigger return for farmers. Several thousand of them have signed up to receive attractive rates set by the government for selling electricity to the grid from roof-integrated panels. However, the authorities are now trying to rein in a boom in solar projects by decreeing a freeze on new approvals, provoking the fury of farmers. French farmers are also supplying rapeseed and sugar beets to the biofuel industry, but the venture is proving to be controversial. Environmentalists say biofuel is unsustainable, while farm groups criticize the passive role that farmers are assigned after the system is in place. They are now backing biogas as better integrated into agriculture. On-farm biogas units use manure, fodder and other organic matter to produce gas that yields electricity and heat, plus a byproduct, digestate, which is used to fertilize soil. “It’s sustainable development par excellence,” said Claude Roy, a member of the committee that advises the French farm ministry. “The farmer controls the added value from A to Z.” Producers can sell the electricity, use the heat to reduce their energy bills and use the digestate to cut access=subscriber section=news,none,none

their fertilizer costs. Agricultural biogas is still tiny in France, with only 20 to 30 farm installations compared to 5,000 in Germany. Constraints include a demanding technical process, competition for organic waste from industrial firms and unattractive electricity tariffs. “It’s much more complicated to do biogas than install solar panels on a roof,” said Olivier Bertrand of the French renewable energy lobby SER.

The fine line between

investment and

exploitation This is part one in a two-part series on the worldwide rush by investors to buy farmland and its implications. This story focuses on how the rush to buy foreign land has earned big profits for savvy entrepreneurs. Next week, we focus on the risks of exploitation in developing countries. Many investors put money into Brazilian land 13 years ago. Since then, it has become a global trend among non-farmers


SSUMPTION, Ill. (Reuters) — Phil Corzine was touring South America as part of an agricultural leadership program when he saw the future. The third-generation corn and soybean farmer from Illinois had already visited Chile and Peru when he arrived in Brazil. He was smitten. “For whatever reason, it really appealed to me, and I said, ‘boy, I’d really like to find a way to somehow participate down here.’ ” That was 13 years ago, long before Brazil became one of the hottest investment destinations in the world and almost a decade before food price inflation started a scramble for agricultural land that last year saw $14 billion invested in the sector. By 2004, Corzine and a couple of farming friends had teamed up with a Brazilian partner, formed a company, South American Soy, and bought their first land in the central Brazilian state of Tocantins: 2,500 acres at the bargain price of $100 an acre. An acre in Illinois cost $5,000 at the time. South American Soy now farms 5,000 acres. It has become profitable in the past two years, partly because it now also manages land for other investors, including a Swiss investment fund. On paper, South American Soy is looking at a 140 percent appreciation in the value of its land after seven years. And that’s before they include the profits from their crops. Corzine and his fellow investors are a tiny part of a huge global trend. Land, long ignored by non-farmers as an asset class, has become one of the hottest investments over the past five years. Demand for arable land shot up when food prices spiked in 2007 and 2008. Land prices stalled after the credit crunch and global downturn, but another round of food inflation over the past year has fuelled new demand and price gains. A study commissioned by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) estimated last year that global private sector investment in agriculture hit $14 billion in 2010 and could triple in the next five years. access=subscriber section=news,ag_finance,none

The World Bank estimates that 111 million acres worth of large-scale farmland deals were announced in 2009, more than 10 times the annual average expansion of agricultural land in the decade to 2008. “Demand for land acquisition continues and may even be increasing,” the World Bank said in a

report, which asked whether the rush for land can “yield sustainable and equitable benefits?” It’s a good question. There were cries of land grab and exploitation when fast-growing countries in the Middle East and Asia began buying land in Africa four years ago. Now hedge funds,

pension funds, multinational corporations and farmer co-operatives are also piling in, bringing new ideas and more professional management. But the land rush still poses plenty of dangers, both for the countries targeted for their rich, underexploited land and for those

sinking money into a farm halfway around the world. The World Bank calls the risks immense. “(But) at the same time, these risks correspond to equally large opportunities.” Brazil is a case in point. Tens of thousands of foreign investors poured $26 billion in direct

Brazilian land. The effect has been to cap at 12,350 acres the amount of land that can be bought by a foreigner or a company that’s more than 50 percent foreign owned. Rolando Viera Jr., a special adviser in the Brazilian attorney general’s office, said the change was triggered by 2008’s global food shortage, the

need to secure land to produce biofuel and the growing realization that foreigners were buying up “significant parts of the national territory.” Just as other countries define certain industries or assets as strategic, whether it is ports, airports or communication systems, Brazil has decided its land is “a fundamental

strategic asset,” Viera said. “It is a dramatic issue. These are factual circumstances that are present and that impact the life of the country and could mean a great comparative advantage in international trade for Brazil.” Do Brazil’s restrictions risk chasing away investors?

Some analysts worry that the new government of Dilma Rousseff could prove even more protectionist, but Erasto Alaimeda, a Latin America analyst at the Eurasia Group, said Brasilia is likely to remain open to investors, even if it has tightened up the rules. “One of the big lessons that the Brazilian left … have learned (is) that responsible macroeconomic policies, but also foreign investment, are a precondition for higher rates of growth and that they can benefit a lot politically from that,” he said. Perhaps, but for now the rule change has investors on edge. Tarcisio Kroetz, a lawyer who represents hedge funds and foreign investors in forest land around the southern Brazilian city of Curitiba, said Brazil may miss out on billions of dollars. “Investors are looking for clarity and they are looking for legal assurance that the law is not going to be changed, that the game is not going to be changed in the next few years,” he said. Uncertainty in Brazil could push more investors toward neighbouring Argentina, or to Africa. Philippe de Lapérouse, managing director of global food, agribusiness and biofuels at the consulting firm HighQuest Partners, said as much as 45 percent of investment capital targeting opportunities in farmland had been focused on Brazil until the foreign ownership decision. Now that interest “has abated and may be shifting to other regions.” There are plenty of potential problems if it does, both for investors and the countries in which they’re investing. Take the village of Yainkasa, Sierra Leone, which has leased 123,600 acres of land to Addax Bioenergy. People in Yainkasa would like to ensure the prosperity of future generations, which may have been their aim when they leased their land. However, villagers now say that Addax’s sugar cane crop is much bigger than they had imagined and threatens their food harvests. “We were tricked,” said rice farmer Alie Bangura. “We feel the way we’re being treated is not in line with our agreement. They promised things when we gave up our land that didn’t happen.” Addax said it conducted lengthy consultations with local residents and that a large share of the $5 per acre it paid for the land went directly to local farmers. A development program to improve food yields will ensure villagers have enough to eat. Addax social affairs manager Aminata Kamara said some of the complaints are based on ignorance. Whatever the truth, many experts worry that the rush for land will hurt poor local residents. Africa’s vast lands are already the focus of intense attention. An eclectic array of investors are lining up to sink hundreds of millions of dollars into the continent, whether it be private western investment funds wanting to farm organic beans in southern Africa or Qatar looking at projects in Sudan, Ethiopia and Eritrea. However, the World Bank report said countries in Africa with weak governance, including many with the most sought-after land, are unable to cope with the land rush. As a result, land acquisition often deprives local people, in particular the vulnerable, of their rights without providing appropriate compensation,” it said.

about the future of the Gulf state’s scarce water resources. The U.A.E., which has seven percent of the world’s known oil reserves, is among the top per capita consumers of water in the world. Abu Dhabi consumes 550 litres of water per person per day, an official from the emirate’s Environment Agency said last year, compared to a world average of 180 to 200 litres. At the same time, the small country suffers from a chronic shortage of water because of its year-long hot and dry climate. The U.A.E. depends on ground water and desalination plants, but its fresh water reserves are expected to deplete in the next five decades, according to the Environment Agency. “Wars can erupt because of water,” said Mohammed Khalfan al-Rumaithi, director general of the U.A.E.’s National Emergency and Crisis Management Authority. “Using ground water for agriculture is risky. If it doesn’t harm us it will harm other generations,” Rumaithi told the Federal National Council, an advisory body with limited parliamentary powers, which was discussing plans for securing food and water reserves. Neighbouring Saudi Arabia said in 2008 it would cut domestic wheat production by 12.5 percent per year to save the desert kingdom’s scarce water supplies and rely entirely on imports by 2016 after trying to be selfsufficient for three decades. The U.A.E. is investing heavily in far ms in other countr ies. This secures food supplies but also is viewed by some as a way to reduce its consumption of fresh water. Abu Dhabi, the largest and wealthiest of the seven emirates that make up the U.A.E., distributed $25 million in subsidies last month to farmers who stopped growing a water-intensive fodder for camels. “We suffer from a shortage of water and we should think about solutions to preserve it rather than using it for agriculture,” Rumaithi said. Setting up strategic water reserves would safeguard against a possible disruption of the 70 desalination stations that supply 24 percent of the U.A.E.’s water demand, he said. Oil spills and harmful algae blooms create risks for the plants’ operations. Abu Dhabi is leading the U.A.E.’s plans to secure its water reserves. It launched a pilot in October for the world’s largest underground reservoir, with 26 million cubic metres of desalinated water. The $436 million reservoir will store 90 days of rationed water when completed. Rumaithi did not say how long water reserves would last if supplies from desalination plants were disrupted, but he said food reserves would last six months.






Russia eager to see exports resume Weather is key | Drought prompted the country to ban grain exports last year MOSCOW, Russia (Reuters) — Russia can regain its place among the world’s top wheat exporters as long as it can avoid catastrophes such as last year’s massive drought. Russia had plowed capital into its grains infrastructure as part of a longer-term strategy to push into international wheat markets. These efforts had made it the world’s third largest exporter in 200809 before falling prey to its worst drought in more than a century. The country had aimed to diversify earnings from its energy and minerals resources and planned to increase grain production by 25 percent to 133 to 136 million tonnes and double exports to 40 to 50 million tonnes in the next 10 to 15 years. The drought prompted Russia to ban grain exports until July 1, 2011, which originally undermined confidence in Russia as a supplier. However, traders still fulfilled existing contracts, buying supplies from other countries such as Kazakhstan at a loss if necessary. Markets are likely to welcome Russian grain back with open arms as a series of weather disasters propel wheat prices to 2 1/2 year highs. “We have lost the momentum, but there wasn’t a reverse in our longterm export strategy … and there has been no cut in the sowings area,” said Arkady Zlochevsky, president of the Russian Grain Union.

“Our clients in northern Africa and the Middle East are waiting for us eagerly as they are accustomed to buying our grain, the quality of which satisfies them.” Countr ies in the region have stepped up grain purchases and are anxious to reassure populations eyeing the political turmoil in North Africa. Russia, which had a grain crop of 60.9 million tonnes last year after 97 million in 2009, hopes to harvest 85 to 87 million tonnes this year, enabling it to resume exports on a small scale. Zlochevsky said Russian farms can raise the planted area by 30 million acres because most of them keep free land, which they cultivate with an interval of two to three years. “The key issue is investment in human capital,” said Narek Arutyunyan, chief executive officer of Pentagro, an agricultural company. “We do not have sufficient professionals in the agribusiness.” Zlochevsky said Russia may have an exportable grain surplus of 15 million tonnes in the 2011-12 crop year if the weather holds up, but will ship half that amount because the government may want to keep stocks at home for safety. “The expectations of an 85 million tonne crop are quite feasible if the weather is favourable … but if there is a disaster, then the situation will be

worse,” he said. Higher prices abroad make exports more lucrative for producers than sales within Russia. Voter concerns about inflation ahead of parliamentary polls in December and presidential elections next year mean the government is unlikely to allow exports unless they are sure Russia has enough grain to avoid a surge in domestic prices. “There are great doubts that exports will be opened (after July 1),” said Ivan Tyryshkin, president of Rusgrain, a major agricultural company. “There are many reasons, political, social. We will soon have presidential elections. And stocks are low. We do not expect any changes until the end of August. Everything will depend on the summer.” Dmitry Rylko, director of the Institute for Agricultural Market Studies think-tank, said the government had four options after July 1 to prevent a domestic grain deficit: • let the ban expire, which is seen as unlikely unless the harvest exceeds 85 million tonnes; • extend the ban for another year and then gradually lift it; • extend the ban until the end of 2011 and then lift it; • impose export quotas, which Rylko said would require a big administrative effort. The Russian Grain Union favours the quotas option. access=subscriber section=news,markets,none

GUELPH, Ont. — It is becoming almost impossible to guarantee an absence of genetically modified presence in Canadian crops because of the spread of GM varieties, says a plant researcher. Rene Van Acker, associate dean of the University of Guelph’s plant agriculture department, told a meeting of the House of Commons agriculture committee Feb. 8 that it is impossible to stop GM genes from migrating to fields where they are not wanted. And that creates huge problems for Canadian exporters trying to get product into markets where there is zero or little tolerance for GMO presence. “When crops of novel traits are grown commercially outside for any length of time, the movement of those traits beyond their intended destination is virtually inevitable,” he told MPs on a national tour to study the biotechnology industry. “The risk of escape increases with scale of production and associated equipment and as the number of participants in the production and handling increases.” Once the gene “flows” to places it is not supposed to be, the contamination cannot be reversed. “Once a given trait has escaped into the environment, which includes the agricultural supply chain, retraction is difficult, if not impossible,” said Van Acker. In a later interview, he said the food chain is close to reaching a tipping point when GMO content in food is inevitable and must be accepted at low levels. “I think a lot of people wonder at what point will it be completely ubiquitous in the food system and I know the organic sector wonders that as well.” He said it means the world must come to grips with this by making regulations that accept a low-level presence of GMO content in virtually all food. New Democratic Party agriculture critic Alex Atamanenko, who had sponsored a bill to make it more difficult to approve GM varieties, said in an interview Feb. 9 he does not accept the view that GM genes are so universal as to be unstoppable. “I think the horse is still in the barn,” he said. “This is not inevitable. We can still protect individual crops from the threat of contamination. The organic industry can survive, but we have to take action.” Van Acker saw another looming problem. Given the unavoidable migration of genes, he said governments also must deal with containment when plants are developed that contain

Canada must get realistic on GM rules Zero tolerance | Canada has pushed for change, while allowing no unauthorized GMO presence itself BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

GUELPH, Ont. — The dean of University of Guelph’s biological science college says the European Union is undergoing a sea change in its attitude toward trace amounts of unapproved genetically modified material. Michael Emes said it is now time for Canada to follow suit. Canada has been a leading advocate of allowing low-level presence of GM material in imports, even if it has not been approved in the importing country. Yet Canadian policy continues to impose a zero tolerance for imports containing unauthorized GM material. “With the EU decision now, it forces us to look back at our own regulations and perhaps become more realistic about what we push one way but don’t accept the other way,” he said in an interview after a Feb. 9 appearance before the House of Commons agriculture committee studying the biotechnology industry. An EU committee with government

backing came close last week to endorsing the idea that imported animal feed can have up to 0.1 percent content of unauthorized GM material. The existing threshold is so low that dust containing GM traces from the walls of a cargo ship have led to shipments of non-GM crops being turned back from EU ports. “Europe has started to change,” Emes told MPs. “ There are now GM potatoes which will be grown in German, Sweden, and the Czech Republic, and GM maize which is grown in Spain and Portugal with the approval of the EU.” He said Ireland has just approved GM maize in food and feedstocks. “So the regulatory landscape is changing in Europe,” he said. “I have little doubt that more will follow.” Emes, a Briton who was in the United Kingdom when anti-GMO attitudes hardened in the 1990s, said he watched British consumers panic over the foot-and-mouth disease and BSE outbreaks, which they considered a “failure of agriculture.”

With the EU decision now, it forces us to look back at our own regulations and perhaps become more realistic about what we push one way but don’t accept the other way. MICHAEL EMES BIOLOGICAL SCIENTIST

A research paper suggested a link between GM varieties and human health problems, aggressive language such as “Franken foods” was developed and media picked up the scare campaign. “Then Prince Charles got involved and the rest, as they say, is history.” He said European attitudes are changing because people are beginning to realize “we are facing some real challenges as we go forward with climate change and food supply. And I think we’ve gotten beyond some of the more pejorative language that was used early on in Europe.” Emes said there also is a growing

understanding that regulations based on absolute purity are unenforceable. “There is no such thing as zero anything,” he said in the interview. That is the argument agriculture minister Gerry Ritz has been using in trying to persuade the EU that zero tolerance rules cannot be met by exporters and that it is a trade barrier rather than a health policy. Yet Rene Van Acker, associate dean of the Guelph plant agriculture department, said that is Canada’s current policy, which could face problems when China begins to try to send product into Canada that contains GM genes not approved here. “Right now, our policy is a threshold of zero for regulated events,” he told MPs. “Will we change that? We argue that the Europeans need to change that, but if China, for example, wanted to export something to Canada that would not yet be regulated in Canada, what would our policy be? Currently, our policy is zero.” access=subscriber section=news,none,none

Don’t sweat over biotech: researcher BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

GUELPH, Ont. —Manish Raizada set out to smash a few myths when he appeared before a panel of MPs last week. Genetic modification is not a big deal, the University of Guelph molecular geneticist told the House of Commons agriculture committee, which is touring the country to study the biotechnology industry. He said moving genes between species has been going on in agriculture for millennia. And for all the public controversy about the potential danger of eating GM food, he said consumers should realize that common life-saving medicines such as insulin are the product of genetic manipulation. “I often get asked, are GMOs good or bad?” he told MPs. “My response is, well, are drugs good or bad? Some drugs are great. If I have a cold, Aspirin and Tylenol is great. Cocaine is not so great.” Raizada said GMO technology has the potential to create useful products but it is not the answer to world hunger. “The balanced view on this would be that so far if you look at crop improvement around the world, GMOs have played a very minor role, and I say that as a molecular geneticist,” he said. “It’s the traditional breeders who have had a much bigger impact on yields.” Raizada used the example of modern corn, which is based on a fusion in Mexico centuries ago of a grass species and an ancient relative of sorghum. These ancient producers had no GMO labs. “To put that into perspective, what the ancient people did was to take a Chevy Nova and made it into a Ferrari,” he said. “What GMOs do is change the cover of the steering wheel. To me, that’s really again how molecular geneticists look at it.” Later in the session, Saskatchewan Conservative MP Randy Hoback said the controversy about GM varieties among farmers is more a political reaction against Monsanto, which holds many of the patents. “In fact, there are some people in the ministry who are telling me that once some of the patents come off on the GMO side for Monsanto, that the people who are opposed to GMOs will all of a sudden not have a problem with it and it’s more of an antiMonsanto trait than anything,” he said. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

New crop soybean sales are happening at a torrid pace, lending strength to the entire oilseed price complex. The U.S. soybean industry had forward sold 5.9 million tonnes of the 2011-12 crop as of Feb. 3. That is almost nine times the 673,000 tonnes contracted at the same time last year and more than 90 times the 63,000 tonnes marketed by Feb. 5, 2009. It took until the first week of July last year to achieve the current level of new crop sales, which is a strong sign that the unprecedented soybean demand will continue. access=subscriber section=markets,none,none

In its Feb. 9 World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said there are record sales through the first five months of the 2010-11 campaign. It expects stronger gains during the second half of the year. Rabobank has issued a more bullish forecast, saying global soybean production this year will be 253 tonnes, less than the USDA’s 256 million tonne estimate. Rabobank also said Chinese demand for soybeans from all sources is likely to exceed the USDA’s forecast of 57 million tonnes. A U.S. soybean analyst who requested anonymity said new crop sales are up because China came into the market earlier and bought more crop than usual. U.S. agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack announced a deal Jan. 25 to sell 2.74 million tonnes of soybeans to China, the largest daily soybean sale in U.S. history. The analyst said the deal is likely for a much larger volume than that. “Trade has rumoured that it could be anywhere up to 11 million tonnes that they did in this letter of agreement, but they don’t have to officially report it until it gets priced out,” said the source. China usually sends a trade delegation to the United States in April, which buys two to three million tonnes of new crop soybeans. If the sales rumours are correct, it’s a strong signal that China will continue its recent pattern of dramatically increasing U.S. soybean purchases. The country bought 41 million tonnes in 2008-09, 50 million tonnes in 2009-10 and 57 million tonnes in 2010-11. The analyst said it feels like sales are on pace for another 15 percent increase, which would mean 65 million tonnes of Chinese demand in 2011-12. “It’s going to be big,” said the source. “I mean, price hasn’t been a barrier at all for them this year buying beans.” The source expects the unusually high demand for new crop will spur more soybean acres this spring.


USDA expands info gathering WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — The U.S. Department of Agriculture will change its grain stocks survey of farmers to ask for old- and new-crop grain in storage instead of only old crop. The stocks report, issued quarterly, is an important gauge of U.S. supply and influences market prices. Last fall, traders said the USDA’s figure for Sept. 1 corn stocks was skewed by an early harvest. The Sept. 1 figure is supposed to be only old crop. A spokesperson for the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) said the new approach would be used for the June and September reports, which coincide with the changeover in crop years. The USDA surveys all commercial warehouses and a randomly selected group of 66,000 growers for its quarterly report of corn, wheat, soybeans, sorghum, barley and oats on hand. access=subscriber section=markets,none,none





Design food policies to help impoverished: IMF Protection measures | If food prices rise, poor families have no alternative but to eat less, says a World Bank official WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — Poor regions that have so far not been hit by rising food prices have been warned to get ready to face them. Food price volatility is here to stay, the World Bank recently cautioned amid growing worries another fullblown food crisis could occur only three years after the last one. In some parts of the world, weatherrelated supply shocks have pushed up prices, and there is a likelihood of substantial long-term increases. Food problems will be tackled this year at Group of 20 meetings in France. The possibility of a full food crisis “is a concern and countries should be getting ready for it,” said Hugh Bredenkamp, deputy director of the International Monetary Fund’s strategy, policy and review department. The IMF advises governments faced with rising food prices to focus social protection measures on the poorest, resist export bans or export taxes that disrupt global food markets and ensure that higher food prices do not translate inadvertently into monetary policy tightening. “The direct impact of food prices on CPI (consumer price index) is a one-time thing, but in itself is not inflation, so countr ies should accommodate … set monetary targets to accommodate the direct impact from price jumps,” said Bredenkamp. “But countries need to be careful not to allow second-round effects, so if food prices go up (they) don’t want that to spill into higher wages or prices of other products.” Asian economies have felt the biggest effects from food inflation, while higher prices are partly to blame for unrest in the Middle East. Unlike during the 2007-08 food crisis, higher prices “have not yet affected all regions of the world,” said Bredenkamp. “One area where the impact so far has been very limited is in sub-Saharan Africa, where local harvests and local supply conditions have been better than average. “That doesn’t mean that their importers won’t face high import bills, but we certainly haven’t yet seen the big inflation effects we saw in 2007-08.” Global food prices are at record levels and the problem is likely to persist in the months to come, according to the United Nations’ Food and Agricultural Organization. “What is triggering this is fairly localized supply shocks that have spilled over onto the global commodity markets but don’t necessarily have any implications for aggregate supply and demand elsewhere,” said Bredenkamp. Catastrophic storms and droughts have slammed the world’s leading agricultural producing countries, including flooding and a massive cyclone in Australia and major winter storms in the United States. The last food price crisis quickly dissipated in 2008 as the world entered an economic recession and demand fell sharply. Now demand is picking up again alongside the global economic recovery driven by large emerging economies. “Our assessment is that the supply access=subscriber section=news,none,none

response over the past few years has been gradually helping meet some of the rising global demand,” said Bredenkamp. “What we’re seeing now is a spike driven by supply shocks and, in a few c a s e s, n o t v e r y h e l p f u l p o l i c y responses. If the shocks were not to recur, the good case scenario may be some leveling off of food prices.” Chris Delgado, strategy and policy adviser in the World’s Bank’s agriculture and rural development department, said a rising middle class in emerging economies was more of a factor this time.

“I don’t think there is any way to really ignore the role of rapid demand increase for consumer goods in the emerging and developing nations,” he said. The poor spend more than 80 percent of their total disposable income on basic foods, he added. If prices rise, poor families have no alternative but to eat less. Mindful of damage done to the poor during the 2007-08 crisis, the IMF and World Bank are warning governments to prepare measures that protect their poorest people. During the last food price crisis, the

What we’re seeing now is a spike driven by supply shocks and, in a few cases, not very helpful policy responses. HUGH BREDENKAMP INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND

World Bank estimated that 870 million people in developing countries were hungry or malnourished. The FAO estimates that number has

increased to 925 million. While it is difficult to ward off the effects of short-term fluctuations in prices, the 2007-08 crisis showed that targeted social programs can protect vulnerable groups without distorting global food markets. Targeted assistance can include subsidies for essential food, kerosene and electricity. “Unfortunately, most of these countries don’t have very good ways to target support and tend to fall back on across-the-board price controls or generalized subsidies which are inefficient and disruptive to markets,” Bredenkamp said.

Recent snow won’t satisfy China’s thirsty wheat crop North still suffers drought | Fear of rising prices

BEIJING, China (Reuters) — Snow across drought stricken parts of northern and central China has brought limited respite from dry conditions threatening winter wheat crops. Premier Wen Jiabao sounded a confident note after the welcome but patchy snowfalls, saying China would be able to produce enough grain and rein in inflation that has been driven by rising food prices.

parts of Henan, Anhui and Jiangsu provinces, some of which have seen months without precipitation. “Because the precipitation will be concentrated in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River, it will have a limited effect on mitigating the drought in northern areas,” said Sun Jun, a senior forecaster for China’s meteorological service. Data and images from the China Meteorological Administration showed that patches of both provinces had snowfalls, but most areas stayed dry. Shandong had been expected to receive additional snowfalls in the next four days, “but as the snowfalls will not be big, their contribution to easing the drought conditions will be of scant help,” the meteorological administration said. China weighs heavily in calculations of global grain demand, and traders believe an erosion of the nation’s self-sufficiency could ripple through the global wheat market, driving up prices. “This year, global supply and demand for grains is tight and the price rises have basically been worldwide, and so stabilizing grain production has become all the more important,” said Li Guoxiang, an agricultural economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. Wen is worried that a fall in grain production could also magnify inflationary pressures, a big headache for policy-makers in Beijing with consumer prices rising at their fastest annual pace in nearly three years. “Maintaining stable growth in this year’s grain production is extremely important for properly managing inflationary expectations, stabilizing the general level of consumer prices and achieving steady and relatively fast growth, as well as social harmony and stability,” said the official report of a central government meeting chaired by Wen. The premier was optimistic about China’s prospects. “We have the confidence and capability to ensure efficient supply of agricultural products, particularly grain, and to keep overall price levels basically stable,” he said. China harvested 115.1 million tonnes in 2010, 95 percent of it winter wheat, which is the crop now at risk. The drought has hit 19 million acres of winter wheat in eight provinces, including Henan and Shandong, which is 42.4 percent of their total winter wheat acreage, the agriculture ministry said. Only four million acres, about a fifth of the drought-hit acreage, was “seriously affected,” it said. U.S. wheat futures are closing in on a 30-month high, buoyed by strong demand and worries about threats to production in China and the United States. Chinese wheat futures rose by the seven percent daily limit on Feb. 9 after a week-long holiday. The rise came despite the latest hike in Chinese interest rates Feb. 8, a policy measure seen to be partly aimed at food inflation, which hit 9.6 percent in the year to December.

BRUSSELS, Belgium (Reuters) — A European Union committee has failed to reach a decision on a proposal to allow minute levels of unapproved genetically modified material in animal feed imports. The proposed 0.1 percent threshold is designed to avoid a repeat of supply disruptions in 2009, when U.S. soybean shipments to Europe were blocked after unapproved GM material was found in cargoes. Opposition to the plan from some EU countries meant the committee could not reach the qualified majority needed under the bloc’s weighted voting rules. Rather than abandon the proposal, EU governments will discuss it at a future meeting, said an EU diplomat on the committee. Another source said the talks could resume as early as Feb. 22. “The European Commission takes note of the fact that some member states have requested a prolongation of the discussion on the issue,” the EU’s executive said in a statement. Adoption will now depend on whether France can be convinced to reverse its opposition because other skeptical countries are unlikely to change their position, sources close to the issue said. EU feed and livestock producers have said the 0.1 percent threshold is needed to safeguard affordable feed supplies for the import-dependent bloc. The EU imported more than 51 million tonnes of animal feed last year worth $20 billion. However, environmental groups have accused the commission of caving in to GM-industry lobbying by proposing to relax the bloc’s zero tolerance policy on unauthorized GM crops. “The postponement of the vote indicates what a controversial issue this is,” said Friends of the Earth food campaigner Mute Schimpf. “The case put forward by the animal feed industry is based on scaremongering and not on reality.” If adopted, the 0.1 threshold would apply only to imports of animal feed and not human food, despite warnings from exporters that it is impractical and costly to segregate global grain supplies. A majority of EU governments was also reported to be in favour of a similar threshold for food imports. The European food and drink industry also prefers legislation covering both food and feed imports. “A partial feed-only technical solution is not based on the reality of trade in the commodity market and overall food manufacturing processes,” industry associations said in a recent letter to the commission. “Making a distinction between use of imported materials for food and feed presents our industries with a challenging and unmanageable situation.… Thus we believe that the technical solution should include food as well as feed.”

ceived payback when Liberals and Conservatives combined to defeat New Democratic Party amendments that would have taken key provisions out of the bill, C-46. The Feb. 7 vote was 189-52. The next step for the bill will be final approval in the House of Commons after third-reading debate and then a trip to the Senate where passage is expected to be speedy. The bill implements a deal negotiated several years ago. New Democrats and the Bloc Québecois will try to drag out the final debate as long as they can. Their chief objections are what they say is Panama’s dismal human rights record and the fact that the country is a tax haven for many Canadian companies and wealthy citizens trying to avoid taxes. During the final three days of debate on the NDP amendments, government MPs said opposition delaying tactics were hurting farmers’ ability to reap the benefits. With the support of many agricultural groups whose members export to the Central American country, the government argued that increased access will be important for some sectors. Witnesses told MPs during committee hearings that the deal would produce annual tariff savings of $150,000 for malting barley, $250,000 for pulses and $750,000 for french fries. Gerald Keddy, parliamentary secretary to trade minister Peter Van Loan, said those gains were good enough reason to support the bill. “A 15 percent tariff (reduction) on $10 million worth of product coming from a hundred different farmgates is a substantial amount of money going back per producer,” he said during earlier debate. “And I think it does make a difference in Canadians understanding what this agreement is all about.” Conservatives argued that 94 percent of Canadian exports will be exempt from tariffs. New Democrat MPs scoffed at the idea that trade to Panama is a priority for farmers. “It clearly will not be a big deal for Canadian agriculture for exports to this very tiny country,” said Bruce Hyder.

Dikes only option for flooding at Maple Creek Engineering solutions explored | Permanent dikes must be maintained in perpetuity by the town to be effective access=subscriber section=news,none,none


A consultant has recommended building dikes on the west side of Maple Creek, Sask., to avoid flood damage similar to what occurred last summer. Ray Pentland, president of Water Resource Consultants Ltd., said the 2010 flood was a one in 3,700 year event. “The actual rainstorm that was the immediate cause of the flood was a moderately big rainstorm … a one in 100 year event,” he said. “It wouldn’t normally have caused that big a flood except the spring runoff last year was moderately heavy so all the reservoirs and sloughs were full of water.” He said dikes are not generally the best form of flood protection available but in this case they are the only option. The town is on a flood plain and a large flood irrigation project lies to the south. “Really, the practical engineering solution for flooding in Maple Creek is to build some dikes along the west side of town to keep the creek from flooding into town,” he said. The dikes would be two metres tall at the highest point and about a kilometre long. Pentland said construction could begin now on temporary dikes in anticipation of potential flooding this year. He also said it’s unlikely the current snow pack could lead to significant flooding. “To get that kind of flood you really need a rainstorm event,” he said. “The one redeeming thing is that April rains can’t be as heavy as June rains. The energy that drives rainstorms just isn’t there.” The Saskatchewan Watershed Authority and Agriculture Canada commissioned Pentland’s report after excess moisture and a June rainstorm combined to flood the town and nearby rural properties and wash out a section of the Trans-Canada Highway. Several other urban centres were flooded during the summer, and agricultural land is still saturated. Premier Brad Wall announced Jan. 31 that a $22 million flood prevention program would be available to help communities and residents prepare for possible spring flooding. Clinton Molde, watershed authority manager in Weyburn, said individual rural residents may be eligible for funding through this program, as is Maple Creek. Pentland’s report also examined the role that several small irrigation reservoirs near Maple Creek played in the flood. The McDougald, Harris and Downie reservoirs are all upstream of Maple Creek, off main channels and supplied by canals running from creeks. The reservoirs, which are operated by Agriculture Canada’s agrienvironmental services branch, were already full when the rainstorm hit. Pentland said the reservoirs were never designed for flood control. They did divert as much water as they

could through the canals but had little impact on the town. Another reservoir downstream, Junction Reservoir, helped take away some of the peak flow.

He said that if the town chooses to construct permanent dikes, it must maintain them forever. Gophers could dig tunnels through them, which would lead to

many breaches. “The dike itself is a perfectly safe structure but they occasionally fail because they aren’t maintained because people forget about them,”

Pentland said. Maple Creek experienced significant flooding in 1998 and 1955. Pentland couldn’t say why dikes had not been built earlier.

Low dollar helps push U.S. beef, pork exports up CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — This year’s U.S. beef exports could be the highest in eight years. A weak U.S. dollar, improving economies and a growing hunger for meat continues to drive sales, particularly in Asia and the Middle East, said Phil Seng, chief executive officer of the U.S. Meat Export Federation. Pork exports in 2011 were forecast to be the highest in three years, he added. Seng expects Asian countries to buy more beef and pork this year, and the Middle East more beef. U.S. beef exports from January to November were up nearly 18 percent from a year earlier, and pork was up 2.5 percent.

Rising exports were the key reasons for the increase in commodity prices. He said beef exports should be up 10 percent this year and pork up five percent. Seng’s projected increases would still put exports shy of the record 2.52 billion pounds of beef exported in 2003 and the 4.65 billion lb. of pork in 2008. “The 10 percent on the beef side could be conservative if the U.S. gains more access to Japan and China.” Japan buys U.S. beef only from cattle younger than 20 months, but Seng is optimistic that age limit could be relaxed this year because of domestic and international pressures. “If we could get some more access

there beyond this 20 months, it would be huge. There is tremendous pent up demand in Japan,” he said. China announced in December that it will lift its seven-year-old ban on U.S. beef, but provided few details. The country may need to import beef and pork to tame food price inflation. U.S. agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack said talks are under way with China about offal products. South Korea should again be an important market for U.S. beef and pork because it needs the imports to offset lost production caused by footand-mouth disease in its livestock herds. “It is desperately in need of protein,” Seng said.

The country has culled 25 percent of its hog herd as its fight to halt spread of the disease. “I think they are starting to get their arms around it, but they are not there yet,” Seng said. Beef shipments to Egypt have resumed after coming to a halt at the outset of anti-government demonstrations. “It looks like Egypt might be getting back to normal. They are starting to clear product again,” he said. Egypt primarily buys beef livers and recently opened its market to all ages of U.S. beef, said Seng. Saudi Arabia continues to be an important buyer of beef and beef variety meats, the latter including livers and internal organs.

Low sunspot activity also responsible | If sunspots don’t increase there may be global cooling BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

El Nina blamed for cold

DENVER, Colo. — This year ’s stormy weather may refresh the childhood memories of those who remember the winters of the 1950s and 1960s, with their deep snowdrifts, cold weather and days off from school. A number of factors are at play this year, including the strongest La Nina system since 1917, climatologist Art Douglas told the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association convention held Feb. 2-5 in Denver. The extra cold water along the equator has brought snowfalls to the United States that have been deeper and further south than normal. It is also responsible for drought in Mexico and Argentina, floods in Australia and the prospect of another cold, wet spring on the Canadian Prairies. La Ninas tend to last 14 to 18 months so it’s probably a year off before sea surface temperatures start to warm up and an El Nino returns in 2012. “We will have a chance of an El Nino next spring,” Douglas said. Climatologists have found that current conditions match the weather of 1955, 1956, 1963, 1971 and 1976. The southeastern United States is having some of its coldest weather on record, while the southwest expects dryness to continue. Lower than average sunspot activity is another culprit. The sun throws extra energy toward the Earth when it is active, but in recent years it has been at its lowest level of activity since the 16th to 18th centuries, a period known as the Little Ice Age. These cycles ordinarily last about 11 years, but this quiet period has lasted 14 years, according to data from NASA. The last period of sunspot activity was in 2001. “If we go back to the sunspot cycle to the 1600s to the present, (in) the last 200 to 250 years we have had strong peaks,” Douglas said. “We really need to keep an eye on what the sunspot peaks do in the next two years. If they don’t rise we will be like the period of the 1600s, which was known as the Little Ice Age, with a tremendous amount of global cooling,” he said. One of the advantages of a snowy winter is that mountain snow packs are also growing, promising good spring runoff. The St. Mary’s River Irrigation District in southern Alberta reported at the end of January that snow pillows in the southwest are average or above average. These could continue to deepen because Environment Canada’s long-range forecast for February and March is for above average precipitation. access=subscriber section=news,none,none






Animal neglect case remanded Court decision by spring | Barn burned to the ground just days after starving hogs discovered BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

The case against two Manitoba hog producers charged with animal neglect won’t be resolved until spring, says the farmers’ lawyer. Martin and Delores Grenier of Notre Dame, Man., were charged last fall with 23 violations of the Manitoba Animal Care Act and six offences under the Criminal Code of Canada. The charges include failing to provide adequate food, water and shelter for pigs on their farm. Michael Radcliffe, the Greniers’ lawyer, appeared Feb. 3 in provincial court in Winnipeg, where the case was remanded for a month. “This could take another two or three months until there is any resolution,” Radcliffe said. “It’s a very difficult case and the crown has just given me particulars.” “There’s a major volume of material that they’ve compiled,” Radcliffe said. “Once I absorb the material, then I’ve got to share it with my client and we have to come up with a strategy and a decision on how to handle this matter…. That all takes a significant length of time when it’s a big case.” Manitoba Agriculture employees and RCMP officers were called to the G r e n i e r s ’ f a r m i n Ju n e a f t e r neighbours notified the authorities. They found hundreds of dead and

starving pigs inside and outside the hog barn. “In rough figures … several hundred animals had to be euthanized,” said Wayne Lees, Manitoba’s chief veterinary officer. The Greniers’ hog barn burned to the ground several days after the dead and dying pigs were discovered.

Agriculture is life


Meat plant closing in Surrey, B.C. Maple Leaf plans to consolidate production to plants in other provinces WINNIPEG (Reuters) — Maple Leaf Foods will close its prepared meat plant in Surrey, B.C., as part of a plan to close some facilities and modernize others to better compete with U.S. rivals. The Surrey plant, which produces ham, sliced meat, sausage and deli products, will gradually wind down operations starting in May and close at the end of September. Maple Leaf said it will consolidate production at its plants in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario after making modest upgrades. The closure will affect 165 employees. Closure costs, including severance, decommissioning and asset write downs, will amount to about $12.1 million before tax, the company said.

The 820 bushel unit is on the horizon Product carts | Increasing the size of carts means fewer refills, more up-time


» The new Seed Master 820 bushel air cart is a twowheeler running 30.5 x 32 radials at the back of the cart and also the rear of the drill. The front of the cart is carried by the drill frame.


BRAND ON — The race to see who builds the biggest air cart continues to heat up as Seed Master works on its 820 bushel prototype this winter. It’s more about field efficiency than bragging rights, said Seed Master representative Ed Mann. “It could very well be that one of our competitors comes out with a bigger cart a week after our first 820 bu. cart rolls out the door,” he said with a shrug. He said manufacturers continue to aim bigger because large acreage farmers know they need to seed more acres per day. It’s straight economics. The new Seed Master cart has three poly tanks at 260 bu. each, plus a 40 bu. tank for inoculants and small seeds such as canola. It adds up to 820 bu., enough to put a lot of hours between fill stops. Each tank has its own individual load cells for weighing product, which is a big factor in determining the next fill spot and deciding if the right amount of product is being applied. “The new cart is built for Auto Zone Control. It has a conveyor for loading. Right now, there’s no plan for an auger.” There are 10 primary runs for seed and 10 primary runs for fertilizer, with total isolation between the two systems. Together, they can supply up to 100 double shoot openers, using two fans. The cart features 10 zone commands along with four-tank overlap control. It uses a Dickey-john rate control IntelliAg display. It has truck deck level loading for bagged product and a conveyor for tank loading. Mann said the two-wheel cart hooks to the rear main frame of the drill and is available only as a towbehind. Large 30.5 x 32 radial bar lug tires at the rear of cart and on the rear of the drill carry most of the weight. Front weight transferred to the drill frame helps prevent skewing on side slopes. “With our drills, it’s pretty easy to upgrade to a tow-behind cart. If you have an older drill, you can easily adapt to the new 820 cart.” It will have a number of standard features, including Ultra Pro Canola Metering and auto-overlap control. Mann said farmers, researchers and manufacturers are beginning to

understand the importance of plant placement within the row. Until now, all attention had been focused on seed depth.

“The Ultra Pro Canola Metering system gives you more uniform plant spacing within each row,” he said.

» The Ultra Pro Canola Metering system and auto-overlap control will be standard equipment when the new cart hits the market.

“This promotes better inter-row competition and stronger plants. “We’ve been using it at three pounds of seed per acre and getting

55 bu. per acre, so we know it works.” For more information, contact Mann at 306-721-3001 extension 118 or visit





Variable rate cart promises fewer fills, better product handling LEFT: These air seeding carts have a new conveyor to quickly carry seed and other dry products safely and rapidly to up to four tanks. | MICHAEL RAINE PHOTO


BRANDON — When Morris Industries introduced its 650-bushel Eight Series XL cart, all variable rate models came standard with hydraulic drive metering rather than ground drive. “All four tanks are equipped for variable rate. The hydraulic motors are controlled by the monitor in the cab,” said Don Henry of Morris at the recent Manitoba Ag Days in Brandon. “The variable rate carts still have the traditional Morris metering units with fluted rollers. And it’s still easy to switch between single shoot, double shoot and triple shoot. “There’s sectional control for each side, but we expect to increase the sectional capability. We’re certainly being questioned on that by our customers.” The XL cart displayed at Brandon was equipped with a conveyor rather than an auger. Henry said the conveyor is becoming more popular with farmers who grow pulses and other delicate crops because they get better germination percentages when seeds are handled gently. Cleanout time is another advantage, Henry said. One complete revolution completely cleans the conveyor. “The conveyor moves 60 bushels per minute. That’s 3,600 bushels per hour.” Both the standard auger and the conveyor are available with a hydraulically operated steering system to locate it directly under the truck hoppers. “You use just one lever to move it in or out and from tank to tank,” Henry said. “Most of the guys filling a cart this size use a trailer. You need an auger that’s easily manoeuvreable like this to go from hopper to hopper without

TWO SMALL CARTS EQUAL ONE BIG LOAD Don Henry says the 650-bushel Morris XL can do a complete fill in 25 minutes. | RON LYSENG PHOTO wasting seeding time. With 60 bu. per minute capacity and hydraulic steering, I’d say you’re looking at 20 to 25 minutes for a complete fill.” Henry said producers have penciled out the numbers on seeding equipment and know that their investment in a big drill and a big tractor is compromised if they don’t have a big cart. It’s just as bad if they have a big cart that takes an hour to fill. Big is fine when the weather’s fine. But when it’s wet, big can be a problem. “That’s a lot of weight to pull in the mud. It’s definitely a consideration, especially at the back where you carry most of the weight. That’s going to be a challenge for all of us this spring. We may find that we need to adapt different tires for better flotation.” Depending on options, an Eight Series XL cart carries a price tag of $130,000 to $170,000.

Farmers who don’t want to buy a giant air cart and drill should consider putting two smaller units together. Australian farmers Gavin and Bill Zell of Collarenebri, New South Wales, seed their 45,000 acre farm with a twinned rig. They use two Flexi-Coil ST820 drills running side by side for a total width of 110 feet. Each drill is independent of the other and is fed by its own Flexi-Coil 1720 air cart. The floating link, which is the only connection between the two units, allows the Zells to hook or unhook in 15 minutes. Two smaller carts running 50 feet apart create less compaction and flotation problems in muddy fields than a single big cart. The setup also shortens the distance from metering unit to opener. They pull the seed unit with an Australian made, 600 horsepower Baldwin tractor. Only 23 of the tractors were produced in 1982. | BILL ZELL PHOTO





Holding back nature, one degree at a time ENERGY FIELD

TYPES OF HEAT LOSS Radiant heat loss Radiant heat is any energy a heat source emits outward. Many objects emit radiant heat, from your own body to cooking surfaces. Windows are a typical source of radiant heat loss, though triple glazing, reflective coatings and gases such as argon or krypton can help slow heat transfer.



eat is always on the move. Whether it is the teapot going cold or the warmth from our home’s natural and artificial heating systems, heat tries to migrate to colder areas. Several types of heat transfer affect us: radiant, convection, conduction and phase change. Radiant heat transfer is one that we know well. The sun, although 150 million kilometres away, emits electromagnetic waves that reach us even in the cold north and make us feel warmer. Living things also radiate heat. A barn with livestock is much warmer than the temperature outside, while putting all the children in one bed in cold houses of the past, was much warmer than individual slumber. Convection refers to heat moving within air or water caused by the movement of molecules. Air and water molecules expand and become lighter, which is why warm air and warm water rise and cool air and cool water fall. This explains why the temperature at the ceiling is often warmer than at the floor in a building heated with forced air, why it’s colder below a window than above and why low areas in the field may be more prone to early frosts. Conduction is the heat transfer that

Convection Heat energy transferred between a surface and moving air or fluid at different temperatures is known as convection. Heating causes a density change in the air, causing it to rise and be replaced by cooler air that also will heat and rise.

takes place molecule to molecule. It requires objects to touch each other, such as a frying pan heating up on an electric stove. Phase change is when material changes from one phase to another.

Evaporation is the most common example of phase change in our environment, when water changes from a liquid to a gas. Significant absorption of energy occurs at the point of change. We will use this type of heat transfer

Phase change A phase change is the transition from one state of matter to another as a result of a change in an external condition, such as temperature or pressure. For example, a liquid may become gas upon heating to the boiling point, resulting in an abrupt change in volume.

Conduction If different parts of a solid are at different temperatures, energy is transferred from more energetic (warmer) to less energetic (cooler) molecules when neighbouring molecules collide until everything is at the same temperature. This thermal transfer process is called conduction.

to our advantage in the future with new drywall materials that absorb daytime heat with invisible internal phase change and release it in the evening when the temperature drops. Understanding phase change also explains why swimming pools use so much energy. Water cools as the surface water evaporates, requiring the water to be heated again. This heating can often take as much energy as heating the nearby residence for the entire winter. The loss of energy to phase change in a swimming pool is the greatest argument for the use of a thermal pool cover in summer. Convection is probably the type of heat transfer that is of greatest concern when it comes to our homes. No insulation was installed in the days when stud walls were first built. It was just boards on the inside and outside and air in between. Because warm air rises and cool air falls, the wall would be warmed by sources inside the house such as the fireplace, stove and radiators. The warm wall would then warm the air in the stud cavity, which would rise and contact the outer wall of the cavity. The air would then cool and drop, creating a continuous circular current. The convection currents would continually drain energy from the room, prompting the development of between-the-stud insulation. It was initially wood chips and later fibreglass, cellulose fillings, mineral fibre and most recently, sprayed foam. Convection loss also refers to heat loss that takes place when warm air leaves buildings through gaps, holes and electrical outlets, even with the presence of insulation. Air and vapour barriers such a tarred paper, polyethylene, foil, door and window gaskets and sealed electrical pans were developed to pre-

vent these convection losses. Convection takes place in window cavities, which is why newer windows have a smaller space between panes than what was previously used. The narrow space mitigates against easy convection currents, thereby reducing heat loss. Conduction heat transfer takes place when materials touch, which is why heat is lost when warm drywall touches a stud and the stud touches the siding. A thermographic photo shows just how dramatic the loss can be through a stud wall compared to the insulated cavity between the studs. Prevention of such thermal bridging is why many builders install sheet insulation, most often foam sheets, on the inside or outside of stud walls. It’s also why structurally insulated panels or insulated concrete forms rely on continuous insulation to prevent heat loss. Radiant heat loss has not been studied well in terms of building technology. Radiant barriers such as aluminum foil can prevent radiant heat loss or gain. Foil has its proponents for wall use, but its most typical application is on the underside of roof rafters to reflect heat back to the roof and away from the attic space. Heat is also lost through radiant energy, particularly through windows. New window technologies, such as low-emissivity or low-e coatings are designed to prevent radiant heat loss. Heat transfer or loss is not a simple matter influenced by just one factor. Building technologies must reflect that complexity to provide effective energy saving solutions, holding back nature one degree at a time.

Hoist has big lift, small footprint BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

TULARE, Calf. — Lifting pallets of seed, heavy parts or big tools such as welder generators has become easier thanks to Clayton Isemann. The California inventor created a method of using a pick-up truck’s weight to provide the anchor for a lifting arm that can hoist up to 2,000 pounds from the ground to a truck bed in 90 seconds. The lift folds forward when not in use. Two hydraulic rams powered by a pump,which is driven by a 12 volt electric motor, swing the inverted-U shaped lifting arm on a pivot point ahead of the truck’s rear axle. A Mile Marker cable winch operated at a 249:1 ratio through a set of planetary gears hoists the load off the box deck and onto the ground or other platform, such as an air seeder cart. “No crane, no forklift. Just you and your truck and you can safely get some pretty heavy things into and out of the box,” said Isemann. The winch relies on a 5/16 inch cable with a working rating of 9,000 lb. The design transfers the load from the lift to the frame of the truck and distributes it ahead of the rear wheels, said Isemann. “There is no box distortion or frame twisting. We’ve got a good, stable design,” he said of the 1,000, 2,000 and 3,000 lb. units. The company has the lifts for Ford, Dodge, GM and Toyota trucks with box beds from 6.5 to 8 feet. There is also a version for John Deere ProGator and Kubota utility vehicles. “You can still get a four foot pallet or sheet of plywood between the arms and hardware. You hardly notice the difference to the box when it is folded forward,” he said. A cabled remote is standard and a heavy duty and wireless control is available. The 350 lb. unit can be installed in four hours without modifying a truck’s box other than drilling holes. The lift is compatible with fifth wheel and box ball hitches. The 3,000 lb. lift is wider and taller and sits on the company’s own flatbed service body. Isemann brought his Ezy-Lift units to the World Ag Expo in Tulare, California, along with 1,500 other agricultural exhibitors. It was recognized as one the top 10 new products at the big farm show. The 2,000 pound truck box Ezy-Lift sells for $6,000. For more information, contact Clayton Isemann at 760-749-6596 or visit

Optica Trio: a new herbicide for Group 2 resistant pests BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

There’s a new tool in town in the fight against broadleaf weeds, like this kochia plant. |


A new broadleaf herbicide has been approved for control of some of Western Canada’s peskiest of cereal crop pests. Broadleaf control in cereals was once a simple matter of applying a Group 2 herbicide in the four to six leaf stage and waiting for harvest. A few weeds developed resistance

For the



to Group 2, while others that were a minor problem in tillage systems have become major headaches under zero till. Ken Sapsford of the University of Saskatchewan’s Crop Development Centre is welcoming a new combination of Group 4 herbicides to look after some of these aggressive yield robbers. “While it isn’t a new mode of action, it is still good when we get a new tool that farmers can use,” he said about UAP’s new combination of MCPA, dichlorprop-P and mecoprop-P. Producers had previously been able to combine the venerable Group 4 chemicals that comprise Optica Trio on their own, but UAP has delivered them in one container and in an amine formula that appears to improve the efficacy. Brodie Blair of UAP said Agriculture Canada and U of S researchers encouraged his company to develop and register the herbicide. “They really expressed a desire to have this for prairie farmers,” he said. “It’s not a co-pack. This is a premeasured blend. And we’ve registered it for tank mixing with clodinafops, Horizon or Ladder. And with Everest (flucarbazone) as well.” These mixes are designed to control a greater spectrum of broadleaf weeds as well as wild oats and green foxtail. Yellow foxtail control is an added benefit from mixing with clodinafops. Sapsford said the combination product showed that it can control larger, later stage weeds as well as the usual post-emergent small-stage pests. “That could be useful with all the wet conditions that are potentially out there this spring.” H e s a i d t h e n e w h e r b i c i d e’s strength remains with the Group 2 resistant kochia and cleavers. “Eighty-five to 90 percent of kochia in Western Canada and about 40 percent of the cleavers in Alberta are Group 2 resistant. We need some more tools and this looks like one,” Sapsford said. Blair said Optica Trio doesn’t solve all weeds problems in cereals. It particularly comes up shy when dealing with narrow-leaved hawk’s beard and hemp nettle. For that, UAP is working on a future registration of a thifensulfuron and tribenuron co-pack product.

NEVER LOOK BACK! Step into the productivity of a new Guardian™ front boom sprayer from New Holland and you won’t turn back. With the boom in front, you have a complete unobstructed view of every nozzle. This outstanding visibility means you can run the boom closer to the ground to control drift. Spray is delivered into the crop before the first tires go over it, eliminating the potential for dust to neutralize the spray. Start achieving a new level of spraying freedom and productivity. THE HIGHEST HORSEPOWER AVAILABLE – UP TO 365 HP THE LARGEST TANK SIZES - UP TO 1,600 GALLONS THE HIGHEST CROP CLEARANCE - SIX FEET THE TIGHTEST TURNING - 15-FOOT TURNING RADIUS THE SMOOTHEST SUSPENSION - 20 INCHES OF TRAVEL ©2010 CNH America LLC.

B.C. waste plant opponents express water, air concerns SRMs not allowed | Spa Hills says the aerobic system produces no methane BY SHANNON MONEO FREELANCE WRITER

VICTORIA — Opponents of a new slaughterhouse waste composting facility in British Columbia’s interior says the operation, which takes only non-specified risk material, threatens the environment and residents. In mid-January, the Mitchell family, owners of Spa Hills Farm, opened the compost operation between Falkland and Salmon Arm. The facility will accept 1,300 tonnes of non-specified risk material a year. Under a five-year contract, Spa Hills will charge Riverside Meats in Salmon Arm, Kam Lake View Meats in Kamloops and Valley Wide Meats in Enderby eight cents per pound to dispose of their waste, with free pickup, said Jake Mitchell. John Ressman, who has lived for 21 years on a 10-acre property near the 140-acre Spa Hills Farm, said a faciliaccess=subscriber section=livestock,news,none

ty that makes compost out of slaughterhouse waste should operate in an isolated area. “We object to where the facility is located. It’s in a semi-residential area. Why put it in somebody’s backyard? There’s lots of crown land available,” Ressman said. “We are the guinea pigs, sitting here.” Composting takes place inside a large, concrete-floored building that sits in the centre of the 140 acre property, Mitchell said. Six aeration bins, each one with time and temperature monitoring systems, operate aerobically, which means available oxygen produces a faster, less smelly breakdown than anaerobic composting. Slaughterhouse waste is put into a bin and blended with straw, wood waste and chicken manure from the Mitchells’ farm. This mixture sits in a bin for four weeks and then transferred to another bin for two weeks. The final product is what’s called Class A compost, which Spa Hills, also a 50,000-bird broiler operation, will use as a chemical-free fertilizer on its grain fields. Ressman doubts that safe compost can be created in six weeks. “It’s totally unfounded,” he said. “The system being used is completely unproved in B.C. and Canada.” Karen Dittloff, who lives an hour from the farm in Grindrod, also wonders if Class A compost can be made in 42 days. Her community once kept a slaughterhouse waste facility out of its borders. Mitchell said Spa Hills hired a professional agrologist to design the facility and assist with startup and regulatory requirements. He said he is convinced the compost will be ready in six weeks. Dittloff would still like the environment ministry to test the samples for E. coli, salmonella and other pathogens that could end up in the water supply. Of particular concern are prions, a protein particle that is believed to be the cause of brain diseases such as BSE, scrapie and Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease. Prions are not visible microscopically, contain no nucleic acid and are highly resistant to destruction. Spa Hills is located above the Salmon River, which empties into Shuswap Lake. Ressman said this is causing concern that water, including wells, could be harmed. “There are deep wells that are susceptible to ground water contamination,” he said. Dittloff is also concerned that slaughterhouses could send SRMs to Spa Hills by accident. Mitchell said SRMs are dyed purple or blue and if he ever spotted them, he would immediately send them back to the slaughterhouse.

We object to where the facility is located. It’s in a semiresidential area. Why put it in somebody’s backyard? JOHN RESSMAN AREA RESIDENT

“We’re not allowed to take it,” he said. If SRMs ever managed to slip through, he added, he would be questioning the role of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, which monitors their handling. Mitchell said environment ministry staff are welcome anytime at Spa Hills. The ministry has visited six times and was present at the first compost mix. Ressman is also worried Spa Hills’ compost will stink up the neighbourhood. “I don’t want to sit here and smell the stench.” However, Mitchell said material has been mixed since mid-January and no odours have been produced. Beyond foul smells, Dittloff said the composting process could cause health risks for residents through emissions of gases such as carbon dioxide, ammonia and methane. Mitchell said composting will produce carbon dioxide that has been derived from the air through the animal feed and not from fossil fuel. The carbon dioxide from composting is less than what would be produced if the material was burned in Alberta, and aerobic composting produces no methane, he said. Ressman remains unconvinced. “This whole thing stinks,” he said. The system is designed and required to comply with the Organic Matter Recycling Regulation (OMRR), which the provincial environment minister administers under the Environmental Management Act. The OMRR requires an environmental impact assessment only if production exceeds 20,000 tonnes per year. Spa Hills is permitted to process 4,000 tonnes per year, so an assessment wasn’t required. However, an environmental impact assessment was required in 2009 under the Canada-British Columbia Specified Risk Material Management Program. It found that the project would have a low potential for environmental impact when the recommended mitigation steps were implemented. The Investment Agriculture Foundation of B.C., an industry-led, nonprofit group, provided $190,000 for the $485,000 project. Mitchell said his family paid for the remainder of the costs.

U.S. continues to weigh traceability pros and cons Export markets suffer | While some ranchers see traceability as a selling tool, many fear being held responsible for problems in the food chain BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

DENVER, Colo. — The debate over traceability continues to rage in the United States. Ranchers support a voluntary system while exporters say selling beef of unknown origins could ultimately bring lower prices. The lack of traceability is a particular stumbling block for negotiators attempting to resume trade with China. It is at the top of the list of the 22 conditions that the U.S. needs to meet, said Mark Gustafson, international vice-president for JBS. “That is a non starter for us to have any hope with China,” he told an international markets committee that met during the recent National Cattlemen’s Beef Association annual convention in Denver. “More and more countries are not seeing traceability as a non-tariff barrier. They think it is something that we do. They can’t believe it when we say traceability is a problem.” Animals designated for premium programs already carry identification, such as non-hormone treated cattle destined for Europe and age and source verified cattle destined for Japan. However, most animals do not. Gustafson said the lack of traceability is America’s Achilles heel that other countries can use as a competitive advantage. The U.S. sells 300,000 tonnes less beef per year to Japan since the BSE trade ban because of age restrictions and other food safety issues. The country needs to find new markets for that beef and traceability may be one answer. “Exports would have greater potential and we need it to grow export markets and keep the ones we’ve had,” he said. However, Missouri rancher Mike John said many cow-calf producers

are suspicious of traceability because they might be held responsible if something goes wrong later up the food chain. As well, many are confused about what traceability means. John is a director of an animal identification company but supports a voluntary program. He said a good system requires third party verification and assurances of greater export potential or premiums. “Most producers I know would participate if they feel they could get a return on their investment.” Mike Engler, president of Cactus Feedyards with 10 locations in Texas and Kansas, saw traceability as a good commercial tool. The company has developed its own system to track performance in groups or document drug use and withdrawal times. It also feeds Mexican cattle, which must be fully identified because of country-of-origin labelling laws. Those cattle must be shipped on separate days to specific plants where foreign animals are handled. “We know we will be held responsible for the cattle we deliver to the packing plant,” Engler said. “For

some reason the rest of the industry is very suspicious.” He said he knows plenty about the cattle once they arrive at the yards, but he rarely knows their earlier history. A number of farms could be represented in a single pen. Performance information could be returned to the farms and improvements made if they were fully identified. Traceability may at some point have to rely on DNA databases. Gustafson said maintaining DNA archives is not difficult for large companies such as JBS and would have an added advantage during food recalls because they could target specific lots of meat rather than order large wholesale recalls. As for readability, Engler prefers using electronic ear tags at his feed yard, but Gustafson said JBS can read whatever system is used. However, standards are needed so that tags can be read easily on the farm, auction or packing plant. Traceability is also a critical component for animal disease control so that infections are found and quickly eliminated. Meat consultant Graeme Goodsir from Pennsylvania said Great Britain successfully used its system to trace animals in its BSE and foot-andmouth disease outbreaks. “If we ever have the misfortune of an outbreak like that, we will be in terrible trouble,” he said. The U.S. Department of Agriculture backed away from a mandatory, national system last February and now promotes a voluntary program with the states and tribal councils handling most of the work.

Superworm fears real: vets Chemical resistance | Treatment products administered at the wrong time allow some parasites to survive and produce resistant offspring BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Producers should treat for parasites six weeks into the grazing season. | FILE PHOTO

DENVER, Colo. — Repeated use of the same dewormers in livestock is creating resistance to common chemical treatments. “We are potentially creating superworms,” said Jerry Woodruff, a veterinarian and parasite specialist with Boehringer Ingelheim. Two percent of the parasites could survive, multiply and spread resistance even if two dewormers are

used in one treatment, he told a media session at the recent National Cattlemen’s Beef Association convention in Denver. “They have the genetics to resist removal by both chemicals, and those are the ones that are surviving and producing the offspring for the livestock grazing a pasture to pick up, ” he said.

priate treatments, he added. A fecal egg count should be done to assess the seriousness of the problem. Treatment may not be necessary if the count is low. Producers should also conduct a second test, after eggs have hatched, to identify the larvae and ensure the right treatment is used. “We need to have more logical thought processes on our deworming program on grazing calves,” Woodruff said. Generic products for internal and external use may have worsened the problem because they are cheap enough for multiple treatments. They may also be administered at the wrong time. Producers should check and treat for parasites six weeks into the grazing season, but often they treat livestock earlier because it is more convenient. The earlier treatment may not get the worms at the most significant stage. Eggs die off in warm, dry weather, which is why semi-arid regions have fewer problems. However, they can survive a cold winter. The primary parasites are gastrointestinal worms, including the ostertagia, also called brown stomach worm, cooperia, or small intestinal worm, and nematodirus helvetianus, the thread-necked or thinnecked worm. An Alberta Agriculture survey found cattle on pasture south of Calgary harbour slightly more ostertagia, while cooperia is the most common type in central and northern Alberta. Adult worms live and reproduce in the animal’s gastrointestinal tract, where they lay eggs that are passed out in the manure. T h e s e hat c h i nt o l a r va e t hat migrate up blades of grass and are consumed by cattle as they graze. The larvae continue their maturation in the gut, thus completing the life cycle. Brown stomach worms are the most economically significant and widespread parasite. They suck nutrients from the inside of the abomasum in the adult stage, while the larval stage hibernates in the mucosa of the abomasum. “As near as we know, it will stay in hiding there until there is some signal, and we think that is from the animal physiology … that it knows it will survive in Calgary in June,” Woodruff said. The lining of the stomach is normally smooth but looks like cobblestones when larvae are present. Stomach glands are important for secreting digestive juices, but the worms make this more difficult. Three chemical classes are available for grazing animals: • Group 1, the benzimidazoles; • Group 2, the imidazothiazoles (levamisole) and hydropyrimidines (pyrantel/ morantel); • Group 3, the macrocyclic lactones (avermectins). No new products are on the horizon.





Do your part to minimize calving difficulties, deaths ANIMAL HEALTH

body condition score of 2.5 to three on a five point scale. Provide assistance when needed



etting calves off to a good start is vital if we want to have a calf to wean in the fall. Research shows that 70 percent of calf mortalities occur within the first 96 hours of life. Almost two-thirds of these losses are directly attributable to dystocia, or calving difficulties. Too much time spent in the birth canal can kill a calf because of a lack of oxygen. However, calving problems also cause indirect losses by increasing the susceptibility of surviving calves to infectious disease. Calves that have difficult births are often slower to get up and start sucking, which results in poor colostrum intake and lower immunity. Those that survive dystocia are 2.4 times more likely to become sick during the first 45 days of life. Calving difficulties may be the root cause of many outbreaks of infectious diseases encountered in cowcalf herds. We’ve made great strides in reducing calving difficulties over the last 20 years, but it continues to be a priority because they are such an important risk factor for calf mortality. There are steps producers can take to prevent dystocia :

Early assistance in the calving process affects a dam’s subsequent reproductive capacity. It can also result in a nine percent increase in the number of animals cycling at the onset of the breeding season and a 14 percent increase in the fall pregnancy rate. As well, early assistance will greatly increase the chance of producing a live calf if an animal does have dystocia. Good facilities such as maternity pens and a calving squeeze makes a

huge difference in producers’ ability to provide assistance. Heifers tend to take a little longer to give birth than cows. As a result, it is important to understand the normal birth process when providing assistance. Guidelines on when to provide assistance include: • if a cow has been straining for 40 minutes and no progress has been made; • if 90 minutes have elapsed since the first water bag appeared and no progress has been made; • if the legs emerge with the surface of the hoofs pointing up, which probably means a backward calving;

• if only the head or tail emerges; • if cow at calving time demonstrates four to five hours of anxiety and walking with the tail extended, which means it should be examined to ensure that a breech presentation has not occurred. Producers should calve heifers separately two to three weeks before the mature cow herd to allow for concentrated surveillance of the high risk group for dystocias. It also allows heifers to calve in a clean calving area with no pathogen buildup. As well, it provides a few extra weeks for heifers to recover and start cycling so that they are not behind in subsequent years.

Calves that have difficult births may be slow sucking, which results in low colostrum intake. | FILE PHOTO John Campbell is head of Large Animal Clinical Sciences at the University of Saskatchewan’s Western College of Veterinary Medicine.


Select bulls for low birth weights Birth weight is the most important factor contributing to dystocia. It is a function of genetic and environmental factors and is moderately heritable. Producers should select a bull with a low birth weight or a low expected progeny difference for birth weight when breeding heifers. Adequate nutrition for replacement heifers The risk of dystocia is greatest in replacement heifers. As a result, heifers should reach 85 percent of their mature weight at calving time. This often means feeding heifers separately from cows during winter. Heifers have increased nutritional demands because they are still growing and have difficulty competing against mature cows for feed. Avoid overconditioning heifers so that they don’t lay down excessive fat inside their pelvic canal. Adequate nutrition for cows Thin cows often have trouble calving because their energy reserves are low. Calves from cows in poor condition often don’t perform as well. Also, mismothering is more common in cows that are thin at calving. Thin cows will be slower to start cycling after calving and less likely to get pregnant. Aim to have cows calving with a

Tests show biodiesel byproduct benefits pigs Glycerin could provide energy | The pig feed additive could become more economical as the biodiesel sector grows BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

LeAnn Johnston of Amlan International of Chicago said research suggests glycerin could be a valuable energy source for pig rations. | ED WHITE PHOTO

Glycerin might not sound yummy, but both young and adult pigs appear to like the stuff. That means hog producers might be able to use a growing resource on the Prairies, because more biodiesel production means more glycerin production. “The research on (glycerin) has shown that pigs can perform equal to or better than pigs on control diets,” said LeAnn Johnston of Amlan International of Chicago. Johnston gave producers at the Manitoba Swine Seminar a survey of research into the impact of glycerin in pig diets, and most makes glycerol appear to be a worthwhile feed ingredient for nursery and feeder pigs. Pigs did at least as well as pigs on non-glycerin diets and their meat quality did not suffer.

Canadian beef diets can contain glycerin, but it has not been approved for swine diets, Johnston said. If it is approved, farmers need to be careful about a number of factors: • methanol content — methanol in small amounts can be toxic to livestock and is present in glycerin in variable amounts; • energy content — depending on water content and other variables, the energy contained by glycerin varies; • flowability — at above six percent content, glycerin can begin to make mash diets sticky and give feed handling systems problems; • salt content — sodium chloride levels in glycerin are variable, so producers must measure and balance the salt in the glycerin with that of the rest of the feed. While glycerin is not approved for pig diets, Johnston said it will probably become an attractive ingredient



because it is becoming widely available, will likely be inexpensive, and it works. With 60 percent of the cost of pig diets coming from energy components, cheap glycerin could find a place. Johnston said she has heard that glycerol priced at 75 percent of the cost of corn would be economic. Canada is expected to be soon producing 480 million litres per year of biodiesel and for ever y litre of biodiesel, 79 grams of glycerin is produced. access=subscriber section=news,livestock,none

Bison owners’ request for hearings rejected BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

A Saskatchewan bison farm is asking the court to force the provincial agricultural operations review board to hear its complaint about a nearby sheep operation. RJ Game Farm, which has about 1,400 bison near Fairlight, Sask., says Teresa and Joanna Walker’s 300 sheep pose a threat of malignant catarrhal fever. Sheep are carriers of the viral disease that is fatal in bison. The Walkers in November bought land about one kilometre from RJ Game Farm, where they intend to raise sheep. Teresa Walker has said she doesn’t plan to run weaned sheep, which present the most risk, near the bison. But Robert and Rebecca Johnson, who operate RJ Game Farm with her parents Ryan and Roberta Clark, asked the review board to hear their case and consider whether this is a normally accepted agricultural practice and what action could be taken. The two parties tried mediation in December, but that failed. At the same time, the review board was grappling with whether it could hear

the matter. In a Dec. 10, 2010, letter to the review board, Timothy Stodalka, the lawyer representing RJ Game Farm, urged a quick decision. “We respectfully submit that it would be an error to interpret s. 13(2) of the Agricultural Operations Act as requiring that our client wait till the bison start dying from malignant catarrhal fever when the expert evidence we have provided to you indicates that it is not a question of if our client’s bison will die from MCF but it is simply a matter of when they start dying,” said the letter. That section of the act states that a “person who is aggrieved by a disturbance arising from an agricultural operation” can ask the board to determine if that disturbance is a result of a normally accepted practice and, if not, what action could be taken. But a month later the board said the game farm did not have standing because the matter did not meet the board’s mandate. A court case is scheduled for March 3. Stodalka is expected to ask a judge to quash the agricultural review board’s decision and order it to hold hearings. access=subscriber section=news,livestock,none





Ontario MP tables bill to let farmers opt out of CWB Seeking balance | Private member’s bill draws support from Conservatives, denounced by Liberals as attempt to ‘kneecap the CWB’ BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

In April, assuming an election has not been called, MPs will debate a bill that would allow farmers to opt out of the Canadian Wheat Board single desk. Last week, rural Ontario MP Bruce Stanton tabled a private member’s bill that would give prairie farmers the right to opt out of the pool for a minimum of two years by giving notice between Jan. 1 and March 31. Bill C-619 would allow an optedout farmer to opt back in by giving a year’s notice.

In a Feb. 11 interview, Stanton said it balances the right of western farmers to sell their wheat and barley to whomever they want, as Ontario farmers can do, while giving the CWB the stability of knowing how many farmers will be delivering to the pool in any given year. “I think this is a balanced bill and it is something I as a member and we as a government believe in,” he said. Private member’s bills seldom become law. Stanton said legal advisers have told him his proposed changes would not trigger the CWB Act requirement for a farmer vote to be held if changes are

proposed to the board mandate. Stanton said his bill has been drawn for its first hour of debate in April with the second and last hour before a vote in June or autumn. It drew support from Saskatchewan Conservative MPs and wheat board critics David Anderson and Randy Hoback, but Liberal reaction was fierce “This is another attempt to kneecap the CWB,” said deputy Liberal leader Ralph Goodale, who as Canadian Wheat Board minister in 1997 shepherded the modern CWB Act through the House. “Either you have a single desk system or you don’t.


There’s no halfway house.” He said director elections show solid majority support among farmers for the board single desk and he cautioned that any attempt to change its mandate without a producer plebiscite would be wrong. Hoback, a former president of the

Western Canadian Grain Growers Association said Stanton is a good candidate to sponsor the bill even though he is not from the Prairies. “The reality is here’s an MP who is from a riding with farmers who have seen how an open market can function and the marketing agency survive since the Ontario Wheat Board lost its monopoly,” he said. “He can explain that to farmers in Western Canada who might be a little afraid of how change would work. As well, the Ontario MP is higher on the priority list for private member’s bills so it will come for debate than if a western MP had moved a bill. access=subscriber section=news,none,none


Growing number of farm animals spawn new diseases Rising world demand for meat, milk and eggs is fueling intensification of livestock production HONG KONG (Reuters) — A growing number of livestock are fuelling new animal epidemics worldwide and posing more severe problems in developing countries as it threatens their food security, according to a new report. Epidemics in recent years, such as SARS and the H1N1 swine flu, are estimated to have caused billions of dollars in economic costs. Some 700 million people keep farm animals in developing countries and these animals generate up to 40 percent of household income, the report by the International Livestock Research Institute said. “Wealthy countries are effectively dealing with livestock diseases, but in Africa and Asia, the capacity of veterinary services to track and control outbreaks is lagging dangerously behind livestock intensification,” John McDermott and Delia Grace at the Nairobi-based institute said in a statement on the report. “This lack of capacity is particularly dangerous because many poor people in the world still rely on farm animals to feed their families, while rising demand for meat, milk and eggs among urban consumers in the developing world is fueling a rapid intensification of livestock production.” Seventy-five percent of emerging infectious diseases originate in animals, they added. Of these, 61 percent are transmissible between animals and humans. “A new disease emerges every four months; many are trivial but HIV, SARS and avian influenza illustrate the huge potential impacts,” McDermott and Grace wrote in the report. Epidemics like SARS in 2003, sporadic outbreaks of the H5N1 avian flu since 1997 and the H1N1 swine flu pandemic of 2009 racked up enormous economic costs around the world. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

Prepare for next downturn | Finance experts say with prices rebounding, its time to court bankers BY ED WHITE

Cdn. exchanges in $Cdn. U.S. exchanges in $U.S.


Many hog farmers are no longer scared of their bankers, now that agricultural commodity prices have recovered and profits are flowing. But this is the time to prepare for the next downturn, says a farm finance expert, because if farmers had a crappy lender in the last downturn, they will probably be a crappy lender in the next downturn. “We’ve … seen some banks and bankers that haven’t been as supportive to swine producers as we would like,” Peter Manness of Meyers Norris Penny told the recent Manitoba Swine Seminar. “We need to start thinking about the next downturn and think about who we want to be with. What’s the bank, the bank manager, that we want to be with.” Manness and two other farm finance experts were part of a panel looking at the financial after-effects of the devastating downturn, and all three focused on how farmers can better prepare for future downturns. Hog production is a cyclical business, and while downturns like the recent one and the 1998-99 slump are rare, there is no question months of losses will naturally recur at the end of future cycles. Ma n n e s s s a i d s o m e l e n d e r s understand and want to be involved with financing hog production. They are good business partners for pig farmers. “Start aligning yourself in the long term,” said Manness. “There are bankers out there that understand the industry better than others.” He said now is a good time to get to know a few lenders to see who is best to deal with and who would be best for darker days.

As the industry turns (down), we can go back to them.” Bill Alford of the Hams marketing agency said lenders will probably be cautious about the hog industry for a while. “We have to have demonstrated profits for a while and that confidence will flow back to lenders.” Andrew DeRuyck, a mediator and farm management expert with Right Choice Management Consulting, said farmers should make relationships with committed hog industry financers rather than ones who jump in when prices and profits are high.

“What the industry needs is a longterm player in the industry that really wants to be there,” said DeRuyck. Hutterite hog industry leader James Hofer asked DeRuyck if he had formulated a specific design for a hog farming operation that would be structurally soundest in a future financial downturn.

DeRuyck did not offer an optimal structure for a farm, but provided farmers with a structure that at least allows a farmer to survive an unexpectedly brutal downturn or crisis: own a half section on which the house sits, and don’t use it as collateral. “If you have a half section and you don’t have anybody who has security on it, you’re going to have a place to live,” DeRuyck said. “It isn’t going to be taken away from you…. As a young producer, one of my main goals is to get a half section paid off and in my name and have a nice home on it. “If the market in whatever industry I’m in totally tanks and everything turns against me, I know that’s where I’m going to end up anyway.”

High crop prices push Syngenta input sales up access=subscriber section=ag_finance,none,none

ZURICH, Switzerland (Reuters) — Syngenta is set to benefit from soaring food prices as farmers buy more crop inputs from the world’s largest agrochemical company. The company recently posted a forecast-beating set of 2010 figures on the back of strong demand in emerging markets. “At the current commodity prices, farmers have plenty of opportunity to invest heavily in the crop inputs,” said chief executive officer Mike Mack “It is a good place for 2011.” Spiralling wheat, corn and soybean prices should encourage farmers to buy more inputs as they seek

to boost yields. Mack said the outlook for 2011 is bright because global growth expectations are higher than for 2010, suggesting a rising demand for grain. “As economic growth goes up, people have more means to invest in bigger diets, more meat, more cheese, and this drives demand for grain,” he said. Prices for major grains and oilseeds have risen to the highest levels in 2 1/2 years on supply problems linked to bad weather around the world and strong demand as major importers ramped up purchases to quell domestic unrest over food price inflation.

Net profit at Syngenta for 2010 slipped one percent to $1.4 billion. The company is now integrating its crop protection and seed businesses to gain total annualized cost savings of $650 million in 2015. It is also targeting a gross profit margin of 22 to 24 percent by 2015. Syngenta, which also makes genetically modified seeds, posted an earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization margin of 21.5 percent in 2010. The company said it was aiming to gain an average of 0.5 percent market share annually across its combined business over the next five

years, but Mack said he hoped to beat that target. Syngenta’s positive outlook comes after Dow Chemical saw strong appetite for its fungicides, pesticides and GM seeds from Latin America in the fourth quarter, while Monsanto said last month early orders for spring planting of corn and soybean seeds were up. Syngenta chief financial officer John Ramsay said the pricing environment was likely to be stable this year and the company was looking at price hikes in selected markets after facing pricing pressure last year.

Investors sought for biopesticide plant

Agrium results top expectations

Mustard processing | The $2 million plant will produce 12,000 tonnes of biopesticide annually

TORONTO (Reuters) — Agrium Inc. reported a 90 percent rise in fourth quarter gross profit as high grain prices fuel demand for fertilizers, seeds and other inputs. The company also expects strong results this year. North American fertilizer inventories are tight and will likely remain so through the spring planting season. “Agrium’s results were better than expected,” said Gleacher and Co. analyst Edlain Rodriguez. R e s u l t s f ro m t h e c o m p a n y ’s wholesale fertilizer segment were largely in line with expectations, but the results from the retail business well exceeded market expectations, he added. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently slashed its forecast of U.S. corn stocks by nine percent to 675 million bushels, the smallest carryover since 1995-96. This pushed corn, wheat and soybean futures higher, underscoring the heightened level of concern around food security issues. “Global crop prices and margins are expected to remain well above historic levels in 2011 as a result of very low global grain stocks, providing continued support for the entire crop input market,” said Agrium chief executive officer Mike Wilson. The company, based in Calgary, is the largest North American farm input retailer and one of the region’s largest fertilizer producers. Its fourth quarter net income rose to $158 million from $30 million a year earlier. Quarterly revenue rose more than 60 percent to $2.35 billion, driven by higher sales in its retail and wholesale businesses. For the full year net earnings were $714 million, up from $366 million.


Mustard growers could have a new outlet for this year’s harvest if everything goes as planned for a proposed processing venture. MPT Mustard Products & Technologies Inc. is raising $3 to $5 million in private equity to build a plant that will use mustard to make a biopesticide. “We aim to have the new plant up and running by September,” said general manager Jay Robinson. The fundraising began in November and will likely continue until next month. The company is looking for accredited investors with at least $1 million in assets to buy shares valued at 35 cents apiece. Robinson wouldn’t divulge how much money has been raised. “We’re getting there,” he said. MPT chief executive officer John Cross recently told the touring House of Commons agriculture committee that the fundraising exercise has been a pleasant surprise. He said investors are becoming more aware of the economic and social benefits of agriculture, which makes it easier to raise the capital required to commercialize new technologies. “That’s a situation I have not seen in my career, ever, in Canada. I think this is a very encouraging development,” said Cross, who is the founder of inoculant manufacturer Philom Bios. MPT is attempting to raise another $3 to $5 million in grants and loans from organizations such as Ag West

Bio and Sustainable Development Technology Canada. Robinson said the company will spend $2 million to build a 929 sq. metre plant in Saskatoon. The remainder will pay for commercializing its products and patented technologies. The plant will use 18,000 tonnes of mustard seed per year at full capacity to produce 12,000 tonnes of a biopesticide that controls soil borne pathogens and nematodes in high value crops such as strawberries, tomatoes and golf course turf. Robinson said MPT owns patents for extracting the glucosinolates in mustard and enhancing their pestkilling ability. A byproduct of the process is an oil that can be used for biodiesel production or as a binding agent in animal feed. Patrick Ackerman, chair of the Saskatchewan Mustard Development Commission, said the proposed plant is good news for growers who have been carrying over more than 100,000 tonnes of the crop in recent years. “Anytime we open a new market for demand, it helps everybody. It gets rid of more production.” The company could use as much as 12 percent of this year’s expected 145,000 tonne mustard crop if it successfully negotiates sales contracts for the biopesticide. Robinson said MPT will buy No. 3 and No. 4 mustard because the plant won’t have the same quality parameters as the condiment market. However, Ackerman thinks it may have to pay for No. 1 or No. 2

In a normal season we don’t grow that much 3s or 4s.” He said it will be nice to have another avenue for low quality product because it can be hard to move. Robinson said the biopesticide will be sold in the United States, Mexico, Ontario and British Columbia. “It’s aimed at high-value crops. Anything that’s over $10,000 per acre.” It will be sold to conventional farmers looking for alternatives to controversial products such as methyl bromide and methyl iodide and to organic farmers who need a nonsynthetic product to control soilborne pathogens.

The company anticipates it will have a biopesticide for broader acreage crops such as soybeans within two years. Robinson said there is plenty of room to expand the plant if necessary. It is a modular design, so doubling capacity would cost an estimated $200,000 rather than another $2 million. He believes the plant will generate $100 million in annual revenue within 10 years, which would significantly increase mustard demand. The company believes it may one day get into the condiment mustard business by consolidating some of the small prairie processing plants. Domestic mustard consumption has averaged 23,000 tonnes a year over the past three years.


Making tax installments will have you coming up roses FARM ACCOUNTS



o one enjoys paying their income taxes but farmers are often considered to be particularly tax averse. They would much rather buy farm inputs or equipment in hopes that the resulting tax shield will be sufficient enough to cover off their tax obligations. For this reason, the idea of making monthly corporate tax installments in advance is akin to living in an alternative universe. The Canada Revenue Agenc y requires corporations to pay monthly installments of their estimated taxes payable before the corporation’s balance-due day, which is generally three months after the end of the company’s taxation year. The agency will charge taxpayers interest if these installments are not

made, but unlike most forms of interest, it is not tax deductible. The CRA sets the interest on a quarterly basis. Taxpayers have three options when determining their monthly installment amount: • estimate their taxes payable for the coming year and divide it by 12; • divide their preceding year’s taxes payable by 12; • make their first two months of installment payments as onetwelfth of their second preceding year’s tax payable and the next 10 months of installments calculated at one-tenth of their preceding year’s tax payable.

I think farmers are more worried about whether installments should be paid at all rather than which installment option generates the lowest monthly amount. What is the cost of not making installment payments? The CRA charged interest on overdue installments for all four quarters of 2010 at a rate of five percent, which was compounded daily. It would also have charged an installment shortfall penalty of 50 percent of all interest on deficient installments for the year if corporate taxes payable exceeded $40,000. This translated into a CRA cost of

borrowing of 5.917 percent for many farmers who did not make their required installments. Many farmers wonder whether they should use their operating line of credit to make corporate tax installments. Farmers who did this last year reduced their CRA cost of borrowing to 4.275 percent from 5.917 percent. This difference of 1.573 percent of their 2010 taxes payable ended up in their pockets, which can be used for other things. Put another way, since I’m an advocate for corporate tax installments,

I’ve had my best success in convincing clients by appealing to their romantic side. My mantra is that if you make your 2011 corporate tax installments, you can give your wife a year’s worth of flowers for free. So far it’s been working. Either farmers are the ultimate romantics or they simply prefer writing 12 small cheques over the course of the year rather than one large cheque at the end.

GUELPH, Ont. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The sharply divided sides in the genetically modified food debate were on display last week as activists marched in bitter cold while researchers and MPs discussed biotechnologyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential inside. On Feb. 9, the House of Commons agriculture committee listened as researchers and agribusiness representatives discussed the inevitability of GM material in the food chain and the need for effective regulation to harness the benefits of biotechnology research. Several blocks away on the University of Guelph campus, scores of students and community and farm activists donned pig snouts to protest against an application by the university to win regulatory approval for the commercialization of enviropig, its trademarked GM Yorkshire pig. It was developed in 1999 with a gene that allows it to absorb more phosphorus from feed, which reduces the amount of phosphorus sup-

plements needed for feed, cuts the amount of phosphorus in pig manure and reduces water pollution. The enviropig is now in its eighth generation of development, said University of Guelph communications official Lori Bona-Hunt. The university has made applications to Environment Canada, Health Canada, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for permission to release it into the North American hog herd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The long-term goal is to take the technology and put it to use, commercialize it,â&#x20AC;? she said. Environment Canada has ruled that it is not an environmental risk and can be produced in confinement. Bona-Hunt said she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know when other rulings could be made. Human consumption trials are not allowed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking some time before there will be any movement toward getting it on a fork,â&#x20AC;? she said. However, that was no comfort for protesters at the campus rally.

They carried signs and chanted slogans demanding that the university withdraw its applications that would allow commercialization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No GM pork on my fork,â&#x20AC;? was a common placard sign. Sean McGovern, regional co-ordinator for the National Farmers Union in Ontario, told the crowd that the existence of the applications and the possibility they could succeed are dangerous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This GM pig could ruin the trust Canadians have in our pork,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very worried that a decision by Health Canada to approve the GM pig will trigger a consumer backlash against eating pork. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down to the University of Guelph to cancel their request for approval. This is the only way to protect our markets.â&#x20AC;? Protesters also objected that the GM pig had been â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenwashedâ&#x20AC;? by using a name that makes it sound environmentally friendly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It reduces phosphorus emission into the environment and into water,â&#x20AC;? countered Bona-Hunt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is good for the environment.â&#x20AC;? access=subscriber section=news,technology,livestock

Police are asking the public to help find suspects in two separate thefts of diesel fuel from construction equipment in rural Saskatchewan. Const. Dave MacCarville of the Swift Current rural RCMP detachment said they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only fuel theft cases on file. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not new. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite common.â&#x20AC;? He said thieves pumped 350 litres of diesel out of a track hoe parked near the village of Success, Sask., between Dec. 23 and Jan. 2. The construction equipment had been left at a job site in the oil patch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard for farmers and contractors to keep their equipment under lock and key,â&#x20AC;? MacCarville said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working on a job I know you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take them home every night but unfortunately when things are left out in the open like that, given the opportunity, some people will take advantage of it.â&#x20AC;? Greg Marshall, president of the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan, blamed the increase in thefts on high fuel prices. MacCarville said not much more can be done other than locking the fuel cap and putting a screen in the fuel line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other than that, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know of a whole lot you can do for these types of thefts anyway.â&#x20AC;? Marshall agreed.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I bet you 99 percent of the farms with fuel tanks are always locked up,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s common practice now.â&#x20AC;? He said farmers have learned to minimize their risk during peak periods when they leave their equipment in the field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The practice is to fill them in the morning before starting so there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that temptation.â&#x20AC;? MacCarville said fuel thefts were more prevalent last summer than they were in winter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably going to be an issue again this summer. If farmers can keep their stuff out of the field or locked up, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably be better ahead.â&#x20AC;? A theft of 1,100 litres of diesel also occurred during the Christmas holidays at a construction business near Aberdeen, Sask. Sgt. Bruce Janes of the SaskatoonColonsay RCMP said the fuel was probably siphoned. He said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy securing machinery in remote rural locations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With working equipment, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to take the batteries out and do this and that. Especially around here in the rural area, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a lot of people around.â&#x20AC;? Locking up machinery is no guarantee, he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier said than done,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just hoping that somebody hears something or knows something they can call into Crime Stoppers.â&#x20AC;? access=subscriber section=news,none,none






Canadian food sector falling behind Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute report | Lost opportunities, falling profits damaging BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

An Ottawa-based research thinktank partially funded by Agriculture Canada has issued a provocative report calling on governments and the food sector to dramatically improve their competitive performance. The 100-page report from the Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute describes a country whose food sector is stagnating, falling behind other countries in the fight for global markets, lacking in innovation investment and held back by outdated regulations. “Canada is not realizing the full potential of a major strategic asset — the country’s agri-food sector,” it said. “The consequences of falling profitability, lost opportunity and declining relevance are impairing the nation’s agri-food industry.” It said the country is missing a significant opportunity. “Canada can be the world’s leading producer of nutritious and safe foods produced in a sustainable, profitable manner.” CAPI president David McInnes said the report offers high-level concepts rather than detailed policy prescriptions, but it stresses the need for more collaboration and a more coordinated oversight of industry requirements. There must be co-ordination between now-disparate polic y areas such as environment, health, transportation, trade policy and agriculture policy, which could be overseen by a new cabinet committee on food. “This is meant to be a call for action and I think people in the industry are ready for that,” he said. CAPI is not proposing fast and radical changes. Rather, it suggests a 15-year evolution that is incremental. It suggests doubling the value of food exports to $75 billion by 2025, increasing the portion of the Canadian market supplied by Canadian food from 68 percent to 75 percent and having 75 percent of the sector rely on biofuel by 2025. CAPI said signs of trouble in the sector include the fact that Brazil has passed Canada in value of exports. As well, Canada’s place in the export of manufactured food has fallen from third to seventh. Only a healthy surplus in commodity exports keeps Canada in a food trade surplus, but in seven of the past 10 years, overall farmer income from the market has been in deficit, requiring program payments. The CAPI report suggests that farmer business risk management programs be reformed to increase premiums on higher-risk operations, reduce expenditures and make more money available for investment in research and innovation.

Curling a way for rural women to connect and stay active

Food allergy groups welcome bill

Research study underway | Benefits of curling overlooked in hockey-dominated communities


Anaphylaxis Canada, the Canadian Celiac Association and other groups realized their goal of improved food labelling when federal health minister Leona Aglukkaq announced new industry regulations Feb. 14. At an Ottawa news conference, Aglukkaq said that Canadians with food allergies and intolerances need full disclosure on labels to avoid food they cannot eat. The passage of a new label law requiring plain language, using the word milk instead of casein and including more detailed allergen information on ingredient listings like spices had been threatened in recent weeks by a last minute exemption request from the beer industry. Brewers were granted their exemption, but not wine and spirits, allowing the regulations to move forward into law. Gwen Smith, editor of Allergic Living magazine, said that this is a victory for people needing detailed information on food labels, but the exemption of the beer industry is disappointing and means that consumers must beware of brews with specialty ingredients like chocolate or nuts. A chocolate beer has the word chocolate on the label but that doesn’t indicate if the chocolate is free of nuts, dairy or gluten. “That’s the kind of listing that’s absolutely useless to people with allergies and intolerances,” she said. Smith credited lobby efforts by members of Anaphylaxis Canada, the Canadian Celiac Association and others for helping the regulations move forward. “If it hadn’t been for all the pressure through the community’s letters ... these regulations would have been left to expire on a shelf.” The new labels will not appear until August 2012, giving the food and beverage industry 18 months to make the required changes.


Curling helps maintain women’s physical health, keeps them active and connected to other people in the community and is a fun way to support the community, new research has documented. On the negative side, declining rural population often means fewer resources to keep the rinks open. Growing up on a farm at Beadle, Sask., visits to the local curling rink were simply part of life for curling researcher Beverly Leipert. They were part of the school’s physical education program and a key part of community life. “It was very much a community spirit thing to do,” she said. “There is an egalitarian side to curling that brings everyone together as equals on the ice.” Then, she curled on natural ice with its occasionally finicky conditions. These days, she curls on the more predictable artificial ice at a rink in London, Ont., where she is an associate professor of nursing at the University of Western Ontario and a lead author of the study on the role curling plays in the health and community lives of rural Canadian women. It is mid-point in a three-year study funded by a $134,000 grant from Sports Canada. Researchers are recording the experiences and impressions of 64 women and girls in rural communities in Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario and the Northwest Territories. “The project looks at the effect of curling on rural women’s health, physical, mental and community,” Leipert said. “We are finding the benefits are quite substantial. It is really a way for rural women who often are isolated to connect and be part of the community.” But as rural communities decline, rinks often close and finding a curling venue is more difficult and involves more travel. Declining population also means fewer volunteers to run the rinks and stage bonspiels. Curling tends to get overshadowed by hockey in rural communities and there is a need for more coaching and support for girls and women curlers in small communities, she said. And Leipert complained that media do not give curling events and accomplishments the coverage and

She said the study involving collaborators from the University of

groups were issued cameras and logbooks to record their experiences and their assessment of the impact of curling on their physical and social health. Then they gather with the researchers to discuss and analyze what they have recorded. “I really think this is the first of its kind,” said Leipert.





Whip-cracking cowboy works herd, entertains Cowboy tradition | Cracking the whip takes timing, rhythm, accuracy and hours of practice


Gough filled his afternoons practising the whip, honing his accuracy, timing and rhythm. The hard work paid off for Gough, a five time world champion whip cracker. Before moving to Canada in 1996, he worked on a 57,000 head cattle ranch in Australia where whips are commonly used. Gough said the whip is steadily being added to the cowboy’s saddle in Canada. “It’s becoming a good tool for them to have. A lot of them feel that if they don’t have a whip and a rope together, they don’t feel like they have enough tools,” he said. He said a whip and herding dog can be assets for ranches. “I won’t say that the whip replaces the dog and a dog doesn’t replace a whip. They can work really good together,” he said. Gough said whips are tools for directing noise. “With a whip, you can simply sit back, sound your whip and they just

BORDEN, Sask. — Celery clenched firmly between her teeth, Melissa Saunders braces herself. Obediently, she holds her head level, eyes closed, and waits for the crack of the whip. Splinters of celery fly high. Will Gough has just demonstrated the precise art of whip cracking. His eye, arm and whip line up and with each stroke, his whip slices a small chunk of celery. Gough has been entertaining and teaching people with his whip-cracking skills for a quarter century. The Borden, Sask., cowboy uses the whip as a tool and also makes and sells custom whips. He was once asked during a Wild West performance to outdraw a gunslinger using his whip. Just as the gun cleared the holster, Gough’s whip cracked and pulled the gun out of the shooter’s hand, with the crack of the whip breaking the sound barrier and creating a sonic boom. He was born in Australia where whips w e re c o m m o n l y used with cattle. “(Grandfather) With a whip, you can simply sit was probably back, sound your whip and they the most accujust move off in a direction.

move off in a direction. You can actually train your cattle to work a lot easier and keep a low stress,” he said. “If they get bottlenecked and jammed up in the gateway, they start to mill a little bit. You can take the sound of your whip, instead of directing it behind the mob, you can direct that sound to the ones a little bit further in the front and push the front through,” he said. Gough warns against its overuse. “If you crack the whip all the time, the cattle start to ignore it. You’re desensitizing them,” he said. “If you use good common sense, you can train your cattle to work off the whip.… A good man with a whip is probably as good as five or six men with no whips,” he said. When he’s not performing or teaching whip cracking, Gough makes whips to sell. “I try to get ahead of orders but quite often as soon as we get them made, they’re gone,” said Gough, who has made more than 3,000 whips over the past 25 years. Prices range from $200 to $600 each. Gough prefers the Australian stock whip, saying it is the easiest to work and carry. “You can get all the power you want, use it all day long and you won’t get tired using it,” he said. He makes his whips in two to five days with four, eight or 16 strands, often out of kangaroo hide, and uses tapered fibreglass handles. He said the best length for working in the yard or on a horse is 1.7 metres long. “I get very attached to my whips. I put my heart and soul into each and every whip,” he said. He credits his grandfather for s h ow i n g h i m h ow a w h i p should look,

feel and react. “ You want a whip that once you start the motion, it does the rest.” Gough said a wellmaintained whip can become a keepsake. “If you treat it like a tool a n d l o o k a f t e r t h e m, they’ll last you a lifetime and probably two or three lifetimes,” he said.

I have taken thyroid pills for many years. The label on the bottle says to take them on an empty stomach an hour before or after breakfast. This is awkward because I like to eat when I get up, and then if I wait until later, I often forget to take the pill. Can thyroxin be taken later in the day or will it keep me awake at night?

Get Active A change of activity can be refreshing and invigorating and good for your health. The Public Health Agency of Canada’s new guidelines for physical activity suggest adding exercise into your day in 10-minute intervals. Start slow and build your activity to 30 minutes and then 60 minutes of moderate daily physical activity for adults and at least 90 minutes of physical activity for children and youth. I set my stove timer for 10 minutes, put on some wrist weights and began walking from one end of the house to the other. I went up and down the stairs to our second storey from the basement, swinging my arms as I walked. I was amazed at how I began breathing faster. I guess that is a sign I need to do more physical activity. I was able to do almost 10 circuits in the 10 minutes. I did stretches also and felt more energetic and alert after exercising. On slippery winter days, this is a good way to get moving. Keep your water bottle handy. Look for ways to build more physical activity into your daily routine. Fill the laundry basket only half full and make more trips. Do the same when bringing in the groceries. When you go to town, park your vehicle, go for a walk and then do your errands.

TYPES OF EXERCISE There are two types of exercises that need to be included in an active lifestyle: aerobic activities and strengthening activities. Examples of aerobic activities are brisk walking, dancing, biking, climbing stairs and swimming. The continuous movement will make you feel warmer and breathe deeper. With moderate aerobic activities, you should be able to talk but not sing. With vigorous-intensity aerobic activity, your heart rate will increase significantly. Aerobic activities benefit your heart, lungs and circulation. Strengthening activities help to keep muscles and bones strong and prevent bone loss. They will also help improve balance and posture. Strengthening exercises can be divided into two types of activities, bone strengthening and muscle strengthening. Physical activity that puts tension or muscle force against the bone helps to make the bones stronger. Muscle strengthening activities such as lifting weights or pushups increase the strength, endurance and

Traditionally, thyroxin was always prescribed to be taken in the morning but new research has shown that it might be better to have it in the evening. A common brand name for thyroxin is Synthyroid. In studies, the hormone levels of test subjects improved when the thyroid pills were taken at bedtime, compared to taking the drugs in the morning on an empty stomach. The six-month, randomized, double blind crossover trial was conducted in 105 patients with primary hypothyroidism. Patients were told to take one capsule in the morning half an hour before breakfast, and one capsule at bedtime. One of the capsules was a placebo while the other was levothyroxine. Most patients ate only a small snack or nothing at all for several hours prior to bedtime. The capsule administration times were then switched. The dosage was not changed. Thyroid function tests showed marked improvement with the evening administration. I expect this is because, like you, most patients had trouble taking the pill in the morning without eating right away. Food interferes with the absorption of medications in the small intestine. Try taking your thyroxin before bed. It will not keep you awake but let your doctor know what you are doing.



Is it a good thing to eat a lot at breakfast time if you are trying to lose weight?


Nutritionists have always maintained that eating a good breakfast is a helpful way to keep your weight under control because you may be inclined to eat less for the rest of the day. However, some experts are now saying that cutting calories at breakfast time may help with a weight loss program. I think it depends on how you interpret the words “a good breakfast.” It doesn’t mean a large portion of egg, sausages and fried potatoes with two slices of toast and jam. A bowl of cereal with some fruit is healthier and contains fewer calories. Don’t skip breakfast or you will eat more later in the day. Clare Rowson is a retired medical doctor in Belleville, Ont.

Canada allows peaceful protests THE LAW



I have been reading about the unrest in Egypt and thought of protests in Canada, such as the G20 conference. What is the law regarding protesters in Canada?


Unlike some other countries, Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms does not give people an unrestricted right to gather and associate. It is restricted to permitting peaceful assemblies. Canada is a nation founded on strict principles of order. Key words in our history are “peace, order and good government.” This is distinct from the United States, where the country was founded on “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” We just aren’t as freewheeling on such issues. Bear in mind that the charter is subject to modifying language in Section 1. Specified rights and freedoms are enshrined “to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society.” Our rights are not limitless and are

subject to restrictions, provided they are reasonable. Reasonable varies with the eye of the beholder. Governments and police services can restrict the right of assembly if it is not peaceful in nature. You can disagree and have a judge decide. The police also have wide discretionary powers at an assembly or protest. The phrase “read the riot act” stems from a British law called the Riot Act, whose provisions would be read to people as a warning to disperse or be arrested. In Canada, this act was used only a couple of times in history. Those old legal provisions have now been incorporated into the Criminal Code of Canada. Under Section 31 of the Criminal Code, police have the right to arrest or detain people for “breaching the peace.” Any public protest that breaches the peace can be stopped by police and the protesters ordered to leave. Section 63 of the Code contains a ban on “unlawful assembly,” which is three or more persons gathered in a way that causes reasonable people in the locale to legitimately fear that the gathering will seriously disturb the peace or incite other persons to do that. Again, as the charter preserves only the right to “peaceful assembly,” this legal provision falls safely within the charter and does not breach it. The Criminal Code is national but towns and cities generally have powers to regulate such activities inside

city limits. Bylaws can be passed to regulate the size and type of demonstrations within a municipality. There are no exhaustive definitions of peaceful assembly or proper protesting within Canada. The decision of whether a protest is legal is left to the senior police officer attending the scene. Some critics have questioned whether this is appropriate. Shouldn’t citizens know what is right and wrong regarding protests before they start? Shouldn’t courts and legislatures define this, rather than leaving it to police officers at a scene that may be heated? It is arguable that the people best equipped to decide what is legal are simply not making the call. Rick Danyliuk is a lawyer with McDougall Gauley LLP in Saskatoon. Contact:

m Trivia



My husband has successfully turned a small farm implement shop into a major commercial outlet. He makes a lot of money every year but he does not keep it. He has given thousands of dollars to his two sisters and brother, none of whom worked that much and did anything to help my husband when he was struggling to build his business. When I asked my husband about it, he said that he feels guilty about making so much money and that he does not deserve it. He would rather go broke giving everything away than enjoy his success. Does that make any sense? What can I do to help him?


My guess is that he is struggling with a fear of success. All of us know people who are afraid to do anything in case they fail but it does not stop there. Some people are so afraid of being successful that they will deliberately sabotage themselves so they fail.

Farmers who have made a few dollars may find themselves leaving spring seeding until it is too late for them to get another successful crop in the fall. We do not have statistics on how many people are struggling with the fear of success but we know that it is more common than we realize. Instead of recognizing and appreciating the hard work they put into building a project, people fearing success believe that they have been lucky and are often surprised when they start reaping the benefits of their labours. If your husband is struggling with the fear of success, you need to spend more time talking to each other. He needs to remember how he opened his shop early in the morning and worked long days and through the supper hour. He needs to check his books to see how he supported others when he saw that they were struggling to make payments. Then he will know he deserves to be successful.

Couple returns home to seed a successful farm Growing a business | Pedigreed seed business expands to seed cleaning for a Meadow Lake couple BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

MEADOW LAKE, Sask. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ryan Wilfingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandfather could still get a homestead in 1926, provided he went to northern Saskatchewan. So he did, clearing his quarter and helping other immigrants do the same. Agriculture and forestry have co-existed in the region ever since. Tucked along the forest fringe northeast of Meadow Lake, Wilfing Farms is mostly black loam soil with some grey woodland. It sits a few kilometres from a large pulp mill and Ryan said some of the land still has sand ridges from glaciation. Ryan grew up on the farm, leaving to study agricultural engineering and working at Morris Industries and Flexi-Coil Industries before returning with wife, Jennifer, in 2000 to farm. They lived in Meadow Lake for five years before moving into the farm home, vacated by Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retiring parents. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the ideal time to get into farming. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was scared to come back,â&#x20AC;? said Jennifer, who also has a university degree in psychology and worked in early childhood development. The 2002 drought left them with no crop and frost hit twice in the first four years, resulting in small crops. Ryan and Jennifer took on four quarters of their own, and Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad paid him a salary to work his acres. There are also two other brothers who work off the farm but retain an interest in it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 2004, we incorporated because it was tough to keep things separate,â&#x20AC;? access=subscriber section=farmliving,none,none

Ryan and Jennifer Wilfing, with daughters, Emma and Aubrie, and their dog, Wally, stand on the scale at the seed cleaning plant on their farm east of Meadow Lake, Sask. | KAREN BRIERE PHOTO Ryan said. They also had to figure out how to support two families. The Wilfings already produced two varieties of pedigreed seed â&#x20AC;&#x201D; barley

and peas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and decided that expanding that business could generate more dollars per acre. Using Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engineering expertise, construction of the seed clean-

ing plant began in the fall of 2002 and finished the following April. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cleaned the whole crop in that month,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said. But things have changed since then, turning the plant into an income generator. Today, all the wheat, barley, oats and peas they grow are for pedigreed seed. They grow canola commercially. The acreage expanded from 1,700 to 3,500 acres, most of that rented. Next year, they intend to direct seed 4,300 acres. Calls have been coming in this winter from as far as southern Alberta as farmers decimated by last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flooding look for seed. The Wilfings are already sold out of some varieties. Fortunately, their plans always include a few bins of carryover. Ryan said they focus on short-season varieties given their location. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the first of May, there is still snow in the fence lines most years,â&#x20AC;? he said. Last year looked promising, with an early melt and the crop going in by May 22. Still, they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seed everything they intended and lost between five and eight percent of what did go in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tried lentils last year,â&#x20AC;? said Ryan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was not so good.â&#x20AC;? Yield was good but the quality was not, leading him to stick with peas as a better choice for the area. Two employees and seasonal help from his dad keep the farm and plant operating. The employees are also kept busy hauling in the farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s semi. The closest elevators are at North Battleford, more than 150 kilometres away. There were once about 10 small elevators in Meadow Lake, said Ryan, but not one of them stands today. That long haul and the short growing season are the two main challenges with farming so far north. Ryan also lists short harvesting days as a concern. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We usually canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t combine until

noon,â&#x20AC;? he said. They use three combines and try to go as late as possible but that in itself can be a challenge with the 12 to 14 varieties they grow. Harvest has to be timed so that the combines can be cleaned at a time that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cause evening delays. Jennifer said finding employees can also be an issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to compete with the mills and the (log) truckers,â&#x20AC;? she said. On a January day, semis are in and out of the yard hauling seed to Viking, Alta., and bringing the Wilfings fertilizer. About half of their seed sales are into Alberta, where customers are looking for low fusarium, and orders come in early. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are almost going to be sold out for next year,â&#x20AC;? said Ryan. A niche market that came up a few years ago involves sales to deer and bear outfitters. Outfitters must use clean grain in the forest bait stations, Ryan said. They clean, bag and sell alfalfa and chickpeas for their customers, selling between 3,000 and 3,500 bags each year. This also spreads out their cash flow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;November is busy with outfitters and hunters,â&#x20AC;? said Jennifer, who looks after the farm books. She also said that last year they saw demand for clean oats with no dust for chuck wagon horses, which are mostly retired thoroughbreds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to get rich out of it,â&#x20AC;? said Ryan, but it keeps them in touch with customers and others in agriculture. They host a field day each summer to showcase their varieties. The Wilfings are members of FP Genetics and SeCan, as well as the Saskatchewan Seed Growers Association. They also keep busy with their two young daughters, Emma, eight, and Aubrie, six.
