Barley expected to make comeback Acres fall sharply | Recovery attributed to supply-demand or anticipated loss of CWB single desk BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Canadian barley acres may finally have bottomed out, according to officials in the grain and livestock industries. “We do not have enough barley around to sustain our local industries right now,” said Bruce Burnett, the Canadian Wheat Board’s director of weather and market analysis. He expects feed barley prices to rise to encourage more acres in the ground in 2012. “We’re going to need to find some more feed grains somehow and the one way to do that is for prices to go up,” said Burnett. “We’ll see probably a stronger barley market at the end of the year.”

Bill Jameson, chair of the National Cattle Feeders Association, also anticipates a reversal in what has been a precipitous decline in barley plantings. A crop that used to consistently occupy 11 to 13 million acres of prairie farmland in the 1990s and early 2000s has plummeted below seven million acres in each of the last two crop years. Jameson thinks the Canadian Wheat Board is partly to blame for the crop’s steady demise. He contends that young farmers with big operations don’t like dealing with the CWB and have switched to growing pulses and special crops. Cattle feeders believe the crop’s fortunes will change come Aug. 1, 2012, when the board loses its single

desk powers and the crop starts to attract research dollars from some of the major players in the seed development industry. “The general consensus is that it should help to possibly increase barley acreage,” said Jameson. He expects prices will rise once growers are allowed to freely export feed barley to the United States, which would be a double-edged sword for cattle producers. “On one hand we expect barley to increase in price, which is probably a bit of a detriment to the cattle industry. However, we also feel the acreage will increase,” said Jameson. Burnett doesn’t see a direct link between Canada’s single desk marketing system and barley’s flagging popularity.

“You can blame the wheat board or you can blame whatever. I would tend to think this is probably highly related to the price of oilseeds and other competitive crops,” he said. Barley is grown in the same regions of the Prairies as canola and is having a tough time competing with $12 or $13 a bushel prices for the oilseed. Competitive pressures are also slashing U.S. barley acres, which are less than one-third what they were two decades ago, tumbling to 2.6 million acres in 2011 from 8.2 million acres in 1990. The decline has been particularly stark in North Dakota, where the crop has lost ground to soybeans and corn. SEE BARLEY COMEBACK, PAGE 2

Barley comeback predicted “They didn’t have a Canadian Wheat Board in the upper Plains and their barley acreage is shrinking as well,” said Burnett. Any resurgence in the crop will likely happen in Canada, where it is still the main source of feed for the cattle industry. Barley in the U.S. has a tough time competing with a corn industry bolstered by an ethanol sector that is consuming 40 percent of the corn crop. Burnett doesn’t expect a massive rebound because barley still has to

compete with oilseed markets, which are expected to remain strong for at least another two or three years. But there is a sense that change is finally in the air for a crop that has been in a free fall for decades. “The decline probably has gone on long enough,” he said. Jameson said the only thing that could get in the way of a post-CWB monopoly barley comeback are some of the new low heat unit corn varieties starting to make inroads in Western Canada.

Farmers bag 100 bushel wheat crops Exceptional yields | ‘I’ve never seen anything like it,’ says elated Fairview, Alta., farmer after three year drought ends BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Don Wieben drives the combine these days rather than making decisions on the family farm. However, what he sees in the field and on the combine monitors still makes him smile. Never in his years farming has he seen such amazing yields: wheat yields of 100 to 120 bushels per acre. “I’ve never seen anything like it up here,” said Wieben, of Fairview, Alta. Daughter-in-law Bev Wieben called the yields phenomenal. After three years of dry weather and a difficult spring, Bev was surprised by the yields. “It’s pretty crazy. It takes a lot of combining,” said Bev, who on Oct. 10 estimated they had 18 days of combining left. The exceptional yields have also left the family with crop storage problems. Grain stored on the ground is a nice problem after years of dry weather in Alberta’s Peace River region. “This looked like possibly the fourth dry year; then the rains came in June and July and it never stopped,” she said. Excessive rain drowned out some crops on heavier land, and late rain slowed harvest and crop ripening. Further north at La Crete, Simon Driedger estimates harvest is 98 percent complete in his region with surprisingly good yields despite the dry start to the spring. “The crop turned out extra nice and the grades are good,” said Driedger. His canola yielded a respectable 35 to 38 bu. per acre, considering the dry spring, but other canola fields have yielded 58 bu. per acre. “It turned out to be not bad yields.” Art Funk, owner of Rolla Agricul-

Don Wieben of Fairview, Alta., tightens part of a knife on a John Deere combine. He said it’s the best crop the family has seen in all their years of farming. This wheat field ran about 100 bushels per acre, but other fields yielded even better. | MARY MACARTHUR PHOTO tural Services in Rolla, B.C,. said he estimates harvest at 75 to 80 percent complete with a range of yields. “The cereals are fantastic, probably record breaking,” said Funk. Canadian Prairie Spring wheat

yields were 100 to 120 bu. per acre and hard red spring yields were 65 to 90 bu. per acre. Funk said he hasn’t heard of fus-arium problems in wheat, and many of the fields are grading number one quality.

“The early fields to come off were dry and number one. Last week they were tough, but still a good grade.” He said canola yields were “all over the map,” but most fields yielded below average because of excessive

rain. However, farmers are relatively optimistic about this year’s crop. “If the crop comes off, they’ll be in a good mood. This week a lot of grain came off so they’re going to be in a good mood.”


Conservatives vow to pass wheat board bill by December Wheat board promises court action | Opposition parties concede majority government can probably make it happen BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

After decades of debate and five years of promised change from a minority Conservative government, agriculture minister Gerry Ritz says the Canadian Wheat Board monopoly issue will be settled this year. On Oct. 18, Ritz was expected to table legislation — An Act to reorganize the Canadian Wheat Board and to make consequential and related amendments to certain Act — that will end the 68-year-old monopoly. In a speech in Acme, Alta. Oct. 17, Ritz vowed that the majority Conservatives will make sure the bill clears Parliament by December so the monopoly will end Aug. 1, 2012. He said Conservatives made a “handshake” deal with farmers in the May election to end the monopoly. “Not only do we plan to introduce this legislation, but we intend to pass this legislation very quickly,” he told a

supportive crowd on an Alberta farm the day before the legislation was scheduled to be unveiled. “Let me be clear. The Harper government intends to pass this historic legislation by the end of this calendar year.” CWB chair Allen Oberg quickly promised to use board funds to take the Conservatives to court. The board of directors will decide what to do next week after studying the legislation. He called the Conservative plan reckless and a recipe for industry chaos and farmer losses. “We will see a fundamental shift of marketing power and wealth away from prairie farmers and into the hands of huge foreign-based corporations,” the Forestburg, Alta., farmer told an Oct. 17 news conference in Winnipeg. “We have a government that is ignoring the law of the land, ignoring the clearly expressed wishes of farmers and running roughshod over people for reasons they will not make clear.… This is an issue we will take

before the courts. We wouldn’t do it if we didn’t think it was winnable.” The CWB argument is that the present legislation requires a farmer plebiscite to approve any change in board power. The government argument is that its new legislation will rescind the CWB Act and therefore gets rid of that requirement. Meanwhile, the parliamentary opposition is promising a vigorous fight against the legislation, even as the main political opponent concedes that a majority Conservative government intent on rushing the bill through probably can get its way. In an Oct. 17 interview, Winnipeg New Democrat and CWB critic Pat Martin said he thought Ritz’s December deadline is “wildly optimistic. I don’t like his chances of getting it through all stages by the time Parliament adjourns for the winter recess in mid-December.” However, he later conceded the opposition has limited power in a

majority Parliament. “Our options are limited,” said Martin. “We don’t have too many cards to play if they choose to be draconian and cut off debate at every stage. I’m sure the minister can meet his December deadline if he throws all democratic process to the wind. Those who are opposing the bill will have to rely on garnering support from the general public to ensure a thorough analysis of the implications of this.” Liberal agriculture critic Frank Valeriote argued for an emergency debate on the issue in the House of Commons Oct. 17 but was turned down by speaker Andrew Sheer. Still, Valeriote said parliamentary opposition will be vigorous. “It is a tragedy that the government is going ahead and not honouring the law,” he said. “This iconic institution is now under siege and it had protection under the law that the Conservatives are ignoring. It would be only decent

that the government allow a fulsome debate on this and not cut it off for an artificial deadline.” During his speech in Alberta, Ritz said the May 2 Conservative election victory was prairie farmer consent to end the CWB monopoly since virtually all ridings in the CWB area voted Conservative. “The Canadian Wheat Board that was born in a different time to meet different needs has cast a chill over key parts of the grain sector of Western Canada in today’s reality,” he said. “The six-decade-old Canadian Wheat Board is yesterday’s solution to yesterday’s problem. The fact is today’s farmers are entrepreneurs.” He insisted the Conservatives want prairie farmers to have a choice between a voluntary wheat board or the open market. Oberg insisted it is a false choice. FOR RELATED STORY, SEE PAGE 4






Alberta cow woos judges at dairy show World Dairy Expo | Missy captured supreme champion for characteristics ‘as close to perfect as you can get’ BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

A five-year-old Alberta dairy cow has beat out thousands of other cattle to be named supreme champion at World Dairy Expo, one of the world’s most prestigious dair y shows. Eastside Lewisdale Gold Missy EX95, or Missy for short, won senior champion in her class in Madison, Wisconsin, earlier this month before going on to win grand champion Holstein and then supreme champion of the more than 2,000 elite dairy cows at the show. “It’s a massive win,” said Andy Parry, marketing manager for Morsan Farms of Ponoka, Alta. “It’s an accomplishment everyone dreams about.” Missy made headlines two years ago when she was sold to a syndicate for $1.2 million. She is owned by Morsan Farms, Mark Butz of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Van Ruinene Dairy of Lacombe, Alta., and George Uebelhardt and Gert Andreasen of Ponoka. Missy was born in Prince Edward Island and bought by the Morsan farm in 2008. Parry said the judges in Wisconsin named her the winner for her looks, confirmation and longevity. “Essentially she’s very, very good in all traits,” said Parry. “She’s as close to perfect as you can get.” The publicity around the win has already translated into sales and new business for the farm with dairy farms around the world looking for Missy’s genetics.

Parry said the Royal in Toronto and the World Expo in Wisconsin are the

most prestigious dairy shows globally, attracting thousands of people from around the world to see the top dairy cattle. It takes a team of six people, a liner

and a support truck to haul the show cattle to Toronto. “It’s a huge logistical operation,” Parry said of the three-week trip. The owners will begin an embryo

CWB details requirements from feds to go voluntary BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

The Canadian Wheat Board says Ottawa would have to spend at least $425 million plus debt guarantees and favourable regulations if it is to survive as a voluntary marketer. CWB chair Allen Oberg said the Conservative government has had the board’s recommendations since July but has not responded appropriately. “It will be up to this government to decide what assistance they are willing to provide,” he told an Oct. 17 news conference. “If it (a voluntary CWB) has to operate on strictly commercial terms, it will not be here for long.” Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz’s office did not make him available Oct. 17 to answer questions about the CWB demands. They include: • A $225 million capital injection to help the voluntary board finance inventories and business operations until it has a track record to take to private lenders. • A “risk reserve” of $200 million to cover initial payment guarantees access=subscriber section=news,none,none

The Canadian Wheat Board says turning it into a voluntary wheat marketer will require a major commitment from the federal government. | FILE PHOTO to farmers in case prices fall. • Borrowing guarantees for at least five years to cover debt financing. • Government ownership of the new voluntary marketer on an interim basis because another ownership structure could not be created in the nine months before the proposed end of the monopoly. “An appropriate exit strategy would have to be put in place to enable the government to divest its shares in the new entity in due course.” • Regulations to allow the voluntary CWB access to country and port grain terminals because it will have no facilities of its own. It is a proposal rejected by an industry work-

ing group appointed by the minister that laid out a strategy for ending the monopoly based on largely unfettered market forces with no special deals for a new CWB. Grain companies have opposed any special government help for a new competitor. • Regulations to allow a voluntary CWB to direct its grain to the export port terminals of its choosing rather than sending it into the general grain pipeline. Although Ritz insists he wants CWB supporters to have access to a viable voluntary company, it is a list of demands the government seems unlikely to meet.

Oberg said the demands are the least the board needs to have a chance of surviving in the marketplace. He said the proposals have been before the agriculture minister since July, although Ritz “attempts to paint CWB directors as being uncooperative.” It is the government that has not responded, he added. Ev e n a s t h e b o a rd m a k e s i t s demands for government help to usher in a new voluntary CWB grain marketing entity, Oberg offered a defiant rejection of the Conservative g ov e r n m e nt ’s p l a n t o e n d t h e monopoly. Prime minister Stephen Harper

and Ritz want farmers to believe “this is inevitable, a done deal,” he said. “I’m here to tell you this is not over. We cannot in good conscience give up this fight. The government’s approach is illegal, it is against the wishes of farmers and it is harmful to the economic interests of Canada.” And despite the outline of what the government should do to help, Oberg insisted the board will fight the government plan. “We will fight this in Ottawa, we will fight this in the courts and we will fight this in the court of public opinion,” he said. “This is nothing but contempt for farmers and contempt for democracy.”





All-wheat commission proposed in Alberta Committee looks for input | Organizers would like to merge existing commissions for winter wheat and soft white wheat BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Alberta wheat producers will be asked their views this fall about a proposed all-wheat commission, with the goal of establishment by next August. Commissions exist in the province for winter wheat and soft white wheat, but producers from both think an all-wheat commission would generate more money for research and market development for all types of wheat grown in Alberta. “It seems like money is slowly getting whittled away for basic research, and if we lose our basic research right now, we’re not going to find out for 10 years and then all of a sudden we’ll realize we have no varieties coming out,” said Kent Erickson, a farmer from Wainwright. He and Lynn Jacobson of Enchant are on a steering committee to explore the proposal and intend to give more information to producers if they can get on commodity groups’ fall meeting agendas. “The majority of spring wheat producers in Alberta are also canola producers and pea producers and winter wheat producers and barley producers, and they all have commissions as it stands right now,” said Erickson. “It does show producers do see a value in commissions.” An Ipsos Forward survey of 300 wheat producers found that 58 percent supported a checkoff to fund a wheat commission, said Erickson. Seventeen percent were not in favour and most of the rest said they needed more information to make an informed decision. The steering committee has developed a business plan, which includes a proposed 70 cents per tonne checkoff. Erickson said that number is based on the 30 cents per tonne checkoff already applied on Canadian Wheat Board grain that goes to the Western Grains Research Foundation.



A 70 cent checkoff for a wheat commission would mean an even $1 per tonne for all Alberta wheat. However, the number may be adjusted based on producer feedback this fall. “It’s up for discussion but it’s a fairly strong number for where our reve-

nues would be at,” said Erickson. Alberta’s five-year average wheat production is 7.6 million tonnes. Erickson said $3.5 million per year could be raised after subtracting wheat use for feed and other purposes. That could make government and

researchers take notice. “It’s a lot easier to match money than if we were to sit here and say, ‘we need more research dollars but we have no money to put into it.’ ” Erickson hopes the commission can be created by August. That is the same time the CWB is scheduled to

lose its monopoly on wheat and export barley, but he said the two events are not directly connected. The commission’s goal is to obtain funding for grassroots research and market development, he said. It is not intended to replace wheat board programs or activities.


Wet prairie spring sees winter wheat acres nearly double Estimates as high as 1.5 million acres | Some growers unable to seed a crop this spring have seeded winter wheat for the first time BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Official estimates aren’t finalized, but growers in Manitoba and Saskatchewan likely planted 800,000 acres of winter wheat this fall, said Winter Cereals Canada executive director Jake Davidson. “In western Manitoba, there is winter wheat everywhere you look,” said Davidson, who maintains an office for Winter Cereals Canada in Minnedosa, Man. If Davidson’s figures are correct, winter wheat in Manitoba and Saskatchewan would nearly double last year’s total of 430,000 acres for the two provinces, based on Statistics Canada estimates from June.


Alberta growers likely planted 200,000 acres of winter wheat this fall, said Paul Thoroughgood, regional agrologist for Ducks Unlimited in Regina. D a v i d s o n ’s a n d T h o r o u g h good’s estimates would result in

one million acres of winter wheat on the Prairies this fall, compared to 565,000 acres in 2010. However, Thoroughgood said one million acres could be a conservative guess because he’s heard estimates as high as 1.5 million acres. Davidson said many farmers in southeastern Saskatchewan and southwestern Manitoba were unable to seed a crop this spring because of overland flooding. Producers needed something to plant once the land dried up and opted for winter wheat, even if they had never previously grown the crop. “I have neighbours near me, brothers in their 70s that still farm, and they planted winter wheat for the first

time,” Davidson said. “Most of the calls I got (this summer) were people trying to find seed. They weren’t even sure where to go (to buy seed).” A warm and dry summer in Manitoba also meant farmers were able to harvest canola in late August or early September, said Pam DeRocquigny, Manitoba Agriculture’s feed grains specialist. “This year we had an early harvest for some of those canola acres. So there was stubble available for those winter wheat growers.” Many Manitoba growers seeded their winter wheat into dry soil, but timely rain has boosted germination going into the winter. “The crop is looking great. This is a

fantastic fall,” Davidson said. A 400,000 acre winter wheat crop in Manitoba would be short of the 511,000 acre record planted in 2007. Statistics Canada releases its estimates for winter wheat acres for the Prairies in the second week of December.

Roller coaster crops mirror stock market Price fall not linked to harvest | Analysts say world mood affects demand and prices BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

It looks like the old pattern, slightly abbreviated. However, analysts say it is premature and probably wrong to assume the trusty old harvest market is back with us, five years after it seemed to die. The recovery of crop prices almost certainly has more to do with the rebound in commodity and stock markets in the past two weeks and with generally tight crop supply and demand fundamentals than with the once-typical pattern. And those factors probably will determine the way forward, rather than seasonal patterns. “Those (harvest market) issues are not important any more, or at least they have sharply declined in importance in the commodity boom era,” said analyst Rich Nelson of Illinoisbased Allendale Inc. “The break we had a few weeks ago wasn’t related at all to harvest pressure.” Jon Driedger of FarmLink Marketing Solutions also thinks the harvest market isn’t a dominant force any longer, although he thinks it is still present in a smaller form. “To a certain extent it’s still a little bit of a factor, but it’s not big,” said Driedger. Crop markets have taken a pounding since September but then recovered sharply since the second week of October. That creates on the charts an appearance of the old harvest market. For decades, prices would typically slump in the fall as farmers harvested crops and dumped large amounts into the country grain elevator system. Farmers cared more about moving grain than getting good prices and buyers sold futures to hedge their grain purchases. As a result, prices were under a lot of pressure until the harvest season subsided. Then, typically in late fall or early


Slumping wheat prices aren’t expected to recover to late August levels, but they are still higher than they were a few years ago. | winter, prices would bottom and begin to slowly recover through the winter and into the spring. However, Driedger and Nelson said the present sell-off and recovery do not seem to be a product of farmer selling. The slump in crop prices has roughly mirrored the slump in overall commodity prices, and those occurred when the world markets became terrified of a euro currency zone meltdown. Corn futures slumped from almost $8 per bushel in late August to $6 in early October, while soybeans fell from more than $14.50 to $11.60. Early this week corn was about

$6.40 and soybeans $12.50. Spring wheat futures in Minneapolis fell from more than $9.40 per bushel to $8.20 before recovering to $8.40, while Winnipeg canola futures fell from about $13.40 per bu. to slightly more than $12, before recovering to almost $12.50. What does that mean for the future? Analysts say farmers can’t rely on the harvest market pattern being in control, as satisfying as that might be, because the “harvest lows” used to set the low prices for the year. However, it might be better for farmers to have the other factors in play because they suggest that both

crop supply and demand fundamentals and general world mood could take crop prices higher. Last week’s updated U.S. Department of Agriculture crop production numbers were close to traders’ assumptions. Stocks are still tight for corn and not overwhelming for other crops, so there is still room for today’s high prices to continue. “It was uneventful, which I guess is a good thing,” said Driedger. “It’ll help settle things down a bit.” The fall from summer’s peak has been hard to watch, Driedger acknowledged, but farmers should be happy that buyers piled in when


prices fell. “People have been stepping in and buying on the breaks, so perhaps we’re range bound.” Driedger isn’t optimistic about prices surpassing late August levels, even if the freefall has been reversed. “I think the highs are behind us.” However, being range bound at levels that are far higher than farmers could have imagined a few years ago is still a good situation. “These are still pretty good prices, so that’s good,” said Driedger.

Food maker wants to bag more Nexera canola acres PepsiCo switches oil | Its increasing use of Nexera in the production of its snacks means it needs consistent supply BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

PepsiCo is switching to Nexera oil for its potato and corn snacks. | FILE PHOTO

The world’s second biggest food and beverage company wants Canadian canola growers to plant more Nexera in 2012. PepsiCo began switching its Canadian product lines to omega 9 oils in 2010 and is now starting to convert some of its U.S. production facilities to the high oleic canola oil. “Getting the acres up there to be able to consistently supply the scale that we’re interested in is a key message,” said Steven James, director of strategic sourcing with PepsiCo Foods Canada. The omega 9 oil produced by Dow AgroSciences’ Nexera canola replaced mid-oleic sunflower oil in the production of PepsiCo’s extensive Canadian potato chip portfolio in the first quarter of 2010 and in its corn product line such as Doritos, Tostitos and Cheetos in the first quarter of 2011. “The Canadian business is a little bit more flexible. We move faster

than the big ship down south,” said James. “We’ve used Canada as a pilot and we’re now bringing on U.S. sites. We’re really trying to do that at a sustainable pace. As more oil is available, we’re adding more sites into the program.” That’s why James is asking Canadian growers to plant two million acres of Nexera in 2012, which would be double this year’s plantings. Farmers have heard similar messages from Dow and the crushers they deal with, but the companies feel it has more clout coming from an end user. “We really want farmers to understand at the other end of these conversations there is somebody that needs and wants the oil and we need and want a lot of oil,” said James. Years of testing have proven that Dow’s omega 9 oil meets all of the core taste, stability and health

requirements for North America’s largest vegetable oil user. But it also provided PepsiCo with a key advantage over the sunflower oil it had been using — canola is a much bigger crop. “(PepsiCo) was a very big portion of that (sunflower) demand so I had some supply risk if there was a crop failure or reduced acres on sunflowers,” said James. Dave Dzisiak, commercial oil leader at Dow AgroSciences, said the 2011 canola harvest results reaffirmed PepsiCo’s decision to make the switch. “Last year (2011) was one of the toughest growing seasons ever and we’ll come off with one of the best crops ever,” he said. The PepsiCo account is expected to consume half of Dow’s omega 9 oil production in 2012, so it is an important customer to appease. “PepsiCo is a big buyer. They buy more than a lot of countries we sell to,” said Dzisiak. That is why Dow and its processing partners have been lining up new growers to sign Nexera contracts. Dzisiak knows what motivates farmers. “We’re very confident that we can yield as good as any other canola that’s out there,” he said. The company is putting its mon-

e y w h e re i t s m o u t h i s. D o w ’s Healthiest Profit Challenge assures growers planting Nexera hybrids they will generate higher profits than they would by growing any type of commodity canola, including InVigor, Roundup Ready or Clearfield varieties. Participating growers will seed up to a maximum of 80 acres each of Nexera and the commodity canola of their choice on the same field using the same agronomic practices. Dow will pay out any difference in profit plus the additional value of one bushel per acre if the commodity canola outperforms the Nexera hybrid. “We truly believe we can be the most profitable canola for a western Canadian farmer,” said Dzisiak. The incentive package for growing Nexera will differ by crusher and delivery window, but it will add up to a premium that will probably be more than $50 per tonne over commodity canola. “That’s more than $1 per bushel. That’s a very substantial increase,” said Dzisiak. He encouraged growers who want to plant hybrids to sign a contract soon because there is limited supply of hybrid seed and most seeding decisions will be made before Christmas. access=subscriber section=markets,none,none


China pork demand sweet access=subscriber section=markets,none,none




hicago nearby lean hog futures are 30 percent higher than at the same time last

year. The reasons are several, including a small herd and the tight supply of pork and competing beef. Strong exports are also a driver. Pork exports from the United States to the end of August, which is the latest number available, were running 18 percent ahead of last year by weight. Booming exports to China and Hong Kong, up 80 percent, are a big part of the picture. Canada’s pork industry is also doing well exporting to China, with tonnage doubling so far this year. The success will likely continue into 2012. A report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture attaché in Beijing forecasts that China’s pork imports in 2012 are expected to increase to 480,000 tonnes, up eight percent from 2011 and up 16 percent from 2010. Pork offal imports in 2012 are expected to increase 10 percent to more than 700,000 tonnes. Chinese domestic pork prices soared this year with the average price in July up 68 percent over July last year. Domestic production ran into dif-

ficulties in the past year. A period of weak hog prices in the first half of 2010 caused a number of producers to get out of the business. That was followed by unusually severe and persistent outbreaks of animal disease, such as foot-andmouth disease, swine blue ear disease (PRRS) and pig epidemic diarrhea among piglets in late 2010 and early 2011, the attaché said. Supply was down as demand steadily increased, leading to higher prices and a demand for imported pork. Better hog prices today and an attractive new subsidy ($15.50 per sow) from the Beijing government are expected to cause a four percent, or 1.97 million tonne, jump in pork production next year to 51.28 million tonnes. By way of comparison, that increase is about equal to all of Canada’s pork production. However, rising pork demand will outpace the production increase, leading to the need for increased imports. China will also need to import more feed grain and oilseeds to feed its growing pork industry, which is undergoing structural change. There is a big shift away from operations with three or four sows that were fed food waste. Instead, more pigs are being produced at big commercial operations that feed grain and oilseed meal rations. This helps to explain why groups such as the U.S. Grain Council are certain that China is about to become a major corn importer. It seems China’s growing demand for pork is sweet, not sour, for North American hog producers and grain farmers.

MARKETS CANFAX REPORT FED CATTLE LOWER Large volatility in cattle futures early in the week, driven by funds and speculators, pressured cash prices lower. Feeder steers averaged $108.94 per hundredweight, down $1.79, and heifers were $108.56, down $1.72. U.S. buyer inquiry was lighter and few cattle were sold to American packers. Live and dressed prices were comparable. The cash-to-futures basis narrowed by more than $3 to -$14.22. Sales volume of 16,286 head was down 13 percent from the previous week and six percent lower than last year. Not all of the week’s show list was sold. Weekly western Canadian fed cattle slaughter to Oct. 8 was 35,672 head, down 10 percent from the previous week. Weekly fed exports to Oct. 1 were down 15 percent to 9,735 head. Marketed fed cattle still have a three to four week delivery lag, but feedlot supply is dwindling. Cattle futures are anticipated to soften this week but cash prices could hold firm because the basis should seasonally improve.


WP LIVESTOCK REPORT calves. The 300-500 lb. average steer price has climbed $13-$14 over the past four weeks. As yearling volumes ease, many auctions have shifted attention to presorted and genetic influenced calf sales. Auction volumes totalled 40,125, up two percent from the previous week. Weekly feeder exports to Oct. 1 were only 510 head. Yearling marketings are becoming more regional, and quality and overall condition scores are dictating prices. Calf prices have been elastic. Marketings are anticipated to surge over the coming weeks, limiting prices.

BEEF RISES The U.S. Choice cutout on Oct. 14 was $185 US per cwt., up 59 cents from the previous week, and the

Select was $166.98, down $2.60. The spread between the two has increased rapidly in recent weeks and is exceptionally wide at $18.03. Part of the reason is that U.S. Wal-Mart stores are starting to add Choice beef cuts to their usual offering of Select. Weekly Canadian cutouts to Oct. 7 generally rose $3 Cdn. AAA and AA cutouts were $18-$21 higher than the same time last year. Montreal wholesale for delivery this week was about $4 higher to $202-$204.

Hope for a settlement of the Greek debt crisis and better than expected reports on the health of the U.S. economy lifted hopes for continued strong pork demand. Cash hog prices edged lower, but remained strong for this time of year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that U.S. pork exports from January to August were 3.3 billion pounds up from 2.75 billion last year. Iowa-southern Minnesota cash hogs delivered to plants slipped to $69 US per hundredweight from $70 Oct. 7. The cash U.S. pork carcass cut-out value closed at $98.71 Oct. 14, up from $97.65 Oct. 7. The U.S. federal weekly slaughter estimate was 2.32 million, down

BISON The Canadian Bison Association said grade A bulls in the desirable weight range were $3.85-$4 Cdn per lb. hot hanging weight. Grade A heifers were $3.80-$4. Animals older than 30 months and those outside the desirable weight range may be discounted. Slaughter cows and bulls averaged $2.80.

LAMBS EDGE HIGHER Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported 854 sheep and lambs and 23 goats traded Oct. 11. Well-finished light lambs sold at a premium, while all others sold steady to stronger. Sheep traded higher. Goats sold actively. access=subscriber section=markets,none,none

COW PRICES FALL Packer interest slowed. D1, D2 cows were $62-$73 to average $67.83 per cwt., down 98 cents. D3 cows were $52-$66 to average $60.61. Rail bids were steady at $130$135 per cwt. Butcher cows were generally $1 lower. While D1, D2 cows are $13.38 higher than last year at this time, the average butcher bull price is only $8.96 higher and dipping lower. Weekly non-fed exports to Oct. 1 totaled 3,218, down five percent from the previous week. Prices might weaken because nonfed volumes are anticipated to grow over the coming weeks.

CALF PRICES RISE The weaker Canadian dollar is supporting calf prices. Short keep steers and heifers were steady while 400-600 pound calves rose by $2-$6. Demand is unprecedented for light access=subscriber section=markets,none,none

Man. agricultural economy in hands of elected officials


t’s pretty hard to vote against something called the Save Lake Winnipeg Act. Saving anything, whether it’s money, water, small animals or hungry people, comes with a strong, positive political image. That kind of image can go a long way before and during an election campaign, which the people of Manitoba recently endured. Yet at least 14 Manitoba farm and commodity groups are hoping that the government can see beyond the act’s name and contemplate its implications. It was passed by Manitoba’s NDP government before the election, with support from the opposition Progressive Conservatives but without supporting regulations. The NDP was re-elected, but now that the silly season is over, perhaps the hype will die down and the government will take a measured and scientific approach to crafting the regulations. Save Lake Winnipeg has already taken a serious run at hog producers by essentially putting a moratorium on any expansion in the industry. Previously, the province’s environment act confined hog barn expansion or construction to certain areas listed in a schedule. After Save Lake Winnipeg was passed, the confinement was applied to every part of Manitoba. Any new or expanded hog barn now requires the equivalent of a sewage treatment plant, which is prohibitively expens i v e — a n d u n n e c e s s a r y . Ma nu re remains a better option than the highphosphorus synthetic fertilizer used on crops, but the act also bans manure spreading between November and April. Premier Greg Selinger singled out the hog industry for special mention when he rolled out the act. He said he would “stop hog manure from flowing into Lake Winnipeg.” It’s hard to fathom why the hammer fell first on hog producers, when hog barns are already strictly regulated across the province. A mega-head cattle feedlot is permissible without restriction, but hog farmers cannot add even a few sows under the new legislation.

In addition, hog barns create a small part of agricultural phosphorus; crop fertilization is by far the bigger source. That is partly what concerns Manitoba’s agricultural groups. If the government plans to blame Lake Winnipeg’s problems on farming, it could next turn its restrictive sights on crops and other livestock. But in fact, Lake Winnipeg is under stress from many angles. One study said 50 percent of the phosphorus creating the lake’s algae problem comes from outside Manitoba. That’s a wider watershed problem that involves all of the western prairies in the U.S. and Canada. Meanwhile, Manitoba municipalities are dumping their waste into creeks that feed into the lake. Agriculture is not the main issue, but this must be made clear to the government. Agricultural groups are united in seeing the hog industry regulations as the thin edge of the wedge. Indeed, the act’s passage put all of Manitoba’s largest farm organizations on the same page, which must be a historic event. Even the Manitoba chambers of commerce and Maple Leaf Foods joined in the objections, declaring the act detrimental to the provincial economy — and rightly so. If the Save Lake Winnipeg Act is not managed properly, it could significantly affect agriculture and agrifood in Manitoba, which together make up 9.5 percent of the province’s gross domestic product and 14 percent of employment. Unfortunately for farmers, almost all of the NDP government MLAs were elected within the perimeter highway surrounding Winnipeg. There is clearly a significant rural-urban divide in Manitoba. To his credit, the premier has said he will represent all Manitobans, not just city dwellers. This is a great opportunity to prove it — and save (there’s that word again) a vital part of the economy. There is time to get it right.

Parliamentary passage of wheat board bill to be ‘nasty, brutish and short’ NATIONAL VIEW



hen he published his political masterpiece Leviathan in 1651, the English political philosopher and commentator Thomas Hobbes coined a phrase for the ages. Life in his time (the English civil war and all that and before cell phones), he wrote, was “nasty, brutish and short.” How could he, 360 years ago, have

imagined the final political debate around the demise of the Canadian Wheat Board in a country that had yet to be formally created? Smart fellow. As outlined by the Conservative government this week, the final political debate about the fate of the 6 8 - y e a r- o l d w h e at a n d b a r l e y monopoly marketing agency will be nasty, brutish and short indeed. The bill must be passed by mid-December to get the new regime and all the necessary regulations in place by July 31, 2012. The Conservatives have given Parliament less than seven weeks to pass a bill that is complex, profound and controversial — an amazingly speedy passage in a political maze that often takes months or years to approve legislation. That is the short part.

The brutish part will be the Conservative tactics, cutting off debate at every stage, running roughshod over opposition rights, limiting public input into committee hearings and throttling debate. There is no other way to meet that December deadline. While the government has the right in Parliament to cut off debate, it does not have that power in committee or in the Senate. In the House of Commons agriculture committee, it will require Conservative chair Larry Miller to lean to his Conservative roots to stop opposition MPs from filibustering the way Conservative MPs did in the last Parliament when they were a minority, under the chair’s benign gaze. In the Senate, it will require the Conservative majority to flex its muscle to stop what is a traditional

right of the opposition to gab on as long as it wants. The nasty part will be the conflicting claims of the opposing sides. The Conservatives will insist they have a mandate from prairie farmers because they overwhelmingly supported the party in the May election. B e s i d e s , f a r m e r s h av e b e e n demanding marketing “freedom” for years, even though the main advocates — western wheat and barley growers — are splinter groups with small memberships, although with the powerful ear of the Conservative government. On the other side, CWB supporters and opposition MPs will insist that the majority of prairie farmers support the monopoly because the recent CWB plebiscite said so. But who are those voters? Are they

farmers trying to make a living from growing CWB grain or just dabblers, city folk or retirees who like to keep a finger in farming and have a permit book for their 30 acres of wheat? This week, CWB chair Allen Oberg said that is an irrelevant question. Anyone who grows grain and has delivered to the CWB has a stake in the future of the board whether they are big or small. Otherwise, federal votes would be weighted by how much income tax you pay, he argued. Expect the Conservatives to argue that board supporters tend to be the farmers least dependent on grain sales for their livelihood — the old, the small, the renter. That will be the nasty part — trying to decide who is a legitimate farmer in this toxic debate. access=subscriber section=opinion,none,none





Thank a farmer for filling your dinner plate Derrick Rozdeba, manager of integrated communications for Bayer CropScience, says farmers deserve thanks for their dedication to a complex industry



ave you ever thought about where your food comes from? I didn’t, until I started working in the agriculture industry nine years ago. I had a number of misconceptions about farming. I thought it was simple. You take a seed, you plant it, you watch it grow, you harvest it and then you sell the fruits of your labour. This is the process, but the complexities are enormous. There are endless circumstances that need to be evaluated and responded to, most of which the farmer has little control over. What other entrepreneur builds a business model without knowing what the selling price for his product will be when he brings it to market? Weather can make or break a season. Inside a short 120 day window, which is the average number of frost-free days in Canada, the grower must get his crop from seed to market, despite whatever unusual weather patterns may be in the cue. Today, farming is more science than art. A grower has to be a climatologist, agronomist, commodities futures expert, chemist, electrician, mechanical engineer, banker and troubleshooter. So why get into this business? In many cases, farmers were born into agriculture and just don’t know any-

thing else. They grew up on the farm and are the next generation of many generations of farmers. Ask them why they stay and you’ll hear about the freedom that comes with being a steward of the land. They take great pride in raising animals and crops to literally feed the world. Interestingly, most farmers have convinced their children that farming isn’t a viable career. As a result, a large percentage of farms are owned and operated by farmers in their 50s and older. Have you ever worried about the cost of food? Lost sleep about the price of your next loaf of bread? Probably not. We in the developed world take for granted a plentiful supply of safe, healthy and inexpensive food every day. How does this happen with so many other things continu-

ing to go up in price? Successful farmers have had to build a business model based on economies of scale: become large enough to employ massive equipment to reduce their overhead costs and use high tech seeds and input products to maximize crop yields. Technology has been the biggest advancement in agriculture in the last 20 years. GPS technology has created precision farming, which has reduced input costs. Biotech seeds have dramatically increased yields in corn, soybean and canola. Crop protection products have also become more selective and are used less because of the biotech crop systems that have been developed. This also means that growers must continually educate themselves on new technologies. While we all have

images of farmers sunbathing in Mexico all winter, in reality they are constantly going back to school to learn about new technologies and management skills. They use down time to assess global markets to determine their next year’s crops, decide what nutrients and crop protection products are required to ensure the best yields, manage their fixed costs of labour and equipment and take inventory of their financial capital and supplier relationships. All with the anticipation of what Mother Nature will do to help or hinder their business goals. It’s a thankless job. So the next time you see a farmer, give him or her a hug. Say thank you for the food that they put on your plate. It’s only because there’s so much on their plate that there’s so much on yours. access=subscriber section=opinion,none,none


Decision time: this or that, when and how much? HURSH ON AG



a r v e s t s e a s o n ha s b e e n replaced by decision making season. A large part of a farm’s success is determined by the decisions made through the winter. Unfortunately, it’s human nature to avoid some of the really big questions that face every operation. The combine has barely been put away and already retailers are asking about next year’s canola seed. Producers are urged to act quickly to get the most popular varieties. Canola seed marketing is in full swing with everybody bragging about top yields. Just page through this paper and look at all the ads.

Common cold develops one-two punch

For Nexera canola, the sales pitch is about returns per acre rather than the top yield. Producers are encouraged to consider the premiums offered by Nexera contractors. Some programs offer the ability to lock in a favourable basis level on fall delivery, which can be part of the attraction. There’s ever y indication that demand for omega 9 oil will continue to grow. There will have to be attractive returns to encourage additional acres. Although it’s still canola, in many ways it’s like a brand new cropping option. Decisions also need to be made about all the other cropping options. What do you plan to grow next year? Are you cleaning your own seed or upgrading to a newer variety? Are you growing a crop that you haven’t tried before? Corn and soybeans are being grown in more parts of Western Canada than ever before. And there should be a contracting opportunity for carinata, also known as Ethiopian mustard, which is in demand for jet biofuel.

Some producers keep their cropping mix simple with only two or three crops. Others try to adjust for market trends. In addition to securing seed, there are decisions to be made about prepurchasing other inputs, most notably fertilizer. Will buying your fertilizer this fall save you money? Most of the time fertilizer is less expensive in the fall, but that isn’t the case every year. Many producers don’t have the storage space for granular fertilizer purchases until some grain is sold. Of course, producers are also mulling over grain marketing decisions. The canola futures price was more than $570 a tonne in late August and early September. It had declined to around $520 by early October but improved a bit to around $540 by mid-October. Depending on when you sold, you might have garnered more than $12 a bushel or less than $11. That’s a huge difference and the market volatility is likely to continue in the months ahead. Producers subscribe to marketing

newsletters, talk to buyers and attend meetings to get information in the hope of making better marketing decisions. In the end, there’s still a lot of guesswork. Over the winter, many producers will be dealing with big picture decisions such as major equipment purchases and the acquisition of more land either through renting or buying. Unfortunately, some of the really big questions are too often postponed or ignored: • Is your business partner/spouse on the same page as you on farm related planning? • Do you have a human resources plan for when an older family member or long-time employee is no longer able or interested in working? • What is your succession plan? Cropping and marketing decisions tend to take priority, but winter is also a great time to work on the big decisions. Kevin Hursh is an agricultural journalist, consultant and farmer.

ave you had this exciting autumn cold yet? Every day, it’s a new and wonderful symptom. First, you can enjoy the fiery sensation that your sinuses are burning. Then, embrace the feeling of being high on some crazy unnamed drug that fogs your brain and freezes your body. No need for any medication. Your brain is doing it for you, all by itself. Soon after, there’s the terrific feeling that you are both breathing in and swallowing razor blades. The really fun part of ingesting razor blades is that it is followed by a complete and utter inability to speak. No talking to colleagues, family, friends or folks in the drug store. It’s an entire day off from talking. Then your sinuses begin to flood, right in front of all your colleagues, which is true symptomatic bliss. It’s so nice that you can spend some time in bed, too, but be sure to make a list. Soft tissues? Check. Gooey Vaseline for red nose? Check. Yummy cough syrup? Mind-altering sinus medication? Warm bed socks? Check, check and check. Aaah. Cozy up; it’s time to sleep. Well, that was all fun. It was a lovely cold, and I will miss it now that it’s over … but wait … more razor blades? More goop in the sinuses? Wow. I get to enjoy it all over again. Are the common cold gods kidding me? I get to do this twice? Mother Nature, or whoever is in charge, blew it when she created the cold. What good could it possibly do? Massage the immune system? Remind us that a cold is at least better than the flu? If you want to enjoy your very own cold, it’s easy to do. Here’s what I recommend. Shake hands with everyone you meet, then rub your eyes. Kiss people on the lips (that’ll shock ’em) instead of on the cheek. Work 12 hour days and try not to get any significant sleep. Hang out at schools, hospitals and gyms. Get on a plane for at least three hours, especially one with 10 or more passengers who are snorting, honking and coughing. Inhale as much leaf and grain dust as possible. That should do the trick. access=subscriber section=opinion,none,none

CHARITABLE DONATIONS To the Editor: Permit a comment on my dear friend Joyce Sasse’s column (WP, Sept.8) on giving. For centuries charity was handled by the church under the guidelines of the widow’s mite (the spirit of giving is more important than the size of the gift) and the parable of the good Samaritan (helping anyone in need and expecting nothing in return). Now we’re in the 21st century. Hun-

dreds of agencies, with permanent offices and professional staff, clamour for our charity dollars. Giving has become big business. How many of our mites go into fundraising? So we encouraged direct charity. Pastor Sasse served a church in our community of Gleichen (the main tow n for the Siksika Blackfoot reserve) and with us experienced the requests for handouts on the streets. We often took the panhandler into a store and purchased bread and meat for him, rather than just flipping him a coin, which we suspected would access=subscriber section=letters,none,none

likely be spent for something else. She may not have experienced the frustration of having this same food purchase being offered for sale at a discount in the back alley. I experienced this same problem in Zimbabwe. In previous years charity food came in trucks or planes with workers tossing out bags of food. This procedure damaged local morale and undermined local economic balances. It didn’t take long for recipients to ask, why should I work … in the hot sun when I can wait in the shade until another truck rolls in loaded with food? So we pushed the idea of “teaching a man to fish rather than handing him a fish.” The Canadian Foodgrains Bank monitors all donations — many are given in return for work on roads or ditches, extensive agriculture training is offered to farmers to improve their production, storage facilities are built and the re-sale of any donated grain is forbidden. Pastor Sasse advises to let your conscience be your guide, but our conscience is a product of teaching. Charity without conscience destroys incentive and creates dependency. Our marching orders were given by St. Matthew’s final words: “go … to all nations … teaching them.” It goes hand in hand with giving. Vern Hoff, Gleichen, Alta.

I would like to ask the proponents of the CWB just one simple question. Why are Ontario and Quebec not under the wonderful umbrella of the CWB? I wonder if it is because it is an institution that jails its farmers and keeps their pockets empty. It is very strange that throughout this whole debate there has not been one peep out of them, who usually want to have what’s coming to them and a little more for good measure. As a result, the acronym CWB becomes a misnomer. It should be called the Prairie Provinces Wheat Board or PPWB, so why don’t we just change it to CWBRIP? Joseph Hofer, High Bluff, Man.

To the Editor: It is interesting to follow the developments in Western Canada in regards to the Canadian Wheat Board. Fifteen years ago we were dealing with the same concerns. In Ontario, it was never our intent to get rid of the Ontario Wheat Producers Marketing Boards, no more than anyone is trying to get rid of the CWB. Our goal was market access to those farmers who felt they could market their own wheat more efficiently than the board was doing it for them. Fortunately the board relented and opened up a small portion of the market directly to the farmers. That success led to the complete deregulation of the market control, which is where we are today. At our annual meeting last week,

the board requested that in 2010, the pool run by the board handled one percent of the Ontario wheat, and direct marketing contracts through the board handled another three percent. Yes, I question if it is justified to maintain the pool for only one percent of the wheat, but I also consider it a small price to pay for the privilege of selling the other 99 percent the way we like. In the last 10 years the wheat acreage in Ontario has increased by nearly 50 percent, as further support that the change has been a good thing. Having three viable crops for our farms has also been good for corn and soy, as a rotation option. To our farmer friends in the West: may you look back a few years from now and have the same contentment with growing wheat as we do in Ontario today. Harry Buurma, Watford, Ont.

SEPARATE RULES To the Editor: For the last 60 years I have not sold wheat or grain. As such I probably should not be concerned and should not have a vote on the Canadian Wheat Board. As an observer listening to the reports of some farmers, who seem to consider marketing through the CWB such a bonus, I wonder how the eastern Canadian wheat growers stay in business without being compelled to sell through the CWB. I also wonder why there is a separate rule for the eastern farmers from the prairie provinces. Orrin Hart, Claresholm, Alta.

BROKEN PROMISE To the Editor: Just when a federally inspected beef slaughter plant was weeks from construction, the federal Conservatives slammed the door on Manitoba beef producers: $10 million that was promised under the Tories’ action plan in 2009 was withdrawn and given to Hylife Corp. to upgrade a hog slaughter plant. Federal ag minister Gerry Ritz blamed the beef plant’s business plan, even though a major bank thought a business model based on niche products and toll processing was good enough to commit over $18 million. One begins to wonder if the broken promise to beef producers has more to do with politics than business sense. The proposed plant was the direct result of a pool of capital collected and invested by the Manitoba Cattle Enhancement Council. The provincial NDP established the council in 2006 and matched producer check-off dollars to fund enhanced slaughter capacity in Manitoba. It could have been a huge success, but the federal Tories didn’t want the plant to be built and succeed. At the same time as they were laying plans to dismantle the producerowned Canadian Wheat Board, the Tories were already planning to take away market opportunities from



Manitoba cattlemen. It appears that the Conservatives are all about lining the pockets of corporations at the expense of farmers and ranchers.

Affirmation of the positive things in life a welcome thing

Peter Gulak, Gilbert Plains, Man.



CWB BENEFIT To the Editor: The people who claim a voluntary Canadian Wheat Board will work fine are dreaming in Technicolour. They need to know some history. I remember when I was a boy during the 1930s and my father needed some cash. So he had to sell some wheat. Between him and his brother, my uncle, they hauled enough wheat to the elevator for a car load. My father, who was a firm supporter of CWB, listened to the daily grain price quotes for some time, trying to get the best price he could. Finally, one day he decided to sell, thinking it was the best he could get. Within days, the price went up. How was he to know? Somebody else got the money he and my uncle should have had. My father and I watched the train engine as it hooked that car load onto the train and hauled it away. Some years later, my father, Joseph W. Burton, was elected a member of Parliament in a byelection and took a constituency away from the governing party. He campaigned for a full Canadian Wheat Board. It was hardly a month later that the government, having gotten the message, changed the Canadian Wheat Board into a single desk agency and we have had it ever since. Benefits to farmers have been in the billions of dollars. Don’t let them take it away from us.

We live in a society where the news all seems to be threatening. We see

how our home values are diminishing and our pension savings are shrinking. There is word about gover nm ents being overthrow n and trade cycles that have slowed to nothing. We can’t help but wonder what the future holds. We are filled with doubt. In the midst of all this, when we go to church, when we listen to dramatic presentations, when we read our morning paper, don’t we have the right to expect more public affirmation? Our spirits need to be lifted so

we can celebrate glimmers of hope. We need to hear the preacher talk about what it meant for the bruised and broken victim to be cared for. We need to attend a performance that helps us laugh at life’s foibles and encourages us to look for the good. We need to see a few headlines that carry stories of positive things that are happening. In these times, we possibly even need to make a practice of being positive, of affirming the good that people do, of seeing the potential they aspire to bring to life. Affirmation is a good thing.

I would like to point out to all those Conservative MPs who were elected in the place of Liberal MPs who failed to reflect the wishes of the farming community to abolish the long gun registry in the last election, that they are in the same position as the Liberals were with regards to the Canadian Wheat Board. The grain farmers have told you by a vote of 62 percent to 32 percent that they want to retain the wheat board. If you blindly and stubbornly go ahead and abolish the wheat board, these same farmers will remember your disregard of their wishes and vote you out of office in the next election. Maybe it’s time to listen to your constituents and not the large grain trading companies who are waiting to take millions out of the pockets of the farmers. Look south where without billions in subsidies grain farmers would join thousands of dairy farmers forced out of dairying by low returns due to large conglomerates taking the profits which should go to the farmers. Farmers, phone, write or e-mail your MPs. Tell them what your wishes are with regards to the wheat board. You can bet the 32 percent against the board are. These 32 percent against, and the Conservatives, are counting on you being so busy that you don’t contact them. Take the time, it’s your wheat board.

Edmonton technology firm targets antibiotic residue tests access=subscriber section=news,none,none


An Edmonton-based technology firm will receive more than $350,000 from the federal government to develop a device that will detect antibiotic residue in milk. Funding to SciMed Technologies was announced Oct. 14 by Edmonton MP Mike Lake on behalf of federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz. A news release stemming from the announcement indicates the device

will allow quick on-farm testing of milk. Strict quality standards govern milk quality and antibiotic residue, and it is expected the new technology will further safeguard high quality standards. SciMed Technologies president Rajan Gupta said the funded project involves developing an immunobiochip. Funding will come through the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program.





U.S. hog deal with South Korea bad news for Canadian exports Canada negotiating since 2005 | Pork council urges Ottawa to get back to table BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

The U.S. Congress has approved a free trade agreement with South Korea that could dramatically increase American pork exports to the Asian country. The agreement is good for American hog producers, but Canadian pork exports to Korea, worth $100 to $150 million annually, are now in jeopardy, says the executive director of the Canadian Pork Council. “The interest of Korean buyers in Canadian pork is starting to decline … because they see that in a few months Canada will be a second class supplier,” said Martin Rice. “They (U.S. pork exporters) would have a five percent (price) advantage fairly quickly…. That essentially shuts us out.” The U.S. Congress voted Oct. 12 in favour of free trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama, following several years of negotiations. The American hog sector has championed a free trade arrangement with South Korea for years. “These trade agreements will be a boon for U.S. pork producers and for the U.S. economy and jobs,” Doug Wolf, National Pork Producers Council president and a hog producer from Lancaster, Wisconsin, told the Des Moines Register. “Passage of these FTAs is one of the greatest victories ever for the U.S. pork industry.” The free trade agreement phases out Korea’s 20 percent tariffs on imported pork over a 10-year period. Iowa State University economist Dermot Hayes has estimated the free trade deals with Korea, Colombia and Panama would increase U.S. pork exports by $770 million. The deal means South Korea now has free trade agreements with the United States, the European Union and Chile, Canada’s three biggest competitors in the Korean pork market. The Canadian pork industry issued a news release in January urging the federal government to resume free trade negotiations with Korea. Otherwise, Korea’s high tariffs would shut Canada out of a rich market for pork products. “With a population of 50 million people and the high value for the items sold there, such as chilled shoulder butts and bellies, (loss of

the Korean market) is significant enough to have a major impact on Canadian hog prices and jobs in both the farming and processing sectors,” said Canadian Pork International president Edouard Asnong. Canada began trade negotiations with Korea in 2005, before the Americans and Europeans initiated their deals. It hasn’t sat down with the Koreans at the negotiation table for a

couple of years but the framework for a deal is basically in place, Rice said. “The negotiations with Korea are so close to being done…. I believe that conditions are such that Canada could resume negotiations with Korea and finish off a deal very quickly,” he said. “Probably one more meeting … and they could do it.” Two obstacles remain: Korea’s post-BSE ban on Canadian beef and

The U.S. export deal could steal market share from Canada. | the objections of Canada’s auto industry. Despite many years of frustration with Korea, Rice believes Canada’s beef industry is willing to play ball and work out a deal. “They haven’t quite finished it (an agreement on beef ), but the cattlemen’s association has shown interest in having the two things run simultaneously. Finish the deal with Korea


and fix the beef.” He said the federal government can’t procrastinate because American hog producers now hold a significant advantage in the Korean market. “The U.S. is calling its deal with Korea its most important trade deal since NAFTA,” Rice said. “I think Canada has to look at it from the same context.”

Everyone is smiling over the southern Alberta sugar beet harvest. Gerald Third, executive director of the Alberta Sugar Beet Growers, said Oct. 11 that harvest is underway and both tonnage and sugar content are higher than expected. Harvest began earlier this fall than growers had initially expected after a cold and wet spring slowed planting progress. Hot weather and nearly ideal growing conditions over the summer brought the beets along, said Third. “This (harvest) kind of bolted out of the gate and is going extremely well.” Sugar content of more than 18 per-

The Lantic sugar factory in Taber, which processes all Alberta sugar beets, is fully operational and engaged in the beet slice, said Third. Growers are hauling to the eight piling stations available and those close to Taber haul directly to the factory site. Beets will be hauled throughout the fall and winter from the piling stations to the factory. The beet growers’ contract with Lantic this year called for 34,400 acres of beets.

Corn heads to China


Analysts expect more sales whenever corn prices drop WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — China has made its first large purchase of U.S. corn in months, and a trade group sees the possibility of mammoth imports by the world’s largest agricultural consumer. The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced the 900,000 tonne sale by private importers Oct. 13 and said an additional 292,110 tonnes were sold for delivery to “unknown destinations.” Traders in Chicago said the sales formed part of a reported 1.5 million tonnes booked by China during the week. China reportedly ordered U.S. or Argentine corn. It was the second-largest corn sale attributed to China and the seventhlargest sale on USDA records. Rumours of large sales to China have jolted grain markets twice this year. In March, China was rumoured to be behind a sale of 1.25 million tonnes to an unidentified buyer and in June was believed to be the unidentified buyer of 1.14 million tonnes. The USDA forecast China corn imports of two million tonnes in the marketing year that opened Sept. 1, but the U.S. Grains Council said China would need to import five to 10 million tonnes of corn during 201112. That volume would be dramati-


cally larger than its annual imports of one million tonnes in the past two years. China is second to the United States as a corn grower. It is the world’s largest importer of cotton and soybeans and buys half of the soybeans on the world market. With a growing population experiencing rising incomes, China is producing more meat, from herds fattened on corn. China is expected to become a steady and large importer at some point, analysts say. The USDA recently forecast a record Chinese corn crop of 182 million tonnes, up five percent from its previous estimate. All the additional corn will be used as feed, said the USDA, resulting in a slight drawdown in Chinese reserves. The department said the higher forecast was drawn from weather data, crop tours and early forecasts by Chinese officials. The U.S. Grains Council said its estimates of large imports and of a 167 million tonne Chinese crop were based on its own crop tour. “In spite of the current economic pressures, there is evidence of strong and increasing demand for higher quality protein diets,” said Don Hutchens, executive director of the Nebraska Corn Board, who was on the U.S. Grains Council China tour.

China recently bought 292,000 tonnes of U.S. corn. | FILE PHOTO Tom Dorr, president of the U.S. Grains Council, said China’s domestic use of corn has exceeded production in six of the last seven years. “This is clearly why China has emerged as a buyer of corn,” he said. “If our production estimates are correct, they will once again exceed (production) by approximately 3.5 tonnes.” Analysts think China will be in the market again when prices dip. “China’s been buying corn on big price breaks. If we continue to see corn prices drop off, maybe down to the $5.50 (per bushel) level, we could see another massive import tender,” said Terry Reilly, analyst with Citigroup. Before the latest sales, China had bought 904,000 tonnes of U.S. corn for 2011-12 delivery. access=subscriber section=markets,news,none

Farm subsidy cuts to save $23 billion over decade A revenue assistance plan to shield against losses has been proposed to replace direct subsidies

Rob Lippert rounds up two stray bulls in a field west of Longview, Alta., on the OH Ranch. |


It takes a lot of time to milk over 400 cows. So the Schoutens started to ‘think outside the barn’.

Arnold and Elaine Schouten run one of Ontario’s top producing dairy herds, milking over 400 Holstein cows daily. That’s a lot of energy spent on a repetitive, time-consuming task. With the next generation now becoming involved, the Schoutens have invested in their future by purchasing 10 robotic milking systems, leaving their hands free to run the rest of their operation. That’s the kind of ‘doing things a bit differently’ that farming demands in order to stay competitive. And it’s where Scotiabank can help, with innovative products and lending that can give you access to the funds you need, when you need them. To learn more, contact your branch today or visit

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — U.S. farm subsidy cuts of $23 billion over 10 years would be tied to the creation of a new crop subsidy system. The proposal, which is being discussed by agriculture committee leaders in Congress, would end the $5 billion a year direct payment subsidy. It would endorse a revenueassistance program to shield growers from “shallow losses” from poor yields or low market prices that would be the new basis for the U.S. farm program. Leaders of the House and Senate agriculture committees were expected to outline the plan in a letter to a 12-member panel that is charged with finding $1.2 trillion in government-wide cuts. Two lobbyists and a congressional staff worker cited $23 billion as the target for agricultural savings over a decade. Committee aides said discussions were ongoing but cautioned there was no firm agreement. With cuts all but certain, some farm groups have offered to scrap the direct payment, which is disbursed regardless of need. They would direct part of the $5 billion to deficit reduction and spend the rest on a reformed farm program. Some of the proposals would end all traditional crop subsidies. The three most frequently cited areas for agricultural cuts are crop subsidies, land stewardship programs and the federally subsidized crop insurance program. Details that have yet to be determined include whether revenue assistance should be keyed to state, regional or farm income, if it should be a “whole farm” approach or available crop by crop, if the “base acres” eligible for subsidy should be revised and whether subsidies should be paid on planted or harvested area. Each of those points could greatly change the cost and appeal of the program. Farm income would drop marginally if the direct payment ended, although an agricultural boom that began in 2006 has boosted overall farm income to record levels. Some lawmakers say land stewardship and public nutrition programs, such as food stamps, should be cut alongside farm subsidies because all are part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Cuts in land stewardship could push some farmland out of long-term set-asides and back into crop production. The American Farm Bureau Federation, the largest U.S. farm group, has suggested crop supports, nutrition and stewardship programs share equally in the cuts. The budget cutting committee has until Nov. 23 to present a package and Congress must adopt the plan by Dec. 23 or automatic spending cuts will come into force. access=subscriber section=news,none,none



Due to a shortage of barn space, heavy horse shows will no longer be held at Canadian Western Agribition in Regina. |




Tight Agribition schedule forces end to draft horse show now with the facilities we’ve got it just isn’t working,” he said. In a letter to the draft horse industry, Hadland noted that Agribition and the stakeholders reached several conclusions about the show’s future. The prize money offered to competitors would have to be enhanced to have a “reputable” show. “This would attract hitches from across the industry, including the U.S.A.,” said the letter. “These additional entries would add to the excitement and marketability of the event during Agribition. With additional prize money and the attraction of this to the industry, there would be an opportunity to add

back much needed prestige to the CWA draft horse show.” The letter notes all draft horse classes must be held within the show dates to gain that prestige, and that the NAERIC sale requires a wellattended and reputable hitch show to succeed. “Until finances, facilities and time in the schedule allows, the CWA draft horse show is being suspended,” said the letter. Agribition lost more than $200,000 in 2010. Draft horses have been part of Agribition since the show began 40 years ago. Hadland said visitors will still be able to see the large horses through-


out the week. One operation has been selected to host daily hitch demonstrations. The horse pulls will also continue. Blackstock said the lack of a show this year might lead to something good. “This may ultimately help jolt the draft world into realizing that we have to provide entertainment and educational value to the public at large, not just compete within our little community of interest.” About 240 horses were entered in the show last year, including those entered in Belgian, Clydesdale and Percheron line classes, hitches and horse pulls.

EARLY BIRD SALE Buy Early, Save More! OCTOBER NOVEMBER DECEMBER Event ends December 31, 2011


There will be no draft horse show at Canadian Western Agribition this fall. An April decision by the board of directors to suspend the event also means the North American Equine Ranching Informatin Council draft horse classic sale and futurity is moving after 10 years in Regina to the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair in Brandon next March. Saskatchewan Draft Horse Association president Janet Blackstock said the province’s draft horse industry is disappointed, but exhibitors had

seen the move coming. The industry and Agribition had been discussing the show’s future for a while. “The draft horse show has been crowded out by other events to the point that last year our show ran for two or three days before Agribition officially opened and we were all done by Tuesday noon,” Blackstock said in an e-mail. Many of the show classes were done early in the day before the crowds appeared, she added. Agribition president Bryan Hadland said draft horses could never be accommodated within the show schedule, mainly because of space. “I’m not saying it’s dead, but right









Researcher honoured for work in ethology Industry expert focuses on improving the life of animals

Researcher Harold Gonyou explains to graduate student Brandy Street that pigs are less fearful if humans squat rather than stand in the pen. | PRAIRIE SWINE CENTRE PHOTO However, these days he is spending much of his time golfing, gardening, volunteering and travelling. He said research has been the most rewarding part of his career, but he also enjoyed working with graduate students and helping them develop their critical thinking. Swine centre president Lee Whittington believes Gonyou’s recent award is significant because it is a recognition by the ethology community that his “work has had real and lasting impact on the commercial pork industry.” W h i t t i n g t o n re m e m b e r s t h e impact Gonyou’s research into feeder designs had on the industry in the 1990s.

Viterra’s extensive elevator netwo rk, coupled with access to interna tional food processing companies, provides year round market opportunities . It’s what growers need to succeed. See you r Viterra facilityy today or visitt vvite ca.

He said Gonyou’s study of feeder designs identified factors that affected pig production if the feeder was not properly designed. Gonyou then suggested ways to modify pigs’ feeding environment to improve the feed intake of pigs. Whittington said feeder manufacturers took note of Gonyou’s research and believes it helped promote the use of the wet dry feeder design that has become the standard for feeders in the pork industry. He also believes Gonyou has foreseen the needs of the pork industry throughout his carrier. Whittington said the industry often consults him on sow housing issues. Gonyou was also a professor at the

University of Illinois, president of the International Society for Applied Ethology, editor-in-chief for the scientific journal Applied Animal Behaviour Science and served on committees for the Canadian Pork Council and National Pork Board in the United States. In 2009, Gonyou received the Award for Technical Innovation Enhancing Production of Safe and Affordable Food from the Canadian Society of Animal Science. His recent research projects include feeder and waterer design, group housing of sows, gestation stall design, space allowance of pigs, large groups of grow-finish pigs and pig handling.


Harold Gonyou has filled many roles in his professional life and is no stranger to recognition for his contributions to agriculture. His most recent recognition came in August when he was inducted as an Honorary Fellow of the International Society for Applied Ethology. The retired Prairie Swine Centre researcher’s induction marks only the 16th time that the award has been presented to a person in his field in the society’s 45 years. The ISAE focuses on the welfare and behaviour of domesticated and confined animals. Most of Gonyou’s work has been on the social behaviour of farm animals and in recent years has focused more sharply on the study of sows in group housing. He said little work was being done on animal behaviour in North America when he started in the field of ethology. His interest in animals began as a child growing up on a mixed farm in western Ontario. He remembers being curious about the farm’s cattle, pigs, sheep and horses. Majoring in animal science at the

University of Guelph was a natural choice because of this interest and familiarity with farm animals. After completing his undergraduate studies in 1974, he pursued a masters degree at the University of Alberta. Once again, his interest in animals played a significant role in his choice to focus on the behavioural and physiological responses of feedlot cattle to winter conditions. Gonyou also studied the ways feedlot bulls responded to winter conditions for his PhD thesis at the University of Saskatchewan. Gonyou has been working at the Saskatoon centre part time since his retirement, but he still keeps busy with work in ethology. He works in his office at the centre an average of four hours per week and assists three graduate students and two post doctoral students with research projects. In addition, he will conduct five lectures in animal behaviour at the centre this fall. Gonyou is also committed to writing articles focusing on group housing of sows for the centre over the next two years. “I have enjoyed my career a great deal,” said Gonyou as he reflected on his long career in animal agriculture.

BRUSSELS, Belgium (Reuters) — European ethanol producers have broken ranks and urged policymakers to introduce rules on the indirect climate impacts of biofuels that distinguish between “good and bad biofuel pathways.” The call is the first sign of a split within the European Union biofuel industry on the controversial issue of indirect land use change (ILUC), which threatens to undermine the green credentials of some biofuel because of their role in diverting food into fuel tanks. In a letter to the EU’s top climate and energy officials, ethanol industry body ePure said it backs the introduction of EU rules that directly address ILUC. A direct approach that penalizes crop-specific biofuel for their indirect side effects could wipe out much of Europe’s $17.3 billion biodiesel sector. “EPure will support a policy that … differentiates between good and bad biofuel pathways (and) addresses ILUC directly,” said the letter sent to EU energy chief Guenther Oettinger and climate chief Connie Hedegaard in July. ILUC states that if food crops are diverted to biofuel production, those missing tonnes of food must be grown elsewhere to avoid increasing global hunger. If the crops to make up the shortfall are grown on new farmland created by cutting down rainforests or draining peat land, this can release enough climate-warming emissions to cancel out any theoretical emission savings from biofuels. Four draft EU studies showed earlier this year that biodiesel produced from European rapeseed, Asian palm oil and South American soy beans all have a bigger overall climate impact than normal diesel when ILUC emissions are taken into account. By contrast, the studies found that ILUC emissions were much lower for ethanol produced from corn, wheat and sugar cane, as well as next-generation biofuel produced from non-food sources such as straw and other farm residues. “It is encouraging to see that companies that make better biofuels are starting to recognize that a scientifically credible biofuels policy can actually help them instead of harm them,” said Nusa Urbancic of green transport campaigners T&E. The European Commission is debating how to address ILUC within its target to increase biofuel use to 10 percent of all road fuel by 2020 from less than three percent now. If EU rules penalize individual biofuels for their specific ILUC emissions, ePure members such as Spanish ethanol producer Abengoa and Danish enzymes producer Novozymes stand to benefit at the expense of biodiesel producers. Internal minutes of a meeting between Oettinger and Hedegaard in July suggested that the commission was planning to delay direct rules on ILUC in favour of an indirect approach that penalizes all biofuel equally.





Search for healthy breakfast prompts dairy’s new product line Flavoured yogurt and drinks | Technology enables couple to expand and explore new venture BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

LACOMBE, Alta. — New ventures and new technology have proven vital to the success of this family operated dairy farm near Lacombe. Hennie Bos and spouse Tinie Eilers added a yogurt making operation in 1996 to the dairy farm they established in 1994 when they immigrated to Canada from Holland. Now up to 15 percent of Bles-Wold Dairy’s milk production from 270 cows is used for yogurt products that are distributed in 110 stores. The rest enters the Alberta milk system. Bos is chair of the Alberta Milk Board and also serves on the Dairy Farmers of Canada board. The positions keep him abreast of industry developments. Bos and Eilers grew up on dairy farms but moved to Canada with their two children, Martine and Gerard, in a search for space, challenge and opportunity. Their first stop was Ontario, and then they visited Alberta. “We stopped looking. This was it,” said Bos.


A sound older home, outbuildings, 450 acres of productive farmland and easy access to Highway 2 determined their choice of location. The pair saluted their Dutch roots by naming their dairy after their two hometowns, Blesdijke and Steenwijkerwold. Eilers started making yogurt when their daughter, Martine, developed diabetes. “We couldn’t find a proper, tasty breakfast to give her before school,” said Bos. “It all started from there.” Eilers gave some of her kitchenmade yogurt to neighbours, “and all of a sudden there was a demand,” Bos said. They explored ideas for expansion

and became Alberta’s first licensed farm yogurt processing operation. A red barn, prominent in their logo, was fitted for the yogurt operation and now employs six people. A yogurt drink in mango and raspberry flavours was recently launched. The product line also includes various sizes of yogurt in 10 flavours, although Eilers said plain remains most popular, followed by French vanilla. The products have no artificial additives. Yogurt is made twice a week after stores place their orders, said Eilers. This eliminates returned product. Delivery provided by Bles-Wold keeps the operation in touch with customers. “Quality is the most important thing, but service is also important to us,” said Bos. Eilers said she enjoys the work. “The fun part for me is working with a good team. They are very inspiring and motivated.” Bles-Wold recently expanded to 270 cows from 220 and has room to grow to 350 if conditions are right. Half the herd is Holstein and the other half has Fleckvieh influence

because Bos likes the additional fleshiness and beef quality of the Fleckvieh line. The cows move into milk production easily and the beefiness gives him a higher price for calves. The cows are milked for six to seven years. Bles-Wold has a double 10 parallel milking parlour where cows are milked three times a day. It also has added two voluntary milking systems on the other side of the barn, in which cows enter computerized units at will to be milked on their own choice of schedule. The Lely system is fully computerized and provides data on milk volume per teat and per cow, milk temperature, animal weight, total milk yield and feed consumed while in the stall. Bos said the cows like to be milked 3.6 times per day on average. One cow enters the milker 20 times per day, seeking the supplement that is offered to attract cows into the stall. He said the voluntary milking system is part of a plan to reduce workload. His daughter and son-in-law, Martine and Ben Varekamp, are


interested in taking over the operation but labour is always an issue. “To keep the younger generation in farming, you have to find ways to reduce the workload,” he said. He is generally pleased with the new system but maintenance is key so cows can be milked regularly. “There’s more to it than I thought there would be,” he said. “I’m not saying there are problems but there’s more maintenance than I thought there would be. You have to stay on top of it.”

Sclerotinia the hard way. Sclerotinia is a costly disease for canola growers. Provincial disease surveys* indicate that 82% of prairie acres are affected by it. Losses can easily top $30 per acre... almost $5000 per quarter section. Spraying to control sclerotinia is expensive and uncertain because it depends on critical timing.

The dairy produces a variety of flavoured yogurt. The farm-made products are distributed to Alberta stores. A yogurt drink in two flavours was recently introduced. FAR LEFT: The collars on cows allow computers in the voluntary milking system to identify individual animals when they enter the milking stall. Computers also monitor chewing, which is an indication of rumen activity and digestion. Variations in pattern can provide early indications of health problems so quick action can be taken.

The farm grows much of its own feed and buys some from neighbours as needed. Bos and Eilers have developed a mission statement for their operation that they post on their website: “To provide a comfortable and fun environment for the animals, the employees and owners.” So far, so good.

Or the easy way. There’s a simple, certain and effective way to limit these losses. Plant canola seed with the Pioneer Protector® Sclerotinia trait. It puts your first line of defense against this costly disease right into the seed, to protect your yield potential through to harvest. Control sclerotinia the easy way: Pioneer Protector. *Average number based on 88% affected in Manitoba, 92% in Saskatchewan and 64% in Alberta. Results from the Provincial Disease Surveys, 2010. Field results show that Pioneer Protector ® Sclerotinia resistance can reduce the incidence of sclerotinia in a canola crop by over 50%. Individual results may vary. Depending on environmental and agronomic conditions, growers planting Pioneer Protector Sclerotinia resistant hybrids may still require a fungicide application to manage sclerotinia in their crop.

Life’s no longer a peach for plum pox virus Gene pinpointed | Researchers work to mutate the peach gene that the virus feeds on BY JEFFREY CARTER FREELANCE WRITER

LONDON, Ont. — Ontario researchers are getting closer to finding an answer to a disease that has dogged plum, peach, nectarine and apricot growers for more than a century. Aiming Wang and his associates at the Southern Crop and Food Research Centre have already developed a transgenic plum variety resistant to the plum pox virus. He’s now using more conventional means to develop the same resistance in peaches. “I think we are the leader in the world in this area,” he said. “We have already identified the peach gene (the virus needs).” Plant viruses depend upon genetic material within their hosts to replicate themselves. Wang and his team embarked on a kind of fishing trip using a virus gene as bait to find an appropriate gene, one of about 40,000 in peach trees. It’s a complex process, one that required nearly four years of effort. The next step is to mutate the peach gene so that the virus can no longer

Aiming Wang heads a research team that includes Mimmie Lu, left, at the Southern Crop and Food Research Centre in London, Ont. | JEFFREY CARTER PHOTO use it. That may take another two or three years, Wang said. The technique involves chemically treating peach shoots to induce mutagenesis. The same type of mutations occur naturally through the exposure of plants to ultraviolet radiation, Wang said. “It’s difficult for people to accept genetically modified food, so we needed a way to develop a peach

mutant population but without GM.” Researchers will then use a screening process to identify the appropriate resistant peach variant. A new resistant peach variety can then be propagated and evaluated for other traits, such as yield and quality. That’s when plant breeders will step in to develop other resistant peach varieties. Plum pox virus was identified in

Europe more than a century ago. The disease has since become a problem that orchardists simply live with. In Spain, for example, peaches and other susceptible tree fruit crops are regularly established in new locations. Orchards are abandoned once the virus arrives and spreads. Resistant varieties would make it possible to establish permanent orchards.

A low incidence of the virus exists in the United States and Japan. All trees are removed when it’s detected. Wang said Canada doesn’t have that luxury, given the few areas where peach, plum, nectarine and apricots can be grown. The virus has become endemic to Ontario’s Niagara region. Aphids spread the virus through the transport of infected plant material. There is no cure.

Bleeding calf syndrome linked to diarrhea vaccine Bovine viral diarrhea virus | Antibodies passed to a newborn calf through its mother’s colostrum proceed to destroy its blood cells BY MARGARET EVANS FREELANCE WRITER

LINDELL BEACH, B.C. —Something strange started happening to newborn beef and dairy calves in Europe four years ago. They had low blood cell counts, their bone marrow was depleted and their platelets were destroyed. As a result, the animals’ blood clotting ability failed and they bled spontaneously from their nostrils, rectum, mouth and tagging and injection sites. There would be bruising on the gums and around the eyes, while blood shed in the feces indicated internal bleeding. The condition was usually fatal, at a death rate of 95 percent, and calves

would die within weeks of birth. The condition became known as bleeding calf syndrome, or bovine neonatal pancytopenia (BNP). The syndrome was first detected in Germany in 2007, although it may have shown up in Belgium in 2006, and then reported in England, Scotland, Wales, Belgium, France and the Netherlands. Antimicrobials, clotting agents, blood transfusions and supportive treatment didn’t work, and the cause remained a mystery until recent research found a link between a vaccine used on cows against bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) and bleeding calf syndrome. “All in all, BNP is a rare disease,” said Till Ruemenapf, a professor with the

Justus Liebig University in Giessen, Germany. “There are about 4,500 confirmed cases. It is unclear, however, how many unconfirmed cases occurred. Farmers panicked when several calves of their herd were affected or dams repeatedly gave birth to BNP calves. Initially it was suspected that infectious or toxic agents may be involved, hence there was much fear of what was next to come.” The toxic agent was a lot closer to home than many initially suspected. Pfizer introduced its Pregsure vaccine in Europe in 2004 to protect against BVDV. The first cases of BNP occurred around 2007. The vaccine was introduced in New Zealand in 2008 and the disease was

Pfizer removed the BVDV vaccine thought to cause bleeding calf syndrome from the European market in 2010 and in the New Zealand market earlier this year. | FILE PHOTO reported in 2011. “This indicates that multiple vaccinations are necessary before the disease appears,” said Ruemenapf. “In Europe, the recommended vaccination schedule for Pregsure was a yearly immunization for cows.” What happens to calves when their dams are given Pregsure is complex. The suggestion is that the antibodies in the colostrum are actually responsible for destroying the calf’s blood cells. The disease was seen as an immune-mediated condition associated with the absorption of colostrum antibodies that react with cells in the calf’s bone marrow. Mothers produce these antibodies in response to the BVDV vaccine with the release of proteins. Thus, consumption of colostrum was thought to be the key triggering event. Compatibility issue

The process is linked to immunological cells known as major histocompatibility complex class 1 (MHC-1). Each individual has its own characteristic set of MHC-1 cells determined through the genetics of its parents. In humans it is often called human leucocyte antigen HLA. “MHC-1 is an important determinant for organ transplantations and bone marrow grafts,” said Ruemenapf. “You may have heard of typing (testing) large numbers of volunteers in order to find a suitable bone marrow donor for children with leukemia. Usually close relatives are the best pick. A graft with a matching MHC-1 set-up is pivotal to healing.” However, in the cattle industry these immunological cells seem to be causing a problem in a complex chain of events because the MHC-l molecules exist in the vaccine, where they are a component of the cells used for propagation of the vaccine virus. “Upon harvest of the viral antigens that are the desired components of the vaccine, the cellular components cannot be removed completely,” Ruemenapf said. He said anti MHC-1 antibodies are elevated only in Pregsure-vaccinated dams if the particular MHC-l type in the vaccine differs from that of the cow. They are not harmful to the cow but

cause trouble if by chance the calf has the same MHC-l type as was present in the vaccine. “By chance means the calf has dangerous MHC-1 genes inherited from the sire,” he said. “In this case, the maternal anti MHC-l antibodies attack the calf ’s bone marrow cells and lead to BNP.” Alloantibodies, which are antibodies generated by one individual of a species against another of the same species, are produced by the mother if it has different MHC-1 than the bovine cells used to grow the vaccine. However, if its calf has the same MHC-1 cells as in the vaccine and consumes its colostrum, the alloantibodies attack and destroy the calf’s own cells, including those of the bone marrow. Unable to produce platelets, its blood cannot coagulate and the calf bleeds to death. Pfizer pulled the vaccine from the European market in June 2010 and from New Zealand in August 2011 when the link between the vaccine and colostrum consumption emerged. Ruemanapf said many farmers disposed of dams with a BNP history. The number of cases has since dropped and there are no known reports of a BNP occurrence in Canada or the United States. The BVDV virus is a serious concern to the cattle industry. It is responsible for compromised fertility in dairy herds and has major implications for farming and animal welfare. Alternative vaccines are either modified life vaccines (MLV) or inactivated or killed vaccines (KV). “MLV are very unlikely to cause BNP because they contain only minute amounts of antigen from the cells used for production of the vaccine,” Ruemanapf said. “MLVs are very popular in North America so that repeated vaccination using a Pregsure analogous product (such as Cattlemaster Gold plus) is rare. MLV are very efficacious but should not be administered during pregnancy because they may harm the fetus.” Concerns were raised in New Zealand about whether colostrum or milk from vaccinated dairy cows would affect human health, but there is no evidence of any risk. As well, affected calves at such a young age would not enter the food chain.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — (Reuters) — Relief in the form of raindrops helped shrink the mass of drought-stricken areas in Texas earlier this month, but much more rain is needed to turn back the historic dry spell, according to a national drought report issued last week. Farmers rushed back into fields to seed winter wheat, and thirsty cattle enjoyed the respite from what has been months of little to no rain and hot temperatures. From 20 to 175 millimetres of rain were recorded from central Texas northward through Kansas. Still, much more rain is needed to even approach normal conditions, climatologists said. Some areas remain 300 mm short of normal rainfall. “It did help,” said Brian Fuchs, a climatologist with the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska. “That moisture is going to do a lot to settle the dust ... getting some relief to some areas that have suffered for a long time. But even with this rain, in some of these areas record dryness still prevails.” Rain tames the dangers of wildfires and improves rangeland and also provides the soil moisture wheat farmers have been waiting for to help germinate young winter wheat. While many farmers had already “dusted in” seed, others were hoping for rain before they planted. Now those farmers are busy in their fields. “It was a nice rain,” said Texas A&M agronomist Travis Miller. “It ranged all over the map, but a lot of our wheat country was covered by an inch and a half to five inches (25 to 44 mm) of rain. It was very timely.” Texas has suffered more than $5 billion in agricultural losses, and more than 23,000 separate wildfires have destroyed 3.8 million acres in the state’s longest one-year period on record. About 92 percent of the state was considered in extreme or exceptional drought, the highest levels reported, but that was down from 97 percent a week earlier. Exceptional drought, which is the worst level of drought, fell to 73.13 percent of Texas from 87.99 percent of the state. Oklahoma has also seen an improvement, with the level of exceptional drought dropping to 59.10 percent from 69.82 percent of the state. New Mexico and Arizona also saw drought levels mitigated. However, Louisiana actually saw drought areas expand, with more than a third of that state now in extreme or exceptional drought, the report said. The National Weather Service said forecasts for Oct. 18-22 call for drierthan-normal conditions from the Pacific Coast to the southern Plains, while wetter-than-normal weather is expected across the Midwest, Southeast, and northern Plains. “The longer-term outlook is not looking favourable,” said Fuchs.

Farm equipment facility plans get off the ground Western Tractor facility is shareholder owned BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

TABER, Alta. — The tough prairie sod was turned with industrial equipment, but farm equipment is the focus of a new 40,000 sq. foot John Deere facility for Western Tractor. The new farm equipment company selected the corner formed by Highways 3 and 36 on the west side of Taber, Alta., for its first major facility. Western Tractor comprises a group of shareholders with the combined assets of Green Power, which had dealerships in Taber, Burdett and Medicine Hat, and the former McKay Brothers of Lethbridge. All are now under the Western Tractor banner. Shareholders include McKay Brothers owners Cor Van Raay and Alan Fabro of Lethbridge, Deermart owners Jack and John Donald of Red Deer and Western Sales owner Grant Magrath of Rosetown, Sask. The new facility, scheduled for completion by this time next year, will include new equipment sales, a shop, centralized parts stocking and a 40 seat training facility for staff and customers, said corporate parts and marketing manager Doug Pilsner. Steven Dyck, president and general manager of Western Tractor, said the two-year-old company targeted this south-central area for its flagship outlet. “Taber quite simply has some of the most progressive producers in all of Canada,” he said. “Truly, southern Alberta is one of the most important agricultural markets in Canada, if not North America. You cannot find a more diverse part of this world.” Crops grown in the region include cereals, pulses, oilseeds, hay and forage, corn, sugar beets, potatoes and other vegetables. In addition, a major cattle feeding industry also has equipment needs. Dyck said he expects Western Tractor to grow through further acquisitions in the next few years, but it will remain privately held rather than publicly traded. A similar trend in combined farm equipment dealership strength has appeared in other parts of the Prairies in recent years. Van Raay, well known for his feedlot interests in southern Alberta, said he welcomed the start of a new facility and further evidence of a commitment by John Deere to service the region. He acknowledged the farm equipment business is competitive in the region, “but tell me what business isn’t competitive.” Dave Chipak, manager of John Deere Canada’s agriculture and turf business, spoke about the everincreasing sophistication of farm equipment, which makes training facilities an asset. This location will allow video conferencing and 3-D instruction for employees and farmers. With developments in GPS, telematics, field mapping and agronomic support, the company is positioning itself to serve, said Pilsner. “It’s not about the iron anymore, it’s about the solutions,” he said. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

Alberta’s newest agriculture minister will call upon his agricultural work ethic to lead him through his new job. Evan Berger, a southern Alberta mixed farmer, was named agriculture minister Oct. 12 by Alberta’s new premier, Alison Redford. “What I bring to the table is a work ethic I know other agricultural producers share,” said Berger of Nanton. He said he is also counting on his three years as parliamentary assistant for then sustainable resource development minister Mel Knight to help guide him through his new job. “I am very honoured and thrilled to be presented with this appointment,” said Berger from his office in the legislature. Berger was elected in 2008 as the MLA for Livingstone-Macleod but began his political career as a councillor and reeve for the Municipal District of Willow Creek. During his time on council, he spent six years as chair of the Municipal Planning Commission and the Agricultural Service Board. Berger said his first job would be to get his office set up and “get up to speed” on agricultural files, including meeting with agriculture groups across the province. “I want to sit down with producers and agriculture groups across the province and ask what they see as some of the problems and pitfalls and some early opportunities,” he said. Berger said he is fortunate to be taking over the agriculture portfolio in a time of strong prices for grain and livestock and with good yields of grain and grass in the fields. “The future is very bright for agriculture and there’s lots of room to move in a more positive direction yet,” he said. Berger spent last winter defending Alberta’s controversial land use bills at public meetings. As part of her election platform, Redford said she wanted to take a second look at the bills in light of the voracious opposition. Berger believes a lot of the opposition was caused by misunderstanding, but he would take his cue from the premier and wait to see what happens to the bills. He also expects to meet federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz soon to discuss the options and opportunities for Alberta farmers with changes to the Canadian Wheat Board. access=subscriber section=news,none,none




GOING DEEP INTO SOIL CARBON SEQUESTRATION Zero tillage on the Prairies puts more carbon into the soil than tillage-based systems that are used in Western Canada, say Canadian researchers. | Page 33

Pulldozer aims for level playing ground Land leveller | Pulls out roots and rocks, levels brush and smooths ruts and washboard roads BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

Farmers wanting a smoother field after fall drainage operations now have access to a machine designed with finish as the foremost factor. “The biggest benefit of the Pulldozer is ease of finishing compared to conventional scrapers,” says Dale Kotzer of Bridgeview Manufacturing in Gerald, Sask. “We saw that farmers wanted a more level field surface after they did their fall drainage work. That’s why we designed a new machine. “Zero till fields never level themselves or smooth themselves out like cultivated fields, so when you do your surface drainage work, you want the smoothest possible finish without another trip to the field.” Kotzer said conventional scrapers pick up a load and dump it in a pile. Producers need to come back with another implement to spread and smooth the soil. “And that’s what we wanted to change. We think of this machine as being more of a land leveller than a scraper or ditcher,” he said. “We promote the concept of raising the elevation of the potholes rather than digging a lot of ditches. You move less soil this way. If you run shallow drains and pull the soil up into the potholes, they become shallower. There’s a bigger surface area for evaporation and a bigger area for water to be absorbed into the soil.” Producers also use the machine to knock down brush, pull out roots and big rocks, and put a dirt cap over willows and cattails. Kotzer said shallow, wide ditches with soil pulled up into the depressions eliminates the problem of earthen dams and side ridges along the edges. Water flows freely into the drain. Another obvious advantage is that implements can work through the ditches without slowing or breaking down. He said the Pulldozer is not intended to be a hauling device. “If you try to move soil any great distance, you’re dragging it. That’s not efficient. That’s what scrapers are for,” he said. “The Pulldozer is intended for short runs and drain cleanout. It’s for situations where you want a final finish in the first pass.” The Pulldozer swivels left or right but does not go into a V-plow configuration.

Kotzer said it’s best described as a box scraper type of blade. The end plates tilt to control dirt release. Producers gradually lift the blade when they want to dump the load. Kotzer said the hydraulic controls are so precise that the operator can lay down a smooth, thin layer that will not require further machine work. Bridgeview recently added an optional trencher shank that mounts in the centre of the blade for operators who want to use the Pulldozer to create new ditches. The trencher serves the same basic purpose as a V-plow but makes a deeper cut. The 4,000 pound trencher shank slices a trench down the middle of the path that’s 24 inches deeper than the blade edge and up to 28 inches wide. The blades catch the soil and spread it left and right. “People ask us about running implements over a deep trench like that. It’s really no problem,” Kotzer said. “You have to farm at an angle to the trench, but the big implement tires just roll right over it. It’s not bad to drive across.” The hydraulically operated trencher pulls back into the blade when not needed for cutting new ditches and does not interfere with the normal function of the blade. The same trencher fits either the 18-foot or the 24-foot Pulldozer. Kotzer said Pulldozer owners found another use for the machines this summer. “Rural roads in Saskatchewan were terrible this year. Frost boils were everywhere. Many of the RMs hired farmers with Pulldozers to cut through the frost boils and level the roads. The blade edges we use are the same as grader blades, so replacement is simple.” The 24-foot model was the big seller when Bridgeview introduced the Pulldozer three years ago, with the 18-foot lagging in development. “Now, we’re selling more 18 foot models than 24 footers. I know that’s

opposite of what usually happens, but that’s the way it is. “I think the first buyers were the big farmers, the trend setters and early adopters. Those are the guys with the 535 horsepower tractors. They wanted the 2400 (24 foot). “When the medium sized farmers saw how well the thing worked, they bought. But these guys don’t farm as

many acres and they probably have 350 horsepower tractors. Those tractors won’t do a good job pulling the 2400. So this group is buying the 1800 (18-foot).” He said the 1800 is easier to transport between fields. Both models come ready to mount laser or RTK controls. The 24-foot Pulldozer weighs

24,000 pounds, drags up to 25 cubic yards and sells for $68,000. Horsepower requirement is 400 to 550. The 18-foot model weighs 18,000 lb., drags up to 18 cubic yards and sells for $58,000. Horsepow er requirement is 250 to 375. For more information, contact Kotzer at 306-745-2711 or visit www.




Large drainage ditcher smooths problems fast Skimming off the top | Wide design allows gradual ditches but also includes side gates for major soil hauling BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

Why would a farmer bother to design a new ditcher from scratch, considering the wide variety of options already on the market? For Jeff Penner, it was all about speed. “Speed and the fact that I wanted to move as little dirt as possible and still have good drainage,” says Penner, a farmer from Swan River, Man., who invented and manufactures the V-Wing 3200HD Ditcher. He said his corner of the province is not predominantly zero till, so there’s a lot of fall fieldwork. “We generally end up with only a week or so for our fall drainage work.” Penner said fall drainage used to be frustrating because he would work long days right up until the ground is frozen but never get all the existing drains cleaned out or new ones built. “I wanted a ditcher that was fast. Four to five m.p.h.,” he said. “I wanted nice gradual ditches that we could farm right through without destroying our seeders and sprayers and combines. And I wanted wide ditches so the water would flow slower. A deep ditch with steep sides causes soil erosion because the water moves too fast.” Penner also said conventional scrapers are too narrow, resulting in the outside tractor wheels running on the ridge and spinning. “A lot of guys don’t want to pull a scraper with their own tractors because they worry about wrecking their wheels. So we had to solve that problem by making a wider ditcher. Our machine is 32 feet wide. It makes a smooth flat ditch that won’t wreck your tractor wheels.” He said many people who see the machine for the first time think that a ditcher is bound to create earthen dikes at the edges that hold water back and act like a speed bump for the tractor. “No. Our blades don’t work that way. They work more like grader blades. They’re hydraulically controlled to work in all kinds of different directions and angles,” he said. “You can go all left, all right, V-plow or any combination in between. “That way you keep grading it out, feathering it out to keep a smooth edge.” Penner is designing and installing side gates so the ditcher can serve the same purpose as a scraper. This will give operators the option of hauling 35 cubic yards of soil per trip for major terrain changes such as filling potholes. Penner and a crew of 30 managed to finish the prototype just one week before the Farm Progress Show in Regina. He did the design and engineering the old fashioned way, on paper, and then handed the project over to a professional engineer who transferred the design to CAD and made changes to improve the structural integrity. Penner did 15,000 demonstration acres in just three weeks without a breakdown. “The machine works the way I intended. It makes consistently

broad, shallow drains. It’ll be easy to seed and spray and combine right through without busting up equipment.” He hasn’t ignored digital control of the V-Wing Ditcher, adding that RTK is essential. He now has a New Holland tractor hitched to the ditcher, but he has tried different brands to compare their GPS technology. “None of these systems have ever controlled a ditcher like this, mainly because there’s never been a ditcher like this. So I’ve had to work with the software. John Deere has their own private system. In fact all these system have their own parameters. I’ve found that the Trimble Autograde automatically controls up and down. It doesn’t move any more dirt than necessary.” Penner said investing in large drainage machinery and software is not a big gamble. He thinks better drainage can result in a major economic boost. “With better drainage, I think we can raise the average yield across the Prairies by five bushels per acre. Then take five bu. and multiply by $5 per bushel. You end up with something like $1.2 billion per year. And that’s why government is interested in better drainage. “Farmers think government is antidrainage. My experience is just the opposite. They want improved drainage for economic reasons but only if it’s in accordance with environmental considerations.” The V-Wing Ditcher is 32 feet wide and weighs a little more than 30,000 pounds. There are no hydraulic motors, so hydraulic demand on the cylinders is relatively small. The first units will be available next spring.

Harvest: I bet you’re glad it’s over INSIDE MACHINES



aybe you’ve had a busy har vest or maybe you didn’t have much of a crop to harvest. In either case, you are putting your combine away for the winter and it still needs tender loving care, whether it’s a 20-year-old machine or a two-year-old with all the gadgets. I’ve seen engine bearings in a tractor and a combine that were perfectly smooth but had furrows that looked as though a little mouse got in there and made a tunnel. An oil company rep looked at them once and said he had seen it before when engines were parked over winter with dirty oil. It didn’t show up until there was an engine failure because few engines were opened up to check for this. By then the evidence was destroyed. I once asked a bearing rep why so many nearly new sealed bearings fail in the first week of harvest. He said that he noticed while processing them for warranty returns that nearly all of them had half of their races cor-

roded and the other half were perfectly clean. This is from parking a hot combine. The grease runs to the bottom of the bearing, leaving the top exposed to the atmosphere and susceptible to corrosion. Prevent this by turning the combine over a few times after it is cold. Bring your batteries in for storage or at least clean them off. The dirt and chaff will carry enough current to run the battery down, which makes it vulnerable to freezing or premature failure of the plates. Air conditioning shops are busy just before harvest charging combine systems. They haven’t failed; they just need charging. This could be prevented by removing the pump from its mounts and setting it on the pulley end so the oil in the system can keep the seal moist. Put a sign in the cab reminding operators not to start the combine without putting the pump back on. Owners of older machines, especially those bought secondhand after being parked outside at a dealership, will often have trouble with the variable speed belts. The grease on the shaft where the variable speed pulley slides on gets so thick that the pulley won’t slide anymore. The belt snaps when the pulley breaks loose. This can be fixed by cleaning up all variable speed drives and applying grease. Be careful when washing a combine with a high pressure washer

because it’s easy to get water contamination past the seals on the bearings. As well, some washers are powerful enough to take the paint right off the body of the machine. I recommend tilting combines on the driveway edge both ways and washing out the augers on the bottom of the shoe and the hopper. Why not get your combine ready for next season this fall? You can sometimes tell when a bearing is about to fail by a noise such as a rumble, or belts start getting jumpy. A vibration analyzer can show in minutes whether you have a bad bearing, how bad it is and which one i t i s. I k n ow i t i s a n e x p e n s i v e machine, but I have used them and they work. Fill the fuel tank to prevent condensation and change the coolant if it is more than two years old. It might be a good idea to reverse the tires if the combine spends a lot of time on the road. That makes them quieter and they don’t wear as fast. Bring the header down to rest on the stops. Tighten the wheel bolts. New bolts must be tightened every hour for the first day in operation. Your winter will be better if you know in the back of your mind that harvest is only a twist of the key away. Henry Guenter is a former service manager for Massey Ferguson.

FARGO, N.D. — Standing water is not a pretty sight, especially with today’s crop prices. “With $7 corn and $10 beans, losing 20 acres to standing water is something you just do not want to do,” said Perry Rust, owner of Rust Sales in Harwood, North Dakota. His solution is a disc-style V-ditcher that looks like two coulters welded together. He runs it down the centre of each surface drain to create a well defined V-ditch six inches wide and six inches deep. Rust said the past decade of wet weather has challenged the traditional notion of what a surface drain should do. The kind of surface ditches that once were adequate no longer drain the field quickly enough. Crop damage is the inevitable result. “Whether you’re in total no-till or you do cultivation, the fact is that your seeding operation will run across most of your ditches,” Rust said. “You create hundreds and thousands of these little dams across your drains. They’re only fractions of an inch high, but put them all together and they impede the water flow.” Producers have no choice but to farm across ditches, but they build more obstructions on each pass. Waiting until standing water appears is the wrong approach.

“Once they have standing water, a lot of guys put those narrow ditching tires on their ATVs. You really make a mess of the field and damage a lot of crop when you try to get in there and work in the mud with any kind of machine. I think a proactive approach is better.” Rust advised taking the V-Ditcher into the field immediately after seeding. If farmers harrow after seeding, they should use the V-Ditcher after harrowing. The main thing is to create the V-ditches before it rains. “You make a single pass with the V-Ditcher down the middle of every drain. It slices through any soil or residue you dragged into the drain while seeding. It doesn’t take much time. You can really fly down the ditches. Just follow the drain pattern that snakes across the field. You end up with a nice clean V that cuts through all your little dirt dams.” He said the V-ditch operation is easier if the surface drains are delineated on GPS maps in the cab. The V-Ditcher mounts on a tractor’s three point hitch and is loaded with tractor suitcase weights. “You need a decent sized tractor because it ends up weighing about 5,000 pounds by the time you’re ready to go.” The Rust V-Ditcher sells for $2,100 US.

Soil study digs deeper into carbon sequestration Depth of soil sample | Experts compare carbon stocks in soil samples to determine best carbon sequestration methods BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

The scientific debate over whether plowed soil sequesters the same amount of carbon as no till doesn’t apply to the Canadian Prairies, says an Agriculture Canada researcher. Studies over the last 20 years have shown that zero tillage sequesters more carbon than plowed soil, but some soil carbon experts, including John Baker of the University of Minnesota, have said the experiments supporting no till were flawed because scientists failed to take soil samples at sufficient depth. If samples were collected below 30 centimetres, Baker noted in a 2006 paper, the results would show that plowed soil sequestered as much carbon as no till soil. Brian McConkey, a soil and water conservationist with Agriculture Canada in Swift Current, Sask., said Baker may have a case, but the argument applies only to regions of North America where farmers have historically used moldboard plows. He said moldboard plowing inverts the soil and buries crop residue at a depth of 20 to 25 cm. As a result, deeper sampling is needed to detect carbon in a tillage system where the soil is completely flipped. “In Ontario, with a plow tillage situation, if you only sample to 15 to 25 cm, then you sor t of miss that enriched layer in the plow system. You underestimate the amount of carbon in the plow system,” said McConkey, who authored a paper with several Agriculture Canada scientists that looked at the impact of soil sampling depths on differences in soil carbon stocks. Nevertheless, McConkey said soil carbon experts in Canada have known for more than a decade that shallow soil samples exaggerated the amount of carbon sequestration in no till soil. Baker may have reached that conclusion in the mid-2000s, but Canadian research in the late 1990s showed that sampling depth was critical in agricultural regions with moldboard plowing. “Most American scientists don’t read much Canadian literature,” McConkey said. Fields with a history of moldboard plowing might hold a similar amount of carbon as no till fields in Ontario, but that conclusion doesn’t apply to Western Canada, he added, because the tillage history in the region is significantly different. “Even where we have discs … they essentially stir the soil up and mix the residue uniformly within the depth of tillage. That’s a very different process than an actual complete inversion that you get with moldboard plowing.” As a result, Western Canada isn’t comparable to Ontario and the U.S. Midwest because moldboard plowing buries residue at greater depths where it decomposes slowly over time. In their scientific paper, McConkey and his colleagues studied soil samples from long-term no till plots in Alberta and Saskatchewan and determined that no till soil held more access=subscriber section=crops,news,none

carbon near the surface and more carbon in the entire soil profile compared to plowed soil. He said this means the flawed sampling argument doesn’t hold water in Western Canada. “They (Baker and others) are saying if you go deep enough (with soil samples), you lose the effect. What we’re saying is if we go deeper in the Canadian prairie situation, you get more carbon (from no tillage).” This study may suggest that no till holds more carbon than plow tillage, but McConkey said that doesn’t

mean it is the definitive study on the topic. The case for no till and carbon is based on a body of work on the topic, which is why Canadian scientists and policy makers support the Alberta Offset System, where no till farmers are compensated for greenhouse gas sequestration. Tom Goddard, an Alberta Agriculture policy adviser, said governments can’t change its policies on no till every time a new study comes out. “What’s really valuable, from a policy point of view, is to look at these

review papers where they look at everything published in the last number of years,” he said. However, the Alberta government

is revising some of its policies on no till and carbon sequestration. Details of those changes will be released shortly, Goddard said.

Nothing makes lighter work of a heavy crop.

Thousands of acres of canola to harvest? Consider it done. Just couple our Hesston by Massey Ferguson® 9000 Series swather with our 5200 draper head and canola has met its match. Nothing makes fast track harvesting easier. And nothing creates smoother swaths. The best in the business? We’d like to think so. But don’t take it from us. Take it from all those canola farmers who wouldn’t drive anything else.

Growers who contract canola acres have the advantage over growing commodity canola. The demand for high stability canola oil continues to increase as the world continues to develop an appetite for healthier food. That’s good news for canola growers looking to increase profits, decrease risk and manage logistics. “Canola growers have the opportunity to grow what the end use market wants,” says Mark Woloshyn, Nexera Brand Leader. “For example, growers have many risk management, pricing and delivery options available through the Nexera™ canola contracting companies this fall. It’s really up to the grower to take advantage of the profit opportunity offered by Nexera canola hybrids and attractive contracts this fall.” Jason Remus, a grower from Langenburg, SK, contracted 640 acres of Nexera canola this year. “The major reasons we choose to contract Nexera is because it’s profitable and there’s demand,” says Remus. “With major customers like Frito-Lay and the new markets that are presenting themselves, it helps our bottom line.” Along with profitability, contracting makes managing harvest much more predictable. Glen Helgason grows 4,500 acres of canola with his father each year. Between half and

two-thirds of those acres are grown under contract.

to Nexera canola. He plans on contracting 3000 acres next year.

“As part of the contract with the Nexera varieties, we have delivered the first 25 per cent of our Nexera straight off the combine which certainly does help with the storage logistics,” he says.

“As a rule, we like to have most of our canola delivered before November so we don’t have to worry about the bins but this year we were able to deliver all of our November and January delivery in September. Hauling January canola right after harvest frees up bin space which helps us out a lot,” he says.

According to Helgason, premiums offered by contracting companies are one of the most attractive selling features. “At the end of the day the premiums paid for the Nexera give us higher net revenue which is what our farm is aiming for,” he says. Increased crushing capacity especially in Western Canada is helping fuel the demand for more contract-grown canola than ever before. “I see us expanding the percentage of Nexera on our farm in the future compared to the commodity canola that we are growing today,” Helgason explains. “Nexera is a specialty canola oil which is servicing a new market versus growing commodity canola which serves established markets. That’s a definite advantage.” Each year Stornaway, SK, farmer Courtney Solonenko grows approximately 6,000 acres of canola with 600 of those acres contracted

Like Jason Remus and Glen Helgason, Solonenko is pleased with the profit potentials offered with contracting. “We’re very happy with the profit opportunities that Nexera offers. We are getting paid for the product that we are growing which is what we want as growers,” says Solonenko. “And it’s nice to know you’re helping provide better health and better food quality with this kind of canola.” There’s a bright future for Nexera canola growers. Increased demand, higher yielding-hybrids and Nexera canola contract premiums are making canola contracts an attractive management strategy for profitability and predictability.

New Alberta premier Alison Redford has appointed her new cabinet, shuffling, adding and dropping ministers, including the former agriculture minister. Evan Berger, a farmer and rancher from Nanton, is the province’s new agriculture minister, replacing Jack Hayden. Like Hayden, Berger was active in municipal politics as a member of the Municipal District of Willow Creek, nine years as reeve and six as chair of the Municipal Planning Commission and Agricultural Service Board. Berger was first elected in 2008 and appointed parliamentary assistant to the sustainable resource development minister. Redford, Alberta’s 14th premier, made the cabinet slightly smaller, to 20 from 23 members with a mix of old and new cabinet ministers, including all the sitting members who ran against her for the leadership of the Progressive Conservative party. “It’s a mix of people that represent Alberta,” Redford said during a news conference after the cabinet was sworn in Oct. 12. “We are the people that are living in this province and I think those are the people Albertans want to make decisions about their future.” Within hours of being sworn in, new education minister Thomas Lukaszuk announced the reinstatement of $107 million in funding that was cut from the last budget. “Children and the education of children will be one of our priorities,” he said. “The reinstatement of the dollars seems to be the right thing to do.” Lukaszuk said the money will be used partly to reduce class sizes and increase the number of aids in classrooms for special needs. Former agriculture minister and leadership candidate Doug Horner is the new deputy premier and president of the Treasury Board and Enterprise. Ted Morton, a leadership candidate against former premier Ed Stelmach and Redford, was named energy minister. Doug Griffiths, the youngest leadership candidate, is the new municipal affairs minister. Hayden has been named minister of tourism, parks and recreation. Water was added to the title of Ministry of Environment and Water, a nod to the importance of the value of water in the province, said Redford. “It was important to signal to Albertans that we as a government understand how much Albertans care about that and we make it a priority.” Diana McQueen, former Drayton Valley mayor, will head up the environment and water department. “This is a strong team of people who have new perspectives and are very interested in new approaches,” she said. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

U.S. livestock producers stick with feed wheat Change prompted by corn premium | Switch to wheat is usually temporary, but now embraced for its financial benefits CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — The surprise drop in U.S. corn feed demand this summer may be only the beginning of a year-long reduction as chicken and hog producers break a long-held aversion to blending more wheat into rations. What initially began as a summer fling with an unprecedented premium for corn prices over wheat has turned into an enduring trend as livestock producers lock in longerterm wheat deals, many of which can’t be quickly undone even as the corn price premium finally recedes. Some livestock producers initially resisted the switch, fearing it would slow weight gain of their animals or disrupt eating habits. Now they have embraced its financial benefits, injecting a new dynamic into grain markets. “We are going to continue feeding (wheat) so we can stretch the corn crop through the whole season. I think (corn) availability is going to be an issue this coming year as well,” said Tim Thomas, a hog producer in Timberlake, North Carolina, who has been using a 50-50 mix. “Some groups of hogs won’t like the flavour as well as they will straight corn, but normally we can blend up to 50-50 and don’t have any problems getting them to eat it,” he said. Wheat feeding is usually a short-

term phenomenon that occurs in June, July and August, after the U.S. winter wheat harvest. However, some U.S. chicken and hog producers are looking to extend their use of feed wheat throughout the year. The implications run deep into the corn market, which has slumped 12 percent since Sept. 1 on signs that demand rationing is far more widespread than believed. In April, wheat futures on the Chicago Board of Trade dipped below corn for the first time in nearly 15 years. Since June, CBOT wheat has been trading at an average of 10 cents below corn, the longest such inversion since at least the early 1970s. Cash prices were at times even more favourable for wheat buyers. Wheat prices have periodically rallied back above corn, including as recently as earlier this month, but the change in feed habits should stick. “We hear of wheat feeding being booked all the way through the spring in the southeast markets,” said Rich Feltes, vice-president for research with R.J. O’Brien in Chicago. The changing feed mix follows a summer in which U.S. corn stocks threatened to shrink to near their tightest since the Second World War. Corn prices surged to a record $8 a bushel, while swelling global wheat supplies depressed prices.

U.S. hog producers are becoming more comfortable with feeding wheat to their animals. | In the United States, plentiful supplies of wheat, especially soft red winter wheat grown in the southern Midwest, provided a welcome alternative for livestock feeders in the southeast. Nutritionally, wheat offers more protein than corn but less energy from fat, so most operations have to recalibrate rations to accommodate wheat as a substitute ingredient. Wheat feeding has been less common in the big cattle feedlots of the

southern U.S. Plains because a drought slashed production of the region’s hard red winter wheat crop. Some cattle feeders were able to book a four-month supply of hard red winter wheat this past summer as local cash corn prices surged, but wheat has become less competitive since then, said Joe Christopher, a grain merchandiser with Crossroads Co-op in Sidney, Nebraska. Elaine Johnson, analyst with Cattle-

FILE PHOTO, said cattle producers try to ensure they have enough supply to stay switched for six months to a year. Booking large quantities enables them to blend new ingredients into and out of their feed rations slowly, over several weeks. “They do not want to feed wheat and then a month later go back to the other mixture. It is not something they like to do on a short-run basis,” Johnson said.

Highland cattle are raised on the Red Deer River Ranches west of Sundre, Alta. The ranch says the breed is ideally suited to the climate and conditions of the region. |



Highlands prove good fit for colder area Hardy breed likes climate | Producer sells cattle under Alberta’s natural beef program BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

SUNDRE, Alta. — After years of losses from BSE, drought and floods, one ranch in the Alberta foothills found a new opportunity in an old breed of cattle. Red Deer River Ranches has undergone significant changes in the last seven years. Owner Don Hanson and manager Jason Bradley insist that the 50,000 acre spread, which was established in 1890, must pay for itself. The cow herd was dispersed last year and replaced with Highlands for a natural beef program. They had previously bought cowcalf pairs in the spring for a summer grazing program. The calves were sold in October and the bred cows

left in November. However, they did not buy pairs this spring because they were too expensive. The first of the Highland purebreds arrived last year. The ranch also runs a cross bred program using Herefords because both breeds can rustle up enough forage to survive and withstand wind, heavy snow, bitter cold and summer droughts. The Highlands also grow a second hair coat for extra winter insulation. When the temperature in Calgary is – 35 C, this ranch west of Sundre can be 10 degrees colder, which is made worse by the wind chill. “I’ve had cows freeze to death,” Bradley told a group of visitors at the end of September. “There can’t be a better breed of

cow for this kind of outfit than the Highland cow. Some cattlemen have said they might be the best cross, but everyone thinks they have the best cross.” Although Bradley needs a special chute to handle the breed’s long horns, he appreciates the animals’ quiet temperament because he works alone with only occasional help from neighbours. “I don’t want a nasty cow with horns.” The cattle graze on leased land and forestry allotments from June to October and receive a pelleted ration that includes vitamins, molasses, wheat mill run, beet pulp, canola and soybean meal. The goal is to extend grazing to reduce forage purchases. “It puts us behind the eight ball in

the drought years because we are competing with other ranchers and the horse industry,” he said. Bradley, a former high tech manager from Calgary, researched the possibilities when the ranch decided to change direction. He heard about Highlands and connected with Canada’s largest breeder, Don Badger in Quebec’s Eastern Townships. Bradley was warned that it isn’t easy to develop a new niche program, but the plan went ahead and the first purebreds arrived 18 months ago from several sources. The ranch now has 65 cows, including 15 purebred Herefords. Females are bred at age two and calve at three. Males are left intact and the meat is marketed as virgin bull beef.

The cattle, which are age verified, reach market weight at 1,200 pounds between 24 and 28 months. They are processed at a local provincially inspected plant and the beef is sold at the Cochrane Butchery as a natural product. Some is also sold direct to consumers as frozen boxed beef or through outlets with a similar philosophy of offering hormone and antibiotic free meat. The meat is finely textured and lean with a stronger flavour that requires slow cooking. “People need to invest time in their food. They will get a different eating experience,” he said. Bradley would prefer to process the cattle on the ranch, but on-farm slaughter in Alberta is allowed only for personal use.

Consumers place priority on animal care Story behind the food | Producers must be willing to verify their farms’ welfare practices STORIES BY ALEX BINKLEY FREELANCE WRITER

OTTAWA — The modern business world puts much stock in measuring performance as a way to improve a company’s supply chain. Food retailers and restaurant chains want to see that included in the codes of practice that the livestock and poultry industries are developing, said David Smith, Sobeys’ national vice-president of retail strategy and sustainability. He said consumers increasingly

want proof that meat comes from humanely raised animals. The National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) could offer that assurance because the codes are supported by humane societies and independent scientists and have strong links with governments. However, they have to include measurements of on-farm activities and be subject to independent verification. Smith told a recent NFACC conference that livestock groups need to get producers engaged in meeting the

requirements of the codes. Farmers must realize customers want evidence that conditions are improving. “Consumers want to do the right thing and they want to know the story behind their food,” he said. “Performance metrics, including third party verification, are essential to proving that improvement is taking place.” Ed Pajor, a professor of animal behaviour and welfare from the University of Calgary’s veterinary school, said the codes of practice are good ways to prove that farmers do care for the welfare of their animals. “We need benchmarking of the farms to show they adhere to the best practices,” he said. “Currently, agriculture benchmarking is all about efficiency and profit. They make sure farms perform.” The recordkeeping also needs to be applied to the care of livestock and poultry, he added. The public has come to regard farm animals as sentient creatures and not just units of production, he said. This emphasis on animal feelings and condition isn’t lost on retailers and restaurant chains, which will institute their own certification programs if farmers don’t. He also emphasized the need for farmers to realize buyers want documentation on the effectiveness of their animal care practices.

“They want you to show them you’re doing the right thing.” To make benchmarking meaningful, farmers should get feedback on how their operations compare to others and be audited for their animal welfare activities, he said. “Without feedback, there’s no reason for producers to change any of their practices. We have to do a better job on using the information we gather to help producers. We have to see benchmarking as a learning tool.” Auditing a farm’s welfare practices must also be regarded as an exercise to help producers and not just be the usual examination of books and practices. “Third party verification of how well the codes work are key, but we have a lot of steps to take before we start that. For starters, we have to get producers onside with the concept.” Smith said sustainability is going to dominate the food business in the near future and companies want to make sure they’re prepared. They will want verifiable information that shows animal care is a priority or they will take their business elsewhere. He said the NFACC should look at getting the codes approved under the Global Food Safety Initiative so that audits can be used to fulfill other domestic and international food safety verification requirements.

OTTAWA — Producer groups need to educate consumers about the livestock codes of practice they are developing, said an Agriculture Canada dairy specialist. “You want to be able to assure the public that farmers are following the codes,” Anne Marie de Passille told a recent conference organized by the National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC). For example, Sweden has a seal of quality program for animal products from farms that meet humane treatment standards. Canadian farm groups also have to make sure farmers have ongoing help to live up to the codes. “We need advisory tools for farmers that evaluate what they do well and what they could improve on,” de Passille said. “We should train farm advisers and vets so the program works equitably across the country. Farm audits will help identify the farmers who need help.” She said researchers from the universities of Laval, Guelph, Calgary and British Columbia are collaborating with Dairy Farmers of Canada to develop a program for determining the comfort and well being of cows and calves. Colostrum assessment is an important part of this program, she added. “We score the producer on various aspects of farm management for cows, calves and heifers.” Farmers can use the code to self evaluate their operation or in cooperation with a veterinarian. “The farmer gets a report on how well the farm is doing at providing for the care and comfort of its animals,” she said. Most Swedish dairy farmers follow that country’s humane livestock program through its four steps to ensure their cows are able to perform at their maximum, she said. “They help the producer understand the cows. It goes into considerable detail and can signal welfare issues.” Milk from farms that pass the program can be sold as part of the seal of quality product line. Geoff Urton, animal welfare manager for the British Columbia SPCA, told the conference that Canadian farmers have avoided conflicts with animal rights activists by co-operating with humane societies and scientists to adopt proper treatment for their livestock and poultry. He said the agriculture community has fully supported the work of the NFACC to establish detailed codes of practice on raising animals humanely. “The presence of NFACC is a good sign because it shows that agriculture is taking the concerns of animal welfarists seriously.” He said the council has brought together farmers, veterinarians, scientists, humane societies, the food industry and governments to work on the codes since it was formed in 2005. Most codes will be complete by 2014. “It’s more than an industry body,” Urton said. “It builds relationships and offers a forum for talking about tough issues. Everyone brings a moderate, collaborative approach to the table.” access=subscriber section=livestock,none,none





Pregnancy check methods vary with animal size, location ANIMAL HEALTH


Ultrasound equipment is rarely available at auction marts because of the cost


odern technology provides a variety of ways to perform a pregnancy diagnosis. However, the age-old method of rectal exam is still much in use and offers many advantages. Veterinarians often have their specific preference, but in specific situations one method may offer a distinct advantage over the other. The two most common methods are manual rectal palpation, which has stood the test of time, and ultrasound, which has become easier to do as technology improves and equipment becomes smaller. Methods that use blood or milk samples have a place in limited situations but cost more and have delayed results. Rectal palpation in most situations in beef herds under a skilled veterinarian is fast, efficient, safe and relatively accurate throughout most of the pregnancy. It is quite accurate in the early (30 to 100 days) and late (seven to nine months) stages of pregnancy. Palpation can still detect a pregnancy in the middle trimester but the accuracy as to stage of pregnancy can easily be plus or minus one month. Experienced palpators are fast and gentle and do no damage by touching the fetus, especially in late pregnancy. One must be especially gentle in the 30 to 60 day time frame, especially if the uterus must be retracted to make the diagnosis. Research has found that rough palpation at precisely 35 days of pregnancy leads to a higher incidence of atresia ani (born without a rectum). The fetus is quite resilient further along in pregnancy. Rectal palpation will still be the method of choice for most beef operations. It frees the vet from carrying the ultrasound machine and allows him to help push cattle up the alleyway, vaccinate or apply endectocide, which helps speed the operation. A palpation cage is needed to protect the veterinarian and allow quick pregnancy checking. Most veterinarians prefer that cows be caught and held because posts placed behind them make for a dangerous situation if the cow drops down with the vet’s arm still in the rectum. Ultrasounding is now primarily

used in dairies, where most pregnancy diagnosis is done early in the first 28 to 60 days of pregnancy. It has a few advantages over rectal palpation at this early stage. It is accurate at this stage, and experienced veterinarians can often detect twins and may do fetal sexing at 55 to 70 days of pregnancy. The right ultrasound view is needed with fetal sexing, which naturally slows down the process. Early embryonic death may be detected, which happens when a fetus is found without a fetal heartbeat. Experienced practitioners can diagnose pregnancies in the 27 day range in cattle and earlier than that in horses.

A probe will still be used rectally, much like rectal palpation, but less manipulation of the uterus is needed with the early pregnancies. Less manipulation also means less wear and tear on the arms and wrists of the palpator. Newer machines have goggles that the operator wears to see the image more clearly. Practitioners previously had to bring out a monitor, which required proper lighting and a shroud if done outside. The new technology can still break down and batteries can go dead, which means a back-up plan is required. Pictures can be taken for insurance purposes with some machines and

may have a place in sales or for highend animals. Palpation cages may not be available In feedlots. If so, inserters can be pushed into the rectum with the probe attached. These are used for pregnancy diagnosing small ruminants such as alpacas, where manual rectal palpation is out of the question because the rectum is too small. Ultrasound has less value at auction markets because they are inaccurate at staging the middle and far along pregnancies. As well, ultrasound equipment is expensive and does not stand up to the rigours of being bumped or dropped. Generally, pregnancy testing with

ultrasound is slower and costs more because of the equipment. Tests have been developed for blood and milk progesterone, which under certain situations have a place. The main drawbacks are cost and the delay factor in finding out the results. They may be useful if a veterinarian is not available or a long distance away. They are also slightly safer because the fetus is not touched and have good accuracy unless cattle are tested at less than 30 days. However, they can also miss the early embryonic deaths.

njoy what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life, or so they say. I guess that means work is defined as anything we don’t enjoy doing. But I know guys who don’t enjoy leisure activities, so is that work? I don’t know. It’s more debate about words and semantics than I care to ponder. The bottom line is this, I guess — work, or whatever you call it, goes better if it’s fun. This is a place where our parenting skills are tested as we try to con our offspring into doing something helpful for the family unit, or the family ranch. I must have been easy to entertain with ranch work because I spent a lot of time outside with Dad when I was a kid. Some of what I did out there must have been helpful. Maybe. I pounded a lot of nails. To start with I just pounded them for fun. I pounded 20 or 25 nails in the shape of my initials, RT, into a plank that was part of the walkway to the door of our house. It’s pretty long lasting nail art; it’s still there 35 years later.


Eventually, the skill set I developed was put to use nailing up corral planks with long pole barn spikes, and nailing barbed wire to oak fence posts with fencing staples that were a little less tough than the iron hard oak they were trying to penetrate. When I take the kids to the shop with me, or out to the pasture, I make sure I have three hammers, a can of little nails and three blocks of wood. I should also remember to take some Band-Aids and a hanky to dry the tears because they are certain to hammer a thumb in the process. But they are learning a little about hammering nails. And it keeps them occupied while I try to do my work, or play, or whatever it is, depending on my level of enjoyment.

It takes some effort as a dad to find them a little job they can handle or an activity that’ll keep them busy. Like keeping a pair of little grain scoops in the feed bin so they can help me fill the feed buckets. I could do it just as fast, or faster, by myself, but this way they can help out and I have more fun when I hear giggles in the grain bin. I got the two boys helping to build a couple of electric cross fences in our pasture this fall. Nothing’s quite as amusing as listening to a five and seven-year-old visit back and forth like a couple of little old men as they feed me fence posts and clip insulators onto them after I’ve pounded them in. The best part is that the tasks they took on were of real value. They saved me a lot of walking and were pretty darned entertaining co-workers. It’d have probably been easier to give them my phone to play a video game, or to have left them home with their mother. But it was a beautiful fall day to get out and enjoy. I don’t think we broke any child labour laws because the boys had so much fun. And, like I started out saying, if you’re enjoying yourself it ain’t work. Come to think of it, I guess I didn’t work much that afternoon either. But somehow, at the end of the day, we did get a fence put up.

Parties pitch freeze in university tuition, aid for disabled Promises made by both parties | Candidates silent on agriculture in first week of campaigning in Saskatchewan BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

The first week of Saskatchewan’s election campaign came and went without a word about agriculture from the two main contenders. Saskatchewan Party leader Brad Wall and NDP leader Dwain Lingenfelter spent the week outlining how they would make health, education and shelter more affordable. Wall announced Oct. 17 what will be the most expensive campaign promise from his party — an expand-

ed Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability program. The program was introduced in 2009 to be distinct from social assistance. It assists 3,000 people with disabilities in residential care. The Saskatchewan Party promised to expand that to cover another 7,000 people with disabilities who live independently. The party said the expanded program will cost $18.4 million in the first year, rising to $33.3 million by the fourth year, for a total of $100 million. “This promise will cost the most

money, and it is worth every single penny,” Wall said. Other promises last week included a program to reduce tuition fees, matching contributions to Registered Education Savings Plans, an expanded active families benefit, extending the provincial sales tax exemption to children younger than 18 and a tax credit for first-time home buyers. The Saskatchewan Party government said it would also increase benefits for low-income seniors living in personal care homes. Lingenfelter began the week prom-

ising a Bright Futures Fund, which would invest a minimum of $100 million per year from potash royalties. The fund would grow to about $10 billion by 2052, could not be accessed for 20 years and could not be used for operating shortfalls. On the health care front, the NDP pledged to establish 100 new primary health care clinics over 10 years, reinstate chiropractic coverage and establish basic children’s dental coverage for those aged five to 12. Community access hospitals would be facilities that remain open

with a nurse practitioner. Doctors in nearby communities, or a team hired provincially to fill in, would assist. “We’re not proposing it as a replacement for physicians,” Lingenfelter said in a speech. “The community access hospital is a supplementary approach.” Other NDP promises included eliminating the small business tax, introducing a northern economic strategy, sharing resources with aboriginal people and offering PST rebates for newly constructed homes costing less than $280,000. access=subscriber section=news,none,none


Former wheat board minister dies BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Former Canadian Wheat Board minister Reg Alcock has died at 63. Alcock served as president of the Treasury Board and minister responsible for the wheat board from 200306 under Liberal prime minister Paul Martin. He held a seat in the House of Commons for four consecutive terms, representing the riding of Winnipeg South from 1993 to 2006. After his electoral defeat in 2006, he served as executive in residence at the University of Manitoba’s Asper School of Business from 2007-08. He also served as the school’s associate dean from 2008-09 before being re-appointed as executive in residence in 2010. Media reports suggest Alcock died after suffering a heart attack at Winnipeg’s James Richardson International Airport Oct. 14. Alcock earned a bachelor of arts degree from Simon Fraser University and a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard. He was elected to the Manitoba legislature in 1988 and re-elected in 1990. In 1993, he was elected in the federal riding of Winnipeg South, securing nearly 50 percent of the ballots cast. Manitoba Liberal leader Jon Gerrard, a long-time friend and colleague, told the Canadian Press that Alcock was a force in Manitoba politics. “Reg Alcock has been a phenomenal force in Manitoba, a true champion for Manitoba and for Canada and indeed for the Liberal party,” he said. David Barnard, president and vicechancellor of the University of Manitoba, said Alcock’s contributions had a lasting impact at all levels of public life. “In addition to his outstanding work for our university, he dedicated much of his life to public service for this city, province and country,” Barnard said. Alcock is survived by his partner Karen Taraska-Alcock and their children Sarah, Matthew and Christina. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

Traditional lines are beginning to blur in Western Canada’s grain handling business. It used to be that pulse companies processed pulses and elevator companies handled grains and oilseeds. These days they’re venturing onto each other’s turf. Earlier this month, Canada’s largest pulse processing firm announced it was getting into the durum milling business. A few weeks before that, another big pulse company announced it had broken ground on a $109 million canola crushing facility in Warden, Washington. While Alliance Grain Traders Inc. and Legumex Walker Inc. are venturing outside their traditional spheres of business, Canada’s big elevator companies are becoming increasingly interested in handling pulses. Farmers delivered 2.4 million tonnes of peas to primary elevators in 2010-11, up 43 percent from the previous crop year. Grain companies are also handling more of the red lentil crop every year. Grain industry analysts expect further intermingling of the grain handling and pulse processing businesses and perhaps some mergers and takeovers in the post-Canadian Wheat Board monopoly environment. “From what I understand, there are discussions going on in a lot of board rooms and in operations rooms as well,” said Chuck Penner, president of LeftField Commodity Research. “Within maybe even less than two years, we’ll see some significant changes to the landscape.” Pulse companies want to diversify and grow, but it is difficult to do that within the maturing pulse sector. “We may be seeing that we’ve reached the top end of where those acres can be,” said Penner. “The bigger opportunities are outside of that area now.” Yet the grain companies view the pulse market as untapped potential. access=subscriber section=ag_finance,none,none

Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall, left, Alliance Grain Traders CEO Murad Al-Katib and prime minister Stephen Harper examine pulses processed at one of AGT’s facilities in Regina. The politicians were on hand for AGT’s announcement that it was investing $50 million in a durum milling and pasta production business. As pulse companies invest in the grains and oilseed sector, big elevator companies are venturing into the pea and lentil business, blurring the lines that once existed in Western Canada’s grain handling industry. | KAREN BRIERE PHOTO too competitive. Where they want to be is focused on the smaller niche markets where they can have a real impact and a presence.” Alliance will remain first and foremost a processor while Viterra will continue to focus on the bulk handling side of the grain business. Alliance is getting into durum milling and pasta manufacturing because it has experience in that business through its existing production plants in Turkey. However, Hansen expects future announcements will focus on the pulse side of Alliance’s operations rather than venturing further into grain and oilseeds. “They’re a very big player in the lentil business, but they’re not a very big player in the bean business, so there are opportunities within the other pulse-related markets

where they can grow their presence,” he said. Penner agreed. He said pulse companies like Alliance and Legumex Walker don’t own export terminals so they’re going to have a tough time competing in the grain handling business, although Alliance shipped its first vessel of bulk red lentils to North Africa in August. “There will be some limits on how much they can invade that turf,” he said. Hansen said any further blurring of the lines will likely be driven by the grain companies. “You would possibly see some of the likes of Viterra getting more into the pulses business and you’ve seen that,” he said. “They’ve made some acquisitions in that space and that would be a logical extension of their business.”

They are finding it hard to ignore the millions of acres of peas and lentils grown on the Prairies. “It is cutting into some of the other crops that they might have handled in the past,” said Penner.

Louis Dreyfus leans toward private investor rather than shareholders to raise cash PARIS/LOND ON (Reuters) — Louis Dreyfus is not envisaging a listing of its trading unit in the short term but is still considering options to raise capital, leaning toward a private investor. The Financial Times reported Oct. 17 that the French company

had hired bankers to look at a listing of its commodities trading arm or a partial sale to a sovereign wealth fund. However, two sources with direct knowledge of the Louis Dreyfus situation said there was nothing new.

“There is no rush; the company has been private for 150 years so there is no specific timing for changing the share holding structure,” one source said. Louis Dreyfus has been in a state of flux since former head Robert LouisDreyfus died in 2009.

He left his 59 percent majority stake to a trust and made a commitment that his heirs would buy out minority shareholders from 2012. Group chair Margarita Louis-Dreyfus confirmed in March she was holding talks with the company’s minority shareholders about a stock

market listing, a merger or bringing in a private investor to fund future projects. However, the company’s liquidity needs dropped significantly earlier this year after it sold $2 billion in energy and “several hundred millions” in real estate assets.





Proactive strategies to keep farm business out of hot water PERSPECTIVES ON MANAGEMENT



hey say that if you drop a frog into a pot of boiling water, it will leap out right away. But if you put a frog into a pot filled with cool water and gradually increase the heat until it starts boiling, the frog will not become aware of the change until it is too late. This is similar to managing a farm business. We all know that there can be sudden changes in agriculture, but luckily we’re not frogs and even with sudden change there is usually a reactive option to pursue. Subtle change, on the other hand, is a real factor for all farms. Failing to recognize and adapt to subtle change may result in less-than-desired outcomes. For example, farms can get bigger but management development doesn’t keep pace, resulting in different degrees of uncertainty, stress and poor financial performance. Other farms have not advanced in size or management and find themselves in the difficult situation of trying to catch up. This is especially problematic when intergenerational transfer is looming. Think of farm business development in five-year blocks. The state of a farm today — its size, operational makeup and organizational structure — is really a function of a plan and the related management decisions that evolved over the past five years. The formality of the plan and how it is used in management can vary greatly between farms. The past five years will have included things that affected the farm, both within and outside the control of management. This is a reality of farming. Has the performance over the past five years been good enough? In

other words, are you where you need to be from a family farm perspective, financial perspective and organizational perspective? If the past five-year plan was to replicate over the next five years, does it get you to a place that is satisfactory and meets your family and financial needs? If not, you need to determine what must be done to try to achieve a better outcome. These are important questions. Change, both subtle and extreme, over the next five years will directly affect your farm. There is also the issue of relative change. What are other farms doing compared to yours? Are they improving management performance? Are

they diversifying? Are they expanding? Everyone will want a scenario where the picture five years out meets their needs. It is far better to be proactive and do what can be done to best ensure that it happens. You don’t want to be like the frog and find yourself in a place where your situation and choices are limited or unattractive. Here is a process that you can work through: • Quantitatively and qualitatively assess where things are at today. The quantitative assessment is more straight forward because it is based on numbers and financial statements. Qualitative assess-

ment can be more challenging. Work through a process that reviews goals and objectives, assesses management capability and includes a family discussion on where things are at. • Determine where you think you need to be in five years. • Develop a plan to get there. It doesn’t need to be massive, but it does need to address the relative management strengths and weaknesses. It should include specific actions. • Annually evaluate performance to determine if you’re on track or need to make mid-plan adjustments. We’re admittedly talking about a

future state and a plan designed to get you to a preferred place. It’s a plan that obviously will be affected by change along the way, both sudden and subtle. It’s not about perfection or making quantum change. In virtually all situations, it’s the cumulative effect of many small actions that will provide better outcomes. And being proactive gives you the best chance of avoiding the hot water.

Randy Boni begins to rough out the shape of running horses from a 900-year-old western red cedar tree. Once blocked out, he begins to use smaller saws to create detail. | WENDY DUDLEY PHOTOS MASTER CARVER | PROCESS

Sculptor releases horses captured in ancient logs BY WENDY DUDLEY FREELANCE WRITER

CALGARY — For three weeks, Randy Boni imagined a herd of running horses, their power emerging from the heartwood of a 900-year-old cedar tree. Each day, he blocked out the form and then began to chainsaw the details, shaping muscles, manes, hooves and hocks. “I believe the form is inside the log, waiting to be released,” he said. “The horses are already in there. I just take away ever ything that doesn’t look like the horse. It’s a totally subtractive method.” The grain and roll of the wood guide him as the patterns dictate the way a head or hoof is turned. Boni carved the horses from a massive western red cedar tree trucked in from Vancouver Island. It would have been 400 years old when Columbus landed in North America. Boni spent most of September working on the art piece at the Spruce Meadows equestrian centre south of Calgary, where it will remain on permanent display. The natural art was Boni’s first major horse carving, and he admitted he was initially intimidated by the idea. “I thought I was going to do one horse lying down,” he said. “But when I got here and saw the size of the log, I knew I had to do something bigger. I was nervous. It was like staring in front of a blank canvas.” The log was more than two metres across and four metres long and weighed 6,350 kilograms. “I had never done a full-bodied horse before, so it was a new challenge. And it’s also the biggest log I have ever worked on.” Boni was sponsored in Calgary by long-time supporter Alfred Balm, a businessperson and rancher from Millarville, Alta. He spent months studying horse anatomy before picking up his saw with the 36-inch shaping blade.

He carved a few smaller horses for practice. His trepidation diminished as the ancient red cedar revealed its beauty. It’s an easier wood to carve than the white cedar that grows near his home in eastern Tennessee. Boni said he takes pride in not needlessly harvesting trees for his work. “I take trees that are already down, or trees that have to come down. Through my carving, I like to think that I still give them purpose.” He is considered a master carver but shuns the title. “I am just a humble student. If you think you are a master, then you might as well quit. You can never say

Boni believes the subject is in the tree, and he releases it through his carving. Here, four running horses rise from a heap of cedar shavings.

you have finished learning. I’m just getting going.” Largely self-taught, Boni has shared his skills with carvers in the United States, Canada and Norway. Each year, his family holds a chainsaw carving Rendezvous, attracting artisans from around the world. “You can’t teach someone to be an artist, but you can teach the technical aspects.” Boni was blind until his mid-30s, when he had congenital cataracts removed. He said his fresh sight made him a better carver, seeing details in every living thing. “With the cataracts, I couldn’t see definition, so it was a whole new world for me. For the first time, I

could see veins in a leaf.” His years of blindness also gave him an extra sense. “I carved more from feeling than seeing. The saw knew the way home. Art is very intuitive.” Boni’s chainsaw weighs more than 20 pounds when he uses the threefoot bar. Its weight keeps him in shape, but leaves him stiff and sore at the end of a full day. “It’s a heck of a workout. I often walk several miles a night just to loosen up.” He shuns chisels, executing the fine work with a 12-inch carving bar. “I like the physical part of the chainsaw. In school, I liked shop, art and gym. This combines them together.”

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN SCULPTURE Expert advice for beginners: • Don’t start carving on an old piece of lumber or other found wood as you will probably get discouraged.


• Basswood, aspen, both white woods, and butternut, which is brown, are soft and easy to carve. • To begin, determine which way the wood grain runs. If carving an animal, the grain should run up and down on the fragile parts, like animal legs. • A utility knife or good wood carving knife from a craft store is a good beginner’s tool. Do not use a kitchen knife or a jack knife. • Tools must be sharp, otherwise the wood will rip and tear. Sharp tools take less effort, preventing cuts — and blood stains on the wood. With the utility knife, the blade can be easily replaced when dull, but if using a carving knife, you need to learn how to sharpen it properly.

Food drive keeps donations local

Regions need reliable funding

Tackling hunger | Campaign builds kids’ social responsibility



NIVERVILLE, Man. — Grade 5 students at Niverville School helped fill a trailer with 1,300 pounds of groceries on Oct. 12 as part of their school’s contribution to Drive Away Hunger. Since 2004, the FCC’s national food drive campaign has collected 5.2 million lb. of groceries for food banks across the country. Most comes through its tractor tour where a tractor and trailer arrive in a rural community to collect food. In 2011, FCC will run the tour in Manitoba and British Columbia in addition to Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia. It also collects food at its offices across Canada. Wade Nerbas of FCC in Steinbach, Man., said Niverville School is one of many schools, community groups and businesses in southeastern Manitoba that will donate more than 50,000 lb. of cereal, beans, macaroni and other non-perishables to food banks in the region. Nerbas got involved with the campaign several years ago after attending an FCC conference. “A fellow who’s a 40 year vet of FCC, a big, burly guy, stood up and broke down. He said, ‘I’m doing this because there are hungry kids out there.’ That moment is what impact-

I don’t know what it is, but this is what tugs on me.” Judy Hiebert, Niverville School principal, felt the campaign fit well with October’s theme of nutrition. “Healthy eating helps us have energy to learn and be active,” she

said. “It brings awareness and helps kids reach outside their own home…. It builds social responsibility.” “What I really like about this is that the community gives to their own community,” Hiebert said. “The community knows all this food will stay (here).” The school’s donation will go to

Niverville Helping Hands, a food bank and financial counselling centre in town. “The big emphasis for us is, where it’s collected is where it stays,” said Nerbas. Drive Away Hunger supports eight food banks in southeastern Manitoba.


Body’s metabolism slows with advancing age BY BRYN LEVY SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Our metabolism slows down as we get older, as anyone who noticed a few extra Thanksgiving pounds on the weigh scale can attest. That means our bodies don’t burn off the calories we consume as quickly, which makes it more difficult to maintain a healthy body weight. Unfortunately, Mother Nature doesn’t give us much of a hand because we still need the same levels of nutrients while not being able to consume the same amount of food. Noelle Tourney, a nutritionist and diet consultant in Saskatoon, said that while diet requirements do change depending on one’s age, the basics still apply to everyone. Tourney recommended avoiding saturated and trans fats and eating a varied diet of whole food. A good place to start is emphasizing fruit and

access=subscriber section=farmliving,none,none


vegetables, whole grain, calciumrich products and lean meat, she added. As for specific age groups, Tourney said the Canada Food Guide is silent regarding the need for extra nutrients until age 50. She said people in their 20s and 30s and women of child bearing age who are pregnant or thinking of having kids need to consume more folic acid. A prenatal multivitamin containing 400 micrograms of folic acid is a good way to get more of the nutrient, which helps prevent neural tube

defects, such as spina bifida, in developing fetuses, she added. Women considering having children also need to take more iron to bolster the blood supply available for a baby. Tourney recommended a prenatal multivitamin containing 16 to 20 milligrams of iron. After age 50, Tourney said the body begins to have trouble absorbing certain nutrients from food. Vitamins B12 and D are particular nutrients that people in that age bracket should consider supplementing. Deficiencies in these vitamins could cause anemia, depression and fatigue. “Vitamin D is one that increases with age,” Tourney said. “That’s the one everyone calls the sunshine vitamin. The Canada Food Guide recommends that anyone over 50 consume 400 international units. And that’s just because our bodies have less capacity to produce it through the skin.”

Recommended calcium intake is probably the biggest thing that changes with age. Children and adolescents aged nine to 19 years need the most calcium, said Tourney, who recommended a daily intake of 1,300 mg. She said this was because 45 percent of peak bone mass is formed in this age bracket. Tourney said less calcium is needed after age 19, and 1,000 mg per day should be sufficient for most people. Women older than 50 should increase their calcium intake to 1,200 mg per day to maintain bone density and ward off osteoporosis, she said. “The vitamin D and the calcium kind of work together in bone health.” Tourney said choosing nutrientrich food and avoiding the empty calories found in junk food were the keys to healthy eating. “That just comes down to making smart food choices as we age, and throughout life as well.” access=subscriber section=farmliving,none,none

Funding for Alberta’s urban municipalities should be more predictable, says the leader of the Alberta Party. Glenn Taylor is a three-term mayor of Hinton, Alta., in addition to his party leadership role, so he has firsthand experience with urban municipal funding. “Rural municipalities are in the best position to make choices that impact their municipalities,” Taylor told a Lethbridge gathering Oct. 6. “We don’t see a difference between rural and urban. It’s a matter of scale.” The party’s municipal government policy, which was officially released the day of his presentation, focuses on the premise that 92 cents of every federal and provincial tax dollar collected in Alberta goes to those two governments, leaving eight cents for municipalities. They must provide essential services with that tax base, in addition to whatever grants and other funding methods they are able to arrange. Taylor said municipalities must have a minimal baseline of funding on which they can rely. “We also recognize that many municipalities, in order to continue to exist, need to ensure that they have an equitable base level of funding to deliver the services that make sense for their community,” he said. “So our policy speaks to both of those. A minimum baseline, as well as those large municipalities having access to a more diverse tax base.” Taylor said municipal infrastructure hasn’t been adequately funded in Alberta. As “wards of the province,” cities and towns are “largely subject to the whim of the provincial government’s political agenda, to erratic and unsteady funding and to a lack of respect for local initiatives.” This tends to pit municipalities against each other for available budget. Taylor acknowledged that the municipal sustainability initiative implemented three years ago has helped municipalities, but it provides year to year funding and a cap on amounts provided. He said the solution is to remodel the current structure and give more authority to municipal governments to use a greater portion of property tax revenue to support core services. Taylor also noted that the platform of new Alberta premier Alison Redford, included many ideas shared by the Alberta Party. “It is a platform for change and in that I find hope.” However, he added that the 40-year party dynasty will be difficult for Redford to change. “Change in government in a truly healthy democracy does not come with just a single change in leadership. It’s a new coat of paint on the same old barn.” access=subscriber section=farmliving,none,none





Celebrate Canadian pasta with healthy, homegrown grain TEAM RESOURCES

TORTELLONI CAESAR SALAD 2 c. uncooked cheese 500 mL tortelloni 1 head romaine lettuce caesar salad dressing 1/2 – 1 c. croutons 125 – 250 mL 2 tbsp. ripe black olives, 60 mL sliced 1/4 c. Parmesan cheese, 60 mL grated 1 – 2 tbsp. bacon bits 15 – 30 mL



orld Pasta Day on Oct. 25 is the perfect time to enjoy a variety of pasta made from durum wheat grown on the Canadian Prairies. Western Canadian farmers grow some of the best durum wheat in the world due to the dry climate and quality control. This wheat is ground to produce semolina flour that has good gluten strength and high protein content. When made into pasta, it makes a top quality, flavoured and textured pasta that has a unique golden yellow colour.

Cook tortelloni in boiling salted water, drain and rinse. Pour Caesar salad dressing over the tortelloni and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate. Wash and dry the lettuce and tear into bite-sized pieces. Set aside some of the croutons, olives and bacon bits for garnish. Add the tortelloni to the lettuce and add the remaining olives and bacon bits and toss to mix. Add Parmesan cheese and croutons and more dressing if needed. Toss lightly to mix and then top with the reserved croutons, olives and bacon bits to garnish. Serve immediately as a meal or side dish.

NUTRITIONAL VALUE Canada’s Food Guide recommends five to 12 servings each day of grain products, including pasta, bread or cereals. One-half cup (125 mL) of pasta is equal to one serving. The guide also recommends that more calories should be from complex carbohydrates, with fewer calories from fat and protein. Using pasta as the centre of the meal and adding meat, fish or poultry, cheese and vegetables can make a nutritious, satisfying and budget friendly meal. The key is to avoid high fat toppings and sauces. Whole grain pastas are high in insoluble fibre, which helps to lower blood cholesterol and maintain bowel regularity. They also contain vitamin E and trace minerals like copper and zinc in addition to protein, iron and the B vitamins, riboflavin, niacin and thiamine. Since 1999, Health Canada has required that pasta be fortified with folic acid, also known as folate and folacin. Folic acid plays an important role in the body’s central nervous system and may reduce a woman’s risk of having a child with brain or spinal cord defects. Source: SERVING PASTA CREATIVELY Pasta is easy to prepare and can be eaten in salads, side dishes and main courses, desserts or snacks. Any type of pasta, decorative shape, stuffed or long noodles, can turn a broth into a hearty soup. To add a bit of flair to your family pasta night, cook two or three types of pasta, selecting at least one stuffed variety, then arrange in a divided serving dish. Stir fry fresh vegetables in olive oil, prepare a favourite sauce and add a dish of fresh, grated Parmesan cheese.

THE MANY SHAPES AND SIZES OF PASTA Evidence of pasta or noodle making dates back 5,000 years. In Italy, a particular shape of pasta may be named for the region where it was first made. Pasta has been categorized by shape and then within each category, there are numerous varieties and sizes. For a more complete list of pasta types, refer to

• Long noodles: The most common are the traditional long spaghetti noodles. Variations on the long noodles range from thin hair-like pastas such as capelli d’angelo or angel hair to thicker vermicelli noodles. Udon, Japanese and cu mian are thick cut noodles made with wheat flour rather than rice flour. • Ribbon-cut noodles: The dough is rolled flat and then cut by hand or machine into various widths. Fettuccine includes ribbons of pasta about one-quarter inch (6.5 mL) wide. Lasagne has wide noodles often with fluted edges. Linguine is flattened spaghetti noodles.

ACINI DI PEPE SALAD I enjoyed this at a potluck meal. It is also good served as a summer salad. 2 c. acini di pepe 500 mL pasta 1 - 19 oz. can crushed 540 mL pineapple, drained, reserve juice 1 - 14 oz. can pineapple 398 mL tidbits, drained, reserve juice

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for eight to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain, rinse with cold water and drain well. In a medium saucepan, combine the reserved juices from the pineapple and oranges, reserving one-quarter cup (60 mL). Add the sugar and salt. Beat the eggs until frothy and add to juice mixture. Stirring constantly with a whisk, cook on medium heat until thickening. Mix the cornstarch and reserved juice, add some of the hot sauce to this mixture to warm, stir, then add the cornstarch mixture to the hot mixture. Continue to cook

Pasta dishes can be made with spinach fettuccine, left, whole wheat bows, penne pasta with added oat and chicory root fibres, multigrain fusilli and traditional spaghetti.

• Short-cut extruded pasta: Some of these shapes may be hollow such as traditional macaroni. Penne is larger with diagonally cut ends. Rigatoni, manicotti and cannelloni are all large tubes that can be stuffed with meat or cheese. Fusilli is a ribbon type pasta twisted into spiral shapes and cut into short lengths, often sold in a variety of colours.

• Decorative shapes: Conchiglie pasta is seashell shaped that can be stuffed. Farfalle has a bow tie or butterfly shape, fiori is flower shaped, rotelle is wagon wheel shaped and rotini is tightly wound spirals. • Minute pasta: Acini di pepe is one of the smallest with a round tapioca shape. Pearl pasta is slightly larger than acini di pepe. Alfabeto features small letters of the alphabet, couscous is round rice-sized pasta and orzo is rice shaped pasta. • Stuffed pasta: Ravioli has square pockets about 1.5 x 1.5 inches (3 x 3 cm) that are stuffed with cheese, ground meat, vegetables or a mixture of these. Tortellini is stuffed with a mixture of meat and cheese or just cheese and then curved into a ring shape. Tortelloni can be round or rectangular similar to ravioli or a larger version of tortellini that is usually stuffed with a mixture of cheese and vegetables. Borsetti has a meat filling placed onto a circle of dough, with the edges

pulled together and pinched like a little bouquet. • Irregular shape: Gnocchi features round thumb-sized pasta that is usually made with a mixture of flour and potatoes. Spätzle, a German egg pasta, has an irregular shape.

Pasta dough can be extruded into decorative shapes or small pieces. Tiny acini di pepe pasta, left, decorative wagon wheels, riceshaped orzo and alphabet pasta give dishes variety.





Metal rings put couple in prestigious circles Demand by famous personalities for medieval inspired fashions keeps ring makers in the loop BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Jon and Bernice Daniels have a client list that would make the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top fashion designers salivate. Their chain mail products have been worn by Madonna, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas. The metal rings and scales produced at their manufacturing plant on an acreage 25 kilometres east of Saskatoon have also appeared on American Idol contestants. Business is booming because of the rising popularity of chain mailinspired jewelry and fashion wear. Annual sales are more than $1 million but less than $10 million. Ring Lord manufactures more than 4,700 lines of metal rings, scales, beads, clasps and bindings that are used to make medieval style jewelry and garments popularized by movies such as The Lord of the Rings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re watching carefully, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t watch a dozen movies without seeing a piece of chain mail in there somewhere,â&#x20AC;? said Jon. Their products are made from a broad spectrum of metals including sterling silver, galvanized stainless steel, brass, bronze, nickel, gold, platinum and anodized aluminum. They have a process that creates up to 20 colours from exotic metals such as niobium and titanium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you put it in water and zap it with electricity, it changes colours,â&#x20AC;? said Bernice. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operation is a far cry from the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early days, when the couple made rings out of the same 14 gauge fencing wire that can be bought at Peavey Mart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we started off, that was the chain mail ring that people were making in their basements with a pair of hand cutters.

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re watching carefully, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t watch a dozen movies without seeing a piece of chain mail in there somewhere. JON DANIELS RING LORD

Cochin, Sask., got the business rolling in 1996 while completing his engineering physics degree at the University of Saskatchewan. He found a company while poking around on the internet that sold mild steel chain mail rings for three cents apiece. Jon, who had experience making chain mail when he was a teenager, offered to sell the company rings for one cent apiece. The company bit and Jon shipped out a bag of 1,000 rings. Unfortunately, the company went bankrupt before paying him but the experience planted the seed of what has grown

into a multimillion-dollar business that employs nine people, including the Daniels. By 2000, the couple had formed the Ring Lord and were selling one million rings a month. A year later, the Daniels were forced to move out of their Saskatoon home and buy a 30-acre farm to accommodate their first ring-making machine. By September of that year they were selling five million rings a month. They temporarily operated out of a garage on the farm while building a 120 sq. metre shop.

The shop houses five ring machines, a mechanical saw, a punching machine and a sophisticated packaging machine that creates small plastic bags, labels them and puts in the right quantity of rings. The couple has put engineering degrees to good use in selecting the appropriate machines, figuring out how they work and adjusting them to better meet the businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs. The new machines are computerized, which has made their lives less frenetic. They no longer need to operate a night shift like they did during the first eight years of business. However, Jon refuses to allow the Ring Lord to become 100 percent automated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I keep a half-dozen products that I need to make by hand just to give myself something to do,â&#x20AC;? he said while using a hand cutter to make tiny little rings from a coiled wire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never liked sitting still, so any time I need to sit still I need something to do with my hands, like cutting rings.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not quite as efficient as his machines, each of which can produce 500,000 rings per day. The plant churns through 113,000 kilograms of wire a year to fill the 22,000 web orders that the Ring Lord receives from individual customers and to supply wholesalers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We make enough rings that we have a very large Bobcat and truck just to move wire around,â&#x20AC;? said Jon. The bulk of their business is in the United States, but they ship to customers around the world. Bernice once planned to plot their sales on a world map, but there were too many

red dots. They ship 39,000 kilograms of product by mail a year, which is why UPS and Canada Post make daily trips to the farm to pick up parcels, despite the acreage being out of both companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service areas. Parcel delivery companies are not the only visitors to the farm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ring Mecca. We have people that come up here on their vacation to check out the factory. I think last year someone came up from Texas,â&#x20AC;? said Bernice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a chain mailer and you live in Ottawa and you know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to a conference in Saskatoon, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on your checklist.â&#x20AC;? The company used to manufacture chain mail fabric as well as its individual components, but sold that portion of the business a year ago to three former employees living in Swift Current, Sask. One of the last items they made was a 280 sq. metre chain mail curtain comprising 7.5 million metal rings that was used in a water feature at a casino in Macau. Jon said the chain mail portion of the business had a completely different customer base and business model. They felt it was detracting from the original focus of the company, which was to manufacture rings. However, they still make the occasional garment for special customers. The Ring Lord is constantly evolving, which is what Jon prefers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got here with the philosophy that every time you start to get your feet underneath you, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for something else,â&#x20AC;? he said.





Church stands test of time St. Mary’s Ukrainian Orthodox Church will mark 75 years in 2013 BY KAREN MORRISON SASKATOON NEWSROOM

GRONLID, Sask. — Ukrainian settlers faced many hardships on the untamed Saskatchewan prairie near the turn of the 20th century, but they came together weekly to worship at a small rural church. St. Mary’s Ukrainian Orthodox Church had humble beginnings as a five by six metre log building erected in 1916. Families soon filled every quarter section, enabling a second church to be completed by 1938. Today, the small well-preserved church that was once a focal point for Ukrainian settlers in the district is maintained by a congregation of 22 and a core of dedicated volunteers. Money is scarce so the church shares its priest with 10 other churches. “When the pioneers first came, the first thing they wanted was a gathering place,” said Steve Arsenie, who with his wife, Mary, attends the nine Ukrainian-English services held here each year. “You walk into it and feel right away a presence in here,” Mary said of the star speckled domed ceiling representing the heavens, the white walls symbolizing purity and the sacred iconostasis reserved for the priest and church elders. Religious paintings and stained glassed windows adorn the walls, unique acoustics enrich the hymns and hand embroidered table coverings and vestments date back 70 years. “Something about it stirs your heart,” she said. Built in the traditional style, the church features an expansive dome roof soaring to 24 metres topped by a cross and held up by six metre pillars of solid timbers logged in the district. “One man had a sawmill who sawed all the lumber for it, and all he charged was fuel for running the mill,” said church elder and cattle farmer Jacob Sturby. Ukrainians emigrated here from southern Ukraine in response to the Canadian government’s offer of $10 for 160 acres of unbroken prairie. Many came from large families with only small tracts of land in Ukraine. Sturby and the Arsenies said settlers first stopped at an alkali laden, swampy area of southern Manitoba before relocating to the Gronlid district, where there was good water and sufficient bush for firewood. Sturby recalled regular dances, plays, reunions and fundraisers at the hall across the grid road from the church. “Within half a mile, there could be two dances in two different halls,” said Sturby of the once bustling rural community dotted with small churches. “We had talented people,” said Arsenie. “They had nothing else, just a faith in God. They came over here and they had something.” The church was home to many celebrations. Sturby married his wife, Carol, here to a standing room only congregation. The three-hour services are now one and a half hours. He later baptized his five children here and buried Carol in the cemetery in the shadow of the church.

For Sturby, St. Mary’s is the embodiment of a strong faith that he credits with carrying him through near death experiences on the farm, which included being driven over by a tractor and kicked by a horse. The church bells, as per tradition, are housed in a small white building near the front steps of the church. They were used for services but also as a rallying cry for help in the days before high tech communications. “If you heard the bell ring in the district, you knew there was trouble,” said Sturby. The church was heated with oil and wood, which volunteers would use to start warming the church the day before services. A partial basement was later dug to house a furnace. The church has been re-sided and painted, windows have been replaced, the cemetery stones straightened and trees planted. Electric chandeliers have replaced the wax candles that once brightened the sanctuary. Mary said even the stars were removed, refreshed and reattached. The church has weathered a few storms. Evidence of a lightning bolt that broke a window can still be seen in the split floor board in the sanctuary. Spring flooding in the basement this year is forcing the congregation to buy a new furnace. Fundraising efforts have paid for some improvements, but many volunteers have also contributed their own labour, money and equipment. The church scrapes by on a $12,000 annual budget with an aging congregation in a shrinking community. The church faces an uncertain future as it looks ahead to marking its 75th anniversary in 2013.

Manitoba couple’s interest in wood and design unite Growing the medium | Artists learn how to sustain their woodlot ABOVE: A mix of wood, metal and glass are used in an office desk. RIGHT: Reg uses a rotary tool to carve chess pieces from antlers. BELOW: Stools are constructed from bur oak. | ANNE COTÉ PHOTOS


A spouse’s career in plant breeding gave woodworker Jamie Kucey the chance to tag along and study design around the world. Her husband, Reg Kucey, the director of the Brandon Research Centre from 1996-2003, oversaw the release of AC Metcalfe, a two-row malting barley, and the expansion of the land management section to 11 scientists from two. His work as an agricultural research scientist and biologist took the Kucey family across Canada and beyond. At the same time, Jamie was indulging her passion for wood and longtime interest in architecture and design. At age 40, she enrolled in a carpentry and woodworking course at Assiniboine College. After graduation, she apprenticed with a cabinetmaker to hone her wood crafting skills. In retirement, Reg and Jamie Kucey settled on a farm near Rossburn, Man. Jamie, a certified R2000 builder, built the 1,675 sq. foot bungalow the

Kuceys call home. She used more than 256 panels of bur oak cut from deadwood for the cabinetry and birch planks sawn from trees in the Duck Mountain Provincial Forest for the floors. Once the house was completed, Jamie turned her attention to crafting furniture made from native Manitoba trees. “We have beautiful woods right here. It all depends on how you use it,” she said. The Kuceys rent out approximately 90 acres of their farm for hay. The rest is unsuitable for crops, but ideal as a woodlot or pasture for cattle. Reg and Jamie both took Manitoba Agriculture’s woodlot management and chainsaw certification courses to learn how to sustain a woodlot. They plant between 50 and 250 trees annually on their land to replace those that die off. They plant white spruce to replace the poplar trees because that’s the natural replacement cycle for their forest, said Reg. The Kuceys also plant green ash, Manitoba maple, sea buckthorn and a variety of pines. Jamie uses them in her furniture designs in addition to elm, although Dutch elm disease makes it difficult to obtain the wood. “Elm is a beautiful, beautiful wood, but it never really caught on for North American furniture. Now it’s in danger of extinction, just like grain elevators,” Jamie said. She employs sawyers who look out for unusual trees and lumber for her projects. They find maple on old homesteads and sugar bush deadf a l l s, w h i c h p ro d u c e w i l d re d

Jamie and Reg Kucey grow some of the trees on their Manitoba farm to produce unique furniture. coloured wood. The oak she uses comes from the area around Neepawa and McCreary. “This wood is very special and sometimes it takes several years to match the right project to the right timber,” Jamie said. “Poplar, when cut properly, has almost an iridescent finish,” she said. One of Jamie’s creations is the Rubalyat, a chess table with two stools constructed from bur oak. Since he left the Brandon Research Centre, Reg has learned to carve and likes to create whimsical chess pieces. Each one is carved from antlers using a rotary tool and adorned with Swarovski crystals. “I can’t draw so I had to learn to do something else,” said Reg, whose first attempt was a slingshot for his son. ”Nothing goes to waste. If my original idea for the carving doesn’t turn out, it becomes something else.” Both Reg and Jamie look forward to expanding their art. “We’re not retiring, we’re retreading,” Jamie said.
