But most agree that within a couple years after the end of the marketing monopolies it will become clear whether an independent Canadian industry will exist or if foreign multinationals will take over. “I think we’re going to be in for some major, major change here overr n the next couple of years,” said Adrian Measner, chief executive officer off Mission Terminal, owned by Soumat, and a former chief executivee officer of the Canadian Wheat Board. “I think you’ll find (multinationall grain companies) a lot more activee h and I think we’re going to go through a period of rationalization here overr the next two to three years.” University of Manitoba agriculturall n economist Ed Tyrchniewicz, a grain industry analyst, said he thinks thee changes will be more a form of evolution than devastation.

Winnipeg expansion shows commitment to industry, say hog marketers BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Farmers should be happy that Maple Leaf Foods is re-engineering its meat processing system, hog marketers and analysts say. Even though it is closing a number of plants — including a bacon plant in North Battleford, Sask. — its choice to build Winnipeg into a world-competitive plant and its modernization of the Saskatoon operation shows there will be demand for prairie pigs in Brandon for years to come, they say. “It looks like Maple Leaf is committed to Manitoba for the long term,” said Hams Marketing general manager Perry Mohr. That view is shared by Brent Moen, the chair of Alberta’s Western Hog Exchange. “The fact that they’re building a world scale plant and consolidating operations into that plant is good for producers,” said Moen, whose organization sells most of its pigs to Olymel in Red Deer. “It has to be good for our industry. Whether it is Maple Leaf or Olymel or anyone who further processes pork, better plants can create better demand.” Maple Leaf’s massive restructuring has several components: • Shutting plants from Moncton, N.B. to Coquitlam, B.C. • Closing the North Battleford bacon plant, cutting 332 jobs, by the end of 2013. • Shutting the Winnipeg Hot Rod meat stick plant in Winnipeg, losing 27 employees, in late 2014. access=subscriber section=news,none,none


The Canadian grain trade has a good asset base and trading ability. There’s certainly life for the grain trade going forward.

I think there will be some companies disappearing here in Winnipeg. What that is depends on how the larger players establish themselves in Winnipeg.

Pundits speak: what happens next?

There is going to be costs incurred during this crop year. We need to clean up the balance sheet so that we can have a clean starting point at Aug. 1.

We’re cognizant of the fact that this (transition WWW.PRODUCER.COM costs) should not come out of the pools because we don’t want to be saddling farmers with these costs.






What happens next? “It’s not as huge a deal as people are making it out to be,” said Tyrchniewicz. “There will obviously be adjustments, but I don’t see it on the magnitude of an earthquake.” The projections of the Canadian industry disappearing have been repeatedly made by CWB chair Allen Oberg and by monopoly supporters. Oberg repeated those claims the week the government introduced its monopoly-breaking legislation. “ This government ’s re ckless approach will throw Canada’s grain industry into disarray,” said Oberg. “Canada is the last country in the world where giant multinational grain companies cannot source wheat. If the wheat board’s single desk is abolished, that will change. We will see a fundamental shift of marketing power and wealth away from prairie farmers and into the hands of huge, foreign-based companies.” There is a major difference in how different parties in the debate see the impact of the monopoly’s end on the industry. Monopoly supporters generally believe the CWB, with its complexity and regulatory power, is a crucial lynchpin that forces companies to have a large administrative presence in Canada, or for those companies to not be big players in the Canadian grain industry. They say that is why Canada still has Canadian-owned grain companies such as Richardson International and Viterra, and why Cargill has a big head office in Winnipeg. Without the board’s unique marketing complications, global giants will swoop in, buy up Canadian companies, shut down the head offices and run their Canadian operations out of their global headquarters in other countries. Some global businesses involved in Canadian canola, such as Archer Daniels Midland and Bunge, are not now significant players in Canadian wheat and don’t have Canadian head offices to administer their canola operations. But people in much of Winnipeg’s grain trade say the industry is deeply rooted in Canada, was around for decades before the wheat board was created, and has no interest is selling out or shutting down just because the wheat board goes. “The Winnipeg grain trade right now, the core of it, is Cargill and the Richardsons. They’re not going anywhere,” said Brian Hayward, former United Grain Growers and Agricore United CEO. Hayward said if foreign companies decide to get more involved in the

NEWS Canadian grain trade, they would likely want to have a Canadian subsidiary headquarters. In recent weeks companies including Cargill have created new jobs to handle marketing roles now done by the CWB, and companies Richardson International have hired high level CWB staff. And while the C WB has been shrinking in recent years, small companies have been growing in its shadow, hoping to take over the board’s marketing role. The services to farmers and jobs they provide shouldn’t be ignored, they say. “I started this little company with my husband in our basement and we’ve grown it to a staff of 30 in eight or nine years,” said Brenda Tjaden Lepp, co-owner of FarmLink Marketing Solutions, whose office is only three blocks from the CWB head office in Winnipeg. “We’re providing quite a lot of value to farmers. The wheat board doesn’t have a monopoly on providing marketing for farmers.” Paterson GlobalFoods also thinks the basis of the Canadian grain industry won’t disappear along with the CWB’s monopolies. “We’ve been around 103 years,” said Paterson vice-president Keith Bruch, noting that Parrish and Heimbecker has been around 102 years and the Richardsons for more than 150. “The grain trade has been here a long time. It has deep roots. The Canadian grain trade has a good asset base and trading ability. There’s certainly life for the grain trade going forward.” Measner said he thinks the Canadian based grain trade will continue to exist post-monopoly, but that foreign companies will probably come in and either set up offices or try to buy up Canadian companies. “I think there will be some companies disappearing here in Winnipeg.”

Maple Leaf changes signal bright forecast • Investing $420 million in two Ontario plants making processed pork and chicken products, creating 757 jobs. • Expanding the Winnipeg bacon, ham and sausage production plant by $85 million and 334 employees. • Expanding the Saskatoon wiener, sausage and lunch meat plant by $45 million, but no additional employees. • Total cost $550 million. Maple Leaf Foods chief executive officer and its biggest shareholder, Michael McCain, said his company needed to scrap old plants and create new, world class ones to compete with plants operating in the U.S. That thinking makes sense to meat market analyst Kevin Grier of the George Morris Centre in Guelph, Ont. A low Canadian dollar allowed Canadian processors to put off investing in state of the art technology for years, but that’s no longer possible. “The processing industry has been behind and they’ve gotten away with it because they could, but more and more product is coming in from the United States (to Canada), and so to compete they have to operate at scale,” said Grier. Canadian packers have long complained about high wages making them less competitive than U.S. packers, but processors have also suffered from operating plants that were built decades ago for smaller production systems. There are only a handful of slaughter plants in Canada, but many processing plants. Mohr said it makes sense for Maple Leaf to consolidate its operations and improve technology at its plants. “They will probably use as much robotics as they possibly can to minimize costs,” he said. In theory, Maple Leaf should be able to pay farmers more for their pigs at Brandon if they can make more money from the sales of pork products made in Winnipeg and Saskatoon and Brampton and Kitchener, Ont. “If this plant does everything that Maple Leaf says it will do, it should free up some money to flow back to producers,” said Mohr. “At the end of the day, it’s useless unless there are pigs to flow through that facility.” Manitoba Pork Council chair Karl Kynoch said farmers and pork processors have suffered for years, so the announcement that Winnipeg’s plant would be expanded and Saskatoon’s modernized put a smile on his face. “Finally, a good hog day,” said Kynoch. “To see Maple Leaf invest $85 million in the Lagimodiere (Road) plant, and the fact that we have the newest processing plant in Brandon, means Maple Leaf is saying we’re here for the long term.” Grier said Maple Leaf’s world scale plant in Winnipeg will match nicely its world scale slaughter plant in Brandon. Moen said farmers are always worried that processors will abandon the industry if they can’t make money, so it is a relief to see long-term capital invested in pork processing. “It shows they are definitely committed to their business,” said Moen. “They should be applauded for that.”

Agriculture not election priority Nov. 7 election looms | Crop, hail insurance highlighted by parties in agriculture platforms BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Farmers and ranchers looking for specific promises from the two main Saskatchewan political parties will have to dig deep into their election platforms. The Saskatchewan Party and the New Democrats released their full platforms last week in advance of the Nov. 7 vote. Neither highlighted agriculture as a main priority. Saskatchewan Party leader Brad Wall said Oct. 24 farmers have been wellserved by his government over the past four years, beginning with loans offered to beleaguered cattle producers just after he took office in 2007. “ The best indicator of future behaviour is past behaviour,” he said. The Saskatchewan Party platform lists expanded agricultural extension offices, the Farm and Ranch Water Infrastructure program and taking over administration of AgriStability as evidence of the government’s commitment to farmers. Improvements made to crop insurance after a review in 2008 were long overdue, Wall said, and the unseeded


acreage benefit was boosted from $50 to $70 per eligible acre this year to help those who were flooded. Wall said he has a good relationship with prime minister Stephen Harper and has obtained support for producers when needed. “People can expect more of that from us should we be fortunate enough to form the government,” he said of his track record. The Saskatchewan Party platform said it will continue to improve crop insurance programs and “other services” for farmers and ranchers. The document also contains an allocation of $1 million to establish an institute for global food security at the University of Saskatchewan. The NDP is promising to improve

crop insurance by spending $50 million per year to reintroduce spot loss hail coverage. Leader Dwain Lingenfelter has talked about the change since taking over the leadership in 2009. Spot loss hail was eliminated in 2002 by the then-NDP government. “It’s one of the issues that I still hear farmers talk about,” he said last week. “Upon election, we’ll start the rigorous debate with Ottawa about how the spot loss hail will be implemented.” The NDP platform document also promises to extend crop insurance coverage to market gardeners and to offer more relief for wildlife damage. The current crop insurance program already offers 100 percent compensation for wildlife damage. The party reiterated its support for the Canadian Wheat Board. The platforms for the Green and Liberal parties don’t make any agricultural promises. The Progressive Conservatives oppose allowing pension funds to invest in Saskatchewan farmland and “would ensure that the growth of farmland limited partnerships do not become a threat to the viability of


our family farm base or the economic health of our rural communities.” Nominations closed Oct. 22 with 191 candidates in the 58 constituencies. The Saskatchewan Party, NDP and Green party are running full slates. The Liberals are running nine candidates, the Progressive Conservatives are running five and the Western Independence Party two. A Regina man is running as an independent in Regina Qu’Appelle Valley. The number of candidates is down from 239 in 2007, mainly because the Liberals fielded candidates in all constituencies in that election. Leader Ryan Bater said the decision was made to focus attention on his seat in The Battlefords. access=subscriber section=news,none,none




Tallying it up: who pays windup costs? BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The federal government left lingering questions last week about the costs of moving away from singledesk grain marketing and who will pay the tab. David Anderson, parliamentary secretary for the Canadian Wheat Board, said in a parliamentary debate that farmers “should not be left alone” to deal with the extraordinary costs of winding down the monopoly. He said the government will assist with those costs while being responsible with taxpayer dollars. However, Canadian Wheat Board chair Allen Oberg said that sounds a lot like cost sharing. “That’s what I read into that, which is a very different message than we were hearing from government earlier on.” Oberg said farmers shouldn’t be picking up the costs of an initiative forced down their throats by the federal government. Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz sounded more definitive than Anderson about who will pay the transition costs. “We’re cognizant of the fact that this should not come out of the pools because we don’t want to be saddling farmers with these costs,” he said in an interview. “We want to be sure that the new entity has a chance to survive without carrying a huge mortgage right off the start.” The wheat board has put together estimates in conjunction with KPMG suggesting the transition to a voluntary board could cost as much as $500 million. CWB chief financial officer Brita Chell said the expenses associated with moving from a monopoly controlling 20 million tonnes of grain a year to a much smaller voluntary entity are going to happen quickly. “There is going to be costs incurred during this crop year. We need to clean up the balance sheet so that we can have a clean starting point at Aug. 1.” There will be five categories of expenses: • Renegotiating debt instruments — The new entity isn’t going to access=subscriber section=news,none,none

need the $1.26 billion in borrowings that was on the books at the end of 2010. There could be costs associated with getting rid of that old debt and negotiating new loans, depending on market conditions. • Renegotiating operational contracts — Arrangements such as terminal agreements and freight contracts for moving grain through the Great Lakes were

negotiated when the CWB was a much bigger entity. “We aren’t going to have that kind of volume in the future,” said Chell. “We will have to either get out of those contracts or renegotiate those contracts, and as with anything there’s always penalties and costs associated with that.” One big contract that may have to be renegotiated is the deal with Algoma Central Corp. to spend $65

million on the construction of two new ships. Chell said the new voluntary CWB may still need the vessels, but there is a chance the contract would have to be broken, which again would involve penalties. • Liquidation of fixed assets — “In a smaller organization we wouldn’t have a need for all those desks and chairs and big computer systems,” said Chell. The CWB had about $130 million

worth of computer systems on the books as of July 31, 2010. These are customized systems related to pooling that would be worthless to other companies, so there could be a significant hit to the balance sheet if it had to get rid of them. • Other considerations related to finalizing the pool accounts after July 31 — It will take a few months to wrap things up, which will entail labour and other expenses. • Paying out severance costs and pensions for some of the CWB’s 430 employees who will be losing their jobs. Ritz called the KPMG estimates “staggering in scope” and “unbelievable.” “I don’t think the wind down costs will be anything like what the wheat board is predicting,” he said. A senior Agriculture Canada official who did not want to be identified said the CWB’s estimates were based on the organization ceasing to exist rather than continuing as a voluntary board as envisioned in the legislation. Renegotiating contracts and maintaining some CWB staff would minimize those costs. There may also be discrepancies in what the CWB and the government thinks are reasonable expenditures, such as those related to severance packages. That is why the federal government will be hiring an accounting firm to go through the CWB’s books and developing its own cost estimates. The firm is expected to travel to Winnipeg in the next couple of months.

Tories push through contentious bill BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Farmers and farm group officials listen to Bill Gehl, chair of the Canadian Wheat Board Alliance, speak to the crowd.

In the early evening of Oct. 24, the Conser vatives accomplished a decades-long dream for many supporters, winning a parliamentary vote that will lead to abolition of the Canadian Wheat Board monopoly. With 39 MPs not in the House of Commons, the final vote on second reading approval-in-principle for Bill C-18 was 151-118. All opposition MPs opposed it. Conser vative MPs, who hold a majority government, greeted the result with prolonged applause. The bill now will go to a special legislative committee for what is expected to be relatively fast approval. Membership of the committee was to have been announced by Oct. 27. Unlike a standing Commons committee such as agriculture, a special legislative committee typically examines the details of legislation rather than the broad principles. Opposition critics said it was an attempt by the government to exclude witnesses from re-debating the merits or disadvantages of the 68-year-old CWB single desk. The government has vowed to get the bill out of Parliament by midDecember. The legislation would abolish the single desk Aug. 1, 2012, and put the wheat board in the hands of five government-appointed directors. All 10 elected directors will be dismissed when C-18 become law. The final day of debate before the government forced the vote Oct. 24 after just three days included drama, accusations, a crucial ruling by speaker Andrew Sheer and an allegation that prairie Conservative MPs who also produce grain were in a conflict of interest. Winnipeg Centre New Democrat Pat Martin said MPs are bound by a conflict-of-interest code that they are not allowed to take part in debates or Commons votes that could change policy in a way that would benefit them or their families. He said if the Conservatives believe their argument that an end to the board monopoly will improve farmer returns, then they will benefit and should not have voted.

“There’s at least seven, if not more, possibly nine Conservative MPs who are engaged in grain farming or at least their families are at this point that I believe are in direct conflict of interest,” Martin said. He named Alberta’s Ted Menzies, Rob Merrifield, Leon Benoit, Kevin Sorenson and Earl Dresshen, as well as David Anderson and Randy Hoback from Saskatchewan, and said there could possibly be two others. Martin noted that when the Commons debated and voted on a government bailout for the auto industry during the recession, two Ontario Conservatives with car dealerships stood aside from the vote. Conservative MPs that the New Democrat MP pestered about potential conflict either laughed it off or ignored the point. During the final hours of debate, Conservatives challenged the validity of the CWB-sponsored plebiscite that found 62 percent of wheat farmers and 51 percent of barley farmers in favour of the single desk. Saskatchewan MP David Anderson, parliamentary secretary on the CWB file, talked about a “little old lady” who approached a politician to say her brother and sister both received ballots but they were dead. He said opposition MPs should not give “credence to such a flawed survey.” Meanwhile, Scheer cleared the way for the evening vote earlier in the day when he ruled against Liberal Wayne Easter, who had argued that the bill was illegal because the government is not following the rules requiring a farmer vote in the CWB Act. C-18 will abolish the CWB Act. Scheer sided with government arguments that governments have the right to amend or abolish legislation passed by a former government. He cited a parliamentary authority to make his point. Peter Hogg’s volume on parliamentary rules says: “Not only may the Parliament or Legislature, acting within its allotted sphere of competence, make any law it chooses, it may repeal any of its earlier laws,” Hogg wrote. “This citation rightfully underscores Parliament’s continued right to legislate,” ruled Sheer. access=subscriber section=news,none,none


Harvest canola despite green seed, says agronomist Avoid overwintering in field | Scavenging rodents hurt yields and mould reduces grain quality BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Growers waiting for green seed counts to drop before harvesting canola should rethink that approach, says the Canola Council of Canada. The only way that will happen is if rain and humidity lift canola moisture back above 20 percent. But if moisture levels get that high there is a good chance the crop would not dry down again enough to harvest before snowfall. “The best bet would be to harvest

the crop now to maintain the yield and quality that’s there and start looking for buyers,” said Kristen Phillips, agronomy specialist with the council. “If canola stays in the field all winter, high green seed counts won’t be your only quality issue.” Canola that overwinters is often downgraded to sample due to mould damage and free fatty acids in the oil. There are also yield losses from shelling, rodents and a drop in bushel weight. Growers who have already com-

bined canola with high green seed counts should consider marketing the crop as soon as possible. “Early delivery is ideal because canola with a higher percentage of green seeds tends to spoil faster,” said Phillips. Discounts for high green seed counts are not as high as discounts for heated canola, which can be a real problem for growers storing high green seed canola. Growers should check bins frequently and may need to move the grain around to ensure hot pockets

are identified right away. Daryl Beswitherick, program manager for quality assurance at the Canadian Grain Commission, said the green seed problem is no bigger this year than in a normal year. “There are no alarm bells going off. We talked with the industry. Nobody is real anxious about it that we’ve heard,” he said. Chlorophyll content in the 1,208 samples of No. 1 canola analyzed by the commission as of Oct. 21 was 13.8 milligrams per kilogram, which is above the 12.6 mg/kg in the 2010

harvest but lower than the 15.4 mg/ kg in the 2009 survey. Beswitherick said the number will likely rise because some canola still in the fields in Alberta reportedly contains a lot of green seed. But he doesn’t believe it will reach a level that would be considered beyond normal. Phillips said growers may be able to blend some of their green seed contaminated canola with better quality product but if the level of contamination is too high, the council has a list of companies that buy downgraded product. access=subscriber section=news,crops,none

Customer opinion mixed on CWB change Foreign buyers in the dark | Some buyers look forward to an open market, others worry quality will suffer order is what you get when you order Canadian wheat,” said Smyth. His customers want concrete evidence that they can count on sourcing the same consistent quality of wheat in a post-single desk environment that they received under the CWB monopoly.


Canadian wheat buyers are expressing feelings that range from neglect and confusion to relief and anticipation in the wake of legislation intended to pave the way for an open market for wheat and barley. Some say they have been left in the dark throughout the process. “This has all been about farmers. I don’t think anyone has talked to customers, which is perhaps a little surprising given that more than three-quarters of Canadian wheat is exported,” said Jeffrey Smyth, president of Database Analysts Ltd. Smyth is a Canadian-based consultant who has worked with Japanese food companies for more than 40 years. Japan is Canada’s second biggest export market for wheat. His customers feel abandoned by a process that didn’t include input from foreign buyers and confused about how to proceed come Aug. 1, 2012 when Canada transitions to an open market. Smyth said the way that the change has happened flies in the face of what is taught in Marketing 101. “You usually start with what the customer wants and work your way back as to how to provide it. In this case we seem to be starting from the o t h e r e n d a n d ju s t ma k i n g a n assumption that this is going to be fine with the customers,” he said. There could be repercussions. When a buyer operates in a market characterized by “confusion and no information,” they tend to gravitate to alternative markets that offer certainty and familiarity. “(Buyers) do have other options. There are other people in the world selling wheat,” said Smyth. Gordon Harrison, president of the Canadian National Millers Associaaccess=subscriber section=markets,none,none


Some international buyers want assurances that grain quality will be maintained. | FILE PHOT0 tion, represents a group that is the largest buyer of Canadian wheat. His members like to manage supply and price risk by forward contracting their wheat for up to 12 months. They were concerned they wouldn’t be able to enter into such agreements for the 2012-13 crop year. “We are pleased to see that (Bill) C-18 contains provisions in Part 1 that will allow producers and the rest of the supply chain to do this as soon as the bill receives royal assent. The remaining uncertainty is when that will occur,” said Harrison in an e-mail. He was also pleased with the affirmation that the CWB will retain con-

trol over the marketing of the entire 2011 crop and stocks from prior harvests. “Canadian millers and their customers in particular need this certainty and we are pleased to see that the interests of customers have been recognized in drafting (Bill) C-18 and (in) the minister’s transition plan.” The United States is Canada’s top export market for wheat and durum. The North American Millers’ Association, whose members represent about 95 percent of U.S. milling capacity, is pleased the single desk is being eliminated. “That has been NAMA’s position for more than 10 years,” said the association in an e-mail.

“We must have access to Canadian wheat, regardless of the seller. Currently there is only one seller but we look forward to the day when millers can buy from many sellers. More competition in a free market would be best.” Smyth saw nothing in the legislation addressing the biggest concern for the Japanese food companies he represents; how Canada will continue to provide the best wheat in the world when an organization that had a lot to do with maintaining that quality will have a diminished role. “The Japanese will pay up to 10 percent more for Canadian wheat than wheat that comes from anywhere else in the world because what you

David Anderson, parliamentary secretary for the CWB, addressed that concern during the parliamentary debate surrounding Bill C-18. “It is farmers who grow the grain, not the Canadian Wheat Board. The quality will not change because of the changes we would make,” he said. “The Canadian Grain Commission would continue to provide its services, regardless of who is marketing the grain.” But CWB chair Allen Oberg said quality will be a casualty of the move to an open market. “Over time, we’ll move to an American-type system,” he said. That will mean a shift in focus to quantity from quality. “Everybody out there will just be interested in volumes and making sales.” Oberg said the CWB played a crucial role in maintaining quality by providing customer feedback to the wheat industry, such as their concerns with the Grandin and Alsen wheat varieties. “It was at the wheat board’s insistence that those varieties were pulled out of the system.”


Companies may seek fewer grain classes to simplify handling BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Farmers might market fewer classes and grades of wheat in a postmonopoly world. Economists and industry players expect the wide waterfront of Canadian Wheat Board wheat divisions to narrow once the board no longer controls the huge western Canadian crop. “The wheat board was obligated to take this grain from farmers. A grain company is not,” said agricultural


economist Ed Tyrchniewicz. “My guess is that there will be pressure to simplify the grading system.” Canada’s grain system has many wheat divisions by class and grade,

far more than most other countries. Experts say that is because the CWB takes control of a vast western Canadian wheat crop and can identify exact amounts of product it has to sell. Even small amounts of specific qualities and grades can be marketed by a large agency that can combine shipments from many sources. However, some analysts say grain companies in an open market will not be able to be sure of supplies that they haven’t yet bought. As well, they might not know for

sure how much of any specific class and quality they can safely contract to a buyer. They also might not want to handle so many different divisions of wheat because it makes grain handling more complex and less efficient. With less security of supply and a high cost of handling small quantities of specific types, companies will probably want to handle fewer, larger divisions of wheat. “There will probably be fewer segregations in the system just because they will be less affordable,” said Uni-

versity of Saskatchewan agricultural economist Richard Gray. University of Manitoba Transport Institute analyst Paul Earl told the recent Fields on Wheels conference in Winnipeg that wheat divisions might become simpler, but wheat would always be a more complex commodity because its end uses are more complex. Wheat millers have more specialized needs than the one simple standard on which crops like lentils and canola are built. access=subscriber section=markets,none,none



Cam Dahl, a former Canadian Grain Commission commissioner, said a post-monopoly grain system will see farmers contracted to grow specialized wheat. “I think you’re going to see more contracts like the Warburton’s contract, where you have specific mills and buyers in other countries ‌ contracting for specific varieties,â€? said Dahl. Wheat marketing could become more complex and variety specific, which is not common now.


Barry Senft, a former Canadian International Grains Institute head and former vice-president of Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, said buyers and processors will have the biggest impact on what grain companies choose to buy from farmers. “Canada will be tailoring the wheat to fit that particular customer,� said Senft. “It depends what the customer wants.� The CWB is now required to move all the non-feed wheat that farmers produce. It tries to encourage them to grow types of wheat that buyers want and will pay for, but has to market the grain regardless. However, after the monopoly disappears, no one will be forced to move wheat types or grades for which there isn’t a strong demand or can’t be moved easily. Tyrchniewicz said farmers will need to check with grain companies and marketers about what buyers want them to produce. He also said grain companies will push for the grain commission to drop micro-divisions of quality because they add little value but add much complexity to grain storage and handling. Many farmers prefer multiple wheat divisions because it allows the CWB to obtain premiums for providing buyers with specialized products, but others wish wheat was less onerous to store, market and move. Regardless of what farmers want, Tyrchniewicz thinks grain companies will push hard to make wheat less of a drag on their systems. Other commodities move with far greater efficiency and less cost. “Other grain grading systems in wheat are much, much less complicated,� said Tyrchniewicz. “I think it can be simplified. If other countries can simplify it, why can’t we?�




Grain companies get contracts ready Forward contracts | Richardson hopes for level playing field with voluntary board BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Major grain companies operating in Western Canada’s new marketing environment say they will waste no time rolling out forward contracting opportunities for producers. Executives with the companies, including Viterra and Richardson International, said they will begin offering forward contracts on wheat, durum and non-feed barley as soon as legislation ending the Canadian Wheat Board’s marketing monopoly receives parliamentary approval. Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz has said the majority Conservative government will ensure that legislation is passed before Jan. 1. If that happens, grain company contracts for the delivery of board grain after Aug. 1, 2012, could be unveiled later this year or early next. “That should be immediate from Viterra’s perspective,� said Fran Malecha, the company’s chief operating officer for grain. “I think we will be able to give farmers price signals for Aug. 1 and forward as soon as possible. We’re kind


of targeting Jan. 1 of the New Year; that’s assuming that legislation is passed in late December.â€? Malecha said legislation would allow Viterra to use its assets more efficiently and free up capacity. “I think we see this as an opportunity to move to the next level of efficiency in moving grain from farmer to end user. We all know that there are times when capacity is constrained ‌ so the more efficiently we can use that capacity, the better for the whole industryâ€? he said. Jean Marc Ruest, vice-president of Richardson International, offered similar views, saying his company will begin offering contracts for Aug. 1 delivery as soon as legislation receives royal assent. “This path forward has been made quite clear by the government for

some period of time now so we’ve taken the steps required to at least start preparing for that eventuality,â€? he said. Eliminating single-desk selling enables grain companies to manage their facilities more efficiently, leading to better service for farmers and end users, he said. He was surprised the legislation offers government guarantees to a voluntary wheat board for five years. Richardson anticipated it would offer concessions during the transition period, but the five-year term is longer than expected. The fact that the voluntary board will be free to deal in both board and non-board crops such as canola compounds those concerns. “We don’t fear competition from anyone and in fact we’ve welcomed it on the non-board side of things ‌ but we need to understand or be reassured that ‌ we’ll be competing against them on an equal footing in a commercial environment and that we won’t be competing at a disadvantage to this entity,â€? Ruest said. Independent grain broker Allan Johnston of Welwyn, Sask., called the

proposed legislation a welcome change that will attract more investment in Western Canada’s grain handling, milling and processing. “I was just delighted to hear it was happening finally,� Johnston said. If legislation is passed, Johnston predicted there will be a learning curve as farmers become accustomed to the new marketing environment. “Within six to 12 months, they’ll see it’s not going to be any different than marketing your canola, or your flax, or your oats, or your peas, or anything else,� he said. Johnston believes the changes will generate more business for his company. He has already been in touch with at least one large American grain broker seeking top quality wheat. “We will almost certainly grow with this opportunity, but that’s not the reason I’m supporting (the changes),� he said. “I just don’t think it (maintaining the single desk) is the right thing to do.� He said he has no qualms about the voluntary board or with Ottawa offering financial guarantees. access=subscriber section=markets,none,none


Protein an issue in Australia’s large wheat crop BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Australia’s early harvest returns suggest high protein wheat could be in short supply in that country. PentAG Nidera Pty Ltd., an Australian grain marketer, said in a recent weekly market report that protein levels in the crop coming off in central and southwestern Queensland have typically been below 12 percent. A lot of the crop only graded Australian Standard White at 10 percent protein, it added. “Clearly the market is becoming increasingly concerned over disappointing early har vest quality results,� said the company. A poor finish to the growing season in northern and central New South Wales and forecasts for more rain in coming weeks in those areas is adding to concerns, PentAG said in its Oct. 19 report.

Bruce Burnett, director of weather and market analysis with the Canadian Wheat Board, has heard similar reports from Australia. “For us it is reasonably good news. It does reduce the supply of higher protein wheat the Australians will have to sell in the upcoming year.� Most of Australia’s quality wheat is produced in Queensland and northern New South Wales. That part of the country is expected to produce a high-yielding wheat crop because of good rainfall during the growing season, but low protein levels often accompany high yields. “We’re hearing that there isn’t an awful lot of 13 percent Aussie wheat,� said Burnett. He cautioned that Australia is still in the early stages of a harvest that will last close to six weeks. Signs point to a near record size Australian crop of close to 21 million tonnes. A poor quality Australian wheat

crop would help offset an exceptionally high protein U.S. crop. The average protein content for the 2011 U.S. hard red spring crop is 14.6 percent compared to 13.7 percent last year and a five-year average of 14.2 percent. Global protein premiums collapsed in the wake of the U.S. winter wheat harvest. Burnett doesn’t think a poor quality Australian crop would lead to a recovery in premiums, but it would make it easier to sell high protein Canadian spring wheat. However, there is a limited supply of that type of wheat this year. The average protein content in this year’s Canada Western Red Spring wheat crop is 13.2 percent, compared to the long-term average of 13.5 to 13.6 percent. Wheat markets will closely watch the Australian harvest to see if growers are in for a repeat of 2010, when late-season rain spoiled the quality

of a great-looking crop. Forecasters say La Nina is making a return, which usually means more wet weather is in store for Australia. “Everybody is a little on edge,� said Burnett. “We’ll have to monitor the weather pretty closely to see whether Australia has big wet weather problems with their crop.� Drew Lerner, president of World Weather Inc., doesn’t expect conditions to be too soggy in eastern Australia. “I’m not thinking we’re going to have a huge problem, but we will have some of the late crop that will experience some more wet weather,� he said. Harvest weather looks pretty good for the next couple of weeks, but after that Queensland and New South Wales could become wetter. “There will be some more quality issues but definitely not a widespread serious problem,� said Lerner. access=subscriber section=markets,none,none

Fed cattle sales rose to capture price increase

FED PRICE RALLIES The Canfax weighted weekly average fed steer price was $110.15 per hundredweight, up $1.21, and heifers were $110.37, up $1.81. Tight market-ready volume lifted prices, but the rising loonie limited gains. Large volume packages proved desirable because packers were eager to acquire inventory. Some producers opted to ramp up offerings because of the bounce in prices from last week. Accumulated sales totalled 21,198, up 30 percent from the previous week. The cash-to-futures basis has narrowed for three weeks, closing last week at -$13.76. Weekly fed exports to the United States totalled 8,588 head, down 12 percent from the previous week. The strong U.S. fed market provides a solid price foundation to the Canadian market. Tight processing margins and difficulty in getting retailers and consumers to accept higher beef prices could cause packers to reduce slaughter.

COWS WEAKER A better supply of non-fed cattle pressured prices lower. D1, D2 slaughter cows were $62$72 to average $67.11 per cwt., down access=subscriber section=markets,none,none


75 cents. D3s were $52-$68 to average $60.07, down 50 cents. Dressed slaughter cows were $128$132. Butcher bull prices slipped almost $1 lower. Weekly non-fed exports to Oct. 8 fell to 2,988 head.

FEEDERS STRONGER Average Alberta stocker and feeder prices were the highest since October 2001. With harvest mostly concluded and excellent feeder prices, a substantial volume of 400-700 pound calves went to market. Feeders steers on average were up $1.87 per cwt. and heifers rose $2.58. Auction volume was up 67 percent over the previous week. It was only the fourth time that weekly auction volumes were larger than the previous year. Weekly feeder exports to Oct. 8 were light, down three percent from the previous week to 494 head. A good volume of fall calves is expected at auctions and special calf sales. Good buyer interest should continue. Bred cows were $1,250-$1,550.

BEEF LOWER U.S. beef cut-out values traded almost $1 US lower on moderate demand and a light to moderate offering. The Choice-Select spread continued wide but steady at $17.76. The Montreal wholesale market for delivery this week rose to $202-$204 Cdn. Weekly Canadian cut-out values to Oct. 14. saw a wider spread and lower values with AAA cutouts down $1.58 at $173.61 Cdn per cwt. AA cutout was $3.87 lower at $164.71.

China taps on brakes MARKET WATCH



he panic that hit markets in late summer seems to be abating as Europe addresses its debt crisis and monthly data indicates the United States is not falling into a second recession. Stock markets have made up September losses and quarterly corporate profit reports are mostly strong. The loonie is again near par and Brent crude is about $110 per barrel . Can we hope that crop markets will

not be hit again by panic washing in from the wider economy? The relative market calm rests on tentative foundations. The next source of worry might be the economic health of China, the world’s second largest economy. Its gross domestic product grew by only 9.1 percent in the third quarter, the slowest pace in more than two years. That is still spectacular growth compared to mature economies such as Canada and the U.S., but it is a concern for China, where growth was 9.7 percent in the third quarter last year. China actually wanted to cool its red hot economy because inflation had become a huge problem. Markets will keenly study every economic report from the Asian giant to determine whether China’s leaders pilot to a soft landing or over steer into a real slowdown. access=subscriber section=markets,none,none

WP LIVESTOCK REPORT HOGS STEADY Strong pork exports are offsetting the negative effect of seasonally increased hog supply. The U.S. dollar is the weakest compared to the Chinese yuan since 1993, making American pork more attractive to China, which is trying to rein in food inflation. Iowa-southern Minnesota cash hogs delivered to plants were about steady at $69.50 US per cwt. Oct. 21, compared to $69 Oct. 14. Cash U.S. pork carcass cut-out value closed at $99.61 Oct. 21, up from $98.71 Oct. 14. The U.S. federal weekly slaughter estimate was 2.32 million, steady with the previous week. The rising loonie is weakening hog prices in Canada.

Pork cut-out value rises in U.S. Hair lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $187-$214 per cwt., 70-85 lb. were $185-$204, 86-105 lb. were $165$183 and 106 lb. and heavier were $155-$173. Hair rams were $70-$80 per cwt. Cull ewes were $70-$80. Good kid goats lighter than 50 lb. were $200-$237.50. Those heavier than 50 lb. were $200-$235 per cwt. Nannies were $75-$95 per cwt. Billies were $100-$141. Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported 1,584 sheep and lambs and 108 goats traded Oct. 17. All classes of lambs, sheep and goats sold steady.

BISON STEADY The Canadian Bison Association said 2010 animals are starting to come to market, which could weaken prices in coming weeks. Grade A bulls in the desirable weight range were $3.85-$4 Cdn per pound 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.

SHEEP REPORT Beaver Hill Auction in Tofield, Alta., reported 1,408 sheep and 134 goats sold Oct. 17. Wool lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $205-$240 per cwt., 70-85 lb. were $186-$226, 86-105 lb. were $175$204 and 106 lb. and heavier were $171-$186. Wool rams were $70-$81 per cwt. Cull ewes were $65-$75 and bred ewes were $160-$190 per head.

Democratic process lacking in handling of CWB changes


e invite great guffaws of laughter in suggesting that changes to the Canadian Wheat Board deserve more debate. After all, and as federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz attests, farmers have been debating the merits and activities of the board for more than 20 years. Yet the haste with which the Conservative government is proceeding in the passage of Bill C-18, An Act to Reorganize the CWB and to Make Consequential and Related Amendments to Certain Acts, generates unease. Legislation that will fundamentally change western Canadian grain marketing surely deserves the full benefit of critical thought offered through the usual process. The government has given itself seven weeks of parliamentary time to enact this legislation, which was introduced Oct. 18. Seven weeks to get a complex bill through all phases including the Senate has rarely, if ever, been seen in the Canadian parliamentary process, with the exception of emergency bills such as back to work legislation. Two of those weeks are already gone and the government has committed itself to an aggressive push that has limited debate and raised accusations about abandonment of democratic process. The Conservatives have been clear in their intentions to eliminate the wheat board monopoly. A majority government now makes the intentions possible. Those who suggest farmers were somehow blindsided by the bill’s introduction have little credibility. To use the metaphor recently favoured by Ritz — that train left the station the day after the election and is barreling down the tracks. Likewise, legal challenges that suggest the current majority government cannot change legislation enacted by a previous government hold no water. Canadians elect new governments precisely so that they can change existing legislation. Given those points, the Conservatives have apparently decided that reasonable debate is moot. If that is the case, it’s something of an

insult to the parliamentary process, which, in a perfect world, thoroughly examines proposed bills and raises issues that might require alteration to better serve the public good. Stephen Vandervalk, president of Grain Growers of Canada, which supports the bill, called last week for “calm in a rising storm of rhetoric.” Though that is another train that has already left the station, it does raise a warning that in heat of battle, supporters of the CWB monopoly may ascribe qualities to the board that it in fact has never had, such as protection of grain quality (managed by the Canadian Grain Commission) and the use of producer cars. Any debate about the CWB has always contained rhetoric aplenty and that will never be truer than in the next five weeks. Given the Conservatives’ full-speedahead plan, it may seem futile to complain about the lack of the usual parliamentary process, but there are other areas where the roughshod approach is unworthy. Two cases in point: the decision to send the bill to a special committee rather than the agriculture committee, to expedite passage; and a plan to displace the current CWB board of directors once the bill is passed and replace them with a slate of appointees. Most of the board members are farmers elected by farmers. They know the workings of the CWB better than anyone and they have expertise and farmer input that it seems foolish to squander. Yes, we can hear the whistle of the oncoming train and the government says that train has no reverse gear. Or brakes. It is already too late to recommend a more reasoned and less hasty approach to changes until the costs are better known and effects are better understood. When the train chugs into the station, its passengers will include a new era in western Canadian grain marketing and a bedraggled parliamentary process.

Iron-fisted Conservatives waste no time pushing through legislation NATIONAL VIEW



ow could the launch of the decisive parliamentary debate on the future of the Canadian Wheat Board have been so tame? True, there was some Conservative cheering and opposition jeering when agriculture minister Gerry Ritz stood, seconded by minister of state for finance Ted Menzies, to table Bill C-18 Oct. 18.

But the next afternoon when debate began as the first step in demolishing the monopoly, there was little emotion on the floor of the House of Commons. For Ritz, who says ending the CWB monopoly led to his entry into federal Reform politics in Saskatchewan in 1993 and then election as an MP in 1997, it sounded like another day at the office. “There were two issues that got me into Parliament way back then,” he said last week. “One was the long gun registry and the other was the wheat board.” But how was he feeling the moment he became the minister to do the deed after all these years? “I’m not saying I’m euphoric or anything like that,” he said hours after debate began. “It is just a good

solid business move for my bottom line and for the other farmers out there.” Can’t you feel the passion? Perhaps it is a Conservative plan to not appear too triumphant, but Prince Albert, Sask., MP Randy Hoback fell off the wagon a bit by telling the Commons it was a great day for farmers. “I am so excited.” In response, opposition MPs were more energized, emotional and rhetorical, but still, the debate at times seemed a bit like listening to a discussion of amendments to clause one, sub-clause two of the Income Tax Act. The debate has been filled with emotion, theatrics, toxic anger and venom since the Palliser Wheat Growers Association first began challenging CWB hegemony and

Saskatchewan Wheat Pool’s support of it in the 1970s. Demonstrations were held on the Prairies last week but none on Parliament Hill, unlike the days of the Crow rate grain subsidy debate in the early 1980s. But in Parliament, despite allegations that Bill C-18 is illegal (from the Liberals) and earlier promises from the New Democratic Party to use “every trick in the book” to delay the bill, there seemed little occasion. Perhaps it is that the arguments have been made, the debate is decades old and there is little new to say. Perhaps it is that both main opposition parties are without permanent leaders and their focus is on leadership (the NDP) or rebuilding

(Liberals). Or maybe NDP critic Pat Martin explained it even as he ridiculed and challenged government defences. “I must admit that there is a feeling of helplessness on this side because the Conservatives have chosen to use their majority to ram this change through to the prairie economic base without even consulting the farmers or allowing them the vote that they are guaranteed through legislation,” he said. Indeed, the majority Conservatives have shown themselves prepared to use an iron parliamentary fist to force it through in almost record time. So barring an unlikely court reversal, the debate is almost over and its end not in doubt. Maybe that’s it. access=subscriber section=opinion,none,none





Marketing freedom start of good ag policy Following is an excerpt from a new book by David Seymour of the Frontier Centre for Public Policy, titled Birth of a Boom: Saskatchewan’s Dawning Golden Age. Author’s note: The federal government’s decision to offer marketing freedom to farmers should be welcomed, as I wrote in my book, which was published months before the decision became certain — though it is only one of many policy reforms that would take Saskatchewan from good to great. The central theme behind ending the CWB monopoly, making water rights tradable and opening up farmland to foreign investment is giving the agricultural sector the power to choose its own destiny.


he region that produces half of the world’s traded durum wheat has to import pasta. It has only one pasta factory of its own. Its most important natural resource is not bought and sold on an open market but allocated by a Soviet style system where the government grants allocations based on perceived need. It is illegal for the country’s national pension plan to invest in farms there because some creditors are not residents of Canada. Saskatchewan’s vaunted agricultural sector is a weird and wacky place, or at least its public policy environment is very odd. It is true that Saskatchewan is one of

Market freedom, tradable water rights and allowing foreign investment in farmland would help develop Saskatchewan’s economy. | FILE PHOTO the most important producers of durum wheat in the world, yet it has no pasta factories, while neighbouring North Dakota has five. Many farmers blame the Canadian Wheat Board’s monopoly on marketing Saskatchewan wheat for this and other sad states of affairs. There are no tradable rights for water, and farmers and manufacturers who wish to use water must apply to the (Saskatchewan) Watershed Authority, which then assesses their need and may grant an allocation. It is also true that the Canada Pension Plan is technically banned from buying farmland in Saskatchewan

because some of its creditors, funnily enough including myself, are foreign nationals. Even Canadian organizations cannot invest in Saskatchewan farmland if they have any foreign owners. These policies are not in the spirit of a golden society. All of them increase the importance of political decision-making and reduce the ability of individuals and local groups to use their knowledge and create wealth. Three reforms in agricultural policy would dramatically improve the outlook for agriculture, the industry that gives the province its wheat sheaf emblem.

The first is an end to single desk marketing of wheat and barley by the Canadian Wheat Board, a policy that is not followed elsewhere in the world or even other parts of Canada, and which improvements in communication technology have made an anachronism anyway. The second is the introduction of tradable water rights. Markets and prices would help answer the question of how best to use water, a resource that will only become more valuable as global demand for food rises. An end to restrictions on the purchase of farmland by foreign interests would increase the amount of capital available for developing this important part of the Saskatchewan economy, particularly as retiring baby boomers look to cash out of the sector. The choice for someone who believes in the golden society should be obvious. Ownership restrictions, government water allocation and the single desk are values opposite to what made free trading, individualvaluing Athens, the Islamic golden age and Enlightenment Scotland inventive and prosperous. All of the examples in this book carry that fundamental distinction at their core. Saskatchewan agriculture will not wither in the absence of these policy reforms. Yet all of them would help to make it more productive, diverse and ultimately more interesting. If Saskatchewan is to extend its golden age into agriculture, then these changes would be a good start. access=subscriber section=opinion,none,none


Where will you sell grain post-marketing board? HURSH ON AG



he new Canadian Wheat Board is going to have a difficult time attracting the business of farmers. Let’s put the passion and vitriol aside for a moment. Barring some surprise in the courts, a voluntary CWB will be in place at the start of the new crop year. Whether you like the government’s direction or you don’t, we will soon be faced with the decision of whether to sell our wheat, durum and barley to one of many private players or whether to do business with the new and voluntary CWB. It won’t be a farmer-run CWB. The farmer-elected directors will be

gone, leaving just five government appointees. This will be a government institution that has up to four years to submit a commercialization (privatization) plan to the government. As soon as the legislation is passed, the private grain trade in competition with the new CWB can begin contracting wheat, durum and barley for delivery after Aug. 1, 2012. To whom are you going to sell? According to the federal government, the voluntary CWB will offer “pooling options to farmers who wish to market in this manner.” Some commentators confuse price pooling and single desk selling. The purported benefit to the single desk is that a single seller should be able to extract a premium from the marketplace. Whether the CWB has truly accomplished that is a matter of hot debate. Price pooling is a result of the marketing system, not part of any tangible advantage. Producers sell into a pool, not knowing what their final price will be. Their delivery opportunities are controlled and they have to

wait a considerable length of time to get all their money. Of course, the CWB has come up with many pricing options to allow farmers to lock in prices and get their money sooner. Hopefully those sorts of options will continue in the new CWB, but the underlying fundamental will still be price pooling. When the act is passed and the farmer elected directors are terminated, expect the organization to be only a shadow of its previous self. Many of the current functions won’t make sense in a competitive environment. And how many people do you employ when you don’t have a clue how much grain you’re going to attract? Will CWB supporters rally behind the new CWB? Farmer control has been lost. The single desk has been lost. And the new entity is the creation of a government dedicated to marketing freedom. Will market choice supporters do business with the new CWB? Theoretically, they should do business with whoever can offer the best price, but in reality the producers who have

fought for market freedom would have to see a big benefit before marketing through a voluntary CWB. The new entity will enjoy government guaranteed borrowing and initial payments, and assuming there is some continuity with the existing CWB, it should have strong marketing connections around the world. The disadvantages include no grain handling facilities, internal turmoil as many employees are lost and all the uncertainty that comes from operating in an entirely different environment. You know how it works when you sell your canola, field peas or lentils to a buyer. That’s how it will work selling your wheat, durum or barley to the private trade. Will a new CWB be able to demonstrate competitive prices and earn your business? It’s doubtful at best. That leads to the next question. How do you commercialize a sinking ship?

There’s still time to think of timely costumes EDITORIAL NOTEBOOK


Will anyone dress up as a single desk?


orry to be mixing my holidays, but I am the Grinch of Halloween. I thought it was fun for about three years when I was dashing around the block collecting bags of candy. Indeed, candy is the only reason for Halloween, in my view. We buy huge boxes of baby Mars bars because they are our favourites, and then eat the leftover ones until Christmas. That being said, I have attended a few Halloween parties in adulthood. From such parties, and the children shrieking at the door, it’s clear that the most popular costumes are related to the top news stories of the year. For example, I think you can count on mini-Moammar Gadhafis trick or treating on Monday, and a Sarah Palin or two may arrive at the more adult shindigs. Some costumes are a little less obvious. Back in about 2003, someone very near and dear to me decided to dress up as a mad cow. He wore little horns stuck to his forehead and a massive rubber glove blown up and strapped to his mid-section. He occasionally wandered around the party room babbling nonsense (mad, you see.) It was udderly ridiculous, but people still remember his costume and tease us about it. BSE was the story of the year back then, agriculturally speaking, so the mad cow outfit chimed with people. To express the obvious, this year’s top story is the removal of the Canadian Wheat Board’s monopoly. One could try to throw on a pair of glasses and mustache, and rent an ostrich for the evening, in an effort to impersonate agriculture minister Gerry Ritz (lore has it he raised the big birds.) It’s unlikely the ostrich would be welcomed in most homes or party rooms, but it would be pretty original. One could fashion a desk — a single desk — with the CWB logo on it, wear it like a sandwich board and pierce it with an arrow or knife. Just be careful how you sit. One could also blow up a copy of the Monopoly board game on a T-shirt, cross out its title and write in Open Market instead. One could have a lot of fun with the little squares, too. It’s probably easier just to wear a sheet or vampire teeth. As for me, I’ll be home with my Mars bars. access=subscriber section=opinion,none,none

hundreds of news releases every week and they get into print. Why should we who pay for a paper have to see letters to the editor as well? I would say most of the letters to the editor and commentaries sent out from government are written by staff. They should not be printed. Mr. Ritz has also made statements that Australian farmers are better off now that they don’t have a wheat board. My wife and I were in Australia and toured and talked to farmers and we have kept in touch over the years and they tell us they are in worse shape with the Australian Wheat Board no longer in existence. The open market gives more profit to the multinational grain companies. Remember, once that grain is in

their pit you don’t know what price they get when they sell it to the end user. David Bailey, Saskatoon, Sask.

NO GLOOM HERE To the Editor: I was quite surprised to drive out to the country on a late September Sunday afternoon, only to discover that most of the crops in this area had been harvested. I would estimate that at least 85 percent of the crops were threshed. When I asked one older farmer how

this was possible when we had experienced such a wet spring, he took off his Roughrider hat, put it back on with the sunshade pointing upwards and said, “the weather was in our favour.” Contrary to what the predictors of gloom and doom were telling us this spring, everything seems to have worked out OK for farmers in southern Saskatchewan. Most of the crop was harvested dry, yields were average to above average, prices are strong and markets look good. Looking at last spring’s scenario, things didn’t look too promising. In the end, thanks to favourable weather, things are now OK. Maybe if we let the climate surrounding the open markets of the world unfold, the cli-

mate that ultimately controls the price of wheat and other crops, things will work out in everyone’s favour. The harvest scene brought to mind the people predicting gloom and doom if the Canadian Wheat Board goes to dual marketing, usually the same people that predict gloom and doom about everything else. Perhaps positive thought is the commodity that is lacking the most in these people’s lives. In ending, I quote French artist Henri Matisse: “There are always flowers for those who want to see them.” John Hamon, Gravelbourg, Sask.

I grew up on an 80 acre farm in central Alberta. I don’t think I knew much about farming until I moved to my husband’s 8,000 acre farm in southeastern Saskatchewan. Since moving here, I’ve learned how to drive a combine and bring in the harvest, and I’ve learned enough about the Canadian Wheat Board to make an informed decision. You can’t compare the plebiscite that just occurred with a federal or provincial election. In a federal election, every vote is equal, and in that sense, the same goes for this plebiscite. However, that means that my father’s vote has the same weight as my husband’s. My husband is a full-time farmer. It’s his business and his life. My dad is an electrician and a farmer on the side who raises cattle and rents out his cropland, entitling him to vote. If this survey wanted accuracy, some weight should have been given to production, not just one permit book, one vote. My husband and I are expecting a baby in January and we’re both very excited to know that this child will grow up in a country where it’s not a crime for his parents to sell their own wheat and barley as of Aug. 1, 2012. Because it’s not about getting rid of the CWB, it’s about having a choice.

STOOPING LOW To the Editor: I see that (federal agriculture minister Gerry) Ritz has really stooped low in the gutter. He hints (WP op-ed Sept. 15) that farmers that support the Canadian Wheat Board are linked to communists. It seems to me that it’s just a few years ago that people under communist rule did not get to vote. Now Mr. Ritz won’t let farmers have a say with a vote on wheat and barley. So, Mr. Ritz, are you for democratic rights for the common person or not? Most papers state on their preamble on the editorial page: “open letters not accepted.” This letter that Mr. Ritz wrote was sent word for word to many newspapers. Does this mean that an MLA or MP has more pull than the citizens of Saskatchewan or even Canada? Mr. Ritz is making statements that are not true and should come into question, or not even put into print…. The governments of the day put out access=subscriber section=opinion,none,none

OPINION WASTE OF ENERGY To the Editor: Re: Sept. 15, WP op-ed by agriculture minister Gerry Ritz. It is such a relief to finally get a clear explanation as to why the Harper government is so fixated on dismantling the Canadian Wheat Board. We should have seen it coming — all the signs are there. The wheat board is a communist plot. Nothing less than scorched earth will do to stamp this menace out. After all, how can you trust people that hire buses to travel long distances to attend meetings? Clearly dangerous people. Next thing you know they will try to market their grain together. Come on Mr. Ritz, your shrill tone and over-the-top rhetoric contributes nothing to the debate, while on the other hand, you call for positive input? …

If the Canadian public doesn’t pay close attention to the tactics of this government on this issue, we are headed for serious trouble. Anti-board people characterize this issue as one of freedom, even human rights. They have never proven their case on economic ground, so this is their trump card. So it’s freedom, you say? When was anyone forced to produce anything for the wheat board? When were machine guns or secret police involved telling you what and when to grow? A load of rubbish. You know when you plant milling wheat, it will sell through the board for export. You have the option to plant all sorts of other crops or not plant at all, or leave this country. This is true complete freedom. By acting as you are, Mr. Ritz, you are taking away my freedom of association with the 62 percent who want a wheat board. If you are really seri-


an Wheat Board, voted in favour of protecting the monopoly, a foregone conclusion. When the math is done right, confirmed by Sidney Green, it is in fact only 34 percent of all farmers. However, whatever percentage you want to use, the difference, be it 38 percent or 66 percent of farmers, currently have their freedom of choice taken away under the powers of the monopoly, by those who have voted in favour of retaining the powers of the CWB monopoly. It is also correct that 39.1 percent, or 24 percent of eligible Canadian voters, voted in the Conservative majority, which protects 100 percent of all Canadians their right to freedom of choice. As Canadians, we all have the right to freedom of choice regardless of the government in power. The current Conservative government is the only party that is going to ensure that

ous about positive change with input from co-op minded people, do the folowing: No. 1. Start by backing off your plan to kill the board. No. 2. Replace all appointed directors with elected farmers. No. 3. Pass legislation to guarantee board access to continued federal government credit. No. 4. Make the board truly at arms length from political interference. Maybe then the board can thrive and this waste of energy will end. Don Voss, Spiritwood, Sask.

FREEDOM OF CHOICE To the Editor: It is correct that 62 percent of eligible farmers, deemed by the Canadi-


equal right to those farmers currently being denied their right to freedom of choice. If the 62 percent own 62 percent of the tonnage now controlled by the CWB, what’s their problem? Get on with the new corporation, as they have the majority ownership of the tonnage. If, however, this is not the case, the CWB does not have the right to take away the others’ right to freedom of choice. The CWB chooses not to disclose certain information under the socalled privacy act screen, but they know who owns what percentages of the tonnage of the wheat that they currently have control over, including the 38 percent that want the right to market their own wheat. There certainly is no comparison of the same being equal. Lorne Neyedly, Lockport, Man.

ave you ever thought about the biblical story of the man who sat by the temple pool in ancient Jerusalem for 38 years but didn’t want to get better? This was a special pool where the water bubbled up from time to time, probably because of a spring that fed it. Many thought the bubbling was the work of angels. They believed this place had mystical healing properties. The sick and lame flocked close around the edge so they could scramble in when the turbulence started. When Jesus visited, his attention was drawn to one particular man who was a pitiful sight. He’d been coming here for 38 years, but hadn’t managed to get into the water. What was wrong? “Do you want to be healed?” Jesus asked. The man bristled with hostility. Everything was the fault of someone else. His grungy sleeping mat and chronic condition had become his crutch. “Come now,” Jesus challenged. “Get up and walk.” And immediately, without thinking, the man got up, picked up his mat and walked. But the healing made him more hostile. If he could walk, more would be expected of him. His complaints and curses were hurled at everyone. His fear held him captive. Jesus offered him the gift of freedom, but he couldn’t accept it. Readers are invited to think of their own fears and to listen to the futility of their own complaints and excuses. Would we be grateful for the healing, or would we be angry because someone dared to take our crutch away? Do we see the opportunities God has given us, or do we cringe with fear? access=subscriber section=opinion,none,none

Trapper teaches producers how to combat coyotes Fences? traps? | Dogs are the best non-lethal coyote control, says expert STORIES BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

MORNINGSIDE, Alta. — Coyotes are opportunistic, intelligent and adaptable to urban and rural areas. The more contact they have with people, the less fear they show. As a result, phones at municipal offices are ringing off the hook with complaints about coyote problems throughout Alberta. “My typical calls are in spring calving or in the early fall,” said Dion Burlock, agriculture fieldman with Lacombe County. The lamb flock is growing in the province, as is the number of complaints about coyotes, he told a producer workshop about predators that have developed a taste for Alberta lamb and beef. More complaints are expected as Alberta’s population spreads into traditional wildlife habitat. “As Alberta grows and our acreages expand and as we bring more people into the rural area that really don’t have a background in farming or living on the land, places like Calgary

have a lot more problems than we did in the past,” said Greg McKinnon, a professional trapper who works with livestock producers. Coyotes are listed as a pest under provincial law, and counties can supply poison to producers who have confirmed kills on their property. However, Ken Wick of Alberta Agriculture said poison should be a last resort. Coyotes are excellent hunters but will also eat whatever is available. Parents teach their young how to scavenge and hunt, which tells McKinnon that they can be trained to stay away from certain areas. As well, the animals’ relentless nature means farmers and ranchers cannot give up from one year to the next. “The adults teach the young what is acceptable and what isn’t,” he said. “You can train coyotes to stay away and you have to use every tool at your disposal, whether it is shooting them, whether it is fences or the dogs. Your main focus is to teach those bad coyotes this is unacceptable.… One bad coyote will cause

you a lot of grief.” Wick said producers also have to take responsibility to protect their investment. He advises cleaning up garbage around the farmyard, removing dead animals and afterbirth from lambing and calving areas and installing and maintaining fences. Guard dogs that live with the flock work well, as do llamas, donkeys or a horse trained to hate dogs. “Dogs are the best non-lethal coyote control,” said Wick. Electric fences may not be enough of a deterrent. “Coyotes are so smart it doesn’t access=subscriber section=news,livestock,none

take them long to figure it out.” Producers need a defendable perimeter around their farms, especially in spring when young animals are born. “Every time you see a coyote inside your perimeter, you have to drive him out,” McKinnon said. They will travel up to eight kilometres from the den, and not all are troublesome. “You should focus on the problem animal, not the species, because you are not going to wipe out coyotes,” he said. Producers might also consider hiring a professional trapper who understands predators and has the best tools to eliminate them in a fast

and humane way. McKinnon would like to see a pilot program launched where trappers and producers work together on predator control. “Trappers study and understand the animal and they use their knowledge of the animal in order to capture it,” he said. McKinnon is a retired RCMP member who has been trapping since he was 10 years old. He teaches a 27 hour course to trappers based on a 400 page manual. He prefers modern foothold traps over snares or poison to avoid killing the wrong animals. He uses a foothold trap that does not mangle or cut off the blood supply. Coyotes usually travel at night,





Lamb producers want compensation Producers hope the new agriculture minister will help find solutions to the predator problem MORNINGSIDE, Alta. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bill Gibson figures the coyote problem in his area is the worst he has experienced in his 35 years in the lamb business. The farmer from Tees, Alta., is frustrated as he tries to match wits with wily coyotes that took 30 lambs and a ewe this year. That is three times his normal loss to predators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They teach each other to kill and they learn that lamb tastes good,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Alberta Lamb Producers director uses the recommended fencing and six guardian dogs and has a rifle on hand, but it was not enough. He eventually hired a professional trapper that cost $9,200 to control the problem. He and his fellow board members have met with provincial government officials and are preparing briefs for the new agriculture minister, Evan Berger, to find solutions to a costly problem. At the very least, they would

like a compensation program similar to what the other provinces provide. Gibson said the problem worsened since BSE. People used to call a rendering company to pick up dead animals but since 2003 they have been charged a fee. As a result, more farmers are reluctant to use the service and instead leave carcasses outside for nature to take its course. Natural disposal is legal in Alberta, but carrion is a common food source for coyotes, said Dion Burlock, agriculture fieldman with Lacombe County. He works with producers to control problem wildlife such as coyotes, deer, gophers, mice and skunks. Coyotes are designated as pests under the provincial agricultural pests act and pest and nuisance control regulation. The difference between a pest and a nuisance is the method in which they are controlled. A pest is eradicated and a nuisance is

which means itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to check traps first thing in the morning. That way animals wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be caught for too long and the trapper can shoot them and salvage their pelts. These traps are easy to set up, but it is harder to trick coyotes into stepping on them. McKinnon digs a small hole and drives two metal stakes into the ground to secure the trap, which is carefully buried with a light covering of soil and grass. The bait is set 25 centimetres behind the trap, which a coyote steps into with its front foot when sniffing the bait. Mid fall is the best time to set traps because young coyotes are still relatively naive. Neck snares are spring loaded, unbreakable wire. It is hard to kill them this way because coyotes have tough neck muscles. Snaring also requires a trapperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permit from the sustainable resource development departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fish and wildlife division. There are 3,000 trappers in the province, who can be contacted through the Alberta Trappers Association.

Historic agricultural bill sets off House debate Steps to end monopoly | Bill C-18 will eliminate the 10 elected director positions and cover most of the transition costs STORIES BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz had the first word as he opened debate Oct. 19 on government legislation that will abolish the 68-year-old Canadian Wheat Board monopoly Aug. 1, 2012. It was low-key. “I welcome this opportunity on behalf of western Canadian farmers to open debate on the bill … that would give them marketing freedom very similar to what farmers have been enjoying in Ontario already for some years,” Ritz said. After questions for Ritz from opposition MPs, Winnipeg New Democrat Pat Martin had the second word. His downtown riding houses the CWB head office and he was less low-key. “The bill is a mistake in the making,”

he said. “We are watching a terrible economic mistake unfold before our very eyes. I must admit there is a feeling of helplessness on this side.” So began what will be a short debate on the historic legislation. After just two opposition MPs spoke, the government said it would cut short debate after two more days, ending it Oct. 24, forcing a vote in a Conservative majority Parliament and sending it to a special parliamentary committee for fast consideration. Ritz has vowed to get it through all parliamentary stages and into law by mid-December. The most unexpected clause in the legislation is the one that eliminates the positions of the 10 elected CWB directors when it takes effect, possibly before the end of the year. Instead, the interim CWB will be run by five

government appointees including president Ian White. Bill C-18, An Act to Re-organize the Canadian Wheat Board, sets out a series of steps that will end the wheat and barley monopoly Aug. 1, 2012, abolish the CWB Act that day, provide financial support for the interim voluntary CWB through federal back-stopping of initial payments and board borrowings and create voluntary research checkoffs at point of sale. Business plan approval required Board directors will have to create a business plan by 2016 or sooner on how the CWB can morph into a voluntary private grain company without government support. Government officials last week did not rule out a business plan that in-

cludes a proposal to sell the board business to an existing domestic or international grain company. The CWB will be dissolved by 2017 if the minister of the day does not approve the plan. Ritz also promised that Ottawa will cover most or all “transition” costs such as penalties for cancelled contracts or employee severance so producer pools are not affected. Government officials and Ritz said Ottawa believes CWB estimates of closedown costs of up to $500 million can be reduced. Although it is not in the legislation, the government also promised that it will spend almost $30 million during the next five years to help the Port of Churchill upgrade and continue to be an agricultural commodity export port during the transition. The government acknowledged

that the northern Manitoba port will be affected because the existing CWB has accounted for up to 90 percent of its traffic. The bill says that the voluntary board will be able to acquire property such as elevator and storage facilities during the transition period, but only if the agriculture minister approves. The board is not being offered guaranteed access to facilities owned by future competitors. The legislation says other than the president, directors appointed by the government will be part time and for a four-year term and a maximum of 12 years. The voluntary board would be able to handle all grain and special crops rather than just the wheat and barley for export and domestic human consumption that is in its current mandate. access=subscriber section=news,none,none


Government has power to amend act, Ritz tells critics Producers and farm groups that support the end of the Canadian Wheat Board monopoly are the “real farmers” in Western Canada, agriculture minister Gerry Ritz said last week. As well, he insisted that attempts by opposition MPs and CWB support groups to delay passage of the bill through parliamentary tactics or court challenges will only create market uncertainty for farmers and hurt the chances that the new voluntary CWB will be able to survive. Ritz made his comments in the House of Commons after tabling legislation and in a later interview. During a heated House of Commons exchange Oct. 19 in which the minister defended Bill C-18 that will end the monopoly Aug. 1, 2012, Edmonton New Democrat Linda Duncan listed farm organizations

It’s just a good solid business move for my bottom line and for other farmers out there. GERRY RITZ FEDERAL AGRICULTURE MINISTER

condemning the Conservatives for ignoring the majority of farmers who supported the single desk in a CWBorganized plebiscite. She mentioned Agricultural Producers of Saskatchewan, Wild Rose Agricultural Producers in Alberta, the Canadian Federation of Agriculture and the National Farmers Union as opponents of the government move. “Who exactly is the government representing?” Duncan said.

Ritz was quick onto his feet. “It is unfortunate (Duncan) has not broadened that scope to the real farmers in Western Canada,” he responded. “The western wheat and barley producers, Grain Growers of Canada and the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association all support this initiative that we are moving forward.” He said provincial governments in Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, which represent more than 85 percent of CWB grain production, also support Ottawa. In a later interview, Ritz said efforts by defenders of the board to delay implementation of the bill beyond the government’s mid-December deadline are only hurting the one they say they love. “The biggest loser would be the new entity itself and they should be

cognizant of the fact that it needs as much time as possible to do contracting in the future and so on. If they are going to give a rejuvenated wheat board a chance at all, they need that kind of framework.” Ritz said in the interview that while he got involved in politics almost two decades ago partly to try to end the CWB monopoly, being the agriculture minister who finally got to table the bill did not make him “euphoric or anything like that. It’s just a good solid business move for my bottom line and for other farmers out there.” He also dismissed claims by Liberals and CWB support groups that the government bill is illegal because it is not following the farmer consultation rules set out in the CWB Act that will be rescinded. “A former government can’t bind a

future government,” said Ritz. Prime minister Stephen Harper has made the same point, and fiery New Democrat MP Pat Martin, who is leading the official opposition fight against Bill C-18 and denouncing it as economic folly and ideological, agreed. “I don’t actually buy the argument that section 47 precludes the current government from amending the act,” he told reporters. “I think the prime minister is right. You would have a constitutional crisis and you would be setting a terrible precedent where every subsequent piece of legislation would have a poison pill that would preclude future governments from ever amending that bill. It’s an impossible scenario.” FOR MORE ON THE CANADIAN WHEAT BOARD, SEE PAGE 81 access=subscriber section=news,none,none

The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association has received $320,000 from the federal government to evaluate new blood tests for bovine tuberculosis. Canada is considered TB free but wants better surveillance tests that are easier and less expensive to run than the current skin tests. Skin tests and post mortem inspection of animals at abattoirs do not always detect disease, said Louis Desautels, an animal health consultant to the CCA. The skin test has been used since 1885 and results take three days. A blood test yields same day results. “It is a bit subjective and if we could get a blood test to replace it, it would be less subjective,” he said. Disease surveillance could be changed and border crossings and abattoir tests could be run more quickly. The three year project is r un through the CCA’s Beef Cattle Research Council. Canada has few positive cases to test the kits, so the United States and Mexico will provide samples from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s serum bank at Ames, Iowa. CFIA scientists will receive the kits for evaluation. If successful, the study will identify one or a combination of tests that are easier and less expensive for regulatory agencies to administer. “You won’t replace the skin test today, but if you can get where the regulators are involved they will have a better idea of how effective these skin tests are,” said Desautels. Tuberculosis is a contagious disease caused by an infection in the lymph nodes that spreads to other organs such as the lungs. It affects practically all mammals and was one of the major diseases of man and domestic animals before control measures were adopted. access=subscriber section=news,livestock,none

Cabinet veteran named Ont. ag minister SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Ted McMeekin has been sworn in as Ontario’s agriculture minister following the Oct. 6 election, in which the Liberals won 53 seats, just one short of a majority.

McMeekin, from the Hamilton area, has previously served as minister of consumer services, minister of government services and as parliamentary assistant to the minister of education and to the minister of training, colleges and universities.

McMeekin first won a seat in the Ontario legislature in a 2000 byelection. He has also sat as mayor of Flamborough, then as a Hamilton city councillor, and holds a master’s of social work degree from Wilfrid Laurier University.

Ontario’s previous ag minister Carol Mitchell lost her seat in the election, as did Leona Dumbrowsky, agriculture minister from 2005-10. McMeekin lives in Waterdown, Ont., with his wife Barbara and three daughters. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

CHAIN L AKES, Alta. — When Gordon Hazard hires new people to work on his Mississippi ranch, he emphasizes a philosophy of low stress livestock handling. “I don’t want a cowboy. I want a cattleman,” he said earlier this fall during a seminar on grazing and cattle management at Chain Lakes in southern Alberta. Nervous cattle defecate, urinate and salivate more. That costs money because they are losing weight. “Every time that calf defecates, it costs you $5.” He uses the concept of low stress handling and understands cattle are prey animals that regard people as predators. They have a flight zone or personal space and if someone gets too close, they move away. Not understanding this can force them to go the wrong way. He trains his cattle within a few days to move to new paddocks and not to fear him so they can be moved into new pastures or loaded more easily into trucks. “The only way to get them to stop is to make them think you are their friend,” he said. Temperament is heritable but some problems could start at weaning with certain animals, said Hazard. His operation practices soft weaning where the calves are slowly removed from their mothers. The cattle are quieter and there is less sickness. In the last 15 years Alberta meat inspector Sandy Stafford has seen the results of low stress handling and improved care of livestock when they come to the abattoir. “Improved handling has come so far as the herd health has,” he said. Inspectors watch how animals are handled at plants and see the damage from bruises and other injuries that could devalue a carcass. The inspectors are also looking for overall condition and disease where they check the head, carcass and organs. “The lymphatic system can reveal the story,” he said. If they find something wrong, they contact the veterinarians on staff. In provincial plants they tend to see fewer abscessed livers compared to a large federal plant where 20 percent of livers may have to be condemned. Heart, kidney and liver problems may be related to what happened to them at the feedyard. “You can almost tell which feedlot they came from,” he said. access=subscriber section=news,livestock,none





Dutch company develops enzyme technology to make ethanol Yeast method already in trials | The enzyme method converts cellulose into sugar, which is then treated using yeast technology AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands (Reuters) — A Dutch life sciences company says the development of second-generation biofuel is nearing a major breakthrough. Commercial production is just a couple of years away and could open up a market worth $5 billion a year, DSM added. Second-generation biofuel is increasingly being seen as a preferred alternative to first-generation fuel, which has been accused of sparking food inflation because it is made from food crops such as corn, sugar cane and rapeseed. DSM is developing yeast and

enzyme products to convert cellulose from waste plant matter into sugar and then ethanol, which is used as a motor fuel. It recently unveiled an enzyme technology that can improve the efficiency of biofuel production from sources such as agricultural waste like wheat and corn stalks. Although the industry is still in its infancy, DSM is confident the market is set to finally open up. “We see refineries being built, particularly in the United States, in the next two years. So by 2014 or the end of 2013 we see a meaningful market with maybe about a dozen second-

generation biorefineries,” said DSM board member Stephan Tanda. Spanish ethanol producer Abengoa started building a second-generation biofuel plant in the U.S. in September, while U.S.-based rival Poet said in July it will open its first commercial-sized cellulosic ethanol plant in 2013. In an April report, the International Energy Agency said biofuel could provide 27 percent of total transport fuel by 2050, playing an important role in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. However, it said improvements were needed in efficiency, cost and overall sustainability. As


U.S. senator’s move to halt subsidy at pump fails WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — A proposal that would have stopped subsidies for new gas station pumps to boost ethanol sales has failed to make it into the Senate’s version of the 2012 agriculture budget. The measure, proposed by senator John McCain as a way to trim federal spending, would have prevented the U.S. Department of Agriculture from offering grants and loans for rural gas stations to install blender pumps. The pumps let consumers blend gasoline with up to 85 percent (E85) ethanol for cars designed to handle the higher levels. However, McCain withdrew his amendment before the Senate could vote on whether to attach it to the agriculture appropriations bill. No reason was provided. The House version of the bill has a similar provision that would prevent the USDA from spending money on blender pumps. Lawmakers from the House and Senate will have to negotiate the issue when they finalize funding for the USDA for 2012. The Senate version of the bill proposes $4.5 million for the USDA program that would fund the pumps, among other rural energy efforts, while the House approved $2.3 million for the energy program, with the proviso money not go for pumps. Funding for blender pumps is important for ethanol makers, who see the lack of ethanol infrastructure as a limiting factor for expanding the market for the corn-based fuel additive. Ethanol makers expect to lose a tax credit worth $6 billion per year at the end of 2011 and have said government subsidies for infrastructure would help make up for that loss. The tax credit has been in place since 1978 and has long been supported by lawmakers from farm states who wanted to help increase demand for corn. However, the subsidies have become controversial as corn prices rose to recent record levels. Ethanol has been blamed for raising prices for food and livestock feed. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

well, substantial further investment in research was needed to make biofuel commercially viable. Tanda said DSM, the world’s largest vitamin maker, aims to tap into a market that will supply yeast and enzymes to second-generation ethanol producers in a sector that could be valued at $3 to $5 billion annually within 10 years. Claiming a major step forward, DSM said their unique technology uses yeast to efficiently ferment two types of sugar into ethanol. “Very few competitors can do that, which means we are talking at least to about two-thirds of the players to

supply the yeast for their bioethanol,” Tanda said. DSM has already conducted trials with Abengoa using its yeast technology but is also developing an enzyme technology that breaks down plant cellulose into sugar, which can then be treated with yeast technology. The enzyme technology competes with that of DuPont, which closed a deal to buy Denmark’s Danisco in May, and Danish rival Novozymes. Still, DSM’s technology is more costly than its rivals and the company is aiming to close the gap before the new cellulosic ethanol plants become operational. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

Sampling vital to ensuring soil fertility Test now | Many fields show signs of nitrogen depletion BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Good crops in the past two years have depleted soil fertility levels, and it’s beginning to show up in early soil samples. Blaine Welsh of the Agro Guys in Galahad, Alta., said only two of the seven soil samples sitting on his desk have more than 10 pounds of available nitrogen in the soil. “The two fairly good crops in a row have sucked most of the nitrogen out of the ground,” said Welsh. “It’s going to take a little nitrogen if guys want to get the same yield next year. Some of them have depleted the buffer that may have been left from the drought years.” Spending a few days crisscrossing fields taking soil samples is one of the simplest and most accurate ways for farmers to determine the level of nutrients in the soil available for next year’s crops. Ross McKenzie of Alberta Agriculture said only 10 to 15 percent of farmers soil test their fields. It’s those soil samples that give farmers a clear picture of how much and what kind of fertilizer they need to apply, said Welsh. “We’ve got people who don’t soil sample and some that do it every year. The guys that don’t soil sample, it’s hard to know what’s happening in their ground. Some are just plain frugal, which makes no sense to me.

At less than a buck an acre, or two pounds of nitrogen, if you can fine tune your nitrogen, that’s the price of a soil sample. The guys who do it every year know what’s going on. BLAINE WELSH AGRO GUYS

At less than a buck an acre, or two pounds of nitrogen, if you can fine tune your nitrogen, that’s the price of a soil sample. The guys who do it every year know what’s going on.” Soil tests cost $50 to $150, depending on how much infor mation farmer’s want back from the laboratory. Welsh said soil tests have given his clients a better understanding of low chloride levels and the low soil pH, which can affect chemical residue. With the soil tests, Welsh knows the addition of potash is a relatively simple fix for low chloride levels. “I’m looking at one sample. It says he

has 11 lb. of nitrogen in his soil and if he wants to grow a 30 bushel canola crop, they’re saying he needs between 90 and 100 lb. of N, and to be flat honest, I know damn well he ain’t putting that on. He’s a 50 lb. of N guy. But maybe that’s why he got 25 bu. of wheat this year and everyone else got more.” Welsh said older farmers tend to follow the same fertilizer prescription that has given them good crops

in the past, and they’re not going to change their fertilizer requirements based on soil test results. “The older generation probably doesn’t have a lot of faith in soil sampling. The younger generation tend to look at stuff a little differently,” said Welsh, one of the many farm input retailers on the Prairies who offer soil sampling services. Alberta Agriculture agrologist Mark

Cutts said the increasing price of fertilizer has encouraged some farmers to soil test this fall. “They want to be sure they’re spending their money properly if prices are going to be high. It’s not uncommon to spend a little money, evaluate the nutrient level of their fields and make their fertility decisions based on that,” said Cutts of the Ag-Info Centre in Stettler.

“Nitrogen certainly is the big driver for guys to go out and get soil samples and figure out where they’re at for fertilizer.” However, he said many farmers put on the same amount of fertilizer each year. “If their target yields are being met by their present fertility applications, then they’re probably happy with what’s going on.” Like Welsh, Cutts expects nitrogen levels will be low after two years of





Alberta soil tester combats clubroot BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

This truck-mounted soil sampler allows for proper soil sampling without having to leave the cab. | MARY MACARTHUR PHOTO

The discovery of clubroot in eastern Alberta has prompted a young entrepreneur to invent a cleaning system for her truck-mounted soil sampler. Sheena McKelvie attached sprayer nozzles to the wheel wells of her truck that spray a 12 percent bleach solution on the tires. She turns on the sprayers by activating a switch in the cab. McKelvie said spraying the bleach solution each time she enters and leaves a field eliminates the spread of clubroot by any soil stuck to her truck tires. Clubroot is mainly spread through soil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to do business in farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fields, you want to show youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing the right thing,â&#x20AC;? said McKelvie, who started her own independent soil testing business, Sheena Soil Sampling, earlier this month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for an agronomist to take the lead.â&#x20AC;? The discovery of clubroot in Vermilion County this fall prompted McKelvie and her farming partner, Mads Merrild, to invent a way for McKelvie to take soil samples with

The bleach solution is contained in a tank on the truck. McKelvie said soil sampling is an important tool for farmers but is difficult to do properly by hand, especially if the ground is hard. The truck-

mounted soil probe allows correct soil samples to be taken without leaving the truck cab. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all controlled from inside the cab and the only time I have to get out of the truck is to dump the stainless steel bucket into the sample bag at the end of each field,â&#x20AC;? she said. Clubroot has the potential to reduce canola yields in half. The confirmation of a field in Vermilion County contaminated with clubroot raised fears among farmers about the spread of the disease by contractors driving through fields. Blasts of air clean the soil probing equipment after each soil sample, which she said eliminates the possibility of contamination through the soil sampling equipment. Stephen Srelkov, a clubroot specialist from the University of Alberta , said bleach is an effective way to kill clubroot pathogen spores, particularly if the spores are present in a fine dust. It be wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be as useful if spores are in big clumps of soil, he added. Srelkov said mounting spray nozzles near the wheels sounded like an â&#x20AC;&#x153;interesting system.â&#x20AC;?




good yields. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if anyone would be sitting on a huge surplus of nitrogen.â&#x20AC;? Dianne Kemppainen, account manager with the soil testing lab ALS Environmental in Saskatoon, said the company has received more soil samples than it did by the same time last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This increase could be the result of sampling conditions that some areas experienced this spring that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

allow samples to be collected at all,â&#x20AC;? said Kemppainen, who was reluctant to give an average of the fertility levels seen in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tests. Soil samples have come into the lab with low levels of nitrogen and sulfur, while others have come in with high levels of nitrogen and sulfur. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The main message weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to get out there is to take a sample and see what they have.â&#x20AC;?






Program weighs rewards and risks Targeting higher yields | Management decisions can be evaluated to determine impact BY WILLIAM DEKAY SASKATOON NEWSROOM

CANDO, Sask. — Jim Cook has become a believer in investing in intensive agronomic strategies. As he combined his wheat Sept. 13, Cook was noticeably pleased with what he was seeing in his field. He didn’t need a weigh wagon to tell him that the crop had a significant yield increase. The Cando farmer averaged 117 bushels of soft white wheat per acre using a system dubbed Ultimate Yield Management. “I’m sold on this Ultimate Yield program. I’ll keep it on this field and I’ll incorporate it on the south field. Eventually it will be throughout all of it,” he said. The “south field” yielded a respectable 80 bu. per acre using the traditional approach. Cook farms 2,000 acres. Ultimate Yield is an agronomic program developed and patented by Dennis Bulani of Biggar, Sask., who also owns a nine bulk fertilizer and

petroleum outlet business. The agronomist farms a section of land near Cook’s, where he researched and developed the agronomic program. Touted as a new approach to crop production management, the program rates seven factors that determine ultimate yield: seed bed preparation, seeding date, seeding depth, seed quality, nutrition, pest control and weather. A rating scale of one to 10 measures the positive or negative impact that each decision has on determining the ultimate yield for a field. By evaluaccess=subscriber section=crops,none,none

Crop production on the south field followed traditional methods while

the north field used the Ultimate Yield program, “just to see if going full-bore on the spraying and the fertilizer was an advantage. It’s proven that it was, big time,” said Cook. Cook’s north field received a final score of 88 percent, compared to the south field’s score of 63 percent. It achieved that with an investment of $118 per acre, including a change in crop rotation a year in advance. Lentils were put into the rotation in 2010 and helped set the stage for Cook’s high yielding wheat crop. Harvesting more than 100 bu. of wheat was not in the plans for the program’s initial growing season. “One of the first things we had to do was look at the fact that he just can’t grow those yields in the first year. Just because you decide you can do it doesn’t mean you can do it,” said Bulani. He said farmers can be overly influenced by current crop prices. Maintaining proper crop rotation is key, he added. “Sometimes growers will grow what is the highest price in the market. In other words, they’re growing

canola when they should actually maybe be putting a pulse in. Just because pulses are lower in price, does that mean it’s the right decision for your farm. It may not be,” he said. Bulani said Cook’s bumper wheat crop is a good example. “The year you grow a pulse on your farm, maybe your revenue is not as high, but long-term your revenue is much higher because it’s an important part of a rotation,” he said. “This exact example proves that. Always going for the top moneymaking crop in terms of economics isn’t always long term going to be the highest return for the farm on a three, four or five year average.” He said investing an extra $118 per acre is not an easy choice and many producers select lower target yields. “The beauty of UYM is it fleshed out the areas and potential solution cost. The producer can then decide if he wants to risk in some or all of the areas. “If you want to target 100 bu. an acre average this year, it will cost you about $118 per acre to get there. If you like the risk, go for it. If you do not, accept a lower target yield.”

It’s not easy being green when choosing how to renovate ENERGY FIELD



enovating is part of the human condition. Whether it was adding branches to the temporary hut, putting more thatch on the roof or enlarging our one-room soddy, we have been renovating ever since we developed shelter. Environmentally conscious construction often focuses on new buildings, but maintaining and renovating an existing building can be more green than new construction. Lots of resources are involved in construction, both material and energy. Demolition and removal to a landfill requires lots of energy, while rebuilding with entirely with new materials adds a greater environmental load to a project. What renovations and new construction have in common is the selection of environmentally friendly materials. For example, air quality is no less important in a renovated building than in a new one. Only painting? Use low VOC paint. Flooring? Consider using long-lasting hardwood, tile or bamboo. Carpets? Use those made from recycled pop bottles. Cabinets? Use those that do not off-gas formaldehyde. If the changes are mostly cosmetic, such as painting, consider a primer paint that acts a vapour retardant. However, if your house is old, the many layers of oil paint may already be doing a good job. Buildings that are made air tighter may need heat recovery ventilation units that exhausts moist air and preheats the incoming replacement air. Many attempts to fill existing wall cavities have been tried over the years, including the ill-fated and banned urea-formaldehyde. Blown cellulose has been used with holes drilled from the inside or outside. However, there is no method of insitu insulating that has proven to effectively fill the cavity. Crossblocking or wiring often causes material to hang up, meaning there are voids in the wall. Adding enough insulation to dramatically reduce your energy bill will likely mean removing the inner wall material or the outer wall material.

If you decide to “go all the way” with the exterior wall, you can add foam insulation sheets and carry the insulation, below-grade quality, right down the basement wall to the footing. If you go with the interior wall, you will have to remove the trim, being careful with dry and brittle material if you plan on re-using it. Then you have another choice: install foam sheets over the existing studs or build another inner stud wall set in from the existing wall and fill in the space with batt or blown cellulose insulations. You may have to add extensions to window and door jambs. Modern living often calls for more open design. However, make sure

walls are not load bearing before removing them. Central walls are likely to be load bearing in older houses. It is still possible to remove most of the wall, but a beam will have to be installed to carry the load. It is best to consult an engineer or competent contractor. Increasing R-value Attic insulation is easy with batts and even easier with blown cellulose, which is available at many retailers. The weak spot in older houses is the edge where the space is so minimal. If you want to improve the level of insulation in that area, one solution is to install a minimum 1.5 inch layer

of foam sheeting polyisocyanurate. It provides the most R-value, R5 per inch, on the whole ceiling. New drywall boarding then goes over that. Such sheet foam also serves as an airvapour barrier. Windows are often the focus of upgrades, but it doesn’t mean that replacement is the only option. Many good windows are trashed, but significant improvements can be made by careful weather stripping. New developments have also been made in low ‘E’ storm windows. Keep in mind the appearance of new windows in the context of older houses. If they are on the agenda, homeowners must decide whether to use box units inside the original

jambs or remove the jambs and go back to the framing. Sealing around window units goes a long way to stopping air leakage. Older buildings are not inherently better. In lots of cases, old construction was inferior to current construction. However, older buildings often have character, including the style of design, materials used and detailed craftsmanship. Renovating can improve livability and energy efficiency but it is always challenging. However, it is also rewarding if you can do it green. Will Oddie is a renewable energy, sustainable building consultant with a lifetime interest in energy conservation. To contact Oddie, send e-mail to



Weigh the pros and cons Inside or out, sometimes a decision becomes obvious. If you have a beautiful, old brick veneer house, you are not likely going to want to remove that brick. It has a large embodied energy, would be extremely costly to replace and holds out the hot days of summer. On the other hand, the decision may be easier and different if it is a 1950s bungalow. Removing the outside wall finish would be less of a loss and much less disruptive. Upgrading the insulation will be a major job, whether it is done inside or outside, and some waste will be produced from the removed material. However, the long-term energy savings swing the balance toward being green. access=subscriber section=crops,none,none

Industrial products get new life on the farm

Pioneer, Monsanto embroiled in patent suit

Company finds new ways to put discarded industrial products to work in feedlots and dairy farms BY JOHN B. PLUCK SASKATOON NEWSROOM

An American company has figured out how to profit from the second R in the reduce-reuse-recyle mantra of environmentalism. Repurposed Materials of Denver, Colorado, markets used products and materials from various industries that producers can convert to multiple uses on the farm. Owner Damon Carson said reusing materials in agriculture is nothing new for most farmers, but he decided to make a business of it when he realized that many used industrial products and by-products that still had value were being discarded. He believes his company is unique because it offers used industrial products and byproducts with which the agricultural industry is not yet familiar. The company uses a website for marketing and has a customer mailing list of nearly 20,000. Carson said one of the products his company sells is used material from advertising billboards, which can be repurposed for the agricultural industry as hay tarps. Another used product is rubber conveyor belts, which can be used as wind breakers or flooring in horse stalls. Carson said feedlots are big buyer of used conveyor belting, which can be used in front of feeding trays to prevent animals from slipping. Old street sweeper brushes are sold as back scratchers for livestock, which he said is particularly popular in the dairy industry. Discarded rubber roofing membrane is sold for use on silage pits. Carson believes the unique feature of this product is its ability to provide a layer of protection against small animals disturbing the formulation process in the pit while also preventing the pit’s lighter covering from lifting. He said reusing makes sense environmentally and economically. Repurposed Materials has been in operation since September 2010.

NEW YORK/KANSAS CIT Y (Reuters) —Pioneer Hi-Bred International has sued Monsanto Co., claiming its archrival infringed on patents that help genetically modified corn seeds germinate. The suit is the latest volley in a bitter fight between the duo for dominance in the lucrative U.S. corn seed industry. In its lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Iowa, Pioneer Hi-Bred claims that it owns patents on a method to enhance the vigour of corn seeds by defoliating the plant at a particular point after pollination but before harvest, and on corn seeds that have

as well as damages. It alleges Monsanto’s infringement is “willful and deliberate,” but does not seek a specific dollar amount in damages. The patents cover technologies that improve corn seed germination. First filed in 1994, they have been used by Monsanto at its research site in Constantine, Michigan, Pioneer claimed. Pioneer also wants its attorney’s fees reimbursed and Monsanto blocked from using the patented methods in the future. Monsanto issued a statement following the lawsuit’s filing, calling it baseless and without merit, and said the approach covered by DuPont’s

patent is not used in any of Monsanto’s production fields. “This filing appears to be another in a series of frivolous claims initiated by DuPont against our business and aimed at distracting us from our mission of investing in and delivering new product offerings to farmers around the world. We will defend our business against this latest attack,” the Monsanto statement said. The two companies are bitter rivals. DuPont has accused Monsanto of illegal, anti-competitive behavior and Monsanto claims DuPont has breached business ethics and violated the terms of licensing agreements. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Reuters) — Cooler temperatures and mild weather continued to loosen the grip of a historic drought in Texas, but more than 90 percent of the southern state still suffered from extreme conditions, according to a U.S. national drought report issued last week. The report stated that 91.87 percent of Texas was considered in extreme or exceptional drought. That was down from 91.96 percent a week earlier. The worst level of drought, exceptional drought, fell to 72.61 percent from 73.13 percent of the state, according to the Drought Monitor, which is compiled by a team of federal and academic scientists. Still, Texas continued to suffer the effects of a year with virtually little to no rainfall. Texas so far has suffered more than $5 billion in agricultural losses, and wildfires have scorched millions of acres during the state’s longest dry period on record. Oklahoma saw an improvement in the level of exceptional drought, which dropped to 59.09 from 59.10 percent of the state. But taking into account the second-worst level of drought, extreme drought, the dryness spread to 87.85 percent of the state from 80.31 percent. Louisiana saw drought areas expand, with more than 40 percent of that state now in extreme or exceptional drought, up from 36 percent a week ago, the report said.

And drought in the key wheatproducing state of Kansas grew worse, expanding to 32.50 percent of the state in extreme or exceptional drought, up from 26 percent a week earlier. FOOD SAFETY

Packer blamed for listeria outbreak (Reuters) — Unsanitary conditions at a packing plant that processed fresh cantaloupes from a Colorado farm likely contributed to one of the deadliest listeria outbreaks in U.S. history, health regulators said last week. The Food and Drug Administration said the design of the plant allowed water to collect in pools and made it difficult to clean and sanitize the facility. The agency also said the plant did not pre-cool cantaloupes before putting them into cold storage. Twenty-fives deaths have been linked to listeria associated with cantaloupes. The FDA said the outbreak, caused by tainted cantaloupes shipped by Jensen Farms, had infected people in 26 states.

eligible for temporary land grants covering as much as 165 acres, up from the current maximum of 33 acres mandated in a 2008 decree, said William Hernandez Morales, the top agricultural official in the eastern province of Santiago de Cuba. “Those persons or lease holders that have really shown they can produce will be able to increase their land to five caballerias,” he said on state-run radio. A caballeria is an old land measure still used in Cuba equivalent to 33 acres. The state owns more than 70 percent of the arable land, of which about 50 percent lies fallow and the remainder produces less than the private sector. President Raul Castro has made increasing food production a top priority since taking over from his brother, Fidel Castro, in 2008, but with poor results. Food production remains below 2005 levels and food prices at farmers markets have increased 7.8 percent this year, according to the government.

New Nodulator® XL delivers up to 8% more yield in peas and lentils. Research shows that Nodulator® XL, powered by its superior rhizobia strain, cranks up pea and lentil yields more than leading inoculants. In 171 station-years* of research, Nodulator® XL increased yields by 3% to 8%!

The revenue jump is even greater in lentils. A 3% yield increase means 0.6 bu./ac. more and $8.39 per acre in additional revenue. How about 1.6 bu./ac. more in yield based on an 8% increase? That’s $22.37 more revenue per acre over leading inoculants.**

In peas, the expected 3% to 8% yield increase produces 1.0 to 2.5 bushels more per acre – that’s between $4.99 and $13.30 more per acre in your pocket.

French fight for aid plan

Japan farms to expand

LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) — France blasted Germany and five other European Union countries last week for their continued opposition to an EU-funded food aid scheme, saying a dismantling of the program would leave millions of Europeans unable to feed themselves. A blocking minority against the scheme held firm at an EU farm ministers’ meeting in Luxembourg on Oct. 20, despite a last-ditch attempt by French farm minister Bruno Le Maire to break the deadlock in talks with his German counterpart in Berlin. “We have made all the gestures, we have incessantly put new proposals for compromise on the table, we have done everything we could to convince our partners ... but we have each time come up against a wall,” Le Maire said after the EU meeting. The European Commission and France have been at the forefront of efforts to convince members to fund an EU-wide food program to help the bloc’s poorest citizens.

TOKYO, Japan (Reuters) — The Japanese government plans to strengthen its farm sector by consolidating typically tiny patches of farmland as prime minister Yoshihiko Noda appears keen to join a trade pact that will likely hit the nation’s small farmers. Joining the United States-led free trade initiative would help Japan’s auto and high-tech exporters compete globally, but would deal a blow to Japan’s well-protected farming sector by opening the door to cheaper overseas farm products. A draft plan submitted to an agricultural panel chaired by Noda proposes that the government pay subsidies to encourage farmers to sell or lease their land so that it can be integrated into larger farms that can withstand foreign competition. The tiny acreage of most of Japan’s rice farmers has made them uncompetitive in terms of cost, but they are protected by a 778 percent tariff that Japan imposes on imported rice.




Dip in California grape yields may sweeten price for growers CALISTOGA, Calif. (Reuters) — Hollywood executive and winery owner Rich Frank says the movie business and wine industry have plenty in common, especially as this year’s late California harvest has winemakers waiting in the wings for grapes to ripen. Both of California’s famed industries require big up-front investments, significant sales and marketing budgets, and are heavily dependent on star power, whether from a smoldering starlet or a complex Cabernet Sauvignon grape. “The difference is that grapes don’t talk back, although sometimes they show up late, as we’re seeing this year,” said the former Walt Disney Studios president and current owner of

Frank Family Vineyards in Napa Valley, which sells wine for $30 a bottle and more. California growers are harvesting grapes later than usual this year. The take is also anticipated to be smaller than nor mal because of heavy spring rain and the second summer in a row of cooler-than-normal temperatures. Production down, quality up The state agriculture department is forecasting 2011 wine grape production of 3.30 million tons, down nine percent from 3.63 million tons in 2010. California’s unusually mild 2011 weather is expected to have intensiaccess=subscriber section=news,none,none

fied flavours in surviving grapes, which should result in higher quality. California’s harvest of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc all have been below long-term average yields per acre, said Steve Fredricks, president of Turrentine Brokerage, which specializes in bulk wine and grape sales. The shortfall may put upward pressure on prices, particularly for wines in the $2 to $4 bottle range, he said. After paying more for grapes, producers of those wines “are going to have less of a desire to sell it at that price,” Fredricks said. Frank said his yields have been mixed. The Chardonnay harvest has been light, but the winery has more Sangiovese than ever before. Despite the smaller harvest, Frank Family Vineyards’ winemaker Todd Graff said he is increasing production 50 percent to 60,000 cases to meet what he sees as rising demand. Graff, who tends three vineyards totalling more than 260 acres around Napa Valley, plans to get there by buying grapes from other growers. “This year we plan to grow (production) a lot, even with the lighter crop,” said Graff, who recently boosted his own Hollywood credentials when he helped the writers of a television show find winery equipment that could be used by the star, a so-called “medical MacGyver,” to save lives.

U.S. must improve aid tracking in Afghanistan Watchdog report | It is difficult to determine if agricultural aid is being invested properly Caution and a head’s-up attitude are important while driving this time of year because many farmers are travelling busy roads getting fall work completed as was recently the case near Mariapolis, Man. | JEANNETTE GREAVES PHOTO

WASHINGTON, D.C. — (Reuters) — The United States’ embassy to Afghanistan needs to do a better job tracking aid to that country’s agriculture ministry, which totalled $77 million last year, says a U.S. watchdog. The audit by the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction said the embassy should do more to evaluate whether U.S. aid is properly used and whether the strategy to invest in the agriculture ministry is working. Sixty-five to 80 percent of Afghans depend on farming for their income, so U.S. agencies have invested in the agriculture ministry to help rebuild the sector after the war, said Steven Trent, acting special inspector general. The watchdog, created by Congress to scrutinize U.S. aid to Afghanistan, has delivered several reports critical of what it has called the “confusing labyrinth” of U.S. spending in the country. The U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Agency for International Development and the Department of Defense all have agriculturerelated programs in the country, the audit said. It urged the embassy do more to co-ordinate efforts. The U.S. has spent more than $1 billion between 2002 and 2010 on agriculture in Afghanistan, the report said. The sector has been hurt by war, drought and a lack of financing and supplies. “The higher profit margins and wages that can be earned from cultivating poppies for illicit opium production can lure many farmers into activities that feed instability, support the insurgency, and undermine the government,” the report said. In a letter included in the report, the embassy said it agreed with the report and was working on the issues. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

NEWS AG NOTES SWINE HEALTH FORUM PLANNED The Canadian Swine Health Board will hold its third Canadian Swine Health Forum Nov. 3-4 in Niagara Falls, Ont.

Topics to be discussed at the forum include the biosecurity standard and implementation, national PRRS control and elimination strategy and board activities. For more information, visit www. ELM PRUNING BAN LIFTED The annual Dutch elm pruning ban is now over for 2011 in Alberta. It is in effect during the time of year when elm bark beetles are potentially most active. Pruning elm trees is prohibited throughout Alberta from April 1 to Sept. 30 to reduce the risk of the disease. Fresh cuts from pruning may attract the beetles that can spread the disease, increasing the chance of an infection. Once they have infected an area, elm bark beetles will feed on healthy elms during the growing season and then breed and overwinter in dead and dying elm trees. Pruning remains an important part of regular elm tree care and is encouraged in Alberta, before and after the annual ban period. Proper pruning helps keep trees healthy and better able to resist disease. The removal of dead and dying elm wood through pruning also helps reduce beetle breeding habitat and control potential beetle populations. Prompt and proper disposal of pruned wood is also essential to keep the disease from spreading. For more information, call the STOPDED hotline at 877-837-3567 or visit

WEBINARS ON SUSTAINABILITY Alberta Agriculture will be offering two free webinars in the coming months that introduce lean and green principles for primary producers, supply chains and producer organizations. They are designed to provide a clear understanding of lean principles and green sustainability and how those principles and processes can be applied in primary agriculture operations. The first webinar, scheduled for Oct. 25 from 1-2 p.m. MDT, introduces lean thinking as a systematic approach to identifying and eliminating waste while focusing on adding value to customers and clients. The session will include examples of how to increase productivity and improve competitive position by adopting lean thinking. The Nov. 3 webinar focuses on becoming a “lean and green” organization or operation. The process expands the focus of traditional lean thinking to include the seven green wastes of energy, water, materials, garbage, transportation, emissions and biodiversity. This process shows how to look at farming operations with a green lens and provides a step-by-step process for how to identify, measure, minimize and eliminate each of the green wastes to realize immediate cost savings with little to no investment and quick implementation.

PRESERVING NATURAL GRASSLANDS A B.C. ranch helps increase awareness of the benefits of range management and involving logging and environmental groups. | Page 74

Cattle stay out of ring at dispersal sale Video technology makes large scale possible | Remington Land and Cattle sells 1,600 cattle over three days BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

DEL BONITA, Alta. — It was a purebred dispersal sale unique in a number of ways, not the least of which was the absence of live cattle in the ring. It might also be one of the largest purebred dispersals ever held in Alberta. Featured cattle were penned behind the sale barn for viewing, but all could be seen by video display as the lots were sold. Remington Land and Cattle, near the U.S. border, held a complete dispersal Oct. 17-19 of its approximately 1,600 purebred and half-cross cattle. Dubbed The Final Drive sale, Angus and Simmental cattle were on offer, along with half-blood crosses of the two. With that number of cattle to sell and only three days in which to do it at the ranch site, video provided the answer. “It was one of the first video sales of that magnitude,” said Gary Rairdan, cattle operations manager for Remington. Video of the animals was provided beforehand to prospective buyers online and on DVD. They could bid on sale days by phone, online or in person. Tim Lockart, owner of the Texasbased video firm Cattle in Motion, said he and his employees spent 15 days in June and September shooting video of the sale animals and another 15 days editing. “We typically get about a minute to two minutes worth of good video and then edit that down to somewhere between 20 and 40 seconds (per animal).” It amounts to more than 50 hours of video, distilled into 25 hours worth of clips shown over the course of the three-day sale. However, the technique speeds the process for large sales like this and

limits the need to disrupt the cattle. “It’s a growing deal,” Lockhart said about video technology for cattle sales. “Especially on a sale that size, it just isn’t feasible to run them all through. We do a lot of this. People use it as pre-marketing. A lot of our clients use it for that, to try to drum up potential business.” The ranch parking lot featured vehicles with licence plates from all over North America, which was reflected in the sales results. “I haven’t figured out how many states we sold to. I think we sold at least one to every province in Canada,” said Rairdan. Residents of Georgia, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska were also among the buyers. Some cattle also sold to Mexico and to Australia, although Rairdan said the latter animals will remain in Canada and be flushed for embryos to be shipped overseas. Sale averages had not been calculated by Oct. 24, but Rairdan said the sale went well and prices were good. Typical of any auction, “s ome brought way more than we thought and others didn’t bring as much as we thought.” The ranch is moving to commercial cattle herds on its two ranches near Del Bonita and near Morse, Sask., in central Saskatchewan. Business manager Jodi Robertson said ranch owner Randy Remington was ready to retire from the purebred business and wanted to simplify operations. The Remington family has been in the cattle business for nearly 50 years.

Open door helps educate on cattle ranching benefits Wildlife, native grasslands preserved | British Columbia ranch works with environmental groups and logging companies to preserve ecosystem BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

CRANBROOK, B.C. — The view from the butte from which Pine Butte Ranch takes its name features distant mountains, forest, rolling hills and grasslands. It is the type of scenery so attractive to those wishing to buy their own little piece of heaven. “We’ve had a lot of pressure from a lot of different people to sell chunks of the property to them, but we thought rather than do that, we

would try and preserve it because it’s one of the few natural grasslands left in the province,” said ranch manager Hugh McLuckie. He is responsible for 1,000 owned acres and another 10,000 in crown lease that make up the ranch owned by Ray Van Steinburg in the area between Cranbrook and Kimberley, B.C. About 160 purebred horned Hereford and 120 commercial cattle graze the property in a managed program that takes into account native grassland preservation, forestry interests access=subscriber section=livestock,none,none

and the wishes of wildlife and environmental groups. The ranch also has a deal with Nature Conservancy Canada to preserve 1,300 acres. That may sound like a lot of cooks in the same grassy kitchen, but McLuckie said it’s manageable. Getting the public to understand the benefits of cattle ranching has taken time, but success is taking hold. “I guess we’re kind of always looking to expand our horizons on what we can do to create a big picture for everybody, sort of like creating (a place) where the general public can walk out there, ride their horse or whatever, and see cattle along with wildlife and everything is good. The grass is in good shape and the wildlife’s happy and nobody’s bothering anything.” McLuckie and Van Steinburg opened the ranch to a September tour by the Pacific Northwest section of the Society for Range Management. Visitors saw the results of efforts to work in co-operation with logging companies and environmental groups. Among them was a 1,600 acre site subjected to a managed burn six years ago to eliminate smaller trees and forest in-growth. The result is deep spring pasture used this year by cattle and elk. “It’s really showing now what fire will do to restore the ecosystem,” said McLuckie. “It’s just amazing what

Pine Butte Ranch manager Hugh McLuckie says the deal with Nature Conservancy Canada will preserve native grassland. | BARB GLEN PHOTO those pastures are doing as far as productivity and grass.” Agrologist Tim Ross said the site now represents a nearly ideal open forest situation, though steady management of forest in-growth will always be necessary. He said open stands of pine seem to aid grass recovery, possibly because the needles keep cattle from grazing too closely. Pine needle abortion in cattle is a concern, but McLuckie reported no problems. Van Steinburg, who bought Pine Butte Ranch in 1952, said his grazing philosophy, though simple, has proven successful. In the early days of the ranch, sparse grass was usually depleted by midsummer, forcing him to take the cattle off the reserve and back to the home place. He advocates understanding the soil, encouraging desirable grazing species and dealing harshly with undesirable plants when they are at a vulnerable stage. “To me, that has been the secret of our whole program,” he said. The desire to preserve this piece of native grassland led him and McLuck-

ie to a deal with the NCC in 2006. “We kind of thought long and hard about it,” McLuckie recalled. “It seems like the St. Mary’s prairie area is sort of the epitome of what people want to move to because of the scenery that we’ve got here.” Only two percent of British Columbia’s grasslands are protected, according to the NCC, so Pine Butte Ranch signed on with 1,300 acres and a 100-year lease to continue ranching operations. With so much of the ranch connected to crown lease, public access can be frequent. But McLuckie said hunters are generally respectful and few problems are seen with horseback and all-terrain vehicle riders. “We kind of look at it as trying to educate the general public, creating a picture where ranching is doing a good service for the people that want to go out there.” The ranch also has responsibilities as a user of crown lease land, he added. “We don’t want the people that are out there to enjoy the scenery or enjoy the wildlife and birds, etc., etc., to think that we’re a problem out there.”

Determine cause of nosebleeds to avoid horse fatality

Infections and diseases must be treated quickly to avoid permanent damage


trickle of blood from a horse’s nostril may not seem that concerning, but it can be the first indication of serious medical problems. The most life-threatening condition is a fungal infection of the carotid artery, which is a major vessel that supplies blood to the brain. A brief anatomy lesson is necessary to understand the severity of this infection. The paired carotid arteries course through an air-filled out-pouching of the eustachian tubes, which connect the mouth to the ears. These guttural pouches are located in the head at the level of the inside of the jaw on each side. In addition to the carotid artery, several other important structures travel through the guttural pouches, including a small bone that suspends the tongue and nerves.

Symptoms and treatment Clinical signs of guttural pouch fungal infection include opaque nasal discharge, nosebleeds and neurologic dysfunction (trouble swallowing or droopy face). Examination of the pouches is necessary for diagnosis and involves passing an endoscope through the nose and into the pouch. This small fibre optic camera can see fungus growing on the vessels within the pouch. Left untreated, sudden fatal bleeding can result if the fungus erodes the vessel wall. Nerve damage and bone infection can also occur. Treatment involves permanently

clamping off the vessel, which presumably stops the supply of nutrients to the fungus, effectively killing it. It also decreases the chance of a fatal bleed. Another cause of nosebleeds in horses occurs after bouts of intense exercise. Some horses experience bleeding from the airways in the lungs, which is called exerciseinduced pulmonary hemorrhage. Racehorses are most commonly affected, but any performance horse can suffer from this disease. Although not fully understood, the cause is suspected to be weakening of the smallest blood vessels from stress. Blood can be seen in the nostrils, but it is frequently swallowed and the only evidence of a problem is poor performance. Endoscope examination after exercise will show blood in the windpipe. The most common treatment is a diuretic, furosemide (Lasix), which is denoted on the racing form when a horse has been administered this drug before racing. In rare cases, blood-filled masses called ethmoid hematomas can grow at the back of the nasal passages. Intermittent nose bleeds from one or both nostrils with abnormal breathing sounds during exercise are the most commonly described clinical signs. Fatal bleeding is less of a concern with this disease. Other common causes of nosebleeds in horses include clotting access=subscriber section=livestock,none,none

The purpose of the guttural pouch is unknown. Speculation is that these air-filled sacs cool the blood entering the brain, especially during exercise, offering it protection from heat injury. Since evolution has selected horses to be flight animals, this adaption to enhance athleticism makes sense. Guttural pouches can also harbour the bacteria responsible for strangles long after clinical signs resolve. These carrier horses are suspected to be a source of infection to unvaccinated or naïve horses. The fungus involved in these guttural pouch infections is most commonly Aspergillis. It normally lives in dirt, but how it causes infection in horses is unknown.








Canada ahead of U.S. in animal care

Canada touted as potential leader in hunger solution

Dairy Farmers of Canada is producing a code of practice handbook to educate farmers and vets BY ALEX BINKLEY FREELANCE WRITER

OTTAWA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Canadian farmers are well ahead of their American counterparts when it comes to animal care programs, says a dairy cattle researcher at the Agriculture Canada Research Centre in Agassiz, B.C. Jeff Rushen told the National Farm Animal Care Council conference that the programs receive lots of international exposure and are comparable to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in Europe. Researchers and farmers are close-

ly linked in Canada, he added, and animal welfare groups are still willing to discuss issues, unlike the antagonistic approach taken by similar groups in the United States. Ho w e v e r, Ru s h e n s a i d m o re research into welfare requirements of farm animals is needed, especially in the diverse beef cattle industry. One of the strengths of the Canadian codes is the review by independent scientists, he added, but more information is required to show how well farmers adhere to the codes. Farmers should also look for ways to

gain financially by following the codes. Ron Maynard, vice-president of Dairy Farmers of Canada and a farmer from Tyne Valley, P.E.I., said dairy farmers volunteered to take the lead in rolling out a code of practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started in 2009 and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re been plugging away at it ever since.â&#x20AC;? The dairy program has produced a 65-page booklet that farmers and their veterinarians can use to review the operation, he said. DFC hopes to have a formal assessment ready by 2013.



â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pulling it together now. Vets like this booklet because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a checklist,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps open up a discussion on why the farmer does what he does and enables the vet to check up on those actions.â&#x20AC;? Maynard said the codes must be credible and farmers have to be educated on how to use them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And they have to prove theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using them.â&#x20AC;? If farmers grumble about the codes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;tell them theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re better of with them than something imposed by government,â&#x20AC;? he said. access=subscriber section=livestock,none,none













University of Guelph president Alastair Summerlee began a speech to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;feeding a hungry worldâ&#x20AC;? conference last week on a sombre note. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the next hour (around the world), 200 people will die of starvation,â&#x20AC;? he said at a conference on animal agriculture sponsored by many Canadian agricultural heavy hitters including Cargill, Maple Leaf Foods and Alberta beef producers. But he quickly went positive. With land and abundant fresh water, Canada can be a major player in meeting world hunger and food needs in the next half century, said Summerlee. And animal protein will be a major part of that effort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be a need to double food production in the next 30 to 50 years,â&#x20AC;? he said. Seventy percent of that increase will come from innovation and technological advances in the agricultural sector. It includes development of more efficient genetically engineered livestock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to think about how we create a diverse agri-food sector and that has to include people who only want to be engaged in organic farming or people who only want to be engaged in using genetically modified products,â&#x20AC;? he said in an interview after his speech. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has to include using technology to improve the efficiency of the livestock sector. It is a conversation we have to have.â&#x20AC;? However, the Ottawa industrysponsored conference was not the place to have it. The Canadian Biotechnology Action Network was told it was not welcome. In a message from organizer Crystal Mackay at the Ontario Farm Animal Council, the anti-GMO lobby group was told it does not â&#x20AC;&#x153;meet the requirements for being an industry stakeholder who supports the Summitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s objectives.â&#x20AC;? Summerlee said he was sorry the group was barred. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it would be useful to have a conversation and to be able to say directly that GMO, including in the livestock sector, has to be part of the solution.â&#x20AC;? Lucy Sharratt, CBAN co-ordinator, agreed on the need for the conversation. She said a University of Guelph application to approve for sale a pig genetically engineered to produce less phosphorous in its manure would be the first GMO animal in the market. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was interested in being there to hear what the industry is thinking about introduction of GM animals,â&#x20AC;? she said in an Oct. 21 interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is our view that it would create a crisis of confidence among consumers about pork at a time when the hog industry doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need more problems. It apparently is not a message the industry wants to hear.â&#x20AC;? She said the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;enviropigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is sold as environmentally friendly â&#x20AC;&#x153;but what they are missing is that GM is considered by most Canadians not an environmental solution but an environmental problem.â&#x20AC;? access=subscriber section=news,none,none





Throne speech targeting hog sector worries KAP NDP to expand moratorium | Pork council hopes the government will listen to farmers when drawing up water rules BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

The recently re-elected Manitoba NDP government gets praise from farm groups for some elements of its throne speech, which commits to getting education tax off of farmland and to improving provincial flood and water management. But most were alarmed to see the government once more name the hog industry as a cause of environmental problems. “They don’t seem to be backing away from that,” said Doug Chorney, president of Keystone Agricultural Producers, about a line in the speech

specifically mentioning “unsustainable hog industry practices.” Manitoba Beef Producers manager Cam Dahl was also worried by the following paragraph, which raised again the worry that farmers in general would get blamed for Lake Winnipeg’s problems. “All of agriculture has raised concerns about that,” said Dahl. The line in the speech that most worried farm groups was: “Our natural heritage is also essential to the quality of life in this province. Our government will follow through on the unanimous vote of this house to protect our water, including expanding the moratori-

NDP fails to address wetland preservation BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

After a spring of record flooding in Manitoba, Ducks Unlimited can’t believe the provincial government is unw illing to protect wetlands throughout the province. The organization was hoping that Manitoba’s NDP government, elected to a fourth consecutive term in early October, would finally recognize the important role that wetlands play in flood mitigation. However, the government made no mention of wetlands in its Oct. 20 throne speech outlining priorities for the 40th session of the Manitoba legislature. “We are disappointed, as will be our 19,000-plus volunteers and supporters,” says Bob Grant, Ducks Unlimited’s manager of provincial operations in Manitoba. “Given all the environmental issues that wetlands address, it is somewhat disturbing that a commitment to protecting wetlands was not a key component of the throne speech.” Nearly three million acres of Manitoba farmland went unseeded this spring because fields were underwater. In addition, dozens of cattle ranchers around Lake Manitoba were forced to move their herds because of record water levels on the lake. The provincial government spent hundreds of millions of dollars on flood mitigation in 2011 and hundreds of millions in compensation to landowners. With flooding and flood compensa-

tion dominating the headlines in Manitoba, Ducks Unlimited used the opportunity to stress the importance of wetland preservation during the provincial election campaign. “It’s really taken this flood to put some political weight behind it. People are starting to connect the dots,” Grant said. “This was a huge flood here and wetland drainage over the years (definitely) contributed to it.” Producers may have resisted the idea of preserving wetlands on farmland a decade ago, he added, but organizations such as Keystone Agricultural Producers and Manitoba Beef Producers are now on side. “KAP and us are talking the same language these days on a lot of things… (such as) incenting landowners to protect wetlands on their property.” Ducks Unlimited would like the Manitoba government to pass legislation that protects wetlands and uses financial incentives to encourage farmers to maintain wetlands. Grant said New Brunswick and Nova Scotia have developed comprehensive policies around wetlands, and Alberta is making progress on its provincial wetlands policy. The Manitoba throne speech did mention water policy. The government said it would “develop a surface-water management strategy to help deal with flooding and reduce the pollution that is killing our lakes.” Manitoba agriculture minister Stan Struthers said wetlands would be part of the conversation. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

um on unsustainable hog industry practices.” Farm groups hoped the following lines were more positive and suggesting co-operation, rather than blame. “We will work with agribusiness to find ways to protect our water and the sector’s future prosperity.” Dahl said he hoped the use of the term “agribusiness” rather than “farmers” didn’t reveal a negative outlook of the government. But he was pleased that the government directly acknowledged the problems still being caused by the floods of 2011 and recent years in the Interlake. “Perhaps there’s hope there for

comprehensive watershed management,” said Dahl. “There’s an acknowledgement that the flood isn’t ove r. We s e e o n g o i n g i m p a c t s throughout Manitoba. I see the speech as acknowledging that fact.” Chorney was pleased that the government reiterated its commitment to getting education taxes off of farmland. “We were really pleased to see that.” And he, like Dahl, was pleased that the government said that water quality protection includes “all people, in all sectors of the province,” rather than just farmers. “We’re encouraged somewhat that they say they’re going to be looking at all stakeholders, not just agriculture,”

said Chorney. “I hope they got the message from agriculture during the election that this is a big concern for us.” Karl Kynoch, chair of Manitoba Pork Council, was disappointed but not surprised by the direct public shot at hog farmers. “It’s nothing different from what they were saying in the election.” But Kynoch said he was hopeful that the premier and agriculture minister would listen to farmers’ concerns when crafting and approving regulations for the Save Lake Winnipeg Act. “The next two months will tell us a lot,” said Kynoch. access=subscriber section=news,none,none

A Saskatchewan equipment manufacturer is embarking on a major job-hiring spree. Brandt Group of Companies plans to fill more than 300 new full-time positions across Western Canada in the next 12 months. “In a time where news of job losses and layoffs seem commonplace, Brandt is bucking the trend, managing to succeed and add hundreds of quality, full-time positions to our team despite challenging economic realities,” said Brandt president Shaun Semple. The company, which is one of the 10 largest private corporations in Saskatchewan, will be filling a wide variety of positions in all five of its divisions, from engineering to administrative jobs. Brandt manufactures agricultural equipment, railway maintenance equipment, customized attachments for heavy-duty construction equipment and custom engineered products for steel mills, food processors and railways. It also operates the largest privately held John Deere dealer in the world, which distributes construction and forestry equipment across Western Canada. The new jobs represent a 21 percent increase in the company’s existing labour force of 1,400 people. Doug Simon, chief personnel officer for Brandt Tractor Ltd., estimates that 100 to 135 positions could be created at the company’s head office in Regina. The other big employer will be the tractor division, which operates 21 equipment dealerships across Western Canada. “There’s a significant number of heavy duty mechanics that we’d be looking for that would be spread throughout Western Canada in each of our locations,” said Simon. “I could probably use about 80 or 100 mechanics right now. That’s pretty significant and it seems to be

picking up each week. It just keeps adding to the total.” The need for new employees in Western Canada’s equipment manufacturing business is not unique to Brandt. Jerry Engel, president of Agricultural Manufacturers of Canada, has spent much of the last two months visiting 30 of his Saskatchewan member companies. “Every one that I visited has labour issues. They need more people,” he said. One of the companies Engel spoke to needs 30 new workers. The problem is finding the skilled labour. “Labour is a huge, huge issue,” he said. Equipment manufacturers are having a tough time finding workers because the booming oil and mining industries are snapping up most of the available candidates. Engel said it’s tough for a small agricultural equipment manufacturer in rural Saskatchewan to compete with the wages and benefits offered by potash mines and the oil patch. There is also a shortage of suitable

accommodation in rural areas such as St. Brieux, Sask., and Frontier, Sask., which have equipment manufacturers. “Even though you need more help, where do you house these people?” he said. Some of his members have sought out technical solutions in the form of robotic welders and laser cutters, but they are pricey alternatives to skilled labour. Others are placing job advertisements in newspapers in Winnipeg and Toronto, but more are going further afield. “It has gotten to the point now where a lot of our members are recruiting from foreign countries,” said Engel. Simon said Brandt has launched a multi-media campaign and a website at to raise public awareness of the company’s growing employment needs. However, the recruitment effort will likely need to be augmented by a broader search. “We are also looking, if necessary, outside the country as well,” Simon said.

Engel said companies have also hired Polynesian workers, including Degelman Industries Ltd. of Regina, which has hired 80 of them. The strategy is to bring over young families who might put down roots in a community rather than single men who would be more willing to pack up after a few months and head to the oil sands in Fort McMurray, Alta. Engel said there are many frustrations associated with the labour shortage, but in some ways it is a good problem to have because it means companies have more orders than the ability to fill them. Simon said Brandt’s announcement is a good news story for the province. “This is certainly a bit of a hot spot in Canada and North America where we are hiring people. We’re not in a down mode or worrying about the instability with the rest of the economy,” he said. “It’s going to be an exciting year and a busy year and now we just have to find some people to fill all these vacant positions.”

Take steps to keep natural disaster from turning into tax disaster MONEY IN YOUR POCKET


Some tax deferral strategies must be done before the end of the year


ost people know that record spring floods hurt Manitoba’s and Saskatchewan’s agricultural economies this year, but the scale of the impact turned out to be enormous. Twenty-five percent of Manitoba’s annual crop production disappeared because three million acres didn’t get planted due to flooding and saturated soil. Cash receipts are expected to drop by at least $1 billion, which causes a $3 billion impact on other related parts of the Manitoba economy. This tax year, Manitoba and Saskatchewan producers may also be caught in a perfect tax storm related to widespread flooding.

Many, if not most, producers defer income into January as part of their regular tax planning. However, in a year like this, where many producers were flooded out, they can end up declaring nearly two years of income in one year without having the corresponding crop input expenses to offset the income. This is how it works. A producer who normally defers will end up with 2010 crop income cheques on his 2011 tax return. He could also end up with income from crop insurance, along with government support and disaster programs income. The expenses for the 2010 income were declared on the 2010 tax return and there may be few inputs in 2011 to expense against the crop insurance and other government assistance. It’s a perfect storm unless the farmer takes early year-end action to offset the problem. I recommend that farmers seek professional tax advice as soon as possible, and certainly before yearend, on how best to reduce their tax obligation due to this situation. Canada Revenue Agency-approved tax strategies are available to reduce your tax liability, but the basic ones for personal year-end tax planning are: • Defer income and capital gains until next year.

• Bring anticipated tax-deductible expenses and capital losses into this tax year. Producers who uses the cash method for reporting income also have other options to reduce their net farm income before year-end: • Prepay for farm inputs such as feed, fertilizer, chemicals and seed. You can do this if you buy the goods under a verbal or written agreement. As well, the quantity and nature of the goods must meet normal requirements, the supplier must be capable of delivering the goods, and the goods must be delivered and used in the normal course of the farm operation. • Increase cash expenses, which can be done by buying inventory as long as it doesn’t create a loss. You need to be careful with this strategy because you could end up creating a large tax liability for yourself when it comes time to sell the farm, phase out the operation or exit the business. Other tax deferral options are also available, which is why producers should seek professional tax advice as soon as possible before time runs out.

Alta. takes grasslands off the market, again Request for proposals cancelled | Ranchers who use some of the land relieved by latest development BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

The Alberta government has halted the potential sale of 16,000 acres of native grassland near Medicine Hat. A brief news release issued Oct. 19 indicated requests for proposals to buy the property for irrigated agricultural development had been cancelled “after people expressed concerns that there was no pubic input access=subscriber section=news,none,none

into using a Request for Proposals and that there might be an impact on water and the ranching community.” Dave Ealey, spokesperson for the provincial sustainable resource development department, said public concerns about water use and availability were key to the decision. “The fact that the Alberta environment department is now the Alberta environment and water department just reinforces these priorities,” he said in an interview. It was the second time that the potential sale of the large land parcel has raised controversy. Dubbed “potatogate” because of interest by potato producer SLM Spud Farms in cultivating the grassland for potato production, the matter created protest from local graziers and environmental groups. The potato farm made a direct offer in 2010 to buy the land, sparking outcry over lack of public input and lack of open bidding on sale of crown property. This August, then-minister of sustainable resources Mel Knight issued a request for proposals for irrigated agricultural development. Any proposals were to be submitted by Oct. 31. SLM Spud Farms was expected to submit a proposal, but that is now moot. James Babe, president of the Forty Mile Grazing Association, which uses a portion of the 16,000 acre property for cattle pasture, expressed relief at the cancellation. He said fighting the potential sale has cost the association time and money. “We’re out a lot of money now. We’ve spent the better part of two and half years having meetings and we hired a consultant so he could tell us originally what our losses would be had this thing gone through in its original form. And no compensation from anyone.” Babe said the non-profit association will probably request compensation from the government for its costs. As well, he hopes it can negotiate a new five-year lease instead of the one-year lease provided by the government after it decided to offer the land for potential sale. “Our fight wasn’t really with the potato guy,” he said. “It was with the government.” Environmental groups protested the potential sale because it would have destroyed native grassland and wildlife habitat, including areas inhabited by the endangered sage grouse. Ealey said the matter has illustrated Albertans’ expectations regarding sale of public land. He also noted the South Saskatchewan Regional Advisory Council, which tabled a report to government earlier this year, included advice that must be considered. “Their advice to government has identified a number of places in the south part of province where there needs to be greater attention given to conservation, and sorting out how that regional planning works is another commitment that the government is pursuing,” Ealey said.





Wheat board reform raises check-off questions Investment dollars and crop research | Producer levies expected to be voluntary, but could include feed barley in future STORIES BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Western Canadian farmers will soon see changes to the way wheat and barley checkoffs are collected. What’s not yet clear is how those changes will be implemented or what the new levy system will look like. Garth Patterson, executive director of the Western Grains Research Foundation, said his organization will be involved in discussions with the federal government over the next few months to determine how wheat and barley checkoffs will be collected once single desk grain marketing is eliminated. It is expected that producer levies will continue to be voluntary, giving producers the opportunity to request a refund of any money withheld. It is also likely that levy collection will take place at the point of sale. “I think it will be something that everyone is comfortable with and familiar with,” Patterson said. An important component in the proposed legislation to end the Canadian Wheat Board’s single desk

is a provision allowing for the collection of a producer checkoff on all sales of wheat and barley, including feed grade crops. As a single-desk grain buyer, the CWB has traditionally collected producer checkoffs on board grains, including wheat and malting barley, but not on feed barley. Patterson stopped short of saying a new checkoff on feed barley would be introduced, but he acknowledged that the opportunity to introduce such a levy exists within the proposed legislation. “We will likely see an increase in scope,” he said. “I can’t get into details yet until we have those discussions (with Ottawa), but it appears the legislation allows for the collection of the checkoff on all sales of wheat and barley so … that means, to us, more than just wheat board sales.” Voluntary producer checkoffs are a critical source of funding for research and development initiatives. The wheat board has previously acted as the primary collection agent, deducting levies from farmers’ access=subscriber section=news,none,none


CWB chair sees little value in voluntary organization There is no guarantee prairie farmers will benefit from Ottawa’s plan to establish a voluntary Canadian Wheat Board, says its chair. Speaking to reporters last week, Allen Oberg questioned the merits of a voluntary board, saying there is no assurance that profits derived from grain sales would be retained by the voluntary board or returned to farmers. Oberg acknowledged that government concessions contained in Bill C-18, including guarantees from Ottawa to cover initial prices and provide credit and preferential terms of borrowing, would improve a voluntary board’s chances of surviving in an open market. However, he stressed that the voluntary board would be run by government-appointed directors rather than farmer-elected directors, and he questioned whether profits would be siphoned off by government or returned to growers. “The concessions that government has made will increase its (the voluntary board’s) chances of survival, but I think what’s important here is the loss of value to farmers,” Oberg said. “We’re moving from an organization where all the profits, all the premiums that are gained, go directly back to farmers, (and we’re moving) to an organization that’s essentially owned by government ….” News of the voluntary board has spawned mixed reactions from the grain industry. Terry Boehm, president of the National Farmers Union, said his organization called the voluntary board a “shadow entity” that has no merit. Boehm said it is unlikely that a voluntary board would continue to operate as a viable commercial entity, given that it has no grain handling access=subscriber section=news,none,none

infrastructure and would depend on its competitors to move its grain. “The legislation does mention government guarantees for the initial prices, but at the same time, it doesn’t give the new entity any (assurance of) … access to grain handling or terminal facilities so it becomes completely dependent on what would be it’s direct competitors,” said Boehm. Richard Phillips, executive director of Grain Growers of Canada, said his organization is pleased with provisions for establishing a voluntary board. He said the GGC views voluntary pooling as an important marketing tool that can allow farmers to reduce risks by pooling a portion of their crop. Phillips said continuation of government guarantees will enhance the new board’s competitive position. “We were very pleased to see a fiveyear guarantee for their initials and their borrowing,” Phillips said. “If that had not been there, there would probably be no point in even talking about a voluntary wheat board because without access to capital, it simply could not have survived.” Phillips said the new entity, with government guarantees, stands a good chance of surviving beyond 2017 if producers continue to support the concepts of pooling and cooperative ownership. He said commercialization of the new entity in 2017 could involve some form of farmer ownership, be that a co-operative structure or other type of farmer controlled equity, to ensure that CWB assets are transferred to producers. Appointing new directors with relevant experience in the grain handling and financial industries will be critical to the new entity’s survival, he said.

final payments on wheat and malting barley. Those funds are forwarded to the WGRF, whose board manages checkoff money and decides which research initiatives should receive producer support. Some barley industry researchers say the lack of producer checkoffs for feed barley has resulted in chronic underfunding for feed barley research. They say the vast majority of barley research and barley breeding initiatives are targeted at the malting barley industry rather than the feeding industry. As a result, yield and agronomic improvements that could be bred into new barley varieties are sometimes overlooked if the cultivar does not have good brewing characteristics. The CWB currently collects checkoffs for wheat in all four western provinces, while malting barley checkoffs are collected by the board in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. In Alberta, the Alberta Barley Commission collects its own barley checkoffs on malting and feed barley varieties. In 2010, the WGRF received $6.4 million through producer checkoffs, including $5.4 from CWB wheat sales and $1 million from CWB malting barley sales.


Levy rates are set at 30 cents per tonne for wheat and 50 cents a tonne for malting barley. Patterson said the WGRF has remained neutral in the debate over whether Western Canada should retain a single desk marketing system or move to an open market structure. However, he said the foundation was pleased that proposed legislation recognizes the importance of investment in research and development. “We’re very pleased with what we’ve seen in the proposed legislation because it does allow for the continuation of a checkoff for wheat and barley research for a five–year period,” he said. “At the end of that five years, we expect to be part of a new model, whether that be a national council or (some other organization)…. The intent is to look at some kind of new … model for the wheat and barley industry and we look forward to being a part of that.” Brian Otto, a farmer from Warner,

Alta., and president of the Western Barley Growers Association, said his organization would like to see a new research and development organization that has a national mandate and representation from all sectors of the barley industry. In a recent submission to the federal working group on marketing freedom, the barley association floated the idea of establishing a national barley council that is supported by provincial commissions and producer checkoffs across the country. “The model that we want in place is a model that will work for the whole industry,” Otto said. “Ideally, the organization … put in place would involve the whole value chain in the barley industry to decide on market development and research initiatives in breeding and agronomics. We would be looking for an organization that has input from every sector of the barley industry, from producers right through to end users and processors.” Proposed amendments to CWB legislation also contain provisions for continued funding to the Canadian International for Grains Institute and the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre. They are market development agencies that promote the sale and use of Canadian grain at home and abroad.

Tap strengths to revitalize community Rural challenges | Developing partnerships and co-ordinating resources help create a vision for the future STORIES BY NANCY RALPH FREELANCE WRITER

ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — If you live in a small community that has seen its share of change in recent decades and is wondering about its future, don’t fret, plan. Finding ways to invigorate communities and make them prosper was explored at a regional development conference in St. John’s, N.L., Oct. 13-16.


Embracing local culture, collaborating with neighbours and policymakers and having a plan for the future were among recommended ways regions can cope with change and look forward. “Rural communities across the country have many common issues, such as migration, declining population or an aging population. These factors present a lot of challenges for rural people, who often love their community, but who realize there is a need for a new vision for the community,” said Robert Annis, incoming president of the Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation, one of the conference organizers. CCRF provides a link between residents, academics, and government representatives on issues and policies. Annis, a retired director of the Rural

Development Institute of Brandon University in Manitoba, said it can be a struggle to create a vision for a community and see how to get there. Most speakers agreed that developing partnerships is key. Canadians can also learn from how other countries have coped with similar issues. Brendan O’Keeffe, an associate professor at the University of Limerick in Ireland and a conference keynote speaker, said there were many common features and desires in rural communities. “I think we begin by looking at our strengths and what we have in common,” he said. The conference allowed delegates to create networks, share experiences and strategies and exchange their know-how and skills. “There’s no major, magic solution.

It’s all the small components, and learning from each other … strategies and approaches that are appropriate,” said O’Keeffe. Understanding how to use existing strengths was another theme. Brian Arnott, who founded a cultural consulting firm called Novita, said many small Canadian communities that were once resource based are dealing with a vastly dif-

ferent economic base. “It’s a question about understanding what the issues are and understanding how to plan at the community level. It’s all about co-ordinating,” he said. Speakers encouraged delegates to let their community groups know it’s important for them to work together to create new identities for their communities.


Capitalizing on regional culture pays dividends in rural Canada Looking for ways to revitalize towns | Food festivals, tapestries and cookbooks help promote region’s identity and uniqueness ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — Innovative initiatives abound for rural communities struggling to find a new direction. During a regional development conference in St. John’s, N.L., delegates heard that many communities around the world are branding themselves by showing how they’re different and how they can offer a unique experience for residents and tourists. Candace Cochrane, director of culture and heritage for the Quebec-Labrador Foundation, offered her advice to planners and community workers. “It’s very important to get the community involved right off the bat,” she said.


In British Columbia’s Kootenay region, planners capitalize on the natural beauty. They promote how investors, who can work from anywhere via their computers, can live there and enjoy numerous outdoor activities such as skiing. Communities first have to ensure

that the proper technology is in place to make this plan work. One Icelandic sheep producer detailed how unreliable internet service keeps youth from returning to her rural area to work and live. Myriam Dalstein used a film and knitting club to promote her business and adopted home. She owns a guesthouse in rural Iceland where she celebrates “yarns and farms.” She formed a knitting club with her neighbours who sell their sweaters, mittens and hats, which gives her guests a taste of rural Icelandic handicrafts and cuisine. Dalstein uses a remodelled stable and barn on her property to hold

various cultural events, including a popular Christmas mart. Through the Labrador Straits Development Corporation in Eastern Canada, oral histories were collected and compiled onto a CD, along with songs from the community. In addition, residents compiled heritage recipes for The Pure Labrador Cookbook, a publication now in its third printing. In Conche, N.L., local women embroidered a 66 metre tapestry depicting the history of French settlers in the area. A textile arts centre has since been created to showcase more handmade textile crafts from residents.

Robert Annis of the Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation said cultural diversity is invigorating many smaller communities as immigrants from around the globe move into rural Canada. In Gravelbourg, Sask., an international food festival showcases the native food of people from the various cultures living there. Sometimes, people just want that feeling of home. Rannveig Thorhallsdottir of Iceland told how the mayor of a community where she bought a summer home knocked on her door to welcome her. She has since built a company that employs many of her neighbours.

Parenting combines discipline with play SPEAKING OF LIFE

ORIENTAL CABBAGE SALAD JACKLIN ANDREWS, BA, MSW 3 to 4 cups finely shredded cabbage 1 cup shredded carrots 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery 1 small red onion, thinly sliced 1/2 cup Oriental style noodles, toasted OR chow mein noodles


I really enjoy being with my wife and two small sons. One of my goals is to be a good dad and to be a better parent than my father was with me. But sometimes I am not sure of myself and I wonder what it is that I could be doing that will help me be a better dad. What do you think?

In a large salad bowl, toss together the vegetables. Break noodles into bite-size pieces and stir in. Add desired amount of dressing and toss. Garnish with sunflower seeds.


The fact that you enjoy being with your wife and boys tells me that you are already on your way to becoming a good father. But no one can be the perfect parent at all times. Parents often berate themselves because they had a moment of impatience, didn’t listen to their children’s concerns or did not know or understand what was going on with the kids. It opens the door for their children to make mistakes, but to be human also. Neither children nor parents should have to over achieve or do something special to be loved. All of us should be loved for being who we are. If you want to become a good dad, roll up your sleeves and play with your boys. Play is more than just play for children. Kids learn from play and you can have tremendous input into what they are learning. You and your boys can indulge in imaginary play. In later life, that same creativity will help them problem solve when life’s challenges present themselves. Play is one of the few places in life where children can practise their social skills. They learn about what feelings they and other people have that can help them understand and get along with others or what gets in the way of good social relationships. Playtime is there for your boys to develop some sense of emotional self-regulation. All of us have to deal with our emotions, at times controlling either excitement or anger that could otherwise get us into trouble. The more your boys can learn how to properly express their feelings and control outbursts that could potentially hurt themselves or others while opening their hearts to the affection and caring offered, the more likely it is that they will have successful relationships when they mature. I encourage you to forgive your own dad for whatever shortcomings he had. It will allow you to feel better about yourself and what a good lesson in forgiveness it could teach your two young boys.

Cookbook reflects passion for food Made from scratch meals | Food preparation part of growing up on Hutterite colony BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

By Canadian book standards, Judy Walter has written a bestseller. The Lethbridge, Alta., area farm woman has sold more than 6,000 copies of At Home in the Kitchen: Mennonite, Hutterite & Amish-Style Cooking, and has done a second printing of the self-published cookbook. In her tidy kitchen on a former Hutterite colony south of the city, a hedge sits between her glass doors and the fields beyond. “I’m a farmer at heart,” said Walter with a smile. Food and its preparation were a major part of her formative years growing up on a Hutterite colony. She grew to love cooking and baking, but that wasn’t on her mind when she followed her mother around the big communal kitchen. “I didn’t start out loving cooking because cooking for that many people kind of intimidated me,” said Walter. But with food so much a part of life and work, she developed the skills she used in later life in raising her two daughters. “When my girls left home and they

wanted to have all of our favourite recipes under one cover, I started putting them together. I thought, well, you know what, why don’t I try making this a profitable venture because it’s a lot of work.” Health issues and caring for aged relatives interfered with her cookbook project for a time, but eventua l l y t h e 3 0 8 -p a g e t o m e c a m e together. The result is a compilation of recipes Walter has developed and bor-

rowed over 40 years. Eleven chapters deal with appetizers, yeast breads, sweet breads and brunches, soups and sandwiches, salads, main dishes, vegetables and side dishes, pies and pastry, cakes, desserts and cookies. The recipes concentrate on food made from scratch that can be managed by novice and experienced cooks, she said. The difference between Hutterite, Mennonite and Amish cooking is minimal, she adds. It’s all “comfort food,” but basic ingredients and preparation are the common elements. Walter said many people assume this type of cooking is high in calories, but quality ingredients and portion control can keep the pounds off. “People say to me, ‘Judy, how come you’re not this big?’” said Walter, with her arms spread wide. “I love meat, potatoes and gravy, I absolutely love it. But if you eat just a small portion …. I have this wonderful metabolism, so I eat very moderately and I love salads.” She used her brother’s work crew as food tasters when selecting recipes for the book. Then it was a matter of compilation and editing, which was

no easy task. A spelling error somewhere inside, substituting “four” for “flour” still rankles. “I found it a little bit stressful because I’m a perfectionist. I wanted it to be perfect. It’s not perfect, but it’s as perfect as I can make it.” Many Amish and Mennonite cookbooks don’t have photographs, but Walter was insistent on their inclusion. But making the food for the photo shoot was a chore in itself. A planned shoot at the Prince of Wales Hotel in Waterton National Park was scrapped due to howling winds, so she and photographer David Tanaka went to the park’s Cameron Lake instead, hauling food through the parking lot and out to lake’s edge for the shot. Walters now lives alone so her skills in cooking for large groups only get used when she visits her daughters and seven grandchildren in the United States. As well, she brings food to her brother’s seeding and harvest crews each year. Walter doesn’t know if she’ll undertake another book but her love of cooking will remain. She shares that love through a website and a blog at judy-athomeinthekitchen.blogspot. com.





Bringing food production closer to urban residents Sustainable development | Cities seen as food deserts BY CAROLYN BLACK FREELANCE WRITER

A big disconnect between city dwellers and agricultural producers could be resolved with urban agriculture, said a member of the Toronto Food Policy Council. June Komisar, an architect and professor in architectural science, explores how municipalities can find new ways for residents to create fresh, local food in the book, Carrot City: Creating Places for Urban Agriculture, co-written by Ryerson University professors Komisar, Joe Nsar and Mark Gorgolewski. “I think the lack of necessity to grow food was brought on by things like better refrigeration and better transportation. These allowed large processors to bring things in from far away and people could buy things less frequently because it would stay fresh longer,” said Komisar. She expressed concern about “food deserts” in large cities, where there are no grocery stores within walking distance. Residents can’t access fresh food and must use transportation or buy less nutritious choices from convenience stores. “Farmers’ markets and urban agriculture all around these highrise towers are seen as one possible way to mitigate some of the problems with food deserts. It doesn’t solve all the problems, but it starts to provide fresh food to people who are really far away from accessing it,” she said. Urban agriculture can transform the landscape and architecture of a city and create places for food production to take place by tucking greenhouses under highway overpasses, creating front yard vegetable gardens to maximize space and building sustainable rooftop gardens on schools and apartment buildings. “Instead of thinking of urban and agriculture as either-or, we should be thinking about it as both-and. It’s not like we can have only farmland or only housing,” Komisar said. This innovative thinking is showcased in both the book and a related travelling exhibit that presents new ideas on how to better connect cities with their food sources. “Everyone seems to be incredibly delighted with the exhibition. Our receptions are completely overflowing with people,” she said. Vancouver wants to bring it there, but funding is required to bring chicken coops, greenhouses and home composters as examples of urban agriculture. “The exhibit is hands on and we like it that way,” Komisar said. Bylaws in Saskatoon currently prohibit chickens within city limits, but British Columbia communities like Burnaby and Victoria allow backyard flocks, with some restrictions. Recently, officials passed beekeeping legislation that allowed rooftop beehives in New York City, and since then, a lucrative new industry of local honey has sprung up. Komisar said urban agriculture advocates are concerned about farmers with prime land near large cities being bought out by developers. “Their farmland is being lost, but access=subscriber section=news,none,none section=news,farmliving,none

there are some urban planners who are trying to look at having both suburban development and farmland together. For farmers who are very close to the city, it might be a very compelling idea for them. They’re sort of combining farmland and suburban development.” Prairie Crossing, a farming subdivision north of Chicago, was designed to combine land preservation, easy commuting by rail and sustainable development practices.

Husband-wife team shares the load Striking a balance | Building fertilizer carts adds income to grain operation BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Cathy and Wade Mowat and their daughter, Amy, take a break at their farmhouse on Oct. 21 at New Norway, Alta. | MARY MACARTHUR PHOTO

NEW NORWAY, Alta. — The birth of Cathy and Wade Mowat’s second child gave the young couple the pause needed to re-evaluate their farming life. Knowing that rural child care would be an issue, Cathy gave up a 16-year career as a travel agent and joined Wade full time on the farm where she learned to drive equipment and became a partner in the farming operation. “I was always passionate about my job. Now that I’m on the farm, I love

it,” said Cathy. Last year, Wade taught Cathy how to operate the sprayer. In the fall, she learned to drive the combine. This year, she did the pre-seed spraying, seeding, swathing and combining, leaving Wade to do the spraying, trucking and organizing “It’s been pretty cool this year,” she said. Wade still does the in-crop spraying as well as roughly 7,000 acres of custom spraying. At the same time the decision was made for Cathy to stay home, Wade and his brother and nephew split the farming operation, creating more access=subscriber section=farmliving,none,none

changes for the couple. “Before, I had the passive role taking meals to the field during harvest,” said Cathy. With Cathy now in the field, they once again had to re-evaluate their previous jobs, including harvest meals and child care. The couple hired Cathy’s mom to look after the children, Wyatt, 7, in Grade 2 and Amy, 2, during harvest. “It would have been impossible without my mom,” she said. Before getting on the combine, Cathy packs a day’s worth of food and drinks into each operator’s cooler so no one had to worry about meals in the field. “It works for us,” she said. Now that harvest is finished, Wade is able to focus on his new project of building liquid fertilizer carts. The heavy-duty mechanic built his first cart as a way of saving money and getting the right size cart for the farm. Using secondhand wheels and axles, Wade built the 48,000 gallon liquid fertilizer cart for $15,000 instead of the $42,000 new price. The project was so successful, Wade is almost finished building a second cart for another local farmer and is discussing making more with a group of farm supply dealers. With many Alberta farmers using liquid fertilizer and few manufacturers making carts, Wade believes there may be a niche market. “Here’s an opportunity where a guy can make the carts and service the market in Alberta,” said Wade, who grew up on a nearby mixed cattle and grain farm. He bought his first land with a feedlot in his final year of high school. The two carts were built in his father’s farm shop north of his home farm, but if the demand is high, there may be a chance of of setting up a larger shop on the farm. “I don’t want to get too excited about spending a lot of capital.” Wade already spends time in the farm shop building, packaging and delivering controls for natural gas compressor engines he helped design. After working on offshore oil platforms in Qatar and Louisiana, Wade was hired by Calgary’s Spartan Controls to help design the air fuel controls for retrofitting older natural gas compressor engines. Wade’s name is one of the names on the patent. “It’s actually a really good little business,” he said. “I really enjoy working in the shop.” Cathy said his hobby is tinkering and figuring out new projects, not watching television. “The cart thing came from his own desire that he wanted something that worked for the farm,” she said. With Wade now home in the winter, Wade took up hockey and curling for recreation last winter. “For me, the hockey was great exercise. At the end of the season, I felt great.” At the same time, Cathy joined the Rez City Rollers roller derby team to complement her running. When Cathy turned 40, she joined some friends and ran a 10-kilometre race in San Francisco. Since then, she’s run a half marathon in New Orleans and will fly to Dubai in December to run another half marathon.
