Census details farm picture Statistics Canada | Glimpse into ag sector offers some surprises BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

In its first report on the 2011 census of agriculture, Statistics Canada says Canadian agriculture is continuing to consolidate and adapt to changing conditions. Based on returns from 97 percent of surveyed farmers last year, the federal agency says the number of “census” farmers fell 10 percent to 205,000 in the five years between 2006 and 2011 and average farm size increased by seven percent to 778 acres. A census farm is any operation that grew an agricultural product with the intention to sell it, a definition that many in the industry say distorts the findings. At the same time, the greying of the farm population continued.

Grain and oilseed operations dramatically increased both acreage and revenue while livestock producers saw their share of the industry shrink and their gross revenues fall far behind the crop side. Farms with gross revenues over

$500,000 increased their share of industry receipts to almost 68 percent and farms with gross income of more than $1 million accounted for almost half of all farm receipts. SEE CENSUS DETAILS, PAGE 2

Analysis raises alarm bells over Agrium’s nitrogen buy BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

An independent analysis of Glencore’s proposed acquisition of Viterra has raised many of the same concerns about the deal voiced by farmers.

Glencore intends to sell 232 agriretail outlets to Agrium once its purchase of Viterra is approved. Some farm organizations and individual farmers have said they worry about what might happen when a company that manufactures fertilizer becomes the largest retailer.

Informa Economics, hired by the Saskatchewan government to help it weigh the net benefit of the deal to the province, said it is concerned about Agrium’s ability to put pressure on nitrogen prices, although there is no evidence to suggest that will happen. Agriculture minister Bob Bjorner-

ud, who released the report May 11, said farmers have the same worries. “Any time there’s a possibility of losing a little bit of the competition that we already have I know they are concerned,” he told reporters. SEE ANALYSIS RAISES ALARM BELLS, PAGE 2.

Census details ag picture “ This is not really surprising because the consolidation of farms into larger units has been a longterm trend,” said George Morris Centre senior researcher Al Mussell. “And the boom in grains and oilseeds compared to livestock is simply a question of that is where the good prices have been.” Like other farm sector analysts and many farm leaders, Mussell said the Statistics Canada numbers are distorted because they count tens of thousands of “farmers” who have no intention or chance of making a living from the farm. In fact, the 37 percent of census farmers with gross revenues of less than $25,000 annually contribute just 1.4 percent of gross farm revenues — $721 million out of $51 billion. Some of those are beginning farmers starting small or market garden-

ers with small acreages and low costs, but most are what industry analysts consider lifestyle or hobby farmers. Still, some of those small farmers could be making a living and Statistics Canada figures show that smaller operations are as likely to cover their costs from revenues as are larger operations. “There certainly are successful niche operators so I would say it is not necessarily that big is better,” Gwen Paddock, national agriculture manager with the Royal Bank, said in an interview. “Better is better and that can be any size.” Still, Mussell said the trend to an industry dominated by large farmers has serious implications.

Analysis raises alarm bells “I’ve had that brought to my attention a number of times in the last couple of weeks.” The number of retail outlets overall won’t change. “What will change in a material way is the degree of vertical integration in the crop nutrients sector if Agrium adds the largest retail input sales network to its existing production facilities and the minority interest it is acquiring in Canadian Fertilizer Ltd.,” said the report. Viterra’s share of Saskatchewan retail facilities was 37 percent. After the deal, Agrium would have 42 percent. At the wholesale level, Agrium would own 53 percent of Canadian ammonia capacity and 49 percent of urea production capacity. The federal Competition Bureau does more detailed investigations when a single company has a market share of greater than 35 percent. The report said the bureau’s prime consideration in assessing the deal should be the impact on price and output. “It is a firm’s ability to raise prices, not the likelihood that prices will be raised, that is of concern,” said the report. Informa found no negative impact

to competition from Glencore’s plan to sell 19 elevators and port facilities to Richardson. Bjornerud said the report would form part of the province’s submission to Investment Canada, which is looking at the deal under foreign ownership rules. The report listed several positive aspects of the $6.1 billion takeover. They include Glencore’s marketing ability around the world, its plan to make Regina the head office of North American agricultural operations and the company’s pledge to maintain existing Viterra commitments to research. “Glencore plans to increase capital expenditures by $100 million over and above Viterra’s projections for the next five years,” Informa said. Bjornerud said the government would ask the federal government to put conditions in place to hold Glencore to such commitments. The report also noted that Glencore expects it could transfer between 20 and 30 positions from Viterra’s Calgary office back to Regina within a year. A handful of European jobs could also move to the city. Glencore welcomed the analysis, saying it was pleased the benefits to farmers were underscored.

“It is important to realize that not with any agricultural conspiracy theory, the bulk of farm output is in relatively few hands,” he said. “What are the implications of that? It is a precarious balance.” There is no accepted industry definition, but farm leaders, economists and academics suggested that a commercial farm with the possibility of making a family living from the operation needs gross revenues of close to $500,000.

Average farmer age rises, says census

Facts and figures Meanwhile, the agriculture census offered other glimpses into the 2011 snapshot of the Canadian industry: • farm operators employed 297,683 paid workers last year, more than 112,000 of them fulltime • most farm operators in 2011 did not work off the farm to supplement farm earnings • for the first time, no-till accounted for more than half of all seeded acres in Canada • the number of certified organic producers in Canada last year increased slightly from 2006 to 3,713 but they still represented just 1.8 percent of farms and a small portion of farm output • farmers reporting that they used the internet to conduct farm business increased more than 20 percentage points to more than 55 percent even though more than half said they did not have access to high-speed broadband service • in an era of rising land prices, more farmers are renting land rather than buying Statistics Canada said it was a snapshot of an industry “growing and evolving.” Canadian Federation of Agriculture president Ron Bonnett said the census, despite the flaw of a lack of farm definition, shows the way of the industry. “I think it re-affirms of lot of the s t u f f w e k n e w w a s hap p e n i n g because of what we see,” he said. “Bigger farms, consolidation, a boom in grain and oilseeds. I guess the thing that most surprised was that the average age of farmers is still going up.”

Nearly 50 percent older than 55 | Bank official says more agriculture graduates are needed STORIES BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

It was a Census of Agriculture finding that caught many industry leaders and analysts by surprise. Despite optimism in the industry and anecdotal evidence about a growing interest by younger people in coming back to the farm, the average farmer age has actually been rising sharply. The average age of a farmer rose two years to 54 between 2006 and 2011, when the most recent Census of Agriculture was conducted. For the first time, farmers older than 55 represented the largest share of farmers — more than 48 percent compared to less than 41 percent in 2006. By contrast, the portion of operators younger than 35 was just 8.2 percent, less than half the proportion in 1991. “This is really concerning,” said Gwen Paddock, Royal Bank of Canada’s national agriculture manager. “The industry should be attracting new blood but in fact, the numbers are falling.” She said a report for the Ontario Agriculture College in Guelph indicated that the number of agriculture graduates is just one-third of the numbers that the industry needs. “That’s worrisome because there is talk of optimism in the industry, but possibly it is just too early to be picked up,” said Paddock. In fact, farm leaders say the number of younger farmers appearing at farm meetings and on the farm is noticeable. “I don’t know if this is typical, but in my own area, I see three, four, five young people coming back to get into the cattle business,” said Canadian Cattlemen’s Association president Martin Unrau of southern Manitoba. “But I also see a problem and cringe when I see how much money they have to get together to get back in. Land prices in this area have gone insane: $1,900 an acre in a recent sale.”

The challenge is that good prices also pull up farm asset values and that is a real barrier to new entrants. It is a sobering reality of the business. AL MUSSELL ANALYST

However, there are other possible explanations for the aging of the farm population. Erik Dorff of Statistics Canada’s agriculture division said the census picked up a new trend: people in their 50s who have finished their careers in other sectors and then deciding to retire back to the farm because it is profitable.

“They are new entrants but they are older new entrants,” he said. “It makes sense. Folks finish their careers, maybe have a pension and then they decide to return to farming where perhaps they were raised.” They are new entrants to farming but they do not lower the average age. Canadian Federation of Agriculture president Ron Bonnett figures that explanation makes some sense. His son, Terry, who has worked for years in the oil industry in Azerbaijan, dreams of returning to the northwestern Ontario cattle operation when he retires in a few years. “I can imagine him coming back and adding some cows here,” said Bonnett. “But that won’t be until he is 50 or more so that won’t have much impact on the average age.” At the George Morris Centre in Guelph, Ont., analyst Al Mussell said

the lure of better times on the farm for younger people must be tempered by the reality that higher commodity prices usually are capitalized into land prices, which means getting into the farming sector becomes more expensive in good times. “The challenge is that good prices also pull up farm asset values and that is a real barrier to new entrants,” he said. “It is a sobering reality of the business.” Rose Olfert of the University of Saskatchewan said that like most other industries, the farm sector has the baby boomer generation working through the system, not yet ready to retire. “And with good prices, there is no longer the pressure to retire,” she said. “With prices good, there are a lot of pressures to consolidate and it is hard now for a young person to buy in.”


Flawed tally of farm numbers distorts ag picture: think-tank When Statistics Canada published the first results of its 2011 Census of Agriculture last week, the results had an air of unreality to many farm leaders and analysts. There were more than 205,000 Canadian farmers in 2011, down 10 percent since 2006, and on average they were farming 778 acre operations, said the census result. But for most farm leaders and farm economists, the number of “commercial” farmers is significantly smaller than that and the average size of a farm trying to be a successful business is far larger. “There is no doubt that once you get these numbers, you really have to bore down into them to see what is really going on in agriculture because these numbers are a bit skewed,” said Canadian Federation of Agriculture president Ron Bonnett. At the Guelph-based George Morris


Centre, senior researcher Al Mussell argued that the data produced by Statistics Canada has problems because of its definition of a farmer. “This really is watered down by the ridiculous way they measure farms because really, there are not that many real farms,” he said. “There are a lot of paper farms.” The problem, say the critics, is that people could self-identify as a farmer in the mandatory farm census form sent out last year. As well, no minimum level of farm sales is needed and actual sales are not required.

“For the purpose of the Census of Agriculture, a census farm is any operation that produces agricultural products with the intention of selling them,” says Statistics Canada. The result, for example, is that of the 205,730 counted census farms, 37 percent claimed gross receipts of less than $25,000 annually and produced 1.4 percent of the national farm output. By contrast, farms with gross receipts over $500,000 represented 11.5 percent of farms and 68 percent of gross farm receipts. “Clearly no one can realistically expect to make a living from the farm with gross sales of less than $25,000 so there has to be some other form of income support,” said Gwen Paddock, national agriculture manager for the Royal Bank of Canada. “These generally would be hobby or lifestyle farmers.” Still, she said their contribution

should not be dismissed. “The fact that they are small and have other sources of income doesn’t take away from their contribution to the local rural community where they live, the role they play in the local economy.” Mussell has argued that national agriculture policy should not be based on the assumption that there are more than 200,000 “farmers” in Canada trying to make a living. Instead, he has argued there should be a two-track agricultural policy that provides support for commercial farmers while providing programs for lifestyle farmers. The large percentage of small operations captured in the agriculture census also affects other calculations, say the critics. It exaggerates the amount of attrition in the industry, under-estimates the actual size of most commercial

farms and affects calculations such as the percent of farmers who use the internet for marketing decisions. The census showed that the number of farms using the internet increased substantially to 55.6 percent in 2011 compared to 2006. However, Bonnett argued that the 45 percent who do not may well be smaller farmers who do not need online sales or equipment purchases. Market garden and community supported agriculture operations that deliver produce to customers would be an obvious exception. “But I can’t imagine any commercial farmer not using the internet now for business,” he said. “I use it to sell, to contract, to buy equipment. In rural Canada, I think most operators who want access to high speed can find a way to do it.” FOR MORE ON THE CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE, SEE PAGE 16.






Schmidt stands to make $30M Big package for Viterra CEO | Mixed reaction from farm groups to CEO’s potential purse BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The man who steered a Saskatchewan grain industry icon out of bankruptcy and into prosperity will be well compensated for his past leadership. A management information circular sent to Viterra shareholders discloses the compensation that chief executive officer Mayo Schmidt will receive if shareholders vote May 29 in favour of the $6.1 billion sale of the company to Glencore International. Schmidt has 633,211 common shares in the company that will be worth $10.3 million at the proposed bid of $16.25 per share. The vesting of his options, employee share units, performance share units and restricted share units would put another $12.9 million in his pocket. His severance package, benefits and short-term incentive plan are worth another $6 million, for a total value of slightly less than $30 million. That’s on top of his annual salary and bonuses, which amounted to $5.1 million last year. National Farmers Union president Terry Boehm is appalled. He said it’s a perfect example of the widening gap between the middle class and the upper class that is at the core of the Occupy movement. Boehm resents the fact that the assets built by farmers through the co-operative movement are being sold off to an international commodity trading company. “One of the fellows that is facilitating this walks away extremely

wealthy and that is really galling to all those farmers who supported the coop and the pool and fought against its destruction,” he said. Kevin Bender, president of the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association, wasn’t too taken aback by Schmidt’s potential compensation package. “It looks like he has done well for himself,” he said. “$30 million sounds like a big number but when you look at the way the company has gone from being three prairie pools to really a global entity, the company has done well under his leadership.” Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, Viterra’s predecessor, was drowning in $1 billion in debt when Schmidt took over the reins in 2000. Back-to-back droughts in 2001 and 2002 slashed revenues, forcing the company into temporary default with its lenders. Schmidt hashed out a financial restructuring plan with the banks and bondholders in 2003. By 2007 the company had undergone enough of a financial turnaround that it was able to buy rival grain company Agricore United for $1.8 billion to form Viterra. “How that happened mystifies me to this day,” said Boehm. He can’t understand how Schmidt convinced bankers to leverage the deal. However, he doesn’t think Schmidt deserves all the credit for the increase in Viterra’s share value. Boehm believes Schmidt benefited greatly from the tremendous run-up in grain prices that started in 2008.

Market analysts see Viterra as small part of global brand Industry giant | Agriculture only 8.4 percent of company’s sales revenue BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Farmers who think of Viterra as a prairie giant might be surprised to see that it appears to others as a corporate pygmy. However, the pygmy is about to get bigger. “We believe Glencore will be able to market Viterra’s volumes more efficiently, effectively and benefit from additional regional price arbitrage and blending opportunities,” says a UBS Investment Research report on the Glencore takeover of Viterra. “There are also some operational synergies in Australia where the Glencore-Viterra assets overlap.” UBS, which is a Swiss investment bank, and Canada’s BMO Capital Markets see Glencore’s purchase of Viterra as a small incremental expansion for Glencore overall, but a significant one for its agriculture division. UBS predicts that Glencore will increase earnings per share by only two percent next year by adding Vit-

erra’s earnings to its total, but will significantly increase the size of its agricultural operations, which is now the global commodity giant’s smallest commodity division. Glencore’s mining and minerals division is much larger and the basis of its wealth. Agriculture will produce 8.4 percent of Glencore’s sales revenue this year and 5.4 percent of its pre-tax operating earnings, UBS said. BMO said Glencore’s agriculture division now contributes seven to eight percent of the company’s pretax operating earnings, which will jump to 12 percent after the Viterra takeover. Glencore’s present agricultural operations include companies that crush oilseeds, produce biodiesel, produce ethanol, mill grain and store crops in-country and at port. Most of Glencore’s operations are in Central and South America, Australia, Europe and the former Soviet Union. It has had little presence in North America.

Even though Glencore’s world agriculture production, processing and trading operations occur on six continents, BMO described the pre-Viterra agriculture division as “modest-sized” and that “agriculture plays a minor part in the industrial asset total.” Glencore is also in the middle of a takeover of fellow global commodity giant Xstrata, which is a much more significant move for the company. Investment analysts consider it highly likely that shareholders and the federal government will approve Glencore’s takeover of Viterra, mostly because Glencore is paying top dollar and is ensuring that Canadians and farmers don’t become worried about a foreign company getting control of prairie grain. No one in the investment analysis industry seems to think Glencore bought Viterra cheap. UBS said it is buying the company at the upper end of the price range for similar agricultural companies. BMO considered the $16.25 per share price to be “a very full price.”


$4.8 million earmarked for Sask. bridge, culvert projects BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Repairing or replacing 28 bridges and culverts this year will help bring rural corridors up to much needed primary weight standards, says Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities president David Marit. Projects in 24 RMs will receive $4.8 million from the Municipal Roads for

the Economy Program. The most recent provincial budget allocated $23.5 million for the program, which is the same amount as last year. The bridge component pays up to 90 percent of eligible costs to municipalities. Marit said bridges can cost up to $700,000 each. “We’ve got a lot of good roads out there, but the bridges can’t take the weights of these trucks that are on

them now so we can’t bring (the roads) to primary weight standards,” he said. “We’re targeting the bridges in these corridors and bringing them up to standard.” RMs apply to the program and a committee comprising SARM and highways ministry representatives decides which projects will proceed, based on traffic volumes and the condition of the bridge or culvert.

The MREP will also help pay half the cost to upgrade more than 165 kilometres of road. The heavy haul-high volume component pays for grading, clay capping and paving on municipal roads that see high volumes of truck traffic. Fifteen RMs will receive a total of $7.3 million. Sixteen RMs will share $4.3 million to develop primary weight truck routes through SARM’s Clearing the

Path (CTP) initiative. These roads usually cross more than one municipality and must connect to primary weight provincial highways. MREP also pays to operate and maintain previously built CTP routes in 175 RMs. Highways minister Jim Reiter said municipalities play a key role in the provincial economy and deserve the support.





Alta. farmers evaluate frost harm BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Sub-zero temperatures in southern Alberta May 10-11 had growers worried about crops, but reports as of May 14 indicated only pockets of major damage. Alberta Agriculture’s AgroClimatic Information Service recorded overnight lows of -5 C near Barons late last week, while Champion recorded -4, Rolling Hills and Etzikom -3.5 and Iron Springs -5. The swath of potentially killing frost extended south of Vulcan to the U.S. border, concentrated mainly in the southwest. A considerable amount of early seeded canola had already emerged, causing concern about damage to tender young plants. Troy Prosofsky, southern Alberta agronomy specialist for the Canola Council of Canada, scouted crops in the region May 14 and found a mixed bag of results, with some farmers already facing tough decisions. “I would bet there’s going to be pockets where people are going to be reseeding,” said Prosofsy. “But it’s better than it could have been.” He encouraged farmers in frostaffected areas to examine the canola cotyledons and look for pinching off. If it’s still green, the plant will likely survive although maturity could be delayed by one or two weeks. Harry Brook of Alberta Agriculture said May 14 there might be isolated pockets of canola damage depending on how long the crop was subjected to frost. “There’s been some damage done. It remains to be seen how severe. But there’s probably not a whole lot of reseeding to be done. That’s my best guess.” A news release issued by the canola council earlier this week said temperatures of -8 C were recorded May 10-11, and that it would take a few days to gauge the health of the cotyledons. The plant is likely dead if no growth occurs within two or three days of frost. As for reseeding, “if one or two plants per sq. foot have survived and if that stand is fairly consistent throughout the field, the best choice is probably to leave it alone,” said the council news release. “A thin stand is not optimal for yield, but a thin stand in mid May may have better yield and quality potential than a reseeded field, particularly in southern Alberta.” The council also advised that herbicide spraying can resume once good growing conditions return, which they did as of May 12, and if there’s no evidence of canola or weed damage. “If there was heavy frost and plant tissue damage is greater than 40 percent of total leaf area, allow new leaves to grow before making herbicide applications,” the council news release said. As for seeding progress in Alberta, Brook estimated 25 to 30 percent is complete, although progress is better in the south. “I think psychologically, because we had very little winter and it’s been promising spring for months, people think it’s late,” Brook said.“But we’re basically back to just an average start.”

With seeding in full swing across the Prairies, many farmers are discovering a shortage of fertilizer exists. Scott Stauffer of Tofield, Alta., was recently seeding and stopped to check a liquid fertilizer hose. | MARY MACARTHUR PHOTO FERTILIZER | SUPPLY

Tight fertilizer supply concerns farmers Early start to U.S. seeding blamed | Urea, ammonium sulfate hard to find on Prairies BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Farmers are nervous about tight fertilizer supplies in the countryside. “There is a lot of speculation that there may not be enough to go around,” said Kevin Bender, president of the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association. Directors from all three prairie provinces are telling Bender that urea and ammonium sulfate are particularly hard to find. “There’s even rumours that some of that pre-bought stuff won’t be available,” he said. Viterra and Yara Belle Plaine were contacted for this story but did not respond in time for deadlines. However, Saskatchewan fertilizer retailer who requested anonymity confirmed that supplies of the two key nutrients are indeed tight. A number of factors are contributing to the shortage, including American farmers starting seeding about a month earlier than usual, which

caught dealers and wholesalers off guard. U.S. farmers also intend to plant four million more acres of corn than last year, and corn is a fertilizer intensive crop. How e v e r, t h e b i g g e s t re a s o n behind this year’s shortage dates back to 2008. Fertilizer warehouses in the United States typically buy offshore product and then sell it to dealers, who in turn sell it to farmers. In the past, they would have stockpiled supplies. However, that all changed when fertilizer prices spiked in the fall of 2008 and then crashed, causing huge losses for warehouses full of highpriced product. Warehouses now refuse to take a position on fertilizer unless dealers or farmers have taken a position. “This year nobody was buying so they weren’t filling their sheds,” said the Saskatchewan fertilizer retailer. The warehouses simply couldn’t keep up with demand when U.S. farmers hit the fields early and decid-

ed to plant a lot more corn. “The only place in North America to buy from was Canadian manufacturers,” he said, which has resulted in a shortage of product and rising prices north of the border. Documents accompanying Agrium’s first quarter results for 2012 support this explanation. “Our retail business capitalized on one of the earliest starts to the North American spring season in history, achieving its highest ever sales and EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) for a first quarter,” Agrium president Mike Wilson said in a news release. Crop nutrient sales reached $1 billion for the quarter, up 46 percent from the same quarter last year, primarily because of a 43 percent surge in sales volumes. Higher prices also contributed to the strong first quarter results. Urea prices in the U.S. Gulf increased by more than 80 percent from the end of January to mid-April.

Agrium noted that North American imports of offshore urea were down about 10 percent for the first eight months of the 2011-12 fertilizer year “due to buyer caution regarding inventor y management for the spring season, which contributed to a supply deficit.” Unplanned manufacturing plant outages in North America and Pakistan and delays in new projects in Qatar and Algeria contributed to the urea shortfall. Bender hopes the supply shortage sorts itself out in a hurry because this is no time for farmers to be cutting back on fertilizer when grain prices are so high. The Saskatchewan retailer said growers who pre-booked their fertilizer will be covered at his retail outlet because it has a storage shed and unfilled contracts with manufacturers. However, it will be taking a cautious approach when it comes to supplying walk-up traffic until more supplies are secured.


Geneticist’s work explored beef rate of gain, efficient use of feed BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Roy Berg, a world-renowned animal geneticist who helped revolutionize the beef industry, has died. He was 85. Berg revolutionized the beef industry during the 1960s through his hybrid breeding programs, which

increased production 30 to 40 percent. The University of Alberta scientist was larger than life, said John Kennelly, dean of the U of A’s Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences. “He was a very accomplished researcher who cared passionately about students. He was one of the best-known professors ever to work in our faculty and his impact on the

agricultural sector in Alberta is unparalleled.” Berg grew up on a farm near Millicent, Alta., and was one of four brothers who studied agriculture.

Oilseed price fall: correction or trend? First serious challenge to four month rally | Upheaval in Europe shakes bullish market outlook for oilseeds BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

The numbers were bullish, yet the market did a bearish beat-down on oilseed prices a few days after the May 10 U.S. Department of Agriculture reports. Market analysts are scratching their heads and trying to figure out if something in the supply and demand fundamentals changed. Are oilseed prices returning to earth after their recent dramatic increase, dragged down by the enormous weight of the sinking commodity complex? Is it just a correction after such a strong recent rally? Does this directional change mean much in the context of the annual summer weather market beginning to take control? “When it’s driven by outside factors, it’s a bit hard to pin down,” Jon Driedger of FarmLink Marketing Solutions said after a two-day canola price slide that cut more than $25 per tonne off July canola futures and about $20 off of November futures. “The oilseed story really hasn’t changed, but there’s a lot of bigger picture uncertainty out there.” World markets have been shaken in the past two weeks by the political chaos in Greece, the election of a French socialist president who m i g ht n o t s u p p o r t G e r ma n y ’s approach to reforming eurozone finances and general world economic slowness. JP Morgan Chase’s May 11 announcement of an unexpected $2 billion loss on a hedge position rattled investors worldwide, who saw echoes of 2008 and signs that the best operators on Wall Street had not necessarily learned how to avoid massive losses. Commodity markets in general have been falling since the beginning of March and the CRB index, a measure of a basket of commodity prices, is now down 10 percent. Corn has gradually weakened since the beginning of the year, falling 15 percent for new crop prices. However, its trajectory since March has looked similar to that of the CRB and not weaker. Soybeans and canola showed the opposite trend until recent days, with new crop canola futures rising 15 percent since the beginning of the

They surged higher since March, propelled by strong demand, low stocks and the need to encourage more seeded acreage. Union Securities broker Ken Ball thinks the dramatic selloff May 11 and May 14 reveals the general commodity slump that is finally

hitting oilseeds. “Crude breaks, gold breaks, now they’re going to have to dump their soybean positions,” Ball said about the investment funds that drove oilseed prices higher but that are now quickly selling to cover losses in other commodities. “There are a lot of funds taking ugly,

ugly hits here. Some of them have collapsed. There has been speculative money flushing out for a while now.” The USDA supply and demand reports did not directly undermine soybean prices by finding bearish stocks or likely production. USDA forecasted a 2012-13 U.S.


16 day supply

soybean crop of 3.205 billion bushels, the third largest on record. However, because of strong demand it expects stocks by the end of 2012-13 to contract to 145 million bushels, slightly more than a two-week supply and a stocks-to-use ratio “at a historically low 4.4 percent.” Soybean prices rose immediately after the report. “Soybean prices to stay the leader of the CBOT complex,” was the title of Barclays’ Commodities Research daily newsletter, mere hours before the two-day price slide began. Barclays raised its new crop soybean price projection that morning by $1.10 per bushel. However, by the end of trade May 11, the AgriCharts newsletter noted that “soybeans ended the session sharply lower, not responding to what would be considered positive news to price.” Ball said a fundamental element of the investment fund selloff might be that the report found no major new bullish information about old crop soybean stocks, pegged at 210 million bushels, so funds might have decided the party was over. “They said that (stocks number) is not enough to stay in at with $14.50 (soy)beans,” said Ball. Many analysts don’t accept the USDA’s low acreage number for U.S. soybeans. The May 10 report used the March Prospective Plantings acreage number and the price rise since then probably encouraged more soybean acres. So traders are adding 60 to 80 million bu. to 2012-13 stocks forecast, putting them in “quasi-comfortable territory,” said Ball. The coincidence of the soybean and canola price slump with the general world market slump has worried some analysts who fear the oilseeds are succumbing to overwhelming worldwide commodity pressure. However, there is another happier interpretation for the recent selloff. Almost no commodity goes straight up continually without a correction, in which overbullishness is taken out of the market by sober second thought. If the commodity still seems to have the same fundamental strength as it did when it was going up, then it can begin rising again in another leg of a continuing rally. “If that’s the case, then this isn’t such a bad thing,” said Driedger.





Stronger feed barley, oat prices could hurt demand Falling corn prices | Feedlot operators are suffering from high grain prices and may see corn as an attractive alternative BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Barley and oat producers have enjoyed price rallies recently, even as the values of sister commodities have fallen. However, some analysts warn that the stronger prices now might mean weaker demand in the future. The more that buyers pay now, the less they will want to buy in the future, especially when they have alternatives. “The bleeding in the livestock (feeding) sector is pretty severe,” said Errol Anderson of Pro Market Communications, referring to feedlot operators who are caught between high costs for feeder cattle and high feed grain costs but who are unable to push slaughter cattle prices higher. “There’s got to be a balance and the balance is out of synch.” Mid-prairie farmgate old crop barley prices of about $5 per bushel are hurting feeders, who have seen fed cattle prices tumble since March. Feeders will put fewer cattle on feed if the losses continue, which will mean lower demand for 2012-13 barley, Anderson said. Oat prices are also rewarding growers but punishing animal feeders. Farmers saw oats as one of the two or three worst-returning crops for 201213 for most of the winter because of low forward prices. However, oats have rallied since the second week of March and caught up much of the

Farmers might enjoy stronger feed barley and oat prices, but feedlot operators might try to push down prices by importing corn. | FILE PHOTO ground lost to competing crops over the winter. Relative returns before seeding are keenly watched because oats have to compete with other prairie crops for the same acres. December oats have rallied recently from $3.10 per bushel to $3.40. However, while oats were catching up to other prairie crops in terms of relative profitability, U.S. corn prices

were falling. The further that corn prices fall or oats rise, the more horse feed manufacturers in the United States will try to substitute corn for oats. “As we’re trying to fight for acres, we’re going to be losing demand,” said Strychar, who has reduced his expected horse feed consumption number for 2012-13 by 50,000 tonnes because of the changing corn-oat

price spread. “Prices for oats have turned around and that’s a two-edged sword.” Strychar said the best long-term defence against this kind of unpredictable spread swing is to create demand specific to oats. Buyers who demand oats because they are better for horses than corn or other feeds will not be moved as much by price differentials.

“We’re not dealing with it as a price issue but as a value-added proposition,” said Strychar, who has been meeting with horse feed experts across the U.S. as part of his work with the Equine Feed Oat Project. Maintaining oat demand in the coming year will probably rely on more than price, Strychar said, because oats stocks could slump and corn supply double. In its May 10 supply and demand reports, the U.S. Department of Agriculture predicted that corn stocks will double in 2012-13, which is what’s been undercutting corn prices. At the same time, oat stocks are low and could get lower. “We’re closer to the record low than we are to the average,” said Strychar. Anderson said cheap corn compared to relatively expensive barley will cause Canadian feeders to import corn. He thinks farmers should take advantage of today’s prices on both old crop and new crop. Old crop barley at $5 is “one hell of a price. To me that’s like $14 canola,” said Anderson. New crop bids are 50 to 80 cents per b u s h e l l o w e r, b u t p r o d u c e r s shouldn’t expect them to stand if corn prices keep falling and feeders bring in corn. “I’m guessing that corn’s going down to $4.50, and if it does our barley prices are doomed,” said Anderson.


Canadian canola exports may rise with poor crops in China, EU BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Rabobank says poor rapeseed crops in the European Union and China will cause them to have higher-than-expected canola imports. The bank’s analysis forecasts four million tonnes of rapeseed-canola demand from the EU in 2012-13, which is 38 percent or 1.1 million tonnes more than the U.S. Department of Agriculture forecast. Rabobank calls its import outlook for China conservative at 2.3 million tonnes, but it is up from the USDA’s forecast of 2.1 million tonnes. Adverse fall planting conditions and an unseasonably cold winter are expected to slash the EU’s 2012 rapeseed crop by 1.6 million tonnes, with most of the losses occurring in Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria. “Some weather improvement in Western Europe may offset the downgrades, but we remain cautious that even our current (production) estimate may be too high,” said the firm in its May 4 Agri Commodity Markets Research report. Rabobank believes the rapeseed shortfall in the EU and elsewhere has not been fully priced into rapeseedcanola markets and will provide “further upside to prices.” The bank is forecasting a combined 2.4 million tonne reduction in rapeseed production in the EU, China and Ukraine, which when added to already tight 2012-13 global soybean

Rabobank says smaller canola crops in Europe and China will lead to strong demand for Canadian canola. | FILE PHOTO supplies will continue to drive the entire oilseed complex higher. “Global soybean and rapeseed production are both forecast to decline year-on-year in 2011-12 for the first time since 1988-89 and by a record large 28 million tonnes,” it said. Crop tours confirmed that China will have higher rapeseed yields than last year, but the gains will be more than offset by reduced acreage. Rabobank expects China will import two million tonnes of canola and rapeseed in 2011-12, up from the USDA’s estimate of 1.8 million tonnes but well below the record of three million tonnes in 2008-09. That will be followed by 2.3 million tonnes of demand in 2012-13.

“The vast majority of its import needs will be sourced from Canada, whereas only some EU countries will import Canadian canola due to GM restrictions,” it said. Jim Everson, vice-president of corporate affairs with the Canola Council of Canada, said Canada is slowly increasing its share of EU business. Canadian expor ters shipped 156,000 tonnes of canola to the EU through the first eight months of 2011-12 compared to 289,200 tonnes for the 2010-11 campaign and 95,000 tonnes in 2009-10. Most genetically modified canola traits have full approval in the EU with the exception of Oxy-235, a long deregistered Bayer CropScience

trait. That has paved the way for Canadian exporters to ship product to Europe, although there is always a chance that trace amounts of Oxy235 or some other unapproved GM trait could disrupt trade. Everson said demand is growing in Europe because of this year’s crop shortage and because some member countries have implemented the EU’s Renewable Energy Directive, which calls for 10 percent of fuel to be biofuel by 2020. That is creating a bigger market for canola biodiesel. Oilseed exports to China are booming. The country bought 1.84 million tonnes of canola through the first eight months of 2011-12, twice as much as it did in all of 2010-11. Rabobank said imports could climb beyond its expectations this year and next if China and Canada can resolve a trade barrier surrounding blackleg disease. Everson said the two countries are working on a joint research project that could soon lead to a resolution of the longstanding trade irritant. The Canadian contingent hopes to present its findings to Chinese authorities before the end of 2012. On the supply side, Rabobank is forecasting record 2012-13 canola crops of 16.5 million tonnes for Canada and 3.3 million tonnes for Australia. It noted that its Australian estimate could be optimistic, given the potential onset of an El Nino weather pattern that would lead to dry conditions in that country.

“Any weather disruptions in these countries would be significantly bullish for prices,” said the analyst. Exports out of Ukraine are likely to remain flat or decline in 2012-13 because of a 14 percent year-on-year decline in its rapeseed harvest this year, the lowest level since 2007-08.

Turmoil in financial markets takes toll on ag commodities MARKET WATCH



am going to have to start expanding the range of significant dates that I mark on my calendar, and maybe you should too. I’ve long marked down agriculturally significant dates, such as crop production and livestock inventory reports from Statistics Canada and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. However, I’m now going to add stuff like the election dates of certain European countries, deadlines for when Greece has to meet debt repayment requirements and when U.S. politicians vote to renew the federal debt ceiling or to end or renew former U.S. president George Bush’s tax cuts. These votes and decisions don’t add or subtract one bushel of crop or one kilogram of meat to the world’s food stores, but they can throw a nervous market into a tizzy, causing tidal waves of cash to wash in or out of the world’s futures exchanges. For farmers, it is best to get your pricing done ahead of these political events. The experience of recent weeks provides an example. Oilseed futures rose into the first week of May. Big crops were forecast, but the market seemed comfortable with that. The world needs more grain and oilseeds to rebuild exceptionally tight soybean, canola and corn stocks. I’d spent lots of time analyzing agricultural seeding and stocks reports, but perhaps should have spent more time following the opinion polls in Greece and France.

Markets, already nervous over the Greek debt crisis and European political change, were further roiled when JPMorgan Chase & Co. said a failed trading strategy had cost the bank $2 billion. | REUTERS PHOTO Here is what I wrote in the May 3 paper after setting out the scenario of tight supply and strong demand: “The market could move a little (lower) once seeding is complete and if the weather is conducive to good yields, but not a lot lower, barring a wholesale market melt down t r i g g e re d by a n o t h e r c r i s i s i n Europe’s debt situation.” I was aware debt remained an overhanging issue, that many Europeans were unhappy with the austerity measures their governments were implementing and that elections in France and Greece were coming up. But I’d been lulled into a false sense of security because the agreements

to bail out Greece, drafted during the winter debt crisis, seemed to be working. It appeared that, although it was difficult, Europe was finding a way to keep the debt problem from running out of control. Also, most U.S. companies presented first quarter financial reports that were better than expected, giving stock markets a buoyant feel. But then French president Nicolas Sarkozy, who along with German chancellor Angela Merkel was a chief architect of the European Union’s recent economic strategy, was rejected by voters who favoured Francois Hollande and his promise to ease the country’s austerity program.

Also on May 6, the Greek vote led to a stalemate where no party has enough support to form a coalition government. There is now a political vacuum in the country, even as it faces nearby deadlines to make payments on its vast debt. Then throw in some disastrous trading at JPMorgan Chase that cost the bank more than $2 billion and you have a market that is shaking like a crack addict cut off from his supply. This uncertainty will go on for weeks and maybe months, making it more difficult to revive crop market rallies, particularly because the weather is so far excellent for U.S. crops and turning good for western

Canadian crops. It was unlikely that this spring’s crop prices would stay at lofty levels forever, but the question was: were we due for a regular market correction or a melt down? We don’t know for sure yet. However, it would be good in the future to be more aware of the scheduled events that can trigger big market movements. And we must be aware that those events go beyond agr icultural reports to include political happenings far removed from the farm. Follow D’Arce McMillan on Twitter @darcemcmillan.


Grain buyers have confidence in Canadian quality Exports in open market | South American officials hope quality remains BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

South American buyers of Canadian spring wheat and durum are hoping Canada’s new open market doesn’t damage the quality and consistency of prairie grain. “We are going to be monitoring Canadian wheat,” said Luis Mancilla Lopez, a mill manager with Molinera del Maipo in Santiago, Chile. “If for some reason there is something unfavourable, we will let you know.” Venezuelan durum mill manager Freddy Rivas of Pastas Capri said he is confident Canada’s hard-won reputation for top quality grain won’t be thrown away. “We are concerned, but we also think that Canada is very smart and I think that Canada will maintain its quality,” said Rivas. “In Venezuela we are very demanding and we want the best wheat,

which is why we buy Canadian wheat. But we believe Canada is very smart and will continue to maintain that high quality that we demand, and also the service that we have been provided so far.” Rivas and Lopez were in Winnipeg attending the Canadian International Grains Institute’s Latin America-Canada Milling Program, which brings Central and South American millers to the heart of the Canadian grain industry to work with Canadian technical experts on using Canada’s export grains. Rivas and Lopez, who spoke with the assistance of a translator, said their companies buy Canadian wheat and durum instead of American or Argentinian grain because of Canada’s better consistency and conformation to specifications. “We know that there is a control with Canadian wheat,” said Lopez. “We know that when we buy a certain kind of wheat that we will receive

the wheat with the characteristics that we have ordered. We know that there is a quality guarantee with Canadian wheat.” Rivas said that is enough to counteract the geographical advantage enjoyed by nearby American and Argentinian wheat. His company buys 85 percent of its grain from Canada and has done so consistently for 15 years, with the exception of two periods when the Venezuelan economy was disrupted. Rivas’ company bought wheat from the U.S. and Mexico during a general strike because supplies there were close and could be brought in quickly. However, Canadian durum is preferred during more predictable times, and Rivas said he hopes to see the proportion of Canadian grain increase. His company now buys some hard red winter wheat from the U.S., but he

Millers Luis Mancilla Lopez of Chile, left, and Freddy Rivas of Venezuela say they are pleased with the quality and consistency of Canadian grain. | ED WHITE PHOTO will encourage his firm’s buyers to switch to Canada if prairie farmers begin growing that type of wheat in larger quantities. “I want to tell my management to buy similar wheat from Canada

instead, because we want to buy 100 percent Canadian wheat because we know that it’s clean, we know the quality is always uniform and we also know that that’s what our consumer wants.”



Corn falls on prediction of large harvest



A weaker loonie and stronger cattle futures early last week lifted Canadian cash cattle prices. Stronger U.S. wholesale beef prices and profitable beef packer margins early in the week lifted cattle futures, but they retreated later when the U.S. Department of Agriculture forecast larger corn supplies. Cheaper corn may cause producers to feed more animals to heavier weights. Worries about eurozone debt and U.S. banks added downward pressure to futures late in the week. Canadian cash steers rose $2.30 per hundredweight to average $111.59 per hundredweight. Heifers rose $1.30 to average $110.85. Alberta rail values rallied $4 to $185-$188. Sales volume was up 83 percent to 25,759 head after slow marketings the previous week. Most of the offerings sold, but a few were carried over. The Alberta fed cash-to-futures basis widened 30 cents to -$4.57. Weekly fed cattle exports to April 28 fell 13 percent to 9,292 head. Western Canadian fed cattle slaughter to May 5 totalled 41,248 head, up 10 percent from the previous week. Volumes in May are typically large, and U.S. cattle on feed reports indicate market-ready volumes will soon increase and likely soften American interest in Canadian cattle. This should pressure cash prices lower unless demand improves.

Recent cool wet weather made for undesirable calving conditions. The non-fed market continues to defy the seasonal downward price trend. Cows strengthened 50 cents-$1 per cwt. with D1, D2 cows at $73-$85 to average $78.81. D3s ranged $62-$76 to average $70.07. The price spread between D1, D2 cows and D3 cows should narrow because demand for 90 percent lean trim is excellent. Butcher bulls traded steady. Bull slaughter is down 28 percent from last year.

CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — The forecast of a record U.S. corn harvest by the U.S. Department of Agriculture has some analysts forecasting that the new-crop December contract will fall to $4 per bushel. The December contract dipped below $5 May 11 for the first time in 17 months but then edged back above the psychologically important price point. “New crop corn will be about $4 probably after mid-July,” said analyst Robert Bresnahan of Trilateral Inc. in Chicago. “A large portion of the crop was planted early and they received timely rains.” The USDA sees a record corn crop of 14.8 billion bushels, up nearly 20 percent from last year. It raised its yield estimate to 166 bu. per acre from the trend-line projection of 164 bu. However, some critics called the increase premature, especially ahead of critical summer plant growth stages. Investment bank Goldman Sachs noted that the USDA’s forecast was higher than its own of 160 bu. and “higher than we had expected it to forecast given the historical forecasting methodology, as (USDA) decided to exclude the low 2011 yield in forecasting.” The bank maintained its six- and 12-month outlook for corn prices at $5.25 per bu.

FEEDER CATTLE MIXED Losses in the feeding sector and unattractive break-evens later in the year have feedlots taking a disci-


plined approach in placing feeders. The Canfax average steer price fell 28 cents per cwt. and heifers rose 41 cents per cwt. Placed against the summer market, steers and heifers heavier than 900 pounds are at the lowest level of the year. Lots of heifers are being sold as producers finalize their annual breeding stock culling. Heifers account for 70 to 80 percent of the feeders on offer. Alberta auction volumes totalled 19,980 head, down seven percent. Weekly feeder exports to April 28 totalled 3,699, down 13 percent. Replacement female orders have been filled and fading buyer interest could make it difficult to uncover a market premium. U.S. interest in Canadian spot cash market could improve if feeder values move much lower. Expensive barley could prompt feedlots to import U.S. corn.


U.S. BEEF LOWER U.S. cut-out values fell $1-$3 per cwt. Weekly Canadian cutouts to May 4 closed mostly steady with AAA at $185.61 and AA at $184.41. Demand for end cuts is sluggish and could ultimately force processers to grind chuck and round primals. Montreal wholesale for delivery this week was steady at $210-$212 per cwt.

WP LIVESTOCK REPORT HOGS STEADY The usual seasonal rally in hog prices has not occurred because of weak pork demand and heavier carcass weights. U.S. packer margins were negative most of the week, but edged into positive territory May 11 as the cutout rose during the week. Iowa-southern Minnesota live hogs were $57.50 to $58 US per hundredweight May 11, steady with May 4. The U.S. pork carcass cut-out value rose to $80.55, up from $78.86 May 4.

The U.S. federal weekly slaughter was 2.09 million, down from 2.07 million the previous week. U.S. slaughter is up 1.5 percent.

BISON UNCHANGED The Canadian Bison Association said grade A bulls in the desirable weight range were $3.65-$3.90 per pound hot hanging weight. Grade A heifers were $3.60-$3.90. Animals older than 30 months and those outside the desirable weight range may be discounted.

Slaughter cows and bulls averaged $2.50-$2.70. In the live market, heifers born in 2011 were $2-$2.50 and bulls were $2.25-$2.75. Feeder bulls and heifers born in 2010 were $2-$2.10.

SHEEP, LAMBS STEADY Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported 1,035 sheep and lambs and 51 goats traded May 7. All class of sheep and lambs sold actively at steady prices. Goats sold steady to stronger.

Eliminating efficacy test may have beneficial side


he federal government is apparently initiating a plan that would eliminate the requirement that fertilizers undergo efficacy testing before they are allowed on the market. A study of the pros and cons of such a change suggests farmers could benefit. Presently, fertilizer products entering the market must be tested for efficacy and to ensure they are safe for people, plants, animals and the environment. The rules for safety would not change. The efficacy tests now carried out vary from simple calculations to analysis of complex statistical data and plot trial evaluations. But in all cases, the efficacy claims on the product label must be verifiable by science and the product benefits must be substantiated. Doing away with these tests would mould the Canadian system into one similar to what exists in the United States. That system survives on the assumption that inferior products, or those that don’t work at all, will be swept off the market by their own shortcomings. Products that fail won’t sell once the word gets around. And in this information age, in which social media tools like Twitter can buoy a revolution, word gets around more quickly than at any other time in human history. Farmers are a sophisticated lot with access to all manner of crop advisers, research information and agronomy knowledge. Does anybody seriously think that they are going to risk their livelihoods by using magical potions sold by those fabled snake oil salesmen in Depression-era stories? Successful farm operators simply don’t operate that way. Some might test a new product on an acre here or a plot there, but they are not going to jeopardize whole fields or entire harvests on untried, flash-in-the-pan products. Eliminating the efficacy test could be a further boon for farmers, once the delays for registration approvals are reduced, sending more competing products into the marketplace.


Additional new products would also likely be encouraged to enter the Canadian market thanks to a simplified registration system. And more competing products on the market should translate into more competitive pricing, while also helping to ensure that Canadian farmers have access to the same products as the American farmers they compete against in international markets. But there is a rub. There always is. Chief among them could be a deluge of ineffective products and scandalous label claims, which even if they don’t dupe farmers, could cause a storm of confusion, enough to leave many people struggling to find the truth. However, there are other laws in place to deal with these situations, without locking fertilizer efficacy testing into the registration regulations. Canada has consumer protection laws that prohibit misleading label claims and deceptive marketing practices. Government must ensure farmers and all consumers are educated about these laws and how to access agencies and seek reprisals when required. As well, Ottawa should take great pains to ensure it has an active, aggressive enforcer of consumer fraud legislation. But with these contingencies in place, the proposed changes appear to offer a better deal for farmers.


Given the importance of the Japanese market for Canada, it’s imperative that any trade deal we sign with that country have a very strong agriculture package.

We need to finish off some of these trade deals. We’ve got some pretty big markets out there. I think we need to actually close and sign off on some of these…

Statistics Canada must rethink how it defines farmers for census purposes NATIONAL VIEW



et’s be clear from the get-go. Statistics Canada is a national treasure, its data collection illuminates Canadian history as it evolves and the Conservative decision to diminish its ability to gather information is a shortsighted ideological mistake. Much of the agricultural industry depends on Statistics Canada to tell the tale of what is happening as the

world and the sector evolves. So none of this is to denigrate the value of the work Statistics Canada does. It is, however, to suggest that the federal agency should rethink how it collects farm data and in particular, how it defines a farm. Statistics Canada data on the state of farming, the number of farms, farm size, farm income and farm sales distorts the reality of Canadian agriculture today. It defines a farm as an operation producing an agricultural product with the “intention” of selling it. There is no need to actually have sold a cabbage, to have a minimum farm sales income, to even have the intention of trying to make money from the farm. So Canada had more than 205,000

farmers last year. That hasn’t been true for decades. So Canada lost more than 10 percent of its farms between 2006 and 2011. Not a chance. So the average farm size is 778 acres. That is so 1960. This is no academic argument. Federal and provincial agriculture ministers use the data as they design national farm policy, a process that is now underway and that will establish farm policy for the next five years, starting next April 1. Ur ba n m e d i a u s e t h e d at a t o describe what is happening on the farm. My God, more than 23,000 farmers went out of business in five years. And while the federal agency presents copious amounts of detail about the breakdown of segments within

agriculture, the broader averages are what catch the headlines and fuel the political questions about agricultural policy failures. So here is a modest proposal. Statistics Canada should create a definition of a “farm,” perhaps in collaboration with Agriculture Canada. Someone living on an acreage as a want-to-be farmer with a fantasy of selling tomatoes in the local farmers’ market should not qualify as a farmer. While it is politically charged and would take years of painful political and statistical debate, Statistics Canada should try to come up with a way to identify farmers who hope to make a living from growing food and differentiate them from someone who wants the lifestyle and wants to

tap into the spirit of Grandpa and his pre-mechanized farm. Agriculture Canada should insist that its sister government agency find a way to determine how many serious commercial farmers there are so that agricultural and social policy do not become interchangeable. Years ago, a federal deputy agriculture minister with a cattle herd wrote off losses on the farm against his government salary because he saw himself as a farmer with Ottawa as offfarm income. A federal court ruled that to be a ludicrous idea. Likewise, Statistics Canada should not allow want-to-be farmers to selfidentify and thereby skew valuable, informative statistics that are the lifeblood of the industry.





Farmers will pay


More contracts, but market info still lacking EDITORIAL NOTEBOOK

more to ship their grain this year FILE PHOTO



Should farmers pay for railways’ pensions? W BY DOUG FALLER


he Canadian Transportation Agency recently announced that prairie grain farmers will pay 9.5 percent more to ship their grain. Based on the 2011 total freight bill under the revenue cap of $952 million, a 9.5 percent increase means another $90 million straight out of the pockets of prairie farmers. It means another $2.92 per tonne in freight, or about $3 per seeded acre. Most of the increase has little to do with the actual costs of hauling grain. In fact, the price index for the actual costs of hauling grain went up by only 1.6 percent. The remainder, 7.9 percent, is a result of two accounting methodology changes to how CTA calculates the railways’ corporate costs. According to the CTA website, one of the changes is based on recommendations from the railways on calculating the cost of the equity component of the cost of capital. “Cost of capital is defined as an esti-

mate of the total return on net investment that is required by shareholders and debt holders so that debt costs can be paid and equity investors can be provided with an adequate return on investment consistent with the risks assumed for the period under consideration,” the CTA said. The change to the CTA’s cost of equity calculation has been done to ensure that Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway shareholders are provided an adequate return on investment. The Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan has learned that major investment firms in Western Canada have been advising their clients to invest in CN and CPR. When we asked why, the answer was simple: “barrier to entry.” In other words, the railways have a duopoly. They have a captive market in grain and face no meaningful competition. Thus, there is little risk investing in CN and CPR, as the trend in their share values and dividend payments

attest. CN’s share price rose 400 percent from Jan. 1, 2003, to May 1, 2012, while CPR’s share price has increased nearly 250 percent. CN dividends increased 388 percent from 2001 to 2012, while CPR dividends increased 275 percent. The revenue cap for grain has never prevented the railways from meeting their cost of equity. The other accounting change is the way the CTA determines how much the railways receive to cover their pensions. Grain farmers will now pay more for funding CN and CPR pension plans. This is not because of more employees. CN employed about the same number in 2011 as it did in 2002. However, the cost to cover pensions to senior management may have gone up. For example, the chief executive officer of CPR is entitled to a pension at age 65 of $1.122 million. Is it really true that CN and CPR need more money from farmers to fund their pension plans? Net

income after taxes for CN and CP combined in 2011 was $3.027 billion. The net income after tax for two railways was at least 25 percent higher than the net income before tax for all prairie grain farmers combined in 2011, which was a record year for farm net in-come. Who is taking care of grain farmers’ cost of equity or their pensions? Not only has the freight bill been too high for years under the revenue cap, grain farmers are now being asked to pay $3 per tonne more. As APAS continues to call for a full costing review, the need grows. Farmers could understand a 1.6 percent increase in the revenue cap based on a rising price index for actual costs. But an extra 7.9 percent to increase railway profits by another $75 million so that shareholders are happy and $1 million CEO pensions are safe is another matter.

Million dollar farms dominate gross receipts HURSH ON AG



igger farms, fewer farmers — those results from the 2011 Census of Agriculture are hardly surprising. It’s the well-established, long-term trend. However, there’s more to the numbers than meets the eye. According to the census statistics, the average farm size in Saskatchewan has increased to 1,668 acres while Alberta is 1,168 and Manitoba is 1,135. The census has the trend right, but the numbers don’t make sense. Farms of that size are now considered small, not average. The numbers are likely being skewed by people who retain small holdings and like to have

the perks and status of calling themselves farmers. Gross farm receipts show the same thing. There continue to be a lot of small farms. Twenty percent of Canadian farms have gross receipts of less than $10,000. Whether it’s a semi-retired farmer on the Prairies taking a crop share on a quarter or two of land or a young person in Ontario selling a small quantity of vegetables at a farmers’ market, these are not typical of commercial operations. More than 60 percent of census farms have less than $100,000 in gross receipts. This perpetuates the myth of quaint little farms, but it’s just not the reality. At current grain prices, a farm can gross $100,000 with just 250 acres of canola or 500 acres of wheat at average yields. Those farms with gross revenue of less than $100,000 accounted for less than 10 percent of total farm receipts. Large farms grossing more than $1 million a year are relatively few in number, but that’s where most of the country’s production is coming from.

The census shows 9,602 farms grossing $1 million or more. That’s only 4.7 p e rc e n t o f a l l f a r m s, b u t t h e y accounted for 49.1 percent of total gross receipts. A lot is being made of the aging of the farm population, with the 2011 Census of Agriculture marking the first time that the largest age category is producers older than 55 — an amazing 48.3 percent of farm operators. Meanwhile, farm operators younger than 35 accounted for just 8.2 percent of the total. What’s missing from those statistics and what may come out with more analysis is the gross revenue to age correlation. The oldest category of farm operators probably includes a lot of the big, well-established farms as well as semi-retired producers who have relatively small holdings. Not surprisingly, land rental is gradually but steadily becoming more common. Less than 60 percent of farmland is owned by the operator. Back in 1976, it was 70 percent. Statistics Canada makes the point that land rental is a

less capital-intensive means of expanding. As well, investors are buying farmland. Only 19 percent of farms are incorporated, but this is another stat skewed by the large number of relatively small operations. Most farms grossing more than $500,000 a year are incorporated. Even in the $250,000 to $499,999 category, nearly 37 percent of the operations are incorporated. So, where should farm policy be directed? Should farm programs and policies be aimed at the majority of producers grossing less than $100,000 in an attempt to make them more viable? Or should governments look to support the $1 million farms that while relatively few in number are accounting for nearly half of total receipts? And what does the future hold for those of us who fall somewhere between big and small? Kevin Hursh is an agricultural journalist, consultant and farmer. He can be reached by e-mail at

hether farmers were for or against the CWB’s single desk, most agreed on at least one thing: its elimination was going to cause a few bumps on the wheat marketing landscape. A FarmShift survey by Blacksheep Strategy in January showed that 37 percent of farmers were unsure about who would do the best job marketing their grain. That has since fallen to 29 percent in a follow-up April survey, said Blacksheep in a news release. Blacksheep attributes the higher confidence level to more market activity. More than half of the wheat growers who responded to the survey have by now been contacted by at least one company regarding wheat contracts, an improvement over the wasteland that existed a few months ago. Blacksheep also said the new CWB was mentioned by 19 percent of growers as the best company to handle grain marketing, followed by Richardson with 15 percent. Viterra led the pack after the first survey, but of course that has all changed with its pending sale to Glencore. However, the more recent survey also showed that farmers are still unsure about who will provide the best independent marketing information. As Blacksheep said in its analysis, farmers may be at odds about whether an open market is good or bad, but they agree that they need more markets information. It’s pretty telling that a large majority of respondents — 61 percent — said they were not sure who will best provide independent marketing advice. Twenty-two percent mentioned grain companies, followed by small percentages for other marketing organizations. These surveys of 600 prairie wheat growers come with an accuracy rate of plus or minus four per cent with a confidence level of 95 percent. We don’t really have to know that to see that this information is pointing to reality. We’re undergoing a sea change, and growers are being careful: they’re on their own and can’t afford to make mistakes. The April survey shows that farmers are wading into the post-single desk environment with their analysis antennae up, all the way. Furthermore, farmers are clearly looking for strong, up-to-the-minute market information they can trust, such as supply and demand fundamentals, contracts and price signals. Hopefully, they will soon find it and smooth out some of those bumps in the landscape.

PARLIAMENT WOMAN To the Editor: I was happy to see Barry Wilson’s column (WP May 3) about our “Parliament Woman� — Green MP Elizabeth May. I would offer a slight correction however, as Elizabeth is not

considered an independent. She is recognized by the House of Commons as a Green Party MP. Elizabeth May and the Green Party have been working to get rid of a lot of misconceptions and have started attracting interest from that group of Canadians who value independent accomplishment but recognize that we all owe our success to the communities and the environment in which we live. With rights come responsibilities: for our families, for our country, and for our world. The challenge for Green-minded farmers is to find ways to produce our crops while minimizing our ecological footprint. It’s not easy being Green.

DESTROYING CO-OPS To the Editor: The federal government is attacking democracy in Canada. Farmers lost the Wheat Pool a few years ago. Its demise was brought about by legislation that killed the Crow Rate. The single desk Canadian Wheat Board was destroyed by the present federal government. It refused to give farmers a vote, even though existing legislation stated the government must let farmers make major decisions regarding the CWB. According to a recent news release, the federal government is now attacking co-operatives in general. The Tory government seems determined to greatly weaken or destroy the co-operative movement. Farmers are not the only ones under attack. Recent government policy takes away from the 99 percent who receive 67 percent of available income and favours the one percent who receive 33 percent of the world income. It could be said they take from the poor and give to the rich — Robin Hood in reverse. There is no doubt if the present Conservative government has its way, we will revert back to something equivalent to the feudal system. Canada and the world will be dominated and controlled by a few huge multinational corporations. George Hickie, Waldron, Sask.

SUPPLY MANAGEMENT To the Editor: Re: Call for weakening of supply management disregards farm families involved, by Barry Wilson, April 26 WP. I feel the above headline is an unabashed attempt to tug on our heartstrings to support a certain viewpoint. There are families other than dairy farmers that are affected by supply management. There are other farm families who may find trade access to their products restricted by Canada’s insistence on supply management. There are families who work in processing industries who cannot expand their markets and thus their businesses because of the higher cost of raw materials. There are those unemployed people who could be employed as a result of a bigger processing and exporting industry in Canada.  But most importantly of all, there are poor families in Canada who must spend a larger share of their income on food because of supply management. Terry James, Vegreville, Alta.

OPINION SHELTER BELTS NOT REDUNDANT To the Editor: I quote The Western Producer of April 26, “(agriculture minister Gerry) Ritz now says that changes in farming practices have rendered shelter belts redundant.” How can that man say the things he says, never mind do the things he does? He thinks trees are redundant? And then it must follow that so are birds and chipmunks, protection from destructive winds, retention of snow cover, assistance to the water table, beauty, home heating costs. Add to that the people of Indian Head who, after all these years of valuable work, have become redundant. Just like that, the snapping of a finger, the stroke of a pen. It’s done. Where I live there are many “stew-

ards of the land” hell bent on destroying trees (“Just some ol’ poplars”) and destroying sloughs. In the last several months, thousands of birds and other creatures have lost their habitat. If someone considers planting trees, they are more likely to plant a thousand if they are free. Not likely, however, if they have to pay for them. The PFRA (Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration) was a farsighted and valuable program. The dictator of Canada can’t see that. He is gutting this country. I’m no economist but how can the destruction of thousands of jobs help the economy? Those of you who voted Conservative: on your head be it. I don’t believe in the party system. Is it really democratic? Does Ritz care, does (prime minster Stephen) Harper care what they have done to the West and, in this case, for there are many cases, to the town of

Indian Head? When they were trying to get your vote, did they tell you they’d do all this gutting, such as shutting down our tree nursery? I know where the real cutting and gutting should be done. C. D. Pike, Waseca, Sask.

WHO PAYS MATTERS To the Editor: In the April 19 Western Producer (Cereal Research Centre falls to budget cuts), Blair Rutter claims farmers don’t care who pays for grain research. I’m a farmer and I do care who pays for grain research. For thousands of years farmers have freely shared plant breeding advances for public benefit.


Our current system with farmers and government paying for research builds on that tradition. Improved plant breeding benefits everyone and that is why the costs are now shared between the public and producers. We don’t need private companies getting in the way and we don’t need people who would not know a tractor from a fountain pen speaking for farmers. Mr. Rutter’s way would steal that research and give it to private companies so they can sell it back to us. Although too many think otherwise, companies will only act in their own interests and bottom line, not mine. We need more independent organizations and people speaking for farmers, not those who depend on corporate and government largesse. Paul Harmon, Consul, Sask.

Hooked by fishing friend SPIRITUAL VIGNETTES



he 10-year-old cast with both hands to get his big red devil fishing hook into the deep water. I watched him for 10 minutes, then started to fish beside him. “Sure don’t make these hooks like they used to,” he complained as he tried to pull his clunker through the weeds. One retrieve was different from the others. I noticed the line moving parallel to the shore. “I think you’ve got a fish.” “But I never caught a fish before,” he said as he pulled on the line. “You are doing fine. Just keep the tip of the rod in the air, and make sure the line stays tight.” “This would be my first fish ever,” he said. You could feel his growing excitement. The road we were standing on had a rappelling of rocks right along the shore. The rocks would cause problems for an adult standing two feet taller than he was. “Hold the rod tip as high as you can. It’s a biggy. Can I help with the landing?” The big trout landed on shore with a plop when I gave it a boost from the water. Both the kid and I were breathless with excitement. What a tale he had to tell at the dinner table that night. What a memory I’ve enjoyed over the years. It was so much better than if I’d caught the fish myself. Spending time with children can do that to us. Their innocence, their curiosity, their maturity when being coached through a situation open us to visions of what they have to offer as they mature.

Their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.” Joyce Sasse writes for the Canadian Rural Church Network at www.canadian

Producers will help with transfer of pastures Land transfer | Ag minister favours selling land BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Saskatchewan’s agriculture minister is setting up a producer panel to determine what to do with 60 federal pastures the province will become responsible for next year. Bob Bjornerud said five producers will help the ministry find ways to ease the ownership transfer from Ottawa to the province and then to producers or others. Bjornerud favours selling the pastures. “Probably the one positive part of all of this, if there is one, is that they gave us one year of grace and then only five (pastures will be affected) next year,” he said. “They’ll pick those out and we’ll go from there.” The Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association said discussions should start soon, even with no changes to pasture operations this year. “The patrons are the most significant thing we have to deal with, and how they can be made most comfortable in a transition,” said SSGA president Harold Martens. The federal pasture system has been in place since 1937 and many producers with smaller land bases rely on them to have enough grazing land. Bjornerud said keeping the pastures would put a huge burden on the province, which also operates 52 pastures of its own. “I think right now cattle prices have improved somewhat so if there’s ever going to be an opportunity for some-

thing like this to happen … probably now is the best time we’ve had in a long time,” he said. Patrons, producers and rural municipalities have already been making inquiries. Bjornerud said the producer advisory panel might come up with options to allow sales to proceed smoothly. Martens said financing will be a major factor in determining who can buy. Farm Credit Canada and other lenders should help patrons who need the land to maintain their operations, he added. “ There should be a variety of (financing) packages available for them to work through,” he said. Some arrangements could be lease-to-own while others could be traditional loans or co-operatives. Martens said patrons who buy a pasture together need to have protocols and operational procedures in place because they typically rely on a manager and pasture riders. They would have to hire staff and negotiate salaries. “There’s probably a need to set up how they could manage those things on their own,” he said. Martens also raised the issue of land titles. Many of the pastures are land that was abandoned during the 1930s. “It would be like homesteading,” Martens said. He said the provincial ministry should develop one set of basic transfer tools rather than allowing patrons’ groups to each come up with their own.

Clubroot test mandatory to ensure reliable trials

Group urges Ottawa to continue site funding


Dozens of research plots in Western Canada are being tested for clubroot before canola is seeded in an effort to stop the disease from spreading. In February, the Western Canada Canola/Rapeseed Recommending Committee required all 37 of its sites be tested for clubroot. Raymond Gadoua, the recommending committee co-ordinator, said the committee has had guidelines in place for several years to reduce the spread of infection, but thought it was time to make clubroot testing mandatory. “We just decided it was appropriate for us as an organization that runs field trials to test for the presence of clubroot beforehand,” said Gadoua, who works with the Canola Council of Canada in Saskatoon. “This year is the first that has required testing for the presence of clubroot at a research site. It’s a situation very present on the industry’s mind.” None of the soil samples have tested positive for clubroot, he added. Farmers have been coping with the soil borne disease for six years, mainly in central Alberta. Last year it was confirmed in two Cargill disease observation nurseries in north- central Saskatchewan, and this spring clubroot DNA was confirmed in two Manitoba farms. “The initial perception was it was fairly isolated,” said Gadoua. Murray Hartman, Alberta Agriculture’s oilseed specialist, said soil testing for clubroot is now also mandatory on the 30 canola performance trials in Western Canada. Trials grown on clubroot infected land would be worthless because the patchy emergence of canola infected with the disease would make the data unreliable. It’s also important for researchers to know if clubroot is in the soil so that they don’t unknowingly spread it between plots, Hartman said. John Waterer, national agronomy manager for Cargill Canada, said the company conducted soil tests on its clubroot trials locations for a number of years before and after seeding. It was through this testing, and an astute pathologist, that the company discovered clubroot in its canola research plots last year. “It’s a good thing we found it. It’s a good wake-up call to everyone in the industry,” said Waterer. It’s also a reminder to practice good soil sanitation, use clubroot resistant varieties and good crop rotation, he added. Darrel Armstrong, Monsanto Canada’s Canada stewardship lead, said the company recently reviewed its policy. Soil testing is mandatory before using any research site. Discovery of clubroot in Saskatchewan gave the company added incentive to change its policies. It also follows a strict equipment sanitation protocol in high risk areas, especially around Edmonton, he said.


Motherwell Homestead | Budget cuts to Parks Canada will see demonstrations become a self-guided tour BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

People in Abernethy, Sask., are urging the federal government to reconsider budget cuts to the national historic site honouring a former Saskatchewan and federal agriculture minister. Motherwell Homestead will next year become a self-guided site after a $29.2 million budget cut to Parks Canada takes effect. William R. Motherwell was the province’s first agriculture minister and later federal minister in the Liberal government of prime minister

William Lyon MacKenzie King. He homesteaded near Abernethy in 1882 and in 1966 the farm was designated a national historic site. Motherwell Homestead offers agricultural programming that is meant to depict a prairie homestead. Horse-drawn implements show how land was broken and worked. A large garden is planted each year in the backyard of the distinctive stone house and bread is baked in the summer kitchen. Friends of the Motherwell Homestead Inc. board member Donna Wilkes said seeing those demonstrations go will be difficult.

“You can stand there and watch them seed the crop with horses. You can look across the road and see how it’s done today,” said Wilkes. “I think it’s educational and I don’t think that taking that away is going to be better in any way.” Katherine Patterson, superintendent of the Saskatchewan South Field Unit, said the cuts at Motherwell are particularly sad and come at a poor time. A new management plan had just been developed, the Friends group had worked through the fall, winter and spring on a new trail, and the site was featured on a reality show called

Operation Unplugged. Patterson said 32 Parks Canada employees were affected by the budget cuts. Twenty-one jobs were cut and 11 were offered reduced seasons. Of those 32 jobs, 25 are in her unit. And of those, five are at Motherwell and five are at Grasslands National Park. Laureen Marchand, a member of the Friends group at Grasslands, said people in Val Marie, where the park is based, are concerned about job losses. The park is a major employer in the town of about 100.

B.C. growers may benefit from Ontario frost disaster $48 million in fruit crop lost | The shortfall in the east may increase demand and send B.C. fruit prices up BY TERRY EDWARDS FREELANCE WRITER

KELOWNA, B.C. — A devastating spring freeze that destroyed as much as 80 percent of Ontario’s apple crop may benefit British Columbia growers. Fruit trees bloomed early because of warm weather in southwestern Ontario and the Niagara region, but then temperatures plunged to -7 C April 29, damaging or wiping out much of the $60 million apple crop and 20 to 30 percent of Ontario’s $48 million tender fruit crop, which includes peaches, cherries, pears, plums and nectarines. Brian Gilroy, a Georgian Bay area apple grower and chair of Ontario Apple Growers, told the Windsor Star the loss to fruit growers and the economy could easily surpass $100 million. On top of the lost yield, orchard workers and spinoff industries such as juice, packing, storage and farm supplies will also be affected. “This is the worst disaster fruit growers have ever, ever experienced,” orchard owner Keith Wright of Harrow, Ont., told the Star. “We’ve been here for generations and I’ve never heard of this happening before across the province. This is unheard of where all fruit growing areas in basically the Great Lakes area, in Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York State, Ontario, are all basically wiped out.” Joe Sardinha, an apple grower in Summerland, B.C., and past-president of the B.C. Fruit Growers Association, said that while he sympathizes with his eastern Canadian growers, he welcomes a possible hike in prices as a result of the apple shortage that will likely occur this fall. “I think there is every possibility, given the extent of the damage that occurred, that it will have an impact on things,” he said. “Maybe there’s more opportunity for B.C. apples because I think the retailers in Ontario, the Loblaws and the Sobeys and what not, are going to be interested in carrying

B.C. fruit trees are heavy with blooms this spring and growers hope good weather will produce high yields and quality fruit. |


Canadian fruit and B.C., if all things work out well and we continue to have a good bloom and a decent summer, may supply some of that shortfall.” Higher prices would be a welcome

reprieve for B.C. apple growers, who have struggled for the past four years with returns that barely meet or fall short of production costs. “That’s not to say that every grower is losing money,” Sardinha said. “For instance, this year prices are quite reasonable for top-quality fruit. It’s very dependent on the varieties you grow and the quality of fruit you produce because there are growers meeting or exceeding the cost of production if we peg it at 22.5 cents (per pound).” Sardinha said he hopes consumers won’t have to bear the full burden if prices rise because of the shortfall. “Maybe what this thing sets up is we’ll be able to command more of the margin that retailers keep for themselves.” Growers in B.C. have been enjoying ideal growing conditions, and early

indicators signal an above-average crop. A lot of orchards have heavy bloom this year and producers are encouraged to get some of that early spray thinning done and be ready to hand thin. “If we do have these opportunities, there’s nothing worse than not growing the best quality or over cropping your tree,” Sardinha said. “This is, I think, very likely a potential opportunity to see some better returns for this year’s crop if all things line up. But there is still a long way to go.” Sam DiMaria, a long-time Kelowna orchardist, said he is optimistic prices will rise but Washington state, the Okanagan’s biggest competitor, is also enjoying ideal conditions, which could temper any windfall B.C. growers are anticipating.


Washington produces about 10 times as many apples as B.C. and is the largest supplier in North America. “I can tell you right now that in Washington state, they have a perfect bloom season,” Di Maria said. “They have an overwhelming number of flowers on the trees, perfect weather conditions and they are expecting a record crop out of Washington this year barring some unforeseen curveball that Mother Nature can still throw at us. “There should be a benefit for B.C. tree fruits. The demand for fruit should be a little bit better and prices should be a little higher, but I don’t think it’s going to eliminate the competition that we go head-tohead with. I’m sure they’ll still be shipping as much as they can into Western Canada and still be very competitive.”


Census fails to show cattle sector rebounding: CCA president Producers rebuilding herds | The census was taken last May when livestock prices were low and grain prices were up BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Martin Unrau figures the 2011 Census of Agriculture missed the real state of the cattle industry by a year. “I think if the census was this year, the cattle industry story would be different, stronger,” the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association president said. Census day was in May 2011 and last week’s first release of the resulting agricultural snapshot by Statistics Canada showed a livestock sector in decline, far eclipsed by resurgence in the grain and oilseed sector. In 2011, grain and oilseed farms


represented 30 percent of operations, while beef farms were close to 18 percent. Five years earlier, the split had been even. More dramatically, gross farm receipts in 2010 for grain and oilseed

farms were up almost 50 percent from five years earlier to $18.2 billion. Beef receipts declined 25 percent to $7.3 billion. Grain Growers of Canada executive director Richard Phillips said the shift was simply a reflection of commodity prices. “What has happened is that livestock prices were struggling and grain prices are up,” he said. “Farmers say, ‘show me the money,’ and they go where the money is.” Statistics Canada said part of the reason for the decline is that Canadian consumer demand for beef has fallen. Per capita consumption of beef has fallen 5.1 percent since 2006.

However, Unrau said the industry has been turning around. “I think when the census was done, we were at a point where a lot of older producers had not been able to leave the industry because of losses after BSE, and they had reduced their herds,” he said. “ I t h i n k n ow w e a re s e e i n g a rebuilding of the herd. Heifer retention is up and prices certainly are better.” He said the most important struggle facing the industry now is the retention of infrastructure, including slaughter capacity in packing plants. “A real issue is keeping that infra-

structure in place while we rebuild,” he said. “Do we have enough cattle to sustain the capacity we have and will it be there when we have larger herds and need capacity?” The census also showed the results of hog industry turmoil during years of financial losses and a government program to buy out producers who wanted to leave the industry. The value of hog sales plummeted 33 percent to $6.2 billion between 2005 and 2010. The number of pigs in the national herd fell almost 16 percent to slightly less than 13 million. Ontario saw the largest decline in its hog industry since the last census.






Alberta’s rural population grows

Alberta had the second largest growth in rural and small town (RST) population from 2006 to 2011 among all Canadian provinces — Manitoba was first, experiencing a 4.7 percent increase in rural population growth. Saskatchewan also saw a boost to its rural areas, showing a 3.7 percent growth between the two census years.


Alberta’s rural population grew faster than the national average between 2006-11, according to Statistics Canada. It also had a larger percentage of rural residents than Canada as a whole. The number of Alberta rural residents rose by 4.1 percent in the fiveyear census period. As well, they made up 19.4 percent of the provincial population. By comparison, Canada’s rural population growth rate was 1.7 percent and rural residents made up 18.1 percent of the rural population. Alberta Agriculture’s rural development division recently crunched the numbers after the 2011 census data was released. Project co-ordinator Patricia Macklin said rural is defined in the census as areas outside metropolitan areas or cities of more than 10,000 people, from which less than half the population commutes to cities for work. It includes residents of towns and villages as well as municipal districts and counties. In 2011, 80.6 percent of Alberta’s population was urban and 19.4 percent rural, statistics show. Rural areas strongly influenced by cities showed stronger growth. “Because they’re close enough to have that economic linkage, you tend to have more growth there,” said Macklin. Urban growth in Alberta was almost twice that of Canadian urban growth during the census period, she added. In actual numbers, 707,646 people lived in rural and small town Alberta compared to 679,861 in 2006. However, Alberta was second to Manitoba in terms of rural growth for

DEFINING POPULATIONS: These are definitions used by Statistics Canada to sort and categorize populations based on size and proximity to urban centres: RST: Rural and small town Any rural community that has a population of fewer than 10,000 and where less than 50 percent of its working citizens commute to a CMA or CA.


all provinces. Manitoba saw a growth rate of 4.7 percent between 2006 and 2011. Saskatchewan was third at 3.7 percent, followed by Quebec at 2.7. Rural populations declined over the census period in Newfoundland Labrador (-2.7), Prince Edward Island (-1.9), Nova Scotia (-1.7) and New Brunswick (-0.8). The fastest growing census division in Alberta was Fort McMurray, heart of the oilsands industry, at 27.2 percent. The other three fastest growing areas in the province were Calgary (12.9 percent), Edmonton (11.8) and Grande Prairie (11.1). Among all census divisions, only Hanna had a population decline, at

-4.9 percent. “I don’t think it was surprise,” Macklin said of the numbers. “It’s like any statistics, you can sort of hide the specific with the general. Certainly there are individual towns and areas that are seeing population loss that are struggling with that. But overall we are growing.” In terms of economic regions, Wood Buffalo-Cold Lake showed fastest growth in the province at 15.8 percent. It’s the region that surrounds Fort McMurray. The lowest rate of growth was seen in the economic regions of CamroseDrumheller (4.4) and Banff-JasperRocky Mountain House (4.2).

New minister eager to learn about ag issues Premier Alison Redford says she plans to give agribusiness a higher profile BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Alberta’s new agriculture minister will dig deep into his rural roots to help him with his new job. Verlyn Olson lives on the same land his grandparents homesteaded, near Armena. His parents, uncles, aunts and cousins were farmers and his wife is a “farm girl.” “I’ve often described myself as a person who doesn’t know farming, but I know farmers,” said Olson after being sworn in as Alberta’s 26th agriculture minister May 8. The former justice minister said he was just as surprised as everyone else when premier Alison Redford named him named agriculture minister. “Intellectually, I knew it was a possibility, but I hadn’t really contemplated agriculture,” said Olson, who was first elected to government in 2008. “Nobody would be surprised to hear me say, ‘I am not a farmer.’ But I’ve grown up close to farmers. I have spent my whole life basically, except for a few years of university, in rural Alberta. I spent 30 years practicing in a rural setting with many, many of my clients being farmers. My family roots are all in agriculture on all sides of the family,” said Olson, who practiced law in Camrose.

“I’ve been around the agricultural life, although I claim no expertise, certainly not a subject matter expert.” Olson said his first goal is to soak up as much information as he can about the agricultural portfolio and issues facing rural Alberta. “I want to stress the department is agriculture and rural development and I also take the rural development part very seriously,” he said. “My number one goal is to just read as much as I can and get lots of briefings from my department and get up to speed with issues we are facing in the near term.” Olson has also started to accept invitations from groups who want to talk to the new agriculture minister. One of his first official duties will be attending convocation of the first class of veterinary graduates at the University of Calgary. Olson said his mandate letter from the premier will spell out in more detail what she is looking for from the agricultural ministry.

Redford said she wants to raise the profile of agribusiness inside and outside the province. Former agricultural minister Evan Berger, defeated in the April election, had a strong focus on promoting youth in agriculture, even naming a youth advisory council to engage young people in agriculture. Olson said he supports a number of Berger’s initiatives, including the focus on youth, and will continue with those projects. The Progressive Conservatives won the Alberta election by a majority, but they lost many seats in southern and rural areas to the Wildrose party, leaving a wide swath of the province without government representation. Olson said rural and southern Albertans, who elected Wildrose members, could expect to have the same access to the agriculture minister as anyone else. “They can certainly expect to have my ear and can certainly expect to see me out and about. I want to be as accessible as I can be. I think the expectation of the premier, as well, is that I be very available in the south and everywhere else in the province.” Rural Albertans punished the Conservative government over changes to land use and property rights bills by voting Wildrose. Olson said the

They can certainly expect to have my ear and can certainly expect to see me out and about. I want to be as accessible as I can be. I think the expectation of the premier, as well, is that I be very available in the south and everywhere else in the province. VERLYN OLSON ALBERTA AGRICULTURE MINISTER

government has made changes to property rights legislation bills, and the premier has promised a more “consultative” approach to government. “You can expect to see and hear a lot more discussion about those issues.” Roger Epp, professor of political science at the University of Alberta, said Olson was a strong justice minister and made a good impression in the short time he was in cabinet. “He will be a good minister,” said Epp, former dean of the U of A’s Augustana campus in Camrose. Epp said he doesn’t know if agriculture ministers need to be from a farm, but added they must be a “good listener and a good thinker.” What Olson may bring to the portfolio is a different way of thinking about food that isn’t just rural. “I think if agriculture is going to be a portfolio in Western Canada, it has to

be more than just, ‘how can we crank up more stuff for export,’ ” said Epp. “There is some real potential of how to get young people into agriculture and you’re not going to do it in a really capital intensive way because they don’t have a shot at it, but there are lots of people who want to farm on some scale and I think there is an opportunity for really progressive public policy that would try to figure out how to do that.” Lynn Jacobson, president of Wild Rose Agricultural Producers, said he doesn’t know much about the new minister and is “somewhat surprised” at the choice of a minister with limited agricultural knowledge. “I don’t know how much ag involvement he’s had. He’ll be in a steep learning curve for sure. He’ll be really relying on his staff,” said Jacobson. John Knapp will remain as deputy agriculture minister.

Redford’s Conservative gov’t differs from recent past Meet the new boss | Not the same as the old boss BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Alberta elected another majority Progressive Conservative government last month, but it isn’t more of the same, says political scientist Harold Jansen. The new government of premier Alison Redford is more urban, more centre-right and more co-operative in its approach, Jansen told the Southern Alberta Council of Public Affairs May 10. Much of rural Alberta, particularly in the south, has been represented by the PCs since 1975. Now it is largely represented by Wildrose Alliance candidates, which has implications for rural and agricultural issues, said Jansen. “I think we’re going to see the representation perhaps raised more on the floor of the legislature because that’s the primary forum that opposition MLAs have to communicate,� he said in an interview. “In some ways, (agriculture) might receive more public attention than it has in the past, but the tradeoff is you don’t have the kind of inside influence that it had in the past.� Jansen, who works at the University of Lethbridge, put the rural shift to Wildrose squarely on the shoulders of discontent over land use bills and worries about property rights. “These issues resonated in a huge way in southern Alberta. I can’t think of any other explanation why the rural south voted the way it did.� In his speech, Jansen said Conservative gains in Edmonton and Calgary came at the expense of the Liberal party. Redford’s promises to restore education funding and end poverty made it difficult for the Liberals to distinguish themselves from their PC rivals. “Alison Redford campaigned like a small ‘l’ Conservative,� said Jansen. “What the Conservatives lost to the Wildrose, they gained from the Liberals.� In rural areas, a scarcity of Liberals prevented the Conservatives from gaining support from that quarter, so the Wildrose took the lead. Now that the government has moved toward the political centre — although Jansen admitted that might have a different meaning in conservative Alberta — it will be hard to hold that position. Centrist parties can be squeezed from both directions and there are few successful long-term centrist parties. Jansen said he disagreed with pundits who suggested the Wildrose Alliance would have a better relationship with the federal government of prime minister Stephen Harper. “I actually think he’s very comfortable with Alison Redford because she’s someone he can work with. Premier Redford campaigned very much on a more co-operative kind of approach, and I expect to see that.� He said the Conservatives stumbled early during the election campaign,

giving an early lead to the Wildrose. Public outrage over monthly payments to MLAs who were on a committee that hadn’t met in almost three years fueled the Wildrose platform of greater fiscal responsibility. As well, he said the PCs hadn’t had to seriously campaign since 1993, when the Liberals under Lawrence Decore ran against Ralph Klein, who had replaced Don Getty as leader.

In subsequent elections, Klein was an indifferent campaigner and Ed Stelmach was also uncomfortable with it, said Jansen. Numerous pre-election polls indicated the Wildrose would win, but instead it lost because of last minute doubters, a large number of undecided voters that eventually voted PC and worries about the province’s economic future.

Alison Redford might be leader of the familiar Alberta Progressive Conservative party, but that doesn’t mean the same old politics are in play in Alberta. | FILE PHOTO

Farmers must be part of any national conservation plan but they have to be compensated if it is to work, farm leaders have told a parliamentary committee. The House of Commons environment committee has been holding hearings on the possibility of creating a national conservation plan, and on May 1 committee members heard a farm perspective.

Canadian Federation of Agriculture president Ron Bonnett said land stewardship must be part of any plan, but farmers have to see the money before they will get involved. “There would be incentives to make things happen,” he said. “One of the difficulties is making people understand that farmers have this land base that is very expensive and if you are going to set aside land for some conservation purposes, there may be costs incurred with that.” If farm conservation practices benefit society, “there has to be some way of sharing some of those costs.” Doug Chorney, president of Manitoba’s Keystone Agricultural Producers, was more blunt. He said farmers need incentives to practice conservation farming. “By this I mean compensation,” he said. “An NCP (national conservation program) must ensure that this principle of society paying for ecological benefits is a pillar of its program development.” He promoted an ecological goods and services policy that puts a value on farm programs and practices that improve the environment to the benefit of society. Both farm leaders praised the Environmental Farm Plan program and insisted government funding should continue so that it can be part of any national program. Bonnett said 30 percent of Canadian farms now have an EFP, and Chorney said the figure is much higher in Manitoba. “I do want to stress that goals that bring together environmental successes and farm successes need to be given priority in this process,” said Chorney. Winnipeg Conservative MP Lawrence Toet wondered how conservation practices could help farm profitability. Bonnett offered a personal example of how the Environmental Farm Plan program helped his own farm. He used EFP money on his northern Ontario cow-calf operation to fence waterways to keep the cattle away. It improved the habitat for birds and fish. Then he used some of the money to pump water from the streams to pasture watering spots. “What we found then was that productivity of livestock increased because they did not have to go down into the water bodies to get water.” Some EFP money was also used to start a rotating pasture system with fields at different stages of growth, which meant cattle always have access to grass at its most nutritious stage. “We’re getting more productivity out of the cattle because they are on very nutritious pastures as they go through the cycle,” said Bonnett. He said financial incentives were key to that change in management practice because some fields had to be pulled out of production to stagger the growth. “You need the incentive program to help with the capital cost upfront to end up getting that win-win situation,” Bonnett said. “Depending on where you are, that land you are pulling out of production could be fairly high-valued land as well.”

Aiding rural dementia patients

There are many types of dementia, but broadly speaking, symptoms typically include loss of short- and long-term memory, judgment and reasoning, changes in mood and behaviour and changes in the ability to communicate.

Rural and Remote Memory Clinic | Fewer medical visits needed to get diagnosis, care

» Alzheimer’s disease is the most

common form of dementia at approximately 63 percent. It is a progressive, degenerative and fatal brain disease in which cellto-cell connections in the brain are lost. It is not a normal part of aging. Symptoms of Alzheimer’s include: • memory loss that affects day-today functioning • difficulty performing familiar tasks • problems with language • disorientation of time and place, poor or decreased judgment • problems with abstract thinking, misplacing things (often in inappropriate places) • changes in mood and behaviour, • changes in personality and loss of initiative


A unique clinic in Saskatoon is helping rural residents avoid multiple trips to specialists and the potential yearlong wait for a dementia diagnosis. The Rural and Remote Memory Clinic housed at the Canadian Centre for Health and Safety in Agriculture at the University of Saskatchewan can provide a diagnosis in a single day. Family physicians refer patients who are displaying dementia symptoms. They then spend a day at the clinic to be assessed by a team that includes a neurologist, neuropsychologist, geriatrician and physical therapist. At the end of the day, the patient and family meet with the specialists to discuss the diagnosis and a plan for care. Debra Morgan, chair of rural health delivery at the CCHSA, said the innovative facility then takes it one step further. They follow up by telehealth, or two-way video conferencing usually from the local hospital or medical office, which eliminates the costly and lengthy trips back to the city. “On average, we’ve been monitoring this in our clinic, we’re saving patients and their families over 400 kilometres per round trip by going to their telehealth in their home community versus coming all the way to Saskatoon for a followup appointment,” said Morgan. She said the specialists like to monitor those patients who have started taking anti-dementia medication to ensure the dose is correct. The family physician can also participate to ensure the care plan is followed. The only problem is the clinic is open just one day per week and has accumulated a long waiting list. Morgan said the team can devote only one day to diagnosis with its current resources. The clinic was launched in 2004 as a demonstration project under a five-year research grant. When

» CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE They see less common vascular, frontotemporal and Lewy body dementias. “People are really wanting to know what’s going on,” Morgan said. “They can tell that something’s not right, but until they get a diagnosis, it’s very hard to move forward both emotionally and figuring out what to do on a more practical level.” A diagnosis makes it possible to access home care and other support. For example, the clinic is part of the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan’s First Link program. With the patient’s permission, the clinic refers the patient to the society, which then follows up with information. Chief executive officer Joanne Bracken said the society has a network of support groups across the province, including the one it is operating by telehealth in partnership with the rural and remote memory clinic. “It’s specifically for those caring for someone with frontotemporal dementia,” Bracken said. “Their needs are very different and unique from people who traditionally attend our support groups.” This is because frontotemporal dementia is typically diagnosed in younger people — in their 40s and 50s. These people may still be working or have been let go from their jobs because of the undiagnosed dementia and have no access to disability programs. There could be young children at home, and there is pressure on a spouse to make up for lost income. Bracken said these people are often misdiagnosed with mental illness, but don’t respond to that treatment. “If it’s hard to get a diagnosis for Alzheimer’s, it’s extremely difficult to get one for frontotemporal dementia,” she said. “Frontotemporal dementia affects reasoning and judgment and so people get very fixated on certain things — sweets, repetitive motions,” Bracken said. “Lots of times, there’s a real loss of sexual inhibitions. Sometime people find that difficult to talk about in a group where there’s a lot of elderly caregivers.” Because this type of dementia is less common, the caregivers are more spread out and telehealth allows them to connect with others in similar situations. Morgan said there is still a lack of awareness about symptoms, particularly for the more complex dementias, and people aren’t getting a diagnosis early enough. She said health-care providers have to be ready for the rising tide of new patients. “One clinic is not going to be able to cope.” WATCH FOR MORE INFORMATION ON DEMENTIA IN NEXT WEEK’S FARM LIVING SECTION



ife is short so don’t waste any precious time. I appreciate the bright evening sky, the warmer temperatures and new growth. We will soon open our cottages or plan summer vacations.

The 6 foot, 4 inch, left-handed pitcher has already set his future. After graduation next month, he’s heading for New Westminster, B.C., where he will play on the Douglas Royals ball team for the local college. His coach, a former scout for the Milwaukee Brewers, helped him make those connections. Harpestad will take courses in sports science for the next two years. Depending on how his arm holds out and whether the scouts like him, he could then be headed for American professional ball. When at home, he helps on the family’s three section grain and cattle farm, including tending to his own cattle. He credits the farm with building his arm strength because of hauling bales and handling cattle. Harpestad started playing ball when he was seven after hearing his dad talk about how much fun it was. From the local team, he moved up to

Jonathan Harpestad, who will graduate from an Okotoks, Alta., baseball sports academy in June, will next play ball in New Westminster, B.C. | play for Saskatchewan teams in Kindersley, Biggar and Saskatoon. A teammate was interested in the Okotoks program so Harpestad and his parents also went to take a look. “When he saw the facilities, his eyes lit up,” said Heidi, who was a little reluctant. “I didn’t want him to go — the mommy thing.” Okotoks has turned its recreation centre into an indoor baseball field with a turf infield and batting cages. After class, the baseball students

learn skills, take advice from the coaches and work out. They also play a lot of games around Alberta, as many as 250. Harpestad said one of the adjustments he had to make was living in a bigger place. Eston has 1,500 people. Another challenge was his first year when his arm gave out. “I got quite discouraged,” said Harpestad, whose arm improved after two months of physiotherapy. He called it another life lesson about the payback from the amount

of work a person is willing to invest. Harpestad conceded working at his baseball skill and moving away from home overshadowed his teenaged years. “One day you have to grow up so it may as well be sooner,” he said. The Harpestads, who often travel to watch him play, will attend his games in Great Falls, Mont., in June and Spokane, Wash., in July. They also watch his games on the internet. There are no baseball schools in Saskatchewan and the family was

reluctant to see him go to the United States. Some U.S. schools lure kids with the promise of athletic scholarships but may bench 15 out of 40 they bring in. The student then loses the scholarship offer for lack of playing time and can be left paying for the tuition, which can be as high as $40,000 for a year. The Okotoks academy offers a strong academic program and costs them a more affordable $12,000 a year.


Mistresses of the Modern recognizes women’s contributions Exhibition highlights contributions | Women in charge and women with authority recognized BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Seven women who have contributed to Alberta were recognized as part of the exhibition, Mistresses of the Modern, showing at the Alberta Gallery of Art in Edmonton until June 3. “We were doing this exhibition about female artists so we decided why not showcase these stories,” said Sandra Huculak of ATB Financial, who chaired the selection committee. The exhibition and community awards recognized women as mistresses under the old definition of someone with authority or a woman in charge. The one-time event recognized women in three categories: starting over, community and pioneering spirit. Nominations were accepted from the public and a judging committee selected seven winners, who were announced in April. The featured artists were females born before 1918. All were well known for their work that went beyond the traditional landscapes favoured by many Canadian artists at the time. Curator Mary-Beth Laviolette put



together the exhibition to recognize women who were among the first generation of artists to live and work in Alberta and celebrate female trailblazers in the art community. “Early Alberta’s story has been primarily told in terms of what the men were up to and that often related to instructors in the country,” said Laviolette. “The contributions women made to modernism in the province hasn’t been well documented,” she said. Many were considered hobbyists rather than serious, professional artists because being a professional implied being a male, she said. However, these women sold work, belonged to national artist societies and entered shows across the country where they received acclaim. Part of Laviolette.’s research included finding their work because little is available in public collections. Community award winners: • Shelley Boston of Ponoka spearheaded a fundraising campaign to bring much-needed supplies and hope to the people of Slave Lake after a fire. • Ilona Boyce of Calgary founded the

Women balance jobs on farm


Evolving roles | Resourcefulness, planning needed BY ANNE COTE FREELANCE WRITER

MSRP $189.95

ASHERN, Man. — Like many women on the farm, Caron Clarke has found that motherhood and farming are challenging, but they also provide a wealth of satisfaction. The isolation forces parents to be resourceful. Parental leave isn’t an option and getting youngsters to doctors and dentists can require creative planning. Clarke and her husband, Tim, own the T-Bar Ranch near Ashern in central Manitoba. It’s cattle country with thousands of acres of native grasses and some rocky soil suitable for growing tame hay. Caron said it’s not grain land. That’s where Clarke raised her three children Jeff, 25, Amanda, 23, and Joel, 21. She smiled when she stopped to relate how the kids would run along the bale piles, laughing and playing tag with the dogs, close to where the cows were calving. “I was comfortable with the children having the freedom of the farm. I had grown up here that way,” Clarke said. “The dangers on the farm were obvious to them,” she said, noting they knew not to go through the fences into the pastures with the cattle. “I can remember Jeff and Amanda sleeping on the little bean bag chair in the baler tractor while I was baling.” Clarke recalled Jeff, at age 12, coming out on the ATV to check up on her.

One day, she’d forgotten to bring a lunch, so Jeff went back home, fried up a pound of ground beef and promptly delivered it to her, along with a fork. The availability of day care wasn’t an issue for her. “While my mum was alive, she did a lot of babysitting for us, especially when there was heavy work to do around the cattle,” she said. The rest of the time, the kids followed Clarke around the farm as she worked, even when she and Tim were out mending fences. “They learned to hammer and nail and staple at a really young age,” she said. Her mother’s role on the farm was different from hers. Clarke said she’s been a farmer from the beginning, unlike her mom, Joyce Townsend, who was more of a farm wife than a farmer. Her mother grew a garden and helped clean stalls in the pig barn, but most of her time was spent caring for family. “When it came to the hay field, she brought the lunch, she didn’t drive the equipment,” Clarke said. The Clarke ranch is a 15 minute drive from town, so Clarke has never felt far from needed services. Amanda recently launched her career as a nurse and, like other women of her generation, her role as a mother and/or a farm wife will likely be different from both her mother’s and grandmother’s.

Organic farm pays back in more ways than cash Lifestyle switch | Religion, concern for animal welfare, lead couple to a life on the farm BY RON FRIESEN FREELANCE WRITER

REINLAND, Man. — Ask Conrad Zacharias why he’s an organic dairy farmer and he’ll say the reasons run much deeper than organic. His passion for animal welfare tells him cows were meant to graze on pasture, not to stand on cement in a barn all day. For that reason, his cows go outdoors every day, weather permitting. Organic certification, which requires outdoor grazing, is only a means to an end. If he weren’t organic, he’d still farm the same way he does now, said Conrad. “It just makes sense to me that we should manage animals according to their natural instincts,” he said. “How we farm is not directly tied to organic certification. If some day it doesn’t work to maintain this status, we’ll still continue to graze.” There’s another reason why Conrad feels the way he does about raising livestock: his religious faith. “I believe God created animals to glorify Him,” he said. Conrad admits he didn’t always feel that way. He never expected to be an agricultural producer. Neither did his wife Val, a trained physiotherapist, who vowed while growing up on a rural acreage that she would never wed a farmer. After marrying in 1992, Conrad and Val felt called to serve the church through overseas mission work. At one point, they travelled through West Africa, trying to discern where their call might lead them. Eventually, they realized they were being called to a third generation family dairy farm south of Winkler, Man., in the small Mennonite village where Conrad had grown up.

Conrad, 43, and Val, 41 took over the farm after his parents moved to town in 1996. The farm received organic certification in 2008. Today, they have 40 dairy cows on 350 acres, of which 50 acres are still in transition. In addition to the dairy, their four children raise pastured poultry and free range pigs. Daughter Davy, 14, manages 75 hybrid layer hens. Jude, 11, raises straw-based pigs with the help of his brothers Levi, 9, and Cade, 7. The farm is a magnet for other children. Every Wednesday, Conrad hosts a small group of students from the local school who have trouble fitting into a classroom setting. Besides helping to care for the livestock, they also learn about animal physiology and get a take-home assignment. It’s meaningful homework that gives the kids a feeling of self-worth, said Conrad. That’s an example of their ministry: using the resources of their farm to contribute to the community. Conrad also speaks frequently to consumer, organic and local food groups about animal welfare and sustainable food production. The family hosts farm tours to show how consumer choices can be tied to the way food is produced, he said. Conrad and Val admit people sometimes question why they limit themselves to a small dairy farm. “People say you could do so much more. Why do you settle for farming?” said Val. “We say, we totally do not see it as settling at all. This is definitely where we’re supposed to be.” Although the market for organic milk in Manitoba is stable, it is relatively small. The Zacharias family receives a 25

But only 20 percent of the milk they produce actually ends up with the organic label on independent grocery store shelves because of limited

demand. The rest goes into the conventional market with no premium. “But that’s not the end-all for us,” said Val. “We would still farm very similarly

if there was no organic label. “It’s a farm management and lifestyle switch that we’ve seen good things from. It’s not just something that’s tied to the financial payback from an organic product.”




Water efficient crops help reduce virtual water exports

Water conservation can help ensure pristine locations like this remain so for years to come. | FILE PHOTO


Investment leads to water efficiency Innovative programs | Countries look for ways to reduce consumption while increasing production STORIES BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Six countries produce 50 percent of the world’s exported food so if there is a crop failure in a key producing country, the impacts can be far reaching. “If something happens climatically in one of these six countries, it has global impact,” said Hans Schrierer of the University of British Columbia’s faculty of land and food systems. Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Russia, Canada and the United States feed the world, while India and China look for ways to import food and conserve their water. China is improving its corn and wheat production because these crops are not as water intensive. At the same time, it is importing more soybeans, cotton, beef, pork and chicken. “This is a very favourable policy for them. This way they can use the saved water for industrial purposes,” he said at a May 8-10 conference in Calgary called Water in a World of Seven Billion. Climate change will make the Middle East hotter and drier, so those countries will import more food to save water. Every country has different require-

ments for moisture depending on climate, soil and precipitation. Schrierer proposes countries best suited for growing certain crops should do so to make the best use of natural resources. Water conservation makes economic sense in Alberta, said Roger Hohm, head of the province’s irrigation secretariat within Alberta Agriculture. “Without doing it on purpose, we have seen some tremendous savings in water because of dollars,” he said. “If you invest the dollars, there (are) opportunities there to make some huge water savings.” He said in 1965, an irrigation farmer had to divert 1,000 millimetres of water to sprinkle 300 mm on a crop. Today he can divert 380 mm to deliver 300 mm. Most efficiency gains were spurred by larger farms, less available labour to move equipment and higher energy costs to run the system. The province and farmers also invested heavily in improvements to reduce seepage, measure use and prevent evaporation. There are about 8,000 kilometres of infrastructure, and about half is in pipelines. And farmers are opting for more expansion. In the last five years, nine of the 13 farmer controlled districts

have voted to expand to another 170,000 acres, said Hohm. Ann Mills, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s under secretary for natural resources and environment, said that country lost 15 percent of its agricultural land between 1982 and 2007, mostly to urbanization. “We have to grow more food on less land for more people,” she said. To help ease the problem, the U.S. is trying to identify landscape initiatives on natural resources to protect soil and water. The federal government provided the Bay Delta Initiative in California with $5.3 billion for conservation programs in five water districts to prevent spillage by lining irrigation canals, installing pipelines and improving irrigation systems. The Northern Everglades project in Florida allowed 200 million acres to be bought for conservation easements to keep ranches, sugar cane farms and orange groves in operation. Projects were also put in place to replicate more historic water flows. Across the country, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas and Wyoming are all involved in projects, which have saved 17 billion gallons of water.

WATER CONSERVATION TIPS The average Canadian uses 125,000 litres of water per person per year, while the average European uses 73,000 litres. Here are ways to save water. • Tighten those taps. Check pipes, taps and toilets for leaks. You can save as much as 50 litres of water a day by fixing a dripping tap. • Install water-saving devices on faucets and toilets. • Turn water off while washing dishes instead of letting it run continuously. • Adjust sprinklers so only the lawn is watered, not the road or nearby outbuildings. • Adjust lawn mowers to a higher setting. A taller lawn shades roots and holds soil moisture better. • For cold drinks, keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap. • For the garden, install a microirrigation system, which comes with tubing, hardware and multiple spray heads to create a customized watering system.

Canada is the third largest virtual water exporter in the world. While part of the economy favours high volumes of agricultural exports, tremendous amounts of water embedded in food are shipped out of the country at the same time, said Hans Schrierer of the University of British Columbia’s faculty of land and food systems. His research focuses on watershed management, land-water interactions, soil and water. He said Canada has increased its virtual water exports from 54 billion cubic metres in 2000 to 61 billion cubic metres in 2008 by growing and exporting commodities that require considerable water to produce. Domestic requirements are nine billion cubic metres. “We should focus on growing water efficient crops with high value and low environmental impact,” he told the Water in a World of Seven Billion conference in Calgary May 8-10. “We are the third largest water exporter and the fifth largest water footprint in the world.” Schrierer said the livestock industry is a big water guzzler. “Beef production is the most water intensive way of producing food.” He estimates 5,000 litres of water are needed to maintain the average North American diet on a daily basis. Most staple crops require 1,000 litres of water per kilogram produced, but meat production requires twice to seven times more, he said. About 16,000 litres of water are required to produce one kilogram of beef, while 5,000 litres produce one kg of pork and chicken needs 3,500 litres per kg of meat. “The best strategy is to reduce beef production for both domestic and export consumption because it will save us a huge amount of water, which we can use for something else,” he said. “It will reduce eutrophication. It will produce less greenhouse gas and it will improve your health.” Producers should consider growing water efficient crops best suited to the local environment, he said. For example, British Columbia’s Okanagan basin is the driest watershed in Canada. Schrierer was part of a UBC study that showed forage was the largest crop grown in the region. It takes a lot of water but has low value. “Grapes are probably the best and most water efficient crop to grow,” he said. “If you look at the value of the water, grapes are probably the best thing to do in this part of the world.” As well, he said, because Alberta has seen its beef industry move heavily to large operations and feedlots during the last 30 years, excess manure and large amounts of nitrogen and phosphorous are overloading soils and running into water supplies. Manitoba’s pork industry has been going through similar changes. As a result, greenhouse gases are released from manure and when animals pass gas. “The argument I am trying to make is the price of exported meat does not account for the environmental degradation,” he said.

Riders seek treasures in Alberta countryside Scenic hunt | Geocaching in Alberta’s Rocky Mountains gives horseback riders a chance to explore the wilderness BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Those so inclined can now grab their horse and GPS devices and head to the mountains for an equine geocaching race. The Amazing Backcountry Race encourages horseback riders to ride into the mountains and enjoy Alberta’s back country, said race organizer Brenda Murdock. Between June 25 and Sept 5, riders will be directed to 16 geocache locations between the Willmore Wilderness Park and Kananaskis country in Alberta’s Rocky Mountains. The race is designed to get people into the mountains for a day ride or overnight, said Murdock, a horse trainer and back country guide. “I want to promote Alberta and I want to promote people getting out and doing things with their horse and discovering there are things to do with their horses,” said Murdock,

who lives on a ranch west of Calgary. Murdock said she came up with the idea after watching television’s Amazing Race and observing a horse-back type scavenger hunt at the Wild

Deuce Retreats and Outfitting Mountain Horse competition in Kingman, Alta., last fall. The race isn’t designed to challenge rider’s skills, but as an excuse

to go for a ride. Geocaching is like hide and seek. Someone hides a cache and posts the GPS co-ordinates for others to find. Murdock said the clues won’t be

hidden in hard to access parts of the mountains, but rather along trails and historic sites like the Indian Graves west of Longview. “I want to try to educate people about the back country and what is going on with the land,” she said. Racers need to register on the Amazing Backcountry Race website and find sponsors to help raise money for Alberta’s air ambulance service. “Everyone can use this service. Everywhere you go, you either know someone who has used the service or someone who has a connection to it,” she said. Scott Phillips, who is also organizing the race, said he has been in the mountains three times when STARS were called to airlift the people to hospital. “I don’t want to scare you by talking about accidents, but it sure is comforting to know that STARS has your back in the backcountry,” wrote Phillips in a blog.


Canada’s competitiveness in food marketplace questioned BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Canada’s agriculture and food sector is losing competitive ground in the world, the Senate agriculture committee has heard. Market share is declining even as the world demand for food is rising. Economists from the Guelphbased George Morris Centre argued May 8 that the evidence of decline is everywhere. Investment in the industry lags other countries, export market share is falling, Canadian food and agriculture regulations are “slow and sloppy” and Canadian agriculture policy is too oriented to supporting small, inefficient or import sensitive sectors. “In our view, the most important thing to do in public policy is to change the emphasis for agri-food from what has been mostly a kind of protect-and-preserve approach over the last 50 years to one that has the mission to create a progressive busi-

ness environment that fosters innovation,” GMC senior fellow Larry Martin told senators. With colleague Kate Stiefelmeyer, he wrote a report published last year by the Ottawa-based MacdonaldLaurier Institute that was damning. The world wants more food and prices are rising, they wrote in the report, entitled Sector in Decline or Industry of the Future? The Choice is Ours. “Canada is well positioned with its resource base, infrastructure and knowledge to take advantage of this growth,” they wrote. “Despite its advantages, Canada has lost market share in almost every major product category. It lags in productivity both in primary agriculture and the food industry.” At the Senate committee, Martin argued that the regulatory and product approval system should be improved and made “tough but fast” as well as more compatible with regulatory systems in competitor countries.

Despite its advantages, Canada has lost market share in almost every major product category. MACDONALD-LAURIER INSTITUTE REPORT

He said a key ingredient of a more competitive food sector is more access to foreign markets through trade deals and more competition in the Canadian market from imports to keep Canadian producers and companies on their competitive toes. Martin raised the issue of supply management protections as a problem for competitiveness because it limits trade deals, but no senator took him up on the point. The GMC economists argued that Canadian policy should offer more incentives to food companies to invest, noting that investment is less than depreciation.

“We are basically disinvesting,” said Martin. Canadian pork plants use far too much labour and far too few robots to compete with highly automated European plants. He also argued that there should be a move away from government subsidies for farmers, particularly if they are weighted to helping small producers. Martin called for “more reliance on private risk management tools and less reliance on government.” He said the farm lobby has been responsible for promoting government protection. “I do not know how to say this other than to say it,” he said. “What I have observed over the past 40 years is that farm organizations and many farmers spend a lot of effort to try to maximize the payout from government programs. If they were to spend the same effort on figuring out how to be innovative in their industries, they would probably be further ahead.”

However, Martin agreed with Conservative senator Mike Duffy that despite all the problems, agriculture and food sector players have an optimistic outlook. “Absolutely it is a ver y bright future,” he said. However, Stiefelmeyer said the successful farm sector of the future will not look like the current model. “In the future for farming, I see that there will be two types of farms — the larger farm enterprises that use technology and that are supplying export markets and larger chains in Canada, and then we will get rid of the middle and we will have niche market farms,” she said. “I see the industry going that way with both larger farms and smaller niche market farms being successful.” In their study for the MacdonaldLaurier Institute, the GMC economists concluded that a disproportionate amount of government support payments go to smaller farms that produce little net income from agriculture.





Farm equipment makers hit with lower tax credit Change will ‘hinder innovation’ | Reduction in the manufacturing tax benefit will affect Canadian research BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

A federal government budget proposal to change the rules for a manufacturers’ tax credit will cost manufacturers of agricultural equipment millions of dollars and hurt competitiveness, says an industry representative. In a budget bill now before Parliament, finance minister Jim Flaherty proposes to reduce the Scientific Research and Experimental Development tax credit for companies to 15 percent from 20 percent.

The budget would also exclude from the tax credit program capital expenditures such as buying equipment needed to make equipment. A coalition of Canadian manufacturing interests including agricultural equipment companies and the Canadian Fertilizer Institute have protested the proposal in a letter to Flaherty, arguing that it would remove more than $800 million of tax benefit to the manufacturing industry. In a May 8 appearance at the Senate agriculture committee, Associ-

ation of Equipment Manufacturers p u b l i c p o l i c y a d v i s e r How a rd Mains argued it would hurt companies like Winnipeg agricultural machinery manufacturer MacDon Industries Ltd. The change in the capital cost allowance would “severely hinder innovation and development in the Canadian manufacturing sector,” Mains told senators. In a later interview, he said the changes would favour labour-intensive product development such as computer software and penalize equipment manufacturers that must

buy equipment to develop new models. “The proposals in the budget really don’t take account of how research and development is done on the manufacturing floor,” he said. “We hope the government reconsiders.” He said the harvesting equipment that MacDon markets around the world takes years to develop and millions of dollars of investment. In his May 7 letter to Flaherty, which was signed by other manufacturing sector leaders, Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters president Jason Myers said other coun-

tries still offer more tax breaks for their manufacturers than Canada does, despite Conservative government tax reductions during the past six years. And since many manufacturers are divisions of foreign companies, Canada’s tax regime does not encourage their head offices to assign research and development work to the Canadian branches. “Even with recent reductions in corporate tax rates, Canadian manufacturers are at a disadvantage when they compete for new or increased R and D mandates,” he wrote.

Canada’s staunch defence of supply management makes it impossible to have a clear policy for increased export market access that much of agriculture needs, say George Morris Centre economists. In a study on Canada’s lagging agricultural productivity and world performance published by the Ottawabased Macdonald-Laurier Institute, Larry Martin and Kate Stiefelmeyer argued that Canadian agriculture needs more robust international trade deals and foreign access if it is to reverse a decline in competitiveness. But Canada’s mixed trade message is an impediment. The government supports aggressive pursuit of foreign markets and the reduction in trade barriers while vowing to defend dairy and chicken tariffs as high as 300 percent. “The conflicting position of various industries within Canadian agriculture stand in the way of a clearly articulated and practical strategy for improving access to markets,” they wrote in their report. Martin and Stiefelmeyer argued that protection from competition gives Canadian dairy farmers much higher prices than farmers in other countries. It means they are less interested in investing in technology or expanding for economies of scale because they have a guaranteed administered price. Still, all Canadian political parties have vowed to support current levels of protection even if it affects Canada’s clout in trade liberalization negotiations, they said.





216 wild horses

Basically it’s the increase in the number of these animals that has become the concern. We want to be able to manage their impact. DAVE EALEY




Protection group outraged over wild horse cull Good for environment | The Wild Horses of Alberta Society says the province is catering to forestry companies and ranchers BY PAUL COWLEY FREELANCE WRITER

RED DEER — The president of a society dedicated to preserving Alberta’s wild horses is dismayed that more than 200 animals were rounded up this past season. It’s a significant increase over past years. “They’ve put an unbelievable dent (in the population),” said Bob Henderson, who heads the Wild Horses of Alberta Society. Most of the horses gathered in the scenic country west and north of Sundre will end up in slaughterhouses, he said. Alberta Sustainable Resource Development said 237 permits were issued and 216 horses taken from December to the end of February as part of a program to control the horse population through humane capture. The average in recent years has been about 30 horses.

By Henderson’s count, as few as 500 or 550 wild horses roam the West Country, meaning about 40 percent of the population could be gone. He fears pressure from owners of livestock grazing rights and forestry companies will lead to similarsized roundups in coming years, reducing population to dangerously low levels. “You get down to 100 animals and then the gene pool can be so corrupted that you start getting your inbreeding and stuff like that.” Sustainable Resource Development spokesperson Dave Ealey said the number of horses taken was in keeping with the strategy of keeping the population to a size where it won’t do too much harm to the area’s environment. The horses can be destructive by disturbing regenerating trees planted by forestry companies or by eating grass used by other animals, including deer, elk and cattle.

“Basically it’s the increase in the number of these animals that has become the concern. We want to be able to manage their impact.” The province considers the horses feral — either abandoned or escaped animals and their offspring — rather than wildlife. A department survey showed the horse population had increased from 650 two years ago to 1,000 before the most recent cull. Population increases were likely caused by mild winters and horse owners turning more animals loose to make their own way in the wild. “We have documented evidence of these numbers,” Ealey said. “The wild horse advocates do not have our data. While I certainly support their enthusiasm for the species, it’s not without its impacts. And we are responsible for managing public lands for multiple uses and the types of uses that are going to sustain the types of ecosystems we’ve got there.”

The average of 30 horses per year taken over the last few years also takes into account seasons where almost none were taken because the size of the population was unclear. Ealey said no specific target population has been determined, but the department knows a population of 200 is too low. “We’re willing to have feral horses there. We’re not out there to eradicate them.” Henderson believes the unprecedented cull is a direct result of a government that at best tolerates the wild horses but would be just as happy to see them gone. He dismisses claims the horses are damaging the environment. “It’s not true,” he said, pointing out that 10,000 cattle are grazed in the area every summer and eat a lot more than the horses would. Henderson suspects that pressure from logging companies and those holding grazing leases in the area

prompted the big increase in captures. Forestry companies “say the horses are ruining the environment and damaging it out there. That’s bull too. We can show that the horses actually benefit the new seedlings and stuff like that.” Horses aren’t pushing other wildlife out of grazing areas, either, he said. “Everywhere we go, where there’s horses you’ll find other wildlife. When you don’t find the horses, you don’t find too many other animals neither.” An online petition to save the wild horses is on the society’s website and those concerned are urged to write letters to the premier or their MLA. The horses are part of the province’s heritage, he said. “Our current government or Sustainable Resource Development is just looking at them as just being feral and pests and stuff like that instead of being beautiful and natural.”

Blocking system puts Prairies ‘under the gun’ Tropical storms block normal weather, making the Prairies vulnerable to frequent drought BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Climatologists have long suggested that climate change will result in more droughts on the Prairies. Meteorologist and McGill University fellow Eyad Atallah now has more evidence to suggest that will be true. Atallah has been exploring the relationship between tropical storms in the Pacific Ocean and dry weather on the Canadian Prairies. By studying pressure systems called blocks, he has found a correlation that holds in both winter and summer. Tropical storms create large scale atmospheric pressure patterns that redirect or block migratory cyclones, leaving some areas persistently wet and others abnormally warm and dry. “The big red flag is that this pattern of blocking that is associated with drought appears to be co-related with the fact that the globe is warming up,” said Atallah after a May 8 lecture. “As the temperatures increase, this type of pattern is becoming more and

Atallah spoke at the University of Lethbridge. | BARB GLEN PHOTO more persistent … and that would suggest a much higher rate of vulnerability or frequency of drought on the Prairies.” Atallah and his colleagues tested his interpretation of blocking by studying patterns from the devastating prairie drought of 2001-05. They found specific high and low pressure

patterns related to extended periods of dry prairie weather. Drought is related to a positive phase of the Pacific North American weather pattern, Atallah said. It is characterized by a low pressure system in the Gulf of Alaska and an abnormally high pressure system in Western Canada.

This isn’t always the situation when persistent dry weather occurs on the Prairies, he added, “but it’s more likely than not.” The weather pattern is in part created by the pineapple express, the transport of tropical moisture that generally starts near the Hawaiian Islands and is carried by the jet stream or storm activity. When that moist warm air reaches British Columbia and the Rockies, it results in rain. Heat associated with condensation warms the atmosphere, raising the air pressure on the eastern side of the mountains. High pressure is generally associated with warm, dry conditions. Atallah said temperatures average six degrees above normal in the week after a pineapple express reaches B.C. The relationship of pressure sys-

tems that block regular weather movement has been studied for years, Atallah said, but this is a new application of the data. He termed the 2001-05 drought as “a run of extremely bad luck” that indicates there is only partial predictability to droughts. He said the troubling part of his research is the correlation of the Pacific North American pattern with rising global temperatures that suggests greater probability of prairie drought. “A lot of our indications are that in terms of the dry part of the blocking, it seems to be that the Prairies are under the gun here.” However, he is reluctant to draw conclusions because reliable weather data is only available for the last 100 years and climate change occurs over hundreds of years.



The Canadian Agri-Food Trade Alliance recently celebrated its 15th anniversary during a board meeting and reception in Ottawa . Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz praised the lobby group as a key supporter of the government’s relentless drive to forge new international trade agreements. “There’s no question CAFTA has been a driving force in opening new market opportunities for our farmers and food processors, and I thank you for that,” Ritz said at the May 8 reception. The group that became CAFTA formed in 1997 and is one of the most influential lobby groups in Ottawa now that power resides with a Conservative government with a strong trade agenda. Export dependent businesses were convinced by the World Trade Organization deal of 1993 that they needed a stronger voice. They felt the deal gave Canadian agricultural exporters little new

access but preserved supply management protections for the dairy, egg and poultry industries. Led in part by then-Western Canadian Wheat Growers’ Association president Ted Menzies, now junior finance minister in the federal Conservative government, export interests decided to organize so that their lobby voice would be prominent in future negotiations. CAFTA has since expanded its reach to include livestock, grain, pulse, sugar and processing interests with members across the country. CAFTA president Richard Phillips said the organization has been successful because it has worked hard to make contact with Canadian trade officials and politicians as well as officials in many of the countries to which Canada hopes to export. “We really have worked hard to develop relationships,” he said. And the organization was a natural fit when the Conservatives took power in 2006 with a strong trade agenda. Members have been part of government trade delegations ever since.





Ag Canada worker played key role in canola expansion Dave Mallough | Helped speed canola development by finding winter breeding sites for seed multiplication BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Long before canola was king on the Prairies, Dave Mallough delivered the seed to producers in California. His efforts helped reverse the fate of the oilseed north of the border, bringing new varieties to market, improving the oilseed’s oil and meal quality and diversifying its use beyond industrial oil. In 1970, the fatty acid composition of rapeseed oil had come under the scrutiny of nutritionists, which jeopardized its place in European and Japanese markets. Work was already underway on Polish and Argentine varieties with a lower erucic acid composition, which was the source of nutritionists’ concern. However, only a small amount of breeder’s seed was on hand, and Agriculture Canada officials had to be convinced that the seed needed to be multiplied over the winter so that enough would be available for seeding the following spring, said celebrated plant breeder Keith Downey, whose work breeding canola helped shape the province’s landscape and economy. It was Mallough, a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan’s agriculture college and a longtime crop inspector and Agriculture Canada e m p l oy e e, w h o w a s g i v e n t h e responsibility of taking the seed south to find suitable growers and land, as well as someone to combine and clean the seed. Mallough died last month at the age of 87. “He had to scramble to find land because we were a little late getting it down there,” said Downey. “Quite a bit of the land had already been contracted or seeded. Not every farmer wanted to grow this crop that he had never seen before.” There were problems. It was a cold winter in California, with the risk of frost, and it wasn’t easy to transport it back, said Downey. There was even talk of the Canadian Air Force flying it back for Canadian producers in the spring. The rapeseed crop, then numbering five million acres, would be completely turned over to these lower erucic acid varieties — Oro and Span— over the next two years, said Downey. “The multiplication and changing over of the crop in an extremely short time was pivotal,” he said. “There was a possibility that if we didn’t have that, that we could lose our markets.” Glen Beck, a relative of Mallough’s, said Agriculture Canada played an important role in the crop’s development.

“If, for example, that had been partnered with Monsanto, farmers would be buying their seed from a private company and of course the entire

distribution of proceeds from the project would’ve changed somewhat more dramatically,” he said. “You’d have a very wealthy private

company and some less wealthy farmers.” Mallough would again contribute to a winter increase project in Cali-

fornia during the latter half of the 1970s. This time it was to help produce a seed that would allow crushers to produce meal with a lower glucosinolate content for livestock feed without blending it. “You could use it directly, which changed the equation in terms of how much oil they could produce,” said Downey. “Because before that time, the amount of oil they could produce was really limited by how much meal they could sell. Now that lid was taken off.”

Beef ‘bacon’ adds value to trim meat

Oat commission planned for Alta.

Looks the same | Canadian Beef Bacon boasts fewer calories and less cholesterol than pork



The Prairie Oat Growers Association may soon live up to its original mandate by including an Alberta oat commission in its fold. POGA president Bill Wilton of Winnipeg said the Alberta Products Marketing Council is now drafting regulations for the proposed Alberta Oat Grower Commission and if approved, the new commission could be established as early as Aug. 1. When POGA was formed in 1998 from the former Alberta Oat Growers Association, the intention was membership from all three provinces. Because checkoffs are provincially managed, each province was expected to form a commission and collect funds that POGA would then manage. “We’ve been a little slow off the mark in Alberta,” said Wilton. “The original board of directors thought they were well enough connected politically that they could simply go to the minister of agriculture and the premier and have this thing decreed. It doesn’t work that way. There’s a bureaucratic process that you have to go through.” Wilton said he expects to hear from the marketing council by the end of the month about establishing the commission. An all-wheat commission also proposed in Alberta is expecting to receive word at the same time.


Richard Janzen is putting a new twist on the marketing slogan, “where’s the beef?” Janzen is manufacturing beef bacon from cow bellies. The president of Calgary-based Canadian Beef Bacon, which also markets beef ham, says his product adds to the animal’s total carcass value. “When you’re taking an extra 50 to 100 pounds of a carcass and developing it into a value-added product, that’s pretty unbelievable,” he said. Janzen began researching and developing beef bacon in 2009 before launching it last year at a food show in Toronto. “It looks and tastes exactly like bacon,” said Janzen, while boasting a more attractive nutritional content than pork, with fewer calories and less cholesterol. While he’s not the first person to produce beef bacon, he said his method is different. Where other companies have made beef bacon from the animal’s brisket, his is made from the same cut of meat as traditional pork bacon. “We’re not talking beef and pressing it and forming it and making it look like bacon,” said Janzen.

We’re taking beef products that have no value virtually — they’re hard to market, there’s no great idea for them — and we’ve turned them into beef bacon. RICHARD JANZEN CANADIAN BEEF BACON PRESIDENT

Canadian Beef Bacon, which is created from cow bellies, adds to the animal’s total carcass value. | RICHARD JANZEN PHOTO Janzen said he had difficulty getting a beef belly from a butcher when he started developing the product. The beef from the more undesirable short plate usually ends up as trim and used in hamburgers. Janzen used a partnership with Canada Beef Inc., which helps research, market and promote beef products, to secure Cargill as a supplier. The company developed a new beef code to meet Janzen’s specifications. His product is manufactured at

plant in Ontario, where it is processed and cured similarly to pork. Janzen started selling beef bacon at farmers’ markets and has stocked the product in grocery stores and restaurants in Alberta and British Columbia. However, production has ceased while a new recipe to make the product phosphate free awaits approval from regulators. Anne Kennedy of Agriculture Canada’s food regulatory issues division works with food companies as they seek regulatory approval.

“You want to make sure that you really understand the implications of either changing a supplier, or changing an ingredient, and how that affects your nutrition,” she said in an interview after speaking at a recent Saskatoon conference about food labels and marketing. She said it’s a common mistake that companies make when they take products through the pipeline for the first time. “They always want to blame the regulatory people when in fact they were unaware that they had some more homework to do before they could go to market.” Once approved, Janzen expects to see his product distributed by Costco and other Canadian retailers. “We’re taking beef products that have no value virtually — they’re hard to market, there’s no great idea for them — and we’ve turned them into beef bacon.”

Know costs, risks before heading for loan Expansion mode | With rising commodity prices and market volatility, farmers need to know their cost of production STORIES BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

RED DEER — Farmgate prices are up and lenders are looking to expand

their agriculture portfolios. However, if interest rates start to climb, this could be a good time to lock in terms, said two Bank of Montreal farm lenders.

Farmers are investing in more supply managed quota, new equipment and technology as well as covering the increased cost of production, said Janine Sekulic, a BMO agrologist

based in Red Deer, who works with lenders to structure agricultural financing. “For some of our feedlot customers, there has been a 35 percent increase

in the cost of finishing calves. That translates into a need for more operating capital,” she said at the Alberta Agricultural Economics Association annual meeting in Red Deer May 3.

NEWS The largest feedlot cost is buying feeder cattle. Last year, Alberta prices for an 850 pound steer increased nearly 20 percent from the previous year, said Canfax. Fed cattle prices have increased by more than 30 percent, but boxed beef went up only 18 percent, so feeders and packers are wading through red ink. With that kind of volatility, producers need to know their cost of production, but few actually do, said Ross Posey, BMO manager for farm lending in Alberta. Producers need to understand having equity does not always mean repayment capacity. For every $100 of debt, the farmer should have $125 net income, said Sekulic. When examining applications, lenders want to know the level of risk and how the debt can be paid. They want to know what the producer is doing to minimize risk and how equity is being protected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The major risks in agriculture are not significantly different than they were 50 or 100 years ago. The difference now is the stakes,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Much more money is at stake and the speed of change in the modern agriculture industry has been exponential. Modern farmers need a broader knowledge of production and markets or they must be willing to hire someone with that expertise. Sekulic said a farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past credit history management has the biggest impact on ability to repay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We put a lot of weight on historical performance and experience,â&#x20AC;? she said. Financial and production record keeping are needed, and the bank wants to know how an individual makes spending decisions. It also wants to know what percentage of a purchase needs to be financed and whether the grower is making the purchase because it will improve the farm or because it is just a shiny new purchase. Farm debt in Canada is around $70 billion, up from $60 billion in 2008, according to Statistics Canada. Alberta debt as of 2010 was nearly $15 billion compared to 2008, when debt was calculated at $13 billion.


Many farmers are using todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s higher commodity prices to upgrade their equipment, or build their quota or livestock operations. However, some farm lenders advise that if interest rates start to rise, farmers should lock in longer-term rates. | FILE PHOTO


Consider independent adviser for farm succession planning RED DEER â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Farmers might want to consider an independent adviser when it is time to turn over the farm to the next generation, suggests a consultant who helps farmers work through the transition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every farm situation is unique. You will find components that are common, but no two are alike,â&#x20AC;? said John Read. Read works with farm families on management, succession and estate plans. Parents are often afraid the children will not honour the legacy and appreciate the history of the place they built, he told the Alberta Agricultural Economics Association annual meeting held May 3 in Red Deer. As well, there can be biases based on birth order, gender and in-laws. The succession plan needs to work through the size of the business and total assets to make sure everyone is treated fairly and that the farm can provide a living for more than one family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is not about how big the pie is but how big a piece you get,â&#x20AC;? he said. All the stakeholders must be involved early on so that critical issues can be discussed. This may be done in private with individuals to see what conflicts may be coming. It is advisable to have the first meeting off the farm rather than the family home. People are usually clear about their goals for the farm, but they have to prioritize them. Few are comfortable writing them out. Read said he will do this and the family can edit them. Read also helps identify critical issues such as how much each takes out as wages, housing, taxes and outstanding debt and how succession plans might affect security on loans. He collects information on birth dates, asset lists, liabilities, who holds the loan, who owns what property, a list of equipment and legal land descriptions including a map or aerial photograph of the land. He can also bring in other experts such as lawyers, accountants and

financial planners to smooth the transition. The facilitator needs to do follow-up and keep track of progress. There will also be a discussion on handling conflict. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is OK to disagree, and we will find the solution to it,â&#x20AC;? he said. A major question is whether there is enough to go around and support another family. Often there is not. Records are often poor when it comes to farm profit, whether there is enough money to service the debt and how much money each family needs to live. A lot of money is hidden in farm expenses such as utilities and fuel. As well, some families are frugal and others are spendthrifts. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;what ifsâ&#x20AC;? must be addressed. Families need to agree on what happens in the event of divorce, addictions, death, physical injury, family disputes, mental illness, terminal disease or dementia. Marriages can break down after decades, so it is not just the younger generation that can destroy a familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wealth. The older generation should be protected first because they cannot rebuild their assets. Division of prop-


erty should be directed only to the children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If through this process you end up giving things to your children, you give it to the child and not the child and their spouse. If they want to share it, that is their prerogative and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything about it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Many things can go wrong without explanation, but sometimes the cause is dementia or addictions. Paranoia and distrust are early warning signs of dementia. The person stops trusting a spouse, children or business associates. There could be an inability to make decisions that may do a lot of future damage. If there is an addiction to alcohol, drugs or gambling, some decisions wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense until people admit the problem. A succession plan can take three to five years and it should be integrated into the estate plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will not do a succession plan that depends only on the will as a document to conclude it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The younger generation must have more certainty than that. They cannot put decades into this place and have somebody change the will at the last minute.â&#x20AC;?

Emergency preparedness week, which just passed May 6-12, is an annual cross-country event that encourages Canadians to prepare for emergencies and disasters. The following recommendation will help improve emergency preparedness: • know the risks in your community and the most appropriate way to respond to them. Contact your local municipal emergency management office for advice on identifying the risks in your area • make a plan for what your family will do, who they will contact and where they will go. Practice it regularly • pull together a 72-hour kit with enough non-perishable food, water, medication, warm clothing and comfort items for all family members. Similarly, you should make a ready-to-go kit in case you need to evacuate your home quickly. Subscribe to emergency alert systems in your region.





Their entry was a pulse-based, gluten-free pasta product that they named Pulseibilties. The pasta hit the mark with the judges for its gluten-free characteristic, delicious taste and the students’ ability to incorporate all four pulses (lentils, chickpeas, peas and beans) into the product formulation. Maximchuk and Giles will now present their idea at the national competition in Montreal June 27. Ideas from other parts of the country include a pre-scaled, gluten- free dry cake-mix containing chickpea and faba bean flours, a dark chocolate black bean truffle torte with a crunchy chickpea-nut crust, and veggie samosa patty made with chickpea and white kidney bean flours.

STRONG FOOD EXPORTS SET TABLE FOR BRIGHT AG FUTURE The Canadian Agri-Food Trade Alliance is celebrating its 15th anniversary as Canadian farmers and food processors enjoy record export sales and strong global demand. Global markets play an important role for Canada’s agriculture and food sector, with many producers and processors exporting 50 to 85 percent of their production. The federal government has concluded free trade agreements with nine countries in six years, and is currently negotiating agreements with more than 50 countries, including major customers such as the European Union, India and Japan. In 2011, Canada reached a new record of exporting $44 billion in agriculture, food and seafood, with significant increases in key markets such as South Korea, Russia and India, plus record levels for pork and processed food.

Tackling world hunger by reaching to the roots This feature on global hunger was produced by AlertNet, a global humanitarian news service run by Thomson Reuters Foundation LONDON, U.K. (Reuters) — In flood-hit fields in the Philippines, farmers are testing a hardy new variety of rice that can survive completely submerged for more than two weeks. In Kenya’s Kibera slum, poor urban families are improving their diets and incomes just by learning to grow vegetables in sack gardens outside their doors. And in India, a push to help marginalized rural communities gain title to their land is leading to a significant drop in hunger. These are just a few of the kinds of innovations and initiatives that experts say will be critical if the world is to feed itself over coming decades as the population soars, cities sprawl and climate change takes its toll. By 2050, the planet will need at least 70 percent more food than it does today to meet both an expected rise

in population to nine billion from seven billion and changing appetites as many poor people grow richer, experts say. “Can we feed a world of nine billion? I would say the answer is yes,” said Robert Watson, chief scientific adviser to the British government’s environment and r ural affairs department and a former chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. But doing so will require fundamental changes to unsustainable but well-entrenched policies and practices, from eating so much meat to spending trillions on agriculture and fuel subsidies, he said. In the meantime, many hunger fighters say the answer lies in clever alterations to the way food is planted, watered, harvested, stored, transported, sold, owned and shared. Many of those changes are already

being tested in the world’s farms and fields, in laboratories and government offices and in factories and markets. Some are even speaking of the beginnings of a 21st century food revolution. Unlike the last century’s agricultural Green Revolution, which dramatically boosted world food production with new high-yielding crop varieties and more irrigation, this revolution must rely on myriad “green bullets” to tackle hunger. They include persuading farmers in Africa’s drought zones to switch from water-hungry rice to hardier crops like sorghum or millet and helping farmers build pest-proof grain silos that allow food to be stored longer or sold when prices are higher. With 70 percent of the world’s people expected to live in cities by 2050, a major focus will be to find ways to help city dwellers grow food in small urban plots or roof gardens or group together to buy food at cheaper prices. In California’s East Palo Alto, for instance, older inner-city residents, who are particularly vulnerable to high food prices, are learning growing techniques for the first time and producing food for themselves and a neighbourhood market. Other urban areas are turning to vertical hydroponic gardens clinging to the edge of skyscrapers. Women, who grow at least 40 percent of food in Africa and Asia, will need improved land rights and better access to information, which experts say is being made much easier by the spread of mobile phone technology.

Rural women in India’s Andhra Pradesh state now use advance drought warnings, relayed by the internet and mobile phone, to switch to more drought-tolerant crops. The move has saved harvests and helped stem the usual wave of migration to cities in drought times. Changing farming practices by adopting more water-conserving drip irrigation and planting crops

amid fertilizing trees, as is now happening throughout Africa, will also be key. Another priority will be to reduce the 30 percent of the world’s food supply that is eaten by pests, spoiled on the way to market or thrown away unused from plates and supermarkets. Simply getting supermarkets to stop offering two-for-one specials, which can encourage people to overbuy,

Cecil Patterson By Sara Williams Born in Watford, Ontario in 1892, Cecil Patterson grew up on the family farm with a thoroughly ingrained work ethic. He graduated from the Guelph Ontario Agricultural College, in horticulture, in 1918, received his master’s degree from the University of Illinois in 1920, and his PhD in 1921.

would be a start, some anti-hunger activists say, as would improving roads in South Asia and Africa where transport delays mean produce often rots on the way to market. Experts say solutions to the threat of worsening hunger will var y by region, by country and sometimes even from one farm or village or apartment building to the next. Not all ideas will succeed, and scaling up those that do prove to work, as quickly as possible, will be essential. In a world where an estimated 900 million people are already hungry, curbing surging consumption in rich nations and those fast becoming rich, especially in India and China, will be particularly important, experts say. “If we look at the graph of (rising) human consumption, that’s the one to worry about,” said Phil Bloomer, director of campaigns and policy for Oxfam Great Britain. “That is a graph that should strike panic in our hearts.” Persuading rich people to eat less meat and fewer milk products, which take a lot of grain to produce, would go a long way toward curbing everrising demand for grain. Many innovations focus on easing the adverse effects of climate change on food production. While warmer weather and growing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere could spur plant growth and food production in some regions and open a few northern reaches of the world to farming, many more regions are expected to see worsening losses from droughts, floods,

storms, rising sea levels and higher temperatures that can cause crop yields to drop. “It used to be there was an extreme weather event here or there, but we knew that in a year or so things would go back to normal,” said Lester Brown, a food security and sustainability expert and president of the U.S.-based Earth Policy Institute. “Now there is no normal to go back to.” That’s why scientists from Bangladesh to Tanzania are developing resilient crop varieties that can survive underwater, or with little rain, or even both extremes in the same season. Other innovators are focusing on the effects of increasing water scarcity. “A substantial amount of our food production worldwide comes from non-renewable ground water sources, and in the long run that is not sustainable,” said Peter Gleick, a leading water expert and head of the U.S.based Pacific Institute for Studies in Development, Environment and Security. People are learning to harvest and store water to ensure supplies throughout the year. They are also developing water-conserving irrigation methods to make what they have available last. Will all such innovations be enough to feed nine billion people by 2050? Possibly, say experts, but success will depend on making enough key changes fast enough. In addition to on-the-ground solutions, those changes will need to include major policy shifts, including potentially a ban on turning grain

HUNGER PRICE TAGS Did you know... • It costs $10 to feed a boy in a Kenya refugee camp for three weeks, less than the cost of a lipstick in Manhattan. • It would cost $3.5 billion to feed every hungry schoolchild in the world. That’s around two times the takings from the movie, Titanic, which grossed $1.8 billion worldwide. • It costs $50 to feed a schoolgirl for one year; similar to the cost of one IPod shuffle ($45) • One super-healthy ration of Plumpy’Sup for a small child is just 20 cents, slightly more than a standard postage stamp (61 cents).

At the age of 28, in 1921, he came to the University of Saskatchewan, becoming the first head of the Department of Horticulture Science. A quiet man, dedicated to plants, he worked mostly alone and was responsible for teaching, research, extension and administration as well as landscaping the new campus. By 1950, Cecil Patterson had made horticultural history as the first plant breeder to develop hardy lilies in shades of pink and white. He bred more than 30 lilies, many still available to prairie gardeners. ‘Edith Cecilia’, ‘White Princess’, ‘Jasper’, and ‘Apricot Glow’ are considered of great value more than fifty years after their introduction. Fruit breeding, his other great passion, was done with controlled crosses with pollen from known sources. Still available are ‘Patterson Pride’ plum, ‘Beta’ cherry-plum, ‘McLean’ apple, and ‘John’ pear. He developed 52 varieties of cold hardy fruits and has been acknowledged to have initiated fruit breeding on the prairies. Because no textbook on hardy fruit existed, Patterson self-published Hardy Fruits with Special Reference to their Cultivation in Western Canada in 1936. With great foresight, he viewed orchards as essential to prairie farmsteads and envisioned the small commercial orchards that would later supply fruit to urban populations. Cecil Patterson retired in 1961, passing away the same year. He is honored by Patterson Garden, the arboretum (over 700 trees and shrubs) on the University of Saskatchewan campus at the corner of Preston and College Drive (agbio., and the Patterson Peninsula on Lac la Ronge.

Tallying world’s hungry: LONDON, U.K. — Two years ago, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization launched a petition to fight hunger with the slogan: “1,000,000,000 people live in chronic hunger and I’m mad as hell.” Since then, more than 3.4 million people, including actors, pop stars and footballers, have added their voices to the online campaign calling on governments to make the elimination of hunger their top priority. But outrage over the “horrifying figure” of one billion hungry people around the world, as it was described by former FAO head Jacques Diouf, has turned to embarrassment in some quarters in light of growing

doubts about the accuracy of the number. Many researchers say the estimate was simply too high. “The fact that it’s one billion is a much better story, and that’s why it stays in people’s minds,” said Richard King, a food policy expert with Oxfam. “It’s a great number.” The controversy led the Committee on World Food Security, a top-level UN forum, to urge the FAO to overhaul its calculations using better data and methodology and to call for a set of internationally agreed food-security indicators. The first fruits are due in October when a new estimate of the number of undernourished people will be

published along with revisions for previous years as part of the FAO’s annual report on food insecurity. The report will also include supplemental indicators of hunger, such as the share of household budgets spent on food. “If you only present one number, there is a tendency to over-interpret it and take it as if it were capturing everything, but we want to try and be more explicit in recognizing the various dimensions of food insecurity,” said Carlo Cafiero, a senior FAO statistician. Nutritionists have long complained that the FAO’s hunger estimates focused too narrowly on calorie

intake, ignoring the bigger picture — protein, vitamin and mineral deficiencies in diets and the serious health problems they cause. Calculating the number of hungry people around the world at any given moment, let alone predicting how that number is likely to change in the future, is no easy task. Models for working out how many people don’t have enough to eat are not as precise as experts would like, partly due to lags in the release of national-level statistics, shifting economic conditions, food harvests and price volatility. When the FAO came under pressure to say how much hunger was

increasing due to skyrocketing food prices and the global financial crisis in 2008, it combined U.S. Department of Agriculture projections of how economic turmoil would hurt food production, consumption and trade with its own hunger estimates of previous years, and extrapolated from there. It estimated a “historic high” of 1.02 billion undernourished people, or around one-sixth of humanity, in 2009. But economic conditions did not turn out to be as disastrous as anticipated, and food production held up better than expected. In addition, prices didn’t rise as much as feared in some developing countries. As well, many people were able to maintain the amount of calories they ate by switching to cheaper foods. “We have a responsibility to bring the view from the field ... to make sure it’s not just a technical exercise, but reflects the reality on the ground,” said Alberta Guerra, a Rome-based food policy officer for ActionAid. In Nairobi’s slums, when the cost of food soared in 2008, many poor urban families cut out meat and fish, went without medicine and took their children out of school. With post-election violence making matters worse, some even stole food, scavenged in garbage dumps, brewed illegal alcohol or turned to prostitution to survive. But the many aid agencies based in the Kenyan capital didn’t have a system to pinpoint when conditions for poor slum dwellers were becoming an emergency. “It was very difficult to get funding for urban response, partly because there were no metrics to say we are seeing a critical situation,” said Lilly Schofield, research adviser with Concern Worldwide. The organization has since begun testing indicators to capture changes in household food security in Kenya’s slums, where food has remained expensive. Nyauma Nyasani, East Africa nutrition adviser for Action Against Hunger, said frequent, on-the-ground checks are far more effective at anticipating hunger problems than annual nutrition surveys. For the past year, the aid group has been piloting a food security surveillance system in Kenya’s arid northeast, based on household questionnaires conducted every three months. And in Uganda, after a similar two-year project, it is developing national guidelines to monitor food security with the health ministry. Funding is an obstacle. Shifting to a more responsive system requires political commitment and long-term financial resources, but rich governments and UN agencies tend to offer money on a short timeframe. Saul Guerrero, evaluations adviser with Action Against Hunger, said aid workers detected warning signs months before the onset of last year’s severe hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa, where some 13 million people needed food aid because of a regional drought and conflict in Somalia. “Whoever tells you the data let us down doesn’t know what they are talking about,” he said. “It was the final bit that didn’t work —turning data into policy. This is the question no one has the full answer to.”

NEVER LOOK BACK! Step into the productivity of a new Guardian™ front boom sprayer from New Holland and you won’t turn back. With the boom in front, you have a complete unobstructed view of every nozzle. This outstanding visibility means you can run the boom closer to the ground to control drift. Spray is delivered into the crop before the first tires go over it, eliminating the potential for dust to neutralize the spray. Start achieving a new level of spraying freedom and productivity. THE HIGHEST HORSEPOWER AVAILABLE – UP TO 365 HP THE LARGEST TANK SIZES – UP TO 1,600 GALLONS THE HIGHEST CROP CLEARANCE – SIX FEET THE TIGHTEST TURNING – 15-FOOT TURNING RADIUS THE SMOOTHEST SUSPENSION – 20 INCHES OF TRAVEL ©2011 CNH America LC.

It’s not even fair, really. It would’ve been enough to give the RoGator® a whole new design. Especially with a revamped cab for enhanced comfort and greater visibility, and reduced noise to give you a super quiet ride. But we kept on going. So now our proven drive package, with an AGCO Power 8.4 liter diesel engine, is underneath that sleek exterior to boost horsepower. The result is one monster machine. In fact, we think it’s the best RoGator to ever roll off the line. And that’s saying something. No matter what color you’re running now, do yourself a favor and test drive one at a dealer near you.

Wireless ART Air Seeder Rate and Blockage Monitor


Evolution of the ART Monitor

The WIRELESS ART Rate and Blockage monitor takes the uncertainty out of air cart operation. You will know if your seeding system is having any of these common problems: • Seed Blockage/No Seed Problems • Rate Problems

Use your Google ® Android ® Phone to keep track of our air seeder operation with an ‘App’.

(Windows Phone, Apple and Blackberry ‘App’s are in development) No wires to the cab means quicker startups, and no worries about towing the seeder with the monitor harness! The WIRELESS ART works with today’s large single Shoot and Double Shoot seeding systems. Up to 240 runs can be monitored on double shoot systems (separate seed and fertilizer runs). Use the WIRELESS ART to confirm your calibration for seed and fertilizer rates using the Seed Rate Wizard. Seeds per acre (or pounds per acre) and Fertilizer pounds per acre are displayed. 242 Robin Cres. Saskatoon, SK Canada S7L 7C2 Ph 306-934-0640 Fx 306-668-7666 Email:

To Whom it May Concern Re: Farmland sale to Sask Farms Ltd (Doug Rue) We contacted Doug Rue through an ad in our local paper, and from the time that contact was made things happened very quickly. He made a trip out to our farm to look at it and signed an Option that day for the price we had asked for. The deal was completed, with our land being sold to a third party who have been very fair and easy to deal with, giving us time to have our auction sale and to clean out the yard and house. We would recommend Doug Rue and his company to anyone who is interested in selling.

GM crops needed to feed growing global population Dispel myths | Call for science-based debate BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

An advocate for a more informed science debate in Canada says future generations will look back and wonder what all the fuss was about over genetically modified crops. Joe Schwarcz, director of the McGill University’s Office for Science and Society, told a CropLife Canada conference in Ottawa May 10 that resistance to GM crops is part of a broad environmental resistance that is based on emotion rather than science. He said the challenge of feeding a growing and hungry world cannot be met without the benefits of increased yields and hardier varieties that can be produced through GM technology. “I really believe that 50 years from now, people will say, ‘what were we arguing about GMOs for,’ ” he said. Schwarcz acknowledged that speaking to a CropLife Canada audience was “talking to the choir.” They represent the companies that produce and sell agricultural chemicals and GM seed varieties. The crowd clearly appreciated his message that much of the resistance to pesticides and genetic modification is the result of “chemophobia” in the population, based on misperceptions about chemicals and their impact. Everything is made of chemicals, he said. “If you are buying your child a chemical-free product, it is not a good deal,” he said. “You are buying a vacuum.” Schwarcz said the McGill centre he heads is funded by neither side of the debate so there is no conflict of interest. The centre’s mission is to “keep people out of the clutches of the charlatans” and to “sift sense from the nonsense.”

For Schwarcz, the nonsense comes from anti-chemical and anti-GM advocates who insist that organic food is safer, more environmentally friendly and more nutritious than produce raised with chemical help or that “natural” food is safer than GM food. He said organics have a legitimate place in the food system, but all food and products contain natural chemicals so the idea of “chemical-free” is ludicrous. As well, use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers for food production is not an inherent danger as long as proper food testing and residue limit controls are in place. “Chemicals are not to be feared, not to be worshipped but to be understood,” said Schwarcz. He said the pesticide industry has not done a good job explaining that pesticides and herbicides are necessar y to fight the 10,000 known insects, 8,000 fungi and 2,000 weeds that affect food production. “Chemicals are used out of necessity and that’s the message we have to convey,” he said. He also said critics of chemical use in agriculture overlook the rigorous testing and oversight in the Canadian pesticide re gulation and food inspection systems. Excess use of chemicals and lingering residues can be dangerous but Canadian food in the marketplace is overwhelmingly safe, he added. “Death does not lurk in the produce aisle,” he said. The basic apple contains 300 natural chemicals, some of them toxic in high doses and yet it is a nutritious and healthy product, said Schwarcz. “What we have to do away with is the battle between organic and conventional,” he said. “Both have their place and one is not inherently safer than the other.”

Grain Growers director encourages completion of international trade negotiations Getting ducks in a row | More emphasis needed on completing talks, implementing regulations and ensuring industry can access markets BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Agricultural export sectors continue to support government plans for more trade negotiations, but a grain i n d u s t r y l e a d e r c au t i o n s t hat expanding trade is more than negotiating deals. Grain Growers of Canada executive director Richard Phillips told MPs last week that the government should put more emphasis on actually completing some of the talks, getting regulations in place to implement them and making sure industry can take advantage of the market opening. It includes dealing with the railway

level of service. “We need to finish off some of these trade deals,” he told the House of Commons international trade committee, noting that talks are underway or planned with the European Union, India, Japan and South Korea. “We’ve got some pretty big markets out there. I think we need to actually close and sign off on some of these and have the resources and time focused on them to get them done before we take on too many more.” Phillips said the Canadian governm e nt ha s a l i m i t e d a m o u nt o f resources to put into the trade file. “We only have so many trade nego-

tiators and after the deal is signed, that’s only the start,” he said. “There’s a whole bunch of regulatory stuff that needs to happen to bring systems into alignment for inspection.” And then there is the problem of getting the product to the market. Phillips argued that government and all MPs must continue to focus on improving rail service so shippers can get their commodities to these markets efficiently. A report on rail service is expected from former Alberta treasurer Jim Dinning this summer, and with railways expected to reject tougher legislated level-of-service rules, the Conservative government has promised

to introduce legislation to require and enforce service agreements between shippers and carriers. “I think it’s key that members of Parliament on all sides actually continue to reinforce the railways,” he said. “ ‘You know what? You guys have a virtual monopoly. You’re taking excess profits, you’re not providing good service.’ ” He said finding a way “to give the shippers more balance and more ability for redress when the service is poor, that’s a really big piece for a lot of our shippers.” The trade committee has been holding hearings on the potential benefit of a Canada-Japan trade libe ra l i z at i o n d e a l , a n d P h i l l i p s

appeared at the committee to tell MPs it could have major benefits. Japan already buys 10 percent of Canadian food exports worth more than $3 billion, and grain and oilseed shipments are a big part of it. Canadian Agri-Food Trade Alliance executive director Kathleen Sullivan told the committee that as a rich and food-deficit country, Japan is a key target for exporters and already is next only to the United States as a buyer of Canadian food and agricultural commodities. “Given the importance of the Japanese market for Canada, it’s imperative that any trade deal we sign with that country have a very strong agriculture package,” she said.

GreenSeeker keeps nitrogen in balance Sometimes less is more | GreenSeeker reads the leaves and puts down the appropriate amount of nitrogen for max yields BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

It’s not often that farmers can invest in a piece of farm equipment that makes them money while sitting in the shed. And when they do drag it out to the field, it sometimes does nothing at all, except save them more money. But that’s the way the GreenSeeker increases profits, says producer Lee Moats of Riceton, Sask. It tells farmers not to do something that they were planning to do: apply nitrogen. “The best thing the GreenSeeker did for us in 2011 was stay in the shed so I wouldn’t be tempted to top-dress nitrogen,” Moats said. “I put down our usual low rate of 40 pounds nitrogen when I seeded and didn’t put down a single pound after that. Normally I do a split application to top up the crop. But not in 2011. “I did actually take the GreenSeeker out of the shed and ran it over some crop just to see if we needed more nitrogen. It told me zero N everywhere I drove, so it went back into the shed and stayed there. It had done its job for the year.” Skipping his typical in-crop split nitrogen application saved Moats $25,000 in fertilizer costs for 2011, which is about what the machine cost him in 2009. He called the machine an excellent investment, giving him similar sound advice since 2009. The six-sensor device is mounted on a CaseIH SRX with a 100 footboom. Moat uses the same sprayer for herbicides and simply switches to dribble banding nozzles for liquid nitrogen. Although he had been studying the GreenSeeker for a number of years, Moats said 2008 was the clincher. Spring was dry and he had a lot of winter wheat in the ground. The only winter wheat that survived was the crop that received 100 pounds actual nitrogen in the fall. He said that wasn’t necessarily good news because, even with all the nitrogen, it yielded only 26 bushels. “We had invested enough N for a 70 bu. per acre crop,” he said.

The six GreenSeeker sensors along the 100 foot boom not only helped reduce nitrogen inputs on most crops, they also created an unprecedented boost in protein. Until 2009, Moats had never sold a bushel of high protein durum off the farm. He says the device is obviously doing its job when he suddenly gets protein running from 13.9 percent to 14.3 percent. | LEE MOATS PHOTO

“The nitrogen ended up just sitting there, not working for us. That in itself is expensive, plus you run the risk of losing nitrogen to the environment. If we’d had a GreenSeeker in 2008, we wouldn’t have put down 100 lb. at seeding, and in the spring it probably would have told us to skip the nitrogen all together. That would have saved us a bundle of money. So that got our attention.” Moats said 2009 was a tremendous year for moisture in his area. He had assumed the machine would tell him to put down little or no nitrogen in dry years and lots in years with good moisture. He figured that’s how it would maximize profit potential. “Turns out that so far it hasn’t worked that way at all,” he said. “In our canola in 2009, the GreenS e eker called for ver y modest amounts of nitrogen, about 65 lb. on average. That’s about two-thirds what we normally put on. “We had put down 40 lb. while seeding. When we did the in-season application, we had trouble believing the machine. It called for zero N over large tracts of canola and 25 lb. plus on other areas. But the field average was only 25 lb. “Farmers always like to talk about their best crop. Well, our InVigor averaged 63 or 64 bu. When I work the nitrogen balance, we simply cannot grow that crop with the modest amount of nitrogen we put down. But we did.” Moats said it was a significant cost saving in a year when he expected to buy a lot of extra nitrogen. His 2010 canola crop was a similar story. Following instructions from his GreenSeeker, Moats applied 60 lb. of nitrogen per acre, and the canola eventually yielded 55 bu. “Most of our fields have been in zero till 20 years or longer. They’re mineralizing a lot more nitrogen than we anticipated,” he said. “As a result, our GreenSeeker has been saving us nitrogen in years when we expected it to call for more nitrogen. I think that speaks to our overall soil health.” CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

And it’s better for the environment as well.” Moats said there’s more to the environmental aspect than meets the eye. Sustainability is becoming a real factor in the food industry. It may be nothing more than public image and window dressing for the major food companies, but the fact is they are looking at the environment in which crops are grown. That includes nitrogen management, which is the major component of the carbon footprint. “It’s not out of the question that companies will someday pay farmers a premium for food that has a documented clean green history,” Moats said. “GreenSeeker, of course, lets us reduce nitrogen and then provides us with data to prove it. For example, the canola calibrations from (the) Indian Head (Experimental Farm that analyzed a test field) are so good, we simply cannot find fault with them. They are based on western Canadian soil and climate.” Moats said that he still has reservations about the calibrations for durum, even though his first GreenSeeker experience with the crop in 2009 produced high protein along with high yield. “Until 2009, we had never sold a bushel of high protein durum off this f a r m. Ev e r. Yo u ju s t k n ow t h e machine is doing a good job when all of a sudden you get protein running from 13.9 percent to 14.3 percent. We had one field that was uniform protein on every load. “But in 2010, we were sure we had under-applied nitrogen on durum. And this time we were right. Protein and yield were down, but just slightly. So the GreenSeeker had not performed as well as in 2009.” Moats said it’s important that the calibrations and growth degree days entered into the computer be spot on. If they’re off, the machine has no way to compensate for it. “Winter wheat remains the one crop where we really don’t trust the GreenSeeker yet,” he said. “If we depend on the machine’s opinion, we’re concerned the winter wheat doesn’t get enough nitrogen early enough in the growing season.” Moats said it’s a time issue and a calibration issue. GreenSeeker calibra-

ABOVE LEFT: This sensor measures the level of chlorophyll in leaves, but the data is only useful once the algorithms have been developed and the producer has entered the correct growing degree days and growth stage information into the GreenSeeker system. | LEE MOATS PHOTOS ABOVE RIGHT: The brains of the system are in this little black box, which has helped Moats grow 63 bushel canola on 65 pounds of nitrogen. The GreenSeeker slows or stops applying nitrogen to areas that have enough. It makes a more uniform crop across the field by applying more nitrogen to areas the sensors say are deficient in nitrogen. tions for each crop are tied to the amount of heat it has received, as measured in growing degree days (GDD). Winter wheat is seeded in the fall, so GDD calculations are skewed from the start. Calibrations for winter wheat GDD do not relate to spring wheat GDD because the winter wheat was already actively growing eight or nine months before the spring wheat was seeded. To use the GreenSeeker properly, Moats said it’s also necessary to understand the difference between plant growth and plant development. “Plant development is highly related to heat,” he said. “Heat is what brings it through the stages. One, two, three, four leaf stage. Plant growth, on the other hand, depends on access to nutrients and moisture, plus heat.” For example, a drought challenged plant may have less foliage material, but it’s at the same development stage as other healthier looking plants. Moats said the GreenSeeker must be programmed to know that it will be dealing with smaller plants that are already at the correct stage of

development for in-crop nitrogen. “The GreenSeeker needs all that information so it isn’t fooled by thinking a plant is at a different stage. It must know for sure what stage the plant is at. And that information comes from the farmer who owns the machine.” Most of the GreenSeeker calibration work in Western Canada has been performed by Guy Lafond and Chris Holzapfel at the experimental farm in Indian Head. They have conducted numerous trials on many crops to calculate the response to different nitrogen levels. They relate that data to the Normalized Differential Vegetation Index to come up with an algorithm that drives the calculations within the GreenSeeker. Calibrations developed for crops in the United States will not work on the Prairies because of differences in hours of sunlight, heat, soil and latitude. Moats said Lafond and Holzapfel now have good calibrations for spring wheat, canola and barley, but winter wheat needs refinement because they can’t use the normal GDD to determine stage of development.

The researchers have also developed new algorithms specific to different soil types on the Prairies. Their algorithms for the dark brown soil zone are different than those for the black soil zone. “You’ll get very good results on spring wheat, canola and barley just as long as you go in at the appropriate stage,” he said. “That’s the key. Get yourself out there with your GreenSeeker at the stage that’s appropriate for the algorithm. If you’re too early or too late, it won’t work. “The machine can’t do everything for you. You are responsible for keeping track of your own GDD information. And you have to make sure you’re within the range of growth stage the algorithm is designed for.” Canola is a good case study. The crop will have too many blossoms and confound the sensors if producers are late getting into the field with their GreenSeeker. If they’re too early, the algorithm isn’t geared for that stage. “You have to get within a fairly small window if you expect it to work. You’ve got to be right on top of things feeding it the right information.”

Moats said farmers’ personal opinions about nitrogen efficiency also influence how they use the machine. A GreenSeeker owner who thinks nitrogen efficiency will be really high in a given year will program the machine to back off on the rates. He also questions whether GreenSeeker owners have any way of knowing if the device is working to its full potential. He said that even after a successful harvest, there is no way for him to know how much more crop could have been grown with the same or less nitrogen. “It’s so sensitive to N requirements. You’re riding down the field and you cannot visually see why it’s calling for more or less N. The variability within one field can be zero to 60 lb., but we cannot see why. “We have absolutely no way of knowing if it can do a better job for us. All we know is that it increases profits. The true potential really remains a mystery. You just have to believe in the technology, because it works.” For more information, phone Lee Moats at 306-738-4716 or visit www.





Plant count vital when evaluating seeding practices Five plants per sq. foot optimal | Fewer plants could mean excessive seeding depth or speed BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Canola growers need to walk into their crops and count the number of plants per square foot, says a Canola Council of Canada agronomist. Doug Moisey, who works in central Alberta, told a recent webinar that fields with insufficient or inconsistent plant densities will generate significantly lower yields. “It’s really critical that we get producers to try and get to that five plants (per sq. foot) or better during the growing season,” he said. According to a survey done by Agriculture Canada researcher Julia Lesson of Saskatoon, many canola growers in Western Canada aren’t achieving five plants per sq. foot. Leeson surveyed 218 canola fields in Alberta last year and found that 34 percent had less than four plants per sq. foot. However, Moisey said most growers don’t know how many plants they have per sq. foot. A canola council survey found that “approximately 75 percent of producers do not do plant counts.” Yantai Gan, an Agriculture Canada scientist in Swift Current, Sask., said a plant count is needed to evaluate seeding practices. For instance, if a grower seeded at nine pounds per acre but only grew 3.7 canola plants per sq. foot, it would mean that seed survivability was low, possibly because the seeds were planted too deep or the seeding speed was excessive. Growers who don’t have plant counts from previous years won’t know how to adjust seeding practices in the future, he added. “Some farmers, they look in their field and they say, ‘yeah, my canola looks OK,’ ” Gan said. “But they don’t

know how good it is.” As part of the flax-canola Canadian science cluster, Gan and his colleagues have conducted field trials at multiple locations on the Prairies to assess the impact of uniform plant stands on seed yield and quality. Based on results from sites near Brandon, Gan found plots with 2.8 plants per sq. foot yielded 25 bu. per acre, while fields with 7.4 plants per sq. foot yielded 37 bu. per acre. Gan said factors that determine how many canola plants will grow in a sq. foot include: • seeding rate • seed vigour • uneven seeding depth Gan advises canola growers to use higher seeding rates, such as eight to nine lb. per acre, but producers often tell him they use six to seven lb. per acre. Moisey said some producers still follow the rule of thumb of five lb. per acre, but that rule is no longer valid. “The five lb. per acre adage doesn’t (hold true) anymore. With bigger seed size, you’re not going to be getting the plant populations you hope.” Gan said canola growers should set a target of 5.6 to 7.4 plants per sq. foot. Last year he and other Agriculture Canada scientists in his project visited about 60 canola fields to count plants and determined that most prairie fields have less than 5.6 plants per sq. foot. “Most out there are between 30 to 60 plants (per sq. metre, or 2.8 to 5.6 plants per sq. foot). A very few farmers were over 60 plants (per sq. m, or 5.6 plants per sq. foot).” Gan seeded plots to achieve a specific number of plants per sq. foot, ranging from 1.9 to 9.3 plants. The scientists then removed a number of

While many canola growers seed the standard five pounds per acre, bigger seed will reduce the plant population so seeding rates should be increased for maximum yields, says an agronomist. | FILE PHOTO plants in each trial with 1.9, 3.7, 5.6, 7.4 or 9.3 plants per sq. foot. That way, they had a control plot with a uniform plant stand and another plot with a non-uniform stand. After evaluating results from 2010 and 2011, Gan determined that uniform stands preserve yields when plant populations are low. “(At) 20 to 40 plants per sq. m (1.9 to 3.7 plants per sq. foot), the uniform plant establishment will increase yield by 11 to 19 percent over the nonuniform plant establishment,” he said. There was minimal difference in yield between uniform and nonuniform stands when plant counts were higher than 5.6 per sq. foot. Gan said fields with varying plant concentrations, or patches of high and low concentrations, generate lower yields for two reasons: • when the population is low, weeds grow in the open spaces between plants and remove nutrients from the soil • plants in low density produced branches later in the growing season. Pods often formed on those branches but they didn’t contain seeds “So the plants are wasting their energy by producing those late em-

Striped flea beetles threat to early seeded canola CAMROSE BUREAU

Canola producers are encouraged to check their fields for striped flea beetles this spring. Striped flea beetles are more tolerant of seed treatments and are more likely than crucifer flea beetles to live through such treatments, said a Canola Council of Canada news release. Striped flea beetles are also gaining territory, especially in central parts of the Prairies. Flea beetles are small leaf-feeding beetles that jump when disturbed and are the most chronically damaging canola pest in Western Canada. An Agriculture Canada study from 2007 to 2011 showed striped flea beetle numbers increasing through Manitoba, central Saskatchewan and central Alberta. They are not always the dominant

mity this summer to collect more data on seed yield and quality. The final results of the study will likely be published in 2013.

erging branches and late emerging pods.” Gan will do one more year of field work on canola plant stand unifor-

species. In southern Alberta, striped flea beetles accounted for one percent of the flea beetle population in 2008, 62 percent in 2009 and back down to four percent in 2010. Striped flea beetles jumped from less than one percent in 2008 to 70 percent in 2011 in the Brooks area of southern Alberta. Striped flea beetles have two orange and tan stripes down their backs, emerge earlier than other species and are a greater threat to earlier seeded canola. It’s estimated flea beetles can cause up to 10 percent crop yield loss and can cause hundreds of millions of dollars damage. Flea beetles fly when the air temperature is higher than 14 C and are most active on warm, sunny, dry and calm days. Farmers are encouraged to scout several areas of a field before making a decision to control the insects.

Herbicide resistance testing pays off Reducing farm guesswork | Tests help farmers select effective herbicides BY WILLIAM DEKAY SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Glyphosate resistant kochia may be detected if samples are sent in for testing before spraying. | FILE PHOTO

Farmers climbing into sprayers to deal with pre-seeding burn off could gain valuable knowledge about weed resistance issues by having the proper tests done. That could pay off in time savings and money by making sure proper herbicides are applied. Saskatchewan’s Crop Protection Laboratory can test weed seeds for resistance to herbicides, which could take the guesswork out of herbicide selection. Doug Pchajek, manager of produc-

tion technology at the lab, said herbicide testing is usually done over winter from samples collected earlier in the year. “They’re just wrapping up the herbicide testing,” he said. He expects results to be published in the government’s Agriview magazine in June. Knowing if weeds in a field or region are resistant to a particular group of herbicides is important to help farmers select effective herbicides. Over time, repetitive use of the same herbicide or herbicides from the same group can promote resistant weeds.

Lab tests are intended to give a rough idea of the presence of resistance in the sample submitted. Here’s how to submit samples to the crop protection laboratory to test for herbicide resistance: Sampling: • If possible collect only mature, healthy seeds from the suspect plants. Green or diseased seed will not properly germinate and will impede the diagnosis or make testing impossible. • At least 1,000 seeds per herbicide group is desirable. When there is a need for several groups of herbicides to be tested, the number of seeds should be increased accordingly. • Collect seeds from specimens that appear to have survived the herbicide application. If other labelled weeds have been controlled in the area there is stronger reason to suspect resistance. • Note the crop from the current and the previous four years, the herbicides used and rates of application, the timing of application, (including the growth stage of crop and the weed), climate conditions at the time of application, the weed’s distribution and level of control. • Do not submit seeds that have been treated with a pre-harvest herbicide. • Indicate the herbicide resistant groups that you want tested. • Include the online herbicide resistance diagnostic laboratory form available online. Packaging and handling • Place seeds in paper bags and allow them to air dry for a few weeks in a dry environment. This prevents mould. • Seeds should be relatively clean with as little foreign material as possible. • Once the seeds are dry, they should be packaged in durable containers including strong plastic bags and then placed in sturdy cardboard containers (or equivalent) before shipping. Notes (For all samples submitted) • Never add water to the samples or the packaging because this will result in rotting, or bacterial or fungus growth. The only exception is for disease samples where viral causal agents are suspected. For these specimens, the sample must be maintained as fresh as possible. • For above-ground parts showing symptoms, wrap individual parts between lightly moistened paper towels and ship to the lab as quickly as possible. • If possible, avoid sending fresh specimens over the weekend. • The information about the sample may be as significant as the sample itself so provide as much information as possible. • Include the correct sample form available at





Organic group honours members ORGANIC MATTERS


2011 outstanding farmers integrate cropping and livestock production


he Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA) Research and Education board (RnE), a respected international organic organization, has chosen Lyle and Robyn Hamann of Regina as this year’s outstanding organic farmers. The award celebrates the expertise and commitment of organic farmers. The Hamanns join an exemplary group of outstanding organic farmers from previous years, including Dwayne Woolhouse of Assiniboia, Sask., Marc Loiselle of Vonda, Sask., Darrel and Marva Holt of Nebraska, Victor and Elizabeth Chrapko of Brosseau, Alta., Danny Rempel of Hodgeville, Sask., and Kevin Beach of Ernfold, Sask. A farmer or farm family is nominated by their OCIA chapter, which is a group of local organic farmers who meet regularly to share cropping and marketing information. Every nominee is already deemed outstanding among their local peers. In the final selection, the winner is deemed outstanding across the entire membership of OCIA International. The criteria for the award include excellence in organic practice, including cropping, livestock and environmental practices, farm safety procedures, food safety and community involvement. The Hamanns excel in each category. They manage Quinella Ranch, only

six kilometres from the original Hamann homestead. The farm was first certified organic in 1995. The Hamanns grow wheat, barley and flax and use yellow blossom sweet clover for soil fertility and alfalfa grass mixes for livestock feed and grazing. They also run 80 head of beef cattle, mostly Blonde d’Aquitaines. Livestock and cropping are well integrated. The usual rotation includes five years of alfalfa and grass forage, which reduces weeds and provides diversity as well as grazing. Forage breaking is followed by wheat, which benefits from the higher nitrogen level. Flax follows wheat while the field is still relatively clean of weeds. Barley is used as a clean-up crop and is under-seeded back to forage. “In my opinion, having livestock in the organic farming system is ideal,” Lyle Hamann said. “You can utilize the forage rotation by grazing or haying, which allows the land to be in forage for a number of years. This method is ideal at weed control, and the natural application of manure is also beneficial as a soil building feature.” Hamann sees forages as a key in his weed control and soil building strategy. “I have found over the years that a lot of weeds can’t compete with forages,” he said. Weed levels, especially Canada thistle and quack grass, increase during the grain years but fall when the rotation returns to forages. Forages also build nitrogen levels and phosphorus availability. They build humus, as does a weed green manure during pasture breaking. Hamann said his methods are not unique. “I simply try to use common sense. Over this many years of farming and farming organically, you soon learn what works and what doesn’t. For me the forage rotation is the key.” Slightly more than a quarter of their

land is in “ecological acres,” which is land left in its natural state. Quinella Ranch has an abundance of natural bush, sloughs, marsh land and native prairie, which provide habitat for water fowl, amphibians, upland game birds, deer, moose and coyotes. “We’re finding an increase of different bird species every year,” said Hamann, who attributes this to not using chemicals and fertilizers, leaving natural areas, and sound management of the woodlots. The Hamanns have been involved members of the organic community. Robyn serves as the administrator of their local OCIA chapter, and Lyle has been involved on the board of the local chapter and of OCIA International and on several of its committees. The Hamanns don’t just go through the motions. They are passionate about what they do. “We have introduced several local farmers to the methodology and practise of organic farming,” he said. “We have spent countless hours at our kitchen table over coffee mentoring (other producers). Personally, I feel that organic farming is not just a matter of following a set of standards but also requires the mental psychology of wanting to produce healthy food while leaving as little an environmental imprint as possible for generations to come. Basic stewardship is not a given right, it’s a privilege. I am always ready, willing and able to talk organic farming with anyone willing to listen.” The strong representation of Saskatchewan farmers in this international Outstanding Organic Farmer award is testament to the dedication of prairie farmers to organic principles, sound organic practice and sharing innovation.

Alberta sale puts youth in spotlight Hands off to adults | The steer and heifer show teaches youth to groom and show cattle BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

OLDS, Alta. — An annual spring event in Olds may be the best deal around for kids who like to show cattle. Canada’s richest Youth Steer and Heifer Show has offered thousands of dollars in scholarships and prizes since it started five years ago. The show attracts youth younger than 21 from across Alberta, and ranges from those who have never led a calf in the ring to seasoned teenagers anxious to build their college funds. It’s not just the money that draws the youngsters: the skills and experience gained over the weekend are also benefits. Show rules keep eager and well meaning parents in the background, said Karen Kent, one of the organizers. “Anyone under 21 can touch and fit. Anyone over 21 can only touch the halter and the tail,” she said. “You want to keep it a family event, but you want to keep it safe.” That attitude was a change for judge Jeff Jackson of Walnut Springs, Texas. Large steer shows offering major jackpots are the norm in the United States and it is not uncommon for professionals to groom the cattle and turn them over to the entrants just before entering the show ring. “Compared to Texas kids, these kids are doing a better job,” he said. Some Texas shows draw 1,200 to 1,500 head, and even though the youth are supposed to do their own work, it is hard to control, he said. This year’s grand heifer winner was

Hereford genome study zeroes in on feed efficient traits BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

The Canadian Hereford Association is leading a three year genomics study to detect feed efficiency traits within the breed. The $945,000 project, which starts this fall, includes Alberta Agriculture, Olds College, Cattleland Feedyards, the University of Alberta and Livestock Gentec. The grant came from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Council of Canada under the College-University Idea to Innovation program.

The work will combine phenotypic and DNA information to find the most feed efficient cattle among 1,000 weaned bull calves, said Gordon Stephenson, manager of the Hereford association. “We eventually hope to develop an EPD (expected progency differences) for feed efficiency for our breed,” he said. The plan is to blend molecular breeding values with EPD for a more accurate predictor of traits such as residual feed efficiency. The association does not have this information.

“Some breeders have attempted to identify bloodlines within their breeding programs on animals that are more feed efficient than others, but this will be the first scientific research study where we will really be able to identify genetics that might have an EPD for feed efficiency,” he said. DNA and ultrasound readings will be collected on every bull, and data will be available at the end of the study. Herefords have a reputation for being low maintenance cattle and tend not to require as much feed to maintain themselves.

“It has something to do with disposition as well,” he said. “We think there is a tie in with disposition.” The study requires 1,000 weaned bull calves that will be placed on feed at Olds College and Cattleland Feedyards in Strathmore, Alta. Each will wear an electronic ear tag for individual identification, and the Grow Safe system will be used to measure how much each animal consumes during a feeding period. About 300 Canadian cattle are needed per year. Project leader John Basarab of

Alberta Agriculture has already conducted considerable feed efficiency research and found it is a heritable trait. The association is also co-operating through the Genome Canada project with the American Hereford Association, a private genetics company, and the University of Iowa to develop a 50K SNP panel that is specific for Herefords. That project will also require information from 1,000 bulls. Genome Canada is profiling 30 influential sires from each of the major breeds. All will be genotyped.





Vet graduate eager to put skills to work Challenging program | The four year course at the University of Calgary combines academic study with practical field work BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Eoin Clancy knew he wanted to be an animal doctor by the age of five. “I thought being a vet would be the coolest thing ever and I just worked toward that,” he said. Clancy and 29 others are members of the class of 2012, the first to complete the University of Calgary’s veterinary medicine program. He planned to join the General Veterinary Hospital in Edmonton May 14, where he will work with small animals in a large practice that offers mentorship, a large case load and surgery. “It is the equivalent of a family care practice for small animals,” he said. The school accepted its first students in 2008, combining academic study with practical work in vet clinics throughout the province. Clancy went as far north as Peace River and as far south as High River. His most challenging work was at the Calgary Zoo. “I saw things there that I never thought I would see. I got up and close with lions. It was one of the more exciting opportunities that we have at UCVM, the partnership with the Calgary Zoo,” he said. Born and raised in Calgary, Clancy earned a biochemistry degree from Queen’s University. He applied to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon and the University of Calgary. The addition of a new school opened the door for him because there are only five schools in Canada with limited enrolment. “Without UCVM, my opportunity to become a veterinarian would have been very limited,” he said. The program was demanding. He thought his biochemistry program was competitive, but it was nothing compared to his last four years of study. “Veterinary school was incredibly challenging. We have put in a huge number of hours,” he said. He survived and has told new students to be prepared to work hard. “It is not something you should enter into lightly. You have to make sure you are committed to learning

and it is something you really want to do because, you know, it is a huge challenge. And it should be,” he said. “I would do it again.” The Calgary program came about following the BSE crisis when the Alberta government recognized a shortage of veterinarians and researchers. The program developed a one of a

kind approach combining academic study with practical work in the field with 50 veterinary practices. While the emphasis is on large animal care, the 30 graduates have found jobs in urban settings as well as mixed practices in the country. Some are pursuing internships for further study, said dean Alastair Cribb, who was charged with build-

ing the program and recruiting faculty. There has been positive feedback from a supportive Alberta veterinary community that is committed to serving as advisers, mentors and teachers. The course involved a combination of technical training along with broad background in the classroom and professional skills development that covered business, communication and ethical studies. “The comments we got was that they were very quick in interacting with the clients and they were able to give them a lot of independence,” Cribb said. “What we did in the program was absolutely committed to the knowl-

edge of veterinary sciences.” All 30 students passed the licensing exam in November, but they are not close to filling the demand for more vets. “In looking at the number of jobs that are still being advertised, it is going to take a number of years to fill that gap,” Cribb said. “It is not going to happen by putting 30 students in.” The program now has about 125 students at various stages of study. The goal is to continue building. “Our focus on the first four years was getting this program running and now we are going to work on refining the program and expanding the research even farther,” said Cribb.


Stress, heat, injury can jeopardize semen quality Some bulls prone to stress | Stressful situations that last several days can reduce testosterone production BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A one-day event isn’t enough to negatively impact a bull’s sperm production, said Colin Palmer of the University of Saskatchewan’s College of Veterinary Medicine. To influence fertility, the event has to occur over a longer period of time, such as a snowstorm or a prolonged bout with lameness or illness. “There’s been a lot of things that could’ve happened to that bull from the time that his semen test occurred just before the sale until the time he is

presented to us,” Palmer told the Farm Animal Council of Saskatchewan’s recent stockperson’s school in Saskatoon. The experience of sorting, trucking and even semen testing bulls isn’t enough to affect an animal’s fertility, he added. “Even if the bull falls down in the chute and gets all wound up, unless he hurts himself in there, it’s not going to affect the semen quality at all.” Seasonal, hereditary, nutritional and puberty-related factors can influence fertility, but stress and heat

are common factors that arise after a fertility test, he said. Both influence the animal in a similar way by slowing its testosterone production. Stressful situations, in which the animal is unable to cope with its environmental demands, inhibit testosterone production because of the influence of cortisol, a stress hormone, said Palmer. He linked these events to injuries, illness and storms lasting three or four days. “Having said that, I do wonder if there are some bulls out there that are more prone to stressful events,

just like some people perhaps driving through the city of Saskatoon on the way to work — that’s a stressful event for them — they might be prone to meltdowns.” He said inguinal hernias and dermatitis can increase the animal’s testicular temperature, which should be cooler than its core. Higher temperatures in that region cause an increase in tissue metabolic rate, leading to oxygen starvation in the testes and less testosterone. “Let’s say that you lost a finger today and we’re going to take you over to the hospital and get that finger sewed

up,” he said. “Most of you know that we’re going to put that on ice and cool it down. That’s going to keep that tissue healthier longer. If the temperature gets too high, there’s going to be breakdown of that tissue.” Most commonly used drugs won’t influence semen quality, with the exception of dexamethasone, but Palmer said the animal will require time to recover once the problem has been remedied. “Be aware that several days, or months perhaps, may be needed for a bull to recover from a stressful event.”





Mineral deficient livestock less productive ANIMAL HEALTH

ison, like cattle, get mineral deficiencies if they do not receive supplements.

An absolute deficiency may take two or more years to develop, but skimping on minerals and vitamin supplementation can lead to poor growth and disease and parasite problems. Minerals are necessary for bone and muscle growth, reproduction and immune and enzyme function. Specific minerals are formulated for bison, but in many cases cattle minerals come close to meeting all a bison’s needs. If there is a need to check a specific mineral status, it is best to do so on liver samples at post-mortem or slaughter. This is much more accurate than sampling blood. Mineral deficiencies are seen in

75 to 95 percent of the feed grown in Alberta and probably Western Canada. Nutritionists assume there are no minerals in the feed when they balance the ration. What is in the feed acts as a conser vative cushion against deficiencies developing. Mineral deficiencies first slow growth and then hurt reproductive rates. Deficiencies are slow to develop, and correcting them is also slow. There is no magic shot to give. Instead, proper supplementation over time is the answer. The cost of minerals is a small price to pay for maintaining a healthy herd. The first thing to calculate is how

much minerals your bison should be consuming. If the recommended rate is 40 grams daily, then a 25 kilogram bag of minerals contains the equivalent of 625 bison days. You could also see it as 30 head of mature bison going through a bag every three weeks or so. This is probably rarely the case. The important point is they are consuming at least some minerals. If the consumption is really low, top dress it in feed whenever possible. Giving twice the daily requirements every two days in feed has worked well in cattle, but bison should be consuming some minerals every two to three days if possible. Minerals in feeders can work, but the feeders must be solid or they will either be tipped over or broken. Bison grow slower than cattle, so we probably have overestimated the requirements somewhat. However, young weaned calves and pregnant cows are the two most critical groups. Bison at pasture are indiscriminate grazers, and this variety of feed helps provide natural sources of minerals. I have seen several types of deficiencies over the years, and in almost every case minerals had been nonexistent for several years. Iodine deficiencies lead to goitre, which causes stillborn or weak calves at birth and an enlarged thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is visibly swollen in the throat, which makes diagnosis easy. Iodine is available in the blue or red salt, and in my experience bison happily lick salt blocks. Standard minerals are 40 to 50 percent salt, which acts as an attraction so the minerals are consumed when the animal actually is craving salt. Copper deficiency can develop in two ways: • an actual deficiency • as a result of excess sulphates or molybdenum in the diet, which will compete with the copper Well water can carry a high level of sulfates, so it is a good idea to periodically check the water supply. Copper deficiency leads to poor growth and bleached hair coats, often with diarrhea and swollen bones around the joints. These swollen joints are the result of enlargements on the growth plates where the long bones grow. Selenium is deficient across most of Western Canada and deficiencies can show up, especially at handling when bison run excessively, resulting in down animals as the muscles are damaged. The condition is called capture myopathy, and it is similar to white muscle disease in beef calves. Both conditions are greatly minimized if selenium is present in the minerals. Minerals will always identify the level of selenium. Many types of deficiencies exist, and one must rely on nutritionists to balance the package in commercially prepared minerals. Formulas are developed to meet the needs of the region, so rely on your local veterinarian, feed mill or agriculturist to determine the best formulation for your area. But remember, any minerals are better than no minerals. Roy Lewis has a veterinary practice in Westlock, Alta. and works part time as a technical services veterinarian with Merck Animal Health.





Saving past by letting go Knowing type of laminitis can determine best treatment, says U.S. veterinarian COWBOY LOGIC RYAN TAYLOR


hen I was growing up, most of our pastures were home to herds of cattle or a small band of horses. But one small pasture, close to home, was occupied by old steel and antique iron. It was a little boy’s imagination play land that was better than most of the systems manufactured specifically to amuse. My pasture play land had old horse drawn equipment, antique cars and tractors and even a jeep. There were all manner of things for a kid to sit on, steer, shift and pretend they were doing something grand in their little mind of make believe. I was always particularly drawn to one large old hunk of iron with pulleys and gears and fly wheels as big across as I was tall. The one big wheel could be turned, which turned another gear and another with teeth and cogs that drove a plunger of sorts, but it was pretty slow motion. Dad always warned me not to stick a finger in there, and I never did. The machine was an old stationary hay baler that used to sit out in the hayfield, a natural resting spot for old stationary hay equipment. However, Dad pulled it up closer to the yard, much to my satisfaction because it completed my playground line-up of horse mowers, horse rakes, cultivators, binders and planters. I knew it was old, but I never knew a lot about its origin. I think it was originally owned by another old homesteading neighbour, who used it to bale hay on our shared hay meadow. The only reason to put hay in little square bales in those days

was to make it possible to load a rail box car to the max and ship it somewhere to sell at a better price. I did hear stories of another stationary baler in our family, on my mother’s side, that I always found interesting. Her uncles had one that they bought second hand in 1912 from a local fellow, who had shipped the baler by rail to Yakima, Washington. Some of the bales were shipped to Hawaii to feed the horses and mules that powered the pile drivers that built Pearl Harbor. The baler came back to North Dakota and was bought by my mother’s uncles to bale hay on the Mouse River meadow. It’s a little brush with destiny in a round about way, but still a story worth telling. Better yet, the baler was made by the Sandwich Manufacturing Company of Sandwich, Illinois. Yup, and the baler had been to Hawaii, which was once called what? The Sandwich Islands. Destiny. I’ve always wanted to see our old baler work, but never seemed to have the time or talent to get it back in working order. So I pitched the idea to a friend with a local threshing show, who had an affinity for fixing up old farm implements. We loaded it up and donated it to the Drake Threshing Show. I hope they can save it for posterity and someday put on an old-fashioned hay baling demonstration for old timers, kids and old-time kids like me. As we pulled that baler away from its resting spot, I felt good knowing it wouldn’t be melted down for scrap, it won’t go unappreciated and sink into the sod and it just might bring more people the joy and wonder I had as a kid in our pasture of old iron. If I get to see it work just once, and get to share that experience with our kids and others, it’ll be well worth the donation. And, yes Dad, we’ll keep our fingers away from the cogs and gear teeth.


Horse owners with animals troubled by laminitis may benefit from videos and webinars by laminitis expert Dr. Donald Walsh. The retired American veterinarian also offers expertise at www.ahf., the site for the Animal Health Foundation that Walsh founded. In a recent webinar, Walsh outlined various types of laminitis, which is an inflammation of the laminae in the hoof that causes the coffin bone in the foot to descend, causing pain to the horse. “Laminitis kills many horses each year in this country, but unfortunately the disease doesn’t kill the horse,” Walsh said in his webinar. “The owner and the veterinarian have to make that decision to euthanize the horse and this can often be a heart wrenching decision for an owner to have to make.” There are several types of laminitis, and Walsh cautioned horse owners to determine which one is affecting their horse before seeking treatment from a veterinarian and a farrier. Researchers have learned in the last five to seven years that in some forms of laminitis are related to abnormal

hormones. Both equine Cushings disease and equine metabolic syndrome (EMS) are related to excess insulin. Horses with EMS are often easy keepers but have crested necks w h e re f at ha s b e e n d e p o s i t e d because of insulin issues that affect blood glucose levels. Walsh said fat is also deposited behind the withers and the top of the rump. Treatment requires a low carbohydrate diet and regular exercise, which will likely mean limiting the horse’s access to grass. Thyroid medication may also be required. “Obesity is on the increase in this country and we see many more horses that are overweight,” Walsh said. “And being overweight is a prelude to insulin resistance.” However, obesity doesn’t necessarily mean a horse is insulin resistant and thus prone to laminitis because other genetic factors are also at play. Other signs include abnormal growth rings on the hoof walls, with rings wider at the heel than the toe. Signs of blood seepage in the bottom of the hoof are also a clue. Equine Cushings is caused by a pituitary abnormality and shows up in long or shaggy hair coats and lack of shedding, even in summer. It can be treated with medication.

OTHER CAUSES OF LAMINITIS • overeating grain • eating too much lush grass in spring and fall • retained placentas • foot damage from working on hard surfaces • any serious illness Walsh recommended horses be given four tests to determine what type of laminitis they have: ACTH (adrenal corticotrophin hormone); an insulin test after fasting; blood glucose level and thyroid. A horse with EMS will have normal ACTH but high insulin, and a horse with Cushings will have a high ACTH and high insulin.

Mill and pasta plant delayed | Quarterly profit drops, but the company says it is set for market recovery

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



Alliance Grain Traders Inc. is tightening its belt in the wake of another poor quarter by delaying its Regina pasta plant project. Canada’s largest pulse processor posted sales of $197.4 million for the first quarter of 2012, down from $231.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Earnings before income, taxes, depreciation and amortization were $6.1 million in the first quarter of 2012 compared to $14.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. “This quarter has certainly been a disappointing one for our company. We collectively see the potential for recovery in the near-term and we firmly believe it will come,” Alliance president Murad Al-Katib told analysts and reporters during a conference call. A number of analysts immediately cut their share price targets for the Regina firm. Shares of Alliance closed at $10.70 May 14, down 14 percent since the close May 9, the day before the results were released. Al-Katib said construction of the company’s proposed $50 million Regina durum mill and pasta plant has been delayed by a year until 2013. The plant was trumpeted by the federal government as proof that the removal of the CWB’s export monopoly on wheat and barley would lead to increased value-added activity on the Prairies. “Obviously the management of Alliance Grain Trader has now done its due diligence and discovered what grain farmers have known for decades — any kind of enterprise in the West faces brutal transportation economics simply because we are so far from any significant markets,” said Bill Gehl, chair of the Canadian

Alliance Grain Traders president Murad Al-Katib admits it has been a disappointing quarter but “sees the potential for recovery in the near-term.” | FILE PHOTO Wheat Board Alliance. “They may have even discovered that with the loss of the wheat board’s single desk, small processors face an even bigger challenge.” Alliance said it is focusing on running its existing assets. The only big capital project on the horizon is the commissioning of the company’s pulse processing and food ingredient facility in Minot, North Dakota. The company’s North American processing facilities have been running at 50 percent capacity and handling low margin products such as whole peas, flax and canaryseed. Al-Katib is confident those plants will be operating at two-thirds capacity during the second half of 2012, processing higher value products such as split and colour-sorted lentils, chickpeas, beans and valueadded peas. Staffing and overhead expenses

have been scaled back, but the company has retained key personnel in anticipation of market recovery in the coming quarters. “You can be sure we’re ready for this,” said Al-Katib. There are signs that India and Turkey could be in the market for pulses earlier than normal because of short crops. There are also pending supply problems in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Myanmar. “Markets are signalling a potential restart of normalized demand,” said Al-Katib. Importers appear to have better access to the capital required to clear cargo than they have had during the past couple of quarters. He believes the second quarter will be a period of transition back to normalized sales. Al-Katib emphasized that the Regina pasta project is still a go.

“Planning and design will continue so we’ll be ready for implementation when we feel the time is right to do so,” he said. In the House of Commons May 14, Pat Martin, New Democratic Party critic on the Canadian Wheat Board file, accused the Conservatives of trying to take credit for the Alliance pasta plant announcement while undermining grain markets with the destruction of the CWB single desk. Alliance cited uncertainty in grain markets for delaying the project. Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz dismissed the idea, blaming European economic turmoil. “Unfortunately with the environment in Europe, their major market is stagnant at this point,” he said. “They have decided to delay movement on the ... processing facility but they look forward to the day when they can put shovels in the ground and put that facility right near Regina.”

Expansion planned for Sask.’s Blue Hills processing plant BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Farmers from Avonlea, Sask., who recently reclaimed 100 percent ownership in their pulse processing plant are expanding the facility.

Blue Hills Ventures bought back Legumex Walker Inc.’s 20 percent share in the Blue Hills Processors (2003) Ltd. plant for $1.8 million. The company is now expanding to bolster its processing capacity. Storage will rise to 15,000 tonnes from

12,000 tonnes and another receiving and bulk loading area will be added. As well, a third cleaning line may also be built and the company hopes to move from a 50 rail car to a 100 car loading facility. It also plans to broaden beyond pulse

crops into durum, canola and flax. “That’s one of the directions we were going into that Walkers weren’t interested in,” said Nelson. The expansion is about one-third complete. The pads are poured and the bins have been bought. Some

have already been installed. Blue Hills wants to see how the post-single desk marketing environment evolves before configuring the remainder of the bins and deciding whether another cleaning line is required.





Biodiesel plant dusts off plans; looks for financing Seeking investors | Biostreet Canada suffered setbacks but rising oil prices give it a new outlook BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Canola growers could have another major outlet for their crop if a large Alberta biodiesel project that has regained its momentum lands the necessary financing. “We’re still alive. We’re still here. We’re still pushing forward the best we can and hopefully we’re going to pull it off,” said Darrel Michaels, president of Biostreet Canada. The company plans to build a 237 million litre biodiesel plant with an attached 500,000 tonne canola crushing facility in Vegreville, Alta.

It would be the second biggest biodiesel plant in Canada, next to the 265 million litre Archer Daniels Midland facility under construction in Lloydminster, Alta. Biostreet had originally hoped to operate the plant by late 2009. “We’ve had a lot of setbacks and we’re still running into problems,” said Michaels. The global recession that began in 2008 and the market uncertainty that accompanied it have been two obstacles, but the biggest blow was learning that the project wouldn’t receive funding from the federal ecoEnergy for Biofuels program.

“That was a huge setback for us because it was worth quite a bit of money. When we found out we didn’t get it, all our potential investors just sort of walked on us,” he said. Biostreet wasn’t the only disappointed applicant. A handful of western Canadian biodiesel projects also didn’t get program funding. “What kept the thing alive was the price of oil started going back up. At $90 to $100 a barrel of oil, all of the sudden we were starting to get some traction,” he said. Biostreet has letters of intent with potential buyers of its biodiesel, although it is too early for official

agreements. It is in discussions with energy and oil company investors. “We’ve had a tough few years here, but we’re getting into some very serious negotiations with some big national and international players that are now taking a very serious look at Biostreet,” said Michaels. Wooing investors hasn’t been easy because Alberta is oil country and oil companies see biodiesel as a competitor. “It’s almost like we’re taking food off their plate,” he said. The strategic partners negotiating with Biostreet want the project to be shovel-ready before they commit to

the venture. Most of that work is complete. The location is selected, all environmental permits are in place and the design basis memorandum is complete. “We’re just about there. All we have to do is the front end engineering,” said Michaels. He hopes to have funding arrangements in place by the end of June, construction started by fall and biodiesel produced at the plant by 2014. The project got $800,000 in provincial and federal grants and $5 million from 300 shareholders, including many Vegreville area farmers.


What is your image and what does it say about you? THE BOTTOM LINE



logans and brands are created with customers in mind, but they can also have a powerful effect on the company itself. In 2007, Kevin Martin and his brothers, Steve and Ken, decided to rebrand the retail side of Martin’s Family Fruit Farm, even though their main business is growing 700 acres of apples and packing for another 15 to 20 growers. They didn’t do it on the cheap. They hired design and marketing professionals to create a new logo, signs, a jingle and a website, and spent heavily on advertising. “We spent more than you could justify on the basis of past sales, but we viewed it as an investment,” says Martin, the company’s president. It worked. Retail sales grew by leaps and bounds, although they still account for only 10 percent of revenues for the Waterloo, Ont., farm. However, the brothers had another goal. Their corporate value statement begins by proclaiming, “we are passionate about what we do,” and emphasizes the need for innovation and responding to customers’ needs. Their website at details “the art of growing a Martin’s apple.” “We were branding what we do and how we do it, rather than branding the apple itself,” Martin says. “I believe you need something that you really feel proud of, something that says who you are, something that you can get excited about.” Excitement had been in short supply in the years before the makeover, both in the Ontario apple industry and at Martin’s. Provincial apple acreage had fallen by nearly half, the rising dollar had slashed export earnings, Chinese apple concentrate had undercut the juice market, and innovation, such as

adopting high-density plantings and new varieties, had been lagging. “The tough years gave us a healthy respect for the fact that nothing is going to be easy,” says Martin. “We learned that you’ve got to be on top of your game, you’ve got to be pushing the envelope, you’ve got to be looking at how you can learn and improve.” He wanted his 60 full-time employees and up to 200 seasonal workers to believe the company they work for is a cut above average. Within the company, they talked about “the Martin advantage” and making excellence the top priority. That’s why the logo, signs and promotional efforts had to be first class. The message wasn’t directed only at customers, but became a visual and constant reminder to employees that things were changing for the better. “I wasn’t sure how we would get there, but I believed this (rebranding) would become the foundation of our business,” says Martin. “We still have a long way to go, but it’s been exciting to go on this journey and see the progress.” Progress is measured in many ways, but one that Martin considers key is a new customer-first focus. “That’s a big part of it. We always ask ourselves what an individual customer is trying to do and how we can help them do that,” says Martin. “It starts with a sense of pride in the whole organization and taking everything we do seriously. Once you have that culture ingrained in the organization, you can go to customers and potential customers and say, ‘we can address your needs. We may not have the answer initially, but we’ll find a solution to any challenge.’ ” For example, Martin’s grabbed one large account by meeting a retailer’s specific requirements for the packaging format. In the packing plant, a new camera system is being installed to replace visual grading. The farm is moving as quickly as possible into high-density plantings with state-of-the-art irrigation and new varieties. The retail side is a hotbed of innovative thinking, whether it’s creating a “limited edition” buzz for lesserknown varieties through its heavy use of Twitter and Facebook or devel-

oping it’s own branded apple products (two are in the works). Excitement and the innovation it fosters aren’t easy to generate, but you can tell when it’s missing. “I wanted a business card that I was proud to have my name on,” says Martin. “I wanted to have something that stands out about us that I could talk about when promoting our com-

pany. I believed we needed something we feel really good about, that represents who we are.” Like it or not, every business, including every farm, brands itself. A message is being sent to customers, suppliers, employees and yourself when the sign by the lane is old and faded, the farmyard is filled with junk and weeds and the office is nearly as

grimy as the shop. Your farm may not need a fancy logo, much less a jingle. But you still need to think about your image and what it says about you.
