Tragedy spurs town to action Community supports victims’ families | Seeding bee is ‘a way of farmers giving flowers’ BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

MOSSLEIGH, Alta. — One of Mossleigh’s primary landmarks is owned by the man the community now mourns. Eric Donovan, 38, who died May 12 in a plane crash along with his 11-year-old son, Wade, and his

friend and pilot Denny Loree, 59, owned the northernmost of three old grain elevators that are the town’s landmarks on Highway 23. Donovan had recently put new siding on the fading elevator, replacing the flaking Parrish and Heimbecker paint with the colours of his trucking firm, EDT. On May 16, Donovan’s family,

friends and neighbours gathered on three quarters southwest of town to finish seeding the crop he had started. Six air seeders, two semis and several tandems stirred the dust under a deep blue sky showing only a few high clouds. With the wind light at about four knots,itwouldhavebeenaperfectday

for Loree to fly his Piper Cherokee. The farmer loved flying and did it often. On the day he died, he was helping Donovan by flying to St. Brieux, Sask., home of Bourgault Industries, to pick up a part for Donovan’s seeder. Wade was along for the ride. SEE TRAGEDY SPURS ACTION, P 3

Animal welfare concerns growing Fast food chains and supermarkets may incite push to open housing


Opposition to sow stalls appears to have reached a tipping point in North America. McDonald’s, Burger King, Tim Hortons, Wendy’s and Safeway have all announced plans in the last four months to eventually buy pork only from farms with open housing systems. The corporate decisions represent a victory for animal welfare organizations in Canada and the United States, which have called for an abolition of sow stalls for more than a decade.

Animal welfare concerns If sow gestation stalls have indeed reached a point of no return, then leaders of Canada’s livestock industry will need to ask themselves a difficult question: should they work more closely with animal welfare advocates in the future or should they continue to fight their campaigns from a distance? Cam Dahl, general manager of Manitoba Beef Producers, said it’s critical to engage the public in conversations about animal welfare. But there’s a big difference between those concerned about animals and those determined to eliminate animal agriculture. “We can’t let the activists be the only ones that are having a conversation with the majority of the public,” said Dahl. “That vast majority in the middle, who we call consumers, are starting to care a lot more about issues like this. That question, where does my food come from, is being asked a lot more frequently.” Dahl said the decision by fast food restaurants and grocery stores to buy pork only from open housing systems is simply their response to consumers. “They’re not doing that out of a feeling of benefiting the greater world. They’re doing it because they think their customers want it.” John Maaskant, an Ontario chicken producer and former chair of the Ontario Farm Animal Council, has a similar view, but he thinks activists get these results through intimidation and threats of bad publicity. He thinks companies are more concerned about image and market share than they are about animal welfare. He added that producers need to meet with food companies and other customers to explain their production methods and choices. “Promoting good animal welfare and continual improvement of animal welfare, based upon the best available information … is very, very important for us to be involved in.” Melissa Matlow of the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) in Toronto admits she is an animal welfare activist and a vegetarian. However, that doesn’t mean she dreams of a day when all Canadians are vegans and all slaughter plants are closed. “I don’t advocate others to follow my lead. I’m very happy with people just being conscientious eaters,” said Matlow, campaigns manager with

Promoting good animal welfare and continual improvement of animal welfare, based upon the best available information … is very, very important for us to be involved in.



the WSPA. She said the divide between animal welfare advocates and livestock producers is overstated. “I think our viewpoints become more polarized in the media because it makes a great story,” she said. “We might have a different definition of what good welfare is, but the intentions are still the same.” Matlow may believe it’s acceptable for Canadians to eat animal protein as long as sows are raised in open housing and chickens aren’t overcrowded, but many vegetarians don’t take that laissez faire approach to meat. Last fall, the Toronto Vegetarian Association ran ads in the city’s subway cars with the image of a Jack Russell terrier and a baby pig and the tag line, “why love one and eat the other?” The WSPA encourages people to eat less meat because it believes the level of global meat consumption is unsustainable, but Matlow said consumers should pay more for meat from livestock producers who farm in a manner that’s kinder to animals. Premiums for humane animal protein are an attractive concept, but Canada’s livestock industry needs to protect itself from downside risk, said Allan Preston, former Manitoba Agriculture assistant deputy minister, veterinarian and operator of a mixed farm near Hamiota, Man. “In an ideal world, you’d like to be able to capture the premium that might be there in the supply chain, by doing A, B, C and D. “But, in actual fact, sometimes it’s more a matter of avoiding the discrimination or the loss of markets by not doing it,” he said. “I’m growing increasingly concerned that we’ll see non-tariff trade barriers based on animal welfare standards.”

Tragedy spurs town into action As they neared St. Brieux, the plane collided with another plane flown by Eric and Joy Jackson of Regina. No one survived. “Because it was the weekend, they thought it would be faster to fly up and get them,” said Reno Bexte, a long-time friend of both Donovan and Loree, who works at P & H in Mossleigh. Inside the crop services centre, a chair in the coffee area is overturned. It’s the chair Donovan used to sit in almost every morning, wearing the sandals he favoured in both winter and summer. His chair faced the door, so he could visit with everyone who came in. What was he like? Every friend and neighbour has the same response to that question: a smile. “He was a practical joker. He was in here every day,” said P & H general manager Monty Beagle. “He was loud and fun and animated,” added Donovan’s neighbour, Nathan Weber, as he filled tanks with fertilizer before last week’s seeding bee began. “Put him in a room of people, he was really a lot of fun.” Besides farming, Donovan was a baseball and hockey coach, member of the Lions Club and drove the bus when local teams needed a hand. Loree had similar qualities. Flying was his passion, as was farming on land he owned near both Nanton and Mossleigh. “Denny enjoyed everybody,” said Beagle, who is also a private pilot. “He was a people person. They were great guys, both of them.” Beagle shakes his head as he ponders the crash. He has since checked the statistics for midair collisions — 29 in the last 50 years. Odds against such an accident are astronomical, he said. Loree’s plane took off that fateful day from the small grass strip just outside P & H. Bexte recalled that one of the two men suggested they stop for coffee but then decided against it. Those 10 minutes would have made all the difference, he said, with tears in his eyes. The local Lions Club plans to set up a trust fund for Donovan’s other three children: Scott, 10, Drew, 6, and Charlotte, 4. The club will also help Donovan’s wife, Bobby, with seed and sod for the area around their recently built farm home. Back in the field, Ken Weber wrestled the auger beneath another truckload of fertilizer and thought about lost friends. “We own a piece of equipment together,” he said about Donovan. “He’s always been a good neighbour. You needed help, he was there. I’m glad to be able to help today.” Loree also had farmland adjoining Weber’s. “It was tough yesterday to see his outfit going,” said Weber, noting Loree’s cousin came out to finish seeding one field. Loree leaves behind his wife, Joan, and son, Mackenzie. Reese Risdon of Strathmore was in the field with his seeder, having just finished his own seeding and helping out another farmer. “Eric was just the kind of guy who would do this for someone else,” Risdon said.

James Palin, left, and Reese Risdon load canola into Risdon’s seeder. The two, along with other friends and neighbours of Eric Donovan, his son, Wade, and Denny Loree, who were killed in a May 12 plane crash, seeded 600 acres of canola on Donovan’s land near Mossleigh, Alta., May 16.

Denny would be the first guy to give you a hand. That’s why he was with Eric, flying him, because Eric needed a hand and that’s who Denny was. IAN DONOVAN COUSIN

Gregg Percival, who helped organize the bee along with Donovan’s cousin, Ian, attended college at the same time as Loree. “I don’t think you could ask for a nicer guy. He did it all and he did it all right,” as both a farmer and a pilot, said Percival. Ian Donovan farmed with Eric until about eight years ago. The two men were close, sometimes mistaken for brothers. The new MLA for Little Bow, who was sworn into office May 15, said he was not surprised at the turnout for the seeding bee. “That’s just what the community is here,” he said. “It’s kind of a way of farmers giving flowers. You don’t know what else to do, other than you’ve got the equipment and you know how to get in, and it’s just one less thing for his wife to worry about.” Ian Donovan’s voice grows husky as he talks about his cousin and his friend. “Denny would be the first guy to give you a hand. That’s why he was with Eric, flying him, because Eric needed a hand and that’s who Denny was.” Loree’s memorial ser vice was scheduled for May 17 at Nanton’s Lancaster Museum, a fitting venue for a pilot. Donovan’s service was held May 18 in Aldersyde.

UN slams Canada’s food policy Hunger in the midst of plenty | UN official says Canada will face ‘tough questions’ BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

The United Nations’ top official on food security issues has condemned Canada for pursuing an export-oriented agricultural policy while millions of Canadians do not have secure access to food. Olivier De Schutter, the UN special rapporteur on the right to food, told a May 16 Ottawa news conference that after more than a week in Canada, he concluded the country has a serious human rights problem that it will have to answer for at the UN. He spent his time in Canada meeting food security advocates, local food supporters, First Nations leaders, food bank officials and the National Farmers Union. De Schutter called for Canada to develop a national food strategy under the leadership of the health minister that emphasizes local food, smaller farms and more emphasis on feeding Canada’s hungry. He criticized Canadian minimum wage, tax and social policy for favouring the rich over the poor. As well, he noted that as many as 900,000 Canadian families use food banks every year. “This is a country where inequalities are increasing and in which the top 10 percent of the population are 10 times more affluent on average than the bottom 10 percent,” said the Belgian academic and local food advocate. “This is a country in which taxes and benefits reduce inequality much less than in most (rich) countries. Today we have a large number of Canadians who are unacceptably too poor to feed themselves decently.” Canada is the first developed country De Schutter has visited to prepare a report dur-

ing his four years on the job. He said he will present his report to the UN later this year, where it will be reviewed by various human rights committees that monitor agreements Canada has signed. “Canada shall face some tough questions, I’m expecting, at the end of 2012 or early 2013 in that context.” Canadian local food advocates quickly embraced the UN report as a call to action for a national food strategy that addresses domestic poverty and hunger. “We need a food policy that says no one goes hungry,” Food Secure Canada executive director Diana Bronson told a May 16 news conference. “We live in Canada. Kids should not be going to school hungry. It’s as simple as that.” Opposition agriculture critic Malcolm Allen quickly embraced the report as a call for a national food strategy based on local needs. “We consider ourselves the food basket of the world but we can’t feed ourselves,” said the NDP MP. Conservative government ministers were quick to dismiss the validity of the report. Immigration minister Jason Kenney said De Schutter should butt out and visit countries where there is real starvation. Health minister Leona Aglukkag, the only

minister to meet the UN envoy, said his recommendations on how to improve food availability in aboriginal and Innu communities were out of bounds. “What I said yesterday was that I was very insulted by the UN rapporteur coming to Canada to study aboriginal people, Inuit, and not come to the Arctic, and to write a report on what is best for me as an aboriginal person from Canada’s Arctic is insulting,” she said in the House of Commons May 17. De Schutter said part of the problem is Canada’s agriculture and trade promotion policies of the past 50 years. “I have heard many concerns about the way agriculture policies have been shaped since the Second World War,” he told the Ottawa news conference. “The result of the shifts that have been encouraged over the years has been that more efforts have gone into promoting export agriculture and boosting the ability of Canada to be competitive on global markets … but much less energy has been put into promoting local food systems,” he said. Local food systems are good, he added, because they contribute to healthy communities, help small farmers and the environment and give urban consumers access to healthy food choices.

Canadians will not be eating road kill if proposed new meat inspection regulations are implemented, government and industry sources say. Federal NDP agriculture critic Malcolm Allen raised the specter of road kill consumption in a May 15 news release. He suggested plans to allow on-farm slaughter of food animals, carcass transport to processing facilities and then entry into the food chain would be dangerous to human health. “First the Conservatives will let private inspectors monitor meat, and now they’re essentially allowing road kill-ready meat into the food supply,” Allen said in an NDP release. Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz called the remarks “wildly irresponsible.” The exchange prompted several agriculture groups to also respond. “It’s not true,” said John Masswohl, director of government and international relations with the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association He said in a May 17 interview that the proposed change would provide another option to livestock producers faced with losses from an injured or wild animal whose condition would not affect meat quality. “We just see it as a win-win scenario. It’s a win in terms of treating the animal properly and not transporting an injured animal. It’s certainly an improvement for the farmer if they choose that that’s the option that works best for their situation, and would have zero impact on food safety.” He said the new regulation would apply in rare cases of on-farm animal injury or distress, and such animals would have to be inspected by a veterinarian before death to ensure food safety. “It certainly isn’t a way to circumvent anything. Your preference certainly would be to send a live, healthy animal for regular slaughter as opposed to dealing in this very inefficient way.” Wally Smith, president of Dairy Farmers of Canada, said his group also favours the regulatory change, which complies with the dairy industry’s new code of practice. “There are instances where, in rare and exceptional cases, I think this policy change would serve us well,” Smith said. He cited a case where a B.C. dairy barn collapsed under snow, resulting in numerous animals too injured to humanely transport yet viable for beef. “This actually streamlines that kind of situation.” The Canadian Federation of Agriculture also issued a news release supporting the proposed changes. However, the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC), the union that represents federal veterinarians working for the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, said the regulatory changes would risk food safety at the same time as budget-cutting measures will see the loss of CFIA veterinarians and food inspectors. “With these changes, there is a greater risk that diseased animals will enter the food chain without timely examination by independent government professionals who are specifically trained for this job,” said PIPSC president Gary Corbett. He said private veterinarians may be predisposed to approve an animal owned by the producer who pays them. As well, they do not have the specialized training of CFIA inspectors. As well, he said animals killed on a farm could be transported up to two hours, without refrigeration, to a processing plant. Masswohl said he had no information on rule change proposals regarding refrigeration but expected there will be opportunity to clarify details before changes are made. “We’re certainly supportive of having a reasoned, fact-based policy debate on this or any other issue,” said Masswohl.





Budget cuts chop spray research funds BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

Agriculture Canada appears ready to cut the pesticide application technology program at its research centre in Saskatoon. Sources within the department have indicated that the program and manager Tom Wolf’s position would be eliminated “on or about April 11,” but no official announcement had been made as of May 17. The news comes as the federal government launches comprehensive budget cutting to reduce the deficit. “Farmers across Canada are divided on many issues in agriculture, but the one issue we all agree on being important is research,” Grain Growers of Canada president Stephen Vandervalk said in a news release. “One example of going the wrong direction is the apparent elimination of (the) pesticide application technology expert. We (farmers) go over our fields pre-season, once or twice in season, and sometimes post-season, making spraying one of our most labour intensive and costly operations on our farm. “There is tremendous support from farmers for this important research work. Not only does it save us money but helps us ensure we are not over applying pesticides in an era when the environment is such a sensitive topic.” Gary McCrea, a farmer and owner of Ag Shield Manufacturing in Benito Man., was blunt in his assessment of the cut. “I think it’s a dumb move. As more producers switch to zero till and direct seeding, spraying becomes more critical,” said McCrea. “Tom is a good resource for producers and his group produces top quality work. They help farmers do their spraying properly, which is critical because we rely on chemicals to protect our crops. “It’s one thing to have the best application technology, but you have to know how to use it. That’s where Tom really excelled.” Bob Wyma, sales manager for Wilger Industries, was caught by surprise when informed of the move. “Can you tell me why there has been no statement or explanation? We’ve heard absolutely nothing,” he said. “This doesn’t affect just Tom and his staff. This is going to have a tremendous impact on farmers. There has been extremely high uptake on the information he’s provided over the years.” Wyma said Wolf would test new technology and provide a non-partisan, third-party evaluation. “That has been very important for all of us in providing the best possible spray technology for producers.” Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz said in an e-mail that his department is changing the way it does business so it can better match what the industry needs to address challenges and maximize opportunities. “We will be focusing on areas where we can have the greatest impact for the sector and support the best balance in the roles for the public and private sectors,” he said. “The decision to move out of spray technology is one example of where industry can take on leadership in applied agricultural research.”

Buyers eye shelter belt centre Indian Head centre for sale | Interested parties visit while government looks for agreement BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

INDIAN HEAD, Sask. — Four interested parties have already arranged to visit the Prairie Shelterbelt Centre in Indian Head as the federal government looks for a buyer for the tree production and distribution facility. Ottawa wants a purchase agreement or partnership in place by Aug. 31. Henry de Gooijer, manager of Agriculture Canada’s Agroforestry Development Centre, told a May 16 public meeting attended by about 175 people that interest has come from commercial nurseries, First Nations and non-profit organizations. An employee buying group is another possibility. Others, which he described as “tire kickers and even a few vultures,” have also had questions about the site. De Gooijer said the site visits will give potential purchasers a better understanding of the facilities but wouldn’t provide specific details. “Three of those groups or parties are at the stage of initiating analysis of a business case,” he said. All are looking at a cost-recovery or profit model. The centre has provided free trees to farmers and rural landowners for 111 years. It costs the federal government $3 million annually, including salaries. Assistant deputy minister Jamshed Merchant said the money is only a small part of Treasur y Board’s decision. The agriculture department was

It will maintain agroforestry research at Indian Head. Merchant said the government, which wants to decrease its footprint, looked at whether the shelter belt program was an appropriate use of taxpayer dollars. “The time is right for the federal government to step out of the business of providing free trees,” he told

the meeting. “This decision is not at all based on the quality of work being done.” Providing trees was critical during the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, said Merchant, who began his career as a soil conservationist. The free trees were incentive for farmers to spend the time and money to establish them and keep them growing. “Over time it became a real question: is this an appropriate role for the government of Canada to be in?” he said.

Lorne Scott, reeve of the Rural Municipality of Indian Head and a former provincial environment minister, said government should have looked beyond economics to the other benefits of shelter belts. For example, species at risk such as ferruginous hawks use the trees. “If we look at birds as a whole, two out of three species are declining and three out of four here on the Prairies are declining,” he said. Carbon sequestration, wildlife plantings and controlling erosion are other important benefits of trees. “This is a broad based public service that can only be delivered by the government,” he said to loud applause from the crowd. Bruce Neill, a former shelterbelt centre manager, said the government should have looked at a compromise rather than cut the centre completely. He said 80 families have been affected. “The decision has been made to terminate (the centre) and to take all the savings out of this one area,” he said. Merchant said it isn’t yet known if the agroforestry staff will remain at the location south of the TransCanada Highway or move to the Indian Head Experimental Farm north of the highway at the town’s eastern boundary. The federal public works department will look after the sale of the buildings, land, equipment and other assets. The federal government will stop funding and operating the shelter by Dec. 31, 2013, regardless of whether a buyer or partner is found by the deadline.

Wheat risk management on hold Higher prices possible as weather becomes an issue BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Kansas farmers wonder what yields they will see when the winter wheat harvest begins in the next week or two. Hot, dry, windy weather is starving the crop of moisture as its heads fill. Dry weather in southern Russia and parts of Australia are also a concern. | FILE PHOTO DROUGHT | U.S. WHEAT YIELDS

Heat, wind scorches Kansas crop Rain below average | Kansas winter wheat crop dying as heat, high winds sap soil moisture CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — The promise of a bumper U.S. hard red winter wheat crop is eroding by the hour as heat and high winds sap soil of needed moisture. Harvest is slated to begin in Kansas late this month, about three weeks earlier than normal. However, fields where once bountiful bushels were predicted now contain only shriveled kernels on parched plants. “A lot of the wheat that looked like 60 bushel (an acre) wheat looks like maybe 20 (bu. per acre) now,” said Dean Stoskopf, a grower in central Kansas. “The wheat is literally dying. It’s turning colours. It is turn-

ing white instead of that nice golden tan.” An industry tour of Kansas the first week of May pegged the state’s average yield at a record 49.1 bu. per acre and put the crop at 403.7 million bu. On May 10, the U.S. Department of Agriculture pegged Kansas winter wheat production at 387 million bu. However, farmers now say the state will be lucky to harvest 325 to 350 million bu. Some fields are so poor that farmers are cutting them for hay and giving up on a grain harvest, wheat experts said. Kansas state climatologist Mary

Knapp said hot and windy conditions were hitting the wheat at a particularly bad time, when normally mild temperatures and good moisture help wheat heads plump up with grain. Temperatures rose to 35 C May 16 and were 27 to 32 C May 17. High winds were making conditions worse. Rainfall so far this month has been only seven millimetres, about 12 percent of normal, according to Knapp. “A lot of the winter wheat producers are in a real critical point of development,” said Knapp. Despite the disappointment,

farmers still see this year’s harvest better than last summer’s droughthit crop that tallied a mere 276.5 million bu.



Producers haven’t hedged most of this year’s wheat and durum crop, but analysts and market advisers aren’t too worried. They think wheat prices are likely to rise in coming months, and farmers who wanted to hedge have probably already done so. “We’re holding off on any new crop contracting, but we’ve got our clients where we need them to be,” said Derek Squair of Agri-Trend Marketing. “We feel things are pretty volatile now, especially on the quality side, and the basis is still pretty wide.” The wheat contracting system in Western Canada is still primitive, with most grain elevator contracts apparently directly connected to individual commercial sales. If a company makes a sale, it will offer farmers contract prices to get the required amount, quality and protein levels, but it will not want to take any more. Companies will also reduce prices to discourage unwanted deliveries. “If they get any sort of volume, their price will drop by 50 cents over night,” said Squair. “It’s not very liquid, and once they’re full they don’t want any more.” These contracts are priced relative to the price on the day when the company made the sale to the end user. That contract price might vary little over a number of days despite the daily variations of the futures market. Brenda Tjaden Lepp of FarmLink Marketing Solutions has noticed the same phenomenon. “On any given day, (grain companies are) either in the market or not in the market, depending on their position,” said Tjaden Lepp. “All this stuff is going to change every day.” That means farmers need to monitor elevator bids daily if they are thinking of selling. Prices can rise or fall quickly and don’t necessarily match the futures price. Charlie Pearson of Alberta Agriculture said most grain companies are offering contracts for specified grades and protein levels of wheat, but farmers can also try to negotiate prices for what they are most likely to produce. “There may be a bit of room for negotiation,” said Pearson. “It may not be the official specificaCONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

As well, there is substantial production risk now and there is a good chance of a rally this summer. “We’ve been keeping back another bullet ahead of harvest in case we get a rally,” she said. Squair said his company had earlier recommended using put options if farmers wanted to move higher than 25 percent sold, which was attractive when prices were higher during the winter. At the time, prices were offering a net margin of $70 per acre, so farmers could buy a put option equivalent to about $10 per acre that would protect them from a slide in prices but wouldn’t expose them to production risk. “Let’s spend $10 of that today on a put option and protect $60 of net margin and go to 50 percent sold,” Squair said about his winter recommendations.

It was a getting a little dry in northern Iowa as this was written May 18, and private forecaster T-Storm Weather LLC was forecasting above normal temperatures for Iowa, Illinois and Indiana, the heartland of the U.S. Midwest. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s forecast of a national average of 166 bushels per acre for corn is a record and well above the normal trend. The USDA noted the benefits of early seeding to yield prospects, but that optimistic forecast will have to be reined in if the heat and dryness continue into June and July. However, the main action last week was in wheat markets. Chicago December wheat futures rose 14 percent on dry weather in key production regions, the biggest weekly gain in 16 years. That strength was made more impressive by the fact that the anxiety over the eurozone’s debt problems pressured most other commodities lower. However, we must remember it is only May, which is a little early to be writing off crops, even winter seeded ones. Still, the wheat market looks better than it did a few weeks ago.

Kansas The winter wheat crop has headed and is turning colour, three weeks ahead of normal because of an unusually warm spring. Just a couple of weeks ago an industry tour of the state presented an optimistic yield forecast, but it has been dry since then and the condition has deteriorated. The tour two weeks ago pegged the Kansas crop at 11 million tonnes, but now estimates are falling to 8.8 to 9.5 million tonnes.

Areas around the Black Sea have suffered from hot, dry weather in recent weeks. Ukraine’s production had already suffered because of weather problems in the winter, and Bloomberg reports that the recent hot, dry weather threatens 30 percent of the remaining crop. The USDA already forecasts that Ukraine will produce only 13 million tonnes of wheat in the new crop year compared to a bumper 22.1 million in 2011-12. Ukraine received some rain last week, but it didn’t reach into Russia. Russia’s Institute for Agricultural Market Studies cut its all-crop outlook to 91 million tonnes from 93 million because of the wheat crop’s reduction to 54 million from 56 million tonnes. A Russian government spokesperson said it would likely cut its outlook in a week or so. The USDA’s current forecast for Russian wheat production is 56 million tonnes, similar to last year’s crop. However, drought reduced the crop to 41.5 million tonnes in 2010-11. That drought was widespread, reaching into Siberia. This year’s dryness is focused in the area east of the Black Sea, which traditionally provides most of the country’s exports. Analysis group SovEcon also noted that subsidized rail rates that helped move grain west from Siberia will end in June, making it difficult to backfill

Farmers Down Under are seeding their winter crop. April moisture in Western Australia, the country’s largest wheat producer, was below normal and May has also been dry. A spokesperson with CBH, the state’s largest grain handler, told Bloomberg that farmers will wait for showers before resuming seeding. Acreage could be reduced if rain does not come or arrives too late. Meanwhile, the Australian Oilseeds Federation said that a lack of rain is also a problem on the east side of the country, in New South Wales and Victoria. Canola emergence is spotty. This caused the federation to take a conservative view of 2012 canola production, forecasting it at 2.965 million tonnes, down from last year’s 3.185 million despite an increase in seeded area. The federation is more pessimistic than other forecasters. The USDA pegged Australian canola output at a record 3.25 million tonnes, while the Commonwealth Bank of Australia sees 3.2 million tonnes. Some weather forecasters believe the current neutral situation in the Pacific Ocean will rapidly shift into an El Nino, and that usually brings dry weather to Australia.

Meal demand, tight supply supports oilseed prices Corn oil supply rising | Shifts in grain supply increase meal demand BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Soybean prices that for years were propped up by strong global oilseed demand are now deriving strength from another commodity. “The meal market is just on fire,” said Pete Meyer, agricultural commodities analyst with PIRA Energy Group. High corn prices and prospects of a short wheat crop in Russia and other Black Sea countries is creating huge demand for the feed ingredient and the soybeans from which it is made. “The meal component of beans is driving this thing nuts. There are guys out there that just can’t get enough meal,” Meyer said. That makes him optimistic that soybean prices could move higher than $15 per bushel, lending continued strength to canola and other oilseeds. However, his optimism is dampened when he looks at the spread between soy oil and soy meal prices. “There just isn’t the demand out there for the oil as much as there is for the feed content of a crushed bean,” he said.

With less feed wheat available, livestock producers are using more soybean meal in their rations. | FILE PHOTO “It doesn’t seem like the consumer demand for vegetable oil is there like it was two years ago.” He can’t figure out what’s behind the slumping demand for soy oil, other than the surging popularity of corn oil. Meyer said the chief executive officer of Smithfield Foods recently told him that feeding distillers grain to livestock is a challenge. That has prompted corn ethanol manufacturers to invest in technol-

ogy that squeezes oil out of the DD Gs, which has become an extremely profitable venture. “Corn oil is making the rounds here pretty hard in the U.S. and you’re going to see more and more of that,” said Meyer. Some ethanol plants are making a 300 percent return on their investment in one year. “These guys are going to be all over it,” he said. Meyer said soybean supplies are

going to be tight until the next South American harvest next spring. “The crop in Brazil and Argentina is definitely smaller than what people are saying and they’re definitely going to run out,” he said. Drew Burke, chief financial officer of Bunge, confirmed that during a presentation he gave to investors attending BMO Capital Markets’ 2012 Farm to Market Conference. He believes Brazil only has enough product to crush into oil and export as seed until August, while it normally would supply markets until well into the U.S. harvest. “That means the U.S. is going to have to pick up a big part of the world demand starting in the October period through March.” The United States will then sell out of product toward the end of March, before the South American harvest in April-May. Supply is going to be tight, which is why the world needs big soybean crops from Brazil and Argentina in 2012-13. Burke is confident that will happen. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is forecasting 55 million tonnes of production in Argentina and another 78 million tonnes in Brazil for a total of 133 million tonnes, 24 percent higher than the estimate for the 2011-12 crop. Meyer has spoken to Brazilian

farmers who intend to plant soybeans from lot line to lot line this fall. “There is no question that there’s going to be big beans,” he said.

Canadian potash may ease China corn shortage PotashCorp. | Company expects both China and India to increase potash imports BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The growing gap between China’s corn needs and its domestic production could be narrowed if growers applied more potash, says PotashCorp. And that appears to be happening. China imported 1.9 million tonnes of the nutrient during the first quarter of 2012, and sales have been brisk in the second quarter. “The Chinese know they need to catch up after a few years of falling behind on their potash application,” PotashCorp. president Bill Doyle told investors attending BMO Capital Markets’ 2012 Farm to Market Conference. Chinese farmers have been applying significant amounts of nitrogen to their corn crops but skimping on potash. Doyle said there is a big opportunity for China to boost yields for a key commodity that is increasingly in short supply. One of the burning questions in the grain industry is how much corn China will import in 2012-13. That is expected to have a big impact on corn and other crop prices. Industry estimates range from a low of two million tonnes to a high of 12.5 million. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is forecasting seven million tonnes, up from five million tonnes in 2011-12. China’s future corn imports could depend on its potash imports. Doyle anticipates continued good movement of the commodity to China during the second half of 2012 as growers address soil nutrient deficiencies. “Are they going to import potash or are they going to import corn? I say both,” he said. Farmers could also benefit from increased potash use in India, where Doyle said the ratio of nitrogen to potash application is out of whack. “This is one of the key reasons (India’s) yields are approximately one-quarter of those achieved in the United States,” he told investors. India’s potash purchases have dropped in each of the last two years. The country’s growers had been making progress on their nitrogento-potash ratio, getting it down as low

as 4.7 to one in 2010. Last year the ratio jumped to higher than six to one, primarily because of a delay in potash contract negotiations. This year Doyle estimates it will fall somewhere in the range of 6.5 to 6.8 to one. “That’s going to affect yields in India,” he said. A short crop would put more inflationary pressure on food prices, which is a politically sensitive issue in India. “It’s a lot more efficient to import potash than it is to import food,” said Doyle. India is the main reason why global potash consumption has dropped below the long-term trend of three percent annual growth during the last couple of years. “We think 2013 is going to be a big rebound year in potash in India because they just can’t keep doing what they’re doing, and they know that,” he said. Another factor behind slumping potash sales is the “destocking” practices of dealers, who are increasingly afraid of getting caught holding high-priced product if markets drop. Dealers acted cautiously in early 2012, reducing their inventories to the point that it caused a North American fertilizer shortage. “Demand has picked up significantly in the second quarter and we expect that will carry into the second half of the year,” said Doyle. He believes there will be plenty of fall demand for potash in North America, despite a U.S. Department of Agriculture forecast of a record 14.8 million tonne corn crop in 201213 based on yields of 166 bushels per acre. A large corn crop could decrease prices, which could in turn reduce corn acres next year and lower demand for potash. “I think the USDA has this set up for perfection at the moment,” said Doyle. The fortunes of the U.S. corn crop depend heavily on June rain. Doyle said the USDA predicted an average yield of 164 bu. in 2010, but it came in at 152 bu. Even if U.S. growers har vest a record crop and corn prices fall to $4

PotashCorp. president Bill Doyle says it is more efficient to import potash than import food, so the company is anticipating a rebound in demand. | FILE PHOTO per bu., he said, it would still be profitable for growers to spend money on fertilizer for next year’s crop. Doyle anticipates a rebound in global potash demand starting next year. History shows growth may even exceed the trend line for the next few years as growers compensate for two years of nutrient neglect. PotashCorp. has been gearing up for increased global food and fertilizer demand. In 2003, it embarked on a massive $9.7 billion expansion and debottlenecking project at all six of its Canadian potash mines. Three-quarters of the capital has been spent and five of the nine projects are complete. Most of the projects will be complete by the end of the year. Operational capacity will balloon to 17.1 million tonnes of annual potash production, up from 10.11 million tonnes when the project started. Doyle has heard of 62 other potential potash mine projects considered around the world. “We see no more than a handful of those coming to being,” he said. He is tired of hearing about new potash mines that will be up and running by 2015. “It is humorous to me at the very least because it’s just not possible.” Doyle said brownfield, or expansion, projects typically take more than seven years to complete, while greenfield, or new mine, construc-

IMPORT CORN OR POTASH? China’s corn imports exploded the past two years. Traditionally a corn exporter, the Asian giant is having trouble keeping up with demand despite rising domestic production. The U.S. Grains Council believes there is potential for Chinese corn imports to grow to 10 to 30 million tonnes over the next several years. However, the need to import might be offset if China can increase its corn yields. Potash Corp. notes China’s nitrogen to potash consumption ratio is well off the the level needed for optimum yields. If China raised potash application levels to scientifically recommended rates, it would double or triple the country’s potash needs. Potash Corp. suggests it is cheaper to import potash than corn.

tion is far more daunting. It takes three years just to put a shaft in the ground. “We don’t see a lot of these talkedabout projects coming to fruition,” he told investors. Another factor working against new projects is Saskatchewan’s

superheated economy. The price of steel, concrete, copper and labour are all on the rise. “Between 2013 and 2015, Western Canada is going to have a big labour crunch. You’re going to see a lot of inflation on the labour side,” said Doyle.

New crop buying should soon breathe life into ICE wheat futures BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Canada’s wheat market isn’t necessarily in trouble, says a senior Canadian grain company executive. New crop wheat contracting is sluggish and the use of ICE Futures Canada’s spring wheat and durum contracts is negligible, but Keith Bruch, vice-president of operations at Paterson GlobalFoods, said it’s more a reflection of commercial conditions that are on the verge of

changing. “It’s been relatively quiet,” Bruch said. “We’ve got buyers who are bearish and waiting for the crop to develop and values to develop.” Bruch said most overseas wheat and durum buyers purchase only two to three months before they need supplies to arrive, so most commercial activity has been with old crop supplies. New Japanese wheat tenders will soon be announced, which will

begin the real new crop commercial marketing year. “That’s when we’ll see the true open market start to trade,” said Bruch. Canadian grain companies generally haven’t been taking long or short positions on new crop wheat, so they have not been aggressively buying or selling wheat w ithout making matching buys or sells on the other side. Wheat values are twitchy and no one wants to be overexposed. “The market’s very volatile. The

protein values are very volatile. The spreads are volatile. So there’s considerable risk with taking sizeable positions,” said Bruch. Farmers are also antsy about locking in prices in new crop wheat and durum contracts when there are still many unanswered questions about the future of prairie grain marketing. “We have producers who are waiting for some clarity as to the crop size and quality, on grade spread values,” Bruch said. “Also, I think everybody is waiting

for arrangements between grain companies and the wheat board on pool deliveries.” As well, the lack of trading in ICE Futures Canada’s new spring wheat and durum contracts isn’t necessarily a sign that they won’t work. Without commercial activity to hedge, the basis for most trading hasn’t existed. “There hasn’t been a huge amount of action anywhere on the Canadian cash side. It’s only a small part of the Canadian crop that’s been traded, so there’s still time,” said Bruch.








The U.S. cattle on feed report May 18 had a bigger April placement decline than expected. Cattle on feed May 1 were 11.482 million, down one percent from last year. The trade expected an increase of 0.3 percent. April placements fell 15 percent from a year ago versus a 12 percent average decline expected by analysts polled by Reuters. The market also expected to find support from a higher-thanexpected marketing figure of 1.815 million. The trade expected 1.778 million.



Buying for U.S. Memorial Day weekend cookouts caused hog prices to jump higher. Slow farmer deliveries also supported hog values. As well, the weaker loonie is helping prices in Canada. Iowa-southern Minnesota live hogs rose to $64 US per hundredweight May 18, up from $57.50-$58 May 11. U.S. pork carcass cut-out values were $81.48, up from $80.55 May 11. The U.S. federal weekly slaughter was estimated at 2.12 million, up from 2.09 million the previous week.

The Canadian Bison Association said grade A bulls in the desirable weight range were $3.65-$3.90 Cdn per pound hot hanging weight. Grade A heifers were $3.60-$3.90. Slaughter cows and bulls averaged $2.40-$2.60.

Beaver Hill Auction in Tofield, Alta., reported 618 sheep and 368 goats sold May 14. Wool lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $230-$255 per cwt., 70-85 lb. were $210-$240, 86-105 lb. were $170-$210 and 106 lb. and heavier were $145-$169. Wool rams were $65-$81 per cwt. Cull ewes were $56-$70 and bred ewes were $250-$320 per head. Hair lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $220-$250 per cwt., 70-85 lb. were $207-$235, 86-105 lb. were $170$210 and 106 lb. and heavier were $140-$168. Hair rams were $65-$80 per cwt. Cull ewes were $64-$79. Good kid goats lighter than 50 lb. were $235-$280. Those heavier than 50 lb. were $225-$300 per cwt. Nannies were $63-$85 per cwt. Billies were $50-$147.50. Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported 1,206 sheep and lambs and 72 goats traded May 14. All classes of sheep, lambs and goats sold actively at steady prices.

markets now trade for 17 hours. CME said it was working with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to implement the new hours. The CFTC will perform a required 10-business-day review of the change. CME’s plan is a response to rival ICE’s launch of 22-hour electronic trading in five major grains. The longer hours appealed to many funds and big traders eager

for greater market access and the chance to trade on key government reports. But CME’s core agricultural constituents criticized the plan. Grain firms are worried that the expanded hours will increase volatility by keeping markets open when monthly U.S. Department of Agriculture crop reports are released early in the morning. USDA officials say they are considering whether to change the time of crop report releases.

While other commodities fell on global economic uncertainty last week, stable U.S. cut-out values and strong retail beef movement supported cattle prices. The weaker loonie helped lift Canadian prices. Canadian packers appeared eager to acquire cattle ahead of the holiday-shortened week. The Canfax fed steer average was $112.22 per hundredweight, up 63 cents, and the heifer average was $111.35, up 50 cents. Dressed sales were $188-$190 delivered. Market-ready supplies remain relatively current. Canadian cattle sold to the United States were priced on the five-state average and cash-to-grid deals. Volume sold totalled 20,952, down 19 percent from the previous week. Weekly fed exports to May 5 totalled 6,701 down 28 percent from the previous week. Larger market ready supplies coming down the pipeline will likely keep a cap on fed prices.

COWS STRONGER D1, D2 slaughter cow prices rose almost $1 per cwt. and D3 cows climbed $1.50. Non-fed volumes at auction continue to make up a significant portion of the weekly market offering. Rail prices rose slightly and traded from $150-$155 per cwt. Fleshy D4 cows saw some discounting while lean cows traded higher on good demand.

Stronger beef prices and demand for holiday cookouts lifted fed cattle prices. Butcher bull prices were up 29 cents per cwt. this week with an average price of $90.56 per cwt. Cow marketings should be steady to slightly larger for the rest of May, but strong North American grind demand will support prices.

FEEDERS SLIGHTLY STRONGER Feeder cattle prices generally rose 36 cents per cwt. Strong feed grain prices appear to have capped light stocker prices, and 500-700 pound feeders fell $1-$2. Feeders 600-700 lb. were steady, while those heavier than 700 lb. rose $1-$2.50. Auction volume was down 10 percent at 18,080 head. Weekly exports to May 5 were up 22 percent. American interest in Canadian feeders is expected to rise.

Producing livestock involves educating consumers


he time is long past when farmers and ranchers could write off activists working against animal agriculture as members of the lunatic fringe. Livestock producers today have largely acknowledged threats to their livelihood and ability to contribute to the food supply. Now action must follow that acknowledgement. Recent announcements by fast food companies and grocery stores show that farmer and rancher assurances to “trust us” in matters of animal handling are no longer enough to satisfy consumers who think farm animal care should be similar to pet care. That’s not a criticism of either livestock producers’ defence or consumers’ opinions. It’s simply the new reality. And it means that producers have to engage the public in conversation about animal agriculture at every possible opportunity. Think back to news coverage about McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King announcements to seek pork from farms that don’t use gestation stalls. Did it include information about the advantages of these stalls? Did producers too easily cede ground to companies that make decisions based on market share and public relations rather than animal care and welfare? U.S.-based animal agriculture advocates Kevin Murphy and Mike Smith think the livestock industry is wrongly giving up its social licence to produce food. “The day that gestation crates and battery cages disappear from barns will be only the beginning,” they wrote on the Truth in Food website. “The attack will only pivot to the next question of morality deemed unacceptably old-fashioned by HSUS (Humane Society of the United States) and its moral allies.” Murphy and Smith also criticize agriculture’s reliance on science to explain and defend production practices, saying many consumers are scientifically illiterate and not interested in being educated. Telling people to educate themselves only alienates them by trivializing their

thoughts and opinions. However, science cannot and should not be ignored in any discussion about livestock production and animal welfare. New codes of practice for livestock are vital to agriculture’s ability to explain its practices and hold producers to account should they fail to provide adequate care. The content of these codes should be widely publicized, in plain language, and producers must be able to comply with and explain them. It is easy for any of us to become confused by conflicting information and misinformation. Science is the basis of animal agriculture, but on its own it won’t sway consumer opinion that’s based on the latest animal abuse video or “wellness” ads that say brown eggs from freerange hens are healthier. The discussion about animal agriculture has shifted to morals and values. The New York Times recently ran an essay contest on “why it is ethical to eat meat.” The question wouldn’t have been asked 50 years ago, when people were more closely associated with food sources and familiar with agricultural practices. The NYT contest was widely criticized, but it showed the depth of emotion that now surrounds consumer attitudes toward animal agriculture. So what is the appropriate livestock producer response to it all? It’s talk. It’s action. It’s engaging people in conversation, through social media and in print. There are physical, economic, moral and ethical reasons to produce meat and eat meat. Producers need to think about those reasons and then be prepared to explain them. Any time. All the time. “If you’re not at the table, you’re part of the meal,” says John Maaskant, former chair of Ontario Farm Animal Council. “If we don’t deal with this threat, this problem, this difficulty, our livelihoods are at stake. So it’s not like we have a choice here.” Bruce Dyck, Terry Fries, Barb Glen, D’Arce McMillan and Joanne Paulson collaborate in the writing of Western Producer editorials.

Right to food a matter of government commitment to reduce poverty NATIONAL VIEW



hen a young reporter began to cover the prairie grain industry some decades ago, he was quickly introduced to a funny and accurate description. Grain was 13 percent protein and 87 percent politics. So it is with food policy these days. Olivier De Schutter, the United Nations special rapporteur on the right to food, was in Canada last week

to report on and condemn the dismal and embarrassing fact that in a country as cash and food rich as Canada, as many as three million struggle to have access to adequate nutritious food. The Conservative government was quick to dismiss the Belgian’s visit, weighted as it was to meetings with local food advocates, small farm representatives, food bank executives and poor remote First Nations communities, as a political visit intended to fulfill a pre-determined agenda. To his credit, De Schutter quickly and happily confirmed the political nature of his decision to make Canada the first developed nation to be investigated. “Of course the right to food is about politics,” he told an Ottawa news con-

ference. “It is a matter of principle and political will.” Indeed, that is true. While poverty is relative and hunger is a complex issue, world governments have never made the commitment to back up their laudable promises to fight hunger with concrete plans and funding. The existence of hunger and food insecurity, while often a complicated issue, ultimately is a political decision. A war on hunger or poverty simply has never been as sexy as a war on drugs, terrorists or whatever. Later, De Schutter affirmed that his bias is toward local production and programs to help the poor receive adequate affordable food rather than agriculture that promotes exports to countries that can afford to buy it. However, he said his role was not to

condemn but to expose, hoping that Canadians will rise up when they see the evidence of food insecurity in a land of plenty. “The purpose of the mission was to provide Canada with a picture of itself,” he said. “My role is to help countries identify blank spots in public policy, areas that they would prefer to ignore because it is more comfortable to do business as usual. I am a mirror.” He expects his criticisms of Canada’s policy bias toward larger farms and an export-oriented agricultural policy will produce probing questions for Canada’s representatives at the United Nations. Undoubtedly it will and it should. De Schutter’s report was impressive, given his short time in Canada. He grasped quickly some history, the

complexity of federal-provincial relations and Canadian policy. However, his analysis would have been more credible if he had not been so much a captive of one side of the food argument — the small farm, local food, anti-Conservative side. As an example, his main farmer meeting was with the National Farmers Union and from that meeting, he included criticisms of the end of the CWB monopoly and what he said was a weakening of Canadian Grain Commission inspection standards. Of course, those changes have not yet been produced and that interpretation is just one side of the argument. Still, De Schutter’s report should get Canadians thinking about food insecurity in a nation of plenty. Sadly, it probably won’t.





Where art thou strong and viable CWB?

Summer forecast is anyone’s guess



o here we are, a little more than 60 days from the end of the orderly marketing of wheat and barley in Western Canada. When July ends, so do the marketing advantages of the real Canadian Wheat Board. Of course, those that have made careers of mindlessly bashing the board at every turn are pleased. But what about the rest of us? You know, the majority? Despite the endless hype from federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz and the long line of grain companies that pledged to play nice with a voluntary board, only one company has signed a handling agreement with the board at the time of writing. In July of last year, the farmer-led CWB sent a letter to Ritz outlining six points that we needed the government to think about if it was serious about trying to maintain some kind of voluntary board. Those six points included: • Government willingness to be the initial owner of a new entity that has a share capital structure. Under the circumstances, and in view of the short time frames, a new entity would be unable to become operational under any other ownership structure. • An appropriate exit strategy would have to be put in place to enable the government to divest its shares in a new entity in due course. • Government willingness to ensure regulated access to country and

Farmers who support the Canadian Wheat Board should fight back by supporting groups opposed to its elimination, says Friends of the CWB chair Stewart Wells. | FILE PHOTO port terminals to ensure competitively priced access to these facilities with service levels that would enable third parties to compete effectively. • Government willingness to provide a new entity regulator y authority to direct its own grain to port terminals of its choosing. Our concerns didn’t come out of thin air. They came after years of planning and looking at different options under which the CWB could continue to operate and add value for

prairie farmers. The minister’s response to the issues we raised in the points above? After a delay of several weeks, the minister rejected these issues with one sentence in a return letter saying that our issues “appear inconsistent with an open and competitive grain market.” Instead of acting responsibly, the government then went on to publicly insult the elected directors as individuals, the staff and CWB as an organization.

And, on Oct. 18, the minister illegally introduced legislation that ended any elected farmer oversight and control of the CWB. As for the minister’s creation, the Conservative Wheat Board, it is the opposite of strong and viable. The recent announcement that the new temporary board would cut its staff by more than three-quarters shows just how untrue the minister’s statements have been. No asset-less, start-up grain company is strong or viable when it has to rely 100 percent on its competitors for its day to day operations. Organizations like the Friends of the CWB, the Canadian Wheat Board Alliance, the Producer Car Shippers of Canada, the former elected directors, the National Farmers Union and others are fighting back. In 2007, the Harper government tried to illegally remove barley from the jurisdiction of the CWB. The Friends of the CWB and the CWB itself forced the issue into federal court and prevailed. A peer-reviewed analysis by U.S.based economists that had access to the CWB books showed that our court action has put an extra $428 million dollars into the pockets of western Canadian farmers since 2007. We did it then and we can do it now. Don’t settle for less. Support the Friends of the CWB and settle for more. Wells is a former farmer-elected member of the C WB board and current chair of Friends of the CWB.


Plan ahead, stay informed to reduce risks HURSH ON AG



t’s a volatile and unpredictable world. For agriculture, that means there’s big money to be made or lost. In recent years, grain prices have shown the ability to rise rapidly and fall back even faster, but the input side of the business is also volatile. Just look at fertilizer prices. Urea, 46-0-0, has increased by roughly $300 a tonne in the past couple months. If you waited until just before seeding to buy, you’re faced with a price tag in the $900 a tonne range. Failing to buy early has been a costly mistake this year. On some large operations, the price difference adds up to more than $100,000. The

cost of extra on-farm fertilizer storage could have been paid almost entirely by this one-time price rise. Fertilizer has long been prone to price gyrations, but a 50 percent increase just before seeding is amazing. Of course, hindsight always has perfect vision. Buying early isn’t always the best choice. In the late summer and fall of 2008, many analysts were predicting a continued rise in fertilizer prices that were already record high. If you didn’t buy now, the price was going to be even higher in a few months, if you could get any at all. Some producers bought highpriced fertilizer but didn’t lock in the correspondingly high new crop prices that were also available, particularly on canola. When grain and oilseed prices dropped, fertilizer eventually followed. Trying to be proactive and ahead of the curve proved costly if you didn’t have both sides of the equation covered. We used to think nitrogen was closely correlated to the price of natural gas, its main feedstock. In recent times, we’ve learned that

fertilizer supply and demand governs the price irrespective of manufacturing costs. To a lesser extent, this is also true for gasoline and diesel. And we should no longer take the supply of anything for granted. As a major oil producing and exporting nation, it’s logical to assume that we’ll never have a domestic petroleum shortage. However, in the past six months, diesel has sometimes been rationed at card lock stations. A diesel shortage has never been widespread at seeding or harvest, but a problem at a refinery or some other hiccup in the supply chain could leave farmers scrambling during the growing season. Despite modern communications and worldwide trade, there seems to be more shortages of the common items needed to run a farm. For instance, it can be difficult and timeconsuming to get certain sizes of farm implement tires. And it’s dangerous to assume that a particular herbicide, fungicide or inoculant is going to be readily available just when you want it. Recent years have seen product shortages of

everything from Reglone to glyphosate. It’s a global economy with every event having far-reaching ramifications. Major international companies crash and burn, nations teeter on the brink of bankruptcy and political unrest disrupts trading patterns. On top of this, superimpose natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods. Traditionally, we’ve worried about grain prices too low to cover our costs of production. In the future, we may have to decipher the ramifications of crop prices that occasionally spike to dizzying heights. While that may sound like farmer utopia, sky-high grain prices cause all sorts of ripple effects that create winners and losers. The only safe prediction about the future is that volatility will continue and probably increase. Planning ahead and keeping an ear to the ground has never been more important.

he long-range summer forecasts are coming out, like the lilacs on the trees, but I don’t know how much faith to put in them. Remember last winter’s forecast? It was supposed to be nasty, cold, brutish and long. It was actually fairly nice (unless you grow winter wheat), warm, dry and relatively short. Everyone asked, how did they get it so wrong? Turns out it was largely that the unusually high jet stream fended off Arctic air flow and La Nina did not entirely do her cooling job. Whatever it was, pretty much all the forecasts were off by a spectacular margin. So, here we go with summer forecasts, sprinkled liberally with salt. Are we awaiting a hot summer? AccuWeather came out with its Canadian forecast May 14, with half of British Columbia, all three prairie provinces, most of Ontario and the north under a big above-normal umbrella. “Based on current and past surface observations, analogs and computer model data, indications are strongest for a very warm to hot summer across the southern Prairies,” wrote forecast author Brett Anderson. If you look at Environment Canada’s temperature anomaly outlook map, about 90 percent of the country is painted bright red, signifying above normal temperatures for June through August. David Phillips, Environment Canada’s senior meteorologist, has been commenting on the upcoming summer weather even though the official forecast is not yet out. “It’s almost a crapshoot, in a way,” Phillips told The Daily Brew. “I certainly wouldn’t plan an outdoor wedding based on the seasonal forecast. This is not a done deal.” However, in late April, Drew Lerner of World Weather Inc. described quite a different scenario to Western Producer reporter Sean Pratt. “I actually did a couple of studies and they both come up with the same general solution that it will not be a hot summer. There will be a tendency for cooler than usual conditions to occur,” he said. Lerner’s view is backed up by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Meanwhile, the Farmer’s Almanac is calling for near normal summer rainfall (as are most forecasts) with the hottest temperatures (big surprise) in early to mid July and August and late August. So, take your pick of the forecasts. Just be sure to take it with salt.

The April 26 column titled “Canola’s success big headache for other crops,” by Kevin Hursh, may lead one to assume that success of canola diminishes the importance of other crops grown in Saskatchewan, which is not the case. Saskatchewan farmers grow canola, as well as cereals, other oilseeds and pulse crops, relying on the success of all commodities to be profitable. Profitability results from improved agronomic practices, higher prices and genetics. It is a combination of increased profitability and recent

weather patterns in non-traditional canola grow ing areas that has expanded acres. According to crop insurance data there are few Saskatchewan farmers implementing continuous canola and although tightened rotations are occurring, four year rotations are still common in all soil zones. With respect to disease, weed and insect pressures, there is research investment in agronomy to provide farmers with the tools to reduce pest pressures and information on production risks associated with tightened rotations. Hursh emphasized the importance of levies and this is certainly the case with canola. The achievements of the canola industry are the result of for-

ward-thinking producers who built a basis for success through levies from canola grown and sold in Saskatchewan. These dollars have allowed producer organizations to fund research p ro g ra m s, p rov i d e e d u c a t i o n through extension activities and build substantial international and domestic markets for canola products. Producers have also developed strong relationships with members along the supply chain, resulting in one voice on issues that impact the entire industry. At a time when we are seeing increased prices across all agricultural commodities, increased land values and a vibrant processing sec-

PROBLEM DITCHING To the Editor: For over seven years we have been struggling with our neighbours, our municipality and provincial government bodies to find a solution to a problem that keeps getting worse every year. And the worst part is no one seems to care or is willing to do anything to stop it. Since the summer of 2005, I have dealt with the effects of unlawful drainage and the large amount of drainage waters flooding my land. A lot of the land around our farm — marginal land full of sloughs — is being bought up and drained with heavy equipment even though this land is swampy and is only good as pasture land. My neighbours are draining the water off their land as fast as possible with no regard for what happens to anyone downstream. They have no permits, they’re not willing to discuss the repercussions of their actions, and the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority doesn’t enforce the law. These farmers are breaking the law by draining 28 quarter sections illegally on to me and they are not held accountable. Why is that? It’s illegal to drain water without a permit, so why isn’t the government putting a stop to it? I filed a complaint in the spring of 2011 with the SWA, the government department responsible for protecting water resources. They tell me it could take years before anything is done and to try and work it out with my neighbours. Last fall the heavy equipment was working again doing more drainage and SWA still did nothing. I’m losing more and more acres every year. I haven’t seeded some areas of my land in almost five years. I’m worried about all the contaminants that are arrived with the runoff due to drainage and flooding and how it will affect the three wells on my property. I’m worried about the health of my family. I know of wells in other rural municipalities that can no longer be used because of this kind of contamination…. This land has been in my family for multiple generations and the problem has never been this bad. Increased drainage has only made it worse. I’m fed up. And where’s the provincial watershed authority? They should be shutting these drainage works down. They’re illegal. All I want is for the drainage to stop; for the flooding to stop; and for these farmers to have a regard for the law that was put in place to protect the landowners in this province from dealing with the issues I have for almost a decade. I just want my farm back…. Peter and Barbara Onofreychuk, MacNutt, Sask.





To the Editor:

Unlocking adoption records will relieve pain, unravel mysteries

Allowing the wolf to guard the sheep would be unthinkable. For the Conservatives to close the door on public debate to genetically modified alfalfa for fear that “the mere discussion of resistance to genetically modified products will drive away industry investment” is also unthinkable. (WP, April 19, page 43) The Liberals and NDP put forward a motion for a moratorium on GM alfalfa before the last election but the minority Conservatives delayed a vote so a vote was never held. GM alfalfa has been approved for safety (eating and growing) but requires variety registration before it can be legally sold as seed in Canada. The company (Monsanto) needs to apply for variety registration and has not yet done so. Our majority Conservative government has effectively locked up the sheep, the citizens they govern, and given the wolf, industry investors, licence to do as they please. The wolf will fatten at the irreversible expense of the sheep. Recently, a motion for public debate was brought forward by a Liberal MP; the Conservative chair of the House of Commons agriculture committee adjourned a meeting before the motion was voted on. This is not democracy. The moratorium has never been place d o n t he a p p rova l of GM alfalfa. Further public debate and biotechnology study is not being allowed. The now majority Conservative government are clandestinely considering this important decision in secret. Non-partisan and non-corporately funded and controlled scientists and institutions must carry out research. Results from these unbiased scientists and studies must then be publicly debated; the scientists must not be gagged or muffled. Decisions that may have long-term negative ramifications for all of us must not be made in secret. These decisions could impact our food security, export markets as witnessed by the EU’s resistance to “low level presence of GMOs” and most devastating will be the effect on our local rural agrarian economies. What can we, as voting, thinking, caring and concerned citizens, do to ensure that democracy is honoured and served?




t hurts when officials make decisions on your behalf. Wo m e n w h o gav e b i r t h i n Homes for Unwed Mothers, shelters for unwed pregnant women that existed from the 1940s to the 1980s, had all their decisions made for them even before the child was born. Many were never allowed to see the

baby and had to sign papers giving their infants up for adoption. I remember, not only because I was one of those babies, but also because, as a new candidate for ordination in 1965, I was taken to visit one of those homes. It was with condescending pride the director told us about the home’s policy. “It is best for everyone,” she declared. As a teenager, I wanted to find out about my family history but was told all those records were destroyed. Can you imagine a government agency destroying records? Later, a friend knowledgeable in the workings of children’s welfare ways told me bluntly, “your (adoption) parents were very good to you. That’s all you need to know.”


I was then in my 30s. How gullible of us to simply absorb the information government officials gave us in those days. It was a slick way of covering for families embarrassed over what they called illegitimate births. Without any desire to judge my adoptive parents, I wanted to learn

Environmental protection has cost: ranchers, farmers Conservation plan | Fair compensation sought for conservation measures BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Producers attending a recent meeting of the federal government’s e nv i ro n m e n t c o m m i t t e e s a i d healthy soil, air and water are important to them, but they want the public to know that taking care of those resources does not come for free. They urged members on the committee to push for fair compensation and recognition for ecosystem protection. The federal environment committee toured Canada to listen to groups that use the land. The committee met with energy company representatives and agriculture groups in Calgary May 17. The final results will be merged into recommendations on a national conservation plan that was first proposed last year in the speech from the throne. Ranchers said the symbiotic relationship between graziers and wildlife habitat protection is often overlooked. “To survive as a cattleman, you have to be a very good businessperson,” said rancher Bob Jamieson of southeastern British Columbia. “You also have to be a very good ecologist, because we are not ranchers, we are grass managers. If you don’t manage that grass, you lose the basis of your business.” “What is good for the ecosystem and the land is what is profitable for me,” added rancher Doug Sawyer from Pine Lake, Alta. Submissions by Alberta Beef Producers and the Western Stock Growers Association (WSGA) said that balance is necessary in a national conservation plan. It should preserve important natural areas and ecosystems while ensuring that balance is maintained between the benefits to society and the environment and the financial well-being of those living on the land. As well, significant land purchases or the removal of land from production should not be allowed to be a requirement for adhering to the national plan. The plan needs to clearly identify


priorities and thresholds of areas to be conserved, said ABP manager Rich Smith. ABP also wants a fair representation of key stakeholders from government, industry and the public when setting priorities, rather than allowing narrow interest groups to have too much influence on decisions, said Smith. Rancher Norm Ward of the WSGA advised the government to involve people who live and work closely with the land when making decisions. Decisions from a centralized group or large committees are not

always workable. He said landowners assume the economic burden of protecting the environment on behalf of all Canadians, whether they are in the resource sector, agriculture or recreation. “Consumers of ecosystem services have to realize these are not free,” said Ward, who ranches near Granum, Alta. Stephen Vandervalk, Alberta vicepresident of the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association and president of Grain Growers of Canada, said the proposed plan must recognize that better technology and evolving scientific knowledge keep agriculture sustainable and help the environment. “To be profitable, we have to make sure the ground is better this year than it was last year.” Grain farmers have switched to minimum tillage to prevent erosion and lower use of fossil fuel. GPS and precision farming have also lowered their use of farm chemicals, he said.


New Ag Canada technology expands markets for oats BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Canadian oats will be used in skin care and health products under a new licensing agreement between the federal government and an Alberta biotech company. The licensing agreement will help Ceapro use Canadian oats to create beauty and skin products. Agriculture Canada scientist William Collins discovered 25 years ago that avenanthramides are naturally occurring polyphenols with antihistamine and anti-inflammatory properties, which explain why oatmeal baths are soothing to itchy skin.

The molecules are found only in oats and only in small quantities, which has previously limited their commercial application. The new technology increases the levels of molecules that can be extracted. “We are very excited that Agriculture Canada has determined that Ceapro has the ability to rapidly commercialize this technology,” said David Fielder, Ceapro’s chief scientific officer. “It will be a game changer for Ceapro, putting us in a position to produce the much larger volumes needed to supply new markets and attract the right partners.”

A Manitoba Forage Council program that helps alfalfa growers pinpoint the optimum time to cut their crop is now underway in the province. The Green Gold project disseminates a status report on the progress and maturity of Manitoba’s alfalfa crop to forage growers, dairy farmers and cattle producers. Interested farmers can access the information on the forage council website or receive an e-mail of the reports. The reports begin after the May long weekend and usually run until t h e m i d d l e o f Ju n e, s a i d Jo h n McGregor, program co-ordinator. “We put together a summar y report, twice a week, up till first cut (of alfalfa),” he said. McGregor and two colleagues take alfalfa samples across the province and submit them to a lab for testing. Dairy farmers require alfalfa with a relative feed value (RFV) of 150 or higher, and the program is designed to identify the proper time to cut the crop to achieve that level. “Depending on the year, the time when the alfalfa reaches that optimu m s t a g e c a n v a r y ( by t h re e weeks),” McGregor said. Farmers use reports from their region to make a decision about cutting. “A farmer, by looking at our reports … can say the alfalfa will be ready for c u t t i n g at t h i s o p t i mu m s t a g e around this date,” McGregor said. “They’ll know that a week or 10 days in advance so they can start getting ready.” Beef and sheep producers can also use the information to decide when to cut their crops to achieve a particular RFV. The Green Gold program is funded by Dairy Farmers of Manitoba, FeedRite Grunthal, Pioneer Hi-Bred Ltd./ Marc Hutlet Seeds Ltd., Northstar Seed Ltd., Southeastern Farm Equipment, BrettYoung, Central Testing Lab and Niverville Credit Union. Cutting remains a few weeks away, but McGregor is concerned about this year’s alfalfa crop. The crop was 10 to 11 inches tall before the May long weekend and slightly ahead of normal. However, a warm March followed by a cool April has altered plant development. “The main stems that have come up are short, but I’m seeing a lot of new growth coming in from the bottom,” he said. “Because of this … there will be a lot of leaves in there and therefore the RFV will be fairly high, given that we’ve got a short crop.” For more information, contact McGregor at





Man. farmers worry pesticide ban will hike weed spread Control begins in urban areas | The development of invasive weeds often starts in urban gardens and spreads to farmers’ fields BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

An environmentalist lobbying for a cosmetic pesticide ban in Manitoba isn’t convinced most provincial residents want a ban on lawn and garden chemicals. Amanda Kinden, manager of the organic lawn care educational project for the Manitoba Eco-Network, said people in the province want parks, lawns and school grounds to look green and well kept. Most think herbicides are needed to achieve a tidy look, so unless there is definitive

proof that pesticides are a risk to human health, Manitobans will probably oppose a ban, Kinden said. “Probably, people would see it as more work and a problem rather than a benefit to them,” she said. In February, conservation minister Gord Mackintosh said he wanted to introduce legislation to ban cosmetic pesticides. However, he also said the province would consult with interested parties to develop a madein-Manitoba policy before implementing the ban. A spokesperson for the minister said details of the consultation process

will be announced in the next few weeks. Regulatory changes prompted by consultation could be introduced in the legislature’s fall session. Keystone Agricultural Producers, the Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM) and the Manitoba Weed Supervisors Association have denounced the proposed ban. Despite the backlash and the lack of widespread public support, Kinden said Manitoba will eventually ban cosmetic pesticides. “Given that we are one of the last provinces that doesn’t have a cosmetic pesticide ban, one will be likely.

Whether it’s next year or in a couple of years, I feel it’s going to happen.” However, many Manitoba farmers believe a ban will affect their livelihoods. As an example, producers in the Rural Municipality of MacDonald are already frustrated because communities in the RM don’t manage weeds properly, said Doug Dobrowolski, AMM president and a grain producer near Domain, Man. “Farmers that farm around the schoolyard are all mad because nobody is spraying the dandelions and the weeds are all blowing into their fields… You’re seeing this right

across the landscape.” John Johnston of Hartney, Man., president of the Manitoba Weed Supervisors Association, said killing invasive species with pesticides inside communities is a key part of a larger strategy to control weeds. A lot of the urban areas can be a sinkhole for the development of invasive weeds,” he said. “Common tansy, purple loosestrife, oxeye daisy, they’re all escaped ornamentals…. So if they’re not controlled in the urban areas and the smaller communities, they quickly become a seed bank to spread (the species).”


Trade deal blamed for Canada’s resource dependency BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Canada’s growing dependence on exports of raw commodities is helping develop a deepening trade deficit, critics say, despite its aggressive free trade negotiating agenda. Council of Canadians (CoC) trade campaigner Stuart Trew recently told the House of Commons international trade committee that free trade deals do not help Canada’s trade record.

He said deals that have already been signed have worsened Canada’s trade balance because they open the door for shipment of raw or barely processed agricultural and resource commodities abroad while opening up Canadian markets to higher value manufactured product imports. “Like the United States, Canada has tended to pursue trade liberalization as an end in itself,” Trew told the committee, which is studying a pot-

ential Canada-Japan trade deal. “Our export priorities are often very similar to the U.S. — grains, meat, fish, other agricultural products — and like the U.S., Canadian trade deals have focused narrowly on reinforcing existing trade patterns, which does nothing to improve the valueadded content of our exports.” He said agricultural exporters that have appeared at the committee to praise the potential of a Canada-Japan deal are “limited vested

interest groups.” Trew said the CoC wants Canada to adhere to a statement from a group of trade-skeptical U.S. organizations, including R-CALF, which calls for “balanced trade,” time limits on trade deals and excluding foreign companies from bidding on local government procurement deals. Later, Canadian Auto Workers Union (CAWU) economist Jim Stanford told MPs that trade deals have made Canada increasingly depen-

Any deal with Japan would follow the same pattern. CAWU opposes a deal with Japan because it says it will lead to more Japanese cars shipped to the Canadian market but no real reciprocal opening for Canadian cars in Japan.





Tapping into water needs Demand rising | Ways must be found to do more with less to avoid an ecological disaster CALGARY BUREAU

Farmers are going to be pressed with the problem of how to produce more food to feed the growing world population, while also finding ways to obtain more water from renewable sources. Here, a crew assembles an irrigation system. | FILE PHOTO

About one-third of global food production depends on non-renewable ground water. That is not sustainable, said Peter Gleick of the Pacific Institute in Oakland, California, during the Water in a World of Seven Billion conference in Calgary May 9-12. “We are going to have to figure out how to move to sustainable food production with renewable water resources, and that is a problem when we are running into peak constraints on non-renewable water,” he said. Fossil ground water is non-renewable. It is found in California’s Central Valley, the Ogallala Aquifer of the U.S. Great Plains, Libya, the north China plains and central India. The Ogallala serves a large food producing area, and policy makers are encouraging farmers to switch from irrigation to relying on precipitation as ground water levels are drawn down. Water can be renewed, but no more is available for the season once it has all been withdrawn from a river or lake. This is known as peak renewable water. The concept has encouraged users to reduce withdrawals without losing productivity in agriculture, power generation, industry and municipal use. Withdrawals have slowed in the last 30 years, although the human population continues to swell. The practice of water productivity, where more is done with less, has gained traction. “In the United States today, we use less water in total than we used in 1980 on a per capita basis,” Gleick said. If water withdrawal had continued at the rate scientists predicted 30 years ago, the United States would have required an additional 800 cubic kilometres to satisfy its current demand. “I don’t know where we would have found it in the United States.” Water productivity is sometimes associated with economics rather than conservation. For example, the American steel industry used 200 tons of water to make a ton of steel in the 1930s, which had fallen to 20 to 30 tons by the 1980s. By 2002, an efficient manufacturer required two to three tons of water to produce a ton of steel. This was the result of new waste

water discharge and treatment standards that were introduced in the 1980s. It was cheaper for the steel industry to generate less waste water. Farmers are also figuring out how to grow more food with less water because it cuts input costs. Nevertheless new sources of water are needed. Building a new dam or pumping another aquifer was once the answer to match demand with traditional sources of supply. If it ran out, water was transferred from elsewhere. Finding new sources of water requires creativity. Some jurisdictions in southern California treat waste water to high standards and return it to recharge ground water or restore inflow needs for local streams. It also provides surface water for industrial processes. Other jurisdictions are building large underground cisterns to capture excess rainfall for landscaping and flushing toilets. Climate change and its impact on water supply must be considered along with environmental degradation. The problem is that no one fully understands the risks to humans from ecosystem degradation. Total global water withdrawals are not well known to project future demand. Groundwater reserves are also not well known. “We don’t know where we are in terms of water use. We don’t know how much the world has and we do not know the key components of the hydrologic cycle or the world’s water balance,” said Gleick. “We don’t know how much ecosystems need for minimum maintenance.” Water conservation and research must continue. “There are human, ecological and environmental costs to doing nothing.” The human impact on the environment has far reaching effects on the water cycle. “As our use of water starts to grow as we use more and more, the economic value we get out of that water starts to grow, but the ecological value starts to drop,” Gleick said. More water may be withdrawn for industrial purposes, but the fish may start to die as stream flows drop or pollution increases. “There comes a point where the


next unit of water we use causes more harm than it provides benefit, and the total value starts to go down.”

Gleick said it is time to design modern water management policies, clarify institutional roles and update

water laws around the world. Some legislation is 100 years old and was written when needs were different.

Lee Wilson thinks he has found a cost effective way to help produce biofuel using wheat straw. In a lab at the University of Saskatchewan, the chemist and his team of graduate students have developed various types of what Wilson terms “molecular sponges.” Some sponges are designed to take specific impurities out of water, such as pesticides. Others can remove toxins from water used in the oilsands. Still another sponge separates ethanol and water to make cellulosic ethanol. “It’s a game changer for parts of the agro economy,” he said. Wilson’s sponges comprise building blocks of components in plant materials that can be isolated and further modified to form different molecular sponge materials. In other words, they can be customized for the job. “With our material, it’s a purely physical process,” he said. “We’re not adding any chemicals in. The polysaccharides that we’ve engineered are not soluble in water. It’s like a powder you sprinkle in but it doesn’t dissolve. You can regenerate that back again just by filtering it off. It’s basically a green chemistry approach.” Biomaterials like straw are known to have an affinity for chemical separations. Wilson described a “wow moment” three years ago when he recognized what the bioactive component was in wheat straw. Having access to that component in its purified form helped him build a better sorbent material. He said wheat straw has three or four to one separation ability. “Our materials had a 60 to 1 separation. It jumped up to a factor of 15 and that was the first go around. We need to optimize this. We’re hoping that if we can boost this up to 100 to 1 or more, (it) would be great, but even as it stands now is exciting,” he said. “What it means is what was previously an energy intensive chemical separation using distillation, we can now do spontaneously at room temperature.” Ron Kehrig of Enterprise Saskatchewan isn’t familiar with Wilson’s technology, but he said doing something else at the energy intensive part of the distillation stage would be good if it reduces energy consumption. “Anything that can be done to reduce the energy consumption in the dehydration of ethanol would be something that the industry would obviously take a look at very seriously and would improve the energy balance of the entire ethanol plant,” he said.

Wilson said the process is done without chemicals because the sponges are not dissolving in water. They stay put as a solid device. Dirty sponges can be washed and reused. Companies and government have become interested. “It’s beyond theoretical because we have results that show,” he said. “We’ve been able to pull pesticide residues out of water down to low enough levels that if you had a contaminated drinking water supply you could really use a system like this to wash out all the pesticides and have clean drinking water.” Wilson said the technology is well suited for producing cellulosic ethanol, which has traditionally relied upon distillation. While conventional techniques work, he questions whether they are economically feasible. “The commercial value of ethanol production is not all that high because the energy inputs are quite high that go along with it.” He said the advantage of molecular sponge material is that the process is done at room temperature without distillation. “My personal feeling is that’s the way to go but it requires a retooling how the refining actually happens. The nature of the industrial process has to be completely redesigned.” He said using the molecular sponge technology to make biofuel could result in a 50 to 90 percent saving in energy and perhaps more. “It’s a huge processing saving,” he said. More lab related research needs to be done, but Wilson and his team are working with engineers and companies to carry it along the chain of development. “We need to develop the process so that it can be implemented into a flow system, so there’s engineering and there’s more optimization in terms of the material development,” he said. “If we can capitalize on the success we’ve already achieved, I think you’ll probably hear some really big things in the next year or two.”






Agrium confident of Viterra buy 258 crop input stores | It will also get a stake in an Alberta nitrogen facility BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Agrium Inc. does not foresee anything getting in the way of its purchase of Viterra’s retail network. “(It’s) our latest attempt at growing and we will succeed in this one,� Agrium president Mike Wilson told investors attending BMO Capital Markets’ 2012 Farm to Market Conference. One investor asked Wilson about the Informa Economics report commissioned by the Saskatchewan government that raised concerns about Agrium’s deal with Glencore International. The proposed deal would see Agrium acquire 232 of Viterra’s 258 crop input stores and its 34 percent stake in an Alberta nitrogen manufacturing facility. “We’ve looked at (the report). We don’t feel it’s going to cause us any concern,� said Wilson. “They seem to be more focused on investment and jobs staying in the province.� Wilson said the final decision on the deal’s foreign investment and competition aspects rests with the federal government rather than the provinces. He expects Glencore to close its deal to buy Viterra in June or July. It will take a little longer for Agrium’s purchase to achieve regulatory approval. “We’ll likely be towards the late third quarter or fourth quarter before we close,� said Wilson. The Viterra purchase would add to Agrium’s already impressive global collection of crop input stores. The company is about four times larger than its biggest retail competitor. It has 25 percent of the Australian market, 20 percent of Argentina and less than 20 percent of the North American market. A g r i u m’s re t a i l s a l e s i n 2 0 1 1 eclipsed its entire revenue stream in 2006. Its seed sales topped $1 billion for the first time and the company sold $700 million of its Loveland brand of chemicals, which represented 20 percent of chemical sales. The Loveland line accounted for 40 percent of the margins in the chemical segment. Agrium acquired 17 companies with 35 retail outlets in 2011 and added another seven companies with 14 farm centres in the first quarter of 2012. If the purchase of the Viterra assets are approved, Agrium would own 53 percent of Canada’s ammonia production capacity and 49 percent of its urea production capacity. Wilson said its nitrogen fertilizer facilities give the company a significant competitive advantage because of cheap natural gas prices in North America and the proximity to the U.S. corn crop. “To get into these markets, our competitors have huge freight penalties and we capitalize on that and we set our pricing based on that.� Wilson expects natural gas prices to remain low for “quite a long time� in North America. One investor asked him how long it will be before Agrium faces increased competition from new nitrogen fertilizer projects.

Most of the world’s new manufacturing plants were built in the Middle East and North Africa over the last 10 years, but capital is definitely shifting to North America. A number of fertilizer companies are expanding or building new plants, including Agrium. Wilson thinks it will likely be five to seven years before those new facilities are built, but he said world nitrogen demand is expanding by two to three million tonnes per year. He expects demand to remain strong as long as corn remains higher than $3.50 per bushel, which provides growers with their historic average margins using today’s seed, fertilizer and chemical prices. Agrium is in the process of expanding its annual potash production to three million tonnes from two million tonnes. Wilson knows of 45 to 50 companies wanting to get into the potash business, but

the barriers to entry are huge. He anticipates that the brownfield, or expansion, projects will happen, but they shouldn’t have too big an impact on potash supply and demand dynamics. Most of the greenfield, or new construction, projects will never occur, he added, because companies are “choking� on the massive capital costs and the length of time required to build new plants. Another investor asked Wilson about the recent trend for fertilizer dealers to completely deplete their stocks before buying new supplies. “It’s amazing how skittish everybody is in the world,� said Wilson. He expects that trend to continue, which will create more volatility in the fertilizer market. Farmers and retailers are scared to take a position on fertilizer in case they are stung like many were in 2008, he added.

Government shifts roles of agricultural inspectors Government a compliance watchdog | Industry associations will be responsible for certifying products for effectiveness BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Federal government agricultural inspectors will soon spend more of their time auditing and less time performing physical inspections. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency delivers 14 inspection programs related to food safety, plant and crop production and animal health. Each has its own enforcement, verification and inspection methods and looks at risk management differently.

According to CFIA documents circulated through newly struck industry committees over the past three weeks, the government intends to put industry in charge of its own hazard control and quality compliance programs, while government will provide “oversight verification through audit.” The CFIA is introducing a standardized “outcome-based inspection approach” system and plans to have a draft process in place for review by the end of the summer. Kristian Stephans of the Canadian

Fertilizer Institute (CFI) sits on one of four fertilizer and crop nutrients committees: safety, efficacy and quality, labelling, definitions and exemptions. “We are in the early stages of this process, and the government has told us it is withdrawing from quality and efficacy,” he said. The CFI is providing the 27 committee members with administrative support during the eight months of regulatory review. It also represents the fertilizer industry with four members, one per committee.

Greg Northey of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture said he feels CFI’s leadership has been good. Labelling, product definitions, standards, regulations and registration requirements are all cited as being outdated and creating impediments to business that increase costs and slow the adoption of new products by the Canadian marketplace. The government said it plans to strengthen regulatory controls for product safety, environmental stewardship and consumer protection. It also said that a shortage of staff

and financial resources has resulted in some fertilizer and crop supplement products being available in Canada for the past year without being registered, which creates an unfair playing field for companies that adhere to the regulations. It said in documents that the new system would most likely hand over to industry associations the responsibility for certifying products’ contents and effectiveness. At the moment, anyone marketing crop products in Canada must provide proof of product efficacy in the regional market where they are sold. Fertilizer quality is tested regularly to ensure its content meets manufacturers’ claims. Under the proposed changes, organizations such as the CFI might be considered as gatekeepers and certifiers, while the government would ensure public and environmental safety and could take a role in ensuring compliance with new regulations administered by industry. “We are moving from a marketplace where all products met regulatory requirements for quality, and farmers knew that if a product was registered for sale it did what the seller said it would,” said Richard Phillips of Grain Growers of Canada, who represents farmers on the review group. “We are moving to a buyer beware system. For farmers, we are hoping to get some things on the table that will help them in the new marketplace….” Business might not change much for larger manufacturers and retailers and for high quality dealers, other than lowering some costs for testing new products. However, the government has indicated there might be increased cost recovery fees in some parts of the system. Phillips said reputable companies will belong to associations and will likely police themselves, but others might avoid those industry certifications. “There will be good and bad to this. Faster availability of new tools and products that meet market niches will be advantages.” He said the government needs to ensure that affordable product testing of less than $100 for nutrients is available to farmers. Committee members still haven’t discussed the rumored on-farm storage regulations that are expected to be introduced as a part of the Modernization of the Fertilizers Regulations process. “That might be voluntary too, but it could be anhydrous ammonia standards,” Phillips said. “If the dealer knows you don’t handle the product properly they won’t sell to you. It relies on everyone looking over each other’s shoulders.” He said the process will likely involve standards such as storage next to riparian areas and waterways. The Pest Management Regulatory Agency will review its act next year. It is a much more modern act, already containing outcome-based elements and acceptance of information from other jurisdictions. However, its fee structure hasn’t been reviewed since the 1990s so it will likely see increases.

Smart marketing strategies help boost farm sales Promoting how-to | Consumers want to be fed and entertained BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Buying directly from a farm to get fresh, local products is one of the hottest trends among foodies. “Fifteen years ago, local wasn’t really hip,” said Kerry Engel of Alberta Agriculture. The president of the North American Farmers’ Direct Marketing Association, who is monitoring trends in direct farm sales, shared tips to get more customers to the farm in a special session May 9. As more people seek local foods and choose to support local producers, they are also learning to accept the seasonality of foods. She said local food and direct marketing carry certain expectations among customers who want to be fed and entertained. “We are seeing many different ways where

farms are looking for ways to fill your tummy,” she said. People are more concerned about their health as the incidence of diabetes, heart disease and obesity rises. “What we are eating is practically killing us,” Engel said. Consumers are looking for foods that are fat-free, gluten-free or that contain less sugar, she said. There are new ways to approach the customer looking for new foods, including setting up an on-farm bakery or cafe so people can select from a menu of items grown and prepared on the farm. Shoppers may also want to watch food prepared or take cooking lessons from a professional. “Fifteen years ago, we would have laughed about a chef and a farmer working together,” Engel said. The farmer can offer activities like tours, haunted houses in the fall or planned events like birthday parties or weddings. Children’s activities are important because they often influence their parents to spend more.

More are using social media to promote the farm and let customers know when food is in season or when special events are planned. Regularly updated pictures and videos can provide a broader view of what is going on and what there is to do once visitors arrive at the farm. “They provide regular updates so customers don’t forget about you,” Engel said. Social media also helps farmers stay in touch and share ideas.

MARKETING TIPS • erect roadside signs to direct consumers to the farm • themed decorations, food, gifts and activities on site enhance the country ambience and prolong the visitor’s stay • greet visitors and offer information about the farm’s history and connection to the community • join an association to stay in touch with other direct marketers,

Rising numbers of people affected by dementia and increasing costs associated with caring for them have set off alarm bells throughout the world. The World Health Organization recently called on public health authorities to make dementia a priority. It released a report last month estimating one new case every four seconds and identifying dementia as a “ticking time bomb.” In Canada, the Alzheimer Society, which serves as an umbrella organization for all dementias, knows all about the impending explosion. The society’s Rising Tide report, released in 2010, estimated the number of Canadians with Alzheimer’s, the most common type, and other dementias will double to 1.1 million within a generation. The cost for caring for them will go up 10 times to $153 billion from $15 billion. In Saskatchewan, Joanne Bracken is watching the numbers and hoping the province can handle them. The chief executive officer of the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan said the province’s senior population is growing. “There is still this myth and misconception that what’s happening to people is just a normal part of aging, and dementia is not a normal part of aging,” she said. “People need to pay attention to the warning signs and to get help.” The baby boomers started turning 65 in 2011. “We don’t have a lot of time to prepare for this. It’s already upon us.” After age 65, the chance of developing a dementia doubles every five years. After age 85, one in three people has a dementia. “We have this huge demographic of people over the age of 85 and we don’t have a plan of how we’re going to address this situation,” Bracken said. Eight countries have developed national strategies to deal with it, but Canada isn’t among them. The society educates and supports patients and caregivers. It funds re-search such as the link between depression and Alzheimer’s through the $1 million research chair in partnership with the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation and its First Link program that follows newly diagnosed patients. It relies on private and corporate donations and extensive fundraising to get things done. Governments provide less than three percent of its budget. Bracken said although Saskatchewan piloted the First Link program in Canada, and other governments are now announcing funding to implement it, the province is falling behind in funding support for people with dementia. “In 2008, family members provided nine million hours of unpaid care to support people living with dementia and by 2038, we’re saying that’s going to go up to 30 million hours a year. That’s just in Saskatchewan.” There is already a shortage of long-term care beds and the Alzheimer Society is forecasting a shortage 11 times greater. Bracken said about half of people with dementia live in long-term care. “But when you look at the statistics in long-term care, it’s probably be-tween 68 and 100 percent of all residents have a dementia of some type.” People are beginning to ask what they can do to lower their risk, and the answer is similar to what they can do to prevent other diseases: healthy diet, exercise and reducing stress. Progression of the disease can also be slowed through exercise. Brain health is a concept that people are thinking about with all the focus on concussions and hockey injuries. And while many say dementia runs in the family, that likely isn’t true.



Lesser Slave Lake Bird Observatory in Alberta co-ordinated a bird banding event in early May. The first week of banding netted 325 birds of 13 species. | Les Dunford photos


bird banding CLOCKWISE, FROM TOP LEFT: A Savannah sparrow is prepared for banding at Canada’s northernmost migration monitoring station, one of 25 banding stations in the country. Each band number is recorded before the bird is released back into the wild. A black and white adult male warbler is held firmly in place by the bander. A yellow warbler was one of numerous species banded. As well as netting the birds, the banders also do a count. On April 19, they had counted about 12,000 birds of various species. Bander Richard Krikun examines the catch of the day, a male American kestrel, the first that has been banded at this site. Assistant bander Nicole Linfoot holds the bird before banding. A yellow rumped warbler is eager to take flight. The netted birds are checked for identity, sex, weight, age and condition, with some tail feathers removed for further research regarding health. Data from recovered bands provides information on the distribution and movements of bird species, their relative abundance, annual productivity, life span and causes of death.

WHAT IS BIRD BANDING? • Bird banding first began in Canada early in the 20th century, but it wasn’t until 1916-17 that the federal government began to administer bird banding. • Banding is used to help scientists study bird migration patterns, determine populations of various species and study the impacts of pollution and other risks. • Bands come in different colours and sizes. Each thin metal band has a unique identification number that allows for records to be made of each bird’s species, age, sex, location and other details. • About 900 banders put bands and markers on more than 300,000 migratory birds in Canada every year. • The most common marked bird in North America is the mallard — more than seven million have been marked since 1908. • You can report banded birds to 1-800-327-BAND or visit www.

New mothers welcome nutritious, easy-to-handle meals TEAM RESOURCES


Gifts are appreciated but check for food preferences and allergies first


ew moms need healthy food to help them regain their energy and produce milk for their babies. Welcome the new baby by bringing over a basket of fresh, washed fruit, prepared vegetables or buns. Freezer meals like salmon gratin or beef barley soup will also be appreciated. Meals for new moms We are celebrating the addition of a fourth granddaughter. As I reflected on her birth, I was reminded that there are many mothers and grandmothers who are grieving the loss of a child or grandchild. This makes the family moments that we spend together precious. As I have watched our children become parents, I realize that new moms need to be mothered. They need to be fed, nurtured and loved just as much as they need to be feeding, nurturing and loving their new little ones. Breast milk is the recommended best food for the new infant. To produce the milk and boost mom’s energy, she needs to be eating a healthy diet. Eating and drinking nutrient-rich foods at regular intervals throughout the day and night helps the new mom regain her strength and energy. Supplying pre-made meals for new parents is a way to help nurture the new mom. Prior to making the food, you may want to check with family about food preferences and/or allergies. For a breast-feeding mom, spicy foods, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and other brassica family vegetables,

and onions, garlic and other allium family members can upset the baby so it is best to limit or avoid them. Include a list of the ingredients or the recipe. If you have omitted the spices, indicate this also so they can season it to their tastes. Also include on the package any cooking or reheating instructions that will be needed to prepare the food.

SALMON GRATIN Salmon is a great food for a new mom. Salmon is loaded with a type of fat called DHA, which is crucial to the development of the baby’s nervous system. All breast milk contains DHA but it increases when the mother has more in her diet. Some studies suggest that DHA may also play a role in preventing postpartum depression. 2 small Yukon Gold potatoes 1 tsp. oil 5 mL 1/2 onion, sliced (omit if making for nursing mom) 1/2 tsp. salt 2 mL 1/2 tsp. pepper 2 mL 1 c. portobello 250 mL mushrooms, sliced 1 c. frozen broccoli, 250 mL cut up (or substitute frozen green peas or peas & carrots) 2 frozen salmon fillets 1/4 c.

Turn heat down and simmer for one hour. Add additional carton of broth and frozen peas, heat and serve or cool and put in containers to freeze. Leave one inch (2 cm) head space at the top of the container. Label and freeze. When serving, add extra broth or water if the barley has absorbed most of the liquid.


new mom and most dads enjoy fresh homemade buns. Send along cheddar cheese for the buns or as a healthy snack. Bags of washed and chopped carrots and celery are handy for meals or snack time. It seems like a new mom is always hungry, even at night. A batch of healthy blueberry bran or orange cranberry bran muffins is an easy snack that can be eaten while nursing the baby. If your time is limited, pick up a variety of fruits, wash and make a fruit basket, or a case of flavoured water to encourage the mom to drink more water. Be encouraging and supportive of the new parents as they adjust to the responsibilities and demands of a new baby at home.

to being his old self again? Do brain cells ever grow back?



A friend’s son was in a car accident about five years ago. He was badly brain damaged and unconscious for two weeks. He is able to walk and talk, but now has a volatile, quick temper. He was easygoing before the accident. He does not seem like the same person. Will he ever get back

Although it is possible for people with severe brain damage to improve for as long as 10 years after the accident, the chances are that your friend’s son will never be back to his old self. Sometimes the injured individual becomes a completely different person, apart from his or her physical appearance. A quick temper is a common feature of damage to the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. The frontal lobe plays a key role in higher mental functions such as motivation, planning, socially appropriate behaviour and speech.

Damage to this area makes it difficult for the patient to return to a job that involves complex interaction with people. Slow and partial improvement is not due to the damaged cells regenerating, but new connections can be formed, and other parts of the brain can be gradually trained to take over some of the functions of the damaged parts. There are only a few small parts of the brain where there are new nerve cells being formed. Generally speaking, the central nervous system cells that you are born with have to last a lifetime. Brain cells have long tentacles or connections that they make from one cell to the other. They are what

is up to the executor to act as the legal representative of the deceased. In most cases, he will take the will to a law office and the lawyer will assist in settling the estate. If there was no will or no surviving executor or those named are not able to do the job, an administrator must be appointed by application to the court. The job of the executor/administrator is to determine what assets the deceased person had, make sure all the debts and taxes are paid and distribute net assets to beneficiaries named in the will. If there was a spouse or dependent children that were not adequately provided for in the will, the finalization of an estate is delayed and an application is made on their behalf. The executor and lawyer determine the assets and debts, then letters probate may need to be applied for. The executor makes application for them to the Court of Queen’s Bench for the court’s formal confirmation that the will presented and the executor presenting it are the true will and executor of the deceased. With the court sealed letters probate, any institution such as a bank or land registry system may deal with that executor and follow the will’s instructions on the disposition of the deceased person’s property. Letters probate is always required where the person who died held land in his name. Also, banks and other financial institutions will require them where there are significant deposits in their institutions. Generally, the law office will help the executor to determine the assets owned by the deceased and their value at date of death. Letters are sent to each bank where they held accounts, pension and insurance companies, government departments regarding Old Age Security or Canada Pension Plan benefits and other entities in which the deceased might have invested money or be owed money. Debts have to be determined and paid. If the deceased was in active business at the time of death, a notice to creditors posted in the local paper alerts creditors to submit their bills. Without taking this step, the executor could be personally liable for unpaid debts. All income tax for the deceased must be paid. The final tax returns are prepared, usually with the assistance of an accountant, and after the notices of assessments are received, most executors will request a tax clearance certificate from Canada Revenue Agency, which certifies that all amounts for which the deceased was liable have been paid. If the executor does not get this certificate, he can be liable for any unpaid tax the deceased person owed. This step of requesting the certificate does not take place until the tax returns have been completed and t h e n o t i c e s o f a s s e s s m e nt a re received, so it is late in the settlement of the estate. It can be many months before that final certificate arrives. This article is presented for informational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice.

Rush hour farming Farming in the Greater Toronto Area | Land values, wildlife, traffic pose challenges for farm couple BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

CAMPBELLVILLE, Ont. — One of the problems of being a commercial farmer living in the shadow of metropolitan Toronto is crop-destroying wildlife. Toronto commuters have also been buying land in Peter Lambrick’s area west of Toronto, building big country homes and renting out the remaining land to local farmers. It drives land prices out of the reach of farmers looking to expand. And because of the sensibilities of the urban arrivals into the rich farming countryside on the edge of the Greater Toronto Area, wildlife sightings are welcome and eradication not allowed. “We really see an influx of deer, turkeys, raccoons, geese all around,” says Lambrick. “It’s nothing for us to lose 12 rows of corn to wildlife and there really is nothing we can do about it.” But for this 61-year-old immigrant from England who has farmed in the area for almost 40 years and rents 800 acres to grow a variety of crops, supplemented by custom work on farms in the neighbourhood, the biggest hassle is the traffic. His farm is near Milton, Canada’s fastest growing community as more Torontonians move west for cheaper land and the cache of country living. The highway that runs past his farmhouse and that connects him to

Urban areas and major highways entwine tightly with farmland in the Greater Toronto Area.

Liz Lambrick, who emigrated from England to marry Peter last decade, sells vegetables and garlic products from a roadside stand. “The real seller is her garlic fudge,” Peter said. Tomatoes, sweet corn and other vegetables from Liz’s garden also are on offer.

But the real income mainstay for the farm is soybeans and in particular identity preserved soybeans. Grains and oilseeds are part of the rotation and custom work on fields often owned by city workers with land leased out also is a key part of the farm business plan. Selling straw to local strawberry farms is part of the revenue stream as well as a seed cleaning business. “You have to be creative, do what you can,” said Peter. He has quit marketing wheat through the voluntar y Ontario Wheat Board because it doesn’t provide the service he can get from private grain handling companies. He said the possibility of expanding his land base is limited by the eco-

nomics of local land prices. “At present, a lot of land is being moved but at prices you just can’t justify for production.” Lambrick Farms Enterprises experiences both the problems and the opportunities of trying to exist near Toronto. High land prices, urban rules about rural living and regulations about land use and farming practices are a constant challenge. “But I like to be positive and the advantage of farming here close to the GTA is that we are so close to such a massive market,” said Peter. There are farmers’ markets, roadside stands and a wide array of marketing opportunities. He has been a leader in a project to

encourage governments, planners, processors, municipalities, consumers and farmers within the heavily populated and fertile southwest Ontario Golden Horseshoe to work together to ensure the future of the local farm and food industry. “We need to attract the next generation of farmers here because there is a future in the food industry within the GTA,” said Lambrick. The action plan produced for the future of agriculture within the shadow of Canada’s largest city includes incentives for new farmers and for immigrants with farming background to have access to land where crops can be produced to satisfy the food needs of an increasingly ethnic population.


Help son by listening SPEAKING OF LIFE



A few weeks ago, my oldest son signed on to see a counsellor through his employment assistance program. My son has struggled for survival ever since his father’s death 16 years ago. He was six years old when his dad died, too young to be able to make any sense out of it and too vulnerable not to feel deeply about his loss. He still needs to work some things out. My son likes the counsellor and attends regularly, but the counselling itself does not seem to be helping him much. He is still far too impulsive and self-destructive. I would like this counselling to help my son and I would like to do what I can to support it. What do you suggest that I do?


The magic of counselling is listening. For years, counsellors, psychologists and psychiatrists have been saying that each of us has a story to tell. The problem is that story might be hidden in some dark recess of the mind and only comes to light

with considerable effort. The fact your son is willing to continue with his counselling even though neither he nor you have seen much progress tells me that he is going to a good counsellor who is willing to be patient and listen to him. The magic of listening does not immediately transcend into new and more healthy behaviour. It takes time. Along the way, your son will begin to understand that it might be possible for him to change, not be so impulsive and become less selfdestructive. These are new ideas for him. He needs to be more comfortable with the fact he can control himself before he will start to assume that responsibility. Your part is to be as honest with him as you can be. When he asks you to tell him more about his dad’s death, take the time to make sure he has the facts. At six years old, he probably did not understand as clearly what was going on as he will now if you give him the information he needs. You also need to let him know how proud you are that he has managed to survive these difficulties in his life. The more he understands how much you admire him, the more likely he is to embrace the changes he is talking about in his counselling. Jacklin Andrews is a family counsellor from Saskatchewan.

One year later: toll of 2011 flood evident A year after Manitoba’s floods, the water still has not completely receded. Even in areas where the water has returned to more normal levels, pastures are far from recovered. | Ed White photos FAR LEFT: A dog walks through a flooded pasture beside Lake Manitoba, but little grass will grow this year and it can’t support cattle. The lake is still above the pre-flood level. LEFT: A clamshell sits atop what should be lush, green, pasture. BELOW: The grass isn’t what is making this pasture green. A green scum covers fields that were covered by water for much of the past year.


Flood’s hard legacy carries on one year later BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

SIGLUNES, Man. — Arnthor Jonnason looks across a pleasant beach on the shores of Lake Manitoba and sighs. “It’s a wasteland,” he says matterof-factly. He bends down and picks up a handful of what could be sand but then holds up a ball of earth trailing a thick tangle of grass roots — dead roots. This is not meant to be a beach. It only looks like a beach because the grass that has covered it for as long as people have lived here was killed by a massive flood that covered tens of thousands of acres around Lake Manitoba from last May until the middle of the winter. The lake is still a few feet higher than it should be and is only slowly draining. Fo r t h i s s e a s o n , m o s t o f t h e

drowned pastures won’t produce enough grass to support cattle, and drowned hayland won’t produce a crop. Some elevated patches of pasture and hayland survived in some fields, but too little to be of use. That means many cattle producers have had to break up their herds and move them to where they can find pastures to rent. Many are still having to buy hay. That has been the situation since last spring, when the flood hit and panic consumed the area. Jonnason has brought his cows home for calving, but plans to ship them out again to new rented pastures, where he will probably have to hire help to watch them. He’ll also have to buy 1,000 to 1,500 bales of hay that his own hayland would normally produce. He’s wondering who’s going to pay for this, and so are farmers around Lake Manitoba, Dog Lake and other areas that the Manitoba government intentionally flooded last year.

Dog Lake farmer Caron Clarke isn’t as badly off as Jonnason, losing only a half section of hayland, including a small pasture. However, that half section is needed for her cows, and rehabilitating the flooded and drowned land won’t be easy. Clarke, a board member of Manitoba Beef Producers, said farmers who need to re-seed large acreages to grass generally don’t own large equipment because they normally reseed only small acreages each year. The situation is worse for producers who have native pastures and hayland. That land has never been broken, so it is strewn with rocks and obstacles. Clarke worries the provincial government may fail to compensate for production losses and rehabilitation costs this year, even though the government caused the flood. “It was a decision of the provincial government to channel that water

into Lake Manitoba instead of down the Assiniboine,” said Clarke. “It was a decision the government made and they should compensate the people who were sacrificed.” The Lake Manitoba flood resulted when the bloated Assiniboine River was redirected north from Portage la Prairie to stop massive flooding between Portage and Winnipeg. The water poured into Lake Manitoba, but the lake only has a restricted outflow. As a result, lake levels rose higher than ever before recorded and poured over pastures around the lake. Many government programs were implemented last year to deal with the flooding, including production loss compensation for farmers, but this year the government has been unclear about how much of the ongoing expenses it will cover. Clarke hopes the government accepts its responsibility and helps farmers recover.

“It’s all bulrushes and muskrat houses,” said Clarke, looking out at one of her hay fields.

he calf, resting near a roadside fence while its mother was grazing, looked abandoned. So a passer-by loaded the 80-pound Charolais into her Lexus SUV, took it back to her garage and attempted to nurse it with formula and a turkey baster. Eventually she took the weakening calf to a veterinarian, where she learned all had been fine before she intervened. The calf ’s mother had been nearby. This true story was recounted at The 2006 incident occurred at the Middle Tennessee State University Farm. And it’s just the sort of event that should alert Canadian livestock producers to the need for a public conversation, said Manitoba Beef Producers general manager Cam Dahl. “I think that’s what happens when people are only getting information from the activist side,” he said. “If that’s the only source of information for somebody, they don’t know our story. We need to be engaging the public in a conversation and let them know what is being done.” But terminology is important when producers consider those who criticize animal production practices, he added. Those he calls activists are people who want to eliminate animal agriculture. People concerned about animal welfare are a far larger group, and the one producers need to reach.


John Maaskant, a chicken farmer and former chair of the Ontario Farm Animal Council, makes a similar distinction when asked about the possibility of a dialogue between livestock producers and activists. “We have animal rights activists that basically threaten our food system because they are abolitionists,” he said.

“On the other hand, we have people concerned about animal welfare. They don’t tend to be activists in the same sense. We need to make sure we understand that there’s a difference.” Maaskant said animal activists are not that concerned about animal welfare. As proof, he points to their successful elimination of the horse slaughter industry in the United States that resulted in hundreds of horses being starved, abandoned a n d t ra n s p o r t e d w h e n s i c k o r injured. “None of that is of concern to the animal rights people. They won that one.” Ed Pajor, a professor of animal behaviour and welfare at the University of Calgary’s veterinary school, said the rise in consumer concerns about animal welfare in food animals over the last 10 to 15 years relates directly to their unfamiliarity with agriculture. In many urban lives, animals have moved from possessions to members of the family. “The closest relationship they have with animals, and in some cases the only relationship they have with animals, is the relationship they have with their pet, and that does create certain expectations,” said Pajor. The specifics of stocking density and livestock housing may be lost to them because they have no context. “But they do have a sense that causing pain and suffering to animals might be a bad thing, and is a bad thing, and if there’s ways it can be controlled, it should be done.” Pajor, Dahl and Maaskant agreed producers need to focus on the latter group of people rather than to the extreme groups whose positions are entrenched. “How does the guy at the end of the gravel road respond to the latest advertisement from PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals),” asked Dahl. “We have to make sure the consumers aren’t just hearing from PETA. They have to hear from us, too.” And that means taking ever y opportunity to talk about their operations and explain the reasons behind common agricultural practice. Dahl said farmers are credible in the public eye and their views carry considerable weight. CONTINUED ON PAGE 30

Handle with care | Consumers want to know the meat they buy in the store has come from a farm where the animal was treated well BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU




INNIPEG — As she leaned forward in her chair, coffee cup clasped in two hands, Vicki Burns listened to a question about her career with the Winnipeg Humane Society. Burns, who was the bane of Manitoba hog farmers during the 1990s and the 2000s for her tireless efforts to ban sow stalls, leaned back and paused a couple of seconds inside a Winnipeg baker y before she answered the question: are you an extremist? No, she responded, with a slight shake of the head, explaining she grew up in a middle class home in Winnipeg with middle class values. She also led a normal life as an adult, working as a social worker for two decades before serving as Winnipeg Humane Society executive director for 14 years. “I’ve never chained myself to the legislature,” she said. “I think that (extremist) is an easy label for people to (use) so they don’t actually have to pay attention.” Burns left her position with the humane society several years ago, but dozens of livestock producers in Manitoba still think of her as an enemy of animal agriculture. However, Burns, who remains involved in animal issues as president of the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies, isn’t troubled by her notoriety. “If farmers want to be mad at me, that’s fine,” she said. “But try and listen to some of the things I’m saying…. It’s important for us to have animal agriculture in Canada, but it’s important we listen to signals from consumers around the world and start doing it in a way that is more sustainable.” Burns’ journey to become either an animal welfare advocate or enemy of livestock agriculture, depending on who you ask, began in the 1990s when she applied for a job she knew little about. Trained as a social worker, Burns spent the 1970s and 1980s assisting people with developmental challenges. That segment of her career helped define her approach to people and society. “Respect was a very big issue in that field. It was important to treat everybody, no matter what their intellectual abilities, with respect,” she said. “A lot of the work in my whole working career has revolved around respect. Respect for individuals, respect for the environment, respect for the needs of animals.” Bill McDonald, who replaced Burns at the Winnipeg Humane Society, described her as a person with quiet passions. “She brought the passion to the table about the concern for different animals, but in my opinion she was reasonable about it at all times,” he said, noting Burns also led campaigns against pregnant mares’ urine barns in Manitoba. “She might have been labelled as a radical or an activist … but I never saw that.”

Searching for a career change in the 1990s, Burns applied for the position of executive director of the Winnipeg Humane Society because she loved cats and dogs. “I had no idea about the rest of the world of animals,” she said. “I didn’t have a clue about the hog industry, or anything.” Soon after she took her new job, Burns starting getting calls from Manitobans concerned about sow stalls. The province’s hog industry was booming in the late 1980s and early 1990s as new barns popped up across the landscape. To educate herself, Burns talked to Manitoba Pork Council representatives and animal science professors at the University of Manitoba. She also visited several hog barns to get a first-hand look at sow stalls. After seeing the sows, which were unable to turn around in their confined stalls, Burns was convinced this wasn’t the right way to raise livestock. “I just had this really strong sense that what we were doing to farm animals … I just didn’t feel it was right,” said Burns, who locks eyes with her conversation partner to drive home a point. “And we, as a society, were allowing this to happen.” Different path, similar result Melissa Matlow’s career as an animal welfare advocate was solidified after she witnessed what she perceived to be animal abuse inside a slaughterhouse in Ontario.

Matlow, campaigns manager for humane and sustainable agriculture for the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) in Toronto, was touring a hog plant in the late 1990s when she saw a downer pig. A piece of machinery was dragging the pig across the floor, but the plant tour guide assured Matlow it was dead. When the visit was nearly over, Matlow saw the pig move and she realized it was alive. Slaughterhouse staff whisked her out of the area, but the experience hardened the views of a young woman who was already questioning the ethics of the livestock industry. Like most kids, Matlow was fascinated by animals as a child. Her parents grew up on farms: her father near Winnipegosis, Man., and her mother near Tamworth, Ont. Her curiosity about farm animals led her to the University of Guelph, where she studied environmental science and then completed a masters degree in industrialized agriculture. “I was exposed to the agricultural courses (at Guelph) … and the new research coming out of the farm animal welfare (program),” said Matlow, who grew up in St. Catharine’s, Ont., and now lives in Toronto. While at university, Matlow made a point of visiting farms and slaughter plants in Ontario to broaden her perspective beyond the internet and the classroom. “I really do believe it’s all about hearing the different sides of an argument … finding consensus and moving forward together. It’s a philosophy I believe in and take to my work at WSPA,” said Matlow, who graduated in the late 1990s and began working for the WSPA in 2005. In her work with the WSPA, Matlow has written or helped produce several reports condemning practices in the livestock sector, including a paper this spring looking at the hidden costs of industrialized animal agriculture in Canada.

ANIMAL ADVOCATE GROUPS Dozens of non-governmental organizations advocate for improved farm animal welfare in Canada. The organizations include:

However, Pajor suggests part of consumer distrust with animal production lies in disillusionment when they learn modern farm operations do not resemble the Old MacDonald farm of song and colouring book. “People have an expectation of how animals are supposed to be raised,” said Pajor. “When that image doesn’t really reflect reality, you lose a lot of trust.” That’s when it becomes easier for animal activists to gain sympathy and support from consumers, adding to their coffers and enabling them to marshal campaigns. Maaskant believes some of these groups, which began in the 1970s, had good initial intentions, but fundraising has now become a greater goal than animal welfare. People who donate to animal activist groups believe they are helping animal welfare, said Maaskant. These are the people producers need to reach. But how? Pajor said social media is a good tool. Websites, blogs and videos are helping producers connect with people interested in their products and how animals are raised. Farm animal care groups across the country also provide resources to producers interested in better

Numerous organizations in the United States, among them the Animal Agriculture Alliance, the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) and Protect the Harvest are all designed to present agriculture’s side of animal agriculture and counter activist claims. “As farmers and ranchers, we’ve raised pretty much everything. Except our voices,” reads the USFRA website.

“For too long the voice of farmers and ranchers has often been missing in the conversation about where food in America comes from. That changes now.” Producer openness is another important aspect, said Maaskant. Throwing open the doors of the farm operation to the public is not often practical because of efficiency and biosecurity reasons. However, Maaskant said producers

should be willing if people want to visit farms to see the source of their food. Animal agriculture practices have changed for the better over time and producers should be ready to explain it. “I think it’s something we can be proud of and something we can talk about. I’m not ashamed to show anybody what I do,” he said. “We tell each other, ‘if I can’t show anybody what I do, then I’d better look at what I’m doing.’ ” Dahl said he has a lot of confidence in consumers’ ability to sort through various messages about animal agriculture. Given reliable information, he added, they can make an informed decision. “If that information is based on fact, I think agriculture will be fine. If we do this right, it’s an opportunity, not a threat.

Updated code of practice coming for industry BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU


s consumers become more interested in how their food is produced, it becomes more important for producers to explain their practices. So says University of Calgary animal welfare professor Ed Pajor. He serves on a committee developing a new code of practice for beef cattle, which was last updated in 1991. It’s a process that began in November 2010 and is scheduled to be complete by next April. New codes of practice are also planned for the dairy, horse, hog, sheep and poultry industries. The codes are intended as blueprints for proper animal care and handling, covering food and water, housing and best practices for procedures such as dehorning, castration, tail docking and shipping. Pajor said continuation of the social licence granted to livestock producers will depend in part on how they embrace the new codes of practice. “What we’re really talking about is consumers being able to trust producers that they are doing the right thing, and that producers have a way of demonstrating that,” said Pajor. Jackie Wepruk, general manager of

the National Farm Animal Care Council, said public and producer input is now being sought into the code of practice process. “The code development committees actively work with the animal welfare advocates, but if the notion is to eliminate animal agriculture, that perspective is not one that we generally include on the code development committees because that’s a completely different discussion,” she said. However, Wepruk sees value in bringing diverse groups to the table to discuss animal welfare. The code committee includes producers, veterinarians, researchers, humane societies, government representatives and officials from restaurant and food companies. Ontario chicken producer John Maaskant supports the development of new codes, but he also notes livestock producers have a good record o f a n i m a l c a re t h a t i s s e l d o m acknowledged. “The OSPCA (Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) deals with about 14,000 complaints a year. Of that, not even one percent is farm related. And of that one percent, even less are actually situations that they have to deal with,” said Maaskant.



» CONTINUED FROM PAGE 29 Matlow’s father, Peter, supports his daughter’s decision to dedicate her career to animal welfare, even though he grew up on a farm with cows, poultry and other livestock. He’s particularly proud of how she advocates for animals. “She has an outgoing personality,” he said. “She doesn’t argue with (others) but presents her scientific facts … in a persuasive way.” Matlow may believe in listening to all sides of an issue, but she chose to change livestock agriculture by working with non-governmental organizations rather than taking a job within the industry. “I see the need to push things further along. I’ve been impatient with change. (It’s) too slow for me…. Yeah, I’m an activist,” she said, with a laugh. Nonetheless, an activist is not the same as an extremist, Matlow said. “No. Absolutely not. I don’t see how ensuring that (animals) are well looked after and highly respected, as they are raised for food … is extreme. It’s something that most Canadians care about and most farmers care about it too.” Vegetarian? Besides the extremist label, Burns and Matlow are familiar with the other stereotype associated with animal welfare advocates, that they’re all vegetarians who want everyone to stop eating meat. Certainly, there are groups pushing veganism or vegetarianism, Burns


and never ate meat again.” Despite their advocacy for ethical treatment of livestock, both women said they wouldn’t eat meat even if animals were raised humanely. In Burns’ case, she lost interest in eating meat over the last decade. Matlow hasn’t touched meat since the day she threw out her sandwich, so becoming a carnivore again would be difficult. How have things changed?

Activists lobbied the Manitoba government to ban sow stalls, voicing concerns that the animals had no room to move or turn around. | COUNCIL FOR AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY / EGEBJERG INTERNATIONAL PHOTO said, but the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies advocates for alternative production systems rather than the abolition of animal agriculture. Similarly, the WSPA isn’t anti-meat, Matlow said. It encourages consumers and producers to make what it calls humane and sustainable choices, such as free-run eggs. Yet on its website, the WSPA says the current rate of meat consumption in Canada and around the world is environmentally and socially

unsustainable. “Canadians are among the highest meat consumers in the world,” Matlow said. “It’s an uncomfortable topic. But it’s something we have to discuss.” When asked about their eating habits, both women said they are vegetarians. Burns said she became a vegetarian after visiting hog barns in Manitoba. “I still cook ham for my family at Easter…. My kids eat meat. I’ve never tried to promote it. I think it’s a very personal decision.”

Matlow became a vegetarian on a fateful day in Grade 12. As part of a class assignment, she invited an animal welfare activist to speak to her class. Matlow was expecting the guest to speak about testing cosmetics on rabbits and related issues. Instead, the speaker shared troubling information about the treatment of farm animals. “That was my first time being exposed to farm animal welfare problems. I had a meat sandwich in my lunch that day. I just threw it out

Burns said it was an uphill task when she began talking to the public about sow stalls in the 1990s. Most Canadians had lost their connection to the farm, and livestock care was not on their minds. But after two decades of animal welfare protests, newspaper editorials and YouTube videos on the topic, many North Americans now want to know how their pork chop was produced. “Ask any minister of agriculture and they typically tell you they receive more letters on the treatment on animals … than any other issue in their portfolio,” Matlow said. Barring a career change, it’s possible Matlow will continue to fight for progressive livestock practices for many more decades. Burns’ career isn’t over, but she now understands why she fought for more ethical treatment of farm animals. “I’ve realized what motivates me the most, is knowing that I’m doing something to decrease suffering, whether it’s humans or animals. Some people are going to think that’s sappy. But it’s the truth.”


Toronto pro-vegan ad campaign provokes frank discussion Posters compare pets, livestock | Consumers asked to rethink choices BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU


bout one million commuters ride Toronto’s subway each day, so it’s a safe bet a few of them are now vegetarians thanks to provocative ads posted inside the subway cars last fall and this winter. The ads, sponsored by the Toronto Vegetarian Association, included an image of a puppy and a piglet with the tagline — “Why love one but eat the other?” The other images in the public awareness campaign featured the same question with photos of a Labrador retriever and a calf, and a kitten and a chick. Toronto Vegetarian Association executive director David Alexander said the organization isn’t pressuring Canadians to eat chickpeas instead of chicken. Rather, the ads were designed to initiate a dialogue. “It was a good campaign. It was something that got (people) thinking about these issues. It didn’t necessarily convert them, but it started a conversation,” he said. Alexander said the ads also encouraged consumers to question why they eat what they eat. “Consider what choosing a steak means for a cow or choosing bacon means for a pig.” Lisa Kramer, a University of Toronto finance professor who is a vegan

Maple Leaf Foods executive SaskTel users face calls for innovation funding new roaming fees Industry support | Dollars needed to support hog industry, says McAlpine Out-of-province calls | Crown corporation’s BY BARRY WILSON about why the industry is responding Still, Maple Leaf Foods has commit- 4G customers alerted of ‘billing correction’ OTTAWA BUREAU

A senior Maple Leaf Foods executive says government savings from reduced farm support payments over the next five years should be redirected to research and industry support. Rory McAlpine, the company’s vice-president for government and industry relations, told the House of Commons agriculture committee last week that the next five-year Growing Forward farm policy should put more emphasis on research, food safety and trade. “In Growing Forward two, we hope that strong commodity prices will allow rebalancing in favour of more support for science innovation, food safety, animal health, international trade and environmental protection,” he said. In particular, he said the government should find money to help the hog industry respond to retailer and consumer demand to convert hog operations from gestation stalls to open housing. “I believe there needs to be a program,” said McAlpine when pressed

to complaints about sow crates and why the government should support the conversion. “This is a huge cost, particularly for small producers, and there is a very logical public policy reason why some government assistance to get us there would be very helpful and make it to a point where we can make it almost a competitive advantage for the Canadian industry,” he said. McAlpine did not say how much support should be offered to the hog industry to convert to open housing, and no MP asked the question. He also argued that the next farm policy framework should provide more money for research. Ottawa’s support for hog industry research projects aimed at shortterm goals is welcome, he said. “But we see an erosion of publicly funded agri-food research in Canada and under-funding of meat and livestock compared to the crop sector.” He said the Canadian livestock industry has gone through upheaval in recent years, mainly because of cost increases, a market price slump and a strong Canadian dollar.


ted to spend $560 million by 2014 on system upgrades and consolidation to meet market demands, said McAlpine. Brian Read, XL Foods vice-president for government and industry relations, told the committee that Canada had a trade deficit in beef products with the United States last year. “It happened last year for the first time in my short meat career,” he said. Read also said the beef industry round table system started by Ottawa in 2003 in the aftermath of the BSE crisis has been useful. It allows producers, processors and further processors to talk and understand each other’s business better “so they know that we’re not always ripping them off.” However, he said that does not change the basic packing industry business model. “We do try to buy the livestock as cheap as possible and we try to sell the meat for the most money we can get for it,” he said. “That’s business and we try to stay in business to make money.”



SaskTel is alerting its cellular customers of a forthcoming “billing correction” that could see their tab grow while travelling outside of Saskatchewan. Effective June 11, long distance charges will be applied to cellular customers for incoming calls on their wireless devices while roaming within Canada. Long distance charges apply if users are out of the province and exceed the minutes allotted for outof-province roaming in their service plan.  The move affects 100,000 customers on the crown corporation’s 4G network, launched in 2010.  “It’s not changes that we’re making to our plans or anything like that,” said SaskTel spokesperson Michelle Englot. “It’s charges that customers were not being billed for that they should have been billed for that fell outside of their current plans.” The rest of SaskTel’s customers are on its older CDMA network and

have always been charged for incoming calls while roaming. Customers on the newer 4G network have ducked those fees because of “a few billing issues” related to the launch of the 4G network, said Englot. “So rather than hold off on launching our network, we decided to live with these charges because they weren’t significant,” said Englot. “ T h e y ’ re b a s i c a l l y c a l l s t hat would’ve been outside of customers’ calling plans. For the most part, people know what’s included in their plans and what is included in their plans meets all of their calling needs.” She said another “correction” is yet to come for incoming calls while roaming internationally. The changes are only for voice calls and won’t affect a user’s data service plan while travelling between provinces.  “When it all boils down to it, that’s the most important thing, for people to understand what plan they’re on and what’s included in their plan,” said Englot.






Bat disease may threaten prairie crops White nose syndrome | Manitoba wildlife officials mindful of potential outbreak after disease appears in four provinces BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Wildlife officials in Manitoba are worried that a disease killing bats in Eastern Canada will soon arrive in Manitoba. White nose syndrome could have serious consequences for crop production in the province, said Bill Watkins, provincial conservation zoologist. The small mammals eat a host of insects that destroy crops, such as beetles, crickets, moths, grasshoppers and midges. “Collectively, they eat a lot of insects,” Watkins said. “There are some statistics available that suggest a bat will eat its own weight, every night, in insects.” A paper published last year in the journal Science attempted to estimate the bats’ economic contribution to crop production in North America. Assuming a single little brown bat consumes four to eight grams of insects per night, one million bats would consume 660 to 1,320 tonnes of insects during the growing season. Overall, bats are worth $3.7 to $53 billion a year to U.S. agriculture, the paper noted. Using a median figure, the authors said bats likely save American farmers $23 billion in

White nose syndrome has killed millions of bats in the United States. | GOVERNMENT OF ONTARIO PHOTO annual pesticide costs. Those figures are rough estimates, but there is no doubt that bats provide a valuable ecological service in North America. As a result, a white nose syndrome outbreak in Manitoba caves will affect farmers because those bats spread across the province in the summer to feed on insects. White nose syndrome first appeared in the eastern United States in 2006, when dead bats were discovered in caves around Albany,

New York. The disease killed more than 90 percent of bats in infected caves, essentially wiping out entire colonies. “The vulnerable (bat) species seem to be the ones that collect and hibernate. It spreads from bat to bat because they are all clustered very closely,” Watkins said. Biologists have since detected the disease inside bat caves in 16 U.S. states and four Canadian provinces. “Since then, it has spread widely throughout the New England states, into the Midwest, the Maritimes, Quebec and Ontario,” Watkins said. “The nearest known location (to Manitoba) right now is just on the other side of Lake Superior, the northeast shore.” A cave in New Brunswick had 6,000 bats in 2010 before the disease arrived. By 2012, only five bats remained in the cave and all five were infected with white nose syndrome. The disease was named after the white fungus that grows by the bat’s nose. The fungus develops on the bat’s skin and for reasons that biologists don’t entirely understand, it causes the mammals to wake up during hibernation. “The details are still confusing,” Watkins said. “But it appears the bats are arousing frequently during the

winter and using up what little fat stores they have.” According to U.S. estimates, white nose syndrome has killed five to six million bats across the U.S., said Ted Leighton, executive director of the Canadian Co-operative Wildlife Health Centre in Saskatoon. Canadian biologists don’t know how many bats have died from the disease because many caves aren’t monitored and others aren’t accessible. However, biologists are finding dead bats outside caves in Canada, which is a clear sign of the disease. “Most of the time (in Canada), what we detect is bats flying during the day in late winter, when they should still be hibernating,” Leighton said. “That’s a marker of the disease because they’ve run out of fat stores and they’re starving.” The wildlife centre, university biologists and provincial wildlife specialists in Canada have formed a group to tackle white nose syndrome. It has borrowed a U.S. management plan for white nose syndrome and adapted it for Canada. “Canada’s wildlife directors have agreed it’s an appropriate plan, but it’s not funded,” Leighton said. The U.S. government is funding cave monitoring and research to study white nose syndrome, and

BAT FACTS • three species of bats, the little brown bat, northern long eared bat and big brown bat, hibernate inside caves in Manitoba • white nose syndrome was first detected in Canada in winter of 2009-10 in caves in Ontario and Quebec • the disease, a fungus that grows on bat’s skin, causes the mammals to wake up more frequently during hibernation. Consequently, the bats starve to death over the winter Source: Staff research

Leighton said federal funding is also needed in Canada. “Right now, we really don’t have the funds to properly monitor this disease,” he said. “That’s why we don’t know as much about this in Canada as we’d like to.” The Manitoba government is asking explorers to stay out of bat caves because humans may be spreading the disease from colony to colony. Anyone who knows of a site in the province where bats fly in and out of an opening in the ground should alert a conservation officer or another government representative.

Savvy marketing essential for niche producers Value-added ventures | Growers find ways to spark consumer interest with unique products and production methods BY JEFFREY CARTER FREELANCE WRITER

Jan and Harold Schooley hope their small lavender acreage will complement apple sales and other enterprises at their Ontario farm. | JEFFREY CARTER PHOTOS

SIMCOE, Ont. — Specialty crops are providing a growing number of Ontario farmers with niche market opportunities. Jan and Harold Schooley at Apple Hill Lavender are among a small group of farmers in the province producing lavender. The Schooleys, who farm near Simcoe, say it’s a high-value crop that requires marketing savvy. They plan to pull traffic from a busy highway to their farm with their purple field and a silo to match. “If you’re living in Toronto surrounded with cement all the time, getting out to a place like this is just

wonderful,” Jan said. “Lavender contains an essential oil. It has a calming effect on people.” The Schooleys plan to sell dried lavender and oil distilled from the plant’s flowers. They feel the crop is a nice complement to their apple production and to their daughter’s Raging Bowl Pottery business on the farm. They grow 8,500 plants on their three and a half acres and last year produced five litres of oil. Jan said the oil is worth $1.25 to $2 per millilitre in Ontario. They also plan to earn income by charging a fee for garden tours and special events. The Schooleys have spent several thousand dollars on their lavender investment. The plants cost 50 cents each and they have bought a stem distiller and plan to build a retail shop. A considerable amount of work is involved. The crop is hand harvested, and the distilling processes, carried out in 18-kilogram batches, takes about 11 days. Lavender is native to the Mediterranean and is produced on an industrial scale in Bulgaria and France. Just a few kilometres from the Schooleys, Jason and Jackie Ryder and their neighbours, Ed and Sandy DeHooghe, are breathing new life into an old niche market. They recently bought Dennis Horseradish, which has been operating in the Delhi-area for the past half century. Jason Ryder said there are only two horseradish producers in Ontario. Lounsbury Foods, which produces the Cedarvale brand, is larger but Ryder plans to expand his market in Ontario and Western Canada under the company’s Stallion brand. “A lot of people who use it are 40-plus in age,” he said. “I want the younger generation to know there’s more to horseradish than the traditional uses for it.” In many Canadian homes, horseradish is simply used as a condiment to accompany roast beef or steak. Ryder said it can also be used on hamburgers, other meat and potatoes, add zest to salads and as a key

ingredient in making Caesar salad. Along with marketing horseradish and several horseradish blends, Ryder and his partners have started marketing the crown portion of the root as a fresh product. It’s sold through retailers in Toronto. It has less heat than the smaller root sections when peeled and shredded, and is especially popular among in Canada’s Jewish community. The crop is planted in a similar manner to potatoes in late April or early May using new-growth sections of the root. About half is harvested in the fall and the remainder in early spring. “We have control from when the seed goes into the ground to when it’s put into jars,” he said. “It’s one of those crops that’s not hard to grow.” White asparagus is another unique crop in the Delhi-Simcoe area. Peter and Leesa Janssen are the only farmers in Ontario, and perhaps all of Canada, growing the crop using traditional European methods and cultivar on four acres. White asparagus varieties have a thick skin that must be peeled away before cooking. “It’s totally different. With the white asparagus soup, I’m telling you, it’s like walking into heaven. It’s creamier and it’s sweeter,” Leesa said. The crop requires considerable labour. It is planted on level ground but special equipment imported from Europe is used two to three times per season to create and maintain hills into which the asparagus spears grow. Plastic that is black on one side and white on the other cover the hills. The black faces upward in cooler weather to absorb heat, while the white is used to reflect it when it’s warm. Workers harvest the crop by looking for cracks in the soil, reaching into the earth and removing the spears using a special knife. From there, the vegetables are washed and packed. Customers buy it at the Janssens’ farm during the asparagus season, but Toronto restaurants are the main market.

Orchardists learn best ways to help environment Irrigation, nitrogen use | Researchers examine production practices that retain carbon in the soil or send it to the plants BY TERRY EDWARDS FREELANCE WRITER

KELOWNA, B.C. — British Columbia researchers are studying how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while improving irrigation and fertilizer practices on Okanagan orchards and Fraser Valley berry farms. “The investigations … will improve our understanding and help increase yields, while still reducing agriculture’s environmental footprint in the Okanagan,” said Miriam Grant, the University of British Columbia’s viceprovost and dean of research. Soil microbiologists Melanie Jones and Louise Nelson and hydro geologist Craig Nichol will examine the long-term greenhouse gas fluxes (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide) from three ongoing research trials of grapes, raspberries and apples in response to varying irrigation and fertilization practices. “My part of the project is looking at the soil micro-organisms (bacteria) that are involved in the nitrogen cycle,” said Nelson. “In particular, we’re going to be looking at the nitrifying and denitrifying populations, both of which can contribute to nitrous oxide emissions.” Nelson will look at the activity of two different soil populations that can contribute to nitrous oxide, and examine the effects of different types of irrigation and different nitrogen fertilizer applications. She said agriculture is a major source of nitrous oxide, contributing 70 percent of the nitrous oxide in greenhouse gas emissions. “Nitrous oxide is 300 times more potent than carbon dioxide in its ability to retain heat, so it’s a very potent greenhouse gas. What we want to do is figure out which practices will minimize the amount of nitrous oxide emitted. At the end, hopefully we’ll be able to say to the farmer, your best bet if you’re interested in growing a good crop but keeping greenhouse gas emissions to a minimum would be to use this type of irrigation system and you should apply your nitrogen this way.” The researchers will analyze soil samples and measure greenhouse gases at apple and grape plots in Summerland and raspberry plots in Agassiz. Jones will study isotopes of carbon

Craig Nichols and Melanie Jones are part of a research team from the University of British Columbia, Okanagan, investigating how irrigation and fertilization practices affect greenhouse gas emissions. | TERRY EDWARDS PHOTO from soil samples to determine what portion of the carbon dioxide coming out of the soil is being emitted from old soil carbon and what portion is from new carbon. New carbon is carbon that the plant has recently photosynthesized, converted to sugars, sent to the roots and released as carbon dioxide. However, some of the other carbon in the soil, known as old carbon, is sequestered unless microbes break it down or it is released by agricultural practices. “Basically, we would like to find production practices that encourage more carbon to stay in the soil: more carbon being taken in through photosynthesis, being sent down to the roots and staying in the soil, either in dead roots or as organic matter, rather than it being respired back out again,” Jones said. Carbon occurs in slightly different weights, also known as isotopes. By measuring those differences, researchers can determine if the carbon dioxide that’s being respired by the soil is coming from carbon dioxide that the plant has just photosynthesized or from carbon sequestered in the soil. Nichol’s group will measure greenhouse gas emissions with two types

different types of fertilization and different types of surface cover of mulch or compost,” Nichol said. “We’ll have anywhere between one and four chambers in each plot to cover parts of a row or next to a dripper or in the alleyway between rows, so we may have somewhere between 100 or 150 with each site.” Jones said the project, which received $1.2 million from Agriculture Canada, is in response to a global concern about greenhouse

gas emissions. She said agriculture may not be as an intensive a contributor as major industrial complexes, but it still needs to be studied. “Because agriculture occurs over such a large part of the landscape, it has the potential to have an influence. The water use part is key as well,” she said. “The end product that we have promised to the government, that the government demands as part of this program, is that we will recommend best practices for orchardists and berry producers that will maximize both efficient practices and reduction of greenhouse gases, the carbon sequestration and the reduction of the nitrous oxide together with the efficient use of water.” Researchers from New Zealand are also involved in the project, examining carbon sequestration and determining how to sequester more carbon in the soil and release less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. “The people from New Zealand have this very sophisticated technique that they are going to be bringing here for us and working with us,” Nelson said. Jones, who is the lead researcher on the Canadian team, said this project presents a unique opportunity for her scientists. “There’s so much opportunity for advancement if we work with scientists in other disciplines. As a soil microbiologist, I had never worked on a project together with an expert in gas emissions and so that’s what really excites me.”

Ecojustice files lawsuit seeking sage-grouse’s protection Bird numbers plummet in Canada | Energy, infrastructure blamed for greater sage-grouse demise since 1988 BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Organizations concerned about the future of the greater sage-grouse are stepping up their pressure on Ottawa to save the endangered species. Ecojustice filed a lawsuit against the federal environment minister in February to force Peter Kent to recommend emergency protection for the birds. A provision in the Species At Risk Act provides for this action. With no word by May 17, the organization planned to ask the court to intervene. Melissa Gorrie, a lawyer for the notfor-profit organization, said the government will not even say whether Kent has made a decision on the request, let alone what the decision is. She said officials cite cabinet confidentiality. “This is a ministerial decision,” she said. “It’s a statutory duty he’s required to comply with.” About 90 percent of the Canadian population of sage-grouse, known for the males’ elaborate courtship dance, died off between 1988 and 2006. Energy and infrastructure development have destroyed critical habitat the birds need to survive. The species was listed as endan-

90 %

OF CANADA’S SAGEGROUSE POPULATION DIED BETWEEN 1988 AND 2006 gered in 1998 but population continues to decline. This year’s count is still underway, but in 2011 there were only 13 males in Alberta and 35 in Saskatchewan’s Grasslands National Park, which is considered the only viable population in Canada. The lawsuit filed on behalf of the Alberta Wilderness Association, the Wilderness Committee, Nature Saskatchewan and Grassland Naturalists seeks to prevent extinction. Mark Boyce, a sage-grouse expert from the University of Alberta, said the federal government has developed a recovery plan but never implemented anything on the ground. He said the legislation allows Ottawa to push the provinces to do something if they fail to provide adequate conservation measures for critical habitat. “The provincial government in

Alberta clearly has not done anything to protect critical habitat for sage-grouse, so therefore the federal government ought to be mandating that it happen or actually intervene according to the Species at Risk Act,” Boyce said. However, he doesn’t expect that to happen. Meanwhile, he said the efforts that Montana and Alberta officials have taken to move birds from the state to the province aren’t likely to work. About 40 birds were recently captured and relocated. The real issue is habitat, Boyce said, and the habitat to ensure the bird’s survival doesn’t exist. “Bringing some up from Montana to die doesn’t really make a lot of sense to me,” he said. “There has to be habitat for them in the first place, and it’s the loss of habitat that’s resulted in the loss of the birds.” The sage-grouse might survive for a few months, he said, but the effect of the move will only be temporary. The birds might have stood a chance if an effort had been made to increase habitat by removing oil wells and planting sage brush, he added. “Montana doesn’t have that many birds to be able to spare them for such a fruitless effort.”

South Koreans head to countryside Government incentives | Stress and competition for jobs is driving many to a slower paced, but less profitable life M U N G Y E O N G, S o u t h Ko r e a (Reuters) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A year ago, South Korean executive Chung Man-gyoo spent weekdays driving his Hyundai Grandeur sedan through the jammed streets of Seoul to his suburban office. On the weekends he drove it to the golf course. Now, the 53-year-old fills the rear seat of the same black car with tools and fertilizer for his one-acre farm. His golf clubs lie unused except when his wife swings them to chase stray cats away from their house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss life in the city at all,â&#x20AC;? said Chung, who used to work for an electronics company that supplied components to Samsung Electronics.

Chung, one of the growing number of South Koreans moving back to the countryside, lives in Mungyeong, a small farming town in the eastern hills, where it takes an hour by car to get to the nearest train station. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My wife misses the pizza delivery sometimes,â&#x20AC;? joked Chung, as he sat on his porch in a short-sleeved shirt, sipping juice made from the berry bushes he now tends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I now wake up in the morning with pleasure. I also have more time to be with my wife and talk with her. Our relationship has never been closer.â&#x20AC;? The Asian Development Bank estimates that Asiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urban population will rise by 1.1 billion people by 2030

to account for 55 percent of the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total population, up from 40 percent in 2005. South Korea is a notable exception. Large numbers of people migrated to Korean cities in the 1970s and 1980s as the country industrialized and job opportunities grew quickly. Their children got access to education and then stayed on in the cities. As South Korea made the leap from poverty to rich nation status in a generation, it turned into Asiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most

urbanized country, apart from city states such as Singapore. More than half its 50 million people live in or near Seoul. The capital has eight times the population density of New York City and three times that of Tokyo. But according to government statistics, 10,503 families left Korean cities in 2011 to take up farming, more than double the number in 2010. For many, the constant need to compete for jobs, promotion and space in the city was just not worth it.

I began asking myself, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;what am I doing,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153; said Yoon Woo Jin, 32, who quit his real estate job a month ago and plans to move to the countryside with his wife. Koreaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activist government, which, hand in hand with big business, drove the rapid industrialization of the 1970s to create what is now the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 13th largest economy, wants to breathe life back into rural communities.

If you want to make a lot of money, you should stay in the city. You have to leave your greed behind. CHUNG MAN-GYOO SOUTH KOREAN FARMER

“We plan to increase the number of households moving back to 20,000 by providing support in the form of tax benefits and financial aid,” said agriculture minister Suh Kyu-young. The ministry said people want to move “to live a life worthy of human dignity” in a country where the average worker puts in 2,200 hours per year, the highest in the developed world, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Yoon was one of 52 people between 26 and 60 who attended a recent government-backed class in Seoul run by a voluntar y body called Refarm, where professors and those who have made a successful transition teach the next generation of hopefuls. The government has touted the success of some of those who have opted for country life, dubbing farming a “Blue Ocean” of potential and wealth, where incomes of more than $88,000 a year can be made. One such success story is Suh Jeong-deok, a former head researcher for Hanwha Chemical Corp., whose earnings place him in the top 1.42 percent of farm incomes, based on government data.

But it was ill-health and a hypercompetitive school system, which sees even pre-school children packed into crammed schools in a bid to get a head start, that made Suh, the father of two teenage girls, opt out. Around 72 percent of elementary, middle and high-school students have extra tutoring, according to Statistics Korea. Stress and the country’s “exam hell” have made suicide the leading cause of death for young people aged 15 to 24, claiming 13 lives out of every 100,000, government data shows. “My wife used to push our children in elementary school,” said 49-yearold Suh, who has been farming cucumbers for the past three years. “Instead of forcing our children to reach our expectations, we decided to lower our bar.” Leaving the city does have its downside. Farm incomes are generally markedly lower, averaging 28,000 won a year, according to government data, against the average city income of 36,000 won. Many farming families rely on government handouts to survive, with agricultural subsidies accounting for 45 percent of farmer’s incomes, according to the OECD, more than double what is paid to farmers in the European Union. “Our students believe in ‘voluntary poverty,’ meaning that one must sacrifice wealth in order to be closer to nature,” said Park Yong-bum, the head of Refarm. The last time Koreans moved back to the countryside in similar numbers to today was during the Asian financial crisis in the late 1990s,


Cost of high protein feed hurts EU pig producers AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands (Reuters) — Europe’s pig farmers are struggling to maintain production, caught between a slide in pork prices and a rise in the cost of protein-rich soybean meal and rapeseed meal used in compound feed. The price of soybean meal has surged nearly 40 percent this year. Along with rapeseed meal it is used as the main source of protein in compound feed. “There is very strong demand for spot contracts, which means that the industry is not well covered,” one trader said. “Demand will remain strong as there is no alternative. You need your proteins.” T h e E U h i g h p ro t e i n ( h i p ro ) soymeal spot contract was quoted at $524 a tonne US f.o.b. Rotterdam versus $383 in January. Argentine hipro was quoted at $518 a tonne, up from $377 in January. Rapeseed meal spot contracts were quoted at $320 a tonne, up from $243 in January. Droughts in South American key growing areas, along with strong demand from China, the world’s largest importer of soybeans, have boosted prices of soybeans and other oilseeds. At the same time, pig farming in Germany, the country’s largest livestock sector, is suffering as meat processing companies bowed to pressure from retailers and accepted a five cent price cut per kilo live animal weight.


when thousands lost their jobs and looked to their hometowns for support. However, they flocked back to the cities and factories as soon as the crisis was over and industrial Korea started to boom again. This time it looks to be different. A report by the Korea Rural Economics Institute found that only seven percent of those who went to the countr yside said they were unhappy with farm life, despite the lower incomes. Kim Jeong Seop, a researcher at the institute, said many of the farms being taken up by the former city dwellers are small, and perhaps uneconomical, in a country where a typical rice farmer needs at least 16 acres to earn the kind of income levels seen in the city. Just 7.4 percent of those migrating to the countryside own seven acres or more, Kim said. As well, life will become more difficult as Korea liberalizes its agricultural imports. The country has already signed a series of free trade agreements with the United States and European Union and others are due to follow. “It’s going to be harder to make a living from farming, and our government is encouraging people to go farm. The government is sending contradictory signals,” he said. Chung used to earn $78,000 a year in the city. His income as a farmer last year was $17,000. But he said it was worth it. “If you want to make a lot of money, you should stay in the city,” he said. “ You have to leave your greed behind.”


Rising demand ups Deere forecast Agricultural manufacturing | Record high farm income is boosting equipment sales (Reuters) — Deere & Co. has posted higher quarterly earnings and sales that topped estimates and raised its full-year profit outlook on rising global demand for farm equipment. The farm sector is booming on higher worldwide food demand and as biofuels help drive up crop production. Companies like Deere are benefiting from record-high farm income that is spurring farmers to update their equipment. “Deere is hitting on all cylinders,” said Gary Bradshaw, portfolio manager at Hodges Capital in Dallas. Sales increased by double digits in the agriculture, and construction and forestry equipment divisions during the quarter. “Trying to feed everyone, and with more folks going into the middle class that want to eat more meat and protein, you need to feed more cattle and hogs and plant more corn, milo and wheat,” Bradshaw said. With commodities prices up, farmers’ “pockets are full and they

tend to run and buy more equipment.” The world’s largest farm equipment maker said fiscal secondquarter net income rose to $1.056 billion, or $2.61 per share, from $904.3 million, or $2.12 a share, a year ago. The results topped the average estimate of $2.53. Net sales of equipment operations rose to $9.4 billion from $8.33 billion a year earlier. Worldwide net sales and revenues increased 12 percent to $10.01 billion in the quarter, above the average estimate of $9.7 billion. The company also raised its forecast for 2012 net income to about $3.35 billion from $3.275 billion.

High protein soymeal contracts have gone from $383 per tonne in January to $524 in April. | FILE PHOTO “The significant fall is an affront to pig farmers who are currently struggling with the impact of ever-rising feed costs,” said Franz-Josef Moellers, vice-president of the German Farmers Association. The double impact of high feed prices and falling pork prices was something which “pig farmers will not be able to survive for much longer,” he said. Europe’s livestock sector has been in decline over the past few years as farmers suffered from high feed costs and the expenses associated with ensuring higher standards of animal care.

China rejects U.S. pork BEIJING, China — China’s quarantine bureau rejected a consignment of U.S. pork after tests found traces of a banned drug in meat shipments totalling 103.5 tonnes. There was no threat of broader retaliatory measures. The March shipments of frozen

pork meat and pig parts were found to contain ractopamine, which is banned in China, but is used in some countries, including the United States, as a feed additive to make meat leaner. In December, the bureau rejected entry of 23.5 tonnes of U.S. pork for the same reason. If a rash of such cases were to be found over time, China could in theory impose more restrictive barriers to U.S. imports, but the amounts involved are tiny compared with its overall import volume and imports also help Beijing moderate domes-

tic food inflation. A slowdown in pork purchases by China, the world’s biggest producer and consumer of the meat, could add pressure on U.S. hog futures prices. WORLD TRADE

Restraint philosophy may hit farm spending WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — Pressure around the world to cut


government spending and accelerate economic growth has improved the environment for talks about reducing farm subsidies, one of the most sensitive areas of trade, a top U.S. official said. “I do think the overall economic situation in all of our countries puts us in a better position to have a more thoughtful conversation about farming support than we have (had) in a very long time,” U.S. trade representative Ron Kirk said in remarks at the U.S. State Department. Farm support programs are on the agenda in the proposed TransPacific Partnership agreement covering the United States and eight other countries in the Asia-Pacific. U.S. dairy and sugar producers, in particular, are concerned their government programs could suffer from a deal in those talks. Canada is trying to gain entry into TPP discussions, but the supplymanaged sector, which includes dairy and poultry, have expressed similar concerns. WORLD PRODUCTION

Japanese company in line to buy Gavilon TOKYO, Japan (Reuters) — Marubeni Corp. is in advanced talks to buy American grain and energy trader Gavilon for about $5.2 billion US including debt, a source close to the deal said, as Japanese trading houses continue an overseas buying spree to secure grain supplies. Japan’s five big trading houses have been spending billions of dollars in recent years to buy natural resources on the back of a strong yen and a decade-long commodities boom. Concerns about China grabbing more of the world’s food supply have led them to expand in farm commodities, particularly in the United States and Canada. As well as securing domestic supplies, they are looking to position themselves to supply China’s growing demand. HEALTH

HAMBURG, Germany (Reuters) — Rain has helped rapeseed crops in the top European Union producers France, Germany and Britain but the EU is still likely to face a smaller crop of its most important oilseed this year, analysts and traders said. “Rain has helped the German, French and British crops after a very dry period,” one rapeseed trader said. “But I think it is more a case of stopping reductions in crop forecasts rather than changing the overall outlook of a smaller crop.” A bitter cold snap in much of Europe in February and March damaged rapeseed in several countries and plants were further weakened by dryness in March and early April. Rapeseed is the main oilseed for EU vegetable oil output and is also a key biodiesel ingredient. The EU’s 2012 rapeseed crop may fall to a six-year low of 18.21 million tonnes from 19.1 million tonnes in 2011, German oilseeds analysts Oil World said. AGRIBUSINESS

U.S., Japanese farm co-ops unite CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — The biggest farm co-operatives in the United States and Japan are joining forces to improve delivery of U.S. wheat and barley to the biggest buyer, the latest sign of growing competitive pressure and supply anxiety in the global grain market. China’s fast-growing appetite for imported grain and foodstuffs has fuelled concerns about the availability of global food supplies, with some firms shifting to favour longterm deals over spot buying. At the same time, several major takeovers or deals among the world’s leading grain merchants have stoked interest among Asian companies to get a bigger foothold in key markets. Marubeni Corp. is the leading contender to buy American grain trader Gavilon. Minnesota-based CHS Inc., owned by farmers and ranchers across the United States, will own 51 percent of a joint venture with Japan’s Zen-Noh. The joint venture, called CZL Inc., will primarily supply wheat and barley grown in the United States, Canada and Australia to Japan. The deal gives Zen-Noh a stronger base in the United States, where it already runs a joint venture with

Food manufacturers and lawmakers feel multiple strategies are necessary to lower obesity rates. | FILE PHOTO

Report embraces obesity initiative NEW YORK, N.Y. (Reuters) — America’s obesity epidemic is so deeply rooted that it will take dramatic and systemic measures, from overhauling farm policies and zoning laws to possibly introducing a soda tax, to fix it, the influential Institute of Medicine has said. In a 478 page report, the IOM refutes the idea that obesity is largely the result of a lack of willpower on the part of individuals. It embraces policy proposals that have met with stiff resistance from the food industry and lawmakers, arguing that multiple strategies will be needed to make the U.S. environment less “obesogenic.” The IOM, part of the Washington-based National Academies, offers advice to the government and others on health issues. Its report was released at the Weight of the Nation conference, a three-day meeting hosted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

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.

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.

Ditch mowing begins June 7 Between June 7 and July 15, farmers and ranchers are reminded that Ministry contractors will be mowing a four-metre wide strip only on the shoulders of heavily-travelled highways. These include highways 1, 7, 11, 16, 39, along with portions of highways 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10 and 55.) Other highways won’t receive a shoulder cut during this period, but some highway intersections may receive a full ditch cut. From July 15 until fall, contractors will continue mowing in the right-of-way, which will include the entire width along all four-lane highways. All other highways will receive a shoulder cut. Additional mowing may be conducted near interchanges, railway crossings, tourism facilities, approaches and as required for visibility and for control of weeds and brush. Hay salvage opportunities and the progress of contracted mowers are weather dependent.

Hay along highways in Saskatchewan is available for free salvage by farmers and ranchers. Producers may cut hay anytime during the spring or summer months, with landowners or lessees nearest/adjacent to the ditch having the first option to cut or bale this material prior to July 8. After July 8, anyone may cut and bale the hay without permission from the nearby landowner, provided salvage operations haven’t been initiated. The hay must be cut at a uniform height, leaving a neat appearance and bales of hay must be placed no less than eight metres away from the shoulder of the highway. Bales must be removed by August 8 and if any are left after that date, in a location deemed to be hazardous to motorists, they may be removed by the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure.

Tracks made for tractor without altering design Different approach | Website explains unique track engineering BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

Soucy International had something to say when it launched a new website recently. The rubber track manufacturer from Drummondville, Que., wanted to explain to farmers how its engineers design special track sets and hardware for specific tractors. There’s no such thing as one-sizefits-all at Soucy when it comes to tractors, said marketing manager Vincent Cabana-Vaudrin. He said the simple bolt-on kit for mounting rubber tracks is fine for combines, sprayers, trailers, air seeder carts and all-terrain vehicles but not when it comes to tractors. “We custom tailor our track systems for tractors. The real challenge is to keep the vehicle integrity and not put unnecessary stress on the axles,” said Cabana-Vaudrin. “Our engineers study each new tractor very carefully to adapt our track to that specific machine.


That’s why we launched this new website. We want to educate potential customers about how we develop our technology to match their machines.” Each new tractor model is shipped to the Soucy shop, where they have a sophisticated three-dimensional scanner. Engineers scan the entire machine and enter the data into their computer. Armed with information about how the implement is designed, the engineers then create a bracket system that Cabana-Vaudrin said is made for that particular tractor. The tracks must mount without any modification to the tractor. The whole kit must go on and off without torches or welding equipment. “I think we are the only company that goes through this detailed process to match tracks to the machine. We want perfect compatibility without modifying the tractor,” he said. “Other companies have bolt-on systems for tractors. They carry a

Compatibility is so important. Our engineers do a tremendous amount of research to adapt our tracks to each specific tractor. VINCENT CABANA-VAUDRIN SOUCY INTERNATIONAL

limited number of tracks they say will fit any tractor. But some of them have to move major components such as the fuel tank. Bolt-on is ideal for other implements, but it’s completely different for tractors because of the enormous load and steering.” Cabana-Vaudrin said Soucy develops the rubber track components so the finished product looks like it came directly from the tractor manufacturer. “Compatibility is so important. Our engineers do a tremendous amount of research to adapt our tracks to each specific tractor.” He said Soucy systems are not yet

The rule at Soucy is that the track system must never alter the host tractor. That means Soucy engineers are not allowed to use a bolt-on system that simply matches up wheel bolt patterns, according to Soucy’s Vincent Cabana-Vaudrin. | SOUCY PHOTO available for every power unit sold in Canada. The old website gave farmers the impression that Soucy could ship a set of rubber tracks overnight for any tractor or implement. However, he said the company doesn’t ship a set of tracks until it knows for sure the kit is right for the implement. As well, it hasn’t yet touched on all the drive-wheel combinations available in Canada. “However, farmers can go to the new website and enter their specific implement to see if we have the appropriate kit. We study the market and develop track systems for the tractor models with the biggest sales potential.” The website also includes a video showing the three-dimensional scanner that Soucy engineers use to analyze each new farm implement coming through the shop doors.

Cabana-Vaudrin said there is one other reason for the new website. “Competition in this market is getting stronger and stronger each year. Two years ago when I went to farm shows, there was our company and maybe one other company with rubber tracks. But now I go to a trade show and there’s maybe four or five or six other companies selling rubber tracks. So we needed a new website to show that we do things differently.” Rocky Mountain Dealerships’ 39 prairie dealerships will carry Soucy rubber tracks for the western Canadian market. Rocky Mountain is represented by Hi-Way Service in Alberta, Hanmer Seeds is Saskatchewan and Miller Equipment in Manitoba. For more information, contact Soucy at 819-474-6665 or visit www.

3-D scan on the right track Custom track mounting design created from three dimensional drawing BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

Designing a track mounting system using a 3-D scanner is more efficient than crawling under the tractor with a tape measure and pad of paper. It’s like science fiction come to life for Soucy engineers, who annually design hundreds of new track mounting systems for agricultural, military, construction, mining, logging and recreational vehicles. Engineers who gather information for a new track mounting design methodically survey every relevant component of the tractor with their Creaform MetraSCAN 3-D scanner. The scanner projects a laser beam onto the surface of the target object, said Louis-Etienne BouchardPouliot of Creaform in Quebec City. The laser beam bounces back to a camera integrated into the hand held MetraSCAN and gives the computer a precise image of the component and where it’s situated on the tractor. “Collecting 3-D data is the easy part. Companies have been doing that for years,” said BouchardPouliot. “What makes our system unique is the fact that we can reference all the components and their relationship to each other. We do this with an accuracy down to 0.002 (two

Soucy’s track systems designer Branislav Nanac runs a three dimensional scanner over the chassis of a new tractor model. Because the data is collected in 3-D, it provides the computer with a complete picture of the tractor so engineers can design a track mounting system that will not have a negative impact on the structural integrity of the tractor. | SOUCY PHOTOS thousandths) of an inch over the entire tractor chassis. Then we feed it all into a computer that puts the whole picture together and makes it ready for CAD (computer aided design).” Bouchard-Pouliot said the 3-D operator slowly walks around a new tractor scanning every nut, bolt, hose, casting curve and seam weld. “You hold the scanner in your hand and use the same pace and hand control as if you were spray painting with an aerosol can, gently sweeping left to right and sometimes up and down to get good coverage. Our 3-D scanners are intended to be hand held.” He said clients like the portability of the hand held scanners. “Some other companies make 3-D scanners that must be permanently installed in a lab. Our equipment fits in a shipping case so we can take it where we want.” For example, if Versatile wanted a custom-designed track mounting system, Soucy could conceivably fly to Winnipeg with its scanner rather than have a 50,000 pound tractor shipped to Quebec. Bouchard-Pouliot said Soucy engineers could climb all over the tractor and create a three dimensional drawing on the screen that would probably be just about identical to the factory blueprints where the tractor was built.

However, Soucy is only concerned with the chassis, drive line, axles, wheels, tires and hubs. Its 3-D scans are limited to parts relating to a rubber track conversion. “The software is very complex. It accepts all this data from the scanner and references the location of even the smallest part to the overall picture,” he said. “It gives Soucy guys a large picture of the tractor chassis and tells them, ‘this is my frame, this is my differential, these are my hubs.’ ” Engineers load views of the components into their CAD so they can zoom in, rotate the image, run simulated tests and do it all in real time. Information shown on the Creaform computer screen will have the exact same dimension as the original equipment manufacturer blueprints, which means Soucy engineers get the track mounting kit right the first time. A handheld 3-D camera like the one Soucy uses costs $52,000 plus another $33,000 for the accompanying hardware and software. Creaform has 17 3-D scanners on the market, with prices ranging from $30,000 to $100,000. It also has 3-D scanners in full colour. The company is relatively young, selling its first 3-D scanner in 2005. For more information, call 418833-4446 or visit www.creaform3d. com.

The Mosaic Nutrient Removal program that many farmers use to determine fertilizer requirements is now available as a free app for smart phones. The software, based on hundreds of thousands of soil samples, tells a farmer how many units of each nutrient are extracted from the soil for each unit of crop removed from the field, said Kyle Freeman, manager of new product development at Mosaic. Fertility specialists had been developing nutrient removal formulas using conventional paper charts long before they had access to modern computer technology. “The data that agronomists and farmers use today was developed by the International Plant Nutrition Institute,” said Freeman. The Institute is an independent third party group funded by the fertilizer industry. “Their research data is openly available to everyone in the industry, so the nutrient removal tables are not exclusive to Mosaic.” The free Nutrient Removal App is available for Android and Apple platforms and covers the 36 most popular crops grown in North America, including those common on the Prairies. It’s the same program that’s on Mosaic’s Back-to-Basics website. It’s also the same information available on other websites from competing fertilizer companies, Freeman said. “Every time you haul a bushel of crop off the field, you need to know how much of each nutrient went along with that crop. So yield is the only factor you need to punch into the program,” he said. “The tables are based solely on yield. It doesn’t consider weather or pests or any other mitigating factors. It’s purely yield-based. For example, if you harvest a 50 bushel bean crop, you need to figure out how much nitrogen, sulfur, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium you’ve removed.” Freeman said farmers often concentrate too much on nitrogen and overlook the importance of other nutrients. “That’s because nitrogen has the most dramatic impact,” he said. “It’s the most expensive nutrient and it’s the one nutrient that lets the farmer actually see the dollar return when he’s driving the combine.” Freeman said the extra attention given to nitrogen is one of the main reasons Mosaic made the Nutrient Removal program available as a portable app. The other reason for the app shows up in soil tests. “There was a major soil survey in 2010 showing a significant reduction in the amounts of P and K in the ground,” he said. “Yields were going up, along with fertilizer rates going up. But the balance was slipping. Farmers were extracting more than they were putting back into the soil. Soil can provide only so many nutrient units naturally.” Freeman said farmers should be more aware of the removal of all


Crop Life Magazine selected the Mosaic Nutrient Removal App as the best new app for agriculture in 2012. nutrients. The Nutrient Removal table tells the farmer that “if you’re pulling off X number of bushels, then you’re also removing Y number of nutrients, not just nitrogen.” He said the app is the first version the company has put together. The site will be updated on a regular basis as more data becomes available. Crop yields will continue to rise as better varieties become available, fertilizer use improves and farming practices in general improve. “With that in mind, we expect to make the app more geographic specific, but we’re not quite at that point yet,” he said. “I did a lot of work on the GreenSeeker, so I know how important regionalized calibration can be.” Freeman, who was part of the Oklahoma State University team that developed the GreenSeeker, knows it needs careful calibration down to narrow bands of soil and climatic conditions. Soil scientists are now developing GreenSeeker calibrations that apply to different soil types, but Freeman doesn’t think the Nutrient Removal program will be that precise. “It will probably be regionalized to the level of the northern Great Plains, which includes the three prairie provinces.” Freeman said the data was already in table format, as displayed in Backto-Basics. “Obviously we can’t put a whole table on a small screen, but in table format, it easier to edit so the user sees only the column he needs to see for each crop. “You enter the crop. Enter your target yield and suddenly there it is on your screen. Once you’ve downloaded it, you no longer need an internet connection to run the program.” Farmers using the app can access data from their truck, tractor, fertilizer dealer or coffee shop. Freeman said 40 percent of crop yield can be attributed to what agronomists call the 4 Rs: • right source of fertilizer • right rate • right place • right time For a free copy of the app, go to or visit the App Store or the Android Market.





Dual fuel engines on the way Natural gas and diesel mix | No immediate plans to use in agricultural machinery

The Earth’s long overlooked abundance of natural gas is finally being tapped as an economical replacement for diesel. As awareness of the availability and everyday potential for the fuel grows, more companies are exploring ways to insert it into the world’s energy mainstream. One of the innovators is Cummins, which just announced that its highhorsepower, big-block V configuration engines will soon be able to run on a dual fuel ratio of 70:30, with up to 70 percent natural gas blended with diesel in some situations. The lineup includes engines from 800 to 3,500 h.p. The QSK50 series are the first Cummins engines to get the dual fuel makeover. Production of these dual fuel engines will begin next year and will be Tier 2 aimed at the oil and gas industry. Other dual fuel QSK50 engines will meet the Tier 4 Final standards as they go into production. Dual fuel engines function with a single integrated control system that makes a seamless transition between two fuels. The default fuel will always be straight diesel. The alternate fuel is liquid, low pressure natural gas. The control system automatically selects the best fuel ratio when the operator decides to go into the dual fuel mode. Cummins said dual fuel engines will run a ratio of about 50:50 in most situations. The dual fuel system will also be made available as a retrofit on existing QSK engines. Cummins said dual fuel engines will go into the gas and oil patches first because of the immediate proximity of natural gas, which can go from the well head directly into onsite diesel engines that power the operations. “In the oil and gas industry, variable-speed pressure pumping applications traditionally consume a lot of fuel due to the rugged duty cycle,” a Cummins news release said. “These customers can expect to see significant fuel savings from the Cummins dual fuel solution.” Nick Ciavarro, industrial application engineer at Cummins, said in an e-mail the company’s first focus is on large commercial engines with displacements greater than 20 litres. “As far as power and emissions, there are no published data sheets or horsepower ratings yet,” he said. “And while dual fuel is interesting and exciting, there’s just not a lot of applicability for most ag machines in the near future.”

Long-term field trials show there is no yield benefit on the Prairies to splitting nitrogen applications, as compared to side banding nitrogen only at seeding. |



No yield boost with split application: nitrogen trials 25 years of data | Ag Canada researchers conclude there is no benefit to top dressing post emergence BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

A soil fertility expert has found that split applications of nitrogen do not

increase crop yields compared to applying nitrogen only at seeding. Cindy Grant’s findings are based on 25 years of field studies, yet some prairie producers still believe that

holding back nitrogen at seeding and applying the remainder after crop emergence boosts yields. “I think it’s a misconception that they (growers) increase yield by doing split applications, that you’re spoon feeding the crop and all this,” Grant said from her office at Agriculture Canada’s Brandon Research Centre. “There are a lot of areas (in the world) where it will be beneficial. It’s just not necessarily here (on the Prairies).” Grant has studied this topic multiple times in the past two and a half decades. She conducted field trials on split nitrogen applications for one of her first research projects at the Brandon centre and is now helping to write another paper based on recent field trials of split applications. In the study, the researchers came to the same conclusion they did in the past: there are no yield benefits compared to side banding nitrogen at seeding. “We essentially had no circumstances where we had higher yields by doing that (split applications),” she said. Even though there are enough papers on this topic to fill a shelf in an Ag Canada office, growers continue to play around with split applications because they can, said John Heard, Manitoba Agriculture’s soil fertility specialist. “Certainly it’s not the norm for people to be doing this … (but) the reason farmers are liking to try this now is because many of them have their own applicators that apply liquid fertilizer,” he said. “They’re not waiting for custom operators, so maybe they can do their timing a bit better.” As well, farmers who immigrated to Western Canada in the last couple of decades might be splitting their nitrogen application because it’s a normal practice in Europe. The practice works there because of a wet growing season that lasts 150 days or longer, which means nitrogen losses are the norm. “On the Prairies, we have 95 to 100 days, that type of growing season,” said Grant said, who also noted it’s drier in Western Canada. “There’s less time for those losses to occur before the crop really needs that nitrogen.”

When the equipment changes and the technology changes, you want to re-evaluate things to see if you can take new technology and use it in a better way, fertilize smarter. CINDY GRANT AGRICULTURE CANADA

Unless soil conditions are extremely wet, like last spring in parts of Western Canada, banded nitrogen will still be there when the crop needs it, said Heard. Some European immigrant farmers have learned that top dressing isn’t practical on the Prairies, he added. “John, we’re not in Germany anymore,” some farmers have told Heard. “Things just grow too fast here.” Though the science is fairly clear, Grant and others continue to study split application of nitrogen because fertility specialists are constantly seeking the ideal way to fertilize a crop. “As researchers we keeping looking at this because, hey, maybe we can do better,” Grant said. “When the equipment changes and the technology changes, you want to re-evaluate things to see if you can take new technology and use it in a better way, fertilize smarter.” Farmers shouldn’t use a split application if the intent is to boost yields, but it is a risk management tool, Grant said. If the soil is too dry or too wet and yield potential is limited, canola growers might want to hold back nitrogen at seeding and wait to see if conditions improve before top dressing post emergence. “If people are risk averse and are in that situation, maybe there might be a benefit,” Grant said. Dan Orchard, a Canola Council of Canada agronomist from southcentral Alberta, said growers should consider top dressing only in specific circumstances. “Top dressing nitrogen, in my opinion, only has two applications: either the weather conditions have improved such that the yield potential has increased since seeding time, or you just couldn’t access product or

TOP DRESSING TIPS FOR CANOLA: • top dressing of nitrogen should be done before the six leaf stage, about a month after emergence • dry or liquid products can be used, such as urea, blends of urea and ammonium sulfate, dribble band UAN, urea treated with Agrotain (to limit volatilization) and UAN treated with Agrotain • about a half inch of rain is needed to dissolve the product, whether liquid or dry • foliar application of nitrogen while applying a herbicide isn’t effective because it’s not possible to deliver sufficient nitrogen without damaging the plants • research has shown that canola can absorb up to seven pounds of nitrogen per acre, per day • anecdotal evidence has shown that top dressing after hail does help canola recover, but those stories haven’t been validated by third party research Sources: Canola Council of Canada, Manitoba Agriculture and Alberta Canola Producers Commission

put enough on at seeding time.” Nonetheless, with canola trading higher than $12 a bushel, 2012 isn’t a good year to scrimp on nitrogen, Orchard said. After looking at a few nitrogen rate calculators, he found it makes economic sense to apply 120 to 130 pounds of nitrogen per acre, even if urea costs $900 per tonne. “Although fertilizer prices are high, so is the canola price,” he said. “So it doesn’t look like cutting back on nitrogen is going to be a good idea this year.”

Equine educators never stop learning Red Deer’s Mane Event clinic | Couple teaches relaxation, harmony and balance for rider and horse BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

RED DEER — Michael and Tiffany Richardson consider themselves horsemanship educators rather than trainers. “I am a student of the horse, and that has allowed me some wonderful opportunities,” Michael said after a horsemanship clinic at the Mane Event held in Red Deer April 27-29. “We never stop learning and that is why we don’t call ourselves trainers. We educate.” The couple teaches relaxation, harmony and balance for rider and horse. Harmony and balance are especially important for Michael, who has been a paraplegic since 1986 after a Jeep rollover. He had to develop a new perspective about the world around him, which came partly from therapeutic riding that started five weeks after his accident. “Life is precious and you have to make the most of every minute. That drove me to take what I experienced as an ambulatory person. I am not going to let my perspective define who I am.” The Richardsons, who are based at Hico, Texas, own eight horses and offer riding lessons and training at their arena. They also travel the continent conducting horsemanship clinics to help both the disabled and able-bodied rider. Tiffany works with young people while Michael works with riders who have had problems. “We get a lot of people who have pursued other programs and for whatever reason it hasn’t work for them,” he said. Added Tiffany: “We get a lot of last resorts.” She said people often tell them the horse will be shipped for slaughter if it cannot be fixed. “We will bring the horse around, but our program requires that the rider be involved, whereas a lot of people take the horse for 30 days and then bring the rider in,” she said. “Most of the issues we run into, it is rider-horse combination.” Part of the training uses a skeletal model to show students what is happening to their spines, pelvises, hips and thighs when they ride. Michael admitted it took him seven years to figure that out, and now it is the core of his teaching methods. He was hurt from the sternum area down, which means he cannot use his abdominal muscles or grip with his legs. He had to find new ways to continue riding. Early on, his therapist told him not to forget how to walk. “You can ask people how they walk and they can’t tell you. It is such an

innate thing,” he said. People don’t think about how to walk, but he has had to break down each movement. He then applies that mechanical knowledge to build harmony between the horse and rider, in which the person moves the hips and spine in a way that is similar to walking. “You want to mirror the horse and let the horse mirror you. If you don’t see a good reflection, it is up to you to change it,” he said. Sore hips, knees and back after dismounting mean there is tension from not sitting properly. Tiffany said his methods helped her. As a competitive eventing and dressage rider, she was developing physical problems. “I was sore every time I got off the horse. If I am sore, I know I was doing something wrong,” she said. This knowledge took time to develop. After his accident, Michael was a competitive para-athlete but he had an accident in which he burned the tops of his thighs. That injury slowed down his time and he missed making the Olympic team by a fraction of a second. He decided to go back to school in Illinois and study psychology in

1992. He discovered the equine management program by accident and met Tiffany in his first class. She eventually earned a degree in business management. They married 10 years ago and moved to Texas. Besides working with riders and their horses, Michael is also involved in saddle design. He has had several serious injuries since his first accident, and his sad-

dle must provide back support and comfort. His most recent saddle provides back support at 70 degrees so that he does not lose his balance. The saddle, which keeps evolving, must also work for the horse so that it can wear it and carry the rider comfortably. “We have very narrow parameters in what we can work with,” he said. Michael urges his clients to get

comfortable with riding before they buy a special saddle and horse. The Richardsons have also shared their knowledge on a 13 week television show called The Gift of the Horse on RFD TV, an agriculture network in t h e U n i t e d St at e s. It ha s b e e n renewed for another 13 weeks. “My desire is to keep doing whatever makes a difference. If that takes us pursuing other things, I am open to that,” he said.

Wood bison designation changed Can be exported to U.S. | New genetics welcomed as breeders seek to improve herds BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Wood bison now have the same designation in the United States as they do in Canada, which means more opportunities for Canadian bison producers to sell stock to their American counterparts. Terr y Kremeniuk, executive director of the Canadian Bison Association (CBA), said the new U.S. listing for Wood bison as threatened instead of endangered will allow the U.S. to import them under a special permit process called the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) permit. Animals designated as endangered cannot be exported except for special cases such as research or for zoos. “Now you’ll be able to ship Wood bison into the U.S. with a CITES permit, so it just gives the producers in the U.S. access to another pool of genetics,” Kremeniuk said.

There has always been interest in Wood bison among American bison producers because virtually all bison in the United States, except some in Alaska, are the Plains type. “Anytime you would see a WoodPlains cross at a sale, there was a lot of interest in it because there was some of that hybrid vigour. I expect there will be some people looking for that.” In a news release from the U.S.based National Bison Association (NBA), executive director Dave Carter said his group views the change as a step toward the ultimate removal of Wood bison from the endangered or threatened list. “The down-listing is a positive first step in recognizing the recovery of Wood bison,” said Carter. “We think that Fish and Wildlife needs to take the next step and fully removed (sic) Wood bison from the list.” Last year, the NBA and the CBA filed a joint comment to the U.S.

federal register urging that Wood bison be delisted. There were an estimated 11,000 Wood bison in Canada as of 2008 in domestic and free-ranging herds. A notice in the U.S. federal register, which accompanied the recent listing announcement, said there were 4,414 Wood bison in seven free-range Canadian herds as of 2008, and numbers were either stable or increasing. “Therefore we have determined that the Wood bison no longer meets the definition of endangered under the Endangered Species Act,” the notice read. However, U.S. Fish and Wildlife said it retained the designation of threatened because threats to the wild Wood bison herds in Canada include loss of habitat through agricultural expansion and the presence of tuberculosis and brucellosis. Kremeniuk said this was a reference to disease issues in bison near Wood Buffalo National Park.

The U.S. notice said diseases in the Wood bison herd constrain growth “and regulatory mechanisms are inadequate to prevent disease transmission within Canada.” There are also concerns in some circles about the crossbreeding of Plains and Wood bison to the point that no purity remains in either type. “There will always be people who want to raise pure Wood bison and the other group that will want to raise Plains bison. It’s no different in some respects than what you see in the cattle industry,” said Kremeniuk. Wood bison tend to be larger than Plains bison and have a larger cape and more pronounced, forward shoulder hump. Plains bison have longer and fuller beards and longer, shaggier hair on their forelegs. There are an estimated 400,000 Plains bison in the U.S. and Canada, more than 95 percent of them privately owned.

Federal gov’t to relax meat packing rules BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

The federal government is proposing to relax meat packing plant regulations to make compliance less expensive and to make it easier for provincially registered plants to seek federal registration. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says food safety standards would not be affected. “Pursuing the proposed amendments would provide greater flexibility to federally registered establishments in how they might meet regulatory requirements while removing some redundant and overly prescriptive non-food safety requirements currently constituting irritants to the sector,” the CFIA said. The regulatory changes are partly a response to a 2011 decision by federal and provincial agriculture ministers to look for ways to allow provincially registered packing plants to export product across provincial boundaries. The rules now allow cross-border trade, nationally or internationally, only from federally regulated plants. It first appeared that the ministers were suggesting rules that would allow inter-provincial exports from provincial plants but not out of the country. The Canadian Meat Council, which represents more than 700 federally registered plants, objected and the CFIA compromise is to make it easier to qualify as a federally registered plant but not to set up two tiers. “CFIA had the option to do plants that are just inter-provincial but their decision was to have just one federal system and we agree with that,” said Ron Davidson, the council’s government and media relations director. Still, the council has raised issues with the CFIA about the proposals, including whether foreign countries that buy Canadian meat products agree with the proposed changes. “We have asked for quite a number of clarifications, elaborations and assurances,” said Davidson. “We have not said we accept or oppose them. We seek information.” The proposed changes would allow processing of game for the hunter in federal plants and change rules about the space needed to separate the handling of edible and inedible products. Still, the CFIA said upgrading to federal status could cost up to $1 million per provincial plant .

Better enzymes, more benefits Improves livestock digestion | New formulas break down fibre faster BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Adding enzymes to pig and poultry diets is not new, but advanced forms are improving digestion and reducing the need for antibiotics. Canadian Bio-Systems of Calgary recently released two new products: Superzyme-CS and Superzyme-W. Superzyme-CS is an enzyme supplement for diets that include proteins from soybean, canola, peas and grain such as barley, wheat and corn. Superzyme-W is designed for use in feed where 70 percent or more of the diet is cereal grain or plant protein sources. Bogdan Slominski, a nutritional biochemist from the University of Manitoba, has worked with Canadian Bio-Systems to develop new products for poultry and piglet diets. Pigs lack the necessary enzymes to digest certain fibres that have a high level of viscosity. They may not get the full feed value or develop intestinal upset or scours

from certain feed. Enzymes can lessen that risk. “Enzymes have been used for quite some time. This is nothing new,” Slominski said. “We are trying to develop more diversified carbohydrate type of preparations to effectively hydrolyze (break down) certain indigestible components in feed ingredients.” Enzymes are biologically active proteins that speed up chemical and biological reactions. “Various products were used to reduce the viscosity in the gut, which was caused by certain polysaccharides in wheat or rye,” he said. Polysaccharides include starch, cellulose and glycogen. Chickens that eat wheat, barley or rye or animal protein supplements s u c h a s f i s h m e a l may re q u i re enzymes to improve digestion. These feeds can be highly viscous and may impair nutrient digestion while at the same time feeding bacteria. Carbohydrate enzymes improve digestion and nutrient absorption and prevent the growth of bacteria in

the ileum. Enzymes include products such as phytase, which selectively breaks down the bonds that hold phosphorus to phytate. This increases digestibility of the nutrient and reduces the need for added dietary inorganic phosphorus. Products such as xylanase, betaglucanase, cellulase and carbohydrase break down the indigestible fibre components within pig diets. Slominski and his colleagues have also added enzymes to improve the digestibility of dried distillers grain. Broilers could receive 10 percent DDGs in a normal feed mix, but that could increase to 15 percent with added enzymes. “If you use enzymes for wheat or corn, why not use them for DDGs,” he said. Another research program uses enzyme technology in ethanol plants. It usually takes about two days to convert starch to ethanol, but adding certain enzymes reduces the grain’s fibre content and accelerates the fermentation process.

Vaccines prevent horse fatalities ANIMAL HEALTH



ith the lengthening of days and promise of warmer weather, it’s the time of year to formulate and implement an appropriate vaccination program for horses before mosquito and horse competition seasons. Most horse owners are familiar with the three-way vaccine, which is designed to protect horses against eastern and western equine encephalomyelitis viruses and tetanus. Mosquitoes transmit the two viruses to horses and people. Tetanus is caused by a bacteria found in soil. It causes infection in open wounds and other skin defects. We all know how accident-prone horses can be. Even small nicks and scratches can permit the bacteria access to the body and the chance to multiply. This bacteria causes toxins that make muscles stiffen. It is difficult and expensive to treat, although most cases are fatal. West Nile Virus has become a standard component to most horse owners’ vaccination protocol. They should read the vaccine labels carefully to ensure this important pathogen is included. Not all horses need vaccination against strangles. Horses that have limited contact with strange horses are at lower risk. They may not leave their homes, are in isolated herds with no new horses being introduced

Centennial Column

Horses at risk for strangles include those that travel to horse competitions, live in boarding stables or live with horses that travel and have contact with other horses. | FILE PHOTO or live alone. The bacteria that causes strangles is transmitted by direct contact or contaminated objects such as bits, water buckets and snot rags. It is no longer valid to infect horses with strangles while they are young in an attempt to prevent severe disease later on and protect them for life. Vaccination and reduced exposure are the best ways to prevent this disease. Equine influenza and equine herpes virus vaccines should also be added to the vaccine plan for horses that have increased contact with other horses. Horses should be routinely vaccinated for rabies because it is a universally fatal disease and can also kill people. Contact between horses and rabid animals often goes unnoticed until clinical rabies develops.

Your veterinarian may recommend vaccination against anthrax and Potomac horse fever depending on your area and risk. Intranasal vaccinations can be tricky to administer and require a bit of finesse, but generally they promote better local immune responses, which translates into better protection. Injectable vaccinations stimulate antibodies in the blood stream, which is important for viruses such as West Nile and rabies. Intranasal vaccines stimulate antibodies on the surface of the inner nasal passages, which is where pathogens such as strangles gain access. Having the protection where it is needed can stop clinical disease in its tracks. Most vaccines need to be kept cool before administration. Always change needles between horses. Intranasal vaccines must never be injected because it can cause severe, sometimes fatal reactions. If your veterinarian is sedating your horse for other routine care such as dental floating or sheath cleaning, it is also a great opportunity to administer vaccines. Alternatively, prepare for intranasal vaccination by desensitizing the horse to having the inside of its nostrils touched by first using your fingers and then the plastic tubing from the vaccine delivery system. Incorporate food rewards. Then draw up the vaccine, place the tube in the nostril and slowly push the plunger. Follow with a treat. Injectable vaccines should be given in the neck muscle. Preparation and training will allow you to administer intranasal and injectable vaccines in subsequent years.

Beef cattle for meat production have been important in western Canada since the 1880s. Beef consumption increased in Canada and the USA after World War 2, and surplus grain became available. Before the 1950s there were a few small farm feedlots for finishing beef cattle for market. These rations did not contain more than 40 to 50 per cent grain. In 1964 the Department of Animal Science built a research feedlot with support from the Saskatchewan beef producers, the Provincial Government and the University of Saskatchewan. The purpose was to develop high grain finishing rations that would see cattle to market at 16 months of age. As part of this initiative a section was added to determine growth potential of bulls with a view to identify sires of faster growing steers. This Record of Performance Station (ROP) continued to operate until 1990. Professor Hugh Nicholson was hired to manage and supervise research in the Feedlot, the ROP Station and the accompanying Feedmill. One of the first research trials in the feedlot was carried out to settle the debate about the comparative merits of cattle, and barley from the northern and southern agricultural regions of the province. It was suggested by some that cattle fed barley from the grey wooded and degraded black soil areas in the north did not perform as well when fed barley grown in the south. No differences in rate of gain or carcass grade were found due to either source of barley or source of cattle. Rate of gain averaged only 1.15 kilograms per day. The ration consisted of 80 per cent steam rolled barley and 20 per cent slough hay plus minerals and Vitamin A. Other early trials evaluated various methods of processing barley, response to rapeseed meal and other protein supplements. One unique feature of the feedlot and Bull Test Station was the use of 20 per cent porosity fence around the Feedlot perimeter. This design was developed by Professor Eric Moysey in the Dept of Agricultural Engineering using wind tunnel measurements. This design prevented snow accumulation in the pens and reduced air velocity inside the pens to a distance of six times the height of the fence. This design has been adopted world-wide.

Improved awareness of consumer demands needed Understanding retail needs | Farmers seek ways to get more of their products onto grocers’ shelves BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Grocery retailers are committed to buying products from local farmers, but producers need to be educated about what stores need, says a Retail Council of Canada executive. David Wilkes, senior vice-president of the council’s grocery division, told the Senate agriculture committee last week that the “largest challenge” for retailers is to make sure farmers know what is expected of them. “I think (the main challenge is) the ability to educate local producers as to what the requirements of the grocery industry are, to (explain) that the customer now is demanding fresh strawberries on a year-round basis,” Wilkes told Manitoba senator Don Plett. He said farmers need to understand that consumer demands are not negotiable anymore. Farm witnesses at parliamentary committees have repeatedly complained that local supermarket chains do not make space available on their shelves for local produce.

local produce. There have been tales about rules that require local produce to be sent to a retail chain warehouse hundreds of kilometres away only to be sent back and labelled as local. Wilkes said retailers are doing their best to promote local produce and to work with local farmers, but there are limitations. “All our members have a locally grown-first procurement policy so if there is a supply available from a Canadian grower, it will be the one that gets the nod,” he said. “We have an ability for local growers to deliver directly to the stores so that you do not have to ship from your producing area to a (distribution centre) miles away and back to that same store.” However, he said farmers must understand the requirements that a retail store faces. It is not enough for a farmer to have product and want to sell it to a local store. “We have a variety of programs where members will work with local growers to explain procurement standards, most notable among them food safety, making sure people understand what the expectations of the retail community are to maintain food safety and working with those growers to ensure that


they have the right practices and husbandry techniques to ensure they are met,” said Wilkes. He said members of the retail council also work with provincial governments to implement buy local policies. “We have a number of programs where we are supporting locally raised or corn-fed beef that respond to Canadians’ desire to purchase locally and from the people they live beside,” he said. However, he complained that some government regulations make it more difficult for retailers to meet demand for local produce. There is a rule that “local” can only be applied to a product produced within 50 kilometres. “In a market as wide as Canada, this is very restrictive.” He said differing labelling standards among the provinces are also a burden on the retail sector. In Quebec, the origin of every vegetable on a vegetable platter must be noted on a label. Across the border in Ontario, labeling rules are more lax. “In some cases, the cost of complying with the labelling is more than the cost of producing the product that they are looking to sell to our members,” Wilkes said.

Grocery retailers say farmers should better understand consumer demands, such as food safety and quality, as well as the concept that many consumers expect seasonal fruits and vegetables year round. | FILE PHOTO

Grain firm grapples with volatility Leadership transition | Pulse business struggles but Legumex Walker expands into new areas BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

One of the pioneers of the pulse and special crops industry is exiting the business. Dave Walker has retired as chair of Legumex Walker Inc., one of Canada’s largest pulse processing firms. His replacement is Bruce Scherr, chair and chief executive officer of Informa Economics Inc. Walker spent nearly three decades in the special crops business building Walker Seeds into one of Canada’s leading special crops firms. “With the combination of Walker Seeds and Roy Legumex Group and our transition to a public company complete, I now look forward to the next phase in my life and the opportunity to spend more time with family and devote more attention to my farming and investment interests,” said Walker in a news release.

Legumex Walker president Joel Horn thanked Walker for his leaders h i p d u r i n g a c o n f e re n c e c a l l announcing the company’s first quarter results for 2012. It was another disappointing quarter for the newly formed public corporation. “There’s no doubt that the global market situation for special crops is still a difficult one. Volatility and political instability in some of our traditional markets persist,” Horn told investment analysts. Buyers are reluctant to purchase in that environment, but Horn thinks that attitude is about to change. “People need to eat and we are told that inventories are being depleted. Buyers will come back to the market,” he said. Sales for the first quarter of 2012 were $65.8 million, up from $62.4 million during the fourth quarter of 2011. Earnings before income, taxes,

depreciation and amortization were $2.2 million, down from EBITDA of $2.7 million in the last quarter of 2011. The company’s newly acquired bean and sunflower seed processing assets in Minnesota contributed $4.3 million in sales for the quarter. “We have barely begun to see the contribution of the acquisition of the St. Hilaire and Anderson assets,” said Horn. He said he was proud of the company’s ability to squeeze profit out of disappointing revenues. Legumex Walker realized $6.2 million of gross margin on its Canadian operations, representing 10.1 percent of sales. “Our financial results reflect our success in maintaining consistent gross margins and sales amidst the continuing industry head winds, a testament to the underlying strength of our special crops business,” said Horn.

Some of the head winds have been caused by increased competition from emerging pulse producing countries. The company is combating that new competition through a strategy of global diversification. It recently acquired a bean processing facility in Tianjin, China. “The addition of our processing capabilities in China means that we are now the competition that we previously faced,” said Horn. Construction of the company’s Pacific Coast Canola plant in Warden, Washington, is on budget and on schedule to begin operations early next year. “We just finished the first forward purchases of canola seed for the fall crop,” said Horn. The canola was bought from growers in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. Only a small fraction of the company’s anticipated needs for the first 12 months of operation have been bought.

Equipment maker expects big U.S. corn crop to hike sales WINNIPEG (Reuters) — Ag Growth International Inc., a Winnipeg-based portable grain handling equipment maker, has reported a 13 percent rise in quarterly profit on strong demand. The company, which makes grain handling equipment, storage bins and belt conveyors under the names

Batco, Twister, Westfield and Keho, said it expects a strong corn planting season in the United States to drive demand for its portable grain handling equipment. “Demand for our portable handling equipment is very strong as corn planting in the U.S. is forecast to be the

highest since 1937 and farmers in Western Canada are expected to seed approximately eight million more acres of land than in 2011,” said chief executive officer Gary Anderson. However, Ag Growth said North American sales may not match last year’s levels.

Net income for the first quarter rose to $5.3 million from $4.7 million a year ago. North American sales of commercial handling equipment also rose, the company said. Trade sales increased 10 percent to $72.3 million.







Interest in small-scale farming increasing Return to organic, local food | Small farmers can capitalize on the trend, says the co-ordinator of a farm mentorship program BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Interest in sustainable, organic and small-scale farming is growing, says Sharon Taylor, co-ordinator of the Manitoba Farm Mentorship Program. However, she admits that progress can be difficult to gauge. Her program, a product of the Organic Food Council of Manitoba, offers training and networking opportunities for new and aspiring f a r m e r s, ma n y o f w h o m d o n ’ t come from an agricultural background. Wes Huyghe met that description when he started farming two years ago. The beginnings of his two-acre vegetable farm in that province are shown in the documentary film To Make a Farm.

“There’s a renaissance for the small farmer movement,” Huyghe said. Taylor agreed. While the numbers are small, she said the Manitoba mentorship program has seen an increase in participants each year since its inception in 2009. Eight participants from another of its programs have started farms, she added. She said her program is one of several available to sustainable and organic farmers, who make up two percent of all operators in Statistics Canada’s 2011 Census of Agriculture. Tim Shultz, who has a seven-acre market garden in Osage, Sask., said he’s seen three new community supported agriculture farms this season in the Regina-Moose Jaw area. “I see a lot of opportunity for it. There’s a real turn to local foods and


natural and organic foods,” he said. “The small farmer has the most to gain on that.” The recently released census data shows a continued trend: Canadian farms are getting bigger and farmers are getting older. While total greenhouse area in the country has expanded, Statistics

Canada reports a decrease in the total area of field vegetables in every province except Nova Scotia, including an 18.8 percent decrease in Alberta to 10,716 acres. Total vegetable area in Manitoba fell 8.4 percent to 5,169 acres and in Saskatchewan it fell 5.9 percent to 765 acres. “It does clash with what we’re experiencing in terms of the interest and the numbers of people wanting to get started into farming,” said Taylor. Statistics Canada cites the strong Canadian dollar, increasing imports and the closure of processing plants as factors in these declines. Taylor said many new small-scale farmers might not be included in the census because they don’t yet gross the $10,000 required to file a farm tax return. While gross farm receipts have

grown since 2006, the census data also shows significant declines in the number of farms reporting incomes in every bracket below $100,000. Taylor said the efforts of groups such as Food Security Canada, which has developed its own sustainable local food strategy and made a presentation to the House of Commons agriculture committee in February, are a source of optimism for the sector. “That wave of interest in improving the situation in Canada and improving the supports and services that are available for new farmers ... is more an indication to me that there is a renaissance and that there is an increasing interest in farming and doing things on a smaller scale than those numbers sort of indicate to me,” said Taylor.


Fixed costs: managing expenses to maximize returns PERSPECTIVES ON MANAGEMENT



armers should think about how to better manage their fixed costs to achieve a better bottom line result. Costs, or expenses, associated with running a farm are often recorded as variable and fixed. Variable expenses can be further categorized as being production and operating expenses. The goal is to maximize profit or net income. This is achieved by increasing revenue, decreasing expenses or a combination of the two. This leads to a question: Does it really matter how the expenses are recorded? After all, the bottom line results are what count. Expenses, regardless of how they are recorded, are an investment in the business. As with any investment, it is expected that there will be a return. The task is to determine how the investment (in this case, the expenses) can be managed so as to maximize the return or profit. The adage that you can’t manage what you can’t measure is why it matters how expenses are recorded. Fixed costs Production expenses such as fertilizer, chemical, seed and crop insurance and operating expenses, such as fuel, repairs, custom work and wages, vary with production. Fixed costs are referred to as business expenses that do not directly fluctuate with increases or decreases in production. They are often re-

ferred to as overhead. Typical examples include interest, amortization (or depreciation), utilities, professional fees, management salaries, rent and property taxes. They are fixed in the sense that you have to make interest payments or pay rent and property taxes even if you have no production. Not that long ago, I travelled to England and visited farm management consultants. Crop production in certain areas there is intensive. One consultant said that some farmers think of their fixed costs as being more variable than their variable costs. That might seem confusing, but the rationale was that because of the need to drive yield, farmers had limited ability to adjust fertilizers and chemicals. They believed they had more control in managing their fixed costs and therefore improve their net incomes. Production in Canada has different considerations than England, albeit with the same need to optimize yield. The thinking around managing fixed costs does have applications here though. Amortization, or depreciation, is a real cost. It is a non-cash cost. It is supposed to represent the cost of the annual wear and tear on buildings and equipment. There are two ways to manage this cost. Farmers and accountants often use tax (capital cost allowance) rates, which can be 10 to 30 percent, depending on the asset. An option is to use a lower amortization rate for management purposes, which more closely represents the annual cost of ownership and thus results in a more realistic net income. The other option is to either not own or share in the ownership of operating assets. This obviously reduces the fixed amortization cost. Interest expenses can be managed by either not borrowing as much money, or selecting variable or fixed rates. Management salaries can also be adjusted. If the objective is to

increase net income, taking less from the business in management salaries is an option, although there can be tax strategy implications. These ideas look at how fixed costs could be reduced as tactics to increase net income. Another option is to keep fixed costs at their current values and increase the productive asset base.

This spreads the existing fixed costs over more productive units, lowering t h e a m o u nt p e r u n i t a n d t hu s increasing net income. The challenge here is to increase the productive base without increasing, or at the least only minimally increasing fixed costs. The most important message here is to encourage farmers to think

about how their fixed costs can be better managed so as to achieve a better bottom line result. In all likelihood, some combination of the above may be required. Terry Betker is a farm management consultant based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He can be reached at 204.782.8200 or terry.
