Why eating disorders are so tough to battle





Cross border grain trade may see hurdles U.S. wheat varieties not registered in Canada would be graded as feed BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

VALLEY CITY, N.D. — Farmers in northern North Dakota expect to see more Canadian licence plates at local elevators come Aug. 1. But they aren’t sure if Canadian farmers will be seeing many American licence plates in the post-CWB monopoly era. “What if it’s cheaper to railroad it through Canada?” farmer Greg Svenningsen said on his eastern North Dakota farm. “One thing farmers worry about is that all this grain might move south and flood our markets, but can we move it north? Are there going to be constraints on that?” The answer is probably yes, but it’s something many in the prairie grain industry, including farm groups, are trying to avoid.

A field day was held June 12 at Colin and Gavin Greenwald’s farm south of Leader, Sask., to show various openers produced by VW Manufacturing. About 20 producers showed up to eat burgers and check out the equipment. We’ll have more coverage in next week’s Production section. | WILLIAM





Rain stokes fears, but 2011 long way off

JUNE 21, 2012 Return undeliverable Canadian addresses to: Box 2500, Saskatoon, SK. S7K 2C4

Heavy rain, disease | While 2012 is better for many, some areas are seeing extreme weather

The flood of 2011 was just hitting its stride a year ago this week. Heavy mid-June rainfall on top of already saturated soil was hammering Saskatchewan and Manitoba particularly hard.

Reservoirs couldn’t contain the flows on the Souris River and thousands of homes downstream of Estevan, Sask., would be damaged or destroyed, including many in Minot, North Dakota, before the water subsided. The Qu’Appelle River and lakes system also flooded extensively.

What hadn’t been seeded wasn’t going to be and weed control became a chief concern for those who could get on the land. The situation this year is better for most. The number of unseeded acres will be lower than the eight million not planted in Saskatchewan last year,

which came after eight to 10 million acres weren’t seeded the previous year. Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corp. paid out a record $551 million for unseeded acreage claims in those two years. SEE RAIN SPARKS FEAR, PAGE 2







Rain stokes fears In Manitoba, about 25 percent of the crop, or three million acres, was unseeded in 2011. A winter of minimal snow cover helped, but it is still wet and weedy in many places. Grant McLean, crop management specialist with Saskatchewan Agriculture, said there are spots where excessive rainfall and flooding are causing problems, including the Battlefords-Kindersley area and east of the Quill Lakes. The Saskatoon area has had 150 and 230 millimetres of rain in the last two weeks. A farmer near Hepburn reported 300 mm so far and large areas of fields dying from excess moisture. Thunderstorm season is now increasing the chance of crop damage, McLean noted. As many as 50 funnel clouds swirled through westcentral Saskatchewan June 15 along with heavy rain, strong wind and hail. Several tornadoes caused damage to farmyards and trees. However, uniformly wet conditions are causing ongoing problems in eastcentral Saskatchewan, from Weyburn north to the forest fringe. Surplus moisture has carried over from the last few years, and farmers are reporting water again lying in fields. McLean said June 18 that a Canora farmer reported 70 mm of rain over the weekend. Manitoba is keeping an eye on the Assiniboine River as it enters the Shellmouth Reservoir from the Canora-Kamsack region. Kamsack has received nearly 300 mm of rain since April 1. The Manitoba government issued a flood watch June 18 from St. Lazare to Brandon and a high water advisory for the Swan River and Duck Mountain areas because of heavy rain in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. A flood warning remains in effect for the river valley immediately downstream of the reservoir. The Saskatchewan Watershed Authority said in its June provincial forecast that total precipitation since April 1 has “substantially exceeded the recorded historical average” in the grain belt. “The east-central area, centred around Melville and Yorkton, are at record values, as well as the southwestern areas around Gravelbourg, Moose Jaw, Rosetown and Swift Current,” the report said. McLean said while the extreme southeast is far better off than last year, at least in terms of getting crops in the ground, fields in the Tantallon and Whitewood areas are still too wet. There are also fields in the Regi-

na-Milestone area that have been under water for years. “For those individuals, the question is now how do you generate revenue for your business?” McLean said. Farmers unable to seed are missing out on strong commodity prices, particularly for canola. McLean said he was reminded of farmers in the 1970s who missed $8 durum for the same reason. Crops that are up but now sitting in water w ill be affected. Canola doesn’t like wet feet, McLean said, which will handicap its ability to recover once temperatures get warmer and the soil begins to dry. He said the water can affect nitrogen and sulfur levels in soil, and some farmers might consider fertilizer applications, but only if the timing works. “The window of opportunity for that starts disappearing pretty rapidly, particularly for canola,” McLean warned. The wet conditions are leading to worries about disease, especially in chickpeas. “Wetter conditions increase the need for the frequency of fungicide use and scouting,” he said. Insects are already devouring crops. Up to 50 percent damage from cutworms is being seen in some fields in the Naicam and Melfort region of northeastern Saskatchewan. Farmers are faced with a tough choice, given the wet conditions and the date. “What are you going to do, reseed?” McLean said. “And if you do reseed, are you going to end up with multiple stages of crop?” Still, he said the closing window for weed control is likely the biggest factor in farmers’ minds right now. G er r id Gust, who far ms near Davidson, Sask., said he is behind in spraying but won’t turn down the rain. In the typically dry southwest, more than 125 mm fell in the Rural Municipality of Val Marie last week, pushing the year-to-date total to 345 mm. It had received the highest amount of precipitation in the province between April 1 and June 11. It’s a different story in parts of Alberta. Wind is drying out soil and causing concern near Lethbridge, while a farmer near Vegreville reported only 50 mm of rain since May 1. Further north at La Crete, only eight mm have fallen and five of those came June 17, said another. Moisture conditions are generally good near Calgary, but finishing spraying is a concern there, too.

Appeals court sides with Ottawa on CWB issue Lower court wrong | Ritz did not break law by introducing CWB ending bill without farmer vote BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

The Federal Court of Appeal has decisively supported the right of the federal government to end the CWB monopoly without a farmer vote. In a June 18 judgment, the court shredded the 2011 ruling of Winnipeg Federal Court justice Douglas Campbell that agriculture minister Gerry Ritz violated “the rule of law” when he introduced legislation without holding a farmer plebiscite. Reflecting a unanimous decision by the three judges who heard the federal appeal in May, justice Robert Mainville said each of Campbell’s arguments against the government’s ability to change the law without farmer approval was wrong. The appeal court also ordered that those who challenged the government — Friends of the Canadian Wheat Board and former CWB directors dismissed by the government under the new legislation, as well as the Council of Canadians and others — pay government costs. Essentially, the appeal court ruling said that 1998 amendments to the CWB Act brought in by former Liberal wheat board minister Ralph Goodale requiring a producer vote to add or subtract grains from the board could not bind a government trying to end the monopoly to act only after a group of citizens said it was OK. “The effect of such a provision is to relinquish Parliament’s powers in the hands of a small group not forming part of Parliament,” justice Mainville wrote. “I seriously doubt such a provision could be used to impede the introduction of legislation in Parliament.” Although lawyers for Friends of the CWB argued during the appeal in May the intent of the appeal was not to challenge the law but rather the performance of Ritz as minister, the

The Marketing Freedom for Grain Farmers Act is in force and farmers are moving forward …. GERRY RITZ FEDERAL AGRICULTURE MINISTER

appeal court said the Campbell lower court judgment carried significant weight and had to be addressed. It is at the heart of a claim that the legislation should not be allowed to proceed, as well as a class action suit filed by pro-CWB farmers that is asking for billions of dollars in compensation for farmers. Mainville said a reading of the record shows no evidence to support the idea that farmers rather than government would decide the fate of the CWB. “I have found nothing in the record which leads to the conclusion that the repeal of the single desk as a whole or of the CWB Act in its entirety were somehow made conditional to obtaining the prior consent of the CWB or of grain producers.” He dismissed judge Campbell’s acceptance of a Council of Canadians argument that the CWB had to be “democratic” to meet international trade obligations. If they choose, opponents must now appeal to the Supreme Court. In a statement issued by his office late June 18, agriculture minister Ritz said he was pleased with a judgment that he had expected. “The Marketing Freedom for Grain Farmers Act is in force and farmers are moving forward and contracting their wheat and barley with buyers of their choice for delivery beginning Aug. 1, 2012,” he said. “Marketing freedom will build a stronger economy by attracting investment, encouraging innovation and creating value-added jobs.”


Cross border grain shipping may see hurdles post wheat board “If we want to be able to sell our grain in there … with minimal restrictions, then with trade being a twoway street it’s got to work both ways,” said Grain Growers of Canada executive director Richard Phillips. Farm groups, commodity groups, grain companies and processors have formed an informal committee that is trying to compile information that will help growers on both sides of the border sell into the other country after Aug. 1. They are also trying to alleviate some of the regulatory problems that could prevent farmers from trading across the border.

Most varieties of U.S. wheat grown in North Dakota and Montana aren’t registered in Canada, so if they are sold to a Canadian elevator, the grading system requires that it be regarded as feed wheat, regardless of its quality or characteristics, Phillips said. That would slam the door shut to any significant sales from U.S. farmers to Canadian elevators of any quality wheat. On the other hand, some U.S. buyers aren’t interested in Canadian grain, even if they are legally allowed to buy it. Keystone Agricultural Producers president Doug Chorney said a major North Dakota buyer said he

wouldn’t take any Canadian crops, board or non-board. “He said, ‘we only buy grain grown in America. We’re not interested in buying any of your grain at any price,’ ” said Chorney. “Those made-in-the-U.S.A. policies of some companies might be something that Canadian farmers aren’t ready for.” Few expect there to be much truck trade between Canada and the United States by individual farmers. “Prices will arbitrage, so there won’t be an incentive to do it,” said Chuck Penner of LeftField Commodity Research.

Chorney said farmers will be unlikely to haul much by themselves, but independent grain elevators and grain merchants might try to supply American buyers with bigger sales. “I think a lot of (North Dakota buyers who have said they are interested in Canadian grain) are looking to buy in bulk rather than from farmers randomly driving down to North Dakota elevators,” said Chorney. Some farmers in Canada have long coveted the right to haul to U.S. elevators with no restrictions in hopes of higher prices. Some U.S. farmers are hoping that Western Canada’s two


competing railways might sometimes create attractive basis levels from which they could profit. “Is that going to be there for us?” said Svenningsen. Chorney said the lack of certainty is common across the Prairies and Great Plains.




If you build it, they may come Easy plans | Use nesting poles for ferruginous hawks to help control gophers while assisting an endangered species BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU


erruginous hawks may fly lazy circles in the blue sky of a prairie day, but they are industrious when it comes to eating Richardson’s ground squirrels. That diet, of up to 500 gophers per nesting pair per season, makes them attractive tenants for farmers and ranchers within the hawks’ native range in southeastern Alberta, southern Saskatchewan and southwestern Manitoba. However, ferruginous hawks are considered endangered in Alberta and threatened on the Canadian species-at-risk list, so Alberta’s sustainable resource development department (SRD) and other agencies are trying to increase nest sites and encourage hawk population growth. Brandy Downey, senior speciesat-risk biologist with Alberta SRD, said initial efforts this year attracted interest from 25 producers. So far, those have resulted in six new nesting poles, four of which have nests with young. “I’m very excited about the fact that we’ve had so many nests show up on these poles because it means our protocol is doing it right this time. We’re putting them in the right spots,” said Downey. Agencies such as SRD, Multisar, the Alberta Conservation Association and Operation Grassland

Several agencies will work with landowners to assess potential hawk nesting sites. They will then conscript utility companies to supply old poles, installation equipment and labour. Producers would have natural ground squirrel control for their pastures if ferruginous hawks move in to nest. | ADAM MOLTZAHN PHOTOS Community will work with landowners to assess potential sites. Then they will conscript utility companies to supply old poles, installation equipment and labour. The nesting poles could thus be virtually free to landowners who provide a suitable site. “You would have nice natural ground squirrel control and save some money on poisons or baits or bullets.” Downey said utility companies often get involved for reasons of

corporate citizenship but also because ferruginous hawks like to nest on power poles and electrical towers, creating a potential hazard for themselves and for the utility. Ferruginous hawks are North America’s largest hawk species and are often mistaken for eagles because of their size and 1.5 metre wing span. The birds, which are rust-coloured on the back, shoulders and legs, get their name from ferrous, meaning iron, which is reddish brown. Downey said population esti-

mates from a 2010 survey indicate there are 640 breeding pairs in Alberta, up from 618 estimated in 2005. A large number of voles in the province last year provided plentiful food and contributed to an increase. However, the numbers, though stable, are still much lower than pre-1992 estimates of 1,700 pairs. Habitat loss, oil and gas activity and other human disturbance are thought to be the cause, though there may also be issues with the

migratory route or wintering grounds in Mexico, Downey said. Ferruginous hawks favour native grassland in flat and open terrain, along with food such as gophers, voles, rabbits and smaller birds. Those interested in erecting a nesting pole on their property should contact Downey at brandy. or 403-3815526. Information is also available from Multisar at or Operation Grassland Community at



Choose location wisely: • Choose a site on prairie land with healthy populations of gophers. • Nest poles should be located at least 800 metres from cliffs, trees and other artificial platforms to avoid territorial disputes. • Avoid placing nest poles near roads, power lines, oil/gas developments or farmyards. • Ensure nest pole is not placed in areas near endangered species such as sage grouse or burrowing owls. • Avoid installing nest poles during the breeding period from March 15 to July 31.






Effects of Alberta oil spill still unknown Keep records of damages | Farmer’s advocate office asking Plains Midstream Canada to pay for vet checks for baseline charts BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Alberta’s farmer’s advocate is contacting farmers and ranchers affected by a recent pipeline spill in the province’s west-central region. The 12 inch pipeline was breached June 7 and 3,000 barrels of light sweet crude oil spilled near Sundre. Oil was quickly moved by the fast flowing Red Deer River and ended up in Glennifer Reservoir, 30 kilometres from the original spill. The reservoir is 18 sq. km and located west of Innisfail. The pipeline is owned by Plains Midstream Canada, and more than 260 company workers are cleaning up the river and its banks and collecting daily water and air quality samples. “Nobody knows the actual damages or losses or the costs, but if we get people following a comprehensive process of record keeping, it will make it easier to advance their claims,” said farmer’s advocate Peter Dobbie. “What is really frustrating is if you incur costs or have a loss, but have a difficult time proving it. That is often the challenge.” The advocate’s office wants farmers to keep records on potential damage, including written reports, pictures and video of effects on their property and livestock. Loss of grazing, costs to move animals and haul water and animal health should be recorded. The office can help people set up records and work on potential damage claims. The advocate’s office also wants the company to pay for veterinar y checks on herds to obtain baseline information on health and determine if there are later effects on livestock. The office is also talking with the company about damages. “We are recommending a nonadversarial process be set up to make it relatively clear and straight forward for farmers and ranch operators to be able to advance claims,” Dobbie said.

LEFT: Booms have been stretched across Glennifer Lake near Innisfail, Alta., to prevent oil from spreading across the entire 18 sq. kilometre reservoir. About 3,000 barrels of sweet crude oil spilled into the Red Deer River and lake when a pipeline was breached at the beginning of June near Sundre, Alta., about 30 km away. Company officials estimate clean up of the river, land and lake could take weeks. ABOVE: Cattle graze on the banks of the Medicine River, a tributary of the Red Deer River. Farmers and ranchers in the area are advised to maintain records on potential damage to their land, water and livestock so claims can be made against Plains Midstream Canada, the pipeline owner. | BARBARA DUCKWORTH PHOTOS Landowners can call the farmer’s advocate office at 310- 3276 for further information. Plains Midstream Canada has established a community response line at 866-670-8073. The company is responsible for cleanup, and an investigation will be launched to see what went wrong on the line built in 1966, said Cara Tobin of the Energy Resources Conservation Board. The company also owned a pipeline that was breeched last year in the Peace River district, where investigations continue. Past failures and non-compliance with regulations are considered

when these events occur, she said. “The ERCB does require the companies to review the integrity of the pipelines on a regular basis and report that to the ERCB,” she said. The industry watchdog does not issue fines, but it can shut down a facility or stop the company from operating in the province. Plains Midstream owns 5,000 km of pipelines in Western Canada, and onefifth of the crude oil passes through its system each day, said Stephen Bart, vice-president of crude oil operations. This section of pipeline extended 30 km from the contamination point to the reservoir and was bought from

Pacific Energy Partners. There are no cost estimates at this time and the company would not reveal exactly where the leak occurred. “We believe it was underneath the river, but until we’ve had a chance to remove any residual oil from that segment of pipe and remove the pipe, we won’t know for certain,” he told reporters. The Red Deer River flows for 750 km from Banff National Park until it empties into the South Saskatchewan River. Some environmental groups claim this leak was an accident waiting to happen. “The company appears to be doing

everything it can to reduce the damage and we hope it can be cleaned up with the least amount of damage,” said Gerard Aldridge, executive director or the Red Deer River Watershed Alliance. It is too early to say what the longerterm impact might be on drinking water and aquatic ecosystems, he added. “An incident like this is a real prime example of what can occur and potentially cause harm to it,” he said. “It will certainly be a matter of discussion during our land use components for our integrated watershed management plan.”


Supply management ‘a problem,’ says former Liberal MP A political hot potato | Trade critic Martha Hall Findlay says supply management should be ended but no one will take a public stand BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Martha Hall Findlay, former Liberal MP, trade critic and leadership candidate, says it is time federal politicians escaped the political grip of the dairy farmer lobby and ended supply management. This week, she publishes a paper on the issue written for the University of Calgary School of Public Policy that is certain to stir up a ferocious debate in the farm sector and in political circles, though often it likely will be in the background. She says many politicians agree with her privately but refuse to take a public stand. In an interview, she said supply management is bad economic policy

that hurts Canadian consumers and the poor and undermines Canada’s trade negotiation credibility. Hall Findlay said she favours a version of the Australian move a decade ago that ended dairy supply management but provided transition payments for farmers through a consumer levy. “This is a chance for me to do something on an issue that has frustrated me for years,” she said, explaining why a former Toronto MP decided to tackle the supply management issue. “It’s been frustrating because everybody behind the scenes has said it needs to go. Supply management is a problem but we can’t afford the political cost of taking it on.” Hall Findlay said her analysis being

published June 21 will use the number of dairy farmers compared to the voting public to argue that dairy farmer political power is not as great as politicians believe. She noted that various trade negotiators and politicians who support supply management protectionism in their public roles reveal their discomfort with the position when they retire. “A lot of them have done that and it is frustrating, one of the reasons I ended up doing this,” she said. “I get frustrated by people saying one thing and doing another or doing one thing and saying another. You wouldn’t believe the number of people whether elected politicians or bureaucrats who say behind the scenes that they know this is bad policy so I ask, where is the courage

to finally step up and say ‘let’s do something about it?’ ” Supply management is a system of domestic supply controls, import quotas and high tariffs designed to improve incomes for dairy, egg and poultry farmers. Hall Findlay, a lawyer and businessperson defeated in the 2011 election in her Toronto-area riding, wrote the paper under the direction of Jack Mintz, director of the University of Calgary School of Public Policy where she is an executive fellow. He is considered the senior member of the “Calgary School” of conservative economic and tax policy that has influenced such University of Calgary graduates as prime minister Stephen Harper. Hall Findlay said she hopes the paper

stirs debate about a policy that has largely been off-limits for politicians. “I hope I get a discussion going,” she said with a laugh. “I am the author so I will wear this.” In the Liberal party, it could be an uncomfortable fit. In 2006, Hall Findlay ran unsuccessfully for the Liberal party leadership. With another leadership race this summer to replace retiring interim leader Bob Ray, she regularly is included on lists of potential 2013 candidates. Since support for supply management has been a staple for the Liberal party that oversaw its creation four decades ago, her proposals will be controversial. Hall Findlay said her arguments are not anti-dairy but based on economics.

India exporting wheat as stocks grow unwieldy BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Three-quarters of Saskatchewan’s canola crop was in good to excellent condition as of June 11. |



Bigger canola crop predicted Ag Canada’s forecast questioned | Northstar Agri Industries suggests 17 million acres possible BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The president of a newly minted canola processing plant says Agriculture Canada’s 2012-13 yield estimate is too low. “If we can get through the rest of the growing season with maybe one or two more rains, I think we’ve got a high yield potential in the ground right now,” said Neil Juhnke, president of Northstar Agri Industries in Hallock, Minnesota. Agriculture Canada used an average yield of 33.4 bushels per acre in its June 14 supply and disposition report, which is lower than last year. That doesn’t seem right to Juhnke, considering the crop went in the ground early this year and is off to a terrific start in most growing regions. Saskatchewan Agriculture reports that three-quarters of the province’s canola crop was in good to

excellent condition as of June 11 compared to one-third in those categories a year ago. “From the sounds of things, the 2012 crop is off to an excellent start,” said Juhnke. “The crop could be in the 37 or 38

bu. per acre area this year.” That would result in an extra two million tonnes of Canadian production over the 15.1 million tonnes that Agriculture Canada is forecasting, providing breathing room in what would otherwise be another year of extremely tight supply. Northstar’s new plant will compete for some of that production. The facility began processing old crop canola May 18 and reached its 1,000 tonne per day capacity by June 6. The plant is capable of processing 345,000 tonnes of the oilseed annually. It will require 100,000 to 150,000 tonnes of canola from Canada in each of the first few years of operation until more farmers start growing the crop in Minnesota. “Southern Manitoba, between us and Bunge’s plant in Altona, is our target market,” said Juhnke. However, Northstar will also venture west into the Winkler and Carmen areas and as far north as Win-

nipeg. The company has two agents contracting with Canadian farmers and is also buying canola from grain companies north of the border. “We welcome Canadian farmers to come down and take a look and direct deliver,” he said. It takes a truck seven minutes to go from inbound probe to outbound scale with the company’s high capacity receiving system. Most of the plant’s canola will come from North Dakota. Official acreage estimates have yet to be released, but Juhnke thinks 1.3 to 1.4 million acres of canola have been planted in that state. The crop is in excellent condition. Land O’Lakes Purina Feed LLC is marketing 100 percent of the oil and meal produced at the plant. It is a subsidiary of Land O’Lakes Inc., a Minnesota dairy co-operative that is the largest consumer of protein meal in North America.

A new competitor has suddenly emerged in wheat markets. India began exporting the crop in September after the government lifted a three-year export ban. The U.S. Department of Agriculture expects India to ship 2.5 million tonnes of wheat in 2012-13 as it tries to reduce record stocks that are poorly protected from the elements and are in danger of rotting. However, a CWB analyst doubts the exports will hurt global wheat prices. A recent U.S. agricultural attaché report forecasts 1.8 million tonnes of Indian exports but said shipments could be significantly higher if the Indian government starts subsidizing exports or the rupee further depreciates against the U.S. dollar. Phytosanitary discussions that India is having with Iran to resolve an issue with karnal bunt could also boost exports. If the talks go well, India could ship two to four million tonnes of its excess wheat stocks to Iran to help pay its oil bill. The attaché report estimates that the government’s food grain stocks reached a record 81.5 million tonnes as of June 1, including a record 49 million tonnes of wheat. The government is expected to buy 36 million tonnes of the crop during the April to July procurement season, which would be 27 percent more than last year’s purchases. G overnment stockpiles grew because of a record 91 million tonne wheat harvest earlier this year and a government minimum support price that is well above the weak domestic market price for the crop. However, the storage capacity to house that grain is woefully inadequate. According to the attaché report, the total storage space available to government agencies is 65 to 66 million tonnes, which leaves 15 to 16 million tonnes of surplus wheat to be kept in temporary storage in open yards under plastic tarps. Rice is stored in government warehouses. A Reuters story suggested 19 million tonnes of wheat are exposed to the elements and subject to damage from insects, pests, theft and spoilage. It will be highly vulnerable to the monsoon rains that arrive this month. A government commission formed to develop a strategy for handling the surplus has recommended offloading 10 million tonnes through the Public Distribution System, three million tonnes on the open market to millers and traders and two million tonnes through exports.

about this question think there won’t be large divergences, which is why most of them think Minneapolis is the heavy favourite to win this contest. After all, currency exposure can be easily hedged, and the Canadian HRSW market will likely move quickly to arbitrage prices with the U.S. market. They doubt most will want to use the CBOT contract because there are times when high-protein spring wheat prices spread widely from winter wheat prices, and that kind of basis risk can be significant, by dollars per bushel in extreme cases. However, the dawning of the free market could contain surprises for prairie wheat growers. No one really knows how it’s going to unfold, and cash prices here, at least in the short term, might be more volatile than many expect as grain companies stumble into the new reality. That might give the Winnipeg contract a chance of life. If significant cash market spreads occur between the two wheat markets, a Canadianfocused contract might prove its worth. For now, almost no broker or adviser is willing to use the Winnipeg contract because it has almost no liquidity. Liquidity is often the biggest concern of hedgers, so a contract that now has a real risk of not being able to get out of a position without a major cost is a serious problem. That can be solved only if somebody is willing to use the contract, and that pretty much means grain companies and food companies that use wheat. If they pile into the contract, then there’s room for speculators to play, and enough liquidity for farmers to feel comfortable taking positions. But for now, Minneapolis is the overwhelming favourite to take prairie farmers’ hedging business. Chicago, and maybe even Kansas City, will likely play minor roles for specific purposes, and Winnipeg will fade away unless it can build liquidity, fast.

hat’s the most dangerous form of risk for farmers to take on when using futures to hedge Western Canadian wheat: inter-regional basis risk, liquidity risk or currency exchange risk? The answer will decide who wins the battle for the hedging business of the western Canadian wheat crop. We’re quickly moving toward the moment of truth when the open market arrives a few weeks from now. Three contracts are in the contest, one each from the Minneapolis Grain Exchange, the Chicago Board of Trade and Winnipeg’s ICE Futures. Here are the main selling points of the three contracts: • Minneapolis: it is specific to hard red spring wheat, is adequately traded and the crop it has always traded is geographically connected to the Canadian crop and reflects commercial and most growing conditions. • Chicago: an ocean of trading washes around the Chicago wheat contract every day, reflecting the main efforts of wheat hedgers and speculators around the world. It is never a problem to get into and out of wheat positions in Chicago, and its wheat prices reflect the main moves in world wheat prices. • Winnipeg: the contract is specifically tailored for prairie commercial conditions and is most reflective of the type of wheat grown on the Canadian Prairies. As well, it is priced in loonies. However, each contract also has its problems:

• Winnipeg has almost zero trading in the new contract. • Chicago’s contract is tied to soft red winter wheat, which is different than high protein hard red spring wheat and is priced in U.S. dollars. • Minneapolis is priced in U.S. dollars. Most of the smart money is on Minneapolis w inning this contest because its contract has a lot of strengths and no fatal weaknesses. The biggest knocks against Minneapolis involve currency and basis risk. The contract is traded in U.S. dollars, and because the loonie-greenback relationship has been volatile for the past decade, currency exchange risk is a legitimate if marginal risk, especially on positions placed many months into the future. The basis risk I’m talking about is the relationship of U.S. hard red spring wheat cash prices to Canadian prairie HRSW cash prices. Futures need to converge tightly to real commercial prices to give farmers a low-risk hedge,



into the wheat market. “I don’t really see it as being a big threat to the world price structure, just because I think there’s going to be a market for that lower quality wheat.” The USDA expects 2012-13 shipments will be down 8.5 million tonnes in the former Soviet Union, 2.8 million tonnes in the European Union and 3.9 million tonnes in Argentina compared to the previous year. The Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences is forecasting 24.1 million tonnes of wheat production in that country, down from 29.5 million tonnes last year. So a rare offering of Indian exports might not be a bad thing. “There does need to be a bit of wheat come out of the woodwork,” said Townsend. India’s wheat quality is lower than what is grown in Canada and isn’t subject to the same level of segregation and quality assurance. It is sold to places like Bangladesh, Nepal, the Middle East and East Africa. “They’re not exactly the premium wheat buyers. It’s going to be the bottom feeders who want some cheap wheat,” said Townsend.

China invests in Ukraine agriculture

A form of risk that arises from the change in price of one currency against another. Whenever investors or companies have assets or business operations across national borders, they face currency risk if their positions are not hedged.

Canada’s wheat crop is months from harvest, but three futures exchanges with wheat contracts are vying for prairie farmers’ hedging business. | FILE PHOTO and there are structural differences between the prairie and northern U.S. industry. Canadian grain moves through different elevators, runs through different railway systems and is exported through different ports and terminals. The U.S. HRSW crop is also much

more dependent on the domestic North American market than the Canadian crop. So will that make free market prairie wheat cash prices diverge significantly from U.S. prices? We don’t know yet. Most of the analysts I’ve spoken with

Financing inputs | Investments to help Black Sea agriculture reach potential BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

China is helping Ukraine’s agriculture sector achieve its vast potential by investing heavily in the country. According to a news brief that ran in the China Daily newspaper, China has agreed to finance $3 billion of agricultural projects in the country. The story did not specify a timeline for the investment. To put that number in perspective, the Canadian government is projected to spend $2.6 billion on agriculture programs in Canada in 2012-13. China’s investment in Ukraine will include providing Chinese-made pesticide, seeds and equipment as well as building pesticide and fertilizer plants in Ukraine in exchange for securing access to the country’s agricultural production. “The news of that initiative does not surprise me,” said Dennis Stephens, consultant with the Canada Grains

Council. It is part of China’s longstanding food security policy, which was initially focused on improving the productivity of its own farms. “Increasingly of late, China has extended that concept to include facilitating the development of guaranteed supplies offshore,” Stephens said. China has been active in Africa and South America and now appears to be venturing into the Black Sea region. A story in the Kyiv Post says China is also investing in neighbouring Belarus and Russia. Allen Hingston, an international agriculture consultant who has lived in Ukraine for the last five years after spending 20 years working for Saskatchewan Agriculture, said the Chinese investment could help Ukrainian grain farms reach their enormous potential. “It will certainly have an impact, absolutely an impact,” he said.

The article in the Kyiv Post details how Ukrainian grain farming has struggled in the post-Soviet era. Crop yields have dipped below the Soviet period while yields in Russia and Kazakhstan are higher. That is a disappointment for a country blessed with 25 percent of the world’s best black soil. “It has got better soil than anywhere else in the universe,” said Hingston. “The word potential is overused, but I mean that’s what you see when you look around. There’s still land here that isn’t even farmed since the collapse of the Soviet system.” The Kyiv Post story says market experts believe Ukraine could double or even triple its 40 to 60 million tonnes of annual grain production if it eliminated burdensome government regulation and adopted modern crop input technology. That would have a big impact on world wheat, corn and soybean markets. The article quotes World Bank

experts who say red tape surrounding the registration of new seeds and crop protection products means the market is flooded with low quality knock-off inputs. A lack of access to capital is also hindering Ukrainian farmers, who aren’t allowed to use farmland or future crops as collateral with banks. As a result, only eight percent of growers are investing in new technology and only 14 percent in onfarm storage. Hingston believes that is the root cause of the country’s agricultural shortcomings. “They have no security so they can’t go to the bank to borrow,” he said. Land can be owned but not sold. It can only be rented. There are plenty of small plots of land in the hands of farmers who used to be part of collective farms. So today’s large operations could have thousands of landlords and entire divisions devoted to dealing with renters.





Weather at forefront of markets as dry heat saps corn yield MARKET WATCH


Canadian markets await updated seeding numbers


eeding is mostly complete now and traders want to know if, despite the rain, farmers were able to seed as much as they hoped this spring. We’ll know better June 27 when Statistics Canada releases the results of its seeding survey. The survey is conducted through late May and early June. The March seeding report showed farmers intended to increase seeded acres and slash summerfallow area because of drier soil and strong crop markets. However, since then there has been a lot of rain and so the area that could not be seeded because of excess moisture might be more than initially expected, although likely well down from the last two years. What is lost through reduced acreage, though, could be made up in higher yields. The yield prospect is good if we get warm sunny weather in July, allowing crops to make use of the good soil moisture. In the United States, the situation might be the reverse. Dry, hot weather in the Midwest is weakening corn ratings. The weekly assessment of corn now puts the portion considered goodto-excellent at 63 percent, down from 66 percent the previous week and 70 percent last year at the same time. This throws into doubt the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s projec-

American farmers in the Midwest hope their fields don’t turn out like this drought-ravaged 2007 crop in Maryland. Dry, hot weather is sapping the yield potential of Midwest corn this year. | BEN FERTIG, IAN, UMCES PHOTO tion of a record 166 bushel per acre average corn yield. A Reuters poll last week said the average of private analysts’ yield projections was 161.5 bu. per acre. Based on that yield and the USDA’s projected corn harvested area of 89.1 million acres, American farmers would produce 14.39 billion bu., down from the department’s projection of 14.79 billion but still a record large crop and one that would move ending stocks back to a more comfortable level. However, private analysts Informa Economics said last week that it

thinks American farmers seeded more corn than the current USDA number. Informa’s number is 860,000 acres more than the USDA’s. So, using a harvested acreage of 90 million acres and a yield of 161.5 per bu. gives us a crop of 14.535 billion bu., providing even more comfort. Informa’s number came out June 15 and helped cause new crop corn prices to fall about two percent. However, the corn market regained all that ground and more June 18 on growing worries about continuing hot weather and relief when the

Greeks voted for pro-bailout parties in the weekend election. As the dry heat continues in the Midwest, even guesses of 161.5 bu. per acre could be high. Average yield last year was 142.7 bu. and in 2010 was 152.8. If the average yield falls to the mid150s, that will mean no stock rebuilding and higher prices to ration demand. Because corn is the foundation of all grain prices, it also lifts other crops if it rises. Support for wheat prices also came from Australia last week. It said dry

weather in Western Australia has limited yield potential. It forecast its wheat crop at 24.1 million tonnes, down from the March forecast of 26 million tonnes and last year’s crop of 29.5 million. Australia’s barley production was forecast to fall by 15 percent to 7.3 million tonnes, while canola output was seen up four percent to 2.9 million tonnes. China also trimmed its crop outlook last week. It pegged all wheat production at 118 million tonnes, down from last year’s 120.3 million because of wet weather that promoted fungus disease. It said its quality would also suffer from the disease and promptly confir med the problem by buying 110,000 tonnes of U.S. soft red winter wheat, its largest purchase of that category in eight years . However, these forecast reductions were partly offset by signs of improving production in Europe. After shrinking its European crop forecasts for the past two months, Strategie Grains last week increased its outlook for soft wheat production by 1.5 million tonnes to 124.2 million tonnes. That would still be down four percent from last year’s 128.8 million tonne crop. The analysis company said recent good weather had supported yields. It increased the barley outlook by 500,000 tonnes to 53.2 million tonnes, which is up three percent from last year’s 51.6 million tonnes. The corn crop was pegged at 66 million tonnes, up 400,000 tonnes from last month and now almost equal to 66.2 million tonnes in 2011. Strategie Grains raised the durum crop by 300,000 tonnes to 7.9 million tonnes, citing reports of good quality from initial harvesting in Spain and southern Italy.

U.S. hog industry takes program complaints to Canadian officials BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

The American hog industry brought its complaints about Quebec and Ontario support programs to Canada June 14. However, pork industry leaders do not expect a new trade war to erupt soon. “We certainly aren’t thinking that anything like that is in the offing,” said Canadian Pork Council executive director Martin Rice. The American hog industry is incensed by a long-existing program in Quebec and a new one in Ontario that they say subsidizes hog production in the provinces and hurts U.S. hog producers. “The Canadian subsidy programs distort the North American hog and pork market, limiting the growth of U.S. production, employment and profitability,” National Pork Producers Council past-president Doug Wolf said in a news release after


meeting with federal and provincial bureaucrats. “Canada’s entry into the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) negotiations should be contingent on renunciation of its trade-distorting subsidies.” The council has repeatedly denounced Quebec’s Assurance Stabilisation des Revenus Agricoles (ASRA) program over the years, but Ontario’s launch of the Risk Management Program in 2011 has exacerbated tensions. The NPPC is encouraging the U.S. government to deny Canada entry to the Trans Pacific Partnership trade talks while the two programs are in operation.

The Ontario program worries producers outside the province because any trade action taken against it would target Canada as a whole rather than the allegedly culpable provinces and their farmers. The federal government has agreed to pay its usual share of the ASRA program over the years and defended it on occasion. However, federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz warned Ontario against using the Risk Management Program and didn’t mince words about it, describing it as likely countervailable. Iowa State University agricultural economist Dermot Hayes, who provided analysis for the NPPC argument against the provincial programs, said Ritz’s denunciation encourages and angers American farmers. It encourages them because it shows that Canada’s federal government does not support programs that would distort production and trade, but it also makes many Amer-

ican farmers take notice of provincial programs in Canada. “That was something that caused attention down here after your own ag minister said that,” Hayes said during the World Pork Expo. Rice said the CPC does not judge the trade-friendliness of provincial programs and has no opinion on ASRA or RMP. However, it encourages all provincial governments to take trade implications seriously when designing new programs. As well, it suggests that farmersupport programs be developed nationally rather than provincially to avoid interprovincial and international implications. The hog industry has faced several trade battles with the United States, some lasting years and costing millions of dollars. As a result, it has learned to avoid programs and actions that would bring retaliation. Hayes said the ASRA program has raised the price of Quebec market hogs by 30 percent, guaranteeing its

producers a profit. He claimed that the impact of ASRA over the next five years will be more than $350 million because of lost potential sales, while the Ontario program will cause more pork to be produced, thereby eliminating imports of American pork. The NPPC acknowledged that U.S. country-of-origin labelling, which it opposed, distorts the North American hog market, but said that the Quebec and Ontario programs have a “far greater impact.” Rice said the American industry will have trouble proving that the Canadian programs cause overproduction because production in Canada has slumped in recent years. “As an industry in Canada, we’re still producing 20 percent less than we were five or six years ago,” said Rice. “We’re not going to see any real expansion of the industry and maybe even face pressures in maintaining present production.”





U.S. foot-and-mouth scenario would slash prices Disease would close borders | The U.S.’s growing reliance on pork exports increases potential damage BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

DES MOINES, Iowa — Imagine losing all pork and beef export markets overnight. Domestic prices would fall to nearzero immediately. Over the course of a year, prices would average just 50 percent of what they were previously. Over four years, 30 percent of hog farmers would need to quit the business before the industry reached a sustainable size. It would be at least 10 years before the country could export again. That’s the frightening scenario sketched by Iowa State University agricultural economist Dermot Hayes, showing what would happen to the U.S. industry if foot-and-mouth disease broke out in the United States. “It would be worse for you in Canada,” Hayes said in an interview after a presentation at the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, Iowa. Canada relies far more upon export markets than the U.S. because of its smaller population. Hayes described his scenario as “extreme,” and said it is based on FMD appearing in wild populations of deer or pigs rather than in the farming system. However, it’s something farmers, veterinary authorities and governments need to take seriously and plan to deal with because FMD has


struck many countries. However, unlike the United Kingdom, Ireland, Taiwan or Japan, the U.S. is not a small island that can be locked down and cleaned out. FMD could be around for a long time if it got into the wild population. Hayes’ cost assessment is based on all foreign countries banning the import of U.S. pork, the standard reaction when a supplier country discovers the disease. More than one-quarter of U.S. pork was exported in 2011, so the U.S. is more vulnerable to an export disruption than it was just a few years ago, when it was a net pork importer. The U.S. domestic market would be flooded with pork if export sales were suddenly shut off. Prices would collapse immediately and farmers would have to ship and sell their market hogs regardless of the price because they wouldn’t have the

facilities to hang onto excess hogs. It would take many months for hog production to fall, so prices over the course of the first year after an FMD outbreak would probably average 50 percent of pre-outbreak levels. Low prices would linger for years until enough farmers quit the business so that domestic production matched U.S. domestic consumption. That would likely take about four years and cause 30 percent of production to disappear. The impact would also hurt the beef industry, but would be felt further than that. Grain farmers would suffer as feed grain demand fell sharply, with average corn prices falling 20 cents per bushel and soybean prices falling 60 cents per bu. Lost jobs would be 58,000 directly and 153,000 in total. “ T h a t ’s b i g g e r t h a n G e n e ra l Motors,” said Hayes. Foot-and-mouth would be difficult to control once it got into the modern livestock industry. Iowa State University food security expert James Roth said pig flow is much different than in 1929, when the U.S. last suffered an outbreak. On an average day, 625,000 pigs are on trucks on U.S. roads. “With the very extensive movement we have … it’s going to be very hard to stamp out,” said Roth.

Pork and beef prices would tumble, feed grain demand would drop and jobs would be lost if foot-and-mouth disease broke out in the United States and exports came to a halt. | FILE PHOTO

CANFAX REPORT FED CATTLE LOWER Profit taking and unease about the economy and beef demand caused investors to sell cattle futures. Packer captive inventories are increasing. Despite growing market-ready supplies in the northern United States, the weak Canadian dollar and a weak Alberta-Nebraska cash-to-cash basis kept U.S. packers interested in Canadian cattle last week. The Canfax average for fed steers was $112.96 per hundredweight, dow n $1.75, and heifers were $112.39, down $1.36. Dressed sales were generally $2-$3 lower with most trade at $190-$191 per cwt. delivered. The weaker prices caused feedlots to reduce marketings. Sales totalled 19,251, down three percent. The cash-to-futures basis weakened to close at -$6.83. Weekly fed exports to June 2 totalled 4,412, down 38 percent from the previous week. Packer margins have improved , which could prompt increased slaughter. Cut-out values are strong but are likely nearing a peak. Expected larger slaughter volumes and increased beef production will likely pressure prices lower.

COWS MIXED D1, 2 cow prices fell 75 cents per cwt. while leaner D3 prices rose 25 cents. D1, 2 cows ranged $79-$91 to average $85.14. D3 cows ranged $70$82 to average $75.75. Dressed cow prices fell $2. The rail

grade range was $154-$160. Butcher bull prices were steady to average $99.17 per cwt. Weekly western Canadian non-fed slaughter to June 9 fell six percent to 4,403. Weekly cow exports to June 2 rose 46 percent with the closure of the Levinoff-Colbex cull plant near Drummondville, Que. Total non-fed exports were up 38 percent .

FEEDER CATTLE EDGE LOWER Feeder prices fell about 50 cents per

cwt. and price ranges widened, depending on quality and lot size. Auction volume was light to moderate. More than half the cattle sold were non-fed slaughter cows and bulls. Stocker steers lighter than 600 pounds traded moderately lower. Steers 600-700 lb. fell more than $3, as did 400-600 lb. heifers. The average was weakened because of fewer quality calves in the mix. Feeders heavier than 700 lb. were mostly steady to $2.75 higher on good demand. Auction volume was

down 12 percent. Weekly feeder exports to June 2 rose 10 percent to 3,653 head. Exports are up 88 percent this year. Auction volume normally drops this time of year and remains tight until August.

CATTLE ON FEED DROPS The Alberta-Saskatchewan June 1 c at t l e - o n - f e e d re p o r t s h ow e d 844,873 head on feed, down nine percent from last year. Placements in May were 102,831,



Surging wholesale pork prices and tight market-ready hog supplies drove hog prices higher in the United States. The warm winter allowed hogs to gain weight quickly. They were sent to slaughter ahead of schedule and now supply is tight. Retailers were buying for the grilling season, and pork values were the highest since November. Traders wonder how long consumers will accept higher meat prices. Packer margins were negative and some plants cut hours of operation. Iowa-southern Minnesota live hogs jumped to $75.50 US per cwt. June 15, up from $69 June 8. U.S. pork carcass cut-out values rose to $94.12, up from $84.80 June 8. The U.S. federal weekly slaughter was estimated at 1.957 million, down from two 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. Animals outside the desirable weight range and parameters may be discounted. Slaughter cows and bulls averaged $2.40-$2.60. In the live market, heifers born in 2011 were $2-$2.40 and bulls were $2.25-$2.65.

LAMBS WEAK Beaver Hill Auction in Tofield, Alta., reported 615 sheep and 197 goats sold June 11. Wool lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $200-$250 per cwt., 70 to 85 lb. were $180-$216, 86 to 105 lb. were $168-

$185 and 106 lb. and heavier were $155-$168. Wool rams were $48-$68 per cwt. Cull ewes were $48-$64 and bred ewes were $250-$320 per head. Hair lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $210-$240 per cwt., 70-85 lb. were $170-$205, 86-105 lb. were $160$185 and 106 lb. and heavier were $140-$168. Hair rams were $72-$84 per cwt. Cull ewes were $64-$79. Good kid goats lighter than 50 lb. were $235-$275. Those heavier than 50 lb. were $225-$277.50 per cwt. Nannies were $70-$95 per cwt. Billies were $117.50-$147.50. Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported 1,349 sheep and lambs and 76 goats traded June 11. All classes of lambs sold on a spotty demand at barely steady to lower prices. Sheep and goats sold steady.

steady with last year. Marketings were 151,316, up four percent. Feedlots have a large number of feeders heavier than 800 lb., mostly pulled in from background lots. Competition for the dwindling supply is expected to intensify now that most captive feeders are on full feed. Prices are expected to be steady on quality feeders.

SPREAD WIDENS U.S. beef cutouts were mixed with Select trending lower to widen the Choice-Select spread. Loin prices are strong and demand for quality middle cuts is much better than a year ago, pushing the ChoiceSelect spread to the widest level in six years. The Montreal wholesale prices for delivery this week was steady, ranging from $210-$212. Weekly Canadian cut-out values to June 8 were mixed with the spread here also widening. AAA value rose $4.58 and AA fell $1.29. Weekly Canadian fed slaughter to June 9 rose seven percent at 49,913 head. Slaughter is down one percent this year.

Farmers take bull by horns with right-to-farm proposal


orth Dakota’s biggest farm group has proposed that a right-to-farm clause be added to the state constitution. The move is prompted by worries that animal rights advocates could design state laws on livestock welfare and potentially even make standard production practices a criminal offence. The state’s Farm Bureau is gathering the 26,904 signatures needed to put the following initiative on a ballot in this fall’s election. “The right of farmers and ranchers to engage in modern farming and ranching practices shall be forever guaranteed in this state. No law shall be enacted which abridges the right of farmers and ranchers to employ agricultural technology, modern livestock production and ranching practices.” Farm Bureau leaders were spurred to action by the success of animal rights groups in other states in getting referenda passed banning the use of sow stalls, chicken battery cages and veal calf pens. Worrisome too is the effort of some North Dakota humane groups, supported by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), to pass a ballot initiative to make severe cruelty to dogs, cats and horses a felony in the state. North Dakota, South Dakota and Idaho are the only states where animal cruelty is only a misdemeanour. State farm groups are not against strong legislation and are working on an alternate proposal protecting all animals, not just companion animals. The farm groups’ real worry is the involvement of the HSUS and its agenda, which is not only to protect animals but to “reform industries,” particularly livestock production. They fear a slippery slope that would ultimately criminalize the production of commodity animals. Canadian farmers watching these developments might think it is high time North Dakotans develop robust animal protection laws.

In Canada, cruelty to animals is in the Criminal Code and its penalties were updated and made more severe in 2008. Farmers here might also breathe a sigh of relief that our political system does not encourage referenda that can be manipulated by well-funded interest groups such as the HSUS. However, Canadian farmers are not isolated from another agenda of animal welfare activists: corporate influence. On that front, activists have brilliantly developed a strategy to turn retailers into animal welfare watchdogs. They have pressured a long and growing list of restaurant chains and food retailers to demand farmer suppliers follow proscribed production practices. What value is a right-to-farm statement in a constitution when food companies, prodded by animal rights groups, dictate production practices? There is much talk about the power of value chains, where primary producers, processors and retailers work together to enhance the profitability of each link in the chain, but the producer’s voice is ignored when it comes to animal welfare standards. It revealed much when the announcement that Safeway was moving to a gestation stall-free supply chain came in a joint news release of Safeway and the HSUS. Hog producer groups were left out. HSUS owns shares in most major U.S. food companies and uses high profile annual corporate meetings to criticize company presidents about the animal welfare standards of its suppliers. As U.S. National Pork Producers Council vice-president Dallas Hockman put it, the companies hate the attention and are desperate for a “get out of jail card.” They find it by agreeing to the HSUS’s demands. Livestock producers and farm groups must cultivate the same corporate influence. Bruce Dyck, Terry Fries, Barb Glen, D’Arce McMillan and Joanne Paulson collaborate in the writing of Western Producer editorials.




New import controls will include the power to prohibit the importation of unsafe food commodities, importers will be held accountable for the safety of the products they bring in, establishing a more level playing field between importers and domestic producers.

There are no existing provisions to prevent those unsafe (imported) products from entering our country in the first place. What is more, when an importer is breaking the law, our enforcement measures are not as stringent as they could be.






Fight against Ritz and elimination of wheat board may now draw to a close NATIONAL VIEW



rom the beginning, supporters of ending the CWB marketing monopoly saw the December Federal Court judgment against the government as a political manifesto rather than legal argument. On June 18, the Federal Court of Appeal was curt in its dismissal of the lower court legal arguments, eviscerating every one of them as incorrect.

It veered close to finding some political arguments in the original judgment as well, although wrapped in the required legalese. Similar veiled accusations were made in May when the government argued its appeal of Federal Court judge Douglas Campbell’s ruling against agriculture minister Gerry Ritz. For example, when federal justice department lawyer Robert MacKinnon made his pitch during the oneday appeal court hearing in Ottawa, he noted that Campbell had issued a 21-page judgment condemning Ritz the day after he heard arguments. Hmmm, wonder if he was suggesting subtly that the good judge had made up his mind before the hearing? Of course, he did not say. Then there was Campbell’s asser-

tion that he accepted the argument from the Council of Canadians that the CWB had to be “democratic” to meet its obligations under the North American Free Trade Agreement, which the council opposes. The council’s argument, accepted by Campbell, was that the CWB withstood trade challenges because of its “democratic structure” that separated the board from government control. Why that would be relevant as a legal argument was never explained. And the CWB withstood trade challenges long before the 1998 amendments that gave farmers the right to elect 10 of 15 directors. However, the appeal court judgment dismissed even Campbell’s political conclusion about the trade effects of ending the monopoly.

The lower court judge’s argument was that the board survived trade challenges because there was no government control. “The principal purpose of the Marketing Freedom for Grain Farmers Act is to allow an open and free market for grain producers by putting an end to the CWB marketing monopoly,” wrote appeal court justice Robert Mainville for the unanimous court opinion. “It is hard to understand how this purpose would run afoul of NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) or of any other of Canada’s international trade agreements.” Campbell also assigned considerable weight to the fact that 62 percent of farmers in a CWB-organized vote, not recognized be the government, opted to support the single

desk for wheat. He said that was a democratic farmer expression that the government should respect. The appeal court noted that opponents challenged the fairness and legitimacy of the producer vote. And since the appeal court decided the government could not be captive of a small group of citizens with a special interest, the vote result didn’t matter anyway. With CWB supporters stuck with the court costs and in the face of a unanimous court judgment, this may be the legal end of the CWB battle, although an attempt to appeal to the Supreme Court is possible. At the very least, for the moment Ritz has been freed from the idea promoted by his opponents that he violated “the rule of law.”

They pinpointed two areas they believed could improve the industry, both related to the browning issue: • The browning issue places the cutfood market out of reach for the apple industry. Non-browning varieties have the potential to change that. Currently, sliced apples used in this market are dipped in chemical solutions to preserve the white colour, but still don’t deliver the highest quality product. As well, the added cost makes fresh-cut apples non-competitive with other fresh produce convenience items. • Superficial browning results in real costs for every member of the apple supply chain, from grower to

the grocer. These truly skin deep blemishes result in lost sales and profits, resulting in a less sustainable fresh apple business. OSF licensed the rights to use a technology developed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization in Australia. Arctic Apples have been developed through the application of a reliable technology in which genes responsible for the browning process are silenced. Silencing does not involve the insertion of genes of a different species into the apple plant. Rather, exist-

ing genes responsible for browning within the plant are switched off. OSF’s practical solution could translate to less waste, which would benefit the entire value chain: producers, wholesalers, retailers and consumers. The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization reported in a 2011 study that one-third of all food produced globally is wasted before consumption, which is not sustainable in a world with a growing population and finite natural resources. This innovation also has the potential to increase the use of apples in

restaurants and as a convenient and healthy snack food. In December 2011, OSF began the government review process required to take this novel food to market in Canada. The company is participating in a voluntary notice of submission process with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, giving the Canadian public the opportunity to comment on its Arctic Apple submission. Stewardship and transparency are high priorities for OSF. The company is revealing its technology and methods for public scrutiny because it is confident in its safety, both for people and the environment. Ag-West Bio has great confidence in the Canadian regulatory process. The regulatory system for novel plants and novel food is administered by the CFIA and Health Canada. The rigorous science-based process ensures food safety for Canadian consumers. It should also be noted that biotech crops and their products have been grown on more than 2.5 billion acres and consumed by millions of people around the globe for more than 15 years without a single incidence of negative health effects. We believe it is impor tant to embrace innovations such as Arctic Apples that lead to value-added agricultural products and benefits for all society, from producers through to consumers.

Levies on top of levies is worrisome trend HURSH ON AG



e have a confusing hodgepodge of crop checkoffs, and it’s only going to get

worse. The CWB monopoly created a handy way to deduct wheat and barley check-off money. It came off producers’ final payments, negating the need for point-of-sale deductions. Point-of-sale deductions will begin after Aug. 1 and the money will ultimately go to the Western Grains Research Foundation, the Canadian International Grains Institute and the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre. These organizations do great work

and most producers understand their value. The checkoff will remain mandatory but refundable. However, the flow will no longer be as simple. The federal government plans to turn over administration of the levy to the Alberta Barley Commission. Interestingly, the barley commission uses Levy Central in Saskatoon to collect its own levy on barley, and it will likely be Levy Central that collects the new point-of-sale levy. Alberta already deducts a barley levy, so the new point-of-sale barley levy will be 56 cents a tonne on Manitoba and Saskatchewan barley but only four cents a tonne on Alberta barley. So what is Levy Central? Operating out of sight to most producers, it is run by the Agriculture Council of Saskatchewan. About a dozen commodity organizations use Levy Central’s services because it’s far more efficient for one organization to deal with grain buyers on the various levies. So if the plan proceeds as expected, the new wheat and barley levy will be collected by grain buyers and passed to Levy Central, which will in turn

pass it along to the Alberta Barley Commission, which will in turn divvy it up between the three research and market development organizations. The barley commission will be responsible for handling producer refund requests. The plan is transitional, with change expected within five years. The government is trying to tread lightly. After all, this is farmer money. However, a decision has to be made on how funding is going to flow after wheat and barley marketing is changed. Meanwhile, wheat producers in Alberta have set up their own provincial wheat commission and there are discussions in Saskatchewan and Manitoba about doing the same. That means two levels of checkoffs on the same commodity. All the money is going to worthy causes, but it’s another hand in farmers’ pockets. Most of the other commodities have provincial levies and there seems to be little hope of bringing these under one umbrella. Each prairie province has its own

canola levy. Mustard has a levy in Saskatchewan, but the roughly 25 percent produced in Alberta is not subject to a levy. Alberta mustard producers get a free ride on the research work funded by Saskatchewan mustard producers. Some of the levies are based on a set amount per tonne. Others are set at a small percentage of the gross sales value. It’s confusing and there is duplication of administration, but easy solutions are elusive. Provincial levies have been established with the support of producers to fund research and market development. Australia has one centrally administered levy on all commodities. It’s higher than what Canadian farmers are paying, but collection and administration are simplified. This is often held up as a model for what Canada should adopt, but we’re a long way from going that direction. Kevin Hursh is an agricultural journalist, consultant and farmer.

Book will make you smile, despite the weather


flew to Winnipeg last week. My colleagues and I left Tuesday afternoon after yet another thundershower and stared in amazement out the windows at the land. Every pothole, every slough, every dip in every field was brimming with water. Sure, it’s been raining, but holy cow — what a lot of water. While we were in verdant, but much less soggy, southern Manitoba, it rained some more in Saskatchewan. It rained hammers and nails, my husband said. Flying back on Thursday, we again looked out the windows at the fields and couldn’t believe the difference. In just two days, some fields went from studded with ponds to shimmering with water. If anyone up there is listening (I am talking to you, Mother Nature), cut it out. Speaking of cows (see second paragraph), I do have a suggestion for temporarily diverting one’s attention from these ridiculous conditions. It’s a volume of poetry entitled The History of Naming Cows (Hagios Press) by Mitch Spray. I like poetry, although I realize not everyone does, but in this case, I think most people, especially farm people, will be on the same page, so to speak. Spray was raised on a small mixed farm near Okla, Sask., says his biography on the back page. Even it is well written. “He can cut and saw lumber, calve, nurse and kill cattle, cut the meat and wrap it. He has changed a few toilets, wields a mean cleaver and will clean the resulting dead chickens.” That a farm boy with those talents can also write poetry shows excellent multi-tasking skills. The History of Naming Cows landed on my desk on Friday, and this is Monday, so I can’t say I have read every word or had time to really absorb it all. But this is worth a read. It’s gritty, moving, gory, farm-loving, grassroots poetry. I particularly enjoyed coming across the names of the cows: Old Kick in the Head, Lucky, Liz, Billy, Salt, Pepper and my personal favourite, Katmandoo (a bull, naturally.) I don’t want to share too many because it’s always a wonderful surprise when a new one appears in the next poem. If you have the tiniest urge to catch some wonderful words, try Mitch Spray. If you’re from a farm, you’ll love them.

BIOFUELS STUDY WRONG To the Editor: An op-ed (May 10 WP) on biofuels and greenhouse gas balances by Eric Merkley of the Frontier Centre for Public Policy provides a classical example of the half truth. It’s true, as he states, that two papers published in Science in 2008 — and notably one by Searchinger at Princeton University — claimed that expanded biofuel production means large-scale conversion of long-term forests and grasslands into crop production, with the resultant mega release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. But Merkley failed to mention the substantial number of readily accessible studies published since, including a joint one from the United States departments of energy and agriculture and one from Purdue University, showing that Searchinger calculations were either extreme or simply wrong. In the U.S., which is the focus of the Searchinger paper, the acreage planted to major crops, primarily grains and soybeans, is now about 40 million acres less than in 1980, biofuel production notwithstanding. I hope this is not representative of the Frontier Institute’s policy research. Terry Daynard, Guelph, Ont.

WHOSE BENEFITS? To the Editor: Four articles in the May 17 Western Producer are interconnected as well as interesting.

The same Martin and Stiefelmeyer argued before the Conservative (agriculture) senate committee for a move away from government subsidies for farmers. Stiefelmeyer’s vision for the future of farming in Canada includes large farm enterprises, getting “rid of the middle” and small niche farms to service local markets.

here’s no place more remarkable for seeing a wonderful array of colour than in Waterton National Park. The remarkable artist who drew attention to this beauty was Annora Brown. She grew up in Fort Macleod, Alta., and returned there in the 1930s to care for her ailing parents. Whenever she could, she went to the rock pile down the alley and painted the tiny flowers peaking out. She also felt compelled to paint fence lines and elevators, elements that gave structure to the Prairies. She was spiritually nourished in the Porcupine Hills and along the eastern slope of the Rockies. “When I look deep into the heart of a flower, I feel as if a presence surrounds me, as if the spirits of the earth were coming out to share this moment with me,” she wrote. Here she experienced God. She encouraged people to see beauty in what they thought were weeds. The importance of her portfolio was finally recognized by the Glenbow Museum, who commissioned her to paint 200 rare flowers peculiar to the foothills and mountains. Not only did she have to climb rocky ledges, fend off mosquitoes and face the constantly changing weather, but she also had to fend off aficionados. People would arrive at her home expecting tea while shopping. She painted 500 canvases over three years for the 200 canvases she needed for the museum — an average of three canvases per week. A reviewer commenting on a 1972 exhibit wrote: “Annora Brown is the hand of the flower sower and the eye of time, for when the lily blooms no more, should man be yet alive, she will review for him the glory that was and advise him of the glory to be.” Joyce Sasse writes for the Canadian Rural Church Network at www.canadian

20,000 acre farm sold to colony Hudye Farms | Walsh, Alta., area colony plans to start new colony near Norquay, Sask. BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The Hudye family from Norquay, Sask., has sold its 20,000 acre grain farm to members of the Spring Creek Hutterite colony near Walsh, Alta. The move is one of the larger single sales of farmland in Western Canada, says Braden Hudye. He said the sale will spark the development of a new colony, to be known as Crystal Lake, and include Hudye Farms’ equipment, grain storage and land. Paul and Pauline Hudye started the family farm after the Second World War and expanded the operation to cover 2,300 acres by the mid-1950s. They brought sons Greg and Ben into the business in 1980, incorporating the farm, expanding it and including other family members over the years. The operation diversified with an

agronomy, marketing and farm inputs business that now sponsors Field of Dreams, an annual project aimed at maximizing yield in wheat and canola crops. The family has also diversified its operations with a 16,000 acre U.S. farmland business in western Kansas and eastern Colorado, an American wind energy business, an oil and gas operation in southern Manitoba and the United States, commercial real estate in Canada and the U.S. and residential real estate in Arizona. It also runs a bison ranch near Norquay. Braden Hudye said the family had reached some of its goals in grain farming and now wants to invest in other areas. “We’re going to take a little time to examine where to go next with our portfolio, but we already have a lot of diversity.” Hudye said the family chose to sell to members of Spring Creek largely because of the group’s commitment to the community and sustainable agriculture. The family made the sale with the use of a broker, saying the single sale of the land and other grain business assets was the best overall divestiture plan for them. According to Farm Credit Canada, farmland in the Norquay area has been selling for about $875 per acre over the past year, with prices peaking at $1,125. These figures would put the Norquay deal in the $20 million range, although Hudye did not give a selling price.


Ottawa plans to ease gun sale record keeping OTTAWA BUREAU

Proposed new government regulations would end the requirement that long gun sellers record sales data that could be used by police to track firearm ownership. The regulations were tabled in Parliament and sent to the Senate committee on legal and constitutional affairs for study June 14. It is expected to approve them this week. As he tabled the regulations , public safety minister Vic Toews said it was important to stop the unnecessary collection of data of sales of unrestricted guns. Quebec has filed a court case demanding information on Quebec gun ownership so it can create its own gun registry to replace the federal version in the province. Toews insists federal data in the gun registry bank collected for 17 years will not be made available to provinces, and data on sales of unregistered rifles should not be kept.





U.S. group to study effects of renewable fuel mandate

Lack of co-operation hurts ag research

Some senators want the mandate abolished BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The industry that helped give rise to today’s high grain prices is under attack. A federal program that is the backbone of the U.S. ethanol and biodiesel industry is going under the microscope. A newly formed U.S. senate group will conduct a review of the Renewable Fuel Standard Program (RFS2), which establishes federal mandates for biodiesel and ethanol. The RFS2 has been a major factor in the rise of grain prices. The ethanol industry consumed 41 percent of the 2011-12 U.S. corn crop, which is more than what the U.S. livestock feed industry bought. One of the group’s founders, senator James Inhofe, has made it clear what he thinks of U.S. biofuel policy. “I’ve had problems with ethanol for as long as I can remember and I’m going to be doing what I can to relieve that and do away with the mandate,” he told a government-run publication that covers congress. The group plans to start its work in mid-June and continue its sessions until late September. It will conduct a “seed-to-wheels” analysis of every aspect of the RFS2, including market impacts, environmental issues and its influence on food prices. The U.S. Renewable Fuels Association said the Senate’s working group is being formed at the same time as a coalition of anti-ethanol groups prepares to launch a multimillion-dollar, multi-year campaign to eliminate the RFS2. The coalition includes powerful lobbyists like the American Petroleum Institute, Grocery Manufacturers Association, the National Chicken Council and Friends of the Earth. BiofuelsDigest said the same coalition was responsible for eliminating the ethanol blender’s tax credit in 2011. Its new objective is to repeal or substantially alter the RFS2 by the end of the 113th U.S. Congress Jan. 3, 2015. “I think it’s really important for the industry to know that the wolves are at the door,” renewable fuels association president Bob Dinneen said in a news release. “The RFS is under attack in Washington, D.C., today.” Dinneen said if the ethanol industry is facing a “seed-to-wheels” examination, then the oil industry should be placed under a similar “war-to-wheels” scrutiny. He anticipates the oil industry will do everything in its power to prevent a plan to increase the allowable ethanol blend at the pumps to 15 from 10 percent. “It’s going to be up to all of us to explain to people how E15 can’t hurt your radiator and how one fill up can’t hurt your fuel pump,” Dinneen said. “Brace yourselves. It will be brutal. We are going to have to be vigilant for when this occurs.”


Government, university link lost | ‘We have had a serious deterioration of our infrastructure over time:’ researcher BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Canada’s agricultural research effort has been hurt by a decline in co-operation between federal and provincial governments and with universities, says a senior university research director. The result has been a challenge to Canada’s ability to compete and innovate. Richard Moccia, associate vicepresident for research at the University of Guelph, told members of the Senate agriculture committee studying research performance that some

links have eroded over the years and research has suffered. He said robust results from research are necessary to keep agriculture a key player in the Canadian economy and to renew its potential. “I see this as a significant industry for Canada that increasingly falls below the radar of the common citizen of Canada, 90 percent of whom live in urban centres now, and we need to reposition the importance of agri-food and what it contributes to Canada’s economy, job creation and the opportunity for global competitiveness with new technology,” he told the committee during a

recent appearance. “We have been a world leader and we need to regain our international prominence in agri-food technology.” Moccia said there has been a decline in contact between government and university researchers who often worked together in the past but now typically do not. He said the same gap exists in planning investment in research facilities. “If you have been in the agri-food industry in academics for more than 20 years or so, you will know that we have had a serious deterioration of

There is an “unprecedented need” to reinvest in research infrastructure, w h i c h re q u i re s c o l l a b o ra t i o n between all players in the system, he added. Moccia also said there must be more federal-provincial collaboration in setting research priorities that will factor into a national system. Financing of research has been declining so smart priority setting is all the more important, he said. Moccia also said more attention should be paid to the connection between agricultural research and public health.




A unique watering system on the grazing reserve in western Alberta provides animals access to fresh drinking water through a series of solar pumps, dugouts, springs and water siphoning systems.


Where cattle and oil come together BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

With our grazing, we want to try to manage our resource and water to keep it for the long term. MALCOM MILLER PASTURE MANAGER

DRAYTON VALLEY, Alta. — Oil and water may not mix, but oil and agriculture work well when managed carefully. There are more than 200 oil wells and associated roads, pipelines and truck traffic on the 19,000-acre Pembina Provincial Grazing Reserve west

of Drayton Valley. Compensation for the oil activity goes directly to the provincial government, which owns the land. “The challenge, or opportunity, is how to deal with this,” said Stewart McKay, Sustainable Resource Development’s rangeland manager for the area. With that many wells, gates get left open and trucks kick up dust all summer long as they rattle along the rough gravel roads between well sites. “No surface compensation is one of the issues,” said McKay, who helps negotiate between the government, the grazing reserve and the energy companies. To offset the inconvenience, some energy contractors build dugouts or other necessary maintenance on the 25-year-old grazing reserve. Allan Goddard, chair of Brazeau County’s Agricultural Service Board, said Drayton Valley and the surrounding county were subsistence agriculture before oil was discovered in the area. “Oil came in and brought jobs, brought money and brought infrastructure,” said Goddard. Mud trails became roads, gravel roads were paved and farmers finally had extra cash. “When oil came it brought jobs. A lot of farmers got their start by working out,” said Goddard, who adds himself to the list of farmers benefiting from the energy industry. “If we didn’t have oil revenue on our property, I would also be working out.” With its high rainfall, peat moss, plentiful grass and thick timber, Brazeau County is cattle country. Before BSE was discovered in Canada in 2003, it wasn’t uncommon for the Pembina Grazing Reserve to have a 25-person waiting list of ranchers from across the province wanting to graze their cattle for the summer. “At one time, the amount of cattle that came to Brazeau County from May to September was phenomenal,” said Goddard. Cattle country is what Wendell Sekura saw when he first came to Drayton Valley in 1965 to open a livestock auction market. “There was not a lot of cattle, but I saw grass grow,” said Sekura, whose

family operates a land auction and livestock auction business in Drayton Valley and Westlock. Cattle numbers have dropped since BSE and the waiting list for the Pembina Grazing Reserve has dropped to a handful. It’s up to the grazing reserve’s board of directors to balance the needs of cattle producers, the energy industry, hunters and other recreational users. “For the most part we get along with them pretty well,” said Cecil Andersen, chair of the reserve’s board of directors. Each spring, 1,400 cow-calf pairs and 260 yearling heifers are brought to the reserve. It costs patrons $18 an animal unit month to graze on the reserve. The cattle are divided into five herds and rotated through the 7,700 acres of improved pasture. Each pasture is grazed about two and a half times a year. “The priority is to graze cattle and treat grass as a sustainable resource,” said pasture manager Malcolm Miller. “With our grazing, we want to try to manage our resource and water to keep it for the long term.” An extensive system of solar pumps and siphoning systems and tanks give cattle access to fresh water in each pasture. “The big benefit is clean, fresh water, especially for the young stock,” said Miller. All the work is done from horseback in a “stockman-like” manner. “We want out stock quiet and stress free.” Last year, there were only 16 dead and lost stock at the end of the season.





FDA told to rethink animal feed antibiotics A U.S. judge ordered two petitions to be reconsidered

Reuters — A U.S. federal judge says the Amer ican Food and Dr ug Administration had done “shockingly little” to address the human health risks of antibiotic use in animal feed and ordered the agency to reconsider two petitions seeking restrictions on the practice. The ruling, filed recently in a lawsuit brought by environmental and public-health groups, is the second recent setback for the FDA amid long-standing concern that overuse of antibiotics in animal feed is endangering human health by creating antibiotic-resistant bacteria. U.S. magistrate judge Theodore Katz in New York questioned the federal agency’s arguments that it would be less costly and more efficient to ask the industry to voluntarily cut back on the use of such antibiotics, rather than go through the regulatory process of revoking the approval of such drug use on farms and at feedlots. “For over 30 years, the agency has been confronted with evidence of the human health risks associated with the widespread subtherapeutic use of antibiotics in food-producing animals, and, despite a statutory mandate to ensure the safety of animal drugs, the agency has done shockingly little to address these risks,” Katz wrote. In March, Katz ordered the FDA to complete proceedings to withdraw approval for the non-therapeutic use of penicillin and tetracycline in

livestock production unless makers of the drugs can produce evidence that their use is safe. The agency started the process in 1977, but never completed it. The FDA declined to comment on the latest ruling. It filed a notice of appeal last month of the March order. An estimated 80 percent of all antibiotics sold in the United States are for use in agriculture, according to data reported by the FDA. Critics of antibiotics in animal feed called the ruling a victory. Organizations such as the Union of Concerned Scientists and the American Academy of Pediatrics argue that such farming practices endanger people who grow ill from resistant bacteria but cannot be treated with standard antibiotic therapies. The livestock industry was disappointed by Katz’s order, and said the use of such medications is necessary to prevent and treat animal health issues. Industry officials, citing conflicting scientific research, say such practices pose little risk to public health. “The actual human health risk of the use of antibiotic use in animals resulting in the inability of the drug to treat human disease is extremely small — in one instance, less than the risk of dying from a bee sting,” the Animal Health Institute, a trade group that represents pharmaceutical companies, said in a statement.

Farmers take action with right to farm plan North Dakota lobby group | The group is collecting signatures to allow a vote that would prevent groups from interfering with agricultural practices STORIES BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Most American farmers used to make a clear distinction between People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and the Humane Society of the United States. Now, producers in many states, including North Dakota, refer to the two organizations in the same breath to describe groups that are anti-animal agriculture. For example, Jeff Missling, executive vice-president of the North Dakota Farm Bureau, calls the humane society a radicalized extremist group. “Their long-term goal is to make everyone a vegetarian or a vegan and try to shut down meat consumption,” he said. “They’re going about it incrementally by initially … trying to attack our animal agricultural industry.” After watching the humane society sponsor or financially support successful ballot initiatives that banned sow gestation crates, battery cages and veal crates in several states, livestock producers and farmers in North Dakota decided the humane society would eventually target animal agriculture practices in their state. Instead of waiting for the humane society to arrive, the farm bureau launched a pre-emptive strike last summer. Since August, the farm lobby group has been collecting signatures for a right to farm ballot initiative for the next general election. If they collect 26,904 signatures, or four percent of the state’s population, by Aug. 8, North Dakota voters will vote Nov. 6 on a proposed amendment to the state constitution. The proposal reads: “The right of farmers and ranchers to engage in modern farming and ranching practices shall be forever guaranteed in this state. No law shall be enacted which abridges the right of farmers and ranchers to employ agricultural technology, modern livestock production and ranching practices.” Missling said the amendment, if approved by voters, would prevent outside groups from meddling with animal agriculture practices in the state. Science based practices that satisfy U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Drug Administration and Environmental Protection Agency standards could not be banned. “Provided we do it legally and utilize that stuff the right way, why shouldn’t we have that right to continue to do that … without fear of retribution,” he said. The amendment doesn’t mean farmers will be above the law, Missling added. Producers will still have to follow state and federal regulations that govern farm practices. The farm bureau and its allies have

collected more than 20,000 signatures and expect to easily surpass the 26,904 threshold by Aug. 8. Julie Ellingson, executive vicepresident of the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association, said cattle ranchers support the right to farm initiative. The concept was inspired by a recent plebiscite on hunting rights in North Dakota, she added. “A ballot initiative was passed that would protect the constitutional right for sportsmen activities,” she said. “I think that was a catalyst … for the constitutional protection for modern farming practices, so a group or legislation couldn’t arbitrarily ban a certain practice.” Missling said the idea of amending a state constitution to protect farm practices is unique. “It really is one of the first big stands where a state is trying to take this on

and amend a state constitution to address some of these issues,” said Missling. He said he has received calls and e-mails from media and farm groups from across America who are curious about the concept. Ellingson said North Dakota farmers support the right to farm amendment largely because they don’t trust the humane society. “I think there is more of a recognition, in recent years, of what the Humane Society of the United States is really all about,” she said. “The frustrating thing for us, in animal agriculture, is that the HSUS is a savvy marketer. They do a good job of getting donations from wellmeaning people through ads for sappy eyed dogs and cats and polar bears.” The humane society didn’t provide a comment for this story before deadline.

North Dakota gets tough on animal cruelty

Group petitions closure of shelterbelt centre

Besides the right to farm ballot initiative, North Dakotans may also vote this November on another plebiscite related to animals. North Dakotans to Stop Animal Cruelty, a coalition of animal shelters, veterinarians and animal control officers, is advocating for stronger animal cruelty laws in the state. Its proposed ballot initiative would make aggravated cruelty toward cats, dogs and horses a felony. Therefore, any person who intentionally burns, poisons, suffocates, bludgeons, drags or seriously harms a cat, dog or horse could be charged with a felony. The state is only one of three in the United States, along with South Dakota and Idaho, which classify extreme animal cruelty as a misdemeanor. “Right now our state’s cruelty laws are sadly lagging behind those of the rest of the country,” said Alison Smith of Triple H Miniature Horse Rescue in Mandan, N.D. “North Dakotans want better protections for our companion animals.” A public opinion poll last fall found that 63 percent of North Dakotans strongly supported the proposed changes. However, agricultural groups such as the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association oppose the proposed

Several North Dakota groups are pushing for more strict animal care laws, including neglect, cruelty and abandonment. | FILE PHOTO ballot initiative. “It’s narrow in its focus, focusing only on three species. It doesn’t include the more common forms of animal mistreatment so we don’t think it would move the needle on the care of animals,” said Julie Ellingson, executive-vice president of the stockmen’s association. As well, the Humane Society of the United States endorses the proposed changes, which is a large, red flag for the stockmen’s association. “(It’s) a group that has a long track record of working against animal agriculture,” Ellingson said. In response to the animal cruelty ballot initiative, the stockmen’s association, other farm groups, the North

Dakota Veterinary Medical Association and two local humane societies are proposing alternate legislation that will protect all animals rather than not just horses, cats and dogs. On June 14, North Dakotans for Responsible Animal Care released its proposed changes to the state’s Humane Treatment of Animals law. The coalition is proposing legislative changes that are larger in scope than the animal cruelty plebiscite. The changes would strengthen animal care laws, addressing animal abandonment, neglect and cruelty. As well, it would impose penalties based on the severity of abuse: small penalties for slight offenses and felonies for the most serious crimes.

A citizens’ group in Indian Head, Sask., plans to keep pressuring Ottawa to reverse its decision to close the Prairie Shelterbelt Centre. The Save the Prairie Shelterbelt Program group recently presented a petition to Regina-Qu’Appelle MP Andrew Scheer that contains 3,800 names calling on the prime minister to keep the centre open. Group spokesperson Bruce Neill said Scheer promised to take the petitions to Ottawa. Other petitions are still in circulation in Saskatchewan, and Neill hopes landowners and interested parties from Alberta and Manitoba will also take up the cause. The federal government has said it will close the centre, which has provided free trees to landowners for 111 years. Next spring will be the last for tree distribution from the centre. The government is also looking for a buyer to take over the operation. Neill and Gord Howe, both former

managers of the centre, are heading the community group that has rallied to keep the facility open and under government operation. “I know for me and Gord Howe, we invested so much of our careers and our time in this, we’d feel worse if we didn’t do anything,” Neill said. He admitted it’s an uphill battle against a majority government. However, the group has already won one concession. The deadline for a purchase agreement to be in place has been extended from Aug. 31 to next February. Neill said the group he speaks for is not involved in putting forward a proposal. He also said it still isn’t clear what will happen to the land and buildings occupied by the shelterbelt centre. The federal government has said agroforestry research done at the centre will continue, but Neill said employees won’t have a place to work if the land and buildings are sold unless some kind of arrangements are made for them to stay on the site.

EDMONTON — Short video clips of producers tossing out blocks of salt or sorting cattle may seem ordinary to those who live on a farm, but they make ideal vignettes to post on You Tube to show how producers care for their animals. Ryder Lee, manager of federal and provincial relations with the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association, wants producers to send him video clips of farmers taking care of their animals. “I’m looking for content from producers of what they do to take care of their animals,” said Lee at the Alberta Beef Producer’s semi-annual meeting. Videos can range from delivering a calf to sorting cattle or putting the cattle on grass, said Lee, who will put the video clips on the CCA website. L ee said livestock producers should tell their stories more often, instead of reacting to what others say. He said many of the agriculture messages he sees in the media are negative, such as a cattle liner involved in a traffic accident. He said he sees no video links of farmers involved in their ordinary work. “We’ve got a good story to tell, but we are too busy raising animals to go out and tell it.”

Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan are trying to get a better understanding of ticks and how they could affect horses. They are asking Saskatchewan horse owners to participate in an ongoing survey by submitting samples of ticks they find on their animals. The research stems from a case in 2010 in which a horse in southern Saskatchewan was found to have the tick-borne disease anaplasmosis. “That was just a very unexpected disease to find in Saskatchewan because it’s a tick-borne disease and we’re not really supposed to have

established populations of the ticks that carry that disease,” said Katharina Lohmann of the university’s Western College of Veterinary Medicine, who is leading the project. Ticks do exist in Saskatchewan, including winter, Rocky Mountain and American dog, but anaplasmosis is associated with the less common blacklegged tick, which can also carry a bacteria linked to lyme disease. A horse in Saskatchewan that doesn’t travel is likely to encounter the blacklegged tick only when it’s introduced by migratory birds, said Lohmann. “Realistically, the risk to a horse that resides in Saskatchewan and


doesn’t leave the province is probably really slim,” she said. “But it apparently isn’t none, given that we saw it happen.” These tick-borne diseases are treatable, but their diagnosis can be difficult. Lohmann hopes to raise awareness among horse owners. “Anecdotally, it seems that the ticks are more present in certain parts of the province and less in other parts, but that hasn’t really been documented,” she said. The survey, which Lohmann said will be conducted over several years, should provide researchers with a better idea. Owners submitting samples have to fill out a short questionnaire describing their animal’s

location, travel history and how the ticks were attached to the animal. “If we find any of the blacklegged ticks, it would be interesting if they’re actually infected ticks or not and how many of those we find,” she said. “We’re not expecting to find very many.” Researchers have also collected blood samples from horses in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario, which will be tested for antibodies that indicate if the animal has been in contact with the disease-causing bacteria. “Hopefully, based on some preliminary data, we can then design further studies to maybe look into this a little bit further,” said Lohmann.

Dying to be thin

Misunderstood illnesses | Up to three percent of Canadian women older than 14 battle eating disorders


New health centre planned for Regina Province will pay half





Erin Dowling was diagnosed with anorexia when she 10. By the time she was 18, she was also bulimic. Today, Dowling runs a program to help others overcome the eating disorders she battled for 16 years. Seriously ill at one point, she had to make a conscious decision to fight back before she could begin to recover from her debilitating disease. “I wanted to get my life back. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired,” said Dowling, who is now 29. “I knew that if I was able to get help and be well, I could help others.” Dowling chaired a June 8 conference in Winnipeg on eating disorders hosted by the Manitoba division of the Canadian Mental Health Association. The conference featured presentations by specialists about eating disorders and how to deal with them. According to Health Canada, one to three percent of females older than 14 will experience an eating disorder. These conditions have become high profile in recent years, partly because of celebrities who decided to go public about their struggles with the disease. The conference heard from Tracey Gold, an actress from the 1980s sitcom Growing Pains, who nearly died of anorexia and today speaks to groups about the dangers of eating disorders. However, while these disorders are getting more attention, there’s still much about them that remains unknown, Dowling said. She said eating disorders are primarily a mental illness with complicated causes. They come with huge emotional, social and physical issues, and the overwhelming pressure to be thin in a weight-obsessed society adds to the strain. There’s also some suggestion that family genetics can influence the development of a disorder. “One of the things we say sometimes is that genetics loads the gun


and environment pulls the trigger,” said Dowling. “It becomes almost a perfect storm of different contributing factors that result in an eating disorder.” Dowling co-ordinates the Eating Disorders Self-Help Program run by the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Manitoba division. According to a program brochure, the program teaches that eating disorders are not about food or weight

but about behaviour in a society that “does not support his/her natural way of being in the world.” The program helps clients reestablish “a healthy relationship with food, their bodies and their sense of self.” There are three main types of eating disorders: anorexia (starving oneself ), bulimia (which involves self-induced vomiting) and binge eating. All three have serious and

sometimes fatal health consequences, but they are also treatable and full recovery is possible. “But what really has to happen before any of it can work is that an individual needs to be ready for change, needs to be ready to get well and needs to be ready to let go of her eating disorder,” Dowling said.

Rural residents in southern Saskatchewan will be going back to the Plains for health care. P r e m i e r B r a d Wa l l r e c e n t l y announced that a new Plains Surgery and Outpatient Care Centre will be located across the road from the former Plains Hospital in Regina, which closed in 1998 after a bitter debate. The new centre will serve as an ambulatory facility providing day surgery, diagnostic imaging, pharmacy, rehabilitation and outpatient cancer care. Any health service that doesn’t require an overnight stay could be offered in the new building. The provincial government announced approval in principle for the 200,000 sq. foot facility to be located on land it already owns. It will pay half the estimated $50 to $60 million price tag. The Hospitals of Regina Foundation, the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region and the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency will also be involved in the project. The planning and design phase is expected to take six months, while construction will take 20 to 24 months. “It will provide easy access to both urban and rural patients,” Wall said. “It will reduce the workload at Regina’s hospitals.” Regina was left with the General and Pasqua hospitals when the Plains closed. They have struggled to keep up with the demands placed on them, Wall said, and other health regions have made better progress on reducing wait times. “The problems we have in Regina are serious problems in terms of more than periodic demand on the facilities.” Moving day surgeries out of the two hospitals to the Plains should open up space in operating rooms, he said. Dwight Nelson, chief executive officer of the health region, said 40,000 outpatient procedures are done each year. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

4-H | 100 YEARS

4-H welcomes youth input Joining forces | Youth advisory committee joins 4-H council board to explore new program opportunities, offer new perspectives ERIN DOWLING





Dying to be thin » CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE Although eating disorders are usually considered a female disease, they also affect males. An estimated 10 percent of diagnosed eating disorders occur in boys and men. The actual figure is probably much higher, the conference was told. It’s considered un-masculine to identify with an eating disorder, so men generally do not talk about it, said sociologist Moss Norman. “It’s undiagnosed medically and I think men are reluctant to come forward for help,” said Norman, who teaches in the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management. “To be concerned about body size, shape and issues related to the body generally is not considered a proper way of being male.” Despite increased public awareness about eating disorders, society still doesn’t handle them well because of a stigma surrounding mental illness, said Merryl Bear, director of the National Eating Disorder Information Centre in Toronto. “There’s a real perception that people who develop eating disorders have brought it on themselves,” Bear said. “It’s seen as their fault, and in fact it’s not. It’s a mental illness that requires support.”

ST. JOHN’S, NL — The 4-H Youth Advisory Committee has joined the Canadian 4-H Council board to ensure input from young adult members. Matthew Tweedy, YAC chair, said that the committee is made up of one member from each provincial 4-H association. One member now sits on the council’s board. “The Canadian 4-H Council Youth Advisory Committee represents youth on national working groups, which help to direct the 4-H program … youth are now able to be actively involved in decisions which will affect the future of 4-H in Canada. “As 4-H reaches its 100th anniversary (2013), we are bringing new perspectives and working on exciting new opportunities for 4-H, which will complement 4-H’s existing offerings and ensure that 4-H is a larger and more well-rounded youth development organization for the next 100 years,” he said at the 4-H council’s annual meeting in St. John’s, NL, May 31-June 2. Rob Black, president of the Canadian 4-H Council, was pleased to add the youth’s perspective. “For me, the telling tale was the

presentation delivered by the YAC members at our AGM and not only hearing the absolutely heartfelt applause by the people there, but also hearing the comments from older delegates saying to them that they (YAC) had changed their minds about the ETF (Embracing the Future) program and they now believe that it’s going to work,” said Black in an interview. Through the ETF initiatives, 4-H has stretched into urban areas where a host of projects help members learn new skills. Some council delegates expressed concern about leading six and 25-year-old members in the same club, but most felt 4-H has something for everyone. Mike Nowosad, chief executive officer of the Canadian 4-H Council, said an expanded age range for 4-H to 25 from 18 years old will enhance both personal and professional development. The goal is to offer alternative program opportunities for the older ages. “(Older youth) don’t want to distance themselves from the organization, and that’s important, because they are our future leaders.… Some of them recognize that they have additional s k i l l s t o l e a r n b e f o re t h e y

become the most effective leaders they can be. “So by developing clubs that are specifically targeting that older age range, 4-H can keep them involved, and help them acquire skills that will help them in their studies, their careers, and their roles as future 4-H leaders. Valerie Pearson, executive director of Saskatchewan 4-H and incoming president of the Canadian 4-H Council, said the experience at 4-H for the older age group is about career development and professional growth. “At 21, they may not have time to roll into leadership positions. But by holding on to them until they’re 25, they will hopefully then be able to move into a leadership role,” she said. About 26,000 Canadian youth are members of 2,000 4-H clubs across the country. They participate in more than 44,000 projects and are helped by 8,000 leaders in the organization. While the top projects involved beef, horses, and dairy activities, 4-Hers learn about a broad range of agricultural skills but also topics ranging from first aid, photography and woodworking to cake decorating, pet grooming and square dancing.

New health centre planned » CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE “Anything that doesn’t require an overnight stay, we want to put on the table in the planning phases and say, ‘does it make sense to keep it in our busy hospitals that are overstressed and pretty tough to park at?’ ” he said. “Or does it make sense to have it in a place that people can navigate around?” Staffing and operating costs have yet to be worked out. Agreements between the health region and private surgical providers are in place until the end of 2013, and Nelson said the new facility won’t be ready by then. Those partnerships will be reevaluated. Wall said all options within the public health care system are on the table as the province works to reach its objective of no one waiting longer than three months for surgery. Health minister Dustin Duncan said the new facility will improve care for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. “For somebody that has a suppressed immune system, it’s probably a good thing to have them not going into a hospital,” he said. Ideally, all outpatient procedures would eventually move to the Plains, but Duncan said it’s too soon to say whether that will happen. Scott Livingstone, CEO of the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency, said patients who make multiple visits to multiple sites over a couple of years of treatment would benefit from going to one place. Ninety percent of cancer patients receive treatment as outpatients, he added. The new facility was announced in the boardroom of the former Plains hospital, which now serves as a Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology facility. Many rural people viewed the decision to close the Plains as a slight against them. The facility was built in the 1970s to serve southern Saskatchewan residents. Wall said the closure was a wrong choice and resulted in a dramatic reduction of training seats. However, those kinds of decisions were made across Canada at the time, he added.


Seniors should be viewed as valued resources BY KAREN MORRISON SASKATOON NEWSROOM

HALIFAX —Sandra Bathgate used to wonder what more could be done to attract a younger crowd when she participated in fundraising mixers in rural Saskatchewan. Today, she understands that the retired crowd is exactly who community leaders like her should be meeting. Bathgate, a board member with Community Futures Mid Sask, talked about dealing with an aging population in rural communities during a workshop at the CF Network of Canada annual conference in Halifax late last month. “When you look at the percentage of your community that’s over (60) and you take out the young ones, it doesn’t leave many left,” said Bathgate. She found that seniors older than 60

make up 35 percent of the population in municipalities near her mixed farming community at Central Butte, Sask. More recently, she has learned how many are struggling with diminished pensions in a poor global economy. Bathgate sees an opportunity to help sagging incomes and provide a casual local workforce. “We’ve not been treating them like a resource,” said Bathgate. “I find you can take their expertise and transfer that information to work on something else,” she said. “We’ve got to give them some credit for what they do know and the value they’ve got.” Parrish Tung, mayor of Elk Point, Alta., said towns like his need to find ways to meet seniors’ specialized needs and keep them in their home communities. He questioned whether small com-

munities have enough funding and resources in place to be successful. “Our Alberta government asks seniors to stay in their own place, but do we have the infrastructure and all those things available for them?” he said. “I wouldn’t give them a failing grade, but I’d say we have to wait and see how well we can accomplish that.” Volunteers in his town often shovel sidewalks and provide rides for seniors to services. “It causes a lot of stress for seniors saying, ‘how I am going to get to Edmonton,’” he said. The area recently lost its Greyhound passenger service, he added. Seniors fared better in Saskatchewan’s Maidstone-Lloydminster region, which is a prosperous oil producing area that offers a wide range of services within a short commute. Steve Tully, a board member with

Tully, who ran a grocery store in Maidstone for 35 years, said the biggest lesson he learned in dealing with

seniors is to include them in planning before forging ahead. “You have to do something for seniors that they want. Just because you did something, if they didn’t want it, they won’t participate.”






Past affects discipline SPEAKING OF LIFE



When my husband was a young boy, he was raised by a strict and often cruel stepfather. His mother did little to protect him from this man and my husband spent most of his early childhood either in tears or in terror. For the most part, my husband has worked through the miseries of his early childhood and I am proud of him for doing so. The problem is that he is so afraid of being cruel to our own children that he seldom disciplines or gives them the guidance they need. What can I do to support my husband and help him?


You and your husband deserve credit for putting his horrific childhood behind you and working together to raise your children. Children need to be both nurtured and disciplined to give them the guidance they need to mature into

reasonable and responsible adults. If not, they may as adults struggle to control their emotions and impulsively move from crisis to crisis. Guidance helps them learn to control their emotions but does not have to be horrific or painful punishment. You do not have to use physical force on your children or scream and shout. A few moments with a timeout in their bedrooms is at least as effective as a spanking. You and your husband might take time to list the various non-violent consequences for your children to help them when they are misbehaving. And don’t forget to play with your children. The more that your husband can romp with them or play hide and seek, the more likely it is that he will build relationships with them. It is the playful parent who can step back when necessary to discipline the kids and let them know when they have crossed the line and are being inappropriate. It is also the parent who has confidence that he would never do anything to deliberately hurt his children. Jacklin Andrews is a family counsellor from Saskatchewan. Contact: jandrews@

Urine can tell a tale HEALTH CLINIC



Gardeners enjoy asparagus each spring so it seems timely to ask if patients complain of odours in urine immediately after eating asparagus? What is happening in the body to make that happen and is it normal for everyone? Is there science on this or anecdotal first person accounts? Also, what makes urine change colour?


French novelist Marcel Proust once said asparagus “transforms my chamber pot into a flask of perfume.� One theory is that about 40 percent of the population has a gene that enables them to break down the chemical compounds in asparagus a certain way. The result is a sulphur containing compound that smells funny but goes away in a day or two. Another possibility is that about a quarter of people have another gene that enables them to smell the odd odour, while the rest of us cannot detect it. Onions and garlic may also send their smell into the urine. There are some illnesses that can make the urine smell different and in the days before blood tests, this was one way doctors could make a diagnosis.

Diabetics whose blood sugar is out of control may have ketones in the urine, which give it the characteristic acetone or nail polish remover odour. Normal urine ranges in colour from a pale yellow to a deeper orange-yellow or amber. The yellow colour comes from a pigment called urochrome and the depth of the colour varies with how diluted or concentrated the urine is. A person who is dehydrated will have much darker coloured urine than someone who has recently drank large quantities of water or beer. Colour pigments and chemicals found in certain food and medications may also change the urine colour. Beets, berries and fava beans are among the food most likely to affect urine colour. Many over-the-counter and prescription medications may give urine brighter tones varying from raspberry red to lemon yellow and orange. Multivitamin tablets are among the more common culprits. A cloudy urine colour is the most common sign of a urinary tract infection, in addition to obvious bright red blood. Deep purple urine is an identifying characteristic of porphyria, a rare, inherited disorder of red blood cells. Mary, Queen of Scots had this inherited disease and passed it to her son, King James I. George III’s untreated porphyria is believed to have led to his decline into insanity. Clare Rowson is a retired medical doctor in Belleville, Ont. Contact:

VIRDEN, Man. — Driving into the yard at the Chapman farm for the first time is a bit confusing. At two in the afternoon, six pick-up trucks were parked next to a machine shop and five white tractor-trailers were scattered about the farmyard south of Virden, Man. The scene resembled the home base for a small trucking company. Yet, after driving further into the yard and seeing nine tractors, a feedlot, grain bins and a storage shed filled with hay bales, it became clear that this enterprise is a farm, albeit not a traditional one. The owners of Chapman Bros. Farms Ltd. — Darren Chapman, his brother, Parry; cousin, Rob Chapman and his brother-in-law Jeff Elliott — are really partners in a business venture. “It’s not the typical family farm. It comes from a family farm background. We’ve just evolved,” said Parry, who with Darren and Rob took over the farm from the previous generation, brothers George and Russell Chapman. “I’d call it more of a family run business.” These days, the four partners in Chapman Bros. operate a farm business with more than 17,000 acres: 12,000 dedicated to canola, wheat, barley and soybeans and the remainder used for hay production and pasture. In addition, they run a 500 head cow-calf operation and export hay to Florida, Texas and Wisconsin. To do all that, they employ two fulltime staff and hire seasonal workers from spring to fall. In recognition of the scope and complexity of the operation, the Red River Exhibition honoured Chapman Bros. in 2010 as the Farm Fam-

ily of the Year. While Chapman Bros. may not be a typical family farm, Darren said it also isn’t a corporate farm. “It is all family involved. It would be a different story if it was one company that owned all the land and they hired one person to manage it.” The diversity of the operation means the Chapmans have enough work year round to retain highly experienced full-time employees. For instance, Len Skelton, the farm’s first employee, has worked on the farm for nearly 40 years. Keeping skilled employees around has helped the Chapmans build up their business. “One of the limiting factors going forward, for any farm ... is the ability to retain employees,” Parry said as he reclined in a 30-year-old desk chair in a rustic office inside the machine shed, decorated with faux wood panelling, a few dozen repair manuals stacked on a shelf and a chalkboard with notes on scheduled farm tasks. “We’ve come to the realization you can’t do everything yourself.” In that spirit, the family members and business partners have also realized they’re better off working together rather than running smaller farms on their own. By pooling their capital, the partners are able to take advantage of economies of scale. They also benefit from having four brains evaluate an idea rather than one.

“You see it with neighbours who farm by themselves,” said Darren, while sitting inside a more modern office on the other side of the machine shed. “They don’t have an opportunity to bounce ideas off somebody. We get the odd phone call from them, just looking for advice.” As well, Elliott said the diverse knowledge of the four partners and their employees means that almost any on-farm issue can be resolved in-house. “There’s always somebody here that can solve any problem.” The partners’ ability to get along and take care of business was clearly evident by the tone of activity on the farm. Parry was filling a sprayer with liquid fertilizer, Rob was spraying crops, Darren was managing an outgoing load of forage and employees were working at numerous tasks, but the pace was calm rather than chaotic. Four family members running a business may have its advantages, but there are also risks. Four partners mean there can be four different opinions on how to best manage the farm. The Chapmans steer clear of that pothole by specializing in certain aspects of the business. Darren runs the forage exports, Parry markets the crops, Rob handles spraying and harvesting and Elliott is responsible for the cattle. However, it’s impossible to completely avoid conflict on certain decisions, so the partners vote when necessary and try not to hold a grudge if they’re on the losing side. “It’s been pretty good. Some people have started off farming together and then can’t get along,” Darren said. “(You’ve got) to accept the overall decision in the end. You’ve got to see it from three or four different ways.”

RADISH GARNISHES With their contrasting red skin, white flesh and crisp texture, radishes can be sculptured and curled into interesting shapes to be used as garnishes. Once the cutting and shaping have been completed, immerse the radish in ice water in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours. This will crisp the flesh to hold the shape. • Curls — Using a vegetable peeler, slice off a thin, narrow strip, as long as possible from around the outside of a radish. Once one strip has been removed, include some of the white flesh along with the red peel for contrast. Roll the strips up as tightly as possible and secure with a toothpick and immerse in ice water. • Fans — Cut the top and bottom off of the radish. Set the radish on the flat bottom on a cutting board. Using a sharp paring knife, cut parallel 1/8 inch (.25 cm) thick crosswise slices about threequarters of the way into the radish. Be careful not to cut all the way through the radish. Place in ice water and chill for several hours or until radish fans out. Remove and drain well. • Roses — Cut off top and bottom tip of radish with paring knife. Set radish upright on a cutting board. Cut a thin vertical slice down one side of radish with a fine, sharp paring knife. Cut about threequarters of the way into the radish. Turn the radish slightly away from you and make another slice, continue around the radish

RADISH VARIETIES • Red Globe – is the most familiar radish, with a solid, crisp white flesh and red peel. It is small, round or oval shaped ranging in size from two to eight cm • Black Radish – this turnip shaped and sized radish has a dull black or dark brown skin. The flesh is white, pungent and drier than other radishes. • Daikons – native to Asia, this radish is a large carrot-shape up to 46 cm long and weighing one to two pounds. The flesh is white and juicy and hotter than a Red Globe radish. They are most flavourful in fall and winter. • White Icicle – has a long tapered root about 15 cm in length. The white flesh is milder than the Red Globe variety. • California Mammoth White – larger than the white icicle, the oblongshaped roots are 20 cm long with a slightly pungent flesh. Adapted from

Making cheese labour of love for sheep producers Old-world techniques | Couple sells their artisan cheese in Alberta stores, restaurants and at farmers’ markets BY SUSAN HODGES FREELANCE WRITER

KITSCOTY, Alta. — For Rhonda (Zuk) Headon, travelling to Italy for her 30th birthday was life changing. The 2007 trip introduced her to the art and love of cheese making. However, making old-world style artisan cheese was not for everyone, as Headon found out. It’s hard work and a full-time job not only to sell the cheese but to educate people about sheep’s cheese. “When we first started, we wanted to use dairy cattle. However, the cost

of quota for milking your own cows for cheese is cost prohibitive. We didn’t want to just buy milk to make the cheese either as then you lose your control over your milk. “We wanted our animals grass fed and we wanted to have organic milk products. Buying our milk just didn’t give us the control that we wanted,” said Headon. She and her husband, Brian, of Kitscoty, Alta., then looked into using sheep’s milk. “Foodie people already understand the benefits of sheep cheese as it is truly a nutritious product,” said

Headon, who noted it has two times the nutritional value in protein, vitamins and minerals of cow’s milk and is high in vitamin E, omega fats and beta carotene. They now have about 125 Friesian cross dairy sheep and have plans to eventually increase their herd to 200. “Once we had the farm set up for making sheep cheese, we also had to start marketing, which is also difficult to do,” said Headon, whose products are sold in stores in Calgary, Edmonton and Lloydminster. They have also sold to restaurants, but those are not stable markets

because of changing menus, she said. The cheese must go through inspection before it can be sold in grocery stores. Brian milks the sheep and the unpasteurized milk is then aged for at least two months. The cheese is produced over summer when the sheep can feed on grass. It is aged over the winter. Headon, the cheese maker, presses the curd into the moulds, rotates the cheese and washes the cheese after it soaks in a brine solution. She produces Pecorino, Fresco, Cambert, La Bianca, Feta and Rustico cheese.

Jay Adams of Alberta Agriculture said there are about five sheep and goat cheese and two cattle dairy cheese manufacturers in Alberta. A problem they all face is finding markets. “Producers I have talked with say they love making cheese but it is just too much work to market the cheese. Having to take their product to farmers’ markets is very labour intensive,” she said. For Headon, the work remains satisfying. “As a cheese maker, you develop and grow and I find that exciting.”

NEWS AG NOTES GROWING RURAL COMMUNITIES Canada’s Farmers Grow Communities is a new program by Monsanto that provides a chance for farmers to secure a $2,500 grant for their favourite community charity or not-for-profit organization. From June 1 to Sept. 30, farmers across Canada can nominate a local charity or not-for-profit group in their community by visiting www. Two $2,500 grants will be awarded in each of 29 different territories across the grain growing regions of northeastern British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. Farmers must be 19 years or older and actively farming a combination of corn, soybeans and/or canola on at least 160 acres in Western Canada, or a combination of corn or soybeans on at least 80 acres in Eastern Canada. An additional feature allows other non-farming residents living within rural communities to go online and make suggestions of worthy groups or projects for a farmer to consider using their Canada’s Farmers Grow Communities application. Winners will be notified by Nov. 15. ALBERTA WINERY WINS MEDALS Field Stone Fruit Wines was recently awarded 10 medals from two wine competitions.

CFIA investigative powers to grow under new food bill

Location, not number key to managing people BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Catching ‘rotten apples’ | Second reading expected before summer break BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

One of the goals of the federal government’s proposed food safety legislation will be to rein in “rotten apples� willing to cut corners for profit, says the bill’s Senate sponsor. Manitoba Conservative senator Don Plett opened debate on Bill S-11 last week with the assertion that Canadian farmers and food producers generally play by food safety rules because it is in their interests. “All that said, we have to acknowledge that there may be some rotten apples. It is not beyond the realm of possibility that the odd person can be less than scrupulous,� he said. “There may be a willingness to cut corners for extra profit even if it puts their customers at potential risk. I suspect these cases arise partly because some people believe they can break the law undetected or with few negative consequences.� Plett said the new bill will give the Canadian Food Inspection Agency more powers to investigate and prosecute and make fines for deliberate violations of food safety rules much harsher.

“I do not expect that the CFIA would have cause to draw on these enforcement tools very often, but when such isolated incidents occur, the agency needs the tools to be able to act quickly.� Plett’s office said he expects second reading (in principle) approval of the bill will occur this week before Parliament rises for the summer. Committee hearings for detailed study and witness testimony will follow. Plett said the bill is aimed at upgrading and modernizing the CFIA legislative base by combining four food inspection laws into one, giving inspectors more investigative powers and aligning Canada’s food safety rules with major trading partners, including the United States. It also strengthens Canada’s policing of the $28 billion worth of food imported each year into Canada. Plett said there are flaws in the inspection of imported food, despite CFIA officials’ assurances at House of Commons agriculture committee meetings that imports are inspected and dealt with as rigorously as are domestic products. Plett said existing rules do not allow rigorous control over the quality or

safety of imported food. The new regime will allow the CFIA to license importers and hold them responsible for the quality of their imports, including tracing them to source. “As it stands now, we can only prohibit the sale of imported products that pose a risk once they are in Canada,� he said. “There are no existing provisions to prevent those unsafe products from entering our country in the first place. What is more, when an importer is breaking the law, our enforcement measures are not as stringent as they could be.� He said the new legislation, expected to receive Liberal opposition support in the Senate, will strengthen safety precautions with imported food. Last week, Ontario Federation of Agriculture president Mark Wales endorsed the new federal legislation as an improvement. He said stronger controls on imported food are important. “Leveling the playing field for imports has been a long-standing issue for OFA members,� he said in a statement. “New import controls will include the power to prohibit the importation of unsafe food commodities.

S o c i o l o g i s t Su s a n Mc D a n i e l doesn’t necessarily see gloom and doom in a world population of seven billion people, which was reached last November. The Canada research chair in global population, based at the University of Lethbridge, receives many photos of crowded cities and beaches, but she says they represent distribution and migration issues rather than overcrowding. “Not all people are problems, so the exact ratio of people to problems is not entirely clear in any realm,â€? McDaniel told a June 14 meeting of the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs. Although the world’s overall population is growing, she said birth rates are declining all over the world, even in sub-Saharan Africa. “The entire world is aging, in demographic terms,â€? she said. McDaniel sees five main challenges linked to population: • Increasing concentrations of people — Young, mobile people migrate to cities all over the world, creating challenges in housing and also affecting the situations of those they leave behind. • Consumption by the affluent — McDaniel said Canadians are

among the largest consumers of natural resources in the world. • Inadequate distribution of resources — Food is plentiful in North America, where much is wasted. At the same time, people in many other countries are starving, without access to adequate food. • Lack of enabling contexts — Many people lack health care, education and other necessities that allow them to live longer and more productive lives. • Lack of political will to address climate change. McDaniel said the total number of the world’s population is probably less crucial than its distribution. As well, there is a demographic bonus for countries when they reach the point where the age of the potential workforce reaches its peak as a percentage of the total. China is in that bonus situation now, said McDaniel. Canada reached it in 2008. She said earlier predictions of population overload have failed to materialize, and efforts to control numbers have generally involved an “us versus themâ€? approach that is inherently unfair. McDaniel was critical of Canada’s declining foreign aid, adding that the country has relinquished its obligations to help others.

Spotting skink a rare thrill Endangered species | The lizard dines on crickets and grasshoppers BY BILL STILWELL FREELANCE WRITER

NEEPAWA, Man. — The Northern Prairie Skink is a rarity on the Prairies. Its ability to escape predators by shedding its tail and regrowing it later is the stuff of fairy tales, yet the small reptile has been seldom studied. Now a Skink Monitoring Project is underway in southwestern Manitoba. It is being carried out by volunteer Devon Baete on behalf of the Manitoba Habitat Heritage Corp. For the past two summers, Baete has talked to landowners who have skinks on their property. He places small pieces of plywood on the ground, which skinks crawl under during the heat of the day.

He goes back and records skink sightings. Last summer he documented 30. The skink is Manitoba’s only true lizard. It is endangered and found only in the sandy regions of southwestern Manitoba, with the largest concentrations located between MacGregor and Shilo. It is a smooth, shiny, olive green lizard with dark stripes. Adults range in length from 127 to 204 millimetres. Sigried Johnson lives on a Glenboro area farm. Sightings of skinks are rare, she said, and when people do spot them, it is usually brief. “Last summer, I saw one in my tomato plants down in the garden,” Johnson said. “It is very hard to catch a glimpse of one as they move at a

heck of a rate. They take you by surprise and then are gone.” Like many landowners, she enjoys having them around because they do no harm and she enjoys seeing them. Her neighbour agrees. “Skinks are good things. They like eating crickets and grasshoppers,” said Rosalie Sigurdson. “There’s no problem having them around.” Sigurdson noted she most often finds skinks in openings along the south facing side of hills on their property. Recently, the Sigurdsons and Johnsons took an extra step and permanently protected their farms’ sandhill habitat with a Conservation Agreement to ensure the skinks’ future well being.

AdFarm founder recognized for promotion of agriculture The marketing firm CEO enhanced the perception of agriculture in the media and urban general public BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Kim McConnell, founder and former chief executive officer of one of North American’s largest agricultural marketing firms, will be inducted into the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame this year. The well-known former leader of AdFarm will join two other 2012 recipients, Western Producer journalist Barry Wilson and cattle breeder Bertrand Boisclair, as this year’s inductees. McConnell founded one of Canada’s first marketing and communications agencies dedicated to agriculture and agri-business. It now has offices in Calgary, Guelph, Kansas City, St. Louis, Fargo and Sacramento. He turned over AdFarm operations to new management in 2007 and continues to act as an adviser. He is also a director with various companies and organizations. During his career, he has been named Canadian agri-marketer of the year and entrepreneur of the year and served on the Estey commission during formation of a report on grain handling and transportation. McConnell acted as interim CEO during the formation of Canada Beef and serves as a director on the Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency.


He is vice-chair of the Canadian 4-H Foundation and holds several other positions with agriculturally related organizations. In its news release announcing this year’s recipients, the hall of fame noted McConnell’s contributions to agriculture. “Kim was one of the first to recognize that agriculture must evolve to meet the consumer and communication challenges (and opportunities) resulting from the arrival of new media and information-sharing technologies,” it said. “A key passion for Kim is to be a catalyst for agriculture, to enhance the perception of agriculture with stakeholders, media and the general public, in particular, urban consumers. In this regard he has been, and still is, an industry pioneer.” Induction ceremonies will take place Nov. 4 in Toronto.

Increasing land prices trigger interest in field drainage systems BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Then and now: industry steadily improving Doing more with less | U.S. hog industry proud of accomplishments over five decades of research, innovation BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

DES MOINES, Iowa — The hog industry’s relentless focus on efficiency since 1959 has allowed it to nearly double U.S. pork production while increasing its carbon footprint only 23 percent. Each pound of pork that is produced

now results in 35 percent less carbon to be emitted, consumes 33 percent less feed, requires 78 percent less land and uses 41 percent less water. “This feat is truly remarkable,” said researcher Garth Boyd, who studied the change in hog production between 1959 and 2009 in a study for the U.S. National Pork Board. “Today, it simply takes far fewer

resources to produce a bushel of grain or a pound of pork than it did 50 years ago.” The study did not examine Canadian pork production efficiencies, but the Canadian industry has been even more aggressive in increasing productivity than the U.S. industry. The study involved an extensive lifecycle analysis of every element of

pork production, including fertilizer and other inputs used in feedgrain production, energy used throughout the feedgrain and livestock production cycle and piglet and market hog production per sow. National pork production increased from 12.1 billion pounds in 1959 to 22.8 billion lb. in 2009. Sow productivity is one of the most notable gains. U.S. pork production has almost doubled, even though the sow herd has dropped 39 percent. An average sow produced only 9.95 piglets per year in 1978, but by 2009 an average sow produced 9.97 piglets per litter, with more than two litters per year. The combination of bounding yield gains in corn and the much-improved feed conversion of pigs resulted in a steep drop in the amount of land required to produce pork. The amount of American farmland re q u i re d t o p ro d u c e p o rk ha s dropped by 59 percent since 1959 because it now takes 78 percent less land to produce each pound of pork. “The U.S. hog industry produces pigs far more efficiently than we did in 1959,” said Boyd.

Compared to 50 years ago, the hog industry has reduced water use by

After years of coping with drowned out crops, farmers in Manitoba and North Dakota are investing in drainage tile to manage the water on their land. However, another factor is also propelling the tile installation boom: skyrocketing land prices and the lack of available land in the Red River Valley. “Instead of going out and purchasing land, we decided to improve what we already have. We decided it’s cheaper to try and improve it,” said Scott Gauslow, a soybean grower near Colfax, North Dakota, who tiled a quarter section of his cropland last fall. The story is similar north of the border, said Chris Unrau, owner of Precision Land Solutions, a tile drainage company in Winkler, Man. “Somehow or another, they need to get more out of their farm,” said Unrau, who this month opened a new business in Winkler that will manufacture HDPE tubing, the plastic pipe commonly known as drainage tile. Unrau had primarily placed the perforated pipe under high value potato land in Manitoba. But nowadays, there is also growing demand from oilseed and corn producers. “The whole thing in Manitoba has been driven by potatoes, but it is starting to transition,” he said. “We’ve got some guys who are on a program of tiling 40, 80 or 160 acres per year…. Guys are seeing they can get that 20 to 25 percent yield boost by tiling land.” With land prices increasing by 10 to 20 percent a year in North Dakota, Gauslow decided it was more economical to invest in his existing land base rather than expand. Tiling typically costs $400 to $700 an acre, which is substantially cheaper than buying an acre of land in North Dakota’s Red River Valley. “There is land that was selling 10 years ago for $2,000 (an acre). Now it’s over $5,000,” said Gauslow, vicepresident of the North Dakota Soybean Council. Demand for tile and companies that install the perforated pipe is outstripping supply. Gauslow had to book a contractor a year in advance to get tile under a quarter section of his land last fall. Since then, new contractors and pipe manufacturers have entered the business to satisfy demand in the state. Gauslow plans to install more tile because he’s already seeing the benefits from his first 160 acres. A couple of storms dumped 50 millimetres of rain on his farm this spring, and the tiled cropland is managing the water more effectively. “There’s no doubt about it, we see an advantage to it,” he said. “It allows the water to be absorbed a bit faster. It lowers the water table.” It’s mostly producers with clay soil in the Red River Valley who are installing tile in North Dakota. However, most of the tile in Manitoba is going under lighter soil and potato land outside of the valley. “I have a map of all the land that we’ve tiled and it’s pretty much a straight line, all along the western edge of the Red River Valley,” said Unrau.





WESTERN CANADIAN CHICKEN IS GOOD FOR ALL OF US! 6,643 jobs $795M GDP $160M tax contribution 5,672 jobs $830M GDP $168M tax contribution 2,521 jobs $348M GDP $70M tax contribution 3,004 jobs $301M GDP $61M tax contribution

Buying Canadian chicken is good for all of us. It supports jobs, supports farmers, and supports local, provincial and national economies. This is particularly true within the Canadian chicken industry.

Canadians have repeatedly said they want Canadian-produced chicken and support Canadian chicken farmers. In numerous surveys over the years, Canadians agree we should produce enough Canadian food to satisfy our needs; that food produced in Canada is a lot or somewhat better than food produced elsewhere; and that they trust Canadian farmers. Canadians also feel it is important to preserve strong farming communities in Canada.

A Global Leader

Supply management ensures farmers receive a fair price for their product, but the price paid at your local grocery store or restaurant is not set by the farmer. Retailers make that decision, taking into account their own bottom line. This disconnect between farm and retail prices is evidenced in countries where industries have been deregulated. In those cases, farmers’ incomes have dropped substantially, while consumer prices have not followed suit.2

Supply Management – Truly Canadian

Canadian grown chicken meets demanding standards that are the envy of many in the world. These include: • A total ban on hormone use for over 40 years; • Animal welfare standards that are among the strictest in the world; • On-Farm Food Safety and Biosecurity protocols that put the safety of the consumer first.

Supply management is a uniquely Canadian approach to agricultural production that benefits Canadian farmers, processors, and consumers. Farmers receive a fair return for their product, processors receive a reliable supply of product, and Canadians are provided with a consistent choice of excellent, high-quality products at reasonable prices – all without government subsidies.

With such an overwhelming success story, it’s no wonder that chicken has been the #1 consumed meat in Canada for over 10 years!

The United States and European Union subsidize their farmers with billions of dollars. On the flipside, Canadian chicken farmers receive 100% of their revenue from the marketplace, not from governments or taxpayers.

Thank you, Canada!

Our dynamic supply management system has, for more than 40 years, enabled generations of farmers to make a sizeable economic contribution to the nation, while meeting dramatically evolving consumer demand for highquality products. The Canadian chicken industry (farming and processing) sustains over 55,000 direct and indirect jobs, contributes approximately $6.5 billion dollars to the Canadian GDP, and contributes over $1.3 billion in tax revenues at federal, provincial and municipal levels1.

Good Chicken…Great Business

We thank our provincial and federal governments for their ongoing support of supply management. As recently as the 2011 Speech from the Throne, our government has reaffirmed its commitment to supply management because it works for farmers, processors, and, most importantly – consumers. We are tremendously proud of the growth and popularity of Canadian chicken products. Our system gives us the flexibility we need to continue responding to the evolving needs of the marketplace, as we have for generations.

Plant ‘perfume’ draws microbes Attracts beneficial bacteria | Healthy roots could reduce the need for chemicals BY MARGARET EVANS FREELANCE WRITER

©2012 CNH America LLC. All rights reserved. Case IH is a registered trademark of CNH America LLC.

LINDELL BEACH, B.C. — Research has shown for the first time that corn can attract beneficial bacteria to their root environment, basically through the power of perfume. Scientists have discovered that one of a variety of chemicals put out by corn roots produces aromatic toxins to attract a certain competitive bacteria to the root system. The bacteria helps detoxify the soil, competes with harmful compounds in the root system and stimulates the availability of growth-enhancing iron and phosphorus. A n d re w Ne a l o f R o t h a m s t e d Research, who co-led the study, said the research into these root chemicals called benzoxazinoids (BXs) could have significant on-farm repercussions. “Ensuring that roots of crops form strong relationships with beneficial soil bacteria could indeed reduce the need for regular chemical applications, and because treating roots is difficult in the field, (the research re s u l t s ) m a y p rov i d e a b e t t e r approach to promoting root health.” The BXs appear to stimulate genes that control the movement of bacterial cells by what researchers call chemotaxis, or movement in response to a chemical. The study was published in April in the open access journal PLoS One

and was conducted by researchers at Rothamsted Research in Hertfordshire, United Kingdom, and the University of Sheffield’s animal and plant sciences department. Neal said the chemicals given off by the BXs are able to attract one particular soil bacterium, called Psudomonas putida. It moves toward the plant to locate the roots. BX chemicals, once released by the roots into the soil, break down quickly with a half-life of less than 24 hours. The P. putida increases that breakdown process, using the BX molecules as an energy source. By taking advantage of the energyrich niche in the root ecosystem, the bacteria can exploit a beneficial environment unavailable to bacteria that aren’t able to detoxify BX. It is a symbiotic relationship. Corn produces BXs as a chemical defence, and the P. putida bacterium has evolved a system that allows it to locate roots by cueing on the BX chemical. There are advantages to both the plant and the bacteria, and researchers are exploring the soil ecosystem to see how the bacterial behaviour can be managed to improve crop health and production yield. “BXs contain nitrogen, and so P. putida may exploit the compound as an N source,” Neal said. However, there is an emerging threat to this co-operative soil-based community. Commercial grass crops

are losing the ability to produce BXs, which puts their root ecosystems at risk. “BX production is common in the grasses, but many of the elite cereals that are now grown intensively have lost the capacity to produce BXs,” said Neal. “ This has happened because the varieties now in use were selected specifically because of an increased yield, a good thing in itself, but other positive attributes were lost, or lessened. So, there are some wheat varieties that produce BXs, but we are not sure whether the BXs are exuded from their roots, and anyway they are not widely grown. “Of the agricultural crops, BXs are only found in grasses (like) wheat and (corn).” Ongoing research is focusing on how to enhance the ability of BX chemicals to aid in the fight against soil-borne pests. Neal said they know that bacteria such as P. putida significantly influence plant growth. They can compete for space on the root surface with plant pathogens and produce antibiotics, which are certain to improve plant health. As well, the stimulation of essential nutrients such as iron and phosphorus also helps plants grow substantially. The long-range aim of the research is to reintroduce the appropriate genes from ancestral wheat and corn varieties into elite crop varieties that are intensively cultivated.

SOUTHWEST Showers, rain and storms have dumped 50 to 100 millimetres of rain on the region since the beginning of June. Heat is needed to dry land and aid crop development. Producers have been applying fungicides to winter wheat. Blackleg is a concern and some growers are adding a fungicide to their herbicide application. Pastures and hayland look good. First cut of alfalfa is underway or nearly underway in the region.

Spring wheat breaks through the soil in a field near Killarney, Man. |


Winter wheat is headed out, and most growers have completed spraying for fusarium head blight. Cereal crops are rated as good. Producers have reported wheat streak mosaic, barley yellow dwarf, tan spot and powdery mildew in cereal crops. Canola seeded in early April is starting to flower. The potato crop is progressing well. Recent rain has increased the risk of late blight development. Quality of first cut alfalfa is good with yields ranging from 1.25 to 1.5 tonnes per acre. NORTHWEST

DuPont Vertisan


Persistent rain showers have delayed herbicide treatment, but producers have now sprayed most of the canola and wheat. Heavy rainfalls in the Swan Valley area and around Roblin have caused water ponding. Flea beetles have pressured crops near Roblin, and thousands of acres have been treated. Hay crops and pastures are rated as good to very good. EASTERN Isolated showers and rain have soaked some fields in the region. Some crops are suffering from excess moisture stress. Cutworms have pressured sunflower, corn and canola crops. Sunflower stands are below average because of cutworms. Soybeans have reached the second trifoliate stage. The corn crop could use warmer temperatures to bolster growth. Hay and pastureland is rated as fair to good.

Heavy rains of 75 to 100 mm in June have damaged some crops in the region. Risk of fusarium head blight is high. Most winter wheat growers have sprayed for fusarium. Early planted flax is now eight inches high. No major insect problems or disease issues have been reported for flax. Hay crops are progressing nicely. Newer stands are in excellent condition.

SASKATCHEWAN Seeding is almost complete in Saskatchewan, although rain continues to hamper those trying to finish up. As of June 11, Saskatchewan Agriculture reported 96 percent of the crop was in the ground. The five year average is 90 percent. Most crops are at normal stages of development, but warm weather is needed now to move them along. Excess moisture, disease and insects are starting to have impacts. SOUTH Farmers are doing better than last year, when flooding prevented many from turning a wheel. In the east, 94 percent is seeded while the west reports 97 percent complete. Some in the southeast had only seeded 17 percent last year at this time. Rain slowed seeding and spraying.

NEWS The Maryfield area received 76 mm of rain last week, while Ponteix saw 97 mm. Some localized flooding was reported in the Grenfell area. Cereal development is generally ahead of normal, while most oilseeds and pulses are at normal development stages. Conditions are good to excellent. Flooding, wind and insects caused the most crop damage. Flea beetles and cutworms are still causing significant damage in some places. The Cadillac area has received 345 mm of precipitation since April 1 and experienced severe hail damage. Some reseeding was planned depending on weather conditions. CENTRAL Seeding is now 92 percent complete in the east and 98 percent in the west. Large amounts of rain continue to hamper seeding and weed control. Some producers in eastern regions have decided not to seed flooded acres and will concentrate on spraying instead. The Kamsack area received 104 mm as of June 11 and the Biggar area saw 111 mm, followed closely by Sonningdale at 110 mm. About one-third of the cropland topsoil moisture is considered surplus throughout the region, but pockets report nearly two-thirds surplus. Crop development is normal, although heavy rain has delayed emergence of some late-seeded crops and many fields have uneven de velopment. Cond itions are good to excellent. Damage was due mainly to flooding. This region needs warm weather to dry fields and allow producers into fields for weed and pest control.

Grass and hay are also growing well and keeping ahead of cattle. A tremendous amount of dandelions in the hay crops are reducing the yield. NORTH Near Clyde, growing conditions are the best they’ve been for five years. A combination of rain and heat are causing rapid growth of crops and weeds. If the rain continues, farmers will become concerned about weedy crops stealing yields, but until then the rain is benefiting more than harming. Some cutworms have been seen but no real damage reported. Near Galahad, showers have started to slow operations. More than an inch of rain in 24 hours has stopped spraying. Some cutworm damage spotted across the region in isolated fields.


ALBERTA PEACE Seeding in the area is nearly complete. Heavy rain in some areas has ended hopes of all the crops being seeded. Emerged crops look good. Peas are at the four- to six-node stage and spraying nears completion on peas. Canola ranges from the cotyledon to six-leaf stage and farmers are trying to spray between showers. Cereal crops are looking good, but farmers are hoping for a few days of dry weather to finish spraying. Near Rycroft, barley crops are starting to yellow because of the excess moisture on the heavy, clay soils. Producers are advised not to spray to reduce plant stress. Winter wheat crops are growing well.

Showers almost daily have hampered farmer attempts to spray fields. Spraying is estimated to be about 60 percent complete. There is some cutworm, flea beetle and diamondback moth damage, but it’s difficult to get a good assessment because of muddy fields. Canola crops range from cotyledon to bolting. Exceptional wheat fields exist in many areas of the region. Hay and pasture crops are growing very well. SOUTH Haying has begun in some parts, but rain is slowing progress.

NORTH Farmers in the north have virtually finished seeding with 97 percent in the west and 98 percent in the east reporting completion. The greatest amounts of rainfall recorded June 4-11 were 120 mm at Arborfield and 111 mm at Radisson. Many areas reported more than 25 mm. Much of the east has surplus moisture while the drier areas in the west report five percent surplus and 95 percent adequate for cropland. Crops are developing nicely and at normal rates, although flooding and flea beetles are causing damage. Most of the northern crop is rated in good to excellent condition. Farmers are wishing for warm weather to move things along. Spraying is more than half done in some areas, but rain is delaying those operations as well.

Group eager to see bison on marginal land Official mammal designation sought | Poor land is being cropped to take advantage of income programs BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

PELICAN RAPIDS, Minnesota — A hawk hovers high over spring grass blowing in a warm wind while other birds and bugs cry out in an unplanned symphony of nature. Down below, a steady bovine stomping and grunting provides a heavy undertone to this western Minnesota pasture. “I just never get over the beauty of them,” said bison producer Dale Rengstorf as a herd of his cows, calves and yearlings moves up a hillside, feasting on fresh grass. Rengstorf has time to enjoy the natural beauty of bison now that the industry has recovered from bad times a decade ago. The downturn saw many producers driven out of the industry, packers go into bankruptcy protection and everyone lose a lot of money. Nowadays there’s good money in both bison meat and hides, the producer base is solid and only growing slowly, and markets have matured. U.S. bison producers are happy to re-emerge into public light, something they might experience more

Pelican Rapids, Minnesota, bison producer Dale Rengstorf hopes the bison will soon be named the U.S.’s official national mammal. | ED WHITE PHOTO often in the future if they win their bid to get the bison named as the official mammal of the United States. “There’s never been a national mammal,” said Rengstorf. “It should be set apart as something special.” A bevy of U.S. politicians have supported the U.S. National Bison Asso-

ciation’s campaign to get bison recognized, highlighting the creature’s broad appeal to Americans. Rengstorf is pleased to see farmers able to make money raising a form of livestock that is naturally adapted to prairie conditions. “When I see marginal land that’s

getting cropped just so people can farm the programs, and I see a chance to put a natural animal on it to produce a healthy meat, I think we should do it,” said Rengstorf. Much of the land on which Rengstorf’s bison are roaming today was once enrolled in the U.S. land set-

aside program, which paid farmers to keep land out of production. The immediate area is a giant, sprawling mountain of glacial gravel covered by only a few inches of light soil, so it is vulnerable to erosion. Some local farmers plow and crop the local land, even though it yields poorly. However, programs can provide a steady stream of income, considering that crop insurance levels are based on countrywide averages. Rengstorf finds the land perfect for bison, and his bison are a perfect fit for the owner of the some of the land: a foreign gravel company. Rengstorf has rented 900 acres of land from the gravel company, which uses only a tiny fraction of the area for aggregate extraction. It gives him pasture and the company a small income from otherwise marginal land. The gravel company cannot enroll the land in the land set-aside program because it is foreign. The land supports about one cowcalf pair per four acres. “I don’t intend to ever plow any of this down,” said Rengstorf, who has 2,500 acres in the local area and more land elsewhere.


Field trial to study insecticide effects on bees BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

A University of Guelph scientist will try to answer a question this summer that is perplexing entomologists in Europe and North America : are canola seeds treated with insecticide killing bees? Cynthia Scott-Dupree, a professor in the university’s School of Environmental Sciences, will release bees onto a blooming canola field near Guelph to determine if coating seeds with clothianidin, a Bayer Crop Science insecticide, harms bees’ health. Beekeepers and environmentalists have claimed that clothianidin, a neonicotinoid insecticide, kills bees. In March, U.S. beekeeper associations and environmental groups filed a petition, with 1.25 million signatures, asking the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to ban clothianidin. Field trials with pollinators are tricky because it’s difficult to control how and where bees gather nectar and pollen. However, Scott-Dupree said her study will follow strict protocols because representatives of the EPA and the Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency have reviewed the experimental methodology. “I would say this particular study (is being) done under GLP (Good Laboratory Practice)…. Every step is independently quality assured by quality assurance officers,” she said. “This level of science should be beyond scrutiny because it’s (being) checked at every level, comprehensively.” Getting the study right became

more significant in early June after France banned Cruiser OSR, a Syngenta insecticide and fungicide seed treatment for canola. The decision was based primarily on a French study released this spring that showed exposure to thiamethoxam, the insecticide in Cruiser, interfered with the bees’ navigational and homing systems. In short, bees exposed to a low dose of the chemical couldn’t find their way back to the hive. The French ban wasn’t a shock because studies published over the last two years have demonstrated that neonicotinoids can hamper bee reproduction, navigation and cause death, said Peter Kevan, a U of G ecology professor and entomologist. “I believe that the neonicotinoids have been implicated in enough situations in Europe, the U.S.A. and now in Canada that they need to be evaluated as to the risk they pose to pollination, pollinators and beekeeping,” said Kevan, who heads up a Canadian research network on pollinators called Canpolin. Neonicotinoid seed treatments are particularly concerning because the chemicals are systemic, meaning

they invade plant tissue and contaminate the pollen and nectar of plant flowers in small quantities. Jonathan Lundgren, a U.S. Department of Agriculture entomologist in Brookings, South Dakota, said it’s hard to assess how the French ban will affect seed treatment policies in North America. However, he said more research is needed to determine if seed treatm e nt s a re ha r m i n g be n e f i c i a l insects. “Seed treatments have come on very quickly, and they’ve been adopted very quickly by farmers in North America,” he said. “There is not a lot of information out there, independent research, on the idea of how these insecticidal seed treatments are affecting non-target species.” Scott-Dupree said her field study, which is funded by Bayer, won’t evaluate neonicotinoids’ impact on individual bee activities, such as flight and navigation. Rather, she wants to understand how feeding on canola plants grown with clothianidin-treated seed affects overall colony health. “We’re not looking at minor behavioural differences,” said ScottDupree, who grew up in Brandon. “We’re looking at things that beekeepers would also do to make their assessments.” Following the canola bloom, ScottDupree will check the bees for brood production and adult mortality. After over-wintering, they will count the number of adults and evaluate the hives for colony strength. Scott-Dupree carried out a similar study in 2007 on canola treated with clothianidin, which was published in the Journal of Economic Entomol-

ogy. The paper found no difference in bee mortality, brood development and worker longevity between the experimental group and the control group. “The results show that honeybee colonies will, in the long term, be unaffected by exposure to clothianidin seed-treated canola,” ScottDupree wrote in 2007. However, the EPA no longer accepts the conclusions of that study. The agency decided the canola fields were too close together, which meant bees may have migrated between fields rather than remain on the seed treated canola fields. Scott-Dupree altered the protocols for her latest field trial to accommodate the EPA’s criticism. “In this study that we’re doing this year, all fields are separated by 10 kilometres.” Scott-Dupree knows entomologists and environmentalists from around the world will scrutinize her study, but she said she has confidence in the protocols and hopes the result will influence public policy in North America. “I would like this study … to stand in the foreground in the decision making by EPA and PMRA, in terms of what they think the kind of impact that neonicotinoid seed treatments are going to have on bees.” However, Scott-Dupree thinks that seed treatment policy will ultimately be based on public opinion and politics. “In the end, I think politics and emotion outweigh the science. It has frustrated me over the last 15 years, that often when we have really good scientific evidence, people don’t listen to it.”

NEONICOTINOID STUDIES: • neonicotinoids are the most widely used insecticides in the world • this spring, scientists with the French National Institute for Agricultural Research published a paper, which showed that bees exposed to low doses of thiamethoxam, a Syngenta neonicotinoid, were two or three times more likely to die while foraging than a control group, because they couldn’t find their way back to the hive • in another study, Scottish scientists treated bumblebee colonies with imidacloprid, a Bayer neonicotinoid. The colonies exposed to the insecticide produced 85 percent fewer queens than the control group, which the scientists concluded would significantly thwart colony reproduction • in a Purdue University study, scientists found high levels of clothianidin and thiamethoxam in planter exhaust while planting seed-treated corn. Dead bees found near the entrances of hives in the spring had high levels of clothianidin. Scientists weren’t sure if the exposure was from contact with soil contaminated with planter dust or from pollen collected by bees.

Too big to drift - too $ 25 11 small to run off.â&#x20AC;?


Drift occurs when droplets are smaller than 200 microns. Standard sprayer nozzles drift because they produce droplets that are 50-300 micron in size with a large percentage under 200. With a droplet range of 200-550 microns, the Air Bubble Jet has 90% less drift than standard nozzles.


$ 95


Run off occurs with big droplets - 600 microns and over. Depending on the manufacturer, other low drift nozzles produce droplets that range in size from 250-1000 microns. That is why run off can be a problem. With a droplet size of 200-550 microns, your chemical stays on the plant when applied with the Air Bubble Jet. New Twin Air Bubble Jet. With the twin cap, you can use 2-5 gallon nozzles rather than 1-10 gallon nozzles. The advantage is you get over twice as many droplets per square inch for superior coverage. Air Bubble jet nozzles operate at 30-45 psi and have an overall range of 20-90 psi.They can be used to apply fungicides, insecticides and herbicides to any crop including potatoes and pulse crops.

Imported food faces less scrutiny CFIA accused of misleading MPs | Union says only two percent of imports are inspected BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Food imports face far less rigorous inspection than Canadian food exports and the result is a Canadian population at risk, says the president of the union representing federal food inspectors. Bob Kingston, president of the agriculture union of the Public Service Alliance of Canada, also accused a senior


Canadian Food Inspection Agency official Feb. 15 of misleading MPs about the level of import inspection. Two days earlier, CFIA associate vice-president Paul Mayers told MPs that there is a common perception that imports are not as thoroughly inspected as exports or products destined for the Canadian market. “First, let me assure the committee that there is only one set of rules,” he said Feb. 13.

“Those rules apply to imports the same way they apply to products moving domestically. Indeed in the context of products that are exported, if there are additional considerations, those are not CFIA requirements.” Kingston said that is not true. “I hate to say this, but you’ve been seriously misinformed on a number of very important issues,” he told MPs.

Doug Chorney pre-booked his spring fertilizer but didn’t lock in a price because he thought it was too high at the time. Last week he got a call from his anhydrous ammonia supplier. “They thought this was the time to price it,” said the farmer from East Selkirk, Man. Chorney locked in a price of $1,050 per tonne delivered to the farm, which is down from $1,100 before Christmas. “Although I’m not thrilled with that price, it is a little better,” he said. David Asbridge, president of NPK Fertilizer Advisory Service, thinks Chorney made a prudent decision. “We think we’re probably pretty close to the bottom of these markets,” said the U.S. analyst. The average wholesale price for urea in the U.S. Midwest for the first half of February was $440 per short ton, which is up slightly from a year ago but down sharply from the average of $537 in September 2011. Asbridge believes the freefall is nearly over and prices will start heading back up in the next two to four weeks as spring approaches. “(Farmers) probably should go ahead and start thinking about buying some of their fertilizer.”

Beef producers take message to consumers Connecting consumers, farmers | Father, daughter featured on McDonald’s tray liners show their care for cattle BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Joanne Solverson laughed when a McDonald’s restaurant customer asked her if she was paid big money for a picture of her and her father, Dave, to be used on a McDonald’s tray liner. For the father and daughter duo, being part of a McDonald’s promotional campaign is just part of their job as beef producers. “It’s important for people to know that one of the biggest franchises uses beef produced right here in the c o m m u n i t y ,” s a i d J o a n n e o f Camrose. Dave Solverson said a Cargill cattle buyer approached him this spring about being part of the restaurant’s campaign to connect restaurant food with the producer. “This is a good way to show Canadians that cattle producers do a good job of caring for their animals,” said Dave, the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association vicepresident and chair of its animal care committee. Joanne, a member of the Cattlemen’s Young Leaders Development Program, said she wants to help consumers make the connection between the hamburger they eat and producers. The Solversons’ photo is on a paper tray liner that will be used all summer as part of the promotional campaign. The fourth-generation farm family has 800 head of commercial cows. The calves are finished in a small feedlot at the family ranch.

Lessons learned for Cargill in pink slime’s ‘ick’ factor Consumers react to media coverage | Negative reaction to finely textured beef caused plant closures, job losses BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

SASKATOON — Mike Martin, Cargill’s director of communications, doesn’t call it pink slime. He calls the meat product by its industry name: finely textured beef. But it was pink slime that caught public attention in March, and pink slime that caused U.S. beef plant closures and job losses when the public reacted to media, blog and twitter reports that highlighted the product’s “ick” factor. Martin was matter-of-fact in relating his impressions of the phenomenon at the June 6 International Symposium on Beef Cattle Welfare. He said lessons were learned. “All of the facts and all of the science of an established process were trumped by emotion and perception in the court of public opinion,” said Martin. Backlash against the product affected 80 percent of Cargill’s business in finely textured beef, and 1,500 jobs were lost at Cargill and Beef Products Inc. of South Dakota.

BPI, which produced 75 percent of the finely textured beef in the United States, closed three of its four plants. Finely textured beef, known in Canada as partially defatted chopped beef, is made from fatty trim off beef carcasses that has small bits of beef attached, said Martin. The trim is heated and put in a centrifuge to separate the meat from the fat. The meat is then used in other beef products. Martin said many consumers would likely be surprised to learn that finely textured beef is added to ground beef to increase its lean content. Cargill’s smallest plant processes 4,500 head a day and its largest processes 6,000, said Martin. That results in a lot of fatty trim that could be used somewhere in the food supply. “It’s a tremendous waste not to use this, and the industry has the capacity in the U.S. of about 850 million pounds of finely textured beef annually, or at least it did.” Though the pink slime term was

All of the facts and all of the science of an established process were trumped by emotion and perception in the court of public opinion. MIKE MARTIN CARGILL

first coined in 2002, it became a cause célèbre in early 2012 when McDonald’s announced it would no longer use finely textured beef in its burgers. In spring, the U.S. Department of Agriculture gave schools a choice on whether to include products with the meat product in school lunch programs. Blogs, tweets and nine primetime news segments on ABC television followed. “That kind of coverage is usually reserved for war or something of

that nature,” Martin said. Pink slime was the number one search term on Google for two days and Cargill tracked more than 10,000 online items on the topic. With more factual information now available to the public, Martin said he is optimistic that markets for finely textured beef will return. “Frankly, in order to provide all the ground beef that’s necessary in the United States, we’re going to have to use it.” His story was a cautionary tale to others in the beef industry that factors beyond their control can have a major impact. Reaction to welfare concerns over hog gestation crates is another example. “We have also seen that retailers and food service operators, in the absence of developing carefully thought-out plans in some cases, will react in the court of public opinion and make decisions that impact the supply chain,” said Martin. Transparency is at least part of the answer to public concern, he added. He also recommended a proactive approach.

An example of the latter for Cargill was the appearance of general manager Nicole Johnson-Hoffman on the Oprah television show in February 2011. “Interestingly enough, there were more than 20 other companies approached to participate in this and none of them agreed to do it,” said Martin. “So Cargill turned out to be the only company represented on the show, which was titled Food 201. By all measures it was, in baseball parlance, a grand slam home run for the beef industry.” Martin said the public is being desensitized by the news media, which have a “food issue du jour” that often provides conflicting information. Cargill studies on credibility show consumers rate food scientists first on the list when it comes to food information. They are followed by nutritionists, USDA officials and animal scientists. The bottom three on the list are media, grocery stores and bloggers.





Good managers must be compensated: Glencore CEO defends salaries | Ivan Glasenberg told angry shareholders: ‘if you want good CEOs, you are going to have to pay’ L O N D O N , U. K . ( R e u t e r s ) — Glencore chief executive officer Ivan Glasenberg has defended bumper executive pay at his company. In a rare public address, he brushed aside a “shareholder spring” that has seen widespread protests at firms listed in Britain and telling investors they must pay for entrepreneurial spirit. Glasenberg also signalled support for the CEO of mining company Xstrata, which Glencore plans to take over in a $30 billion purchase. Shareholders have criticized proposed retention payments for Xstrata’s top managers as “excessive,” “unacceptable” and “depressing,” stoking fears that the backlash could threaten the deal. Glencore, which is involved in a

They decided it was more important to keep these gentlemen in the job, to make sure they are there for the good integration of the companies. IVAN GLASENBERG GLENCORE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

$6.1 billion takeover of Canada’s largest grain handler Viterra, is the world’s largest diversified commodities trader. It owns almost 34 percent of Xstrata and the deal to combine the two groups into a mining and trading powerhouse is expected to be voted through next month. However, the “golden handcuffs” have angered

minority shareholders. In an impassioned defence of executive compensation, which came a week after Xstrata announced it would pay retention deals to 73 of its key employees totalling more than $270 million, Glasenberg told an industry dinner that shareholders needed to pay for managers who

deliver returns. “(For a CEO who does not own shares), to get him to have this entrepreneurial culture, to work like one of us, to chase every deal like we do, we are going to have to pay him,” Glasenberg said. “If I were the CEO and my shareholders voted down my salary, my compensation, because they did not believe I was worth it, then you have to leave.... If you want good CEOs, you are going to have to pay.” Glasenberg himself earns a modest salary compared to industry peers, but he also owns almost 16 percent of Glencore and earned almost $110 million from last year’s final dividends. Xstrata’s Mick Davis, meanwhile, is one of the best paid executives in the London Stock Exchange’s FTSE 100

index, taking home $5.4 million last year in salary, cash bonus and benefits, excluding long-term incentives, deferred bonuses and retirement benefits. “We are a major shareholder in Xstrata. I am happy to pay him well because he is giving us great returns.” Asked specifically about Davis’ retention payment and those for others at Xstrata, Glasenberg said the decision was taken by Xstrata’s indep e n d e n t d i re c t o r s a n d n o t by Glencore, an interested party. “Should (the packages) be performance (related)? They decided it was more important to keep these gentlemen in the job, to make sure they are there for the good integration of the companies,” he said.


Muslim country food reserve proposed to counter shortages ASTANA, Kazakhstan (Reuters) — Kazakh president Nursultan Nazarbayev has proposed the creation of a food reserve among Muslim countries to guard against shortages and improve food security in the Islamic world. Nazarbayev proposed that Kazakhstan, the world’s largest flour exporter, should play host to a group of Muslim countries similar to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization. Rising bread prices, compounded by crop failures in Russia and other grain-growing countries, helped fuel the protests that toppled the leaders of Tunisia and Egypt and provoked further unrest across parts of the Arab world. Seventy percent of Kazakhstan’s 16.4 million population is Muslim. The country, which is a former Soviet republic in central Asia, holds the ro t a t i n g c h a i r m a n s h i p o f t h e 57-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) this year. “In order to reinforce food security, I propose we work out a system of food aid within the framework of the Organization of the Islamic Conference,” Nazarbayev told an Islamic economic forum. He suggested creating a regional fund, “similar to the FAO,” which

would involve the Saudi Arabiabased Islamic Development Bank and the creation of a food pool from OIC member countries. “I propose that we accommodate such an organization in Kazakhstan, as a country that is actively developing its food export potential,” said Nazarbayev, who has ruled Kazakhstan for more than 20 years. Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak said food security was among a number of issues “of special interest and concern to the Muslim world.” Djibouti president Ismail Omar Guelleh said 22 of the OIC’s 57 member states ranked among the least developed in the world and suffered from a food deficit. Kazakhstan, by contrast, is a net exporter of grain. With annual domestic grain consumption in the region of 2.5 million tonnes, the vast steppe nation has averaged a crop of 17 million tonnes over the last five years. It was the world’s seventh-largest wheat exporter in the last marketing year and plans next season to match or exceed the six million tonnes planned for export in the current season. Though its 2010 crop also fell victim to the drought that prompted Russia to halt exports, Kazakhstan managed

to fill part of this shortfall, increasing exports to Azerbaijan and particularly Turkey. The country is also seeking investment to develop a meat industry, which would allow it to raise annual beef exports to 60,000 tonnes by 2016

from virtually nil today. Nazarbayev also proposed creating an “Islamic G10” to improve investment opportunities for the world’s leading Muslim economies. He said more co-operation was needed in the field of scientific and technologi-

Power line proposals unveiled for southern Alberta Going to public | Line to connect wind farms with the electrical grid in Hill Spring, Magrath, Stirling and Cardston regions BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

STIRLING, Alta. — Another portion of the Southern Alberta Transmission Reinforcement plan is on the order paper and residents near Hill Spring, Magrath, Stirling, Cardston and Pincher Creek are being asked for input. AltaLink has mapped out a series of potential routes for a line from a substation near Pincher Creek to another near Stirling. This particular section of what AltaLink calls the Goose Lake to Etzikom Coulee project may run near Waterton Lakes National Park and also skirt several environmentally sensitive native grasslands. The route is also likely to affect numerous irrigation farmers and may go through the Blood Indian reserve. “We’re getting a lot of negative feedback, and there’s no doubt about that. We always knew it. We’re in close proximity to Waterton Park. These are very scenic areas,” AltaLink right-of-way planner Conrad Journault said at a June 13 open house in Stirling. “We get negative sentiment wherever we go. Sometimes more, sometimes less, but I’ve never built a project where there hasn’t been somebody opposed to it.” Decisions on the need for transmission lines are made by the Alberta Electric Systems Operator. In the case of SATR, additional lines are needed to connect new and proposed wind farm operations to the electrical grid. Landowners affected by this section of line have received notice about the various routes AltaLink is considering. New to the recent series of open houses is information on a possible route through the Blood reserve, which is federal land and thus adds an additional level of complexity to planning. “This is the route that they (Blood

AUGUST 2 - 5, 2012 CAMROSE, AB

Indians) said would be acceptable to them,” said Journault. “In the case of federal lands, we don’t have a whole lot of choice of going back and saying, ‘that doesn’t work for us, we want something else.’” The line will have to go around the reserve if no routing arrangement is reached, which would add an additional 30 kilometres to the route. Journault said AltaLink’s goal is to strike a balance between the effects a 240 kilovolt power line, built on steel lattice, will have on farmland, native grassland and residences. He said it would be impossible to avoid effects on irrigation farming. Priority is given to building along quarter lines, but that can still affect pivots. As well, AltaLink considers building its lines parallel to existing ones, but that also has limitations, Journault said. “You can move to try to parallel existing power lines, but you can’t tuck it right up against them. You have to meet county road setbacks, which still puts you 120 to 140 feet into the field.” Effects on irrigation were a concern for farmer Gerrad Wauters, who attended the open house. He’s concerned that one of the proposed routes would force him to alter his end gun pivot, resulting in loss of irrigated acreage. AltaLink has a system for landowner compensation in such cases. There are also early access, general disturbance and land damage payments. Annual fees are paid for lattice structures on private property. After public consultation, AltaLink will select a preferred and alternate route and submit them to the Alberta Utilities Commission. The commission will then assess the route, its cost and viability relative to wind farm interests and decide whether to approve it. If approved, the project is expected to be in service in 2015 at an estimated cost of $300 to $450 million.


Japan entry may ease pressure Supply management compromise may not be necessary BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Call 1.888.404.1234 or Ticketmaster

Analysts have been speculating that Canada’s cost of entry into Pacific Rim trade talks could be a promise to compromise supply management protections. However, a Quebec trade expert says Canada’s vulnerability really depends on how much Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiators want Japan included in the talks. The Pacific powerhouse also wants into the TPP talks, and it has extensive agricultural protectionist policies. If existing TPP negotiators allow Japan to join without pre-conditions or with minimal demands on agriculture policies, it will give Canada

the chance to demand the same treatment, Bruno Larue told the Senate agriculture committee recently. “If major concessions are made for Japan to enter the talks, then it will certainly be easier for Canada to also enter the talks, probably without having to make concessions on supply management.” Larue said Canadian negotiators have been successful in the past in fending off demands for concessions on supply management, which institutes a system of domestic quotas and high tariffs to control prices and supply. When trade talks began with the European Union, “they were also talking about us getting rid of supply management. From what I hear, it is not such a big thing any longer for them.”

When tiny tractors are the big dogs University engineering | Students take their designs on the road to Illinois and take away skills in agricultural design BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

The University of Saskatchewan Sled Dogs finished sixth overall in total points at the recent International Quarter Scale Tractor Contest, while the University of Manitoba Tiny Tractors finished fourth in the pull category. The competition, sanctioned by the American Society of Agricultural Biological Engineers, took place in Peoria, Illinois, May 31 to June 2 and included more than two dozen teams from university agricultural engineering departments across North America. While the feature event is always the tractor pull, the intent of the competition is to prepare students for the real working world. So, as much fun as the tractor pull is, it’s only one factor in the overall scoring. There are 18 other judged categories, including sportsmanship, craftsmanship, manufacturability, ergonomics, innovation, written design report and team presentation. The U of M team finished 12th in total points. The University of Kentucky took top honours. In the past, each team received a box-stock Briggs & Stratton 16 horsepower engine and a set of Titan rear drive tires. The engine could not be modified in any way. Beyond that, the rules were wide open to encourage innovation and original thinking. Universities with big budgets ran five or six of the 16 h.p. engines in one tractor, which organizers felt gave them an unfair advantage. The rules were changed this year so that each team was given a B&S 31 h.p. engine, two rear Titans and two smaller diameter front drive Titans. This meant that the tractors could simulate front wheel mechanical assist tractors, but true four-wheel drives are not allowed. Teams that still had good 16 h.p. engines in their inventory were allowed two engines per tractor. These older tractors competed in their own class. U of S Sled Dogs Third year engineering student Allison Graham said the judges are looking for innovative, original engineering along with practicality. “It’s not all about tractor performance. There’s a marketing aspect to the competition as well,” she said. Tractor designs must be marketable in a production run of 3,000 annually. “We define our market and then design a tractor to fit that market. “That means we’re judged on the thought process that goes into the tractor long before we even begin to design it. “

Students with the University of Manitoba Association of Tiny Tractors put the finishing touches on their 31 horsepower pulling machine. |

Power reaches the ground on both sets of axles via a modified Argo transmission; the U of S runs a CVT and transaxle from a John Deere Gator. | U OF S AND U OF M PHOTOS The same tractor can’t compete twice, which means teams must either scrap the previous tractor or make significant changes to the existing design. Some teams bring a fresh design every year while others keep a basic chassis up to three or four years. The Sled Dogs entered two tractors this year: a modified version of its 2011 model with the 16 h.p. engine plus a new tractor with a fresh, ground-up design. “For the last three years, our frame was quarter inch thick aluminum. The judges didn’t like that because of practicality, so the new tractor has a steel frame,” Graham said. “Our new tractor is running the 31 h.p. big block with the CVT and transaxle from a John Deere Gator. That’s the same drive combination that worked pretty well in the 2011 tractor.” The Sled Dog team has an annual budget of $40,000, much of which is needed for transportation and

accommodation at the competition. “We have 20 engineering students on the team and we have to raise all the money ourselves,” she said. “We sell sponsorships on the tractor and local businesses donate things we need. That’s all part of the whole challenge. It’s like the real world.” U of M Tiny Tractors The University of Manitoba Association of Tiny Tractors came up with a design for 2012 that perplexed even the judges, according to team adviser Donald Petkau. “I think a few of the judges were confused by the team’s design. It was quite unique.” Because they were building a front wheel assist tractor, the r.p.m. at the smaller-diameter front tires had to make a perfect match with the r.p.m. of the larger-diameter rear tires. They gutted the Argo amphibious

transmission and had new gears custom cut in Michigan. Output from the 31 h.p. engine goes through a modified CVT snowmobile pulley transmission. “But the students thought the primary clutch reacted too slowly for optimal Tractor Pull performance. So last year they removed the weights and built a manual control that the driver operated with a lever. “That was a big improvement over the original primary clutch system. “For 2012, they got really aggressive and attempted full electronic control of the primary clutch. They had a computer engineering student on the team for months trying to perfect it. They even built their own board and other components that weren’t available off the shelf.” Petkau said the team finally had the electronic control system mating the engine data to the primary clutch control working quite well. The stu-

dents were sure it was a winner until the day before they loaded the tractor on the trailer. T h e b o a rd s u d d e n l y s t a r t e d grounding out and the electronic system that held so much promise was destroyed. Luckily, they still had all the parts for manual control, so they made it to Peoria on time, but Petkau said the tractor was not really a completed machine. However, it worked surprisingly well. “They had two good runs, but then they had one bad run where they hit a soft spot and spun out early. If that hadn’t happened, they would have had first place.” It might have been tempting for the team to stick with this year’s design, considering its fourth place finish in the pull competition. However, Petkau said the team captain decided last week that the team is starting from scratch next year, which reflects the true spirit of the contest.





Public money for wheat research has support BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

A Western Grains Research Foundation survey indicates wheat growers strongly support increased funding for public wheat breeding in Canada. On June 11, the WGRF released results from its survey of 600 wheat and barley growers in Western Canada. In the March telephone survey, conducted by a Saskatoon research firm, 84 percent of producers said funding for breeding programs by public organizations like Agriculture Canada and universities should increase with the goal of developing new and improved varieties. A month after the telephone survey, the federal government cut Agriculture Canada’s budget for wheat breeding, including the closure of a major wheat breeding facility, the Cereal Research Centre in Winnipeg. “Unfortunately, it looks like the spring wheat program for the black and dark brown soils zones has been slashed by about one-third at

a time when the world needs more production,” said Grain Growers of Canada president Stephen Vandervalk, following the government cutbacks. Twenty-three percent of growers who took the survey said weather was their number one wheat production concern and 23 percent said disease was their number one worry. As well, even though canola may soon overtake wheat as the number one crop on the Prairies, 92 percent of growers in the survey said they had grown wheat in the past three years. Seventy five percent said they had grown canola over last three years and 57 percent had grown barley. Further, 90 percent of respondents said wheat was a very important or somewhat important part of their crop rotation. On the negative side for wheat, when growers were asked why they grew it, 64 percent said they planted wheat for crop rotation. Only 18 percent said they grow it because of price or market demand. Six percent plant wheat because it’s cheaper or easier to grow.

Emergence results show inter-row beats row cropping Accurate seeding required | Better seed-to-soil contact and soil closure play role BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

TRIPLE or PRESSURE-RINSE your empty pesticide containers

The second year of an inter-row seeding trial near Lethbridge shows better canola emergence compared to check plots. Far ming Smar ter, an applied research group, held a crop walk June 13 to show area farmers early results of this year’s trials. Brent Nicol, a co-ordinator with Farming Smarter, said inter-row canola seeded on a test plot this year had 18 percent better emergence, and last year’s plots near Wrentham, Alta., had 12 percent better emergence in canola planted into wheat stubble. General manager Ken Coles said there are likely several reasons for those positive results, among them better seed-to-soil contact when

seeding between stubble rows, and better closure behind the openers. When seeding into the previous year’s row, stubble and root mass can potentially prevent seed placement at the proper depth and adequate closure once the seed is planted. “The other potential issue is more either nutrient or disease type effect,” said Coles. He speculated that plants from the previous year may have used all the nutrients in that immediate zone. There may also be higher organic matter in the previous year’s root zone, affecting the carbon-to-nitrogen ratio. Crop yellowing in the area of last year’s swath might be caused by lack of nutrients due to early volunteers and competition, or residue breakdown that is somehow toxic to new seedlings.

“Our results have shown that seeding on the row is bad and seeding in between the row is good,” Coles said. “The trick is how much effort do you take to go from 90 percent interrow … to 100 percent inter-row.” Accurate inter-row seeding on a long-term basis would require an RTK positioning system. And although better canola emergence has been noticed in the first two years of the inter-row trial, Coles said no yield advantage was found last year. “So far, at least on the narrow rows, we haven’t seen the yield advantage. I think that’s just an attribute to canola. I can’t really speak to any other crop.” Still, better seed emergence is an economic advantage for farmers in terms of seed cost.

BASF looks back on busy decade

Scientists genetically modify insect


Diamondback moths targeted | Goal to reduce destruction by harmful pest BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Coming years | Two more herbicides, herbicide resistant cropping system, fungicides, insecticides and more


arkus Heldt, head of BASF’s international crop protection division predicts one of the company’s new herbicides will cover 20 million acres in North America this year. He said Kixor (safluenacil), one of two new herbicides with new active ingredients BASF released between 2002 and 2009, is proving popular and is in line to post big acreage use. As well, BASF released fungicides such as Caramba and Headline as part of six new disease products, Heldt said at a recent meeting in Chicago. Scott Kay of BASF Canada said Headline improves yield by controlling fungal infections on plants and expanding the flowering and filling phases. These benefits make the pyraclostrobin a successful product for the company, he added. “The past few years have been pretty busy. The next few will make them seem quiet.” Heldt said another pair of herbicides with active ingredients will come to market between now and 2020. As well, the company will introduce at least one herbicide tolerant cropping system in the form of already announced dicamba-ready crops, three more fungicides, an insecticide and bundled packages of agronomy, chemicals, plant genetics and marketing partnerships. Nevin McDougall, BASF’s head of crop protection for North America, said a new relationship with Cargill will put the company’s omega 3 fatty acid canola into Canadian farmers’ fields and ultimately into Cargill’s food processing business. “It is a different and more sustainable


MICHAEL RAINE MANAGING EDITOR approach to the business,” he said. “And functional crop care broadens our approach to product delivery to farmers. By ensuring that growers get not just the chemistry but the advice and support when it comes to fertilizer and water management, we can leverage the higher yields that make those producers our long-term customers.… Developing a new active in crop protection is a $200 million or more investment. It takes a lot of sales over time to pay that off.” McDougall said one of the ways his company intends to support that sort of research investment is by leveraging the value that new products can deliver to producers. He said ensuring that growers get the most out of the product builds the kind of loyalty that will support the large-scale research projects that are needed to make significant steps in agricultural productivity. Heldt said the cost of adding new products is rising. BASF spent $388 million in crop protection research in 2007 and $530 million last year. It plans to spend $775 million per year by 2020. “It costs a lot of money to be innovative,” he said.


$775 million annually ON CROP PROTECTION RESEARCH

A British company has pioneered a way to create a sterile male diamondback moth that it hopes will reduce the destruction caused by the harmful pest. Oxitec scientists have genetically modified the diamondback moth to create sterile male insects that mate with wild females of the same species. The genetic modification prevents females in the following generation from surviving to adulthood. In a news release, Oxitec scientists said transforming the pest is only the first phase of the research. More work is needed to develop and evaluate the project. Alberta entomologist Scott Meers said the work is interesting, but he doesn’t know how it could be adapted across Canada’s vast canola acres. “If it’s anything like other sterile male releases, it’s really, really expensive. It wouldn’t make sense on our extensive canola crops,” he said. Sterile male releases are often used in controlled settings such as greenhouses rather than being released in fields. Meers is unsure of the economic impact of diamondback moths on Canadian canola crops. The severity of infestations in Canada is often difficult to predict because it depends on over wintering populations in the United States and strong south winds that carry the moths north into Manitoba, Saskatchewan and eastern Alberta. The moth can cause millions of dollars in damage when conditions are right as the larvae feed on the tender green canola and mustard leaves. Cool, wet weather helps control adult activity and can drown the small larvae. Parasitic wasps attack the moth in western Canada, and insecticides also control larval populations. Jim Broatch, with Alberta Agriculture’s Pest management branch said he doesn’t know how effective a sterile diamondback moth release would be because most of the moths are blown in from the U.S.

Diamondback moth larvae can cause significant crop losses. | “When would you would release the males? I guess you could figure out in advance. I am not sure how successful it would be or how many you would need to release to impact the population,” said Broatch. “We don’t know how many are going to be blown up.


Sterile male release of the coddling moth in Okanagan apple orchards has been quite successful, but is done in a limited area. ”It would be a tough one to figure out in how much to invest and how much you would benefit from it (in field crops),” said Broatch.

New BASF tank mix lets growers tackle weeds in fall Centennial Column Celebrating 100 years of students at the College of Agriculture and Bioresources. The Centennial Column is a weekly feature highlighting the history and present successes of the college.

Steve Shirtliffe, associate professor in the Department of Plant Sciences.

Organic Opportunities “After I give a talk on organic agronomy, I always experience a scrum of organic farmers peppering me with questions,” says associate professor Dr. Steve J. Shirtliffe, whose research focuses primarily on organic applications. “There’s a huge hunger right now for research that can help organic farmers since they were marginalized for so many years.” In North America, Saskatchewan boasts more organic farmers per capita than any other region. International demand for organic grains and organic pulses requires advanced research for improved crop yields. Dr. Shirtliffe in Plant Sciences is a key figure in the organics research field at the College of AgBio. When Dr. Shirtliffe arrived at the U of S in 1997 from the University of Manitoba, he studied conventional agriculture techniques. But in 2000, he began field crop agronomy and weed ecology research on organic farms. Dr. Shirtliffe’s current research focus involves creating agronomic techniques to reduce weed seed production and increase crop yields. Shirtliffe also teaches several undergraduate courses that include Weed Control in Organic Agriculture, Weed Biology and Sustainable Crop Production. Shirtliffe says organic farming requires a different approach to weeds than conventional farming methods. “That’s essentially the theme of most of my research, which is to develop ways of managing weeds agronomically. Organic farmers develop a tolerance to weeds — a different aesthetic — that their fields will never be as clean as conventional agriculture. However, we’ve found that by employing multiple techniques, we’ve really been able to reduce weed pressures found in organic agriculture.” Dr. Shirtliffe says the big story in weed control is when researchers combine all their techniques for an ‘additive effect.’ “By using optimized agronomy, we see noticeable weed reduction and increased crop yields. If we double our seeding rate, increase seeding with a more competitive variety and use incrop harrowing, we’re starting to see a 70 percent weed reduction,” says Dr. Shirtliffe, who with colleagues Eric Johnson, Dilshan Benaragama and Julia M. Baird, find especially promising results with oats. “Essentially, good agronomy is more effective than herbicides in weed control.”

No cropping restrictions | Effective on weeds glyphosate can’t control BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

BASF received approval in May for a new product that is used when there isn’t a crop in the ground. Distinct, which comprises diflufenzopyr and dicamba blende d w i t h g l y p h o s a t e, h a s b e e n released as a tank mix for chem fallow and post-harvest control of tougher weeds such as dandelion, Canada thistle and narrow-leaved hawks beard, along with most winter annuals and annual broadleaf weeds and cereals. The Group 4 products provide control of most of these pests when mixed with the Group 19 glyphosate, but they don’t restrict crop choices for the coming season. The diflufenzopyr and dicamba are know as Overdrive without the glyphosate mix and is marketed by Engage Agro for BASF. That package is meant only for established grass pastures. Mixing the glyphosate with the other two already-combined chem-


istries begins with Distinct, followed by the glyphosate and then an adjuvant and a dose of 28 percent UAN as non-ionic surfactant. Michael Schaad of BASF said the product is effective with weeds that glyphosate has a hard time controlling or are difficult to kill because of weed growth staging. “There are no cropping restrictions the next spring,” he said. “That means that producers using chem fallow for pulse production can deal with their worst weed problems in the fall when the products are most effective.” The product should find a market in

the southern Prairies for Group 2 and glyphosate resistant weeds such as kochia, he added. “Group 2 resistant weeds have been a problem for a long time,” he said. “Now with kochia being resistant to glyphosate, products with more than one mode of action are becoming the solution of choice.” Schaad said a March Ipsos Reid telephone poll of Canadian producers found that 75 percent of farmers said they felt herbicide resistant weeds were hurting their profitability. He said the poll, which BASF commissioned, also indicated that half of producers feel weeds are getting harder to control with herbicides. “They tell us they are turning to products or tank mixes that use more than one mode of action as a result,” he said. “The whole solution lies in rotating crops and the herbicide groups and keeping rates up where there is less chance of selection and survival. Multiple modes of action go a long way to resisting resistance.”

previously wrote about the need to stop what you’re doing while in a pressure situation so you can review the problem and talk to yourself. When doing this, you might hear yourself say, “did I do that? Why, that has absolutely nothing to do with this problem.” Let’s say a hired person says, “you and I have to have a talk. That tractor of yours has no power. Last year it was good, now it seems to be dead. I think we should take it in.” The first question you ask is, “how do you know?” He’ll say, “well, I can’t pull the same load.” So you ask yourself, “what has changed?” If you were in a panic mode, you might say out of habit that he should change the filters. Or you might ask if the field is more moist than it was last year. Or you might ask yourself, “did we weigh the tractor after we put all that fluid in the tires?” It might be over-

Check-off idea sparks debate Refundable checkoff pondered | ABP says directional checkoffs would be ‘worst of all worlds’’t regulations irk beef producers





EDMONTON — It’s been more than two years since the Alberta government changed a $3 mandatory beef checkoff to a refundable checkoff, but concerns about the process haven’t disappeared. Alberta Beef Producer chair Doug Sawyer told delegates at the organization’s semi-annual meeting to expect discussions about a possible “directional checkoff” soon. “I may be the first person to bring it up publicly,” he said. “It may be risky business for us, but I do believe that we are going to be discussing directional checkoff on the political level very soon.” Under the current rules, producers can request a refund from ABP and then either keep it or voluntarily give it to another organization. A directional checkoff wouldn’t allow producers to keep refunded check-off money. Instead, they would be forced to redirect that money to another organization. Sawyer said he has heard rumblings from cattle producers wanting to return to a mandatory $3 per head checkoff on every animal sold to ensure all producers pay their share of research and promotional funding. “I am not sure who is driving it out there. We are just hearing about it.” Sawyer said ABP isn’t agitating to reopen the political discussion to change the checkoff from mandatory refundable to mandatory directional. “To us, directional is the worst of both worlds,” he said. “You have a mandatory checkoff that eliminates choice for producers. Secondly, it will send the money in whatever direction you can imagine. If there are 106 organizations today, if you throw some money up in the air, you’ll have 206 tomorrow.” Sawyer said ABP used to collect $8 to $12 million a year from the beef checkoff when it went only to the organization, but that has dropped to less than $5 million a year since the legislation was changed in 2010 to make the checkoff voluntary. The organization has received 1,000 refund requests this year totalling $2.1 million. Seventeen percent were for amounts greater than 1,000 head and represented 85 percent of the refunded money. Of the refund requests, 166 accounted for $1.6 million of the refunded money. ABP received requests for $2.5 million in refunds last year. Of t h o s e, 1 4 9 re q u e s t s w e re f o r amounts greater than 1,000 head and represented 80 percent of the money, or $2 million. Sawyer believes producers who have left their money in the organi-

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Using grazing plans and other land management techniques, Judy Guichon is always trying to leave her Quilchena, B.C., ranch in better shape than before. As outgoing president of the British Columbia Cattlemen’s Association, she hoped she would leave office in a better position by cutting through government red tape. New pieces of legislation covering water, manure management and animal health have surfaced along with ongoing debates with forestry, environment and agriculture ministries over rights to grazing and use of other natural resources. In meetings with officials they were often told the rules were made to oversee the actions of a few who do not to comply. “For two percent of those who break the rules we tie the hands of the other 98 percent,” she said in an interview at the recent cattlemen’s annual meeting in Fort St. John. On a national scale, the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association hopes to address overlap and added costs of regulations, said president Martin Unrau of Manitoba. “There is domestic regulatory burden and there is international burden,” he said at the B.C. meeting. The association hopes for improvement through the Canada-United States Regulatory Co-operation Council signed by prime minister Stephen Harper and U.S. president Barack Obama earlier this year. Included in the international debate is the added cost of veterinary drugs in Canada compared to the United States, complaints that Canadian meat is reinspected when it enters the U.S. and higher costs of preventing BSE in Canada. There are also myriad interprovincial regulations that make it costly and frustrating to do business. Unrau recently returned from Washington where discussions included regulatory change. A threehour session dealt with harmonizing the names of meat cuts. The North American Meat Processors Association agreed last March it would prepare a list of specific nomenclature issues that are currently disrupting trade between Canada and the U.S. These would be items where different names are used for the same cut or part. “Trying to adjust the nomenclature should be so easy but when you get all these guys in a room, they say now our domestic consumers won’t know what we are talking about,” Unrau said in an interview. “It’s not moving along at a very fast pace. There is a lot of resistance,” he said.

He s a i d A BP w o n ’ t l o b by t o reverse the checkoff. Instead, it will wait to hear what producers want. “We believe that’s an initiative that needs to come from the producer. I am certain the producers will ask for it to be done, it’s just a matter of when.” Brent Chaffee, chair of the Alberta Cattle Feeders Association, which lobbied for the checkoff to be refundable, said the group hasn’t asked for a directional checkoff. “At the moment, I don’t think there is much of an appetite to revisit that legislation,” he said. A refundable checkoff is a good way for groups to be accountable for their money, said Chaffee, who doesn’t believe there will be a serious discussion about a directional checkoff. Some of the refunds have been

voluntarily turned over to organizations such as the cattle feeders association, but much of the refunded money has been kept by producers. “I think everyone on both sides of the fence is not putting money back into either organization,” said Chaffee. Sawyer said what’s disappointing about the check-off changes is that less money is going into beef and cattle research, lobbying and promotion. “Now, as an industry we have lost that money and that is a real concern,” he said. “No matter who you think should be working for the industry, that money is lost today.” While producers can request a refund for $2 of the $3 checkoff, $1 is still mandatory and is used by organizations like Canada Beef Inc., whose job is to market and promote

the cattle and beef industry. ABP and the cattle feeders association both have a memorandum of understanding that the Alberta money should be directed to Canada Beef. The agreement is up for review next year, when the cattle feeders association decides if Canada Beef is the best organization to help improve the livestock industry. “We need to see the benefits,” said Chaffee. Sawyer said Canada Beef is still developing and needs financial support from Alberta. “ Th e y ’ re d o ing a great j o b. They’re giving value to producers on the ground. It’s putting money back in our wallet,” said Sawyer. Alberta Agriculture’s Marketing Council, which is responsible for producer checkoffs in the p r o v ince, says it hasn’t been approached about changing the beef levy.




Open housing stalls gain hog producers’ interest Changes on the way | A Quebec distributor says producers know gestation stalls are on their way out and want to know their options BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Thomas Simonsen and Helena Echberg explained the operation of open housing sow stalls to hog producers at the World Pork Expo trade show in Des Moines, Iowa. | ED WHITE PHOTO

DES MOINES, Iowa — Helena Echberg is no longer treated like she is flogging a flakey European product. Instead, the Quebec-based distributor of open housing sow stall machinery now finds farmers want to know how to use it. “They used to say, ‘that’s a European thing that will never come over here.’ Now they say, ‘show me how it works.’ ” A steady stream of farmers visited Echberg’s booth at the recent World Pork Expo trade show. They wanted to know what sort of production systems they might need to use if the move away from gestation stalls happens within the next few years. “People know this is coming and they’re looking for solutions,” said Echberg, who was displaying a Danish “free access” stall system that allows sows to enter stalls for food and rest but from which they can back out at any time. Her colleague, Thomas Simonsen of manufacturer Vissing Agro, said 60

to 65 percent of European production will be using free access systems and most of the rest will be using electronic sow feeder systems when open housing becomes law in the European Union Jan. 1. Some producers attempted to convert existing stall barns to open housing by ripping out the stalls and having nothing but open pens, but Echberg said that hasn’t worked. “We saw in Europe that that doesn’t work. It hurts production,” she said. Gestating sows will fight over food and social dominance, which free access systems solve by allowing them to find refuge. As well, electronic sow feeding systems prevent the animals from getting more than

their individually prescribed ration, which eliminates the incentive for bullying. Echberg said the European Union has imposed heavy rules and regulations on hog farmers, but the carefully worded laws have had one positive element missing in North America. “It was easier. They knew exactly what they needed to do, how many square feet you needed per sow, things like that,” said Echberg. Many North American producers aren’t sure what kind of a system they might be required to install in the future, she added. “Over here, there are so many questions.” For now, Echberg is pleased to be answering concrete production and installation questions instead of the skeptical challenges she received last year. With even major companies like Smithfield Foods embracing open housing, farmers want to make sure they know what their future options are going to be. “The train has left the station,” said Echberg.


Feedlot practices improve, but castration issues persist BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

SASKATOON — Animal welfare in Canadian feedlots has steadily improved over the years, but castration of incoming bulls remains an issue. Dr. Kee Jim, veterinarian and founding partner of Feedlot Health Management Services, said some feedlots will not accept bulls because of the time, effort and associated costs of castration. Jim told the International Symposium on Beef Welfare June 6 that castrating older bulls is hard to defend, even with the use of painkillers and anesthesia. “It’s questionable in my mind whether that is going to survive here in North America,” he said about castrating bulls in feedlots. “The market signals aren’t doing it because the discount for the intact bull is not enough to get the rest … on the right page. If the discounts were steeper, then people would abandon the practice.” Jim estimated that 10 to 15 percent of cattle arrive at feedlots as intact males. With no reasonable way to manage bulls, feedlot operators castrate the animals even if their age and weight are not desirable from a health perspective. Anesthetics are sometimes used but that is not consistent across the industry.


nutritionists are now part of a feedlot’s management routine. He listed five major categories of animal welfare improvement: • physical infrastructure • health management • nutrition • consideration for welfare • better training of feedlot personnel

Feedlots have improved upon many practices over the years, but some issues remain. | “Proactively, the beef industry could deal with the issue by simply volunteering … to regulation on age of animals that can be castrated. If we did that, we wouldn’t really have to worry about it at the feedlot level,” he said. Animals that have one testicle because of an incomplete castration, usually due to banding, should be handled outside the usual feedlot

production system, he added. Jim said feedlots no longer brand or dehorn cattle. Branding is unnecessary in animals confined to a feedlot, while dehorning is not worth the health setbacks that can occur. As well, Jim said the feedlot industry has dramatically reduced its use of electric prods. “In many situations, the improvements in welfare occurred because


they were consistent with improvements in productivity and improvements in profitability.” Jim said cattle welfare has improved since the birth of Western Canada’s feedlot industry in the late 1970s. Calves are seldom brought to feedlots directly after weaning, which causes stress and related health problems. As well, Jim said veterinarians and

Improved equipment for feeding, bedding, wind protection and drainage has also contributed to better conditions, he said. “The other thing that’s been good to see over the years is that there is a consideration for reducing animal suffering by feedlot owners and managers.” Jim said he does not believe the beef cattle industry faces a crisis because of criticism of its animal health practices.

umps on the head and jaw area of cattle are common. There are several potential causes, and treatment can vary depending on the cause. Lumpy jaw is a bacterial infection of the jaw bone of cattle. It can affect either the lower or upper jaw but is most commonly seen on the lower jaw in the area of the cheek teeth. The bacteria responsible for the infection inhabits the mouth of cattle and is introduced into the soft tissue by penetrating wounds in the mouth caused by wire, coarse forage or sticks. The infection becomes established within the jawbone of the animal and begins to cause a thickening of the bone and significant swelling. These lumps are hard and immovable and are attached directly to the jawbone. Identifying that the lump is bony and attached to the bone of the jaw is the key to diagnosing lumpy jaw. In the later stages, the lumps become even more swollen and painful to the touch. They will eventually break open and discharge small amounts of pus. The bony changes and swelling can affect the alignment of teeth or cause teeth to be lost as the disease progresses, which can make chewing difficult. If left long enough, the animal will begin to lose condition and become emaciated. No treatments are available to effectively cure lumpy jaw, which means infected animals need to be sent for slaughter before they lose significant body condition. A veterinarian may use intravenous sodium iodide or other injectable antibiotic therapies to attempt to slow the progression of the disease, but these therapies will not cure it. Affected animals should be isolated to prevent contamination of feeding areas. Wooden tongue is caused by a different species of bacteria, which also invades the soft tissue of the mouth through abrasions caused by rough feed and abrasive pasture plant species. Wooden tongue often appears in beef cows on pasture. These animals are often first noticed because they are losing weight. A closer examination will reveal they have excessive salivation and may make chewing motions without having feed present. The tongue will be swollen and large and there may be swelling on the underside of the jaw region. The cow will often appear in pain if its tongue is manipulated, and there may be nodules or ulcers on the sides of the tongue. Several treatments can be recommended by a veterinarian, but injections of sodium-iodide or an antibiotic such as penicillin or oxytetracycline are the most common. Unlike lumpy jaw, these animals

will show significant signs of improvement in 24 to 48 hours after treatment. Abscesses are another common cause of swellings around the head and jaw area. They are caused by a variety of bacteria, including the same bacteria that can cause wooden tongue. The bacteria usually enter the soft tissue of the mouth through similar abrasions that are caused by rough feed or awns. In this case, the swellings are softer and more moveable, although a thicker capsule will eventually develop around them. The swellings are only in the soft tissue and aren’t attached to the bony jaw or skull.

Some cattle may have multiple abscesses in a variety of sites around their head and neck. Placing a sterile hypodermic needle in these lumps can often demonstrate pus in the centre of the abscess. A veterinarian might prescribe antibiotics such as penicillin or oxytetracyline, depending on the location and number of abscesses. However, in many cases the abscesses will have to be lanced, drained and flushed because it is difficult for antibiotics to penetrate the thick capsules around them. Foxtail awns must be physically removed for the animal to completely recover. They can cause dramatic ulcers on the tongue and in the

Other potential causes of lumps in the head area of cattle include hematomas caused by trauma. These are usually best left alone to heal on their own, although some may become abscesses and need to be drained eventually. Sw ollen lymph nodes can be

caused by a variety of problems and may appear as swellings in the neck and jaw area. These animals should be examined by a veterinarian to diagnose the cause of the swelling.

Producers told to stay abreast of rules on federal pastures Grazing, construction | Knowing wildlife rules helps minimize disruption BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

CYPRESS HILLS PROVINCIAL PARK, Sask. — Producers who eventually own land that is now part of the federal pasture system need to stay on top of environmental legislation that affects them. Heather Wiebe, a federal biodiversity extension specialist who has spent 10 years working with pasture managers, said understanding the nuances of legislation such as the Species at Risk Act is critical to being able to conduct grazing as usual. Her role has been to do that on pasture patrons’ behalf, but she is worried about what will happen without a point person to follow these issues. She recommended at the recent Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association meeting that organizations have someone who knows the legislation inside and out to advise producers. Wiebe said grazing doesn’t usually cause problems for species at risk. Thirty-one species at risk live on the federal pastures and are there because of good grazing practices.

“Species at risk and grazing are so perfectly suited to each other, it’s ridiculous that there could be any kind of infractions,” she said. “These are the best lands for spec i e s - at- r i s k re c ov e r y b e c au s e they’re large contiguous blocks of prairie.” However, construction activity such as new fences, corrals or water development can disrupt certain species at certain times of the year. Wiebe developed comprehensive binders for each pasture, setting out where each species is found and the best times to undertake work to minimize disruption. She said she will give the information to whoever ends up owning the pastures. “The act that first and foremost affects them is the Saskatchewan Wildlife Habitat Act.” The federal SARA supersedes that l e g i s l at i o n b u t w o u l d o n l y b e enforced on private or provincial land if Ottawa decides there is a significant infraction. Other legislation such as the migratory birds act also comes into play. “Stay ahead of these things,” Wiebe said.


“Grazing goes so well in hand with the species that are there. (Producers) just need to be advocates for the good work they’re doing.” And while producers might not always understand legislation, the developers of the legislation don’t always understand grazing. Some of the troubleshooting she did involved making sure the correct language was used. For example, the term “heavy grazing” might have a negative connotation or it could mean grazing hard once or grazing routinely so it affects plant growth. Burrowing owls need short grass to thrive, while other birds need tall grass. “They don’t realize that what we see as the value of that 929,000 hectares (2.3 million acres) of land is for it to have a diverse nature,” Wiebe said. Being able to advocate for all 85 pastures as a group was an asset when they were all federally run. It will be up to producers to become advocates for their own good works now that the system is about to be fragmented into individual pastures, she added.

Former ag minister to chair security intelligence panel Chuck Strahl | The former British Columbia MP was also named honorary director of the Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Chuck Strahl scored two more honours last week. Prime minister Stephen Harper named the former British Columbia MP chair of the Security Intelligence Review Committee, which oversees and reviews the operations of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service and hears complaints about the spy agency. Strahl was also named an honorary director of the Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute, a federally support-

ed research organization housed on Agriculture Canada’s Experimental Farm in Ottawa. CAPI was founded with federal support in 2004 under the previous Liberal government, but as the Conservative government’s first agriculture minister, Strahl supported continuing the support with extended financing. The institute has been sponsoring research on the potential elements of a national food strategy, including the link between health policy and agriculture’s ability to provide nutritious and healthy food.

CAPI also announced last week the first change in leadership in its history. Gaetan Lussier, former federal and Quebec agriculture deputy minister and CAPI chair since the institute was launched in 2004, stepped down at the annual meeting June 14. He was named an honorary member, as was Alberta cattle industry veteran and academic Robert Church. Lussier spent most of the 1970s as a senior agriculture official in the Quebec agriculture department and after 1977 as federal deputy agriculture minister. The new CAPI chair comes from the

industry side of the sector. Ted Bilyea is a food industry consultant and former executive vicepresident of Maple Leaf Foods Inc. Lussier was scheduled to speak about an agricultural food strategy and its importance to Canada at an Economic Club of Canada meeting in Ottawa June 12, but the speech was cancelled. Two days later, retirement from his almost eight-year term as chair was announced. Bilyea said in a statement he wants to use CAPI as a forum to bring food industry leaders together to find solutions to “tough problems.”

The research institute has been working to develop a national food strategy that involves collaboration between all players in the industry. Last year it launched a study on the beef industry that aims to prove how a system approach, in which all players co-operate despite their varying market power, “could help the Canadian beef sector become more competitive and profitable.” The study is expected to be published this summer, and CAPI says its findings could be applied to other sectors looking for collaboration, improved profitability and competitiveness.


European Union proposes rule to allow trace imports of GM BRUSSELS, Belgium (Reuters) — Tiny amounts of unapproved GMOs will be permitted in food imports to the European Union under draft rules that the bloc’s executive are expected to propose shortly. Exporters and European producers say the rules are needed to avoid disruptions to food imports because global supply chains are making it increasingly difficult to guarantee that cargoes bound for Europe are

free of GMOs not yet approved in the bloc. “The European Commission has said it wants to tackle this issue before the end of this year, and we will table a proposal in the very near future,” said Frederic Vincent, commission spokesperson for health and consumers. The draft rules are likely to be proposed before the European summer break to allow enough time for EU

governments and lawmakers to approve them by the end of the year, said another official. Last year, the bloc approved a similar law allowing up to 0.1 percent of unapproved genetically modified material in animal feed imports after several shipments from the United States were blocked at EU ports because unapproved GM material was found in some cargoes. The problem arises because of the

slow pace of GMO approvals in Europe, which creates delays of up to two years between new varieties being cleared for cultivation in North and South America and getting import approval from the European Union. As with the existing rules for feed, the proposals are expected to set a tolerance threshold of 0.1 percent, and the GMOs in question must be approved in the exporting country

with an EU authorization request already lodged with the European Food Safety Authority. A l l E U i m p o r t a p p rov a l s a re granted for both food and feed uses, reflecting the integrated nature of global commodity supply chains. As a result, EU officials said it was impractical to have a GMO contamination threshold for imports of feed but not for food.

I see carinata picking up steam and picking up momentum. MIKE CEY AG-WEST BIO

Mounting opposition to U.S. military use of biofuel won’t prevent the jet biofuel industry from taking off in Western Canada, says an expert in the field. Promoters of the jet biofuel industry and its associated oilseed crops like camelina and carinata often point to the U.S. military’s interest in the alternative fuel as proof of future demand for the product. The U.S. Department of Defense bought 1.7 million litres of jet biofuel in 2011 and plans to buy more in the coming years. The navy has a goal to meet half of its energy needs with biofuel and other alternative forms of energy by 2020. So a proposed ban on the military’s use of biofuel could be a big blow for jet biofuel makers. A bill that would prevent the U.S. military from buying and investing in biofuels that are more expensive than fossil fuels recently passed through the Senate’s armed services committee and was approved by the House of Representatives. The navy paid $26 US per gallon for jet biofuel in December compared to $4 per gallon for the fossil fuel alternative. It projects it will still be paying a $5.40 per gallon premium for the fuel by 2020. Mike Cey, vice-president of corporate development with Ag-West Bio,

believes this development will have little impact on Western Canada’s fledgling jet biofuel industry. Ag-West has spent the last 18 months completing a feasibility study on the economics of making jet biofuel from camelina and carinata, two new oilseed crops for the prairie region. The study indicates there should be strong demand for the fuel in Western Canada. “That opportunity will continue to exist regardless of what the U.S. military decides to do,” said Cey. Canada imports about 60 percent of the jet fuel it burns. The shortage is particularly acute in the landlocked Prairies. “The best opportunity (for jet biofuel) exists where jet fuel is most expensive today and it was indicated to us that happens to be Western Canada,” he said. One reason jet biofuel is expensive in the United States is the high cost of farmland, which forces farmers to grow only high yield, high value crops. The U.S. government recently attempted to lure farmers in California and Washington into growing camelina to be purchased by the U.S. military on the West Coast. A rich subsidy program was implemented to entice farmers to grow 50,000 acres of the crop. “The net result was they got zero signup,” said Cey.

“They’ve got to grow things of much, much higher value than a subsidized camelina program.” By contrast, Agrisoma Biosciences Inc. was able to contract 8,000 acres of carinata in Saskatchewan and Alberta in its first attempt at commercializing the crop. The program was oversubscribed. Cey said it is becoming clear that carinata will be the industrial oilseed of choice for Western Canada’s jet biofuel industry. Agrisoma is multiplying enough seed for farmers to plant 100,000 acres of the crop next year. “I see carinata picking up steam and picking up momentum,” he said. The feasibility study, which could be released as early as the end of June, will show that there is a gap between the compensation a producer needs for the crop based on today’s varieties and what refiners are willing to pay for the feedstock. Cey is confident that gap will be closed by the work happening at Genome Prairie. It is one year into the Prairie Gold project, a three-year, $4.5 million initiative to develop higher yielding lines of camelina and carinata with enhanced oil content. He recently attended Prairie Gold’s first annual general meeting where he learned that the project is well on its way to achieving its research targets.

Viterra 2nd quarter results soar

Viterra announced its net earnings more than doubled to $67 million in the second quarter of 2012, while its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization increased by 43 percent to nearly $185 million compared to the previous year.

One of the last financial reports | Earnings 18 cents per share, up from eight last year (in $millions except per share) BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

In what is likely one of its last financial reports before the expected Glencore takeover next month, Viterra Inc.has announced record second quarter results. Net earnings for the quarter year over year were more than double at $67 million compared to $30 million. Earnings before interest, depreciation, taxes and amortization (EBITDA) for the quarter were a record $185 million, up 43 percent. Chief executive officer Mayo Schmidt said in a news release that the company continues to deliver robust results and is proud of the successful business it has built. “Viterra’s value has been recognized by our global agricultural peers with the recent acquisition interest and the significant premium being paid by Glencore to acquire the company,” he said, referring to the $16.25 per share offered by Glencore for Viterra. Earnings per share for the three months ending April 30 were 18 cents, compared to eight cents a year earlier. In the quarter, Viterra’s agri-products division saw record EBITDA of $64 million on the strength of fertilizer sales volume and pricing. Fertilizer margins averaged $113.51 per tonne during the quarter, compared to $108.76 last year. The early start to spring seeding saw some sales that would usually occur in the third quarter come earlier. Grain handling and marketing EBITDA increased 14 percent to $141 million. Western Canadian shipments grew 17 percent to 4.3 million tonnes and the year-to-date consolidated global pipeline margin is $35.65, compared to $32.79 the previous year. Processing also saw a 33 percent improvement in EBITDA to $28 million on improved pasta and canola

contributions. The food processing margin for the quarter increased to $100.33 from $98.96, mostly due to lower raw material costs in the pasta business and more higher-margin specialty canola oil sales. Year-to-date, the company’s EBITDA is $374 million compared to $339 million last year and net earnings were $145 million compared to $131 million. Viterra estimated that seeded area in Western Canada is about 60 million acres., up from 55.4 million last year and on par with the historical

average. Canola area is expected to be a record 20.3 million acres, driven by strong prices and tight stocks. In South Australia, the company estimates seeded acreage will be up five percent to 9.8 million acres. Canola acres, however, will be up 30 percent to 865,000 acres, while lentil acreage drops 12 percent. Also June 12, Viterra announced the second semi-annual cash dividend for the year of 7.5 cents per share. The dividend will be paid July 25 to shareholders of record on July 6.
