New trade deal worries supply management

Farmers due for volatile weather

Canada invited to join Trans-Pacific Partnership BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Canada has been invited to join the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations, and agricultural exporters could not be happier. However, supply managed sectors are in defensive mode, knowing that Canada will be under pressure to drop high tariffs on dairy, poultry and egg imports as the price of joining the TPP. Exporters were thrilled. “Joining the TPP is a major step towards Canada integrating into more trade relationships with other countries in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Grain Growers of Canada executive director Richard Phillips. The cattle, pork, beef, grain and oilseed sectors see an opportunity for hundreds of millions of dollars in new sales opportunities once a deal is signed, likely several years away.

Weather cycles | 800 years of data BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

DES MOINES, Iowa — Concerns about dryness in the United States Midwest have driven up crop prices in Canadian and international markets, yet few people actually believe that a severe drought is about to hit the region. For that matter few traders express a belief that wild weather will ravage crops anywhere. Most talk about being confident that the world’s farmers will experience normal weather, even if some isolated crops see market declines. But that’s not a safe way to think, said Iowa State University weather analyst and crop production expert Elwynn Taylor. The kind of weather most people consider to be “normal” is really just one half of a two-part cycle, he said, and the dangerous second part is set to begin soon. “What we know is we’re ending a period of stability and going into a period of volatility,” Taylor said during a recent weather outlook session. “We expect to be in a period of volatility for the next 20 to 25 years.” Taylor said the past two decades have seen tame swings in weather patterns and have produced generally rising corn and soybean yields in the U.S. Midwest. That predictable trend is likely to end this year or next year, ushering in an age of huge swings in yields. SEE VOLATILE WEATHER, PAGE 2

Volatile weather coming Taylor’s predictions, if they come true, would have major implications for crop markets around the world because Midwest U.S. prices have a big impact on world prices. World vegetable oil crop prices, including Canadian canola, take their lead from U.S. soybean prices, and world feedgrain prices, including Canadian oats and barley, closely follow the path that U.S. corn takes. Taylor claims that centuries of weather evidence, including corn yields for more than a century and tree ring data for 800 years, shows a pattern of interchanging periods of volatility and stability. In a period like the 1980s, droughts and other major weather events wreak havoc on crop


production, leading to wild swings in crop prices. Weather conditions are generally benign year after year in a period like the late 1990s to the present, allowing crops to come close to their potential in most years. He doesn’t know what causes the pattern of periods switching between volatile and stable, but he is convinced that the long, stable period that most farmers and consumers have become accustomed to is ending. He is also sure that the kind of unpredictable weather and crop production that characterized the 1980s is coming back. “About now,” Taylor said.

WILL WEATHER WREAK HAVOC ON CORN YIELDS? Elwynn Taylor believes 800 years of weather evidence suggests that the relatively steady yield gains of the past 20 years are likely to be replaced by a period of wild weather swings like the 1980s that could limit yield growth.

Deal worries supply management trade agreements, and it’s not an impediment at all.” The dairy and chicken sectors issued statements proclaiming faith in the Conservative government’s promise to preserve supply management while creating more trade opportunities for export sectors. “The Canadian government has successfully concluded several trade deals and maintained supply management,” Dairy Farmers of Canada said. “We expect the government will maintain its position to defend supply management in all international forums and bilateral trade negotiations.” Political defenders of the system were not so sure. Liberal trade critic Wayne Easter demanded that the government make clear if it made pre-condition concessions to be invited into the talks. “Canada was undoubtedly forced to make concessions as a condition of being accepted into the trading partnership,” he said. “We are asking the Conservative government to be transparent and provide all details of this trade negotiation.” Hall Findlay clearly hopes the worst fears of her former Liberal caucus colleague are correct. “The TPP is a great opportunity to do the right thing and to transition out of this wrong policy,” she said. The aim of the talks is to create a trade zone of more than 600 million people, including some of the fastest growing markets in the world.

“In the absence of Canadian membership in these critical negotiations, Canadian meat exports would have become increasingly disadvantaged in the dynamic and growing trans-Pacific marketplace,” said Canadian Meat Council executive director Jim Laws. However, the announcement put supply management supporters on edge during a week when domestic pressure grew for politicians to end the 40-year-old system of production controls, import restrictions and price setting. “It simply is time for politicians to understand that this is bad policy and must be changed,” former Liberal MP, trade critic and likely future Liberal party leadership candidate Martha Hall Findlay said June 21 as she released a report calling for the dismantling of supply management. The United States, Australia and New Zealand have argued that a commitment to negotiate supply management should be a condition of allowing Canada to join the ninenation talks that have been underway for several years.

Stampede marks centennial with sculpture Stampede set for July 6-15 | Bronze artwork shows cowboys’ and horses’ struggle to cross Bow River BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

The unveiling of a larger than life sculpture depicting horses and cowboys struggling to make a river crossing marks the past and future of the Calgary Stampede. By the Banks of the Bow was created by two artists from Longview, Alta., who have been working together on the piece for four years. The sculpture is intended to represent the past, present and future of the Stampede’s western heritage. Rich Roenisch took over the pieces that show horses from 100 years ago traversing the Bow River while Bob Spaith created the modern bucking broncs. The unveiling was the first time the two had seen the completed bronze, which includes two cowboys and 15 horses. “It’s how we pictured it,” said Roenisch. The concept was intended to be realistic while still encouraging viewers to use their imagination. “We wanted the action to make sense. There was a reason for what each horse was doing,” he said.

Over time, the work will take on a green patina. “Bronze gets better as it ages,” Roenisch said.

Each horse was cast separately and the entire work consisted of 700 panels that were cast,

Review period extended for $6.1 billion Viterra takeover deal BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The federal government will take another month to review a proposed multibillion-dollar takeover of Canada’s largest grain handling company. Industry Canada was to have completed its review of a proposed $6.1 billion takeover of Viterra by June 18. However, Viterra confirmed last week that the review period has been extended by one month. Officials from Glencore International, the proposed buyer, also confirmed the one-month extension but said they still expect to have all necessary approvals in place and the transaction completed by July 31. “Glencore remains focused on achieving all regulatory approvals, including those under the Investment Canada Act, in time for the closing of the transaction, which is expected to be by the end of July 2012,” the Swiss company said in a June 17 news release.

Approval by Industry Canada is one of the last remaining regulatory hurdles facing the Glencore deal. Canada’s Competition Bureau indicated May 3 that it would not challenge the transaction. The deal has also gone through antitrust proceedings in the United States, and Australia’s competition regulator, the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission, has granted unconditional approval for the transaction. Stefanie Power, a media relations spokesperson for Industry Canada, said officials could not comment specifically on the Glencore-Viterra deal for confidentiality reasons. However, Power said industry minister Christian Paradis would OK Glencore’s application for Industry Canada approval if the deal is deemed to be a net benefit to Canada. Factors that could influence the minister’s decision include: • the effect of the investment on the level of economic activity in Canada, including employment,

resource processing and the use of parts, components and services produced in Canada • the degree and significance of participation by Canadians in the Canadian business • the effect of the investment on productivity, industrial efficiency, technological development, product innovation and product variety in Canada • the effect of the investment on competition within any industry or industries in Canada • the compatibility of the investment with national industrial, economic and cultural policies • the contribution of the investment to Canada’s ability to compete in world markets “In making a determination, the plans, undertakings and other infor mation submitted by the investor are all carefully considered,” said Power. Liberal MP Ralph Goodale said the Industry Canada review must be conducted thoroughly and carefully

to ensure that Canadian farmers and Canada’s economy are not adversely affected. The review should include a thorough investigation of Glencore’s past business practices, its labour practices and its environmental record in other countries, he said. “There has been a lot of controversy surrounding this company and it’s about to become one of the biggest corporate citizens in Canada,” Goodale said. “There needs to be a very thorough examination of who Glencore is and what their established business practices are. Surely that will be part of the Government of Canada determining net benefit or not.” Although the Competition Bureau has said it will not challenge the Glencore-Viterra deal, it has yet to weigh in on side deals involving the proposed transfer of Viterra assets from Glencore to Calgary-based fertilizer manufacturer Agrium and Winnipeg-based grain handling company Richard-

son International. Goodale said the Agrium deal is particularly worrisome and could leave farmers operating in a less competitive environment. “That’s one area where there was a pretty clear consensus,” he said. “People from all ends of the spectrum said there is a risk of diminished competition (in the crop nutrients sector) that would work to the disadvantage of farmers.” He also said Canada should seek assurances from Glencore that it will carry through on its promise to establish a North American agricultural head office in Regina. “It will be important to get the detail of exactly what does that promise amount to?” Goodale said. “Is it symbolic or is it substantive … and if it is substantive, how are you going to enforce that substance? What are the levers that the Government of Canada will have to make sure that those promises of jobs and corporate (investment) … in Regina are in fact real?”






Unusual weather may be the norm Extremes more common | While some areas are hot and dry, the Prairies are in a wet phase BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Prairie residents shouldn’t expect an end to extreme weather anytime soon. Dave Sauchyn, a climate researcher at the Prairie Adaptation Research Collaborative, said volatility will continue to be more common as the climate changes. “It’s pretty well understood now that as you heat up the world, you can expect more severe weather. There’s just more energy in the atmosphere and so the climate is warming,” he said. “Extreme dryness and wetness is the kind of weather we expect with a warming climate, and so we can expect more of this.” The weather we consider unusual will become more normal as those extremes become more common, he said. The Prairies are already home to the most naturally variable climate on the planet because of the effects of the oceans. “In fact, it’s even hard to detect global warming in our part of the world because temperatures are all over the place,” said Sauchyn, who is based at the University of Regina. However, while it is getting warmer and drier overall, the region has entered a 30-year wet phase. Sauchyn said the flooding seen through much of the area the last couple of years signaled the start of the wet phase of the 60-year climate cycle. Scientists discovered about 10 years ago that approximately 30 years of wet conditions are followed by 30 years of dry conditions. “We need to think 60 years at a time,” he told a Canada’s Farm Progress Show forum. “We’ve only been here about 100 years.” Tree ring studies have shown that over the last 950 years, the most water in the North Saskatchewan River was during the 30-year period of the 1880s to 1910s. That is when the Prairies were populated, Sauchyn said.

The droughts have usually been more severe than the flooding, particularly in the mid-1850s when they la sted f o r mu ch lo nger tha n a decade. There is evidence that in 1796 the North Saskatchewan River completely dried up, he said. It could happen again. “We are bound to get a drought like the 1850s or 1790s,” he told his audience. The wet phase that the region has just entered means it is mostly the young people who start farming during the good moisture conditions who will have to deal with drought in 30 years time. “You have my sympathy,” Sauchyn said. Meanwhile, he said the small temperature changes that will occur as the climate warms could add a month to the prairie growing season. Data from 12 prairie weather stations shows warming of about 15 degrees since the 1880s. The effects are greater when those changes occur around -2 to 0 C. Sauchyn showed data from April and October 2010 in one location that could have seen the last spring frost come two weeks earlier than it did and the first fall frost happen two weeks later if a few nights were just two degrees warmer. However, he cautioned there will still be June frosts and other events that throw a wrench into what farmers actually experience. “Weather is what we get, climate is what we expect,” he said. Climate change is defined as a statistically significant variation in the mean state of a climate, or its variability, that persists for an extended period. A warmer climate would have advantages for farmers, including increased productivity, the potential to grow new crops and longer seasons. However, there are disadvantages: increased insect infestations, heat damage, more soil erosion, more problems with weeds and disease and increased moisture stress and drought.


Farm Progress considered among top shows in North America Attendance, industry support strong | Glencore has agreed to take over sponsorship of the show from Viterra through 2014 BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Organizers of Canada’s Farm Progress Show said that last week’s 35th edition saw a stronger international presence and record number of exhibitors. Final numbers weren’t yet available, but show manager Rob O’Connor said more than 640 international visitors from more than 50 countries attended, surpassing the goal of 600.

As well, at least 52 foreign exhibitors set up shop at the show. “I do know that inside of the international business centre, the offices have been full. I’ve never seen them so full in my history here at the show,” O’Connor said. The show, which rebranded itself from “Western Canada” earlier this year, hosted a record 806 exhibitors. The show is now considered the largest in Canada. “We are bigger than any show in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, any-

where,” said outgoing chair Larry Gregga. “We are it.” Regina mayor Pat Fiacco said it’s safe to say the city could be branded as Canada’s agricultural business centre. “We understand the economic spinoff of shows like this,” he said. Tobias Eichberg, a consultant from Germany who has been advising show management, said there is more room for the show to grow and evolve. The three main indicators of a show’s success are attendance, the number

of exhibitors and floor space. “If you put all these together, I would say Canada’s Farm Progress Show is among the top three or four in North America,” he said. The trade show business is volatile, he added, with some disappearing and others being created. The Regina show is on solid footing with attendance of 42,000 to 45,000 each year over the three-day event and strong support from exhibitors. Last week, Viterra announced it had renewed its sponsorship through

2014 and that Glencore had agreed to honour the commitment. Incoming chair Rene Carpentier said the show consults with larger farmers identified by its stakeholders to make sure it continues to meet their needs. Organizers also want to make sure the show offers information along with the latest in farm innovations. O’Connor said at least 24 new products were launched at the show this year, including a combine, air seeder, grain cart and truck.





Prairie growers on alert for fast spreading disease Stripe rust | Wet weather this spring has provided ideal growing conditions BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

A winter wheat field near Burdett, Alta., is the proverbial canary in the coalmine for stripe rust. The large field, up to 40 percent infected with the disease, showed the potential for infection in other winter wheat fields, as well as possible spread to susceptible varieties of spring wheat. “It’s definitely showing up in a lot of the (winter wheat) fields we’re looking at now,” said Agriculture Canada plant pathologist Denis Gaudet. “It’s showing up at low levels in a number of different areas of southern Alberta so we’re sort of on the watch for it.” Saskatchewan has had only one report of stripe rust so far this crop season. It was found in winter wheat in the Wolseley area and has put crop experts in that province on alert. “We know that we had the disease last summer at higher levels than we were used to seeing,” said plant disease specialist Faye Dokken Bouchard of Saskatchewan Agriculture. However, she said wind trajectories forecast by Environment Canada indicate only a moderate risk of stripe rust spores spreading from the U.S. Pacific Northwest. In the case of the Burdett field, how-


ever, Gaudet said it appears stripe rust overwintered. The leaf disease also overwintered in 2010-11, which led to severe infestation and yield losses in winter and spring wheat last year. Stripe rust usually arrives in Canada later in the growing season via spores borne on winds from the United States. By then, it is too late to do major crop damage but the spore cloud spreads the disease and creates a risk that stripe rust will overwinter. Gaudet encouraged wheat producers to scout their crops every two or three days for signs of stripe rust, which is characterized by orangeyellow stripes of pustules that grow in lines parallel to the leaf veins. Stripe rust flourishes in cool, wet conditions, which have been common across the Prairies this spring. A hot, dry spell could eliminate the threat. Even if discovered, Gaudet urged producers to carefully consider whether spraying with fungi-

cide is warranted. “What we would like to see is only spraying if it becomes necessary to control stripe rust, because at trace levels, stripe rust is not going to do any damage at all.” Winter wheat is now in the heading stage in southern Alberta, and the crop cannot be sprayed after flowering. However, Gaudet said there is danger the disease could spread to spring wheat crops. “There is a potential there for real problems because obviously that rust can move from a more mature winter wheat to a very early development stage spring wheat.” The most popular varieties of spring wheat are resistant to stripe rust, he added, so producers should not be compelled to spray if they’ve planted one of those types. Stripe rust, like many pathogens, can change rapidly, and researchers are hard-pressed to keep up with it. A high-temperature strain evolved 10 years ago, and it is now causing problems in Kansas and Nebraska. Thirtysix different strains have been identified in Canada. Dokken Bouchard said stripe rust is easy to identify, though it can sometimes resemble leaf spotting diseases. If the spores come off when leaf pustules are rubbed with a finger, it’s stripe rust.

Stripe rust is spread by spores so there is a danger the disease will spread from winter wheat to spring wheat crops. | FILE PHOTO



Growers should take close look at millet as late seeding option

Weevil invades alfalfa crops; up to 80 percent damage BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM


Reynald Gauthier says all is not lost for growers confronted by flooded fields. He sells a crop that might work for them. “Millet right now is probably the only option that they have, being it’s getting late,” he said. “You can seed millet until about July 20 for cow feed.” Gauthier, who owns Millet King Seeds of Canada Inc. in St. Claude, Man., said seeding that late would probably result in half of a normal millet crop, but that might be a better option than summerfallow. Growers who can get on their fields by July 5 might be able to produce seed for the birdseed market and straw for their cattle. If not, it could be a good swath grazing option. “C ow s ju s t l ov e m i l l e t,” s a i d Gauthier. Grant McLean, a cropping management specialist with Saskatchewan Agriculture, said millet could be an option for growers in eastern Sas-

Millet is an alternative to fall planting because it can be seeded until mid-July. | FILE PHOTO katchewan, where there has been considerable flooding. “Certainly individuals have in the past used that as a late season alternative to oats, particularly for forage,” he said. Millet is a C4 crop like corn and sorghum that can be planted late and will thrive under hot and dry conditions. However, the crop will have trouble competing with the weeds if July and August are cool and damp. “In its initial stages, it’s a pretty

wimpy little thing,” said McLean. There can also be nutritional problems for cattle that eat the crop if it freezes in the fall. Farmers will have to weigh whether they want to experiment with planting a late-seeded crop like millet or leave their flooded land unplanted until the fall, when they can seed fall rye or winter wheat, said McLean. Gauthier sells his millet seed for 40 cents per pound. Growers will need to seed at a rate of 30 lb. per acre for a total cost of $12 per acre. Seed sales were disappointing this spring so he has enough left over supply to plant 30,000 acres of the crop. A millet crop could yield 32 bushels per acre under ideal growing conditions, which would result in a potential return of $7.50 per bu. based on a price of 15 cents per lb. if the seed was sold into the birdseed market. Gauthier said the crop is ideally suited for seeding on summerfallow or a flooded canola field, in which case it would require 60 lb. of nitrogen per acre. The crop would need 75 lb. per acre if seeded on stubble.

A pest that was a blip on the radar screen in Saskatchewan has suddenly become a bright light. Saskatchewan Agriculture started surveying for alfalfa weevil in 2009 and discovered noticeable populations of the newcomer to the province. Regional forage specialist Lorne Klein said the infestation level rated a three on a scale of one to 10. A year later, a survey of the same fields showed the pest had almost disappeared. “In 2011, bingo, there they were again. They came right back to 2009 levels,” he said. And then came the 2012 survey. “It really took us by surprise. Like holy cow, they just exploded.” Klein said he’d rate this year’s outbreak an eight out of 10 on pure alfalfa stands in areas of southeastern Saskatchewan. “It’s very, very significant,” he said. “If you’re a hay grower, it’s kind of a big issue for you down here. People are certainly getting their hay bines out quicker than they intended to.”


Don Payak, an alfalfa seed grower near Weyburn, Sask., said the insect has inflicted severe damage in his area of the province. “It’s kind of catching everybody by surprise. We’re starting to learn a lot.” The damage is particularly severe in pure alfalfa stands, where yields could be reduced by 50 to 80 percent. “Some of them are pretty much decimated. I don’t know what you could do. Maybe just cut them and hope for regrowth.” Payak fared better than most. He sprays his fields for lygus bugs in the spring because he is a seed grower and inadvertently killed off the weevils in the process. However, even his farm didn’t escape unscathed. “I have one hay field of my own that probably isn’t even up to my knees and it’s really brown and just a lot of damage,” he said. Many alfalfa fields were late blooming last year. People blamed it on excess moisture and disease, but in retrospect Payak thinks it was probably due to the weevil. Saskatchewan Agriculture advises growers to hay early to control the pest. They die as the vegetation dries up.

Wheat stocks below expectation Falling stocks-to-use ratio | Cutting India and China out of the forecast suggests tight supplies BY SEAN PRATT

Viterra deal widens CWB delivery options


World wheat supply is a lot tighter than it appears at first blush, according to U.S. Wheat Associates. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is forecasting the second largest world wheat supply on record in 2012-13. However, a closer look at the numbers reveals “a more fragile wheat market,” said USW market analyst Casey Chumrau. It appears there will be ample global supply when China and India are lumped in with the rest of the world. However, while those two countries comprise 30 percent of world wheat production, they account for a mere one percent of global trade of the commodity. Taking production from those two mammoth producers out of the equation provides a picture of available wheat supply rather than total supply. That picture shows that production in the five traditional wheat exporting countries and the three major Black Sea exporters, which together account for 88 percent of world wheat exports, is expected to fall three percent below the fiveyear average. Meanwhile, consumption outside of India and China is expected to rise three percent above the fiveyear average. “We have less wheat being produced but higher consumption,” said Chumrau. That is reflected in the ending stocks-to-use ratio of 22 percent when excluding China and India, which is below the five-year-average of 24 percent. It would be the lowest stocks-to-use ratio for available supplies since 2007-08, when it fell to 19 percent. A falling stocks-to-use ratio generally means higher prices. Chumrau advised buyers to consider purchasing U.S. wheat today because any further restriction in supplies could considerably reduce the amount available to meet growing demand for the product. “It’s definitely going to be something that will affect markets if we start seeing some supply disruptions,” she said. Chumrau noted that Argentina’s agriculture minister has said the country is reducing acreage and Australia’s forecast is for a smaller crop than the last two years. However, there’s an even bigger risk in a more important production region. “We’re really watching the Black Sea because we don’t know yet what the extent of their winterkill is going to be. We’re already getting indica-


Acreage and production is down in several key wheat producing countries, including Argentina, Australia and the Black Sea. | FILE PHOTO tions out of those countries that their production is going to be lower than originally estimated.” SovEcon, a Russian grain analyst, is forecasting 50 million tonnes of wheat production in that country, which is down from the USDA’s forecast of 53 million tonnes. Ukraine’s national weather centre is forecasting 43 to 44 million tonnes of total grain production, which is below the USDA’s estimate of 45.8 million tonnes. USW spokesperson Steve Mercer isn’t drawing parallels to 2010, but he said it provides a good glimpse of what can happen to wheat prices if Russia decides to ban exports because of inadequate supplies. The USDA was forecasting 25 million tonnes of U.S. wheat exports that year. “After Russia closed its doors, we ended up selling 35 (million tonnes). We were all shocked at the impact on price,” he said. Mercer also pointed out the dete-


It’s definitely going to be something that will affect markets if we start seeing some supply disruptions.

Global wheat stocks are expected to drop by about 10 millon tonnes by the end of 2012-13, but production problems in the Black Sea region and Australia could push the number down further.

Wheat prices are heavily influenced by corn prices, and the corn crop is shrivelling in the field because of a lack of meaningful rainfall and high temperatures. The USDA rated 56 percent of the corn crop in good to excellent condition as of June 25. That’s down from 77 percent six weeks ago, which puts the USDA’s forecast of a record 166 bushel per acre yield in jeopardy. A smaller crop would push corn and wheat prices higher.

REGINA — The CWB has reached grain handling agreements with six more grain handling companies, including the country’s largest, Viterra. The new agreements, announced June 21 in Regina, mean western Canadian grain farmers who sell wheat or barley through CWB pools will now be able to deliver grain to roughly 100 additional delivery points across the West. The Viterra deal will also give the CWB commercial access to Viterra’s export terminal facilities and will not be affected by the proposed takeover of Viterra assets by Swiss commodities trader Glencore International. Earlier this year, the CWB reached similar grain handling agreements with Cargill, which operates 30 primary elevators in Western Canada, and the South West Terminal, located near Antelope, Sask. Last week’s announcement, which also included deals with Mission Terminal, West Coast Road and Rail, Delmar Commodities, Linear Grain, Agro Source and the CMI Terminal near Naicam, Sask., brings the total number of eligible delivery points for CWB customers to nearly 130 in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. The CWB is continuing to negotiate with other grain handling companies and will soon have nearly all of the primary elevator points available to take delivery of contracted grain, said CWB president Ian White. Agreements have yet to be finalized with four of Western Canada’s top six grain handlers : Louis Dreyfus, Parrish & Heimbecker, Paterson Grain and Richardson International. Richardson, Western Canada’s second largest handler, operates more than 50 country elevators and boasts a total storage capacity of nearly one million tonnes. White said negotiations with Viterra and other grain companies took longer than expected because of the complexity of agreements, which include transportation, handling and delivery arrangements. Some observers had suggested that prolonged negotiations would put more pressure on the CWB and would benefit grain handling companies by improving their bargaining positions. However, White said he didn’t feel grain companies were deliberately delaying the process. “I can say that all the grain companies have been fairly forthcoming in CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE






MGEX touts wheat hedging contract Promoting contract on Prairies | The Minneapolis Grain Exchange wants to be where Canadian wheat is hedged BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — A new era is about to open for the Minneapolis Grain Exchange. The exchange expects to become the hedging home for the giant western Canadian spring wheat crop. “So far we haven’t see any big roadblocks,” said James Facente, the MGEX’s director of market operations. “There are quite a few little nuances (between the Canadian and U.S. commercial markets), but nothing large.” A fierce battle broke out this winter for the hedging business of Canadian farmers, grain companies, grain buyers and speculators, pitting three major agricultural derivatives marketplaces against each other. The existing MGEX spring wheat contract has been put up against the Chicago Board of Trade’s soft red winter wheat contract and the Intercontinental Exchange’s new Winnipeg-based hard red spring wheat contract. With the ending of the CWB’s monopoly Aug. 1, many believe there will be significantly more futures and options trading for Canadian hard red spring wheat as the free market takes over risk management from the CWB’s pooling approach. The MGEX has been aggressively promoting its 129-year-old spring wheat futures contract to Canadian farmers. It has made many modifications to the contract to convince farmers and commercial grain players that its prices will accurately reflect cash market prices in Canada as well as in the United States. For instance, non-American wheat can now be delivered against the contract. The CWB was a major user of the MGEX, using it as a price basis for many of its Producer Payment Options and as a way to reduce the danger to the federal government’s financial guarantees. However, individual grain farmers did not use it much because CWB pool prices often diverged greatly from futures prices. Whether or not the Minneapolis contract truly represents the prairie

c o m m e rc i a l ma rke t p l a c e s t i l l remains to be seen. Many in the grain trade say forward commercial sales of prairie wheat have been lighter than usual because of the unsettled nature of the postCWB environment. No one knows what kinks might appear as the open market dawns. The prairie provinces and the U.S. northern Great Plains states grow the same type of wheat but generally different varieties. Both crops are high-protein spring wheat crops, but specification regimes have been different across the border. The two wheat crops are exported by different railways, and the American crop has an extra export outlet that the Canadian crop does not: the Gulf of Mexico. As well, the American crop relies on



their negotiations … acting in good faith with us,” he said. White said the CWB will compete directly with grain handling companies, but those companies need the volumes of grain that the CWB can attract through its pooling systems and other contracts. Farmer confidence in CWB contracts will increase as more grain companies agree to receive wheat and barley from the board, he added. Kevin Bender, president of the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association, said the CWB-Viterra agreement comes as welcome news to grain farmers, particularly those who have limited delivery options. With close to 100 delivery points across Western Canada, Viterra is ideally positioned to accommodate

the export market for only 48 percent of its sales, while the Canadian crop is overwhelmingly exported. Does any of this mean the Canadian crop will see significantly different pricing on the Prairies compared to North Dakota or Montana, which would make the MGEX’s Americanbased contract risky for Canadian users? Most analysts don’t expect significant cash market price spreads. The MGEX is pushing the idea that the Minneapolis contract isn’t just lumping in the Canadian crop with an American crop contract but is trying to develop a North American wheat contract. “Eventually, I just want it to be Nor th Amer ican spr ing wheat instead of Canadian and U.S.,” said Rita Maloney, the MGEX’s director of marketing.

CWB business. Bender said growers in northern B.C. and Alberta’s Peace River region were particularly concerned about the lack of delivery options. Until last week’s announcement,

farmers in those regions had only one delivery option — a Cargill facility located near Rycroft, Alta., 530 kilometres northwest of Edmonton. “I think the agreement will come as comforting news to a lot of farmers,”


“I’m trying to blur in my own mind that border because North Dakota goes right up into you and Montana goes right up into you.” Maloney said the MGEX hopes to solidify its futures contract as the world’s premium quality and protein wheat hedging tool, representing a huge pool of high protein wheat and a large part of the world’s export stocks. The MGEX contract already diverges from the CBOT soft red spring wheat contract and the Kansas City Board of Trade hard red winter wheat contract because of supply and demand fundamentals and world protein values. Maloney hopes more volume from increased Canadian use will strengthen that independent life. Canada’s reputation for high quality wheat could help the American

crop piggyback into higher values. “People love Canadian wheat,” said Maloney. “There are countries that will only buy Canadian spring wheat. It’s also our job to convince those people that we have great wheat, too.” MGEX analyst Joe Victor spent a lot of time on the Prairies this winter promoting the MGEX contract. He’s hoping increased use will allow the vast size of the spring wheat crop to bring higher visibility for its main derivative instrument. The Chicago winter wheat contract is by far the most traded wheat derivative, but the North American spring wheat crop is a much, much larger crop, larger even than the hard red winter wheat crop. “As (spring wheat trading) grows, maybe it’ll get a little more notice out in the world,” said Victor.

said Bender. “The timing might be a bit late, but late is better than never.” In Manitoba, grain farmer Doug Chorney also welcomed news of the Viterra agreement but suggested the timing of the announcement came far too late in the crop year. Chorney, president of Keystone Agricultural Producers, said farmers in his area were contracting grain early this year and were eager to take advantage of strong wheat prices. Many producers would have been willing to commit a portion of their crop to CWB pools, but the lack of handling agreements and limited delivery options convinced them to deal elsewhere, he said. “We’re operating in a pretty time sensitive environment,” said Chorney. “It (the Viterra agreement) is a good development for farmers, but it’s a little late for many and unfortunately, I

think it’s probably going to affect the CWB’s operations this year because of the time that it’s taken.” Gord Flaten, the CWB’s vice-president of grain procurement, said farmers are choosing CWB pools for a large portion of their cereals. He said favourable contract terms, such as the act of God clauses, and flexible payment arrangements are designed to minimize producer risk. “Farmers aren’t taking any risks by electing to use (CWB) contracts, and that is appealing,” White said. Producers need to act soon if they want to be involved in the pool because many contracts are filling up and they are on a first-come basis. Initial payments will likely be above the typical 65 percent because of strong marketing by the board, government guarantees and the potential backing of other financial parties, he added.






Soy meal may lose influence on canola: analyst

Supply management not fodder for EU trade deal

Soybean oil is expected to make a comeback soon BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Canola prices have been bolstered recently by strong global meal demand, but an analyst says that relationship could be headed for divorce. Harold Davis, author of Prairie Crop Charts, thinks it’s time for soybean meal to take a rest and allow soybean oil to resume its usual leadership role as the main driver behind canola prices. “I think the meal story is coming to an end,” he said. Chicago soybean meal prices “have gone through the roof ” in recent months while soybean oil languished in a bear market until last week. The rise in soybean meal prices coincided with China banning rapeseed meal shipments from India in January because it contained traces of malachite green, a hazardous chemical. Chinese officials are scheduled to visit India by the end of July to sort out the issue. Davis thinks there is a good chance the two countries can come to a resolution. “That could spell the end of that driver,” he said. Davis said there is a chance canola prices might test the downside of the market during the “indigestion” of switching from a meal-driven to an oil-driven market. Canola meal prices have been lifted by the surge in soybean meal values, but crushers say demand for the product has been rather lackluster. “Apart from the last four to six months, meal demand in the U.S. has actually been a little softer than it had been in 2008 and 2007,” said Pat Van Osch, vice-president of Richardson Oilseed Ltd. Global demand for meal products is strong, but Canadian crushers are more influenced by nearby North American demand for their product, and that has been static. Joel Horn, chief executive officer of Legumex Walker Inc., a Canadian grain company building a canola crush facility in Warden, Washington, recently told investors during the company’s annual general meeting the byproduct is still generating strong revenues for crushers. “On the canola meal side, we haven’t necessarily seen a growth in the amount of consumption but we’ve seen an increase in the price that the poultry farmers and the dairy consumers are willing to pay for canola meal,” he said. Van Osch isn’t concerned about the lack of growth in meal demand despite 1.7 million tonnes of additional canola crush capacity either planned or under construction in Western Canada and the northwest United States. “We’re focused more on the oil. Not that the meal isn’t important. You’ve still got to move 60 percent of your production out as meal,” he said. “But from a revenue perspective, you’re far more influenced by the demand of oil than you are by the demand of meal and that side of the equation certainly shows more strength than weakness.”


A new federal initiative could double U.S. pulse acres over the next eight years. | FILE PHOTO U.S. FARM BILL | AGRICULTURE POLICIES OUTLINED

U.S. health initiative ignites excitement in pulse industry Senate proposals | New funding would boost pulse research BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Peas, lentils, beans and chickpeas received a big boost in the Senate version of the 2012 U.S. farm bill. “For the pulse crops, there is a lot of really good provisions here in this bill on a lot of levels,” said Tim McGreevy, chief executive officer of the American Pulse Association. The Senate passed its version of the farm bill last week, which establishes national agriculture, nutrition, conservation and forestry policy for the next five years. The House of Representatives, which along with the Senate forms the two arms of the U.S. Congress, is expected to have its agriculture committee start work on its version of a new farm bill in mid-July. The two houses then have to develop with a compromise bill to vote on before it goes to the White House. Included in the Senate bill are two policies that McGreevy said will help expand the market for pulse crops grown in the United States and Canada if they make it through to the final version, which must still be approved by the House of Representatives and president Barack Obama. One is the Pulse Health Initiative, which authorizes research

grants of $25 million per year over the next five years for research exploring the health and nutrition benefits of pulses. It would be a sizeable increase over the less than $3 million now spent annually on pulse research in the U.S. “We’re confident that these crops will perform quite well, but we just don’t have much science to back it up,” said McGreevy.


$25 million PER YEAR FOR RESEARCH INTO HEALTH BENEFITS The other main focus will be to significantly improve pulse crops’ productive capabilities. “The truth is that yields on pulse crops have really lagged behind cereal grains,” he said. McGreevy believes the initiative could easily double U.S. pulse acres over the next eight years. Growers planted 528,000 acres of lentils, 468,000 acres of peas, 142,200 acres of chickpeas and 1.67 million acres of beans this year. McGreevy said the American

pulse industry is working closely with Pulse Canada to ensure there is no duplication with health and nutrition and sustainability research conducted in Canada. “We consider (research) to be pre-competitive. We’re trying to raise the boat for all pulse crops,” he said. The other important pulse initiative in the Senate bill was a last-minute amendment to create a pilot program to incorporate more pulses into national school breakfast and lunch programs, which feed 55 million children every school day. The program will provide the agriculture secretary with $10 million until 2017 to buy pulse crops for school meals. Few pulses are now used in those meals. “Burritos is the closest that we get to getting into the school meal programs,” said McGreevy. The pilot will determine which pulses are best suited to school breakfasts and lunches and how they influence the nutritional levels of those meals. “If successful, then we’ll have a customer for life. We’re trying to get at the younger people who need to eat more healthy foods,” said McGreevy. “I think it will have a significant impact on pulse consumption for the long term.”

Getting a deal in Canada-European Union free trade talks will not be a question of trading supply management protection for meat export access in Europe, says Canada’s chief negotiator. Steve Verheul, who once was Canada’s top agriculture negotiator at World Trade Organization talks, told the House of Commons trade committee last week that substantial agricultural texts have not yet been exchanged. However, he said that while significant differences remain or have not yet been negotiated, both sides insist they want a deal by the end of this year. The next negotiation is in Brussels next month. The EU has made it clear it wants better access in Canada for European cheese, but Verheul said Canada does not see meat access to Europe as a trade-off against European designs on Canada’s dairy market. “We’re responding to the EU’s most offensive issue, which is government procurement,” he said. “We’re going a considerable way on issues related to intellectual property that are also of concern to them, and we’re expecting the balance to be achieved through the achievement of greater market access for us when it comes to those types of products, including beef and pork.” Later, he said the Conservative government has remained clear in its instruction to negotiators in the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement (CETA) with the EU that supply management protection for dairy, chicken and eggs are not on the table for compromise. “Certainly within the CETA negotiation, there will be no threat to the system of supply management,” he said. “It remains as it is now. I’ve seen no flexibility on that issue with respect to any agreements.” As one of the most sensitive issues in any trade negotiation, agriculture is usually one of the last topics raised and often in the end is sidelined because of its domestic political sensitivities on all sides. Verheul said negotiator instructions have not changed. “We’ve consistently protected supply management throughout all of our international trade agreements,” he said. At the end of April, EU ambassador to Canada Matthias Brinkmann told Ottawa journalists that there is a clear link in the negotiations between prairie beef and pork exporter hopes for better European access and Europe’s interest in the Canadian cheese market. “It’s the overall balance which is important,” Brinkmann said. “For the Prairies, the beef issue is a big one and there will be no deal without dairy. It’s almost a foregone conclusion.”





Potential crude oil price meltdown bad for grain, oilseeds MARKET WATCH


Corn and soybean prices are connected to ethanol and biodiesel prices


ould a melt down in oil prices drag down crop values? It is worth pulling our heads out of weather forecasts and supply and demand reports to consider whether outside forces could deliver a blow against agricultural commodities. I was shocked into this after listening to an interview with Jeff Kennedy, chief commodity analyst at Elliott Wave International. Elliot Wave analysis is a strictly technical way of looking at the market. It identifies patterns that are linked to human psychology and the way people react to market events. Kennedy said last week that West Texas Intermediate crude oil will test the $38 per barrel low set in late 2008 and then pause before falling anoth-

er 50 percent to the low last seen in 2001. He also believes the U.S. dollar will continue to rise. Ke n n e d y ’s a na l y s i s i s o n t h e extreme end of market opinion, but he is not alone. If this plays out, it would be hard for grain prices to remain where they are because of the connection between oil and corn and soybeans due to ethanol and biodiesel. Also, such a downdraft in crude would indicate a major retreat from all risk assets, such as commodities. Elliot Wave considers neither supply and demand fundamentals nor economic forces in its analysis, but the likely spark that would drive oil down to such low levels would be Europe’s failure to find a solution to its debt and slow growth problems, leading to a collapse into recession. However, there are also supply and demand reasons for the recent weakness in oil prices. The weak international economy is slowing demand and supplies are up. Already, oil is down more than 25 percent from its recent peak set in late February. In the United States, the world’s largest oil consumer, crude oil inventories as of June 15 increased to the highest level since 1990. Horizontal drilling and fracking has caused U.S. domestic oil pro-

duction to jump 25 percent since 2008 and now stands at 6.35 million barrels a day, the most since February 1999. Supply from the Organization of Petroleum Producing Countries is running nearly two million barrels per day above its own production ceiling target of 30 million barrels per day. Canada’s production is expected to climb from three million barrels per day in 2011 to 3.8 million by 2015, 4.7 million by 2020 and 6.2 million by 2030, according to the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers. Philip Verleger, economist and founder of PK Verleger LLC, who has a long and distinguished career in government and academia, including a stint as David E. Mitchell/ EnCana professor of management at the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business, is another analyst who believes oil prices are about to tumble to $40 per barrel. In an interview last week on Bloomberg Television, he said the Saudis will keep pumping at the highest rate in decades rather than reduce production because they want oil prices to fall to aid the world economy and to put economic and political pressure on fellow oil exporters Iran (over its nuclear program) and Russia (over its support for Syria).

prices there. Beef trim prices were also lower, and the two events pressured Canadian prices off their recent highs. Commercial auctions reported that half to two-thirds of the offering were butcher cattle. Butcher cows fell $3-$3.50 per cwt. from the previous week’s records. D1, D2 ranged $75-$88 to average $81.50 and D3s ranged $65-$79 to average $72.43. Rail bids fell $6 to $148-$154. Butcher bulls fell 50 cents but are $12.50 higher than the same time last year. The northwest U.S. is getting dry, which could weaken export demand. Non-fed values will likely fall $2-$3 this week.


Verleger also thinks that a fairly rapid move to fuel efficient cars in the U.S., the U.S. ethanol mandate, soaring North American natural gas and oil production and greater use of cheap natural gas as a vehicle fuel will make the U.S. a net exporter of energy in 10 years and usher in a long period of low cost energy for the U.S. Oil and grain prices do not move in lockstep, but they have closely followed the same trend since about 2005.

We can’t ignore the following: • global oilseed stocks are expected to fall by the end of 2012-13 • a revival in corn stocks depends on getting a record crop in the U.S. • the global wheat surplus looks like it will be much less burdensome than forecasted a few months ago However, if oil and other markets crash, grain won’t be able to avoid the chaos.

CANFAX REPORT CANADIAN FED PRICES RISE Rising corn prices due to hot, dry Midwest weather and the weakening world economy drove Chicago fed futures lower, which pressured Canadian cash cattle. The Canfax weekly average fed steer price was $109.83 per hundredweight, down $3.13, and heifers were $109.15, down $3.24. Almost all dressed trade was $185$186 per cwt. delivered. Packers have had a significant supply of captive cattle recently, which has also weakened the cash market. No significant Saskatchewan cash trade was reported. There was light U.S. buyer interest, but only a few Canadian cattle traded south. Not all cattle sold and some will be added to this week’s show list. Volume was 16,489 head, down 14 percent from the previous week, and down 29 percent from last year. The Alberta fed cash-to-futures basis widened to -$9.13. Weekly fed exports to June 9 were 6,128 head, up 39 percent from the Memorial Day shortened week. So far this year, exports to the United States are down two percent from last year. Weekly western Canadian fed slaughter to June 16 at 39,462 head was down one percent from the previous week. Projected marketings into July are expected to be steady, but beef demand beyond the July long weekend remains uncertain. Prices will face downward pressure.

COWS FALL FROM HIGHS The dry weather in the U.S. is pushing more cows to slaughter, lowering

CANADIAN FEEDERS RISE Rising corn prices are raising feeding costs and lowering Chicago feeder futures prices. However, western Canadian feeder prices rose last week, with steers up $1.95 per cwt., while heifers were up 73 cents. The spread between steers and heifers has widened for four weeks and now stands at $11.92 per cwt. The few uniform packages of fallborn calves at market are testing the top end of the Canfax price range. Auction volume was 11,039 head, down 17 percent from the previous week. Weekly feeder exports to June 9 totalled 3,138, down 14 percent. Feeder exports to the U.S. have already surpassed last year’s total. Western Canadian feeder prices will likely fall, if futures continue to fall and barley follows corn higher. However, despite current feeding losses, demand for quality bunk replacements should remain strong.

U.S. cut-out values fell $1-$2 on moderate demand and offering. Orders for the July 4 Independence Day weekend are mostly filled and follow-up demand is questionable, given America’s economic problems. Beef prices might fall, but recent strong pork cut-out values will limit the fall. The U.S. Choice-Select record spread is widening, which analysts attribute to the new Walmart Choice beef program that includes TV ads that say consumers can buy restaurant quality steaks at its meat counters. Weekly Canadian AAA cutouts to June 15 were $199.04 per cwt., up from $198.08, and AAs were $195.06,

up from $193.04. The Montreal wholesale for delivery this week was anticipated steady at $210-$212 per cwt.

U.S. CATTLE ON FEED SURPRISE Declining, dry pastures in May caused producers to put 15 percent more cattle in U.S. feedlots than last year at the same time. The U.S. cattle-on-feed report June 22 showed May placements at 2.087 million head, the largest placement total for the month since 2.159 million in 2007. Traders expected a 13 percent increase. The number was also increased by more Mexican cattle going to southwestern U.S. feedlots as persistent drought hurt pastures there.

The high placements drove the June 1 total up to 11.082 million, up two percent from last year and the most since 2007. Traders expected a 0.6 percent increase. Marketings in May were up only one percent, well below traders’ forecast of almost five percent. Analysts attributed the low number to week fed cattle prices in May.

WP LIVESTOCK REPORT HOG PRICES STEADY Tight market-ready hog supply and strong pork prices continued to support hog prices in the United States. The tight supply is the result of rapid weight gain earlier this year, which allowed producers to market hogs, early, causing today’s shortage. Packer margins were negative despite rising pork cutouts. U.S. frozen pork supplies at the end of May were 636.08 million pounds, down four percent from the previous month but up 16 percent from last year. The amount was less than the 643.3 million lb. that traders had expected. Iowa-southern Minnesota held at about $75.50 US per hundredweight June 22, the same as the previous week.

U.S. pork carcass cut-out values rose to $100.81, up from $94.12 on June 15. Analysts expect pork demand will drop at these prices. The U.S. federal weekly slaughter was estimated at 1.954 million, down from 1.957 million the previous week.

BISON PRICES SUPPORTED The Canadian Bison Association said marketers say they have adequate supplies for the summer. There are also reports that some marketers are marketing trim at discounted prices. There may be inventory build‐up of some cuts, but with anticipated tight supplies of animals to process in the future, the inventory does not appear to be problematic. Grade A bulls in the desirable

weight range were $3.65-$3.90 Cdn per lb. hot hanging weight. Grade A heifers were $3.65-$3.90. Animals outside the desirable weight range and parameters may be discounted. Slaughter cows and bulls ranged from $1.60-$2.50. In the live market, heifers born in 2011 were $2-$2.30 per lb. and bulls were $2.20-$2.40. Bulls and heifers born in 2010 were $1.90-$2.

LAMB PRICES DOWN Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported that 1,133 sheep and lambs and eight goats sold June 18. All sheep, goats and light lambs sold steady. Heavy lambs traded at prices $5-$7 cwt. lower.

Food safety changes need backing for plan to work


t’s about time that Canadian food producers enjoyed oversight legislation that did not make them, in some respects, second class citizens in their own country. Imported food has generally flowed into Canada with less evaluation than food that is locally grown or processed. And there is much to evaluate: Canada imports food from 190 countries, amounting to more than $28 billion in 2010. Imported food should be at least as strictly regulated as Canadian grown and processed food, from both safety and competition perspectives. While not all imports compete directly with Canadian products, there is considerable crossover with food ranging from bakery products to fat and oil. The Conservative government’s recent legislation, the Safe Foods for Canadians Act, is partly intended to improve on imported food inspection and regulation. It will consolidate several other pieces of legislation to theoretically provide a more streamlined food safety process. The act, which has passed second reading in the Senate, came out of the Weatherill report on the 2008 listeriosis outbreak. It recommended that the government “modernize and simplify federal legislation and regulations that significantly affect food safety.” This looks like it may be a piece of legislation that, at least in intent and theory, the government is managing to get right. Even some farmers agree with it. Ontario Federation of Agriculture president Mark Wales recently described it as an improvement. “Levelling 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.” This has long been an issue. As the Canadian Food Inspection Agency points out, imports pose control challenges because there is less information on, or direct control over, foreign manufacturing processes and the resulting products.

Under the new legislation, importers will require a licence from the CFIA, complete with a licence fee. The licence will not be a simple identification tool. It will signify that the importer has developed a written preventive food safety control plan, which outlines “the actions and measures that the importer takes to make sure their food is safe and complies with Canadian legislation,” says the CFIA. In addition, the importer will have to maintain its records at a Canadian location, have a written recall plan and notify the CFIA within 24 hours if any public hazard issues arise. Another potentially beneficial part of the act is that it will give the CFIA authority to certify Canadian food for export. Because official certification is being demanded by importing countries, this could smooth the path for food exporters and open up new markets. However, the question remains whether there are enough CFIA inspectors to put teeth into the legislation. After the federal budget was released in March, there was considerable outcry about a reduction in front-line inspectors, coming largely from the Public Service Alliance of Canada, the union representing the inspectors. The CFIA has said that the number of field inspection staff was 3,534 in March, 500 more than six years ago. However, PSAC has said that many of those additional inspectors were auditing reports and not actually inspecting food. If there are too few inspectors, the legislation will be relatively meaningless. It is also not yet clear how much more inspection, if any, will take place. PSAC estimates the present amount at two percent, and those inspections are mainly to check for biosecurity rather than safety of consumption. The theory behind the Safe Foods Act has merit. The government has to make certain that it also works in practice.

and young (female) Liberals, drools all around. It worked out OK because starting from June 25, 1968, the Liberals under Trudeau enjoyed 16 years in power. Now, son Justin is being promoted as the next leader of the muchdiminished Liberal Party. Again, for those who see the Liberal Party as a vehicle to power, drools all around. The name, the charisma, the political connections, the natural instincts, the star power. This time, though, it probably is wasted. There is no indication yet of depth, ideas or any ability of Trudeau Jr. to rescue a party in dire straits. Meanwhile, for enemies of the protectionist supply management system, last week was a week to enjoy a drool or two.

A confluence of events seems to indicate it is under attack. After months of criticism and opponent campaigns, last week was the icing on the cake for the critics. Influential former Liberal MP Martha Hall Findlay produced an explosive report that called for the abolition of the supply management system. The same day, new Ottawa policy think tank the Macdonald-Laurier Institute issued a scathing report calling supply management an attack on poor Canadians. The same week, Canada was invited to join Pacific Rim trade talks that had supply management critics joyfully speculating that agreeing to negotiate an end to import tariffs, price setting and the bureaucracy of production controls had to be part of the deal.

Among the supply managementsupporting crowd, there was fear that Conservatives had sold them out. Among the anti-supply management crowd there was much drooling as the stars seemed to be aligning to finally get rid of the system that a critic in Ottawa last week called “the last dinosaur walking the earth.” They should probably hold that thought. For reasons beyond ideology, beyond politics, beyond electoral prospects, this Conservative government is unlikely to abandon supply management. For reasons not entirely clear, the Conservatives have become the party of supply management — perhaps because they have decided it works, that the farmers who benefit from it are never a drain on government

funds and those industries are stable. Or maybe it is politics, a wish to regain some traction in Quebec. Whatever it is, the critics who imagine that after the CWB, supply management is next have little to support their case. Trade negotiations will be a challenge for the government. Business lobbyists will continue to advocate for an end to protectionism in agriculture (ignoring what most other countries do). Hall Findlay might even make the Liberal party less a predictable supply management supporter. But at this point, there is not a shred of evidence the Conservatives are wavering. Preston Manning, son of an Alberta premier and dairy farmer, must be shaking his head.






Supply management key to food security

Gasoline prices not following oil price drop



anada is a trading nation, blessed with abundant natural resources and a skilled workforce. On average, we export 80 percent of our farming and manufacturing production. While trade is important, we cannot negotiate away those agricultural institutions that give us a competitive advantage to simply increase our market access — most notably, our system of supply management. Simply put, supply management is vital, not just to farmers and rural communities but to all Canadians. It is at once a buy local program and key to Canada’s food security and food sovereignty. As we continue negotiations toward the Canada-Europe Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement and as we start our negotiations for entry into the TransPacific Partnership, it is vital that we have this conversation if only to ensure that Canadians understand the important role supply management plays in our economy and agricultural sector. More than 40 years ago, a Liberal minister of agriculture, Eugene Whelan, oversaw the creation of marketing boards that administer the quota system instituted to provide stable, predictable prices for dairy, chicken, broiler hatching eggs, turkey and eggs. He knew then what we know now — that stability is essential in our modern agricultural sector. Across the world, governments recognize the unpredictable and volatile nature of agriculture and acknowledge the necessity of government intervention.

Canada’s dairy, poultry and egg producers earn more than $10 billion in farm cash receipts. | FILE PHOTO Supply management is a system in which domestic demand is predicted and controlled through a quota, and the price is pre-set and adjusted to reflect the cost of production. This guarantees that hardworking Canadian farmers get a workable price for their produce while coming at no additional cost to the taxpayer. It has often been said that farmers do not want to earn their income from a government cheque in the mailbox. Canada’s dairy, poultry and egg producers earn more than $10 billion in farm cash receipts, and the

industries provide almost 107,000 direct jobs to the Canadian economy and employ more than 300,000 Canadians altogether. Across the country, 17,238 farms contribute $24.5 billion to Canada’s gross domestic product and pay $4.8 billion in taxes. There is no doubt that Canada’s participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership can create new markets, yet admittedly, there is significant resistance internationally to our entry. Critics at home and abroad argue supply management is an

unfair trade advantage other countries don’t enjoy, either unaware or ignoring the fact that agriculture in countries like the United States, among the vocal opponents of supply management, rely heavily on government subsidies. Critics also argue that supply management comes at the expense of the consumer and make the misleading argument that lower-income Canadians are disadvantaged. Twenty-one cents from a $2.25 glass of milk at a restaurant goes to the farmer, 11 cents to the processor and $1.93 to the restaurant. Without supply management, the risk of the farmer getting a lower price is significant, while it is wholly unlikely that the price charged by the restaurants would drop. In fact, a litre of milk is more expensive in New Zealand, which dismantled its supply management system, than in Canada, while its farmers are receiving among the lowest prices for milk in the world. In 2005, the House of Commons unanimously passed a motion supporting supply management, and all political parties have recently reaffirmed their support. It is important as we move forward and expand our market access that we keep our trade advantages, such as supply management. It is also important that Canadians understand exactly what the system entails so they can make informed decisions when they hear criticism of the system by Canadians, including former cabinet ministers, who well know supply management’s benefit to Canadians.

Farm equipment will get smarter, not bigger HURSH ON AG



ow big can we go? It’s a question many producers ask each year as they attend Canada’s Farm Progress Show in Regina. When I first started wandering around the show back in the early 1980s, I remember marvelling at the size of the tractors, cultivators and combines. Who could afford this stuff? Surely, the practical limits of size would soon be reached. Like many small to moderate-sized farmers, I’m well behind the technology and size curve. In my case, I’m using equipment that was state of the

art 10 to 20 years ago. At the time, it was considered pretty large. I’ve no doubt that technology will continue to advance, and fortunately much of that technology can be retrofitted onto older machines. However, I’m still waiting for the raw size to reach a plateau. Is it practical and efficient to haul a seed cart that has capacity for more than 1,000 bushels? Fewer stops to fill with seed and fertilizer is a big time saver. Most farmers wish they could afford to buy and pull a bigger cart, but more than 1,000 bu.? At some point, the horsepower and fuel required and the potential problems with soil compaction should put a limit on cart size. Saving a couple of hours on fill time every day is great, but it needs to be weighed against the cost. And what about drills that are 80 or 90 feet wide? They may be fine for wide-open land with no sloughs or other obstructions, but much of the prairie landscape isn’t like that. And

the equipment still has to be able to fold up so it can be transported on a road. Equipment size isn’t the limiting factor on a lot of farms — it’s the labour to make everything happen. Treating workers well and paying them competitively can reduce the money spent on ever-larger iron. And there are other ways to gain time during seeding and harvest. Field peas can be seeded early and crops such as barley and oats can be seeded later. And if you can get winter wheat into the ground in the fall, it reduces pressure in the spring. A mix of crops also staggers harvest work. Field peas or red lentils might be the first crop off, with canaryseed and chickpeas being the last. Some operations seed only 50 acres for every foot of drill width. For instance, they may have a 60 foot drill for 3,000 acres. Others may do 150 or even 200 acres for every foot of drill. To accomplish this, the outfit typically has to run 24 hours a day during

much of the seeding season. Interestingly, it isn’t always the operations with the lowest acres per foot that finish first. Breakdowns, family dynamics, poor decisions, lack of labour and off-farm distractions can all take a toll on seeding progress. You can buy a bigger drill, but it’s better to just address the issues. Twenty or 30 years from now, if there are still enough farmers around to justify a Farm Progress Show, will the air drills be 200 feet wide with 2,000 bu. carts? I doubt it. More likely, the drills will be a moderate size with several outfits run remotely by one operator sitting in front of a bank of monitors. Efficiency gains will continue, but increasingly those gains are going to come from technological advances rather than bigger iron. Kevin Hursh is an agricultural journalist, consultant and farmer.

Falling oil prices aren’t a good sign that the global economy is recovering


ere is how Statistics Canada opened its commentary on the consumer price index June 22. “Consumer prices rose 1.2 percent in the 12 months to May, following a two percent increase in April. This 0.8 percentage point difference was mostly attributable to declines for gasoline prices.” Ap p a re n t l y , g a s o l i n e p r i c e s dropped 2.3 percent, following 22 months of increases. Really? You would not have suspected a drop significant enough to bring down the CPI based on the pump prices I have seen, and I suspect it’s not much different wherever you are. The last price I drove by last week was still $1.259 per litre. I would not mind higher pump prices quite so much if the oil price was holding up its end, which is an important economic factor in Saskatchewan and Alberta. But oil prices have been sagging for weeks and managed to duck under 80 bucks June 22 on the NYME. Brent crude was holding up at about $90 per barrel. In theory, oil has fallen 20 percent in the last year, not 2.3 percent. We’ve heard it all before. Despite a falling oil price, there’s not enough refinery capacity, or there’s plenty of gas in the pipeline that was refined at an earlier, higher price. There’s always a great reason why pump prices fall much more slowly than the oil price. The falling oil price is obviously not a good sign of a recovering global economy. Slower growth in China, a U.S. recovery that is at best limping along and the debt-mired disaster that is the euro zone are making things look a little less wonderful every day that goes by. If you want to look at the bright side, however, that little (or large) pile of debt is not about to grow any time soon, unless one blows more cash on a new chunk of land. There is no way Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney is about to throw Canadians to the interest rate wolves with all this going on. His latest view was that there was a “sharp deterioration in financial conditions,” and that was before oil dropped below $80. For now, I’ll take lower gas prices, if and when they ever come, and a cheap mortgage. But this economy is eventually going to bite us if the Europeans don’t pull it together.

The contemptuous treatment of Canadian farmers-citizens by the (Stephen) Harper Conservatives is unbelievable. It should make most who voted Tory cringe in shame. Harper, (Gerry) Ritz and (David) Anderson destroyed the Canadian Wheat Board, which was operated by a board of farmers elected by farmers, paid for by farmers and worked on the behalf of all farmers. They reduced the role of the Canadian Grain Commission, which protected farmers from unscrupulous grading by grain companies. They eliminated the Canadian

Food Inspection Agency’s role in protecting consumers from unsafe drugs and food products, false advertising, and enforcing food labelling, all for the benefit of consumers. More recently they cut the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration, which operates 85 community p a s t u re s, w at e r ma nag e m e nt, grants for wells and dugouts and provides trees for farms, community development, municipal governments, etc. These pastures continually moved their bulls around, thus eliminating the need for farmers-ranchers buying expensive breeding bulls every few years. Ritz had the gall to announce that the government was setting up a $25

million grant … to boost the amount of grain shipped through the Port of Churchill. Who will get this money? Certainly not the farmers. It will go to the likes of Pioneer Grain (Richardson) with terminals at Vancouver, Thunder Bay and Prince Rupert: Alliance Grain Terminal (Vancouver and Thunder Bay); Parrish & Heimbecker (Vancouver and Thunder Bay); Cargill (Vancouver, Thunder Bay and Prince Rupert); Viterra (Vancouver, Thunder Bay and Prince Rupert); ADM (Thunder Bay) and OmniTrax Rail.

they have fired, the changes to the Employment Insurance and increased eligibility for OAS from 65 to 67, and they have proven, without a doubt, that their loyalty lies with the corporate sector of the world and not the Canadian citizen. At the same time they have reduced the corporate tax rate from 21 percent (2007) to 15 percent (2012). Small wonder they have deficit budgets. Joyce Neufeld, Waldeck, Sask.

SUPPLY MANAGED BENEFITS To the Editor: I would like to comment on Mr. (Terry) James’ letter to the editor (WP May 17) on supply management. While supply management does keep an orderly flow of management products (milk, eggs and poultry) to consumers, it also protects consumers as all these products are inspected for pathogens that could cause illness or death. Look south where there is no supply management and few inspections: 47 million get food poisoning, 300,000 people are hospitalized every year from food poisoning and 5,000 people die. Many of these deaths are from milk, milk products, eggs, poultry and meat. Figures are from the U.S. CDC. Leaving aside the inspection of food, let’s look at cost increases Mr. James blames on supply management. The only way I see to compare our supply management products prices is with countries similar to ours who have no supply management, in Canadian dollars: • New Zealand — milk, $3.75 per two litres; eggs, $3.20 per dozen; chicken breasts, $16 per kilogram • Australia: milk, $1.40 per litre; eggs, $3.50 per dozen; chicken breasts, $13 per kg. How do these prices compare to our prices? I’ll let you judge. I am sure you will want to quote U.S. prices, which are lower than ours. However, do you want to risk hospital or death for a few dollars? I don’t. Put the blame where it belongs, on the middlemen and the chain stores. For example, apples, for which farmers get 15 to 20 cents a pound, sell in the stores at $1.69 to $1.99. How many of your poor people can afford  “an apple a day?” That’s 700 to 900 percent profit. Most farmers make a reasonable working man’s living, and supply management gives them that. We Canadians have some of the cheapest, safest food in the world. In 1961, Canadians spent 19.1 percent of their income on food, today that figure is 9.3 percent. Be happy, Mr. James, we have it good. Mervyn Coles, Nelson, B.C.

WALL PRIORITIES To the Editor: Saskatchewanians need to question premier (Brad) Wall’s priorities that destroy progressive programs that led to Saskatchewan’s leadership role in social services, health, labour and arts in Canada, all with-


out constituent consultation: promised no privatization of crowns and then sold their assets and took their profits; and took school boards’ educational funding responsibilities, refuses to fund increased enrolments and sends an ad, at taxpayers’ expense, refuting the boards’ requests. Despite its mandate to fund the two school systems, Wall chooses to provide education grants to private religious schools. His government oversees the removal of 345 assistants that provided classroom help for special needs students. Wall took $8 million from the Station 20 core community project to provide needed health, training, library and nutritional food services but can find $1.7 million to fund condo development on the Whitecap Reserve — not his jurisdiction. His cuts to the “revenue returning�

film industry, the Saskatchewan Arts Council, the Western Development Museum, residential welfare cases and Nipawin’s support program for First Nation’s youth are despicable. The latter saved millions in social, health and justice costs. Wall (is) privatizing surgeries, reading of CT and MRI scans and laundry services. Minister (Bill) Boyd signed trade agreements, TILMA with British Columbia and Alberta and North West Economic Agreement with six states, B.C. and Alberta. The ramifications of these are yet to be realized. Wall is also developing non-renewable resources with reckless abandon of environmental issues. I’m tired of his incoherent ramblings “full of sound and fury signifying nothing.� Joan Bell, Saskatoon, Sask.

LYME DISEASE AN ISSUE To the Editor: It has come to my attention that Lyme disease is a prevalent issue in Manitoba. Over the past legislative session, numerous cases have come to my attention in which testing and treatment plans have proven to be insufficient, leaving patients to suffer. Many patients have been forced to travel outside the province to be properly diagnosed, and with that diagnosis, can be treated. Without early treatment, this disease can mask other devastating health conditions, and ruin a lifestyle. While I have the utmost confidence in the doctors of this province, I am aware that the infrastructure that this government has to deal with this disease is lacking.

The state of Minnesota can diagnose over 1,000 cases a year, while this province can only diagnose 25. We are all aware that deer ticks do not stop at the border and check in, so legitimate questions arise when we see cases in this province that are improperly diagnosed. My office has received dozens of cases where treatment and diagnosis plans have failed. Cases like Mason French of Dominion City, whose mother had to take him to four doctors to receive a proper diagnosis, or Marie Hughes, who after years of fighting the bureaucracy still does not have a proper diagnosis, or Michelle Miller, who has to go on $2,000 IV treatments to curb the symptoms, provide a snapshot into this disease and the effects it can have on someone. I want to encourage all those affected to contact my office with their story, as I feel that this government

needs to hear the importance of this issue, and needs to properly act on it. Cliff Graydon, MLA, Emerson, Man.

Never too late to right wrongs SPIRITUAL VIGNETTES

What do YOU need?



t’s never too late to right a wrong and to do it honourably. I think of the story of a woman who worked at the same place for 38 years as secretary-bookkeeper. Late on a Friday afternoon she was told her services where no longer required. It was the only job she had ever had. Even more devastating was she was single and no other employees were present that late in the day. The employer was obviously more concerned over his own task of “belling the cat� than he was over the wellbeing of the devastated employee. His thoughtlessness inflicted cruel results that distorted the woman’s outlook for several years. That precipitating incident happened several years ago. Gradually there have been healing moments that helped her move forward. She won the lawsuit for her mistreatment. Colleagues came together to express their appreciation for her and her work. And her own spiritual resources nurtured her. It was at first hard for us to believe, but there is evidence now that it’s never too late to right a wrong, and to do it with honour. She was informed by the current director where she worked that she was to be granted the highest honour the organization could bestow in recognition of the many years of service she so willingly gave. I applaud the decision-makers for their wisdom and willingness to see that justice prevails. I tell this story because I’m proud of the key people involved in what is happening. But I tell it also because each of us have had the experience of being on one end of this type of situation. No matter how much time has passed, wrongs can be righted and forgiveness given.  This kind of truth lies at the heart of the Gospel message.

Habitat dwindles for barn swallow Designation questioned | Some producers want it removed from the threatened species list BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

The familiar swooping flight and forked tail of the barn swallow are not as common as they used to be. A year ago, the Committee on the State of Endangered Wildlife in Canada added the species to its list of threatened birds. Some have questioned COSEWIC’s decision, including the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association. Producers at the recent SSGA annual meeting voted in favour of a resolution to lobby for the bird’s removal from the COSEWIC threatened list. Those who spoke to the motion said there appear to be just as many if not more barn swallows than there have been in the past. Christian Artuso, manager of the Bird Studies Canada Manitoba program, said it’s true the bird is still common, but it was once abundant. “There have been massive declines at a precipitous rate and if this trend continues it would be devastating,” he said in an e-mail. “The reason it is still common is only because of the former abundance from which it is falling.” He said the declines appear particularly steep in Eastern Canada and the far western regions of Western Canada, but not so much on the Prairies. “This is why many people in Mani-

toba and Saskatchewan, for example, have a hard time understanding this listing,” he said. Gary Seib, general manager of Nature Saskatchewan, said the problem is habitat. Barn swallows prefer to live inside wooden buildings. “Generally, there are far fewer farm buildings out there,” he said. “The countryside used to be dotted with wooden grain bins and there aren’t nearly as many big barns.” He also said the barn swallow decline is happening in concert with fewer insect-eating birds overall. Insect control programs are likely one factor. The threatened status means the swallow is likely to become endangered if nothing is done to reverse the trend. COSEWIC said the barn swallow population has declined up to 76 percent in the last 40 years.


Calgary Stampede Foundation receives historic centennial gift BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

A Calgary businessperson has donated a portion of the historic OH Ranch to the Calgary Stampede Foundation. Bill Siebens donated 8,000 acres, the buildings and the OH brand to commemorate the Stampede’s centennial. The gift is worth $11 million. “I thought it was a good time to remind everyone what a special institution it is. I see it as an important link to Alberta’s past,” said Siebens, who has lived in Alberta for 54 years. He also owns the neighbouring Tongue Creek Ranch. Daryl “Doc” Seaman bought the

land in 1987. He had the 16,000 acre site designated heritage rangeland to protect it from development and turned over its management to the Nature Conservancy of Canada in 2008. Siebens bought the ranch after Seaman died in 2009 with the intention of turning it over to the Stampede foundation to preserve the property’s environmental and cultural heritage. The OH is a working ranch west of Longview and south of Calgary in the foothills. Stampede president Mike Casey said the foundation will develop a plan to continue it as a working operation and a heritage site. An environmental management plan is already in place, and the Stampede does not

want to change that, he added. “We will take it slowly and do the right thing,” Casey said. The ranch was founded in 1883 and has had five owners, including entrepreneur Pat Burns, one of the four founders of the Stampede. The OH brand was first registered in 1881 to Orville Hawkins Smith and Lafayette French, who raised cattle on the site. The ranch is protected to sustain native fescue rangelands by maintaining grassland ecology and through the use of grazing. It is not a recreational site. The land is home to a number of rare species and is beside a grizzly bear habitat in Kananaskis Country, a provincially protected area.

Hall Findlay calls policy regressive, expensive Diminished dairy influence cited | Liberal MP says politicians have little to fear from changes to supply managed systems BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Former Liberal MP and trade critic Martha Hall Findlay issued an explosive call June 21 for an end to supply management. An hour later, MPs gathered in the House of Commons down the street from her news conference for the last question period before the 12-week summer break. There was not a single question to the government or by government MPs about her call for an end to the 40-year-old system of production controls, import tariffs and cost-ofproduction pricing. Findlay could not have been surprised. She told an Ottawa news conference that there is an unspoken political agreement that the issue shall not be raised, mainly because of the fear that any challenge to the supply management system would carry a strong political price. “What has frustrated me over the years is the number of politicians who have said behind the scenes that we understand supply management has to go but we don’t think we can, we are worried about the vote, we don’t want to lose the next election,” she said. Hall Findlay, in a study published by the University of Calgary School of Public Policy, argued that electorally, politicians have nothing to fear. There are fewer than 13,000 dairy farmers and in every riding, they are vastly outnumbered by farmers who export and by tens of thousands of voters with no direct attachment to the industry. She called supply management a regressive policy that costs Canadian families hundreds of dollars more each year for basic commodities such as dairy, poultry and eggs. Poor Canadian families are particularly

She called on sectors hurt by the policy to “rally around” a call to dismantle it. Hall Findlay said dairy’s voter influence has fallen dramatically since the system was created 40 years ago and no longer determines electoral results. Even if the Conservatives dismantled supply management and “all hell breaks loose” and dairy farmers and their supporters vote against the government, Conservatives still would win a majority based on last election results, she said. “Put simply, the dairy farmers, as wonderful as they are, do not represent the same political force they

might once have,” she said. “Politicians should do what is right and not what they think is politically necessary.” The former MP, defeated in the 2011 election but hoping for a return, proposed that Canada do what Australia did 12 years ago: end tariffs and price setting but use a consumer retail levy to compensate dairy farmers during an extended transition period. While politicians were largely silent, supply management opponents in media and business piled on with predictions that the study published by a potential Liberal leadership candidate and trade critic could be a game changer.

There were columns about Canada’s trade-suppressing supply management system and newspaper editorials on the issue. Jack Mintz, director of the conservative University of Calgary School of Public Policy that has been a major influence on the current Conservative government, told the news conference the government’s ability to end the 70-year-old CWB sales monopoly this year is a symbol of how agricultural sacred cows can be tackled. “On the supply management issue, I think we are at a very important j u n c t u re i n C a n a d i a n h i s t o r y because we can ask ourselves if we want to be a major trading country diversifying trade and looking at


emerging markets or are we going to be a country that is going to be like a turtle that puts its head and feet back into its shell,” he said. “Supply management is an issue I think we have to deal with.” He said getting rid of the system would be a milestone similar to Canada’s 1988 free trade deal with the United States. “I think this report is also a milestone in Canadian history, and I do hope we are sowing the seeds of change.” The supply-managed sectors issued a statement that said Hall Findlay’s analysis was misleading. For the most part, the politicians steered clear.



MP spreads false information: marketing agencies

Lawsuit pending over Alta. oil spill


Canada’s supply management marketing agencies are accusing a Liberal politician of using misleading numbers and false arguments as she promotes the end of the system. Last week, former Liberal MP and trade critic Martha Hall Findlay issued a University of Calgar ysponsored report that argued supply management penalizes consumers with higher prices, jeopardizes poor families who have to pay hundreds of dollars more each year for milk and hurts Canada’s trade interests and agricultural exporting sectors. Hall Findlay is expected to announce soon that she will run for the second time for the federal Liberal leadership. She said last week dairy product prices are as much as three times higher in Canada than in the United States and

cited U.S. figures that four litres of milk cost on average $9.60 in Canada. She touted the example of Australia, which ended dairy supply management 12 years ago and paid farmers a transition fee funded by a consumer levy. “The Australian dairy industry is thriving,” she said. The same day, the Ottawa-based Macdonald-Laurier Institute issued its own report damning supply management. It was called Defending the Indefensible and included an essay from George Morris Centre senior researcher Larry Martin, who argued that the “overwhelming financial burden” from supply management falls on Canada’s poor. Dairy Farmers of Canada had a three-word response: wrong, wrong and wrong. The DFC said in a June 21 statement that the normal price for a four-litre milk pack is $3 to $4 less than Hall Findlay cites, supply management has

not stopped Canada from negotiating trade deals and Australian farmgate dairy prices have been volatile since deregulation and have not kept up with increasing consumer prices. The report’s “inaccurate assertion that Canada’s supply management system for dairy products overcharges consumers and interferes with international trade negotiations is based on deeply flawed research,” it said. A survey of consumer dairy prices shows average Canadian retail prices are lower than those in Australia and New Zealand, which have ended

dairy regulation, said the DFC. DFC president Wally Smith said dairy producers in the United States and the European Union, which are lobbying to undermine supply management, are subsidized so that consumers pay twice: in the store and through their taxes. He also noted that Canada has concluded many trade liberalization agreements without compromising supply management. Although the industry is concentrated in Quebec and Ontario, the British Columbia dairy farmer said dairy is one of the two top agricultural sectors in seven provinces. “Supply management works for farmers, processors, consumers and governments,” Smith said in a statement. Still, DFC directors were in full defence mode following Hall Findlay’s report, fending off increasingly numerous criticisms from a variety of academic, industry and media sources.


A $75 million class action lawsuit has been launched against Plains Midstream Canada in connection with an oil spill near Sundre, Alta. About 475,000 litres of light sour crude oil spilled into the Red Deer River earlier this month and eventually flowed into Gleniffer Lake near Innisfail in central Alberta. About 90,000 people rely on drinking water from this system. Merchant Law Group in Calgary plans to seek compensation for damages incurred for those living and working in the area. There is no cost to those who wish to join the action, said the firm’s website. If the action is successful, landowners affected by the spill may be entitled to compensation for damage to water and property. Plain Midstream declined comment.





Legislation to follow lack of resolution in rail service review Railway, shipper issues unresolved | Legislation expected to be tabled after Parliament resumes sitting in late September BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Transport Canada officials have the summer to prepare rail service legislation imposing rules on both railways and shippers negotiating shipper service agreements Legislation is expected to be tabled after Parliament resumes sittings in late September. “We have been contacted and told to have our comments in by the end of July,” Coalition of Rail Shippers chair Bob Ballantyne said. “We

expect legislation in the fall for sure.” Last week, after a five-month process failed to close the gap between the two railways and shippers, which includes farmers, former Alberta treasurer Jim Dinning recommended June 22 that both sides use a fivepoint plan to try to create voluntary service agreements.

it was clear Dinning failed to bridge the gap.

“The two unresolved key issues were to have the dispute resolution apply to the establishment of initial agreements and the timelines for resolving disputes,” he said in his report. They were not minor issues.

Whether it’s diamondback moths, cutworms or flea beetles, if there’s one thing insects prefer, it’s a warm winter and this year will be no exception. Canola growers across western Canada are advised to scout early and treat for pests to protect their investment.

May to early June may be at high risk of flea beetle damage when warmer weather returns. At that point, seed treatments will be losing their effectiveness, so a foliar application should be considered where feeding has caused 25 per cent defoliation and flea beetles are still active.

Diamondback moth. Diamondback larvae feeding can include mining inside the leaf by first instars. Later instars will chew from underneath the leaf, leaving only the top waxy layer – giving a window pane look. Later instars will also chew through the leaf or at leaf edges.

According to Canola Watch [http://www.canolawatch. org/], diamondback moth larvae are reaching thresholds much earlier than usual across the southern prairies. Insecticide seed treatment will not protect canola from diamondback moth larvae, so growers should monitor their fields and consider spraying if thresholds are reached. One thing to keep in mind is that, as canola values increase, the level of acceptable insect activity should decrease – a fact of particular importance when considering a high-value Nexera canola crop.


Wireworms. They feed only underground, and will often leave bare patches, just like a cutworm. In this case, scouting is essential. If wireworms are the cause, spray will not reach them and is ineffective. If cutworms are the cause, spray can be effective.

Because of the cool, wet conditions, canola seeded mid-

Courtesy of Canola Watch, here’s how to ID insect damage: Cutworms can eat canola plants before they emerge, leaving blank patches. Some species can cut plants off at the surface, leaving a toppled plant on the ground. They also climb the foliage and munch away. Flea beetles take small nips out of the topside of leaves, and in windy or wet conditions, can take small nips out of the underside of leaves and on stems. With many nips in one place, they can clip off entire cotyledons or stems.


If you are seeing uneven growth, it may not be due to insect damage. Grab a trowel and dig around damaged plants. You’ll find cutworms and wireworms in the top 4” of soil. Examine the roots for signs of disease damage. Stems and roots that are mushy or thin are often caused by seedling disease.

legislative back-up to give the process some teeth.” Canadian National Railway issued a statement June 22 arguing that shipper demands for more government intervention and regulation were the problem. The government should simply let the private negotiation system work, said the railway. The rail freight service review process already has produced improvements in company performance and collaboration with customers, said the Montreal-based railway. Ballantyne said the company concession that it improved service after the government-ordered rail service review started shows that the carriers respond only when there is a threat of government action. “I think that really reinforces our view that legislation with penalties for missing service level guarantees is needed to force compliance,” he said. Regina Liberal MP Ralph Goodale, a former agriculture minister, said that the CN statement “proves the point” that the railways will respond only under threat of sanction. “Unless there is a threat of legal consequences, then the railways won’t respond because they have the market power,” Goodale said from Regina.


Cows, horse shot in shooting spree BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Five cows and one horse, including a young girl’s 4-H animals, were shot and killed by someone on a shooting spree west of Edmonton. Stony Plain RCMP insp. Gary Graham said the shootings happened in three different farmyards. Graham said the shootings of the animals appear random. “Some of highway signs appear to be shot. Our best guess is it may have been done around the same time. An irresponsible individual thought it was sporting fun,” said Graham. “The animals were targeted.” Duffield 4-H Club member Kassidy Thordarson owned a cow, calf and heifer that were shot. RCMP, with the help of a local veterinarian, has recovered portions of the bullets from the animals to help with the investigation. “We’ve recovered some portions of bullets to give us some idea of what was used,” he said. Graham said they are following several leads, including a description of the possible suspect vehicle and statements from neighbours, but must rely on people who possibly saw suspicious activity, he said. “It’s difficult in a sense, we weren’t there and didn’t see it happen. We have to rely on somebody who saw it go down.”





ALBERTA SOUTH All crops are generally in good condition. Frequent rain showers have limited the need for irrigation in the southeast. Some canola and peas are in flower. Diamondback moths and cabbage seedpod weevils have been reported in canola. Cutworms are also a problem in some areas. Producers are urged to scout wheat crops for signs of stripe rust. Cooler than normal temperatures are affecting corn crops, which need more heat. Alfalfa haying and baling is underway. Hay crops and pasture conditions are good to excellent. CENTRAL All crops are generally in good condition. Timely rain right after seeding got crops off to a good start, and rapid growth continues. Canola is leafing out, limiting weed pressure. Spotty hailstorms have caused minimal damage. Cutworms and flea beetles have been reported. Typically dry regions around Oyen and Monitor are uncharacteristically green because of good rain. Some silage operations have begun. Hay fields and pastures in good condition. NORTHEAST All crops are generally in good condition, but more heat would be welcome. Moisture is rated good to excellent. An isolated hailstorm near Ponoka caused major crop damage. Localized outbreaks of wireworms, cutworms and flea beetles have been reported. Herbicide spraying is nearing an end as crops develop. Hay and pastures are in good condition.

Forty to 70 millimetres of rain fell in the region last week. Standing water is an issue in some areas, but overall soil moisture conditions are rated as good to excellent. Rain has hindered herbicide spraying operations. Tame hay and pasture conditions are rated as good.


and heading stages. Canola crops are moving toward flowering, with the earliest seeded crops already in bloom. Weed control has been sporadic because of the weather. Hay and pastures are good but need warmth. CENTRAL

Continued rain drenched cropland, but the arrival of warm, sunny weather at the end of last week raised hopes that saturation damage could be minimized. Scattered and severe storms buffeted some fields. Flea beetles and cutworms have caused some reseeding. Farmers are having trouble with weed control because soaked fields have prevented spraying. Winter wheat crops are showing damage from overly moist conditions. Pastures and hay fields are in good condition but need warm weather to be more productive.

The arrival of warm, dry weather has relieved some of the saturation stress. Cereal crops are advancing well, with some reaching the heading stage in eastern regions, while canola crops are in many stages of development up to early flowering. Oat crops are reporting bacterial blight. Wheat streak mosaic and barley yellow dwarf are also present. Sclerotinia control is underway and farmers are assessing diamondback moth larvae counts. Saturated soybeans have yellowing and iron chlorosis. Farmers are having trouble spraying because of the wet conditions. Dry weather is needed for proper crop management. Pastures and hayland are in good condition.



Warm, dry weather has brought relief to farmers who are struggling to get onto fields to manage crops. There is concern about disease. Wild storms hit some areas. Hail was reported near Ochre River. Some fields have significant ponding and the worst-hit fields have patches of dead crop and yellowing. Dry weather is necessary to save many crops. Winter wheat is flowering while spring cereals have reached the flag

Wet weather was replaced by dry weather at the end of last week, so saturated crops have had a chance to advance. Farmers are having trouble with weed and disease control because of the wet soil. Winter wheat and fall rye are flowering and heading. Spring cereals and canola are advancing. Most crops are doing OK because the rain was not as extreme in eastern areas as it was further west.


Most pastures and hayland are in good condition, but there are dry areas in the southern part of the region.

SASKATCHEWAN Saskatchewan farmers have finished seeding all but a few acres of this year’s crop. Planting, which was 98 percent complete as of June 18, was further delayed last week by widespread rain that added more moisture to already wet cropland. Excess moisture and lack of heat have delayed crop development across the province. Crops that have emerged are in good to fair condition with some areas experiencing moisture stress and yellowing. Overall, crop development is normal to behind normal, depending on the region. Farmers across the province are dealing with wet soil conditions, and spraying is delayed in many areas. SOUTH Seeding is mostly complete in southern regions, and crop development is normal to behind normal. Most areas received more rainfall last week, with amounts ranging from a few millimetres to 100 mm in the Tantallon and Gull Lake areas. Some areas received hail and suffered crop damage. Crop stress is evident in some regions because of excess moisture. Saturated fields have also delayed spraying. Hay crops are heavy, and pastures are in good shape. Haying is expected to begin early. The usual variety of crop pests is evident, including flea beetles, cutworms, cabbage seedpod weevils and gophers in the southwest.

NORTHWEST All crops are generally in good condition, although more heat would be welcome. Soil moisture is rated as good. Hay crops and pastures are rated as good, but more heat would help them, too. Scouting is underway for bertha armyworms and cabbage seedpod weevils. Heavy rainfall reported last week in the Grande Cache region. PEACE All crops are generally in good condition.

CENTRAL Topsoil moisture in east- and west-central Saskatchewan is roughly 60 percent surplus and 40 percent adequate. Most regions received more rain last week, adding to already abundant water supplies. In some areas, producers are dealing with severe flooding and crop damage because of hail and excess moisture. Some communities around Saskatoon and Yorkton have now received more than 350 mm of rain since April 1. Tornadoes were reported west and north of Saskatoon. Crop development throughout the region has been slow, and spraying is delayed in some parts. Farmers were busy last week controlling weeds, monitoring crops and preparing haying equipment. NORTH Seeding is mostly complete across Saskatchewan’s northern grain belt. Topsoil moisture across the region is adequate or excessive. Many crops are developing slowly because of lack of heat. Crops in the northwest and northeast are showing signs of moisture stress. Some, particularly canola in the northeast, may not recover completely without warm weather. Weed infestations are becoming a concern and spraying has been a challenge, particularly in the northeast. Pastures across the north are excellent and hay yields should be average to above average. Cereal and oilseed crops in the northwest are reported in mostly good condition. Crops in the northeast range from fair to good.

Federal cutbacks could diminish aid Government plans more focused aid

West Africans face starvation, hunger Humanitarian Coalition appeal | War, crop failure, high input costs lead to food crisis STORIES BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

A coalition of Canadian food and development aid organizations is warning that a humanitarian crisis is unfolding in West Africa as 18 million face hunger or starvation without help. The Humanitarian Coalition is appealing for Canadian help in the West African Sahel area where drought, harvest failure, high input costs and war have put millions at risk. Rosemary McCarney, president of

Plan Canada, said Canada has been generous in its support of the growing crisis in the Sahel. “Canada and CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency) were one of the first to respond to the crisis with $41 million,” she said. However, individual Canadians have not responded with contributions that could persuade Ottawa to match private donations as it has in past crises. “It is a bit of a dilemma for us because once aroused, Canadians are incredibly generous,” said McCarney.

“But there has been little media coverage of the crisis, and that’s what it takes. We hope to ignite an understanding of the crisis so that Canadians will respond as they always do.” Canadians had donated $650,000 by June 21, although the government has not yet agreed to match the private donations. McCarney said Canadians will become more generous if they understand Ottawa will match or exceed their contributions. “I think Canadians want to know the government has some skin in the game as well,” she said.

The crisis in West Africa has developed because of spotty rain and brutal military conflicts that have left hundreds of thousands of people as displaced refugees. Families have had to sell their mainstay cattle to pay bills and eat their seed grain to survive rather than planting it for next year’s harvest. McCarney said the hunger being experienced among children in the Sahel region will have lasting effects because it will stunt their ability to be productive in the future. The Sahel appeal can be reached at


New program encourages more private sector investment in food aid Prime minister Stephen Harper won praise from foreign aid and development activists last week for announcing a new international program that encourages the private sector to invest in food projects. During the G20 leaders’ meeting in Mexico, Harper championed a food program called AgResults, which will see governments set money aside to contribute when private investment has produced results for food production in developing countries. Canada committed $40 million over five years, and other countries, including the United Kingdom and Australia, also pledged funds. “AgResults involves donors allocat-

ing relatively small amounts of public sector money to leverage private sector research and development on food security challenges that would otherwise go unaddressed due to market uncertainties,” said the government announcement. Harper said it was a Canadian-led effort that helps ensure “people around the world have access to sufficient, safe and nutr itious foods.” World Vision Canada praised the announcement as a potential breakthrough. “Children and families living in poverty can know their voices have finally made it to the table as a whisper, thanks to Canada’s leadership on food security and nutrition,” World Vision

food security specialist Sherri Arnott said in a statement from Los Cabos, Mexico, where G20 leaders met. She called development of the AgResults program in consultation with aid activists “the most inclusive and transparent G20 process that World Vision has experienced.” Oxfam Canada policy co-ordinator Mark Fried also praised the initiative and Harper’s leadership. “It’s great that Canada is leading on n e w a p p ro a c h e s t o f i n a n c i n g research and development to help the world’s poor and hungry farmers,” said Fried. “If done well, the AgResults initiative could provide incentives for the private sector to come up with innovative solutions.”

He said the program w ill not replace the need for effective food and development aid but could be an important supplement. The government said the intent of the program is to attract private investment into projects such as more effective livestock vaccines, better fertilizers and systems to reduce post-harvest losses. This year, the first projects will concentrate on improving corn production in sub-Saharan Africa, targeting smallholder farmers. Harper said it will be a “pay-onresults” program that will provide financial support only when private investment results in measurable improvements in developing world food production.

Canada’s international development and food aid reputation is strong but in the process of being diminished, says an international report card. It recommends a shakeup in government aid agencies and more financial commitment to the file. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC) worried last week that after a decade of expanded aid, recent Canadian budgets have started to reduce that support. It also said the Conservative government has announced a more focused aid and development support plan that concentrates on target countries. Still, Canada remains one of the most generous in the world in responding to aid and food crises. “The DAC welcomes Canada’s efforts to make its assistance more focused while improving accountability,” the June 19 OECD report said. “It now recommends establishing a clear, simple and consistent vision for Canadian aid, one that is anchored sustainably within its foreign policy and that remains stable over the long term.” The OECD repor t noted that Canada doubled its aid budget to $5.3 billion from 2001 to 2011. “However, some of these gains are likely to be reversed, given that Canada’s (aid budget) shrank by more than five percent in real terms between 2010 and 2011 and is set to fall further in 2012.” The most recent federal budget targeted international aid for major cuts in the effort to get Canada out of deficit. The report said Canada’s aid contribution of 0.31 percent of the national economy makes it the eighth largest OECD aid contributor. However, the goal agreed to by Canada and set by former prime minister Lester Pearson is more than double that level. “Canada still needs to draw up a timetable for achieving the international commitment of giving 0.7 percent of its gross national income,” the OECD said. The report noted that Canada has reduced by more than half the number of countries it targets for support. It said the government should write that new strategy more explicitly into its foreign policy vision. The aid and development policy requires “a clear, simple and consistent vision for Canada’s aid along with details of how its new approach to development co-operation is to be translated into objectives, strategy and programs.” The OECD report also delved into personnel matters at the Canadian International Development Agency, suggesting that staff discontent is part of the problem.





Experts estimate modern cattle stem from 80 animals Domestication difficult | With few wild aurochs in captivity, the progenitors of founder herds were few BY MARGARET EVANS FREELANCE WRITER

LINDELL BEACH, B.C. — Modern science has told us taurine cattle descended from wild aurochs about 10,500 years ago. But it took the combined analysis of archaeozoological and genetic data using mitochondrial DNA from 15 Neolithic to Iron Age Iranian domestic cattle fossils to estimate

that only 80 female aurochs were initially domesticated to form the founder herd. This information fits with archaeological data suggesting that domestication was not widespread, but took place in a restricted area, most likely because of the difficulty of containing, managing and breeding dangerous wild oxen. According to the research paper, modern Taurine cattle descended

An auroch skeleton is on display at the Zoologisk Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark. | from a small number of near-eastern founders. It took almost 2,000 years from the earliest years of taming wild aurochs to clear evidence of their domestication. The low number of 80 founder females indicates a restricted number of initial captures and calculates to less than two animals per generation, which is extremely low. Aurochs were common throughout Europe and Asia so there would have been many opportunities to capture and contain them. Centuries of managing just a few wild animals could feasibly have been done by a small community such as a couple of Neolithic villages. Two sites in particular fit that profile. Dja’de and Cayonu are rich in human and animal artefacts and they reveal the earliest signs of wild auroch domestication. Geographically, these two sites were close enough — less than 250 kilometres apart — to allow an exchange of skills and husbandry techniques at a time when people were shifting from being nomadic to settling down and committing to animal husbandry. “The best way to describe a wild auroch is like a moody, angry lorry (truck),” said Mark Thomas, geneticist at the UCL Research Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment and an author of the study. “There were a whole series of processes going on here (with the domestication of) goats and the cultivation of crops. When it came to cattle, it required some conditions, like being sedentary. It’s very difficult to imagine people domesticating wild aurochs while they were mobile. There weren’t the technologies in place and they would have had to start breeding them for docile characteristics very quickly.” Managing the wild cattle would have been difficult if the people had not stayed in one location. Handling large, aggressive males was likely overwhelming, resulting in limited successful cattle domestication and few progenitors for founder herds.


Some method of containment to control those early animals had to have been developed to some extent because, as Thomas pointed out, aurochs turned up in Cyprus during the early stages of domestication. He hypothesized those animals must have been taken by boat, likely as calves. Containment and early handling of calves would have made them more amenable to being worked as there is evidence of their use to carry loads in the early stages of domestication. “We simulated different scenarios (in a computer) with different numbers of animals that were first domesticated then tried to see which of those different simulations gave us the best data that looked like the real data today. It turned out that the ones that were the best had a small number of animals initially domesticated. We modelled it as a single event,” Thomas said. Secrets lie in DNA He said researchers were looking at mtDNA, the female line from early cattle. The problem with looking at modern mtDNA is that the genetics fall into different lineages and do not show how the animals first became domesticated, or how many. “So what we really needed to do was get DNA from very early cattle.” He said if there had been more than one domestication event and each event had fed its genetics into today’s modern cattle stock, then greater genetic variation would have been preserved by chance. The effect of that is that fewer animals would have been needed for domestication in the first place to get the genetic pattern that exists in cattle today. He said those first cattle couldn’t have added up to more than 80 animals. One of the challenges of the study was extracting reliable DNA that hadn’t been contaminated. “If the (samples) were in Lapland (where it’s cold) they would be


fine,” said Thomas. “But they were domesticated in quite a hot place and the absolutely critical factor when it comes to DNA either breaking down or being preserved in bones over a long time is temperature. These samples aren’t from a cold place. It was a lot of work done by (the team) and they managed to produce some reliable things from some samples.” While the cattle’s value as animals to haul goods and provide meat was evident early on, their contribution as milk producers is less clear, especially given that the onset of domestication happened during the Early Pre-Pottery Neolithic period 10,800 to 10,300 years ago. “I don’t think we are able to really say whether an animal was being milked,” said Thomas. “There are two ways to tell whether an animal was used for dairying. One is to detect dairy fats on pottery. The other one is to look at the age and sex ratios. The idea is that if you are using animals for milk you will slaughter most of the bulls but keep the cows to a decent age. If you are going to use cattle for traction, bulls are stronger than cows so you’ll keep most bulls alive to a decent age. These are the economic activities as to which sexes you slaughter and which you keep. There’s no reason why that approach couldn’t have been applied to those very early animals.” The results of the study conducted by scientists from the National Centre for Scientific Research and the National Museum of Natural History in France, the University of Mainz in Germany and the University College London in the United Kingdom were published in the journal Molecular Biology and Evolution. The archaeological digs included sites in the Middle Euphrates Valley and the High Tigris Valley in today’s southeastern Turkey and northeastern Syria, as well as the northwestern corner of Iran. Along with northern Iraq, the region forms an arc that is part of the ancient Fertile Crescent, the cradle of farming.

Exercise good for aging brains New study links exercise, healthier brains | Seniors can lower health risks by staying active BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

They pulled on their sweat pants, laced up their runners and agreed to get off their fannies and exercise. Within three months, 125 older men and women participating in a University of Calgary study saw positive results. The study, which examined the effects of exercise and blood circulation, sought people who exercised little. After three months, participants showed reduced body fat, improved blood flow to the brain and consequently, improved intellectual health. “Exercise is really important for providing the fuel for your brain to make new connections,” said psychologist and researcher Stewart Longman.

Physical and intellectual tests were conducted on people older than 55. Physical exercise, as well as activities such as crossword puzzles, reading and listening to music, can contribute to a healthier brain. Lead researcher Marc Poulin said regular cardiovascular exercise is vital to keeping minds intact and avoiding chronic diseases associated with aging such as dementia. The study is being run in phases, and results are still preliminary. Full results will be available in 2014. The first early study involved 42 women aged 50 to 90. About half admitted to being sedentar y. Researchers found that the group had improved blood flow, and cognitive test results showed a 10 percent improvement. The next study is also showing positive results.

Poulin hopes to follow up on the participants six months after they leave the program to see if the benefits persist. Initial results show that participants had more vigour with a three percent improvement in physical fitness after three months of aerobic exercise three times a week. Blood flow to the brain improved 8.7 percent, and people could handle higher doses of carbon dioxide. Mental flexibility improved by 23 percent. “We think the implications are enormous. Demographics are shifting with a large share of the population over 65,” said Poulin. He expects more people could reach 100 in the future, but that increased longevity also comes

with greater risk of costly chronic diseases. Studies like this hope to find alternatives to improved quality of life rather than relying heavily on pharmaceuticals, he added. “There is little research to say people will live longer, but with exercise they can improve their quality of life,” he said. The first group of baby boomers turned 65 in 2011, and the proportion of people older than that is continuing to grow. One-quarter of Canadians will be seniors by 2030. The study is looking for more participants, particularly men older than 55. For more information, contact 403-210-7315 or brainmotion@

SIDNEY, B.C. — As the Federated Women’s Institutes of Canada moves closer to its 100th birthday in 2019, the 19th triennial convention here June 12-16 focused on how to attract younger members. Membership stands at 10,300 in 827 branches, a drop from 13,000 members in 1,000 branches a few years earlier. B.C. WI president Jill Copes said her group’s membership has dropped to 664 members from 55 branches since 2009, when there were 792 members in 65 branches. “This decrease in membership and branches is alarming and affects the entire structure of women’s institutes,” she said. Despite declines, Saskatchewan WI president Lynn Ballhorn is determined to continue working for her members. “WI officials are aware of challenges facing the WI,” she said. FWIC past-president Ruth Blenkhorn, current president Marie Kenny and president-elect Linda Hoy say the membership is strong in parts of Eastern Canada. “We need to build on our historical past as a way to enhance growth,” said Kenny, a Prince Edward Island church pastor. As her term begins, Kenny intends to spur expansion by improving recruitment, province-to-province contact and communication between the national office and provinces. She believes that the WI is where personal growth can happen. “We have to be willing to move out of our comfort zone,” she said. Because the WI is family-oriented, it can be a support system for those dealing with challenges such as raising children, caring for elderly parents or health problems. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE





Online course assists health-care providers to promote healthy living Doctors look at sickness rather than wellness, said the president of the Canadian Nutrition Society. Leah Gramlich, a gastroenterologist at the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Medicine, said more focus is needed on promoting health by eating and exercising properly. “If you think about modifiable risk factors for chronic disease, it relates to food and activity,” she said at the Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency’s Future Fare June 19 in Calgary. Gramlich said too many sick people suffering from chronic conditions are given drugs when improved nutrition could complement their treatment. The university hopes to improve and change that approach by launching an online, three credit course to teach health-care students, including doctors, nurses, nutritionists, pharmacists and dentists, about the value of exercise and proper diet. The website, called Wellness Rx, will be launched later this year with support from ALMA. About 40 percent of the provincial government is spent on health care. “In Alberta, we have the capacity to generate grassroots strategy and facilitate a shift from illness-based health-care system to a wellnessbased health system,” Gramlich said. In preparing the program, the university found a need for specific training because there was inconsistent knowledge about lifestyle modification. Physicians probably do three to seven years of post-graduate training and it often does not include food knowledge. Gramlich admitted the course was difficult to integrate into the medical curriculum. It needs to be interesting and students do not need more instruction about the Canada Food Guide for healthy eating since most schoolchildren are taught about it. They need concepts to build understanding and help patients think about the food they eat. “We also wanted learners to improve their own health and then have the ability to improve the health of their future clients. “Health-care professionals need to be viewed as a credible source of information,” she said. — BARBARA DUCKWORTH



Producers offer fresh options Coupon book | Healthy nutrition, discounts to boost farm business BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Alberta schoolchildren may have a new healthy fundraising option with a farm fresh coupon book. The tradition of selling chocolates to raise funds has hit a snag with many schools banning chocolate sales under a policy of emphasizing healthy eating. A new initiative by the Alberta Farm Fresh Producers Association hopes to combine school fundraising with healthy nutrition while also boosting business for local producers. The pilot project is testing how having schoolchildren sell the Farm Fresh Coupon Book works as a fundraiser. Promoters of the plan hope children will go with their parents to the farms, corn mazes and markets and learn more about fresh, local food. In turn, market gardens, greenhouses and agriculture tourism operators will attract new customers. Ron Erdmann, president of the Alberta Farm Fresh Producers Association, said some producers are excited about it, while others aren’t keen on the idea. “The agritourism people are really excited about it,” said Erdmann, who operates a greenhouse and market garden.

Erdmann plans to have a coupon that offers a discount on spring vegetables included in the pack, as well as a coupon on fresh vegetables in the fall and one redeemable in the late fall for vegetables like cabbage, carrots and potatoes. For Erdman, it’s one more way to attract customers to his Sherwood Park farm on the outskirts of Edmonton. “How many new people can we get interested in coming here?” he said. Annette Anderwald, Alberta Agriculture’s dietitian, said the coupons should help get young people and good, local food together. “We want to create an environment where it’s easy to eat well and hard to eat badly.” About 20 producers have registered for the program, but Anderwald hopes about 120 producers will include coupons in the book. Alberta Agriculture will fund the designing and printing of the coupon books in the pilot project year and hopes to have the coupon booklets ready to sell by January. Anderwald said the project is a win, win, win. Kids win because they find out where fresh food comes from, schools win because they have a new healthy fundraising option and farmers win because they attract new customers.

There are now fruit and vegetable options instead of chocolates and cookies for Alberta school fundraisers through the Alberta Farm Fresh Producers Association’s initiative. | FILE PHOTO

Last February, she and three other non-governmental representatives accompanied MP Rona Ambrose to New York City as part of the Canadian delegation to the 56th United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. The session focused on the empowerment of rural women and their role in poverty, hunger eradication and gender equality. “It was an incredible learning experience and an opportunity to highlight what we do,” said Kenny, who also later met with Agriculture Canada staff. In addition, Kenny and Blenkhorn

were invited to attend the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Awards at Rideau Hall in April in Ottawa, another opportunity to spread the word about WI work. Du r i n g h e r t h re e - y e a r t e r m, Blenkhorn has worked to increase FWIC’s profile.

She said that WI’s humble nature may be why they don’t get a lot of media attention despite being a national organization that deals with social issues from rural child care to food labelling to women’s health. “We have to try to become more visible,” Blenkhorn said. Kenny is keen to bolster their membership through new immigrants. “We need to reach newcomers to Canada,” she said. The three FWIC women all expressed confidence in the group’s future. “We’re a solid organization that has endured,” Kenny said. “We make a difference in the lives of women. In many communities, we’re the fabric that holds them together.”


Always tell the truth in business and at home SIDNEY, B.C. — Businessman Peter Legge believes in telling the truth. Speaking at the Federated Women’s Institutes of Canada triennial convention June 15, he told delegates to guard their integrity and moral principles. “There’s no such thing as business ethics. It’s all ethics,” said the chair and chief executive officer of Canada Wide Media Limited. “Always tell the truth. Truth is timeless. You can’t tell a lie backwards.” He cited data showing that 86 per-


cent of successful business leaders have remained married to their first spouse. His advice, which included learning to get along with people and cleaning up your life, made an impact on FWIC members. “Organizations must have integrity and a focus,” said Alberta WI president Brenda Willsie of Wetaskiwin. “Being positive and being honest are extremely important to the women’s institute.” Alberta WI is having its provincial convention in Camrose this month and Willsie plans to use Legge’s presentation to develop a working plan and focus for the meeting. B.C. FWIC member Jean Johnson appreciated how Legge invigorated the group by encouraging the group to set targets that it can achieve. “Our membership is diminishing. We need to rethink and set goals, look to the future,” said Johnson of Grand Forks. Legge encouraged members to do more than they are asked. “This organization is about others,” he said. “You know who you are, but do you have a clear idea where you’re going?” Legge said FWIC represents a worthy ideal. “Find out what you can do, what’s within you,” he said. — SHANNON MONEO

Dishes to enjoy at the cottage or in the backyard Some tests

not required





ummer days are here again. School doors are locked for the holiday and children are ready for summer fun. The following are some of my favourite picnic recipes. Try them for the upcoming Canada Day weekend.


Do you think that doctors prescribe too many unnecessary medical tests? I am sure this is partly what is driving up health care costs. I sometimes feel that doctors do tests so that they do not have to bother doing a full physical examination to make a diagnosis.

SIMPLE PICKLED EGGS They are a great snack or appetizer that delivers a nutritional kick. Hard boil the eggs and cool. Peel and place them in a large sterilized jar or glass container. Mix a solution of equal amounts vinegar and water, enough to fill the container. Place in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours and enjoy the zing that these eggs deliver.


GRILLED STEAK MARINADE This marinade is good on steak, but it can also be used on ribs or chicken. Honey and lemon are the keys to the right sweet to sour taste. Serve with baked potatoes and toppings of your choice and a marinated bean or vegetable salad.

Dip strawberries, pineapple or melons into fruit fluff. Add a monster cookie or a light snack. |

WHAT TO BARBECUE? You can spend a little or a lot on steak. Here are the most common of the more expensive cuts: • Tenderloin: Medallions or filets cut from the loin section are the leanest, most tender and most expensive • Strip loin: Often called New York steak, it is not as tender as tenderloin, but some consider it the tastiest cut • T-bone: It has tenderloin on one side of the bone and strip loin on the other. Both sides are flavourful • Porterhouse: Similar in appearance to T-bones but they have a larger piece of tenderloin. If priced the same, choose porterhouse over a T-bone • Top sirloin: Usually a thick cut. It is a little tougher than rib and loin cuts, but flavourful • Rib eye: Considered an alternative to tenderloin, a rib eye has fine texture and should be delicately marbled.

U.S. medical associations have recently made recommendations to save health-care costs. Nine associations recently released a list of 45 tests that they felt were not always necessary and should no longer be ordered automatically. Most of these tests are expensive and would not help the patient live longer than if they had not been performed. For example, if you have a normal result from a colonoscopy, you would not need another test for at least 10 years, assuming you have no family history of colon cancer. They also felt that patients who had simply fainted but did not have seizures,did not need a brain scan. Patients who had no signs of having had a coronary thrombosis did not need a heart imaging stress test. People with most types of back pain did not need complicated X-rays and scans. One of the most controversial recommendations was for cancer specialists to stop treatment in endstage cases, where the patients had not previously responded to multiple therapies, and were not suitable candidates for experimental treatments. Many of these treatments and tests are not without considerable sideeffects and risks and they should be carefully considered. Is it worth chemotherapy that makes you ill for months to gain a few months of life? The situation is not as extreme in Canada. Despite this, we have a slightly greater life expectancy than those living in the U.S.

DESIGNER ASPIRIN MAY HELP FIGHT CANCER Researchers at City College in New York, led by professor Khosrow Kashfi, have developed an aspirin that is safer than the old version. This drug is also a powerful cancer fighter. It may help with colon, pancreatic, lung, prostate and breast cancer and leukemia. Kashfi feels that it could be used to shrink tumours by as much as 85 percent before chemotherapy or surgery. The main side-effects of aspirin are internal bleeding and kidney toxicity, but these side-effects have been minimized in this experimental drug that combines two earlier types of the drug to form a hybrid they call NOSH-aspirin.

Farm visitors armed for shootouts, leave satisfied Paintball business | Owner says the adrenaline rush has even the quietest of customers sharing their battle stories BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Shooting people has become a divisive issue on the Manning farm. George likes it. It has given rise to his first viable business venture: paintball. Edna hates it. She grew up in a Mennonite household that believed in pacifism. “I just feel that it’s kind of a brutal and violent thing and I just have a little bit of an issue with that,” she said. George shrugs off the criticism of his Merrill Dunes paintball and laser tag business. On the surface, it appears to be an anti-social activity where the object is to kill one another. Delve deeper and you’ll find a hobby that unites the participants. “People come in after a paintball event and they’re wired, they’re adrenalized and they talk. Even the most quiet person will have his war story. As a result, it’s a tremendous mixer,” said George. Those bonding moments tend to be more profound with paintball, which involves more pain, bruising and mess than laser tag. “The reason is the fear factor with paintball because when you go out with paintball, you know there is a risk of getting hit and you’re a little bit

scared and the adrenaline flows and that makes everything much more memorable,” said George. The paintball operation on the Mannings’ 80-acre farm located south of Saskatoon got its start 16 years ago after George and Edna’s two sons got their first taste of the extreme sport during a hockey windup. One of the boys prodded his dad to set up a paintball field on the back of their property. “It was a father-son lark. It’s one of the few things I’ve done, I guess you could say, that was successful. It’s not as if it’s Facebook or anything but it has generated more revenue than just about anything else that I’ve done.” George was raised on a grain farm on the outskirts of Rosetown, Sask. He said the paintball business has similarities to farming. It allows him to avoid the nine-to-five lifestyle he abhors. “I’m a typical farm boy who was spoiled by freedom and just like a wild horse doesn’t like to get put in a fence. I’m not prepared to sacrifice freedom for a zoo cage,” he said. Edna grew up on a small cattle and chicken farm near Sonningdale, Sask. She takes care of the yard, works in the garden and tends to their chickens, milk cow and 16 head of cattle. Creating wholesome food for the

family is her passion. “A lot of my time does go into food preparation because we grind our own wheat to make bread. The meals are made more or less from scratch,” she said. “We’re kind of into the organic side of things as far as our own food supply.” During the winter months, Edna keeps herself busy freelance writing for various publications. She distances herself from George’s paintball business and keeps her objections to herself. “I do my job and he does his job. I just keep my mouth shut,” said Edna. George used to operate a welding shop on the farm. At one point, he created a toy manufacturing business but it was a flop. “The toy business was incorporated and built up tremendous losses,” he said. Paintball has rescued the corporation while allowing George to pursue his passion of making cool stuff for people. There are two separate paintball fields on the farm and a third laser tag field is in the works. George recently purchased a mechanical bull that will be used in conjunction with the laser tag field.

George Manning likes creating fun and challenging environments for customers of his Merrill Dunes paintball business near Saskatoon. The latest addition is a mechanical bull. Edna Manning, left, sticks to her passions, which are raising and preparing wholesome food for the family and freelance writing. | SEAN PRATT PHOTOS The business employs up to four part-time staff during the peak summer months, including their daughter, Lindsay. George has enough guns and masks to equip 100 people at a time. The fields are constantly evolving with different obstacles to hide behind. There are 1,200 garbage dumpsters, 20 buses, two massive wooden towers, parts of an old army tank, an aircraft fuselage and a bunch of trenches and wooden structures.

George derives as much pleasure from designing the fields and building the structures as he does from running the business. All of the paintball customers are private groups. He refuses to accept walk-in traffic because one bad egg can spoil the experience for everybody. “It’s a band of brothers experience. They’ve done this thing together. They’ve got all these exciting little incidents. They’ll talk about it two weeks later,” he said.





Role of crown prosecutor A PRAIRIE PRACTICE



ne of a crown prosecutor’s most difficult roles is communicating with and managing the expectations of victims and families of victims in high profile criminal cases. Our criminal justice system is set up in such a way that, when someone is charged with a criminal offence, it is the crown that is the opposing party rather than the victim. Criminal cases are cited as Rv. (name of accused) to indicate that the accused person’s dispute is with Her Majesty the Queen, the Queen being the symbol for society generally. In the United States, the equivalent symbol is “The People.� In Canada, the “R� stands for “Regina,� the Latin term for the Queen. The job of the crown prosecutor is to present the crown’s evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, which is the high standard necessary to produce a conviction. The crown will have a number of witnesses in most criminal trials, usually including the victim of the crime. However, the victim, who is often referred to as the complainant, is not the person who has the case against the accused person. Sometimes a victim or his family may sue the criminally accused person in a civil action, in which the victim will be the plaintiff and the opposing party in the litigation. However, those proceedings are different and kept separate from the criminal proceedings. It is important to remember that the victim of a crime is not a party in a criminal matter. That role is carried out on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen by the crown prosecutors. What that means in practical terms is that the victim of a crime is not the crown prosecutor’s client. It is not the prosecutor’s job to advocate on behalf of that person or his family. There are various agencies and legislation to provide assistance for victims of crime, but the purposes of the criminal justice system are much broader than to provide vindication for them. According to Canada’s criminal code, objectives of the criminal justice system include denouncing unlawful conduct, deterring the offender and other persons from committing offences, separating offenders from society where necessary, assisting in rehabilitating offenders, promoting a sense of responsibility in offenders and providing reparations for harm done to victims or the community. The media often portrays a criminal trial as a process over which the victim or the victim’s family has control. Victims are asked about their reaction to verdicts and sentencing, and their reaction is important. However, it is only part of the process. Although victims and their families must be, and generally are, treated

with compassion and respect by the crown, those persons do not usually command a decision-making role in the conduct of the proceedings. As a wise crown prosecutor has observed, victims and their families need to make use of counselling and other resources to help them deal with the impacts of the crime. “If they are coming to the criminal trial just to find healing, peace or closure, that is probably not going to happen.� This article is presented for informational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice.

Pages detail lives of early pioneers Stories documented | Community history books contain photos and stories from a century ago BY CHRISTALEE FROESE FREELANCE WRITER

MONTMARTRE, Sask. — After 50,000 hours and four years of research, writing and editing, a group of Saskatchewan volunteers has produced a 1,500-page history book about Montmartre, Kendal, Candiac, Moffat, Mutrie and Carry the Kettle Reservation. Frank Korvemaker, an appraisal archivist with the Saskatchewan Archives Board, said Montmartre: History of the Village and RM 126 is one of the most comprehensive Saskatchewan community histor y books he has ever read. “They’re almost like an encyclopedia because you can thumb through and find all kinds of interesting things that you weren’t expecting.” Korvemaker said the book has extensive coverage of the Assiniboine Reserve No. 76 (Carry the Kettle First Nation). “If you pick up this book, you’ll be able to read about First Nation’s history in a way that you just haven’t done before. It’s refreshing and very surprising to see that kind of story

being told in a regional history book.” The committee included Marrianne Couckuyt, Sandra Brown, Marianne Bast, Andre Perras, Gail Leippi, Wanda Eberle and Colleen Fink. Bast, who was responsible for researching and writing the Assiniboine Reserve section, conducted interviews with elders and collected personal photos to construct a history of the Assiniboine Indians that dates back to 1640. The three books take readers back in time to 1893 when eight families from France established their homesteads in southeastern Saskatchewan.

The book begins with the trials and tribulations experienced by the French settlers who came to Saskatchewan believing they were coming to a scenic land where log cabins, food provisions, livestock and farm equipment would be provided. “No log houses awaited them, no trees broke the rolling grassland seen below them from the hills, there was no river in sight. They spent their first night under the stars being eaten by mosquitoes.” The committee was aided by community members who submitted

family histories, as well as information about everything from churches to schools and sports teams to businesses. Jim Lynch submitted the following memory: “It was around Christmas 1918 when my grandfather, Mr. John Lynch Sr., decided to move a wooden grain bin a half mile in the dead of winter to Latham School to host the Christmas dinner.” Couckuyt cited a family history recounting the death of a child on a train and a burial that had to occur

while the locomotive was in motion. “We hope when people read the book that they have a sense of pride in all the things people endured and all the things that were accomplished,” she said. Korvemaker said the book is one that should be read by anyone interested in prairie history and everybody living in those communities. “Even if you don’t read it from beginning to end, you can flip through over and over again and you can always find something interesting,” he said.





Opposition group debates need, feasibility of power line Based on wind generation potential | If government subsidies drop and wind farms fail to materialize, producers say the line won’t be needed BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

TWIN BUTTE, Alta. — AltaLink has a fight on its hands with a proposal that would erect a 240 kilovolt electrical line through southwestern Alberta. More than 100 people gathered in Twin Butte June 20 to discuss how to prevent the Goose Lake to Etzikom Coulee line from being built. Members of the Chinook Area Land Users Association, who organized the meeting, were supported by Joe Anglin, the Wildrose MLA for Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre, who is well known in the province for his opposition to power line construction in central Alberta. “I’ll join the fight,” Anglin told the group. “I will stay with you as long as you stay organized … because this thing has to be stopped.” The power line, part of the Southern Alberta Transmission Reinforcement plan approved in 2008 by the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO), is designated to go near Waterton Lakes National Park, cross scenic ranching country and skirt native grasslands. It will connect a transmission station near Pincher Creek to another near Etzikom, potentially going near Glenwood, Cardston, Spring Coulee, Magrath, Raymond and Stirling, depending on the route AltaLink deems least disruptive. Anglin said his review of the AltaLink plans indicates the company has suggested building in areas outside the “needs approval” region for the line, meaning the area approved by AESO. That will give the Chinook group grounds for fighting the line. “You can win this,” he said. “You

hire a lawyer and start the fight. You’ve got to cost AltaLink money.” AltaLink has said at open houses that the line is needed to connect wind turbine projects to the provincial electrical grid. Some of the wind farms are only proposals at this stage, which is one of the things that concerns landowners. “I am 100 percent opposed to it,” said Pincher Creek area rancher Quentin Stevick. “I don’t feel that the line itself is even necessary because its for a projected 2,700 megawatts of potential wind energy. This is a lot like building a six lane highway when you don’t

even know if you’re going to have any traffic on it. It’s looking to me like a chicken and egg thing, where the wind generation won’t be built unless the transmission line is in place, but the transmission line, to me, doesn’t need to built unless the wind generators are there.” Stevick said AESO’s 2008 plan may have made sense then, but questions are now being asked about the viability of wind power generation. “If you take away some of the government subsidies and you take away some of the carbon offsets, are these wind generators really as efficient as people say they are?”

Anglin’s support revived a meeting that had grown quiet after land agent Darryl Bennett recounted specifics from his fight on behalf of 30 Coaldale area landowners against the Montana Alberta Tie Line, which is now in at least temporary limbo. Bennett said landowners have little power when dealing with AESO, AltaLink and the Alberta Utilities Commission. “You’re just something they have to go through to get the line built,” he said. Dealings with the provincial surface rights board are also problematic when the utility applies for and

receives right of entry. “The board’s not going to visit your land. You’re not going to be able to challenge AltaLink’s submissions to the board,” Bennett said. Anglin said agencies and utility companies intentionally route power lines through rural areas. “They pick on farmers and rural people because they don’t fight and they don’t organize,” he said. The Chinook group now intends to ask for a public meeting with AESO and AltaLink. Other landowner groups in the region are also planning meetings to fight construction of this power line and other projects.

DuPont sued for infringement KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Reuters) — Monsanto, the world’s largest seed company, is suing chief rival DuPont. Monsanto is accusing DuPont and its agricultural crop subsidiary of treading on Monsanto’s technological turf by copying key new plant breeding innovations. Monsanto’s suit claims that a “seed chipping ” invention, which it unveiled in 2007 as a way to speed up plant breeding, has been duplicated by DuPont in a “laser-assisted seed selection” tool introduced in 2008. Monsanto claims its business is suffering “irreparable harm” as a result. DuPont spokesperson Dan Turner said the lawsuit was “without merit.” “Monsanto continues to use litigation in an attempt to limit Pioneer from being an effective competitor,” he said. “This tactic has not worked in previous cases, and it will not work in this matter.” Monsanto spokesperson Tom Helscher said the company would not comment on its lawsuit, which was filed June 18 in U.S. District Court in St. Louis. Monsanto is seeking a permanent injunction and damages for what it calls “willful infringement”.

Thanks from Canadian Foodgrains Bank to all our corporate and business supporters! Our 2011-12 budget year was a great success! Altogether, Canadians donated $15.8 million to Canadian Foodgrains Bank to help people who don’t have enough to eat in the developing world. Combined with support from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), we were able to provide over 40,000 tonnes of food worth $43.9 million for 2.1 million people in 36 countries. This assistance was made possible by the generous support from corporations, businesses and elevators that provided products, services and donations to over 200 growing projects across the country. With their help, Canadian farmers were able to donate 19,396 tonnes of food grains worth $5.5 million to the Foodgrains Bank. We are grateful to each and every business and person who provided support last year; with your help, we are working towards our goal of ending global hunger.

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.

Single Front-Folding Auger Design

Upper Auger Spout Design

The unloading auger is turned to throw grain perpendicular to the semi-trailer, maximizing auger side reach and throw for a complete fill every time.

Dimension B Effective Side Reach (Throw) 1326-22 9’-9” 1151-22 10’-5” 1000-20 10’-5” 875-18 11’-0” 750-18 11’-0”

B Effective Side Reach (Throw)

Patented Hydraulic Flow Control Spout easily corrects auger position on too close or too far away approaches.

Reach Further The Side-Shooter Spout throws the grain directly towards the semi-trailer, not at an angle, maximizing side reach.

The Cynthia model of sewage treatment Sewage plan | The hamlet of Cynthia, Alta., builds a solar greenhouse to treat its sewage with plants and bacteria BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

CYNTHIA, Alta. — It’s a question facing hundreds of small hamlets and villages across the Prairies. What happens when the sewage lagoon needs replacing? The councillors at Brazeau County in Alberta decided not to build another smelly lagoon at the edge of town. Instead, they built a solar greenhouse that treats the sewage with plants and bacteria. County officials took a chance on new technology for the tiny hamlet of Cynthia, population 60, that they hoped could be a model for sewage lagoons across the country. Brazeau County reeve Wes Tweedle said it was an experiment. They had to do something with their existing sewer system and took a chance on the alternative technology. The $1.8 million Solar Aquatic Systems plant works well when it is working and fails dramatically when it fails, said the county’s Darcy Mulroy. “It’s wonderful when it’s working,” said Mulroy, who has been in charge of repairing the Cynthia facility since it was built in 2009. The 2,000 sq. foot glass-fronted building looks more like a greenhouse than a waste water treatment plant. It is designed to clean 88 cubic metres of effluent a day. Sewage from the hamlet is piped into a large 20 cubic metre surge tank and then into six aerobic and anaerobic tanks inside the facility. Bacteria grow on the tank walls and on the roots of tropical plants floating in the water, which provides more surface area and increases the number of bacteria in the water. “The more bacteria the better,” said Mulroy. However, the new sewage plant has been plagued with problems from the beginning. EcoTek, the company from Langley, B.C., that designed and built the plant, had built only two other plants, both in warm climates : British Columbia and Cuba. Last fall, the aeration system and

The passive solar building faces west rather than south and gets too hot during winter days. The solar panels were filled with water and stopped working after they froze. Recently the surge tank pipe separated and needed repair. This spring, Mulroy’s biggest problem was trying to keep ground water out of the sewage lines. Despite the problems, Mulroy still believes the system has its benefits. It was the sewage treatment facility that enticed Mulroy to start working in the county’s water and sewer department. “This is definitely a viable option,” said Mulroy, who has led tours from other municipalities at the facility. “I don’t want other people to deal with the same mistakes as we have.” Tweedle said the system will be a good alternative for small towns and villages once the problems are

ironed out. With no smell, the facility can be located inside a community. “If we can get it working good, it is an excellent alternative,” he said. The plant may need to be expanded because of new oilfield camps hooking up to Cynthia’s water and sewer system. Mulroy believes an A-frame building with roof openings to regulate the heat would be an easy addition and help fix some of the light and heat issues. The plant is designed to be a continuous flow system with sewage flowing in and clean water flowing out continually. Alberta regulations require enough lagoon storage capacity for nine months. The sewage is pumped into the old lagoon once it is cleaned. Twice a year, the clean water is pumped from the lagoon to a nearby waterway. The lagoon was drained June 18 and the water quality was “phenom-

Irradiated food gaining consumer acceptance: survey Technology gains acceptance | A recent Consumers’ Association study suggests 67 percent of Canadians want irradiation technology put to use BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Canadian consumers are ready to accept food irradiation, a consumer lobbyist told a parliamentary committee recently. Consumers’ Association of Canada president Bruce Cran told the Senate agriculture committee that consumers overwhelmingly see the once-controversial irradiation technology as one answer to their food safety worries. He said Canada spent $86 million to develop the technology several decades ago, but it has never been

put into widespread use. Instead, technology developed here is now being used in the United States. “We just did a survey on that (and) we know that 67 percent of Canadians would like to see that available as an option,” he said. “This technology is available to us now and would be the single most obvious factor that I can think of to improve agricultural products in Canada if it were available.” He said irradiated food should be properly labelled. A limited number of Canadian products are now eligible for irradiation.

“We hear from Canadians who say they would rather have irradiated food than risk dying or being sickened by E. coli or listeria, both of which are killed by irradiation,” he said. Consumers’ Council of Canada board member Elizabeth Nielsen said her members are concerned about the safety of imported food. “Consumers express concern over the fact that 70 percent of Canadian food and products are imported from 190 countries with various levels of food safety controls,” she said. “Although the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is planning to intro-

duce new regulations to better control imported products, consumers are not confident in government’s ability to oversee the safety of these products.” She said a recent consumer survey by Underwriters Laboratories found that 74 percent of consumers are concerned about food safety. Nielsen also argued that consumers find current labelling requirements inadequate. “Unfortunately, current food labels leave consumers confused and illinformed.” She said governments make little effort to involve consumers in policy

or regulatory planning. Neilsen noted that she took part in consultations on planned changes to CFIA policy and practices. “I was the only consumer there at the table, and I felt very much that the whole thing was manipulated, that decisions had been made prior to the consultation and there was really no opportunity to provide a policy analysis or consumer input into the process.” Cran said he thinks his work as a consumer representative on Agriculture Canada’s Science Advisory Board has made a difference on policy development.

Specified risk materials find new life in recycled plastics U of A research | University asked to find creative uses for undesirable products of livestock industry BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Getting rid of specified risk materials is a 300,000 tonne problem. These materials are the suspected carriers of BSE and under Canadian law must be destroyed and removed. However, destroying the disease agents found in brains, spinal cords and other potentially infected bits is costly. Enter researchers at the University of Alberta, who were asked to find creative uses for an undesirable product. “The industry came to us and said, ‘we have a problem, we have a lot of material that we can’t send anywhere,’ ” said chemical microbiologist David Bressler. He estimates separation and disposal costs are $70 to $200 per tonne. His research team is looking at making plastics and adhesives with high value, industrial uses. “I wanted to take that protein, render it safe and now make something more valuable,” he said. His laboratory had to be able to accept everything from raw to rendered material for the experiments.

“At the university lab I have more requirements for handling SRM than I do handling radiation material,” he said at the Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency conference June 19 in Calgary. ALMA provided funding for the research. The early work looked at turning blood and bone meal into firefighting foam. The next step was breaking down the proteins to the lowest molecular form to see if they could make bioplastics or wood adhesives. About two years ago they started figuring out what the plastic would look like. It has been tested for stress, strength and water absorption to make sure it does not dissolve in water. It proved to be a strong, durable product. While some industries are looking at using SRM for energy or fertilizer, Bressler thinks there is higher value in bioplastics and adhesives used in car parts, fence posts and other heavy duty plastics. It will never be used to package food. Researchers are also working on strengthening the plastic by combin-

Adhesives were developed to make plywood, but a more probable appli-

Alberta to sell mobile poultry slaughter plant that can process 100 birds per hour BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Alberta Agriculture is selling its 53-foot, self contained, mobile poultry abattoir. The unit has its own generator and water and sewer system, which Bert Dening of the department said will allow even an inexperienced chicken plucking crew to process more than 100 birds an hour. The Mobile Poultry Abattoir has

four rooms. The birds enter in the back room, where they are stunned, scalded and plucked. The second room has an eviscerating line with 20 hangers. The third room is a cooler, where up to 700 birds can be air chilled. The last room contains all the systems needed to operate the abattoir, including the generator, pressure systems and bathroom. Dening said the birds could be killed during the day and then

cooled, packaged and sold directly from the trailer that same evening. The project was designed to test the concept of slaughtering and inspecting animals in a clean and hygienic manner on the farm. It’s the second mobile abattoir partnership between Olds College and Alberta Agriculture. A red meat mobile abattoir was tested in 2008 and sold to the County of Big Lakes near High Prairie in 2010. Dening said the point of these trials isn’t to get into the mobile abattoir

construction business but to evaluate and test the concept. The trials have proven that mobile abattoirs are a viable alternative, especially in areas where there are no slaughter plants, he added. “We can actually go to a farm and slaughter legally with this plant. We built it as an example.” Dening said there is more interest in the chicken mobile abattoir than the red meat abattoir, which was designed to slaughter bison, beef and sheep.

“I’ve had quite a few phone calls about the plant,” he said. Dening estimates it would cost $700 a day to operate the plant. Staff slaughtered 1,000 birds last summer at five farms in close proximity to each other. He estimates it costs about 20 cents to process a bird in the plant, depending on several factors. “The point is it can be done and done quite efficiently. The beauty is it can be done on the farm.”

Versatile enters N.A. combine market Tested in action | The RT490 has operated through four harvests overseas under the name Torum 760 BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

REGINA — Versatile’s first combine, the RT490, might be new to Versatile, but it’s not completely new to the world of harvesting. The 490 h o rs e p owe r, C l ass 8 machine has been used in Europe, Russia and the former Soviet republics as the Torum 760. With four years of production, parent company Rostselmash offers the combine in Europe with either a Mercedes or Russian engine. The new Versatile gets the 11.9 litre QSX 490 h.p. variable geometry turbocharger-stuffed Cummins engine. The machine relies on a Claas driveline, three speed hydrostatic transmission and hydraulics and Winnipeg’s Macdon for pickups and draper headers up to 35 feet. “Rostselmash has been refining the machine since it came out, and we have two years of advising them about where it needs improvements and modifications for the North American market,” said Adam Reid of Versatile, who attended the release of the new machine at Canada’s Farm Progress Show, which ran June 20-22 in Regina. The machines have been in tested in Western Canada for two years and in the United States for one. “We put the 490 through its paces with wheat and barley. Canola and lentils do very well in the rotary. “We ran it in corn and soybeans. We knew it worked in corn from Russian experiences. We even tried it last season in rice in Arkansas. Big rotaries are typically good in most crops with a few adjustments and this is no exception, and we think the design makes it better than most.” While the drive train and crop gathering components were developed by other manufacturers, it’s all Rostselmash when it comes to threshing. A counter-rotating concave that turns at eight r.p.m. enables the rotor to push the crop mat and thresh over the entire processing surface rather than missing the top of concave as happens in most machines. Three adjustable concave sections surround the rotor and provide 8,371 sq. inches of threshing area. The technology is called the RCR360 and has been around since 2005, when it received an innovation award from the large Paris farm show SIMA. The concave is rotated with a large drive chain, while the cylinder spins via hydraulic drive. The rotor can run from 250 to 1,000 r.p.m. A secondary cylinder at the top of the grain return reprocesses material that is sent back to the cylinder. A cross auger distributes the grain across the processor to avoid over-

The machine’s threshing surface puts it in the Class 8 category, while the engine is closer to Class 9. A pair of beaters and a pair of oppositely footed cylinders get material to the front end of the 30 inch rotor. This combination provides initial threshing and creates a uniform crop mat that flows into the cylinder. This is a technology not unlike the process used by Claas in its Lexion machines. The Versatile has a pre-sieve to handle the early threshing that is located under the front of the concave and rotor. “It produces a very clean sample and it is highly adjustable and serviceable,” said Reid. The 340 bushel grain hopper can be emptied in about two minutes, or three bushels per second. “To work in Russia and the Ukraine, the machines can’t be relying on a lot of highly trained service technicians and repair facilities,” Reid said. “They have to be reliable and farmers need to be able to look after the maintenance.” The 490’s service access has an open design. The access to the threshing or drive components allows for full access to the systems. “We brought over $200,000 in parts with the first production machines for final testing and for the dealers to experience. We didn’t end up using any of them,” said Reid.

The RCR360 rotating concave spins at eight r.p.m. counter to the rotor inside it. The result is full use of the threshing surface, says Versatile. Access to the Versatile RT490 is excellent with components like the threshing system easy to reach with the removal of a few panels. Most maintenance items are located outside of covers and set out from the frame for easy access. A limited number of machines will be available in Canada for this fall, but the company is planning to have the combines widely available in Canada and a limited release in the U.S. for next year. The new Russian-made machines are inspected when they reach Winnipeg, and one change is made on each. The Eastern European operator and training seat is replaced with a more comfortable version for the North American market. Noticeable in the machines’ shiny

black paint are the traditional side grinder marks from cleaning up the steel and coarse casting surfaces that are more common on machines from Eastern Europe. However, the large glass surfaces and firm, well-fit controls and solid feel share the Versatile heritage. A two-wheel-drive version has a list price of $389,000, about $40,000 less than comparable machines of similar capacities. An hydraulically powered all-wheel-drive version costs $399,000.

The Versatile RT490 is powered by the QSX 11.9 litre Cummins that dwells beneath the engine cowling. The variable geometry turbo charger is intercooled and emission controlled. The Claas hydraulics and drives are fed by the American engine in the nonEuropean model. At home, it is powered by Mercedes or Russian engines.





Triple opener designed with location in mind Triple shoot opener | Precise placement of liquid start-up phosphate, nitrogen blend and row location are vital RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

Vic Wickstrom said he believed triple shoot openers currently on the market had shortcomings, so he designed a new one. Wickstrom, owner and chief engineer at VW Manufacturing in Dunmore Alta., developed the VW30PR paired row. “There’s a whole trainload (of triple shoot openers), but they fail to remember that old saying about location is everything if you want to succeed.” He said precise locations for liquid start-up phosphate, the nitrogen blend between and slightly below the paired seed rows, and the location of the two seed rows are vital. “To succeed, you have to get all three components in exactly the correct location once they’re in the soil.” Wickstrom said research shows the importance of singulation is not exclusive to corn. It’s important in all crops, even wheat. “It’s very important in small seed crops. Think about what a single wheat plant looks like when it gets away to be on its own with plenty of room to grow,” he said. “The darned thing turns itself into a bouquet. It becomes huge, with tons of tillers, heads and kernels. That’s why uniform seed distribution is so important in all crops. It gives each plant the optimal amount of space to reach its full potential.” Wickstrom think his new VW30PR is just about as close to corn-caliber uniformity as anyone can get with an air drill. He said it works as well with small seeded crops as it does with large seeds. The seeds are not spread out across the width of the openings but end up in a narrow straight line. “When we stop and dig into the seed trench with a knife, they’re all lined up like little beer bottles in a row. There’s no clumps or bunches of seeds and no empty gaps,” he said. Many people think singulation with a drill depends on the air delivery system, manifolds, seed runs and the boot, but that’s not the whole story, said Wickstrom, who has been designing, manufacturing and marketing openers for 30 years. “A seed comes blasting down the line, down the front tube of our boot. But the question of why it ends up where it does in the soil depends on what happens when it goes through the opener. It’s all about location,” he said. He said the VW30 has a raised ramp on the middle of the floor in its chamber. It splits the seeds equally — one group for the left seed row and one group for the right seed row. “The ramp sends the seeds right out to the walls of the chamber, and they remain tight against the walls until they exit the opener. That’s how we get such a straight, narrow line of seeds. They never get blasted helter skelter like birdshot from a shotgun.” He said the two seed rows are almost exactly 2 ½ inches apart. Each seed is one inch off to the side of and 3/8 inch above the nitrogen band that runs down the middle. The bottom side of the opener has a heel that rises 3/8 inch from the flat

Gavin, left, and Colin Greenwald look at an opener on their air drill during a field day held on their farm June 12. |


ABOVE LEFT TO RIGHT: The ramp in the middle of the chamber floor has a peak in the centre to divide the seeds equally between the left and right rows. Seeds are blown against the side walls of the chamber, exactly 2.5 inches apart. They maintain their 2.5 inch separation in two straight narrow rows after they exit the opener. The 3/8 inch heel on the bottom of the opener clears a trench for the nitrogen fertilizer blend. The two seed rows end up one inch to the side and 3/8 inch above the nitrogen trench. The body is 28 percent industry-standard chrome, while the heel and all wear points are carbide plates welded to the body. The church shaped recess in the bottom surface is cosmetic. The two blue plastic tubes dribble liquid start-up fertilizer into the seed rows. The VW30PR opener itself is the same for all air drill models. Different boots are designed to adapt the opener to different drills. | RON LYSENG PHOTOS surface. It cuts a groove so that the nitrogen fertilizer blend coming down the rear pipe ends up located midway between the seed rows and 3/8 inch below the seed rows. “That’s not a whole lot deeper than the seed, but remember at one time, in days gone there was a belief that nitrogen had to be buried all the way down to China. That has finally been

proven false in most people’s eyes. “But now some people say seed and nitrogen fertilizer can be on the same plane. So I decided 3/8 inch below the seed level and one inch from the seed row is the best location.” The two blue plastic tubes for liquid startup fertilizer line up with the seed rows. Wickstrom said he is considering the possibility of running high-

pressure anhydrous down the rear fertilizer tube. The opener body is made of 28 percent industry-standard chrome steel. All the applied, hard-surface plates welded to the body are carbide, including a carbide plate at each rear corner so the body doesn’t wear into a canoe-shape. “We have carbide plates at every

wear point so the opener always maintains its original shape,” he said. “It’s basically an expanded version of the VW11FC opener that seeds millions of acres around the world every year, so we use the same steel and carbide that works on the VW11FC.” CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

Farmers try triple shoot openers Paired rows work well on weedy, sandy land BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

Three complete sets of the new VW30PR openers hit the soil this spring, along with dozens of openers bought by farmers who wanted to install just one as a comparison. Brothers Gavin and Colin Greenwold of Fox Valley, Sask., installed the new openers this spring on their 45 foot Flexi-Coil drill, which is equipped for full liquid fertilizer. They seeded 3,200 acres into mud. “It was ugly stuff; pure mud,” Gavin Greenwold said. “Behind the tires, the odd opener did plug. Maybe once or twice a day, but that will happen with any opener. And we were going too soon to try and get it done.” Greenwold said they could see good separation between the paired rows, despite the mud. “We could really see the difference today (June 20) when we were trying to spray,” he said. “We got three inches of rain this week. When I drove down the rows that were under water, you can really see the distinct separation between the pairs of rows. They’re absolutely straight and true and the spacing between the rows looks perfect.” Greenwold put the openers on 10

inch row centres, leaving a maximum gap of seven inches between each pair of rows. The brothers have a mixture of heavy and sandy land. “On the sandy soil, weed control is too difficult with too much space between the rows. That’s why paired rows works so well for us. If we had gone with 10 inch row spacing and a single row, I know we’d have worse weed problems.”


The flat bottom side of the opener has an unusual hollow recess shaped like the front of a traditional church building. Wickstrom said it’s purely cosmetic. Material isn’t needed in that area so they made the recess to save the cost and weight of the 28 percent chrome steel. The same VW30PR paired row opener fits all paralink, C-shank and Edge-On drills sold on the Prairies. VW Manufacturing simply makes


different boots for each model. For more information, contact Wickstrom at 403-528-3350 or visit

REGINA — An Alberta farmer has spearheaded research that may help canola producers increase yields and reduce costs. “For the guy with the precision air drill, he can still do a bad job of seeding canola by going too fast or having too much air or too much (fertilizer) going down with the seed,” said Craig Shaw of Lacombe. “I wondered about 50 percent mortality (in canola seedlings). If we could refine the planting process, maybe we could save a pound or two on the rates by keeping more plants alive.” Shaw convinced Alberta Canola and some partners to buy a planter that is typically used in the U.S. corn and bean belt and put it to work on farms and at Agriculture Canada’s research facility in Lacombe. “If we can even up the canola crop, have it not compete with itself for nutrients and stunting out and killing smaller seedlings and generally be more efficient in our production, it might be five bushels more (yield) and save a couple of pounds of seed. Is that $70 dollars an acre, or more?” he said while attending Canada’s Farm Progress Show in Regina. “We are trying to find that out using the planter.” Agriculture Canada researchers and Lacombe area farmers are working with a heavy duty Monosem planter. It is 12 feet wide and set to 15 inch centres. Shaw said researchers and producers are learning how to use the machine in Canadian stubble and trash. “It’s new to us,” he said. Brian Sieker of Monosem said farmers have used vacuum planters for years to seed canola in the south-

So having it being used in the home of canola is big,” he said. The Monosem planter’s metering system can handle crops with large, irregular seeds such as kidney beans as well as seeds that are smaller than canola. The disc type planter uses swappable discs, and the canola unit, which is more typically used with onions, has 90 holes per disc. A fan driven vacuum holds the seeds to the disc plates and a brass knife peels the seed from the disc and drops it down a gravity seed tube into the furrow, which is created by a single Ingersoll disc with a gauge wheel

for depth control. “It’s very simple, very low maintenance and very precise. We custom build them so we are looking at different options for putting fertilizer down,” said Sieker. Each seed run has its own seed pot and is independent from its neighbour, unless it is paired for twin row planting. A gas-filled, coil over type shock helps the seeding unit follow the soil’s surface. Fertilizer delivery for single pass planting can be accommodated, but Sieker said the system is usually paired with liquid and anhydrous for midrow banding with a framemounted coulter. “We are set up to accept in-row fertilizer, including dry and liquid products, like Alpine, but we leave the fertilizer delivery to the producer,” he said. The planter system in Alberta is still being refined. Researchers are experimenting with different row spacings. “I am thinking a 15 inch spacing might be good and with a twined row system,” Sieker said. “It canopies in well and still leaves good room at the ground for air movement to keep disease down.” He said the ability to do precision planting, without high airflows and battering from fertilizer and distributor turns, should result in more evenly maturing crops. Sieker said trash managers and different closing wheels will be in place for canola planting next season in Canada. More trials this fall in Colorado and in the southern and midwestern U.S. will benefit from what has been learned in Alberta. Shaw said the system seems to be working well this season, “but everything looks good this year. We’ll know more at the end of harvest.”

In fact, they are now half the price or less. That doesn’t mean that most readers will have seen roof after roof of solar installations. This is because most Canadians live in jurisdictions where conventional electricity is still fairly inexpensive, ranging from five to 15 cents per kilowatt hour. As well, there are few incentives, except in Ontario. Certainly, Ontario residents have seen large increases in PV installations, which are less attributable to solar PV prices and more to the fact that there has been a strong and popular program to encourage residents and businesses to create energy to compensate for decommissioning of the province’s coalfired power generators. Many Ontario residents are using the feed-it-tariff (FIT) and microFIT programs to set up their own power generating systems to feed back into the grid. However, PV growth has been enormous in the United States. The Solar Energy Industries Association indicates that solar installations doubled in 2011 over the previous year, with more than 1.8 gigawatts installed, enough to power 370,000 homes. There is a wide variety of incentives to help people who want to install a solar PV system in the U.S. Many are state policies rather than national policies, including grants and rebates, loans, tax credits, property tax incentives and higher power rates. The most significant factor in the huge growth of solar PV installations in the U.S. has been the decreased cost of solar panels. Cheaper prices for solar panels sounds like a great thing, and it has been for the installation sector. However, a significant number of American solar PV manufacturers have declared bankruptcy as prices dropped. It seems like a contradiction to have problems when the market is at its best. To understand this, think about the possible source and pricing of solar panels. As in so many other industries, an increasing amount of solar PV manufacturing is being done in China, which forces the price down. Cheap Chinese solar panels showing up in the American marketplace should not come as a surprise. However, American PV manufacturers claim that China is dumping cheap solar panels into the U.S. market. The term dumping implies that a company or country puts their product into someone else’s marketplace at a price below the cost of production. U.S. manufacturers are claiming that the Chinese government was providing subsidies for the solar industry. However, unlike the U.S., which aims its subsidies at the purchaser, the Chinese were providing money directly to the manufacturers. This implies that besides the cheap labour and lower working standards inherent in Chinese goods, the competition was implicitly unfair. U.S. manufacturers convinced the U.S. government to do an investigation. When the smoke cleared, the American government agreed that

the Chinese were guilty of dumping and assessed a significant tariff on Chinese companies selling PV cells or panels made from them. The duty will be 31 percent for 60 companies and 250 percent for the bulk of the Chinese companies. Some U.S. firms who have direct interest in Chinese manufacturing companies have complained, but they will have to live with it as well. For some, the tariff is seen as a calculated political move in a year of a presidential election, while others say it is a long-overdue response to China and its attempt to dominate the solar industry by false means. The effect this tariff has on the stabilization of the U.S. solar manufacturing and installation sectors will be seen over time, but at the moment there is a division in the U.S. solar industry. Some for, some against The Coalition for American Solar Manufacturing was formed to lobby the government to institute such a tariff, believing that the cheap, dumped panels were crushing the U.S. domestic solar industry. However, companies that supply polysilicon, which is the fundamental component of current solar panels, suggest that such a tariff will be devastating for the growth of solar technology in the U.S. The distribution and installation components of the U.S. solar industry formed the Coalition for Affordable Solar Energy, which suggests the tariff will slash solar installations in the country. It argues that this will have more dramatic results for the U.S. economy. Because the tariff is a U.S. national policy, there are no direct effects on other countries. However, Europe is also considering imposing tariffs. Canada’s PV manufacturing is entirely situated in Ontario and is a direct offshoot of that province’s solar PV policies. As part of the Ontario FIT and Micro-FIT programs, a minimum of 60 percent of an installed system must be manufactured in Ontario. Labour is included in installation costs, but labour is less of a component in solar PV systems than in many other installations, so much of the rest of the materials, including racking systems and panels, wiring and electrical components, must be made in Ontario for a project to qualify. In a way, this has blocked the cheapest panels out of the Ontario market. Cheap Chinese silicon cells are likely being used, but the panels themselves are made in Ontario. Because there are no PV manufacturers in other parts of the country, our government is not likely to follow the U.S. lead, so cheap panels will continue to be available. It still doesn’t make installed systems inexpensive at this point, but with increasing electrical rates and decreasing solar prices, it is just a matter of time before installations start to climb throughout Canada.

Drill size grows Available next year | Bourgault adds more feet and flotation to the new 86 foot seed drill BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM



White cockle is a tough weed to control once it reaches its short-lived perennial stage. The weed’s proper name is Lychnis alba and is also known as evening lychnis and white campion. It produces large numbers of seeds, has a tough, deep taproot and once established is challenging to remove from fields. Mature plants are 10 to 30 inches tall and have oblong, hairy leaves with smooth edges. Flowers are fragrant, white and about an inch across. They open at night. University of Saskatchewan research indicates that a two stage approach to the weed is the most effective.

Dicamba, Banvel mixed with 2,4-D or MCPA are used in cereal crops when the weed is in the two to four leaf stage. Dicamba is applied at a rate of .12 litres per acre, while 2,4-D or MCPA, in a 500 gram formulation, are applied at .35 litres. A pre-seed burn-off will control seedlings but often not perennials. Ken Sapsford of the U of S suggests that a second application of herbicide can be effective in a cereal crop after glyphosate or a mix of glyphosate and florasulam, Prepass or tribenuron and metsulfuron, Express Pro, or 2,4-D. Group 2 combination products that can control white cockle in spring wheat include thifensulfuron, tribenuron and metsulfuron or Precision Pac 23235, tribenuron with 2,4-D and dicamba and Precision

Pac 2525, as well as thifensulfuron, tribenuron with the addition of MCPA. Tribenuron and metsulfuron should not be applied if the burndown application contains those products. In alfalfa and clover, white cockle is treated with 2,4-DB products like Cobutox, Embutox or Caliber (the 625 grams per litre formulation). Timothy, alfalfa and clover seed growers find white cockle seeds impossible to clean from their crops. In established pasture, a mix of dicamba, 2,4-D and mecoprop-p, DyVel DSp, can be applied at a rate of 1.3 litres per acre. There is a 30 day grazing restriction on these products. Steel is a control option for this weed.

REGINA — Bourgault has added a few more feet and a lot more flotation to its drill. “We see the need for more flotation when drills get this big, and the new hitch has the benefit of letting us manage skew as well,” said Bourgault Industries engineer Deven Lung. His group developed the company’s latest drill, an 86 foot version of the Paralink 3320 design the company offers. He said the new drill will be on the market for next season, and it was a hit with farmers during testing this spring. Lung said a pair of steerable 800/65R32 tires on the front of the

main frame carry the added weight of the drill, which is relatively minor, and provide better control because of the hydraulic control that locks the drill’s hitch perpendicular to the toolbar. As well, the frame gets a set of 16.5 x 16.1 duals at the back to increase flotation in the field. Lu n g s a i d B o u r gau l t ow n e r s stopped at the company’s booth at Canada’s Farm Progress Show June 20-22 in Regina to ask if the steering flotation units were available on smaller drills. “Not for 2013, but from all the interest, it might be an option down the road,” he said. Another benefit of the steerable axle is improved trailing in transport, Lung added.

At 86 feet, the 3320-86 Paralink drill is the largest Bourgault makes. The drill’s steerable, high flotation axle improves skewing due to the ability to lock it into place when seeding. During a turn, it releases the pressure on the system, allowing it to steer easily. | MICHAEL RAINE PHOTO

Rest sustains pastures Riparian areas need care | Minimize grazing during sensitive periods BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Darrel and Peggy Walker have adopted new cattle management methods on their farm at Langham, Sask. | DAN YATES PHOTOS

Hardworking ranchers are advised to keep rest in mind. Lorne Klein told a recent pasture school program in Saskatoon that a generation ago, the word “rest” might not have been in a prairie producer’s vocabulary or in his plans for pasture. “Up until 20 years ago, up until 30 years ago, the level of pasture management in Saskatchewan, in Western Canada, was really pretty low for the majority of people,” said Klein, a regional forage specialist with Saskatchewan Agriculture. “The average family had a few cows and they had one pasture and they put the cows out there all summer.... In the last 30 years, we have just come so far with understanding that you manage pasture.” As herd sizes have grown, so too has many producers’ understanding of the role rest plays in an effective grazing management plan. Under such a system, cattle are moved through pasture to allow adequate times for forages to grow while also understanding producers’ needs to maximize livestock weight gains per acre. Over his career, 61-year-old Darrel Walker has watched cattle management practices change. “This didn’t come easy for me. There’s a lot of changes in cattle handling methods and feeding cattle and extended grazing periods,” Walker told fellow producers at his ranch


near Langham, Sask. “All of this is new to me and I’m old school. I started out with a cattle prod chasing cattle really hard and making them do what I wanted them to do. I started with much smaller herds and keeping cattle confined much more than we are now.” Dustin Ostrander, a range management specialist with Agriculture Canada, reminded producers to minimize grazing during sensitive periods. He said riparian areas are a particular concern. Rest after grazing could total 30 to 60 days on a tame pasture and as much as a year on a native range. “Grazing management is really a combination of science and art,” said Ostrander. He said the art is adapting that information to the unique environment and challenges posed by a producers’ land. Walker and his wife, Peggy Walker, toured producers through pasture on their ranch outside Langham, Sask. Walker said his business has undergone a large expansion over the last few years from 220 head to more than

1,000 today as he rebuilds a herd that was pared down during the BSE crisis. Next year he will calve more than 800 first-calf heifers. The Walkers took on more rented land to facilitate the expansion and are allowed to manage the pasture themselves. “We’re free to rotate the pastures as we want, keeping in mind that we envision this to be a long-term relationship with our landowners,” said Peggy. “So we’re going to look after the pasture. We’re not going to abuse it because we need it for the following year and the year after that. So we do a lot of things differently. Stockpiling grass was a term you’d never hear a few years ago and now that’s one of our major objectives.” The couple runs three herds, rotating them through a system of 50 quarter sections in which most individual pastures are a quarter section in size. Cattle are on straight grass by late April and will stay that way until December. Most of the land is grazed only once a year. “It works pretty good,” said Darrel. “But depending on the year and the amount of grass, we’ve found the last two years we’re moving faster than I’m used to and I struggle with that. I want to take every blade of grass and I’m having a hard time getting over that.” He said the moves can be difficult and take several days, which makes good hired help essential. The Walkers’ ranch has one full-time employee, but in the summer they’ll have up to five extra workers.


Truckers big carriers of viruses, bacteria Contamination risks | PRRS, circovirus and parvovirus can be killed by proper sanitation, cleaning procedures BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

DES MOINES, Iowa — Lots of lethal bacteria and viruses crawl around on hog transport truck trailers, but the most dangerous organism sits in the cab. “The driver is the greatest risk on the truck today,” said Butch Baker of Iowa State University, a former PIC veterinar y and disease control expert. “They’re the ones who can contaminate the trucks, they’re the ones that recontaminate the trucks, they’re the ones who break the rules, they’re the ones you’ve got to watch and they’re the ones you’ve got to train.”

Baker said sterilizing trucks is a difficult and intensive process, but research and many pig breeding companies have proven that it can be done. PRRS, circovirus and parvovirus can all be killed by diligent cleaning, disinfecting, drying and super heating. However, he said it is all pointless if the truck driver gets out and talks to the guys washing and disinfecting the truck and then drives to the next farm and gets out to talk to the barn workers there. “The only way you’re going to make this thing biosecure is to fix the driver situation,” said Baker. “You have to monitor and you have to verify that things are done right.”

Baker said his experience at PIC while PRRS was being eliminated from the company’s pigs helped him develop the belief that the disease can be eradicated and kept from spreading. Strict cleaning and drying protocols with the company’s trucks ended the chance of breeding animals taking the virus to buyers. A full fleet of PRRS-negative trucks servicing PRRS-negative herds ensured the disease was not trucked around. “We never delivered PRRS to another customer by truck,” said Baker. PRRS can be easily controlled. “PRRS is a wuss,” compared to circovirus or parvovirus, which “take a flamethrower to kill,” he said. However, everything has to be done

right. Cleaning facilities are useless if they recycle untreated water that just spreads the virus to other trucks. Disinfectants need to reach every part of the truck and every place the disease is hiding. Drying needs to dry everything, which can involve leaving a truck for 24 hours or longer after being cleaned. Heating requires highenough heat for a long-enough time. Baker said most over-the-road truck cleaning set-ups don’t eliminate the disease and probably spread it to every truck that goes through. Cleaning systems need to ensure that clean trucks are segregated from dirty areas and emerge sterilized. However, farmers also need to ensure the trucker doesn’t re-infect

his truck through negligent behaviour, Baker said. Fortunately, GPS tracking allows companies to track where their trucks and drivers are and that “they’re not sitting for eight hours at a truck stop beside four slaughter hog trucks.” Another procedure that works is to put seals on cleaned trucks that are only removed at the next farm. That’s what his company did. “If it showed up without a seal, the lowest-paid person on the farm was empowered to send it back,” said Baker. “Pretty soon the drivers became the best inspectors because they didn’t want to have to go through the process again.”





Animal welfare survived BSE crisis, statistics show BSE’s darkest days | Welfare of older cows was at risk following BSE crisis but record was good BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

SASKATOON — Cow welfare held up surprisingly well during the dark days of Canada’s BSE crisis, according to data collected by the cattle industry. Market prices plummeted when the border closed to all Canadian cattle after an Alberta cow was found to have BSE. Four months later, the U.S. border re-opened to boneless young beef, but prices for cows were so low that producers kept them on the farm. Industry officials worried about the older cows’ ability to withstand transport when it came time to market these older animals. Reynold Bergen, science director for the Beef Cattle Research Council, said statistics show that transportrelated animal condemnations never exceeded the pre-BSE number during the post-BSE cow marketing period of 2003-09. “The prevalence of negative transport outcomes did not increase for Canadian cattle, even when economics were extremely challenging,” Bergen told the recent International Symposium on Beef Cattle Welfare. He attributed some of that success to a concentrated communication program that urged producers not to ship old, thin and weak animals. “Don’t do anything that you’re not willing to explain on the national news and always act like somebody might be watching because they could be,” Bergen said. “That message really resonated with a lot of producers.” He said the Canadian Food Inspection Agency kept producers informed about laws surrounding animal welfare. It also operated its BSE surveillance program and was alert to unfit animals. At about the same time, the cattle

Lessons learned about market cow transport during the BSE crisis are paying off today. These heifers in a pasture along Yarrow Creek in southern Alberta won’t have to face shipping for a few years. | BARB GLEN PHOTO industry developed the Certified Livestock Transport program to train livestock truck drivers, while packers strictly enforced truck load limits and arrival times. Packers and auction markets deducted money for animals that were condemned upon arrival or had to be destroyed and disposed of after getting to auction. That discouraged many producers from shipping cows best handled on the farm. The factors that preserved animal welfare during BSE continue to be used and modified in today’s cow marketing, said Bergen.

“Some animals are more valuable than others and we need to provide the same standard of care for these less valuable animals as we do to the ones that are highly valuable.” Bergen said in an interview following his presentation that market cows are at highest risk of injury or death in transport because they are older and have often just come off pasture or just off the milking line, often in less than ideal body condition. “They are less able to withstand the rigours of a long trip, especially in winter.” The industry has tried to quantify

the number of dead or downed cows, with the goal of making regulatory amendments that protect both cow health and beef quality, he said. Information about proper cow shipping and on-farm retention and euthanasia will again be distributed in coming months, this time to Ontario and the Maritimes now that the Levinoff-Colbex cull cow plant has closed in St. Cyrille de Wendover, Que. Cows that used to be shipped there will now face longer transport times to Toronto, Guelph or Pennsylvania, all of which are at least 600 kilometres farther away.

A similar situation arose in 2009 when the XL cull cow plant closed in Moose Jaw, Sask., and cows had to be shipped another 500 to 700 km to Alberta plants in Brooks or High River. At that time, the CFIA and the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association urged producers to use common sense and compassion when deciding whether to ship weaker animals. “We think it helped, so the messaging … we’re making it available to the Ontario cattlemen and to the Maritime Beef Council so they can use the same messaging, or they can ask us to do it for them,” Bergen said.


Producers must know cow’s health history when buying Testing and diagnosis | Risk factors include using commercial colostrum replacer, commingled animals in community grazing systems BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Improved testing and an increase in live animal trade shows that Johne’s disease is more common than previously suspected, said a University of Calgary veterinary researcher. Steve Hendrick of the university’s veterinary faculty told a recent beef health conference in Calgary that producers who buy cattle with an unknown health history are welcoming infections to their farms. “As producers try to expand quickly to take advantage of different market signals, much as we love biosecurity, it is the economics that drive it,” he said. “If you don’t already have Johne’s disease, for heaven’s sake don’t buy it. Ask lots of questions.”

The disease was first described in 1895 and is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis (MAP). All provinces have agreed to a voluntary screening program. Hendrick said some international markets could be lost without surveillance. Johne’s is a distant relative of leprosy and tuberculosis, and three strains have been identified for cattle, sheep and bison. It appears the animals can pass the different strains among themselves. T h e re i s a n a s s o c i at i o n w i t h Crohn’s disease in humans but no one knows the precise connection. Various studies have found that in some countries up to three percent of retail milk carries MAP bacteria. It is a progressive infection that harms the lining of the intestine, resulting in the villa being unable to

absorb nutrients. Cows eat well but develop diarrhea and become thin. It takes three to six years before the animal is noticeably sick. The bacteria does not multiply outside the cow but may survive more than six months in low pH soils. Some research shows it may survive freezing for up to 12 months. Young calves seem to be most susceptible, but the biological basis is unknown. “The immune system of those calves is still developing and as a result they are the most susceptible,” Hendrick said. A survey in the United States found cows that were strong positive on the blood tests had lower weaning weights of up to 50 pounds. Weaning weights were reduced by 70 lb. if the mother cow was shedding bacteria in manure because it could not pro-

duce enough milk. Canadian studies have looked at blood samples, fecal cultures and farm water samples. MAP has been found at low levels in blood and manure. Testing does not provide an accurate diagnosis because tests won’t find it if the animal is not passing the bacteria. One of the risk factors is using commercial colostrum replacer on the farm because pasteurization does not kill the bacteria. Beef producers are advised not to use dairy colostrum. Animals commingled in community grazing systems could be exposed to infected manure. Cows on intensive grazing systems could pick up the disease because they are in close contact with one another. Forcing cattle to clean the pasture

to the ground could be riskier than allowing them to clip the grass and move on. However, there is no research to prove this is a direct transmission route. Researchers have also collected wildlife specimens from gophers, sparrows, mice, voles, rats, deer and rabbits, but no tests came back positive, even though MAP was present on nearby farms. Hendrick said producers need to focus on calf health. “Whatever you are doing to control scours, good bedding and hygiene will go a long way to prevent Johne’s infections,” he said. He recommended raising heifers separately from adults. Some producers allow heifers to graze a pasture after the cows are finished, which is another good way to spread disease.





Researchers share info gleaned in dairy barn Practical studies | Information on animal welfare, feed rations, pain management and calf weaning shared with producers BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

AGASSIZ, B.C. — Farmers may sometimes feel that they are from Venus, while scientists may seem like they are from Mars. Bringing the two into the same orbit is one of the goals at the University of British Columbia’s dairy education and research centre in Agassiz. The centre was established 15 years ago as a working dairy farm, where 250 registered Holsteins are milked twice each day. As well, graduate students and researchers from around the world study the animals’ behaviour, welfare and health. Much of the research is directed at answering farmers’ questions about feed intake, improved illness diagnosis, handling lameness and improved heifer development. “Our research program is on the cow end, animal welfare and behaviour,” said facility manager Nelson Dinn, who grew up on a dairy farm and is a UBC graduate. “All the research we do here is applicable to our producers and is useful to the Canadian dairy system.” The work is intended to offer hands-on, practical solutions. For example, research from the centre contributed in large part to the most recent dairy code of practice. The centre is self supporting and does not receive subsidies from the university or its landlord, Agriculture Canada. Income comes from sales of milk and cattle. The centre grows most of its own forage. There are six staff besides the researchers and students. The students can live on the site and do farm chores in exchange for rent. Animal welfare and improved cow comfort dominate. “The animal welfare program at UBC is one of the most recognized animal welfare programs anywhere, and so the demand to come here and study is here,” Dinn said. Students from 30 countries have worked at the site in the last decade. “The more students we are able to put through here, the more research gets done,” he said. About 500 animals live at the centre. All wear electronic ear tags, some may wear special necklaces or ankle bracelets and a few have had a dye job with special markings so they can be further observed on video. The farm raises its own replacement heifers, and no new animals are introduced from other farms. Bull calves that aren’t involved in a research program are sold and probably end up in the Alberta feeding system. Local farmers buy surplus heifers. Regular research reports written for laymen are released to all B.C. dairy producers and are included on the centre’s website. Some of the research has reversed common practices. For example, research is changing the way newborn calves are fed. The old code of practice recommended giving a calf 10 percent of its body weight in milk. However, research at the Agassiz centre has shown these growing

youngsters need more. Calves traditionally received a bucket of milk in the morning and the evening, but the centre provides nipple feeders and allows the calves to suckle on demand. “We’ve done a lot of research feeding the calf as much as it wants. On average, a calf given free choice will drink 10 to 12 litres of milk per day, which is about 20 percent (of body weight),” said Dinn. “It takes advantage of that early growth potential of the calf.” The new re commendation is included in the most recent code of practice. The centre is also testing calf housing. Instead of rearing a calf alone in a pen, calves are placing two to a pen for better socialization. Calves reared as a pair appear to adapt to new feeding systems within a few hours. Those reared individually take up to 50 hours to figure out the new feed regime and often start to lose weight. Pairing also stabilizes calves as they move into larger groups and new situations. “That is one advantage of group housing, is the early socialization of calves,” he said. A study is also starting to assess the impacts of leaving calves with their mothers for longer periods. A student from Norway is leading this project. Weaning studies are using computerized feed and water systems to measure how much each calf con-


sumes per day. Each trough sits on an independent platform that sends all feeding and drinking data to a computer. Calves’ body weight is recorded when they drink milk or water. The calves also wear a special wrap on their ankles containing a directional switch. It tells the computer if the animal is standing or resting. Cameras observe behaviour around the clock. Pain management studies encouraged the centre to change its dehorning practices. At four days of age, the animal receives a small amount of sedative, the horn bud is shaved and caustic paste is used for dehorning. “From a calf pain standpoint, that worked very well,” Dinn said. Research projects also include adult animals. Researchers have learned that cows suffering from metritis after calving had markedly different eating behaviour up to two weeks before calving. The computerized feeding

equipment indicates this change before the onset of disease. Nearby pastures serve as a living laboratory for lameness studies as well as behavioural observations. “Four weeks of pasture access had a significant improvement on their degree of lameness,” Dinn said. However, not all farms can release cows onto pasture. They may not have enough land or the ability to produce enough nutrition to maintain a modern, heavy milking cow on forage alone. That has led to improving barn features to mimic pasture. A better barn design that allows cows to more easily move around helped with foot health. Lameness was reduced significantly when cows were able to stand with four feet on a dry surface. Many people may think that cows prefer living outdoors, but the centre has found they split their time evenly between the pasture and barn. When temperatures are above 22 C, the cows prefer indoors where they

can eat or lie down in stalls filled with sand. Sand has proven better than shavings or straw bedding. Urine is absorbed and the cows tend to clean the stalls themselves by kicking out sand during the day. Manure is cleaned out while the cows are in the milking parlour. The sand is eventually spread back on the land. Cow comfort is another primary area of study. Researchers have assessed stall width and design, and producers can use those findings when building or remodelling a barn. Manure management is a major issue for this heavily populated region of the Fraser Valley with its high precipitation levels of 1,800 millimetres per year. Winter spreading isn’t allowed, and farmers need to have storage for at least five months. UBC engineers have patented technology to remove phosphorus from human waste, and a student pilot project is now working on a similar approach to manage dairy manure.





Vaccine terminology needs clarification to avoid confusion ANIMAL HEALTH



ore mistakes are being made because of a fuzzy understanding of what diseases a vaccine controls. The confusion centres on the “way” vaccines. Outsiders, new employees, volunteers and even staff and professionals at veterinary clinics find the terms confusing. I once saw a wreck where a producer was giving a five-way viral, thinking it contained blackleg protection, and ended up with a blackleg outbreak. Another producer had a tetanus outbreak after using an eightway that didn’t contain tetanus. In the old days, the way vaccines — two-way, three-way, seven-way and eight-way — all referred to protection against clostridial organisms. They provided varying coverage in the blackleg family of vaccines, but that is not always the case today. Perhaps we need a slightly modified way of explaining things. Producers mistakenly think every blackleg vaccine is the same. They are not. Today we have seven-way, eightway and now the new, essentially nine-way vaccine called Covexin Plus. The latter means eight-way “plus” and provides protection against nine clostridial organisms, including true blackleg, tetanus and redwater (clostridium hemolyticum) disease. Two-way and three-way vaccinations were also available in the early years of blackleg vaccination. In our area, almost everyone is using the broader coverage multivalent vaccines, which are still cheap as far as vaccines are concerned. Different clostridial organisms are cropping up in different parts of the country, from hemolyticum in west-central Alberta to shigella near the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border. To confuse matters somewhat, the seven- or eight-way clostridials are often combined with histophilus in the same vaccine. Not all clostridials are created equal. Some have tetanus and some don’t, so make sure the diseases you want protection against are included

in the vaccine you buy. Tetanus must be in your vaccination protocol if you band older calves. The big mistake is made with the four-way and five-way viral vaccines. They are commonly used to prevent respiratory disease in calves and the feedlot as well as to prevent reproductive diseases causing abortions in cow herds. We should emphasize the word “viral” in the name of these vaccines to make it clearer for everyone. Producers make the mistake of thinking there is blackleg protection in these vaccines. Most large pharmaceutical companies produce one of these vaccines or several in combination with

bacterial components. The difference between four-way and five-way virals is that five-way has another type of bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) added. The term “way” really means the number of organisms or groups of organisms the vaccine protects against, whether bacterial or viral. No vaccine has 100 percent protection, and successful disease control depends on the immune response, exposure to the number of organisms, proper vaccination technique, parasite burden and nutrition level. However, vaccination is a good biosecurity defense. The trend is toward broader disease protection with the five-way vac-

cines. Years ago, we started with three-way virals having infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR), BVD and parainfluenza-3 virus (PI3), but soon bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV) was added and now the second type of BVD, which provides more comprehensive and cross protection. As mentioned, some fiveway vaccines also have the pneumonia bacterials pasteurella multocida and mannheimia hemolytica. Producers who have cows with lepto and vibrio can add protection for that to the five-way virals. The most important point is to know the diseases you want to prevent and then rely on your veterinary clinic to recommend the best combi-

nations for your farm and geographic area, keeping exposure potential in mind. You can see the confusion we create with these colloquial terms. I once had a smar t and wellrespected lawyer in a legal case ask me, “isn’t an eight-way vaccine twice as good as a four-way vaccine?” You can see how loose terms make it confusing. Take time to examine and question vaccines you buy. Herd health and productivity depends on careful selection of the proper vaccine combinations.

Program to help ag firms market abroad BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Saskatchewan agriculture minister Lyle Stewart used the backdrop of Canada’s Farm Progress Show to announce a new $1 million international market development program. The program is designed to help businesses and organizations establish or expand their international market presence, host or attend more trade missions and expand market access for producers. Stewart said Saskatchewan is Cana d a’s t o p e x p o r t i n g p rov i n c e. Agri-food exports are up 60 percent since 2007 and topped $10.2 billion in 2011 to edge out Ontario for top spot. In particular, canola seed exports have gone up from $856 million to more than $2.1 billion. The province exports 96 percent of Canada’s lentils, 88 percent of its

Eligible expenses will include travel to international trade shows and missions, bringing buyers to Saskatchewan and producing marketing material and advertising. Farm Progress Show manager Rob O’Connor said the show could use the help to bring even more international visitors to Regina than it already does. This year, more than 600 were expected from 55 countries. Surveys have shown that the economic impact of each international guest is $2.5 million. “I think the return on investment is one that anybody would take,” he said. Canadian Western Agribition also focuses on international marketing, and chief executive officer Marty Seymour said the show would likely take advantage of the new program. Last year the show attracted more than 800 guests from 79 countries.

Seymour said the provincial government has recognized the need to connect buyers and sellers. “We have to focus on bringing people in,” he said. Stewart added that the Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership, which receives government funding and membership fees, does good work to bring in foreign buyers and promote the province’s industry and producers. This program will supplement that work. “There are probably options that are seen by others in the industry as well,” he said. “The ultimate goal is to further expand markets for our agricultural products.

Update to B.C. animal health act fails to pass muster Proposed bill | B.C.’s privacy commissioner criticized one section of the bill that could prevent disease information disclosures BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Last month’s controversy over a proposed update to British Columbia’s Animal Health Act was overblown, say livestock officials. B.C.’s Liberal government had tried in May to pass a bill that would have established a new process for disease outbreak detection and containment. However, a section of the act concerning privacy drew criticism from B.C.’s information and privacy commissioner and opposition MPs. “A person must refuse, despite the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, to disclose ... information that would reveal that a notifiable or reportable disease is or may be present in a specific place or on or in a specific vehicle,” reads Section 16 of the act, which would also increase the maximum penalty from $2,000 to $75,000. The bill was one of four in the B.C. legislature not passed when the spring session ended at the end of May, although officials expect the bill to return in the future. “Who knows what will happen in the fall or the spring sittings. We’re not sure, because we are in an election next year,” said Geraldine Aus-

ton, general manager of B.C. Pork. “No one is really sure how quickly this will come back.” N D P a g r i c u l t u re c r i t i c L a n a Popham applauded the bill’s demise. “British Columbians expect their government to follow our Freedom of Information law, and not to try and hide animal disease information from the public,” she wrote in a blog. B.C. Cattlemen’s Association general manager Kevin Boon, whose organization was consulted before the bill’s appearance in the legislature, said the act isn’t designed to prevent the disclosure of information, but instead is intended to allow government and other officials to conduct an unimpeded investigation free from interference. Previous false reports of anaplasmosis and brucellosis outbreaks have hurt producers and industry in the province, he said. “We have to make sure that these allegations don’t get made without the proper investigation.” The update also proposed new surveillance zones to monitor areas around a quarantine zone and increased disease control measures, which would require producers to keep records of an animal’s origin and movement and report any dis-

ease or unusual illness. “What I gathered out of what was going on was more a political issue than it was actually the meat and bones of what the act said and what the act could do or couldn’t do,” said Boon. “It was more to do with the process and the definitions of who the people were.” Many of the proposed updates to the act, which was last updated in 1948, were intended to harmonize the legislation with that of other provinces and trading partners. “If some neighbour phoned up the media and said, ‘I think there’s something going on on that farm,’ they’re permitted to do that and they’re not going to be sued for it,” said Auston. “So public and media and everything, it’s still the same as it always was. They can report on something, it’s just that nobody would be able to confirm their story until something was actually confirmed on a farm.” A new animal health framework is one of the goals outlined in the B.C. government’s agrifood strategy, which sets the goal of expanding business in that sector by almost $4 billion in the next five years by increasing domestic and international markets.


Producers urged to plan for new cages Egg Farmers of Alberta | Change part of growing movement to larger housing BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Egg Farmers of Alberta is following Manitoba’s lead and recommending that producers adopt alternative egg laying cages if they retrofit or build a new barn. The organization’s board of directors made the recommendation during its recent annual meeting, said marketing and communication manager David Webb. Webb said switching from conventional cages is not mandatory but is recommended because of the growing trend away from conventional egg laying cages. “We strongly take that into consideration when they make that decision,” said Webb. The European Union made it illegal in January to sell eggs from hens kept in battery cages. Instead, hens must be housed in alternative aviary systems including free-run, free range, enriched or furnished cages. In the United States, United Egg Producers announced last July it would phase out conventional cages over the next 15 to 18 years. Brenda Bazylewski, director of communication with Manitoba Egg Farmers, said new or retrofitted egg facilities will be required to have alternative systems as of 2018.

Market Prospects “Better Farming Trains” of the 1920s were an early mechanism for conducting extension by the University of Saskatchewan, providing rural citizens with access to university personnel. The annual Farm and Home Week became a January tradition over the next several decades, where farmers and their spouses could hear presentations at the university on the latest in technology, marketing, prices, agronomics and world events. The extension focus of the Department of Agricultural Economics during the 1960s and 1970s used various forums including regional extension programs. Some larger centres conducted three-day programs where marketing and price outlooks were important components along with the latest in agronomics and land management. The mode of delivering marketing information evolved when, in 1984, Grain Market Prospects began as a one-day program produced at the University of Saskatchewan. Professors Ken Rosaasen and Gary Storey of the Department of Agricultural Economics and Professor Glen Hass of the Extension Division developed this program which was delivered via satellite television to farmers gathered in several centres across Saskatchewan. The program provided highquality market situation and outlook information for the major prairie grains, oilseeds and special crops prior to spring seeding. Expert speakers provided extensive presentations and viewers could telephone in from the various locations to ask questions. Over several years, the program expanded its delivery to additional centres across the province. The program was renamed Market Prospects in 1995 to be inclusive of both crops and livestock and moved to commercial broadcast television where it continues to be presented as an annual series. Guest speakers include a wide range of world class experts from Saskatchewan, across Canada and abroad including an annual appearance by the Chief Economist of the United States Department of Agriculture. Professors Ken Rosaasen and Robert Roy and Research Associate James Lokken co-ordinate guest selection and questions. Market Prospects can be viewed weekly on CTV Saskatchewan’s Farmgate program for 15 to 19 weeks each winter season and is available via satellite television across Canada. The content is also available globally on the website

With EU and U.S. producers moving to different cages, it’s likely Canada will follow suit. | FILE PHOTO “It’s the right thing to do,” said Bazylewski. In Manitoba, nine farmers have already have installed or are in the process of installing enriched cages. Another five have free run and one has free-range barns. Enriched cages cost 30 to 40 percent more than conventional egg laying cages. Egg prices have increased 75 percent in the EU since the new rules came into place. Webb said Alberta’s announce-

ment isn’t a ruling but a recommendation that egg farmers study egg cage options closely. With EU and U.S. producers moving to alterative cages, it’s only a matter of time before Canadian egg producers will be forced to follow suit. “Sooner rather than later it will be here,” said Webb. “This is a soft recommendation.” Canada’s first enriched cage housing system was built on an Alberta egg farm in 2010.

FARM EQUIPMENT MFG. Richardson Oilseed Ltd. opened its Yorkton, Sask., canola crushing plant two years ago, and recently announced a 25 percent expansion, raising total crush to about one million tonnes a year. | FILE PHOTO CANOLA | CRUSH CAPACITY

Crushers in expansion mode Canola oil in demand | Richardson Oilseed Ltd.’s plans to increase capacity by 1.7 million tonnes BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

North American canola growers will soon have access to another 1.7 million tonnes of crush capacity, which is the equivalent of adding two new Yorkton-sized plants to the landscape. Richardson Oilseed Ltd. is the latest industry player to announce a construction project. It is expanding its facility in Yorkton, Sask., to an annual capacity of a little more than one million tonnes from 840,000 tonnes. Construction will begin this fall with completion expected by late 2013. “We certainly are seeing strong demand both domestically and internationally for canola oil,” said company vice-president Pat Van Osch. The mounting demand for healthful oil has prompted a rash of projects across Western Canada and the U.S. northwest. Bunge is boosting the capacity of its facility in Altona, Man., to 875,000 tonnes from 385,000 tonnes. The project is expected to be ready to process canola in time for this har-

vest. The company is also more than doubling the 297,500 tonne capacity at its plant in Fort Saskatchewan, Alta., an expansion that is expected to be completed in 2014. Bunge did not respond to an interview request to provide an update on those two projects. Northstar Agri Industries’ new plant in Hallock, Minnesota, reached its 350,000 tonne operating capacity June 6. Legumex Walker Inc.’s similarsized plant under construction in Warden, Washington, is on target for completion by early 2013. Exporters, crushers compete The new projects are providing plenty of new capacity for an industry where crushers are already in a fierce tug-of-war with exporters over seed supply. Van Osch said Canadian growers have shown they’re up to the challenge of keeping pace with increased demand for their product. “This year we’ll be north of 20 (million acres) and whether we hit 21, time will tell,” he said. Simple math shows the crop may


be approaching its acreage limit. Western Canada has 60 to 66 million acres of land in production any given year. The recommended onceevery-three-years rotation would cap canola at a maximum of 20 to 22 million acres. However, growers are pushing rotations and breeders are improving yields, so there is still room for growth in production. Van Osch said there is a risk that U.S. biodiesel demand may be negatively affected by growing anti-biofuel sentiment in that country, but he doesn’t believe the federal mandates will be reduced because the government has expressed strong support for the industry. There is also a risk of waning demand for agriculture commodities

because of the slumping global economy, but he doubts demand for healthful oil will “fall off a cliff” anytime soon. Bunge will be the largest canola crusher in Western Canada when all the expansion and new construction is complete, followed by Cargill in second place and Richardson in third. Richardson will reclaim the title of the biggest canola crushing plant in Yorkton. That honour was snatched away from the company on Sept. 7, 2006, shortly after Richardson’s morning announcement that it was building a $170 million, 840,000 tonne facility in the east-central Saskatchewan city. That afternoon, Louis Dreyfus Canada issued a news release saying it was constructing a slightly larger 850,000 tonne crush plant in the same city. Van Osch kept one eye on the news wires when Richardson announced its expansion plans on the morning of June 20. “I was expecting (a Louis Dreyfus) announcement to come out Wednesday afternoon,” he joked.

Draw up balance sheet to measure financial performance PERSPECTIVES ON MANAGEMENT



enowned management consultant Peter Drucker once said, “if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” There are literally dozens of ratios and indicators — the measurements — that can be used to manage financial performance on a farm. Two key measurements look at the return farmers are getting from their financial investment in the business and the relationship between the assets and liabilities of the business. The analysis and related management requires that a preliminary step be taken that first defines what it is that is actually being measured. The challenges lie in the balance sheet. Balance sheets and unincorporated farms The Canada Revenue Agency does

not require unincorporated farmers to file an annual balance sheet, which is often referred to as a statement of net worth. Lenders will expect that an annual statement be provided, especially if a significant amount of debt exists. However, while they would prefer that the farmer uses the same date every year when compiling the balance sheet, that is not always possible. Time is usually the limiting factor: busy work schedules, trips and family situations can all affect when the statement is completed. But inconsistent dates can really reduce the effectiveness of balance sheet analysis so it is best to get organized and stick to one date. The date of the balance sheet determines which transactions are included and that affects assets and liabilities: inventory sales, assets b o u g ht o r s o l d a n d l i a b i l i t i e s decreased or increased. The impact on the balance sheet and related analysis can range from nominal to considerable, to the point where any year-over-year comparative analysis is of little value. Another common problem lies in the reporting: • There can be inconsistency in what is included in the statement. • Assets and/or liabilities can be missed from year to year. • There can be inconsistency in the

basis upon which the values are reported, such as using a different method to value assets or inventory. These inconsistencies can also render the information of little value for management purposes. For these reasons, it is best to use the same date each year when developing your balance sheet. Establish and apply a consistent approach to what is included in the statement and how the information is valued. Both will improve the measurement, which in turn will result in better information for management purposes. Balance sheets and incorporated farms The year-end date when the state-

ment is developed is not a problem with incorporated farms, but determining what is included in analyzing a balance sheet is a concern. Two issues are associated with asset ownership: • Land is often owned personally and therefore not included in the company’s balance sheet. • If the company owns land, it will be included in the balance sheet at its original cost. The ownership structure of some farms can also be problematic from a measurement perspective. For various reasons, some farms will comprise multiple companies, all working together but making it difficult to analyze the whole farm picture. To compensate for these issues, I encourage farmers to develop con-

solidated balance sheets, which aggregate multiple companies in one statement. I also suggest that land and quota, both corporate and personally owned, should be recorded at market value. Liabilities related to personally held assets must also be included. Applying a consistent approach to valuing market inventory is also important. Inventories can be large so small deviations from year to year in how the inventory is valued can have a significant impact on the measurement and related information for management purposes.

Program assures farmers receive pay for grain BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Farmers of North America has launched a program that ensures growers will be paid for the crops they sell. Farmers who join the MarketPower Assurance program and deliver grain to an insured grain buyer will receive a credit note that can be taken to any financial institution and presented as collateral against new borrowings. “By providing insurance on sales, Market Power Assurance ensures that growers will get paid and that (the) receivable is bankable,” said an FNA news release. FNA vice-president Terry Drabiuk described the program as an insurance on income receivables. “Farmers can now go and sell anywhere and as long as the buyer is insurable, we will insure the farmer for (as much as) 90 percent of the sale,” Drabiuk said. “So whether it be a feedlot in Lethbridge or a flour mill in the United Sates some place or Ma and Pa Ramesh in India, farmers can now make that trade, get it backed up by … (an underwriter) and then be guaranteed payment.” The cost to use the program will depend on the geographic location of the buyer and the terms and duration of protection being sought. Protection for grain sales involving buyers in continental North America o r Organization for Economic Co-operation and Developments countries is expected to be less expensive than protection on sales to buyers in Africa, Asia or the Middle East.

In all cases, insurance premiums are expected to amount to less than one percent of the sale’s total value, Drabiuk said. A $100,000 canola sale to a crusher in North Dakota would likely cost around half a percent, or $500, he added. Protection will initially be offered for a 90-day term, although longer terms are likely in the future. Other partners in the program include Atradius Credit Insurance, Export Development Canada and Panagea Global Risk Management. Over time, the program will create a global pool of credit-worthy buyers and will enhance direct marketing opportunities for Canadian growers. Primary producers who use the program will reduce their marketing risk and be able to sell products directly to foreign buyers and end users with a greater confidence. “This is a program that will work well for small to mid-sized farmers as well as the really big guys,” said Drabiuk. “Using it, farmers will become their own global traders, keeping more of the margins (that are) currently taken by middlemen.” The program will particularly benefit farmers who previously sold grain through the CWB but are now in a position to expand their own marketing programs. The proceeds are not taxable because the insurance note is similar to a capital loan or a cash advance. However, interest payments and insurance premiums associated with the program are tax deductible. For more information, visit mpa. or call 877-362-3276.
