Farm consolidations, ‘mega-farms’ a growing trend Statistics Canada’s 2011 Census of Agriculture shows that farms continue to grow, especially on the Prairies. In coming issues The Western Producer will explore the trend toward mega-farms, why it’s happening and what it means to agriculture and rural communities | By Sean Pratt, Saskatoon newsroom


ne large Saskatchewan farm has swallowed another that was in financial trouble, creating the kind of mega-farm that has become a lightning rod of criticism for some producers. Broadacre Agriculture Inc., a division of Pike Management Group, has acquired Wigmore Farms of Regina.

The sale includes 40,000 acres of leased and owned farmland in southern Saskatchewan and a pulse processing plant located in Grand Coulee, Sask. The Wigmore family is retaining the six crop input centres it owns in the province. Ernie Wigmore, former president of Wigmore farms and shareholder in


the company, said the farm was placed in jeopardy by a combination of poor growing conditions and crumbling demand for the main crop it produced and processed. In 2010, the farm had 25,000 acres of lentils ready to harvest. SEE MEGA-FARMS, PAGE 3

As agriculture ministers were expected to gather in Whitehorse this week to debate substantial cuts to farm support programs, federal minster Gerry Ritz says farmer input was key to the process. Many farm leaders beg to differ. Ministers are set to approve significant cuts to AgriStability coverage this week as part of the next five-year agriculture policy framework but farm organizations only began to learn details of proposed changes in recent months or weeks. But even as farm leaders complained that they largely were excluded from discussions about program reform proposals that ministers have been discussing for two years, Ritz issued a statement last week saying advice has been key to the discussions. “I wish to extend my thanks to the industry for inputting into the policy development over the past two years and throughout the last summer,” Ritz said. “Building on these and what industry told (federal and provincial) governments directly, the aim is to balance the risk between governments and producers while ensuring we are investing strategically to promote sector competitiveness.” On the table at Whitehorse are proposals to lower the trigger point for AgriStability payments that would potentially reduce program payments by close to $2 billion over five years. The meetings are slated to start Sept. 12 after Western Producer deadlines for this issue.






Ag funding future Some of the savings will be shifted to research and innovation programs but much of the money could be used on deficit reduction. Last week, farm leaders continued to complain that the government idea of consultation was not inclusive. Ontario Federation of Agriculture v i c e -p re s i d e n t D e b r a P re t t y Straathof, an eastern Ontario dairy farmer, said Sept. 4 that farm organizations were not included in the discussions nor asked to comment on the potential impact of program change on their members. “They talk about all their consultation but who were they talking to?” she asked. “It wasn’t us.” Grain Growers of Canada president Stephen Vandervalk wrote in a letter to prime minister Stephen Harper Sept. 6 that cuts in farm support funding could be short-sighted and lacking in producer advice. “While at least in the short term our margins are such that support will not be needed by many farmers, we are concerned that without sufficient producer input and direction, any downturn in prices or a widespread crop failure will take us back to the days of emergency farm aid,” he wrote to Harper and Conservative MPs. With word spreading among farm-

ers about potential farm program cuts, federal Conservative MPs and provincial governments scrambled in the past several weeks to hold consultations with farmers about what they want in a new five-year farm program deal. Typically, the meetings did not include any detail about what options are on the table in Whitehorse. However, a consultation Sept. 4 in Winnipeg by provincial agriculture minister Ron Kostyshyn offered some support for the view that ministers are on the right track to reduce emphasis on business risk management support programs. Cam Dahl, general manager of the Manitoba Cattle Producers’ Association, said in an interview that even with information about impending BRM cuts, most representatives of commodity groups at the meeting did not target that as a key concern. “I was a bit surprised that there wasn’t a bigger emphasis on preserving existing BRM levels,” he said in an interview. “The main overall point was support for more investment in research and less on preserving existing farm support program levels.” FOR A RELATED STORY, SEE PAGE 3

Plans to reduce farmer payments under key federal-provincial farm support programs should lead to more producer involvement in decisions, says a new report on farm program evolution. In Whitehorse this week, federal and provincial agriculture ministers are expected to approve significant cuts in payment eligibility under AgriStability, the mainstay farm support program. Farm leaders say they feel largely excluded from the latest government negotiations, which could reduce potential farm support spending by close to $2 billion over the next five years. In a Sept. 7 analysis of options for reforming business risk management programs, George Morris Centre executive director Bob Seguin argued that significant changes to future farm support programs should require farmer decision-making. It will be particularly critical if new program rules require cross compliance, in which farmers must cover themselves with protection from a program such as crop insurance

before they are eligible for support under a program like AgriRecovery. “A s p ro g ra m p a ra m e t e r s a re altered, there will be a need to more thoroughly include representatives of the producer groups to ensure fairness, equity, effectiveness of administration and enforcement,” he wrote. “However, with these options involving more significant changes such as new cross-compliance requirements or using very different risk management tools, it can be anticipated changing governance structures are required to include producer representatives into decision-making processes.” Seguin said farmer involvement would increase program administration cost and complexity but should not be avoided. He also argued that calls for restrictions on the level of payments available to individual operations contradict market realities, which see larger farms producing a greater portion of Canadian food. It has been a key demand of the National Farmers Union, which wants farm payments tilted to support smaller family farms “Larger commercial farm operations are responsible for greater share of overall farm production,” said Seguin.

Mega-farms a growing trend The first 4,000 acres yielded 40 bushels per acre and graded No. 2. And then it rained for five straight weeks. The remainder of the crop yielded between 12 and 15 bu. per acre and was graded No. 3 or feed. “We had forward sold a bunch of that crop, so we had to fix that and that took our working capital,” said Wigmore. The following year the company harvested good crops at its Regina and Mossbank farms but its operation near Torquay was flooded out. In addition to two years of production problems, the demand for lentils dried up in 2011 from the lack of available credit in importing nations due to the European banking crisis and currency volatility in many of those markets. “That is the profound dilemma of marketing grains — how suddenly a product that had the interest of the world nobody wants,” said Wigmore. Circumstances forced the 74-yearold retired doctor, whose family had been farming in Saskatchewan for more than 100 years, to consider leaving the business. “I had some cash flow problems. I either had to change my investment holdings or take on another shareholder. In my search of that I offered the shares and they were gone. But I had the resources to continue if I wanted to,” he said. Gary Pike, chief executive officer of Broadacre, said the offer was too good to pass up. “We saw this as an opportunity with a plant and some very good land,” he said. It also spreads out Broadacre’s land holdings so the company won’t be held hostage to the vagaries of weather, insects and disease. “We had land in the north, so we needed some land in the south. It diversified our situation greatly,” said Pike. Broadacre now farms 75,000 acres scattered throughout the province, about one-third of which is owned. Wigmore and Broadacre employed similar models of farming, acquiring or leasing large tracts of land from growers and taking advantage of the resulting economies of scale and vertical integration to drive down costs and spread out risk. They say the model makes economic sense but other farmers don’t like the bigger-is-better trend

The pulse processing facility at Grand Coulee, Sask., was formerly operated by Wigmore Farms, which was sold to a larger farm last year. | unfolding in Western Canada. According to the 2011 Census of Agriculture, the average Canadian farm size grew by seven percent since the last census in 2006. The trend is more pronounced in the prairie region where the average farm grew by 13 percent in Manitoba, 15 percent in Saskatchewan and 11 percent in Alberta. “If all of prairie western agriculture goes that route it’s just another scale up and the emptying out of the countryside,” said National Farmers Union president Terry Boehm. He doesn’t have any bone to pick with the Broadacre/Wigmore deal but he wonders if it’s appropriate when massive farms receive millions of dollars in business risk management funds. “In terms of public policy, what do we want? Do we want farmers on the land or do we just want to scale up?” said Boehm. He believes there are big risks asso-

ciated with financing such mega operations. It reminds him of the large Bonanza farms of the 1920s that failed and were split into smaller farms when commodity prices crashed. Another grower from Alberta, who didn’t want his name published for fear of reprisal, wonders how a young farmer, or even an established one, can buy land and compete with a firm financed with “an unlimited supply” of investor money. “There’s no way nobody can compete with that. It’s government’s responsibility to do something about it but I don’t think they ever will because the trend is for bigger and bigger all the time,” he said. Pike insists that operations like Broadacre are not driving up land costs and emptying rural communities. “Broadacre is a farm in the true sense in that we own the equipment, purchase all the inputs and actually

physically operate it,” he said. The board of directors is made up of farmers and Broadacre’s three farm managers all have equity in the company. “This is not a land play. We’re not just a land speculation operation. The actual profit generation is done through farming,” he said. The company deals with local input providers, buying so much fuel in some locations that the retailer has had to revamp its facilities. Broadacre has done custom feeding and harvesting in the regions where it operates. “ We ’ r e l i k e a n y o t h e r g o o d neighbour,” said Pike. The farm will continue expanding at a measured pace in Saskatchewan, the neighbouring provinces and even south of the border. “We’re growing slowly but surely. We don’t plan on taking on the world by any means,” said Pike. “There are lots of farms that are big-


ger than us. We’re watching those models carefully and want to grow responsibly.” Boehm said the latest takeover highlights the financial risks of farming on such a grand scale. “Wigmore farms failed and now another farm comes along and doubles on that scale,” he said. Wigmore said he could have kept the farm afloat if he had sold off some assets or sought additional capital from a financial institution but he wasn’t prepared to “climb that ladder.” It has been 38 years since he bought his first 1,000 acre parcel of land near Regina. He has been involved in farming since he was a boy milking dairy cows before heading off to school. So retiring from the business feels a little strange. “For the first time in my life I wake up and there is nothing I have to do,” said Wigmore.


Sask. expected to reluctantly sign BRM agreement Not an ideal deal | Provincial ag minister unlikely to risk losing federal funding for research, sources say BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Saskatchewan will likely sign onto a new federal-provincial business risk management program this week with which it doesn’t necessarily agree. It has to if it wants to receive funding for non-BRM provincial-specific programming that has yet to be negotiated. Agriculture ministers are meeting in Whitehorse Sept. 12-14 to sign the next five-year farm support agree-

ment that likely will see cuts to AgriStability. The changes could save governments close to $2 billion. However, sources in Saskatchewan say most other provinces and territories have recently agreed to a lesser cut to AgriStability in exchange for reducing contribution levels to AgriInvest. Sources said Saskatchewan doesn’t understand why other provinces would agree to cut the popular matching deposit program that producers like and understand. However, if it stands alone it won’t matter.

Changes to federal-provincial-territorial agreements require agreement by seven jurisdictions and at least 50 percent of production value. “It sounds like everybody’s on side but us,” said one source. Discussions about lowering the trigger for AgriStability payments from 85 percent of a farmer’s reference margin to 70 percent have been going on for months. It was one of three options on the table during a July ministerial conference call and the most palatable. The other two options were to eliminate

AgriStability and reduce the trigger to 50 percent. However, British Columbia later proposed that the lower trigger should come with a larger payout. Ottawa had suggested a 60 percent payout at all loss levels compared to the current system of various government support levels for different percentages of loss. B.C., with the support of other provinces, wants 70 percent government support at all levels. In exchange, it proposed reducing the annual amount of allowable net

sales that farmers can deposit in AgriInvest accounts and be matched by government to one percent from 1.5 percent. Saskatchewan agriculture minister Lyle Stewart held a hastily arranged conference call with stakeholders after this proposal emerged to update them on the situation. While he will likely sign a deal that isn’t exactly what the province was looking for, sources said he won’t risk losing the increased funding that will be available for other areas, such as research.




Drought tolerance ‘not a silver bullet’




Drought tolerant corn would not have saved the U.S. crop this year, says the National Corn Growers Association. “The drought was so intense in certain areas that even the hardiest of hardy crops would not have been able to make a significant dent,” said Nathan Fields, the association’s director of biotechnology. A number of seed companies either commercialized or field-tested drought tolerant corn hybrids this year, both genetically modified varieties and those made through conventional breeding. Growers are reporting that the varieties performed better than traditional corn varieties in areas where there was at least a little rain. However, Fields said the drought tolerant traits are designed to help corn crops survive an extra week or two between rain, but not seven or eight weeks without moisture. “It is not a silver bullet. Every plant needs at least some water to grow and we just didn’t get that in wide areas here in the corn belt,” he said. Drought ravaged the U.S. corn crop this year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture dropped its yield estimate by 26 percent to 123 bushels per acre in August from 166 bu. in May. Canadian grain farmers are benefitting from that production shortfall, which has driven corn and many other grain and oilseed prices to record levels. Seed companies say their drought tolerant technology can boost yields by up to 15 percent over traditional varieties under dry conditions, which would have a significant impact on corn prices. If farmers added 15 percent to anticipated yields, it would be enough corn to fill 497,777 rail cars, according to the Council for Biotechnology Information. However, Fields doesn’t expect the field trial results will show a 15 percent improvement over traditional varieties in 2012. “I have tempered my expectations just because of the intensity of the weather event this year,” he said. Monsanto piloted its new DroughtGard hybrids with 250 growers this spring on 10,000 acres throughout the western Great Plains from South Dakota to Texas. Mark Lawson, corn team yield and stress platform lead for Monsanto, said the company lost some of the trials in areas where there was extreme drought. “But this is a very unusual year. You won’t see these kinds of conditions in most years,” he said. “When you get into these kinds of conditions, it’s difficult for any product or technology to keep up with the kind of drought that we had here.” Growers who did receive a little rain said the DroughtGard hybrids showed good plant health, ear development and pollination resulting in more kernels per ear. Lawson said the technology should help stabilize U.S. corn production when the crop is under stress in a year with more typical drought conditions. Fields agreed that drought tolerant crops could be immensely helpful for 20 to 30 million acres of dryland corn typically planted in the U.S. corn belt. “Our growers are looking forward to this product being fully commercially launched and being available,” he said. Fields hopes drought tolerant corn will deliver the same kind of benefits that new hybrids did a couple of years ago when much of Iowa’s corn crop was flooded in the spring. The crops were able to lay down strong roots quickly, which prevented the corn from uprooting or lodging when the water came. “The corn responded quite well because of the base genetics, and we were able to save a very good crop in that area,” he said. Monsanto isn’t the only seed company offering drought tolerant corn. DuPont Pioneer’s Optimum Aquamax corn is the furthest advanced. The company estimates it was planted on three million acres of the western corn belt this spring. Syngenta field tested its Agrisure Artesian corn in 800 locations and will have ample supplies next year. Many growers in Manitoba would have benefited from drought and heat tolerant canola this year. Monsanto Canada spokesperson Trish Jordan said drought tolerant canola is not in the company’s research and development pipeline. The company is focused on the anticipated 2014 commercial launch of TruFlex, its second generation of Roundup Ready canola.

Drought dire for Man. producers Dugouts have dried up, forcing some livestock producers to drill wells or haul water BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

A dugout on a section and a half of pasture has provided water to thousands of cattle on John Tkachuk’s farm near Piney, Man., for more than 40 years. However, the dugout dried up this summer and turned “putrid,” Tkachuk said, after a year of minimal precipitation and scorching hot temperatures in July. “The water has absolutely turned green,” said Tkachuk, who runs a cow-calf operation with a herd of 150 to 200 animals. “So we were forced to drill a well, which cost about $7,500, and set up a watering system for (the cattle).” Tkachuk can’t recall a summer like 2012 in his decades of raising cattle in southeastern Manitoba. “I’ve seen it dry and I’ve seen dugouts dry up here before, but I’ve never seen pasture this tough all summer, not being able to recuperate,” he said. “The heat was the biggest thing. I’ve never seen it this hot.” Livestock producers in southeastern Manitoba have scrambled for the last month to find sufficient supplies of water, hay and pasture for their cattle. In August, Manitoba Agriculture staff surveyed producers in the region to assess the impact of the drought. Jenelle Hamblin, a forage specialist with the department in Beausejour, said hay production is down 50 percent across the region and the average rancher has lost 30 to 45 days of pasture. “Some of these guys, in the more severe areas, were up to 60 days of lost pasture and they were already feeding (their livestock),” said Hamblin. The survey was done a couple of weeks ago, she added. “So, more fellows are probably in that

situation today.” The dry conditions are affecting a broad area of rangeland, which stretches east from Highway 59 and south of Steinbach to the U.S. border. The drought, which began a year ago, has been particularly severe for producers in the rural municipalities of Piney and Stuartburn. “This whole situation probably started last August. We had no rain at all in August and went into the fall very dry,” said Tkachuk. Little snow fell last winter and there was minimal rainfall this summer. “I can honestly say that we got an inch and a half of rain a week ago and that’s the only substantial (storm) since a year ago.” Tkachuk’s reliable dugout, which is fed by groundwater and runoff, didn’t entirely dry up this summer, but birds desperate for water fouled what water remained. “We’ve had some dry falls, and these geese have no water. So they come to this one dugout. So I’m seeing 200 geese with about 150 sandhill cranes (in the dugout) … and they’ve completely destroyed the waterhole.” Unable to pasture Producers have drilled wells, deepened dugouts and hauled water to satisfy their livestock’s thirst this summer. Besides drilling a well, Tkachuk was also forced to feed cattle in July. His pastures dried up and would not grow back because of a lack of moisture in the spring and the severe summer heat. “There really was no lull in the feeding. We had to feed our cattle right up to June 1 because we had no pasture. It was so slow in coming. Then we were right back into feeding again (in July) because there was no pasture at all,” he said.

“We have both spring and fall calving …. The fall calvers we had to keep heavier and we started feeding them around the first part of July.” Fortunately, Tkachuk realized in early July that his alfalfa hayland was struggling and would probably yield one-third the normal number of bales. He talked to ranchers in the United States and Canada and was able to buy 500 bales from producers near Sprague, Man. Producers who weren’t able to buy forage have been forced to bale slough grass and other low quality hay. But Tkachuk said it’s risky to feed low quality hay in January and February. “I’ve been doing this all my life and I can tell you I wouldn’t want to go into winter feeding cattle that kind of feed.” Don Winnicky, who raises cattle near Piney, said things aren’t quite as desperate on his farm. He has artesian wells and enough pasture to last another month. Yet, he wonders how producers are going to feed their animals this winter, considering there’s a shortage of hay across Manitoba. “I guess lots of guys have gone to the Red River Valley to bale straw,” he said. It will be challenging to supplement that forage with grain, he added. “The price of grain has gone through the roof…. For a bushel of oats they want $3.50. You can’t feed cattle at that kind of price.” If producers plan to feed straw or other low quality hay to their livestock this winter, Hamblin encouraged ranchers to test their hay to assess the quality of the feed. Tkachuk said the government should develop a suitable hay insurance program because existing premiums are too costly. In the short-term, he added, it would be helpful if the province offered a freight assistance program for ranchers in southeastern Manitoba.


Manitoba happy with yield, quality of wheat crop




Solid performance | Sask., Alta. harvests haven’t progressed enough for adequate reading BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Spring wheat is shaping up to be the king of crops in Manitoba this year. However, a complete picture of spring wheat yields and quality has yet to emerge in Saskatchewan and Alberta, where significant acres are still in the field. In Manitoba, where the spring wheat harvest is all but complete, reports suggest that this year’s crop came off in good shape, with average to above-average yields in most areas, good quality and higher-thanaverage protein levels. Pam de Rocquigny, a cereal grains specialist with Manitoba Agriculture, said wheat was a solid performer in most parts of the province. “I think most producers were happy with what’s been taken off,” she said. “There are always exceptions … but generally speaking, I think most yields were average to slightly aboveaverage.” Manitoba’s 10-year average for red spring wheat production is 43 bushels per acre. Wheat quality was also good, de Rocquigny said. Producers across the province reported good test weights, low fusarium levels and high protein values. Chuck Fossay, a grain grower from Starbuck, Man., southwest of Winnipeg, said wheat yields on his farm were a pleasant surprise. “The canola was quite disappointing, but the wheat was surprisingly good,” he said. “For hard red winter, we had excellent yields, in the 90s, and good quality. For red spring, we also had good yields, in the high 50s or low 60s, and protein anywhere from 13 percent to 14.5 percent. All of it was a No. 1 … so in general we’re very happy with the wheat crop.” Fusarium, usually a major concern for Manitoba cereal growers, was a minor problem this year, he added. In Saskatchewan, where the spring wheat harvest is still underway, early indications from the provincial crop reporting program suggest yields of 31 to 32 bu. per acre in southern and central regions up to 35 to 40 bu. in the northern grain belt. Grant McLean, cropping management specialist with Saskatchewan Agriculture, said provincial yields could fall slightly below the longterm average. Spring wheat crops in Saskatchewan have averaged 35.4 bu. per acre over the past seven years. Last year’s average was 41.4 bu. This year, the province’s spring wheat harvest was 24 percent complete as of Sept. 3 with average yields of 33 bu. per acre. “I think in most cases … quality is a


bit lower and yields are a bit lower because of the heat stress and in some cases because of leaf diseases,” McLean said. “I think protein is also quite variable, depending on the stage of the crop.” Fusarium was more prevalent than normal in many parts of the province, particularly in central and northern regions that saw frequent rain and high humidity through much of the growing season. In Alberta, provincial crop statistician Lukas Matejovsky said spring wheat yields recorded so far are slightly lower than Statistics Canada projections but slightly higher than the province’s 10-year average. “I would summarize that the yields are above average with good quality so far,” Matejovsky said. As of Sept. 4, 17.6 percent of Alberta’s spring wheat acres had been harvested with an average yield of 45 to 46 bu. per acre. Alberta’s 10-year average for dryland spring wheat between 2002 and 2011 was 42.8 bushels per acre. Earlier this year, Statistics Canada estimated average spring wheat yields in the province at 49.5 bu. per acre. Kevin Bender, president of the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association, said wheat yields in his area near Bentley, Alta., will be good but not outstanding. “I think (yields) will be average to maybe a little bit above average,” he said. “Initially, we were thinking it would be well above average, but I don’t think that’ll be the case anymore. It looks good but it doesn’t look fantastic.” As of Sept. 6, only the odd field of spring wheat had been harvested in the Bentley area, 50 kilometres northwest of Red Deer. In its most recent production estimate, Statistics Canada projected total prairie wheat production of 24.8 million tonnes this year, up nearly 10 percent form the 22.6 million tonnes produced in 2011. The Statistics Canada report projected overall yield at 41.5 bu. per acre, down slightly from last year’s 42.1 bu. The modest decline in yield should be offset by a significant increase in total prairie wheat acreage, which was projected to rise 11.4 percent from 2011 to 22 million acres.

Quality issues cause alarm in Sask. BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Crop quality is becoming an issue as harvest begins in Saskatchewan. “We are seeing fusarium,” said Daryl Beswitherick, program manager for quality assurance at the Canadian Grain Commission. “Enough to downgrade to a No. 2, some to a No. 3 but not extremely high amounts as we’ve seen in the past when you get feed grades and sample grades.” Midge is also showing up in wheat crops. Damage is widespread in Saskatchewan and is bumping the crop down one or two grades. Beswitherick said quality is a mixed bag this year and is not as big an issue as the disappointing yields. “There is some stuff that is going down (in grade), but it’s not terrible. It’s not like we’ve had a frost and everything is feed wheat,” he said. “I definitely don’t want to sound any alarm bells.” Beswitherick stressed it is still early in the harvest to be drawing firm conclusions about crop quality. The

commission has seen 1,500 crop samples from the three prairie provinces out of a typical annual volume of 8,000 to 10,000 samples. He hasn’t received many samples from Alberta, where harvest is in the early stages, but what he has seen is in fantastic condition. “Some of the early stuff looks really, really good, some of the best wheat we’ve seen.” However, quality issues are definitely emerging in Saskatchewan. The province’s crop report for Aug. 28 to Sept. 3 makes repeated references to concerns throughout the province. Grant McLean, cropping management specialist with Saskatchewan Agriculture, is particularly worried about the northern farm belt because of wet conditions. “Late-season rain could certainly drop the grades, particularly on the wheats,” he said. As well, there are numerous reports of high green seed counts in the province’s canola crop. McL ean thinks that could be because growers swathed the crop too early during the heat of summer

due to concerns about damage from sclerotinia and aster yellows disease. Beswitherick said most of the canola is grading No. 1, but the oil content is two percentage points below the average of 44.5 percent. If that trend continues it could be a big blow for crushers, who are already facing the prospect of a smaller than expected canola crop. Beswitherick said it’s possible canola oil content will improve as the later-seeded crop is harvested. The hot and dry weather in Manitoba and Saskatchewan caused a lot of tiny canola seeds and led to poor test weights in many of the early oat and barley samples. There were numerous references in Saskatchewan’s crop report to light barley crops. “Instead of nice plump barley it’s thin. That tells me that the heat hit it or else it didn’t fill as well because of leaf diseases,” said McLean. Beswitherick said peas are being downgraded because of adhered dirt but nothing out of the ordinary. Lentils are of average quality and thrived under the hot, dry conditions.

Oats benefit from costly corn Growth in equine sales | Campaign to entice horse owners away from corn-based feed is well-timed BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

OAT DEMAND SURGES After a big drop in oat demand to less than 500,000 tonnes per year and an inability to regain demand, the horse industry has suddenly begun consuming more oats this year. Keeping this demand after the U.S. Midwest drought ends is crucial for oats growers.

ket but also work down an already low stockpile of oats. Oat ending stocks for 2012-13 are already near record lows, and the relatively poor price for oats is unlikely to encourage growers to plant much next spring. That could set up a winter of good prices and a good following year. “At some point the oat market is going to have to start responding (to the very low stockpiles of oats),” Strychar said. However, the relatively low price of oats right now is helping re-engage U.S. horse feed buyers and manufacturers with the crop, so it’s perfectly timed for the oat industry’s campaign to regain the market, he said. Price is forcing buyers to look at the crop again, so the industry can now find receptive eyes and ears for its sales pitch after years of being ignored.

That’s good news in terms of winning back horse demand, but it’s not for a good reason. Oats is regaining buyers not because they suddenly believe oats are much better than corn as horse feed but because corn has become much more expensive. Oat futures prices have increased 3 5 p e rc e nt s i n c e t h e Mi d w e s t drought began. That’s a lot, but not compared to the 55 percent increase in the price of corn. With corn now having a roughly equal per tonne price to oats in crucial horse feed markets such as Kentucky, oats have begun to reassert their superior nutritional value and sales have dramatically increased. Strychar said this is good for the overall price outlook for prairie oat growers because horse feed sales not only help rebuild a mostly lost mar-

Oats have made a stunning recovery in the U.S. horse feed market, with demand increasing by 72 percent from last year. It’s dramatic proof that the crucial market can be won back, even if this year’s victory is not the result of committed oat popularity with the equine set. “It’s about corn being expensive,” said Ag Commodity Research oat analyst Randy Strychar. Strychar said he expects oats to win more sales to U.S. horse feed manufacturers if cash market prices in horse areas remain close to even money per tonne for oats versus corn. “We’re going to see continued incremental sales to the equine market.” The dramatic decline of oats used in horse feed rations has worried Canadian oat growers because it is an important secondary market for the crop after the all-important milling market that uses oats for Cheerios, Quaker Oats and granola bars. Horse owners will pay top dollar for quality feed grains so it is not a heavily discounted market, unlike feed wheat markets. The oat industry has mounted an aggressive campaign to win back the U.S. horse feed market, which once consumed one million tonnes of imported oats per year. Most of that was Canadian oats. However, after reaching its peak of nearly 1.1 million tonnes in 1993-94, consumption fell to 500,000 tonnes by the mid-2000s and hit a low of 282,000 tonnes in 2010-11. Horse feed manufacturers began using corn-based replacements for oats and found cheap ways to mimic the nutritional value of oats. With plenty of cheap corn available, replacing oats was easy. However, consumption for 2011-12 appears to have reached 500,000 tonnes and should increase in 201213 if present market conditions continue, Strychar said.

CWB releases first canola initial payments

*2011-12 figures are year-to-date Source: Ag Commodity Research | WP GRAPHIC

For the first time ever, the CWB has announced initial payments for canola contracted to the CWB Harvest Pool. The initial payment for No. 1 Canada canola is $475 per tonne and the initial payment for No. 2 Canada canola is $462 per tonne. The initials are equivalent to roughly 74 percent of the CWB’s Pool Return Outlooks. PROs for canola were listed last week at $640 per tonne for No. 1 and $627 per tonne for No. 2. Initial payments are effective Sept.1 for canola deliveries into the 2012-13 canola pool. The deadline to commit canola to the CWB harvest pool is Oct. 31, 2012. The marketing period for the pool runs from harvest until June 30, 2013. In its marketing commentary, the CWB said canola stocks are relatively tight and will remain strained throughout 2012-13, partly because of strong domestic and offshore demand. Ending stocks for 2011-12 are estimated at 600,000 tonnes. Yields in many parts of Western Canada are also falling well short of expectations, according to prod u c e r s a n d p rov i n c i a l c ro p reports. There is little chance that ending stocks will increase, despite a Canadian crop estimated at 14.7 million tonnes, the CWB said. Crop production problems in the United States have boosted world soybean prices, and canola values are following suit. South America’s soybean production is estimated at record levels, but world oilseed prices could climb higher if growers there experience adverse weather, the CWB added.

Premiums dip with supply of high protein wheat Too much of a good thing | Hot, dry weather has boosted protein levels in many areas so modest premiums are expected BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Prairie grain growers are still waiting for clear signals on whether grain companies will offer premiums this year for high protein wheat. Although the western Canadian wheat harvest is still in its early stages, initial reports suggest that North America will produce abundant supplies of high protein milling wheat this year. The Canadian Grain Commission reported last week that protein levels in Western Canada’s red spring wheat crop were averaging 14.1 percent as of Sept. 10. That preliminary figure was based on 700 samples submitted through the commission’s annual harvest sample program, most of them from Manitoba. With abundant supplies of high protein material expected, farmers and industry analysts are anticipating modest protein premiums at best. “As far as I know, there aren’t a lot of premiums for protein,” said Manitoba grain grower Chuck Fossay. “There’s just so much (high protein wheat) … out there in Western Canada and I think the U.S. wheat crop had quite good protein as well, so there’s not a lot of premiums being offered.” Hot, dry weather across much of North America this summer boosted protein levels in spring wheat crops and reduced the demand for high protein grain among North American buyers, said Errol Anderson, a grain market analyst with ProMarket Wire. “The heat has definitely cranked up (protein levels), and it’s given the market ample supplies,” he said. “The last I (heard) … is that there really isn’t anything being offered above 13.5 percent.” In Western Canada, uncertainty surrounding protein premiums is compounded this year by the fact that the CWB is no longer the sole

marketer of spring wheat. As it has in the past, CWB is offering premiums based on a graduated protein scale that caps out at 14.5 percent. “We will be paying on tenths (of a percent) so that’s the same as we’ve done for a long time,” said Gord Flaten, CWB’s vice-president of grain procurement. “There is a bit of variety out there, I

think, in terms of how different companies are handling it.… I think there are a lot that are paying on halves and there are many where the protein is capping out at a lower level.” The CWB’s protein premiums are significantly lower this year than they were in 2011-12. Effective Aug. 1, the spread in initial prices between No. 1 CWRS 12.5 percent protein and No. 1 CWRS 14.5 per-

cent protein was 39 cents per bushel, or roughly two cents per tenth. A year earlier, the price differential was 78 cents, or nearly four cents per tenth. Flaten said lower CWB premiums are a function of North American market conditions in 2012-13. “Its just a supply and demand thing,” he said. “You’ll see that in the market this year, and the pool payments are going to reflect that market.” Calls to other Canadian grain companies were not returned before the Sept. 10 publication deadline. In southern Alberta, grain grower Stephen Vandervalk said producers are still waiting to see how protein premiums shake out. “Right now, it’s up in the air,” he said. “From what I understand, some markets are going to discount you for

anything under 13.5 and (those discounts could be bigger) than premiums for anything over 13.5.” Vandervalk said growers should compare markets, inquire about local blending opportunities and ask individual grain buyers specifically what range of protein they are looking for. Rolf Penner, a Manitoba grain grower and director with the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association, said market conditions could change. “It sounds like there’s an ample supply of high protein wheat out there … but I’m also wondering too if it’s a little bit early yet,” he said. “In Saskatchewan, they’re just getting going and maybe once we get a little bit better idea of what we’ve got across Western Canada, that premium might increase.” Although Manitoba’s protein numbers are expected to be higher than average, the province’s share of Western Canada’s total spring wheat acreage is relatively small. According to Statistics Canada, Manitoba growers planted 2.4 million acres of spring wheat this year, or 15 percent of total prairie acreage. By comparison, spring wheat plantings in Saskatchewan and Alberta were estimated at 8.5 million acres and 5.8 million acres, respectively. Protein premiums in North Dakota have been highly variable over the past 18 months, said one U.S. grain buyer who requested that his name not be published. “In the last year and a half, we’ve seen it as high as 45 cents for each quarter of a percent up and down (from 14), and we’ve swung all the way from that to where we are today, which is zero,” he said. “Right now, there’s so much high protein around that buyers just don’t care. Wheat is wheat and it doesn’t matter if it’s 17 percent (or) 12 percent.… That’ll change as harvest progresses and things settle down…. Right now, they just don’t need it, so they’re just not paying for it.”


EU greenhouse gas emission reduction claim ‘questionable’ BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The rapeseed biodiesel that is used extensively in the European Union doesn’t come close to meeting the region’s sustainability criteria, according to a new study. The study by GlobEcon, a German research and consulting group, has determined that the most popular biofuel in the EU does not meet the 35 percent greenhouse gas reduction threshold set out in the EU’s Renewable Energy Directive (RED). “The sustainability of rapeseed biodiesel in the interpretation of (the) RED is at best very questionable and in most scenarios simply unjustifiable,” said the study, which was published as a Jena Economic Research Paper. “We are not able to reproduce the

GHG emissions saving values published in (the) RED for rapeseed biodiesel.” Cory McArthur, vice-president of ma rke t d e v e l o p m e nt w i t h t h e Canola Council of Canada, said the EU’s fats and oils processing association has criticized the study. It says the paper wasn’t peer reviewed, used methodology that wasn’t aligned with the EU’s accepted approach to life cycle analysis and relied on selective data. The study comes at a time when exporters of canola seed, canola oil and biodiesel are attempting to become certified to the EU’s sustainability criteria so their products can be used in the biodiesel industry. Canada has chosen an EU approved certification scheme, and some crushers and exporters have been

certified to the sustainability requirements. Canola biodiesel has been assigned the default 38 percent greenhouse gas reduction value used for European rapeseed biodiesel. “We should have a value substantially higher than that,” said McArthur, because Canadian canola is grown under dryland conditions using no-till technology. The council is conducting a life cycle analysis using the EU’s RED methodology in an effort to boost that number. It should be complete by the end of 2012. In the meantime, the debate over the sustainability of biodiesel rages on in the EU. Rapeseed oil accounts for twothirds of the feedstock that will be used to make 10.9 million litres of biodiesel in the EU in 2012. The 6.4 million tonnes of rapeseed


38 percent GHG REDUCTION VALUE oil used by the EU’s 257 biorefineries will be made from 16 million tonnes of rapeseed, which means the biodiesel sector is a massive market for the bloc’s rapeseed producers, who harvested 19 million tonnes in 2011-12. However, GlobEcon said it’s a market that shouldn’t exist. The company ran a life cycle assessment of rapeseed biodiesel using the same methodology and background data contained in the RED.

The alternative fuel failed to meet the EU’s 35 percent greenhouse gas emissions reduction threshold in eight of the 12 scenarios considered in the study. “It is extremely likely that European rapeseed biodiesel does not, in fact, meet the current EU definition of sustainability,” said the study. It said the “typical” greenhouse gas emissions savings value of 45 percent used by the EU in the RED is laughable. It could not be achieved in any of the 12 scenarios. “The simple and unavoidable conclusion is that these values stated by the EU are more than questionable,” said the study. GlobEcon said it appears that the EU prefers to use “politically achieved” GHG emissions reduction values rather than scientifically proven ones.





Free market, but little grain heading to U.S. U.S. loses luster | Feedlots, grain companies and marketers are offering good prices so there is no incentive to haul south BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Visitors to the United States who are worried about big lineups of grain trucks clogging the border crossings can relax. There are no reports of significant grain truck movement of prairie farmers’ wheat, barley or durum into the U.S. now, and most observers and analysts don’t expect to see much. “It’s a bit of an eye-opener to some of how the free market actually works,” said Doug Chambers of Quality Grain. “The feed market of Western Canada is aggressively holding onto grain.” John Ulrickson of the Money Farm, a grain marketing service in Fargo, North Dakota, put it simply. “Nothing’s really moving across.” For decades, many farmers have wondered if the tales they have heard of fat U.S. grain elevator prices would cause a flood of trucks into the U.S. if the CWB monopoly was ever broken. The monopoly’s gone and those better prices don’t appear to exist. Analysts say that’s partly because feedlots, grain companies and other marketers are offering good prairiebased prices, which gives farmers no incentive to haul to the U.S. Another reason is that the high U.S. prices that played such a big role in CWB monopoly debate were mostly a myth. Some of those prices were for small amounts of tightly specified grains, with big discounts for anything not hitting the spec. Others were just for tiny amounts of grain to fill out the last couple of cars on a train. Chambers said he has seen a number of the latter situation since the border opened up, and as he expected they’re there and gone in the blink of an eye.

Opportunities for higher prices in the United States once the CWB monopoly was eliminated have not panned out. | FILE PHOTO

It’s a bit of an eye-opener to some of how the free market actually works. The feed market of Western Canada is aggressively holding onto grain. DOUG CHAMBERS QUALITY GRAIN

“It’s really spot situations, and if you don’t grab them they’re gone,” said Chambers. For instance, a farmer he knows in Leader, Sask., had a U.S. offer for feed wheat for $7.25 per bushel picked up

at his farm. He waited two days to accept the offer, by which time the basis had fallen by 60 cents and the price was no longer better than local prices. Generally, U.S. prices don’t look good once transport costs are added to the elevator price. Keystone Agricultural Producers president Doug Chorney said Canadian grain companies appear to be offering market-reflective prices, so even slightly better prices at some locations at some times in the U.S. don’t add up to more profit. “They’re not enough to drive 150, 200 miles to get,” said Chorney, who has called a number of U.S. elevators

to see what they’re bidding. Chambers said Alberta grain companies and feedlots want the grain as much as U.S. buyers, so U.S. buyers have generally found they can’t make the numbers work to close deals. One U.S. buyer asked Chambers about a potential purchase, which Chambers thought he could arrange. Then a couple of days later the buyer said he could afford to buy the grain for only $17 per tonne less than he previously suggested. “I said, ‘well, no, you can’t make it work at $17 less because it will stay in the Alberta feed market,’ ” said Chambers. The lack of big deals in the U.S. is no

surprise to most analysts, economists and brokers. Overall prices weren’t likely far out of alignment even when the wheat board monopoly was in place, although there could be short- and medium-term aberrations because of the long-lived nature of CWB pool pricing. North Dakota Wheat Commission marketing director Jim Peterson said he has seen little sign of much extra Canadian grain moving south, and doubts there will be. “There’s a pretty good incentive for your elevators there on your side to keep the grain there,” said Peterson. “We’re not hearing that there’s much moving.”


Corn, soybean meal prices open door to canola Cheaper feed | The canola association seeks non-traditional buyers looking for a substitute to costly soybean meal BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

When’s the best time for canola growers and marketers to promote the heck out of canola meal? How about right now? Some canola market observers think the U.S. Midwest drought is the perfect opportunity to make feed buyers and formulators take canola meal seriously, after ignoring it for years. “I think this is a great opportunity for canola meal to be used by nontraditional users,” said Rick White, general manager of the Canadian Canola Growers Association. “Given the shor tage of other feedgrains, canola meal might be able to get some attention.” The main force driving U.S. soybean futures prices higher than $17 per bushel has been the value of soy-

bean meal. The devastation of U.S. corn and soybean crops by severe drought means livestock feeders in the U.S. are short of corn and soybean meal, which are the basis for hog feeds and for cattle rations. Canola has struggled to keep up with the soaring price of soybeans, disappointing thousands of prairie farmers who feel left behind. Part of the story is the big Canadian canola crop, which escaped the drought and is now plentiful. Canola oil isn’t scarce, even if demand is strong, and oceans of palm oil are filling the world vegetable oil markets with confidence that supplies are ample. The real reason for canola’s lagging performance is its failure to grab onto the gains of soybean meal. Since the beginning of June, soybeans have risen 30 percent, but canola has increased only 15 percent.


Soy oil has risen 10 percent and soybean meal has risen 45 percent. Canola can’t be expected to keep up with soybean meal prices dollar for dollar because soybeans are a far more mealy product. Eighty percent of the weight of the soybean is meal, while only 55 percent of the canola seed is meal. The bulk of canola’s value comes from its oil. However, canola meal is also heavily discounted versus soybean meal

because it has a lower feed value. It is a premium feed only to dairy cattle and some poultry. For other livestock, it’s generally seen as a secondrate feed component. However, canola marketers argue that it has more feeding value than many feeders and manufacturers think and suffers from a bias of being seen as just a dairy feed. Now that soybean meal supplies are critically low, people might be more open to considering blending canola meal into non-traditional rations. “Whenever there’s a cheaper substitute for a high-priced staple, like soybeans, it’ll help your efforts,” said Greg Kostal of Kostal Ag Consulting. Many buyers who have never bought canola meal could try it out this year and could stick with it if they like what they see. However, Kostal thinks canola meal

will remain a dair y-heavy feed because many buyers will quickly switch back to soybean meal when it becomes more available. “This year might be more of a sugar rush type scenario,” said Kostal.


Economist expects turnaround in hogs WINNIPEG BUREAU

Barns are being cleared out, farmers are quitting the business and the next few months look dire for prairie hog producers. However, there are short-term and long-term silver linings to the black clouds once more engulfing the industry, and if farmers can find a way to survive to next summer they should be in a nice position. “Things are expected to improve very rapidly next spring and summer,” said University of Missouri hog market economist Ron Plain. “Meat prices could be way up and feed costs could drop rapidly as we move into summer.” However, right now hog farmers are in a financial freefall as feedgrain prices skyrocket and finished hog prices plummet. The high feedgrain prices are due to the U.S. Midwest drought, which has demolished U.S. corn and soybean production this year and will leave the U.S. market short of feedgrains until the South American crop is harvested. Until then, high U.S. prices will attract Canadian grain and force Canadian buyers, such as hog farmers, to bid high to keep the grain. On the other side of the margin equation, slaughter hog prices have plummeted across North America as Midwest farmers decide to sell hogs early and sell their sow herds rather than feed them through fall and winter. Packers have slashed their buying prices as a massive flow of hogs hit the packing plants in recent weeks. This is leading to enormous per-pig losses for producers across the continent. The first and worst hit are weanling producers in Manitoba, who produce piglets for U.S. feeder barns. With farmers in the U.S. clearing their barns early and keeping them empty, there is no market in many regions. “The interest of people in buying young pigs to feed is minimal,” said Plain. “If you buy now, you’re going to have to feed them $8 corn and $550 a






ton soybean meal.” That has put an incredible squeeze on weanling producers, who have few buyers and big losses on every sale. “You can’t store them and you have to feed them,” said Plain. Manitoba Pork Council chair Andrew Dickson said many Manitoba sow barns are being cleared out, especially for weanling production. Some are being shut down for good because producers can’t handle another few months of losses after the crippling losses of the late 2000s. Others are being shut down for the fall but will then go back into production. “In three months they might bring in a bunch of gilts and get going again,” said Dickson. “But it will be hard to hang onto trained staff.” It’s a time of great woe for weanling and farrow-to-finish producers, but Dickson sees good times ahead if farmers can survive long enough to get there. He agreed that meat supplies will be short next summer and there should be big demand for both prairie weanlings and slaughter animals. ‘“It could all switch around quickly,” said Dickson. “Once U.S. producers see better finished prices five months out, they’ll be buying weanlings again.” Weanling producers have been the first hit by the drought-induced problems but could lead the industry out as well. Plain is also hopeful that the fourth quarter won’t be a disaster for slaughter hog producers, even though the present price trend is ugly. Recent prices have been crushed by the surge of market hogs into packing plants, but this is unlikely to be caused by increased U.S. and Canadian hog production. Rather, it’s due to farmers moving their hogs days or weeks early to save on buying expensive feedgrains. The U.S. drought has probably pushed pig supplies forward into the packing plants, so there should be fewer of them later in the fall and less chance of a significant glut.

FED PRICES DOWN SLIGHTLY Fed steers on average fell to $109.58 per hundredweight, down 11 cents, and heifers averaged $108.73, down 21 cents. Moderate to active trade was reported with bids holding firm over the week. Most dressed trade was reported from $183 to $184 per cwt. delivered. With the Alberta-Nebraska cash to cash basis weakening, U.S. buyer interest was anticipated to be more of a factor this week. Accumulated sale volumes totalled 20,655, up 13 percent from the previous week. This week’s cash to futures basis is at the weakest level of this year closing the week at -$15.11. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reported Canadian fed exports to the U.S. for the week ending Aug. 25 totalled 3,087, down 38 percent from the previous week. Western Canadian heifer carcass weights were reported at 829 pounds, the largest since the week of April 12.

PRICES HOLD STEADY Slaughter cow prices held mostly steady this week with D1, 2 cows

firming and D3 prices barely steady. D1, D2 cows ranged $74-$85 to average $79.58. D3 cows ranged $65$77 to average $70.80. Rail grade cows were $150-$155. Dressed prices generally continued steady, ranging from $149-$154 per cwt. Butcher bull prices continue to trend seasonally lower and have slipped $3 over the past three weeks. Western Canadian non-fed slaughter for the week ending Sept. 1 was down six percent from the previous week to 3,410 head and eight percent lower than last year at 191,981.

DEMAND CONSISTENT Steer prices firmed 75 cents per cwt. higher this week and heifers traded mostly steady on a light to moderate offering. Auction volumes typically bottom out in July, then increase and peak in November. Light stockers saw good demand this week, generally trading $1-$2 per cwt. higher while mid-weights from 500-700 lb. saw prices steady to 50 cents per cwt. higher. Feeders heavier than 700 lb. traded relative to quality. This week’s auction volume of 17,068 head was nine percent smaller than last week and

down 26 percent from the same week last year. The USDA reported Canadian feeder exports to the U.S. for the week ending Aug. 25 were 917 head.

U.S. DEMAND MODERATE U.S. beef cut-out values this week strengthened on moderate demand and a light to moderate offering. AAA cut-out values to Aug. 12 were $183.06 and AA values were $179.59. The Montreal wholesale market for next week’s delivery was steady this week, ranging from $211-$213. Canadian cut-out values for the week ending Aug. 31 eased moderately lower, but compared to this week last year were $8.50 and $8 higher on AAA and AA, respectively. Canadian fed slaughter for the week ending Sept. 1 was 47,669 head. Year-to-date volumes for the same period were down three percent.

WP LIVESTOCK REPORT HOGS DOWN Concerns persisted through the week that some producers may have to liquidate herds amidst high prices for feed and oversupplied dealers. Trading was weak through the period. Iowa-southern Minnesota cash hogs delivered to plants were $50-$50.50 per hundredweight Sept. 7, similar to the previous week but down from $59-$60 Aug. 24. The U.S. pork carcass cut-out value was $78.03 Sept. 7, down from $81.48 the previous week.

U.S. federal slaughter to Sept. 8 was about 2.074 million, down from 2.282 million the previous week.

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

$1.60-$2.50. In the live market, heifers born in 2011 were $2-$2.30 and bulls were $2.20-$2.40. Feeder bulls and heifers born in 2010 were $1.90-$2.

LAMBS STEADY Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported 1,150 sheep and lambs and 21 goats traded Sept. 4. Lightweight lambs sold on a good demand at steady prices. Heavy lambs sold $3-$5 cwt. lower. Sheep traded $5 cwt. higher. Goats sold steady.

Organic, conventional food systems can co-exist


ew credible organic organizations make definitive claims that organic food is more nutritious than food grown by conventional methods. Yet a Stanford University study published last week stating that there is no nutritional difference between the two types of food generated headlines and widespread surprise from those who believed organic produce to be superior. Greater nutrition in organic food appears to be just one of those assumptions, or “truths,” that arise if the message is heard frequently enough to become familiar, even if no one can pinpoint the original source of the information. A large percentage of consumers have accepted the idea of organic food’s nutritional superiority. A 2010 Nielsen study surveyed 27,000 consumers in 55 markets around the world about their reasons for buying organic food. Seventy-six percent said it was because organic food was healthier and 51 percent said it was because it was more nutritious. Respondents could provide more than one reason, as the numbers show. Those who believe there is greater nutrition in organic food might be tempted to label this latest research as just one more study, using limited data, that doesn’t support their assumptions. However, this particular research is a “meta-study,” an analysis of many other studies. Stanford researchers examined 237 papers about diet types and 223 studies that compared nutrient levels in various products, both organic and conventionally grown. “There isn’t much difference between organic and conventional foods, if you’re an adult and making a decision based solely on your health,” said Dr. Dena Bravata, senior author of the meta-study paper. The Organic Facts website explains the nutrition idea thus: “The health benefits of organic food are more perceived than real. However, the public opinion that organic food (is) healthier than conventional food is quite strong and is the sole reason for about 30 percent growth in the

organic food industry since the past five to six years.” Maybe the root of the organic nutrition belief lies in the comparative taste of produce. If it tastes better, it must be better for you, right? But there again, we find confusion over whether the organic tomato tastes better because of production methods or because it was vine-ripened, a luxury large scale producers and shippers cannot usually afford. The real benefit of organic production, as most organic farmers will say, is environmental sustainability — food produced without the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides, using methods considered gentler for the soil, flora and fauna. Author and organic food proponent Michael Pollan made that point in an interview posted on the News Fix blog. “I think we’re kind of erecting a straw man and then knocking it down, the straw man being that the whole point of organic food is that it’s more nutritious. The whole point of organic food is that it’s more environmentally sustainable. That’s the stronger and easier case to make.” Pollan and others in the organic food industry have been successful in defending that case. Organic and conventional farm production both have an important place in the food system. Consumers want the choice and the market must supply it. When it comes to food supply, it should not be an “us versus them” scenario, conventional versus organic. There is need and desire for both. Now that the nutritional misconceptions have been exposed, conventional producers can continue to promote their contribution of economical and plentiful food, and organic producers can continue to promote their contribution of food they consider to be kinder to the planet. Consumers will derive nutrition from both.

Farm supports, food safety, rail service among issues awaiting ministers NATIONAL VIEW



arliament will have a farm issue-heavy agenda when it returns from its 12-week summer hiatus next week. Well, the Senate doesn’t come back for an extra week but that is a different story, even though the Senate fits into this scenario. Of course, the agriculture-related agenda will not be obvious from mainstream media coverage, but

what else is new? And for the first parliamentary session in more than a decade, few CWB issues should surface. But in case there is a rural view that the parliamentary agenda is agriculture-light, here are some of the issues that MPs and senators will be debating that could affect farm business: • the federal government will introduce legislation in autumn to set railway service standards. Grain Growers of Canada said last week it should “provide some balance of power between the oligopoly the railways currently enjoy and people like us who are required by distance to be their customers” • senators, once they reconvene in late September, will resume debate on a new comprehensive food

safety bill that eventually will impose more stringent on-farm traceability requirements. Once it gets through the Senate, the bill will come to the House of Commons for debate and public hearings • the government will be introducing Canada Grain Act amendments that substantially change the powers of the Canadian Grain Commission. Critics will say it tilts the balance toward the private sector while supporters will insist it makes the grain industry oversight system more modern and efficient • a number of trade deals will be introduced for ratification and many will offer ag export opportunities. The key deal, if negotiators sign off this year, will be with the European Union and its potential

for exports, as well as the European demand for more dairy access • while it is not a strictly agricultural issue, the Conservative government is expected to use its growing Senate majority this winter to propose legislation that will limit Senate terms and offer provinces the opportunity to hold elections for Senate candidate appointments • the Senate agriculture committee will continue hearings into ag research issues that could result in a report that lays the groundwork for research funding changes • changes to farm support programs approved by federal and provincial ministers this week in Whitehorse may not require legislation but will be fodder for opposition questions about falling farm support

As it prepared for Parliament’s return last week, the Conservativealigned Grain Growers lobby wrote to prime minister Stephen Harper to make some reasonable points. Support rail service standards, they said. Don’t spend all the time launching new trade negotiations without closing some of the deals now in discussion. And on changes to farm support programs, make sure that farmers who will be affected are consulted. So far, they largely have been excluded. GGC says its farmer members do not want to depend on government aid programs, but if they don’t have a say in designing alternative programs — who knows? It seems like reasonable advice from a friend of the government.





Consumers deserve GM labels on food

Stock inventory shows bins nearly empty



he WP editorial “GM labelling unnecessary; focus must be s a f e t y , h e a l t h” ( Au g . 2 3 ) deserves some more attention. If Proposition 37 passes in California, the words “partially produced with genetic engineering” would be required on the package. More than 40 countries currently have genetic modification food labelling. Polls in North America show that the majority of consumers want GMOs labelled. Since they pay taxes, they feel that they should have a right to know what they are eating. Fair enough. Why shouldn’t GM foods be labelled? The idea that GMO labelling will raise food costs is questionable. Manufacturers change their labelling all the time — anytime their product is “new and improved” or they change a logo — and those costs are not passed onto the consumer. When the government required nutritional information to be posted on each container, prices didn’t go up because of it. Another non-issue is the threat of nuisance lawsuits. The California initiative does not include the controversial bounty fees (lawsuits that allow plaintiffs to keep a “bounty” of 25 percent of civil penalties collected.) Ditto the litigation costs to the state. A recent analysis by Joanna Shepherd Bailey, professor of analytical methods at Emory Law School, found that administrative costs will be less than $1 million — that is, less than one cent for each person living in California.



Until the government conducts long-term, independent safety tests of genetically modified food, GM products should be labelled so consumers can make their own choices, says a nutritionist. | FILE PHOTO So red herrings aside, what about health and safety? The government should protect the public from danger and support its ability to make healthful choices. However, no longterm studies exist on the safety of GM food. Neither Health Canada nor the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has conducted studies on GM foods. All safety testing is done by the biotech companies and their data is accepted without independent backup testing. It is a conflict of interest to ask the industry to police itself. The biotech industry claims that GM food is not substantially different than regular food, yet it is so radically different that the seeds can be patented. Dozens of independent studies worldwide raise questions about allergies and other potential health risks. In the 1990s, the British government awarded a grant of $1.6 million to conduct a rigorous safety assess-

ment of GM food. Arpad Pusztai led a team of 20 scientists in an animal testing study and concluded that the GM plant he was using caused considerable health problems to the animals, including damage to their organs and immune systems. He faced extreme pressure to recant his research but refused. Twenty-three top scientists from around the world peer reviewed the research, and the study was officially published in the Lancet. Pesticides and herbicides appear to cause harm in even modest amounts. A recently published study in the journal Toxicology in Vitro showed that glyphosate, which is frequently present residually in GM food, can affect men’s testosterone and sperm counts. Pesticides are linked to Parkinson’s disease and lymphomas. The organic sector could be one avenue for consumers to avoid GMOs, but for how long?

GM seeds and pollen transfer into the fields of organic farmers. Cross contamination occurs and is unavoidable. It is a dilemma for all nonGM farmers. Even the farmers who used GM seed to increase yields are running into problems with weed and pesticide resistance. The technology is failing. GM technology is the only technology that can’t be stopped. Even nuclear plants can be shut down, but GM is forever. We all eat, so it is of vital importance to protect our food supply and not be casual about the long-term complications that come with GM technology. Consumers never asked for GM food. Until the government fulfills its responsibility to conduct independent safety testing, surely the least we can expect is labelling. Heidi Osterman is a certified nutritionist in Kelowna, B.C.


Counting chickens before they hatch a downer HURSH ON AG



or a variety of reasons, the Saskatchewan crop is turning out to be average or even less than average. The latest crop report from the Saskatchewan agriculture ministry confirms the shrinking potential. In both the southeastern and southwestern corners of the province, crop reporters describe yields as average to very poor. In the eastcentral, west-central and northeastern regions, the description is less than average to very poor. The northwest is slightly more optimistic with yields described as “variable and, for the most part, disappointing.” While the average yield of canola is

pegged at 30 bushels per acre in the northwest, it’s only 24 in the eastcentral region. Unlike last year, you don’t hear many stories of 50 plus canola. Canola has been a disappointment in most of Western Canada. Sclerotinia and aster yellows have exacted a toll. Flooding in the spring and too much heat in July and August have added to the woes. Parts of Manitoba were uncharacteristically dry, cutting production levels. While producers are generally disappointed with their canola yields, some of the financial hit is being offset by prices that are considerably higher than most were anticipating. Crop woes in Saskatchewan can usually be summed up quite easily. In recent years, it’s been flooding and unseeded acres. Often it’s drought in one region or another. Sometimes it’s been an early fall frost that’s cut yield and quality. Wet harvest weather and subsequent quality downgrades can also be an overriding concern that defines the growing season.

This year’s disappointment isn’t as easy to explain. It’s a combination of too wet in the spring, too hot and dry in July and a lot of disease pressure. Crop quality is also down, which doesn’t usually correspond to an earlier than normal harvest. In many parts of the central and northern grain belt, there’s standing water from recent heavy rains. Across the south, it’s very dry. Clay soil has cracks that can swallow a wrench. Although weather conditions have varied, the end result is the same. There won’t be the bushels or the quality that were anticipated. Whenever crops are below average, there are farms with much below average production. Overall though, it won’t be a financial disaster. It won’t be as lucrative as it might have been, but record and near-record high prices should ensure that most producers have a profitable year. What are the other ramifications? There might be less enthusiasm next spring to push rotations to seed more canola. When you take into account

the extra cost of growing canola, cereal crops could look more competitive than usual. The grain handling system is going to see less total volume than expected, which will affect the bottom line of elevator companies and trucking firms. Less grain to move should ensure a less congested handling system. There won’t be record volumes to move in a transition year for how grain cars are allocated. Will lower yields slow the rise in land prices and cash rents? My guess is not appreciably. As long as grain prices stay strong and interest rates low, farmers and others will be chasing farmland. Farmers are generally pretty good at not counting their chickens before they hatch. Nothing is sure until the crop is in the bin. As this year proves, that caution is also warranted on an industry-wide basis. Kevin Hursh is an agricultural journalist, consultant and farmer. He can be reached by e-mail at


f you’re wondering what your neighbour, or the farmer in the neighbouring province, has in the bin, the answer is probably not much. Statistics Canada information as of July 31 shows that total stocks of wheat, barley and canola are down from a year earlier, and we are talking way down. While these are not historic lows, there are some remarkable plunges in carry-outs, with canola leading the way. Total stocks are down 64 percent from 2011 to 787,700 tonnes, but on-farm stocks are at 225,000 tonnes, the lowest since 2004. However, in the years since, farmers have seeded increasingly larger amounts of canola, and crushers have been buying pretty much everything they can get their hands on, so this is a different environment from eight years ago. Therefore, this dramatic drop is significant. For canola stocks to be this low, farmers must have been aggressively cleaning out their bins in anticipation of this year’s harvest, which was widely expected to be enormous, at least based on seeded acreage. Unfortunately, yellow asters, sclerotinia, hot weather, and variously wet and dry conditions have kicked some of the stuffing out of the canola crop. But if you are among those with fabulous canola, you’ll be laughing all the way to the crusher’s gate. Wheat, meanwhile, may reclaim its royalty status. Total wheat stocks decreased 18 percent to 5.9 million tonnes, but again, that’s mostly due to the on-farm decline of nearly 900,000 tonnes. Wheat stocks excluding durum are at their lowest point since 2008, at 4.4 million tonnes, and well below the five-year average of five million tonnes. Farmers were likely cleaning out their pre-CWB monopoly crop in anticipation of a new start, while also cashing in on higher prices because of American and Russian droughtrelated pressure. Western Canadian stocks are mirroring what’s going on in the rest of the world. Drought will reduce stocks, countries are buying for fear of being caught short, and prices, naturally, are following the usual supply and demand fundamentals. If you are combining even a reasonable canola or wheat crop (or for that matter, rye, mustard, chickpeas or barley), you probably have lots of room in the bin, and plenty of marketing options bolstered by strong prices.

What (agriculture minister Gerry) Ritz and (CWB president Ian) White left off their pronouncements in the Aug. 9 Western Producer, “Despite offers, CWB isn’t for sale,” was “yet.” Government appointed White states, “we want to ensure that we talk to farmers about privatizing the CWB at some point in the future.” Presumably that will mean the same thing to Conservatives as ending the monopoly. Ergo, if the western provinces give the Conservatives a majority in the 2015 election, that will mean farmers want privatization, and decades of

farmer equity will vanish into the government’s treasury. That certainly wouldn’t be motivation for the government, would it? Dianne McCollum, Dunnville, Ont.

WRONG CHARGES To the Editor: It seems the media is letting (prime minister Stephen) Harper and (agriculture minister Gerry) Ritz keep spinning the false statements about these farmers that they pardoned. These farmers were first charged for not having a Canada Customs

export license/permit. Everyone exporting any Canadian goods, oil, wheat, barley, canola, oats, chicken, pork, beef must have a Canada Customs export license/permit. Some of these farmers’ vehicles were put into the customs compound, (while) other vehicles were in the process of being impounded. The farmers were told they would have to arrange for their own transportation to get home. The farmers realized that Canada Customs and media were not paying enough attention to them, so they took their vehicles from the Canada Customs compound and headed home. The farmers were arrested and thrown in jail for removing their

vehicles from the Canada Customs compound, not for selling grain. Harper and Ritz want the general public to feel sorry for these poor, poor farmers and believe they were wrongly convicted. If you or I had broken the Canada Customs Act and then removed our seized vehicles, we would be charged and not pardoned, but Harper and Ritz have done a fine job undermining, destroying and dismantling the single desk monopoly marketing agency that farmers controlled. Matter of fact, Ritz has admitted that they (the government) have already entertained two offers from two grain companies to purchase the CWB. This was the government’s intention from the beginning: take the monopoly from farmers and then turn all control over to the multinational grain companies so the grain companies can sell to the end users. Now, there is no power for farmers. You, the reader, be the judge of all the bull the government is feeding everyone. David Bailey, Saskatoon, Sask.

CONVICTED LAWBREAKERS To the Editor: Prime minister Stephen Harper misrepresented the facts by claiming that the farmers he plans to pardon broke Canadian Wheat Board laws. This is simply not true. These farmers, whom he committed to pardon, broke various laws and were convicted under the Immigration Act, the Customs Act and the Criminal Code of Canada. When it suited their purposes, these same offenders used the threat of physical violence on unarmed customs officers. Lawbreakers have the right to apply for a pardon. However, by using his executive powers to pardon these convicted lawbreakers, the prime minister is sending a signal to all Canadians that in Harper’s Canada, there are two kinds of citizens: Conservatives and their supporters, and the rest of us. For the prime minister to use his powers of pardon based on ideology undermines justice for all. Wayne Easter, Liberal MP Malpeque, Ottawa, Ont.

BIASED RANT To the Editor: I am surprised that The Western Producer ran Mr. William Dascavich’s biased and inaccurate rant (WP open forum), titled Super Rich Club, about the Bilderberg group in the Aug.16 edition. I suggest the WP and all its readers check the full site of this group and decide for themselves if it has any subversive or world domination capitalist agenda: html. Of course, it is amusing to publish a hysterical, wacky letter to the WP’s editor for its shock effect on readers. However, the voice of reason calls for fact checking, website viewing

OPINION and considering whether or not the Bilderberg group’s think-tank intentions are genuine or merely a ruse for something much more sinister. Mr. Dascavich needs to get a grip. Candy Watson, Riverview, N.B.

GOATS IN THE GARDEN To the Editor: “Something got your goat?” letters page WP, Aug. 30. This phrase refers to the state of mind (agitated) that exists when the goats got into the garden when the gardener’s back was turned. Goats are intelligent enough to know when an opportunity exists. What gave them that intelligence? Goats are mountain dwellers and have found safety on the slopes of the

mountains where their agility was better than lions and most other predators. This use of terrain provides the evolutionary mechanism to develop their intelligence. Gazelles know only to run like crazy when confronted with predators. Animal domestication was one of the most important events in human history. A reliable food supply was achieved by having a herd of domesticated animals. Filipe Pereira and António Amorim of the University of Porto in Portugal used genetic and archaeological techniques to suggest that goats were the first animals to be domesticated. The intelligence of goats made it possible for them to transfer the idea of the safety of the slopes to the safety of human protection. What would be the reason for humans to keep goats on a daily basis? Perhaps a mother could not supply her infant with milk.


Keeping their infants alive would be a tremendous value for the new farmers. Managing goats to keep them alive and available for their milk would have been the first duties of the first farmers. Humans owe their civilization to goats. Clark Lysne, Wetaskiwin, Alta.

SAFETY FIRST To the Editor: I do not read every issue of The Western Producer, but because I live on a farm, I often glance at it when it is on our office table. I have commented to our staff, many times, that I am going to contact you about the “cute pictures” of children that you include. I never have, even though it bothers

me to no end. I work in a school in a rural area and we never stop trying to impress to our children the importance of farm safety. Be safe, stay away from farm machinery. Then I open up the paper and the caption says, “Girls on back of tractor.” You have got to be kidding me. They are leaning over the back of a wheel. Is the tractor running, is this a staged picture? Why can’t they be just walking in the field not concerned with the money slipping through their fingers? And besides, what does this caption have to do with little children? This is not the only such picture that your paper has included. Today’s front page of the Lethbridge Herald has a story about safety and farm children. It says, “there are some recent statistics that point increasing risks on farms when it comes to safety of children.

“The rate of agricultural related deaths among children went up 5.8 percent each year between 1992 and 2009 despite the fact that the overall number of children living on farms in the past two decades has dropped by 50 percent.” I know that this article is related to child labour on the farms, but your recent pictures of Hutterite children working and playing around farm equipment is not cute. It is dangerous. Look at the numbers of Hutterite children that die in farm-related accidents. The number of children living on Hutterite colonies has not decreased. So in our schools we’ll just keep preaching safety and keep pointing out to them the dangers that can happen from this kind of cute picture taking. Shirley Serfas, Turin, Alta.

oo often, we try to make things easier for our children, for our elderly parents or for those who are less fortunate. But the biblical storytellers help us see life from a different perspective. At one point, when the Philistine army faced the Israelite army, things became tense. The Philistines, who seemed to be stronger, taunted their enemy and threatened them. A crack soldier named Goliath came to the front lines each morning to challenge the Israelites to send someone to do battle. The victor would declare his army the conqueror. Young David heard of the challenge while he was delivering food to the front line. He eventually offered to take up the challenge. With all the naïveté of youth, he reasoned that if he was able to fight lions while protecting his father’s sheep, he could be a match for Goliath. After a great deal of convincing his brothers and other people assembled, including the king, the responsibility was given to David. King Saul offered David his armour, sword and shield. David refused. He had his sling and stones. Before Goliath could swallow his pride and anger enough to assume a battle stance, David downed him with a stone thrown from his shepherd’s sling. The sages implied that David’s family hadn’t over-protected him. He had to assume his share in the work and responsibility that kept the family alive. As a shepherd, David faced the threat of the hillsides on his own. This is how he discovered his strengths and weaknesses. He matured quickly and gained a degree of wisdom. How else can we learn what we have to offer? David couldn’t walk in Saul’s armour. His strength lay elsewhere.

Seeing is believing for Japanese wheat buyers Showa Sangyo sold on Canadian quality | Grain handler, bakery visit Alberta to see and learn about wheat production BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

McLENNAN, Alta. — One of Japan’s largest millers and bakers wasn’t taking anyone’s word on the Canadian wheat harvest. It wanted

to check out the wheat harvest in person. “The purpose of this trip is to check and see the wheat, the wheat harvest and we like to know about the quality of the wheat,” said Hiroaki Watanabe of Showa Sangyo, one of Japan’s larg-

est grain handlers during the opening of the Cargill elevator in northern Alberta. “We need 1CW, good bakery needs 1 CW. It is good for us to hear that producers in Canada are looking for the good harvest,” said Watanabe,

whose company imports two million tonnes of wheat each year. Part of Showa’s milled grain production is sold to Yoshitaka Kumagai’s Ajinomoto Bakery, which produces frozen bakery dough for about 6,000 of Japan’s 15,000 7/11

convenience stores. With Watanabe acting as an interpreter, Kumagai said he believes it’s important for him and his employees to see where the wheat in their bakery is grown. “Looking is important, but one time





Cargill president has warm outlook U.S. drought | Canadians should not expect too much from U.S. weather problems BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Yoshitaka Kumagai, president of Ajinomoto bakery, and Hiroaki Watanabe of the Showa Sangyo milling company, shell out wheat in a field at McLennan, Alta. | MARY MACARTHUR PHOTO is not enough,” said Kumagai, who travelled to Alberta a year ago to look at crops and will continue to i n s p e c t Ca n a d i a n w h e a t a n d canola fields and meet with Canadian farmers. “We would like to see the machines like combines and the facilities they have for harvest like silos, dryer,” said Kumagai, who wants to continue to buy Canadian wheat. “The quality of the grain in Canada is pretty higher than the other countries. Showa Sangyo would like to buy Canadian wheat, especially, number one. We like to be stable and have high quality. That is why we will continue to buy 1CW from Canada.” Watanabe doesn’t yet know how

the drought in the American Midwest will affect his business. Japanese millers must buy their grain from the government, which sets prices every six months. With Canada’s good crop, he expects any price jumps to be minimal. “I have a kind of confidence it will be not so impacted by the U.S. because Canada has pretty much a good harvest this year.” Watanabe said they would also be looking at the canola harvest, especially high oleic canola for baking. “The demand for high oleic canola is rapidly increasing for us. The demand is coming from factory, which make rice for bento box, rice for rice cake and they need to use a lot of oil.”

McLENNAN, Alta. — Canadian far mers w ill be helped by the drought in the American Midwest, but they shouldn’t assume they can nab lucrative American markets, said the president of Cargill Ltd. “It won’t be as simple as Canadian grain replacing American grain,” said Len Penner in an interview during the grand opening of a new 28,000 tonne Cargill grain elevator in McLennan. “It is truly a global picture.” He said Cargill and other companies regularly move grain from areas with surplus to areas of need. The weather patterns that affected U.S. corn and bean production and crops in Russia shift every year and this year Canadian farmers have benefited with high commodity prices. “As part of that, that does open the door for more Canadian grain to find a home,” said Penner. “It’s a super good news story for Canadian farmers, the shortage of supply against a fixed demand. The world still needs grain.” Canada exports 70 percent of its grain production, and shortages caused by weather in other parts of the world create market opportunities for Canadian grain producers.


Penner also discussed changes brought about by the end of the Canadian Wheat Board’s export monopoly. Cargill is one of several grain companies with handling agreements with the new CWB. Penner said he thinks some farmers are still looking for a pooling program to market their wheat. “Our choice has been to say the wheat board is the best manager of the pool account. They have been doing it for the longest. If a farm customer of ours is looking at that as a marketing option for their wheat, we will direct them to the Canadian Wheat Board.” Penner said Cargill’s role would be helping farm customers find their way in the new wheat marketing era. “The biggest challenge is helping farmers understand the complexity of this change and how they will have to evaluate the options that they have. Marketing wheat is more complex than marketing canola.”

Grades, varieties, protein levels and delivery dates all affect wheat price, which add complexity to finding the best grain price. As one of the world’s largest grain companies, operating in 65 countries, Penner said Cargill is used to working in many different types of marketing environments. He said Cargill’s international grain customers, including Japanese visitors also at the grand opening of the northern Alberta elevator, raised questions about the new marketing system in Western Canada. “All of our key global customers have had a similar question. What is this change going to mean to me. They need wheat. They want Canadian wheat.” The new grain elevator is Cargill’s second major facility in the Peace River area including a large throughput elevator at Rycroft. Guy Berube, a Falher farmer, said he is pleased Cargill has built another elevator. “It’ll bring some competition. This is good,” said Berube, who farms 9,000 acres with his brothers just north of Falher. Eli Wipf of the Twilight Colony at Falher said the increased elevator space will help give farmers more space for their grain straight off the combine. “Another buyer is always good,” said Wipf.

CWB pleased with grain movement, producer interest BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Wheat committed to CWB pools is moving through the commercial grain handling system as expected, CWB officials said last week. However, some elevator companies in Western Canada are still not taking delivery of new crop CWB grain at certain locations, they added, stressing that delivery opportunities will improve as the marketing year progresses. “(Grain) companies are competing for CWB business,” said Gord Flaten, CWB vice-president of grain procurement. “Having said that, we know that

some farmers may have been told by grain companies, so far, that they cannot accept (CWB) deliveries yet or don’t know what the deductions are going to be for freight and handling.” He said that’s normal. “Some of these companies have joined our programs just recently so my message on that is for farmers to keep on checking with (different) companies as they work out all the details.” In a Sept. 7 conference call with prairie farmers, Flaten and CWB president Ian White told farmers grain is being delivered against new CWB contracts. They said CWB grain is moving

despite delivery glitches, and producer interest in its early delivery and harvest pools looks promising. Flaten said CWB grain handling agreements stipulate that grain companies must handle specific volumes of CWB grain each month. Failure to meet those contractual obligations will result in penalties, he added. In addition, farmers who participate in CWB pools can deliver grain to any elevator company, which will spur competition among handlers. “We’ve designed our contracts so farmers have total flexibility,” Flaten said.“No matter where they sign their (CWB) contracts … they can take that contract and shop it around, so what

we would suggest for farmers is to ask several different companies what sort of deal (they) can get on freight and handling charges and delivery opportunities and then go where it best suits (their) business needs.” In the months leading up to Aug. 1, supporters of single-desk marketing argued that converting the CWB to a voluntary marketing board would put it at a competitive disadvantage to private sector grain companies. Without its own elevator system, the voluntary CWB would depend on competing companies to move pooled grain, they said. CWB officials last week said growers should not read too much into the

fact that wheat board grain is not being accepted at all locations. The grain industry is adjusting to the new marketing environment and demand for elevator space is particularly high at harvest time, when many growers are looking to sell grain directly off the combine. “There are companies that aren’t ready yet, at some of their stations, to confirm to farmers what the deductions will be because they just haven’t communicated that completely through their companies,” Flaten said. “We have some companies too, where they’re still clearing out old crop … and they’re waiting until that’s done before they start taking new crop deliveries, but there’s no company that is saying to us that they’re not going to take CWB deliveries. It’s just a matter of timing, really, at this stage.” Last year’s grain can be delivered against 2011-12 contracts until Sept 14. Flaten also reminded farmers that sign-up deadlines are approaching for 2012-13 pools. The deadline for the early delivery pool is Sept. 28 or until the program is fully subscribed. The deadline for the harvest pool is Oct. 31. Space in voluntary pools is limited and there is no guarantee farmers will be able to sign up production after sign-up deadlines have passed. Producers in some areas have been reluctant to commit production to CWB pools because crop development is behind schedule and the threat of frost could significantly affect yield and crop quality. Flaten said producers who enter CWB contracts are protected by an act of God clause that limits liability if growers are unable to deliver contracted tonnage. In addition, producers who commit to the pools will not be penalized for specifying incorrect grades or protein levels, as long as they amend their contracts before the pool signup deadlines. “If you make a contract with us, then we ask you to give us an indication of what the grade and protein is that you expect,” Flaten said. “Then, you have the chance to confirm that (information) or change it for free up until the pool sign-up deadlines.… Even after that, we will be as flexible as we can to make changes.” Unlike the old CWB system, which used contract calls and gave all producers an equal opportunity to make deliveries, the new system puts a greater onus on individual growers to discuss CWB delivery opportunities with grain handling companies. Flaten said some producers have already finished delivering grain against their CWB contracts. “We’ve had some farmers who have negotiated those deals already and some have actually delivered their entire contracts for the early delivery pools already at this early stage.” Limited elevator capacity means not all farmers will have an opportunity to deliver grain off the combine, he added. “The system just can’t accommodate it all.” The Western Producer is seeking feedback from farmers about their experiences in signing grain contracts and delivering CWB grain.

Lethbridge College expands rural reach Vulcan campus | Video conferencing and direct instruction offered BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Just in time for the start of a new semester, Lethbridge College has opened its fifth rural campus. Vulcan, about 75 kilometres north of Lethbridge, will be offering college courses using video conferencing as well as direct instruction. The town joins the ranks of rural college campuses in Fort Macleod, Claresholm, Pincher Creek and Crowsnest Pass. Courses in Vulcan this year will include unit clerk, wind turbine technician, pre-employment welding and pre-employment electrician training. Leslie Warren, economic development officer for Vulcan’s business development society, said the rural campus is a good fit for the Vulcan Innovation Project. “Part of that project was to try to bring post secondary education to the community using technology,” said Warren Aug. 28. College credit courses have been offered in the past at Vulcan with funding from Rural Alberta Development. The new agreement with Lethbridge College will allow a wider selection of courses and more opportunities for students to access funding. “It’s not only bringing education here but hopefully knowledge can be provided from here to other centres,” Warren said. Rather than invest in infrastructure, the town will use existing space for instruction at the high school and other venues. Videoconferencing will be used in some courses and local instructors and those from Lethbridge will also be involved. For the wind turbine course, students will use four electrical labs at the high school and a partial turbine that was moved to Vulcan by the college for instructional use. Warren said she hopes the greater availability of college courses will also help attract businesses to the community because local training will be available for employees. As an example, a large wind farm is being developed in the southern part of Vulcan County. The agreement for the rural campus is a result of co-operation between the college, Palliser School Division, Vulcan County Adult Learning Council and Vulcan Business Development. In a news release, Lethbridge College rural education co-ordinator Leah Wack applauded the co-operation involved. “The agreement is really just recognizing the work we’ve been doing with the community for a number of years already,” she said. “It takes a lot of goodwill, patience, and co-ordination to establish this type of relationship and our partners in Vulcan have made all the difference.”

Supply management costs public: report Quebec economist says the policy does not increase farm income and results in higher prices BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

The latest in a long string of antisupply management salvos comes from a one-time influential Quebec ally of the system. For many years, Mario Dumais worked as an economist for Quebec’s powerful farm organization Union des Producteurs Agricoles and then as secretary general for the Coopéra-

tive Fédérée de Québec, which both strongly support marketing boards. Last week, the conservative Montreal Economic Institute published a study by Dumais that calls for the end of supply management and compulsory farm marketing boards in general. He wrote that according to international calculations, supply management in dairy, poultry and eggs has increased prices and cost Canadian consumers almost $4 billion in higher foods prices per year between 2008 and 2010. Dumais argued that supply management has not achieved its goals of increasing farm income or preserving the family farm. Much of the increase in farm income is capitalized into quota debt, while farm numbers in the affected sectors continue to fall, he argued. He recommended that supply management be eliminated over seven or eight years and that producers be compensated for quota value loss through a consumer tax that would temporarily fill the gap between lower market prices and what they pay now. It is the model that Australia used in the 1990s when it ended dairy supply management. “The liberalization of markets consists of eliminating tariffs and marketing monopolies to bring Canadian prices for products in line with international levels,” he wrote in the report published Aug. 28. “At the same time, there can be a temporary tax equal to the current subsidy from consumers to producers. By collecting this, the buyback of quotas would be completed in seven or eight years without consumer prices having to be raised any higher than before.” After that, “processors and consumers would save the equivalent of $3.9 billion from that point onward.” Dumais argued that the end of the CWB’s export monopoly this year was “an important and laudable step,” but it should be extended to other sectors despite government support for supply management. “Logically, all farmers should enjoy this freedom to set out on their own and market their products themselves,” he wrote. He said the end of farmer marketing board monopolies would mean “the agricultural sector would no longer be subject to rigid outdated constraints, which would promote producers’ entrepreneurial initiatives and as a result would lead to more innovation.” However, Dumais also said there is no consumer resistance against supply management costs because food is a relatively small part of most household budgets. “The adoption of agricultural policies aiming to promote entrepreneurship and freedom requires informed public opinion and a political class with long-term vision,” he said. “These are necessary conditions to realizing the competitive potential of our agri-food sector and thereby allowing it to contribute to the prosperity of the country.”

Atchoo! Allergy season ahead Protect lungs from grain dust | Farmers can develop allergies, asthma, infections and more BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Farmers may be harvesting more than they bargained for this fall. The grain dust they inhale into their lungs contains grain partic l e s, m o u l d s, i n s e c t s, m i t e s, fungi and other organic material that can cause minor irritation to debilitating lifetime lung diseases. Niels Koehncke, associate professor of occupational medicine with the Canadian Centre for Health and Safety in Agriculture, said it’s difficult to pinpoint what’s at the root of the health problems. “There’s a lot we still don’t quite understand about grain dust allergy and grain dust irritation,” he said. What is known is that breathing grain dust can cause short-term respirator y problems such as coughing, shortness of breath and irritation of the nose and throat or can lead to long-term ailments such as allergies, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or farmer’s lung. Koehncke said farmers can protect themselves by adopting a few simple practices. The first is avoidance. While it’s not always possible to reduce exposure to dust at harvest, there are times when farmers can position themselves so that they’re out of the path of the dust. “If you’re doing some shoveling or moving grain, then you can stay up wind,” he said. “Those sorts of simple things, just to keep yourself out of the dust cloud.” The most practical solution is to wear a proper dust mask during times of high exposure. Farmers should use masks with a minimum N95 filtration efficiency rating. Koehncke said they don’t need the black Darth Vader type masks. A white, two-strap paper mask available at most retailers will suffice as long as it has the N95 rating. The letter N isn’t as important as the number 95. A different letter means it filters out other material besides dust. He acknowledged that many producers don’t like wearing masks when it’s hot out and they’re exerting themselves, but that’s exactly when they should be wearing them because they are breathing more deeply and frequently. “Compliance is sometimes very poor just because it’s not comfortable,” said Koehncke. The masks don’t have to be worn


Pediatricians want minimum age for ATV operators BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Many producers don’t like wearing masks when it’s hot out and they’re exerting themselves, but that’s exactly when they should be wearing them because they are breathing more deeply and frequently. | FILE PHOTOS all the time, just during periods of high exposure to dust. The CCHSA has produced a video about respiratory hazards on the farm that can be found at aghealth. video-breathe-easy.php. In the video, Shelly Kirychuk, a s s i s t a n t p ro f e s s o r w i t h t h e CCHSA, says the health effects of grain dust are influenced by the type of harvest activity, method of grain storage and type of grain with which the farmer is working. “Barley dust, as most farmers know, or canar y dust is much harsher on your respiratory system than other grain dust,” she said. “It has little bars on it or little tentacles that kind of scratch on the way down. Anyone who has worked with them knows that those are the itchier dusts versus the softer dusts of wheat and canola.” Large dust particles tend to settle out in nose hairs or get caught in the

upper respiratory system. “You’ll cough and sneeze those out. The smaller dust goes deeper,” said Kirychuk. That ’s why grow ers need to ensure they use a mask with a minimum N95 rating, which filters out the small dust particles. Farmers need to be extra cautious when moving grain or hay that has sat for a while and may contain mould spores. Inhaling them can lead to organic dust toxic syndrome, a short-term illness characterized by coughing, fever, chills, laboured breathing and muscle pain, but it can also lead to farmer’s lung, which is a lasting condition characterized by difficulty breathing and reduced lung capacity. Koehncke said farmer’s lung can happen quickly or can develop over prolonged exposure to certain moulds. Growers who have pre-existing lung conditions such as asthma have to be especially cautious dur-

ing harvest because the dust can trigger their symptoms. Parents should ensure that children with allergies take their medications and use their inhalers as prescribed by their doctors, said Jaimie Peters, health initiatives coordinator with the Lung Association of Saskatchewan. “Sometimes what happens in summer is kids are feeling good or they forget or they’re on holidays and they’re not taking their medications as regularly, so they’re not as prepared when they get hit by their triggers in the fall,” she said. Fall is a peak allergy season with plenty of moulds, pollens and grain dust in the air. It is also a time of stress for children heading back to school, and there will be increased exposure to the viruses that tend to circulate when large groups of children gather. When those factors are combined, they can cause problems for children with respiratory illness. Peters said Sept. 17 is the day with the most asthma-related emergencies.

The Canadian Paediatric Society says children shouldn’t be allowed to drive all-terrain vehicles unless they are 16 years or older. Updating its previous policy on ATVs, the society announced Aug. 30 it is adopting the same position as numerous health and safety organizations in North America. The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American College of Surgeons and Safe Kids Canada all want a minimum age of 16. “Children and youth younger than 16 years of age should not operate an ATV,” the society’s injury prevention committee said in its policy statement. Even though the ATV industry has introduced smaller models with less horsepower for younger riders, the pediatricians said there is limited evidence that youth models reduce injury. “This recommendation must apply to all vehicle sizes, including youth models.” The society also said helmet use should be compulsor y with no exceptions. The pediatricians said an average of 447 children younger than 15 have been hospitalized for ATV injuries in Canada annually over the past five years. An average of 179 Canadians died each year from ATV and off road vehicle injuries from 2003-07. Forty percent were younger than 20. The society attributed the high rates of injuries and deaths among youths to a number of factors, including an inclination to take foolish risks. “Inexperience, inadequate physical size and strength, immature motor and cognitive development and tending to engage in risk-taking behaviours all compound injury risks for children and youth operating ATVs,” the pediatricians stated. Jeff Mohr, president of the ATV Association of British Columbia, said he has no problem with mandatory helmet use when riding ATVs. However, he balked at legislating a minimum age of 16. “We prefer to do education over legislation,” said Mohr. “To just say that you can’t ride until you’re 16 basically eliminates a major part of family activities that most of us (ATV groups) are promoting.” Mohr said it’s difficult to pin down what causes ATV accidents because certain injuries could be related to unfamiliarity with the machine or lack of a helmet. However, he disagreed with the argument that ATVs are disproportionally more dangerous than other activities. “If you take cyclists and cycling, you’ll probably find just as many injuries.”





Families adjust with times to maintain lifestyle Proud producers | Family produces 30,000 bales for the local horse market BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

SPRINGBANK, Alta. — Rocky View Farm has captivated four generations of Longeways. Located west of Calgary in the district of Springbank, the farm oversees purple mountains, blue skies and yellow rays of sunlight across the foothills. “It doesn’t matter what time of the day or day of the week, you look out on the mountains and there is always something different,” said Debbie Lee. “The way the light shines in the morning, you see something, and by the time the shadows come in the late afternoon, you can look at the same thing and realize it changed.” The family has farmed in the area for 100 years with a strong commitment to agriculture and community. Lee works with her 86-year-old father, Eric Longeway, daughter Danielle, son Jeff and assorted other relatives. Recently named master farm family by Rocky View County, the Longeway family established the farm in 1912 after Eric’s father, Howard Longeway, came for a visit. He liked the area so much that he left his job managing a ranch in Montana and bought the quarter section next to his brother, who had arrived in 1910. Howard named it Rocky View Farm. The family traces its roots to Quebec’s Eastern Townships and before that to Protestant Huguenots who fled religious persecution in France. They eventually found their way to Canada and the United States in the late 17th century. A branch of the Longeway family still farms in Quebec. Located between the Bow and Elbow rivers, the farm has been favoured with a good climate and fertile soil. “We have been farming here for 100 years and we have never had a complete crop failure yet by hail or anything,” Eric Longeway said. The farm has raised mink, bees, pigs, poultry, crops and hay as well as beef and dairy cattle. Throughout most of his farming career, Longeway worked with his brother, Gerald, who is now 90. The mainstay of the farm was a dairy, in which they milked 60 registered Jerseys. Springbank was once the heart of Alberta’s dairy industry, but over time farms folded and now the area is a patchwork of grand country homes amidst cropland and pastures. “Everything worked good,but Jerseys were our main thing and milk was what kept us going all the time,” he said. Holstein cows were milked by hand until 1918, when the family added a milking machine because farm labour was hard to find with so many young men fighting in the First World War. The Jerseys were babied and milked by hand until 1935 and then a

modern milking system was installed. The Longeways sold pedigreed cattle around the world and had the first herd in Canada to receive a constructive breeder award from Jersey Canada, which recognizes excellence in Jersey breeding for milk production and conformation. Eric was president of Jersey Canada and of a milk foundation that provided milk to the needy. He also helped found the Dairy Nutrition Council of Alberta to promote milk products. These days, his granddaughter, Danielle Lee, does contract work with Alberta Milk as well as keeps up her duties on the farm. The family phased out the dairy in 1994 because of the workload and the expense of upgrading to meet government regulations. They also didn’t have the land base to expand. “This whole thing made it on a quarter section and a quarter section rented,” Longeway said. “Now can you make a living on a quarter section of land? No. In those days you could.” The family lives in a community where developers hungrily eye every quarter section as another windfall. They have been approached to sell many times, but Longeway refuses. “It gets in your blood and you stay here,” he said. “Farming around here isn’t what you call really economical. When you look at it, you can’t afford

to farm here, but you do it out of sentimental reasons, that’s about all.” He was a member of the municipal agr iculture ser vice board and learned that 10,000 acres in his area are in the hands of developers. “It will never go back to agriculture,” he said. Land sales are more likely to be made to developers rather than a new farmer. Local farms tend to be passed on because no one can compete for labour or land. Today, the family maintains a small cow-calf herd, sheep and other livestock, but the main business is making and selling top quality hay, mostly for the local horse market. They put up more than 30,000 small, square bales of mixed grass hay last year that receives no pesticides. However, they do fertilize. They are conscious of their neighbours as they carry on their day to day farm work. Some complain about the noise and dust while others are delighted to see cows grazing next door. That kind of environment makes it hard for young people to consider agriculture. Calgary continues to sprawl west toward their property with the lure of better paying and cleaner jobs. The choice to work on the farm was not difficult for Danielle and her cousin, Eric Longeway. Eric works for Dair yland Milk in Calgar y, but spends as much time as possible on the farm. Danielle returned after completing her degree in agriculture at the University of Alberta, her grandfather’s alma mater in 1948. “I’m here because I love agriculture and I have grown up here so the farm is my second home,” she said. “I think there is lots of opportunity in agriculture. Sometimes you have to change things to find it, but we always need food.” Eric grew up in the city but likes the

outdoors and learning about food production. “It is definitely a learning experience and I find it interesting,” he said. Debbie Lee’s oldest brother, Howard, also farmed but recently retired because of health problems. The other brothers, Jim and Ken, work in Calgary. They all come back and help evenings and weekends or pitch in for family work bees to do repairs, work in the garden or put up hay. “They come out when they are able to,” said Lee, whose husband, Pat, works in the city, while she commutes to the farm each day. Family contributes, educates Volunteering also keeps the family together. Longeway always believed in giving back to his community, and that attitude continued for his children and grandchildren. He has received the senior service award for his commitment to seniors in the province, and has volunteered with the Stampede dairy committee. He was also an active showman. Lee became the first female chair of the dair y committee and was a founder of Aggie Days, a five day children’s agriculture fair. To continue the education thread, Danielle recently became a committee chair of Agtivity in the City, which is held during the Stampede as a dedicated agriculture education site on the grounds. Aggie Days is a tour de force, in which the entire family has participated. It started as a few demonstrations during the Stampede Dairy Classic show held each spring. In 27 years, it has grown into an agriculture extravaganza taking up 100,000 sq. feet in two exhibition halls as well as a theatre and arena. Three days are set aside for school groups, including a morning for spe-

cial needs children. The doors are opened on the weekend to 30,000 children and their parents. The organizers invited commodity groups and agribusinesses, stipulating that they must educate and cannot sell anything. They want people to learn the truth about food production and believe reaching children may be the best way to spread the word. The demographics of the show is changing with more new Canadians visiting each year. “For them to come and see how we raise things is quite an eye opener for them,” said Danielle. Visitors are encouraged to ask questions. “It is when people don’t give their kids the right information or the kids see something and are afraid to ask and then assume the wrong thing,” Lee said. “We have young people who have never been on a farm and they are raising young kids.” Danielle said people are more connected with social media and have seen good and bad information on food production. “Each year you find people are further removed, but I find each year people are asking more questions,” she said. Aggie Days is also a family affair for the exhibitors and volunteers. Vacations are organized so that they have time to put on the show and make it better every year. Longeway appreciates the effort because when he showed cattle he always made time for the public by explaining what he was doing and emphasizing the importance of dairy’s contribution to food production. “We do love to share our agriculture knowledge with other people,” said Lee, speaking for her entire family. “We are proud of what we do.”





Managing stress helps MS patients

Little snacks can be packed with flavour




My adult daughter has had multiple sclerosis for 10 years. She is doing quite well and hasn’t had a relapse for awhile, but I am interested in keeping up with any new developments in the treatment of MS, particularly non-drug treatments that should have less side effects.


The MS Society of Canada is a good source of information about the disease. It offers helpful advice and support as well as access to some of the research being done on this illness. Its website can be found at The society’s main research focus is looking into the claims of CCSVI, the controversial treatments for chronic venous insufficiency or blocked veins to the brain, as well as genetics, MRI studies and the role of viruses. Several Canadian MS clinics have reported that up to 70 percent of their patients use various kinds of complementary and alternative medicines, although the types used vary widely, and individuals often switch from one type of therapy to another. It is difficult to know whether any of the successes claimed by these methods are helping, as MS often goes into remission or long periods of time. The MS society does not recommend a particular alternative medicine. Instead, it stresses that it is important for people with MS to let their doctors and other health care professionals know if they are using other kinds of medications or products along with their prescribed medications. There could be potentially dangerous interactions or side effects, including overthe-counter drugs such as cold, sinus medications or pain relievers. One recent research project has looked at the effect of weekly stress management on MS. It examined MRI brain images to see if new lesions had developed. Dr. David Mohr, professor of preventive medicine at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, is leading the research. He recently published a small trial study in the journal Neurology. “The results indicate that stress management therapy may be a useful adjunct treatment with drug therapy for MS, but a larger clinical trial is needed to confirm this”, Mohr said. Patients were also taught how to use relaxation techniques and meditation to cope with their physical reactions to stressful events that were significant but could not be avoided. Unfortunately, the therapy needs to be ongoing because the benefits wore off after sessions were discontinued. Another safe tip is to make sure that your daughter is getting sufficient vitamin D. Most people in Canada do not get enough of it, and vitamin D deficiency is thought to be a factor in the progression of MS. Clare Rowson is a retired medical doctor in Belleville, Ont. Contact:





e often serve little bites of food rather than a large meal when we gather with friends and family. Appetizers or hors d’oeuvres are fun to munch on while visiting or watching a game on TV. As a general rule, offer 10 to 12 bites per person when no dinner is served and half that number if there will be a meal later. For variety, serve at least four to six kinds of appetizers with a mix of hot and cold. Appetizers may sit out for an hour or two, so it is important to keep them in a safe temperature range to avoid food spoilage. Use a serving dish that has a cold pack inserted in the bottom to keep the cold appetizers cold and a crock pot or warming tray to keep the hot ones hot. Many appetizers can be pre-made so that they are ready to cook or remove from the refrigerator to serve. Try to make the snacks low cal and healthy. Use this opportunity to work a few more vegetables into your diet by using vegetables as the main ingredient in the appetizers.

BAKED KALE CHIPS Kale is a green leafy vegetable that is full of vitamins and minerals as well as cancer-fighting phytonutrients. A friend introduced me to this easy and nutritious snack. 1 bunch of kale 1 tbsp. olive oil sea salt

15 mL

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Using cooking shears, cut off the kale leaves from the stem and then into bite size pieces. Wash and spin dry in a salad spinner or place between towels to dry. Put dry leaves on the parchment lined cookie sheet. Drizzle oil over the kale, toss lightly and then sprinkle with sea salt. Bake until edges begin to brown but not burn. Serve immediately. Try other variations of seasonings such as seasoning salt, cajun or your favourite mixture. Adapted from www.canadian

FRIED CHICKPEAS I love chickpeas and could probably eat then right from the can as a snack, but this recipe is just one step better. Chickpeas are low in fat but high in fibre and iron. 1 19 fl. oz. can chickpeas 540 mL 1 tbsp. olive oil 15 mL salt fresh ground pepper paprika Rinse and drain canned chickpeas. Dry with paper towels and place in a frying pan with olive oil. Fry until golden brown, about five minutes.

Cut the tops off the tomatoes, hollow them out and fill with the crab mixture. Refrigerate and serve cold. Wasabi is Japanese horseradish grated into a green paste. It has a strong, hot flavour. It is sold in a toothpaste type tube and often mixed with soy sauce and used as a condiment for sushi and seafood.

SWEET POTATO WEDGES 1 sweet potato vegetable oil salt fresh ground pepper sesame seeds chili powder hot sauce or red pepper sauce 1/2 c. mayonnaise

Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C). Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and brush with vegetable oil. Peel sweet potatoes and cut in half lengthwise and then into long thin wedges. Lay the wedges in a single layer on the oiled parchment paper. Brush the sweet potato with more oil and sprinkle with coarse salt and fresh ground pepper, sesame seeds and chili powder.

Construction on the Saskatchewan legislative building began in 1908 and it opened in October 1912. | SASKATCHEWAN ARCHIVES BOARD PHOTOS



place my foot in the depression on the marble stairway and begin to climb. Each of the 85 stairs from basement to third floor is worn from 100 years of footsteps placed in the exact same spot closest to the railing. Yes, there are elevators in the Saskatchewan legislative building, but taking the stairs means walking in the footsteps of Walter Scott and the 13 other men who followed him as premier. The building is probably best known for its distinctive dome rising above the trees in south Regina, but the wear and tear on the stairways show it isn’t just another pretty structure. Cabinet ministers, building staff, tourists, reporters and countless others have pounded up and down one of the many staircases since the building officially opened in October 1912. There were even rumours of a secret staircase that allowed politicians to sneak away to play cards. Current premier Brad Wall prefers to park in front of the building, rather than in the more private parking by the back door. This way he can climb the steps to the main doors and then the grand staircase, also known as the Staircase of Honour, to the second floor rotunda and his office. “It’s a great reminder of the privilege we have to work there at least for a short period of time. It’s a pretty historic entrance. It’s been the site of protests that eventually informed policy like Medicare.” There is a sense of awe at being in a place that holds so much history. Construction of the building began in 1908 and signaled a grand

future for young Saskatchewan. Scott believed tens of millions of people would eventually live in the province, and he wanted a legislative building that could accommodate the future needs of a province that large. However, the decision to locate the stone and marble structure south of the growing downtown area of Regina and the Wascana Creek reservoir was actually a recommendation by deputy premier J.A. Calder. He proposed seven sites including some close to downtown and others

close to the former territorial government buildings on Dewdney Avenue to the west. His cabinet colleagues accepted his recommendation to buy 168 acres known as the Old Sinton Property, owned by the McCallum Hill Co. The asking price was $108,000; the purchase price was $96,250. The choice stirred controversy. People questioned the decision to build in an isolated spot where the cost of constructing a bridge had to also be considered. Early photographs show just how

isolated the building was, standing alone with not a tree in sight. In his book, Building for the Future, a photo journal of Saskatchewan’s Legislative Building, former legislative clerk and lieutenant-governor Gordon Barnhart quoted Calder’s rationale: “It lies high and if the buildings were erected there they would face the city and at the same time overlook the reservoir. The grounds could easily be beautified, prison labour being available for this purpose. Water and sewage connections could easily be made at

comparatively small cost. While at first I thought the property too far from the centre of the city, upon examination, I found it just as close as the Dewdney properties. “Besides, in deciding the question of a site, the fact must be borne in mind that at an early date, there is every likelihood that we will have a street car service.” Scott promised the building would be surrounded by a park and agreed to include the city’s Town Park, south of present-day College Avenue, in the landscaping plan, Barnhart wrote. The eventual creation of Wascana Park ensured the legislative building would never be swallowed by the city, and the street car service materialized even before construction was complete. The $1.75 million construction cost was about twice the budgeted estimate. Many of the individual renovation projects over the years, including one to keep it from sinking, have cost more than that, and replacing the building today would cost $200 million. Renovations have kept the building modern and comfortable, but heritage features such as the windows, fireplaces and original furniture remain. To mark this 100th anniversary, events such as an artists-in-residence program are exploring the history and significance of the building. A time capsule placed in the cornerstone laid by governor general Earl Grey on Oct. 4, 1909, was opened in December 2011 to reveal items of the day. A party is planned for October, and a new time capsule will replace the old.


Create feeling of security to help son recover from abuse SPEAKING OF LIFE



At a meeting with social services last week, my husband and I were told that one of our nephews likely sexually abused our five-year- old son. Our son later confirmed this. Social services were helpful and encouraged us to protect our son as much as possible, to not let him visit with the other family and to get coun-

selling for him and us. I understand the need to protect our child, but I am not sure that is going to fix the wrongs that have been done to him. We are open to any suggestions you might have for us. Follow the advice from social services and get both yourselves and your son into counselling as quickly as possible. This situation has been traumatizing and may influence your family for many years to come. Hopefully, a sensitive counsellor will help you and your family resolve this relatively quickly and let all of you get back to enjoying time with your son. You do not want to let the trauma distract you from time with your family.


I doubt you will be much help to your son unless you deal with the guilt that is likely to jump into your own mental well being. Often, parents feel responsible for what has happened to their children and spend a great deal of time punishing themselves, whipping their self esteem into a monument of personal inadequacy. This is not necessary. Sexual predators, regardless of their ages, have mastered the fine art of deception and generally fortify their deception with horrific threats to the children they have victimized. The probability that you could have done much at the time to protect your child is low. The difficult task is what happens now. You need to give your child a sense that the environment in which

he is living is safer than it has ever been. You get that message to your child by reinforcing and fortifying the structure you have built for your family in your home. Bedtimes and mealtimes need to be regulated. Letting your son off the hook because he has been traumatized and not turning off the television set at his usual bedtime might give him a moment of relief but it also breeds insecurity into your home, which is exactly what he does not need at this time. If you do not have regular family meetings or times during the day when he has your uninterrupted attention, make sure that you make them happen. These are not times for you to reinforce teaching opportunities. These are his times and he

should be allowed to say whatever it is he needs to say. With any luck, he will talk about his bad experiences with his cousin, but he may not. If he does not want to talk during his special moment, at least give him the honour of sitting in silence with him for the designated times. I also suggest that you read everything you can about what to expect from children five to 10 years old. Don’t let his misguided cousin distract either you or your child from taking full advantage of what is an important time in his personal development.

Co-operative model builds better world: FCL leader People power | FCL president says serving members is the priority BY RON FRIESEN FREELANCE WRITER

The old-timers in Marquette, Man., used to say they could tell if their barrels of oil came from the local cooperative or another supplier. They claimed the co-op barrels were heavier because they were always full to the brim, while sometimes the others were not. “They never said the competition was lightening up the barrels, but they said the co-op barrels were always fuller,” said Glen Tully, whose grandfather, Walter Tully, helped found the Marquette co-op in the mid-1940s. True or not, the story reflects the traditional goal of cooperatives: to serve members and meet their needs. “Co-operatives exist for no other reason than to provide benefits to their members,” said Tully, president of Federated Co-operatives Ltd., the largest non-financial co-op in Canada. Tully said co-operatives provide a lifeline to rural communities, where large companies are reluctant to locate. The only grocery store, gas bar or hardware business in many western Canadian small towns is often a local co-op, he added. A credit union is the only financial service provider in 1,000 small communities in Canada, according to the Canadian Co-operative Association. “Lots of times, products and services would be unavailable, or too expensive, unless you grouped together and formed a co-op to get service in your community,” said Tully, who grew up on a grain and dairy farm in south-central Manitoba and got an early start in co-op leadership. He was elected a director of the Marquette Consumers Co-operative in 1984 and served as co-op president from 1988 to 2005. Tully describes his career as having

Tully was joined by his wife, Judy. a snowball effect. He attended further meetings, went to training sessions and learned more about the co-operative system. Someone suggested he let his name stand for FCL director. He did and was elected. After working his way up the ranks, Tully became FCL president in 2005. Along the way, he served as president of the Canadian Co-operative Association from 2001 to 2004. In 2005, he was the recipient of the Manitoba Distinguished Co-operator Award. Four years later, Tully received a CCA achievement award. He and his wife Judy now live in Saskatoon, where FCL is headquartered. Tully said co-operatives helped build Western Canada. “There was a need, people got together, described their need and found a way to fix it through the cooperative model.” Today, Tully believes the consumer co-operative movement has matured. Retail co-ops are amalgamat-

ing into fewer and larger ones. Canada has 9,000 co-ops, including credit unions, with a total membership of 18 million and overall assets of $370 billion. However, Tully sees opportunities for other types of co-ops, especially in social services, such as child care, elder care, rental housing, nursing homes and funeral services. Such co-ops are better able to meet clients’ needs than private companies because they are “value-based” with a mandate to serve, said Donna Balkan, CCA’s communications manager in Ottawa. “Co-ops have an objective above and beyond just making a profit,” Balkan said. Tully agreed. “At the end of the day, co-operatives work by people coming together.” The United Nations has declared 2012 as the International Year of Cooperatives, with the theme being “Co-operative Enterprises Build a Better World.”

Phyllis Shand and her research group provide advice and training for the community and industry groups.

Making an Impact – Meat Science Benefits Industry and Public Research at the College of Agriculture and Bioresources has wideranging benefits for industry and the public. Take the work of Phyllis Shand and her research group in meat science in the Department of Food and Bioproduct Sciences, who assist the community through advice, facilities and training. When meat companies need troubleshooting advice, they often approach Shand. “They might be having a difficulty with a product not having the shelf life they expected,” she says, “or it may not have the correct texture.” College expertise also comes in handy when industry-wide challenges arise. “When the borders became closed during the BSE crisis,” Shand says, “we had a larger supply of mature cattle in the country.” In collaboration with industry and government, “we looked at adding value to tougher meat cuts.” The food and meat sciences pilot plant is a valuable resource for Saskatchewan processors. “I can’t say enough about the college,” says Paul Rogers, former Product Development Manager of SJ Irvine Fine Foods, which has used the pilot plant to evaluate new products and techniques. “It’s an awesome facility,” he enthuses. “The equipment and personnel are top-notch.” “The college, particularly Dr. Shand and her group, have been very generous,” he says, “offering the facility for our workshops during [the Saskatchewan Meat Processors’ Association] annual convention.” Shand has also worked extensively with the Saskatchewan Food Industry Development Centre, a provincially funded non-profit facility. As a highlight of that relationship, Shand cites the codesigning of a course for public health inspectors. Other activities have included collaborations in new product development and applied research. Even on an informal basis, meat science at the college benefits the public. “On occasion,” says Shand, “I’ll get questions from consumers: ‘I boiled my chicken and it’s turned green—what’s going on?’ That kind of thing.” Whether through major collaborations or simply by answering an anxious phone call, Shand and the Meat Sciences group are making a lasting impact on the community.

Near death on the farm One man’s story of survival after contacting a power line

“One day, without you even knowing, in the blink of an eye, you have an injury that could have been fatal and life-changing.” – Curtis Weber

Curtis Weber doesn’t regret losing part of his right arm and left leg. It’s been 12 years since a farm incident changed his life. He says if he could relive the day there’s only one thing he would change – his awareness of workplace safety. On July 29, 1999, a 17-year-old Weber showed up for his third day on the job building grain bins near his hometown of Battleford. Having grown up building bins with his father, it was something he knew well. “We were setting up bins just out by Blaine Lake,” he says. “We were in the process of moving a hopper bottom underneath a power line and the operator didn’t put the crane down far enough and he backed into a power line.” Standing on the ground nearby, Weber was hit with 14,400 volts of electricity three separate times. He was brought to the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon where he stayed in intensive care in a coma for six weeks, followed by more than four months’ recovery in hospital. “My parents and family were told that for the first three nights, I wasn’t gonna come out of it. My kidneys failed. They had shut down. They said everything else was shutting down after that.” “They kind of threw the book at me as far as injuries were gonna go,” he says. Weber kept a positive attitude and had a miraculous recovery. While he lost body parts to the shock, he never lost his zest for life. After more than 40 operations over the course of five years, he was back doing everything


he did before his injuries: hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, quadding and playing sports. He confesses workplace safety on or off the farm was never a main concern before the incident. “You’re not invincible. It kinda happened because I was one of those kids that had that attitude going. “You have a lot of close calls with accidents, things happening in your personal life and nothing serious ever happens. And then one day, without you even knowing, in the blink of an eye, you have an injury that could have been fatal and life-changing,” says Weber.

Changed in the blink of an eye Today, Weber is a spokesperson/trainer for the Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB). He admits motivational speaking was never at the top of his list of career choices, but he loves the job. Weber travels around the province telling others about his personal journey following his injury as a teenager. He doesn’t bring much with him, just a PowerPoint presentation and a hard-hitting message – you’re not invincible. Thousands of kilometers on his company car and stacks of hotel and motel receipts are evidence he’s told his story many times. In 2010, he spoke to just under 12,000 people including 6,000 youth. He never gets tired of sharing his story. Weber will do anything to prevent an injury.

It didn’t have to happen Weber knows his injuries were avoidable. And that’s one of SaskPower’s main beliefs when it comes to safety – all incidents are preventable. “I could have prevented it from happening to myself,” he says. At the time, he knew moving bins with a crane was unsafe and a waste of time. “When I worked for dad we used to drag hopper bottoms around with a work truck all the time,” he says. “If I could go back, obviously I’d say, ‘Hey, you know there’s a safe way to do this and it’s easier.’” He can’t stress the importance of speaking up enough. Young people aged 15 to 24 are at higher risk of having an injury because they’re inexperienced and are often afraid to ask questions. If he could go back in time, Weber would speak up and make safety a priority.

Safe doesn’t have to be a four-letter word Weber wants to ensure everyone goes home safely at the end of the day. SaskPower shares Weber’s concern for safety. Glenda Barton, SaskPower Chief Safety Officer, stresses everyone is responsible for staying safe and taking personal action by planning ahead and noting any electrical hazards and risks before starting any work. “We strongly encourage farmers to take a few moments for safety before starting any work,” Barton says. “Locate all overhead power lines, plan your work


Plan safety on the farm

to stay well clear of lines, and always lower your equipment before moving it – these are some simple things farmers can do to stay safe.” Weber echoes Barton’s comments, and notes safety isn’t always an easy thing to talk about. “I know a lot of times safety’s kind of been looked at as not a real popular thing amongst people,” says Weber, adding that some people think it’s a waste of time and kids just laugh about it. But in a split second, people can be seriously injured or killed if they don’t respect the dangers of working around power lines. In Saskatchewan, safety is starting to improve because people are realizing its importance. But it’s still something that needs work, Weber says. “We have the second highest workplace injury rate in the country so it’s something that I think we really want to address.” Weber adds that injuries can take a financial toll too. Many small businesses go under when the owner is seriously injured. Farms are no exception.

Going the extra mile SaskPower believes part of farm safety includes awareness of one’s surroundings. Hazard identification prior to work is one of the most important steps in preventing an injury. Knowing where power lines are located is critical, but Weber explains there are other factors that can’t be predicted. Changes to a person’s routine could also prove deadly when working around power lines. “Maybe it’s a new employee that does something differently and you’re not aware of it and all of a sudden an incident or an injury occurs because of something you’re not aware of,” says Weber. Once the hazard has been identified, Weber and SaskPower say you have to ensure both your own safety and that of others is not at risk. “In my example, I know after talking with some of my co-workers once I came out of the hospital, we were worried about that power line,” remembers Weber. He said he and his coworkers identified the power line immediately and knew that working near it would be a hazard. “But we didn’t go the extra mile saying ‘okay,

“I could have prevented it from happening to myself.”

what are we gonna do about that hazard that we just identified from becoming an injury?’,” Weber adds. Stopping at identifying the hazard is where most people go wrong when it comes to their safety practices, says Weber. He adds while many people might plan for safety, they often don’t realize what can happen if the plan isn’t right for the working environment. SaskPower stresses that all power facilities and equipment are dangerous, and should be treated with respect, not just power lines.

Often, there are no safety meetings on the farm. It’s a rough and tough, deadline-oriented business. But, failing to incorporate safety into day-to-day activities can prove fatal. “I think that farming is an industry where typically it’s a family-run business and sometimes those situations can be dangerous,” says Weber. “There’s a lot of pressure on the family. That’s their livelihood.” “I’ve talked to a lot of farm kids in schools where they say, ‘You know, we don’t practice safety very well because we’re always in a rush to get the crops off’ and this and that.” Weber says stepping back to look at safety could mean the difference between a safe day on the farm or not. Parents and their children need to think about the consequences of their actions before they perform a task, evaluate the risks involved and decide whether it’s something they should be doing or find an alternate way of doing it. It should be in the forefront of any farm family’s mind all the time, not just when they hear about an injury or death. “Slow down and be even more aware of the dangers there because we all know there’s no shortage of hazards when you’re a kid growing up on the farm,” he says. “I think probably the biggest factor in farm incidents is like what happened to us that day. You’re rushing to get a job done. You’re in a hurry. You need to get a job done,” says Weber. Getting the message out about farm safety planning isn’t easy. SaskPower knows the message is best received when it comes from loved ones – like the farm kid who wants their dad to come home safely at night, or the mom and dad who pray their teenage son or daughter will leave the fields safely at the end of each long day. Weber’s greatest job satisfaction is when students talk to him after a presentation and tell him they are going to do something on the farm or at work differently. Sometimes students remember him from a previous school visit, and they tell him that they changed how they did something after hearing him speak. “You know you got through to some people and you can potentially save somebody’s life or save them from a serious injury,” says Weber.

Look up and live. Farming is dangerous business — especially when you’re moving large equipment or relocating grain bins. Carefully assess the risks and hazards before you start. Locate all overhead power lines and plan to stay well clear. Always lower equipment before you move it. It’s a busy time of year. Don’t let a serious injury slow you down — or worse. Talk to your family, and anyone else working on your farm, about staying safe around electricity.





ALBERTA SOUTH Good harvest weather continued last week, and half to three-quarters of the crop is now in the bin. Cereal yields are about 15 percent below average in the Enchant area, but numerous above average winter wheat yields have been reported. Results from initial canola harvest are disappointing and in general about 15 percent lower than last year. Problems have been reported from wind displacing canola swaths, which will add difficulty to harvest. CENTRAL Harvest is one-third complete. Moisture has delayed progress in the Three Hills and Trochu regions, where it is about 25 percent done, but further east progress has reached half to three-quarters

completion. Barley yields are 60 to 70 bushels per acre, with lighter weights and higher protein levels. Wheat ranges from 35 to 70. Some ergot has been reported but it’s not as bad as last year. Protein levels are good. Canola harvest has barely begun but early yields are 25 to 30 bu. Per acre. Disease pressure from aster yellows and sclerotinia appear to have taken a toll. Moisture conditions are generally good but producers will be looking for rain once harvest is complete. NORTHWEST Harvest is 20 percent complete overall, with wheat at 50 percent, barley at 20 percent and canola at five percent. Yields are about 40 bu. per acre for hard red spring, 60 to 90 for Canadian Prairie Spring, 60 to 100 for barley and 30 to 50 for canola. Yields are generally 15 percent lower than last year, which was an above aver-

age year. Good harvest weather was in the forecast late last week. Soil moisture is generally good in the region. NORTHEAST Rain stalled harvest last week but the five-day forecast for last weekend and into this week was conducive to harvest. Pea harvest is complete. Most cereal crops have been swathed and yields look promising. Canola harvest is in early stages. Yields have been severely affected by disease and insects, including aster yellows, sclerotinia, blackleg and bertha armyworm. Bertha damage is spotty but severe in some fields. Canola yields in the Lashburn area are reported at 20 to 25 bu. per acre, and slightly higher in the Paradise Valley area at 20 to 25 bu. per acre. Soil moisture is adequate or above adequate in most of the region.

PEACE Harvest is more than 50 percent complete. Peas and winter wheat are 95 percent done, and spring wheat is 75 percent complete. Canola harvest is now starting, with 10 to 15 percent combined. Spring wheat yields are 40 to 45 bushels per acre, peas 25 to 30 bu. per acre, winter wheat 60 to 65 and early canola 25 to 30. Summer heat that caused flower blast appears to be the main culprit in reduced canola yields, along with lygus and bertha armyworm. Good harvest weather was reported late last week, and resulting progress should allow farmers to compete fall work in timely fashion. Soil moisture is low. Winter wheat seeding is on hold awaiting harvest completion and hopefully rain.

MANITOBA SOUTHWEST Dry, sunny weather has aided harvest progress. Combining of spring wheat is basically complete with yields of 40 to 50 bushels per acre and high protein levels. Barley yields are around 40 bu. per acre, but bushel weights are lighter than normal. Sunflower crops look good and harvest will begin in a couple of

NEWS weeks. Rain is needed to invigorate pastures and replenish dugouts in the region. CENTRAL Soybean harvest is underway, and producers are reporting yields of 25 to 30 bu. per acre. Many bean fields have turned brown or are close to maturity. The majority of producers will begin combining by the middle of the month. Potato digging continues and yields are reported as above average. Edible bean growers are also reporting decent yields. Some pinto bean fields have generated 2,000 pounds per acre. Navies and blacks are yielding as high as 2,500 lb. per acre.

NORTHWEST Most of the canola crop has been combined. Yields are averaging 25 to 27 bu. per acre, with some fields producing 50 bu. per acre. Spring wheat is averaging 45 to 50 bu. per acre in the region. Oat yields are averaging 85 to 90 bu. per acre. Growers still have hemp, soybeans, flax and corn to harvest. Annual crops are producing an ample amount of good quality straw. Pasture regrowth has slowed and rain is needed. EASTERN Winter wheat seeding is progressing rapidly. Acres across the province are expected to increase, thanks to an early harvest of spring crops and strong prices. Winter feed supply remains a concern in the region. Hay supply is rated at 25 to 50 percent of adequate. Feed grain is at 25 to 80

percent adequate. Pasture is rated at poor to very poor. Cattle producers in the southeast have been feeding animals for a few weeks. Dugouts are drying up and producers are hauling water for their livestock. INTERLAKE Canola and spring cereal harvest is basically complete, except for crops around Arborg and Riverton, where wet fields have slowed progress. Corn silage harvest is progressing in the south Interlake. Pasture conditions vary across the region, but most pastures should carry livestock into the fall.

SASKATCHEWAN Harvest is ahead of schedule in Saskatchewan, where 38 percent of the crop has been combined compared to the five-year average of 26 percent. Another one-third of the crop is swathed. Progress ranges from five percent combined for flax to 99 percent for winter wheat. Canola is 31 percent combined, while spring wheat was at 24 percent as of Sept. 3. Many regions are reporting below average yields.


SOUTH Harvest is progressing rapidly in the south where 56 percent of the crop has been combined in the southeast, up from 32 percent the previous week, and 69 percent in the southwest, up from 49 percent. Most growers are disappointed with yields, which have been lowered by a combination of flooding, disease, insects and heat stress. Spring wheat is expected to average 35 bushels per acre in the southeast and 32 bu. in the southwest. Canola is expected to yield 26 to 27 bu. per acre across the south. Crop quality may be downgraded because of ergot, fusarium, frost, wheat midge damage and green kernels. Topsoil moisture on cropland is rated 61 percent short and 22 percent very short in the southwest. CENTRAL Harvest advanced nicely in the east-central part of the province where 28 percent of the crop is in the bin, up from 10 percent the previous week. Strong winds, rain and hail delayed harvest in some parts of the west-central region where 23 percent of the crop has been combined,


up from eight percent. Yields range from below average to very poor right across the central portion of the province. Spring wheat is averaging 31 to 32 bu. per acre, while canola is in the 24 to 27 bu. range. Quality could be an issue. Some barley is coming off lighter than normal in the east-central region and many canola crops in the westcentral region are not maturing and have high green seed counts. Growers are optimistic that later seeded crops will yield better than earlier seeded crops. NORTH Harvest is progressing slowly in the north because of wet field conditions and slowly maturing crops. Twelve to 14 percent of the crop has been combined compared to four to five percent the previous week. However, another 55 percent is swathed or ready to straight combine. Yields range from below average to very poor, with spring wheat averaging 35 to 39 bu. per acre and canola 27 to 30. Quality is a concern with high green counts in canola and cereal crops, light barley crops and bleaching and staining in cereals.




Although work is continuing on establishing a wheat and barley commission in Saskatchewan, it could still be more than a year before wheat, like this crop seen through a fish-eye lens on the Pady farm near Edenwold, Sask., would have an up and running commission, says the president of the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan. | CHERYL PADY PHOTO WHEAT, BARLEY COMMISSION | PRODUCT PROMOTION

Barley, wheat commissions still ways off: APAS


Work is continuing to establish new wheat and barley commissions in Saskatchewan. Cory Kolt, media relations officer with Saskatchewan Agriculture, said department officials will be making an announcement about the proposed commissions in the near future. “The ministry at this point is not in a position to comment further but we do expect to be ready very soon,” Kolt said in late August. Sources close to the process say the province is expected to announce the formation of two steering commit-

tees — one for wheat and one for barley. Each steering committee is expected to consist of five members, with representatives from farm organizations, commodity groups and government. The steering committees will consult with Saskatchewan farmers, secure grower support and promote the idea of establishing permanent wheat and barley commissions in the province. The steering committees will also establish bylaws and operating procedures for the commissions, set check-off rates and serve as interim board members until commission elections can be held.

Work to establish a provincial wheat commission began earlier this year when the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan passed a resolution in March proposing that APAS spearhead efforts to establish a new commission. APAS members felt that legislative changes affecting CWB would leave a void in wheat research, grain quality, market development, product branding and farmer advocacy. The formation of a provincial wheat

commission was intended to address these concerns and ensure that organizations such as the Western Grains Research Foundation and the Canadian International Grains Institute had stable funding. Since then, the province has stepped in to spearhead the efforts. Norm Hall, president of APAS, said his organization is waiting for the province to get the ball rolling. After the province announces its plans, it could take another year or

two to establish permanent commissions, he said. “Back in February or March, I was saying it would take 18 months to 30 months to get things going,” Hall said. “At this point, I would say it will take an absolute minimum of 12 months, if not a full 24 months, until things are up and running.” Hall said the new commissions would most likely begin collecting producer levies at the beginning of the 2013-14 or 2014-15 crop year.

Quality updates now filed earlier Canadian Grain Commission | Weekly updates on the quality and protein level of spring wheat and durum will be filed as they are harvested BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Beginning this month, the western Canadian grain industry will receive weekly updates on the quality of this year’s new wheat crop. The Canadian Grain Commission will provide weekly information on the quality and protein content of red spring and durum wheat crops as they are harvested. The information will be collected through the commission’s Harvest Sample Program and updated every Monday, provided an adequate number of samples have been submitted. Information on red spring wheat will be divided into 10 production regions. Data on durum will be divided into four regions. Additional data, including test weight, falling number and ash content, will also be provided after samples have been collected and analyzed. In previous years, the grain commission did not begin releasing data on the quality of Western Canada’s wheat crops until October or November. The early release will allow the grain industry to assess crop quality in a more timely fashion, the CGC said. “We used to start releasing protein content data from the red spring and amber durum harvest in Western Canada in October and released other quality parameters in November,” said chief commissioner Elwin Hermanson. “In response to the open market for wheat, we are making all the preliminary data for each crop region available to everyone to use as they wish.” Twylla McKendry, CGC’s program manager of analytical services, said releasing grain quality data earlier in

the year will help grain companies market this year’s crop and give them a better idea of the type of wheat being harvested. “We thought this might benefit the industry by doing it this way,” McKendry said. “This should give us an earlier indication of what localized quality is.” McKendry said the commission is considering similar changes for other crop types, including oilseeds and pulses, but will likely wait for industry feedback before making any decisions. “After we do this exercise, we’re going to be asking for feedback at the end of the year from industry to see if there’s something we could do … better,” she said. As of last week, the CGC had released preliminary data from two crop regions in Manitoba. Protein content for red spring wheat harvested in southeastern and southwestern Manitoba was averaging 13.9 percent and 14.3 percent respectively based on early sample returns. Industry analysts have suggested that protein content in the Manitoba red spring wheat crop looks to be higher than normal. McKendry said Sept. 5 the CGC had analyzed a small number of samples, but it is still early to make definitive conclusions about overall protein content of this year’s crop. As of Sept. 4, Manitoba’s cereal harvest was 85 to 100 percent complete, according to the provincial agriculture department’s weekly crop report. Weekly wheat quality updates from the CGC harvest sample program can be viewed online at OblVRW or by visiting the commission’s website at www.grainscanada. and clicking on the link for grain quality.

Global warming puts summer crops at risk: study Impact on corn examined | Hotter temperatures and less rain will increase the need for more drought tolerant crop varieties BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Scientists have speculated that rising carbon dioxide, which is associated with climate change, could potentially boost crop yields in the future. However, U.S. Department of Agriculture researchers in Colorado have determined that the negative effects of rising temperatures outweigh the potential benefits of increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Laj Ahuja, a research leader with the USDA Agricultural Research Service in Fort Collins, Colorado, concluded that dryland corn yields in the state could decline by 50 percent by 2100 because of rising global temperatures. Under an average climate change scenario for Colorado, in which summer temperatures rise 4.3 degrees by 2100, Ahuja estimated dryland corn yields would drop from a baseline of 73 bushels per acre to 49 bu. per acre in 2100. “We looked at the effect of the precipitation change, the carbon dioxide change, temperature change and then combined all three factors,” Ahuja said. “For corn, we definitely saw a decrease in yield.” To estimate the impact of global warming on yield, Ahuja and his fellow scientists used Colorado Water Conservation Board projections on climate change, which represents a synthesis of 16 global climate change models and multiple climate projections for the state. They then used yield data on three common dryland crop rotations in Colorado: winter wheat-fallow, wheat-corn-fallow and wheat-cornmillet. Researchers had 15 to 17 years of yield data on the three rotations, which helped them account for weather variability in the future. “We started out with 17 base years and each year (had) different weather conditions,” Ahuja said. “Then we superimposed the climate change (model) on each of those 17 years. So in the future (the) annual variation was (accounted for).” The scientists ran the model, generated yield data for 2025, 2050, 2075 and 2100 and found that winter wheat was less susceptible to climate change than millet and corn. Using precipitation projections for Colorado as a guide, the researchers assumed annual rainfall would remain the same in the future. However, they estimated that less rain would fall in the spring and summer and more precipitation would occur in the fall and winter. “Remember it (is) higher temperature and lower precip during the spring and summer. That affects corn

IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE A USDA study on climate change estimated its impact on corn, wheat and millet yields. This estimate takes into account forecasted temperature increase, decrease in spring-summer rainfall and elevated levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

more. And (more) carbon dioxide does not benefit corn,” Ahuja said. “For these reasons, the summer crops are more at risk than the winter wheat. That’s what our general finding was.” It’s not surprising that hot and dry conditions restrict yields, but the study represent a red flag about future growing conditions in North America. Even though the computer models were based on climate change in Colorado and the resulting decline in yields for dryland crops in the region, the scientists noted the model could be used to assess climate change effects on any cropping system. “Depending on where people sit politically, on their belief or disbelief of climate change, this type of work is helpful (for) how you deal with extremes,” said Tim Green, an agricultural engineer with the USDA in Fort Collins and one of the study’s authors. The scientists found that no-tillage offsets some of the impacts of climate change. When they compared a notill winter wheat-fallow rotation to a conventionally tilled winter wheatfallow, no-till maintained higher yields as atmospheric temperatures increased. “Climate change and drought tolerance are essentially the same problem,” Green said. “No-till is obviously one way to help preserve water in the soil.” Ahuja remains hopeful that plant breeders will develop varieties to counter the detrimental affects of climate change. “My thinking is that geneticists can come up with varieties that can tolerate a little bit higher temperatures and have higher heat unit requirements.” As well, he said it’s likely that varieties will shift northward as the planet heats up. “So you can bring varieties from the south, or from southern Colorado to central and northern Colorado, and they will do better in future years.”

Winter wheat popularity expected to continue Comparable to spring wheat prices | In some areas, winter wheat generated higher yields than spring wheat BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Some Manitoba farmers planted winter wheat for the first time last year into fields unseeded due to spring flooding, but higher yields and good prices may attract more growers.

Solid yields, an early harvest and the narrow price spread with spring wheat should help winter wheat hold onto its acreage in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, says a grower from Birtle, Man. “I don’t know if we’ll have more acres than last year … but I would anticipate it would be similar,” said Garth Butcher, who expects to plant 500 acres of winter wheat on his 3,000 acre farm. Prairie producers harvested more than 1.2 million acres of winter wheat this summer, with 1.1 million acres in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The acreage was more than double the 575,000 acres recorded in 2011. Many farmers seeded the crop into unplanted fields because of extensive spring flooding in Manitoba and Saskatchewan last year, but winter wheat advocates hope to hang onto those growers and the acreage gains. “I don’t think it was a stop gap. I think the people that tried it are going to keep going (with it),” said Winter Cereals Canada executive director Jake Davidson from his office near Minnedosa, Man. “(The) Hutterite colonies are out seeding winter wheat. I’ve got some down the road from me that is already out of the ground.” Traditional winter wheat producers will continue to grow the crop, but a couple of factors will determine if new growers join the club. For one, producers will compare spring wheat yields to winter wheat yields when deciding between the two crops, Butcher said. Winter wheat yields were good this year around Birtle at 70 bu. per acre, he added. In comparison, spring wheat yields were 50 to 55 bu. an acre, which may impact a growers’ decision, Butcher said. Across Manitoba, winter wheat yields were slightly above average, ranging from 55 to 100 bu. with an average of 70 bu., Davidson said. “I heard a lot of 70s and 80s.” Another factor is the price spread between winter and spring wheat. As of early September, spring wheat o n t h e Mi n n e a p o l i s G ra i n E xchange was trading at $9.35 per bu.

for the December 2012 futures contract, while a December contract for Chicago Board of Trade wheat, or soft wheat, was trading at $8.74 per bu. Spring wheat has previously traded at a premium of $1.50 a bushel over winter wheat, but Greg Kostal of Kostal Ag Consulting in Winnipeg said that premium will likely narrow in coming years. Analysts attribute this summer’s tight gap between hard and soft wheat to the drought in the U.S. Midwest and its impact on the corn crop. As a result, demand has pulled up the value of soft wheat because it is a replacement feed for corn. While corn represents a substantial factor behind the tight wheat spread, the post-CWB era is also affecting the market in Canada, Kostal said. The CWB monopoly in Western Canada encouraged the planting of high protein varieties and fostered a price premium for quality. However, Kostal said the hard wheat premium will likely shrink in the open market because of increased north-south trade. As a result, it’s possible Canadian growers will shift to winter wheat because it generates higher yields, he said. “All other variables being equal, include the agronomic risks, over time tighter spreads between spring wheat and other wheat classes will gravitate more (acres) to the winter wheat or the high yielding CPS (wheat).” In the short term, growers may want to plant winter wheat this fall to take advantage of the feed shortage in North America. Winter wheat planted now will be harvested next summer so prices should be based on old crop demand, Kostal said. “You’ve got more confidence … that you would have an outlet to market winter wheat in July, at a high old crop corn price substitute, before the corn crop is harvested.”


Feds support antibiotic alternative SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Recently announced federal funding will support a Saskatoon-based company researching substitutes for antibiotics in livestock feed. A $101,000 contribution will assist Prairie Plant Systems as it develops technologies to replace antibiotics using plants like mustard seeds. The company believes it can use feed supplements to stimulate an animal’s immune system to resist infection, improving herd health and reducing losses and costs for live stock and poultry producers. “This is the first step in finding

alternatives to the use of antibiotics in animal feed,” said Brent Zettle, chief executive officer of Prairie Plant Systems, in a media release. “The long-term goal of our research can have benefits for farmers and consumers alike.” The project is funded under the Agricultural Innovation program, which assists the development and commercialization of new products, technologies and processes. Prairie Plant Systems, a private biotechnology company, is also known for its production of medicinal marijuana for Health Canada.

Perfect ditches in half the time. The Wolverine scrapes and spreads the soil in a single operation, creating and maintaining ditches faster and more efficiently than a scraper.

“I really enjoy ditching with the Wolverine. I get the job done quicker and make nicer ditches than with our scraper – and no piles to be bothered with. It’s the only way to go!” -Keith Greschner, Manning, Alberta

California plant promises better training and monitoring to avoid mistreatment of animals SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) — A slaughterhouse in California’s central agricultural heartland was allowed to reopen after agreeing to improve its handling of animals following a graphic video that showed cows being mistreated there, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said. The USDA suspended operations at the Central Valley Meat Company in early August after animal rights activists gave it a video showing cows at the facility flailing wildly as they were dragged by one leg on a conveyor belt on their way to be slaughtered. “The company has committed to a number of corrective actions including additional humane handling training for employees and safeguards to ensure that only ambulatory animals are processed,” an agency spokesperson said in an e-mail. The plant was allowed to resume operations as of Aug. 27, although an investigation into possible food safety violations is continuing. The company still is suspended from supplying meat to federal food programs. The video, published online by activist group Compassion Over Killing, shows lame, sick former dairy cows being shot in the head multiple times and struggling before they die. In one portion of the video, a worker stands on a cow’s nostrils to kill it after the cow is shot in the head. An undercover activist shot the video at the farm in June and July, the animal rights group said. Central Valley Meat Company said the closure of its facility caused economic hardship for the 450 people that work at the family-run plant. “We have worked closely with both inspectors and industry experts while developing our USDA-approved action plan,” the company said in an e-mailed statement. “As a result, Central Valley Meat will provide better training for our workers, better monitoring of our facilities, and more frequent third-party audits of our operations.” The company said at the time of its suspension that it had retained an outside animal welfare expert to conduct an internal investigation. In 2008, the Humane Society of the United States captured employees of a California meat-packing plant in Chino torturing cattle and processing the unfit animals for human consumption in a gruesome undercover videotape. That video’s release led to the record recall of nearly 65 million kilograms of meat by the Hallmark/ Westland Meat Packing Company.

Sask. premier makes trade promotion trip to Asia First time to Indonesia | Trip is also intended to deal with recurring trade irritants with the growing region BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Agricultural products and issues are on the agenda for premier Brad Wall and 25 Saskatchewan-based companies on a trade trip to Asia. Wall said Sept. 6 he intended to help open doors for the producers and sellers of canola, wheat and other products, but he also planned to address recurring trade irritants. The Sept. 8-17 trip includes stops in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Indonesia. China’s rapid growth means it requires more of what Saskatchewan has — potash and food. The country is a significant buyer of the province’s canola oil. Wall said trade between the two jurisdictions increased 100 percent last year, and most of that was driven by agriculture. “Yes, it’s potash and oil, but increasingly it’s agricultural (products),” he said. Saskatchewan exports to China were worth $1.7 billion in 2011. About 83 percent of that came from trade in potash, canola seed, canola oil and peas. Wall said the booming business didn’t mean he would shy away from raising issues, such as China banning Canadian canola over blackleg concerns. “We raise those issues and I think it helps,” he said of government involvement. “We’re increasingly aware that (irritants like that) are a process and not an event and we’re going to keep on top of it.” The trip to Indonesia will mark the first time a Saskatchewan premier has visited the country. While there he will meet with the ministries of trade and agriculture. Indonesia is now the province’s fifth largest export market. In 2011, exports of potash, wheat and semichemical wood pulp were worth $817 million. About half of Canadian exports to Indonesia were from Saskatchewan, and Wall said he would like to see that increase.

“It isn’t just fertilizer,” he said. “There’s been a huge increase in the tonnage of wheat.” The loss of the CWB export monopoly means there is a greater role for others to play in developing that mar-

ket, he said. Good government-togovernment relationships help. In Singapore, Wall will meet with representatives from Canpotex and its largest international customer, Wilmar International, as well as oth-

er agricultural companies. The organizations on the trade mission include Alliance Grain Traders, Saskatchewan Pulse Growers, Prairie West Terminal and Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership.

Seed treatments hot topic for corn growers, beekeepers New study in progress | Researchers examining whether seed coatings boost yields, kill bees BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Purdue University entomologist Christian Krupke is seeking an answer to a question that he believes scientists have ignored for too long: do seed treatments really protect corn crops from insects? Last year, Krupke and his colleagues conducted a pilot study in which they grew corn coated with an insecticide next to corn without a seed treatment. The experiment was done at only one site, but the results showed the seed treatment didn’t boost yield or provide additional insect protection. “It didn’t show a benefit,” said Krupke, who was raised in southern Ontario and took his undergraduate training at the University of Guelph. “Anytime you have one site, one year, you have to take it with a huge grain of salt … so this year we have three sites and it’s a larger, more rigorous study.” The results won’t be finalized until later this year or early in 2013, but corn growers and beekeepers in Ontario may be interested in the outcome because seed treatments became a hot issue this spring in the province. Hundreds of thousands of honeybees died in Ontario during the corn planting season in May, with some beekeepers losing 40 to 50 percent of their bees. There were probably 100 reports of piles of dead bees near hives this spring, said John Van Alten, president of the Ontario Beekeepers’ Association. Health Canada and the Ontario agriculture and environment ministries initiated an investigation into the bee deaths, and early results suggest that neonicotinoid seed treatments killed the bees. “The preliminary results on the samples that were sent in, I believe about 70 percent … that were tested for clothianidin, came back positive,” said Van Alten, who runs 1,500 hives and sells honey under a brand called Dutchman’s Gold near Hamilton, Ont. Krupke decided to examine the efficacy of seed treatments as part of an investigation into bee deaths at corn seeding time in Indiana. For several years, beekeepers in the state have found thousands of dead bees outside hives during planting season. In January, Krupke and Greg Hunt, a genetics professor and honeybee specialist at Purdue, published a paper in the journal PloS One that demonstrated a link between corn seeding and bee deaths. Their research showed that high concentrations of two insecticides, clothianidin, a Bayer Crop Science product, and thiamethoxam, a Syngenta insecticide, were present in the dust and exhaust of seeding equipment.

“We know that these insecticides are highly toxic to bees; we found them in each sample of dead and dying bees,” Krupke said, noting the coating rubs off when corn seeds bounce and grind against each other during seeding. “Whatever was on the seed was being exhausted into the environment. This material is so concentrated that even small amounts landing on flowering plants around a field can kill foragers or be transported to the hive in contaminated pollen.” In June, Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency announced it would re-evaluate the environmental risks of clothianidin, thiamethoxam and imidacloprid, another Bayer neonicotinoid. The products are sold under the names Po n c h o, C r u i s e r a n d Gau c h o, respectively. In particular, the PMRA wants to determine if these products, including seed treatments, are harmful to pollinators such as honeybees. The PMRA isn’t expected to publish the results of its assessment for several months, but corn growers in Ontario are paying close attention. In a news release in early September, Grain Farmers of Ontario said it’s too early to judge seed treatments, even though there might be a connection between the products and bee deaths. “Farmers must take everything into consideration before making any decisions in the situation going forward and we look forward to updates as they become available,” said director Kevin Armstrong. Krupke said it’s strange that growers are attached to these products because there is little evidence that insecticidal seed treatments protect corn and crop yields. “The argument is often put forward that farmers need these (tools) to grow corn. Well, that’s never been shown to be true,” he said. “There’s not good efficacy data to say that this is warranted at all.” Krupke pointed the finger at himself and other scientists. “It’s disgraceful that we have so little (data). We, as public sector researchers, have dropped the ball on this,” he said. “It’s not industry’s job to point out all the caveats associated with their products. They’re selling products.” Krupke hopes to fill the void with his trials on corn seed treatments at Purdue. Despite his misgivings, he noted that insecticidal seed treatments can be useful. There are regions in North America and times where the treatments can be useful to protect corn from insects. However, he also said it’s absurd to apply insecticidal seed treatments everywhere and every time. “I would say there’s a role for insecticidal seed treatments. But to say

An Ontario study showed seed treatments did not boost yields or provide greater insect protection but the insecticides are being blamed for bee deaths in Ontario and the U.S. Midwest. | SHARLENE BENNIE PHOTO that every single kernel requires them is not at all supported by any data.” Van Alten doesn’t want this to turn into a battle between honey producers and corn growers. Instead, he wants to work with producers, government agencies and industry on solutions.

“The biggest thing is we would like to see something developed that would keep that seed treatment … on the seed … so that it actually stays on the seed where it belongs,” he said. His association doesn’t have a position on the use of neonicotinoids, he added. However, he said the class of pesti-

cides does harm bees. “We know that if they end up in the beehive, or where the bee is foraging, it has disastrous results…. We definitely don’t want to see anything of this magnitude again. It’s hard to keep a beekeeping operation going when your bees are being poisoned.”

Insecticide link to bee deaths questioned BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Despite multiple incidents in Ontario, Minnesota, Illinois, New York and Indiana, where the death of bees at planting time has been linked to corn seed treatments, a spokesperson for Bayer Crop Science said there is little reason to point the finger at insecticides. “We think that there is very poor correlation between the treatment of corn with clothianidin and the bee kills,” said Alan Ayers, the company’s head of product stewardship in the United States. Ayers pointed to a recent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency decision regarding clothianidin, a Bayer neonicotinoid insecticide and seed treatment better known as Poncho. Earlier this year, beekeepers and environmental groups in the U.S. submitted a petition with more than a million signatures, asking the EPA to suspend the use of clothianidin because it poses an “imminent hazard” to bees. The EPA denied the request in July, noting there isn’t sufficient evidence proving clothianidin is significantly reducing bee populations in America. However, EPA scientists are reviewing neonicotinoids this year to determine if restrictions are needed to protect pollinators and the environment. Purdue University entomologist Christian Krupke, who has raised q u e s t i o n s a b o u t t h e t h re a t o f neonicotinoids to bees, also said that nearly all of the corn acres in North America are grown with treated seed, even though there is little evidence of efficacy. When asked if there are peerreviewed studies confirming that seed treatments boost yield, Ayers offered data but did not refer to a particular study. “If you look at one of our leading seed treatment products, clothianidin, when you look across a lot of data, we can see an increase in corn yields of about six to 14 bushels per acre,” he said. “I think some of those (figures) are based on side by side treatments. But to say all of them, we would have to check.” Regarding the argument that insecticides should be used only when pests reach an economic level, Ayers said it’s tough to scout for soil borne pests. He also said the debate has raged for decades over preventive treatments versus on-demand applications, but producers have clearly chosen prevention. “It (seed treatment) has really succeeded because it’s the most efficient, effective and productive way,” he said. “It just depends on who you talk to in the scientific world. These (seed treatments) are probably one of the most effective and efficient ways of meeting IPM (Integrated Pest Management) goals.”

Grain handler buys land in Sask.


Toronto based | The company is considering development opportunities BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A Toronto company that owns grain handling facilities in Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Wyoming, New York and Ontario is accumulating land near the Canada-U.S. border near Northgate, Sask. However, company officials are sharing few details about their plans in the area. Jason Gould, chief financial officer of Ceres Global Ag Corp., confirmed last week that Corus Land Holdings, an affiliated company, has been buying land in the Northgate area but he declined to say how much land has been acquired or what the company plans to use it for. Ceres, a public company whose shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange, also owns 100 percent of Riverland Ag Corp., a Minneapolisbased grain storage business that operates 15 grain storage facilities in Canada and the United States and has total storage capacity of 55 million bushels. “I will confirm that we’ve bought some land in the area and are considering development opportunities,” Gould said. “But at this time, we haven’t gotten to the point where any kind of definitive decisions (have been) made

around what that will be…. Unfortunately, I can’t really comment on much more than that.” Earlier this year, council members from the Rural Municipality of Enniskillin, which includes the hamlet of Northgate, approved a motion to sell Corus a block of land owned by the RM. According to local reports, the RM agreed to sell close to 170 lots in the hamlet for approximately $120,000. Municipal officials said Corus was interested in buying the land so it could build a grain loading facility in the area. As of last week, however, the company had not applied for a development permit. “When they bought Northgate from us, they said it was for a grain handling facility,” said one municipal official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

“They didn’t … (specify the size of the proposed) grain handling facility … but we are working under the assumption that it should be a fairly large one.” Under provincial farmland ownership laws, publicly traded companies or their affiliates must receive approval from the Saskatchewan Farmland Security Board if they want to buy more than 10 acres of farmland in the province. Corus has received approval from the farmland security board to acquire properties on two quarter sections in and around the hamlet of Northgate as well as an additional seven quarter sections of nearby land in the RM. There are two elevators in the Northgate area: a General Mills facility on the American side of the border and a Richardson Pioneer facility located a few kilometres north of the border. The Richardson facility has been inactive for several years. Gould said Riverland Ag has been an active buyer of Canadian cereal grains. “Historically, (we have) been big buyers of Canadian oats, not so much Canadian wheat and barley because of the Canadian Wheat Board,” he said. “But we expect that to change as markets become more integrated.”

Former Sask. senator dies BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Former Saskatchewan Liberal senator Herb Sparrow, who died Sept. 6 from complications of a stroke at age 82, was a Senate icon — a symbol of the patronage system and also of Senate independence. His work was also an example of how the usually background Senate can produce reports that literally change the face of rural Canada. As chair of the Senate agriculture committee, Sparrow’s name was attached to a 1984 report on soil erosion that became the most circulated Senate report ever and a major influence on prairie farm decisions to reduce summerfallow. The Soils at Risk report was shipped around the world, including a request for 400 copies in Australia after a 2004 drought. Sparrow, in an interview as he prepared to leave the Senate in 2005, recalled the report as a highlight of his career. It was triggered by his experience as a North Battlefordarea farmer and the evidence of salinization on fallow land. It also made him famous, leading to an award from the Soil Conservation Council of Canada and an Order of Canada membership. “I was in the right place at the right time,” said Sparrow. “Farmers were ready for the message when they might not have been earlier. And I busted my ass, travelled a lot and spoke to anyone who would listen. But it worked.” For his Senate work and local charity projects, he was also named North Battleford’s Citizen of the Decade for the 1980s. When he was forced to retire from the Senate in 2005 at age 75, Sparrow was the longest-serving senator, appointed at age 38 by prime minis-

Critics of the Upper House used him as an example of egregious patronage. But Sparrow also showed an independent streak, often angering the Liberal party by siding with the opposition, in one case casting the decisive vote that killed a Liberal bill to cancel a Conservative deal with Toronto airport developers without compensation and forcing Ottawa to pay hundreds of millions of dollars. Sparrow, a part-time stand-up comedian, also raised Liberal eyebrows when he spoke to a 1989 Reform party convention. Reformers had a serious hate on for the unelected Senate and here was a Liberal who already had 21 years of Senate sinecure under his belt. “The Senate has some nice digs,” he told the crowd, which included Stan Waters, soon to be appointed as the first “elected” senator from Alberta. “It sleeps 104.”

It’s time to develop storage strategies Loss prevention | Clean bins, monitor stored grain for moisture and insects BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

High grain prices, high input costs and better than average yields add up to a lot of risk. As a result, it’s vital to devise a storage strategy ahead of time to avoid insect and moisture damage. The place to start is a thoroughly cleaned bin, whether it’s a flat bottomed grain bin on wood, steel, asphalt or concrete or a hopper bottomed unit. Brent Elliot of the Canadian Grain Commission said it’s tempting to take hopper bottomed bins for granted by not removing all of the grain and sweeping out accumulated dust. “Insects can survive in even small amounts of cereal grain that is left in a bin,” he said. “If the bin has a fan and aeration system for drying, that can get grain inside it, in tubes. Insects can be lurking in there.” Saskatchewan Agriculture entomologist Scott Hartley said producers must avoid creating habitat for insects such as the rusty grain beetle, which is the Prairies’ most common

Whether it’s a flat bottomed grain bin on wood, steel, asphalt or concrete, or a hopper bottomed unit, ensure it is thoroughly cleaned before loading this year’s crop. | FILE PHOTO grain pest. In some areas, the foreign grain beetle and red flour beetle can also be problems. Elliot said producers can use high pressure water or air to ensure their bins are clean, but this method requires caution. “They also need to be dry, so with water you need to make sure they get

a chance to air out if you use water.” Hartley said producers may use insecticides such as malathion to treat their bins, but this is only allowed for cereals. Other crops, such as canola and flax, absorb the pesticides and will potentially breach internationally acceptable maximum residual limits for trade.

“It can be useful for older bins (for cereal storage), where getting it really, really clean is an issue. Or where you suspect there might be a problem.” Elliot said grain should be as flat as possible at the top of the bin to avoid uneven moisture concentrations. “I know that can be a challenge and we don’t advocate climbing into the bin to do it, but where it can be done it can help, especially if you are storing it for a longer time,” he said. Grain is an excellent insulator and will develop its own air currents that circulate throughout the bin. While this means the air will remove moisture and energy from grain in one area, it will also deposit it in another, creating hot and moist grain pockets. Hartley said that is an ideal environment for insect development. “We’ve had great harvest conditions for the most part. Hot days,” he said. “Grain is dry and you put it away in the bin and two months later you have spoiled grain and bugs.” This happens because of air movement within the bin. The cooler bin sides cool grain, and the air falls on the outside and rises in the still hot core. These convection currents help water vapour migrate to the cooler walls and bin roof, where it condenses and eventually meets grain. Heat also encourages fungal growth, provided there is moisture, which creates more insect habitat. The grain should be aerated or cooled to less than 15 C as soon as pos-

sible if the moisture content is less than 14.5 percent. Reducing the temperature to 18 C, provided it is dry, generally renders it safe for storage. “Bugs don’t do a lot of feeding or growing below 15 degrees,” Hartley said. “Luckily, winter will come and the grain will get there, provided it hasn’t started to heat.” Grain monitoring cables can be placed in the bin before loading. These can give readings on temperature conditions within the bin. The grain’s convection currents will be minimized when the temperature gradient has stabilized within the bin, and the grain will store safely. The grain commission recommends checking stored grain every few weeks until it can be reasonably assumed that the grain is dry and the temperature stable. Grain vacuums are effective tools for killing insects at any stage of development. Diatomaceous earth is also effective, especially when added preventively to dry grain as it is placed in storage at harvest. Malathion is also effective when added to grain as it is transferred. Phosphine, carbon dioxide and a combination of the two can be used to fumigate bins with insect problems. Chlorpyrophos, diazinon, dichlorvos, dimethoate and other insecticides such as pyretherins are registered for use to prevent insect development when treating corners and hard to clean areas.





Regionally appropriate seed security vital for organic farming ORGANIC MATTERS



e may not be sure which came first, the chicken or the egg, but we can be pretty sure the seed comes first in plant- based agriculture. Protecting the right to farm requires

that we develop and protect regionally appropriate seed systems. Organic Alberta has joined in this process with several initiatives. John Navazio, senior scientist with the Organic Seed Alliance, shared his passion for growing high quality seeds and building strong regional seed communities at Organic Alberta’s farmer field days in July. He feels local seed communities are the best way to maintain genetic diversity and assure that farmers have choice. “We rely on farmers’ knowledge, working with farmers as equal partners,” Navazio said. “We have some tricks of the trade

we can share, especially if you are not getting the varieties you need.” He told market gardeners that having crops work well with their rotations means increasing number of crops flowering each month. This diversity supports pollinators and other beneficial insects and provides a valuable revenue stream. Navazio illustrated some of the problems with the industrial seed system using his own research. Golden beets were not considered desirable by the large commercial vegetable seed companies. Growers found golden beets popular at market, but varieties available to them had poor agronomic quality.

selection; it provides a crucial selection pressure,” Navazio said. Commercial varieties are bred for production under high inputs. “Why would you breed for resistance when all growers spray,” he said. However, selecting under weedy conditions encourages more competitive varieties of carrot. Testing spinach selections in a field with “every disease known to spinach” results in disease resistant varieties. “Always grow in less than optimal conditions,” Navazio said, both to improve the lines for seed saving and to improve the crop’s nutrient scavenging and nutritional value. Navazio also spoke to oat growers about ClifBar’s interest in oat seed stocks. ClifBar, a maker of organic energy bars, buys oats from Alberta. It is interested in the long-term stability of supply, which includes making sure that farmers have the oat seed stocks they need. ClifBar funded Navazio’s visit to Alberta and is encouraging the interaction of the Organic Seed Alliance with organic farmers in Alberta. Organic Alberta’s oat committee is working with Jennifer Mitchell Fetch, an oat breeder from the Cereal Research Centre in Winnipeg. Organic producers in Alberta are growing seed she has selected for organic producers and making selections of their own from her material. Although the relationship with Mitchell Fetch is valuable, her facility is one destined to be closed as part of recently announced federal cuts to research. This points out to producers the need to be ultimately responsible for their own seed needs. Navazio hopes to work with producers to improve their ability to maintain high quality in saved seed and to improve their seeds’ regional adaptation. USC Canada also sent representatives to Organic Alberta’s farmers’ field day. Formerly the Unitarian Service Committee, USC has a strong history of action to develop food security systems in the global south. The organization has recognized that Canadian farmers have some of the same problems: a shrinking diversity of seed, increasing concentration of seed ownership among a few corporations and a loss of traditional knowledge of seed production. USC manager Suzie Walsh explained her desire to promote “food sovereignty and the farmers’ right to grow what they want.” USC is launching the Bauta Initiative in Canada to facilitate a more secure and diverse seed system, with particular emphasis on small-scale and organic farmers and local seed production and seed saving. It is eager to work with groups such as Organic Alberta and Seeds of Diversity to strengthen the work that is already underway. Organic Alberta is working with organic producers and organizations that are interested in preserving a farmer’s access to high quality seed to produce high quality food. In this, it is showing leadership in developing and maintaining a strong and healthy food system. Brenda Frick, Ph.D., P.Ag. is an extension agrologist and researcher in organic agriculture.

Will algae become the next big thing in fertilizer? Nitrogen from algae | On a farm in New Mexico, algae are fed and cared for like livestock BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

MORIARTY, N.M. — The next source of fertilizer might be growing in a tank in New Mexico. All it takes is low-cost plant food, water and sunlight. Researcher and entrepreneur Calvin Hildebrand is rolling the dice on a natural source of nitrogen fertilizer from algae. He’s conducting his work on old Route 66, in the dry soil of New Mexico where irrigation is the only way to grow crops. Hildebrand has been working with local farmer Sam Shook to provide an alternative to traditional nitrogen fertilizers. “He has a new pivot and I have new concept,” said Hildebrand. Billions of scenedesmus green algae are growing in a pair of 10,000 litre poly tanks. The algae was harvested from the edge of a pond on a local cattle ranch. “We know these are native to the area and they both eat and fix nitrogen,” he said. The algae are maintained in a carefully monitored environment inside a solar powered facility. Air and carbon dioxide are fed to the algae using pumps. The tanks are shaded lightly from the desert sun to keep them warm, but not so warm as to kill the organisms. The samples have been grown in the soils lab at a college in Santa Fe. The batch that Hildebrand is now working with has been growing for four months. However, in three

weeks he can produce enough to spread on a field, in this case about 24,000 litres, along with irrigation water. “We can produce them faster, but this is a very early stage in a production model,” he said about the collection of tanks, pumps, valves and pipes on Shook’s farm. “They take a lot of attention, but once the growth process is underway, it is no different than raising some livestock. You need to feed them and ensure their environment is appropriate and they grow. “These critters just take some of their food from the air and fix it into something they need, nitrogen,” Hildebrand said. “Each one of those little algae is a little bundle of NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium).” Grid soil sampling is monitoring the effectiveness of the algae as a liquid fertilizer on the pivot-fed, 160acre field, including one, two and three foot levels. “Samples are tested at the (soil) lab in Amarillo, (Texas), so we can get objective measures of what is happening in the soil, not just the crop.” He is also developing a remote monitoring system that will send a message to the operator if any of the growth parameters are exceeded. “We monitor pH, nitrogen, temperature, not unlike looking after food processing systems or a distillery,” he said. The prototype uses two grams of carbon dioxide for every gram of algae. “It runs on sunlight and it sequesters carbon dioxide. Sounds like the

Hildebrand said algae are known for their ability to remove nitrogen not only from the air but also from water and soil. Land has been irrigated for generations in the intermountain area near Moriarty, N.M., east of Albuquerque, and nitrogen has moved down through porous soil into the local aquifer. “There is a desire to rid the soil of those issues and we are hoping that the micro-algae will do that, too,” Hildebrand said about his company,

And of course, then there are green investors looking for something sustainable,” he said. “Me, I’m an old guy now. I was in the real estate development business. I divided up a lot of land into urban lots … I’d like to give some-

thing back to the world before my time is up.” The company plans to offer the technology to distributors on a franchise basis. “We’re going to keep most of the research open source, and offer technical support that will make it financially appealing,” he said. “It isn’t limited to southern regions. It could be operated in greenhouses and used in northern climates, but this a very low cost area with all our sunshine.” For more information, contact Hildebrand at the Energy Conversion Corp. at 505-470-3585.





Goodbye, Henry, thanks for sharing your machinery insights PRODUCTION MATTERS



enry Guenter has been a well-received part of The Western Producer for the past six years. As a regular author writing our regular Inside Machines column, Henry

received a steady flow of reader mail with questions about maintaining and operating farm equipment. Henry has chosen to retire from writing his column for our publication, and his readers will miss him. When Henry began writing for The Western Producer, he had retired from a long career at AGCO as a technical service manager, having started with the company when his part of the company was still Massey Ferguson. As an accomplished mechanic, he had spent much of his career assisting dealerships and farmers with the introduction of new equipment and helping his company refine its designs with testing and feedback.

To that end, he specialized in combine technologies, touring Western Canada to conduct combine clinics for farmers and dealers, helping them learn to make the most of their machines. He would also travel to farms to troubleshoot threshing issues and new machine design bugs. However, his work extended to all areas of farm equipment, and he helped dealers develop maintenance programs and staff training. By the time he retired and began writing a column for the Producer, he knew “a lot about a little stuff and little about darn near everything” when it came to farm machinery. “I don’t claim to know too much about the latest machinery and the

computer systems that run them today, but I have written about the older stuff and about the things that don’t change too much,” he said. Henry wrote more than 50 columns for the Producer, and I had the pleasure of editing them and providing ideas that he would develop for his readers. His columns ranged widely, from reducing wheel hop and properly balancing tractor ballast to maintaining baler knotters and setting combines. He wrote about the importance of preparing machinery before putting it away for winter and what to do when you took it out in the spring. I found out why we buy so many batter ies for our machiner y. I

wouldn’t clean off the dust and light debris from the tops in the fall, which would add to the drainage and failure. I now remove them from the machines, clean them off and store them in the shop. We buy fewer batteries than we did previously. We also grease cold machines ahead of fall storage and roll them over a few times before they are put away. Fewer early season bearing failures have occurred as a result. He told all of us that setting the combine should begin by putting everything in the tank and then improving the sample from there. You get the most capacity from the combine on that basis and find out where your machine’s limitations occur. He expounded not only on avoiding machinery failures but also explained the causes, understanding that “farmers always want to know why. They have inquisitive minds and they want to make things better.”

It’s the canola herbicide you’ve been wishing for. HENRY GUENTER FORMER WP COLUMNIST

It’s no wonder farmers are just itching to get their hands on this. New ARES™ herbicide is an integral part of the enhanced Clearfield® Production System for canola. It controls all the weeds other systems get plus the ones they don’t, including tough weeds like Lamb’s quarters, Wild buckwheat and Cleavers. And with its user-friendly, liquid formulation, it’s bound to be on most canola farmers’ wish lists this year. Visit your BASF retailer or for more details.

“So I told them,” he said when we discussed the end of his column a few weeks ago. Henry also helped readers understand how farm equipment dealerships function and why and how to resent their service departments less. Safety has always been a focus for Henry’s columns, having been an agricultural professional during a time when a noticeable number of farmers had missing digits and safety systems were limited to shields that tended to be removed right after machinery purchase. He had seen the aftermath of many accidents and he related some of those over the years as warnings to his readers. Last year we helped Henry put together a collection of his columns in a book format that he sold to readers. Despite having significant health issues over the past few seasons, Henry has continued to type his columns, although at times I have not been sure how. But he said he felt he had a few more things to say about farm machinery, dealerships and maintenance and would stop when he ran out. He has recently decided that he has shared the most important parts of his experience with Western Producer readers and will retire this month. He will continue to answer reader questions by e-mail and sell his book in electronic and print formats through The Western Producer at We will miss his columns and his phone calls to our office, and as his editor I will miss the regular conversations about farm equipment, both new and old. Thanks Henry, and as you often said to your readers, “be careful out there.” Michael Raine is managing editor and production editor at the Western Producer. Contact him at 306-665-3592 or e-mail

Beef sector missing opportunities Lack of leadership blamed | Canada depends too much on U.S. beef imports, says think-tank BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Canada’s $6 billion beef industry is at a tipping point, lacking leadership and a strategy to cash in on its competitive advantages, says a new think-tank analysis. In a report published Sept. 10, the government and industry-funded Canadian Agricultural Policy Institute said the sector lacks champions to lead it into a more competitive future. And while exports to the United States are worth $1.8 billion, shipments tend to be live animals that are fattened, slaughtered and processed in the U.S. The value of imports of beef products from the U.S. exceeds exports, and the gap is growing. Despite a raft of off-shore trade deals, the United States remains the key market. “We increasingly are depending on beef product imports from the U.S.” CAPI president David McInnes said. Institute researchers spoke to more than 80 sector players last year to prepare the report. “There is a real feeling that we’re missing an opportunity,” he said.

The trade balance of Canada’s beef sector with the U.S. is in decline. Is this not a strong signal of a loss of competitiveness? THINK-TANK REPORT

“There is a falling rate of beef consumption in Canada, and an increasing portion of that is imported.” He said consumers are increasingly interested in local food sources, while the Canadian beef industry continues to concentrate on trade with the U.S. “I just sense that there is a feeling within the sector that there is little alignment and little leadership,” he said. The study raises the issue of whether Canada is too dependent on north-south trade, which is increasingly turning against Canada. It asks some questions. “The value of our exports to other countries can attract higher premiums than the value of our exports to

the U.S.,” says the report. So how can the sector decide what is the proper export mix? The Canadian cow herd is declining, so does that mean Canada will not be able to meet future export or domestic demands? As well, the trade deficit with the U.S. in beef trade continues to grow. “The trade balance of Canada’s beef sector with the U.S. is in decline,” says the report. “Is this not a strong signal of a loss of competitiveness?” CAPI, a research think-tank housed on Agriculture Canada property and supported by an Agriculture Canada start-up grant as well as industry funding, says the beef industry has not developed a road map to figure out how it should deal with evolving consumer and market pressures, including the demand for more traceability records and better collaboration with other players in the food chain. “We are strongly of the view that future success depends on how individual agri-food players work with others in their respective supply chains and among other key players to meet the needs of consumers, address changing expectations for

how food is produced and enhance the productive capacity of the environment,” says the report. CAPI said industry must lead the development of a strategy. “But governments can then support genuine strategy development and effectively align its investments behind the priorities, such as tailoring its own policies, initiatives, funding and regulations to enable the strategy.” The CAPI report also calls for more co-ordinated industry leadership, suggesting there is no effective national voice to connect all parts of the sector. “Each supply chain needs to act,” it said. “In addition, the sector needs to consider whether there should be a national organization with a mandate and the financial means to articulate and support an overall domestic and international strategy.” The CAPI report suggests that without more co-operation and national leadership across the sector, it could continue to lose its market share internationally and domestically. “Without such a body, will the status quo be largely maintained?” it said.

Coping with anthrax will soon be a matter only for cattle producers and their veterinarians as the Canadian Food Inspection Agency withdraws from dealing with the disease. As of April 1, 2013, the CFIA will no longer investigate and quarantine premises infected with anthrax, collect samples and submit them for testing, provide the initial dose of vaccine for affected herds, oversee carcass disposal, cleaning and disinfection and pay compensation to help cover disposal costs. Dr. Penny Greenwood, the CFIA’s national manager of domestic disease control, said the decision was made after a review of priorities for the agency’s limited resources. “We feel that our intervention in this disease is really of limited benefit,” she said. “During a time when we have limited resources and have to prioritize, it was natural for us to move away from this type of disease to refocus on diseases that are much more challenging, such as emerging diseases and some of the foreign animal diseases we’re trying to prevent to come into the country.” Anthrax spores are naturally present in the soil in Canada and the disease will never be eradicated, she said. Producers and veterinarians have largely been handling the response to the disease, often acting on preliminary test results to vaccinate herds. “Anthrax is basically handled predominantly by the private sector in that there is a very effective vaccination for it,” Greenwood said. Vaccination is usually done in early spring and often advised in areas where anthrax has been previously found. Anthrax will remain a reportable disease for now and the CFIA will map the cases and make the information available on its website. Producers raising cattle in areas where the disease is found can make their own decisions about vaccination, including whether the benefits outweigh the cost. The agency will license the anthrax vaccine and provide information on how to dispose of infected carcasses. This year, two cases of anthrax were confirmed in Saskatchewan: in July on a cattle farm in the Rural Municipality of Kinistino and in August on a bison ranch in the RM of Three Lakes, north of Humboldt. The CFIA is also reportedly reviewing how it handles at least three other diseases: anaplasmosis, chronic wasting disease and rabies.





Grazing trial assesses cattle, goat partnership Joint venture | Goats help cattle producers manage weeds; cattle producers provide grazing for goat sector expansion STORIES BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

HUMBOLDT, Sask. — When goat producer Brian Payne moved his animals onto the Wolverine community pasture this summer, he came with them and stayed. Payne, manager and partner in Caprina Farm & Ranch, has been camping out on the pasture west of Lanigan, Sask., since July 19, watching over a herd of 700 goats of different breeds, observing their behaviour and habits and learning how they coexist with their larger neighbours. For a month, the goats also shared a patch of the lakeside pasture with 325 cow-calf pairs, which mowed down grass while the goats tackled more undesirable pasture plants such as snowberry and silverwillow, clearing a wide section of land. “I don’t know anything about goats or grazing them,” said pasture manager Eric Weisbeck. “So when Brian phoned me and said that goats only eat brush, I was all in favour of that. And then when he said I didn’t have to do a whole bunch of fencing, I was even more in favour of that.” The demonstration project is

It’s such a win-win when you can get these benefits to one industry and help bring another industry into existence. BRIAN PAYNE GOAT PRODUCER

funded through the Agricultural Demonstration of Practices and Technologies program and hopes to show the benefits of multi-species grazing in the prairie environment. The idea is simple: the goats help cattle producers manage their weed populations, fighting back against brush encroachment, reducing spraying and mowing costs and increasing stocking rates. In return, goat producers receive feed for their animals and access valuable land needed to add scale and volume as they look to serve growing markets in ethnic communities. Officials hope this demonstration, when combined with the results of a multi-species grazing project at a pasture near Elbow, Sask., will build

and promote the practice. “It’s such a win-win when you can get these benefits to one industry and help bring another industry into existence,” said Payne. “Without the landowner, without the cattle people, we wouldn’t ever be able to really grow this goat industry.” Other than one dead doe, Payne’s herd hasn’t faced serious pressure from predators while in pasture, although Payne won’t know an official tally until the goats are counted at the end of the season. Weisbeck said there was little interaction between the animals, and neither he nor the 45 producers whose 1,300 cattle graze 17,000 acres at Wolverine had any concerns about the goats or the guardian dogs who

work with them. “It’s just a novelty thing for them,” said Weisbeck. “They didn’t have any concerns with their cattle and competition and that sort of a thing.” An Peischel, a small ruminant specialist at Tennessee State University, told a multi-species grazing conference near Humboldt that cattle largely feed on grass, and goats eat mostly browse plants and to a lesser extent broadleaf weeds, which keeps competition to a minimum. However, the goats must still be managed. The large acres at Wolverine forced the pasture to use only the existing perimeter fencing and a short stretch of electrical fence for training, which will assist the end-of-season roundup. The only other infrastructure is a trough for water and mineral requirements. Payne’s plan is for 60 days of grazing at Wolverine, but another situation may call for something different. Depending on the space and the size of the herd, a producer could be there for as little as a few days or even hours, said Peischel. Payne said the herd returns nightly to the base camp where it was first dropped off, but every day the ani-

mals are grazing a wider area. In the first week of September, it was more than 20 kilometres. “It is intensive management. You don’t just put goats on land and leave them. It’s a whole different way of looking at the business,” said Peischel. “Cattle you can put out there, you check them every other day or so, but goats you have to be there every day.” A cattle-goat partnership must balance the needs of both species, Peischel said. “If you’re doing any type of contracting, when you start writing your contracts, if (resting vegetation and animal performance) aren’t agreeable by the people you’re writing your contract with, don’t do business, because it’s an economic loss,” she said. Officials working on the demonstration hope to keep the project going into a second year, moving the goats to a different spot on the pasture. Another possibility is to try rotating the goats through different pastures. “It’s no different than anything else. It’s a joint venture. You provide the land. I provide the goats and the goat expertise,” said Payne. “This is how we work together.”

Educated producers help goats build better soil: specialist JANSEN, Sask. — An Peischel sees the Canadian Prairies and its large land base as good ground for goats. The small ruminant specialist from Tennessee State University has worked with the animals across North America and sees potential to place goats in prairie pastures alongside cattle and sheep. “I think it’s amazing here. There’s so much opportunity here,” she said during a stop at Caprina Farm & Ranch near Jansen, Sask., on a recent field tour. “I think it’s pretty unbelievable.” Peischel has employed goats in large land restoration projects, stra-


tegically using them to remove undesirable plants while fertilizing the land and building better soil. Others may see the animal differently — as a destroyer, aggressively mowing through areas while consuming anything and everything. “The limiting factor of the goat is

you. Goats are opportunistic. You have to be able to have the vision of being able to understand them,” she said. Part of Peischel’s work is to educate producers on the potential that a controlled and well-managed herd has as a land enhancer. The basic methodology she described will be familiar to cattle producers. “It’s all based on plants — resting the plants,” she said. “You rest the ones you want to maintain and you overgraze the ones you want to take out.” A better understanding of plants will not only help mindful landown-

ers but also the goat meat producer looking to attain an ideal body conditioning score. While a goat will eat a lot of things, that doesn’t mean it should. Peischel said producers need to closely manage and watch their herds, finding the right breed and understanding their behaviour and the makeup of the plants the animals are eating. She used the shrub scotch broom as an example, which can influence estrogen levels and pregnancy development when eaten three weeks before flowering,. “We need to know what are the

toxic factors that come along with all the different plants,” she said. Young green leaves and stems are best for the animals. They provide better crude protein content and are more easily digestible, which means the goats eat more and receive better nutrition. Dead leaves and mature stems are worse nutritionally and take longer to digest. “They can’t eat enough because they can’t get it out and there’s not enough quality for them to absorb,” she said. “So you’re really stressing their microorganisms.”





Maedi-visna virus reduces milk output, weaning weights ANIMAL HEALTH



aedi-visna is an important viral disease that damages economic returns to sheep producers around the world. The name comes from the Icelandic language: maedi means difficulty breathing, which was a symptom of the pneumonia that developed, and visna means shrinking or failing, which was seen with a neurological form of the disease. The other name for the disease is ovine progressive pneumonia, which describes the slowly progressive, untreatable pneumonia that develops in some sheep infected with this virus. The virus that causes this disease is from the lentivirus family, which are sometimes called slow viruses. They typically infect their host for life and the disease slowly develops over time. The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) associated with AIDS in people is one of the more well known viruses of the lentivirus family. The maedi-visna virus tends to target the lungs, mammary glands, brain, spinal cord, joints and lymph nodes and causes an ongoing inflammatory reaction. The slow nature of the virus and the disease means that we rarely see clinical diseases in animals until they are at least two years old. Clinical signs are usually more apparent closer to four or five years of age. In some sheep, the inflammatory process is most predominant in the lungs, which causes a chronic pneumonia with a dry spasmodic cough. The affected animals usually do not have a fever and often experience significant weight loss or wasting as a secondary effect of the pneumonia. However, the most common clinical sign of a maedi-visna virus infection is a mammary gland infection that results in a firm udder. Milk production is drastically reduced, although the milk appears normal. Producers familiar with the disease often refer to it as hard bag. The drop in milk production can affect weaning weights of lambs from infected ewes and is probably one of the most important economic consequences of the disease. In addition, several studies have also shown that infected ewes are less likely to get pregnant, probably as a result of the weight loss that occurs in association with the other symptoms. Two studies have recently tried to estimate the prevalence of this disease in Western Canada. The more recent Manitoba study sampled sheep from 77 flocks and found that 2.4 percent of ewes tested were positive for antibodies. Twentyfive percent of the farms tested had at least one ewe test positive for the disease. An earlier study focused on sampling cull ewes in Alberta abattoirs and found that 27 percent had evidence of the disease in their lungs or udders and 13 percent had antibodies to the virus in their blood.

It makes sense that the cull ewes would have a higher prevalence of the disease than the ewes randomly sampled from the Manitoba farms because the symptoms of maedivisna often result in premature culling of ewes. The virus can be spread through colostrum and milk or directly to the lamb while in the uterus. However, these methods are not efficient and only 20 percent of lambs born to positive ewes become infected through milk and colostrum. The other method of infection is from lamb to lamb or ewe to lamb by coughing or aerosol spread. This can be limited by spreading out the flock and using less intensive rearing methods, especially during lambing.

Knowledge Training Education

There is no treatment for maedivisna, but the disease can be controlled by testing the flock and removing infected animals. A reasonably accurate blood test is available that can detect the antibodies to the maedi-visna virus in infected sheep. This approach allows producers to screen incoming animals to the flock as well as test and remove sheep that test positive. By setting up an annual testing program, producers and veterinarians can design a removal strategy that will effectively control this economically damaging disease. John Campbell is head of Large Animal Clinical Sciences at the University of Saskatchewan’s Western College of Veterinary Medicine.

Opening rabbit plant a hair pulling process Patience and determination needed | Glitches in renovating and licensing the facility have almost been worked out BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

VALLEYVIEW, Alta. — Red tape, rules and regulations haven’t made it easy for a new rabbit processing plant to open its doors. Marion Popkin bought a provincially inspected slaughter plant built inside a shipping container from Rouleau, Sask., 18 months ago. However, floods and road bans prevented her from moving the plant to Alberta until fall. Freeze up in Popkin’s hometown of Valleyview in northern Alberta prevented the construction of additional infrastructure. As well, rules and regulations for rabbit slaughter needed to be written, and a Swiss butcher with his own ideas about how the plant should be designed created additional delays. “We had no idea it would take this long,” Popkin said inside the mostly completed rabbit processing plant. She hopes the plant will be open before the end of September. Popkin said the knowledge she has gained during this process can be used for a blueprint for other rabbit processing plants. “As the industry grows, it’s possible to replicate this plant in different places,” she said. Popkin said she has received hundreds of calls from interested people across the Prairies who want to raise rabbits. Until the processing plant is operating, she encourages potential rabbit producers to wait. “We have a whole list of people who want to raise rabbit and a bunch ready to buy them, we just have a little detail in the middle,” she said. The list of details for the processing plant is long. A concrete pad needed engineered drawings, the packaging room, processing room and cooler needed to meet provincial standards,

Donna Chatwin, Marion Popkin and Hans Neukom stand beside the back end of the rabbit processing plant housed in a shipping container. At the back door is the entry to the cooler. | MARY MACARTHUR PHOTO regulations needed to be rewritten for rabbits rather than cattle and changes need to be made to meet the standards of Hans Neukom, the new Swiss butcher. Neukom insisted the existing processing equipment be removed and additional features added to make

the processing plant more efficient. “We had to redo it a little bit to make it suitable for the kind of work we do here,” said Neukom. In Switzerland, it’s common to process rabbits at small plants. A license isn’t needed if fewer than 1,000 rabbits are butchered a year.

Until all the glitches are worked out of the processing plant, rabbits will be slaughtered at existing slaughter plants and trucked to the processing plant in Valleyview in refrigerated trucks and then shipped to stores and restaurants. Popkin said the 18 months of work

has made her more committed to making the project successful. “We can relate why other plants didn’t make it. You’ve got to do the whole, ‘I believe in it’ thing. The process of trying to get it going is a real market barrier to entry. I think the most important thing is patience.”

Elegant highway sculpture provides history lesson Prairie symbols | Art lining Louis Riel Trail depicts story of Metis life BY WILLIAM DEKAY SASKATOON NEWSROOM

KENASTON, Sask. — She’s made of steel, stands nine feet tall and weighs 850 pounds. Her outstretched hand points to the prairie. She is Cree. The other hand gently touches her son’s head (four feet, 275 lb.) who follows his mother’s learned gaze. He is Metis. Their lifelike hair is crafted from stainless steel that has been painted black. A necklace of antler tips hangs from her neck. The buckskin clothing and moccasins are sheets and straps of one-eighth inch steel moulded and welded together by their creator. Don Wilkins is busy putting the final touches on his latest sculpture at its final resting place. It’s a small triangle of provincial highways department land two kilometres north of Kenaston, just east of Highway 11 and accessible by road. Wilkins prepared the site by himself using his own machinery. Two years in the making, The Lesson is Wilkins’ seventh metal sculpture that he built in his farm shop near Davidson, Sask. His tools are basic: a cutting torch, welder, hammer and pry bar with jaws for bending metal. Passionate about Northwest Canadian history, the retired farmer is focused on recreating moments on

the Prairies between 1850 and 1895. During the winter months he creates steel sculptures that are dedicated to the history of the Metis. In 2001 Wilkins chaired a small committee that successfully lobbied to rename Highway 11 between Regina and Prince Albert the Louis Riel Trail. Since then, Wilkins has been creating and installing historical references to Metis life along that stretch of the highway. Fifteen Red River cart replicas, also made of metal, accompany his sculptures and represent his signature work. “Nothing symbolizes Metis way of life like the Red River cart,” he said. “They are the manufacturers of that cart. It’s what they used on the great buffalo hunts and transporting goods for the fur companies. Up until the railroad, it was the most important freight carrier the west had.” Wilkins said his latest statue is a tribute to the First Nations women. “She is Cree and he is Metis. That is really the characteristic of the human evolution when this country was opened up to European contact. The Europeans took native women for their country wives but also for many other practical reasons,” he said. “Reading about the native women in our Canadian history, you just pick up so much respect for them. I really feel that they were undervalued....

That’s why I think she had a lot to tell her son. He would be well advised to take heed in what his mother was pointing out.… Probably she’s looking at the landscape and there’s something out there she thinks he should notice. I think her teaching goes on constantly. She’s imparting a prairie survivor’s philosophy, the understanding of this land.” Wilkins said the land and nature also shaped him and inspired his art. As a boy growing up near what is now Grassland National Park in southern Saskatchewan, he wandered the land around his family’s remote home. “The hills became my friends. They were part of me,” he said. “I’m taking my family back on occasion and showing them why I am what I am. Somehow, the environment you grow up in has woven its way into your life, into your habits and whatever you’re doing.”

‘Exciting time’ in pulse sector Legumex Walker | The company calms fears about power concentration after recent acquisitions

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





Since merging to form a publicly traded company last summer, the managers of Legumex Walker have had a busy 14 months. The Winnipeg-based processor of pulses, special crops and canola has gone on a buying spree, purchasing processing plants in the United States and Canada. Despite its run of acquisitions and a trend towards consolidation in the industry, a spokesperson for Legumex Walker said growers don’t need to worry about a few players dominating the special crops industry in Western Canada. “Really, the number of names out there hasn’t changed all that dramatically. So I would say there potentially will be some more consolidation, but I don’t think there has been a tremendous concentration of ownership,” said Anthony Kulbacki, chief operating officer of special crops for Legumex Walker. When Roy Legumex and Walker Seeds merged last summer, Legumex Walker announced it would pursue opportunities to acquire family-run processors of special crops and company executives have followed through on that plan. In August, the company signed a deal to purchase Keystone Grain, a flax and sunflower processor in Winkler, Man. In February, Legumex bought a dry bean processor in Minnesota and sunflower processing facilities in North Dakota. Assuming its purchase of Keystone Grain is finalized in September, Legumex Walker will own about a dozen facilities that process pulses and special crops on the Prairies and the Northern Plains. In addition, the company also has an 85 percent share in Pacific Coast Canola, a crushing plant under construction in Washington state that is expected to open in 2013. Although it remains neutral on mergers and acquisitions in the industry, the Manitoba Pulse Growers Association is paying attention, said interim executive director Michael Reimer.

U.S. markets were sluggish following a jobs report that failed to meet expectations, which increased fears that the economic recovery is faltering. Traders were awaiting a U.S. Federal Reserve stimulus package expected Sept. 13 to help lower interest rates. A report showing China’s deepening economic slump cast further caution into commodity and resource markets.

“We are keeping an eye on these things. Right now it seems to be where things are headed.... It seems to be the reality of things right now (that) a lot of this consolidation is occurring.” Reimer said the association doesn’t plan to be vocal about consolidation in the special crops industry, unless there are developments that “indicate our farmers will start losing value or being taken advantage of.” Kulbacki said it’s unlikely that a few dominant players will emerge and reign over growers, because processors need producers to grow edible beans, flax, sunflowers and other specialty crops.

family-run processor in rural Manitoba to play in the global marketplace. As well, if a small company processes one particular crop and relies solely on that crop for its livelihood, it can be a risky enterprise, Reimer said. “For instance, we’ve seen our edible bean acres decrease. So if you have all of your eggs in one of those baskets and things start trending towards decreased production, then it becomes a huge issue.” Looking back over the last decade, Kulbacki said there was a period in the early 2000s when the special crops industry went through a period of rapid expansion in Western Canada. As a consequence, there was a bit of over-capacity and a number of companies went out of business. Since that time the industry has become more resilient, he noted. “As much as there has been a consolidation, there has (also) been a rationalization…. Stronger players, still family-owned companies and small public companies, like ourselves, have emerged. So I think it’s an exciting time.”

“From my standpoint, there’s no benefit to anybody to have (industry) concentration to a point that it’s detrimental to the grower,” said Kulbacki, who was chief financial officer at Legumex Walker before taking on a new role in special crops in August. “Our success is very much linked to the success that (producers) see from growing specialty crops…. It’s got to be a symbiotic relationship.” Nonetheless, special crop growers also need processors who are successful. And those companies must have the capital and the capability to market an array of crops around the globe. “One of the explicit goals of our company is to provide… market opportunities to our growers,” Kulbacki said. “We’ve invested in a diverse sales force. We’ve got people from around the world who sell for us as employees, from Mexico to Argentina to Lebanon. So we know those markets very well so they (sales staff) can bring back the information and open up the opportunities for Canadian and U.S. farmers.” Reimer concurred with Kulbacki’s comments, noting it’s difficult for a

Lower borrowing costs aim of European Central Bank’s new bond-buying program FRANKFURT, Germany (Reuters) — The European Central Bank has agreed to launch its new and potentially unlimited bond-buying program, which is aimed at reducing crisis-hit euro zone countries’ borrowing costs in return for them committing to tough reforms.

“Following today’s decision on Outright Monetary Transactions, the Securities Markets Program (SMP) is herewith terminated,” ECB President Mario Draghi said after the ECB’s Sept. 6 policy meeting. With the old program gone, the new program aims to convince markets

by being potentially unlimited. Draghi was able to win support for the plan by insisting that the ECB would only help countries that signed up to and implemented strict policy conditions. The ECB was hurt last year when it bought Italian and Spanish bonds,

only for Italy to go back on the reform promises. The ECB has learned from the Italian experience. “If the central bank were to intervene without any actions on the part of governments, without any conditionality, the intervention would not be effective and the bank would lose

its independence,” Draghi said. The ECB will now focus on shortterm papers and will buy bonds only with maturities of one to three years. The ECB will also drop its preferred creditor status, which means that the ECB will now be treated equally to private creditors in case of default.





Should you invest in an RRSP or TSFA? MONEY IN YOUR POCKET

Processing wheat, hemp and flax straw eliminates the cost of straw disposal. | GRANT DIAMOND




f you have limited investment funds available and can contribute only to a tax-free savings account or a registered retirement savings plan, which one offers the better tax savings? A TFSA is funded with after-tax dollars, so you don’t receive a tax deduction for contributions. You can make withdrawals from a TFSA without paying taxes, and any withdrawals are added back to the allowable TFSA contribution room for the next year. Withdrawals from an RRSP are fully taxed at your marginal rate with a variable automatic withholding tax of 10 to 30 percent depending on the amount withdrawn. So for example, a $10,000 withdrawal returns $8,000 after the deduction of a 20 percent withholding tax. Any remaining tax owing or overpayments are settled when filing the year’s income tax return. TFSA withdrawals are tax-free, so you receive the full amount without further liability. Attribution rules, such as income splitting, do not apply to a TFSA. The higher income spouse can gift cash to a lower or non-income earning spouse, children older than 18, parents or grandparents to deposit in the lower income earner’s TFSA account without triggering tax consequences. Attribution rules do apply to gifting to an RRSP, which can trigger additional taxes only if the principal is withdrawn. A TFSA also provides a major benefit if you are a middle-income senior. Withdrawals from a TFSA will not be included in income for tax purposes. This means such withdrawals will not trigger clawbacks of income-tested benefits for O ld Age S ecur ity, Guaranteed Income Supplement and GST/HST credits . RRSPs provide a tax deduction up to your maximum allowable contribution room for the year the contribution is made. You receive the benefit now, but in effect this is a tax deferral program because withdrawals of contributions and investment

income are taxed when you take money out of your plan. You also have to collapse your plan in the year you turn 71, which is not a requirement of a TFSA. Simple rules of thumb can be used to determine whether an investment in a TFSA or an RRSP offers the better tax savings. They largely relate to your current tax bracket compared to your anticipated tax bracket when you start to withdraw funds from either plan. For example, if you are in a higher tax bracket now but expect it to be lower in the future, the advantage may go to investing in an RRSP. Any RRSP contribution reduces your taxable income, so you pay less tax at the higher rate. When you withdraw the funds in the future at a lower tax rate, you are paying less tax than had you paid it at the current higher rate. The reverse happens if you anticipate being in a higher tax bracket in the future. Investing in an RRSP now results in a lower tax benefit while setting yourself up for higher taxes on withdrawals in the future. Therefore, it may be better to invest in a TFSA. If you expect that your tax bracket will be the same in the future, then the tax benefits of a TFSA and an RRSP will be relatively the same. Everyone’s personal situation is different, so it’s best to discuss the matter with a tax specialist to determine the right investment for you.

A proposed paper mill and an existing bioproducts centre in Manitoba has received a financial boost from the federal government. Agriculture Canada will invest $385,000 in Prairie Pulp & Paper, which intends to build a wheat and flax straw paper mill in Manitoba. Prairie Pulp & Paper produces straw based paper at a plant in India and sells its branded product, Step Forward Paper, at Staples stores in Canada. The company will use the funding for further research and development of its paper products. If consumers respond positively to the straw-based paper, company lead-

ers hope the success will attract investors for its proposed mill, which will cost more than $500 million to build. “Step Forward Paper is the first paper of its kind to hit shelves in North America and the first step toward meeting more of our paper needs from straw,” Jeff Golfman, President of Prairie Pulp & Paper Inc., said in a news release. Besides supporting straw-based paper, Agriculture Canada also invested $860,000 in the Composites Innovation Centre in Winnipeg. The CIC helps develop and test materials for manufacturing, including biomaterials such as hemp, flax and wheat straw. As an example, researchers at the centre have built car components, a

motorcycle gas tank and bus doors out of hemp fibres. “The support … will enable us to begin development of a global leading capability to rapidly determine the properties of natural fibres that is essential for their adoption by industry,” CIC executive director Sean McKay said in a statement. In one of its most innovative projects, CIC scientists are working with a Calgary company, Motive Industries, to build an electric powered vehicle made entirely from hemp and other natural fibres. A spokesperson for Motive Industries recently told the Calgary Herald that the company continues to work on the unique vehicle, called the Kestrel. It hopes to complete the project later this year.
