Prairie farmers hope for rain Soil moisture levels inadequate in many areas BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM



Beating the old record by 41 combines, a Guinness World Record was achieved when 249 combines harvested for more than five minutes in a field of oats near Dalmeny, Sask., Oct. 6. The event was called Harvest For Kids and organized by Children’s Camps International. FOR A RELATED STORY, SEE PAGE 28. | WILLIAM DEKAY PHOTO


Markets chaotic over XL closure Plant still closed | Producers holding animals, shipping to the U.S. while prices weaken BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Uncertainty will rule the cattle markets as long as the XL Foods cattle slaughter plant in Brooks, Alta., remains closed. “The uncertainty around this thing is driving everybody nuts,” said Martin Unrau, president of the Canadian

Cattlemen’s Association and a producer from Manitoba. Cargill Meat Solutions at High River, Alta., has increased production, but many producers are holding onto animals, while more cows and fat cattle are being exported to the United States. However, U.S. packers may need time to adjust their processing lines because they must segregate Cana-

dian cattle under country-of-origin labelling laws. They will want guarantees of steady, consistent volume before they make such a move. Weakening prices are discouraging producers from doing anything until they see a return to normalcy. “We have had lots of hurdles over time. It is tough out there and there is


a lot of red ink out there, but prices haven’t fallen off anywhere like they have during BSE,” said Canfax market analyst Brian Perillat. “Hopefully, looking back on this, it will be just a bump in the road rather than a dramatic, changing event,” he said. SEE MARKETS CHAOTIC, PAGE 2

The thing that prairie farmers feared the most just a few short weeks ago has now ascended to the top of their wish list. With this year’s harvest all but complete, growers are looking skyward and hoping for a prolonged, prairiewide soaker. Precipitation has been scarce or non-existent across much of Western Canada this fall. In many areas, fields are rock hard, pastures are parched and winter cereal crops are struggling to take root. In its latest crop report, released Oct. 11, Saskatchewan Agriculture reported topsoil moisture on cropland at two percent surplus, 36 percent adequate, 41 percent short and 21 percent very short. Provincial pastures and hayland are facing similar conditions with 38 percent of total acres short of moisture and 25 percent very short.




Markets chaotic No one anticipated the situation worsening when the first recalls were announced Sept. 16 after E. coli O157:H7 was detected in beef originating from the XL plant in Brooks Alta. Limited information from the owners of XL and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency gave rise to speculation about the impacts on markets and consumer confidence in beef. “If we can get past this thing of not knowing what is going on, everybody can adjust their management and we can move forward and find some way to get that plant opened up and get some confidence back,” Unrau said. The situation may have received more attention than it deserved and lessons need to be learned from this episode, he added. “We don’t need an inquiry, but we definitely need to look at how this was handled and find some way of ensuring things don’t drag on this long if this happens again,” he said. Western sales have slowed in the last week with fewer cows and feeders showing up for sale at auction markets. Cow prices are down about 15 cents per pound, or $200 per head, and feedlots are holding cattle back, which is creating a backlog. Fat cattle can wait a few weeks, but

it becomes costly feeding and maintaining them. However, grades may actually improve with more AAA because the animals are getting fat. At the same time, some animals are on feed additives that require timely marketing to achieve the full benefit of the growth promotants, said Perillat. Profits were already elusive this year for the feeding sector and packers. “There were a lot of losses in the feedlot sector and this is just extending those losses,” he said. XL Foods’ operating licence was temporarily suspended Sept. 27 and more than 1,800 products from across Canada, the United States and Hong Kong have been recalled. Some workers were allowed into the plant Oct. 10 to process carcasses that had been there for nearly three weeks. All meat was tested for the presence of E. coli and ruled safe. CFIA inspectors are scrutinizing the process and have told the company what is expected to ensure food safety in the future. “We have already advised the company that its documented food safety plans are acceptable and that previously identified maintenance and sanitation issues have been addressed,” said the agency in a statement Oct. 12.

Rain and snow over the past few weeks have helped crop development, but it remains to be seen how the province’s winter crops will fare. “With the drier conditions, a lot of (winter) crops were sitting in dry soils and weren’t doing too much in terms of either germinating or emerging,” she said. “Obviously the recent precipitation has helped that. “It (winter wheat) is obviously not going to be as advanced as perhaps we’d like to see it going into the winter but what effect that will have remains to be seen. We’ll just have to wait and see what Mother Nature throws at it over the winter months.”

“That’s probably what everyone is focusing on now is moisture,” said Grant McLean, provincial cropping specialist with Saskatchewan Agriculture. Dry conditions in Alberta were perfect for harvest, but the lack of moisture has hampered fall work and delayed emergence of recently planted winter crops, including winter wheat and fall rye. James Wright, a risk management specialist with Alberta Agriculture, said some parts of the province have received moderate amounts of rainfall over the past two to three weeks. However, many areas are still extremely dry, he added. “Some areas are very dry, especially down south where they haven’t really had any moisture for most of the summer period, other than a few showers and some hailstones,” Wright said. “That’s where most of our summer crop is seeded, is below that Highway

XL report will be made public, says gov’t BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz has promised that once the dust settles on the E. coli scare at XL Foods, the events will be examined and the report made public. “As part of our government’s response to the (Sheila) Weatherill report (on the 2008 listeria food poisoning crisis), an expert advisory committee was established some time ago,” Ritz said in the House of Commons Oct. 15. “That particular committee, along with CFIA, will completely review this, and that report will be public.”

CFIA continues tests at XL Foods Layoffs, recalls issued | No timeline given on when plant will resume full operations BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Partial operations at the XL Foods beef processing plant in Brooks, Alta., were scheduled to resume Oct. 16 after a chaotic weekend of employee layoffs and recalls. XL management issued layoff notices to 2,000 employees Oct.13 and then recalled 800 of them Oct. 14 in a turn of events that suggested conflict between XL and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. The CFIA temporarily revoked the plant’s operating licence Sept. 27 after discovery of E. coli O157:H7 in some of its beef products triggered the recall of more than one million kilograms of meat. Two weeks later, the CFIA authorized partial operation of the plant to assess whether a list of improvements and protocol changes had been made. XL paid its 2,200 employees for a 32-hour work week for the first two weeks of closure while CFIA inspectors examined the plant and made requests for upgrades to food safety systems. But XL issued layoff notices Oct. 13, saying the CFIA could not provide “a definitive timeline” for reopening the plant. The move halted CFIA plans to process 5,100


carcasses inside the plant and test them for contamination. On Oct. 14, XL issued recall notices to 800 of its employees, whom it said in a news release were “key to XL Foods efforts to satisfy the conditions of the temporary licence to demonstrate the implementation of enhanced protocols.” Calls to XL Foods Oct. 15 were greeted with a voice recording with directives to company news releases. The labour situation has caused turmoil for the employees and the town of Brooks, population 14,000, where XL is the largest employer. “I think they may have tried to call the CFIA’s bluff, and put pressure on them to give them opening, and CFIA didn’t back down,” said Doug O’Halloran, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 401, which represents most of

the XL workers. “It’s just a daily kerfuffle of mistakes and bad management,” he said. “I just can’t understand the management decision that lays 2,000 people off one day and then calls back 800 the next day. It’s just ludicrous.” The federally inspected plant is one of the largest in Canada, responsible for an estimated 40 percent of beef cattle slaughter in the West. Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz issued a statement Oct. 14 reiterating his stance that the plant will not reopen until all safety issues have been addressed. Alberta agriculture minister Verlyn Olson discussed the situation with town officials in Brooks last weekend and said at a news conference that he had also talked with XL Foods co-chief executive officer Brian Nilsson. “We need the plant to be open to get the necessary processing and testing done to put CFIA in a position to re-certify the plant,” Olson said he told Nilsson. Wildrose party leader Danielle Smith said Oct. 14 the serious nature of the plant closure requires political co-operation.

“There are big challenges to overcome, but with all parties working together, we believe passing inspection and getting workers back to work by next week is possible,” said Smith. “Getting the XL Foods plant back in production is the first step to rebuilding consumer and industry confidence.” The Alberta Liberal party called for a federal review of what it called “the tainted meat scandal”, noting the U.S. Department of Agriculture plans to conduct its own audit of CFIA food safety protocols. “Albertans deserve to know why action was only taken once the Americans blew the whistle, and why it was delayed,” said leader Raj Sherman. “I want to know if there was some sort of ‘shoot, shovel and shut up’ interference being run.” The call for a review echoed a similar demand issued Oct. 10 by Local 401 and the Alberta Federation of Labour. There was no word on when the plant will reopen as of press time for this issue Oct. 15. The CFIA has said it will not allow beef to be shipped from the XL plant until it is confident food safety controls are in place and working.

It is a food safety advisory committee with industry and government representatives and chaired by former Canadian Food Inspection Agency president Ron Doering. Ritz made the announcement while under intense pressure throughout question period in the House of Commons to justify the performance of the government and the CFIA in the XL food scare. NDP leader Thomas Mulcair said there is “still no accountability” 42 days after American inspectors discovered E. coli and after 15 confirmed consumer illnesses from the incident. He said cattle producers, consumers and packing plant workers are paying the price for government incompetence. “When will the minister of agriculture and agri-food take responsibility and resign?” Ritz ignored demands to resign and insisted the government has added resources to the CFIA that opposition MPs opposed in budget votes. He repeatedly rejected opposition claims that funds to the CFIA have been cut during government restraint, even though spending documents tabled in Parliament project a cut. Finally, late in question period, Liberal agriculture critic Frank Valeriote rose. “Sadly, consumers are losing confidence in the beef on store shelves and it is hurting cattle ranchers who offer a safe product and did nothing wrong,” he said. “Since the current government’s current system clearly failed, will the minister finally acknowledge that we need an immediate independent and comprehensive CFIA resource audit to better equip our inspectors in order to prevent further damage to our food supply chain?” Ritz’s response, a promise of an internal review that will be made public, did not address the opposition call for an audit of CFIA staff to determine if there really are 700 new inspectors as the government claims and if so, where they work.




When your neighbour is a mega-farm MEGA-PROBLEMS | This is the third instalment in a series of stories exploring the trend toward megafarms across Western Canada and what it means to the farmers who work the fields. BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Alan Brecka blames his mega-farm neighbours for preventing him from expanding his modest grain farm. The 32-year-old got into the business 10 years ago, renting 320 acres near Picture Butte, Alta., from his father. He now rents two sections from his father and owns another, farming a total of 1,920 acres. His goal is to expand the operation to 3,000 acres, but that appears to be an unrealistic objective. Brecka can’t afford the local prices of $2,200 per acre for dry land or more than $1 million a quarter for irrigated land with a pivot. “I can’t pencil in much more than $1,300 to $1,400 (an acre),” he said. Brecka claims land prices have been inflated by his mega-farm neighbours. He has to bid against two Hutterite colonies and a number of feedlots such as Cor Van Raay Farms. However, the large operations say they are just as handcuffed by escalating farmland values as is Brecka and haven’t been expanding their operations. Brecka said he’s up against unfair competition. He said that the Van Raay operation is using millions of dollars in government subsidy money to buy farmland, which it received as compensation for damage to its feedlot business stemming from the BSE crisis. “All these guys got this huge payout and they managed to expand and get bigger,” he said. “These mega-farms seem to want to farm everything.” Darren Van Raay, president of Cor Van Raay Farms, said the family operation he runs with his three sisters consists of 11,000 acres of crops and a 25,000-head feedlot. “I don’t know if we’re a mega-farm. I think we’re probably an average size,” he said. According to Statistics Canada, the average Alberta farm size was 1,168 acres in 2011. Van Raay can sympathize with the plight of a young farmer trying to expand his operation given today’s high land prices, but he’s not willing to shoulder the blame. He recently bought four quarters near Brecka but that was a personal purchase. The company hasn’t been active in the land market for six or seven years. “Seems like since BSE I can count the amount of acres that I’ve bought on my hand, almost,” said Van Raay. His father, Cor Van Raay, acquired

most of the land in the 1990s when the dollar was weak and the cattle business was strong. Not much farmland hits the market these days and when it does, Van Raay said he has a tough time bidding against the Hutterite colonies and other buyers. A competing feedlot recently sold

five quarters of irrigated land to a British Columbia greenhouse for in excess of $1 million per quarter. “I’m actually in the same boat (as Brecka). Some of the prices for land, even for us, are getting astronomical,” he said. George Wurz, manager of the Albion Ridge Hutterite Colony near

Picture Butte, can’t believe what has happened to real estate values in the area. Ten years ago, the colony could buy a quarter section for about $400,000. Today, the same land is worth up to $700,000. “We didn’t drive it up ourselves. The farmer comes along and he

wants that kind of money. We have to pay it. We can’t do nothing,” he said. “I don’t know who drives it up. (We) just about can’t afford it now.” The colony owns 8,600 acres and rents another 5,000. “We haven’t bought land for 10 years now. If any land comes up for sale, bang, it’s gone,” said Wurz. Van Raay said his operation needs farmland to supply feed to the feedlot and to spread manure. “So if there is a piece across the road from me for sale, I am going to be pretty aggressive on that just because I can save money in the long run on manure costs,” he said. Brecka said escalating land costs are only one of the downsides of living next to a mega-farm. “There seems to be no neighbourly interactions anymore. When you look to a mega-farm, it’s all go, go, go,” he said. “You don’t know who’s running the tractor. You don’t stop to talk to them anymore because they got to go.” Brecka said Van Raay employs a lot of Mexican Mennonites, who he said are standoffish. “The community aspect is all gone. They don’t curl. They don’t play hockey. They don’t come to social functions. What they do is they stick to themselves and that’s about it.” Van Raay estimates 20 percent of the farm’s 50 employees are Mexican and a number of those are Mexican Mennonites. He agreed that he doesn’t see them at the rinks, but they attend local fairs and patronize restaurants, hardware stores and other businesses. “They’re just generally a little quieter people. They don’t go to the bar,” said Van Raay. He would happily employ more local kids if they were willing to do the same work and put in the same long hours, but there is a shortage of that type of labour. “At the end of the day, I need somebody to drive a tractor and I need somebody to work in the feedlots,” said Van Raay. He said feedlots tend to be a lightning rod for criticism, but a lot of the BSE money his farm received bolstered feeder cattle prices and kept hundreds of local cow-calf producers in business. Van Raay contends towns like Picture Butte wouldn’t be the communities they are today without the economic activity generated by area feedlots. He denied the allegation that the company has gone on a post-BSE spending spree with government money. “Without that money, we wouldn’t have been around,” he said. “It hasn’t exactly been a walk in the park, to be honest, since then.” Van Raay said more feedlots are selling land than buying land and those that are buying are increasingly growing cash crops such as canola rather than feed crops because there’s more money in grain farming than the cattle business.

Not a banner harvest, but still decent

New levies proposed for wheat, barley

Wheat quality good | Some problems with disease, mould found as final crops are harvested STORIES BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

This year’s grain harvest may not have been as big as some prairie producers had initially hoped, but it appears to have come off in reasonably good condition. According to preliminary figures from the Canadian Grain Commission’s harvest sample program, wheat, lentils, flax and canola all came off in fairly good shape. As of last week, nearly 80 percent of the red spring wheat samples submitted to the program qualified for the top two grades. Twylla McKendry, program manager of analytical services with the commission, said grain quality analysts had reviewed 3,091 samples of western red spring wheat as of Oct 11. Of those submissions, 1,370 samples (44.3 percent) graded No. 1 and 1,095 samples (35.4 percent) graded No. 2. Another 436 samples (14 percent) graded No. 3. “(Some) samples are downgrading because of fusarium, midge and mildew,” said McKendry. “But overall, wheat quality was pretty good.” The quality of flax, lentils and canola also appears to be average or better. Early-harvested flax came off in excellent shape, with mean oil content of 44.3 percent and 91 out of 91 samples grading No. 1. Lentils, including green and red varieties, are also grading well. Out of 202 lentil samples received by the commission, roughly 93 percent were graded No. 1 or No. 2. Roughly 87 percent of the canola samples made the top grade. More details on grain quality from this year’s sample program can be viewed on the grain commission’s website at www.grainscanada. Western Canada’s harvest is now down to the short strokes, with all but a few thousand acres to be combined. The harvest season started early

Mother Nature delivered outstanding harvest weather to most of the province’s growers this year, with good drying conditions, warm temperatures and little moisture. | FILE PHOTO in Manitoba, had few interruptions and wrapped up quickly, said Pam de Rocquigny, a spokesperson for Manitoba Agriculture. As of last week, the vast majority of the province’s crops had been harvested, with the exception of a few remaining fields of sunflowers and corn. “Crop quality was good,” de Rocquigny said. “I think those hot, dry conditions that we saw during the harvest period definitely helped in terms of

retaining the quality of that crop and getting it off in a timely fashion.” In Saskatchewan and Alberta, harvest is down to less than one percent of total seeded acreage. Grant McLean, crop management specialist with Saskatchewan Agriculture, said Mother Nature delivered outstanding harvest weather to most of the province’s growers this year, with good drying conditions, warm temperatures and little moisture. In most years, the province’s agriculture ministry issues weekly crop

reports and harvest updates until late October or early November, McLean said. This year, the last report of the season was scheduled for release Oct. 18. “The harvest season itself was very good,” McLean said. “The only frustration for many producers were the high winds that damaged this year’s canola crop when we still had more than 50 percent of the acres out there. The canola crop in particular faced many challenges throughout the season, but that wind was probably the most frustrating.… It really hit those acres pretty hard.” In Alber ta, many grain and oilseed producers were disappointed with actual yields at harvest time after coddling what appeared to be a bumper crop. James Wright, risk analyst with Alberta Agriculture, said grain and oilseed growers who were hoping for bumper yields received an unexpected surprise when they started combining. “Basically, we’re looking at an average to just slightly above average crop,” Wright said. “I think a lot of guys were a bit disappointed because their crops looked so good … but when they actually went into it and started combining, it just didn’t yield up (like they expected).” Wright said crop quality in most areas of Alberta was good with the exception of canola, which had higher-than-normal greenseed counts in many regions. According to estimates from Alberta Agriculture, only 81 percent of the province’s canola crop will grade No. 1 this year. About 94 percent of the province’s hard red spring wheat and 99 percent of durum will fall into the top three grades. Eighty percent of Alberta’s barley should grade 1CW or higher, the province said.

Saskatchewan’s cereal grain producers could soon see fundamental change to how wheat and barley levies are collected. The changes could also mean a significant increase in the amount of money that is collected annually through producer checkoffs. Saskatchewan agriculture minister Lyle Stewart announced Oct. 12 that two interim committees have been formed to oversee the creation of permanent wheat and barley commissions in the province. The commissions are expected to be running by August 2013. Once they are established, the commissions will have the authority to set and administer provincial levies on all wheat and barley grown in the province. The interim committees announced last week will act as an interim board of directors for the proposed commissions, until formal director elections are held within the next 12 to 18 months. Wheat growers Gerrid Gust, David Marit, Norm Hall, Joan Heath and Cherilyn Nagel were named to the interim wheat committee. Bill Cooper, Bill Copeland, Todd Lewis, Tom Hewson and Dennis Fuglerud will sit on the barley committee. The timelines to establish the commissions are tight but manageable, Steward said. “It is a bit (ambitious) but I believe it can be done and I think the folks on these committees think they can get the work done in that time,” he said. The interim committees held their inaugural planning meetings earlier this month. Norm Hall, a wheat committee member who also serves as president of Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan, said the major issues will be the size of the levies and division of the funds between research and promotion and administration.

Big South American soy crop needed Good weather so far | U.S. corn, soybean supplies expected to be tight, raising the need for big crops in Brazil and Argentina BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The markets are counting on South American farmers to produce bumper corn and soybean crops, and growing conditions appear to be cooperating, says a weather expert. “What I’m looking at, at the moment, is a relatively normal pattern. We’ll see periods of dryness, we’ll see periods of rain, but it should all come out as being a generally favourable production year,” said Drew Lerner, president of World Weather Inc. Grain and oilseed markets are antsy coming off a disappointing U.S. harvest, in which drought drastically

reduced corn and soybean yields. Markets are relying on a big South Amer ican crop to meet global demand when the United States runs out of supply. The U.S. Department of Agriculture forecasts that Brazil will, for the first time, supplant the U.S. as the world’s largest producer and exporter of soybeans. It estimates 81 million tonnes of Brazilian soybean production and 37.4 million tonnes of exports in 2012-13. Argentina is the bigger player in corn markets. The USDA forecasts 28 million tonnes of production and 18.5 million tonnes of exports, which would make Argentina the second largest exporter of the crop behind the U.S.

Lerner has read market commentary from analysts who are already fretting about hot and dry conditions in Brazil. He said Brazilian farmers traditionally start planting their crops in midto-late October, but some growers have bumped up seeding into September in an effort to get more acres in the ground. “The whole reason why they didn’t plant in September before is because it wasn’t always a good month of rain,” said Lerner. “Sure enough, September was hot and dry and that got some people thinking Brazil was in for a crop wreck. Everyone got all bent out of shape.” Fears were heightened by reports

that El Nino had stalled. Australia’s weather office last week said sea temperature changes associated with El Nino have suddenly stopped. Lerner read one analysis stating that would lead to drought in South America. “El Ninos in South America make it rain a lot. It’s just really wet,” he said. “If you don’t have El Nino, it doesn’t mean you’re going to have a dryness problem. It just means it’s not going to rain excessively.” Lerner said the diminishing El Nino means other weather patterns will control what happens in South America and he sees things shaping up nicely. “We are expecting to see a normal

evolution in rainfall across Brazil,” he said. Rain is expected to pick up in late October and early November as moisture systems that develop in the Amazon River basin bring relief to the southern portion of the country. “I feel very confident that the moisture will eventually be there, but I’ve been telling people that we won’t see widespread generalized rains until we get to November,” said Lerner. His forecast calls for a dryness trend developing in northern Argentina in December and January but that is primarily cotton growing country. The rest of Argentina is expected to receive timely rain throughout the corn and soybean growing season.





Rain improves U.S. winter wheat prospects USDA forecasts 55.7 million acres | Rain across Kansas is ‘a godsend’ for crops struggling with extreme drought conditions BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Much of Kansas received 25 to 50 millimetres of rainfall last weekend, which is fantastic news for the state’s winter wheat crop, said a spokesperson for the Kansas Wheat Commission. Topsoil and subsoil moisture in Kansas, the largest winter wheat producing state, was rated as short or very short before the rainstorm, and winter wheat was struggling to emerge from the ground. “There’s a pretty good swath of the state that got half an inch to up to two inches,” said Bill Spiegel, communications director with the Kansas Wheat Commission. “Where we’re at in the wheat planting (progress)… being close to 90 percent complete, man, it’s a godsend.” The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Drought Monitor website rated conditions in Kansas as extreme exceptional drought in the second week of October, before the rain. For instance, U.S. National Weather Service statistics show that 270 mm of rain fell on Kansas City from April 1 to Oct. 10. In a normal year, Kansas City receives 700 mm of rain in that period. So 25 to 50 mm of rain is helpful, but dryness remains a concern, Spiegel said. “I don’t think we can call this a drought buster by any stretch. We’re still mired in some of the worst drought conditions in umpteen decades.” On Oct. 15, the USDA reported that 71 percent of the national winter wheat crop had been planted, spot on the five year average. However, due to the dry conditions germination has been spotty. The USDA says 36 percent of the crop had emerged, down from the five year average of 44 percent. However, the emergence problem is largely in Nebraska, South Dakota, Montana and Colorado. Kansas emergence was close to the five-year average. Hard red winter wheat acreage in Kansas last year rebounded slightly

American farmers seeding winter wheat welcomed rain last weekend after enduring months of drought. More rain will be needed to help with germination and establishment before the crop goes into winter dormancy. | FILE PHOTO from 2010, when growers planted 8.4 million acres, the lowest amount in the state since the 1950s. Kansas producers planted 9.5 million acres of winter wheat in 2011, and that number may rise this fall, said Aaron Harries, marketing director for the Kansas Wheat Commission. “My expectation would be that we would have at least a slight increase in planted acres,” he noted. The USDA’s, supply and demand report released Oct. 11 estimated total U.S. wheat acres at 55.7 million for 2012-13. In comparison, U.S. farmers planted 54.4 million acres in 2011-12 and 53.6 million in 2010-11.

Hard red winter plantings are estimated at 30 million acres. The first official USDA estimate of the new winter wheat crop area comes out in January. In spite of the dry soil conditions, Kansas growers will probably plant more wheat this fall because prices are strong, Harries said. The crop insurance rate for hard red winter wheat this year in the United States was set at $8.78 per bushel. “They set that based off the commodity prices. So, yeah, that’s a fairly high number,” Harries said. Wheat futures for July 2013 on the Kansas City Board of Trade were trading

around $8.70 per bu. in mid-October. Oklahoma producers seeded 5.5 million acres of winter wheat last year, but it’s hard to know if acreage will be slightly up or down this fall, said Mark Hodges, executive director of Plains Grains, a non-profit wheat marketing organization in Stillwater, Okla. The drought in Oklahoma hasn’t been quite as severe as Kansas, but subsoil moisture is extremely poor in many parts of the state, Hodges said. The USDA rated the northern portion of Oklahoma as an exceptional drought in the second week of October and a large chunk of the state as an extreme drought.

“Last year, the drought wasn’t as extensive as it is this year, as far as area of coverage,” Hodges said. “Last year it didn’t cover eastern Colorado, Nebraska, northern Kansas like it has this year.” Oklahoma received extremely timely rains last October and November, which allowed growers to harvest a “pretty good” wheat crop this summer, Hodges said. “But we still don’t have any subsoil moisture,” he added. “(Rain in November) would be extremely helpful, but historically that is not the normal pattern. It might be a long shot to hope that is what happens.”


Markets can readily consume extra U.S. soybeans BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Keith Menzie was one of the first people to see the new U.S. soybean production estimate, and it was a huge relief. The U.S. Department of Agriculture employee’s job is to take the number provided by the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), go into a locked room with his committee and hash out a balance sheet for the USDA’s monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report. The October number made a lot more sense than September’s, when NASS reduced the average soybean yield to 35.3 bushels per acre from earlier estimates of 40.5 bu. That dramatic yield decline gave him a scant 2.63 billion bu. of soybeans to work with. Menzie was forced to slot in only about one bil-

lion bu. of exports, which made no sense given the sales data he was seeing. Soybeans were flying out the door, suggesting the export number in the September WASDE report should have been much higher, but he simply didn’t have the beans to justify it. Even with his reduced export total, it meant the U.S. would have sold 70 to 80 percent of its exportable soybean supply by the end of September. “That’s completely unprecedented. Usually, you’ve sold about 40 percent of what you’re going to export by the end of September,” said the chief oilseeds analyst with the USDA’s World Agricultural Outlook Board. So he was relieved when NASS increased beginning stocks and harvested acreage and ratcheted up the average yield to 37.8 bu. per acre for the 2012-13 crop when it delivered the numbers to the lock-up at 2 a.m. Oct. 11.

“I had 265 million additional bushels to figure out what to do with this month that I didn’t know I had last month,” said Menzie. “As an analyst, the world fits together better for me now because the sales data was just getting to be hard to deal with.” Soybean prices had dropped before the release of the Oct. 11 WASDE report because markets knew the crop was going to get bigger due to favourable late-season rains. Menzie got even more beans than he bargained for. “That was a little bit of a nice surprise actually, although it was a lot more work because I wasn’t expecting quite that many bushels,” he said. Despite the bigger crop, the November soybean futures contract initially jumped by 25 cents a bu. to $15.49 in the wake of the report as investors learned the newfound production

would be offset by Menzie’s increases in exports and domestic crush. The contract fell by the same amount the following day on news that the weekly export program was smaller than anticipated. More soybeans to work with allowed Menzie to boost his soybean export forecast by 20 percent to 1.27 billion bu.

On-farm grain storage gives farmers options Grain marketing improves | Demise of CWB single desk prompts farmers’ desire to store grain longer BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Increased on-farm storage is giving farmers more marketing options for their grain, say industry officials. Derek Johnson, sales manager of Twister and Grain Guard bins, said there is a trend toward bigger and better storage. “We’re really seeing that transition now, not only to more on-farm storage but more segregated storage for specialty crops and for niche crops and also more large grain bin storage,” he said. Andre Grainger, president of Westeel, said there are a number of reasons for the move toward more on-farm storage. The dissolution of the CWB’s single desk for wheat and barley has had a big impact on sales. Under the monopoly, growers knew what value they were going to get for their wheat and barley. “It doesn’t matter if I wait one month or six months to deliver it, it’s still going to be the same price for this year,” Grainger said, referring to the price pool under the C WB monopoly. Under the open market, growers are equipping themselves with the ability to hold their grain longer to wait for a potential price rally. Grainger also said bins and aeration equipment have become more sophisticated, which allows farmers to keep grain longer without it spoiling. As well, grain farming has been more lucrative the last few years so growers are able to make capital investments on their farms. Westeel sells a lot of 18-foot diameter bins that can store 3,500 bushels of grain. They retail for $10,000 to $12,000. However, there is also a trend toward farmers buying much larger bins. Johnson said a common size on large farms is 48 feet in diameter and nine rings tall, which can hold 55,000 bu. of grain. Johnson estimates a typical farm

can now store three quarters of its annual grain production for up to one full year. “Because of that, (growers) can hold (grain) on farm longer and wait for certain premiums in the marketplace before they sell it,” he said. “Now they’ve got the opportunity to explore all options.” D e r e k S q u a i r, p r e s i d e n t o f Agri-Trend Marketing Inc., advises his clients to have enough bins to store their entire harvest because it gives them more marketing clout. He estimates there has been a 25 percent increase in on-farm storage capacity in the past five to 10 years, not only through more and bigger bins but also through the widespread adoption of storage bags.

grain until February would cost a grower $9 per tonne. Adequate storage also eliminates the headaches of having to deliver grain during harvest, when a large operation may have 20 people working on combines, trucks and augers. “You don’t have time to be hauling grain to the elevator,” said Squair. Alberta Agriculture has produced a document on the pluses and minuses of storing grain. The benefits include avoiding selling grain when prices are at their seasonal lows and basis is widest, avoiding harvest disruptions and lineups at the elevator and helping manage income for tax purposes. The minuses include extra grain handling, increased risk of spoilage,

Squair said the market has been telling growers to build more storage by having a $9 to $10 per tonne carry between futures months. “The market in the last three years has paid a lot for storage.” He said growers will almost always get better prices and basis levels if they wait for a few months instead of marketing their grain straight off the combine. This year might be an anomaly because of the short North American crop and prospects for a huge South American crop early in 2013. Canola basis levels can often improve $40 per tonne for growers who wait until February to sell rather than delivering in September. Storage costs typically amount to $1.80 per tonne per month, so keeping the

theft and fire, an inability to deliver for immediate payment, incurring storage costs and having to deliver during difficult weather. Storage costs include building and maintaining the bins, the opportunity cost of receiving money earlier and using it to pay down debt or invest and the impact of changing basis levels on cash prices. Costs can vary widely depending on a farmer’s circumstances. For instance, they may range from $1.25 per tonne per month for a farmer who is debt-free to $10 per tonne per month for somebody who is financing credit card debt. Johnson said more farmers are also buying bins with aerators, which also increase costs.


India’s subsidy on imported pulses will help its impoverished Increased demand for Canadian pulses expected | Pulses are expensive items for India’s poor, while the country expects a small crop BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

India has doubled its subsidy on imported pulses that are supplied to poor people through the public distribution system. The new subsidy amounts to 37 cents per kilogram of imported pulses. It will be in place until March 31, 2013. The government will decide early in the new year whether it will be extended. Raghavan Sampathkumar, an international market promotion consultant with Saskatchewan Pulse Growers, said it is a big incentive for India’s poor because pulses are one of the most expensive items in their family budgets.

The move was prompted by an expected pulse shortage. India’s food minister is “slightly worried” about kharif (summer) pulse production. India’s department of agriculture estimates kharif pulse production at 5.26 million tonnes, which would be 15 percent below last year’s output and 25 percent below the government’s target. Sampathkumar said doubling the distribution subsidy is a way for the government to keep food price inflation in check. However, there is some doubt whether the subsidy will have its intended impact because the program is fraught with corruption and bribery. Last year, the government unearthed a $223 million scam

related to the subsidy. Sampathkumar thinks the subsidy combined with the strengthening Indian rupee should lead to brisk activity from Indian traders and increased demand for Canadian pulses. Chuck Penner, analyst with LeftField Commodity Research, is more reserved. He said the subsidy applies only to certain states. “I don’t know that it’s going to have a large impact on demand. It will probably have some, but I don’t know how much,” he said. Penner said the rupee has appreciated by six to seven percent against the U.S. dollar over the past two to three weeks, which could have a bigger impact on demand.

“It makes pulses that much more affordable in the country for them to bring them in,” he said. However, he has the sense that India has already bought enough peas and lentils to meet its needs for awhile. “Right now, I don’t think they’re really actively seeking pulses.” Sampathkumar said India’s monsoon season started weak but finished strong, propping up prospects for the rabi (winter) crop, which produces the majority of the country’s annual pulse harvest. The rabi chickpea prospects appear to be good, which will likely keep a cap on demand for Canadian yellow peas. Penner said the late season rains

have enabled Indian farmers to get an early start on their rabi chickpea crop, planting it in ground that wasn’t seeded during the kharif season. “The earlier you get planted the better your odds are of a good crop, just like in Saskatchewan,” he said. Sampathkumar expects to see good demand for Canadian red lentils in the next two to three months because of rising prices for that crop in India. On the flip side, pigeon pea prices have decreased because of the government forecast for a four percent increase in kharif production of that crop and plenty of supply available from Myanmar and Africa. That will make it harder for Canadian green lentils to remain competitive in that market.


With XL Foods still closed last week, fed cattle prices remained under p re s s u re a n d c a rc a s s w e i g h t s climbed. Steers were 904 pounds in the week ending Oct. 6, up from 894 lb. the previous week and 898 lb. last year at the same time. Feedlots aggressively marketed large lots of fed cattle midweek at prices mostly steady to $1 per hundredweight lower than the previous week. Steers averaged $106.34 live for the week, down eight cents, and heifers averaged $105.05, down $1.38. Most of the dressed trade was around $178 per cwt. delivered. Not all cattle offered were sold, and there was carry over. A few formula-priced cattle sold to American buyers, and Saskatchewan saw light cash trade at a terminal market. Total weekly sale volume of 15,832 head was up 15 percent but three percent down from last year. The Alberta cash-to-futures basis widened by $1 to -$16.41. Weekly exports to Sept. 29 were 8,618 head, down nine percent from the previous week. The market will not improve until XL is back to full production. Feedlots and packers were in a faceoff in the United States. Feeders are facing losses of $150-$200 per head and holding out for higher bids.

The steer and heifer average price fell 17 to 20 cents per cwt. With the exception of 300 to 400 pound heifers, all classes of feeders are now trading below year-ago levels. Prices are the lowest of the year and feeding losses have some producers unwilling to take on the financial risk associated with finishing cattle. Short-keep feeders fell $2-$3 last week while mid-weight heifers were steady. Feeders 900 lb. and heavier have fallen $5.50-$6.75 per cwt. over the past two weeks. Reports of cleanup pens of yearlings trading through commercial auction facilities pressured prices. Demand for calves remains strong while light stockers have been trending steady to lower. There is a $18.62 spread between steers weighing 450 lb. at $171.79 per cwt. and those weighing 550 lb at $153.17. It is the widest spread this year. Auction volumes totalled 24,071, up 30 percent from the previous week. Feeder exports to Sept. 29 were 1,784, up 423 from the previous week. Auction volumes are anticipated to increase now because of cooler fall weather and receding grass reserves.

Sellers of non-fed cattle have slowed sales in hope of better prices ahead. Competition from U.S. packers and Canadian producers speculating on feeder cows added modest price support last week. Butcher cows traded generally 25 cents per cwt. higher with D1, D2 cows at $60-$65, averaging $64, and D3s at $50-$65, averaging $56.80. Rail grade cows were $130-$135, up $2. The average bull price rose for the first time in 14 weeks. Weekly exports to Sept. 29 were 5,547, up nine percent from the previous week.

U.S. BEEF STEADY U.S. cut-out values were steady with Choice at $191.31 US and Select at $177.32. Carcass weights in the U.S. are at record highs and are allowing packers to slow slaughter. Slaughter last week was 628,000, down 3.4 percent from last year’s 650,000. Retail beef business is mostly humdrum, but the reduced slaughter levels have helped firm prices. Canadian cut-out values were unavailable because of insufficient data due to XL Foods being unable to participate in the weekly boxed beef survey.

Market focus shifts to demand MARKET WATCH


High prices didn’t kill demand, but prospects for more rallies are limited


he rally following the U.S. Department of Agriculture supply and demand report Oct. 11 was a one day wonder. There might be some minor revisions to grain supply in future reports, particularly in wheat, but the USDA October report marks the point where the narrative in the market shifts from a supply focus to a concentration on demand. Here are a few of the USDA’s numbers. It pegged the U.S. corn crop at 10.7 billion bushels, above analysts’ average pre-report estimate. However, the USDA also reduced its corn carry-in amount, reducing the total amount available and keeping its domestic demand fairly steady. The net result was a forecast for year-end stocks of only 619 million

bu., less than what traders expected. It was a similar story in soybeans, with the USDA increasing the crop estimate but reducing the year-end stocks forecast because it thinks the market will easily absorb a slight increase in U.S production. Essentially, the USDA said that there is still good demand despite high grain prices. The next day, the department reported weekly export figures that showed almost no corn exports. There was also talk that American livestock feeders had signed a deal to import Argentine corn. So the market thinking shifted. There might be good demand at high prices as the USDA indicated, but the sky is not the limit. If prices get too high, demand for American corn will fall off and foreign corn will come into the country. The story in soybeans, and for canola prices because of the close connection between the two oilseeds, will also be demand. U.S. soybeans are the only game in town until the South American crop is harvested next year. China will buy and the price will be supported. If demand increases significantly, the price could rally by a dollar or so but then retreat again. Downward pressure will mount if, as it appears now, Brazil and Argentina harvest record breaking crops. In wheat, the story is not all about demand. There is still a supply story

in the deteriorating condition of the Australian crop. The USDA lowered its Australian forecast three million tonnes to 23 million, but that is likely generous. The department’s 11.5 million tonne forecast for Argentine wheat might also be high. Investment bank Goldman Sachs estimates the Australian crop at 21 million tonnes. The Buenos Aires grains exchange last week pegged the Argentine wheat crop at 10.12 million tonnes, noting that excess rain in key growing area had flooded fields. The USDA lowered world ending stocks to 173 million tonnes from the September forecast of 176.71tonnes, and in future reports might have to lower production and ending stocks again. Stocks at the end of 2011-12 were 198.17 million tonnes. Exports from the Black Sea region are expected to fall off in November as the exportable surplus runs out. The prospects from Australia and Argentina are dimming a little as buyers look for alternative sources of supply, meaning North American wheat producers should see good demand for their grain. But again, optimism must be tempered with evidence of a slowing global economy that will weigh on all commodity markets. Follow D’Arce McMillan on Twitter @darcemcmillan.

WP LIVESTOCK REPORT CASH HOGS STEADY Improving pork prices and packer margins kept U.S. cash hog prices steady. Chicago hog futures rose for the fifth consecutive week, climbing 1.8 percent. Retail features associated with National Pork Month in October are helping demand. U.S. pork exports to the end of August were running nine percent ahead of last year, but in August alone they were down about three percent from the same month last year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture expects U.S. pork production will be up 2.4 percent this year and down 1.3 percent next year. The average live weight barrow and gilt in the week ending Oct. 5 was 271.3 pounds, up 2.1 lb. from the previous week but down 1.4 lb. from the same time last year. Iowa-southern Minnesota hogs spent the week between $60 and $61 US per hundredweight and ended at that level Oct. 12, steady with the close Oct. 5.






The U.S. composite pork carcass cut-out value was $87.03 Oct. 12, up from $84.27 Oct. 5. U.S. slaughter for the week rose to 2.396 million, up from 2.355 million the previous week and up from 2.318 million a year ago.

BISON STEADY The Canadian Bison Association said grade A bulls in the desirable weight range were $3.60-$3.90 per pound hot hanging weight. Grade A heifers were $3.50-$3.80. Animals older than 30 months and those outside the desirable weight range may be discounted. Slaughter cows and bulls ranged from $1.60-2.50. In the live market, yearlings ranged from $1.80-$2.10 depending on quality.

LAMBS EDGE HIGHER Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported 916 sheep and lambs and 30 goats traded Oct. 9. All lambs sold steady to slightly higher. Sheep and goats sold steady.

Questions, concerns at XL show need for inquiry


he fallout from the largest beef recall in Canadian history continues with signs of confusion emanating from decision makers overseeing the XL Foods beef plant in Brooks, Alta. At press time, the plant remained closed. But last week’s layoff of 2,000 workers, then the recall of 800 just a day later, sends a loud and clear message that all is not well. Even if food safety tests currently being conducted at the Brooks slaughter plant come back clean, and beef from the factory started to move to the public again, we should not consider the matter closed. A public inquiry presents the public with the best chance of finding answers to key questions about the XL situation in particular and the beef processing industry as a whole. Among the questions to be answered are what happened, when, and how the Canadian food safety system rates in protecting public safety. To date, 12 human cases of E. coli O157:H7 illnesses have been tracked to the XL plant. In the early days of the outbreak, serious questions arose about XL Foods failing to provide timely information to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. The first positive tests for E. coli contamination in Canadian beef were reported in the United States Sept. 4, but the recalls were not initiated in Canada until Sept. 16. The CFIA blames XL for delays in passing along information. Although legislation is now before Parliament designed to close this loophole, accountability failings of this magnitude must be laid bare. Officials and the public need to know how it happened. The situation at XL itself, and whether it was adhering to proper food handling protocols, is key information for the inquiry to assess, but the lessons learned would have far-reaching implications for the broader industry as well. Questions to address are many. Were proper protocols followed? What went wrong and what can be done to ensure

mistakes are not repeated? And broader still are serious questions about plant size. Is a beef processing plant that slaughters 4,000 cattle per day too large to allow for adequate safety controls? Is the line speed too fast? How many employees are optimal at key points in the production chain? Were the 40 inspectors and six veterinarians at the plant enough? Are there enough inspectors properly situated on the floor at critical points? How could they be better deployed? Are there equipment issues that can be addressed in new ways with new technologies? Canada produces far more beef than it can consume domestically. That makes size efficiencies critical if Canadian processors are to compete against large companies in the U.S. A public inquiry that includes a review and analysis of industry practices may offer much-needed solutions. For one, is there a production sweet spot where plant efficiencies, output and food safety meet? In addition, concentration of ownership in the Canadian beef slaughter industry has never been properly studied. Two companies, XL and Cargill, own almost all of Canada’s beef slaughter capacity. This is not to suggest we set up a witch hunt commission designed to condemn Canada’s beef processing sector, which has served millions of people safely for decades. But today’s extensive distribution networks and the potential that creates for massive food safety issues have not been adequately researched and discussed. Nor has the contention by some that smaller plants are inherently safer. The XL Foods incident shouldn’t be viewed as a singular event. We must seize the chance to improve, condemn or confirm the safety of our beef processing system. Public confidence and a healthy processing sector to serve western Canadian producers may well depend on it.

Lots of meaty issues for Commons ag committee to tackle — if it wanted to NATIONAL VIEW



s it finishes (yawn) its long awaited report on the agricultural value chain, the House of Commons agriculture committee is looking for a new purpose. There are many relevant issues to take up with a concise set of focused hearings and a report produced before the issue is history, but here is a modest proposal for the hardworking MPs on the committee.

How is the Canadian Food Inspection Agency doing, does it have the right mandate, does it have enough funding and staffing, is there too much public, political and media attention on inspectors on the food line and not enough on the processes CFIA administers? Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz has promised a review of the sorry XL episode through his internally appointed food safety advisory committee, vowing its report will be made public. That falls far short of what is necessary as consumers hear wild claims from union accusers and political opponents and questionable defences from government defenders like Ritz. So more light needs to be shone on this issue of food safety for the sake of the 33 million consumers who do not live on the farm.

First, I would recommend a rather public review by the fictional Food System Crisis Management Communications Committee (FSCMCC) about how not to handle a food safety crisis. It might be called the Nilsson/ Ritz/CFIA paradigm of what not to do. Secondly, I would suggest the Commons agriculture committee dedicate itself to this issue, quickly and decisively. Conservative members, set aside your government ass-covering tendency; opposition members, forget exaggerated attacks about Ritz being indifferent to food safety or food inspection being turned over to the companies and bore down on the facts. The opposition in the House of Commons is calling for Ritz to resign. That is not going to happen.

The opposition is calling for Ritz to call an open-ended public inquiry into the XL episode and the government culpability in the affair. That is not going to happen. But there is a parliamentary body that actually could conduct a public inquiry. It is called the House of Commons Standing Committee on Agriculture and it has the full power to call witnesses, to compel witnesses to appear, to demand documents and reach whatever conclusions it wants with a demand that the government respond within 45 days. Who knew? So here are the questions it could demand of witnesses: • Is our food safety system robust and credible or is it flawed? • What are the CFIA staffing levels, where are the inspectors, are they

front line, have government cuts hurt, are companies self-regulating and can consumers really count on CFIA inspections to guarantee safe food on the shelves? • Should the CFIA, which has a role of both inspecting and promoting Canadian food safety, be part of Agriculture Canada or Health Canada? Is there a conflict now? The Conservatives argue that new food safety legislation is the answer. From a consumer listening to wildly divergent claims including union allegations of unsafe and dirty plants and workers pushed too hard to ensure proper handling, new legislation is not reassuring. The Commons agriculture committee could set aside its partisan divisions and bore into this. If it wanted to.





GF2 reshapes public policy, but at a cost

Communication a rural hightech headache



armers and the general public should be seriously pondering the long-term effects of the federal-provincial-territorial Whitehorse agreement on Growing Forward 2 signed last month. As producers get over the initial shock of the obvious — the realization that the government consultation process was nothing more than window dressing, that the new AgriStability program is only going to provide half the protection as the present one, and that AgriInvest has been chopped by one-third — a picture is beginning to emerge in my mind of what the future may hold. Primary production is a risky business — but an absolutely necessary one — and governments in the past have long recognized this. Even the most astute farmer cannot prepare for the consequences of bad weather, commodity price drops, or trade issues — and government programming has evolved over the years to try and mitigate the effects of these problems so that food production in our country could remain strong. I am concerned about what will happen when the current high grain prices cycle back down (as they always do), or when floods, drought or the effects of climate change threaten to put many producers out of business. I fear there will be no effective backstop that will keep farmers in the business of producing food.Business risk management programming was that backstop. But now, governments have decided that BRM programs, AgriStability in particular, mask market signals and

FARM DEBT OVER THE YEARS Canadian farm debt has risen by more than 105 percent since 1998. Outstanding farm debt ($billions): 1998 33.895 2000 38.819 2002 43.855 2004 48.900 2006 52.288 2008 59.090 2010 65.484 2011 69.616 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 Source: Statistics Canada | WP GRAPHICS

inhibit innovation. The new Growing Forward 2 framework, with its undefined plan to drive innovation and competitiveness at the cost of less BRM support, fails to explain how innovation and competitiveness could serve an industry experiencing distress. Investing in research and development that farmers might not be able to adopt due to financial uncertainty doesn’t get the industry further ahead. Instead, we could be looking at a decline in primary agricultural production that may well leave Canadians wondering how to access a safe,

secure food supply. Some industry observers would have the public believe that farmers were getting rich on AgriStability — buying up land, new machinery, and new buildings — and making more money than most other Canadians. In fact, it is the need to remain competitive in an ever-changing marketplace that has necessitated an i n c re a s e i n f a r m s c a l e a n d a n embracing of new technology and productivity, which require significant investment by farmers. Suggesting that this somehow makes them rich shows a lack of understanding of

primary production; suggesting this can be done through AgriStability is quite preposterous. Canadian farm debt numbers speak loudly to this issue of farmer investment. Farm debt has risen to more than $66 billion, according to Statistics Canada 2010 data. Anyone who has been enrolled in AgriStability can tell you that when qualifying for a payment, there is no financial flexibility to start expanding the farm. It is usually a case of survival to the next production cycle and a hope of restoring profitability. Furthermore, consecutive years of declining margins, as has happened before in crop production and is happening now in livestock production, gives farmers almost no protection, let alone allowing for unnecessary expenditures.Producers and farm groups knew that revisions were coming to the AgriStability program, and we were hoping that we could work with governments to make it more effective for us and more palatable for them. Our young farmers were counting on a commitment to these principles. Instead, they got a gutted program that is about nothing more than pulling supports in the interest of budget cutting. Farmers and all Canadians need assurances that public policy will reflect the critical importance of food production and food producers in this country. A safe, secure food supply and the one-in-eight jobs linked to the agrifood industry are riding on it. Doug Chorney is president of Keystone Agricultural Producers.

Ranking crops by profitability yields surprises HURSH ON AG


Net returns haven’t turned out the way many people expected last spring


here are some surprises in the profitability of this year’s crops. Flax is more profitable than canola, and lentil returns are in the basement along with barley and oats. Every farm has different numbers: different yields, different costs and often a different selling price. But if you use aggregate numbers, it’s possible to rank crops according to profitability.

The Saskatchewan agriculture ministry publishes a crop planning guide each January. It has well-reasoned costing estimates for a wide variety of cropping choices, from fertilizer to land investment. Costs from the dark brown soil zone were used to perform this profitability comparison. Statistics Canada recently released new crop production estimates. While yields vary from one province to another, let’s use average Saskatchewan yields since we’re using Saskatchewan expense numbers. Crop prices can vary dramatically from one day to the next, but I tried to use reasonable assumptions based on information from buyers and brokers. According to Statistics Canada, the average yield of canola in Saskatchewan was only 25 bushels per acre this year. Assuming a price of $13.50 per bushel picked up on the farm and subtracting total rotational expenses of $268 an acre, you’re left with a return of roughly $70 an acre. The average yield of flax in the prov-

ince is estimated at 21.6 bu. per acre. Assuming a price of $14.25 per bu. and total expenses of $199 an acre, the return is $109 an acre. Although the gross return from flax is lower than canola, expenses are also lower, leading to a larger net return. Some producers have long claimed that they can make more money with flax than canola. This year, the numbers for Saskatchewan indicate that is indeed the case. The big equalizer is the disappointing canola yield. Canola profitability would pull ahead of flax if canola yields were three or four bu. better. While canola is still one of the top crops for profitability, lentils have gone from one of the most profitable to one of the least lucrative. Statistics Canada pegs average lentil yields at 1,296 pounds per acre. Assuming a price of 20 cents a lb. and subtracting production costs of $230 an acre leaves a return of just $29 an acre. That’s in the same bottom tier as barley and oats. Barley yielded an average of 49.2 bu. per acre and feed barley picked up on

the farm in Saskatchewan is worth about $5.20 per bu. Some areas are higher and some lower, depending on freight costs. Meanwhile, oats averaged 76.2 bu. per acre and the price assumption is $3.25 per bu. With costs at $231 an acre for barley and $221 an acre for oats, these crops come out with net returns of $25 to $27 an acre. It’s interesting to note that field peas are more profitable than lentils this year. With an average yield of 28.7 bu. per acre and assuming a price of $8.25, the net return pencils in at $56 an acre. If you look at spring wheat (35.1 bu. per acre) and durum (33.9 bu. per acre) and assume a price for both of around $8 per bu., the net return for durum is $41 an acre while spring wheat is $55. That’s respectable compared to the other options. All the crops are money makers, but net returns haven’t turned out the way most expected in the spring.

always think I’m funny when demonstrating how I use my cellphone at the cabin. I stand on one foot, lean waaay out to the right, and pretend to scream into the device while precariously perching on the edge of the deck. I admit I’m over-dramatizing the situation somewhat, but not by much. Sometimes, all the leaning and perching and screaming does exactly fiddly. If there’s no reception, there’s no reception. Having no cellphone reception was not funny at all in southeastern Manitoba recently, when people were fleeing wildfires but could not call for help. The Rural Municipality of Piney, by all news and political accounts, has had bad or even non-existent service for years. A CBC story noted that Manitoba emergency experts have warned about the poor cellular coverage for over a decade, if you can imagine. This reminds me of a story told by a student at the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, where I once worked. Not having his permission to repeat this, I will explain that he hailed from a tiny, mountainous, poor country in the middle of the Asian continent. Every person in every village had a cellphone. It was cheap, and it worked. The student, quite rightly, laughed at the expensive Canadian cellphone scene, with elusive range outside the main cities. Even in the cities, coverage can be interesting. Try using certain providers from your basement, and good luck. Then, of course, there is the quite remarkable situation SaskTel finds itself in. While it suddenly received a reprieve, it looked for a while like SaskTel would be abandoning its high-speed service to about 8,000 rural customers. Wireless service was to be discontinued by the end of 2012 because of a reallocation of broadband spect r u m by In d u s t r y Ca na d a a n d replaced by more expensive and less nimble service that also required the purchase of new hardware. SaskTel now has until March 31, 2014, to solve its rural wireless issues. Sadly, I’m a bit of a tech idiot and cannot offer brilliant solutions. But greater minds than mine must solve Canada’s high-tech problems. Governments talk ceaselessly about innovation, modern economies, better productivity and treating its rural citizens like real citizens. Between policy and industry regulation, it’s time they walk the talk or stop squawking about Canada being a nation connected to this century.

Re: Time to increase farmland ownership transparency (WP editorial Sept. 27) The problem: Older Saskatchewan farmers, having worked hard all their lives, are retiring in comfort by selling their land to buyers from outside Saskatchewan for more money than they expected. Young ambitious Saskatchewan farmers, armed with solid agronomic knowledge and complex farm equipment, find themselves with extra cash they didn’t have to use to buy farmland, negotiating leases with the new outside investors who know lit-

tle about farming and are eager to do business with local expert tenants like them. They also chuckle a little knowing that, eventually, the Bank of Canada will stop printing money and let interest rates go to the free market level at which point land prices will fall and they will pick up lots of bargains. The solution: Forget the free market. Outside buyers must transparently show the government where they got all that money that they’re too willing to hand over to those happy sellers. If it turns out that any of that money came from “outside,” then the deal’s off. This will force those greedy oldsters to sell their land to the smaller pool of

young “inside” people, and then their retirement won’t be so comfortable. The Western Producer seems to feel very strongly about “outside” money (bad) vs. “inside” money (good). But what should one of your heroic young farmers do when an outsider wants to trade a pile of cash in advance for his future piles of wheat? Won’t he then be holding evil “outside” money that he is barred from using to buy dear Saskatchewan land? Or is the “outside” money only off-limits if it comes from a bread factory owner in Hong Kong and not Alberta? “But, dear reader,” you might respond, “you sound crazy. The born

and raised Saskatchewan farmer is always free to buy all the Saskatchewan land he wants no matter how he gets the money. Even if rich Albertan investors buy every last acre in the province, that is perfectly OK. But if that Hong Kong bread factory owner lays claim to more than 10 acres, then the long arm of the law must intervene. Can’t you see how wise this law is? Can’t you see how wise it is not to let buyers and sellers alone?” No, I can’t. Here’s my crazy idea: laissez-faire. Arthur Krolman, CFA, Calgary, Alta.

BIG MISTAKE To the Editor: Selling Alberta’s natural resources (oil and gas) to communist China would be an enormous mistake, larger than (former prime ministerPierre) Trudeau’s National Energy Program. A better idea would be for Nexen Oil Inc. of Calgary to sell shares to Alberta citizens, as the Social Credit party proposes. This would retain Canadian ownership, as well as the continuation of Alberta in Confederation. We would also have severe problems with our American friends if foreign communists owned property in Alberta. Ed Storsuk, St. George, Man.

Re: Wal-Mart in fields searching for greener farming ideas (WP, Sept. 6), coupled with (columnist) Randall Denley’s Stop feeling sorry for the farmers (Ottawa Citizen, Aug. 16) and Why do farmers have special deals? (Edmonton Journal, Aug. 18). Wal-Mart (U.S.) and Denley (Ottawa) will solve farmers’ problems — Wal-Mart, by “using its commercial muscle” to get flour and wheat products to their shelves more efficiently; Denley, by assuring us farmers “get nearly 100 percent coverage” crop insurance payouts, and that the federal government is “still interested in spending lots of money” on us. Despite (Robert) Kaplan (Wal-Mart sustainability manager) admitting that he had never even “seen a wheat field before” prior to their “greener farming ideas” venture, Wal-Mart will show farmers how to reduce use of fertilizer and “improve logistics” to inject “efficiency into the generations old practices of U.S. farmers,” and to “eliminate 20 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions — by the end of 2015.” Denley claims farmers, “an effective lobby group,” have the “political clout” to access billions of Canadians’ tax dollars, to get “nearly 100 percent coverage” crop insurance payouts. Denley quips that existing farm support programs give “new meaning to the term cash crop,” which I suppose might be true for former MLA (Ray) Danyluk, an Elk Point farmer, who apparently claimed $1.3 million in




payouts over 10 consecutive years while sitting in the legislature; e.g. $700,000 in AFSC payouts on $101,000 premiums in a four year period. As Wal-Mart, with its “ruthless efficiency,� rides to farmers’ rescue by targeting fertilizer use and wheat fields, and Denley proclaims continued (100 percent) crop protection payouts, farmers can rest assured that they are in good hands. Wal-Mart’s further simplistic solutions include Wal-Mart as “an expert in transportation� being able to “find empty trucks� to ship farmer produce more cheaply. With these sorts of news-breaking good news stories, farmers can rest easy — and the Producer might shortly run out of topics for future editions. Marion Leithead, Bawlf, Alta.

Farm auctions cause trauma

Now Registered in Flax, Field Peas, Chickpeas and Sunowers




or many people, a farm auction is so painful they can’t bring themselves to talk about it. Yet what better way to downsize equipment and household goods and get ready to move from the land? Equipment that has been carefully maintained has got the farmer through year after year of planting and reaping. Its owner feels a certain connectedness, but outside auctiongoers are only interested in who can grab the lowest bid. Household items that carry memories from relatives long since gone, or of the table made in the 1930s from the packing crate that the stove came in — these associations are of little significance to others. How wonderful to have neighbours lend their support in the cleaning and organizing. To have the ladies serve their hamburgers and homemade pies, to have the oldsters sit together offering their affirmation that what you are doing is right and good all means so much. Far m auctions can be sacred moments as they mark endings and changes in the community. Hopefully a new family will come, but too often the place is left empty as this piece of land is added to what is already there. There are memories that make us smile — like the lady who wanted the calendar on the kitchen wall.  It was of Christ the good shepherd. Her husband was a sheepherder and she knew he would like that picture. Of course mom gave it to her. At the end of the day, the retiring family take their helpful neighbours to town for dinner at the restaurant — this by way of saying thanks. Everyone is exhausted physically and spiritually, but tomorrow will come. And tomorrow we will get on with the rest of our lives.

Southern Alberta dam marks 20th birthday Oldman River Dam | Three rivers flow through dam and downstream to Alberta’s irrigation district BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

PINCHER CREEK, Alta. — The Oldman River Dam would cost $900 million it if were built today. Now celebrating its 20th anniversary of full operation, the dam cost $353 million in 1986 dollars, the year construction began on the project. The reservoir and dam trap water flow from three rivers — the Oldman, the Castle and the Crowsnest. With a capacity of 400,000 acre feet, or 495 million cubic metres, the earth-filled dam is the largest of its kind in Alberta, said operations supervisor Robert Plante, who gave an overview of operations Oct. 12 to a tour organized by the Lethbridgebased Oldman Watershed Council. Sixty-five percent of annual watershed accumulation flows through this river valley from mid May to mid July, said Plante. Capturing the water allows it to be used by downstream irrigation districts during the growing season. “The idea was to impound the water when it was not needed and use that water when it was needed most, July through September, irrigation time,” said Plante. The Lethbridge Northern Irrigation District is a primary user of water released from the reservoir. It sup-

plies 220,000 acres of farmland with irrigation water. Downstream municipalities and cities also use the water, and interprovincial agreements require a certain amount to pass into Saskatchewan. Plante said the Oldman dam has three main components: spillway,

earth-filled dam and diversion tunnels. Power generation through one of the tunnels is managed by Atco, an Alberta utility company. The company generates 32 megawatts of hydro power from 60 cubic metres per second of flow through one tunnel, said Plante. The other tunnel has 100 cubic

metres of capacity, for a combined 160 cubic metres per second if both tunnels are running wide open. The spillway comes into use if more water than that must be released downstream. It can pass up to 8,400 cubic metres per second at full bore. Water release and storage are dictated by the amount of snow pack in

the nearby mountains each year, said Plante. Rainfall plays a major role in accumulations, but it is unpredictable. Operators will start filling the reservoir early in years of low snow pack to ensure enough capacity for downstream users in summer. However, major rainfall in spring can wreak havoc with those plans. “No matter what you do, you’re going to be wrong because you can’t predict rain and you can’t predict how much,” said Plante. There are also specific mandates on water release, he added. “We cannot pass at any time more water out than what’s flowing in. We have to operate as if we were never here.” As well, he said under no circumstances should the dam create flooding. Outflow should equal inflow, which is constantly monitored. The minimum flow requirement in winter is 6.5 cubic metres per second, and Plante said flow is nearing that now. That rate is required from November to March. In the remaining months, a percentage of natural flow is required to pass through. The dam has an expected lifespan of 200 years, said Plante. Various technological instruments monitor pore pressure in the dam and seepage in the abutments.



Growing pains | Co-ops require more than member financing: official OTTAWA BUREAU

QUEBEC CIT Y — The billionmember worldwide co-operative movement must reconsider funding sources as co-ops look for financing to fuel the growth they need, says a groundbreaking international study. But it will be a delicate balance for co-ops between continuing to serve the needs of their members and their social economy values, while making investment returns attractive enough for outside money interests. “Within the co-operative movement, there is an increasing prioritization on access to capital,” Chris Harvey, global financial services sector leader for financial service firm Deloitte, told an international cooperatives summit held here Oct. 11. “This has become increasingly significant and difficult for cooperatives since the financial crisis (2008-09).” He presented a report “Funding the Future,” commissioned by the first international co-ops summit, that warned the traditional co-operative financing model of depending on member equity and investment plus debt financing no longer is sufficient or viable. “The co-operative business model, while offering the advantages of access to member financing and often impressive customer loyalty,

introduces a number of challenges in an uncertain, highly regulated economic environment,” said the report. “Co-operatives must be true to their mission as they seek to achieve the greater financial flexibility needed to drive growth and compete successfully.” The Deloitte study included a survey of senior officials at 36 large coops around the world. Eighty-seven percent said they expected to have difficulty in the future finding funds for growth and half said they “expect to use nontraditional instruments to meet their financing needs.” The report said money funds that are nervous about low-returning investments since the financial meltdown are a particular problem for financial co-ops. Many co-op leaders said they are uncertain about being able to deal with another financial crisis. “The concern is especially prevalent in the capital-intensive agricultural sector and the financial marketdependent banking and insurance sectors.” Yet Harvey said the larger co-ops, which are anxious to grow and compete, have no option but to begin considering how to engage with nonco-operative capital funds, whether it is through more creative debt financing arrangements or develop-

ment of a way to allow outside investors to buy shares without compromising the positions of loyal members. “There comes a point in the growth of every co-operative when your members can no longer fund the growth needed or are not willing to do so,” he told a news conference after presenting his report to the summit, which attracted 2,000 delegates from around the world. “This really is one of the most critical and toughest issues facing the movement.” It is an issue that Canadian cooperatives have struggled with for years. Part of their proposed solution has been to lobby for a co-op investment tax credit to attract funds. Harvey said one of the most promising and innovative proposals is to develop a system of “hybrid shares” that could attract outside investors and co-op members alike. But it would be a delicate balance between the traditional investor expectation of strong and rapid return on investment and the traditional co-op philosophy of lower returns but long-term services to members and society. “It will require education, including making the argument that shorttermism hasn’t served capitalism all that well,” said Harvey.

Leaders look to improve movement’s influence BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

QUEBEC CITY — International co-operative sector leaders met with managers of the world economy in Tokyo last weekend to demand some respect and a voice for their movement. At a meeting of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, International Co-operative Alliance president Dame Pauline Green made a pitch for a co-operative seat at world financial tables. “We are seeking a seat at the table,” she told an Oct. 11 news conference during the first international cooperatives summit in Quebec City. “We are an important part of the global economy and yet at the moment, our voice is totally missing.” However, a statement from the IMF/World Bank meeting Oct. 13 made no reference to the co-op movement or the call for a seat at future meetings. “There is a need to secure a sustained recovery from the crisis,” said an IMF statement from the meeting. “The implementation of credible medium-term fiscal consolidation plans remains critical in many advanced economies. Fiscal policy should be appropriately calibrated to be as growth-friendly as possible.”

Green said the focus on traditional government financial instruments that stimulate traditional market forces ignores the huge potential of the co-operative movement. “Co-operatives are a viable solution to some of the world’s economic problems,” she said. At the end of the co-operative summit, a co-op declaration was issued to buttress the argument that the sector should be recognized as a significant world economic player. It said the global co-operative sector generates close to $2 trillion in revenues and employs 100 million people, but receives little respect from managers of the world economy. “It is undeniable that considered as a whole, co-operative and mutual businesses represent a social, human and economic powerhouse,” said the declaration. “But efforts must be made to ensure they gain greater political clout. Important decisions are being made around the world with no consideration of the co-operative movement’s distinctiveness.” During the end-of-summit news conference, Desjardins Group president Monique Leroux said the summit and the declaration created momentum for the movement. “It is time to claim our rightful place as an economic force,” she said.





MCEC urges producer patience despite delays Cattle slaughter | Producers losing confidence in council’s ability to expand processing in province Western Producer Brandon reporter Robert Arnason looks at the Manitoba Cattle Enhancement Council and the growing producer frustration over its inability to bring a cattle slaughter plant to the province. The report continues on pages 17-19. Manitoba Beef Producers voted almost 12 months ago to end a checkoff that funds the Manitoba Cattle Enhancement Council, which is mandated to expand beef processing in the province. Cattle producers in Manitoba have grown increasingly frustrated with the checkoff since that resolution was passed in November, said MBP general manager Cam Dahl. He said many producers have lost confidence in MCEC and don’t believe the council will ever build a 250 to 500 head per day slaughter p l a nt i n Wi n n i p e g , w h i c h ha s remained on the drawing board since 2008. However, the resolution and the related negative opinions represent a small faction of Manitoba cattle producers, said a MCEC spokesperson “From our point of view, this is not the time to circle the wagons and start firing inward. This is a project that will be good for the industry,” said Adam Dooley, communications manager for MCEC and ProNatur,

the name of the proposed slaughter plant. MCEC, which is funded by a voluntary $2 per head levy and matching funds from the province, bought a former Maple Leaf Foods hog plant in Winnipeg in 2008. It plans to turn the site into a processing plant that will produce halal and kosher beef. It was scheduled to open in 2010, b u t M C E C s t i l l h a s n ’ t b ro k e n ground. It hasn’t found individuals or companies willing to invest in the $40 million plant. Given the delay, producer frustration is understandable, Dooley said. “We never expected it ourselves to take this long.” Ho w e v e r, h e s a i d p ro d u c e r s shouldn’t give up on the Winnipeg plant because Manitoba desperately needs a federally inspected beef processor. “I think we can all agree there are many things that the industry needs. One of the most important is, without a doubt, local beef slaughter capacity.”

Manitoba cattle producers earn $130 less per fed steer than ranchers in Alberta because of transportation and marketing costs, he added. Dooley insisted that ProNatur is economically sound. “We have multiple customers that have signed a letter of intent. One customer has signed a letter of intent to take 100 percent of the production from this plant. So if anyone is doubting the viability of this plant, or whether there is actual market demand for it, that should answer the question.” Construction may begin shortly if MCEC finalizes a couple of deals with potential investors, he added. Dooley said MCEC statistics indicate Manitoba cattle producers do support the council: only 15 percent of Manitoba’s 8,700 cattle producers requested a check-off refund in 2010. However, the statistics also indicate that MCEC refunds 30 to 40 percent of the checkoff each year. “What that tells us is that there are some large individual operations that are requesting refunds,” Dooley said. “But the vast majority of producers are not.” Kelly Penner, a rancher from Douglas, Man., was president of the proposed beef slaughter plant in the late 2000s when the project was known as Keystone Processors. Penner said Manitoba needs a beef processor, but

Plans for a beef processing plant, which at one time was expected to open in Winnipeg in 2010, have stalled. | FILE PHOTO ProNatur is flawed because the provincial government is running the project. Private enterprise and cattle producers with expertise in the slaughter trade have little or no say in the proposed plant. Barry Todd, Manitoba’s deputy agriculture minster, is chair of MCEC. However, Dooley said portraying MCEC and ProNatur in that light is inaccurate. “Let me be categorical: this is not a provincial government project and it never has been.” Producers have also criticized

MCEC for its levy refund policies. People in Manitoba’s beef industry said council staff have obstructed the refund process over the last year by removing the refund form from the MCEC website and making the paperwork difficult for producers seeking a refund. “We have no knowledge, whatsoever, of any website interruption,” Dooley said. “We take the refund system very, very seriously. And from our point of view, there is no truth to these accusations that we’re deliberately obstructing refunds.”





Producers tire of cattle plant promises ‘Enough is enough’ | Producers say they are tired of seeing checkoff money go to waste BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

As far as Jim Murray is concerned, the likelihood of a cattle slaughter plant being built in Winnipeg is about the same as Manitoba replacing Mexico as the most popular winter holiday destination in North America. “My opinion is that they’ll never kill an animal. They’ll never build a plant where they will kill an animal,” said Murray, a cattle producer from Portage la Prairie, Man. The “they” in Murray’s comment is the Manitoba Cattle Enhancement Council (MCEC), an organization with the mandate of expanding cattle slaughter in Manitoba. From 2006 to the end of 2011, cattle producers in the province have contributed approximately $5 million in check-off dollars to MCEC. But after six years of paying a levy of $2 per head on every animal they sell, many, or possibly most cattle ranchers in the province, feel the same way as Murray. In fact, MCEC checkoff has become

Producers are not likely to see a Manitoba cattle slaughter plant buying cattle at auction anytime soon, according to many cattle producers. | FILE PHOTO a running joke among cattle producers. Many call it the “Rosann tax” — a reference to Manitoba’s former agriculture minister Rosann Wowchuk, one of the chief architects of the council. While some producers openly mock MCEC, others that once supported it have lost faith because the council has failed to deliver a long-promised

slaughter plant in Winnipeg. “They might as well close their doors…. It’s gone (on) for six years and they haven’t done anything,” Murray said. Supported by the $2 producer levy and a matching $2 levy from Manitoba taxpayers, the council was supposed to finance the construction of new plants, or the expansion of exist-

ing slaughter facilities in the province. The Manitoba government created the council in 2006 as a response to BSE and the related crisis in the Canadian cattle industry. Manitoba didn’t have a federally inspected cattle slaughter plant and MCEC set out to fill that void. More than a year after its inception, the council invested in its first and

what would become its most controversial project. In 2007, MCEC committed $1.2 million to the proponents of Natural Prairie Beef, a group of Manitoba cattle producers who wanted to build a slaughter plant for animals raised without growth hormones and minimal antibiotics. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

In July 2008, Natural Prairie Beef announced it had purchased a former Maple Leaf Foods hog processing plant in Winnipeg, with the intent of refitting it for beef slaughter. MCEC committed an additional $1.2 million to support the purchase, increasing its investment in Natural Prairie Beef to $2.4 million. The leaders of MCEC and Natural Prairie said the converted facility would be a federally inspected plant called Keystone Processors, which would process 250 to 500 head of cattle per day by 2010. The odds of Natural Prairie Beef succeeding increased in summer 2009 when the federal government announced a $50 million loan program to increase slaughter capacity in regions, like Manitoba, that lacked federally inspected facilities. But the plans began to go off the

rails in the fall of 2009 when Barry Todd, Manitoba’s deputy agriculture minister, became chair of MCEC, said Kelly Penner, the former president and chief executive officer of Natural Prairie Beef. “That was the signal that this thing wasn’t going to make it,” said Penner, a cattle producer from Douglas, Man. The council was supposed operate at arm’s length from government and the appointees who initially managed MCEC knew their role was to support private enterprise, not to run the show, Penner said. Only a few days after Todd took over as chair, Ottawa announced a loan of $10 million to help build the $30 million Keystone Processors plant. As well, MCEC committed an additional $7.5 million to the plant. With that kind of taxpayer and producer dollars at stake, the provincial government wanted more control over the project, which is why the

deputy minister of agriculture slid into the role of MCEC chair. Once that happened, Keystone Processors was no longer a partnership between Natural Prairie Beef and MCEC. It became a provincial government project, Penner said. “It turned so political after that $10 million announcement,” he said. “We (Natural Prairie) had the respect of both levels of government because it was viewed as a private entity…. Then all of the sudden the MCEC steps in and (starts to) manage it.” The Western Producer requested an inter view with Todd regarding MCEC but he wasn’t immediately available. Not long after Todd’s appointment, Penner resigned from Natural Prairie Beef and Keystone Processors. His feeling that the project would unravel came to fruition in July 2011. Citing deficiencies in the business plan, the federal government pulled

its $10 million loan to Keystone Processors. Shelly Glover, a Conservative MP from Winnipeg, said the original plan was to renovate the Maple Leaf Foods hog plant. However, the leaders of Keystone Processors demolished the facility and planned to build from scratch.

Despite the loss of the loan, the MCEC vowed to press on and began seeking replacement investors in the slaughter plant project, which was renamed ProNatur in the fall of 2011. The rebranding hasn’t helped because Manitoba cattle producers have grown weary of MCEC’s familiar refrain: that it continues to search for investors and it might break ground on the new plant in 30 to 90 days. “It’s ridiculous…. There is absolutely nothing to show what they’re taking our money for,” said Don Winnicky, a cattle rancher from Piney, Man. “(This summer) I happened to drive past where their proposed plant is supposed to be. It’s just a parking lot. There’s nothing there.” This summer, producers in southeastern Manitoba suffered through extremely dry conditions and dozens will have to buy hay to feed their animals this winter. Consequently, cattle farmers in Winnicky’s area are particularly irritated that they are contributing $2 per head to an entity that has accomplished nothing in six years instead of spending that money on feed, Winnicky said. For his part, Penner has moved on from his days leading Natural Prairie Beef, as he just opened a meat and deli shop in Winnipeg. Yet, given the XL Foods recall, it’s obvious to Penner that Manitoba’s cattle industry needs a sizable slaughter plant located within the province. Manitoba needs a slaughterhouse that can handle 10 percent of the province’s cattle herd because producers need a marketing option besides Alberta or the U.S., he noted. Regardless, the plant can’t remain a proposal forever. Either build it or shut down MCEC, Penner said. “The producers have no problem with a check off… if they see results. But enough is enough already.”

2006 to Dec. 31, 2011: Manitoba cattle producers contributed, via a $2 per head check off, approximately $5 million to MCEC. Manitoba taxpayers contributed about $5.4 million to MCEC, through a matching levy and start-up funding. MCEC spent approximately $2.87 million from 2006 to the end of 2011 on operating costs. 2007-2008: MCEC invested $2.4 million into Keystone Processors, a proposed slaughter plant in Winnipeg 2009: MCEC committed an additional $7.5 million to the plant 2009: the six appointees to the MCEC board of directors received $42,000 in compensation, an average of $7,000 each 2011: MCEC’s three employees were paid $240,000 in salaries and benefits 2011: the council spent $95,000 on advertising and promotion 2011: MCEC announced an investment of $920,000 in Plains Processors to expand an existing cattle slaughter plant in Carman, Man., and bring it up to federal standards. That project is still on hold 2011: MCEC announced an investment of $560,000 in Country Meat & Sausage in Blumenort, Man. The money will pay for an expansion so the plant can slaughter both hogs and cattle. The expansion is proceeding Sources: MCEC annual reports and staff research





Cattle producers question viability of slaughter plant Cart in front of horse | Cattle groups and producers say the industry must rebuild numbers before a plant is feasible BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Less than two weeks after the XL Foods beef recall, the Manitoba Cattle Enhancement Council announced it may soon break ground on $40 million slaughter plant in Winnipeg. Assuming MCEC finalizes a couple of financial deals this fall, construction will begin shortly on a 250 to 500 head per day plant specializing in halal and kosher beef, the spokesperson told a Winnipeg radio station in early October. While MCEC is still touting its slaughter plant, a project that has been stuck in neutral since 2008, leaders of Manitoba’s beef industry aren’t convinced the province needs a plant right now. “It’s not that we’re saying there shouldn’t be processing in Manitoba,” said Cam Dahl, Manitoba Beef Producers general manager. “But there are some things that need to be done first in order to ensure that the production chain is viable.”

the Manitoba Beef Producers passed a resolution to end the MCEC checkoff. Cattle producers opposed to the $2 levy argued that MCEC had accomplished nothing since its inception and they were sick of the council wasting their check-off dollars. Despite the opposition, the MCEC has said the resolution isn’t valid because most cattle producers support MCEC. In a 2011 news release justifying that claim, the council said only 15 percent of cattle farms asked for a

check-off refund in 2010. However, according to the MCEC annual reports, the council returned 37 percent of the levy to cattle producers in 2009. In 2010 it refunded 32 percent of the levy and 31 percent of the checkoff in 2011. On an anecdotal level, it’s hard to find a farmer who supports MCEC, said Jim Murray, a beef producer from Portage la Prairie. “I haven’t talked to one (producer) who is happy with it (MCEC). And I spend a lot of time in the auction marts. I don’t know where they get

their information that everybody is happy with it.” Producers say the percentage of returned levy would probably increase if the six appointees to MCEC’s board and the organization’s three employees made it easier for them to get their money back. Several people in Manitoba’s cattle industry said they have concerns about MCEC’s refund process. It removed the refund application from its website for several months

and the council sent the wrong application forms to producers, forcing cattle producers to ask for a refund more than once. As well, a couple of producers said it can take six to 12 months to get a refund from MCEC. While many cattle producers have lost faith in MCEC over its policies, lack of communication and unfilled promises, the more significant question is whether Manitoba’s cattle industry is ready for a 250 to 500 head per day plant, or if it is economically viable in the long run.

Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association Fall District Meetings The SCA encourages all producers to attend their meeting to voice their perspective on industry issues. This is one of your opportunities to bring forward resolutions.


Ray Armbruster, a rancher from Rossburn, Man., and president of MBP, reiterated Dahl’s comments. He said the province’s beef industry must address other challenges before a large slaughter plant is constructed. For instance, Manitoba needs to rebuild its cattle herd. As of July 2011, according to Statistics Canada, the provincial cow herd was 499,000, the lowest level since 1994. “Sometimes you can’t force these things in. You have to build a vigorous, robust industry (first),” Armbruster said. “Our backgrounding and feeding industry needs to improve in Manitoba. Those things have to be in place to have a cattle supply to support a facility.” Further, the subject of MCEC and the voluntary $2 per head checkoff that funds the organization is a controversial topic among cattle producers in Manitoba. The levy will definitely be discussed, at length, during cattle producer meetings this fall across Manitoba, Dahl said. At its 2011 annual general meeting,

As well, the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association will provide an update from the national perspective. A representative from the Canadian Cattle Identification Agency will be in attendance and available to answer any producer questions.

Farmer wins award for container design



Lids on the stackable baskets improve food safety BY JEFFREY CARTER FREELANCE WRITER

DRESDEN, Ont. – An Ontario farmer drew on his long experience in the tender fruit industry to design and market what he feels is a superior retail container. Phil Short is not alone in his assessment. He was presented with the top Agri-Food Innovation Award worth $75,000 by Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty on Oct. 4. The plastic baskets come with a lid and a handle and are now being used by Loblaw Companies Ltd. in Ontario and nationally. “I know Loblaws is extremely pleased. It’s increased their sales and decreased their shrink,” Short said. “It took me 40 years being in the business to realize what packaging needed to be.” Short says his patented design has several advantages. The clear plastic allows consumers to see what they’re buying. They have flip-up handles for convenience. They’re built to withstand being stacked four-high in retail displays and they’re a good fit for retailers looking to reduce labour costs. Once the baskets are packed and the lid snapped on top, the produce

inside is not touched by a human hand until the consumer takes it home — a key food safety consideration for retailers, Short said. The lids prevent consumers from taking produce from one basket to top up another. They also prevent fruit from falling out. The lids also serve to maintain moisture levels in the fruit and Short said they help keep it in good shape for about seven days longer than other containers. “The extension of the shelf life is something we discovered as we went along.” The baskets were designed for tender fruit, including peaches, nectarines, plums and cherries, and they’re now being sold to growers in British Columbia. Short said he’s also developed a market for packaging greenhouse peppers and cherry tomatoes, Brussels sprouts, potatoes and other produce. Short said some of the prize money will offset development costs. “We put a lot into it and our investment costs have not been recovered as yet.” Short operates a fruit farm near St. Catharines. He is president of NBF Produce, a Niagara-area shipper/ dealer, and is president of Vortex Packaging Niagara Inc.

More needed | Farmers plead for more help from Ottawa BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

The first shipment of prairie hay made it to drought-affected eastern Ontario Oct. 9 with a promise of more to come but quantities are much less than farmers need. “It really is just a drop in the bucket,” Glenn Buck of the Mennonite Disaster Service Ontario unit said Oct. 10. “People need to realize how big this problem is.” This week, 30 large bales of hay arrived in Cobden, northwest of Ottawa. Glenn said another 200 bales are in the pipeline to be shipped from hayrich prairie areas to hay-deficient Ontario areas where livestock farmers started to feed winter hay in the summer because of the lack of pasture. “It is a moving target but the need clearly is far greater than the commitment so far,” said Buck. Farmers north of Saskatoon organized the Oct. 9 shipment. Some planned shipments are also from northern Alberta. The Hay East campaign is a western response to the outpouring of support from eastern Canadian producers a decade ago in the Hay West campaign for drought-ravaged prairie cattle farmers. However, Buck said this effort lacks a crucial area of support. In 2002, the federal Liberal government supported the effort and paid the costs of moving hay by rail from east to west. This time, the federal Conservative

government has not made a commitment to the effort. The Mennonite Disaster Service paid the freight for the first shipments. “But we have a very small pot of money for this,” said Buck. He s a i d a l o b by o f Ca na d i a n National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway to transport the hay for free drew the response that they will contribute if the federal government does. Ontario Federation of Agriculture president Mark Wales said that federal support this time is caught up in negotiations about when and how AgriRecovery can kick in to cover some of the transportation costs. “There is much more AgriRecovery can do but if (agriculture minister) Gerry Ritz wants a good day he can go to Renfrew and announce he is cutting a cheque so we can get ahead of the curve on this,” he said. Farmers estimate about 45,000 round bales are needed to keep the Ontario cattle herd through the winter. In the Hay West project a decade ago, 58,000 round bales were sent west by Christmas. “We would like to see the same timeline this time,” he said. But Wales said Ontario farmers appreciate western support. “Ontario farmers are grateful for the show of support from our western neighbours and for the support of hay, cash and in-kind donations that have begun to come in.”

Practical courses teach life skills

Home ec classes make the ‘cool’ list

Hands-on classes a hit | Saskatchewan curriculum requires applied arts courses for all students STORIES BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Practical, hands-on classes such as home economics and industrial arts are back in vogue. Not that they ever disappeared from school curricula, but their popularity is soaring as high school students look to trades-based careers. Many school divisions cut their practical and applied arts (PAA) programming in the 1990s, said Gord Heidel, PAA co-ordinator for Saskatchewan’s education ministry. “There was this mentality that everybody was going to go to university,” he said. However, the province’s booming economy and demand for trades people has changed that mindset. From commercial cooking to welding to fashion design to agriculture, PAA classes are in demand. Forty classes are offered under the PAA umbrella in Saskatchewan. Not all are offered everywhere; each school division has to consider its facilities and available expertise. Christine Thompson, who teaches home economics to students in middle years in Swift Current, Sask., said basic cooking and sewing skills are taught to all students. It’s not like the old days when girls took home ec and boys took shop class, she added. Most students at this level are starting from scratch. “There are very few kids that come in with a lot of experience,” she said. Members of organizations such as 4-H have done some cooking and sewing, but there is less time for this type of teaching at home because most families have two working parents. Heidel said these important life skills are critical to students’ success both in school and as adults. Hands-on learning also suits some students better than sitting in a lecture-style class. Students generally select PAA classes that fit with their personal interests, such as auto body or carpentry. “The kids who choose those electives thrive in those classes,” he said. “That, for some kids, might be the

The Saskatchewan curriculum requires that all Grade 7 to 9 students take 150 hours of PAA classes. After Grade 9, two PAA electives are required. Heidel, who was hired by the ministry a year ago after 18 years as an auto body teacher, has been studying PAA curricula across Canada.

He is looking for ways to share ideas and resources, as well as how the different provinces’ curricula fit together. For example, electrical standards are fairly close across the country so classes in that area should be similar. Heidel will also be updating curricula, but he said any changes are at least a year away. The clothing, textiles and fashion design curriculum was last updated in 2000, while the food studies cur-

riculum was established in 1999. He said at a pace of updating three out of 40 classes per year, there will always be some that are at least a decade out of date. While the basics of cooking might not change, trends and palates do. He said immigration and television cooking shows have exposed people to ethnic food and preparation methods that go beyond the basic meat-and-potatoes cooking of 30 years.

Quilting isn’t just Grandma’s hobby any more, while cake decorating has become more than just a pastime. Saskatchewan home economists and home economics teachers are happy about the resurgence of the home arts. A recent conference attended by 80 members of the associations that represent both groups saw an influx of younger attendees, said home economics teacher and conference organizer Christine Thompson. She said popular television shows and magazines and media focus on food and fashion likely get some of the credit for the renewed interest. For example, cupcakes have been a foodie trend for a few years and have led to entire stores offering elaborately decorated mini cakes. “Quilting is a huge industry,” said Thompson. “There are classes and retreats.” Students have seen all this happen and want to participate, she added. What was once perhaps considered “lame” is now cool. Some school cooking classes feature iron chef competitions, while Agriculture in the Classroom has offered a two-part competition for high school students that involved planning and preparing a meal using chicken as the main ingredient. Project-based learning engages a different part of the brain and can help lead to success in other classes as well as careers. “The kids, they love doing it,” Thompson said. “It’s so exciting for them to build a project, something they can use or take home.” Teachers are awaiting the development of new curriculum that will update the classes they teach. Thompson said classes change with the times. Microwave cooking was once cutting edge but is no longer emphasized during lab work. However, basic skills such as measuring and safety will always be included. “There is more emphasis on nutrition all the way through,” she said. “We want them to focus on the best healthiest options.”

Young fisherman reels in big catch with Jerk Fish New product development | Rural Manitoban seeks to increase his return on walleye caught in Lake Winnipeg BY KAREN MORRISON SASKATOON NEWSROOM

GIMLI, Man. — Manitoba fisherman Chris Dalman smelled an opportunity when a shipment of specialty fish bound for Gimli’s Icelandic Festival was confiscated at the port. He decided to try dehydrating the walleye he catches and selling it to a community that loves its hardfiskur. The result was Jerk Fish, which is now available in peppered, seasoned and traditional flavours in grocery stores throughout the Manitoba Interlake. “Everyone liked it and it went over well,” said Dalman, who is of Icelandic descent. “The Icelandic like cod and are used to a pungent fish flavour.” Demand has since outstripped supply for the one-person company, which uses Dalman’s double car garage in Arnes, Man., for processing and packaging. He said smaller fish work best, noting how a freshly caught 340 gram fish dries down to 70 grams. He sells Jerk Fish to stores for $8.33, which then resell it for around $13. During the warmer months, Dalman can be found in his small boat on Lake Winnipeg catching fish for about six hours a day. Once home, the day’s catch is processed for fresh fish markets or dried for Jerk Fish. In the early days of the business, that meant 18 to 20 hour days and processing 100 bags a day. “I’ve slowed down a bit,” said Dalman, who once travelled to multiple

farmers’ markets each week but now focuses on his “hot spots” and selling to stores with strong hard fish sales. Private fresh fish sales allow him to earn twice as much as wholesale, and adding value with Jerk Fish allows him to earn five times that amount, he said. “If I had to buy this fish, it wouldn’t be worth it. The only reason it’s profitable to me is that I fish it,” he said. Although a food product, fish does not qualify for grants available from Agriculture Canada. Consequently, he turned to Community Futures East Interlake for $45,000 in loans to refurbish his garage, buy equipment, conduct product development and develop packaging and labels. He would like to eventually sell to hunting and fishing stores or supply the Minnesota Vikings football stadium because of its association with the Icelandic culture. He said Jerk Fish is a good fit with outdoor enthusiasts and travellers. “It’s a quick easy snack, popular with truckers,” he said, citing its 80 percent protein content. For now, he’s moving ahead cautiously. “I don’t want to go too fast,” said Dalman. He fell in love with fishing after working as a tree planter in British Columbia. He worked as a fisherman’s helper for two years, as required, before getting his commercial fishing licence and gradually building up

his fish quota to 18,000 pounds. Dalman said it is difficult for an independent to break into commercial fishing in the family-dominated industry of the Interlake, where quotas now sell for as much as $5.50 per pound. The phosphorus concerning sunbathers and cottage owners is a boon to fishermen like Dalman, who said the nutrient load is keeping fish numbers high. He works at ice breaking, dredging and ice fishing in the winter to supplement his seasonal fishing income and support his two preschoolers and wife, Kyla. MLA Peter Bjornson, Manitoba’s minister responsible for entrepreneurship, training and trade, has tasted the product, which resembles a toned down variety of the hard fish he grew up with as part of an Icelan-

Bjornson said there are few valueadded fish products from Manitoba, but noted the potential is great for

Manitoba’s commercial and recreational fishing industry, which has a net worth of $80 million annually. His department has appointed a trade specialist to look at markets for Manitoba fish outside of Canada. He said provincial programs are available to entrepreneurs to assist with market and product development, commercialization and certification. Organizations such as the Canadian Youth Business Foundation also lend support. There are also trade shows and food fairs, including Food Fight in Brandon, which is a showcase and competition held each spring for new Manitoba products.





Ill family member precipitates switch to organic Seeking specialty markets | Farmers must meet a long list of requirements before an organic dairy is certified BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

WETASKIWIN, Alta. — The decision to switch their dairy farm to organic from conventional was easy for Arnold and Jeannette Van Os. An ill family member who explored alternative treatment helped give the couple the push they needed to try something different when Alberta Milk looked for dairy producers interested in organic milk production. “The switch was a little harder than the decision,” said Arnold, sitting at a long wooden kitchen table after morning milking. Farmers must meet a long list of requirements before an organic dairy is certified. No fertilizer and pesticides are allowed on the fields for three years and the cattle must be fed only organic feed for a year before certification. A combination of little rain and not enough hay land has made buying high quality organic feed difficult, said Arnold, but he hopes that additional land he recently purchased will help ensure a good supply of organic dairy feed. Arnold estimated he lost 25 percent of his milk production when he switched to organic, which he blames on poorer quality feed. The Van Oses are just one of 10 organic dairies in the province supplying nine million litres of organic milk a year for processing. About half the milk is sold under the organic label and the rest is added to the conventional milk system. “I see a growing trend to organic, but it’s still growing and there are a few hiccups,” said Arnold. Two organic processors operated in Alberta when the Van Oses began producing organic milk: Saputo and Saxby Foods, a cake manufacturer that entered the organic milk market. However, Saxby has since gone out of business, leaving Saputo as the only organic milk processor. Arnold hopes increased marketing and advertising will increase the market for organic milk so that it eventually becomes large enough to

use all the organic milk produced in the province. The Van Os farm is one of six dairies in Alberta using Jersey milk cows. The family bought an older dairy farm when they emigrated from Holland 13 years ago. The started by milking the more traditional Holsteins, but switched to Jerseys because they fit better into their older milking barns. As well, farmers at that time were paid based on milk components. The 180 Jersey milk cows produce less milk, but the payments were higher because of higher fat content. The payment system has since been changed, but Arnold still believes it was a good move to switch to Jersey cattle. “We really started to like the breed. Their attitude is different,” said Arnold, who often gets calls from acreage owners who want to buy a Jersey cow for their own farm. The bull calves are kept until about three months and sold to people who want roping calves. “I can’t keep up. I could have double the numbers. I have no problem selling them,” he said. The couple believes they made the right decision to move their family from Holland to Alberta. A friend had recently returned to Holland from Canada and was excited about the opportunities. The idea turned to reality, especially when Jeannette became excited about the move. “When we looked to the future, we saw more opportunity here,” she said. “It was a challenge, something new. I wanted a better future for our family.” Two of the family’s nine children, aged two to 24, help in the family farm. “It’s such a different culture here. It’s much more relaxed,” said Arnold. “In Holland, you have to do things a certain way, act a certain way. Most people live for the neighbors. Here you can be yourself.” Added Jeannette: “Overall, it’s better.” The family filled a container with their belongings when they moved, including a box of wooden shoes,

which they couldn’t live without. Arnold is a director with Alberta Milk, the province’s milk marketing agency. For him, it’s a way to meet

other dairy farmers, keep up with industry trends and give back to the industry. “I really like the variety off the farm,”

he said. “It’s a way to meet other people, share experiences and move the industry forward.”


Change in diet worth trying to resolve health concerns HEALTH CLINIC



I have had fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome for several years. Recently, I read that going on a gluten-free diet might help my aches and pains. Do you think it is worth trying? I don’t have any intestinal symptoms.


You have nothing to lose if it doesn’t work, except that a gluten-free diet does cost more than other food. It is becoming much easier to purchase crackers, bread, pasta, cereal and cookies made with gluten-free flour. Most grocery stores now have a special shelf for these products and there are bakeries that specialize in them also. It is becoming fashionable for people to go on this diet, because they believe it is generally more healthy. However, most gluten-free baked goods are made with refined white rice flour and may be lacking in fibre as well as vitamin B and iron, which are added to bread and cereal. There is a difference between people who have celiac disease and non-

celiac gluten sensitivity. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that runs in families. Eating gluten contained in wheat, barley and rye products causes the wavy protrusions in the small intestine known as villi to die off, leaving the inside of the bowel smooth. Food goes straight through and is not properly digested. Diarrhea and stomach cramps are symptoms. There may also be a skin rash called dermatitis herpetiformis, which can sometimes be confused with psoriasis. About one percent of the population suffers from celiac disease. It is also more common in people of northern European descent. However, another six percent of the population have also been identified with

non-celiac gluten sensitivity. You may be one of these people. It is now considered a separate clinical condition and symptoms may include chronic fatigue, weight loss and joint pains or arthritis. In these cases, biopsies of the small intestine show no abnormalities and it does not appear to be an autoimmune disorder. There is no specific test for nonceliac gluten sensitivity at this time. Try a gluten-free diet for about six months and see if you feel better. Eggs and eyes Your mother used to tell you to eat your carrots so you could see in the dark, but now it seems that eating

eggs is good for eyesight as well. Macular degeneration is one of the leading causes of blindness in this country, partly due to our increased life expectancy. Eggs contain a substance called lutein, which helps prevent this eye disease. It is related to the carotenoids found in carrots. Eggs are also rich in antioxidants and vitamins such as folic acid. People once avoided eggs due to cholesterol and heart disease concerns. If you stick to one egg a day on average, you will have no increased risk of heart attack or stroke, and your eyes will thank you. Clare Rowson is a retired medical doctor in Belleville, Ont.

Women’s suffrage was not unique to Canada and the United States. The isolation and lack of opportunities for women were almost universal. Women came to a young Canada from their own countries, hoping for improved lives in their new world. The suffragette movement struggled in Canada and around the world. With the outbreak of the First World War in 1914 and the enlistment of men in the armed forces, women entered the work force in unprecedented numbers and their role in the country’s economy could no longer be ignored. On Jan. 28, 1916, Manitoba became the first province in Canada to allow women to be elected to the Legislature. A series of measures between 1917 and 1919 declared the women of Manitoba were citizens, persons and human beings. By 1925, women could vote provincially everywhere except Quebec, where 15 more years would pass before the right was granted. Women are Persons On Oct. 18, 1928, the Privy Council of Britain declared “women are persons.” Until then, a British ruling of 1876 declared that women were persons in matters of pain and penalties, but not persons in matters of rights and privileges. In 1929, after two years of legal debate, Canada’s highest court of appeal declared that the word person included both women and men. Five Alberta women, who became known as the Famous Five, had brought the case before the courts in 1927. Being a Person is Not Enough By the early 1900s, some women in Canada had made a place for themselves in newspapers, and through the printed page, these women acquired an audience. Lillian Beynon was hired as women’s columnist for the Weekly Free Press and Prairie Farmer. Francis Beynon later became woman’s editor of the Grain Growers’ Guide. Nellie McClung was a novelist. Cora Hind became a familiar figure

Parents have to make some but not all decisions for pre-teen SPEAKING OF LIFE



My 12-year-old has always stubbornly refused to attend to personal hygiene. She is driving us bonkers. She won’t brush her teeth. She won’t wash. She won’t wear deodorant. She won’t shower or wash her hair or generally be clean. Could it be a control thing?

I have to literally stand next to her and go through the list of personal care duties. And she gets angry with me, but if I don’t nag at her, she does not do any of it. I know in the big picture I should calm down and worry about the big stuff. But being bullied would be devastating for her fragile selfesteem if the mean girls target her in her class because she smells. I do not want her to give them ammunition. What can I do?


You are having a perplexing problem with your young girl. This has probably evolved into a power struggle between the two of you, but I am not sure that you have to

back down. Neither do I believe that you have to perpetuate it. You might do better if you explore what is going on with your daughter before you challenge what needs to be corrected. Your daughter is 12 and that puts her at the end of preadolescence. It is noted for growth spurts, the beginning of sexual maturity and changes in peer group relationships, academic expectations and family relationships. During this time, parents expect more responsible behaviour. Some children handle this period of their lives better than others. Perhaps your daughter is not handling it well and is making some bad decisions.

I believe that you need to be proactive. You need to make some decisions for her, but not all of them. When you try to do too much, you are susceptible to nagging and lose credibility. You would probably do better to pick your battles. What would happen if you and your daughter sat down when the two of you are not arguing with each other and made a commitment to her to try to back off from the list of complaints you outlined in your note to me? You are, however, going to insist that she have a proper and complete shower at night before bedtime. That shower has to happen every night. If need be, you will nag her to get into the shower.

It is her choice. She can either hop into the shower or put up with your interference until she does. My guess is that if you follow through on this, some of your other concerns will rectify themselves. Be patient. The escape from preadolescence does not happen overnight. It takes time. The more you can listen to your daughter as she gets challenged during this moment in her life, the more likely it is that she will continue to grow and mature into a responsible woman.

Cover speaks volumes THE MORE THINGS CHANGE …



almost always judge a book by its cover. The more raised lettering and metallic colors it has, the better. And a holographic image or two doesn’t hurt, either. Hey, those eyes are following me. Some books play up the author’s name to the point that the title is incidental. Here’s another Stephen King book. Didn’t he release one last week? This title looks familiar. Maybe I’ve already read it. Let’s see … evil incarnate, hellspawn, creepy things that go bump, gorp, squelch in the night … no, never seen it before. I also like books with lots of pages and fairly small type. If you’re spending a hefty sum for a paperback, you might as well get one that will keep you occupied for a while. The blurbs on the cover are important. I always read them because it’s important to know what Gaylord Wilmott of the Delaware Times Herald Picayune Examiner thought of a book. Usually his analysis is along the lines of, “Fantastic! Demonic! Riveting! Buy this book! Now!” If the book has been on the New York Times bestseller list, well, that’s enough reason right there to buy it. New Yorkers are cool, so if a book makes it on their list, that makes me cool by association. Torontonians aren’t as cool as New Yorkers, so the book list in the Globe and Mail doesn’t have quite the cachet as the one in the Times. Cachet is a word I picked up reading book reviews.

Prairie cookbooks highlight regional specialties BY AMY JO EHMAN FREELANCE WRITER

The potatoes are in cold storage, the sour cherries are frozen and the beef is at the butcher to be cut and wrapped. Another prairie harvest season is coming to a close. It’s the perfect time to sit down with a book that celebrates the local bounty and feeds a growing curiosity in prairie food from farm to fork. “The interest is huge on the Prairies, even moreso, I find, than in Ontario,” said C. J. Katz, Reginabased author of Taste: Seasonal Dishes from a Prairie Table. “We’re a whole lot more than wheat,” said Katz, who admits she held that old stereotype before moving to Saskatchewan from Ontario 10 years ago with her husband and two sons. Reluctant to relocate at first, she became captivated and shared her discoveries with readers of her online magazine Savour Life. “I was seeing it through new eyes and I think that I helped some people who had been here a long time to see their province through different eyes as well,” she said. Katz relates a story about Saskatchewan senator Pamela Wallin, a former journalist and diplomat, who gave a ringing endorsement of her book. Yet, Wallin wanted to know why there was a picture of fiddleheads on the cover. “She didn’t realize we have fiddleheads here, but of course we do,” said

Recipes using prairie fruit include cherry spareribs, plum pizza and apple soup. | AMY JO EHMAN PHOTO Katz, who noted other surprises like wild culinary mushrooms, fresh water fisheries and prairie cherries. “People are surprised to learn how many fruits are grown on the Prairies,” said Getty Stewart of Winnipeg, author of The Prairie Fruit Cookbook released earlier this year. The cookbook features 11 prairie fruits from apples to grapes, with information on picking, preserving and preparing creative recipes such

as plum pizza, saskatoon berry salsa and apple soup. “Our fruits are so versatile. They sometimes have more of that tart flavour (compared to B.C. fruit), but that’s what makes our fruit so unique and so versatile,” she said. “You can go savoury or you can go sweet. You’re not stuck with just desserts.” Stewart grew up on a farm at Nesbitt, Man., where her family collected wild and orchard fruit. When she

started a family of her own in Winnipeg, she was struck by how much fruit grew in the city and how much of it went to waste. Three years ago, she started a harvesting co-op called Fruit Share that allows volunteers to pick unharvested fruit and share it with homeowners and food charities. This year, volunteers picked 9,000 pounds of fruit. Yet, she said many didn’t know what to do with it. “Unlike a lot of farm families who pass that tradition on, many of our volunteers didn’t have that background. But they are really curious,” said Stewart. It joins a new crop of single-issue cookbooks, including the Gravelbourg Mustard Cookbook, which elevates mustard from its niche as only a condiment, and Cooking with Cherries From the Prairies, a collection of recipes and folklore compiled by the University of Saskatchewan’s fruit program, where these hardy prairie cherries were developed through selective cross-breeding. “Most people think cherry pie and that’s it, but there’s so much more you can do with these cherries,” said Loretta Bors, one of the Cherries authors. She said some of the keenest customers are producers who are marketing locally-grown fruit and hope to encourage customers to think outside the pie. It includes recipes such as cherry spareribs, cherry biryani and Hungarian sour cherry soup.

Even the Company’s Coming cookbook empire joined the local food bandwagon this year by launching the Canada Cooks Series, including the The Canadian Prairie Cookbook featuring prairie ingredients for busy home cooks, a sign of the growing interest in tapping the local foodshed. “The term foodshed refers to any specific geographic region and the food thereof, from the farmer who produced it though the distribution system to the consumer’s plate,” said Dee Hobsbawn-Smith, author of Foodshed: An Edible Alberta Alphabet. “In my mind, the producers are the bedrock of it.” From asparagus to zizania (the genus of wild rice), Foodshed covers the ground of regional food and the farmers who produce it, focusing on being a small, independent farmer selling directly to customers. A professional chef, HobsbawnSmith began sourcing local food and collecting stories when she had her own restaurant in Calgary and later as the food columnist in the Calgary Herald. Already the author of three cookbooks, she decided this book would have few recipes and focus on the farmers instead. “These farmers do it not for the money, but because they believe in it. They do it for the rural lifestyle,” she said. “A lot of them have second jobs to underwrite the fact that they are raising our food, which I think is a terrible reflection on the importance of food and lack thereof in our culture.”

Harvest For Kids 249 combines | Proceeds from Saskatchewan record breaking event support childrens’ camp programs in the developing world



askatchewan farmers now hold the world record for the most combines harvesting on a single field at the same time. Harvest For Kids, organizers of the record setting event, set out to beat the record of 208 combines set in Ireland last July. It prepared 249 swaths on a 200 acre oat field 25 kilometres north of Saskatoon. By the time the siren sounded for the combines to begin, not only did every swath have a combine lined up on it, there were even a couple extra combines. It marks the fourth time the record has been passed between Irish and Canadian farmers: In 2010 at Winkler, Man., 200 combines took to one field; in Ireland in 2009, 175 combines were recorded in one field, and in 2006, an event in Westlock, Alta., unofficially broke the previous record with 100 combines. The co-ordinator of the Saskatchewan event, Wendell Andres, said he was thrilled. “It’s more than a little bit of a rivalry,” he said. “What they did in Ireland was actually a really good thing and we don’t want to take that away from them, but we wanted to show them that Saskatchewan farmers can do it also.” Shawn Fisher, sales manager of Moody’s Equipment, a New Holland dealer in Saskatoon that brought 16 combines to the event, said an estimated $50 to $75 million worth of machinery took to the field for the event. However, it wasn’t only the big and expensive combines that interested the spectators. “You actually see the bigger part of the crowd is over in the part of the field with the old-time threshing and old combines — that’s where the interest is,” Fisher said. The 1957 Cockshutt 428 Deluxe, which hasn’t missed a harvest since it was new, was among the older combines that many spectators watched. Its owner, Jack Klassen, a

62-year-old organic farmer from north of Shell Lake, Sask., started running the machine when he was nine years old. “I think a lot of farmers had one of them at one time, and so a lot of folks came up and wanted to sit on it and tell stories,” Klassen said. “I was a little bit concerned about the swath. I was supposed to have a 15-foot swath and I ended up getting a 25-foot swath, which is a really big load for the machine. I went really slowly. I certainly wasn’t done first, but I did get the job done.” In the mile long line of 187 combines sitting side by side on the east end of the field were two Case 80-10 machines owned and driven by Dennis and Joyce Goetz from Radisson, Sask. The couple still had about three days of combine work to complete their own harvest, but they decided to set that aside so they could come help their neighbours at the event. “At first we were only going to bring one of them, but then we thought, ‘no, we’ll bring both of them …’ That’s how people in Saskatchewan do it — you help out however you can, especially if you’re helping kids.” Dwane Sekundiak of Saskatoon watched the combines with his daughter and grandchildren, and called it a once in a lifetime event. “Farmers in Saskatchewan are like the Rider fans — they just love it,” he said. “I’d sooner hook a baler behind a tractor and drive around a field than pull a trailer to the southern states. That’s a vacation to me.” Christian country band High Valley proved a popular attraction. Brad Rempel, one of the three brothers that make up the band, said combining is nothing new to the family from La Crete, Alta. “The whole province of Saskatchewan is known for farming, and this has proven it today that they have taken this seriously and want to be the world record holders,” he said. The Harvest for Kids event was originally going to be held on a 300 acre oat field owned by Chad

However, 500 millimetres of rain fell on the crop through the summer, Doerksen said, so they were forced to move the event to Brent Baerg’s farm. Harvest For Kids raises money for Children’s Camps International by taking the proceeds of a crop, which is produced with donations of land,

inputs, machinery, and work by sponsors. Children’s Camps International is a non-profit organization that supports children camping programs in the developing world. Wendell Andres, the regional director of Children’s Camp International in Saskatchewan, said

since the program began in 2003 it has helped more than 900,000 children to go to camp. ”Our focus is to empower churches in other countries to use camp as a tool for evangelism,” Andres said. “It’s an opportunity for us to give them hope, where there isn’t necessarily a lot of hope.”





CWD experts lament loss of targeted hunt Program eliminated in 2009 | Deer would be shot within a 10-kilometre radius of a positive case of CWD to control its spread BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Chronic wasting disease in wild deer has spread faster since Alberta government staff stopped their targeted hunts four years ago, says a provincial disease specialist. “I believe we have the evidence that the control program was effective in the years when we delivered it,” said Margo Pybus of Alberta’s Fish and Wildlife disease unit. “The rate of spread was less and the rate of increase within the population was less. Under the current program, yes it’s spreading both geographically and spreading numerically. The proportion of animals that are infected is increasing each year.” Thirty-three deer tested positive for the brain wasting disease last fall, bringing the total to 127 wild deer that have tested positive since it was first detected in Alberta in 2005. CWD is believed to have entered the province from Saskatchewan as deer moved through river valleys between the provinces. Pybus said it continues to spread into Alberta. An additional three wildlife management units, or hunting areas, were added this year, requiring hunters to submit the heads of deer shot in those areas. Hunters must now submit heads from deer shot in 33 WMU areas along the Saskatchewan border and in the Battle and Red Deer river valleys. “That is where we believe the disease is heading. What we try to do is get out in front of it, ideally start to get more samples from that area. We may not find the disease this year, but we might find it next year if indeed it is spreading up the watershed,” said Pybus. “It’s contingent upon us to know at least where the disease is, to know where it’s spreading and how fast it’s getting there, what the implications may be for our deer populations. The disease will continue to just spread up these two watersheds in particular, will spill over into other watersheds and eventually you will see it insidiously march across the province and we’ll have CWD show up in areas further and further west each year.” Before 2009, fish and wildlife staff would shoot deer within a 10-kilometre radius of where a positive wild deer had been discovered in an effort to control the spread and keep it at a stable and low level. Doug Butler, hunting chair of Alberta Fish and Game, said they would like to see a return to more targeted methods to control the spread of CWD in wild deer. The disease needs to be controlled with a combination of increased monitoring, more hunting tags and targeted kills after a deer tests positive. “We want to hold it at bay until more is known,” said Butler, who sat on government CWD manage-


We know that it is continuing to expand and from a wildlife management perspective we don’t know what the ultimate implications of CWD in deer populations in our ecosystems is likely to be. MARGO PYBUS ALBERTA FISH AND WILDLIFE DISEASE UNIT

ment groups before they were disbanded. “Something has to be done. Doing nothing is unacceptable.” He said officials don’t want a return to the scorched earth policy the fish and wildlife department used to control the deer around a positive case. Instead, they would like to see a more modest number of deer killed following a positive discovery rather than wildlife staff shooting deer from helicopters and burying them in pits. “Monitoring it doesn’t do any good if there is no action on a positive,” said Butler. Opponents of targeted hunts didn’t believe they were effective, arguing that killing deer within an area would create a vacuum that deer from other areas would fill. Pybus said their studies show deer are social animals and don’t leave their social groups for areas of lowdeer density. “It isn’t part of their behaviour.” Herman Bulten, chair of the Alberta Elk Commission, said his organization’s position hasn’t changed and is still opposed to killing deer in a known CWD area. “We don’t believe it’s a useful tool to halt the spread of CWD,” said Bulten. He said deer scatter faster and farther than if they are left alone. “Is that a good use of resources? CWD is not a disease that spreads like wildfire. It spreads slowly,” he said. Instead, Bulten said his organization wants the Alberta government to put extra money into a University of Saskatchewan research program that is developing a vaccine to halt the disease. “They are crying for funding,” said Bulten. Pybus said there is no indication the government plans to bring back the control program. Even without a targeted hunt, he believes a con-

tinuing surveillance program is important. More than 48,000 wild deer have been tested for CWD since 1998. “I think it’s essential we maintain some handle on what this disease is doing on the landscape,” he said. “We know that it is continuing to expand and from a wildlife management perspective we don’t know what the ultimate implications of CWD in deer populations in our ecosystems is likely to be. It’s a new element. This is an invasive, exotic disease.”

Alberta feed ration expert selected for award Order of Excellence | Lethbridge Research Centre scientist helped develop the feedlot industry in southern Alberta BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Robert Hironaka still recalls a phone call from a 300-head feedlot operator who was having problems with bloating animals. He was treating 20 head per day for the problem, and needed advice. Hironaka, a scientist at the Lethbridge Research Centre, had done extensive work on feed rations and feedlot economics, and he quickly identified the issue. “He was making his grain too fine. I said ‘well look, you’ve got an auger. Drill a hole in the topside of the auger, put a garden hose attachment on it, and run the barley up’.” Three days later, the bloat problems had disappeared. And Hironaka had once again proven his reputation for developing a system of tempering feed grains to reduce fine particles in feed rations and improve feedlot efficiency. On Oct. 17 Hironaka, 84, will receive the Alberta Order of Excellence for his work in research, in academia and in community volunteer work. Brian Freeze, research manager at the Agriculture Canada Lethbridge Research Centre, describes Hironaka as a mentor and a researcher who helped develop southern Alberta’s feedlot industry into a major economic driver. Freeze said when Hironaka began his research at the centre in 1959, feedlots were small, with 100 to 500 head. By the time he retired in 1991, feedlots of 20,000 were common. “One of the initial problems of feeding barley in the late 1970s and early 80s was the fine particles and dust associated with barley,” said Freeze.


El Nino less likely as weather cools SYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) — The chance of an El Nino weather pattern has declined in the past two weeks, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology said last week, but the east coast of Australia is likely to stay dry for the rest of the year as a result of a warmer than average Indian Ocean, threatening greater crop loss. Pacific Ocean temperatures have cooled during the last two weeks, the weather bureau said. Other indicators used to predict an El Nino weather pattern have remained near neutral since late July. “This is one of the more unusual events that anyone of us has seen,” said Andrew Watkins, manager of climate prediction at the bureau’s National Climate Centre. “We saw things barreling up (in) late August and early September, and we would normally have expected things to settle down, but instead it did a U-turn and headed away from what would normally would have happened.”

“Dr. Hironaka is credited with developing the currently used system of tempering barley, i.e. adding water to barley and allowing it to soak before mixing it with barley silage and feeding it.” As well, Hironaka was at the forefront of devising digestible rations from a variety of feeds to minimize cost and maximize efficiency. Working with economists including Freeze and Bernie Sonntag, Hironaka devised financial risk management strategies that allowed operations to feed cattle longer, if neces-


sary, so they could take advantage of better prices. “His contribution was to develop and refine the feedlot finishing system in Alberta focused on barley and barley silage,” said Freeze.

His work helped feedlots develop profitable finishing systems. Hironaka was born on a farm near Raymond and attended Olds College of Agriculture, the University of Alberta and the University of Lethbridge. He was a member of the U of L senate and served as chancellor from 1995-99. He is also known in southern Alberta as one of the founders of the Nikka Yuko Japanese Gardens, which continue to be a major tourism draw. He recalls busy times of managing the finances of garden construction

as a volunteer while also working as a researcher, but the results were worth it. Hironaka has visited many gardens in Japan and says Nikka Yuko rivals those, largely because of its “borrowed view” next to Henderson Lake. “A Japanese garden is something that you feel,” he says. Hironaka will receive his provincial award in the company of recipients that include Reform Party founder Preston Manning, ATCO and Spruce Meadows founder Ron Southern and five others.

LONDON, Ont. — The emerald ash borer which has killed an estimated 50 to 100 million trees in Eastern Canada and the United States is expected to soon arrive in Manitoba from neighbouring Minnesota. It’s been identified in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region, according to Martha Barwinsky, the City of Winnipeg’s forester. The southern half of the province is home to a large population of native green and black ash trees. Ash is also a tree of choice in Manitoba’s urban centres. Mother Nature and research scientists in Canada and the U.S. are fighting back. “Some of the native parasitoids are now up to 40 to 50 per cent parasitism on the EAB on some sites,” said Taylor Scarr, entomologist with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. Unfortunately, that’s still not enough to stop trees from being killed and the pest from spreading further. In the U.S., parasitic wasps imported from Asia have been released. One species attacks the larvae, while the other two target the eggs. While it’s not known if their numbers will increase in North America to a level at which effective control of the EAB is achieved, it’s been determined that all three wasps successfully overwinter here. Scarr said the Canadian Forest Service and Ministry of Natural Resources is considering releasing the wasps in Ontario. Researchers have also discovered fungal organisms that will kill the EAB. The challenge is to develop a way to inoculate large numbers of EAB. One approach is to inoculate males, wh ich ca n th en mate w ith th e females to spread the fungus, Scarr said. The challenge is to find the right fungal species, one which allows the males to live long enough to reach the females. Chemical products have been developed to control the EAB but the cost, if many trees are involved, is generally deemed prohibitive. In addition, applications must be repeated every one or two years to keep the pest at bay. In Ontario and Quebec, a product based on the oil from the neem tree – TreeAzin — has been approved since 2008. Confidor, a neonicotinoid insecticide, received conditional approval last year. Scarr, Barwinsky and others familiar with the EAB spoke at the annual Canadian Urban Forest Conference in London on Oct. 3. The EAB was first identified in the Detroit-Windsor area in 2002 but was likely present for several years before.






Students revive U of S rodeo club Big turnout | Hosting a successful event puts student group on solid ground BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

After a successful debut, the organizers of a revived rodeo club at the University of Saskatchewan say they’ll ride again. Last month’s event, hosted at Martensville’s OK Corral, was the first rodeo competition hosted under the U of S banner in 20 years, said Shelby Clemens, president of the on-campus group. Or so she’s been told. “It’s all word of mouth,” said the second-year student from Lumsden, Sask. “That’s the number we got.” When she arrived at the university, the rodeo club she found was similarly informal. Students had travelled out of province in recent years to compete at Canadian Intercollegiate Rodeo Association events, but Clemens saw undeveloped potential for the club, one of four teams on the university’s Stockman and Rodeo club. “I went looking to join a rodeo club, but found that the rodeo side to it had sort of died off,” said the animal sciences student. “There was one maybe two people who had gone (to events) in the last two years and there just wasn’t really anything happening with that.” A partnership with a former high school competitor, Katie Dutchak, led to a springtime meeting to gauge interest. A positive turnout — Clemens estimated 20 people — was encouraging. “We’ve probably quadrupled the number of members this year. We’re just trying to get back out there and give ourselves a better name,” said Brittany Jordet, president of the Stockman’s club. The group decided to host its own event to raise awareness of the club, drawing upon the interests and backgrounds of students, many of whom come from rural communities across the Prairies. “We knew it was going to be big, but we were surprised how big it got in our first year,” said Dutchak. “We knew there was potential and we knew that this would grow and this would be really big, we just were really thrown back by how quickly it exploded.” After four months of planning — the two spearheaded efforts to attract competitors and sponsors, book a band, and acquire a liquor licence — the event was an unqualified success. With over 100 students from Western Canadian universities and technical schools— including 15 from the U of S — competing in ten events over two days, the turnout far exceeded hopes, said organizers. A f e w h u n d re d m o re w a l k e d through the doors of the event, making it one of the largest college rodeos in Western Canada. “We’re really happy with that. Our first year, nobody really knew what to expect,” said Clemens. “It was hard to get people out and it

was hard to get sponsors that would get on board with such a new idea.” With the event under the belts, the club is keeping an eye to the future. Members will continue to travel together to events in Alberta and their intention is to make the rodeo an event. There’s talk of eventually adding another event in the spring.

Experts seek to improve plants’ ability to capitalize on beneficial organisms Tapping the presence of helpful fungi could reduce the need for soil inputs BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Research is shedding new light on a relationship that exists between most plants and some beneficial organisms in the soil. Biologists are interested in the nature of that partnership and how it affects plants growing in the wild, while other researchers are looking to exploit it, allowing producers to grow crops with fewer inputs. McMaster University biologist Susan Dudley is examining the growth of a weed, but she said the work could also have implications for farmers. Dudley, who is attempting to determine if plants can recognize their relatives, studied the relationship between the weed and mycorrhizal fungi. The benefits of the fungi are welldocumented but aren’t exploited in high-input agriculture. The fungi provides the plant with pathogen protection and nutrients, particularly phosphorus, in exchange for carbohydrates. In a competitive environment, it’s possible for neighbouring plants to benefit from a blossoming fungal network without making the same sacrifices. The researcher ’s greenhouse experiments examined the plant’s social environment, showing how a ragweed plant recognizes its kin and behaves unselfishly, or “altruistically,” as lead author Amanda File describes recently in the journal PLOS ONE. Ragweed was grown with seeds from the same plant as well as with “stranger” seeds. When grown with “strangers,” the fungal network was smaller and the group observed greater root lesions. Among kin, there was more fungi, which resulted in a greater cost to the plants but also greater benefits. “We see differences in traits when plants are grown with their siblings compared to strangers,” said Dudey. “The differences we see are evidence of plants being less competitive with their relatives.” Theory suggests that the same thing occurs in other plant systems, she said. “By understanding what helps increase productivity in wild plants, where they’re under intense natural selection, then we might be able to come up with ideas about how we can increase productivity in crop plants,” said Dudley. “Evolutionary biologists are talking about fitness, but fitness is very similar to yield. The amount of carbon a plant can store in a tuber, like a potato, or the number of seeds and the size of the seeds made, we call that fitness, but producers will call that yield. So we have very similar interests.” Danny Singh, a durum wheat breeder with Agriculture Canada in Swift Current, Sask., said there is potential for large-scale, commercial farms to make better use of these organisms. He’s studying the compatibility of durum wheat genotypes with mycorrhizal fungi and looking for plants that can capitalize on their presence

and possibly require lower phosphorus input. His efforts have identified how some durum varieties have a greater mycorrhizal dependency. “What we are looking for are plants that have a better association,” he said. “So they aren’t dependent, but in the right conditions they are better placed and they are more strategic in how they utilize (it).” A commercial mycorrhizal product, Myke Pro, is available as an inoculant, but it is used for garden

plants. Singh’s goal is to identify cultivars that make the best use of what’s already in the soil. “Some of our work is showing that Strongfield, for example, seems to be a good choice for that,” he said. “More work needs to be done to test it against a range of different species and strains because as you can imagine in the soil, there’s a lot of different microorganisms. In researching them, you look at one on one and then you keep adding things. We’re taking small steps.”

Hot weather triggers early cattle births Early delivery may produce smaller calves BY MARGARET EVANS FREELANCE WRITER

LINDELL BEACH, B.C. — Excessive summer heat may affect more than crops and the water supply. It can be detrimental for pregnant beef cows giving birth in temperatures of 32 C or more and can trigger the early onset of birth. The research findings by animal scientists at Oklahoma State Univer-

sity’s division of agricultural sciences and Natural Resources found that cows may calve four days earlier than normal when exposed to extreme heat. In many mammals, the fetus triggers the onset of birth when natural processes come together. But the studies have shown that high temperature can speed this up during the last two weeks of gestation. “We propose that greater ambient

Studies show hot weather can reduce a cow’s gestation period by four days. | temperature results in greater body temperatures of the dam and calf, and this initiates the cascade of endocrine events that cause parturition earlier,” said Bob Wettemann, Oklahoma State University’s regents p ro f e s s o r a n d a n i ma l s c i e n c e researcher. “In other words, the greater tem-

perature influences the time clock that initiates birth.” Earlier this year, Wettemann was named the 2012 recipient of the American Society of Animal Science’s Animal Management Award, which is presented to scientists who make significant contributions to research in animal behaviour, envi-

ronmental science, economics, or other aspects of biological or production management. Under high heat conditions, it is critical that newborn calves find shade immediately or they can die, said Wettemann. “It is amazing how cows and calves find shade to decrease radiant energy during hot days.” The slightly earlier onset of birth is not necessarily a bad thing because it can have beneficial consequences for the cow, especially if it had been mated to a bull whose genetics favoured lower birth weights. These factors should combine for an easier birth with a healthy calf on the ground. Given the warnings about global warming and the trend toward hotter, drier summers, some producers are looking at changing to bulls that produce smaller calves or calves with lower birth weights to try to offset birthing problems. “Many producers select bulls with expected progeny differences (EPD) that identify animals with lighter birth weight,” said Wettemann. “Selection for lighter birth weights has resulted in bulls that produce offspring that have shorter gestations.” It is important to use bulls that produce smaller calves when bred with heifers that are smaller or not fully developed. Not only does summer heat affect the gestation of cows but drought has an impact on spring calves as well. “The body condition score of the cows (when calves were weaned in August) was about one score less compared with normal,” said Wettemann. “ This is ver y typical in many drought areas. It will have a major effect on spring calving cows. They will be thinner, have less body energy stores at calving, resulting in a longer interval from calving to the onset of ovarian function.” This means cows will breed later or will not initiate estrous cycles and become pregnant. Pregnancy rates will be reduced the following spring. Cows will become pregnant later in the breeding season, resulting in fewer, lighter calves to be weaned the following year. The two calving seasons in Oklahoma are February-April and September-October. Fall calving is common in the southern U.S. and for those producers with calving seasons, one third have cows that calve in the fall. Wettemann said that cold weather in January and February is a greater problem for survival of calves. Wettemann said that even though ranchers have not experienced greater mortality with late summer calving, producers may need to change their herd management practices or reduce the number of cows that calve during the heat of summer, given the additional stresses placed on the cow and fetus coupled with the critical need for shade.






Familiar faces head ag organizations Gerry Ritz appointments | Three members of the CWB board were also reappointed BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz, faced with the need to make significant appointments to organizations under his political control, has chosen to stick with the familiar. In appointments this week to Farm Credit Canada, the Canadian Grain Commission and the CWB, Ritz stayed loyal to those he knows. Greg Stewart was re-appointed president of FCC until the middle of 2014 after more than five years on the job. Ritz said Stewart has presided over record FCC earnings and a sharp spike in the value of the FCC loan portfolio. However, the 18-month appointment instead of a longer term indicates that there will be a changing of the guard at the top of FCC in 2014. At the grain commission, Ritz announced the three-year reappointment of former Saskatchewan Reform MP Elwin Hermanson as CGC chief commissioner.

the free-market view of Ritz and his supportive appointees. An application to have the issue reviewed by the Supreme Court is expected to be heard this winter after a Federal Appeal Court judge ruled that the federal government was acting within its rights to end the CWB monopoly.

It means that Hermanson will preside over implementation of Canadian Grain Act amendments that are expected in Parliament this winter and will change CGC powers and functions. The amendments will increase farmer cost-recovery fees to make the CGC more self-sufficient. Hermanson was first appointed by Ritz in 2008. Hermanson was his MP in the 1990s when Ritz worked in his constituency office. The agriculture minister also announced Oct.10 that he is reappointing three members of the CWB board of directors — chair Bruce Johnson, Alberta producer Ken Motiuk and former Manitoba Conservative agriculture minister Glen Findlay. When the government eliminated the CWB single desk last summer, it also ended the provision that the board be majority-controlled by farmer-elected directors. Ritz now controls the board and appoints directors who support the end of the CWB monopoly. “In this new era of marketing freedom, farmers will continue to count on these individuals for their forward-looking leadership and commitment to growing a prosperous future for western Canadian farmers,” Ritz said in the announcement of the director re-appointments.

Indian nitrogen firm’s plan for Quebec raises concern IFFCO and La Coop also plan to build facilities, raising fears of a supply glut WINNIPEG (Reuters) — The Indian Farmers Fertilizer Co-operative, one of India’s largest fertilizer makers, plans to build a $1.2 billion nitrogen plant in Eastern Canada with a Canadian partner. IFFCO and La Coop federee announced earlier this month that they plan to begin construction in Quebec in two years, provided they can raise the remaining 45 percent of

the capital cost and pending a feasibility study. They hope to start producing urea in 2017. The project is the latest in a series of announced plans for additional nitrogen capacity in North America. High crop prices support demand and new technology is unlocking the key ingredient natural gas from shale rock. IFFCO and La Coop will face stiff

competition from Norway’s Yara International ASA and Canada’s Agrium Inc., both of which plan to expand nitrogen production. A surplus of nitrogen production is unlikely in the near term, considering that the United States is a net importer of the fertilizer, said Claude Lafleur, chief executive officer of La Coop. “The (crop) production in North

Nitrogen fertilizer plants in North America may be getting competition soon if an Indian company is successful in its plans to build a plant in Quebec. | FILE PHOTO America is increasing also, and corn needs a lot of nitrogen,” Lafleur said. “At the end of the day, if everybody goes and builds new facilities, it could

lead to a glut, but we don’t see that in the next 10 years.” The U.S. imports more than twothirds of its urea production, but North America would quickly have a surplus if all the rumoured projects became reality, said David Asbridge, president of NPK Fertilizer Advisory Services.

“Even if we have three, possibly four new plants in North America in the next five years, that’s going to be a little price-depressing,” he said. IFFCO operates five fertilizer production plants in India and holds interests in plants in Oman, Jordan and Senegal. It said it chose the site at Becancour, Que., for its access to a port, railway and pipeline for natural gas, which is a key input in nitrogen production. Urea is the most widely used fertilizer in India, especially for growing rice, wheat, sugar cane and cotton. Urea consumption in India was 29 million tonnes in 2011-12 compared to 28.2 million tonnnes a year earlier. India imported 7.83 million tonnes of urea in 2011-12 compared to 6.6 million the previous year. The plant would produce up to 1.2 million tonnes of urea a year, to be split evenly between IFFCO and La Coop. IFFCO will hold one-quarter of the equity, with La Coop holding 12 percent and the Quebec government investing 18 percent, Lafleur said. The remaining 45 percent equity has yet to be raised, he said. FNA Fertilizer Limited Partnership is also raising capital for a proposed nitrogen fertilizer plant in Saskatchewan. La Coop federee, a 90-year-old agriculture-based co-operative based in Montreal, also has investments in livestock production, meat processing and grain marketing. It plans to sell its share of urea production from the plant to farmers in Quebec and the northeastern United States through its 175 stores. The partners plan to draw natural gas by established pipeline from Western Canada to supply the plant. A Quebec site still makes the most sense because IFFCO can easily export urea via the St. Lawrence Seaway and La Coop can sell the fertilizer to eastern farmers, Lafleur said.






Canada formally joins Pacific trade talks

EU proposes freeze on ag spending in next budget

Ag exporters pleased | However, Canada’s supply managed sectors worry it will open doors to imports BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Canada has formally joined negotiations to create a Pacific region trade liberalization deal, joining nine other countries that have been negotiating for several years. Trade minister Ed Fast said the invitation to join the Trans-Pacific Partnership talks is a chance to increase trade into “fast-growing markets throughout the Asia-Pacific region.” Canadian agricultural exporters quickly embraced the announce-

ment as good for their sectors. “The TPP presents a unique opportunity for an ambitious regional trade deal that addresses market access and non-tariff issues for agri-food sectors around the Pacific Rim,” Canadian Agri-Food Trade Alliance executive director Kathleen Sullivan said in a CAFTA statement after the announcement. She said Canadian farmers want TPP negotiators to be “ambitious and creative” to forge a wide-ranging trade deal. Grain Growers of Canada president

Stephen Vandervalk called it “an agreement between like-minded countries, making it a real opportunity to facilitate trade with like-minded partners.” However, for Canada’s supply managed sectors, some of those “likeminded partners” are intent on seeing the TPP as a negotiation that will finally allow their dairy and poultry exporters to have greater access to the Canadian market. The Conservative government insists it will defend supply management protections in the talks, but the

negotiations represent the latest challenge for the sector. Mexico was also accepted as a TPP negotiating country. Other countries at the table are the United States, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Peru, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and Vietnam. Canada says the TPP would open markets to economies worth more than $20 trillion. The prospect that Japan could join in coming years makes it more attractive. A deal in TPP talks is not expected for years.

PARIS, France (Reuters) — Germany and France have endorsed a European Commission proposal for a nominal freeze in agricultural spending at 2013 levels from 2014 to 2020. Germany is the largest contributor to the European Union’s budget and France the largest beneficiary of farm subsidies under the Common Agriculture Policy, which consumes 40 percent of the bloc’s total budget. The agriculture ministers of the two countries, Ilse Aigner and Stephane Le Foll, met in Berlin in early October. “They (the ministers) support the commission’s proposal to maintain the agricultural budget to the nominal level of 2013 for the period 20142020,” a statement said. Officials hope to conclude negotiations on the EU’s next long-term budget, worth almost $1.3 trillion over seven years, by the end of this year with EU leaders due to discuss the issue at a Nov. 22-23 summit in Brussels. The joint statement stressed the CAP’s importance for growth, employment, environment and innovation in Europe’s rural areas as well as for maintaining global food production, and noted that farm spending was already facing a real-terms decline as part of the EC’s proposals. Aigner and Le Foll opposed calls from some countries to cut direct payments to farmers, which make up the largest part of the CAP budget at $50 billion a year out of a total of $70 billion. Countries calling for a cut in direct subsidies include Britain, Sweden and the Netherlands. Cyprus, which holds the EU presidency and thus leads talks on the budget, has said cuts to all areas of the EU budget are inevitable. Paris and Berlin would be prepared to see a convergence of direct payment levels between member states, provided it was reasonable and gradual, the statement said. Most farmers in former communist EU member countries receive less than the EU average. The ministers also agreed on the need to maintain EU sugar quotas until 2020, in contrast to the commission’s proposal to end production quotas and minimum beet prices from 2015. The commission’s proposal was designed to boost production and avoid sugar shortages on the European market, while allowing an increase in EU sugar exports. The ministers supported the commission’s proposals to make onethird of direct payments conditional on farmers meeting new environmental criteria, although they argued for less prescriptive rules than those proposed by the EC. “They call for a more efficient implementation at administrative level and asked the commission to demonstrate the necessary flexibility to ensure a pragmatic application,” the statement said. A joint working group had been set up to look into the matter.





Westeel takes grain storage abroad Markets opening up | Company hopes to build storage infrastructure BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

WINNIPEG — There are agricultural statistics that grab your attention and other stats that grab you by the throat. The annual crop loss in India falls into the throat category. “The minister of agriculture of India claims they lose 22 percent of everything they crop. So they grow 400 million tonnes of crop every year and they lose 88 million tonnes through rot, contamination and animals,” said Colin Osborne, president of Vicwest, which owns Westeel grain bins. “To put that in perspective, Canada only grows about 72 million (tonnes per year).” The shocking statistic is one reason why Westeel decided several years ago to market its steel storage bins around the globe, Osborne said during a speech at a business networking conference in Winnipeg in midOctober. Westeel, which sells 8,000 grain silos per year and has 60 percent market share in Canada, could have focused solely on the North American market for years to come. However, company leaders concluded the firm couldn’t pass up the incredible opportunities outside of North America. “If you went to Russia, you wouldn’t see bag storage (of grain), but you would see storage on the ground or under a metal roof. So, they have crop losses of 10 to 15 percent,” he said. “In Canada crop losses are one percent or less.” After jumping into the global marketplace, Westeel managers quickly identified certain countries where they could establish a foothold, including France, Germany, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Russia. In France, for instance, Westeel learned that metal storage wasn’t

commonly practiced and farmers have sufficient land and resources to invest in superior grain storage. “(In France), there was a lot of onground storage and a lot of square building storage,” Osborne said. “There are many farms that are 100 hectares (250 acres) and there are agribusiness people that operate large farm co-ops.” In Kazakhstan and Russia, individual farmers don’t have the money to buy out their neighbours and expand their farms, Osborne said. However, agribusiness firms and private equity companies are buying out landowners and establishing large scale farms, so those companies will spend money on steel grain bins. North Africa and the Middle East might become a massive market for Westeel in the future, Osborne said. Millers and grain processors need high volume bins to store local and imported grain to hedge against price volatility. Vicwest had multiple orders in North Africa before the Arab Spring destabilized the region. “Algeria, Nigeria, Morocco, Iran … we’re trying to build up agriculture storage infrastructure. Then, of course, the world kind of fell apart,” Osborne said in an interview following his speech. “Most of North Africa and parts of the Middle East will be fantastic markets when they settle down (politically).” Osborne said crop losses will likely remain a quandary in India for many years because a typical farm is less than eight acres and farmers barely have enough cash to survive. However, the world is short of food and many countries suffer grain losses of 10, 15 or 20 percent, so Osborne thinks governments and global aid organizations will eventually make food storage a priority. “I think there will be a time when

governments step up … to fund it because it is the low hanging fruit,” he said. “The UN did a study in Afghanistan before the war broke out. They put tiny little silos on donkeys and took them out to the farm community. They improved crop yield by 15 percent.” Vicwest may be pursuing global opportunities, but the firm isn’t

ignoring its roots, Osborne said. In September, the company signed a deal with the FWS Group, a Winnipeg designer and builder of residential and commercial properties, to construct Westeel storage systems in Western Canada. Randy Roller, FWS vice-president and general manager, said the partnership will help his company in the post-CWB era.

“With the recent changes in Canadian grain marketing, we believe there will be a significant shift to how grain will be stored and handled throughout Western Canada,” Roller said. “By offering a premier steel storage option to our concrete slipform designs, we will increase the ability to meet our clients ever changing requirements.”

Poland only bright spot among dismal European harvest Weather slashes yields | While many Eastern European countries saw corn production cut in half, Poland’s crop is up a million tonnes over 2011 SOFIA, Bulgaria — Sizzling temperatures and lack of rain have scorched corn crops across Eastern Europe, further reducing global supplies already hit by the worst drought in the United States in 50 years. Heat waves and lack of moisture in the corn producing countries of Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria were the main reasons why the European Union’s crop monitoring unit cut its outlook for average EU corn yields to 2.45 tonnes per acre. Corn harvests are almost half done in Eastern Europe’s major producing countries, and crops are estimated to be down 40 to 50 percent from last

year’s abundant yield, with Poland being the only exception. Analyst Strategie Grains also cut its EU corn outlook to 53.5 million tonnes in September, down 4.3 million on last month’s estimate and 19 percent lower than last year’s bumper crop. The smaller crops will be enough to meet the domestic needs of the Eastern European countries, but exports are likely to be limited. Romania, which was the EU’s second largest corn producer in 2011 after France, sees its crop dropping significantly from last year’s 11.5 million tonnes, with grain analysts forecasting that its 2012 yields will be cut

in half to one tonne per acre. “We don’t compare it with 2011, which was an exceptional year, with large production. This year’s estimations have shown there will be important losses for maize,” said agriculture minister Daniel Constantin. One of the worst droughts to hit Hungary in 20 years slashed yields, and its corn crop is expected to be 43 to 50 percent lower from a year ago, the Hungarian farm ministry said. “On the basis of the data available so far, the final crop can be estimated with great certainty, this can come in at about 4.4 to 4.5 million tonnes.” The crop will be enough to meet

Hungary’s domestic needs, but the ministry did not expect much of the crop to be available for exports. Ukraine, which increased the area seeded to corn by 28 percent to 11 million acres in 2012, is likely to harvest 21 million tonnes because of poor weather. The country harvested a record 22.7 million tonnes in 2011 and exported a record 14 million tonnes. Exports are expected to be about 12.6 million tonnes in 2012-13, the Kievbased ProAgro consultancy said. In Bulgaria, extensive heat and drought cut corn yields in half, reducing the crop to 1.2 million

tonnes from 2.2 million harvested in 2011, said Angel Vukadinov, chair of the grain producers union. “The maize is almost taken in, but our worst fears have materialized. The yields are significantly lower,” he said. Poland is the only Eastern European country to see a better corn crop this year. Its corn acreage increased 62 percent because farmers had to replant damaged wheat sowings in the spring and weather has been favourable since. Poland is to expected to harvest 3.5 million tonnes of corn compared to 2.4 million a year ago, officials said.

CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — Drought conditions in the United States grew even worse in early October as historic drought conditions crept north and threatened new winter wheat planting in several states. September was the driest in 118 years of U.S. record keeping for North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana and was the third-driest September for Nebraska and Oregon, said Mark Svoboda, a climatologist with the University of Nebraska’s National Drought Mitigation Center. Farmers trying to plant the nation’s new winter wheat crop are struggling over whether it is worthwhile to plant into bone-dry soil in those states, said Svoboda. “We had a brutally dry September. There is a lot of concern now about no moisture,” Svoboda said. “A lot of folks are holding off and wondering if they should even plant winter wheat and plant spring wheat instead.” Sixty-nine percent of the U.S. winter wheat area is suffering from some level of drought, Svoboda said. Roughly 63.55 percent of the contiguous United States was under at least moderate drought as of Oct. 9, down from 64.58 percent a week earlier, according to the Drought Monitor, a weekly compilation of data gathered by federal and academic scientists. However, the portion of the United States under “exceptional” drought, which is the most dire classification, rose to 6.18 percent, up from 6.07 percent a week earlier. In the High Plains, which includes Nebraska and the Dakotas, severe or worse drought levels covered 87.58 percent of the region, up from 87.51 percent the previous week. An estimated 28.24 percent of the region was in the worst level of drought, up from 27.91 percent a week earlier. In Kansas, a top wheat growing state, drought levels improved slightly over the last week. Extreme drought, the second-worst level of drought, expanded to 95.70 percent of the state, up from 93.25 percent a week ago, though the worst level of drought was at 44.63 percent, down from 44.73 percent.





Nigerian farmers sue oil firm over damages THE HAGUE, The Netherlands (Reuters) — Four Nigerian villagers took Royal Dutch Shell to court Oct. 11 in a landmark pollution case that campaigners said could open the door to more compensation claims against international companies. The fishermen and farmers, together with the Friends of the Earth campaign group, accuse the oil company of polluting land and waterways around their homes in the Niger Delta region of Africa’s top energy producer. Shell has denied responsibility, saying the leaks were caused by sabotage. The villagers launched their claim in a civil court in The Hague, where Shell has its joint global headquarters. It is the first time a Dutch-registered company has been sued in a Dutch court for offences allegedly carried out by a foreign subsidiary. Friends of the Earth said the claim, if successful, could open up a new way for plaintiffs to take on multinationals, by suing their parent companies in their home countries. The villagers, who appeared in court, want unspecified damages, saying Shell and other corporations were responsible for pollution from three oil spills between 2004 and 2007. “My community is a ghost land as a

result of the devastation. We had good vegetation. Today, people have respiratory problems and are getting sick,” said one of the plaintiffs, Eric Doo, from the Goi community, which lives between two pipelines. “Shell is aware of the whole devastation. I want them to pay compensation, to clean up the pollution so we can grow our crops and fish again.” Shell says the pollution was caused by thieves breaking into pipelines to steal the oil, and believes it has played its part in cleaning it up. “The matter has been resolved as far as we are concerned and we do not properly understand why Friends of the Earth has submitted the case,” said Allard Castelein, Shell’s vice-president for environment. The biggest pollution problem in the Niger Delta is caused by thieves who steal oil from Shell’s installations, he said. Around 150,000 barrels of oil are stolen every day in the Delta, worth $6 billion a year. Friends of the Earth said other companies could face similar claims in European Union cities if it won the case. “It opens up a range of possibilities for people from poor countries to use the legal system to seek compensation from companies,” said Geert Ritsema,

international affairs co-ordinator for the environmental group. The Nigerians’ lawyer, Channa Samkalden, told the court Shell had failed to maintain pipelines, clean up leaks and prevent pollution. “It was insufficient maintenance, not sabotage, that was responsible for the leaks.... Shell did not operate as a conscientious oil company,” she said. With 31 million inhabitants, the

Niger Delta is one of the world’s most important wetland and coastal marine ecosystems. It is an important source of food for the poor, rural population. Last year, the United Nations said in a report the government and multinational oil companies, particularly Shell, were responsible for 50 years of oil pollution that had devastated the Ogoniland region, part of the Niger Delta.

The government and oil firms have pledged to clean up the region and other parts of the delta, but residents say they have seen little action. Shell Petroleum Development Co . is the largest oil and gas company in Nigeria, with production capacity of more than one million barrels of oil equivalent per day. Three judges are expected to deliver their verdict on the Hague case in the new year.

Oxfam urges large-scale land investment freeze WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — Global development group Oxfam has called on the World Bank to suspend financing for large-scale land acquisitions to ensure that its practices do not encourage foreign land grabs in developing countries. Oxfam urged Jim Yong Kim, the lender’s new president, to announce a six-month moratorium on land investments by the bank at meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank in Tokyo. But senior bank officials said it would be a mistake to suspend the World Bank’s involvement at a time when global food prices are rising and there is growing interest by foreign investors in buying farmland in Asia, Latin America and Africa. The 2008-2009 global food price crisis prompted a scramble for land in parts of Asia, Africa and Latin America, and widespread fears of land grabbing. Madagascar’s president was toppled in 2009 after he negotiated a deal with South Korea’s Daewoo Logistics to lease half the island’s arable land to grow food and ship it to Asia. The World Bank has long argued that Africa needs more investments in agriculture that would not only help modernize farming practices but also create jobs and new markets for local farmers. The lender has boosted its investment in agriculture to $9.5 billion a year from $2.5 billion annually in 2008. Oxfam said the World Bank was in a unique position as both a financier, through its private-sector lending arm the International Finance Corp., and adviser to developing countries to ensure land deals are transparent and not forcing local communities off land

According to Oxfam, more than 60 percent of investments in agricultural land by foreign investors between 2000 and 2010 were in developing countries with serious hunger problems.

“The bank can set an example to investors and government that could help put a stop to these human rights abuses and ensure that investors genuinely help boost development in some of the poorest communities,” Jeremy Hobbs, Oxfam’s executive

director, said. Juergen Voegele, director of the World Bank’s Agriculture and Rural Development Department, said the bank could be more effective by remaining involved while helping governments address the problem.

“We do not believe that Oxfam’s call for a moratorium on World Bank Group-related investments is an appropriate course of action at this point, particularly not at a time of rapidly rising and very volatile food prices,” Voegele told Reuters.

NEWS “We certainly do not believe this will help reduce instances of abusive practices that are out there; we do know that, because it would clearly target the wrong stakeholders and the wrong audiences,” he added. “We are the ones who are doing everything we can to improve these poor practices”. Oxfam said, however, a moratorium would give the World Bank time to “put its own house in order” and send a clear signal to governments and investors it would not tolerate land grabbing. It said the World Bank should insist on more transparency in land deals to limit abuses, ensure communities are informed so they can accept or refuse projects; and make sure land rights are protected. Many deals are government to government and there are questions whether investors pay fair prices. Voegele said over the past two years the World Bank had worked with foreign agencies and governments to draft voluntary guidelines on land investments. “Just like Oxfam we are concerned these practices are not transparent and they are sometimes hurting poor farmers. Almost 90 percent of what we do is helping smallholders get access to markets and increase productivity,” he added. Contrary to reports that China was leading the rush for land in developing countries, Voegele said investors from the United States, Canada and Europe were also scooping up land abroad. “Two or three years ago we found there was a lot more hype than actual action on the ground. Now that is changing a little bit, but at that time a very significant number of those deals were speculative deals -- an announcement but nothing happened,” he added. “Speculative land investment is something neither the bank nor the IFC supports because it does not help anybody.”




Gov’t, banks help African farmers with finances, education programs Farmers reluctant to borrow | Organizations teaching business skills, providing loan guarantees JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (Reuters) — African agriculture has a big investment problem: lots of private equity interest but few opportunities because most farms and companies are too small to absorb the cash or provide attractive returns. Only one-third of the continent’s 1.5 billion acres of arable land is under cultivation and large quantities of water are untapped, making it the last great agricultural frontier. Soaring grain prices and global food inflation are spurring investor interest in African farming, trends that are also eating into household income on the world’s poorest continent and threatening food riots such as those seen in 2008. The stakes are high in a region where agriculture still accounts for one-third of gross domestic product but remains undeveloped and rainfed, with most farms tilled by peasants for subsistence instead of sale. “What Africa has going for itself is that it has the land availability and space to grow agricultural production in a much more significant manner,” said Joseph Rohm, a portfolio manager at Investec Asset Management, which oversees $3 billion in Africa. African agriculture attracted $102 million in private equity investment in the first six months of 2012, compared with $54 million in 2011,

The private sector needs to see a viable business opportunity from the agriculture sector, and the agriculture actors need to practice their operations as a business. NIXON BUGO FINANCING OFFICER

according to the U.S.-based Emerging Markets Private Equity Association. Some of that was by Standard Chartered, which spent $74 million earlier this year on a minority stake in grain and fertilizer trader Export Trading Group and another $20 million for an indirect stake in Zimbabwe’s horticultural firm Ariston. The targets are either too small or too early in their development and are grappling with price and weather risks, which makes deals scarce, said Peter Baird, Standard Chartered’s head of private equity for Africa. “It’s hard to either acquire existing assets or to cobble together investible opportunities,” he said. Many investors would rather put their money in the food chain rather than actual farming, said Daniel Broby, chief investment officer at specialist frontier market investment manager Silk Invest. The fund’s private equity arm is looking at a second closing for its $150 million African Food Fund by

2013 and has already invested in an Ethiopian biscuit manufacturer and a Nigerian fast food chain. Standard Bank’s head of agriculture in Africa Mohit Arora said seven economies with top agricultural potential need at least $25 billion in public and private spending over the next three to eight years to expand the sector. Ethiopia requires $11 billion until 2020. However, a significant portion of the total private funds raised for the region remained idle last year. “While the investors have gone out and raised quite a lot of money, putting that money to use is another thing,” Arora said. Operating in Africa comes with unique challenges, such as opaque land rights, fragmented land in some areas, lack of skills and poor or nonexistent infrastructure. Even when there is ready financing, small farmers are reluctant to borrow because many are financially illiterate, cannot write up

business plans or are put off by high interest rates. Small farmers make up 70 percent of agricultural activity on the continent. To address this, the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) is guaranteeing commercial bank loans for agriculture and teaching farmers how to run their farms like enterprises. The organization, which is supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has made available $17 million in guarantees that has enabled banks to lend another $160 million. Some governments are now catching up and providing similar incentives. Nigeria is offering commercial banks $500 million to unlock $3 billion. In Tanzania, where AGRA’s $2 million in guarantees to the National Microfinance Bank led to $10 million in loans, corn yields on some farms have tripled to 1.8 tonnes per acre. “The private sector needs to see a viable business opportunity from the agriculture sector, and the agriculture actors need to practice their operations as a business,” said Nixon Bugo, an innovative financing officer at AGRA. African governments are allocating more budget resources to farming, but the amounts are still woefully low and the outlook for Africa’s hungry millions remains precarious.





One in eight worldwide goes hungry: UN report Numbers ‘unacceptable’ | Report lists biofuel demand, as well as rising costs and drought, as contributing factors ROME, Italy (Reuters) — One out of every eight people in the world is chronically undernourished, the United Nations’ food agencies said last week, and aid groups warned that rising food prices could reverse gains in the fight against hunger. In a report on food insecurity, the UN agencies said 868 million people were hungry in 2010-12, or about 12.5 percent of the world’s population, down more sharply than previously estimated from about 1 billion, or 18.6 percent in 1990-92. The new figures, based on a revised

calculation method and more up-todate data, are lower than the last estimates for recent years that pegged the number of hungry people at 925 million in 2010 and 1.02 billion in 2009. “That is better news than we have had in the past, but it still means that one person in every eight goes hungry. That is unacceptable, especially when we live in a world of plenty,” said Jose Graziano da Silva, director general of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). “Most of the progress in hunger

reduction was made until 2006, as food price levels continued to decline. With the rise in food prices and the economic crisis that followed, there have been many fewer advances,” he warned. Food prices have risen over the past few months, fuelled by drought in the United States, Russia and other major grain exporters, and FAO expects prices to remain close to levels reached during the 2008 food crisis. But Graziano da Silva said the world can still achieve the Millenni-

um Development Goal to halve the prevalence of undernourishment in the developing world by 2015. The goal is one of a series of targets adopted by world leaders at the United Nations in 2000 to slash poverty, hunger and disease in poor countries by 2015. Economic recovery, especially in the agriculture sector, will be crucial for sustained hunger reduction, according to the report by FAO, the World Food Program (WFP) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).

“Agricultural growth involving smallholders, especially women, will be most effective in reducing extreme poverty and hunger when it generates employment for the poor,” the agencies said. They said factors holding up progress include growing biofuel demand, financial speculation in food commodity markets and inefficiencies in food supply and distribution which lead to almost a third of total production being wasted. Luca Chinotti from aid agency Oxfam said lack of political action to tackle high food prices, gender inequality, land grabs and climate change risked reversing past gains in the fight against hunger. “The fact that ... more than the population of the U.S., Europe and Canada are hungry in a world which produces enough for everyone to eat is the biggest scandal of our time,” he said. He suggested building up food reserves as a buffer to high prices and introducing protection programs for those most at risk of hunger. The Committee on World Food Security, an intergovernmental body, was set to meet in Rome on Oct. 16, after Western Producer deadlines, when a ministerial meeting will discuss high food prices.

India can offer quality wheat, says minister NEW DELHI, India (Reuters) — India can supply Iran with high quality wheat if Tehran decides to finalize purchasing negotiations hampered for months by concerns over a fungal disease, farm minister Sharad Pawar said. Pawar’s comments come as an Indian delegation is visiting Iran, aiming to clinch a deal to export about 2.5 million tonnes of wheat at around $300 a tonne free on board (FOB). India is the world’s second biggest wheat producer, and any purchase by Iran will help to meet payments for Iranian oil and fix an imbalance in trade in favour of Tehran. “Our effort is to export quality wheat from states like Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, which are free from karnal bunt,” Pawar said at the annual Economic Editors Conference. Karnal bunt is a fungal disease that deteriorates the quality of wheat. India is Iran’s second-biggest oil customer after China but western sanctions aimed at choking off funding for Iran’s controversial nuclear program have made payments for crude imports difficult. A record output has left India with plenty of wheat.


Brazil plants more soybeans in wake of U.S. drought Prices drive growth | Production could exceed 80 million tonnes, outpacing U.S. growers SAO PAULO, Brazil (Reuters) — Brazil should produce a record soybean crop that may be up to 25 percent larger than last season’s as farmers plant more in reaction to high prices caused by the drought in the United States, the government said. Soybean output should be between 80 million and 82.8 million tonnes as yields return to normal after dry weather damaged Brazil’s 2011-12 crop, the government said. Productivity should increase 14.3 percent to 2.23 tonnes per acre compared to 1.07 tonnes per acre last season. Brazil’s area planted with soybeans should increase to 68 million acres from last year’s 62 million acres, supply agency Conab said in its first crop report of the season. “This growth is due to excellent prices seen in the 2011-12 season that broke historic records due to the drop in production in the main producing countries,” the agency said in reference to the worst U.S. drought in more than half a century. Brazil has been the world’s No. 2 soybean grower in recent years but will likely surpass the United States in oilseed production this season. The U.S. Department of Agriculture expects Brazil to produce 81 million tonnes of soybeans compared to 72 million tonnes in the dry United States. “As long as the climate co-operates in Brazil, we will have a better harvest than anyone and overtake the United States in soybean production,” said Safras e Mercado analyst Luiz Fernando Gutierrez in the southern city of Porto Alegre. Safras forecasts an 82.3-million-tonne crop. The U.S. harvest is turning out to be a

bit better than analysts originally expected, causing soy prices in Chicago to fall 11 percent in three weeks. But global supplies will likely be tight until expected bumper crops from Brazil and neighbouring Argentina are ready for export in January or February. Conab said it expects nearly half of Brazil’s soybean crop or 38.25 million tonnes to be crushed in Brazil, with an estimated 36.25 million tonnes destined for export. Brazil will likely export 31.25 million tonnes of the 2011-12 crop, Conab said. The agency expects end-of-season stocks to quadruple by this time next year to about 4.3 million tonnes, up from about 946,000 tonnes in stock last month. That means Brazilian ranchers shouldn’t have to import livestock feed like they did after a drought caused a local grain shortage this year. Conab said Brazil’s corn crop would be between 71.9 million and 73.2 million tonnes, compared with 72.6 million tonnes in 2011-12.

Streamlining helps Cargill bounce back in first quarter Drought may hurt bottom line | Grain handling volumes are expected to be lower than previous predictions CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — Cargill Inc. says its quarterly earnings have risen strongly, boosted by all five main business segments, but cautioned the impact of the worst U.S. drought in a half century was still unfolding. It reported net earnings of $975 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 ended Aug. 31, compared to $236 million for the same quarter a year ago. The profit compared with $73 million for the March-May quarter, its lowest quarterly earnings since 1991. Revenues for the first quarter

dipped to $33.8 billion from $34.6 billion a year earlier, the company said in a statement. Greg Page, Cargill’s chief executive officer, said the improved performance was the result of the broad reach of its operations into most major areas of the world’s food production systems. However, he warned that the full effects of drought and other weatherrelated crop damage were still working through the supply chain and would challenge food processors, livestock feeders and exporters in the months ahead.

By investing steadily, we’ve been able to significantly boost the breadth and depth of the products and services we offer our customers. GREG PAGE CARGILL CEO

Cargill, which is one of the world’s largest privately held corporations, said quarterly results were balanced, with improved earnings across all

five business segments. There were no significant losses in any one business unit and results benefited from efforts in the past 12 months to lower costs, streamline work flows and reassess capital spending. “By investing steadily, we’ve been able to significantly boost the breadth and depth of the products and services we offer our customers,” Page said. “And that has strengthened the balance, diversification and resilience we strive for in our business.” He said Cargill has spent $8.1 billion on supply chain investments in

the last two years. The company said the drought in the United States, the largest exporter of corn, soybeans and wheat and other food products, will continue to present challenges, but crop damage in other areas, notably the Black Sea region in Europe, will do the same. “Cargill’s North American grain handling volumes for exports are anticipated to be lower than predrought expectations, and it may be a challenging year for the company’s animal protein businesses globally,” the company said in a written statement.

N O FEES - N O C OM M IS S ION S To Freshwater Land Holdings Co. Ltd. My wife and I recently made the decision to sell our 5 quarters of farmland between Semans and Nokomis, Saskatchewan and we were very pleased with the service that was given to us by Doug Rue. His agricultural background and his business acumen made him the perfect fit for us in terms of completing a “worry-free” transaction. The process was swift and easy and we were more than pleased with the price we received for the land. I particularly enjoyed my conversations with Doug and his attention to detail with respect to following up with us. Trent & Lorette Fraser

Turkey farmers are moving toward a total flock care program that covers biosecurity requirements, housing, access to feed and water and treatment of sick birds. |



New codes cover animal housing, health, transport Retailers, consumers want standards | The dilemma is to address concerns without putting producers out of business BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

TORONTO — Updated codes of practice for better farm animal welfare are on the drawing board, but few producers will use them if these manuals are not practical. Codes for humane animal handling and care have existed since the 1980s. Some provinces incorporated them into animal care legislation and some associations made them part of their quality assurance programs. However, those involved in writing the updates want a broader acceptance of the guidelines among individual producers. “Mailing out codes of practice is great, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that people are actually opening the book and looking at it,” said Jackie Wepruk, manager of the National Farm Animal Care Council. Retailers and consumers want proof that the codes are being followed, she said at an animal welfare symposium organized by the Canadian Meat Council in Toronto Oct. 11-12. Codes for dairy, beef cattle, mink, ranched fox, pigs, equine, sheep, poultry and layers as well as codes for transport of farm animals are set for completion in 2013 and 2014. The dairy code of practice was completed in 2009 and is being tested in the field. “Every single committee is dealing with the same kinds of issues,” said Wepruk. All must address pain management, comfortable housing systems and feed requirements without putting farmers out of business. That could be a challenge for hog producers, said Catherine Scovil of the Canadian Pork Council. The pork code of practice is due in 2013 and could require farmers to make expensive changes in their barns.

“This is going to happen to an industry that really is quite fragile,” she said. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency also expects certain standards once animals are shipped to processors, said welfare specialist Anne Allen. “CFIA does not have any clear regulatory authority on farm. Unless there is a disease outbreak, we are not there,” she said. It takes over once animals arrive at a federally inspected slaughter plant. A revised chapter about meat processing regulations is being released in January to ensure processors have written animal welfare programs similar in format to their hazard analysis critical control points plans. Federal inspectors expect animals to arrive in good condition because they are being used to make food. “We need to demonstrate that animal welfare standards are being met and what the codes do … is demonstrate that we are doing things right and that the animals being made into food in federal establishments meet a particular standard,” she said. The dairy and pork industries have incorporated animal welfare into their on-farm food safety programs. While programs are described as voluntary, no federal processors will deal with them if they are not certified, said Wepruk. Industry representatives provided outlines of where their respective codes of practices stand.

highly recommended requirements. It is run in conjunction with the onfarm food safety program, and annual audits were initiated in 2009 to validate implementation and certification. About 65 percent of Canadian chicken farms are certified. Ninety percent will be certified next year, although some provinces say they have 100 percent certification. The program covers feed and water requirements, environmental conditions such as humidity, temperature and ammonia controls, bird density, biosecurity, health care practices, catching and loading, pest control and transportation.



Chicken Farmers of Canada released the first draft of its code of practice in 2009 with consultation from more than 40 stakeholders, said spokesperson Steve Leech. The animal care program is meant to show the public and government that proper care was used at the farm level and consists of mandatory and

The CFIA has reviewed the Turkey Farmers of Canada quality assurance program and growers are moving toward a total flock care program that will be managed the same way as the food safety program, said Colleen McElwain. Codes have been in place since 1989, but the first one dealt with all

Pork The hog industry introduced codes of practice in 1984 and 1993 with an updated version expected next year. The hog industry wants one national standard of good care that producers, researchers, processors and government can support, said Scovil. The Canadian pork quality assurance program was merged this year with an animal welfare program. More than 93 percent of pork produced in Canada is from CQA farms. Although it is called a voluntary program, it is a condition of sale to most federal plants in Canada. Farms undergo an assessment in which they are visited by auditors once per year, w ith document reviews in the second and third years. The cycle then repeats.

poultry without special consideration for turkeys, she said. To join the flock care initiative, farmers must already be on an onfar m food safety program that includes biosecurity, bird health, feed and water directives. Certification for the two programs is separate. Farmers conduct a self audit twice a year and the provincial marketing boards audit producers annually. On-farm food safety covers catchers, transportation and biosecurity requirements while the flock care program oversees the climate in the barn, access to feed and water, lighting, density, litter management and treatment of sick or injured birds. Staff must be trained to handle birds, and the number of birds not shipped because of welfare concerns needs to be recorded. Beef The beef industry developed a voluntary humane code of practice in 1991 and plans to release a new version in 2013. This time there is a clear separation of requirements and recommended practices, said Ryder Lee of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association. It is not a how-to farm manual. Instead, it focuses on areas where animal welfare could be an issue, including handling painful procedures such as dehorning, castration and branding, feedlot health, weaning methods and managing animals that live mostly outdoors. Eggs Egg Farmers of Canada released its last code in 2003 and plans a new version next year, said spokesperson Chris Nash. There are 1,000 producer members, and Egg Farmers of Canada staff inspects each farm annually. Corrections may be recommended, and

followups are done to make sure problems were fixed. Farms must achieve near perfect scores on cage density, cage conditions, records for feed treatments, ammonia concentrations, feather scoring and euthanasia. The code will be outcome based, and producers will have to adapt their animal care programs to comply. Many types of production systems exist in Canada, including conventional cage housing, free run production, aviaries and enriched cages, which are larger units with nest boxes and perches. Canadian hatching egg producers This industry deals mostly with producing fertile eggs for hatcheries. The breeding hens require careful management on the farm, where they produce eggs for about a year. Some are shipped for processing at the end of the cycle, said Viki Sikur, an animal welfare officer with the organization. The last code was released in 2003 with an emphasis on proper animal care and best practices suited to Canadian conditions. Industry practices have changed and the birds are genetically different since the last code was released, so new management guidelines are needed, said Sikur. Each producer receives operating manuals, but all involved agree they want a national program that is implemented by the provinces. The program needs to be based on current research, regulations and industry standards that are practical for breeder operations. The welfare codes of practice are to be reviewed in parallel with the Canadian Hatching Egg Producers quality program. For more information, visit www.

Living fences slow to catch on Economic returns | Trees would save on the cost of sand, salt and snow removal

Shelter belts called vegetative environmental buffers can be used to suppress odours from livestock operations. | FILE PHOTO SHELTER BELTS | ODOUR REDUCING CAPABILITY

Tree buffers suck up odour, dust Pollutants trapped | Design of the yard, type of trees and wind direction play role in effectiveness STORIES BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

INTERNATIONAL PEACE GARDEN, Manitoba-North Dakota border — Locating intensive livestock operations away from populated areas is one way to keep odour from being an issue. Trees are another. Shelter belts known as vegetative environmental buffers (VEB) can trap air pollutants and dust escaping from large-scale hog and poultry barns, said John Tyndall, a professor of natural resource economics at Iowa State University. He told the Great Plains Windbreak conference that a VEB can reduce by five to 15 percent the odour concentration moving downwind of a barn at a cost of one to three cents per pig. However, the reduction depends on many other factors, including weather, tree height and emissions. The familiar manure smell is made up of more than 400 individual chemicals that are collectively known as volatile organic compounds. Ammonia is one component, but it’s light and tends to dissipate

quickly. Hydrogen sulfide is heavier than air, moves slowly and rarely goes beyond the farm. The components that stick to dust are the ones that cause the problems. Tyndall said controlling particulate movement will control odour movement. Changing diet and using feed additives can have a small effect on the volatile organic compounds. Preventing their release through the use of air filters and vent scrubbers can also help. However, these two methods won’t completely eliminate the problem. Air will escape and, once it does, landscape features or the hundreds of temperature inversions that occur during the summer can trap it, Tyndall said. “Once it’s released into the atmosphere and it’s picked up by prevailing winds and it’s moving downwind, there’s sort of this tertiary last line of defence,” he said. “That’s where VEBs come into play.” VEBs create mechanical turbulence that intercepts the particles that would be carried away from the barn. Heavier particulates drop out of the airstream and land on the

Trees are capable of grabbing and holding onto a tremendous amount of material. We’ve all seen trees along the roadside covered in dust. JOHN TYNDALL PROFESSOR OF NATURAL RESOURCE ECONOMICS

leaves and branches of the trees. “Trees are capable of grabbing and holding onto a tremendous amount of material. We’ve all seen trees along the roadside covered in dust.” Tyndall said 90 percent of particulates are the right size for trees to grab. Their irregular shape makes it easier, and once the trees are covered, the dust itself is good at grabbing other dust, he said. One row of trees can do the trick, but several rows are better, he said. Precipitation helps keep the trees healthy; all that dust isn’t good for them. Tyndall cautioned that the benefits of shelter belts in odour mitigation

are site specific. The design of the yard, the trees and wind direction all have a part to play. However, he said there is no doubt that they work. As well, he said research has found the visual screen that VEBs provide lead people to believe the odour isn’t as bad. “As farms are viewed as being more attractive, perceptions of odour are reduced,” he said. Focus groups in Iowa said the more trees the better. “There was high appreciation for the visual response to odour issues,” Tyndall said, noting that other odour suppression methods can’t be seen or appear to be industrial. In the United States, VEBs are incorporated into the design for new buildings. Some older facilities weren’t situated properly and adding trees can be challenging, he added. Problems can arise around snow deposits, ventilation issues if the trees are too close to the barn and visibility issues for large trucks entering and leaving the facility. Proper design and maintenance are necessary, he said.

INTERNATIONAL PEACE GARDEN, Manitoba-North Dakota border — Snow will soon be blowing over the Prairies, obstructing drivers’ vision and creating hazardous roads. Living snow fences are one solution that some American states are trying but that farmers haven’t exactly embraced. Dean Current, director of the Centre for Integrated Natural Resources Management at the University of Minnesota, said his state’s transportation department identified 3,800 problem areas where a living snow fence could help keep snow off the road. It established a program with the U.S. Department of Agriculture under the Conservation Reserve Program and Environmental Quality Incentives Program to pay farmers to grow and maintain the windbreaks. Another program also pays farmers to leave standing corn rows. Current said the adoption rate has been low, even with the incentives and clear evidence of safety and transportation benefits. Payments have been made for several years and only 2.3 percent of the problem areas have been addressed. In 2011, the program spent only 20 percent of its budget, he said. Environmental benefits A study done last year found that there would be economic returns of more than $1.3 million per year if 40 percent of the sites were planted with living snow fences. “That could be applied to more living snow fence and getting more landowners involved,” Current said. The transportation department would avoid the costs of sand, salt and snow removal. Societal benefits include fewer accidents, better travel time, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and sequestered carbon. However, in the same study farmers identified several costs and constraints to the program. Current and others found the main issue was the risk associated with maintaining the trees, including replacing trees that died, and the landowners’ liability. The study revealed that landowners wanted better compensation for the first, second and third years after the living snow fence was established, which is when maintenance costs are highest. Farmers also cite higher costs and inconvenience trying to farm around the trees.





Manitoba pilot program offers incentive to plant shelter belts Trees ripped out | Farmers want to put the maximum acres to work BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

INTERNATIONAL PEACE GARDEN, Manitoba-North Dakota border — Trees are often the first to suffer in large-scale agriculture. Shelter belts that have stood for 100 years are ripped out to accommodate large equipment and allow farmers to earn more per acre. This is particularly true in areas where potatoes are the crop of choice. Ralph Oliver of the Rural Municipality of North Cypress in Manitoba said a large increase in land values and the desire to capture every dollar from every acre has led many to rip out the trees. In some cases, windbreaks that are only two or three years old have been torn out by new owners. Growers and processors have certain quality expectations that shelter belts can affect, he said at the Great Plains Windbreak conference. Shelter belts can create dead areas in the field, where less ventilation results in the perfect environment for disease. Potatoes are grown under irrigation, and trees can interfere with the pivots. Oliver said shelter belts are safe only when the land is rented and the owner requests the trees not be removed. The RM is working with the Whitemud Watershed Conservation District to try to change that. The 1.8 million acre district has a long history of planting shelter belts. Crews have planted 2,700 kilometres of trees since 1975. The peak year saw 188 km planted, and the best years always followed drought. “This year we put in five miles (eight km),” said district manager Chris Reynolds. “We did not plant a single field to shelter belt last year.” Only trees to protect yard sites seem to be desirable. Oliver said the days of drought are not over. Last year, topsoil from potato fields blew over a neighbouring hay field and road and had to be scraped off. He said the soil in the area is sandy, and potatoes leave virtually no trash cover. On a three-year rotation, only once in three years will a farmer plant a crop that leaves good cover and prevents the soil from blowing away. But farmers continue to remove the trees. “We realize farmers are removing

shelter belts for good reason.” However, he said there has to be a happy medium. A pilot program in the conservation district next year will offer an incentive to re-establish shelter belts. Landowners will receive $500 per mile, up to $1,000 per landowner, to plant trees spaced a quarter mile apart. “It’s not ideal but it’s probably the

only thing that will work.” The district will plant the trees in consultation with the co-operating landowners. Reynolds said he hopes 16 km will go in next year and that will set the stage for more to follow. “There is a place for shelter belts,” he said. “On the large scale farm today there is a mentality that we don’t need it — yet.”

CWB predicts large crop in most areas Production estimates show 20 million tonnes of wheat BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Western Canadian farmers who are already enjoying near-record prices for cereal grains are also on track to produce one of their biggest crops in years. Bruce Burnett, a weather and crop specialist with CWB, said last week that 2012 production of wheat, durum and barley in western Canada is likely to surpass levels in 2010 and 2011. With the exception of dry areas in southeastern Manitoba and B.C.’s Peace River region, most prairie farmers are benefitting from good growing conditions and ample mois-

Lightweight flyer can give farmers a lift Eagle-eye photos | New spin on precision agriculture gives agronomists an alternative to satellite imaging BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

WOODSTOCK, Ont. — Satellite imaging is an important tool for agronomists, but sometimes the clouds get in the way. “Satellites fly over five to 10 days. You get clouds sometimes. Then five to 10 days to get results,” said Felix Weber of Palmerston, Ont., who advises farmers on managing their land and crops. “Meanwhile, your crop has been dealing with problems you could have been working on.” Weber, who recently attended Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show in Woodstock, started thinking about ways to get those images without using a satellite or a light plane. “Drones,” he said. “I looked at quite a few of them.” One of the planes Weber looked at was Swinglet, built by SenseFly of Switzerland, where he was born and raised. The company builds the equipment and software that allows images made by the flying camera to be geo-referenced. Tying the images to exact land locations gives them value for farmers because they can be layered with other maps to create precision agriculture prescription maps or locate trouble spots in fields that need scouting to establish nutrient deficiencies or pest problems. The 500 gram flying camera is made of Styrofoam with a hardened outer shell. With a wing span of 80 centimetres, the rechargeable, swappable battery-powered flying wing relies on a rear-facing prop to get it airborne. “Its light weight means that it can land on its own without damage,” said Weber. Flight planning takes little time or training. The operator places a rectangle on a digital satellite map and a flight plan is automatically created. If no geo-referenced maps are available, the software can accept waypoints to be placed over the map. The unit takes wind into account and operates in light wind up to 25 km/h. It creates images that overlap and


are digitally tagged as to their location with six to 10 cm accuracy. Standing in a field in Ontario’s Oxford County, Weber gave the plane a quick shake and its gyroscope, recognizing the instruction, initiated the take-off sequence and the motor spun to life. With a light push the flying camera left Weber’s hands and rose to 125 metres at a rate of about three metres per second. The Swinglet can work as high as 3,000 metres, but that puts the machine potentially in the path of light planes and should be discussed with Transport Canada. The higher the unit flies, the greater the distance it can scan. It can create images over 10 sq. kilometres in half an hour, but the area is reduced at lower altitudes. However, lower altitude flights increase the resolution and detail in the final image. The Singlet’s 2.4 GHz communication system will talk to the ground station, maintaining its geo-referencing functions for up 1.3 km. It will continue to shoot if it gets out of range, but it will lose its GPS locations on the images. The plane will return and land within 20 metres of its take-off site once the camera has completed its mission or there are errors. G l u e c a n u s e d t o ma k e m o s t

repairs, although Weber said they don’t happen often. “They have such low mass that even hard landings don’t hurt them,” he said after retrieving his Swinglet from the edge of a corn field. A digital fence ensures that the plane will automatically return to is launch area no matter what problems are encountered. A radio controller comes with the plane for manual flight control, but Weber said it isn’t necessary and is provided only to meet international regulatory requirements for autonomous aircraft. The ground software can be placed on a tablet or laptop computer and provide a visual monitor of the imaging process. Images are stored on an SD card and downloaded from the card to a computer when the unit lands. The software then knits the images together to create a continuous map that is fully geo-referenced. It can also make 2D and 3D terrain profile maps, which are useful in precision farming field analysis and variable rate crop and nutrient planning or for planning an EC mapping of potentially saline soils. “It’s a tool,” he said. “I see it as something that farmers can make use of.” The autonomous flying cameras cost about $14,000 and aren’t for hobbyists, but Weber said the investment pays off rapidly when used to provide immediate insight into crop conditions. The units are also used by engineers and others who rely on precisely located aerial photos. For more information, contact Weber at 519-343-5454 or email him at

New concept tackles below-door gaps Snirt Stopper | Device designed to keep mice and weather out of the shop BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

FARGO, N.D. — In years when the bins are full, farmers sometimes temporarily store grain in quonsets and machine sheds. But unless the bottom of the door has a perfect fit with the concrete, it leaves a crack for rodents to get in. On the Prairies, a door that fits perfectly one month might have a twoinch gap next month because of shifting caused by weather and other factors. There are many types of rubber gaskets that fasten to the bottom of doors, but they don’t compensate enough to make up for the shifting floor. Fargo inventor Montie Beyer thinks he has found a better way to keep rodents, snow, dirt, cold air and other unwanted elements from sneaking through the cracks. The Snirt Stopper seals domestic garage door bottom gaps up to two inches. The mid-size Snirt Stopper seals gaps up to four inches and the sixinch Snirt Stopper seals large industrial doors up to six inches. It is designed for overhead and sliding doors, and has been installed on semi trailers with roll-up doors. Snirt Stopper consists of a flexible foam cylinder wrapped in an 18-ounce, double-weighted, rubberbased tarp material. The device is held together by polyurethane thread, which Beyer likens to wire, to prevent rodents from chewing it. To install, Snirt Stopper’s tarp has two tabs, one of which is screwed to the inside of the door with self-tapping screws. This leaves the foam cylinder to hang below the gap, but not slide under the door. The other tab is not attached, so it floats in under the bottom edge when the door is closed. This locks the cylinder into place because it’s locked in at spots where the door touches the concrete. “We do not close the door on the foam,” said Beyer, adding that the foam cylinder always stays inside the door. When the door is closed, the Snirt Stopper is inside the building, resting on the concrete floor. “The material is the same as we see on trucks. It lasts up to 20 years out in the elements, so it should last a lot longer inside the shop. “We’ve had our first Snirt Stoppers out for three years, and so far there have been no reports of mice chewing the tarp.” Beyer said he built the first prototype for his garage door because he was fed up with adjusting it. Every device he found on the market was installed so the door closed on it. “There was a lot of trial and error and a lot of stuff went in the garbage before I came up with something that works. “One of the main benefits of a hanging stopper is that it’s flexible enough that it doesn’t freeze to the floor and rip when you open the door.” The Snirt Stopper for domestic garage doors has a diameter of 1.25 inches and sells for $6.50 per linear

foot. The four-inch diameter device has an solid inner foam core wrapped in a softer foam, and sells for $8 per linear foot. The six-inch diameter device also has two foam layers and sells for $10 per linear foot. For more information, contact Montie Beyer at 701-238-8567 or visit

Large aluminum boom light, accurate, smooth Flexible design reduces bounce | The 132 foot span is made from one piece of extruded aluminum, allowing it to bend without cracking BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

FARGO, N.D. — The new 132 foot aluminum spray boom from Hagie was one of the biggest attractions at this year’s Big Iron Show in Fargo. Farmers who drove the early production model STS16 on the demonstration field said it was smooth with little boom bounce.

Hagie service rep Nick Bredeson explains that the 132 foot aluminum boom consists of sections of extruded aluminum that have a square front edge but a round back edge, giving it the ability to flex without cracking. | RON LYSENG PHOTOS

Hagie service rep Nick Bredeson said boom bounce is not the issue one would expect, considering the giant 132 foot span. He attributes this to the relatively light weight of the aluminum boom. Until this fall, the biggest boom from Hagie was 120 feet. It had been a steel boom until this year, when the company changed the design and began fabricating it of aluminum.

“When the 120 foot went from steel to aluminum, it shed 225 pounds,” said Bredeson. “That may not sound like much of a weight loss, but it’s a matter of leverage. When the weight extends all the way out to 60 feet in both directions from the centre of the chassis, boom control becomes an issue. A lighter boom means less bounce and better spray accuracy. Plus we get a better

Although the high degree of triangulation would indicate this should be a structurally rigid boom, Bredeson says there is actually a great amount of flexibility. This is largely due to the extruded aluminum tubes used in the boom.

“WITH OUR PREVIOUS FLEX-HEAD we would try to maintain 100% engine load, but we were always down in the 50%, 60%, 70% range. Now with the FD70 we’re not only able to attain 100%, we are also cutting 3 to 4 MPH (4.8 to 6.4 km/h) faster, and 4' (1.2 m) wider with each pass.”

balanced machine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 90 foot steel boom gives us perfect 50-50 front to rear weight balance. The 120 foot steel boom made the front just a little too heavy. When the 120 foot lost that 225 lb. going to aluminum, it went back to perfect weight balance like the 90 foot steel boom.â&#x20AC;? Bredeson said Hagie never tried to build a 132 foot steel boom, but making the 132 out of aluminum shaves at least 500 lb. off the front of the machine, compared to what it would have weighed if made of steel. Aluminum doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bend easily. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s notorious for cracking, which is why other aluminum booms on the market are designed to be structurally rigid. If they flex, they break. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But this new boom bends without breaking. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to do with aluminum. We use extruded aluminum and a very unique design in the casting process,â&#x20AC;? Bredeson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the outside, the lead edge looks like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of a square box tube. But the tail edge looks like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of a round cylindrical tube. Look closely and you see there are no welds along the length of the tube. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all extruded in a single piece of aluminum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cylinder and the square are merged together in the casting process. Then, channels are cut into the inner wall to create even greater strength because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more surface area.â&#x20AC;? The new mounting system eliminates the complex parallel linkage and instead uses a simple swinging pendulum design with two pivot points. The pendulum rocks left and right to compensate for the vertical movement as the boom moves up and down with the roll of the land, but it remains parallel with the ground. The 132 foot boom is available only on the STS16. Except for the new boom option, this sprayer remains basically unchanged, with a 1,600 gallon tank and 365 horsepower engine. Bredeson said the front boom design with the engine at the back and the tank in the middle offers farmers the kind of weight balance that keeps the sprayer moving instead of sinking. Weight distribution remains the same loaded or light. In terms of compaction, the loaded STS16 puts 34.9 p.s.i. on the ground, compared to competitorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 1,200 and 1,300 gallon sprayers that put 37.3 to 44.5 p.s.i. on the ground.

FAR LEFT: They look like hockey pucks, but in reality they are tasked with keeping the big boom running perpendicular to the chassis of the STS16.

while delivering a clean sample. I made it a rule not to use books for my columns but rely on my memory, so my writing became more personal. I relied a lot on the information I gleaned from the operators I talked to, clinics and other sources. It seemed as if everybody could relate to that and readers wrote me a lot of letters about their combines. There were also reader questions about tractors and hydraulics, about what to do about wheel hop and why bearings fail. I have a few parting thoughts that may help some of you keep a bit more of your money: • On your powered machinery, change the oil in the engine just before you store it for the winter. Run it for about five minutes. There is usually some moisture in the engine and that, mixed with the sulphur in the oil, makes sulphuric acid. That is not good for the engine. A fresh coating of oil cures that. • Wash your combine and farm equipment, but without the pressure washer, except for areas where you can’t get built-up material off. The reason is that a pressure washer will push water past the bearing seals and gaskets and into other places where you don’t want it. The machine will be shiny for now and need repairs later. • If your fuel is more than three months old, change it or use diesel fuel conditioner. It will cut down on your horsepower smoking and rough running complaints. • If the antifreeze has been in a machine for two years, change it. Some of the additives in the antifreeze will only last two years, especially the lubricant that maintains the pump. • Change the oil. If not for your valve guides and bearings, do it for that turbo spinning at 30,000 r.p.m. • When you start into a new crop, put everything into the tank and work backward from there to set the machine. You might not need a bigger combine, just one that is properly set. • Look for wear in the combine. Its surfaces are critical to threshing properly and if something isn’t working as designed, it will hurt capacity or do a poor job of threshing. Combines have a lot of wear parts. • Don’t fear the manual. The folks who built your machine are pretty smart and there is a lot of good information in there. Last year, I rode in some combines that use GPS guidance. It made me realize more than ever that I just wasn’t keeping up with technology and its trends. Besides, my health was hindering me more than I expected. I feel a little like the cow watching a milk truck go by. On the truck she reads Homogenized, Pasteurized, Vitamins X and Y added. She turns to her sister beside her and says, “Sort of makes you feel inadequate doesn’t it?” So I must say goodbye. Thanks for the memories.

Animal transport still imperfect Certification program now online | Multi-species training program may help address problems BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

TO RO N TO — Mo s t a n i ma l s loaded onto trucks handle the trip well, but animal welfare researcher Antoni Dalmau has seen plenty of room for improvement. He has witnessed cattle, hogs and poultry arriving at slaughterhouses in distress through his work at the Institute for Food and Agricultural Research and Technology in Spain. These problems could be corrected with better management and understanding of animal behaviour, he added. “The first measure of animal welfare is mortality. How many animals are arriving dead to our facilities?” Dalmau said at a symposium on animal welfare organized by the Canadian Meat Council in Toronto Oct. 11-12. His research has found less than .01 percent of cattle arrive dead, but

the Going Beyonhdool! Grazing Sc

sheep and pigs have slightly higher mortality levels. Low densities or very high densities can kill. Animals with plenty of room can be knocked around and hurt, but they are uncomfortable if crowded too tightly. Cattle need enough space so they can shift their bodies according to the movement of the truck. An animal that goes down takes space from the others and they can pile up on each other. Sheep behave differently. They crowd each other when stressed and can suffocate. They may also asphyxiate if they panic during unloading. Pigs and broiler chickens are at the greatest risk because they can suffer more readily from stress, heat and cold. Also, many pigs have had little exercise during their lives in the barns. Muscles produce lactic acid when stressed by exercise during

transit, and could cause a heart attack. Processors want animals to fast before slaughter so guts are empty of manure. Dalmau recommended removing feed for at least four hours and no more than eight hours before loading. Pigs become sick if the fast is too short and they develop meat quality problems. They may become aggressive if they go without feed for too long, resulting in meat quality problems and weight loss because the animals are using their own protein for maintenance. Processing plant staff must check the state of animals when they are being unloaded. They should not be panting, shivering or too tired to walk or lame. Horses should not be too sweaty. Animals that are clearly suffering need to be euthanized as soon as they get off the truck. These requirements are part of the

Canadian Livestock Transport certification program, but with more truckers coming from a non-farm background, they may not recognize some of the signs of distress, said program manager Geraldine Auston. The program recently went national and will soon be available online. It is a multi-species training program for drivers, farmers, ranchers, handlers and dispatchers. It is recognized in Canada and the United States as a credible certification program for the transport of animals. More than 1,750 people have been certified since it started in 2007. “Transportation is likely the most visible part of animal agriculture, and we have to be aware that people don’t always understand when they see a tractor trailer going down the road,” Auston said.

WINNIPEG (Reuters) — Two Canadian pork processors are among those expressing interest in Canada’s second-biggest hog producer, Big Sky Farms. Big Sky is looking for new ownership after soaring feed costs left it unable to pay its bills. The company, which produces one million pigs per year and is based near Humboldt, Sask., entered receivership in early September. Manitoba-based hog producer Puratone Corp. is also for sale after entering court protection from creditors last month. Maple Leaf Foods and Quebec Olymel are sizing up Big Sky, said Kevin Brennan, senior vice-president at Ernst & Young, the receiver for Big Sky. Big Sky supplies both companies’ hog plants. Some packers outside Canada are also interested, he said. “There’s a great deal of interest in terms of buying Big Sky,” said Brennan. The company is for sale as a whole and not in pieces, he added. “They take a long-term view of the industry itself, and if there’s a concentration of producers going out of business, it provides opportunity for others to grow.” Maple Leaf spokesperson Dave Bauer said it’s premature to comment on specific opportunities the company may have. “We are evaluating several options that would secure our longer-term hog supply,” he said. An Olymel spokesperson could not be immediately reached. Ernst & Young will ask a court this week to approve a sales process for Big Sky. Saskatchewan agriculture minister Lyle Stewart said Big Sky should be an attractive acquisition for major operators in Canada looking to expand. “I would expect it to be sold off more or less in one piece. It’s too valuable an asset” to shut down, he said. Big Sky owes $69 million to four secured creditors: Bank of Nova Scotia $26 million, Bank of Montreal $16.7 million, National Bank of Canada $16.2 million and Farm Credit Canada $9.8 million.

TORONTO — Jennifer Woods, a livestock handling consultant from Alberta, trains and audits people who handle livestock during transport and assesses animal welfare. Transportation was added to the animal welfare audit in the United States after an undercover video from Westland-Hallmark in California showed downer cattle being abused. Following that case, the American Meat Institute transport audit became the most recognized form of certification. “We have to make sure the animals we ship are fit to transport. These videos that we see all trace back to animals that should never have been put on the trailer,” Woods said at a Canadian Meat Council meeting last week. Audits should be carried out during loading and unloading, but that is difficult because animals may be moving great distances. Auditors conducting a transportation assessment should include only the immediate loading and unloading areas and what they see. Auditors will look for specific points, said Wood. First, they look at how well the plant is prepared to receive animals. Staff should be there to accept them and there should be a written animal welfare policy on hand. Auditors will assess the amount of time between the arrival of the truck and the time offloading begins. The plant receives full points if livestock are unloaded within 60 minutes, while deductions start the longer they wait. The plant needs an emergency plan for animals in transit and a

policy for dealing with downers and tools to handle them. Euthanasia tools must be readily available and properly maintained so a downer can be killed before it has to be moved further. Gates in unloading areas should swing freely and close securely. A bungee cord or twine does not properly secure a door. Flooring should be non-slip and ramps need to be in good repair. Auditors will note if animals slip or fall. Lighting should be like a bright, overcast day because flashes of light or dark areas distract animals. Loading density is assessed only if there is a problem. Incompatible animals should be segregated. Electrical prod use is discouraged, and almost all plants do not allow them. However, staff may use paddles or other tools that cannot be turned into a weapons. The cause needs to be documented if animals arrive dead. Wilful acts of abuse are not tolerated and the facility automatically fails the audit. These include driving animals on top of each other, dragging a live animal, stepping or walking on the backs of live animals, slamming gates or doors on animals, applying electrical prods to sensitive areas, striking, poking or beating animals and driving live animals without adequate unloading facilities. Producers and auctions also need to be educated to make sure they understand if an animal is fit to travel. On the farm, loading ramps and alleys should be in good repair. The ramp should have cleats, which need to be replaced if they come off.

There should be no gaps or holes or sharp or protruding objects. Nonslip flooring is recommended. Gates must open and close securely.

The trailer must be in good repair and should be lined up properly with the loading chute. Bedding, such as straw or shavings,

should be provided if recommended for certain species. For more information, visit www.

Canadian producers strong in global beef market Trade expanding | Prices favourable as beef consumption grows, says analyst BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Beef has a future as prices improve, and developing markets are poised to import more. Global meat prices are increasing even when inflation is taken into account for the last 10 years, says the head of a European food research firm. “A real price increase for beef has been pretty substantial, but the problem is for the consumer it becomes more expensive,” Richard Brown of the GIRA meat group said at the recent Canada Beef Inc. forum in Calgary. He said more trade is expected to offer more beef, pork and poultry to a world in which incomes are improving and meat consumption is going up. Producers are improving their pastures and adopting better feeding and health programs, but other factors such as weather and an uncertain economy can throw off projections, he added. Beef consumption is improving while global supplies have dropped. Brown said there was a 500,000 tonne drop in beef production from last year and probably another 300,000 decline will be noted this year. There are fewer cattle worldwide, with the greatest drop in the United States, the European Union and the Middle East. He said there are few places in the world where more beef could be produced. Canada, the U.S. and South America could produce more cattle, but growth will be relatively modest. Brown said trade patterns show the world’s largest exporters are Austra-

With a limited global supply, Canadian beef producers may find opportunities in growing export markets like China and India, said Richard Brown of the GIRA meat group. | FILE PHOTO lia, the United States, Brazil, India and Canada, although the largest exporters are not necessarily the largest producers. Canadian production inventories represent two percent of the world’s production. Canadian domestic consumption hovers around a million tonnes per year, and the rest is exported. Brown said consumption in the U.S is also flat, but its export programs have surpassed the previous record set in 2003. The country exported 1.26 million tonnes last year, with Japan and Canada the favoured destinations. There are some new opportunities,

but different products are desired for areas such as North Africa and the Middle East. These regions tend to buy low value meat such as buffalo from India, but they will buy higher priced cuts from other places. Brown said the largest importers are the U.S., Middle East-North Africa, Russia and Japan. Analysts such as GIRA are projecting consumption growth in China, Middle East-North Africa, the U.S., Mexico and India. The EU has emerged as a significant net importer of beef since 2008. This could be an interesting market for Canada, but past opportunities

have been dashed because meeting the EU requirements for hormone free and other specifications were difficult to meet. “The economy has been hideous and beef demand has been shaky,” Brown said. Eu ro p e o n c e i m p o r t e d l a r g e amounts of cheap beef from Brazil, but the trade stopped when the South American country did not comply with individual traceability requirements and guarantee of disease control. The European Commission said Brazilian beef is not allowed into Europe until this is improved.

“For North America, the people who will really benefit from trading into these interesting import markets are the ones who listen to exactly what their customers want,” he said. Export reliant countries such Uruguay, Denmark and New Zealand listen carefully to their customers and give them what they want. If it means slowing down production lines to supply them, they do it. Brown said Canadians need to be patient and wait for the euro to recover because there are opportunities there. “I never dreamt that the EU would be a net importer of beef,” he said.


Reduction of deadly E. coli starts with on-farm management ANIMAL HEALTH



he bacterium E. coli O157:H7 has once again made headlines in Canada, as multiple people have become infected and have been sickened following presumed contact with contaminated beef. As a normal resident of cattle feces, E. coli bacteria can contaminate meat products at the time of processing. Removal of the hide and guts are the most common ways bacteria are transferred to meat. Illness in people ranges from mild, flu-like symptoms to bloody diar-

rhea, kidney failure and even death. Reports of food-borne illness, such as those caused by E. coli O157:H7, often go underreported because typically, only the most severely affected people seek medical care. Each year in Canada, an estimated 11 million people contract a foodborne illness, including those caused by this E. coli. Proper cooking kills the bacteria and eliminates the risk of infection. Despite this relatively simple intervention, food poisoning still occurs all too often. It behooves the cattle industry to control these bacteria prior to meat entering the retail market. Cattle contract the bacteria primarily through infected water and feed. Since they carry the bacteria without illness, there is no way to identify its presence without testing. It seems as though few cattle are responsible for the majority of environmental contamination.

One study found that 10 percent of cattle in a feedlot contributed more than 95 percent of the total amount of bacteria in the group. Lately, much attention has focused on preventing or reducing infection rates at the farm and feedlot level. Provide clean water troughs, and feed off the ground or in bunkers. Avoiding excessively muddy pens, providing bedding and managing manure all contribute to reducing carcass fecal and mud tags. Feces and mud on the hide can be a major source of infection during skinning. Debris on the brisket hair is the most problematic as this is typically where the first cut into the hide is made during the skinning process. Wildlife such as deer and rats can also carry these bacteria and can spread it to cattle through feed contamination. A novel control choice is vaccination. Vaccinating for the sole purpose of achieving food safety is a relatively

new approach. Two licensed vaccines are available in Canada. There is good scientific evidence to show that two doses of the vaccine are capable of significantly reducing the amount of this bacteria shed by live cattle. Just as science supports pre-conditioning (weaning, vaccination, and deworming) prior to shipping calves, the economic benefits of E. coli vaccines to cow-calf producers may not be realized unless those calves are bought at a premium. Widespread vaccination against E. coli could reduce the number of meat recalls, human illness and processing plant closures; but for producers, such a program would require direct economic incentives. Enhanced consumer confidence would have trickle-down effects to the whole industry. Another perhaps less obvious benefit to vaccinating feedlot cattle is a reduction in the amount of bacteria in the manure. This reduces the

potential that water and other nonmeat products may be inadvertently contaminated by feedlot runoff. Contaminated vegetables and fruit are the second most common source of infection in people, following meat. The hygiene interventions designed to control all bacteria in processing plants are effective in controlling this special strain. Interventions to reduce E. coli will also decrease contamination with the other important food-borne bacteria such as listeria and salmonella. Certainly, processing plants have in important role to play in reducing meat contamination. H o w e v e r, b y d e c r e a s i n g t h e amount of dangerous bacteria entering the processing system, internal controls can be more effective.

Giving a nod to the real homecoming king COWBOY LOGIC


Father’s sacrifices paved the way for family’s first university graduate


ou probably wouldn’t guess it if you saw me on the ranch working cattle with manure on my jeans or stuck under a hay baler scraping bloody knuckles to change a few pick-up teeth, but I was a king once. No, I don’t have blood in my veins from any British royalty, even though Taylor is an English name. And although three-quarters of my heritage is Norwegian, I can lay no claim of relation to King Olav, or Harald, or Haakon. My Norwegian ancestors probably wouldn’t have come to America if they were royal. They came because they were dirt poor and looking for a better life. I was no European king. Heck, I’m not even a burger king. No, I was the king of the bison. Not the American bison, also known as the buffalo, shaggy headed herbivore of the great plains. I was king of the NDSU Bison, the students and faculty of North Dakota State University, land grant university of our beloved North Dakota. This was 21 years ago, my senior year of college, as I aspired to fetch degrees in agricultural economics and mass communications in a reasonable time while working a job, applying for scholarships and signing the dotted line on the student loan papers. I was the first generation in my family to have such a lavish opportunity, to be able to go to college and graduate with degrees of higher education. Dad left school after the 10th grade to go to work for area ranchers and help support his widowed mother and siblings. Mom graduated from high school in 1950, but being a first generation American, child of the Depression, she never even thought of college as a possibility. But we make progress here on the great plains of North Dakota, and one generation later, there I am at NDSU, going to class, making good grades, having more fun than a guy ought to, and winding up on the homecoming court of possible kings and queens. We had interviews to get on the court, and then the students voted as to who their king would be. So, it wasn’t a traditional monarchy or lineage that got me the crown. It was the democratic process of voting. That’s a good thing since I was no multigeneration legacy on the campus. So it all came together: the cowboy/ cowgirl voting bloc, the ag school, a few honour society friends, and others. There I was —king. Tonight I go back to NDSU’s homecoming to relive some of the glory days, and wonder if anyone really bothered to remember when the

cowboy was king. What I remember most about that senior year was not the crowning, the parade, my reign over the festivities or the win over the South Dakota Coyotes. What I remember most vividly from that year was graduation day, when my father, who never came to homecoming, never came to any other college event, came to my college graduation. This rancher, who didn’t drive four hours away from the ranch for much of anything, came to commencement, and as I walked by him in my cap and gown, I looked up in the bleachers and saw that stoic cowboy with a 10th grade education with tears running down his cheek. Surely he figured that our family had made it. He had a son graduating from our public land grant university. Maybe I was the king who had won the crown, but Dad, I think, was the real king that day because he got to see the results of his sacrifice to raise us and help us as best he could, so we could get an education more valuable than any crown. He made a fine king. Ryan Taylor is a rancher, writer and senator in the state legislature from Towner, North Dakota.

New GM production method may encourage new uses BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

New technology is being used to create genetically modified livestock for medical research, but a University of Minnesota researcher wielding the genetic “scissors” is also eyeing food animal production. Scott Fahrenkrug is the lead author of a recently published paper that describes how a technique using licensed technology called TALENs allows for cheaper and faster alteration of an animal’s genetic material. Fahrenkrug is also chief executive officer of Recombinetics, which was created to commercialize technologies from the U of M. The university has the rights to the technology for biomedical and agricultural applications for swine, cattle and sheep. He said the company wants to sell these animals first into the biomedical market, which already exists, and eventually to genetics companies. The technology could be used to produce disease-resistant animals,

improve feed conversion efficiencies and address animal welfare concerns such as dehorning, he said. “The potential impact on the ag side, I think, is much bigger,” he said, although the company hasn’t yet presented a product to regulators. Previous attempts to bring a GM animal into the food market, such as the Canadian-made Enviropig or salmon, have been met with regulatory hangups and opposition from a strong anti-GM lobby. The breeding program for the Enviropig was shut down earlier this year. It was an animal genetically modified at the University of Guelph to better digest phosphorus. “We’re certainly aware of all of that and I’ve been involved with the field for a long time, so we’re not naive about the barriers to either public acceptance or to regulatory approval, but we do emphasize that this really is qualitatively different,” said Fahrenkrug. “This is not a typical GM animal.” The report documents how researchers have employed the tech-

nology to make genetic modifications in the Ossabaw miniature pig, which will be used as models to study human diseases. The animals will be used to study cardiovascular disease. “We’re not adding genes in this case. We’re not adding any recombinant DNA or anything like that,” said Fahrenkrug. “We’re treating embryos or we’re treating cells with something that’s essentially a pair of molecular scissors.” Recombinant DNA results from laboratory work constructing genetic material that wouldn’t otherwise be found. “We call it editing. We don’t like to call it genetic modification.… It’s simply an accelerated breeding technique,” said Fahrenkrug. “We’re not interested at this point in creating versions of genes that people don’t already eat. We apply new technology to accelerate breeding programs.” He said the technology could be used to cross livestock to promote or discourage a certain trait.

20 percent stake in Three Farmers, a camelina oil producing company. The idea for producing camelina culinary oil in Saskatchewan began when Colin Rosengren was sitting in a meeting about biofuel put on by Ag-West Bio. Rosengren said they were discussing genetically modifying camelina so it could be a better industrial oil platform, but when they started talking about the beneficial aspects of the ancient oilseed, he wondered why they didn’t just use the plant as it is. The project Rosengren was considering was bigger than he wanted to manage by himself, so he recruited two neighbouring farmers, Ron Emde and Dan Vandenhurk, to help. “I guess they just happened to be in the curling rink complaining at the same time,” Rosengren said. “We have a good working relationship — we’ve all farmed here for multi-generations, so they were logical people to approach.” In 2009, the company hired two of Vandenhurk’s daughters: Natasha, an economics graduate from the University of Saskatchewan, and Elysia, a Red Seal chef. “When the girls got on board, that’s really when the business began to take off in terms of sales and marketing,” Rosengren said. “The three of us are growers and we figured out the agronomy, how to grow a good quality product, manage fertility, and learn how to do many of the things that there wasn’t a lot of knowledge available for this area. But we didn’t have the knowledge or skill set for marketing the product.” Soon after Natasha joined the company she started working on its brand, packaging and marketing. She said the company got what it was looking for from the CBC television show: national exposure for its product and a deal with Dickinson, who has the knowledge and contacts that will help the company expand. “Having a mentor like Arlene is invaluable,” Natasha said. “ Camelina oil is high in omega 3 and omega 6 polyunsaturates and has a smoke point of 475 F, which is high compared to other cold-pressed non-processed oils, except coconut oil. The company is marketing the oil as a cooking, dressing and baking oil. For more information, go to www.

Prairie land prices surge in 2012

Expectations of a weak earnings season and worries about Spain’s debt crisis pressure markets lower, but U.S. consumer confidence is rising. For the week, the TSX fell 1.75 percent, the Dow was down 2.1 percent, the S&P 500 fell 2.2 percent and the Nasdaq was down 2.9 percent.

Largest semi-annual increase on record | Rising prices entice landowners to list their properties

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





Farmers and investors who own Canadian farmland continued to see a solid return on their investments during the first half of 2012, according to Farm Credit Canada’s semiannual report. In its most recent farmland valuations report published Oct. 9, FCC said the average value of a quarter section of farmland in Canada rose 8.6 percent during the first half of the year. The largest provincial increase was recorded in Ontario, where average values rose 16.3 percent between Jan. 1 and July 1. Fa r m l a n d i n M a n i t o b a a n d Saskatchewan registered the second and third largest gains, with average values rising by 10.3 percent and 9.1 percent, respectively, during the first half of the year. Prices in Alberta rose 5.7 percent. Cathy Gale, an FCC farmland valuations officer, said a number of factors are influencing farmland values on the Prairies. They include strong commodity prices, low interest rates and growing demand among farmers who are eager to expand their holdings. Oil and gas activity is also affecting land values in some parts of the Prairies. Gale said an increasing number of renters are approaching their landlords and attempting to buy land before it is offered to other potential buyers. Institutional investors seeking a safe place to invest money are also affecting prices. Unlike other investments, the value of Canadian farmland has risen steadily in recent years. The valuation increase announced last week is the largest semi-annual increase that FCC has recorded since it began reporting on Canadian farmland values in the mid-1980s. Average farmland values in Canada


5.7% 9.1% 10.3% IN ALBERTA



have risen nearly 23 percent in the 18 month period ending June 30. By comparison, the TSX Composite Index fell by more than 12 percent during the same period. Gale said landowners who have owned properties for several years are watching land markets closely. Rising prices are enticing many landowners

to list their properties. For example, prices in Saskatchewan have risen nearly 20 percent over the past year. “Land values tend to follow what’s happening in agriculture more than anything,” Gale said. “Right now, it’s just a positive time in agriculture.”

FCC monitors the value of 245 baseline properties across Canada to determine farmland values. Each of those properties consists of 160 acres of bare, productive farmland. The value of each baseline property is determined by monitoring actual sales of comparable properties in the same region.


Manitoba biodiesel plant destroyed by fire after tanker explosion BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A fire has destroyed Manitoba’s largest biodiesel plant. The Oct. 1 blaze at the Speedway International facility in St. Boniface caused an estimated $15 million of damage. It was one of the largest fires that the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service has attended. It took 61 firefighters to control the blaze and 20 police cars to assist with traffic control. A spokesperson for the fire depart-

ment was unavailable for comment. According to newspaper reports, the fire became an inferno when a tanker full of fuel exploded, resulting in a fireball that shot almost one kilometre into the air. That prompted the fire department to establish a safety perimeter of one kilometre, evacuating 100 residences and businesses. Speedway was the location where the province of Manitoba announced its two percent biodiesel mandate on Nov. 2, 2009. The provincial mandate requires

about 20 million litres of biodiesel annually, which was the capacity of the Speedway plant before it burned to the ground. According to the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association, the province has two other biodiesel plants, which combined have the ability to produce eight million litres of the alternative fuel. Speedway issued a statement saying that it has complied with all safety standards and codes and is permitted to import and export fuel. “We have all required permits and licences and meet all codes set by Nat-

ural Resources Canada and Environment Canada,” said the biodiesel firm. The company said that it stores canola biodiesel at its plant but said that no rail cars containing biodiesel or methanol were affected by the fire. Speedway said its employees are going through a devastating time as the company attempts to rebuild the family business. “We are thankful that no one was hurt and thank everyone for listening to emergency services and staying clear of the area as firefighters fought the blaze.”

Supreme Court redefines eligibility for farm loss deductions MONEY IN YOUR POCKET


Changes in the tax act are beneficial but its application could be a long time coming


n an age when almost two-thirds of total income for Canadian farmers comes from off-farm sources, section 31 of the Income Tax Act has always presented a problem.

Section 31 limits deductible losses “where a taxpayer’s chief source of income for a taxation year is neither farming nor a combination of farming and some other source of income.” The problem with Section 31 arose in a 1978 Supreme Court Case (Moldowan vs. The Queen), which found that there were three classes of taxpayers involved in farming. The first class included those who derive the bulk of their income from farming and whose losses are not limited. In the second class are taxpayers who essentially carry on farming as a subordinate source of income to other work or in essence farming is a sideline activity. In this case, farm losses are limited. Falling into the third class are hobby farmers whose losses are not

deductible at all. This interpretation seemed to override the actual words of the Income Tax Act in most court cases. The Canada Revenue Agency generally took the 1978 precedent as a basis to apply the source of major income as the prime test for establishing limits to deductible farm losses. In 2006, the Federal Court of Appeal found a more generous interpretation of what could constitute “a combination of farming and some other source of income.” The problem with this more flexible interpretation according to the Supreme Court is that it’s not up to lower courts to overturn a Supreme Court finding — only the Supreme Court can do that. However, the Supreme Court in a

recent decision found that its 1978 decision was wrong and should be changed. The current court found that there are several relevant factors that would define a combination of farming and some other source of income. These are: • the capital invested in farming and the other source of income • the amount of money that comes from each source of income • the time spent on each source of income • the taxpayer’s ordinary mode of living • farming history • future intentions and expectations The court found that if the taxpayer places significant emphasis on both farming and non-farming sources of income, then there is no

reason that such a combination should not constitute a chief source of income. This would then avoid the loss deduction limitation of Section 31 of the Income Tax Act. Both farm and non-farm income must be significant endeavours of the taxpayer, but they don’t need to be connected, and farming doesn’t have to be the predominant source of income. Although the decision is a positive one for those involved in farming activities, it can take years for Supreme Court decisions to be fully applied by lower courts and the CRA.

Sask. website wins Tech Venture Challenge, business start-up cash Renterra Farmland’s website will allow interested renters to bid on available Saskatchewan farmland SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A concept for a website that links farmland owners with renters has been named winner of the University of Saskatchewan Tech Venture Challenge. Lyndon Lisitza, an alumnus of the university, created Renterra Farmland Sales and Rental Auction Inc., which, when operational, will allow land owners to register and post legal land descriptions. Farmers who want to rent land can log on to the site to see what is available and can then bid on it through a transparent auction. “Renterra is a web-based platform that makes it easier for farmland owners and renters to connect,” Lisitza said. To deal with problem renters and owners, Lisitza is installing a feedback category where owners and renters can rate each other. The Tech Venture Challenge award comes with $50,000 cash, a year of office space at Innovation Place, which is an on-campus research centre, and professional services valued at $6,000 from Deloitte.

One of the biggest challenges I face is getting enough capital to take this idea to market. LYNDON LISITZA RENTERRA FARMLAND SALES

Lisitza said the money will help develop his idea into a business venture. “One of the biggest challenges I face is getting enough capital to take this idea to market,” he said. “I just finished a masters in economics, and when you’re in that position with student loans and you come out and try to start a business, a lot of financial institutions don’t look at you favourably.” The Tech Venture Challenge gives University of Saskatchewan alumni, employees, researchers and students support in creating their own companies. It is sponsored by the U of S, Innovation Place, Deloitte, and the Royal Bank of Canada. Renterra plans to launch the business Nov. 14.

Ad blitz targets GM labelling California ballot proposal | Monsanto, DuPont lead â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;noâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; campaign

Centennial Column Celebrating 100 years of students at the College of Agriculture and Bioresources. The Centennial Column is a weekly feature highlighting the history and present successes of the college.

DNA Analysis Since the early days of the college the tools that we use to perform research and teaching in our laboratories have seen huge changes. Bunsen burners have gone. Glass test tubes have been replaced my disposable plastic tubes that contain microlitres rather than millilitres. Chemicals are now measured in micrograms rather than grams and concentrations can be measured in parts per million or parts per billion. One of the greatest changes has been in the area of DNA analysis. It was only in 1953 that Watson and Crick confirmed that DNA was the genetic material. In the early 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it became possible to isolate, multiply and sequence short sections of DNA. Since then techniques for working with DNA have evolved at an increasingly rapid pace and DNA analysis is now routine in many of our laboratories. In plant science, DNA analysis is now an essential component of breeding programs helping breeders to identify the genes carried by plants without the need for further screening in the field. Similarly, in animal science DNA analysis has led to improved breeding strategies. In both plant and animal science equipment for DNA analysis is a critical tool for studies in physiology, biochemistry and pathology. DNA analysis is also a routine tool for analyzing microbial populations and is particularly useful in studies such as food safety and water contamination. Similarly DNA analysis allows the microbial population of the digestive system of animals to be studied and determine how animal feeds may affect that population. Even in soil science studies DNA analysis can provide insights as to how agronomic practices and climate change affect the microbial population of the soil. Techniques for DNA analysis continue to advance at rates similar to the rate at which the IT industry evolves. Equipment purchased today will soon be eclipsed by newer models with greater capability. Such capabilities now require robots to be able to process the many samples that the equipment can process and also significant computer capacity to make sense of the data generated. While unthinkable a few years ago, obtaining the DNA the sequence of complex plants and animals in a few days at a relatively low cost is now within sight and will undoubtedly have even more significant impacts on research and teaching in the college.

CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An intense advertising blitz, funded by Monsanto and others, has boosted opposition to a California ballot proposal that would require U.S. food makers to disclose when their products contain genetically modified organisms. If California voters approve the measure in November, it would be the first time U.S. food makers would have to label products that contain GMOs, or ingredients whose DNA has been manipulated by scientists. For more than a week, the opposition group funded by Monsanto and PepsiCo Inc. has dominated television and radio air time with ads portraying the labelling proposal as an arbitrary set of new rules that will spawn frivolous lawsuits and boost food prices, positions disputed by supporters. Experts say the real risk is that food companies may be more likely to stop using GMOs than to label them. That could disrupt U.S. food production because ingredients like GM corn, soybeans and canola have for years been staples in virtually every type of packaged food, from soup and tofu to breakfast cereals and chips. Support for the GMO labelling proposal has plummeted to 48.3 percent from 66.9 percent two weeks ago,

When thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an initiative thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to affect an industry that can rally resources, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve usually been able to stop it. MICHAEL SHIRES PEPPERDINE UNIVERSITY

according to an online survey of likely California voters conducted by the California Business Roundtable and Pepperdine Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School of Public Policy. At the same time, the proportion of respondents likely to vote â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? on the measure, known as Proposition 37, jumped to 40.2 percent from 22.3 percent two weeks ago, according to the survey results released Oct. 11. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clearly the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;noâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; side has more money and the advertising is having an effect,â&#x20AC;? said Michael Shires, a Pepperdine professor who oversees the survey cited above. Funding for the effort to defeat the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right to Knowâ&#x20AC;? ballot initiative is led by chemical giants Monsanto and DuPont, whose businesses also are the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top sellers of genetically modified seeds.

Monsanto has contributed slightly more than $7 million US to fight the proposal, while DuPont has kicked in about $5 million. In all, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;No on 37â&#x20AC;? camp has raised a total of $34.6 million, according to filings with the California Secretary of State. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes on 37â&#x20AC;? supporters, led by the Organic Consumers Association and Joseph Mercola, a natural health information provider, have donated $5.5 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an initiative thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to affect an industry that can rally resources, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve usually been able to stop it,â&#x20AC;? said Shires. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It still could go either way.â&#x20AC;? If passed, California would join dozens of countries that already have some requirements for labelling of genetically engineered foods. Supporters of the ballot initiative, including food and environmental activists as well as organic growers, say consumers have the right to know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the food they eat. Industry says the products are safe, but there is a fiery debate raging around the science. Because foods made with GMOs are not labelled, it is impossible to trace any food allergies or other ill effects suffered by humans or animals, critics say.





Call for Canadian farmers coming from abroad Labour shortage | Firm’s farm work program puts Canadians in Australian fields for 10 weeks during harvest BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Derek Tufts had the choice of working outside in southwestern Manitoba this winter, or working outside in Australia. Tufts, 23, of Minto, Man., made the warm choice and will board a plane in a couple of weeks. “For the last few winters I’ve been working in the oil field and I thought I’d try somewhere different and a little bit warmer,” said Tufts, who grew up on a farm near Minto. Once he arrives in Australia, Tufts will work for a farmer in the state of Victoria, where he will operate a combine and perform other tasks to get grain off the field and into the bin. Much like Western Canada, growers in Australia are struggling to find farm hands during the harvest period because young people have left rural areas or may be working at high paying jobs in the country’s mining sector. To fill the labour void, an Australian firm called Dodgshun Medlin is reaching out to young men and women in Western Canada who have farm experience and want to work and travel in Australia. With the help of a Canadian woman from Clandeboye, Man., the company has developed a short stay, farm work program called Farmaroo. Since early September, Carling Henderson, who moved to Australia in 2010 after meeting an Australian lad in Manitoba, has held meetings in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, to recruit young, rural Canadians into the Farmaroo program. Farmaroo offers young Canadians the chance to work for six to 10 weeks at a farm in Australia, which provides the necessary cash to hang around a beach resort for a couple of months. The rate of pay isn’t equivalent to a job in Fort McMurray, Alta., but it is enough to fund a warm holiday. “Eighteen year olds, over there, start at $18.50 an hour for casual farm labour,” said Henderson, who lives with her fiancé on a farm in the state of Victoria. “Nineteen year olds get $19.60 and 20 year olds and plus, get $20.70 an hour.” Henderson, who used to work as an extension co-ordinator for Manitoba Agriculture in Killarney, joined Dodgshun Medlin shortly after she moved to Australia. The firm provides a wide range of services to farmers, including financial management, taxation and agronomy. It set up a division last year to recruit and place employees on farms. There are people willing to work on grain farms in Australia, Henderson said, but most people don’t have the necessary experience. “(Farmers) could train anybody to drive a tractor or a combine, but (they) don’t have the time to spend training … people that are just so green.” Instead of babysitting people who

Carling Henderson, who grew up in Clandeboye, Man., and now lives on a farm in Rupanyup, Australia, wants to recruit young Canadians to work on farms in Australia. Henderson works Dodgshun Medlin, which has started a program to recruit Canadians to work on Australian farms during the grain harvest. | CARLING HENDERSON PHOTO have never heard of a power take-off, Australian farmers, like Canadian producers, want to hire men and women who have operated a combine, tractor and a swather. Last year Henderson and Dodgshun Medlin brought over three young men from Minnedosa, Man., as part of a trial run for the Farmaroo program. The three worked on farms in the Mallee, an agricultural region in the states of Victoria and South Australia, located north of Melbourne. Typically, the grain harvest in the Mallee begins around mid-November and lasts six to eight weeks. Producers in the Mallee grow wheat, barley, vetch, oats and canola. Horticulture is also a major industry in the region. This fall, Henderson spoke at meetings across the Prairies and talked to students at Assiniboine Community College in Brandon, the University of Manitoba and high school students. Henderson didn’t quite reach her goal of signing up 30 people for Farmaroo, but she did recruit several young men and women from Manitoba and Saskatchewan. One impediment may have been the up front fee, as Dodgshun Medlin expects young Canadians to pay $2,500 to be part of the program. Henderson said the fee is necessary because the company has spent time and financial resources to ensure it is linking Canadians to jobs on reputable farms.

“That (cost) is the certainty (of ) having a job before you go … and they know they’re going to a good farm,” she said. “We set them up with bank accounts, pre-paid mobile phones, different things like that to get their foot in the door for Australia.” For Tufts, the $2,500 wasn’t an issue because he knows he’ll have a job doing familiar harvest work at a grain farm. “This is well planned out,” he said. “Some places (in Australia) you’re picking fruit and I wasn’t really looking for that.” Henderson hopes that her outreach work this fall, speaking to young western Canadians, will pay off next year as many people expressed interest in the opportunity. If it’s able to build up its job placement business over the next few years, Dodghun Medlin would like to offer its services to Canadian farmers, Henderson said. “We’re also looking at doing the reverse, where we bring Australians to Canada (to work on farms).” One thing Henderson did learn during her travels in Western Canada is that Australia appeals to all age groups, not just people in their 20s. A number of Canadians older than 50 told her they’d like to work on a farm in Australia. “They want to travel Australia, as well, and they want to take part in this program. Unfortunately, they can’t because the visa is only there for 18 to 30 year olds.”
