Exhibitors like Farmfair exposure Opportunity for breeders | Annual event draws international attention and promotes industry BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

EDMONTON — It’s a long way from Quesnel, B.C., to Edmonton, but for Rob Swann and his daughter, Erin Kishkan, it’s an important venue for purebred breeders. “It’s exposure to other breeders and cattle producers,” said Swann, who t r a v e l s t o C a n a d i a n We s t e r n Agribition in Regina and to shows across British Columbia to promote his Limousin cattle, but makes an effort to attend Farmfair International, a five-day cattle show in Edmonton. “It is the best way to get your name recognized, especially within the purebred industry,” said Kishkan. “Besides the ribbons and banners, we’ve made lifelong friends and had opportunities to show our genetics and sell to other breeders all over Canada and North America,” she said.

It’s all hands on deck for cattle exhibitors at Farmfair International. The decision to bring nine animals to Farmfair is not made lightly by exhibitors, but it is an important marketing tool.

“It takes a lot of manpower, a lot of time and a lot of supplies,” said Kishkan, but cattle sales are made at the events. In recent years their Pinnacle

View Limousin farm has sold embryos to China and semen to Australia. Farmfair staff has also made an effort to make exhibitors feel welcome. This year, the event has added slip proof mats between stalls to improve cattle footing and organizers have promoted a welcoming atmosphere with free morning coffee and hot chocolate and an exhibitor reception. For Layne Pickett of Ardrossan, just outside Edmonton, Farmfair is an international show close to home. “For us locally, it’s fairly important,” said Pickett, who brought six Speckle Park animals to show. “It’s costly, but it’s a valuable tool for promotion.” The relatively small number of cattle in the Speckle Park breed makes it difficult to find enough numbers to host a show.

Farmfair offers exposure Breeders brought 22 animals to Farmfair, enough for a small show and a display of the breed, he said. This year about 675 show cattle were brought to Edmonton for the event held Nov. 4 - 11, down slightly from last year. Show manager Dave Fiddler said while number of cattle are down, the number of exhibitors is up to 150 from 135. “We have more exhibitors showing fewer cattle. I don’t think the number of cattle is a measurement of success,” he said. With less farm help, it’s not always easy to find staff to come to the show. For the first time Farmfair has offered an event called Cattle Drive, where exhibitors can buy stall space for an animal without having to show it in the show ring. “We’re trying to create an environment where the different types of marketing are available.” Leonard Poholka of Breton West

Herefords said he could point to the Hereford Genes promotional event as the reason for keeping Hereford numbers high at Farmfair. “It’s what brought the population back up,” said Poholka, of Breton. About 90 Herefords were brought to the show. Holding Farmfair in conjunction with the Heritage Ranch Rodeo and the Canadian Finals Rodeo also helps bring traffic into the cattle barns, said Poholka. “I’m here because I’m trying to attract potential customers and let them know I have bulls for sale.” Russ Horvey of Big Deal Galloway in Delburne, Alta., said Farmfair is the only cattle show he attends. It’s a venue where he can scratch his showmanship itch. Farmfair is one of the few shows that holds a multibreed show for breeds like Galloway, which have too few cattle to host their own shows.

Prairie farmers show one good turn deserves another with hay campaign BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Prairie farmers who remember the generosity of eastern Canadian farmers who sent hay west during the 2002 drought to feed cattle see this as payback time. Hundreds of western farmers have pledged to send hay east to help eastern Canadian farmers feed their animals this winter after a 2012 drought sharply reduced feed there. Many Ontario farmers began to feed winter hay to their livestock in the summer because pastures were bare. Ontario Federation of Agriculture president Mark Wales says without help, many Ontario farmers will have to sell cattle. Last week, federal and Ontario governments promised $500,000 to cover the costs of feed moving from the Prairies as part of HayEast. The two levels of government also pledged to match donations up to a total of $2.5 million. It was a slow government response compared to a fast promise of transportation funds in 2002 but farm leaders welcomed the Nov. 3 announcement. For Wynyard, Sask., farmer and

Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan president Norm Hall, it is time for prairie farmers to repay a debt. Hay from his own farm will be heading east. He said the addition of government support for transporting the feed east will be an important incentive. “We have been pushing hard to get Saskatchewan farmers to contribute and now that money is there to help with transport, we will be pushing harder,” Hall said Nov. 8. In a news release about the campaign to pay for feed moving east, Alberta farm leader Lynn Jacobson, president of Wild Rose Agricultural Producers, noted support from corporations including Calgary-based Agrium and Regina-based crown corporation Farm Credit Canada. “We will continue to appeal to corporations, western Canadian farmers and ranchers and individual citizens for donations to help us access that additional matching funds from our government partners,” he said. Donations to HayEast 2012 can be made through ScotiaBank branches across Canada.

Producer reaction mixed to hog loan plan Weanlings exempt | Because weanlings are often exported, it could be considered trade distorting

• Pigs were the most valuable agricultural commodity in Manitoba from 1999 to 2007, followed by canola, wheat and beef cattle. However, record high crop prices for canola and wheat pushed them above pigs in 2008. • The pork industry injects about $1 billion into the economy annually, providing more than 13,000 direct and indirect jobs. • Manitoba is the largest pigproducing and exporting province, followed by Quebec and Ontario. Pig production is valued at more than $730 million. • Manitoba is the third-largest pork exporter, behind Quebec and Ontario. • There are slightly more than 800 pig farms, most run by family farms.


NIVERVILLE, Man. — A hog industry stabilization plan proposed for Manitoba has left producers feeling either abandoned or relieved. The difference in reaction depended on what they do in the industry. “It sounds like a stabilization thing, which makes sense if they can cover the fall and winter,” said farrow-tofinish producer Jerrold Siemens of Morris. “It helps bridge things, at least on a temporary basis.” However, the program offered nothing to weanling producer Matthew Eggenberger of Steinbach. “There is not very much done for us,” said Eggenberger, whose 300 sow farrowing barn is empty. “We always have to find our own way.” The Manitoba plan, which is still being formalized, will deduct money from hog producers when they sell market hogs to packers and then pay it back to them if they sell at prices calculated to be below the cost of production. Farmers will initially be paid out much more than they are contributing in levies, with the deficit covered by a provincial government-backed line of credit. Farmers will continue to pay into the program once profitability returns and the deficit will be paid off. Siemens said another loan won’t improve the industry’s long-term economic challenges, but it might allow farmers to weather the present short-term challenges until profitability returns. “It’s a creative way of accessing money on a short-term basis.” Weanling producers are excluded because the payouts are based on slaughter hog sales.



The Manitoba Pork Council’s stabilization plan will help “on a temporary basis,” says a producer. | FILE PHOTO


Manitoba Pork Council officials said that was partly the result of the program design, which relies on packer sales. However, it was also deliberate because weanlings are generally exported. The provincial government “wouldn’t even consider covering a hog that was being exported,” said council chair Karl Kynoch. Governments and industry insist

that programs to support hog farmers cannot be seen as trade-distorting, and there is no easy way to channel money to farmers who primarily export pigs to American buyers without creating a risk of U.S. trade action. Eggenberger said the program leaves weanling producers completely exposed, which is a harsh situation for a sector of the industry that has probably suffered more than any other. “We have taken a pretty big beating in the past,” he said. “Whenever prices (for market hogs) fall, many buyers push it all back to the weanling producer, and he gets almost nothing.” Eggenberger said he has fared better than other weanling producers

because he sold to a neighbouring farmer who treated him fairly. However, many southern Manitoba weanling producers went into the present slump already suffering because American buyers had reneged on contract sales . Eggenberger doesn’t plan to restock his barn until the situation improves, and right now that doesn’t look like any time soon. Siemens said the program might allow slaughter hog producers to limp through until next summer, if the program is structured right. “It’s always the details that make the difference in the end.” However, Eggenberger said weanling producers will continue to suffer, fail or quit.

• Canada produced two percent of the world’s pork in 2007, but Canadian pork accounted for 20 percent of world exports at 1.03 million tonnes. • Canada is the second-largest pork exporter after the United States, shipping pork worth $2.4 billion to 96 countries in 2007. • Canada is the world’s largest pig exporter, with sales of $700 million to the United States in 2007.

WORLD PORK FACTS • China produces and consumes more than 46 percent of the world’s pork. • The top seven pork producing nations are responsible for 90 percent of world pork production and exports. They are also responsible for 77 percent of pork imports. Source: Manitoba Pork Council


Loan hinges on levy to repay borrowed amount Credit without lender | The levy idea involves no federal money and so avoids potential trade disputes BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE, Man. — The Manitoba Pork Council has developed a plan it says will help preserve the province’s hog industry. About 175 producers gathered inside a Portage la Prairie theatre Nov. 7 as pork council chair Karl Kynoch explained the details of a stabilization program for Manitoba hog producers. The program is a line of credit producers can access via the pork council. However, if hog farmers want to sign up for the program they must pay a $5 dollar levy on every hog they sell. “This is a totally new program. We’re trying to do what we can for the producers. In reality, they don’t want another loan… but cash injections (from government) are not on the

table,” Kynoch said, during a break at the Portage meeting. “So we’re trying to offer them the access to some dollars to be able to pay the feed bills and to get through to the higher prices next summer.” Hog producers in Canada have been hemorrhaging money for months, as the drought in the U.S. Midwest this summer propelled feed corn prices to record highs. In September, Manitoba Pork esti-

mated that producers were losing $40 to $50 on every hog sold. Kynoch provided an example on how the program might work, in which production costs are $175 per hog and market returns are $145 per animal, based on cost and price averages. Under that scenario, a producer would receive a payment of $30 per hog, minus the $5 levy. So, if a farmer marketed 1,000 hogs, he would

receive a net payment of $25,000. Once markets improve and hog farmers are making profits, producers continue to pay the $5 levy on every marketed hog until they pay off the stabilization account. When the loan account reaches zero, the $5 levy is returned to the producer. “If you join the program, you would have to come to the pork council and sign the papers (saying) we can keep the levy,” Kynoch told the producers in Portage. “(But) you have to remember that the levy is refundable.” Andrew Dickson, Manitoba Pork general manager, said the program provides access to credit without going through financial institutions. Manitoba Pork staff and directors came up with the idea of a levy, partly because it avoids potential trade disputes.

“It’s not a subsidy,” Kynoch said. “The payment is a loan…. So this program is not countervailable. It’s green to trade.” The federal government is putting no direct money into the program, but if the Treasury Board supports the concept, it will guarantee the line of credit, which will probably be capped at $75 million. Ideally, Kynoch wants the program to be running by February. He added the program would be backdated to Sept. 1 or Oct. 1. That way, producers can get their hands on cash immediately, once it becomes available. “That’s very crucial because the industry is just out of cash right now. Sept. 1 is when the producers started into heavy losses and that’s what we need to cover,” he said. “The guys just need some dollars to continue on and get through to profit.”

Hog farmers consider suit against Puratone Farmers owed up to $150,000 | Maple Leaf Foods purchased Puratone but says it is not responsible for liabilities BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Manitoba farmers who sold grain to Puratone before the hog production company entered creditor protection in September are considering a lawsuit because they haven’t been paid for their grain. Maple Leaf Foods announced in late November that it would pay $42 million for Puratone of Niverville, Man., which produces 500,000 hogs annually. A few producers have suggested that Maple Leaf should compensate farmers who delivered grain to Puratone and never received payment. However, a Maple Leaf spokesperson said the company bought Puratone’s assets, which means it isn’t responsible for Puratone’s liabilities. According to Canadian regulations, a corporation that buys the shares of another company usually assumes the liabilities of the purchased company. However, Maple Leaf bought Puratone’s 50 hog barns, three feed mills and other assets, which means

They will have a hell of a time convincing farmers to deliver grain to their feed mills if they don’t treat the ones owed thousands of dollars equitably. JAMES BEZAN SELKIRK-INTERLAKE MP

it isn’t on the hook for Puratone’s substantial debts. A list of Puratone’s creditors, which is available online, shows the company owes $40.8 million to the Bank of Montreal, $40.2 million to Farm Credit Canada and $5 million to Manitoba Agricultural Services Corp. All three are secured creditors. FCC declined comment for this story because the Puratone case is still unresolved. Puratone owes an additional $32 million to scores of companies and individuals in Manitoba, including $122,000 to Manitoba Hydro and $142,000 to Landmark Feeds. Puratone owes $30,000 to $150,000

each to dozens of Manitoba farmers who delivered grain to the company this year. For instance, John Sigurdson of Riverton, Man., is out more than $60,000 after delivering grain to Puratone late this summer. “As it stands right now … we are looking for a lawyer that works in bankruptcy and insolvency,” Sigurdson said. “As soon as your grain got there (Puratone), it was made into feed and away it went…. It’s basically theft to me.” James Bezan, an MP who represents Selkirk-Interlake, said it was good news that Maple Leaf bought Puratone and planned to continue

operating the mills and barns in Manitoba. Nonetheless, he added, Maple Leaf should compensate affected farmers. “We are monitoring (this) quite closely and want to see these producers (have) their outstanding invoices settled up,” he said. “They will have a hell of a time convincing farmers to deliver grain to their feed mills if they don’t treat the ones owed thousands of dollars equitably.” Bezan said Maple Leaf shouldn’t be blamed for Puratone’s financial hole, but the new entity, however it’s structured, can’t ignore the needs of its suppliers. “It’s about being a responsible corporate citizen and working with the producers … to make sure they have a long-term supply coming to their facilities.” A monitor, Deloitte and Touche, is overseeing the Puratone creditor protection process. Farmers, including Sigurdson, are trying to get their s t atu s a s u n s e c u re d c re d i t o r s changed so they have a chance of recovering their losses.

Sigurdson is particularly frustrated that Puratone entered creditor protection rather than filing for bankruptcy. He said affected grain farmers would have been able to recoup their losses if the company had gone bankrupt because of a clause in the federal Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act that protects farmers and fishermen. “I know that according to the act, it says that a farmer who has delivered grain there within 15 days of the time th ey go into ba nkr u ptc y , th ey become a secured creditor and they go to the top of the list.” The clause, section 81.2 in the act, does provide special rights for farmers, said Vic Kroeger, director of corporate recovery for Western Canada with MNP in Calgary. However, provisions in the clause make it tricky for farmers to recover their loss, he added. “There is a right that they can get back the grain that is still remaining from what they delivered,” he said. In other words, a farmer can get the grain back if the company still has it. In this case, the grain was probably fed to Puratone pigs.


China’s approval holds up Glencore acquisition of Viterra BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Glencore International’s proposed $6.1 billion takeover of Canadian grain handling company Viterra may not close until Dec. 10. Officials from Viterra, Canada’s largest grain company, confirmed last week that the deal is still awaiting regulatory approval from China’s ministry of commerce.

MOFCOM is the last regulatory authority that must approve the deal before it can go ahead. Viterra had hoped the deal would be closed by Nov. 15. “The ongoing review process continues to advance; however, MOFCOM’s approval is no longer expected to be obtained in time to facilitate a closing of the acquisition by Nov. 15, 2012,” Viterra said in a news release. Glencore and Viterra have been

awaiting Chinese approval for months. Viterra shareholders approved Glencore’s takeover bid in May, accepting an offer that would pay $16.25 per share. Viterra officials had initially indicated that the takeover would be completed before Aug. 1, 2012, before the beginning of the 2012-13 crop year. In late August, Viterra announced that MOFCOM’s regulatory approval

process was taking longer than expected and would continue into September. In October, the company said Chinese approvals may not be in place until mid-November. Last week’s announcement, the third such delay in four months, fuelled speculation that China might be delaying its approval until the Canadian government weighs in on a proposed takeover of Canadian oil

company Nexen by China’s CNOOC Ltd. The Nexen-CNOOC deal, valued at $15.1 billion, is still being reviewed by Canadian regulatory authorities. Ottawa’s review of that deal was extended for the second time Nov. 2, and a new deadline has been set for Dec. 10. CNOOC chair Wang Yilin said last week that the Nexen deal is expected to close by the end of 2012.

Farmfair, Agribition strike operating deal Alberta, Saskatchewan collaborate | With only a day apart, international buyers can attend both events BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

EDMONTON — Next year’s Grey Cup in Regina has sparked collaboration between Western Canada’s two largest cattle shows. Because of the Grey Cup, only one day separates Farmfair International in Edmonton and Canadian Western Agribition in Regina. Organizers of both events realized

they would need to work together to make it possible for cattle show visitors to attend both events and that led to opportunities to also attract international buyers. “It allows us to bring a larger contingent of buyers to both events, which is great for exhibitors and certainly great for those that are coming,” said Richard Anderson, president of Northlands, the organization that hosts Farmfair International.

Marty Seymour, chief executive officer of Agribition, said by teaming up, Agribition and Farmfair can eliminate duplication and target a larger audience. “Today’s international buyers have a lot of choice out there in the market place. They can go to Australia, the U.S., South America looking for their cattle and their beef cattle genetics,” he said. “We can bring in international buy-

ers to attend both shows and get access to that many more cattle and producers. It value adds to them and value adds to both our shows.” Stuart Cullum, vice-president for agriculture with Northlands, said the agreement for next year is a first step on a more collaborative effort. Cullum said the logistics of moving cattle quickly between the shows next year served as a catalyst to get the groups talking, and that led to the

international marketing agreement. “Next year because of the overlap there are some exhibitors that need co-ordination to leave Edmonton in time to make it to Regina,” said Cullum. Next year Farmfair runs from Nov. 3-10 and Canadian Western Agribition is Nov. 11-16. FOR MORE FARMFAIR COVERAGE SEE THE LIVESTOCK SECTION STARTING ON PAGE 86.

Farmers hold back on cereal deliveries CWB harvest pool closes | Producers holding onto most of this year’s crop as they decide where to market their grain BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Farmers are holding back most of this year’s cereal crop as they feel their way through the newly deregulated wheat market. The CWB estimates producers are holding onto 65 to 80 percent of this year’s wheat and durum crops. The agency warns that if this goes on for too long, the backlog of undelivered wheat could result in limited delivery opportunities later in the year, rising basis levels and logistical bottlenecks. CWB made the comments Nov. 8, a day before the Nov. 9 sign-up deadline for its harvest pool, the largest of two CWB pools. “I think if you talk to most people in the industry, there’s probably still about 65 to 80 percent of the crop out there that hasn’t been committed yet by farmers to either a pool contract or a cash contract, so there are a lot of decisions still to be made by farmers,” said Gord Flaten, CWB vice-president of grain procurement. “If farmers wait until spring, there may be situations where they may not see delivery opportunities then, or they may see the basis on cash contracts become quite expensive.” Flaten told members of the Inland Terminals Association of Canada last week that CWB officials were happy with the amount of grain committed to the pools. “We are satisfied with our market share to date,” he said. “However, given the environment that we’re in, we do want to procure more tonnes.” Flaten said the CWB would shift gears after the Nov. 9 deadline and focus efforts on securing more grain through the cash market. However, he did not rule out the possibility of the CWB launching another pool later in the year. “As far as additional pools for the rest of the year, we have an open mind on that right now,” Flaten said. Prairie grain growers are taking a cautious approach to marketing wheat. Several issues have convinced

There were new signals last week from Australia, the world’s second largest wheat exporter, that the wheat harvest is likely to be smaller and have less protein than initially expected. Western Australia’s largest grain handler, CBH Group, told Reuters that state-wide wheat production was likely 5.5 million to 6.3 million tonnes, well below the record 11.7 million tonnes harvested last year. And in the eastern states of New South Wales and Queensland, industry insiders said protein levels in prime milling wheat are expected to fall below the normal 13 to 14 percent. In its latest forecast issued in September, the Australian government pegged the wheat crop at 22.5 million tonnes, but a recent Reuters poll of analysts

and traders put it at 21 million. In Saskatchewan, there were more sales of non-board crops such as peas and canola off the combine, at least in some areas. Jason Skinner, chief executive officer of North West Terminal, said sales programs in the Unity, Sask., area were heavily weighted toward peas and canola in September and October. “Even up to this point, we’ve seen a lot of hesitation from farmers to commit their wheat because they’re still trying to understand the new system, the pricing, the pool versus the cash prices at the elevator, and so on,” Skinner said. “Farmers are getting a bit more comfortable with the system now, but at the same time, we’re seeing a bit of a rise in the markets and anytime you get that situation, farmers are not necessarily in as much of a hurry to market their wheat.” Skinner said farmers with high pro-

tein wheat were more inclined to sell into CWB pools because they offered protein premiums that weren’t offered in cash markets. “I think pool prices have maybe been a bit more attractive when you’re looking at high protein grain,” he said. “A lot of the lower protein grain seems to be getting sold onto cash markets, and again, that’s because there isn’t as much of a premium … for that commodity.” However, not all signals point to slow wheat sales. Last week, Commodity News Service Canada reported that western Canadian farmers were selling aggressively into cash markets. A CNS article quoted Winnipeg grain analyst Jon Driedger assessing the situation. “Without the wheat board, farmers aren’t limited in terms of delivery calls …,” Driedger told CNS. “So in some cases farmers have

been taking advantage of that flexibility and have been delivering into the system quite heavily.” Canadian Grain Commission statistics show wheat and durum deliveries to western Canadian primary elevators are ahead of last year’s pace. About 4.3 million tonnes of wheat were delivered to primary elevators between Aug. 1 and Nov. 4, up from 3.5 million tonnes during the same period last year. Durum deliveries were also up at 1.09 million tonnes this year compared to 1.03 million tonnes in 2011. Total wheat deliveries to port terminals, including durum and nondurum varieties, were listed at 5.78 million tonnes during the first 14 weeks of the 2012-13 crop year versus 4.95 million tonnes last year. Prairie grain shipments are normally slow after Christmas because train movement becomes less predictable and winter weather hinders transportation efficiency.

India’s pest problems may be boon for Canada Export opportunities for pulses | India revives pulse import subsidy to control food price inflation BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

India’s faltering pigeon pea crop and its revamped pulse import subsidy could provide much-needed support to Canadian lentils and yellow peas, says an analyst. A story in India’s Business Standard said the countr y’s reliance on imported pulses will increase because of pest damage to the summer season pigeon pea crop. A veteran Indian pulse trader quoted in the article said pod borer has reduced yields by a minimum of 10 percent. Other reports peg the damage at far more than that. “They always have some pest problems. It seems to be much bigger this year. I’ve heard as high as 25 to 30 percent,” said Marlene Boersch, analyst with Mercantile Consulting Venture. “That’s why it surprised me that we haven’t seen a little more follow through on lentils.” Green lentils are a good substitute to pigeon peas, but Canada faces stiff competition in India from excess pigeon pea production in Myanmar and Africa. Boersch thinks Canadian lentils should be a good deal, but importers are hesitant to buy because they believe markets could be turning down. “I have little doubt in my mind that there are some shortfalls that they will one way or another have to address,” she said. “We really need some help with

However, what appears certain is that the poor start to the monsoon season caused significant produc-

tion problems for the summer crop. He said the Indian government has reduced its estimate of summer pulse production by one million tonnes. There are also lingering subsoil moisture concerns as the winter crop is seeded.

“We think that there will be a sustained demand event in India that will last through until March of the 2014 crop,” said Al-Katib. Another encouraging development for Canadian growers is that India has revived a pulse import subsidy that was in place between August 2008 and June 2012. According to an article in the Hindu Business Line, the government will subsidize imports of one million tonnes of pulses to be distributed in 2012-13 through India’s Public Distribution System (PDS). The subsidy has been doubled to $385 per tonne. The goal is to keep food price inflation in check following what is expected to be a disappointing kharif harvest. “I would expect that we might see some of these state buying agencies coming to the market and buying on that basis later in the year, which would be very, very supportive to us,” said Boersch. The Hindu Business Line article said states participating in the PDS program have shied away from Canadian yellow peas in favour of chickpeas, pigeon peas, black gram and green gram from Myanmar, Tanzania, Malawi and Australia. However, this year could be different because of a “paucity of surplus supplies” of products such as chickpeas in export markets. The subsidized price of yellow peas of $37 US per tonne could be lucrative given the open market price of $441 per tonne. Boersch said growers will likely

have to wait until winter for demand through the PDS system to materialize because importers are sitting on ample pea supplies. “They’ll be waiting to clear some of that out before they bring more material in,” she said. Earlier this month, India’s government said it was increasing minimum support prices for domestically produced rabi chickpeas and red lentils, while keeping barley and wheat support unchanged. “They are supporting the two key pulses to wean them off import dependence,” said Boersch. However, she doesn’t believe the seven percent increase in the chickpea subsidy and the 3.5 percent increase in red lentil support will be enough to convince growers to plant more pulses because of poor yields for those crops. “In spite of keeping wheat unchanged, it’s still the highest return per acre,” said the analyst. Boersch used five-year average yields to determine that chickpeas rank third in estimated returns, providing Indian farmers with threequarters of what they can get from wheat and rapeseed-mustard. Lentils are even worse, ranking fifth out of the six major rabi crops. “This (incentive) is not doing much, certainly not doing anything special to support pulses,” she said. Al-Katib said slumping lentil prices will lead to acreage contraction around the globe in 2012-13, but that will help lower the surplus.


U.S. crop survived drought better than anyone expected MARKET WATCH


USDA awaits proof of improving U.S. wheat export prospects


he United States Department of Agriculture might have deflated growing optimism that increased U.S. wheat exports, and perhaps stronger wheat prices, were just around the corner. The USDA’s monthly supply and demand reports released Nov. 9 were negative for wheat and oilseed prices. The USDA did not change U.S. wheat production, but it shaved its forecast of exports to 1.1 billion bushels down from 1.15 billion in the October report. U.S. wheat exports to date are slow and had been lagging the pace needed to reach the USDA’s export target, so the reduction in this month’s export target is based on experience. But a belief had been building among traders that with Black Sea

region exports expected to wind down in the coming weeks, U.S. exports would start to increase. Apparently the USDA will wait for evidence before hitching on to this bandwagon. The USDA also lowered its estimate of global wheat production by 1.62 million tonnes to 651.43 million tonnes. As expected, it cut its forecast of Australian production to 21 million tonnes, a reduction of two million due to dry growing conditions. It kept its outlook for Argentina at 11.5 million. Flooding there might cause that number to be reduced in later reports. The USDA also lowered its expectation of global consumption and the result was an increase in its forecast for ending stocks, which climbed to 174.18 million tonnes, up 1.18 million from October. That was not positive for a wheat rally. The latest USDA report made only minor revisions to its supply and demand estimates, but there was not much other news to trade on so it was closely watched. Soybeans and canola were already on a gradual downtrend on expectations of a bumper South American soybean crop and the USDA report punched values lower. The USDA did not change its soybean production forecasts for Brazil and Argentina. Significant rain final-

ly reached dry areas of Brazil last week, improving the prospects for a successful seeding season. Excessive rain in Argentina has raised the question of whether farmers there will be able to seed all the corn and soybean acres that are forecast. The bearish aspect of the USDA report was the increase in the U.S. soybean crop to 2.971 billion bu., a little more than the trade expectation of 2.892 billion bu. The USDA increased its forecast for crushing and exports but not enough

to prevent a slight increase in soybean ending stocks to 140 million bu., up from 130 million in the October report. The trade expected 131 million. The question now is: will the lower prices that flowed from the bearish U S D A re p o r t s p a rk i n c re a s e d demand? Since the peak on Sept. 4, soybeans are down 18 percent. Canola peaked Sept. 14 and since then is down about 10 percent. Farmers have generally enjoyed good cash flow and are in a strong

position to keep their bins closed until buyers offer the right combination of price and basis. Follow D’Arce McMillan on Twitter @darcemcmillan.

More oil, more cash: growers High protein wheat gets a premium so why not high oil canola? say growers BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Some canola growers think it is time they were rewarded for producing canola with high oil content. They wonder why crushers refuse to provide a premium for oil when many of those same companies pay for high protein wheat. “I think that’s a question that is worthwhile asking. That’s what we’re selling. We’re selling oil,” said Todd Hames, a director with the Alberta Canola Producers Commission. Richardson International was contacted to provide a crusher point of view for this story but did not respond. Hames said it’s probably time for another industry discussion on the issue, but it could be a tough nut to crack because there isn’t even grower consensus. “Oil content varies by region, so there is a little bit of a regional pushpull on that,” said Hames, who is also president of the Canadian Canola Growers Association. “Some regions that consistently grow higher oil content are more in favour of the premium than some areas that are not as consistently high oil content.” Oil content is largely dictated by cool conditions during the filling stage of development, which is why

canola produced in northern Saskatchewan and the Peace region of Alberta typically contains more oil than that what is grown in southern Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Brett Halstead, chair of the Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission, said the issue comes up every year but the group has never drafted a policy on it, partly because it is such a divisive issue. “It won’t be just premiums. It will be discounts if you’re below,” he said. He worries that a discount for low oil content would discourage producers from expanding into nontraditional canola growing areas, which is needed for production expansion. Hames agreed that processors and exporters won’t pay more for a tonne of oil, which means some growers will receive more and others less than they’re getting today. However, he doesn’t see anything wrong with that. “If you’re producing more oil, then you should get paid more,” he said. “Just like the guys down south — they’re getting, generally speaking, a higher protein wheat so they’re going to get a premium for that wheat over someone in the north.” He doesn’t understand the industry reluctance to pay growers for high oil content. “Really, we’re growing oil. That’s

what we’re growing. We should be looking at oil per acre, not bushels per acre.” He said a shift toward paying growers for the oil in their seeds would have a valuable trickle-down effect for the canola industry. “The breeders would breed for oil content more if the producer was getting paid for it,” he said. Hames said many of the Alberta growers he represents are just as keen about being rewarded for delivering canola with low moisture content. That’s why the commission supports a move to component pricing, which would take into account oil and moisture content as well as other quality factors. Growers are penalized for delivering canola with more than 10 percent moisture, but there is no benefit for providing drier product, such as six percent moisture. “That’s four percent less water that (buyers) are purchasing,” Hames said. “It’s a good deal for them.” Halstead said SaskCanola has never discussed a low moisture premium, but he’s not real keen on the idea. He thinks that would result in crushers lowering the bar from the current 10 percent level because there are years where they would have to pay a premium on almost

Health benefits keep canola growth humming BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Stunning growth in canola production and processing isn’t making the industry anxious. “As long as the weather holds up, absolutely (we can produce enough canola to keep the crushers going),” said Sean McPhee, president of Vegetable Oil Industry of Canada. Canadian canola and soybean oil

production has more than doubled since 2005, and a new Cargill crushing plant near Camrose and the expansion of the Bunge plants at Altona, Man., and Fort Saskatchewan, Alta., will further increase capacity and demand. McPhee said the significant growth in production is driven by increasing demand from consumers for healthy oil, which he said includes canola and soybean oil.

“A big part of it is the health profile,” said McPhee. American imports of Canadian vegetable oil have doubled since 2007 and Chinese purchases have tripled. Canola production has increased significantly in the past decade, rising from less than six million tonnes of seed per year to 15 million. The increase is due to high-yielding

hybrids, extra acreage and good crop management, analysts say. The increase in vegetable oil production is the result of processors running at full capacity, something that was not always the case in the early-mid 2000s, and a huge increase in crushing capacity. McPhee said crushing companies are expected to have invested $1 billion in new capacity between 2007 and 2015.

Canola crush in Canada has increased almost 70 percent in the past five years. Canola oil exports have almost doubled. The amount going to the United States has more than doubled and the amount going to China has more than tripled.

Deluge of rain delays seeding in France; ruins wheat harvest in Britain PARIS, France (Reuters) — Recent heavy rain could prevent some wheat from being seeded in France and Britain after rapeseed area was lost in the two major European crop producers. The developments add further uncertainty to the global supply outlook, analysts said. How e v e r, G e r ma n y ha s s e e n favourable seeding conditions for both crops, with rapeseed expected to see a jump in area after a difficult seeding campaign last year. A wet October hampered seeding of winter wheat and barley in France, which is the European Union’s top grain producer and exporter. There has been some talk of farmers abandoning plans to seed wheat. “The feedback we’ve had is that in a

zone around the Loire estuary (in western France), people have given up on some wheat sowings,” said Paul Gaffet of the grains consultancy Offre & Demande Agricole. Average rainfall in France last month was 20 percent above normal and the northwest of the country was among those regions that saw precipitation 50 to 100 percent above average, weather forecaster Meteo France said. Analysts had initially expected France’s soft wheat area to recover after a severe frost last winter and to match or slightly exceed the 12.4 million acres seeded a year ago. It was too early to quantify losses. Farmers in northerly regions are used to seeding wheat late following the sugar beet harvest, Gaffet said.

Seeding has accelerated since late October and as of Nov. 5, 80 percent of winter wheat and 93 percent of winter barley had been seeded, according to farm office FranceAgriMer. Recent rain has helped rapeseed, which endured dry conditions during the late summer seeding season, but the moisture was too late to prevent some area being lost. Analysts initially expected strong rapeseed prices would spark more French rapeseed area, but ODA said its follow-up survey on emerged crops suggested reduced area. “In the centre region, rapeseed spent a month in the ground without being able to emerge because there wasn’t enough moisture,” Gaffet said. In Britain, farmers have been grap-

pling with persistent rain since the summer that has already spoiled the wheat harvest and has since disrupted seeding of rapeseed and wheat. The winter wheat area looks set to fall, analyst Jack Watts of the HomeGrown Cereals Authority said. “We definitely are going to be down, but it is too early to put numbers on that because there are still opportunities for farmers to plant the crop,” he said, adding that the optimal planting window had closed. Watts said the weather over the next few weeks would play a key role in determining the extent to the decline in area. “They (farmers) will carry on trying to get it in the ground right up until the New Year, enthused by the strong

forward prices,” he said. Spring barley is the most likely alternative crop if farmers are unable to get winter wheat into the ground. Rapeseed area in Britain is also expected to be lower. A late wheat harvest this summer limited opportunities to plant the oilseed crop, which goes into the ground earlier than wheat. British rapeseed area has risen sharply in recent years, reaching 1.87 million acres for this summer’s crop, up 7.2 percent from the previous season. In contrast, German winter grain and rapeseed seeding has progressed well without major problems, analysts said. Oil World forecasts 11 percent more rapeseed acres in Germany.





Lamb producers hope for stability Prices levelling | But supplies not keeping pace BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

CL ARESHOLM, Alta. — Lamb prices have dropped from heady highs last year, and producers are hopeful they have stabilized. Howard Paulsen, the Alberta Lamb Producers director for Zone 1, said lamb prices are now $110 compared to $185 last year. “One of the things I’ve heard is it was just kind of a perfect storm,� said Paulsen. “A lot of people had kept back a lot of their replacement ewes, and they came on the market. The States, with their drought, a lot came up from the States. Too many lambs came into the system all at once.� As well, consumers reacted negatively to high retail lamb prices, which likely contributed to price reduction. “There needed to be a bit of a correction but it was just more than everybody wanted,� he said. “But most of our producers are still very optimistic.�

One of the things I’ve heard is it was just kind of a perfect storm. A lot of people had kept back a lot of their replacement ewes, and they came on the market. The States, with their drought, a lot came up from the States. Too many lambs came into the system all at once. HOWARD PAULSEN ALBERTA LAMB PRODUCERS

ALP chair Phil Kolodychuk agreed. “Everybody had a great year because the prices were high, but that wasn’t a sustainable price for consumers,� he said. “Consumers start backing off when the prices get too high, and the slaughterhouses have to pay too much to get the lamb and then

Canada produces 41 percent of the domestic lamb consumption. Imports from New Zealand and Australia make up the rest. | FILE PHOTO they’re going to lose money because they can’t price it high enough.� Producers at the Zone 1 and 2 meeting heard that the United States had exported feeder and slaughter lambs because of the strong Canadian price and U.S. feed shortages. That may not sit well with Alberta producers, but demand continues to outstrip available lamb supply in the

province and the only federal lamb slaughter plant, SunGold in Innisfail, Alta., is not able to run at capacity. Kolodychuk said imported lambs are understandable, given that scenario. “They’re a business and they don’t have the amount of animals to fill their contracts. They have to find them somewhere,� he said.

“I wish we had the animals to give them, but you have to totally understand their position, that they have markets and they need to fill their orders.� ALP figures indicate Canada produces 41 percent of the domestic lamb consumption. Imports from New Zealand and Australia make up the rest.

age $64.55. D3 cows ranged $50-$65 to average $58.19. Railgrade cows ranged $126-$131. Butcher bulls fell $1.50 per cwt., dropping to levels not seen since early January. Weekly nonfed exports to Oct. 27 totalled 6,428, down four percent. JBS was an active buyer and a counter seasonal increase in live and dressed values is anticipated.

Larger supply and undesirable pen conditions pressured prices. The Canfax average steer price closed 40 cents lower and heifers fell 83 cents. Light calves traded steady while mid-weight steers and heifers were generally $1 lower. Heifers 600-800 pounds generally traded $11 per cwt. lower than their steer counterparts. A few sales of pre-conditioned calves were reported but showed no noticeable premium over fresh weaned calves. However, once more pre-conditioned calves are on offer and load lots can be assembled the market will likely pay a premium. Auction volume totalled 100,550 head, up 28 percent from the previous week. Weekly exports to Oct. 27 totalled 4,328, up three percent from the previous week. Feeder export volumes are now the

largest since the end of May. Competition for choice lots of cattle is strong with interest from across Canada.

CANFAX REPORT FED PRICES EDGE HIGHER The higher prices of two weeks ago allowed feeders to get current with their marketing, allowing them market flexibility last week. Weighted average prices for steers were $114.07 per hundredweight, up 29 cents and heifers were $114.54, up 12 cents. Dressed sales were $191$192 delivered. Many cattle were expected to be carried over into the following week. U.S. buyer inquiry was light and no cash trade to the U.S. was reported. Total sales volumes of 15,591 head was up almost 10 percent from the week before. Alberta cash-to-futures

basis narrowed to -$10.65. Weekly exports to Oct. 27 fell 12 percent to 15,294 head. JBS Brooks has yet to regain beef market access to the U.S. and chain speed are sluggish. Packers in general are struggling to improve margins making it a challenge to hold fed prices steady.

FEEDERS PRESSURED Highlighted by numerous presorted and special breed sales, auction volumes established annual highs in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

WP LIVESTOCK REPORT HOG PRICES DOWN The disruptions caused by Hurricane Sandy are still hurting pork demand and interfering with pork transportation in the United States. U.S. packers have met all their needs to meet the demand for the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, and there will be a period of lower demand leading up to Christmas. Iowa-southern Minnesota hogs were about $59 US per hundredweight Nov. 8, down from $60-$61 Nov. 2. The U.S. composite pork carcass cut-out value was $86.63 Nov. 9, up a little from $85.56 Nov. 2. U.S. slaughter for the week rose to 2.37 million from 2.36 million the previous week. It was 2.31 million a year ago.

BISON STEADY Last week’s report was incorrect.

The market is steady so this week’s report is the same as the one that should have run last week. The Canadian Bison Association said Grade A bulls in the desirable weight range are under pressure with current sales around $3.50-$3.65 Cdn. per pound hot hanging weight with some sales to $3.90. Grade A heifers were $3.50-$3.80 with discounts for poor quality. Animals older than 30 months and those outside the desirable weight range may be discounted. Yearlings were mostly $1.80-$2.10 in the live market in light trade, with a few sales to $2.20, depending on quality.

SHEEP STEADY Beaver Hill Auction in Tofield, Alta., reported 1,206 sheep and 68 goats sold Nov. 5. Wool lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $129-$140 per cwt., 70-85 lb. were

$121-$132, 86-105 lb. were $112$122 and 106 lb. and heavier were $100-$106. Wool rams were $50-$75 per cwt. Cull ewes were $45-$62 and bred ewes were $125-$160 per head. Hair lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $126-$139 per cwt., 70-85 lb. were $120-$131, 86-105 lb. were $105$115 and 106 lb. and heavier were $90-$100. Hair rams were $65-$72 per cwt. Cull ewes were $64-$88. Good kid goats lighter than 50 lb. were $150-$195. Those heavier than 50 lb. were $150-$210 per cwt. Nannies were $55-$80 per cwt. Billies were $85-$150. Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported 1,476 sheep and lambs and 99 goats traded Nov. 5. All weights of good quality lambs sold actively at steady prices. Good goats and good lean sheep traded steady. Plain, fat sheep were lower.

BEEF LOWER Choice cutouts traded 26 cents lower and Select was 35 cents lower. The lingering effects of Hurricane Sandy are hurting beef demand. Canadian cutout values are trading 40-62 cents per cwt. higher than the same time last year. Montreal wholesale quotes were unavailable.

Speedy passing of food bill may put brakes on trade


s many politicians and agricultural leaders have pointed out over the last few weeks, the devil will be in the details of Bill S-11, the Safe Food for Canadians Act. While it seems most agree that the bill is generally headed in the right direction, there are plenty of pitfalls that should be considered before it is passed. And it will be passed quickly, because that’s the way the Conservative majority government handles all of its bills. S-11 sped through its clause-by-clause evaluation at the standing committee on agriculture in just two hours Nov. 6, and will likely headed to the House for third reading the week of Nov. 19. That’s pretty fast for a massive bill with far-reaching consequences for agriculture and the economy. Liberal ag critic Frank Valeriote made a motion for an extension on the bill’s debate in committee, but was voted down. The Conservative majority on the committee also voted down amendments, such as the suggestion that an audit of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency be included. Worse, two days of hearing witnesses — an historically tiny number — were irrelevant. All the Conservatives on the committee seemed to hear was that people supported S-11 in principle, and then moved on despite the raising of some good points. For example, Christian Lacasse, Canadian Federation of Agriculture vicepresident and former Union des producteurs agricoles president, expressed his concern that producers who send cattle to other provinces for slaughter will need to obtain a new permit to do so. Since not all provinces have slaughter plants, the new bill would set up an uneven playing field for many producers. Lacasse also identified issues around access to confidential information. The bill says inspectors should have access to producers’ computers, but those computers contain a lot of confidential information unrelated to traceability. Lacasse wants those inspection powers

to be limited, and rightly so. Keith Mussar, vice-president of the Canadian Association of Importers and Exporters, noted that export food processors can presently use certain ingredients that are not allowed in Canadian foods, such as spices. If these ingredients don’t meet Canadian food standards under the new act, they will not be allowed into the country. The bill prohibits the export of foods if they do not meet Canadian requirements, even if they meet those of the importing country. That, said Mussar, will cost Canada jobs and trade. These are not just the finer points of a bill, but important issues that should have been considered before the bill cleared the committee. The House will now approve the bill before the regulations attached to it are written, which is not unusual: bills often pass to provide direction for regulation and law. However, it ’s difficult to endorse such a bill when the details are not available. As Lacasse said, S-11 will overhaul existing regulations, but ag groups do not know what the regulations will be. He asked to see the regulations as soon as possible and to be consulted on them before they are etched in stone. Based on the speed with which S-11 is hurtling through the passage process, it’s hard to assume consultation will occur in any real sense. However, S-11 regulations should be carefully examined to ensure the agriculture and food industries are not hamstrung by red tape, trade problems and higher fees. Canadian farmers and processors have been well-served by the testimony provided to the ag committee by farm group leaders, who obviously read the small print, considered it carefully and provided intelligent direction. It is profoundly to be hoped the government listens.

We would like a little more substance from Justin Trudeau s’il vous plait NATIONAL VIEW


Trudeau will have to speak on policy issues before too long


s often happens, the newspaper cartoonist captured the moment in a way that 1,000 words of prose could not. In the Parliament Hill weekly The

Hill Times, cartoonist Michael DeAddler last week commented on the so-called Liberal leadership race. There is a crowd. “We could take our time and slowly rebuild the Liberal brand,” says one. “Or we could just follow that guy,” says another as Justin Trudeau stands on a pedestal, cloak and staff in hand, a modern-day Moses prepared to lead his tribe to the promised land. How true. How pitiful. Barring a catastrophe of epic political proportions, Trudeau will be elected next April as the 12th leader of the storied Liberal Party of Canada, the party that gave Canada Wilfrid Laurier, William Lyon Mackenzie King, Lester Pearson, Pierre Trudeau and Jean Chrétien. It led Canada for most of the last century.

It helped create modern Canada. But the Liberal Party has fallen on hard times. In the 2011 election, it fell to third place for the first time, receiving less than 20 percent of the popular vote for the first time. Until 2006, only one Liberal leader , Edward Blake in the 19th Century, did not become prime minister. In recent years, two leaders have been included in that column — Stephane Dion and Michael Ignatieff. In April, interim leader Bob Rae will step down without a sniff of power that he so craved after a brief and disastrous stint as NDP premier of Ontario in the 1990s. The obvious replacement is Justin Trudeau, son of a storied prime minister and by all accounts a uniter and a national phenom.

Why just last week, a poll showed that with Trudeau as leader, the Liberal party would cruise to a majority government with 160 seats in Parliament. Really? No. The poll was taken before Trudeau uttered a single word about his platform, his vision of the country. It was taken before a single other serious candidate announced his or her plan to run. It was a poll that made Liberal “we were born to govern” hearts go pitter patter but it has little reality attached. There still is a leadership race to endure and there will be other candidates. Trudeau may actually have to articulate a policy more specific than that he wants to bring Canadians

together. And he may have to articulate a view on agriculture because one of his opponents almost certainly will be Martha Hall-Finley, a former Liberal MP who recently paid off her debt for her 2006 failed leadership race and appears poised to run again. She will run in part on a platform that includes phasing out supply management. Trudeau has not spoken yet about agriculture, but with his Quebec base, it is easy to imagine he will oppose Hall-Finley’s proposals. But beyond that, does he offer a vision to the country beyond being his father’s son? For the moment, polls suggest that for Canadians and Liberals, that is enough. Really?





Elected CWB directors fail at governance

Canada will benefit from U.S. recovery



or the first time in my farming history, it’s near the end of October and all of the wheat I produced this year is delivered and sold. The CWB exercised authority over farmers’ wheat since 1943. Farmers were required to get a permit book under which grain deliveries were allowed. The CWB exercised stringent control over these deliveries and thus payment for wheat. The total payment would not be known until almost year and a half after farmers had harvested their wheat. Can you imagine working in a job where you did not know how much you would get paid until more than a year after you had completed the work? These policies were based on the organization’s philosophy of control. There was no allowance for beginning farmers, no allowance for lack of storage and no allowance for an individual farmer’s need for money at a specific time. I met this cute smart gal in the agriculture program at university. We were married in 1981 and decided farming was our future. We fixed up an old house with a wood stove to live in. Yes, it was 1981, the year interest rates went to 21 percent. My uncle gave me a great deal on some land at just 14 percent interest. We were rich with education, focus and desire. We just didn’t have much money.

The ability to market grain without restraints imposed by the Canadian Wheat Board is enjoyed by Henry Vos, a former CWB director. | FILE PHOTO There was a drought in 1982 and our crop was small: 25 bushels per acre of No. 1 wheat and 15 bu. per acre of canola. At that time, the CWB was not accepting any wheat at our location and also controlled canola deliveries. The fall canola quota was three bu. per acre to the elevator and five bu. per acre to the crusher. The only cash we could get was from a small cash advance on wheat and the canola we were allowed to deliver.

We had lots of bills and high hopes of putting in a crop the next year. There was no choice but to go and work in the oilfield. I saw my new bride about once every two weeks for the entire winter, which wasn’t great for a relationship. We paid lots of interest, and the other bills got paid. At that time I vowed there had to be a better way for farmers to market their wheat and barley. When the opportunity came in

2005, I ran for election as a director for the CWB. Basically, I felt the organization needed to change and meet farmers’ business needs, drop the political agenda and focus on the business of marketing grain. It became clear through the election campaign, and later at the board of directors table, that there was little appetite for change. Everything was viewed through the lens of single desk or not. Some will argue that the organization tweaked the policies in the last few years, and it did, but the control remained. The period of elected farmer directors running the CWB will go down in history as a failed experiment in governance. Poor decisions and poor governance were the result when board decisions were based on a political philosophy rather than the business interests of a $5 to $8 billion organization and the business needs of the farmers it served. I resigned from the board of directors in the fall of 2011. I could not stand to see farmers’ money being wasted on a political fight. The federal government removed the monopoly this past August. By the way, she is still cute and smart and we have been married 31 years. After 30.5 years under CWB control, this new freedom feels good. Henry Vos is a farmer and former CWB director.


Land prices force maximum returns per acre HURSH ON AG



and in our area is way overpriced and cash rents have become ridiculous,” said a thoughtful young Alberta farmer in Red Deer attending the Agri-Trade Show. His concerns mirror those of producers across the Prairies. “Good land is worth $3,000 an acre and there have been some cash rents of over $100 an acre in our area. Now, every landlord thinks they should be getting $100 or more.” This 30-something producer has thought about pulling up stakes and moving to an area of Alberta or into Saskatchewan where good quality land is a more reasonable price. But land prices are going up everywhere and it’s a big decision to uproot your

family and move somewhere else. Farming with his parents, the family operation is successful and it isn’t small, but expansion opportunities are limited. The conversation then turned to farm size versus lifestyle. “Everyone wants to expand, but you see some guys who are really big and they never get to spend any time with their family. They’re always working, always on the phone. Not sure that’s how I want to raise our kids.” The pressure on land prices and cash rents doesn’t show any signs of easing. The grain price outlook remains strong and interest rates remain amazingly low. Farm machinery continues to increase in size and capacity, making it possible to farm more land with fewer people. Plus, investors are involved in the land market, particularly in Saskatchewan where values had been a relative bargain. You can find analysts who believe land prices are due for a downside correction, but there’s so much pentup buying demand that any price dip is likely to be short term. A sharp

interest rate increase or world economic problems that erode the demand for grain are the most obvious factors that could cause a significant retrenchment in values. It can happen. Sky-high interest rates in the early 1980s precipitated a major drop in land prices, particularly in Saskatchewan, but also in Alberta. Although values started rising again in the early 1990s, it took years to recoup the losses. The profitability we’re enjoying in the grain sector is having a logical effect. The profits are capitalized into land values. It’s no different than the profits from dairy production being capitalized into quota values. Profitability has also attracted corporate farming interests. Although family-run operations remain the dominant force, some large corporate-run farms have been established. With expansion difficult, more attention is being focused on maximizing returns on existing acres. There’s a strong incentive for drainage to gain more seeded acres, but the water has to flow somewhere and this creates a great deal of con-

troversy. In parts of Manitoba, tile drainage is being installed to make land more productive. As land becomes more valuable, this investment starts to look more attractive. In Saskatchewan, shelter belts are being ripped out to accommodate larger equipment. One of the main reasons for shelter belts was wind erosion control. With modern farming practices, that’s less of a concern. Input use has never been higher. The seeder is used in the spring and the combine is used in the fall, but the high clearance sprayer is used throughout the entire growing season. And there’s a seemingly endless array of new inputs that all promise increased returns. Younger farmers have never experienced high interest rates or the declining equity that comes from falling land values. By comparison, dealing with high land values and high rental rates are good problems to have. Kevin Hursh is an agricultural journalist, consultant and farmer. He can be reached by e-mail at




ay back in 2006, all hell was breaking loose in Western Canada’s lumber industry — and not just because of the softwood lumber disagreement with the United States. Big companies like Weyerhaeuser were closing pulp mills and sawmills, while smaller companies struggled mightily with a sagging market. Exports to the U.S., still Canada’s biggest lumber market, stalled. That was the canary in the coal mine. Had American banks not been in a mess, the worst recession since the big Depression would not have happened, but conditions were already worsening two years before anyone really understood subprime mortgages. Most people were either ignoring the signs or did not have enough information to forecast the coming disaster, apart from a couple of nowrevered economists. Well before 2008, people were not buying homes. Therefore, builders were not building homes. That’s where the rubber always hits the economic road, and the Canadian lumber industry’s collapse was there to provide a road sign. The best indication, then, that the American economy is starting to show signs of life is housing starts — and lumber prices. Prices have risen 27 percent since the end of March to $300 US per 1,000 board feet for a particular kind of two-by-four. Other lumber prices have risen 10 percent. Demand is high and supply is short because companies have reduced production capabilities. Prices did spike in early 2011, but they headed right back down again. What’s different about the lumber price today is that it has been trending upward for months, since the autumn of 2011. Now, U.S. housing starts are really starting to improve. They jumped 15 percent in September over August, and prices rose about five percent. You have to go back to early 2008 to find the same level of activity, although the peak came three years before that. I doubt anyone is doing hand stands over the limping U.S. economic recovery just yet, but these are the strongest signs of an improvement in about five years. Assuming new pressures don’t sink our biggest trading partner again, this is good news for the Canadian economy. It’s not great news for people who might have been considering buying property or other investments below the line. Expect to pay more in the coming months.

STOP WILD HORSE CULL To the Editor: I am writing to encourage all Albertans to continue with the journey of forcing the Alberta government’s cull of Alberta’s wild horse to cease. The wild horse populations in

Alberta date back before the European settlers arrived, dating back to a Spanish horse foundation. Why does the Alberta government refuse to see the value in protecting our natural resource and a major part of Alberta’s heritage? In the eyes of the Alberta government, these magnificent animals are considered feral. Webster’s dictionary defines feral as “having escaped from domestication and become wild.” How could these horses have escaped domestication over 200 years ago when the West was not settled nor explored? Alberta’s wild horses are a true heritage species and need the legislation to protect them. Please write

The government under the leadership of (prime minister) Stephen Harper has managed to get rid of the Canadian Wheat Board single desk, reduced the number of Canadian Food Inspection Agency inspectors, resulting in the scandal with XL Foods and E. coli — the United States actually detected it first — are against co-operative movements as indicated in various farm newspapers, and are tampering with the Canadian Grain Commission. Soon the same thing will happen to our wheat as happened to our beef, Japan is already questioning the quality of Canadian wheat. Now the government is tampering with our natural resources. The Canada-China Foreign Investment Treaty has been signed by prime minister Harper without any public consultation, any First Nations (input), any parliamentary debate or even a single vote in the House of Commons. How democratic is that? The content of this agreementinvestment deal will allow investors, including Chinese state-owned enterprises, to claim damages against the Canadian government in secret for decisions taken at the municipal, provincial, territorial or federal level that result in a reduction of their expectation of profits. Everyone needs to be informed on this issue and try to stop it. The only website I have seen so far outlining details of the agreement is at As indicated on this website, this is not a partisan issue, and all people need to stand up for Canada before we are totally sold to foreign investors that may have more rights than we do. We won the war but now we are just turning around and giving our country away. Don’t just stand by and do nothing, as we as Canadians are worth much more than that.

OPINION — except your country if you don’t take action. Joan Scott, Grandview, Man.

TRADE WISDOM To the Editor: We really have to question the wisdom of our current relations with China, especially the Canada-China Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement. Stephen Harper and the Chinese president signed off in Vladivostok Sept. 8, with no press release. It has been tabled quietly in Parliament and can come into effect any time after 21 sitting days. No debate in public, Parliament or with other levels of government. Governments can sign treaties with-

out parliamentary approval, but it is unusual for something of this magnitude to not have debate. Remember the big NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) debates? The House has been debating the Canada-Panama trade deal — trade volume $213 million — since last spring and the Canada-Jordan trade deal — trade volume $90 million — for six days. The Canada-China deal — trade volume $64 billion — no debate whatever. Why no debate? What is in this investment deal? It sets out a series of obligations for Canada, new rights for Chinese stateowned enterprises and fails to deliver on reciprocity for Canadian companies operating in China. We are bound to the terms for the next 15 years minimum. A future government that wants out has to give one year’s notice, and even when cancelled, any existing Chinese opera-


tions in Canada are guaranteed another 15 years of benefits. Canada must promote and encourage Chinese investment in Canada. Chinese government controlled companies operating in Canada must be treated exactly the same as Canadian companies. Now the really nasty parts. The deal allows Chinese companies to sue Canada over decisions that can reduce or diminish their expectations of profit. China can claim damages against Canada for decisions at the municipal, provincial or federal level — even decisions of our courts. Belgium is dealing with a $3 billion claim with China under a similar treaty regarding a failed bank. Chinese investors need only a minority position in a Canadian company to be covered. Claims go to arbitration behind closed doors and are secret.

No other level of government is allowed to intervene or attend. We are essentially delegating a judicial component of Canadian sovereignty to international arbitrators. The arbitrators are not subject to review in any court. The arbitrators are not judges, often being corporate lawyers, moonlighting academics or members of corporate boards. They can awards billions of dollars of public funds to Chinese government corporations for our government’s enacting legislation that protects our energy security, environment, jobs or public health. The mere threat of a lawsuit can be used in the early part of a dispute to get a government to change or deter certain decisions. This treaty requires that if, in the future, Canada wants to conserve its natural resources — all, including water — we are only allowed to reduce Chinese access to the extent that we

limit our own use. Australia, South Africa and India have wisely refused this type of investment treaty…. Mike Bray, Indian Head, Sask.

Here come the zoomers SPIRITUAL VIGNETTES



re you a zoomer? You could be called that if you are older than 45, according to the Canadian Association of Retired People. CARP’s mandate is to advocate a new vision for aging in Canada. As one with a toenail in the baby boom generation and a pensioner for a few years now, I like the attitude that goes with the organization and the title. Zoomers have a great deal to offer. At a stage when the techno-society thinks of us as fuddy-duddies who are a drain on society, zoomers are doing their own advocacy in health, government legislation, income benefits and local outreach.  They have been face to face with bullying, elder abuse, those who say, “why bother? I can’t make her 28 again,” and their own fear when visiting a geriatric home that “this can’t possibly be my own old age.” They believe life has more to offer. Moses Znaimer, Canadian broadcaster and media pioneer, is president of CARP, and his leadership has infected zoomers with refreshing vitality.  Since 2000, the annual Idea City Conferences invite presenters to speak for 17 minutes on subjects of special interest to them. The Zoomer-Life Conference talks about aging, longevity and life extension. Zoomer magazine keeps readers abreast of happenings “in area of health, finance, travel, science, longevity, fashion, beauty, style, and life in general.” My question to colleagues is how many zoomers are you aware of in your church? Is there opportunity for each to nurture the other, to advocate on behalf of the voiceless, to mentor newer generations and be role models to each other? Our God-given potential is like a treasure we might fail to recognize.

New grain commission fees, structure pass House easily Change controversial | Despite easy passage, critics suggest that legislation would have benefited from more time and witnesses BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Significant changes to Canadian Grain Commission rules and responsibilities slipped through the House of Commons agriculture committee last week with little debate or controversy. The proposals, which will lead to reduced inspection, an end to inward inspection of grain moving between inland terminals and export facilities and tens of millions of dollars in increased farmer user fees, were included in a mammoth budget bill C-45, that initially included little

opportunity for detailed study. The current system of grain trader bonding to cover potential losses for farmers if grain companies go bankrupt before producers are paid would be changed to an insurance system. The government compromised and agreed to send detailed proposals in the budget bill, including agricultural ones, to appropriate House committees for study. However, the agriculture committee spent less than two hours reviewing the most significant changes in grain commission rules in two decades and produced little chance for MP input.

Witnesses invited to speak at the short session largely supported the proposed changes. Grain commission officials spoke, followed by Pulse Canada and Canadian Special Crops Association official Gordon Bacon, Canadian Federation of Agriculture vice-president Humphrey Banack and Canadian Canola Growers Association general manager Richard White. The agriculture-related portions of the budget bill were then sent back to the finance committee for final approval. Chief commissioner Elwin Hermanson linked changes to the grain

commission with the end of the CWB monopoly this summer. “We are at a pivotal time in the grain sector, when public policies and regulatory structures need to keep pace with the rapid changes that we see in the marketplace,” he said. ”Modernization of the grain sector is an important priority for this government and modernization began on Aug. 1 of this year with the removal of the Canadian Wheat Board single desk monopoly for wheat and barley.” Hermanson said many players in the grain industry “feel that the grain sector needs a revised Canada Grain Act to remain modern, competitive

and profitable.” However, opposition MPs, including New Democrat Niki Ashton from Churchill, Man., complained that few witnesses were able to appear at the committee hearing, including representatives of Churchill and Winnipeg, where jobs will be lost by CGC downsizing. NDP agriculture critic Malcolm Allen said in a later interview that witness lists seemed directed to supporting government changes. “With such limited time, there really isn’t a chance to get different voices before the committee,” he said.


Food trade expansion ‘ambitious’

The federal government has published a market access report that describes 2012 as a year of significant advances for Canadian food exports. It highlighted 10 key markets, including China, Taiwan and the European Union, in which market access improved in the past year, whether through regulatory changes or legislative changes. Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz and trade minister Ed Fast released the report in Ottawa Nov. 8. Ritz said agriculture’s advance was part of “the most ambitious trade expansion plan in Canadian history.” A key improvement in 2011 exports was an increase in canola sales to the European Union for its biofuel industry. The value of canola seed exports increased from $59 million to $200 million during the year and crude canola oil for use in biodiesel production increased from $24 million to $221 million. “We are working hard to open new export markets in the world’s emerging major economies while continuing to strengthen and expand existing trade relationships,” said Ritz. “More exports mean more jobs for Canadians and sustainable longterm growth for Canada.” Export-oriented agricultural sectors quickly applauded the government for its trade promotion efforts. “Many of the major access gains highlighted in this report have required years of hard work to come to fruition,” said Canadian Cattlemen’s Association president Martin Unrau, who noted that the year’s successes included increased beef access to South Korea and a successful challenge of U.S. country-of-origin-labelling rules at the World Trade Organization. “The results speak for themselves,” Unrau said. “The Canadian cattle industry has true champions in ministers Ritz and Fast.” Canola Council of Canada president Patti Miller said government trade efforts help all of the canola industry, which exports 85 percent of its production.





Food safety bill moves nearer to final passage Government rejects amendments | S-11 promises the biggest changes seen to food regulations in decades BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

The House of Commons agriculture committee has quickly approved new food safety legislation thanks to its Conservative majority, which defeated all opposition proposals for amendments suggested by witnesses. In just two hours, the committee approved the 48 page S-11 bill and rejected dozens of amendments proposed by opposition MPs. The bill now goes back to the House of Commons for final debate and

passage, likely next week. It is the most significant upgrade in food safety legislation in decades but it slipped through the Commons agriculture committee clause-by-clause study Nov. 6 in less than two hours. A key opposition proposal was that an audit of Canadian Food Inspection Agency resources be carried out now so that when audits required by the legislation every five years are conducted, there will be a baseline against which future results can be judged. Conservative MPs voted against the proposal, arguing that an audit

now would be irrelevant five years down the road because technologies change and the needs of the industry change. “I just think a benchmark now will not be relevant because of the way the industry changes,” Ontario Conservative MP Pierre Lemieux, parliamentary secretary to agriculture minister Gerry Ritz, said in an interview. “What is important in five years is what is needed then and not what was available five years before.” New Democrat agriculture critic Malcolm Allen and Liberal Frank

Valeriote both argued that conducting an audit of CFIA resources now will be critical to understanding later how the agency is doing. “If you don’t know where you came from, how can you possibly know where you are going?” Allen said in an interview. Despite that all opposition MPs said they supported the legislation and voted for it, they were proposing amendments in part based on proposals from witnesses, who also supported the thrust of the bill but wanted its powers made more


Canada’s food traceability falls short: report BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Canada’s food traceability system has fallen behind that of competitor countries despite political promises and industry efforts, says a report from the Conference Board of Canada. The report argues that adoption of a more robust traceability system would help the food industry, but the cost may exceed the potential benefit for smaller companies. “In Canada, as in other developed countries, food traceability systems generate both public interest benefits and private benefits but also substantial costs for stakeholders,” said the report published last week. “Efficient and effective traceability systems offer maximum benefits for minimum costs.” Food safety legislation now making its way through the House of Commons will require a food traceability system and better control over food imports once it is approved and passed into law this autumn. The rules for how the traceability system will be implemented are not yet clear. The report from the businesssponsored think-tank stressed that product traceability systems are good for the bottom line. “Private interests are a major factor in motivating the food industry to invest in traceability, in addition to public interest considerations,” it said. “Companies that invest in traceability systems can gain significant private benefits.” Benefits can include lower production and shipping costs. However, the report said not all food sector players have understood the benefits of traceability.

Port shipments up post CWB Thunder Bay official says volume hurt by federal subsidies to Port of Churchill BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

October was a busy month for the Port of Thunder Bay, which saw 22 vessels arrive — the highest in a single month since 2007. | FILE PHOTO

Crop shipments leaving the Port of Thunder Bay in Ontario broke a 15-year record during September and October. Tim Heney, chief executive officer with the Thunder Bay Port Authority, said outbound shipments of grain, pulses and oilseeds during September and October were the highest for any two-month period since late 1997. Total grain volumes through the first 10 months of 2012 are also on

pace with last year, he said. At the end of October, total 2012 grain movements through the port stood at 4.683 million tonnes, up narrowly from 4.62 million tonnes during the same period last year. “Nobody really knew what would happen without the wheat board … so there’s always been a bit of speculation …,” Heney said. “So far, it’s been pretty good.” Outbound grain shipments during September and October were aided by an unusually large number of incoming ocean vessels seeking backhaul business, Heney said.

A total of 22 ocean vessels or salties arrived at the port during September and October, Heney said. Twelve of those arrived in October alone, the highest number for any single month since 2007. Thunder Bay’s port facilities serve two types of ships: lakers and oceangoing vessels in the Handysize class. Due to draft restrictions, Handysize vessels that haul grain out of Thunder Bay cannot be fully loaded. They normally carry 23,000 tonnes of grain or less. A fully loaded laker can haul 10,000 to 12,000 tonnes, grain that is usually delivered to transfer elevators in Eastern Canada. Heney did not say whether movements of wheat, durum and malting barley, the grains formerly under the Canadian Wheat Board monopoly, have increased or decreased. This year marks the first crop year without the wheat board’s single desk being involved. Grain movements through Thunder Bay dropped significantly during the 1980s and 1990s but have been holding their own over the past decade. Shipments last year totalled 6.3 million tonnes, up slightly from the 10 year average of 5.9 million tonnes. Thirty years ago, the port handled a record 17.7 million tonnes.

Adrian Measner, president and chief executive officer of Mission Terminal, one of seven grain terminals at Thunder Bay, agreed that grain movements appear to be normal. At Mission, volumes were above normal in August and September and below normal in October, Measner said. Before Aug. 1, some grain industry observers had speculated that shipment patterns for prairie grain would be affected by CWB changes. Some suggested that more of the prairie crop would be shipped through west coast facilities, as opposed to Thunder Bay or Churchill. According to Measner, there have been no major surprises. “I don’t think it’s played out too differently than what we had anticipated anyway.” Meanwhile, Heney said federal transportation subsidies aimed at boosting grain shipments through the Port of Churchill are affecting Thunder Bay’s business. The $25 million Churchill Port Utilization Program offers a shipping subsidy of $9 per tonne to grain companies that ship grain, oilseeds, pulses and special crops through the northern port on Hudson Bay. The subsidies are offered on a firstcome, first-served basis with $5 million available each year for the next five years. “It’s interesting that you’re subsidizing in cash one route versus another,” said Heney. “What kind of transportation policy is that?”





PAMI celebrates advances in agriculture Institute focuses on ag innovation and research BY WILLIAM DEKAY SASKATOON NEWSROOM

HUMBOLDT, Sask. — Air drills, tractors, sprayers and combines have been recognized as the Big Four of agricultural innovations that led Saskatchewan to build a $6 billion grain and oilseed industry. The Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute of Humboldt, Sask., celebrated 35 years of innovation by naming the equipment as critical tools in the industry. “To see where you are headed, you need to know where you’ve been,” said PAMI president Dave Gullacher. “Honouring the Big Four will give us a clearer picture of the path of modern agriculture.” The Saskatchewan government used the Nov. 1 event to announce nearly $1 million in funding for PAMI and its Western Beef Development Centre. “In order to continue to keep the economy of the province going and meet our objectives in the growth plan, we’re going to need the kind of innovation that we see from PAMI to continue in the future,” said agriculture minister Lyle Stewart.

PAMI employees 107 staff and has a budget this year of $15 million. “We can typically demonstrate $20 per dollar of return in terms of wealth and jobs in the agriculture sector,” Gullacher said. “Research that’s going to be used by producers can often have a bigger benefit than research staying inside a manufacturing plant because the implementation of it is on a much bigger scale. You have millions of acres to implement any given piece of technology in agriculture, and that’s where you get the big benefit.” The air seeder topped the list. “The very first thing that comes to m i n d i n t h e Ca n a d i a n p ra i r i e region and really in particular, Saskatchewan, has produced the very best dry land seeding equipment in the world, no question,” Gullacher said. He said the innovations developed with zero till and direct seeding equipment were game changers. “There’s no other area that has relentlessly, unceasingly worked to develop seeding equipment. It began to occur back in the ’70s and it has really just gone full-bore from then until today,” he said. Gullacher said continual upgrading has met the challenges. Jim Bessel agreed. “The first pillar is where it all starts,” said the former agronomy specialist with the Canola Council of Canada. “It’s putting the seed in the ground and how we manage it from that point forward.” Bessel said the concept of precision seeding still needs fine tuning, particularly with canola and small seeded crops where input costs are high. “Yes, you do have a higher return

this point in time of depositing the spray on the soil. Navigation for 24 hour operation and safety are all things built into those sprayers over the last few years.” Combines have seen advancements in terms of size, effectiveness, navigation and control, particularly over the past two decades. “The combines of today are four times the size in terms of harvesting

rate of the harvesters that we began to test when PAMI started in the ’70s. That basically means that one operator can do the work of four operators back in those days. That is going to be key going forward as we have fierce competition for labour and skilled workers in this province. Even though they’re four times the size, they’re losing only about half of the grain that harvesters would typically

lose back in the ’70s,” he said. “They’re now satellite guided, they can now be adjusted on the go from the operator’s seat and there are just a number of other advancements from the ancient processes of reaping, threshing and winnowing. Those things are still there in the combine.” Terr y Youzwa, a farmer from Nipawin, Sask., said he appreciates the advancements made in farm equipment. “We’re getting more efficient and it’s becoming more economical. As it becomes more common use, the technology improves and the cost comes down,” said Youzwa. “We’ve seen that with guidance systems.…They improve your ability to operate more effectively, more efficiently, improve your footprint, but they also make you more productive and you get more out of a day with reduced fatigue.” The Saskatchewan government

hopes to increase crop production in the province from 26 million tonnes per year to 36 million tonnes per year by 2020. Bigger, faster and smarter machines will help achieve these goals. “We need to produce another 10 million tonnes on top of what we’re doing now of agricultural products and we’re going to have to really stretch the envelope to be able to do t h a t , b u t w e m u s t d o i t ,” s a i d Gullacher. “The key innovations that we see are going to come from the crop scientists, fertilizer specialists, people who develop sprays, pesticides and inoculants. Machinery must fit in and accommodate the production of those new varieties and bigger tonnages of those varieties. “So we’ll be in an enabling role. The machinery is always the enabler that carries out the process for production.”


per acre in relation to gross margin, but it’s the net benefit, whether or not at the end of the day you still have something left in your pocket,” he said. “Saying all that, we still have a ways to go to be a little more precise when we look at the whole idea of seeding.” The tractor, number two on the list, has become a close companion to the seeder. At one time it was an allpurpose tool, but its job on the farm has become more specialized. “It’s main task is to pull the seeder equipment for most of the farming that’s done in Saskatchewan,” said Gullacher. The needs of the seeder have helped shape and design the modern tractor. “The changes in size, power, traction, navigation, emissions and operator comfort and safety really have changed hugely over the 35 years that we’ve (PAMI) been here,” Gullacher said. The sprayer is number three on the list. “We know that spraying isn’t for everybody, but in terms of the overall time use, it’s a huge contributor to what’s happening,” Gullacher said. Sprayers have become big and fast, and Gullacher said they will become increasingly important in the evolution of future technology. “They do the best job possible at or 1 888-283-6847 or contact your Bayer CropScience representative.

Technology shows way to future production goals Smart technology | As precision agriculture expands, computerization and robotic machinery may follow BY WILLIAM DEKAY SASKATOON NEWSROOM

There’s little doubt that farm machinery will continue to grow bigger and faster as the Saskatchewan government attempts to increase crop production. The goal is to increase crop production in the province another 10 million tonnes per year by 2020 from the current 26 million tonnes per year. “We know there’s going to be a lot of change and challenges put forth in terms of production,” said Les Hill, manager of technical services and

business development at the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute. PAMI recently held a vision session about the future of the industry as part of a bigger event celebrating the past 35 years of innovation. Thirty agricultural leaders from Saskatchewan were divided into groups to discuss and brainstorm key suggestions. The group included representatives from major producer groups as well as manufacturers and value-added processors. “PAMI is here to deliver practical results for the agricultural industry. Sessions like this are essential to

ensure that our research is focused on producing the new technologies farmers want and need,” said PAMI president Dave Gullacher. Before the session began, Gullacher named the four outstanding pieces of machinery that were seen as critical tools in the industry: air drills, tractors, sprayers and combines. Forum participants were asked to focus their thoughts on the Big Four and make suggestions under the topics of crop characteristics, rural population challenges, genetically modified crops, labour and technology. Smarter technology dominated the

discussion, said Jim Bessel, a former agronomy specialist with the Canola Council of Canada. “The future of robotics was certainly one of the key factors because of precision applications. Precision

Bushels of smiles. To see how InVigor® hybrids are performing in your area visit:

seeding will be more of a focus, and I think that was a hot topic at a lot of tables,” he said. Discussion at his table also touched on computers and the use of drone technology in the military. “There are all kinds of things that you may not always have a live person sitting in the seat of a tractor, or on a sprayer or what have you,” he said. “You may be able to set it up that you can have more of the technology that’s available through computerization and robotics to accomplish the tasks that are necessary, especially for large acres and large farms.” Grain storage was also talked about, particularly canola and flax. “Storage being what it is, with large bins these days, has created some new challenges because of the large capacities of these bins and maintaining the quality of the oilseeds is always a key factor,” he said. Market issues, sustainability and adaptability were discussed at length at Linda Braun’s table. “We all agreed that larger might not be smarter. It may make sense in some instances,” said the executive director of the Saskatchewan Flax Development Commission. “It’s interesting whether or not you were coming from a farm perspective, or a research perspective or a trade perspective. Some of the same things were coming out.” Key suggestions included: • Smarter machines: increasing robotics in farm machinery so that 24/7 harvesting is possible with fewer workers. However, participants did not go so far as to endorse entirely driverless machinery • Smarter crops: researching new and improved varieties of highmargin crops and using genetic modification to develop crops that provide for each other, such as one crop providing readily available nutrients or pesticides for another crop coming next in the rotation • Smarter first, before bigger: building farm equipment that is easier to operate and maintain while continuing to improve efficiency • Consumer is king: ensuring producers understand and respond to what consumers want • Filtering information overload: ensuring that farmers have access to training and unbiased advice to deal with the increasing complexity of the industry. This should include providing high quality and standardized skills training for the emerging workforce of professional farm machinery operators • Sustainable farming: lowering the environmental impact of farming and ensuring crop varieties are viable in the long-term, even under changing climatic conditions “This isn’t just a wish list for the agriculture industry. These research goals will define a major part of the future of Saskatchewan and the world,” Gullacher said. “Premier (Brad) Wall’s goal of increasing Saskatchewan’s agricultural production by 10 million tonnes by 2020 makes it all the more essential that we develop new and better ways to grow and harvest crops. On top of that, we live in an increasingly hungry world where Saskatchewan will bear an ever-larger responsibility as a food producer.”

Old soles get new life | Cowboy boots are made into purses BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

EDMONTON — Heather Kyle’s boots were once made for walking. Now they’re turned into purses. Kyle has spent the last five years turning previously worn boots into funky purses. She cuts off the bottoms, turns the leather inside out, adds decorative touches and sends them away to be stitched back up. Then comes the hard part of wrestling the hard, stiff leather back the right way. “It’s not like turning a sock inside out,� said Kyle at her booth at the Heritage Ranch Rodeo artisan room at Farm air International. Kyle scours thrift shops for boots as well as straps and conchos off old purses to reuse for her boot purses.

“It’s a real scavenger hunt for me when I go into a thrift shop,â€? said Kyle. “The stitching speaks to me. When I see the stitching, I know what I’m going to do with the boot.‌ Red boots are hard to find. Women must be having too much fun with their red boots and are not giving them away.â€? When she finds pink boots, she adds a silver breast cancer ribbon concho and makes them available for breast cancer fundraisers. Kyle got started when she saw a boot purse in a shop in Winnipeg . After making herself a purse from her own boot collection, every time she went out, someone wanted to buy it. “I got a little carried away,â€? said Kyle, who sells her Swanky Shanks cowboy boot purses at rodeos and high end artisan shows and from her garage “bootique.â€? Her clients wear western gear year round or want novelty bags for rodeo or stampede events. Some people turn their father or husband’s old boots into purses as keepsakes. Kyle hopes to start a western consignment and thrift shop with all her western finds of western dishes, boots, furniture and clothing. “I’m a thrift store maniac.â€?

Revitalizing a community | An old school turns into a thriving hub for business, arts and education BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

CYPRESS RIVER, Man. — For two years, Linda Truelove dreaded walking past the elementary school in her community. For 50 years, from 1959 to 2009, the clamour of kids playing and shouting on the school grounds was a familiar sound in Cypress River in southcentral Manitoba. After the school closed in 2009, it bothered Truelove to wander past the school and hear nothing but the breeze. “When you walked by, you would listen for the kids,” said Truelove, whose children attended the school, who attended as a child and who worked there as an educational assistant. “It was very sad to (walk) past here for two years.” Life returned to the school last fall when a community group purchased the building and grounds from the local school division. Truelove and the directors with the Cypress River Resource Centre bought the 7,000 sq. foot school and surrounding eight acres of land for $100. Skeptics in town scoffed at the idea, with some residents wondering why anyone would want an old school. “Something new usually creates a lot of conversation at the coffee shop,” said Georgette Hutlet, a director. In the first year of operation, the centre has proved the cynics wrong. The directors opened a secondhand store in the school, hosted a music festival and held a Saturday morning farmers’ market. In addition, Assiniboine Community College of Brandon will use the school to train 25 licensed practical nurses starting in January. The course will last 22 months and the arrival of 25 new people will have an impact on a town of 165. Nursing students are already renting rooms or homes in the commu-

nity, which should stimulate social and economic activity in the small town. ACC is training nurses in communities outside of its Brandon campus because the college hopes students will take a job in a rural community after graduation, Hutlet said. “(They) bring the course to an area where there is a need for nurses.” Landing the LPN training course was a coup but Hutlet is also proud of the inaugural Prairie Wind Music Festival that drew 200 people and is held on the school grounds in June. The directors borrowed the concept from Clearwater, Man., which has hosted the Harvest Moon Festival for 11 years. Jolene Gardiner, who farms near Clearwater, said this year’s event attracted more than 1,200 people to a community of 64. Community leaders in Clear water purchased the vacant school in the town, named it the Harvest Moon Learning Centre and developed educational programming. The Harvest Moon Society, which runs the centre and the festival, offers workshops on subjects ranging from forest gardening to root cellar construction to rainwater catchment systems. It also partners with others to offer farmer training courses and University of Manitoba credit courses. The society also wants to revitalize skills from earlier times on the Prairies such as canning, milling grain, making jam and gardening. “Things that our parents knew and our grandparents did all the time,”


The society has teamed up with Manitoba Farm Mentorship to offer the Exploring Your Small Farm Dream course, where aspiring farmers can learn about the challenges and opportunities of running a farm. The course is offered in Clearwater.

» As well, the society will soon take

over the farm mentorship program, where interns live on farms that practise organic or sustainable agriculture.

» Ten farm families around

Clearwater have created the Harvest Moon Local Food Initiative. It’s a buying club, where consumers can order products like pork, vegetables and eggs directly from farmers in the group.

Gardiner said. When the nurse’s training program ends, the Cypress directors are considering offering bread-making classes, a master spinners course and other rural arts. The Cypress society also owns eight acres of land behind the school, which could be used for agricultural test plots. “I think the land is going to be a huge opportunity for us,” Hutlet said, noting any enterprise chosen must be financially sustainable.

Within 12 months, the directors of the Cypress River Resource Centre opened a secondhand store in the school and hosted a music festival.

Give and take: respect key to family’s success Targeting skills | Brothers have individual responsibilities and interests on the mixed farm BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

CHIN, Alta. — John, George and Mark Lohues are points on the triangle that make up Lohues Farms and Coyote Flats Charolais. Their homes at the three corners are separated by an expanse of fertile farmland purchased by their late father, Hank, 13 years after he immigrated to Canada from Holland in 1956. Theirs is a family farm, with the brothers managing their separate areas of expertise in the farming operation that involves grain, pulses, row crops, a feedlot and a purebred cattle business. Together, they farm about 1,600 acres on property north of Chin in southern Alberta. John has four children with his wife, Shelley. George and his wife, Angela, have three and Mark and his wife, Trish, also have three. And although the brothers agree it can be difficult for families to work together, they’ve developed a method that works. “It’s trust and give and take. We trust each other that we’re all going to do the best we can,” said Mark. George agrees. “In our younger years, we had a few scraps. Later on, we just realized that we’re not all the same and we just have to accept that.” John also weighs in. “I think we figured out pretty quick

that the three of us farming together was going to be a way better way to go about it than trying to start out each on their own. So you just sort of swallow your pride and go with it.” Each brother has his own area of responsibility. A daily morning meeting at the feedlot, where they talk over coffee, sets the pace. John handles the row crops, Mark runs the cattle side and George, who also serves on various commodity boards and organizations, is mostly involved with crops and marketing. “I kind of get my nose into everything,” he said. When their father bought the land, it was considered poor because of its sandy soil, but irrigation proved ideal for potatoes and sugar beets. Those same advantages have driven up land prices in the region, making expansion difficult. A quarter section of irrigated land in this area recently sold for $1.4 million. George said feeding some of the crops through the cattle adds value to the operation, and the land base can handle and benefit from the manure. The family has been in the Charolais business for 22 years and now has a herd of about 110 purebred cows. “What we do is, we sell bulls and then with our customers that we sell bulls to, we try to buy back their calves ranch-direct, so it allows us the opportunity to buy calves, get a healthier animal,” said Mark.

“Also it allows our customers to come back throughout the year and see what their cattle do on the finishing end as well. We’ve had good response to it.” They also run a 3,600 head feedlot, about 40 percent of which is custom feeding. Concentration on Charolais in their own herd is a conscious choice because of flexibility in marketing, said Mark. “You can market a steer calf at 1,250 pounds or you can take it to 1,400 lb. You have that window where you can market them where they will still yield well.” On the farming side, the brothers

embrace technology, including GPS, RTK and yield mapping. George said they look forward to the day when variable rate manure application is possible, and he thinks variable rate irrigation will soon be in use on their farm. The brothers have quiet enthusiasm for the future of farming, but also for its present. John mentions the autonomy that the farming life provides and the opportunity to be your own boss. “Not that we get a big rush out of being a boss, but just that we’re able to manage our own time,” he said. Adds George: “I find after working

in the office, I can feel the stress rising up. I can last about half a day and then I have to go outside. If I had a job that was in the office, I’d be a wreck. “I can just feel the tension leave me as I step outside the door. I take a deep breath of air and I just feel it go away.” Mark has other things on his list. “I just love the outdoors. And I like livestock. Probably any variety of livestock, but I still get a kick out of a calf trying to take its first steps or making a sick calf better.” Despite those benefits, the brothers worry about the future of small farms. High land prices and environmental pressures may lead to more land being rented by farmers but owned by corporations or estates. They’ve seen examples in this region. “It makes me a little bit sad,” muses George. “I would sooner see farms a little smaller, that you could have pride of ownership, and where people are able to run their own farms rather than work on a farm. “But maybe that’s pie in sky.”





Gather friends and family for a special breakfast TEAM RESOURCES



pecial meals with guests usually focus on suppers, but breakfast is often overlooked as a prime time to visit with friends and family. Breakfast can end up being brunch so a hearty meal often fits the bill. These recipes allow for advance preparation and are ideal for an after church brunch or a busy weekend morning. They can be doubled or tripled for larger groups. My cousin married a man from El Salvador and they treat us to huevos rancheros for a special breakfast. Huevos rancheros was invented as a way to use up leftover tortillas and salsa. Corn tortillas are typically used but flour tortillas work also.

COUSIN LORNA’S HUEVOS RANCHEROS 4 - 5 tomatoes puréed 125 mL with 1/2 cup water in blender

6 tbsp. white onion, 90 mL finely chopped 6 tbsp. green pepper, 90 mL finely chopped 4 tbsp. cilantro, chopped 60 mL 2 tbsp. cooking oil 30 mL pinch of garlic salt 4 drops Tabasco sauce 2 tbsp. ketchup 30 mL mild chunky salsa 1 avocado 6 eggs 6 corn or flour tortillas Saute onions and green peppers in a pot with cooking oil, then add garlic salt and cilantro. Add blended tomatoes with water and cook over medium heat for 12 minutes, then add Tabasco sauce and ketchup for more colour and flavour. Add salsa to thicken and extend the volume as needed. Fry eggs sunny side up and put on tortillas that have been heated either in microwave or on the grill. Use one egg per tortilla and ladle sauce over the egg.

Poached eggs are best runny. Spray skillet with cooking oil and heat over medium heat. Cook bacon, turning once, until heated through. Place one bacon slice on each muffin half, top with poached egg and Hollandaise sauce. Smoked salmon, black forest ham or prosciutto can be substituted for the bacon. Top with steamed asparagus if desired. Serves six. To poach eggs: Fill a pot with three inches (5 – 8 cm) of water. Add one teaspoon white vinegar (5 mL). The vinegar will help the protein in the egg white coagulate

around the yolk faster. You will not taste the vinegar in the finished dish. It can also be made without vinegar. Bring to just below the boiling point but be sure it doesn’t bubble. Use the freshest eggs possible. The white will be thicker and hold closer to the yolk. Break into a small dish. Make a whirlpool in the pot by stirring with a wooden spoon. This current will help the white wrap around the yolk. Slide the egg into the middle of the whirlpool. Cook in the hot water for about three minutes. When it has reached

Depending upon the size of your pot, cook a few at a time but don’t crowd. If you are making them in advance, poach the eggs and drop them into a container of cold water. Refrigerate in the water if done a day ahead or set aside if you are using them soon. When ready to serve, use a slotted spoon to place them into a pan of simmering water to reheat. If using a wide pan, put in a few eggs at a time, and by the time the pan is full, begin removing them in the same order. The eggs don’t have to be hot, just warm.

Safety issues in alcoholic home SPEAKING OF LIFE



My h u s b a n d c a m e h o m e drunk and mean from the bar. Fortunately, he passed out before his screaming and shouting got any worse. As usual, he was contrite and apologetic the next morning. This time, he has promised me and the kids that he will quit drinking. But he refuses to go to Alcoholics Anonymous or sign up for treatment programs. Even without professional help, I want to support my husband and do what I can to help him. Please give me some ideas.


Some people have recovered from alcohol abuse on their own, but most who try do not. Addictions are powerful and difficult and chances for relapse are high. If the recovering alcoholic is not working with someone who has the knowledge or experience to help through recovery, his risk for relapse is even higher, so I encourage him to get support somewhere. My concern is also for the wellbeing and safety of you and your children. If you insist on staying with your husband, you should at least have a safety plan for you and your children. When Dad is drinking, you need to know where you can go for protection and how you are going to get there. Don’t try to deal with it alone. You can attend Al-Anon meetings or programs your health centre offers to help those living with addicts. People who have been where you are now can help you figure out the signs and signals of when your husband is at risk for drinking again. They will work with you to make sure that your family is safe while you support your husband through his recovery.

Satisfaction gained from repeat customers Fine dining, rural style | Carnduff, Sask., bistro draws patrons from miles around STORY AND PHOTOS BY CHRISTALEE FROESE FREELANCE WRITER

C A R N D U F F, Sa s k . — It ’s n o t uncommon for the Olive Branch Bistro to turn away customers who have driven to this southeastern Saskatchewan town to sample dishes ranging from escargot to baby back ribs to steelhead trout. While barbecued chicken nachos and crab stuffed mushrooms are among the most popular menu items, diners also enjoy the Turtle cheesecake. Bistro founder and owner Angie Haider has a hard time keeping up with the demand for her cheesecake, even priced at $10 per slice. She embeds the popular dessert item with gourmet chocolate, Amaretto, dulce de leche and other unique ingredients. “If it’s a Saturday night, and I know I’ll have lots of time on the weekend to make another one, people have paid $200 for a (whole) cheesecake,� said Haider, 37. “What the heck, that’s a pair of boots for me.� The 18 tables at the bistro are usually reserved, with customers driving up to three hours to eat in one of the town’s first bank buildings. Tara Beck, Carnduff ’s economic development officer, said the entire community benefits from the success of the restaurant. “We feel very fortunate to have the Olive Branch Bistro in town because it brings in a lot of new people and a lot of visitors to the community,� she said. “It has helped to put Carnduff on the map.� While dining at the restaurant sev-

eral years ago, Beck talked to diners from Moose Jaw who were making the trek on a regular basis. Haider said the best part of her business is the repeat customers. It’s not uncommon to have diners driving to Carnduff just for supper, and she even attracts some regulars from as far as North Dakota and Manitoba. Haider employs a staff of seven workers five days each week. In 2000, she took over a small coffee shop and turned it into a smoke-free restaurant before provincial legislation went into effect. “It was pretty stressful but I didn’t think I was making a bad decision and I know there was a very big need for a nice place in our area.� She slowly drew a crowd that appreciated her unique menu and smokefree venue. In 2004, she purchased the current building, doubling her capacity. Haider said people in rural areas are willing to drive for something different, noting how 80 percent of her patrons come from beyond the town limits. “I think people come for the whole package, the atmosphere, the service, the food and the fact that everything is homemade and you can tell.� The oil activity in the region has also helped the business, with most meals averaging between $40 and $60. Haider said it took people a while to get used to the menu format and restaurant rules of no children under five and no groups of more than six people. It’s also a struggle to get people to make reservations. It’s been a steep learning curve, but also a rewarding one for Haider.

Longer exposure time required for bee-pesticide testing: study Assessing toxicity effects | British researchers examined the effects on bees after exposure to various chemicals over a 28-day period Those exposed to lambacyhalothrin were around 50 percent. The combination of pesticides resulted in close to 70 percent worker mortality. The youngest workers were the hardest hit. Large numbers died within four days of hatching and were unlikely to have contributed any work for their colonies.

Power Rich Fertilizer Can Add Significant Increases in Yield and Returns! D DISCO BIR


DRESDEN, Ont. — There may be a fundamental flaw in the way pesticides are tested for their toxicity to bees. A British study has found that exposure times used in the tests are too short, seldom longer than 96 hours. The study, written by Richard Gill, Oscar Ramoz-Rodriguez and Nigel Raine of the University of London’s School of Biological Sciences, was recently published in the scientific journal Nature. “Our results emphasize the importance of recent recommendations b y t h e E u r o p e a n Fo o d S a f e t y Authority … proposing the need for longer term toxicity testing on both adult bees and larvae, new protocols to assess cumulative toxicity effects and separate risk assessment schemes for different bee species,” the study said. Gill said four elements used in the study’s design may make it unique: • the bee populations tested were allowed to forage naturally • pesticide exposure mimicked the concentrations bees would realistically face in actual agricultural fields • the study included an evaluation of the impact of exposure to a combination of two pesticides. • most importantly, the effects on the bees were monitored over a lengthy period of 28 days If the study been cut off after 96 hours, no ill effect on the bee population would have been observed, Gill said. “That’s the interesting thing. We didn’t see any significant differences until after about two weeks.” Buff-tailed bumblebees, which are crucial pollinators in Europe, were used for the study. They’re easy to work with because colonies are relatively small. Gill said the study may help scientists understand how pesticides affect other bee species, including honeybees. Gill and his associates started with colonies comprising a single queen and 10 or fewer workers at the start of the trial, reflecting the natural stage of colonies when European crops begin to flower. The 10 control colonies were not exposed to insecticides, while the other 30 were exposed to imidacloprid, lambda-cyhalothrin or a combination of the two. Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency is reevaluating imidacloprid and other neonicotinoids to assess their effect on bees. Imidacloprid is often used as a seed treatment, while lamba-cyhalothrin, a pyrethroid, is used as a foliar spray on a wide range of crops. The imidacloprid was administered in a sucrose solution and the lambdacyhalothrin on a filter paper surrounding the feeder. This mimicked a foraging bee landing on a flower sprayed with lambda-

cyhalothrin to access the nectar and pollen, which could contain imidacloprid residues. Worker losses were 30 percent for the control groups over four weeks, which is a level of loss at which colonies can be sustained. Losses for those exposed to imidacloprid were significantly higher, around 40 percent.

Bumper crop may hike Indian exports

Hemp makes it a

High inventory | Record harvest has prompted unrestricted wheat exports NEW DELHI/MUMBAI (Reuters) — India looks likely to harvest a bumper crop of wheat next year, its sixth in a row to exceed demand, after late monsoon rain replenished soil moisture. The strong results strengthen prospects for exports from the world’s second-biggest producer for a second year. Annual monsoon rain picked up after a slow start in June, prompting farm minister Sharad Pawar to exhort farmers to plant winter crops early to cash in on good soil texture. Farmers took Pawar’s advice and have planted wheat on three to five percent of the normal acreage, which should increase to 40 to 60 percent by Nov. 20, slightly ahead of the usual pace, said Indu Sharma, chief of the state-run Directorate of Wheat Research. “If temperatures do not r ise abruptly in end-February and earlyMarch, we are heading for a harvest almost as big as last year,” she said. India, also the world’s biggest consumer of the grain after China, produced a record 93.90 million tonnes in 2012 for an annual increase of eight percent. Demand amounts to 76 million tonnes a year. Inventories have increased after repeated bumper harvests, largely because of higher prices that the government assures to farmers. The additional supplies have forced the

state-run Food Corp. of India to store grain in the open. Stung by criticism over its inability to protect wheat stockpiles from rot and decay, the government lifted a four-year old ban on exports in September 2011 before also allowing exports from state-run warehouses. The government will continue unrestricted wheat exports if farmers produce yet another bumper crop, said P. K. Joshi, a director at the International Food Policy Research Institute. Exports from India could make up for a global shortfall next year after drought parched other key producing areas. Drought hit the Black Sea countries of Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan this year, forcing them to slash their harvest by a third. Russia’s 2012 wheat crop will lag officials’ estimates by six percent. A severe drought in the United States is shrinking but not fast

enough. In Australia, the early harvest is showing poor yields. Saddled with unmanageable stocks and a large food subsidy bill, India’s government recently agreed not to raise the price it will pay to buy wheat next year from local farmers for the first time in decades. However, trade, industry and government officials believe the flat wheat price is unlikely to restrain production. A m p l e s o i l m o i s t u re, u s e o f improved, high-yielding seeds and early seeding all help boost productivity, Sharma said. “The early onset of winter, a comfortable water level in dams and high prices of wheat in the local market will lure farmers to plant wheat,” said a senior government official from the biggest wheat producing state of Uttar Pradesh. Higher subsidies of fuel, food and fertilizer have prompted many economists to forecast a fiscal deficit of six percent of gross domestic product this year, but Chidambaram forecasts 5.3 percent, up from a target of 5.1 percent. Farm ministry sources say the government could revise the purchase price for wheat if producer states such as northwestern Punjab and Haryana and northern Uttar Pradesh press for an increase around March, just ahead of the harvest.

Strong price, markets | Grower says returns have often exceeded other crops STORIES BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

EDMONTON — Hemp has earned a permanent place in Chris Butkiewicz’s crop rotation. “Hemp is one of our better money makers,” Butkiewicz of Tilley, Alta., said during the Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance convention. “It’s not our easiest crop to grow, but it is one of our highest returning crops. We enjoy a challenge.” Butkiewicz started growing hemp six years ago with a trial 60 acres. After trials and successes, his 260 acres of hemp are now the same as other high value crops such as confectionary sunflowers and timothy. “I just look at the long range,” he said. “Hemp has been very steady in price. It seems to be consistent yields, and prices have been consistent. I like to grow non-traditional crops. They don’t fluctuate in price as much as conventional crops.” Butkiewicz estimates hemp earns 30 to 50 percent more than some of his other crops, including canola. He said a consistently strong price

and no sign of lowering demand makes it easier to put up with the harvest hassles. “There seems to be tons of market. Right now there’s demand for everything. It’s a great time to be a farmer.” Markus Schmulgen, president of the Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance, said there is a positive feel to the industry. The group is predicting Canadian farmers will grow 100,000 acres of hemp by 2015, up from 25,000 acres today.

Farmers have been telling us that when it comes to growing canola they are looking for more than yield. With outstanding yield potential, DEKALB brand canola hybrids also offer strong agronomics, an enhanced disease package, ease of harvest, and the superior weed control of the Genuity® Roundup Ready® system, to provide the total offering.

‘great time to be a farmer’


“This industry will grow leaps and bounds. I believe there will be more producers, more processors and more consumers,” said Schmulgen. Hemp first became legal to grow in Canada in 1998. In those days, the amount of hemp grown exceeded demand. Manitoba farmers grew the most acres at first, but that is now spread more evenly between the three prairie provinces, especially with prices that make hemp a competitive alter-

native to other crops. Hemp plays a major role on Dalyce Brewin’s organic farm near Taber, Alta. “It fits in great with rotation. It helps take care of different weed control,” said Brewin, who operates Rowland Seeds. Brewin increases the value of his crop by cleaning seed on the farm before sending it on for further processing. Seed markets are good, but he hopes researchers will soon help

develop a good market for fibre as well. Bales of hemp now sit in stacks waiting for future markets. “We would really like to see the fibre industry grow. That’s one of our big focuses now. Now only the seed is utilized.” Will Van Roussel has grown hemp for three years under irrigation. He started with two small fields at his farm near Bow Island, Alta., and hemp now accounts for one-fifth of his acreage.“I was impressed with

how the crop grows,” said Van Roussel, who also grows hemp for sale as pedigreed seed. “There are no real harvest issues or horror stories I heard from other growers. This isn’t too bad to grow.” Unlike other hemp crops, which are two metres tall, the variety grown under irrigation is the same height as wheat, which makes harvest easy. The crop is swathed and combined dry, simplifying storage. Irrigated hemp produces an average 1,500 pounds per acre. At an average 65 cents per lb., a reasonable hemp crop should gross $1,000 an acre. “That’s what we’re targeting,” Van Roussel said. “It doesn’t compete with hybrid canola, but puts it in the same category as edible beans or irrigated canola.” He said his neighbours are also starting to look seriously at growing hemp. “The first year or two it’s a curiosity thing. As they see I keep growing it, they think I must be making money and they start asking questions.” He expects four neighbours to grow hemp under irrigation next spring. Schmulgen said farmer success stories will help expand the industry, which helps fill the growing demand for hemp seed. The association’s job is to help develop new varieties, give farmers production advice and help processors meet the growing demand for product. “The processors are literally busting at the seams,” he said. “They don’t know where to get the next processing capacity from, and producers are coming back into the fold. There was a backlash, but we are maturing as an industry.”



Hemp firm seeks public investment EDMONTON — Naturally Splendid hopes to be the first publicly traded hemp food company in the world. Craig Goodwin, chief executive officer of the British Columbia firm, hopes investors’ will be attracted by the company’s products. “A core group of people will want to invest in a environmentally friendly, natural food company,” he said. “The core objective is to get great tasting food, healthy tasting super foods, out to the general public. A public company is the best way to attain that goal.” Race Capital, a capital pool company, will use a reverse takeover mechanism to raise $1.75 million. Naturally Splendid sells its hemp seed, hemp oil, hemp protein and hemp supplements in 200 stores, but it hopes to have its products in 2,500 stores within a year. “Hemp has massive potential in the natural healthy food category, and it is very attractive to investors right now,” said Goodwin. A public company is one of the few ways consumers can be owners in a company, he added. “We hope people who taste the product will eventually become investors in the product.”

Saskatchewan announced in August that an eight-person committee would consider industry-led options and report a preferred option to agriculture minister Lyle Stewart early in the new year. The province is the only one that still uses government employees to conduct brand inspections and it charges more than inspectors in other provinces. Last year, it also lost more than $150,000. The co-chairs of the committee, Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association chair Mark Elford and Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association president Harold Martens, updated producers at a recent SCA district meeting. Elford said the committee has looked at different options and asked for cost breakdowns. “We did look at the financial statements of the Alberta system,” Martens said. One option is to sign a contract with Livestock Identification Services, which charges $1.25 per head. LIS has a budget of about $5 million annually and a shortfall of about $500,000, Martens said. However, some of the money goes toward research projects. In North Dakota, a producer group comprising representatives of various sectors provides brand inspection for about $1 per head. Asked if there was any chance the government would change its mind, Martens said no. “It’s a done deal,” he said. A resolution from the meeting calling for producers to take on brand inspection themselves and include Manitoba, which relies on Saskatchewan inspectors, carried after discussion. That shouldn’t preclude a contract with LIS if that turns out to be the best option, producers said. Brand inspection will remain an important part of livestock traceability, added Elford, and systems have to be compatible as livestock moves from one province to another. Resolutions passed at SCA district meetings have to go before the full membership at the annual meeting in January.

Astronauts scoop up hemp cereal NASA deal is big deal for food company BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

EDMONTON — A small British Columbia food company has taken its hemp breakfast cereal from farmers’ markets to the International Space Station in two years. Holy Crap, a hemp mixture added to breakfast cereal, will be shipped into orbit in December to feed Canadian astronaut and mission commander Chris Hadfield. “Holy Crap will be in space,” said Rob MacNeil, general manager of HapiFoods Group Inc. of Sechelt, B.C. NASA scientists have studied the hemp cereal for more than a year to see how it would fit into the astronaut’s diet. Storage room is at a minimum in space, which means the food taken into orbit must be functional and packed with nutrition. Two tablespoons of Holy Crap are enough to give astronauts their needed morning nutrition. “Our product is a fully complete protein, and it’s also one of the highest absorption rates,” he said. Consumer demand for hemp food products is growing in Canada, but Americans are still wary of drug affects linked to its marijuana cousin. “There is a stigma still attached to the product in the States,” MacNeil said. “What better endorsement can there be for hemp products than it’s feeding astronauts? If NASA doesn’t have a problem with it, how can there still be a stigma attached to it. We hope it propels the whole industry mainstream.”

Portable NIRS units analyze food samples in 30 seconds Technology reveals food value | Knowing the digestible energy, protein, starch and fat content in livestock feed can improve feed efficiency BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

RED DEER — It takes about 30 seconds to analyze a sample of grain using portable NIRS technology compared to the week it takes in a laboratory. Near infrared technology spectroscopy is not new but is becoming more commonplace for grain and forage analysis. It is also widely used in the medical field for assessing cancerous tumours, babies’ brains and burns, said Mary Lou Swift, a researcher with Alberta Agriculture. The big advantage for livestock

producers is assessing the nutritive value of feed. “Any tool we can use to improve either how you buy grain or manufacture feed, check your feed before it goes to the swine herd will have some impact on your bottom line,� she said at the recent swine technology seminar in Red Deer. Alberta barley breeders developed an NIRS program in 1993 to predict digestible content of barley, particularly when selecting new hulless varieties. The technology also revealed other feed values such as protein, starch, lipids and fat in barley, wheat, peas,

canola meal, distillers grains and wheat byproducts for hogs, cattle and poultry. Digestible energy is an important component in pig feed, but grain quality can vary depending on weather, variety or fertilizer use when the crop was growing. Those mixing feed rations often depend on bushel weight to assess quality. “We know bushel weight, unless it is very, very low, does not measure the energy content of the grain,� she said. Studies have found digestible energy in barley can vary from 2,300 to 3,460 kilocalories per kilogram of

barley, which could mean a 20 percent difference in the cost of energy per kilogram. Incorporating low energy barley into a feed ration might result in animals eating more to meet their energy needs for growth. Feed efficiency will decrease and the time it takes to reach market may increase. Fecal excretion may also increase. NIRS is based on the idea that organic molecules containing hydrogen will absorb light, which is energy. Feed ingredients comprise organic molecules such as protein, starch,

sugar, fat and fibre. The technique produces a fingerprint called a spectrum when exposed to electromagnetic radiation. Each ingredient has a unique spectrum. “We are measuring the amount of light that is reflected back,� she said. Portable units are gaining popularity in southern Alberta feedlots, where nutritionists analyze the oil content of dried distillers grain. Research is ongoing. One study is looking at fatty acid composition of pork while another is looking at manure composition. A project is also starting this winter to assess amino acid content.


Don’t cull sow if producing enough piglets

6$6.$7&+(:$1Š6 35(0,(5 %(()(9(17


RED DEER — There are many reasons for replacing sows in a hog operation, but the longer these females stay productive, the more profitable they become. “You need three parities before an animal in your herd actually starts to have a positive cash flow,� says veterinarian Frank Marshall. Older females with strong legs, a sound mammary system and capable of producing more piglets than average should be allowed to stay, he said at a recent swine technology seminar in Red Deer. The most important criterion at Pinnacle Swine Inc. is producing live pigs, said production manager Alastair Bratton. “I would rather manage a piglet on the ground rather than putting a dead pig in our dead bin.� This operation keeps 12,000 sows, 18,000 nursery spaces and several contract finisher barns in Alberta. The number of live pigs takes priority over culling sows just because they are getting older. Bratton figures 10 to 12 percent of Pinnacle’s sows are in their seventh or more parity but are more likely to be the ones with farrowing problems, such as stillbirths. “No management system has been able to eliminate stillbirths, mummified or other management issues.� To stay at Pinnacle, sows must be healthy with strong legs and be able to cycle on time. Keeping noncycling sows in the herd costs 80 cents a day just to feed them. Utility costs, labour and feed are all expensive, so it is better to cull a sow if it costs $4 to $5 per day to maintain it. “They are taking the place of a sow that could be producing piglets,� said Bratton. Pinnacle’s sows produce 27.5 to 28 piglets per year. Their prewean mortality rate is 7.5 percent. The company weans piglets at 18 days of age and expects them to average 5.5 kg. at that time. Sow history is evaluated based on the number of pigs born alive and surviving to weaning at 18 days. The bottom performers are removed.









Food security challenging in northern regions Greenhouse feasibility | High heating and shipping costs present a deterrent to the region’s agricultural sustainability BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Growing fruit and vegetables in Canada’s North has its challenges, but it’s been identified as paramount to ensuring food security in remote regions of the country. A recent conference in Saskatoon on northern food security emphasized that high food prices and a limited supply put the food security and health of these communities at risk, leaving residents with an unreliable supply of food, fewer healthy

options and an increased reliance on processed foods. Officials and community leaders said part of the solution is for residents to grow more food in their communities, providing them with more options and possibly decreasing the need for subsidy programs such as Nutrition North Canada and providing jobs. “I think community greenhouses can be a solution,” said Karen Tanino, a plant scientist from the University of Saskatchewan’s agriculture college, who also chairs a group from the

University of the Arctic that probes agricultural issues. It seems easy, but communities face a host of challenges in building a network of community gardens and greenhouses. Many of them are the same factors that drive up food prices in these communities in the first place, including short growing seasons and high transportation costs. “Unfortunately, many of the issues and challenges in the North are very similar to developing countries,” said Tafino. “The geographic remoteness, the isolation, the lack of training and

knowledge in terms of production, transportation, distribution.” Greenhouses do exist in the North, and the conference heard many stories of successful community greenhouse programs in the region. However, officials said the network and communities’ know-how and skill sets are underdeveloped. “We’ve had lots of greenhouses and gardens from the gold rush era, but the First Nations weren’t really that involved,” said Dawn Charlie from Carmacks, Yukon. “They were somewhat, but there’s a

disconnect between 100 to 140 years ago to today, where people have kind of given it up.” Pragmatic issues also affect the sustainability of these operations: affordable heating sources, the cost of shipping materials and building greenhouses, and production demands, such as a labour shortage and the fact that commercial greenhouse will typically only grow one crop in the northern environment. “The economics of it aren’t straightforward. The way I approach it is worst-case scenario, lowest yield is what you have to look at … what price do we need to sell it for in order to keep the operation going and how much can we afford to actually invest in it?” said Brian Hunt with the province of Manitoba. “Generally, because the prices in the North are so exceptionally, indecently, obscenely high, we can still make a profit and still look attractive in the marketplace.” The federal government called for proposals to study the feasibility of greenhouses in these regions. The request identified biomass boilers as a possible solution to the high cost of heating greenhouses. “I think that we still need to demonstrate that there’s real sustainability in this and that’s part of the business case because the government is only going to support so far,” said Tanino. “But if you can make some money and it can be long term, then it will sustain itself.”

The Saskatchewan government has added $500,000 to a program that funds channel clearing and flood control. The Water Control Assistance Program now has allocated more than $1.2 million to help municipalities deal with water-related issues after two years of excess rain and high moisture levels. The program provides up to half the cost of the work required. This year, 114 rural municipalities, nine conservation and development authorities and one watershed association were approved to share $700,000 to clear channels. Most of these areas are in the province’s east, where flooding has been a problem for several years. The program also provided $520,000 to 72 conservation and development authorities, four watershed associations and one urban municipality to maintain ditches and other flood control infrastructure.

ASSINIBOIA, Sask. — Saskatchewan’s main cattle group says premises identification should be mandatory, but the agriculture minister is sticking with a voluntary process for now. The Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association, which represents all cattle producers who pay check-off levies when they market their cattle, has asked that mandatory premises ID be implemented as part of the

national traceability system. Most other provinces, including Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec, require producers to register a premises ID. “We have been lagging behind,” said SCA chair Mark Elford at a recent district meeting. However, Lyle Stewart says not all producers agree with the SCA board. The membership-based Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association still prefers a voluntary approach, he added.

“We’re still holding to the premise, if you will, that premises ID at least for the time being is to be voluntary,” Stewart said. The ministry has pledged to provide education and awareness, and Stewart said the process will work as the industry becomes more familiar with the system and more producers sign on voluntarily. “I think there will be a time when compliance is 100 percent,” he said. Producers at the Assiniboia meeting noted that new electronic manifests have a field for a premises ID number. However, Saskatchewan producers can leave that field blank. Elford told the meeting he was encouraged that Saskatchewan had at least taken Alberta up on an offer to test its database. Roy White, assistant director of legislative services in the provincial livestock branch, said in an interview analysis has been underway since June and is almost complete. Most of the work centered on the technological aspects of the database. Officials are also looking at systems from other provinces. White said the provinces’ commitments to national traceability require them to have a system in which the information can be validated. This means the system must be able to prove that data such as producer contact information and geographic location is correct. “Right now it can’t be,” White said. “Although Saskatchewan producers typically registered with the CCIA (Canadian Cattle Identification Agency), the CCIA system doesn’t validate the PIDs once they’re in there.” About 5,900 Saskatchewan producers have registered with the CCIA, and officials have said they intend to make the transition to a new system easy. A producer at the Assiniboia meeting who also has cattle in B.C., said her CCIA-registered premises ID, a land location number, went directly to the provincial database at the time of age verification. However, there are times that wouldn’t work, said provincial cattle analyst Grant Zalinko. For example, Canadian Western Agribition would not have a land location. Still, the system will remain voluntary until the minister gives the goahead. White said he believes that is the correct approach. “The real beauty of traceability in the long run will be when producers adopt it on its own merits without a government or a regulation telling them that they have to do it,” he said. The compliance rate isn’t 100 percent even where premises ID registration is mandatory, he said However, other industries, such as hog processors, are now requiring premises ID, and White said he can see the day when it will be needed by all livestock species and perhaps even crop producers. “I think essentially in the long run it will be the marketplace that requires everybody to have a PID and report that PID when cattle are moved as a matter of good practice,” he said.

U.S. lawmakers expected to target crop insurance subsidies Federal deficit reductions | Breaking deadlock on enacting five-year, $500 billion farm bill on ag policy is seen as unlikely WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — Federally subsidized crop insurance will be a big target for U.S. lawmakers looking to cut the budget deficit now that the election is over. However, lawmakers will probably be unable to break their deadlock over enacting a five-year, $500 billion farm bill covering a wide range of agricultural policy from food stamps to crop subsidies and soil conservation. The worst drought to hit the Midwest farm belt in half a century should double the cost of crop insurance this year, and the nagging drought also threatens 2013 crops. Another key question for farm policy watchers after the re-election of

president Barack Obama is whether agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack will serve a second term. Only one agriculture secretary has served two terms since the 1960s. Ethanol likely benefited from Obama’s victory, said analyst Mark McMinimy of Guggenheim Securities, noting Obama and Vilsack are biofuel supporters. The Environmental Protection Agency may decide this month whether to relax the requirement to use ethanol in gasoline. Livestock producers say they are being ruined by high grain prices as more U.S. crops are diverted to fuel. With Democrats still in narrow control of the Senate and Republicans

keeping their majority in the House, analysts said a short-term extension of the 2008 farm law is the likely outcome, probably into spring. “Odds are against a five-year farm bill in the lame duck (session) unless it’s part of a budget agreement,” and a budget deal is also unlikely, said Pat Westhoff of the think-tank Food and Agricultural Policy Research at the University of Missouri. Crop insurance is already the biggest part of the farm safety net, costing the government $7 billion a year. The cost was expected to jump to $15 billion or more this year because the government will shoulder most of the underwriting losses for the 16 insurance companies in the field.

Setting the pace.

The full cost of the drought indemnities will be revealed during Congress’ post-election session, which could direct more attention to crop insurance. So far, farmers have collected $3.6 billion in indemnities that ultimately could hit $25 billion. Senators voted overwhelmingly in June to reduce the federal insurance subsidy for the wealthiest farmers, which could save $1.1 billion over a decade. The House of Representatives has not yet decided on this issue. Costs could be cut further through an across-the-board reduction in the premium subsidy, which is now 62 cents of each $1 in premiums, or by requiring insurers to accept a larger share of losses. The major U.S. farm groups made a strong crop insurance program their top priority for the bill, even if it meant cutting other agricultural supports. “Why start attacking the one tool we’ve been guiding people toward for 25 years?” said Dale Moore, a lobbyist for the American Farm Bureau Federation. The House splintered over how deeply to cut crop subsidies, many of which go to well-off farmers, and food stamps, which are a lifeline for millions of low-income Americans. House Republican leaders refused to call a vote on the bill during the summer, saying there was not a

majority for it. Majority leader Eric Cantor said he will bring the issue to the floor during the lame duck session. The House agriculture committee’s farm bill would slash $16 billion from the food stamp budget over 10 years, the largest cuts in a generation and four times larger than those proposed by the Senate. Barry Flinchbaugh, an economist from Kansas State University, said he does not expect a new farm bill until April. The final version will probably look like the Senate bill, he added. It would end traditional crop subsidies, mainstays of U.S. farm law for eight decades, and instead compensate farmers when revenue from a crop was 11 to 21 percent below normal. Crop insurance would cover deeper losses. The leading House plan would also boost crop support prices by up to 40 percent. Farmers are generally not Obama fans. The president’s share of the rural vote dropped to 41 percent Nov. 6 from 46 percent in the 2008 election, according to the Center for Rural Strategies. However, Vilsack, a former Iowa governor, has been a mostly popular agriculture secretary with a strong focus on overseeing programs as diverse as nutrition, farm exports and the national forest system. Vilsack “is widely expected to continue” at USDA, said McMinimy.

Moisture recovery requires ‘insane’ amount of snow Some areas would need 400 millimetres to get moisture back to normal KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Reuters) — Drought-stricken areas of the U.S. Plains winter wheat belt need a deluge of rain and snow this winter to fully recharge parched farmland. However, it’s an unlikely scenario and means wheat, corn and soybean crops could face a rough new season. The worst drought in roughly half a century is slowly loosening its grip on the United States, but meteorologists and agronomists warn the threat has not passed. Wheat farmers now seeding their last winter crops and corn and soybean growers making planting plans for the spring are haunted by the worrisome fact that parts of Nebraska, Kansas and other key agricultural states have the lowest levels of moisture in years. Indeed, Nebraska recorded the driest June, July and August on record and the third-driest September ever, according to preliminary data from the National Climatic Data Center. Some areas would need two metres of snow on top of 400 millimetres of rain over the next few months just to get back to normal, say climate experts. “It’s an insane amount of snowfall that would be required ... among the top five snowfalls in history,” said Al Dutcher, a climatologist with the National Drought Mitigation Center in Nebraska. “That would be a nightmare.” The heavy rain that hit the eastern United States when Hurricane Sandy roared ashore had little to no relief to offer for drought-hit states like Nebraska. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in October predicted an “enhanced chance” of below normal precipitation for the middle section of the country this winter. Soil moisture helps insulate plant roots from killing freezes and protect a crop from fierce winds that can topple weak stands. Just how much rain and snow are required to recharge soil moisture levels to adequate and surplus levels varies widely across the country, but some generalizations can be made. About 250 mm of additional precipitation is needed in Minnesota and northern Wyoming, while 250 to 400 mm is needed in parts of Oklahoma and Arkansas, according to QT Information Services, which tracks climate data. Conditions in the eastern corn belt have improved recently, thanks to heavy storm systems through Illinois and parts of Iowa and Missouri, though much more will be needed. Crops in these regions have the advantage of time because they aren’t planted until spring. The Plains and areas west will need much more than normal. “Conditions are about as bad as they’ve ever been,” said Brian Fuchs, a climatologist with the National Drought Mitigation Center. “The impact of the drought and the dryness … is far from being replenished.” Though many farm states are suffering, Nebraska is in particularly poor shape. An estimated 78 percent of the state is now plagued by

exceptional drought, the worst level measured by state and federal climatologists. In some areas of Nebraska, 91 percent of the topsoil is considered very short to short of moisture, which compares to a five-year average of 27 percent. All-important subsoil moisture levels are 97 percent short to very short, compared to an average of 29 percent, according to the state agriculture department. “We are in a real dire situation,” said Nebraska farmer Larry Flohr, who

along with his son planted 4,000 acres of winter wheat in early September. Under normal conditions, the new winter wheat crop should already be well established with strong roots to prepare for winter, but for farmers like Flohr, the wheat has just now emerged following recent snowfall across the bone-dry land. In Nebraska, 74 percent of the new winter wheat crop has emerged overall, well behind the 91 percent fiveyear average pace for emergence. Nebraska’s wheat is rated 49 percent



poor to very poor by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. South Dakota is another state suffering from drought. The wheat crop there is 23 percent emerged, compared to the average pace of 88 percent. South Dakota’s crop is rated 61 percent poor to very poor. Overall, the U.S. winter wheat crop is rated 15 percent poor to very poor, 45 percent fair and 40 percent good to excellent. It would take at least 230 mm of

additional precipitation in Nebraska over and above normal levels that range from 500 to 1,300 mm, depending on the area, to bring soil moisture levels back to near normal, according to climate experts in the state. “The winter is the dry season, after all, for the High Plains. A couple of big winter snowstorms might dent the drought, but it is highly unlikely that we will see drought eradication by spring,” said Brad Rippey, a USDA meteorologist.





Laos dam sparks downstream agricultural fears Environmental issues | Countries along the Mekong River are worried about impact on rice land and fish habitat XAYABURI, Laos (Reuters) — Laos has held a groundbreaking ceremony for a $3.5 billion hydropower dam on the Mekong River that is opposed by environmentalists and neighbouring countries because of the possible impact on livelihoods, fisheries and agriculture. “We had the opportunity to listen to the views and opinions of different countries along the river. We have come to an agreement and chose today to be the first day to begin the project,” deputy prime minister Somsavat Lengsavad said at the site. The country has ambitions to become the Battery of Southeast Asia through power exports from dams across the 4,900 kilometre Mekong. However, after pressure from neighbours, it agreed to suspend the Xayaburi dam last December, pending a study led by Japan. “Laos has made a misleading statement by saying it has already addressed environmental concerns, in an attempt to get support from the other governments. The studies that have been conducted are not yet finished,” said Kirk Herbertson,

Nov. 7 after 29 European and Asian states, among them critics of the dam, held a summit meeting in Laos’s capital, Vientiane. Thai construction giant Ch Karnchang Pcl has been carrying out what it called preliminary work for nearly two years, with Lao officials repeatedly playing down the extent of the work. The dam had been scheduled to be built by 2019. A Reuters journalist at the site said substantial construction had taken place, including access roads and work on the riverbanks, but nothing appeared to have been built on the river. Herbertson said International Rivers had visited the site in June and noted work involving digging into the riverbed. “The groundbreaking ceremony would be the start of building the first structure on the river, so this would be the beginning of blocking the river including fish and nutrients flowing down the river,” he said. Prime minister Thongsing Thammavong said the plans were still under study and that the Nov. 7 event was simply an organized visit for journalists and scientists. However, a banner at the site described it as a groundbreaking ceremony. Ecologists warn the livelihoods of 60 million people in the lower Mekong region, mainly in Cambodia and Vietnam, would be at risk if the dam went ahead because the design could block migratory routes of fish and deprive swathes of rice land of fertile silt. They say environmental impact assessments by Laos were inadequate and meant to appease international critics, including the United States. In Finland, at the urging of environmental groups, a government committee is looking into whether engineering firm Poyry followed international guidelines in work on the dam, said Antti Riivari, a director at the employment and the econo-

my ministry. Activists say the company gave misleading information about the dam’s potential impact in a report. They also say there is a conflict of interest because it is doing engineering work on the project. “Laos is playing roulette with the Mekong River, offering unproven solutions and opening up the Mekong as a testing ground for new technologies,” said Pianporn Deetes, Thailand campaign co-ordinator for International Rivers. Mekong basin countries, which include Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, are bound by a treaty to hold inter-governmental consultations before building dams. However, none has veto powers, and Laos is within its rights to proceed with Xayaburi, the first of 11 hydropower dams planned in the lower Mekong that are expected to generate eight percent of Southeast Asia’s power by 2025. Thailand, another country affected by the dam, has refrained from criticizing Laos. It will buy 95 percent of the power generated by the facility. Ch Karnchang, Thailand’s secondbiggest building contractor, has a 57 percent share in the project. Stateowned Thai energy giant PTT Pcl has 25 percent and state-run Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand 12.5 percent. Ch Karnchang chief executive officer Plew Trivisvavet defended the project. “If this (would) badly affect the environment, we wouldn’t do it. This company wouldn’t do it. This is the company’s strongest policy,” he said.





Saskatchewan changes tax status for three property types Taxed on full value | Grain elevators, rail rights of way and pipelines will see 2013 assessment raised from 75 percent to 100 percent BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

The full value of grain elevators, railway rights of way and pipelines will be used to calculate taxable assessments for those properties in 2013, the Saskatchewan government announced last week. The percentage of value will rise from 75 percent to 100 percent. It had been 75 percent for the three types of property within the commercial-industrial class since a new reassessment system was implemented in the 1990s. All other property classes remain the

same: range or pasture land, 40 percent; cultivated land, 55 percent; residential and seasonal, 70 percent; and commercial-industrial, 100 percent. Government relations minister Jim Reiter said increasing the percentage of value for the three property types will level the playing field within the commercial and industrial class. He said it wouldn’t necessarily mean taxes will go up on those properties. “Right now percentages of value have to be set so municipalities can start doing their work on deciding what they want to do for tax tools (and) setting appropriate mill rates

If you’re going to have a time to level the playing field, this is probably an appropriate time. JIM REITER GOVERNMENT RELATIONS MINISTER

for budgeting purposes,” he said in an interview. Properties are revalued every four years, by law, and 2013 is a revaluation year.

Reiter said it makes sense to change the percentage of value now for that reason and also because other commercial properties generally went up in value at a higher rate than these three. “If you’re going to have a time to level the playing field, this is probably an appropriate time,” he said. The overall tax bill is also affected by the education property tax rate, a provincial rate that the province will announce on budget day in March, Reiter said. Separating properties within the commercial/industrial class into two classes will alleviate expected significant education property tax shifts.

The percentages of value were implemented to help mitigate tax shifts when the valuation system was changed in the 1990s from a 1960s model. The province sets the percentage of value, while appraisers value the properties. Both figures are used to calculate the taxable assessment, which is then multiplied by a local mill rate for the municipal tax portion and the provincial rate for the education tax. Saskatchewan property values have risen to $97 billion from $58 billion in 2009, according to the province.

Breasts get squeezed by chicken wing craze Prices to rise | Once a byproduct, now a best seller CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — Chicken wings, those heavily seasoned tidbits served in sports bars and at-home football parties, are giving the chicken industry a lot to crow about. Sales have largely weathered a recession and a doubling of prices. Industry forecasters also predict continued strong demand because sports fans will nosh on wings at sports bars from now through the National Football League’s 2013 Super Bowl in February and college basketball’s March Madness.

Pilgrim’s Pride Corp., the second largest chicken producer in the United States, recently reported a betterthan-expected quarterly profit, in part because of the nearly $1 per pound increase in wing prices from a year earlier. Breast meat, the industry’s top revenue producer, only increased 20 cents. Analysts expect Tyson Foods Inc. and Sanderson Farms Inc. to post better-than-year ago profits later this fall. The main reason for higher prices is reduced supply because high feed prices have forced the industry to decrease production. Pilgrim’s Pride expects U.S. chicken production to be down two to three percent next year from 2012. While wing prices are expected to increase in coming months and there will be fewer of them, analysts doubt demand will greatly suffer at restaurants and bars. “Wings are relatively inelastic. People want to eat them, they are not so concerned about price,” said Paul Aho, an economist with the consulting firm Poultry Perspective. Wings are also fairly inexpensive when compared with beef, pork and chicken breast meat, which has kept demand strong despite the recession and high gasoline prices. “Even if you lost your job, lost your house, I still think you would still want a beer and wings,” said Aho. Demand has escalated ever since the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York, served up a batch of spicy wings in 1964 to launch this food craze, gradually at first and then booming in the 1990s and 2000s. Once an industry byproduct, wings are now the chicken industry’s second largest seller behind breast meat. They account for 25 percent of the industry’s revenue, up from 17 percent eight years ago. Breast meat is 37 percent, down from 53 percent eight years ago. “It is all supply driven,” Mike Cockrell, Sanderson Farms’ chief financial officer, said of the higher wing prices. “Demand (for wings) has remained surprisingly good.” Sanderson Farms said it is operating at 94 percent of capacity and will probably stay there until conditions improve. Feed, which is primarily corn and soybean meal, is the largest cost of production, and prices have soared to record highs this year because of the worst drought in half a century. Corn topped $8.40 US a bushel and soybean meal surpassed $550 per ton. A year earlier, corn was $7.50 and soymeal $380. “The full brunt of this high-priced grain will hit us in October, November and December,” said Cockrell. “From what we hear, everybody has cut back.” U.S. chicken production in September was down 12 percent from August and down eight percent from a year earlier, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Buffalo Wild Wings, one of the largest wing-serving restaurant chains in the country with weekly sales of 21 million, recently reported a 25 percent increase in revenue for the quarter that ended in late September.




U.S. farm bill delays likely Bill directs government supports and food aid MILWAUKEE, Wis. (Reuters) — The U.S. Congress could delay passage of a new five-year farm bill until spring planting, says a top farm policy expert. Barry Flinchbaugh, a Kansas State University agricultural economist who advises legislators on shaping U.S. farm bills, said Congress will have a full plate of legislation to deal with to avoid a fiscal cliff with mandatory U.S. budget cuts. “My prediction is that we will get a farm bill by April 2013. It will look very close to the Senate version,” Flinchbaugh said. The farm bill is the master legislation that directs government supports and food aid programs. The divided Congress, squabbling over political issues, adjourned in September without passing a new bill before the old one expired Oct. 1. That fed more anger in U.S. farm country against partisans in Congress. American farmers are still reeling from the worst drought in half a century. Hardest hit by the drought were livestock producers and dairy farmers who lack the crop insurance that grain belt farmers enjoy and continue to be squeezed by soaring costs to feed their animals. The Democrat-controlled Senate passed its version of the bill in June, which would replace traditional crop subsidies with an insurance-like program and cut food aid for the poor by $4 billion. The Republican-controlled House of Representatives splintered over demands by some conservatives to cut food stamps and farm programs even more. Food stamp cuts would account for $16 billion of the $35 billion in savings proposed by the House agriculture committee. The Senate package would save $23 billion with crop subsidies providing half of the cuts. Since the 2008 farm bill expired Oct. 1, government supports have been operating under the 1938 Agricultural Adjustment Act (AAA) passed during Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal programs. The AAA brought back the concept of “price parity” from the 1900s and led to sharply higher guaranteed crop prices, Flinchbaugh said. Most policy farm analysts expect Congress to extend the 2008 farm bill if it can’t pass the new bill by Dec. 31. However, Flinchbaugh said Congress can do what it wants. It didn’t extend the earlier legislation in 1995 and 1996, he added. Flinchbaugh believes it will not be as easy now to pass an extension because of how farm bills are funded. “If they try a one-year extension, I don’t know where they are going to get the money,” he said. “They might do a 30-day extension or 60-day extension until they get the new one.” However, the farm bill is the minor issue compared to the fiscal cliff the country is facing, Flinchbaugh said. Under a contentious budget compromise in 2011 that neither side liked, Republicans and Democrats locked themselves into massive mandatory budget cuts and tax increases in January 2013.

Possible penalties | ADM conducts internal review CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — Archer Daniels Midland, one of the world’s top grain traders, said it is negotiating with the U.S. government to resolve possible violations of U.S. foreign bribery laws and could face penalties. ADM said in a quarterly report filed on Nov. 5 that it “initiated discussions” with the U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission after completing an internal review of questionable transactions relating to grain and feed exports. The transactions may have violated the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other U.S. and foreign laws, according to the company. The justice department and SEC declined comment. ADM said it began an internal review of the transactions in August 2008. It

voluntarily disclosed the review to the U.S. government and “certain foreign regulators” in March 2009, and has provided periodic updates to the agencies, according to the filing. ADM declined to provide additional details on the possible violations, but said in a statement that it had terminated employees as a result of the review. “As soon as we became aware of some questionable transactions, ADM undertook a comprehensive internal investigation and retained an independent auditing firm to conduct its own review,” a spokeswoman said in the statement. ADMcouldfacecivilandcriminalfines from the potential violations and be forced to give up profits “derived from any contracts involving inappropriate payments,” according to the filing.

Her last permanent relationship was 2 years ago. She is now seriously looking to meet a decent guy. She loves to cook and enjoys a glass of wine. She would love to be taken out to dinner, or can cook for him, just the two of them is important to her. Connieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family is important to her. She would like him to be close to his family also. Age is irrelevant, he could be 20 years older than her or 5 years younger. If he has children thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ok.

Health care system absorbs added costs

Farm workers carry out many duties on farms across Alberta and are not covered by the province’s worker protection programs. |



Farm labour standards said lacking Food companies are under pressure to refuse products from farms without ethical labour standards STORIES BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

An Alberta Liberal MLA continues to encourage food companies to consider the province’s lack of farm worker protection when choosing suppliers. Dr. David Swann made headlines earlier this year when he urged PepsiCo Frito Lay, a major purchaser of Alberta potatoes, to stop buying from farms in Alberta because there is no legislative requirement for Workers Compensation Board insurance for farm workers and farms aren’t subject to occupational health and safety rules or laws prohibiting child labour. Swann said Nov. 6 that he has also sent letters to McDonald’s and Yum Foods, pointing out that their policies on ethical procurement are contradictory to their purchase of Alberta farm produce. “They’re in a conflict,” said Swann. “They want to appear to be ethical corporations, but when challenged, they have not indicated that they would change their buying patterns.” The accusation of child labour on Alberta farms was particularly controversial when Swann raised it in August. Since then, he said a PepsiCo Frito Lay lawyer has called to assure him that Alberta potato growers know about the company’s prohibition on child labour. “They are trying to sweep it aside, I’m afraid,” said Swann. “I intend to contact by phone representatives of McDonald’s and Yum Foods and just confirm they got the letter and then talk about whether they’re prepared to change their website or if they’re considering changing their suppliers of produce in Alberta to ethical employers.” But Alberta Potato Growers executive director Helmut Leili said Swann has no verifiable data for accusations that Alberta potato

The Farmworkers Union of Alberta wants to make Workers Compensation Board insurance a requirement for employers of agricultural workers.

The labour standards in Alberta are incongruent with the corporations’ publicly stated ethical procurement policies because we have no child labour standards and because we have no health and safety standards, and other labour standard exclusions. ERIC MUSEKAMP FARMWORKERS UNION OF ALBERTA

growers use child labour. Most of them also voluntarily provide WCB coverage to all their workers. “He has never ever ever provided any statistics,” said Leili about Swann’s assertions. “We follow rules and regulations set by the government and we work very aggressively with the provincial government whenever something does come up that we need addressing.” Leili said Frito Lay has expressed its confidence in Alberta growers’ practices, and worker safety is not a problem. “In fact, workers compensation claims and costs have been going

way down in our sector. It’s because there’s been no claims.” PepsiCo’s Global Code of Conduct reads, in part, that the company will operate under policies that provide fair and equitable wages, benefits and other conditions of employment and that prohibit forced or child labour. Eric Musekamp, president of the Farmworkers Union of Alberta, said he supports Swann’s efforts to bring farm worker risks to the attention of food companies. “The labour standards in Alberta are incongruent with the corporations’ publicly stated ethical procurement policies because we have no child labor standards and because we have no health and safety standards, and other labour standard exclusions,” said Musekamp. Swann acknowledged his quest has potential to damage farmers’ incomes if successful. “I do not want to harm them. What I want them to do is to add their pressure to protect their own interests and press this government to bring in legislation to ensure that everyone is on that level playing field.” He said his target is “non-family farms,” those that employ people outside the family, off-site or otherwise. He also said he doesn’t intend

to add expense to farmers. The government has suggested in the past that requiring WCB coverage and subjecting farms to occupational health and safety standards would impose additional costs and restrictions that they might not be able to bear. However, Musekamp said costs would not be prohibitive for large agricultural operations. “I don’t buy the argument that these industries are so marginal that a three percent levy on their wages would put them out of business. But I can tell you certainly that the lawsuits will put them out of business. We’ve seen that.” Musekamp argued that WCB coverage is the only mechanism available to farm operations to protect them from litigation. Earlier this month, Lorna Chandler, whose husband, Kevan, was killed in a grain elevator in 2006, received compensation after six years of effort. The amount was not disclosed. Musekamp contends Chandler would not have died had his employer been subject to occupational health and safety standards and even if he had, WCB coverage would have eliminated the need for litigation.

Alberta’s lack of labour regulations for farm workers costs the provincial health-care system at least $4.5 million annually, according to recent figures tabled in the legislature. Alberta Liberal MLA David Swann presented figures compiled by Bob Barnetson, a professor at the Centre for Work and Community Studies at Athabasca University. “We lack the information we need to have a handle on just how much is being transferred from these industrial (farm) operations to the public purse,” said Swann in a Nov. 6 interview. However, he said he considers $4.5 million to be the minimum costs incurred because Alberta farm workers are not covered by occupational health and safety regulations and participation in Workers Compensation Board insurance is voluntary. “We know the health system is overwhelmed with demand. Why the ministers involved wouldn’t see the opportunity here to download some of the costs and some of the services to the Workers Compensation Board through a simple act of legislating it, is really a mystery.” Barnetson generated his cost estimates at the request of the Farmworkers Union of Alberta. “That’s a pretty low ball number, but it kind of gives at least an indication that there’s some sort of scope to this,” said FUA president Eric Musekamp. “I’m not sure exactly what kind of reaction we’re going to get.” In an email provided by FUA, Barnetson said medical costs related to agricultural injuries are difficult to calculate because there is little data. He considers the $4.5 million figure to be a rough estimate. WCB data lists 2,825 workers on 1,300 farming operations that are covered by workers compensation in Alberta. By dividing WCB claims made by those workers into medical aid costs, he arrived at an average of $80.35 per worker. That number was multiplied by the number of farm workers in the province, which Barnetson estimated at 60,000. He deducted WCB payouts from those with coverage to arrive at $4.5 million as the cost of farm workplace injuries covered by Alberta Health. Craig Loewen, spokesperson for Alberta human services minister Dave Hancock, said the government continues to study the farm worker protection issue. “There’s obviously nothing on the fall agenda. Both the ministers of human services and of agriculture and rural development are looking at the issue, though.” Musekamp said he met with government officials last week in Edmonton and spoke with premier Alison Redford last month. He remains optimistic about eventual government action. Swann is less certain. “They talk a lot. They currently indicate they are studying the issues and this has, of course, been going on for at least a decade. They’ve been feeling some pressure about the lack of respect for farm workers and the lack of legislation that would protect their health and safety.”





Open market poses challenges for independents Relationships important | With less CWB grain volume, alliances with large grain handlers are key to success BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

However, members of the Inland Terminals Association of Canada say the learning curve has been steep for farmer owned terminals operating in the new marketing environment. “It’s been an interesting time for all of us, to say the least,” said Shawn Graham, general manger of the Gardiner Dam Terminal Joint Venture at Strongfield, Sask. “Obviously, the transition from the wheat board to the CWB open market … and balancing the two types of business back and forth has been an interesting time for all of us.” Chad Campbell, chief executive officer of Prairie West Terminal at Plenty, Sask., also cites challenges. “With the exit of the CWB single desk monopoly … we’ve seen some monumental changes to our business, in terms of grain handling, grading, marketing, accounting, rail car logistics and car allocations, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.….” CWB grain is expected to account for a smaller percentage of grain delivered to farmer-owned terminals under the new marketing environment. With fewer tonnes assured through the CWB and more exported by the private sector, ITAC members say it will be more critical than ever to

was CWB grain, Koshman said. This year, all bets are off. Wayne Hittel, chair of the Great Sandhills Terminal at Leader, Sask., said it remains to be seen how overall volumes at ITAC terminals will be affected. However, based on early indications, total volumes should not vary significantly from past years. According to its website, ITAC’s members handle 2.5 million tonnes of grain, oilseeds and pulse crops a year and control grain handling

assets with a replacement value of $370 million. “I think we’re like the rest of the industry,” said Hittel, who also serves as chair of Great Sandhills Terminal. “We’re getting our feet wet and we’ve definitely formed some alliances with each other and with bigger groups to make sure that we continue to have access to the world, not just through the CWB but with (others as well).” Hittel said deliveries at some ITAC terminals started out slowly but

picked up in September and October. “Deliveries off the start were a bit slow because farmers weren’t sure (about the new market) and some terminals weren’t sure what to take into their facilities,” he said. “In the old days, if you took a little bit of (grain and didn’t move it immediately), you’d get storage for it and it wasn’t that big of an issue because you’d still be getting some revenue.… Now you can’t do that. It’s the age of in-the-door and out-the-door, so you go at it a bit more cautiously.” Although the proof will be in the pudding, Hittel said ITAC members are cautiously optimistic about overall tonnage in 2012-13. “I wouldn’t say (volumes are likely to) increase, but I would hope that we’re going to hold our own,” he said. The decision by some farmerowned terminals to buy a stake in the Alliance Grain Terminal in Vancouver will provide an extra level of assurance when it comes to accessing global grain markets, Hittel added. Alliance is a 100,000 tonne export facility owned by Prairie West Terminal, Weyburn Inland Terminal, Great Sandhills Terminal, North West Terminal in Unity, Sask., Paterson Global Foods and Parrish & Heimbecker. Rob Davies, general manager of the Weyburn Inland Terminal, said independent terminals have been forced to evolve quickly in the new environment. “Our industry has seen a year of tremendous evolution with the movement away from the wheat board,” said Davies. “I think probably that most people in the industry thought they were better prepared than they were, most likely, and when we got into it a month or two … we realized that there were … lots of little things that needed to be dealt with.” Improved rail regulations will be another key to ensuring a strong grain handling industry, he added. “As an industry, we’ve been waiting a long time for some balance in rail service.”





Europe’s first durum wheat futures launched ROME (Reuters) — Borsa Italiana is set to launch Europe’s first futures market for durum wheat to cater to demand from the continent’s Italian-led pasta makers, but building sufficient trading volumes will be a challenge, traders say. Grain futures generally take a long time to attract a large trading base, and the minimal volumes seen since the launch of durum futures in Canada at the start of the year have highlighted the difficulties in the niche grain market. Milan’s exchange and pasta maker Barilla, which advised the exchange on the launch of the futures market, said the financial tool may be more effective in Italy, the world’s largest producer and per-capita consumer of pasta made from durum. “The Mediterranean is an area of consumption of durum wheat, and it makes more sense to have a market with physical delivery where the grain is consumed,” said Ennio Arlandi of Borsa Italiana. The new AGREX futures are due to launch around Nov. 19 on the Italian Derivatives Exchange Market (IDEM) and will trade in 50 tonne contracts, with five maturities available at any one time. The delivery months will be March, May, September and December. WHEAT IMPORTS

Drought slashes grain crops MOSCOW/ALMATY, Kazakhstan (Reuters) — Russia’s miller’s union has asked the government to ease conditions for importing wheat from Kazakhstan and rye from Germany this spring to cover a shortage after drought slashed grain crops. Russia, historically the world’s number three global exporter, was hit by hot and dry weather this year, which slashed its wheat harvest by a third. Its exportable surplus has already been exhausted. “It would be appropriate to think in advance about creating attractive conditions for milling wheat imports to Russia (mainly from Kazakhstan) and for rye imports from Germany, which has a good harvest this year,” the union said in a letter to deputy prime minister Arkady Dvorkovich, who oversees the farm sector. Russia has just completed its harvest, and milling wheat and rye are likely to run short this spring, the lobby said in the letter. In good harvest years, such as 2011-12, Russia imports about one million tonnes of grain a year, mainly wheat from Kazakhstan for its border regions in the Urals and Siberia, as well as some top quality milling wheat that Russia cannot supply. In the current 2012-13 marketing season, which started on July 1, Russia may import two million tonnes of grain this year, the chief executive officer of SovEcon agricultural analysts Andrei Sizov said. AGFINANCE

Deutsche Bank eyes Australian windfall MELBOURNE, Australia (Reuters) — Deutsche Bank has built a 5.2 percent stake in Australian takeover target GrainCorp in recent months, a

move that could pay off handsomely as the target’s shares have soared and could climb higher if rival bids appear. American agriculture giant Archer Daniels Midland bid $2.8 billion for GrainCorp last week, sending shares in Australia’s last remaining independent grains handler soaring to record highs. Australian Stock Exchange filings show Deutsche Bank acquired a 5.2 percent stake in GrainCorp through a range of funds and units since June, suggesting the purchases were for investment for clients rather than on behalf of a rival bidder. Many analysts have argued the Archer Daniels’ bid, even at a 33 percent premium to its pre-offer price, undervalues GrainCorp based on past deals and expect either

a sweetened offer from ADM or another suitor to emerge. Many in the U.S. banking industry expect Bunge and Cargill to explore submitting rival bids. AGFINANCE

On the takeover list (Reuters) — With its grain silos and ethanol plants dotting the U.S. Midwest, The Andersons may be the next takeover target for global companies. The diversified agricultural company may also be a bargain, say analysts and investors, as nearsighted shareholders punish it for the worst U.S. drought in 50 years, overlooking the long-term value of its assets.

The Andersons, built over 65 years from a small family-run trucking firm outside Toledo, Ohio, into the seventh-largest storer of U.S. grain, is perhaps the last, best chance for a global trader such as Glencore or Cargill Inc. to boost their U.S. position in a single swoop. The opportunity expanded recently when The Andersons said it would buy 12 grain elevators in Iowa and Tennessee, boosting its storage capacity by 30 percent. On paper it seems a prime target, offering a combination of hard assets and logistics expertise, including nearly 140 million bushels of storage space once the latest deal closes. The Andersons also operates four ethanol plants and more than 23,000 railcars to ship grain.


CME maintains trading hours CHICAGO (Reuters) — CME Group Inc. plans to maintain the nearly round-the-clock electronic grain-trading that it implemented in May despite criticism by traders that the new format is hurting market liquidity. The exchange expanded the grain trading session to fend off a challenge from rival IntercontinentalExchange. Grain traders have circulated a petition calling on CME, owner of the Chicago Board of Trade, to reduce its 21 hour trading day. Until May, CME grains traded for 17 hours a day.

Canpotex gets OK for port terminal OTTAWA (Reuters) — Canpotex has received government approval to build a new export terminal at the port of Prince Rupert. Federal environment minister Peter Kent said in a statement the terminal was not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects. Canpotex, the offshore selling agency for potash mined in Saskatchewan, will work on the terminal project with Canadian National Railway, which hauls some of the agency’s potash on its southern British Columbia line. Canpotex sells potash on behalf of Agrium Inc., Potash Corp and Mosaic Co. in key markets such as China and India.

Panama trade deal nears final approval Agriculture benefits | Deal eliminates tariffs on french fries, pulses, malt barley and beef products BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

More than two years after the agreement was signed, the House of Commons has approved a trade deal with Panama, sending the bill to the Senate for final approval. With the New Democratic Party, Bloc Québecois and Green Party leader Elizabeth May voting against it, the bill was approved Nov. 7 by a vote of 171 to 90. Although Panama is not a large market for Canadian agricultural products, export-oriented agricultural groups have supported the deal, first signed in August 2009 and introduced to Parliament in 2010.

It has been opposed by the NDP because of Panama’s record on labour rights, environmental protection and its status as an off shore haven for tax evasion. On Nov. 7 in the final Commons debate before the vote, Alberta Conservative MP Rob Merrifield and international trade committee chair said agriculture will be a major beneficiary of the trade deal. He said ratification of the deal will eliminate a 20 percent tariff on frozen french fries from Canada, a 15 percent tariff on pulse imports, a 10 percent tariff on malt barley and a tariff as high as 30 percent on beef products. During debate, Conservative MPs

argued that with a recent free trade deal between Panama and the United States and a pending deal with the European Union, Canada risks losing out on a growing market if the legislation is not passed and the deal is not sealed. Merrifield said the NDP, by opposing the bill, has led to a delay in capitalizing on a growing market. After many hours of debate, the Conservative government got the bill through the House of Commons by imposing a time limit on the debate. “There has been two and a half years of wasted time and opportunity for us to be able to capitalize on the great infrastructure of the Panama Canal as well as the opportunities for


North Dakota law designed to protect agriculture sector BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

North Dakotans have voted for a law that protects the state’s agricultural industry from activist groups like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. On Nov. 6, 67 percent of voters supported Measure 3, an amendment to the state’s constitution barring new laws that “abridge the right of farmers and ranchers to employ agricultural technology, modern livestock production and ranching practices.” The North Dakota Farm Bureau sponsored the measure because organizations like the Humane Society of the United States have successfully introduced legislation on farming practices in other states, such as California. “Their long-term goal is to make everyone a vegetarian or a vegan and try to shut down meat consumption,” Jeff Missling, North Dakota Farm Bureau executive vice-president, told The Western Producer this summer. “They’re going about it incrementally by… trying to attack our animal agricultural industry.” Missling said agricultural leaders in several other states have inquired about the so-called “right to farm” measure, so the North Dakota approach may become a template for other jurisdictions.

our agriculture sector and many others,” said Merrifield, who farms 3,000 acres of grain and oilseeds in central Alberta. New Democrat MP Annick Papillon said her party sees “problems” with the Canada-Panama trade deal. She denied Conservative accusation that the NDP is anti-trade. “”We like to choose our partners,” she said. “It just does not make sense to me that the Conservative government is signing free trade agreements with just about anyone, as if Canada was up for grabs.” She said trading with Panama raises “serious concerns” because of its record on human and labour rights as well as the environment.

North Dakotans also voted on another measure connected to the Humane Society on election day. Animal welfare advocates in the state had sponsored Measure 5, which would have made it a felony for any individual to “maliciously and intentionally burn, poison, crush, suffocate, impale, drown, blind, skin, beat to death, drag to death, exsanguinate, disembowel, or dismember any living dog, cat, or horse.” North Dakota is one of two states in America, along with South Dakota, that treats extreme acts of animal cruelty as a misdemeanor offense, but 65 percent of voters in the state rejected the measure. Agriculture groups, including the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association, opposed the changes to the state’s animal cruelty regulations. On their website the Stockmen said the law wouldn’t protect animals and it was funded by the Humane Society of the United States, “an out of state animal rights group known for its anti-agriculture agenda.” “If you look at the ballot language it only addresses three species of animals – dogs, cats and horses,” said Julie Ellingson, executive vicepresident of the Stockmen’s Association. “We really think a proper care and treatment law should be something that is applicable across all species.”

New depth controls help stay the course CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: The wand skims the surface, giving real-time data to the Active Depth Control computer. If the wand starts to slide into the soil, the ADC computer knows the rotating discs are too deep and raises the boom. If the wand is in mid-air, the discs are cutting the tips of the beets, so the ADC lowers the boom. |

Active Depth Control | Might the depth control system from a beet harvester show up on your next air drill? BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU


FARGO, N.D. — A new automatic depth control system keeps extra mud from going through the processor during sugar beet harvesting while ensuring the high-value beet tips get into the truck. While other automatic depth control systems function only on the hitch cylinders at the front of the harvester, the new Active Depth Control (ADC) from Amity Technology in Fargo also controls the two rear axle hydraulic cylinders to equalize the digging depth across the machine. Boom depth is critically important to the beet grower. If the rotating discs run too deep in the soil, they bring up extra soil that the harvester must handle. Not only does that consume more fuel and put extra stress on the machine, but it also puts dirt into the truck, exporting it from the field. If the boom is running too shallow, it slices off the bottom tip of the beet, which contains the highest concentration of sugar. Booms on sugar beet harvesters now reach 12 rows for an operating width of 31 feet. If the left side of that boom starts to dig too deep into the mud, the right side goes up. As well, the weight dynamics of a beet har vester are continually changing as field conditions or tank or boom loads change. It all happens in fractions of a second and is too fast for a human to keep up with. With the ADC, the operator still has to decide what depth he wants to run the discs. That adjustment can change throughout the field: a spot with bigger beets requires the boom to go deeper while a spot with smaller beets requires the boom to run shallower. Once the operator has made that initial determination and manually set the depth, the ADC does the rest and maintains the boom at that depth. Further depth changes are

The hydraulic valve block takes instructions from the ADC monitor, raising or lowering the boom that holds the rotating discs. The two rear axle cylinders are independent, giving the ADC the ability to quickly level the boom. | APPAREO SYSTEMS PHOTO The ADC monitor was developed primarily for sugar beet harvesters, but the technology can easily transfer to air drills and fertilizer applicators. | RON LYSENG PHOTO manually made by the operator as harvest conditions change, and the ADC follows its new instructions. The challenge is to control the depth of a tool that’s working below the surface where it can’t be seen, said Joe Heilman, OEM product manager for Appareo Systems in Fargo, which builds the ADC for Amity. Heilman said it’s not possible to measure the depth of a subterranean working tool with radar or sonar. “But if we can use a sensor or a wand of some sort that skims along the surface at a known distance above the rotating disc, we have all the information we need to control the hydraulics,” Heilman said. “If the wand drops below surface level, then we know the rotating discs are running too deep. They’re hauling up lots of soil, using too much fuel and slowing us down. “If the wand floats along above the

surface, we know the disc is too close to the surface and it’s cutting tips. We’re losing money. ” Heilman said the wands look like steel skis with a significant curve at the front so that they skim the soil without digging themselves in. Each boom has a wand at the left side and right side. The two sensors are mounted to the har vester frame. They are programmed to determine disc depth according to the angle of the wands. If one side or both sides of the boom need adjustment, that information is sent to the monitor. The monitor then instructs the hydraulic valve block to make adjustments to the hitch cylinders and the rear axle cylinders, thus bringing the boom and rotating discs back to the desired depth. Chris Giese of Appareo said Amity engineers did the initial design work on the ADC and then turned the proj-

ect over to Appareo for production. “The smarts of the whole system are in this control box. It sends instant information from the sensors to the box, then to the hydraulic valve block, then to the hydraulic cylinders,” he said. “The system accounts for any type of depth control issues you’d ever find in a field: drainage ditches, rough ground, soft soil, hill tops. It’s designed so the operator can put depth control to the back of his mind and focus his attention on the truck running beside him, along with all the other tasks.” Giese said the ADC sends all information to the screen in the cab so that the operator is always aware of what the boom is doing and what the ADC is up to. “There are multiple applications for this technology. Potato harvest is the obvious one,” Heilman said. “But it could give very precise control on

your air drills and fertilizer application equipment. On those really big 100 foot drills, you could control each section independently. On the precision drills, you could easily put a sensor on each seeding tool.” Heilman said sugar beet growers are trading in their current harvesters for the new ADC machines. The inventory of used non-ADC Amity machines is bad for dealers, he added, because Amity has 80 percent of the North American market for sugar beet harvesters. “This creates somewhat of a problem. The dealers are getting so many trades, and nobody wants a harvester that doesn’t have ADC.” To address the problem, Amity is working on a retrofit kit for older Amity harvesters. Heilman said the kit will likely involve major changes to the older hydraulics. For more information, visit www.

Auger Hog has big appetite for grain Moving grain | Is your auger working below peak efficiency because of the hopper? BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

A new detachable hopper manufactured in Swift Current, Sask., is said to increase auger speed by 20 to 30 percent. The big Auger Hog is designed and built by Gatco Manufacturing, which has also developed the Grain Air Tube. “I’m a farmer myself and I needed a high volume hopper to go under trucks and hopper bottom bins,” said Gatco owner Gary Schreiner. “There are other detachable hoppers on the market, but there isn’t one I know of that’s suitable for today’s big new augers and hopper bins. So I built one. “We’ve managed to increase auger speed by 20 to 30 percent, eliminate overflow and spilling. And it prevents product from blowing away while you’re augering. It keeps everything contained in the shroud.” Schreiner said the key component is the canvas shrouding that surrounds and encloses the gap between the auger bucket and the chute. The canvas height adjusts from 14

to 31 inches, but Schreiner said he is working out a way for the minimum height to be lower than 14 inches. “The front of the hopper is adjustable. The back comes up to where you want it with just a push on the handle,”

he said.“There’s a hitch inside with just a single pin to hold the Auger Hog and the auger together.” The hopper works on augers from eight to 13 inches. Schreiner said Gatco has sold 100 units.

He said the feedback has been positive. “Guys have found that it allows them to properly use their grain vacs to work under hopper bottom bins. They can leave the chute open and it

Organic researcher makes his mark ORGANIC MATTERS


Martin Entz honoured by prairie organic community


Researcher Martin Entz examines the fababean plants knocked down by an invention that allows cover crops to be put down and killed, but left on the surface of the soil and not tilled. | FILE PHOTO

Only LEON Contoured Blades ‘Roll the Load’ Ahead!

rganic Connections honoured Martin Entz, University of Manitoba professor of cropping systems and agronomy, for his contribution to the organic community at its November conference in Regina. Entz joined other people who have been previously named Organic Heroes and placed on the Organic Connections Wall of Fame. In 1992, Entz began a long-term rotation study in Glenlea, Man. It is the oldest organic-conventional cropping system comparison in Canada. It includes rotations with forage, green manure and grain. It resulted in many important findings: • Phosphorus levels decreased in plots where forage was removed. When composted manure was returned to these plots, phosphorus fertility was maintained. • Organic plots had higher levels of

mycorrhizal colonization in flax. • Yields were lower in organic plots. • Organic plots contained more weeds. • G re e n ma nu re s a n d f o ra g e legumes provided enough nitrogen to maintain grain nitrogen content. • Energy use was much higher and energy efficiency much lower in conventional plots compared to organic. • Soil erodibility did not increase under organic management. • Rotations that included hay crops had far less Canada thistle and wild oats than grain only rotations. Entz also developed the Organic Crops Field Lab in Carman, Man. At that site, he and his staff maintain a six year organic rotation that includes green manures, oilseeds, pulses and cereals. Researchers are invited to participate in phases of the rotation that aligns with their research interests. For instance, wheat breeder Stephen Fox uses the wheat plots, and oat breeder Jennifer Mitchell-Fetch uses the oat plots. The Field Lab enables researchers to undertake organic research without having to undertake the planning involved in maintaining organic conditions. When this is done for them, they can focus on their research and more easily gain valuable data on trials run on organic land. The Organic Crops Field Lab is also used as an extension and teaching site, hosting graduate student proj-

ects, field days and crop schools. Entz’s research has proven innovative and has sparked changes. After seeing green manures as critical to organic fertility and weed control, but also as a problem for its additional tillage, Entz has sought other termination options. He was the first in Canada to test Rodale’s no-till organics system of crimping green manures to terminate them. He used large tractor tires to roll over the crop before his crimper/roller was built. Entz’s research group is also testing grazing by sheep as an alternative to terminating green manures with tillage.


Entz also mentors graduate students and collaborates with them to develop their strengths and focus them on issues important to organic farmers. An indication of this success is seen in the OCIA Research and Education scholarships. These scholarships are offered to the international community and awarded by a farmer-run board. Entz’s graduate students have won the award in three of the eight years it has been offered. Organic projects undertaken by Entz’s graduate students have been varied: • suppression of weeds and diseases • tillage reduction • developing mulch systems for weed control and soil fertility • increasing crop diversity with crop mixtures • comparing green manure termination options • phosphorus fertility • reducing weed spread through chaff collection Entz is also noted for his collaborative approach. He collaborates his research efforts with other traditional researchers, and with producers. Brenda Frick, Ph.D., P.Ag. is an extension agrologist and researcher in organic agriculture.

Remote pump controls beyond cellular reach Radio remote | Broadcaster One uses digital radio signals to provide instructions and telematics data in the field BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

WOODSTOCK , Ont. — Liquid manure isn’t the nicest product with which to work and managing the pumps is time consuming. That’s why John Van Lierop felt his customers would appreciate a reliable remote pump engine controller that works in places where cellular coverage wasn’t available or consistent. “In this sort of work, you need something that you can count on, no matter what,” said Van Lierop of Sunova Worx in Lakeside, Ont. To ensure that his new Broadcaster One would work in any location under any weather conditions, Van Lierop’s engineers developed the controller around 900 megahertz, digital radio signals. “It’s a well proven system in industrial communications,” he said about the controller, which manages tractor or stationary engine and pumping technologies. The Broadcaster One is an instant control system based in radio telemetry. Because the system doesn’t use a cellular system, there are no calling plan fees, monthly licences, data costs or connection and internetbased delays. The system moves to a 20 second cool down and then shuts off if it is interrupted or the tractor, engine or pump show signs of failure or fluid loss. “It fails safe, but its main feature is saving time for operators,” he said. Running the system only when it is pumping reduces fuel use and machinery wear and ensures that that a proper shutdown protocol is followed during shutdown that allows the engine to cool off. “And, at two in the morning when you are done for the night, you don’t have to go back out to shut it off. You can do that from the truck, the office or the barn,” he said. The system starts and stops en-gine r.p.m. and measures power take-off speed, temperature, oil pressure, pump intake and output pressure.

Farmfair scouts for market opportunities Exposure produces sales | The international buyers program offers incentives to attend the Edmonton show STORIES BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

EDMONTON — They are often hard to spot in the barns, but international buyers pack an important financial punch at cattle shows. International buyers have spent more than $1.5 million since 2010, buying cattle, embryos and semen from 11 cattle breeds at Farmfair International, said Stuart Cullum, vice-president of agriculture at Northlands. “When they come to our shows, they are here to do business.” Angus breeder Dawn Wilson said international buyers are an important part of Miller Wilson, the cattle business she helps run near Bashaw, Alta. “It’s one of the markets we certainly focus on and it’s one of the reasons we come to venues like Farmfair,” she said. “You get all these international people here that you can’t necessarily get to your farm. They can see a snippet of everyone’s operation.… It’s a great way to market your cattle.” Two of Miller Wilson’s cattle won national grand champion female and national grand champion male at the National Angus Show in Mexico this year. They were both bought through Farmfair International’s international buyer program, which helps bring pre-qualified international buyers to the show and offers them up to $1,000 for travel expenses. Cullum said Farmfair screens the

He hopes to attract buyers from Kazakhstan and Russia. “There’s a great opportunity in those two countries, where they want

to increase their beef herds and they view western Canadian genetics as not only world class but very conducive to the conditions they have.” Hector Robles of Mexico is a returning buyer looking for more Canadian genetics. It was his cattle, which he bought from Miller Wilson last year, that won top prizes in the National Angus Show. Speaking through an interpreter, Robles said Angus cattle from Canada have worked well with his

breeding program. “They have worked with this breed for several years and are comfortable with this breed and like the quality of this breed,” he said. “Their goal is to cross breed the genetics he has down there with the Canadian lines. He is looking for muscle, bone and also some milk production.” Wilson said international buyers are attracted to good cattle wherever they’re from.

“Obviously, they’re successful with Canadian genetics, so that is wonderful,” she said. “Worldwide, people like good structured cattle. Sometimes they like them a little bigger, sometimes a little more moderate, but in general they’re liking the same kind,” she said. Rachael Wheeler’s visit to Farmfair is her fifth trip to Canada in the past two years, buying Canadian cattle for her family operation, Hollywood Angus, and representing other Australian cattle breeders. She said Canadian cattle are starting to get a lot of attention in Australia, especially cattle that are earlier maturing than traditional Australian breeds. Last year Wheeler bought cattle from Miller Wilson, and the newborn calves from Miller Wilson’s supreme bull and cow have started to attract attention in Australia. “They are absolutely sensational calves. They are probably the top of our drop.” Wheeler is in the process of working out semen rights on one Canadian bull and buying a “fair package” of embryos. She is also looking at buying live heifers that will stay in Canada until their embryos can be exported to Australia. “In the future, it’s something we want to build our herd on,” Wheeler said as she watched the Angus show. Her family was also watching the show in Australia through live internet streaming and comparing notes on preferred cattle.


Pride evident among Speckle Park enthusiasts EDMONTON — For Sid and Anne Hollier, importing Speckle Park cattle to England is like the return of a native son. The cattle are a combination of three breeds from England and Scotland: Shorthorn, Angus and English with the white park pattern. “To us, they’re a traditional animal. They can trace their routes to English breeds,” said Sid, who attended Farmfair International to look for more Speckle Park bloodlines for his Speckle Park herd in Dorset, England. “We can show them in England as English cattle,” said Sid, who runs 55 Speckle Park cows, all originally from herds in Saskatchewan and Alberta. The Speckle Park breed, which originated in northern Saskatchewan, has a growing popularity in England because of size and appearance, said Anne.

“They’re pretty,” she said of the speckled black and white animals with a gentle nature and kind eye. It was their looks that attracted Gary Kiziak and his family to start raising the breed. “I was interested in having a hobby. It was a hobby that got away on us,” said Kiziak, who has sold more than 2,500 Speckle Park embryos to Australia and more to New Zealand, Ireland and the United States. More than 4,000 Speckle Park embryos have been exported to Australia in recent years, making that country’s Speckle Park herd larger than the one in Canada. The breed originated in 1959 in Maidstone, Sask., and received official breed status in 2006. Visitors show up weekly at Kiziak’s Codiak Acres farm near Ardrossan, Alta., looking for embryos, semen and animals.

“We can’t produce enough genetics in this country,” said Kiziak. He said smaller producers were the original market for these cattle, but large ranches are now looking at Speckle Park to breed to their cattle. “They like their docility, thickness and carcass quality to breed back into their herd,” he said. Ken Malterer of Ponoka, Alta., said his buyers are looking at the breed because of its carcass quality. Malterer’s animals won carcass classes in Calgary in 2010 and 2011, and offspring of his animals have won carcass classes in Australia. “They have lots of marbling without a lot of back fat,” said Malterer, who first heard of Speckle Park when he bought beef from a neighbour. He liked it so much he traded hay for cattle the following year and has slowly been building his herd ever since.

Gary and Nancy Kiziak of Codiak Acres in Ardrossan, Alta., stand with Sid and Anne Hollier of Dorset, England, while the Speckle Park show carries on behind them. “They’re the holy grail of cattle,” he said. “They have a small frame, lots of marbling and a minimum of back

fat.… These are Canadian cattle. It started in Maidstone. It’s something we should be proud of.”





Genotyping shines spotlight on younger animals Top dollar paid for genotyped heifer | The science of DNA analysis is changing the cattle breeding business BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

TORONTO — Big money was paid for youthful genomic-tested dairy heifers at the 60th annual Sale of Stars at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto Nov. 8. “We are on the threshold of some great things,” said sale organizer Donald Johnston at the start of the sale. “Every year we go forward, the higher type genomic calves are the more stylish and correct calves.” Morsan Farms of Ponoka, Alta., and Butz-Hill Farm of Iowa paid the top price of the sale for a heifer born in May 2012. Sully Numero Uno Maribel, a genotyped entry, fetched $250,000. David Dyment of Ontario and Sebastien Dion of Quebec were the consignors. Coming in at $245,000 was a calf born in September named Jolicap Mogul Carmey. It came from Jolicap Holsteins of Quebec. The next high seller for another high testing genomic calf came from Cormdale Genetics of Bethany, Ont., O scar and Er ic Dup a s q ui e r o f Guelph, Ont., Impact Agri Division, LA of Burlington, Ont., and Al-Be-Ro Land and Cattle of Piacenza, Italy. The sale offered the first choice of a high genomic mating for $210,000. Multiple semen and embryo contracts from Lookout Holsteins and Richard Pesce of Canton de Hatley, Que., sold for $200,000. All the animals offered in this sale have been or will soon be genotyped to assess their future performance for milk production, fertility and other valued dairy traits. The science of DNA analysis is changing the business, said Patrice

Simard of Trans-America Genetics. Based at St-Hyacinthe, Que., this company started in 2008 just as genomic testing of dairy cattle was taking off. The company is now selling genetics in 32 countries. The ability to see what an animal is capable of producing long before it has offspring has dramatically changed the business. It has also elevated some dairy cattle because their genetics have shown they have superior traits over other more popular cattle. Calves that have been barely weaned now command six figure prices. “What they are buying are their ovaries, their acolytes,” said Simard. “The value that is being transferred

for those animals is growing.” While the average commercial dairy producer may not be swayed by

this new science, they can expect improvements in their herds because the bulls available through artificial

insemination have now been tested. More milk, greater longevity and earlier maturity are among the benefits, said Simard. “Genomics take away all the environmental effects,” he said. The key now will be managing these elite cattle to bring out the best. Research is ongoing to see what kind of feed programs and mineral supplements they may require. There is considerable focus on young heifers, but bulls are also achieving greater value, although at a younger age. “The big name bulls will be the big names when they are 10 months old,” said Simard.

Internal parasites suppress appetite, reduce weight gain ANIMAL HEALTH



he adage, “the more we look, the more we find,” is a good one when it comes to internal parasites. The problem is that we have no idea internal worms are a problem in the herd unless horses have a tremendous burden of internal worms or we

see tapeworm sections shed in the manure. Parasites decrease production subtly. Cattle shed parasite eggs in lower numbers, so doing an accurate fecal count on several animals in the herd is the only way to determine the actual parasite burden. Animal health technicians at veterinary clinics are highly trained in this procedure. Producers can take several golf ball sized individual samples to their veterinarian for fecal analysis. Most clinics do the analysis in house, but they can also be sent to several good labs across Canada. Parasites can be the root cause of many problems in cattle, but at first

they might not be obvious. Cattle may not appear sick or in poor shape or with rough hair coats. Small weight loss or gain is hard to determine just by looking at the animal. For example, can you see the extra 20 to 30 pounds that growth implants provide? I can’t. Deworming can prevent a 20 lb. loss, which makes the extra revenue from that extra 20 lb. a wise investment. Parasites also affect the immune system, which increases the susceptibility to respiratory disease, and hinders feed conversion as they rob cattle of needed nutrients. Older trials in the United States found that reproductive perfor-

mance in breeding heifers suffered. You would think infected cattle would want to eat more because parasites rob them of nutrients. However, heavily parasitized cattle don’t feel well and suffer from suppressed appetites, which worsens the problem of weight gain. All species of animals are affected by parasites. Fortunately, I seldom see clinically affected cattle or camelids with internal parasites. The problem is usually subclinical, with production losses being the main consequence. However, horses, goats and especially sheep and bison can be severely affected, sometimes fatally. Producers of any of these species should

check them periodically. Your veterinarian and technician will know what is significant to your operation with each species. Ivermectin revolutionized the way producers treat parasites when it came on the market. Western Canada had a special problem with lice. While previous medications controlled lice and warbles, they did nothing for internal parasites. The avermectin products that followed controlled all three. These medications were expensive at first, but producers could see the difference in their cattle and embraced them. Ease of administration was paramount when they became a pouron. Cattle could be treated quickly and conveniently, and twice yearly applications were often adopted when the price decreased. The issue has changed. We became complacent and stopped checking manure samples for worms. Over the past 25 years, the pour-on products have become less effective against internal parasites. They are still effective against lice but are becoming less so against internal worms, which are developing resistance. In some cases, other animals were licking off the product. These medications don’t work nearly as well today as they did a few years ago. This was first noticed in the United States close to 10 years ago. It was believed at the time that our cold Canadian winters killed lots of the parasites on pasture. That is not the case and producers in Eastern Canada, where problems have surfaced earlier, have developed different strategies for de-worming. This often includes using pour-ons and another internal dewormer called fenbendazole, or Safeguard. The product can be administered orally with a hook applicator, mixed in the feed over several days or scripted into the minerals over several days. Safeguard works by direct contact with parasites and kills them quickly. This combination will reduce external and internal parasites to zero. Merck Animal Health is doing a study across Canada that samples cattle at processing with the endectocides and then again two weeks later to determine the effectiveness of the various treatment methods. Effectiveness of the pour-on products varies from almost totally ineffective to close to 90 percent. Many products are 30 to 70 percent effective, which means many of the worms are left, reducing production and recontaminating pastures next spring. The take home message is to collect manure samples and have them checked, even if you have applied an endectocide. Use the Safeguard for internal worms if worm burdens are significant. Your veterinarian can devise a strategy next spring to decrease worm burdens over the summer and start to clean up the parasites on the pastures. This may involve letting cattle pasture for a time and then deworming them through a prescribed mineral. Roy Lewis has a veterinary practice in Westlock, Alta. and works part time as a technical services veterinarian with Merck Animal Health.


Safe-Guard TM (fenbendazole ) is a different class of dewormer than pour-ons and injectables. It works fast to stop internal parasites and the hidden damage they cause. These parasites suppress feed intake, reduce average daily gain, hurt nutrient absorption and immune function, reducing the health and performance of your cattle.1,2 Use Safe-Guard as part of your parasite control program for more pounds of high quality beef in the feedlot.3,4 Visit for more information or contact your veterinarian. 1 Endoparasite control, L.R.

Finding the arts everywhere from homes to schools to concert halls

I Teresa Chu (left) with Ally and Sheila Schmutz with Sam.

The Dog Whisperers By Kris Foster Sheila Schmutz, a professor of animal science in the College of Agriculture and Bioresources, hopes her research can find a link between genetics and deafness in dogs.

was touring an elementary school two weeks ago while the children were working on Halloween art projects. A young girl came over and gave me the picture she’d drawn of a bat. It was a pretty good looking bat, and it showed perfectly the concept of symmetry that her teacher had just explained. Half the bat on one side, half on the other. That’s how most of us start with art. We pick up a box of crayons when we’re three years old or we express ourselves diligently with one of those third grade art assignments. From there we grow up to do anything: raising food to teaching children; healing the sick to building a bridge. However, we start with art, and it takes off from there for

some unknown reason. Our kids are anchored in crayons, markers and lots of scrap paper. One of my cousins scored a whole box of scrap paper from her office for us, and we recycle it by having our kids draw on it, cut it up and fold airplanes out of it. I was the exact same way, according to my older relatives: always drawing. My uncle was on the rodeo committee and if they had left-over rodeo program blanks, I’d get them. Big sheets of glossy paper, clean on one side, became my sketch pads. They didn’t stay blank for long. I had extra encouragement at home, I suppose, since Mom was an accomplished artist. She could sketch with pencils or charcoal and paint with oils or acrylics, and it was all real as could be. She had an eye for detail, and she could paint a picture like a camera could take a photo. She taught me art at home, and she brought art to the classroom when her sisters were teaching country school near where she grew up. What kid wouldn’t want some spunky, good natured lady at the chalkboard who could make horses and cows and hills and trees flow from her fingertips? Art always brings to mind pictures and paintings, but when you say “the arts,” you’ve cast a bigger loop that takes in music, poetry, creative writing and acting on the stage.

We were lucky to have all the arts in our home, and even in our small, rural school district. Mom could play a half dozen musical instruments and wrote a column for many years. Dad would freeze if you ever put him in front of a microphone, but at the kitchen table he could recount a story with great theatrical presence and a wry sense of humor. We find the arts in all kinds of places: our homes, an elementary school in Bismarck, a country school in Red Cross Township, the kitchen table of a cattle ranch, Carnegie Hall in New York, the Louvre in Paris and the studio sets of Hollywood. Few of us will ever make our living as an artist, a musician, a writer or an actor, just as few of us will ever make our living as a professional athlete. However, just as backyard sports and school athletics can set us up with the basics of keeping our bodies healthy, so can home creativity, school bands, theaters and art classes set us up with the basics for keeping our minds sharp and our lives full. And that all struck me when a young girl gave me a symmetrical picture of a bat coloured in with a black crayon a few days before Halloween. Ryan Taylor is a rancher, writer and senator in the state legislature from Towner, North Dakota.

“Deafness in dogs is a huge problem and has always been explained as congenital—showing up at birth or in old age,” explained Schmutz. “We know that there are many types of deafness in people. Inheriting mid-life deafness is very common in humans, but there was never an animal model for mid-life deafness.” That was until Teresa Chu (BSc’96, DVM’00), a graduate student in the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the time, tracked down Schmutz seeking her expertise in genetics. Chu had come across something unusual: a seven-year-old border collie!(middle-aged by dog standards)!that became, without any previous signs, deaf. Because the dog’s mother developed deafness in mid-life, explained Chu, the owner had the younger dog tested every year since its birth and never had a positive test for deafness. “The owner wanted to breed this dog, but thought there might be a problem so tested every year,” said Chu, who confirmed the adult-onset deafness using a brainstem auditory evoked response (BAER) test. She searched for other reports and research on the subject, but found nothing. “At this age in a dog, finding that deafness could be genetic and not congenital was never reported.” Chu then came across another border collie, Ally, who went deaf at five. On a mission and wanting to learn more about the genetic implications of the disease, Chu started attending border collie herding events. There she talked to border collie owners, performed BAER tests and collected DNA samples from more than 200 dogs. She discovered mid-life deafness in about a dozen dogs, with seven cases likely being adult-onset deafness. The information that Chu collected and studied with Schmutz suggested a possible genetic link. Schmutz hopes to compare DNA sequences in both deaf and normal border collies in the hope of finding mutations, and will then check for similar mutations in other deaf dogs. It all could lead to a genetic test for adult-onset deafness. “I do this work to help dogs, but the animal model could potentially provide a medical model for hearing loss in humans, too,” explained Schmutz.

Chu,now a veterinarian in Saskatoon, adopted Ally. She had a litter of three puppies that are now seven years old and all began loosing hearing at about five years of age.

Farmer-owned terminals a target? Grain company interest | The end of single-desk marketing has increased interest in prairie grain handling assets BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

In a year of mega mergers and grain industry consolidation, it remains to be seen whether Western Canada’s independent farmerowned grain terminals will emerge as the next takeover targets. Wayne Hittel, chair of the Inland Terminals Association of Canada, said Canada’s new deregulated wheat market has prompted farmerowned terminals to forge closer ties with big grain handling companies. But it’s not yet clear whether multinationals or Canadian-based line companies will attempt to secure a larger equity stake in Western Canada’s community-owned facilities. According to Hittel, corporate partnerships involving farmer-owned terminals can take many forms. In some cases, line companies have an equity position in farmer-owned facilities. In other cases, large companies like Viterra or Richardson will negotiate grain handling agreements with farmer-owned facilities. “Just because you’re not partnered with one of the bigger companies doesn’t mean that you don’t have some kind of alliance with them,” Hittel said. “Even if it’s not a joint venture, a lot of the time you’ll sign an agreement for delivering grain to their port terminal …. I’m going to say that probably all (independent terminals) have some type of agreement in place.” Like Little Red Riding Hood, farmer-owned terminals are relatively small players in a big environment. They are carrying a basket filled

Grain companies are forming alliances with independent terminals to increase grain flowing to their port facilities. | FILE PHOTO with goodies that every grain company wants — modern elevators, access to grain, and the trust and support of local growers. So far, there has been little to suggest that independent terminals are in the crosshairs of large Canadian companies or multinationals. But industry observers are watching. Last year, farmer shareholders at North East Terminal near Wadena, Sask., voted in favour of selling their terminal and other NET assets to Richardson International for roughly $25 million.

That sale arose after NET received an unsolicited offer in June 2010. After reviewing the offer, NET board members sought competing bids, eventually securing a deal that was reported to have paid NET shareholders $700 to $750 per share on an original investment of $100. Cargill, which had a 22 percent ownership stake in the company, said it would abide by the wishes of local shareholders. At least three of ITAC’s 10 member terminals have joint ventures with large grain handling companies.

Viterra has an equity position in CMI at Naicam, Sask., and Gardiner Dam Terminal at Strongfield, Sask. Cargill has an stake in the South West Terminal near Gull Lake, Sask. Shawn Graham, Gardiner Dam Terminal Joint Venture general manager, said Glencore International’s proposed takeover of Viterra would make Glencore the terminal’s fifth corporate partner in 11 years. “We’re getting good at building partnerships, or trying anyways…,” Graham said. At Unity, Sask., North West Terminal is taking a different tack. Shareholders there bought out their corporate partner Richardson in 2007 and are in the final stages of paying for that equity investment. Jason Skinner, chief executive officer, said NWT will soon be a completely independent, shareholdercontrolled company that owns country facilities, as well as a share in a West Coast export terminal. “It’s always interesting to be standing on the outside watching, that’s for sure,” said Skinner when asked about consolidation in the grain industry. Skinner said interest in prairie elevators has increased since the elimination of single-desk marketing. “I think a lot of those companies are interested in this market and what opportunities it presents.” Kevin Hursh, executive director of ITAC, said he is not aware of pending takeover deals involving ITAC terminals, but talks have likely taken place. “As an association, we don’t really get involved in (those discussions) because that’s the business of individual members but I don’t think it’s much of a secret that there’s been lots of talk back and forth and lots of deals looking to be done,” Hursh said. ITAC terminals handle about 2.5 million tonnes of grain, pulses and oilseeds a year and had assets with an replacement value of about $370 million in 2011. Hursh said the market value of those assets has jumped over the past few years.


Pulse marketer’s predictions for rebound pushed to 2013 BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Alliance Grain Traders keeps predicting a lentil market recovery is imminent, but it still hasn’t materialized. Company president Murad AlKatib reported more disappointing result for the third quarter of 2012. Demand for AGT’s products is strengthening, but it’s not showing up in the bottom line. “Pricing pressure and generally lower prices on pulses in end use

markets has not led to the margin recovery to the extent that we believed we would see in the period,” he told investment analysts and reporters in a conference call. The Regina firm posted sales of $210 million for the quarter, up from $202 million in the previous quarter and $190 million in last year’s third quarter. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization were $11.5 million, up from $9.3 million the previous quarter but down from $15 million posted a year ago.

“In the more than 15 years I’ve spent in the global export sector, believe me when I say we have never seen conditions like those that we are now emerging from. These conditions are about as bad as they can get,” said Al-Katib. Last quarter, Al-Katib expected a return to normalized sales and margins in the second half of 2012. His new prediction for recovery is 2013. “Credit liquidity constraints globally appear to be easing and we are seeing stabilization of currency in

many of our key markets,” he said. The company anticipates that will eventually result in a return to normalized sales and margins. In the meantime, Alliance has adopted a strategic plan that includes a continued focus on cost cutting and expanding the scope of its business. AGT h o p e s t o b o o s t ma r g i n s through value adding. Alliance will examine opportunities to process cereals, soybeans and other oilseeds at its Canadian pulse processing plants to increase use of those facilities.

Peas go to the dogs SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Alliance Grain Traders’ new $22 million fractionation plant in Minot, North Dakota, should be converting pulses into proteins, fibres, starches and flours early next year. A big market for those products will be the pet food industry. AGT president Murad Al-Katib said American dogs eat five million tonnes of meat a year. Half of Canada’s pea crop would be needed to capture 10 percent of that protein market.






Retiring generation must prepare, communicate

Poor potash sales hurt profits





nowing how to refer to the generation that will be leaving the business can be a bit awkward. The older generation? Senior generation? Seasoned generation? Whatever the descriptor, it is critical early on in the planning process for the retiring generation to document initial thoughts on retirement and succession. The retiring generation’s thoughts about the succession process varies significantly from family to family: • how they see it unfolding • their role during and after transition • what their needs will be • what the end state will look like. The interests of the retiring generation can, unintentionally, get lost in the tax and estate planning discussions. It is important to document and review these interests throughout the process to ensure they are kept topof-mind. If something goes amiss during or after the succession, the succeeding generation has a whole career ahead of it to make adjustments. The retiring generation doesn’t have that luxury. Therefore, it’s important that the retiring generation ask questions and begin to understand their interests in retirement early on in the succession planning process and before the transition of ownership and management is finalized. Here are questions the retiring generation can use to stimulate discussion on retirement and succession:

PERSONAL AND LIFESTYLE • what do you envision yourselves doing in retirement? • how much income will you need to live this way? • what are your current costs of living? • have you thought about inflation pressures and how this might affect your retirement needs? • are you planning to buy big ticket items in the five years after retiring, such as a house, cottage or an extensive travel vacation? • have you thought about yourself in retirement first, as opposed to thinking first about your children’s interests?

SUCCESSOR • who is taking over the family business? • are they ready? • will they need additional management training? • if so, what type?

• have you spoken with the successors regarding the transfer of the farm and have the discussions been formal; that is, have notes been recorded? • have you spoken to advisers regarding the transfer of the farm and have these discussions been formal, with notes recorded? • do you have regular business and/ or family meetings about business in general and specifically about succession? • have you spoken to your nonfarming children regarding the transfer of the farm? • are you worried about the potential for conflict?

ESTATE • do you have an up-to-date will? • does it accurately reflect your thoughts on succession? • have you appointed powers of attorney? • are you considering using, or do you have in place, life insurance as a vehicle to assist with succession? • are you considering passing some of your estate to grandchildren? • are you concerned about being fair and equitable?

China, India demand lower prices | Agrium expects sales in the U.S. to pick up WINNIPEG (Reuters) — Agrium has reported a 56 percent drop in quarterly profit and offered a weaker-than-expected fourth-quarter outlook as China and India balked at signing contracts to buy potash. Performance in the third quarter was also hurt by downtime at Agrium’s Saskatchewan potash mine and reduced sales of farm products due to the U.S. drought. New contracts with India and China, the world’s top two potash consumers, had been anticipated by late summer, but Agrium chief executive officer Mike Wilson said a deal with China will now come by the first quarter of 2013, and one with India by the second quarter. “If you look at the robust ag sector and what we have coming at us, it doesn’t warrant the (price) decreases that they’re demanding,” Wilson said. “And given our cost to capital and costs of production, we need to resist these significant price decreases they’re asking for.” Potash Corp recently reported third-quarter earnings down 22 percent due to a standoff on new contracts with China and India. China is seen as amply supplied with potash, while the nutrient is too expensive for some Indian farmers after a cut in government subsidies. Agrium sells nearly half its potash

in North America. The company’s mine at Vanscoy, Sask., was shut down because of expansion-related work for eight weeks in the quarter, dropping potash sales by more than half to 160,000 tonnes, including supplies the company had to buy from other producers to meet sales commitments. Positive outlook Agrium says next year looks strong with a second-half rebound in potash sales and with farmers likely to plant a large corn crop to cash in on high prices. “China and India will settle,” Wilson said. “And as soon as they settle, they’re going to try to pull hard (on supplies). You combine that with Brazil, Southeast Asia, and we think it’s going to be an excellent year for potash and phosphate and nitrogen in North America. You’re going to see a real surge of demand.” Agrium’s net earnings for the third quarter ended Sept. 30 fell to $129 million from $293 million a year earlier. Sales at Agrium’s retail business dropped 10 percent as the United States faced its worst drought in more than half a century. “The negative impact of the U.S. drought on the company’s retail segment was much stronger than we

expected, and appears to have caught most sell-side analysts by surprise,” said Robert Winslow, analyst at National Bank Financial. Agrium is trying to fend off a push by its largest shareholder, Jana Partners, to spin off the retail division. “This quarter’s performance … highlight that Agrium’s strong retail business remains subject to the cyclicality of its commodity-driven wholesale business, despite the absence of any quantifiable benefits to shareholders from this combination,” Jana managing partner Barry Rosenstein said. Jana, which owns four percent of Agrium, has demanded the company return more cash to shareholders. Wilson moved to satisfy another of Jana’s demands last week by offering additional disclosure of the retail side’s operations. “They’re not getting the traction with our shareholders,” he said. The company has not received offers for the retail business, but some investors have “sniffed around,” Wilson said. Agrium posted weaker earnings despite a strong performance in its sales of nitrogen, which has returned big profit margins because of low costs of natural gas, a key ingredient. Total sales for Agrium fell six percent to $2.96 billion.

OWNERSHIP, LABOUR AND MANAGEMENT • who will own the farm assets after the transition of ownership? • who will be working on the farm; specifically, what roles will you have? • who will be the manager? • what are the expectations for involvement from the rest of the family? • are considerations required for non-family involvement, either in management and/or ownership?

FARM FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE • do you know if the farm can financially support everyone’s needs and wants? • how will the transition be financed? • do you know the tax implications of your succession?

• when will you retire? • when do you want your succession plan to be completed and ready for implementation? • when will the actual farm transition begin? • will the transition be gradual or all at once? You may have more questions than answers as you begin the process, but the process should help bring clarity and understanding to the questions. There are no right or wrong answers, which adds to the complexity. However, I find that working through this exercise with farm families can be beneficial.
