Canadian Pork Council pulls out of CFA Trade policy a sore point | Canadian Federation of Agriculture dominated by supply management agencies, general farm groups BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

The Canadian Pork Council has left the Canadian Federation of Agriculture after more than 40 years of affiliation, reducing the national farm organization to a narrower band of representation. The pork council says trade protec-

tionists dominate the national farm organization, while the pork industry lives on increased trade. “We are unwilling to carry on any longer with what for us seems to be a perpetual and often lonely struggle dealing w ith polic y proposals brought to the CFA table and committees, particularly on international trade, that are clearly contradictory

to and compromising of our sector’s predominant interest in more liberalized trade,” CPC executive director Martin Rice wrote in the letter of withdrawal sent to CFA. Once considered the national “house of agriculture” and still billing itself as Canada’s largest national farm organization, the CFA now represents no national commodity sec-

tors beyond supply managed dairy, poultry and egg industries and Alberta’s sugar beet sector. Major grain, cattle, hog, horticulture, pulse and oilseed national organizations do not belong. CFA membership is dominated by supply management agencies and sometimes-weak general farm organizations across the country.

Quebec’s Union des Producteurs Agricoles and the Ontario Federation of Agriculture are its two strongest provincial members. “We regret the decision, but I would argue it doesn’t diminish our ability to speak for all agriculture,” CFA president Ron Bonnett said. SEE PORK COUNCIL LEAVES, PAGE 2

Pork council leaves CFA “We try to represent all commodities in all parts of the country. I think the voice of a group that tries to reconcile all voices is as valuable as it always was.” The perpetually cash-strapped CFA also loses the more than $70,000 that the council pays in annual membership fees. In the letter of withdrawal, Rice said the CPC had no trade allies within CFA membership. “It would have been much easier for CPC representatives to deal with if there were not significant existing gaps in coverage of key agricultural sectors in CFA’s current commodity organization membership, notably the national organizations representing beef cattle, grains and oilseeds producers.” Broader representation of exportdependent sectors would encourage the CFA to take trade policy off the table, “thus avoiding this source of friction and disharmony between its members.” Former CPC president Jurgen Preugschas was blunt, saying protectionist forces have taken over the CFA. He has been the pork council representative on the CFA board for the past five years. He said the CFA insists on supporting a “balanced” policy that espouses both domestic protection and export expansion, rather than shying away from a policy position that divided its members. “You can’t have a balanced trade policy,” said Preugschas. “There is no such thing. You are in favour of trade or you’re not and you can’t be both.” He said his time on the CFA board

was a constant struggle. “We can’t be tied to a policy that virtually neuters what we are trying to work for,” he said. “It is really unfortunate that it (the CFA) is being very much controlled by the (Quebec) UPA and the SM5 (supply management groups).” Preugschas and Bonnett said the two groups will continue to work together on some issues, although the former CPC president said the group will also lobby in Ottawa on its own. The CPC is a member of the Canadian Agri-Food Trade Alliance. The two groups now divorcing have a long affiliation. For several decades, the pork council contracted with CFA to have council administration done by a CFA employee. Until several years ago, the council shared office space with the CFA. Bonnett defended the CFA’s “balanced position” on trade issues. “It is very close to the federal government’s own position,” he said.

Industry to collaborate on wheat research Program details coming | Sask. gov’t supports project to boost wheat production in the province BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The National Research Council will soon announce details of a multifaceted research initiative aimed at boosting wheat production and profitability in Canada. The Canadian Wheat Flagship Strategic Alliance is expected to involve plant scientists from the NRC, the University of Saskatchewan and Agriculture Canada. Details of the program have not been released, but sources at the NRC confirmed last week that a formal announcement is likely to come in the next two to three months. NRC spokesperson Patrick Bookhout confirmed that the research council is working with Agriculture Canada and the U of S on developing a wheat program. “It will focus on research and genomics … (biotic) and abiotic stresses, cell technologies, plant development and beneficial wheat microbe interactions,” Bookhout said. “However, at the time the program … hasn’t fully been implemented. It’s still in the works … so at this time, we can’t really give too many details.” The Saskatchewan government announced last February that it would provide an additional $10 million over the next five years to support new wheat research projects in the province. It has already announced plans to contribute $5 million over five years to the strategic alliance initiative. The remaining funds will be channeled through the province’s Agricultural Development Fund and will be used to promote collaborative wheat breeding partnerships that

An new initiative hopes to better co-ordinate wheat research in Canada, such as this stubble experiment at Agriculture Canada’s research centre in Swift Current, Sask. | FILE PHOTO involve publicly funded research institutions and private sector life science companies. Last year, the province issued a special call for private sector companies to partner with public sector researchers in projects that would speed the development of wheat varieties and boost wheat production in the province. Eight proposals were submitted. At least two have been approved for funding, although the province has yet to announce which companies will be involved and how much public funding each project will receive. Private partners must contribute 50 percent of total project costs to qualify for ADF funding as a public-private partnership. It is widely expected that privatepublic research partnerships will play an increasingly important role in the development and commer-

cialization of new wheat varieties in Saskatchewan. In his address to the Saskatchewan Agriculture Wheat Summit last February, Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall said ADF funding would be used to leverage research investments from private sector companies. “We need to use the latest biotechnology advances so plants can make better and quicker use of fertilizers, making them less costly to grow and easier on the environment and, perhaps most importantly, we need to use this funding to leverage research investments … in wheat improvement from private companies,” Wall said. “The best way we think to ensure investment is to build partnerships, to create a welcoming environment for (life science companies) … to continue to invest.” The Saskatchewan government also commissioned a report last year

to assess the benefits of current agricultural research funding programs in the province. KPMG was chosen to prepare the report at a cost of $171,000. Officials with Saskatchewan Agriculture’s research branch said the purpose of the report was to “determine the economic benefits to Saskatchewan from its investments in

those areas (the SRP and ADF) and to establish the policy rationale that would underpin public sector intervention in support of agricultural research and development.” The province’s current SRP agreements — one with the U of S and one with the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute — are due to expire at the end of March. Those agreements distribute $3 million annually in core research funding among 14 SRP chairs involved in crop and livestock research at the U of S and PAMI’s Western Beef Development Centre. Sources in the provincial government said last week that discussions regarding the continuation of SRP funding beyond March 31 are ongoing. The KPMG report, which was initially scheduled for completion last fall, has yet to be delivered.


Creation of wheat, barley commissions on fast track BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Saskatchewan wheat and barley growers could pay additional levies as early as this summer. Groups attempting to establish commissions in the province have submitted their plans to government in hopes of opening offices in June and collecting a checkoff by Aug. 1. That is a lot sooner than originally anticipated. In September, the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan said it could take two years to get the commissions up and running. The wheat plan proposes a 52 cent per tonne refundable levy that will raise $4.5 million annually, while the barley plan is for a 50 cent refundable levy that will generate $1 million in check-off revenue. Plans for the two commissions have been submitted to the Saskatchewan Agri-Food Council. Growers have until March 2 to provide comments


on the plans. The Agri-Food Council will then review the plans and the comments and make its recommendation to the provincial agriculture minister, who will give the respective councils a thumbs up or a thumbs down. Cherilyn Nagel, interim chair of the proposed Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission, said June is an aggressive timeline for setting up an office, considering the first meeting about establishing a wheat commission was held last June. She encouraged wheat growers to provide their comments on the establishment plans. “We’ve spoken to as many different

producers and producer groups around the province as we could and generated a lot of letters of support and this is the opportunity for people to make additional comments on what they think about this commission.” Nagel said the total levy paid by the province’s wheat growers will be $1 per tonne when the proposed wheat commission checkoff is combined with the 48 cents collected to fund the Western Grains Research Foundation, the Canadian International Grains Institute and the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre. “Based on some discussions that we’ve had with producers, around $1 per tonne would be palatable,” she said. It’s one-third of the $2.91 per tonne non-refundable levy that Australian wheat growers pay. The total barley levy will be $1.06 per tonne. Bill Cooper, interim chair of the proposed Saskatchewan Barley Development Commission, said 50

cents per tonne seemed reasonable. “We wanted it similar to what Alberta has. We didn’t want to have too much differentiation there. It will be roughly the same,” he said. The wheat committee’s projected annual revenue figure of $4.5 million is based on assumptions of an average of 11.35 million acres of spring wheat and durum planted annually, a buyer remittance level of 87.5 percent and a grower refund rate of 7.5 percent. “We can really do something with $4.5 million,” said Nagel. General and administrative expenses are projected to consume $540,000 annually and another $480,000 will be saved in reserve funding, leaving about $3.3 million to fund programs and strategic priorities. The barley plan is more conservative. It assumes 2.93 million acres of barley production, a 65 percent remittance level and a 10 percent refund rate. “The reason for (the lower remittance level) is the big feed market,”

Cooper said. “There’s a lot bigger feed market for barley than the wheat. A lot of that is going to smaller feedlots and we probably are going to miss a little more of it.” As well, a lot of farmer-to-farmer sales will fall under the radar. The barley group is concerned that refund rates will increase when grain prices fall and farmers decide they want their check-off dollars back. “I hope that’s not the case, but we didn’t want to be too overly optimistic,” he said. The end result is an estimated $1 million in annual revenue. General and administrative expenses are expected to be $200,000, while $300,000 will be set aside in reserve, resulting in $500,000 to fund annual barley programs and priorities. Both groups say the money will be used to fund research, promotion and market development and provide leadership in policy development and advocacy initiatives.





Roundup Ready alfalfa moves closer to fields Seeking registration | Forage Genetics International says it isn’t ready to commercialize the crop just yet BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Opponents of Roundup Ready alfalfa fear the crop will be commercialized in Canada this spring, but the crop breeder says it’s too early to say. “We have heard that the industry wants to push ahead this year with Roundup Ready alfalfa,” said Lucy Sharratt, co-ordinator with the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network. Mike Peterson, global traits lead for Forage Genetics International, the company with the rights to commercialize the controversial crop in Canada, said it’s premature to jump to that conclusion. “FGI has not made a decision to commercialize yet,” he said. “We have not announced simply because there’s some pieces that aren’t yet in place.” A coexistence plan for Roundup Ready alfalfa hay production for dairy producers in Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada is one of the key missing pieces. The region and sector will be Forage Genetics’ initial target. The Canadian Seed Trade Association (CSTA) is co-ordinating the development of that plan. It facilitated a workshop in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ont., last October to discuss a framework for coexistence between Roundup Ready alfalfa and nongenetically modified varieties in Eastern Canada. CSTA chief executive officer Patty Townsend said the draft is complete and will be circulated to participants of the workshop within the next couple of weeks. The association will collect comments and suggestions before posting the coexistence framework on its website. In the meantime, the group is assembling a group of academics, forage specialists, hay producers and hay users to develop best management practices (BMPs) to be incorporated into the framework. Once that is done, the completed plan will be widely distributed and posted to the CSTA’s website. Forage Genetics will be encouraged to include the BMPs as part of its commercialization plans. The other missing piece is Forage Genetics’ registration of its Roundup Ready alfalfa varieties with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. That won’t happen until the coexistence plan is complete. The registration process can take weeks or months. Peterson said it’s possible all this could come together in time for a limited spring commercial release in Eastern Canada, but time is becoming an enemy and the company doesn’t want to rush the product to market. The introduction of Roundup Ready alfalfa in the United States was met with strong opposition south of the border. The crop hit the market in 2005 but commercialization was derailed in 2007 by a legal challenge launched by the Center for Food Safety. Sales of the crop resumed in early 2011 after the U.S. Department of Agriculture completed an environmental impact statement.

Forage Genetics International, the company behind Roundup Ready alfalfa, must assemble a set of best management practices for producers before submitting its varieties for approval to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Critics are concerned that the company’s coexistence plan is inefficient and won’t prevent cross-pollination with a conventional alfalfa hay crop. | FILE PHOTO Peterson said the company learned lessons from the U.S. launch of the product. “We really don’t want to piss anybody off. We’d rather go at a pace that gets the least number of stakeholders upset at the process,” he said. Sharratt said Forage Genetics deserves a failing grade for the way it is approaching commercialization in Canada. She claims growers have been “left in the dark” about the company’s plans. “This is too much uncertainty for farmers who see a lot at stake with the introduction of Roundup Ready alfalfa. It’s an intolerable situation for farmers who feel that they would see their business jeopardized or picture real damage to their sector,” she said. The CSTA did include representatives from the organic industry and the alfalfa seed sector in its October workshop. Phillip Woodhouse, president of the National Farmers Union’s Grey County Local 344, attended the meeting. He has a problem with a key element of the coexistence plan, which is for farmers to cut their Roundup Ready alfalfa hay crop before it reaches the budding stage of development to prevent cross-pollination. Woodhouse said the plan is not foolproof. “We have concerns around that, especially in Ontario because at the bud stage is pretty well the last week

of May and the weather can be pretty touchy,” said the organic beef and cash crop farmer from Ontario’s Beaver Valley area. “You get a week of wet weather and the alfalfa has already gone to 25 percent bloom.” However, Peterson said there is a big difference between pollen drift and seed production. “It takes basically desert-like conditions and about 75 days from when that pollen is introduced into a plant before there’s a viable seed,” he said. A neighbouring conventional or organic crop would be harvested before that happens. Peterson said a coexistence plan won’t eliminate all cases of contamination, but it will keep them below “the market threshold.” There have been contamination incidents in the U.S. involving both alfalfa seed production and alfalfa hay exports, but the numbers are extremely low.

“It’s really a rounding error to zero when you look at the number of pounds and the number of acres that are out there.” Roundup Ready varieties comprise 20 to 25 percent of total U.S. alfalfa acres. He said the important thing to remember is how the trait developer and crop breeder have responded when there has been an incident. “One hundred percent of the issues have been satisfactorily resolved very quickly. It’s an extremely safe technology.” Lisa Mumm of Mumm’s Sprouting Seeds, a Saskatchewan grower and supplier of organic alfalfa seed for sprouts and micro-greens, said the discussion shouldn’t be about an acceptable level of contamination. “That’s a pretty frightening place to start any conversation,” she said. Mumm said FGI’s proposed isolation distances are based on flawed observations about how plentiful leaf cutter bees are in fields and how far they travel. She said preliminary findings of a USDA study on feral alfalfa found volunteer Roundup Ready alfalfa growing in ditches in 15 percent of the sites used in the study. Most of it was found near Roundup Ready seed production areas, but some was located elsewhere, suggesting that hay crops can be a source of the contamination. Peterson said there are no immedi-

ate plans to commercialize the crop in Western Canada. “That’s down the road a ways,” he said. “When you go west in Western Canada, there is a significant number of coexistence concerns because there’s alfalfa seed production out there.” Launching the product in Western Canada would require a more extensive coexistence plan, such as what exists in the U.S., where one county in a state will be designated for Roundup Ready alfalfa seed production and a neighbouring county for conventional alfalfa seed production. Woodhouse doesn’t believe the isolation distances proposed in the Canadian hay coexistence plan will protect the western Canadian alfalfa seed production industry. “Once (Roundup Ready alfalfa) is out, you can’t put it back in the can, especially when it’s open pollinated and can potentially grow wild.” The seed industry ships a lot of its product to the European Union, and Woodhouse has witnessed what happens when one GM flax seed is found in a sample of 10,000 seeds. The Triffid contamination incident destroyed the EU market for Canadian flax. “(Forage Genetics) is not planning on releasing it in Western Canada, but there is no border checkpoint between Manitoba and Ontario,” said Woodhouse.

Canola takes over Grain World agenda Event evolves | A lengthy bull market has changed the tone at agricultural outlook conference BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Canola is number one on the agenda. Oats have dropped into the special crops category. Futures exchanges are fighting for farmer and industry business. And “good times” are assumed to be the norm in prairie agriculture. Those are some of the features of this year’s Grain World conference, and it reveals both a conference and a prairie farming economy starkly different in tone from just a few years ago. “I thought, ‘start it off strong, start it off with canola,’ ” said conference organizer John Duvenaud of Wild Oats.

“That’s the one people really care about.” Grain World is Canada’s dominant agricultural outlook conference, a rough equivalent of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s annual outlook conference. At one time it was run by the federal government but was then taken over by the CWB. The board nurtured it for years, building it into a conference that drew hundreds of analysts, grain merchants and crop users from Canada, the United States and the rest of the world, as well as drawing farmers from across the Prairies. It was always far more than a CWB grains conference, with non-CWB crops and livestock given time at the podium. However, CWB grains were always the focus, with the conference

highlight always being the release of the coming year’s first Pool Return Outlook. However, Grain World’s future became unclear when the federal government broke the CWB monopoly and the organization started its massive downsizing, which is when Duvenaud took it over. Last year’s conference seemed a trip to Bizarro Grain World, with a couple of triumphant celebrations about the end of the CWB monopoly and a celebratory address by agriculture minister Gerry Ritz. This year, the post-CWB situation is old news and the conference has moved on. Few would disagree that putting canola at the top of the agenda reflects most farmers’ ranking of the

crop in terms of long-term profitability, while downgrading oats to special crop status also reveals a slipping of that crop. One of the most stark differences of this conference from just a few years ago is its underlying theme, which Duvenaud describes as: “How long can the good times last?” Before 2007, the notion that the prairie farm economy is experiencing good times would have seemed absurd to many in the agricultural industry, which had suffered years of financial failures. But now, half a decade into a lasting crop bull market, few would challenge that the good times are here, and that the main concern of many is to figure out how long they are going to last.


Young Alberta farmers happy with career choice BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Farming may have changed dramatically over the past generation, but the passion for agriculture hasn’t changed, said a panel of young farmers. There was never a time when Jeff Nonay, a Legal, Alta., dairy farmer, considered any other career. “I could never ever remember not

wanting to be a farmer,” Nonay told an Ag Choices conference in Camrose. Nonay said he was still young when he approached his family wanting to do more than work for wages. “I wanted some skin in the game.” Robert Semeniuk of Smoky Lake said he went straight from high school to the farm and has never doubted his decision.

Farming from a young age hasn’t been easy, but he has learned good communication is key. Semeniuk knew early in 2002 the drought would take a toll on their crop and finances. Instead of hoping for a miracle, Semeniuk went to the bank in June, pointing out expected problems. His proactive approach helped him work his way through the problem and keep him on good terms.

“They could see we had a plan,” he said. Good communication was also key to keeping the lines of communication open when Leona Dargis’ parents were killed in an airplane crash leaving five daughters to take over the farm. “Without a strong attitude things could have gone sideways,” she said of their farm in St. Vincent, in northeast Alberta. “It all starts with conversation.”

It’s an annual rite of winter for critics of Canada’s dairy supply management system. Government support prices for butter and skim milk powder increase and send a signal to the rest of the dairy chain to increase prices. On Feb. 14, the Canadian Dairy Commission announced that support prices will increase slightly effective April 1, mainly because of the cost of cattle feed based on soaring grain prices. It will mean a 0.9 percent increase in prices that farmers receive for the industrial milk used to create dairy products. It is the lowest increase in 15 years. CDC chair Randy Williamson, a former processor, said in a statement announcing the increase that it reflects growing dairy producer costs. “The change in support price reflects the increase in the cost of inputs, especially the cost of feed,” he said. “However, it remains considerably lower than the rate of inflation for food, which currently stands at 2.4 percent.” The Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association, one of the primary critics of the relentless increase in dairy prices, acknowledged that the increase is smaller than usual. Still, CRFA president Garth Whyte estimated the increase will cost restaurants $23 million per year. He said an increase of any size is unjustified in fragile economic times. The association is particularly critical of increases in the price of cheese used to make restaurant and fast food products, and White said the CDC should create a special class of pricing for cheese destined for restaurant use. He said restaurants have to compete with frozen pizza products that receive a 30 percent benefit on the cost of cheese. “CFRA will keep pushing for lower dairy prices and a special class of pricing that makes cheese more affordable for restaurateurs,” he said in a statement. Critics also complain that the dairy commission is biased toward the producer sector. At present, two of the three commissioners are producers, including chief executive officer Jacques Laforge, a former president of Dairy Farmers of Canada. The CDC says its annual pricing decisions are based on cost-of-production surveys, processor margins, industry arguments, inflation rates and the commissioners’ “own judgment, experience and knowledge of the industry.” The support price establishes what the commission will pay to remove excess butter and skim milk powder from the market to stabilize prices. Table milk prices are established provincially, but the federal support prices influences the industry price structure.

Normal U.S. summer may not be ideal Above average rain needed | Analyst says crops could get off to good start but face problems later in the growing season BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Don’t count on another severe U.S. Midwest drought to drive world crop prices sky-high again, says an American weather analyst. However, don’t expect 2013 to be a normal year in the U.S. heartland either. Drew Lerner of World Weather Inc. told farmers at the Manitoba Special Crops Symposium that relatively normal weather patterns this summer won’t compensate for last year’s wacky weather. Terribly dry soil in the western Midwest and saturated topsoil in the eastern Midwest create a likelihood of production challenges and market reactions through the season. “We aren’t going to see higher prices because of drought continuing in the U.S. We’re going to see higher prices because they can’t plant their crop,” said Lerner. “It’s going to be too wet in the eastern part of the country.” Weather is notoriously hard to forecast beyond a week, but Lerner said certain major weather systems suggest the eastern corn belt, which is the area from the Mississippi River eastward, will have a slightly wetter than average spring, while the western corn belt will receive a relatively normal amount of moisture. The eastern corn belt received much moisture in the autumn, which means even slightly higher than normal rainfall could cause flooding, even if subsoil moisture levels are only adequate. However, once spring is past, the eastern corn belt should be able to produce a relatively normal crop. The western Midwest and western corn belt should benefit from adequate rainfall at seeding time, but it won’t make up for the massive moisture deficit still lying just beneath the parched surface. “This forecast doesn’t look that terrible, but when you add in the fact that there’s dryness in the subsoil, there’s going to be more problems in the western corn belt,” said Lerner. The situation in the Midwest is impor tant for prair ie far mers because American crop production has a huge influence on world crop prices. The 2012 market rally was driven by the crippling drought that hit a large

part of the Midwest and central Plains last summer. The drought has continued in western areas, including the hard red winter wheat region of western Kansas and surrounding states. That crop is dormant now but in bad condition. Above average spring rain, which Lerner forecasts, should alleviate some of the wheat crop’s problems. It should also provide reasonable conditions for planting corn and soybeans in the western corn belt.

However, his forecast for normal conditions for the summer means those crops might outstrip their soil moisture reserves. They have little to fall back upon. “What’s going to happen in the June, July, August time period when their evaporation rates outpace the rain?” said Lerner. “They will plant in this region. They will get the crops going fairly good, but they’ll face some problems later on in the year.”

U.S. pulse growers get revenue insurance Risk management tool will put pulse growers on a level playing field with traditional grain producers BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Input costs squeeze profit despite record calf prices Economy also an issue | Unemployment in the U.S. is still high and consumers may choose less expensive pork or poultry BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

TAMPA, Fla. — The next 24 months are likely to be one of the most difficult periods in the history of the beef business. “We may have record prices, but it is going to be difficult to make any money because we have record high break-evens across all the industry segments,” said market analyst Randy Blach. The annual Cattlefax outlook at the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association convention foretold eye popping prices for the cow-calf sector and major losses for the feeding and processing sectors. “There are some things going on that we are not sure we like,” said analyst Kevin Good during the convention, held in Tampa Feb. 5-9. The industry faces continued drought across wide swaths of the United States. The underperforming economy also hurts. Unemployment remains at more than eight percent and blue collar workers have less disposable income for high priced groceries. Beef might be passed over at the grocery store in this economic climate because retail prices have increased 24 percent since 2007 and could increase again in 2013. Pork is up 21 percent for the same period and chicken is up 14 percent. “Maybe the consumer is holding onto his wallet a little bit tighter than we would like to see,” Good said. High calf prices are normally an incentive to expand, but that is not happening because of high costs. Corn and gasoline prices have increased 300 percent since 2005.

Having access to these export markets is key to the long term growth of our industry. RANDY BLACH MARKET ANALYST

That is good news for corn growers, who are expected to plant 98 million acres this year, about a million more than last year. The success of the crop is weather dependent. If the drought continues, spot corn prices between now and June could reach $7.68-$7.75 per bushel and settle around $6.85 to $7 per bu. However, prices could fall to $4 per bu. in the new crop year if moisture returns. Expensive corn is bad news for a stressed feeding sector that is already dealing with 25 to 30 percent more bunk space than necessary. There is also too much space in processing facilities. Processors have 12 percent excess packing capacity for finished beef and 23 percent excess space in cow plants. Blach said Cargill closed a plant in Texas earlier this year because of the lack of cattle and elusive profits. “You need to be prepared that we will see more plants that will be forced to close in the next couple years,” he said. These plants handled 30 million fed animals in 2000, but that has fallen to 25 million head in the last few years because not enough cattle are available.

Calves start losing money on the finishing side from the day they are purchased and placed on feed. Losses were $145 head in 2008, assuming no risk management was used, and $100 per head in 2012. Some profits were achieved in 2009 and 2010. “The people downstream from your product have to make money or eventually they will have to say uncle,” said Blach. “If we don’t start to see the feeding industry get more profitable by the second half of the year, we may be disappointed in where these feeder cattle prices actually are. You’ve got to have some profitability in the system that has been pretty scarce for the last several months.” Increased exports may create some outlets for stressed beef producers. Global meat per capita consumption in 1990 was 58 pounds and rose to 75 lb. in 2012. The growth creates trade opportunities. The U.S. is the top meat exporter with a market share of 27 percent, and last year it exported 16 billion lb. of pork, poultry and beef. Brazil is next at 22 percent, the European Union is 15 percent and Canada has seven percent. The value of beef and byproduct exports contribute $277 per head to the value of every fed steer and heifer sold. “It is a big deal and it is going to continue to grow,” Blach said. “Having access to these export markets is key to the long-term growth of our industry.” He said 30 percent of U.S. pork and poultry will be exported within 10 years and about 20 percent of beef production will be sold offshore.

U.S. pulse growers hope a new revenue based crop insurance program will help fight off the relentless competition from corn and soybeans. After 13 years of lobbying, the sector has finally achieved crop insurance parity with cereals and oilseeds. A four-year pilot program starting March 1 will provide pulse growers with a revenue option for their crops in key pulse producing states. The program will be launched for peas, lentils and chickpeas in North Dakota, Montana, Washington and Idaho. It will also be available for pinto, black, great northern and red kidney beans in North Dakota and Minnesota. It will be available only in counties within those states that have a history of producing those crops and cover most of the states’ major production areas. Tim McGreevy, chief executive officer of the USA Dry Pea and Lentil Council, said it will be nice for pulse growers to have both a yield and a revenue insurance option for their crops. “Given the volatility of markets that we’ve seen in the past five or six years, there has been a move in the U.S. towards revenue type insurance to cover the price risk that producers have faced here in the past several marketing years,” he said. McGreevy said revenue insurance levels the playing field with crops such as corn, soybeans, wheat and barley. Dick Wittman, past chair of the council, said the previous crop insurance program left a lot to be desired. “A common comment from growers was, ‘why buy the coverage? When you get to a loss claim situation, the fine print figures out a way to never pay,’ ” he said in a news release. “Finally, we have a risk management tool that puts us on a more level playing field with traditional grain producers.” Pulse crops have been losing ground to corn and soybeans, especially in North Dakota. Growers planted 8.4 million acres of corn and soybeans in the state last year, up two million acres from five years ago. They seeded 1.1 million acres of beans, peas and lentils, dow n 180,000 acres from five years ago. McGreevy doesn’t think a pulse

crop revenue insurance program will increase pea, lentil, chickpea and bean acres, but it could help prevent further erosion of pulse acres. “Will it have a big impact on acreage in these areas? It’s not going to hurt, but I think it’s more neutral,” he said. “It just (allows pulses) to compete with the other crops that already have it.” Revenue insurance will work for some growers but not others. Prices farmers can insure against won’t be released until March 1, so it’s hard to compare insurance programs. However, McGreevy expects the revenue program to be at least 15 percent more expensive than yield insurance. He hopes the program will become a permanent fixture after the fouryear trial run. In the meantime, the immediate outlook for pulses is good because prices have been attractive with the exception of lentils. “We expect to at least hold our acreage and probably increase our acreage from last year,” said McGreevy.

Crystal ball shows good fortune for oilseeds MARKET WATCH


The next 10 years should see continued exceptional demand growth for oilseeds, good growth in feed grain demand and modest growth in wheat demand. All crop exporters have a shot at supplying this growing demand, but

Brazil and the countries of the former Soviet Union are expected to benefit the most because of untapped land resources. The mature agricultural economies of the United States and Canada have limited expansion capacity. However, the U.S. will continue to do well and U.S. net farm income, while off the highs of the last three years, should remain well above the average of the 2001-10 period. These are the predictions of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which each year at this time updates its 10 year base line projections. The report does not talk about Canadian farm income, but it will likely follow a path similar to the U.S.

The report is the lead-in to the USDA’s annual outlook conference that takes place this week. The conference will have more detailed outlooks for production and demand, but the base line projection report by itself had immediate impact because of its corn yield projection for this year. The USDA has adjusted the way it projects corn yield by including the effects of the droughts of the last few decades. It came up with a projection of 163.5 bushels per acre, down from 166 forecast in last year’s base line. However, that is more than private forecasts such as Lanworth’s, which has an early view of 156.6 bu. per acre.

Last year yield was 123.4 bu. and yields generally have been disappointing for the past three years. This early USDA forecast assumes average weather in the U.S. this summer, but lingering drought makes production prospects uncertain. Private forecasters such as Drew Lerner expect normal moisture this summer in the Midwest, but the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration thinks an extension of the drought is possible. Forecasts called for big snowstorms this week in the central U.S. Looking at the longer term, the USDA’s projections said global crop production in 2013-14 and beyond should recover from the unusual coincidence last year of drought in South America, the U.S. and the Black Sea region. Crop prices should fall from the historically elevated levels of the past year but remain in a higher plateau above the pre-2007 levels. World per capita use of vegetable oil is projected to rise 17 percent in the 10 years between 2013-14 and 2022-23, compared with seven percent for meat and eight percent for total coarse grain. The U SDA said vegetable oil demand will rise faster than meal so that should be good news for canola, which has a higher oil content than soybeans. Rising incomes globally will continue to spur demand for meat and the feed grain that is used to fatten livestock. The rising standard of living causes wheat and rice per capita consumption to fall one percent because people don’t eat more starch as they get wealthier. However, increasing population does drive wheat trade higher. Global soybean trade is projected to increase by 37 percent during the next decade, while coarse grain trade rises by 27 percent and wheat by 16 percent. Corn’s dominance as a feed grain increases, making gains against barley, sorghum and other feed. China starts to become a significant corn importer. In 10 years, it is importing 19.6 million tonnes a year. U.S. wheat exports fall over the period and Canadian exports are steady. Most of the gain in world wheat trade goes to countries of the former Soviet Union that also capture much of the increase in corn and barley trade. Brazil continues to expand as a global agricultural powerhouse, exporting more soybeans and corn as well as more poultry, beef and pork. The projections indicate that Canadian and U.S. livestock will rebound in the coming 10 years and that exports of pork and beef will rise. Surprisingly, India becomes a major beef exporter. Globally, per capita consumption growth for poultry outpaces growth in pork or beef. However, the trade growth in beef is strong because more countries are able to meet their poultry and pork needs domestically. Beef trade rises 2.4 percent annually while poultry grows two percent and pork 1.4 percent. The USDA emphasizes reality can diverge radically from its projections depending on economic, policy and weather variables. Follow D’Arce McMillan on Twitter @darcemcmillan.





Canada imported $1B of U.S. beef in 2012 American exports increase | U.S. moves $5 billion of beef to a changing international customer base BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

TAMPA, Fla. — Beef from the United States is sold in 100 countries, but Canada is by far its best customer. The most recent numbers from the U.S. Meat Export Federation show Canada accepted more than $1 billion worth of beef between Jan.1 and Nov. 30, 2012. In total, 162,205 tonnes entered the country, which was 13 percent more than 2011. Shipments of American beef to Mexico were still high but declined 16 percent. Mexico bought 175,540 tonnes worth $761 million. The country was once the U.S.’s biggest trading partner and used a lot of round cuts. When the U.S. wanted more ground

beef, less was available to Mexico. According to the January-November statistics, the U.S. exported $5 billion worth of beef in 2012, which was two percent more than the same period in 2011. All this success has occurred at a time when the U.S. beef supply was shrinking to record low levels. Other countries such as Brazil and Argentina may take up the slack. “Global demand for exports is continuing to grow regardless of where production is going,” Greg Hanes of the federation said during an export committee meeting at the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association convention held in Tampa Feb. 5-9. Outside of North America, the U.S.’s greatest export expectations are eastward with a new agreement from

Japan that allows beef from cattle younger than 30 months. Japan paid $969 million for 143,900 tonnes last year, a 24 percent improvement over 2011. The most recent agreement could allow another 120 million pounds in the country worth $600 million. Russia, South Korea and China are also favoured for growth, but there are frustrations. Russia was a growing market with promises of increased quota until it decided to take a hard line on ractopamine residues. Shipments have slowed severely since early December, although many trade analysts at the convention said the ban was retaliation against U.S. policies that affected Russia. Taiwan had a similar ban that end-

ed last year. Beef is now returning but at a lower rate. Taiwan bought 31,600 tonnes of beef from the U.S. between January and November 2011, which dropped to 16,426 tonnes worth $106 million for the same period in 2012. China is importing more beef from other countries, but the U.S. continues to negotiate. China promised five years ago to offer access to beef from cattle younger than 30 months. Phil Seng, head of the meat export federation, attributed part of the delay to U.S. reluctance to accept cooked poultry from China on the grounds of food safety concerns. In return, the Chinese have issued 22 requirements that include traceability. “By not being in the market, we are missing one of the largest opportu-



Australian canola surprises



Canola values remain well supported by the need to ration tight domestic stocks. Oilseeds futures are generally off the 2013 highs set in early February because of the expectation of record soybean crops in South America. Soybeans dominate the big picture for oilseeds, but there are also developments in canola that have a minor impact on prices and trade. The Australian Bureau of Agriculture and Resource Economics and Sciences last week increased its forecast of the 2012-13 canola crop by 17 percent on better-than-expected yields and a larger planted area. It pegged production at 3.089 million tonnes, up from a December estimate of 2.636 million. “We always know canola acreage was very strong, and we had been hearing anecdotal reports of better-than-expected yields,” said Luke Mathews, commodities strategist at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia. More canola was planted in New South Wales and Western Australia than was expected, while favourable weather across Australia’s west coast boosted yields, ABARES said. In Western Europe, heavy rain and saturated soil are threatening to reduce wheat and rapeseed production, with the most serious problems in Britain, crop analysts said.

The outlook in top producer France is also deteriorating. “There are an awful lot of crops out there that are still under water, lots of patches of waterlogging and lots of very slow growing crops,” analyst Susan Twining of crop consultants ADAS said, referring to conditions in Britain. Canola is seen as most at risk of losses after crops endured both dry seeding conditions in late summer and damp grow ing weather in autumn and winter. “At the moment, the main cause of concern is rapeseed plants that are in waterlogged fields and which are suffering from root asphyxiation,” French oilseed institute Cetiom said in a note for clients. In Germany the outlook is more promising. Farmers increased the winter rapeseed sown area by 10 percent on the year to 3.5 million acres. In Ukraine, which is the third largest exporter after Canada and Australia, the crop should rebound from last year’s five-year low. Analyst Oil World said 94 percent of the crop was in good or satisfactory condition at the end of January, up from 66 percent last year. The snow has mostly melted in Ukraine, and there is the potential for damage if cold weather returns. Ukraine produced 1.2 million tonnes last year, down from 1.44 million in the previous year, according to the USDA. Oil World thinks the crop was larger, at 1.3 million tonnes.


CWB releases final payments SASKATOON STAFF

The CWB announced final payments for 2011-12 crops. No. 1 CW red spring wheat 12.5 percent protein has a final payment of $13.79 to make the total payment $290.49 per tonne at port. No. 1 CW amber durum 12.5 percent protein receives a final payment

of $14.54 to make a total payment of $345.24. The final payment for Select two-row barley is $16.34 for a total of $312.94. Direct deposits will be made on Feb. 26. Cheques should begin arriving in mailboxes March 7. A list of payments for all grades and types is available at

weight range fell to $3.70 Cdn per pound hot hanging weight. Grade A heifers sold up to $3.70. Animals older than 30 months and those outside the desirable weight range may be discounted. Slaughter bulls and cows were $1.70-$1.80 per lb. In the live market, quality 2012 bulls sold for about $2.20 per lb. while 2011 bulls sold for up to $1.65 per lb. on light offerings. Heifers from 2012 sold for up to $1.85 while 2011s were $1.70.

nities this industry has before it,” Seng said. “The U.S. is still trying to figure out how to work with China.… I don’t know what it is going to take to get it done. It is going to take a lot of resolve, but I do know with the Chinese you have to figure out how you will negotiate.” The Middle East is another opportunity. The region is accepting mostly liver and variety meats, but more muscle cuts are also going there as it builds a western style menu for the tourist trade. The ongoing unrest in the Middle East has not stopped trade. “Protesters still need to eat, so there is a river of liver still going to Egypt,” said Steve Isaf, chair of the meat export federation.

Beaver Hill Auction in Tofield, Alta., reported 577 sheep and 34 goats sold Feb. 11. Wool lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $147-$162 per cwt., 70 to 85 lb. were $125-$154, 86 to 105 lb. were $111$132 and 106 lb. and heavier were

$105-$112. Wool rams were $59-$80 per cwt. Cull ewes were $55-$75 and bred ewes were $150-$220 per head. Hair lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $136-$155 per cwt., 70 to 85 lb. were $121-$139, 86 to 105 lb. were $102$115 and 106 lb. and heavier were $100-$110. Hair rams were $69-$83 per cwt. Cull ewes were $60-$70. Good kid goats lighter than 50 lb. were $155-$215. Those heavier than 50 lb. were $165-$210 per cwt. Nannies were $50-$82.50 per cwt. Billies were $50-$100. Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported 1,223 sheep and lambs and 63 goats traded Feb. 11. Light lambs sold steady, all others $3-$5 cwt. lower. Good sheep traded $5 cwt. lower with extreme pressure on over fat and very thin types. Goats sold steady.




Weaker futures and larger showlist volumes pressured the cash market. Fed steers averaged $114.89 per hundredweight, down $1.44 and heifers were $113.88, down $1.31. Packers have good supply. Most of the dressed trade was at $192-$193 per cwt. delivered. Weekly sales volume totalled 12,328, up 3 percent. The cash to futures basis weakened to -$11.27. Weekly fed exports to Feb. 2 totalled 6,012, down 19 percent. Demand from retailers for middle cuts should soon gain momentum. Processing margins remain negative and until cutout values strengthen fed prices will remain flat.

Funds sold futures creating volatility in the Chicago market and that hurt live feeder prices. Average feeder steers and heifers prices fell about $2 per cwt. Mid weight grass-type calves saw decent buyer interest, while heavier feeders destined for the summer fed market were discounted. Stockers 300-400 pounds slid $4-$6 on light volume and poor quality. Steers and heifers 400-500 lb. fell $1-$2. Steers 500-700 lb. were mostly steady. Those heavier than 800 lb. fell $1-$2, heifers heavier than 900 lb. were $3 lower. Auction volume jumped higher to 35,596 head. Weekly feeder exports to Feb. 2 were 6,260 up 75 percent. The severe futures market swing may indicate a bottom. Feed supplies are dwindling and favourable shipping weather is expected to bring more feeders to auction this week. American interest in Canadian feeders is surprisingly good despite ongoing drought concerns.

The U.S. Choice composite held mostly steady and Select fell $1.53. Weekly Canadian cutouts to Feb. 8 fell with AAA almost $3.25 lower and AA about $2 lower. The Montreal wholesale market for delivery this week was steady at $215.

Falling pork prices, lackluster pork demand and a holiday shortened week drove hog prices down. Hog futures fell 2.5 percent on the week, the biggest drop in four months. Iowa-southern Minnesota hogs delivered to packing plants traded at about $62 US per cwt. Feb. 15, down from $65 Feb. 8. The estimated pork carcass cutout fell to $80 on Feb. 15 down from $82.23 Feb. 8. Weekly slaughter to Feb. 16 was estimated at 2.145, up from 2.139 million the week before. Last year, slaughter was 2.15 million.

BISON BULLS DIP The Canadian Bison Association said grade A bulls in the desirable



COWS RISE D1, D2 cows ranged $68-$80 to average $73.90, up $1.34 per cwt. D3 cows ranged $60-$72 to average $65.75, up 60 cents. The butcher bull average jumped to $81.11 per cwt., up $2.99. Weekly Western Canadian non-fed slaughter to Feb. 9 was up eight percent. Weekly non-fed exports to Feb. 2 rose one percent to 7,654 head.

PRAIRIE ON FEED REPORT The Canfax Feb. 1 cattle on feed report for Alberta and Saskatchewan feedlots showed inventory at 893,520 head, down five percent from a year ago and four percent lower than the five year average. January marketings fell eight percent from a year ago and placements at 69,526 fell 27 percent. Lower placements of steers and heifers heavier than 700 lb. should help minimize supply pressure in early summer.

XL review needs to explain the why, when and who


unshine is a good disinfectant. It wouldn’t have been enough to stop E. coli contamination at the XL Foods meat plant last fall, but it might be enough to reveal how and why it happened. The federal government last week announced an independent review of circumstances surrounding the largest beef recall in Canadian history. In September and October 2012, E. coli in some products from one of Western Canada’s largest packing plants sickened 18 people and severely damaged consumer confidence in food safety. Consumers and beef industry organizations demanded to know how the contamination occurred, why so much suspect beef was distributed, why communication was so abysmal and what role the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and plant personnel played in the matter. The government appears to have heard those demands and has offered the further promise that results from the investigation will be made public. We must hold the government to that promise. A veterinarian, a medical doctor and a food industry expert have been tasked with the review. The first of three goals itemized on the panel’s governmentissued list is to examine all factors contributing to the E. coli outbreak at the XL plant in Brooks, Alta., including inspection policies, protocols and information exchange. That’s the crux of the matter. The other two goals are designed to examine the CFIA’s ability to detect E. coli contamination and mount an effective response. The panel should consider all of this “in conjunction with the response of its food safety system partners, including XL Foods Inc. and foreign regulators, to the E. coli outbreak, including but not limited to the effectiveness of their prevention, detection, recall response, incident management and investigative activities, as

well as their collaboration and communication with one another, the public and stakeholders for the purpose of ensuring consumer safety.” Whew. If successful in its quest for this information, the panel may be able to answer most of the questions surrounding the recall. There is a tendency in today’s world to affix blame when things go wrong, as they did indeed at XL Foods. Many in the cattle and beef industry, who still feel the effects from the BSE crisis as they watch domestic beef consumption decline, feel that desire most acutely. “It is curious how E. coli in lettuce is barely a blip on the radar and nearly all of the other E. coli disasters never required the industry involved to be run over by a bus,” says the Western Stock Growers Association. “This leads (us) to wonder who bears responsibility and who should be held accountable. Whether it is called an inquiry or investigation or something else, we need to arrive at the truth.” Once arrived, that truth must be used to ensure food safety protocols are as strong as we can make them. However, it’s also important for all of us to realize that complete food safety isn’t achievable given the adaptability of bacteria and the numerous points in the food chain when safety can be compromised. Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz has asked the panel to make recommendations for improvement, “within the existing resources of the CFIA.” Let us hope those existing resources have enough depth to address the problems surrounding the beef recall, and also that the sun shines on all players in the scenario whose actions contributed to the problem.

Splintering farm voice a slow-motion, decades-long process of division NATIONAL VIEW



he Canadian Pork Council’s decision to pull out of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture is just the latest dramatic moment in a long-running saga. Observing the splintering of the Canadian farm lobby voice over the past four decades has been like watching a slow-motion multiple vehicle pile-up on Alberta’s Highway

2 or Ontario’s six-lane 401. There are of course reasons for highway wrecks, just as there are reasons for the fractionalization of Canadian farmers. Large agribusiness farmers checking the web for prices and trade opportunities in Asia have little in common with small farmers trying to cash in on the local food movement, other than that they both produce protein for sale. That gap is particularly true on trade issues where trade-sensitive sectors and gung-ho exporters simply don’t share the same goals or business models. It is a reality that Canadian governments have had to face for decades as they created a “balanced position” that supports both domestic protectionism and aggressive export expansion.

As he spoke last week about the pork council decision to pull out of the CFA, which has its own version of the “balanced position,” former CPC president Jurgen Preugschas said publicly what many skeptics have said quietly for years. “You can’t have a balanced trade policy, there’s no such thing,” he said. “You’re in favour of trade or you’re not and you can’t be both.” Defenders of the “balanced position” correctly argue that most countries in trade negotiations have “offensive” and “defensive” issues as Canada does, but that doesn’t square the logic circle. Once upon a time, the CFA imagined itself the unified voice of Canadian agriculture. Back in the days of long-serving president Herb Hannam in the

1930s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, the dream was that in the face of powerful and concentrated corporate players, farmers needed a concentrated counteracting voice to government and industry. The wheels began to fall off that dream in the 1970s when prairie commodity groups began to challenge the hegemony of the big players of the day: the wheat pools, provincial umbrella organizations and the CFA. Governments were happy to have multiple farm messages from which to pick and choose. A turning point was the 1993 General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade deal, which protected Canadian supply management but gave exporters little new access. Export interests thought too much

attention was paid to protecting supply management and too little to the export needs of the majority. The result was more aggressive lobbying by export sectors and the founding of the Canadian Agri-Food Trade Alliance. Prairie general farm organizations blew up in the early 1980s over the Crowsnest Pass freight rate issue, and the CFA lost three strong regional members, later replaced by organizations that have sometimes struggled. Then the prairie wheat pools, strong members and significant financial backers, disappeared. CWB briefly followed as a member, but it too is gone from the CFA. The dream of a “house of agriculture” recedes. The volume of export voices grows. The agricultural Tower of Babel becomes noisier.





Are our pensions retiring the family farm?

MP watchdogs are taking bite out of taxpayer



ension funds have started buying up farmland around the world in recent years, seeing it as a safe, long-term investment. Farmland investment companies such as AgCapita, Assiniboia Capital, Bonnefield Financial and Prairie Merchants are sowing the seeds of speculation across the Prairies. Saskatchewan, with our low land prices and a farming population averaging 58 years old, is shaping up to be fertile ground for these companies. Hundreds of thousands of acres of Saskatchewan farmland are already under the management of these investment companies. Several seek to attract institutional investors such as pension funds and RRSP-eligible mutual funds to finance further land purchases. AgCapita, which as of 2011 had bought $12.8 million of Saskatchewan farmland, is RRSP eligible. Two RRSP mutual funds, Golden Opportunities and SaskWorks, have invested in farmland investment funds. SaskWorks has invested $20 million with Agco Ag Ventures, and Golden Opportunities has funneled $3.5 million into Assiniboia Capital (via ADC Enterprises) as well as another $2.5 million into Input Capital Limited Partnerships, a division of Assiniboia.

They rent the land back to farmers while waiting for the selling price to rise to sufficiently profitable levels. Usually this is done on a cash rent basis, where all of the day-to-day risk of farming is borne solely by the renting farmer. This situation has similarities to that in Europe of the 19th century, which is what led many Europeans to uproot their families and escape to settle in Canada. Retiring farmers are faced with a choice: pass their land onto another family farmer, possibly taking less

than the maximum value, or sell to the highest bidder with no concern for the legacy of the land. Under this new system, retiring farmers should be happy in their twilight years, urban residents with pensions invested in farmland will be happy with the long-term outlook of their retirement money and the land grabbing companies will happily take their cut as land values and rents keep rising. But how do we expect young Canadians to consider becoming farmers? The reality is that today there are not enough young farmers. Farmers younger than 35 represent only eight percent of the farming population, raising the question of who will work

the land in the future? Who will grow our food? This is where the long-term vision of retirement planning seems to have a blind spot. Speculation around farmland is already putting the cost of land out of reach for many individual farmers looking to either start or expand an operation, leaving investment companies with millions of dollars in capital in an even better position to increase their land holdings. If more of them are able to generate investment dollars through RRSPs, it will further this cycle. Policies and tax breaks that encourage Canadians to plan responsibly for their retirements are essential, but there is a clear lack of planning for the next generation of farmers. Family farms have been the backbone of Canadian agriculture for our entire history and now they are being priced out of the market for the most essential of assets: the land. Without a plan and policies in place to ensure that the next generation of Canadians can carry on our proud farming tradition, the only future in store for Canadian agriculture is one occupied only by the largest, most corporate farms sparsely scattered over an increasingly empty prairie. This is not a future that bodes well for Canadian food security and sovereignty, and it certainly does not look promising for family farms. That is not a future I want to see in Canada.

Sask. Crop Insurance could learn from Alberta HURSH ON AG



rop insurance is a great program and it doesn’t get the praise it deserves. However, it could be even better with relatively minor adjustments. Saskatchewan should take a look at what Alberta offers. The federal and Saskatchewan governments can rightly claim credit for a number of program enhancements this year. Yield trending has improved the coverage levels for hard red and hard white spring wheat, along with oats. As well, more Saskatchewan producers are eligible to insure soybeans, and the establishment benefits for

canola and field peas have been increased. However, the main improvement comes from higher grain prices rather than any government decision. The average coverage level is a record high $194 per acre, up from $174 last year and more than double the coverage offered in 2007. In 2012, the insured price for canola was $11.11 a bushel. This year it will be $12.36. Hard red spring wheat was $5.14 a bu. last year and is now $6.80. Peas have gone from $6.93 to $7.43. A few crops are going the other direction. Large green lentils are dropping from 22 cents a pound down to 20 cents. The biggest drop is on chickpeas with the large kabuli type falling from 38.5 cents a lb. to 29 cents. Overall though, the price outlook was higher for most crops in December 2012 than in December 2011. That’s why overall crop insurance coverage has jumped. To its credit, Saskatchewan Crop Insurance has a contract price option. If you lock in a favourable

price on part of the crop you hope to grow, that contract price can be used to increase your insured price. Conversely, the variable price option being offered has little attraction. A July price forecast is used with the variable price option, so you get to insure at a price closer to harvest time values. The problem comes from how premiums are handled. At one time, the premium went up or down corresponding to whether the variable price ended up higher or lower. Now, producers choosing the variable price option pay a higher premium up front, but their coverage might go up or down depending on what happens with the price of the crop. Who wants to pay a higher premium when you could end up with coverage dropping by as much as 50 percent? Alberta has this figured out. It offers a variable price benefit on most crops at no additional cost. If the price in the fall is higher than the spring price, producers receive the higher cover-

age automatically. And Alberta uses an October price, making it more relevant than the July price used in Saskatchewan. Alberta has also been offering a program that it funds jointly with producers without any federal support. Called the spring price endorsement, it is price insurance rather than production insurance. Enrolled producers get a payment If the October price is more than 10 percent lower than the spring price. If a producer has a 40 bu. per acre average yield on barley and chooses 80 percent yield coverage, the crop insurance yield guarantee is 32 bu. an acre. Let’s say the producer grows more than 40 bu. per acre, but the price of barley drops from $4.35 a bu. in the spring to $3.75 in the fall. The producer is paid the 60 cents difference on 32 bu. per acre. Only in Alberta. Pity. Kevin Hursh is an agricultural journalist, consultant and farmer. He can be reached by e-mail at




nce a student of political science, I was generally pretty impressed with the way our government was set up — at least in theory. You have your representative house of elected folks. You have your second house of non-elected folks, who don’t have to worry about pleasing voters, to keep an eye on the elected folks. Then, for good measure, you have your representative of the head of state, the governor general. When I got a bit less starry eyed about the whole democracy thing, I realized that the GG , from a keeping Canada intact standpoint, was pretty useless. It’s a nice figurehead, but a GG would really have to step out of his or her zone to make any political difference in this country. Oh well, I thought. At least we still have senators to keep an eye on those MPs. Good thing they’re not elected, or everyone running this country would be luring the populace with promises. Lately, though, I’ve been a little annoyed with some of those senators, who clearly feel the world owes them a living. Patrick Brazeau would be the No. 1 annoyance. He has been charged with assault and sexual assault. This is the sort of person we want in the red chamber? At least the Senate has booted him for the time being, but he’s still making his 130 grand. Granted, one is innocent until proven guilty, and we must wait for the legal system to work, but I just don’t know about paying someone not to show up for work. Then there are the other senators who may, or may not, live in the regions they represent. Mike Duffy may or may not live in Prince Edward Island, for example, and is being audited for claiming special expenses for a second residence. Of greatest interest to the West is Pamela Wallin, famously from Wadena, Sask., whose expenses are also now being checked by an outside auditing firm. Do we care where senators live? I think we should, for if they do not visit us from time to time, how would they know what we, the people in their regions, need? And if that’s not important, why are senators appointed from the various regions of Canada in the first place? The big downside to all these alleged shenanigans among senators? You can’t vote them out when they really make you cranky.

Over the last few weeks, farmers and Canadians in general have been talking about two ads. Somewhat ironically, both were throwbacks to simpler times, but that’s all they have in common. I thought one was classy and the other classless. One brought tears to my eyes; the other just made me smirk. When thinking of my grandchildren, one gave me a sense of pride; the other made me feel sheepish. Of course, the ultimate test of an ad is whether or not it sells the product it is extolling. I may not be typical of the average farmer, but I can tell you

that today, I am far more inclined to buy a Dodge truck than I am to sign a Canadian Wheat Board contract. Terry James, Vegreville, Alta.

OAT MARKETING FREEDOM To the Editor: On Feb. 14, 2010 — Valentine’s Day — I sold a tandem load of oats for $3.50 per bushel. I loaded a second load of oats to take to town the very next day and guess what? The price of oats dropped 10 percent. This amounted to a loss of $178.50 on the load.

I have monitored the price of oats since that time and have seen oats hit $3.50 a bu. only a few times, but I have often seen it go lower than $2 per bu. This is the “marketing freedom” I have with oats. I predict that with the “marketing freedom” that (federal agriculture minister) Gerry Ritz has given wheat and barley farmers now, they will be big financial losers within three years. But there are some winners already besides the private trade that skimmed that money off my oat crop. Minister Ritz has given $300,000 of taxpayers’ money to the “oat growers association” to find new markets. Didn’t he say the farmers’ responsibility ends when the grain hits the elevator’s pit?

Manager Strategist Marketer Accountant Problem-Solver Role Model

So why should taxpayers’ money be given to some handpicked group of “marketing freedom” oats growers? Isn’t it the responsibility of oats buyers to find their own oats markets and not the taxpayers? Doesn’t minister Ritz believe in the market? If oats were still under the CWB’s single desk, oats marketing research and promotion could be done for pennies per bushel and farmers would be in control. Previously, with the combined basket of crops, the single desk CWB could gain efficiencies in marketing multiple crops. Now that Ritz has killed the CWB’s single desk, no grain company will spend any money on market development when they can just flip the crop after taking it from farmers. Instead,Ritz has to give taxpayers’ monies to his loyal farm groups to supposedly carry this work out. Mr. Ritz and his federal government have made a financial mess out of grain marketing and have taken away farmer control, which will take years for another government to straighten out.

We understand your business



When I was a young man, I was involved in a 4-H program, and lived by the organization’s motto, “Learn to Do by Doing.” What I learned from that experience is that people make a difference. I grew up in a rural community where our school was a community school. It was actually built by the parents of the children that attended that school. I coached and volunteered, just as my parents had done, because I knew that people make a difference in the lives of others. As an elected official, I’ve learned that people matter greatly when it comes to developing policy that makes sense. The NDP doesn’t understand that. They are directing Manitoba Hydro to plow ahead with a $21 billion megaproject plan gamble to build two new hydro dams and a hydro transmission line without giving the people of Manitoba a say in how that project should be structured, or if the project is needed at all. Instead of being open, transparent and including Manitobans in the decision process, the NDP hides facts and makes it as difficult as possible for Manitobans to understand the project. Take for instance the review processes for these projects. According to Manitoba’s sustainable development principles, economic and environmental decision-making should be integrated to create a clear picture of whether the project makes sense or not. The Wuskwatim dam was reviewed this way and the process worked well. For the megaproject, however, the NDP created four different review commissions to study individual pieces of the project. These commissions complained they can’t do a complete job without more information and a better review process than the one dictated by the NDP. The NDP refused to provide it. Many Manitoba Hydro officials and

OPINION experts, both present and past, say that the NDP’s approach doesn’t make sense…. According to the experts, Manitoba will not need new power generation for a decade. The NDP are directing Manitoba Hydro to spend $21 billion on the Keeyask and Conawapa dams and BiPole 3 hydro line on the gamble of selling profitable power into foreign markets. The effect of this megaproject gamble will be to triple your Manitoba Hydro debt and have your hydro rates double if the NDP’s gamble on export sales pays off…. In the end, the NDP won’t have to pay up if their gamble doesn’t work: the people of Manitoba and their children will be forced to pay. The price will be higher hydro bills and increased taxes to cover hydro’s debt. That’s why it’s so important Manitobans demand a complete review of the megaproject plan by experts and not NDP cabinet ministers….

WHY GO BACKWARD? To the Editor: “The whole history of the progress of human liberty shows that all the concessions yet made to her august claims have been born of earnest struggle,” Frederick Douglass said. “If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favour freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a

struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong that will be imposed on them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those they oppress.” These words are certainly relevant to what is currently happening in our country under the regressive (prime minister Stephen) Harper regime. Name just about any realm of hardwon public gain and you will find Harper actively working to bring us back to the good old days of rule by the oligarchy, where most citizens are nothing more than cheap disposable labour. Health care, corporate domination, environment, labour, democracy itself — all going backward under the


Regressive Conservatives. Too many Canadians are quietly submitting, their senses dulled by easy credit, ever present advertising and corporate media propaganda. Submitting is a very dangerous course. Resist. Mike Bray, Indian Head, Sask.

LACK OF RESPECT To the Editor: The CWB was a self-sufficient organization that pooled and marketed prairie farmers’ grain, run for the most part by the farmers. It was a non-profit organization, where all the profits were returned to the farmer once all the deals were done. The government’s idea of the CWB is something of value. They are invit-

ing grain companies and foreign investors to “have a piece of the prairie grain business.” Again, this government is showing a total lack of respect to the grain producer. For someone to get a piece of the prairie grain business, someone has to give up a piece. This is not good for the producers or the country. This will put our food production, and the management thereof, into corporation or foreign ownership, or both. Cream skimmed off the top will never end up in the local rural economy. Everybody loses and will have less. Why do corporations and foreign investors invest in organizations that are privatizing? To make money. If one person can tell me one reason why this is good for the producer, I would like to hear it. Gerald Marshman, Rockyford, Alta.


Bible stories revisited SPIRITUAL VIGNETTES



haring stories from the Old Testament with a lively group of seniors has made the days of winter go faster. The 12 women who participate are 80 to 100, and most live in a seniors’ lodge. We work from a printout of the current passage or story. This can be reread through the week and compared with various Bible translations. Grandma Sasse implanted my love for the Old Testament by telling them to me as we sat in the rocking chair. Because I was always confused about who preceded or followed whom, our current group starts its stories by referring to a timeline. Start with the Patriarchs, then Moses, then Solomon. We also use a simple map that includes Egypt, the Jordan River and Persia. This way, we get a good command of time and location for each story. We listen to stories about women whom the male storytellers greatly admired. Remember the names and importance of the matriarchs (Sarah, Rebecca and Rachel) as well as the patriarchs. Think about what it means for Naomi when she and her husband had to move to Moab because they were starving, and how she felt living in a foreign land after her husband and sons died. Daughter-in-law Ruth returned with Naomi to her homeland. What did it mean that Ruth, the Moabite, was the greatgreat-grandmother of David? We laugh over the humour hidden in the naming of Shechem’s foolish King Hamor. Was that a nickname? Hamor, in Hebrew, is also the word for jackass. I hadn’t realized that Hadassah, the name for many Jewish bazaars, was the actual Jewish name for (Persian) Queen Esther. Joyce Sasse writes for the Canadian Rural Church Network at www.canadian

Hearings start on rail service bill Improving service | Opposition MPs argue bill should be harder on railways BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Federal transport minister Denis Lebel launched Parliament Hill hearings on rail service legislation last week by arguing the bill is a milestone for the shipping industry and should receive quick approval. Opposition MPs are insisting that shippers who want to speak at the committee should have a full hearing, but transport committee chair Larry Miller said he hopes witness hearings can be wrapped up by March 7 after just two weeks of process. “Things can come up, but I hope we can finish up when we meet March 7,” he said. If that schedule works, Bill C-52 could be back in the House of Commons for final debate by late March and through the Senate and into law by summer. Opposition MPs, who say they agree with the principle of the legislation and agreed unanimously to send it to committee, may try to extend hearing time, creating potential political partisan struggles at the committee. Lebel defended Bill C-52 as a way to put shippers in “the driver’s seat” in relations with railways, all the while insisting that it is balanced legislation that does not take sides. “This legislation will help ensure that railways and shippers work together to accomplish a shared goal to improve rail freight service in Canada,” Lebel told the House of Commons transport committee Feb. 12. Opposition MPs argued that the bill is not tough enough on the railways. Several Conservative MPs suggested it is too one-sided in favour of shippers. The transport minister said the proposed regime of arbitrated service agreements and fines of up to $100,000 if railways do not live up to the agreements is aimed at convincing railways that working with shippers is the best business plan. “The intent is to create the conditions that will allow for successful commercial negotiations that (would) normally be possible in a free market,” he said. “Ideally, the legislation will never have to be used.” However, it will be there as a backstop if shippers find carriers unreasonable, he added. “The shipper will be in the driver’s seat,” said Lebel. “He gets to trigger arbitration, identify the type of service desired and frame the issues to be addressed in front of the arbitrator.” Shippers, including agricultural producers and companies, will be able to appeal to the Canadian Transportation Agency if they cannot reach a satisfactory deal with a railway. The arbitration process will be no more than 45 days with the ruling binding. Transport Canada officials told MPs that shippers would have operational obligations to load cars when they are delivered, but there would be no penalties for failure to comply. Railways could take them to court for damages. It led Toronto MP Joe Daniel to suggest the bill is one-sided.

“The way the bill is actually put forward, it almost seems to be favouring the shippers rather than trying to come up with an equitable solution,” he said. The railways will make the same point when they appear as witnesses. They insist legislative intervention is unnecessary. Lebel insisted the bill is balanced, correcting a current market power imbalance. Officials said the terms of the bill will apply to federally regulated short-line railways. As well, any penalties for noncompliance by the carriers will go to

the government rather than the shippers. Lebel said the potential for fines would encourage railways to do the right thing and the fact that there would be no revenue reward for shippers would deter them from wanting to use the system frivolously. Opposition MPs complained the legislation would not apply to shippers who have already signed a service agreement with a carrier, even if its terms are worse than are possible under Bill C-52. Lebel said most of the private agreements end in a year or two and then shippers could move to legislative remedies if need be.

New legislation would see fines up to $100,000 if railways do not live up to agreements. | FILE PHOTO

Cargill’s enhanced monitoring works, says executive Video monitoring | Meat processor finds fewer mistakes after expanding its watch on employees BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Cargill’s Scott Entz says the company has found fewer violations of standards by employees in a High River, Alta., slaughter plant after employing a new video monitoring system. | ED WHITE PHOTO

BRANDON — It could be assumed that more experienced workers in a slaughter plant would make fewer

errors and cause fewer problems than a shift of newer workers. But that wasn’t the case when Cargill began monitoring what actually occurs in its slaughter plant in High River, Alta., a company official told the Manitoba Beef Producers annual meeting. The company found that the more experienced line was committing far more mistakes and breaking more rules on procedure than the other shift, which had many newer workers. “The second shift really took the messaging and the expectations that we set out for them to heart,” said Scott Entz, Cargill Meat Solutions’ vice-president and general manager. However, the first shift seemed to have dropped to a lower level of care, one that its members might not have realized existed because it didn’t know there was a problem. “We hadn’t made the expectations clear enough,” said Entz. “We hadn’t given them feedback and created an environment where the right thing to do was the right thing.” Cargill has installed a video monitoring system to ensure it is meeting its own standards at 15 points along the process, from unloading onward. A non-Cargill company monitors the video feed, and it will immediately send a message to plant managers if it sees anything that breaks Cargill’s procedural rules. Entz said he and other managers will receive a page alerting them of a recent problem so they can check it out while it is still current. This is the kind of monitoring that Entz said meat buyers now demand because they have to deal with frequent criticisms and questions from consumers and activists and they want to be able to defend the products they sell. “When our customers come to us, that’s one of their expectations, that you have clear programs, clear expectations and you’re following up on these,” said Entz. Entz showed a chart of the deviation from standards of the two shifts, which improved radically at the point where the first shift was told about its noticeably worse performance. “A little bit of change with the experienced folks, eh?” said Entz. Their error rate fell greatly, to below the level of the other shift, after being told they were performing worse. He said having good standards and monitoring whether they are being followed is an important part of ensuring that animal welfare and food safety problems are minimized and don’t become an issue. That has been Cargill’s hope with this program, he added. “Hopefully we have eliminated and reduced the risk.”





Grass recovers following destructive blaze Pasture health | While a massive 1997 fire was costly, the native grazing land it burned was quick to bounce back BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

FORT MACLEOD, Alta. — The scorched earth left by grass fires isn’t a pretty sight, but native grazing land can be remarkably resilient, says a rangeland specialist. Varge Craig of Alberta Rangeland Services has been monitoring recovery of grasslands from a fire that took place 16 years ago. He reviewed his observations at the Feb. 13 Holding the Reins conference organized by the Oldman Watershed Council. The Porcupine Hills to Granum fire burned 54,000 acres on Dec. 14, 1997, in a runaway blaze pushed by 90 km/h winds and dry conditions. A swath of fire 32 kilometres long burned five homes, killed 250 cattle and displaced another 5,000 head, destroyed 960 km of fence and burned large amounts of hay and winter feed. The fire caused $10 million in uninsured losses and is still considered one of the hottest grassland fires ever to occur in Canada, Craig said. The community banded together to fight and then manage after the fire. Researchers later learned that damage to grass was far less than feared. “In terms of the severity of the burns … less than three percent of the total burning area was severely burned. We were dealing more with moderate to lightly burned areas.” Severity made a big difference in grass health and recovery because of root crown health and remaining soil litter and thatch. However, Craig said

While often dangerous, grass fires can benefit pasture land, improving forage quality and nutrient cycling. | spring rain was the big bonus. “Probably the blessing, the best thing that happened for us in terms of the community and the landscape, was the fact that 1998 was a tremendous year for moisture. From my perspective, it couldn’t have gotten any better,” he said. “At the critical time from April, May and June, we couldn’t have asked for better rainfall.” Records show 1998 precipitation from April to September totalled 574.2 millimetres, much higher than

average for the region. Fire is feared, but it was once a naturally occurring event on the Prairies. Craig estimated major prairie fires used to occur at least once every 10 years before fire suppression became the norm. Lessons learned from the 1997 fire included the need for fire plans, the importance of monitoring fire aftermath for best pasture recovery and the knowledge that rangelands are more resilient than many believe. Rangeland specialist Kevin France


echoed some of those statements. “It’s not if, but when,” said France in reference to prairie fires. There are obvious risks to grass fires in terms of life and property, but benefits can include ecosystem renewal, improved forage quality, better wildlife habitat and nutrient cycling. France said few grassland fires penetrate the soil to a depth that kills plant roots. As well, grazing animals are attracted to burned sites because they offer tender, palatable grass. As an example, France said a fire on

the Milk River ridge in November 2011 burned 8,000 acres of grassland owned by the Deseret and McIntyre ranches. It was started by a discarded cigarette butt on a roadside and burned a large portion of winter cattle range. He said damage appeared severe, but good spring moisture hastened re c ov e r y . St o c k i n g rat e s w e re reduced in the year after the fire to allow grass rejuvenation. FOR A RELATED STORY, SEE PAGE 42

Sask. soybean trial results exciting, but still pose risk Conditions ideal | Researcher says yields were promising last year, but frost is still a threat STORIES BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

MELVILLE, Sask. — The same conditions that encouraged the spread of sclerotinia in Saskatchewan canola crops last summer actually provided a boost to a small set of soybean trials in the province, says the research manager of the Indian Head Agricultural Research Foundation. However, while one year of soybean trial data are encouraging, Chris Holzapfel still believes it’s a risky crop to grow in southeastern Saskatchewan. “I don’t know if we can expect to do better than this in our environment, but this was certainly exciting to me,” he told producers at a recent seminar in Melville. Lots of heat and then a shot of moisture in late July boosted yields past 40 bushels per acre for some varieties from Manitoba’s NorthStar Genetics, which the organization began testing last summer. Results from commercial growers in the area varied from 20 bu. per acre to the higher numbers, he added. Holzapfel said improved genetics, which are better suited to a shorter season and cooler temperatures, as well as the crop’s success in Manitoba are driving interest from growers. NorthStar’s earliest maturing variety, Reston, is pegged at 109 days and

It should still be considered, in my opinion, a fairly risky crop. I wouldn’t seed the whole farm to soybeans at this time. CHRIS HOLZAPFEL INDIAN HEAD AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH FOUNDATION

was one of the standout performers of the handful tested. Plants are mature when 95 percent of pods have changed colour. Some of the company’s other varieties are listed with days to maturity up to 114 days. “(So it’s) still a fairly long season crop relative to our wheat and canola and barley, things like that,” he said. “But it has been achievable for the last couple of years.” Researchers in Indian Head seeded the soybeans at 200,000 seeds per acre into spring wheat stubble. While the results are encouraging, the risk of an early frost in late August or early September remains a significant threat to the crop. “It should still be considered, in my opinion, a fairly risky crop,” said Holzapfel. “I wouldn’t seed the whole farm to soybeans at this time.”

MELVILLE, Sask. — Agriculture Canada researchers did something unusual last year. They seeded a parcel of land to canola for the first time. The land near Indian Head, Sask., had been used for a field pea rotation study for the previous 17 years, growing rotations of continuous peas, wheat-peas or wheat-wheatpeas, researcher Guy Lafond told producers at a recent Indian Head Agricultural Research Foundation Seminar in Melville. The research centre started a new project last year, scrapping the pea rotations and adding canola into the mix. Pea fields are susceptible to sclerotinia, but the old rotations didn’t appear to influence the performance of last year’s canola crop. The resulting numbers are encouraging. Plant density was similar across all three sites — 65 to 73 plants per sq. metre — as were yields, which fell to slightly less than 35 bushels per acre. “Even though we had a continuous pea rotation for all of these years … it did not exacerbate the problems in terms of diseases in canola,” Lafond told producers. The plot will be seeded to wheat in the upcoming crop year and then canola the following year. “If you do include pulse crops in your rotation, you shouldn’t be

REAL Results! “We’ve used Awaken ST on our wheat for the past two years. We heard good things about it, so we put it in side-by-side trials on our farm. We saw an increase in yield by four bushels per acre with Awaken ST. It definitely paid for itself in a hurry. “We also noticed quicker emergence and the plant count was significantly higher in our wheat treated with Awaken ST than without. There were about three or four more plants per square foot. “Awaken ST is a good product. It definitely helps. For anyone who hasn’t used it before, I would recommend trying a couple jugs. Put it on a few acres and see the results for yourself. Especially if the season is cold and conditions aren’t ideal for germination. Awaken will give your crop the extra boost it needs and you will see a huge increase. “We will definitely be using Awaken ST again next year.”

Sask. runoff forecast ‘significant’ More snow than normal | Above average runoff expected, sparking flood concerns BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

It’s too soon to say flooding will be a problem for Saskatchewan farmers this year, but the first provincial spring forecast does predict above normal runoff. The Water Security Agency last week confirmed what most people see when they look outside: this winter’s snowfall has been significant. Most of Saskatchewan has seen more snow than usual, with the Moose Jaw, Regina and Yorkton areas receiving well above normal amounts.

The snow is also unusually wet. WSA spokesperson Patrick Boyle said snow pack water equivalent is the amount of water that would be created if all the snow on the ground melted. “We measure that remotely by satellites but we also do traditional onthe-ground sampling to verify the readings,” he said. The samples found that the estimated water equivalent across the entire agricultural zone is 200 percent of normal. Boyle said forecasters can’t yet say if this will contribute to flooding. That will depend on how much more



snow falls, the rate of melt closer to spring and rainfall during the runoff period. If precipitation during the next couple of months is normal, above average runoff is still expected. Widespread and serious flooding in 2010 and 2011 has people on guard. About 1,400 individuals, communities, rural municipalities and First Nations have since obtained more than $25 million in flood mitigation funding. “We’re probably in a better spot with investments in mitigation works,” Boyle said about the province’s ability to handle flooding again. As well, dry conditions last fall should mean the soil is able to absorb at least some of the melt. The agency will produce another more detailed runoff forecast in early March. Meanwhile, as of Feb. 1, the snow pack in the headwaters of the North Saskatchewan River is slightly below normal and in the headwaters of the Oldman River basin is slightly above normal. Environment Canada is forecasting near normal precipitation in February, March and April for most of the Prairies except Manitoba, where above nor mal precipitation is expected for much of the province outside the far south.

SNOW FACTS How is snowfall measured? • Environment Canada staff use instruments such as the nipher snow gauge or the Geonor bucket to capture snow, measure its water content and report the findings to a satellite network. Water equivalent measurements are reported (in millimetres) instead of snow because equal amounts of snow can hold differing amounts of water, depending on relative humidity and other factors. • Automatic reporting stations are sometimes also equipped with a snow depth sensor. The sensor aims a high-frequency pulse at the ground, which bounces back when it strikes the surface of the snow. A computer calculates the snow depth using the time it takes for the pulse to return to the sensor. Using this data, meteorologists can determine the change in snowfall from day to day and also how much snow has accumulated at each station. The map on this page shows normal water equivalents. Do you know what’s normal for your area? These are some station averages from Environment Canada for November through January (in mm): • Brooks, Alta. 48.3 • Coronation, Alta. 49.1 • High Level, Alta. 68.6 • Medicine Hat, Alta. 44.2 • Peace River, Alta. 63.3 • Vegreville, Alta. 41.1

New forage variety intended to reduce bloat in cattle Grows with alfalfa | Agriculture Canada develops new sainfoin cultivar that reduces gas buildup seen in cattle foraging alfalfa BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

A new forage variety may reduce the threat of bloat in cattle that graze alfalfa. Mountainview, a sainfoin cultivar developed by Agriculture Canada forage breeder Surya Acharya, is a perennial that can be seeded with alfalfa and will prevent bloat in grazing cattle. Acharya announced the new variety Feb. 5 at the Alberta Forage Industry Network’s annual meeting in Ponoka, Alta. In a later interview, he said development of the sainfoin took about 15 years, the last four of which involved field testing to gauge the crop’s ability to prevent bloat and survive in mixed stands. “We forage breeders are ver y patient people,” Acharya said with a laugh about work he started in 1999 on the variety. “I am very much pleased with it, particularly in Lethbridge. All the selections were done here so naturally it did remarkably well here.” Bloat can be a serious problem for cattle grazing alfalfa. It is a highly nutritious feed that is quickly digested, but ingestion of large amounts can lead to fatal gas buildup. That threat can limit its use. Sainfoin is a non-bloating forage. When seeded with alfalfa, cattle ingest a mixture and the bloat threat is reduced. Don McLennan, past chair of the forage network, said Mountainview is one of the most exciting research results in the industry in recent years. “It has the potential to have a very significant impact on both the forage and livestock industry in Western Canada and maybe even beyond because of the characteristics that Surya has been able to build into this new variety.”

He said alfalfa has excellent traits for putting pounds on cattle, but graziers have to be careful. “The fear of bloat can take away all those positives in a big hurry.” However, he said adding sainfoin to the grazing mix can reduce bloat risk while maintaining feed value. Acharya said Mountainview is truly one of a kind. Most sainfoins do not regrow well after grazing or cutting for hay, but this one has shown its ability to regrow and retain biomass into its fourth year. “Last year we had more than 30 percent still there. Thirty percent of the biomass was still sainfoin, but this year we will see what it has done.” Mountainview outyielded the check variety, Nova, by 22 to 42 percent in pure stands and by 30 to 39 percent in mixed stands with alfalfa. It also reaches flowering 10 days before Nova and has a heavier seed weight. Acharya said bloat prevention was the main focus of cultivar development, so he did not select for yield. That is why he was pleasantly surprised at Mountainview’s continued yield even after three or four cuts. Palatability also rates well, according to grazing observations. “It is as palatable or even better sometimes than alfalfa because it has a hollow stem. It does not have a solid stem so the animals can eat the whole thing.” Acharya said cattle seem to be selecting sainfoin over alfalfa in initial grazing, which bodes well for bloat prevention and has alleviated fears that the crop’s bitter tannins would inhibit grazing. He said Mountainview has a sweeter flower than alfalfa, and blossoms are more attractive than alfalfa for bees. He estimates a stand of 10 to 15 percent sainfoin would be enough for bloat prevention, although a higher

percentage might bring peace of mind in patchy forage stands. The cultivar was tested under dryland and irrigated pasture conditions in the Lethbridge area, and at Saskatoon and Swift Current, Sask. Breeder seed will be produced at Agriculture Canada’s Indian Head facility and a distribution company will be selected soon. Mountainview seed is expected to be available for 2015 planting. McLennan said that’s longer than forage producers would like, now that they’ve heard about its potential. “Like a lot of others, I can hardly wait.” Acharya said he and his team will be watching for disease issues once Mountainview is seeded over a wider geographic area and in rotation with other crops. None have arisen in field trials, but disease pressure from preceding crops might bring some to light. The forage researcher’s next focus is on an alfalfa variety that will grow in acidic soil. He expects to apply for registration soon.

Sask. shakes up recycling plan Responsibility shifts to industry | Recycling program ready to launch in 2014 across province BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Saskatchewan should have a provincewide multi-material recycling program by early next year. The government recently approved regulations regarding household packaging and paper stewardship. The regulations allow an industry group known as Multi-Material Stewardship Western Inc. to now develop the recycling program for printed paper, newspaper, cardboard, plastic, metal and glass packaging. Marlon Killaby, manager of waste stewardship and recycling with the provincial environment department, said MMSW will work with stakeholders and municipalities to come up with a business plan that sets out what industry will pay to fund the program and how much municipalities will be reimbursed. MMSW is a non-profit industry organization representing the industries that produce the products included in the regulations. It will present Saskatchewan environment minister Ken Cheveldayoff with the plan on or before Aug. 6. “Once that plan has been approved, the expectation is the ministry will work with municipalities across the province to implement

it,” Killaby said. “We don’t expect anything to be fully implemented provincewide until the early part of 2014.” There are already 116 communities that offer recycling programs, along with 13 regional waste management authorities that include another 209 municipalities. The new program shifts responsibility for managing and financing recycling programs from the municipalities to industry and consumers. The industries under the regulations will have to either participate in the program that MMSW develops or operate their own collection and recycling programs. Currently, communities that offer recycling are paying the entire cost. Killaby said the program, once established, will pay up to 75 percent of the cost. Communities have the option to participate in recycling collection. In cases where the community chooses not to participate, industry will have to offer some alternative for collection. Communities also have to decide the type of collection system that works for them — curbside pickup or a central depot. A highly efficient curbside program even in a small place could collect more tonnes of material

than a central depot system. He said waste haulers have also said that having curbside pickup in small towns is effective. “They can go from small community to small community with one truck and compress the material,” he said. Rural residents typically have access to central depot bins in nearby communities, and that may continue. Joanne Fedyk, executive director of the Saskatchewan Waste Reduction Council, said she was glad to finally see the regulations in place after consultation began seven years ago. She said recycling programs across the province should be more consistent as a result. The SWRC wanted 100 percent of the costs funded by industry, not 75 percent, but she said the shift will still help more recycling take place. The province estimates that 40 percent of household waste could be recycled. Fedyk noted the regulations include most of the products that are currently being collected by municipalities so there won’t be a significant mind shift for consumers. On the other hand, paper recycling has been available for years yet large amounts of paper products are still among the least recycled. And Fedyk said there is no pro-

gram at all for the small yet dangerous segment of household hazardous waste so more recycling efforts are still needed. The move to an industry-funded model is not unique. Manitoba, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec and some of the Atlantic provinces have such programs. Industry’s costs will be determined as the business plan is developed, Killaby said, but are expected to be minimal and charged back to the consumer. Other industries that already operate programs similar to this include scrap tires, electronics, used oil and waste paint. Consumers pay an environmental handling fee at point of sale, and the fee is used to manage the recycling program. Cheveldayoff said expanded recycling opportunities will extend landfill life, improve the environment and create new business and employment opportunities. In the last three years, Saskatchewan has provided $6.5 million in bridge funding to municipalities to maintain their recycling programs as the MMRP regulations were being developed. The MMRP will not replace the SARCAN beverage container collection program.

Women bring different strengths to the job, says one RCMP officer BY KAREN MORRISON SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The RCMP is on the lookout for a few good women. They currently account for 20 percent of its workforce of 19,000 members, a number that Const. Amy Forbes of RCMP Recr uiting in Saskatoon wants to see increase through her efforts. “At the RCMP, we hire people that represent the people that we serve,” she said, noting newly hired officers come from across the country. “That’s part of what makes the RCMP diverse. Everybody has different life experiences they bring to the table and we’re all able to work together.” A two-hour women in policing event held this month at the University of Saskatchewan presented information about 150 different jobs in the force and allowed female officers to describe their experiences. Forbes spent four years in the fivemember detachment at Wynyard, Sask., before moving to her current position last November. Living in rural and remote areas is a part of the job, she said. “You need to be prepared for life adjustments such as that,” said Forbes, who came from Halifax, N.S. She made the adjustment from urban to rural life, where she was far removed from friends and family, by getting involved locally. “In this job, you have to get out in the community,” she said. Twenty-four weeks of intensive training were followed by six months of working alongside a senior officer. “We work as a team, so if there was something I didn’t know, there’s lots of people to ask,” she said. Forbes conceded females were once not welcome in the RCMP and these attitudes still persist in certain segments of society. Women may not be as physically strong as men but bring different strengths to the job, she said. “Females are more emotional. That side may aid them in emotional situations at a time when empathy is required,” said Forbes. For her, the most challenging part of the job has been dealing with tragedies, particularly those involving children. “It’s been very hard,” she said, noting officers are trained to deal with such events and keep their emotions in check. They also engage in debriefing sessions and seek support from co-workers, friends and family. The reward comes from helping people, the reason Forbes joined. “I wanted to make a difference in somebody’s life and that has happened a few times,” she said. For more information, visit www.

Juggling cattle operation with family a balancing act Purebred and commercial herd | Couple sees pros and cons of expansion BY WILLIAM DEKAY SASKATOON NEWSROOM

PONTEIX, Sask. — It’s a busy time for Ross and Tara Davidson of Lonesome Dove Ranch. Calves are born daily, catalogues are in the mail for their March 2 bull sale and finishing touches on the new sale barn are keeping Ross up at night. Arms are also full on the home front. Twin boys Cameron and Ash are turning three and daughter Jaime arrived two months ago. Balancing tasks is nothing new for the husband and wife ranching duo, who married in 2005 and celebrated in the old barn on their newly purchased farm. “Our moms and grandmas scrubbed and vacuumed the loft. You could lick the floor,” said Ross. “We got married at my parent’s farm and then crammed 350 of our closest friends upstairs in the barn loft. It was fun. The barn was shaking that night,” said Tara. “That’s why we moved here was because of the barn,” said Tara of the 1927 barn.

After adding red and green tin to the barn and securing water and power, the couple moved a house onto the property. They began building corrals for a burgeoning cattle herd and later planted a shelter belt of trees around the yard site. They chose Lonesome Dove as a ranch name because of a much loved book read by Tara during her agriculture studies at the University of Saskatchewan. “We get a lot of comments that it’s a real distinctive name and it’s easy to remember,” she said. Building a herd in the mid-2000s in the midst of the BSE crisis and deflated cattle prices proved both a challenge and oppor tunity for the 22-year-old newlyweds. “We were starting but it took a lot of guts because lenders aren’t exactly wanting to give you money,” said Tara. “You need to have a strategy and a business plan. We grew but we grew gradually. We built momentum as we went. The more we grow, the easier it is to get financial backing from our

lenders,” said Ross. Off-farm jobs helped them increase their savings and qualify for bank loans. “We both worked stupid long hours at our off-farm jobs. Everybody (loan managers) wanted to see an off-farm income,” said Tara. Today, they manage about 350 head. They say Gelbvieh cows are maternal, which complements any breed and their growing commercial herd. “We’ll be calving out over 300 head, roughly 200 Gelbvieh commercial and 100 purebred Gelbviehs,” said Ross. During the March bull sale, they will sell their yearling bulls to a host of buyers from across North America. For the sale, they team up with Ross’s parents, Eileen and Vernon, at Davidson Gelbviehs. Although he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of grain farming one day, Ross conceded their plate is full with the cattle. “It’s hard to focus and do a good job for ourselves and be in both. Right now, we’re trying to do a good job on both ends, the purebred and commercial. We’re splitting our time there,” he said. Both are hesitant to expand too quickly. “Right now, I want to expand my land base more, but it has to be feasible. It has to work somehow so you just can’t go out and do it just because that’s the thing to be doing.… A little less sky juice (rain) and interest rates going up and it’ll change this country in a hurry,” he said. Tara said the pair strikes a good balance. “Our friends kind of giggle because I’m the brakes of our operation and Ross is more of the throttle of our operation. We kind of balance each other out quite well. “We’re lucky to be doing what we do. We love ranching and we’re just really lucky to have a job that we can be together at and raise our kids at. They love to be outside and when they’re not outside doing ranch stuff, they’re inside playing ranch stuff.”




Robot designers hope to claim international prize Globe hopping | After topping competitors in Brazil, Yorkton, Sask., students plan trip to Germany to bring home gold medal BY CALVIN DANIELS FREELANCE WRITER

YORKTON, Sask. — A high school robotics team from Yorkton Regional High School is taking its talents to the world stage. Having topped the Skills Canada competition in robotics for Saskatchewan in 2011, the Yorkton Regional High School team moved on to win the national titles, and that earned them a trip to the biannual world competition in Germany this July. A four-member team competed in the Canadian events last year, but only two-member teams get to attend the World Skills International Leipzig 2013 event. Bo Chiasson and Jayden Leister will represent YRHS. Taylor Pachal graduated from high school and Rachael Machnee is enrolled in school in Britain. At the world event, teams from 20 countries will compete July 2-7. Teacher adviser Kevin Chiasson said his hopes for Germany are “to do the best we can” and at least garner a medal of excellence. Chiasson said that the competition is scored out of 1,000, with teams scoring 500 or more points receiving the medal of excellence. An Ontario team earned that in 2011 when they finished seventh. Leister is shooting for the top. “It’s to win,” he said. Chiasson added, “Gold would be amazing. I think we can do it.” Leister said the key to success is to spend the next four months working on design and robot operation.

A robot built by Chiasson and Leister will need to assemble a wooden man at an upcoming competition in Germany.

There’s lots of analyzing and thinking out of the box. BO CHIASSON YORKTON, SASK. STUDENT

Chiasson said the world event offers new challenges, with greater reliance on programming than in past. “The building part is more interesting,” he said, conceding programming is not his particular strength Leister said having the main robotic chassis provided through the world event makes the process different than having to cobble a robot together for the events leading up to worlds. “I kind of liked the idea of scrounging for stuff,” he said, noting the result was more personal. The team recently attended the World Americas event in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and emerged winners against competitors from Brazil, Colombia, Chile and Uruguay. “To be honest, we were shocked,” said Chiasson. Chiasson said the experience in Brazil was amazing. “I knew we had a chance,” he said. Leister said the extracurricular activity involves much work. “It’s been non-stop working since provincials. Even before that, we were working hard,” he said. Leister said the world robotics event will look good on a resume. “I’ve got to keep this in mind,” he said. Chiasson said competitions at worlds revolve around students having to construct and program robots to carry out a predetermined task. As an example, he said students have to design a robotic arm and install it on a provided platform unit. They then have to program the unit so that they can operate it to pick up a series of wooden body parts and construct a wooden man model. “It’s like a game,” he said, adding the process forces participants to work on their problem-solving skills. “There’s lots of analyzing and thinking out of the box.” Chiasson said they are close to having the robotic arm built, which allows the team a few months of practice to manoeuvre the robot to complete its task. “You have to be comfortable with the controls,” he said, noting there is a need to be fast and accurate to score well. The interest in robotics is extending to the classroom with three full classes of Grade 9 electrical/robotics and YRHS offering Grade 10 robotics and developing a Grade 11 curriculum for the fall.

Everything’s coming up birds on Chaplin Lake shores TALES FROM THE ROAD



mesmerizing blur of wings descends on brilliant white banks as visitors from as far away as South America drop in for a bite to eat. The tasty buffet served up on the shores of Chaplin Lake makes this the ideal stopover for hundreds of thousands of shorebirds making epic journeys from southern wintering grounds to as far as the high Arctic where many nest. Enterprising folks in the adjoining town of Chaplin, Sask., have successfully capitalized on this phenomenon, turning it into a must stop for human travellers as well. Chaplin Lake sprawls along the Trans-Canada Highway, roughly halfway between Moose Jaw and Swift Current, Sask. The second largest saline lake in Canada, its shallow water and mudflats hold the ideal smorgasbord of aquatic insects and crustaceans that shorebirds need to fuel up for their long travels. The Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network, which recognizes important wetlands throughout the Americas, named Chaplin Lake of hemispheric significance. This is one of only three places in Canada with that high a designation, the other two being the Bay of Fundy and the Fraser River Estuary. International recognition of not only Chaplin Lake but also of the larger wetland complex, including nearby Reed Lake and Old Wives Lake, provided the impetus for tourism development. The town built the Chaplin Nature Centre beside the highway. And to

Potential hot spots include south of town where Highway 58 cuts through wetlands or the viewing tower overlooking Reed Lake, a short drive west along the Trans-Canada Highway. The best option is to take the guided tour run by the nature centre. You travel along dikes crossing Chaplin Lake that are not open to the general public, getting close to wildlife. Bird numbers can be astounding, with as many as 73,000 counted in one day. More than 30 migrating shorebird species include dowitchers, ruddy turnstones, red-necked phalaropes, red knots, black-bellied plovers and various sandpipers. Feeding dowitchers are like a bunch of tiny sewing machines, jabbing their needle-sharp bills into the shallow water so rapidly that their heads become a blur. The highlight is undoubtedly the

huge flocks of sanderlings, with oneday estimates topping 55,000. It is thought that up to half the world’s sanderlings stop here to refuel on their way to the Arctic. Seeing them in flight is like watching an aerial ballet as large flocks dart around in unison, abruptly changing direction with choreographed precision. They are so densely grouped that you wonder why they don’t run into each other. Spring is prime time to visit. Different shorebirds arrive at different times between late April and early June. Sanderling numbers usually peak around the end of May, although this could vary with weather conditions and water levels.

Besides migrants, this is also prime territory for resident shorebirds such as willets, Wilson’s phalaropes and elegant, colourful American avocets. Chaplin is the best place we know of to get close to endangered piping plovers. Resident birds stay throughout the spring and summer, so there’s always something to see. The nature centre opens around mid-May, with tours running until late August. The annual Chaplin Shorebird Festival takes place during the second weekend in June. For more information, contact www.

Identify the competition, and then make the house look better than others on the market. Care and attention to details will impress potential buyers and, if the house is move in ready, that means less work for them and possibly a better offer for you. Start outside by putting everything in order and keep it that way for showings. Organize your garden shed, garage and outbuildings. Park machinery and implements neatly and repair fences, gates and hinges. Touch up paint on the house and declutter the garage to make it appear as large as possible. Keep the grass cut, the weeds pulled and the snow shovelled. For the inside of the house, declutter and get rid of unnecessary stuff. If the furnishings are too big or abundant for the space, downsize. The corners of the room need to be seen, so remove extra or oversized plants, fans, gym equipment, chairs and tables. Don’t hide damage to flooring, countertops, walls or other permanent fixtures. Reveal, don’t conceal, problem areas and be sure to reflect deficiencies and necessary repairs in the list price. Paint touchups are a cheap way to make things look better. Fix dripping taps and leaky toilets. Not doing this will make the prospective purchaser

think that you do not look after the home properly. Clear entry areas of extra coats, boots and shoes. Box everything that you won’t need before the move. It is not a good idea to fill the basement with boxes because buyers want to inspect the basement. Crammed spaces give viewers the perception that there is not enough storage space and that the house is bursting at the seams. Your home may feel barren to you but the buyers will spend more time in a neat and tidy home. When the house is on the market, it has to be clean and ready for showing at a moment’s notice. Countertops must be washed, bathrooms should sparkle and clean bedding and curtains should be used. It means vacuuming, sweeping and washing floors and eliminating soap scum in the bathtub and stains in the toilets. Scrub the kitchen, paying special attention to the drawers, dishwasher, fridge and stove. Shine the windows, remove ash from the fireplace and get rid of carpet stains. Remove dying plants, throw rugs and family photos. Store toothbrushes and makeup out of sight, clear nightstands and dressers and tidy the laundry room. Potential buyers want to know exactly how many bedrooms are available so using a room for storage will affect their perception of the house. Rent storage space off site if necessary. Rearrange furniture to create an airy, inviting space. Add seasonal touches if desired and ensure burned out light bulbs are replaced. Have proper ventilation and fresh air and keep the home at a comfortable temperature. Don’t leave dated or worn fixtures for the next owner to replace. The best way to increase value is to implement periodic upgrades of light fixtures, taps and faucets, door and cabinet hardware and window treatments.

Bathrooms should be in show home condition. Buy a new shower curtain and towels if necessary. Add decorative soaps and candles. Some potential buyers are really averse to animals. If you have pets, vacuum daily to keep the hair under control and crate them or remove

them from the property while it is being shown. Don’t forget about safety and security. Gun collections present a major safety hazard. Pack them away along with precious items like jewelry. Plan ahead if selling this spring and

Managing resistance before resistance manages you.


estern Canadian farmers continue to benefit from tools such as glyphosate for non-crop weed control practices including pre-seed, chemfallow and post-harvest herbicide applications. Those applications are an important tool in reducing weed competition for moisture and nutrients, and – particularly for pre-seed applications – can help guarantee the best start for a new crop.

EFFECTIVE NON-CROP USE OF GROUP 2 HERBICIDES Pre-seed weed control is a practice that began in cereal crops, and is increasingly popular as an increasing number of Western Canadian farmers adopt minimum tillage practices.

But in recent years, growers have seen an increase in the number of documented cases of weed resistance in Western Canada, proving glyphosate alone can no longer do the job. Now, researchers suggest that mixing herbicides with multiple modes of action and using them in the same spray will go a long way in helping to control glyphosate-resistant weeds, and preventing new herbicide-resistant weeds from developing.

UNDERSTANDING RESISTANCE Weeds become resistant when they’ve had too much of a good thing. Practices and crops that work well one year are less effective in consecutive years, if there’s no break in routine. That’s why healthy rotation – of crop types, practices and herbicides – is essential. It’s becoming increasingly clear that using glyphosate alone will not control glyphosate-resistant kochia and may increase the risk of glyphosate-resistance occurring in other weed species in the future. With the emergence of Roundup Ready® volunteers, as well as hard-to-kill weeds that are not controlled by glyphosate alone, growers have found that including an add-in like DuPont™ Express® brand herbicide helps to control these weeds and manage resistance.

MANAGING RESISTANCE Crop rotation Ideally, any healthy field will have a rotation of at least three crop types. Research suggests it is equally important to incorporate a host of other natural methods of weed control such as higher seeding rates, the use of clean seed, mowing out suspected resistant weed patches before they go to seed and using herbicides according to label directions.

Utilizing multiple modes of action Herbicides are categorized into 17 different groups according to how they target a weed. For example, Sulfonylurea (member of Group 2) herbicides control weeds by inhibiting the enzyme acetolactate synthase, which is essential to their growth. “If at all possible, producers should use mixtures of herbicides that use multiple modes of action in the seeding year,” says Ken Sapsford, University of Saskatchewan. “It’s one further step to help stop resistance from developing.” Group 2 herbicides are a highly effective way to control weeds – but like other herbicide groups they need to be used appropriately, and utilized with herbicides from other groups in the same spray to help manage resistance.

In spring, particularly if the crop rotation included a crop such as RR canola, DuPont scientists recommend a pre-plant/burndown herbicide treatment such as Express® brands (Group 2) or PrecisionPac® NC-00439 or NC-0050 (Group 2) as an add-in with glyphosate to take advantage of multiple modes of action. Because both Group 2 and Group 9 herbicides have activity on many of the same weeds, growers automatically get multiple modes of action where they need it most. In certain areas, adding a third mode of action such as dicamba, 2,4-D or MCPA (Group 4) is advisable, and can be recommended by an agronomist. “We know that if we control those weeds early with a burn-off and then come in and seed, controlling those weeds and conserving moisture is the best option,” says Ken Sapsford, University of Saskatchewan. The Express® brands significantly improve control of tough weeds such as dandelion and narrow-leaved hawk’s beard in a pre-seed burn-off or post-harvest burndown. Not only will growers improve their weed control but they will also be hitting weeds with actives from two different groups to help manage weed resistance.

THE RACE IS ON The race is on among the world’s leading crop protection companies to tackle the development of weed resistance, and DuPont Crop Protection is committed to working with growers and retailers on solutions that protect the use of all the best tools. A tank mix of Express® brand herbicides plus glyphosate provides multiple modes of action, allows for the sequential application of a different mode if needed, and gives a crop a running start for a productive growing season. DuPont will continue to promote the use of multiple modes of action in a single spray, because it is an effective way to control problem weeds. DuPont is also committed to designing single and multiple active ingredient products with efficacious use rates and realistic performance claims – and DuPont is nimble enough to meet specific field needs and adjust recommendations based on what’s going on in the field.







Listening will help friend deal with terminal illness SPEAKING OF LIFE



I was told last week that my best friend has a neurological tumour. Her oncologist expects her to live no more than 12 months, and she most likely will die within six. My problem is that I do not know what to say to her. I have picked up the phone a number of times to call

but I don’t make the call. I hang up the phone before I have finished dialing. Do you have any ideas that might help me figure out what to say to my friend?


People who are terminally ill are people first and terminally ill second. They deserve to be treated with the same dignity and respect as before they were diagnosed. We tend to deny the inevitability of death. People who are terminally ill are either shifted to hospitals or palliative care units where they are out of sight or they are restricted to their homes and often not included in community activities. That is not respectful. Respect begins with honesty. Be as

honest as you can with your friend. That means telling her how confused and inadequate you feel. Chances are that she feels awkward also. The more that the two of you are frank with each other, the better the chances are that you will be able to comfort and encourage her through her final months. The key to respect is listening. Hopefully you will spend considerably more time listening than talking to your friend. Sometimes that means listening in silence. Some of our most profound moments in relationships come in the stillness of the night, when being together supersedes the need to talk. If your friend needs or wants to

talk, she will do so. If she needs to bury herself in her own thoughts, let her. Your friend needs to know how important she has been to you and that she will always be part of your memory. The more that you are able to be with your friend at this moment in her life, the more you will be able to resolve your own crisis of mortality when your moment comes. Don’t be afraid to appreciate the lessons she is sharing with you and recognize them as among the most meaningful moments in your life. Jacklin Andrews is a family counsellor from Saskatchewan.

Treating eye infections HEALTH CLINIC



I had a case of pink eye, or that is what I thought it was because my eyes suddenly became red, watery and itchy and the eyelids were stuck together in the mornings. My doctor said it was acute conjunctivitis and it would clear up on its own in a few days. It did but I wonder why he did not suggest any antibiotic eye ointment like Polysporin?

A: Thinking about trying something new this year?


The doctor probably thought the infection was from a virus rather than a bacterium. Antibiotics would not help in this case. Most cases of conjunctivitis or pink eye are due to the same virus, the adenovirus, which causes the common cold. Even in bacterial cases, about two-thirds of them clear up without treatment in a few days. Doctors are reluctant to prescribe unnecessary antibiotics because overuse has been associated with the emergence of more treatment resistant bugs. Bacterial conjunctivitis causes a thick, purulent, green or yellow discharge and can be due to Staph. aureus, Strep. pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae or M. catarrhalis. Some cases may require treatment. You can try over-the-counter ointment such as Polysporin or drops that contain the antibiotics Gramicidin and Bacitracin, or you can get prescription antibiotics from your family doctor. Treatment lessens the length of suffering, prevents complications such as scarring and limits the spread of infection to other people. The drops or ointments are generally applied for seven days, several times a day.

There are advertisements on TV making fun of men who have colds. I have found that my husband seems to get more severe symptoms than I do when he has a cold or flu and he does complain a lot. Is this a difference in temperament or do men really suffer more than women?


Amanda Ellison, author of Getting Your Head Around the Brain and a senior lecturer in neuroscience at Durham University, has discovered that men suffer more than women when they have colds and flu. Part of the brain regulates body temperature. Ellison said it can be influenced by the male hormone testosterone and is larger in men than women. She thinks this could be the reason that men tend to have a higher fever when they get a cold. The increased temperature is one way in which the body fights and kills the viruses, so men may suffer more but get over the illness more quickly than women.

Sugar beet growers looking to expand Seeking diversity | Growers’ association spending money to identify new markets BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Alberta sugar beet growers are exploring other uses for their crop besides sugar in all its forms. The grower group has contracted North Vancouver based S2G BioChem to explore using sugar beets to produce bio-glycol, a derivative that can replace petrochemicals in the making of plastics, fibres, resins and biofuel. A $600,000 contribution from the federal government, announced at the Alberta Sugar Beet Growers’ annual meeting Feb. 13 by Medicine Hat MP LaVar Payne, will take it further down the exploratory path. Association president Rob Boras said another market for sugar beets would make the industry more viable in the future. As it stands, all sugar beet production is contracted to Lantic Sugar, which operates a plant in Taber, Alta. The number of contracted acres has been declining in recent years: from 36,000 several years ago to 30,000 last year and the next two years. “We’ve been able to produce good quality crops. Sometimes that’s your downfall. If you create the volume and you’re serving a limited market, you do it with less acres,� Boras said. “It’s not healthy for the overall industry. When we’re trying to attract new younger growers, at this level there’s no room for them to come in. What we’re looking at is an expansion of the sugar beet growing part of it.�

as suppliers, investors and owners. The initial stages of research look promising, he said, and are expected to be completed this fall, at which point decisions can be made about viability of a biochemical plant, capital investment and next steps. Federal funds were channelled through the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program.

We’ve been able to produce some good crops. Sometimes that’s your downfall. ROB BORAS ALBERTA SUGAR BEET GROWERS

Sugar from the Alberta crop is processed and sold by Lantic, which supplies Western Canada’s needs with some left over for export. There doesn’t appear to be a growing demand for sugar. “It’s virtually stagnant, the growth in that. The consumption is pretty well straight line,� said Boras. “It’s pretty well capped at roughly 100,000 tons per year that we can fill, and from there, what do you do?� Boras said beet production for sugar will continue even if diversification efforts come to fruition, but another production stream would complement the existing industry. “It doesn’t hurt to have more than one processor in the business. As we can see in the potato business, with McCain’s and Lamb Weston, it is a very healthy industry because there are two players.� A plant producing glycol and other products would also have the advantage of being “green� and renewable, while avoiding the food versus fuel debate. Boras foresees a plant that would have direct grower involvement

Book traces history of Quarter horse Quarter horse association finds information in decades-old Stud Book

Quarter horses were denied true breed status under Canadian livestock rules 25 years ago and historical information and records were lost. | FILE PHOTO


The Canadian Quarter Horse Association is trying to reconstruct its history. That task became slightly easier Feb. 7 when it reacquired a copy of the 1965 CQHA Stud Book, the first one published by the organization. “We didn’t have access to this information prior to the book coming into our possession, so that was really helpful to us,” said Marnie Somers, the association’s chair of membership and communications. “Someone approached one of our directors and said they had this book for sale and asked if we were interested before they put it on eBay. It’s the only one that we know of, so we jumped on it.” The association met the seller’s price and is now hoping people will come forward with stud books from other years so it can compile a more complete history. The association was formed in 1957 and put out its first stud book in 1965. It was a record of breeding horses, association directors, members and other information. Somers said efforts to create an official Canadian registry for Quarter horses floundered in 1988 when the breed was refused true breed status under Canadian livestock regulations because Quarter horses have Thoroughbred bloodlines. “Then people lost interest in trying to go that route,” said Somers. Instead, horse owners and breeders registered their animals with the American Quarter Horse Association, which was established in 1940. It is the largest official breed registry in the world with five million animals. Canadians continue to use that registry and the AQHA stud books, as do other countries. Somers said there are 240,000 Quarter horses in Canada. The CQHA was resurrected in 2000, but records from its earlier incarnation were lost with the passage of time. “We just moved forward from there. We’ve tried to contact some of the pioneers, but no one seems to have very much information,” she said. The value of the 1965 CQHA stud book is mostly historical. The horses listed in it are long gone, but some of their bloodlines likely live on. “There will be some there that we can trace that we were never able to trace before,” Somers said. “We do get inquiries from members that want to find out about the history of the horse they own now. At least now that we have the stud book available, we can direct them to there.” The book has been digitized and can be found on the association’s website at

Somers said the association executive isn’t sure how many stud books were published in earlier years, but it hopes more will reappear.

CQHA president Haidee Landry plans to make history compilation a pet project this year, said Somers. Landry was unavailable for com-

ment at press time. The 1965 stud book constitutes a good start to the process, she added. “We’ve got the first piece of the

puzzle. We were quite pleased to get our hands on the book and we’re hoping … people will step forward with additional years worth of them.”

Gene discovery fails to wow Canadian plant breeder Crop yields | Alberta Agriculture official skeptical that U.S. researchers can improve efficiency of photosynthesis in C3 plants, including barley BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Researchers at Cornell University believe they have found a gene that will increase crop yields by 50 percent. The “scarecrow” gene controls a leaf structure that will lead to more efficient photosynthesis. Plants use two methods of photosynthesis: C3 in plants like barley and rice and C4 in plants like sugar cane and corn. With the discovery of the gene, researchers hope to be able to transfer the more efficient photosynthesis technology from C4 crops to C3 crops. The finding “provides a clue as to how this whole anatomical key is regulated,” said Robert Turgeon, professor of plant biology at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Farmers could grow wheat and rice in hotter, drier environments with less fertilizer and possibly increase yields if C4 photosynthesis is successfully transferred to C3 plants, he said.


American researchers claim they have discovered a gene that could make it possible to grow crops such as barley more efficiently. | FILE PHOTO

However, Jim Helm, plant breeder and head of research at Alberta Agriculture’s field crops branch in Lacombe, Alta., said just because

researchers have discovered something doesn’t mean it’s going to be adopted. “If you go back 50 years ago, they found the holy grail of having wheat fix its own nitrogen. Did they ever do it? Fifty years later and it’s never been done,” he said. It’s the same with C3 and C4 crops, he added. The more efficient C4 crops are warm season crops that require more heat and water. “This is not something that has been discussed just recently. I remember taking a class on this 45 years ago and whether or not we could actually change C3 crops to C4 crops. There is nothing new under the sun,” said Helm. “Even if you could do this, where’s the water? How are you going to grow it on the prairies of Saskatchewan and Alberta without that extra water and that extra heat.… This is another one of those things that gets people excited and gets them money and press and more money and hopefully five years down the road everyone forgets they made a fool of themselves.”

Buffer crop keeps GMOs out of organic corn Gene blocking system | The hybrid corn protects a field from GMO drift BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

GUELPH, Ont. — A new corn variety may provide organic growers exactly what they need: a buffer zone between fields of genetically modified and organic corn. The buffer is a genetic advancement that creates a technological barrier between corn fields. The hybrid, known as PuraMaize, features a gene blocking system that solves the problem of GM corn pollen drifting onto corn plants in adjacent organic fields. “Grain buyers want assurance that grain will be free from GMO contamination, and PuraMaize offers just that,” Maury Johnson, owner of Blue River Hybrids, an organic seed dealer in Kelley, Iowa, said in a statement.


“PuraMaize is highly effective in protecting corn from GMO field drift… (so) grain farmers and buyers have a powerful new tool at their disposal for preserving non-GMO integrity.” Hoegemeyer Hybrids of Nebraska patented the PuraMaize technology several years ago. For now, Blue River Hybrids is the only U.S. company licensed to distribute the hybrid, which was developed through conventional corn breeding. A company fact sheet said PuraMaize contains genes known as gametophyte factors. A gene, commonly known as GA1S, preferentially selects pollen from corn plants with the same genotype, which obstructs pollination drift from other corn hybrids. Organic growers need this technology because GM contamination is a challenge and will soon become a larger problem in North America. Dow AgroSciences, Monsanto and Bayer are expected to release corn, soybeans and other crops with stacked herbicide tolerance over the next few years. The introduction of new herbicide tolerant traits will increase the amount of GMOs in fields across the United States and Canada, which will increase the risk of GMO contamination in organic crops. Several organic advocates suggested at the Guelph Organic Conference in early February that the federal


government should intervene. They said that in an ideal world, conventional growers should have to establish buffer zones on the edges of their fields to prevent pollen drift into organic fields. However, Tom Manley, owner of Homestead Organics, a farm supply and advisory service near Cornwall, Ont., said such a policy is an organic pipe dream. Pierre Lemieux, parliamentary sector for agriculture minister Gerry Ritz, has made it clear that he doesn’t think GMOs are a public risk, Manley said at the Guelph meeting. If the government says GMOs aren’t a contaminant and aren’t a threat to the public, then the organic sector can’t be asking for a policy to prevent GMO contamination, he added. “So there’s just no air in the balloon at all.” Organic growers may have to instead rely on technological solutions such as PuraMaize. Blue River Hybrids sold PuraMaize for the first time last year. Producers in 11 states planted the corn variety and grower response has been positive, said Erika Brodersen, marketing manager for Blue River Hybrids. “We’ve got people from Iowa to Maryland that are planting PuraMaize,” she said. The company sells PuraMaize in Canada through a distributor in Ontario. Last year was a tough summer for corn growers in many regions of the U.S., but the PuraMaize hybrid performed fairly well, Brodersen said. “As far as the yield, we’re seeing comparable yields comparable to other products (organic corn varieties).” In addition, independent testing either didn’t detect GMOs in PuraMaize corn grown last year or detected GMO levels of less than 0.05 percent. PuraMaize is the first corn hybrid to reach the commercial phase, but other entrepreneurs are developing similar technologies. As reported in the Organic & NonGMO Report, Frank Kutka, a North Dakota State University corn breeder, is developing varieties called “organic ready,” which recognizes its own pollen and rejects pollen from other corn hybrids.

Organic growers welcome the PuraMaize blocking technology to prevent GM contamination. |







Dairy leader gloomy on WTO progress New director general | DFC president says countries are choosing regional and bilateral deals BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

As a longtime British Columbia dairy farmer, Wally Smith knows a thing or two about downer cows. As a longtime executive player in Dairy Farmers of Canada, the DFC president also knows a thing or two about stalled World Trade Organization negotiations. Oddly, he finds similarity between the two. “I compare the W TO talks to a d o w n e r c o w ,” S m i t h s a i d i n a speech and later interview during the DFC’s recent annual meeting in Ottawa. “You feed it, you look after it, you try to rehabilitate it and it is a drag on all your energy and resources.” W TO talks and demands from


many countries for across-the-board tariff cuts have been seen for years as the greatest threat to the supply management system, but Smith said the emphasis has changed to bilateral and regional trade negotiations, where access is also on the table. “I think countries are voting with their feet (by emphasizing regional and bilateral deals),” he said. “I think the plurilateral agreement model like the WTO is in some jeopardy.” The 11-year-old Doha Round of negotiations, which is gearing up for a ministerial meeting in December, seems to be going nowhere. Still, when ministers gather in Bali, Indonesia, in December, DFC will be there in case something happens. There will be a new direc-

tor general and Canadian ministers will attend. “I can’t predict if there will be progress,” he said. “But where the minister goes, we like to shadow.” Smith said ongoing discussions within the Canadian dairy industry about creating a national pool also fit the downer cow pattern. He used his convention speech to advocate for more progress on folding regional pools into one because the industry needs national decision making when changes have to be made. However, Smith said it is slow going. “We’re not going anywhere fast,” he said in the later interview. “We continue to have dialogue and my sense is there is a lot more

pressure we have to acknowledge as an industry. If we are going to adapt to change, as I think we need t o, t h e re is m o re strength in a national system that is unified from coast to coast than having regional pools still trying to protect provincial sovereignty.” He said existing divisions between regional pools leave the industry weaker than it need be. “The more united we are, the stronger we’ll be.” It is an issue that former DFC president Jacques Laforge championed for years and Smith has picked up the baton, although with little expectation of a quick solution. “In some ways, we’re preceding with national pools discussions the same way that we are w ith the WTO.”

Nine candidates have been nominated as possible successors to outgoing WTO director-general Pascal Lamy. The result is scheduled for May 31. • Tim Groser, New Zealand minister of trade • Amina Mohamed of Kenya, United Nations assistant secretary-general and deputy executive director of the UN Environment Programme • Anabal González, Costa Rica’s foreign trade minister • Mari Elka Pangestu, former Indonesian trade minister • Ahmad Thougan Hindawi, Jordan’s former trade and industry minister • Herminio Blanco, Mexico’s former trade and industry minister • Taeho Bark, Republic of Korea’s trade minister • Roberto Carvalho de Azevêdo, representative of Brazil to the WTO • Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen, former Ghanaian minister of trade, industry and president’s special initiatives

Putting beans and soybeans in the same rotation is dangerous, says Dennis Lange of Manitoba Agriculture. Even a tiny amount of soybeans in an edible bean sample can make the beans undeliverable. “Even having half a percent volunteering in your pinto bean field, you could get rejected at the elevator,” Lange told the recent Manitoba Special Crops Symposium. That’s because soybeans are considered a food allergen in the edible bean business. There is almost no tolerance for them. Soybeans and edible beans have been butting heads in Manitoba’s Red River Valley for years, with many traditional edible bean growers trying soybeans or putting soybeans into their rotations. Edibles have been a significant crop for decades, but soybeans are a phenomenon of the past decade, going from near-zero acres to probably more than one million this year. Edibles will probably have less than 100,000 acres in Manitoba this spring. Lange said soybeans tend to have a .5 to three percent volunteer rate if they are grown on a field two years previously. They can’t always be cleaned out by a colour sorter, especially if they have matured by the time they are harvested. Lange said he would even be hesitant to put edibles on a field used for soybean production three years previously. It’s best to dedicate fields to

one or the other and stick with that, he added. “If you have a field that’s suitable for edible beans and you have fields on your farm that are suitable for soybeans, neither the two shall mix.” Edibles do best on well-drained, sandy soil, so those fields make most sense for that crop. Soybeans can handle wetter soil better, so those types of fields work well for that crop. Lange encouraged farmers to keep careful track of their fields’ production history because it can be hard to keep track of what has been grown on each field, especially if farmers have had to reseed acres because of weather problems. “Unfortunately, sometimes growers forget what they had two years ago,” said Lange.

PERMACULTURE | SUSTAINABILITY

Back to basics: farm aims for sustainability Permaculture principles | Members learn how to live in harmony with nature BY JEFFREY CARTER FREELANCE WRITER

GUELPH, Ont. — Wetland, woodland, farmland and suntrap gardens can all can be found at Whole Village Farm just 60 minutes from downtown Toronto. The scenario may seem fanciful and the community has yet to achieve the level of sustainability envisioned under its permaculture principles, but there have been successes. Brenda Dolling, one of the community’s eight founding members, said the 191-acre Caledon farm has been paid for and many improvements made. Greenhaven, the co-operatively owned, 15,000 sq. foot home with 11 private suites and common areas, is close to being mortgage free. “Moving to permaculture isn’t as easy as it may look, but it can be done because people are doing it,” Dolling said. “It is a design system for sustainable living and land use. She said the project was a response to world crises such as climate change and loss of arable land and clean water. “Permaculture design tries to create the resources, energy flows and cultures that will succeed oil-based societies.” The Whole Village property with its

brick farmhouse and outbuildings was purchased in 2002 from two Toronto professionals who used it as kind of retreat. One of the first jobs for the new owners was to assess the purchase for its value. Reputable farmers were brought in to walk the property. Representatives of the Credit Valley Conservation Authority and a landscape architect provided their opinions. More than 16,000 native trees have been planted over the past decade, some with the idea of growing a forest garden where fruits and nuts can be harvested along with fuel and timber. Sheltered locations, called sun traps, are being used for crops. A variety of fruit trees, berry bushes and gardens have been established. The wetland area, designated as provincially significant, hasn’t been touched. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

The old farmhouse and some of the outbuildings have been updated, using communal work when possible. They’re leased, along with space for a market garden and equipment, to people interested in operating the Whole Village community shared agriculture enterprise. “It was really important to us to give some young farmers a way to start up,” Dolling said. Seven farming groups have operated the CSA to gain experience so that they can hopefully establish similar businesses elsewhere. It has supplied as many as 100 families with fruits and vegetables. Whole Village members also garden for themselves, with varying degrees of success. As well, there are poultry and enough grain grown to feed them. Greenhaven was built for $2.4 million and incorporates many sustainable features, including a superinsulated shell, an energy-efficient masonry heat system, passive solar, radiant floor heating from a geothermal system, solar water heating and an engineered wetland to treat grey and black water. Rainwater is collected from the roof in barrels for the gardens. Communal meals are served about five days a week with members sharing kitchen duties. Members also preserve food together and share rides, vehicles and

items such as sewing machines and vacuums. Dolling said environmental permaculture seeks to establish a harmonious relationship with nature, which requires careful observation and experimentation. Establishing a culture of permaculture when it comes to human relationships may be the greater challenge. Dolling said it requires much discussion, consensus, mutual support, a focus on common sustainable goals and a great deal of patience. The fact that many of the Whole Village partners are retirees with a considerable amount of life experience may help. Members buy shares in the community, which are transferable. In Dolling’s case, these add up to more than $200,000. There are also monthly fees to cover some of the farm and home costs and pay for food. “We’re still subsidizing the operation, but we hope the next generation doesn’t have to,” said Dolling, who grew up on a mixed far m near Oakville, Ont., and has returned to her farming roots after a career in education. Whole Village offers group tours, orientation meetings and permaculture educational workshops. For more information, visit www.

Allen Olson is bidding adieu after half a century in the livestock auction business. He recently sold Rimbey Livestock Auction Mart to Sekura Auctions of Drayton Valley, Alta. “I just decided at my age it was time to take the opportunity to get out of it while there was a willing buyer,” he said. “There comes a time in life when a person should think about slowing down. That’s the only reason I sold it was because of the age I’m getting to be.” At age 67, Olson remains an enthusiast about the business he entered at 16 after taking the auctioneer’s course in Mason City, Iowa. “The auction business has treated me very good over the years. I’ve been very happy to be in it. As far as the livestock market, I know I’m going to miss the activity there and running it, or participating in the management of it.” The Olson family owned the auction mart in Rimbey, Alta., from 1968-74. After selling the business, Olson stayed on and auctioneered for several years. Along with three partners, he purchased it in 1996 and eventually bought them out for sole ownership. Olson said he has seen a growing trend of amalgamation in the auction business. Smaller, more spec i a l i z e d c o m p a n i e s a re b e i n g bought up by larger organizations looking to diversify. “There is getting to be more companies wanting to own more different markets,” he said. “Just like the equipment business, it’s a fact that companies are getting bigger. The individual guy is kind of phasing out. It is a trend too in the auction mart business that companies want to have more markets under the same company.” Other than increased volumes and higher prices, he said there’s been little change in the auctioneering part of the business throughout the years.

Auctioneer Allen Olson plans to spend more time running his cattle operation and running Allen B. Olson Auction Service. | F. SCOTTY AITKEN PHOTOS The big change he sees, and not necessarily for the best, is the rise in internet sales. “I’m not a great promoter of internet sales because I think they might be ruination of the auction business. I feel you have to have people standing in front of you to be able to have a successful sale. Speaking in general about equipment or animals,” he said. “My philosophy is, how do you have an auction sale if you’ve got nobody in front of you? That’s one thing we never did was get into the computer end of it, just because of my feelings that way. If people are interested in equipment or livestock, or whatever, I feel that it’s worth their while to come to the sale.… I do realize it may open up the market to people further away that just don’t have the time or whatever to come to a sale. However, there are options where you can talk to people and have order buyers look after you.” One less iron in the fire doesn’t mean Olson isn’t keeping busy. He continues to own Allen B. Olson Auction Service specializing in machinery and real estate in addition to raising a commercial cattle herd. “It’s just going to free up a little time

to maybe spend more time on the other avenues of equipment and farming my own cattle operation.” Olson and his son, Dean, run a commercial herd of 350 cows and background 700, to 1,000 calves. “We’ve been fairly active in that end of the business too and we plan on carrying on that and keep on plugging away,” he said. This spring when he goes to auction to sell his cattle, Olson will be sitting in the bleachers instead of behind his trusty, worn gavel. Although the tables have turned, he’ll continue to support the business he built. “When my cattle are for sale, they’ll definitely go directly to the Rimbey Auction Mart.” He describes the auction as an event, like going to the Calgary Stampede. “With the livestock auctions, people are coming to check out the neighbour’s animals. We have horse sales once a month and the place is packed to the rafters with people, whether they’re coming just to visit, or just to socialize, or the odd time they’ll maybe stick up their hand and buy a horse or buy some tack or whatever,” he said. “It’s great fun for everybody.”

An organic specialist in Manitoba plans to help farmers create organic production clubs in the province. Manitoba’s organic community is small and many producers already know each other, but the clubs would be a forum to share knowledge and advance organic agriculture, said Laura Telford, Manitoba Agriculture’s business development specialist for organics. The clubs are needed because organic relies on a different extension model than conventional farming, she said from Portage la Prairie. “In the mainstream world, a lot of the extension comes from input suppliers … but in the organic world we don’t have a lot of inputs.” Provincial agents have historically been the principal source of agricultural information in Canada, but corporations now play a prominent role in ag extension, said Jodi Koberinski, Organic Council of Ontario executive director. “Now the person educating the (conventional) farmer is coming from a seed company or a chemical company. They’re visiting them on the farm or meeting them at the farm shows.” As a result, the Organic Council of Ontario has helped foster production clubs in the province, including dairy, beef, egg and grain. Telford said the production clubs in Ontario and Quebec inspired her to consider similar clubs in Manitoba. Telford sent a survey to 300 producers in Manitoba to determine if growers want the clubs and how they should be organized. She hasn’t reviewed the survey yet


but suspects the clubs will be organized by to region rather than by sector. “From speaking with producers, they recognize that you can learn a lot across commodities and there are huge benefits to be gained, just by bringing farmers together,” she said. “I think, at the beginning, we’re going to start with a couple of generic regional clubs that (cut) across all commodities.” As an example of potential benefits, Manitoba lacks organic chicken production because the province doesn’t have a farmer who grows organic chicken feed. Te l f o rd s a i d a n e w b u s i n e s s arrangement might result if a poultry producer and organic grain grower join the same club. Producers sharing knowledge over coffee may be constructive, but she said talking within a circle does have limitations. “You also need to bring experts into the mix at some point because producers don’t know everything. There can be a danger that they’re transferring bad knowledge to each other.” Telford hopes the clubs come together quickly and expects to host an initial meeting in the near future. The clubs are expected to be free at first, but the provincial government would likely pay half the costs if clubs wanted to host expert speakers in the future, she added.

Co-ordination key to fighting prairie grass fires Community effort | Expert says that while intentions are good, firebreaks aren’t effective unless placed properly BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

FORT MACLEOD, Alta. — Out-ofcontrol grass fires on the Prairies bring immediate community response. Often that includes farmers who bring tillage equipment and create firebreaks to slow or stop the fire’s spread. But do those firebreaks really help? Not always, says Alberta government rangeland specialist Kevin France. He told the Holding the Reins conference Feb. 13 that fireguards need to be properly placed to do any good, and that doesn’t often happen in the panic that accompanies a raging grass fire. “There is a role for strategically placed fire guards, I will not argue that,” he said. “The reality is, the fire that we deal with in Alberta, they’re fueled by winds of 80 to 100 km-h. Haphazard fireguards don’t work. Roads don’t work. Rivers don’t work. We need strategic planning for where we should be placing fireguards.” Southern Alberta has seen impressive prairie grass fires in recent years. One of the most recent burned 16,000 acres of grassland near Milk River, Alta., Sept. 10, 2012. Started by a combine, the fire was

pushed by 100 km-h winds in dry conditions, 23 C heat and low humidity. It burned a swath 32 k i l o m e t re s l o n g b e f o re i t w a s stopped, but not before it damaged numerous farm buildings, fences and native prairie. Farmers responded to the blaze, some using tractors and tillage equipment to create firebreaks, but France said the fire was moving so fast that no one could get in front of it to establish a useful barrier. “I understand the fear component,” he said. “The emotional part, I understand and appreciate.” Volunteer efforts to protect property are also commendable, but they would be more useful in fire control if they were better co-ordinated, he added. “What I would like to see is some co-ordination among fire people and counties in educating the public” about locations for firebreaks and strategic back-burning, said France. After the fire, the bare ground and ridges that are part of the firebreaks must also be dealt with before they b e c o me i d e al p l ac e s f o r w e e d growth. France recommended that soil ridges be rolled back into place as soon as possible. “That way it allows that seed bank and that soil contact to occur and

natural recovery should take place.” As for grass condition in the Milk

River fire area, France said it showed signs of regrowth in late fall but

spring moisture will determine how quickly the land recovers.

Agricultural experts | Farmers of Canada invite guest hosts to tweet about their work BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Farrowing technician Kendra Leslie tweeted a flurry of cute pig pictures as her last official job as guest host of the Farmers of Canada twitter site. Tweeting pictures of newborn piglets, studly boars, relaxed mothers and a group of weaners heading down the hall was Leslie’s way of helping the public learn more about the industry she loves. “I really love my job. I love pigs and I love talking to people about pigs,” said Leslie of Paisley, Ont., after retiring from her week as guest host of the twitter site. “Pigs are so curious about everything. They’re smart, curious animals.” During her week as twitter host, Leslie answered questions from followers about biosecurity in barns, inducing labour in sows and the need for air fresheners in her vehicle. “It’s a glimpse of what I do every day,” said Leslie, a farrowing technician in a 2,500-head southwestern Ontario pig barn. “It’s a more realistic view of what goes on and not an extreme view.” Starting a conversation about agriculture is the goal of the Farmers of Canada twitter account, said founder Meaghan Thornhill of Antigonish, N.S. The Ontario city girl turned Nova Scotia dairy farmer hopes the new rotational twitter site, with new hosts each week, will give Canadians a glimpse into the life of farmers. “I want to get the message out there about agriculture,” said Thornhill, who hosted the account the first week and tweeted about her Jersey and Holstein dairy farm.

Thornhill tweeted a picture of a milk truck picking up milk, which she thought was a fairly ordinary event. However, a follower from Newfoundland tweeted back that she was so impressed with the cleanliness of the milk truck she would keep drinking that brand of milk. “The connection was so random as the cleanliness of the truck,” said Thornhill. Another person asked about hormones in milk, and Thornhill tweeted back that no artificial growth hormones are used in Canadian dairy cattle. The Swedish government started the first rotating twitter account. New hosts each week tweet about their life and activities in Sweden. David Meister, a hobby farmer from Nova Scotia, tweeted in week three of the Canadian project about his dual life with a job in Halifax and a small scale farm an hour away. Thornhill hopes to shine a light on hobby farmers, considering that many urban residents believe all farms are large scale. “We live in our individual bubble. It’s important for everyone involved in agriculture to know how everything is done in the other sectors,” she said. Since starting her personal twitter account a year ago, Thornhill has helped dispel dairy myths among her friends and made friends within the dairy industry across Canada. It’s not uncommon for Thornhill to tweet a question about dairy nutrition or breeding and instantly receive an answer from her twitter followers. “It has made me more involved in the dairy industry. It’s easy to stay in the barn and not read the industry publications. I have made so many friends in the dairy industry.”

Rein in crown lender: report C.D. Howe Institute thinks it is time that Farm Credit Canada again became the lender of last resort BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

The business-oriented C.D. Howe Institute has stirred up a fierce debate by arguing that Farm Credit Canada provides unfair competition for private lenders and should be reined in. The Toronto-based think-tank issued a report early this month arguing that the crown corporation has an unfair advantage over commercial competitors and should have a mandate review and tougher regulatory control. It also suggested FCC should revert to the lender-of-last-resort position it held until the late 1980s when the federal government bailed it out of hundreds of millions of dollars of debt and instructed it to operate in the black and pay an annual dividend to Ottawa. “The traditional lender-of-lastresort role … should be considered for all crown financial corporations,” said the Howe commentary. “This former legislative role encapsulated well the concept that crowns should not compete with private lenders and insurers.” The think-tank said its recommendation would make the crown portfolios higher risk, but “it would limit their size and the extent to which they crowd out private market activity.” Credit Union Central president David Phillips said FCC has an economic advantage over private lenders such as credit unions because it has access to cheaper funds and does not pay income tax. “It is an interesting report and we are in agreement with some aspects of it, and the issues it raises are important,” he said. “They clearly have a competitive advantage that we find unfair. We certainly think a mandate review is a good idea.” FCC and its supporters rejected the report’s premise of unfair advantage and its recommendations. FCC executive vice-president and chief executive officer Remi Lemoine said the corporation’s ability to borrow from government at cheaperthan-market rates does not give it a market advantage. “We do not pass those savings onto our customers,” he said. “We have a balanced portfolio and our market share has grown because agriculture is our sole focus.” He said a parliamentary review of the FCC mandate is not necessary. Canadian Federation of Agriculture president Ron Bonnett agreed. Bonnett, who is both an FCC and

credit union customer, said FCC offers farmers a full range of options and has shown its financial loyalty to the sector. “In our opinion, they bring competition into the system and they are there through thick and thin,” he said. “For some other lenders, when things are good they are there but when there is a blip, they run away from the sector like scared rabbits.” Former Liberal agriculture minister Ralph Goodale said the proposal

to return FCC to the status of taking on customers that commercial lenders find too risky is a non-starter. “That is a recipe for failure, and FCC adds financing stability,” he said. “The trouble with relying on private lenders only is that they are in when times are good and out when times turn. There is no commitment to service agriculture.” Credit unions and chartered banks beg to differ and have been wooing farm groups through sponsorships at

meeting to extol the extent of the bank’s partnership with and support of the dairy industry. The Howe report said FCC’s share of farm debt almost doubled in 20 years to 29 percent in 2011, helping push farm debt to record highs.





Ag minister defends FCC against criticism from bankers Calls for review | Critics say lower rates from the federal Crown corp put private lenders at a disadvantage BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz has offered a strong defence in the face of private lender criticism that Farm Credit Canada has an unfair market advantage and should be reined in. The debate was stirred up in a commentary by business-oriented thinktank C.D. Howe Institute, which argued the federal crown corporation’s mandate should limit its ability to compete with private lenders. It suggested FCC revert to a 25-yearold model of being a lender-of-last-

resort for highest risk farm borrowers. In response to a query, Ritz issued a statement defending the Reginabased crown farm lender. “Through targeted programming, FCC provides much needed stability to thousands of farmers and farm families,” he said. “Farm Credit Canada has been instrumental in fostering long-term economic growth overall across rural Canada. Our government fully supports the work that FCC does for farmers and Canadian agriculture.” The Canadian Bankers’ Association does not see the issue the same way.

CBA policy and operations vicepresident Marion Wrobel said FCC’s lower government borrowing rates clearly gives it an unfair market advantage. The proof is that its share of farm debt outstanding has risen to 30 percent during the past decade and its share of mortgage lending to almost 40 percent, he added. Wrobel said crown lenders such as FCC should have a clear mandate that limits the ability to compete with commercial lenders such as banks and credit unions. “We think it is really important that

crowns have a clear public policy mandate.” He said they need better oversight, perhaps through the Superintendent of Financial Institutions, which oversees private financial institution. A mandate review of the crown corporation by Parliament would also be in order, he added. Wrobel said FCC clearly makes loans that carry higher risks than private lenders can afford. He also rejected arguments by FCC defenders that the crown corporation is necessary because it is a dependable supporter of the sector

while private lenders back away from lending when the agricultural economy weakens. Private lenders carry the bulk of short-term operating loans, he said. Wrobel said private lenders do not simply lend against rising asset values but also take into consideration cash flow and profitability when issuing operating loans. “Sometimes we give advice to farmers that they are taking on too much debt,” he said. “Sometimes the best thing to say to an agricultural producer is ‘no’ or ‘not so much’ or ‘here’s how you have to restructure yourself to repay those loans.’ ” Wrobel said making FCC a lender of last resort could be one part of the answer, depending on the public policy mandate, but the banks’ main point is that publicly supported lenders should complement private lenders and not compete. “From our point of view, it is a policy of complementarity that is the key.”


CFA celebrates food freedom BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

The nation’s farmers offered Canadians a special Valentine’s Day gift Feb. 14 — what the Canadian Federation of Agriculture calls food freedom day. According to CFA calculations, it was the day the average Canadian had earned enough to pay the year’s grocery bill. Last year it was Feb. 12. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation calculates that tax freedom day, when Canadians earn enough to cover tax bills, occurs much later into the summer. For years, the CFA has made food freedom day an opportunity to promote the supply of Canadian food to a general population that increasingly takes its food supply for granted. Federal agriculture ministers have previously joined farm leaders at grocery stores on food freedom day to promote the quantity, quality and price of food available. This year, there has been no government recognition of the day. The CFA is highlighting the impact that food waste has on Canadian food security. According to a George Morris Centre study, food waste in Canada was worth $27 billion in 2009, most of it in the home and the rest on farms and in restaurants, retail stores and the processing industry. It represents an average of $774.07 worth of wasted food for each Canadian, says the report. “Without any food waste along the food value chain, the date for Food Freedom Day would have been Feb. 5 this year,” said a CFA statement. Bonnett suggested Canadians use the day to consider how to minimize food waste in society. The CFA says Canadians spent 12.3 percent of their disposable income on food.

U.S. senators push for stricter subsidy limits Cap on payments | The program was designed to help small and medium sized family farms WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — U.S. farmers would be limited to $125,000 a year in crop support payments in a significant tightening of farm support rules recently proposed by four senators from farm and ranch states. There is no effective limit on payments now. Large operators collect the lion’s share of subsidies because they are based on each bushel of grain or pound of cotton grown on a farm. “It’s time to get the program back to its original intent,” said senator Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican and a sponsor of the bill who is a long-time proponent of strict limits. He said the farm program, dating from the 1930s, was aimed at protecting small and medium-size family farms. Besides putting a “hard” cap on payments per farmer, the bill would also crack down on payments to investors and absentee landlords. Under it, only one person living in town could collect subsidies for providing management on a given farm. Passage of the package “would put an end to widespread abuse in farm programs,” said the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, which represents small farmers.



For too long farm program payments have gone to producers who do not need the support, and sometimes to people who are not involved in farming.

PER COUPLE sponsors. Brown and Grassley are members of the Senate agriculture committee. The senators’ proposal would allow grain, cotton and soybean growers to collect up to $50,000 a year for all crop subsidies and $75,000 a year from the marketing loan program, for a total of $125,000 per farmer. The total would double to $250,000 for a married couple. There is now a $105,000 limit per farmer, or $210,000 per couple, on crop subsidies and no limit on marketing loan benefits, so there is no overall limit on payments. The senators said a stricter definition of who qualifies for subsidies, known as the “actively engaged” rule, would greatly reduce the flow of subsidies to investors and absentee owners who take no role in running a farm but who say they provide key management direction. Farm subsidies are available to


It said the chances for passage of a new farm bill would be boosted by the inclusion of meaningful payment limits. Although the Senate included similar reforms in its farm bill last year, the version approved by the House of Representatives’ agriculture committee rejected them. Both bills died at the end of 2012, so Congress must start over on the bill this year. Grassley said he was confident the Senate would adopt the package this year. Republican senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming, Democrat Tim Johnson of South Dakota and Democrat Sherrod Brown of Ohio joined Grassley as

people who provide land, equipment or capital and 1,000 hours of labour per year or active management. A decade ago, a congressional commission suggested more stringent rules on what qualifies as management. “For too long farm program payments have gone to producers who do not need the support, and sometimes to people who are not involved in farming,” said Brown. The 2008 farm bill was the first to deny subsidies to the wealthiest farmers, or those with more than $1.25 million in adjusted gross income. It also ended the “threeentity rule,” which allowed growers to collect subsidies directly and through two affiliates. Payment limits are a divisive issue in U.S. agriculture, pitting cotton and rice growers in the South against the wheat, corn and soybean farmers of the Plains and Midwest, and big operators against small farmers. Cotton and rice have the highest support rates but also high costs of production.


1000 Foot Views Show Technotill Advantage Getting a 1000 foot perspective on how crops are performing, gives North Battleford, Sask. area farmer and private pilot Alan Heidel a much better idea of how his crop management system is working. Heidel who switched to the Technotill seeding system on his 41 foot airseeding system five years ago, says a weekly flight in his Piper Warrior PA28 over his fields throughout the growing season tells the story. “I have been really impressed with how even the germination is over a whole field, from flat areas to the hill tops, and over different soil types and you can’t always see that even walking the fields,” says Heidel who crops about 2,200 acres of grains, oilseeds and pulse crops. “I use a narrow one-inch Bourgault opener so there is very little soil disturbance. I can run the opener shallow when there is good moisture, or deeper to reach moisture in dryer years and there is still just this one-quarter inch of packed soil on top of the seed. There is excellent seed to soil contact and very even germination.” Heidel says the system works equally well with all crops from wheat, to canola, to peas, to lentils, and to oats. “We used to broadcast apply our canola just ahead of the seeding equipment, which covered the seed, but I wasn’t happy with germination. The Technotill system works extremely well.”

And with the Technotill system, he likes the fact that fertilizer is placed just above and to the side of the seed row. He can place all fertilizer at time of seeding without risk of seedling injury, and especially in wet years he likes the fact the fertilizer is being moved down into the root zone, rather than being leached away below the roots. With a direct seeding system, with very low disturbance, and by leaving crop residue on the field, Heidel says there has been a marked increase in soil organic matter particularly in areas of sandier soil. “We’ve had some good growing conditions the last few years, but even with that I can tell crops are much more even, the fields are fuller with improved plant stands, and yields have increased,” he says. “It is a very simple and efficient system that all helps the bottom line,” says Heidel.

Forecast for Australian wheat improves slightly Updated projections | Crops escape damage from floods and heat, although protein levels disappoint SYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) — Australia has raised its production estimate for the current marketing year by a fraction from its December estimate. The crop largely escaped damage from a heat wave and floods this summer. The Australian Bureau of Agriculture and Resource Economics and

Sciences (ABARES) forecast wheat production of 22.077 million tonnes for the marketing year ending in August, up .2 percent from its December estimate of 22.035 million tonnes. The broadly unchanged forecast will be welcomed after the U.S. Department of Agriculture surprised the market by cutting it forecast for

U.S. wheat stocks, adding to worries about a global shortage. The stockpile of U.S. wheat at the end of the marketing year May 31 will shrink to 691 million bushels, the smallest in four years and down from its previous forecast for 716 million bu., the USDA said. Australia’s wheat crop enjoyed favourable weather toward the end of the growing cycle, but the government’s commodity forecaster said protein levels across the country’s east coast were lower than average. “We weren’t expecting them to change the wheat number too much,” said Luke Mathews, com-

modities strategist at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia. Wheat in Australia is planted starting in late April and harvested by the end of December. Spring rain helped Australia’s winter crops, ABARES said. The commodities forecaster raised its 2012-13 canola estimate by 17 percent on better-than-expected yields and a larger planted area. Canola production was put at 3.089 million tonnes, up from a December estimate of 2.636 million tonnes. “We always knew canola acreage was very strong, and we had been hearing anecdotal reports of betterthan-expected yields,” Mathews said.

More canola was planted in New South Wales and Western Australia than was previously expected, while favourable crop weather across Australia’s west coast boosted yields, ABARES said. The forecaster also noted the impact of the heat wave that scorched Australia in January. While maintaining its forecast for cotton production at 945,000 tonnes, ABARES said summer crop production would fall 13 percent to approximately 4.8 million tonnes as a result of the record heat in January. The heat has sapped soil moisture vital for germination and establishing newly seeded crops.

Thieves escape wildlife park with emu in tow SYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) — The theft of a fully grown emu from an Australian wildlife park has left only a pile of feathers at the scene of the crime and questions about the motive for snatching an ungainly bird with practically no cash value. Operating under cover of darkness, robbers are believed to have lifted the flightless bird over electrified barbed wire atop a two metre fence, eluding a guard and a security camera. The emu is second only to the ostrich in size and is known for its speed, powerful legs and clawed feet. Police evidence suggests a getaway vehicle was parked one kilometre away near a train line adjacent to the park, said Chad Staples, senior curator at Featherdale Wildlife Park in Doonside, west of Sydney. “It would have had to be carried the whole way and lifted over the fences twice,” he said. A grown emu can be as much as two metres tall and weigh 37 kilograms. Staples said he was mystified by the theft, the first of its kind. “Emus don’t really have a monetary value because of how common they are. It (the theft) was extremely targeted and it seems fairly well executed.” The last break-in at the park was on Christmas Day 2012, when 10 macaw parrots were stolen but recovered shortly after.

ATTENTION: SASK. MINERAL RIGHT OWNERS. Do you have non-producing heavy oil mineral rights which provide you no royalty revenue? Have the oil companies operating in your area, explored other possible Enhanced Oil Recovery processes that could be used to produce oil? If not, we would like to talk to you about recovering that stranded oil and putting money in your pocket sooner rather than never. We have developed and submitted a patent for an environmental friendly process that may be able to meet those production needs. This process is no bigger than your typical lease site with no additional noise, odor, traffic or emissions. (Environmental friendly process). The technology is called (PRTISP) Pulse Resonance Thermal Injection Syngas Process WIPO Patent WO/2011/026226A1. If you are interested, I would be glad to discuss our pilot project with you.

Farmers told to use personal approach in promoting sector Stress values over science, says dairy official BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Farm organizations must stress industry values when fighting back against growing criticism over issues as diverse as subsidies, animal welfare and food safety, says an American dairy industry player. Stan Erwine, vice-president of Dairy Management Inc., told the annual Dairy Farmers of Canada conference Feb. 7 that it isn’t good enough for the industry to defend farm practices as science based. “Don’t lead with science,” he said. “If you use science or business records, you lose your audience. Media like to demonize farmers. We need to humanize them.” It is advice that Egg Farmers of Canada is already heeding. Judi Bundrock of EFC said an agency campaign highlights the faces of egg producers and stresses the industry’s record in producing safe food, including a traceability system.

on the farm.” He said farmers too often engage their critics only to prove them wrong rather than to educate them about the industry. “Too often, farmers enter a conversation to win an argument.”

“The egg farmer is our brand,” she said. Bundrock said the industry once faced little criticism, but attacks on supply management and food safety have become more common. “It is safe to say the tide has changed,” she said. If farmers don’t take the lead in changing industry practices and image, she added, “then changes will be forced upon us by others.… Consumers and interest groups are becoming more influential.” Erwine said the agricultural industry does not always deal well with criticism, considering it either illinformed or ideologically based. “We tend to anger easily.” He said a better approach is to have a conversation with critics to inform them of the values that farmers hold. If the issue is concern about how animals are treated, “give people examples of how you care for your animals

Manufacturers take different paths Smaller, self-propelled sprayers | Two companies add sprayers, while another ends a 50-year run BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

TULARE, Calif./KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Europe has more than 30 brands of high clearance, self propelled sprayers. In North America there are about 10. However, one of those brands won’t be counted anymore. Agco has decided to stop building its 50-year-old SpraCoupe brand of smaller and mid-sized self propelled sprayers in May. Mark Scharitz, head of application equipment for the company, said lower sales volumes, larger farms and the expense of making the machines’ engines EPA Tier 4 compliant all played a role in stopping production of the units. The larger Rogator and Terragator will remain Agco products. However, at the same time North America is also getting new brands and models. The Case IH 2240 is the latest, smallest and tallest of the company’s Patriot line and was launched in Kansas City recently. As well, Hardi from Denmark released its entry into the North American self propelled market with a pair of machines. For Case IH and Hardi, their new sprayers are aimed at producers moving up from pull-types or looking for a small to midsize self-propelled sprayer that has all the features of the biggest machines.

Hardi has had self-propelled machines in Europe since the mid1980s and planned for a North American version. However, poor commodity prices after the turn of the century kept it from developing “the right machines for the market.” Doak McDaniel said the company feels its new Saritor and Presidio units, designed and built for the North American market, will meet the needs of large-capacity pull-type owners looking to move into a selfpropelled rig. “We couldn’t offer those producers, loyal Hardi users, a place to go and stay with our brand. Now we can,” he said. Hardi, which is known for its pulltype units and nozzles in North America, has merged with spray company Excel. It owned the European self-propelled sprayer brands Berthoud and Matrot, among others, so the company has a strong track record. While the company considered exporting European machines to North America, it eventually decided to build a unit with a larger cab and the features that North American farmers were used to having. The results were the larger Saritor with a 1,100 or 1,300 U.S. gallon tank and 90 to 132 foot booms and the smaller Presidio with a 700 gallon capacity and 80 or 90 foot booms. The bigger machine gets a Cummins QSB 6.7 litre engine putting out 275 horsepower. The Presidio sports a 173 h.p. Deutz pushing oil through

The Hardi Saritor is a self-propelled sprayer with 1,300 U.S. gallon tank and an optional 130 foot boom. a three speed-range Rexroth transmission and wheel motors. The Saritor relies on a Sauer Danfoss hydrostatic transmission feeding four Sauer Danfoss wheel motors. Wet discs slow the machine from its 33 m.p.h. top speed. Forward motion, reverse and braking are all controlled by pushing a joystick forward or pulling it back. A cruise control feature allows for a target spraying speed. Engine speed can also be selected as a goal. Engine speed during spraying is balanced against load to maximize

fuel efficiency while maintaining the targeted spraying speed. Both machines use the latest Ace 650, wet seal, run dry pumps. “The system looks at what is happening at the nozzles 20 times a second and balances flow, pressure and pump speed with ground speed to ensure ideal droplet and pattern,” McDaniel said in an interview at the Agconnect show in Kansas City, Missouri, earlier this month. “The system can tell what nozzle is on the boom and how it’s doing too,” he said about the 12 section boom on

the Saritor. The smaller unit has six, eight or nine section Hardi Eagle booms. Both machines have remote fill stations with chemical inductors and remote machine throttle controls for agitation control from the ground. The bigger machine has electrically controlled valves for routing fluid during loading and resetting for operations. The Presidio has remote manual valves at the loading point. The big machine uses an HC9500 virtual terminal to communicate spraying control and steering information. The Presidio has the 9500 as an option and has steering assist rather than full auto-guidance as on the Saritor. “Next year, the 2014 model, will have full autosteer,” McDaniel said. The Terraforce boom on the Saritor has active roll and boom height based on readings by four sensors. The angle is adjusted through the centre pendulum. The machine also has the company’s Dynamic Fluid Four, which keeps constant pressure on the booms, even when sections are turning on and off for overlap or headlands. The Presidio clears the ground by 53 inches when riding on 380/80 38s, but can rise up to 58 inches when wearing optional 380/90 46s. Its big brother has 48 inches of clearance on CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE





standard 380/90 46s and can be as high as 54 inches on 480/80 R50s. If the cab looks familiar to North American producers, that’s because it is the same one found on many New Holland tractors. “It is good and large and has plenty of room for its training seat,” McDaniel said. The Presidio cab is smaller, but it has all the other creature comforts including Bluetooth compatibility on the stereo system and electric mirrors. The Saritor has no mirrors. “You couldn’t see anything if we put them on, and we tried. So it uses cameras to look backwards,” said McDaniel. The machines fold up to 132 and 138 inches. The few machines that have been assembled in Davenport, Iowa, have all been sold to U.S. buyers in advance of their release. Case IH sprayer specialist Adam Nelson said during World Ag Expo in Tulare, California, that the market needs machines that bridge the gap between large pull types and selfpropelled. “The engineers were looking for a more nimble machine, smaller, with enough ground clearance for even treating later season corn. But putting fungicide on durum is a good example of where our prairie growers have needs to be out in tall crops,” Nelson said. “And for sclerotinia in canola. The need was there and there are still lots of producers that aren’t too concerned about needing 1,200 gallons of capacity and 325 h.p. to haul it around.” The new 2240 uses the 6.7 litre Case IH Fiat Power Train engine and carries 660 gallons of product. “You can get it in an 80 or 90 foot boom and order the optional AIM Command spray system that gives constant application rate and spray pressure no matter how fast you are running,” he said. “I think we’ll see a lot of them sold with AIM Command on them.” There are three controller options: the Case IH AFS Pro 700, the Raven Viper Pro and the Case IH SCS 5000. Like the other Patriots, the 2240’s cab is stuck well out front and the engine is in the rear, balancing the weight 50-50 across the wheels. The trailing link suspension keeps the machine rolling smoothly. The 165 h.p. is fed into a three speed hydrostatic drive line pushing four Souer Danfoss wheel motors. The small front hood hides fuel and DEF tanks and slides forward. It has a transport speed of 30 m.p.h. and booms can run from 27 to 90 inches. “It is very compact when folded,” Nelson said about the 126 inch transport width.

Future equipment will fuse size and technology Research and development | Manufacturers say interest in precision agriculture is growing BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Big will get bigger, precision will be the norm, complex will become easier and everything will speak and play nice with everything else and deliver profits and intelligence as well as data. That is what farm equipment company leaders say is the future of farm machinery. Many of the world’s farm equipment manufacturing leaders were in Kansas City earlier this month, roaming the floors and speaking to farmers and the rest of the industry during Ag Connect, the American Equipment Manufacturers’ premiere agricultural event. Several shared their opinions about the trends that are guiding their companies’ research and development divisions and how they are planning for the fields and farms of the future. Jim Walker, head of Case IH in North America, said his company will spend $1.8 billion on research and development in the next three years creating new machinery and refining what is a farm machine. “Computers are farm machines and the new farm machines rely on latest technologies. These are no longer separate things,” Walker said.

“They are essential parts of it. Sometimes they are the tools that are making far mers more efficient.… In North America we aren’t developing any more acres of farml a n d . In m o s t o f t h e w o r l d w e aren’t.… In many places it is being lost, so making more from every acre is the focus,” he said. Farming more acres has been the path to improved prosperity for most producers, especially through most of the 20 years before 2008. Gary MacDonald of Winnipeg’s MacDon Industries said the 30 and 40 foot combine and swather headers and 200-plus horsepower power units that were previously considered large are now common sizes. “Only a couple of years ago, 30 and 40 foot headers were big. Now farmers want 45s and all we can build. Heck, in Australia producers are pressuring us for 50s.” Larger sizes and faster operating speeds will continue to be a major trend, he added. “At the same time farmers want fewer servicing and maintenance issues, because all that takes time away from (field operations),” MacDonald said. Walker said one of the problems with the largest equipment is that it is difficult for dealers to manage the used units. He feels there are limits

when it comes to size, but not all of them are size itself: some are related to the distribution chain and the realities of farm size. “Not everyone is large,” he said. Roy Applequist, who runs Great Plains Manufacturing in Kansas, said his company has seen the need for wider seed drills and bigger vertical tillage gear. However, he said his customers seek out the Great Plains machinery for its precision and speed rather than physical size. “They tell us they want to get the most out of every acre and out of

every plant, so we have spent a lot of time and money refining our tools.” Applequist said seed placement and agronomy will define the drills and tillage systems of the next decade. Walker said the cost of precision has been dropping rapidly and fewer producers are opting to buy the less agronomic ally advanced equipment that is available. “Precision technology is evolving rapidly and getting cheaper by the quarter,” he said. Manufacturers say they are under pressure from farmers and their dealership chains to deliver precision technology that is not only less costly but can be upgraded and replaced more easily. “It needs to move to open-source architecture … ISO standard platforms, plug and play with (any) machine,” said Walker. Mark Harrington of Trimble knows this better than most farm manufacturers. His company produces some of the most advanced agricultural mapping and geographical tools on the market. “If you think things in the (information technology) space are moving fast now, the next 10 years is going to astonish you when it comes to farming,” he said.

Harrington sees whole farm systems, similar to what is used in manufacturing and other process heavy industries, as becoming the norm on the farm. Walker said that type of integration is being used at Case IH as the company adapts Iveco’s telematics expertise into its farm equipment for location, monitoring and dispatching. Har r ington said far mers w ill increase their accumulation of data as they see its benefits. They will also begin to aggregate it and look for new ways to improve profitability through efficiency, he added. MacDonald cautioned against expansion in manufacturing. “The farm market can change rapidly and so goes our businesses,” he said. MacDonald’s company has gone from 650 staff to about 1,500 in a few years. “How long will this commodity price run last?” he said. Applequist said another year of drought in the United States might cause him to look at his operations, but he felt that U.S. crop insurance filled in the losses of 2013. As a result, his company, like most manufacturers attending Ag Connect, say their order books are staying full.

Lessons from First Nation ORGANIC MATTERS



his year’s Guelph Organic Conference and Expo looked to the roots of agriculture in the Great Lakes region for lessons in modern organic farming. Richard Hill, a member of the Haudenosaunee First Nation, which is part of the Six Nation Confederacy, spoke to an attentive and enthusiastic crowd. Before his talk, several people were working the technology, attempting to bring up his PowerPoint presentation. When he reached the designated time for his talk, he calmly suggested that perhaps this was a lesson to be learned. Although supporters had made a beautiful presentation for him, perhaps this was a reminder that the oral traditions should be shared orally. This set the tone for his presentation and seemed typical of his approach: learn the lessons that are all around you. And his story telling was well honed: eloquent, humorous and fascinating. Hill described the style of agriculture, based on corn, beans and squash, that was practised by the Seneca people in the 1600s. The “three sisters” were planted together in mounds. Corn grew tall, beans used the corn stalks for support and provided nitrogen and squash covered the ground, reducing weeding and keeping the soil moist. Hill said research from Cornell University shows this system was higher yielding and better for the soil than any of the European agricultural systems of the day. Traditional agriculture was about more than yields or even soil. It included right relationships: among people, with the crops and with the earth. It also included songs, rituals and cooking. Traditional knowledge, he said, continues to provide a model for our relationship to the earth. Hill explained the Haudenosaunee view of the world by comparing it to a bowl. He said nature is like a big dish with everything we need inside. We are given a big spoon to take what we need, but there are some important rules: take as much as you need, don’t take more than you need, leave some for others and leave some for the dish. For you to be happy, the dish must be happy.

This approach is based on abundance, social justice and ecology. It comes from a spiritual connection to food that is often lost in today’s world. Hill said growing food is one of the best forms of medicine because if it is done well, it involves meditation, an open mind, compassion and realigning one’s self with the relationships we have with the earth. The creation stories of the Haudenosaunee connect women with plants, and as such, “women are the economic engine in our community.” Men are connected with meat, with venison. Regeneration of society begins with an exchange of food between men and women, both groups working together. “To navigate this world, we need inherited knowledge,” Hill said. Sometimes the information is hard to access. “If you use your mind in the right way, it is all there for you. You have to work, but it is there.” This work can be emotionally draining, and Hill said it may not necessarily be cost effective. However, it is necessary to heal the gulf between people, the food supply and the natural world. Hill said the garden and the field tells us what we need. Some weeds may not be good, but they may be there to show us that more work is needed. Other “weeds” may be there because they bring the medicine we need. Even the crops themselves may be showing us what we need. One type of corn, the old grandfather or grandmother corn, with seeds that come up and over the tip, has medicinal value. Beans are important in relieving diabetes. The lessons of the Haudenosaunee include a personal and spiritual connection to food. “The love the creator felt for us is part of our traditional food,” Hill said. You can’t say, “I grow corn,” in his language. You can only say, “I put the seed in the ground and the corn grows.” The corn has its own spirit. Still, the work of the people is important. “What we’re doing is to restore the health of the dish.” Organic agriculture also needs to reconnect with its traditions of care, relationship, social justice and listening to the lessons around us. “The only antidote to stupidity is to have a relationship with right thinking,” Hill said. “Over there is insanity, and if you bang your head on that wall, you will get a headache. Over here is fertile earth. Where do you want to spend your time?”




Tractor’s new shape improves visibility, allows sharper turns The mid-sized Versatile machine is Tier 4 compliant BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

TULARE, Calif. — Versatile has replaced its mid-sized tractor lineup with new Tier 4 interim rated machines, sporting the latest in Cummins engine technology, bigger cabs and a much tighter turning radius. “These are whole new tractors. If you saw a black silhouette of them, you wouldn’t think it was a (GenesisVersatile),” Paul Manaigre, Versatile’s director of engineering, said during an engineering meeting in Kansas City. “We have rethought the tractor from the farmer up,” he said. The tractors do have a new look, but function drives that more than bold appearance. The heavily sloped hood ending in a much larger front grill that the new four-wheel-drives got last year comes across in the new front wheel assist machines. The shape improves the ability of the operator to see the ground below, while the big grill holds larger cooling components needed for the new Cummins Tier 4i engine with its exhaust gas recirculation and variable geometry turbo systems. Those cooling components selfclean every 20 minutes by automatic fan-reversing. “It is Tier 4 compliant and there’s no DEF fluid. Farmers don’t like to

U.S. meat production may drain feed supplies Low feed inventories | USDA report revises red meat and poultry production upward BY GAVIN MAGUIRE REUTERS MARKET ANALYST

CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — One of the most important updates in the latest U.S. crop report was outside the crop realm and in the meat production arena. The U.S. Department of Agriculture raised its estimate of U.S. red meat and poultry production by nearly a billion pounds from the previous month’s projection, indicating that the animal feeding industry is not contracting but is in fact expanding its consumption of feed supplies. The recent weakening in grain and oilseed prices will only serve to sustain that trend. However, with feed grain inventories in the U.S. at their lowest levels in close to 20 years, something will eventually have to give or domestic supplies of critical crop staples will run the risk of being depleted before U.S. farmers have a chance to replenish them. Soaring grain and oilseed prices in 2012 raised expectations that waves of demand destruction would ensue, especially in the corn market where domestic inventories shrank to multi-year lows and corn prices surged above $8 a bushel for the first time. And certainly there have been some high-profile examples of a softening in corn demand in recent months, especially in the ethanol and export industries. However, while regular usage reports allowed market trackers to follow that slowdown in ethanol and export demand, no such monitoring

The cattle feeding sector in the United States doesn’t seem to be worrying about higher feed grain prices. | information exists for corn used by the feed industry. Instead, analysts and forecasters rely on anecdotal evidence and supposition when projecting usage rates by cattle and animal feeders. Even so, a consensus emerged late last year among private forecasters as well as at the USDA that the livestock industry would indeed contract in line with the ethanol industry in response to the high input prices. Similar projections were forecast in the poultry sector where corn and other high-priced feeds are also on the menu. So it came as a surprise to see the USDA upwardly revise its 2012 U.S. red meat and poultry production projections for the fourth month in a row and its 2013 production estimates for the second month in a row,

and by more than 2.3 billion lb. since December. These revisions suggest that the meat production industries seem to be defying expectations and are engaged in expansionary drives rather than contracting. What’s more, the USDA’s latest estimate for 2013 poultry production is a record, suggesting that the U.S. poultry industry is in far better health than many grain analysts may have predicted. The growth in U.S. meat production begs the question: what are these animals being fed? And the answer of course is a lot of things, but primarily feed grain, soybean meal and distillers dried grain, which is a byproduct of ethanol production. The enduring strength in meat production in recent months sug-


gests that feedlot managers have been able to mix up animal rations over the past year so as to pare back use of certain ingredients whenever that commodity gets too expensive, while increasing portions of less expensive items. The problem is, this varied diet approach has led to a sharp drawdown in inventories of all major U.S. feed grain ingredients, including hay, barley, oats and sorghum as well as the more conventional options such as corn, wheat and meal. What’s more, the apparent contraction in the U.S. ethanol industry, which recently reduced weekly production to its lowest level on record amid industry-wide margin pressure, will result in a drop in DDG output that will further exacerbate any feed supply tightness in the

weeks and months ahead. With lower DDG supplies likely to result in higher demand for other ingredients, the collective supply of feed grains looks set to be depleted further in the months ahead if the feed industry keeps its foot on the expansion pedal. That in turn should serve to underpin feed grain prices and potentially reverse the recent downward bias to crop prices, especially if U.S. growers fail to seed their crops in a timely manner this spring. It may ultimately send signals to feeders to slow down their collective grain consumption pace. But for the time being, U.S. meat producers seem intent on cranking up meat output and chewing through grain supplies regardless of how tight feed inventories may be.

El Nino considered too weak to worry northern hemisphere NEW YORK, N.Y. (Reuters) — The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is holding to its view that the El Niño climate phenomenon should pose few weather problems in the Northern Hemisphere through spring. In its monthly report, the NOAA said prediction models point to a

neutral forecast through spring, though it has less confidence in its outlook for summer. While maintaining a neutral outlook, the report added that temperature variations in both the ocean and atmosphere increased during January. Many forecasts showed below-

average warmth in the eastern Pacific Ocean, but by late January others were pointing to warmer sea waters expanding toward the central Pacific Ocean. The much-feared El Niño weather phenomenon heats up the tropical ocean in East Asia, sending warm air into the United States and South

America and often causing flooding and heavy rain. It can also trigger drought in Southeast Asia and Australia, which produce some of the world’s major food staples, such as sugar cane and grains. However, meteorologists think the weather patterns are too weak

at this point to look for either El Niño or the La Niña phenomenon, which arises from cooler sea temperatures. “Despite these transient features contributing to cool conditions, the collective atmospheric and oceanic system reflects ENSO (El Niño)neutral,” NOAA said.

New beef code will help calm critics, avoid crisis Industry action will prevent government overreaction: CCA BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

The draft beef code of practice includes a requirement for pain medication to be administered when castrating animals older than nine months.

BRANDON — Many of Canada’s cattle regulations and approved practices were formulated decades ago and are badly outdated, say beef industry leaders. They told Manitoba Beef Producers’ recent annual meeting that the 1970s-era rules have Canada’s official situation way out of kilter with those of other countries and out of step with what most farmers think is right, which leaves them open to attack by animal welfare activists. For example, current regulations allow cattle to be transported without breaks for 52 hours, or 57 hours if they have been watered just before boarding a truck. “That’s a bit too damned long,” said cattle farmer Larry Clifford. Canadian Food Inspection Agency veterinarian Jim Clark said Australian cattle can be shipped up to 24 hours, American cattle 28 to 36 hours, New Zealand cattle 12 hours and European Union cattle only eight hours. New, tighter but more generally acceptable regulations are ready to be implemented, Clark said, and would help defend cattle producers against attacks by critics. The way things stand now, those critics could not only attack specific instances of alleged animal abuse, but also attack industry rules that don’t fit contemporary mores. “If we’ve got good regulatory framework, if we have good codes of practice, it kind of defuses some of these

Jim Clark of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency told farmers that new cattle regulations are ready to be introduced. | ED WHITE PHOTO emotional arguments,” said Clark. Canadian Cattlemen’s Association welfare specialist Ryder Lee agreed, describing a soon-to-be-updated cattle code of practice as a standard by which both good producers and offenders can be judged. An out-ofdate code undermines confidence in farmers and the industry. If the industry doesn’t appear to have good rules, a future crisis could easily lead to harsh government actions that could hurt farmers for a long time. “If something goes off the rails hard enough, legislators will make change quicker than we can even get out of bed and react to it,” said Lee, noting the B.C. government’s swift response to the killing of sled dogs. Farmer Don Guilford said producers have a wide range of opinions about what is and is not an acceptable way to transport livestock, and most just want to know what they should be doing. “As producers, we want to know where we stand and what the expectations are,” said Guilford. Lee said new regulations and the


new code of practice will be loose on specific instructions, focusing instead on the results of whatever actions farmers take. Most methods won’t be dictated. Instead, farmers will be judged by welfare and condition of their animals. “What we’re not trying to do with the code of practice is have (rules on) how to farm, how to raise cattle, a manual that touches everything,” said Lee. He said farmers should check the proposed changes to the code of practice to ensure they’re feasible. “Have a look through there.” Clark said revised transport regulations are also ready to be implemented. “We do have draft regulations ready to go.”


Committee looks for input into draft beef code BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

The committee that formulated the draft beef code of practice is asking for wide input, said one committee member. The draft opened for public comment Jan. 8 and will close March 8. Ryder Lee of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association told a Feb. 13 webinar hosted by Alberta Beef Producers that more than 100 people have already commented on the draft and 20 percent had self-identi-

fied themselves as animal welfare advocates. Anyone interested in the code is welcome to comment, Lee told those participating in the webinar, but he said cattle producers should take a particular interest to ensure the code addresses the practical nature of raising and feeding cattle. The draft code includes both requirements and recommendations pertaining to breeding, environment, animal health, husbandry and euthanasia. “It’s kind of the circle of life,” said Lee.

“Husbandry is probably the most difficult issue for the industry.” That section of the draft code involves animal handling, use of prods, branding and the use of pain control when castrating or dehorning older animals. Lee said the code, once finalized, will be used as a supporting document in cases where producers are accused of poor animal handling. Those operating outside the code would likely face tougher penalties. On the flip side, the code may also

provide protection for producers w h o a re ma nag i n g a n i ma l s i n accepted ways. “We have seen beef incidents and beef videos and cow videos that are depicted as usual business, and being able to point to a code of practice and say, ‘no, that’s not acceptable to our industry,’ is important for us as an industry to continue having the freedom to raise animals the way we see fit.” Review and comment on the code can be done online or by printing out the document and submitting writ-

ten comment, said Lee. He encouraged people to use the form so all committee members can review input once the public comment period is over. “Make sure you put in the feedback, and at least read it, and if you’ve got nothing to say, that’s cool too, but I’d be surprised,” Lee said. The draft code and comment form are available through the ABP website and at The comment period for the equine draft code of practice ended Feb. 14.





U.S. officials fuming over Russian beef import ban BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

TAMPA, Fla. — The welcome news in the United States of expanded beef trade with Japan was tempered when Russia announced a ban on meat imports because they may contain ractopamine. The dispute with Russia is more than a disagreement over whether pork and beef might contain residues of the feed additive, said U.S. officials. “It is not about ractopamine,” Gary Horlick, trade adviser to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, said during the association’s annual

meeting held Feb. 5-9 in Tampa. “It is about the overall state of U.S.Russia negotiations and legislation that Congress passed last year, and the Russians were looking for something to take back.” The ban went into effect Feb. 11. The U.S. has not offered to test meat or make changes, arguing the decision was not based on scientific evidence, said Kent Bacas, the NCBA’s associate director of legislative affairs. “This is very disappointing, considering Russia failed to base their protocol decisions on sound science such as the recommendations that were established by the interna-

tional body of sciences, Codex Alimentarius.” Russia was one of the top five export destinations for U.S. beef until the ban was announced, he said. Congress had voted to extend trade negotiations in December 2012 but also passed human rights legislation regarding Russia. In response, the Russian government halted adoption of Russian children by Americans and followed up with the meat ban. “We are going to continue to try to find ways to resolve this problem and find a way to work with the Russians,” Bacas said. In a statement issued Feb. 11, U.S.


agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack said the Russian ban was unjustified. “Russia has disregarded the extensive and expert scientific studies conducted by the international food safety standards body, the Codex Alimentarius Commission (Codex), which has repeatedly concluded

that animal feed containing the additive ractopamine is completely safe for livestock and for humans that consume their meat,” Vilsack said. “Despite repeated U.S. requests to discuss the safety of ractopamine, Russia has refused to engage in any constructive dialogue and instead has simply suspended U.S. meat imports.” The U.S. Meat Export Federation said exports to Russia were at record levels to the end of November. The total value was $305 million for nearly 80,000 tonnes, a large increase over 2011. As part of the World Trade Organization agreement, Russia agreed to increase the U.S. tariff rate quota to 60,000 tonnes at 15 percent tariff. In 2011, it was a 41,700 tonne quota. However, shipments have slowed severely since the ban. The technology that is used to produce more meat is needed to feed a hungry world, even though some trading partners reject them, said Steve Isaf, chair of the meat export federation. “We need these technologies in this country and in the world,” he said during an exporters committee meeting at the convention. “The problem is that we also have to meet the demands and interests of our customers worldwide and what their preferences are.” He suspects many consumers do not know much about these products. The disputes are often between governments. “If we abandon those technologies entirely, in 10 years, one day we will wake up and wish that we had them because we will need a big input,” he said. While the disputes with Russia continue, wider access to the Japanese beef market was considered a hard won victory. Horlick said part of the Japanese decision to extend access for beef from animals younger than 30 months instead of younger than 20 months was connected to its desire to enter the Trans Pacific Partnership. Japan’s 38.5 percent beef tariff would fall rapidly if it entered that larger agreement. In addition, the U.S. will push for full World Organization for Animal Health access, which would allow all beef into a country as long as there are certain food safety safeguards to keep BSE out of the product. This announcement could also open the door to China, said Isaf, who owns an international food trading company with three offices in China. Beef is entering Hong Kong, but China is unrelenting. It has 22 conditions that must be met for beef to enter the mainland. “I think with this opportunity with Japan coming into 30 months and down offers more cover for us to be able to get into markets like China in a direct way,” Isaf said. Japan was the second largest export market in 2012, buying more than $1 billion worth of U.S. beef. Total tonnage for all products was 143,900 tonnes, which included variety meats and whole muscle cuts. It had dropped to zero in 2004 after BSE was discovered in December 2003.






Full farrowing crates key to producer’s success

Needles hurt industry

Forget pigs per sow philosophy | Focusing on numbers leads to poor barn management and reduced meat quality, says expert STORIES BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

John Carr says the holy grail of pig production often contains poison wine. “Pigs per sow per year actually drives down profit,” the international hog production and profitability expert told the Manitoba Swine Seminar. “The only thing that is truthful on a farm is the money the slaughterhouse pays you.” Carr said the industry’s obsession of achieving 30 pigs weaned per year per sow hurts efficiency and profitability because it is a false measure open to manipulation. He said hog barn managers, keen to win their annual bonuses, can inflate the production numbers to achieve the sought-for “30.”


“If I’ve got to get 30 pigs per sow per year to get my bonus, sadly the easiest way to get it is to have 40 sows without tags, and then don’t tell the boss when a sow aborts, dies or is not as productive as you would like, take that tag out and put it into an untagged sow,” said Carr. Gilt numbers can also be manipulated to more easily reach the 30 target, but if that includes reducing the gilts herd, that will hurt long-term productivity.

High reproductive success and maximum use of farrowing crates will increase profits, producers heard at a hog seminar. | FILE PHOTO Carr said focusing on producing 30 piglets distracts the farmer from thinking about profitability and will lead to poor use of farrowing spaces, feeder barn room and pork quality. A farm’s success should be based on how much money the packer pays for the pigs week after week, he added, and that is based on the number of kilograms he pays for. Whatever maximizes the weight of a paid-for pig is what leads to profitability. Underused farrowing crates and overfilled feeding pens will also reduce profitability and need to be managed. Carr said the main productive concern should be keeping the farrowing crates filled and reproductive success high, which means having excess feeding room at some points of the year. “If I want to finish 100 pigs (per week) at 120 kilos, I’m going to have to have the space to do that at the most extreme point of the summer, which then means in the wintertime we should have empty (feeding) buildings,” said Carr. Farmers can either maximize their use of farrowing crates or feeding capacity, but not both. Because far-

rowing is the basis of the rest of the productive system, that’s what should be made a priority.

Always carry a marker. That’s one of the simple steps hog barn workers can take to eliminate the risk of broken needles ending up in the processing line at the slaughter plants, says Maple Leaf pig procurement manager Robert Mackay. “Just mark the pig,” Mackay said during a presentation at the Manitoba Swine Seminar. “Have a marker with you so that if you do break a needle, you can mark that pig right away.” Advances in needles and improvements in worker skill mean few broken needles end up in carcasses at the packing plant these days, but public sensitivity about food safety issues is also much higher. Mackay said no one can afford to see a needle point end up in the meat at the grocery store. “Just one incident of needle fragments in pork can have a pretty devastating effect for our industry.” A needle point was recently found in a pig at the Maple Leaf plant in Brandon, causing the company to issue a warning to producers. There is little reason for producers to deliberately attempt to sneak through needle-containing pigs. Maple Leaf compensates producers

for pigs put down because of broken needle points. “We don’t want the producer to ship the pig,” said Mackay. The Brandon plant contains X-ray and metal detection machinery to catch needles, but that’s not a 100 percent guarantee. Marking a pig immediately so it doesn’t get lost amongst its pen mates is essential, Mackay said. That way the pig can be euthanized and disposed of before ending up in the slaughter line. It helps for injections to be done by two people because then there is someone to catch problems like a broken needle. Workers should also ensure that the needle is still attached when moving to the next pig, that it is not bent and that it does not have burrs. Workers should never attempt to straighten a bent needle. Instead, they should carry spares. Mackay said all barn workers should be regularly reminded about good needling practices, and everyone should watch the Manitoba Pork Council’s DVD on safe injection practices. “There are no more excuses for needle fragments in pork.”





Scrapie eradication possible through selective breeding ANIMAL HEALTH



crapie, which was first documented in Spanish Merino sheep in 1732, is the most ancient and widespread of all the diseases classified as transmissible spongiform encephalopathies. It is similar to BSE and chronic wasting disease, affecting the brains

and spinal cords of sheep and goats. An infectious prion protein is suspected to be the cause. As with similar diseases, there is a long period between infection and onset of clinical disease. A wide variety of clinical signs can occur. Affected sheep display abnormal behaviour, including aggression, weakness, trouble walking and trembling. Scrapie is named for its tendency to make sheep itchy, which prompts them to scrape out their wool. This itchiness seems to be more of a problem in Europe than in Canada. Death follows a few weeks to six months after clinical signs begin. Signs of scrapie can be subtle, so

testing all poor-doing and dead animals older than one year is recommended. Affected flocks have five percent scrapie-associated mortality, but up to 20 percent annual mortality has been reported in exceptional circumstances. Scrapie is transmitted from infected ewes and nannies to their young and herd mates through contaminated birth fluids and placentas. Environmental contamination is an important route of infection. Infected replacement females can be introduced unwittingly into a group and spread the disease when they give birth. Microscopic slides of brain, lymph

mals, can confirm scrapie in an individual, but a negative result cannot determine with any certainty that the animal is not infected. Scrapie is a reportable disease under the federal Health of Animals Act, and all cases must be reported to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Cases are also reported to the World Organization for Animal Health. Eradication efforts in Canada are in line with current efforts in the United Kingdom and United States, which is important to maintain unrestricted trade. The Canadian eradication program has been in place since 2005. It is a partnership between sheep and goat producer organizations and the CFIA. Scrapie was identified in 11 Canadian sheep flocks last year, but no goat herds. Half were in Ontario, four in Quebec and one in Alberta. Only seven sheep flocks were affected in 2011. No treatment or vaccine is available for scrapie, so infected flocks are quarantined and all individual animals humanely euthanized to prevent disease spread. Compensation is available in Canada. Unlike BSE, there is no scientific evidence to suggest scrapie can cause disease in people. The fairly recent discover y of genetic resistance in sheep has stimulated interest in exploring selective breeding to minimize the effects of the disease. A blood test can determine the relative susceptibility of an individual to scrapie, and breeding choices can be based on increasing the herd’s overall resistance to the disease. Selective breeding for scrapie resistance has not produced significant negative effects in terms of growth, meat quality and fertility. Canada’s Voluntary Scrapie Flock Certification Program requires annual testing for the disease. In addition, participating herds must be either closed or limit new animal acquisitions to those from flocks with equal or higher status to minimize the risk of introducing the disease into their flocks. The CFIA recommends sheep and goat producers implement good management and biosecurity practices such as keeping records, animal identification, removing sick and birthing animals from the main group, pen and equipment hygiene and single-use needles. Persistent efforts to eliminate this disease in individual herds and ongoing measures to prevent reintroduction should lead to successful eradication.

Chiropractor gets kink out of cowboy COWBOY LOGIC


Good, clean fun ends up in crash for rider and horse


’m not someone who runs to the doctor without a darn good reason. I don’t know if it’s cowboy stoicism, frugality, fear, stubbornness or the distance to the doctor, but I usually just stay put and tough it out. It’s not a recommended attitude given the importance of preventive care, I know. However, I do practice on-ranch preventive care, old-fashioned remedies outside the realm of medical miracles and prescribed panaceas. I get a lot of exercise, some in the regular course of the day on a not-soautomated ranch and some where I actually pick up my weary bones and force myself to move around for fun and the health of it. They say riding horse is good exercise. The rider doesn’t get as much of a workout as the horse but it tones up the muscles that keep you from falling off, and it’s good for the head — most times. I was recently riding horse to get the kids outside for some fresh winter air. I was pulling them on a “sled” — the hood of an old pickup, actually — behind the horse and going at a good lope. It was good, clean fun until we suddenly discovered a three foot deep bull hole underneath the snow. By “we” I mean the horse and me. Bull holes under the snow don’t bother sledders. It was quite a wreck when we discovered the hole, hindquarters over teakettle, or pick another anatomical expression, as the saying goes. The horse went down, plowed snow with his nose and began to roll sideways. In similar top-heavy fashion, I got free of the stirrups (a good thing) and with a strong gravitational pull my head went through the snow and made firm, sudden contact with frozen Mother Earth (a not so good thing). As the snow fog settled, three little voices piped up. “Are you okay Dad?” “Um, groan, yeah, I think so.” The horse stood there and didn’t run home. I mounted back up, we did a little more sledding and called it a day. The next day, I realized I couldn’t turn my head anymore. And that’s a handy thing to be able to do when you want to see something besides what’s straight ahead. Sleep was a bit tortured, and waking up felt worse, not better. After 42 years of chiropractor-free living, I decided to give one a call and we worked in an appointment with another trip I had to make anyway. The X-rays looked good. Maybe ranch life wasn’t so hard on me. He said some of the worst X-rays he sees are from people who sit at a desk all day, every day.

He did some other tests. I thought he was talking about the ear tag numbers of cows — C2, T5, L4 — but I guess it had something to with little bones in my back and neck. Then he put me down face first, I took a deep breath, and just when I was getting comfortable, KA POW! CRACK! UFF DA! I kind of knew it was coming, but, still, I didn’t know if I should laugh or cry. I laughed. That’s usually the one I pick. He did that little trick a few more times and then hooked me up to some kind of converted electrical fencer to work on the muscles around my neck. If lightning takes out our electric fencer on the ranch, I’m going to see

if I can borrow his. They sent me off with an appointment card to come back again in a couple days. They always do, don’t they? But here’s the end of the story: I can turn my head again, I feel pretty good and I’m ready for the next wreck. Would it have gotten better on its own? I don’t know. But I learned something, I feel better and I was able to write a column about it. I’d call it two successful visits to the chiropractor. I suppose next time it’ll take three appointments, though.

Hedge fund unhappy | Former Viterra president wasn’t on largest shareholder’s wish list



The former head of Viterra has a new position of power on the board of a fertilizer company that could soon be in control of a sizeable chunk of Viterra’s old assets. Agrium Inc. has appointed Mayo Schmidt, former president of Canada’s largest grain company, to its board of directors. The Canadian fertilizer giant has also appointed David Everitt, president of Deere & Company’s global tractor and crop care products, to the board. “Agrium is pleased to welcome two strong, uniquely qualified, independent directors with extensive agricultural, retail and distribution experience to its board,” said board chair Victor Zaleschuk. Agrium is in the process of acquiring Viterra’s 263 agricultural retail outlets in Canada and Australia. The deal is subject to competition bureau approval in both countries, which is expected before the end of the second quarter of 2013. Jana Partners LLC, Agrium’s largest shareholder with a six percent ownership stake in the company, is displeased with the appointments. It has been highly critical of Agrium’s management and its board of directors. Jana wants the fertilizer company to spin off the retail side of its business and focus on manufacturing.

In November, the New York hedge fund put forward a slate of five candidates it handpicked for Agrium’s board, including former Canadian agriculture minister Lyle Vanclief. Agrium spokesperson Richard Downey said it will be up to shareholders to either reaffirm Agrium’s selections or choose Jana’s candidates at the company’s annual general meeting, which usually takes place in early May. “Shareholders will vote for one or the other. We’ve never had a proxy contest at Agrium before,” he said. Agrium reached out to Jana before making the board appointments to see if the two parties could find a negotiated solution, but discussions broke down after three days and the company proceeded with its selections of Schmidt and Everitt. Jana issued a terse news release stating that Agrium’s litmus test for its directors was that it wouldn’t question management’s prior performance or ongoing strategy. “In other words, (they) would agree to abdicate a director’s primary function,” said Jana in a statement. Jana said Agrium appears to be finally acknowledging that there needs to be change at the board table without embracing actual change in the form of independent voices who will push for shareholder-friendly improvements “We are highly confident that shareholders will see through Agri-


um’s latest hollow attempt to fight off real value-maximizing change,” said the hedge fund. Schmidt did not respond to an interview request for this article. Agrium said in a news release it had proposed allowing Jana to name one of its director candidates to the board in addition to Agrium’s selections. In return, Jana would drop its pursuit of the break-up of the company along with its other activist interests. Agrium claims Jana initially agreed to the terms but then reneged at the last minute, insisting on appointing two of its director nominees, which prompted the fertilizer company to terminate discussions. “We are disappointed in Jana’s decision to prolong this fight, which it is certain to lose. Shareholders are clearly not supportive of Jana’s initiative to break up Agrium,” said Agrium chief executive officer Michael Wilson. Jana said Agrium’s allegations surrounding the negotiations are false. Jana claims it broke off negotiations when Agrium refused to address the performance issues it had identified and revealed names of directors Jana

felt were unacceptable. Jana has a history of getting what it wants. It has won similar campaigns at Marathon Petroleum Corp. and McGraw-Hill Companies. Agrium is confident shareholders are on its side, but the company has already made concessions that Jana was asking for and recently held a 4.5 hour meeting with investment analysts in New York, where Wilson discussed a 106 page document refuting Jana’s criticisms of the company. How the proxy battle unfolds could determine the kind of company western Canadian farmers deal with in the future when they buy their crop inputs because Jana wants to spin off the retail assets, including the newly acquired Viterra assets. Agrium expects to pay $575 million for Viterra’s 263 retail outlets, 232 of which are in Canada. That is a multiple of 5.75 times the estimated 2011 earnings before income, taxes, depreciation and amortization for Viterra’s agribusiness operations. The net purchase price reflects the pending sale of Agrium’s 34 percent interest in Canadian Fertilizers Ltd., Canada’s largest nitrogen fertilizer plant, which it also received in the Viterra transaction. Agrium has agreed to sell its share in the Medicine Hat, Alta., facility to CF Industries, which already owns the remaining 66 percent of the plant, for $915 million. That deal is also pending regulatory approval.

Heinz sells for $23B CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — Warren Buffett and Brazilian financier Jorge Paulo Lemann are buying ketchup maker H.J. Heinz Co. for $23.2 billion in what could be the first step of a wave of food industry mergers. Analysts said Heinz could be a starting point to consolidate similar staple food companies. Companies like General Mills and Campbell Soup, itself long seen as a potential Heinz merger partner, rose on the news.





Sales forecast dampens outlook for Deere & Co. Shares fall | Sales projected to rise slightly this year, although concerns about global economy persist CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — Deere & Co. says it is expecting a modest increase in sales for the year, disappointing investors who thought the prospect of a record U.S. corn crop would have meant better results. Shares fell 3.5 percent because the company’s forecast suggested ongoing concerns about the global economy and equipment purchases for the rest of the year. “(The) near-term outlook is being tempered by uncertainties over fiscal, economic and trade issues that are undermining business confidence and restraining growth,” said chief executive officer Samuel Allen. A record corn crop might seem like

it would boost sales for a company like Deere. U.S. Department of Agriculture officials recently predicted the biggest such crop in history if there is normal weather this summer. However, all that corn could pressure prices for the staple commodity. Deere cut its forecast for corn prices in 2013 to $5.25 per bushel from its earlier projection of $6. Lower prices would mean a drop in total farm cash receipts. Farmers with less cash cannot spend as much on equipment, even if they have to harvest a lot of corn. “Having a big crop is nice, but it means that the price will be a little lower,” Jefferies & Co. analyst Ste-

phen Volkmann said. Deere said company equipment sales should rise six percent for the fiscal year. It also forecast net income for the year of $3.3 billion, $100 million higher than its previous outlook. “Deere’s strong quarter and guidance raise were expected, but the focus now shifts toward yields and corn prices,” William Blair & Co. LLC analyst Lawrence De Maria said. First-quarter net income rose to $649.7 million, or $1.65 per share, from $532.9 million, or $1.30 per share, a year earlier. Analysts had expected first-quarter earnings of $1.40 per share, accord-

ing to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Total revenue rose 10 percent to $7.42 billion, ahead of the $6.72 billion analysts had expected. Wells Fargo Securities LLC analyst Andrew Casey said Deere’s latest net income forecast implied full-year 2013 earnings of $8.40 per share, above Wall Street’s expectations of $8.37. The forecast, however, translated to a profit of $6.75 per share for the last three quarters, below expectations of $6.97, Casey said. In addition to the less robust overall sales view, Deere’s European sales are likely to decline this year because of weak economic conditions and

bad weather in Britain, spokesperson Susan Karlix said. The company said it expected fullyear sales of agricultural machinery to fall five percent in Europe. Analysts also took note of higher costs and a seven percent decline in the first quarter in Deere’s construction and forestry sales, which make up one-fifth of the company’s total revenue. “Forestry is weak and Deere is aggressively trying to get market share in Europe,” BMO Capital Markets analyst Joel Tiss said. “They’re probably losing some money or selling stuff cheaper than they should.”


How to keep family healthy without breaking the bank TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS


A private health services plan offers tax benefits


s a farmer, you manage the finances of your business and know how hard it is to earn and keep a dollar these days. Even tougher is spending that hard earned money on paying dental bills and medical expenses for you and your family. The key is to get the most out of your money, just as with any spending decision. With effective planning, these expenses can turn into a tax savings opportunity for you and your business. Many of us pay for medical expenses right out of our pockets. This money is after-tax and as such, $100 in medical expenses could cost you $150 pre-tax. This cost creates a medical expense tax credit, but limitations apply. An alternative option is to obtain traditional health insurance. Under most plans, you pay periodic premiums to the insurance provider. In exchange, the provider reimburses qualifying medical expenses. This option is an effective alternative to paying for the costs yourself, but the premiums can often be higher than the medical costs. This leaves you with less money than if you paid for the medical service directly. Health insurance premiums can also be used as a tax credit, but the tax savings from the credit may not offset the additional costs of the premiums. There is potential to deduct the premiums paid against self-employment income if you operate your farm as a sole-proprietorship or partnership, as opposed to taking the medical credit. However, the amount that is de-

ductible varies depending on how much of the premiums you cover for employees who are not family members. If your operation has no unrelated employees, the deductible portion is capped at $1,500 each for you and your spouse and $750 for each child. Depending on the family and the operation, this is hardly enough to cover the costs of medical expenses. An alternative option is a private health services plan, which requires special tax planning. If your business is registered under such a plan, you would personally submit claims to the PHSP, as well as cheques to cover medical expenses and administrative fees. The PHSP then mails a cheque for the full amount of the expense to you personally, which you receive tax free. Your company is then able to claim the amount equal to the medical and administrative fee as a deduction, like any other expense. This transfer of cash allows for 100 percent of the costs to be deducted by your business. The deduction provides greater tax savings than the medical credit can offer in most cases. Also, the amounts the PHSP pays to you personally are tax free. Therefore, by using a PHSP, you get money out of your business, tax free, to pay your personal medical expenses, while your business benefits from the tax deduction. A PHSP can be used on its own or in combination with existing group insurance coverage. Procedures that you would otherwise not be able to claim in a traditional health plan are sometimes eligible for coverage through a PHSP. These plans can be a great way to reduce costs, customize benefits and maximize tax deductibility. PHSPs are simple to use, regardless of the size of the business. Different employees can receive different levels of coverage, or no coverage at all, but the operation has to offer it to all of the employees to qualify. The size or type of business has no bearing on eligibility: companies, partnerships and sole-proprietorships are all eligible.

These plans can also be a great tool for retaining farm employees. If the PHSP administrator is not a tax specialist, I strongly recommend you seek the advice of a qualified tax practitioner who will be able to review the plan and ensure it meets all criteria and clarify the eligibility of

the expenses associated with the PHSP. PHSP plans are not for everyone and like any decision, you need to consider what is ideal for your specific situation. How your family should pay for medical expenses should be dis-

cussed with an adviser to ensure you have all the information to make an informed decision. Barrett Bettger and Ebony Verbonac of KPMG assisted in the writing of this article. Colin Miller is a chartered accountant and partner with KPMG’s tax practice in Lethbridge. Contact:
