Analysts see turmoil in crystal ball All depends on the weather | One broker expects ‘extremely volatile, wild, unpredictable’ prices BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

The prospect of normal production is spooking crop markets and turning many analysts bearish. However, people attending the Grainworld conference held Feb. 25-26 in Winnipeg heard two presentations that gave 2013-14 a big bullish spin.

“There simply is little room for errors in production,” Mike Krueger, an adviser and broker from Fargo, North Dakota, told the conference. “I think this crop’s going to stay extremely volatile, wild, unpredictable until we get to early summer and see what’s going on.” Krueger offered a wide price range guess for 2013-14, with corn $4.50 to


$9 per bushel, soybeans $10 to $20 per bu. and hard red spring wheat $7 to $12. The low range applies to a northern hemisphere summer that receives good weather, while the high end is possible if a significant weather problem develops somewhere. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently shocked producers, analysts and investors when it predicted 2013-

14 average prices of $4.80 per bu. for corn, $10.50 per bu. for soybeans and $7 for soft red winter wheat. That is far beneath today’s prices and much less than the extremes hit in last summer’s rally, but it is what the USDA feels is reasonable if world farmers get average weather.

Analysts see turmoil Krueger agreed with the USDA estimates and its assumption of normal weather, but he also said any significant weather problem could spark rallies that could “quickly, quickly set new all-time highs in corn futures.” Harold Davis of Prairie Crop Charts provided another bullish take on the overall crop markets. “The big picture outlook on commodity price charts is one of a decade-old accelerating bull trend that provides powerful underpinning to current prices and seem set to push grain and oilseed prices much higher in late 2013 and 2014,” said Davis in an interview before his pre-

sentation at Grainworld. Davis’ view is based on technical analysis of charts rather than the supply and demand fundamentals that Krueger looks at. Davis said many crop markets show a pattern of rising lows and repeated highs, which suggests another major rise is likely. Most of the crop-specific outlooks at Grainworld were bearish, seeing either heavy world supplies, as with wheat and oilseeds, or rebuilding world supplies, as with corn.



Trade war looms over COOL CALGARY BUREAU

BANFF, Alta. — Officials in Canada and the United States are starting to fear a looming trade war if the U.S. fails to make satisfactory changes to its country of origin labelling law. The U.S. Department of Agriculture submitted a proposal for change to the White House Office of Management and Budget on Feb. 7 but no one knows what it says, said John Masswohl of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association. The U.S. has until May 23 to comply with a World Trade Organization ruling to change the law or face retaliation. “I don’t think there is really much of a chance they will have this thing implemented by May 23,” Masswohl said. J.D. Alexander, past-president of the U.S.-based National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, said the fear that the U.S. could be hit with retaliatory tariffs if it fails to meet its WTO commitments is real. “We are hoping it doesn’t come to that, but in reality that may be what is finally going to take place and make our trade representatives realize this isn’t a good deal,” he said in an interview at the Alberta beef industry conference in Banff Feb. 20-22. He said the NCBA never favoured COOL. “We didn’t think it was a good program. We recognize our two biggest trading partners for our product are Mexico and Canada so we at no time were in favour of COOL.” The CCA argued that because country-of-origin labelling was implemented as law, only an amendment to legislation is acceptable. Canada has long maintained that

as long as cattle or hogs are processed in a U.S. federal or state inspected facility, then the meat should be eligible to labelled as product of the U.S.A. There are a series of steps that must happen in the next three months. The Office of Management and Budget has 60 days to assess the proposed changes and send them back to the USDA, where they may be reworked or published for public comment. If the final change is not satisfactory to Canada and Mexico, they can go back to the WTO compliance panel. That meeting could be scheduled within several months to a year. Or Canada and Mexico can go before the WTO and request authority to retaliate. If Canada and Mexico are allowed to retaliate, an arbitration process is set up to decide the amount of retaliation. Canada says the impact has been worth $639 million on cattle per year and $500 million on hogs per year. Proposals for potential targets for tariffs could be created. It is preferable to charge duties on finished products that go straight to consumers rather than raw materials or ingredients that might be further processed in Canada. “Politically beef and pork are going to have to be on that,” Masswohl said. He argues that the U.S. has delayed making the necessary changes to appease other groups like the National Farmers Union and R-CALF. “We all know the true intent of this was to discriminate against Canadian imported livestock,” he said. U.S. market analyst Steve Kay said the fight could last another year. “(Mandatory country of origin labeling) supporters will fight tooth and nail to keep it,” he said.

Is Europe worth wooing on flax? After Triffid | Forget Europe and focus on the lucrative North American health market, says analyst BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The flax industry wants growers to take additional steps to help restore the European market, but some analysts and processors believe it is lost forever. The Saskatchewan Flax Development Commission is asking growers to market all their existing planting seed in 2013 and 2014, especially deregistered varieties. They want farmers to replace old stocks with reconstituted Triffid-free Crop Development Centre varieties for planting in 2014. It’s the latest attempt at restoring a market decimated by the 2009 discovery of CDC Triffid, a genetically modified flax variety, in Canadian flax shipments. “If we do this right, we can regain a significant customer base and hopefully, eventually discontinue the need for rigorous testing,” SaskFlax director Dave Sefton said in a news release. Grant Fehr, flax-special crops manager at Keystone Grain Ltd. in Manitoba, said reconstituting the seed supply is a worthwhile effort, but he doubts it will restore the European market. “We’ll never have them back. Eastern Europe is going to take that market. They have taken it. We will not get

back in there,” he said. Fehr recently spoke with flax traders who attended the BioFach 2013 world organic trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany and found little interest in Canadian flax. “Canadian flax is still considered a swear word,” he said. Growers, buyers, exporters and regulators have been testing flax seed for more than three years to ensure shipments meet European buyer stipulations that it contain less than .01 percent Triffid seed. However, the testing hasn’t had much of an impact on sales. The EU imported 41,690 tonnes of Canadian flax in 2012 compared to pre-Triffid levels of 400,000 and 500,000 tonnes.


Larry Weber of Weber Commodities Ltd. questioned the wisdom of making farmers and exporters jump through hoops in an effort to maintain the European market. “I think we’re chasing a dead horse. They’re not the most lucrative mar-

ket,” he said in an interview following his flax presentation at Crop Production Week in January. “I just think that we could spend a lot more time, effort and money chasing the (North American) health market because that’s where the money is.” Sefton isn’t convinced the European market should be ignored, and he doesn’t believe it is never coming back. “Never is a long time. Unless we try and unless we make an effort it will never happen.” Rob Davies, chief executive officer of Weyburn Inland Terminal Ltd., agreed the industry needs to do everything in its power to rid the system of Triffid and lure the Europeans back. “Why not have that market available? Why would you want to limit yourself in markets?” he said. Davies said Europe isn’t the only market wanting to know the status of the flax it is buying. For instance, crushers in the United States want to ensure the seed they buy from Canada is Triffid-free because they may be sending their oil to the EU. “Anybody who is going to buy flax is going to want to know what it is,” he said. Even Fehr thinks the industry is doing the right thing by making every effort to rid the system of Triffid.

FLAX FACTS Canada was the world’s leading flax exporter until the Triffid issue restricted access to the European Union. Russia has become the leading exporter and Kazakhstan has jumped up to become number three, after Canada. Top five flax seed exporting countries (exports in 000 tonnes) ’10-’11 ’11-’12 ’12-’13 1.

“Russia has Triffid, too. Kazakhstan has Triffid, too. One day it will be their turn. Then there’s a possibility of us getting back into the (European) market,” he said. Weber is also convinced Black Sea countries have Triffid in their seed supply. He said Canada is the only country that produced new varieties in the past two decades, some of which made its way overseas. He thinks Canada should buy 10,000 tonnes of Black Sea flax and test it for Triffid. “Why we haven’t tested yet is beyond me,” Weber said.

MARQUETTE, Man. — Landowners, ranchers and politicians are voicing frustrations over what they view as provincial government neglect and incompetence regarding the province’s third largest lake. About 350 people packed into a community hall Feb. 22 near the south shores of Lake Manitoba to protest what they say is lack of compensation for the 2011 flood. That was the year when near record high water levels on Lake Manitoba spilled the banks and turned surrounding pasture and hayland into marshes and holding ponds. Unlike most floods, this one was deliberate. The provincial government diverted billions of litres of water from the Assiniboine River into Lake Manitoba to prevent severe flooding downstream in Portage la Prairie, Man. However, many acres of pasture and hayland near the lake remained flooded last year, forcing ranchers to sell part of their herds or truck in hay from other areas. The provincial government promised during the height of the 2011 flood to compensate landowners around the lake for multiple years, said Tom Teichroeb, a cattle rancher from Langruth, Man., who helped organize the meeting in Marquette. Affected producers say they haven’t received compensation for their losses in 2012. “The government made those promises,” provincial Progressive Conservative leader Brian Pallister said at the meeting. “They (landowners) have been adversely affected by a flood not of their own making … and this situation calls for fulfillment of those promises.” Speakers at the meeting said the government must also take action to ensure that flooding won’t be a recurring problem around the lake. Bill Finney, a cattle rancher from Eddystone, Man., said the situation is particularly troubling for farmers who want to retire. Land values around the lake have plummeted, in some cases by 50 percent, because buyers must assume the risk of future floods, he said. Several speakers said part of the solution is to complete and expand channels at the north end of the lake, which would move excess water into Lake Winnipeg. Others said something must be done to curb agricultural drainage upstream from Lake Manitoba. “The drainage going on in Saskatchewan … is horrific,” said Robert Sopuck, MP for Dauphin-Swan River-Marquette. Stan Struthers, Manitoba’s finance minister, defended the province’s actions. He said the government spent about $1.25 billion on flood mitigation and compensation for the 2011 flood, which he called a substantial figure. The province also asked Ottawa last summer to share the cost of compensating landowners for 2012 but there has been no response, Struthers said.






Helicopter, nets used for moose research

Farmland in short supply across Alberta

Moose migration problematic | Hunters happy, farmers not so much as moose wander Highway 11 BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Moose have traditionally been associated more with boreal forest than prairie farmland. However, a researcher from the University of Saskatchewan says it isn’t difficult to find the animals alongside a busy stretch of highway that cuts through central Saskatchewan, connecting the province’s two largest cities. Ryan Brook, who works in the university’s agriculture college, said an increasing moose population with a changing habitat is cause for concern. Several thousand moose are now found south of the province’s northern forests. Their southern migration has been welcomed by hunters, who have benefited from an increase in the number of tags issued for moose, but they are also a nuisance. They damage farmers’ fences, feed on their crops and create an increased risk of collisions with rural drivers. It’s enough of a concern that the province’s environment ministry and the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation are throwing their support behind a team of researchers who have initiated the Saskatchewan Farmland Moose Project.

Their efforts will closely track the animals for two years within an area neighbouring Highway 11 between Regina and Saskatoon. “We just don’t have any data to support or assess it. We just don’t know what the population of them is or where they go or what they eat,” said Brook. For two days last week, Brook led a team of 12 that employed a helicopter and a small plane to spot, track and tag 17 adult

female moose. Joined by a professional wildlife capture crew and ministry biologists, Brook’s team eyed the animals from the sky and fired a net from above. Members on the ground blindfolded the animals, held them down and collected blood, hair and stool samples. A tag was placed in each ear and a collar, complete with a GPS unit, was attached around their necks. The technology embedded in the

collars will send Brook hourly updates on where the animal moves. He said the animals weren’t drugged or hurt, and the collars are designed to fall off after two years. “Finding enough animals in that area was not a problem,” he said. “ There was certainly lots of female moose around there.” Most of the animals were found within 10 kilometres of the highway, while some were tagged as far as 30 km away. Brook said he would like to attach collars to as many as 25 moose this year, particularly problematic animals that are moved by wildlife officials. The same exercise will be duplicated next year with male moose. The collars are easy to identify and hunters are asked not to kill the animals. The information collected could contribute to a moose management strategy for the area, providing policy-makers with a better idea of what the animals are consuming, where they’re travelling and crossing roads and how officials could facilitate and impede their movement. “That’s our job, as I see it anyway, is to provide good science and good information to help people make more informed decisions,” said Brook.

There isn’t much cultivated farmland in Alberta, and there’s going to be even less in the future. Alberta Agriculture agronomist Ross McKenzie told the Alberta Soil Science Workshop in Lethbridge Feb. 20 that land suitable for cropping is becoming an increasingly scarce commodity in the province. He said 23 million acres of land, or 16 percent of Alberta’s total land area, are available to grow crops. “Alberta really has a relatively small percentage of land suitable for cultivated agriculture,” said McKenzie. He calculated it like this: • There are 158.7 million acres of land in Alberta. • Of that, 52 million are used for agriculture. • Of that, 20 million acres are used for grazing or are in native grassland. • About 32 million acres are cultivated, with seven million of those in hay or tame pasture. • That leaves 23 million acres for crop cultivation, about two million of which are in summer fallow each year. None of those areas are Class 1 land as defined by Agriculture Canada’s rating system based on soil type, climate and location. Alberta’s best land is Class 2, and most of it is located east of Calgary and Edmonton, said McKenzie. A sizable portion of it is under threat from urban expansion. Using data compiled by land use specialist Brad Stelfox of Calgary, McKenzie said Calgary now occupies 600 sq. kilometres. At its current growth rate of 4.5 percent per year, it could cover 3,800 sq. km by 2050. “In another 37 years, our very best agricultural land in southern Alberta, most of it will be under pavement and under parks, so not very productive,” McKenzie said. “Society must really get much more serious about protecting our land for future generations.” The oil and gas industry poses additional threats. McKenzie said estimates indicate there are 120,000 abandoned well sites on agricultural land. About 110,000 km of pipeline affect farmland, and in many cases crop production is only 60 percent of pre-pipeline levels. “We can’t get back to where we were” in terms of land production after a pipeline has been installed, he said. Alberta Environment regulations require that oil and gas companies reclaim land to at least 80 percent of its former production potential. “That’s the requirement, but very rarely does this happen,” he said. “Often in my travels, it seems like they reclaim about 40 or 50 percent of production.” He speculated about whether more restrictions should be placed on pipelines, electrical lines and windmills that cross or occupy agricultural land. McKenzie said manure from livestock feeding operations presents another threat because recommended manure application rates are based on nitrogen requirements rather than phosphorus content.





Farmers came first for Eugene Whelan

• Retired from the Canadian Senate in 1999 at age 75 after serving three years. • Died Feb. 19, 2013.


When former federal agriculture minister Eugene Whelan was buried in Amherstburg, Ont., Feb. 23, former prime minister Jean Chrétien was there to say goodbye to his old friend “Gino.” Whelan, a one-year veteran of Parliament not known for his strong command of proper English, took rookie MP and unilingual francophone Chrétien under his wing when he was first elected in 1963 and helped him learn English. They remained comrades for the next 40 years and in 1996, Chrétien appointed his old friend to the Senate. Whelan’s death Feb. 19 from the after-effects of a stroke brought tributes from across the political spectrum. He was agriculture minister for almost 11 years — 1972-79 and 198084 — the third longest term in Canadian history. He served as president of the World Food Council in 198385 and championed farmers and supply management in urban-dominated Liberal governments under prime minister Pierre Trudeau. Whelan was an MP for 22 years and ran unsuccessfully for the Liberal leadership in 1984. He was dropped from cabinet and appointed by winner John Turner as Canada’s first ambassador to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization in Rome. Incoming Progressive Conservative prime minister Brian Mulroney fired him before he could move to Rome. “I was fired by two prime ministers in one year,” Whelan later groused. However, he remained popular in the Liberal party and his reputation as a federal minister who stood up for farmers grew as the years passed. “His incredible contributions to agriculture and rural Canadians will long outlive this shining example of a man,” interim Liberal leader Bob Rae said last week. Conservative agriculture minister Gerry Ritz joined in the tribute. “Eugene was a strong voice for Canadian farmers for decades, serving in both municipal and federal politics,” Ritz said in a statement. “As Canada’s agriculture minister and his trademark green Stetson, Eugene was planted firmly on the side of farmers.” Ritz said he followed in Whelan’s footsteps of “putting farmers first.” In interviews during his later years, Whelan had little good to say about the Ritz agenda, which he saw as putting agri-business first. The Canadian Foodgrains Bank praised Whelan for his international development work and concern for small-scale farmers around the world. CFB executive director Jim Cornelius said in a statement Whelan took a keen interest in the church-supported international aid agency

when it formed in 1983. “He would call up or send notes when he thought something should be done differently.” National Farmers Union president Terry Boehm said in a statement that Whelan remained concerned about farmers and critical of government policy throughout his life. “He connected with people in an honest, generous and humorous way.” For mer NF U leader and now 20-year Liberal MP Wayne Easter said that despite their battles in his NFU days, Whelan was one of a kind. “He really was the farmers’ minister and whatever our battles, it was always clear where his interest lay,” Easter said. “And he wasn’t afraid to face his critics and debate them.” Whelan had no lack of critics during his often-tumultuous time as Canada’s 21st agriculture minister. He oversaw creation of supply management marketing boards in the 1970s and had to deal with an

uproar over rotting eggs under the care of the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency. He defended dairy farmers and yet found himself doused with milk by protesting producers in 1976 when the federal government rejected Whelan’s proposal for a dairy subsidy to compensate for low prices. He faced down Food Prices Review Board chair Beryl Plumptre and her criticisms of farm prices during the high inflation years of the 1970s. He fought for a crown corporation, Canagrex, to market Canadian farm products abroad and was stymied by Liberal cabinet colleagues and then the successor Conservatives. He also fought to turn what was then called Farm Credit Corporation into more of a true “farmers’ bank” but was also stymied by cabinet opposition. Still, in retrospect he is hailed as one of modern Canada’s most acknowledged and popular agriculture ministers.

A few weeks before his Feb. 19 death and already suffering from the aftermath of a stroke, former agriculture minister Eugene Whelan was still fretting about Canadian agricultural policy. This time, it was a threat to his cherished supply management system from within his beloved Liberal party. Whelan was watching the Liberal leadership race now underway and dismayed by a proposal from candidate Martha Hall Findlay to phase out the protectionist, production control and price-setting system. “He was really concerned about Martha’s supply management position,” Liberal MP Wayne Easter said. “Here he was, 88 years old and suffering from a stroke, and his head still was thinking about farmer interests. It was a sad conversation because it wasn’t his old voice on the phone but his old heart was there.” Easter is a former president of the National Farmers Union, who often battled Whelan and later became a colleague when he joined the Liberal party and was elected an MP in 1993. “One of the things about Gene was, as much as we fought when I was with the NFU, his door was always open to his critics,” said Easter. “It is so different now.” In the after math of Whelan’s death, friends and foes alike shared stories of his drive, fierce convictions about farmer rights and his sense of humour. Charlie Gracey, a key player in the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association when Whelan was promoting supply management for the beef industry in the 1970s and 1980s, said he and the minister often tangled on the marketing board issue, but Gracey never doubted his core instinct. “He was a tiger on supply management and we agreed to disagree because for our industry, he was wrong,” said Gracey. “But he was a tireless supporter of agriculture, and while he didn’t always say it well, people remember what he said.” As a former speechwriter for Whelan, Henry Heald remembers the minister as an agricultural advocate. “Normally, I didn’t have direct contact with him, but occasionally I

would get a call from him,” Heald said. “Put more of this in or more of that, but it was never politics, it was more about the importance of agriculture or supply management.” And then Whelan would take the speech prepared inside Agriculture Canada and use it as a small base to say what he really wanted to say. “Only once in my time there did I see in a news story any quotes that I wrote,” said Heald. “It must have been a time when the reporter wasn’t there and wrote from the text. Otherwise, Whelan spoke off the cuff.” As one of the Pierre Trudeau government’s most colourful ministers, Whelan was often the target of attacks. He relished telling and retelling one of those times. In 1974, a Conservative opposition MP found evidence that Whelan had used government resources to fly to Miami in the dead of winter. “I did fly to Miami,” the minister replied. A media and opposition feeding frenzy broke out about abuse of taxpayer dollars. When a reporter finally asked him about the trip, Whelan’s comment was that it was cold in Miami when he was there, -40. As he recounted the story in his 1986 memoir, the reporter said it is never that cold in Florida. “Whoever said anything about Florida? I’m talking about Miami, Man.” He was there for a Manitoba corn awards banquet. Whelan loved the story.

Too much wheat may create export challenge Tough competition | Black Sea wheat might squeeze Canada out of low value markets STORIES BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Analysts gave farmers a generally dour outlook on cereal grains at Grainworld this year, with heavy supplies making price gains difficult. Increasing production in major wheat exporters will create a competitive market for sales, and improved weather in North Africa reduces the chances that its durum demand will be as robust as during last year’s drought, analysts said during a panel discussion. If Canada produces 24 million tonnes of wheat in 2013, it will probably need to export 15 million tonnes, said Lawrence Yakielashek of Toepfer, an international grains marketer. That’s going to be a challenge if production recovers in Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan and India produces another big crop, he said. Only six to seven million tonnes can be sold to the top-paying markets l i k e Ja p a n , t h e U n i t e d St a t e s, Europe, Indonesia and China. “That means we’ve got to export roughly another eight million tonnes to markets where we’ve got competition with other people in the world,” said Yakielashek. Since those markets won’t pay extra for high quality wheat, farmers could be better off growing higher-yielding, lower quality wheat types, he said, repeating an argument he made at the 2012 Grainworld. If the world won’t pay for the best


hard red spring wheat, why not grow more profitable types of wheat? Yakielashek admitted that the tight price spread between low and high quality wheat is partly due to the drought that hit U.S. hard red winter wheat, but he said he believes that even in most normal years, there is often only a $1 per bushel premium for high protein wheat, and farmers can often net more from higher yielding, lower quality wheats. With Russia’s wheat production likely to grow by 15 million tonnes this year, Ukraine’s to increase by five million and Kazakhstan’s to jump by six million, Canada will find aggressive competitors. It will also have to get used to Indian grain exports, because the country hopes to export eight million tonnes in 2013. John Griffith of American grain company CHS gave a cautiously optimistic outlook for dur um, but warned farmers against too much hope for a major independent rally.

However, if farmers in Western Canada cut durum acres, the supply and demand situation could become more bullish. Durum supplies are adequate but not onerous “and are just enough to ser ve the market’s needs,” said Griffith. Earlier in the day, FarmLink Marketing released its estimates for spring planting, calling for an 8.1 percent reduction in durum seeded acreage this spring. “The market needs production from Canada,” he said. Durum has disappointed farmers this year with little or no premium compared to spring wheat. Griffith acknowledged that this wouldn’t encourage farmers to grow the crop this spring. Durum could regain its typical premium, he said, but it would probably happen if the price of other crops like corn and soybeans fell, rather than by an independent price rise by durum.

Canola screaming to be sold, says analyst Farmers have been getting rich with canola, and the crop hit the top of the agenda at Grainworld this year. However, analysts warned farmers to be careful about their profit potential with canola for the next crop year because many bearish factors underlie the market. “Basically, the market is screaming, ‘delivery your canola now,’ ” said Cargill analyst David Riemann, noting the strong inversion presently in

canola prices. Early this week the May contract was $10 higher than July and and about $54 stronger than new crop November. “There’s nothing wrong with just selling today.” Canola prices are high now and were extremely high a few months ago during the market rally inspired by the U.S. Midwest drought. However, analysts said a number of factors could spell the end to aggres-

sive buying by anxious processors: the huge South American soybean crop soon to hit the market, massive Asian palm oil harvests that keep increasing and a rebound in U.S. soybean production this year. Aaron Brown of Toepfer noted the re l a t i v e s t re n g t h o f Ca na d i a n canola and U.S. soybean futures prices compared to other world oilseed crop futures, with canola rising 14 percent in 2012-13 and

Malaysian palm oil falling 23 percent. He said it is a reflection of tightness that might loosen this coming crop year. A decent Canadian canola crop might still leave ending stocks at only nine percent of use, but it is much more comfortable than the present prediction of five percent stocks-touse at the end of 2012-13. Reimann did not offer a market prediction. Instead, he focused on

pegging the greatest risk to farmers, which is historically high prices that many might be taking for granted. Those prices could easily fade if the Northern Hemisphere produces big crops this summer. “We’re at some unbelievably high (price) levels in canola,” said Reimann. “Is the oilseed supply about to change?” CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE





Some leery about USDA corn harvest outlook Western corn belt dry | Subsoil moisture is needed to sustain crop if rainfall is lacking during the growing season BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Corn futures prices indicate the market is counting on a big rebound in U.S. production this year, but some analysts worry about poor subsoil moisture conditions. The December corn contract at the Chicago Board of Trade closed at $5.5025 per bushel Feb. 25. Last week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture predicted an average 2013-14 corn price of $4.80 per bu. based on its yield projection of 163.6 bu. per acre. Elwynn Taylor, extension climatologist at Iowa State University, said the forecast is based on normal growing conditions, but conditions are far from normal heading into spring. Subsoil moisture has not been replenished in an area of the corn belt west of Interstate 35, which runs from Minneapolis, Minnesota, through Kansas City, Missouri, and down to Dallas, Texas. Corn and soybean roots that typically extend 1.5 metres into the subsoil went down 2.5 metres last year searching for scarce water during one of the worst U.S. droughts in recorded history. S u b s o i l t y p i c a l l y s t o re s f i v e centimetres of plant available water per 30 cm of soil, which means many parts of the corn belt required 40 to 45 cm of precipitation between last October and mid-May to return the ground to a full soil moisture profile. The western corn belt never receives that much moisture in winter and early spring. “We know it’s not going to be fully recharged,” said Taylor. Grain market analysts such as Allendale, which is forecasting a 157 bu. per acre corn crop, say there is no correlation between early season subsoil moisture and yields. Joe Glauber, the USDA’s chief

He said the inversion in canola futures markets, with nearby prices far higher than prices a few months into the future, provides farmers with little reason to hoard old crop canola. It also suggests farmers consider protecting new crop prices. Locking in prices now and using call options contracts is a good idea for farmers who want to protect today’s forward prices and have a chance to gain in a possible future rally, he added. Put options can be used to protect against the downside. Most farmers might still think of canola as their big moneymaker, but poor canola results and strong wheat yields last year prompted many of them to return their attention to the oft-neglected cereal. That is expected to lead to fewer canola acres this spring, said FarmLink Marketing analyst Brenda Tjaden Lepp. She recently released her firm’s acreage predictions for the coming crop year, which show a seven percent decline in canola acres to 20 million and a 3.2 percent increase in spring wheat acres to 17.5 million.

Despite little subsoil moisture to rely on, the USDA predicts a return to normal corn yields assuming growing conditions are favourable. | FILE PHOTO

economist, echoed that sentiment. He recently told U.S. Senate lawmakers that early season moisture levels are a “poor predictor” of corn yields. Farmers in Iowa harvested above average corn yields half of the time that they started out with low subsoil moisture levels over the past 60 years, he added. Taylor strongly disagreed. He said corn and soybean crops require 50 cm of moisture to produce an average crop in the western corn belt. Those crops can get half of that moisture from the subsoil if it is fully recharged. He said crops get half of the moisture they require from the soil one out of every three years, which makes reduced yields inevitable if there is a moisture deficit. The USDA forecast is calling for trend line yields plus an extra 2.5 bu.

per acre. Taylor is counting on yields falling between last year’s 123 bu. crop and the trend line of 160 bu. He arrived at his forecast of an average yield of 147 bu. by picking the middle point and adding a bit more,

giving the crop the benefit of the doubt. Corn prices will be a lot higher than what is signalled in today’s December futures contract if Taylor is right, which will elevate most other grain, oilseed and special crop prices. Taylor said precipitation hasn’t historically recovered to normal in the year following a year when rain was as scant as it was in 2012, which is what the USDA is counting on in its baseline forecast. “It just never has.” Bruce Burnett, CWB weather and crop specialist, said there’s a reason farmers pay up to $15,000 per acre for farmland in the corn belt. “It’s an area of fairly reliable precipitation,” he said. “During the growing season, the expectation is that you’re going to get the moisture that you need to grow that crop.” Burnett has analyzed rainfall data and determined there’s about an 85 percent probability that a grower in Illinois will receive the optimal moisture he needs to grow a crop. However, in stark contrast is a winter wheat grower in western Kansas who has a 10 to 15 percent chance of getting the precipitation he needs for his moisture-starved crop. The catch is that the rain has to fall

at exactly the right time if there’s little available subsoil moisture on which to rely. A hot, dry spell during the first three weeks of July could severely diminish yield prospects, even if a month’s worth of rain falls in the final week. “The people who are saying that we don’t have to worry about subsoil moisture are planning on the precipitation to be very evenly distributed throughout this entire year,” said Burnett. “Some years that happens. Some years it doesn’t.” That’s why he’s “taking the under” on the USDA’s 163.6 bu. estimate. Burnett also said a large part of the predicted increase in harvested corn acres is happening in fringe areas such as North Dakota, where yields tend to be lower than they are in the corn belt. He also anticipates lower yields for much of the irrigated corn acres in Te x a s, O k l a h o m a a n d Ka n s a s because water reserves have been depleted and planting is set to begin in two to three weeks. Despite his reservations about the U.S. meeting trend line yields, Burnett doesn’t anticipate a repeat of 2012 because the odds are in favour of the corn belt region seeing a return to adequate precipitation levels.

Analyst says exports may fall short

Council looks for support from gov’t

Wheat market | While numbers are up, U.S. analyst is unsure if wheat exports will meet estimates BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The pace of North American wheat exports has been picking up, but the U.S. will still fall short of its 2012-13 target, says an analyst. Arlan Suderman, senior market analyst with Water Street Solutions of Peoria, Illinois, thinks exports could be 1.5 to two million tonnes short of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s 28.58 million tonne forecast. That would bump up ending stocks one to 1.5 million tonnes above the USDA’s estimate of 18.82 million tonnes, which is part of the reason wheat prices have faltered of late. The lower numbers come despite a vastly improved export program in recent weeks. U.S. wheat sales have struggled for most of the year, hovering in the range of 10 to 15 million bushels per week. However, they have increased to between 23.9 and 25.7 million bu. in the last two weeks. “Our best business generally comes after alternative sources have started to dry up, and that started happening over the last several months,” said Suderman. However, the United States is still 3.6 million tonnes behind the pace it needs to be at to meet the USDA’s export target. Some of that ground will be made up before the May 31 end of the U.S. crop year, but not all of it. “We’re certainly not in danger of running out of wheat,” said Suderman. The unexpected interest from China is one of the reasons for the recent surge in sales. There are reports that China bought 350,000 tonnes of wheat from the U.S. last week in addition to 100,000 tonnes from Canada and 400,000 tonnes from Australia. A report from the U.S. agricultural attaché’s office estimates China’s 2012 wheat production at 108 million tonnes, which is well below the USDA’s official estimate of 120.6 million tonnes. Fusarium head blight and other diseases hurt the crop. The attaché report said Chinese wheat prices rose nine percent

Market access | Report calls for new efforts to help canola growers BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

U.S. wheat sales have increased to between 23.9 and 25.7 million bu. per week recently, but they may still not meet the USDA’s estimate for the year. | FILE PHOTO between August and January, a strong indication that production and supply are far lower than China’s official production estimates. Bruce Burnett, weather and crop specialist for CWB, has been saying since January that China’s crop would be 15 to 20 million tonnes short of expectations. “We’re starting to be proven more or less right on this,” he said. Burnett believes China is replenishing its wheat stocks at a time when international prices are attractive relative to domestic prices. A second year of substandard quality and poor production in China would significantly affect wheat markets. Burnett said it took longer than he anticipated for markets to turn to U.S. wheat, but there are strong signs that is finally happening. For example, Turkey recently bought U.S. soft red winter wheat because its usual suppliers in the Black Sea region have run out.

“That does not typically happen,” he said. However, Burnett agreed with Suderman that U.S. wheat sales will have to do some “heavy lifting” to meet the USDA’s export target. Exporters will have to string together quite a few weeks of impressive sales, he added. Burnett said Canada’s wheat sales have been strong. CWB expects an export program one to two million tonnes bigger than the 13.9 million tonnes shipped in 2011-12. He believes that is still feasible, depending on logistics and how early spring fieldwork starts. Agriculture Canada pegs exports at 14.6 million tonnes. Suderman said how the U.S. export program finishes will largely depend on Brazilian demand. “That gives us our best hope for increasing exports as we go through the rest of the winter and into spring.” In the meantime, all eyes are on the

condition of the U.S. winter wheat crop. It received welcome moisture in the form of wet snow last week. There was another storm at the beginning of this week, although it was accompanied by strong winds that blew away some of the snow cover. Suderman said the weather is expected to return to a dry pattern until the crop comes out of dormancy in mid to late March, which would bring back a bullish sentiment to wheat markets. “We will not run out of wheat before the end of the current marketing year. The question is, will we in the next marketing year?” he said. The bullish sentiment would be supported by expectations that eight to 10 million tonnes of wheat could find its way into U.S. feed markets this summer because of falling wheat prices and tight corn supplies before harvest.


Flax production in Black Sea region tumbles but will still meet demand BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Last year’s disappointing flax harvest in Kazakhstan is sending oncelost European business back Canada’s way. Production fell 42 percent from 2011 because of severe drought in northern Kazakhstan, where flax is grown, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The country has emerged as a major producer and exporter of flax in recent years. Its growers are capitalizing on high prices for the crop and the void in the European market caused by Canada’s Triffid incident, in which traces of an unauthorized genetically modified variety were found in shipments to Europe.

According to Oil World, Kazakhstan was the third largest exporter of flax in 2011-12, behind only Russia and Canada. Ninety percent of its sales go to the European Union, but exports are expected to fall dramatically this year. The USDA forecasts 100,000 tonnes in 2013, which is 57 percent lower than last year ’s 230,000 tonnes. Kazakhstan’s flax stocks as of Jan. 1 were down 54 percent from the same date a year ago, the USDA said. Grant Fehr, flax-special crops manager with Keystone Grain Ltd. in Manitoba, has heard that 600,000 tonnes of Black Sea flax are available to service the EU market when Russian and Ukrainian production is included. Last year, 750,000 tonnes

were available. It is still an ample supply, but logistical problems are preventing Black Sea exporters from consistently providing product to European buyers, which provides Canadian exporters with the opportunity to bridge the gaps. Fehr provided a price quote to a buyer in Poland last week, which is the first time that has happened since 2010. There has also been interest from England. He isn’t sure if Canadian flax can be priced into a market that has become accustomed to cheaper Black Sea flax, but it’s nice to have another possible outlet for the crop. However, growers shouldn’t expect a price bump resulting from Kazakhstan’s shortage, he added. “How much higher can flax go? Guys can talk about it going to $20 a bushel

like 2004, when we had the frost. I don’t see that happening,” he said. “Nobody is going to pay that. We’re right now at the peak. If guys aren’t selling now, give your heads a shake.” Fehr thinks the chances of flax prices falling far outweigh the odds they will rise. He believes the commodity bubble is about to burst and soybeans will fall to $12 per bu. by June. Dave Sefton, a flax grower from Broadview, Sask., said flax competes against other oilseeds, which are having a hard time trading above their recent price ranges. “We need to look at what canola has been doing and what soybeans are doing, and they just have a hard time breaking through that resistance level,” he said.

Canada’s canola industry sees a big role for government in the future. However, it should continue to be a supporting role that grows out of needs identified by the industry, says the Canola Council of Canada in a new strategy document released during the Grainworld conference Feb. 25. “Market access is critical for the Canadian canola industry,” says the document, entitled Market Access For The Future. “Aligned commitment of industry and government forms the backbone of successful market access efforts. Commitment from the ministers of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and International Trade, senior leadership within the Market Access Secretariat, government representatives of canola growing conferences and officials within various departments, embassies and agencies has been instr umental to improve market access. Industry must similarly demonstrate its commitment to be an effective partner for government to accomplish mutual goals.” The report pointed to the successful efforts to re-open parts of the Chinese canola crushing industry after China imposed an import ban in 2009 because of blackleg concerns. Exports to China are still restricted, but many major Chinese crushing plants can now receive Canadian canola. “Constant communication at multiple levels of government was a key component to success, including support at the highest levels with the prime minister of Canada present at the signing of the memorandum of understanding on blackleg research,” said the report. The canola council listed future market access issues that will be central to ensuring that Canadian canola can reach most world markets: • Reducing tariffs. • Ensuring sanitary and phytosanitary regulations aren’t excuses to block trade but are sciencebased. • Judging biotechnological innovations by science-based standards and not using them as trade obstructions. • Developing sustainability definitions that cannot be abused to block trade. The canola industry’s approach fits closely with the federal government’s trade and market access strategies. The connection of the canola industry to the federal government was strengthened last year when canola council president JoAnne Buth became a senator.



U.S. storm, USDA big crop outlook pressure markets





he first major dump of snow this winter in the U.S. hard red winter wheat region put downward pressure on wheat and corn prices. Some areas of Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas received up to 60 centimetres of snow in two blizzards, one late last week and the other Feb. 24-25. Nebraska was also hit, but accumulations were closer to 30 cm. Moisture also fell in the corn belt. It takes about 10 cm of snow to make one cm of water, so the wheat crop will require more moisture. However, the break in the drought is psychologically important, even though the March to May outlook for the key western areas of Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma is for drier and warmer than normal conditions. Corn and wheat were under pressure all through February as expectations grew that the United States might produce a huge corn crop in 2013-14. The downward pressure was offset last week by strong oilseed futures. Worries about dry weather in Argentina and shipping delays because of port congestion and labour unrest in Brazil supported soybean values. Strong U.S. soybean exports were also positive for prices. Brazil has undertaken a multibillion-dollar port modernization program, which includes plans to privatize many loading facilities that are now required to hire from a central union labour pool. If privately owned, the facilities could hire from other sources. There was a short strike Feb. 21 and if more follow in March, it could

cause further disruptions in a system where dozens of ships are already awaiting to load even while the Brazilian harvest rapidly proceeds. That prevents a price-depressing flood of soybeans hitting the market and helps keep customers going to the U.S. Moisture arrived on the weekend in Argentina, preventing a disaster, but damage is already done. The local Rosario Grain Exchange put the soybean crop at less than 48 million tonnes, down from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s estimate of 53 million. The problems in South America were the only counterweight to a lot of price depressing news last week. The USDA’s Outlook conference issued reports forecasting a return to big domestic corn and soybean crops so long as there is average spring and summer weather, something that has been missing for the last three years. Reduced seeded area and dryness in the hard red winter wheat crop should lower wheat production, but stocks are far from tight. The USDA sees corn production up 35 percent, soybeans up 13 percent and wheat down 7.4 percent. The stocks-to-use ratio for corn is expected to climb to 16.7 percent by the end of the 2013-14 crop year, up from 5.6 at the end of 2012-13. Soybeans’ ending stocks-to-use ratio of 7.6 percent would be above the five-year average of five percent and the highest in the past seven years. Wheat stocks remain far from tight, with the ending stocks-to-use ratio for 2013-14 projected at 28 percent, down just slightly from the 28.2 percent expected for 2012-13. The USDA’s average corn price forecast for the crop year is $4.80, down 33 percent. The soybean average is $10.50 per bu., down 27 percent. The wheat price was pegged at $7, down 11 percent.

WP LIVESTOCK REPORT HOGS FALL U.S. packers reduced hours and slowed chain speeds to try to push pork prices higher and hog prices lower. They succeeded in getting their operating margins back into positive territory. Weak pork demand has hurt packer margins. Cash hog prices fell sharply. Iowa-southern Minnesota hogs delivered to packing plants fell to $58 US per hundredweight, down from $62 Feb. 15. The estimated pork carcass cutout rose to $81.57 Feb. 22, up from $80 Feb. 15. Weekly slaughter to Feb. 23 was estimated at 2.066 million, down from 2.145 million the previous week. Slaughter was 2.124 million last year.

BISON STEADY The Canadian Bison Association

said Grade A bulls in the desirable 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 pound. In the live market, quality 2012 bulls sold for $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 2011 heifers were $1.70.

HEAVY LAMBS FALL Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported 1,151 sheep and lambs and 18 goats traded Feb. 19. Lightweight lambs sold steady on good demand. Heavy lambs sold under pressure at $2-$5 per cwt. lower on the top end. Sheep sold barely steady to $5 per cwt. lower, while overly fat and extremely thin types sold under extreme pressure. Goats sold steady.

Meat trade issues with China and Russia over the U.S. use of ractopamine in cattle and hogs threatened to limit exports and push prices lower. However, new wider access to Japan caused U.S. beef exports to that country to soar. Snowstorms in the United States limited cattle deliveries to slaughterhouses. Worries about the impact of forced U.S. government spending reductions beginning March 1 on meat inspections also affected the market. In Canada, the fed steer weighted average price was $114.71 per hundredweight, down 18 cents, and heifers were $113.58, down 30 cents. Sales volume was 12,144 head, down one percent. Some heavy cattle were forced to move, but feedlot supplies generally are current. The Alberta cash-to-futures basis widened to -$13 from -$11.27. The loonie fell below par, but U.S. buyer interest was not significant. Weekly western Canadian fed slaughter to Feb. 16 totalled 30,036 head, up seven percent from the previous week. Weekly fed exports to Feb. 9 rose seven percent to 6,525 head. Futures might be stronger this week, which may attract American packer interest.

COW RAIL BIDS INCREASE Slaughter cow prices have rallied close to six percent since the start of the year, but are $2 per cwt. below


year ago levels. Cows bought on speculation during the fall are being marketed earlier than anticipated because hard winter conditions have stressed feed reserves. D1, D2 cows were steady at $69-$79 per cwt. and D3 at $60-$71. Rail bids of $141-$146 were up $1. Alberta packer demand for butcher bulls improved. Average prices have risen $8.25 per cwt. over the past four weeks. They averaged $82.67 per cwt. last week. Weekly non-fed exports to Feb. 9 totalled 7,913, up four percent. Packer interest should remain solid, as front end supplies are likely starting to tighten.

FEEDERS DOWN The weaker fed market, expensive feed and lower futures stalled feeder prices, which fell about $1 per cwt. for steers and heifers. The weaker loonie sparked U.S. buying interest in the cash market. Auction volume was 24,710 head, down 31 percent. Feeder exports in the first quarter of the year typically ramp up as American buyers target backgrounded feeders. Weekly Canadian feeder exports to Feb. 9 totalled 7,835, up 25 percent. It was the most since May 2010. There are rumours of southern Alberta feedlots buying U.S. corn. Western Canadian feedlots might be losing their cost of gain advantage, leading to increased feeder cattle exports. Supply concerns and elevated


feeder exports could have some buyers stepping off the sideline to take on inventory. As well, the softer Canadian dollar should support all classes of feeders.

BEEF MIXED The U.S. Choice cutout value to Feb. 22 was $182.35 US, down $1.18, and Select was $180.20, up 60 cents. The weekly AAA Canadian cutout to Feb. 15 was $175.13 Cdn, up 47 cents. AA was $171.56, up $1.37.

U.S. CATTLE ON FEED The U.S. cattle-on-feed report for Feb. 1 showed that the number of cattle placed in U.S. feedlots in January rose for the first time since May. Drought is forcing producers to move cattle to feedlots. The number on feed Feb. 1 was 11.073 million, down six percent from last year. The number placed in January was 1.876 million, up two percent. Analysts, on average, expected a 0.4 percent increase. Marketings in January were 1.917 million, up six percent. Other disappearance was 79,000, down two percent.

CFA membership drops but still important voice


he Canadian Federation of Agriculture recently lost another member, fuelling new questions about whether the organization can continue to be relevant in an increasingly fractionalized industry. The simple answer is, of course it can. The landscape around the CFA might be changing, but just as agricultural businesses, farmers and other organizations find new roles, so too has the CFA. The Canadian Pork Council probably didn’t surprise many people when it announced that it was pulling out of the CFA after 40 years. The CFA, with its powerful core of members from the supply-managed industries of dairy, poultry and egg producers, has been a staunch supporter of that system. It has lobbied the federal government to hold fast in international trade talks to save the tariff rates and quota protections that prop up the system, even though others say that defence comes at the expense of freer trade gains for other sectors, including pork. The loss of the pork council was just the latest loss for the CFA. The prairie wheat pools are gone, replaced by multinationals that care little for getting involved in day-to-day policy discussions with an umbrella farm group. Farmers have set up numerous commodity groups. Grain Growers of Canada has assumed much of the responsibilities for representing grain farmer interests in Ottawa, while canola, flax, pulses, cattle, pork and most other sectors all have groups specifically dedicated to their interests. That leaves the CFA with a core of supply-managed industries, provincial general farm groups and Alberta Sugar Beet Growers. We are living in a world of niche markets, in which farmers were encouraged to diversify and have done so with great success. So it should not surprise anybody that the CFA finds itself unable to be all things

to all these varied interests. But that does not make it unnecessary. In fact, if taken too far, a less representative and powerful CFA should set off warning bells. Past governments have expressed difficulty in finding a strong, central voice that can speak on key issues for the majority of farmers. And we should be careful about making it too easy for governments to pick and choose who it will invite to consultations. Having one strong voice that can be heard above the din to give clear indications where farmers stand on key issues such as farm safety nets, environmental initiatives, food policies, rail costs and biofuel can have huge benefits. This government in particular has shown scant interest in gathering input from those representing a wide array of farmer opinion. There are many issues on which far mers still have common ground. Supply management protections versus freer trade need not be the defining issue for the CFA. Most countries enter trade negotiations with key industries they want to protect. Canada’s stand on supply management while also pressing for greater access to international markets for other sectors is not unique and not necessarily at odds. The CFA could back out of the trade debate completely and declare itself as having no official stand on international trade matters, which could anger a core group of members, especially in Ontario and Quebec. But it shouldn’t have to. The many sectors of agriculture have more in common than not. The two camps of the trade issue can co-exist and should. As well, it might be possible for the CFA and other farm groups to form coalitions and co-operate on areas of mutual concern outside of trade.

s it indifference, smugness or a genuine belief that hunger and food insecurity are simply not Canadian problems but something Canadians watch on television from far-off developing countries? Maybe it’s a combination of all of the above. Whatever the reason, a scathing report to the United Nations this

week critical of Canadian food policy and widespread food insecurity in the midst of a food-producing powerhouse provoked almost no reaction in Canada. There was little political reaction and precious little farm sector reaction. Olivier De Schutter, United Nations special rapporteur on the right to food, found Canadian food and poverty policy seriously lacking. Hunger is usually the result of poverty, he wrote, and as many as three million Canadians face poverty and hundreds of thousands use food banks. De Schutter said social assistance programs and minimum wage laws fall well short of helping those who must often choose between housing and adequate food.

He supported local food strategies and was critical of Canada’s agriculture policy that emphasizes exports and big “efficient” operations. He called for a national strategy and legislation aimed at guaranteeing the right to food. Of course, that is a vague and loaded term: the right to food under what conditions? Does it mean society owes you food even if you make bad spending choices with the money you have or the chances offered? What obligations do individuals have? Would an emphasis on local food really make it more affordable to the poor? Farmers’ market prices can be higher than corporate food company prices. Would a de-emphasis on exports from a food surplus country do any-

thing more than impoverish or drive out of business many farmers who depend on exports? What would be the gain? Canadian agriculture as it now exists could not be sustained if it depended largely on a domestic market of 33 million when many sectors now export more than half of what they produce. Still, the deafening silence in the wake of De Schutter’s report is surprising. Poverty, hunger and food insecurity are realities in Canada, and many farm groups and agricultural organizations recognize it through their support of food banks. But is charity really an answer? Can we not strive for a better and more equitable solution as a blessed and affluent nation capable of feeding

our citizens and a good portion of the world if we wanted? This critical report would be an opportunity for farm groups and leaders to move away from selfinterest to leading a discussion on why Canada has hunger in the midst of plenty and whether farm policies and pricing are part of the problem? The federal Conservatives are disinterested in the debate. Last year when De Schutter visited Canada, agriculture minister Gerry Ritz dismissed him as a lefty with a political agenda who should spend his time looking at countries where there are real food problems. Actually, Canada for all its riches, is one of those countries. That is not a political agenda comment, but simply a reality.





Seed rights versus patent protection

U.S. insurance programs leave farmers with minimal risk



he Bowman vs. Monsanto hearing at the U.S. Supreme Court is big news in the United States, and we are seeing ripple effects here in Canada. An interesting byproduct of this case is how interest groups are reframing it in the media. Although some headlines might suggest otherwise, this case is not about farm-saved seed. Instead, it is about something called the “patent exhaustion doctrine,” which applies to several industries and companies, even outside agriculture. Indiana farmer Vernon Bowman, the plaintiff, argues that in the case of Monsanto’s patented soybeans, the company’s rights were terminated after the first sale, and those rights should not extend to progeny that embodies Monsanto’s patented technology. By his own admission, Bowman bought commodity soybean seeds from a grain elevator, knowing that they were likely to contain the patented technology, and deliberately planted them on his farm — not for one year, but for seven. When I refer to interest groups, I’m talking about non-government organizations, the ones that have an axe to grind with “big ag.” Many of the stories prominent in the media are commentaries from representatives of the Center for Food Safety (CFS) and Save Our Seeds (SOS). These interest groups take issue with genetically modified food in general. Both groups challenged Monsanto last December, using a “friend of the

court” brief they filed in support of Bowman. In effect, they rolled this recent case into a “‘save the seeds” campaign, spinning stories into compelling themes such as “who can own life?” and “seed rights of farmers are threatened.” In one of her most recent articles, CFS and SOS chief executive officer Debbie Barker stated: “The Supreme Court ought to rule in favour of Bowman so that instead of farmers becoming modern-day serfs of agrichemical companies, they can regain traditional seed rights.” What exactly does Barker mean by “traditional?” Farmers have been using certified seed as part of their operations for more than 100 years in Canada. Few farmers, if any, breed seed these days. In his opinion piece in CNN’s Eatocracy, Indiana farmer Brian Scott said: “If we wanted to breed our own varieties, I’m sure we could, but I look at it right now as division of labour. Seed companies are great at coming up with great products, and farmers are great at turning those products into a bounty of food, feed, fuel, and fibre.” Modern seeds help farmers extract higher yields and are also an important part of their risk-management strategies. Not only do farmers benefit from clean seed, but new seed varieties also allow them to plant the best, locally adapted and productive package of genetics available. For the record, nobody forces a farmer to agree to the terms of a seed purchase. If farmers wish to forgo the advantages of a certified seed variety, they can use older, unrestricted crop

varieties. There are hundreds of varieties in the public domain — offpatent and non genetically modified — that can be freely accessed. The genesis of the Feb. 19 Supreme Court hearing lies in other lower court cases that have examined the issue of patent exhaustion for many months. All of which, by the way, have resulted in the courts’ ruling in favour of Monsanto. What would it mean if the Supreme Court reverses lower courts’ rulings in its decision? Let’s look first at the value of patents. Patents are a provision of exclusive rights granted to an inventor for a limited period of time. In exchange, the inventor must publicly disclose the invention. Companies need to protect their inventions with patents so that they can generate revenue to recover their development costs and return a profit for shareholders. It takes more than 10 years and more than $100 million to bring a GM crop variety to the market. Why would anyone invest in developing these varieties if they couldn’t protect that investment? It is important to note that protecting crop varieties is not limited to the private sector. The public sector also protects its investments through intellectual property rights (IPRs) mechanisms such as plant breeders’ rights. IPRs exist for a reason. If there are no property rights, there is no protection. If there is no protection, there is no return on investment. If there is no return on investment, there is no innovation, in both the public and private sectors. If that happens, we all lose.

Don’t let some of the headlines fool you. The Bowman vs. Monsanto case is not about farm-saved seed. There is no dispute among the parties about the facts in this case. Patented soybeans are grown on more than 90 percent of the 275,000 soybean farms in the U.S. When Bowman bought the commodity seed, he knew exactly what he was buying. By planting those seeds, Bowman was using copies of the company’s technology for personal gain, just as if he had copied music or software and sold it for a profit. He didn’t have that right and he knew it. Reports coming out of the hearing suggest that the Supreme Court is leaning in favour of Monsanto. The alternative would be unthinkable. The implications would be huge not only for modern agriculture but also for self-replicating technologies in a wide variety of industries that rely on IPRs to protect their investments, such as software, vaccines and cell lines. Without investments made by agricultural companies and the public sector, we wouldn’t have our high yielding varieties and the promise of new ones in the future. Without access to innovative crop varieties, we would be hard-pressed to meet the challenges of a growing world population, shrinking arable land base, environmental issues, disease, pests and drought.

Private revenue insurance gains popularity HURSH ON AG



here’s a new kid on the block when it comes to income insurance for prairie grain producers. Global Ag Risk Solutions (GARS) is going into its third crop year with a production cost insurance program. Total liability was $75 million last year, and this year it’s aiming for $400 million. While that sounds significant, it wouldn’t take too many large farms to reach the goal. Interest is increasing in this private revenue insurance as AgriStability scales back dramatically. Grant Kosior, one of the founders of Moose Jaw, Sask.-based GARS, says

some large re-insurance companies are now backing the product, making it possible to sign up more growers. Grain farmers receive a quote for premiums based on their specific circumstances and financial records. At least five years of accrual financial statements are needed. The program covers farmers’ big three input costs: fertilizer, seed and chemicals. It calculates how much they’ve spent per acre in the past, but there’s a generous allowance for spending more with no additional premium cost. The coverage is based on what farmers actually spend on these input costs. This is meant to encourage investments that will improve the overall return. If a hailed crop warrants a fungicide application to maximize the return, that’s good for the producer and it actually decreases GARS’s liability. On top of the basic coverage for the big three inputs, a producer can also choose enhanced coverage in $25 per acre increments up to a maximum of $100.

Let’s say a farm’s basic coverage for input costs comes to $125 per acre. Enhanced coverage can take that up to as high as $225 an acre. Of course, the more enhanced coverage you choose, the higher the premium. The premium can vary dramatically between farms, so Kosior is hesitant to suggest specific numbers, saying instead that premiums are in roughly the same range as hail insurance premiums. Why spend extra money for GARS when you can buy crop insurance? Crop insurance provides little protection for a drop in grain prices. A 30 bushel per acre wheat crop may not trigger a crop insurance claim, but your gross revenue is only $150 an acre if the price drops to $5 per bushel. As well, crop insurance provides no protection for rising input costs. Kosior advises producers enrolling in GARS to maintain a 50 or 60 percent crop insurance coverage level to maintain the Establishment Benefit and Unseeded Acreage Benefit. Insurance premiums go down dramatically at low levels of yield coverage.

Kosior also acknowledges that producers who have a good-looking crop may want to buy hail insurance to protect their upside profit potential. Money paid in crop or hail insurance does not decrease a payment from GARS. However, Kosior is not a fan of AgriStability. While it’s relatively cheap to stay enrolled, he believes there’s now a small likelihood of receiving any meaningful support. Another advantage he claims for GARS is that it’s bankable. Lending institutions should be able to use GARS as loan collateral, decreasing their need to tie up land. Kosior has an ambitious plan to grow Global Ag Risk Solutions into a program with a $1 billion per year liability. If that kind of success is in the offing, other players may start offering copycat programs or a big company may come in and buy out the program. There’s lots of interest in how it all plays out.

Even after a crop disaster, the outlook is rosy for American producers thanks to farm programs


have been reminded during recent visits to the United States why the farm machinery and inputs companies continue to do well in what should have been a drought disaster for most of the country. Four years of high corn and soybean prices have helped create a financially secure grain and oilseed sector, and this is backstopped by federal crop insurance. In most cases, American producers can receive a profit over and above their operating costs, even in a wreck such as 2012. An American farmer can insure up to 85 percent of revenue or yield in most crops for about $40 per acre, plus a 49 percent government subsidy that he doesn’t pay. A producer who might normally grow 147 bushel corn and see $5.50 per bu. at the farmgate would be assured of receiving $650 an acre. The value of the insurance indemnity varies greatly based on crops and regions, but the crop insurance payout would have been about $190 per acre last year for a Minnesota producer in the above example who grew a drought-damaged 90 bu. corn crop. Insurance is key The cost of production, including machinery and a return for labour, should be about $420 in a corn and soybean rotation. Land ownership returns or rental have to be taken from the $230 margin. However, most producers I have spoken with said crop insurance would leave them in the black for 2012. They won’t be making any changes to their farm machinery buying or input planning for this year, despite a 40 percent reduction in their yields. If that farmer is able to harvest his normal 147 bu. corn this year, he will be looking at a margin of about $300 per acre, even with a price drop to $4.80. He might need it with land rentals in the $130 to $190 range and prices at about $4,000 per acre in Minnesota, but he won’t sweat it if it doesn’t work out.

durum in the U.S. have been largely on par with Canadian prices and it therefore follows that single-desk premiums under the CWB were mostly fiction and wishful thinking. First a little background. Canada produces a surplus of durum and hard spring wheat ; all of it produced in Western Canada. Canadians consume about 20 percent of our production and we export the rest. Between 10 and 20 percent of this goes to the U.S. market. The remaining is exported off-shore. The U.S. has it the other way around. It produces about 80 percent of its requirements and the balance was met by purchases from the CWB. Responding to a favourable ruling

by the International Trade Commission, John Gillcrist, chair of the National American Millers Association had this to say, “As we have testified over and over, we are forced to pay higher, not lower, prices for Canadian wheat. It’s so obvious, at least it is to us. The fact that U.S. millers consistently buy more than 80 percent of their supplies from U.S. growers proves we get no price discounts from Canada.” Because the U.S. had no surplus of these grains to ship to the Canadian market, the CWB had our domestic market all to itself. Did the CWB get a premium from wheat sales to Canadian domestic users as well? In a letter to me, Gordon Harrison,

President of the Canadian National Millers Association, had this to say, “…the CWB’s price determination and selling prices to Canadian mills were extensively examined by more than one U.S. International Trade Commission investigation, and found to be compliant with international trade principles. What that means, to the best of my knowledge, is that the CWB’s selling prices to Canadian processors were equal to or greater than selling prices to U.S. importers and end users.” One more thing. Kevin Hursh places great importance to his discovery that grain prices in Canada and the U.S. are now at par. I would have been surprised if they were not. Under the CWB monopoly

there were two American markets: one in Canada and one in the U.S. Now there is only one. Grain now moves freely across the border where all North American production is available to be bought and sold. This is important. Grain merchants bidding for grain will know that on average 60 percent of Canadian production will have to find a home somewhere off-shore. Under the CWB, the Canadian wheat surplus did not affect the domestic market on either side of the border. It is my belief that North American millers (who were once paying a premium) are now buying grain at a price diluted by lower offshore returns. Perhaps Kevin Hursh can explain

CHEAP FOOD COSTS To the Editor: On Feb.5 and 6 in Regina, an Agriculture Awareness Summit was held. The idea is to advance the awareness and profile of the agri-food industry. Industry is on the offensive to convince producers and consumers the technologies of conventional production are acceptable and necessary to feed an increasing population. Consumers and producers are dealing with symptoms created by poor soil and crop health, and are questioning production methods, the quality, and type of food produced. Consumers and many producers are convinced science is spin doctored to meet the needs of industry, and believe there are alternatives, which are available and necessary. Soil re-mineralization, with effective biological carbon management, is the only way to sustainably increase food’s yield and quality. Chemical and genetically modified organism use sets limits on production potential and nutritional value. When one to five percent of wet production removed from a field is soil minerals, plus the stress of pesticides on soil biology, it becomes understandable why food crops are susceptible to low yields, low quality, contamination and insect/disease infestation. It becomes apparent how this food cannot meet the full nutritional re q u i re m e n t s  o f a n i m a l s a n d humans. Through malnutrition and acute persistent toxin exposure, future h u m a n g e n e ra t i o n s’ g e n e t i c s (accurate cell replication and function) have been compromised. Consumers are aware of the symptoms delivered by the modern agrifood industry. Industry should deliver nutritious, sustainably produced food rather than propaganda, and industry catered garbage agronomy. Cheap food has and will continue to cost society.

INCORRECT STATEMENT To the Editor: Re: Letter to Editor Feb. 7 by Eric Sagan, wrongly suggesting the Grain Growers are receiving over $208,000 of federal money. It is regrettable that Mr. Sagan has his facts so completely wrong, and I appreciate the opportunity to set the record straight.  In the absence of active wheat commissions or a wheat council, last year the Grain Growers was approved under the Agri-Marketing Program

for a maximum of $50,000 to help ensure continuity of a producer presence in our key markets. We committed $15,000 of the funds to the Canadian International Grains Institute for a long-term industry strategy for wheat, and we have offered to assist both the Grains Institute and the CWB for upcoming trade missions. To date we have had several meetings with U.S. wheat associations to help ensure the border remains open to trade, as well as worked with our trade negotiators in current talks to ensure wheat and other grains are a priority. The program requires matching dollars, we have to put up matching dollars for any of the remainder of the money, which can only be used for promoting Canadian wheat and helping ensure we keep markets open for our farmers. The AMP program is a valuable

tool for export-orientated sectors and is also used by canola, pulse, cattle, pork and many other commodity associations to ensure we have access to key markets ,which return a profit back to Canadian farmers. Irmi Critcher, Director Grain Growers of Canada Fort St. John, B.C.

CONSERVATIVE LAP DOG To the Editor: The Harper government has been using the phrase “standing up for farmers” when they make agricultural announcements. But I think “sticking it to farmers” is more realistic. A case in point is the firing of Adrian Measner, (chief executive officer) of


the farmer-controlled Canadian Wheat Board in 2006. Although farmers paid for Mr. Measner’s salary, the Conservatives fired him because he did not toe the Harper line on destroying the singledesk of the Canadian Wheat Board. Not only did farmers have to pay for the severance of Mr. Measner, but they also had to pay to search for a replacement and hire a new CEO at several times the annual salary of Mr. Measner. All this because Mr. Measner understood the wishes of the majority of farmers, rather than be a lap dog for the Conservatives. So, although the Conservatives directly cost farmers millions of dollars, they have not had the decency to return the farmers’ money they wasted because of their ideology. At one point they claimed they would return the money to the pool accounts. However, that initiative vanished


and the farmer-elected directors initiated a court action to recover that money on farmers’ behalf. Farmers need to ask the present CEO if he is still pursuing that court case or have the government appointed directors, his present masters, told him to abandon that case, be a good lap dog and wait for his next order from (agriculture) minister (Gerry) Ritz?

B.C. case throws apprenticeships in doubt Unpaid labour | Farmers reassess apprenticeship programs after organic producer pays up BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

A Vancouver Island organic farmer has learned the hard way that there is no such thing as an unpaid apprentice. A husband and wife, who were apprentices on Evelyn Pereira’s organic farm in the Cowichan Valley north of Victoria, filed a complaint last summer with British Columbia’s labour ministry, saying they had worked at the farm for several

months and were not paid minimum wage. After consulting with labour lawyers and learning that she had little chance of winning the case, Pereira participated in a provincial government mediation process in January. She offered the couple a portion of their outstanding wages and they accepted. “What I have learned is (anyone) in B.C. that takes on anybody to do any kind of work on their farm and does not pay them minimum wage is run-

Pereira and her husband, Jesse, were considering selling their farm last spring, when a couple in their late 50s and early 60s expressed interest in buying the farm. However, they first wanted to learn more about organic farming, and Pereira agreed to take them on as apprentices. As part of a verbal agreement, Pereira paid them a stipend of $500 per month each to cover living expenses. The couple also received $25 per week in meat produced on the farm. “It started out really well, partly because on most farms April is slower, so there is lots of time for talking, learning and teaching,” Pereira said. “(But) when the real work time started, they had a hard time adjusting to (the reality) that there wasn’t four hours per day to talk anymore.” Pereira and the couple began to argue over compensation. For instance, Pereira has a two acre patch of blackberries and was planning to hire pickers for the crop. The couple sent her a letter, stating they expected the same rate of pay as the workers hired to pick the berries. “ We s a i d n o. You a re h e re a s apprentices…. So, they were upset about that,” Pereira said. Other disputes flared up, such as sick time compensation and the start of the workday. “Because we run livestock we start at 7 a.m. …. (but) they wouldn’t come out (of their RV) until 9 a.m.” In July, the couple informed Pereira that they were quitting. “I can tell you it was a great relief.” However, Pereira received a letter from the couple three weeks later telling her they had contacted B.C. Employment Standards and notified the government that they worked on the farm but were not paid. They also sent Pereira a provincial government form claiming they had worked 12 hours a day, seven days per week, while at Terra Nossa farm. “He was looking for around $11,000 and she was looking for $8,000,” in back pay, Pereira said. “(But) because they didn’t send it registered mail, I chose to ignore it. Then, three weeks after that, I got a phone call from Employment Standards.” Alarmed, Pereira consulted several labour lawyers, who told her the same thing — she had no case. “In B.C., a definition of an employee is somebody who comes onto your place of business and does the work that an employee would do. Technically, then, these people were doing the work as if I had hired an employee.” Pereira’s case was based on a verbal a g re e m e nt s h e ma d e w i t h t h e apprentices, but she said a written agreement doesn’t provide legal protection for a farmer either. “Employment Standards told me that nobody can sign away their CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE






Be diligent when welcoming ‘wwoofers,’ says organics official ‘Willing workers’ | Producers should be familiar with their province’s labour legislation because unpaid labour might not be free BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Hundreds of young Canadians and international travelers volunteer every summer to work on organic farms in Canada. Commonly known as wwoofers, which stands for willing workers on organic farms or worldwide opportunities on organic farms, volunteers trade their labour for a room, meals and a unique experience on an organic farm. The website, which connects wwoofers to organic farms, lists dozens of farmers in Western Canada who accept wwoofers, primarily in the summer. However, most wwoofers are not paid an hourly wage for pulling weeds, picking berries and feeding chickens, which contravenes regulations in provinces such as British Columbia and Manitoba, where wwoofers are likely entitled to a minimum hourly wage. “ Th e re’s n o t h i n g t hat w o u l d exempt them from the minimum provisions of the employment standards code,” said Jared Beakley, client services manager for Manitoba’s employment standards branch. Farms in Alberta and Saskatchewan are exempt from provincial employment standards, which means wwoofers on organic farms in those provinces do not have the right to minimum wage. Beakley said in Manitoba employee complaints and resulting investiga-


tions are handled on a case by case basis, but in general, if a farmer and a wwoofer have an employer-employee relationship, the farm worker is entitled to minimum wage. “You could enter into whatever agreement you want … (but) if we determine it’s an employer-employee relationship, they’re going to be owed pay for the time that they worked.” Beakley hadn’t heard the term wwoofer before, so it’s unlikely that someone has filed a complaint in Manitoba requesting back pay for time worked on an organic farm. However, two workers recently filed

a complaint in British Columbia requesting minimum wage, and an organic farmer was forced to pay compensation. Certifed Organic Associations of B.C. president Mary Forstbauer, who farms near Chilliwack, said the case has unsettled the province’s organic industry. Wwoofers usually don’t expect a wage for their work, but some of them make substantial contributions to the farm. “Some of them work really hard … and then some farmers say, ‘would you like to stay and work and I’ll pay you for the work?’ Other farmers will take advantage of the graciousness of

the wwoofer,” Forstbauer said. “Farmers in general and organic farmers in particular, should be prepared to pay for the work that’s being done.” Wwoofers normally aren’t expected to work an eight-hour day for their food and lodging. Forstbauer said farmers should protect themselves by clarifying the terms of the wwoofing arrangement. “What I’d recommend to farmers who are taking wwoofers is that they set a value to how much the lodging is, this is how much the meals are worth and this is how much time you would be expected to work,” she said.

The issue is more complicated for wwoofers from other countries, but Canadian wwoofers are likely protected by provincial regulations, she added. “If you’re taking a wwoofer from somewhere else in Canada, you should make sure you have things pretty clear as to what the expectations are.” Employees in B.C. and Manitoba must file an employment standards complaint within six months of their last day of work, which means organic farmers don’t have to worry about a wwoofer filing a claim against them from previous years.

Thinking about trying something new this year?



rights to minimum wage.” With the mediation now complete and the issue behind her, Pereira has decided to share her story with other organic growers. As far as she knows, this is the first case of its kind in B.C, so talking openly about it wasn’t an easy decision. “If I don’t say anything, (fewer) apprentices are aware that they even have this option. The more public I make it, the more likely it could happen,” she said. “But if you don’t make it public, the farmers are at risk of not knowing.” Mary Forstbauer, president of the Certified Organic Associations of B.C., said she isn’t aware of Pereira’s case in detail, but it has been the topic of many emails within B.C.’s organic community. “For some reason the agriculture industry feels they don’t have to pay apprentices,” said Forstbauer, who farms near Chilliwack, B.C. “My son is working in a co-op program at university in a different field and he got paid well over minimum wage for his apprenticeship.” Organic and conventional farmers should be prepared to pay for the work that’s being done on their farm, she added. “Every other industry pays for apprentices and I don’t think farming should be any different.” Pereira said her case was the exception to the rule. Most interns and apprentices on organic farms are there to learn rather than earn a living. “I don’t want to come out really negative against the (intern) programs … (but) every farmer is at risk,” she said.

Study counters reports of seed treatment-bee link Ontario field study | Researchers unable to link insecticide exposure and bee colony health BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

A comprehensive field study conducted last summer near Guelph, Ont., found no link between insecticidal seed treatments and bee health. The findings are in contrast to European reports suggesting insecticides are destroying bee colonies across the globe, Researchers are still reviewing the Ontario data, but the evidence shows that canola treated with clothianidin, a Bayer neonicotinoid, is not a threat to bee colony health, said Cynthia Scott-Dupree, a professor in the University of Guelph’s School of Environmental Sciences. “From the data that I’ve seen, I’m not seeing any effect of exposure … to canola treated with clothianidin,” said Scott-Dupree, who led the field study with Chris Cutler of Dalhousie University. Bees exposed to the insecticide produced virtually the same amount of honey as a control group of bees, said Scott-Dupree. “A reduction in honey yield is an indication of overall poor colony health. If the pesticides are having an impact, the bees are not going to be foraging.” The study comes at a time when European Union countries are banning or considering restrictions on

Studies released last year in France demonstrated that bees exposed to thiamethoxam, a Syngenta product better known as Cruiser, were twice or three times as likely to die while foraging because they couldn’t find their way back to the hive. A Scottish study demonstrated that colonies exposed to imidacloprid, a

Bayer insecticide, produced 85 percent fewer queens than the control group. The studies, subsequent reports and newspaper headlines compelled European politicians to respond. The European Commission recommended that EU countries prohibit the use of the three neonicotinoids in seed treatments and crop application for two years beginning this spring.

Decisions, decisions Nitrogen applications should be based on your operation By Tom Barrie

Nitrogen is an important input for your crop. Do you put enough thought to your nitrogen management plan? Options abound for applications, sources and timing. With enhancedefficiency fertilizer products, more of these options may fit with your operation and contribute to your profitability. The two most common options are polymer-coated urea and urea treated with AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabilizer. There are several factors that you should consider when deciding between the two:

1) Is seed safety a concern? If you are applying your nitrogen directly in-furrow with the seed, a polymercoated nitrogen product is safer. The coating breaks down slowly, so nitrogen toxicity is less of a concern. If you are looking to speed up seeding and avoid the hassle of putting all your nitrogen down with the air drill, consider a pre-seed or top-dress broadcast application with protected nitrogen. 2) What are your soil types? Factors such as texture and organic matter can dictate how different nitrogen products will work in your fields. Choosing between broadcast urea and dribble-banded liquid nitrogen (UAN) will depend on soil conditions, too. AGROTAIN® stabilizer can be added to urea or UAN to reduce ammonia volatilization loss and make

those nitrogen sources effective options for surface applications. 3) What are the typical spring temperatures and moisture levels? You have enough to worry about at that time of year and don’t need to wonder whether or not your crop can access the applied nitrogen when it needs it. AGROTAIN® stabilizer doesn’t limit a plant’s ability to access nitrogen, regardless of soil temperature or moisture level. In cool, dry springs, urea treated with AGROTAIN® stabilizer is more plant available. Want help figuring out which approach is right for you? Ask the Nitrogen Miser.

Bayer funded Scott-Dupree’s canola study at a cost of $950,000 in an effort to produce field scale data on clothianidin and its impact on bee health. “That’s huge. That’s (for) a one year study,” she said. “Last year it was the largest bee project that (Bayer) had going globally.” Scott-Dupree and eight employees placed 40 bee colonies in 10 canola fields near Guelph last summer. Five canola fields had seed treated with clothianidin and five fields did not. The fields were 10 kilometres apart and five acres in size. The hives were placed in the middle of the canola fields at 25 percent canola bloom, and the bees foraged on the canola for two weeks. Following exposure, the 40 colonies were moved to a military site near Meaford, Ont., on a peninsula that extends into Lake Huron, to ensure the bees wouldn’t forage on crops treated with neonicotinoids for the remainder of the summer. Scott-Dupree measured three factors besides honey production: bee deaths, weight gain of colonies while foraging on canola, and insecticide residue on bees and in pollen, nectar, beeswax and honey. Scott-Dupree said she couldn’t share much information about insecticide residue because scientists at a U.S. Department of Agriculture lab are examining and analyzing samples taken during the study. “I’m not (aware) of all the residue data, but I do know that all our samples collected while bees were at the (military site) … were free of all neonicotinoid residues.”

The research team also spent $30,000 on photography equipment to document colony health throughout the experiment, taking 12,000 images during the trial. “We used digital photography to assess the amount of field brood and the number of adults on all frames in the colony,” she said. “There is software … that will actually determine the amount of field brood and amount of adults on all those frames.” The research team hasn’t yet analyze all the photos. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency, which oversaw and signed off on the field study protocols, requested the photography work. Scott-Dupree said she knows critics will say she’s in Bayer’s back pocket or focus on the study’s weaknesses when it is submitted for publication later this year, even though the EPA and PMRA verified the protocols and an independent quality assurance team supervised data collection and analysis. “I know that this research is done at a very high level,” she said. “I think when people read it, instead of accepting the results, they (will) look for the gaps and what the negatives are. ‘Well, you didn’t do this.’ ” The difficulty performing field studies on honeybees will be a potential criticism. “Unfortunately, the colony is so incredibly complex in regards as to how it interacts with chemicals in the natural system,” said Chris Mullin, an entomologist who studies pesticides and pollinator health at Penn State. “You can do all you want about trying to umbrella the beehive in a field situation, that they can’t forage beyond a certain point…. But that’s not how it works in real life…. The field studies are almost impossible.” However, Scott-Dupree said policy- makers and the media shouldn’t focus solely on laboratory studies of neonicotinoids and bees. “The importance of these field studies is substantial because a lot of the critical data indicating that neonics are killing the bees is based on laboratory studies,” she said. “The doses the bees are exposed to (in lab studies) are far above what a realistic field dose exposure would be…. What those studies prove is, yes, neonicotinoids are toxic to bees. Am I surprised? No. They are insecticides and bees are insects.”

STUDY DETAILS Nearly 30 scientists are participating in a $950,000 field study near Guelph, Ont., that began last year to evaluate how canola seed coated with the insecticide clothianidin affects bee colony health. • Researchers haven’t analyzed all the data, but early results indicate there is no impact on bee health at field level doses. • Hives comprising bees that foraged on canola grown with clothianidin treated seed produced 52.8 kilograms of honey, while the control group produced 51 kg. Average Ontario honey yield in 2012 was 37 kg. • There was no difference in colony weight gain between bees exposed to clothianidin and the control group. • Dead bee counts, done over four assessment dates during canola bloom, showed 140 dead bees in hives exposed to clothianidin and 133 dead bees in the control group.





Farmers discover CIGI opportunities Canadian International Grains Institute | The organization finds new path after the single desk

Clayton Friendly of Delia, Ala., jumped at the chance to attend a Canadian International Grains Institute course in Winnipeg in February. He had known about the institute for years, since his father attended a course. The opportunity also enticed Glen Lefley of Grosse Isle, Man., even though he had never heard of the organization based less than 20 kilometres from his farm. Both left the rejuvenated Combine to Customer course energized and pleasantly surprised by their upclose encounter with the throbbing heart of Canada’s grain trade. “I’ve had my eyes opened up. I didn’t know what this was about,” said Lefley, a grower of identity-preserved wheat who was offered the CIGI course by his customer, Paterson Grain. Friendly is a member of the Alberta Wheat Commission and took advantage of the course to bone up on the internal workings of the Canadian grain industry, something he thinks is vital in the post-CWB monopoly era. “They really expose you to the raw opinions of industry specialists,” said Friendly. “It’s such a transparent kind of an agency, as far as telling the core values of the way people look at agriculture.” Positive comments like these are music to the ears of CIGI executive director Earl Geddes, but more than just boosting the institute’s ego, the feedback seems like proof that the agency’s transformation from CWBbased to farmer and grain industrybased is working. “It’s worked exceedingly well,” Geddes said about the new course formation process, in which two committees tell CIGI what courses and training it thinks it should offer and then review the ideas that CIGI develops. CWB dominated CIGI programming during the monopoly era, but the courses are now broadening their focus and engaging a wider array of companies, organizations and farmers. Geddes said pulses and canola are getting a higher profile within the courses, even though a heavy pulse element had been developed at CIGI during the CWB-dominated era. The organization built a pulse milling and assessment section a few years ago, but now there’s even more interest from farmers on developing this capacity. “Within this building there’s a wealth of knowledge,” said Friendly, who calls peas the “shining gem” of his own farm, after seeing the pulse processing floor. Geddes said CIGI’s biggest problem has been underestimating how much interest there would be in its training abilities. It has had to delay a couple of open, public courses it was going to offer because it had so much demand from companies to do company-specific, private training. “We’re seeing a lot of that type of activity,” said Geddes. Many companies, from life science

to processors to merchants and marketers, can’t afford to build their own training facilities to this level, so they are turning to CIGI to do the work. Geddes said he has been pleased to see farmer interest stay high even without CWB’s backing and promotion, and hopes it has successfully managed the leap from one structure to another.

U.S. drought plays role in higher barley demand More acres needed | Grain broker says Alberta barley went south straight from the combine to drought areas in the United States STORIES BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

More barley is needed to meet the increased demand for livestock feed and malt now that grain is trading on the open market. “If you are a producer, it is not hard to sell your feed barley. There is a buyer any day of the week,” said Jim Beusekom, a grain broker with Marketplace Commodities Inc. in Lethbridge. “We need more acres of barley.” The barley crop is 60 percent of what it used to be at around seven

million acres. “If we are going to export barley at the rate we have this year, without more acres it is not sustainable to the industry right now,” he told the Western Barley Growers Association’s annual meeting in Calgary Feb. 14. He said barley was heading to the United States straight from the combine after the CWB monopoly ended last August. Some of those shipments were needed to fill grain shortfalls related to drought in the U.S., where crops were damaged across 70 percent of the country. Southern Alberta feedlots have

always been primary barley buyers, but in the open market they are stockpiling and securing more future deliveries. However, he said some of those decisions this past year were affected more by the U.S. drought than the ending of the single desk and increased export sales. He said the new sales environment saw barley exported directly from southern Alberta, which was unusual considering the region is the centre of Alberta’s feedlot industry. However, barley from central and northern Alberta was not exported to the same degree.

Beusekom said the barley was trucked to Montana and Idaho and loaded onto rail cars destined for California dairy farms, where feed specifications are similar to Alberta feedlots. The volumes were not large, but companies went after the best prices at the time. Most barley is staying home now because prices are stronger in the local market. On the malt side, Beusekom said companies secured their supplies early on but Saskatchewan grain was shipped to North Dakota and Alberta malt went to Montana rather than

sold offshore. He said there is American demand for Canadian wheat, but producers need to know their quality. Wheat grading is subject to the U.S. grading system. There are no issues in crossing the border, but freight rates could be higher. Most U.S. facilities are on the Burlington Northern Railroad, but some are set up to switch over to Canadian Pacific Railway. Fuel surcharges are higher and there are differences in protein discounts, premiums and dockage charges. Price discovery is not much different, but producers need to get a handle on basis, which indicates the differences in grade, arbitrage and the time period it is shipped. He said producers need to understand the seasonality of trading wheat and become educated. Plenty of market news is available, he added, but it is hard to sort through because of the amount of material and confliction information.

The increase in barley exports last year illustrates the success that ending the CWB monopoly has brought, said federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz. Barley exports improved by 35 percent last year with expectations for continued growth, he said, attributing that success to the end of the monopoly. “The doom and gloom scenario painted by those who fundamentally and ideologically opposed marketing freedom has not materialized,” he told the Western Barley Growers Association’s annual meeting Feb. 14 in Calgary. “There will be glitches. That is the nature of agriculture.” CWB chief executive officer Ian White agreed the transition has been seamless, even though there was apprehension among CWB staff as to how the new system would work. “The transition has been a pretty exhausting process because we have been trying to change the organization that did the same thing for 75 years,” he said. White told growers that CWB’s continued focus is to place farmers first. “Probably the CWB is the opportunity for farmers to participate in a grain company,” he said. CWB is working on a plan to privatize and must decide who will be shareholders, determine capital needs and expand the business. White said he is not sure how farmers might participate in the ownership of CWB. It needs large amounts of capital, larger than most farmers can contribute, so other outside investment will be necessary. White said CWB has 45 canola locations and 240 delivery points for wheat, durum and barley in Western Canada. It also remains part of the producer car loading environment.



Premium sought to satisfy thirst for malting barley BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

World demand for malting barley is growing, but farmers need a premium to make it worth their while. “The price of malting barley has to be at a level where farmers say it is worth growing,” said Tim Stonehouse, group malt sales director for Muntons Malt in the United Kingdom. Muntons is one the top five maltsters in the U.K. Stonehouse’s company pays a premium of about $40 Cdn per tonne over the feed market, which British farmers have responded to by growing more. He told the Western Barley Growers Association’s annual meeting in Calgary Feb. 14 that companies will have to work more closely with farmers to ensure supply through contracts and premiums. The U.K. produces 1.6 million tonnes of malt for beer and whiskey production, which requires two million tonnes of barley. He doesn’t believe England and Scotland can grow more. The world’s cereal grain stocks are at critically low levels, and malt production is also falling behind. Stonehouse estimated a growing world population and increased beer consumption means an extra 500,000 tonnes of malt will be needed every year. Global beer production required 20 million tonnes of malt in 2010, which was derived from 25.6 million tonnes of barley. Stonehouse predicts the world will need 30.9 million tonnes of barley by 2020 to meet world demand. North America produces 33.3 billion litres of beer. Canada has a surplus and the United States is in balance. Australia makes 2.3 billion litres and has a malt surplus. China produces 45.5 billion litres and has a surplus of malt. Europe makes 54.2 billion litres and is also in surplus. Asia makes 14.2 billion litres of beer but does not grow barley. Africa makes 10.2 billion litres and needs to import malt. However, enzymes and other cereals are often used to make beer without malt barley. They are likely to want better beer as their economies improve and will need malt. South America produces 22.3 billion litres and is in deficit. Growth in beer consumption has been strongest in China, Brazil, Mexico, Vietnam and Thailand. A breakdown of per capita consumption shows Canadians consume 70 litres each but Bavarians drink 300 litres and Czechs drink 160 litres per year. Stonehouse said beer made without malt should be labelled differently so consumers know what it is. Brewing recipes have never established a definition of beer, unlike the whisky and cheese industries. Many large companies do not pro-


test because they believe consumers will switch once they can afford beer with malt. “If more people in Africa have access to a product or a beer type, that is not a bad thing because that develops a beer culture, but I want people to know there is a difference,” he said.

2,279 FARMERS COMPLETE VITERRA SURVEY, 87% WOULD REPURCHASE VT 500 G IN 2013 Customers surveyed included those who purchased Viterra canola varieties in 2012, along with past Viterra canola seed customers. The survey gathered feedback on customers’ experience with a range of canola varieties including Viterra, DuPont® Pioneer®, DEKALB®, InVigor® and Nexera™. Top survey scores went to Viterra’s VT 500 G. Growers indicated that this canola seed had stronger lodging resistance and greater swathing satisfaction, meaning that they enjoy more acres harvested per day compared to competing canola seed brands. STANDABILITY RATING

VT 500 G

“Growers can’t predict the weather during the growing season, so it’s important to select multiple high performing hybrids,” says Lyle Cowell, Manager Agronomic Services. “This will increase the likelihood of attaining the highest returns. It’s critical that growers select the right hybrids for their farm based on agronomic factors such as lodging, maturity, days to flower and per cent wins. Viterra’s VT 500 G meets these needs.”

“Growers can’t predict the weather during the growing season, so it’s important to select multiple high performing hybrids,” Farmers have recognized the importance of top yielding genetics, combined with standability. Finding efficiencies, especially at harvest, is important to profitability. 87% of farmers surveyed would make VT 500 G a part of their seeding plan in 2013.





“Based on a 30 ft. swather, farmers can swath an extra 2.5 acres per hour with VT 500 G,” says Dr. Andrahennadi, Senior Canola Hybrid Breeder. “This variety offers big yield, solid agronomics and superior standability, allowing our growers to maximize fertility without the risks of a lodged crop.” In addition, VT 500 G received a good/ excellent lodging rate of 94 per cent, showing that growers rely on the product’s World Class Standability.

As Canada and the European Union struggle to seal a trade liberalizing deal more than three years in the making, the EU and the United States plan their own trade talks. Trade officials from the two jurisdictions announced Feb. 14 they have agreed to organize and begin talks for a TransAtlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. Canadian trade specialists say the prospect of an EU-U.S. deal is both an incentive to finish the Canadian talks and a danger if the Europeans decide greater access to the American market is a better option. “I really think this is an impetus to get the CETA (Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement) done,” Toronto trade lawyer Lawrence Herman said. “Let’s not get too excited about U.S.–EU talks because they will take some time to start and much longer to finish, but it does give us a push.” Ottawa trade consultant and former trade negotiator Peter Clark said many sensitive issues remain to be resolved between Brussels and Ottawa, including key agricultural questions about beef and pork access to Europe demanded by Canada and dairy product access to Canada demanded by the EU. “I think there is a package of issues still to be decided with agriculture among them,” he said. European and Canadian ministers met in Ottawa in early February to discuss potential political compromises on sensitive issues, but no deals were struck. The Canadian government continues to insist that it will not sign a deal with Europe that does not protect Canadian agricultural interests. The Canada-EU CETA talks were supposed to finish last year at the latest, but more talks are planned as solutions to the remaining sensitive issues remain elusive. Both trade specialists said time is running down on getting a CETA deal because inertia could set in, tough issues must be dealt with and European trade attention could wander elsewhere. “If they don’t get this deal done by the last part of the second quarter, I think it is in trouble,” said Clark. Herman offered a shorter time frame. “If they don’t announce an agreement in principle by the end of the first quarter (March 31), I think the deal will be in some trouble,” he said. Even if a deal-in-principle is announced, details will have to be worked out and it will have to be approved by each of the 27 EU countries as well as in Ottawa and provincial-territorial capitals in a process that could take years.

How do you convince consumers to buy local? Sustainable food | Organic certification levels vary and offer few guarantees, while higher prices can turn consumers away from buying local

Consumers are lazy. Organic claims are confusing. The definition of “local” varies. Food sustainability is within our grasp. These themes and many others permeated a wide-ranging discussion Feb. 12 about supporting sustainable food. Food activist Jill Cairns of Calgary, tomato producer Tony Legault of Nanton, Alta., and beef producer Wade Nelson of High River, Alta., acted as panelists while moderator Lorne Fitch of the Cows and Fish program struggled to focus discussion. But among all the emerging themes, panelists agreed on at least one thing: consumers should better inform themselves about their food sources. “I would like people to think about why they’re doing what they’re doing and where they’re actually getting their information from,” said Cairns. “Consumers have dropped the ball. They’re lazy.” Cairns, a freelance farm activist, said many people are uninformed about the sources of their food and the way it is produced, moved and marketed. Most people have never had to go without food and take its availability and safety for granted. She said that will eventually lead to crisis, and the signs are already there in the form of higher poverty levels, diseases related to poor nutrition, rising obesity rates and lack of resources and money to fix those problems. Consumers often use time constraints as an excuse for relying on fast food and failing to better inform themselves about nutrition, food and local sources. Cairns doesn’t buy that argument. “Look again, because everybody’s got 24 hours in a day and everybody’s got, say, 72 years. I know you’re busy. Maybe some of those things (keeping

you busy) aren’t as important as you think they are or maybe some of your motivation is more ego based than survival based.” She said consumers should start by talking to produce managers at grocery stores and stating their preference for local food. Legault operates Paradise Hill Farm, a greenhouse operation that supplies tomatoes to Calgary Co-op stores. He said informing consumers about how he produces his crop is part of his philosophy. Then it’s up to consumers to decide if they want to buy it. “All you have to do is make sure that you tell the people that you’re marketing to, what you’re doing. And if there’s a way to back that up, that’s all that’s needed. The people will buy your product if they want.” Legault said he was once approached to supply Costco with tomatoes, but his operation did not fit the retail giant’s idea of “local,” which sells Ontario tomatoes in Mexican Costco stores and Mexican tomatoes in the Lethbridge outlet. “Local” can be defined in many ways when it comes to food, he added. Is it food from your neighbour, your county, your country or some other place? He too encouraged consumers to find local sources of food, learn more about them and patronize them if it suits their needs. “We’ve always produced local food,” he said. “Local food has always been here. There has always been a farm just outside of Lethbridge. There’s always been a farm just outside of Nanton. Whether or not you bought from there is what’s now making what you call local food.” Nelson, who markets Highwood Valley Ranch Beef, said lack of volume is a major impediment for many local food producers. He has a small herd of cattle from which he markets dry-aged, antibiotic-free beef direct-

ly to consumers. The operation has been asked to supply beef to Calgary restaurants, but they only want strip loins, tenderloins and prime rib. “There’s not a cow in the world that has all three of those,” said Nelson. Another potential customer asked for 10 tenderloins a week, which would equate to slaughtering five animals a week. “I said, ‘sure, I’d love to do that, as long as you buy 100 pounds of ground beef a week.’ ” It would be possible to supply some of those demands if a group of producers with similar production practices and philosophies could pool their product, he added. However, they would face another problem: lack of mid-sized slaughter facilities. Nelson said there are no middle range meat processors in southern Alberta that can handle more than 25 to 50 head a day and fewer than 4,000. He said many consumers patronize fast food outlets because it’s cheap and convenient. Local food isn’t a priority. “We want consistently crappy food,” he said, explaining people want entrees to taste the same regardless of franchise location. Panelists agreed that the range of organic groups and the levels of certification, which vary by province, are confusing for consumers and can offer few guarantees. Legault and Nelson don’t market their produce as organic, but they do explain their production methods to those who buy it. As for the sustainability of local food, the panelists agreed it exists but consumers have to become willing to pay more for it. “People have gotten convinced in the last 50 years that food should be cheaper than it actually is,” said Cairns. “People just want cheap food and they don’t want to think too much beyond that.”

FRIEDENSFELD, Man. — Gwen Oswald knows from experience that not every farmer starts out with the dream of living off the land. “I said I’d never marry a farmer because I hated them,” she said. Gwen did just that in 1968, but she kept her job at the Royal Bank, determined not to be involved in the day to day work of farming. A year later, when it became clear it would take more than one person to keep the farm viable, she quit her bank job and went to work full time on the farm. “And here I am, 45 years later, and still farming,” she said. The 240 acre farm near Zhoda, Man., which Gwen and her husband, Edwood, bought from his parents was home to more than just dairy cows. There were also pigs, chickens, ducks, geese, a beef herd and bees as well. The pigs were the first to go because they didn’t like them. The chickens, ducks and geese were picked up by members of her extended family. The beef cows were sold off and then the bees because Edwood is allergic. “That left us with just 15 milking cows and few dry ones,” Gwen said. The milking parlour was a five stall barn, and the Oswalds used a MacLeod’s milker and hauled the milk by hand to milk cans. By 1972, the couple had acquired a milk tank and installed a pipeline to move the milk to the tank. Then they built their free stall milking barn in 1974, followed by the installation of a six by 24 metre Harvester silo in 1976. The Oswalds were forced to rebuild the loft and replace the roof of the new barn in 1977 following a fire. The same year, the Oswald family welcomed their second son Mark, who is now the veterinarian for Cottonwood Holsteins. Older son Jason was born in 1971. Brent arrived Oct. 24, 1982, and he still likes to tell people that’s the day Cottonwood Holsteins was born, although the farm wasn’t incorporated until 1983. As the family grew, so did the farm. Gwen said the size of the dairy herd increased by about 20 head every time she had another child. She said expanding a dairy farm in the 1970s and 1980s was a challenge. Farmers who bought additional milking quota also had to buy the seller’s land, buildings and animals. The quota wasn’t even listed as an asset, she added. Interest rates pushing 20 percent


during the mid to late 1980s made it difficult for the young couple to acquire a loan for expansion, but they pushed ahead and bought the farm. Gwen said that purchase was the last time anyone had to buy land and assets to acquire additional quota before the supply managed dairy industry in Manitoba became a true quota system. Gwen and Edwood kept pace with the changes in dairy farming, introducing a computerized milking and feeding system into their dairy barn before they built a new home in 1989. Gwen said being a woman in a man’s world hasn’t been easy. However, she ran a successful milking operation while Edwood took care of the calving, feeding and outdoor work. Phrases such as herd health and cow comfort weren’t part of a dairy producers’ vocabulary when Gwen and Edwood began farming, but they would become entrenched in farm culture by the time Brent took over Cottonwood. Gwen and Edwood took the first step toward retirement in 2008, building a second house in another location. Brent and his wife, Kirsty, moved into the farmhouse when the succession planning was completed that year. The succession took three years to complete, but Gwen said she has no regrets about the amount of time and money the family spent “getting it right.” Since then, Gwen has retained the position of “Minister of Finance” for Cottonwood Holsteins, and, in her words, is “still dealing with Edwood” when she’s not busy being a full-time grandma to her seven grandchildren, who range in age from two to 11. By 2012, Cottonwood Holsteins had expanded to 2,000 acres. All of the silage for the dairy operation is grown on the farm, and 126 cows go through the robotic milkers every day. Gwen and Edwood still have input into some of the larger decisions on CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

the farm, but Brent said the small daily stuff is all on his shoulders. That meant he had to figure out how he would manage the farm single handedly. He saw three options: downsize, hire more help or decrease the daily workload through automation. Brent chose automation. “The new robot barn was built in 2009 and we automated everything as much as possible, regardless of how the math worked out, if it made us money or not,” he said. He also hired a full-time farm hand. Kirsty, who’s a full-time mom to Taylor, 4, and Brenden, 2, doesn’t work on the farm. Brent said he believes the monetary risk is higher on modern farms than it was in the early 1970s because of the rising costs of feed, fertilizer, medicine and repairs. “Hard work doesn’t necessarily mean a paycheque anymore.” The definition of hard work has also changed. “Hard work used to be outside hard labour, now it’s inside, in front of the computer figuring things out .... That might be the most important job of the day,” Brent said. “The ability to make mistakes and overcome them is diminishing as the profit margin shrinks.” He said he’s also concerned that fewer people are becoming involved in the businesses that support agriculture and farmers. Farmers will need more support, not less, as farming becomes more technical, especially the equipment, he added. Shrinkage isn’t confined to profit margins and support systems. Brent said the general public’s awareness of what a farmer does is also diminishing as more people move to the city. It’s one of the reasons why he spends time thinking about how other people perceive his job and what their expectations are about animal care. He has adopted a proactive approach to dealing with this phenomenon by making sure the new barn is built for cow comfort. It’s the little things that count, he added, such as turning off the fans in the barn when the automated feed belts start delivering the feed so it doesn’t blow into the cow’s faces. “Otherwise it’d be like eating at the Keg and getting a steak in the face,” he said. For just $67, the electrician installed a switch to turn off the air while the cows are eating so they can enjoy their meal. The finer details were left to Brent when the Oswalds decided to build the milking robots into the barn, but he said he got some good advice from his father, who helped him manage the challenge. He said Edwood told him: “You’re only going to build one barn in your lifetime so you better build it once and do it right and don’t you dare come back in five years and say we have to renovate .... Spend it now and we’ll swallow it and get past it, but just do it once.” The new barn also has two voluntary milking system robots. Brent

named one Gwen and the other Edwood so that he can say that, yes, indeed, Gwen and Ed are working on the farm. Every inch of the floor in the new barn is rubber to reduce stress on cows’ feet and legs, and it’s cross ventilated. It even has pot lights in the front overhang — just because it was possible and because it looked good, Brent said. Prices, farm equipment and lifestyle may have changed, but Brent said there’s a rule he learned from his father that he uses to guide his decisions about expansion: make sure the farm can be run by one person in case of a crisis, at least for a short time. He said he’s also learning something that can be a hard lesson for many farmers: “Sit back and decide what you can do well, concentrate on that and hire folks to do the other work.”


The automatic feeder takes the alfalfa feed from the silo to the cows in the barn 10 times a day. This allows the cows to feed at a more leisurely pace and gives lame, older, or timid cows better access to feed because they aren’t being jostled by the more aggressive animals. | ANNE COTE PHOTOS

Farm founder cared more about horses than wheat British immigrants | Family kept a stake in farm at Imperial, Sask. BY KAREN MORRISON SASKATOON NEWSROOM

IMPERIAL, Sask. — Thomas Burgess didn’t care much for growing crops, but he loved animals. The hunting dog and horse trainer from Marsh Gibhan, Buckinghamshire, England, came to Canada in 1910 to create a farm and home for a growing family that included his wife, Sarah, and children, Jim and Annie May. The family would grow to include William and Rose. Thomas once cared for as many as 170 horses while working in London, but he realized they would soon be replaced by motor vehicles. Instead, he turned his thoughts to a new life in Canada. The family came on a settlers’ train to Bladworth, Sask., with the Alf Steer family, who had a relative there. The friends found work in the area before making claims on good farmland at nearby Imperial. The two families built one shack on the dividing land between their land, a condition of acquiring a quarter section for $10, and broke 10 acres the first year with Steer’s oxen team. More than a century later, Thomas’s grandson, Bill Burgess, still owns that homestead. “They got a quarter for $10 and thought that was really something,” he said. Bill said Thomas walked the 35 kilometres to the homestead from Bladworth to visit his family until he acquired a cream-coloured buckskin driving pony with a brown strip down its back. An entry in the local history book by Thomas’s son, William, indicates the pioneer’s approach to agriculture: “Dad didn’t do his own farming, he worked for other neighbours and got his done custom wise. He later rented … until Jim was old enough to farm.” Thomas owned the farm until his death in 1943 and then Jim operated it until 1974. Ill health had forced Jim

off the farm in 1936. The land was crop shared until Jim’s death in 1999, when it was acquired by Bill and his wife, Kay, who carried on crop sharing. History is important to the couple, with a scaled down version of the Rouse School in the backyard of their home in Imperial — Kay once taught there — and a Model A car in the garage. Bill also has nine John Deere tractors, four of which are restored. The couple maintains a modest house and barn on the homestead farm, where they make regular treks in the warmer months.

Bill quit school in Grade 7 to help run the original Burgess farm, one of the last to use horses in the district. He recalled the night he lost his way home on a borrowed horse, toting an 11 kilogram turkey purchased for supper. “I got lost and rode all night long. I rode in circles all night,” Bill said. Another night, his experience was better while trying to get home riding one of his own horses. “It was so dark, I couldn’t see the horse’s ears,” he said. “The horse jerked the reins out of my hand and turned around and it took me home.”

Kay and Bill’s foray into hands-on farming ended abruptly when an outbreak of brucellosis forced them to sell the dairy herd and move into town in 1960. Like Thomas, Bill also enjoyed tending animals more than crops. “I didn’t like going round and round in the field,” he said. Bill turned to a longtime career as a cabinetmaker and carpenter in nearby Davidson. “We couldn’t make a living with the land we had. We couldn’t sit out there all winter,” he said.

Added Kay: “The kids had four and a half miles to go to school (from the farm) so we came to town and this is where we stayed. Their family grew to include three sons and three daughters. Today, with nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, the couple is hopeful about the future of the Burgess farm, a recipient of Saskatchewan’s Century Family Farm Award. Echoing the sentiments of his English grandfather, Bill said, “There’s nothing like owning your own land.”

Some legal fees are fixed; others based on time spent A PRAIRIE PRACTICE



awyers provide advice and representation as a professional service. This also means that they owe a professional duty to clients and can be held liable if they make mistakes. This obligation to their clients means that every time they provide advice or take instructions, they are opening themselves up to risk. Since lawyers often deal with large sums of money, they are required by law to purchase practice insurance to cover them in the event of a mistake. Most of the work done by law offices is billed at an hourly rate that varies by lawyer and level of experience or expertise, measured in six-minute increments. Many law offices charge for an initial consultation. Some items, such as simple wills, are billed at a fixed rate. Others, such as the sale of real estate or the managing of an estate, are billed based on the value of the assets involved. Estate fees in Saskatchewan are fixed by the Queen’s Bench Rules of Court. All lawyers must charge the same fee for the core services of administering an estate and securing letters probate. The Law Society of Saskatchewan provides a suggested tariff of fees for lawyers working in real estate. If something goes wrong in the transaction, it is the lawyer who is often held liable. The suggested tariff provides a guideline for fair compensation for the amount of work and risk involved for the lawyer. The risk in a race to the bottom for real estate fees lies in lawyers cutting corners or relying on assistants to justify the low bill. This can lead to mistakes, which cost both the lawyer and the client in the long run. Whenever you speak with lawyers about a matter, they are under an obligation to take notes to add to your file along with any instructions you may have. Many lawyers handle hundreds of files a year. They will remember you and your case, but perhaps not the specifics of your faulty window. To fulfil their professional obligations to you, they will likely need to pull your file and review it before giving any advice over the phone. Do not feel discouraged from contacting your lawyer about issues you may have, but understand that even responding to a quick email may take a quarter of an hour or longer, and you will be billed accordingly. For lawyers, and many other professionals, time is money. This is how they make their living. Finally, do not call a law office with a new problem and expect to receive free legal advice over the phone. Any advice lawyers provide opens them up to liability. They have a duty to investigate and can be taken to court if they provide quick advice that turns out to be wrong.

If it is important, make an appointment. You might even discover that facts you did not think were relevant turn out to be important. Getting the whole picture takes time and is a big part of any lawyer’s job and a professional responsibility.

Hot or cold, spicy or tangy — salads can be more than lettuce pinch of chives, chopped chopped fresh basil to taste sea salt to taste




egetables and fruits are the basis of a good weight loss program. To lose weight, you need to reduce your fat and carbohydrate intake so your body will use stored fat for energy. Trying some different combinations of vegetables may be the boost you need to get back on track with your new year’s resolution to eat better. When combining vegetables for salads, consider ways to vary texture, colour, flavour and temperature. Use crisp and soft vegetables to vary textures. Cut vegetables into bitesized chunks or chop the salad into pea-sized pieces. Use a knife and chop into thin strips instead of tearing lettuce leaves. Add colour to salads by using different shades of lettuce, cabbage and peppers or include tomatoes or radishes. Add berries, oranges or peaches to add flavour, colour and texture.

Coarsely chop vegetables and place in a large bowl. In a small dish, combine the oil, horseradish, mustard and vinegar. Add the chives, basil and salt to the dressing and mix well. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and mix. Cover and let marinate for an hour or longer. This salad will keep in the refrigerator for several days. To make a meal, add chopped hard boiled eggs, chicken, tuna or lean roast pork or beef to the salad in individual serving bowls just before serving. Adapted from Adding flavour Dressings, herbs and spices can be used to change the flavour of salads. A dressing can be as simple as adding sauerkraut to give a tangy flavour. Add chopped dill pickles to the salad or mix dill pickle juice with oil, use one tablespoon (15 mL) of each. For a citrus flavoured dressing, mix one tablespoon (15 mL) grapefruit, orange, lemon or lime juice with two tablespoons (30 mL) of oil. Combine apple cider vinegar and oil, using one tablespoon (15 mL) of each. Use hoisin sauce or soy sauce as a dressing.

Garden catalogues warm up winter Countdown to spring | Eager to get growing BY CATHERINE RUMANCIK SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Dizzy and Starfighter lilies are prolific bloomers. |

An angry wind slams snowflakes against the sunroom window. The thermometer reads -38 C. Snow threatens to devour the peak of a garden trellis, and a trio of metal daisies appear to shiver with every gust. It’s the perfect day to snuggle up with a stack of garden catalogues and a bowl of soup laced with Ring of Fire peppers, Cobra tomatoes, Hercules onions and Atomic red carrots. Seed catalogues start filling the mailbox even before New Year’s resolutions have been broken. Every company has something new and improved, or just different, to seduce newbies and make green thumbs drool. But forget red tomatoes, orange carrots and green cucumbers. That’s so Grandma’s garden. Think Yellow Pear tomatoes, White Satin carrots and Lemon Apple cucumbers. Corn comes in “every colour known to corn” on ears of Painted Mountain. And goodbye boring yellow beans, hello red dappled Borlotto Lingua di Fuoco, which beg to be served with a glass of Merlot. Cucumbers are round, tomatoes

Orbit, a lime green cauliflower that looks like delicate ocean coral, could serve as an accent piece on the coffee table while Peppermint swiss chard would look attractive in a flower arrangement.

If Park Seed company has its way, chocolate cravings will give way to Nectar cherry tomatoes, a “powerhouse of fabulous ultra sweet flavour with over-the-top yields.” Plant breeders not only like to tinker with normal shapes, they also like to flirt with unusual colours. But while burgundy is a favourite in flowers, clothing and pillows, slapping burgundy on brussels sprouts isn’t going to change a thing. And then there are vegetables that should not be messed with. Whoever heard of a face turning beet yellow? And it’s hard not to be feel embarrassed for white asparagus poking out of the ground. With a leaning toward lilies over leeks, it’s time to head to the middle of the catalogues where the flower section begins. There is a Chinese proverb that says, “if you have two loaves of bread, sell one and buy a lily.” Profound. But better yet, sell both loaves, hit the garden centre in July after the flowers have finished blooming and are marked half price and buy four. That’s what happened last year: only four loaves of bread were sold — twice. But the Serene Angel, Sweet Rosy and Magic Star double oriental lilies were replacement plants for coral bells that rotted. And the Asiatic Purple Eye, oriental Cobra and Rodolfa were needed to shade a clematis. (Gardeners’ rule: required plants do not count in the gardening budget.) Google “new lilies” on the internet and you will learn about the discovery of an arum lily in Australia. The plant gives off an unusual odour similar to “burnt-out electrics” to attract the rove beetle. Such lilies aren’t unusual, apparently. Some lilies smell like rotting meat to attract the dung beetle. The bright side of -40 C? No dung beetles. Veseys, based in York, P.E.I., offers the Lionhart lily that looks like a black spider that tiptoed through yellow paint. The fact that there is no pollen to stain clothes or noses is a definite bonus. They would look stupendous next to Lollipop lilies a n d Ja m a i c a n M e C r a z y f r o m Botanus. Echinacea, commonly called coneflower, is another favourite, simply because it blooms and blooms, unlike day lilies, a baffling invention. Not being a fan of anything yellow, the unusual Passion Flute coneflower with little spoons at the end of each petal gets a pass. But wait. Another catalogue offers those same spoons in cream on Ferris Wheel and in pink on All That Jazz. And it’s cheaper if you order three. Coneflowers come in all shades of pink and purple, orange and red. Some have wispy petals, others are daisy-like. Some wear a pompom on top. Cranberry Cupcakes and Hot Papayas would go well with a few creamy Milkshakes. Hostas are a favourite for shady areas of the garden. You might think there is only so much a breeder can do with a leaf, but like toothbrush inventors, they keep dreaming up new ways to deliver more sparkle. Whether fat or skinny, sleek or cur vy, leaves can be dappled, striped, splashed, veined, streaked, dappled, variegated, corrugated or puckered. Yet no matter how creative breeders get with lime, chartreuse, cream, forest, moss, sage and celery, it does not make red. Note to breeders: grab a normal tomato, suck out some red genes and give gardeners

some colour already. The fun part of being a breeder would be getting to name your creation. A hosta with elongated leaves twist and turn and look rather haggard on Electrocution, but undulate like a roller coaster on Wheee! And while Goodness Gracious hosta fails to excite, Seducer is enticing. And starting out life light green but promising to turn yellow in the sunshine is an appropriate name for Banana Muffins. The names of plants have been shown to influence consumers. A study by Cornell University found that kids ate more carrots in the school cafeteria when they were called X-Ray Vision and more broccoli when it was called Power Punch instead of vegetable of the day. This may explain flowers called Secret Passion, Lust and Romance. Poppies are on the boycott list until someone figures out how to tame local gale force winds. It is too depressing to watch downturned heads only hours from blooming turn into naked stems by late afternoon. However, the densely packed Black Cloud peony poppies look mighty determined. Lauren’s Grape, Coral Reef and Patty’s Plum poppies have all adorned the garden in past years, but not one made a repeat appearance the following spring. However, they have been replaced by an unknown pink variety with petals that look like shredded paper. They bounce back after being smacked by sideways rain and wind, looking only slightly worse for wear. Peering through the frosted window, it’s hard to resist adding a few Garden Party lilies and Mercury Rising coreopsis to the list. They say patience is a virtue. For anyone else lacking this virtue, checking germination times on seed packets will save money and frustration. For instance, some begonias or passion flowers can take up to 10 months to germinate. Hello? Three hundred days? That’s 40 weeks of pampering until a seedling makes its debut. Then there is after-sprouting pampering. You might as well start a family. With an order an arm’s length long, it’s time to call it quits. The driveway needs to be shovelled. But the anticipation of Thai Dragon peppers and Wildfire arugula will warm innards.







Music and art on the menu in rural Sask. Town rectory, community hall renovated | Creativity comes to life BY CHRISTALEE FROESE FREELANCE WRITER

Shannon and Don Shakotko renovated the Happy Nun Cafe in Forget, Sask. |


FORGET, Sask. — It looks like a ghost town, with no grocery store, school, bank or even post office. But, there’s something in the trees next to the towering church steeple. The fading yellow surface of the large brick building tries to camouflage what lies beyond, but its bright red door gives the first small clue that something unforgettable has come to Forget. Forget caught the attention of Don and Shannon Shakotko more than 12 years ago. Searching for a reason to stay in Saskatchewan after falling in love with nearby Maryfield, where Don was principal of the school, the couple saw a photo of the Forget rectory on the cover of a newspaper. “How cool is that to have a name like Forget?’” said Shakotko, who once mispronounced “for-jay” like the word, forget. “That Sunday, we jumped in the car and went for a drive and sure enough, there was the town and the rectory. And lo and behold, there was this homemade for sale sign on the rectory,” she said. With the plaster falling from its walls and the support beams threatening to give out, the Shakotko couple knew it was a make-work project. Shannon, who holds two masters degrees, and Don, who has a doctorate in education, bought the Forget rectory and decided to turn it into the Ananda Arthouse, where musicians and artists could come to feed their creativity. “As we were renovating the rectory and knocking out walls, I remember taping out a stage and sitting and

thinking, ‘OK, how many people could we fit in this space?’” The number was about 50 and after packing the rectory living room year upon year with musicians from across Canada and the United States, it was time for to expand. With the Forget community hall going up for tender in 2008, the couple’s prayers were answered. They would host their 100th Forget concert in the new Happy Nun Cafe, rather than in their living room as they had done since 2000. The rectory is now the Shakotko home, a retreat for artists and the Inn of the Seven Sisters. However, the stage has moved to the Forget hall where the Happy Nun Cafe and music venue hosts performers several times each month. Gourmet meals are served, along with homemade offerings provided by Shakotko’s mom, Gyda Nickel. Her parents moved to Forget along with 20 family members and friends, following the dream created by the two self-described spiritual, musicloving dreamers. One musician, Juno-award winning blues and roots performer Ken Hamm, came from the West Coast for a concert in Forget in 2005. Hamm and his wife were so enamoured with the peaceful prairie setting that they bought a home for $8,000, set up a music shop and now travel from Forget to perform throughout the world. “This place has shaped us,” said Shakotko. “We have shaped it by rejuvenating it and breathing life into it again, but it has done the same for us.” For more information, visit www. and www.

USDA predicts end to agricultural boom Good times wind down | A drop in land and commodity prices this fall may slow equipment and input purchases WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — The seven-year-old U.S. agricultural boom is expected to peak this year and then come to an abrupt end as high costs start to bite, the U.S. government recently projected. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said farm income would soar to a record $127.6 billion this year, up 15 percent, thanks to high market prices and crop insurance payments that will offset losses from the worst drought in more than half a century. However, it expects farm income to fall by one-third next year to $96.9 billion because corn, wheat and soybeans will fetch dramatically lower prices as a result of bumper crops forecasted this fall. The abrupt contraction in farm income could prompt farmers to slow purchases of equipment, grain

bins and crop land. Land prices have risen along with grain prices since 2006. High production costs, up 12 percent in two years, will compound the effect of lower earnings for crop farmers, but lower prices for grain and oilseeds will be a welcome relief for livestock producers who have complained of ruinously high feed prices. “While income declines from the 2013 record through 2015, it remains well above the average of the previous decade,” the USDA said. The projections were based on conditions at the end of 2012. U.S. farm exports are projected at a record $145 billion this fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30, up $10 billion from the previous year. The USDA said the record “largely reflects high commodity prices.”

The department expects agricultural exports to drop by $3 billion in fiscal 2014 and by an additional $5 billion in fiscal 2015. Expectations high Farmers are expected to harvest a record 14.4 billion bushels of corn this year, assuming yields return to normal, which is up 34 percent from last year. They are expected to grow the second-largest soybean crop on record at 3.335 billion bu. and a mediumsized wheat crop of 2.19 billion bu. The department said market prices would plunge this fall as a result. It projected corn would sell for an average $5.40 a bu. at the farmgate, down nearly $2 from the record-high season-average price forecast for this year.

Soybean prices would be nearly $3 below the record $14.30 a bu. expected this year. Wheat would be down by 70 cents from the record $7.90 a bu. forecast for this year. “Nonetheless, U.S. prices for corn, wheat and soybeans are projected to remain historically high, above pre2007 levels,” the department said. Growers were projected to plant 254 million acres of the eight major U.S. crops this year: wheat, rice, corn, sorghum, barley, oats, soybeans and upland cotton. It would be second only to the record set last year. Persistent drought in the U.S. Plains and western corn belt have resulted in concern about likely yields. The winter wheat crop, grown mostly in the Plains, is most at risk from drought. The USDA projected lower yields for wheat and a smaller crop than last

year, despite a larger wheat area. The department’s projected corn yield was higher than other forecasts, which it said was calculated by looking at 25 years of crops, including the 1988 and 2012 droughts. Dan O’Brien, a Kansas State University economist, used 157.4 bu. an acre as the likely yield in a forecast last month, while David Anderson, an agricultural economist at Texas A&M, has used 150 bu. an acre as a reasonable yield that would produce a record crop. Many analysts believe growers will plant 97 to 99 million acres of corn, compared to the 96 million acres projected by USDA. U.S. corn and soybean production has fallen for three years in a row. Traders have focused on bare-bones corn supplies and the need to rebuild stockpiles.


Welcome snow cover a ‘drop in the bucket’ Not a drought-buster | More needed to replenish soil KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Reuters) — A heavy winter snowstorm that recently swept across the U.S. Midwest was welcomed by winter wheat farmers worried that their drought-stricken fields were too parched to produce a healthy crop this year. Almost half a metre of snow fell across key growing areas in Oklahoma and Kansas last week. “I feel a lot better this morning,” said Kansas wheat farmer Scott Van Allen, who has 2,300 acres planted to winter wheat. “It snowed all night on us. I was getting very concerned with the lack of moisture we’ve had.” “Most of the snow has been in Kansas and into Missouri so far,” Brian Fuchs, a climatologist with the University of Nebraska Drought Mitigation Center, said Feb. 21. “With the weather and the snow, we’re really looking at a good shot of moisture.” Chicago Board of Trade wheat futures fell more than two percent Feb.21 to their lowest level in nearly eight months because of the beneficial nature of the storms for the wheat crop in the U.S. Plains. Still, Fuchs and wheat agronomy experts said that the ongoing drought has been so pervasive that soil moisture deficits will not be replenished without several large storms. “This is not going to put a big dent in the drought,” said Fuchs “The moisture is welcomed, but is it a drought-buster? No, it is not. We need several more storms like this to really start turning the tide.” Kansas State University wheat agronomist Jim Shroyer agreed. Thirty centimetres of snow translates to only 25 millimetres of water for the soil, he said. “To fill the (soil moisture) profile you would need 10 feet (300 cm) of snow,” said Shroyer. Kansas is typically the top U.S.

wheat producing state, and Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Colorado are also top producers. However, a nagging drought has plagued the region, leaving producers struggling. Plants either die outright or yield poorly, if at all, without adequate soil moisture. The wheat crop will be emerging soon from winter dormancy and will require good soil moisture to grow. Soil moisture deficits range from 250 mm to greater than 330 mm, said Mary Knapp, state climatologist for Kansas. “This is just a drop in the bucket for moisture needed to address the longterm shortfall,” Knapp said. A report issued by a consortium of state and federal climatologists said more than 82 percent of the High Plains region, which includes Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado, was suffering from “severe” or worse drought as of Feb. 19. One hundred percent of Kansas was engulfed in severe drought or worse, the Drought Monitor report said. It lists severe drought as the third worst level. Extreme drought is considered the second worst and exceptional drought is the worst level of drought. More than 36 percent of the land area in Kansas was in exceptional drought, the report said. Van Allen said he was hopeful that forecasts for more snow would bring beneficial moisture. “We’ll keep our fingers crossed,” he said. “Everyone needs its.”

Do patent protections extend to multiple generations of a self-replicating product? WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — U.S. Supreme Court justices have signaled that Monsanto is in a strong position to claim that an Indiana farmer violated its soybean patent. In a case closely watched by the biotechnology industry, the court is considering whether Vernon Bowman, 75, performed an end-run around the law when he bought soybean typically used for animal feed but planted it instead. The soybean crop contained Monsanto’s patented genetics. Bowman said it was not covered by the patent because the grain he used as seed was second generation rather than the first generation sold by seed dealers. The bulk of the argument focused on whether patent protections extend to multiple generations of a selfreplicating product such as seeds, with several justices indicating that patent law should protect companies in such situations. A ruling is expected by the end of June. Justice Stephen Breyer told Bowman’s lawyer, Mark Walters, that Bowman, who was in the courtroom for oral arguments, could use the seed he had bought for other purposes but could not harvest the crop from the next generation of seed. “You know there are certain things that the law prohibits,” he said. “What it prohibits here is making a copy of the patented invention. And that is what he did.” Justice Elena Kagan clashed with Walters over his assertion that Monsanto could protect its patent rights by having contracts with farmers. “All that has to happen is that one seed escapes the web of these contracts,” she said. That single seed, “because it can self replicate in the way that it can, essentially makes all the contracts worthless,” Kagan added. Several justices appeared concerned that ruling for Bowman would stifle innovation. “Why in the world would anybody spend any money to try to improve the seed if as soon as they sold the first one, anybody could grow more and have as many of those seeds as they want?” said chief justice John Roberts.

Both sides sparred over to what extent Monsanto can exercise control over how farmers use later generations of its seeds. Without the existing patent protections, “Monsanto could not have commercialized its invention,” Monsanto lawyer Seth Waxman said. Walters countered that the court should be wary of “choosing patent rights over private property rights” when deciding what farmers can do with seeds they have purchased. U.S. president Barack Obama’s administration intervened in the case in support of the federal appeals court ruling in Monsanto’s favour. Justice department lawyer Melissa Sherry said a victory for Bowman would “eviscerate patent protections.” The case arose when, in 1999, Bowman sought to save money by buying commodity grain from a grain elevator. The seed was not identified as featuring Monsanto’s Roundup Ready technology, which protects seeds from herbicides. Bowman kept the seed generated from the successful crop and used it the following year. He repeated the pattern until 2007. Monsanto objected, saying Bowman was growing soybeans that were resistant to Roundup herbicide, meaning he was infringing on its patents. The legal question was when Monsanto’s patent protections were, in legal terminology, “exhausted.” Bowman said Monsanto’s rights were exhausted because the seeds he bought from the elevator were already second-generation. The agreements farmers sign with Monsanto when they buy seeds allows them to sell commodity grain generated by the crop. This is normally used for feed rather than planting. Bowman said Monsanto could not impose any limits on what could be done with the seeds once he bought them. Monsanto argued its rights were not exhausted because the agreements signed by the farmers also said seeds could not be sold for planting. A lower court found in favour of Monsanto and ordered Bowman to pay the company $84,456.





Ministers treated to buffet of waste OSLO, Norway (Reuters) — The United Nations treated government ministers and officials to a meal of blemished African fruit and vegetables last week to highlight how edible food is being rejected by European supermarkets. The five-course meal for 500 delegates at a week-long UN Environment Programme (UNEP) event in Nairobi, Kenya, included grilled sweet corn tamales, yellow lentil dal and mangomisu, a tropical version of the Italian dessert tiramisu. The food was all reject-grade by the standards of European buy-

ers, who sometimes cancel orders after produce has been harvested. The rejected food often rots or is fed to livestock because farmers produce more than local markets can absorb. “No economic, environmental or ethical argument can be made to justify the extent of food waste and loss currently happening in the world,� said Achim Steiner, head of the UN Environment Programme, which hosted the dinner. “With this dinner, we are demonstrating to retailers, consumers and policy-makers who can push for change that the astonishing amount of food we throw away is not just edible and nutritious, but also delicious,� he said. A total of 1.7 tonnes of food was collected, both for the meal and as a donation to local charities.

Brazil port faces labour strife SAO PAULO, Brazil (Reuters) — Brazilian dock workers are threatening a national strike after the union ended a two-day occupation of a Chinese ship Feb. 19 in Santos to protest modernization plans at the port. Unions fear the government modernization plan will cost jobs and cut wages. About 60 stevedores boarded the Zhen Hua 10 early on Feb. 18, stopping it from unloading cranes manufactured by the Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry Co. Although the protest was brief with no perceived impact on Santos port, it gave a taste of what is likely


Oil trader forays into ag LONDON, U.K. Reuters) — Top oil trader Vitol is building a global grains desk and has taken advantage of Glencore’s takeover of Canadian grains giant Viterra to hire a team of its traders, trading sources said. Vitol, which has an annual turnover of nearly $300 billion, will vie for market share along with rival trading firms Gunvor and Mercuria, which have also expanded in agricultural commodity markets as they seek to expand across new markets. The Swiss firm’s advance into

agriculture could help it spot niche opportunities in energy and soft commodity markets, which are seen as increasingly connected due partly to the growth in crop-based biofuels. “Markets are now linked in ways that they never were before. Ten years ago an oil trader could lead a happy existence without ever knowing what was happening to the corn price. Those days are gone,� said Robert Piller, director of Aupres Consult and commodities lecturer at the Geneva Business School. MARKETS

CF Industries posts profit, but outlook less promising WINNIPEG (Reuters) — CF Industries posted a record-high fourthquarter profit Feb. 19, but shares eased after investors were disappointed by outlook for the full year ahead. The company, which is the world’s No. 2 producer of nitrogen fertilizer, s a i d i t e x p e c t s “ ro b u s t g l o b a l demand� for nutrients, especially nitrogen, during the first half of 2013, but had little to say about the second half, tempering expectations after record-high full-year profit in 2012. CF said it expects U.S. farmers to plant 97 million acres of corn, the same area as in 2012, resulting in high corn prices and strong fertilizer demand. Net earnings for the fourth quarter rose to $470.7 million, or $7.40 per share, from $438.9 million, or $6.66 per share, a year ago. Net sales for the Illinois company, which also mines phosphate, fell 14 percent to $1.5 billion. Analysts had on average expected CF to earn $6.95 a share, according to Thomson Reuters. The value of fourth-quarter net sales of nitrogen fertilizer dipped 16 percent to $1.2 billion, while phosphate net sales were flat at $255.8 million, CF said. Full year 2012 profits were recordlarge at $1.8 billion, or $28.59 per share, as CF benefited from strong demand from U.S. farmers because of high grain prices. The cost of natural gas, a key input in nitrogen production, has fallen because of a supply glut, boosting margins for fertilizer makers. Nitrogen is important to boosting corn yields. Yara International ASA of Norway, the world’s No. 1 nitrogen fertilizer producer, reported lower year over year quarterly earnings in mid-February, reflecting lower prices. CF is awaiting a Canadian regulator’s approval to buy the 34 percent stake it doesn’t own in Canadian Fertilizers Ltd. from Glencore International PLC. Canadian Fertilizers is Canada’s largest nitrogen plant.

NEWS to lag official estimates by five percent and reach 90 million tonnes due to spring grain areas being smaller than anticipated, according the head of Russia’s Grain Union. Russia, normally a top wheat exporter, was hit by drought last year, which slashed the harvest by a quarter to 71 million tonnes and forced the country to step up imports to cover domestic demand. The Russian agriculture ministry targets a grain harvest of 95 million tonnes this year and expects to sow 80 million acres for spring grain. Grain Union head Arkady Zlochevsky said spring grain is likely to be sown on a smaller area than expected, at about 70 million acres. “If we sow as much as last season and if we don’t have any cataclysms with the winter crop, then with average weather conditions we can expect to harvest 90 million tonnes of grain,” Zlochevsky was quoted by Interfax news agency as saying. This level of crop would leave

about 20 million tonnes available for export for the 2013-14 marketing year, which starts on July 1, according to his estimate. During the current marketing year he expects Russia to export 15 to16 million tonnes of grain. RESEARCH

World’s richest men promote research centre TEXCOCO, Mexico (Reuters) — Carlos Slim and Bill Gates, the two richest men on the planet, inaugurated a new agricultural research centre outside Mexico’s capital, touting the millions they have donated to bolster global food security. The two participated in a ribboncutting ceremony for laboratories at the headquarters of the International Maize and Wheat Improve-

ment Center, known by its Spanish acronym CIMMYT. The complex will double the centre’s capacity to develop better seeds and more productive farmers in the developing world, officials said. “These laboratories will help attract the best talent in the world to come and work here,” said Gates, founder of Microsoft and co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Slim’s charitable foundation donated $25 million to build the new complex, while the Gates foundation has given more than $90 million for ongoing CIMMYT projects, including an $18 million grant to help boost small-farm yields in South Asia. “We have climate change but we also have significant volatility in raw materials, and that makes improved efficiency and farm productivity indispensable,” said Slim, who controls a business empire that includes Latin America’s biggest telecommu-

Mexico’s government began pumping resources into CIMMYT’s sustainable agriculture program known as MasAgro — $49 million since 2011 and another $138 million pledged over the next decade, according to data from the agriculture ministry. The government says MasAgro, which has won plaudits from the G-20, boosts farmer profits by a third and yields by half.

MOSCOW, Russia (Reuters) — Russia says it would be willing to accept meat imports from U.S. producers whose production has been approved by the European Union as being free of the feed additive ractopamine. The country banned imports of U.S. beef, pork and turkey Feb. 11, saying it was concerned about traces of ractopamine in the meat. “It would be permissible, for example, to take the list of companies allowed to supply to the EU as the list of producers that would have the right to supply products to the (Russian) Customs Union,” said Sergei Dankvert, head of Russia’s veterinary and phytosanitary service. He said the European Union’s standards regarding ractopamine-free products are identical to Russia’s. Ractopamine is used as a growth stimulant to make meat leaner, but it is banned in some countries over concerns that residues could remain in the meat and cause health problems, despite scientific evidence it is safe. The move to ban U.S. meat imports worth more than $500 million may also be an effort to help domestic producers withstand an influx of cheap meat after Russia joined the World Trade Organization. Dankvert said the veterinary and phytosanitary service, also known as Rosselkhoznadzor, believes American suppliers’ desire to provide ractopamine-free meat to Russia deserves support. “But guarantees from the U.S. state veterinary service, which has avoided contact with Rosselkhoznadzor for three months, are needed for the trade to resume,” he added. Canada, Brazil and Mexico plan to submit a renewed list of suppliers of ractopomine-free products by the end of February, Dankvert said.





Developing countries adopting biotech crops Biotech corn acres soar | While production in North and South America grew, some EU countries saw a drop in production CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — Developing countries accounted for more than half the global biotech crop area last year, although the United States remains the primary nation making use of genetically modified crops. It is the first time this has been the case. “The developments we will see over the next five years will be in favour of developing countries,” said Clive James, chair of the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-Biotech Applications, a probiotech industry organization that annually releases a survey of biotech crop plantings around the world. “That is where the mouths are that we have to feed.” Biotechnology companies have introduced a variety of genetic traits for agricultural seeds in the last 15 years. The most popular genetically modified traits alter crops so that they can tolerate herbicides or resist damaging pests. Many new types of biotech crops have “stacked traits,” or multiple enhancements. The seeds are generally more costly than conventional seeds but are marketed as helping boost productivity. Critics say biotech crops lead to increased pesticide use and environmental damage and have not been proven safe for human and animal consumption, but backers say the crops are no different than normal crops. ISAAA’s report showed a record 420 million acres of biotech crops were grown around the world last year, up 25 million acres from 2011. The number of farmers using biotech crops also rose to 17.3 million, up 600,000 from 2011, the report said. And for the first time, thanks to Brazil’s appetite for biotech corn and soybeans, developing countries accounted for more than half of the global biotech crop area, at 52 percent, while industrial countries accounted for 48 percent. Brazilian farmers grew biotech crops on 90 million acres in 2012, up 15.5 million acres from 2011 and approximately 21 percent of the global total. U.S. farmers continued to be the chief users of biotech crops, planting 172 million acres in 2012, up from 170.5 million acres in 2011, and roughly 41 percent of the global total. Argentina planted 59 million acres, or 14 percent of the global total area last year, and Canada had 28.7 million acres planted to biotech crops, or seven percent of the global total. Sudan planted biotech crops for the first time last year, sowing about 49,000 acres of biotech B.t. cotton, making it the fourth country in Africa, after South Africa, Burkina Faso and Egypt, to commercialize a biotech crop. Cuba also planted biotech crops for the first time as farmers there seeded 7,400 acres of hybrid biotech corn. Not all countries expanded the use of biotech crops last year. Colombia grew 69,614 acres of biotech cotton in 2012, down from 121,904 acres in 2011. Romania, which planted more than 17,000 acres of B.t. cotton in 2008, planted only 536 acres in 2012. Prior to its entrance into the European

Union, Romania planted more than 250,000 acres of biotech crops, the report said. Egypt planted 2,500 acres of B.t. corn in 2012, down from 6,900 acres in 2011. The EU continued to be a difficult market for biotech crop expansion efforts. Five EU countries planted Monsanto’s biotech corn last year, but BASF ceased commercial operations for biotech crops in the region, citing market resistance. “The EU region is particularly difficult to predict because the issues are

not related to science and technology considerations, but are of a political nature and influenced by ideological views of activist groups,” the ISAAA report said. The three-year outlook for biotech crops globally was “cautiously optimistic.” Biotech sugar cane is expected to be available in the near term, while enhanced vitamin A rice, trans fat-free soybeans and omega 3 rich soybeans are seen becoming prevalent, ISAAA said. The world’s first biotech wheat is expected by 2020, it added.

Horse meat scandal sparks revival in French cuisine

PARIS, France (Reuters) — The rumpus in Europe over horse meat sold as beef is bringing a bonanza for France’s 700 horse butchers, who are suddenly piquing consumer curiosity after years of decline. Non-stop media coverage has made eating horses a hot topic around office water coolers, boosting sales by up to 15 percent, said the head of France’s horse butchers’ trade group. “It’s true, there is a pickup in trade. We worked a bit more last week because our clients speak more

freely about horse meat now,” said Eric Vigoureux of Interbev Equins, who is a working horse butcher near Bordeaux in southwestern France. “With the scandal, in offices and on the workplace everybody is talking about it, so those who normally buy it feel less guilty and recommend their butcher.” France’s taste for horse meat reputedly dates back to hungry 18th century revolutionaries who ate the horses of toppled aristocrats. It flourished for two centuries and then fell out of fashion with a squea-

mish younger generation. The horse meat scandal began last month when tests in Ireland revealed some beef products also contained equine DNA, triggering product recalls across Europe. While the mislabelling aroused public concern about oversight of the food chain, it also prompted much discussion about the ethical and gastronomic merits of eating horses by choice. “I had a lot of feedback from horse butchers all across the nation, saying that there were a lot of clients last week,” Vigoureux said, estimating sales were up 10 to 15 percent nat i o n w i d e s i n c e t h e s c a n d a l erupted. “Clients feel completely unapologetic about it now,” he added. Otis Lebert, head chef at Le Taxi Jaune restaurant in Paris’ historical Marais district, said he too has noticed a surge in interest. His restaurant is one of the few Paris bistros serving horse dishes such as cured horse sausage and horse brain. “But call me in three months and let’s see if it is still the case,” he said.


Aussies enjoy refined dining at McDonald’s

New Varro™ herbicide for wheat. Freedom from Group 1 herbicide resistance. Freedom to select your preferred broadleaf partner. Freedom to re-crop back to sensitive crops like lentils.


SYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) — Would you like a knife and fork with that? In a world first, a McDonald’s franchise in Australia is offering full table service for its dine-in customers, complete with china plates, glassware and metal utensils in place of the more usual paper boxes and plastic. Meals are also brought to the table by waiters and waitresses, and diners can daintily dab their lips with cloth napkins after eating. “It’s very popular,” store manager Michelle Steain said about the fiveweek trial service. “Everyone seems to be loving it.” Glenn and Katia Dwarte, owners of the franchise in Warilla, sought permission for the idea after their habit of serving Glenn’s parents with cutlery and plates at the restaurant caught the attention of other diners. The dine-in offer is open to customers who buy premium meals between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. This is not the first time that the Dwartes, who have owned the store for 20 years, have pioneered innovations for the fast food chain. Last year, they caught the attention of McDonald’s head office in Chicago after creating an iPhone app that allows customers to place an order and pay in advance before they arrive in the store. Dining in is the second world first for McDonald’s Australia after it last month temporarily changed signs at selected stores across the country to Macca’s, the affectionate local nickname for the chain.

Cast-off horses find new lives as RCMP mounts Duke and Major appear at Las Vegas rodeo BY BRENDA KOSSOWAN FREELANCE WRITER

The Queen’s cowboys have finally made it to the National Finals Rodeo. Held in Las Vegas at the end of each rodeo season, the NFR is the Super Bowl of rodeos, drawing competitors who have earned top points across North America during the year, said cpl. Dave Heaslip, in charge of livestock investigations for the RCMP in central and northern Alberta. Heaslip’s journey as one of the first Mounties to make an official appearance at the NFR began two years ago when his counterpart for central and southern Alberta, cpl. Chris Reister, was looking for a black horse. Heaslip and Reister both keep a small number of saddle horses, used primarily for working cattle. Heaslip also has the benefit of a two-year stint with the RCMP’s Musical Ride. Reister, who is based in Didsbury, had heard that horse buyer Scott Irvine of Crossfield, Alta., had picked up a couple of black horses. Reister felt one of them might be a good roping prospect that could also be suitable for ceremonial duty with the RCMP. He invited Heaslip, who lives near Ponoka, to come along, and that’s where Heaslip found the horse he now calls Duke. He was about four years old and a little on the thin side. He was afraid of people and difficult to catch, but Heaslip liked his looks and felt he had good potential as a saddle horse. Reister also found a horse that he felt would suit his needs with the right care and training. With Major and Duke in the trailer and ready for a new home, Heaslip and Reister started talking about their fit as ambassadors for the RCMP. It was a conversation with stock contractor Wayne Vold of High River, Alta., whose clients includes the Calgary Stampede and NFR, that started Heaslip and Reister on their path to Las Vegas. Vold’s role with the NFR includes

helping produce features for Canadian Night. He invited Heaslip and Reister to join the Canadian Night features, held last Dec. 13. While working with their commanding officer for consent, the two cowboys found an indoor arena near Ponoka where they could work with their horses. A major challenge would be to teach two young animals that had been largely neglected to accept the noise, crowds and bright lights of the NFR. Duke would have to get past his fear of people if he were to face more than 19,000 rodeo fans. The two men worked on their horses as often as they could, riding them over tarps and playing loud noises, including fireworks, to prepare them for the road ahead. They took Duke and Major to the 2012 Calgary Stampede, where the horses and their riders, dressed in the RCMP’s trademark red serge, greeted crowds of people. Duke was a perfect gentleman, never moving a muscle except as required, said his proud owner. They were ready for Vegas. Heaslip said he was apprehensive as he and his partners carried their country’s flag and their organization’s reputation into the NFR arena for Canadian Night Dec. 13. They rode through a thick haze of artificial smoke into a bright, noisy arena and stopped at the centre.  A laser light system was flying the Canadian flag around the arena, over the crowds and toward the spot where the horses stood. Heaslip said he could see Duke eyeing the flag coming from his left. The horse raised his left foot as it slid by. “He thought it was real.” Duke and Major are now back at their respective homes, learning more about the life of packing cowboys, roping steers and mugging for admirers. Irvine called it a Cinderella story, where two horses cast off by their previous owners have found knowledgeable and caring owners. He said he wishes more of the neglected horses that end up in his trailers could find lives like that.


Producers ponder CP rail-line buy BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Farmers and businesses from the Foremost, Alta., area are considering buying a section of railway between Foremost and Stirling. Canadian Pacific Railway abandoned the 75 kilometre stretch in 2002, and some sections would require extensive work to become operational. Farmer Paul Laqua, who is leading

the initiative, said an offer has been made to CP but no response had been received as of Feb. 21. “We’re just going through all the motions right now,” he said. The group, which Laqua said involves 60 farmers, companies and other entities, has obtained federal funding through the Growing Forward program for a feasibility study into buying the line and operating a short-line railway. The study is now underway.

REAL Results! “We trialed Awaken ST on a field of CDC Utmost. The crop was seeded in early April and yielded exceptional results. “The wheat emerged evenly, grew vigorously and never looked back. In June, the growing conditions got very wet in our area, but the crop that was treated with Awaken ST was deeply rooted and well established. It continued to grow very well through the wet season and there was very little drowned out area on the trial field. “The wheat that was treated with Awaken ST was the most consistent and even wheat crop that we have ever produced on this field. We plan to treat all of our wheat with Awaken ST in 2013. “I am excited to awake my crop to its full potential!” Inland Seeds Corp. Tim Pizzey, Binscarth, MB

Researchers put bees to work Market expanding for Bee vectoring | Bees used to distribute biological control agents

high-oleic vegetable oil Sunflowers | Organic growers may have an advantage


A researcher who has used bees to distribute biological control agents in greenhouses and organic sunflower fields says the technology has potential in other field crops, including canola. Peter Kevan of the University of Guelph is one of several researchers in Ontario who have worked with bee vectoring over the last two decades, using managed populations of bumblebees to help suppress plant diseases and insect pests. Bees collect a control agent on their legs and bodies as they pass through a dispenser attached to beehives and eventually shed it as they forage and pollinate plants. He said the application method could work in canola production, which is commonly associated with honeybees in Western Canada. “We expect that we’ll be able to develop a technology which will certainly be able to protect canola crops against sclerotinia and insect pests, but at the moment we haven’t gotten so far as to say whether using bee vectoring on those crops would be cost effective,” said Kevan. The technique isn’t new, but recent steps have brought the application method closer to mainstream com-

mercial production. The Pest Management Regulatory Agency has approved the delivery method in greenhouses for Botanigard 22WP, a biological insecticide based on the fungus beauveria bassiana, while Bee Vectoring Technology looks to commercialize related technology. “We’re constantly trying to move ahead here and show that this is sort of like the tip of the iceberg, so to speak,” said Les Shipp of Agriculture Canada, who has worked with bee vectoring in greenhouse studies. “There’s a lot of potential.” Studies using Botanigard have determined the concentrations required to manage whitefly and tarnished plant bugs on greenhouse tomatoes and sweet peppers. The results are encouraging, providing acceptable yield and quality. The method also allows growers to reduce labour costs because the bees continually spread the agent, reducing the need for multiple spray applications of chemical pesticides. “All the different horticultural crops, people are actually now moving a little bit, too, as seeing the advantage of using commercial bumblebees as opposed to just using the native pollinator,” said Shipp. Work is ongoing in greenhouse and

field trials on fruit crops and sunflowers. Commercial trials on organic sunflower crops in Ontario, using a separate agent, have shown a significant yield boost while providing sclerotinia control, said Kevan. “Although this technology can be used in an organic setting, it doesn’t have to be used in an organic setting,” he said. “It looks as if the cost effectiveness of this technology is certainly competitive, perhaps even cheaper, than the usual fungicide treatments that organic grow ers would not be allowed to use.” Field trials were conducted with honeybees 10 years ago to deliver beauveria bassiana to canola fields in Ontario to control lygus bugs, but more work is required, said Kevan. He said the project needs funding and partners, but researchers must also tailor the technology to the needs of honeybees if it is ever to be adapted in the West. Kevan said he hopes to do further work with canola over the coming growing season, while also introducing the technology to sunflower growers in Manitoba. “We’ll have to wait and see where things go on the canola front but we’re working on it and we should have a lot of information out by the end of this summer,” he said.


A big push into the lucrative higholeic market is now happening with sunflowers, but a senior marketer says the goal isn’t to land a giant food processor. “The ideal mix is a bunch of small users,” Archer Daniels Midland sunflower merchandiser Guy Christensen told the Manitoba Special Crops Symposium. “It’s a much more stable and predictable market.” High-oleic vegetable oil is a premium product on the leading edge of high-value food trends, with the canola, soybean and sunflower sectors all hoping to grab as much market share as possible. Canola’s success has been huge, with Nexera gobbling up sales to food processors. High oleic soybean varieties are just now easing their way into the market. Sunflowers were an early winner, becoming the sole source of oil for some Frito-Lay chips in the 2000s with its mid-oleic, low saturated fat varieties and then its high-oleic types. However, the crop lost its exclusivity when limited crop produc-

tion and price spikes prompted the company to start using a mix of o ils, do m inated by h igh -o leic canola. The decision rocked the sunflower industry, and Christensen said having many steady users rather than one big giant will probably provide a more stable future. Now that high-oleic sunflower production is surging, Christensen said the industry’s goal should be to take advantage of canola’s success and make sure it is part of the high-oleic trend. “We have the profile, so we can piggyback,” he said. High-oleic sunflowers are nongenetically modified, which might turn out to be a marketing edge. Christensen said many small food manufacturers would like to be able to market a GM-free product where labels are required. “It’s going to fly off the shelf,” he said. However, food companies need to list sunflower oil on their packaging if more sunflower oil sales are to be achieved, and some have balked at that. Christensen said the American sunflower industry has made it a priority to get sunflower oil on more labels.

Collective effort essential to combat resistant weeds


Neighbours affect neighbours | Producers must work together and take action against herbicide resistance in their areas BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

BALTIMORE, Md. — Farmers are often categorized as rugged individuals who prefer to do things on their own and in their own way. However, that “go it alone” attitude won’t work when it comes to herbicide resistant weeds, said David Ervin, an environmental sciences professor at Portland State University. “I’m just convinced that individual efforts, alone, will not suffice,” Ervin told the Weed Science Society of America annual meeting held in Baltimore in early February. “If they (farmers) continue to go it on their own … they’ll simply find that they are worse off in the long run.” The association released 12 best management practices last year to help growers cope with herbicide resistance, which has become a significant agronomic and economic issue in the southern United States and the U.S. Midwest as more weeds develop resistance to multiple modes of action. However, Ervin said the list was incomplete. “(It’s) like the missing best management practice. If (we) don’t have some kind of a collective effort … we’re simply not going to make the kind of progress that people want, in terms of corralling this issue.” Ervin, who participated in a panel discussion about the sociological and economic aspects of herbicide resistance, said his own father bristled at the thought of working with others. “I was raised on a farm and my father was as individualistic as you could imagine. He wouldn’t want to join anything.” However, Ervin’s dad understood that his crops suffered if the neighbours didn’t control the weeds on their land. As an example of the value of collective action, Ervin referred to a case in California where growers were squabbling over a common supply of groundwater. The farmers eventually realized that the success of their farms depended on the actions of other growers and vice versa. History and current experiences

The idea now is to show them that managing weed resistance is as much of a common resource issue as helping your neighbour harvest their crop.” RAY JUSSAUME SOCIOLOGY PROFESSOR

show that producers do co-operate for the common good, said Ray Jussaume, a sociology professor from Michigan State University. He said the agricultural pioneers who settled western North America succeeded partly because they were determined, resourceful people, but help from their fellow pioneers also played a crucial role in their success. Neighbours coming together to harvest a farmer’s crop when he falls ill during the growing season is a modern day example of co-operation, he added. “They (growers) are already doing it in other areas. The idea now is to show them that managing weed resistance is as much of a common resource issue as helping your neighbour harvest their crop.” However, the difficulty is persuading farmers to act collectively on herbicide resistance Ervin said control is a key to successful collective action. A small and local group of producers should control the collective effort to slow herbicide resistance in their region, rather than a global, top down approach. “You may want to create little nests of associations within a larger umbrella,” he said. “What you’re doing in building this kind of collective group is establishing trust…. They have to trust one

Trait Stewardship Responsibilities

another to be responsible and behave according to the rules.” Jussaume said weed scientists and policy-makers need to bring other experts onboard, such as sociologists, to understand farmer’s attitudes and perceptions regarding herbicide resistance. For instance, the issue of personal responsibility will need to be part of the sales pitch to get growers on board if they blame the biotech industry for the problem by failing to warn them about the risks of herbicide resistance. However, Jussaume said it’s obvious to him as a sociologist that technology didn’t cause the problem. The critical issue is managing existing biotech traits and the technologies in development. “The way out of the conundrum is the approaches that people develop,” he said. “It’s going to have to take (people) … to come up with approaches that recognize the complexity of the issue. Its not just, ‘here’s the technology and use it.’ ”

Dow AgroSciences still doesn’t have the necessary approvals to launch its Enlist corn system in Canada. However, a company representative says there is a chance that Enlist corn, a variety with stacked herbicide resistance, could be seeded in Ontario this spring. The Pesticide Management Regulatory Agency approved Dow’s Enlist trait for corn and soybeans last fall, which provides 2,4-D tolerance on top of glyphosate tolerance. Dow had expected Canadian growers to seed Enlist corn this year, but the company is still waiting on two approvals, said Jeff Loessin, Dow AgroSciences Canada’s portfolio marketing leader for crop protection. The company needs Canadian regulatory approval for its Enlist Duo herbicide, which is a combination of glyphosate and a new formulation of 2,4-D. “We’re not going to launch the seed without the herbicide approval. They go together,” Loessin said. “The herbicide is designed to work with the crop, but it’s also designed to deliver benefits, as far as drift reduction and low volatility.” Dow also requires U.S. trade approval. “(With) the grain movement between our two countries, we don’t want to get into a situation where if

we’ve grown the crop in Canada, we’re restricting movement of that crop into the U.S.,” he said. “We’re not going to launch in Canada without the U.S. trade approval.” Complicating matters, most corn growers in Ontario and Quebec have already ordered seed for spring planting. Only a small number of growers would likely switch to Enlist this spring, even if it received the necessary approvals. “We’ve obviously talked to corn growers and we’ve got a list of who some of the interested people would be,” Loessin said. “If we get our approval, (those) will be the people we’ll go to see … and get some seed in the ground this spring.” Dow announced in Januar y it would push back the U.S. release of Enlist corn until next year because the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Environmental Protection Agency have delayed approval amid an outcry of protests. Environmental groups, non-governmental organizations and individuals submitted more than 450,000 comments to the USDA, opposing the Enlist weed control system. Enlist critics include a number of weed scientists who claim stacked traits will exacerbate the herbicide resistance crisis in North America because weeds will soon develop resistance to glyphosate and 2,4-D.

Three candidates vie for Sask. NDP top job Leadership convention March 9 | 11,000 party members will decide who becomes official opposition leader BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

The race for the Saskatchewan NDP leadership is down to three candidates after Regina economist Erin Weir withdrew last week. Weir publicly threw his support to Ryan Meili, a Saskatoon doctor who placed second behind Dwain Lin-

genfelter in the NDP’s 2009 leadership contest. Weir said he and Meili have similar views on key issues. Meili was also running ahead in the race. “Some of the issues that really established common ground between Ryan and I came to the fore in the last few debates and they were

CAM BROTEN grew up in northern Saskatchewan and Saskatoon and comes from strong NDP roots. His grandfather, Hans Broten, was an MLA in the Tommy Douglas and Woodrow Lloyd governments and then in opposition. Educated in international studies and political science, Broten worked as a health policy analyst with the provincial government and then the Saskatchewan Medical Association before he was elected to the legislature to represent Saskatoon Massey Place in 2007 and again in 2011. He is married to Ruth, and they have two daughters, Ingrid and Clara. Broten said the new leader has two tasks in rural Saskatchewan: rebuild the party and strengthen the region. “On the party side, we recognize we haven’t always done everything perfectly,” he said. “There’s a need for humility.” On the agriculture side, he said there is a need to revitalize the family farm. His agricultural platform includes stronger local food markets, more organic farming, a better crop insurance program, feasible intergenerational farm transfer and more opportunities for farmers and rural communities to produce power. He also calls for better tracking of indicators such as food exports versus imports, farm debt to asset ratios and input costs. Broton said foreign acquisition of farmland was raised during the all-candidate debates. There is a need to make sure the current farm ownership legislation is enforced and perhaps strengthened, he added.

quite important in informing this decision,” Weir told reporters Feb. 20, referring to a series of all-candidates forums held around the province. Some preferential ballots are already in the mail, but Weir said he didn’t expect his decision would affect the overall result because of the one-member, one-vote system.

“It’s only a minority of ballots that have been cast,” he said. More than 11,000 party members are eligible to vote for Meili, Saskatoon MLA Cam Broten or Regina MLA Trent Wotherspoon. Party officials said few of the ballots had been returned as of last week. Most were expected to arrive this week, ahead of the March 9 leader-

RYAN MEILI , a Saskatoon doctor, grew up on a farm near Courval, south of Moose Jaw, and said he saw firsthand how political decisions can change farm life. Meili said rural discussion should focus on the province’s options for enhancing the quality of rural life, such as enabling easier succession and assisting with economic development in small communities. He said a rural outreach program at the party level could help build consensus within regions. “From there, we could come up with a mechanism to develop a platform so people see their ideas reflected,” he said. Meili also raised the issue of farmland ownership, saying people regularly mention it to him. An assessment of who owns the land and the ramifications of that ownership is needed, he said. He favours rewarding landowners for conservation efforts and carbon sinks, and advocates more public research to develop farming methods and crops that will be needed as the climate changes. He also promotes more organic and local food production and renewable on-farm energy production. He said some farmers are already talking about the need for local marketing co-operatives in the absence of the CWB monopoly. Co-operative solutions can improve the livelihoods of farmers and communities, he added. Last year Meili published a book, A Healthy Society: How a Focus on Health Can Revive Canadian Democracy. He and his wife, Mahli, have a son, Abraham.

ship convention in Saskatoon. The winner will lead the official opposition, which has just nine seats in the legislature — four in Saskatoon, three in Regina and two in the northern constituencies. All three candidates agree there is significant work to do to rebuild the party in its traditional base of rural Saskatchewan.

TRENT WOTHERSPOON was raised in Regina and has represented Regina Rosemont since 2007. He said the NDP has lost its strong relationship with rural voters, but the values that drew people to the party haven’t changed and will bring people back. “If we’re going back to our solid roots of being common sense and compassionate, community minded, a sense of co-operation, these values still exist in rural Saskatchewan and we should be there and ready to work right across this province,” he said. Wotherspoon, who is a teacher, has committed to establishing a council on agricultural competitiveness that would advise a leader and premier on issues such as input costs, transportation and farm support programs. He said the province should be better at finding solutions for producers who have to deal with decisions they didn’t make, such as CWB reform. For example, he suggested the three prairie provincial governments work together to keep the shelter belt centre near Indian Head, Sask., in public hands. Wotherspoon also flagged farmland ownership as a concern that people have raised, and he said there should be some onus on buyers to provide proof that their capital is not from foreign sources. He said there is a role for the province in helping remove barriers to local food production, storage and distribution. Like the other two candidates, Wotherspoon believes in more organic production and renewable energy production. He is married to Stephanie, who is also a teacher.


UN report scolds Canadian gov’t for growing food insecurity National food strategy recommended | The report advises more emphasis on developing local food systems and less focus on export markets BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

A report to be presented to the United Nations’ Council on Human Rights calls on Canada to develop “right to food” legislation as the number of food insecure Canadians grows. Citing poverty as the main cause of food insecurity in Canada, the report to be presented March 4 in Geneva calls for a national food strategy, a poverty reduction strategy and an

enriched social assistance system with increased minimum wage levels. It also calls on Canada to put less agricultural policy emphasis on exports and more on developing local food systems and markets. Report author Olivier De Schutter, special UN rapporteur on the right to food, visited Canada last spring and met with local community food activists, aboriginal communities, farm groups and government officials in Ottawa. His reception from the Conserva-

tive government was frosty. Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz said De Schutter was pursing a political agenda and should be concentrating on developing counties where food shortages are endemic rather than Canadian agricultural policies. “The single best way to make sure that families in Canada and around the world can access the food they need is to make sure our farmers remain successful,” he said in May. “We are making sure that families in Canada and around the world can

access the food they need by promoting free and unfettered trade.” Health minister Leona Aglukkag, the only minister to meet with De Schutter, said she was insulted that he was prescribing policies for northern aboriginal communities without ever visiting the north. At the time of De Schutter’s visit to Ottawa, opposition MPs embraced his criticism of Canada’s record of hunger amid plenty. Last week, when the text of the report to be presented at the UN was

made public, it made barely a ripple. There were no House of Commons questions or government reaction. The advocacy group Food Secure Canada, which organized meetings for De Schutter when he was in Canada last year, called on the government to take the findings and recommendations seriously. “Our members sincerely hope that this report will be neither shelved nor dismissed,” executive director Diana Bronson said in a statement on the report.



OFA supports premier in ag minister role


Throne speech | Nothing specific for agriculture




… I think she is eager to learn and I’ve been meeting with her once a week. MARK WALES ONTARIO FEDERATION OF AGRICULTURE

get than having the premier as agriculture minister? It should work well and my goal is to bring her consensus solutions from the sector that she can move on.” Wales said the OFA wants to be certain farm support funding and programs are maintained. Many of the policies the sector needs are changes in regulations that would cost the government little, he added. He also said it is important that the farm lobby make its arguments for change quickly, considering the Liberals have a minority government that could be defeated on its budget. Wynne’s surprise decision to become her own agriculture minister comes after the three-term Liberal government gradually lost almost all of its once-extensive rural support. The opposition Progressive Conservatives now hold most rural seats and plan to use that rural base as a key platform to try to defeat the Liberals in the next election, which could come as early as this spring.

World’s Largest Post-Patent Crop Protection Company



Ontario Liberal premier Kathleen Wynne has been in office for only a few weeks, but the province’s farmers say they are optimistic they have a friend in government. Wynne, a Toronto politician with a long history of urban activism, took the unprecedented step of naming herself agriculture minister when she became premier. “Ontarians grow the best food in the world, that’s why we’re continuing to push hard to promote local foods and support our farmers with risk management programs,” she told the Ontario Federation of Agriculture before the provincial election in early February. Last week’s throne speech opening the Ontario legislative session promised infrastructure investment but nothing specific for agriculture. This week, Wynne and her cabinet attend a meeting in Toronto about the need for infrastructure across the province, including rural Ontario. OFA president Mark Wales said Wynne is off to a good start despite the lack of agricultural mention in the throne speech. “Clearly the real test will be in the budget later, but I think she is eager to learn and I’ve been meeting with her once a week,” he said. ”How much higher profile can we

CWD moose not a threat









The discovery of a moose with chronic wasting disease in Alberta does not mean the disease will spread to other moose, say Alberta Environment officials. “CWD is designed to transmit among deer, but not among moose,” said department spokesperson Nikki Booth. “An individual moose can become infected from spillover from infected deer. There is no evidence or reason to believe the disease can or will establish a sustaining nucleus of disease in moose and transmit from moose to moose to moose.” The moose was killed in a collision with a vehicle last November on Highway 41 near Medicine Hat, in an area known to have CWD in the wild deer population. Government officials released the information Feb. 19. As part of the government’s CWD surveillance program, hunters must submit heads from deer shot in 33 wildlife management units along the Alberta and Saskatchewan border and in the Battle River and Red Deer River valleys. Booth said the government tests emaciated cervids and cervids that are “opportunistically available,” including ones that have collided


with vehicles. She doesn’t believe the moose was emaciated. Margo Pybus, wildlife disease specialist with Alberta’s Fish and Wildlife, said CWD in a moose is rare, even in Colorado where moose share range with deer that have 35 percent prevalence of CWD. The Alberta government has tested more than 51,000 cervids for the brain wasting disease since 1998. There have been 149 confirmed cases in wild deer. This is the first positive case of a moose in Canada. Moose in Colorado and Wyoming have tested positive for the disease. “They still only spike the occasional case in a moose,” Pybus said.“We don’t think moose go nose to nose with mule deer. The way these moose are getting infected are through prions that are contaminating the ground.” The moose contracted the disease in an area where white-tailed and mule deer have been known to have had the disease since 2006. “What this moose is telling us is that we have enough CWD prions shed into the environment sufficient to have resulted in this individual moose being infected. We don’t believe that is going to roar through the moose population. It may be years before we see another case in a moose. It literally is spillover from the infected deer,” said Pybus.

Political motive suspected in China’s pork import threat BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

China’s threat to interrupt American pork imports comes when hog producers don’t need another blow to their confidence. “They’re a significant player, especially in the context of our market, which seems to be struggling to find new markets and find support,” said Tyler Fulton, head of risk management for Hams Marketing. “It’s a signal of how tenuous that trading relationship is.” The Chinese government announced it wants to have independent verification that the U.S. pork it imports does not contain traces of ractopamine, which helps pigs convert feedgrains into muscle rather than fat. Ractopamine is legal in the United States and Canada and is generally regarded as safe by world food safety experts. However, a number of countries ban its domestic use or the import of meat that comes from animals that have consumed it. Known as Paylean in the North American hog industry, the substance is fed to most commercial pigs but not those destined for the Chinese or other ractopamine-

unfriendly markets. Companies such as Smithfield in the U.S. and HyLife in Neepawa, Man., slaughter only ractopaminefree pigs for Chinese shipments. The announcement that China wants independent verification of U.S. pork doesn’t just add a complication to the industry but also threatens to result in the rejection of shipments already bound for China. However, the greater worry to the market is what it suggests about the growing Chinese demand for North American pork. Can that demand be counted on for the future if the Chinese government decides to block it? “It makes us uneasy,” said Ron Plain of the University of Missouri. China’s new position has not arisen out of problems or reported incidents of ractopamine-tainted pork. Instead, many analysts are guessing that it is being driven by a desire to support the domestic Chinese hog production industry, which the government has been trying to expand. With fewer imports, domestic prices would rise. “It seems like a political play to protect their own,” said Fulton. China has been a success story for North America’s hog industry, con-

suming 12 percent of U.S. pork exports last year and a much higher percentage of offal. Plain said that is equivalent to 2.6 percent of total U.S. pork production. Canada sold more than 100,000 tonnes of pork to China last year for $129 million. It makes China only the fifth most valuable market for Canada, but Canada relies far more on exports than does the U.S. Sixty percent of Canadian production left the country last year. Canada has previously had problems with China blocking imports because of ractopamine, but that doesn’t appear to be the situation now. The present situation appears to be between the U.S. and China. However, analysts said that doesn’t alleviate the danger to prairie hog prices. “It doesn’t matter, we’re so integrated,” said Fulton. “Our price is their price.” Pork and hog prices did not take an immediate hit following the news about China, seeming to move little. However, the news hit after a threeweek price slide that has taken May Chicago lean hogs futures down to $89.50 per hundredweight from $96.50 per cwt. at the beginning of February.

B.C. invests in new inspectors Provincial plants | New system will replace services provided by CFIA BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

The British Columbia government will set up its own system of provincial meat inspectors to replace services now provided by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. B.C. agriculture minister Norm Letnick said Feb. 22 that $6.4 million has been budgeted to set up a provincial system. As well, inspection is expected to cost $5.6 million a year. The province paid the CFIA $1.2 million per year to handle meat inspection, but the federal government is withdrawing services for provincial plants at the end of this year. The CFIA will continue to inspect federal plants in the province. Letnick said his ministry considered various inspection options before making its plan. A risk-based system, though cheaper, was rejected, he said. “It can be less expensive, but the industry made it very clear to government, and we accepted as well, that the best solution would be to have the traditional inspection system,” the minister said in a conference call. The province will initially hire 43 people to operate the system, which will be in place by Jan. 1. Trained provincial meat inspectors will be placed in Class A and B abattoirs. The former are slaughter and processing facilities, and the latter are slaughter only. Audit programs will be implemented for these plants, as well as a requirement for written food safety procedures.

The plan includes a two-year pilot project that will issue up to five more Class E licences to producers in the nor th Okanagan. That type of licence allows producers to slaughter and sell up to 10 animals per year directly to consumers. Animals can be slaughtered on the farm and taken to a cut and wrap facility located within a two hour drive. Letnick said grocery stores are interested in offering more B.C. beef, so additional licences provided to smaller producers should not affect sales by Class A and B licence holders. These new licences are expected to be issued and put in place by fall, said Letnick. “We’re going to roll that out over the next two years. We’re going to make sure that we test our assumptions, that they can provide safe meat products, that they are not going to adversely impact the economic viability of our As and Bs.” A mobile slaughter facility will be established in 100 Mile House because of that region’s distance from abattoirs. Other communities can also apply for mobile slaughter facilities if they meet certain criteria. The provincial health department, the B.C. Cattlemen’s Association and the B.C. Association of Abattoirs issued statements in support of the new inspection plan. “Our goal as ranchers is to always deliver a safe product to our consumers,” said BCCA general manager Kevin Boon. “With input from industry, we believe the provincial government has done a very good job of developing a system that will satisfy the needs of consumers, producers and processors alike.”

Big baler off to field under own power Baling goes solo | Two companies 2,600 km apart build a new big-square baler BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

TULARE, Calif. — Does the world really need a self-propelled bigsquare baler? Dave Boschsler says yes. “The world didn’t know it was going to be taking straw and corn stalks and miscanthus and using them to create alcohol, either. Big balers were for feed, but now we’re feeding a process as well as livestock,” said Bochsler, who works for Allied Systems, which builds Freeman balers. “We build tough, high capacity balers and we had a request from the biofuel industry to come up with a baler that could bale everything from standing, dry material to cereal straw or (corn) stover dropped behind the combine … and (we wanted to) make sure it would still do a good job on hay, to keep the machine working and making money as much of the time as possible.” Allied usually fully engineers its machines before putting them into production, but for its first few selfpropelled balers it turned to Gary Kelderman in Oskaloosa, Iowa, who does design-engineer equipment projects. Bochsler said Allied needed someone who knew agricultural equipment and could experiment. Kelderman said the concept is simple, but the execution needed to be robust enough to handle tough crops and run big headers and rotary rakes for single pass production. “This baler (the Freeman 1592D SP2) is already a hydraulic machine, right down to the plunger, so it was a good bet for customization,” he said while attending World Ag Expo in Tulare, California. Tipton, Calif., dairy producer Danny Faria has several of the 1592 pulltype balers, and says the machines have proven to be good investments. “We put up a lot of hay and with feed prices where they are we can’t afford to be down and losing production. They are real tough machines. Pricy, but you get what you pay for with this stuff,” said the 6,500-cow dairy farmer about the Freeman core units that Kelderman built around. The Iowa design-build specialist created a frame that would carry the driveline and the baler. He also put in a Deere nine litre, 375 horsepower engine, attached it to a Sauer Danfoss 90 series hydrostatic transmission and used them to feed four Poclain M621 steerable wheel motors.

The 375 horsepower Kelderman-Freeman 1592 baler has been in testing with both a hay header from MacDon Industries and a rotary rake from Vermeer. | MICHAEL RAINE PHOTOS LEFT: Gary Kelderman and Dave Boschsler collaborated to build the high capacity baler for the biofuel industry.

Company offers own version of post patent herbicide Mana Canada separates Dow’s Prepass combo of florasulam and glyphosate BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

One of Western Canada’s more popular herbicide products will appear on the market from a postpatent producer. Prepass, Dow’s combination of florasulam and glyphosate as a two part tank mix, controls weeds ahead of seeding spring wheat, durum, barley and oats. Since its registration in 2003, the product has become a regular feature on many farms where canola and wheat form the bulk of the rotation.

The Group 2 florasulam looks after volunteer glyphosate tolerant canola and provides residual control of most broadleaf pests, while the Group 9 glyphosate provides rapid burn off and control of nearly all other weeds. The product provides control of difficult to kill weeds such as dandelion, wild buckwheat, hawk’s beard, cleavers and shepherd’s purse. Mana Canada has made a significant change to its version, called Priority. The florasulam will be untied from the glyphosate, allowing for other brands and rates beyond the

» CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE three, 38 by 46 inch faced bales, but 34 and 36 inch sizes can be made using a different face plate. Bochsler said his company has been working with Winnipeg’s MacDon Industries, and the first baler from the Kelderman-Freeman partnership, the 1592D SP2 4x4x4 Biomass Special, will sport a MacDon header or a Vermeer basket rake to collect product. Kelderman said he can see several uses for the baler. “It has potential to work without the windrow for rapid drying of hay as well,” said Kelderman. “We can see this baler being busy up in Canada as biomass fuel develops. You’ve got those big farms and think big.” Dropping the header or rake leaves the machine ready for traditional baling. Bochsler said the system is also designed to reduce wheel tracking in the field. “There is already way too much traffic in fields. Soil compaction is an issue for just about everybody. If it is baling a grain crop (the field) has already seen three to five or more sprayer trips, seeding, maybe fertilizer applications and then a combine. The last thing you want after a baler is an overloaded tractor picking bales and putting them on a highway truck and trailer in your field,” he said.

The product can be used for chemfallow and fall applications ahead of the cereals, similar to Prepass. “We’re the first alternative source of (Prepass),” Mann said.

Priority, offered by Mana Canada, allows farmers to pick their own glyphosate to mix with florasulam. | FILE PHOTO “Last year was enormous for that product in some parts of the Prairies, especially where there had been those back to back flooded fields.” The product will be available in a 6.4 litre jug that treats 160 acres and will be packed two per case.

Mana Canada said Priority will be widely available this year. Florasulam appears in a variety of cereal herbicide products, but only Mana has an off-patent registration in Canada for the glyphosate tank mix product.

Wrap artist provides high energy for moist bales One-person stretch wrapping machine provides barrier to mould and yeast BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

BRANDON — Bale and wrap is the only option when wet weather prevents proper hay dry-down and farmers aren’t set up for silage bunkers. Forty-five to 55 percent moisture hay starts to spoil rather than ferment if a wet bale sits for more than 12 hours. Oxygen will spurs growth of moulds and yeasts, making protein The TRL 5000 AX2 is capable of stretch wrapping 120 big round bales per unavailable to the animal when the bale is finally opened. hour. | TUBLINE MANUFACTURING PHOTO

However, stretch wrapping bales isn’t just for last ditch, wet weather panic conditions. Many producers routinely wrap their bales because it lets them harvest without leaf loss when crop quality is at its peak. Bill Denstedt, operations manager for Tubeline Manufacturing in Elmira, Ont., said hay is either dry or wet. “And if it’s wet, you should bale and wrap it as quickly as possible,” he said while showing the company’s TRL 5000 wrapper at Ag Days in Brandon earlier this winter.

He said timing and labour availability issues prompted the company to design the TRL 5000 A X2 to be a one-person wrapping operation. Automation and remote control allows the operator to keep working the front-end loader or skid steer while the TRL wraps the bales. Denstedt said the TRL 5000 requires only one bale to start a new row. Most machines need more bales to get a row started. “When you’ve finished a row, you remotely instruct the TRL 5000 to turn around and start another row, wherever you want it,” he said. “The main thing is that it does an excellent job of stretch wrapping to keep oxygen out of the hay. On high moisture hay, we stretch 10 or 12 wraps. And we have end caps on both ends, so it’s sealed tight.” Tubeline wrappers have their towing tongue at the front, so a pickup can spot the wrapper. Once the first bale is wrapped, the operator can remain focused on picking up bales and feeding them into the machine. A bale touches the trigger plate when it goes in and the ramp brings it forward. It is gradually pushed forward through the hoop, where two fork prongs support the bale in the air so the stretch wrap can go all the way around. “The hoop has tensioners to keep the stretch wrap tight as possible without breaking it,” he said. “The machine ensures the wraps are air tight. And the operator has to make sure the bales are tight up against each other. The hydraulic drive system is on the rear tires only. The operator uses his remote to turn the machine around and position it for the next row.” It is available with a 13 or 20 horsepower engine for driving the hydraulic pumps that feed the orbital motors on the wrapper and drive wheels. The TLR 5000 AX2 that was displayed at Ag Days wraps only round bales, while the TL 5500AX2 and TL6500 AX2 can wrap big round bales and big square bales, rapidly switching between formats. The engine and hydraulic pump are hung below the chassis, just under the control panel, which allows easy access for service and repair. Bale size, weight and elapsed time before opening all vary. Tubeline wrappers have limit switches so that the cycle time fits the projected time requirements of the bale. A twin wrap option doubles the thickness of the wraps with each turn of the hoop for when the operator knows the bales won’t be opened for a lengthy period or thinks tough straw might puncture the wrap. The ram runs on rubber wheels in a closed track system, which reduces energy requirements and parts wear compared to conventional steel-onsteel systems. The TRL 5000 AX2 can wrap 120 big round bales per hour and handle round bales up to five and half feet in diameter. Controls are electric over hydraulic. A film sensor shuts the machine down when the roll is empty so no bales are missed. For more information, contact Denstedt at 888-856-6613 or visit





Master mud for a more precise seed depth Clean packer wheels | Spinning rotary mud scraper lets you drill seed at correct depth BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

BRANDON — Mud on a packer wheel destroys depth control and often pulls seeds out of the trench. It can clog up packers so badly that they start to skid over the seed row, making ruts and dragging cover soil from the seed trench. Both scenarios wreak havoc on the crop’s potential, and both can be traced to stationary, flat mud scrapers that wear quickly and ruin packer tires. Mark Devloo, inventor of the selfpropelled Devloo Roto Mud Scraper, thinks he has a better idea. Devloo farms at Somerset, Man., and is no stranger to muddy seeding conditions. “There’s a big need for a better mud scraper. Flat scrapers just don’t do the job they’re supposed to. Mud builds up and they cause too much trouble,” said Devloo. “Guys pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for an air drill, and they ignore the fact that their seeding depth is totally ruined because of mud on the packers.” He said stationary scrapers plug up enough to stop the wheels from turning. If the packer does keep turning, it becomes a big sticky rolling mud ball that pulls seed out of the trench. Both situations leave the farmer with a field that will fall far below its potential yield and force the tractor to burn extra fuel. Packers also serve as the depth control measure on many drills. More mud on the wheel increases the packer diameter and results in seeds placed shallower than desired or worse yet, on the surface. Clean packer wheels let the drill do a better job of seed placement, reduces maintenance costs and lessen drill drag in the soil. Devloo said mud on the wheel clearly makes a joke out of the term “precision farming.” His Roto Mud Scraper peels mud off by rotating itself. A steel cone spins on a shaft and its large diameter end runs close to the packer wheel’s surface. Mud coming around on the packer wheel causes the cone to spin, cutting off the mud.

“We tried all different kinds of scraper designs on our own farm, and nothing really worked the way we wanted until we hit upon this rotating cone idea,” he said. “Once we built a few of these and tried them in the field, we knew we were finally on to something big. The rotating cone has this mud-cutting edge around the circumference at the big end. If there’s no mud, they don’t spin. They just sit there and look pretty. The scraper doesn’t rely on outside power sources, he added. Devloo said the scrapers have five times more mud-contacting edge than fixed flat scrapers. Because it spins, the cutting edge is continually contacting and cutting off new mud coming up the wheel toward it. He recommended setting the cutting edge a quarter of an inch from the packer wheel’s surface to avoid tire wear. The system also allows for higher packer tire pressures. Devloo installed some of his first prototype rotary scrapers on his drill three years ago. Last year, he made a limited number of Roto Scrapers available for other farmers to try. They were field tested on a JD 730-1900, K-Hart, Seed Hawk, Seed Master, EzeeOn, JD 1820 with gang packers and a Harriston potato planter. Results were good and he went into production last year. The cones are laser cut from 1023 carbon steel and then powder coated. They are also available in stainless steel. The bearing is a 6203, which has been used in Case IH machines for decades. The scrapers come in two sizes: a seven inch diameter cone for packers up to four inches wide and a 9.5 inch cone for packers wider than four inches. A U-bolt is used to install the scrapers on most drills. On some drills, such as the Seed Hawk, it’s a matter of loosening a bolt, sliding the Roto Scraper into position and tightening the bolt again. Devloo said each scraper costs $79 to $84. For more information, contact Devloo at 888-744-2077 or visit www.

New owners upgrade safety measures JBS takes over | Company official says Brooks, Alta., plant is outperforming others in the industry BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

BANFF, Alta. — A new management style has arrived at the former XL Foods Lakeside beef plant in Brooks, Alta., since JBS took over last fall. The multinational company introduced new technology, staff training and upgraded food safety procedures to make Lakeside Packers the best performing plant in the JBS chain, said Bill Rupp, president of the JBS beef division. The plant was closed last year because of E. coli 0157:H7 contamination and Canada’s largest ever beef recall. JBS sent cattle to the United States for bacterial testing to see if there was a difference between Canadian and American cattle from a microbiological standpoint. “If anything, they outperformed the control group we compared them to in the U.S.,” he told the Alberta Beef Industry Conference held in Banff Feb. 20-22. “Since October, it has been our best performing plant from a food safety standpoint,” he said. “We have done tens of thousands of tests for E. coli in that plant since we started it up in late October and we have literally seen a handful of positive results where we have had to take that meat out of the market and send it to a cooker,” he said. “We believe this plant is going to do very good things for JBS and the Canadian industry going forward.” Besides taking a new approach to food safety, the plant will also be

It has been cleared for export sales, with the most recent shipments sent to Mexico. JBS-USA is based in Greely, Colorado, where pricing decisions are

made daily on information from around the world. “We believe our best competencies is our international presence,” Rupp said. The company started as a familyrun business in Brazil more than 50 years ago and eventually developed

international markets and a network of sales offices around the world. The company can process 40,000 head of cattle per day and supplies a number of branded beef programs. JBS believes working closely with food service and retailers is a way to promote brands and build customer

loyalty, even as North America faces five consecutive years of declining cattle supplies and flat consumer incomes. Rupp said the relationships within the beef industry are often acrimonious, but it is time to realize pork and poultry are the real competitors by being cheaper and plentiful. “As long as we have those views, it is going to very difficult for us to continue against the other proteins and have an overall business strategy that really targets the consumer and really understands what the consumer wants,” he said. Wholesale beef prices are soaring, and Rupp said retailers’ ability to pass along higher prices is one of the great challenges of this year. Retail beef prices are record high and struggle against pork and chicken. Beef averaged $4.77 per pound and chicken was $1.86 last year, said market analyst Steve Kay. Ground beef accounts for more than half of all beef sales and usually retails at $1.99 per lb. It is now $2.49$2.99 per lb. These record prices are coming at a time of 25 to 30 percent overcapacity in feedlots and packers in North America, which is a signal that it is time to make big changes or go out of business. Some facilities are likely to close by the end of this year. “These packing plants are $300 million assets and it is not easy to put the padlock on the gate and walk away,” Rupp said. “There are going to be some more tough things happen in our market.”


Forecast has U.S. feedlot owner preparing for drought Weather watch | Long-term weather forecasts show conflicting assessments for Western Canada this spring and summer BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

BANFF, Alta. — J.D. Alexander’s corn harvest was 60 percent of normal last year. It left him short of feed grain but also short of optimism if long-range weather forecasts for continued drought in the United States are correct. The wells at his Nebraska feedlot are drawn down, and he is looking to buy more feed than usual. “We are short of feed for what we would normally produce,” said the past president of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. “At the end of the season, our water was a little bit challenging for irrigating. When you are watering the crops,

your water levels lower and you have to adjust your wells,” he said. Sixty-seven percent of the U.S. is in a drought that extends from Texas to South Dakota and is moving toward the Rocky Mountains. “We have set the stage for a very dry season on the Plains,” said Art Douglas, climatologist and professor emeritus with Creighton University in Nebraska. Canada is in a better position, he told the Alberta Beef Industry Conference held in Banff Feb. 20-22. He bases his long-term forecasts on sea surface temperatures, historical data, wind patterns and other global events. Surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean are cooling, which indicates the return of La Nina and drought for

much of the U.S. “Anytime it is cold from Alaska to Hawaii to the equator, Western Canada tends to be wetter than normal,” he said. However, current forecasts from international weather and climate agencies are offering contradictory assessments of current conditions. “I don’t think the models know what is happening right now,” he said. Douglas believes the world is in a transition period and shifting toward La Nina conditions that favour drought for the American Plains. “This winter’s forecast going into the spring and summer does not have a strong confidence level that we would like to see at this time of year,” he said.

He thinks Western Canada is heading into a cool spring with adequate moisture levels because of extensive snow cover. Assessments of snow cover for the southern prairie provinces show it is holding 10 to 15 centimetres worth of moisture and as much as 20 cm in northern reaches of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. However, southern Alberta from Calgar y to L ethbr idge is dr ier because there is little snow. British Columbia and western Alberta can expect a hot summer while the central Prairies should experience near normal temperatures. Central Alberta could find itself dried out, but slightly more precipitation is forecast for Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Douglas is also warning of a cooler

climate over the next three decades based on analysis of weak sunspot activity. The world could experience conditions closer to what was recorded nearly 400 years ago during a period called the Little Ice Age. Sunspots were scarce between 1600 and 1715, and cold winters in England and France were the norm. Sunspots have an 11 year cycle, with the last maximum peak reached in 2001-02. Less activity means there is less energy from the sun to warm the oceans. “The sun is starting to act differently,” Douglas said. “The next sunspot maximum will be lower than the one we have now, and we will see the oceans cool with the potential for a cooler climate.”





Make more from less to increase beef supply Improve pregnancy rate | Cows are more profitable if they produce a calf on time every year CALGARY BUREAU

TAMPA, Fla. — Beef supplies are dropping to record low levels in North America, but that could be alleviated if more calves were born to the existing cow herd. “To produce more beef with a decreasing cow herd, we could improve reproductive rates,” said animal scientist Rick Funston from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. “If we increased reproductive rates in the United States by one percent, we are going to put 300,000 more calves in the system.” Funston told the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association meeting held in Tampa Feb. 5-9 that producers who want to get the most out of their cows must ensure they get pregnant every year and wean a good sized calf. Mike Smith of the University of Missouri’s animal science division said producers should ask three questions when attempting to achieve 85 percent pregnancy rates: • What is the pregnancy rate among heifers and mature cows for the first 60 to 70 days of the breeding season? Pregnancy rate is defined as the total number of females pregnant during the breeding season divided by the number of females exposed to breeding. • What proportion of the calves was born by day 21, 42 and 63 of the calving season? “It is well known in some of the highest production herds, approximately 61 percent of the calves are born by day 21, 85 percent by day 42 and 94 percent by day 63,” he said. “A reasonable goal would be to have 70 percent or more of your calves born by the end of the first 30 days of the calving season.” • What is the calving pattern among two- and three-year-old females? More attention should be paid to the management of first calf heifers and young cows if most of them are calving late or in the middle of the season. More than half the potential crop is lost when cows and heifers fail to get pregnant. One-third of calf deaths occur from birth to two weeks of age and 11 percent are lost during gestation. Four percent die before weaning. Smith said proper management can reduce those losses. Heat stress and drought are causing abortions in the United States this year. Other reasons for infertility include poor estrus detection, heifers that have not reached puberty, poor libido in bulls, low semen quality and poor artificial insemination techniques. “Reproduction is very unforgiving,” Smith said. “The good things you do management wise don’t compensate for the mistakes or problems you encounter.” Extending the season does not help when females fail to get pregnant in the allotted breeding period. The cows may not settle, or they fall behind the rest of the herd if they calve later. These later calving cows don’t have time to return to heat and conceive in the subsequent breeding season. A calving interval should be 365 days or less.

Gestation is 280 days, and the cow needs 20 days after calving for the uterus to reduce to normal size. It will have a short cycle, ovulate without showing heat and then come into full estrus seven to 10 days later and should be ready to conceive again. A productivity study showed heifers and steers born in the first 20 days of the calving season have increased weaning weight because they are older. Steers were heavier and tended to have a higher hot carcass weight and graded better. Heifers had a higher pre-breeding and pre-calving rate,

If we increased reproductive rates in the United States by one percent, we are going to put 300,000 more calves in the system. RICK FUNSTON ANIMAL SCIENTIST

an increased pregnancy rate and increased cycling. Cows are more profitable if they produce a calf on time every year.

They are more likely to produce two or more calves compared to the late calvers. Smith said the profit from two early calving cows is needed to cover the losses from one late calver. Adequate nutrition helps keep calving periods on time. Consider the cow’s body condition after calving. This is the fat cover or energy reserve. The score is from one to 10 with one being emaciated and 10 being too fat. Moderate is a score of five to six. The minimum score at calving is five. “As condition score increases, so

too does pregnancy rate,” Smith said. Thin cows take a long time to return to estrus while a cow with a score of five to eight can experience a shorter calving interval. Body condition score is not an absolute, but Funston said pregnancy rates will fall when cows are not getting proper nutrition and they will have lower weaning weights. The calf could be 100 pounds lighter at weaning, depending on how the cow was treated during pregnancy and lactation. Calves that were weaned early could be 20 pounds lighter at finishing.

Sudden death often result of puzzling bowel disease tridial enteritis, is most commonly seen in mature dairy cows and generally causes sudden death. It is a recently recognized ailment. Cows that are diagnosed early often have gut pain, are weak from blood loss or pass blood-stained manure. Veterinarians don’t know the exact cause of the disease, but one of the clostridial organisms — clostridium perfringens Type A — is often isolated from the site and the blood. Clostridial may ring a bell with many producers because it is the family of diseases that are targeted by the multivalent clostridial disease bacterins, which are the sevenw a y , e i g h t- w a y a n d n i n e - w a y



The bowel disease causes blood clots and the survival rate is low


emorrhagic bowel syndrome, also known as jejunal hemorrhagic syndrome and clos-

“blackleg” shots. However, Type A is not in any of the vaccines. Veterinarians may keep prescribing these vaccines, but I don’t think there is much cross protection to this type of clostridial. Still, it is a wise decision to vaccinate because many other types of clostridial diseases can crop up, such as tetanus, redwater, clostridial enteritis, malignant edema and of course the most widely known, blackleg. HBS was an almost unknown disease until 1999 when veterinarians started discovering cows that had died from huge blood clots, usually in portions of the small intestines. Those that lived longer would get

the blood clotting in the small intestines, where it would cause a blockage. The abdominal pain occurs w h e n t h e s ma l l i nt e s t i n e s a re stretched. Veterinarians will often find distended loops of bowel when doing a rectal exam and they also may find blood mixed with the manure. Corrective surgery can remove the blood clot if the diagnosis is made early enough, and in most cases a portion of the intestinal tract has to be removed. The surgery is complex and has a place only in top end dairy cattle or purebred beef cattle. Unfortunately, the prognosis is still low for survival, even with this surgery.

The disease is usually seen in top end dairy cows in their third or so lactation but has also been reported in heifers. It has also been diagnosed recently in beef cows and even a breeding bull. Most recently, it was found in a few nine-month-old male beef calves with the same sudden death and post mortem findings. With such a high fatality rate on valuable animals, it’s understandable why producers are concerned. It is called a syndrome now because high carbohydrate diets and the aspergillus mould are thought to cause it along with the Type A clostridial. The fungus aspergillus could create a lesion or ulcer-like condition in the intestine, causing it to bleed, or it could reduce the cow’s immune system, leading to the cascade of problems that results in hemorrhagic bowel syndrome. Cause still mystery Researchers have tried infecting cattle with only clostridium perfringens A and couldn’t cause the disease. They are now working to determine the other significant pieces to the puzzle. The disease is sporadic, despite having a high death rate. It shows up as a sudden death here and there, and if deaths occur on the same farm they are often months apart. Producers manage it by watching their cows’ stress level and providing good balanced rations. Veterinarians advise the multivalent clostridial vaccines. Broader protection is best because of the potential for cross protection similar to what occurs with some of the other clostridial perfringens-type organisms, such as Type B being cross protected from giving types C and D. It is difficult to know if current vaccinations reduce the disease because it has such a low incidence. This is especially the case because none of the clostridials on the market in Canada carry the clostridium perfringens Type A. We may break the chain in the future and hopefully reduce the incidence if a vaccine does come on the market and we can eliminate one of the potential causes of this disease complex. Producers should always have any sudden death necropsied by a veterinarian because clostridial causes can be determined most times. Be aware of new discoveries on the multifaceted cause of HBS and follow your veterinarian’s suggested vaccination plan for your herd. Veterinarians know the disease prevalence in your area and what combination of vaccines will give the best protection. Buying lots of vaccine is cheaper than losing a cow or calf to a type of clostridial disease. HBS is sporadic but other clostridial diseases can cause outbreaks in non-vaccinated animals. It is always best to prevent disease with vaccination than treat it. Nodulator® and XLerated Performance.

Treat heifers well to tap potential Energy and protein supplements essential BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

TAMPA, Fla. — Heifers need special treatment if they are expected to succeed later in life. They need to gain enough weight after weaning to attain puberty, conceive early, deliver a live calf unassisted and then rebreed. Their biggest challenge is to conceive quickly again, said Mike Smith of the University of Missouri’s animal science division. Producers tend to select replacements from older, heavier females at weaning. Avoid selecting those that received hormone implants in the first 30 days of life because these impair proper uterine development. “Age of puberty is not really affected, but pregnancy rate is,” he said. He also recommended that veterinarians check heifers four to six weeks before breeding. The vet can palpate the uterus and ovaries to assess development to sort those that could have trouble or have a high likelihood of conceiving early. Heifer weight is not an accurate way to assess puberty, he added. Measuring the pelvis is a measure of the skeleton and not puberty. It is useful to identify those with small pelvises so they can be removed. A large pelvis may mean a big female that will have a big calf. Administer prebreeding vaccines at this time because they will have enough immunity. As well, sideeffects will be worn off by breeding time. Heifers should be bred two to three weeks before the cows. “You should consider the use of synchronization and AI in your heifer

program,” Smith said. “It is easier to implement a synchronization program in your heifers from a management point of view and it allows you to get a large number of them pregnant on the first day of the breeding season.” Animal scientist Rick Funston from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln said nutrition has a profound effect on reproductive potential. Body condition is a useful indicator of nutritional status when combined with body weight. Females’ greatest needs are energy and protein supplemented with minerals and vitamins to optimize reproduction. “The consequences of nutrient restriction ought to be considered not only for the individual animal performance but all for offspring,” said Funston. Studies have found nutritional balance can affect the animals’ genetic potential. “Things happening that are being passed down by nutritional state, by physiological state and physical condition is impacting the expression of the DNA even before conception,” he said. “The decision to supplement or not during gestation impacts those cows and the steer calves.” Steers born to dams with poor nutrition during pregnancy gain less at the feedlot and have a lower quality grade. Heifers may be slower to gain weight and breed if their dams were not supplemented. Heifers should be 65 percent of their mature weight when they are bred. They do not need to gain more than 1.5 pounds per day during the development phase. They do not have to be placed in a feedlot to bring them along.

Chinese land buy fears calmed Benefits to rural communities | Real estate agent assures agents that investors are Canadian

Justin Yin has a simple message to rural Saskatchewan: don’t worry. Yin is a Saskatoon real estate agent who came to Canada from China nine years ago. He specializes in selling farmland to Canadian-Chinese investors who want to farm it themselves. “There is no need to panic,” he told a meeting of the Canadian Association of Farm Advisors in Regina Feb. 21. “We have no need to be concerned about land safety.” Rumours have flown since Chinese immigrants began buying land in Saskatchewan a few years ago. Some claim the buyers aren’t actually Canadians, which they must be under the province’s laws, while others suggest they are overpaying for the land and pushing prices out of reach for others. Yin, who bought his own land in 2008, said Chinese immigrants believe Saskatchewan farmland is undervalued and are willing to pay for an asset they could never have in their homeland. Under Chinese law, all land belongs to the country. “Everyone has a dream,” he said, and for many Chinese that dream is owning land. Yin said his clients are all Canadian citizens or permanent residents. “Many people call me and my first question is, are you Canadian?” More than 95 percent of his calls come from outside Saskatchewan, mainly from Toronto and Vancouver. More than 70 percent are cash deals. Yin said this lessens the risk for all involved, reduces debt loads and injects more cash flow into the province. He said his clients see this type of investment as more secure than the stock market. “More than half of them want to become farmers, especially those with 10 quarters or more,” Yin said. They need time to learn how to farm, which is why most of them lease their land for at least the first two years. Some at the meeting questioned how the new owners, who have no

That’s where the role of farm advisers comes in, he said. The investors are willing to pay someone to teach them step by step or to work alongside their tenants. Yin said current residents have to look at the medium to long-term benefits of new investors, including increasing the population in rural areas. Some investors and their families will move to the farms or nearby communities. “I can’t say that’s good or bad, but it’s fact,” he said. Many of these new farmers bring experience in business that could result in the development of new products. For example, Yin said some Chinese liquor that isn’t currently

available in Canada could be made and sold here. Among the concerns raised about Chinese farmers is that they would form alliances with companies in China and ship products directly there. “Why is it wrong to export directly to China when we already export so much?” Yin said. He also said these new farmers need real estate agents, lawyers, accounting and tax services, agronomic information and employees, all of which can come from revitalized smaller communities. “The main problem is language,” he said. While some will hire Chinesespeaking experts, Yin suggested only 30 percent hire Chinese lawyers,. Shawn Bourgeois of All Canadian Grain Inc., said it would perhaps make more sense for the new entrants to enter into joint ventures with exist-

ing farmers who have a lifetime of knowledge to offer. “Basically, you have venture capital” and a genuine interest in farming, he told Yin. However, there is far too much to learn in just two years of leasing to a local person and trying to gain an education in farming. “The end result seems a little difficult,” Bourgeois said. Another adviser said a change in farmland ownership is not new. A look at a rural municipal map over the years will show the shift from Anglo Saxon to Eastern European to, now, Chinese surnames, he said. The extra liquidity should be welcomed. As for land prices, Yin predicted that farmland prices will be nearly identical in all three prairie provinces by about 2030 as Saskatchewan land that is now considered undervalued appreciates.

One Earth Farms’ purchase of Beretta Farms’ branded meat part of vertical integration SASKATOON NEWSROOM

One Earth Farms Corp., a subsidiary of Sprott Resources, has bought Toronto-based Beretta Farms Inc., which sells hormone free and antibiotic free natural and organic branded meat products in Ontario and British Columbia.

The deal involved cash and shares in One Earth Farms, which has partnerships with prairie First Nations operating crop and livestock operations. The beef business focuses on raising cattle without the use of antibiotics or artificial hormones. “The Beretta Farms supply chain

and consumer brands perfectly complement the One Earth Farms source of beef from our more than 17,000 animal herd of top quality natural and organic cattle,” One Earth Farms chief executive officer Larry Ruud said in a news release. Beretta was started 20 years ago and sells its meat products through

selected national grocery chains, natural and organic retailers, direct home delivery and a specialty catering operation that provides meals to professional athletes and corporate clients, a Sprott Resources news release said. The transaction is the first instance of One Earth Farms’ strategy of verti-

cal integration and branded food products, which it expects will help it meet the needs of retailers and consumers while generating increased margins from an integrated supply chain. Sprott’s ownership share of One Earth Farms will be a little more than 54 percent upon completion of the deal.





Transitioning farm to next generation a long-term process MANAGING THE FARM


A good plan helps ensure a harmonious relationship among all family members


ast minute planning does not lead to successful farm succession. Transition planning must be approached as a structured, ongoing process that will likely span five to eight years from start to completion. Transitioning the family farm is one of the most important decisions a farm business owner will ever face. Most farm owners spend years working hard in their farm businesses to provide a livelihood as well as a rural lifestyle for their families

and children. The legacies that parents want to leave their children as they commence succession planning are typically to ensure the successful continuity of their farming operation, future financial security and farm lifestyles for their families and continued harmonious relationships among all family members. The process of succession planning is not an easy one, and just as every family is unique, succession plans have to be tailored to be appropriate to the requirements and dynamics of a particular family. Succession planning is often left unattended as farmers try to grapple with where to start on the seemingly overwhelming process. Alternately, pieces of the succession plan are completed, but the overall plan is never finalized or linked together to ensure that the transition will be complete, well managed and financially sound. This can result in inconsistencies or serious omissions in the overall plan. All this takes years, in many cases the better part of a decade. The retiring generation should

really commence the process at least three to five years before they want to retire to ensure the plans and structures are in place to transfer not only ownership of the farm business but also farm management and labour to the next generation. The major considerations that have to be addressed in a sound transition plan are: • Succession issues • Maximizing value • Asset preservation and wealth management • Retirement needs • Tax considerations Addressing these key areas requires a series of interviews and meetings with family members and gathering data about goals, business wellness and financial data. This initial data is then analyzed

and forms the basis for additional family meetings to determine the future direction of the farm and the transition to the next generation. The meetings will discuss successors, labour and management, profitability, ownership and tax structures and retirement plans. More detailed plans and implementation timetables are then developed within each of the key areas, which will provide the framework for all the critical steps to implement the transition, such as individuals responsible and completion dates. For example, an ownership transfer plan is one of the required plans that will be developed. It will address such details as: • An inventory and valuation of assets and liabilities.

• Tax implications and how to address them. • Outline insurance requirements. • Explain the treatment of nonfarming children and outline changes required for existing wills. Other encompassing plans would address key areas such as farm business, retirement and communication. A sound, process-or ientated approach to transition planning is required to ensure that all considerations and issues are identified and addressed appropriately. This planning is necessar y to ensure the continuity of your farm operation and the security of your family’s future. Denise Parker is a partner and regional agriculture leader for the B.C.

Weather, crop prices help Agrium set record profit Sales soar | Fourth quarter sales total $3.26 billion WINNIPEG (Reuters) — Agrium Inc. has reported a record profit of $354 million for the fourth quarter. The Canadian fertilizer company handily beat expectations because of higher demand for crop protection products and fertilizer from farmers. The share price initially rose after the report but then dived almost five percent after an analyst downgraded many of the leading names in the fertilizer sector, including Potash Corp. Agrium faces a proxy contest in April with its biggest shareholder, Jana Partners, which wants to split the company’s farm retail and wholesale fertilizer production divisions and take other steps to improve the company’s performance. Agrium said retail sales rose eight percent to $2 billion because of higher demand for pesticides and fertilizer after dry fall weather gave U.S. farmers a larger than normal application window before winter. The improved retail sales outweighed a seven percent drop in wholesale fertilizer sales, which were mainly the result of weak international demand for potash. A lack of potash exports to key markets China and India in last year’s second half hurt Agrium, Potash Corp. and Mosaic Co., which collectively make offshore sales through Canpotex Ltd. Both countries have since signed new supply contracts with Canpotex. Agrium said tight global grain and oilseed supplies are keeping crop prices high, offering farmers strong motivation to maximize crop production. The company has seen strong demand for seed purchases

leading up to the spring planting season. Global demand for nitrogen looks likely to increase two to three percent this year, it said, while North American nitrogen demand should be flat to two percent higher. Global demand for potash looks strong for the first half of 2013, with China committed to Canpotex purchases during the period, Agrium said. Total potash shipments on a global basis should reach 55 to 57 million tonnes, up from 52 million tonnes last year, the company said. Net earnings for the fourth quarter jumped to $354 million, or $2.34 per share, from $193 million, or $1.20 per share a year ago. Adjusted for one time items, earnings were $326 million, or $2.16 per share. Sales rose three percent to $3.26 billion. Analysts on average expected Agrium to earn $2 a share on sales of $3.2 billion, according to Thomson Reuters. Earnings per share topped Agrium’s own guidance from Jan. 24 of slightly more than $2 a share for the quarter. The company’s full-year 2012 earnings of $1.5 billion matched a record, despite a disappointing third quarter that gave Jana fodder to build its case for change. Agrium is the world’s third-largest nitrogen producer, a significant miner of potash from Western Canada and a producer of phosphate. Rival nitrogen producer CF Industries also posted record-high fourth quarter profit last week, but its nitrogen fertilizer sales slumped in the period and its stock fell.
