Input worries spring up Short season, extra costs | Diesel supply may be a problem with a tight seeding window WINNIPEG BUREAU, SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Snowstorms and continuing cold temperatures are creating a potential disaster for prairie farmers if any of the systems they rely upon break down during seeding. “Can the infrastructure handle

this compressed seeding?” worried Dan Mazier, who farms near Justice, Man. “How do you get that much energy out to the field at once, let alone the fertilizer?” Farmers will need a steady flow of diesel fuel, fertilizer and other inputs when they are finally able to

get the big iron moving. The short growing season means there will be no room for error. That’s why some farmers are anxious about input supplies especially diesel fuel, which is becoming a chronic problem on the Prairies. Western Canada is normally considered to be energy

rich, but it actually has a deficit in diesel fuel production. “It is a big concern and it is probably going to be a concern for us at least for the short and medium terms,” energy market analyst Jason Parent of the Kent Group said during the Canada Grains Council’s annual meeting.

Yields suffer if herbicide application exceeds recommended rates BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Farmers are increasingly spraying their canola crops at above label rates, which is causing significant yield loss, says Monsanto Canada. Company research trials conducted over a two-year period on 53 sites shows farmers are losing an average of three bushels per acre by over-spraying, costing them $40 per acre at today’s prices. “I think that’s the piece that people have not understood, is that there is risk associated with this practice,” said Dave Kelner, canola technical lead with Monsanto Canada. A survey of 1,700 farmers conducted by Stratus Agri-Marketing Inc. on behalf of Monsanto found that 45 percent of farmers sprayed above label rates in 2012, up eight percentage points from the 2011 results.

Overspraying adds costs, cuts yields






Input worries spring up “Supply of diesel in Western Canada hasn’t kept up with the increase in demand in recent years.” Parent said Western Canada had a diesel production surplus 10 years ago but now imports 40,000 barrels per day. The problem is that the prairie pipeline network is designed for diesel to flow out of the West rather than to flow in. It creates a situation in which a pipeline breach or a refinery problem can immediately create a fuel shortage in much of the Prairies, as happened during the late stages of a recent harvest. Most farmers don’t have enough on-farm storage to keep running through seeding or harvest without resupply, so in a year of tight seeding windows, the potential for problems becomes extreme. Independent fuel dealer Chris Adair of Rack Petroleum in Biggar, Sask., said he doesn’t think there will be a problem as long as no part of the system breaks. “This spring is a bit delayed due to all the snow out there, but the oilfields are breaking up for the season, the ice roads are going down, so supplies shouldn’t be fully taxed,” said Adair. “Inventories right now are pretty good.” However, that is true only if supplies keep flowing. A pipeline fire that caused a major disruption in November 2011 left the Prairies short. “We got through that OK, but it was at the end of harvest. A month earlier and it might have been a different story,” said Adair. It makes sense for producers to store 75 percent of their estimated fuel needs on the farm because it gives them a buffer against crisis, he added.

Mazier said many farmers don’t realize they probably need more fuel storage. Having a week’s worth of supply makes sense, but most farmers have far less than that. The overreliance on one fuel is also worrisome. Almost everything runs on diesel, which is in short supply. That’s why it might make sense to adapt some farm machinery to natural gas, which is being done in other areas. Mazier said Western Canada has a surplus of natural gas, with pipelines in many places, and handling the fuel wouldn’t be difficult for local fuel suppliers. “That would be a whole different scenario,” said Mazier, who has a pipeline running through the middle of his own rural municipality. “We have natural gas pipelines all over the place.” Parent said the diesel deficit should abate within a few years. Massive refinery investment in Asia is going to make cheap diesel available to coastal British Columbia, which means the region probably won’t consume much prairie diesel in the future. As well, expanding the pipeline from Alberta to Vancouver will take pressure off the rest of the prairie pipeline system and allow it to better handle all demands. A major, three-phase diesel fuel production expansion is underway at Alberta’s North West Redwater Partnership, which Parent said should break the bottleneck. “It’s going to offset the increase in demand if all three phases come online,” said Parent. “Even if two phases come on line, (the situation will mostly be solved).” However, the first phase won’t be completed until 2014, so there’s at least one year of risk ahead.

Saskatchewan government presents stewardship award BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

The Saskatchewan government has recognized the Lower Souris Watershed Committee for its efforts to protect water resources in the southeastern part of the province. The group received the 2013 Council of the Federation-Excellence in Water Stewardship Award last week, which is presented to an organization in each province and territory. The Lower Souris committee was recognized for strong leadership and innovation in implementing its source water protection plan. It was the first in the province to develop an agri-environmental group plan focused on source water protection. That work led to investments of $2.5 million in beneficial management practices within the watershed and served as a model for 27 additional group plans. Watershed co-ordinator Sheldon Kyle estimated 70 percent of the agricultural producers in the watershed area have participated in the group plan. The area includes the Pipestone Creek, Four Creeks and Antler Creek

areas and the communities of Kipling, Moosomin, Redvers, Carnduff and Gainsborough. Kyle said the group plan began after a green cover program proved successful. It decided to see if it could deliver environmental farm plans through a concentrated effort of producers. “We did a scan of the area and of the producers and said, ‘what are the BMPs that we think will have the largest environmental impact,’ ” he said. “It came up that anything related to ground water or surface water quality were the BMPs that people wanted to address as a group.” Kyle said producers like the group aspect because they don’t have to go through individual farm plans. They can sit down with watershed staff, complete a self-assessment and then apply for funding for specific projects. He said last week’s Growing Forward 2 programming announcement included changes to the BMPs that will be funded for the next five years. GPS guidance systems, portable windbreaks and some cross fencing have been eliminated. Precision farming BMPs will also be eligible.

Overspraying proves costly The survey also found that 30 percent of farmers sprayed at above label rates after the six-leaf stage of crop development, up four percentage points from the 2011 survey. Ke l n e r s a i d f a r m e r s w h o a re increasingly confronted by tough-tocontrol weeds such as dandelion, foxtail barley and wild buckwheat feel it is necessary to use more than the label rate of Roundup, which is either two applications of 0.33 litres per acre or one application of 0.5 litres per acre applied at the zero to six-leaf stage of development. The new Monsanto research shows the rewards of a cleaner field during the year of application: reduced dockage at harvest and fewer weeds the following year, are more than offset by the yield penalty, which was as high as one-third of the crop in some trials. Off-label herbicide application is increasing partly because of lower glyphosate prices. Roundup WeatherMAX, which retailed for $14 per litre in 2007, is selling for half that price today. Kelner said the company is publicizing the results so growers can get the most out of Monsanto’s existing seed technology. He said the company’s hybrid performance has come a long way in the last five or six years, and it wants growers to reap the full benefits of the Roundup system. “It is competitive with other systems on the market, but that’s not always realized because of various reasons, and one of them, I think, is this situation that’s happening with spraying off-label and hurting the crop,” said Kelner. Dale Leftwich, a grower from Esterhazy, Sask., and director of the Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission, thinks there may be an ulterior motive at work. Leftwich suspects Monsanto is attempting to build a case that overspraying is causing yield damage to boost interest in a new trait it has invested a lot of time and money developing. Monsanto received Canadian regulatory approval last summer for TruFlex Roundup Ready canola, a new trait that allows farmers to apply higher rates of herbicide in a wider window of application. The trait is expected to be commercialized next year. Leftwich doesn’t doubt farmers are guilty of over-spraying when weeds are tough to control or out of control. However, he is curious about how often the 45 percent of farmers in the survey are spraying at above label rates. Is it all the time or only occasionally? Is it on one canola field or every field? Leftwich said there is a perception among farmers that Bayer CropScience’s LibertyLink varieties yield better than Roundup Ready canola. He acknowledged it is plausible that the yield drag associated with overspraying glyphosate could be leading growers to that conclusion. Kelner said Monsanto’s first generation herbicide tolerance gene is tolerant to the chemical only within certain parameters. The resistance breaks down once the prescribed application levels are exceeded, and the plant becomes as susceptible to the chemical as a weed. Symptoms of plant damage are similar to what they are in weeds: yellowing, flower bleach and improper seed set.

Slow melt raises flooding fears Dirty snow melts faster | A continual dusting of fresh snow reduces solar heating and delays melt BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Each little dusting of snow is prolonging winter, even if it isn’t adding much to the snow pack. That’s because fresh white snow reflects more of the sun’s radiation back up to the atmosphere than it retains. This keeps the snow cold and prevents melting. The reverse effect is why dirty snow along a grid road or in a stubble field melts faster. It also means that when that dirty snow starts to go, it’s going to go fast. John Pomeroy, director of the University of Saskatchewan’s Centre for Hydrology and Canada research chair in water resources and climate change, said the reason is snow albedo, or its reflectance. “Fresh snow will have a reflectance of about .9, or .92, which means only 10 percent or less of its solar radiation energy is able to enter the snow pack and roughly 90 percent or 92 percent is reflected back up into the atmosphere,” he said. Snow that has collected impurities over the winter such as dust and dirt, or what the experts call snirt, is darker and wetter when the top layer of fresh snow melts and exposes the dirt. The albedo drops and increases the amount of solar energy that the snow can absorb, Pomeroy said. If it drops from .9 to .8, the capacity to absorb is doubled. A drop to .7

triples the absorption. Shallow snow is often dirtier and therefore absorbs more heat. Fields with exposed stubble also absorb more heat. “This year it’s really deep, it’s really clean and it’s very fresh,” Pomeroy said of the snow pack. This is keeping the albedo high and prolonging the winter. He wouldn’t be worried if it were still March, but it’s April and the sun is bound to do its job soon. “Whenever it does warm up on the Prairies, such that the albedo

decays and melt can begin, we’re going to be in a very high sun period with long days and high solar angles,” he said. The later the melt starts, the faster it will go. Large-scale flooding on the Prairies is almost always due to snow melt and there is a lot of it to melt this year. However, Pomeroy said there was a lot more snow in the much-referenced 1974 flood year. “The three things that you need to generate flooding are very wet soils, lower storage capacity in wetlands

While some areas in Alberta have started applying anhydrous fertilizer, like Peter Waldner from the MacMillan Colony near Cayley, Alta., other parts of the Prairies further east and north may be waiting for some time to get into fields, depending on how quickly the snow melts. | MIKE STURK PHOTO

… and high snow pack and late melt,” he said. It was reasonably dry last fall in most areas and wetland storage capacity will be variable, depending on the area. One area of uncertainty is how much water will infiltrate the frozen ground. This depends on moisture content in the fall and the amount of cracking in the soil. Pomeroy experimented in the late 1980s and early 1990s with artificial soil cracking using subsoilers and rippers. Snow fences erected near Kerrobert, Sask., and Kindersley, Sask., were designed to catch 1.5 metres of snow across a field. “Everything infiltrated into the soil,” he said, and some farmers adopted the practice to catch spring melt and runoff. It was proposed as a drought fighting measure, but can also be used to fight floods. “The big unknown for this year is the natural cracking that has occurred because of minimum tillage,” Pomeroy said. “We haven’t studied it very well and it should to some degree increase that storage in the soils. It seems to take about 10 years after the tillage ends for these cracks to fully develop.” He said the cracks were likely naturally part of the soil before humans tilled it and have returned as minimum and zero till farming systems were adopted. “It will be interesting to see the role they play,” he said. “It might save us.”






Ritz vows COOL retaliation

Canadian, U.S. producers push for compliance

Gerry Ritz on mission | Proposed amendments will make market access to the U.S. worse, he says STORIES BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz took his crusade against U.S. country-of-origin labelling rules to Washington and Mexico City last week, vowing sharp retaliation if they are not changed. He told reporters that he used an April 9 meeting with U.S. agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack to argue that proposed amendments to COOL in reaction to a World Trade Organization ruling actually make it worse. He made the same argument to members of Congress and the Senate who deal with agricultural issues. In response to a challenge from Canada and Mexico, a WTO panel determined that the rules were disguised protectionism that violate U.S. obligations under trade agreements. The requirement that products be labelled if they contain meat from animals originating in Canada led to a sharp drop in export of feeder and slaughter cattle and slaughter hogs to U.S. feedlots and slaughter plants. WTO rules allow Canadian retaliation if the U.S. does not make acceptable changes by May 23, although tariffs likely would not be applied for a year or more to allow WTO appeals to run their course. “Our industry, the beef and pork sector, have identified some $1 billion a year that has gone missing from their bottom line since the countryof-origin labelling has been made mandatory in 2008,” Ritz said. If the Americans do not move, “I’m here to tell you, as a country we are more than prepared to apply retaliatory measures to recoup that billion dollars.” He said tariffs could go beyond beef and pork imports from the

In Mexico, agriculture minister Enrique Martinez y Martinez told Ritz that he continues to work with Canada in opposing COOL and planning retaliation. “Both our countries challenged COOL before the WTO and we will continue to work collaboratively together on COOL every step of the way,” Ritz told a telephone news conference April 11. “We also exchanged our strategies on moving forward if the United States does not comply with its WTO obligations by May 23.” However, Ritz said after the lobbying trip that he did not see any indication Washington is prepared to move in the next five weeks. “I did not get a warm, fuzzy feeling on movement forward,” he said. “They are stuck in the situation that they have made for themselves. At the end of the day, we’re certainly here to help them pass that political hurdle and if it takes retaliatory

actions to make that happen, so be it.” Representatives of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association were in Washington to support Ritz, meeting with U.S. cattle and beef industry representatives also opposed to COOL. Late in the week, both the CCA and the Canadian Pork Council filed formal briefs in Washington objecting that the earlier rule changes will make access to the U.S. more difficult rather than less. Ritz said the Canadian and American cattle industries are important allies. “We’re hopeful that the pressure being brought to bear by both Canadian industry, the Canadian government and of course, American industry and even the retail sector in the U.S., will start to convince them that this is wrong-headed action, that they must expand their thought process to really identify and address the spirit and the ruling of the WTO panel.”

Livestock producers on both sides of the Canada-United States border are urging the American government to mend its ways and change country-of-origin labelling rules. In briefs filed with the U.S Department of Agriculture by the April 11 deadline for comment, the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association, Canadian Pork Council and the U.S. National Pork Producers’ Council called on the American government to comply with World Trade Organization demands for COOL changes. If the USDA does not comply by May 23, Canada and Mexico can announce retaliatory tariffs against U.S. imports, although their implementation could be a year or more away. Canadian agriculture minister Gerry Ritz says based on industry estimates of COOL-related losses, Canadian retaliation could be worth $1 billion annually. The threat spurred the NPPC to action with a plea for a government change of heart. “The United States must avoid retaliation from Canada and Mexico,” NPPC president Randy Spronk said in a news release issued April 11 after the group filed its formal comments. “The United States should make sure our meat labelling law complies with our international trade obligations. Retaliatory tariffs on pork by Canada or Mexico would be financially devastating to U.S. pork producers.” The Canadian pork industry estimates loss of sales or price depression because of COOL has cost pro-

ducers $500 million annually since 2008. The CCA estimates the cost to its industry at $639 million annually, or $25 to $40 per head. The cattle producer lobby called on the USDA to withdraw changes it proposed March 12 as its answer to WTO calls for amendments to the rules. The Canadian industry insists the proposed changes would make the situation worse and increase costs to Canada. It objected that the administration did not provide analysis to justify its argument that the rules it proposed would meet WTO objections. All three livestock groups urged the U.S. last week to change the mandatory requirement for labelling of product containing meat from animals born or raised in a foreign country. Instead, all meat processed in a U.S. plant should be considered American product, they said. In its comments, the Canadian Pork Council argued that beyond retaliation, the American industry and consumers would pay a price. “The proposed regulatory rule will exacerbate the problem for Canadian exporters while reducing the competitiveness of the U.S. meat industry due to the lack of adequate supply to maintain throughput and competitive costs” said the CPC statement. “This will result in a significant loss of American jobs from the closure of livestock processing facilities and will almost certainly raise meat costs to American consumers.”

Report citing ag for antibiotic misuse irks animal health officials BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Jean Szkotnicki speaks with tongue only partially in cheek when she wonders how the medical community would react if those in agriculture made recommendations on health care. However, recommendations on agricultural use of antibiotics were among many made by the Ontario Medical Association in a March report on antimicrobial resistance and its threat to human health. Szkotnicki, president of the Canadian Animal Health Institute, said the bulk of the OMA report appropriately dealt with human issues. As for the rest, “I wish they had collaborated relative to comments on the agricultural side.” Bacteria resistant to antibiotics pose a threat to human health if there

are no drugs effective against them. Agricultural use of antibiotics is thought by some to contribute to development of resistant bacteria. Szkotnicki said agricultural use of antimicrobials is a factor in the issue of increased resistance, although use in human treatment is the biggest cause. “That’s not to say that agriculture doesn’t have some contribution and I think there’s a lot of evidence to show that agriculture has taken it very seriously.” She pointed to quality assurance programs that include appropriate antimicrobial use, prudent use guidelines issued by the veterinary medical association and research efforts aimed at the livestock industries. The OMA report targeted use of antimicrobials in livestock feed to prevent illness and promote growth

as a practice that should be stopped. However, Szkotnicki said growth promotion claims on some product labels might be the result of outdated information on drugs, particularly ionophores, which have been in livestock use for decades. “That claim would be different in today’s environment,” she said. “Our industry is working with Health Canada in developing a process to remove the growth promotion claims from products where there are concerns about use of a product in agriculture and its contribution to resistance.” Agriculture Canada ruminant microbiologist Tim McAllister has studied the question of growth promotion from antibiotics. His research has investigated two drugs in only a small number of cattle, but it showed no growth promoting effects. The OMA also recommended that

antibiotics be provided only with a veterinary prescription. Szkotnicki said this is already the practice in Quebec and may be something for others to consider. However, she said that would not necessarily result in more prudent use. “I would have to say farmers appear to be using these drugs prudently and in a proper way when you look at the whole issue of … managing residues.” Dr. Ian Goodbrand, a veterinarian who operates Border Veterinary Services in Provost, Alta., said prescriptions keep antimicrobial use at a prudent level in the industry. The veterinary act dictates that prescription drugs be sold only in a veterinary-client-patient relationship. Goodbrand works primarily with cattle and said there is little use of antimicrobials in cattle feed.

Volunteer canola expected to hit fields hard Seeds lost to strong winds | Pre-emergence burnoff key to getting ahead of the problem for producers BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Farmers throughout much of the Prairies are preparing to do battle with a yellow menace this year. Canola volunteers are expected to be out in full force once spring finally arrives due to extreme wind that tossed around swaths and caused extensive pod shattering during last year’s harvest. Many communities in east-central Alberta and west-central Saskatchewan were hit by wind gusts of up to 100 km-h last September. Other regions of the Prairies experienced sustained winds of 50 to 80 km-h that resulted in canola seed landing in the field instead of the combine hopper. The worst damage occurred in Saskatchewan, where half of the province’s canola crop was sitting in swaths when the winds swept up. “Shattering losses were significant all the way from Meadow Lake to north of Yorkton and even down towards Regina,” said Grant McLean, cropping specialist with Saskatchewan Agriculture. Dale Leftwich, director of the Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission, said canola is typically seeded at four to five pounds of seed per acre. One bushel of canola contains 50 lb. of seed. “If you lost two bushels of canola, you have seeded enough for 20 years of canola,” he said. “It’s going to be a huge problem and it’s going to have to take some careful consideration in terms of how to deal with it.” Troy Prosofsky, a DeKalb agronomist for northwestern Saskatchewan, said many farmers lost five bu. an acre or more to the strong winds. “In those instances, they would have up to 250 lb. of canola on an acre. Will all of those germinate? No they won’t. But there will be a large number of them,” he said. That means growers need to be extra-vigilant with their pre-emergence burnoff activity this spring. Elaine Bellamy, who farms near Rosebud, Alta., plans to do just that. Her canola fields produced half of the

Volunteer canola is likely to challenge producers in Saskatchewan who were hit by hard winds after swathing last year. | FILE PHOTO usual 50 to 70 bu. per acre last year due to a combination of sclerotinia and wind damage. “We have a strong pre-burn program that we do and I don’t anticipate (volunteers) being a problem,” she said. Bellamy plans to use a pre-burn with a residual herbicide on her cereal fields, to treat all cereal seed with a high quality fungicide and to plant at high seeding rates. Clark Brenzil, provincial weed specialist with Saskatchewan Agriculture, has a few tips for growers: do their pre-seed herbicide work as soon as possible, use tank-mix herbicide combinations with modes of action to which the canola is susceptible and increase water rates on their

sprayers to ensure complete coverage. He said the good thing about all the volunteer canola is that there will be inner-species competition. “They’re not going to be as vigorous on the whole as the individuals that would be from lower populations,” he said. The bad news is that the volunteers will be so plentiful in some areas that they will provide a thick curtain that the crop will have to fight through in the spring. “The challenge it provides for management is to be able to hit each and every one of those small seedlings that are there,” said Brenzil. Research from the University of Saskatchewan shows producers can

achieve a significant yield bump by spraying well before seeding rather than just before seeding. Following this advice with wheat provided a four bu. per acre yield increase, which worked out to a 10 percent hike. “Your priority on days when you can spray should be spraying rather than seeding,” said Brenzil. That is especially true in a year like this one when canola volunteers are expected to be so plentiful. “When you have that high density, it’s more important to control them earlier in their life stage than letting them sit there and suck up resources,” he said. Tank mixes will be important this spring because nobody knows exact-

ly what they’re dealing with. A neighbour’s Roundup Ready canola may be sitting in what was a field of LibertyLink canola. Fields planted to cereal crops could be sprayed with a mixture of glyphosate and a Group 4 phenoxy herbicide such as 2,4-D or MCPA. Those seeded to pulses or canola should be treated with a combination of glyphosate and a Group 14 herbicide. Growers using carfentrazone products such as Aim, CleanStart, Authority Charge and BlackHawk need to use high rates to control volunteer canola because they have to assume the glyphosate will have no effect on the canola plants. Carfentrazone doesn’t provide residual control. Saflufenacil, which is the ingredient in BASF’s Heat, is another Group 14 herbicide that may give growers another week of control at high rates because it does have a residual property. It can be used ahead of peas, lentils, wheat, chickpea, oats, barley and corn. Producers should also move to the higher end of the recommended application water rates this spring. “In order to make contact with each and every one of those plants, they have to maybe keep their water volumes way higher than what they have been,” said Brenzil. That is especially true when using Group 14 herbicides, which are contact products that only kill what they’re directly sprayed on. Prosofsky said there is a good chance growers will face a late flush of canola volunteers despite their spring control efforts. “Multiple applications may be required to really control the volunteer canola plants,” he said. Leftwich said farmers are going to be spending more than they usually do on herbicides this year. However, they could be paying an even bigger price if they can’t get out in their fields to spray because of wind, rain or temperature. “If you end up being late in your spraying and the volunteers are choking our your crop, you can lose a huge amount of money in a very short period of time,” he said.


Local food advocate wants national strategy to emphasize security, sustainability BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

TORONTO — The way Ontario farmer Don Mills sees it, any attempt to create a national food strategy must begin with an emphasis on food security and industry environmental sustainability. The way Conference Board of Canada vice-president Michael Bloom describes it, industry prosperity is the first item in the board’s effort to create a strategy, from which flow other benefits of a strong sector. The dueling food strategy visions were on display last week at the conference board’s Canadian Food Summit in Toronto, which featured a


variety of industry and government speakers followed by a session on household food security at the end. Mills, president of Local Food Plus and a former National Farmers Union board member who farms near London, Ont., saw symbolism in the agenda. “It is concerning that a lot of the

discussion has been on prosperity and exports and then once we’ve figured that out, we’ll discuss bringing in food security and the environment,” he said. He expressed similar sentiments while addressing an earlier meeting of Food Secure Canada, which is discussing its own food strategy proposal: “ This food summit is an industry-driven process, but let’s not mistake that for one that serves us all.” The FSC proposal imagines a “food democracy” system that emphasizes national food sovereignty, local food, food security for low income households, sustainability and a voice for non-industry communities that are

dependent on and affected by the food system. “People must have a say in how their food is produced and where it comes from and they must have an active role in realizing the principles of food sovereignty,” says the FSC plan, which comes with few details about how it would work and how farmers would be affected. Imagining a national food strategy has become a cottage industry in Canada in recent years. The Canadian Federation of Agriculture has committed significant time and resources to develop its version of a national strategy. It is a work in progress. The Canadian Agri-Food Policy

Institute has had its own researchbased process with emphasis on food linked to health-care policy. As well, the conference board launched its process two years ago, which has included research papers, consultations and two national conferences. It will culminate with the unveiling of a final document next March. All major parties supported a national food strategy during the last federal election campaign, although there has been no political movement. Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz says he is waiting to see the results of the various initiatives underway, but they remain too vague to form the basis of policy.

U.S. winter wheat growers assess recent frost damage Temperatures below -7 C | Damage won’t be known until the weather warms up BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A struggling U.S. winter wheat crop suffered what could be a serious blow last week when temperatures dropped below freezing for long stretches twice in 48 hours in large portions of the southern plains. “There’s a pretty widespread area where plants look really bad right now because of that freeze event,” said Justin Gilpin, chief executive officer of the Kansas Wheat Commission. The damage is most severe in places like western Kansas where the crop was already stressed due to a prolonged winter drought. Gilpin said crops were frozen in Kansas, eastern Colorado, Oklahoma and the Texas panhandle by temperatures that dropped below -7 C in some areas. “Certainly we lost some wheat and lost bushels,” he said.

Although it is early to be attaching a number to the combined drought and freeze damage, Gilpin wouldn’t be surprised if the U.S. hard red winter wheat crop ends up 25 percent smaller than last year’s 27.3 million tonne harvest. “We’re certainly looking at production down year-on-year,” he said. The USDA said that as of April 14 the Kansas winter wheat crop was 33 percent poor to very poor, 37 percent fair and 30 percent good to excellent. The week before the poor to very poor percentage was 31, fair was 38 and good to excellent was 31. The Oklahoma poor to very poor rating rose to 37 percent from 33 percent the week before. Wheat has a legendary ability to recover from setbacks but the recent freeze event appears to have “used up the ninth life,” said Gilpin.

The crop had recently emerged from dormancy when the freeze event started on April 9. Most of the crop hadn’t reached the jointing stage of development yet but a lot of the wheat fields in western Kansas, which is home to about half of the state’s wheat, were already reeling from drought stress. “We’re anticipating a higher percent of abandonment in those areas. Crop adjusters are going to be busy heading out to those areas this week trying to get a handle on it.” He spoke to a grower from southwestern Kansas who predicts he will be harvesting about one-quarter of the wheat that he planted. Gilpin said those kinds of stories are going to be commonplace. Kansas wheat gained about 50 cents a bushel last week primarily due to the freeze. But the market doesn’t appear to be overly excited by the freeze damage, possibly

because the extent of it is still unknown. “The market is really focused on corn and soybeans right now,” said Gilpin. “With the U.S. having a somewhat comfortable carryout position in wheat already, maybe the market is thinking (it) can absorb the lower production in the U.S.” The USDA delivers its first winter wheat production forecast on May 10. That number should take the freeze damage into account. In the meantime, growers will be monitoring their crops. The full extent of the damage won’t be known until the weather heats up and the plants start growing again. “(Then) we’ll find exactly how many of those plants really are dead,” said Gilpin. “It’s kind of depressing. I’d rather be doing a story about how good the conditions look. Maybe next year.”

The late spring could take a toll on yields, but it is unlikely to dramatically disrupt crop plans, says a grain industry analyst. “I don’t see it making a big difference crop mix wise,” said John Duvenaud, an analyst with Wild Oats Grain Market Advisory. “Really, how much can you do? Most farmers have a rotation that they’re going to follow anyways. And what crop is good for late seeding? Nothing really.” Grant McLean, cropping management specialist with Saskatchewan Agriculture, thinks there could be some switching out of longer season crops like corn and soybeans. “With the changes in the way markets are going, individuals have been quite excited about some of these newer crops,” he said. “They may be starting to rethink some of those acres.” Corn and soybeans need soil temperatures of at least 10 C to germinate, while most cereals, pulses and canola will germinate at 3-5 C. As a result, McLean could see farmers moving away from some of the high heat unit crops into wheat, which is often the go-to crop when seeding is delayed because of its resiliency. However, growers may want to reconsider the recent trend toward growing wheat for bushels rather than quality because some of the general purpose varieties require a longer growing season, said McLean. Dale Leftwich, a grower from Esterhazy, Sask., believes last minute seeding changes could be happening across the Prairies. He is at least two weeks behind where he normally is at this time of the year. He still had 60 centimetres of snow in his backyard as of late last week. “If this continues for much longer, people are going to start thinking about seeding something other than what they originally intended,” he said. Leftwich is contemplating switching some of his acres into shorter season crops like barley and oats. Duvenaud has done that in the past and it didn’t make much of a difference. “As far as I know, there’s no crop that’s a panacea here that you can seed it late and you know you’re going to get a good crop worth money,” he said. Duvenaud agreed with McLean that corn may lose ground to a crop like wheat, but he doesn’t anticipate any reduction in soybean acres. There are differing opinions on how big of a seeding delay farmers are facing. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE






Feedgrain futures weak, cash prices strong: analyst

Really, how much can you do? Most farmers have a rotation that they’re going to follow anyways. And what crop is good for late seeding? Nothing, really.

USDA report causes ripples | Cash market trading on old crop stocks BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU


Feedgrain futures charts look ugly, but cash prices are strong. That’s the reality facing farmers with feedgrains in store. Cash market barley prices on the Prairies are strong, despite a nearly $1 per bushel slump in corn prices. “We just don’t see much selling,” said Greg Hagel of feedgrain broker Quality Grain in Calgary. “I guess farmers are somewhat bullish, and I think they’re somewhat right.” U.S. corn and wheat futures have taken a terrible beating in the past three weeks, falling sharply after a U.S. Department of Agriculture stocks report found more corn in store than any mainstream analyst expected, suggesting that demand was slumping. A USDA supply and demand report last week didn’t challenge that implication. However, cash market prices in the United States and Western Canada remain strong, with basis levels strengthening as the futures market weakens. That has created an unusual situation in which the futures markets are being traded according to official USDA numbers but the cash market is being traded according to farmer and commercial user assumptions about the true nature of old crop stocks. “Even when it dropped 80 cents in two weeks, we haven’t seen a penny change in the price of cash corn in the U.S.,” said Derek Squair, manager of Agri Trend Marketing. “Feed barley isn’t any different. Feed barley hasn’t changed a bit. It’s getting tighter.” Hagel thinks farmers who still have barley in store will be able to sell it all the way into summer at good prices. That’s now about $6 per bushel picked up in the Calgary area, which is close to peak prices

» CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE Some grain industry analysts say growers are already two to three weeks behind schedule, but McLean thinks it’s more like a week behind normal. He remains optimistic about crop prospects. “We still do the majority of our seeding in the month of May,” he said. Duvenaud believes the cool weather is already taking its toll on yield prospects. “The runoff hasn’t even started yet. It’s going to be a late seeding, no two ways about it,” he said. “If you are a conscientious yield projector, you would already be ratcheting them down.” But when asked how much he was reducing yields in his supply and demand estimates, Duvenaud offered a more moderate take on the situation. “I’m not adjusting any S & Ds down. Not yet. It’s still April. Who knows what’s going to happen.” McLean has spoken to one large farm operator who said he will be cutting back on fertilizer this spring if he is late getting into the fields because he doesn’t want to waste money on what could be a low-yielding crop. While there is still plenty of uncertainty surrounding spring seeding, one thing is for sure: farmers are becoming mighty antsy. “People would like to be doing something. Farmers tend to be physical people. They want to be doing stuff and the weather isn’t allowing that to happen,” said McLean.

this winter of $6.10. “It’s a little harder to get now, but the guys are hanging tough and getting it,” said Hagel. “You make a lot of phone calls and you get a lot of ‘no’s’. They’re out of barley.” Hagel said farmers still have a lot of quality wheat in store, but won’t move it because they think prices are too low. Many analysts think the futures sell-off has been caused by outside investment money that is following USDA numbers and factors far beyond crop market commercial realities. When the funds “decide” to bail out of commodities positions or are set up to sell on certain USDA numbers, they fire “sell” orders without caring whether the underlying commercial reality justifies those prices. “The fund guys are trading those USDA numbers, and the fundamentalists just have to get out of the way,” said Squair.

Analyst Errol Anderson is also expecting to see firm crop prices heading to the end of seeding. However, that will probably change once the crop is in, he added. “The market wants to see tractors in the field. Once we see tractors in the field, look out,” said Anderson, who thinks the world economy is slouching toward a recession and demand is weakening more than people believe. As well, feed demand is weakening as cattle feeders lose money, and they might back away from the market once they’ve moved their fed cattle this spring. “Once the feedlot cattle start to leave the pen, it’s over,” said Anderson. “The barley bids are going to drop like a stone.” Neither Squair nor Hagel are as bearish for the summer as is Anderson, but Squair said the market could come under pressure in July if good crops appear to be developing across North America.


Surprise slowdown in Asian giant rattles crop markets MARKET WATCH



hina’s food demand and the state of its economy have jostled grain markets up and down in recent days. The outbreak of avian flu in China is hurting feed markets, its recent purchases of wheat helped support the price of that grain and disappointing economic growth in the first quarter of the year is depressing all commodity prices.

Stocks and commodities — oil, metals, gold, grains — all fell April 15 after China released data on its first quarter. The world’s second-biggest economy grew 7.7 percent from the same quarter a year ago. Canada and other developed countries can only dream of such growth, but for China that is a disappointment. The trade had expected eight percent. Growth was 7.9 percent in the previous quarter. The slowdown had traders thinking that China might not buy as much oil, metal, grain and other raw materials as expected. Following the report, wheat lost the ground it had gained the previous week on a rally sparked partly by news that China had bought 360,000 tonnes of U.S. soft winter wheat for delivery in 2013-14.

That was later upgraded to 480,000 tonnes. Analysts said China was taking advantage of recent cheaper wheat prices to rebuild depleted stocks. That puzzled me because just a few days before, the U.S. Department of Agriculture had raised its estimate of China’s year end 2012-13 wheat stocks by three million tonnes, which was the lion’s share of the four million tonne increase in global year end wheat stocks. However, in February the USDA agricultural attaché in Beijing challenged official USDA China wheat crop data. The attaché said the 2012 harvest was only 108 million tonnes, well shy of the USDA estimate of 120.6 million tonnes, which matches China’s official estimate.

The attaché and private Chinese analysts say the country had a significant fusarium problem last year that hurt yields. The recent buying of soft wheat for feed supports the idea that the official estimates are overly optimistic. However, while China might need to rebuild grain stocks, its feed demand appears to be weakening. There is a new type of avian influenza in China called H7N9 that has killed 14 and sickened 63 as of April 15. This has rocked China’s poultry markets, limiting trade and driving down prices. An Agence France-Presse story estimated the poultry industry lost $1.6 billion in the week following the first case of the flu in humans. That will likely lead to reduced poultry production and a resulting reduction in feed demand.

It is particularly troubling that flocks carrying the virus do not appear to be sick, making it hard to find the source of transmission. Also, hog production has shifted into a contraction period because of high feed prices, falling hogs prices and tight production margins. This has led to predictions that China’s soybean buying will decline after an eight-year tend of rapidly increasing imports. The avian flu is still a modest worry, but the wheat imports might be the only price-positive news for grains to come out of China for the foreseeable future if the virus mutates or evolves into something more like the 2002-03 SARS outbreak.

Flax acres moving West North American demand | More fields of blue may be seen in Alberta BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Go west, old crops. That’s the advice the markets have given to flax and could begin whispering to oats, says analyst Chuck Penner. Canadian flax acreage went from being 80 percent in Manitoba in 1976 to 80 percent in Saskatchewan by 2006. The trend is unlikely to stop at the Alberta-Saskatchewan border. “I submit that you’ll see it move further west,� Penner told the recent

Canada Grains Council annual meeting. “You’ll see more in Alberta.� Penner said shifting markets will likely result in substantial flax acreage in Alberta and continued low area in Manitoba. The crop was once shipped almost entirely to Europe, making proximity to Thunder Bay the dominant influence on relative prairie prices. The further east, the better the price. That has shifted in recent years, and buyers are now more diverse, including substantial demand from North America.


The discovery of a genetically modified variety in shipments to Europe, which closed that market, dramatically increased the relative price shift. As well, China’s rise as a significant buyer suddenly reversed the traditional spread of relative prices on the Prairies, often making it better to grow flax far west of Manitoba. Penner said there’s potential for oats to do the same thing. China now buys little Canadian oats, but there’s no reason it might not start buying some, he added. “I think maybe we can take oats and move it to China the way we developed peas and move flax,� he said. “If they can use it as a food ingredient, as a food component, if they can use it for even a small share of what they’re doing, what would that do in terms of total demand for oats?� Penner said farmers switch acres according to price signals, but not in the short run. They need to see a trend develop before embracing it. Blips and aberrations in the market don’t cause permanent shifts, but lasting price movements do. Corn and soybean acreage has increased in Manitoba and other warm parts of the Prairies, but he thinks the growth won’t continue unabated. At some point, those crops’ vulnerability to prairie weather will cause

Penner said big crops will continue to stay big in acreage. Wheat will remain dominant if GM varieties are introduced that are substantially better. Canola acreage will also remain strong, but probably less will be mar-

keted to the United States. American farmers are already growing substantial acreages in non-traditional places such as Oklahoma, and that trend might develop further, meeting more U.S. demand. Special crop prices will become even more volatile as they compete with the big crops for acreage. “They’ll face increasing pressure to buy acres.�

Trade mission extols virtues of prairie feed to Asian markets Barley, canola meal | Canadian experts educate buyers on use and benefits BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Can barley be fed to cattle all the way through the feeding process? It’s a question almost no Canadian cattle feeders would ask because they do it all the time. However, Asian livestock feeders asked the question repeatedly during a trip that Alberta Agriculture and the Alberta Barley Commission recently made to Japan and South Korea. “They use barley as a finishing ration because they like nice, white fat,� said Rex Newkirk of the Canadian International Grains Institute, who along with Tim McAllister of Agriculture Canada went on the trip as technical feed experts. “But they’re not sure they can use it earlier in the process.� So they don’t. This was just one of many questions or misperceptions of Canadian feedgrains that the Alberta mission found on its March 5-16 trip. Trip participants, who included feedgrain marketers, met with Asian feedgrain importers, processors and livestock feeders. The mission also discovered that many Japanese and Korean livestock


feeders believe barley has to be steamrolled like corn. Newkirk said the mission was able to explain that barley is better fed cracked rather than steamrolled and is actually better nutrition that way. It also makes it cheaper than corn to process. Many feeders also avoid canola meal because they think it’s the same as rapeseed meal. Some buy cheap rapeseed meal from China and India. They don’t realize that canola meal is non-bitter and easily digestible, not at all like rapeseed, which is harder to digest and bitter. “We had a number of people that mentioned the bitter taste,� said Newkirk. “They see it as second rate.� Newkirk said Japan and South Korea have high value livestock industries that require imported feedgrains. However, they mostly import U.S.

corn and soybeans, and displacing that is where the potential lies. Newkirk said the United States and Australia are more aggressive in those markets, and Canadians need to promote their crops if they want a bigger share. The markets are relatively close for farmers in Alberta. However, the Americans and Australians won’t voluntarily relinquish their market share, he added. “They market in there like crazy.� Newkirk said most marketers didn’t have a clear sense of the market potential during the years of the CWB monopoly because the board conducted the relationship. The goal of this mission, organized by one of Alberta’s overseas trade offices, was to determine the potential market demand for prairie crops and how to access it. The next step is to develop interest from potential buyers and create a bigger market for feedgrain growers and marketers on the western Prairies. The combination of Alberta organizations and technical experts from CIGI and Agriculture Canada seemed to work well, and Newkirk hopes it shows the kind of role CIGI can play in the new open market. “It was a really nice partnership.�

MARKETS CANFAX REPORT FED CATTLE FALL The domestic fed market has underperformed expectations, despite tighter North American fed supplies and strong Canadian fed cattle exports to the United States. The cool spring across much of North America is delaying barbecue season and hurting beef demand. Fed prices are range bound with steers averaging $112.70 per hundredweight, down 19 cents, and heifers averaging $112.17, down $1.17. Most of the dressed trade was at $188-$190 per cwt. delivered. There has been carryover the last few weeks and growing carcass weights are becoming an issue. Packers are taking about three weeks to lift cattle. Sale volumes totalled 10,452, up 26 percent from the previous week. The cash-to-futures basis strengthened $1.46 to close the week at -$14.62. Weekly fed exports to March 30 totalled 13,125 head, up 24 percent from the previous week. Weights are up but they should gradually fall with more calves entering the slaughter mix. Canadian packers have capitalized on the weak fed basis, and their processing margins are better than their American counterparts.

SLAUGHTER COWS RISE D1, D2 slaughter cows rose $1.23 to average $78.83 per cwt., following the seasonal trend higher. D3 cows were steady to average $69.90. Butcher bull prices fell 77 cents to average $88.92 per cwt. Weekly western Canadian non-fed slaughter to April 6 was 5,406 head, 55 percent larger than the previous short week. Exports to March 30 were steady with the previous week at 7,009 head.

FEEDER PRICES FALL Backgrounders are tired of waiting for a spring feeder rally. Auction volumes rose 19 percent and prices fell $1 per cwt. on lackluster demand. Steers 300-500 pounds fell 75 cents-$2.50 while stocker heifers eased moderately. Steers 500-800 lb. were steady while heifers were about $1 lower. Feeders heavier than 800 lb. were about $1.75 lower. Auction volume was 32,503 head, up 28 percent from last year. Weekly feeder exports to March 30 were 7,450, down five percent from the previous week. Feedlot losses have got to the point where some cattle on feed could be turned over at auction rather than fed to slaughter. New U.S. country-of origin labelling rules could limit feeder demand and exports to the U.S. Auction volumes are expected to tighten in the short term, and there should be enough local interest to stabilize prices.

BEEF FALLS Choice cutouts to April 11 fell $1.57 US to $190.15, while Select fell $4.26 to $183.99. The Choice-Select spread is now $6.16 compared to – six cents a year ago. Weekly Canadian cutouts to April 5 were mixed with AAA down $2 Cdn at $170.03 while the AA rose 75 cents to $171.89.

MARCH PLACEMENTS IMPROVE The Alberta and Saskatchewan cattle-on-feed report found 911,164



WP LIVESTOCK REPORT head in feedlots, down six percent from last year at the same time. Placements in March were 176,524, up eight percent over last year at the same time, which helped narrow the gap with last year. Most of the increase in placements was for feeders heavier than 800 lb., and heifer placements were up almost 15 percent. Marketings in March were 129,233, down four percent from last year. Other disappearance was 26,710, up 28 percent over last year. This cattle market information is selected from the weekly report from Canfax, a division of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association.

HOGS RISE Seasonally tight supply forced U.S. packers to raise cash hog bids last week. Weather in the United States prevented hog delivery to slaughter plants. Packers were expected to slow slaughter this week to deal with the tighter supply. Iowa-southern Minnesota hogs delivered to packing plants traded at about $61.50 US per hundredweight, up from $59.50 April 5. The estimated pork cut-out value was $81.19 April 12, up from $77.11 the previous week. Estimated U.S. slaughter to April 13 was 2.082 million, down slightly from 2.093 million the previous week.

BISON STEADY The Canadian Bison Association

said Grade A bulls in the desirable weight range sold at prices up to $3.70 Cdn per pound hot hanging weight. Grade A heifers sold up to $3.60. Animals older than 30 months and those outside the desirable weight range may be discounted. Slaughter bulls and cows were $1.70-$1.80 per lb. In the live market, quality 2012 bulls sold for about $2.22 per lb. and 2011s sold at $1.60. Heifers from 2012 sold for up to $2.25 while 2011s sold at $1.63.

SHEEP STEADY Beaver Hill Auction in Tofield, Alta., reported 494 sheep and 124 goats sold Apr. 8. Wool lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $147-$169 per cwt., 70-85 lb. were

$135-$159, 86-105 lb. were $107$126 and 106 lb. and heavier were $97-$108. Wool rams were $40-$58 per cwt. Cull ewes were $45-$60 and bred ewes were $155-$235 per head. Hair lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $142-$156 per cwt., 70-85 lb. were $130-$155, 86-105 lb. were $100$115 and 106 lb. and heavier were $92-$103. Hair rams were $40-$55 per cwt. Cull ewes were $43-$60. Good kid goats lighter than 50 lb. were $190-$235. Those heavier than 50 lb. were $195-$230 per cwt. Nannies were $76-$100.50 per cwt. Billies were $100-$152.50. Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported 1,921 sheep and lambs and 36 goats traded Apr. 8. All classes of sheep, lambs and goats sold steady.

Man. gov’t fails to recognize benefits of hog industry


t’s disappointing the Manitoba government isn’t doing more to help hog producers in the province. Last week, the NDP government led by premier Greg Selinger rejected a program designed to stabilize incomes for the province’s 700 hog producers. The province is going through financial hard times at present, and to cope the government has slashed spending, ordered a zero wage increase policy for civil servants and cut support for school taxes, among other austerity measures. So it could be just a case of bad timing. It can’t be seen to be offering loan guarantees for hog farmers while other sectors are forced to take cuts. However, people in the hog industry may find that tough to swallow. They are used to this sort of treatment by a Winnipeg-focused government that has in the past behaved as though it sees the hog industry as an annoyance rather than a economic stimulant and food provider. Last week, the Manitoba Pork Council received the bad news that the government would not support its plan for a stabilization program. It would provide farmers with up to $75 million in loans from a government backed line of credit. It would be short-term money, which farmers would repay through a $5 per head checkoff when their operations become profitable again. The program was to be self-funded by farmers and did not involve subsidies. Similar stabilization programs are not normally viewed as trade distorting, and it was unlikely to cause conflicts with Canada’s trading partners. The province’s risk exposure was limited to outright hog farm bankruptcies. By rejecting the pork council’s proposal, the government has sent a message to the industry and potential investors that it has little faith in the hog industry’s future. This is not the first time the provincial NDP has failed the pork sector. In the period leading up to the 2011 provincial election, the NDP openly vilified the hog industry as a polluter and issued a ban on hog barn expansions. It

did so even though the industry is a minor contributor to the Lake Winnipeg phosphorus problem, responsible for 1.5 percent of phosphorus entering the lake, according to the Lake Winnipeg Stewardship Board. It was action born out of political opportunism rather than solutions. The NDP could be seen by its largely urban supporters to be doing something about the problem while putting the burden on voters who were unlikely to support the NDP anyway. There is too little political support for the sector outside of those areas where hog farming actually occurs, or at least not enough to make it a concern for the government. That may yet prove to be a miscalculation. The hog industry has been hit by a barrage of problems lately: • U.S. country-of-origin labelling, which has cost the sector billions in lost exports. • Ractopamine bans in China and Russia, which will further damage exports. • An industry-wide shift to renovate barns to open stall housing. • High feed prices. Without assistance beyond what’s available in existing programs such as Growing Forward 2, many in the hog industry are beginning to toll the death knell for province’s small, independent producers. Without them, the hog sector will have to depend more on the corporate farms and Hutterite colonies, which are large enough to withstand the downturn. There are now also fears that large packers in Brandon and Neepawa will be forced to issue layoffs if hog supplies dwindle too far. It would have been a modest show of support for the province to extend loan guarantees to an industry worth $750 million annually and 13,000 jobs in the province, according to Manitoba Pork. It’s a shame the opportunity was missed.

NDP planning strategy to entice rural, prairie and farm voters back NATIONAL VIEW



f there is a hole in the New Democratic Party electoral strategy to move from second place to first in 2015, it has to be rural, agricultural and Western Canada. This vast region once was the core of NDP strength, particularly on the Prairies, the party’s birthplace. Now, NDP rural strength is scattered among a few British Columbia,

Ontario and Atlantic ridings but mainly concentrated in first-time Quebec NDP wins in 2011 that are far from a given for repeat in 2015. Numbers aside, it is an embarrassment for the party that Saskatchewan, the cradle of the CCF-NDP movement almost 80 years ago and that still holds the record for consecutive CCF-NDP years in power at 18, has not elected an NDP federal MP since 2000. The party has launched a campaign across the Prairies to try to find out how they lost their political mojo and how they might get it back. NDP national president Rebecca Blaikie, a long-time activist and daughter of long-time MP and then Manitoba cabinet minister Bill Blaikie, said last week the disconnect between voters and the federal party

even as they vote NDP provincially is mystifying. So MPs including Churchill’s Niki Ashton and Winnipeg’s Pat Martin and Edmonton’s Linda Duncan have joined Blaikie in hosting meetings across the Prairies to figure out what has gone off the rails and what can be done about it. The plan is to have a report, or perhaps a resolution, at the pre-election 2015 convention in Edmonton to make rural, prairie and agricultural voters a target. As they did in Quebec in their successful-beyond-their-wildestdreams campaign in 2011, New Democrats dream of importing the Quebec campaign model to the Prairies next time — a coals to Newcastle scenario if there ever was one. Still, if that is part of the party plan

to move from opposition to government, a part of the strategy could well have been approving or at least debating some rural or agricultural resolutions at their biennial convention in Montreal last weekend. It would have been a signal. Instead there was a perfunctory group hug for supply management and then … nothing. But policy time was limited on a convention floor dominated by feelgood speeches and assertions of how Canada needs more New Democrats. So there really was one forum in which there could have been an important message to rural and agricultural Canada that they have a place in party plans — the keynote speech by leader Thomas Mulcair April 13. As he unloaded on a long list of

Canadians forgotten by the Conservatives there was a Newfoundlander who could not find a job, an Ontario teacher, a Quebec mother worried about her kids, a Calgary business woman unhappy because she cannot get a Crown corporation board appointment, a Halifax veteran, a Vancouver transgendered who faces discrimination. Nowhere in Mulcair’s list was a suggestion that rural or agricultural Canadians have been left off of the Conservative winners’ list. For those trying to resurrect the party in rural and prairie Canada, a mention by the leader that they are part of the downtrodden under the Conservatives would have been helpful. Unless, of course, the leadership considers that swath of Canadian voters a lost cause.






Welcome to new normal in food safety

Farmers urged to improve ag information



ood traceability, which is a powerful tool to mitigate risks across food supply chains, does not guarantee food safety and integrity. Even so, the challenge of tracking food products and ingredients upstream and downstream touches on the core of what is required to manage risks posed by the new normal in the business of food and agriculture. The new normal presents a number of fascinating issues to contend with, among them designing comprehensive strategies in the field to effectively cope with climate change and the question of economic trends, subsidies and currency wars, as well as ever changing federal regulations on food packaging, labelling and safety and trade negotiations. None of these factors can ever be controlled by farmers or corporations, insofar as they create tremendous volatility in the marketplace, rendering predictability a rare commodity in decision-making. The politics of food is also at the forefront of agribusiness and food safety. Food, agriculture and policy have never been mutually exclusive entities, and companies are now compelled to appreciate how one variable can significantly affect another, while worrying about the next quarter. More consumers are now eating with a conscience, and as such are looking for fair trade product, and organic and locally sourced foods and ingredients. The ethical treatment of animals has also caught the

Accountability has become key in the food industry. | attention of executives in the field. To complicate things further, the global food security agenda is also putting pressure on modern food systems. The objective of keeping input costs down and profit margins up is no longer enough to deal with these problems. In food production, we have entered the era of sound partnerships, efficient networks and global outreach. The new normal in food and agriculture will demand more collaboration between stakeholders. Competing businesses will need to share data and costs as well as build strategies set on converging interests. In the end, effective food traceability methods will rely heavily on increased teamwork among former rivals.


Our food safety agenda is affected by all of these shifts. The same can be said of food systems themselves, which are also being fundamentally challenged. Over the last few years, Canada has had more than 2,700 food safety investigations and more than 250 food recalls per year. Indeed, over the past four years, the number of food recalls has increased by more than 200 percent without taking into consideration the number of unreported incidents. These statistics clearly indicate how different our approach to risk management must be now. Moving forward, we need to carefully decide how to monitor risk. But what we gain in food surveillance, we

may lose in food distribution efficiencies. In other words, more food safety regulations and food traceability may lead to a rise in the price of food. Until about 2009, we lived in the era of crises in food safety, including BSE, salmonella, botulism, listeria and E. coli. We focused more on managing fears than managing risks. Politics continually trumped economics. From 2009 to 2012, we witnessed a developing synergy between industry and government, health and agriculture that remains ongoing. Today, we live at the dawn of the era of accountability in food systems. Given governments’ limited capacity to create new food safety programs, the industry is compelled to become more accountable to the government. But we also need to find ways to make government more accountable to the public. Most importantly, however, we need to make the industry more accountable to itself, which is why food traceability is imperative for the future of global food safety systems. While the system has solved many aspects of traceability, significant challenges remain to provide cost effective protocols for market assurance and product improvement. Based on economics alone, the time to improve our systems will be set by consumers, and nobody else.

Let’s avoid a revolution in farm structure HURSH ON AG



hat’s a big grain farm these days? Is it 10,000 acres? 20,000? 40,000? Those are all small potatoes compared to what’s happening in some other regions of the world. O n Apr il 11, Agr reported a deal whereby Kernel Holding of Ukraine increased its land base to well over 4,000 sq. kilometres. That’s slightly more than a million acres. The acquisition involves an 80 percent interest in a farm operation managing more than 250,000 acres of leased land holdings in northeastern Ukraine. Modern equipment and 100,000 tonnes of storage capacity

were part of the $186 million deal. Listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange, Kernel Holding isn’t the only big player in Ukraine. UkrLandFarming has a reported 1.3 million acres and is building three elevators with capacity of 300,000 tonnes each on top of the more than one million tonnes of storage it already owns. Will we ever see these sorts of integrated mega farms in Western Canada? Farms here have certainly grown dramatically. Most of the output now comes from operations with gross annual sales of more than $1 million, and an increasing number of operations generate gross sales of more than $2 million. However, most of the large farms in Western Canada remain family based, and they’re still tiny compared to Kernel Holding and UkrLandFarming. A few large grain and cattle operations were established in the early days of western Canadian agriculture, but they crashed and burned over time. Some significant corporate operations have emerged once

again in recent years, but that isn’t the norm. Based on history, one might conclude that moderate-sized, independent, family-based farms will continue to be the way of the future in this part of the world. However, it would be a mistake to take that for granted. Just look at what has happened to hog production in less than a generation. Hog operations went big starting in the 1980s and accelerating in the 1990s, and many moved to a different ownership structure. Incredibly, the efficiencies of size haven’t been enough to overcome the prolonged periods of unprofitability. Tens of thousands of farms in Western Canada had hogs in the 1970s. Today, most of the production comes from a few large players that are integrated with the major packing plants. Some independents, including Hutterite colonies, remain in the business, but they number in the hundreds. Governments who were once committed to the continued expansion of the prairie hog industry are no longer showing much interest

in the survival of independent hog producers. You could argue that the cattle feeding industry is going in the same direction, with major packing plants owning a great deal of the feedlot capacity. However, the cow-calf business remains predominately in the hands of smaller, family based operations. Vertical integration can be good when it is farmers investing in processing and retail. However, it’s bad when integration means big business owning or controlling primary production. While I don’t have an appetite for government dictating how farms can be owned or how large they can grow, I hope our grain and cow-calf industries don’t see the revolution in farm size and structure that has occurred in countries such as Ukraine. Nor do we want a repeat of the revolution that has occurred within our own hog sector. Kevin Hursh is an agricultural journalist, consultant and farmer. He can be reached by e-mail at




ebbie Lee has been part of Aggie Days in Calgary long enough that she is seeing the children of children from the early days come through the doors. Aggie Days is 28 years old, so the notion of educating people about agriculture is not exactly new. The thousands of children who visit Aggie Days to milk Bluebell the “cow,” twist lengths of rope and ooh and aah over the adorable piglets are mostly urban, and that’s a good thing. Western Producer livestock reporter Barbara Duckworth introduced me to Lee on my trip to southern Alberta last week. Lee said it’s important for children to see that farmers are working hard so that “livestock and crops are raised properly, and we all have a lot of food.” There’s a lot of concern these days about how agriculture is being portrayed in the mainstream media and on the internet: largely negatively and assisted by groups that sneakily take videos in hog barns, for example. Farmers are rightly concerned because consumers are driving big changes in how their food is grown and raised. In some cases, change will be good, but in general, the public obviously has to understand agriculture better. The media is full of misconceptions that the industry is now forced to tackle. It seems to me that there is a recently escalating push to provide better information. Farm Credit Canada has launched its Agriculture More Than Ever campaign. In addition to Aggie Days, there are the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto, the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair and events at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon intended to pull back the curtain on agricultural practices. There is also Agriculture in the Classroom across the Prairies. Saskatchewan agriculture minister Lyle Stewart was promoting the need for agricultural understanding just last week. Meanwhile, pro-ag activists like Marilyn Payn-Knoper from the United States are speaking out pretty loudly, and convincingly, about the need to get out there and talk positively about the industry using social media. Farmers, individually like PaynKnoper and collectively at shows like Aggie Days, which are mainly volunteer run, are starting to get into the conversation. It’s important that we continue this push and make it clear to the public and to some governments that this is an honourable industry that they, very simply, cannot do without.

REIKI HEALING To the Editor: Re: Clare Rowson’s column, Reiki said to focus on energy (WP March 7) My roots were formed on a Sask-

atchewan farm. My father gave me great gifts: horses and the wisdom to question the status quo. I was enjoying my forestry career and equine pursuits. My body was healthy but started to give me messages. In my 20s, my feet started to cause me pain. A doctor told me to accept that as my body aged, it would develop structural problems and that I could take pain medication. I was not impressed. I discovered alternative solutions. Later, I was overwhelmed by a lack of energy (thyroid). I could hardly stay awake through a day of office work. A series of reflexology treatments resolved the problem.

Preston Ave. S.

In his article, Time for farm groups, leaders to discuss food policies, take action on hunger, (WP Feb. 28), Barry Wilson notes there was “precious little farm sector reaction” to the recent report of Olivier De Schutter, United Nations special rapporteur on the right to food. De Schutter found Canadian food and poverty policy seriously lacking. Sadly, Mr. Wilson has done a tremendous disservice to the farm sector and to the entire issue of hunger in Canada by ignoring the ongoing efforts of the farm sector, as well as the agri-food sector and several key actors along the food chain. As he knows, over three years ago the Canadian Federation of Agriculture consulted across the farm and food sector and developed a National Food Strategy. The NFS is a long-term vision for food, including food access for all Canadians. Through the NFS, Canada’s farm and food sector has clearly acknowledged the problem of hunger and access to food in Canada. If Mr. Wilson and other Canadian journalists helped inform the public of this initiative rather than misinforming, perhaps our governments would become more engaged. The agriculture and food sector does not dispute the De Schutter report. We believe it is time to move forward with a clear set of objectives to address the identified problems. Let’s do this collectively and in a productive way.

OPINION Here at New Rosedale colony farms, we got penalized $7,000 for burning coal. A neighbouring colony got dinged $14,000 and one near Starbuck, Man., $38,000. It is the perfect definition of a money grab for our government. Or is it just coincidence that this (new) coal tax falls in place shortly after Manitoba Hydro purchases a natural gas pipeline? Or a total ban coming in Manitoba on coal by next year? Now after 15 to 20 years of hard work and investing, the local farmers and Hutterite colonies have established systems. We burn coal to save money. We have millions invested throughout Manitoba, and our government is shutting us down. Each and every time the Manitoba agriculture industry makes headway, our own so-called government creates obstacles extremely difficult

or impossible for us to succeed, first with strict manure regulations that cost us millions and foreclosed some. Then, (they instituted) a ban of new hog barns in Manitoba, and now again, they are taking our heat source. I attended the sixth annual Biomass Burning workshop in Otterburn, Man., on March 8. Approximately 150 people showed up. The message we took home was the only alternative we have is natural gas. There is no consistent supply of anything, of that abundance. They are calling purchasing coal from Saskatchewan as if the natural gas was coming from the local Canadian Tire. If this new coal tax wasn’t created to form a monopoly on Manitoba’s heat source, then this letter’s in Spanish. Manitoba Hydro conveniently came up with the figure of, if

we come up with $180,000, they’ll hook us up. Math done already. It’s all about money, it’s unfair and we want justice. In Manitoba, we need a government that serves as a backbone for our agriculture industry, not a system that burns bridges as fast as we can build them. We cannot possibly survive as farmers in this province with our government our worst enemy. We have to stand up for our rights. This has to stop. Dale Baer, Portage, Man.

PESTICIDE LEGALITIES To the Editor: In another few weeks, many agricultural producers will be taking to


the fields using toxic chemicals to grow grains for human consumption. I question the legality of this practice. Let me explain. If your cows come onto my property or my pigs go onto your property, we have a problem. We have to repair or put up better fences to keep damages from occurring and to keep the peace between neighbours. However, if your toxic farm chemicals drift over onto my property via air, groundwater or surface, it’s all legal and OK? Since no agri-producer can guarantee that his or her chemicals will stay on their property, and they do not, can this practice be legal? Does anyone have the right to expose others around them with noxious products? When it comes to the foods produced, we can make choices to eat non-contaminated foods, but it seems that our choices don’t apply to


air and water. Farmers have been brainwashed for years by the large agricultural multinationals to produce more to feed the growing population of the world. Well, it is not our responsibility to feed the world at our detriment. We should trade our surpluses and help in other ways. We are producing more quantity when the focus should be on nutritional quality. A solution is to insist on third party testing of all chemicals. Secondly, we must insist on full disclosure of all ingredients of these products, never mind the need for patent infringement protection. The consumers should have more rights than large corporations or are we not simply poisoning ourselves slowly all the way to the bank? Paul-Emile L’Heureux, White Fox, Sask.

Becoming part of community SPIRITUAL VIGNETTES



’ve only lived here for 20 years,” t h e m i d d l e - a g e d w o ma n replied when I asked how many in our discussion group had roots in the community. She still felt she was an outsider in her husband’s family. Now that we have immigrants from a variety of overseas countries living and working locally, I think back on that woman’s statement. If it was hard for her to feel a sense of belonging, how much harder is it for those who have features that are identifiably different? Add language barriers and the social and cultural hurdles. These folks may be managers of the Shell station or the motel or they may be offering a professional service. Small communities pride themselves in seeing each other as part of an extended family, but too often the newcomers are accepted only for the service they offer and not for the persons they are. As a result, locals don’t think about the isolation and loneliness or confusion and uncertainty because they aren’t aware of what the community has to offer. I appreciate the way my teacher friend focuses on understanding and integrating new children in her class. I appreciate the church member who reaches out to befriend, invite and involve “those from away.” But so much more could be done. We need to put names and faces and stories to those new to our family and social circles. Hopefully, others will follow and welcome them, appreciate them, include them in the ongoing life of the community. An international potluck dinner or invitation to a picnic could do a lot to break walls of separation. Thus the cultural and spiritual fabric of our lives could be given new depth.

Trudeau said to connect with rural Canadians Vows to stop party infighting | Justin Trudeau is seen as having a feel for rural Canada despite no policy promises BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Montreal MP Justin Trudeau won an overwhelming victory April 14 to become the 13th permanent Liberal leader in Canadian history. The 41-year-old charismatic son of f o r m e r p r i m e m i n i s t e r P i e r re Trudeau immediately declared that the Liberal party civil wars were over. The internal party strife had helped propel the party from government in 2005 to third party status and its worst electoral showing in 2011. For three decades, losers in party leadership races reacted to defeat by organizing sedition within the party against the leader. The result was a party drained by division and resources diverted to internal fights. “Canadians turned against us because we turned away from them,”

Trudeau told an Ottawa Liberal crowd after his overwhelming leadership win of almost 80 percent of the votes. “Liberals brought their focus to fight each other rather than to fight for Canadians.” Trudeau, a second-term MP with a thin file of policy proposals but a large following, said the era of Liberal infighting has ended. There are no more Trudeau-Liberals (referring to his father), TurnerLiberals or Chrétien Liberals, he declared. “The era of hyphenated Liberals ends right here, right now,” he told a boisterous applauding crowd in an Ottawa hotel ballroom. Trudeau, the fifth leader of the party in the past decade, inherits a Liberal machine that has grown rusty and badly in need of a refit. He has 29 months until the next

election to turn it around. Trudeau made no significant policy pronouncements affecting agriculture or rural Canada. However, he attracted the support of rural-connected Liberals, including deputy leader Ralph Goodale from Regina, trade critic Wayne Easter from Prince Edward Island and agriculture critic Frank Valeriote from Guelph, Ont. In his victory speech, Trudeau made reference to Sir Wilfrid Laurier, famous for his “sunny ways” and a hero to his father. The country needs less cynicism and more sunny ways,

said the new leader. Goodale picked up on the theme. “He has a special ability to rally people around a happier vision of what this country has the potential to achieve,” said Goodale. “Perhaps the most telling criticism of the Harper regime is that they’re so unambitious, their goals for Canada are so mediocre.” Trudeau has already had an influence on party rural politics. After the 2011 election, when Easter was targeted by the Conservatives and saw his margin of victory shrink, he mused that it might be his last

election. Conservative leader Stephen Harper was in power for four more years, and Easter was tired of the fight. He removed himself from the House of Commons agriculture committee. On the weekend, Easter changed tack. “Trudeau has not articulated a rural policy, but he had connected with rural Canadians,” said Easter in the midst of the pro-Trudeau crowd at the leadership announcement. “He has a feel for rural Canada. You can count on me running in the next election.”

Richardson International has received approval to expand its grain export terminal on the West Coast. The Winnipeg grain company announced April 15 that Port Metro Vancouver had issued a permit allowing the expansion to proceed. The project will add 80,000 tonnes of new storage capacity at Richardson’s grain export terminal in North Vancouver. Construction is expected to begin immediately. “We are very pleased to move forward with this project, as we see it as key to meeting growing demand from global markets,” said Darwin Sobkow, Richardson’s executive vice-president of agribusiness operations. “This expansion will allow us to serve both our farm customers and international buyers more effectively by increasing capacity to move Cana-

dian grains and oilseeds to rapidly emerging markets in Asia-Pacific and around the world.” The expansion, valued at $120 million, will consist of 28 concrete grain silos, each about 50 metres high, overlooking the Burrard Inlet in North Vancouver. Company spokesperson Tracey Shelton said the project will increase throughput capacity at the terminal to five million tonnes annually, up from three million tonnes. The company has been operating at maximum capacity at its terminal in Vancouver since 2008, she said. Richardson president Curt Vossen called the project a significant investment that will benefit prairie farmers and allow the company to move Canadian grain and oilseeds to market more efficiently. The expansion is expected to create hundreds of full-time jobs during the two-year construction period and an additional 40 to 50 permanent full-time positions once the

expansion is complete. “This is a significant investment in our business and the biggest investment in the Port of Vancouver in more than 20 years,” said Vossen. “Through this project, we are creating jobs, supporting Port Metro Vancouver’s vision to grow the port and ultimately helping to increase Canadian trade by remaining competitive and ensuring continued access to global markets for prairie farmers.” Not everyone sees the project as a reason to celebrate. North Vancouver residents living in close proximity to the terminal say the project will have a negative impact on property values. In a series of public meetings held over the past few months, opponents of the project said the expansion would block waterfront views and decrease residential property values by $20 million for 100 residents. Construction is expected to be complete in 2015.





Thunder Bay port hopes shipping volumes surge Traffic patterns | While shipments were up at Port of Thunder Bay last year, volumes are hard to predict, says CEO BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The 2013-14 shipping season is underway at the Port of Thunder Bay. Tim Heney, chief executive officer of the Thunder Bay Port Authority, said the first laker arrived at the port March 26, a day after the opening of the Soo Locks at Sault Ste Marie, Ont. Fifteen ships had been loaded with grain as of April 11 and another five were in port. Heney called it an average start to the shipping season. “We were quite encouraged (by grain shipments) … at the end of the year but so far, the start (to 2013 shipping) has been a little bit slow, actually,” he said. “We were hoping for a bigger surge, but we’ll see what happens.” Grain shipments through Thunder

Bay totalled 6.5 million tonnes last year, roughly 10 percent higher than the 10-year average of 5.9 million tonnes. Wheat volumes were up 10 percent. Annual grain volumes were the second highest level of the past decade. Much of the increase in 2012 grain traffic occurred late in the year, after the CWB marketing monopoly was eliminated. Heney said the port was hoping the surge in grain business would carry over to the new shipping season. Traffic patterns in the new market-

ing environment are hard to predict, he added. Grain companies with export facilities at Thunder Bay are adjusting to new logistical issues, and lake freight is now dealing with multiple companies rather than just CWB. A higher-than-normal snow pack across much of the Prairies has also affected grain shipments, as has unseasonable cold weather in March and April. “We saw quite a dramatic change at the end of last year in terms of more wheat shipments through the port and more ocean vessels, so we did

see some good signs, but that was only one quarter,” Heney said. “But we’re into a whole new world now without the wheat board, and really, our success is based on the success of the (companies) that we have here, the Richardson, Viterra, P&H and Cargill.” Heney said the elimination of CWB delivery calls will likely result in less predictable delivery patterns, where market prices influence farm sales and deliveries. Thunder Bay has more storage capacity than any other grain export facility in North America, he added.

That capacity could prove beneficial in managing the flow of grain in and out of the port. “Because we have that big capacity, if we’re a bit behind, we can make that up in a very short time,” Heney said. “You can load a lot of grain at one time here if you have the ships ready to do it.” Heney said the addition of new lakers over the next few years will improve shipping efficiency on the Great Lakes. At least 14 new ships will be added to seaway fleets.


$388M allocated for ag programs BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

The Saskatchewan and federal governments will allocate $388 million of Growing Forward 2 money to six primary areas over the next five years. The non-business risk management programming announced last week was developed in consultation with producers, said provincial agriculture minister Lyle Stewart. “These are the areas they felt were most important to the industry,” he said. “That gave us a pretty solid grounding when we were dealing with the feds on this piece.” Spending will be $71.2 million annually, up $25 million per year from the first Growing Forward agreement. The lion’s share of the money will go to innovation, research and technology transfer. A total of $170 million is allocated to programs such as the Agriculture Development Fund, Agricultural Demonstration of Practices and Technologies, the AgriARM research sites and 15 strategic research chairs, including a new forage research chair. The Farm and Ranch Infrastructure Water Program, irrigation infill and other water development will receive $65 million. Environment, food safety and plant and animal health programs will receive $60 million. These include environmental farm plans, environmental group plans, livestock biosecurity, traceability, on-farm food safety and pest control. Value-added business development and market and trade development will receive $32 million over the five-year term. A new Lean Improvements in Manufacturing program for agrifood processors will also be funded from the program. The details of many of the programs are available at

Groups riled over GM alfalfa plan Contamination feared | Forage Genetics International assured industry that RR alfalfa will be sold only in Eastern Canada, where a coexistence plan will be in place BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

About 20 farmers and supporters rallied outside federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz’s office in North Battleford, Sask., to protest against the possible introduction of genetically modified alfalfa in Canada. | WILLIAM DEKAY PHOTO

An April 9 “day of protest� against the potential release of Roundup Ready alfalfa achieved the goals of organizers but also generated response from government and farm groups. The protest involved gatherings outside more than 30 Conservative MP offices, which demanded that government stop the registration of genetically modified

alfalfa that is now working its way through the process. “We now see more discussion about GM alfalfa, and farmers created a platform for a voice of concern over that issue,� said Lucy Sharratt, co-ordinator of the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network, which helped organize protest events with the National Farmers Union. “We’re interested to see the difference between vague reassurances and actual action on this issue. We’re very concerned that the minister

needs to stop the registration of GM alfalfa rather than asking farmers to rely on Forage Genetics to make a decision.� Forage Genetics International has the rights to commercialize the RR alfalfa and has confirmed intentions to use it in Eastern Canada if registration is obtained. Most of the protests took place in Ontario, but the lone event in Saskatchewan took place outside the North Battleford office of federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz. “People around the world don’t want GM products and they’re not going to buy it,� said NFU member Glenn Tait in North Battleford. “If we have it in our own exports, we can’t get rid of it, we can’t isolate it from anything else. If we haven’t got exports, that’s going to shut down those market opportunities for us.� Ritz said later that he recognized the right of people to protest, but decisions on GM registration must be based on sound science. “Of course it’s farmers that will make the decision whether to grow the product or not,� said Ritz. Federal NDP agriculture critic Malcolm Allen and Liberal agriculture critic Frank Valeriotte issued statements calling for a moratorium on approval of RR alfalfa. Valeriotte called for more public research into Canada’s ability to segregate GM varieties from other varieties. Grain Growers of Canada issued a release stating its disagreement with the protest and support for a sciencebased approach to approving new crops or traits. Manitoba Beef Producers issued a statement along the same lines. President Trevor Atchison said RR alfalfa is part of the larger picture that involves advancements in forage research that can benefit the cattle industry and ensure it remains competitive. “Non-science issues, like foreign market access or public acceptance, should be left to the industry and market to address. This is not the realm for regulatory restrictions,� Atchison said in a statement. CropLife Canada said groups involved in the protest tend to overlook the benefits of GM crops. “It’s been shown that plant biotechnology helps farmers, it’s good for the environment and it delivers tangible benefits to consumers such as lower food prices,� said Nadine Sisk, executive director of communications for CropLife. She said the industry has a history of stewardship and plans are underway to address concerns about RR alfalfa’s coexistence with non-GM varieties. The Canadian Seed Trade Association is developing best management practices for that coexistence, and chief executive officer Patty Townsend said an expert panel is now working on the final details. Mike Peterson of Forage Genetics International confirmed that the company has applied for registration, and if that proceeds, RR alfalfa will be sold only in Eastern Canada, where a coexistence plan will be in place. He said there are no plans to sell the variety in the West.




Sask. 2013 spring long, cold, wet

Canada, Mexico agree, disagree BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Snowbanks stick around | Normally all the snow is gone the first week of April BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

It’s official. The spring of 2013 will go down as one of the coldest and latest in recent memory, according to climate experts at the Saskatchewan Research Council. SRC climatologist Virginia Wittrock said there have been later springs and colder ones, but not many that today’s farmers would recall. “Yes, this has been a long cold winter.… However, it’s not as bad as (some winters) have been in the past,” Wittrock said. “There have been worse springs than this. There have been longer winters than this. It just hasn’t happened for the past 30 years or so.” According to SRC data, this year’s late melt is largely the result of three factors: above average winter precipitation, below normal temperatures in March and April and the lack of a mid-winter melt that normally occurs in January or February. The SRC operates two state-of-the art weather stations in Saskatchewan: one in Saskatoon and another south of Prince Albert. The Saskatoon station has accumulated 50 years worth of climate data. Wittrock said precipitation in Saskatoon this winter was slightly above average. In the six-month period ending March 31, rain and snow accumulations amounted to the equivalent of 91 millimetres of moisture. That was marginally lower than the 91.6 mm measured in the winter of 2011-12 and well below the blustery winter of 1974. That year, the Saskatoon station received 192 mm of precipitation and the permanent snow pack did not disappear until April 30. Normally — at least during the past decade — the snow pack at Saskatoon is gone by the first week in April, if not earlier. According to Wittrock, this year’s lingering snow pack is reminiscent of conditions that were relatively common in the late 1960s and early 1970s. This year’s spring is also cold, although not the coldest, she said. Minimum temperatures during the winter of 2012-13 did not get as low as many other years, but daytime highs were consistently below freezing. A more telling factor was the consistently cold temperatures in March. This year, the average daily maximum temperature in March was -5.4 C and the average daily minimum was -15.1 C. By comparison, the average daily maximum last March was 5.2 C and the average daily minimum was -4.5 C, a difference of almost 10 degrees from this year to last. Wittrock said the snow covering most of Saskatchewan could disappear quickly if daytime temperatures approach seasonal normals or if temperatures rise above zero and rain clouds move in. Grant McLean, a cropping management specialist with Saskatchewan Agriculture, said it is too early for farmers to hit the panic button. Many prairie farmers are still buried in snow and some are growing anxious to get on the land or at least pull their machinery out of the snow.

-5.4 C 5.2 C

However, McLean said the province’s first acres aren’t usually seeded until the last week in April. Normal temperatures in the last half of April and no major interruptions in May could allow growers to still get the majority of their acres in and finish their spring seeding

operations on schedule. “Certainly its frustrating now for the individuals who are trying to get around and get things organized in anticipation of the spring season,” McLean said. “We’re probably going to see some delays, but I think it’s more dependent now on the weather that we get in the next two to three weeks.” Wittrock said farmers in many parts of Western Canada headed into winter with low soil moisture. A late crop sown into moisture is always better than an early one sown into dust, she added.

Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz found common cause with Mexican politicians in fighting American livestock protectionism, but less agreement on reversing Mexican protectionism against Canadian beef imports. Mexico is a partner with Canada in fighting country-of-origin labelling rules in the United States that effectively restrict livestock imports. Canada is threatening up to $1 billion annually in retaliation against U.S. imports if Washington does not change the rule by the May 23 deadline set by the World Trade Organization after a WTO panel decided the COOL rules are illegal protectionism.

After meetings in Mexico City last week, Ritz told an April 11 telephone news conference that Mexico is on side with its own plan for retaliation. However, Ritz said he received no assurances of change when he raised the decade-long dispute over restrictions on Canadian beef imports. Mexico bans import of Canadian beef from animals older than 30 months, harking back to the BSE crisis of 2003. Ritz said the restriction is not justified by internationally accepted standards of animal safety and risk. He suggested a trade-off is possible “The Mexicans are looking for access to our beef sector into Canada,” he said. “I think there’s certainly things that we can do here jointly that would address both of those issues.”

Tackling the obesity question A family issue | Obesity is a complex problem with no easy answers — education starts at home BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

TORONTO — Obesity is a major Canadian health scourge linked to one in 10 deaths, experts said last week. The problem has tripled over the past 20 years and affects as many as one in four Canadians. “This is a huge, huge health problem,” Ottawa obesity specialist Dr. Robert Dent told a Conference Board of Canada food strategy conference April 9. However, he warned against drawing simple conclusions about the cause of the epidemic, including over-eating or products produced by the food industry. “Obesity is not rocket science,” said the medical director of Ottawa Hospital’s weight management clinic. “It is a lot harder.” Dent’s analysis was that some people have a genetic disposition to weight gain, which is a major factor. Add to that a general decline in physical activity with the invention of such exercisereducing devises as garage door openers, the television remote and computers and Canadians are not burning as many calories as they once did. “So why aren’t we all fat?” asked Dent. His answer was genetic predisposition. “There is an incredible disconnect between what one eats and what one weighs,” said Dent. Skinny people often consume more calories than overweight people and yet do not gain weight. “Obesity is a symptom of many underlying causes,” he said. “It is not a simple disorder.” However, Dent said the food industry is not the problem. “We need not abuse the food industry but ask for help from it to produce and promote healthy products.” He said the three main strategies at his clinic are weight control drugs, surgery and encouraging lifestyle changes such as changing food intake and exercise patterns. “But short-term diets do not work,” he said. “Any treatment for weight has to be forever.” Toronto-area hospital dietician Sue Ekserci offered a different explanation for the obesity epidemic. She argued that the issue is often the message sent to children by parents and school.

Ekserci, who works at the women’s and children’s health program at Humber River regional hospital, said both nature and nurture are involved in the problem, but her emphasis is nurture. When she works with overweight children, “I’m really counseling the whole family.” She said strategies to encourage overweight children to eat healthier can be as simple as putting fruits

and vegetables on kid-accessible shelves in the fridge. Counselling also includes telling pregnant women that their child will have an elevated chance of being overweight if they gain excessive weight during pregnancy. She said a key piece of advice to parents and schools is that messaging about healthy food and exercise should be consistent and the emphasis should not be on what not to eat.

Both speakers also shared tales about the challenges. Ekserci said her children had a school exercise about food that required them to put an X through junk food. Then they had a snack that included potato chips. Dent told of an attempt to make the Ottawa hospital cafeteria offer healthier fare, only to have staff line up at a recently arrived chip wagon across the street.


Handle social media with care: expert BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

GLENLEA, Man. — Farm businesses have practical difficulties using leading social media tools, including having bad internet access. But they also run risks of social media becoming unsociable to them if they don’t use it right, local experts told farmers and agriculture people at a workshop. “You put up a Facebook page and ignore it or don’t respond to people, it’s useless, and it can be actually harmful to you,” said University of Manitoba researcher Christine Van Winkle. Social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, have become dominant forms of communication in the few years since being invented, and many businesses and industries believe they need to be active in social media to reach customers . Many farms have websites, thousands of farmers have Facebook accounts and many use Twitter, but experts from food processing and tourism warned farmers not to expect too much from social media. “It places huge demands, especially on those smaller organizations,” said Van Winkle, suggesting farm businesses and organizations that use websites and social media manage those accounts every day. Lorenda Madill of Manitoba Tourism said social media offer a great way to communicate with the public and customers but need to be thought out. “What are you doing to engage with the customer,” said Madill. “It’s a fine line. You don’t want to annoy them by constantly posting stuff that’s not of interest to them. It has to be thought about strategically.” Manitoba Agriculture business development specialist Jeff Fidyk, an expert in retail food packaging, said social media offer an important medium for business operators and the public to interact, but they can backfire. He recently explored a major food processor’s online presence and found it clogged with attacks on the company and denunciations of its products. “They’re just getting the tar kicked out of them,” said Fidyk. “They have probably tried to reply to this, but then they get beaten up even more.” The experts say embracing social media and doing well can reap rewards, but commitment is key. Interlake farmer Kim Streker noted her area still has poor internet access in many places, and farmers can’t use some of the tools they hear about. “There is a lack of infrastructure, especially in my region in the Interlake, so that we can use this stuff,” she said.





Large family works together, plays together Foster parents | Children help with chores on the Saskatchewan dairy farm BY KAREN MORRISON SASKATOON NEWSROOM

MARSDEN, Sask. — Every child deserves a home, agree Arianne and Otto Koedyk. That’s why the couple decided to adopt six children that they had cared for during their 22 years of foster parenting and build a ninebedroom house on their Saskatchewan dairy farm near the Alberta border. “It’s important for kids to have stability and permanence in life,” said Otto, who like his wife, grew up in a big family in Holland. They continue as foster parents and juggle parenting responsibilities with milking 100 Holsteins and growing barley on their four quarter farm. “Mom is a very independent and strong woman. They’re good parents, loving, kind, nurturing,” said Cylen Koedyk, 13. She and her siblings, Shayla, 17, Shelby, 7, Levi, 6 and Kaydon, 5, lend a hand in the house and barn and tend to an assortment of bunnies, donkeys and chickens. Daniel, 19, works as a dry waller in Lloydminster. Otto oversees the dair y while Arianne takes care of the calves. “It’s never boring,” sad Otto of his big family. Added Arianne: “There’s always something to do.” The Koedyks mainly stay close to home, making day trips to nearby lakes, but have travelled to Holland in past years. “It’s a commitment, especially right now,” said Otto . They grow and mix their own feed to keep costs down and receive $2,000 in revenue from one gas lease. “It’s right in the middle of our best land,” Otto said. They have been fortunate to find labour in a job market that must compete with the oil patch that surrounds them. A busy industry brings more people to town, but rural businesses have shrunk as nearby Lloydminster becomes a major service hub. “That’s kind of sad. There’s a lot of older people who don’t have their (driver’s) licence,” said Arianne. The couple met in Canada after coming to southern Alberta from Holland separately to work on farms. They met in church, something that has remained central to their family life. When Arianne was stricken with pneumonia recently, she received help from her family but also received hot meals from church members. The children participate in church youth groups and Bible camps. The Koedyks operated a 160 dairy cow operation with another couple for 20 years but now manage the twice a day milkings at their parlour style dairy with help from two workers who have homes in the farmyard. They sell bull calves at two months old and keep the heifers for replacement cows. The Koedyks say dairy farms have shrunk to 86 from 1,000 in the prov-

They once supplied a Lloydminster dairy but have shipped milk to Saskatoon since it closed. Otto would like to have more dairy farmers nearby, but keeps abreast of industry news through a newsletter and talking with other farmers. He said the quota system provides a comfortable living for families and doesn’t want to see supply managed systems changed in world trade talks. “Canada is the only place in the world where dairy farmers are doing well,” he said. “Our milk’s not that much more expensive than anywhere else.”

They raise chickens, drink the milk from their cows and manage a large garden for their own needs. Arianne likes farm life, and the distance from their nearest neighbours suits the large family. “We’re a pretty loud family,” she said. “Kids like it here too, the openness and freedom.” Cylen said Arianne heads for the

lawn mower when feeling overwhelmed. “I like being on my own,” Arianne said of her penchant for cutting grass. Cylen, who has been here for eight years, has learned much from farm life. “I enjoy being out here. I could not live in the city,” she said. “The only down part is there’s not enough kids

around here to hang out with.” She and her siblings are bussed to schools in Marsden and Neilburg. Arianne lamented on a reality of foster parenting —the return of children to biological parents. “I don’t always agree, but rules are rules,” she said. “It’s nice to see families back together if it works.”






Store covers customers’ needs head to toe Service important | Store owner finds balance between business and family

If you’re going to be successful at this business, the time you put into it is important, but so is the time you have at home.




CARLYLE, Sask. — By the time his department store opens at 9 a.m., Ken King has already spent half a day contacting suppliers, balancing the books and planning for the upcoming season. Once the store is open, King’s attention turns to customers as he asks, “are you being taken care of,” do you have what you need,” or “can I get someone to help you.” That’s how this 51-year-old entrepreneur has sustained an independently owned department store in small-town Saskatchewan. King’s Department Stores in Carlyle and Wawota sell work wear, baby clothes, jackets, jeans, socks and sheets and emphasizes customer service. “It’s a matter of establishing a relationship with our customers and establishing it quickly, so we let them know we’re here and we care,” said King. Attention to customer service often leaves King without a lunch break before embarking on afterschool commitments involving seven of his nine children who are under age 15. “The other day, I picked my daughter up at school and as we were driv-


Pajamas and party dresses, runners and rain gear can be found at King’s Department Store, owned by Ken King. | CHRISTALEE FROESE PHOTO ing, I said to her, ‘I think I only ate bananas today’, ” he said. King has learned to balance work and family by running on little sleep. He often works at the kitchen table until 11 p.m. and wakes up by 4:30 a.m. to head to the store. “I have a pretty high energy level as a rule so I’m pretty fortunate that way. I thank God for that,” said King.

“If you’re going to be successful at this business, the time you put into it is important, but so is the time you have at home,” he said. The first store, under the Robinson’s department store banner, was established in Wawota in the mid1970s by King’s parents, Bud and Bev King, and their partner, Keith Allison.

By the late 1970s, a second store was established in Redvers. In 1985, the Carlyle location was purchased, with the three stores operating under the Robinson’s brand. By this time, Ken and his brother, Lyndon King, had joined the partnership. The Kings decided to do their buying independently with all three stores dropping the Robinson’s label

and becoming King’s Department Stores. When Lyndon left the business in 2000, Ken took over ownership of the entire operation, selling the Redvers store and placing his focus on the Carlyle business. Two years ago, he joined two buildings together to create almost 557 sq. metres of retail space. Today, the King store is focused on clothing, footwear and polar fleece sheets. 122 Main Fashion Boutique, located on one side of the store, is dedicated to ladies clothing. King credits his location at the junction of two major highways and strong local oil, agricultural and tourism economies for his success. “We’re very blessed in this community to have two Christmases. Our July sales are as good as our December sales and that’s largely due to our location near (Kenosee and White Bear) resort communities.” Marla Muhr, a local cabin owner, said it’s a short drive into Carlyle to shop while at the lake. “It gives us a place to go and get our shopping fix and it caries a variety of items for everyone who happens to be at the lake with us,” she said.


Gifted child has trouble being accepted by others SPEAKING OF LIFE



When we were told that our nine-year-old son was a candidate for a gifted program for children

who have above average abilities, we were pretty excited. We thought that his natural abilities might help him when he went off to college and prepared himself for the workforce. Little did we realize how difficult life could be for him living in a small community. He gets called everything from geek to nerd to egghead. He has been bullied by kids and has no friends. This is heartbreaking. We feel utterly hopeless. What can we do to help our son?


All schools are supposed to have anti-bullying policies in place. The problem is that your son’s abilities make him seem different from most of his classmates. Like the ugly duckling story, your son is having a difficult time fitting in and developing a sense of belonging in the school. In the Hans Christian Andersen tale, the ugly duckling is shunned not because he is ugly but because he is different. The ugly duckling is heartbroken

and wants to fit in and belong to something. He reaches out to a number of different groups in the farmyard, at neighbouring farms and other places but he gets pushed aside. One day, after he has matured, the ugly duckling stumbles across a gaggle of swans. He does not realize it yet but he looks like the swans so they accept him. Your son needs to find a place where he belongs. Your job is to encourage him to keep trying even when he has been disappointed. As tempted as

you might be, don’t try to make things happen for him. He has to make his own way. Make sure that you are there with support when he comes home from another rejection. No one ever said that the world is a fair and just place. Once your son finds his gaggle of swans, his place in the world, he will be excited. He just has to keep trying.

I’ve explored sea salt from Vancouver Island, garlic from Yorkton, Sask., garlic and foraged wild food from Love, Sask. Vancouver Island Salt Company (, located in the Cowichan Valley, produces the only Canadian fleur de sel. Founder, owner and former chef Andrew Shepherd is self taught and makes infused salts as well as the basic sea salt. He is currently working on a blue cheese infusion and a mandarin orange and lime salt. He was chosen as one of 20 food artisans for the Ace Artisan Incubator on the Food Channel.

garlic and taught them what they needed to know. In the fall of 2005, they planted their first crop. They sell about 200 pounds of garlic per day at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market and also sell in Regina. In addition, they produce a variety of garlic products. They mainly grow a hard neck variety called Music. Prairie Infusions ( in Love, Sask., is an unusual business. The company website says it specializes in the wild harvest of nontimber forest products in Saskatchewan. Owner and founder Elisabeth Poscher, a University of Arizona trained scientist, was still foraging in the winter for balsam poplar buds and chaga, a rare type of mushroom. Then she moves to tapping maple and birch trees. “I am fascinated, almost obsessed, by drylands such as the Prairies, and Saskatchewan for me was love at first sight. I’ve made my passion my business while at the same time making my tiny contribution to a more peaceful and healthy world,” said Poscher. She uses flora and fungi identification literature, herbaria, libraries, maps, microscope and spore prints as research tools in her quest, and she applies her expertise. Fiddleheads are the unfurled fronds of the ostrich fern and get their name because they resemble the head of a fiddle. They are foraged in cool, moist forest areas during late April and May. They have a delicate green flavour and are best served simply with butter or olive oil, a sprinkling of sea salt and a squeeze of lemon. Use with pastas, quiche or omelets. They are an excellent source of beta carotene, niacin and vitamin C and are low in fat and calories. According to Health Canada, fiddleheads must be cooked before eating. Steam or boil until crisp tender and serve hot or chill in ice water to use in salads. They can be frozen by blanching for two minutes, chilling and draining well before packing into freezer bags. Several varieties of wild mushrooms are foraged in late summer and early fall, but because they have a short shelf life, the mushrooms are dried. The flavour is intensified and

they need to be reconstituted in liquid before using.

Proper care will bring Easter lily back next year IN THE COUNTRY GARDEN



rairie gardeners are growing lilies never thought possible a generation ago. There are even a few trumpets in collections. The trumpet lily, Lilium longiforum, has become a favourite lily for the potted plant trade. Instead of discarding this year’s Easter lily, a trumpet lily, why not keep it growing

indoors and plant it outside in the garden? The Easter lily’s fragrance makes it a perfect pot plant. You can smell the plants as soon as you enter a shop that sells them and this perfume will be just as poignant in the outdoor garden. The large, trumpet-shaped, waxy flowers, pure white with darker anthers, are stunning. After the blooms fade, cut off the top of the stem just below the lowest flower branch. Keep the plant well watered by holding the pot over the sink and letting water run through the soil until it is thoroughly drenched. Let the pot completely drain before returning it to its display location.

Since you want to encourage the bulb to create new flower buds for next year, give it good growing conditions while still indoors. Use a balanced soluble fertilizer in the water and keep the plant in bright light. When all danger of frost has passed, plant the lily outside, but be sure to harden it off first because it may collapse and its leaves could suffer sun scorching. Place the pot outdoors in a sheltered spot, gradually increasing the time it is exposed to sun. Remove the plant from the pot and plant it about 10 centimetres deep, about five cm deeper than the bulb that was planted in the pot. The soil should be rich and have excellent drainage.

If the soil is heavy, put a handful of sand in the bottom of the planting hole. Plant the lily in part shade in an area sheltered from harsh winds during the winter. Keep it watered and fertilized during the summer, at least until the foliage yellows and dries off. Remember that the lily is out of its natural cycle and will go dormant earlier than normal. In the fall, just before freeze-up, mulch the lily with about 10 cm of straw or other mulching material. Watering and fertilizing can then resume as new growth emerges Albert Parsons has a diploma in horticulture from Guelph University.

legal entity that can achieve a variety of goals. The trust may own assets that are held for the beneficiaries of the trust, and the trust is managed by the trustee. Family trusts can be used for income tax purposes to facilitate income-splitting among family members of the revenue generated by an asset. They can be used to take advantage of the capital gains exemptions of multiple family members, which can be useful when selling a valuable asset. They can also be used to succession plan a family business. The trust, rather than the individual, is holding assets so they do not form part of the estate and probate fees can be avoided. Another advantage to trusts is privacy. If they do not form part of the estate, then the contents do not need to become public information when the will is granted probate. To take advantage of income splitting between family members, the family trust is often set up as the owner of an income-producing asset. This asset can be a family business, real estate, a large sum of invested money or other asset. Any income generated by that asset is then apportioned to the beneficiaries of the trust by the trustee. With planning, income from the asset can be apportioned to the family member with the lowest marginal tax rate, reducing the overall tax bill. There are also ways to take advantage of the capital gains exemptions of multiple family members, a useful mechanism in the disposition of assets whose value has dramatically increased since acquisition. Speak to an accountant or financial planner to determine if a family trust is an appropriate tool for you. The makeup of your assets, your future financial plans, and even the makeup of your family are factors that will help determine the appropriateness of this tool. You will also want to examine the possible usefulness of trusts in your will, as part of your broader estate plan. The costs of operating a family trust include an annual tax return because it counts as its own entity for income tax purposes, as well as the initial legal and accounting work to establish it. There are also rules governing the “deemed disposition” of the asset every 21 years, making the tax owing on its increase in value due at that time. Those income tax rules should be kept in mind at the time of setting up the trust. If you decide to proceed with setting up a family trust, have your accountant or financial adviser contact your lawyer with the appropriate suggestions and necessary instructions.

Tree cutting debate pits farmer against farmer Dispute flares in Ontario municipality | Extent of tree clearing on area farms is alarming some in the community BY JEFFREY CARTER FREELANCE WRITER

CHATHAM-KENT, Ont. — A move to halt clear cutting on wooded land in this community has pitted farmer against farmer and neighbour against neighbour. On one side are proponents of landowner rights and on the other are those who want trees in the municipality left standing. Caught in the middle is the 18 member municipal council. Councillors recently turned down by a one-vote margin a proposed bylaw that would have stopped clear cutting for six months until a permanent tree conservation bylaw could be put in place. Landowner rights advocates, including members of the Ontario Landowners Association, declared a victory, but their celebration may be premature. While woodlots continue to be bulldozed in this southwestern Ontario community, council intends to push ahead with a bylaw. “My hope is that they get all the partners at the table to get something together that’s doable for all parties,” councillor Joe Faas said. Trees covered most of ChathamKent before the arrival of Europeans, but today only 4.5 percent of the municipality is forested. About 1,500

Supporters of a temporary bylaw that would restrict clear-cutting of trees rally outside Chatham-Kent’s municipal council chambers. | JEFFREY CARTER PHOTO acres of trees have been removed over the past 18 months. “At that rate it would all be gone in 25 years,” said Don Pearson, general manager of the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority. “You’ll have nothing left on the landscape but crops. You can kiss goodbye to the honeybees, the birds and everything else. You’ll end up with just pesticides on the land.” The tree clearing can be linked to

crop prices and the increased value of farmland. According to councillor Brian King, agricultural land has been selling for as much as $20,000 per acre, which is close to double the price of two or three years ago. The municipality is among the most agriculturally based of any in Ontario. There’s little land that cannot be farmed once it is cleared, and most is classified as No. 1. Louie Roesch, past-president of the

Kent Federation of Agriculture, doesn’t plan to clear trees on his property, but he comes down hard on the side of landowner rights. He said many of the municipality’s remaining woodlots have limited value. “A lot of the woodlots with the Dutch elm disease and emerald ash borer are dead and they’re never going to recover,” he said. “It takes too long for them to come back.”

Bill O’Brien, president of an area chapter of the Ontario Landowners Association, cited crown patents, the British North America Act and other statutes that protect landowner rights. “They’re trying to take away the people’s rights, the farmer’s rights,” he said. “It’s not legal.” John Norton, the municipality’s legal council, said the landowner argument holds little weight. Chatham-Kent and neighbouring Essex County are the only two rural municipalities in southern Ontario without a tree cutting bylaw. They also have the least tree cover. A small number of farmers oppose the removal of woodlots. “We may not like everything in the bylaw. We’re just saying it’s high time to do something,” dairy farmer Rudy Zubler said. “At the bottom of it for me, it’s what do you expect from life as a human being. It’s not all about having money. For me, quality of life is about having some trees.” Theresa Johnson, a member of the Delaware First Nation, likened the situation to irresponsible parents. “People have children but if they’re not treating them right, they’re taken away. It’s the same thing with this. If people are not treating it properly, they take their property rights away,” she said.

Shareholder vote ends Agrium-Jana proxy fight Vote of confidence | Shareholders reject Jana’s board candidates BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Agrium Inc. has won a proxy battle that could have torn apart North America’s largest fertilizer retailer. Shareholders provided a vote of confidence to Agrium’s management and board, electing all 12 of Agrium’s director candidates at the company’s annual meeting last week. They simultaneously rejected a slate of five candidates nominated by Jana Partners, the company’s largest shareholder, which is pushing for big changes at the Calgary company. “The Agrium directors came out the winners in a tussle with a hedge fund from New York, but it was very close,” said Bob Schulz, a professor with the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business. The 483 shareholders who voted at the annual meeting in person or by proxy held 115 million of Agrium’s 149 million outstanding common shares. They were allowed to vote for up to 12 director candidates. Barry Rosenstein, managing partner of Jana Partners, was the most successful of Jana’s slate of candidates, garnering slightly more than 53 million shares worth of votes. The least successful Agrium nominee had a little fewer than 60 million shares voted in her favour. Excluding Jana’s shares, Jana nominees on average received less than 25 percent of the votes cast. “We thank our shareholders for their overwhelming support in this vote and throughout this extended proxy contest,” Agrium chair Victor Zaleschuk said in a news release. “Approximately 80 percent of our top 50 actively managed institutional shareholders voted for Agrium’s nominees.” Rosenstein alleges two of Jana’s candidates had enough votes to be elected to the board when voting closed April 5 but lost those seats over the weekend when votes were revoked due to intense lobbying pressure from Agrium. Jana also claims Agrium was offering up to 25 cents a share to convince shareholders to vote for its candidates. “We intend to investigate the vote changes after the voting deadline, and of course the vote buying, and to pursue all appropriate remedies,” Rosenstein said in a statement he made at the annual meeting. Walied Soliman, legal counsel for Agrium’s board of directors, addressed Rosenstein’s criticisms at the close of the meeting, according to a transcript of the meeting prepared by Seeking Alpha. He said there was no evidence to support Jana’s claims that it had two seats locked up. “The loss was pure and simple, fair and square,” said Soliman.“We understand Mr. Rosenstein is upset but reject his attacks on the board and the integrity of this process.” For the time being, Agrium appears to have successfully fended off a challenge from a disgruntled shareholder

that owns 7.5 percent of the company. It would have been easier for Jana to implement some of the changes it is seeking if the hedge fund had been successful in getting one of its directors elected to the 12-person board. It would have also created an interesting dynamic around the board table. “Suppose I said to you that I’ve got a group of chickens over here and we’ll put a fox in the henhouse. How would you feel if you were one of the chickens,” said Schulz. “The board would become very dysfunctional.” One of the big changes Jana is pushing for is for Agrium to spin off the retail side of the business and focus on manufacturing and wholesaling fertilizer products. Agrium has invested more than $4 billion in farm input outlets, starting with the 2008 purchase of UAP Holding Corp. The company is attempting to add to that network with the purchase of 232 of Viterra’s crop input businesses. That deal is still subject to approval, including a review by Canada’s Competition Bureau. The Viterra deal would give Agrium 42 percent of Saskatchewan’s agriculture retail business, which is of concern to provincial farm groups. Schulz said hedge funds like Jana

are not typically interested in the long-term viability of a company. “They think that they can take the company, break it into parts and have the sum of the parts worth more than the whole,” he said. Schulz believes that is a flawed approach in this case because Agrium’s business is highly integrated and there are financial benefits for a company that controls a product from manufacturing through retail. He speculated that in the coming months Jana will sell its position in the company to institutional investors such as Alberta Investment Management Corp., the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan or the Canada Pension Plan. However, Rosenstein said this is not the end of the story between Jana and Agrium. “We are Agrium’s largest shareholder and you will find we are just as vocal and active outside of a proxy contest as we are within it,” he said. “We will not hesitate to speak up should Agrium go back to its old ways, and we are not going away.” Two prominent Canadian agriculture industry veterans were vying for a spot on Agrium’s board. Former Canadian agriculture minister Lyle Vanclief, one of Jana’s five candidates, failed to get elected, garnering 22.7 million shares worth of votes, the lowest in the competition. Mayo Schmidt, former president of Viterra, was elected with 60.1 million shares voted in his favour. Schulz was stunned that Schmidt didn’t get more votes, considering he was head of Canada’s largest grain company, which owned the 232 Canadian crop input retail outlets Agrium is attempting to acquire. “This was surprising to me,” he said.

Sask. town plans towering oat stem

New equipment enables lab to speed feed, disease tests

The oat structure commemorates the founding of the Prairie Oat Growers Association in Ituna, Sask. BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A group working to erect a roadside attraction in Ituna feel a 10 metre tall steel oat stem is a fitting image for the east-central Saskatchewan town. “Our area is basically the largest oats growing part in Saskatchewan,” said Kris Spilchuk, an area resident who helped spearhead a committee to get approval for the structure over the last year. The oat stem, which will be located along the Canadian National Railway

line, will commemorate the founding of the Prairie Oat Growers Association in that community in 1998, she said. The organization works with provincial grower groups to fund production and agronomic research and market development for the crop. Spilchuk said an area resident is constructing the steel structure, which will be powder coated before placed in the ground. Organizers would like to unveil the finished product, a small shelter and plaque in the fall.

Fundraising is ongoing. “Whatever we want to put in there might cost us around $25,000,” said Spilchuk. The effort has received POGA’s blessing as well as financial support. Projections for the upcoming growing season show a continuing trend of declining oat acres across the country. An estimate earlier this year pegged the 2013 total around 2.6 million acres. However, Jack Shymko, a POGA director from the Ituna area, said the crop remains a staple in his part of

the province. “I definitely don’t see that in our area, but that’s a small area. I don’t think you can argue with Stats Canada, but there is a number of reasons why oat production is not declining in our area,” he said, including close proximity to elevators and a grain miller, which improve growers’ bottom lines. “The bottom line is (oats) pay, economically speaking,” he said. “Most years it places second to canola on the farm as far as net returns go.”

Prairie Diagnostic Services can diagnose disease, test for herbicide, pesticide and drug residues DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

New equipment will allow a Saskatoon laboratory to test for mycotoxins in animal feed. “We’re in constant contact with our veterinarian clients and through them to producers,” said Marilyn Jonas, chief executive officer of Prairie Diagnostic Service Inc. “That is testing that isn’t currently done in Western Canada to the extent that they would like it to be.” Mycotoxins, which are the result of mould in spoiled feed, cause problems for beef and hog producers, including abortion in individual animals. “A number of people have had to test outside of the country, into North Dakota and so forth,” said Jonas. “This is something that they would like to see us develop here in Saskatchewan … It’s in the Prairies that we see this type of problem, more so than other parts of Canada.” PDS, a non-profit corporation located in the University of Saskatchewan’s Western College of Veterinary Medicine, has used $585,000 in federal funding to buy equipment that will enhance and speed up the hundreds of tests it conducts for veterinarians and producers. Jonas said the expanded services will assist producers in meeting regulatory standards set by international customers and improve early diagnosis of diseases, including avian and swine influenza, and test for herbicide, pesticide and drug residues. “We do some export testing now, but it’s an area that we’ll be looking at doing more in,” she said. One of PDS’s tests is for anthrax, a role the company will continue to fill as the Canadian Food Inspection Agency shifts greater responsibility onto industry. The CFIA had previously investigated anthrax cases, collected samples and provided vaccines and other support to producers, but it cut off those services April 1. Agency officials have cited limited resources and a focus on more challenging diseases for the move. Producers can use vaccinations to manage the threat posed by naturally present anthrax spores, although a large outbreak in Saskatchewan in 2006 resulted in hundreds of deaths in cattle and bison. “We had hundreds of samples come in. We would do the initial testing and then samples that we felt were positive we then sent to CFIA for confirmation,” said Jonas. “The change they’ve announced has ruled out that confirmation step and so the results that our lab and other labs come up with will then be the final diagnosis, and that will be reported to the (World Organization for Animal Health) because it is a reportable disease. It just changes the dynamics a bit.”





Mislabelled foods raise safety issue Foreign imports | Inaccurately labelled imports must be stopped at the border, says food official STORIES BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Consumers and retailers are increasingly being misled by mislabeled products that are not what the labels claim they are, says the head of a food products association. Nancy Croitoru, president of Food and Consumer Products Canada, told a national food conference April 10 that bogus product claims are increasing. “We have a huge problem in Canada with counterfeit products coming in with labels that aren’t accurate,” she told a conference on a national food strategy organized by the Conference Board of Canada. In a later interview, Croitoru said the FCPC has alerted the RCMP and Canadian Food Inspection Agency about the problem. Although the

exact value of the bogus products has not been calculated, she said member companies of the association are compiling data to try to make an educated guess. “It’s absolutely a big deal and it’s a growing deal,” she said. “We have information from the RCMP that this is way more profitable than drug trafficking. So it is highly profitable and has much lower penalties.” She said stricter licensing requirements for food importers and importers contained in recently approved safe food legislation will help. However, the legislation will not take effect until the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has written the required regulations, which is a two-year project. “That’s going to be a huge help because we just don’t have the en-

forcement in this country, we don’t have the people or the dollars,” said Croitoru. “So we need to stop it before it comes into the country. They’re starting it, but we have a long way to go.” She said the improper labelling problem mainly affects imports. Foreign products often make it into Canada with labels that contain no English or French. “They don’t meet our standards,” she said. “We don’t know what the ingredients are. How do we know those products are safe? So there is a safety issue but also, we don’t have a level playing field and that has economic implications.” The issue of counterfeit products is more of a domestic problem, she said.

Empty containers with brand name labels are salvaged on the way to recycling, filled with inappropriate product and sold back to retailers. Croitoru said there was a recent example of brand name baby formula bottles being filled with rice. “This problem has serious implications for our members, for retailers and for consumers,” she said. “It is huge and growing.” Chicken Farmers of Canada recently raised the alarm about a surge in spent chicken from the United States crossing the border tariff-free and then being relabelled and sold as fresh chicken or mixed with Canadian chicken in products such as nuggets. CFC says the product took 10 percent of the Canadian chicken market last year.

Counterfeit products with inaccurate labels turn higher profits than drug trafficking, says a food industry representative. |



Ag minister touts opportunities in agriculture TORONTO — Ontario premier and agriculture minister Kathleen Wynne says one of her government’s key goals is to raise the profile of the agriculture sector. “I don’t think people are necessarily conscious of the magnitude of the agri-food sector or the challenges it is facing,” the new premier told a Conference Board of Canada conference on a national food strategy. “I want them to know that the Ontario agri-food industry is a key driver of our economy.” The agriculture and food sector is Ontario’s largest manufacturing sector, employing more than 700,000 workers and contributing $34 billion to the provincial economy. She said the need for skilled workers one of the key challenges that she wants to help industry deal with. “It is clear to me that we need a



strategy at the provincial level to connect the labour force with the labour market and how to convince young people to consider a broader range of endeavour, and that’s a challenge,” she said. Wynne said there is a bias in universities and among guidance counselors against trades and agricultural opportunities. “We need to do a better job of finding ways to shine a light on the opportunities that are available.” Wynne, who replaced former Liberal premier Dalton McGuinty after he stepped down earlier this

year, is the first Ontario premier to hold the agriculture position in more than 60 years. The Liberals, now in a minority government, have lost much of their rural political support during their almost decade-long period in power. Her first legislative proposal for the sector is a Local Food Act, which is under debate in the legislature. She said it is a key part of a broader plan to connect city consumers with the farmers who produce their food, giving farmers more stable local markets and consumers healthy local produce. In a later interview, Wynne said Ontario has put behind it the criticisms last year that the Growing Forward 2 plan reduces business risk management support for farmers. She recently signed a deal with Ottawa that will give the province $417 million over five years in inno-

vation and adaptation funding. “I’m very excited about what that can do to help the industry change and grow,” she said. “We’ve worked with the sector and we’ve worked with the agri-food sector and we think we’ve got it to a place where there will be enough resources to do the things we need to do.” Ontario is also chair of the premiers’ conference this year, and Wynne said she will use the position to promote the need for better cooperation between provinces to set more standard agricultural rules and regulations. Companies that operate nationally often complain about the need to comply with an array of conflicting requirements when they move from province to province. She said it is one of the reasons she supports efforts to create a national food strategy.

Traceability system needs co-operation in food chain TORONTO — Canadian claims of being a world leader in food industry traceability are exaggerated, say two food system specialists. “Canada has spent millions, probably billions, on creating an ineffective system,” Martin Gooch told a conference organized last week by the Conference Board of Canada. “We are likely years behind other countries.” The new Safe Food for Canadians Act includes a strengthened requirement for traceability in the food system and the new Growing Forward federal-provincial agreement commits to a national traceability system, but Gooch, who is chief executive officer of Value Chain Management International Inc., said such political initiatives are more posturing than practical. There has been little government leadership and few incentives for industry to implement an effective system. “We go a lot for the window dressing. The wrong answer to traceability is legislation,” said Gooch. Sylvain Charlebois, associate research dean at the University of Guelph, said a 2010 study of the effectiveness of traceability systems in 17 industrialized countries ranked Canada 14th, one spot ahead of the United States. Denmark was rated the best. Charlebois said part of the problem in Canada is the divided jurisdiction between federal and provincial governments. “I think industry really has had to fill the gap,” he said. However, companies are reluctant to share information on their traceability systems with competitors so that industry-wide standards can be established. Charlebois said government’s role should be to create a system of incentives that encourage companies in the food chain to work together to create an accountable traceability system. “At the moment, the government strategy is all about writing cheques, but that does not create industry buyin,” he said. Both speakers said consumers demand greater food industr y accountability and safe food but are not prepared to pay a premium for the product. “I think we are at a crossroads in the food industry,” said Charlebois. Food safety doesn’t have any currency in the marketplace, and consumers are not prepared to pay for something they think they are owed. However, a breakdown in the food safety system can impose a heavy penalty on industry when consumers turn away from a product. Mike Sadiwnyk, senior vice-president for GS1 Canada, a not-for-profit industry organization that develops global product standards, took a less gloomy view of Canada’s traceability. He said Canadian livestock producers are given credit for their traceability efforts in recent years. “I think since the mid-1990s, we have picked up our game.” However, there are traceability gaps in the overall food chain.





U.S. ethanol sector deflects call for end of mandate Opponents say mandate hurts livestock producers by pushing up corn prices WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — U.S. ethanol producers took their case for protecting the biofuel mandate directly to U.S. lawmakers last week. Growth Energy, a pro-ethanol trade group, said producers from Illinois, Colorado, Iowa and other Midwestern states planned to meet with their representatives in Congress to parry what they called a desperate attempt by oil companies to stamp out renewable fuel use. They planned to reiterate to lawmakers their arguments that the

ethanol mandate has helped reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil. “When we educate policy makers, they get it,” said Growth Energy chief executive officer Tom Buis. The clash over the future of the Renewable Fuel Standard, which requires rising volumes of biofuels to be blended into U.S. gasoline and diesel supplies, has intensified in recent weeks as refiners warned the mandate could push up costs at the pump. Member of Congress Bob Goodlatte of Virginia introduced legisla-

tion April 10 that would essentially eliminate the RFS “to help protect consumers, producers, and the American economy.” Goodlatte and fellow Republican Steve Womack of Arkansas was joined by Democrats Jim Costa of California and Peter Welch of Vermont and other lawmakers. The legislation would eliminate corn-based ethanol targets, which make up the vast majority of the biofuel mandate. It would also cap the amount of ethanol that can be blended into gasoline at 10 percent, while

The lawmakers backing the bill said the renewable fuel mandate has raised corn prices, pushing up food prices and hurting livestock producers. “The debate is over,” Costa said. “The RFS, as we know it, is not sustainable and it’s not good for American long-term energy needs.” Goodlatte said he believes support for changing the mandate is growing and that this effort may succeed where previous measures have stumbled. Prices for biofuel credits spiked earlier this year, rising from a penny a gallon in December to more than a dollar in March. Refiners are required to buy the credits, known as RINs, to comply with the federal mandate. Oil companies blame the RIN price spike on slumping demand and other factors, which have pushed refiners toward a point where the law will require the use of more ethanol than can be physically blended into the fuel supply at the 10 percent per gallon level they prefer. Refiners refer to this problem as the blend wall. Ethanol supporters blame the credit cost volatility on refiners’ opposition to allowing higher ethanol blends at the gasoline pump. “Any problems that the refiners are having with the blend wall are self made,” Buis said. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has authorized use of up to 15 percent ethanol in gasoline for cars built since the 2001 model year, or about two-thirds of vehicles on the road. Refiners say the higher blend could damage older vehicles, and gasoline station operators and oil refiners have voiced concerns they could be held liable if engines are damaged. The renewable fuel debate has divided lawmakers along regional lines, with those from grain producing states such as Iowa and Illinois strongly supporting the mandate. These lawmakers have been able to fend off attempts to pare down or rescind the fuel targets, including similar bills introduced by Goodlatte during the last Congress. Buis expressed confidence that Congress would keep the mandate intact. “We think we have the support to stop this,” Buis said.

U.S. attacks other countries’ positions at WTO Agricultural reforms | U.S. ambassador says trade proposal would result in unstable commodity and food prices GENEVA, Switzerland (Reuters) — The United States launched a blistering attack on fellow World Trade Organization member states last week for failing to do more to cut global barriers to trade. It criticized India in particular for trying to introduce a “massive new loophole.” “The time has come to speak bluntly,” U.S. ambassador Michael Punke told his counterparts at the WTO. “We must not sit idly by as the WTO’s negotiating function hurtles towards irrelevance.” Ambassadors to the 159 member WTO were meeting to review progress toward a possible deal to be signed in Bali, Indonesia, in December, which would cut red tape from customs procedures, adding as much as $1 trillion to global trade. At the insistence of developing countries, which objected to having to shoulder most of the burden of the red tape reforms, a Bali agreement would also include limited reforms to rules on food and agriculture and special treatment for poor countries. While such a deal would be a boost for the world economy, the scale of the negotiation has been massively cut back from the far more ambitious Doha Round of trade talks, which dragged on for a decade before finally collapsing in 2011. “The glint of hope today is that we still have time, though only just barely, to adjust our course. The institution we care about is in crisis, and we need to act accordingly,” Punke said. “While it is not my intention to throw bricks, I will be frank in our substantive assessment of where various issues stand,” he said. The mood has changed from hopeful to gr im over the past three months, he added. Punke called on all WTO ambassadors to seek urgent instructions from governments to try to re-energize the negotiations before the end of April. “If Bali fails, the signal that we will send, in a world full of fruitful trade negotiations, is that the WTO is the one place where trade negotiations don’t succeed.” Many trade ministries have been distracted by more pressing problems, such as the global financial crisis, or with less daunting issues, such as who should lead the WTO once director general Pascal Lamy steps down at the end of August. Lamy told the meeting there had been a lot of activity, but limited progress on substance, toward the main areas of a potential Bali agreement. He said there were still “very significant divergences” about how to change the rules on stockpiling food, as demanded by a coalition of developing countries led by India. He urged WTO members not to resort to finger pointing, but gave a pessimistic summary. “The stark reality is that the current pace of work is largely insufficient to deliver successfully in Bali,” he said. “This means that without rapid acceleration and real negotiations, it is highly probable that you will not see the deliverables you desire in Bali.”

The disputed stockpiling proposal would let poor countries buy and store farm produce and would eliminate the existing cap on agricultural subsidies. Supporters say it would help poor farmers and food security, but critics say it would do the opposite. Punke said the proposal became more worrying the more he learned about it and would be a step back, “creating a massive new loophole for potentially unlimited trade-distorting subsidies.” “This new loophole, moreover, will

be available only to a few emerging economies with the cash to use it. Other developing countries will accrue no benefit, and in fact will pay

for the consequences.” He said the proposal would result in governments pumping up food prices by buying commodities for

their stockpiles, a policy that would lead to national surpluses later being dumped on world markets and hurting the interests of non-subsidized farmers elsewhere. Punke said the U.S. was concerned about rumours of yet more proposals on agricultural reforms, which he said would only deepen the impasse. “Do we really want to watch this movie again?” he said. “Against this frustrating backdrop, how can we be anything but gravely concerned about the prospects for Bali?”

U.S. reforms aid relief WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — International anti-hunger activists expect U.S. president Barack Obama to propose major reforms to its food aid efforts in which the United States would donate cash instead of shipping U.S.-grown food to trouble spots around the world. The White House declined to comment but people who have heard the plans said the administration has discussed the strategy with interest groups and lawmakers and touted it as a way to save money while keeping the United States the global leader in food aid. Many anti-hunger groups back the new strategy, but other groups, including domestic producers who sell food to the program, oppose the change. Such a switch would be the biggest change in U.S. food aid programs since they were created during the Cold War. Funding for food aid would drop by roughly 25 percent under the proposal, said activists familiar with the plans. However, cash donations, coupled with purchases of food near trouble spots, are a speedier and less costly way to deliver assistance, backers of the so-called local purchase approach said. MARKETS

France adjusts winter wheat, rapeseed PARIS, France (Reuters) — France’s farm ministry lowered its estimate of the area sown with winter wheat and rapeseed for the 2013 harvest and put spring barley sowings sharply down on an exceptionally high level last year. The winter wheat area is pegged at 12.25 million acres, down from its February estimate of 12.3 million and now up 2.8 percent on 2012. Including a small amount of spring wheat, the soft wheat area was estimated at 12.28 million acres, up 2.2 percent on last year. For winter rapeseed, the ministry lowered its area estimate to 3.73 million acres from 3.76 million acres, now down 5.7 percent on 2012. Including small spring rapeseed sowings, the rapeseed area was put at nearly 3.76 million acres, down 5.6 percent on year. For barley, the total area was put at 3.93 million acres, down 5.5 percent compared with last year.

Fish farming hero sentenced HANOI, Vietnam (Reuters) — A fish farmer who became a cult hero in Vietnam after fighting an illegal eviction with homemade guns and mines has been jailed for five years for attempted murder. The case has stirred public anger over state-backed land grabs.

Doan Van Vuon, two of his brothers and one nephew, were given jail terms of between two and five years for injuring seven police and soldiers in northern Haiphong last January, state media reported. Land grabs, legal and illegal, are a major source of public discontent in communist Vietnam, which owns all the country’s land. The case has been a major talking point in social media and blogs, with critics calling for changes in land laws. The government offered land leases of 20 years to farmers as part of propeasant policies in the 1990s, but critics say corrupt state officials have allowed illegal seizures in return for kickbacks from businesses. The authorities in Haiphong have admitted the farmer’s eviction was unlawful and several officials are awaiting trials of their own.

Starbucks buys research farm (Reuters) — Starbucks Corp., the world’s biggest coffee chain, has bought its first coffee farm, where it plans to research leaf rust, which is devastating Central American crops, as well as harvest its own beans. Starbucks, known for trendy coffee shops, has bought a 600 acre farm in Costa Rica, which it will convert to a global agronomy research and development centre. Financial details were not disclosed. With the farm’s relatively low elevation that ranges from 335 to 490 metres, the centre plans to research the roya fungus, also known as leaf rust, which kills coffee leaves by sapping them of nutrients and lowering bean yields. This year, the blight has surprised farmers by climbing to altitudes above 1,000 metres for the first time in Central America and Peru.

Cocoa output promising LAGOS, Nigeria (Reuters) — Good rain and hot weather across most of Nigeria’s cocoa growing regions are likely to boost cocoa output by at least 30 percent in the 2012-13 season to 260,000 tonnes, the cocoa association said. That compares with last season’s 200,000 tonnes. Farmers expect better bean production during the June-July harvest. Nigeria is the world’s fourth biggest cocoa grower. It is the country’s biggest non-oil export, generating around $1 billion every year. MARKETS





Soybean output down HAMBURG, Germany (Reuters) — Concern is rising that Argentina’s


new soybean harvest now being gathered may be reduced by the double blow of heavy rains following drought, Hamburg-based oilseeds analyst Oil World said. “There is currently a wide range of (crop) estimates between 48 and 52 million tonnes, but we expect that the high end of the range will soon be reduced owing to confirmation of crop losses in the north from drought and losses in central and southern Argentina following the recent substantial rainfall and flooding,” said the market analysis firm. Argentina harvested 39.7 million tonnes of soybeans in early 2012. Oil World still forecasts Argentina’s 2013 crop at 48.5 million tonnes. Heavy rains interrupted soybean harvesting in Argentina’s south and central grains belt last week, the Buenos Aires Grains Exchange said. Large Argentine and Brazilian soybean crops being harvested


are urgently needed by global consumers following tight supplies in past months following a poor U.S. harvest in 2012 and record high soybean prices in September last year. But South American new crop exports are hampered by transport and port loading problems, despite hopes that larger shipments were on the way, Oil World said. CONSERVATION

Fungus strikes bat (Reuters) — A fungus tied to a disease devastating hibernating bats in the United States has been found in an Alabama cave system critical to the survival of endangered gray bats, U.S. government scientists said. Detection of the fungus that causes the bat disease, whitenose syndrome, in the Fern Cave National Wildlife Refuge in Alabama “could be pretty catastrophic” for the up to 1.6 million protected gray bats that hibernate there, said Paul McKenzie, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service endangered species co-ordinator. White-nose syndrome, named for the fungal residue on the muzzles of infected bats, has decimated bat populations since it was discovered in New York in 2006. It has spread to 22 states and five Canadian provinces east of the Rocky Mountains, killing more than six million bats. U.S. wildlife officials have said that experts suspect the fungus may have been brought to the United States from Europe by a person inadvertently carrying its spores on shoes, clothing or other gear. Evidence of a similar fungus has been discovered in Europe. The endangered gray bats are among seven species affected by a syndrome that targets those that hibernate in caves and abandoned mines.

KHARTOUM, Sudan (Reuters) — Egypt and Sudan want to launch joint farming, livestock and biofuel projects to help double bilateral trade, Egyptian president Mohamed Mursi said during his first visit to Khartoum. Sudan imports much of its food from Egypt, especially fruit such as strawberries and oranges. Even fruit juices and yogurt products come from Egypt. Sudan has sought to attract more investment to its agricultural sector to lower its import bill. Sudan will provide Egyptian investors with two million acres of land north of the capital Khartoum to set up an industrial complex to produce biofuel, drugs and other goods, Mursi said at the end of a two-day visit to Khartoum April 5. Both countries also plan farming and livestock projects and a 500 acre farm for agricultural research to stimulate Egyptian investments, Mursi and Sudanese president Omar Hassan al-Bashir said at a joint news conference. Egypt has sought to boost ties with Sudan, counting on Khartoum to preserve its share of the Nile, Egypt’s main source of water under past treaties. Cairo is worried that South Sudan, which seceded from Sudan in 2011, might back east African nations to the south, which want a greater share, analysts say.





U.S. sees Asia-Pacific deal as precedent setting Plans to break new ground | The pact would phase out tariffs on manufactured and agricultural goods WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — The United States hopes to use a proposed regional free trade agreement in the Asia-Pacific and another with the European Union to reshape global rules for trade. “Our goal is for high standards for the Trans-Pacific Partnership to enter the blood stream of the global system and improve the rules and norms,” vice-president Joe Biden said in a speech at the U.S. ExportImport Bank’s annual meeting. “What we’re talking about is shaping a new standard that then be-

comes the metric by which all future trade agreements are measured.” The U.S., Canada and nine other countries hope to finish the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement by the end of the year and could welcome an important 12th country, Japan, into the negotiations in coming weeks. Japan’s addition would boost the proposed agreement to one covering nearly 40 percent of world economic output. Biden said the U.S. needs to aggressively pursue new trade opportuni-

ties in the Asia-Pacific because the region could account for as much as 60 percent of world economic growth over the next five years. “The world’s economic engine has shifted eastward, and we know that it is in Asia where much of the opportunity in the 21st century will be found,” he said. The TPP pact, in addition to phasing out tariffs on manufactured and agricultural goods, aims to “break new ground” in other areas, such as establishing rules covering the trade activities of state-owned enterprises

and the movement of electronic data across borders, Biden said. The U.S. also plans to launch trade talks with the EU in June. The U.S. and the EU already have a $5 trillion trade and investment relationship, which “is far and away the world’s largest,” Biden said. The talks are an opportunity for the U.S. to tackle “behind the border” regulatory barriers that impede trade in agriculture, manufacturing and other areas, he added. The two big U.S. trade initiatives come as the Doha round of world

trade talks, launched more than 10 years ago, remains dead in the water. That has prompted countries to pursue new market openings through bilateral and regional pacts. Biden also referred to U.S. frustration with China over the theft of U.S. trade secrets through cyber attacks and other means, although he did not mention the country by name. “Increasingly we’re seeing wholesale theft of confidential business information and propriety technology through cyber intrusion. And that has to stop,” Biden said.

BRUSSELS, Belgium (Reuters) — European companies have been told they must invest more in Africa’s agricultural sector to keep pace with growing interest from countries such as China and Brazil. European Union farm commissioner Dacian Ciolos said the potential for growth in Africa’s farming sector is clear, considering it is home to a quarter of the world’s fertile land but only 10 percent of global agricultural output. However, poor transport and storage infrastructure are among the factors holding back growth in the sector, which not only threatens the continent’s food security but also presents an opportunity for private investment. “This shows the importance for the European Union to be present in the food security debate and not turn its back on Africa, just as other parts of the world become more and more interested,” Ciolos said. Greater private investment in African agriculture would also help fill the gap created by declining European public support for the sector, which has fallen by half since the 1980s, Ciolos said. “Agriculture has been sidelined in favour of other political and economic priorities, despite the challenge of global hunger,” he said. Rising global food demand in recent years has driven an increase in large-scale land investments in subSaharan Africa by foreign companies, which have been accused of land-grabbing with the help of compliant African officials. Ciolos said governments and companies have a shared responsibility to ensure that any investment respects the rights of local communities to access land, and urged a focus on investing in small farmers, who account for 70 percent of total output.






Low-cost feeding practices linked to livestock neglect

SaskWater posts surplus

Absenteeism also a problem | Producers urged to monitor livestock

Saskatchewan’s crown-owned water agency has posted a surplus of $3 million in 2012, according to its annual report. The money will help SaskWater invest in new and upgrade existing facilities, said the report. SaskWater signed agreements with two potash mines during the year: BHP Billiton and K+S Legacy Project. K+S, near Bethune, is a solution mine and needs non-potable water to extract the mineral. A new pump station on the north shore of Buffalo


A growing number of livestock neglect cases in Saskatchewan are linked to farmer absenteeism and the adoption of low-cost feeding practices, says the Saskatchewan SPCA. SPCA manager Kaley Pugh said swath grazing and bale grazing can be effective ways to reduce the costs associated with livestock production. But producers who use those techniques still need to monitor their animals and properly manage their systems. “We do see some concerns with people that are trying to use some of those lower cost feeding systems — swath grazing, bale grazing and things like that — who are not supplying the management that needs to go along with those systems,” Pugh said. “Those systems are great if they’re well managed ,but that doesn’t mean just kicking the animals out and coming back in the spring and hoping that everything is fine. If people are using the systems but they’re doing it poorly, then that’s a problem with the producers, not a problem with the system itself.” Pugh said the Saskatchewan SPCA has seen an alarming increase in the number and severity of livestock neglect cases reported this winter. Some cases involve absentee livestock owners who leave their farms for much of the winter. In other cases, absenteeism is not a factor. Some livestock producers who are trying to reduce feeding costs turn their animals out and hope they will be able to get sufficient feed from bales or swaths that are buried under several feet of snow. In rare cases, cattle are put on pasture year round and left to fend for themselves. “A number of the cattle cases that


Drought hurts Cargill earnings (Reuters) —Cargill Inc.’s quarterly earnings fell 42 percent as a historic U.S. drought pressured its meat processing operations. Cargill, one of the world’s largest privately held corporations, reported net earnings of $445 million for the fiscal 2013 third quarter ended Feb. 28, compared to $766 million for the same quarter a year earlier. Revenue for the third quarter was up one percent at $32.2 billion, the company said in a statement. Cargill, one of the nation’s largest beef processors, has been warning since last summer that the worst U.S. drought in more than half a century would hurt its meat business by raising costs for grain fed to livestock.

we’ve seen this year are ones where people have just tried to leave their cattle on pasture or on swath grazing and it just hasn’t worked out — the animals weren’t getting the nutrition they needed,” Pugh said. “Swath grazing when there’s that much snow and it’s crusted over … it just doesn’t work.” Pugh said the number of cases involving undernourished and

neglected livestock has not slowed in the past month. Higher than normal snow pack in many areas is a contributing factor. “Unfortunately, the number of (livestock cases) really hasn’t slowed down,” she said. “With the delayed thaw and lots of snow, we’ve still been seeing a lot of livestock cases, so that’s certainly a disturbing trend for us.”

Pound Lake and six kilometres of pipeline were constructed to supply the water. A spur dike with screens was also built to prevent fish from entering the system. SaskWater also supplies potable water to the mine. BHP Billiton’s project near Jansen is a conventional mine that requires a pump station, 94 kilometres of pipeline and a booster station to get water from the Zelma reservoir. The system is expected to be built by 2015. Meanwhile, SaskWater completed construction of new water treatment plants in Cupar and Gravelbourg and added the village of Hepburn and One Arrow First Nation as customers.

Genetics shortens research time on plants, insects Crop protection | Obtaining genetic markers for various insects would speed identification and help determine the best crop protection method BY MARGARET EVANS FREELANCE WRITER

LINDELL BEACH, B.C. — Understanding insect diets can eat up a lot of a researcher’s time as they try to observe behaviour and document what they find. Having a means to more quickly identify a particular insect feeding on a farmer’s valuable crop can also speed up diagnoses and develop quicker responses to fight the bugs. New genetic techniques that develop what researchers call a genetic barcode, small DNA regions within an organism’s genome, could soon be available to provide speedier identification. Scientists with the Smithsonian Institution recently developed DNA extraction techniques to profile the DNA inside the stomachs of 20 species of rolled leaf beetles in Costa Rica and to study 33 species of flowering plants in the ginger and banana order zingiberales on which the beetles eat and lay their eggs. Carlos Garcia-Robledo, a postdoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian and lead author of the study published in the journal PLOS ONE, said the new method improves understanding of the interrelationships between plants and insects. Researchers extracted not only DNA from the stomachs, but also from the actual insects, then used DNA markers to specify each insect and each plant to profile the diet. After extracting the DNA , researchers used baseline data gathered through years of field observation to test the accuracy of the DNA method. Effective pest management Garcia-Robledo said the study was designed to confirm a methodology that would be efficient and timeeffective for environmental management and for the management and protection of valuable commercial crops. “Scientists proposed several DNA barcodes, as not every gene works for all plant groups. The first step is to determine if a given DNA barcode works for the plant group of interest. After identifying (the DNA barcode), it is possible to understand the diets of a whole community of insects. In habitats of difficult access, such as the forest canopy, this method will prove invaluable.” Two years ago, the need for a quick identification method became apparent with the appearance of an insect in the fruit growing region of Washington state. An unrecognized fruit fly was found feeding on crabapples in Kennewick close to the heart of Washington’s $1.5 billion apple-growing region.

The discovery was alarming because of the possibility that a fruit fly not associated with crabapples had expanded its usual diet to include the fruit. It also raised the question about the dietary expansion of other flies known to be pests, in particular the invasive apple maggot fly. Larvae of the fruit fly feeding on crabapples were sent to research entomologists at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Yakima Agricultural Research Laboratory in Wapato, Wash., where they were raised over four months to adulthood and visually identified as rhagoletis indifferens. One larva was sent to the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, where within two days biological sciences professor Jeffrey Feeder identified it through genetic analysis as the same species. “R. indifferens is a major pest of sweet and sour cherries in Washington and Oregon but is not of concern to apple growers, and no R. indifferens has been reared from apple,” he said. “The crabapples are smaller and more like cherries, so it is easier to see how R. indifferns may have chosen to oviposit (lay eggs) into it. So while we cannot rule out the possibility that the cherry fly could someday switch to apple, it is not of relatively great concern.” The observation of the changing diet of the cherry fly is a concern to watch for in a range of invasive, problematic insects such as the apple maggot fly. “Right now, the apple maggot has not been reared from a commercial orchard, but it is beginning to encroach nearer to them,” said Feder. The expansion of the apple maggot fly includes the B.C. Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island and concerns are growing that it might spread to the commercial apple growing regions in the Interior. The refinement of the DNA barcodes allows identification not only from the insects themselves, but from their eggs and larvae. “In addition to plant DNA barcodes, we also obtained for each beetle the animal DNA barcode CO1,” said Garcia-Robledo. “Using this DNA barcode, it is possible to determine the species of eggs and larvae. These results will be published soon.” He said other laboratories are interested in using the methods developed at Smithsonian. “These methods can be used to determine, for example, if an adult insect found in a crop field is actually feeding on a plant and also to associate eggs and larvae with adults. This information is fundamental for any integrated pest management program.”

Canada’s position could raise eyebrows both in the WTO’s Geneva headquarters and in Canada, at least on the issue of tariffs. For decades, Canada has couched its support for trade liberalization with the caveat that like most countries with trade sensitive sectors, Canada will continue to defend protection for dairy, poultry and egg sectors. In a statement on what Canada expects in a new director general, trade minister Ed Fast left little room to defend tariffs for anyone, calling protectionism a “toxic threat” to the world economy. “First and foremost, as a country at the forefront of trade liberalization, Canada will support the selection of a candidate who can marshal common cause against the protectionism that remains a toxic threat to the global economic recovery,” he said. “Accordingly, the successful candidate must be a champion in the fight against tariff and non-tariff barriers around the world.” Meanwhile, the federal government continues to assure supply managed sectors that it will continue to defend tariffs in the 200 to 300 percent range. Ministers next gather in Bali, Indonesia, in early December to discuss whether the Doha Round of world trade talks, which has been bogged

down since 2005, can be resurrected. By then, a new world trade leader, to be chosen from nine candidates nominated by their governments, will have replaced two-term director general Pascal Lamy Sept. 1. Fast suggested in his statement that in light of the continuing Doha stalemate, the new director general should try to reinvigorate the talks while recognizing that many countries have moved on to regional trade negotiations. “In light of the continued impasse in the Doha Round, Canada has pursued an aggressive bilateral and regional trade agenda, as have many other WTO members,” he said. “The next director-general must possess a clear plan to re-establish the WTO as an institution that can credibly advance multilateral trade liberalization efforts in the interests of all its members.” He said that rather than worry about the impact that growing bilateral and regional trade negotiations could have on the credibility of the multilateral system, the next director general must find ways to harness the successes of bilateral and regional initiatives to reinvigorate the multilateral trading system. He also argued that the next WTO head should embrace a recent initiative to involve only select WTO members, mainly developed countries, in negotiations over a Trade in Services agreement. The idea of concluding specific agreements outside a comprehensive deal that includes all issues and all countries is controversial within the organization. Fast promised to be in Bali to present Canada’s positions personally.


GM wheat concerns identified SUCCESS IN WHEAT,



Government, grain handlers and life science companies continue to look into the possibility of introducing genetically modified wheat in Canada. The Biotech Wheat Working Group has already conducted an “environmental scan” of the wheat industry, which is aimed at identifying issues that would need to be addressed before GM wheat could be commercialized in Canada. Issues identified included market acceptance, best management practices, bulk handling capabilities, low level presence policies, regulatory issues and the industry’s ability to segregate GM and non-GM varieties. The group, made up of representatives from government, grain companies, grower organizations, and biotechnology companies, is also preparing a questionnaire organizations can use to assess and monitor customer perceptions of GM wheat. Preliminary responses to the questionnaire are likely to be available within six to eight months.

“Really, it (the BWWG) is looking at issues that surround the introduction of GM wheat if and when it happens,” said group co-chair Barry Senft, who also serves as chief executive officer of Grain Farmers of Ontario. BWWG was formed two years ago to look at the implications of introducing GM wheat and begin a process to identify key issues. It is co-chaired by Senft and Chantelle Donahue, director of corporate affairs with Cargill Canada. Senft, originally from Lipton, Sask., has held a variety of executive positions in the private and public sectors over the past 25 years, including second vice-president of Saskatchewan Wheat Pool in the mid-1990s, chief commissioner of the Canadian Grain Commission from 1997 to 2002 and executive director of the Canadian International Grains Institute. The group reports to the Grain Roundtable, whose membership includes more than 40 organizations, including producer groups. General farm organizations are not represented, but Senft said participation on the committee is open to any organization that sits on the roundtable.





Striving for better forecasts New techniques may improve ability to forecast weather events CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — Last year’s drought in the United States, which was the country’s worst since the Dust Bowl years of the 1930s, sent world food prices to record highs. The long, dry summer also cost the government a record $16 billion in crop insurance payments. The Mississippi River shrank in the heat, and barge traffic slowed to a trickle. U.S. weather forecasters never saw it coming. That’s why this year, as spring seeding begins, meteorologists are adjusting forecasting techniques, trying to learn from what went wrong last summer and using 2012 weather data for what they hope will be an improved early alert system. “The drought of 2012 was such a singularity, only repeated a few times in a century,” said Harvey Freese, a top private weather forecaster. “The temperature and precipitation departures were two standard deviations from normal. The year 1934 did begin to show up in our analog comparisons of past years, but we probably only dared to think about the possibility.” Forecasters and their customers say improvement is needed over what happened during the first half of 2012. “People are calling it a ‘flash drought’ because it developed so

suddenly,” Siegfried Schubert, a senior research scientist for NASA, said as he recalled the dry season that started in the winter, persisted through the spring and summer and continues in the western corn belt and southern U.S. Plains. “I don’t think there were any models that predicted that.” Well-established agricultural forecasting services such as MDA EarthSat Weather, Commodity Weather Group, World Weather and FreeseNotis were caught by surprise. Commodity traders and grain analysts pay for forecasts that can be reliable as far as three months in advance, but none of the firms gave advance notice of last year’s drought during the winter or early spring. Meteorologists rely on esoteric weather conditions to forecast longterm U.S. weather trends, such as the La Nina and El Nino phenomena tied to changes in southern Pacific Ocean surface temperatures. A year ago, forecasters said the second strongest La Nina in history faded in the winter of 2012 when sea surface temperatures began to warm. Meteorologists took that as a sign that the U.S. crop belt should experience a fairly normal growing season, but they ignored atmospheric data that might have tipped them to the impending drought.

“Even though the oceans were acting like they were not in La Nina any more, the atmosphere was acting like we were,” said Joel Widenor, agricultural director for Commodity Weather Group. “Unfortunately, we didn’t pay attention to that soon enough to adjust our forecast last spring. It’s something we’re watching this year. We think it was a pretty big factor last year.” Widenor calls it the GLAAM factor. He has tweaked his forecasting techniques for this season using the global atmospheric angular momentum, an atmospheric index that measures the spinning of the Earth and its effect on weather. Hoping to catch signs of a drought earlier, he is also watching the weekly U.S. Drought Monitor, which tracks soil moisture and water temperatures in the northern Pacific Ocean, off the coast of Baja California and the northwestern Atlantic Ocean. Don Keeney, EarthSat’s senior meteorologist, said his firm is studying previous big drought years and comparing them with current patterns, looking for any sign that drought-prone conditions will continue. However, meteorologists and climatologists, who study the interaction of the sun, the atmosphere and the Earth, readily admit 2013 will be

another tricky year to predict because La Nina and El Nino patterns this winter have been neutral. It boils down to educated guesswork or hunches based on years of experience. Iowa State University climatologist Elwynn Taylor looked at the La Nina trends in March 2012 and updated his prediction for a major drought to a 50-50 probability from 30-50. He said the western Midwest is set up for another hot, dry summer this year, citing La Nina history. Rock hard soil several feet below the surface are another flag the droughty conditions could continue this season, he added. Taylor’s outlook aligns with recent comments from Nebraska state cli-

matologist Al Dutcher, who said that state’s 10 million acre corn crop stands or falls on irrigation as well as rain. In fact, most weather forecasting models, including the U.S. government’s, are now leaning toward a hot, dry summer for the U.S. crop belt, especially west of the Mississippi River. However, last year’s failures have left grain market analysts worrying about this year’s forecasts. They need to balance the longer trends with the way a sudden shower can affect markets day to day. “We all know that the long-term guidance is not as reliable as nearterm patterns,” said Rich Feltes, an

analyst at giant broker RJ O’Brien. “We also know nothing is more riveting to the markets than what the last 24 hours precipitation and temperatures have been relative to expectations.” While analysts say calculators to crunch data on long-term patterns are important, they must always give greater weight to short-term weather forecasts because most commodity traders think short-term. Volatile grain markets reflect that reality. “Weather forecasts 12 to 15 days out are not terribly reliable. The forecaster we use points that out constantly,” said Anne Frick, oilseed analyst at Jefferies Bache in New York. “For three days out, very high confi-

dence. Up to seven days: confidence. Beyond the seven to 10 day period, it gets quite iffy.” Schubert, who heads a group of scientists researching weather forecasting models, said last year’s poor performance should not cause anyone to dismiss long-term forecasting altogether. He said a review of NASA data shows that one of its research models tracking soil moisture did begin picking up signals of extreme drought by early May. “Even if we can’t predict an event like last year’s drought, perhaps we can predict the probability of an event happening,” Schubert said. “Ultimately, that is our goal.”

OSLO, Norway (Reuters) — Climate change could quickly get worse if huge amounts of extra heat absorbed by the oceans are released back into the air. Scientists announced the finding after unveiling new research that shows oceans have helped mitigate the effects of warming since 2000. Heat-trapping gases are being emitted into the atmosphere faster than ever, and the 10 hottest years since records began have all taken place since 1998. However, the rate at which the Earth’s surface is heating up has slowed since 2000, causing scientists to search for an explanation for the pause. Experts in France and Spain said the oceans took up more warmth from the air around 2000. That would help explain the slowdown in surface warming but would also suggest the pause may be only temporary and brief. “Most of this excess energy was absorbed in the top 700 metres of the ocean at the onset of the warming pause, 65 percent of it in the tropical Pacific and Atlantic oceans,” they wrote in the journal Nature Climate Change. Lead author Virginie Guemas of the Catalan Institute of Climate Sciences in Barcelona, Spain, said the hidden heat may return to the atmosphere in the next decade, stoking warming again. “If it is only related to natural vari-

ability, then the rate of warming will increase soon,” she said. Caroline Katsman of the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute, an expert who was not involved in the latest study, said heat absorbed by the ocean will come back into the atmosphere if it is part of an ocean cycle such as the El Nino warming and La Nina cooling events in the Pacific Ocean. She said the study broadly confirmed earlier research by her institute, but it was unlikely to be the full explanation of the warming pause at the surface because it applied only to the onset of the slowdown around 2000. The pace of climate change has big economic implications because almost 200 governments agreed in 2010 to limit surface warming to less than 2 C above pre-industrial levels, mainly by shifting from fossil fuels. Surface temperatures have already risen by 0.8 C. Two degrees is widely seen as a threshold for dangerous changes such as more droughts,

mudslides, floods and rising sea levels. Some governments and climate change skeptics argue that the slowdown in the rising trend shows less urgency to act. Governments have agreed to work out a global deal to combat climate change by the end of 2015. Last year was the ninth warmest since records began in the 1850s, according to the United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization, and 2010 was the warmest, just ahead of 1998. Apart from 1998, the 10 hottest years have all been since 2000. Guemas’s study showed that natural La Nina weather events in the Pacific around 2000 brought cool waters to the surface that absorbed more heat from the air. In another set of natural variations, the Atlantic also soaked up more heat. “Global warming is continuing, but it’s being manifested in somewhat different ways,” said Kevin Trenberth of the U.S. National Center for Atmospheric Research. Warming can go to the air, water, land or to melting ice and snow. He said warmth is spreading to ever deeper ocean levels, and pauses in surface warming could last 15 to 20 years. “Recent warming rates of the waters below 700 metres appear to be unprecedented,” he and colleagues wrote in a study last month in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

India’s wheat price too high for buyers Proposed ag cuts save $1 billion $300 a tonne floor price | Warehouses must be cleared to make room for new crop NEW DELHI, India (Reuters) — India managed only a marginal cut in bulging wheat stockpiles in March despite efforts to step up exports. The development increased pressure on the world’s second largest producer of the grain to find ways to boost shipments and make room for a new harvest. Wheat stocks in government warehouses were 24.2 million tonnes April 1, down nearly 11 percent from a month earlier, government sources said. India has refused to sell its wheat below $275 per tonne, but it may have to reduce that level because global prices have fallen and it must clear space for another bumper harvest arriving soon to protect it from

rodents and rain. New Delhi uses the stocks to distribute cheap grain to its half a billion poor people and also holds some in inventory for emergencies. It has offered 4.5 million tonnes of wheat via tenders, of which 3.6 million have been contracted for exports. However, its two latest tenders found no takers among private exporters, who did not wish to bid above $300 a tonne, the floor price fixed by the government. “There has been absolutely no response in the last couple of tenders, which is like a slap to the export policy, which needs to be reviewed against the backdrop of lower global prices,” said a trader with the Indian

arm of a global trading company. New Delhi has also offered another five million tonnes direct to private traders. Direct sales have failed to take off as well, and the government is now considering reducing minimum price levels, sources have said. Traders believe the government will have to cut the floor price to lure back private trading companies. On March 28, the benchmark Chicago Board of Trade wheat contract posted its biggest weekly decline since June 2012. It has recovered slightly since. India’s rice inventory on April 1 was 35.5 million tonnes, almost unchanged from 35.8 million tonnes in the previous month.


WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — U.S. president Barack Obama has proposed reducing the most expensive part of the U.S. farm safety net by cutting the subsidy to farmers for buying crop insurance. The government now pays 62 cents of every $1 of insurance premium. Farmers collected a record $16.2 billion in payments on 2012 crops, chiefly due to drought. They paid $4 billion for the policies and the government added $7 billion. Obama recently proposed a reduction of three percentage points in the federal subsidy for policies with higher levels of coverage, which are the most popular policies, and a reduction of two points in the subsidy to buy harvest price policies, which pay more if commodity prices go up during the year. Farm income is forecast at record levels, said the White House, so it is time to adjust farm supports. As part of that, it proposed eliminating the $5 billion a year “direct

payment” subsidy that is paid regardless of need. O b a ma s a i d t h e g ov e r n m e nt should also pay less of the administrative cost for the privately run system, and insurers should be held to a “reasonable rate of return” on crop insurance, forecast to cost $9 billion a year. Roughly $1 billion a year would be saved under the administration’s proposal. Leaders of the House and Senate agriculture committees oppose major changes in the federally subsidized crop insurance system. “We need to make sure it is affordable to farmers,” Senate agriculture chair Debbie Stabenow said. Last year, the Senate voted to reduce the premium subsidy for farmers with more than $750,000 a year in adjusted gross income and to require farmers to practice soil conservation to qualify for subsidized insurance. The House farm bill omitted those reforms.

Kazakhstan exports hit record despite severe drought ASTANA, Kazakhstan (Reuters) — Kazakhstan exported 5.2 million tonnes of grain between July 1, 2012, and April 1, 2013, compared to 8.3 million tonnes in the same period the previous year, said a senior agriculture ministry official. The country, which is central Asia’s largest grain producer, could potentially export a further two million

tonnes of grain by the end of the current marketing year, said Sagintai Zhumazhanov, head of the ministry’s land development department. Commenting on reports that Egypt was considering resuming wheat imports from Kazakhstan after a two-year hiatus, Zhumazhanov said: “If they wish, we are ready to sell. I have told you about our remaining

potential ... so they are welcome to partake of this chunk of the pie.” Zhumazhanov said Russia and the European Union had become important new destinations for Kazakh grain exports this marketing year. Kazakhstan suffered a severe drought last year but still exported a record 12.1 million tonnes of grain in the last marketing year.

“IT’S WHAT WE DO” Quality Undercarriage & Repair Parts for use on equipment manufactured by: Cat, Case, Deere, Hitachi, Hyundai, Kobelco, Komatsu, Volvo, and other fine manufacturers.

Sealed & Greased Excavator Chains

Excavator links are lubricated using “Extreme Pressure Synthetic Grease” and fitted with the latest style Polyurethane Seal Groups to maximize lubricant retention and insure long life.

Sealed & Lubricated Dozer/Loader Chains

Forged Links

ITR Links are forged from Boron Steel, quenched, tempered, and induction hardened using the latest automated link hardening equipment to ensure excellent wear resistance under even the most severe working conditions.

Lubricated Dozer Chains are sealed with Polyurethane Seals and Metal rings to extend operating life and to eliminate the possibility of dry joints between “west turns”.

Pins & Bushings

Pins and bushings are critical to track chain wear life and are manufactured and dimensionally matched to ensure a perfect fit and sealing and joint integrity. Outside Surface Hardness is > Rockwell C58 to a depth of > 4mm with a core hardness of > Rockwell C34.

Chain Assembly

Lubricated Chains are assembled on fully automated chain assembly lines. Seal installation, Plug introduction and Oil fill quantities are 100% computer controlled and every joint is individually pressure tested to eliminate the possibility of leakage during working conditions. Min / Max interference fit tolerances between the Pins, Bushings and Links are maintained automatically by min/max press force specifications. This process minimizes link breakage and pin/bushing drifting.

Meat access crucial issue in Canada-EU talks Europe is large beef, pork market | Canada will be trying to break through trade barriers that have kept its meat out of EU STORIES BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

They like raising pigs and cattle. They also like eating pork and beef. The way those two factors play out will help determine how much Canadian pork and beef is allowed into the European Union if a successful free trade deal is approved, says Canada’s chief agricultural trade negotiator. “One of the most competitive producers in the world is Denmark,” Frederic Seppey told reporters after his speech at the Canada Grains Council’s annual meeting. “But still it’s the largest consumer of pork in the world.” Seppey said Canada wants more access for its pork and beef in any free trade deal signed with the EU. Such a deal is close to being finalized, he added, but pork and beef access are sensitive issues for some EU countries. There is Denmark and its hog industry, but the French are also keen to support its cattle producers and worry about imports of cheaper North American beef. As well, the Irish government has warned against easy access for North American beef. “They produce high quality beef but with a higher cost structure than we have in Canada,” said Seppey. Canadian exports are restricted by a number of import controls and tariffs, including phytosanitary issues that Canada does not accept as being scientifically justified. Seppey said laying out a clear set of rules for free access is key, but that’s where things get complicated. For example, “rules of origin” will define if meat from an animal is Canadian or not, depending on how much of its life it spent in Canada. Canada is arguing that any animal

Canada is vying for more access to European beef and pork markets as part of a larger European Union-Canada trade agreement. | REUTERS/LASZLO BALOGH PHOTO slaughtered and processed in Canada should qualify as Canadian, while Europeans might want to insist on an animal having spent its entire life in Canada to qualify as Canadian. Seppey said it’s difficult to get a clear sense of what European countries are saying because Canadian negotiators deal with the European

Commission, which represents the more than two dozen EU members. “It is always challenging to see what is going on behind,” said Seppey. He said negotiating better access is important because Europe is a gigantic market but imports only a small amount of pork. Canada used to export more pork

to Romania than to the entire EU, until Romania joined the EU. Now Canadian exports to Romania have collapsed. However, even though Canadian meat exporters face resistance from European producers when trying to sell into Europe, they can be allies when trying to get into other mar-

kets, Seppey said. For example, Denmark sometimes makes common cause with Canada. “They are a key competitor, and we can even work together with the Danes when it comes time to get across the border into Japan because we have common interests,” he said.

Canola groups work together to promote key issues

Message contrary to perception | Trade negotiator says EU plays by the rules


Many prairie farmers probably think of the European Union as one of Canada’s worst trading partners. The perception is that the bloc throws up unjustifiable barriers against crops and meat for domestic political purposes. However, Canada’s chief agricultural trade negotiator told the Canada Grains Council annual meeting that the EU is actually one of the most open markets that Canada sells into, and exporting there should get easier if free trade negotiations are successful. Frederic Seppey said not only do Europeans tend to follow the rules that they agree to, but it’s likely the Canada-EU agreement w ill be approved. Europe wants to establish trade deals with a number of developed countries, so succeeding with Canada is important for them as well, Seppey said. “This is the first time, with Canada, that they are truly negotiating with a

developed country,” he said. “If they walk away, say ‘we drop it,’ then they would have to start from scratch (with other negotiations, including upcoming ones with the United States). It calls upon the ability of the European Union to conclude an agreement with a developed country. “ Prairie farmers have been hurt by European restrictions on pork, beef, flax and canola, with EU regulators often saying Canadian products contravene various EU rules on genetic modification or health safety standards. Those disputes are vexing but can sometimes be worked through, Seppey said. An agreement with the EU on free trade would provide a more dependable platform for a growing import-export relationship. Other markets are less dependable, even if their tariffs, phytosanitary controls and other complications

aren’t always more extreme. For instance, India’s import tariffs aren’t usually extremely high, but the government doesn’t always enforce its import costs and controls. It uses a “flexible” system that applies or removes costs for “policy objectives,” making market accessibility hard to anticipate. “It is one of the most, let’s say, sophisticated regulatory regimes in the world,” said Seppey. Other markets have preferential access to Canada’s competitors. Morocco has a free trade deal with the United States, which makes it easy for the U.S. to undercut Canada for durum sales. South Korea also has a bilateral trade deal with the U.S., which is why most of Canada’s pork market there has been lost. Japan has many trade barriers to imports, but with that market Canada is ahead of key competitors, such as the U.S. and Australia.


Two national canola organizations have forged closer ties with one another. The Canola Council of Canada said it is “extending a full range of services” to the Canadian Oilseed Processors Association (COPA). Council vice-president Jim Everson is taking on additional duties as executive director of COPA and COPA president Bob Broeska is retiring. “The goal here is just to align our activities better and to just maximize the value of both associations,” said Everson. The two associations will continue to operate as stand-alone organizations with separate boards. COPA represents the country’s crushers while the council is a value chain organization working on behalf of crushers, exporters, producers, seed development compa-

nies and crop input companies. Everson said the two groups have overlapping objectives when it comes to lobbying the federal government on regulatory, market access and trade policy issues. “It works to the benefit of producers if we can, in Ottawa, speak with a co-ordinated, single, strong voice,” he said. Some council board members also sit on COPA’s board. “The two associations see things very much the same way,” said Everson. However, there are also important differences. COPA is more focused on the oil and meal side of the business. Everson said COPA will be able to use some of the council’s vast resources, including its expertise in communication and trade policy. There are no plans to reduce staff at either organization. “What we really want to do is align activities as well as we can,” he said.

Haywire gene causes chickens to pig out Failure to send fullness signal | Selective breeding changes circuitry in the brain’s feeding centre controlling food intake BY MARGARET EVANS FREELANCE WRITER

LINDELL BEACH, B.C. — British researchers may have figured out why some chickens don’t know when to stop eating. Overeating in the chicken industry leads to excessive weight, which can interfere with their ability to reproduce and affect a farmer’s bottom line. A study at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute has discovered a gene that does not respond to the signal of fullness. That signal would normally be sent from the stomach to the brain with a simple response to stop eating. “What we have shown is that the animals that carry the high growth allele do not respond to the signal of fullness,” said Ian Dunn, a research scientist in avian biology whose findings were published in the American Journal of Physiology, Endocrinology and Metabolism. “The normal response when you inject the substance CCK is a reduction in food intake, but in these high growth individuals this does not happen.” The gene in question is the protein cholecystokinin, or CCKAR, which is a receptor for CCK, a secretion in response to food reaching the gut. One of its functions is to send a nerve signal to the brain to indicate fullness, which should trigger the bird to stop eating.


The research suggests that this genetic shift to not recognize fullness may have its origins centuries ago when chickens were domesticated and early breeders selected for larger sizes. “We use the term ‘during domestication,’ by which we mean not something critical to the original domestication event but something that has developed when farmers have decided to breed for a particular conformation,” said Dunn. “Perhaps chickens were bred larger for fighting. In general, the larger the breed the greater there is the occurrence of the marker for the high growth allele.” Researchers cross-bred a fast-growing meat chicken with a relatively slow-growing one and then looked at the workings of the protein in both birds as well as the resultant crossbred fowl. They found that some birds were better equipped than others with the target protein, making them more effective at sending the signal at the appropriate time. “What we have shown is that there

is no difference to the actual protein between the high growth and low growth allele,” he said. “What is different is how much of it is present. There is less in the high growth animals, which we assume explains the difference in their response to (the secretion) CCK.” He said that in the quest for largeness, the breeds were being unknowingly selected for the different response to CCD’s effect. Researchers were also able to show that the reduction in the level of protein also affected the chicken’s natural body weight. However, understanding all the implications of the protein is still a work in progress. “We imagine it should alter secretions of digestive enzymes, but we still don’t know yet and we have to prove that.” Dunn is uncertain whether chicken breeders will shift their breed lines to work with the genetics and help keep levels of this protein at a point where it maximizes its signal strength. This should work in theory, but “I think the reality is no one is going to give up the growth potential of this locus,” he said. “It tells us more what has happened in the past regarding selection.” Dunn said the protein is also in the brain as part of the circuitry controlling food intake. That’s because the systems that control body functions were preserved in the distant sites as vertebrates evolved from simple

organisms with simple gut and reproductive systems to ones with nervous systems remote from the gut. The protein works at two levels in the brain as well as in the gut to control feed intake. What Dunn found interesting was that genes in the brain’s feeding centre were altered between high growth and low growth chickens. Historically, it appears that this effect was present in the heavy chicken breeds from which modern broilers are descended. Equally interesting is the fact that all species have a genetic variation in the interpretation of biological signals relating to feeling full. They can regulate their appetites to take in the right amount of proteins and fats to maintain body weight, but as chickens have demonstrated, external influences such as selective breeding can change the level of those biological signals. So does this same protein level issue apply to other domestic animals? “It certainly looks as if this is the case in pigs, from work done here some years ago … although the function was not worked out. It just remained an association,” Dunn said. “I believe from the literature that there is a good chance size in horses and cattle and possibly people may also be influenced by this locus, but there is a lot of work to do to prove that association in the way we have

It died of natural causes Sept. 6, 1992. • Matilda was a fourteen-ounce hen and was the first chicken to receive the title of World’s Oldest Living Chicken from Guinness World Records. It died in 2006 at 16 years. • The average hen lays 300 eggs a year. • The record for multiple egg yolks in one egg is nine. • A chicken needs to eat about four pounds of feed to make a dozen eggs. for chickens.” Whether feed manufacturers can develop chicken grower pellets that would reduce excessive growth is still speculation. “We don’t know, is the real answer,” he said. “However, we believe it is possible.” He says the diets are not economical due to increased production and transportation costs. Researchers are also evaluating how different diets may improve satiety and if diluted diets work. “This new work is an important part of understanding the factors we need to measure and of course how different birds may respond.”





Federal NDP renews support for supply management Party policy | Supply management tops ag agenda at convention BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

MONTREAL — New Democratic Party delegates pledged renewed support for supply management in their only approved agricultural resolution at the party’s biennial convention. Delegates also called on the Conservative government to reverse its decision to withdraw from a United Nations convention on drought prevention. That was the extent of public debate about agricultural, prairie or rural issues on the floor of the April 12-14 NDP convention, which was heavy on speeches and leader appearances and light on policy debate. “There is concern about rural issues, obviously, among many of the delegates here,” Pat Martin, one of just three prairie party MPs, said in an interview. “But there is a limited time for policy discussion and I guess the priority resolutions reflect where the votes are.” There were several agriculture and rural resolutions proposed by riding associations that did not make the cut to be debated. Getting the supply management resolution on the floor and approved was a priority for agriculture critic

Malcolm Allen. It was one of six brought forward in the limited time available for economic polic y debate. The resolution was an attempt to correct a gaffe in the 2011 NDP election campaign platform, which omitted a commitment to support supply management despite the party’s long-term support. Dairy Farmers of Canada pointed out that the NDP was the only party not to mention supply management in its platform, Allen said. At first he told them they were wrong, Allen told the convention. Then he discovered they were correct. “It was an oversight,” Allen told the convention. “We can’t afford an oversight like that.” He said planned new trade talks and a steady attack from domestic critics means it’s important for the party to show its continued support. He called for a unanimous vote. “At this moment in the media, the system is under attack,” said Allen. “We New Democrats need to push back.” He did not quite receive the unanimity he requested. Almost all of the 2,100 delegates supported the resolution, but a few voted no and a handful signalled that they had abstained.

The emergenc y resolution to demand that Canada rejoin the UN convention on drought prevention and desertification came after leader Thomas Mulcair used a session at the convention to illustrate the recent Canadian decision to withdraw as an example of the Conservative government’s “withdrawal” from the world. “We became the only country in the world to withdraw from a UN convention against drought,” he said to boos from the crowd. Delegates from across the country had submitted many agricultural resolutions that did not make the cut. There was a proposal from southwestern Ontario to establish an expert committee led by farm organizations to study how to streamline and harmonize federal, provincial and municipal farm rules across the country. Winnipeg Centre proposed a resolution that funding for the Canadian Food Inspection Agency be increased to make sure “the health and safety of Canadians (is put) before corporate profits.” Quebec members proposed that traceability in the food system be mandatory and that labelling for genetically modified food be mandatory.

Party mulls over ways to pick up western seats NDP strategy | Some think new electoral boundaries could improve performance in Saskatchewan BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

MONTREAL — New Democratic Party activists say they are developing a plan to improve party results in the 2015 election after more than a decade of decline on the Prairies. Part of the hope rests on proposed electoral boundary changes in Saskatchewan — creating urban, rural and some mixed ridings — that New Democrats hope will produce at least two urban wins, the first since 2000. “We won a third of the vote in 2011 and that translated into no seats,” said Winnipeg MP Pat Martin. “A third of the vote should produce a third of the (14) seats.” The other part of the strategy is a series of meetings across the Prairies trying to find out why the NDP has fallen out of favour in the region. The NDP held 10 of 14 Saskatchewan seats and a majority of Manitoba seats a generation ago. In 2011, the party won two seats in Manitoba and one in Alberta. “We have to show that in the next election we’re not just ready to take on Canada but more specifically the

Prairies, which is the area where we were born and where we still have a lot of work to do,” MP Niki Ashton of Churchill, Man., said during the NDP national convention last weekend. “We need to be speaking to the concerns and aspirations that people in the new West have.” She said the result will be a report or resolution to the next NDP national convention in Edmonton in 2015, on the cusp of the next election. NDP national president Rebecca Blaikie from Winnipeg said in an interview the party must be willing to invest the same kind of resources and energy in winning back the West that it invested in Quebec during the last election, when it scored a major breakthrough to become the majority party in the province. “I can’t explain why we have lost support because I’m from Manitoba, where we have been in government for 12 years, and yet our federal seats have gone down,” Blaikie said. “There seems to be no rhyme nor reason, but we have concentrated on other regions like Quebec and perhaps we need the same effort in the West to bring the party back to its roots.”

Canadian Western Agribition posted a profit of $591,750 in 2012. |



Agribition founder leaves donation to scholarship fund BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Canadian Western Agribition earned a strong net profit of $591,750 last year, but last week’s announcement was eclipsed by a story about the show’s generational impact. The estate of Barry Andrew, one of the five show founders and president in 1980-81, included a surprise bequest of $25,000 for the show’s scholarship fund. His son, Reed, presented the cheque just ahead of the annual general meeting, at which he was elected president, marking the first time a second generation president has been elected. “To our knowledge, this is the very first ever donation of this kind to this organization,” Andrew said. Barry Andrew died at age 84 last December. He farmed and raised purebred and then commercial cattle in the Foxleigh district north of Regina and spent his life serving agricultural organizations, including the provincial and national Shorthorn associations, the Saskatchewan Stock Growers

Association and the Regina Exhibition Association. He also worked part-time for the Farm Debt Review Board. Agribition was his pride and joy. “He actually swung gates until he was 82 years old,” said Andrew. “He was still volunteering in the commercial cattle barn.” In 2007, unbeknownst to his children, Barry Andrew approached Agribition about setting up his bequest. His daughter, Joan Thomas, said she wasn’t surprised. “It’s very much who he was to promote young people and Agribition at the same time,” she said. The scholarship will offer $1,500 annually to a student enrolled in agriculture-related programs at a post-secondary institution. It will be known as the Barry Andrew and Family Scholarship. Outgoing president Bryan Hadland said the show’s success last year was built on a 10 percent increase in beef entries and a strong overall economy. Attendance for the six-day show was 122,300. More than 700 international guests from 60 countries attended.

Other highlights included the highest attendance ever for the Canadian Cowboys’ Association finals rodeo, a sold-out trade show and livestock sales that included a $73,000 bull calf, a record $21,000 pen of 10 bred heifers, a $20,000 bison bull and a $14,500 ranch horse. Chief executive officer Marty Seymour said a considerable amount of business took place. “We estimate close to $5 million in cattle traded as a result of Agribition,” he said. That includes $2 million at the sales held during the show, a $2 million purchase commitment for Canadian livestock from Kazakhstan and an estimated $1 million in trade among exhibitors or sales completed after the show, according to survey analysis. “That’s the second year in a row where (Kazakhstan has) been really aggressive,” he said. A new economic impact study of Agribition has also found the show generated $37 million in activity last year, up from $27 million in the previous study.

Quick disease identification vital It’s all about mirrors | Two optical technologies sort out problems in plants and animals BY RON LYSENG

Six carefully positioned, polished aluminum mirrors on the top of the box direct the infrared beam through a centrally placed tissue sample three times. Each time the beam passes through the sample, the absorption fingerprint of the sample is amplified and the sample image is rotated. The beam exits through another notch and an external detector sees a superposition of three images. The original image is restored in software with three times the signal level.

PINAWA, Man. — A new infrared device uses mirrors to identify a wide range of harmful bacteria in plants and animals. Another new optical invention is designed to identify and delete fusarium and ergot kernels from grain shipments. Both inventions may have farreaching health and economic implications for identifying and isolating bacteria that downgrade or endanger agricultural products. Both technologies are the product of Winnipeg-born physicist, David Prystupa, working in a small, rented basement lab at the Atomic Energy of Canada facility near Pinawa. Prystupa is president and chief scientific officer of Spectrum Agricultural, a research and development company he formed to explore new ways to use optical technology to improve the quality, safety economics of food production. Prystupa is a one-man band of scientific innovation. Not only does he run the business side of things by himself while nudging at the leading edge of physics and optics, but he also does his own machining, builds his own prototypes, organizes field demonstrations and changes burned out light bulbs. Graduate students still perform many of his research’s replicated trials. Prystupa works on nearly 20 projects dealing with optical detection within the food and agriculture industry. Two of the projects are almost ready for commercialization. Prystupa feels that one of them, infrared bacteria detection, will have a large impact on overall global human health and the long-term economic challenge to farmers feeding an increasing population. In scientific circles it’s known as single bacterium spectroscopy (SBS), but within the confines of his lab he jokingly calls it the chicken machine because it’s his first working version of the new technology and it just happens to be intended to


find bone fragments in processed chicken products. The object of SBS is to achieve immediate sensitivity to a previously identified, unwanted single cell within a tissue sample. Prystupa’s system eliminates the need for conventional, time-wasting cultural methods that take hours or days and goes far beyond detecting bone fragments. It means municipal hospitals, grocery stores, vet clinics, food processing plants, bakeries, grain elevators or even a school nurse could identify and confirm the presence of a specific bacteria or foreign substance in a tissue sample within a matter of minutes. “It’s an optical system I designed to inspect food samples at the production line rate of 200 birds per minute,” he said. “It isolates any defects or bone fragments down to one-third of one millimetre. The frequency of these defects is only one in one million, but when they come down the line, the chicken machine finds all of them. From industry’s point of view, it eliminates having to deal with the lawyers for the family of the deceased. For the consumer, of course, it will eliminate the fear of these incidents happening in the first place.” The commercialized product will be a hand-held gun that an inspector can aim at or press against food coming down the production line. Prystupa said he is ready to find a partner to bring the product to market, adding he has already demonstrated that it works through typical plastics used in food wrapping. The device carefully aims a narrow infrared beam at a tissue sample mounted on a polished aluminum mirror in the centre of an arrangement of more mirrors. The target mirror in the centre, plus all surrounding mirrors, are capable of minute adjustments so the infrared beam will pass through the same tiny target point in a cell three times, thus pushing more useful data through the detector and on to analytical processors.

Best ways to keep heat in, cold out ENERGY FIELD

In a typical elevator operation, every kernel of grain passing through a stack of five or six of these grain machines will get an accurate disease assessment. For test purposes, Prystupa is looking for 400,000 bushels of grain that has lost at least one grade due to fusarium. | RON LYSENG PHOTO A single infrared pass through a target cell will not yield enough information with many types of animal and plant bacterial diseases. Prystupa said his arrangement of six mirrors gives the detector three hits, which provides enough data for the program to make decisive judgments. More mirrors can be added for more advanced readings. “This same technology on a larger scale will process 25,000 individual cells at one time in the mid-IR range.” The accumulation data can have a tremendous impact on worldwide food production and food integrity. The other device, which Prystupa calls the grain machine, is engineered to optically check every grain kernel in a lot, even large volume shipments loaded on trains and ships. The official name of the machine is K-max. The discovery of an abnormal kernel triggers an electronic pulse that causes a small aluminum leg to remove the kernel from the main grain flow and put it into a separate cull bin. Each leg is capable of ejecting 100 infected kernels per second. In his early tests, Prystupa reported to Agriculture Canada’s Cereal Research Centre in Winnipeg and the Canadian Grain Commission that the new technology did a good job of identifying diseased kernels. “The reaction I got from them was that maybe I just got lucky,” he said. “So they gave me 27 wheat cultivars to test and we got the same positive identification results, enough to satisfy their scientific requirements.” Unlike high-cost, high-tech colour separators, Prystupa’s grain machine depends on readily available, off-the-shelf light sensors that cost less than $1 each. These inexpensive sensors are arranged on a circuit board so they can identify diseased grain kernels passing in front of them. It might seem that such highly singulated technology is only for seed growers and dealers processing small grain quantities for special contract, but Prystupa said it is actually a high volume machine. Conventional colour sorters handle 100 kernels per second, but Prystupa’s first working prototype handles 120 kernels or more per second. “We have run experiments as high as 20,000 kernels of wheat per second with this optical system, but that’s in a controlled lab setting,” he said. “Theoretically, the optics themselves can do a billion kernels per second, but there’s no way to ever handle singulated grain that quickly. In reality, I think we can get up to 2,000 kernels per second once we figure out how to handle that volume. Keep in mind this should

not be confused with color sorting technology. This is a totally different process.” In its basic low-cost form, the grain machine can identify and remove 93.5 percent of fusarium tainted wheat kernels. The basic apparatus employs 32 light sensors costing 97 cents each. The machine’s fusarium sensitivity can be improved to 95 percent without sacrificing good grain by fitting it with more sensitive infrared sensors that cost $27 each. However, even with the more expensive infrared sensors, five percent of the tainted kernels still end up in the clean bin. Prystupa said it’s difficult to justify spending the extra money for a gain of only one and a half percent. The device can be improved to 100 percent without spending extra money, but trade-offs in speed and efficiency have to be made. Five-year averages from the grain commission show that four million tonnes of wheat a year lose one or more grades because of fusarium, he said. Most of that grain drops from No. 1 to No. 2 or No. 3. The grain can regain $10 to $12 per tonne in value when fusarium is removed. Fusarium can be removed at a cost of $5 per tonne, putting $5 to $7 back into the sellers’ pockets. One of Prystupa’s grain machines is now a working prototype, mounted on a trailer and ready to analyze 400,000 bushels of fusarium and ergot tainted durum, spring or winter wheat this year. “I need B-trains of (feed) grain, lots of them,” said Prystupa, who is seeking farmers’ grain for testing. “The prototype runs at one tonne per hour and it’s ready to go right now. When we build mobile commercial truck units or trailer units, they’ll run at 18 tonnes per hour.” He said the technology will work in the same way to remove stained and otherwise unsuitable barley from a malt sample. For full-scale elevator operations, 100 pound grain machines the size of his prototype will be stacked five or six high to meet the throughput requirements. He is building enough of these individual units to equip a small number of elevators if the demand is there. They can also be mounted for mobile cleaning units. Prystupa said traditional sorting methods with screens and gravity are 40 percent effective. High-end optical devices that measure colour are more than 90 percent effective, but their $400,000 price tag is a major hurdle. Prystupa thinks his grain machine should sell for about half the price of the high-end optical sorter.

There are many choices, from spray foam to shredded newspapers


ibreglass was the standby material for construction insulation for decades. It looks like cotton candy and is actually made in a similar way, although from hot sand rather than sugar. Fibreglass was used in insulation applications of all sorts: wall cavities and ceilings in residential construction and roofs in commercial installations. It found its way into both hot and cold insulation, from water heaters to pipes. Fibreglass insulation is still around, but today it has competition. For batt insulation there is rockwool, made from slag, which is similar to fibreglass but has a somewhat higher R-value. The dull green Roxul brand is the most common. For attic insulation there is cellulose, which is essentially ground up newspaper. It is perhaps the most environmentally sound insulation material. Two tests have helped better understand the importance of insulation and sealing buildings against air movement : air pressure testing, which pressurizes a building and

Spray foam is popular in residential construction for its speed of application. | WILL ODDIE PHOTO looks for air leaks; and thermography, which takes photographs to show infrared radiation. Batt and loose insulation, including fibreglass, both have a drawback. They reduce air movement but do not eliminate it or the water vapour in the air. The industry has responded to this problem by installing polyethylene sheeting as an air-vapour resistant barrier between insulation and the interior of the structure. The development of petroleum based insulations have dramatically changed the options.

Foam sheet insulation has low air and moisture permeability, particularly the more dense versions such as an extruded styrofoam, which is usually pink or blue, and polyisocyanurate, a dense white foam with two foil faces. They can be used for retrofitting and in new installations. Sheet foam insulations can be used for above grade and below grade applications, which helps insulate foundations and basement walls on the outside. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

Spray foam is a good choice for tough to insulate buildings, such as quonset sheds, like this one. Its higher price ranks it second to batt and foam sheet products when it comes to cost. Spray can be installed faster and without the need of a vapour barrier, so it makes sense under the right conditions. | WILL ODDIE PHOTOS

The industry has discovered that sheet foam can go on the inside of the stud wall or on the outside. In both cases, it should be installed tightly with taping only at the joints. It has also been determined that moisture movement into the wall can largely be stopped by stopping the moving air. Foam sheet insulation also mitigates the impact of thermal bridging in studs. Wood studs are not a good insulator, about R1 per inch, and it is evident in thermal imaging. It means that studs located next to windows are the weak part of the wall in heat loss prevention. A 2 x 6 wall with R19 batts is really R16 when averaged over the entire wall. Installing a continuous two-inch layer of styrofoam over a stud wall

adds the full value of that insulation to the wall. In other words, R5 per inch provides R10. Add that to the R16 and it creates an effective insulation total of R26, which is more than a 60 percent gain in insulative value. Spray foam is the new kid on block. For those old enough, there are bad memories of the urea formaldehyde fiasco of the 1970s, in which the material was sprayed into wall cavities of older houses. Poor installation could result in health issues with offgassing, and the resulting bad publicity meant that spray foam vanished for a while. However, we have seen a resurgence of spray foam insulation in the last 10 years, and it is much improved. There are two types: Open cell, or half-pound foam, is soft to the touch and has a value of more than R3.5. Closed cell, or two-pound foam, is typically R5 or more per inch. Some potential insulative value is lost when used between studs because installers cannot entirely fill the cavity. The application can never be exact and smooth, as with batt or sheet material, so the installation is stopped short of filling the stud wall cavity to ensure that the finished material does not extend beyond the face of the studs. This type of insulation can be effective in certain circumstances. It seals much better than batt insulation and does not absorb moisture, which makes it useful in basement wall applications. It is particularly good for hard-toinsulate structures such as steel quonsets. It is also approved for use in unvented spaces such as cathedral roofs. There is little waste with spray foam and installation is fast, but it is also pricey: easily two to three times the cost of batt-poly installations. It is likely to remain one of many options with attributes for special situations. For those who like to put things to the environmental test, all products, including foam insulation, have their downsides. Ozone-depleting chemicals in foam insulation have been reduced or eliminated, but there are still concerns about flame retardants that stay in the environment. The greatest concern is about off-gassing in living space. Flame retardants vary from 0.5 percent by weight in expanded polystyrene sheet foam to 12.5 percent in open cell spray foam. These retardants are not part of batt insulations or cellulose. Flame retardant is not required where there is a thermal barrier such as half inch drywall, but the codes call for it. Some argue that the long-term energy saving resulting from an exceptional insulation job compensates for any other shortcomings. Others argue that we must go the extra mile to avoid environmental compromise. As always, we will be better able to judge the wisdom of these arguments somewhere down the road. In the meantime, even with something seemingly as innocuous as insulation, there are benefits and detriments to consider â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all the way from fibreglass to foam.

What to grow: pencilling out margins, weighing the risks PRODUCTION MATTERS





ecent commodity price tumbles for new crop means this year won’t deliver the solid financial returns of last year. However, most prairie planting choices will still deliver black ink, as long as yields are average. The late snow and cold temperatures mean yields are unlikely to be stellar because most crops perform to their peak when planted as close to May 1 as possible. New crop prices will likely be down 20 to 25 percent for cereals and 10 percent for oilseeds. A comparison of the major and a few minor crops that are in the mix for 2013 shows that Nexera canola will produce one the best returns from an average yield. For example, in my area in the Regina Plains, hybrid canola should yield 38 bushels per acre on average, with inputs that would carry a 45 bu. crop so that there are some upside possibilities. With a $480 per acre gross for Nexera and $235 in operating costs, a margin of $243 before fixed expenses is possible. The margin is more like $208 for non-high oleic hybrids that yield the same as Nexera. If those hybrids yield more than the high oleic, then it would be a wash as to which is chosen, unless storage and handling of the identity preserved crop is an issue. Either way, it makes canola king of the margin battles. However, canola is also the highest risk crop, next to grain corn. It will run about $345 to grow an acre of canola this year, with all costs included. The price of growing spring wheat is no bargain when fusarium control is added. It can cost as much as $300

per acre, with operations costing $190 or more, depending on disease issues. A 40 bu. per acre crop should generate about $315, so the choice to grow it might be based on how much of those fixed costs are owned assets for which a producer is willing to accept $125 or less per acre. A healthy winter wheat crop of 60 bu. per acre competes well against canola margins, but that decision needed to be made before Sept. 20. Growers who pulled off that plan

could see margins of $240 after operating expenses. About $190 per acre could be yielded after operations are paid if a grower’s 60 bu. per acre barley crop goes malting. Feed barley, at 70 bu., would deposit just $128 after expenses. Take out $85 for land and machinery and that leaves just $43, compared to malt’s $105. A 110 bu. oat crop in 2012 was a good investment. High prices and moderate operating costs made it

profitable. The same crop this year delivers about $150 in gross margin. After fixed costs, about $70 goes into the bank. If a grower can yield 28 bu. per acre with flax, about $190 will be left over after operating costs, or about $110 per acre overall. This makes flax a better than average crop for 2013-14. Canar yseed that yields 1,200 pounds per acre might deliver $154 per acre ahead of fixed costs, so it’s probably worth the itching because yields and the 25 cent price have room to grow. Peas produce a similar return with a 45 bu. crop: about $145 per acre in gross margins and a $60 per acre net margin. The pulses cost a little more to grow because of the purchase of a flex header and the annual investment of several cases of plastic fingers, not to mention additional wear and tear on the sprayer, depending on the crop and the year. Lentils at 21 cents per lb. and yields of 1,300 lb. per acre will settle out at $110 per acre ahead of fixed costs. Unless it’s a much better crop, only $25 will be left over after a return to capital. It might not be a great choice if the land rental is higher than $50 per acre and big machinery payments are due in the fall. Sunflowers as an oilseed crop can put $140 of gross margins into the bank, but can take their toll on the combine. After expenses, $55 per acre might be found in a 1,400 lb. crop. Corn can put a good margin in the bank under the right conditions. A 95 bu. crop that costs $255 per acre to grow made a lot of sense at $7 per bu. in 2012. However, at $5.10 this year, it might seem like a lot of risk for a gross margin of $180 per acre after operating costs, leaving about $80 or less per acre after the producer buys a used planter and corn header. Soybeans can keep operating costs down to about $175 per acre, and growers could see potential margins, ahead of fixed costs, of $130 per acre should the fall price be in the $410 per tonne range. There is a big upside

if November prices hold at $440 and yields work out to 32 bu. Soybeans, like corn, need higher soil temperatures to get started and typically aren’t planted in the West until late May. As a result, the crop might deliver better than average margins with some upside yield potential. Like corn, soybeans come with early fall frost risks and are new crops to most prairies producers. As spring cereals go, corn should beat everything but malting barley in higher heat unit areas. As well, a yield of just 10 more bushels per acre would make the corn bet seem pretty tempting. Corn is still a risky business for most of the Prairies, but it has a break-even of 60 bu. per acre with a fairly large upside potential up to 110 bu. or more. It’s kind of like betting on 36 bu. flax. That yield is possible when seeded May 5 but generally not at the beginning of June, when corn is generally seeded on the Prairies. This year it looks like the world demand for vegetable oil will increase farmers’ interest in canola and to a much lesser degree soybeans and flax. Spring planted wheat will take just 25 bu. to break even, but it doesn’t offer a big upside until producers exceed yields of 45 bu. per acre. Some of the latest spring wheat varieties are capable of high yields for those who are willing to put additional money into inputs and don’t mind increasing their risk. However, they are also susceptible to drought and frost damage. Malting barley, if it can be achieved, has strong margins with lower risks than spring wheat. I didn’t manage to get any winter wheat into the ground last year, so once again I’m keeping my day job, just in case the flax, canola, corn and soybeans don’t work out. Maybe I’ll get the flax off early enough to plant a winter wheat crop in 2013. Hey, look at that, it’s next year already.

Dow, Monsanto combine herbicide, insecticide traits New control | Glyphosate, 2,4-D and rootworm tolerance mixed BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Dow and Monsanto are working together on a new trait combination that puts glyphosate and 2,4-D tolerance together with Monsanto’s yet to be released, third generation, RNA interference-based rootworm technology. Breeding additional agronomic traits into the latest plant varieties and strains has been the cornerstone of the crop genetics industry for 12 years. Herbicide resistance, when combined with “baked-in” insecticide capacity, has reduced the use of many pesticide products. The practice is a hit with farmers because it lowers their costs and the hazards of handling those products. For example, Monsanto and other trait developers currently place bacillus thuringiensis (B.t.) protein genetics, in a single or dual mode of action, into the corn genome to foil corn pests. Dow and Monsanto teamed up in 2007 to release Smartstax, the Dow multi-trait introgression of herbicide tolerance and insect protection. It

was a combination of hybrid corn, soybean and cotton genetics, Monsanto’s Yield Guard Triple and Roundup Ready genetics and Dow’s Herculex Xtra and Liberty Link. The combination provides weed and insect control above and below the soil. Only three traits added to a single crop plant were available before that eight stacked trait release. However, this isn’t a silver bullet. Monsanto says other methods of control can be required, depending on the circumstances, and cultural practices of crop rotation and other pesticides are encouraged to reduce resistance development. Garry Hamlin of Dow said major changes are on the horizon for crop genetics. “The days of the single trait (added to a) crop are over. If you are using one method of control on the same weed or the same insect, whether it is chemical or cultural practice, or set of practices, then you are stimulating resistance.” Hamlin said producers need to follow best practices and combine them with new tools for pest control if they want to avoid resistance problems.

Dow and Monsanto plan to share the yet to be released Monsanto Corn Rootworm Three, non-B.t. insect technology and the new Dow 2,4-D-Enlist herbicide tolerance, which controls volunteer crops and a wide variety of weeds that are not glyphosate, glufosinate or 2,4-D tolerant. Jeff Loessin of Dow said the two agriculture giants are working together but still competing. “We each will be pairing the stacked technology with our best germplasm,” he said about Dow’s Mycogen seed brand and Monsanto’s Genuity. Hamlin agreed. “This isn’t reducing the number of players fighting for the farmers’ business. We are going to be just as fierce when it comes to trying to take away their customers when it comes to seed,” he said. “This is more about (research and development).… This leverages our research budgets in these areas. It costs us about $135 million and 13 years to bring new technologies to market. Working together, farmers are getting more tools, faster.”

Celebrating Two Wishes Granted in Three Days! The 15th Annual Agricultural Industry Grain Challenge Charity Hockey Tournament was another success! Winners were crowned in the Competitive, Recreation and Casual over 45 division, with only Brett Young being able to hold unto it’s casual under 45 division championship from last year. With a record number of 44 teams and players attending meant more fans throughout the entire weekend which grew our net proceeds to a record level of $21,433.72. The net proceeds were split between the Saskatchewan Chapter ($3,200) and the Manitoba/ Nunavut Chapter ($17,233.72) of the Children’s Wish Fund. The first puck dropped Thursday night, March 14th and concluded late Saturday night with 74 games played. Highlights from the weekend include: the Children’s Wish Fund Manitoba/ Nunavut Chapter Director, Maria Tascano spoke to the crowd about the challenges children with a life threatening illness face and what it means for their wishes to come true—such as this year’s Grain Challenge sponsor child 4 year old, Logan Andrews. With his big

brother and mother by his side, Logan dropped the puck off at center ice for both the 6:20 PM and 6:40 PM games to officially start the tournament. The feature game was between DuPont/ Pioneer and P&H, with former Montreal Canadiens 1993 Stanley Cup winner, Gilbert Dionne in the line-up and taking the official face off from Logan. Logan’s wish is to go Disney World and the family hopes to go this fall. Sponsored to attend event by his employer P&H and Mr. Dionne did not disappoint the fans that were in attendance. We held our first “Ladies Night” at the Grain Challenge with all ladies in attendance having chances to win gift certificates and Mr. Dionne stepped up to the microphone to tell stories from playing in the NHL. He was also the highlighted auctioneer for this year’s event. Mr. Dionne brought an autographed jersey by Guy Lafleur, 2 autographed Winnipeg Jets autographed jerseys and he sponsored the trip of a lifetime for a true Habs fan to see a game in Montreal this fall.

According to tournament organizers, Neil Haeusler and Tal McGonigal, the success of this event lies with our great sponsors and participants—without them it wouldn’t be possible for the Grain Challenge Hockey Tournament to continue making these wishes come true and give back to the surrounding communities and province. With 44 teams from 39 agricultural-related companies, approximately 700 players took to the ice at the Dakota Community Twin Rinks in Winnipeg. And Neil and Tal both agree that without the 80+ volunteers that this is event would never. The Grain Challenge Committee would like to thank the following sponsors: Labatt Canada, PMA Canada, Source for Sports, Tim Horton’s, Carberry International, Dakota Arena and Southdale Arena. The 16th Annual Grain Challenge Hockey Tournament will be held next year at the Dakota Twin Rinks in Winnipeg, March 13-15, 2014.

John Deere’s Field Connect measures soil moisture and acts as a weather station. | JOHN DEERE PHOTOS

NEW PRODUCTS DEERE SEES MORE John Deere has expanded its original remote soil moisture probe to include a suite of environmental sensors. The remote soil moisture unit, called Field Connect, was new for the company last fall, and it has added a weather station, rain gauge, thermometer, wind gauge and leaf wetness sensor. The soil moisture is measured using capacitance sensors. Data from the field sensor is sent to a secure website, where producers can pick up the information. The system can be set to send alerts to producers’ cellphones and can be used to track weather and soil moisture data over time. It is solar powered and relies on satellite and cellular communications to build and send the data. Deere said the system is aimed at higher value crops and irrigation operations and will also find a home on remote farming locations. The system costs about $2,500. Fore more information, visit www.

Extended winter pressures feed supplies Hay stocks running low | Cattle producers say pastures are under snow and alternate feed supplies are becoming scarce BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

The long, snowy winter of 2013 has put pressure on feed supplies for Saskatchewan cattle producers. They say feeding has gone on way longer than expected and spring hasn’t come early enough to help out. Brent Griffin, who has 700 head near Elbow, has been buying hay from a couple of smaller producers who sold their cows but still had supplies. “We’re definitely running short,” he

said. “We’re feeding full bore.” So far, the cattle are fine, but he said they are pawing at the snow and it’s clear they would rather be out grazing. The winter grazing stock he had set aside is still under too much snow. “We can comfortably feed maybe to the end of the April,” he said midmonth. “We’re OK when the snow goes.” In southeastern Saskatchewan near Whitewood, Ryan Beierbach said feeding has gone on longer than anyone expected. “Part of it is everybody started feed-

ing a month sooner than normal,” he said. Recent record-setting cold temperatures meant the cows continued to eat at winter rates. “They’re definitely not easing up on the hay,” Beierbach said. As it warms up, that should change but feeding will have to continue because grazing is still a long way off. Beierbach has also been able to buy hay fairly close to home at a reasonable price of four cents per pound. Truckers have told him that many

producers are complaining about the hay shortage. Griffin said the thousands of loads of hay that went to Ontario or the United States last fall, in retrospect, could have been sold at home during the winter no one saw coming. Those sales coupled with poor hay crops the past couple of years in northern Saskatchewan mean there just isn’t hay available. In his own case, alfalfa weevil decimated what should have been a bumper crop after good spring moisture.

“Our hay crop was very, very average,” he said. Griffin said he worries about the producers who can’t find hay and don’t know what to do about it. Beierbach added that hay quality could be a concern if producers have to buy bales that are two or three years old. Both producers said this is the worst winter for snow pack that they can recall. Usually by now there is some bare ground showing and the promise of pastures in May.

Manitoba feed shortage forcing early sales Using alternatives | Some producers are feeding more straw than they would normally, or should, says a pasture expert BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Manitoba Beef Producers and the provincial government are asking producers to carefully assess their feed situation and sell cattle if necessary to prevent malnutrition this spring. The province is experiencing a widespread feed shortage, and five to 10 centimetres of snow that fell April 15, on top of the 25 cm still on the ground in certain regions, means it will be weeks before cattle can graze on pasture. As a result, cattle producers will need to manage through an extended feeding season and the possibility of pasture flooding this spring. “Both Manitoba Beef Producers and Manitoba Agriculture have fielded calls with questions about stretching forage supplies through to spring pasture,” the MBP noted in a joint news release with Manitoba Agriculture. “In certain situations, you need to market livestock such as feeders, stockers and replacement heifer calves now prior to a complete exhaustion of feed.” Pam Iwanchysko, a Manitoba Agriculture forage specialist in Dauphin, said a few producers in the area have already sold feeders and older cows because they don’t have sufficient feed to last until pastures green up. Unlike previous years, when one region of Manitoba was short hay and other regions had a decent crop, the shortage this year is widespread, Iwanchysko said. In her time with Manitoba Agriculture, Iwanchysko said she has never seen hay stocks at such low levels. Hay stocks going into last spring were already below average in certain regions due to several years of overland flooding drowning out

A hot, dry summer then severely cut hay yields in eastern Manitoba. Cattle producers in the northern Interlake are also struggling to find adequate feed, said Tim Clarke, Manitoba Agriculture’s range and pasture expert in Ashern. “They’re scrambling. They’re feeding more straw than they would normally, or should,” he said. “They’re bringing in pellets. It’s just not a great situation.” Heinz Reimer, who manages an 800 head cow-calf operation for Hylife near La Broquerie, Man., said he has

also been forced to supplement the herd’s diet with straw. “We’re feeding hay but we’re feeding 20 percent of the diet as straw. At this time, we wouldn’t like to do that but that’s the way it is.” Most producers in his area of southeastern Manitoba probably have sufficient feed to make it until the end of April or early May, Reimer said. However, it could become a tough situation if the adverse conditions stretch into May, he added. On the plus side, the excess moisture is welcome because a drought in southeastern Manitoba last summer

depleted soil moisture reserves and dried up dugouts. Reimer said his cattle might be on pasture by the third week of May if the six-week cold spell in Manitoba finally snaps. “I think by the May long weekend, we might have a chance by then.” Manitoba Agriculture has received a number of calls over the last couple of months from ranchers seeking creative ways to feed cattle. “Questions about feeding alternative feeds such as hemp screenings, pea flour, and oat hulls, these will all work in beef cow rations, but they

need to be formulated correctly,” said the Manitoba Agriculture and MBP release. “Your local MAFRI GO Office is one source to consider for assistance with formulating rations to ensure animal requirements are being met.” Iwanchysko said it could be challenging for Manitoba cattle producers to rebuild hay stocks because a large chunk of alfalfa land has been taken out of production and is now used to grow canola. As a result, provincial hay stocks won’t bounce back immediately even if 2013 is a decent year for forage crops.


Student aims to make potty training cattle easy as pie Treats and time outs | Researcher seeks to train cattle to urinate and defecate in a specific area to improve conditions in barns BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Ali Vaughan says she was met with skepticism when she announced that she wanted to potty train cows. However, the University of Saskatchewan PhD candidate said the early returns from her work are promising and could result in practical applications for dairy producers. “There was definitely a degree of skepticism because for whatever reason, people don’t think cows are that smart,” said Vaughan, who studies animal behaviour at the university. In 2012, she conducted a simple experiment — “a proof of principle” — in which she tried to train six oneto two-month old dairy cows to urinate in a specific area. Her work could address environmental concerns in dairy barns by

reducing ammonia emissions from urine and feces and improving animal health, creating cleaner environments and reducing the occurrences of lameness and mastitis. “Normally when you’re coming up with ideas for research, the scientists think it’s a good idea and the producers don’t even know why you want to do that,” said Vaughan, who splits time between Saskatchewan and British Columbia, where she con-

ducts her research. “This time, the scientists are like, ‘well, this is silly,’ whereas the producers, the ones I’ve spoken to, seem quite interested.” In the initial experiment , Vaughan gave the calves a diuretic and put them in individual stalls. A gate opened when the animal urinated and it received reinforcements, including milk. The process was repeated several times.

In the following days, she conducted the same experiment without the diuretic and moved calves that didn’t urinate into a “time out” pen, where they spent short periods of time alone. Vaughan hopes to use consequences to modify an animal’s behaviour. Performance varied within Vaughan’s small sample size, but one calf picked it up immediately and only one failed to get it at all. With that encouragement, she said she will continue to pursue the idea with the ultimate goal of automating the training. She’ll be retesting the cattle’s memory and refining the process, looking for the cues and conditions that cattle like best. “There’s some really exciting future applications of this,” said Vaughan. “I always try to rein myself back in, but if we can train them to urinate

and defecate in a specific area, particularly in a stall, we could put this before the milking parlour. No more urine and feces in the milking parlour. No more contamination that way. Fantastic.” She said the exercise is also beneficial for animals living in a high density environment. Cattle are calmer and easier to handle when they have more control, she added, referring to their response to robotic milkers. “These are thinking animals. We can make use of that to make our jobs a lot easier, to make their lives a lot better,” she said. “I think initially, growing up, I was more inclined to be a bit of a Luddite, suspicious of technology, but I think it’s really the way forward to improving animal welfare. I think that’s something we all have a moral responsibility to care about.”





Sandhills calving system helps prevent calf scours ANIMAL HEALTH


Limiting calf exposure to risk agents and older calves are key factors


nyone who has dealt with a calf scours outbreak knows how difficult it can be. Not only do producers have to keep on top of treating sick calves and keeping them alive, but they must also deal with the extra labour associated with calving. Veterinarians and producers must focus on three key factors to prevent outbreaks from occurring: the agent that causes the disease, the calf ’s immunity and the environment. The common agents that cause calf scours include viruses such as bovine rotavirus and bovine coronavirus, bacteria such as E. coli and parasites such as cryptosporidia and coccidian. The unique aspect of calf scours is that almost all the agents are widespread in cattle populations. Therefore, disease prevention needs to focus on the calf’s immunity and the environment. The importance of calves receiving adequate colostrum in the first six hours of life is a key to scours prevention. In addition, the cow herd can be vaccinated before calving begins to boost the immunity against rotavirus, coronavirus and E. coli in the cow’s colostrum. However, even with vaccination, this can all be overwhelmed if we don’t pay attention to the environment. Cold environmental conditions and moisture such as mud and snow can be a significant stressor that may affect the calf’s ability to fight off disease or obtain adequate colostrum at birth. Crowded conditions can increase a calf’s contact with many of the agents that cause scours by increasing its contact with manure from adult cows. It also increases the number of times the calf is exposed to the viruses and bacteria that cause calf scours. As well, crowded conditions make it easier for the infection to spread from calf to calf or to persist in the environment once one calf becomes infected. Environmental contamination may also increase when conditions are wet and cool. The amount of virus, bacteria and parasites that each calf sheds begins to increase as multiple infections take place in the herd, whether it be dam to calf or older calf to younger calf. The vicious circle of environmental contamination can be difficult to break once it has begun. One of the major benefits to having cows calve on pasture is the ability to spread cows out and limit environmental contamination. A major strategy was developed at Agriculture Canada’s research centre in Lacombe, Alta.

The Lacombe calving system involved overwintering cows in an area separated from the calving area. Cows were moved onto the calving area just before calving began to keep the calving area as clean as possible. Cow-calf pairs were then moved to paddocks or pastures as soon as possible. Several paddocks allowed different ages of calves to be separated from each other. A system known as the Sandhills calving system has been used in ranches in Nebraska. It was designed to limit exposure of calves to the agents that cause scours by using clean calving areas and preventing contact between younger and older calves.

In this system, cows are overwintered in a separate area before calving, but seveal calving paddocks or pastures are used instead of just one. The cows are moved onto the first calving area once calving begins. After a week or two, the cows that haven’t calved are moved onto the next calving area and the cow-calf pairs are left behind. This procedure continues until the last group of cows has calved. The Sandhills calving system allows cows to calve on “clean” calving areas and also provides for separation of older calves from younger calves. It is also easier to move pregnant cows to the next calving area instead

of moving cow-calf pairs. In some situations, producers may be able to sort pregnant cows into early calving and later calving groups based on pregnancy examination results. Both systems focus on the environmental risk factor of calf scours. There are obviously limitations to implementing either of these systems on individual ranches because of facility design and resources. Producers may need to adapt the system to fit their individual ranch. John Campbell is head of Large Animal Clinical Sciences at the University of Saskatchewan’s Western College of Veterinary Medicine.

Hog industry at a ‘critical crossroads’ Sow stall switch Lack of profitability | Producers and officials say time is running out


Hog farmers grappled with their plight during the Manitoba Pork Council’s annual meeting held April 10 in Winnipeg. The following are comments from discussion about a resolution that called on the entire pork industry to meet to find a way to preserve the pig production base on which the rest of the supply chain relies. Cal Penner, farmer “Most feel this just can’t continue. The lack of profitability we’ve had since 2008 and the losses that we’ve had in the last year, many producers are reaching the point where they feel they can no longer continue.” “We need to start addressing the structural problems that this industry has. We need to find more ways to get value back to the producer. I think we need to find ways to make this a profitable business again.” “Many producers are near the tipping point. I think we should do it fairly quickly.” Karl Kynoch, Manitoba Pork Council chair “Their equity’s running out. It’s at a very critical crossroads.”

Many producers are near the tipping point.

There are other parts of the supply chain, specifically the retailer, that need to be included in the solution. They need to be committed to buying and selling Canadian pork and possibly convinced to share some of their meat margins.”


Rick Prejet, farmer

“If we don’t resolve some of this, we will lose another round of producers.” “I’ll tell you, the government’s not here to help us, so I think the industry is going to have to take charge of it. We’re going to have to figure this thing out on our own and figure it out together.”

“Sometimes as producers we just sit back and watch things happen.”

P e r r y M o h r, H a m s M a r k e t i n g Co-operative general manager “The current method of pricing pigs in Canada is outdated and needs to be revisited. There’s a significant differential between Canadian and U.S. prices that when the current method of pricing was developed was largely offset by a very weak Canadian dollar.” “Simply put, hog producers need and deserve more revenue from the hogs they are producing.” “(Packers like Maple Leaf, HyLife and Olymel) are certainly part of the solution, but not the entire solution.


“Every sector has to take it serious. As the saying goes, a chain is as strong as the weakest link. We’re all interdependent on each other. And I think we all care. There are power and synergies and we need to move ahead with this and if it takes more than one meeting, we have to have more than one meeting. But we can’t give up in trying to establish something that down the road is going to be good for the industry.”

T h e Ma n i t o b a P o r k C o u n c i l appears to be softening its support for ridding the province of sow stalls by 2025. Chair Karl Kynoch told the council’s recent annual meeting that many people thought the organization’s pledge was for a voluntary phasing out of sow stalls, but all it ever committed to was urging farmers to consider alternatives. “We’re not telling producers they have to switch by 2025,” Kynoch told reporters at the end of the meeting. “What we’re doing is telling producers, ‘OK, we’re getting some pressure on this, at least do some research and do some experimentation on alternative housing.’ We’re not saying we’re going to get rid of all the stalls. We’re just saying look at other options.” When the council made its pledge in a March 2011 report, it stated: “Manitoba Pork commits to encouraging producers to phase out by 2025 the style of dry sow stalls currently used. New forms of housing must be practical and provide protection to animals and humans alike.” The report also said Manitoba farmers would continue to follow the national pig code of practice, which is being updated. The issue of open housing for gestating sows was repeatedly raised at the recent annual meeting, which was filled with reports of financial losses, farm failures and bleak future prospects. The issue has caused great ferment throughout the developed pig producing world. The European Union is gradually bringing in a ban on gestation stalls, while many major North American food companies say they plan to accept only stall-free pork in the future. Some major hog product i o n c o m p a n i e s h av e a l r e a d y switched to open housing. The contents of the revised pig code of practice have not been publicly revealed yet, but most industry players believe it will include open housing as a recommended practice. Florian Possberg, chair of the code process, told the meeting that it has been difficult for his committee to find a consensus to the housing issue because it includes everyone from consumers to farmers. “It’s been quite a difficult task to find this ground that we can determine is common,” said Possberg. “There is a very high expectation that we have something that meets the sniff test.” Large strides have been made in open housing research in North America. The University of Manitoba recently opened a demonstration centre at its Glenlea research farm, and the Manitoba Pork Council has done much work explaining open housing systems. As well, hog indus-

Rick Bergmann, Canadian Pork Council and Manitoba Pork Council “Although society, although our province, our country, our government benefit so greatly from the things that we do, right now there is no level of involvement that they would want to participate in.”

The introduction of alternative housing remains a contentious issue within the hog industry. | FILE PHOTO try meetings generally include at least one session on how to operate open housing systems. However, some in the industry are opposed to ending sow stall systems, believing them to be humane and the best management practice. As well, some believe farmers should receive premiums for moving to open housing to cover the possible costs. Producer Dan Klippenstein said a new pig code of practice shouldn’t make open housing the norm. “By voluntarily enforcing a code that becomes a requirement versus a recommendation, we are taking that economic benefit and paying for it for the retailers,” said Klippenstein. “I am very sure that when it comes to dollars, the retailers will not pay for it.” Rick Berman from Washington, D.C., who lobbies against the animal rights movement, delighted some in the audience with his recommendation that farmers hold fast to present production methods and refuse to give in to animal activist pressure. Instead, they should start attacking the activists, ridiculing them and attacking their fundraising base. “Defence loses over time,” said Berman, who claimed that attack ads crippled People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and that government authorities could be pressured to open fraud investigations of dubious fundraising practices. “It’s a very simple equation: defund your enemy.” Berman told reporters that it would be a mistake for the pork council to call for voluntarily phasing out sow stalls. Kynoch responded that the pork council’s apparent support for ending gestation stalls didn’t actually commit farmers to anything other than thinking about the issue. “We’re not saying switch; we’re saying do the research,” said Kynoch. “Look into it. If there’s better alternatives and it works better for somebody, switch to it. Deliver the best animal care possible.”





Lack of capacity will keep prairie elevator system intact Business model | Despite expansions, storage space at elevators will remain small compared to those in the U.S. BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

The end of single desk grain marketing in Canada isn’t going to turn the prairie elevator business into a carbon copy of the American model, says the country’s grain system monitor. Mark Hemmes of Quorum Corp. said too much investment has been poured into the present prairie elevator system to allow it to suddenly transform into the American way. “It’s a different model,” he told the Canada Grains Council annual

meeting in Winnipeg. “The two systems, while we have some similarities in what we do and what we grow, the systems themselves are too different, and I don’t think one transfers to the other.” Western Canada’s grain elevator system has 386 facilities with 6.7 million tonnes of storage capacity to handle 62.1 million tonnes of crop production and stocks. The elevator system in Minnesota, the Dakotas, Montana and Wyoming has 512 facilities with 21.4 millions of tonnes of storage for an 82.4 million tonne crop.

That means that proportionally the U.S. has more than double the Canadian elevator storage capacity. It is able to hold 25 percent of the region’s crop, while the Canadian system can hold only 10 percent. Farmers in Canada generally keep most of their crop on the farm for much of the year, while U.S. farmers move much of their crop off the farm and into the elevator system at harvest or soon after. Hemmes said 27 prairie elevators are now boosting capacity, which will create lots of new storage. However, nothing will move the system closer to


GM apple wins biotech prize BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

The company that plans to commercialize an apple variety genetically modified to resist browning has received an award for its contribution to Canada’s biotechnology industry. Okanagan Specialty Fruits of Summerland, B.C., developers of the Arctic apple that has yet to be approved in Canada, is the recipient of a Gold Leaf award from BioteCanada. Company president Neal Carter said he was surprised but pleased to win the “early stage agriculture” award from the biotechnology group. “It’s quite nice to have a little recognition for what we’re doing,” he said. “We’re taking on a pretty big task here.” GM crops are generally developed by large companies, who then undertake the approval process toward commercialization. Okanagan Specialty Fruits is a small com p a n y s eekin g t o g e t approval for its GM apple in the United States and Canada. That path has included objections to its release from some within the tree fruit industry and from those who oppose genetic modification in general. However, Carter said he expects the variety will be deregulated by the end of 2013, meaning the Arctic apple will be treated like any other apple cultivar. “It means they are released, (growers) are free to plant them, breed them, grow them, sell the fruit, the whole deal … and use them in any application that apples currently are used in,” Carter said. The U.S. is likely to open its second comment period on the GM apple next month, he added, which means the variety could potentially be deregulated and approved for commercialization later this year. “We have a lot of interest, a lot of people who are waiting for approval so they can plant,” Carter said. “Right now one of our biggest undertakings is to prepare trees and have trees ready for this.” Small amounts of the apple variety would be available by 2014-15 and significant quantities by 2016 if deregulation occurs as Carter hopes.

looking like the U.S. structure. “We’re certainly not going to see a growth in the amount of storage in the country to equate with what they have in the United States,” said Hemmes. “We’re not going to 25 percent. Nobody’s got that kind of money.” Hemmes thinks an end to consolidation is one likely change in the Canadian elevator system. Ownership of some elevators might change, but it’s unlikely many will be shut down. “The network that we have now is pretty much going to stay stable,”

said Hemmes. However, what w ill probably change is what flows through different elevators. Most elevators were built to handle the wide range of crops that prairie farmers grow, but they will likely be altered to focus on highly efficient handling of specific crops. “I think the days are gone where you’re going to have multi-commodity facilities,” said Hemmes. Some elevators will focus on wheat, others will be dedicated to canola and others will focus on special crops.


Nutritional seed treatment “AWAKENS” crop potential New technology contributes to stronger roots and bigger yields A new class of seed treatment technology is awakening crops to their full potential in fields across Canada. Seed-applied nutrients – also called “nutritional seed treatments” – coat the seed with a nutritional package, giving crops a vigorous start and their best chance at a strong yield. “We are excited to be able to provide cereal growers with an innovative tool to help enhance the early plant growth of their crops,” says Eric Gregory, product manager for Loveland Products Canada. Gregory and his team launched the first liquid seed-applied nutrient to be registered in Canada. Awaken ST was available to growers for the first time last year with great results reported in wheat, oat and barley fields across the prairies.

Putting nutrients where needed Growers have long known the critical need to supply their crops with the nutrients they require to prosper. But only recently have they had access to a solution that puts additional nutrients right where they are needed during germination – on the seed.

The result is increased emergence, stand uniformity, stress tolerance, and root and shoot growth as well as reduced time to maturity, which can all boost yield potential. “It also helps other aspects of a grower’s pest control program,” he adds. “The benefit of quicker and even crop emergence is better crop competition for enhanced herbicide performance and even leaf staging for efficacious fungicide applications.”

Proven effective in fields Seed-applied nutrition is essential for progressive growers looking for maximum yield and return on investment. With the trend toward early seeding, growers can get into the field with confidence regardless of soil conditions by using seed-applied nutrition to get the crop off to the best possible start. “In 2012, Awaken ST produced excellent responses in the field,” says Gregory. “Growers found that the seed treatment enhanced emergence, vigour, root and shoot growth, maturity and yield.”

Competitor’s seed-applied fungicide only

Tim Pizzey of Inland Seeds Corp. in Binscarth, Manitoba is eager to share the impressive results on his farm. “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,” he says.

Seeing is believing Another prairie grower tested Awaken ST on his 4,000-acre farm near North Battleford, Saskatchewan. “We heard good things about it, so we put it in side-by-side trials on our farm,” says Rory Gregoire of Gregoire Seed Farms Ltd. “We saw an increase in yield by four bushels per acre with Awaken ST. It definitely paid for itself in a hurry.” Gregoire encourages other growers to try it for themselves. “For anyone who hasn’t used it before, I would recommend trying a couple jugs. Put it on a few acres and see the results for yourself. Especially if the season is cold and conditions aren’t ideal for germination. Awaken will give your crop the extra boost it needs and you will see a huge increase.”

Awaken ST + competitor’s seed-applied fungicide

“Seed-applied nutrients give germinating plants immediate access to nutrients well before they are able to utilize nutrients in the soil. It starts to work the same day the treated seed goes into the ground,” explains Gregory.

Gluten-free dilemma | Nearly a third of U.S. adults want to cut down or eliminate gluten in their diet. What does this mean for wheat growers? BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

It’s possible that the gluten-free diet is nothing but a fad, ending up in the loony bin of dietary history along with the grapefruit diet and the baby food diet. Yet there is another possible outcome, in which consumers will permanently view gluten as a hazard that must be avoided, says a Canadian bakery executive. “Our research shows that over 10 percent of the (Canadian) population had tried or is on a gluten-free diet over the last 12 months,” said Barry McLean, president of Canada Bread Fresh Bakery, a division of Maple Leaf Foods. “Gluten free is beginning to reach the kind of percentile, in my mind, that MSG reached in the ’80s….

ar and sodium in our diet,” he said. “While those desires still exist for many, they no longer are growing concerns. Today, increasingly more of us want to avoid gluten in our diet and right now it is nearly 30 percent of the adult population … and it’s growing. This is the health issue of the day.” Canada Bread, the Canadian National Millers Association, the Baking Association of Canada and Weston Bakeries responded last fall by launching the Healthy Grains Institute. It will support and share science-based information on the role of whole grains in the diet. Canadian producer groups are not mentioned as supporters on the Healthy Grains Institute website, but everyone in the industry needs to recognize the importance of this effort, said Paul Hetherington, president of

What will happen if the media noise creates a continuing fear of gluten and takes gluten as something to be avoided at all cost because it will kill you?” McLean was blunt when he talked about the serious threat of the glutenfree and anti-wheat movements during the Canada Grains Council’s annual meeting in Winnipeg in early April. “It wouldn’t be inappropriate to say that we (the grains industry) are under assault, he said. “We are under attack. Everyday, I get some new data point … (saying) bread is the devil.” A Januar y sur vey by the NPD Group found that 30 percent of U.S. adults want to eliminate or cut down the amount of gluten in their diet. That kind of statistic cannot be ignored, Henry Balzer, a NPD Group industry analyst, said in a statement. “A generation ago, health was about avoiding fat, cholesterol, sug-

digestive problems such as IBS, high LDL cholesterol, visceral weight gain, obesity, diabetes and MORE.… Seems like a pretty long list of ailments for a supposed “health food!” …. Wheat is cheap, plentiful, subsidized by the government and keeps the pharma-

the Baking Association of Canada. “I think if we’re going to be successful, we need the engagement of the entire supply chain,” he said. “Proponents of the negative grain message have been enjoying the void (in the debate) because we haven’t been filling it with our scientific-based information.” Richard Phillips, executive director of Grain Growers of Canada, said Canadian producers are willing to support the institute, but wheat associations and commissions haven’t yet been officially formed on the Prairies in the wake of industry deregulation. “If you’re looking for serious dollars, those dollars are going to rest within the actual wheat commissions,” he said. “Those are the groups that are going to have check-off dollars flowing in and will be in a position, financially, to step up to the degree needed.”

ceutical industry happy because they can dole out meds for all those above-mentioned maladies that are chronic due to the ongoing ingestion of a TOXIN.” • “I have suffered with major depression and chronic fatigue

Only 20 years ago, grain and bread sat atop the food pyramid and were the darling of the food guide, Hetherington said. But consumer perceptions about grain have changed dramatically over the past 10 to 15 years. More significantly, the entire food industry has undergone a paradigm shift. He said there was a time when governments and policy makers viewed food as a solution to problems such as malnutrition and chronic illness. Nowadays, federal, state and provincial governments are worried about the negative health implications of excess food consumption and the related impact on health budgets. “We as a food industry … have been slow to respond to that changing environment. We, as the grains industry, have also been very slow to change to that. Maybe even more so,” Hetherington said. McLean said there are few signs that the gluten backlash has hit its peak, even though 30 percent of Americans view gluten as a food substance to avoid. Food companies bring more gluten-free products to the marketplace every year, which suggests that demand is still expanding. Compounding the problem for the grains industry are books, such as Wheat Belly, by Dr. William Davis, a cardiologist from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, that tell consumers to avoid grain entirely. McLean said he recently visited a Costco and noticed that Davis’s Wheat Belly Cookbook was displayed prominently in the store. “It had 10 times more space than any other book at the store,” he said. “I can tell you from my knowledge of the products we sell at Costco, that wouldn’t stay that way unless they were selling a lot of those cookbooks.” Phillips said that besides contributing money to promotional campaigns, individual farmers must also defend wheat and respond to the misinformation. “I think we can say a lot more, as actual farmers, about wheat and what we think.”

for the last 10 years of my life…. Practically bedridden. I was at the point of having to have electroshock treatments, as none of the medications were working. “I read your book, Wheat Belly, and the diet has changed my life. I have never felt better in my life!

Just by eliminating wheat, my depression is gone! I have the most energy I’ve ever had and feel great…. It’s criminal that the Food and Drug Administration is promoting something that is making us so sick! Thank you so much!”





Gov’t remains firm on restricted farm losses despite court ruling MONEY IN YOUR POCKET



he federal government maintains that the intent of its restricted farm loss (RFL) rules was to limit the ability to deduct farm losses from total income if farming is not the major source of income. This is a major issue to most farmers because more than 75 percent of them depend on non-farm income. Subsection 31(1) and the restricted farm loss rules were introduced in 1951. The RFL rules limit the deduction of farm losses to a maximum of $8,750 annually: $2,500 plus half of the next $12,500. Farm losses in excess of that limit can be carried forward for 20 years to be claimed against farming income. It should be noted that the $8,750 limitation has not been updated, indexed or changed since 1988. The Supreme Court of Canada, specifically in the 1978 Moldowan v. the Queen case, seemed to agree

with the government in early rulings and interpreted the chief source of income test in the RFL rules. The court held that farming that results in a loss could satisfy the chief source of income test without restriction if farming is the taxpayer’s chief source of income in combination w i t h a n o n - f a r m i n g s o u rc e o f income. However, the other source of income must be subordinate or a side-line employment or business. Otherwise, farm losses would be restricted. The Moldowan ruling introduced two classes of taxpayers in which farming was either the chief source of income or subordinate. However, it could not be a combination. The government argued that the Moldowan decision was consistent with the purpose of the chief source of income test, which is to ensure that taxpayers for whom farming is not the principal occupation are limited in their ability to deduct farm losses from their nonfarm income. The counter argument by the taxpayer was that a farming business, based on the subsection 31(1) wording, could be a combination of farming and another source of income regardless of which one was subordinate. In 2012, in The Queen v. Craig, 2012 SCC 43, the Supreme Court overruled

Moldowan by holding that the particular taxpayer could meet the chief source of income test by reviewing his effort and activity in addition to reviewing his source of income from practicing law and farming. In effect, the court established a test that permits the full deduction of farming losses when a taxpayer places significant emphasis on both farming and non-farming sources of income, even if it believes that farming is subordinate to the other source of income. Nowhere does the legislation suggest that subsection 31(1) applies if farming is subordinate to any other source of income. The Craig decision restored the original wording in subsection 31(1). However, in the finest example of “if we don’t like court decisions, we’ll change the rules,” the federal government decided to change the Income Tax Act in the 2013 budget and codify that the other sources of income must now be subordinate to farming income. T h e b u d g e t a l s o p ro p o s e s t o increase the RFL limit to $17,500 of deductible farm losses annually: $2,500 plus half of the next $30,000.

Dr. Davis’s response: “The mind effects of wheat are highly variable, depending on the unique susceptibility of the individual. Wheat consumption via the mind-active gliadin protein can show itself as behavioural outbursts in children with ADD (attention deficit disorder) or

autistic spectrum disorder, as food obsessions in those with a tendency toward binge eating or bulimia, worsening of paranoia in people with schizophrenia, or as appetite stimulation in everyday people. And, in (some) people … it can cause crippling depression.” Source:
