BSE ripple effects reverberate u|xhHEEJBy00001pzYv#:, Special Report | ‘A lot of people paid a high, high price,’ with BSE discovery BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

A laboratory, a microscope, a scientist and a slice of bovine brain that would change the world. That’s how the BSE crisis began May 20, 2003. Dr. Stefanie Czub of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency confirmed Canada’s first homegrown case of the cattle disease at midnight in Winnipeg’s National Centre for Foreign Animal Disease. She knew what it would mean, having seen its effects first hand in Germany. “The message from Ottawa was, to me for reassurance, ‘you are not alone,’ ”she said. “But when I was sitting there behind my microscope and making the call, I felt pretty lonely because I immediately realized what this would have, the impact on the farmer. I very vividly remembered what the impact of this first case was (in

Dr. Stefanie Czub immediately realized the implications of confirming a BSE diagnosis in May 2003. | FILE PHOTO Europe), and sure enough, the same was true for Canada, too.” Within days, 30 countries closed their borders to Canadian cattle and beef, as well as other livestock and meat.

Ten years later, the cattle industry has yet to fully recover. Looking back, Czub said the greatest general misconception about the confirmed Canadian case at the time was that international borders would reopen after only a short delay. Instead, it has taken years, with some countries still closed to live animals and meat from older ones. Scattered along the past decade are failed cattle operations, fewer feedlots, scrapped processing plants and an estimated $9 billion in industry losses. The BSE crisis was the impetus for herd traceability, forced the removal of specified risk materials from every carcass and spawned country-of-origin labelling in the United States, which plagues the industry to this day. In the past 10 years, Canada has detected 18 cases of BSE in cattle. A 19th case was found in an Alberta-born cow that had moved to Washington. SEE BSE EFFECTS, PAGE 2

Farm organizations expressed surprise and disappointment last week at recently announced job cuts, programming changes and facility closures that will affect close to 700 Agriculture Canada employees. In Alberta, Wild Rose Agricultural Producers president Lynn Jacobson called the changes at Agriculture Canada disappointing and shortsighted, suggesting that reduced spending on federal research programs contradicts what Ottawa has been saying about the importance of research and innovation. “We’re disappointed that the government is making these types of cuts,” Jacobson said. “We thought, with the way … the government had set things up in Growing Forward 2 and the references that were made to innovation and investments in research, that we weren’t going to be touched on that end of things, but what Ottawa is saying and what they are practicing are two different things.” In Manitoba, James Battershill, general manager of Keystone Agricultural Producers, said the announcement from Ottawa came as a surprise to the province and the research community in Brandon, which will see work related to beef grazing systems transferred to Lacombe, Alta. Unconfirmed reports suggest that at least eight researchers and their families based in Brandon will be faced with a decision to relocate to Alberta or remain in Manitoba and seek other employment. “We know that the federal government has certain fiscal responsibilities that they have to deal with and these cuts are obviously a part of that,” Battershill said. “The fact that this came as a big surprise to a lot of people is a little bit of a concern.… We definitely would have liked to have seen more consultation … so if there are negative impacts … or if there are possible ways that we can adapt to it in the near term, the more warning we get the better.” Battershill said the decision to move beef research programs from Brandon to Lacombe overlooks the fact that unique growing conditions and research needs exist in different parts of the country.




Farm groups disappointed “Sometimes there are unique differences between the provinces, so to have made-in-Manitoba research that responds to Manitoba conditions, that’s also something that’s very important,” he said. Officials from the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan said the changes will expand the scope of research at Agriculture’s Canada’s Swift Current Research Centre, but will hurt other Saskatchewan communities. APAS president Norm Hall said it is too early to determine the exact impact of the cuts on Saskatchewan’s agriculture sector. “As they always say, the devil’s in the details,” said Hall. “It might be good for Swift Current, but I’m not sure that it’s great for … agriculture.” At least nine former Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration offices and two Agriculture Canada research stations are slated for closure. Former PFRA offices in Dauphin and Beausejour, Man., Melville,

Watrous, North Battleford and Weyburn, Sask., and Westlock, Peace River and Red Deer, Alta., will be closing along with research stations at Onefour and Stavely, Alta. The cuts are part of an ongoing effort by Ottawa to transform the way Agriculture Canada operates and streamline program delivery, the department said in a May 13 email. In addition to transferring beef grazing research to Lacombe from Brandon, rangeland research at Lethbridge will move to Swift Current, Sask. Work previously conducted at Onefour, Alta., and Stavely will also be moved to Swift Current. Officials from Agriculture Canada offered few details about when the facilities will close and what will happen with employees and services at the 11 affected locations. Affected employees normally have four months to indicate whether they wish to stay within the federal civil service or receive a compensation package and seek employment elsewhere.

BSE effects reverberate today The last domestic case was detected in February 2011. Czub said evidence points to contaminated feed as the cause, and several trace outs led to one feed mill in central Alberta. Canada had imposed a stricter ban in 1997 on feed containing meat, blood and bone meal. BSE cases in animals born after 1997 are thought to be the result of accidental or deliberate use of banned feed, small amounts of infected feed mixed into new batches or poor enforcement of the regulations before the ban was extended. Czub said the drastic global reduction in BSE cases after feed bans were implemented in Canada and around the world shows contaminated feed is the likely cause of classical forms of the disease. Last year, there were 13 new BSE cases worldwide. At the peak of the disease in Great Britain, there were 35,000 cases in one year, Czub said.

But if feed is the cause, why is only one infected animal ever discovered in affected herds, as has always been the case in Canada? “For the scientific community, there are so many open questions and that is one of them,” she said. “It’s still super puzzling that it is really a single animal disease. It’s very rare that you have more than one case in a herd.” Czub has studied BSE throughout the past decade, with generous funding from federal and provincial governments and cattle industry organizations. “We have learned a lot and we did enormous leaps as well, so I think, funny as it sounds, it’s a success story the way Canada handled the BSE crisis. But a lot of people paid a high, high price.” SEE THE SPECIAL REPORT ON BSE STARTING ON PAGE 24

Saskatchewan flood fears ease Slow melt helped | ‘A number of things really went our way this year,’ says Water Security Agency BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Saskatchewan’s emergency management officials say the province experienced about half the flooding they expected after record snowfall last winter. “Looking back, we’ve been very fortunate to see a longer spring here and that the melt in the major systems came in stages,” said Water Security Agency spokesperson Patrick Boyle. “A number of things really went our way this year.” Officials didn’t know exactly what would happen because this was the latest spring melt in recorded history. The dry fall and prolonged melt resulted in more absorption and evaporation and less flooding. However, areas that are currently flooding and have saturated soil still aren’t out of the woods. Emergency management commissioner Duane McKay reminded reporters in a briefing last week that it was the heavy rain in the spring and summer of 2011 that caused widespread flooding and damage, mainly in the southeast. “Last year we saw 30 confirmed tornadoes,” he said, referring to other emergencies that could happen. “We are in a state of vigilance in terms of what may occur, obviously, because of our history in the last two or three years.” Communities that prepared for

Officials learned from the 2011 flood, shown above, that provincial emergency operations could be better designed to handle flooding. | FILE PHOTO flooding this spring that didn’t materialize are now starting to remove some of the mitigation works such as sandbags and barriers. However, McKay said people in an area including Blaine Lake, Prince Albert, Melfort and Humboldt should still be on guard because of localized flooding and standing water. The Indian Head, Weyburn, Regina and Moose Jaw areas saw above average runoff but mostly escaped flooding. McKay said flooding in two regions would have stretched the province’s resources. Officials learned from the 2011 flood that smaller municipali-

ties did not have the capacity to respond to such significant events, and that the provincial emergency operations could be better designed. “I think it was a very good operation,” he said of this year’s response. “I’m also very grateful that we didn’t get all the snow turn into water, which would have taxed us, I think, significantly.” McKay said Saskatchewan “has its act together” when it comes to flood response. Several areas were still under declared states of emergency before the Victoria Day weekend, including

the rural municipalities of Prince Albert, Humboldt, Rosthern, Fish Creek and Great Bend and the village of Borden. McKay said he expected several of those would end soon. Water levels on the Qu’Appelle lakes chain were expected to peak on the weekend without significant problems. Officials also continued to warn about fire hazards. Steve Roberts, executive director of wildfire management, said the province’s agricultural area was considered at high risk heading into the long weekend, and a pocket including Regina and Assiniboia was at extreme risk. Local and volunteer firefighters handle most grassfires in southern regions, and an exact number of fires so far this year wasn’t available. Municipalities are legally required to submit reports, McKay added, but sometimes they take a while to complete. Twenty-two people were still out of their homes as of May 16 because of flood damage or access issues. Seventy-four communities and four First Nations had inquired about designations under the Provincial Disaster Assistance Program, which allows residents to make damage claims. Of those, 25 had already been approved. Meanwhile, officials were working last week to determine how to move water off Highway 2, south of Prince Albert.

Recent rain has eased drought concerns that haunted much of the Prairies late last summer, at least in the first few inches of soil. However, there isn’t a lot of moisture further down, and the drought isn’t entirely gone. “There’s adequate moisture there to get everybody going, but we’re not going to be A-OK for the next four weeks until we get enough moisture,” said Scott MacKinnon, co-founder of Farmers Edge in Pilot Mound, Man. “Moisture reserves aren’t high. They’re average to below average. We’re not looking at enough moisture to hold us for a month. We’re going to need something.” That’s a common story across the Prairies. Farmers have appreciated dry seeding weather, but dry summers haven’t left much in the moisture bank to carry a crop through to harvest. Rain that was forecast for parts of the Prairies on the Victoria Day long weekend would have been a pleasant prospect for farmers with seeded crops but would have added more anxiety for others because of further seeding delays. CWB weather and crop situation analyst Bruce Burnett said the soil moisture situation on the Prairies is a result of weather phenomena over the past year. Last summer was dry almost everywhere except north-central Saskatchewan, and most soil went into the winter freeze-up with little subsoil moisture. However, a big snow pack blanketed the Prairies during the winter to add moisture and kept soil frost from going too deep. A long, slow melt this spr ing allowed moisture to seep into the soil, and an extremely dry period then hit from mid-April to mid-May, with only 25 percent of average precipitation. Most farmers had good topsoil moisture last week but relatively dry conditions in the subsoil. Farmers who get their crops seeded will quickly pivot to cloud watching, Burnett said. “When it’s cool, (the low overall soil reserves) don’t seem to matter, but when it warms up and crops start using up some of that reserve we got from the snow pack, we’re going to need some moisture,” he said. “You don’t have too much time before you need some rain.” Most farmers won’t be in imminent danger of running out of soil moisture, particularly if predicted rain arrives. The markets probably won’t start acting like drought is a possibility if the rains fall, said Chuck Penner of LeftField Commodity Research. However, farmers from southern Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan are beginning to report declining soil moisture reserves. “It’s a weird deal,” said MacKinnon, who farms in southwestern Manitoba, which lost millions of acres due to spring flooding in 2011 and 2012. “We’re coming off two years where we were drowning, but now we’re thinking about it becoming dry.”

Sask. to get tough on illegal drainage BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

The Saskatchewan government is working on legislation to crack down on illegal drainage. Ken Cheveldayoff, minister responsible for the Water Security Agency, said consultation will take place this summer and fall, online and through meetings with associations and individuals. He said the number of complaints since the flooding of 2010 and 2011 has put a strain on the agency and its staff. There were 364 complaints in 2011 and 2012, mostly neighbours complaining about neighbours. Of those, 331 were resolved with the WSA acting as a mediator, although 12 could not be settled and resulted in orders for the works to be closed. Thirty-three complaints are still outstanding. Cheveldayoff said May 17 there are 81 active files. Many are requests for assistance and a dozen are formal complaints. In response to questions from opposition critic Cathy Sproule during WSA budget estimates, the minis-

ter said dealing with illegal drainage is a priority for the WSA. “Right now, we have very few tools at our disposal,” he said. “We can investigate and order closure, but beyond that we don’t have a lot of tools.” He said officials are looking at what other provinces do, particularly Manitoba, which faces some of the same challenges. “What we’re looking at through legislation or the creation of legislation is the feasibility of administrative fines,” he said. Enforcement is the difficult part of passing legislation. Cheveldayoff said it isn’t practical or financially possible to hire many more employees. Manitoba has hired 13 people, he added. WSA staff had to be reassigned around the province to investigate after the most recent spate of complaints. The Yorkton area was a hot spot. Cheveldayoff also said some people lobby him to allow more drainage, but they are the minority. Drainage is permitted in cases where landowners have worked with the WSA and obtained the nec-

essary permits. There were resolutions both for and against drainage at the most recent Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities convention. Sproule said the government should take a harder stance against people who drain without proper authority. She said the previous minister had written letters to people asking them not to drain, and that likely didn’t work for people who chose to break the law. “Certainly more teeth and a more forceful approach from the government is necessary to stop people from really causing havoc to their neighbours downstream,” she said. Sproule said she looks forward to seeing the proposed legislation. Cheveldayoff didn’t say when the legislation would be ready to be introduced. “We want to just take our time to put a plan in place that frankly doesn’t cost the government a lot more money.” He said flooding affected 18 million acres over two years, and the cost in lost production has been estimated at $4.4 billion.

A major canola crusher is calling for a retreat from the 17-year march toward genetically modified canola. Pacific Coast Canola, a newly constructed processing plant in Warden, Washington, will take as much nonGM canola as it can find. “The market for non-GMO canola in the west coast of the United States seems to have come on very quickly and very strong,” said Joel Horn, president of Legumex Walker Inc., which owns 85 percent of Pacific Coast Canola. Demand for the specialty oil is driven by a push for GM labelling. Whole Foods Market recently announced that all products in its U.S. and Canadian stores must be labelled by 2018 to indicate whether they contain genetically modified ingredients. The company bills itself as the world’s leader in natural and organic foods, with more than 340 grocery stores in North America and the United Kingdom. Plenty of companies on the U.S. west coast are taking similar steps, despite the failure of Proposition 37, an attempt to introduce mandatory GM labelling in California. Elizabeth Sloan, president of Sloan Trends Inc., a California company that studies food trends, told delegates attending the Canola Council of Canada’s annual convention earlier this year that GM labelling is no longer just an idle threat. “If there is anyone in this room who thinks that GMOs are not going to be an issue, I’m telling you you’re smoking dope,” she said. Sloan recently attended the Natural Products Expo West trade show in Anaheim, California, where thousands of food retailers were showcasing their latest healthy food products. “Nearly 90 percent of them had GMO-free on the label,” she said. Sloan was surprised to hear senior

Walmart officials say they will no longer oppose GM labelling. Horn said the sudden demand for non-GM canola oil is strong, and customers are willing to pay a healthy premium. Pacific Coast Canola has already taken its first delivery of non-GM canola seed and has contracted a small amount of this year’s acreage with growers in the western United States. The problem is that little non-GM canola is grown in North America, which makes planting seed hard to find. According to the International Service for the Acquisition of AgriBiotech Applications, 97.5 percent of the canola grown in Canada last year was GM. “Everyone knows (acreage) is small, but we’re doing everything we can to make it significant,” said Horn. “We’ll crush as much non-GMO as we can get our hands on right now because the demand for the oil is so high.” He hopes seed producers will ramp up production this year so that there is ample supply of non-GM planting seed for the company’s 2014 contracting program. Growers are excited about the crop because the premium they receive for growing it offsets the yield disadvantage compared to GM canola. Horn said the Warden plant is ideally situated to meet the burgeoning demand for the specialty oil from the multibillion-dollar food processing industr y in the Pacific Northwest.


NRC sails new waters heading into industry-focused research BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A major change in focus at the National Research Council of Canada is not expected to affect its staffing levels or facilities, according to NRC president John McDougall. The council announced earlier this month that it is being transformed into an industry-focused research and technology organization that tailors its activities to meet the needs of private sector businesses and industry partners.

Ottawa has committed $121 million over two years to assist with the transition. McDougall said he does not anticipate immediate changes to the NRC’s annual budget, which is generally $900 million to $1 billion per year. “The last two (federal) budgets have each provided … the continuing support to allow us to move along, so they’ve sustained us,” he said. “We’re in the process of repointing the ship and after we get things repointed and we see how this new

approach is playing out, I think that’s the time to have the conversations about (budgets).” NRC staffing levels have been reduced in recent months as the council re-evaluates requirements. However, McDougall said numbers are expected to rebound as research priorities evolve. NRC staffing levels have historically been maintained at around 4,000. “Overall, our level has come down a little bit, but we would expect it to get back (to) about where it was,” McDougall said. “The expectation is

that we’ll probably see growth because we expect to see more industry participation.” He said the refocused NRC will be an “industry-inspired organization” that identifies industry needs and appoints key personnel to address them. “Before, what we really had were projects that were driven by the principal investigator,” he said. “Now, we’re … identifying the issues, we’re building the team and we’re steering the researchers to put their expertise in that direction.”

In Saskatoon, the participation of NRC researchers in the recently announced Canadian Wheat Alliance will result in fewer staff and resources involved in canola research. Canola genomics and oilseed research had been a major programming area at the NRC’s Saskatoon facility in recent years. To accommodate work in the wheat alliance, the NRC will increase research activities in the areas of genomics and the development of enhanced and more efficient breeding technologies.






Wheat research aims to develop high yield varieties Canadian Wheat Alliance | Goal is to develop varieties tolerant to drought, heat, cold and disease BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A new program aimed at improving wheat yields and developing more robust wheat varieties has been launched in Saskatchewan. The Canadian Wheat Alliance, announced May 16 in Saskatoon, will involve wheat researchers from Agriculture Canada, the University of Saskatchewan and the National Research Council. The program will see an additional $97 million spent on upstream wheat research over the next five years and will result in new tools and breeding technologies. Once developed, those tools will be commercialized and used by wheat breeders to develop varieties with improved tolerance to drought, heat, cold and disease, and reduced nitrogen fertilizer requirements. Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz called the alliance an unprecedented, long-term, collaborative effort aimed at improving the profitability of producers and the wheat sector as a whole. Ottawa’s contribution is set at $85 million over the next five years. Ritz said the federal contribution will consist of new money, over and above what Agriculture Canada now spends on wheat breeding programs. The Saskatchewan government will contribute $5 million, much of which will be used to hire additional staff at the U of S. “Meeting the new global demand for wheat will take partnerships to pool our expertise and leverage our resources,” Ritz said. “Our common goal is to support and advance research that will improve the profitability of Canadian wheat producers as well as the sector as a whole.” New technologies that come out of the project are expected to boost Canadian wheat yields by as much as 10 bushels per acre and generate additional farmgate revenues of nearly $5 billion over the next two decades, Ritz said. It has yet to be determined who will use the new technologies, but Ottawa has already indicated it intends to scale back funding for downstream wheat breeding activities as private sector companies increase investments. Work conducted within the alliance is expected to result in new wheat varieties in about a decade. “These robust new varieties will better withstand what Mother Nature throws at them from drought to heat to cold to disease,” Ritz said. “Over the next 10 to 15 years, the alliance is aiming for improvements of 20 to 30 percent in yields.” Faouzi Bekkaoui, executive director of the Wheat Improvement Flagship Program, said 100 to 150 researchers

Meeting the new global demand for wheat will take partnerships to pool our expertise and leverage our resources. GERRY RITZ FEDERAL AGRICULTURE MINISTER

will be involved in the alliance, including experts at the NRC, the U of S and Agriculture Canada. “It’s a national program, but most of them are based in Saskatoon and Saskatchewan,” Bekkaoui said. Work funded through the alliance will be divided into six areas: • Genomics assisted breeding will improve genomic resources allowing for faster gene discovery and the identification and validation of key traits. • Wheat improvement through cell technologies is aimed at improving the efficiency of doubled haploid systems, which allow breeders to cut two to four years off the time needed to develop a wheat line. • Researchers will focus on enhanced fusarium and rust tolerance characterizing disease resistant genes and breeding new varieties with durable fusarium and rust resistance. • Abiotic stress experts will be tasked with improving the crop’s tolerance to drought, heat and cold temperatures. • The alliance’s development project will identify and deploy genes associated with plant performance and seed yield. • The beneficial biotic interaction module will enhance nutrient use efficiency and improve plant health through modified microbial communities. Bekkaoui said much of the research funded through the alliance will augment work that is already taking place at research institutions. The program will ensure a more coordinated and collaborative approach to conducting wheat research, he added. For example, work conducted under the alliance’s genomics assisted breeding stream will involve the same researchers that are now involved in Genome Canada’s Canadian Triticum Advancement through Genomics project. The additional funding will allow DNA sequencing experts to broaden the scope of their work and gain a better insight into the genetic resources available to wheat breeders. U of S president Ilene Busch Vishniac said the alliance’s research will complement work that is already taking place at the university, including plant breeding efforts at its Crop Development Centre.

Against a backdrop of fresh vegetables at the Stonebridge Co-op in Saskatoon, federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz announced the launch of the Safe Food for Canadians Action Plan May 17. The plan aims to strengthen food safety rules with more effective inspections and make consumer information more available. As well, meat processing facilities that produce mechanically tenderized beef cuts have until July 2 to label those products as such and provide cooking instructions. | WILLIAM DEKAY PHOTO


B.C. fruit blossoms bountiful, but some areas hit with frost Soft fruits may be affected | The season is off to an early start and growers are already working to expand export markets BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

The wealth of blossoms on fruit trees in British Columbia’s prime Okanagan Valley fruit growing region bode well for a good crop, according to growers. “I probably had the best blossom I’ve had in three years, at least, maybe four,” Kelowna fruit grower Fred Steele said last week. “But it came quick so we’ve got to wait now for the set in mid-June. But I think we’re going to have a good crop. I think there’s going to be a fair amount of fruit.” B.C. Fruit Growers Association president Jeet Dukhia said there was also a heavy blossom in his region near Vernon, as well as in the southern part of the valley. “It started pretty good, with a heavy blossom here and down south, and we were happy about that,” said Dukhia. The early fly in the ointment was frost in late April, which affected considerable portions of soft fruit crop blossoms, including peaches and apricots in Penticton and Summerland. Those fruits bloom earlier than cherries and apples and were vulnerable when frost hit. Cherries were also affected in the southern valley, with damage up to 60 percent in some cases, Dukhia

Apples bloom later than soft fruit and aren’t as vulnerable to late spring frost. | FILE PHOTO said. However, it is too soon to tell how yield will be affected. The Okanagan Valley is well known for its microclimates, so frost damage was patchy. Steele said warm weather earlier this spring pushed the crop about one month ahead of schedule. An early season brings additional threats from insects, so Steele said he was happy for cooler weather last week. Extended hot weather might also bring rapid melt of major snow pack still in the mountains, so cooler weather is also welcome for that reason, Steele added.

Dukhia said growers are already pondering potential crop sales this year. Large amounts of B.C. fruit were shipped to Eastern Canada last year when growers there lost 70 to 85 percent of their crop because of snow during blossom. That scenario won’t be repeated, but Dukhia said he is working with others to open up the Chinese market to B.C. cherries. New cherry varieties now allow crop to be harvested from late June through September. “That’s why we are fighting so hard to break into the Chinese market. We are working closely with the CFIA,” he said. On the apple side, markets will depend as always on Washington state’s apple crop and how much is available for export. “It’s always an issue. Whenever they have over 100 million boxes of apples, we have big concern about their crop. Their crop decides the prices,” Dukhia said. He also expressed concern about the agricultural budget following the May 14 election that returned the Liberal government. “We have the lowest agriculture budget in the country, even lower than Newfoundland,” he said. The national average for agricultural spending is $57 per capita but $15 per capita in B.C., according to his calculations.

Barley growers partner with brewery Contracted for $300 per tonne | California company reaches agreement with Alberta growers to produce custom crop BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

On May 8, Ross Keller seeded Meredith barley, the first crop in the ground. He already knows what he will be paid for the crop and where it will be sold. The New Norway, Alta., producer is one of 12 farmers who have contracted to sell malt barley to a California brewery for three years. In exchange, the farmers know what they will be paid, know they have a guaranteed sale, w ill receive a bonus for better-thanspec barley and will receive extra money if the price of fertilizer, diesel or pesticides jump. “The main benefit I view is we have a set price for our commodity we are producing,” said Keller. “Yes, Mother Nature still plays a role in that, but you have a better idea of what kind of potential returns you have and it gives you a better handle on how many dollars per acre you want to put into the investment,” said Keller, who has been growing malt barley consistently for almost 20 years. Lagunitas brewery of Petaluma, Calif., Rahr Malting of Alix, Alta., and

the 12 farmers have formed the Chinook Arch Barley Grower Program to find a better model for growing, pricing and buying malt barley. Leon Sharyon, chief financial officer of Lagunitas, said he wanted a way to encourage farmers to grow malt barley. “What I am looking for is longterm availability of supply,” said Sharyon, who based the malt barley contracts on a similar hopbuying program the company created in 2008 to help smooth out price spikes. “What I want is to always make sure there are economic reasons to have us in their rotation. Maybe we aren’t their most important crop, I’ll take second best, but I want to be second. Maybe in some years I’ll be the best,” said Sharyon, who is concerned malt barley production will decline unless it is competitively priced with canola. Kevin Sich, manager of the grain department for Rahr, said the program has been a success for the brewery, farmers and Rahr. The barley is malted in Alix and shipped to California.

“Lagunitas adopted this group of growers that basically grow exclusively for them and in turn they gave financial rewards,” said Sich, who introduced brewery officials to some of their top malt producers. “These guys are serious barley growers,” said Sich. Strathmore farmer Brent McBean said the project is unique and exciting. “It’s completely alien to what we’re used to in Western Canada.” The three-year contract with the farmers would not have been possible without changes to the Canadian Wheat Board in 2012 that ended the board monopoly on sales of export barley. With the wheat board out of the picture, Lagunitas could sign contracts directly with six growers last y e a r. T h i s y e a r t h e p ro g ra m expanded to include 12 growers who are supplying Lagunitas with 16,000 tonnes of barley, about 90 percent of its malt requirements. Lagunitas has always bought malt from Rahr, but now it has gone a step further and met the farmers. The growers were

chosen because of their ability and commitment to growing malt, and because of their locations across the province. They farm from New Norway in east-central Alberta and south to Strathmore near Calgary. The geographic diversity reduces risk in case of poor weather. The contract also has an Act of God clause that releases farmers from their contracts if they are hailed out, or their barley doesn’t make malt because of poor weather. Sharyon said when writing the contracts, he wasn’t sure what a fair price would be, but he knew he has bought malt from $210 to $390 per tonne. They settled on a base price of $300 per tonne for the barley. The contracts also contain a formula to account for increases in input costs based on Alberta Agriculture’s Average Farm Input Prices list. Sharyon also wanted a way to encourage growers to strive for the best quality malt. The farmers were offered an extra premium if the protein is less than 11 percent. It wouldn’t amount to an extra cost for Lagunitas because higher quality malt means brewers can use less of it to

produce higher quality beer. The next milestone of the program is expected in two years when the next three-year contract is negotiated. The contract will need to take into account the price of competing crops, inputs and other factors that will encourage the farmers to continue with program. “We haven’t figured out what the mechanism is going to be. It was never about what the current barley price is, it was about what was fair. What would make you want to put it in the ground for your farm.” McBean said the contract’s design speaks to the integrity of Lagunitas and its desire to work with farmers. “They make us feel like this is a p a r t n e r s h i p a n d w e’ re h e re together,” said McBean. For Keller, having the security of good price and a guaranteed market is important. “Are we always going to be guaranteed to get the best price? No, but we always have a home for our commodity that we produce. Rather than grow it and find a place for it, that isn’t always the best way to do it.”

Strong demand to support lentil prices Prices buoyed | Global shortfalls and strong exports perk up Canada’s lentil outlook BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Lentil prices should remain strong because of soaring demand and shrinking supply, say two major pulse processors. “Production shortfalls projected for India may represent a demand catalyst that we expect may continue through the second half of the year,” Murad AlKatib, president of Alliance Grain Traders Inc., said in a news release. He also expects a strong export program to Turkey this year. The combination should help correct a global supply-demand imbalance that pushed lentil prices down in 2012. Al-Katib recently told investment analysts that the recovery in lentil markets started in the first quarter of 2013 and has continued into the first half of the second quarter. Canadian lentil exports were up 76 percent over the first quarter of 2012, while pea shipments increased 122 percent. Al-Katib is forecasting the usual slowdown in sales during the second half of the second quarter as India’s and Turkey’s crops hit the market. He anticipates demand will return with full force starting in August as India restocks its supplies following the Ramadan festival. Demand should remain strong well into the new crop year due to what AlKatib believes is a disappointing rabi harvest. He said he bases that assumption on AGT’s unusually strong sales program to the country during the first four months of the year. “In traditional years, if India has a normal crop we don’t ship anything into India in February, March and April,” he said. The Indian government is forecasting 17.6 million tonnes of combined kharif and rabi season production, which would require 3.1 million

tonnes of imports to meet annual pulse demand. However, significant February and March rainfall in northern India, a key production region for pulses, may have reduced production. The U.S. Department of Agriculture thinks the country could import four million tonnes of pulses. Turkey’s harvest is just getting underway, and the USDA is forecasting 460,000 tonnes of lentil production. AGT said unofficial estimates in the lentil trade suggest Turkey’s harvest will be closer to last year’s production of 375,000 tonnes. That would lead to strong imports of red and green lentils to meet Turkey’s domestic needs and supply its re-export program to the Middle East and North Africa. Al-Katib said all signals point to the continuation of the “upbeat tone” in pulse markets during the first half of 2013 as concerns over credit availability and currency volatility subside in importing countries. “Our expectation is that import demand may increase in core consumption markets,” he said. Legumex Walker Inc. also highlighted the return to normalized demand in its quarterly results. “Problems with winter crops on the Indian subcontinent have been and could continue to be a major demand catalyst for Canadian pulses,” the company said in its Management’s Discussion & Analysis document. President Joel Horn said global pulse demand has been depressed for a long time, warehouses are empty and customers are finally starting to restock. In addition to strong imports from India and Turkey, there has also been a resurgence in buying in the Middle East. “We definitely are starting to see more demand for our products. There’s more buyers, better prices in

Agriculture Canada is forecasting a 17 percent year-on-year decrease in lentil production, while the United States is calling for a 26 percent decline south of the border. | FILE PHOTO our markets, without a doubt,” he said. Horn said it appears global pulse production will fall this year. “We’re just too early in the cycle, but yes, there seems to be a drumbeat going on that we’re going to have a decline in various parts of the world, and if that does happen yes, that would be good for prices,” he said. Agriculture Canada is forecasting a 17 percent year-on-year decrease in lentil production, while the USDA is calling for a 26 percent decline south of the border.

“Lower supply, decreases in carryin stocks and increased import demand may have the result of correcting global pulse prices,” said AlKatib. It’s a different story on the supply side for peas, with Canada expected to increase production by six percent and the United States by 28 percent. AGT said that late seeding in Canada and the U.S. may favour a switch to pulses from oilseeds because of the short maturity of peas and lentils. LWI said pulses are usually seeded

early, but they may go in the ground last this year because producers will likely want to plant long season crops such as wheat and canola first due to the shortened seeding window. That could reduce yield potential, but LWI still expects ample supply for its business operations. “We’re not currently feeling nervous,” said Horn. “Are we watching it very closely? You bet.” FOR A RELATED STORY, SEE PAGE 76



Durum prices expected to dip with increased prairie acreages Seeding conditions on Prairies could still influence prices despite most world durum crops already in the ground BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

The world’s durum crop is doing OK, and good seeding weather on the Prairies will probably alleviate some of the supply concerns hanging over the market, analysts say. And with prairie durum acreage encouraged by recent strong prices, the result could be larger supplies in 2013-14 and weaker crop prices. “I think we’ve got some short-term tightness that’s keeping the market supported,” said Chuck Penner of LeftField Commodity Research. “Once we get into the new (crop) year, if (the prairie crop) gets into the ground well, I think you’ll see some softness.” New crop prices will depend on seeding conditions on the Prairies

and northern U.S. Plains, growing conditions in Europe and harvesting conditions in North Africa. Most of the world’s durum crops have already been planted and some are well advanced, which means the final prairie acreage and yield is the remaining unknown factor in the supply and demand balance. “It depends on what happens with our seeding,” said Bruce Burnett, CWB’s chief crop conditions analyst. Canada dominates world trade in d u r u m, p ro d u c i n g f a r g re at e r amounts of the crop than the domestic market can consume. The U.S. crop is smaller and mostly serves the U.S. domestic market. European crops serve their domestic markets as well as North Africa. North Africa is both a key growing region and the world’s most impor-

tant importing region. The size of its crops directly affect the amount the region must import. Burnett said North African crops look OK. There are dry parts of Tunisia and pockets of dryness in Algeria, but generally the crop is good quality and a decent size. “They have received timely enough rainfall to stop yields declining too dramatically,” said Burnett. “Overall, the crops are looking to be average size in North Africa.” The Spanish crop also suffered from dryness, but the situation there has improved. Penner said Statistics Canada’s estimate of 5.1 million acres of durum in Western Canada appears to be “fairly reasonable.” If it develops well and the North African crop also turns out as well as

expected, “that could cut into the export market, and that’s what makes or breaks the durum market every year.” Jon Driedger of FarmLink Marketing Solutions, who had expected lower acreage than Statistics Canada reported, said the strong cash market will likely make the Statistics Canada number come true. “ That’ll probably go in,” said Driedger. “They certainly don’t seem to be shying away from it.” Seeding conditions in southern Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan have been good, so there has been little weather reason to reduce acreage, the analysts said.

Attractive flax prices may hike acres

Little durum crosses borders

China helps exports rebound | Acreage dropped after the Triffid crisis



There’s nothing like good old-crop prices to bring in more new crop acreage. Flax might be a beneficiary of that situation this year, analysts say. Recent prices of $17 per bushel caught a lot of farmers’ attention, just as prices for big acreage crops such as wheat were falling. The rally was sparked by demand from several buyers. It happened as farmers were heading into their fields to seed, so they still had a chance to play with their acreage decisions. “Prices have been pretty good, so for guys who are looking for alternatives in their rotation, it could fit,” said Jon Driedger of FarmLink Marketing Solutions. “Around the margins, probably a few guys put in some more flax that they had been thinking of putting into other crops.” Old crop bids had settled back and were harder to find by May 15, but the high-price message had already been received by many growers. New crop bids of about $14 per bu. also haven’t discouraged acreage. “If you can get the yield, that’s not a bad price,” said Driedger. Flax has sta g e d a s i g n if ic ant recovery since the Triffid crisis, when tiny amounts of the genetically modified variety were found in conventional flax. Canada suddenly lost most of the European market, which was the main customer of prairie flax. Acreage shrank and few thought the crop would find much replacement demand or alternate markets. But then China started buying considerable amounts of flax, filling in the void left by the Europeans. Shipments to Europe began again, with marketers finding a way to reach

dairy and linoleum markets without running afoul of European GMO rules. As well, prairie farmers benefited from the dryness in Russia and Kazakhstan last year, which robbed

Europe of its main flax source. Europeans found themselves once more buying Canadian flax, this time c o m p e t i n g w i t h C h i na f o r t h e oilseed.

It was that competition for flax from all directions that helped drive prices so high, analysts say. “We’ve got solid business going to the (United) States, solid movement to China, and the extra little piece is Europe and it looks like there might be one more shipment this (crop) year,” said Chuck Penner of LeftField Commodity Research. European demand could become an even more bullish factor if the former Soviet Union continues to struggle with dryness. “It’s all depending on what happens with Russia and Kazakhstan,” said Penner.

American farmers cheered the end of the CWB monopoly, feared the possibility of Canadian grain flowing south to local elevators and hoped to be able to ship their crop north. Farmers are happy now but unsure how everything’s going to work out for them, said Doug Opland, president of the U.S. Durum Growers Association. “I think it’s a good deal,” said Opland, who believes CWB had a disruptive effect on the small North American durum market. However, even though the border is now officially open, the reality is still complicated for North Dakota farmers. Many near the Canada-U.S. border would like to be able to ship their durum to Canadian elevators if they see good prices, but regulations generally prevent U.S. grain being delivered to elevators as milling grade. “We had an elevator that wanted to do it on the Canadian side,” said Opland. “But they gave up. They said it was too much trouble.” However, the influx of Canadian grain trucks that some North Dakota farmers feared has not shown up at local elevators, relieving anxieties that were growing as the end of the CWB monopoly approached. “Now people think that’s not going to happen,” said Opland. However, American durum growers are still annoyed by many of the same marketing issues that confront Canadian farmers. There’s no good futures contract for durum hedging, cash prices are volatile and only sporadically posted, and buyers are too fussy. “Durum acres are going down because contracting (for other crops) is so competitive and the discounts on durum are so bad,” said Opland. “Farmers are scared of it. It’s a risky crop to raise. You think you’re going to get $9 and you might get $7 (due to downgrading discounts).” That works out to a difference of $100 per acre for many growers, which means “it’s hard to pencil that out.”


Lack of effective futures market complicates durum marketing BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

The prairie durum market continues to develop and evolve, but only in fits and starts. Farmers still aren’t sure how they’re going to price durum in the future, advisers say. Will it trade like a big crop listed on futures markets or like a smaller crop that relies on cash trade? “It’s jerky,” said Derek Squair, manager of Agri-Trend Marketing. “It’s been pretty jerky post-wheat board.” Jon Driedger of FarmLink Marketing had a similar view. “It’s not a lot different than selling flax or peas,” he said. “It trades just like any other market that doesn’t have a futures market.” ICE Futures Canada lists a durum

futures contract, but it rarely trades, so the cash market is the only real price discovery mechanism. That means prices can vary substantially from buyer to buyer, depending on their processing needs or the commercial sales they have made. Grain elevators generally post cash prices for durum and occasionally offer new crop prices. However, Driedger said most elevator companies haven’t tended to offer futures-linked contracts, which makes sense because it’s hard to find a wheat futures contract that follows cash durum prices closely enough. “That durum-Minneapolis wheat contract relationship can be really volatile,” said Driedger. It means most durum hedging is

done with flat price sales, and farmers don’t mind leaving lots of new crop durum unpriced. “They’re used to being patient and maybe carrying it over if they don’t like the price,” said Driedger. “Most durum growers are used to growing it and sitting on it.” It makes durum similar to special crops such as flax and peas. Squair said his firm has dealt with the sporadic nature of durum bids by finding buyers and organizing transportation. It has been working with U.S. durum mills, terminals in Thunder Bay and offshore buyers who want to take possession at Vancouver. The demand and prices from these places can vary, so it takes a bit of work to find the best price and get it to the destination.

We’ll see offers, then they’ll disappear. We don’t see anyone really building longs or any sort of a position. DEREK SQUAIR AGRI-TREND MARKETING

“We’re arbitraging that all the time, making sure that we’re looking at U.S. prices and working that back to Canadian (prairie elevator) prices and making sure that’s competitive to what we can get if we were to do the logistics on it,” said Squair. He said he also uses Kansas City hard red winter wheat futures and Chicago soft red winter wheat futures

as hedging mechanisms, especially for new crop that can’t be easily priced. Pricing and hedging durum can be a workout. “We’ll see offers, then they’ll disappear. We don’t see anyone really building longs or any sort of a position,” said Squair. Driedger said the final status of durum marketing is still unclear, with the crop being similar to special crops in some ways and to a futuresbased crop like wheat in other ways. However, not many farmers are complaining because they have been making money. “Guys have done pretty good with durum this year,” said Driedger. “Most guys have been able to sell it around eight bucks plus. Growers respond to that.”





Enthusiasm over soybeans cools in Manitoba Many on the fence | Ideally, soybeans should be seeded between May 15 and 25 to mature before frost BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Fields have dried and soil temperatures are well suited for seeding, but western Manitoba growers are being cautious with soybeans, says a Manitoba Agriculture representative. Scott Chalmers, a crop diversification expert in Melita, Man., said extremely cold temperatures in April and a late start to spring have made growers wary of planting something new, like soybeans. “The fluctuations in climate has kind of thrown guys for a loop,” he said. Dennis Lange, a Manitoba Agriculture farm production adviser and

soybean specialist, agreed that novice soybean growers might not experiment with beans or increase acres this year. Since last fall, industry watchers have speculated that Manitoba soy area would reach a million acres in 2013, shattering last year’s record of 850,000 acres. At this point, Lange isn’t sure what to think about that. “I’m still flipping a coin on that one,” he said. “During the winter months there was a lot of excitement about growing soybeans. Now I’m hearing reports of growers getting a little antsy (about) growing beans in western Manitoba.” Frank Prince, who farms 4,500

Commodities slide in popularity



ne of the largest U.S. banks says the commodities super cycle is dead. The soaring growth of China and other developing countries in the last 10 years led to fast growing demand for all the raw materials needed for expanding construction, manufacturing, transportation and for increasingly prosperous people, including metal, minerals, energy and agricultural goods. That drove the price of commodities higher as demand exceeded supply. The high prices rationed demand and encouraged producers to invest to increase output. Strong commodity prices also affected exchange rates, with the currencies of countries that produce a lot of commodities, like Canada’s loonie, rising against other currencies. But now many analysts say slowing growth in China, anemic European and Amer ican economies and increased output of commodities have put supply and demand back in rough balance. Citigroup Global Markets Inc. issued a report last week that said “the death bells ring for the commodity super cycle after its duly noted sunset.” The coming decade will present opportunities “based on how individual commodities will perform against one another and against broader market indicators such as equities or currencies,” the Citi researchers said. I’m no economist so I can’t say if Citi is right, but it is clear that for investors, commodities are not the money makers they were a few years ago.

For this year, the place to be has been the U.S. stock markets where indexes have climbed 15 percent or more and the Dow and Standard and Poor’s 500 are at record highs. We have seen a lot of fund money exit commodity investments and move into the stock market. This does not necessarily mean that commodities will become a money loser and as Citi noted, commodities vary in their nature and in their performance relative to each other. The annual production cycle on a farm is a lot different than a mining company’s decision to spend billions of dollars and five years developing a new mine. The farmer has more ability to quickly make minor adjustment to production than the miner, but is far more dependent on the weather. The implication for farmers and the prices they receive for their crops and livestock during a dying commodities super cycle is perhaps subtle. A commodities boom attracts investment money and speculators. That money does not necessarily alter price trends created by supply and demand fundamentals, but when it rushes in to a rally or decline, it can make swings more volatile, with the highs higher and lows lower. The future of commodities is also affected by the central bank stimulus policies of several major economies, including the United States and Japan. With interest rates already at historic lows, central banks are using other tools to increase the money supply with a desire to increase bank lending and consumer and corporate spending. That is supposed to kick start weak economies and reduce high unemployment rates. The U.S. Federal Reserve, known as the Fed, has had three rounds of s t i mu l u s s i n c e 2 0 0 8 , w i t h t h e tongue twister name quantitative easing. The latest, called QE3, essentially prints money, pumping $85 billion a

the ground, only to emerge at the same time as his soybeans, he said. Lange concurred it’s not necessary to plant soybeans in early May. Ideal time is between May 15 and 25 in western Manitoba. Chalmers, who was seeding soybeans last week into the Westman Agricultural Diversification Organization’s test plots near Melita, said sowing conditions were good, with soil temperature around Melita at 12.8 C in the middle of May, well above the 10 C minimum for beans. Prince remains confident. In fact, he may seed up to 3,000 acres of beans if conditions become wet because he believes the crop is hardier than others in excessive moisture.




Some farmers might assume that soybeans should be seeded as early as possible. In practice, though, soybeans should be seeded in late May, Prince noted. “They’re all cutting acres right now because … they want to have their beans in May 1,” said Prince, who began seeding last week and intends to plant at least 1,200 acres of soybeans. “Beans aren’t a May 1 crop…. I’d rather have them in June 1 than May 1…. Beans hate frost and beans hate cold ground.” Last year Prince seeded soybeans May 28, about 10 days later than most neighbours. Thanks to warm soil, his beans emerged in three days. The beans planted 10 days earlier sat in

month of new greenbacks into the U.S economy. It is a blunt instrument with all sor ts of influences. When you increase the supply of something, its price is supposed to fall, so the value of the U.S. buck should fall, lowering the price of commodities priced in the currency. But the buck is hanging in pretty strong. It is also supposed to spark a modest rate of inflation to encourage spending now because the price will be higher in the future. But U.S. inflation is running about half the Fed’s target of two percent, Some analysts say QE3 is helping to fuel the U.S. stock market rally and some say it is helping to lower the unemployment rate, although job growth is fragile with good numbers one month followed by disappointments the next. The Federal Reserve has stated it intends to keep running QE3 until the U.S. unemployment rate falls to 6.5 percent. It now stands at 7.5 percent. But Fed officials are split on how effective the policy is and how long to continue it. Last week, three Fed officials said QE3 should end as early as this summer. That sparked a rally in the U.S. dollar and weighed on the futures price of several commodities. If QE3 actually ends earlier than expected, it could be an additional negative factor for commodity values. These broader factors certainly won’t have the kind of effect on grain prices as, say, three weeks of hot dry weather in the Midwest in July, but they do affect the market environment. To use a real estate analogy, it is easier for the price of your house to rise when you live in the hot new neighbourhood with trendy coffee houses opening than when they discover it sits atop an old burial ground and spooky apparitions are sighted at midnight.

FED CATTLE STEADY Fed steers averaged $119.48 per hundredweight, up seven cents while heifers were $118.16, down 21 cents. Dressed sales were mostly steady at $200 per cwt. delivered. Uncertain beef demand beyond Memorial Day in the U.S. saw the packing sector there apprehensive. A handful of fed cattle traded south on May 17, getting an extra bang from the depreciated Canadian buck. Weekly sales fell 14 percent to 14,215 head. Showlist offerings are expected to increase as more calves become market ready.

COWS UP D1, D2 cow prices edged higher to range $74-$85 to average $79.20 while D3s ranged $65-$76 to average $70.17. Railgrade prices ranged $151-$156. Dryness in the western U.S. Plains has led to heavy culling in beef and dairy. Non-fed exports to May 4 rose four percent to 7,266 head.

HEAVY FEEDERS DOWN Moderate to heavy feeders are aggressively discounted while demand for

lighter feeders remains strong. Auction volume is higher than normal due to trading of feeders typically marketed in late winter or early spring. The extra volume is limiting the ability of feeder prices to rise. L o c a l a n d e a s t e r n Ca na d i a n demand for replacement quality heifers has supported prices. Alberta and Saskatchewan replacement heifers sold at $975-$1,050 per head. Weekly Alberta auction volume fell 16 percent to 25,358.

Taxpayers deserve proper Ag Canada program audits


roducers, like any businesspeople worth their salt, demand an acceptable return on the investments they make. It should be no different for Agriculture Canada program spending. But once again, the department has caught the eye of the federal auditor general for falling short of expectations when it comes to evaluating the effectiveness of its spending. Auditor general Michael Ferguson referenced Agriculture Canada and two other departments — human resources and skills development, and fisheries and oceans — as those most behind in their program evaluations in a report to Parliament April 30. In the report, Ferguson said five of 18 direct grant and contribution programs at Agriculture Canada have not been properly evaluated. That ranked the department at the bottom with 72 percent of its program spending having undergone the necessary review for need and effectiveness. Agriculture Canada quickly responded by promising to do better, as well it should. The next five-year cycle for program evaluation started April 1, and the department needs to improve its track record well before the cycle’s completion in 2018. It is not the first time. In 2009, then auditor general Sheila Fraser took Agriculture Canada to task for failing to conduct assessments on much of its program spending. The department admitted it had completed about half of its planned program evaluations between 2004 and 2008, and only 11 percent of spending was evaluated for effectiveness. Fraser cited the Prairie Grain Roads Program, which spent $175 million to strengthen roads that farmers were pressed into using more often to truck grain as railways and elevator companies centralized their operations. She stopped short of calling it a bad program. The problem was, she said, who knew? Part of the problem then, she found, was

that information on the effectiveness of spending was not regularly collected. Just as it did last month following the 2013 report, Agriculture Canada agreed in 2009 that it must do better. Sometimes the song really does remain the same. It’s true that attempts to evaluate complex programs face many potential pitfalls, but it is important that proper protocols and formulas are constructed and adhered to. Taxpayers deserve to know their dollars are being spent effectively in areas where they serve the most need. Farmers deserve no less. One cautionary note: safeguards must be built into accountability tests to ensure that evaluations properly assess longterm needs. Programs that might seem to be operating ineffectively at the time they are reviewed might actually be delivering needed goods over the longer term and providing increased stability to the industry. Regional spending needs and differences could also be easily adjusted for. An overly simplistic, one-size-fits-all evaluation is not going to work. But if properly done, evaluating spending for need and effectiveness could pay off for taxpayers, governments and farmers. It could point the way to greater efficiency gains and service improvements. How often have we heard farmers complain of slow program payments? Are there opportunities to shift money around within the department, perhaps? Proper evaluations could potentially divert funds more quickly to areas of need and unearth new areas where needs have been left unaddressed. Such program performance audits based on efficiencies and effectiveness seem a no brainer. We trust that during the next five-year cycle, Agriculture Canada will find a way to reach its own performance targets and that effectiveness tests become routine for all spending.

It really changed the cattle industry in Canada, that BSE did. Life changed forever there, for all cattle producers.

Everything that was on the farm was gone, as far as livestock. It was a tough thing to see go.







Anti-science Conservatives? It sure looks that way judging by research funding NATIONAL VIEW


OFA vice-president says cuts to Ag Canada put innovation on ‘shaky ground’


hat is going on with this C o n s e r v at i v e g ov e r n ment’s seeming disregard for investment in scientific research that has the goal of developing knowledge and not products?

It spends money on specific projects — say agricultural research clusters or last week’s industry praised investment in a five-year wheat research project — but increasingly little on so called “knowledge science” or “what-if ” science that creates the basis for the inventions of the future. It is all about the short-term, the foreseeable bottom line. Several weeks ago, science and technology minister Gary Goodyear announced a new business-friendly model for the National Research Council. The focus will be on “industrial research, new growth and business development,” he said. “If Canada is going to compete internationally, we must do it through new ideas, new products and opening new markets,” the lead cabinet science minister said in

Ottawa. “The NRC will now focus on the identified research needs of Canadian business. It will be customer pull.” Bring in the entrepreneurs who want some taxpayer support to develop products they can then sell for a profit. Last year, the Natural Science and Research Council of Canada dropped agriculture as one of its core funding priorities. In April, Canada pulled out of a United Nations research project on dealing with drought, complaining the $300,000 spent each year was not going to practical results-oriented research but meandering bureaucracy. Several weeks ago in a raft of notices to Agriculture Canada employees whose jobs could be terminated in

the interests of “efficiency” and budget cutting, researchers and support staff were particularly targeted. The government attitude seems to be that if research can’t turn around a product or an improved product that can be commercialized within a few years, tough luck. Given the fact that the prairie canola and pulse industries are now multi-billion dollar sectors because of years of research that often seemed to be headed nowhere, this is shortsighted thinking. In many ways Canada’s agriculture now is thriving on the backs of scientific breakthroughs made decades ago. Where are the breakthroughs now that aren’t about to be patented by a company that may have public support but will reap the benefits?

Farm leaders, researchers and international observers have raised troubling questions about the government’s attitude to long-term basic science. “If government doesn’t do it, who will do it?” Roger Beachy of the Saskatoon-based Global Institute for Food Security recently asked. Ontario Federation of Agriculture v i c e -p re s i d e n t D e b r a P re t t y Straathof said last week the Agriculture Canada cuts “signal shaky ground for Canadian research innovations.” It seems like an obvious point, but maybe not among the powers that be. They won’t be around when Canada is importing basic research results in future decades from countries still investing now.






Needs of poor people must come first

Man. farmers deserve gov’t support



he recent decision to merge the Canadian International Development Agency into the new Department of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Development isn’t the first time Canada’s aid program has been profoundly changed. Another major change occurred five years ago in April when the government fully untied Canadian food aid. Then, as now, it was a matter of balancing competing interests. Then, it was balancing the needs of people who are hungry in the developing world with the fortunes of Canadian farmers and other commercial interests. Today, the question is balancing Canadian prosperity and security with the needs of the world’s poorest, most vulnerable citizens. The story goes back to the 1950s, when Canada started its food aid program and was struggling with an agricultural surplus. At the same time, people in countries in Africa and Asia were facing hunger due to drought. Food aid was seen as a way to help, as well as deal with the surplus. It did benefit many in the developing world, but it was also self-interest in disguise — a way to help Canadian farmers sell their surplus crops and stabilize prices. A stronger focus on helping others was developed when CIDA was established in1968. In 1975 it developed a food aid strategy that allowed non-governmental organizations to use government funds to buy up to 20 percent of food aid from local farmers in

Buying food aid from local farmers is preferable to shipping food from donor countries, says the author. | FILE PHOTO developing countries. However, by 1980 pressure from Canadian farm organizations and others caused the “untying” of aid to be scaled back to allow only five percent of food to be bought locally, and then only in emergencies. This was not the best, or most efficient, way to help people who were hungry. Food had to be shipped to the developing world because only food from Canada could be bought with government funds. This was not only costly but also took a lot of time, often at least two to three months. To improve the situation, Canadian food aid policy was relaxed a little.

NGOs such as the Canadian Foodgrains Bank were permitted to buy up to 10 percent of food aid locally, starting in the early 1990s, but it still didn’t resolve the challenges. In the late 1990s, the foodgrains bank and other aid groups decided to ask the government to fully untie food aid, arguing that it was a more efficient use of government funds, allowed aid to get to hungry people more quickly, and didn’t harm local farmers. The response of the Canadian government was mixed. CIDA supported the request, but Agriculture Canada was opposed. Politicians were cautious, fearing a negative response

from rural voters. It took the tragedy of the 2004 Southeast Asian tsunami to change p e o p l e’s m i n d s. Wi t h i n t h re e months, Canadian food aid policy was changed to allow aid groups to use Canadian funds to buy 50 percent of food aid in the developing world. In April 2008, the government changed food aid policy again, fully untying Canadian food aid. So what caused these changes? One thing was the clear fact that buying locally was a better use of Canadian taxpayer money. Another was the effect in the developing world: helping support local farmers made good development sense. Looking back on this fifth anniversary of the full untying of food aid, we celebrate this change. At the same time, we realize that balancing the needs of poor people in the developing world and Canada’s economic interests is an ongoing conversation. Today, with the merger of Canada’s aid, trade and diplomatic portfolios into the new Department of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Development, there is a new discussion about the role Canadian aid can play in benefitting Canada. While aid can be beneficial for Canada, it is the hope of the foodgrains bank that the needs of the poorest people on the planet will be highest priority, even if we don’t get anything in return.   Stuart Clark is a special adviser at Canadian Foodgrains Bank, a partnership of 15 churches and church agencies working together to end hunger.

Are you feeling your age this spring? HURSH ON AG



e’re getting old, you k n ow ,” re m i n d s my long-time friend who is helping with seeding. The comment usually comes at the end of a long day or during a task that’s particularly taxing. “Naw, we aren’t old yet,” I say in response. “In 10 or 15 years, we may start to be getting old, but right now, we’re just seasoned.” In truth, age catches up with us all, but there are some who use it as an excuse to avoid learning and adapting. Even if you keep active and rela-

tively fit, there are physical challenges as the age meter keeps ticking. Now in my middle 50s, I don’t jump down from machinery the way I once did. I don’t need another knee injury. And that rock out in the middle of the field can wait for the front end loader. I don’t want a bunch of visits to a chiropractor like the last time I wrestled a big stone. Getting it into the back of the truck did give me a lot of satisfaction, but it was soon clear that the rock had the last laugh. Working at heights doesn’t impress me as much as it used to, either. If one of the sons is around, better to send him up the ladder to deal with the bin lid problem. While I can still use a shovel in a grain bin as well as my boys, I’m moving to more hopper bottoms. There’s also the sight thing that most of us have to deal with. In my case, its glasses off for working up close. Invariably, there’s an episode of

hide and seek to figure out where the glasses are parked following some equipment repair job. Many aspects of grain farming require far less physical labour than in previous decades, so it’s easier for farmers in their late 60s, 70s or even early 80s to remain productive. When a job is physically demanding, get someone else to do it : a family member, employee or contractor. While there are fewer farming activities requiring muscles and agility, top agricultural performance requires that you keep up mentally. If you think you’re too old to learn and adapt, you’re going to quickly be at a disadvantage. Older farmers are less likely to use a smartphone, less likely to use the internet for research and less likely to use social media such as Twitter, but many older people have adopted these tools. If you want a cellphone that’s just a phone, your age is showing. When it comes to learning and

adopting new technology, age is an attitude. Our physical abilities will diminish with time, but if you keep an open mind and keep working on it, you can retain the mental capacity to use the new technologies that suit your needs. It also helps that technology is becoming more user-friendly. There are 80-year-olds who still seed and combine because they aren’t intimidated by the new-fangled monitors and auto steer. The biggest challenge for some of the very senior combine and tractor operators is just getting up and down the stairs. Once they’re in the cab, they do just fine. Not everybody wants to farm into their 70s, but some of us do. If you want to be useful and relevant on the farm into your advancing years, work to keep the mind as youthful as the body.

hen you count all the issues facing Manitoba farmers, you would never know they are part of an industry that contributes, directly and indirectly, 11 to 12 percent of GDP to their province. Manitoba is under significant economic pressure at present, but its government must try to more adequately support the very people who provide considerable economic heft. Part of the problem in Manitoba’s economy, of course, remains the devastating flood of 2011. Farmers are still struggling to get back on track after the government purposely opened a flood diversion at Hoop and Holler Bend near Portage la Prairie and put both crop and range land under water. Many farmers still have not been fully compensated for the many costs associated with flooding. Angry farmers recently protested opening the diversion a second time a few weeks ago. The obstruction was brief, but the government publicly denounced the action and launched legal action against two of the protesting farmers before retracting. Manitoba has not been entirely friendly to hog farmers either, even as they struggle with high feed prices and low returns. They have been restricted from growing their operations and lambasted for contributing to the pollution of Lake Winnipeg, even though theirs is a small contribution. Then, in April, the Manitoba Pork Council was told that the government would not support its plan for a stabilization program, which would provide hog farmers with up to $75 million in loans from a governmentbacked 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. Meanwhile, producers are becoming increasingly frustrated with oil companies, and are demanding some oversight from the province on leaks and spills. Expediting a system of protection for landowners is the least the government could do. The Manitoba government must begin to see that if farmers are not doing well, neither is the province — and that includes Winnipeg, where part of the urban economy is reliant on rural activity. Granted, the weather has not been kind to Manitoba. Granted, most of the votes come out of the big city. But the government must speed up protection for farmers on several fronts, and treat them like the economic drivers they are.

EU BEATS CANADA To the Editor: Oh, to be in Europe, now that they have put us to shame, once again. Member states of the European Union have just voted to ban that “devil family” of bee-killing pesticides known as neonicotinoids. It is now illegal to apply the stuff anywhere over that entire continent. While Europe has finally seen the light, oceans of it continue to be applied with abandon on food crops in North America. The seeds of crops such as corn and canola are now shot full of it before they even go into the ground. I guess authorities here and chemical giants, which make these poisons, don’t want us to know certain things. For example, when Italy acted on its own a few years ago and banned it, pollinator populations bounced back the following season, with little or no effect on crop production. A year ago, during corn planting season in Ontario and Quebec, there were well over 200 separate complaints from beekeepers of honeybee kills. Regulators have responded by promising to “review” the complaints and possibly “tighten up” the warning labels on the products. Scary. In the United States last year, commercial beekeepers report they lost up to one half of their hives. Authorities described honeybee losses in Canada during the winter of 2010-11 as drastic and extreme. The following winter, for some reason, they were much better. Still, given the wild west mentality that prevails in this country, and the resurgence of corn, treated with youknow-what, as a livestock feed on the Prairies as well as Central Canada, it’s hard to imagine how that state of affairs can last.

OBESITY BEFUDDLES SCIENCE To the Editor: In over 80 years of living, with half of that involved in animal agriculture, teaching, extension and research into human nutrition, I have never read so much misguided and misguiding balderdash as that in the Farm Living section, “Tackling the obesity question” (WP April 18) The address by Dr. Robert Dent to the Conference Board of Canada

food strategy conference on April 9, epitomized everything that has gone wrong with “science” and “scientists” in the last 50 years. His incredible statement that “obesity is not rocket science, it is a lot harder,” leads me to believe that science has been seriously crippled. To suggest that in the last 20 years, people have developed a genetic predisposition to become obese defies all the laws of genetics. Human generational intervals are about 25 years, so the “recently appearing” genetic cause of obesity is impossible. A statistician could have done a better job of increasing the awareness of the rising incidence of obesity to the conference, by simply

tracking in graph form the coincidental rise in obesity since WWII, with the increased consumption of sugar, pop, fructose, white flour products, boxed breakfast cereals and all the other refined carbohydrate products that comprise over 60 percent of the space in modern supermarkets. The confusion that folks have developed listening to musings and pontifications that MDs and PhDs offer about human health has created a society that is collectively crippled in its ability to find logical answers to health concerns…. I am convinced that if concerned people could return to the dinner table of my childhood in the 1930s, on which my mother would have

placed garden vegetables, slightly crisp, and topped with homemade butter from our family cow, along with a slice or two of grass fed beef, they would have waxed eloquent. The side dishes would impress them even more: tea with cream from the daily milking, or a glass of whole raw milk, and a slab of apple pie made with apples from a tree in the back yard… Maybe it’s time we put “science” aside and used our common sense, choosing food that is whole, and teaching our children that indulgence with sugar and refined foods is poisonous. For the adults who are obese and at the mercy of doctors, pharmacists and health scientists, I can only say

I’m sorry that society has betrayed you. Trevor Jones, Fairview, Alta.

ALL-OUT ATTACK To the Editor: Re: Biotechnology opposition off base by Lorne Hepworth (WP, May 02) I found the May 2 propaganda article “Biotechnology opposition off base” to be somewhat economical with the facts. Clearly, the purveyors of GM crops are feeling the heat from farmers and Canadians rising up in opposition to

OPINION the registration of Roundup Ready alfalfa. This is rightly being viewed as an all-out attack against organic and other conventional farming systems. In terms of the so called many benefits the author speaks of, GE crops can lay claim to really only two traits : the herbicide tolerant gene, as in Roundup Ready, and the B.t. pesticide gene (Bacillus thuringiensis), which renders the entire plant a pesticide factory. All the inherent qualities of a seed that contribute to yield and nutritional enhancements are still being achieved by conventional breeding methods, which can in no way be credited to genetic engineering. Factor in the emergence of resistant super weeds that is forcing farmers to use more herbicides, including older toxic ones like dicamba and 2,4-D, and anyone can see the full scope of the GM scam.

The author’s assertion that coexistence of GM crops is possible also rings hollow. We only have to consider the example that has been set by GM canola in Canada to see the future inevitability of contamination of all alfalfa seed stock if Roundup Ready varieties are let loose. Drawing on the expertise of 400 scientists from 60 countries, the International Assessment of Agricultural Science and Technology for Development (IAASTD) concluded that genetically modified crops will not address the challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss, hunger or poverty. It urged the world’s governments to redirect funding and efforts away from the destructive chemical dependent one-size-fits-all model of agriculture and towards a system which embraces small-scale farmers and agro-ecological methods. I won-


der if the author would regard the IAASTD as a special interest group as well. Alex Atamanenko, MP, B.C. Southern Interior, Castlegar, B.C.

NO TO GM ALFALFA To the Editor: Many of you have seen my name under letters to the editor here in The Western Producer and sometimes even in articles. If you wondered what I look like, that’s me at the center of the picture in Lorne Hepworth’s op-ed piece in the May 2 edition. Contrary to the assertions of agrochemical corporations like the one that pays Mr. Hepworth’s comfy salary, the core message of the GM

alfalfa protests was not that all innovative ag technology is bad. I grow GM canola on my farm and many of the Ontario protesters grow GM soybeans, which shows that many of us definitely embrace biotech innovations we think will be profitable. Most articles about the protests faithfully reported economic concerns as our main focus. Corporate control of farming decisions by patent, by contract, and by the de-regist rat i o n o f a n y a l t e r nat i v e w a s another. Most of Mr. Hepworth’s piece was platitude and misdirection. The only paragraph which actually addressed our concern of gene transfer ending the entire organic alfalfa industry (and negatively affecting organic honey, beef, milk, etc.) was downright laughable. It is impossible, not just improbable, to stop the field release of GM alfalfa pollen by cut-


ting before flowering. You will always miss a few plants on the corners or at the fence line, or scoop up a gopher mound and push over plants instead of cutting them, or some plants will just flower before you are ready. Biotech isn’t inherently evil, but some efforts will clearly do more harm than good. Triffid flax, anyone? Glenn Tait, Meota, Sask.

Farmers say wind energy revenue backfires Declining property values, noise | Some Ontario farmers claim the turbines have caused property values to drop 40 percent STORIES BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

GUELPH, Ont. — Unlike on the Prairies where wind turbines dot the southern rural landscape with little political resistance, they have become a divisive issue in Ontario. Many farmers have bought into the potential for a new revenue stream from turbines built on their land over the past decade, but many of their rural neighbours complain about noise, declining property values and health issues.

The issue was considered key in a handful of rural seats lost by the provincial Liberals in the 2011 election, which cost the government its majority. Both the sitting and former agriculture ministers lost their seats, with wind turbines as a key issue. “It has been a very, very divisive debate,” University of Guelph researcher Richard Vyn told a conference on rural land use May 14. “Activists are calling for a moratorium.” However, he said many of the complaints about the negative impacts of


wind turbines are unproven and in some cases questionable. One of the major complaints is turbines reduce nearby property values because potential buyers shy away from the area.

Vyn, assistant professor in the university’s food, agriculture and resource economics department, said some critics have alleged that area property values have dropped by 40 percent when a wind turbine is built. However, he said a study in areas where wind farms have developed did not find a decline in values. “This could be case specific and there could be some properties affected, but based on my study, I did not see any negative impact on property values,” he told the conference.

In a later interview, he said there has also been little academic verification of allegations of health concerns caused by wind turbines. “There’s lots of anecdotal evidence but little rigorous study of the issue,” he said. Vyn also said the difference in reaction to wind farms on the Prairies and in Ontario is interesting. It could be a population density issue, but it may also be a political culture. “I wonder if there simply are different population assumptions,” he said. “I wonder if the backlash in Ontario simply feeds on itself and the claims of harm get passed on, whereas in the West, there has not been a backlash and the campaign didn’t really get started.” In Ontario, the Liberal government has promoted the wind energy project as a cleaner, greener energy source. However, there has been little public political support from the environmental movement to support the industry. Vyn said the number of wind turbines has grown from 10 to more than 1,000 in the past 10 years. “This growth will continue.”

GUELPH, Ont. — What has been a red-hot farm real estate market soon will be cooling, say two farmland price trackers. James Bryan, an analyst in Farm Credit Canada’s strategy and agricultural economics section, told a May 14 conference on land use that the national average increase in farm land values last year was 19 percent. In Ontario, it was 30 percent. In Saskatchewan, land value increases were above average, between 14 and 20 percent. “Farmland has outperformed other investments,” he said. Marleen Van Ham, a real estate appraiser at Agri-Choice Real Estate Appraisers in southwestern Ontario, concurred. She told the conference that per acre land prices have varied in the counties she covers from a low of $6,000 in Elgin and Haldimand to a high of $22,000 in Oxford and $20,000 in Perth. “I think we are at a peak and prices could fall back by five or 10 percent,” she said. Bryan said lower crop prices and inevitable interest rate increases will dampen land price inflation. “I don’t think necessarily that farmland prices will go down,” he said in an interview. “However, the rate of increase will slow down at least.” Ham said extraordinary increases in Ontario land prices in the last sevCONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE





Rural land rights a divisive issue GUELPH, Ont. — The growth of the politically potent rural land rights movement in Ontario is a symptom of one of the deepest rural-urban divides in Canada, a researcher says. University of Guelph professor Glenn Fox told a rural land use policy conference May 14 that the growth of the Ontario Landowners’ Association during the past several decades reflects a profound disconnect between policy-makers, urban residents and hundreds of thousands of rural landowners. “There is a very deep cultural divide,” he said. “I don’t know what it will take to repair it, and I think it is a very interesting question why this rural land rights movement seems so Ontariocentric. I’m sure a divide exists in other provinces but it really is more pronounced in Ontario.” Two Progressive Conservative members of the Ontario legislature are former eastern Ontario activists from the landowners’ association, whose signs dot the rural countryside: a stop sign, the slogan “Back off Government” and the warning, “without property rights you have no rights.” “I would say people in this movement do not necessarily oppose the social or environmental goals of government regulations,” said Fox. “They just don’t want rural landowners to bear a disproportionate part of the cost.” It is a familiar tale across Canada, whether it is a farmer lobby to receive compensation for environmental and landscape stewardship services they provide or the battle for compensation for fuel pipelines and power lines that cross properties. However, the battle is more intense and politically charged in Ontario. Fox suggested it is because the province is the most urban in the country and home to millions of urban residents with no rural connections. “They live in their small condos in the city and consider rural areas their playground for the weekend.”


He said the rural resentment began to grow in the 1960s and 1970s when rules were passed to preserve the Niagara Escarpment. They escalated in the 1990s with the creation of greenbelts around cities that arbitrarily limited the rights of landowners without compensation. The proliferation of rural wind tur-

bines has increased the divisions in the past decade. “Although I think the tinderbox was filled in the 1970s, the tipping point came in the 1990s when the number of rules and regulations increased dramatically,” said Fox. “The Ontario farmers I know have a strong land and environmental ethic, but they also have a strong view of the rights of land ownership.” He said most urban residents are oblivious to the divide. “In most cases, I don’t believe they know this is going on.” However, it has significant political implications.

eral years have meant landowners are turning pastureland into cropland, cutting down bush lots and draining wetlands. “I actually don’t think that these are good trends, but it is landowners reacting to what are historic prices,” she said. Still, University of Guelph professor Alfons Weersink told the conference that urban expansion and other factors are reducing the amount of cropland. Only eight percent of cropland is in Ontario and 80 percent is on the Prairies. He said the last agricultural census showed a four percent decline in cropland across the country. “The amount of cropland decreased even in Saskatchewan despite the commodity boom,” said Weersink.

Flood risk wanes in Assiniboine River Valley

Seed inoculants popular this spring

Some farmers in the area have had land flooded for the last three years



Farmland in Manitoba’s Assiniboine River Valley will likely be spared severe flooding this spring because the river is cresting below dike levels between St. Lazare and Brandon. Stan Cochrane, who farms near Griswold, Man., had expected the Assiniboine to crest by his farm on the May long weekend. “We have some (land) that’s diked and the dikes are still holding, so far,” he said. “I think the river has crested in Virden and Miniota. So as long as we don’t get rain, the flows are going down fairly quickly right now.” Record snowfalls in eastern Saskatchewan this winter meant there was a chance that Manitoba would see a repeat of 2011, when flood water covered 40,000 to 50,000 acres of land in the Assiniboine River Valley between the Shellmouth Dam and Brandon. Fortunately, water flow from Saskatchewan into the Shellmouth Reservoir dropped significantly last week. According to daily flood reports posted by the Manitoba government, flows into the reser voir dropped from 10,000 cubic feet per second May 9 to 6,300 cfs May 16. However, a flood warning remained in effect as of May 16 for the river between Miniota and Brandon. Cochrane said the dissipating flood risk means he will likely seed a crop this year. “If we don’t get any rain, we should be able to get quite a bit of it seeded.” Valley farmers lost thousands of acres of crop and pastureland during severe flooding in 2010, 2011 and 2012. For example, Cochrane had 1,500 acres of land under water last year. The Assiniboine Valley Producers Association wants the province to modify its management of the Shellmouth Reservoir to provide longterm flood security for the valley. The association hired Alf Warkentin, who served as Manitoba’s senior flood forecaster for decades before retiring in 2010, to prepare a report on the Shellmouth Reservoir. After evaluating the historical record, Warkentin found that excess water is a problem more frequently than a shortage. Therefore, the reservoir, which is located near Russell, Man., should be managed accordingly. Farmers want the province to build a gate on the reservoir’s spillway to increase its capacity and reduce the risk of spring flooding. The producers association submitted Warkentin’s report to the provincial government in April. The province hasn’t responded, except to say it received the report.

No major shortage | Some popular inoculants are sold out, but other formulations are available LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Seed inoculant is selling fast as seeding gets underway across the Prairies. Some brands and formulations are already unavailable to producers. However, Novozymes and Becker Underwood say inoculum supplies are adequate, even if farmers’ preferred types and formulations are not. Novozymes’ Tag Team, its multiaction line, is sold out at the manufacturer’s level, said Lethbridge sales representative Darren Smith. However, some may still be in retail pipelines, depending on the location. “TagTeam has been very popular this year. We had a lot bigger run on it than we expected,” Smith said. “We don’t want any left over. It’s a one-year product. As a manufacturer, you’re never right. If you don’t make enough, the customers are unhappy, but if you make too much, it all costs a lot of money to get rid of.” David Townsend, brand manager for Becker Underwood, said his company, now in transition after being bought by BASF, is seeing a similar situation. “Right now we’re confident that

A bag of Rhizup inoculant for peas hangs from the end of the truck tailgate while the inoculant dribbles onto the peas and into the drill. | MARY MACARTHUR PHOTO we’ve got enough inoculant for all the crops that are going to be planted,” he said. “It’s being shipped around and with the speed at which planting and seeding is occurring, as usual in any year there are shortages at certain retailers as we’re trying to get it moved.” Seed inoculant, which is used to improve the nitrogen fixation capabilities of pulse crops and forages, is

a living organism specific to crop type and can’t be mass produced too far ahead of the use date. Townsend said companies have to take their best guess at planting intentions each year and then make extra to ensure supplies are available to meet producer needs. The variety of products is large, with different rhizobium needed in inoculants for chickpeas, faba-

beans, dry beans, soybeans, peas, lentils and alfalfa, as well as granular, liquid and self-sticking peat formulations. “In any major crop there’s still some form of formulation available,” said Smith. “It really depends on what crop and what formulation you’re looking for. There’s enough inoculum to get your crop in, it just might not be your preferred type.”


Growers lament lack of inoculants for forages There are plenty of inoculant options for alfalfa, the so-called king of forages, but options have trickled to nothing for lesser-grown forages such as sainfoin and red clover. Members of the Canadian Forage and Grassland Association are trying to find a remedy. “It’s one of those situations where a number of things have come together, and at the moment there just doesn’t seem to be much there in the marketplace,” said CFGA director Jack Kyle. “The inoculants for legumes are basically not available other than alfalfa and sweet clover, which is the same inoculant.” The low acreage planted to forages other than alfalfa and sweet clover is a hurdle for companies that supply inoculant. As well, inoculant is applied only at seeding and forages are not seeded every year, which further reduces market size. Growers might also not see a response to seed-applied inoculant, depending on rhizobia already present in the soil, so they might not use it every time they plant. “There’s been some merger of companies the last few years, and then CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) requires registration and efficacy on these rhizobium, and that requires testing, and the market’s been fairly small and con-

Inoculant manufacturers say there isn’t a strong enough business case to make product for forages other than alfalfa. | FILE PHOTO sequently the companies have chosen not to market it,” Kyle said. David Townsend, brand manager for Becker Underwood, said the company stopped producing inoculum for minor forages a few years ago. “We went through a huge analysis looking at grower and crop expectations and everything else a couple years ago. We made a corporate decision to just sell the alfalfa inoculant,” he said. “I can understand the concerns around the availability, but with our analysis and what we had to do as a company, we made the decision … that all we do is produce for alfalfa.” Darren Smith, the Lethbridge sales representative for Novozymes,

said his company hasn’t made product for minor forages for several years because of the limited market. Inoculant comprises rhizobia that populate the roots of forage plants and increase their ability to produce and fixate nitrogen, thus eliminating the need to fertilize with additional nitrogen. Healthy amounts of nitrogen assist grass plants that are also growing in mixed pasture and provide residual nitrogen that can be used by the next crop in rotation. Legumes grow without additional inoculum, but Kyle said there are advantages to giving them a boost. “It’s a source of nitrogen for the legume plants, and if you don’t have properly inoculated plant roots,

then the legume plant just isn’t as productive as it could be.” Kyle said he understands the business reasons for inoculant manufacturers halting production. However, he worries that legumes such as red clover, which is popular in Ontario and Quebec dairy country, and sainfoin, which has potential in Western Canada, will be less productive as a result. There are also regional issues. “We’ve grown red clover for years and years and years, and there’s a fair bit of rhizobium in the soil,” said Kyle of his farm in southern Ontario. “If you go to Quebec, or parts of Quebec, the soil pH is lower and that native population isn’t there, so it becomes more important for them to have inoculant for red clover.” He hopes that changes the CFIA plans to make to registration regulations will make it easier for companies to register and produce inoculum. Townsend said he isn’t sure that will have a bearing on the matter, partly because new regulations reduce the need for efficacy testing but have greater emphasis on health and food safety assurances. The end result may not reduce time or expense for companies with n e w p ro d u c t s, a l t h o u g h t h a t remains to be seen.





Goatgrass boosts wheat yield

U.S. Supreme Court sides with biotech firm in soybean ruling

Breeders say trials show 30 percent yield increase

Roundup Ready technology | Grower fined for infringing on patent WASHINGTON, D.C. (Reuters) — In a ruling that drew sighs of relief from the biotechnology industry, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that an Indiana farmer violated agribusiness company Monsanto Co.’s patent for a type of soybean. The court agreed unanimously with Monsanto that Vernon Bowman, 75, had performed an end-run around the law when he used the company’s patented soybean seeds without seeking a licence. Justice Elena Kagan wrote on behalf of the court that Monsanto’s patent protections were not, in legal terminology, “exhausted” when Bowman used the seeds without the company’s permission. Kagan wrote that patent exhaustion did not allow a farmer to reproduce patented seeds through planting and harvesting without the patent holder’s permission. If farmers were allowed to do so, “a patent would plummet in value after the first sale of the first items containing the invention,” Kagan wrote. Such a result would lead to “less incentive for innovation than Congress wanted,” she added. For biotech companies in various sectors, not just agriculture, the May 13 ruling was a “reaffirmation” of the principle that patent protections extend to copies made of a patented item, according to Patricia Millett, a Washington lawyer who filed a friend-of-the-court brief on behalf of the Biotechnology Industry Organization. “It’s very important for the innovation economy,” she said. In the ruling, Kagan specifically stated that the decision was limited to the case before the court and not all self-replicating products. She cited computer software as an example. “We recognize that such inventions are becoming ever more prevalent, complex and diverse,” Kagan wrote. The court, she added, did not need to address in the Monsanto case “whether or how the doctrine of patent exhaustion would apply in such circumstances.” Christopher Holman, an intellectual property expert at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law, said what the court had left undecided were instances in which there is “unavoidable or inadvertent” replication. Notwithstanding Kagan’s reference to software, the principles contained in the ruling would apply just as much to Microsoft Corp., which sells products with licences, as it does to Monsanto, he added. As a result of the ruling, Bowman will have to pay Monsanto $84,456 US for infringing on the company’s patent. Bowman’s attorney, Mark Walters, said the ruling “makes infringers out of 95 percent of America’s soybean farmers.” Small farmers may need to “organize and lobby Congress for a clarification of the law,” he added. David Snively, Monsanto’s executive vice-president, said in a statement that the court had ensured that


“longstanding principles of patent law apply to breakthrough 21st century technologies.” The case arose when Bowman sought in 1999 to save money by buying commodity grain from a grain elevator. The seed was not identified as a type containing Monsanto’s Roundup Ready technology. Bowman said the patent did not cover the grain he used as seed

because it was “second-generation,” not the first-generation sold by seed dealers. Bowman kept the seed generated from the successful crop and used it the following year. He repeated the pattern until 2007. Monsanto objected, saying Bowman was growing soybeans that were resistant to Roundup herbicide, meaning he was infringing on its patents.


LONDON, U.K. (Reuters) — Plant scientists in Britain said last week that cross breeding wheat with a type of wild goatgrass could end years of stagnation in yields with early results showing growth of up to 30 percent. The National Institute of Agricultural Botany said in a statement that the additional genetic diversity the program introduced would offer new sources of yield improvement, drought tolerance and disease resistance. “Over the years, domestication of the wheat plant has increased yields, but recently those increases have slowed, leading to concerns for future food security,” NIAB chief TOP MARKS ACROSS THE BOARD.



executive Tina Barsby said. “This is partly because domestication has eroded wheat diversity and the possibilities for improvement from within the current wheat germplasm pool are reaching their limit.” Modern wheat varieties can be traced back to an original crossbreeding between an ancient wheat and wild grass species that happened in the Middle East about 10,000 years ago. “Yield increases of up to 30 percent have been produced in early field trials, despite the past few years being cold, wet seasons where lack of sunlight depressed yield,” plant breeder Phil Howell said.

Improve foreign farm workers’ lives: network Rights of Canadians | Migrant Workers Solidarity Network wants workers to earn competitive wages and have health coverage BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Migrant farm workers are being exploited by a system that makes them scared to complain, says an organization campaigning for changes. The Migrant Worker Solidarity Network wants foreign workers in Manitoba to have provincial health-care coverage and be able to immigrate permanently to Canada with their families. “ We a re n o t s u g g e s t i n g f o r a moment that these men shouldn’t come to Canada, but what we’re advocating for is for them to immigrate here, to bring their families here and to be offered the same rights as other Canadians have when they are here,” said Lynne Fernandez, a mem-

Is this the goal, or is the goal to have a world where workers are protected and everybody has enough money to live a decent life and you’re building your economy that way. LYNNE FERNANDEZ MIGRANT WORKER SOLIDARITY NETWORK

ber of the network and a professor of labour issues at the University of Manitoba. The network and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives released a report May 15 that called for

improvements to foreign farm workers’ lives. Fernandez said the workers, mainly Mexicans, are vulnerable because of the way the program that allows them to come to Canada is set up. The workers apply in Mexico and are approved if they can be matched to employers. However, Fernandez said the approval is for only a few months and workers must re-apply if they want to come back for another season. She said the application tends to be approved only if the worker has been recommended by the employer, which makes them scared to complain about workplace abuses. As well, workers are officially covered by employment standards regulations and worker’s compensation, but Fernandez said they generally

don’t know how to access the programs and employers often don’t want them to use them. The workers aren’t covered by provincial health care, she added, and aren’t allowed to collect from federal employment insurance, even though they make contributions to the program. Fernandez said many come back year after year, sometimes for more than a decade, but are never allowed to immigrate to Canada or bring their families with them. Instead ,they live in a permanent cycle of temporary foreign employment to support their families in Mexico. She acknowledged that Canadian farms and industries are often at a disadvantage to their American competitors because U.S. minimum wages are lower.

As well, some farm industries in the United States hire illegal aliens, which allows them to further lower their costs. Canadian employers argue that additional costs for hiring foreign workers would weaken their ability to operate in Canada. However, Fernandez said Canadians need to ensure they aren’t building a society that intensifies the pressure to push down all workers’ wages and make all Canadians weaker and poorer. “We keep lowering the bar and lowering the bar so people can have access to cheap stuff,” she said. “Is this the goal, or is the goal to have a world where workers are protected and everybody has enough money to live a decent life and you’re building your economy that way.”

Brad Andres wants producers to make sure they know what to do if a fire comes close to their farm or acreage. Andres, who is emergency program manager with Alberta Agriculture, said one of the biggest lessons learned from the Slave Lake fire, which burned one-third of the houses in the northern Alberta town in 2011, was that there is little time to react and respond once a fire begins. “There has always been issues with fires, but in recent years fires seem to be getting larger and coming upon us faster,” said Andres, who wants to help farmers and acreage owners become aware of their fire risk. He said people believe they would have time to pack up valuables and load livestock if a fire were near. However, all the big fires of recent years seemed to have a large wind

that quickly pushed the fire forward. “With climate change, it seems like winds are stronger and the fire starts and runs really quick.” Humans cause half the wildfires in Alberta, while the other half are caused by lightning and can travel at an astonishing speed. Crowning wildfires can spread at seven km-h and can send embers as far as two kilometres ahead of the fire. Windblown prairie fires can travel more than 10 km-h. Andres said the key to fire safety in rural areas is to know the risk. Farmers in southern Alberta and grassland areas should mow the grass around their buildings or have a firebreak to slow the fire. Farms in treed areas need to clear much of the dead underbrush to slow the fire. Farmers have three options in case of a fire: • Shelter in place: soak down an area and create a firebreak around the yard and animals. • Plan to evacuate: If there is suffi-

cient time, take family and animals to a safe place. • Release the animals: Loading all the livestock may not be possible if producers receive little or no warning or if they have a large number of animals. One option is to open all the gates and doors to give the animals a chance to find safety on their own. “Farmers need to know where their animals are,” said Andres. Pork and chicken producers don’t have the option of loading up all their animals in case of a fire. Instead, farmers need to create fire barriers around barns using gravel or mowed grass. “The best management practices around biosecurity also create barriers for fire,” he said. “Good yard maintenance takes a lot of the risk away.” Andres also suggests following guidelines in Alberta Sustainable Resource Development’s Fire Smart manual.

An ounce of prevention lowers risk Food safety regimes | Producers need to have processes in place to meet buyer demands STORIES BY KAREN MORRISON SASKATOON NEWSROOM

TORONTO — Adopting only minimal food safety regimes is a recipe for failure for fledgling food companies, says a food consultant. Paul Medeiros of the Guelph Food Technology Centre said some producers are looking to do just enough to meet the requirements and audits that many buyers demand. “You’re setting yourself up for failure. You’ve got the wrong attitude right at the beginning,� Medeiros said in an interview at the recent SIAL food trade show in Toronto. “You can roll the dice and get away with it, but eventually it will catch up to you.� Small-scale food entrepreneurs often say they don’t have resources and money to invest, but Medeiros said it doesn’t have to be expensive. “It’s just a matter of understanding and learning basic concepts,� he said. “Fix the problem, fix the process.� Medeiros said most mistakes come back to who’s in charge. “Without management skills, food safety skills fall apart,� he said. He advised taking the time to understand what went wrong, receive input from workers and customers, conduct audits and observe the food production area. He said retailers are looking for root cause analysis, problem solving, validation and leadership in their suppliers. Medeiros cited the 1-10-100 rule, which explains how failure to attend to one problem escalates the loss in dollars. “For every dollar spent on prevention, you will save $10 in internal failure costs, such as reworking or scrapping, and save $100 in external costs, such as warranty and recalls. And if you kill somebody, $100 is a drop in the bucket,� he said. Medeiros said continuing to make mistakes is not good business. It takes away from focusing on consumers’ demands and staying on top of trends and competitors. “It just makes good sense to invest in it,� he said of good management

The food industry is increasingly asking for food safety systems to be in place. | practices and processes. Jennifer Evancio, senior director with the Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership, said there is help for producers to set up food safety systems. In Saskatchewan, the Food Centre can help set up systems such as hazard analysis critical control points, while Saskatchewan Agriculture offers a food safety systems program

for meat processors to help offset the costs of doing so, she said. “It’s an investment that’s more than worthwhile in the longer term,� she said. The need for it increases as a business goes from local to larger marketplaces, she added. “It’s not that people doubt the safety of their food from smaller processors,� she said.


“If there are any issues that come forward, they can go back and see where the issues originated.� The food industry is increasingly asking for these systems to be in place, she added. “It doesn’t just reflect on food processors but impacts retailers as well,� she said. “Nobody wants to deal with food safety issues if they don’t have to.�

The 2013 LMAC Convention & Auctioneer Championships Calgary, AB June 6 - 9, 2013

TORONTO — Increased social responsibility among consumers is driving the food industry to adopt more sustainable practices. “We need to be conscious and now look at where we’re buying from, how we’re feeding people and developing programs to meet the needs,� said Chris Fry, vice-president of supply management with Sodexo. “It’s about meeting the needs today without compromising future generations,� he told delegates at the recent SIAL food show in Toronto. Fry said food demand is expected to rise by 70 percent by 2050 as the global population swells, with the greatest growth expected in India and Africa. He said one in eight jobs in Canada is in agrifood and agriculture, which accounts for nine percent of Canada’s gross domestic product. Canada accounts for 5.5 percent of global food exports. He said top food trends include locally grown, fair trade and certified products, waste reduction, sustainable packaging and sourcing food sustainably. Companies need to work on what they can do at the front end to reduce waste at the consumer end, he said. “Consumers are really looking for not only what’s in the product but what people do around packaging the product,� said Fry. That extends to restaurants, where fresh and local food are big trends. Locals Restaurant in Courtenay, B.C., displays photos of its suppliers on its walls and website, focusing its menu on local terroir of the Comox Valley and broader Vancouver Island. “It seems so absurd to serve bottled Italian water in Canada,� said Toronto executive chef David Chrystian. He said serving appropriate portion sizes is another way to reduce waste. “You don’t need to eat 12 ounce steaks but instead five to six oz. steaks with fresh vegetables and garnishes.� Tim Gilks, president of Ojai Future Trading, said chefs can address “value in food� by choosing artisanal, fair trade, ethically sourced and sustainably produced goods. “Consumers have access to more knowledge than ever before and are using it,� he said.

Man. farmer enters competitive health food market Building a business | Entrepreneurs advised to combine healthy traits in products BY KAREN MORRISON SASKATOON NEWSROOM

TORONTO — When triathlete Colleen Dyck decided to make an energy bar, she found ingredients close to home on her Manitoba farm. “What I saw on the market was a lot of corn syrup and a lot of cheap fortified bars, so I decided to make my own,” said the Niverville entrepreneur, grain and oilseed farmer and mother of four. Dyck showcased Gorp, short for good old raisins and peanuts, at the recent SIAL food trade show in Toronto. T h ro u g h t r i a l a n d e r ro r, s h e tweaked her recipe to create a bar high in protein and free of preservatives that can be eaten after workouts. She then took her recipes to the Food Development Centre in Portage la Prairie, Man., to do shelf life testing. Dyck incorporated ingredients from the farm she operates with her husband, Grant, including hemp, honey and oats. She added nuts and seeds, oats for heart health and energy, flax and hemp for omega 3 and fibre for w e i g ht c o nt ro l a n d i n t e s t i n a l health. “There’s a lot of health claims you can make by putting in the minimum ingredients, and I tried to put in as much of the flax and hemp to get a full omega 3,” she said. “There’s no fake sugar, no preservatives, no fake anything.”

Dyck said her motivation came from a passion for food and adventure and a belief that people need to connect with nature and enjoy the outdoors. “I think it’s a mental health issue. I think a lot of people aren’t getting what they need out of life and it’s causing depression,” she said. Creating food has taken a bite out of her time for day-to-day chores on the 14,000 acre farm, but she remains active in decision-making and planning. It was her strong Christian faith and the encouragement of others that kept her going through the seven-year process and expense of getting a new product to market this past year. “It took a long time and it was expensive. I was always saving up for the next test,” she said. “I get a boost that people are putting value on what you’re putting out there.” The Dycks built a new home after their farm home was destroyed by fire, creating family quarters upstairs and outfitting the main floor with a

commercial kitchen where she employs local women to make the bars each week. The three flavours of Gorp sell for $3-$4 in small grocery stores, spas, health food stores and alternative health clinics in Manitoba and through a website, www.gorpworld. com. Kathy Sawchuk, business development specialist with Manitoba Agriculture, said it’s important for food entrepreneurs with specialty products to research who will buy the product and where they shop. “You have to target the people who can afford it and have a demand for it,” she said. “Go to the market and see what gaps exist, evaluate who are the competitors and what makes them differ-

ent. You have to look at the bigger picture and how you’re going to get there.” Sawchuk said farmers markets are a good starting point because products can be made in smaller batches and feedback from consumers is immediate. The current market is ripe for health and wellness products, which

she advised should offer more than one health benefit. “If one ever goes out (of favour), the other will always be there,” she said. This trend bodes well for those targeting an aging population, who have more disposable income and seek healthy food options. She said resources are available in Manitoba for those getting started, including free services offered by the Canada Manitoba Service Centre for market research and a library of market information at the Food Development Centre. As well, Manitoba Agriculture’s Growing Opportunities offices offer business development specialists who can help with start-up, commercialization and attendance at trade shows.



Prevent falls by maintaining health, keeping active

Initiative gives seeds to students

Seniors’ health | While falls are common among seniors, many incidents can be avoided, says expert STORIES BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Falls are the leading cause of admissions to hospitals for seniors in Alberta, an injury expert recently told Alberta Women’s Institute members, most of them seniors. Injuries from falls comprise 78 percent of seniors admitted to hospital, compared to only four percent from motor vehicle collisions, said Sharon Schooler with the University of Alberta’s Alberta Centre for Injury Control and Research. “One in three seniors will fall at least once a year. If you fall once, you are twice as likely to fall again,” Schooler told the AWI convention in Camrose. However, Schooler said falls are not a normal part of aging, and many can be prevented. She said seniors often brush off the falls as a “silly thing,” but they should

tell their doctor or a family member when they happen. Seniors often lose confidence once they fall and are afraid it will happen again. They stop going out and their life begins a downward spiral. Falls are caused by improper footwear, low blood pressure, depression, vision problems, medication, nutrition, dizziness and a lack of activity. Schooler said seniors can control risk factors with the following measures: • Have medication reassessed annually by a doctor or pharmacist, including over the counter and herbal remedies. • Exercise to keep the body stronger. • Throw away loose throw rugs that can be tripping hazards. • Talk to a doctor or family member about dizziness. • Use only one pharmacist and never

use someone else’s medication. • Watch your step. Beware of hazards such as rough sidewalks or ice and wear appropriate footwear. • Install grab bars in the bath, shower and toilet. • Get up slowly if you are dizzy. She also said keeping active by doing 30 minutes of exercise a day is key to keeping strong “Just keep your body moving.” Karen Sack of the Drayton Valley WI recommended seniors embrace technology and always carry a cellphone in case they fall. “It allows you to regain your selfconfidence if you do have a fall,” she said. Marg Velichko of Kneehill Valley WI recommended women discard their high heeled shoes and wear sensible footwear. “It becomes a necessity and is common sense,” she said.

The Alberta Women’s Institute will provide pumpkin seeds to 10,000 Grade 1 to 3 students to address the growing disconnect between food and where it comes from. Faye Mayberry, AWI’s co-ordinator of the Food and Farmers What’s the Connection project, said most kids are four or five generations away from the farm. “They have no idea where their food comes from,” she said. Through the program, WI members provide schoolchildren with seeds, soil and skills to grow the plants while talking about agriculture and food. WI members will also have a lesson plan they can follow that will help students understand the importance of agriculture. “It looks like it’s a good fit for WI,” said Mayberry. “One of our aims is to get our members back out into the community. This would give them a bit of exposure,” said Mayberry.





Couple credits community service for award Reeve busy during floods | Stan Lainton says his emergency training helped him deal with flooding issues in 2011 BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

BIENFAIT, Sask. — Stan and Paula Lainton anticipate spring for the same reasons most people do — calving, seeding and enjoying warm weather. For the past couple of years, they’ve kept nervous eyes on the snow melt, after a disastrous spring in the Rural Municipality of Coalfields where they farm and Stan Lainton is reeve. The Saskatchewan RM suffered $3 million in damage during the flood of 2011 that also took out half of Roche Percee, which lies within the RM boundaries. At one point, most of the northsouth roads had to be cut to let water flow through. Stan still gets emotional when he talks about the sleepless weeks and the helpless feeling when telling ratepayers to evacuate. He recounts the story of sandbagging around a rural home only to discover even more water was going to be released from Rafferty reservoir and the house didn’t stand a chance. “The phone would start ringing at 6 a.m. and I might see him about 10 at night,” said Paula. “He never got frantic. He just kept going.” The Laintons couldn’t get out of their own yard when 45 centimetres of water flowed over the road. “We had to drive 12 miles around to get to our daughter’s two miles south of here,” Stan recalled. People were angry, but there was work to be done and he wasn’t about to stop. “That’s not in my nature,” he said. Paula figures it’s in his blood. His father was on the RM council from 1956 to 1990 and sat on many of the same boards and organizations that Stan does. That involvement is at least one reason why the Estevan Chamber of Commerce and Estevan Exhibition

Association this winter honoured the Laintons as the 2013 Farm Family of the Year. The nominees come from an area encompassing 13 RMs and the award has been given annually for 48 years. Stan’s father established Rich Prairie Farms in the mid-1940s north of Bienfait. Stan began farming with him after high school, and held several jobs, including one at the nearby coal mine and driving a school bus. That’s how he met Paula. She had grown up in Estevan and was teaching in Lampman. They were married in 1977, had three daughters and two sons and built their own operation in conjunction with Stan’s parents while living in Lampman. Paula became a stay-at-home mom in 1981 but continues to substitute teach today. In 1982, they purchased an old farmyard near the family farm, brought in a trailer and dug a well. Eight years later, when Stan’s father died, they added his farmland to their business and in 1992, the Lainton family moved to the farm. Over the years, they raised pigs and had laying hens, Holsteins and a cream quota. The cream went to Grundeen Creamery and local people bought the eggs. They now have 80 Simmental-Red Angus cross cows and farm about 3,000 acres. The award took them by surprise. “My knees got weak,” said Stan. “I had nothing to say.” Paula said they were shocked because often bigger farmers are recognized, but Stan’s RM work likely was a factor. He credits his emergency management training in dealing with flooding issues. “I’d have been in a major flap without it,” Stan said. Paula is also involved in community associations, including serving as a lay minister and as treasurer for the

She also sometimes works on the baler or combine. Their children, Christine, James, Kendra, Monica and Stephen, are all nearby, and the entire family, which now includes partners and three

granddaughters, gets together the day the cattle are processed before heading to pasture. Stan calls this the annual “reunion at the head gate.” The children maintain a close connection to the farm. “Steven wants to farm,” said Paula.

“Kendra lives on the old farm and Monica and her partner live on his family’s farm.” This involvement bodes well for the farm’s future and also allows Stan and Paula to take winter holidays and get away on motorcycles in summer.


Cause of swollen ankles; treatment for cracked fingers HEALTH CLINIC

Is it just the standing or could it be something more serious? My blood pressure is normal. I am taking hormone replacements for menopausal symptoms.


Hormone replacements or blood pressure medications can cause swollen ankles


I have had swollen ankles and feet for the last few weeks. I have not been walking any more than usual, but I do spend time on my feet at my job and I walk on hard concrete because I work in a big box store. I am 56 years old and female.

You should first check for more obvious causes, such an infection or sores on the feet. They are usually painful. Diabetics have peripheral neuropathy, which blunts sensation in the feet, so an infection could progress rapidly. Diabetics should check their feet regularly. If you have varicose veins they can cause swollen legs and feet. Various medications produce sideeffects of swollen ankles. Estrogen, found in hormone replacement medications or patches, can be one of them. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDS can also do this in addition to some of the older types of

tricyclic anti-depressants. Calcium channel blockers such as Adalat or Cardizem, which are used as blood pressure medications, may also cause swollen ankles. Deep vein thrombosis occurs when there is a clot in the deep veins of the calf. There is usually calf pain associated with this and it generally affects one leg, making that leg a different colour from the other. Tests can determine the venous blood flow and see if there is a blockage. If so, anti-coagulant medications may be required. If your ankles are red and painful as well as swollen, you may be suffering from an acute infectious type of arthritis such as rheumatic fever. Rheumatoid arthritis is another possibility, but it would probably affect other joints as well as the ankles. Heart disease such as right-sided heart failure can cause your ankles to

swell later in the day because you could be retaining salt and water. Gravity causes the excess fluid to build up in your ankles, particularly if you are standing a lot. Liver or kidney disease may also lead to fluids building up in the body.



My fingers get red, cracked and sore at the ends. I am careful to wear gloves outside in cold weather. What causes this? FILE PHOTO


I get asked this question a lot, along with questions about cracked nails. I know I am always going on about washing your hands frequently to prevent colds and flu, but hand washing too frequently is the most common cause of sore, red fingers. Wear latex gloves when washing

dishes or doing housework. Excessive hand washing or dishwashing takes the oil out of your skin so this needs to be replaced with hand creams and moisturizers. Clare Rowson is a retired medical doctor in Belleville, Ont. Contact:





Bird watchers delight in Mindo Cloud Forest TALES FROM THE ROAD


Ecuador’s rare birds and lush countryside are a nature lover’s dream


louds cling to forested hills, cloaking jungle-like growth in a perpetual damp blanket. Moisture nourishes a rich diversity of life from flowering bromeliads on moss-encrusted trees to giant ferns, rare orchids, butterflies galore and a staggering number of birds. The Mindo Cloud Forest is on the slopes of the Andes Mountains in Ecuador, two hours west of Quito, and a stone’s throw from the equator. Only a couple thousand people l i v e i n Mi n d o t ow n , b u t i t ha s become one of the top nature viewing and bird watching spots in South America. We settle into the Yellow House Lodge on a hillside just outside town. The yard is a riot of colour with flowering amaryllis, plumeria, ginger, banana plants and poinsettias the size of small trees. Birds include everything from parrots to toucans, cuckoos, warblers and iridescent flashes of every colour imaginable from constantly buzzing hummingbirds. Ecuador has over 130 species of hummers (Canada has five), and we see several at once each morning at the lodge’s feeders. It’s mesmerizing to watch them jostling for positions at the feeders and darting around so fast that it’s tough to take photos. The lodge is part of a small farm: a few cattle, dairy and a yard full of chickens that make alarm clocks redundant.

Owner Maria Elena Garzon and her daughters use farm produce for our breakfast, including fresh eggs, juice from various fruit trees in the yard, even coffee from locally grown beans. Out our back door, a path leads to a network of walking trails through heavily forested hills where a large section of the farm has been preserved in its natural state. Another highlight is our trip to the Paz farm. Angel Paz is one of eight brothers who lived on a poor subsistence farm where they logged the forest to sell wood and clear land for grazing. When Angel discovered several rare birds on his land, he and his brother, Rodrigo, turned their attention to tourism and conservation. Now Refugio Paz de las Aves (Paz’s bird refuge) is on the must-see list for bird nerds visiting Ecuador. After years of hard work, the brothers found that they could make a better living by preserving the forest rather than cutting it down. Angel picks us up in Mindo at 5 a.m. There’s no sleeping in when birds set the schedule. The 40-minute drive takes us down a rough hilly road with more rocks than gravel. We arrive just as the sun comes up and immediately head along the damp trail to a viewing platform hidden in thick bush. At daybreak most mornings, the fire engine red male Andean Cock of the Rock flies around here to impress

The Yellow House Lodge is set on the slopes of the Andes Mountains near Mindo, Ecuador. |



Nature enthusiasts can catch a glimpse of hummingbirds like the Empress Brilliant, top, Collared Inca, left and Rufous-tailed, right. females. Before long, we see brilliant scarlet flashes streak by as a half dozen birds dart through the branches. When they settle down, we see their strange bulbous heads that look like two dark eyes stuck on a big ball of red fluff. Angel leads us along paths where he calls birds out of the forest. He imitates several birdcalls, but sometimes it’s simply “venga, venga,” Spanish for “come here.”

When calling fails, Angel turns to his secret weapon, a can of worms. Dropping a few juicy crawlies suddenly brings out a Giant Antpitta, an extremely rare and reclusive forest bird almost never seen in the wild. Later, we see more rare species of antpittas, unusual wood quails, and another dazzling array of hummingbirds, some completely different from those in nearby Mindo.

More than just seeing rare birds, it’s a chance to wander through exotic countryside with someone who grew up there, knows every special spot and enthusiastically shares it with visitors. It brings a whole new meaning to the term farm diversification. Arlene and Robin Karpan are well-travelled writers based in Saskatoon. Contact:




Fingerling potato salad, kale salad, green beans and tandoori chicken make a flavourful picnic. Keep perishable food in a separate container from beverages to avoid frequent exposure to warm temperatures. | SARAH GALVIN PHOTOS


Keep food safety in mind when preparing summer picnic several enjoyable hours together.


CROSTINI WITH GOAT CHEESE AND THYME baguette Chevre or goat cheese fresh thyme white truffle oil, optional



icnics are never appreciated more than after the long winter. Forget the sit down dinner and get outside for sunshine and fresh air. Don’t feel you need to make everything from scratch. For example, a grocery store chicken is easy and tasty, but be sure to chill before packing. Safe food handling is critical to protect against food-borne illness. Before setting out your picnic, make sure hands and surfaces are clean. If you don’t have access to running water, use a water jug, some soap and paper towels to wash hands or use moist disposable towelettes. Take care to keep all utensils and platters clean when preparing food. Avoid cross contamination. Never reuse a plate or utensil that previously held raw meat, poultry or seafood unless it is washed in hot, soapy water. Keep cold food below 40 F (5 C) to prevent bacterial growth. A cooler with ice or frozen gel packs is ideal. Meat, poultry and seafood may be packed while still frozen so they stay colder longer. Be sure to keep these securely wrapped to prevent their juices from contaminating prepared food or raw food. Organize cooler contents. Consider packing beverages in one cooler and perishable food in another. That way, as picnickers open and reopen the beverage cooler, the perishable food won’t be exposed to warm temperatures and the contents are kept cold longer. The inspiration for these recipes comes from a picnic with friends at the rugged French Beach outside Victoria. It was a cold and windy day but an open fire warmed us and we spent

Canada’s beef industry has yet to fully recover from the discovery of BSE 10 years ago. In this first instalment of a two part special report, Western Producer reporters Barbara Duckworth and Barb Glen revisit those who first confronted the crisis. The impact on trade was more devastating than expected, but Canadians rallied to buy beef and help beleaguered producers who had lost about 50 percent of their market. BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU


here is before and there is after in the Canadian cattle industry. Time has been neatly divided between the span before the BSE crisis and what came afterward. Everyone in the industry remembers where they were at the seminal moment when they heard that Canada had a home-grown case of the disease. “I was sitting in my John Deere tractor getting ready to kick it into gear and finish seeding,” said cowcalf producer Cam Ostercamp of Cayley, Alta. “That was a holy shit moment for me. In 2003, the world came to an end on May 20th here.” Dr. Stefanie Czub, a Canadian Food Inspection Agency researcher who confirmed the first case, has similar memories. “For me, it was the year where everything happened,” she said. “The very first thought coming to my mind when I sat behind my microscope at midnight on the Ma y l o n g w e e k e n d , m y f i r s t thought was, ‘oh boy, the poor farmer.’ ” Then Czub began a bout of radiation treatments for cancer, for months dividing her time between hospital and the CFIA lab. Cattle producer Doug Price of

Acme, Alta., remembers the price plunge. “It was a year that it looked like we were going to be quite profitable in the feedlots, and then all of a sudden, bang. I remember (cattle prices) going right down to 38 cents (per pound). And a nickel on cows,” he said. Cattle producer Neil Peacock of Sexsmith, Alta., has crystal clear memories of May 20, 2003. “I remember it exactly. Actually, it was my official retirement day from the company I was working for,” he said. “I was leaving that day, and I was going into full retirement. I was just going to show my cows and live off the proceeds of the cattle and take off my shoes and take ’er easy. And that all went away.” The cow that began what is now 10 years of fallout from BSE was owned by Marwin Peaster of Peoria, Alta. The Mississippi-born farmer had bought the eight-yearold cow only a few months before it went down and was shipped to slaughter in January 2003. It was months before the animal’s brain was tested and when BSE was confirmed, an all-out search began for the source and the cause. The trail to the birthplace of the BSE cow led to the McCrea farm at Baldwinton, Sask. Trevor McCrea remembers it well, and unhappily. “I was actually out seeding (when


I heard.) … It wasn’t too much later that my uncle come got me out of the field, said that they suspected the animal had originated on our farm. I guess at that time, there was so much other stuff going on, it was hard to comprehend, with all the media attention and everything else. It was a shock.” The McCreas’ 110 cow-calf pairs, 15 heifers and a dozen yearling bulls were all slaughtered by the CFIA as it traced and attempted to control fallout from the disease. “Everything that was on the farm was gone, as far as livestock. It was a tough thing to see go,” he said. “On the one hand you wanted to fight for them and on the other hand, people were telling us not to fight, that it would just cause a stink.” McCrea continues to farm and has 75 cows. The family was compensated for the lost animals and decided for tax reasons to buy cattle the year after their herd was destroyed.

McCrea said he wasn’t particularly happy about that, given the sorry state of the cattle business at the time, with prices low and borders closed to exports. “But the thing back then that probably irritated me most of all was that they were treating BSE as a contagious disease. There was no sense in getting in a big hurry. It wasn’t going to be spread anywhere. The animals weren’t contagious.” CFIA investigators concluded the infected cow ate feed contaminated with meat and bone meal, the generally accepted source of prion infection. McCrea recalls providing supplement to calves to prevent coccidiosis with no inkling that it would have industry-shaking repercussions. These days, he asks for a list of ingredients when buying new feed or using a new supplier. McCrea said he worried at the time about how the cattle industry would perceive his family and was unprepared for the CFIA and media onslaught. “It’s good now, when they find the odd case, that the farmer’s place that it’s on, that they don’t get hung out to dry and their name gets thrown to the media right away. With us, we had no choice. The media was almost down here before we knew it. The CFIA told them before they told us.”

Canadians supported beef business Consumption rose | Consumers chose Canadian versus imported beef during crisis BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU


n the first dark weeks after BSE was discovered in Alberta, a miracle occurred. Rather than rejecting beef, Canadians rallied in support of the cattle industry, turning out in force for barbecues and community rallies and visiting the grocery meat counter to stock up. Ironically, consumers found imported meat in the stores even as cattle producers were limited to the domestic market. “We became aware of the fact that there was a lot of imported beef on our shelves, and producers would ask at their supermarket, ‘where does this meat come from,’” said Agnes Jackson, who ranches near Kamloops and was president of the British Columbia Cattlemen’s Association. She and others started a letter writing campaign to newspapers to explain what was happening and the need to sell Canadian beef in stores. The association considered developing a branded program, but then Overwaitea Foods approached it with a plan to sell beef from B.C. The Western Family beef brand was created and continues to this day. Stores featured life sized posters of B.C. ranching families to promote beef, and many producers made personal appearances to talk with consumers. “One of the most outstanding things to me, in spite of the horrible consequences it has had on our industry, the Canadian public stood behind our industry. They wanted to help. That is why the Overwaitea program was so successful,” Jackson said.

Almost every store in Picture Butte, Alta., displayed a Proud to Support Alberta Beef poster. The town was hard hit by low cattle prices in the wake of BSE. | FILE PHOTO Studies have shown Canadians trust farmers, which can go a long way in a food crisis, said consumer researcher Ellen Goddard of the University of Alberta. She and her colleagues conducted extensive research on beef consumption patterns, risk perceptions, animal traceability and other consumer assessments related to BSE. People bought more beef in the first few months of the BSE crisis, but some of the motivation may have been related to price. There was plenty of ground meat around

selling at bargain prices. “People will always buy more when it is cheap,” said Goddard. But not every household considered beef safe. Researchers used Nielsen Home Scan Data, in which 10,000 Canadian households collect data on purchases over time, to look at risk perception and purchasing patterns before, during and after BSE. About three to four percent of people rejected beef outright and did not come back. “Other households didn’t change

their beef purchases one iota,” she said. “It was as if BSE never happened to them. Some households reduced it for a little while and then went back.” Heightened consumer awareness continues because BSE animals were found occasionally until two years ago. Media coverage was important at the time. The internet was not used as widely in 2003, but if there was a similar situation today, social media would drive wide and diverse opinions about food safety at incredible speed. Younger people might also react differently today because food safety scares seem to occur more often, Goddard said. “If something like BSE hits in 2023, I don’t think we can predict how people will behave based on past history because by then the population of Canada will be entirely different,” she said. BSE forced more record keeping and improved traceability. Goddard’s research has found people want and expect more traceability. It now goes only as far as the slaughter plant when it should go all the way to the grocery store. “I think we are missing an opportunity here to secure the Canadian consumers’ confidence in the system because they want it,” she said. Producers were anxious about the added cost of measures used to control BSE such as removing and destroying specified risk materials to keep infection out of the food supply. However, she said this information should be given to consumers to assure them proactive steps are taken to protect the food system on a regular basis.

It’s good now, when they find the odd case, that the farmer’s place that it’s on, that they don’t get hung out to dry and their name gets thrown to the media right away. With us, we had no choice. The media was almost down here before we knew it. The CFIA told them before they told us. TREVOR MCCREA

n Boxing Day 2003, the telephone rang in the home of Wayne and Shirley Forsberg on a farm near Calmar, Alta. Wayne took the call. The news was grim. A BSE-infected dairy cow in Washington state had been traced to their farm. That’s when their lives changed. “It really changed the cattle industry in Canada, that BSE did,” said Shirley. “Life changed forever there, for all cattle producers.” The couple had sold their 111head dairy herd in 2001, and eight of the cows went to a U.S. buyer. A sixyear-old animal later tested positive. The Forsbergs had comprehensive records that allowed a quick trace of the animal. Canadian Food Inspection Agency personnel took over their dining room table, checking records and confirming the animal’s identity through its registration papers that were con-

I guess one of these days I’ll have to get rid of them,” said Shirley. Wayne died in January 2012, and she continues to live on the farm. But there are no longer cattle. Forsberg said she and Wayne had seen the media attention paid to Marwin Peaster, who owned the

first Canadian cow found to have BSE. They decided to hold a news conference, assisted by the National Farmers Union, to tell their story and limit the attention. “We thought the only way was to be honest about it. But it’s still surprising, you run into people that remember the BSE and remember the kerfuffle that it caused and recognize us from it,” muses Forsberg. “I’ve always felt that what is, is, and you have to deal with it. Trying to hide it would not have helped the beef industry either. It had to be dealt with.” She said she and Wayne were amused by some of the media coverage at the time. One reporter took photos of an oat bin peppered with grasshoppers. A neighbour had stored his crop in one of their bins because he didn’t want to contaminate his clean oats with the crop full of hoppers. Wayne had lost both hands and both feet to meningitis years before. Forsberg recalls his amusement after the news conference. “Afterwards he said, ‘you know, I think the media was more inter-

ested in me pouring a glass of water with my hook than they were in what else was going on.’ ” Forsberg said she and Wayne tried to keep their sense of humour, although there was nothing amusing about the situation. And the CFIA praised their meticulous records at the time as helping limit fallout from a U.S. case being traced to Canada. “I can’t reflect enough … how this demonstrates, how this assists us in building international respect for our program, when we can get to that level of detail and that level of verification through identification preservation,” head CFIA veterinarian Brian Evans said in early 2004. Forsberg said she felt the CFIA treated them well during the trace out. As for cause, most of the records pointed to a single batch of feed from a central Alberta feed mill. Though the dairy herd was long gone, there was some overlap between it and the Forsbergs’ beef herd, so the animals were slaughtered and tested. None of them had BSE.

No live test | Several herds were slaughtered for trace out but no additional infected animals were found




tan and Dorothy Walterhouse got out of the cow-calf business after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency eliminated about 200 of their cattle during the BSE crisis in 2003. The couple from Tulliby Lake, Alta., had bought cattle from the McCrea farm in Saskatchewan, where the first BSE-infected animal was eventually traced. Now semi-retired and 75 years old, Walterhouse said he kept to grass-fed yearlings until this spring. “This year we got silly and we calved out 50 first-calf heifers,” he said. Like all those affected by the homegrown BSE case, he remembers the day clearly. “They contacted us on (May) 19th at 10 o’clock at night,” he said. “(A veterinarian) said, ‘did you ever have any black cows?’ and I said, ‘I had a pile of cows but not too many black ones.’ He said, ‘one with your brand on got a bad disease.’ ” The next day, CFIA personnel arrived to go through records. The cattle were loaded and shipped to slaughter. None of them tested positive for BSE. “We just took their word. We wanted to get it cleared up as quick as we could on account of the border, but it didn’t turn out that way.” Looking back, Walterhouse said he’d like more proof that his animals had to be sacrificed. He had owned the problematic heifer for only seven months before he sold it again as a bred animal. Walterhouse thinks the cattle industry has not yet fully recovered from the events of 2003. Neither does Wilhelm Vohs of Caroline, Alta., who had the fourth Canadian BSE case in one of his purebred

Charolais cows in 2005. He and his wife, Sheri, reduced their herd after losing some of their animals to the trace-out process. Now they have about 60 head. “I think this fall, they’re going, and I think maybe my wife and I might do a little bit of travelling. But I won’t sell the land.” Vohs said Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, the human equivalent of BSE that can be contracted by eating BSEinfected meat, is a terrible affliction. But in hindsight he thinks the battle against BSE may have been overplayed. Fears of a major CJD outbreak in the United Kingdom after a BSE crisis there did not materialize as more became known about its cause and feed regulations were implemented. “I think BSE was a political issue,” said Vohs. “I think it was mainly an economics issue, getting access to markets again, more so than a human health issue, but again I want to stress I do not want to belittle” those who have died from CJD. Vohs said he now wishes he had thanked consumers for supporting the cattle industry during its toughest time. “The Canadian people treated us beef farmers really, really well.” He also said the CFIA treated him fairly and provided adequate compensation for his purebreds. However, he still wonders at the attention given to BSE and its causes compared to that paid to human illnesses and causes of death. He remembers making the point with one of many television crews that visited his farm. “I said to them two fellows, ‘when you guys (drive) home, bear in mind that your chances of dying are 66,000 times greater than dying from Creutzfeldt disease and I don’t think you boys are going to walk.’ After that, nobody asked

me any more questions.” Today, he worries about the future of the cattle industry in Canada. The domestic herd has shrunk, many producers left the business and there are fewer feedlots. Input costs have risen, wiping out most of the profits from today’s higher cattle prices. He also wonders if scientists have pinpointed the true causes of BSE, given only one infected animal is

ever found in a herd, when theoretically all in the herd that ate the contaminated feed had equal exposure. His own infected cow was injured by another cow, possibly sustaining a back injury and major stress. “Things kind of went downhill with her. She walked for a day or two but then she want down on me. It was one of my best producing Charolais cows.”

Migrant worker injured in crash wishes to stay in Canada Expired work visa | Juan Ariza has been in a long-term care facility since a February collision that killed 10 farm workers BY JEFFREY CARTER FREELANCE WRITER

LOND ON, O nt. — The future remains uncertain for a migrant worker who survived a crash that killed 11 others. Juan Ariza, still recovering from horrific injuries and psychological trauma, said the best chance for him and his family lies with Canada. He would become an object of pity and be unable to find work if he returned to Peru, he added. “I would rather live as a Canadian citizen and live a life of dignity,” Ariza

said, speaking through a translator. There was an outpouring of sympathy for the victims and their families in the wake of the Feb. 6, 2012, accident near Hampstead, Ont., which killed 10 farm workers from Peru and a Canadian truck driver. Prayer services were attended by police, volunteer firefighters and farmers who had employed the men. Ariza had arrived in Canada three days before the crash. He and 12 other Peruvian workers had just finished their last job at a poultry farm and were headed toward the crossroads community of Hampstead in a

large passenger van. The van failed to stop at the intersection and was struck by a truck. Ten workers and the driver of the truck died. One of the survivors, Edgar Puma, remains in a coma. Javier Medina, also severely injured, returned to Peru and is considering his options. Ariza has been living in a London long-term care facility since his release from hospital. He hasn’t seen his wife for more than a year. Apart from seniors at the facility, his interaction with Canadians has largely been limited to staff

with Ontario’s Workplace Safety & Insurance Board (WSIB), rehabilitation professionals and members of the North Park Community Church in London. Ariza’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program work visa has run out. He’s not sure how long WSIB, which has been paying for his care, will remain involved. A WSIB spokesperson said the agency is unable to comment on individual cases. Long-term support may be available for Ariza, whether he remains in Canada or returns to Peru.

“I feel that because I’m of no more use (as a chicken catcher), they’ll send me back to the employer and the employer will send me back to Peru,” Ariza said. Ariza has a short, stocky build and as a boy loved to play soccer. Today he stands a bit awkwardly and walks the corridors of Kensington Village with a shuffling gait, not unlike many of the elderly residents in the home. He tires quickly. The painkillers he takes three times a day leave him feeling numb. When asked what he’s learned since the accident, Ariza pauses, and with considered words replies, “all things have a beginning and all things have an end.” Tears well in the eyes of the young woman translating his words. Ariza’s gaze remains steady.

I would rather live as a Canadian citizen and live a life of dignity. JUAN ARIZA MIGRANT WORKER

It’s not the frailty of life that he contemplates these days. Despite the pain and the ongoing nightmares, he’s looking forward with hope. He can now walk two or three city blocks without taking a rest. After four months of classes, he can communicate in English. While jobs of a physical nature may be out of the question, Ariza is determined to become capable of supporting his family and making his own way in life. Ariza, the son of a police officer, was born in Peru’s capital, Lima. He went to school to become a bank teller but couldn’t find work in that field. “I was a bartender. I made drinks. I built a house for my wife and I and our son.” The home, with its bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, is built with cement blocks and a concrete roof. Ariza decided to take a chance on Canada when his wife, Ardith, lost her accounting job. In Peru he was earning $10 to $12 a day, working six days a week. He said his wife would certainly be able to find work in Canada if she and her son were allowed to join him. Members of the Nor th Park Community Church, the United Food & Commercial Workers and others have launched a campaign to allow Ar iza to immigrate to Canada. They’re appealing to federal citizenship and immigration minister Jason Kenney, with a petition. As of mid-May, close to 1,500 signatures had been collected. It is felt 25,000 will be needed to make a difference. For more information, visit www.





Plants will turn waste into fertilizer, biogas Conversion process | Two facilities in Alberta will process specified risk material from cattle LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

A plant that will convert specified risk material from cattle into fertilizer and biogas may break ground later this year in Lacombe, Alta. BioRefinex Canada has received environmental and regulator y approvals for a $35 million plant in Lacombe’s industrial park. Now it’s a matter of completing the financing, said BioRefinex president Chris Thrall. “We are intending to process roughly 45,000 tons a year of animal byproducts, and over and above that, we’ll be processing some commercial organic wastes,” said Thrall. The bulk of those animal byproducts will be SRMs that are removed during cattle slaughter as a result of safeguards against BSE. That material is now incinerated or put in landfills. The plant will use patented technology developed by Eric Schmidt, who serves as executive chair and chief science officer on the BioRefinex board. The process uses heat to break

down organic waste into a liquid, which is then subjected to centrifuge to separate it into various nutrient streams. Those nutrients can be used to make phosphorus and nitrogen based fertilizers. “The plant converts organic waste to high grade organic fertilizer and feedstock for biogas that we’ll be turning into renewable electricity. Those are the main outputs,” Thrall said. No chemicals are required, and the thermal hydrolysis process destroys all pathogens including prions associated with BSE. Thrall said the process has been certified by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, the European Union and the World Organization for Animal Health as a successful way to destroy prions. Nutrients from the organic waste are retained. Fats are converted to fatty acids that help fuel biodigesters. Proteins become amino acids used in nitrogen-based fertilizer, and carbohydrates convert to sugar for use in fertilizer. Minerals become the principal part of phosphate fertilizer. Thrall, who comes from a family

Once completed, a biogas plant in Lethbridge will use manure, specified risk material and other organic wastes to produce biogas for electrical generation. A plant in Lacombe, Alta., plans to turn SRM into fertilizer and biogas. | BARB GLEN PHOTO with a long history in the Alberta cattle business, said he is pleased with the plant’s potential to provide greater returns to cattle producers by using material now unprofitable and wasted. “The ultimate goal, of course, through all this is to increasingly bring more value to the cattle producers,” he said. “It’s something that we’re very enthusiastic about and we expect that this have a very positive impact on the producers.”


The technology that will be used in the full-scale Lacombe plant has been licensed for use at a $40 million biogas plant in Lethbridge, which has been under construction since 2011. Lethbridge Biogas is expected to use manure, SRMs, dead stock and other waste to produce an estimated 2.85 megawatts of electricity. That would make it one of the largest biogas operations in Canada. Thrall said the Lethbridge plant will be bigger than the one planned in

Lacombe. The difference is that Lacombe will apply its fractionation process to its feedstock so the material can be used in fertilizer. Lethbridge will divert its material to anaerobic digesters to produce biogas. “Lethbridge will be the first commercial facility that is utilizing the BioRefinex thermal hydrolysis technology, and then our facility is going to be the full application of our patented technology and process that does the thermal hydrolysis and then the fractionation,” said Thrall.

COMMISSION TO SHARE SPACE The Alberta Wheat Commission and Alberta Barley Commission plan to share an office in Calgary through a joint lease agreement signed May 14. The leased 9,000 sq. feet of space will undergo renovations with a planned move-in date sometime in August. It will eventually house nine AWC and 12 ABC personnel. The shared arrangement will allow creative collaboration and a means of aligning with other industry and individuals. The two groups have shared resources before, including trade show space and communications campaigns. Many farmers belong to both organizations because of their crop mix. The other major advantage of shared space is better use of farmers’ check-off dollars that fund both organizations.

AWC, officially formed Aug. 1, 2012, now rents office space on Quarry Park Blvd. in Calgary’s northeast. The ABC has offices on 21st Street, also in the city’s northeast. ALFALFA PROGRAM SET TO GO The Green Gold Program, Alfalfa Scissor Clipping Project is being offered again this year. The program helps predict the date when pure alfalfa stands are at optimum quality (150 RFV). For the past 19 years, alfalfa, dairy, beef and sheep producers have used the program to help predict when their alfalfa is at the optimum stage for their specific use. About 500 producers and industry people are receiving the information from the program. Due to unusual environmental conditions like cool weather and

extreme warming, alfalfa can reach optimum quality well before the traditional early bloom (10 percent flower) stage. In most cases, if producers had waited for the crop to show these signs, harvest would have been delayed by up to two weeks and RFV would have been in the 110 range. Samples are taken at about 8 a.m., twice a week and delivered to the lab before 11 a.m. Results are emailed to producers twice weekly by co-ordinator John McGregor as well as posted on the website. To be added to the mailing list email McGregor at jbmcgee@ GARDEN LINE TAKING CALLS The University of Saskatchewan’s GardenLine is taking calls for this growing season.

Scientists study poultry bacteria able to fight pathogen Probiotic bacteria thickens coat | Researchers hope to develop strain to reduce food poisoning in humans BY MARGARET EVANS FREELANCE WRITER

LINDELL BEACH, B.C. — British researchers have discovered that a strain of probiotic bacteria in poultry can change its coat to fight a pathogen that causes necrotic enteritis in poultry and is one of the most common causes of food poisoning in Britain, the United States and Canada. It is now known that the gastrointestinal tract of poultry is a major reservoir of bacteria that causes food poisoning. The problem bacteria, clostridium perfringens, colonizes the gut of chickens. The probiotic lactobacillus johnsonsii has adapted the thickness of its coat to combat the colonization of C. perfringens. Results of the study from the Institute of Food Research in Norwich, U.K., have been published in the online journal PLoS ONE. According to the report, scientists had previously isolated and characterized lactobacillus johnsonsii from the gut of a healthy chicken that had the capacity to exclude pathogens from the gastrointestinal tract of poultry. This discovery could potentially improve poultry welfare and reduce levels of human food poisoning bacteria from meat products. “At the moment, we know how the coat is made and which genes are involved, but what regulates the expression of the genes involved is not confirmed,” said Arjan Narbad, research leader with the IFR. “We suspect there may be environmental cues that may trigger the regulatory genes to reduce or upregulate the biosynthetic pathways for production of the coat.” The entire genome of the L. johnsonsii bacterium has been sequenced, which has helped scientists better understand the processes of competitive exclusion used at the molecular level. The bacterium actually changes its coat by making it smoother. Narbad called this special coat a slime capsule, which completely surrounds the bacterium and gives it the definitive smooth texture. “The coat is made up of two different types of what we call exopolysaccharides, which are large molecules made up of a combination of different sugars,” said Narbad. “We have now established the detailed structures of these coats and one of them is quite novel. The coat provides a number of functions, such as protection against drying when outside the host and providing resistance to antibiotics. “The coat also protects from the harsh acidic condition in the stomach, for example, and also against bile salts in the small intestine so it can reach the large intestine unharmed where the bacteria can attach and colonize.” The natural appearance of the smooth coat may also be a deliberate variation in its population to take advantage of environments that may be colonized by pathogens. The discovery came about by accident. One of the researchers in Narbad’s group was growing bacteria on petri dishes. The bacterial colonies have a large and rough morphology

in appearance, but she noticed that a small proportion of them were much smaller and looked smoother. “Initially we thought these small colonies were contaminants,” he said. “However, when we performed DNA fingerprinting on these small colonies, we discovered that they were all the same lacobacillus johnsonii as the ones that had large rough colony morphology. Further investigation indicated that it was coat thickness that changed the colony morphology. “We are still some way away from understanding the regulation of the

coat production,” said Narbad. Research has focused on the one strain of bacteria that is of greatest concern, but studies are being planned to see if the coat alteration responds differently in the presence

of different kinds of pathogens. “We have not tested the response of the bacteria to different pathogens, but it is something that we are looking at currently,” he said. “Now that we have sequenced the entire genome of the probiotic strain, we can examine the changes in expression of all the genes under different conditions.” Researchers want to see how they can affect potential pathogens by genetically manipulating the coat gene.

scale farm trials to assess its efficiency.

“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.

Good ‘off year’ for Brazil coffee BRASILIA, Brazil (Reuters) — Top grower Brazil will harvest 48.6 million 60 kilogram bags of coffee in the 2013-14 crop that begins in late May, hitting the midpoint in a January projection of 47 to 50.2 million bags, the agriculture ministry forecast. The ministry’s crop supply agency, Conab, estimated May 14 that production of high quality arabica coffee would reach 36.4 million bags and lower quality robusta output would be 12.2 million bags. The 2013-14 crop comes in a loweroutput “off year” in the biological two-year cycle in Brazil, in which trees produce more one year and less the next. But the variations between harvests are steadily diminishing, Conab said in a report. The crop is forecast to be the larg-

est ever for an “off year,” Conab said. AGFINANCE

Co-ops plan joint venture CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — CHS Inc., the largest U.S. farm co-op, and Nebraska-based Aurora Cooperative have formed a 50-50 joint venture to build and operate a 1.2 million bushel grain facility to load high-speed rail shuttles near Superior, Nebraska. Superior East LLC will begin construction immediately and the facility is expected to be completed in a year. It will include a 120-rail car circle to move corn, soybeans and hard red winter wheat to markets as far west as export terminals in the Pacific Northwest Portland region and southern export facilities in the Gulf as well as into Mexico.

The location will provide a grain ground piling system and 10,000-ton liquid fertilizer storage. PRODUCTION

Thailand grapples with rice mountains BANGKOK, Thailand (Reuters) — Sacred white oxen at a recent plowing ceremony in Thailand predicted a big rice crop. It was an ominous sign for a government running out of space to store vast stocks after two years of buying at above market prices to help farmers. Thailand’s agriculture ministry forecasts production of 27 million tonnes in the 2013-14 main crop in November, up from 26 million tonnes a year earlier, an official at the ceremony said. By choosing corn and grass over other delicacies, the oxen also sig-

naled large harvests for the MayNovember season, according to soothsayers. A state policy of paying farmers 50 percent above market prices, and the government’s unwillingness to then sell the rice at a loss, has already eaten up available storage space, heaping pressure on the government to decide what to do. INTERNATIONAL AID

UN appeals for Niger food aid NIAMEY, Niger (Reuters) — About 800,000 people will require food aid in Niger in the coming months despite a good harvest last year due to problems supplying cereals to markets, which have pushed up prices, and an influx of Malian refugees, the United Nations said. The UN office for humanitarian co-ordination (OCHA) said it would

need food from now until the start of the rainy season, which is usually in June, July and August. It said the situation was critical in 13 regions surveyed by the government in March, where 84,000 people needed emergency food aid. The agency cited problems with supplying food to markets in some areas, such as the northern mining region of Arlit and Tahoua in central Niger and Tillabery in the west, which had driven up cereals prices. Recurrent shortages in recent years have forced nomadic people with grazing animals to sell their livestock, including the valuable young females normally kept for breeding, which had reduced their resistance to food shocks. The presence of some 60,000 refugees from Mali, where a French-led international mission has battled Islamist rebels since January, has exacerbated food shortages in Tillabery and Tahoua, OCHA has said.





CAPP pushes for public access to oil spill info Saskatchewan model suggested | Manitoba farmer wants the government to publish locations, volume and cause on a database BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers says the public has the right to know about oil spills, which is why it supports publishing spill data in Manitoba. This winter a pipeline broke under a field near Cromer, Man., spilling an estimated 100,000 litres onto the soil and potentially into the surrounding watershed. Despite the size of the spill, locals learned about it via word of mouth and other Manitoba residents didn’t hear much about it because the media didn’t pick up on the story. Carlyle Jorgensen, a farmer who owns land near the spill site, wants the provincial government to publish a list of spills so citizens know what is happening on the landscape. Jorgensen would like the province to adopt an approach similar to Saskatchewan, which publishes the Upstream Oil and Gas Spill Database on its website. The database, which goes back to 1990, lists the product spilled, an estimate of volume, location, cause and the company responsible. David Pryce, CAPP vice-president of operations, said the public should have access to information. “The notion of spill data being avail-

able and transparent, I think that’s an expectation of the public,” Pryce said. “We certainly would have no concerns if that data was available to the public…. It’s in our best interest, frankly, that the public have confidence that things are being managed properly.” The Manitoba government, which didn’t provide comment for this story, publishes a weekly well activity report through its petroleum branch, which provides data on new well licences, new wells drilled, well abandonment and other statistics but nothing on reported spills. As well, a statistics page on the petroleum branch website offers detailed data on the number of horizontal wells drilled in a particular year, the metres drilled and the number of wells in operation, but again, no data on spills. Besides concerns over spills, a number of landowners in western Manitoba, including farmer Eldon Boon of Virden, would like the oil industry to remove and remediate abandoned wells more rapidly. Pryce said companies are reluctant to remove wells and pipelines because the infrastructure could be useful for future oil and gas extraction. “Companies don’t want to relinquish that asset if they think there is still hydrocarbons in the ground.”

MANITOBA OIL INDUSTRY • Production in 2012 was a record 18.46 million barrels, which equates to 50,684 barrels per day. • 614 new wells were drilled in Manitoba in 2012, including 566 horizontal wells. Of the horizontal wells, 506 were cased as potential oil producers with a success rate of more than 89 percent. Twelve were abandoned dry. • Manitoba’s oil is of good quality, and in 2012 the average posted selling price for light sour blend crude was $84.53 Cdn per barrel. • The value of Manitoba oil sold in 2012 was approximately $1.51 billion. Source: Province of Manitoba


Pryce said the well could also be used for other functions. “If there is a wellhead there, they could turn that into a disposal well.” He said CAPP hasn’t directly heard

complaints from landowners in southwestern Manitoba about grievances with the oil industry, but the industry and government have a responsibility to listen and respond

to concerns if there are issues. “The companies, for the most part, want to hear from the landowner,” he said. “That communication should be part of the business practice.”


Biologists debate effects of Roundup exposure on frogs BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Biologists have spent the last decade trying to answer a question largely ignored by mainstream agriculture: is Roundup particularly toxic to frogs? Two Canadian studies, published in 2012, have moved scientists closer to a satisfactory answer, but a definitive result remains elusive, says a University of Ottawa biologist who specializes in fish and frogs. “I don’t think we have the clear answer yet, but it is clear that the (frog) species makes a difference and the water (pH) makes a difference,” said Vance Trudeau, a research chair in neuroendocrinology. “It’s really tough (to answer). Some studies are very clear that there are major impacts (on frogs). Others are showing there is less of an impact…. It really comes down to what species of frog you’re talking about…. Some frog species have different sensitivities to these toxins.” North American scientists began to look seriously at glyphosate formulations and frogs in the early 2000s, after several lab studies showed that surfactants in the formulations are deadly to tadpoles. For instance, Trent University biologists and Bruce Pauli, chief of ecosystem health research with the National Wildlife Research Centre in Ottawa, exposed tadpoles to Roundup Transorb, glyphosate and a surfactant added to glyphosate formulations called polyethoxylated tal-

Researchers continue to search for answers to whether frogs are particularly susceptible to Roundup. It might depend on the species of frog and the pH of the water. | DESROSIERS PHOTO lowamine (POEA). Surfactants, or detergents, are added to glyphosate formulations because they break down the waxy coating on plant leaves, which allows glyphosate to penetrate the plant tissue. Pauli and his colleagues found that glyphosate alone wasn’t toxic to northern leopard frog tadpoles, but the surfactants caused reproductive and growth malfunctions. “Tadpoles exposed to either POEA or Roundup Original showed tail and growth abnormalities, a decrease in successful metamorphosis and an increased percentage of intersex frogs,” biologists wrote in a 2004 paper.

Looking back at the study, Pauli said the results weren’t surprising. “(It) confirmed what other studies had already showed. If you have glyphosate formulated product with that surfactant in it, it’s the surfactant causing the toxicity.” Some biologists condemned Pauli’s lab experiments as unrealistic when his research and other papers were published. They claimed the laboratory exposure rates were much higher than rates found in natural settings, such as sloughs and marshes. To address the doubts surrounding lab studies, biologists began testing glyphosate formulations in wetlands and other natural settings.

Scientists at the Long Term Experimental Wetlands Area in Gagetown, N.B., used curtains to separate a wetland into halves. One half was dosed with a glyphosate formulation and the other half was not to determine if the chemical affects frogs at the larval and tadpole stages. Dean Thompson, a research scientist with Natural Resources Canada who collaborated with University of Guelph and University of New Brunswick researchers on several such studies in Gagetown, said the results are consistent and clear. “That is, under typical environmental exposure scenarios of the glyphosate-based herbicide products we have studied, toxic effects on sensitive amphibian larvae or juveniles frogs are improbable.” For example, Chris Edge, who worked with Thompson, wrote in a paper published last year in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry that there is “little evidence that application of the glyphosate-based herbicide VisionMAX has a negative effect on L. clamitans (frog larvae) abundance or growth.” However, Trudeau said the science isn’t quite that black and white. It depends on the species of frog, the pH of the water and the type of surfactant in the glyphosate formulation. In a 2012 experiment that divided ponds in half, Trudeau and his colleagues concluded that Roundup Weathermax did not have major effects on tadpole numbers. However, there was evidence of

endocrine disruption, or interference with hormonal systems in the immature frogs. Trudeau said experiments have shown that the pH of the water alters the toxicity of the surfactants. They are less toxic in neutral or acidic water, but in basic water the “toxicity goes way up,” he added. As well, certain surfactants are more hazardous to frogs than others, but it’s difficult for scientists to test particular surfactants because glyphosate formulations are proprietary. “We know that the Roundup (Original) surfactant is polyethoxylated tallowamine (POEA),” Pauli said. “We don’t know, for instance, (what’s) in the Weathermax. We assume it’s a POEA, but we don’t know.” Pauli said the science that shows surfactants are toxic to frogs at certain exposure levels means chemical companies should switch to less hazardous surfactants. “There should be some mechanism whereby you could change the formulation a little bit to reduce the aquatic toxicity or eliminate the aquatic toxicity.” Trudeau agreed, noting biologists need to know more about the surfactants and the ag industry should use “the one that is the least dangerous.” Pauli said mitigating the risk of glyphosate formulations is a significant biological issue, because ponds, sloughs and ditches are the only habitat for frogs in intensive agricultural areas.





Tote box delivers crop uniformity Seed totes | Speed King retains seed integrity and uniformity from seed cleaning plant to field planter BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

A pretty decent crop could be expected if every seed going into a specific field was uniform in size, weight, shape and quality. Seed uniformity within a field means that everything should happen at the same time if Mother Nature is kind: germination, emergence, application of crop protection products and harvest. Uniformity is possible and even routine on some farms, where every seed going into a specific field comes off the same seed run. However, all the benefit of seed uniformity disappears the moment those valuable seeds go into bags. It’s impossible to keep track of every seed in a seed lot from the cleaning plant to the field. Seed totes have emerged as a solution, but the tender system remains a nagging issue because tractors and drills can waste valuable time waiting for seed. The tender issue is even more complex if the producer wants to retain the integrity of seed from plant to drill. The tote system is designed to do that, but it must keep up with the efficiency of a modern seeding operation. Crust Buster Speed King of Dodge City, Kansas, is one of the manufacturers stepping up to the tote challenge. The entire Speed King line of tender carts has been designed to feed today’s high-efficiency seeding systems, said dealer Kellen Huber of TriStar Farm Services in Grand Coulee, Sask. “Producers are doing a lot more acres today and they’re more aware of the quality of the seed they’re putting in the ground,” Huber said. “When Pioneer introduced their Probox Tenders, that was really the solution guys were looking for. But producers needed the right equipment to handle those boxes efficiently.” Huber said Speed King’s handling equipment lets the seed tender keep pace with planting and seeding equipment. It won’t leave tractors, planters

and drills sitting idle waiting for seed. “Take canola for example,” he said. “Even if you buy quality seed from a reputable source, every bag has different seed sizes, different gram weights per thousand and other variations. CONTINUED ON THE NEXT PAGE

“When you buy a Probox with 2,000 pounds of canola seed, all those seeds are identical. They all came off the same run. End result is a better crop. Now think about 40 bags of seed at 50 lb. each. You can get a real mix of different seed going through your drill.” A high capacity bulk cart and a four-box rotary seed handling cart are two of Speed King’s main seed handling devices. The four-box unit carries four 2,000 lb. Proboxes on a large, rotating platform. The rotary cart allows producers to either feed a lot of one seed variety to a single large seeding operation or four different crops to four different fields. The operator rotates the turntable to position the desired Probox over the discharge conveyor. The gate closes tightly when the seed load is delivered so no cleanout is needed and there is no cross contamination on the delivery belt. The four-box rotary seed handling tote is mounted on a twin axle trailer. Speed King also has bulk delivery carts from 160 to 330 bushels on triple axles. The large cart has a 180 degree pivot conveyor with a three-piece telescoping downspout that extends to 12 feet, making seed delivery a oneman operation. The cart has two individual compartments that have automatic cleanout with no cross contamination. The conveyor has an eight inch belt running in a six inch tube. Discharge varies from 500 to 900 lb. per minute, depending on the product. Options include a liquid inoculators and digital scales. For more information, contact Huber at 306-586-1603 or visit www.

Vegetables could improve canola performance Hybrid crop | Alberta scientist believes genes from vegetable crops could improve disease resistance and yields BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

EDMONTON — Cabbage, cauliflower, rutabaga and brussels sprouts may hold the key to improved disease resistance and higher canola yields, says a University of Alberta plant breeder. Habibur Rahman said he hopes the thousands of genes locked into vegetable crops and other members of the brassica family will help him develop more genetic diversity in canola. “The wide diversity in this species can be used for the improvement of canola,” Rahman said during an announcement that his canola breeding program will receive $3.1 million in cash and in-kind donations over the next five years. “There are thousands of genes that contribute to yield that we don’t see,” said Rahman. “That’s what I am trying to sort out, the genes that will give higher yielding canola and resistance to disease.” Viterra Inc. has committed $1.6 million in financing and in-kind donations, and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council will provide $1.5 million. B r u c e Ha r r i s o n , d i r e c t o r o f research and development with Viterra, said the money would be used to help Rahman create more diverse germplasm that can be used to develop superior canola hybrids.

With $3.1 million in funding, University of Alberta plant breeder Habibur Rahman will look for genes in vegetable crops that could be used to breed improved varieties of canola. | FILE PHOTO “Our objective is to create and commercialize hybrids having improved agronomic traits, including clubroot, one of the emerging challenges, and increased yields that will benefit growers across Western Canada,” said Harrison. “Longer term we are working with the university to bring much needed

genetic diversity so we can tackle some of these long-term challenges faced by farmers with respect to emerging diseases, but established diseases as well, and together we can create higher yielding, more stable crops.” Rahman worked for a private company in Denmark developing new canola varieties before coming to the U of A.

He now has more time to work on basic cultivar and plant breeding research, including finding lines of canola resistant to clubroot. “We will be doing basic plant breeding research. This will benefit the entire canola industry. We want to try to sort out which gene is contributing to yield and agronomic

properties,” he said. “There is a lot of scope for improving yield in canola.” U of A vice-provost Bill Connor said these kinds of funding announcements are easily understood. “It helps farmers, it helps people eat, it changes the world for the better, it’s a partnership.”



Growers should be motivated by more than science

New 2,4-D and glyphosate product approved



Science is a powerful tool but it can’t answer, ‘what should we do?’


e often hear that we should make decisions based on science, which seems to be the logical and smart approach. Science is a strong tool that provides a rigorous way of answering questions and can identify correlations and sometimes cause and effect. However, like all tools, science has its limitations. Science cannot answer questions such as, “what should we do?” Science can identify some of the possible consequences of our options, but then we must determine which options, and which potential consequences, we choose. This is a decision based on our values, whether we express it that way or not. Science provides answers that

depend directly on the questions we ask. There is never enough time or money to answer all possible questions, so our values determine which direction our questions take and which answers we are willing to seek. Our values also determine how much we question and how long we look for answers. Deciding to make science-based policies does not take our values out of the decision making. I teach an online organic weed management course. Each year, my students study classical biocontrol, in which insects may be released to attack specific weeds and reduce the weed’s numbers. This involves a great expense because rigorous testing is required to assure that potential control agents don’t harm other species and are adapted to local environments. It offers the potential to reduce the level of the weed to the point where no further controls are required. Each year, I ask my students if they feel this expense is justified, and why. Students usually reply that they either feel it is justified because there is a one time investment for a fairly permanent solution, or they don’t feel it is justified because other methods are simpler, there is too much risk in the agent causing unanticipated damage or the weed is being replaced by other, bigger problems. A couple of years ago, I had a par-

ticularly entrepreneurial group, who generally felt that the cost of investing in biocontrol was not justified because its efficacy would assure that there would be no ongoing sales of the control agents. In each of these examples, the science remains the same. The decision making is based on values. We need to consider the underlying values when science based decisions are made. For instance, who benefits, and who pays the price, when specific technologies, such as genetic modification, are introduced? Must science-based decisions approve biotechnology because biotech companies use science to develop it? Of course not. We still need to consider how the technology fits with our values and how well we trust the science behind it. There is concern in pharmaceutical and biotech research that corporate agendas may determine which studies are reported and which questions are asked. Some biotech companies have been accused of restricting research on the potential risks of their products by refusing or restricting scientists’ access to their seeds and data. Preventing research that indicates potential risks does not reduce those risks. There can be significant risks in biotechnology, food safety or envi-

ronmental sciences. If our values include human health and environmental health, our science should include risk assessments in these areas. We should also oppose attempts by government and industry to gag, harass and fire scientists whose work suggests that some technologies present risks that haven’t been fully considered or that might run contrary to current political or corporate philosophies. The organic community has been described as anti-science, as holding on to outdated notions from a time before science brought us “better living through chemistry” and GM. Although the organic community does reject GM, and most synthetic plant/insect/fungus killers, is that really anti-science? Of course not. These are policy decisions based on values about what creates and maintains the health of the environment, of farm workers, and of eaters and that place the wellbeing of family farms above that of larger-scale agribusinesses. The organic community does favour science that identifies and mimics natural processes and develops minimally invasive technology.

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency has approved a new 2,4-D and glyphosate formulation for use on corn and soybean crops. The seeds that will be resistant to Dow’s new Enlist Duo formulation were approved last fall. However, Dow says it won’t sell the new system in Canada until approval is received in the United States. American regulators recently announced they would need more time to examine the product combination before granting approval. Dow had already delayed the release of Enlist Duo in the U.S. to 2014 from 2013 amid an outcry from U.S. environmental groups who claim that the product would result in more weeds developing resistance to 2,4-D and glyphosate and that its popularity would cause increased use of 2,4-D. “Growing farmer concern of hard to kill and resistant weeds in corn and soybeans in Canada supports the need for this technology,” Jim Wispinski, president of Dow’s agricultural division in Canada, said in a statement. The company had planned to sell the corn variety in Canada this year and soybeans in 2015.





Foxtail barley has become a perennial problem in minimum tillage fields across Western Canada. But how did it get this way? The plant is a poor competitor and can be killed with a variety of herbicides. Tillage is the most effective control, but most producers no longer use it. Hordeum jubatum thrives where there has been too much water and where salinity is high. It also does well in areas where it is left alone, or in fields where cereals are a major part of the rotation. The effects of several years of flooding and saturated soils that prevented cropping and weed control in large areas of Western Canada have contributed greatly to the pest’s rise. Seeds can germinate and create viable seedlings in any part of the growing season and are wind carried and capable of surviving in the soil for up to seven years. Patch control is encouraged because foxtail barley can be controlled with aggressive steps with little loss of crop. Heavy, aggressive cropping, combined with herbicides can weed out this weed. Herbicide tolerant cropping, where dense crop canopies such as glyphosate or other herbicide tolerant canola can be established, along with a pair of pesticide applications that

Foxtail barley can be eliminated using heavy crop canopies and herbicide combinations. | can take place in-crop, can be effective against foxtail barley, which is also know as wild barley. Late fall applications of herbicides provide better control of established

foxtail barley plants than spring applications. Suppression is usually the best that can be expected in foxtail barley infestations for in-season applica-


tions of most herbicides. The use of combination products like Rustler, glyphosate and dicamba, at 1.26 litres per acre are also effective before the initiation of the

seed head or when bottom leaves begin to brown off. G l y p h o s at e a n d E x p re s s S G, tribenuron, are also used for suppression of this stubborn cereal. In broadleaf crops Post Ultra, sethoxydim, at .45 litre per acre provides suppression before tillering of the weed. Assure 2 and Yuma, quizalofop, can also be effective for post emergent use. Everest can be effective in controlling multiple flushes of the pest’s seedlings. Dicamba, Banvel or Oracle, and 2,4-D at the highest rates might provide control in grass pasture and other conditions. Dyvel DSP is a combination product, but the weed is not on that label. Gramoxone, paraquat, at a rate of 2.23 litres per acre in 98 gallons per acre of water, 75 millilitres with 2.2 gallons will kill top growth and likely any seedlings. Adding granular ammonium sulfate to a glyphosate application at three kilograms of 21:00:24 per 100 litres, can improve the effectiveness of the herbicide, especially in tough growing conditions or in the fall. Premixing the fertilizer into solution is required. In established alfalfa seed crops and grass and legume pastures, the use of Kerb 50 W, propyzamide, can be used later in the fall or in early spring. There is a 60 day grazing and haying restriction.

Registration change plan protested Public input sought | National Farmers Union opposes move to eliminate field testing of forage and soybean crops BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A proposal to change the way new forage and soybean varieties are registered in Canada has prompted a c o n c e r n e d re s p o n s e f ro m t h e National Farmers Union. However, others in the industry say there is no need to be alarmed by the changes, as long as independent trial data comparing varietal performance is still available. Under changes being proposed by Ottawa, new varieties of soybeans and forage crops, including alfalfa, would no longer be subject to field testing or merit assessment before registration. If approved, the changes would allow developers of new soybean and forage lines to register their varieties more quickly and at a lower cost, supporters say. However, those opposed say the changes would allow more varieties of questionable economic value to enter the marketplace and permit seed companies to de-register varieties at will, regardless of their value to farmers. “If companies are allowed to deregister varieties, they can stop farmers from accessing and using perfectly good varieties,” said NFU president Terry Boehm. “We expect seed companies will use this opportunity to put farmers on a variety treadmill, de-registering

old varieties so that the only varieties available to them will be expensive new varieties subject to patent restrictions or royalty charges under plant breeders rights,” Boehm said. Added Ian Robson, Manitoba coordinator for the NFU: “Variety trials ensure that new varieties are a fit for Canadian growing or market conditions.” The NFU is urging Canadians to voice their opinions on the proposed changes, which can be viewed online at in the Canada Gazette. Public comments are being accepted until May 23. The variety registration system was amended in 2009 to create a more flexible system for registering new varieties of seed crops. Under those changes, crops that require registration were divided into three categories, with each category having different registration requirements. Crops listed in the third category have the least onerous requirements and do not require pre-registration testing or merit assessment. Seed developers seeking registration can apply directly to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Aaron Ivey, president of the Saskatchewan Forage Council, said he doesn’t think placing forages into the third category will be detrimental to

forage growers. Even without mandatory pre-registration trials, forage seed developers will still benefit from placing their new varieties in comparative postregistration trials and farmers will demand performance data. “The industry and producers themselves are going to demand that,” Ivey said. “If you look at the canola industry, for example, those companies do a lot of field scale testing and trials … to demonstrate their products and show their superiority…. I don’t see why that’s going to be any different in the forage industry.” Corie Arbuckle, executive director of the Manitoba Forage Council, said eliminating pre-registration trials will emphasize the importance of post-registration testing programs such as the Manitoba Forage Crop Variety Testing Program. Arbuckle said steps should be taken to ensure that seed developers are required to place new varieties in post–registration trials. “If (companies) don’t have to … place their new products in those trials, then producers won’t know how those products are going to perform,” Arbuckle said. “If you are growing a crop like canola, you can find out how it performs in a year … but when you’re growing a forage variety, that’s some-

The federal government says discussion documents were distributed

to 1,500 seed industry stakeholders in 2010, and feedback was sought from all affected parties. Crops affected by the proposed changes include oilseed soybeans, alfalfa, bird’s foot trefoil, bromegrass, canarygrass, all types of clover, forage-type fescues, lupins, orchardgrass, ryegrass, timothy wheat grasses and wild rye.

Taxpayers help biotech lobby: report

(Reuters) — U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill for overseas lobbying that promotes controversial biotech crops, according to a report issued earlier this month. A review of 926 diplomatic cables of correspondence to and from the U.S. State Department and embassies in more than 100 countries found that State Department officials promoted the commercialization of specific biotech seeds, according to the report issued by Food & Water Watch, a nonprofit consumer protection group. The officials tried to quash public criticism of particular companies and facilitated negotiations between foreign governments and seed companies over issues such as patents and intellectual property, the report said. The cables show U.S. diplomats supporting Monsanto, the world’s largest seed company, even after the company paid $1.5 million in fines after being charged with bribing an Indonesian official and violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in 2005. One 2009 cable shows the embassy in Spain seeking “high-level U.S. government intervention” at the “urgent request” of Monsanto to combat biotech crop opponents there, accord-

ing to the report. It covered cables from 2005-09 that were released by Wikileaks in 2010 as part of a much larger release of diplomatic cables that it had obtained. Monsanto spokesperson Tom Helscher said Monsanto believes it is critical to maintain an open dialogue with government authorities and trade groups in other countries. Food & Water Watch said the cables it examined provide a detailed account of how far the State Department goes to support and promote the interests of the agricultural biotech industry, which has had a hard time gaining acceptance in many foreign markets. “It really goes beyond promoting the U.S.’s biotech industry and agriculture,” said Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch. “It really gets down to twisting the arms of countries and working to undermine local democratic movements that may be opposed to biotech crops, and pressuring foreign governments to also reduce the oversight of biotech crops.” However, U.S. officials, biotech companies and industry experts routinely say that biotech crops are needed to increase global food production as population expands.


Gov’t urged to pool funds for wheat gene research

Genome sequencing | Initiative aims to boost wheat yields to meet demand PARIS, France (Reuters) — World governments have been urged to fund a map of wheat’s unusually complex genetic code to help boost crop yields and feed growing world demand. Five times bigger than the human genome, the mysteries of the world’s most widely seeded crop could be fully sequenced by late 2016 with financing of just $20 million, said Helene Lucas, co-ordinator of the Wheat Initiative, set up by the G20 economic powers to help avert food crises. “We have reached a plateau in output. We now have to make a further step to produce more, produce better, by using all the tools available to us,” said Lucas, a scientist at France’s National Institute for Agricultural Research. “If we pool our financing now we can achieve a high-quality sequencing at the end of 2016 that will be available to everyone.” It would mean her international agency’s 14 state-funded members putting up a modest $1.4 million each over three years. “That’s peanuts.” Flagging growth in wheat yields has raised concern that countries will not be able to achieve the 60 percent rise in production by 2050 that the United Nations says is needed to meet rising demand from a growing population and a shift in appetites toward western-style

bread, cakes and biscuits. The G20 set up the Wheat Initiative in 2011, concerned that shortages and swings in prices were damaging the world economy. Completely decoding the wheat genome should give scientists a basis to create varieties of wheat better able to withstand disease or a harsh climate, Lucas said. That could involve modifying genes or developing new strains in traditional ways. Lack of funding has held up international research efforts to map the wheat genome, which have also been marked by rivalry among scientific teams and the publication of partial results. “What has been produced by a certain number of teams so far are pieces of partial sequencing, not necessarily in the right order, either of wheat or species close to wheat,” Lucas said. “It’s useful but not a full and high-

quality sequence of wheat.” One of 21 wheat chromosomes — chromosome 3B — has been fully mapped in an INRA-led project that is due to be published soon. That alone is three times the size of the rice genome. Average annual growth in wheat yields worldwide slowed to 1.1 percent between 2001 and 2010. The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization says that needs to rebound to 1.6 percent to provide sufficient wheat by 2050. Yet research investment in wheat is only a quarter of what it has been in corn, which private businesses find easier and more profitable to manipulate. Genetically modified wheat is not in production, although there are some trials. However, Lucas said the proposed genetic research would also help improve yields through traditional plant-breeding techniques. She said the genome map could help produce ways to bring forward the plant’s flowering cycle to cooler weeks earlier in the year. However, gene sequencing is not the answer to all problems: wheat yields in Africa and other developing regions could be raised simply through better farming. “For Africa, GMOs are not a priority, it is rather agronomy,” Lucas said. “There is no one magic solution for all.”

Vaccination programs best if individualized Tetanus tops recommended vaccines | A drop in vaccinations for West Nile Virus increases danger of epidemic, warns expert BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

Spring vaccination appointments for horses are one of Dr. Ashley Whitehead’s favourite times. It’s a quiet chance to look over a horse, chat with the owner about problems and do a physical examination as part of a preventive medicine package. “We’re not dealing with fire engine medicine,” said Whitehead, an instructor in large animal internal medicine at the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. Whitehead’s approach to equine vaccinations is not cast in stone. What the veterinarian recommends for a performance horse is different than what she recommends for a horse that stands in the pasture year round. “There is really no one size fits all.” Whitehead said the American

Association of Equine Practitioners breaks vaccines into two groups: core vaccines that it suggests all horses receive and non-core vaccines that may be recommended, depending on the horse’s activity. In Western Canada, the core vaccines are tetanus, eastern and western equine encephalitis and West Nile Virus. In Eastern Canada, the rabies vaccine is added to the core vaccines. Tetanus is the No. 1 recommended vaccine because horses are exposed to a lot of opportunities to get tetanus through cuts, scratches and punctures. “Every single horse should get it every single year,” said Whitehead. The next most recommended vaccines are for mosquito-borne diseases such as West Nile Virus and eastern and western equine encephalitis. Whitehead is concerned there has been a drop in vaccinating for West Nile Virus, especially since the out-

break in 2001, because horse owners believe the danger of another epidemic is past. She said fewer people choosing to vaccinate for West Nile Virus makes it more likely there are fewer antibodies in horses and therefore less protection against the virus in the horse population. It’s a serious disease that can cause death or lasting damage to a horse. Whitehead said fewer people vaccinating against West Nile increases the likelihood that the virus will spread. Vaccines for eastern and western equine encephalitis always come as a pair and should be also given annually, she added. Whitehead recommended vaccinating for all mosquito-borne diseases before mosquito season to allow horses time to build up antibodies against the disease. The rabies vaccine isn’t given often on the Prairies because of the low

prevalence of the disease. However, horses travelling to Ontario should be given a rabies vaccine. The non-core vaccines vary depending on the activity of the horse, she said. The most common non-core vaccine is to protect against equine herpes, which can cause respiratory disease and abortion. It is most common in young horses. The equine influenza virus also affects young horses and is one of the most common infectious diseases of the respiratory system. Whitehead recommended giving the vaccine if horses are mingling at barns, trail

rides or horse shows. Strangles is a highly contagious disease that causes horses to have swollen lymph nodes. Whitehead said it is possible for horses to get the disease even after being vaccinated. “The vaccine reduces the likelihood of the disease,” said Whitehead. Some horse owners vaccinate twice a year, especially for respiratory tract infections, depending on the area and the contact with other horses. There is no reliable data on how long vaccines last, but they all work to boost immunity in the animal. “Vaccination definitely helps the prevention of disease.”

Improper deworming leads to parasite resistance Test deworming program | Fecal samples will determine which horses are low shedders and can be treated less frequently BY CHELSEY SCHAFFEL FREELANCE WRITER

SASKATOON — Internal parasites can present risks to horses’ health, including colic, diarrhea, respiratory disease, decreased performance, rapid weight loss, loss of body condition and even death. But many horse owners may not realize some traditional deworming practices are making parasites immune to the treatments. Parasite resistance results from improper dosing, incorrect administration of medication and overtreatment by deworming too often or deworming horses that don’t need it. While rotating different classes of dewormers was once thought to slow or prevent resistance, evidence shows this is not the case. Exposing parasites to more kinds of dewormers, more often, gives them more opportunities to develop immunity. Resistance affects entire farms, not just individual horses. Because resistance to all classes of dewormers has been documented, horse owners are advised to rethink deworming practices before anti-parasite drugs become ineffective. Strategies like good pasture management and intelligent use of rotational and interval deworming has proven merits. However, veterinarians now recommend incorporating simple tests to gauge how well a deworming program is working, and avoid administering ineffective treatments that promote further resistance. Veterinarians use a fecal egg count test (FECT) to identify the type and quantity of parasites in a horse. Fecal samples are examined under a microscope and a horse that consistently produces samples containing more than 200 parasite eggs per gram is classified a high shedder. One that produces fewer is a low shedder. Though only 20 percent of the horses in a herd typically harbour 80 percent of the worms, all horses have been traditionally treated the same. Veterinarians now recommend deworming low shedders less frequently than high shedders, or sometimes not at all. This retains a population of para-

The efficacy of dewormers can be determined by a fecal egg count reduction test administered 14 days after deworming has been done. | CHELSEY SCHAFFEL PHOTO sites that are not yet resistant to dewormers and can dilute the population of resistant worms by breeding with them. Plus, treating the low shedders less often saves money. “When first instituting fecal egg counts in your herd, each (adult) horse should be tested once in the spring and again in the fall,” said Dr. Katherine Robinson, the equine field service resident at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon. “A third test may be recommended the following spring, depending on the findings for the individual horse.” Horses less than a year old should be monitored more frequently. Once a horse is dewormed follow-

ing a FECT, a fecal egg count reduction test, or FECRT, can be performed 14 days later to determine the efficacy of the dewormer. An egg count reduction of 95 percent means the dewormer was effective. If the count is reduced by less than that, resistance is a concern. To collect and prepare samples: • Watch each horse defecate. • Wearing latex gloves, take one or two fecal balls per horse from the top of the pile, avoiding samples that have touched the ground. • Place each sample in its own zippered plastic bag or sealable plastic container, labelling it with the corresponding horse’s name. • Refrigerate or transport in a cooler if samples cannot be taken to a

veterinary lab within about 45 minutes after collection. Hatched eggs cannot be identified under the microscope so the results would falsely show a lower egg count for that horse. Robinson cautions against purchasing do-it-yourself kits because of the challenges involved with handling a microscope and correctly identifying egg species. “There is potential for much to be either missed or over-interpreted when owners do fecal egg count tests themselves, leading to inaccurate counts,” she said. “Most veterinary labs charge between $15 and $40 to run a FECT.” Depending on herd size and test frequency, this may prove more eco-

nomical than a kit that can cost up to $700. Taking samples to a lab also provides greater confidence in test results. Ideally, the whole herd should be tested at the same time. “It is probably more important that when horses are dewormed, the entire herd (or horses that need to be done, based on fecal egg counts) is done at once. This … will help increase the efficacy of other management practices, such as manure removal, rotation of pastures and harrowing of pastures,” said Robinson. FECT and FECRT take the guesswork out of deworming. Tests are simple, cost-effective and can benefit animal health.


Early detection method of bison respiratory disease sought New research funding | Veterinarians are hoping to develop a vaccine for mycoplasma bovis and a way to detect the illness through blood samples BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Additional funding has been secured to continue studies on a fatal respiratory disease in bison. Mycoplasma bovis is considered one of the most significant diseases affecting bison in North America and the number one killer. Considered a secondary disease in cattle, it has lethal effects on bison. Some prairie herds have seen up to

30 percent death loss, and many more see losses in the 10 to 15 percent range. “In bison, from all we can tell, it’s like a primary disease. It really pulls them down and kills them eventually, although a lot of them end up being put down just because they’re so skinny,” said Dr. Roy Lewis, who is part of a research team investigating the illness. “We’ve been working on it for a couple years now but we’re continu-

ing the research on it. We’re ramping it up with the University of Calgary,” said Lewis. He and three other veterinarians have autopsied 100 bison and now have funding through the Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency to do another 80, this time concentrating on older animals. Researchers at the U of C veterinary school are working on ways to detect the illness sooner, possibly by blood samples.

As wild animals, bison tend to hide illnesses and it is often too late to take action once symptoms become obvious. “The first thing you notice is they’re losing weight, and then you notice they are coughing and breathing heavy,” said Lewis. Three to four weeks later, they die. There is no vaccine available for mycoplasma bovis, although researchers are working on it. Among them are veterinarians and

researchers Pat Burrage, Murray Woodbury, Dave Hunter and Claire Windeyer. Lewis said there is some evidence that bison can develop immunity, provided initial exposure is minimal. Determining how to provide that is the tricky part. The disease is spread by direct contact between animals. There is also a possibility of non-symptomatic shedders of the organisms involved but more research on that is needed.





New technology helps probe into meat quality Scan assesses meat and fat | DEXA and near infrared technology could provide more reliable data for meat grading BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

LACOMBE, Alta. — Visual appraisal plays a large part in meat grading, but instruments with a basis in human medicine could add a new dimension to how pork and beef quality is assessed. “We are just in the investigation process to see how far we can go with the quality aspects,” said Jennifer Aalhus, an Agriculture Canada meat researcher at the department’s research centre in Lacombe. Researchers are testing hand-held probes, which assess the chemistry of meat, and dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), which uses X-ray beams to look at bones, fat and muscle, to determine where they might fit in carcass quality analysis. Aalhus said researchers struggled with compositional carcass analysis when she started her career more than 20 years ago, so these new technologies have improved the understanding of what is going on under the hide. Beef plant graders look at the rib eye and fat cover while pork graders check the loin with a Destron grading probe that goes into the third and fourth last ribs. A complete scan from a DEXA could provide far more information on fat and lean meat yield. These units are more commonly used for bone density scans in human medicine. Meat companies could eventually use DEXA information for more accurate analysis and preparation, said Oscar Lopez Campos, who has been working with the unit since it was installed at the research centre in September. “When the carcass comes through, or the whole primal, the DEXA is going to take the equation and tell you how much lean and how much performance is in the retail cuts,” he said. The device can scan the entire side of a hog and assess the amount of lean meat yield and fat. He said the industry needs new assessment tools because the last algorithm to predict lean meat yields in cattle was developed in 1993. The

cattle population has changed since then. “Probably that yield algorithm isn’t functioning ideally in our current system, but to do those national beef cutouts, it is very costly and it is a huge amount of man hours,” Aalhus said. “It is just something that becomes more difficult as time moves on. The DEXA will be able to be linked into research projects so that we can much more quickly get compositional information on animals as they go through.” The pork project should be complete next year, and beef will continue for another year after that. In another lab, Nuria Prieto is using near infrared technology to collect data from carcasses to assess such factors as fatty acid composition. Analysis of fatty acids is normally time consuming, but this program allows measurements to be taken in a few seconds. Prieto can insert a probe into the loin and receive data within five seconds, which she enters into a laptop computer. The probes show her the molecular bonds of carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen. “From that we can get information about the composition of the meat and the fatty acid composition because they are based on hydrogen bonds,” she said. The unit is small and portable and could conceivably go into a packing plant and work as rapidly as current grading systems. She is also looking at pigs’ ears to estimate fat composition while they are still alive. This information can assess if a special feeding regime such as flax or distillers grain can change fat composition. It could also show if adjustments need to be made because of the type of fat produced. For example, producers can adjust their feed programs if a pig is producing fat that is too soft. Some of this work is being tested with Olymel, one of Canada’s major pork processors. “Our industry is poised to really take advantage of a lot of these technologies,” said Aalhus.

Summer essentials: sunshine and beef aplenty for the grill COWBOY LOGIC



e didn’t get much of a chance at spring this year on the northern Plains, which is too bad because spring is probably my favourite season. I may be speaking too soon, but it looks like we’ll basically go from winter right into summer. When remnants of the December snowbanks are still hanging on in the

shade of the trees in May, it means winter was a pretty extended affair. If they’re still here two weeks from now, we may have to reclassify them as glaciers. I suppose there are some good tradeoffs to the extended cool weather. If you forget your groceries in the car trunk overnight when you get home from town, it’s just like having them in the fridge or freezer. The milk won’t spoil and the butter stays firm. The oranges and the broccoli might take a tough hit, however. Considering the way we managed our family beef supply this year, it’s a good thing we had a little extra cool weather. As usual, we eat our mistakes and grill our problems.  The yearling heifers that didn’t breed up or breed in season got fed a little extra this winter in anticipation

of a trip to the abattoir. I always use the word “abattoir” when I’m within earshot of the cattle destined for that end. I’m assuming, of course, that my cattle don’t understand French, and will feel less distressed than if I said words like “the butcher shop.” Bon appetit. Our young, growing family requires a lot of protein, and for us, that means a lot of hamburger. Luckily, we had an old cow with a stiff, arthritic hip to put in the abattoir bound pen with two heifers. “They’d just steal her anyway if we took her to town to the auction,” we tell ourselves each year when we discover an old cow with a bad gimp or a hitch in her get along. “We’ll make hamburger out of her.” Of course, I’ve never had a cow buyer say it really hurt their feelings

not to get a chance at these kind of cows in the sales ring. The way it works on our place, these cows and heifers meet their end right on the ranch in as peaceful and respectful a way as possible. Once that’s done, we haul the carcasses, lightened of what could be classified as all natural, premium ranch dog food, to the local abattoir for cutting, processing and packaging. That’s where the extra cool weather this year came in handy. It got a little late and into what might have been warm weather time when we got around to doing this job. But no worries about getting carcasses to or meat home from 37 miles away with any sunshine or thawing this year. We may not have retrieved these packages of steaks, roasts and ham-

burger until the first week of May, but it was still nice and cold for the trip in the plastic crates and cardboard boxes in the back of our pickup. It was a pretty pristine operation, a good chill in the air, not a bug in sight, and any bacteria or pathogens are left shivering and hiding well away from our food supply. There’s some satisfaction to having a full freezer. Now, when I invite friends and family to come visit and spend a night or two with us, I finish with, “don’t worry, we have plenty of fresh beef.” Of course, if it’s hamburgers we throw on the grill, I skip over the part about the stiff hip and the arthritis.

Scrotal size does matter but there is an upper limit ANIMAL HEALTH


Producers should be aware of scrotal size when selecting their herd sires


urebred breeders strive for the perfect reproductive bull and go to great measures to select for scrotal size. It has long been accepted that scrotal size is a good measure of sperm production. Larger testicles generally should produce more sperm, making the bull more fertile. Testicular size is moderately to highly heritable (0.4-.75) and purebred producers have been successful over time increasing the testicular size of bulls in all breeds. There are still breed differences that are acceptable and various lines within breeds will have differences in testicular size. Over my career, bull testicular size has crept up to the point where we are starting to see a detriment to fertility when yearlings get up over the 40 centimetre mark. There appears to be an upper limit and I believe research is needed to determine maximum limits in scrotal size. Dr. John Kastelic and Dr. Jacob Thundathil at the University of Calgary faculty of veterinary medicine have conducted research that found that nutrition, both in utero and especially early in life (before puberty), had a profound effect on testicular development. There was a definite increase in testicular size on bull calves on an adequate nutritional diet versus those on restricted intake. The adage of farmers saying you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t starve the head or testicles out of an animal is false. Bull calves on a poor nutritional diet might appear to have normal size heads, horns (if horned) and testicles but it is an optical illusion because if an animal is thin and stunted, those parts automatically seem bigger. So bull calves and their mothers must receive good nutrition early, especially in the calf â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first four months of life. This should work well as this is the same time cows need to be on a rising plane of nutrition to rebreed. Trying to compensate for early poor growth by overfeeding during or after puberty will have a detrimental effect on sperm production and testicular size. Too much fat in the scrotum alters the thermoregulatory effect. I have seen too many fat bulls with small scrotal size in varying degrees of testicular degeneration. These testicles have been too warm for too long. Some purebred producers definitely get their bulls too fat, which is why in my experience there seems to be a higher infertility rate with overfit show bulls. As back fat measurements rise, fertility goes down.

Energy and protein levels, as well as micro and macro trace minerals, are critical to testicular development. Proper balancing of the ration with careful attention to the calciumphosphorus ratio and adequate levels of micro minerals, such as copper, zinc and selenium, all play into the equation. The bottom line is growing cattle must receive a balanced mineral program throughout their lives. We sometimes fail to realize that bull calves grow so rapidly that they can outstrip their nutritional requirements. We also need to make sure that nutrition is not being stolen by internal parasites (worms) or lice. Many years ago it was reported that chelated minerals, because of their increased absorption, would help increase scrotal size. I found this claim unfounded. Your nutritionist needs to balance the ration for your class of cattle and the growth rate they are on and include the vitamins and minerals in this package. Age at puberty will affect scrotal size and some bull calves undergo rapid testicular growth from 11 to 15 months of age. Generally speaking, greater body weight leads to reduced age at puberty. Purebred breeders want early maturing bulls that can pass their semen tests and be sold at a younger age. Some genetic lines do not reach

puberty as early and as a result, testicular development is slower and they may not pass semen exams until around 15 months old. I have one large herd where we measure bulls at nine to 10 months of age to cull and then again about three months later at semen checking time (12 to 13 months). The growth patterns through puberty can be variable with all other factors being similar. Testicle growth over these three months can vary from a couple of centimetres to eight cm. Purebred producers should know the exact age of yearling bulls because even a month difference can have a huge difference on scrotal size. In the United States, they adjust scrotal measurements to one year of age. This may help with age discrepancies, but from what I have seen their estimates are low. This means many bulls bought from American producers have the adjusted scrotal size on an overly inflated scrotal size score. Purebred producers should be aware of scrotal size when selecting their herd sires and keep average scrotal size around the breed average or above and they will cull few bulls. As well, they must pay close attention to proper nutrition.

Purebred breeders have been successful in increasing testicular size of bulls but there is a point where larger scrotal size can be a detriment to fertility. | FILE PHOTO

Cormark Securities Inc. said LWI’s EBITDA from the special crops segment exceeded expectations by a wide margin and gave the company a buy recommendation. Overall EBITDA for the quarter was $165,000 because of $1.7 million in corporate expenses and $4.5 million in losses from the canola processing segment due to the Warden plant still being in the commissioning phase. Horn said the Pacific Coast Canola plant is on schedule to be operating at full capacity in the third quarter, perhaps in time for the harvest of the U.S. winter canola crop in June or July. Analysts wondered why AGT’s trade volumes were up a lot more than its margins. The company posted EBITDA of $13.6 million, which was 121 percent higher than the first quarter of 2012 but up only nine percent over the previous quarter. Chief operating officer Gaetan Bourassa said heavy snowfall in the first quarter disrupted the company’s red lentil shipping program. It missed some rail spots and was forced to use alternative transportation to get product to market, which cost an extra $10 per tonne. Al-Katib said asset use should improve with the expected return to normal pulse demand. The company has set a goal of achieving 67 percent asset use in 2013 and boosting it by three percent per year over the next five years. AGT is considering converting some of its underused processing capacity in Canada and Turkey into the food ingredient business. That would complement the company’s new food ingredient plant in Minot, North Dakota, which will produce commercial quantities of pulse proteins, starches and fibres in the second quarter of 2013. Al-Katib said the new food ingredient segment will stabilize revenues and profits because it is a diversification from the company’s traditional business of selling whole and split




Two of Canada’s biggest pulse processing firms posted strong sales results for the first quarter of 2013. Alliance Grain Traders Inc. (AGT) reported revenues of $276.4 million for the three months ended March 31, an increase of 40 percent over the same quarter a year ago. Legumex Walker Inc. (LWI) had sales of $83 million, up 26 percent from a year ago. Alliance credited the improved results to the long-awaited return to normalized pulse crop demand. “I’m encouraged by the fact that demand is coming back,” president Murad Al-Katib told investment analysts. Pulse exports from Canada for the quarter were up significantly over the same period a year ago. Pea sales increased 122 percent and lentil shipments were up 76 percent. It was the same story south of the border where pea exports increased 54 percent and lentils were up 59 percent. “Production shortfalls projected for India may represent a demand catalyst that we expect may continue through the second half of the year,” Al-Katib said in a news release. Legumex Walker was more inclined to attribute improved revenues to the company’s aggressive 2012 acquisition and building program, which saw it add three pulse processing companies to the mix and open its newly constructed canola processing plant in Warden, Washington. “This is the year that we begin to see the financial benefits of that (investment) in special crops, and then in the second half of the year we’ll start to see the benefit from canola,” said president Joel Horn. Analysts were impressed with Legumex Walker’s $6.4 million earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for the special crops segment of its business. That was an increase of 62 percent over the company’s EBITDA in the first quarter of 2012. One analyst asked the company how it was able to achieve such impressive margins, especially in what had been the challenging pea and lentil side of the business. “We try to pick our spots in the market, and that appears to have worked for us in the first quarter,” said chief financial officer David Carefoot.

pulses into overseas markets. “I can tell you that a pet food manufacturing company in New Jersey is not affected by the same macroeconomic effect of currency volatility in the rupee in India. We like that,” he said. Al-Katib stressed that AGT’s balance sheet is the envy of the pulse business because of new credit facilities amounting to $270 million. “This financing will become a major competitive advantage for

AGT in the coming two-year cycle because our competitors are largely globally family (owned), undercapitalized companies that will not have access to a balance sheet like ours,” he said. Cormark said Legumex Walker’s balance sheet is a concern, but the situation is improving as pulse market fundamentals strengthen and the company gets set to start commercial scale production at its canola plant in the second half of 2013.

Viterra upgrades Sask. facilities to speed handling Four locations | Projects to increase rail capacity and improve grain handling are scheduled for completion by the end of 2013 BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Viterra is spending $20 million to upgrade four grain terminals in Saskatchewan. Facility upgrades at White Star, Humboldt, Waldron and Ituna will result in increased rail capacity at all four locations and improvements in grain receiving and handling systems, said Kyle Jeworski, Viterraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president and chief executive officer for North America. Rail car spots at White Star, Waldron and Ituna will accommodate 50 hopper cars after the expansions. The Humboldt facility will have a 100-car spot. The upgrades will also see on-site storage capacity tripled to 27,000

tonnes at White Star and doubled to 31,500 tonnes at Humboldt. White Star is located 15 kilometres north of Prince Albert, Sask. Humboldt is 100 kilometres east of Saskatoon. Jeworski said the upgrades will result in improved receiving and shipping speeds and enhanced operational efficiencies. Handling times, throughput capacity and automation will be improved at each location. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always evaluating our infrastructure and â&#x20AC;Ś weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve identified that these are four very important locations for us that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to improve the efficiency at,â&#x20AC;? Jeworski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve advanced and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve progressed, farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; demands have increased so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to look at


these facilities and ask how do we match them (to farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; needs)?â&#x20AC;? All four expansions are slated for completion before the end of 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at various stages with the different projects, some â&#x20AC;Ś have just commenced â&#x20AC;Ś and others â&#x20AC;Ś weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just in the process of final contractor selection,â&#x20AC;? Jeworski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For us, the big thing is the completion dates and having everything operational for the next crop year.â&#x20AC;?

In a May 15 news release, the company said facility upgrades are consistent with Glencoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to increase Viterraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s projected capital expenditures in Canada. As part of its $6.1 billion deal to acquire Viterra, Glencore pledged to increase Viterraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s projected capital expenditures by more than $100 million over five years. Jeworski said additional enhancements to Viterraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s North American assets will be announced as they take place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our focus is obviously on expanding our North American business so we are evaluating our current asset network and also other opportunities within North America,â&#x20AC;? he said. Before acquiring Viterra, Glencore also pledged to:

â&#x20AC;˘ Maintain Viterraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head office in Regina and make it the headquarters for Glencoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s North American operations. â&#x20AC;˘ Invest an additional $8 million in research and development initiatives, over and above Viterraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s projected expenditures. â&#x20AC;˘ Contribute toward unspecified grain industry initiatives in Manitoba. â&#x20AC;˘ Work with the Saskatchewan government to develop a Global Institute for Food Security and contribute to the project should the province initiate it. Corporate restructuring is ongoing, and relocation of staff and positions from the Calgary office to Regina is expected to continue in the coming months.


Farm amalgamation enables management specialization


change too. By looking at farming in a new way, western Canadian producers have the opportunity to explore amalgamation and perhaps develop a competitive

odayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grain growers face a multitude of challenges, from increasing land values and machinery costs to labour shortages and the need to have a variety of specialized skill sets to effectively manage farming operations. Adapting to and managing these challenges as an individual- or family-run business is becoming increasingly difficult for farmers across the Prairies. As farms continue to grow, staying competitive requires thinking in a new way about farming and, in particular, the business model under which farms operate. An interesting model to consider is amalgamating with a number of other farmers to form a mega farm. The mega farm would then oversee all the farming operations, with participating farmers sharing ma nag e m e nt, e q u i p m e nt a n d labour. There are benefits to such a model, including reducing outputs in t e r m s o f ma c h i n e r y c o s t s a n d allowing for sharing of labour. If the members of the mega farm are spread out geographically, perhaps across the province, it also allows each member to diversify in that the member farms will grow different crops, have different crop rotations, and experience different growing conditions. But the biggest benefit is in the ability to strengthen overall management. Effectively managing a farming operation requires the individual grower to be skilled not just in farming but in marketing, operational issues, finance and human resources.

and they need to become more specialized if they are going to succeed. The game has changed and as a result business models need to


In sharing management, there is the opportunity to determine the roles required and establish the skill sets that are necessary to carry out those roles. The members of the mega farm can then be matched to the roles that suit their unique skill sets. This will improve success in the various areas of farm management and reduce the stress on each individual farmer. Setting up such a mega farm would have to be done properly to ensure that the structure maximizes tax benefits. Just as importantly, the variety of components the business w ill require â&#x20AC;&#x201D; capital and human resource planning, buying inputs, selling commodities, day-to-day operations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; must be identified, and the roles and job descriptions of the management team must be clearly defined. Farming is a strong and vibrant industry and it will continue to be so. Evolving with a different business model will help growers manage the challenges they now struggle with on their own. Amalgamation can also help address one of the biggest challenges on the western Canadian land base today â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the aging population. Many farm families do not have children who want to take over the farm once the parents retire, but the families might still want to maintain ownership of the land. To do that, they need a good rate of return. Renting the land to a mega farm that is able to reduce the cost of farming could provide that rate of return and allow families to keep the land in the family name. MNP has been working with the agriculture industry for more than 65 years. Through my own work with farmers, I know that amalgamation can be a challenging idea to entertain because operations have been run by individuals and families for so many years. But as farms grow, producers find themselves dealing in big business
