Soybeans could change landscape New varieties | DuPont Pioneer hopes earlier maturing varieties will help expand production BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Canada’s leading seed provider is releasing new soybean varieties it hopes will accelerate changes already happening to the prairie agricultural landscape. DuPont Pioneer plans to sell P001T34R and P002T04R this fall. The two varieties fall into the earliest category of the double zero maturity group for soybeans. “It’s a new class all by itself,” said Greg Stokke, business director of DuPont Pioneer’s Western Canada commercial unit. “There isn’t another soybean variety on the market today that has that low of a heat unit.” The new lines matured one to two days earlier than the earliest soybeans on the market in Pioneer’s Manitoba research trials last year

The new varieties of soybeans have low heat units, making them suitable for many regions. | FILE PHOTO and five to seven days earlier than Pioneer’s best material. Stokke believes DuPont’s new

offerings will greatly expand the region where soybeans can be grown in Western Canada, anticipating they w ill be planted as far nor th as Saskatoon. “I think it will open up several million acres,” he said. Kevin Elmy, a seed grower from Saltcoats, Sask., thinks Pioneer is overhyping the new varieties. “Can I get a wet blanket out and just kind of temper that a little?” said the owner of Friendly Acres Seed Farm Inc. Elmy said it would be an exciting development if the new varieties were true 001 or 002 soybeans, but he doubts that is the case. Elmy, who has been experimenting with soybeans on his farm since 1999 and growing them as a major part of his rotation since 2006, thinks Pioneer’s trial results were skewed by last year’s abnormally hot summer

that delivered 250 to 300 extra corn heat units than usual. Pioneer claims the new varieties are up to seven days earlier maturing than its 900Y61 variety, but Elmy said the variety is two to three weeks later than the Thunder Seed varieties he grows and sells: TH9002, TH33003R2Y and TH32004R2Y. “That only puts (Pioneer’s new varieties) 10 days behind what we have,” he said. Elmy estimates that Pioneer’s new offerings might add 100,000 acres of soybeans to Western Canada, but he doubts it will be the millions Stokke is anticipating. Dale Risula, special crops specialist with Saskatchewan Agriculture, thinks what Pioneer is putting on the market could be a major breakthrough. SEE NEW SOYBEANS, PAGE 2

New soybeans announced “It’s kind of exciting actually. I think that could open the door to a lot of new growers in the province,” he said. Farmers are interested in the crop because it is easy to grow, fits well into rotations, has a huge market for the oil and meal and offers the nitrogen fixing benefits of pulse crops. Based on Manitoba’s experience, Risula anticipates swift adoption of soybeans in Saskatchewan if seed companies continue to reduce time to maturity and the subsequent risk of frost damage. “It could grow up to a million acres really rapidly if this variety that they come out with does as they claim,” he said. Saskatchewan growers are clamouring to get their hands on a soybean variety that reduces the risk of fall frost damage. “Just from the meetings we’ve had with farmers over this past winter, the interest is skyrocketing,” said Risula. Stokke said Pioneer will release a new line of soybeans within the next few years that will be in the triple zero maturity group, which will be even better suited to western Canadian growing conditions. He is also excited about a new early-maturing corn hybrid in the pipeline that could add millions of acres of that crop to the mix. Saskatchewan agriculture minister Lyle Stewart is one farmer who intends to embrace the early-maturing soybean and corn varieties. “In future years, we’ll be growing both of those on our own farm, and I know my neighbours and probably the vast majority of the farmers in the province will at some point,” he said. Manitoba has been the early adopter of the two crops. Growers in that province planted 800,000 acres of soybeans last year and as of March 31, intended to seed 1.08 million acres this year, according to Statistics Canada. There was no official number for soybean acres in Saskatchewan, but Risula estimates farmers seeded 50,000 to 70,000 acres last year in the province’s southeast. Stokke said seed supply of the new soybean variety will likely be constrained next year, although that depends on what the yields are like this summer. “We’ve been anticipating strong demand on these varieties, so we have been building as much supply as we possibly can,” he said. DuPont has developed a statistical model based on the Manitoba experience to forecast how many acres of corn and soybeans could be planted in Western Canada in the next 10 to 15 years as earlier maturing lines hit the market. Stokke said the model is predicting

NEWS eight million acres of the two crops, but that is a conservative estimate based on releasing the varieties into the marketplace with no public awareness campaign. The forecast is also based on growers following one-in-three year or one-in-four year rotations, which is an unrealistic assumption. “Once you get into corn and beans, it’s usually every other year,” said Stokke. Elmy predicted that Saskatchewan farmers will grow three million acres of soybeans within three years, calling the crop a “no-brainer.” He has been averaging slightly below 30 bushels per acre on his farm near Yorkton, Sask., in addition to replenishing the soil with nitrogen. He said it will take a lot longer for corn to take off in the province because the corn he planted in midMay last year on fertile soybean ground contained 28 percent moisture despite receiving 300 more heat units than usual. So what crops are going to lose ground to corn and soybeans? Stokke thinks the newcomers could threaten canola in Manitoba’s Red River Valley, peas in southern Saskatchewan, lentils in west-central Saskatchewan and cereals across the Prairies. Risula said soybeans will continue usurping bean acres and provide stiff competition for canola. “Based on what I was hearing from a lot of the growers, it seemed like canola was the one they were wanting to replace,” he said. Rick White, general manager of the Canadian Canola Growers Association, doesn’t see corn and soybeans as big threats to the canola industry because they will be grown mostly in the far south of the Prairie region. “I don’t suppose that even these earlier maturing corn and soybean varieties will encroach too far north in the canola growing region,” he said. If they do, it will give canola growers two profitable crops to add to the rotation. “It’s good for farmers to have those options.”

Farmers earn record income in 2012: StatsCan report BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

assessment of the damage done to Canada. Canadian livestock sectors estimate the damage in price depression and reduced access to U.S. packing plants at $1 billion or more a year. Ritz said the American meat industry estimates that COOL costs it hundreds of millions of dollars a year. Many packing plants are running at less than capacity or have closed because Canadian animals are no longer available. Ritz said that despite American arguments about being in compliance, “we still feel they’re totally not in compliance with what the WTO ruling and the appeal process drove them to or instructed them (to do).” Agriculture parliamentary secretary Pierre Lemieux said in the House of Commons May 24 that Canada will not back down. “Our government will continue to aggressively defend the interests of our Canadian livestock producers and we will not stop until we succeed,” he said.

Canadian farmers earned record net farm income last year, even as production costs soared and program payments remained static, according to figures from Statistics Canada. Although it did not report net farm income in its May 23 report, the federal agency said total farm cash receipts in 2012 were $53.69 billion, almost seven percent higher than the 2011 total. Expenses were up almost six percent to $46.6 billion, creating an unofficial net farm income of slightly more than $7 billion. The increase in farm receipts was driven by a $3 billion increase in the value of cash receipts for crops, rising to $29.2 billion. Income in the livestock sector was relatively stable at less than $21 billion. Farm program payments fell slightly to $3.4 billion. “I would say there is not much surprising in that, given crop prices have been very solid in the past year,” said Canadian Federation of Agriculture president Ron Bonnett. “Livestock prices have recovered a bit, at least in beef, but we’ll see this year what the impact of the COOL (country-of-origin labelling) rules will be. That could lead to more softening.” The Statistics Canada repor t showed sharp increases in fertilizer and commercial feed costs last year. Meanwhile, the federal agency said the trend to record farm receipts last year spilled into the first quarter of 2013. Farm cash receipts in the first quarter of the year hit a new record of $15.4 billion, according to the agency. It was 7.5 percent higher than last year’s record level, driven mainly by higher crop receipts and in particular wheat prices and sales, according to Statistics Canada figures. Program payments were stable at $810 million with crop insurance payouts offsetting declines in AgriStability and AgriInvest payments. Statistics Canada suggested that the end of the CWB sales monopoly last year was part of the story as farmers took advantage of new sales opportunities to sell stored grain on the open market at current high prices. “The $1.1 billion increase in crop receipts was mainly the result of a rise in wheat receipts and an increase in the liquidation of deferred grain receipts,” it said. Wheat sales revenue was 52 percent higher and durum receipts were 65 percent higher than 2012 levels. The increases were “primarily the result of higher prices and the timing of funds received by producers,” said Statistics Canada. “As of Aug. 1, 2012 western producers have the option to market their wheat and barley on the open market.”

Ritz ready to fight over COOL Trade battle brewing | Canadian officials say American changes to labelling rules fall short BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Canada is talking tough after the United States failed to make major changes to its country-of-origin labelling rules by the May 23 deadline set by the World Trade Organization. A trade war across the 49th parallel could be looming. Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz told a May 23 news conference during a trade trip to Russia and Kazakhstan that Canada will retaliate once all WTO appeals have been settled. He said last minute changes made by American officials do not change the basic protectionism of U.S. rules. “We’re assessing all options,” said Ritz. “Certainly that is part of the next step. There is a process that takes time at the WTO, but we’re not going to step away at this point. We have no intention of backing off or backing down.” Ritz has suggested that tariffs targeting American imports could be worth up to $1 billion and will not necessarily target only agricultural products.

“If the Americans think this is a game of chicken, well the cliff ’s in front of them,” he said. “We will do everything in our power to make sure that they understand that both Canadian industry as well as American industry is totally rejecting what they have come forward with today.” Last year, following a challenge from Canada that was supported by Mexico, the WTO ruled that U.S. COOL rules were unacceptable protectionism and not simply consumer education as the U.S. claimed. The U.S. Department of Agriculture issued its first draft of changes this past winter and its final draft May 23. The USDA issued a statement May 23 proclaiming its tweaking of COOL regulations to be full compliance with international trade obligations. Its rules will require meat packers to list the origin of beef, pork and chicken in products sold in U.S. grocery stores. “USDA remains confident that these changes will improve the overall operation of the program and bring the mandatory COOL requirements into compliance with U.S.

international trade obligations,” U.S. agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack said in a statement. It included an endorsement from U.S. National Farmers Union president Roger Johnson. “We are very pleased that the USDA has decided to stand strong and keep COOL.” The Canadian Pork Council accused the U.S. of flouting the WTO judgment, calling the reaction shocking and appalling. The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association was equally critical. President Martin Unrau said the U.S. action was “extremely frustrating.” Both farm groups say they support Canadian threats of tariff retaliation. However, it could take many months to get to that stage. The Americans will report to a WTO compliance committee that they have adhered to the ruling. Canada and Mexico will object. The committee will eventually issue a ruling. The loser in that ruling will appeal. If Canada wins its case, it will have to go back to the WTO to ask for the right to retaliate and the monetary limit of the retaliation based on an







Railway shipping legislation expected to pass Final stages of approval | Despite criticism from shippers, Bill C-52 gains support from opposition parties BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

MPs are in the final stages of approving legislation that for the first time will give railway shipping customers the right to demand a service agreement with the carriers. Railways have opposed the legislation as unnecessary, preferring commercial agreements negotiated between both sides. The House of Commons started final debate on Bill C-52 last week and with all parties in favour, it will be approved within days and sent to the Senate for final debate and approval before Parliament rises in late June. Opposition transport critic Olivia Chow said in the Commons May 23 that while the legislation does not go far enough to protect shippers, New Democrats will support it as at least a start in correcting the market power imbalance between railways and shippers. “Flawed as the legislation is, we as New Democrats support the bill because it is better than nothing, but there is a lot of room for improvement,” she said Chow also called for legislation to more stringently regulate railway charges. “We also need a second piece of legislation that would provide a level playing field and deal with pricing,” she said. “How much should it really be? How much should it cost? What would be the upper and the lower range? We need to let the market dictate pricing, but because the market is completely skewed right now, there is no competition.” Despite criticism of the legislation, Liberals also told the Commons they will support it.

The Coalition of Rail Shippers will continue to propose amendments to a new bill that gives shipping customers the right to demand a service agreement with carriers. | FILE PHOTO With the government rushing during extended daily sittings to pass all bills on the agenda before Parliament adjourns for the summer in late June, Bill C-52 is on target to be approved soon and then go to the Senate for final debate and passage into law. At the Commons transport committee, the Coalition of Rail Shippers proposed six amendments to the bill to strengthen shipper rights and railway obligations but the Conservative majority rejected them. The coalition will propose the amendments again when the bill gets

to a Senate committee but the Conservative majority likely will reject the proposals again. During the May 23 Commons debate, Winnipeg Conservative Lawrence Toet noted that both shipper and railway amendment proposals w e re re j e c t e d — t h e s h i p p e r s because they wanted to make the legislation too specific and the railways because they wanted to water it down to the extent that it would be meaningless. “The shippers suggested some amendments that the committee ultimately judged, after careful con-

sideration, as unacceptable,” he argued. He cited two reasons. “First, many of the amendments were contrary to the approach to arbitration in Bill C-52, which would give the arbitrator broad discretion to impose the right service contract for a particular situation, in recognition of the fact that each situation is different and there is no one-size-fits-all solution,” said Toet. “Second, some of the shipper amendments were not possible because of inherent legal risks associated with the proposals, which in some cases would be unprecedented concepts in Canadian law.”

For the first time, the legislation allows shippers facing rail service problems the right to apply for Canadian Transportation Agency arbitration to have a service agreement imposed as long as they have tried and failed to negotiate a commercial agreement. If the railway fails to live up to the service level promised or imposed, fines of up to $100,000 for each infraction could be levied. The money would go to the government. Any damage payments directly to the aggrieved shipper would have to come from a court judgment.



Shatter tolerant canola undergoes final evaluation

Dupont Pioneer expands in West

Pod shattering | New variety would follow Viterra’s juncea canola shatter-tolerant line released this spring


DuPont Pioneer plans to introduce a new line of canola as early as next spring that it says can better withstand the strong winds that ravaged crops last harvest. The company’s non-genetically modified shatter tolerance trait is going through its final evaluation stage this summer. The trait is being tested in 30 product advancement trials and 25 product knowledge plots in Western Canada. It is the last phase of what is typically a 10-year process to develop a new hybrid. Greg Stokke, business director of Pioneer’s Western Canada commercial unit, said the line could reach the market next spring if it performs well in the trials and is subsequently registered. “If (it) yields like we think (it has) potential to, then we’ll come to market potentially next year,” he said. The trait is expected to allow grow-

ers to better straight cut their canola and greatly expand the window in which it can be swathed. “The problem today with canola is typically it is all ready to swath at the same time,” said Stokke. Rick White, general manager of the Canadian Canola Growers Association, expects strong demand for the new trait if it performs as billed. “This would be fairly high on the (wish) list because there can be substantial losses from shattering,” he said. Farmers often lose valuable seeds due to pod shattering during swathing, while the crop is lying in the swath or during combining. “There are seeds that are falling out all the time, so this could help increase yields,” said White. “There is shattering that occurs even in the standing crop with strong winds. We experienced that last year.” Losses can range from a few perc e nt o f t h e c ro p t o 5 0 p e rc e nt depending on weather conditions and how ripe it is when the damage


occurs. “I think all farmers would be interested in this, particularly if the shatter resistance is enough that farmers can straight combine standing canola,” said White. Viterra launched a juncea canola hybrid this spring that also boasts tolerance to pod shattering. White doesn’t know of any other products on the market with that trait. Stokke said the trait performed well at trial sites that were hit by the powerful harvest winds last summer. “This (variety) looked very, very good while the other ones you could see the shattering,” he said. The trait would initially be packaged with the Roundup Ready trait, but it could soon be paired with a

number of other traits the company has in the development pipeline. Stokke said Pioneer plans to start offering the LibertyLink herbicide tolerance system in its genetics as early as 2015. “It’s just another option for farmers to manage their weed control,” he said. The company is planning on a 2016 launch of its Optimum GLY canola, a new glyphosate tolerance trait that will give growers a broader window of application and allow them to use higher rates of the herbicide. Pioneer is maintaining its Clearfield herbicide tolerance program, while other companies are dropping it. “We don’t know what the future holds in terms of weed management,” said Stokke. White said new herbicide tolerant lines of canola are welcome. “It gives (farmers) agronomic options that they may not have had before and that could impact the area under which canola gets seeded,” he said.


The world’s leading supplier of plant genetics is strengthening its presence in Western Canada. DuPont Pioneer and DuPont Crop Protection opened a 613 sq. metre western Canadian office in Saskatoon last week staffed with 20 employees. “This office enables DuPont Pioneer to deliver more focused and defined market approaches in Western Canada, including agronomic support and services to increase growers’ productivity,” company president Ian Grant said in a news release. Greg Stokke, business director of Pioneer’s Western Canada commercial unit, said the company plans to more than double its western Canadian revenues over the next five years, which means expanding the workforce. “In research alone, we expect to add more than 40 new full-time positions, and that is more than doubling our on-the-ground head count in Western Canada,” he said.





Farmers catch up following delays CAMROSE BUREAU

Seeding may have got off to a slow start in Alberta because of snow, but it’s estimated that 70 percent was done in 10 days, and maybe even seven days in the Wetaskiwin area. “It happens that rapidly. It’s mind boggling,” said Barry Schultz, owner of Parkland Fertilizers. A combination of big equipment and more streamlined handling systems means many farmers were able to catch up quickly despite the slow start. “It seems like even when they said they were late starting, they were surprised they were done early,” said Schultz. Warm, moist soil has also meant seed emerged quickly, especially wheat and barley. “By my count, the crops are ahead.” Don Boles of Three Hills said he is 99.9 percent seeded, with the exception being where an energy company is digging up a pipeline. He said it’s the same situation across his region of central Alberta. “The area is essentially seeded,” said Boles, with farmers starting late and finishing early. “It was a real steady run.” Rain gave the crops a good boost, and Boles estimates spraying will be underway quickly. “The crops will be thriving from now on.” Jason Casselman of Dunvegan Ag Solutions said seeding in the central Peace is essentially complete. “We’re 99 percent done in this area. There are only one or two guys still picking up fertilizer,” said Casselman. Farmers in the Hines Creek and Cleardale area have a few more days, but seeding is generally finished from Spirit River to Eaglesham. “We started May 7 when we cracked open the fertilizer and went straight through to (May 26). There were no breaks in between. Unlike other parts of the province, the Peace River region has not had a good rain. However, crops have emerged well despite the dry conditions. SASKATCHEWAN

Farmers make progress SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Farmers continue to make steady progress on seeding with many reported to be well past the halfway mark and others nearing completion. Fields in some areas, however, are extremely wet and some will likely go unseeded. As of May 20, about 27 percent of the province’s crop had been planted, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s weekly crop report.

The period saw good seeding weather in most regions. Some regions continue to struggle with excess moisture. In the southeast, the Frobisher and Carnduff areas received about 50 millimetres of rain, enough to delay seeding progress and force growers to reassess plans. Other communities, including Quill Lake in the east-central region and Major in west-central Saskatchewan, received more than 25 mm of rain between May 14 and 20. As of last week, topsoil moisture on Saskatchewan farmland was reported as 14 percent surplus, 78 percent adequate and eight percent short. As of last week, seeding was furthest advanced in southwestern Saskatchewan and least advanced in the northeast, where very few acres went in before May 15.

Seeding nears completion

Forecast has a bit of everything


After a 10-day stretch of nearly perfect seeding conditions from mid-May to the end of the month, spring planting is nearing completion in Manitoba. For instance, growers in southwestern Manitoba are about 80 percent complete and a number of producers have finished seeding. A Manitoba Agriculture rep in the region said seeding conditions in the southwest have been idyllic this year compared to the extremely wet spring of 2011 and early seeding followed by cool weather last year. The only exception is the area close to the U.S. border, where a storm dumped 50 to 100 millimetres of rain on cropland in mid-May. As a result, growers in that area are only 50 percent complete. Crop pests are not yet a concern in the southwest. Diamondback moths and aster leafhopper populations are negligible compared to last year. Seeding conditions have also been favourable for producers near Dauphin. Seeding in the northwest region was 80 percent complete as of May 27. The cold weather in April and early May has been hard on winter wheat. Farmers are assessing winter wheat stands and plant vigour to determine if reseeding is necessary. Many fields in the Red River Valley received 50 to 75 mm of rain over the May long weekend. The precipitation delayed seeding for only a couple of days, which showed that the rain was needed to boost soil moisture. Seeding is nearing completion in the valley, but a Manitoba Agriculture rep said it’s hard to know if producers planted significantly fewer canola acres this year. Last year, early seeded canola yielded 20 bushels per acre or less in eastern Manitoba. As a result, growers in the region may have abandoned canola in favour of soybeans.

Storms ahead | U.S. forecaster calls for mixes of above, below normal BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Farmers could be holding onto their hats when inspecting fields this summer. “We think that the occurrences of thunderstorms and possibly severe weather is going to be higher than average,” said Jack Boston, expert senior meteorologist with AccuWeather. The forecaster predicts a summer of contrasts unfolding in the Prairies. “Part of the region is going to be cool and wet and the other part of the region is going to be warm and dry,” said Boston. He predicts above normal temperatures in southern Alberta, southern Saskatchewan and a portion of southwestern Manitoba. The building heat near the U.S. border will clash with cooler than normal temperatures in central and northern Saskatchewan and central Manitoba. That could lead to stormy weather for the area trapped between the contrasting weather systems, a region running from central Alberta and central Saskatchewan through to southern Manitoba, especially in June and July. Severe thunderstorm winds and large hail usually peak in July in the Prairies but can be common in June and August as well. Boston expects plenty of storms capable of causing extensive crop damage. “I wouldn’t be surprised to see a couple of tornadoes, either,” he said. Much of the hot area will see below normal precipitation while the cool area will experience above normal rainfall. Drew Lerner, president of World Weather Inc., doesn’t agree with AccuWeather’s summer forecast. He anticipates frequent precipitation throughout the Prairies with the exception of north and central Alberta and possibly northwestern Sas-

Analyst recommends selling before fall Sell old crop now | Feed barley buyers among those expecting lower prices SEEDERS RACING


After a worrisome slow start, U.S. Midwest farmers made exceptional progress in mid May, seeding 43 percent of the corn crop, or about 42 million acres in one week. Sowing progress is now close to the five year average.


This is an ideal time for farmers to sweep the bins clean and market every kernel they’ve got left. It’s also not a bad time to price new crop grain if farmers haven’t already done so. Prairie grain market analysts say cash prices are likely to fall to where the futures and basis say they will by the time crops are harvested. The old crop-new crop inversion, where old crop prices are much higher than new crop, isn’t telling lies. “Producers haven’t adjusted to what new crop values are being bid and offered now, especially with feedgrains,” said Jim Beusekom of Market Place Commodities in Lethbridge. “Most producers are saying if we have to sell that cheap, we’ll just wait till we get there. Some doubt that prices will drop that much.” Beusekom said farmers see old crop Lethbridge barley bids of $6.30 to $6.50 per bushel and new crop bids of less than $5 and are backing away from new crop pricing. However, he’s urging them to not expect new crop prices to rise to match old crop prices. “The market’s really implying that that’s what the value is. I really do think it’s going to drop that much,” said Beusekom. “I just don’t think producers have accepted that.” Greg Hagel of Quality Grain in Calgary was equally bearish about new crop prices. He said feedlots are chasing the old crop they need to survive the summer. However, they are then backing off and waiting for a flood of barley and maybe frost-damaged wheat that should arrive by late September. “As the Prairies continue seeding, it’s quite late, and I think we’re going to see a lot more barley acres than what StatsCan or anyone else expected (a few weeks ago),” said Hagel. “As people run out of time, they’ll seed barley and oats.” Feedlots know the phenomenon well from previous late-seeding years, so they are content to wait. Old crop, delivered Lethbridge bids for barley are about $285, but new crop bids are $225. Farmers aren’t jumping at $225, but there are lots of offers at $230 to $235. However, the buyers aren’t interested. “The feedlots just aren’t buying it,” said Hagel. “They’re looking at the market and saying, ‘why would we?’ They think a lot more barley is being put in the ground, and I agree with them.” While seeding progress remains behind the norm on the Prairies,

With all indications that new crop grain prices will be lower than current old crop prices, there is strong incentive to sell the remainder of the 2012 crop before harvest. | FILE PHOTO increadibly fast seeding in the U.S. Midwest in the last two weeks has put its numbers near normal, which has taken much of the pressure off the market. Crop development is late in many areas and significantly delayed in some parts such as eastern North

Dakota, but in most areas good weather in the week ending May 19 allowed progress to shoot ahead. “They seeded an area almost the size of Texas in a week,” said Brennan Turner, who operates prairie online crop marketplace FarmLead. “There’s a ton of acres going in very

fast.” That has added bearishness to the new crop outlook, Turner said, as analysts begin to switch from concerns about late seeding to comfort with the new crop situation. “The market sentiment now lies with (an expectation of ) normal

weather conditions, (which is bearish),” said Turner. However, the rapid pace of U.S. seeding, with about 42 million corn acres planted in one week, creates a possible future bullish surprise if the weather is not good at cr ucial moments. “There’s a significant amount of crop that’s going through the same stages at the same time,” said Turner. “If you have any adverse weather conditions at certain stages, there are a lot of potential bushels that could be lost.” Last year’s drought had a particularly powerful impact because it hit during the tasselling stage, the most critical time for corn yield potential. Hagel said a major U.S. summer weather problem is the best chance for turning new crop prices up. “The only thing that’s going to pop it is if the U.S. runs into troubles,” said Hagel. Beusekom agreed but said farmers shouldn’t bank on that happening. For now, they can take advantage of a phenomenon they’ve almost never seen before: they can sell all their old crop at high prices before the new crop is harvested. “We have good demand for almost any grain they want to sell us. There’s very few grains you can’t get a bid on today. The opportunity’s still there to sell your grain at still-peak prices,” he said. “Under the Canadian Wheat Board (monopoly), there were plenty of times you either were forced to push your milling wheat down into the feed market or forced to push it into the new year. You can sweep clean every crop you have, every bin you have. When is the last time that happened?”




American hay buyers might keep looking to Canada for supplies after building relationships with growers here in the last year. However, buyers want dense large square bales for efficient transportation, not the round bales common in Canada. | FILE PHOTO FEEDGRAIN | TRANSPORTATION

Hay growers may find regular customers in U.S. More hay moving south | A large demand for square bales could boost trade, even when drought isn’t a motivator BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Canadian hay might keep heading down the highway even after the effects of last year’s drought in the U.S. Midwest are just a memory, says one marketer. Connections made in 2012-13 have helped reveal a steady market that might fit some prairie farmers’ needs. “We have big buyers down in the States and they buy hay year in and year out,” said crop and input marketer Alan Johnston of Welwyn, Sask. “They can’t grow enough hay in the

U.S. to supply their market. They need hay all the time.” U.S. feedgrains such as corn have moved north into Western Canada for years, and smaller amounts of Canadian feedgrains have moved to U.S. markets. However, hay trade has been slight, mostly because of the product’s bulkiness and low price per pound. Some Canadian farmers near the border have sold hay bales to American farmers and buyers, but it was a sporadic and unorganized trade before last year. However, American buyers began

aggressively searching for new suppliers last year as the drought ravaged American feed crops such as corn and soybean meal, dried out pastures and reduced the hay crop. Saskatchewan and Manitoba had decent supplies of hay bales and good hay crops that could easily be tapped. U.S. government supports helped cover the costs, and bales started moving south, sometimes directly to farms but generally to marshalling yards. Johnston helped broker more than 1,000 truckloads of hay to the United States last year.

He said the trade can continue post-drought, but it will probably be more selective. U.S. hay brokers, facing big transportation bills, don’t want to take loads of 1,000 pound round bales because they are bulky and expensive to move. They want big square bales that weigh 1,600 to 1,700 lb., which isn’t what most prair ie far mers are equipped to produce. However, they might start making them if prices stay high. “I think there will be people growing to accommodate them,” said Johnston. “They have big, big demand for

large square bales. They can haul them cheaper and they get more of a load on.” That might make the feed situation tighter for prairie farmers, who are used to local hay always being available. Farmers are discovering this spring that hay won’t always be there, even if the previous summer produced an OK crop, he added. “The local guys finally woke up and said, ‘it’s been a long winter, I’m going to need some hay,’ and they started trying to buy local stuff,” he said. “I think every one of them thought they wouldn’t need it, but then we had such a long winter.”


Falling markets could surprise some growers’ bottom lines HEDGE ROW



ere are three sets of numbers that don’t add up for me: • Prairie farmers expect to be almost as profitable in 2013-14 as they were in 2012-13. • Farmers expect input prices to increase. • New crop hard red spring wheat futures prices are about $1.50 per bushel lower than they were for most of July to December 2012. Ca n o l a n e w c ro p Nov e m b e r futures are more than $1.50 per bu. l ow e r t ha n Ju l y 2 0 1 3 c a n o l a futures. Does that add up for you? Here’s a way of writing out that equation: Lower crop prices + higher

input costs = identical profitability. Hmmmm. Of course, the situation isn’t that simple. The first two findings come out of a prairie farmer survey by Prairie Research Associates, while the crop futures prices are publicly available. The survey numbers are amalgamations of answers from almost 1,000 farmers contacted by PRA. Forty-seven percent of farmers expect their profitability in 2013-14 to remain the same, while 25 percent expect it to increase and 25 percent to decrease. Fifty-nine percent of young farmers expect their profitability to increase, while only 22 percent of farmers older than 55 expect to see it grow. So how do reasonable market expectations of lower crop prices, an expectation for higher input costs and expectations of higher profitability come out of the same farmers and markets? Perhaps some farmers had crop wrecks or large production problems last year and reasonably expect a “normal” growing season this year. Maybe some have taken over lots more land and are going to produce

significantly more this year. And maybe some are learning lots about production methods every year and assume they will benefit from their growing expertise this year. All those factors could apply to young farmers, which is maybe why they’re so bullish about this growing season and the coming crop year. Or maybe they’re predicting another historical bull market, similar to the one that the Midwest drought caused last summer. I hope it’s not the latter because there aren’t too many reasons right now to be super-bullish about crop markets in the next few months. Here’s how Jim Beusekom of Market Place Commodities of Lethbridge summed it up for me last week: “The real question is, how far can the market fall? It’s not whether or not they’re going to fall. They’ve already gone down. But how much can they fall?” It’s natural for farmers to be bullish in spring. After all, they are throwing tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars into the ground in the form of

inputs that they hope will produce a crop that they can sell for a profit in a few months. So it’s natural and OK to expect to be profitable. But to expect profits equal to or greater than a year in which a historymaking rally made every crop highreturning? That’s odd. We live only once, and we all didn’t start at the same time. There are farmers who lived through the glory days of the 1970s bull market in grains. There are many who lived through the 19832005 bear market for grains. And there are some who just got into farming in the last decade or so, during a bull market for crops. Members of the latter group are the ones who told the survey that they are mostly expecting to make more money this year than last year. The market might soon school them about the dangers of undue optimism. It all depends what the bullish farmers did with their bullishness. If they just used it to feel good while they seeded, that’s great. But if they used it as the basis of

47 percent of growers



their finance, they might be doing a lot of financial revisions in a few months, hopefully not with a red pencil.

Flax industry confident seed supplies adequate Triffid elimination causes uncertainty | Some farmers worry prices will soar due to limited varieties next year BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

Concerns are growing about flax seed prices and availability next spring as Canada puts the finishing touches on efforts to rid the country of the genetically modified variety Triffid. However, Todd Hyra of SeCan said he doesn’t expect problems next year. “One of my goals is to make sure the market isn’t shorted next spring,” said Hyra, who is in charge of seed increase for both the new and the reconstituted flax varieties that meet the non-Triffid criteria. “Availability for 2014 should be good. We have more seed production in the ground right now than we’ve had in the past three or four years. In fact, going back in time, we have way more seed production now than we’ve had traditionally. That’s in anticipation of demand for nonTriffid seed next spring.” The industry efforts were required after traces of Triffid were found in flax shipments to Europe. The discovery closed the doors to that market and prompted steps to rid the flax supply of GM content. Hyra said SeCan will release two reconstituted varieties that were produced from the original stock dating back before the Triffid contamination. They are CDC Sorrel 14 and CDC Bethune 14, the benchmark variety to which all new varieties are compared. The two new varieties — CDC Sanctuary and CDC Glas — were developed before the Triffid crisis but were never released. SeCan also handles three eligible Ag Canada varieties: AC Prairie Grand, AC Prairie Blue and AC Hanley. As for rumours of high prices, Hyra said: “I haven’t heard of anything above $24 or $25 (per bushel), but when (flax) commodity prices move up to $17, you have to expect seed prices to rise accordingly. It’s logical that seed prices will rise.” Will Hill of the Flax Council of Canada said the target was to have enough seed for one million acres of flax when the industry initiated the program to produce enough nonTriffid seed for 2014. “Seeded acres have been going up again in the last two years, but we still expect to have enough certified seed for that one million acre target. We’ll know for sure when we get reports on

The Flax Council of Canada expects there will be enough certified flax seed to sow a million acres of the crop in 2015. | what’s going in the ground right now,” Hill said. “Responsible growers realize that using certified seed is the only way to deal with our market issue in Europe. As for high prices, I haven’t gotten any feedback yet on prices for the new varieties or the reconstituted varieties.” Hill said high commodity prices naturally force seed prices higher, but farmers receive a premium price when they sell back to the elevator. It would be bad news for flax growers and the entire industry if seed growers used this temporary situation to extract additional price premiums from farmers, he added. “So, in other words, we have a market level for certified seed. Pick a number. Any random number. Say 50 bucks or whatever. That’s where the certified seed should trade. We

wouldn’t want to see some seed growers trying to sell at 80 or 90 or 100. “There’s a natural concern when we have an extraordinary event that some people might take advantage of it. But that’s not in their own best interest nor in the best interest of the flax industry.” Canterra representative Rick Love said both varieties carried by his company have been available for awhile and were never affected by the Triffid controversy. “We have AC Prairie Thunder and AC Lightning. They both came out of the Agriculture and Agrifood Canada breeding program,” Love said. “Their breeding program hasn’t had a history or evidence of GM contamination in any of their plant materials.” Love said pedigreed seed supplies haven’t been abundant, which makes the forces of supply and

demand more obvious. That’s one factor preventing seed prices from falling. He said the other factor is that SeCan has spent a lot of money to ensure there will be a good supply of seed, and that cost ultimately has to be passed to commercial growers. “In our shop this year, we had a suggested retail price for certified flax seed in the neighborhood of $24.50 a bushel. That’s the same as last year. “Going forward to next year, unless there’s a major commodity price spike, I would be surprised if prices are different from that $24.50. I certainly would not expect the market to bear anything like $35 a bu. “And I doubt the prospect of those high prices would encourage pedigreed seed growers to increase production because they simply would not believe $35 is obtainable. They’d


really hear it from their customers.” Viterra rep Ryan Mccann hasn’t heard anything about seed shortages for 2014. “We’re in a good position to grow the market next year with all our flax varieties. We have no issues with shortages,” said Mccann. “We never did have a GM issue in our breeding program. We have one existing variety we launched three years ago. That’s NuLin VT50. It’s beginning to get traction now.” Mccann said Viterra works only with NuLin varieties, the trademark for high omega 3. Its varieties also have high iodine and higher oil compared to traditional varieties. “There are two new NuLin varieties we’re releasing for 2014. Those are WestLin 70 and WestLin 71. And of course, they’re both non-Triffid varieties.”


China returns to world wheat market as grain prices fall Country also thought to be refilling state wheat reserves and dealing with quality concerns in some regions BEIJING, China (Reuters) — China bought as much as 650,000 tonnes of U.S. wheat last week prompted by falling prices, a government thinktank said. This was the second large-scale purchase of U.S. wheat by the world’s top wheat producer this year, bringing its total buying to about 1.5 mil-

lion tonnes, said the China National Grain and Oils Information Centre (CNGOIC). The latest U.S. wheat was bought at $320 to $328 per tonne CIF (cost, insurance, freight) for delivery from July to September. The U.S. price was about 11.6 percent cheaper than Chinese wheat, said the centre.

Beijing is refilling its depleted state wheat reserves, while the quality of some state-owned wheat is also deteriorating. Traders said Sino grain, the state stockpiler that made the purchases, was looking for another two-three million tonnes. The U.S. Department of Agriculture confirmed May 24 that only 180,000

tonnes of U.S. soft red winter wheat were sold to China, but traders expected more to be announced. Chicago Board of Trade wheat fell to a more than one-month low last week following forecasts for rain in some U.S. growing areas. The CNGOIC reported last month that China bought 14 to 16 cargoes of

U.S. soft red winter wheat, which the USDA later confirmed. China expects its wheat harvest, due in June, to rise only 1.5 percent to 116.5 million tonnes after bad weather damaged crops in some areas, analysts said. Beijing’s 2013 minimum wheat purchase price is $370 per tonne.




Figuring out where loonie is going






ith a changing of the guard at the Bank of Canada, it is worth examining the outlooks for Canada’s currency and interest rates. Private analyst Prairie Crop Chart recently did a technical consideration of the loonie’s relationship to the U.S. dollar. It noted that the medium term upward trend of the Canadian dollar has stopped and its value recently fell below a support line associated with dips going back to 2009. If it continues to edge lower, there is the possibility that the loonie could significantly drop to a technical support line of about 85 cents US, said Prairie Crop Charts. That would have a big positive impact on the price of prairie crops and livestock. Prairie Crop Charts said there are lots of uncertainties in the global economy that could act as a catalyst for such a move. However, Canada’s major banks don’t see the loonie falling below 95 cents. CIBC’s monthly foreign exchange outlook published May 23 said it expected that the loonie would fall to 95 cents this year, but it is happening faster than the bank expected. Still, it expects “a soft landing for the loonie rather than an outright crash.” CIBC sees the loonie hitting 95 cents in the third quarter of the year and then climbing back toward 98 cents by early 2014. It sees parity by the third quarter of 2014, with the loonie edging above parity to about $1.02 by the end of that year. It said the recent weakness in the Canadian dollar is mostly due to U.S. dollar strength as that country posts slightly stronger growth rates and Japan’s central bank implements a strong stimulus program, which is weakening the yen. However, the CIBC says U.S. economic recovery by 2014 should increase Canadian exports and capital spending, causing the loonie to appreciate.

The actions of the Bank of Canada regarding interest rates have a big role in the value of the loonie. Longtime bank governor Mark Carney is leaving to become the head of the Bank of England, and his successor is Stephen Poloz. The Bank of Canada’s benchmark rate has been one percent since September 2010 in an attempt to fire up the economy. However, the low rate has also encouraged rising credit and a housing bubble that Carney has expressed a lot of concern about in the last year. The bank made it known that it would increase its rate if borrowing got out of hand. Carney’s message and new federal regulations regarding mortgages appear to have the problem under control. As a result, there is little reason now to raise rates. CIBC said that in Poloz’s previous role as head of Export Developm e nt Ca na d a, h e c o m p l a i n e d about the detrimental impact of a high dollar on exports. However, the bank doubts he will tailor his statements to “talk the dollar lower” now that he is the head of the Bank of Canada. However, it’s possible the bank will stop talking about the possible need to raise rates in the near term and move to a neutral stance. CIBC thinks improving employment levels in the United States might allow the Federal Reserve to raise rates by early 2015, with the Bank of Canada moving in tandem. Here are the foreign exchange out-

looks of some of the major Canadian banks. Scotiabank Economics sees the loonie falling to about 96 cents US in the current second quarter, rising to about 98 cents in the second half of the year and reaching parity by the second quarter of 2014. RBC sees the loonie falling to 95 cents in the third quarter, rising back to 97 cents by the first quarter of 2014 and then hitting 98 for the rest of that year. BMO Capital Markets does not see much of a drop this year with the loonie at 97 to 98 cents until the fourth quarter when it will move toward parity and stay above the U.S. dollar through 2014. But to note a contrarian, the Wall Street Journal’s Canada Real Time blog last week wrote that Clement Gignac, former chief economist at National Bank Financial, who won recognition for foreseeing the loonie’s rally in 2006-07, now thinks it could fall to 90 to 92 cents US in the next 12 to 18 months, with a chance at falling to the mid-80s in three to five years. Gignac, who is now chief economist at Industrial Alliance Inc., an insurer, thinks the U.S. economy is picking up steam while Canada’s slackens. He believes that the commodities boom, which helped fuel Canadian growth and keep the loonie strong, is ending. That will keep downward pressure on the loonie, Gignac said.

Weather threatens Russian harvest MOSCOW, Russia (Reuters) — Mixed weather in Russia is sustaining concerns over this year’s harvest prospects, the SovEcon consultancy said. A late spring accompanied by dry weather in some regions in May threatened Russia’s plans to return as the world’s No. 3 wheat exporter after last year’s drought, but there has not yet been any forecast downgrades. “C o n d i t i o n o f w i n t e r g r a i n s improved slightly in European Russia due to rains at the end of last week and in early of this week,” SovEcon said. “But taking into account actual


damage and the low level of moisture content in soil in many regions, we are still cautious on winter grain crop prospects.” SovEcon narrowed its 2013 grain crop forecast to 84 to 89 million tonnes from a previously expected 83 to 89 million tonnes. Rain was forecast for this week in areas that did not receive moisture last week, which should further improve the outlook for winter grains. Southern Federal District, the country’s main wheat export region,

usually starts the harvesting campaign in late June. Cool weather delaying Russia’s spring grain sowing campaign also adds uncertainty, it said. Russia plans to seed 74.9 million acres this spring, of which two thirds had been completed as of May 23. This is 5.7 million acres less than last year, the agriculture ministry said. The country has completed spring wheat seeding on 51 percent of the planned area. “The pace of wheat sowing is at record low,” SovEcon said.

Fed cattle mostly steady

Western Canadian fed cattle were mostly steady last week at strong levels with fed steers at $119.28 per hundredweight, down 20 cents, and heifers at $118.47, up 31 cents. The price has averaged above $119 per cwt. for four weeks, an exceptional run that is a first for the industry. However, prices have not yet exceeded the record set in March 2001 of $121.50. The Canadian market has held on well, even though the U.S. market peaked four weeks ago and has since slid $5. The Alberta-Nebraska cash-tocash spread has improved recently but is still weaker than the five-year average for May of -$7.43. The supply of market-ready animals for Western Canada is tight and cattle are being pulled forward. Most of the dressed trade was at $200-$201 per cwt. delivered. Sales for the week fell 34 percent to 9,455 head. The Alberta cash to futures basis weakened $2.44 to -$4.77. Weekly exports to May 11 fell to 8,638 head. Western Canadian weekly slaughter was 35,017 head, down five percent from last year. Carcass weights are falling as more calves go to market. The market will pay a premium for longer fed animals. The market will be watching to see how demand shapes up for the next holiday, Father’s Day, and for the rest of the early summer.

COWS STRONG Barbecue season and seasonally tight supply are supporting hamburger beef prices, which is supporting cow values. D1, D2 cows ranged $72-$85 to average $79.33 per cwt., up 13 cents. D3s ranged $64-$76 to average $70,

FEEDER STEERS down 17 cents. Rail grade cows ranged $151-$156 per cwt. Bulls were steady, averaging $88.35. Weekly western Canadian slaughter to May 18 fell three percent to 6,458. Weekly exports to May 11 fell 19 percent to 5,868.

FEEDER STEERS RISE Chicago feeder cattle futures for the week finished up 7.9 percent. It was their biggest weekly increase since the week ended May 3, 1996, when they rose 10.7 percent. In Canada, the cash steer average rose 78 cents per cwt. and heifers averaged five cents lower. Auction volumes are declining seasonally and at 18,684 head were 26 percent smaller than the previous week. However, that was up 35 percent over the same week last year. Weekly feeder exports to May 11 fell 51 percent to 4,843 head, mostly due to flood related travel restrictions on roads leading to the Manitoba-North Dakota border. Feeder exports year to date are up 84 percent over last year at the same time. New U.S. COOL regulations are causing market anxiety, and traders might be cautious. Cow-calf pairs sold at $1,250$1,850.

BEEF STRONGER The U.S. Choice cut-out value set a new record high at $221.37 May 23, up $2.60 from the previous week. Select cutout was $191.52, down $1.19. Canadian cutout for the week ending May 17 rose with AAA up $5.31 to $195.31 and AA up $5.05 to $189.20. Montreal wholesale for delivery this week was steady at $218-$219 per cwt.

WP LIVESTOCK REPORT U.S. pork HOGS Large stocks affect prices


Holding steady



Buying for the U.S. Memorial Day holiday wrapped up, but the seasonal tight supply helped prevent a serious price slide. An outbreak of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus in the U.S., a disease that affects only pigs, is not expected to hurt pork demand. The trade hopes that the strong price of beef will cause consumers to buy more pork. Stocks of U.S. pork in cold storage April 30 were record large, up almost six percent over last year at the same time. Iowa-southern Minnesota hogs traded at $68-$69 US per cwt. May 24 delivered, down from $70 May 17. The estimated pork cut-out value was $94.92 May 24, up from $93.48 May 17. Estimated U.S. slaughter to May 25 was 2.054 million, up from 2.030 million the previous week. Last year it was 2.07 million.

The Canadian Bison Association said Grade A bulls in the desirable weight range sold at prices up to $3.70 Cdn per pound hot hanging weight. Contracted animals sold at prices up to $3.75. Grade A heifers sold up to $3.60 with contracts to $3.65. Animals older than 30 months and those outside the desirable buyer specifications may be discounted. In the live market, quality 2012 bulls sold up to $2.32 per lb. and 2011s sold at $1.60. Heifers from 2012 sold up to $1.53 per lb and 2011s sold at $1.50.

LIGHT LAMBS STRONG Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported 900 sheep and lambs and 10 goats traded May 21. Light well-fed lambs sold strong. Heavy lambs and goats traded steady. Sheep sold barely steady to $5 cwt. lower.

Agricultural innovation requires public investment


anadian agriculture’s bright future has suddenly become murky with the announcement that the federal government will eliminate a minimum 350 jobs within the agriculture department, including a large number of researchers. The closure of research stations, job cuts and centralization caught many producer groups by surprise, even though agriculture minister Gerry Ritz has been telegraphing the government’s direction for years. The cuts just seemed too draconian to be true. That direction, in case it has missed anyone’s notice, is a far greater reliance on the private sector, including farmers themselves. With the claw back of business risk management programs in Growing Forward 2, at least producers had the promise of more “innovation” to bank on. But now, that too has been compromised. Lynn Jacobson, president of Wild Rose Agricultural Producers in Alberta, perhaps said it best when asked for his reaction after the announcements. “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.” Unsurprisingly, just as with Growing Forward 2, the government again did not consult with farm groups. Grain Growers of Canada and others have long argued that research needed more funding, and they had no opportunity to present their cases before the job cuts and the list of station closures were announced. It’s a long list, including nine former Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration offices and two Agriculture Canada research stations. The PFRA offices are in Dauphin and Beausejour, Man.; Melville, Watrous, North Battleford and Weyburn, Sask; and Westlock, Peace River and Red Deer, Alta. The research stations are in Onefour and Stavely, Alta., which have

apparently been underused, although largely due to past funding cuts. The Grassland Applied Technology Centre in Kamloops, B.C., will also close, along with a dairy program at Agassiz. Other programs are being centralized, such as the grasslands program moving to Swift Current, Sask. However, having agricultural research stations in many locations across the Prairies is important economically, as well as in terms of research. Meanwhile, many well-educated, welltrained people will leave the agriculture department. For now, they include 144 commerce officers, 79 scientists, 76 information technology specialists, 29 engineers, 14 biologists, five research managers and three procurement officers. In several ways, these cuts add insult to injury, coming on top of the job cuts that have already occurred at Environment Canada, another government department where research is a crucial part of assisting agriculture. Clearly, the focus is on switching responsibilities to the private sector, but private research is not always aligned with the needs of an economy. While private firms do their best to innovate — better seeds, better crop management products — they are not necessarily engaged in the pure, primary research needed to keep up with issues such as climate change. The country needs its own research that is not proprietary and leads to true innovation. The federal government must realize that innovation comes with investment, which largely means highly trained people. It must also keep its promises, such as those in Growing Forward 2. The agriculture industry is not only too large but too important to Canada’s economy to continue down this path of cutting services, jobs and research. What will agriculture in 2050 look like, if no pure research is being done now?

Conservatives look inside their own ranks with tough-on-crime policy NATIONAL VIEW



ith general crime rates falling across the land, the Conservative government’s tough-on-crime agenda may be running out of pockets of miscreants to target. By the way, crime rates in general were falling long before the avalanche of Conservative tough-oncrime, a bad-guy-behind-every-tree

crusade began but that’s just picky. Justice minister Rob Nicholson and public safety minister Vic Toews have done an admirable job of finding bad guys to target over the past few years — terrorists, illegal immigrants, child soldiers trying to defend themselves, fraudulent employment insurance claimants, the mentally ill judged ‘not guilty’ because of their illness among others. But eventually, most wells run dry. Thankfully, the government has found a new batch of potential bad guys (and gals) to target and unlike those shady characters in north end Toronto or Winnipeg or the hoods of Calgary, they more or less know where they work and live. In fact, the tough-on-crime government gave most of them well-paying,

long-term jobs. Welcome to the Senate. After two weeks of unrelenting criticism of senators Mike Duffy, Mac Harb and Patrick Brazeau for not knowing where they live and dinging taxpayers for the cost of their Ottawa digs (Brazeau in this sorry fiasco is the only one with a leg to stand on despite other legal problems), the Conservative government has decided to get tough. Yes, there was the small matter of senator Duffy getting a secret $90,000 payment from the prime minister’s then-chief of staff Nigel Wright to pay ineligible expenses after which he refused to co-operate with an audit trying to look at his expenses. Oh and yes, there is Saskatchewan senator Pamela Wallin, under inves-

tigation over how she managed to spend more than $300,000 on travel expenses. Both Duffy and Wallin have withdrawn from the Conservative caucus. So this week, the government has decided to bring in tough new rules to require senators to — gasp — provide receipts and such to justify travel claims (did I mention Duffy claiming per diem expenses while he was in Florida — an error by a staffer, or course, repaid by Wright). There will be no more honour system among honourable senators. The alternative, said government senate leader Marjory LeBreton — she of Brian Mulroney patronage days as an awarder and recipient — is possibly the demise of the Senate. “Canadians understand that our

Senate as it stands today must either change … or vanish,” she warned. But the problem for the Conservatives is that these are not miscreants from crime pockets of some big cities or illegal immigrants far from the seats and designer dresses of Parliament. These are not folks from the public housing shambles of Ottawa, or Vancouver, or Calgary. These are well-heeled Conservatives, selected by prime minister Stephen Harper because of their work for the party and their accomplishments. They were let loose w ith few restraints. Guess what happened? So the tough-on-crime (or at least tough-on-bad-judgment) crowd on Parliament Hill looks inward. It is about time.





BSE and the legacy of a national crisis

Public angry over conduct of senators



ost would agree that the discovery of BSE in Canada in May 2003 wasn’t really a food safety crisis, at least in this country. In retrospect, it was primarily a trade crisis. As domestic demand for beef shattered records in Canada that year, 35 countries, including the United States and Japan, overnight issued an embargo on Canadian cattle and beef. Half of Canada’s $7 billion beef industry was based on exports, and the embargo was a catastrophe. Despite billions in compensation, many farmers went under and livelihoods were destroyed. The BSE crisis was real to the cattle industry and a passing worry for Canadian consumers, but most importantly, it was a crisis that could have been prevented. For the world at large, the crisis began on what is now known as Black Wednesday, March 20, 1996, the day the British government admitted that there was a probable link between exposure to infected meat and variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (vCJD), the human variant of BSE. The admission resulted in the culling of millions of animals in an effort to control the disease. Unfortunately, this did not prevent the death of more than 200 people from vCJD. The British beef industry was experiencing a complete meltdown by the end of 1996, as more than 30,000 workers in the beef sector lost their jobs. Demand for beef products across Europe dropped by more than 35 percent.

The federal government didn’t act when it had the chance to avoid the BSE crisis in 2003. | FILE PHOTO In Canada, however, no immediate measures were taken, despite the fact that the first Canadian domestic case of BSE was detected in a British-born cow in 1993, three years before Black Wednesday. The only significant regulatory change in Canada before 2003 came in 1997 with a ban on the practice of rendering ruminants for cattle feed. However, feed containing ruminant material was still readily available on the market, and violations of the ban were reported. The post-May 20, 2003, era brought further policy changes. Regulators prohibited the sale or import for sale of food products containing specified risk material, such as skulls and brain tissue. The Canadian BSE surveillance

system was also established to test more cases. This decision was long overdue. Indeed, some argued that it was several years too late. Implementing such a policy earlier could have resulted in significant advances in detection and preventive technology. Diagnosis of BSE continues to be a challenge because the incubation period can last years without showing symptoms. There is virtually no way to detect the disease without examining brain tissue post mortem using neuropathological methods. Since 2003, we have discovered new methods to detect BSE in living cattle, but none are commercially available. Most damaging for the Canadian Food Inspection Agency was its

unfounded assumptions throughout the 2003 ordeal, which significantly affected its credibility. For example, the agency mentioned time and again that animals could not develop BSE younger than 30 months. In Japan, which has discovered more than 30 BSE cases since 2001 and where BSE testing is compulsory, two of the country’s cases were in 21-month-old and 23-month-old animals. The CFIA seemed concerned only about the politics of food safety, which severely limited its understanding of the scope of the crisis that was unfolding. Food safety, after all, is first and foremost a public health issue. Looking back a decade later, it is reassuring to see that the CFIA has matured into a learning, open organization that is still committed to evidence-based rigour. Looking at food safety from a scientific perspective, the regulator has shown it can proactively balance the economics of food safety with the concerns that modern Canadian consumers have regarding food systems in general. The 2003 BSE crisis made the federal regulator more efficiently attuned with the realities of modern food safety practices. However, the XL Foods scandal that began in September 2012 shows there is still room for improvement.

Avoid the pitfalls of farmer-owned businesses HURSH ON AG



ome farmer-owned valueadded businesses are major success stories. Others have been spectacular failures. According to 2011 Nuffield Scholar Kelvin Meadows, success or failure isn’t entirely tied to the strength of the business idea. It depends to a large extent on governance and how business decisions are made. Unfortunately, as farmers we have some quirks that can get in the way of business success beyond the farmgate. Meadows and his wife, Shelley, were outstanding young farmers for Saskatchewan in 1998. They now live

in Moose Jaw and pursue business interests such as farmer-owned Avena Foods in Regina, which produces whole grain oat products for the celiac market. During the extensive travelling that comes with being chosen as a Nuffield Scholar, Kelvin researched and interviewed 23 enterprises from Engl a n d , Wa l e s, I re l a n d , F r a n c e, Ukraine, the northern United States and Western Canada. He wanted to determine the attributes of successful farmer-owned value chains with an emphasis on governance. His research shows that many farmer-initiated ventures don’t invest in a formal feasibility study and don’t have a comprehensive business plan. Another consistent failure was a lack of documentation and record keeping in the early stages. That can lead to subsequent friction at the board table when everyone has their own interpretations and recollections of past decisions. According to Meadows, companies generally succeed because they have

a champion. In many cases, this will be the chief executive officer. Hiring the wrong CEO can be fatal. If a company is undercapitalized, the directors may be unwilling to pay the price necessary to get the best person for the job. Two important items are often overlooked by inexperienced boards hiring a CEO: contract length and terms of dismissal. Most companies will have different CEO needs during the life of the business. Meadows said it was disheartening to see the number of struggling or failed companies who admitted putting themselves in a negative cash position by choosing to ignore the business plan and moving forward with building a facility even though they had not raised the required funds. As well, struggling companies consistently waited until their cash reserves were depleted and lenders were knocking at the door before approaching shareholders for additional capital. Businesses that are farmer or community-owned typically want facili-

ties in their local communities. It’s important to pick a site that’s a good location for long-term viability, not just the site that supports community development. Is the steering committee or the board of directors comprised entirely of farmers? If so, you may want to consider identifying other people who can bring a different skill set and point of view to the table. Meadows also said it’s a distinct advantage to have both genders on the board. “Companies that could not define their market struggled and were eventually sold or went out of business,” Meadows wrote. “They could not create enough margin to operate their facility while continuing to pay competitive prices to their suppliers.” It’s natural and healthy for farmers to team up to pursue value added opportunities. Meadows’ report is a good read for anyone heading down that road. Kevin Hursh is an agricultural journalist, consultant and farmer. He can be reached by e-mail at




aul Yanko, our web editor, poked his head around my office doorway one morning last week and, without preamble, asked this question. “What if I rented a car for $5,000, and then charged the company mileage for my trip? Do you think I’d get fired?” What if I approved that double expense? Would I get fired? Goodness, I hope so. Paul didn’t have to explain why he was sarcastically asking that question. The Senate scandal was raging and at this newspaper, as at papers across the country, it was all the talk. See, senators, when you run a business (or a country), you keep track of expenses and make sure they are reasonable ($5,000 for a rental car is a bit much) and fair (charging on top of that for mileage would be an “invalid expense claim”). I’m no accountant, believe me, but even I understand this concept. Why are senators seemingly unable to grasp it? Should they even be in the Senate if they don’t understand these basics? And furthermore, why is no one really keeping track on a regular basis? If our business or your farm ran things this way, we’d all be bankrupt. Instead, senators are able to rack up $90,000 plus in living expenses on houses they are not living in, and hundreds of thousands in travel expenses, which really seems a little pricey. It’s not one or two senators performing these feats of creative accounting, either. There are at least four under the auditor’s microscope now, and Pana Merchant of Saskatchewan is not answering any questions about husband Tony Merchant’s crazy off-shore trust, of which she is a beneficiary. That makes five. These shenanigans have likely been going on for a long time — as in decades, not years — because an unaccountable institution breeds entitlement and contempt for its citizenry, or at least its money, and that hasn’t changed since time began. The arrogance of these senators is breathtaking and the heretofore I-can’t-see-you approach of the government unbelievable. It’s amazing Canada’s economy is doing relatively well, considering no one seems to be looking at the books with any real scrutiny.

Re: ‘Biotechnology opposition off base’, WP May 2 op-ed. My childhood was spent pitching thousands of alfalfa hay bales. Alfalfa farming was the family income. It’s time for me to present an opinion that sheds light on medicago sativa. I am not opposed to enhanced seed innovation for annuals because the life cycle of the plant is aggressively geared for a single effort to produce a crop of whatever. I do strongly hesitate and am opposed to the biotechnology focus on modifying one of the most power-

ful nitrogen-fixers of all legumes. A well-managed mature crop of alfalfa can extract 240 pounds of nitrogen per acre from the atmosphere in a growing season. Alfalfa cannot be grown in a hardpan or an underlying rock layer. This perennial legume needs a deep soil because of its massive root system. No amount of genetic innovation can change the sedimentary geology nor change the physiographic region of where alfalfa can best grow. A root depth of 20 to 30 feet is average with exceptions of more than 100 feet. This deep rooting ability is the source of its nutritional power. Alfalfa needs a deep mineral rich

subsoil which has not been depleted, hence the iceberg root system which takes many years to develop. It is certainly not a rotational crop. Harvesting alfalfa before the flowering state would inhibit its nutritional power. Alfalfa’s core mineral is iron, and it is also an excellent source of phosphorus, potassium and magnesium. These components are optimum when the plant is at bloom and before seeds are developed. Growing a good crop of alfalfa is a long-term strategy. Managing the first initial seeding with a shade cover crop such as oats is crucial for establishing a healthy root system. The allelochemics of this plant make it relatively drought tolerant

while sheltering other plants during dry spells. As a trap crop, it draws lygus bugs away from cotton and is an excellent activator for composting. The racehorse stables required the high nutritional value from the hay our family produced. To present this plant as a new enhanced performer because of the innovations of agribiotech applications, in my opinion, is a well-calculated myth. Passing off this perennial as a new GM crop with the benefits of an annual is my take on what is not being reported. I’ll plainly suggest this is a plant to be left alone as is.

THREAT TO MEDICARE To the Editor: Why are people not more concerned about the push of various groups and individuals for more privatization of our precious medicare? After (former prime minister Paul) Martin allowed the first private clinic, they have proliferated at an alarming rate. This does nothing to make the cost of medical care more affordable and only adds dissatisfaction because of the shortage of doctors who are willing to work under the allowed system and the long waiting periods involved. Then the question remains: why are the medical practitioners, who are duly licensed by the College of Physicians and Surgeons, so accepting of Big Pharma’s manufacturing of the diseases to fit the latest untested whiz pill they have dreamed up — all in the search for ever larger profits?

Welcome to corporate Canada and Saskatchewan, where the grain trade has gone from farmer-owned wheat pools and the Canadian Wheat Board to shareholder-controlled multinational corporations including Glencore, Cargill, Richardson

OPINION and (Archer Daniels) Midland. Shareholder and state-owned corporations from France, Germany, Australia, India and China along with Potash Corp. and Cameco are raping Mother Earth of resources. Canada’s mining corporations in El Salvador, Colombia, India and Africa are described as very disrespectful of workers’ human rights. (Prime minister Stephen) Harper’s government has gutted environmental regulations so corporations are unrestricted in pursuit of wealth. (Premier Brad) Wall’s Saskatchewan government has hired a wealthy American corporation to overhaul our health care, social services and education. Its lean — mean — scheme is costly to taxpayers and workers’ rights. (It) has taken crown profits and privatized profit-making assets. Harper has cut PFRA funding and Wall is scheming to privatize the 52

community pastures with a complete disregard shown for any community initiative to save them. Noam Chomsky and other knowledgeable writers warn that rights obtained in 1215 when people forced King John to sign the Magna Carta and Charter of the Forest, which protected the commons, society’s source of survival, “are being shredded before our eyes.” Corporations see the commons as commodities for privatization. Rights guaranteed by habeas corpus in 1679, safeguarding our liberty, are dismantled. Investor rights regime considers those wishing to preserve communities as criminals. Business encourages citizens to consume unnecessary commodities. Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World predicted a people consumed with boundless credit and cheap goods. George Orwell’s 1984 predicted a

world of fear, permanent war and non-negotiating nations dependent on military powers. Sound familiar? Joan Bell, Saskatoon, Sask.

PST REBELLION NEW EMPEROR To the Editor: To the Editor: Now that the corporate controlled media has their Liberal darling, we can expect them to adorn him with the robes of an emperor in preparation for anointing him as ruler of the domain after the 2015 federal election. Those who control the levers of power in Canada are very clever at deceiving voters into believing that they vote for change. In my view, the only difference between the two

The people of Manitoba are rebelling the hike of PST. A much better and more acceptable method of (taxation) would be a small percentage increase on a personal income basis. Higher incomes/lower incomes would pay accordingly, but not at the expense of everybody and especially the low income earners, as the PST is an all inclusive tax. This type of heavy-handed action by the (premier Greg) Selinger gov-

ernment is symbolic of recent arrogant action by Ottawa that circumvented and flouted the existing laws that contributed to the demise of the former Canadian Wheat Board. The comparison is unmistakable and obvious. Yet, as reported in the Winnip eg Free Press ( June 13/ 2011), premier Selinger personally launched a campaign to save the CWB, leaving me and many others to believe that he was also perturbed and aware that lawful procedures were being put aside and ignored. This unethical action further supports my personal view that there are two sets of laws in Canada: one for the general public and one for government to disregard when they desire.

When asked to make a pledge SPIRITUAL VIGNETTES



local church board member was visiting several households, budget in hand, asking people to make a financial pledge to the local church. Often he heard, “why does it always cost so much?” In response, this man told about his son James. He told about how excited he and his wife were with the coming of their first child. “Things weren’t easy then,” he recalled. “My wife and I started with a bunch of dreams and little else…. Right from the time we knew our baby was coming, he began to cost us. There were bills for his mother’s checkups and the delivery. He needed many things. Later, we bought his hockey equipment, paid for him to go to hockey camp … and braces for his teeth, and glasses. As you know, nothing comes cheap.” The church visitor paused for a moment before he started talking about his boy registering at university, how proud they were and how anxious to do what little they could to help him. “Then, when Jim was in his last year on campus, he went to a doctor to see about his headaches and blurred vision. They ran a few tests and found he had an inoperable tumour. Our Jim died last year. And that boy hasn’t cost us a cent since his funeral.” He looked his host square in the eye and said, “that’s the difference between having something that is living and something that is dead. I find it is the same with the church. If it’s alive and growing, sure it is going to cost us. It is going to cost in terms of dollars, in terms of our time and in terms of our commitment. It’s going to cost because it is alive. But, my God, it’s terrible if it becomes a sad memory from the past.”

NWMP history closely tied to prairie settlement 140th anniversary marked last week | Formation of North West Mounted Police part of national policy to settle the West SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Some of the first ranchers and homesteaders in Western Canada were former North West Mounted Police. The history of the police force coincides with the history of settlement on the Prairies. The Mounties came west before most European settlers did. May 23 marked the official day 140 years ago in 1873 when the Dominion Parliament created the police force. Continental ambitions largely dominated the agenda of the govern-



ment of the day, under the leadership of Canada’s first prime minister, Sir John A. MacDonald. Canada had acquired Rupert’s Land in the 1870s, comprising present day Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. “They realized that if the United States was continental, then Canada had to be continental too or we would be swallowed up if we did not occupy our west,” said history professor Bill Waiser of the University of Saskatchewan. The author of 15 books about Canadian history, Waiser said the main

purpose for western occupation was for agricultural settlement. “There was the belief that settlement was going to proceed at a rapid pace and they had great expectations for the region. They’re not talking about tens of thousands. They’re talking about millions of people coming to Western Canada,” he said. Treaties with First Nations were being established along with a survey system to homestead the land. A transcontinental railway was underway to take people and goods west. “The police are part of what are col-

lectively called national policies,” he said. “The police were meant to bring law and order to Western Canada to ensure that it was a peaceful, orderly frontier.” Historical records indicate the force was recruiting men between the ages of 18 and 40, of sound constitution, able to ride, active, able-bodied and of good character. The pay was set at 75 cents per day for sub-constables and $1 for constables. The men were also required to be able to read and write. Waiser said the distinctive red serge

was deliberate because it distinguished the new force from the blue uniformed American cavalry. The first troops, totalling 150 men, were sent west over the Dawson Route in the autumn of 1873. They reached the Red River in late October and proceeded to Lower Fort Garry, 30 kilometres down river from Winnipeg. Another 150 men met up with the first group at the boundary settlement of Fort Dufferin in the spring of 1874. Together they began “the long march” west from Manitoba to present day southern Alber ta. The recruits battled cold weather, fatigue, disease, lack of water and dying horses along the way. From the outset, the march was designed to mark Canada’s southern most boundaries at the 49th parallel. “They deliberately take a route that is parallel to the international border. That’s symbolic. They are taking possession of this region on behalf of Canada and they are asserting Canadian sovereignty,” said Waiser. The North West Mounted Police performed a variety of functions and roles : conducting patrols, assisting incoming settlers, delivering mail, taking the census, making arrests and acting as judges during trials. “In the pioneer western settlement phase, when the homesteaders are coming in, it’s often the Mountie that was the face of the government on the frontier,” Waiser said.

U.S. farmers warned on debt CHICAGO, Ill. Reuters) — U.S. grain farmers have enjoyed a rare combination of soaring prices and land values since 2009 but if incomes dip as expected, they should be careful not to fall into the trap of borrowing against inflated land values, the Kansas City Federal Reserve said in a report. “In 2013, historically high farm incomes are projected to keep U.S. farm debt and leverage low. Yet longer-term projections suggest that farm incomes could fall dramatically in 2014,” the study, entitled The Wealth Effect in U.S. Agriculture, said. “If agriculture’s historical wealth effect holds true, farm enterprises might use existing wealth to finance and smooth investment spending, sowing the seeds for another round of debt accumulation.” The overall wealth effect of the present boom is a warning sign, the authors say: farmers tend to accumulate more debt when wealth levels are high. “Today, an increase in farm debt may signal the beginning of another turning point in farm debt and leverage. After rising less than one percent annually since 2008, farm debt outstanding at commercial banks rose roughly five percent in the fourth quarter of 2012 for both real estate and non-real-estate debt,” the report stated.





Forage research to suffer following Ag Canada cuts Consolidation of resources | Industry officials say closure of research facilities is regrettable BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Forage and pasture research seems to have taken a disproportionate hit in recently announced research program cuts by Agriculture Canada, say some involved in forage and grazing. The department recently announced plans to close the Grassland Applied Technology Centre in Kamloops, B.C., close the research facilities at Onefour and Stavely, Alta., transfer beef grazing systems work from Brandon to Lacombe, Alta., and consolidate rangeland activity research in Swift Current, Sask. Nine former Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration offices across the Prairies, which provided additional support for range and grassland, will also close. “It seems as though there’s a bit of a target that’s going toward range and forage research, in the fact that it’s the facilities at Stavely, Onefour and Kamloops all had that focus,” said Alberta Forage Industry Network chair Don McLennan of Medicine Hat. He said valuable research into forage, rangeland management and livestock genetics has been done at all three locations, although Stavely and Onefour may have been underused in recent years because of earlier staff reductions. Rich Smith, executive director of Alberta Beef Producers, concurred. “Stavely and Onefour were not being used to their full potential as stations, so it’s hard for us to … suggest that they needed to stay,” said Smith. “That’s another symptom of a situation where you have a declining number of researchers, which then leads you to having less work being done at a station, which then you see the station isn’t being used to its full potential.” Smith said forage and grasslands research has been neglected for some time, but beef research at Lacombe is serving beef producers well. “Having a position come from Brandon to Lacombe to work on forages will be a benefit for us,” Smith said. Reynold Bergen, science director for the Beef Cattle Research Council, said Manitoba will regret the loss of its beef research scientist, but it will strengthen the Lacombe team. He said the sites targeted for closure were underused and understaffed. “Hopefully by sacrificing those sites, they’ll be able to avoid making bigger cuts at more central locations down the road,” he said, while acknowledging that will be cold comfort for those at sites that will shut down. “We’ve been encouraging Ag Canada to increase the capacity rather than trim it back, so any loss of capacity is obviously regrettable.” Staffing for all research projects will continue to be an issue, said McLennan, who worries cuts may be a step toward further research capacity loss. “If (this is) a step in the process, one step where they shut some stations down and then not support the research in the existing ones that are

left, so that there’s another step down the road where they’ll make another cut, that’s a problem.” Doug Wray of the Canadian Forage and Grasslands Association said his group sent a letter to federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz several months ago expressing concern about forage research funding and succession planning for researchers. Wray said the long-term nature of forage research and lower potential profits compared to cereals research makes it less attractive for private

partnership research agreements. “In the pasture game, particularly, and a lot of hay acres too, are lower input dynamics, so there isn’t the opportunity for somebody to make a dollar on it.” In contrast, private companies have developed vast research networks for cereals, canola, corn and other crops, said Wray. “It perhaps falls to the government to get involved a little more on (the forage and grassland) side. We think there’s a public benefit from forage and grasslands, in terms of environ-

mental goods and services, biodiversity, clean air, clean water, less erosion, all those kinds of things, that maybe warrants public investment in their management.” Wray said the beef industry realizes the importance of forage and grasslands research and has increased its funding for it. Bergen concurred. And there is some merit in the idea of concentrating resources at one location, such as Swift Current, rather than understaffing facilities over a wider area, both said. Wray said vision is needed in forage

and grassland research, and that does not appear to be the current federal focus. “You can’t shut down a research station for five years and then start it up again. There’s a long-term continuity thing there,” he said. “Governments are kind of guilty of chasing the latest rabbit that runs by, and short-term thinking, and we’re encouraging them to take the longer view on this one and recognize the value of just staying with it, being patient and persistent, and getting good people in place.”

Farm debt climbs to new record Consolidation a key factor | Farm debt in Canada has tripled since 1994 BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

For the 20th consecutive year, Canadian farm debt has hit a new record as farm leaders and bankers warn about the vulnerability of the sector when interest rates rise. According to Statistics Canada farm debt totals published May 23, Canadian farm debt last year climbed more than six percent, $4 billion, to $72.2 billion. Last year’s almost-record increase came as net farm income totalled more than $7 billion for the first time.

And figures show that borrowing against unsold crops under the advance payment program has fallen by half over the past five years to less than $1 billion. “I guess I would have thought that with income levels as they were, there would have been some pay down,” Canadian Federation of Agriculture president Ron Bonnet said May 27 from his northern Ontario farm. He speculated that increased debt came from borrowing to finance farm consolidation. The asset value of farms increased more than 10 percent last year to

$360 billion, according to the federal agency. Bonnett noted that debt servicing is paid for from cash flow, not from growing asset values. Last year, debtservicing costs increased to almost $2.5 billion despite record-low interest rates. “We always tell farmers that they have to be very cautious about debt because it is very interest rate sensitive,” he said. Since 1994 when farm debt began to rise after a decade of double-digit interest rates and relatively stable debt levels, farm debt in Canada has more than tripled. Meanwhile, with a farm economy usually calculated to be 10 times Canada’s, farm debt in the United States is $230 billion, just three times the Canadian total. Bonnett said that largely reflects farm subsidies under the U.S. farm bill. “While a lot of our farmers were going under, money kept flowing under the farm bill.” The CFA president said he does not consider farm debt levels a crisis. “But I think it does put a yellow flag up that we have to be cautious.” Lenders typically consider growing farm debt a sign of a healthy and optimistic industry but even some bankers offered a cautionary note during a recent Parliament Hill appearance. Stacey Schrof, manager of agriculture for TD Canada Trust, told the Senate agriculture committee that much of the optimism lenders see in the agricultural sector now is driven by high commodity prices and record low interest rates. “I am concerned that we have been in the low interest-rate environment for quite some time,” she said. “People get used to these rates and think they will stay forever. The responsibility of a financial institution is to educate our clients: can the operation sustain the impact of a five percent interest rate or a seven percent interest rate. What does that do to the bottom line?” David Rinneard, director of agriculture and agribusiness for BMO, echoed the concern. “Without question, debt is escalating and will continue to escalate in the sector,” he told Senators. “In many respects it has been predicated on a very low-interest-rate environment. I remind people when I can that it was just six years ago that interest rates were twice as high as they are today.” He said many clients are shocked at the implication. “If you ask anybody, regardless of the industry they are in, whether they can tolerate an interest rate that is twice as high as they are paying today, the response more often than not is ‘no.’” He said BMO advice to clients is to prepare for interest rate fluctuations by hedging interest rate impacts. “The problem, as with any business, is that if every dollar you earn is earmarked for debt service, then there is little latitude whatsoever for experimentation.” According to the Statistics Canada calculations, chartered banks last year held more that one-third of farm debt, followed by Farm Credit Canada and the federal government and then credit unions with more than $11.5 billion of the debt.





Food makers told to specialize, be innovative to compete Processors squeezed by high currency | Catering to niche markets suggested BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

The sudden rise of the Canadian dollar has up-ended the economics of processing food in Canada and importing it from the United States, says George Morris Centre analyst Kevin Grier. It has left food processors in the position of needing to either achieve world-class processing efficiency with large operations or offer specialized products with excellent service and support that giant U.S. competitors won’t offer. “Doing the same thing as the U.S. but smaller is not a winning strategy,” Grier said in a webinar for analysts and industry players. “You can be big and go global. You can be nimble-innovative. And you can be … a bit of all of that.” Canadian food companies found themselves facing both cost and revenue shocks when the loonie surged from 70 cents to parity with the U.S. dollar in the late-2000s. In 10 years, Canadian food processing wages changed from $1 less per hour than wages in the U.S. to $3 more per hour. At the same time, prices for goods exported to the U.S. dropped as the relative value of the American currency fell. That cost-price squeeze forced Canadian food processing plants to close and either move to the U.S. or be replaced by other providers in the U.S.

Grier said the dollar isn’t likely to fall back to pre-2006 levels any time soon, so Canadian food processors need to figure out a way to survive with the new economic situation. Becoming globally competitive in costs is one approach that holds promise, he said. Maple Leaf Foods is doing that, and already has operations that are world-class, such as the Brandon hog slaughter plant and the expanded and improved meat plant in Winnipeg. Another approach is to produce specialized products for markets that are too small for the giant American food processing companies. They often aren’t willing to run special lines of product for local markets, don’t like dealing with different labelling requirements and don’t want to alter the formulas of their products to meet local tastes. Those are areas smaller Canadian firms are aggressively servicing. “This is how they’re surviving and thriving in this global marketplace in this environment of a par dollar,” said Grier.

Food industry touts traceability work

Food prices rise worldwide

Recall plan in works | Retailer says meat sector sometimes objects to the higher costs

ROME, Italy (Reuters) — Global food prices rose in April for a third straight month as surging dairy costs continued to pressure a United Nations food price index. However, an expected increase in grain production may offer relief later this year. Food prices spiked last summer as the United States was hit by a severe drought and dry weather plagued other producers. Prices fell at the start of this year but have been rising again in the past three months. The Food and Agriculture Organization’s price index, which measures monthly changes for a basket of cereals, oilseeds, dairy, meat and sugar, averaged 215.5 points in April, up one percent from a revised 213.2 in March. A sharp rise in dairy prices was the main reason for the increase, while meat prices rose marginally and other commodities fell, the FAO said. The agency said global cereal production would increase six percent to 2.708 billion tonnes in 2013 from the previous year, led by an expected 9.3 percent rise in coarse grains production and a 5.4 percent gain in wheat. Whether the increased production lowers prices will depend on weather and demand over the next few months, said FAO senior economist Abdolreza Abbassian. The cereal forecast is still “very much at the mercy of Mother Nature”, he said. “If demand accelerates in 2013, the increase in production would be offset by higher demand.” Production of coarse grains in the U.S. is expected to drive this year’s increase, the FAO said. Corn producers intend to plant the largest area since 1936, it added. Europe and the Black Sea region are expected to contribute to higher wheat production, and India and Indonesia are expected to drive a 10 million tonne increase in rice production. Last year’s world cereal production was estimated to be 2.306 billion tonnes, four million tonnes lower than last month’s figure. Global cereal stocks at the end of this year are estimated at 505 million tonnes, five million tonnes higher than previously forecast, the FAO said.


Manitoba Conservative senator Don Plett likes his rib eye steak during the barbecue season. But what happens if there is a recall or he suspects some problem with the product he bought at a local retail outlet? “If I have a problem with that product, can you trace it all the way back to the farm?” Plett said at a recent Senate agriculture committee meeting a s f o o d re t a i l re p re s e nt at i v e s appeared to describe their traceability systems. “Absolutely,” said Janet Shanks, vice-president of fresh foods at Costco Canada. “We would rely on our suppliers. We run random tests with our suppliers to trace back a product to the farm, and they are able to do that.”

David Wilkes, senior vice-president of the grocery division of the Retail Council of Canada, told senators the same recall response exists across the retail system. “The first responsibility will be to get the product off the shelf within a matter of hours,” he said. “ The product is taken off the shelves, kept in the back room and then notification is provided through media.” He said the difference is that Costco is a members-only retail company that can quickly contact its members about a recall, while most stores must use media to reach customers. The food industry is working to implement a traceability system and an efficient food recall plan that the federal and provincial governments promised as part of a national food safety plan. Food retailers were at the

Senate committee to proclaim that they already have a system. Shanks said all meat products at Costco have an international bar code. “Our suppliers are able to actually trace it back to the farm where the product was produced.” It includes meat from foreign suppliers. She said the next goal will be to move the traceability system beyond beef products. “As we revamp our information systems, traceability will become part of that revamp, which will be taking place over the next few years,” said Shanks. “Produce will be the next big one that goes onto the system. As we know, this is an area where there are more food-borne illnesses than anywhere else so that would be our next priority. It does take a total revamp of

the information systems in order to do this so it is quite expensive and time-consuming.” Senators were impressed. “I think you have a terrific system,” former Prince Edward Island Liberal premier Catherine Callbeck told Shanks. “It is unbelievable.” Former Conservative senator Mike Duffy, days before he left the Conservative caucus in a welter of allegations about inappropriate benefit claims, wondered if sectors such as the hog industry object to the higher costs that come with traceability and standards systems. “Of course,” Shanks said. Wilkes had a more positive response. “Canada really is a world leader in collaboration, not only on identifying industry standards but also in implementing them in a way that makes sense for both the supplier and the retailer,” he said.

Food labelling review ‘a waste of resources’: consumer group BY KAREN MORRISON SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A Canadian Food Inspection Agency review of what local food means is an exercise in futility, says a consumer advocate. “It’s a waste of resources of the CFIA to be playing around with this,” said Mel Fruitman, vice-president of the Consumers’ Association of Canada. The CFIA announced it will seek input from consumers, industry and others to review food labelling regulations, guidelines and policies on food considered “local.” The agency defines local as food produced within the province or territory in which it is sold or food sold across provincial boundaries within 50 kilometres of the originating province or territory. Fruitman said it’s necessary to first define what the purpose is in designating something local and then defining what that means and why it’s something people even want in the first place. “Any definition they come up with will be wrong to a lot of people,” he said. “It’s a circular topic that gets you nowhere.” Claims such as local are voluntary, but food products are subject to prohibitions relating to false and misleading claims of the Food and Drugs Act and Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act. Previous policy interpreted local as food produced within 50 km of where it was sold or food sold that originated within the same or adjacent region. The review is expected to take one to two years.

It’s a waste of resources of the CFIA to be playing around with this. Any definition they come up with will be wrong to a lot of people. MEL FRUITMAN CONSUMERS’ ASSOCIATION OF CANADA

Teaching the teachers Farm tour enlightens | Conservation, grazing and stewardship among topics discussed BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

FILLMORE, Sask. — Field trips are usually for students, but Saskatchewan teachers recently took one of their own to learn about sustainable development. Some were surprised to find out how much they didn’t know about how people use the land and resources. Bill Sherven grew up in rural Saskatchewan and teaches at St. Augustine school in Wilcox. “I’ve been on the land all my life in southwest Saskatchewan and I never thought about grass like that,” he said after listening to rancher Les Johnston on his Fillmore farm. Johnston told the teachers about cross fencing and rotational grazing, remote watering and swath grazing. He talked about holistic and organic proponents who imply that the way he ranches is harmful or wrong. Much of Johnston’s acreage was cropped until the late 1980s and early 1990s, when it was reseeded to grass. He used the fence line along the ditch to show how grazing is

actually better for grass than letting it sit unused. The Johnston farm also contains native prairie, where the tour participants got a quick lesson in plant identification. The trip was the first organized in Saskatchewan by the Alberta-based Inside Education, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to connecting teachers and students to the environment and natural resources. Program manager Kathryn Wagner said the idea is to provide information in these areas, which change so often and so quickly that the curriculum can’t keep up. The tour also included presentations about the oil and gas sector, carbon capture and storage, water resources, conservation, species at risk and wind power. A final workshop discussed how teachers could bring the information into their classrooms. Sherven said he took two concepts away with him: stewardship and sustainability. “We need to look at our future with our resources and our environment,” he said. “At the same

time, you’ve got to have that balance of people being stewards and people making a living.” He incorporated some of what he learned about water in his first science class after the tour and said he intends to invite farmers to talk to the students about why they do what they do. Shirley Jones, who teaches in Elrose, said stewardship and sustainability stuck out for her, too. “The biggest thing I came away with was how little I know about my own backyard,” she said. That is something she intends to change for her students. Jones said they need to know about the larger world, but they also need to know about Saskatchewan. The type of information she gained from the tour can be added to the existing curriculum and still meet the required outcomes for each grade. Elrose School hopes to undertake project-based learning next year, and Jones thinks the projects can also include more about Saskatchewan. Landis teacher Dani Vavra arrived in Saskatchewan four years ago from British Columbia and said she

learns about the province from her students every day. She appreciated the big picture approach that Inside Education took during the tour and professional development sessions. “I think that’s important to do with our students as well — provide them with all kinds of perspectives so that they can use critical thinking to sort of develop their own picture of our world,” she said. Vavra said one of the things that stuck with her was the suggestion that teachers ask students what they are for, rather than what they are against. “That’s a nice way of turning it around and trying to create a sense of stewardship in our students because you’re making it relevant to them,” she said. Inside Education receives core funding from Alberta government departments, as well as grant money, industry partners and other nonprofits such as Ducks Unlimited. Wagner said they offer eight tours a year as well as programs that range from one to eight days and in-class programs for students.

Summer salads with whole grains I

love salads full of lentils, beans, rice, nuts, dried fruit and whole grains. I am not sure if it is my age, but I no longer think of whole grain as healthy food I should eat, but rather delicious food I want to eat. Whole grains that work well in salads include wild rice, brown rice, bulgur, wheat berries, farro, barley, corn, millet and quinoa. Their earthy, nutty flavour and chewy texture combined with fresh vegetables and fiery spices create dishes that are tasty and satisfying. And don’t forget healthy: whole grains provide protein, fibre, iron and B vitamins. The Whole Grain Council says research indicates that the benefits of whole grains include: • Stroke risk reduced 30 to 36 percent. • Type 2 diabetes risk reduced 21 to 30 percent. • Heart disease risk reduced 25 to 28 percent. • Better weight maintenance. Most studies show that eating three servings of whole grains a day provides the best benefit, but some



studies have shown that eating just one serving can reduce risk. People are often discouraged from using whole grains because of the cooking time required. Most grains cook like rice, which means using a rice cooker is a great time saver. Rice cookers cook until all the water has been completely absorbed by the rice or grain and then automatically switch over to the warm setting until they are ready to serve. You can usually cook most grains in a rice cooker similarly to how you would cook them on the stove top. Some grains , such as millet and

quinoa, must be cooked more carefully so that they retain their shape and don’t turn to mush. Bulgur and couscous, which is technically a pasta, simply need to be soaked in hot water for a few minutes to cook. I recently discovered that you can deepen the flavour of grains by toasting them for a few minutes in a skillet over medium heat. I have done this with nuts for years. One last idea would be to cook whole grains in larger amounts and freeze or store extra in the refrigerator for up to two to three days. Whole grain salads also keep well and taste even better the next day. Add leftover chicken, salmon or shrimp for a light lunch. For this article, I have chosen salad recipes with a variety of whole grains and savoury flavours.

ROSEMARY-FETA PEARL COUSCOUS SALAD Pearl couscous looks just like that — pearls. These tender pearls of pasta are tossed with crunchy red peppers and cucumber, tender white beans and a generous amount of herbs, feta and a splash of fresh lemon. You’ll never think of pasta salad the same. 2 cups water 500 mL 3/4 cup uncooked whole 175 mL wheat or regular couscous 1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and diced 1 medium cucumber, seeded and diced 1/3 cup finely chopped 75 mL red onion 1 cup lightly packed 250 mL spinach, coarsely chopped 1/2 (15 oz.) can no-salt added 220 mL navy or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained 1 tbsp. chopped fresh 15 mL rosemary 1 medium garlic clove, minced 2 tbsp. oil 30 mL 1 tsp. grated lemon zest 5 mL 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice 30 mL 1 tbsp. cider vinegar 15 mL 1/2 tsp. salt 2 mL

1/4 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper 3/4 cup reduced fat feta, crumbled

1 mL 175 mL

Bring the water to boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Stir in the couscous, return to a boil, reduce heat, cover tightly and simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until tender. Drain in a fine mesh sieve and run under cold water to cool completely. Shake off excess liquid. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine pepper, cucumber, onion, spinach, beans, rosemary, garlic, oil, zest, lemon juice, vinegar, salt and pepper. Stir in the couscous and toss until well blended. Gently stir in the feta. Yield: 10 servings. Serving size: 1/2 cup (125 mL). Source:

WHEAT BERRY AND APPLE SALAD This whole grain side dish offers crunch with a refreshing taste. 1 cup 1/2 tsp. 3 cups 1 cup 2 cups 1/2 cup 1/2 cup Dressing: 2 tbsp. 3 tbsp. 2 tbsp. 1 tbsp. 2 tsp.

wheat berries salt water finely chopped celery finely chopped apple finely chopped fresh mint finely chopped green onion

250 mL 2 mL 750 mL 250 mL 500 mL 125 mL 125 mL

oil apple cider vinegar apple juice honey finely minced fresh ginger

30 mL 45 mL 30 mL 15 mL 10 mL

Place wheat berries in a glass or ceramic bowl, cover with two inches (5 cm) of water and let sit overnight in refrigerator to soften. In the morning, drain water. Place berries in a small saucepan and add salt and three cups (750 mL) water. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 45 to 55 minutes or until tender. Drain excess water and place berries in large mixing bowl. Add celery, apples, mint and green onion and stir to combine. In small bowl, whisk oil, vinegar, apple juice, honey and ginger together. Pour over salad. Flavours improve if salad is refrigerated for up to four hours before serving. Yield: Eight servings. Servings size: 3/4 cup (175 mL). Source:

ASIAN BARLEY AND WILD RICE SALAD 1 cup 4 cups 1 cup 2 medium 1/4 cup 2 cups 1/3 cup 1/3 cup 1/4 cup 2 cups

wild rice 250 mL chicken broth 1L pot or pearl barley 250 mL red peppers, chopped chopped green 50 mL onions frozen corn, 500 mL thawed soy sauce 75 mL rice vinegar 250 mL sesame oil 50 mL chopped pecans 500 mL

In a large saucepan, bring wild rice and chicken broth to a boil. Reduce

heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Add barley and continue simmering for an additional 40 minutes. Cover and let stand until all moisture is absorbed. Cool. Put barley mixture in a large serving bowl. Add all remaining ingredients except pecans; mix well. Place in fridge for two hours or overnight. Add pecans just before serving. Hint: To toast pecan pieces, preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Spread pecans on a cookie sheet. Place in oven and set timer for five minutes. Remove and let cool. Yield: about 12 servings.

CILANTRO, BLACK BEAN AND FARRO SALAD Farro is a type of wheat common in Italian cooking. It has a nutty flavour with a slightly crunchy texture. Although it’s a distant cousin to the wheat berry, it cooks in a fraction of the time. Farro can be found in health food stores or substituted with wheat berries. 2 cups water 500 mL 1/2 cup uncooked farro 125 mL or wheat berries 1 1/4 cups grape tomatoes, 300 mL quartered 1 cup chopped fresh 250 mL cilantro 4 oz. fresh mozzarella 125 g petite balls or fresh mozzarella, cut into 1/2 inch (1 cm) cubes 1/2 cup finely chopped 125 mL red onion 1 medium jalapeno, seeded, (if desired) and finely chopped 2 medium garlic cloves, minced 3 tbsp. oil 45 mL 1 tsp. grated lime zest 5 mL 2 tbsp. fresh lime juice 30 mL 1 tbsp. cider vinegar 15 mL 1/2 tsp. salt 2 mL 1 15 oz. can no-salt 443 mL added black beans, rinsed and drained

Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Add the farro, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 15 to 18 minutes or until al dente. Drain in a fine mesh sieve and run under cold water to cool completely. Shake off excess liquid. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine tomatoes, cilantro, mozzarella, onion, jalapeno, garlic, oil, zest, lime juice, vinegar and salt. Stir in the farro and beans. Toss gently, until just blended. Serve immediately for peak flavors and texture. Cook’s tip: For peak colour and texture, do not add the black beans until the time of serving. The acidity in the other ingredients will cause the beans to “muddle” slightly onto the other ingredients if allowed to stand for longer than 30 minutes. Yield: 10 servings. Serving size: ½ cup (125 mL). Source:


THREE-GRAIN SALAD WITH GOAT CHEESE If you haven’t tried the new “old” grains, now’s the time. They’re fun to eat and when you mix them up, they make an intriguing presentation. It’s also loaded with fibre and protein. 4 cups water 1L 1/2 cup dried lentils, 125 mL sorted for stones and shriveled lentils and rinsed 1/3 cup uncooked quick 75 mL cooking bulgur 1/3 cup quinoa 75 mL 1/3 cup quick cooking 75 mL brown rice 1 medium red bell pepper, diced 1/2 cup finely chopped 125 mL red onion zest of 2 large lemons 3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice 45mL 1/4 cup oil 60 mL 1/4 tsp. dried pepper flakes 1 mL 1 cup chopped fresh 250 mL mint or Italian parsley 1 tsp. salt 5 mL

Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the bulgur, quinoa and rice. Cover and cook for 12 to 13 minutes, or until the lentils are just tender. Drain in a fine mesh sieve. Run under cold water to cool quickly. Drain well. Transfer to a large bowl. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the bell pepper, onion, lemon zest and juice, oil and pepper flakes. Stir until well blended. Stir in the drained lentil mixture and the mint. Toss gently or until well blended. Season with salt. Gently fold in the goat cheese and serve on lettuce leaves. Yield: 12 servings. Serving size: 1/2 cup (125 mL) lentil mixture and 1 lettuce leaf per serving Source:

WARM CURRIED LENTIL SALAD 1 tbsp. olive oil 15 mL 1 (whole) small red onion, sliced thinly 1 tbsp. Madras curry 15 mL powder 3 tbsp. red wine vinegar 45 mL 1 tbsp. honey 15 mL 1 1/2 cups fully cooked 375 mL lentils or canned lentils, drained and rinsed dash of sea salt and ground black pepper 5 cups arugula 1.25 L 1 tbsp. lemon juice 15 mL 1/2 cup dried cranberries 250 mL (reserve 1 tbsp./15 mL for garnish) 1/4 cup toasted pumpkin 60 mL seeds (reserve 1 tbsp./15 mL for garnish)

Saute onion with oil and a dash of salt and black pepper for three to five minutes on medium heat, or until the onions are rendered and golden. Add the curry powder and continue to cook for another five minutes on lowmedium heat. Deglaze with red wine vinegar. Add the honey and lentils. Continue to stir until the lentils are heated through. Combine arugula, oil, lemon juice, cranberries, and seeds, and season with salt and black pepper in a separate bowl. Combine reserved onion mixture with greens. Plate the salad quickly, garnish with dried cranberries and toasted seeds and serve. Serves four to six. Source:

QUINOA, BLACK BEAN AND MANGO SALAD Quinoa, an ancient “grain” that’s actually an edible seed related to beets and spinach, makes a fantastic base for a salad. Its mild, nutty flavour lends itself well to soups, grainy breakfast cereals and anything in which you would use rice or couscous. It also has a lighter, fluffier texture than most whole grains and is a rich source of protein. 1 cup 1 ripe 1 small 2 cups 1 cup 1/4 2-3

quinoa 250 mL mango, peeled and diced red or yellow pepper, seeded and diced baby spinach, (packed) 500 mL torn or sliced (half 19 oz can) black beans, 250 mL rinsed and drained English cucumber, chopped green onions, chopped, 60 mL or 1/4 cup chopped red onion

Dressing: 3 tbsp. canola oil 2 tbsp. white wine or white balsamic vinegar

45 mL 30 mL

2 tsp. honey 1/2 tsp. curry powder or paste 1/4 tsp. cumin

10 mL 2 mL 1 mL

Rinse quinoa well under cool water in fine sieve or in several changes of water. Drain well. In large pot of boiling salted water set over medium heat, cook quinoa until tender but still firm to bite, about 15 minutes. This happens when the germ separates, making it look like a curly Q. Drain well and return quinoa to pot off the heat. Cover with tea towel and replace lid, allowing it to steam and producing fluffy quinoa as it cools. In large bowl, combine cooled quinoa, mango, pepper, spinach, black beans, cucumber and onions. To make dressing, combine oil, vinegar, honey, curry and cumin in jar or small bowl and shake or whisk to blend. Drizzle salad with dressing and toss until well coated. Yield: Eight servings.

Slow Food Canada enthusiasts learn, tour, dine in Osoyoos, B.C. TEAM RESOURCES



Gord Forbes sells products at a farmers’ market, which was featured at the Slow Foods Canada conference in Osoyoos, B.C. | SARAH GALVIN PHOTOS

hen I first saw gardens sprouting in schoolyards across Alberta and Saskatchewan, I was encouraged that children will learn more about food. Food is seen as one measure of our traditions. When traditions have been lost, they have been lost forever. We cannot assume that the food we enjoy today will be available for the next generations. Serena Milano of Slow Food in Turin, Italy, believes it is not enough to write down how to grow a plant, but that we need the experience of farmers. Slow Food Canada recently met in Osoyoos, B.C., for its annual conference. Osoyoos, which means meeting place in the Okanagan First Nat i o n s la n g u a g e, w a s a g o o d choice for Slow Food’s updates on ongoing projects, orchard and farm tours and fine dining prepared by

local chefs with food supplied by local producers. Good, clean and fair are the basic tenets of the movement, which began in 1986 amid the opening of Italy’s first McDonald’s restaurant in Rome. Protests ensued to prevent it from tarnishing Italy’s strong reputation for good food. Slow Food’s focus on food has now broadened to include concerns for the environment, fair trade, health, animal welfare and tradition. The bounty of food grown, raised and made in the Thompson Okanagan region is not surprising considering it has the longest growing season in the country. Osoyoos is situated at the northern end of the Sonoran Desert and while early settlers loved the climate, it was not until irrigation arrived in 1914 that orchards and farms mushroomed. “Having a large variety of plant products grown is natural, now the world is becoming one culture. With-

out diversity, survival will be difficult in the case of a calamity such as climate change,” said Milano. To preserve food traditions, the Ark was created. Canada’s 13 contributions include Red Fife wheat and saskatoons. The conference noted the return of sockeye salmon to the Okanagan Lake. The construction of dams and irrigation systems over the past century made it impossible for salmon to return to their spawning grounds. A decade long U.S.-Canada effort building fish ladders has allowed the fish to come upstream on the Columbia River to the Okanagan. Salmon fry are released in the river near Oliver, B.C., and they swim downstream to the Pacific Ocean. After two years, they make the journey home to spawn. They are returning in numbers acceptable for commercial and recreational fishing. Mark Filatow, chef at the Waterfront Resort in Osoyoos, prepared salmon on an open fire pit on the beach and served it with fresh sorrel for the evening meal. Slow Food has grown into a global, grassroots organization with thousands of members around the world. Its members believe that they can reduce hunger, improve quality of life and look after the environment by caring about the food supply. Is Slow Food relevant in Canada? We have a cornucopia of food that should be protected along with our producers. Our status as the bread basket of the world is being challenged, but we can produce good, clean and fair food.

VANSCOY, Sask. — A desire to grow healthy food drives the Fehr family to overcome weather, wildlife and winter every year. “There’s been a share of challenges, but I enjoy the work,” said Ernie Fehr, who grows sour cherries, haskap and raspberries a short commute from Saskatoon at the Prairie Cherry Pit. “The reward is bringing a real healthy fruit to people who want it.” Ernie, with his wife, Carol, and adult children, Amanda and Ernie, spent this mid-May day pruning and preparing the bushes for the coming U-pick season. That included lowering drip irrigators after cultivating between the plants and rows. Carol’s numerous health concerns were a driving force behind the family seeking to grow fruit high in anti-oxidants, melatonins and vitamins. All the Fehrs except Carol work at off-farm at jobs: Ernie as a trucker, Amanda at the landfill and Ernie Jr. at Sarcan. The Fehrs say patience is necessary in their business because full production can take five to seven years from planting. “You don’t get into it and start counting the money the next year,” said Amanda. “We’re always fighting with the weather. The last few years have been very wet.” For example, Amanda cited $20,000 in replanting costs. Winterkill in raspberries forced the Fehrs to start them again from scratch. Gophers became less of a problem the more they worked the ground, but nothing deterred deer. “Every foot, we would put in a sixinch tree and a gopher would pull it out,” said Carol. Before the Fehrs spent $10,000 on

Even today, an open farm gate is reason for fleeting concern that deer might sneak into the orchard. “They’re not scared of anything,” said Carol. Deer-nibbled branches result in plants producing a greater density of stems and more mould, she said. Birds can take out an entire crop. In response, the Fehrs installed a wire above the long rows of haskap to support netting used as covers. “We had birds we’d never seen before,” said Ernie. “Hundreds came and cleaned us right out.” Added Amanda: “It was a hard lesson learned.” This year, the orchards are about two to three weeks behind normal. “The snow stayed so long so we are a little behind where we would be,” said Carol.

The Fehrs receive much needed cash flow for the fledgling operation by finishing Holstein steers to 500 pounds for local auction mart sales. They started planting in 2005 and opened in 2009. Carol said trees were a rare commodity when the family moved to this “wild piece of land” with good water and an abandoned yard and house in 1986. She saw the orchard as part of the couple’s retirement plan. “We were looking for something that we could do on 40 acres,” said Ernie, whose interest was spiked by fruit breeder Bob Bors of the University of Saskatchewan. They chose fruit that was not commercially available in the area and created processing and rest areas for pickers. The Fehrs enjoy working outdoors

An esthetically pleasing orchard is rewarding for Amanda, who is also responsible for tallying fruit yields. Her job is to help keep the land healthy, which is accomplished with manure supplied by their steers

rather than chemicals. The Fehrs market their in-season fruit through highway signs, a gate post featuring what’s ready to pick and the Saskatchewan Fruit Growers Association website. The association also keeps its members updated on industr y trends. “It’s nice having a community of people in the same business,” said Amanda. Added Carol: “They understand where you’re coming from.”



SPECIAL REPORT - Part two of two BSE demanded a response from every player associated with Canada’s beef sector: producers, packers, scientists, farm groups and politicians. Western Producer reporters Barb Glen and Barbara Duckworth document how the response changed the way the industry operates and how the world understands and reacts to BSE. Governments spent billions to support the industry but couldn’t focus on those most in need. Producers seeing opportunity in the crisis tried to move up the processing chain and capture more market power but lack of money prevented them from breaking free from the dominance of giant packers.

Canada leads the way in BSE research Evolving science | Research and policy have expanded and intensified since BSE was first discovered in Canada in 2003 Czub is investigating whether the atypical form can be transmitted by feed, and whether removal of specified risk material in slaughtered animals is a sufficient safeguard. Researchers are also puzzled why only one animal is ever found in a herd that presumably ate the same feed. Worldwide, fewer than five percent of the cases involved more than one animal from the same herd. Czub said a genetic link similar to that of scrapie in sheep and chronic wasting disease in cervids is a possibility. “But we have no really scientific data and information that there is a genetic resistance or a genetic susceptibility to BSE, but it almost seems like that.”



he way the world thinks about and reacts to BSE has changed thanks to Canada’s experience and influence. An international panel praised the country for its thorough inquiry and trace back after Canadian authorities completed their investigation into the first case reported in May 2003. “It has really positioned Canadian science in a very visible and positive way,” said Brian Evans, who was chief veterinary officer for the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. He retired earlier this year. “We had to change the international response to BSE,” he said. “We had to change the international standards to be reflective of how the science had evolved over the previous 15 or 20 years and we had to change the way the global community responded to BSE, including the OIE (World Organization for Animal Health), which was in the process of developing a country recognition process. Canada was very involved in the original definition of BSE.” There has been considerable government investment in research. A national network was established, and Alberta created its own $50 million initiative to support research into prion and prion-like diseases. Prions are the misfolded proteins that cause BSE. The Alberta Prion Research Institute supports work into animal diseases such as BSE, scrapie and chronic

When did BSE begin?

Few Canadians knew about the disease when BSE was found in 2003. A core group of 12 now have specific expertise and another 35 research the diseases from various directions, said

Kevin Keough, head of the institute. Among those researchers is Dr. Stefanie Czub, who heads the prion, pathology, virology and wildlife disease lab at Agriculture Canada’s research centre in Lethbridge. Her research is now focused on atypical BSE, a different type of disease than the classical form seen in most of the infected Canadian cattle. “The question is, of course, how does this occur,” said Czub of the

atypical form. “Is this related to feeding and contaminated feedstuffs and things like this?” she said. “There are not very many cases in the world, 65 in total. Canada has two of these cases, and the United States, these are their only cases, three of these atypical cases.” Animals infected with atypical BSE behave differently from those with the classical form.

Researchers also have questions about how long BSE has been around. Keough said scientists do not know whether BSE was present in the cattle population in a spontaneous form before it was first observed in England nearly 30 years ago. “The BSE problem began to be observed in the early to mid ’80s, but that doesn’t mean some of the downers that have been out there previously didn’t have it,” he said. “When you are not looking and you have a one in a million occurrence, you don’t notice it.” It’s possible that a few British cattle with a spontaneous form of the disease were rendered and put into the feed system, resulting in an epidemic where thousands of animals were afflicted.

The federal and provincial governments provided more than $4.85 billion by the end of 2007 in support payments, but in many cases the money went to meat packers instead of cattle producers. Industry insiders say there are no adequate disaster programs for events such as BSE, while government officials say it is hard to design supports for disasters like this without running afoul of trade obligations. | FILE PHOTOS

People eating contaminated beef eventually developed variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and about 200 died. In Canada, BSE has been a reportable disease since 1990 and the first case was found in 1993 in an imported Salers cow. Protein supplement contaminated with meat and bone meal was eventually cited as the probable cause, and Canada implemented a ban in 1997 on ruminant feed containing protein from ruminant mammals, poultry litter and restaurant waste. Following the home grown case of BSE, Canada also brought in strict rules dictating post-slaughter removal and disposal of brains, spinal cords, glands, nerve tissue and parts of the intestine from animals older than 30 months. These are not permitted in feed, pet food, fertilizer or food supplies. Thanks to this and similar bans in many countries, only 29 cases of BSE were reported in the world last year. Evans said the control measures have been effective. He and Keough agree some may not have been found. “To say that we found every single case that was out there would be very difficult to prove or disprove,” Evans said. Ongoing surveillance remains the key to Canada’s plan to eliminate BSE. The goal is 30,000 tests per year, but last year only 24,000 were tested. Czub said numbers declined when producers were no longer paid for submitting samples. “The program is really scrambling and it is very important to keep these numbers up for our country classification for the OIE and our trading partners,” she said. About 10,000 tests have been done this year. In the early years of the crisis, some demanded universal testing of every animal slaughtered. However, most animals are slaughtered before they reach 24 months of age and are not at risk. Evans said testing them would be more of a public relations exercise.


Producers thankful for gov’t support BSE skewed markets | Governments scrambled to send assistance to floundering producers BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU


inutes after Ben Thorlakson got the news that Canada had a confirmed case of BSE, he was thinking about the thousands of cattle he and others had on feed. Where would they go now that international markets suddenly closed for live animals and beef? “I thought this could be it. I said to myself, ‘Ralph won’t let this happen. He’ll take care of us.’ And he did.” Thorlakson had high praise for then Alberta premier Ralph Klein and agriculture minister Shirley McClellan, who delivered programs and kept one of the province’s key industries afloat during desperate times. “She certainly had Ralph Klein’s ear and she was very helpful in keeping our industry alive,” he said about McClellan. Thorlakson and fellow producers became heavily involved in working through the maze of government farm safety nets, none of which were capable of dealing with this kind of economic disaster. “We had to do it because if there was no input from producers we would have been devastated,” he said. “Thankfully, people like Shirley McClellan really helped and moved it forward federally.” He is not convinced similar help would be forthcoming now because there are no effective safety nets for cattle feeders currently struggling with record losses.

Thorlakson sold fat steers for 35 cents a pound during the height of the crisis, but the quickly designed assistance programs made up the gap between low market prices and feedlots’ break evens. Producer worries in 2003 weren’t helped by the fact that the latest farm safety net program had expired March 31 with no federalprovincial agreement on what should replace it or what kind of disaster relief might be available, said Dennis Laycraft, executive vice-president of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association. A wall of cattle was ready for market, but there was not enough domestic processing capacity, even after the United States agreed in August to accept boneless beef from cattle younger than 30 months. “People were literally afraid to sell cattle because they didn’t know if that would make them ineligible once a program did come into effect because not all programs are made retroactive,” Laycraft said. However, the programs were retroactive and the first money rolled out June 18. The program was appreciated but flawed. “We knew the way it was structured it would put too much market power into the processors’ hands and it should have been structured differently, but at that stage, because there was nothing predictable, that was agreed to. It created a lot of controversy,” he said. Federal agriculture minister Lyle Vanclief knew there were problems. “The cattlemen were always very

independent and have said they will fight their own battles, and I admire that,” he said. “Certainly, I can understand when this happened they wanted support from government and we gave them a significant amount of support, but certainly not the same level of return from their cattle that would have been if this situation hadn’t happened.” Vanclief said the cabinet was supportive, but it was not possible for any program to restore all that was lost. Key problems were getting money to those who needed it most and getting it to them quickly. BSE had twisted the market. Producers were receiving almost nothing for their cattle but consumers still saw high meat prices. “If you can buy cheap and sell at a higher price, it is a great way to make money. The packers were able to buy cheap, there was no question,” he said. The federal and provincial governments provided more than $4.85 billion by the end of 2007. About $2.2 billion was for BSErelated program payments while the rest came from the Net Income Stabilization Account, the Canadian Agriculture Income Stabilization program and provincial support. Alberta offered the most programs to cover market losses and provided grants for improved traceability and processor upgrades. Too often the money was misdirected. “The programs kept coming and many of them were not well de-

signed, so the result was that many of the dollars that the politicians meant to be for the producers actually ended up for packers. The packers just reduced their offering price,” said agricultural economist Kurt Klein from the University of Lethbridge. He and colleague Danny LeRoy analyzed the programs offered during the first four years and were unable to fully assess personal losses to producers and rural communities. Laycraft said each program tried to improve on the previous one. Current safety nets are still problematic, especially when people need cash immediately. “We still don’t have an adequate disaster program should an event like this happen again. We will be back with some ad hoc response,” he said. “When borders close to an industry, you really get market paralysis and a lot of the programs we’ve got right now are based on a response at the end of your year when you can take a look at what your margins were and what your income was.” Klein said drafting disaster assistance is troublesome and there are always those who know how to take advantage of programs. “Anytime you have assistance to an industry, it is very hard to keep it from distorting the industry,” he said. “We are bound by our WTO (World Trade Organization) obligations to try not to distort our industry, and we cannot have programs that change the price or change how much will be produced.”





What happened to processor expansion plans? Canadian plants needed | Border closures showed that overdependence on one market is a bad idea, say cattle producers BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU


he pitfalls of relying on one major market became painfully evident in May 2003 when the United States closed its borders to Canadian cattle. N e w s o f C a n a d a’s B S E c a s e sparked the closure of virtually all export markets for live cattle and beef, which was a crisis because the country exported 60 percent of its annual beef and cattle production, mainly to the U.S. As prices plunged and cull cattle accumulated, plans sprung up to build Canadian slaughter plants to handle the cattle that could no longer be exported. At least 21 federal plant expansions or new facilities were proposed by 2005, with the U.S. border still closed to all live animals and to beef from animals older than 30 months. Few of the projects got off the drawing board, fewer still ever opened and of those that did, few are still operating. Yet many people once involved in plant proposals believe the need remains for more competition in the Canadian meat packing industry. What kept those many earlier plans from fruition? Stan Schellenberger, former chair of the ill-fated Ranchers Own Meats slaughter plant in Edmonton, said it was money. The plant had bricks, mortar and equ ipm ent in p l a ce b u t n e v e r opened to do the job it was intended to do — slaughter 800 cows and bulls per day under federal inspection. “We all listened to experts because we didn’t think we were smart enough to do it ourselves. That was a major error. And the second was financing,” said Schellenberger. He and colleagues signed about 1,000 members to the Ranchers Own Meats co-operative in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. With several million dollars from members, plus another $30 to $40 million from private sector groups, Schellenberger was optimistic and undeterred by the failure of several other plant ventures. Cattle supply and markets were in place and the American packing industry was ready to buy trim, he said.


“But when we went to the banks to get some debt financing, we were the last. All our other buddies had gone into receivership, and the banks said, ‘well, why would we finance you?’ ” As a result, the plan failed after it was 75 percent built. Schellenberger said experts advised his group to expand capacity to 500 head per day from the original 200-head plan. “With a 200 a day plant and the $15 million we’d raised, we would have been in production and we’d probably still be in production,” he said. Schellenberger remains in touch with one of the success stories from those days. Canadian Premium Meats, a federal plant in Lacombe, Alta., opened in fall 2005 and continues to slaughter cattle, bison and horses at a capacity of 120 head per day. Next door to the plant, BioRefinex is expected to soon install a bioreactor that will derive plant fertilizer and biogas from the specified risk mate-

rial that must now be removed from beef carcasses. Lack of money was also a problem for the $40 million Ranchers Beef plant at Balzac, Alta., which operated for only 14 months before financing issues forced its closure in 2006. The plant’s capacity was 800 head per day, focusing on young cattle. Doug Price, one of the 50 investors, said timing was also an enemy. The original plan was to build it in Calgary and take advantage of low cattle prices, high meat prices and borders slowly opening to beef from younger cattle. However, opposition to the city location led to an alternative site in Balzac, delaying construction for a year. “If we could have had that plant earlier, then we would have had some of that profitability of low cattle prices and high retail (beef ) prices,” said Price. “We raised $23 million from the producers, from 50 people, so it was quite a bit of money, but we

needed more.” Price said lenders wouldn’t take the risk, and efforts to raise money from other sources were unsuccessful. “We still believe that we could have done it if we’d had more of a slush fund. It just takes a lot of money to start a plant up. I think the opportunity is still there, and I’m sure that most of the shareholders or all of the shareholders still think it was the right idea and the right thing.” Neil Peacock of Sexsmith, Alta., hasn’t given up on plans sparked by the BSE crisis to get a slaughter plant in northern Alberta. He said the need is greater than ever. “We were not able to get funding, but we’re not dead,” he said of the proposal once called Peace Country Tender Beef. “Everybody thinks we’re dead and I like that … because then they leave us alone.” Peacock said Canadian financing proved impossible to obtain, but European investors are now the target. “I believe we’ll get them eventually. I’m not going to say we’re going to get them tomorrow or anything like that, but my commitment has been to get a producer-owned packing plant for northern Alberta, and I won’t stop until I do.” The Tender Beef concept involved a producer-owned co-operative that would own a federally inspected plant and service niche markets rather than compete with processing giants Cargill and Tyson. Peacock said government help for the plant looked possible at one point, but co-operatives fell out of favour when the Conservatives beat the Liberals in the 2006 federal election. Banks and the provincial government were no help either, he added. “I was told … that if I want any help from the Alberta government, I’d better start thinking and acting like a

Conservative, and co-operative ventures are not a Conservative way of doing business.” Cam Ostercamp of Cayley, Alta., said he regrets the time he spent as leader of the Beef Information Group, which tried to gain support for producer-owned packing plants following the BSE crisis. “Had I known what opening my mouth was going to do for me, I’d have kept my mouth shut. I about drove myself nuts trying to do something good,” he said. The BIG group held meetings across the West and although support for the concept seemed strong, few producers contributed money. “I guess what I learned was that that idea was probably 30 or 40 years ahead of its time. The need is greater today than it was then and I think that the cattle industry today is more vulnerable than it was then.” He is critical of the “overpowering oligopoly” of the Canadian processing industry, dominated in the West by the Cargill Meat Solutions plant in High River, Alta., and the Lakeside plant in Brooks, Alta., recently sold to JBS, the giant Brazilian meat packing company. A cow-calf producer, Ostercamp said the future is gloomy for his sector because power is held elsewhere in the chain. “There’s so many fatal flaws in the business plan that the cow-calf guy works under,” he said. “He has absolutely no way of setting his price unless he wants to ignore the entire conventional industry and finish his own beef and kill it in a provincial plant and try to sell it. Most of them don’t realize what dire straits they’re in.” Other federal plant plans that operated and eventually folded include Blue Mountain Packers in Salmon Arm, B.C., and Natural Valley Farms in Neudorf, Sask.





Conversations about BSE: industry insiders share their beefs BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU


any Canadian cattle producers were shocked when the discovery of BSE caused most countries to close their borders to Canadian cattle and beef. Restoring trade access took far longer than expected, and the disruption ravaged the industry. Here’s how some key players experienced the storm.

‘BY GOD, I NEEDED THAT 16 CENTS’ In the early morning of July 18, 2005, Glen Thompson was involved in a covert operation supervising the loading of steers destined for a packing plant in Pasco, Washington. Every animal had been documented and paper work was double checked so nothing could derail this first shipment of live cattle to the United States since BSE had closed the border May 20, 2003. “We did this all very quietly behind the scenes,” he said. The plant was hesitant at the last minute, but “I said the cattle are on the road. They are coming.” The following day he sent three more loads from his feedlot at Iron Springs, Alta. Cattle younger than 30 months started to move across the border, ending years of stress and sleepless nights. Fed cattle prices had dropped a dime a pound every week the first year that the border was closed. Bankruptcy haunted beef producers. When the border closed in 2003, Thompson felt in his gut Canada was in for a long fight because U.S. protectionist forces would fight hard to keep the border closed. “I knew there was no good going to come of this,” he said. “It was all political. It had zero to do with any meat safety or any other issue. It was 100 percent political. It should never have been closed in the first place.… We made a company decision to sell our cattle in an orderly fashion, so we started selling cattle the following week.” At the lowest point, he was paid 16 cents a pound for a load of 35 Holstein steers. He figured he lost $35,000 in that deal, but any money was welcome in

the early days of the crisis. “By God, I needed that 16 cents.”

‘CATTLE DEVALUED IN HALF OVERNIGHT’ New rules had been passed by November 2007 to allow the export of breeding and mature animals born after 1999. Hardy Shore of London, Ont., was among the first to export cattle under the new rules. The shipment went to Barbados. His income depended on buying and exporting dairy cattle. When BSE closed borders in 2003, he cancelled his annual June sale. The collapsing market drove the value of his heifers to about $600 each. They had previously been valued at $2,300 each. “We were waiting for the border to open and what we really should have done was liquidate the inventory the minute we heard the news, but nobody knew what to do,” he said. “Cattle devalued in half overnight. I am still struggling to get on my feet. That took everything away from me.” His herd of 1,200 to 1,300 head is now down to 30 animals. He also sells bulls to artificial insemination centres, but that business was not affected. The rush was on when the U.S. border opened to export breeding stock in 2007 because there was a suddenly a great demand for dairy heifers in the United States due to improved milk prices. “We had more business than we could handle. We couldn’t fill the orders for young, milking animals,” he said. He was among the more fortunate because many heifer producers and dealers went out of business and never returned. One of his colleagues turned his barns into storage units for cars and boats.

‘R-CALF HAD A MUCH STRONGER LOBBY THAN MAYBE WE ANTICIPATED’ Most thought the disruption following the BSE discovery wouldn’t last long, said Stan Eby, president of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association in 2004-06. “Even in the first few days we thought that as an industry we had put enough safeguards in place that

we would be treated differently by our trading partners. That was somewhat naive,” he said from his farm at Kincardine, Ont., where his family has a backgrounding and feeding business. He and others met regularly with elected officials and trade representatives in Washington, D.C., to reopen the border, but discovered opposition from politicians influenced by powerful protectionist groups such as R-CALF in Montana. “It is obvious the R-CALF people had a much stronger lobby there than maybe we anticipated at that time,” Eby said. He describes one incident where the Canadians met with a congressional aide. Everyone exchanged business cards and Eby watched as the staffer folded their cards into tiny squares. “I had never seen anything quite like it. His body language was even worse,” he said. The stress lessened when the United States accepted boxed beef in August 2003. That helped, but there were still too many mature animals with no market and no room at the packing plants.

‘IT BECOMES ANOTHER PAWN IN TRADE DISCUSSION’ It was vital to regain access to the U.S. and Mexico, but Canada also wanted to return to the growing Asian market. That wasn’t easy. It has taken 10 years to increase access to Japan, said Ben Thorlakson, who was chair of the Canada Beef Export Federation. He said the response from Asian countries was often frustrating. “The Asians really treat health issues (seriously) and are very concerned and they want to protect their consumers.” However, they are also tough negotiators and place other issues on the table during the process. “They want some sort of tradeoff if you are going to get back in,” he said. “It is not just a case of the scientific basis for keeping our beef out. It also becomes another pawn in trade discussion.” Hong Kong and Macau granted access early on, but he suspects that


was because the governor of Macau had been educated in Canada. For others involved in negotiations, the belief in scientific evidence about minimal r isk was important.

‘HERE WE ARE 10 YEARS LATER, STILL NOT ALL THE WAY THROUGH IT’ Brad Wildeman, head of Poundmaker Agriventures at Lanigan, Sask., said there was no good scientific reason to keep borders closed. “I was one of those naive guys who thought, ‘we’ve got OIE and we’ve got all this science, why would we worry about it,’ ” he said. “It doesn’t take much for a particular country if they are looking for some reason to have some protectionist views. They will jump on anything.” Wildeman thought borders would reopen in a few weeks. “Here we are 10 years later, still not all the way through it,” he said. Business has changed and producers have become more cynical. Some producers left the business once prices recovered. Custom feeders with fewer than 1,000 head whose strategy was to add value to barley or manage income taxes are mostly gone, said Wildeman.


‘YOU WENT FROM ONE STORM TO ANOTHER FOR AN ENTIRE DECADE’ It has been more than a decade of crushing blows to an industry heavily dependent on exports, said Dennis Laycraft, executive vice-president of the cattlemen’s association. The U.S. passed a rule to allow live trade to resume in March 2005, but then R-CALF got a court injunction against the rule. Trade stopped and morale among Canadian producers fell to an all time low. “That was probably the second real black day for the industry,” Laycraft said. An appeals court overturned the injunction, and cattle were eligible for export in July, but there was little rejoicing. “Until you saw cattle moving across the border, you were always wondering when the next shoe would drop,” he said. Meanwhile, other issues dogged the industry. The Canadian dollar rose, making exports less competitive. In 2008, mandatory country-oforigin labelling became law and the world sank into one of worst recessions in 60 years. Fuel and grain prices jumped, causing the cost of production to soar. “You went from one storm to another for an entire decade,” he said.

Some hog farmers think it’s worth their while to move into open housing for gestating sows. Others think there’s no point. The difference tends to be based on how farmers assess concerns about gestation crates, which were first raised by animal welfare activists and are now shared by a substantial portion of the public. Optimists think addressing the concerns will appease activists and remove an issue that is bothering consumers. Pessimists think the activists will simply switch to another issue if gestation crates are eliminated because the ultimate goal is to eliminate all livestock production. Sayara Thurston of the Canadian chapter of Humane Society International, one of the leading campaigners against gestation stalls, said the deeply antagonistic relationship between farmers and activists would change significantly if gestation

crates were eliminated. Thurston also said the change wouldn’t destabilize the industry. “There is broad support amongst industry stakeholders for a move away from these outdated housing systems, a move which is supported by both sound science and by economic analysis, taking into account both costs of production and evolving consumer expectations,” Thurston said in an email. “This circumstance presents a true opportunity for animal welfare organizations and farmers to come together to facilitate positive change for animals and for the industry. HSI-Canada believes that working together is going to achieve this, and other changes much faster and we look forward to continuing to engage with all stakeholders on this, and on other animal welfare issues. By building collaborative, constructive relationships, we can always find ways to work together and move towards ways of farming that are better for farmers and animals alike.”

Insurance companies are slowly moving in to fill a void created by governments backing away from farm income support programs. However, a senior farm insurance provider says they’re not in a rush. Doug Lyall, vice-president of product development for Western Financial Group, said private replacements for government supports are going to be carefully structured so they don’t change as often as government programs. “We want to make sure that it’s not a short-lived product,” he said. “You want to make sure your products you bring to the table are going to last and be sustainable over 15, 20, 25, 50 years.” Governments have recently retreated from “ad hoc” disaster payments for the various types of weather and market crises that periodically afflict farmers.

They also slashed the support levels of one central government support program, AgriStability, leaving farmers fuming all winter at farm organizations about the collapse of the safety net. At the same time, private insurance providers have developed programs to both complement government programs and replace them. Lyall said the trend will continue and is more likely now that governments are playing a smaller role. “When the governments are doing the subsidy programs, it’s hard to get enough premium in to pay the claims and still have a margin of profit,” said Lyall. “As the government steps back and insurance companies look at this, there is a capacity to get enough premium to justify it.” Insurance provider Marsh already offers cost of production insurance, and different types of production insurance have existed for years. Almost $280 million was paid out to prairie farmers for 21,600 hail claims

last year, according to the Canadian Crop Hail Association. Lyall said farms are now much larger, more sophisticated and invest more per acre in crop production than in previous decades. As a result, many farmers are getting interested in insuring their growing risks. “Their risk is different,” said Lyall. “They’re storing millions of dollars of grain in grain bins on one site, when there used to be a bin on each quarter.” He said the private sector’s bigger role in farm insurance is the result of farmers’ recognition of increased risk, the government’s retreat from its support role and insurance companies’ seeing a bigger opportunity in agriculture “The industry has had to start to adapt to the new style of farming, the new ways that farmers have to operate, and make sure we’re providing products that adequately cover them with wheat they need in security on a cost effective basis,” he said.

(Reuters) — Smithfield Foods Inc. says it will soon raise half of its hogs on feed that does not contain ractopamine. The additive is a lean muscle promoting drug that has been banned in China and Russia. Two Smithfield plants, which handle 43,000 hogs a day or about 10 percent of the U.S. industry, are

already ractopamine free, said chief executive officer Larry Pope. The company will convert a third plant to be ractopamine free June 1. When that happens, “over 50 percent of our operations will have no ractopamine as part of their feed rations,” Pope said. China wants pork from the United States to be verified by a third party to

be free of ractopamine. Russia has banned imports of meat from the U.S. because of the presence of the food additive. Smithfield, which is the world’s largest pork producer, said its plant in Tar Heel, North Carolina, the world’s largest pork-processing facility, to be ready to meet China’s new requirement which took effect March 1.





Ontario beekeepers call for ban on neonicotinoid seed treatment FREELANCE WRITER

WATFORD, Ont. — Ontario beekeepers are convinced that neonicotinoid seed treatments are the biggest factor behind colony decline in their province. There were widespread bee deaths associated with the chemicals during seeding last year. Beekeepers say this year’s situation appears to be just as bad and possibly worse. Many producers believe the insecticide seed treatments have been affecting bee health for years. “This has been happening for the last five years, and we didn’t know what was happening. Everyone wants to tell us it’s viruses and parasites,” said Dan Davidson, president of the Ontario Beekeepers Association (OBA). Davidson said he doesn’t discount other problems, especially the parasitic varroa mite, but most beekeepers have learned how to manage them. Tom Congdon, who keeps bees in Essex and Wellington counties, blamed chemical companies and regulatory agencies. “They (the companies) are so powerful. It’s a big mountain we’re trying to climb, trying to fight these guys,” he said.“When they register a chemical,

those registrations go to fund the PMRA (Pest Management Regulatory Agency), so it’s kind of a conflict. It’s not really in their best interest to be totally unbiased on this.” Congdon said 40 of his hives in Essex were affected after corn was planted in the fields surrounding one of his yards. Davidson also blames neonicotinoids for losses at his hives near Watford this spring. He said there are acute and sub-lethal effects. “The acute deaths are like the bees being hit by a truck, but the nonacute poisoning is like a slow death,” Davidson said. The acute deaths are associated with exposure to insecticide-laced dust created at the time of planting neonicotinoid-treated seed. Modern pneumatic planters aggravate the problem by blowing the dust into the air. Most of the Ontario samples that the PMRA tested last year were found to contain clothianidin, a neonicotinoid associated with products marketed by Bayer Crop Sciences and Syngenta. Tibor Szabo, a beekeeper near Guelph, also had bee kills this spring. He said bees and other pollinators can pick up the neonicotinoid from pollen and nectar, as well as field dust.

The Ontario Beekeepers Association wants a ban on the chemicals similar to what’s to be imposed in the European Union, which is a two-year moratorium for three neonicotinoids on all crops except winter cereals and those that are not attractive to bees. There is no indication that a ban or moratorium is imminent in North America, but beekeepers feel farmers should at least have a choice not to use the insecticides. A spokesperson for CropLife Canada, which represents the crop protection industry, made the following points in response to questions concerning this year’s bee deaths and the EU moratorium: • The 2012 bee kill was an “exceptionally unusual” occurrence. • Insecticide-treated seeds actually help reduce the possibility of bees a n d o t h e r p o l l i nat o r s b e i n g exposed to insecticide. • Respected bee researchers around the world have said there is no one single factor responsible for bee health challenges. • Insecticide treated seed has been planted in Canada for more than a decade without major incidents. • Decisions such as the one taken by the EU to restrict the use of neonicotinoids are based on politics rather than sound science.

Dan Davidson and other Ontario beekeepers blame the sub-lethal effects of neonicotinoid insecticides for problems in their colonies. If his children are to have a chance in beekeeping, Davidson says seed treatments must go. | JEFFREY CARTER PHOTO

Inputs, weather top farmer concerns, survey shows Economic issues | Young farmers are more optimistic, plan to expand their farms and expect to increase profitability this year

Finding farm labour is becoming a big problem. Larger farmers are more worried about farm income support program cuts than smaller farmers. Young farmers are bullish about their future in farming. Those are some of the findings of a survey into prairie farmer attitudes conducted this spring. PRA Research Associates surveyed 962 prairie farmers and found attitudes that highlight problems that are beginning to haunt the West. “There appears to be a growing issue with regards to farm labour and securing farm labour,” said PRA managing partner Greg Mason. Thirty-two percent of farmers reported being worried about farm labour. In particular, 39 percent of farmers who produce more than $500,000 in revenue expressed a concern. That made labour the third highest anxiety farmers reported, following weather and high input prices.

in farmland that have been common in recent years. Only 20 percent intend to increase capital spending, the survey says, while 33 percent intend to reduce it. Mason said he thinks part of the reason that young farmers expect to increase their debt load and future profitability more than older farmers is that they are expanding their farms while older farmers are shrinking theirs. However, he thinks younger farmers are also turning contemporary farms into more capital-intensive enterprises, more like other industrial businesses. “I think that what a lot of farmers are finding is that their land asset base is growing in value,” said Mason. “That’s giving them more capacity to leverage. I’m suspecting in the next five to 10 years even faster consolidation of farming and a lot of farms will become very significant business operations with high levels of operating credit and debt and all the normal ways of going about with business.”

The shortage of farm labourers is an issue among 32 percent of farmers, according to a recent survey. | FILE PHOTO

HIRING WORKERS A CHALLENGE In a recent survey, respondents were asked which challenges were major or moderate to their operations. When asked about farm labour, nearly one third of total respondents anticipate finding farm workers will be a major challenge in the next crop year. Larger operations ($500,000 or more in farm revenue) were more likely than smaller operations ($100,000 or less in farm revenue) to anticipate difficulties hiring farm workers in the coming year. major moderate

Farmers also said they expect to be as profitable this year as last year, with 25 percent expecting to be more profitable and 25 percent expecting to be less profitable. Forty-seven percent expect to be as profitable as they were in 2012-13. However, younger farmers are more optimistic about 2013-14 profitability. While only 28 percent of farmers older than 55 expect their profits to increase this year, 62 percent of young farmers expect to make more money. At the same time, 61 percent of farmers expect their input costs to increase and only seven percent expect inputs to become cheaper. Only 19 percent of farmers expect their debt levels to increase, with more than half expecting it to stay the same. Young farmers are twice as likely to increase their debt this year as older farmers, with 33 percent expecting to see their debt load increase and 15 percent expect it to decrease. Farmers appear to be planning to ease off on the massive investments

Study looks at food handling to reduce listeriosis risk Attention focused on deli meat slicers in the 2008 outbreak (Reuters) — Simple safety techniques for food handling and preparation could help delicatessens and other food stores cut the risk of customers developing the potentially deadly foodborne illness of listeriosis, according to a U.S. government report. The report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration recommended strict control of temperature during refrigeration, better cleaning and sanitizing of food contact surfaces and wearing gloves while serving customers. The report analyzed the risk of illness associated with listeria monocytogenes, or L. monocytogenes pathogen, from food prepared and sold in delicatessens and other retail food stores. L. monocytogenes is a pathogen that has long been of concern to public health officials. In 2008, listeriosis from deli meats produced at a Maple Leaf plant in Ontario was cited as the underlying or contributing cause in 20 deaths across five provinces. Although relatively rare compared with other major foodborne illnesses, listeriosis has a fatality rate of about 16 percent, compared with just 0.5 percent for salmonella or Escherichia coli. Investigators simulated the retail deli environment and evaluated

how certain sanitary and food handling practices could influence the risk of developing listeriosis from ready-to-eat foods that are sliced, prepared or packaged in retail grocery delis. They found that employing basic practices that prevent growth of the bacteria dramatically reduced the predicted risk of listeriosis. Some of the main sources of L. monocytogenes are the slicer for deli meats and cheeses and salad utensils for the deli salads. These can lead to cross-contamination of other foods. Controlling cross-contamination at these points reduced the predicted risk of listeriosis, according to the report. The study “improves our understanding of L. monocytogenes in the retail deli and should encourage improvements to retail food safety practices and mitigation strategies,” the report notes, adding that additional data would be useful to further explore how more specific practices and conditions such as equipment design, impact the risk of listeriosis.

Expansion into India important but slow Trade opportunities | Conference Board of Canada identifies India as an important trade target BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Logan Reesor, left, and Caleb Vossler take the ponies to the house for supper at the Vossler ranch near Elkwater, Alta., May 20. | Agriculture and food exports to India remain a significant opportunity for Canada, says the Conference Board of Canada, despite continued Indian protection of its agricultural sector. However, the business-oriented think-tank said expansion will not be rapid and exporters must be patient in trying to break through complicated Indian import rules. Dairy products are among the export opportunities, although Canada’s dairy supply management system does not emphasize exports. “Agricultural commodities are not growing nearly as quickly as manufacturing and services (in exports to India),” the conference board report said. “Still, we include a few of the most promising agricultural sectors, with sugar, dairy, fruits and vegetables (including pulses and lentils) topping the list.” The report also said there may be opportunities for exporters beyond direct commodity exports. “With the opening up of India’s retail sector to greater foreign direct investment, related opportunities to sell agricultural products may open up along the supply chain,” it said. Food imports into India were worth $9 billion US in 2010, with Canada claiming a small share of that total, the report said. The conference board urged the federal government to pursue current trade talks with India. “The country still applies tariffs on many manufactured goods and very high tariffs on agricultural goods.” It also urged exporters to be patient. “Even in pockets of policy openness, India can be an extremely challenging market,” said the report. “Moreover, sector strengths, business cultures and policies vary from state to state. Companies need to be persistent and patient to cope with and overcome the myriad challenges of doing business in India.” The report did not speculate on the value of potential new agricultural and food trade into the Indian market. However, it did argue that emerging and fast-growing markets such as India must be the Canadian focus. The past has been dominated by over-dependence on exports to developed economies, and in particular the United States. “Canada’s global export performance has been weak,” it said. “The 2000s were a ‘lost decade’ for Canadian exports of goods and services with essentially no growth in trade volumes over this period. This largely reflects that the slow-growing U.S. market dominates Canada’s trade, and that Canada’s companies are underexposed to fast-growing markets.”

Govâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t links research with market development Funding partnerships | Ottawa wants to turn scientific knowledge into innovative products and processes BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Federal science minister Gary Goodyear emphasized the need to connect science with commerce last week, even as he announced $400 million in funding for basic science work by more than 3,800 researchers. On Parliament Hill May 21, Goodyear announced winners of a competition to share in basic â&#x20AC;&#x153;blue skyâ&#x20AC;? research funding over the next five years. It is money already announced in previous budgets. However, the minister of state for science and technology told a news conference he was unapologetic about what critics say is a move away from basic science in favour of industry-driven research aimed at creating commercial products and opportunities. He said a commitment to basic â&#x20AC;&#x153;discovery scienceâ&#x20AC;? remains strong, but it needs applications. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are improving the linkages between public research and private sector needs through programs that help companies partner with universities and colleges, and we are focusing on the conditions for a healthy innovation system, which are in fact supportive of marketplace frameworks,â&#x20AC;? he said. Goodyear said the perception in

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where we are not so strong is in the translation of that knowledge into products and processes. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t continue to fund programs that allow knowledge to sit on a shelf.â&#x20AC;? Goodyear said Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s private sector has not been as active in research and product development investment as companies in other countries. He said some companies argue the economy is doing well so why invest in research and development? Others are too small to have significant research and investment budgets. However, he said a timid Canadian business culture is the fundamental problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It goes all the way through our culture that we do need to be a little less worried about failure,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Failing is not the problem. Not learning from it is the problem.â&#x20AC;? He said Canadian industry should rediscover the culture of risk-taking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a decades-old problem,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we are taking the opportunity to try to change the way we work with business through partnerships â&#x20AC;Ś that hopefully will encourage businesses to understand their need to be competitive in a global marketplace. Competition is not across town. It is a mouse click away.â&#x20AC;?

A federally appointed science advisory council says Canada is a mediocre performer and a laggard in converting science advances into innovative products. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canada continues to tread water as a mid-level performer,â&#x20AC;? the Science, Technology and Innovation Council said in a May 21 report. The council said Canada should â&#x20AC;&#x153;aim higher and aspire to global leadershipâ&#x20AC;? in scientific achievement and adaptation to market needs. The council, comprising research and business leaders and created by the federal government in 2007, said Canada is not investing enough in basic research and not concentrating enough on translating scientific discoveries into commercial products. The report did not highlight agriculture. It offered a broader critique of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lukewarm performance in turning research and academic strength into innovation that would bolster the Canadian economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In order for Canada to create jobs and opportunity in a competitive world, we must aim higher,â&#x20AC;? council chair Howard Alper said in a statement when releasing the report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot be satisfied with the status quo or incremental progress.â&#x20AC;? A key complaint from the council was the lack of private corporate investment in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s research and development sector.

It also said more money should be invested in science and technologyoriented education and science sector personnel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadian business investment in research and development has continuously declined over the past decade,â&#x20AC;? council member Sophie Forest said in the statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 2011, Canada ranked 25th out of 41 economies.â&#x20AC;? The council, which the government created to monitor Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s science and innovation performance, said Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s direct funding for research and development last year was $5.8 billion, with most of the money going to universities and a declining amount allocated to federal research. The report said direct federal research funding to private companies last year was slightly more than $400 million. It has been stable in recent years but has declined from its 1992 peak of $533 million. Gary Goodyear, minister of state for science and technology, told a news conference that the report points out problems but also suggests the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emphasis on connecting research with market and product development is the way to go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The STIC report does point to, in my feeling quite strongly, to the government being on the right path,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It mentions that in this economic time and the knowledge-based economy of the world that we do need in fact to focus more on translating our discoveries into social and economic well-being.â&#x20AC;?





Bird flu virus could jump to humans: scientists Mutation possible | Research shows possibility of virus evolving into ‘a future pandemic threat cannot be excluded’ HONG KONG (Reuters) — The H7N9 bird flu virus may be capable of spreading from human to human and can be transmitted not only through direct contact but also through airborne exposure, researchers at the University of Hong Kong have found. The researchers found that three ferrets placed in close contact with ferrets injected with H7N9 contracted the virus. One out of three that were kept in different cages became infected through airborne exposure. The World Health Organization has previously said it had no evidence of “sustained human to human transmission” of the virus, which has killed 36 people in China. “The findings suggest that the possibility of this virus evolving further to form the basis of a future pandemic threat cannot be excluded,” said the research team, led by bird flu expert and microbiologist Yi Guan. The team also found that some infected animals did not develop fever and other clinical signs, indicating that asymptomatic infections among humans are possible. That would make the virus harder to detect and control.

The virus can also infect pigs but could not be transmitted from pig to pig or from pigs to other animals, the study showed. However, the team urged authorities to maintain surveillance to ensure the virus did not mutate into a more serious one. The WHO called the study a good one but cautioned that authorities have to keep a close eye on what’s happening on the ground. “Studies like that are really helpful for increasing general knowledge and it’s really helpful to know that under lab conditions this thing could transfer from person to person,” said WHO chief spokesperson Gregory Hart. “We’ve already seen maybe a few limited instances of human to human transmission within close family range, within close contacts, so this is another piece of the puzzle.” The findings come just days after the WHO said the H7N9 virus appeared to have been brought under control in China thanks to restrictions at bird markets. H7N9 has relatively mild clinical signs in ferrets, according to the study. Animals infected with the virus in the experiments presented symp-

toms for no more than seven days and all recovered from the disease. Researchers said that cases where humans died or became extremely ill were triggered by additional factors. “All the deceased or seriously ill

patients, (their illnesses) are due to other causes,” said Dr Maria Zhu Huachen from the research team. United Nations experts said last week that the bird flu outbreak in China had caused $6.5 billion in

losses to the economy. The H7N9 virus is known to have infected 130 people in mainland China since it emerged in March, but no cases have been detected since early May.

Public unaware of experts’ climate change consensus



Promote unity on issue | Scientists encouraged to inform public of agreement on causes of global warming OSLO, Norway (Reuters) — Ninetyseven percent of scientists say global warming is mainly man-made, but a wide public belief that experts are divided is making it harder to gain support for policies to curb climate change, according to a new international study. The report found an overwhelming view among scientists that human activity, led by the use of fossil fuels, was the main cause of rising temperatures in recent decades. “There is a strong scientific agreement about the cause of climate change, despite public perceptions to the contrary,” said John Cook of the University of Queensland in Australia, who led the study in the journal Environmental Research Letters. “There is a gaping chasm between the actual consensus and the public perception.… When people understand that scientists agree on global warming, they’re more likely to support policies that take action on it.” Global average surface temperatures have risen by .8 C since the Industrial Revolution. Experts in Australia, the United States, Britain and Canada studied 4,000 summaries of peer-reviewed papers in journals giving a view about climate change since the early 1990s and found that 97 percent said it was mainly caused by humans. They also asked authors for their views and found a 97 percent conviction from

replies covering 2,000 papers. The report said it was the biggest review ever conducted of scientific opinion on climate change. “If people disagree with what we’ve found, we want to know,” said Mark Richardson of the University of Reading in England, one of the authors of the study, which looked at Englishlanguage reports in more than 90 nations. Another co-author, Dana Nuccitelli of Skeptical Science, said she was encouraging scientists to stress the consensus “at every opportunity, particularly in media interviews.” Opinion polls in some countries show widespread belief that scientists disagree about whether climate change is caused by human activities or is part of natural swings such as in the sun’s output. A survey by the U.S. Pew Research Center published last October found that 45 percent of Americans said “yes” when asked: “Do scientists agre e Ear th is getting war mer because of human activity?” Fortythree percent said “No.” Concentrations of carbon dioxide hit 400 parts per million in the atmosphere earlier this month, the highest in perhaps three million years. Governments have agreed to work out a deal by the end of 2015 to slow climate change, which a United Nations panel of experts says will cause more floods, droughts and rising sea levels.

“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.

CASE AIM COMMAND AND SHARP SHOOTER “The Air Bubble Jet 90% LESS DRIFT, consistently produces droplets that are 200-550 microns in LESS RUN OFF, size. Too big to drift - too $ 25 SUPERIOR COVERAGE 11 small to run off.” NEW!


$ 95

Run off occurs with big droplets - 600 microns and over. Depending on the manufacturer, other low drift nozzles produce droplets that range in size from 250-1000 microns. That is why run off can be a problem. With a droplet size of 200-550 microns, your chemical stays on the plant when applied with the Air Bubble Jet. 2012 JD 4830 Sprayer, 100’ booms, SS 1000 gal tank, like new cond., spare set tires, $265,000. Can Deliver. Cypress River, MB. 204-743-2324.

New Twin Air Bubble Jet. With the twin cap, you can use 2-5 gallon nozzles rather than 1-10 gallon nozzles. The advantage is you get over twice as many droplets per square inch for superior coverage.

AG NOTES NEW RESEARCH MANAGER FOR ALTA. WHEAT COMMISSION The Alberta Wheat Commission has hired a research manager to help establish and implement wheat research in the province. Lauren Comin will be responsible for helping the commission implement its strategic direction for wheat research and then work with the commission’s research and extension partners to monitor and report on projects that will help Alberta wheat producers improve their bottom line. “I think this is an excellent time for farmers to support scientific research so that scientific research can support farmers,” Comin said in a news release. General manager Rick Istead said the commission is building a team that will help the organization focus

its vision and strategic priorities. Comin completed her PhD in bioresource and food engineering in 2011 at the University of Alberta. “Lauren’s skills, knowledge and enthusiastic attitude will serve us well as we look to invest in innovative research projects that will bring new technologies and best management practices to Alberta’s wheat produces,” said Istead. Alberta farmers grow more than 6.6 million acres of wheat a year. NEW INTERIM PRESIDENT FOR TRADE ALLIANCE The Alberta Barley Commission recently named general manager Lisa Skierka to the position of interim president of the Canadian Agri-Food Trade Alliance. Skierka fills the vacancy left by departing CAFTA president Richard Phillips. Phillips was recently

appointed president of the Canada Grains Council. ABC chair Matt Sawyer said Skierka’s presidency is a major boost to the agri-food industry. CAFTA comprises national and regional organizations that support increased open and fair international trade for Canadian agriculture and agri-food products. NEW DAIRY COMMISSION CHAIR Randy Williamson has recently been reappointed chair of the Canadian Dairy Commission. The chair is responsible for leading the CDC’s three-member board of directors, which also comprises the commissioner and chief executive officer. The position is the commission’s primary liaison to the federal agriculture minister. The CDC is a crown corporation established in 1966 to co-ordinate

federal and provincial dairy policies and create a control mechanism for stabilizing milk production and revenues. Williamson’s reappointment is effective Aug. 1 and lasts for two years. TEST TICKS FOR LYME DISEASE Albertans who find ticks this summer are encouraged to submit them for testing for the bacteria that causes Lyme disease in humans. Since 2007, the province has tested ticks found on farm animals and pets to determine if they carry the bacteria that cause Lyme disease. The program is being expanded to test ticks found on humans and in the environment. Anyone who finds a tick on themselves or in the environment is asked to call the closest participating Alberta Health Services office.

Staff will provide instruction for submitting a tick to one of the offices. Once testing is complete, Alberta Health Services will contact individuals to discuss the results. Veterinarians are also asked to continue to submit ticks found on farm animals or pets to Alberta Agriculture, as in previous years. This program is not intended to diagnose Lyme disease in an individual. Those questions should be addressed with your physician. For more information, visit www. ALTA. SEEKS TO EXPAND EXPORTS Alberta agriculture minister Verlyn Olson recently visited Kazakhstan on a trade mission to boost the province’s potential for trade exports there. Olson joined federal and industry representatives May 16-26 to develop trade opportunities and explore how Alberta can help the emerging market expand its agricultural economy. The trip follows up on a 2012 mission that generated an estimated $25 million in economic spinoffs for Alberta companies, according to the Alberta government. Gordon Stephenson, general manager of the Canadian Hereford Association, participated in the mission. “There is tremendous economic potential for our cattle and livestock genetic industry in Kazakhstan,” said Stephenson in a news release.

Livestock rescue operation closes in Alberta Under investigation by SPCA | The province has no rules governing the operation of animal rescue facilities BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

An Alberta livestock rescue organization being investigated by the provincial SPCA has closed its doors. The Forgotten Farm, owned and operated by Tara Davies near Springbank, recently posted notices about the operation’s closure via social media. The SPCA began an investigation after two former volunteers at the farm called with concerns about animal welfare.

“We do have an open investigation. We do not have any charges pending at this time and … we have not seized any animals,” SPCA communications manager Roland Lines said May 24. “We’re not anticipating any charges as a result of the investigation.” Lines said confidentiality policies prevent the SPCA from revealing how many animals are on the farm, the type of livestock involved in the investigation and whether any animals were found to be in distress. Recent television coverage of the Forgotten Farm’s operations showed

several horses but no other livestock. “One of the concerns around this case is it involves the fact that Forgotten Farm was at least nominally a rescue organization,” Lines said. “Our understanding is that she would take in animals that needed rehabilitation or re-homing.” Approximately 300 animal rescue operations function in Alberta, Lines added. Many of them are well run, but there are no restrictions on how they operate. The resulting variety ranges from individuals to established soci-

eties to registered charities. In some cases, the number or condition of rescued animals can overwhelm the individuals or groups operating the rescue. “We do often run into concerns with them that are sometimes simply due to the fact that these organizations are taking on animals that are already compromised,” said Lines. “There have been concerns about rescue organizations that got in over their head and weren’t able to provide sufficient care for the animals that they had.”

Lorna Baird, executive director of Alberta Farm Animal Care, said there is an online handbook of best management practices for animal rescues and shelters. “We would like more people to be aware of that resource and best practices to care for livestock when taking on rescue animals,” Baird said in an email. The online handbook outlines core ethical principles for rescue organizations, as well as general requirements regarding space, housing, sanitation and record keeping.


Ritz unsuccessful on ractopamine during Russian trade visit BY BARRY WILSON



Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz travelled to Russia last week with livestock sector representatives but did not win a reprieve from that country’s ban on livestock products treated with ractopamine. He told a teleconference call May 23 that he pressed Canada’s case against the ban on products treated with the common drug when he met with new Russian agriculture minister Nickolai Federeov. “I raised the issue of Russia’s new ban on ractopamine, which is having a negative impact on Canada’s pork and beef exports,” Ritz told reporters. “Russia is a very important market for us, but there are challenges and that’s why we’re here.” He said the Canadian message was that the Russian import ban is not based on sound science. “I strongly expressed Canada’s disappointment that despite our collaborative efforts over the years, the Russian government has moved forward with this measure that is not based on sound science,” Ritz said. “Our government will continue to work aggressively along with our Canadian industry to restore beef and pork access into the valuable Russian market.” Canada exported $563 million worth of agricultural and food products to Russia last year. Exports to Kazakhstan were worth $21 million, including $7 million worth of purebred cattle. It is Canada’s largest market for purebred cattle. Ritz said he also made clear that Canada’s support of Kazakhstan’s bid to join the World Trade Organization will depend on the country’s trade rules. “I underlined that membership in the WTO requires that their trade must be based on science and fair trade,” he told reporters. “This applies to the ractopamine issue and any other non-scientific trade barrier that may come up.”

Maestro delivers accurate corn seed placem Unique corn planter | Sees and manages each seed individually BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

BRANDON — Improving methods to more accurately place seeds of high value crops has become a precise science. Now, Horsch, formerly known as Horsch Anderson, says it has what many producers are looking for in its Maestro corn planter, which can plant corn at 10 m.p.h. on a well-prepared seed bed. The Maestro officially entered the North American planter market with six units sold to selected corn growers, at a time of increasing corn acres in North America. Horsch sales manager Jeremy Hughes said the strong demand for aftermarket attachments and modifications sends a message that farmers are not satisfied with their current options. “What we’ve seen in all parts of North America is that growers spend a lot of time and money modifying their planters,” he said. Hughes said the new Maestro is a major design departure from the style of planters growers are accustomed to in North America. Hughes said the Maestro is unlike

The unique grooved metering disc transforms the seeds circular motion into linear motion without the violence seeds can suffer going down into the tube. | HORSCH ILLUSTRATION most planters today, which use sprockets, chains, hydraulic motors and air clutches for sectional control. “The Maestro simplifies all that. Every meter on every row unit is driven by a digitally controlled elec-

tric motor. “Digitally controlled electric motors not only give us individual row shut off and individual row unit control, but they respond instantly to commands. This gives the grower

unprecedented control of what goes into the ground.” Unlike some add-on electric meter drives that have recently come to market, the Maestro 12-volt system does not require an auxiliary power generator. It functions with the tractor’s regular electrical system. “The other factor is that the Maestro is engineered to function only with the digitally controlled 12-volt motor. It’s an integral part of the design. “The aftermarket add-ons are simply that. Add-ons. You install them on a metering system that was never engineered for electric drive metering.” The digital electric drive metering allows the farmer to control everything from the cab. “If I’m going along in the field planting 30,000 kernels and I need to change to 25,000, I simply key in 25,000 then push “enter” and I keep going planting 25,000. I don’t even get off the tractor.” Instead of the holes, which have been used in metering discs for decades, the Maestro has grooves that open up to the seed tube. The smooth geometry gives the seed a gentle transition from the circular motion of the disc to the linear motion down the tube. Seed handling is less violent and seeds don’t bounce once in the tube. “That gives us excellent singulation, even at nine or 10 m.p.h. And every seed run is monitored so the

operator can spot a problem the moment it occurs.” In North America, the open groove system is only available for corn so far. In Europe, it has already been calibrated for sugar beets. The long-term plan is to make the Maestro compatible with every type of seed, according to Maestro’s Drew Gerber from the Horsch head office in Dodge City, Kansas. “Our challenge for the seed sensor is to detect small seeds like canola and cereals,” said Gerber. He added the Maestro’s high level of precision at high ground speed is based on the ability to digitally identify each seed as it falls from the groove and enters the tube. “We need that information to calculate the distance between seeds within a row to meet the exact plant population criteria.” Data from the seed sensor and ground speed sensor go into the computer, which sends a message to the digitally controlled electric motor on the meter. Each seed across the width of the toolbar is dispensed when needed, regardless of how many row units on the planter. Seed sensor technology is easier with large seeds such as corn, but the technology is expected to continue developing so it can manage the smaller seeds with no skips or doubles at higher ground speeds. Gerber said that in three years of

ment at 10 m.p.h. field testing, the Maestro corn planter was 50 to 60 percent faster than any other North American planter running in the same ideally prepared seedbed. “So far, we haven’t seen those speeds in no-till conditions, but we have proven that in no-till, we can increase our field speed by 20 to 30 percent compared to other North American planters.” Seed and fertilizer represent weight, whether carried in boxes across the planter frame or in a central box. Weight fluctuation has always been an issue as product moves from machine to soil. Hughes said the Maestro cart and toolbar arrangement eliminates weight variation issues while eliminating soil compaction and variations between the centre section and wings. “Our cart rolls along on these large diameter 20.8 R42 high-flotation tires instead of implement tires. But that’s only part of the reason we don’t get stuck,” he said adding that that the key to eliminating compaction is tied to more than tire size. “Our tool bar and cart design is quite different from what we’re used to seeing. If you look at your typical John Deere or Case planter, the seed unit or seed box sits on top of the tool bar. Weight is carried on the tool bar and that’s not good. “Don’t get the idea the Maestro is just a tow-between cart pulling a toolbar. This is a totally different concept. The weight of seed and fertilizer is transferred from the cart to the toolbar through a direct hydraulic link up. The cart is an integral part of the planter instead of a separate unit.” Hughes said the design allows the Maestro to be the largest capacity planter in North America. The liquid cart carries 140 bushels of seed plus 1,000 gallons US of liquid fertilizer. It’s available to feed either the 12 row or 24 row Maestro planter. The dry cart carries 60 bu. of seed

plus seven tons of granular fertilizer. It’s available to feed either the eight row or 12 row Maestro planter. Controlling that much weight can be a major headache, especially on the largest Maestro tool bar which measures 60 feet. “Here’s what we do. We transfer active down pressure from the cart out to the wings. We always have down pressure on the wings so they don’t ride up in rough conditions.” As well, the hydraulic linkage system virtually eliminates compaction in the wheel tracks, according to Gerber. “The two, different sized cylinders continuously work in harmony forcing the entire tool bar to run level and equally distribute weight to every row unit. “Each cylinder has its own accumulator and every row unit has the same down pressure,” he said. Hughes said the engineering innovations extend down to the openers. “On the row units, we don’t use air bags or springs for down pressure. That’s not precise. “We use a hydraulic cylinder on each row unit so when you’re sitting in the cab, you can dial in the exact down force you need all the way up to 770 pounds.” He says controlled hydraulic downforce gives the row units a smoother ride with less bounce and quicker reaction to changes in the field surface. European farmers are firmly tied to granular fertilizer, according to Gerber. All European Maestro units are built solely for granular, with the necessary addition of a separate double disc opener on each row unit. Six Maestro units were released last winter to selected growers Those prices were not made public and prices for units for 2014 have not been announced.

Let forage roots develop before grazing: expert Winter damage | Plants are late coming out of dormancy BY REBECA KUROPATWA FREELANCE WRITER

Producers should be careful not to let their cattle graze alfalfa too early this year. Glenn Friesen, a Manitoba Agriculture forage specialist, said there is no widespread alfalfa winterkill from last year, but many plants came late out of dormancy. “Every day, the first grazing pass delay adds about three days to fall grazing, as you’re allowing roots to develop after a long winter,” Friesen said. The advice applies to legumes and grasses, he added. Identifying alfalfa winter injury can be difficult. Producers who suspect winter damage can follow guidelines to help determine their next action. Diagnosing injury The best time to spot winter injury is just after the first plants begin to green up in spring. “This is when you’ll see the widest spread in plant health,” said Friesen. “Always inspect the entire field, paying attention to high risk areas (low and high spots). Take note of the range of stem numbers emerging from each plant and their height, as these are early signs of injury. Also, look at new crown buds, especially on plants slow to green up. If few buds are growing, you can expect additional yield losses.” Friesen recommended carefully

or older should be rotated to another crop to avoid autotoxicity.

Harvest timing

Consider the ratio between grass and alfalfa in grass and alfalfa mixtures. “If your stand, for example, is 40 percent alfalfa and 60 percent grass, you should reduce the alfalfa stand targets to 40 percent of your stem count target (a target of 40 stems becomes 16 stems),” said Friesen. Crown and root reserves are perennial crops’ crucial advantages over annuals. There may be growing tip damage, but the plant will be able to send out new growing points, as long

Alfalfa will be slow to recover in the spring if there is winter injury, so leave the first harvest until midbloom to allow the damaged crown to heal and build up reserves.

as the crown is not damaged. Friesen offered the following guidelines for assessing stand damage from frost: • Do nothing if fewer than 30 percent of the stem tops show frost wilting or browning. The stand will have reduced yields in the first cutting, but will recover completely by the second cutting. • Do nothing if most or all of the stem tops are damaged and the stand is less than 25 centimetres tall. The growing points have been killed, but the alfalfa will form new buds at lower leaf junctures and continue growing. The first cutting might be delayed. Alfalfa may have horizontal growth, and mowing the existing top growth won’t enhance recovery. Harvest the stand and allow it to re-grow if the stand is more than 30 cm tall. • The plant is dead if all the plant stems are frozen back to the ground. Friesen said he hasn’t heard of this extent of frost damage occurring, but producers should consider rotating to another crop and replanting alfalfa in another field to avoid autotoxicity if it does happen and fewer than five plants remain per sq. foot. • Alfalfa and most winter hardy forage grass and legume seedlings are cold tolerant at emergence, but tolerance changes with age. Four or more hours of temperatures around -5 C may kill new seedlings. • Reseeding shouldn’t be necessary if more than 20 plants per sq. foot remain. Consider reseeding or broadcasting additional seed if the stand has less than 15 plants per sq. foot. Autotoxicity isn’t an issue because plants are less than two years old.


Entomologist responds to furor over sulfoxaflor approval BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Beekeepers, environmentalists and the public should take a breath before passing judgment on a new insecticide, says an American entomologist. In early May, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approved the registration of sulfoxaflor as a foliar spray for fruit, vegetables, soybeans, barley and canola. Dow Agro, which developed sulfoxaflor, said the chemical is part of a new category of insecticides. “Sulfoxaflor has a unique mode of action and is the first member of a new class of insecticides, the sulfoximines,” a Dow AgroSciences Canada spokesperson said in an email. Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency has also approved sulfoxaflor as a foliar spray. The EPA’s decision provoked a deluge of criticism as beekeeper organizations, anti-pesticide advocates and conservation groups labelled sulfoxaflor as a threat to bees. On its website, the Centre for Food Safety said sufloxaflor is highly toxic to bees and is similar to a class of insecticides called neonicotinoids, which were recently banned in

Europe because authorities believe they are killing bees. The American Beekeeping Federation signed a letter to the EPA before sulfoxaflor’s approval that said the science suggests sulfaxaflor is highly toxic to bees and it would be “irresponsible that the (EPA) would allow yet another chemical with a high potential to be hazardous to bee health into the environment.” A Dow Agro Canada spokesperson said the insecticides’ impact on bees was assessed during the registration process. “Like most commonly used insecticides, sulfoxaflor can be acutely toxic when bees contact the spray itself, but toxicity of sulfoxaflor is greatly reduced when the spray has dried.” However, Mark Whalon, an entomologist with Michigan State University, said it’s important to remember that the science around bees and insecticides is highly complex. Therefore, the public shouldn’t accept simplistic platitudes and sound bites, such as sulfoxaflor is “highly toxic” to bees. “If a guy like me has to go back and review the toxicity data (on sulfoxaflor), what’s the likelihood that Sandy Miller, an everyday homemaker … is going to be able to understand this,”

Sulfoxaflor is a new category of chemical approved for fruit, vegetables, soybeans, barley and canola. Some beekeepers are concerned about its effects on bees. | FILE PHOTO said Whalon, who advises the EPA and the U.S. Department of Agriculture on insect issues. As a result, Whalon said he won’t make a snap judgment on sulfoxaflor until he has time to review the relevant research papers. However, he said there is no “smoking gun” demonstrating that neonicotinoids are causing widespread bee losses around the globe. Most entomologists believe multiple factors are to blame. Whalon is particularly perturbed by the obsession with neonicotinoids and new chemistries such as sulfoxaflor because beekeepers

apply highly toxic insecticides directly to bees to control mites. “Here’s the crazy thing. We’re still using organophosphates, nerve toxins, in the hive,” he said. “Do pesticides (like neonics) have an impact? Absolutely. But how can we be talking about pesticides in the field when we’re still using primitive chemistry to control mites in the hive?” The EPA collaborated with the PMRA and Australian regulators on the sulfoxaflor review. According to an EPA news release, the agencies evaluated more than 400 studies on sulfoxaflor’s chemistry.

Whalon said the public should have more faith in the approval process. “I think we (U.S.) have one of the best regulatory processes on Earth. It is pedantic, it is formulaic and it is thorough.” Whalon’s tone suggests he is an insecticide apologist, but he is actually an organic agriculture advocate. He directs the Michigan State Pesticide Alternatives Lab, which helps producers switch to environmentally benign and organic pest management strategies. However, he is also a realist, saying it will take many years to devise effective alternatives to insecticides.





Most wheat crops used to have a yellow phase in late June or early July when wild mustard came through the crop. Before herbicide tolerant canola, the weed was a yield robber and a contamination threat to canola and rapeseed growers. The aggressive plant, formally known as Sinapis arvensis, can be found in most of the grain growing regions of the northern hemisphere. It can be short or tall, reaching up to 100 centimetres in some cases. It has branches and leaves that are hairy, unevenly toothed and end in a rounded lobe. Unlike canola, wild mustard’s leaves are supported by short stalks. Branches at their base often have violet spots. The stem hairs are stiff and pointed toward the ground. Seeds begin germination when soil temperatures reach 2 to 4 C and will continue with fresh rain and as the soil temperature rises. Seeds prefer to start shallow in the soil, but can hang around for up to a decade, until conditions are right for it to germinate. Seeds can survive animal feeding, which means hay from fields where the mature plant is present can help spread the weed. Farmers who scout for the weed early in the season should look for

Wild mustard seeds can lie dormant for up to 10 years, waiting for ideal conditions to germinate. | FILE PHOTO broad, kidney-shaped, cotyledon leaves. The yellow flowers can be mistaken for other mustard family plants. The seedpods are also known as siliques. It differs from other mustards by having some seeds in the flat terminal end of the seedpod. The pods narrow toward the last third of the terminal end and are held to the plant at the other end by a short, thick piece of stalk. The weed discourages many prod u c e r s f ro m g row i ng mu s t a rd

because of its ability to contaminate fields of tame mustard. Contamination in canola can reach a point where the crop is graded sample, resulting in steep financial losses. The threshold is about 20 wild mustard plants per sq. metre. A Saskatchewan farmer once won a judgment against the Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corp. for denying his weed damage claim. The farmer had taken an agronomist and a custom spraying contractor’s advice to apply a common her-

bicide that controls wild mustard in a Polish rapeseed crop. A significant weed population persisted despite the herbicide application and the crop was lost. The weed was identified as wild mustard, but in fact the wild mustard in the field had been killed. It was a look-alike brassica, wild radish, that survived the spray and did the damage. Wild mustard plants act as hosts to a variety of disease-causing organisms, which can damage tame brassicas, such as canola.

It can activate spores and become infected by disease when growing in soil containing clubroot. Herbicide tolerant canola varieties and hybrids have helped reduce the weed’s presence in those fields. The spring annual has little or no resistance to tillage, but tillage can also disturb ungerminated seeds, causing a new crop of problems and creating other issues related to moisture loss, erosion and increased production expense. Ten plants per sq. metre in cereals can result in a 10 to 20 bushel per acre yield loss, while 10 plants per sq. metre in flax can cut yields by up to 50 percent and 33 plants per sq. metre can reduce yields by 65 percent in peas. The good news is that a variety of herbicides are available to control the weed in a pre-seed burnoff and in-crop situations. The only control challenges are in non-herbicide resistant brassica crops and when the weed’s growth stage is well advanced before application. Some of the weed’s population has developed tolerance to Group 2, ALS inhibitor herbicides including ethametsulfuron-methyl, imazethapyr, thifensulfuron-methyl and tribenuron-methyl. As with many weeds, the most effective methods of control are multiple mode of action herbicide approaches, crop rotation and limiting seed production.

The 20-year-old facility devotes 12,000 sq. feet to the vegetable’s history. “We have a made-in-P.E.I. theme,” said Stanley Macdonald, a retired pharmacist who chairs the museum board. “We’re recognized as one of the tourism stops in P.E.I.” Displays tell how Spanish conquistadors discovered potatoes while pillaging South America and came to rely on their easy availability and high nutritional value. “The Spanish went to find gold, but they found something better,” said Macdonald. He said P.E.I.’s climate mimics that of the Peruvian Andes with warm days and cool nights coupled with rock-free fields of rich red earth. The British brought potatoes to the province in the 1750s to plant and feed immigrants. By 1771, a colonial governor’s report called the year’s crop a “phenomenal success,” and by 1790, island farmers were exporting them to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the Caribbean. Today, P.E.I. farmers grow 1.3 billion kilograms of potatoes, which is one-third of all Canadian production. It works out to 10,000 kg per person on the island of 140,000. “That’s more per capita than anywhere else in the world,” Macdonald said. The museum describes how potatoes are separated for processing into french fries and other products, bagged for consumer tables and used for seed. P.E.I. is the world’s second largest exporter of seed potatoes, sending them to 30 countries. A major expansion at the museum in 2000 added the $500,000 Amazing Potato exhibit, which was previously displayed at Ottawa’s National Museum of Science and Technology and the Canadian Agr iculture Museum. It details numerous varieties, such as Yukon Gold, Fundy, Cariboo, Katahdin, Avon, Sable and Ruritan, as well as the popular Russett Burbank, the dark-skinned nearly eyeless strain that produces and stores well and is ideal for baking and french fry production.  A novelty exhibit recreates Thomas Siddal’s world record 8.275 kg potato, which was harvested in Chester, England, in 1795.

A large antique machinery gallery contains implements devised and built on P.E.I., and a new blacksmith’s shop will soon join the longstanding carriage-making shop. A Hall of Fame includes islanders who have developed the potato industry, while a community museum details O’Leary’s history and takes liberty to recognize Stompin’ Tom Connors, the Bud the Spud songwriter who grew up nearby in Skinners Pond. An outdoor Heritage Village contains a log barn, church, school and telephone office. Admissions and a gift shop bring in revenue, especially during O’Leary’s Potato Blossom Festival every July, but the museum’s kitchen has proven both lucrative and celebrated. It caters special functions from all over the province, hosts international visits and serves lunch to locals. The kitchen also provides the basis of the museum’s Potato Experience, a day where visitors try their hands at preparing hand-cut french fries as well as potato-based chili, soup, biscuits, ice cream and fudge. “We have milk and dark chocolate, and they’re so good, you’d never know they have potatoes in them,” said museum manager Donna Rawley. The day also includes a visit to farmer Denton Ellis, who grows 500 acres of potatoes and another 1,000 acres of barley, wheat, soy and oats. “We always lend a hand to explain to the people what it really means to be touching the red soil,” said this third generation producer. “If they can see the field and the production, make the connection back to the farm and get an understanding of what it takes to produce food for the table, it’s beneficial.” Fundraising received a big push when producer John Griffin teamed with Sobey’s to sell bagged potatoes across the Maritimes, with each company donating 25 cents per bag to the museum. The effort brought in $49,000 and 198,000 bags emblazoned with the museum’s logo ended up in households. Macdonald said such attention is sure to add to the 7,000 visitors who annually tour the facility, but it won’t be able to compete with the 14-foothigh Russet Burbank gracing the museum’s entrance.  “That big potato out there is our best advantage.”

HUMBLE POTATO HAS SOME NOT-SO-HUMBLE ATTRIBUTES • The potato (Solanum tuberosum) is a member of the Solanaceae or nightshade family, which includes other horticultural crops such as tomato, pepper, eggplant and tobacco. • Potatoes are commercially produced in every province in Canada with main production concentrated in Prince Edward Island, Manitoba, Alberta, Quebec and New Brunswick. Source: Agriculture Canada/Staff Research

• Potato is the most important vegetable crop in Canada, accounting for 59 percent of all vegetable farm cash receipts in 2011, according to Statistics Canada. • Potatoes are non-fattening, nutritious, and supply important nutrients. • One medium-sized potato contains about half the daily adult requirement of vitamin C. Potatoes are fat free, cholesterol free and saturated fat free.

• One medium-sized potato contains about 100 calories. It also has .72 grams of potassium, 26 grams of carbohydrates, three grams dietary fibre, three grams sugar and four grams of protein. • Potatoes contain at least 12 essential vitamins and minerals. They are a good source of vitamin B6, thiamine, iron, folic acid, and dietary fibre (if the skin is eaten).

COOL could affect cattle marketing


Costs to industry have been ‘substantial at many levels,’ say feedlot operators BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

VERNON, B.C. — The latest version of the U.S. country-of-origin labelling law could force producers to make hard decisions when they sell cattle this fall. “It is going to affect the direction our cattle go,” said British Columbia feedlot owner Bill Freding of Oliver. Like many other producers close to the border, he relied on open U.S. trade to ship feeder and fat cattle. Finished cattle were sent to Tyson Foods in Pasco, Washington, and Agri Beef Co. in Toppenish, Wash. Many preferred selling to Agri-Beef because it did not discount Canadian cattle the way Tyson did. Agri-Beef built a program that promoted beef from the northwestern region regardless of its country of origin. When the World Trade Organization ruled that COOL violated international agreements, Freding thought the United States would make the necessary changes and end discrimination against Canadian livestock. “I thought they would be reasonable,” he said in an interview at the BC. Cattlemen’s Association’s annual meeting in Vernon May 23-25. Instead, the U.S. Department of Agriculture tightened the rules demanding documentation at every step of the processing chain rather than accepting livestock processed in an American plant as product of the U.S. To maintain identity, cattle are sorted by nationality and may be killed on certain days or at the end of a shift. “It doesn’t make sense to me as to why they would do this,” Freding said. Alternatives were sought when the law went into effect in 2008. More feedlots in B.C. have switched to backgrounding cattle until they reach 900 pounds, but other threats, such as a shortage of high priced feed and too many months of losses, could force more out of business. Dave Solverson, vice-president of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association, said the costs of COOL have been substantial at many levels. Each province pays an allocation to cover their share of the association’s legal fees. About $2 million of checkoff money has been spent. The CCA has estimated that the law has cost $640 million, or $25 to $40 per head. The losses could be even higher under the revised rule if more plants decide they do not want to handle Canadian cattle. “This new rule could triple the annual costs,” said Solverson.

Wildlife damage an ongoing issue Cattle producers pass resolution | Deer, elk and wolves pressure grasslands and cattle herds BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

VERNON, B.C. — Doug Fossen used to think it was a treat to see an occasional elk crossing his range in the southern interior of British Columbia. Not anymore. “We are getting herds of 50 or 60,” he said. Exploding populations of deer, elk and predators are driving B.C. ranchers to distraction as they fight to protect their grasslands from ungulates and their calves from hungry wolves. Elk and deer raid haystacks, chew off the grass and wreck fences with little compensation to the rancher. “You don’t mind feeding a few but for these guys with 1,500 deer, that is a big problem,” Fossen said. He lives at Rock Creek, about 40 kilometres east of Osoyoos and chairs the B.C. Cattlemen Association’s environment committee. During the association’s annual

meeting in Vernon May 23-25, members passed resolutions in hopes of addressing the ongoing wildlife problem. Ranchers argue that compensation is inadequate and often comes too late. Considerable documentation is required to prove the affected loss was on farm land and a lack of local assessors leads to delays, said the BCCA. There is no compensation to ranchers unless there is substantial damage. If the crop can be reseeded in that year, there is no payment or coverage of costs for reseeding. Nor does the program cover year round damage. Many ranchers rely on crown leases and cannot turn cattle onto the range until the grass reaches a certain level of maturity. It is difficult for ranchers to assess when the grass is ready when wildlife are grazing it down. “It is getting harder and harder to use the resources on our crown

range,” Fossen said. On his range of about 9,000 acres, he would normally turn out about 160 cows but this year he is cutting back by half, partly because forest growth has cut into forage, and has also forced wildlife to move more into rangeland grasses and into riparian areas. The problem is common throughout the province, said Mike Rose of the Nicola Valley. Hundreds of white-tailed and mule deer have moved into his area and they are grazing hay meadows and eating stockpiled spring forage on private and leased land. “The whole country looks like a golf course,” said Rose. “We’ve got too damned much wildlife in this province and it is not being taken care of,” he said. R a n c h e r s a l s o d e b at e d a n d opposed the practice of relocating elk. They want a meaningful elk management plan. Many say experience shows that relocation does not work because

the elk move onto forage and cultivated crops and out compete other species, said Don Lancaster of the East Kootenay region where elk are plentiful. “Those elk were not indigenous to that area and we are upsetting the balance of nature,” he said. Members voted to petition the government to ensure affected ranchers are consulted before any relocation takes place. Before transplanting animals, the presence of indigenous species, forage supply and condition as well as range carrying capacity must be addressed. “It seems in the last 30 years the population has absolutely changed. With the management of the ungulate population there are no goal posts,”said David Haywood-Farmer, president of the BCCA. Ranchers match the number of cattle to what the range can support but in his opinion the government does not assess the carrying capacity for wildlife.

Owners eager to explain merits of mule over horse Healthy, low maintenance | Owner says mules are strong and sure-footed BY MARY MACARTHUR WESTERN PRODUCER

RED DEER, Alta. — Mule owners are just as stubborn as their animal’s reputation. There’s no turning back once they make the switch from horses. “They’re smarter than a horse and their strength is incomparable,” said Les Sjogren of Park Lake, Alta., who rode his 17-year-old mule, Katie, during a Mule and Donkey Association demonstration at the Mane Event held April 25-27 in Red Deer. “They’re more sure-footed than a horse, they outlast a horse by 10 years. They’re never sick and they never get lame and it takes a third less feed to maintain a mule.” It was not love at first sight between Sjogren and his mules, but the chemistry came together once he figured out how to work with them. “Don’t get into a battle with them or you’ll end up frustrated,” said Sjogren, who competes in reining, equitation and cutting shows with his mule, sometimes against horses and sometimes against other mules. It’s at those shows that people begin to see the versatility of mules. It’s one of the reasons Sjogren joined with other mule owners to put on the recent demonstration. Nicole Kroetsch of Edmonton brought her Warmblood mule to the demonstration, jumping it over

fences to show off its ability. Kroetsch is not sure what her mule’s lineage is, but believes it is the result of a warmblood mare and a mammoth jack stallion. Mules have horse mothers and donkey fathers. It’s Kroetsch’s first mule, and she doesn’t think she’ll return to riding horses. She had to learn new skills once she made the switch. Jumping with a mule is different than sitting on a horse because of its long, flat back. Terry Aris, who runs Tired Ass Ranch near Lundbreck, Alta., said he acquired his first mule 30 years ago but still has some horses. He uses an eight second rule to train mules. He pauses eight seconds at each step of training, lets the mule process what’s happening and then goes on to the next step. “You have to slow down and give them time to think,” said Aris, who had a four mule hitch at the Mane Event. Aris has used his fjord mules for raking and cutting hay, combined driving and demonstration shows. He said no one is neutral when it comes to mules. People love them or don’t like them. Aris knows which side he’s on. He said mules have more personality and are a lot more fun to be around. “We really enjoy them.” Sjogren said he has seen more mules going to the mountains as either pack animals or riding animals for their

calmness and surefootedness. “They don’t panic and they’ll watch themselves. With their little feet, they’ll pick their way through a trail.”

MORE ABOUT MULES • A mule is the offspring of a male donkey (a jack) and a female horse (a mare). Mules can be either male or female, but can’t reproduce. • Mules look similar to horses but have more endurance, a higher pain tolerance and greater physical strength for their size. • Mules have been labelled stubborn but it is the animals’ strong desire for self-preservation that may make them resist a command they think is dangerous.

• Mules and donkeys have a natural attraction to humans. When treated with patience and understanding, they learn to trust and obey. • Mules can go 24 hours without water and can carry about 150 pounds. • George Washington was an admirer of mules and was instrumental in securing imports from France and Spain. • The mule is the official state animal of Missouri.

Money woes cripple South Dakota beef plant Inability to buy cattle | The $100 million plant that opened last year needs $20 million in working capital BY ROBERT ARNASON



A South Dakota beef slaughter plant that opened in the fall is already laying off employees because it doesn’t have the necessary capital to buy cattle. Northern Beef Packers in Aberdeen, South Dakota, announced late last month it would lay off 108 of its 420 employees. The plant, which cost more than $100 million to build, is capable of processing 1,500 cattle per day, but is now killing 200 cattle per day from the Dakotas, Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota. It’s unclear if the privately held company is buying cattle from Canada. Northern Beef Packers didn’t respond to requests for an interview before Western Pro ducer deadlines. Rob Maddock, an associate professor of animal science with North Dakota State University who studies the meat processing business, said Northern Beef Packers doesn’t have enough money to buy cattle. U.S. rules stipulate that cattle must be paid for within 24 to 48 hours of a purchase. However, Maddock said it may take weeks for packers to receive payment for meat. “From the time you buy the cattle to the time you get paid for the meat, it could be three weeks or as much as 30 days.” High cattle prices are also aggravating the situation. A company that wants to slaughter 1,000 head per day would have to spend more than $7.5 million a week on cattle. “In the area (around the plant), a single animal costs, conservatively, $1,500,” Maddock said. “So, $1,500 times 1,000, that’s $1.5 million per day … if they wanted to

• Northern Beef Packers opened in Aberdeen, South Dakota, in the fall of 2012. • It is the first beef processing plant in about three decades to be built in the United States. • The plant cost an estimated $109 million to construct. It is the only sizable plant north of Nebraska. • The plant has a capacity of 1,500 head of cattle per day, based on a single eight-hour shift. • Oshik Song, a Korean businessperson, owns 41 percent of Northern Beef Packers. A group of Korean investors owns the remainder of the business. Sources: Northern Beef Packers and staff research

High cattle prices and meat prices are lagging … so packer margins are fairly tight.” Northern Beef Packers has been a controversial project since it was proposed in 2007. There have been dozens of contractor disputes, waste-water permit violations, delayed openings and a financial rescue by Korean investors in 2009. David Palmer, the company’s chief executive officer, said in late April that the plant will slaughter about 200 cattle per day until it raises an

additional $20 million in working capital. Aberdeen is in north-central South Dakota near the North Dakota border and was viewed as an ideal place to slaughter cattle raised and fed on the northern Plains. Tim Petry, a livestock marketing expert and NDSU agribusiness and applied economics professor, said most North Dakota cattle end up in slaughter plants 600 kilometres south.

“The bulk of the cattle fed in North Dakota would go to Nebraska.” For example, Tyson Foods operates a large beef plant in Dakota City, Neb., near Sioux Falls, Iowa. The plant employs 4,000 people and has a capacity of more than 7,000 cattle per day. Petry said Dakota ranchers could save significantly on shipping costs by selling cattle to Northern Beef Packers instead of to packers in Nebraska. He said it costs $50 per head to truck cattle to Nebraska from Carrington, N.D., which is located in the middle of the state. Maddock said reduced shipping costs benefit ranchers and feedlot businesses in the Dakotas but don’t boost Northern Beef Packers’ bottom line. “That is savings on the producer’s

end. It’s not going to help the plant a whole lot. They’re buying on whatever the market is.” Maddock didn’t want to speculate on the survival of Northern Beef Packers, saying meat packing is a risky business. “I hope they can make it. It’s nice to have a packing plant in the northern Plains,” he said. “But it’s going to take some very good management to keep that processing plant viable in the long term.” Petry said the company’s Korean ownership means it likely intends to export beef into the Asian market. The plant needs to increase production quickly, he added, even if the company receives a price premium from that market. “They have to get their kill (numbers) up or they can’t continue,” he said.


CFIA changes shift anthrax management to producers, vets ANIMAL HEALTH


The cost of laboratory testing and vaccinating will be producers’ responsibility


ecent changes to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s anthrax program will drastically affect the management of this disease on the Prairies. The CFIA will not investigate anthrax outbreaks, collect or test samples, quarantine properties, provide anthrax vaccine, compensate producers or supervise carcass dis-

posal and disinfection. These changes came into effect April 1. The CFIA says on its website that it is making these changes to modernize disease response and redistribute resources for foreign and emerging animal disease threats. No doubt, the change also reflects the current federal government’s budget-cutting policies. Anthrax will still be considered a federally reportable disease, which means that suspected cases still have to be reported to the CFIA. Additionally, the World Organization for Animal Health will continue to receive annual reports of anthrax in Canada. Anthrax is a highly fatal disease caused by the bacterium bacillus anthracis. Spores are especially adapted to long-term environmental survival and can remain infective for decades in certain soil types. A variety of animals are susceptible to anthrax, but cattle, bison, sheep, goats and horses are most commonly affected in Canada.

Anthrax is a zoonotic disease, meaning people can get the infection from animals. People most often become infected through contact with diseased animals. Breaks in the skin provide a route of entry for the bacterium. Eating undercooked, anthrax-infected meat is another possible route of infection. Powdered anthrax spores were famously distributed in letters in the United States in 2001, and the bacter ium is considered to be among the most dangerous of biological weapons. During the past decade, there have been sporadic cases of anthrax among intravenous cocaine drug users in Europe, presumably from contaminated drugs. Carnivores such as dogs, cats and lions can become infected from consuming herbivore carcasses that died from anthrax. The disease in carnivores is typically less severe. Carnivores and scavengers are thought to be important in spreading the disease because they open carcasses,

which causes anthrax bacteria to form highly resistant spores. Animals eat or breathe in the spores from soil. Once in the body, the spores germinate and begin to rapidly divide. They release massive amounts of toxins, which quickly cause the death of the animal. Illness is short and many affected animals are found dead with no history of previous clinical signs. Anthrax should be suspected in any animal found suddenly dead or those with bloody discharge from body openings. Vaccination is considered to be effective. Vaccine recommendations and purchasing can be made through herd veterinarians. Management of the disease will fall on producers and their herd veterinarians if there is another large anthrax outbreak, such as the one in 2006 that caused more than 800 animal deaths. Producers will have to undertake the extensive work required to properly dispose of carcasses by burning

or burial and disinfect contaminated soil and equipment. Additionally, the recommended personal protective equipment necessary to minimize the risk to people who handle carcasses is extensive and may not be readily available in rural communities. The cost of laboratory testing and vaccinating will also be the responsibility of producers. Anthrax outbreaks are associated with flooding and wet pastures followed by dry, hot weather. Other risk factors include high stocking density and short grass. Hay that contains soil can also be a source of infection. Given our heavy snowfall last winter and flooding this spring, an anthrax outbreak may be on the agenda for this summer, and the CFIA will not be there to help. Dr. Jamie Rothenburger is a veterinary pathology resident at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Saskatchewan.

Ram prices a potential sign of better market Breeding stock | Average ram prices were down from last year, but one seller is hopeful of market improvement BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Prices for sheep breeding stock are down slightly compared to last year but surprisingly good considering the low lamb market, says recent ram sale consignor and sheep buyer Warren Moore of Stavely, Alta. The seventh annual Pound Maker ram sale May 23 in Fort Macleod, Alta., averaged $754 per head on 105 rams, down $112 from last year when the average was $866. The top selling ram, at $1,800, was a Rambouillet consigned by Moore and purchased by Brian Franz of Irvine, Alta. Seven breeds, mostly Suffolk, were on offer and only Rambouillet had a higher average than last year, $764 compared to $648 in 2012. The 63 Suffolks averaged $790, ($913 in 2012), nine North County Cheviots averaged $786 ($1,019), nine Dorsets averaged $675 ($827),

six Hampshires averaged $512 ($818) and two Coloured and two Charollais averaged $613 ($725) and $600 respectively. No Charollais were offered last year. Consignors included Moore and his wife, Norine, Bert and Andrelei Grisnich of Fort Macleod, Andy and Frances Pittman of Picture Butte, Alta., and Freda Horton of Keremeos, B.C. “We were very pleased with the results,” said Moore in a later interview. “If we didn’t know what market lamb prices were, we’d be very happy with the sale ... and now we’re delighted with the sale,” he added, noting lamb prices are about half what they were at sale time last year. Lambs are running at about 90 cents per pound now, and feeders at $1.15 per lb. Last year at this time, lambs were bringing $1.80 to $1.82 per lb. and feeders were selling at $2.25 per lb. Moore said last week’s ram prices

The sale average on Rambouillets was $764. The top seller was also of that breed, going for $1,800. show lamb producers are still willing to invest in genetics and build their flocks despite the recent plummet in lamb prices. He attributes the price drop to about five different factors, among them the high retail price last year that made some consumers balk.

The U.S. drought forced producers there to dump animals onto the market and parity of the Canadian and U.S. dollar resulted in cheaper lambs imported from the U.S., Moore said. High feed prices also affected the economics of production. “With $6 barley, it’s hard to feed a

low priced lamb. It costs you more to put a pound of grain on a lamb than the pound of lamb is worth.” Last year’s high prices also encouraged Canadian producers to retain lambs for breeding herd expansion, shorting the market and driving prices up further. “There is a global lamb oversupply and a global low price of lamb,” said Moore. Despite that, Canada produces only about half the lamb consumed domestically. Much of the rest comes from the United States, New Zealand and Australia. Looking ahead, Moore said American producers might be keeping more replacements this year now that the drought has eased and feed prices are likely to be lower. Higher fuel prices can also discourage imports from the U.S. “Will it get back to where it was? No, I don’t think so, not for awhile,” Moore said.


Hog producers warned about spread of costly diarrhea virus BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Hog farmers facing a diarrhea storm blowing in from the U.S. Midwest should batten the hatches and prepare for heavy weather. Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus c a n s w e e p t h ro u g h h e rd s a n d regions if not controlled. Swine health experts say the impact can be terrible. “It certainly takes a round out of nursing piglets and can kill quite a few nursing piglets,” said Harvey Wagner, a biosecurity specialist with Sask Pork. According to the Canadian Swine Health Board, PEDV can kill up to 40 percent of nursing piglets. Growing pigs and sows are set back by the disease, which causes watery diarrhea because the pig’s digestive system is

unable to absorb nutrients. PEDV is part of the coronavirus family and is distinct from transmissible gastroenteritis. It has not been seen in North America, but has been breaking out in herds in Europe and Asia in recent years, with many cases in China since 2010. Up to 100 percent of a herd’s pigs can become infected. The disease spreads easily, which is why pig health specialists are worried about the outbreak. The first cases in the U.S. broke out in the Midwest, with many farms in Iowa and Minnesota affected. Not only is that on Manitoba’s doorstep, but the hog industry is directly connected from Iowa to Manitoba. Many farms in Iowa and Minnesota buy Manitoba-born piglets, so pig-hauling trucks are constantly moving up and down Highway 75 to

and from the U.S. That makes it easy to transfer the disease from south to north. Even farmers who aren’t involved in cross-border pig trade should be careful about the trucks that come onto their farms. “You’d be really amazed, when they do a trace back, where those trucks have been,” said Wagner. Prairie pig trucks constantly move from farm to farm, farm to slaughter plant and the Prairies to the U.S. Midwest, and most of them come into close contact with other pig-hauling trucks. PEDV is spread mostly by infected manure, so the best control for farmers is to ensure that trucks are cleaned and disinfected before they come onto their farms. “All transportation vehicles should be cleaned,” said Wagner.

As well, on-farm biosecurity measures should be reinforced. “Keep your foot coverings clean,” said Wagner. “It’s just general awareness of where you’ve been.” No one knows where the disease came from. The first incidents were not tightly connected ,so it’s possible PEDV was spread by wildlife, Wagner said. The Prairies west of the Red River Valley are fortunate because of the vast spaces between barns. Unlike Iowa, southern Minnesota and southeastern Manitoba, the region d o e s n ’ t g e n e r a l l y h av e b a r n s within a few kilometres of each other. “We have the advantage of distance in most parts of the Prairies, in weste r n Ma n i t o ba, Sa skatch ewa n, Alberta, a lot of space between our

farms,” said Wagner. Immunity develops quickly, within two to three weeks, once the disease gets into a herd. It might take a couple of incidents for all the pigs to be exposed and become immune, the Canadian Swine Health Board says. However, avoiding infection in the first place is the most important protection, Wagner said. Small amounts of the virus can survive if trucks aren’t dried when they are cleaned and disinfected. That makes control hard in the late fall, winter and early spring. However, North America has just entered the hot months, so vehicles can be thoroughly dried if farmers and hog transporters are serious about control. “It’s mostly in your own hands,” said Wagner.

In a recent conference call with investors, chief financial officer Larry Stranghoener said the company was postponing Phase 2 of its potash expansion project. Phase 2 of the $6 billion expansion project involved increasing production capacity by one million tonnes each at the company’s Saskatchewan mines in Belle Plaine and Colonsay. Stranghoener said the project was being put on hold because of unfavourable market conditions and rising labour costs. Mosaic intends to wait a year or two in hopes that labour costs will drop and that there will be more clarity about the longterm supply picture in the potash industry. Mosaic’s announcement comes on the heels of Yara International saying it was rethinking plans to add 1.3 million tonnes of urea production capacity to its plant near Belle Plaine., Sask. “The price or cost increase in Canada is above what we had expected, and we are now negotiating with the different contractors to see how we potentially can get the costs down,” said Yara president Jorgen Ole Haslestad. “If we are not able to make it commercially viable, then we will not build.” K+S Potash Canada is also facing delays and rising costs on the Legacy mine it is building near Moose Jaw, Sask. The company issued a news release in April saying it had pushed back the planned opening of the plant until the summer of 2016 from the original target of the end of 2015. The budget for the two million tonne mine has escalated to $4.1 billion from $3.25 billion. Brazilian mining company Vale SA announced last summer it was postponing a $3 billion project to build a potash mine near Kronau, Sask., capable of producing 2.9 million tonnes annually. There is also speculation that the biggest Saskatchewan mine project may be shelved. A Globe & Mail business columnist said BHP Billiton’s new boss, Andrew Mackenzie, sounds like he is backing away from the $14 billion project to build the world’s largest potash mine in Jansen, Sask.

K&S Potash Canada began work on its Legacy solution mine north of Moose Jaw, Sask., more than a year ago. Increasing costs will delay completion by six months until 2016. This photo shows a drilling rig at the site in 2012. | K&S POTASH PHOTO recently said new construction projects such as the mine proposed by BHP Billiton do not make economic sense in today’s marketplace. Saskatchewan energy and resources minister Tim McMillan said the province is aware of the business community’s concerns over escalating labour costs. “I meet with many players in the oil and gas and mining sector and the labour shortage is something that is raised with me on a regular basis,” he said. “When you see wages rising the way they have in our province, that’s a good thing, but it also effects investment decisions.” Saskatchewan’s average hourly

wage for construction workers has risen 25 percent over the last six years compared to a 15 percent increase across Canada, but it remains lower than the national average. The average hourly wage for a construction worker in Saskatchewan in March 2013 was $25.78 compared to $26.54 for Canada and $26.06 in the United States. Saskatchewan has the lowest unemployment rate in the country. The province is trying to recruit workers from other provinces as well as further afield. “We are maximizing our Saskatchewan immigrant nominee program and working with the federal govern-


25 percent

ment to enhance it,” said McMillan. On May 21, the federal government increased the program’s cap for Saskatchewan by 450 to 4,450 per year. He said the government is also doing everything it can to address the skilled labour shortage at home. Since forming government, the Saskatchewan Party has invested $4.2 billion on post-secondary education, a 40 percent increase since 2007-08. It has also invested in training and development programs for workers. The provincial NDP was contacted for this story but did not respond. McMillan remains hopeful that the projects that are being re-evaluated will eventually come to fruition. “It’s possible that they’re looking to time their expansions when other expansions are winding down.” Saskatchewan’s employment demand is forecast to peak in 2015, based on expected construction projects, after which labour supply and demand should be in closer balance, according to the Saskatchewan Construction Association.

Monsanto in Ukraine Monsanto plans to build a non-GM corn seed facility in Ukraine, one of the world’s leading producers of the grain. The cost is expected to be about $140 million. Seed from the operation will go to Ukraine’s farmers who produced about 21 million tonnes of corn last year. Ukrainian laws bar local farmers from growing genetically modified crops.

RM still optimistic T despite BHP delays Jansen potash mine | Municipality continues to plan for development while company re-evaluates project BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Construction continues on the BHP Billiton potash mine site near Jansen, Sask., despite speculation that the project won’t receive board approval. Jerry McGrath, reeve of the Rural Municipality of Jansen, said the region is upbeat about the project despite the uncertainty. “The independent studies they got show there’s going to be about 5,000 people moving into this region,” he said last week. “It’s going to be a big boost for the towns, the villages, the city of Humboldt and the rural municipalities. There’s not a meeting goes by now that we haven’t got an application or somebody’s looking at a subdivision. Some may be speculative, but there’s definitely lots going on.” The work camp, which Atco is building complete with water and sewer systems, is expected to be ready for some residents by July 1. Construction on the rest of the rooms will begin later this summer and be completed during the first quarter of next year. Eight kilometres of road south from the mine site to Highway 16 will be paved this spring under an agreement with the RMs of Jansen and Prairie Rose. A 22 km stretch of road north of the site will be built this year and paved in 2014. “When you’re out here, there is quite a bit going on,” McGrath said. However, the project is still considered to be at the feasibility study stage, and many have suggested it won’t proceed despite the activity. Potash prices have fallen and other companies have shelved or delayed expansion plans. Chris Ryder, BHP’s vice-president of external affairs for diamonds and specialty products, said the board will go through its own decisionmaking process. In the meantime, BHP is spending a lot of money at the site. The mine was originally designed to produce two million tonnes of potash per year with plans to eventually expand to eight million tonnes. However, plans now call for the mine to initially produce four million tonnes a year.


“You need a larger mine that’s going to be lower on the cost curve to justify the capital cost,” Ryder said. The change has resulted in more engineering work and cost estimates, which take time. “Additional time will allow further underground development, which will result in higher initial production rates once Jansen is brought on production,” said a company statement. The detailed engineering has been done for the underground work, and excavation of the shaft is underway. “It does take years to build a conventional potash mine, especially one the size that we’re building,” Ryder said. Nearly 400 people are working at the site and work camp. BHP has also been active in local communities. When fire destroyed the rink in LeRoy a few weeks ago, employees of the company and its contractors helped fight the fire and erected a safety fence around the site the next day. McGrath said that is characteristic of the relationship between communities and BHP. He said the delays in formal approval are concerning, but he believes the mine will open. “I feel confident, but I guess I’m in the middle of the whole thing here, so sometimes you can’t see the trees for the forest.” McGrath said the four RMs, seven towns and villages and the city of Humboldt, which belong to the Mid Sask Municipal Alliance, are in the final stages of developing a regional plan that addresses planning and development, zoning and building bylaws. He said the delay has been good from that perspective because it allowed the area a chance to get ready. The BHP project is the first new conventional potash mine to be built in 40 years. Local governments weren’t as involved in the earlier projects.

ax season is not a happy one for most Canadians. We fret our way through the entire process, generating a significant amount of stress along the way. Now that the tax season is over, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. To make future tax seasons less stressful, start today with these important but simple tax planning tips. An important step in planning for the coming year is looking back at past tax returns. If you use the services of a tax professional, they should review past tax returns and notices of assessment and offer suggestions to optimize your tax situation for future years. It’s easy to put off managing your finances, especially when there’s no looming deadline. Trying to remember all of the expenses you incurred

doing so risks overlooking a legitimate business expense or inadvertently claiming a personal expense as a business deduction. Open a separate bank account for your farm and apply for a new dedicated credit card to be used only for farm operation expenses. You likely gave the government an interest-free loan this past year if you received a big refund from last year’s taxes. An employer may be withholding too much tax if you or your spouse have off-farm income. You might be able to have less of your income withheld at source to increase your paycheque and put your money to work on your farm business sooner. Effective tax planning is more than simply claiming your basic deductions. Take some time to ensure: • You’ve chosen the most appropriate business structure for your company. • Each of your investments are taxoptimized. • Your retirement and your estate are protected. • Your children’s education is planned for. This list may seem daunting, but with help from experienced financial and estate planners, you’ll be in good shape for next tax season.
