GM wheat discovery prompts calls for changes

Seeding progressing well in most areas despite late start BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Early and widespread concerns over a cool and belated spring seeding season have mostly been forgotten in Saskatchewan, although farmers in some areas are still struggling to get their crops seeded between a maze of expanding potholes and recurring spring showers. As of early June, producers across much of the province were on pace to finish spring seeding within a normal timeframe, said provincial crop specialist Grant McLean with Saskatchewan Agriculture. But wet conditions persist in some areas and many farms in southern Saskatchewan could be forced to set aside more acres than expected for summerfallow or winter wheat production. “As a whole, we’re doing quite well when you consider where we were three weeks ago,” McLean said late last week.

Unwelcome news | GM wheat found in an Oregon field catches industry by surprise BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Players in the Canadian farm industry are calling for everything from a new grain handling system to a complete ban on genetically modified crops in the wake of another GM contamination incident. The U.S. Department of Agriculture confirmed last week that Roundup Ready wheat volunteers were found growing in an 80-acre field in Oregon. The news caught everybody by surprise because Monsanto abandoned its Roundup Ready wheat program in 2005. The company claims its process for closing out the program and disposing of the material was “rigorous, well-documented and audited.” GM wheat has not been approved for sale or for planting in any country in the world. Japan and South Korea have suspended imports of soft white wheat from the U.S. and the European Union announced it will be testing all wheat shipments for GM content once a test is developed. The Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN) said the contamination incident was alarming but not unprecedented. “Canadian farmers are still eliminating GM flax contamination that was discovered 10 years after farmers successfully stopped GM flax from entering the market,” said CBAN co-ordinator Lucy Sharratt. She accused the federal government of not caring about the economic impacts of contamination. “We need a moratorium on all new GM crop approvals and field tests until the contamination risk is adequately recognized in regulation and the environmental, economic and social impacts are fully evaluated,” Sharratt said in a press release.

Farm groups react Trish Jordan, spokesperson for Monsanto Canada, said that is an over-reaction to an isolated case in another country where few facts have been uncovered. She said the ability to conduct research is critical to bringing forward new traits and there is no reason to restrict the sale of those traits if they are proven safe through regulatory oversight. Kevin Bender, past president of the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association, also doesn’t want to see a moratorium on GM crop research. The technology has allowed farmers to reduce tillage and pesticides and increase yields. Future traits could result in wheat resistant to ergot or fusarium. “There is a lot of benefits to farmers and to consumers,” he said. Jordan said the comparison to the 2009 Triffid flax incident was unfair. That crop was developed in the early days of the biotechnology industry by an independent researcher at the University of Saskatchewan. “The protocols were significantly more stringent in the case of wheat trials,” she said. Monsanto ran hundreds of Roundup Ready wheat trials in both Canada and the U.S. between 1998 and 2005. The last field trial in Oregon happened in 2001. Triffid flax caused the near destruction of the European market when it was detected in shipments of Canadian flax. The USDA said there is no proof that Monsanto’s Roundup Ready wheat has entered the stream of commerce. Monsanto said there is “considerable reason” to believe the presence of the trait is very limited and that it did not result from seed left in the soil or from pollen flow. The company returned to the wheat breeding business in 2009 and is once again working on GM wheat, including herbicide tolerant wheat that was field tested in the U.S. last year. Terry Boehm, president of the National Farmers Union, said the Oregon incident highlights the need to revisit laws surrounding who pays for damage caused by the technology in the form of decreased prices and lost markets. “Farmers have always had to shoulder the market issues with the introduction of these products,” he said. Boehm believes seed technology

companies and the governments that approve their products should be picking up the tab. “The liability piece is sorely missing,” he said. Jordan said it is far too early to be seeking changes to regulations and laws. The USDA and Monsanto have only just started their separate investigations into the contamination incident. “I think it would be premature to start calling for these sorts of extreme measures that would certainly put a damper on innovation,” she said. Jeffrey Smyth, an Ontario-based international advisor to the largest baking and milling companies in Japan, hopes the Oregon case will be a catalyst for a shift to a segregated wheat handling system in North America. “The current system can’t handle that so we should be taking the time now to prepare for a stream of wheat for Europe and Japan and other countries that don’t accept GM,” he said. That is the only solution because seed technology companies are pressing forward with GM wheat and there is no reduction in opposition to the crop in markets like Japan. “People have not been prepared to accept how serious a matter this is,” said Smyth. “There is still a lot of people who say, ‘Oh well, the Japanese will buy GM. They will get over it. The price will be lower, so housewives will buy it.’ That just isn’t the case and I think we see that from this accident.” He was expecting the issue to come to a head when some of the new research on GM wheat around the world was ready to be commercialized. “The fact that this has happened in Oregon is very unexpected. Everyone thought that we were not going to have to deal with this for some more years,” said Smyth. “This is exactly the kind of accident that many people have been worrying about and it has happened.” He has spent the past year urging wheat groups in Canada and the United States to start preparing for the introduction of genetically modified wheat. Smyth hopes the North American wheat industry finally recognizes that one of its biggest customers simply will not tolerate GM wheat. “It’s not something that’s going to go away and the Japanese can always go back to eating rice,” said Smyth.

Federal rail bill disappoints Bill C-52 | MPs vote to pass Fair Rail Freight Service Act amid criticism from opposition BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

In the wee hours of May 30, Conservative MP Pierre Lemieux finally got to have his say about government legislation that gives shippers more market power in dealing with railways. Debate on Bill C-52, the Fair Rail Freight Service Act, was grinding to an end at 12:40 a.m. when Lemieux — the parliamentary secretary to agriculture minister Gerry Ritz — rose as one of the last speakers. The government had imposed a limit on debate and despite opposition complaints that the legislation did not give shippers enough power, all MPs voted later that day to approve the legislation and send it to the Senate for final approval this month. Lemieux, an eastern Ontario rural MP, said the bill will help correct the current market imbalance between commodity shippers and railways. “Our government is committed to ensuring that all shippers, including grain shippers, can negotiate agreements that bring greater clarity and predictability on service,” he said. The legislation will allow shippers to appeal to the Canadian Transportation Agency for an imposed service agreement with penalties for railway violations if a satisfactory commercial agreement between shipper and railway cannot be negotiated. Each violation of promised service per for mance could result in a $100,000 penalty, with the money going to the government. Redress and compensation for producers would have to come from a court judgment against the carriers at extra legal costs against the shippers. Lemieux said the possibility for hefty fines will make it more likely the legislation and court action will not be needed. “This provision (appeal to the CTA) will be a powerful tool for our agricultural sector since it will strongly encourage shippers and rail companies alike to negotiate a commercial agreement,” he said. “The Fair Rail Freight Service Act will help farmers grow their business.” Opposition MPs, while ultimately supporting the bill, used the final debate to lament the fact that the Conservative government for a record 37th time imposed restrictions on the length of parliamentary debate. And they continued to insist that Conservatives should have accepted proposals from shippers and the Opposition to strengthen shipper rights in the bill. Opposition House leader Nathan Cullen followed Lemieux with praise for his fellow New Democrats and criticism of Conservatives’ refusal to accept amendments. “New Democrats have stood in their places and said that while they will not sacrifice the good for the per-

The legislation does not fully achieve the objectives that the shipping community had been hoping for. They have been waiting for a long time. RALPH GOODALE LIBERAL MP

fect, this is an opportunity for the Conservatives to continue to learn that they are not the experts in all things, that they should once in a while put a little water in their wine and have a little humility,” he said. Brandon, Man. Conservative Merv Tweed, chair of the Commons agriculture committee, said that despite opposition criticism, the legislation is widely supported by producers. “Most importantly, the (bill) would give shippers new tools to level the playing field in their relationship with the railways,” he said. “The fundamental change would help to ensure the smooth and uninterrupted delivery of Canadian products to our customers.” Regina Liberal Ralph Goodale told the House that while Liberals would support the bill, it could have been much better. “There is significant disappointment not just in the House but in the shipping community,” Goodale said. “The legislation does not fully achieve the objectives that the shipping community had been hoping for. They have been waiting for a long time.” In fact, when the Conservativedominated Commons transport committee rejected all opposition amendments, many of them based on proposals from the Coalition of Rail Shippers, CRS chair Bob Ballantyne said he was disappointed. However, he said Bill C-52 should be passed because even in its flawed state, it is better than nothing. “I think there is a lot of disappointment and a lot of skepticism about how effective this will be,” Ballantyne said. “We’ll see but it’s all we’ve got at the moment so I think my members think we should support it but with disappointment.” The debate now switches to the Senate where the coalition likely will suggest changes. However, with little time to consider the bill before Parliament adjourns for the summer in late June, Conservative senators are unlikely to engage in extended debate or support amendments. The government likely will end the current parliamentary session during the summer, returning in the autumn with a throne speech and a new agenda. All legislation not passed into law by then would die.

Soggy in Sask. » CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE “We’re certainly not as far advanced as we were last year but we’re pretty close.” With some farmers finished and others still pushing ahead, the province’s grain and oilseed producers now have differing opinions about what type of weather would be most beneficial for the province’s 2013 crop. In areas where spring seeding is mostly complete, producers would welcome a rain. But elsewhere, sunshine and drying winds are needed. In areas north of Prince Albert, northwest of Saskatoon and southeast of Regina, wet conditions persist and recurring showers over the past two weeks have hampered seeding progress. And in northwestern Saskatchewan — an area that covers tens of thousands of square kilometres — it is estimated that seven percent of the region’s total acreage will go unseeded due to excess moisture. Further south, in a large area that stretches east and west along Saskatchewan’s border with Montana

and North Dakota, conditions are variable and seeding has been delayed by recurring rains. “The wettest spots, I think, are right along the U.S. border in southeastern Saskatchewan and also in the Regina Plains,” McLean said. “There are certainly pockets … where they have had wet conditions for the past couple of years and it continues to be a challenge for them to get into those fields in a timely manner, but as a whole, I think most producers in the province are quite pleased with the progress they’ve made.” According to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s most recent crop report issued May 30, many areas along the Saskatchewan-U.S. border had received 50 millimetres of rain since April 1 while others had received 100 mm or more. In some areas south of Yorkton, 100 to 150 mm of rain have been recorded over the last two months. Wayne Amos, owner of Big Dog Seeds near Oxbow, Sask, said seeding progress and moisture conditions are highly variable in his area, depending on rainfall amounts and local drainage conditions. “It’s variable but yes, we are quite

wet,” Amos said late last month. “Our intention at this point is to complete our seeding but that’s going to be subject to weather,” he added. “If we get (any more rain) it’s certainly going to be a big setback.” Amos said producers in some parts of southeastern Saskatchewan are beginning to reassess their spring seeding plans. Many farmers have yet to take delivery of certified seed orders and demand for seed oats is increasing. Supplies of certified seed oats are tight in the southeast, he added. Elsewhere, farmers have reconsidered their earlier seeding plans and are now gearing up for an increase in winter wheat acreage. Amos is still unsure how much winter wheat he will be planting. “Any acres that don’t go in … we’ll certainly plan on putting those acres, or at least some of those acres, into winter wheat but at this point we don’t even want to go there,” he said. “Right now, we just want to try and remain optimistic and our intention is to get all of our acres in but we will reach a point here, based on the calendar, where people will have to consider their options.”




The Canadian Lamb Producers Co-operative hopes to start buying lambs this fall. | FILE PHOTO


National lamb co-op aims to stabilize pricing Members sign for three years | The co-op will arrange transportation and slaughter and develop its own product brand BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

A new national co-operative plans to buy and market lambs from across Canada and improve returns to sheep producers. The Canadian Lamb Producers Co-operative last week announced it had approvals from the Canadian Securities Administration to proceed with national co-op operations, a process that has been in the works for about three years. The co-op is now forming a subsidiary, the Canadian Lamb Company, as the marketing arm for lamb provided by co-op members. Terry Ackerman, chief executive officer for the co-op, said about 200 producers from seven provinces have already sent requests for information. The goal is to sign up 650 to 1,000 producers over the next three years. Pat Smith of Steinbach, Man., one of the largest lamb producers in Canada, is president of the producerowned co-op and will also chair the marketing company board. Head office for the co-op is in Saskatoon and the marketing office will be in Guelph, Ont. To join, producers must buy a membership for $500 and sign on for three years. There is a one-time fee of

$30 for each lamb they commit to selling to the co-op, and producers will be limited to shipping a number of lambs equivalent to 25 percent of their ewe flock. For example, producers with 1,000 ewes would be able to ship a maximum of 250 lambs to the co-op. “We’re not looking for all the lamb producers in the world. We need commercial producers,” said Ackerman. “If you know the name of every lamb, you’re probably not for us.” The co-op intends to start buying lambs this fall. Ackerman said the pricing model will be based on the average price for each weight category in Cookstown, Brussels and Kitchener, Ont., plus five cents per pound live weight. “We want it to be transparent,” he said. “It’s based on a simple formula that producers can check online.” The price paid to producers will include shipping. The co-op will not own any infrastructure and will arrange transportation and slaughter at federally approved plants. The co-op has an agreement with one slaughter plant in Ontario and is working with an Edmonton plant that is expected to get federal certification this fall. The co-op initiative was spearheaded by the Saskatchewan Sheep Development Board.


“We’re excited that we finally got there, that we got our approvals and stuff in place. We’re looking forward to moving forward,” said SSDB executive director Gord Schroeder. “We were working on something like this a number of years ago and then we needed a wider base. We needed more producers. It couldn’t just be in Saskatchewan. So this is pushing it to the next level.” Schroeder said producers themselves devised the cost structure and share price. Sheep producers have been suffering from a drastic drop in prices, which are about half what they were in 2011-12. Prairie producers also suffer from the “western discount,” a term for the lower prices typically received for lambs compared to those in eastern Canada. Herman Bouw, chair of the Manitoba Sheep Association, said when he heard about the co-op idea several

years ago, it sounded almost too good to be true. However, he has gained confidence in the concept and is encouraged by Smith’s involvement. “I think what it does for Manitoba sheep producers is it levels the playing field a little, because the markets are typically either east or west,” said Bouw, who farms with his sons near Anola, Man., and has 330 ewes. He and his sons anticipate a significant cash advantage because the coop pays the freight and there will be no sales commission. Ronald den Broeder, chair of Alberta Lamb Producers, said the co-op may become a useful tool to obtain stable pricing. “If they are able to pull it off … it might actually work out,” he said. Bouw said the marketing arm of the co-op will be a major benefit. “(Sheep farmers) are good at production and not so good at marketing. We’re just glad to deliver them someplace and let somebody else market them. To have someone who’s going to be actively doing the marketing makes a lot of sense.” Ackerman said the co-op’s marketing arm will develop its own brand and products designed to make full use of the carcass. The lamb company has licensed 12 formulas including lamb kabobs,

meatballs, ready to eat meals and lamb hamburgers. Prime cuts will also be part of the array. Ackerman said the marketing arm will pursue both domestic and export markets for Canadian lamb, and has already been approached by interested parties in the U.S., Asia, England and New Zealand. He said the co-op has also applied for funding through the federal western diversification department to implement an electronic carcass grading system. Working with the Agriculture Canada research centre in Lacombe, Alta., the co-op wants full traceability, with carcass information available to producers so they can improve their genetics and production. Schroeder said the co-op hopes to have the grading system in place by fall 2014, but that will depend on funding. Once in place, the system would provide financial incentive to produce high quality lambs through price premiums of up to 16 percent. Now that the lamb co-op has broken barriers for national-scale coops rather than provincial ones, Ackerman said other commodities have indicated their interest. Pork, beef, vegetable and fruit producer groups have been in contact. “The spotlight is on us,” said Ackerman. “The precedent’s been set.”


Proposed hog code places emphasis on quality of life BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

• Canada’s draft pig code radically updates many hog farming production systems and procedures and addresses most of the contentious issues that have enveloped the industry in recent years. Some contentious practices will be banned if the code is approved, while others will be maintained and have been given support. The major changes and issues addressed include: • Gestation stalls in existing barns will be eliminated by 2024. • Any barn built after July 1, 2014 must employ group housing for gestating sows. • Stalls can be used for a 28-day period after sow insemination,

• • •

plus up to seven more days as sows are moved into open pens. Pain control must be applied when castrating and tail docking piglets. Piglet teeth removal should only be done for aggressive animals. Sick and injured pigs must be dealt with quickly. Euthanasia methods are specified for specific ages of pig. Blunt force trauma for piglets, including “thumping” them on concrete floors, is allowed and supported. Gunshot euthanasia for piglets is banned. Gas euthanasia for most older pigs is not allowed. Boars cannot be injured, as with “boar-bashing,” in order to stop them fighting during transport.

The code, which entered a 60-day comment period on June 1, contains

a sweeping set of recommendations and mandates on all the significant practices employed in farming. It was formulated by the National Farm Animal Care Council, an organization that contains representatives of many groups including farmers, animal welfare organizations, retailers and consumers. The present code was written in 1993 and was based on research, experience and assumptions of that time. The proposed code places much emphasis upon a pig’s quality of life, as opposed to the more mechanistic elements of animal welfare, such as the presence or absence of measurable signs of stress. For instance, the code if passed will require producers to provide “enrichment” elements to all pig housing structures so that the pigs have a

more stimulating environment. Another change in emphasis in the code is a heavier reliance on many measures being listed as “requirements” rather than “recommendations.” In most areas there are some basic requirements that producers will be compelled to follow, as well as best practices listed afterwards. The present code has a bigger emphasis on recommendations. In the draft code’s introduction, the committee notes that the focus is on achieving good animal welfare, but there is still lots of room for farmers to achieve that in their own ways. “As a guiding principle, requirements are intended to be outcome or animal-based, as they are most directly linked to animal welfare, and can be applied in a wide range of ani-

mal production systems,” says the introduction. “Since requirements will often state the necessary outcome, the producer has the flexibility to determine how the outcomes can be achieved using individual husbandry and management systems.” The advent of the new pig code has gathered lots of interest because of the campaigns against gestation stalls and the exposes of pig production methods by activists in recent years. But other livestock industries will also need to grapple with changing requirements in new codes, as a number of code revisions are scheduled to be completed in the near future.

Stock Growers remain influential Group celebrates 100 years and the members that make them strong BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

One of the oldest agricultural associations in Saskatchewan celebrates its 100th anniversary next week. The Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association will meet in the place where it all began — Moose Jaw — and recognize its heritage beginning with a 10-team ranch rodeo competition and barn dance. The annual convention will follow. Murray McGillivray, who was president from 1980 to 1982, said the voluntary, membership-based organization has had its ups and downs over 100 years but prevailed thanks to the cowboys who made it a priority. “I think they’ll be around for quite a while because of the principle of the people, the core people,” he said. “And they have pretty deep roots.” Men who wanted to make sure governments kept ranchers’ interests in mind when drafting legislation formed the SSGA in June 1913. The issues of the day included leases and taxes; those would recur over the years. For the first half-century, the office of the SSGA tended to move with the secretary. When Don Perrin of Maple Creek, Sask., took over in the 1960s, the organization established the small town as its base until the permanent move to Regina in 1981. “When I moved the office from Swift Current I moved a bank account of $2.84 and less than 200 members,” Perrin recalled. “When I left we had a reserve of more than $100,000, and counting affiliates from the breed associations we represented 6,000 producers.” The SSGA became the voice for cow-calf producers but one of the main criticisms has always been that it only represents the “big” ranches of the south. McGillivray said he isn’t sure why the membership didn’t grow in the northern half of the agricultural belt. During his term he travelled to 32 different communities, mostly in the north, but made few inroads. Conventions continue to be held mainly in the south where the membership base is located. “The facts are that, yes, there are some big ranches in the southwest but even in my time they didn’t control the cattle numbers in Saskatchewan,” he said. “There was that stigma that haunted (the SSGA), that we were just a big cattle outfit. I was not a big cattleman at the time.” Many SSGA members saw the advent of the Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association in the mid-2000s as a threat. All producers who pay checkoff are members by virtue of those payments, and the SCA took control of the checkoff from the SSGA. However, the SSGA remains influential with government as it enters its second century retaining one of its original goals. FOR A RELATED STORY, SEE PAGE 80

Reseeding rampant as winter wheat fails in western Manitoba Weather takes toll | Province estimates 75 to 80 percent must be reseeded in southwest BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

It was painfully obvious to Garth Butcher when the snow finally melted this spring that his winter wheat didn’t survive the dry fall and long, cold winter. He thinks most of the crop probably died before winter because his fields were virtually barren of vegetation in May. “We had large areas in our fields that were large bare areas,” said Butcher, who seeded 500 acres of winter wheat last fall on his farm near Birtle, Man. “I mean, well over half of the field. The odd plant came up, but nothing you could visualize from a distance…. Out of 500 acres we only had one small field that was better than what I’m describing.” Butcher reseeded all 500 acres of h i s w i nt e r w h e at t h i s s p r i n g because there was no chance of harvesting a crop. He isn’t alone. Many growers in western Manitoba had to reseed

winter wheat in May because the crop wasn’t viable. “There is reseeding occurring throughout the province, but the southwest region and western areas of the central region seem to have a higher concentration of winter wheat acres that are being reseeded,” said Pam de Rocquigny, feedgrains specialist with Manitoba Agriculture. The department estimates that 75 to 80 percent of the winter wheat crop has been or is being reseeded in southwestern Manitoba. Butcher said his winter wheat likely ran into problems last fall when he planted it into dry soil. “I felt at the time we had just

enough moisture to get it started,” he said, but it didn’t rain in time to save the crop. “I think a fair amount of it germinated, but it just stayed dry. I think a lot of it just desiccated. It just dried right out as the soil got drier. So (it) wasn’t viable when the spring came around.” Butcher can’t recall a similar experience with winter wheat in the Birtle area going back to 1980. “(It’s) the worst general failure in our area that there’s ever been.” Dry soil last fall might be the primary culprit on Butcher’s land, but de Rocquigny said a combination of factors might be responsible in other areas. She said winter wheat should ideally be at the three-leaf stage or tillering going into winter. However, many winter wheat plants had only one or two leaves going into winter last year because of dry soil. De Rocquigny said snow cover was likely sufficient, but the length of winter combined with immature

plants and a cold spring likely pushed the crop to the brink. “The ultimate result is reduced plant stands, which is causing producers to reseed,” she said. An April 24 report from Statistics Canada said Manitoba growers seeded an estimated 595,000 acres of winter wheat last fall. However, Winter Cereals Canada executive director Jake Davidson said it’s hard to know at this point how many acres will be lost to reseeding. The Red River Valley is Manitoba’s primary winter wheat growing region, he added, and it appears the crop is faring better in the eastern half of the province. Davidson said it’s difficult to estimate losses because no one knows how many acres of winter wheat are in the ground. “I don’t think with winter wheat we ever know the truth until July,” he said. “In the fall, Ducks Unlimited has a contest (to guess acreage), and the winner gets a bottle of scotch. I’ve never even come close.”


Sask. gov’t partners to fund wheat research BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

The Saskatchewan government and three companies are teaming up to fund wheat research projects designed to improve yields and competitiveness. The projects are part of a $5 million commitment from the prov-

ince over the next five years. Last week’s announcement from agriculture minister Lyle Stewart revealed spending of $2.7 million in provincial funds; a call for proposals for the remaining $2.3 million will be held in the fall. Dow AgroSciences and the province will each spend $1.25 million on a project to improve food quality

and agronomic performance of wheat varieties. Bayer CropScience and the province are sharing the cost of a project looking at the durability of stripe rust disease resistance in elite Crop Development Centre wheat varieties using both fungicides and genetics. Each partner will spend $800,000. University of Saskatchewan pro-

fessors Curtis Pozniak and Randy Kutcher, respectively, will lead the projects. Secan will use traditional and molecular breeding methods to develop wheat disease screening and quality testing capacity. The partners will each contribute $665,000.

U.S. wheat exports threatened

Chinese wheat crop could miss target

GM wheat | As importers suspend purchases of U.S. wheat, will Canada pick up some of the slack? BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The appearance of Roundup Ready wheat volunteers in an Oregon field could temporarily send more business Canada’s way but it will likely cause more harm than good, says an industry analyst. “In the short-run it might mean that countries like Japan and the European Union will demand some more testing for American wheat and maybe move a little bit of intere s t u p t o C a n a d a ,” s a i d Ne i l Townsend, director of CWB Market Research. The Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries on May 30 temporarily suspended imports of U.S. soft white wheat, filling its needs with alternatives from Australia, Canada and France. Wheat buyers in South Korea also temporarily suspended purchases of U.S. soft white wheat. Taiwan is reviewing its buying practices and the European Commission will be checking all shipments of wheat for Roundup Ready varieties once a test is available in a couple of weeks. That was the early importer response to the discovery of an unapproved GM wheat variety in an 80-acre field in Oregon. Townsend said Canadian wheat may be more in demand in the aftermath of the surprising discovery of a GM trait that was supposedly destroyed in 2005. However, he is not rubbing his hands together with glee just yet. “It’s not desirable to have this happen for anybody,” he said. Townsend worries the contamination incident is going to “stoke some fear” amongst buyers about North American wheat rather than just U.S. wheat. “What I worry about is you damn the whole area just from one isolated incident and even Canada could get caught up in that with the continuous border,” he said. Buyers know Monsanto was fieldtesting Roundup Ready wheat in Canada at the same time they were studying the crop south of the bor-

der and that could be weighing on their minds.

Errol Anderson, analyst with ProMarket Wire, said wheat markets

shrugged off the incident and he didn’t anticipate much further response. “My feeling is that it will probably run its course. I kind of doubt that Canada will get much benefit out of it,” he said. Anderson said there are more questions than answers about the Roundup Ready wheat volunteers right now. It is conceivable that the incident could influence wheat markets if more countries start banning U.S. wheat. But the biggest factor influencing wheat markets today is the growing world stocks of the commodity. There are so many sources of wheat that prices are unlikely to change as the market reacts to the U.S. situation. Japan has imported an average of 5.8 million tonnes of wheat annually over the past five years, 60 percent of which comes from the U.S. and the remainder from Canada and Australia. White wheat accounted for 30 percent of the 3.47 million tonnes of U.S. wheat that Japan purchased in 2012-13. Most Western Canadian spring wheat varieties don’t meet the soft white wheat colour requirements of Japanese noodle makers. “I don’t know if we’ll be able to take advantage of it necessarily because a lot of times at this time of year it’s hard to put together the kind of volume that the U.S. can do i n t h e i r w h i t e w h e a t ,” s a i d Townsend. He is more focused on some of the threats looming as a result of the Roundup Ready wheat incident, including increased testing of wheat shipments, which will add costs and put downward pressure on prices. “Every European trader who is phoning an American right now is asking for a discount. That’s just the w a y t h e w o r l d w o r k s ,” s a i d Townsend. “The traders don’t care. They’re just mercenaries. They’ll use all this ammunition to get a better price.”

CWB says crop won’t match USDA projection BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

China’s wheat crop likely won’t be as good as what the U.S. Department of Agriculture is forecasting, says the CWB. The USDA is predicting a near record 121 million tonnes of production. “My read is that they’re overestimating (China’s) productive capacity,” said Neil Townsend, director of CWB Market Research. He recently returned from touring crops in Henan, Shandong and Hebei, three Chinese provinces responsible for two-thirds of China’s annual wheat production. “Some of it looked good and some of it looked a little worse,” said Townsend. And then just as he was leaving China, the country received heavy rainfall in the southern part of the wheat belt that may have caused damage. “It lodged the wheat so there is potential for some acres wiped out and some lower yields in about 20 percent of the wheat area,” he said. A region from eastern Sichuan to Shandong received 51 to 127 millimetres of rain over a two day period, according to Drew Lerner, president of World Weather Inc. “That’s just a lot of rain,” he said. “From a wheat perspective, it’s right across the heart of the production region.” Lerner thinks the rain may have caused quality problems in parts of China’s winter wheat crop. However, it was positive for summer crops because the region had been dry before the moisture arrived. Many Chinese growers plant corn immediately following wheat. Townsend said China’s harvest starts in the south of the wheat belt and works its way north. Chinese farmers grow red winter wheat, but 95 percent of it would be considered between a soft red wheat and a hard red wheat. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE





Chinese wheat

Summerfallow area surpasses March forecast

» CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE Harvest was underway in Henan when Townsend visited last week. Crops were four to six weeks away from coming off in the northern portion of the wheat belt. “The heavy rains were in the southern part of Henan, which is the biggest wheat production state,” he said. The moisture likely caused damage in neighbouring Anhui. “I wouldn’t be surprised if (China’s) imports start ratcheting up,” he said. China recently bought 650,000 tonnes of U.S. wheat. The Chinese government has also increased domestic support prices for the crop. Townsend sees those two moves as a signal that the country expects to be short of wheat. He thinks China, which is the world’s largest wheat producer, could import 500,000 to one million tonnes more than the USDA’s estimate of 3.5 million tonnes for 2013-14.


More prairie farmland is likely to be taking an involuntary holiday this year than last year due to the wet, late spring in many areas. But exactly how many acres are unseeded by crop insurance deadlines is hard to say, according to CWB crop situation analyst Bruce Burnett. Instead of summerfallow acreage falling this year, as indicated in the Statistics Canada March seeding intentions report, it’s likely to increase by more than a million acres over last year. “That’s virtually a certainty now,” said Burnett on May 29. “The reduction isn’t going to happen.” The Statistics Canada March 31 seeding intentions sur vey said farmers expected to leave only 3.5 million acres fallow in 2013, down from 4.5 million in 2012. In 2011 the fallow area surged to 11.8 million acres as flooding inundated major parts of Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Burnett said he was surprised to see the StatsCan survey cut the 2013 number further from the 2012 number, since 4.5 million acres was already low. Farmers were very aggressive with wanting to plant every acre they could in 2013, but achieving that target would be difficult. “I think it was somewhat unrealistic to have area estimates that were up at that level for the sown area,” said Burnett. Instead of a million acre reduction, summerfallow might increase by two to three million acres in 2013. However, it is hard to say where the number will end up because farmers are capable of incredible feats of seedi n g when t hey g e t d e c e nt weather. Burnett said the CWB’s May 27 estimate that all-prairie acreage was 70-75 percent finished was amazing in the context of snow being on the fields only weeks before and cold temperatures prevailing for almost all of April and May. “When you think about the situation we faced four weeks ago, that’s impressive progress,” he said.

MORE FALLOW THAN EXPECTED IN CANADA Canadian farmers in March told Statistics Canada they intended to leave only about 3.5 million acres fallow this year, a record small amount, but challenging spring weather will likely mean summerfallow area will be one or two million acres more than last year, although not as high as in the two previous wet springs.

Repeated rain storms saturated some fields in eastern North Dakota. |



Seeding slow in North Dakota U.S. crops | Growing conditions and prices make wheat unattractive BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

FARGO, North Dakota — A sickly sheen shines off the surface of scores of saturated eastern North Dakota farm fields, making a drive from Winnipeg to Fargo last week an exercise in not seeing farm machinery move. Seeding progress is much delayed in significant patches of eastern North Dakota as cold, soaking rains caused some soils to become saturated. But other nearby areas are doing well. “It’s a real mixed bag,” said Conor Smith of the North Dakota Farm Bureau during a drive around the Fargo and Breckenridge, Minnesota areas. “Some people have almost nothing in. Others are almost finished.” Wheat acreage on the eastern edge of North Dakota is already imperiled because of poor returns versus corn, but this year saturation and cold might mean many acres that would have been planted by wheat loyalists will be lost. One of the nearly finished farmers in the area was Tom Christensen, whose local area was dry enough at the right times to get almost all of his crop in. “I have one hour left, but now we

NORTH DAKOTA’S SPRING WHEAT AREA Spring wheat (000 acres) 2009 6,450 2010 6,400 2011 5,650 2012 5,500 2013 6,200* *estimate Source: USDA

have rain,” said Christensen. But in some parts of eastern North Dakota farmers didn’t start seeding until May 26, and almost immediately had to quit because of an onslaught of drizzly or heavy rain. By this time of the year most fields should have a thick green flush of growth, but most fields from the Canadian border to Fargo are still bare. In pockets, that bareness conceals a crop that has been planted and will soon emerge, but in other areas it reveals farmland not seeded and which might not be sown this year. Crop insurance deadlines are approaching and some are already past, so time is not on farmers’ sides. But just over the border in Minne-

sota and to the southeast, green crops are emerging and conditions look good. Crops are late, but not dangerously so, and wheat can be seen on a few fields in this primarily corn and soybean region. Wheat has been fighting a losing battle in Minnesota and eastern North Dakota, as the increasing popularity and profitability of cornsoybeans routs almost all other crops, but around Breckenridge and some other towns a symbiotic relationship has developed between wheat and sugar beets. The area used to grow mostly wheat, but the crop’s failure to keep up with corn yield gains means few farmers now grow it unless they also grow sugar beets. Diseases and weeds that plague beets can survive through corn and soybean parts of the rotation, but inserting a wheat crop breaks the cycle, so many sugar beet growers always seed wheat before beets. But for the remaining acreage in eastern North Dakota, where farmers still occasionally choose to grow the crop because it might make money, hard red spring wheat is having a tough time. Some farmers might have none at all this year, even if they made the uncommon choice of tr ying to grow it.

China is a sporadic buyer of Canadian wheat but can be a huge customer when it needs foreign supplies. For instance, it bought 2.8 million tonnes of Canadian wheat in 2004 but a few years later bought nothing. “They definitely prize the western Canadian spring wheat for blending and milling purposes,” said Townsend. He expects China to become a more consistent customer in the future, buying one million tonnes a year or more depending on local production.

Lentil growers benefit from poor yields abroad Red lentil demand | India, Bangladesh and Pakistan may need to increase imports BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Presentations at a recent international pulse conference shed light on why red lentil prices have been so strong this year. They outline problems with the crop in key production regions, which is why Canadian growers are seeing bids of 26 cents per pound for their lentils. The biggest revelation was how badly the crop fared in India, the world’s second largest lentil production region next to Canada. Saleem Wahab, a trader with Ghazi Commodities Brokerage in India, told delegates attending the International Pulse Trade and Industries Confederation conference that India’s recently harvested red lentil crop was about 35 percent short of its usual 900,000 tonnes of production. India, which normally imports 180,000 to 200,000 tonnes of the crop per year, will be in the market for much more this year because of a disappointing harvest and poor carry-in coming into the new crop year. “India would need to double its requirement for imports this year to maybe about 300,000 to 400,000 tonnes,” Wahab said in a video recording of the conference held in Singapore in April. Bangladesh typically uses 200,000 tonnes of red lentils a year and produces 40,000 to 50,000 tonnes. This year’s production was closer to 75,000 tonnes.

Indian consumers will likely see more imported Canadian red lentils in their shops this year because of a poor domestic harvest. | REUTERS/VIVEK PRAKASH PHOTO Turkey is another key lentil producing and consuming region. Harvest is underway and things were looking good. “We can expect ordinary numbers,” said Fethi Sonmez, chief executive officer of Armada Foods in Turkey. He is forecasting 400,000 to 450,000 tonnes of production, which would be at the high end of the normal production range. “It means Turkey will have a surplus to export of about 60,000 to 100,000 tonnes,” said Sonmez. Murad Al-Katib, president of Alliance Grain Traders, recently told investment analysts that unofficial estimates in the lentil trade peg the Turkish crop at a much smaller 375,000 tonnes.

Any surplus in Turkey will be offset by a deficit in neighbouring Syria, which is in the midst of a civil war. Sonmez thinks Syrian farmers planted more wheat than lentils because it is a much-needed staple, while lentils require too much manpower at harvest. He expects the red lentil crop to be much smaller than the usual 100,000 tonnes. “We can see a very big reduction in the total crop. We can expect 20,000 to 30,000 tonnes only,” said Sonmez. Egypt is expected to import its usual 60,000 to 100,000 tonnes, depending on price. Most of the imports will come from Canada. Pakistan is also experiencing production problems. It usually imports 100,000 tonnes of lentils and pro-

duces 20,000 to 25,000 tonnes. This year’s harvest will be 2,000 to 5,000 tonnes because of weather problems. “Having said that, we have a very good crop of chickpeas, and prices for chickpeas are very low, so we could have some substitution from re d l e nt i l s t o c h i c kp e a s,” s a id Muhammad Ahmed, director of the AWAM Group of Companies in Pakistan. He is forecasting a significant increase in demand from splitters in Dubai because of the shortfall in Syria’s crop. Dubai usually imports 80,000 tonnes of red lentils, but demand could be up 20 to 25 percent this year. Australian red lentil production

was 185,000 tonnes, down from 310,000 tonnes the previous year. It is Canada’s biggest competitor in many markets. Carry-in was a minimal 35,000 tonnes, which resulted in a total supply of 220,000 tonnes. That is less than half of what was available the previous year. Brett Dodson, international marketing manager for Australian Grain E xport Pty Ltd., said Australia shipped 22,500 tonnes of red lentils per month during the first four months of this year, and the sales program for May and June increased dramatically because of strong Indian demand. “The balance sheet for Australia is very tight. We’re going to run out in my view in July and August,” he said. “We just don’t have the stocks to compete against Canada.” Farhan Adam, chief executive officer of Marina Commodities Canada, estimates Canada had 1.1 million tonnes of red lentil supply at the beginning of the crop year on Aug. 1. He figures 300,000 tonnes will be consumed domestically, leaving 800,000 tonnes for export. An estimated 475,000 tonnes of that had been sold as of the end of March. A strong sales program is also on the books for the coming months. “We believe there will be a very negligible carryover, probably less than 100,000 tonnes,” said Adam. He expects Canadian growers to plant 1.1 million acres of red lentils this year, resulting in 700,000 tonnes of production, assuming average yields. About 250,000 tonnes of that will be used domestically. “That would result in approximately 500,000 tonnes or so to market to the world, which is not much for the new crop,” said Adam.


Farm profits generate optimism, but some remain guarded BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

It is time for grain farmers to ditch their negative Nelly attitudes and start talking positively about their industry, says a Manitoba farm leader. Growers in the three prairie provinces posted record crop receipts of $18.3 billion in 2012, according to Statistics Canada. That is up 15 percent over last year and more than 2.5 times the revenue their grain farms generated at the start of the new millennium. Farmers should be proudly celebrating their good fortune, said Doug Chorney, president of Keystone Agricultural Producers. “I’m 48 years old and we’ve never had better times in grain farming in Western Canada than right now,” he said. “I have never been more excited about a crop being planted and harvested than I have been the last couple of years.” Chorney hesitates to share his enthusiasm about the industry because his fellow producers don’t like him talking about the money being made in grain farming.


“I’ve taken a lot of criticism from my members at the district meetings last fall for being too upbeat,” he said. “But if we’re going to attract our own kids to be interested in agriculture in the future, I think we have to start talking about some of our successes.” National Farmers Union president Terry Boehm doesn’t share that view. “There’s no point attracting new entrants to agriculture with their eyes closed,” he said. Boehm believes young farmers should be aware of what he sees as the dismantling and erosion of agriculture, such as the loss of CWB’s single desk and community pastures and the watering down of the Canadian Grain Commission. He said high grain prices are masking a lot of underlying problems in farming.

“Agriculture has always been a cycle of boom and bust, and the political landscape that I see in front of us will actually exacerbate that boom and bust situation because those mechanisms that balance some of the power are being eliminated.” For instance, young farmers need to know that seed technology companies are heavily lobbying Ottawa for increased plant breeder’s rights so they can squeeze more money out of growers. “They’re relentless, relentless, relentless. They’re never off message,” Boehm said. “They’re going to give us innovation, but they need just this extra return that this legislated protection will give them.” He said one pound of canola seed sells for 36 times what a grower receives from the elevator, which hurts the bottom line. Chorney has heard that popular lament: that rising input costs are negating the benefits of higher grain prices. It’s not the case on his farm, which is making money these days. “I can afford to pay for fertilizer when I sell canola for $15 a bushel.” Statistics Canada says crop receipts for the prairie provinces are up 68

percent since 2007, which was the year before the run-up in grain prices. Expenses for fertilizer, pesticides and seed are up 44 percent over that same period. Chorney said there is a “culture of complaining” in farming. Growers have griped for generations about things such as too much rain or not enough rain and they never seem satisfied with their returns. “I’m going to take heat for saying that, but that’s the truth,” he said. “We’ve become part of a pattern of negative outlooks. Maybe it’s time to temper that message a bit so that we can ensure renewal in our industry.” He said his own mother gave him hell for quitting a job to return to farming. Chorney has been hearing similar comments his entire life, and he’s sick of it. He believes farming is a great career. “There’s a lot of positive news coming out of agriculture and we’re sort of embarrassed to admit we’re successful because it has been such a common theme of negativism through the generations,” he said. Boehm disagreed, saying farmers have bona fide reasons to grumble. “I know from the outside it looks

like farmers are squawking all the time because there’s always something wrong,” he said. However, he sees an industry where seed technology companies are gaining power at the expense of farmers, land prices are so high that they have become a barrier to entry and a bushel of grain doesn’t have the purchasing power that it did in the 1970s when his father experienced similar high grain prices. “He could buy a new tractor for 4,000 bu. of wheat. Now you can’t even imagine that,” said Boehm. Chorney thinks it is time farmers stopped being so hesitant to admit they have a brand new combine or they just bought an expensive parcel of land. However, he also said he knows that not all farmers are riding a wave of good fortune. For instance, he knows many Manitoba hog producers are under tremendous duress. Chorney also pointed out there is considerable risk in grain farming. While the input costs are a given, the revenue side is subject to the vagaries of the weather. So it’s not all roses, he said, but it’s not all thorns either.





Excess rain replaces drought as main market worry MARKET WATCH



t is hard to believe that the worst drought in decades last year in the U.S. Midwest is being followed by the wettest spring in Iowa in the 141 years that records have been kept. Ed White’s travels described on previous pages shows the moisture continues into North Dakota. It is pretty wet in parts of the Canadian Prairies too, although central and northern areas are dry. The water has delayed seeding, likely resulting in fewer sown acres than were expected just a few weeks

Weather systems across the U.S. last week brought tornados to Oklahoma and heavy rains in the Midwest and North Dakota. | REUTERS PHOTO ago. The weather problems stopped the early May crop price declines, but it is not clear if they will generate a real rally. An average of responses to a Reuters poll of analysts puts U.S. corn area at 95.11 million acres, down from U.S. Department of Agriculture’s estimate of 97.3 million. Soybean acres are seen at 78.24, up

from USDA’s estimate of 77.1 million. USDA might adjust its acreage outlook in its next monthly report June 12 or it might wait until its next acreage survey, due for release June 28. In Canada, the CWB believes summerfallow acres will be millions more than the record low amount farmers expected in the Statistics Canada March 31 seeding intentions


week and up 3.4 percent for the month. The May feeder contract expired with an $11 premium built into the nearby August contract. Cash trade did not respond to this premium but instead basis levels weakened substantially. The 850 pound steer basis widened to -$25.26 from -$12.74 the week before. The cash-to-futures basis has not been this weak since the same week last year. Demand for steers improved but interest in heifers was lackluster. The price of Alberta and Ontario steers 900 pounds and heavier moved in opposite directions, narrowing the spread to about $7 per cwt. Weekly feeder exports to May 18 fell

report. StatsCan’s seeded area report comes out June 25. In the U.S., the question hanging over the market is whether the adage “rain makes grain” will be proven or will late seeding hurt yields. Technical analysts early this week suggested that if concern about wet fields pushed corn prices above resistance points, at about $6.685 in the July contract and $5.7375 in the December, then a rally was possible to drive it up to another resistance point in the December contract a few cents higher than $6, a high not seen since January. On Monday this week, the price failed to break the $5.7375 resistance, sparking an immediate 20-cent decline before recovering a little. Prices remained at a point where more production-negative news could push vales a bit higher or neutral-to-positive news could push them significantly lower.

In wheat, the excess moisture in the U.S. is coming at a bad time when it might not help yield but could lead to disease and quality declines in hard and soft winter types just as the combines are about to come out. Another factor in the wheat market is a belief among analysts that the export potential from the Black Sea is a few million tonnes less than USDA’s current forecast. Globally, wheat production might not be as large as was expected a few weeks ago but the market still expects to be adequately supplied. The corn market is tighter and so has greater potential to spark significant price moves. The crop is now mostly in the ground albeit fewer than expected acres. As always, weather will dominate the summer trade. Will a wet June follow a soggy May?

CANFAX REPORT RECORD PRICES FAIL TO BRING PROFITS Fed steers averaged $121.90 per hundredweight, up $2.62 to a record high while heifers averaged $119.98, up $1.51. The previous high was set in March 2001. It was only the second time that steers averaged above $120. Despite the strong prices, feedlots are still reporting losses on the cattle they market. Chicago live cattle futures fell 5.8 percent for May, their biggest monthly decline since 11.36 percent in May 2011. Dressed sales ended up $3 per cwt. higher than the previous week. Most of the cash sales were fed calves traded on a carcass basis. There were no U.S. sales. The Alberta cash-to-futures basis narrowed $1.72 to a seasonally strong -$3.05. Sales increased 51 percent from the holiday-shortened week to 14,265 head. No significant Saskatchewan fed trade was reported. Manitoba fed cattle saw renewed buyer interest from Ontario. Western Canadian fed slaughter for the short holiday week ending May 25 totaled 28,534 head, down 19 percent from the previous week. Weekly fed exports to May 18 fell four percent to 8,295 head. Feedlots are current in their marketing and with tighter market-ready supplies, prices should be well supported near term but consumer demand for high price beef will remain critical. If they show resistance, fed prices could fall abruptly.

For the first time in five weeks, western Canadian cow slaughter volumes failed to surpass year ago levels. There were reports of plant issues at Brooks, Alta. The slowdown caused a backlog of inventory. With a buyer on the sidelines for most of the week, non-fed prices fell $2 - $3. D1, D2 cows ranged $72 - $83 to average $76.40. D3s ranged $62 - $75 to average $68. Railgrade prices ranged $149 - $154. Generally good grass conditions should reduce cow marketings.

Foreign worker recruitment programs need streamlining


ears ago, farm labour was not an issue. It was a foregone conclusion that farm families, generally much larger than those of today, would work the land and the barns themselves with help from, perhaps, a hired hand. Today, farm labour — at least in a recent survey — is the third-ranking major concern among producers, behind only weather and high input prices. Thirty-two percent of farmers in a recent PRA Research Associates survey were worried about farm labour. The bigger the farm, the greater the concern expressed. Let’s face it, it’s not easy work. As the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association said in a recent note on the CCA Action News website, there is “widespread recognition that traditional Canadian sources for agriculture labour are proving inadequate. “Simply put, few Canadian-born workers aspire to work in livestock production and meat processing jobs, particularly due to the tendency of such positions being in remote or rural locations,” said the note. This is one of many reasons behind the need for an additional 50,900 non-seasonal and 38,800 seasonal workers, according to a Canadian Agriculture Human Resource Council (CAHRC) Labour Market Information on Recruitment and Retention Report (2009). As Corey Bacon, president of the Saskatchewan Beekeepers Association, recently noted in an interview, the nature of seasonal work is a problem and the ever-present “stinging insects may be another deterrent.” Therefore, Bacon has relied on the agricultural stream of the Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) program, which was not touched when Ottawa made changes to the wider program a few weeks ago. However, even that has been a tougher row to hoe since the Saskatoon office was closed more than two years ago. Since then, the processing time for foreign worker applicants has risen from three weeks to several months, he said. “It really affected my business,” said Bacon. “We’re not like hotels or Tim Hor-

tons. We’ve got to hit those (seasonal) windows.” Some of the issues, as described by Bacon and the CCA, regarding a shortage of workers cannot be resolved by policy or process, but they can help. For example, expediting forms and eliminating bottlenecks in the system would be of enormous help to producers like Bacon. On the livestock side, it is also strange that feedlot operations are excluded from both the ag stream of TFW and the Seasonal Agricultural Worker program. Feedlot work is certainly primary agriculture, and while some may not like to see foreign workers expedited for huge feedlots connected to slaughter plants, smaller feedlot operators would benefit enormously from the ability to plug into this program. Otherwise, feedlots and other larger livestock operations are stuck with the general, more restrictive TFW program. The CCA has rightly asked the federal government to implement the recommendations of the CAHRC report, which would “improve the administration of the existing program and address constraints that hinder legitimate use of the program in the agriculture and agri-food sector.” The recommendations can be found on the CAHRC website. Recommendation No. 2, for example, suggests taking action to increase the supply of workers to agriculture in several ways — notably, modifying Canada’s immigration program to enable people who want to work in agriculture to stay longer-term; and improve employment insurance and social assistance programs, so that people are not penalized for taking short-term employment in agriculture. Perhaps it’s time to take a hard look at the programs governing recruitment of foreign workers, not to mention Canadian-born workers. Patchwork systems can be frustrating and confusing, and a more streamlined, focused approach to dealing with a dearth of farm labour will yield big benefits in the long run.

Speculation swirls: Will Gerry Ritz stay in cabinet or decide to go? NATIONAL VIEW



t the mid-point of his majority government,with the administration mired in Senate scandal and looking tired, prime minister Stephen Harper will use the summer break to try to reboot. He will close down the first session of the 41st Parliament, launching a new session in September with a throne speech and a new

agenda designed to guide the Conservative Party into the October 2015 election. He also will try to put a new face on a government that has been in power for more than seven years with many of the same ministers. So a cabinet shuffle is in the offing, moving out some of the old stalwarts (public safety minister Vic Toews, likely, perhaps justice minister Rob Nicholson and a few others) to make room for some of the younger, more fresh-faced MPs who have proven themselves loyal, competent and articulate. First, though, Harper almost certainly will have one-on-one meetings with his current cabinet ministers to find out if they plan to run again in 2015. If they plan to retire, they will be

prime targets to be dropped, not because of their past performance but because it will allow a fresh face onto the front bench. Political Ottawa is filled with all the ‘when and who’ questions. Which brings us to agriculture minister Gerry Ritz. Will he or won’t he? With agriculture being such a low profile file in the capital, his name does not make up much of the speculation. But among farm lobbyists and farm movement leaders, it is one of the topics-du-jour. “There is lots of speculation,” a prairie farm lobby insider says. “Lots of people are talking about it and guessing. I’d say from my contacts, it is a 50-50 split on whether he stays or not.” To be clear, there is no reason to

speculate that Ritz would get fired. He has been a successful agriculture minister implementing and defending much of Harper’s agricultural agenda (Canadian Wheat Board, Canadian Grain Commission, reducing farm supports) and generally staying out of trouble with a few notable exceptions. This August if he still is in the office, he will mark his sixth anniversary, one of the longest-serving agriculture ministers ever and the longestserving Conservative minister in more than a century. So why would he tell Harper this is his last term? Ritz has been in Parliament since 1997, turns 62 this summer, would be 64 in the next election and 68 by the end of the next term. Maybe, with a rich MP pension not

going to get any better, he’d like some years to do something else or relax. As well, he really has accomplished much of the Conservative agriculture agenda in six years. What’s to look forward to? And as minister he already has visited most of the world. So why would he want to stay? Ritz seems to be enjoying himself. Maybe the Conservatives after their June policy conference in Calgary will develop a new creative agriculture policy for the next six years that would entice him to stay. Or maybe the idea of getting out of the political hothouse doesn’t appeal. Maybe he wants a new challenge and a different portfolio. Given his performance for Harper, my guess is it will be his choice. Will he stay or will he go?





Community pasture benefits misunderstood Should we not look beyond mere “price” and protect ongoing “value?”

Now here’s a fair (and foul) weather job EDITORIAL NOTEBOOK



eople are still scratching their heads over Ottawa’s planned cancellation of the successful, eight-decades-old federal community pasture program. Today, when the profitability of beef production is questioned and the ecological value of grazing is misunderstood, the pastures’ benefits stand firm. For every $1 spent, the pastures don’t only grow beef. They also generate $2.50 in research, carbon sequestration, watershed protection, specific habitat for species at risk and 12 other documented public benefits. Their 2.7 percent of prairie has been called Canada’s grassland jewel. Some large ranches, having survived climate and market pressures, also deserve this accolade. The Saskatchewan government did not ask for this pasture challenge and needs our help. Leasing or selling publicly owned land to a select few is consistent with the conservative view that private owners best manage resources. Obviously, private enterprise is a key to creating wealth, but responsible governance needs to think beyond today. Should we not look beyond mere “price” and protect ongoing “value?” What do the economics suggest? The community pastures are especially attractive for mixed and young farmers. A grain farming family’s


Community pastures, like this grazing land south of the Elbow range in Saskatchewan, are especially attractive for mixed and young farmers, say the authors. | BRANIMIR GJETVAJ PHOTO small herd went to the federal pasture after calving and before the grain-related workload peaked. In fall ,the cows came home to clean up grain fields, eat non-marketable grain and graze hilly or flooded land. This integrated approach to ecology, land, time and economics contributed significantly to farm diversification and income. However, it was apparently poorly understood in Ottawa. Does it also need explanation in Regina? One producer has calculated an annual profit of $125 per cow-calf pair under the existing federal community pasture system, compared to a $40 loss for purchased community pasture land. It would cost patrons of one large pasture six times more annually to buy it than to lease it from the federal government. Lease rates offered by the province aren’t as dire but also result in lost profit. As well, patrons would prefer spending their money on improving herds or making value-added improvements rather than acquiring land.

Given these economics, it is not surprising that patrons of the first 10 pastures offered for sale are unenthusiastic. One group has already decided to sell their herds. The majority needs more time to plan well and resolve uncertainties associated with the provincial lease offer, such as decommissioning water wells and maintaining breeding bulls. Some producers may find creative ways to make things work on some pastures, such as substantially increasing stocking rates and reducing grass diversity and drought resistance. But who would monitor oil, gas and gravel extraction? Although it would put substantial royalties into provincial coffers, it would also result in the loss of the above-mentioned public benefits without management. What is the solution? If wisdom and democracy are lost in Ottawa, then let’s have a Saskatchewan community pasture program. The Manitoba government continues to balance the public and private costs and benefits, while Alberta

manages grazing and public benefits through the Special Areas Board. The United States does something similar with its Bureau of Land Management. Most Saskatchewan patrons, conservationists and hunters would prefer such an arrangement to continue. Having up to 60 volunteer board bosses manage a pasture from afar has been described as “a rodeo.” The Saskatchewan government offers patrons the right of first refusal to buy or lease. If patrons decline, will the pastures be sold to other interests, even offshore interests? What would this mean for the livestock industry in Saskatchewan? And what would it mean for our rural communities? Katherine Arbuthnott is a professor and assistant dean at the University of Regina’s Campion College, with research in conservation psychology.

Weed control issues as frustrating as the weeds HURSH ON AG



t’s the field operation that covers the greatest number of acres in the shortest period of time. Trouble is, a multitude of factors can keep the sprayer from doing its job on weeds. Wind is arguably the biggest enemy. For spring burn-off operations, when no susceptible crops have emerged in the vicinity, many growers will push the envelope. Weed control is usually good, but you feel rather silly spraying in a gale. You’d rather go unseen. When crops have emerged, wind becomes a much bigger concern. On the field edges, you can slow down, cut the spray pressure, use wind

resistant nozzles, and keep the booms low, but you still worry where the wind is taking the fine droplets. Shields and cones cut down on drift, but there’s a trade-off. Shields get coated with chemical and should be washed when going from one product to the next. Both shields and cones make it more difficult to see if every nozzle is performing properly. Ironically, dead calm can also cause crop damage. When there’s no wind, inversions can occur causing a big cloud of droplets to migrate to adjoining fields. Some growers spray at night when winds are usually lighter, but studies show that efficacy often drops after the sun goes down. When you finally get light winds, you have to worry about when the next rain is coming. How many times have you checked the herbicide application bibles looking for how quickly a product is rain fast? And, of course, the crop and the weeds need to be in the right stage or you don’t want to be spraying any-

how. I have stinkweed in a brown mustard crop. The only product registered is Muster Toss-N-Go. The mustard is supposed to be at least the four-leaf stage or crop injury could result. The stinkweed needs to be in the one to four leaf stage. This seems to assume that all the mustard germinated at the same time and all the stinkweed germinated shortly thereafter. It’s not always that clear cut. You can do a lot of field scouting trying to get the timing right. Many products have wide application windows, but you still worry about going too early and missing late-germinating weeds or going too late and suffering a yield depression due to weed competition. And do you go for products that do the best job of killing your weeds, even if they have re-cropping restrictions? I considered Ares on Clearfield canola, but you can’t seed durum the following year. Prestige is a cocktail of fluroxypyr, clopyralid and MCPA Ester and provides good control over many trou-

blesome weeds in cereals including canaryseed, but you can’t seed lentils the next year. Going through all the weed control options and tracking down your choice of products can also get in the way of actual application. Meanwhile, you try to minimize the number of times you go from one product to something entirely different. Sprayer clean-outs aren’t fun and you always have that niggling fear of residue that could hurt the next crop you spray. Sometimes an application is postponed just to avoid another clean-out. So if the wind isn’t too high or in the wrong direction, and if it isn’t dead calm, and it isn’t after dark, and there’s no rain or cold temperatures in the forecast, and you have your product picked out, and your sprayer is cleaned and loaded, you can spray a lot of acres per hour.

The Western Producer’s parent company, Glacier Media, has recently acquired WeatherFarm, which in turn administers a weather reporting network called CoCoRaHS in Canada. That stands for Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network.

The findings are then reported on the website at Once the reports come in, the information is displayed for analysts to use, including meteorologists, hydrologists, farmers and emergency managers. The information is useful for determining water resources and contributes to the provision of severe storm warnings. The network got started at the Colorado Climate Center at Colorado State University in 1998. The impetus behind it was the Fort Collins flood the previous year. A big rainstorm resulted in a huge flood, but there were only two rain gauges in the community at the time, which did not offer much in the way of precipitation information. A similar event brought CoCoRaHS to Canada, when flooding hit Manitoba, Saskatchewan and North Dakota in 2011.

Re: Feedlot sector in trouble in Western Canada, April 4 WP. This article shows how dysfunctional the chain of commerce has become in the beef industry. Historically, when outside investors were involved in the feedlot sector, feedlot operators were not concerned with feed efficiency. They were selling feed. The more cattle ate, the more money they made. Now, when feed grain values have increased they have no historical data on the more feed efficient type of cattle to minimize their losses.

As the industry trended toward increased marbling, the lean meat yield of slaughter animals has decreased. According to Canfax results, 49.4 percent of slaughter cattle cannot achieve a yield of greater than 58 percent. This trend has been increasing for the last decade. To compensate for feedlot deficiencies, they have been implanting the cattle with growth hormones. To improve lean meat yield, the industry now uses beta agonists to compensate for the downward trend of yield. While the industry has utilized these practices, we have lost export markets and consumer per capita consumption. The industry needs to increase tenderness, not marbling.

Increased animal fat is a concern to human health as it increases heart disease and increases cholesterol levels. ... The main conclusions from the 2012 Beef Improvement Federation annual meeting in Houston, Texas, were to increase cross breeding, to improve feed efficiency and lean meat yield. It is obvious the feedlot sector has not addressed these issues as they continue to overpay for green cattle that they hope to improve with growth implants and beta agonists while above average and good doing cattle do not receive their value. ... Remember, crap in equals crap out. A Canadian Agri-Food Policy Insti-

tute report states “that a new collaborative strategy is needed. From producers to retailers, each link in the beef supply chain needs to better use and share information on beef performance, grade and yield, market characteristics and consumer preferences.” I totally agree with this statement. The industry needs to utilize the Beef InfoXchange System (BIXS) to its maximum to find the most information it possibly can for the betterment of producers and consumers alike. It is time to fix this business we call livestock production before it is too late. Bill Campbell, Minto, Man.

We know a thing or two about disease control. Two modes of action are better than one. It’s the first lesson in disease control

Pundits, talk show hosts and pollsters repeatedly ask the question, “what went wrong election day, May 14, 2013, in B.C.?” The answer is simple and straightforward: voter wisdom of British Columbians elected a stable provincial government. That was not wrong. Pipeline construction and market development was beyond NDP logic. Economics played a major role in the minds of the voting public, where management of British Columbia’s natural resources was front and centre. Without a doubt, the current political candidates reviewed the successful strategy established and practised by the Saskatchewan Party led by the very able honourable Brad Wall and his ambitious team. Fu r t h e r, t h e h o n o u ra b l e Ms. (Christie) Clark is no admirer of Al Gore and will not be swayed by outside interests such as those in Hollywood or other American interests. She is a true British Columbian and a loyal Canadian, highly worthy and capable of the position as premier of B.C. Her opposition had a lot of good points. However, they lacked the ability and understanding of a province as diverse as British Columbia. Mr. Adrian Dix followed the same patterns as were practised by the honourable Glen Clark and the honourable Mike Harcourt before him. Such philosophy does not measure up to 2013 economic standards, which were clearly demonstrated May 14 by British Columbia’s electorate. John Seierstad, Nanaimo, B.C.

Regarding your front-page article, Tiny insects, big problems (WP May 16). The Rasputin Effect has caught up here, too. Chemicals in the weed control system have started to have tolerating weeds. Why not for the little insects, too? The article talks about how the chemical has failure in cooler and damper conditions. Well, quite frankly, seeding in a cool, wet soil does not help. The farmers, for a good portion, are to blame for some of this enemy “getting past the guard.” From friends

OPINION and relatives farming in various areas of our Prairies, I have heard how some farmers are “pushing it” by seeding canola on canola as many as eight years back to back. Oh. Our scientists are always ahead of things. Not really. We have this Rasputin Effect in our health-care system where illnesses are out stepping certain “cures” and we have to find stronger ones. We have seen certain weeds build resistance to certain chemicals. Like one good friend told me, “I have a chemical combination no weed can survive — it is called diesel fuel and a cultivator. Once the roots are out of the ground, the plant ain’t surviving!” ... All sectors, scientists, farmers and the public in general have contributed to these tolerances. There are merits to the old ways, including summerfallowing and proper crop rotations.


A story about two little shoes SPIRITUAL VIGNETTES



amilies take care of each other but may be too busy to make a practice of giving thanks for each other. I was reminded of this when I attended a workshop about grief led by Deanna Edwards. Edwards is a composer, author and singer who works with the sick, elderly and grieving. For the most part that day, she invited us to the bedside of the dying, to sit with the grieving, to talk with the lonely while she shared music and words that were so insightful, so caring, so intimate. Then at any moment, her gentle humour would invite smiles and laughter. In the midst of all this she spoke about the bond her family shared in spite of busy lives. There was a story. One evening, when the household had quieted, she noticed two little shoes on the stair, and a song came to her. “They are all scuffed and worn from the adventures only a child understands./ The laces, once broken, are mended. Tied in knots by a small boy’s hands./ When his two chubby arms come around me in a hug I can never refuse / I think all the wonders of heaven are tucked in those two little shoes.” By then our memories brought quiet tears. “I think of the harsh words I’ve spoken when those shoes scattered mud on the floor. / But I know my heart would be broken if someday they weren’t there anymore. / I see them at night where you left them on your way to a dream coming true. My heart fills with love overflowing when I think of those two little shoes.” The chorus! “And each night I kneel, / my heart sings a prayer. / Thanks, dear God, for one little boy / and two little shoes on the stair.” Joyce Sasse writes for the Canadian Rural Church Network at www.canadian

To the Editor: According to The Canadian Press and some newspapers, the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association wants the federal government to approve the irradiation of beef, supposedly to kill dangerous E. coli. Irradiation is a process by which a food product is exposed to high doses of radiation to kill bacteria, parasites and mould. In the United States, three types of ionizing radiation are permitted: gamma rays, high-energy electrons and


X-rays. ... Doug O’Halloran, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 401, says the processing line at the XL Foods Lakeside plant in Brooks moves too quickly. Between 300 and 320 carcasses go by workers every hour and employees make between 3,000 and 4,000 cuts a shift, which has resulted in considerably less time in which to make sure knives are sanitized after each cut. Cattle are supposed to be washed before they enter to ensure their fur is free of manure, but sometimes the water is not hot enough to get off all the excrement, resulting in that excrement backing up on the killing floor, forcing workers to traipse through the waste and track it through the plant. Dr. Patricia Whisnant, a graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, 1981, states,


“60 percent of the largest United States meat plants failed to meet federal food safety regulations for preventing E. coli bacteria in their products.” What are the stats in Canada? As Whisnant says, “irradiation may provide an excuse not to tackle the real sources and practices responsible for the contamination of beef …” Whisnant further states, “our efforts in the meat industry should be aimed at removing the filth from the source, not just making cow manure safer to eat”. Source: Clean Beef or irradiated Dirty Beef? A Veterinarian’s Perspective. While the CCA says its proposal calls for irradiated beef to be clearly labelled, irradiation is just a BandAid on the problem. It is better to deal with the origins of the problem and not irradiate at all. Joyce Neufeld, Waldeck, Sask.





Protecting birds can boost bottom line BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Birds and electrical lines can be a deadly combination. The number of wild birds injured or killed by collision or electrocution cannot be accurately measured, but it is thought to be substantial.

Border Collies Nell and Bella, with handler Heather Williams from Border Control Bird Dogs, have been hired by Agriculture Canada to patrol about 700 acres of research plots on Ottawa’s Central Experimental Farm.

Officials hire canine unit to manage problematic geese Right dogs for the job | Director of Ag Canada research centre in Ontario says geese are causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Several thousand geese chowing down grain growing on research test plots at the Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa is at least a quarter million dollar headache for Marc Savard. It sets back research, destroys important work and requires researchers to start over again at significant cost, said the director of operations at Agriculture Canada’s Eastern Cereal and Oilseed Research Centre. “The problem is huge and it is getting worse,” he said. “Last year was the worst because there are more geese and they seem to be hungrier. I would estimate the cost last year at a quarter million. It could be in the millions.” Most of an oat research project was wiped out on one weekend. “The researcher came in Monday and it was devastating,” said Savard. “He was trying to collect seeds from the ground that could be replanted.” Enter Bella and Nell, two Border Collies that Agriculture Canada hired this year to chase away geese from the 740 acres of research plots in the centre of Ottawa. The dogs work early morning and

late afternoon shifts five days a week for seven weeks in the spring when geese are coming back from their winter in the south and 12 weeks in the fall when they are looking to fuel their trip south. They spent a 6:30-9:30 shift on a recent Sunday morning without a goose in sight. “They obviously have done a good job,” handler Heather Williams from Border Control Bird Dogs said. “Come back in the fall.” T h e d e p a r t m e nt i s s p e n d i n g $44,000 on the canine patrol contract this year as an experiment to see if it helps deal with the goose problem. Savard said it is a gamble, and because there is no Agriculture Canada budget to hire dogs, he has been scrambling within his own budget to find the money. Some researchers are also turning over some of their funding for the project. “So far there has been less damage to the crops this spring, but I’m withholding my judgment until winter when the season is over,” he said. “But if there is a significant saving in crop loss, I will make a pitch for funding.” If it doesn’t work, “we really don’t have a back-up plan.”

Canada geese are protected unless proper permits are obtained. There are limited options for dealing with the problem because the farm is in the middle of Ottawa. Vineyards in southwestern Ontario use simulated gunshot sounds to scare birds away from grapes, but that is not possible in a residential area. Savard said the geese devour wheat, oats, soybeans and barley grown at the research farm. “It seems they will eat almost anything, and it is a real problem for our researchers,” he said. “I hope this works with provable results.” For Bella and Nell, it must be close to a dream job because the miscreant geese are easy targets. “They’re big and lazy and these fields are just such an attractive feeding area,” said Williams, whose company is also hired to deal with other urban bird problems in Ontario cities. She said Border Collies are perfect for the job because they are herders rather than retrievers. It means they want to chase the birds away rather than grab them and drag them back, which would be an issue for many urban residents witnessing the scene.

Welfare issue isn’t black and white

Cuts to animal welfare research will hurt, say livestock officials


The issue of animal welfare standards on farms is not as simple as critics like to believe, says Tim Lambert, chief executive officer of Egg Farmers of Canada. “I’d like to tell you that the issue is black and white but that’s not true at all,” he told MPs on the House of Commons agriculture committee last week. Egg Farmers is an example of the complexity, he said. Among its 1,000 farmer members, the group represents the gamut of egg production systems — organic, free-range, omega 3 and conventional cage housing among others. “It really puts us at something of a disadvantage in the public dialogue with animal rights groups because simply put, we’re not going to go out publicly and point out any disadvantages and strengths of the different systems. The activists tend to take a one-sided view that all cages are bad for layer production. That’s a really inaccurate portrayal of the reality of the situation.” Lambert was one of several witnesses during committee hearings to argue that farmers want good animal welfare systems because it is in their economic interests as well as part of their respect for animals. “A very key point that somehow gets lost in some of the debate is birds that aren’t healthy aren’t happy, they aren’t productive,” he said. “Therefore, the farmers have very much a vested interest in the welfare of their birds to ensure that they’re productive.” Later during the meeting, northern British Columbia Conservative MP Bob Zimmer pursued the point. Is there any benefit for farmers to cut corners that compromise animal health? “People involved in livestock agriculture are almost universally people who care about animals,” Lambert said. “That’s why they do it. They are always concerned with the welfare and health of their birds and keeping those birds healthy, safe, well-fed, appropriately watered and managing disease.” K. Robin Horel, president of the Canadian Poultry and Egg Processors Council, said the benefits of healthy animals move through the production chain. “Not only is it economically advantageous for the farmer to make sure the birds are healthy and well-treated, once the product gets to the processing plant it goes through inspection and healthy birds get through, non-healthy birds don’t go through,” he said. Chicken Farmers of Canada executive director Mike Dungate told MPs that while national industry animal care codes are voluntary, seven provinces have made them mandatory, all farmers are audited annually and 80 percent of Canadian chicken farmers have been certified to be adhering to the program.


Agriculture Canada cuts announced last month that targeted research staff were a serious blow to animal welfare research, say poultry industry officials. Across the livestock and poultry sectors, producers are facing increasing consumer and retail pressure to prove that their rearing, housing and slaughter practices are humane. Industry and government have been funding research to develop humane codes of practice and evidence of best ways forward. Last month, those efforts had a setback with Agriculture Canada cutbacks that closed down departmental poultry research, witnesses told

the House of Commons agriculture committee last week. K. Robin Horel, president of the Canadian Poultry and Egg Process o r s C o u n c i l , s a i d i t ha s b e e n responding to consumer concerns in part by funding the Poultry Welfare Centre at the University of Guelph. “The recent announcement of (Agriculture Canada) staff changes and the cessation of AAFC poultry research will have a negative impact on poultry research in Canada generally and on the future of the Poultry Welfare Centre specifically,” he said. He said members of the Canadian Poultry Research Council wrote a letter of concern to agriculture minister Gerry Ritz. Horel did not make it public. National Farm Animal Care Coun-

cil chair and former Canadian Pork Council president Edouard Asnong reinforced the point. “Science informs our deliberations at NFACC,” he told MPs. “We are concerned about recently announced cuts to agriculture and agri-food research, particularly in the area of animal welfare. Research and the resulting tech transfer are critical for the ongoing development of animal welfare initiatives in Canada.” Later, Guelph professor and Egg Farmers of Canada research chair in poultry welfare Tina Widowski said that while the animal welfare concern issue is “at an all-time high in Canada,” the recent government science cuts undermine the work. “The recent cut in AAFC has result-

ed in the loss of some of Canada’s top animal welfare scientists, both very established scientists and those that are up and coming,” she told committee. “They’ve contributed significantly to policy development and this at a time when there is an increasing demand for sciencebased animal welfare standards.” She said development of sciencebased rules on animal treatment, drug use and housing practices that are acceptable to processors, retailers and consumers are key for the industry. “It’s critical that research, industry and animal welfare policy continue to be supported at both the provincial and federal levels to keep Canadian producers competitive,” said Widowski.

Wild boar report provides options to Alberta ag minister Industry regulation | Survey of producers and area residents about management of animal pest delivered to government officials BY MARY MACARTHUR CAMROSE BUREAU

County officials across Alberta are hoping a decision is made soon on regulations or guidelines for wild boar farms in the province. A report on the various options for regulating the industry has been forwarded to agriculture minister Verlyn Olson’s office. “The paperwork has gone forward to the minister. It is working its way through the system,” said Vaughn Christensen, manager of inspection services with Alberta Agriculture.

Government officials surveyed wild boar producers, their neighbours and county officials this winter about problems with wild boar in parts of the province. County officials worry that the problem of feral wild boar will become worse without better regulations. Sows can have up to 10 offspring per litter and two litters per year. The species has no natural predators. “We’ve been dealing with this problem for quite a few years,” said Geoff Thompson, agricultural services manager with Lac Ste. Anne County.

ommitment To Growing


It’s the first time I have actually seen the department follow through with a survey. GEOFF THOMPSON AGRICULTURE SERVICES MANAGER

Agriculture Service Board members passed a resolution in January, asking the government to “fast track and initiate” a provincial strategy to eradicate wild boar as a pest in Alberta.

The province declared wild boar a pest in 2008, but county officials want tighter rules around farmed wild boar to prevent more animals from escaping. Christensen said the survey asked questions about the need to require producers to have better perimeter fences and possible identification tags similar to cattle. Thompson said he would like to see government implement regulations around the production of wild boar in the province. Government has ignored wild boar resolutions brought forward at Agricultural Service Board con-

ventions in previous years, he added. “It’s the first time I have actually seen the department follow through with a survey. I think that is positive news.” Olson said he knows wild boar are a concern in pockets of the province and that there is a feeling more needs to be done before the species become a more serious pest. “ There are all kinds of issues there having to do with fencing and a variety of potential solutions and I don’t have a report from the department with any recommendations, but I know t h e y h av e b e e n o u t t a l k i n g t o affected municipalities and sharing ideas and potential solutions,” he said. “I am waiting for some recommendations and waiting to go from there. I am part of the system, and it hasn’t reached my desk yet.”


BASF’s fipronil insecticide added to problem list FRANKFURT, Germany (Reuters) — The European Union’s food safety regulator has added a BASF insecticide to the list of crop chemicals it suspects of playing a role in declining bee populations. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) said May 27 that BASF’s fipronil poses an “acute risk to honeybees when used as a seed treatment for maize,” citing dust drift in particular. BASF has until June 14 to file a comment on the report with the European Commission, which will discuss a possible ban with EU government officials in July. The EU moved to ban three of the world’s most widely used pesticides for two years last month because of fears they are linked to a plunge in the population of bees critical to crop production. The ban affected neonicotinoids, which are produced mainly by Germany’s Bayer and Switzerland’s Syngenta, despite the EU’s 27 members failing to reach an agreement on the matter. BASF, which declined to provide fipronil sales figures, said the EFSA’s assessment does not highlight any new risk to bee health from approved uses of fipronil. “BASF and other experts remain convinced that the currently observed decline in bee populations results from other causes than use of seed treatment products containing fipronil,” it said. BASF said fipronil-based products have been on the market since 1993 and are used in more than 70 countries. Unlike neonicotinoids, fipronil is not widely used in Europe, with only five countries using it for corn production.




AG NOTES BARN CAT PROGRAM RETURNS The Saskatoon SPCA is again organizing a barn cat program. Cats that are unable to adapt to indoor living could be good barn cats and assist with pest control on farms and acreages. Each barn cat costs $25 to adopt. New owners should shelter their cats in a secure barn, building or stable and provide daily food and water and veterinary care as required. Each barn cat will be spayed or neutered before adoption and will be up to date on vaccinations, including for rabies. The agency has a separate wing of barn cats, which are sectioned off into two categories: barn buddies and barn hunters. Both will work well as pest control, but the hunters are more independent and strictly outdoor hunters, while the buddies

COMING EVENTS are usually more friendly but not suitable as house pets. For more information, or to apply for a barn cat, visit www.

Mini horses, mega fun Kids learn the ropes | Miniature horses small but mighty and a good way to learn control BY KAREN MORRISON SASKATOON NEWSROOM

SENLAC, Sask. — Smiles turned to alarm as a miniature horse bolted from the Senlac 4-H Achievement Day’s driving event on the sports grounds, squeezing between a ball diamond backstop and a parked car. A handful of adults and 11-yearold driver Christopher Wiens got the runaway stopped in a ditch behind the spectators’ stand filled with family and friends. Five minutes and a few tears later, Wiens and his horse, Bailey, returned to the field with his mother, Miranda, in the cart. “Learn to do by doing,” sometimes the hard way, is the motto for the 4-H program, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary in Canada this year. Interviewed earlier this breezy May day while attaching the bridle,

reins and child-sized cart, Wiens had conceded Bailey was a little finicky with the harness lately. “He usually doesn’t mind,” he said. Wiens, who grew up around horses of all sizes, also participates in a light horse project as a member of the Senlac 4-H Multiple Club. He expects to tackle the driving project again next year and encouraged others to give it a try. “I’d say to do it ’cause it’s a lot of fun,” he said. Despite the breakaway, Wiens held onto second place behind William Ganser, 12. That result was reversed in the showmanship and grooming event. Miranda Wiens said judges have a lot to look for in the driving event. “You’re judged on how nice you are harnessed, how you sit in the cart, how you hold yourself and

how it’s rigged,” she said. Ganser said a win in the light horse walk-trot event moments earlier probably helped boost his confidence going into the driving event with his horse, Chip. “I wouldn’t let the horse take off, used my voice and had a steady rein,” he said. Ganser called miniatures small but mighty. “They’re built strong. A 200 pound man in a cart can be pulled,” he said. “They’ll go through 10 foot snow drifts if they have to. If they have their hearts to it, they’ll do it.” He said each one also has its own personality. “My horse has attitude. His older brother is completely calm.” Members get together each week to learn how to train, groom and control their horses and attend clinics. Ganser said training includes

talking, petting, resting and rewarding. “Mainly you have to trust the horse and it has to trust you,” he said. Project leaders Debbie Ganser and Gordon Krupka guide the horse and cart at first while members hold the reins and the horse learns voice commands. “If your ground work and manners are learned first, it makes it a lot easier later on. You eliminate a lot of problems,” said Krupka. “They have to respect the handler’s space or they can step on your toes.” Miniatures are a good fit with younger 4-Hers. “It’s easier to learn on these little guys. It’s a good entry,” he said. SEE PAGE 21 FOR SENLAC ACHIEVEMENT DAY PHOTOS


The president of the rural Canada Post employees association says rural Canadians must speak up if they want to retain their service. Canada Post has launched a public consultation in the wake of a Conference Board of Canada report last month that predicted billion dollar deficits at the crown corporation by 2020 without service reductions and cost cutting. Canada Post said it needs to make fundamental changes to avoid the financial crisis. Leslie Schous, president of the Canadian Postmasters and Assistants’ Association representing rural postal workers, said last week rural service could be in line for cost cutting. She said rural service could be an easy target, even though it is one of the least expensive parts of the system. The former Saskatchewan rural postal employee said it is important for rural residents, who already have seen service levels cut, to speak up. “They are considering reducing the number of days of service, fewer post offices and no home deliver y,” Schous said. “They are looking at all of those things.” Canada Post is asking for customer feedback at Schous said scores of rural post offices have been closed despite a closure moratorium that has been in effect for almost two decades. “I think it is really important that rural people speak up because if our customers don’t come forward and say it is important to them to keep their postal service, Canada Post will say, ‘if they don’t care, why should we?’ ” she said.

Serve asparagus, greens fresh from the garden TEAM RESOURCES



othing tastes quite as good as fresh picked asparagus. A stem or two never reaches the house because I like to munch on them right in the yard. I have added chopped fresh asparagus to all of my salads lately, whether it is a caesar salad, a fresh mixed greens salad or egg salad sandwiches. I vary the size of the pieces, depending on the salad. I have also discovered that asparagus holds up well in marinated salads. Versatile spinach mixes well with the greens in fresh salads and with asparagus in stir fries and omelets, while fresh perennial herbs such as chives and mint, which pop up early in the garden, can be used to enhance many dishes. Fresh-from-the garden flavours wouldn’t be complete without rhubarb and early bearing strawberries. If your garden isn’t providing fresh produce yet, visit a local farmers market or a greenhouse that sells fresh-picked produce.

This is a low calorie, low fat dressing that is wonderful on fresh greens or a spinach salad.

The vinaigrette is a basic oil and vinegar dressing, usually made with three parts oil to one part vinegar. It can be flavoured with salt, pepper and a combination of herbs, spices, onions and mustard. The vinegar, salt, pepper and spices are mixed well using a wire whisk.

Make your wishes known in a document before remarrying A PRAIRIE PRACTICE



I am a middle-aged widower and I am planning to remarry. I want to provide for the adult children of my first marriage in my will. Do I need to do anything else?


You need a pre-nuptial agreement. Or, if you get married


Hemingway did it right THE MORE THINGS CHANGE …

before this step is taken, the agreement with your new spouse would be called an interspousal contract. Both documents have the same effect, and have different names simply because of when they are signed: before or after marriage. When you marry or enter into a common-law relationship (of two years’ duration or more, according to the law in Saskatchewan), you have legal obligations to provide for your spouse in your estate under the Family Property Act and The Dependents’ Relief Act. If you want to do something different than what those acts require you to do, which is leaving a major portion of your estate to your spouse,

then you and your spouse need to put together a proper agreement, with independent legal advice, to make those intentions clear and binding. It’s not good enough to put it in your wills. The two of you may agree that when the first dies, the assets of the deceased person will be distributed to his or her children when the surviving spouse finally dies. However, the sur viving spouse is free to change his or her will at any time until they die. And genuine as the promises might be when the couple makes their wills together, feelings may change when one of them has died and the survivor meets someone new and enters into

a new relationship. The couple’s wishes could also be overruled if one of the spouses dies and the survivor is no longer able to look after herself and is being cared for by someone else who has power of attorney: perhaps her adult child. Without an interspousal contract, the person who has power of attorney may decide that, regardless of what the parent may have agreed on when making the will, the estate should be sued to obtain further assets to support the surviving spouse. An inter-spousal contract should prevent such a court action from being successful. A pre-nuptial agreement or interspousal contract when entering a

second marriage is the only way to be sure that your children will have the share of your estate that you intended for them. Have it done by a lawyer and ensure that your spouse receives independent legal advice. It is a crucial step and is worth doing properly. It will give you and your spouse, your children and your spouse’s children peace of mind and a much better opportunity to have a good relationship into the future.

Foliar Micro-nutrients offer Application and Production Benefits



wanted to rap the CNN reporter’s knuckles with a ruler. It was the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings and a doctor at Massachusetts General Hospital was being interviewed. There were, he intoned, many grave injuries to lower extremities. He repeated the words “lower extremities” about six times in three minutes. Well, we know that doctors like to talk like that. A leg is so mundane, isn’t it, while a lower extremity supposedly connotes a higher intelligence. That’s why medical students are not allowed to read Hemingway, with his insistence on using short words. That’s why Hemingway did not title one of his famous novels A Farewell to Upper Extremities. (Letters to the editor pointing out that “arms” has various meanings will not be necessary.) This I know: Hemingway never appended the word “forward” to the word “going” as in “going forward.” He never wrote, or dreamed of writing: “The world breaks every one and going forward many are strong at the broken places.” Not only do doctors like big words like “myocardial infarction,” they also resort to Latin if they foresee any possibility that they will be understood by lesser beings. And if that isn’t good enough, they write prescriptions in a peculiar longhand that can be read only by members of a secret society. My beef with that CNN reporter was his enabling of the good doctor’s fancy talk. I see this muddling of the language to be a problem as we search for precision of meaning, not only at this point in time, but going forward.

Soil fertility is like a bank account: you can’t expect to keep successfully withdrawing unless you occasionally top it up. While farmers have long been used to applying macro-nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus, today’s successful producers also carefully manage their crop’s micro-nutrient requirements, such as boron, copper and zinc. If your crop is short one or more micro-nutrient, consider solving the problem with a convenient, effective and relatively inexpensive in-crop solution: foliar micronutrient application. “While in the past there hasn’t been a lot of micro-nutrient application except in irrigated lands, there is a lot more demand on our soil now. Where a micronutrient might have been marginally okay when we grew 35 or 40 bushels of wheat, now that we’re up to 60 and 70 bushels, we’ve gone from marginal to really deficient,” says Doug Penney, a senior coach with Agri-Trend Agrology Ltd.“ In cases where micro-nutrients are required, the cost of putting them on is more than covered by increased yield.”

© 2013 UFA Co-operative Ltd. All rights reserved. 130077

The leaves of crops deficient in certain micro-nutrients, including copper, manganese and zinc, often appear pale because the plants are not able to produce enough chlorophyll. Unfortunately, not all symptoms are obvious: for example, severe copper deficiency results in sterile pollen. “Producers should definitely be testing for micro-nutrient deficiency. Applying foliar micro-nutrients to correct any identified problems can be a very good solution. Fortunately, crops require micro-nutrients in much smaller amounts than they do for the macro-nutrients, so draw down is slower,” he adds. While many producers opt to broadcast or band their micro-nutrients at or before seeding, most micro-nutrients can be tank mixed with pesticides and foliar applied. Given the busyness of spring seeding, especially in a late spring like this year, delaying micro-nutrient application until into the growing season can be a major convenience. That said, the timing for a micro-nutrient application may not always coincide with

a required pesticide application, and the compatibility of the products should always be checked. Foliar application provides readily and immediately available micro-nutrients directly to growing plants, precisely when the plant requires that nutrient. In some cases, more than one application may be required. “Because most micro-nutrients are relatively immobile in the soil, the method of application is important. For example, copper is most effective when broadcast and thoroughly mixed into the topsoil. But, with the shift to zero-tillage, this is often not an option. If placed in a shallow band or seed-placed, copper may not be available when the crop needs it if the soil is dry. Therefore, foliar application at the early flag leaf stage is a good option,” says Penney. Finally, foliar application can save you money, as the minimized wastage and dilution means foliar micro-nutrients can be applied at a far lesser rate than would be needed in the soil.

However, the kids don’t appreciate it. When we ask for help around the house, both my daughter and son shrug us off and either disappear out the back door to be with their friends or sit defiantly in front of the television. What would it take to get some appreciation from our children for all that we have been doing for them? And how can we get them to help more around the house?


For a number of years the cause of the working mother has risen beyond the unusual, or the exceptional, to become what is expected of women in today’s world. In 2009, 72.9 percent of women with children 16 years old or younger were employed outside the home. That is almost double the number of working women in 1976. At that time, only 39.1 percent of mothers were employed elsewhere. The huge jump in numbers of mothers in the workplace represents more than a statistical landmark. It represents a culture change, one that calls for all of us to reconsider the roles of ever yone in the home, including working fathers and the

has been well documented and supported. It has filtered through our education system, with young boys registering for home economics or house maintenance and developing skills to facilitate their participation in the home when they mature into their own families. The father in today’s home is expected to prepare meals, take his turn tucking the kids in at night and pick up odds and ends scattered throughout the living room. Not all fathers are participating in their new roles, of course, but enough are doing so to ease some of the household burden on many working mothers. Unfortunately, the changes in roles for children have not kept up to the new look in the modern home. Traditionally, children were expected to follow gender differentiations when they were taking on their chores. Young girls spent their time in the kitchen with Mom while the boys headed out to the yard to give Dad a hand mowing the lawn, feeding the cattle and doing heavy machinery maintenance. That simple formula no longer works. The house is no longer an exclusive female purview. Everyone can be expected to jump in to keep food on the table and the whole place neat and tidy, and everyone includes sons as well as daughters. The logic is simple: more needs to be done around the house by more people. The flaw in all of this appears to be the guilt a good many working mothers are taking into their vocational settings. Just to make matters worse, and to heighten the guilt, Grandma will invariably send over a fresh batch of home baked biscuits to remind Mom that she would better serve her family by pulling back from the workplace and spending more time in the kitchen, where she too could mix up a batch of biscuits to serve with that pot of freshly cooked stew. Not much change is likely to happen until mothers collectively let go of the cultural guilt and replace it with genuine appreciation for contributions they are making to their family incomes. Once the guilt is gone, the rest is easy. Of course, kids should be expected to help more around the house. It is not a matter of asking them to help, but more a concern of who is to do what. Whose turn is it to maintain the dishwasher and who will be vacuuming the main floor? And, oh by the way, children don’t deserve a private bedroom unless they are prepared to take pride in keeping the room orderly and tidy. Kids do not normally show a lot of appreciation for what either of their parents are doing to enrich their lives. Apart from the occasional Mother’s Day card or a big hug at Christmas, you are not likely to get the feedback from your children you probably deserve. That comes later, when your children have grown up and left the home and they show up one day on your doorstep to let you know that you are the greatest.

Saskatchewan family focuses on the small things Creatures galore | Peacocks, pigs and miniature horses populate Muhr farm BY CHRISTALEE FROESE FREELANCE WRITER

ODESSA, Sask. — The peacocks are waiting for their babies to hatch. The miniature donkeys are nibbling on hay. The chickens are drinking water. The potbelly pig is grunting in its pen. The rabbit is nursing its bunnies. And Dolly, the miniature horse, is waiting patiently at the hitching post as her seven-year-old owner finishes up chores. Brooke Muhr will get to Dolly soon, but first there are dogs to be fed, llamas to be watered and guinea hens to be checked. Brooke and her 10-year-old brother, Jordan, are in charge. With about 100 small animals from miniature horses, mules and donkeys to guinea hens, geese and bunnies, it means these farm kids have little time to spare. The rewards for the hard work are two-fold: the money from selling an animal and the fun when it comes time to host friends at their pet-filled farm. “We haven’t butchered anything,” said Shawn Muhr, Brooke and Jordan’s father. “We sell the animals, and the kids get all of the money.” The income from the sale of geese, rabbits, donkeys, horses, mules and hens has paid for an all-terrain vehicle for Jordan and several new wardrobes for Brooke. With bunnies sometimes selling for $40 each and geese for $60, it means that the profits for a youngster can be substantial. “We find doing it this way, it shows the kids more respect for their money,” said Shawn. “When they buy something for themselves, they really take care of it because they know how much work it has taken to get it.” Shawn and his wife, Tara, have always had a love of animals. Shawn remembers enjoying birds as a child, which led to pet peacocks and pheas-

ants as well as an incubator in the family home. Young Tara could often be found with the baby calves on her farm, and it was always her dream to own a donkey. “My dad wouldn’t let me get one for the farm, so I knew if I ever got my own farm, that’s one of the first things I’d have.” Tara’s dream came true 12 years ago when she married Shawn and they bought a farm together. It wasn’t long before she had her first miniature donkey, Angel, which is now part of a herd of 35 tiny horses, donkeys and mules. Every equine on the Muhr farm has a name and is part of the family. The children part with four or five animals a year when they know they are going to good homes. Tara leaves all of the animal duties to the children, but she does like to

spend time with her donkey and the horses. “I just love coming out here and walking amongst them, feeding them treats, playing with them and just hanging out,” she said. Shawn, a full-time farm chemical area manager, makes hay for the animal, but leaves all of the chores to the children. His real passion is taxidermy, so he spends every spare moment of his time in his on-farm shop. He has mounted caribou, grizzly bears, wolverines and elk. With nine freezers on site, Shawn and his helper, Jordan, have enough work to keep them busy for years. “The best part is when people come to get their finished animals. They’re always happy because they can’t wait to see that trophy.”

Soybean aphids prove unpredictable nuisance Biocontrol | Natural predators are the best way to manage the pest BY REBECA KUROPATWA FREELANCE WRITER

Soybean aphid populations rarely reach economic levels in Asia, where the insect occurs naturally. Research indicates that predators, parasitoids and pathogens limit aphid population increases on that continent. “In North America, the initial invasion resulted in a sudden explosion of aphids, with surveys showing natural enemies weren’t sufficiently abundant to reduce aphid numbers,” said Peter Mason, a research scientist with Agriculture Canada. Soybean aphid is considered a serious threat on this continent because it can transmit devastating viral diseases to soybeans and other nearby crops. Mason said long-term natural enemies provide sustainable suppression of soybean aphids. “A mix of native pathogens, generalist predators and parasitoids, established exotic predators and specialist parasitoids introduced from the region where North American soybean aphid populations originated will provide a suite of natural enemies to suppress aphid populations below economic levels,” he said. Parasitic wasps feed on and attack soybean aphids, attracted by odours emitted by damaged plant tissue and aphids. “The aphid is paralyzed and an egg is laid inside its body,” Mason said. “The aphid mummy remains on the plant while the parasitoid completes development and emerges from a hole made in the mummy.” This cycle is repeated several times during the growing season, and more aphids are killed as parasitoid populations build, preventing them from increasing dramatically. Mason said a long-term goal for soybean aphid bio-control is ensuring that the natural enemy complex is sustained by implementing agronomic practices to conserve natural enemy communities. “Such practices must be integrated into a biologically based pest management program that builds on an understanding of soybean aphid biology and its interactions with the natural enemy community,” said Mason. “Possibly by introducing additional highly specific, exotic natural enemies, it would expand natural control of soybean aphid populations.” He said invasions into new areas are unpredictable because of abiotic and biotic factors such as climate, plant resistance and already present natural enemy communities. “Ongoing research will expand our understanding of the dynamics and interactions of soybean aphids with its natural community, defining factors limiting soybean aphid infestations and providing guidance to develop best management practices for this exotic pest,” he said. John Gavloski, an extension entomologist with Manitoba Agriculture, said soybean aphids don’t likely over-winter in the province and need to blow in from the south. “They can be a serious threat to soybeans in Manitoba, just not an annual problem,” he said. “Even in areas where they do overwinter successfully, they aren’t an economical problem every year.” Generalist predators such as lady beetles, lacewings and hover fly lar-

vae can help reduce the population of soybean aphids some years. “There may be potential for the releasing of additional soybean aphid parasitoids,” Gavloski said. “The Asian parasitoid, binodoxys communis, was released in the U.S. to help manage soybean aphids. Some research suggests generalist predators may currently be playing a larger role in regulating soybean aphid populations than parasitoids. More soybean aphid parasitoids research would certainly be helpful. “The role of pathogenic fungi in controlling soybean aphids needs further research to help determine if overuse


or improper timing of fungicides could increase aphid populations.” Gavloski said he’s not sure if soybean aphids will get worse if soybean acres increases. “With some newer arrival insects, populations can be quite bad initially and then stabilize as natural enemy

populations adapt,” he said. “A lot of research will likely continue on soybean aphids. Soybean aphid resistant varieties may be available as a management tool, but aphid biotypes can develop to overcome such resistance.” He said it would be good to register insecticides specific to aphids and harmless to key natural soybean aphid enemies. “Such insecticides are registered in Canada for other commodities, but not soybeans. Methods of enhancing and conserving a soybean field’s populations of generalist predators and parasitoids are needed.”

Officials hope that research will reveal long-term solutions for managing soybean aphids. | JOHN GAVLOSKI PHOTO

Kazakhstan spending big on cattle

Dairy official calls U.S. policy hypocritical Supply management | Dairy Farmers of Canada head says existing dairy imports are generous BY BARRY WILSON




Alberta agriculture minister Verlyn Olson was struck during his 10-day trade mission to Kazakhstan by the country’s similarities to Alberta. Driving in Kazakhstan made Olson think of driving on Highway 36 between Hanna and Brooks, but with fewer roads and fences. Those kinds of similarities have governments and agricultural businesses excited about the possibility of doing business in a country rich in energy resources and wanting to grow its agriculture industry. The Kazakhstan government has set aside $900 million to invest in its agriculture industry over the next few years. That’s equivalent to the value of 75,000 head of cattle. “This country has great oil wealth,” Olson said. “They definitely have money to spend and are wanting to diversify away from their oil economy.” Exports of Alberta agricultural goods to Kazakhstan, mostly cattle, pigs and horse meat, jumped to $5 million last year from $875,000 in 2011. However, a trade mission to Kazakhstan in 2012 was estimated to have generated an additional $25 million in livestock, genetics and goods and services. Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency board chair Dr. David Chalack said there are tremendous opportunities in Kazakhstan, especially in the cattle industry, with its similarities to Alberta. “The demand for live cattle, semen, embryos and services is truly very significant. I would describe it as a new frontier,” said Chalack. “There are all kinds of opportunities.” Gordon Stephenson, general manager of the Canadian Hereford Association, has been to Kazakhstan three times, including the latest trade mission with the federal and Alberta agriculture ministers. About 4,000 head of Hereford genetics have been exported to Kazakhstan and Russia in the last four years. These kinds of trade missions help cement par tnerships between countries, especially with competition from the United States and Australia. Part of the Hereford association’s interest is a partnership with Lakeland College to develop the Almaty Farm School in Kazakhstan to teach cattle managers how to deal with purebred cattle operations. Kazakhstan’s native cattle are called Whiteface, which originated from Herefords in the 1960s and 1970s but have adapted to the harsher climate.

A Ca nad i an d ai r y le a d e r ha s accused Americans of double talk as they try to use Trans-Pacific Partnership trade negotiations to win more dairy product access into Canada. Dairy Farmers of Canada executive director Richard Doyle told the House of Commons international trade committee May 27 that while the United States is targeting Canada’s supply managed protections, it is not willing to negotiate its own restrictions on New Zealand dairy products or Australian sugar. “I think the U.S. is talking out of both sides of their mouth, to be quite frank,” he said. Doyle also told supportive MPs from all parties that despite critics’ view of supply management as a closed import system, dairy imports into Canada exceed that of many of

its international critics. “Between six percent and eight percent of our Canadian dairy consumption is supplied by imported dairy products coming in tariff-free, which makes Canada more generous than the U.S. or (European Union) in terms of access,” he said. “Predictability and import control are not equal to no imports.” He said the World Trade Organization has ruled that Canada’s fixed domestic prices means its dairy exports are subsidized and therefore limited. That restricts exports to one percent of production. As a result, the industry could not benefit from new export sales opportunities even if a trade deal was reached that opened dairy markets. “Any market opening, therefore, even if it were reciprocal, would come at the expense of Canadian dairy farmers,” said Doyle. Government and opposition MPs

who support supply management jumped on DFC’s claim that Canada’s dairy market is more open than some of its most vehement international opponents. “There’s more access allowed into Canada for dairy products versus access we have into Europe or the United States, but that’s not well known,” said Prince Edward Island Liberal Wayne Easter. “We’ve somehow lost the messaging fight.“ Ontario Conservative MP and former dairy farmer Bev Shipley agreed. “I wish we could get the message

out more,” he said. Under questioning from MPs about how the dairy industry sees the TPP negotiation in which supply management is a target, Doyle said both Liberal and Conservative governments have protected the supply management system in previous trade negotiations. He said the industry trusts the government to protect its interests. The dairy farmer lobby is included in briefings from the government on the talks. However, Doyle said that unlike previous trade negotiations, industry representatives this time do not have a text of the proposed deal being negotiated. “I think the lack of access to the text is what makes most of the industries, including the experts, very nervous about a negotiation where you aren’t able to do a proper analysis of what is on the table,” he said.


TO SPRAY The only time you shouldn’t spray is when you have a poor looking crop and you are not in a fusarium head blight (FHB) area.

If your crop doesn’t look good, but you are in an FHB area, a fungicide application can still pay for itself and safeguard the yield and quality of your grain. Do some calculations and if your potential disease risk and ROI exceed the cost of application – you should protect your crop with a fungicide.

If your crop looks good, you will definitely want to protect your investment with a fungicide application. Which product will provide the most bang for your buck? It depends on crop staging, current disease pressure and potential disease risks. Here is a quick chart to help make your fungicide decision easier.

The curious case of the solitary headstone Theories abound | Why is Mary Fitzpatrick’s grave outside of the cemetery boundaries in Granum, Alta? STORIES & PHOTOS BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

» Mary Fitzpatrick lies on the south-

western side of the Granum, Alta., cemetery. Its location is the source of much speculation.

» A stonecutter whose son died in a

1927 farm accident did him proud with an ornate gravestone that includes renditions of the boy’s cap and shoes.

GRANUM, Alta. — A caragana hedge encloses the Granum graveyard, marking its boundary with leafy greenery. But Mary Fitzpatrick’s grave sits alone outside the hedge, its headstone and wrought iron enclosure in full view of heavy traffic along Alberta’s busiest highway. “Sept. 5, 1865 – Apr. 16, 1908,” the stone reads. “Beloved wife of E.R. Chugg.” The outlying grave has long been the subject of rumour, speculation and inquiry, said Mike Sherman of the Granum Historical Board. “We get questions about that grave from all over North America. They see that grave outside the cemetery and of course, like any small town, there’s all sorts of rumours and stories that go around that grave.” One rumour has it that the lady committed suicide and thus could not be buried in consecrated ground. On the seamier side, another rumour suggests she was a “scarlet woman” left out for the same reason. “The family, and the family is still here, their side of the story … and it’s a very plausible one as well, is that she was buried there before the official boundary of the cemetery was laid out and therefore it was just a survey error,” said Sherman. However, that doesn’t make for such a good story, he admitted. It also leads one to question the plan used by the caragana hedge planters that came along later. However, Sherman’s favourite story involves Ebenezer Chugg, the “E” in the E.R. noted on the gravestone, and Granum’s fee of $1 per foot for digging graves. “He was notoriously a tight man, very frugal and so the other story is that he was too tight to pay the five bucks to have his wife buried inside the cemetery so he buried her just outside.” The historical board is working on a walking tour of the graveyard, a companion to its walking tour of the town. The outlying grave won’t be the only interesting tale it will tell. Sherman recounts the story of another late resident of Granum who insisted he be buried with a can of snuff and a bottle of beer. “He wasn’t sure which way he was going but he wanted to make sure that whether he was going to heaven or hell, he had the snuff and the beer with him anyway.” Then there’s the heartbreaking grave of 11-year-old J. M. Maclean, a stonecutter’s son, who was killed in a farming accident. The father carved replicas of the boy’s cap and shoes for the grave, now heavily adorned with lichen and showing the weather of the past 86 years. “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so,” reads a stone at the foot. The Granum cemetery dates back to the late 1800s. The walking tour is a work in progress by the board’s eight volunteers, who also operate the museum and look after the cenotaph.

Traffic rushes past Mary Fitzpatrick’s grave near busy Highway 2. Sherman said the former cemetery caretaker died recently, taking much of the history with him. “We’ve kind of picked up the torch and will continue on,” said Sherman.

“The town’s done a lot of work as far as marking graves and whatnot are concerned, and we thought it would be of interest to our visitors as well, to put together this little walking tour of

our cemetery.” Granum, population 445 at last official count, is 25 kilometres north of Fort Macleod, Alta., just off Highway 2.

A small town with a rich history Granum’s museum a ‘labour of love’ filled with documents and memorabilia GRANUM, Alta. — Failing to tip your hat to the mayor of Granum could net offenders a 25 cent fine or one day in jail. Spitting on the sidewalk, ditto. Those bylaws are still on the books, says former Granum mayor and current historical board member Mike Sherman. Though not enforced, they remain a testament to the town’s pride in its interesting past. “It never ceases to amaze me the number of people that have come through this little town and have left their footprint,” said Sherman. He and seven other historical board members look after the museum, adding to its collection and taking turns opening the facility on weekends. Inside are treasures from the famed Granum White Sox, the famed rodeo bronc Midnight and the famed farmers who were named wheat kings at Toronto’s Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. The small town north of Fort Macleod, Alta., now bears the Latin name for grain. It once had a less flattering moniker. It was called Leavings. The site, established before Alberta became a province, was on the wagon train route from Fort Calgary to Fort Whoop-Up in Lethbridge, said Sherman. “When they left the creek to cut across inland, it was called Leavings, and Leavings was nothing more than a board nailed to a tree at that point in time.” The museum is housed in the only known wooden jail in southern Alberta and possibly all of Canada. Built in 1905, its single cell is intact,

complete with creaking door and stout leg irons at the ready. Leavings had two or three North West Mounted Police officers at the time. Their four horses were housed at the livery across the street. “Granum was quite notorious. That cell was used,” said Sherman. Harry Longabaugh, also known as the Sundance Kid, may never have occupied the jail, but he did pass through town on occasion. “He actually ranched west of here. He was a cowboy and was part owner of a saloon in Calgary. Drew his gun once and never fired it,” said Sherman, shattering the myths of the Hollywood movie. The walls of the museum bear photos and clippings of the town’s first indoor bathroom installed in the W.A. Chase building, where no expense was spared in making it “comfortable as well as interesting” in 1909. Another store long gone was a combination hardware, furniture and undertaking establishment. “They’ll build you a coffin and they’ll put you in it. One stop shopping right there,” Sherman said with a laugh. Granum had seven elevators in its heyday. Two burned down over the years and the rest were demolished when the rail line was removed. Sherman said Granum’s history is forged in fire. It has had four major blazes, the first in 1910 and the most recent in 1997. “We’ve tried to burn the place down four times. One of these days we’re going to get it right.” The town has a proud sporting history in the Granum White Sox,

which held the provincial title from 1954 to 1958 and drew players from all over North America. The team was run by Granum area rancher George Wesley, who would recruit players but ostensibly hire them as ranch hands so they could be paid but retain their amateur status, said Sherman. Former Toronto Blue Jays manager Pat Gillick once pitched a no-hitter for the Granum team. Sherman helped organize a players’ reunion in 2011, attended by many former team members. “What amazed me was this was after 50, 60 years and they still held Granum in such high esteem that they came from wherever they could to attend this little reunion in this little prairie town.” As for Midnight, the famous bucking horse that was never ridden, Granum lays claim to the stallion even though nearby Fort Macleod often does the same. Midnight died in Alberta, but that wasn’t the end of the story. “In the 1990s, his remains were exhumed and sent to Oklahoma City where he was reburied in the Cowboy Hall of Fame. He’s the first horse ever to be inducted.” The town lays claim to several wheat kings, among them William Duerloo in 1956 and Doug Mackintosh in 1959. There’s much more history and memorabilia as well. Sherman said a sign on the museum tells visitors whom they can call to get a personal tour. “We’re very proud of it,” he said. “It’s nice to show off our little town. It’s a labour of love.”

A small village in Manitoba’s Pembina Valley may have love to thank for being Canada’s oldest 4-H club. History says that E. Ward Jones, an employee with the provincial agriculture department, used his influence to start the program in Roland as a to way help a local school teacher, Adelaide Graham. Graham was going to be the 4-H leader in Roland, and Jones, a secret admirer, offered her every assistance. The couple eventually married and Roland’s 4-H club became Canada’s first in 1913. The club celebrated its 100th anniversary May 31. In those days, the agriculture department gave each new 4-H member one dozen eggs from good laying hens, seed potatoes and good quality seed of fodder corn. In the fall, the communities held a fair where the chickens, corn, and potatoes were judged. Seven other 4-H clubs started in Manitoba in 1913 in the towns of Darlingford, Manitou, Neepawa, Oak Lake, Starbuck, Stonewall and Warren. In 1952, the name was changed from Boys and Girls Clubs to 4-H in keeping with the name of the 4-H clubs in the United States. 4-H started with a rural and agricultural focus, mainly as a way to train new farmers. However, its programs are much more diverse today with an emphasis on life skills. The four Hs come from the pledge: “I pledge my head to clearer thinking, my heart to greater loyalty, my hands to larger service, my health to better living for my club, my community and my country.” Manitoba has more than 200 4-H clubs with more than 3,500 members. More than half live on farms, 30 percent live in rural non-farm

areas and 14 percent are urban. Beef, horse, food and woodworking programs are the most popular. “To be a part of 4-H, you don’t have to live on a farm,” said Kyla Orchard, head leader of the Roland Home Ec Club and curator of the Roland 4-H Museum.


“There are beef and horse projects, but there are also sewing, cooking, photography and many more projects to choose from.” Orchard was a member for nine years and has been a leader for 16 years. “4-H has always been a part of my life,” she said. “My family has always been a part of 4-H.” The Roland Club had 15 members this year from seven to 16 years of age. The village has one club today, but previously had as many as three: a home ec club, a beef club, and a canter-horse club. “We’re all one program, but the projects and happenings in each club are different,” she said. “I hope 4-H will continue growing and teaching the youth life skills they need.” The 4-H museum is housed in a former Bank of Hamilton building built in 1902. It is open from 1-4 p.m. Monday to Friday in July and August. The club will mark its 100th anniversary by rededicating the cairn that was originally erected for the 50th anniversary.

Crushing concrete for new roads

Survey shows support for credit unions

Recycling firm | Sask. company repurposes materials from demolished buildings



PSI Technologies Inc. doesn’t mess around when it takes on a recycling project. In a single day, the Saskatoonbased engineering company can crush and recycle as much as 2,500 tonnes of material that would otherwise be dumped in municipal landfills. PSI specializes in recycling used concrete, mostly collected from demolished commercial and industrial buildings in Saskatoon and surrounding communities. The material is crushed, sorted, stockpiled and sold to construction companies that use it primarily for road construction. Last week, PSI employees crushed thousands of tonnes of concrete collected from a former hospital in Humboldt, Sask., and a pair of recently demolished churches. PSI project engineer Duane Guenther said any construction project that uses gravel or natural aggregate can be built with recycled concrete at a similar cost. Crushed concrete also functions as effectively as gravel or rock aggregate or better, said Guenther. It has rough edges — also known as aggregate angular ity — which improves adherence to other road building materials, including fresh asphalt. The presence of residual cement in recycled concrete also improves adhesion, resulting in a more durable roadway. “Using the crushed concrete gives us a better structure on roads because it’s is all fractured … and it holds together really well,” Guenther said. “But when you’re talking about gravel or rock that’s been mined out of a gravel pit … you’ll often have rounded edges, which don’t quite have as much capacity.” PSI got into the recycling business after it recognized an opportunity to acquire used concrete at a low cost, enhance its value and sell it as an alternative construction material to local contracting companies. Demolition companies usually pay tipping fees to get rid of used concrete at local landfill sites. PSI began testing the material and determined that crushed concrete was a viable alternative to gravel and rock-based aggregate. The company now has a crushing site a few kilometres east of Saskatoon where material is trucked in, processed and stockpiled. Equipment at the site includes the province’s largest mobile jaw crusher, which handles concrete, rock and other materials. The crusher, one of several on site, was manufactured in Wisconsin by Lippman Milwaukee Inc. One of the constant challenges facing PSI is convincing contractors that recycled concrete performs as well as natural aggregate. Guenther previously worked as a project engineer with the City of


Duane Guenther, senior project manager at PSI Technologies, says crushed concrete is a cost competitive construction product that can be used on its own or mixed with gravel to meet customers’ specifications. Concrete first passes through a jaw grinder before a large magnet separates the steel rebar from crushed concrete. | BRIAN CROSS PHOTO Saskatoon and was involved in a trial known as the GreenStreet Project. It used crushed concrete and crushed asphalt to rebuild sections of 10 streets in Saskatoon. Eighty-eight percent of the material used in the project was recycled. The GreenStreet project showed positive results, confirming what PSI performance models had suggested. A number of construction companies in Saskatchewan are now using the material, although acceptance by the public sector has taken longer than expected. The City of Saskatoon recently indicated that it will begin using recycled concrete aggregate in some city projects. PSI can produce more than 500,000 tonnes of crushed concrete aggregate per year, although annual tonnage is currently closer to 50,000 tonnes. Sources of used concrete are numerous, although hauling the material can significantly increase processing costs. PSI’s crushing equipment is mobile and can be relocated if necessary. The company accepts deliveries of unset concrete, rock, used asphalt and other materials, which allows companies to avoid tipping fees.

“Concrete is probably the most common material that comes in,” said Guenther. “As far as source material goes, it’s probably the most (plentiful).” He said more material would be recycled in the province if tipping fees at municipal landfill sites were higher. Tipping fees are relatively inexpen-

sive in Saskatchewan, so the monetary incentive to keep material out of landfills is often too small to warrant the extra efforts associated with recycling. PSI recently attempted to secure 15,000 tonnes of material from a demolished school, but the contractors in charge of demolition opted instead to truck the material to a landfill and pay tipping fees.

Canada’s small businesses say credit unions are the best suppliers of financial services for their sector, according to a survey of almost 13,000 small and medium-sized businesses. The survey was conducted by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business and published last week. Respondents said local credit unions were most willing to lend, offering better terms and lower fees. Credit union account managers were also rated the best at responding to small-business client needs and understanding their issues. The chartered banks scored far lower in the survey, and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce was rated the worst among big banks. HSBC was judged the worst of all lenders. The Bank of Montreal and ScotiaBank were rated the best of the major national chartered banks. “Overall, credit unions do the best job of serving entrepreneurs,” CFIB research vice-president Doug Bruce said when releasing the report. “Banks need to pay close attention to the report’s findings if they are serious about serving the small business market.” The CFIB also said the survey, last done in 2010, revealed a “disturbing trend” about bank ser vice that favours large over small. “The smaller the business, the lower the bank score,” it said. “Compared to larger businesses, smaller firms have a tougher time getting the financing they need from their bank.” CIBC also scored the lowest in the 2010 membership survey. The national small business lobby said financing is the lifeblood for many of its members. More than one-third applied for financing during the previous year, including new loans, lines of credit and increased credit lines. The purposes ranged from buying new equipment to purchasing inventory. “Credit unions dominate in servicing the smallest business,” said the report. “This is true for SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) of all sizes — micro, small and mid sized.”




MANITOBA SOUTHWEST A storm dumped 50 to 100 millimetres of rain on many parts of southern Manitoba May 30 and 31.

The rain halted seeding for a number of days. The precipitation could have the greatest impact on cropland near the U.S. border. The region along the border received 75 to 100 mm of rain in the middle of May. Seventy-five to 80 percent of winter wheat fields have been reseeded

in southwestern Manitoba because of poor plant stands. CENTRAL Growers in western parts of the region have reseeded winter wheat


because of inadequate plant stands. Many producers have completed seeding. Farmers who aren’t finished will be significantly delayed by late May rain. Diamondback moth counts are low. Aster leafhoppers have not appeared in significant numbers. NORTHWEST


The moisture should boost pasture conditions, but warm weather is needed to stimulate growth. Producers continue to move livestock to pasture. More soybeans have been planted than previous years, particularly east of Dauphin. EASTERN

FS 38 Gas Trimmer

Seeding in the Red River Valley and east of the Red is basically complete. It’s uncertain how many corn acres have been seeded. Two weeks of good weather provided a window to plant grain corn, but Manitoba is unlikely to reach its predicted target of 400,000 acres. Livestock water is now rated as adequate after last year’s extremely dry summer, which depleted water levels.

Producers in the southern Interlake are essentially finished seeding. Growers farther north are farther behind. Winter wheat is rated as fair to poor in the region. Warm temperatures are needed to boost pasture growth.

NORTH Seeding progress tripled over much of the area, thanks to warm and dry weather. Ten percent of acres will remain unseeded because of excess moisture. Large amounts of precipitation fell, with the Spiritwood area receiving the most with 28 mm. Topsoil moisture on more than three-quarters of cropland is satisfactory. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is 90 percent adequate. More than half the pastures are in good condition. One hundred percent of livestock producers have indicated they have sufficient livestock water supplies. Localized flooding, high winds and hail have damaged some emerging crops, but overall growing conditions are good. Fertilizer shortages have been reported in some areas. Many roads and fields are still wet and inaccessible, but most producers are managing to work around them.


Saskatchewan farmers have generally made up for a late start to seeding. All regions made significant progress in the past week despite rainfall in most areas. The southwest is furthest advanced while the northeast is least advanced.

Slightly later than average start to growing season not expected to affect crops. Heavy rainfall reported in some areas. Rain halted spraying operations in most regions but was generally welcome.

Weed growth has been heavy and producers are trying to spray herbicides when the winds are calm. Some areas reported fertilizer delivery delays and shortages. Pasture growth has been slow and some areas would welcome a rain to help things along.

Many producers will soon be done seeding on the west side, while the east side is making excellent progress. It’s estimated that two to seven percent of acres will remain unseeded because of excess moisture. Much of the area received significant rainfall, which brought high winds, localized flooding and hail damage to some parts. The Coronach area led the province with 56 millimetres of rainfall. Topsoil moisture conditions are good, averaging 80 percent adequate. Hayland and pasture topsoil is also averaging 80 percent adequate. The majority of the area’s pastureland is generally in good condition. CENTRAL Seeding progress has more than doubled in the last week and is generally on track with the five-year average. Five to 10 percent of acres will remain unseeded because of excess moisture. Seeding was slowed after large amounts of rainfall fell over most areas. Humboldt led the area with 51 mm of rainfall. Cropland topsoil and hay and pasture moisture conditions are all rated as good. The condition of more than half of all pastures throughout the area is also in good shape. There’s excellent water sup-

Economist likes what the future holds Sask. positioned well | Consumer confidence will lift resource economy: EDC official BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The top economist with Export Development Canada is painting a rosy picture of the global economic outlook and the future of Saskatchewan’s agri-food sector. EDC vice-president and chief economist Peter Hall told members of the Saskatchewan Trade and E x p o r t Pa r t n e r s h i p May 2 9 i n Saskatoon that key economic indicators are pointing to strong economic growth, increasing consumer confidence and generally good times ahead for the global economy. It bodes well for agricultural producers in Western Canada and related sectors such as potash and manufacturing, he added. The demand for food, particularly meat, will continue to grow as the global economy gains steam, especially in emerging economies. “The emerging market middle class is not going to be kinder to any other province than Saskatchewan,” Hall said. “When emerging market citizens get into the middle class, studies show … that they consume more and they consume higher quality. And you know where they start? They start with food, and they start eating more meat.” Hall said demand for meat-based protein will grow significantly, adding further support to markets for forages, feed grains, fertilizer and fuel. It will also support prices for other agricultural crops grown in Western Canada. He said increased meat production will require more grain and increased productivity on marginal land. “This new meat consumption will put exponential pressure on the world’s crops … and that’s a great news story for the long-term future of this province, not only for foodstuffs but for fertilizer and also for agricultural machinery,” Hall said. “The long-term future for these sectors is absolutely rosy. I couldn’t be more bullish about it.” Hall cautioned that it could take a year or so for potash pr ices to rebound. Global demand for potash is soft, but he expects prices to strengthen as global supplies are drawn down. Hall said the global economy is still adjusting from the economic meltdown that occurred in 2008-09. Capital investments have been constrained for the past four years and many companies are only now beginning to see signs of economic recovery and sustained growth. He said bond rates have returned to pre-crisis levels in Europe. As well, banks are lending more money, and the mountain of surplus goods produced before the economic crisis has been drawn down. Investors who had been reluctant to enter the market since 2009 are now reassessing the landscape and seeing an economy w ith more upside potential and less risk. Hall pointed to the American housing market as a key bellwether. Home prices bottomed out in many major American markets during the post-crisis period, and U.S. housing starts slumped.

Low consumer confidence, rising unemployment and reduced lending meant many new families were unable or unwilling to buy homes and take on extra debt. After four years of constraint and adjustment, an historically high proportion of young U.S. families do not own their own homes. He said debt to income ratios have also improved, and overextension of personal credit is no longer an ominous concern. The demand for new homes will increase and housing starts will rebound as investor and consumer confidence returns and fundamental

demand for North American goods is restored, he added. Retail spending on home furnishings and appliances will follow. Hall said Saskatchewan should be gearing up for growth and asking important questions about its productive capacity. “We have significant constraints to our growth going forward,” he said. “We may not actually have the capacity to facilitate all the growth that’s coming our way.” Labour, capital and additional infrastructure capacity will be needed. “Have we got enough capital to

Peter Hall, vice-president and chief economist at Export Development Canada, says emerging middle class markets will be eager to consume higher quality foods. | ROBIN BOOKER PHOTO facilitate all of the projects that are on the table?” he said. “Do we have enough warm bodies inside the province to do the work that’s actually coming our way? And

even if we can do all of those things, do we have enough transportation infrastructure to take the stuff that we have generated inside the province and get it to market?”

Horses help teamsters break ground and seed Old-fashioned farming | Group would like to pass on knowledge and skills to a new generation BY CALVIN DANIELS FREELANCE WRITER

RAMA, Sask. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Horsepower was on display at a recent demonstration of heritage spring seeding techniques. Teamsters from northeastern Saskatchewan gathered near Rama to hitch their big horses to vintage plows, cultivators, discs, harrows and seed drills to plant a few acres of crop as spectators gathered to watch. For those holding the reins, it was a day to keep alive their long-held love for working horses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been playing with horses all my life,â&#x20AC;? said Norval Budd of Kelliher, Sask., as he hitched his four horses to a cultivator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started harnessing horses when I was about eight.â&#x20AC;? However, a tractor soon arrived on the farm and horses were retired from field work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we were soon back to horses for winter chores,â&#x20AC;? he said, something he still does. Rae Rosenkerr of Preeceville, Sask., said he can remember horses at work, but a Ford tractor arrived on his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farm just before he would have started working with the big horses. Rosenkerr still felt a connection to

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the love of horses. Everythingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so nice and quiet (working them). Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no roar of the tractor and clanging of machinery,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can actually hear the mould

Duncan Arthur of Preeceville also has a long passion for horses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess most of my life, Dad always worked a team,â&#x20AC;? he said. He still uses horses today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Horses are always used for chores and stuff like that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing what they can do in some places and no diesel fuel.â&#x20AC;? Lloyd Smith of Pelly, Sask., who also grew up with horses, used them to grow nine acres of wheat last year. This year he wants to do more.

Budd said he has a passion for attending events such the one in Rama. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just enjoy working with them,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to take in as many (working demonstrations) as we can.â&#x20AC;? However, he and his fellow participants also hope younger people will become interested and pick up the traces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think there are too many to take over and keep it going,â&#x20AC;? said Budd.

YORKTON, Sask. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A new education option is now available for those wanting to become agriculture pilots. Miccar Aerial Ltd. in Yorkton just completed its first run through a new training program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started an ag pilot course for people wanting to get into ag aviation,â&#x20AC;? said company head Michael Yaholnitsky. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We saw a need for aviation training specific to ag aviation.â&#x20AC;? He said two other courses are offered in Canada, including one in North Battleford, Sask., but his company thought there was room for another one, considering the shortage of agricultural pilots. Yaholnitsky said developing such a program seemed like a logical step for his company to take, given its experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We designed our own course,â&#x20AC;? he said. He said there are â&#x20AC;&#x153;no specific Transport Canada requirements,â&#x20AC;? to be an agricultural pilot, but industry specific training is nearly a must in terms of employment and insurance.

As a result, the training is â&#x20AC;&#x153;type specific and industry specific.â&#x20AC;? Yaholnitsky said the course covers safety, reading chemical labels, GPS study and in-airplane flight training. Being an ag pilot require additional skills, he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Flying the airplane is just a small part of it.â&#x20AC;? Three pilots recently completed the 40 hour course: one from Ontario, one from Quebec and one from Manitoba. Pier Daigle took the course and will continue to work for Miccar Aerial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been quite a few years that I wanted to try it,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding he has been intrigued to â&#x20AC;&#x153;fly and be involved in ag at the same time.â&#x20AC;? He achieved his commercial pilotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license three years ago, but then worked for a few years before undertaking the ag-specific training course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the 40 hours of training, you know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be doing,â&#x20AC;? said Daigle. He said it was beneficial to have instructors who are actively involved in the sector. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys training us know what they were talking about.â&#x20AC;?





Getting into greenhouses requires deft thinking Local markets | Producers face stiff competition BY REBECA KUROPATWA FREELANCE WRITER

The greenhouse industr y has expanded in recent years thanks to technological advances and the development of efficiencies in controlled environment management. However, the competition is fierce. Brian Hunt, a business development greenhouse specialist with Manitoba Agriculture, provides information on greenhouse production for the local market. He asks his clients about their goals and why they want to start a greenhouse operation, including basic structural and infrastructure decisions, construction, design, agronomy and maintenance. “A greenhouse manager in Manitoba needs a very sharp pencil to compete with domestic and offshore imports,” said Hunt. “The nature of the wholesale distribution and retail markets puts the onus on the producer to ensure there’s a sufficient margin to be economically viable and sustainable.” The recent consumer interest in buying locally produced food has helped producers who want to market their production close to home. “Even national and international

chains are aware consumers have a growing preference for locally produced products and are willing to purchase local production and market it in their stores as such,” said Hunt. “Consumers are becoming more aware of food safety risks and feel locally produced products are safer than imported ones.” The result is an increased marketplace presence for locally grown horticultural products. “Greenhouse production, particularly vegetables, is a perishable product,” said Hunt. “Production is planned and relatively stable throughout the year, so you must have customers purchasing your production on nearly a daily basis. Any glitch in that system will quickly result in income loss. For a constant level of production with excellent quality, the environment and all the conditions influencing growth must be monitored, adjusted as required and continually managed.” Hunt said the amount of investment will vary with the size and complexity of the operation. “A simple, double-walled poly Quonset style greenhouse, for structure alone, can cost from $7-$12 per sq. foot if you’re building it yourself from local materials, plus the costs of

The greenhouse industry in Manitoba is growing, but producers must carefully watch their costs and markets for their perishable products while competing against large distributors. | FILE PHOTO heat, ventilation, benches, and infrastructure,” he said. “If you contract a manufacturer to design, deliver and construct it, a modern, commercial-style greenhouse’s cost ranges from $15 to $20 per sq. foot, including header house and energy curtain. When you add in heat, ventilation, control systems and production infrastructure, it can go up to $25 to $35 per sq. foot.” Hunt said greenhouse producers need to know where to sell their production and for how much and then draft their business plans. “Nearly anything can be grown in a greenhouse, but the challenge is to sell what you grow,” he said. “Find out what consumers want, how to access those consumers at the lowest cost and grow what the market wants. In Manitoba, the four most popular greenhouse vegetable crops

are tomato, sweet bell pepper, cucumber, and lettuce. There are producers of niche market vegetables who are doing well with Asian vegetables to a specific clientele. Herbs are popular, but growers need a cost effective outlet in which to sell.” Hunt said the greenhouse trend will continue in Manitoba. “The majority of greenhouse operations in Manitoba are developing as an extension and expansion of an established market garden business,” he said. “This way, they hone their horticultural skills, develop a market, perhaps experiment with a high tunnel operation and then graduate to a greenhouse operation. The growth will be slow but steady.” Pat Wohlgemuth, owner and manager of Neva Hydroponic Farms near Landmark, Man., said greenhouse

operators need to ask themselves three important questions: • Which crop should and can be grown year round? • What is the market for the crop and how close is that market? • Is it beneficial to invest in facilities to grow the crop year round? She said it is feasible to produce crops year-round if the answer is yes to all three questions. Wohlgemuth said it’s not difficult to grow crops in a greenhouse in summer, but producers who want to grow year round should expect to double or even triple their investment in extra equipment to facilitate the need for a heating system, more efficient cooling and venting systems and artificial lighting. “The most important factor is market demand and that the crop is compatible to grow in a greenhouse,” she said.

“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.” Drift occurs when droplets are smaller than 200 microns. Standard sprayer nozzles drift because they produce droplets that are 50-300 micron in size with a large percentage under 200. With a droplet range of 200-550 microns, the Air Bubble Jet has 90% less drift than standard nozzles.



$ 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. 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. Air Bubble jet nozzles operate at 30-45 psi and have an overall range of 20-90 psi.They can be used to apply fungicides, insecticides and herbicides to any crop including potatoes and pulse crops. Ag Canada tested.

The AutoCopter is programmed to scout fields from a constant altitude of 100 feet. However, it can stop and drop to hover at 10 feet over suspected problem spots in the field, and georeference that spot. If the pilot remains perplexed by what he saw on the live video screen, the chopper can return to the same spot for further close-up photos and video. | AUTOCOPTER PHOTOS


Eyes in the skies better than feet in the field Field scouting | Real time data versus field scouting by autopsy BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

The science of crop scouting is reaching new heights, with remote control helicopters flying at altitudes from 10 feet to 100 feet. Although battery powered RC fixed wing planes are gradually gaining acceptance by crop consultants, these aircraft require speed to stay in the air. They can’t slow down or stop and hover to focus in on a trouble spot. RC airplane pilots openly joke that their landings are akin to controlled crashes, but the occasional damage to the costly digital devices and data loss is no laughing matter.


Gasoline powered RC helicopters, on the other hand, can fly slowly, and can stop, drop down and hover to allow the cameras a closer look at pinpoint spots in the field. They also land gently without damaging the machine or the electronic packages on board, according to Don Effren, president of the AutoCopter Corporation in North Carolina. Effren says the main advantage of his AutoCopter system over fixed wing RC aircraft or foot scouting is the ability to reliably download and process data within minutes of landing. “The immediacy of the information is invaluable. It’s like the difference between scouting by autopsy versus scouting by current real time information.” He says scouting according to last year’s yield maps is the autopsy method, while using images that are only minutes old enables growers to

make immediate decisions about applying crop protection products. “Our helicopter carries three fullsized cameras to capture multispectral data. We can process that data in the field within five minutes of landing the helicopter. The pilot quickly sees GeoTiff NDVI images of any part of the field.” The multi-spectral camera converts raw data into NDVI images within five minutes of landing. These files can be imported into farm management programs such as Ag Leader, SMS, SST and Apex. Effren says up to 500 images can be processed into a single file. The digital single lens reflex Nikon B5100 shoots four frames per second with a 16.2 megapixel capacity. All images are mosaicked and geo-referenced. The GoPro HD video provides a live video downlink so the pilot can see

what the helicopter is viewing as it flies. The camera captures video at 1080p and 30 frames per second, 960p at 48 and 720p at 60. Since introducing the AutoCopter concept two years ago, Effren has found it necessary to increase the flying time of the gas powered chopper to two full hours between fuel fills.

This met the needs of a Russian energy company using AutoCopters to inspect their pipelines. Effren says two-hour flight time is now standard on all units he sells for ag purposes. “The AutoCopter uses about a half gallon per hour. So if you’re field scouting, you can fly six hours with only two fuel stops. Realistically, that’s about all you want to do in a day anyway,” says Effren. Each two-hour flight is pre-programmed to cover certain fields in a specific pattern. Two hours is longer than required to fly a single field, so the flight plan can be designed to skip over non-target fields and proceed to the next target field. “Your flight pattern over each field can be saved and replicated over and over. The helicopter gives you more accurate replication of the flight pattern than a remote control airplane.” He says the precise control of the

P&H field trials test new varieties, new products Nine locations chosen | Data collected from trials to be integrated into CPT program BY BRIAN CROSS SASKATOON NEWSROOM

The AutoCopter carries three full-sized, geo-referenced DSLR Nikon B5100 cameras and yields 16.2 megapixel images in several formats, shown below in these photos of a strawberry field. Its GoPro HD video gives a live downlink during flight, shown above in this vineyard aerial image. Effren says his system provides the same service to broad acre farmers.

chopper allows users to go down to the same trouble spots each flight for close-up photos. Or operators can go back and take a second look at a particular spot. “That kind of pinpoint accuracy gives you information to write more accurate scripts for your VRT prescriptions.” Although AutoCopter can run autonomously, federal regulations in the U.S. and Canada require an on-site, withinsight human pilot. Effren says the new automatic takeoff and landing feature allows two hours of programmed flight with a safe landing. “But for safety and legal reasons, you need someone to monitor the flight and keep the helicopter in view. “If it’s programmed to hop from one field to another, the operator simply follows in the pickup. Although it can go down to 10 feet for close-up inspections, it normally flies at 100 feet, so it’s easy to see.” Effren says his system frees up the operator from many of the constraints farmers don’t like about RC fixed wing aircraft. The helicopter has no need for an outside vendor to handle the data, there are not time delays in retrieving data, and it can fly on cloudy days just minutes after rain stops. Effren says it takes about two hours to teach a novice to fly the AutoCopter and monitor what they see in the field. The helicopter can be fully automated, or the operator has the option of turning off the autopilot to steer it himself. Either way, the integral self-

preservation feature will not allow the machine to crash. A novice operator might be able to launch the AutoCopter and watch it perform over a field, but how can a novice know when to instruct the chopper to go down for a closer look at a problem spot? Compound that challenge by the fact that one day of programmed flight for AutoCopter day might cover four or five different types of crops. “You don’t need to be an agronomist to pick out trouble spots or areas of concern in the field. “I am not an agronomist or anything like that. But I can tell you from piloting this thing over a lot of fields, that you can see these areas of concern immediately. They jump out at you. “This multispectral imagery can pick up things in a field that are simply not visible to the naked human eye. “The imagery is like a traffic light. Green areas on the monitor are good to go. Yellow areas indicate some concern. Red tells you there’s a problem in that defined area.” Effren says he sells the AutoCopter as a complete package, which includes the AutoCopter, full training, all hardware, GPS enabled software, three cameras and video downlink for live images to ground control station. When AutoCopter was introduced two years ago, it carried an introductory list price of $75,000 US. Contact Don Effrens at 704-5628469 or visit

Parrish & Heimbecker will conduct field-scale variety and crop input trials at nine locations across Western Canada beginning this year. Seed and crop protection manager John Devos said the new trials, known as Field Intelligence Trials, will involve professional agronomists and farmer co-operators. The trials will test a variety of products, including new and existing cereal and oilseed varieties, pesticides and yield-enhancing products such as micronutrients, seed primers and seed inoculants. The trials are designed to provide unbiased production and performance data to farmers and assist P & H agronomists with their local sales programs. The trials will be conducted at Wilson Siding (Lethbridge) and Mossleigh in Alberta, Tisdale, Yorkton, Quill Lake and Watrous in Saskatchewan and Swan River, Glossop and Dutton in Manitoba. “Farmers look to us for reliable advice on cropping plans and product information,” Devos said. “If we can provide high quality, local information from these new field-scale trials, we help continue the P & H tradition as farmers’ partner in business.” Patrick Bartko, crop inputs manager at P & H Watrous, said managers at each of the nine locations helped design the trial programs in their areas. “They kind of left it open to each location as to what they thought they’d like to promote,” Bartko said. In Watrous, the trials will compare five top-selling Roundup Ready canola varieties: 94H04 from FP Genetics, 6060 RR from BrettYoung,

The trials are designed to provide unbiased production and performance data to farmers and assist P & H agronomists with their local sales programs. | FILE PHOTO 1990 from Canterra, 74-44 from Dekalb and 73-75 from Dekalb. Two experimental canola varieties will also be included in the Watrous program, as will trials of new and existing wheat varieties, including two hard red spring varieties that may be available through P & H next year. Bartko said each plot in the Watrous canola trials will cover four to five acres and each trial will be replicated twice. He said the trials will be conducted at no cost to producers. Seed companies whose varieties are represented in the trials donated seed to the programs. Equipment, labour and land for the trials were donated by farmer cooperators. Data collected from the trials will augment information that is gener-

ated through the Canola Performance Trials (CPT). Last year, the CPT program tested more than 20 canola varieties, including Clearfield, Liberty Link and Roundup Ready types, at more than 80 locations across the West. “I think it will supplement PCT,” Bartko said. “From my perspective, it’s data collected right in our own backyard. It’s fine to quote what’s happening … in some of these other places, but the local farmers put a little bit more stock into stuff that’s been done locally.” “It (the FIT program) is part of a larger attempt to recognize that P & H has some agronomically sound and strong people working for them and … to sort of increase our profile in the industry.”





Timing critical when deciding when to spray for flea beetles Spray or don’t spray? | Defoliation and leaf damage may look like disaster, but don’t trip over the threshold while trying to stay in the spray window BY RON LYSENG WINNIPEG BUREAU

Spending a toonie to prevent a loonie’s worth of damage doesn’t make sense. The same principle applies when deciding whether to spray flea beetles in young canola crops. The visual signs of leaf decimation can be enough to make even the most seasoned veteran canola grower call in the sprayer. Conventional wisdom says to start thinking spraying when 25 percent defoliation is visible. However, 25 percent defoliation when the beetles are going away is far different than 25 percent when defoliation is getting worse. Making that distinction is the difference between saving money or spending $5 per acre on chemical as well as application costs, says to Canola Council agronomist Greg Sekulic. “Defoliation in the range of 25 per-

cent is the level at which you should start regular scouting,” Sekulic said. “If you have 50 percent defoliation from flea beetles, the plants will easily recover with no loss of yield. We know that flea beetle damage always occurs when the plant is young and the cotyledon is capable of new tissue growth. Timing is the other factor. Spraying too soon, when numbers are still low, does nothing to protect the crop if a larger invasion occurs later.” Sekulic said a larger danger does loom below the leaves, even when leaf damage is less than 25 percent. Water and nutrients cannot travel up to the leaves if the beetles settle in on the stems and girdle them. “That’s a lot more serious than leaf damage,” he said. “It doesn’t take much effort by the beetle to girdle the stem and kill the young plant. If they’re on the stems, you should spray even if leaf damage is way below 25 percent.” Research shows that there can be plant losses without yield loss when


plant populations are in the recommended range of seven to 14 per sq. foot. “In fact, some of our modern varieties registered in the past five or six years can maintain their high yield when populations are well below seven per sq. foot. “We just don’t have the numbers yet to back that up. But judging by the reduced seeding rates we’re seeing lately with these new varieties, I’d say farmers have already figured out how low they can go with plant populations.” Most flea beetles on the Canadian Prairies are either the crucifier or striped species. It’s important to recognize the difference, and especially to know the differences in their life cycles. Crucifier beetles are all black, while striped beetles have two cream coloured stripes down their backs. They are the species that are increasing in some regions. Striped flea beetle adults emerge each spring, one to four weeks earlier than crucifier adults. Peak emergence of crucifier flea beetles occurs when soil temperatures reach 15 C. Striped flea beetles can be more tolerant of seed treatment insecticides. Flea beetles need to eat foliage from treated plants to take in the chemical, which is why some leaf feeding should be expected before beetle numbers diminish. Sekulic said farmers should consider five factors before spraying: Assess the level of damage


After nearly 40 years, two rotors are still better than one for best-in-class grain and straw quality and superior harvesting capacity. And now the New Holland Twin Rotor® legacy rolls on with the new CR Series combine. • More header choices • More rotor configurations • Greater grain tank capacity — up to 355 bushels • Faster unloading rate • More spreading options with Opti-Spread™ — ideal for no-till • Higher fuel efficiency — ECOBlue™ Tier 4 technology See the new CR combine today and profit from the Twin Rotor legacy.

The economic threshold is when canola plants have 50 percent leaf defoliation over a wide area. Check 20 plants at 10 sites throughout a field. Flea beetles move into a field from the edges, so check the middle of the field to get a true picture of how widespread they are. Sekulic defines economic threshold as “spraying within the window when the application cost matches the economic return from the spray operation.” He said entomologists have developed a 25 percent action threshold because a crop can go from 25 percent to 50 percent leaf defoliation in a short time under intense flea beetle feeding. Look under leaves and on stems

Leaves are the food of choice for flea beetles, but cool weather forces them down to feed on the stems, where they can do a lot of permanent damage in a hurry. This may require a quick decision. Count the plants A stand of seven plants per sq. foot can easily recover to give a normal yield. It’s time to spray if the count drops to four or five plants per sq. foot. Look at the newest leaves Spraying is probably not needed if the newest leaves are growing fast and have not been affected by the beetles. This is true even if the cotyledons have experienced heavy dam-

age. However, spraying may be needed if new leaves reach 25 percent defoliation and beetles continue to feed. Check the crop stage After the four-leaf stage, canola plants are established to the degree that they can outgrow flea beetle feeding without economic loss. If the crop is uneven, keep scouting until most of the plants have passed the four-leaf stage. “Look closely. If some plants are heavily damaged and others aren’t, check to see if the damaged plants are growing between the rows,” Sekulic said.

“If they’re volunteers, they won’t have seed treatment. Volunteers rarely provide a positive contribution to yield and are not worth protecting. “I strongly suggest that growers not jump the gun on spraying flea beetles. “Give the natural controls a chance to do their work. They have a natural life cycle. They’ll start to drop off on their own. The other factor is the seed treatment. High rate treatments are active for about five weeks after seeding. The insects only need a couple small bites of that and they die.” For more information, contact Greg Sekulic at 780-832-2382 or visit





Wild buckwheat, or polygonum convolvulus becomes a problem when later season rain interferes with post emergent spraying or arrives after spraying. In those years, the weed can make seed and interfere with crops and harvestability. Its wiry stems rise up through the crop seeking sunlight. Unless treated with glyphosate or another preharvest herbicide, it can make combining a chore for producers. Buckwheat is one of several weeds showing resistance to Group 2 chemicals on the Prairies. Resistance has been identified in Alberta, but there is a threat of increasing resistance across the western provinces because of the weed’s widespread presence and the extensive use of Group 2 products. Wild buckwheat is an annual and each plant can potentially produce as many a 12,000 seeds per year, although typically they produce only 1,000 seeds per plant. This provides plenty of opportunity for herbicide resistance selection. Most buckwheat seeds make a play for life within a year of creation, but research in the 1990s showed they can persist for several years. As a result, a single year of control might not be enough. The small, triangular seeds can per-

sist in farm-saved seed and require thorough grain cleaning to remove. The weed first trails along the soil’s surface and then branches at its base, expanding and creating its own canopy until other plants are encountered. The plant will grow up to one metre tall and has heart-shaped leaves up to 75 millimetres in length with a smooth surface and edge. Light green flowers appear without petals, but they have five conspicuous sepals. The plant has a large, fibrous root system that can chase water and nutrients down to 80 centimetres, which makes it crop competitive and drought tolerant. Wild buckwheat can reduce cereal yields by up to 12 percent at a population of five plants per sq. metre, while flax yields can be reduced by 10 to 20 percent at five to 15 plants per sq. metre. Although a mature buckwheat plant might produce 12,000 seeds in a season, only three percent typically germinates, according to research at Perdue University. Seeds will begin germinating in April and continue all season, depending on moisture conditions. Most will begin life in the top five cm of soil, but they have been known to successfully germinate as deep as 20 cm. Research at the University of Saskatchewan showed that wild buckwheat seed planted between April 15 and July 15 took an average of 17 days to emerge, 28 days to reach the first

and second true leaf, 31 days to get to third true leaf, 50 days to make its first vine and 61 days to flower. Most crops have an in-crop registered herbicide that will kill wild buckwheat early in the season or when it is small, but the weed is tolerant of MCPA and moderately tolerant to 2,4-D. Group 2 resistance in wild buckwheat means that multiple modes of action through tank mixes or combination products can be critical. Controlling buckwheat in broadleaf crops has been a challenge for producers. Chickpea, flax and sunflower growers can use a burn-off mix of glyphosate, carfentrazone and sulfentrazone to provide lasting control in those crops. Buckwheat control in its earliest stages can be done with glyphosate ahead of the crop and in herbicide tolerant crops. It can also be effectively managed with timely post emergent applications, which will allow crops to develop a canopy and reduce buckwheat growth. The weed is somewhat tolerant of glyphosate, which means full rate applications are required for anything other than the earliest stages. Pe rd u e re s e a rc h e r s s ay b ro moxynil, clopyralid, dicamba, glufosinate and sulfonylurea products are the most effective. Using these herbicides or mixtures with these ingredients will ensure the most effective wild buckwheat control. Clopyralid, dicamba and some sul-


12,000 3 percent SEEDS, BUT ONLY

WILL GERMINATE fonylurea herbicides may persist in higher pH soils and provide ongoing control beyond the first half of the growing season. Tillage is effective: pre-seeding discing or cultivation that causes germination followed by harrowing to kill the seedlings. Rotations that include several years of forage production will also provide control. As well, grazing will prevent the weed from reaching maturity and further seed production. Wild buckwheat is also known as black bindweed, climbing bindweed and corn bindweed. It can be confused with field bindweed until it flowers. Bindweed, another nasty weed, has white petals on its flowers and is a perennial.

The Agricultural Manufacturers of Canada (AMC)

Members Celebrating 25 years!

From its inception, PIMA/AMC has held an Annual Meeting, Convention and Trade Show. The 43rd annual event will be held on Tuesday, June 18th in the Queensbury Centre at Evraz Place, just prior to the opening of the Western Canada Farm Progress Show, a key partner and the trade show of choice for AMC. At the AMC 43rd Annual General Meeting, eight member companies will be recognized for their long standing commitment to AMC membership. AMC Board of Directors and staff send a sincere congratulations to our AMC members celebrating this 25 year milestone!

the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute (PAMI), established in 1974 as a three-prairie province agreement and funded by each province’s department of agriculture. PAMI’s mandate was to evaluate machinery and related technologies, as well as provide assistance to manufacturers in their product development. The end result was an extensive series of evaluation reports that were distributed through a subscription system. PAMI established a station in each of the prairie provinces, with each station developing technical areas of expertise divided along machinery function. Alberta’s station was located in Lethbridge, due to its extended test season, diversity of area crops and variety of soil, topography and climatic conditions; its area of expertise was seeding, tillage and spraying equipment. In 1988, when the Alberta station was incorporated into ARD, the direction and program scope were expanded to emphasize research and the application of technologies to complex agrifood systems and problems. These changes, together with the benefit of a closer relationship with ARD staff and programs, resulted in the steady and productive growth of the Centre as a first class research facility.$department/deptdocs. nsf/all/eng3096

For Excellence in Development and Production

Gen Manufacturing Limited GEN Manufacturing Limited is a developer, producer and marketer of agricultural steel castings. The company specializes in high chromium and carbide wear points which are extremely durable and abrasion resistant. GEN has developed and applied these products specifically in the agricultural sector to greatly reduce the rate of wear on tillage

tools as they go through the ground. Standard cultivation tools such as chisel spikes, cultivator shovels and seed drill shoes wear out very quickly under normal or dry soil conditions. By introducing the abrasion resistant products, GEN Manufacturing has solved a long-standing problem for the farming community in general. To solve the rapid wear problem, Henry J. Bergen CM, the Research and Development Manager of GEN Manufacturing applied his past experience in equipment development which was gained over sixteen years at the Agriculture Research Centre in Lethbridge, Alberta and many years in private business. The manager and his staff took upon the task of developing and testing extremely hard chrome alloys which could be applied to tillage tools. The result of this research program has seen the successful testing and production of many weld-on and pin-on high chromium and carbide wear points which increase the durability of ordinary tillage tools by many times. By increasing tool wearability, productivity in fieldwork is significantly enhanced through a decrease in down time for repairs and a decrease in tool replacement costs. Many years of on-farm testing have gone into the development of each product which has produced excellent results.

Saskatchewan Stock Growers marks 100th Handling ranchers’ concerns | A century later the association continues to lobby for the livestock industry BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Bonneau, Cruickshank, Grayson, Ogle, Olafson and Simpson. These six names might not resonate so much with cattlemen today, but they belong to six men who 100 years ago were pivotal in forming the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association. Treffle Bonneau of Willow Bunch, Robert Cruickshank, William H. Grayson, Olaf Olafson and John D. Simpson of Moose Jaw and William H. Ogle of Wood Mountain met in Moose Jaw in the fall of 1912 to talk about how to maintain their ranches and livelihoods in the face of increas-

ing numbers of homesteaders. They organized the first SSGA meeting, again in Moose Jaw, in 1913. Next week, cattlemen gather in that city to celebrate the 100th anniversary of their association. The Ogle and Olafson families are still actively ranching and representatives are expected to attend the convention. The theme of this year’s celebration, Riding for the Brand, honours the six founders. Their brands appear on the label for a special blend of Original Six whisky. Boyd Anderson, president from 1969 to 1971, detailed the history of the SSGA and its founders in his book Beyond the Range, written for the

75th anniversary. He chronicled the efforts of the first executives to establish the SSGA as a credible organization. They began with a letter to all the livestock men they knew from the Big Muddy to the Alberta border, Anderson wrote. Local meetings followed, and in the afternoon of July 23, 1913, more than 200 ranchers met in Moose Jaw to establish the SSGA. “When one considers the communication and transportation systems of the times, it must be looked upon as quite an achievement for so many to attend,” noted Anderson in his book. “For most it meant an absence from home for several days.” Within a year they had successfully

lobbied for 10-year terms on leases and assurances that their lease land would not be available to homesteaders. Murray McGillivray of Radville, president from 1980 to 1982, noted that lease rates were low but lease security was tenuous. “You could get parcels of land from the Macdonald government in the Northwest Territories for a cent an acre,” he said. Formal grazing leases had been established in 1885, before the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan were formed. But both before and after that date they were subject to legislative changes that created uncertainty. Ranchers needed terms that allowed

them to build their businesses. Anderson wrote: “In the formative years the main problems concerning the ranchers were related to lease lands, security of tenure, the threat of excessive taxation and local regulations. There was a recognition that a system of co-existence must be worked out with grain famers.” Over the years these and other issues came and went and, in some cases, came back again. In an interview, Anderson said the association really came through for producers when they needed it, particularly when dealing with trade issues and animal health concerns. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

Olaf Olafson, one of the six founders of the SSGA, immigrated from Iceland and started a ranch west of Moose Jaw. He served as SSGA president three times: 1915-16, 1923-24 and 1926. | FILE PHOTOS In turn, producers came through for an organization that struggled at times. “They’ve lasted 100 years because there’s always some dedicated stockmen along the way that when things started to go bad they’d give it a boost and before it would die out somebody else would pick up interest,” he said. Both he and Jack MacDougald, who was president from 1961-63, said one of the most contentious issues they recall was the idea of a marketing board for beef. Proposals came up in the 1930s, again in the 1950s, and again in the 1970s. Each time the stock growers successfully organized the opposition. MacDougald came on the scene during the marketing board discussion of 1954, and then during his presidency was part of the stock growers’ effort to help the hog producers defeat a marketing board proposal aimed at them. Assuming the presidency felt natu-

ral for him. His father James had been president in 1932-33. “We went to some of the meetings as kids,” he said. “I always had an attitude if I was a baker I would join the bakers’ association. But I don’t know whether everybody had that attitude. Our membership really did climb up when we had the debate over the marketing board.” Anderson said the debate in the early 1970s, when beef was included in a bill put forward by federal agriculture minister Eugene Whelan to be part of what is now the supplymanaged system, resulted in a highly

organized effort to defeat it. “We put up quite a fight,” he said. “That was a very crucial time. It would have been a controlled production and marketing system.” Don Perrin, who managed the stock growers from 1964 to 1981, remembered having a “few knockdown-drag-em-outs with government.” Cattle producers prefer their freedom, Anderson said, and the right to make individual decisions has characterized many of their policies even as they worked together to obtain them. “I think the control of it is going to remain (with producers),” Anderson said. From the tough times of the 1930s to disease issues mid-centur y, including the outbreak of foot-andmouth disease near Regina, BSE, and continuing trade issues such as mandatory country-of-origin labelling, the SSGA has relied on its members to show the industry the way.

we’d only produce meat for ourselves,” he said. “People would say, ‘I don’t care what you’re doing over there, I’ll just sell my meat in Saskatchewan’. “This is a big world out there. It’s such a challenging, interesting industry that it will never die.”


Hog producers fear barn conversion too costly Some may opt out | New code requires elimination of gestation stalls by 2024 FRANK NOVAK




Prairie pork producers are being encouraged to make their views known about the proposed code of practice for pigs. The code, officially released June 1, is open for comment until Aug. 3 and is expected to be finalized by year end. Alberta producers got a preview at a series of Alberta Pork meetings last week, with many expressing worry about some of the code’s contents. Among the most contentious were requirements for barn conversion to free housing, reduced use of sow gestation stalls and eventual elimination of stalls by 2024. “In my opinion, there isn’t enough

money in this industry for all of us to change our barns. It will be an easy decision for some of us. Just shut down,” said Picture Butte, Alta., pig producer Andy Vanessen, a regional director. Alberta Pork chair Frank Novak urged every producer to consider what it will mean to their operation and submit comments accordingly. He said information collected by his group and the Canadian Pork Council indicate costs of $500 per sow or more to convert barns to open housing. Space requirements also suggest herd reductions of 20 to 30 percent if barn size remains the same. “This is why we need, as part of this

process, for producers to go to their own farms … and figure out what it really means so that when you respond, you respond with an informed and intelligent answer.” Novak said some producers who have already converted to open housing may find they are still not in compliance with requirements proposed in the code. As well, putting sows accustomed to individual stalls into group housing will result in fighting and potential injury. Sask Pork general manager Neil Ketilson said dates for compliance to open housing will be the most contentious part of the code, although 15 to 20 percent of Saskatchewan producers already have open housing systems. Ketilson said he thinks producers can live with the space allowances noted in the code but they will expect assistance or compensation for making the conversion. Compensation was also a theme at Alberta Pork meetings. “If the value chain that is the con-

sumers, the retailers, everybody else wants us to do this, then maybe it’s time for them to step up with their wallets and say, ‘we think this is important and here’s how we’re going to help you do this’,” said Novak. Ard Bonthuis, who has a 700-sow operation near Taber, Alta., said financing options are limited for producers who must convert their barns. Banks put no value on barns so they cannot be used as equity for loans. “Barns might cost $3 million to build but if you can’t borrow money on it, it’s not worth anything.” Manitoba Pork Council chair Karl Kynoch said imposed deadlines for

barn conversion would be a major concern. In addition to cost, new systems require different management and producers don’t want to reduce animal welfare while changes are made. Kynoch also said the public has been misled by animal welfare groups to assume all hogs live in stalls and all pork comes from hogs that have been confined. “It’s not like this is going to be a drastic change for the animals because 98 percent are not in stalls already.” The draft code and the public comment system are available at www.





Proper drug use essential ANIMAL HEALTH



he goal of animal health programs is to maximize the health and productivity of our livestock. While veterinarians and livestock producers use management strategies and vaccination programs, pharmaceuticals are occasionally a necessary and important way to prevent and treat disease. All products licensed for food animals in Canada have a drug identification number and specific label instructions, which include dosage, route of administration and withdrawal times. The withdrawal times ensure that meat from animals that have been treated with pharmaceutical products is safe for human consumption. Producers who use animal health products need to closely follow label instructions to ensure they work correctly and that Canadian animal health and human safety standards are met. Veterinarians may occasionally need to recommend the use of pharmaceutical products in an “off-label” manner. This may be in a dosage that is higher than recommended on the label or the use of a product that is not approved for a particular species. Most veterinarians are careful about using products in an “extralabel” manner, but species such as sheep, goats, bison and elk may have little access to products that have label claims and approved dosages. In these situations, it is still important to establish appropriate withdrawal times to prevent drug residues in meat. Mistakes are occasionally made when administering pharmaceutical products, usually by accidentally giving the wrong dosage or product. As well, cattle are sometimes exposed to an environmental toxin that may pose a meat residue risk. Veterinarians must still provide producers in these situations with appropriate withdrawal times before slaughter to ensure food safety. The Canadian Global Food Animal R e s i d u e Av o i d a n c e D at a b a n k (CgFARAD) is an important resource available to Canadian veterinarians. The CgFARAD founding philosophy was that information about residue avoidance from all sources should be available from a scientific source. The concept was initiated in the United States in 1982, but in 1998, 11 countries, including Canada, joined

a multinational group to share data on food animal drugs and residue avoidance. This global database includes information on more than 1,200 drugs and chemicals and information from more than 9,000 scientific studies. The Canadian database is supported by two regional centres. • The Western College of Veterinary Medicine houses the western regional centre and is directed by Dr. Patricia Dowling. • The eastern regional centre is housed at the Ontario Veterinary College and is directed by Dr. Ron Johnson. Dowling and Johnson are specialists in veterinary clinical pharmacology and are faculty members at their respective institutions. CgFARAD personnel under the direction of Dowling and Johnson provide valuable assistance to veterinarians across Canada: • Veterinarians are able to contact CgFARAD when they need to prescribe drugs in an extra-label fashion. • CgFARAD personnel will use the global database to access the scientific information and provide veterinarians with scientific advice about appropriate withdrawal times. • CgFARAD can scientifically determine withdrawal times when animals are accidentally exposed to pesticides, heavy metals,and other chemicals. • They can assist feed mills and processors when accidental contamination of feed has the potential to create residues in food animals. CgFARAD is a valuable resource for veterinarians and an important component of ensuring food safety for the Canadian public. It deals with 1,700 to 1,800 requests for advice and recommendations each year and continues to anticipate growth over the next few years. The CgFARAD unit has often struggled for consistent and stable funding and has recently been supported by animal industry organizations, veterinary associations and pharmaceutical company funding. It would be ideal if extra-label drug use never occurred or was unnecessary in food animals. Producers of all food animal species should be careful to follow veterinary instructions when administering pharmaceutical products. However, it is reassuring that veterinarians have a place to turn to get scientific advice on how to ensure that residues do not occur in food products when extra label drug use is necessary or when mistakes occur in administration.

Animal rights groups hail proposed pig code as victory Big step forward | Humane society wants further changes to rules on sow stalls BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

Both animal rights and animal welfare representatives greeted the proposed new pig code for Canada as a victory for the concerns they have highlighted and campaigned about. But even if their main concerns are satisfied by the proposed changes, members of both wings of animal advocacy say they hope to bring further changes. “We see the code of practice as a huge step forward,” said Sayara Thurston of Humane Society International/Canada (HSIC), an animal rights group that has run aggressive campaigns against gestation stalls. Barbara Cartwright, chief executive officer of the Federation of Humane Societies of Canada (FHSC), also cheered the new code, which her organization helped to compose. “It’s certainly a big step forward for pig welfare in Canada,” said Cartwright. “We see it as a significant evolution in the right direction.” Outright activists like the HSIC were not on the National Farm Animal Care Committee that wrote the


proposed code. However, there was representation from other animal welfare organizations. The code process and development system was originally created after the nation’s humane societies and government agreed to create a voluntary system of industry, welfare organizations and others jointly developing husbandry codes that would protect the welfare of livestock on Canadian farms. The code development system is done confidentially, so committee discussions are not made public. Cartwright would not say which issues in the code were most contentious. But she said the greatest achievement for her organization might be the requirement for pain control to be provided for piglets undergoing castration or tail-docking. And she said the code’s emphasis on both requirements as well as recommendations was something her organization wanted to see, as opposed to the present code’s emphasis on recommendations with fewer requirements.

Cartwright and Thurston said they did not see the proposed code as an answer to all their concerns, nor an end to their advocacy for further restrictions on farmers in the future. “We also see that we need to be 100 percent stall free,” said Cartwright about the allowance for post-insemination sow stalls for a 28-35 day period. However, since this code addresses so much that FHSC raised, it supports the draft code and believes improvements can be made in the future. Thurston said her organization will use the comment period to lobby for changes to the post-insemination stall allowance, including asking for individual pens to be large enough for sows to turn around in, and to not be kept in the pens so long. “There’s no reason to keep them in there that long, or not to allow them to even turn them around,” said Thurston. However, in general both organizations, representing the two main strands of animal advocacy, greeted the draft code as a victory. Similar victories can be won in other livestock industries, who are also undergoing code updates, Cartwright said. “We’re thrilled that not just the pig code, but all the other species that are farmed in Canada are also, their codes are under revision, because in the last 20 years we have made leaps and bounds in our understanding of animal welfare science,” said Cartwright.

B.C. livestock group works to balance forests with forage Forage inventory needed | Ranchers say they play second fiddle to forest industry, pasture forage needs often overlooked by government BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

VERNON, B.C. — The competition for resources is a common theme on the diverse landscape of British Columbia. Ninety-four percent of the province is crown owned land, and ranchers depend on one-third of that for grazing. These days, they compete against wildlife as well as recreation, mining, forestry and urbanization. Ranchers sometimes feel they are playing second fiddle to the forest industry and that their need for forage is overlooked. Werner Stump, president of the North Okanagan Livestock Association, said the government has focused on managing forests and maintaining good inventories of what is available at the expense of other users such as agriculture. “We got really good at growing trees. We got them established quickly and they were established densely so it reduced the opportunity for forage,” he said during a forage presentation at the B.C. Cattlemen’s Association annual meeting in Vernon May 23-25. Stump’s association is working on pilot projects with foresters to rebuild ranges and ensure there is enough water in a balanced ecosystem. B.C. forest management was origi-

Today, the timber sector is tightly controlled and stable, but there is no planning for the amount or quality of forage growing under and around the trees or in

open areas that have been cut. Ranchers passed a motion calling for a detailed inventory of the provincial forage supply. “Until we get a database, we won’t be able to manage forage on a sustainable basis,” Stump said.

Ranchers also passed a resolution to create a stumpage appraisal cost allowance for all measures required for forage establishment, including site preparation and grass seeding. David Borth, range manager with the ministry of forests, lands and natu-

ral resources operations, said no inventory has been taken for 20 years, and that was probably not as comprehensive as it should have been. “If we had the resources, we could probably implement it,” he said in an interview. “We don’t really have a forage inventory for the province. I don’t know if you could say we ever had a comprehensive forage inventory. It is not comparable to what there is for timber.” The inventory would also need to categorize the plant species, their productivity and the types of range. Inspectors rely on historic use data when assessing range to determine animal unit months. “A lot of our decision making is based on what happened last year rather than a more objective, scientific assessment of what’s there,” Borth said. The inventory would also need to assess if there are adequate resources to share with fish and wildlife. Another problem has occurred since the mountain pine beetle carried a fungus that killed millions of trees in the central regions. It was thought that plenty of grazing areas would open up as the dead stands were removed. That has not occurred because the task was so large that many of the affected areas have been left alone to let nature take its course.


Whether you celebrate Syttende Mai or Canada Day, remember your roots and find humility COWBOY LOGIC



t’s a big day as I write this column. You know — it’s Syttende Mai. What-in-the-who, you say? Syttende Mai, the 17th of May, Constitution Day, is the national day of Norway celebrating the signing of its constitution in 1814 that declared it an independent country. OK, maybe it’s not that big a deal for all of my readers. However, I’m three-quarters Norwegian and my wife’s 100 percent, which, if I do the math correctly, means our children are seveneighths. Everything in me but the Taylor is Norwegian. Between my wife and I we could go back to Norway and still find relatives and places named Dokken, Oium, Larson, Kjorstad, Mogen, Wisness and Thordal. So we recognize Syttende Mai in our house, and, being open minded, global-thinking Scandinavians, we also have an appreciation for other people and other holidays: Cinco de Mayo for our friends to the south, Canada Day for our friends to the north and St. Patrick’s Day for our friends at the pub. The list goes on. Of course, celebrating our Fourth of July Independence Day goes without saying. Heritage is a special thing to embrace as a people. You can be

proud of your country, in our case America, and still have pride in your old country, in our case, Norway. Most times, anyway. The Taylors weren’t sure what homeland to place their pride in. The Taylors, I’ve learned from my genealogical aunt, came to America from England around 1640 or so. However, my father said he’d always been told we were Scotch Irish. I suppose Taylor could have passed for lowland Scottish, but it didn’t have a MacTaylor ring to it. Dad wasn’t the first one to fall for the Scotch Irish story. My genealogical aunt found out we’d perpetuated the myth since the Revolutionary War days. The Taylors fought in the Revolution and were for independence from England. They began claiming Scotch Irish ancestry at that time because they didn’t want to be English anymore. It stuck for a couple hundred years. Either way, I still like bagpipes and tartans. I suppose it’s our affinity for the underdog, the little guy, that made us want to be Scottish or Irish, or even Norwegian, for that matter. Norway was underdog to those heavy handed, oppressive Swedes. That sounds funny now, I know. And as colonial Americans — Scotch Irish, or whatever we were — we were underdogs to the imperial British. So we cheer for the underdog, we cheer for ourselves and we remember the romantic days of yore when we were fighting for independence and writing constitutions and declaring the best practices of underdog democracy. And, now, Norway is one of the

wealthiest countries in the world, thanks in great part to vast pools of oil and gas off its coast, and America has gone from colonial underdog to world superpower. In remembering where we come from, we hopefully stay a little humble. We remember a time before wealth and world status. In Norway, they remember when the people

wrote a constitution in 1814 that was considered radically democratic for its time. It’s still about people and it’s celebrated with parades of children in that spirit. The idea of governing yourself, not as a colony, but as a country, is a common theme around the world. So pick your holiday — Norwegian, American, Canadian, Mexican or

nearly any sovereign nation — and remember the struggles that got you to where you are today. In finding our roots, we find our humility. Ask any humble Norwegian: a little humbleness is a good thing. Ryan Taylor is a rancher, writer and senator in the state legislature from Towner, North Dakota.

Mixed global economic data kept markets on edge. The TSX slipped 0.2 percent on the week but was up 1.6 percent in May and up 1.7 percent for 2013. For the week, the Dow fell 1.2 percent, the S&P 500 lost 1.1 percent and the Nasdaq dipped 0.1 percent. U.S. markets have been on a tear with the S&P 500 rising 14.34 percent to the end of May.





New president takes over at Cargill With prairie grain farming booming and demand for food high around the world, changing leaders now at Canada’s Cargill subsidiary is a pleasant process, acknowledge its outgoing and incoming presidents. “It’s a good time to be handing it over to the next generation,” said outgoing Cargill Ltd. president Len Penner. But he and new president Jeff Vassart noted the vulnerability of farming, agriculture and the food products business to long cycles of low earnings and losses, to great volatility, and to constant consolidation and change. Vassart thinks evening out that cyclicality, volatility and uncertainty is a role that Cargill, which has focused on that function in recent years, can expand and develop to help build a sounder, surer Canadian agriculture industry. “We operate in very complex supply chains,” said Vassart, who returns to Canada after two years spent working within Cargill’s Australian operations. “There are a number of stakeholder groups and what has served us well as Cargill is understanding those diverse stakeholder groups and partnering with our customers to work through what are the opportunities in front of us and can we realize the full potential.” The Canadian arm of privately owned multinational Cargill has, over the decades, become a mainstay of Canada’s farming and agriculture sector. It is one of the country’s big three grain elevator companies, the owner of one of Canada’s biggest cattle slaughter plants and some of its largest canola crushing plants. For many years Canada’s grain and meat production industries were relatively dull, dusty parts of the economy. There was much consolidation in the sector, but not great profits or excitement. However, Cargill incrementally grew through the period, adding businesses and expanding operations. When the agriculture boom hit in

Jeff Vassart, left, is following previous president Len Penner as the head of Cargill Ltd.’s Canadian subsidiary. | ED WHITE PHOTO the mid-late 2000s, Cargill was primed to benefit from its myriad investments, and that led to even more investment. It is building a new canola crushing plant in Camrose, Alta., and expanding its refinery at the crushing plant in Clavet, Sask., as well as investing in numerous other operations. Penner said Cargill now has six times the capital investment in Canada that it did in 1990 — proof of its optimism about Canadian agriculture. “We vote with our wallets,” said Penner. One of the less capital-intensive parts of the Cargill empire is one of its brightest lights, Vassart and Penner said. Risk management and marketing advice has become a bigger part of Cargill’s attempt to help farmers and end users profit from interacting with the company and Vassart said he will try to develop that while he’s president. Penner said Cargill connects all the

parts of the food chain due to its position in the middle, but knows it needs to make customers on both ends see its role as positive to their businesses. If farmers and food processors see Cargill helping with their challenges, they will be happy partners. “Our future success is going to depend on helping our customers prosper,” said Penner. “What does the next turn of the flywheel look like for our customers? What can we bring to the table that can help them?” Cargill thinks it can help grain and livestock farmers manage volatility and improve returns. “We don’t think (volatility) is going away shortly,” said Penner. Vassart said his Australian grain industry experience will help him in Canada as the industry here transitions away from the Canadian Wheat Board’s monopoly. Australia broke its wheat monopoly a few years ago and the experience

has not been entirely smooth. What he’s seen since coming back suggests Canadian farmers, grain companies and food companies might do better because they have more experience with free market sales and they also seem to be collaborating better. “In the early days (in Australia) I’m not sure all of the stakeholders involved through the supply chain worked as one to try to overcome the challenges that faced them from an industry perspective as opposed to from an individual stakeholder point of view,” said Vassart. “They were in a different place when they went through deregulation.” Vassart thinks Cargill is well-positioned and will continue to expand. “The combination of people and customer focus to me are some of the things that I have enjoyed the most out of being part of the Cargill organization over the years,” said Vassart.

Regulatory environment and labour shortages will challenge agriculture, says Penner After being at the helm of Cargill Canada and spending much of his career in the grain industry, Len Penner said these issues are key to Canadian agriculture’s future: • Access to export markets “Going forward, our ability to position Canada as a trade partner of choice is going to be very important.”

Much of Canada’s food production is exported, so it needs access to global markets.” • Supportive regulations “Do we have a competitive regulatory environment and is it an aligned regulatory environment with some of our key trading partners?” Nothing can be allowed to jeopardize food safety, “that’s a non-nego-

tiable, but recognizing that there are ways to do that probably better than today.” • Human resource development, retention, recruitment “(Agriculture and food is) very dynamic … We’re in a business that people see is a long-term area to invest in.” Employers like Cargill, which has

almost 8,000 workers at its 18 business lines, also need access to immigrants, who often work at its facilities like the High River slaughter plant. • Labour shortages are common and immigration is one source of new workers “Canada has had a pretty progressive immigration policy that has

benefitted us, us being the industry but also Cargill. (We) need to see that continue as well. It’s important.” • Transparency Farmers and others in agriculture need to expect more public scrutiny and to offer access. “As Cargill we’ve taken the stand that we don’t have anything to hide. This is what it looks like.”





New strategy is sometimes better than grinding it out THE BOTTOM LINE



armers are famous for their ability to tough out bad times, but Francis Allard knows the benefits of being open to change. Allard grew up on a vegetable farm near Saint-Roch de l’Achigan, 40 kilometres north of Montréal. He didn’t want to follow in the footsteps of his father, Mario, but he also wasn’t keen on being stuck behind a desk, either. So after earning a degree in mechanical engineering, he started looking for alternatives and discovered willows. “I wanted to try something new,” says the 31-year-old. “At the time, biomass was very promising. There was a lot of talk about second generation biofuels, and oil prices were rising very rapidly, so it looked like a very good opportunity.” Allard and his friend, Olivier Payette, launched Agro Énergie in 2006 by seeding 50,000 20-centimetrelong willow cuttings in neat rows on 10 acres of his father’s farm. Those little sticks grew like mad: in just three years, they were five metres high, with each acre yielding 10 to 15 tonnes of willow to be dried and chipped into a renewable green heating fuel. But before that first harvest, the world changed. “Each year we expanded our acreage,” says Allard. “But then in 2008, there was the big crash, both in the economy and in energy prices.” Then came fracking, which sent production of natural gas soaring and prices plunging. Natural gas is the heating fuel of choice for greenhouses and industrial buildings, which is the market they were targeting. “We’re still doing projects with biomass and its potential is still very good,” he says. “But with natural gas prices so low, it’s difficult to get a quick payback with biomass right now.” At that point, it would have been tempting to grind it out and re-double their efforts to convince potential customers that willow biomass was their best long-term choice. But then a new opportunity — or rather, a partial one — came along. To their credit, Allard and Payette were smart enough to recognize it and nimble enough to seize it. Allard got a

call from a company selling a new type of noise barrier. It wanted willows for the outer covering of a fence containing sound-absorbing mineral fibres called rockwool. “I was not so excited about just supplying the raw materials,” says Allard. “But because I have a mechanical engineering degree with a specialization in industrial engineering, I thought maybe we could do the whole thing and have a value-added product.” So in March 2009, Allard visited the Danish company PileByg, which has 20 years experience building willowclad noise-abatement barriers, a more visually appealing alternative to those concrete walls you see along busy highways in urban areas. The young Québecois was warmly received and negotiated a deal to become PileByg’s North American distributor. Les Écrans Verts was born and began selling and building noise barriers as well as living willow fences, a green alternative to regular fences. The company’s name in English is Green Barrier. It was a great opportunity, but it also meant putting biomass on the back burner for a while. “We were basically starting a new company,” he says. “The product was very different, the market was different and now we were dealing with city planners, landscape companies and architects. It was a very different world.” This time, their timing was perfect. Noise pollution is a growing issue: people are less tolerant of it and less willing to accept barriers that look like “prison walls,” Allard notes. So business is (quietly) booming for Les Écrans Verts. It now has 10 employees during the construction season, is expanding into southern Ontario and plans to enter the eastern United States within a few years. Biomass has a bright future, but Allard says he couldn’t let his belief in it blind him to other opportunities. “An entrepreneur has to be flexible,” he says. “The vision you start with can completely change five years later. This is life. Maybe in five years, we’ll be someplace else.” T h e r e c e n t g o o d t i m e s h av e prompted many farmers to retool their businesses, whether by aggressively expanding, adopting a highcost, big-yield production style or entering new areas such as custom work or direct marketing local food. As long as it works, great. But if the economic landscape suddenly changes, toughing it out could be the wrong choice. The right one? Being open to new possibilities.

The thrust of the deal between Shuanghui International and Smithfield Foods is to send U.S. pork to China rather than a strategy to import Chinese pork into the U.S. | FILE PHOTO BUSINESS | CORPORATE TAKEOVERS

China’s Shuanghui to buy Smithfield Foods for $4.7 billion Deal raises concerns | Chinese company promises no closures of U.S. operations H O N G KO N G / N E W YO R K (Reuters) — Shuanghui Internat i o na l o f C h i na p la n s t o bu y Smithfield Foods Inc. for $4.7 billion in cash to help satisfy growing demand for U.S.-made pork in its home market. However, the deal may raise concerns in the United States. The agreement, announced May 29, comes after Smithfield’s largest shareholder agitated for change at the world’s largest pork producer, including a call to break up the company. Smithfield said the deal is subject to review by the U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment (CFIUS), a government panel that reviews transactions that would bring U.S. businesses under foreign control. The transaction would be the largest Chinese takeover of a U.S. company, with an enterprise value of $7.1 billion, which includes the assumption of debt. The biggest Chinese cross-border deal was CNOOC Ltd.’s 2012 acquisition of Canada’s Nexen Ltd., with an enterprise value of about $17.7 bill i o n , a c c o rd i n g t o T h o m s o n Reuters data. Relations between the U.S. and China over cross-border deals have become testy recently. The issue may arise this week when U.S. president Barack Obama meets with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, in California to talk about cyber security. Partly to mitigate concern over the deal, Shuanghui has promised no

closures or relocations of Smithfield’s operations and to keep current management, including chief executive officer Larry Pope. The thrust of the deal is to send the U.S. pork to China, a consideration that one person familiar with the matter said would help during Shuanghui’s CFIUS review, which may focus on the potential for rising Asian imports into the U.S. The deal is “not a strategy to import Chinese pork into the U.S.,” Pope said. “This is a strategy to export pork out of the U.S.” He said the company had been attempting to strike a deal with Shuanghui since 2009. “The Asian market is huge opportunity for us as a company,” Pope said. “We just haven’t been able to put something together until today.” China, including Hong Kong, is the third-largest market for U.S. pork behind Mexico and Japan. Last year, it imported 431,000 tonnes worth $866 million from the U.S., according to U.S. government data. Shuanghui International is the majority shareholder of Henan Shuanghui Investment & Development Co., China’s largest meat processor and its largest publicly traded meat products company as measured by market capitalization. Demand for U.S. meat in China has risen 10-fold over the past decade, fuelled recently by a series

of embarrassing food safety scandals, from rat meat passed off as pork to thousands of pig carcasses floating in a river. Smithfield has been working to stop using the feed additive ractopamine, which has been banned in China and Russia, in an effort to enhance its appeal as an exporter. Shuanghui offered $34 a share for Smithfield, a 31 percent premium to its closing stock price May 28. The Chinese company will assume $2.4 billion of Smithfield’s debt. Smithfield is one of only three of the 68 food companies covered by StarMine that trades at less than its book value. Its price is 0.9 of book value, compared with a peer average of 2.6. Privately owned Shuanghui will finance the transaction through a combination of cash, rollover of existing Smithfield debt and debt financing produced by Morgan Stanley and a syndicate of banks. The boards of both companies have approved the deal. Continental Grain Co., which with a 5.8 percent stake is Smithfield’s largest shareholder, has been pushing for change at the company. Last month it sent a letter urging management to break Smithfield into three independent enterprises. Continental said in an April presentation that Smithfield should use the proceeds from the split to buy back shares, restructure its business and pay a dividend in line with what its peers pay.
