or more than 50 years, ranchers and rodeo fans alike have been gathering in the Rapid City civic center every winter for South Dakota’s Black

Hills Stock Show and Rodeo.

“The stock show was built on the showing of good cattle and it originated in Rapid City,” said Ron Jeffries, general manager of the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo. “We show 10 breeds of cattle and it has really

It’s your neighbors, friends and cousins competing at doing what they do best...

“We have a really good horse line-up this year and cow prices have been holding steady,” said Jeffries. “(Cow prices) are better than they were last year and we had good moisture so there was good hay in the area.” Jeffries said that the first Black Hills Stock Show was in 1959. The show has now grown to have on average between 260,000 and 300,000 people come to watch and thousands of people compete.

Winning cattle of the 2010 and 2009 Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo. The BHSS runs Jan. 22-Feb 6. For a complete schedule, visit www.blackhillsstockshow.com.

“For cattlemen, it is before calving and a good time to buy bulls for the spring; and for nonranch families Rapid City is an excellent host community and has wonderful hotels and restaurants,” he said. “People have been attending for many many years and it’s a great chance to gather family and friends.” Two new events at the Black Hills Stock Show this year are the kick-off Great American Cattle Drive from the fair grounds to the civic center and the Jim Thompson Cowboy Poetry Show in the civic center. The Country Cowboys Band, formerly the Kyle Evan’s Band, will play at the Jim Thompson Cowboy Poetry Show. A ranch rodeo to test the skills of local ranchers will be occurring during the week of the stock show as well. See BHSS • page 7

“A ranch rodeo is a competition with more of your activities like you would do in normal ranch daily life,” said Jeffries. “It’s your neighbors, friends and cousins competing at doing what they do best but doing it at a faster speed. …You have to be able to cowboy up to compete in that deal.”

Other highlights during the week of the stock show include a buffalo sale, a sheep shearing competition, and a barnyard petting zoo. “I think my favorite part (of the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo) is the people …they’re just great,” said Jef-

“All of my family have rodeoed,” Sutton said. “Steve (Sutton) has picked up five times at the National Finals and rodeoed through high school and college and both his boys and daughter rodeoed through high school and college.”

Sutton said if he had to pick some of the favorite horses he raised, it would be “Yellow Jacket” and “Big Bud.”

A good bucking horse isn’t a hit-and-miss deal.

Bucking horses often are distinctly known by their unique names, and Sutton said they name their horses through a variety of ways. Sometimes they are named after sponsors, who the owner was, where they came from or names that people on their ranch came up with.

“One of our horse’s name is Chuckalator and he got his name a different way than most of our horses,” said Sutton. “One of the boys working for us (named Chuck) spent Christmas vacation riding bucking horses at the ranch, and he got on this colt three or four times and he bucked him off every time. So his name was Chuckalator.” The family-run business continues to thrive and Sutton said the reason for that is “because it’s in their blood.” He joked that the business has been around “forever.” Sutton Rodeo has been bringing horses to the National Finals Rodeo since the 1950s. Sutton said he enjoys it because all of the people in the industry are there and more than 18,000 people attend. “It’s like the World Series or the Super Bowl of rodeo,” he said. “Rodeo is a way of life.” James H. Sutton was the first stock contractor to be inducted in the


Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Hall of Champions in Colorado Springs, Colo., in 1982. “I think most people in rodeo will tell you that one of the best

An itemized list of any equipment sold or taken out of service in 2010. 8. Anything else your tax preparer’s list requests.

Q A

: What should producers look for when selecting a tax preparer?

: First off, if a producer is not currently working with a professional tax preparer, I strongly suggest they do. Tax laws and regulations change each year; as do federal tax credits. It’s your job to make your farming or ranching operation profitable. It’s the professionals’ job to keep up with all the changes and updates and be aware of provisions you can take advantage of, resulting in paying fewer taxes. With that said, when selecting a professional tax preparer, make sure they have credentials. The Internal Revenue Service recently implemented new regulations quantifying who can prepare taxes for a fee. In order to be licensed to prepare taxes for others for a fee, these individuals will need to pass a certification test. Next, find a professional who understands you, your operation and has a business temperament similar to you. Remember, you’ll be working closely with this individual. To avoid frustration, I suggest if you’re a more conservative businessman, then look for a more conservative tax preparer. If you’re more of a risk taker, look for a more aggressive tax preparer. Q: What’s new for the 2010 tax season that producers should be aware of? A: Like I mentioned earlier, tax laws are constantly

changing and evolving, so the best way to stay informed, is to work with a professional tax preparer. A few things that have changed for 2010 that producers should ask their tax preparer about include the following; 1. A recent change to limits for Section 179 Expensing. This change allows producers to write off the purchase of new equipment completely the first year – without putting it on a depreciation schedule. 2. Bonus depreciation was extended to include new equipment purchased in 2010. 3. In the past, all Conservation Reserve Program payments were subject to self employment tax. Now, if an individual is collecting retirement income or Social Security, their CRP payment is no longer subject to Self-employment tax, but is still subject to regular federal income tax. 4. Looking forward Congress recently implemented some changes that will impact estate taxes, beginning in 2011. The new estate exemption amount is $5 million and the tax rate for estates larger than $5 million will be 35 percent.

Q A

: No one wants to pay in more than they need to. Do you have some strategies or suggestions on how agriculture producers can pay less? : Most of my suggestions are items that agriculture producers should bring up when they meet with their professional tax preparer to discuss if the strategy is something that will work for them and their specific operation. Here are a few tips I often share with producers: Ask about Alternative Minimum Tax: Depending on the size of the operation, some farmers are impacted by the alternative minimum tax schedule which was See Taxes • Page 28

Hunts earn ‘Stockmen of the Year’

W

hen Jim and Joni Hunt were awarded the title of Stockmen of the Year,

their first reaction was pure surprise, as there are so many other ranchers that they admire. The 2011 Stockmen of the Year award is given out at the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo and the winner is selected by the stock show selection committee. A banquet will be held in their honor during the upcoming show. “We were shocked when we were chosen and extremely honored,” said Joni Hunt. “All of our lives we have been in the business, and we both came from ranching families.”

The couple raises purebred Angus cattle and registered Quarter Horses. They usually have around 500 head of mother cows on their ranch in Faith, Hunt said. The Hunts were married in 1987 and have lived at their current ranch since 1990. “We both spent some time away from the ranch before we moved here,” she said. “We both have college degrees and worked in other fields for a while.” Jim earned an agriculture business degree from South Dakota State University and Joni earned a bachelor’s

degree in nursing from the University of Virginia. Jim worked for a short time in ag banking and rodeoed in the SDRA, PRCA, and NRCA. Joni worked as a pediatric nurse for four years before the pair moved to their current ranch. “We returned to the ranch because we wanted to raise our children the way we were raised …on the ranch,” Hunt said. The couple are the proud parents of seven children, ranging in age from 7 to 23 years old. “They (the children) are all two years apart except for our youngest,” Hunt said. “…they all participated in rodeo and helped with the ranch and have been involved in high school sports.”

Jim and Joni Hunt, of Faith, were awarded the 2011 Stockmen of the Year award. The Hunts will receive their award at the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo.

Future Farmer DeJong receives National FFA office

E

ach year the National FFA Organization selects six college-age members from across the nation to represent and serve its more than 500,000 members. This year, Kennebec, S.D., rancher, Wyatt DeJong was selected to serve as the 20102011 National FFA Central Region Vice President. An agriculture education major at South Dakota State University, DeJong is only the fourth South Dakotan selected for the honor since the organization began in 1928. “It’s a phenomenal feeling to realize that for an entire year I can give my entire self to serving FFA members and advocating for agriculture,” says DeJong who, in the next

year, will travel more than 100,000 miles; meet with top leaders in business, government and education; visit approximately 40 states; and participate in an international experience tour to Japan. As a national FFA officer, his responsibilities will include providing personal growth and leadership training for students, setting policies that shape the future of the organization and promoting agricultural literacy. Formerly known as Future Farmers of America, the National FFA Organization was founded in 1928 to provide leadership skills and agriculture education to farm boys. Today, only 27 percent of FFA members come from a

because we lived 28 miles from Winner. We were always involved in activities like piano lessons, 4-H, and church, so we had plenty of social interaction. I’m really glad that my mom and dad made that decision. Being home schooled really developed in me self discipline. We worked on our assignments at our own pace. We had to hold ourselves accountable. I’m a guy who likes being busy and craves responsibility and tasks. I’m very much a deadline driven guy and I attribute that to my homeschooling experience. The character skills I developed homeschooling have served me well in many areas of my life — training show cattle, juggling activities and homework at college, training for a half marathon, and preparing for national FFA office. Because being homeschooled allowed me to be more involved in what was going on at the ranch, it was something I really missed when I started high school. I

prepare. I spent a lot of time visiting with former South Dakota Secretary of Agriculture Bill Even and many other agriculture experts. On top of my class schedule, I spent about 30 hours a week preparing. Q: You ran for a National FFA Office in 2009 and didn’t receive one. How did that impact you this year? A: I’m very goal driven, so of course it was a huge let down after all that preparation not to receive an office. I didn’t know exactly where the Lord was taking me at the time, but I realized that the information and knowledge that I’d gain preparing for the office was invaluable. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It helped that I could jump right back into the college routine. I’ve met my best friends here at SDSU and they’ve been a great support through everything.

Wheat surges on higher exports, supply concerns

W

heat prices are surging after export sales skyrocketed.

The U.S. Agriculture Department said Friday that export sales of wheat totaled 1.05 million metric tons last week. It’s the highest level since August, when Russia banned wheat exports after a drought devastated much of its crop. The increase in export sales is causing speculation that more buyers will be interested in U.S. wheat because of uncertainty about the effect that floods may have on Australia’s wheat crop. The flooding crisis has cost Australia at least $2.5 billion in lost exports from the farming and mining industries. Farm produce, including fruit, vegetables, cotton and sorghum, will be cut by at least $500 million in the fiscal year ending June 30, according to the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences. Railroads used to transport wheat and other products may be out of service for up to three months, PFGBest analyst Tim Hannagan said. Australia is one of the world’s biggest exporters of wheat. Its crop had been expected to fill some global needs but now inventories appear to be tighter, analysts have said. Wheat for March delivery rose 21 cents, or 2.6 percent, to settle at $8.245 a

bushel. March corn added 3.25 cents to settle at $6.5725 a bushel while soybeans slipped 2 cents to $14.1225 a bushel. In other trading, metals used primarily for manufacturing settled higher after the Ifo Institute said German business confidence has risen to a two-decade high. In contracts for March delivery, copper gained 3.7 cents to settle at $4.309 a pound and palladium settled up 90 cents at $816.75 an ounce. April platinum rose $3.70 to settle at $1,822.30 an ounce.

ISSUE AT A GLANCE HARVESTING EXPORTS: Wheat prices surged after the U.S. Agriculture Department said export sales skyrocketed last week. The news is causing speculation that more buyers will be interested in U.S. wheat because of uncertainty over Australia’s crop, which has been damaged by floods. METALS EXPECTATIONS: Copper, platinum and palladium rose after a new survey showed German business confidence has rose to a two-decade high. Gold and silver fell. OIL SLIP: Crude oil prices settled lower. Traders expect China to take more measures to control the growth of its economy, which would dampen its demand for oil and other commodities.

February gold fell $5.50 to settle at $1,341 an ounce and March silver lost 4.6 cents to $27.427 an ounce. Crude oil prices fell again as traders speculated about whether China may impose more restrictions to moderate the rapid growth in its economy Benchmark oil for March delivery fell 48 cents to settle at $89.11 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. In other Nymex trading in February contracts, heating oil rose 2.76 cents at $2.6508 a gallon and gasoline added 3.64 cents to $2.4589 a gallon. Natural gas for March gained 5.1 cents to settle at $4.743 per 1,000 cubic feet.

the farm, and from my dad and other beef producers, but it led me to want more information,” Maria Skoglund said. “What it gave me was great perspective on how packers, feeders, producers, and others are truly all on the same team. That’s something that can be overlooked when we all get so busy focusing on our specific roles in the beef industry.” Both Maria and Dave Skoglund said working with producers who employ a wide range of production approaches – natural beef, organic, grass-fed, traditional – also helped them realize the need for unity in an industry that can have passionate advocates of one system over another. “Regardless of breed or the approach to raising them, we need to stick together and learn from one another,” Maria Skoglund said. “Consumers don’t have to eat beef. They might not know the various parts of the industry. But when beef producers, packers, and others in this field work together, it helps everyone.” Extension Beef Specialist Cody Wright is among the instructors of the Beef 2020 course, and he said the program helps producers and workers in the industry learn the lessons they need to strengthen the value of their product.

Perhaps above all the lessons he learned, Dave Skoglund said the non-biased information the training gave him, and its overarching “pasture to plate” approach, made a big difference. It is why he’d recommend it to others. “In this business, it’s all about learning, learning every day,” Skoglund said. “You never know when you’ll get that one piece of information that makes a huge difference in your operation.”

lowest levels ever recorded, at just 5 percent of the total corn used, said Hart, the Iowa State specialist.

“It’s just confirming that supplies are lower than we thought, and demand is better than we thought, and when that happens you see prices bidding up,” said Chad Hart, an Iowa State University grain marketing specialist.

The report shows that just 745 million bushels of corn will be stockpiled by August this year. That’s down from about 1 billion bushels in August 2010.

It can take months for higher grain prices to work their way to the grocery store. Raw ingredients are just a fraction of the cost for processed foods. But companies like Hormel Foods Corp. have already announced price increases of more than 3 percent this year. Higher grain costs will put more pressure on them to pass costs along to consumers. U.S. corn production dropped 5 percent in 2010 to 12.4 billion bushels. Still, it remained the third-highest output on record. The record was set in 2009, when 13.2 billion bushels of corn were harvested. At issue is the amount of grain being carried over from year to year. That surplus creates a buffer for global markets. The report shows that corn stockpiles are among the

“That’s a significant drop,” Hart said. “Normally, we like to keep those levels above 10 percent.” Anthony Prillaman, an analyst with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, said weather was the key factor in the lower production. “Everything shows that normal or above normal temperatures in August reduced the yield potential for corn,” he said. “They were above normal and stressed the crop.” Hart said demand continues to rise, with the ethanol industry the area of fastest growth. The largest overall demand continues to come from the livestock industry. Lower stockpiles are also evident with soybeans, wheat and cotton, Hart said. “Things were already really thin with soybeans and have been for

the past three years,” Hart said. Soybean stock supplies are at 4 percent, down from 5 percent the previous year. Soybean production fell just 1 percent in 2010 to 3.33 billion bushels, with average yields of 43.5 bushels per acre. Travis Thorson, a soybean analyst with the USDA, said that was down from about 3.4 billion bushels and 44 bushels per acre in 2009 and was

Cotton was a bright spot. Cotton production jumped 50 percent in 2010, in part because the number of acres harvested rose 42 percent, said Steve Maliszewski, a USDA analyst. “Last year we had a lot of abandonment in Texas, about 1.5 million acres, because of severe drought in 2009,” Maliszewski said.

the second-highest output on record behind 2009’s. He said fewer soybean acres were planted in the Southern U.S. as farmers rotated crops.

Wheat production fell 1 percent to 2.21 billion bushels in 2010 but saw record yields of 46.4 bushels per acre. Grain sorghum fell 10 percent to 345 million bushels last year.

Farmers meeting focuses on world economy

A

t National Farmers Convention 2011 in Kansas City, Mo., on Jan. 18, a slate of speakers spoke about agriculture, its future and how producers can extract more money from the marketplace for the food they produce. Richard Ellinghuysen, vice president of the Pork Division for Producers Livestock in Omaha, Neb., and a USDA and United States Trade Representative Ag Technical Adviser, said based on a United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization Report in 2009, the world will have to double its food production by 2050. “Higher demand for food will push up prices, and that creates enormous opportunities for food producers,” said Ellinghuysen. He said there is no guarantee of profit. “But, you can capitalize by controlling productive assets, like land, livestock, capital, technology and labor while using risk management pricing on both inputs and outputs,” he said. Later that afternoon, National Farmers Vice President Ron Mattos, of Hanford, Calif., said bargaining is the answer for agriculture. Producers can enjoy better leverage with buyers at the negotiating table when they join their production with others’ to secure better

prices and contract terms. “The National Farmers marketing programs are second to none,” Mattos said. “We’ve spent more than five decades representing producers in the marketplace, and we put that knowledge to work in sophisticated marketing programs,” Mattos said. National Farmers Organization offers producers pricing and risk management programs in dairy, grain and livestock. “I was at a Connecting Young Farmers Conference here at convention this morning, and I listened to a story from a young producer who markets together with his neighbors to leverage better prices for each one of them,” Mattos said. Bargaining works. Producers selling their production together in large volumes works, he said. National Farmers President Paul Olson, of Taylor, Wis., acknowledged that despite rising commodity prices, there are still some challenging farm times in rural America. Echoing the theme of rising input costs concerns, Olson said control of resources may be one of the biggest risks

Take advantage of tax incentives: Ask your tax preparer about recent incentives Congress has implemented. For example, one recent incentive, the Qualified Production Activities Income Credit, is available to any business that produces something. Since farmers and ranchers produce crops and livestock, they are eligible for this tax credit. Another tax credit, the Making Work Pay Credit is based on earned income and could result in farm couples receiving up to $800 credit. Income averaging: Due to good yields and markets this year, 2010 may be a good year for many agriculture producers to take advantage of income averaging. Income averaging allows producers to take this year’s extra income and apply it to the lower tax rates they received when they were in a lower tax bracket the last few years. Keep good records: It comes as no surprise, considering the current state of our Federal deficit, that the IRS has been charged with looking for more money. Business owners like

you are being targeted. The IRS will be looking for anything that stands out to trigger an audit, for example, higher than usual expenses. Whether you are audited or not, I suggest keeping good documentation of what you purchase, what it is used for and where it will be used on the farm. The example I share is typically a farmer may make a stop at their local farm supply store and purchase $1,000 worth of supplies. In the past, a simple receipt would often suffice and the expense would be considered as a deduction. Today, that simple receipt may not suffice. The IRS wants thorough documentation and complete records proving that what was purchased was indeed used in the operation. I’ve heard that the IRS is known for sending auditors into the field who have no knowledge of the business of agriculture, but are very skilled in interrogation. My response to this claim is this - if you and your operation gets audited, give your tax preparer power of attorney so they can be your go-between. Your professional tax preparer can take the questions, visit with you and ensure that the responses are accurate and well thought out in order to save you money. Pay yourself: Agriculture producers can increase their deductions by paying their spouse and children for working on the farm or ranch.


Instead of taking money from your profits to buy your kids school clothes, why not pay your children, use that as a deduction and they can buy their own school clothes? The same applies to your spouse. Keep accounts separate from the farm account. It’s important to make sure wages paid to spouses or children are under their control in their own accounts. The IRS may disallow wages paid if it appears they are simply redeposited back into the farm account and used for farm expenses. Give commodities to charity: Depending on your tax bracket, producers can save as much as 25 to 40 percent of the value of the commodity in taxes by gifting commodities, like grain, instead of counting it as profit. When you deliver your grain, put the name of the designated charity — say the 4-H Foundation — on the grain storage ticket. Again, consult with your tax preparer to make sure you follow all of the regulations when doing this to make sure the transaction is handled correctly. Do you have a farm credit card? Ordinary credit card fees and interest is not a deductible business expense unless the card is in the business name and used solely for business purposes. You may save money by opening a charge account strictly for the farm and use it only for farm expenses. Then, any annual fees and interest payments may become deductible expenses. Do you have an off farm job? Nor-

mally, expenses such as mileage for driving to work are not a deductible expense. However, mileage for driving from one job to another is. Therefore, since farming is your main job, if you have a job off of the farm, you may be able to deduct mileage for travelling to your second job and back. Check with your tax preparer for clarification. Consider forming a corporation: Although many agriculture producers have been a sole proprietor for many generations, entering your operation into a sub-chapter s corporation has many long term, tax saving benefits. In many cases farm families can save thousands of dollars in taxes. Talk to your professional tax preparer to see if forming an S corporation is a good choice for you. If you’re worried about losing control of your assets, I recently heard an expert suggest that producers keep the land in their name and rent it to the corporation. Another concern that I often hear regarding moving to a corporation deals with Social Security. Some producers are concerned if they are not paying in as much self-employment tax, they won’t receive as much social security. This may be very true for tax payers near retirement. However, for younger tax payers, my response is who do you trust more? The government to pay you back in Social Security many years from now, or yourself to invest the money

Q. What can I do to reduce stress during the 2011 tax season? A. Plan ahead, keep good records throughout the year, and meet with your tax preparer in the fall of 2011 to do an end of year tax estimate. When you have a good understanding of where you’re at financially and what your projected taxes might be, you can make important decisions throughout the season instead of panicking and making rash decisions that may not be the best for your finances’ long term health. This gives you time to take advantage of one of many options that I suggested earlier, or your tax preparer can work with you to develop a different strategy that will help you pay less in taxes.
