FARM SHOW

The members of the Colusa Farm Show Committee, who give of their time and expertise in planning this important benefit to our agricultural community, are proud to welcome you to the 48th annual Colusa Farm Show, the longest running Farm Show in California. When their predecessors, those men back in 1965, gave birth to the concept of an “Orchard Show,” little could they have imagined the magnitude and scope of today’s Exhibition with more than 300 exhibitors and daily seminars. Their vision, and their willingness to push the envelope has given us the gift of a place to enhance our knowledge about the newest ag equipment, exposure to the cutting edge best practices for growing, and an opportunity to visit with old friends. The committee and the Fair Board is very appreciative of its Major Corporate sponsors, Rabobank, the Official Bank of the Farm Show, Colusa Casino Resort which underwrites its exhibitor gift bags and hats, and the contribution of Ag Source, our Official Equipment Publication, which sponsors our newly refurbished Exhibitor Lounge. We cannot forget those who help fill the Gift Bags with the wonderful products of Colusa County: California Family Foods, ADM Rice, Colusa Milling, Blue Diamond Growers Bell Carter Foods, Sunsweet Growers, Morningstar, Lindberg Rice, Chico Nut, Strain Ranches, Olive Oil and Fastenal. On behalf of the entire Committee, thank you for coming, take advantage of our informative seminars, and enjoy yourself! Don’t forget to mark your calendar for the 49th version of the Colusa Farm Show, February 4 – 6, 2014. See you at the Show,

Dave Zwald, Chairman

ty to create a California agriculture license plate a reality! We have collected 8,355 plate orders – meeting DMV’s threshold of 7,500 applications to establish a California Special Interest License Plate. The California Agriculture License Plate will support future generations of farmers and ranchers through agricultural education, career awareness, career training and youth leadership programs. Proceeds generated through plate renewal fees will be awarded to agricultural education groups to support youth education and enrichment. It is anticipated that the first funding for educational programs will become available in July 2013. The CDFA is still working with the Department of Motor Vehicles

(DMV) to incorporate the license plate into official order forms and online registration – these should become available before the end of this year. Updates will be posted to the CalAgPlate facebook and twitter accounts. If you would like to join the agriculture community and order a license plate today, applications are being accepted and processed through the DMV. Simply complete the order form, print “CAL AG PLATE” at the top of the document, and follow payment and mailing instructions. The Cal Agriculture License Plate is a great achievement for the agricultural community. Special thanks to all those individuals who made this initiative a success.

Rock picking made easy The ROBO Rotary Rock Picker is the world’s first Rotary Rock Picker for skid loader use. Now Farmers and Landscapers can pick

rocks with ease, picking rock 2 to 3 times faster than rock buckets. ROBO will fit on any skid loader with a quick attach plate. This

������������������� ��������������������� ������������������ ������������

design is modeled after the rotary combine and we all know how the rotary combine revolutionized the farming industry. Simply scoop, spin, and the rock is picked clean. Made of heavy duty steel and engineered with patented technology, ROBO will last the average farmer a life time. Farmers can now pick rocks with ease, picking tough rocks that are barely visible, simply scoop spin and the rock is picked clean. ROBO is versatile and can be used by landscapers with freshly cleared lots, picking tree stumps, pieces of wood, rocks, tin cans, hub caps and any other debris in its way. Junkyards and recycle yards can use ROBO to clean debris keeping sites clean. Until now, picking rocks was either back-breaking work that no one

wants, or using a pull-style picker that requires almost perfect conditions to work right. The ROBO Rock Picker, which can pick up rocks up to 36” in diameter and up to 2,000 pounds at a time, is not affected by items such as mud, corn stubble, or trash conditions. It is available in three different models. ROBO can turn your land mines into gold mines - landscapers will pay top dollar for clean field stones.

New natural gas storage facility helps expand supply infrastructure PRINCETON, California - Central Valley Gas Storage celebrated the opening of California’s newest natural gas storage facility on Oct. 3, 2012. Steve Cittadine, president of Central Valley Gas Storage, commented that the project had received a tremendous amount of support from the community and that they appreciated everyone who helped make it a reality. “This new facility plays an important role in expanding the existing natural gas supply infrastructure and increasing the total amount of natural gas storage capacity in northern California,” he said. Central Valley Gas Storage is a subsidiary of AGL Resources (NYSE: GAS,) a publicly traded corporation with extensive natural gas storage and distribution operations. Located in a rural agricultural area near the unincorporated town of Princeton in Colusa County, it sits on a 10-acre site that has historic and ongoing gas storage and delivery operations. The facility began offering firm and interruptible services to wholesale natural gas shippers in April and is now fully operational. “Colusa County strives to protect its agricultural heritage while encouraging economic development,” said Denise Carter, Colusa County supervisor. “This project does just that. It will provide the county new, significant, ongoing revenue and new jobs while maintaining our prime farmland. Central Valley Gas Storage has become an active member, employer and contributor of our County. We look forward to continuing our relationship.” Central Valley Gas Storage obtained certification from the California Public Utilities Commission in 2010 to convert the depleted Princeton Gas Field into a high-deliverability, multi-cycle storage field. The facility, which

is interconnected with the gas transmission system of Pacific Gas and Electric, now provides up to 11 billion cubic feet (bcf) of working gas capacity with a maximum withdrawal and injection capability of up to 300 million standard cubic feet per day.

CCRCD: A Partner in Local Conservation and Agriculture

T

he Colusa County Resource Conservation District (CCRCD) is involved in a number of local projects, assisting landowners with natural resource concerns and promoting Colusa County’s vast agricultural bounty. The CCRCD recently released the Colusa Basin Watershed Management Plan. This document is the result of a 2 1/2 year effort, working with landowners, agencies, local government and others to develop a truly local and stakeholder-driven Plan for the watershed, an area that spans over 1 million acres in Colusa, Glenn and Yolo Counties. The Colusa Basin Watershed Management Plan is a non-regulatory roadmap to watershed health that addresses local concerns as identified by watershed stakeholders. It is meant to be a user-friendly, living document and contains a clear set of management goals, objectives and achievable actions that will sustain and enhance our landscape into the future. The plan can be downloaded at http://www.colusarcd.org/nodes/projects/WatershedManagementPlan.htm The CCRCD is also working locally to bridge the gap between agricultural producers and consumers through a project called Colusa County Grown. The project is being funded by a USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program grant. The purpose of this grant program is to increase direct-to-consumer sales of agricultural products.

Colusa County Grown promotes Colusa County agricultural products using two strategies: a marketing campaign for locally grown products and producers, and a consumer education campaign that highlights the benefits of shopping locally and eating seasonally. The focus is on producers who sell directly to the consumer through outlets such as farmers markets, farm stands, agritourism, community supported agriculture (CSA,) and Internet sales. Producers that participate in the program receive free marketing support including: printed marketing materials, advertising for their businesses in local publications, and listings on the new Colusa County Grown website. The CCRCD will also be facilitating a marketing workshop in early 2013 that will provide strategies for producers to help them market their farms and farm products. For more information, visit www.colusacountygrown.org Other projects that the CCRCD is involved with include: fuels reduction in our forested areas to prevent catastrophic wildfires, invasive weed management, community outreach and education, youth education, and Integrated Regional Water Management Planning (IRWMP.) For more information about the Colusa County Resource Conservation District, log onto www.colusarcd.org, or give us a call at 530.458.2931.

Working together

for an abundant future.

FWA Hosts Screening: The Fight for Water Family Water Alliance will be hosting a special presentation of the film The Fight for Water: A Farm Workers Struggle. Set during the California Water Crisis in 2009, The Fight for Water shows the human impacts environmental decision had on a community when the farm water was shut-off. One California Central Valley filmmaker, who happened to reside in the impacted part of the valley, set out to film this impact and document a historic water march that took farm-

ers and farm workers, along with a coalition of supporters (lead by Hollywood comedian turned water activist, Paul Rodriguez), across the heart of the California Central Valley--on a four-day, 50-mile walk--to demand that their water supply be turned back on, because to them and their families, water is not only their means of survival, it is a chance of a better future... and for the very future of California. Malcolm Media, Keep California Farming and Vision Magazine said, “This is an urgent movie to watch!”, “This an important film to see!” and “This is compelling!” It is an emotional film, with emotions running deep from the very people who were hurting the most. Patrick Cavanaugh of AgNet West Radio stated, “You would never think this could happen in America today!” Juan Carlos Oseguera, a Modesto Junior College graduate and San Francisco State film alumni, is the filmmaker behind the compelling historical film. The showing will be held at the Colusa Theater on February 6 at 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are free.

Growing Mushrooms & Growing Jobs Formerly a limited partnership, Premier Mushrooms is now incorporated. Premier Mushrooms, Inc. is one of the fastest growing ag-related companies in Colusa County, and it is one of the county’s largest private sector employers. In 2013 it will become an even larger employer. The mushroom growing operation located in Colusa’s Industrial Park is adding 16 growing rooms as part of its expansion. The expansion will create an

additional 40 jobs and support 200 full-time employees. Ever mindful of the environment, the company has also added a Chiller that will significantly reduce energy usage on the farm. “Sustainable agriculture will be a major focus for Premier in 2013 as we are continuously seeking to improve our ‘Green’ initiatives,” commented Premier CEO John Ashbaugh. “Premier Mushrooms, Inc. is dedicated to building long-lasting relation-

ships with its employees, customer base and community. We are honored to receive continuous support and look forward to the New Year.” Premier Mushrooms also strives to be a part of the community by becoming involved with sponsorships of many of the county’s groups, organiza-

tions and events. Most recently, it sponsored the annual Colusa Farmers Market Mushroom Sale grant program. Grant funds generated by the sale of donated Premier mushrooms at the Market, were distributed to several Colusa County nonprofit groups in January.

Benefits of being a farm bureau member ~ By Jonnalee Henderson ~ Whether you are a teacher or business owner, farm bureau membership is for anyone who enjoys the rural way of life. As a Colusa County Farm Bureau member do you remember all the benefits that come with your membership? Locally, we want to inform others in our county about the issues that farm bureau works-on and the benefits that come with membership. The Voice of Advocacy: Past Colusa County Farm Bureau (CCFB) President Bill Wallace said it well, “Many of us would not be farming today if it weren’t for farm bureau.” Farm Bureau lawyers, lobbyists and staff work daily in Sacramento and Washington, D.C. on behalf of agriculture so that

our voice is heard. They fight for us, inform us and engage us. Knowledge is Power: California Farm Bureau staff work directly with Colusa County members to communicate about important issues that affect our county. In addition, agricultural members receive weekly ag news that is specific to California issues in the weekly award-winning newspaper Ag Alert and Associate members receive the bi-monthly award-winning California Bountiful magazine.

Ag Source helps provide renovations Ag Source Magazine, a longtime exhibitor of the farm show is providing sponsorship that is enabling the 44th District Agricultural Association – the sponsors of the Colusa County Fair and the Colusa Farm Show - to enhance the Exhibitor’s Lounge/Youth Building. “We are very fortunate to have Ag Source as one of our sponsors,” Clark said. “Their contribution has enabled the fair to enhance the Exhibitor’s Lounge with new paint.” Earlier this year fair staff began working on the building by painting both the inside and the outside of it. Aside from the new paint, circular tables will be placed inside the building to further enhance the indoor appeal of the facility. The Exhibitor’s Lounge is a courtesy that is made available to farm show vendors/exhibitors. Each morning vendors/exhibitors can visit the Exhibitor’s Lounge and receive coffee and pastries. Ag Source is sponsoring the Exhibitor’s Lounge this year. The Exhibitor’s Lounge will also be the location of the Colusa Rotary Club’s luncheon that will be held on Wednesday, February 6, during the farm show.

Risk Management Seminar

Addresses New Producers, Women and Hispanic Farmers An educational workshop for local Hispanic, women, and new agricultural producers will be hosted by AgriLogic Consulting, LLC in coordination with the USDA Risk Management Agency on February 5, 2013 at the annual Colusa Farm Show. The 45-minute presentation will cover decision support tools, specialty crop insurance, enterprise budget development, financial planning, record keeping, identification of risk bearing ability and tolerance, and Food Safety and Good Agricultural Practices program development (USDA-GAP). The workshop is open to all types of agricultural producers with a special emphasis on Hispanic, women and beginning producers, as well as industry

representatives and students pursuing a career in agriculture. The target group was chosen because Hispanic, women, and new producer demographics are underserved with respect to risk management education material available to agricultural producers. This demographic has been neglected due in part to factors such as language barriers, agricultural labor force participation, and historical emphases on other demographics. The objective of this project is to educate the underserved Hispanic, women, and new producers in these states so they may better understand the varieties of risk faced by their operations, are able to assess their indi-

Foundation to Support the Fairgrounds and the Fair The Directors of the Colusa County Fair have announced the formation of the Colusa County Fair Foundation, an idea that has been in the works for several months. While still in the beginning stages, the goals of the new organization are to support the longterm viability of this valuable community asset, the Colusa County Fair, both as an event and the Fairgrounds as an event venue available for the many activities enjoyed by both private families and public organizations. As an entity owned and governed by the state of California, the District Agricultural Fairs have been cut off from all State Funding as part of Governor Brown’s budget cuts in 2012. The Colusa County Fair Board believes that in these difficult economic times, this fund-raising partner of the Fair will be able to generate income from a variety of sources that are not necessarily open to the Fair with its government agency status. “The ability to receive grants, hold ‘non-profit’ fundraisers, and accept significant donations is paramount to our continued success” noted Board President, Terry Bressler. Bressler was the impetus behind the move to establish this nonprofit arm of the Fair, an entity which will be able to assure that major donations for the Fair’s programs and facility improvements will be secure and used for the charitable purpose for which they

are so generously given. It is hoped that members of the community that benefit from the Fair and the Fairgrounds will add the Colusa County Fair Foundation to their list of charitable causes. More information will be available through the fair office.

Entertainment venue continues sponsorship

Colusa Casino Resort is joining-in with a host of other businesses and continuing its support for the 44th District Agricultural Association (DAA) by once again sponsoring the commodity bags which are distributed at the Colusa Farm Show. The commodity bags are given to farm show exhibitors and are filled with goods that are grown in the county. This year, nearly 300 commodity bags will be given out. Colusa Casino Resort has been a sponsor of the commodity bag program for the past several years. Originally, Colusa Casino Resort opened as Colusa Bingo in 1986 as a 1,200 seat highstakes bingo hall. The first 80 slot machines were introduced in 1992. In 2004, it undertook its largest expansion project to date. Expansion included the addition of a hotel, additional casino floor space to accommodate more slot machines, table games, and increased restaurant space which is home to a 24 hour restaurant, Jack’s Lounge and Grille, and the Wintun Dinnerhouse. As with many gaming tribes, Colusa Casino Resort has been a proven profit center for the Colusa Indian Community Council. With Casino seed money, the Colusa Indian Community Council has embarked on various endeavors in an effort to ensure the tribe’s future growth and financial prosperity. Some of those efforts include: The Colusa Indian Health Center, Wellness Center,

and Hand-in-Hand daycare facility - all of which are open to the public. Its portfolio also includes the purchase and development of agricultural lands, as this is an integral part of its diversification plan. Incorporated into some of these lands is the tribe’s hunt club – Outdoor Adventures -which provides big game, waterfowl and sport fishing trips throughout the year and as an exclusive guide service of Colusa Casino Resort. Guests enjoy superb accommodations at discounted rates and first-class dining at a variety of food venues within the casino. Colusa Casino Resort offers a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for visitors to try their luck at large jackpots. It offers more than 1,200 of the newest slot machines including the exclusive mobile gaming device, action-packed table and poker games, and high stakes bingo to choose from. Then newly renovated River Valley Lodge features 55 spacious rooms with amenities, including flat screen TV’s, free Wi-Fi and fireplaces located in all suites. It also provides a smoke-free and pet-free environment for all guests. Pulling inspiration from the wild, with its unrefined and rich wood textures, the hotel encompasses a rustic interior design. With a Southwestern and Native American feel, the woven accent blankets found on the beds in the guest rooms pull the whole motif together. When guests want to take a

break from gambling, they now have the pleasure of relaxing in the new hotel lounge. With an antler chandelier hanging from the ceiling and a petrified wood mantle that hangs above the large fireplace, guests can unwind from the stress and speed of today’s world and curl up in this warm and cozy atmosphere. The large windowpanes in the lounge provide a view of the well landscaped courtyard, designed for guests to enjoy the outdoors with the sounds of the stream and outdoor patio areas. The Wintun Dinnerhouse serves up mouth-watering meals in a casual, family-friendly, yet elegant atmosphere. There are plenty of palate-pleasing entrees and appetizers including juicy steaks to specialty desserts and a vast wine and liquor selection. It’s the perfect venue for that special occasion or group gathering. For the more casual dinner, the Season’s Buffet serves an ever-

changing selection of delicious entrees as well as rotisserie, pizza oven dishes, a wok station for more made-to-order stir-fry, plus homemade soup, salad and dessert selections. Jack’s Lounge and Grille offers a relaxing atmosphere where patrons can enjoy a refreshing beverage, listen to music and have a light snack or tasty meal from its full menu. There are also bar top video poker machines available as well as big screen TVs to watch a game. For more information on Colusa Casino and on activities taking place there call (530) 4588844. Other commodity bag sponsors include: ADM Rice, California Family Foods, Blue Diamond Growers, Colusa Milling, Strain Ranches, Tuff Stuff Jerky, Sunsweet Growers, Bell Carter Foods, Lundberg Rice, Colusa County Cattlewomen and Fastenal.

Are you proactive with your SAFETY PROGRAM, or are you reactive? Your safety program should be of the highest priority for your business. ON SITE SAFETY SERIVCES, INC. for more than 15 years has been committed to helping growers and other agricultural related businesses in and around the Northern Sacramento Valley, provide their employees with the necessary safety training to help provide a safe and healthy workplace. A written Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) and other associated written programs such as Heat Safety, Hazard Communication, Confined Spaces, Respiratory Protection and others are the basis for any safety program. Should you be subject to an OSHA inspection, these documents will be the first item on their inspection agenda. Are you conducting regular and frequent safety meetings? Are you documenting the meetings? Have inspections been completed and documented? Did you take action on your inspection results? Is the disciplinary action requirement adhered to? If it’s in your written program you’ll want to do it. Please come by our booth in the Main Exhibit Hall, getting it done is easier than you may think!

Davis Machine Shops Celebrates a Century of Serving Farmers and Ranchers MERIDIAN, Calif. - Davis Machine Shop is proud to be celebrating 100 years of service to the agricultural community. What started as a locallyowned and operated blacksmith shop, founded by the current owner’s great grandfather in 1913, has become a thriving machine shop providing custom manufacturing, repair, and pump/irrigation services to the agricultural and industrial industries. The business was started as a blacksmith shop in 1913 by M.S. “RED” Davis in Meridian, California. Red Davis repaired farm equipment and shoed horses for agricultural purposes. In 1945 Red’s son, C.M. Davis, took over his father’s business. Davis continued to grow the blacksmith business and added machining tools to his shop. He also added pump and irrigation work to his business services. In 1963, Marshall Davis came into the business with his father, forming CM Davis and Son. The pair operated the business until Marshall Davis purchased the business outright from his father in 1968. Marshall

continued and expanded his fabrication, machine shop, and

pump/irrigation services. In 1976 he opened Meridian Supply, an agricultural hardware store that was located in Meridian. Marshall owned and operated the business from 1968 to 1997 and then sold the businesses to his two sons, Clifton Davis and Thomas Davis. The brothers incorporated Davis Machine Shop in 1999 and in September 2004, they relocated the business to its current location at 15805 Central Street in Meridian. In 2005, they purchased Poly Riser and Pipe in Willows, California, and then four years later purchased Pumpmaster Portable Pumps, Inc., in 2009. Davis Machine Shop is diversified in many facets of agriculture. They offer custom manufacturing, and repair Ag/ industrial related products, as well as pump and irrigation

s e r v i c e s , agricultural and domestic well drilling, and crane service. Davis Machine also carries a full-line of steel and drainage products to

serve their customer’s needs. “Our goal is to better serve our customers through quality and service,” said co-owner Thomas Davis. Clifton and Thomas Davis would also like to thank the generations of customers who

have supported the family business for the past 100 years. For more information about Davis Machine Shop, Poly Riser, Pumpmaster or Meridian Supply, turn to pages 2 and 3 of this Colusa Farm Show program.
