Farmers say trade more important than new farm bill By Michelle Rook AgweekTV Anchor

WASHINGTON — While debate continues on the 2018 farm bill in Washington, a majority of farm groups say trade is a bigger issue for them than passage of the new farm legislation. Trade was front and center last week as a team of top U.S. officials, including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, traveled to China to negotiate a deal to delay tariffs between the two countries and avert a trade war. However, negotiators left with very little to show in the way of progress. Gregg Doud, chief ag negotiator with the U.S. Trade Representative’s Office, says Pres. Donald Trump’s tariff schedule is warranted, especially with China, due to their unfair trading practices and trade imbalance with the U.S. “We import $500 billion worth Doggett of stuff from China. We export $150 billion worth of stuff into China,” Doud says. He says U.S. agriculture is at the tip of the spear regarding the $53 billion of initial and retaliatory tariffs between the two countries. “When you add the $3 billion in that involves fruits and nuts and Perdue pork, on the top of the $50 billion on their list … now 82 percent of U.S. agricultural exports to China are involved in this trade situation,” he says. Yet, Doud says the administration believes they will achieve a favorable trade outcome for agriculture. The comment period ended April 23 on the trade dispute and tariff schedule the U.S. has imposed on China. As part of those comments, many farm groups

asked the president to drop the tariffs to prevent an all-out trade war. “What we want to see is incentive to get partners across the table from each other,” says Tom Sleight, U.S. Grains Council CEO. “Let’s negotiate this out; let’s not get into a full-blown war.”

Jon Doggett, executive vice president of the National Corn Growers Association, says they’re concerned about the long-term loss of market share with the trade uncertainty. “The unsettledness is creating problems with our customers,” Doggett says. “Our customers are starting to ask the question — Is the U.S. a reliable supplier?” U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue has been assuring farmers that the president has their back. “Any farmer knows there’s market risk,” he says. “There’s enough market risk out there with weather and just general trade markets and different things like that. We don’t want them to be the victims of trade dispute market disruptions in that way.” At the same time, Perdue is preparing a trade compensation program, the full details of which are not being disclosed. However, farmers say they want trade, not aid. “It’s really anybody’s guess what trade compensation might look like,” says Zach Clark, director of government

relations for the National Farmers Union. “It certainly will not replace getting a good price from the marketplace, which is ultimately what we want to see.” Lawmakers are also asking the president to move swiftly to avoid additional tariffs like those imposed on ethanol, pork and now sorghum. “There are things people are having to cope with right now because of the uncertainty and the turmoil while this negotiation is going on,” says House Ag Committee Chair Michael Conaway. He says his message to the president has been to move as quickly as possible on his trade scheme. At the same time farmers and farm groups have been watching the ongoing North American Free Trade Agreement renegotiation and hoping negotiators would do no harm to agriculture. However, the unknowns regarding NAFTA have led to the U.S. losing business with Canada and Mexico. “I hope we get it done in May. We need to get it done in May. The Mexican customers are getting real nervous,” Doggett says. The caveat is the toughest issues have not been dealt with, including Canada’s Class 7 milk pricing. Michael Hawkins, ag counselor at the Embassy of Canada says the issue is a non-starter for them. “We don’t think we’re making any significant impact there, and again, it’s a policy of supply management that we’re going to be continuing to defend,” Hawkins says. “It’s not likely that Canada’s going to make any concessions on its pricing until we get into the ninth inning and the last-minute deals need to be cut,” says Chris Galen, senior vice president for the National Milk Producers Federation. So, they are cautiously optimistic about getting resolution on the issue and getting an overall NAFTA deal done. Go to to watch more from AgweekTV on this story. AG

ND man who neglected horses gets probation By Sydney Mook

Forum News Service

DICKINSON, N.D. — A Dickinson man whose horses were recently seized by Stark County because of animal neglect will not be allowed to own livestock while he is on probation for the next two years. As part of a plea agreement, Dennis Armbrust pleaded guilty to three counts of animal neglect, a

2 Monday, May 14, 2018 / AGWEEK

Class A misdemeanor, on May 3. Two counts of animal cruelty, both Class A misdemeanors, were dismissed. In March, a Stark County sheriff’s deputy described seeing several horses that he believed were thin and had little access to water. Nearly 40 horses were seized from Armbrust. The Stark County Sheriff’s Office will take ownership of the animals.

Armbrust will be placed on supervised probation for two years. According to the court document, he will also “be responsible for all costs incurred from the seizure of his animals, along with any veterinary bills incurred, or other costs incurred by the county.” Armbrust will also not be allowed to own livestock while on probation, the court document said.

County approves 3 CAFOs southwest of Mitchell, SD MITCHELL, S.D. — Neighbors spoke against three hog feeding operations that were later approved by the Davison County Commission on May 8. Five opponents raised concerns over smell, water consumption, harm to property values and even harm to tourism. “How many do we have to get up here before homes start losing valuation?” said Jerry Smith. “There has to be some tipping point. It’s going to come sooner rather than later.” The three concentrated animal feeding operations, CAFOs, will be built about 10 miles southwest of Mitchell. Each will house up to 2,400 swine or 960 animal units. Their approximate locations are at the intersections of 401st Avenue and 260th Street in Lisbon Township, 400th Avenue and 263rd Street, and 399th Avenue and 262nd Street. Jeff Miller controls the land and will work in partnership with Chris DeRocher on behalf of Sunterra Farms. Miller will receive manure from the operation to use as fertilizer in lieu of rent.

“It’s a good business model,” complained opponent Jerry Smith, “but it’s not conducive to community living.” Construction of the barn could begin in July and will require six to eight weeks. Manure will be injected into the ground to reduce odor. Using manure on site will eliminate the need for trucking it. “They don’t own the hogs,” noted opponent Dale Smith. “All they get is the manure, and 95 percent of the revenue from hogs goes to Iowa. We get what’s left: the smell and manure.” While Davison County will benefit from increased tax income, he said, “The township gets about $16.” Opponent Anne Smith wondered if local contractors would benefit or whether all of the money spent on projects would go to Iowa. Opponent Arden Lemke said his wife hails from an area of Germany where feeding operations are so crowded people cannot open windows. “We have tourism here and we’re going to ruin it,” Lemke said. “For a few dollars — what this is making — you’re going to take millions away.”

Opponent Dale Smith raised concerns about the 4,000 gallons of water used daily at each operation. “Are there more of these in the plan?” he asked commissioners. DeRocher said he had no current plans for additional operations. Jeff Bathke, Davison County Planning and Zoning administrator, said no additional applications were pending. On the issue of water usage, Mark Jenniges, deputy planning administrator, said the state requires a water permit for the use of 28,000 gallons daily and the CAFOs raise no concerns for the watershed. Commission Chairwoman Brenda Bode said that while she wished the project benefited the local economy more, “We have no right to say someone can’t come in and do this. We are not allowed to make that kind of a decision.” Commissioner Dennis Kiner said he would like to revisit the issue of water use. “I am concerned down the road about the aquifers,” Kiner said. “They can draw down, and at some point we’re going to be tapped.”

He noted the commission had little leeway on the three projects. “I understand we can’t refuse anything that fits the criteria of the ordinance,” Kiner said. Bode said she believed the use of CAFOs would be self-limiting if their objective truly was the manure. “You have to have a place to put it,” Bode said, noting farmers can apply only limited quantities. Miller said state rules allow for the application of up to 3,500 gallons of manure per acre per year on his land. “That will get us pretty close to what our commercial fertilizer is now,” Miller said. Bode said it wasn’t feasible to transport manure long distances. “Will I see more in my neighborhood?” she asked. “It’s possible. “(But) I will not see (manure) hoses going from town to town,” she said. Commissioners also approved variances to move the CAFOs closer to nearby roads in order to preserve farmland. AG

‘Mad dash’ of planting is on in central North Dakota By Jenny Schlecht Agweek Staff Writer

ST. ANTHONY, N.D. — The crew at Direct Ag Supply was at a farm here on May 8, helping get a new corn planter ready for the season. The plan was for a trial run later that day. That is, if the rain held off long enough. After a slow start that included few product deliveries in April, Spence Koenig says Direct Ag Supply has plenty to do these days. “Now it’s just a mad dash,” he said. Direct Ag Supply is a seed, chemical and fertilizer dealer that operates in about a 100-mile radius around the Bismarck-Mandan area. Koenig said the company has a few customers working on planting soybeans, and corn is just getting started. Wheat is probably halfway done Koenig being planted, he said.

Some people are contemplating moving away from small grains this year. “With the later spring, we’re getting acres switched to more corn, beans and sunflower sales have been up, too,” Koenig said. Though the light rain on the way seemed likely to delay planting another day, Koenig said the moisture is welcome. “Any rain we can get, we’ll take,” he said. The North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network website showed that the precipitation from scattered storms that moved through on May 7, 8 and 9 varied greatly across the state.

In the first round of storms, on May 7, Wishek received half an inch, and Streeter had .38. Several places, including near Beach, Linton, Edgeley, Marion and Crary, received about a quarter of an inch. The May 8 storms mostly brought moisture — a quarter to a half inch in many areas — to the Red River Valley, though Robinson received .33 and Bowman .37. The May 9 showers delivered no amounts higher in North Dakota than the .16 in Streeter and in Prosper. Some places received next to nothing. National Weather Service data says Bismarck had .06 inches for the entire month of May as of the morning of May 10, and Hettinger had received .13 in that time frame. The rain came in a week in which the U.S. Drought Monitor slightly expanded the portion of North Dakota considered to be abnormally dry, from 36.95 percent to 50.05 percent. The portion of the state experiencing drought con-


ditions remained the same from the week prior, with 3.46 percent in severe drought and 35.55 percent in moderate drought. Only 10.94 percent of the state is considered to have adequate moisture. Conditions seem drier to the west and south of the company’s territory, Koenig said. But he thinks it’s too soon to say what will happen with drought conditions. “I think we’re in better condition than we were last year at this time,” he said. “We need some moisture to get everything up and growing.” Soybeans did well in last year’s drought conditions, which has led to more people considering trying the crop, Koenig said. Crop insurance is available in the area now, and the county averages are up. He heard reports of soybeans going 20 to 35 bushels to the acres in the area in the 2017 growing season. AG

A threat we can’t ignore

Agweek Staff Writer

A few years ago, I was driving near the outskirts of Fargo, N.D., the state’s largest city and one that’s grown steadily for decades. A person who knew didn’t know much about agriculture was in the car with me. As we drove, we passed a subdivision half-filled with newly built and still-under-construction houses. Around most of the subdivision were thriving fields of corn and soybeans; Fargo is in the heart of the the Red River Valley of the North, which boasts some of the world’s finest farmland. “It’s nice to see new houses going up,” the other person said. My answer was something like, “Well, it’s good for people who want more choice in where they live. It’s good for construction workers. It’s good for businesses that sell lumber and the other stuff that goes into the houses. That’s all great. But we’re losing some terrific farmland.” The other person looked at me as if I’d lost my mind and said, “There’s all kinds of farmland.” “No, there isn’t. We should be worried about that, and here’s why,” I said. The four- or five-sentence explanation I gave wasn’t very articulate, but it was sincere and, I’d like to think, fairly knowledgeable. All of us in modern agriculture recognize what’s happening. Across this country — California to New York and in the Upper Midwest, too — our limited supply of irreplaceable farmland is being irrevocably diminished. A report which I examine in a news article in this issue of Agweek documents the extent of the threat. That article has more numbers and details, but these statistics highlight the danger: ► Nearly 31 million acres of U.S. farmland, roughly the equivalent of all the farmland in Iowa, were lost to development from 1992 to 2012. ► Almost 11 million acres of U.S. farmland land best suited to intensive food and crop production were lost in the same 20-year period. That’s roughly the equivalent of California’s Central Valley. Yeah, there’s a lot of farmland. But we’re sure losing a lot, too. Houses, strip malls, roads, golf courses, apartment buildings and more — individually they may be small, but collectively they add up. The equivalent of all Iowa farmland, for goodness’ sakes! (State- and county-level data isn’t included in the report. But American Farmland Trust promises that data will be available in future reports; I’ll watch for it and write about it as warranted.) To be sure, the loss of farmland is mitigated somewhat by the ability of farmers and ranchers to produce more food per acre. One example: Average per-acre U.S. corn yields rose from 127 bushels in 1995 to 160 bushels in 2017. But as the new report mentions, world demand for food and fiber will rise 50 to 70 percent by 2050. The United States, which has more than 10 percent of the world’s arable land and an exceptionally productive food system, needs to play a leading role in supplying the additional food and fiber — a task obviously made difficult with less farmland. American Farmland Trust has three main recommendations for protecting farmland: expanding federal investment in ag land protection; supporting U.S. Department of Agriculture agencies that monitor changes to ag resources; and enacting a “comprehensive 21st century agricultural land policy platform.” The recommendations are explored further in the news article.

A role for us I respectfully add that agriculturalists have a personal one-on-role role to play, too. When the opportunity arises, we need to gently and patiently tell people outside ag that losing farmland is a serious concern. That’s what I tried to do in the car that day with the person who insisted there’s a lot of farmland. I didn’t make a big difference, but at least I tried. So should you. 6 Monday, May 14, 2018 / AGWEEK

31 million acres lost Development cuts into U.S. farmland By Jonathan Knutson

Grain Legs, Conveyors and Dryers

Agweek Staff Writer

A new report reinforces what most everyone in U.S. food production already knows: Development is irreversibly diminishing the limited supply of U.S. farmland, raising serious food-production, economic and environmental concerns. But the report from American Farmland Trust also finds that the loss of farmland is much greater than was generally known. Almost 31 million acres, double the amount previously documented, were lost to development from 1992 to 2012, according to “Farms Under Threat: The State of America’s Farmland.” The 31 million acres nationwide are nearly the equivalent of all farmland in Iowa or the entire land mass of New York State, the report noted. “Farmland is critical infrastructure, akin to roads and bridges,” said John Piotti, AFT’s president and CEO. “Without farms, there’s not only no food, but there’s no future. We need farmland to feed us and sustain our economy — but also to help restore our planet.” Agweek received an advance copy of the the report, officially released Wednesday, May 9. Other key findings include: ► About 11 million of the 31 million lost acres of U.S. farmland are “the best farmland in the nation” or land “where the soils, microclimates, growing seasons and water availability combine to allow intensive production with the fewest environmental impacts.” ► Expanding urban areas accounted for 59 percent of the lost farmland. Low-level residential development, or houses built on 1- to 20-acre plots, accounted for the other 41 percent. ► Farmland is affected disproportionately by development. Seventy percent of urban development and 62 percent of all development occurred on ag land. American farmers and ranchers now use more than 1 billion acres, or 55 percent of the land in the continental United States. The importance of U.S. agriculture — and of protecting farmland — shouldn’t be overlooked or minimized, American Farmland Trust said. Agriculture accounts for more than $1 trillion of the U.S. Gross Domestic Product and provides many environmental and recreational benefits, all of which are threatened by the loss of farmland, the report said.

Getting better at growing wheat By Jonathan Knutson Agweek Staff Writer

RED LAKE FALLS, Minn. — Minnesota farmers are good at growing wheat; they’ve been doing it since the early 1850s. But there’s always more to learn, and Minnesota Wheat is helping farmers do so. “We hear from growers about their concerns and gear our trials to that,” Lauren Prouix says. She and Melissa Geiszler are the Minnesota Wheat On-Farm Research Network’s on-farm research coordinators The grower-funded network, driven by farmers and using topics selected by them, conducts research on large plots and works on the conservation, fertility management, quality and profitability of wheat production in Minnesota. Slated for study this crop season: seeding rate trials, top-dressing nitrogen, a variable rate nitrogen protein analysis, whether adding sulfur is helpful, a fungicide trial and whether plant growth regulators can help wheat plants’ standability, Prouix and Geiszler say.

They expect to work with about 30 farmers on 40 to 50 fields. Many of the farmers will be in northwest Minnesota, where the state’s wheat production is concentrated, but Geiszler and Prouix will work with producers elsewhere in the state, too. The research is designed to be “doable” for producers to put into practice, and also to provide good, sound data, Prouix says. Minnesota Wheat is the collective name for the Minnesota Association of Wheat Growers and Minnesota Wheat Research and Promotion Council. Both are based in Red Lake Falls, Minn., and share a staff of six people, says David Torgerson, executive director of the two organizations. The Association works on lobbying and education, while the Council works on research and promotion. “We try to cover all the bases for growers,” Torgerson says.

Farm town home Red Lake Falls, a farm town about 1,400 in northwest Minnesota, is in the heart of Minnesota wheat country.

State commodity groups typically have their headquarters in the state’s largest city or capital. But Minnesota wheat growers wanted to keep Minnesota Wheat headquarters close to where most of them live. “We’ve found that it’s easier to serve them when we’re in their backyard rather than St. Paul,” Torgerson says, adding that Minnesota Wheat officials visit St. Paul, Minnesota’s capital, when appropriate. Once, wheat was grown across Minnesota. But today corn and soybeans dominate crop production in most of the state; wheat is concentrated in northwest Minnesota, where the climate is particularly well-suited to the crop. “If you went back into the 1980s, wheat was grown pretty much throughout the state. Then in the 1980s and 1990s, the disease scab was devastating to wheat, and we saw wheat production move outside the southern part of the state. Also, pricing opportunities for corn and soybeans were better,” Torgerson said. Wheat, typically grown on 2.5 million to 2.7 million Minnesota acres in the 1980s, now is

planted on about 1.1 million to 1.3 million acres annually. Most of the remaining acres are grown in rotation with soybeans, among other crops. Minnesota Wheat, which at its peak had about 1,200 members, now has about 800, a number that has stabilized in the past few years, Torgerson says. Minnesota Wheat’s mission is helping those farmers survive and thrive. “Wheat may not be sexy as corn or (soy) beans. But you still meet those growers who are excited about it and want to make it as profitable as possible on their farms. And working with those growers is exciting for us,” Prouix says. It’s not too late for Minnesota farmers to participate with wheat research this crop season. “If you’re interested in learning more about what we’re doing, or about having an on-farm trial, you can contact us.

Familiar farm bill battles start brewing again By Sara Wyant Agri-Pulse

Shortly after the U.S. House of Representatives defeated the farm bill on June 20, 2013, Rep. Justin Amash, along with hundreds of business leaders, government officials and staff, attended a $250-a-plate dinner hosted by the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI). The libertarian group, which espouses “free market” principles, made a James Bond spoof video called “Capitalism Never Dies,” and the group’s president, Lawson Bader, sported a kilt in tribute to retired actor Sean Connery. But before the elaborate Bond-themed dinner began, the master of ceremonies announced two other reasons to celebrate: CEI had just raised $1 million from sources like Google, Facebook, Koch, Altria and the Association of American Railroads. Plus, there was the political victory: the organization had helped defeat the farm bill — thanks in part to Michigan Representative Amash and dozens of other House conservatives. CEI aligned with conservative groups, such as Heritage Action, Taxpayers for Common Sense and the National Taxpayers Union, along with an eclectic mix of other organizations, including the National Black Farmers Association, Defenders of Wildlife and the Environmental Working Group, to bring down the farm bill. It was widely known that conservative Republicans had concerns about the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as the food stamp program. They supported splitting the nutrition and farm portions of the bill, while adding more work requirements for SNAP recipients. However, Amash also opposed price supports and other farm programs “because they damage the economy, harm consumers, and hurt the environment by encouraging more agricultural production than may be necessary,” he explained on his Facebook page.

Asked after the CEI dinner what it would take to win his support for the farm bill, Amash echoed concerns from many conservatives. He wanted to see big cuts in SNAP, but also in crop insurance. Fast forward to 2018 and you can see some of the same people and well-funded organizations trying to bring down the farm bill once again. They are writing papers, hosting press conferences, and engaging on social media — attempting to change almost all portions of the bill. But there are a few minor differences between 2018 and 2013. House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway (R-Texas), has support from House GOP leaders. Speaker Paul Ryan embraced the SNAP portion of the bill as part of his “welfare to work” agenda. Republican leaders signaled the importance of getting a farm bill done on time this year, even numbering the measure H.R. 2. The major tax reform package that passed last year was H.R. 1. Conaway has been meeting with the Freedom Caucus and other GOP conservative groups, hoping to convince Amash and others that the farm bill he pushed through committee has the right kind of reforms in the nutrition section of the bill — while fending off reforms in the “farm” sections of the bill. “We’re doing the right stuff on SNAP, and that’s  the focus of much of the (GOP) conference,” he said. But in many ways, Conaway is trying to thread the needle around a lot of competing interests. “It’s a question of, is there enough good stuff on the SNAP side to cause those who have had trouble in the past with the overall farm bill to vote ‘yes’ when we bring it to the floor,” he told Agri-Pulse.

Alfalfa fields: Be prepared for 2018 By Emily Glunk Meccage Montana State University

This year, I am getting a lot of reports of winter injury and winterkill in alfalfa stands throughout Montana. Following a disastrous year in 2017, where many were left short in their hay stacks and had to buy hay, this can create further issues moving into 2018. Already, I have been in several fields where it looks like the first harvest is going to be set back due to winter injury, and several pictures have crossed my desk of patchy fields that have significantly decreased or absent spring growth. So how can you tell if your alfalfa has experienced winter injury? If it looks like Glunk you have areas where plants are stunted and growing slowly, this is a good first sign. Also, evaluate the crowns of the plants. If there is only new growth coming on one side of the crown or the growth is asymmetrical, this is a good indicator

10 Monday, May 14, 2018 / AGWEEK

of winter injury. I am a big proponent of digging up a couple of plants in the spring to see what is going on underground. Look for overall health of the taproot. If you notice that there appears to be discoloration near the crown, this too can be an indicator of winter injury. Also look at stem and plant density. I prefer to evaluate stem density because it can be hard to tell if you are looking at one plant or two sometimes when evaluating plant density. If you have over 40 stems per square foot, you are probably doing OK. In younger stands, the closer we are to 50 to 55 stems per square foot, the better. If you are under that 40 stems per square foot mark, then you should consider renovating, or interseeding with a different forage species. It is easiest to do stem counts when the growth is small, around three inches, and before they get too tall and become intertwined. If you do suspect that your field has experienced winter injury, there is some good news. Most often, only the first harvest is going to be severely affected. Generally, if growing conditions are good later in the spring and summer,

the regrowth will be adequate and you can get close to normal in your later harvests. The bad news is if you have significant winter kill where plants just simply did not survive. This winter had a lot of ice sheeting, and the spring has had flooding in many areas. Alfalfa cannot survive long periods of time where there is no gaseous exchange due to ice sheeting. If it’s underwater too long, it can “drown” the plants out, or at the very least, expose it to secondary bacterial or fungal diseases. It is important to assess your fields in the spring to figure out a plan for the coming year. If your alfalfa field experienced significant winterkill and is less than a year old, you do have the opportunity to interseed or start over with new alfalfa. However, if your stand is more than a year old, autotoxicity will be too big of a risk, and interseeding or replanting alfalfa is not recommended. A good idea in this instance may be to look to an annual forage. Research has shown that on a tonnage basis, you will generally harvest more tons per acre with an annual forage

compared to a perennial, even alfalfa. This will help to put more hay in your yard for the coming winter. And with many of our new annual forage cultivars, we are still able to harvest high quality forage for our animals to consume. Overall, it is important to get out and scout your fields as soon as you can. Evaluate if there is any damage, then start planning for the coming year. Many are going to be planting late due to the large amounts of spring moisture, but we still have many options to consider if you do have to pull out your alfalfa. And as always, if you have any questions, talk to your local Extension agent, NRCS consultant, agronomist or Extension Forage Specialist.

Hunting for and frying up morel mushrooms By Cristen Clark

Special to Agweek

When warm, damp spring weather finally arrives in Iowa, morel mushrooms start to poke through the landscape in wooded areas. This brings serious mushroom hunters out of their winter slumber to forage for the finest fungi Iowa has to offer. I’m no mushroom hunter, I can thankfully turn to my brother-in-law Drew for that. He’s got all of the special secret hunting spots; he picks, cleans and prepares them. Oh, and he’s not divulging any of his secrets. He won’t even tell me where he finds them, which I’m completely okay with because combing through my hair for ticks is something I can do without! “Morel Night” is a religion  in our family. It’s a flexible holiday in which  our whole family gets together, eats mushrooms and celebrates the arrival of spring. It is one of my favorite nights of the year and if I am completely honest with you, I think my husband Mike likes it more than his own birthday. There’s nothing pretentious about it. No gifts, no dressing up, no buffet line and different side dishes to coordinate. No fancy plates or silverware; just beer or soda, and mushrooms. To make the most incredible fried morel mushrooms I’ve canvassed the countryside to find top-secret tips! 1. Make sure the mushrooms are clean and dry before you begin breading them. Slice larger mushrooms in half or even into quarters. Store them in a zip top bag with paper towels inside to take up any additional moisture. Keep them refrigerated until frying time. 2. We like to cook the mushrooms in a mixture of oil and butter. If you only fry the breaded mushrooms in butter, the dairy solids in the butter will burn at the high temperature before your mushrooms are cooked to the intended doneness. A combination of butter and oil brings up the burning temperature of the frying liquid to ensure that your mushrooms turn out perfectly. 3. Using a cast iron skillet to fry the mushrooms is a great idea. Cast iron holds heat well and encourages even frying. 4. Don’t skip the initial dredging step into the flour/cornstarch mixture. The flour clings to the slippery mushrooms so the egg wash mixture can adhere to the mushroom and not slip off. The egg wash adheres the final crunchy cracker mixture to the mushroom, so it is crucial to get that step right! Since I’m no expert on hunting morels, all I am qualified to tell you is how to prep and cook them. Here’s my simple recipe for the best fried morel mushrooms you’ll ever taste. You’ll never look at wild fungus the same way again. AG

Simple Fried Morel Mushrooms By: Drew Weyers and Cristen Clark Ingredients: 1 to 2 pounds of morel mushrooms, cleaned, sliced in half or quartered 2 ½ cups all purpose flour, divided 2 ½ cups cornstarch, divided 1 teaspoon Lawry’s Seasoned Salt ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper (optional) 2 eggs ¼ cup milk One box of Chicken in a Biskit crackers OR three sleeves of saltine crackers 1 quart of vegetable oil (or other flavorless cooking oil, such as peanut, soybean etc.) 4 tablespoons butter Kosher salt for seasoning post-frying Instructions: Add oil (enough to fill the bottom of the pan to ¾ inches up the side)  and butter to large cast iron skillet, heat to medium/

medium high heat (350 degrees using an instant read thermometer). Prepare breading station on three plates: Plate #1: Add equal parts of flour (1 ½ cups) and cornstarch (1 ½ cups) to the plate, then add 1 teaspoon seasoned salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper and whisk around. Plate #2: Add 2 eggs and ¼ cup of milk, beat until incorporated Plate #3: Add 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of cornstarch and 3 to 4 cups of crushed cracker crumbs, mix around (*if saltines are particularly flavorless, add a little seasoned salt and pepper to this mixture as well.) To prepare to fry: Dip mushrooms in flour mixture on plate number one. Shake excess flour off. Dip flour/cornstarch coated mushrooms in the egg mixture. Let excess egg wash drip off. Roll mushrooms in the cracker/flour mixture. Set aside on a plate to prepare to fry. Fry in 350 degree oil for 2-3 minutes or until golden on all sides. (Frying at 350 degrees will make your mushrooms perfect!) Remove to paper towel lined plates to cool a bit. Sprinkle on a bit of kosher salt. Serve warm, with beer or soda. *Depending on size of mushrooms, you may need to replenish various breading station plates. Have plenty of ingredients on hand! *Size of skillet will indicate the amount of oil you will need for this “shallow fry.”

Harris ‘left the tools,’ and the dream By Mikkel Pates

Agweek Staff Writer

GRAND FORKS, N.D. — A North Dakota company that has been at the center of the market for Upper Great Plains specialty crops such as buckwheat, mustard and safflower is stepping forward with new management after the death of its founder. Harris Peterson, a legend in the region’s specialty crop industry, died Jan. 27, 2018, at the age of 92. He had farmed and started processing at Drayton, N.D., in the 1950s and established a cooperative called Minn-Dak Growers Association in 1966 before making it a privately-held company in 1978 as Minn-Dak Growers Ltd. He served as chief executive officer for more than 50 years, operating it until just days before he died. For the past three years, Harris had tried to sell the company but in the end sold his shares

to his son, Harold, 69, and his grandson Jeremy, 40. The two hired General Manager Jim Blair, 55, who oversees 25 people in Grand Forks, and Dickinson, N.D.

the seeds are consumed in the same way as cereal grains but do not grow on grasses. Buckwheat is related to the rhubarb family. Minn-Dak Growers ships whole buckwheat internationally from its Dickinson plant. It also brings buckwheat into its Grand Forks plant to clean and dehull it to make buckwheat groats and other other products. Buckwheat is gluten-free. Minn-Dak Growers makes buckwheat

grits, buckwheat flour (light and dark) and farinetta, a buckwheat bran flour, which is said to be helpful in diabetic diets. The company also brings in yellow, brown and oriental mustard seed. They grind whole mustard seeds to make any iteration of mustard flour, marketed domestically and internationally. Much of the mustard goes into table mustard or into processed meats. Blair says the company is blessed with historical marketing relationships — many from Harris Peterson’s contacts — but is in the process of revitalizing its certifications under the Global Food Safety Initiative, a private organization that benchmarks safety processes worldwide. “We envision within the next crop year we’ll have those certificates in place, which should open up some better market opportunities,” Blair says. They’re also developing an “e-store,”

COVER STORY The Minn-Dak Growers Ltd. headquarters facility on the north end of Grand Forks, N.D., was built in 1978 and expanded in the 1980s and 1990s, producing buckwheat and mustard products.

to allow customers to order through a website, and in various package sizes. One key market is Japan, where customers often turn buckwheat into soba noodles. “They’ll also roast the groats and make them into ‘kasha,’” a snack food, Blair says.

Acreage comeback Minn-Dak Growers still has “multi-millions” in sales annually, Harold says, but is looking to regain some momentum. Today it handles 4,000 to 7,000 acres of mustard, and then 7,000 to 10,000 acres of buckwheat. In the past, Harris handled up to 24,000 acres of each crop — plus confection sunflowers. “We’re hoping to build it back to that, which looks promising,” Jeremy Peterson says. Harris Peterson started farming at Drayton. Initially, he built a yellow field pea business, bagging 100-pound bags of peas for the human and birdfeed markets. He expanded into canary seed, pinto beans and sunflowers, before he got into buckwheat. In the 1960s, he was a pilot and at one time the family had an aerial spraying business. Chiefly, he wanted to develop a crop processing business, a market for his farmer-neighbors,

Blair says. Minn-Dak Growers started as a farmer-owned cooperative of 1,100 growers, but eventually Harris bought it out because it was handling several crops that not all members were growing. In the 1970s, Minn-Dak Growers was the No. 4 confection sunflower company in the United States, taking in seeds at Donaldson, Minn., and removing the hulls at Drayton. Sunflower meats were shipped to Germany for the baked goods business. In those days, Harold ran the farm and oversaw the sunflower dehulling operation that ran for up to 47 weeks a year. In 1978, Harris built the plant in Grand Forks to mill mustard and expand into buckwheat. The plant expanded in the 1980s and the mid1990s. In the late 1980s, Harris and Minn-Dak Growers accounted for 20 percent of the U.S. mustard crop. In the 1990s, Minn-Dak was the only buckwheat processor in the country. The

Dickinson plant was added and marketed safflower, primarily for birdfeed.

End of an era In the past three years, Harris Peterson had attempted to sell Minn-Dak Growers to competitors, but in the end decided to keep it in the family. “Because of all of the sweat equity that he and his family had put into the business, I don’t think he could really come to terms with letting that go,” Blair says. “I think he believed his vision that this was a multi-generational opportunity” for his children, grandchildren and beyond. Harold Peterson often describes Minn-Dak Growers, as his father’s “tool,” a far-flung invention to add value. He acknowledges his father doled out “plenty of heck” if things we weren’t done on time or correctly, but that was “the way he taught you how to do it” and that that was OK. “He was a good teacher,” Harold says.

Harold, eventually aided by Jeremy, managed a 1,550-acre farm at Drayton, growing mostly wheat and canola. They are counting on Blair, a southeast Minnesota native who holds undergraduate degrees in business and accounting at Macalester College and a master’s in business administration at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Blair worked in aluminum, plastics and ethanol businesses before joining a canola processing business at Hallock, Minn. After a change in ownership, he took the job with Minn-Dak Growers in March 2017. “I spent some time with Harris, didn’t get enough time with him, to try and learn what his vision was so I could emulate his vision and carry it on,” Blair says. For the time being, Harris Peterson’s office — surrounded by framed snapshots of his family and business triumphs — will remain. The table where Jeremy sat and listened to his grandfather make deals is still there, as it was, and is used for business meetings. Harold Peterson acknowledges there were projects his father didn’t complete, but only because he ran out of time. Harris Peterson had tried to develop buckwheat into a neutraceutical — a food that does the work of medicines, but fell short of corralling a corporate partner for the venture. “Harris only wanted to supply the buckwheat and farinetta,” Harold says. Harold says Harris never sensed that he was running out of time. “He was ready to go to work every day. He said I’m going to be here 10 years longer than you are,” Harold says. “Actually, it’s still his company. He made it and it’s his legacy. We’re going to — hopefully — keep it up.” AG

Minn-Dak Growers Ltd. still markets products under a “Heart of the Valley” logo that Harris Peterson developed in the 1960s.

Instead of a sentimental Mother’s Day column, I’ve decided to go the realistic route and broach a topic that is an everyday struggle for many of us. Many moms feel like they don’t measure up thanks to the age-old comparison conundrum that’s now fueled by society, blogs and social media. All you moms know what I’m talking about. No matter what kind of mother we are or aren’t, we can’t do enough. We aren’t enough. In honor and celebration of Mother’s Day, please stop comparing yourself. You are enough. You are perfectly chosen for this role. You can meet the needs of the children you have been given. If you aren’t a mother, look around — there are children around you to love. Children in your community, schools, churches and local clubs in need of your mentorship and love. You are enough. The journey to motherhood varies from the conventional means and fertility treatments to adopting an embryo or a child of any age. Maybe you’re not a mother in the traditional sense but a stepmom, aunt or friend. Mother, one way or another or not at all, you are enough. Regardless of your path, this Mother’s Day don’t allow your story to be less than what you think it should have been. Your precious story is your own, unique and like no other. All of our stories include struggles and ugly, awkward patches. I have ADVERTISER: AG SYSTEMS friends whose stories involves brokenness.

We all have joyous moments, the happiest of days andTO:true EMAIL TO: woven into the fabric of our unique stories. In the days ahead, reach out to your friends and family whose FAX TO:members Mother’s Day might not be filled with joy and happiness. Give them a call. Not a text or an email, but an actual phone call to chat with them. Listen. Share a favorite memory of them and their loved ones. Stop by for a visit. This Mother’s Day, there’s a mother you know who feels like she’s not measuring up. She has a fractured relationship with a child. She hasn’t forgiven herself for her past actions. She mourns for the child she lost. She has little ones and is doing her best to provide for them but doesn’t feel she is keeping up. Can you offer support? Can you love on her a little more? Regardless of how you fit into the picture, you are enough to show her she is enough this Mother’s Day. Oftentimes we wait for someone else to take the lead. Someone else will call her. Someone else will invite her over. But should that someone be you? You are enough. Strip away the titles and labels of what and who a mother should be. Love the mothers in your life. Meet a mother right where she is and love her. In my 21 years as a mother, I don’t have it all figured out and never will. I learn from those around me, from those who meet me where I am, who build me up, encourage me, listen to me and forgive me. I don’t waste my time comparing. I’ve lowered my expectations. I love my kids more. I focus on what is best for my kids, and the rest of the details fall away or into place. I am enough for my kids. They know me as their imperfect, messy mother who fervently loves them right where they are.

AG B RIEFS Burgum waives hours of service for anhydrous haulers BISMARCK, N.D. — Gov. Doug Burgum has signed an emergency executive order granting a waiver of hours of service for drivers of commercial vehicles transporting anhydrous ammonia fertilizer. North Dakota farmers are facing a shortage of fertilizer due to significant late season snowfall in other parts of the upper Midwest, which has delayed and shortened the spring planting season across the region. Commercial truck drivers have been required to move more fertilizer in a shorter time frame. State Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring requested the waiver of hours of service to ensure that sufficient anhydrous ammonia resources are available to farmers.

The emergency order will remain in effect through May 30. All road safety and vehicle compliance regulations still apply.

Soy Insights Sponsored Content

Promoting the value of essential amino acids in soybeans The world measures and values soybeans on their crude protein content, but in the Dakotas and Minnesota, protein is typically less than in South American beans. However, essential amino acids, or EAAs — what nutritionists use to formulate livestock feed rations — are higher in northern climate beans. EAAs — phenylalanine, valine, threonine, tryptophan, methionine, leucine, isoleucine, lysine, and histidine — cannot be made by the body and must come from food. According to farmers and researchers, EAAs are a superior way to evaluate soybean quality. Mike Langseth, a farmer from Barney, N.D., is on the Northern Soy Marketing Committee, a cooperative effort of soybean councils in the Dakotas and Minnesota. They’re working with international buyers to promote the value of essential amino acids in soybean sources.

Members of the committee recently traveled to southeast Asia to provide education about the quality of northern soybeans. They also discussed a simple metric, the “critical amino acid value,” or CAAV, that more accurately describes the value of soybeans and

soybean meal. CAAV is the sum of the five most critical amino acids — lysine, cysteine, methionine, threonine and tryptophan. “We want the quality profile that buyers of soybeans around the world are looking for to include the amino acid content, because that’s where the value really is,” says Langseth. “As that value gets recognized more and more, the gap that we’re getting between our basis and the basis of Brazilian beans should start to narrow. And that will be bringing the value to soybean producers in the Northern Plains.” Langseth says one goal is to try and get the measure of the essential amino acids to be part of the contract language. And he says the biggest challenge is convincing the large international marketers that are buying and selling beans, like Cargill and CHS, to recognize EAA content.

Farmers guiding research for soil health By Abbey Wick

NDSU Extension Soil Health Specialist

Linking research to on-farm application is really important, especially in the world of soil health. To do this effectively, farmers should be an integral part of the conversation. Researchers should share what they know about the technical aspects of soil health and listen to others about concerns and questions. Consultants should be sharing what they see on a broad scale. Extension should be learning and sharing information collected across the state. Industry should share information on how equipment can do things like inter-seed cover crops. Government agencies can share and collect information to develop effective programs and educational trainings. There are many groups that should be involved in soil health and this is exactly what we try to do with the Soil Health Research and Extension (SHARE) Farm. This project was started in 2013 through commodity group funding (North Dakota Corn Growers Association, North Dakota Soybean Council and North Dakota Wheat Commission) and involves research plots on-site along with an extension program to share information. Though we do two-day bus tours, field days and workshops, the Cafe Talks are probably the most recognized extension program associated with the SHARE Farm. With Cafe Talks, we’re creating a soil health knowledge network where we talk about and solve issues collectively. This network includes all of the groups mentioned above. We did a knowledge network map of individuals who came to the Cafe Talks from 2014-2016 to show what connections are being made. Let me explain what everything means: Cafe Talk locations are highlighted with a royal blue square and the name of the location. Blue circles indicate farmers, light green are NDSU scientists, dark green are NDSU Extension, red are crop consultants, yellow are government agency, orange indicates industry representatives, and grey means unknown profession. We had 168 people come to our Cafe Talks between 2014 and 2016, so that’s how many circles are in the figure. Now, let’s interpret what all these circles mean. Looking at the top 10 most influential people (or the largest circles) in the network — five are farmers, two are researchers, two are NDSU Extension specialists and one is a crop consultant.

Abbey Wick/Special to Agweek Soil health knowledge network from the 2014 to 2016 Cafe Talks

This means we have four groups or professions that are interacting often and are highly influential in the network. They may be the ones providing the most advice or sharing experiences — in other words, these are the “go-to” people. Let’s talk connections — the circles in the figure are connected with 182 lines, meaning that there have been 182 connections (or conversations) made during the Cafe Talks from 2014 to 2016. Plus, 180 of those connections occurred more than once! Those connections and the repeated interactions are what is advancing the use of soil health building practices across North Dakota. The big picture is that we have several people in different professions who live in totally different areas talking with

each other about soil health. They are coming up with solutions to specific on-farm issues and answering each other’s questions. In the first two years of Cafe Talks, we have created a support group to help us all advance in our understanding of soil health building practices. Join the soil health network — start sharing your ideas and learning from others. Develop those relationships that will help you on your farm and allow you to help others on their farms or with their programs. We have a calendar of events and information on upcoming field tours posted on the NDSU Soil Health webpage ( We will keep posting information throughout the summer, so check back often. AG

Conaway is also telling conservatives that amendments that would require means testing, payment limits, cuts to crop insurance premium subsidies, and reform of the sugar program, could bring down the entire bill. And if that happens, it would risk the SNAP reforms that are meant to win conservative support. To win approval on the House floor, where the GOP holds a 235-193 seat majority, Conaway will need every Republican he can find because he can’t count on any Democrats to support the package. Democrats don’t like the bill because of changes that were made in the nutrition title of the bill, requiring more people to work or enroll in training programs to qualify for SNAP benefits. They also don’t like the commodity title. During the committee’s markup, no Democrats voted in favor of the bill or offered amendments to change the measure. The House Agriculture Committee’s ranking member, Collin Peterson of Minnesota, said recently that Democrats won’t offer any amendments and will be united in opposing the bill when it comes to the House floor. They

argue that the bill is unfixable because of the SNAP reforms and the inadequacy of the farm income support. And they are guessing that Republicans will not be able to find enough votes to pass the bill on their own. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is also weighing in. She’s pleased with how her Democratic colleagues have handled the House farm bill debate. “I’m very proud of Collin Peterson and the members of our ag committee who are fighting for farmers,” Pelosi said during a recent visit to Iowa. “They have your back, but we don’t have all the votes.” House Republicans don’t either, she added, and she’s waiting to see if the farm bill actually comes to the floor next week as planned. “Supposedly this is coming up soon, but it was going to come up the week before last. We’ll see if they go forward with it.” Oddly enough, some lobbyists believe that Pelosi’s comments may help Conaway’s cause to pass a new farm bill. “There are a lot of conservative House members who don’t like this farm bill,” noted one long-time farm bill observer who asked to remain anonymous. “But they hate Pelosi even more.” AG

A good week for planting By Jonathan Knutson Agweek Staff Writer

A lot of work remains, but Upper Midwest farmers finally made a strong start to the 2018 planting season. Wheat, oats, barley and sugar beets all enjoyed substantial gains in planted acreage in the week ending May 6, according to the weekly crop progress report released May 7 by the National Agricultural Statistics Service, an arm of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. An unusually cool spring delayed planting in much of the area, stressing farmers who waited anxiously to get into their fields. But some of that concern is partially alleviated after brisk planting in the first week of May. Wheat, normally the first of the region’s three major crops (corn and soybeans are the other) predictably enjoyed most of the planting gains. South Dakota, in particular, saw extensive gains in spring wheat acreage. Farmers in the state had 51 percent of their spring wheat planted as of May 6, up from 12 percent a week earlier. That means 39 percent of the state’s wheat acres were planted in a single week. Minnesota

farmers had 27 percent of spring wheat planted by May 6, up from 2 percent a week earlier. Montana producers had 24 percent of their spring wheat in the ground by May 6, up from 6 percent a week earlier. North Dakota spring wheat producers had planted 20 percent of their crop by May 6, from 3 percent a week earlier. Oats and barley saw gains in planted acres similar to those of spring wheat. Sugar beet producers were especially active. In North Dakota, they had planted 66 percent of their crop by May 6, up from 10 percent a week earlier. Minnesota sugar beet producers had 50 percent of their crop in the ground by May 6, up from 10 percent a week earlier. Corn and soybean planting began in earnest in the week ending May 6 in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. Even so, the planting pace for both crops still trails the five-year averages in all three states. Keep in mind, however, that unusually early planting starts in several recent years skewed the five-year averages. To read the full report: https://release.nass. AG

It’s amazing what a little rain can do for the land and the spirit By Jenny Schlecht Agweek Staff Writer

I heard it faintly, late at night, above the sounds of the house settling into sleep. My 2-year-old had just finished her nightly round of crying, singing, talking and laughing when I realized the rhythmic pitter-patter I heard came not from her feet against the wall, in time with her made-up tunes, but from outside. Rain. I opened the window to see if I was right, breathing in the earthy smell we so rarely experienced last spring and summer. The drops fell steadily, wetting the porch and the dirt of the driveway. That first shot of rain mostly missed us, and what we got was no downpour. Places to the south got an inch or more, but we had to be content with a tenth of an inch. But the next day brought another two tenths, with a little more in the forecast. And suddenly the world started to look like a different place. The grass around the houses, which had been a mix of yellow and brown and pale green, now shone a bright emerald. The dry grasses left behind from last year in the pastures and the conservation lands now had a little cushion of green emerging beneath them. Tractors were left idle in the fields across the area. Though everyone has been itching to get crops planted after a prolonged winter, no one is complaining about the rain in central or western North Dakota. Last year’s drought affected more than just the bottom line of producers. It’s not easy to watch crops falter in the fields, nor is it easy to cull more and more cows in efforts to stretch precious feed through the winter. Every dry day and every puff of dust that followed a vehicle down the road or across the field also ate away at the optimism of the people who depend on the land. It may be a new year, but last summer’s conditions still are on the minds of many in the region. In North Dakota, winter lasted longer than normal, but it still was light in terms of snow and moisture in many places. Hay supplies stockpiled from past, wetter years have begun to dwindle as turnout time nears. A common refrain you hear when you talk to ranchers is, we can make it through one year of drought but not two. My husband planted quite a bit of land into forages last fall. He figured he’d need more hay after having to cut far more acres than usual last year. But that rye and triticale needs moisture to grow. The little showers that came through mean the fuzz of green out in the fields will begin to turn lush, and, as long as we get more timely rains, there should be hay to bale in early summer. A little rain hasn’t cleared up all of the concerns. We know too well that we might not get any more. We may again be praying for rain or for those who need it. We may watch herds go down the road and crops wither. But a dark cloud right now means a lot to the people who are putting their seeds in the ground or waiting to turn cattle to pasture and to make hay. I checked in with an extension agent in south central North Dakota after the first round of showers went through. “It rained, so everyone’s happy,” she told me. Time will tell whether this was the beginning of the end of the drought conditions that still plague our region or just a little relief. Either way, it lifted some spirits and provided some needed hope. AG

‘We can be smarter’

loss of farmland loss, the report said. American Farmland Trust recommends “a bold and comprehensive national strategy” to protect farmland. Its three key recommendations are: ► Double funding in the 2018 farm bill protect farmland through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Conservation Easement Program, which provides financial and technical assistance to help conserve agricultural lands and wetlands and their related benefits. ► Supporting and fully funding USDA programs that “provide unbiased information to help monitor changes in U.S. agricultural resources.” That includes funding for a new 50-state Tenure, Ownership and Transfer of Agricultural Land survey. ► “Enacting a 21st century agricultural land protection platform,” which includes “a new level of federal commitment.” One example of what American Farmland Trust wants to see: enacting federal tax code changes that encourage keeping ag land in production and transferring it from one generation of farmers and ranchers to the next.

AFT worked with Conservation Science Partners, a nonprofit conservation organization, on the report. USDA’s National Resource Conservation Service, or NRCS, provided technical and financial support. A National Advisory Committee provided additional guidance; one of the committee members was Mary Podoll, North Dakota state conservationist with the NRCS.

Podoll told Agweek she served on the committee while working as deputy chief for soil survey and resource assessment at NRCS. The new report utilized, among other sources of data, the NRCS’s Natural Resource Inventory, which observes trends in land use and natural resource conditions. Collecting and analyzing data is crucial to protecting farmland, Podoll said.

“We can be smarter (about development), and data collection is the key,” she said. The new report doesn’t include state-level data. But a separate study released later this year will examine farmland loss state by state and look at the effectiveness of state farmland protection policies, American Farmland Trust said. Podoll said the state-level data also will be interesting and useful. AG

Saskatchewan food company sues USDA By Mikkel Pates

Agweek Staff Writer

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A Saskatchewan company has filed suit in U.S. District Court in Sacramento against the U.S. Department of Agriculture, alleging improper and inconsistent enforcement of U.S. grain import laws. Sunrise Foods International Inc., based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, was blocked in its effort to off-load cracked corn at Stockton, Calif, on March 6. A grain trader for the company said the company would not be interested in commenting on the suit. The shipment reportedly was blocked for 50 days and eventually departed for parts unknown. The ship included corn from Kazakhstan, Moldova and Russia, which U.S. organic promoters say are not approved for shipping corn to the U.S. The ship was loaded in Turkey, which is on a European list for suspect organic shipments.

Improperly stopped? Sunrise Foods is represented in the suit by Holland & Knight LLP of Los Angeles. The company sources cereal grains, feed grains, oilseed and pulses and delivers to the U.S. and worldwide. Jacob Neufeld, chief executive officer for Sunrise Foods, says the company was established in 1997 by Saskatchewan organic farmers and others and declines to say who owns it today. The company regularly imports “organic cracked corn, a feed product” to the U.S., primarily for poultry and dairy feed, according to the suit. It accesses the product through Tiryaki Agro Food Industry and Trade Inc. and its “Diasub” organic

subsidiary. Diasub coats it with organic sunflower seed oil to prevent dust, extend storage life and prevent insect contamination. The lawsuit says the company had imported 16 cargo holds of the products in the six months before the suit and had brought shipments without problems through ports in Delaware, North Carolina, Louisiana and California. Neufeld tells Agweek that the company was complying with Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service rules, which allow grain to be shipped in if it meets processing standards. A Wisconsin-based organic grain marketing group, the Organic Farmers’ Agency for Relationship Marketing (OFARM), which has clients in Minnesota and the Dakotas, had reported suspect shipments and welcomed the federal action as a sign of demanding stricter enforcement to combat the import of fake or poorly documented organic imports. Neufeld says there is no question that the corn in the shipment was from organic production.

USDA vs USDA? Sunrise is suing U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue, as well as several agencies, including U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and the USDA’s APHIS and its National Organic Program. James Bobbe, director of OFARM, says the case may be evidence that federal officials are becoming more concerned about shipments from certain countries. “We will see if CBP can stand up to this,” Bobbe said.

OFARM on Feb. 21 filed a complaint on two ships — the “Mountpark,” and the “Easter Hope,” based on their Turkish port of origin. Bobbe says OFARM had received information from an industry source that Mountpark was laden with grain from countries that are not approved for shipping corn to the U.S. (The Easter Hope had been mislabeled, was from Argentina and was allowed to off-load wheat for feed purposes.) OFARM notified the National Organic Program of the countries of origin on the corn, which may have triggered the Customs and Border Patrol action on the Mountpark shipment, Bobbe said. The CBP works with the APHIS to prevent harmful plant and animal pests and diseases from entering the U.S. The CBP and APHIS prevent corn from coming into the U.S. unless it at least 51 percent “cracked,” on grounds that whole corn could harbor certain diseases. According to Sunrise, the Mountpark arrived at the Port of San Francisco about Feb. 26, was tested Feb. 28 and was cleared for unloading for livestock feed manufacturing. On March 7, the ship headed for the Port of Stockton, Calif. Sunrise Foods says the CBP received “information regarding the country of origin” from “another government agency” and “did not make any efforts to inquire or verify any information regarding the cargo directly with Sunrise.” On March 12, the CBP notified Sunrise by email that the shipments were rejected. CBP and APHIS ordered Sunrise Foods to “re-export or destroy” the shipment within 24

hours. The corn did not meet the agencies’ definition of cracked corn. A CBP agriculture specialist initially suggested the “possibility of treating the corn at an unload facility at Stockton, known as “Penny-Newman,” but the agency later changed its mind.

‘Or processed’ Sunrise says its shipments should have been allowed because they were “produced or processed in Turkey,” and not Russia, Kazakhstan or Moldova. They say the CBP was only required to inspect for “pests and pathogens” and required an “impossible standard” for cracking the corn. He says the rules should allow the cracked corn into the U.S., even if it was harvested in a country from which whole grain corn shipments are not allowed. Sunrise lawyers say the company tried in vain to get CBP, APHIS and USDA to “sample test and inspect” the cracked corn as they “are required to do, they refused to do so.” Sunrise officials met with APHIS officials daily from March 20 to March 27. Bobbe say the ship left the area after 50 days, anchored 1.5 miles offshore and reportedly left for Panama. Sunrise said the ship was incurring $23,500 in losses daily and risking product deterioration. Re-exporting to Turkey or destroying the shipment “as suggested by Defendants,” are “not viable options” and could cost “over several million dollars in losses,” the company said in its suit. The company said it would cause “irreparable harm” to Sunrise business relationships. AG

Bushel marketing tool gets $7M boost By Mikkel Pates

Agweek Staff Writer

FARGO, N.D. — Bushel, a software platform owned by Myriad Mobile LLC, of Fargo, on May 10 announced it had raised $7 million in its recent private investment round to “accelerate its patent-pending digital platform for the grain industry.” Jake Joraanstad, the company’s chief executive officer and co-founder, said the company started raising funds in January for the Bushel platform. He declined to disclose the new investors but said they are led by “private investors in the agriculture and software industries.” “This puts rocket fuel behind the Bushel platform,” Joraanstad said. The money will be

used to “expand Bushel’s reach; accelerate new features, research and development and customer success; and continue evaluating strategic acquisition opportunities,” Joraanstad said. Joraanstad Myriad Mobile was founded in 2011. The company has 60 employees, of which half work on the Bushel platform. The private company normally doesn’t share financials, but Joraanstad noted that it was profitable in the first quarter of 2018. Bushel was launched in 2017 after an earlier fundraising round of $1.5 million from a different

set of investors, who are still investors, Joraanstad said. Bushel acquired Omaha-based iNet Solutions and their FarmCentric agribusiness platform in December 2017. Late last week, Bushel launched an “eSignature” function, as a “premium feature add-on” that lets farmers sign contracts from their phone. Initially available in 10 pilot locations, Bushel features are available for more than 400 grain elevator and ethanol plant locations in the U.S. and Canada. About 30 of those are in North Dakota, with a “massive reach, all over the country,” he said, with many in the Midwest but also on East Coast and West Coast. More than 20,000 growers “have access” to Bushel-powered smartphone apps, and more than 10,000 have uploaded and used the app.

Under the Bushel system, grain buyers including Landus Cooperative, of Des Moines, Iowa, Agtegra Cooperative, Aberdeen, S.D., (formerly Wheat Growers) and Flint Hills Resources, Wichita, Kan., provide their customers with “branded versions” of Bushel’s mobile platforms, allowing farmers to access real-time information on scale tickets, contract settlements, cash bids and other details. The Bushel app is free to the farmer. Ryan Raguse, Myriad Mobile’s chairman and co-founder, said the products are easy to use and built with a team “who understand the fundamentals of farming.” It is a “robust, efficient and scalable digital platform” that allows “fragmented systems” to better interact in a “secure cloud-based infrastructure.” AG Monday, May 14, 2018 / AGWEEK 23

Cattle summary RECEIPTS: Auctions Direct Video/Internet

Total This Week 216,400 54,700 6,000 216,400 Last Week 250,300 65,000 61,000 376,300 Last Year 225,900 48,400 54,600 328,900 Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold steady to 2.00 lower. Fundamentally speaking, feeder cattle demand can only be moderate at this time on all weights of feeders as farmers have turned their attention to the GPS monitors that are making sure the corn rows are straight. With that segment of buyers on the sidelines for a week or two, that leaves the order buyers from feedyards to come in and gobble up the available supplies of feeders this week. The cash fed cattle market has been strong and the volume purchased by packers the past couple of weeks is not by any means record breaking, however it is notable in the fact that they were willing to take on inventory. Due to that increased volume, packers are not aggressively chasing the market this week and are content to set back, kick their heels up and wait to buy cattle cheaper. How much cheaper and if any significant volume has yet to be determined as sellers have dug in for a late Friday trade. Thursday was a nice up day for the CME Cattle complex, however it has not been friendliest this week with the front month June Live Cattle was only 1.65 higher on the week, despite the near $20.00 difference between cash and futures. The next three months of Live Cattle contracts were 0.60 to 0.85 lower on the week. Feeder cattle futures had nice upticks as well on Thursday, however all of the listed 2018 contracts still closed the week 1.98 to 2.68 lower. Last Friday at Fort Pierre Livestock in Sort Pierre, SD a package of 719 lb steers sold at 172.00 and two loads per lot of 816 and 822 lb steers sold at 152.00 and 153.00 respectively. On Monday at Callaway Livestock Auction in Kingdom City, MO a load of 707 lbs steers sold at 160.50. On Tuesday in the hills of North Central MO at Unionville Livestock, a load of 819 lb steers sold at 146.50, before a load of 917 lb steers sold at 140.10. On Tuesday at Imperial Livestock Market in Imperial, NE a load of 723 lbs steers sold at 165.00, while a load of bigger brothers sold at 145.00. Analysts were encouraged with last week’s slaughter rate of 647K and were anticipating a larger rate this week as large boxed-beef movement is helping to keep the supply chain moving to meet seasonal peak beef demand. However, industry had other plans and the Estimated Slaughter was reported at 645K for this week. Packer margins continue to be positive in a large way as the Choice boxed beef cutout closed this week at 230.97, 2.67 higher than a week ago, while Select cutouts closed at 208.69, 0.80 lower than last Friday. Overall, the positive fundamentals of good beef demand and export sales are encouraging, however packers and retailers will pay close attention to beef sales this weekend with Mother’s Day in the windshield and the Memorial Day weekend coming up soon. Planters in the fields were very prevalent last week in the Corn Belt as Indiana posted a 34 percent increase in acreage planted in one week; Illinois - 42 percent increase; Iowa - 23 percent increase and Nebraska - 25 percent increase. Indiana and Illinois are now ahead of their 5 year average in corn planted, while Nebraska and Iowa are getting closer to normal plantings as warmer weather has pushed into the regions. Drought still persists in the Southwest as Exceptional Drought classification now is in 7 states, and ranchers in Moderate to Severe Drought areas are very concerned about the limited livestock water. Auction volume this week included 52 percent weighing over 600 lbs and 45 percent heifers.

Lower ending stocks for row crops Wheat The wheat market was under pressure all week after Chicago and Kansas City contracts reached new highs for the move to levels last seen since late July 2017. Rain forecasts dominated the trade this week. Dry regions of Australia, southern Russia and both U.S. winter and spring wheat belts all showed increased chances of rain in six to 10 day forecasts leading to heavy selling pressure. The monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimate (WASDE) report was released May 10. All U.S. wheat ending stocks are estimated to be 1.070 billion bushels for 2017-18 and 955 million bushels for 2018-19. These numbers were higher than pre-report estimates of 1.067 billion and 923 million. All winter wheat is projected at 1.19 billion bushels, 6 percent less than a year ago. The winter wheat yield is projected at 48.1 bushels per acre, down 2.1 bushels from last year. Hard red winter wheat is projected at 647 million bushels, down 14 percent from last year’s crop. Soft red winter wheat is projected at 315 million bushels, up 8 percent from a year ago. White winter wheat is projected at 229 million bushels. Each of these classes was at or slightly above pre-report estimates. For 2017-18, European Union production is estimated at 151.58 million metric tons, the former Soviet Union 12 at 142.20 million metric tons and Canada at 30.0 million metric tons. Winter wheat ratings improved 1 percent in the good to excellent category at 34 percent. Fair is at 29 percent and poor to very poor remained at 37 percent. This compares to 53 percent good to excellent last year. Winter wheat headed is at 33 percent compared to 41 percent for the five-year average. Spring wheat is 30 percent planted compared to 51 percent normally. Spring wheat emergence is at 4 percent nationally compared to 22 percent for the five-year average. After breaking sharply April 5-10, the Russian Ruble has stabilized. However, Black Sea Region wheat futures rose 3.1 percent last week to $205.50 per metric tons due to ongoing concern about crop development as southern Russia has been dry. Weekly export sales for all wheat totaled 3.1 million bushels with 1.3 million bushels for the 2017-18 marketing year. This puts total marketing year sales at 864.9 million bushels, 16 percent below the previous marketing year. Marketing year shipments total 770.6 million bushels, 13 percent below the previous year. For the week ending May 10, July contracts for Minneapolis wheat were down 14 cents at $6.09, down 19.75 cents at $5.065 for Chicago wheat, and down 28.75 cents at $5.27 for Kansas City wheat.

Corn The USDA came out with bullish numbers in this month’s WASDE report, but corn futures did not show a reaction to the new numbers. U.S. ending stocks came in near trade expectations. U.S. ending stocks for 2018-19 are expected to come in at 1.682 billion bushels versus average pre-report trade estimates of 1.63 billion bushels. Estimates ranged from 1.5 billion bushels to 1.9 billion bushels. The USDA lowered Brazil’s corn production estimate 5 million metric tons to 87 million metric tons (3.4 billion bushels) versus trade estimates of 88.2 million metric tons and USDA’s April estimates of 92 million metric tons. CONAB did not lower their corn yield as much as the trade was expecting and estimates 89.2 million metric tons. The USDA kept Argentina’s corn crop at 33 million metric tons (1.3 billion

bushels) which was slightly above pre-report estimates. USDA’s estimate for 2018-19 world ending stocks were lowered much more than expected. World ending stocks came in at 159.15 million metric tons versus pre-trade estimates of 182 million metric tons. The trade guesses ranged from 150 million metric tons to 192 million metric tons. President Trump on May 9 announced that he will withdraw the U.S. from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and restore sanctions. This is bullish news for crude oil, but much of this news may have already been built into the market. France, Germany and the United Kingdom expressed they were not on board with Trump’s decision and said they intend to preserve the 2015 agreement. The question is, if it is even possible for them to make the agreement work on their own. This week the White House announced a decision to allow E15 sales year-round. On the negative side, President Trump has said he wants to allow exported ethanol and other biofuels to count towards the annual volume obligations by the Environmental Protection Agency and Renewable Identification Number credits will be allowed for those exports. The Renewable Fuels Association and National Corn Growers association are against counting RIN credits on exports toward overall renewable volume obligations. This announcement sent D-6 RIN prices 10 to 25 cents lower. Generally, when D-6 RIN prices are higher, there is more incentive for refineries to blend ethanol in gasoline. Nothing has been finalized from these meetings, and it may take a couple of months to iron out the details. The trade was looking for U.S. corn planting at 30-35 percent complete. Commodity Futures Trading Commission data on May 1 showed the funds really adding to their already strong net long stance, moving from net long 123,000 contracts to net long 186,000 contracts. Corn prices are still technically in an uptrend. December support is at $4.165. Next support after that is $4.0225 and then support is down at $3.925 - $3.95. New resistance is last week’s highs of $4.2275 and then the contract highs of $4.295 seen on July 11,, 2017. For the week ending May 10, July corn was down 4.5 cents and December corn was 1.5 cents for the week.

Soybeans The USDA came out with bullish numbers in this month’s WASDE report. Ending stocks came in well below trade expectations. U.S. ending stocks for 2018-19are expected to come in at 415 million bushels versus average pre-report trade estimates of 535 million bushels. Estimates ranged for 400 million bushels to 700 million bushels. The USDA raised Brazil’s soybean production estimates to 117 million metric tons (4.3 billion bushels) versus trade estimates of 116.6 million metric tons and USDA’s March estimates of 115 million metric tons. CONAB raised Brazil’s soybean crop 2 million metric tons to 117

million metric tons and did not lower their corn yield as much as the trade was expecting at 89.2 million metric tons. The USDA lowered Argentina’s soy crop to 39 million metric tons (1.43 billion bushels) which was close to pre-report estimates and lower than USDA’s March forecast of 40 million metric tons. Average trade estimates for 2018-19 world ending stocks were lowered more than expected. World ending stocks came in at 86.7 million metric tons versus pre-trade estimates of 91.1 million metric tons. The trade guesses ranged from 75.5 million metric tons to 97 million metric tons. Soybean futures have been chopping around as the trade is trying to digest what news is most important at the moment. Soon the only news that will matter again is U.S. weather, but analysts are mixed on if the past few weeks of favorable weather is bearish or bullish for soybean acres. There are also some policy talks in the works at the White House that could give soybeans direction in the near term. Trade talks with China will continue the week of May 13-20 after the first round of negotiations went nowhere. Exports have been poor all year long, so some positive news out of these meetings is needed to give U.S. exports a boost. Brazil has taken a larger share of China’s soybeans purchases as Brazil’s currency is at its lowest level since June 2016, and Argentina’s currency is at a record low. Soybean futures closed down at two month lows on May 7 but the May WASDE report is looking to give them new life. November soybean resistance is still the April 2 high of $10.60 and if we break that, it is the January 16 high of $10.80. November support is at $10.10 and then the psychological $10 mark. Soybeans are still technically in a long-term uptrend that started the end of May 2017. CFTC data on May 1 showed the funds adding net long positions, moving from net long 170,000 contracts to net long 177,000 contracts. For the week ending May 10, July 2017 soybeans were down 15.5 cents and November soybeans were down 6.25 cents.

Canola For the week ending May 10, July canola futures in Winnipeg were up $6.10 Canadian at $533.20 per metric tons. The Canadian dollar was up .0061 to .7840. This brings the U.S. price to $18.96 per hundredweight. ► Velva, N.D., $18.76 per hundredweight, September at $17.56. ► Enderlin, N.D., $19.55 per hundredweight, September at $18.17. ► Hallock, Minn., $18.92 per hundredweight, September at $17.79. ► Fargo, N.D., $19.30 per hundredweight, September at $18.00.
