Minn-Dak Farmers Co-op to miss beet slice schedule by a month By Mikkel Pates

Agweek Staff Writer

WAHPETON, N.D. — Minn-Dak Farmers Cooperative was supposed to have been done slicing sugar beets June 5, but is expected to continue through the end of the month — perhaps into July. That’s due to a large 2017 crop and an expensive equipment breakdown in March. “Here we sit. It’s June 5 and we’re still slicing beets,” says Kurt Wickstrom, Minn-Dak president and CEO. “I think we have 240,000 tons to slice.” The company typically tries to size the storage piles for a May 20 end-date. The board projected the longer campaign based on a 9,700-ton-per-day slice to accommodate a 30.5-ton per-acre crop.

No backup Things were going fine until the company’s diffusion tower broke down in mid-March, interrupting processing for about 13 days. That was followed by the third-warmest May on record. A diffusion tower is a key component of the factory that extracts about 85 percent of the sugar and there is only one per factory — no backup. Beet cossettes — slices of beets — go into the bottom of the tower, which is a vessel that is about 35 feet wide and 115 feet tall. It works like a big grain auger, with flighting that slowly lifts the beet pulp up as hot water cascades down, flowing through and removing the sugar. When the pulp comes out the top, it is dried and sold as livestock feed. When full, the tower holds 3,000 tons of compressed pulp. “When your diffusion tower fails, your whole factory stops because you don’t have a backup diffusion tower,” he says. Components in the bottom third of the tower had to be replaced. BMA, the German manufacturer who made the tower, last summer had done a detailed inspection and concluded it was in good shape. “None of us could have anticipated it,” Wickstrom says of the failure. A cause has not been determined. Wickstrom praised the Minn-Dak staff and the repair teams for getting the piece repaired in 13 days, rather than the 30-day norm. BMA had a technician on-site within 36 hours of the failure. BMA air-freighted a new set of bottom screens from Germany to fit the factory’s unique size. Other equipment was twisted and custom-made at machine shops “from Winnipeg to Minneapolis,”

Forum News Service/Agweek/Mikkel Pates A big 2017 crop, followed by the failure of Minn-Dak Farmers Cooperative’s “diffusion tower” -- a silo at left that is 35 feet in diameter and 115 feet tall -- cost a precious 13 days of downtime in March

Wickstrom said. Two crews of 20 outside contractors were on site 24 hours a day, taking broken pieces out of the tower and putting in new pieces as they arrived. Wickstrom was “very disappointed that it failed, but we did everything we possibly could to minimize the downside,” he says. About 130,000 tons of beets would have been processed through that down time. Minn-Dak had expected to process 2.56 million tons but now expect to slice 2.43 million to 2.46 million tons.

Another month The good news is the beets are storing better than expected. In mid-May, a pile at the factory that was simply covered in plastic had about a foot deep of deteriorated beets on the top — “empty carcasses” — and that insulated the beets below. Even after 90-degree days in May, the piles are “frozen to the top,” insulated by a slimy layer of 1.5 feet of deteriorated beets on the surface. The company is working on its final exterior pile and then will go to its three sheds with 80,000 tons

each. Minn-Dak for the first time leased “chillers” to keep the beets in those sheds frozen. “We added a chiller system to the middle shed five weeks ago, and when we opened the doors to put the chiller in that shed, there were ice chunks on the floor,” Wickstrom says. “We had a nice cold winter to get them frozen very hard. That’s certainly helping us now and paying off,” he said. Some of the cost may be covered by insurance, but final estimates on that won’t come until September or October. Last November, Minn-Dak projected a “conservative” $32.50 per ton for the 2017 crop, based on average quality sugar. The company made an interim payment June 1 based on $30 per ton for average quality beets. He doesn’t anticipate changing that payment from the $30 to $32.50 per ton range, even with the costs of the breakdown. Shareholder costs vary, and most growers can break even or better at $32 a ton, he said.

Two unknowns The two big unknowns are whether the beets will store for 25 to 30 days and how much and how quickly Minn-Dak’s insurance company will cover the multi-million dollar repairs. “It’s obviously a very large claim,” Wickstrom says, but the company insures other beet cooperatives and “we’re optimistic they’ll be fair.” The delayed slice campaign will mean the company’s 2018 crop harvest date will be around Sept. 18. Over the past five years, the harvest at times has started as early as late August. Typically, harvest starts from the third week in August until mid-September, depending on crop size and development. The co-op also cut back 2018 acres to 88,000 planted acres, down from 95,000 acres in 2017. That assumes 30-ton per-acre average yield that growers have achieved over the past three years. American Crystal Sugar Co., based in Moorhead, Minn., completed its slice May 23. They harvested more than 12 million tons, a record, and started processing in their five factories on Aug. 17, “It was a very good storage year,” said Brian Ingulsrud, vice president for agriculture. “We had a cooler than normal spring which really helped for good storage of the beets.” AG


Economy of SD dairy industry highlighted at Dairy Fest AgweekTV Anchor

BROOKINGS, S.D. — The dairy industry has a $2.7 billion economic impact in the state of South Dakota, and consumers saw that first hand at this year’s Dairy Fest in Brookings May 31- June 2. Tracey Erickson, a South Dakota State University Extension dairy field specialist, says the dairy industry is big business. “Each cow approximately has an impact of about $26,000, and we have 120,000 cows right now in South Dakota,” she says. Those cows produce 274 million gallons of milk annually, which results in $436 million in milk sales. Larissa Neugebauer, Dairy Fest coordinator, says when they started the event five years ago the committee’s goal was to show consumers how important the dairy industry was to their everyday lives. “They wanted to get more people involved and more people aware of the dairy industry. So many people, especially that live in the cities, don’t understand where their milk comes from,” she says. Families participated in various activities as part of the event, including tours of the SDSU Davis Dairy Processing Plant. “They could actually start at the farm, see milk unloading, come here and see how it’s made into products. Then see how it’s tested, quality control tested and then actually delivered to the store,” plant manager John Haberkorn says. Nearly 2,000 people took in the carnival at the Swiftel Center to see the dollars involved in the dairy business. Erickson says they had 14 different stations set up with fun educational activities for kids. “We have live animals, they can take a bulk tank sample, see the feed cows eat, and we have some inflatables for them to jump on, corn and soybean boxes to play in,” she says. The jobs, taxes and business the dairies create for local communities was evident on a tour of Old Tree Farms near Volga, S.D. The farm is owned by Sonja and Frido Verpallen, who came to the U.S. from the Netherlands in 2001 because they wanted to escape the quota system in that country. “The United States doesn’t have a milk quota. So, we could sell our milk quota in the Netherlands, get good money out of that and then just gain a lot of cows in a short time,” Frido says.

They were fortunate to purchase 1,200 acres near Volga and quickly grew their operation. “We started with 500 cows and added over the years,” Frido says. “We’re milking about 1,400 animals. We’ve got about 1,600 animals on the farm, plus some calves.” He says they were happy to host the tour because it’s important to share what they do on their farm. Darrel Rennich, committee chair of Dairy Fest, says the dairies in the state supply jobs, improve the local tax base and generate millions of dollars in local communities: “It really is a local business. I mean they’re all family owned … 98 percent of them in the United States are family owned businesses and they spend most of their money locally.” This includes feed, animal health products, equipment, semen and the inputs to produce their own crops and forages. The other goal of Dairy Fest was to show the public how dairy products are produced. The event helps people “just to make the connection that this is how your dairy products get to you,” Neugebauer says. She says on June 1 they also held a Fork-toFarm educational event at the Boys & Girls Club. The three-day dairy celebration kicked off the evening of May 31 with the fifth annual Got Milk Gala, which featured keynote speaker Sue McCloskey who is co-founder of Fairlife, a dairybased health and wellness company. “We use a really gentle filter system that we’re able to take milk basically kind of apart and put it back together emphasizing the components that are better for us, things like protein and calcium,” says McCloskey. The product is co-owned and distributed by The Coca Cola Company and has helped refocus the public’s perception of milk to one that brings value and nutrition to American families. She and her husband Mike also started Fair Oaks Farms, the largest agritourism attraction in the country. Their Indiana farm provides a dairy, swine and crop experience. “You’re able to go through a self-standing building that has a lot of interactive, fun exhibits where we talk about how safe, affordable, delicious and nutritious milk is; how dairy farmers take care of their cows and the environment,” McCloskey says. “You can then get on a bus and drive down the middle of one of our working dairy farms, where we milk 3,000 cows.” She says they host more than 500,000 visitors annually.

FFA on the grow in North Dakota, nation By Jonathan Knutson Agweek Staff Writer

FARGO, N.D. — Hannah Gress, Alicia Hellman and Cole Ketterling have done well in North Dakota FFA. They say the organization has provided experience and camaraderie and boosted their self-confidence. “It’s been good for me. Alicia It’s good for a lot of peoHellman ple,” says Hellman, a Harvey, N.D., native and and current North Dakota State University student. The North Dakota FFA and National FFA Organization — which serve people interested in agriculture and leadership — are doing well, too, both growing in membership. Gress, Hellman and Ketterling, who talked with Agweek June 5, are among the 1,400 FFA members attending the annual state convention of the NDSU campus. The four-day event ends June 7. The Future Farmers of America was formed in 1928 and changed its name to FFA in 1988 to reflect

the growing diversity of the agricultural industry. The group now has been known as FFA for 30 years, half as long as it went by its original name. Even after three decades, many people still mistakenly assume that the organization “is only for farmers,” says Aaron Anderson, North Dakota FFA state coordinator. “But we have members who go on be doctors and lawyers and a lot of other occupations, though we always like for them to be advocates for agriculture.” FFA’s emphasis on leadership, personal growth and career success through ag education is boosting membership both in the state and nationwide, Anderson says. North Dakota FFA has about 5,700 members in 85 chapters, a number that’s risen steadily in recent years. The National FFA Organization now has at least 662,000 members, a number that Anderson expects to rise to 665,000 later this year. The latter number would be about 15,000 more than a year earlier — reflecting FFA’s growing presence in inner-city chapters in places such as Chicago and New York. Though some other states, such as Texas, have many more FFA members than North Dakota,

those states also have much bigger populatulations. North Dakota may lead the nation, or be close to the top, in per-capita FFA membership, Anderson says. Neither Hellman nor Gress, a Mandan, N.D., native who’s attending Bismarck (N.D.) State College, grew up on a farm. But both enjoy agriculture so much that they plan to become high school ag teachers when they’re done with college. High school and adult ag teachers remain in short supply, boosting the job outlook for Hellman and Gress. The outlook for ag jobs in general also is strong, further increasing the appeal of the ag educaHannah tion that FFA provides. Gress Both Gress and Hellman have each spent five years in FFA, and they say the experience has helped them in many ways. Both have risen to state leadership positions: For the past year Hellman has served as FFA state reporter, Gress as FFA treasurer.

Ketterling, a Wishek, N.D., native and current NDSU student, has spent the past year as FFA president. He grew up on a farm that raises grain and livestock and is interested in joining the operation after college. Cole He’s also interested in Ketterling becoming an ag lender; his enthusiasm for ag finance was boosted by FFA, he says. Having an ag background is highly useful to ag bankers, especially when they’re starting out, bankers say. Ketterling, who joined FFA in seventh grade, says the organization has “given me opportunities and experience. I’ve had a great time and learned a lot.” He, Hellman and Gress strongly encourage other students to consider joining FFA if possible. “Give it a try,” Gress said. “It may take you out of your comfort zone at first, but you’ll end up benefiting.” AG

Backyard chickens bring satisfaction, challenges By Jonathan Knutson Agweek Staff Writer

I grow up on a North Dakota farm with beef cattle and small grains. No chickens, though, which was fine with me. Chickens are noisy and messy, and I wanted nothing to do with them. Still don’t, never will. But a growing number of Americans think otherwise. Although firm statistics are tough to come by, there’s an explosion of interest in “backyard” or “home-raised” chickens across our country. One small measure of that: I regularly receive emails from public relations folks promoting a new book on the subject. Home-raised chickens are so popular that assorted celebrities are publicly extolling their own backyard flocks. Some of that interest, no doubt, is sincere and long-lived. And some is trendy hipsterism designed to attract media attention, with the celebrity quickly moving on to a new fad. Regular readers of this column, all three or four of you, know that I’m no fan of trendy hipsters and posturing celebrities. Backyard chickens appeal in several ways to people who aren’t hipsters or celebrities. The list includes: ► They provide fresh eggs, and some people enjoy raising their own breakfast or other meal. ► The daily chores of caring for them can teach children about responsibility. ► They’re an alternative to mass-produced chickens and eggs, which some people think are immoral or unhealthy or both. (I’m not among those people.) ► They can save money at the grocery store, at least in theory. (Is the cost of establishing and maintaining a backyard flock less than the cost of buying chicken and eggs at the store? Yes in some cases and no in others, I’d guess. ) Whatever the benefits and satisfaction of backyard flocks, they bring challenges, too, especially in urban areas.

Raccoons and other urban predators have taken a heavy toll on some home-raised chicken operations, according to published reports. Developing city ordinances that balance the concerns of backyard flock owners with the concerns of their neighbors isn’t easy. Cities nationwide are struggling with the task. Most troubling, at least to me, are public health concerns associated with backyard flocks. As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention puts it, “Owning backyard chickens and other poultry can be a great experience. However, children and other groups of people have a greater chance of illness from handling live poultry or anything in the area where they live and roam.” Go to to read the CDC report, “Human Salmonella Infections Linked to Live Poultry in Backyard Flocks.” No, don’t write me nasty emails. I’m not saying backyard chickens are unsafe or dangerous. I’m not saying it’s wrong or foolish to have them. I’m simply stating that there are challenges, sometimes substantial, in raising them.

Selfish reason to support If you raise backyard chickens and enjoy it, good for you. If you’re thinking about starting a backyard flock, do some homework; if it works out, good for you. Though I personally have utterly no interest in raising chickens, I don’t fault folks who do. A final thought: Those of us involved in mainstream agriculture have a selfish reason to support home-raised chicken operations. Non-farmers with backyard flocks may learn that raising animals is harder — maybe much harder — than they thought. They may learn that our conventional meat production system is better — maybe much better — than they realized. AG

With barn cats, as with farming, optimism is needed On my first visit to my then-boyfriend’s farm, some of the main things I remember are cats. There were cats at the barn, and cats on the steps. Cats that followed a person around, and cats that were a bit standoffish. That was about 12 years ago. In that time, I’ve married the then-boyfriend, had two kids and moved to the farm. And the number of cats around here dwindled to nothing. It’s not that the cats weren’t cared for. With kitchen scraps, cat food and whatever mice they could catch, they were well fed. They also were well loved, with my daughter, my nieces and others providing plenty of cuddles. But no amount of food or love could prevent predators from intruding on their little kitty paradise in the barn. We suspect coyotes got some of them, after we spotted the sneaky animals in the yard on more than one occasion. Raccoons also may have played a part. In any case, the cats were gone. Two years ago, we acquired a number of barn cats from other farms — a few adults and a few kittens. We tried to put them in the barn every night to keep them safe. But, like many old barns, it’s not secure, and those little buggers would slip out as soon as we were out of sight. And soon, we were back to no cats again. Last year, we took a kitty break. We couldn’t bear to tell our little girls any more cats had disappeared. So, for 2017, we were just a dog family. But the cries for kittens wouldn’t stop. When a neighbor offered to bring us a pregnant 1-year-old cat, we decided to take a chance. We kept Patty locked up at all times for the first week, hoping that she’d get used to us by the time she had the kittens and stick around when we gave her freedom. She began to run toward us when she heard us coming, rubbing up against us and purring. She even proved her worth as a hunter, downing a lone bird that flew into the garage in a matter of minutes. But the night after we celebrated the one-week mark with Patty, she slipped out of the large, outdoor kennel we had fixed up for her. And I again had to tell two cat-loving little girls that their kitty was gone. By some stroke of luck — or because she really has come to love us already — she came back the next afternoon. She’d made friends with our dog and was hanging around the kennel, waiting to be put back in. That night, Patty gave birth to five kittens in a variety of colors. So far we’ve named an orange kitten “Sunshine,” a gray “Smokey,” and a black and white “Oreo.” Two striped kittens remain nameless until we can tell them apart. Patty’s a good mama, too, purring and cuddling her babies and keeping their little tummies full. And with that, we’re a cat family again. We’re contemplating turning an old chicken coop into a little enclosure in which we can gather cats and lock them up at night, the success of which remains to be seen. For us, I guess having barn cats is a lot like farming and ranching. There are no guarantees that it’ll work out. We keep trying, looking for new ways to make it work, knowing all the time it might not. But what is life without optimism? With any luck, this is the start of a long, successful stretch of barn cat stewardship. AG

ND ag groups discuss trade at Mexican embassy By Jenny Schlecht

“Ag is a huge part of our export markets out of North Dakota,” she says. Mertz says trade continues to be a big issue for agriculture in general. He would like to see the U.S. rejoin the Trans-Pacific Partnership and wrap up the NAFTA renegotiation. But while he and others in ag may not agree fully with Trump’s view on trade, he says many still support the president’s methods and hope it pays off in the long run.

WASHINGTON — A group of North Dakota farmers and ranchers had breakfast at the Mexican embassy on Wednesday, June 6, to further trade relationships and to ensure the Mexican ambassador that the state and the country remain committed to trade and the North American Free Trade Agreement. The meeting, organized by Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, included the following representatives from North Dakota agriculture groups: ► Steve Edwardson, executive administrator of the North Dakota Barley Council. ► Dan Wogsland, executive director of the North Dakota Grain Growers Association. ► Mark Seastrand, board member of the North Dakota Barley Council. ► Jeff Mertz, president of the North Dakota Grain Growers Association. ► Carson Klosterman, president of the North Dakota Corn Growers Association. ► Jay Doan, with the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association. ► Jim Callan, policy advisor with the North Dakota Corn Growers Association. Heitkamp says the conversations at the meeting involved the importance of the Mexican market for many North Dakota ag products. Specifically, she says they talked about North Dakota barley that goes to Mexico for Constellation Brands, which brews Corona, about the emerging market in Mexico for U.S. edible beans, about general trade concerns for wheat growers, and about the specialty cut market for U.S. beef. She calls the meeting “wildly successful.” “The ambassador laid out a pretty compelling case for why they want to continue to trade,” she says. Mertz found the Mexican ambassador, Gerónimo Gutiérrez, to be articulate and accommodating and found the morning event to be more substantive and less “smoke and mirrors” that often make up such political conversations. “He knows the importance of free trade and conveyed that to us,” he says. Mertz says the back-and-forth nature of trade makes free trade important to both countries. Barley from North Dakota and other U.S. states goes to Mexico, and Corona beer comes back, just as parts for manufacturing may flow among the three North American countries. “It’s very crucial for American farmers,” Mertz says. 8 Monday, June 11, 2018 / AGWEEK

Representatives from North Dakota ag groups had breakfast and discussed trade at the Mexican embassy in Washington, D.C., on June 6, 2018.

He says the North Dakota producers on hand at the event made their case for continuing business with Mexico, and Gutiérrez along with Mexico’s NAFTA negotiators expressed their support for continuing their agreement to ensure a constant, stable food supply for their country. The breakfast came at a time of continuing tensions over the renegotiation of NAFTA. Trump administration officials have brought up the possibility of the U.S. dealing bilaterally with Canada and Mexico, and Mexico has announced tariffs on a range of U.S. products in retaliation for tariffs on Mexican steel and aluminum that President Donald Trump announced last week. Heitkamp says when heated conversations happen behind closed doors, often the people in the negotiating rooms forget that there are people outside the walls relying on what happens within. Continuing to foster relationships with foreign markets is important. “I think any amount of goodwill we can interject into that process is a good step forward,” she says. While much of trade talks revolve around trade agreements, tariffs and trade law, Heitkamp says meeting people and talking about what our country has to offer is just as important. “At the end of the day, a big part of trade is trade relationships,” she says. Heitkamp says she’s been meeting regularly with Gutiérrez, as well as with business leaders in Mexico to reassure them of the commitment of the U.S. and North Dakota in particular to NAFTA.

“You’re not going to agree with an individual 100 percent of the time,” he says. The Wednesday meeting, Heitkamp says, was an opportunity to let producers tell the story of North Dakota agriculture and the importance of trade. “I was so proud of our North Dakota producers,” she says. “They sold North Dakota like no one can.” AG

This past week provided a stark reminder of the importance of social media and how it can be used as a tool for positivity and to build lasting relationships. More than 10 years ago, I started a blog from our rural area on the North Dakota prairie. I remember distinctly when a person who I didn’t know commented on my blog. It opened me up to the World Wide Web awareness that not only my mom, grandma, sister and a few friends were reading my little blog. The blog comment was from someone named Nancy and her blog was (and still is) The Wife of a Dairyman. She lived in a faraway land from my rural North Dakota location, all the way in … California. Nancy and I commented back and forth on one another’s blogs and built a relationship through social media, based on shared values. Fast forward a couple of years. Through my past work with AdFarm, I was working with agriculture clients in California, and Nancy came to a northern California town, Yuba City, to a training I was a part of. I distinctly remember meeting Nancy. I felt like we already were friends and jumped right into what I think is critical in all relationships, offline conversation and time together. Social media is a tool to connect us to like-minded and different thinkers than us, whatever we choose. We choose to make social media the experience what we want it to be. All of us connect on many levels and on different platforms, but my years working in digital strategy have taught me to sniff out a fake a few times. I’ve learned a social media connection is not a true friend until you’ve spent offline, in-real-life time together. Through work and blogging, Nancy and I spent in-person time together for a number of years. We went to the World Ag Expo in Tulare, Calif., together, to a couple of Blogher conferences in New York City and Chicago, and we were part of a California blogger tour together. I met her family when I stayed at their dairy farm once. My career path changed and my interactions and connections over the past five years with Nancy have been solely online and exchanging Christmas cards. Friendships can fade without in-person time but social media has the ability to keep connections that may otherwise be lost. This past week, my family and I have been traveling together for a family wedding in California. My mother-in-law’s favorite pastime is watching baseball. We attended a San Francisco Giants game for a family fun activity. Not only did Nancy, her husband and kids attend the same game, they had tickets in the row right ahead of us and drove in hours of traffic — on a school night for their kids, nonetheless — to make it happen. Far more than the outcome of the game or how tasty the two-for-one Giant hot dogs were, having Nancy and her family meet my family was rewarding to me. Nancy and I picked up right where we left off, and I was reminded how much we enjoy one another’s company. Despite differences in our lives, we have deep shared connections around our families, parenting and agriculture. Using social media for good is possible. It is up to you how you foster relationships utilizing social media or not. Real relationships and friendships are not solely rooted in the immediate people around you in the community or area you live and work. Find your people, your “tribe,” your network or community — whatever term you want to give them. They might not share your zip code, but they can have shared interests, values and provide mutual support as friends, online and offline. Seeing Nancy reminded how genuinely grateful I am for the positives of social media, for its ability to connect and build lasting real relationships and friendships. Social media is the connector for relationships, but offline time cements the friendship. AG

How social media can build real friendships that last



McMartin Sr. denies fraud in McM Inc. Chapter 7 Lawyer: Allegations confused by same names By Mikkel Pates

Agweek Staff Writer

FARGO, N.D. — The father of bankrupt megafarmer Ron McMartin Jr. denies a bankruptcy trustee’s allegation that he participated in “sham’ insider transactions of his son’s McM Inc. farm. McMartin Sr., is the father of Ron McMartin Jr., who was chief executive officer of McM Inc., a farm at St. Thomas, N.D., that grew to 50,000 acres and raised high-value crops including sugar beets, potatoes, edible beans, corn and soybeans. McM Inc. filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation on Feb. 10, 2017, leaving some $62 million in creditor claims, including $43 million to BMO Harris Bank. The bankruptcy trustee has alleged links between McM Inc. to McMartin Jr.’s parents — McMartin Sr. and his wife, Bonita. In the complaint, the trustee names the McMartin Sr.

couple as defendants as well as several entities including Ronald G. McMartin Farms and “Ronald and Bonnie McMartin Joint Venture,” as well as the couple’s individual capacities and trustee capacities of Ronald G. McMartin Sr., and the Bonita A. McMartin Revocable Trust, and the Ronald G. McMartin Sr. Irrevocable Trust. (Separately, there is a case with the Island Lake Irrevocable Trust, which involved a Detroit Lakes-area lake home that was transferred from McM Inc. for the benefit of McMartin Jr.’s daughters.) In the McMartin Sr. response, filed May 14, his lawyer Theodore T. Sandberg, of Grand Forks, N.D., answered a complaint filed May 3 by Erik A. Ahlgren, trustee in the McM Inc. bankruptcy case. In his denial, McMartin Sr. said he wants the judge to throw out the complaint. Among other things, Sandberg questioned Ahlgren’s assertions that parents and entities are actually “insiders” as alleged by Ahlgren. They admit that “trusts were created” but couldn’t respond to times or contents of

those events. They also couldn’t “respond to the allegation” that McMartin (Jr.) had “unfettered access” to their accounts through power of attorney. Even though Ahlgren had separately identified McMartin Sr. and McMartin Jr. in the complaint, Sandberg claimed that the references in the lawsuit were confusing because both McMartins have the same name. (Sandberg said there was a “probability” in some allegations that Ahlgren was referring to McMartin Jr., not McMartin Sr.)

General denial Sandberg claimed “insufficient knowledge, understanding, and/or background” on various allegations involving “farm transfers” of custom harvesting and other devices toward the parents as a way to indirectly benefit McMartin Jr. McMartin Sr. neither admitted nor denied some allegations, saying they were “unable to provide any sort of response” on the “choices, reasons, attitudes, and intentions of other parties (notably the aforementioned nebulously named McMartin

— whom we are to presume it is guessed to be Ron McMartin Jr.).” McMartin Sr. said he couldn’t know McMartin Jr.’s “purposes, intentions, choices, rationale, needs.” McMartin Sr. denied information diverting $318,000 value on transfers of vehicles, farm equipment and a list of checks starting Sept. 23, 2015, to May 3, 2016. Ahlgren had asked the judge to declare some of the transfers “voidable,” meaning the money could come back to the bankruptcy estate. He also alleged constructive fraud, meaning that there was a transfer for less than reasonably equivalent value at a time when McMartin Jr. was insolvent. Without denying everything, Sandberg also responded that some of the remedies are “overlapping and duplicative.” In one response, he said the “bankruptcy estate” itself might be obligated to indemnify McMartin Sr. for damages awarded to the plaintiff — which would also be the bankruptcy estate. Some allegations also might be covered by a statute of limitations, McMartin Sr.’s lawyer wrote. AG

Barley near Mooreton, N.D., could use a drink


Skovholts shifted from six- to two-row malt type By Mikkel Pates Agweek Staff Writer

MOORETON, N.D. — Jeff Skovholt’s barley could use a good drink. “Our rain has been minimal, so we could use a good 1- to 2-inch soak,” says Skovolt, who farms with brother, Korey, near Mooreton, N.D. When it gets warm, the farm could use a good inch each week. The bustling headquarters of J&K Grain Farms stands to the west of Interstate 29 at the Wahpeton/Mooreton exit — perhaps one of the most visible farms in the state. The Skovholts and their crew raise barley, mostly for a rotation

crop for sugar beets, and have set themselves up for handling corn and soybeans. Sugar beet acres are down a bit, but everything else is on the same rotation basis. “The barley looks pretty good,” Jeff says, sparing a moment for an interview during a busy spraying season. “We got it in a hair late, but it went in good.” They got into barley a few years back in contracts with Busch Agricultural Resources in West Fargo. This year they’re trying the tworow barleys that are popular with an expanding microbrew industry but also serve as a good rotation crop for the beets. “This is the first year for the two-row. We’ve (historically) done the traditional six-row, but the demand for the two-row has gotten greater,” Jeff said. “We swapped over to that and the contracts Skovholt are better.” In the past three years the Skovholts have had good barley crops, with 90-plus bushels per acre and good quality.

“It’s all made malting,” he said. “We’re hoping the same for this style barley. They have their weed and fungicide program in place to help make the grade. “We do all of the little things to make sure it stays of the quality of the malting,” Jeff said. The family raised some wheat last year, because they couldn’t get the full barley contract to cover their acres. “We rotated a little wheat in, but the barley seems like it is a more profitable crop.” AG

Sheep finding new role in 21st century By Jonathan Knutson Agweek Staff Writer

BROCKET, N.D. — The early summer afternoon is warm and windy, though not oppressively so, and contented “baas” ring out in the sheep barn. Luke Lillehaugen looks over the flock with an experienced eye and says, “Well, we like sheep. And we like some of the things happening in the sheep industry.” Lillehaugen and his father, Maynard Lillehaugen, operate Lillehaugen Farms near Brocket, N.D. They raise small grains, cattle and sheep; about 180 sheep lambed this spring.

As Luke alludes to, the U.S. sheep industry, which had been declining for decades, is on the upswing, reflecting major and seemingly permanent demographic changes. The growing willingness of many Americans to try new and different foods also bodes well for sheep producers. Though it’s unlikely the glory days of the mid 1940s will ever be fully regained — U.S. sheep numbers now stand at 5.2 million, down from the 1945 peak of 56 million — the Lillehaugens are optimistic the millenia-old sheep industry still has a modern-day role, albeit a more modest one. Once, sheep were in demand for both their wool and meat, with meat seen primarily as a

byproduct of the wool. But the growing popularity of synthetic fibers cut sharply into wool demand, causing the industry’s emphasis to switch from wool production to meat production, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service. Producing high-end wool still can be profitable, though wool of lower quality typically is not, says Travis Hoffman, North Dakota State University Extension sheep specialist. His advice to sheep producers: Identify whether focusing on meat or wool or a combination can be most profitable to your operation, then manage accordingly. The Lillehaugens have done that. They raise Katahdin sheep, a breed of hair sheep — named after Mount Katahdin, the highest peak in Maine — that sheds wool naturally over time without shearing. So the Lillehaugens receive no payment or compensation for the wool, which they don’t even collect. “It keeps getting harder to find people to shear, and the value of the wool (that the Lillehaugens would receive from wool) just isn’t worth the expense and effort of shearing,” Luke says. The Lillehaugens rely entirely on sales of their sheep for both slaughter and breeding stock. It speaks well for their operation that they’ve sold breeding stock to sheep producers in a number of states, including Texas, the nation’s leading sheep producer. “We’re pretty particular (about the quality of breeding stock sold). If we wouldn’t keep it here on our own farm, we won’t sell it as breeding stock,” Luke says. The Lillehaugen family has raised sheep on and off since 1895. Sheep prices, as well as labor and pasture availability, have influenced whether they’re in or out out of sheep. Both Luke and Maynard enjoy working with sheep, and are especially pleased with Katahdin. Luke become familiar with the breed when he was working at the NDSU Sheep Unit in Fargo, and the Lillehaugens brought them on the farm in 2005. Katahdin sheep are relatively easy to keep in pastures with electric wire and also require less feed than wool sheep, says Luke, who returned to the farm in 2007.

Growing the flock In 2011 the American Sheep Industry Association launched its Let’s Grow campaign to grow the long-declining U.S. sheep industry and keep it competitive globally. The campaign focused initially on boosting sheep numbers by increasing herd size and the average birth rate per ewe. Sheep usually, but not always, have multiple births. Now, the campaign focuses on helping sheep producers become more sustainable, in part through becoming more efficient. One example: This spring, the program funded a workshop at North Dakota State University to help sheep producers win a premium for their lamb crop. More information on Let’s Grow, go to Other benefits of the breed include being less prone to parasites, being relatively docile and easy to handle and possessing strong maternal instincts, Maynard says. Sheep often, though not always, have multiple births. Twins are most common, though triplets aren’t unusual. The sheep industry, stressing the need for greater efficiency, has pushed for higher lambing rates — or having more live multiples. That’s happened at Lillehaugen Farms, which typically averages about 1.9 lambs per ewe. Maynard estimates the farms’ rate was about 1.4 to 1.6 lambs per ewe in the 1960s.

A long decline Declining demand for wool and greater competition from other meats, especially chicken, have hurt the U.S. sheep industry for decades. Wool production, in particular, took a hit in 1995, when longstanding federal payments to U.S. wool producers, funded by tariffs on imported wool and wool textile products, were eliminated. Weakening consumer demand for lamb meat also has worked against sheep producers. Once, lamb and mutton were an important part of some

Americans’ diet. In 1945 Americans ate 7.3 pounds of lamb and mutton. As Luke and Maynard point out, lamb and mutton are quite different. Lamb meat comes from sheep less than a year old and that typically are slaughtered between the ages of 4 and 12 months. Meat from older sheep is called mutton; it is tougher meat and has a much stronger flavor than lamb meat. Today, mutton is sold primarily in speciality shops. Blame World War II, at least in part, for declining popularity of lamb and mutton. Americans who served in Europe during the war were fed canned mutton, which they disliked because of its strong musky flavor. Returning home after the war, many of the soldiers eliminated lamb meat from their dinner tables. One result was that their children rarely, if ever, were exposed to lamb meat.

State sheep leaders The United States had 5.23 million sheep at the beginning of 2018. Texas had the most (750,000), with California second (570,000) and Colorado third (445,000).

“The big problem was the military feeding mutton to the soldiers and trying to pass it off as lamb. That turned off a lot of people from eating lamb,” Luke says. Maynard is no fan of mutton. “I wouldn’t butcher a 10-year-old cow to eat, and I wouldn’t butcher a 10-year-old ewe (female sheep) to eat,” he says. In any case, American lamb and mutton consumption fell steadily to 1.4 pounds per capita in 1990 and then to 0.85 pounds per capita in 2011. But the rebound that began in 2012 pushed 2017 per-capita consumption to 1.1 pounds. Luke notes that lamb meat is popular with some religious and ethnic groups, whose numbers are rising in the United States. And sheep industry advocates say more Americans are interested in eating new and different foods, with lamb one of the candidates. A 2011 State totals for the Upper Midwest: South Dakota — Sixth with 260,000. Montana — Eighth with 225,000. Minnesota — 11th with 130,000. North Dakota — 21st with 70,000.

study by the American Lamb Board found that one in two Americans had never tried lamb. “Demand is growing. I don’t think it’s going to grow very fast, but it’s growing,” Maynard says.

Challenges remain But major challenges remain for the sheep industry, despite the recent rebound. As sheep numbers dropped, the industry infrastructure weakened: there are fewer sales barns handling sheep, less public research funds for sheep, less medicine labeled for sheep and fewer veterinarians knowledgeable about sheep, among other things. “It’s pretty simple. There are fewer sheep, and that affects these other things,” Luke says. Lillehaugen Farms sells its slaughter lambs and sheep at Central Livestock in West Fargo, N.D., about 140 miles to the south and east. It also sells a few to neighbors. He and Maynard stress they’re fortunate to have the services of Charlotte Klose, with Dakota Animal Care in Edinburg, N.D.

“We’re lucky. She’s a very good sheep vet who even has her own flock of sheep,” Luke says. The Lillehaugens, like others in the sheep industry, hope the infrastructure will strengthen as sheep numbers stabilize and even begin to rise. Maynard and Luke don’t think their own sheep operation will grow much. Their pastures and barn already are stretched pretty tight, they say. They’re cautiously optimistic about turning a profit this year, assuming current lamb prices don’t fall much. And they think there’s opportunity for new sheep producers. Luke’s suggestion to people interested in raising sheep: “Buy from a reputable producer.” Maynard’s advice: “Start out with a few. Don’t start with 100. See if you like it first.” The Lillehaugens, for their part, enjoy carrying on the family tradition, especially with rising consumer demand for lamb. “More people are eating what we raise. We sure like that,” Luke says. AG Monday, June 11, 2018 / AGWEEK

Camper to glamper: A recipe for renovation By Cristen Clark

Special to Agweek

As a self-proclaimed “DIY Dummy,” my husband nearly fell on the ground when I told him I was going to practice my pathetic Pinterest-ing skills on the 2004 Forest River Cherokee fifth wheel camper we purchased from some good friends. After reading Katie Pinke’s recent column about slowing down for summer, I’m sure glad I did. My kids are at the perfect age to spend some time with no distractions. As most of you know, leaving livestock is next to impossible without harnessing help from near and far. It’s especially difficult when the reasons for leaving are firing up s’mores and committing yourself to being mosquito bait for the weekend! I’m only somewhat kidding on that last statement. “Why would you gut and redo a nice camper?” The camper was quite nice when we bought it, despite the décor being typical to most campers of its era. As a friend of mine said, it looks “like Paul Bunyan’s grandmother decorated it.” I didn’t mind the forest green and lavender tapestries much because everything was so clean! Once we got it home I second guessed my decision to renovate it and didn’t quite start right away, because it was in great condition and I Cristen Clark lives on knew it was going to be a load of work to do what I wanted to with it. I guess I inherited an Iowa farm where her family raises corn, the “all or nothing gene” from my dad. soybeans, pigs and The only thing I considered a must-do was removing the carpet flooring so I had a cattle. She loves cooking surface I could sanitize after this camper goes to pig shows so we don’t drag germs and writing, and sharing contest winning recipes home to the farm. I guess all the add-ons came as a result of “well, what if I did this?” with people she knows. and so on. Imagine the absolute glee on my husband’s face when I had a new idea, like She can be reached at when I told him I was going to repaint the whole unit, including the cabinets?

it drove me further, faster to finish until I wanted to hook up to it and drive it off a cliff. The thing that kept me most sane in this whole process was the fact that we’d get to enjoy this camper as a family. Some of my fondest memories are of camping at the Iowa State Fair with my family. Granted, the waiting list to get into the Iowa State Fair Campgrounds is 15-20 years. I’d better get on that. I’ve poured quite a few hours into making this renovation happen. I worked inside this camper on all of the rainy days off during harvest last year until we buttoned it up from December to mid-February. Then I hopped back inside to finish up this spring. I learned a few things about myself and about DIY in this experience. The bad: I am not a DIY expert. I do not own all the tools. I do not have all the skills. I found the easy fixes on my own for the most part, bought supplies I could easily work with and divided the renovation up into many parts so it could be flexible with my schedule. I threw tools. I said lots and lots of bad words and stomped around like a little whiny toddler out of frustration. I got lots of blisters, cuts and bruises. There were a few days I hated it because I couldn’t figure something out but had to push my focus on the future and the potential of lasting memories to share with my family. The good: I learned how to use new and different (to me) power tools. I got to spend a lot of fun days with my friend Melissa, a fellow corn and soybean farmer and superhandy DIY expert. I was able to find jobs for my kids to do, teaching them new skills and giving them a sense of ownership when this whole experience was over. I got to decorate the space with lots of pig décor, which I love. This past weekend we had our first family camping outing and made incredible memories. Yes, it was all worth it. Would I do it again? Sure thing. AG

Palmer amaranth: Dangerous and coming our way

Palmer amaranth has a growth rate of two to three inches per day, and can reach heights of six to eight feet. (AgweekTV)

Matt Danuser of Galchutt Seed in Wahpeton, N.D., has 23 years of crop consulting experience, and this weed certainly caught his attention. “We’re already battling a few resistant weeds up here like waterhemp, tall waterhemp, and coatia, and common

How to identify Palmer amaranth: • •

Palmer amaranth — voted the most troublesome weed in the U.S. by the Weed Science Society of America — has a unique combination of characteristics that make it particularly dangerous.

ragweed. But this weed supersedes all of them, so we do not want this weed in our fields,” Danuser says. Even weed scientists familiar with Palmer amaranth can struggle with identification, especially when the plant is small. Early identification is important, and farmers who think the weed may be present in a field should immediately contact an extension weed specialist, officials say. Danuser says if you see a weed that may fit the profile for Palmer amaranth, pull it out and burn it — don’t just leave it in the field. And as cover crops become more common, be sure to get your seed from a reputable source so it’s not contaminated with weeds.


This week’s Soy Insight sheds light on an invasive weed making its way north. Palmer amaranth is native to the southwest United States but is now spreading across the country. This annual broadleaf weed has a growth rate of two to three inches per day and can reach heights of 6 to 8 feet. It also has a long germination period and looks similar to other pigweeds such as redroot, waterhemp and smooth pigweeds.

• It’s a prolific seed producer, with a single plant producing as many as 1 million seeds. • The seeds are extremely small, making them relatively easy for farmers to spread unintentionally. • Seeds can lie dormant in the soil for years, waiting to germinate until growing conditions are favorable. • The seeds are unusually competitive with most crops,

including corn and soybeans. • It can grow as much as 3 inches per day — and the bigger it is, the harder it is to control. • Because it closely resembles pigweed and waterhemp, especially when small, farmers may misidentify it and take inadequate steps to control it. • It’s prone to developing herbicide resistance.

Is a cereal rye cover crop enough? By Abbey Wick

NDSU Extension Soil Health Specialist

I am often asked this question: “Is using only cereal rye as a cover crop enough or do I need more diversity?” My answer is, “It depends on what you are trying to do with that cover crop.” One goal of using cover crops is to build diversity in the cropping system, but there are plenty of other goals associated with using cover crops, such as reducing erosion or managing moisture or weeds to name a few. The most important step in using cover crops successfully is to determine what your goal is. You can then pick cover crops around those goals and also crops in rotation. If the goal is to build diversity in a cropping system, then adding more species could be beneficial. I always fall back on the “five food group” concept that Lee Briese (Independent Crop Consultant with Centrol Ag) developed because it makes using cover crops doable, economical and somewhat more universal across systems. Under this concept, you need a cool season grass, cool season broadleaf, warm season grass, warm season broadleaf and a legume within a couple of years of your rotation. In corn-soybean, add cereal rye (a cool season grass) by interseeding corn to achieve four of the five “food groups.” If radish (a cool season broadleaf) is interseeded with the rye, then all five groups are covered. If your goal is diversity, is this approach as good as including several species in a cover crop mix every year? I don’t know, but it is reasonable, economical and applicable. For erosion control or moisture management, the timing of seeding and terminating a cover crop are more important than the number of species in the mix. In this case, seeding cereal rye into a standing crop provides more growth in the fall for better erosion control over-winter. If cereal rye is seeded too late in the fall, desired erosion control in the winter may not be achieved. As a result of having more growth on rye in the fall, it could use more moisture in spring. But don’t let the cover crop use too much moisture in the spring — terminate cereal rye when the soil is just about perfect to plant a cash crop (typically soybean). To hedge your bets on moisture usage, cereal rye can be seeded at a variable rate in the fall. Lower rates on sandier soils (example: 10 pounds per acre) that are more droughty and higher rates on higher clay soils (example: 60 pounds per acre) that hold more water. This provides a little more flexibility and still achieves the intended goals of erosion control and moisture management. For weed management, cereal rye is also a great choice because of timing, cost and plant characteristics. It will compete with weeds by growing in the fall and then again in spring. Cereal rye is cheap and it breaks up other expensive modes of action

for weed management. It also has an allelopathic effect, which is a chemical released from the roots, that stunts weed growth. You don’t necessarily need diversity to achieve the goal of weed management. The big picture: there isn’t a perfect approach for using cover crops. Do what works for your farming operation and comfort level. My point is, do not get discouraged or feel like you’re not fully achieving soil health by having one species in your cover crop mix. If that’s what helps you achieve your goals, then I say go with it. AG

Navigating the legal issues surrounding UAVs

By Peter Welte I have seen more unmanned aerial vehicles in the past two months than I saw in the previous two years. Maybe this is coincidence, but I don’t think so. The issue of UAVs — also known as drones — is fascinating. The consideration of legal issues pertaining to drones is equally fascinating. Drones have utility in agriculture; in fact they can be used in several ways in a farming operation. First of all, drones permit farmers to get a visual view of their fields from vantage points that were not previously accessible. An overhead view of a field during the growing season can assist farmers in planning drainage activity for the fall and can also assist them in determining fertility needs moving forward. Finally, if there is spray drift — a hot topic with dicamba for the past two years — the view from a drone can assist in determining both the amount of drift damage and the severity of such damage. The possibilities for drones go on and on. For example, livestock farmers can use drones to assist in location of livestock and also to assess the health of a herd. And the ability to locate predators and their origin is also greatly enhanced with the use of an unmanned aerial vehicle. But as with any technological advancement, there are questions. And with drones, the legal questions far exceed the answers at the present time. There are two very broad categories of legal issues pertaining to drones. The first category has to do with constitutional issues pertaining to drones. The second category simply has to do with regulation of drones. Constitutional issues pertaining to drones revolve around (1) the right to privacy and (2) illegal search and seizure. That is, how much privacy are we, as citizens, entitled to? In the old days, we could pull the shades or shut the fence around our property, and we would know that we were safe from view. However, with the advent

of UAVs, we don’t know who sees what is going on inside our property. Are we entitled to privacy at all? The answer is yes, you are entitled to freedom from government interference in the quiet use and enjoyment of your property, but only to a certain extent. The level of that extent is still developing in the eyes of the law. With regard to illegal search and seizure, this is very interesting to me. For example, if you have illegal contraband on your property, it used to be that the government couldn’t enter your property without a warrant or if the illegal contraband was “in plain sight.” Well, does the “in plain sight” doctrine extend to illegal contraband that is in plain sight from 1,000 feet above, as viewed by a drone? How about 2,000 feet? Or 3,000 feet? What if the contraband is on your property, but you don’t know it, and a neighbor with a drone reports it to law enforcement? Again, the questions outnumber the answers. Regarding regulation of drones, the Federal Aviation Administration last year announced the UAS Integration Pilot Program, which the FAA calls “an opportunity for state, local and tribal governments to partner with ‘the private sector’ to accelerate safe UAS integration.” UAS stands for Unmanned Aircraft System and generally represents the UAV, the ground-based controller and the system of communications connecting the two. The FAA says they have four objectives for the IPP. First, the FAA desires safe integration of UAS into the National Airspace System by testing and validating new “beyond visual line of sight” operations and their technologies. Second, they want the UAS security and safety risks muted by better communications between operators and regulatory officials. Third, the FAA seeks to promote innovation to serve public benefit. Finally, they seek to identify models to balance local and national interests regarding UAS integration. Seem like a mouthful? It is. But it is a huge legal field, and it promises to get more interesting! AG

Northeast SD farmers race to seed soybeans

Alfalfa, pastures look better than the past 2 years By Mikkel Pates

Agweek Staff Writer

RAYMOND, S.D. — Gale Filipek, Raymond, S.D., was seeding soybeans on the Francis Hass farm on June 1, dodging 1.5-acre muddy spots while fields only three miles away were too dry. “We’re pushing hard as we can to get it done,” Filpek, 70, said. Seed was going in 1.5 to 2 inches deep because fields are dry, other than the mud holes. “Hopefully we get a shower of rain tonight.” Filipek Hass, reached by phone on June 4, said seeding was likely to be finished by June 9. Much of the farm picked up a tenth of an inch of rain on June 1. Hass, 69, is a Clark County commissioner and sits on the Redfield Energy LLC board of manag-

ers. When he isn’t doing that, he’s raising wheat, corn, soybeans and alfalfa on about 4,500 acres, which is about a third of what he farmed at his peak five years ago. Hass has been farming full time since he was a junior in high school. His father died when Hass was 12, so an uncle took over. When the uncle died, he and his mother, Alma, took over the farm when he was 16. “I give her all the credit, really. She could have sold it,” he says. Hass says he’s been cutting back some. He has three part-time employees, including Filipek, who’s been with him for 20 years. The area got plenty of rain last fall. Hass crews had to harvest corn around some water holes in the fields. The Hasses and others in the region went through a punishing calving season. Hass’ calves started coming in early April. They had 30 inches of snow through the process, and he figures 5 percent more calves died than average. “It was a terrible calving year,” he says. “Everybody’s about wore out, all over — especially if you’ve got livestock.” This year’s alfalfa crop looks like a bright spot, Hass said, noting in the previous two years the region’s crop was hit hard by spring freeze. “I think last year it froze twice, so all you end up with is one crop, maybe two,” he says. Even some of the pastures froze last year. This year, the alfalfa prospects look better

Forum News Service/Agweek/Mikkel Pates Many areas in northeast South Dakota could use a nice one-inch rain, but soybeans along U.S. Highway 212 in the Henry, S.D., area, looked cheery on June 1, 2018.

and the pastures look good. Hass strives to put up a year’s worth of feed, but that hasn’t been possible in the past two years. This year it might be.

“An inch (of rain) wouldn’t hurt. If it comes easy,” Hass said. “We’re going to need it to for a second cutting of alfalfa. We’re going to need it soon, but we’re doing fine right now. ” AG

Study: Ag research funding drops Decline threatens productivity gains By Jonathan Knutson Agweek Staff Writer

A new report reinforces what many agriculturalists already know: Public-sector spending on ag research in the U.S. and many other high-income countries continues to decline, challenging farmers’ ability to produce enough food to meet growing demand. Public ag research and spending development peaked in 2009 and, adjusted for inflation, fell by an average of 1.5 percent annually from 2009 to 2013, according to the report from

the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Service. The multi-year drop was the first sustained decline in more than 50 years — a period in which ag productivity nearly doubled, reflecting public-sector spending on research and development. As the report puts it, “Productivity-led agricultural growth during the latter half of the 20th century largely stemmed from investments in agricultural R&D and the application of industrial inputs in agriculture.” The report, by Paul Heisey and Keith Fuglie, measured high-income countries in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Based in Paris and founded in 1961, the organization and its 35 member coun-

tries seek to stimulate economic progress and world trade. Many high-income countries began spending less on ag research following the 20082009 global financial crisis, with the contraction particularly pronounced in the U.S. and Southern Europe/Mediterranean region, the report says. Another finding: The U.S. has become a proportionately smaller player in ag research funding. Though “the United States continues to spend the most of any high-income country on public agricultural R&D, the U.S. share of the total fell from 35 percent in 1960 to less than 25 percent by 2013,” the report says. Ag’s share of total public research funding has declined over time, as well. By 2013,

ag’s share of all public research/development spending in high-income countries was 5.2 percent, down from 9.1 percent in 1981, according to the report. Ag research helps in two ways: generating new productivity gains and maintaining current levels of productivity. The latter, so-called “maintenance research,” protects past productivity gains threatened by the emergence of new pests and crop diseases, among other challenges. “Without a steady stream of new technologies and techniques to address these challenges, agricultural productivity and output could fall,” the report says.

Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold 1.00 to 5.00 higher, with instances 6.00 to 8.00 higher this first full week after Memorial Day. Demand was reported moderate to good nationwide as more optimism was evident in the marketplace. The CME Cattle Complex has rebounded from the most recent downturn in mid-May. The June Live Cattle contract is trying to converge with the negotiated cash trade. Cash trading is pulling the futures higher and this week’s reported cash sales have been slow to materialize. Packers need to have more inventory around them soon so they can try and temper the uptick in prices. Starting the middle of March and after ten consecutive weeks of 20K or more for 15-30 delivery on fed cattle, the past couple weeks have cooled to 19K and 9.9K respectively for those cattle bought out front. Packers have managed their inventory to drive national negotiated cash trading down 14.00 in the past four weeks. In addition, packer margins have been rather large with some being reported around plus $300.00 per head recently due to boxed beef prices higher than expected and consumer demand, both domestically and internationally. Choice Boxed Beef in May did not post a price lower than 226.00 and averaged 229.70 for the month. Packers are selling as much product out front as they can at these elevated levels and are content to harvest as many as they can. Cattle harvest continues to move higher as shown by the four weeks preceding Memorial Day; total weekly cattle slaughter averaged 656.5K, over 53K more than the previous five year average. This week’s total cattle slaughter was reported at 658K, which would be 22K higher than last year. As more fed cattle move into the slaughter pipeline recently, feedyard pens will need to be refilled quickly to maximize efficiency. Many early auctions took last week off due to the Memorial Day holiday, however a last Friday auction garnered some steep prices for feeders. At Fort Pierre Livestock in Fort Pierre, SD, during their 21st Annual WLAC Anniversary Sale, two loads of reputation steers weighing 762 lbs sold at 176.00, while two loads of their similar sized brothers weighing 768 lbs sold at 175.00. A load of bigger brothers that weighed 836 lbs sold at 158.75. In addition, a load of 761 lb bangs vaccinated replacement quality heifers sold at 155.00. This week on Thursday at Ogallala Livestock Auction in Ogallala, NE, they hosted their 11th Annual Customer Appreciation BBQ Sale and buyers were in a mindset to own cattle. With a little over 6100 on offer there on Thursday, yearlings were in demand as over a load of steers weighing 905 sold at 143.75 and a half load weighing 902 lbs sold at 144.00. Lack of precipitation has been a concern for many months now and the long-term effects can be devastating to subsoil moisture. As of this week, approximately 10 percent of corn and soybean production is within an area experiencing drought; winter wheat- 33 percent; hay- 19 percent and cattle- 24 percent. Auction volume this week included 52 percent weighing over 600 lbs and 41 percent heifers.

Best looking corn crop in years The weekly Crop Progress and Conditions report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture showed that the U.S. corn crop is in very good shape in the early going. Seventy eight percent of the crop is rated good or excellent, and just three percent falls in the poor or very poor condition category. The impact of this (along with improved precipitation expectations and lower temperatures in the forecast) are being witnessed in the market. Prices have fallen 35 cents on the December futures contract from the high in late May. But does it matter? Of course, a more highly rated crop tends to see a better yield, but the correlation is not a strong one. Weather during the key pollination window in July is often a better determining factor for eventual yield. Early good ratings can quickly give way to a poor crop if the weather does not cooperate during the hotter summer months.

Wheat Kansas and Chicago wheat prices continue to make a volatile climb higher. The Minneapolis market has been resisting any push higher as

last year’s premium over the other wheat classes is simply being whittled away. The forces pushing Kansas City and Chicago higher began with drought conditions in the U.S. Plains. Many areas remain dry, but some improvements have taken place. More recently, weather concerns in the Black Sea region are lending support. These factors have provided a generally strengthening market, but the dayto-day moves are large and include plenty of drops, as well. Canada’s crops got in the ground, and though dry and hot weather were the story for the spring, improvements promise to aid the early summer’s development.

Durum The durum market remains depressed as

strong supplies of old crop are keeping a lid on prices. The U.S. Department of Agriculture showed 66 percent of the crop rated good or excellent and just two percent rated poor.

Canola Canola prices have fallen this week, trading in sympathy with the U.S. soybean oil market. For the bears, weather has improved in Canada. The increased rainfall helped ease fears of a crop shortfall. Additionally, soybean oil markets have been on the defensive. Finally, fears of trade disruptions between the U.S. and Canada make for potentially reduced demand. But all is not pointing to lower prices. The Canadian dollar was weaker this week, limiting major downside. Also, Strategie Grains reduced their expectations for European rapeseed output.

Peas and lentils Pulse plantings have basically been completed in the U.S. and Canada. Dry and hot conditions allowed farmers to get their crops in the ground. Recent rains provided some relief for the short soil moisture, and temperatures are expected to drop to normal in the weeks ahead.


Mustard seed markets are making the transition to new crop fundamental drivers. Planting is nearly complete in Canada, with Saskatchewan reporting 92 percent completion compared to the average pace of 71 percent. This rapid planting has been allowed by dry conditions — a blessing in the short term for farmers but a concern for overall crop development. However, recent rainfall in many areas and a drop to more normal temperatures have alleviated fears of crop production shortfalls.

Barley The barley crop in the U.S. is planted (technically at 97 percent completion). Much of the crop has emerged, and it is in very good shape. The weekly Crop Progress and Conditions report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture showed 79 percent of the crop rated good/ excellent. This is a huge improvement from the previous week’s 69 percent and in line with last year’s crop.


Favorable growing conditions affect markets Wheat


The wheat market experienced very choppy trade this past week with Kansas City contracts taking a 20 cent hit in June 4 trade. All contracts recovered for the week but would typically open strong daily only to fade and close near the lower end of the daily trading ranges. The first spring wheat condition ratings for 2018 have 70 percent of the crop rated good to excellent, 26 percent fair and only 4 percent poor to very poor. Spring wheat emergence is at 81 percent, compared to 82 percent for the five-year average. Winter wheat condition ratings declined 1 percent to 37 percent good to excellent, 28 percent fair and 35 percent poor to very poor. Eighty three percent of the crop is headed, which is right at the five-year average. Harvest has started in the southern plains, with 5 percent of the winter wheat crop harvested compared to 4 percent average. The U.S. dollar was roughly 70 cents lower on the week and the Russian Ruble has been rangebound since April 11. The big problem, though, is that Black Sea Region wheat prices are still $30 to $40 per metric ton cheaper than U.S. ports based on currency exchange. So the U.S. dollar’s recent run up since April 17 is having negative consequences on export activity. Combines will be telling the story in the next few weeks in Kansas. Yields may not be as good as some early initial reports out of Oklahoma. Abandonment acres will also be a big question. We will see if next Tuesday’s U.S. Department of AGriculture report alludes to that or not. Overall, though, it appears that poor export numbers will be increasing ending U.S. stocks. Private analysts are estimating 15 percent of the Russian winter wheat belt in extreme dry conditions and about 30 percent deficient on moisture. There are current estimates for around a 5 percent below normal crop. The Russian northern spring wheat belt has received about twice the normal amount of rainfall, which points to a 2-5 percent decrease in yields from normal in early estimates. These early estimates point to around a 68-70 million metric ton crop versus the record 85 million metric ton crop last year. China National Grain and Oils Information Center estimates Chinese wheat production at 126.7 million metric tons, the lowest in four years. Weekly export sales for all wheat totaled 9 million bushels with a 700,000 bushel cancellation for the 2017-18 marketing year. This puts total marketing year sales at 872 million bushels, 16 percent below the previous marketing year. For the week ending June 7, July contracts for Minneapolis wheat were down 6.5 cents at $5.975, up 3.5 cents at $5.2675 for Chicago wheat and up 3.75 cents at $5.445 for Kansas City wheat.

180 bushel per acre crop is already guaranteed as we are just starting the June month. It is amazing how the six-to-10-day and eight-to14-day forecasts can change so fast and affect these markets. At the beginning of the week the extended forecast models showed hot and dry the next two weeks across the majority of the Midwest. On Wednesday it switched to showing mostly normal to below normal temperatures with an above average chances for moisture. The trade puts a lot of stock in these extended forecasts this time of year, even though forecasts that far out have conflicting weather models. If this forecast holds true though, it is negative the markets as this crop continues to look really good and it would be without many threats in the near future. It is still early in the growing year so anything can happen, but right now this market needs adversity to push these longs to add more positions and not liquidate them instead. Corn doesn’t need a ton of rain to get off to a fast start this time of year; 90-degree days do that. What will be important is when we get to mid-June and beyond to see if we can get constant rains. Corn closed back below the support of $4.0225. The lowest moving average is the 200 day moving average, which is next support at $3.98. The trade could be searching to bring it down to major support down at $3.925 to $3.95. December corn made new contract highs on May 24 that were also seen last July at $4.295, which is new resistance. Corn crop condition ratings are at 78 percent good to excellent versus 79 percent last week. The rest of the crop is at 19 percent fair and 3 percent poor to very poor. Average trade estimates were for 79 percent good to excellent ratings. These early crop conditions show that there is the potential for high yields in corn if we get the rainfall this year. Corn planting progress as of June 3 showed corn was 97 percent planted versus 95 percent last year and 95 percent for the five-year average. Last week, U.S. farmers were 92 percent planted. This was right at trade estimates. As of June 3, corn was 86 percent emerged versus 84 percent last year and 83 percent for the five-year average. For the week ending June 7, July corn was down 15.25 cents and December corn was 15 cents lower.



After making new highs a couple weeks ago, corn has turned negative, and selling pressure has pushed December corn back below the $4 mark to begin the month of June. Corn futures traded to higher highs and lower lows than the previous trading day on June 7, a technical reversal. Corn futures are trading back to lows last seen on April 4, the day China first announced retaliatory tariffs against the US. The trade seems to be acting like summer is over already and a

Soybeans continue their downward slide and have seen a dip of 65 cents the last eight trading sessions. There continues to be a lack of news from the U.S./China trade talks, and no news is not good news when it comes to these trade negotiations. Pressure also continues to come from a lack of progress in trade negotiation talks with our other biggest trading partners. Export sales this week were very disappointing, a casualty from the ongoing tariff threats. The monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report

on June 12 could show lower export numbers ending stocks in this report due to these trade issues. This year’s U.S. crop has gotten off to a great start, and it seems the trade is saying that it needs some solid news that we are not going to see another record crop this fall. There is a lot of summer left for the weather patterns to change, but for now the weather is cooperating after a late start to the spring. The extended forecast is now showing below normal temperatures and above normal chances of precipitation in the eight-to-14-day forecast across the Midwest. This comes after just two days after it showed extreme heat and no moisture in this same outlook report on June 4. If that weather pattern transpires, it will continue to support crop development. The funds and analysts trade these extended weather reports, so it could make for a very volatile and interesting summer. The funds need a reason to add to their heavy net long positions. For the first soybean crop condition ratings of the year on June 4, soybeans were at 75 percent good to excellent, 21 percent fair and 4 percent poor to very poor. Average trade estimates were for 74 percent good to excellent ratings. Soybean plantings were well ahead of pace, and as of June 3, soybeans were 87 percent planted versus 81 percent last year and 75 percent for the five-year average. Estimates were for close to 90 percent to be planted. As of May 24, soybeans were 68 percent emerged versus 55 percent last year and 52 percent for the five-year average. Old crop soybean futures dipped below $10 for the first time since May 18. Support for November soybeans at $10.10 and then the 200day moving average at $10.07. November soybean resistance is still the April 2 high of $10.60, and if we break that it is the Jan. 16 high of $10.80. For the week ending June 7, July soybeans were down 47 cents and November soybeans were 43 cents lower.

Canola For the week ending June 7, November canola futures in Winnipeg were down $9.60 at $513.40 Canadian per metric ton. The Canadian dollar was down .0005 to .7707. This brings the U.S. price to $17.95 per hundredweight. ► Velva, N.D., at $18.18 per hundredweight, September at $17.07. ► Enderlin, N.D., at $19.13 per hundredweight, September at $17.66. ► Hallock, Minn., at $18.37 per hundredweight, September at $17.29. ► Fargo, N.D., at $19.20 per hundredweight, September at $17.85.
