    How to Source Farm Interns

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published May 12, 2018

    The Keenans were up to their elbows in infrastructure projects, animal husbandry, and a burgeoning farmstay business, and needed help in a bad way. Balancing a post and beam, lime plaster home construction project against caretaking goats and chickens, while juggling four human kids to boot, left the Keenans with little time for their personal lives. So, the family turned to the outside world for help. As a recent college grad excited about farming, I responded to their advertisement, and soon found my way to the delightful Keenan homestead. For eight hours a day (tea breaks aside - we were in The Wirral, afterall), I helped the Keenans build their future home, steward their livestock, and even watched their children...

    Nuisance Lawsuits are Taking a Bite Out of Big Pork

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Aug 17, 2018

    In 1611, William Aldred took his neighbor to court... Pork is the #1 meat consumed throughout China, and it is in demand like never before... However, raising animals for meat is exponentially more expensive and requires a great deal more land... Also, according to Usha Haley, a business professor at West Virginia University, China wrote in their 2011 government-sanctioned business plan that they wanted to advance themselves as a country in the critically needed areas of meat production and processing... The fact that, at some point, the meat on your dinner plate was once a living, breathing, eating and pooping creature that was raised by people on a farm somewhere is not taught or respected anymore...

    The Rise of The Organic Farm Market.

    Published Jun 12, 2018

    It for centuries was known that cattle which grazed where volcanic dust had settled would become ill and lame:: The reason was their high fluoride intake... In milk samples of different cattle (cows, camels, sheep, and goats), free and bound fluoride forms and its total (free (F) + bound (Fs)) contents were measured by ion-selective electrode... The concentration of total fluoride in the milk samples of sheep, goats, cows, and camels were observed in the range of 1... The resulted data indicated that the concentration of fluoride was higher in the milk samples of smaller cattle (sheep and goat), as compared to cow and camel... The percentage values of bound fluoride in the milk samples of sheep, goats, and cows were found to be 6...

    The legendary Joel Salatin weighed in on this article with advice on how to find the perfect intern! https://agfuse.com/article/how-to-source-farm-interns

    Morning Grain Update

    Wheat surge overnight driven by report that Russian Ag Minister at meeting with grain exporters to discuss “curbing grain exports once 30 mmt threshold hit”. Ag Ministry (whose wheat export estimate is 35 mmt) says there is no consideration to limiting wheat exports and that the meeting only discussed “operational volumes” on grain exports. Reps from regions producing meats brought up the issue of curbing grain exports. Recall Russia limited wheat exports on short supply 6 years ago. USDA says 2018/19 Russia wheat exports will be 35 mmt vs. 42 mt LY and 28 mmt prior year.

    Soy back and fills following near 28 cent SX rally yesterday. Upcoming low level US/PRC trade talks next Wed/Thur will determine if enough give on both sides to schedule higher level negotiations in coming weeks. Our DC sources believe US/PRC trade issues unlikely to be resolved quickly.

    Weather leans negative with 20-25% of dry Midwest areas shrinking to 15% by next Friday. 5 day Midwest pricp coverage 70% will benefit C, E and S growing areas. Midwest temps next week not as cool as yesterday’s forecast. E Australia still dry.

    CWG review of weather models concluded that European model (this summer) has scored greater accuracy in predicting Midwest moisture than the GFS although both have under-estimated summer rainfall across C Plains states.

    After 4 days of trade—CZ up 8 cents, SX up 35.25 cents, WU down 4.5 cents and KWU daon 12.25 cents. CFTC report out after close expected to show managed funds have added to shorts in beans, corn and oil while cutting longs in wheat and meal.

    Look for crop ratings Monday stable to lower vs. prior week’s 70% G/Ei n corn (-1% vs. prior week) and 66% in beans (-1% vs. prior week). Remember that crop ratings late summer typically decline.

    Noteworthy that wheat (including Matif) holding overnight gains despite Russian Ag Minister assurances that wheat export curbs are not being considered. Nonetheless, trade justifiably fearful that Russian Ag officials will protect domestic feed supplies if push comes to shove. Trade chatter that Russia may elect to cap wheat exports at 25 mmt vs. USDA forecast for 35 mmt and record 42 mmt last year. Suspect managed funds given Russian uncertainty and chart action will maintain longs—especially against backdrop of ongoing drought in E Australia and dry finish to Canadian growing season.

    US finishing weather looks more beneficial than harmful. Pro Farmer tour next week unlikely to affirm record corn and near record soy yield although trade well aware of their tendency to underestimate crop. Soy bulls hoping that US/PRC trade talks next week set stage for further talks while soy bears count on stalemate resuming. Outcome impossible to call but we would caution against becoming overly optimistic given recent rhetoric out of Beijing.

    "Value-added agriculture entails changing a raw agricultural product into something new through packaging, processing, cooling, drying, extracting or any other type of process that differentiates the product from the original raw commodity" - while this statement is technically correct, it leaves out a critical component! Value-added has to be more than simply changing the form of the product - it must actually ADD VALUE as well. In my own ranching business, and in looking at the businesses of others who have considered value-added products, this part of the equation is often missed.

    From an economic analysis stand point, I feel like the value-added business must buy the raw product from the farming business (at least on paper) to determine if value-added makes sense. In other words, as the article correctly outlines, does spending all of the extra expense involved in changing my lambs from livestock to packaged meat actually increase my overall profitability? In our business, we've learned that if we can't raise live lambs profitably, no amount of "value-added" will change this.
