With few exceptions, theassessed valuations on agriculturalland have climbed rapidly forseveral years a clear reflection ofthe fact that in Nebraska,agricultural land is assessedaccording to a set percentage ofmarket value. With Nebraska beingat the epicenter of a bullish UnitedStates agricultural land market inrecent years, it is inevitable thatthose increases have come to bearon assessed values for property taxpurposes.But sticker shock may also beones reaction to how theagricultural land assessmenttrends compare with valuation ofother real estate classes thatconstitute the basis of our propertytax system. Going back over tenyears of data maintained by theNebraska Department of Revenue,Property Assessment Division, wehave tracked the agricultural landclass share of total annual increasein assessed valuation for the entirestate (Figure 1). A decade ago, theagricultural land share of annualincrease in valuation was less than25 percent. But starting in 2008,with the onset of a serious nationalrecession, a dramatic shift occurred.Even though Nebraska was sparedthe full brunt of the recession, thestates residential and commercial/industrial real estate values wereno longer rising and frequentlyProperty Tax Assessment Trends and Tax ImplicationsContinued on page 7Check out our Agstuff ClassifiedsPages 14-19Page 2 October 31, 2013Nebraska Farm & Ranch - WeatherFarm and RanchPPuubblliisshheerrss - Central Nebraska PublicationsGGeenneerraall MMaannaaggeerr - Marc CurrieSSaalleess RReepprreesseennttaattiivveessTodd Smith John LynottCher Scoville Megan VanDeValle Darlene OverleesePPrroodduuccttiioonn - Chris Frazer PPrroodduuccttiioonn AAssssiissttaanntt - Laura R.

Box 415 Kearney, NE 68847 1-800-658-3191Copyright 2013Al Dutcher ReportWeather Commentary Provided By Al DutcherUNL, State ClimatologistWeek One Forecast, 11/2 - 11/8: Anupper air trough is projected to moveacross the northern half of theRockies during the beginning of thisforecast period. This will push theupper level ridge into the centralPlains and lead to fair weather andnormal temperatures during the11/2-11/3 period. The upper airtrough will begin to make its wayinto the central and northern Plainson 11/4, leading to the developmentof a surface low over northwesternKansas. Current model depiction ofthis low indicates that the primarymoisture with this system willremain north of Nebraska and anyprecipitation that does fall will beconfined to the northern half of thestate. Models indicate that the bestchances for precipitation fall acrossthe northern Panhandle where rainand/or snow will be possible on 11/4,with light rain possible across northcentral and northeast Nebraska.Further south, scattered sprinklesare possible. As is the case at thistime of the year, a southward shift inthe projected storm path could bringmore significant snowaccumulations into northwest andnorth central Nebraska on 11/4, withsprinkles to light rain for theremainder of the state. The coldfront is expected to clear the stateduring the first half of 11/5 and highpressure is projected to dominatethe remainder of the forecast period.Temperatures will slowly warm asthe week progresses in response toanother trough entering thenorthern Rockies. This will pushthe upper level ridge into the centralPlains and is expected to keepNebraska dry through 11/9. HighTemperatures: 11/2 (47 NE - 68 SW),11/3 (53 NE - 62 SW), 11/4 (42 NW-55 SE), 11/5 (36 NW - 45 SE), 11/6(36 NE - 41 SW), 11/7 (44 NE - 53SW), 11/8 (47 NE - 58 SW)Week Two Forecast, 11/9 - 11/15:Weather models indicate thatanother trough will move from thenorthern Rockies into the centralPlains by 11/10. Warm and dryconditions are expected statewide on11/10. A surface low is projected todevelop over western Nebraska on11/10 and move southeast. Themain precipitation shield with thissystem is projected to impact theDakotas, with only a few sprinklesor periods of light rain expectedacross the northern 1/3 of the state.Depending on the timing of the coldfrontal passage on 11/10, it ispossible that flurries and/or lightsnow may occur if the cold frontpushes through the region duringthe late afternoon hours. Modelsindicate dry weather will envelopethe state on 11/11, before anotherstorm system develops over thesouthern Plains in response to upperatmospheric energy movingeastward through the southernRockies. Weather models indicatethat moisture will surge northwardfrom Texas and Oklahoma and hasthe potential to bring periods of rainand/or scattered thunderstorms tothe eastern half of the state on 11/12.A cold front is projected to slidesouthward through the Dakotas on11/13, but stall near the Nebraskaand South Dakota border.Therefore, the current modelconsensus is that the moistureassociated with the 11/12 systemwill be well east of the area beforethe cold air arrives. Anyprecipitation that does fall on 11/13will be confined to extreme northernNebraska and is likely to be no morethan occasional flurries. If themodels are correct, the surface coldair will slowly push southward andis not projected to clear the stateuntil the second half of 11/15.Moisture with this front is projectedto be very limited, and nothing morethan an isolated sprinkle or snowflurry is currently expected. HighTemperatures: 11/9 (50 N - 59 S),11/10 (36 N - 41 S), 11/11 (40 NE - 47SW), 11/12 (45 NE - 59 SW), 11/13(43 NW - 64 SE), 11/14 (41 N - 55 S),11/15 (36 N - 50 S).Allen Dutcher Sunday, November 03 High: 57 Low: 30 Chance of Precip: 5% Partly Cloudy Sunrise: 7:27 AM - Sunset: 5:42 PM Monday, November 04 High: 45 Low: 25 Chance of Precip: 15% Isolated Wintry Mix Sunrise: 7:29 AM - Sunset: 5:40 PM Tuesday, November 05 High: 39 Low: 21 Chance of Precip: 20% Isolated Wintry Mix Sunrise: 7:30 AM - Sunset: 5:39 PM Wednesday, November 06 High: 39 Low: 27 Chance of Precip: 0% Snow Flurries Sunrise: 7:31 AM - Sunset: 5:38 PM Thursday, November 07 High: 43 Low: 30 Sunny Sunrise: 7:32 AM - Sunset: 5:37 PM Friday, November 08 High: 46 Low: 32 Mostly Sunny Sunrise: 7:34 AM - Sunset: 5:36 PM Saturday, November 09 High: 50 Low: 39 Partly Cloudy Sunrise: 7:35 AM - Sunset: 5:35 PM Sunday, November 10 High: 54 Low: 28 Mostly Sunny Sunrise: 7:36 AM - Sunset: 5:34 PM Monday, November 11 High: 46 Low: 34 Sunny Sunrise: 7:37 AM - Sunset: 5:33 PM Tuesday, November 12 High: 39 Low: 30 Snow Flurries Sunrise: 7:39 AM - Sunset: 5:32 PM Sunday, November 03 High: 61 Low: 39 Chance of Precip: 0% Mostly Sunny Sunrise: 7:10 AM - Sunset: 5:29 PM Monday, November 04 High: 54 Low: 34 Chance of Precip: 15% Isolated Showers Sunrise: 7:11 AM - Sunset: 5:28 PM Tuesday, November 05 High: 46 Low: 27 Chance of Precip: 40% Scattered Showers Sunrise: 7:12 AM - Sunset: 5:27 PM Wednesday, November 06 High: 52 Low: 28 Chance of Precip: 15% Mostly Sunny Sunrise: 7:13 AM - Sunset: 5:26 PM Thursday, November 07 High: 48 Low: 30 Sunny Sunrise: 7:14 AM - Sunset: 5:25 PM Friday, November 08 High: 52 Low: 36 Mostly Sunny Sunrise: 7:15 AM - Sunset: 5:24 PM Saturday, November 09 High: 52 Low: 37 Partly Cloudy Sunrise: 7:17 AM - Sunset: 5:23 PM Sunday, November 10 High: 59 Low: 36 Partly Cloudy Sunrise: 7:18 AM - Sunset: 5:22 PM Monday, November 11 High: 46 Low: 32 Mostly Sunny Sunrise: 7:19 AM - Sunset: 5:21 PM Tuesday, November 12 High: 43 Low: 30 Partly Cloudy Sunrise: 7:20 AM - Sunset: 5:20 PM Sunday, November 03 High: 61 Low: 43 Chance of Precip: 5% Mostly Sunny Sunrise: 7:01 AM - Sunset: 5:17 PM Monday, November 04 High: 55 Low: 37 Chance of Precip: 30% Scattered Showers Sunrise: 7:02 AM - Sunset: 5:16 PM Tuesday, November 05 High: 50 Low: 34 Chance of Precip: 40% Scattered Showers Sunrise: 7:03 AM - Sunset: 5:15 PM Wednesday, November 06 High: 48 Low: 28 Chance of Precip: 25% Partly Cloudy Sunrise: 7:04 AM - Sunset: 5:14 PM Thursday, November 07 High: 45 Low: 28 Sunny Sunrise: 7:05 AM - Sunset: 5:13 PM Friday, November 08 High: 50 Low: 37 Sunny Sunrise: 7:07 AM - Sunset: 5:12 PM Saturday, November 09 High: 52 Low: 37 Partly Cloudy Sunrise: 7:08 AM - Sunset: 5:11 PM Sunday, November 10 High: 54 Low: 37 Partly Cloudy Sunrise: 7:09 AM - Sunset: 5:10 PM Monday, November 11 High: 45 Low: 30 Partly Cloudy Sunrise: 7:10 AM - Sunset: 5:09 PM Tuesday, November 12 High: 45 Low: 37 Partly Cloudy Sunrise: 7:12 AM - Sunset: 5:08 PM Weather OutlookWestern Central EasternNebraska Weather and CropsLINCOLN For the week endingOctober 27, 2013, dry weatherthroughout the state was welcomedby corn and soybean producers whowere busy harvesting their crops.Cooler than average temperatureshowever, slowed crop dry-down insome areas.

Thankfully my mother-in-law helped him out that day instead. In our area of the state, hills abound and theflat land is few and far between. Right before wewere married, my husband snapped up some ofthe flat land about 7 miles away from where ourfarm is located.He and his parents had also grabbed a fieldaround 9 miles the other direction years ago aswell.This means that in the spring and fall I get tospend half a day helping move all the equipmentneeded to farm those acres.The spring isnt so bad, as all he really needs isthe tractor/planter and the truck with the seed inthe back of it. One trip to plant the corn andanother to plant the soybeans and were done.The fall is where we really get hung up on thedriving for hours and going nowhere.We have to move the combine, the pickup withthe corn or soybean head on the trailer behind it,and two grain trucks. But wait, theres more. When he comes backover to do corn, we have to add another tractorand grain cart to the mix.So, we have four trips for soybeans and fivetrips for corn.Then, we have a total of four and five moretrips when hes done with the field to moveeverything back. Take that multiplied by twofields in opposite directions.Thats 36 trips in the fall for those of you whodont want to do the math. Yay.Unfortunately, its a series of constantlydriving, picking up, dropping off and drivingsome more, so I have little free time to read or doanything else.In the time it takes to move everything, I couldhave driven to Des Moines and half way back.However, the crops on it yield far better thanthe hilly land so its a good trade-off.The big kid turns 16 in January. I hope thatnext fall he will feel comfortable enough drivingeither the pickup with the trailer or the graintrucks. Then, my trips will be cut in half. Or, if I playmy cards right, they will be non-existent becausethe big kid can take over with the picking up anddropping off. I dont think Ill be that lucky.The one thing I dont have to do this year iswaiting to pick up the big kid at school events. Ive never been so happy that he has a schoolpermit, and that I can trust him to driveresponsibly.Hes in so many after school and eveningactivities that I would have probably spent mostof this fall ferrying him back and forth to thefarm at night.Unfortunately, in a couple years the little onewill be at an age where he is going to requireferrying as well.But until that time, Im going to enjoy my freeevening once or twice a week.Carol Hammer~OWNER~148 N.

Be sure to complete yourharvest before the first hard frost. Immaturegourds will not cure correctly, so only harvestmature fruit.After harvest, wash the gourd in a mild bleachsolution; dry off with a soft cloth. Discard anybruised, diseased or damaged fruit. To dry, placegourds on slatted trays, chicken wire fencing orcake cooking racks. The gourds should not toucheach other. Place in warm, dry and well-ventilated location. Curing can take one to six months, dependingon the type of gourd. The outer skin hardensrather quickly, the internal drying takes muchlonger. Poke a small hole in the blossom end ofthe gourd to quicken internal drying.Turn the gourds occasionally to ensure evendrying.When you shake the gourd and hear the seedsrattling, it is cured and ready for a coat of paintor varnish. One of my most treasured keepsakesfrom my grandmother is a gourd that she driedand varnished over 60 years ago. She did thingsright by patiently drying the gourd until theseeds rattled before varnishing. Varnishing orpainting too quickly will promote mold growthbecause the moisture is trying to get out.Drying GourdsSusan Hansen, Extension Educator, University ofNebraska-Lincoln Extension, Colfax CountySnacking is not always a bad habit. In fact,healthy snacks should be part of the daily diet.The key word is healthy. Always snacking ondonuts, cake, cookies or candy is not a good idea.Snacking on fruits, vegetables, low-fat crackersor low-fat dairy products is a good idea.Plan ahead for snacks to make sure a healthyalternative is available. This is especiallyimportant if you have young children andgrowing adolescents in the house. But dontforget that adults can benefit from plannedsnacks.Keep fresh fruits and vegetables on hand in therefrigerator or on the counter. Most people do noteat the recommended daily requirement of fourfruits and five vegetables. Snacks can help oneget closer to that recommended daily allowance,or RDA.Prepare or buy snacks that are low in sugar, fatand sodium. A glass of low-fat or skim milk or cupof hot cocoa made with skim milk is not only agood snack but also an excellent source ofcalcium and vitamin D. Low-fat or nonfat yogurtis also another option.Need a crunchy snack? Try pretzels, grahamcrackers, saltine crackers, unsweetened cereal orlow-fat popcorn. Air popcorn is better than low-fat popcorn but to me, it is like eating cardboard.If you like air-popped popcorn, great, since it isthe best choice of popcorn.Healthy SnackingPage 4 October 31, 2013Nebraska Farm & Ranch - The Lighter Side I T S T H E P I T T S b y L e e P i t t s F r e e F o r A l lby Lee PittsWe have an annual Halloween ritual inwhich my wife buys three bags ofHalloween candy knowing full well that weNEVER, EVER, get trick or treaters. Thenshe says, Oh, well I guess Ill just have toeat it myself. (As if shes making a bigsacrifice.)The reason we dont get trick or treatersis because we live on a very steep hill onthe edge of a state park where all sorts offrightening things are found, like bears,mountain lions and Sierra Club members.We miss seeing all the cute little tikes intheir costumes so this year we invitedourselves to some friends house forHalloween where they said we couldanswer the door and hand out candy. Their candy, mind you, not my wifescandy. Its been over 25 years since we had trickor treaters and we were unprepared for thecostumes kids were wearing. Theneighborhood was crawling with kids of allages, all looking for a handout, but insteadof traditional Disney characters, ghosts,and ballerinas there was a current eventstheme to their outfits this year. Todays children are a lot more politicallyaware than we ever were. We saw a reallyscary trio all dressed in three-piece suitswho were supposed to be Reid, Pelosi andBoehner. They were dragging behind theman old cotton sack overflowing with sweets.They explained that they had asked theirfriend Bernanke to join them but he showedno interest. One trick or treater wasdressed as Obama and when we met him atthe door he said, I want all of your candyand I will not negotiate.We also had a taxpayer who was down tohis shorts and a lobbyist who ended upgiving us candy. Several came as proathletes, wearing prison stripes and theirbodies padded with pillows so theyd look asif they were all pumped up on steroids. A new twist wed never seen before wasthat kids arrived at the door in groups.There was a young girl dressed as a PETAmember, wearing only three lettuce leavesand she was accompanied by what wepresume was a member of The VegetarianSociety because he was dressed as a cube oftofu. Together they wouldnt have made adecent sandwich. There was also a representative for allthe suppressed and downtrodden folks whowere too lazy this year to do their own trickor treating.A lot of kids this year were dressed asendangered species. There were buzzards,wolves, slimy snails, skunks and fairyshrimp, and that was just the parentswaiting for their kids at the curb. Onechild, who I think was either a three toedsalamander or a leaping lesbian lizard, wasall by herself. I asked her what she waswearing around her neck and she said, Itsa tracking collar so my Mom can find me.I was really stumped by a young girl whowas leaking water all over the front porch.And what might you be? I asked.Im a glacier, she replied, and Immelting because of global warming. But havent you heard that for the past15 years there hasnt been any globalwarming and the oceans arent going toflood the West Coast, unless, of course, thebloated Mr. Gore decides to take a dip inthe Pacific and displaces all the water. In that case, she said, can I use yourgarden hose to fill back up?You know times are tough just by the ageof the trick or treaters. Is that you Fred?I asked my doctor. You look terrible. Whatare you supposed to be?Im a forlorn doctor who just got hisFerrari repossessed due to ObamaCare. After we turned out the lights for thenight we had our last trick or treater, ahomeless man with a scraggly beard,wearing tattered clothes and accompaniedby his two dogs.

But hes yet tolisten to the cries of the thousands of Americans whoare losing their current coverage or facing higherpremiums next year due to the ill-advised law.Following one of those meetings with politicallyconnected executives, the president announced hewould extend by six weeks the deadline forindividuals to enroll in mandatory health insurance.The extension comes amid massive technical andstructural failures on the government-run websitedesigned to help folks purchase insurance. Imhearing from Nebraskans who experienced troublewhile attempting to enroll on the website, citing pagecrashes, hours of slow service, errors in theinformation recorded and no confirmation ofenrollment. Reports indicate that even whenindividuals finish the enrollment process, the systemis consistently producing errors.Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska a majorprovider in our state hired extra staff to helpresolve issues caused by website errors. The problemgot so bad they eventually had to stop thoseenrollments from going through the automatedprocess, further complicating matters.Despite these problems, the administration is stillforcing Americans to buy coverage or pay a fine.The grass isnt any greener once folks are finallyable to enroll. A slew of independent studies warn ofmassive hikes in health insurance premiums forthose purchasing plans through state and federally-run exchanges. Younger Americansthose withfewer health expenses on averageare facing thesteepest increases. A Manhattan Institute analysisfound the premiums of young and healthyNebraskans are expected to increase 279 percent formen and 227 percent for women. All of this is hard evidence that Obamacare is notready for primetime, but Im afraid its only a previewof other problems yet to be uncovered. One thing weknow for sure is that the law, dubbed the AffordableCare Act, is anything but. Its driving costs higherand creating an unprecedented drag on the economy.A more honest title would be the Unaffordable CareAct.President Obama has already delayed for a yearprovisions mandating certain employers provideinsurance, but this delay and a six-week enrollmentextension for individuals are not going to fix themany flaws in this law. Republican lawmakers,myself included, have drafted, proposed andadvocated for many bills to delay or repealObamacare, but Democrats have insisted on pushingthe law forward, frequently refusing to allow even avote in the Senate to change the bill.The time for political victories and pride is over.Americans are struggling to imagine how they willpay the higher premiums, while others are forced tosearch for a new doctor due to the laws mandates.Its clear to me that Obamacare needs to be repealedand replaced. Until that is achievable, I will continueto support meaningful efforts to unwind this lawsmost damaging provisions. Its time for the lawsarchitects to check their egos at the door and joinRepublicans in rescuing families from an unfair,unwise and downright harmful law.Kearney Office:4111 Fourth Avenue, Suite 26 Kearney, NE 68845Tel: (308) 236-7602 Fax: (308) 236-7473Lincoln Office:294 Federal Building 100 CentennialMall NorthLincoln, NE 68508Tel: (402) 476-1400 Fax: (402) 476-0605Scottsbluff Office:115 Railway Street, Suite C102Scottsbluff, NE 69361Tel: (308) 632-6032Fax: (308) 632-6295Omaha Office:9900 Nicholas St., Suite 325Omaha, NE 68114Tel: (402) 758-8981Fax: (402) 758-9165Washington, D.C.

Despite the raised concerns andrepeated assurances by the administration it wouldbe fully functional, very few people so far have beenable to use even some of the most basic functionssuch as creating an account. The administration initially claimed the problemswere due to technical glitches and because ofoverwhelming demand. It is now clear the problemsare much deeper. The website simply doesnt workfor the vast majority of users. In addressing thewebsites ineffectiveness, the president directedusers to call the toll free help line which also facedlong delays and usually referred users back to thedefective website. For the few users who are able toactually log on to the website, price estimatesfrequently are wrong, the system often misidentifiesindividuals, and the information sent to insurancecompanies many times is inaccurate.The Committee on Ways and Means will hold ahearing on implementation of the health care lawwith Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the Centersfor Medicare and Medicaid Services which overseesthe operation of the exchanges. This hearing will bea good first step to identify how the administrationhas addressed implementation, and what is beingdone to correct the problems.While we do not have all of the answers yet, thewebsite problems have highlighted that the healthcare law is overly-complex, expensive and not readyfor implementation.Third District residents have been contacting myoffice to share their stories and frustrations with thelaw and the website. The new mandates andregulations included in the law are forcing up thecost of insurance. One recent caller said herpremium is set to go up about $5,000 next year witha high deductible.Another Nebraskan emailed me after he wasnotified by his insurance company his plan would nolonger be offered, and a comparable plan would costhim 110 percent more than he is currently paying.He hoped to be able to find more affordable coveragethrough the online exchanges, but so far has beenunable to because the website cannot verify hisidentity. He argued, We should not be forced to getinsurance from a government that cant run thingsright. I agree. It is not fair to penalize Americans with atax for not buying insurance through a website whichmakes it nearly impossible to buy insurance. I ampleased even many Democrats have now joinedRepublicans in calling for a delay in the individualmandate. The administration has also agreed toextend the enrollment period before which Americanswould be penalized for not having insurance. Thisdecision is a good start but it is not enough. We need to put the brakes on implementation of thelaw before more damage is done to the cost of healthcare and to the American economy. While I continueto favor repeal of the law, given its disastrous debut,even supporters of the law should favor a delay toidentify and fix the problems. Until these seriousissues are resolved, I hope all sides would be willingto alleviate and lessen the problems this law iscreating for the American people.Glitches Reflect Greater Problemsby Congressman Adrian SmithScottsbluff Office416 Valley View Drive, Suite 600Scottsbluff, NE 69361Phone: (308) 633-6333Fax: (308) 633-6335Grand Island Office1811 West Second Street, Suite 105Grand Island, NE68803Phone: (308) 384-3900Fax: (308) 384-3902Washington Office503 Cannon House Office BuildingWashington, D.C. 20515Phone: (202) 225-6435Fax: (202) 225-0207While October brought colder weather, fallactivities, and the beginning of the holiday season,this month also marked an opportunity to bringattention to an important cause: breast cancerawareness.Every woman can relate to the worry and anxietyfelt when having a yearly mammogram. Its notuncommon for women to retake the test or have afollow-up ultrasound because their mammogramsshowed irregularities or signs of what might bebreast cancer. During those days that seem like weeks beforereceiving the results, women endure a wait filledwith uncertainty and fear. We hope for the best, butcant help contemplating the worst-case scenariosflashing through our minds, knowing that our livescould change dramatically in an instant. In many cases, tests are negative, we breathe asigh of relief, and go on back to carpooling andjuggling family commitments with busy workschedules. All too often, though, a woman hears thoselife-altering words from her doctor that she indeedhas been diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2013, the American Cancer Society estimatesthere will be more than 230,000 new cases of invasivebreast cancer, more than 64,000 new cases of in situbreast cancer, and nearly 40,000 deaths due to breastcancer among women. These numbers aredevastating and represent the thousands of womenaffected by the disease in just one year.Behind those numbers are brave women ourfriends, our colleagues, our family members whobattle breast cancer. Like so many Nebraskans, Ihave many people in my own life who have sufferedfrom this disease.Recently, a close friend of mine discovered that shehas breast cancer. Like many others, she is veryyoung. She and her family faced this battle withgrace, faith, courage and positive determination. Theprayers and well wishes the family received fromfriends helped, but she said it was her familys strongbond and unconditional love that helped her throughthe difficult time, both physically and emotionally.Thankfully, her tests are now clear, but she mustremain very careful and continue to be checked everyfew months.I so admire the fierce strength and courage of allthe women battling breast cancer, as well assurvivors and those whom the disease takes from us.Their grace and dignity during their treatments arean inspiration, and their family members and friendsalso deserve great respect and recognition for theirdevoted care and support.Its encouraging to see people come together insupport of this cause across the country each year.The cause transcends gender. Both men andwomen of all ages participate in philanthropic eventsand contribute to efforts to raise awareness abouthow others can get involved. Football teams acrossthe nation have even gone pink in support ofnational breast cancer awareness. The pink ribbonhas become a universal symbol of support for allwomen who have dealt with breast cancer andrepresents our commitment to finding a cure.Countless groups and organizations dedicate theirtime, energy, and resources to fighting the diseasethis month and year-round. Their inspiring work andleadership are the driving force behind growingpublic awareness and educating women about howthey can catch and treat the disease early. The singlebest way to fight this disease is early diagnosis. Istrongly urge all women young or old to receiveregular mammograms and screenings.I am also cosponsoring legislation to ensure womenfaced with invasive surgery are informed of all careoptions. The bill would create an educationalcampaign, at no cost to the taxpayer, to inform breastcancer patients of the availability and coverage ofbreast reconstruction and other options. Knowledgeis power, and it's important that all patients are wellinformed.According to the National Cancer Institute, one ineight women born today will be diagnosed withbreast cancer in her lifetime. Let us continue to worktogether on behalf of women and all individualswhose lives are impacted by this terrible disease andsupport efforts that can help us find an ultimate cure.October 31, 2013 Page 7Nebraska Farm & RanchNov 22-Dec 31 - Beatrice (Gage County)Winter Festival of Prairie Cultures;Homestead National Monument of America, 8523W.

Meanwhile, the agriculturalindustry and its associated real estate marketsexperienced a steady upward climb. By 2009, theagricultural land class accounted for 50 percentof the increase in total assessed valuation for thestate, and that percentage has continued to riseever since. Despite recent economic recovery anda returned growth of building in the residentialand commercial real estate sectors, theagricultural land portion of the increase in totalvaluation from 2012 to 2013 was 87 percent (thisreflects the fact that while residential andrecreational values climbed 1.6 percent andcommercial and industrial valuation rose 3.5percent, the statewide increase in agriculturalland was 22.8 percent).Of course, those annual trends workingthrough the county-by-county propertyassessment roles across the state have meant asignificant shift in the agricultural land share ofthe property tax assessment pie (Figure 2). Forthe state as a whole, in 2008 the agriculturalland slice of the total assessment pie was 22percent. As of today, that slice has grown to be 33percent of total state property value, to whichproperty taxes are levied.With property taxes being levied for localgovernment purposes, the ultimate taximplications occur at the local level. So theagricultural land share of county property valueassessment is the critical point. Figure 3indicates the agricultural land percentage shareof 2013 real property assessments. In 66 of thestates 93 counties, the agricultural land baserepresents at least 50 percent of the assessedvalue; and in many counties, that share is fargreater.As the Nebraska Legislatures TaxModernization Committeeproceeds through its reviewprocess this fall, it will be wellfor all involved to thoughtfullyconsider the following: The agricultural sector isnot only the engine of our ruraleconomies, but it is also theheavy lifter of local governmentservices. Agricultures share of theproperty tax load hassignificantly increased in recentyears. Any tax reform measures torebalance Nebraskas taxsystem must pay criticalattention to property taxation atthe local levels of government,and particularly to the taxburden carried by theagricultural community.PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENT TRENDS AND TAX IMPLICATIONSContinued from page 1Page 8 October 31, 2013Nebraska Farm & Ranch - MarketCornDecember 2013 Corn (CBOT) - Daily ChartOpen . . .4.300High . . . .4.362Low . . . .4.296Close . . .4.344Change +0.420WheatDecember 2013 Wheat (CBOT) - Daily ChartOpen . . . .6.750High . . . .6.770Low . . . . .6.722Close . . . .6.724Change .-0.240SoybeansCountry Grain Prices as of 10/29/13 Location Corn New Corn Beans New Beans Wheat New Wheat Milo New MiloAurora $4.13 $4.26 $12.27 $11.13 $7.18 $6.71 $4.76Bloomfield $4.01 $4.24 $12.33 $10.82BruningChappell $4.27 $4.33 $12.09 $10.58 $7.01 $6.48Columbus $4.12 $12.39Franklin $4.13 $4.24 $12.30 $10.73 $7.20 $6.64 $4.08 $3.74FremontFunk $4.18 $4.31 $12.38 $10.86 $7.20 $6.63 $4.03 $3.74Gordon *** $3.88 $4.12 $6.91 $6.33Grand Island $4.15 $4.31 $12.41 $11.16Grant $4.27 $4.33 $12.08 $10.57 $7.01 $6.48Hastings $4.18 $4.32 $12.43 $10.86 $7.34 $6.80 $4.23 $3.95Hemingford $4.07 $4.32 $7.13 $6.53Holdrege $4.21 $4.21 $12.33 $10.78 $7.25 $6.65 $3.91Imperial *** $4.28 $4.33 $12.11 $10.56 $7.06 $6.49Kearney $4.24 $12.30Kimball $4.27 $4.33 $7.01 $6.49Lexington $4.21 $4.32 $12.29 $10.83Lincoln $4.24 $4.37 $12.65 $11.03 $6.85 $3.89 $4.05Maywood $4.24 $4.29 $12.21 $10.63 $7.22 $6.48 $3.99 $4.09McCook $7.05 $7.48 $12.19 $10.68 $7.06 $6.48 $3.92 $4.03Merna $4.12 $4.26 $12.23 $10.75 $7.11 $6.56Nebraska CityNorfolk $4.12 $12.32North Platte $4.20 $4.29 $12.33 $10.75 $7.29 $6.55 $3.99 $4.10OgallalaOrd $4.14 $4.15 $12.47 $12.47Overton $4.22 $4.25 $12.35 $10.79Sidney $4.26 $4.25 $7.10 $6.40St.Paul $4.06 $12.31Superior $4.21 $4.40 $12.25 $11.06 $7.38 $6.99 $4.21 $3.96Waco $4.16 $4.29 $12.31 $10.89 $7.26 $6.70 $4.09WahooWayneAllianceImperialGordonHemingford 671AboveAboveAboveNorthernOil FlowersSpring WheatSpring Wheat$50.00$6.96$7.01PintoOil Flowers (new)Spring Wheat(new)Spring Wheat(new)$40.00$6.81$6.86By David M.

Resistance is at the 20-day moving aver-age up at $4.39. The daily trading ranges continue to befairly tight for the most part. The range for the wholemonth of October has been just under 22 cents. With theUSDA proving weekly reports again, the harvest progresswas listed at 59% complete and rains should slow progressthrough Friday for most of the belt. The progress wasgreater than expected and should be around 70% nextMonday. Ethanol production was 1.6% higher on the week,with inventories down .3.2%. The usage is a positive forethanol producers. The cheaper price of ethanol has beenhelping bring gas prices down. The weekly export inspec-tions were ok at 26.6 million bushels, and exports for thepast three weeks were good at 4.56 million metric tons. Thesales activity has been better than thought, so althoughthe livestock feeding is still too small, exports illustrate astart to improving demand. South America has been sourc-ing significant US corn for the first time since April of2012. Economic science would suggest lower prices shouldencourage usage, that would also go for reduce plantedarea. South American full season corn planting is under-way, with better rains expected this week. However, themargins for second crop corn are negative at this pointwhich could discourage some area from being planted. USfarmers are ready for economic science to start workingbetter with prices around half of the value a year ago, butunfortunately these things take time. Basis has started tostabilize with harvest now slowed, and seasonally we arewell past the half way point. Producers also remember croprevenue insurance will not be effective price protection anylonger. The October average is coming in just under $4.40.Big crop report out next Friday! Due to the shutdown theUSDA report will be a sum of two months of harvest time-frame.

For the week, December Chicago is 15 lower,KC is 11 lower, and Minneapolis is 13 lower. TheDecember Chicago contract has fallen backthrough nearby support, with the $6.75 holding atmidweek. Planting progress for winter wheat wasrated at 86% complete, with 61% rated good toexcellent. The Black Sea area weather hasimproved, as has China for now. Argentina shouldcatch decent rains this week to ease dryness. Indialowered the export price for wheat adding somepressure. The catch up export sales were ok at 1.31million metric tons, but wheat business has beenpushed to the back burner lately. Export inspec-tions slipped to 16.6 million bushels, which is stilldecent and the big soybean program is crowdingout some wheat. Wheat should be priced back outof feed rations for now. The trend has turned downfor the moment, so the bull argument needs somehelp from the export sector currently. Hedgers callwith questions.Jan. 13 Dec. Meal Dec.

Export inspections were huge at 83.6 millionbushels as harvest as the pipeline refills. Thecatch up exports were good with 4.74 million met-ric tons of beans, 805,200 of meal, and 14,500 ofsoyoil. Additional USDA confirmations included 2cargos of beans to unknown and 2 cargos to China.South American planting is moving along with okweather so far with heavy rains for Argentina slat-ed for the end of the week, and early Braziliandevelopment is good. A balance of the good SouthAmerican weather and good US demand shouldkeep beans sideways in the week ahead with a bigreaction likely to any surprises from the USDA onthe monthly report next Friday.

The deadline is Nov.15.While deep burials are difficult in the rocky regionof northwest Nebraska, animals have to be buried atleast 4 feet deep, he said.There is another catch, and it has to do with thepartial government shutdown.The aid is only available to cattle that haven't yetbeen buried, so ranchers can't be paid for cattle thatwere buried immediately after the storm, Vickerssaid.Had the shutdown not occurred, the NRCSworkers would have been able to get this programtogether sooner."The furlough caused a bit of a delay and we'retrying to catch up as best we can," he said."If we had had continuous operations, we wouldhave been able to get out there the day after theblizzard, and we would have been able to put thissignup together much faster."The program is called the Livestock MortalityInitiative and is being made available through theUSDA's Environmental Quality Incentives Program.It is available to ranchers in the Upper NiobraraWhite Natural Resources District, which includesSioux, Box Butte, Dawes and Sheridan Counties innorthwest Nebraska.For more information, see http://www.ne.nrcs.usda.gov.Nancy Gaarder, The Omaha World-HeraldThe misery that was the massive die-off of cattleduring early October's blizzard continued after thecattle died.A gruesome problem unfolded for individualranchers: What to do with dozens to hundreds of cowand calf carcasses scattered across miles of pastureor piled in groups in ponds, ravines and againstfences?More than 2,200 cattle died in northwestNebraska, and many thousands more died in SouthDakota. Estimates for that state range from 15,000to 30,000.Generally speaking, there are three sanctioneddisposal methods: rendering, composting and burial.Disposal would have been simple if all ranchershad to do was bring in a rendering truck or dig a holefor burial.Nothing has been simple about this mass cattledeath.This is a region of Nebraska where the soil turnsquicksand-like when it gets wet the local name forit is gumbo.The storm, first as rain and then as snow, dumpeda month's worth of moisture in just a few days. Afterthe storm moved on and the muck began drying out,another storm moved through. Several days later,another.Depending on where a ranch is located, more thanthree times the normal month-to-date precipitationhas fallen. Another rain-snow mix is possible in thecoming week.Driving rendering trucks deep into pastures hasn'tbeen realistic, unless the pastures were in an areawhere the ground was navigable. Hauling the bodiesto waiting trucks hasn't been easy, either. In somecases, it's been impossible.Still, in cases where it has been possible, ranchershave sent the carcasses to rendering plants.Then there's the burial option. That's not easyeither.Northwest Nebraska has a thin layer of soil thatsits atop an otherwise rocky subsurface. Digging intothat rock is difficult.That's one reason state and local governmentshave joined forces to offer an alternative.Charles Gidley, supervisor of the solid wastesection for the Nebraska Department ofEnvironmental Quality, said the state has allowedthe Solid Waste Association of Northwest Nebraskato dig a trench at its landfill near Chadron and makeit available to ranchers. So far, the landfill, run by acoalition of local governments, has seen little traffic,Gidley said.The USDA has announced a special program tohelp pay the cost of disposal, which would giveranchers some extra cash to bury carcasses on theirranches or get them to the landfill.Shaun Vickers, state resource conservationist withthe USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service,said signup for that program should be done throughlocal conservation service offices, and signups aredue by Nov. 15.To a large extent, ranchers have been diggingburial pits where possible.Gidley said the state requires that 10 feet separatethe bottom of a burial pit from the top of the watertable. Also, the dead animals must be covered by 4feet of dirt.Properly buried cattle are not considered a threatto water quality, Gidley said."Most of the groundwater up there is very deep andinaccessible," he said. "And it's of poor quality."The other accepted solution, composting, generallyhasn't been an option, simply because it's gettinglate in the year.Legally, ranchers can't leave carcasses scatteredabout to deteriorate naturally. But given the difficultconditions, the vastness of the area and the scope ofthe problem, that is what some ranchers have had todo.The carcasses are being scavenged by coyotes,vultures and similar animals.Gidley said the state is aware of the difficultiesranchers are facing."We understand that some of the carcasses couldbe difficult to recover," he said. But given what thelaw stipulates, he added that the state's advice forranchers is that they bury or bring to the landfillthose carcasses they can reach.Gidley said the state has no plans for additionalwater quality monitoring or proactive inspections ofthe area.The state will respond to complaints.As of late this past week, a single complaint hadbeen made that a group of dead cattle were piledtogether near a road. The state, he said, is workingwith that rancher to dispose of the carcasses.Weather, Terrain Complicate Disposal of Dead CattleBy David M. FialaFuturesOne President and Chief Analyst/Advisor David M.

Much of the NebraskaPanhandle and Western South Dakota and parts of Wyoming arecontinuing to deal with the devastation left by Winter Storm Atlas.According to The Weather Channel much of the region was coveredwith up to 4 feet of snow coupled with 70 mph winds. Early esti-mates by the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association are thatSouth Dakota lost 5 percent of their cattle with final yet to be deter-mined. Additionally it's estimated that the indirect impact of cattlelost could be upward of 1.6 billion dollars. True losses are still beingassessed due to slow clean up made cumbersome by saturatedground. High testing hay is scarce this year due to below normalprecipitation and short irrigation water and above normal temper-atures and late season rains. Additionally a sharp increase in stackdamage has been reported across the entire region. All prices dol-lars per ton FOB stack in large square bales and rounds, unless oth-erwise noted.

Feeder cattle have ground lowerwith long profit taking as well. The weekly netchanges are 40 higher on December Live Cattleand 110 lower on January Feeder Cattle. Thecutout activity is higher so far this week, withchoice coming back up 5.58 to $205.68, andselect up $4.71 to 190.09. This should limit thedownside in the futures as well as a steady tofirmer cash trade bias. Cash trade is expected towait until Thursday or Friday with steady tradeexpected. December Live Cattle on the chartremain positive with support in the $132.80area, with resistance in the $134.50 area.Carcass weights have been moving higherFeeder cattle have gotten fairly overboughtwhich has been corrected a bit, but tight num-bers should support trade for now. Cow calf andbackgrounders need to look at our record highfeeder prices as a place to get some protectionon, even if through options. The USDA isexpected to release the October Cattle on Feedreport on Friday, delayed due to the shutdown.Total on Feed is expected to be at 92.7% of ayear ago with placements up 1% and market-ings up 4%. Hedgers call with questions.Lean hog trade continued its upside tear early in theweek, before breaking sharply lower on Wednesday. Forthe week December trade is unchanged, with morestrength in the back months. June futures move up near$102 but are now back below $100. Nearby Decemberfutures have chart resistance at 9250, and support at8950; although we set back the chart trend remains pos-itive. The pork cutout has softened through midweek.Carcass weights are improving and more finished hogsare becoming available with packers getting numbers atan ok clip although numbers are still much lower thanlast year. The dollar remains in the lower end of therange which should help exports. The PEDv concernswill linger with more opportunities to spread this time ofyear. Margins for 2014 remain attractive for locking upsome forwards business.

Ken Haar of Malcolm said Tuesdaythe state committee handling the study isdisregarding the intent of the Legislature.Haar, a Democrat, is asking his fellow senatorsto help him salvage the $44,000 study byencouraging the committee to reconsider therestrictions it published Monday in the officialrequest for study assistance.The request says researchers "should consider'cyclical climate change' to mean a change in thestate of climate due to natural internal processesand only natural external forcings such asvolcanic eruptions and solar variations."The use of the term "natural" would rule out theprimary cause of the climate changes that haveoccurred in the last half-century: humans.The issue of "cyclical" climate change wassuccessfully amended into Haar's bill by Sen.Beau McCoy of Omaha, a Republican candidatefor governor.McCoy on Tuesday elaborated on his oppositionto using state tax dollars to study man-madeclimate change: Humans aren't capable ofinfluencing climate patterns."I firmly believe our planet goes through cyclicalweather patterns. There have been hotter times,colder times, wetter times and drier times," hesaid.A fourth-generation rancher who has becomeinvolved in construction, McCoy said he "lives anddies" by the weather. Environmental extremists,he said, are drumming up climate change hysteriato further their own agenda."It's environmental groups who have an issuewith our way of life, who have an issue withfarming and ranching and the way we feed theworld," he said. "They are seeking to destroyfarming and ranching as we know it."The Nebraska committee, known as the ClimateAssessment Response Committee, is appointed bythe governor and coordinated by the StateDepartment of Agriculture, which also is overseenby the governor's office.Gov. Dave Heineman has said that he will notbecome directly involved in the study, and that thestudy is the responsibility of the climatecommittee.Bobbie Kriz-Wickham, assistant director of theDepartment of Agriculture who wrote the climatechange definition, said she is trying to hew to theLegislature's definition as she understands itafter reviewing the transcripts of the legislativedebate.She said she also consulted with the climatecommittee and talked with climate researchers.Weather and climate change are two differentthings. Weather happens day-to-day; climateoccurs over the long term.Climate change research has advanced so muchin recent decades that scientists now are 95percent to 100 percent certain that humans havebeen the dominant cause of warming since the1950s, according to the September 2013 report bythe Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change,the leading international reviewer of research.Humans are having a dramatic effect becauseindustrialization has enabled people to dig up andburn, within a few hundred years, the carbon thatit took the Earth millions of years to bury in whatis called the carbon cycle.The types of climate changes affecting Nebraskainclude: A tendency toward warmer summer nights,which reduces corn pollination as well as theproductivity of backyard vegetable gardens. Less water for irrigation as the timing ofmountain snowmelt shifts. The snowmelt helpsfeed the state's rivers. Longer growing seasons. Increased vulnerability of crops to frost andfreeze damage because the occurrence of extremecold snaps is not shifting in concert with theoverall warming of spring and fall.What troubles scientists most is that theresulting rate of warming is accelerating farbeyond anything seen in recorded history, saidDon Wilhite, the University of Nebraska-Lincolnclimatologist who helped Nebraska become aworld leader in drought research and policy.As proposed, the Nebraska climate study wouldlimit researchers to such things as talking aboutthe next ice age, Wilhite said. "If we had to, wecould write a report about when the next ice age iscoming," Wilhite said. "But what we're concernedabout is the rapidity of change over the next fewdecades and how we're going to adapt."Nebraska Lawmakers Spar Over Intent of $44,000 Climate Change StudyLook for more news @ www.myfarmandranch.comPage 8 October 31, 2013Nebraska Farm & Ranch - Gateway Farm ExpoOn your farm, 14-hour days come standard.

Duringthe two weeks on site, the unit was used toharvest 20 bison.Marty Bredthauer, owner of Straight ArrowBison Ranch, said he found the idea on theInternet. Using the unit right next to thepasture where the animals lived allowed themto be slaughtered in a zero-stress environment.Rather than sort and haul his 2-year-old,grass-fed, finished buffalo 100 miles to aslaughterhouse, Bredthauer said slaughteringhis animals from a relaxed state will ultimatelycreate a superior meat product."The biggest reason (for using the MMPU) isbetter-quality meat," he said. "Its especiallyimportant for buffalo because they are more ofa high-strung animal than beef. When ananimal gets worked up, a hormone, cortisol, isreleased in the body and will give off a strangeflavor in the meat."In addition to the stress-free slaughteralternative, Bredthauer also now knows forsure his animals received humane treatmentup to the point of death. When they leave liveanimals at a slaughterhouse, ranchers mustjust hope the animals are treated well untiltheyre killed."I put so much care into ensuring that myanimals have the best possible life, and now bybringing the slaughter to the animals insteadof taking the animals to the slaughter I amtaking additional steps to ensure that their endis quick and humane," Bredthauer said.The MMPU can process 10 to 20 head of cattleper day into hanging halves and approximatelytwice as many hogs, goats and sheep. Thesehalves can be immediately stored in therefrigeration section of the trailer until theycan be transported for processing.Bredthauer pulled the trailer to Hastingswhere a packing house will cut and wrap themeat for his customers. He believes using theunit is slightly more expensive than haulinglive animals to the packing house, but thetrade-off for better quality meat is worth theprice."We are thrilled to have the opportunity towork with Straight Arrow Bison Ranch," saidLaura Krebsbach, director of SRAPsRenewable Harvest Program. "In addition tobeing a stress-free alternative to truckinglivestock to slaughter, the MMPU gives small,responsible producers an option that willenhance their ability to reach more consumersand grow their markets."Because the MMPU is certified by the U.S.Department of Agriculture, the meat from theanimals slaughtered in the trailer can be soldby the cut in retail outlets such as inrestaurants and in grocery stores. Producersalso have the option of not using the USDAcertification and instead doing a customslaughter and selling the animal as a whole orhalf directly to the end user.Krebsbach said her group emphasizesworking with producers who put a high valueon animal welfare and see a need for analternative to the industrial factory farmingand meat-packing system.Krebsbach is networking with groups ofproducers who might be interested in using thetrailer. It will be on display 2-5 p.m. Saturdayat the Bredthauer ranch 5 miles south ofBroken Bow on the Sumner Road.The Socially Responsible Agricultural Projectprovides free, professional assistance to peopletrying to produce and market sustainableagricultural goods.

However, yields lookto be solid."At least in southwest Nebraska, were seeingtremendous yields for the irrigated corn crop,"said Jon Holzfaster, a Nebraska Corn Boardmember and a farmer near Paxton. "Thedryland fall harvest in this area fell a littleshort. Its still reeling from last years droughtand short rain fall this year. In general, theirrigated crop for the fall harvest will beaverage to well above average."Holzfaster said hes about 25 percent donewith his corn harvest and a few late-seasonrains have held back his progress. However, hesaid most of the bean harvest is complete."Were kind of right in check with thesurrounding counties," the Keith Countyfarmer said. "Weve been in some fields thathave seen phenomenal yields, whole fieldyields. We did have some circles that we hadsome agronomical challenges. Those weak linksdefinitely showed up."And while there are a few pockets of groundin southwestern Nebraska that are stillconsidered to be under extreme drought,according to the Drought Mitigation Center atthe University of Nebraska-Lincoln, westernNebraska seems to be rebounding from lastyears exceptional drought."In the areas that were fortunate to pick upsome of that average rainfall, there were somefairly decent yields on non-irrigated farmground," Holzfaster said. "There were stillsome pockets that werent blessed with muchrain at all and those yields reflected that."Nebraska Corn Looks GreatOctober 31, 2013 Nebraska Farm & Ranch - Gateway Farm Expo Map Page 9UUSSHHwwyy 3300Ave. C5th Ave.Ave. IAve. N25th St.24th St.31st St.29th St.35th St.39th St.2nd Ave.8th St.4th St.Talmadge St.II--880056th St.11th St.8th Ave.Central Ave.UUSSHHwwyy 3300Buffalo CountyExpo Center1188RailroadRailroadGatewayFarm Expo4127519133102611202216261725248231519182114- Scrapers - Packers - Graders- Stalk Cutters - Bulk Seed Tenders308-293-120627th Street & Ave. N Kearney, NE54105SSeeee UUssAAttBBooootthh 441111 && 441122Scott Sweet 308-293-120627th Street & Ave. Ne Kearney, NEwww.sweetenterprisesllc.com54073 ComplimentaryDeluxeBreakfast ComplimentaryHigh SpeedInternet BusinessCenter Fitness Center Indoor Pool & Whirlpool In-roomMicrowave & Refrigerator In-room Coffee NewlyRemodeled$87.00105 Talmadge StreetKearney, NE 68847308.236.7500 Toll Free 888.525.8844KEARNEY308-237-4544ORIGINAL ROUNDCARRY OUT TOTALCHEESE, PEPPERONI, HAMBURGER, SAUSAGE SINGLE TOPPINGALL DAY, EVERY DAY!5173454067Gary Forbess 308-293-434719 W. 19th StreetP.O.

One Iowa pork producer was more than happy tooblige. Steve Kerns, who runs a family farm operationin Clearfield that has adopted mix and specialtybreeds, heard that Japanese grocery stores had aninterest in a pork product similar in quality toKobe beef.Kerns knew of a producer from WashingtonState that raised Mangalitsa, a breed thatoriginated in Hungary and Austria known for itsthick fat and dark red meat. Kerns purchased afew of the breeding stock of the producers herdnearly three years ago and the demand from high-end chefs for the fatty delicacy became apparent. "It takes an excellent chef to know how to workwith them," Kerns said. Chefs desire the pigs fat, which is used for lardand spreads and is rendered down intoshortening. "Its mono-saturated and has a low meltingpoint," he said. "Chefs dont want the pigs unlessthey have two or three inches of fat, which iscontrary to the pork industry standards."Recently, Kerns butchered and sold his firstpurebred pig just two weeks ago. Kerns said thepipeline for his high quality product has openedup to white tablecloth restaurants in large citiessuch as Chicago and Denver and major cities oneither coast.He mentioned that, at about 40 sows, hisoperation is now building a constant supply toharvest approximately 20 pigs per month."Were going to keep it about at that level for awhile," he said. "You start supplying too much,then your prices may go down."Kerns also mentioned that the pigs take sometime to process as they mature at 11 to 12 monthsold. He feeds them a special diet of corn andsoybean meal and then switches to barley orwheat towards the end. This process allows thepigs to develop the savory fat."If they grow too quickly, they arent as tenderand fat," he said.Because the pigs originated in Hungary, theywere housed outside, which allows the "wooly pig"to adapt to the Iowa winters.Recently, Kerns had the opportunity to samplehis product at a dinner in Orient prepared by chefKatie Routh. "She was one of the first chefs in Iowa to useMangalitsa," he said. "She did an excellent jobwith them." He noted that other chefs andrestaurants throughout Iowa have also inquiredabout his product, which pleased him."Its been surprising to find some local marketsin Iowa," he said.Demand for his pigs varies from cut to cut on theanimal. Some chefs request whole carcasses andwhile others request specific portions. A processorin North Carolina that won a national hamcontest a few years ago using Mangalitsa recentlyrequested hams from Kerns."They wanted our product, which is goodbecause sometimes the hams are the hardestthings to move," Kerns said. Although purebred Mangalitsa are highest endand most demanded product by top quality chefs,the Kerns operation has also experimented withcrossbreeding the Mangalitsas with Berkshires,another unique and quality breed. He said the crossbreeds, dubbed "Mangbos," areincreasing in popularity and produce a less fattycut. "We provide the Mangbos for the people thatdont want the extreme fat but want the marbling,coloring and flavor," he said.Iowa Pork Producer Offers High-end Pork From Unique BreedKristen Wyatt, The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD, Colo. Southeast Coloradofarmer Ryan Loflin tried an illegal crop thisyear. He didnt hide it from neighbors, and henever feared law enforcement would comeasking about it.Loflin is among about two dozen Coloradofarmers who raised industrial hemp,marijuanas non-intoxicating cousin that cantbe grown under federal drug law, and bringingin the nations first acknowledged crop in morethan five decades.Emboldened by voters in Colorado andWashington last year giving the green light toboth marijuana and industrial hempproduction, Loflin planted 55 acres of severalvarieties of hemp alongside his typical alfalfaand wheat crops. The hemp came in sparse andscraggly this month, but Loflin said but hesstill turning away buyers.Phones been ringing off the hook, saidLoflin, who plans to press the seeds into oil andsell the fibrous remainder to buyers wholl useit in building materials, fabric and rope. Peoplewant to buy more than I can grow.But hemps economic prospects are far fromcertain. Finished hemp is legal in the U.S., butgrowing it remains off-limits under federal law.The Congressional Research Service recentlynoted wildly differing projections about hempseconomic potential.However, America is one of hemps fastest-growing markets, with imports largely comingfrom China and Canada. In 2011, the U.S.imported $11.5 million worth of hemp products,up from $1.4 million in 2000. Most of that ishemp seed and hemp oil, which finds its wayinto granola bars, soaps, lotions and evencooking oil. Whole Foods Market now sellshemp milk, hemp tortilla chips and hemp seedscoated in dark chocolate.Colorado wont start granting hemp-cultivation licenses until 2014, but Loflin didntwait.His confidence got a boost in August when theU.S. Department of Justice said the federalgovernment would generally defer to statemarijuana laws as long as states keepmarijuana away from children and drug cartels.The memo didnt even mention hemp as anenforcement priority for the Drug EnforcementAdministration.Colorados hemp experiment may not beunique for long. Ten states now have industrialhemp laws that conflict with federal drug policy,including one signed by California Gov. JerryBrown. And its not just the typical marijuana-friendly suspects: Kentucky, North Dakota andWest Virginia have industrial hemp laws on thebooks.October 31, 2013 Nebraska Farm & Ranch - Gateway Farm Expo Page 13K, >>KKKK/E^dnppd.com | 877-275-6773 ^more farm electrical 51764See us atBooth #60KIRSCHNER IMPLEMENT:HOLCOMBDEALER & DISTRIBUTOR54124KIRSCHNER IMPLEMENT42185 Hwy 2 Ravenna, NE 68869800-652-1938 308-452-3254HOLCOMB SCRAPERSwww.holcombscraper.com500 Gallon Fuel Trailer750 Gallon Fuel Trailer750 Gallon w/Utility Box990 Gallon Fuel Trailer990 Gallon w/Utility Box400 Gallon Economy Fuel TrailerGateway SpecialsNew 1400N........................................................$37,000New 1200..........................................................$32,000New 800 ...........................................................$23,500For Strength and Reliability Second to None - See These Forced Ejection Scrapers at Your Holcomb Dealer Kirschner Implement.Most Trailers Available with D.E.F.

Omaha Avenue PO Box 936Norfolk, NE 68702-093654082 52367Noel Mues, Extension Educator, University ofNebraska-Lincoln Extension, Furnas CountyTurf areas are still in sad shape across theregion, and damage ranges from complete death ofturf to a significant loss of turf density on affectedareas. We are now out of the window for latesummer seeding. Dormant seeding is the next besttiming after late summer seeding for establishingcool-season grasses. Following is a summary ofpoints to maximize success of dormant seeding.Timing: Dormant seeding can be done any timeafter soil temperatures are about 40F in order toguarantee no germination until next spring.Seeding between Thanksgiving and St. PatricksDay is a good rule of thumb.Soil preparation: Though simply broadcastingthe seed and allowing it to work into the soilnaturally through frost-heaving can be effective,it is better to improve seed-soil contact withaerification, power raking, tilling, power-overseeding or some other form of cultivation. Wetor frozen soils will likely determine whichcultivation is best for each situation, butmaximizing seed-soil contact is essential forsuccessful dormant seeding.Species: Kentucky bluegrass or tall fescue workbest, but avoid perennial ryegrass since it maygerminate in a mid-winter warm-up only to die inensuing cold temperatures. Buffalograss can alsobe dormant seeded.Seed rate: The typical recommendation is toseed at 10-25 percent higher rates than normal toaccount for seed loss via erosion, animal feeding,etc. Seed Kentucky bluegrass at 3.0 lbs. per 1000sq. ft., tall fescue at 10 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft., andbuffalograss at 3.5 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. on baresoils. These rates can be cut by as much as onehalf if over-seeding into existing stands with thinturf.Mulch on bare soils: Mulch is likely notrequired, but may reduce potential erosion or seedmovement. A tackifier will be required on themulch to minimize wind loss during the winter.Hydroseeding can be used on bare soil if airtemperatures are warm enough. Erosion blanketsor sod should be used on highly erodible areas.Fertilizer: Starter fertilizer should be appliednext spring as the seedlings emerge. Apply 1.0 to1.50 lbs. P2O5 per 1000 sq. ft. depending on soiltest levels. This same fertilizer and same rateshould be applied again four to five weeks afteremergence and maybe again at eight to ten weeksafter emergence depending on the density of thenew stand.Irrigation: Dormant-seeded areas will needirrigation just like any new seeding. Irrigate asoften as needed to maintain moisture in the top inch of soil, which may mean irrigating once ortwice per day. Irrigate less regularly and in largervolumes as the seedlings establish. However,dormant-seeded areas may need irrigation allsummer as these relatively young plants will notbe mature enough to withstand drought stress.Mowing: Early mowing on any newly-seededarea encourages lateral spread and quick fill-in.On most areas, set the mower 10-20 percent lowerthan the regular mowing height for the first threeto five mowings to encourage the most rapid fill-in. Mow as soon as the first few leaves of theseedlings reach the mowing height and mowregularly thereafter (in spite of only apparentlyaffecting a small percentage of the plants) tomaximize fill-in.Weed control: Dormant-seedings will beemerging early next spring so most PREherbicides cannot be used over dormant seededareas. However, early weed control is critical tominimize weed competition and maximizeestablishment. In some cases where weedpressure is high, it is justified to apply herbicidesearly at the risk of turf damage. Even if damageoccurs, the remaining turf will likely recover andthrive in the absence of competition. Regardless ofthe product selected, be sure to refer to the labelfor specifics. Once the seedlings are mature enough, PREherbicides including dithiopyr, prodiamine, orpendimethalin can be applied, and this will likelybe at the approximate timing of the secondapplication in typical sequential applications ofPRE herbicides (mid-June).Improving Success of Dormant SeedingOnline Classifieds @ www.agstuff.comFREEOctober 31, 2013 Nebraska Farm & Ranch - Gateway Farm Expo Page 15Ag Equipment5HGHQLQJ(UJRQRPLFVto read more about the 2014 Cab go to: ETsprayers.com/newcab2014CABETsprayers.comh_]]_diW]$YecI_dY['/..The 2014 Apache Sprayers include..Jehgk[9edl[hj[Z"Fem[hI^_\jC[Y^Wd_YWb:h_l[JhWdic_ii_edF_lej_d]Page 16 October 31, 2013Nebraska Farm & Ranch - Gateway Farm ExpoDo you really want to get out and roll your own tarp?Call us so you dont have to!Serving you for 20 years!1841 Ave. H Kearney, NE308-237-2625centralhydrauliconline.comBuilt for Work54072Ostermeyer Equipment, Inc.Shelton, NE 308-467-234554168The VR1428 and VR2040 are designed to cover more acres in less time, keeping you on top andon schedule.

Ponds andreservoirs could help store water when the supplyis abundant, so it could be used in drier years, hesaid.Where there are joint ventures, that should bethe priority, he said.A new water-funding task force is trying to setpriorities for water conservation projects andstate funding sources, and then send itsrecommendations to the Legislature in December.Were not there yet, in terms of identifyingprojects and costs, said state Sen. Tom Carlson,the task force chairman. I think in terms ofdiscussion, I know were making some headway.There really is not too much argument over theidea that we do need a policy that will keep ussustainable with water.In July, the task force awarded a $400,000contract to a Lincoln-based engineering firm, tohelp develop a long-term plan for the state.Lawmakers budgeted $1 million for the task forcewhen they created it earlier this year.Carlson said residents in the past have overusedwater without regard for the long term. He hassaid he will likely push for a funding sourcebeyond the money available in the states generalfund.Nebraska is also trying to comply with theRepublican River Compact, a 1943 agreementwith Colorado and Kansas over water use in therivers basin.The agreement allocates 49 percent of theRepublican Rivers water to Nebraska, 40 percentto Kansas and 11 percent to Colorado. But Kansashas long accused Nebraska of violating thecompact by allowing farmers to divert more thantheir legal share of the rivers water for privateuse.The 34-member task force was formed earlierthis year. It includes state lawmakers, members ofthe Natural Resources Commission and appointedmembers who represent cities, sportsmen,irrigation and power districts, and farm andranching interests.The groups task is to rank the proposed projectsbased on which does the most to ensure water isused productively and benefits residents. It willalso discuss which proposals are most cost-effective, and whether the state should partnerwith the federal or local governments.NARD Says Water Supply Could Be Preserved Dennis Magee, The Waterloo-Cedar Falls CourierFINCHFORD, Iowa (AP) More happened inthe barn than just milking cows. At least BonnieAnderson recalls other activities. I remember sitting in the alley with a boyfriendin a thunderstorm and the damn thing got hitby lightning. It kind of ruined the moment, shesays. Bonnie was about 16 at the time. She is now 57,married, then divorced. Besides her parents,Wilbur and Dorothy Anderson, the family farmand its barn have been constants in her life. So watching the tired structure come downstirred strong emotions. It's like a death in the family, Bonnie says. Still noble in design, the barn long ago passedits prime. Eugene DuMond put it up in the early1900s to serve his race horses, a popular pastimewith a wider following in Iowa's earlier years. DuMond used 2-inch wood planks on the floor, acommon and smart choice during the era of realhorse power. An oversized opening with slidingdoors allowed wagons loaded with hay inside. Apair of gabled dormers with windows let light andair into the loft. A bit of gingerbread and white trim all aroundwas just for show. So were stained glass windowson either end of the lower level. That used to be a classy barn, Wilbur says. His grandfather, Gilbert Samuelson, bought theplace about a mile west of Finchford in 1911. Thenthe property went to Rob Anderson, Wilbur'sfather. The original house that witnessed Wilbur'sbirth in 1919 burned a little more than a decadelater. Wilbur and his young bride, Dorothy, movedonto the farm in 1946 but didn't claim ownershipfor another 13 years. Wilbur ran a dairyoperation. Converting the barn proved a limitedsuccess. It was the devil wasn't very handy, he says. Wilbur could milk 18 cows at a time buteventually accepted a job with the Black HawkCounty road department. Since his farm wasabout 200 yards inside Butler County and aresidency requirement applied, the family had tomove. They went the short distance to Finchford. Wilbur is now 94. Dorothy is 87. They turnedthe house and barn over to Bonnie in 1987. She explored options to save the barn, at onepoint inviting Amish craftsmen to assess thesituation. They came over to look at it and said, No way. Keith Oltrogge, an accountant by trade, is theIowa Barn Foundation's representative in BlackHawk County. The nonprofit organization worksto preserve the state's agricultural heritagerepresented in its barns. Oltrogge says the Andersons' story follows afamiliar line. Anymore, just to put a roof on a big barn ... boy,you can spend $20,000, he says. A lot of guys willtell you, That goes half way to building me a newshed. If each of Iowa's 99 counties loses on average 10barns annually, the figure gets close to 1,000 veryquickly. But in reality, Oltrogge isn't sure thecalculation is accurate. I don't know if it would be that high anymore because there just aren't that many out thereanymore, he says. Today, there is one less. Dave Zeien used an excavator to nibble at thenortheast corner, then tractored around to the farend. Every time he pushed on the barn, thestructure buckled a little more. When Zeien gotserious and crashed through the roof, chunks ofwall collapsed, too. Zeien neatly folded the landmark into itself. Hethen grabbed great scoops of debris, threw it intoa waiting hole and started a fire. Well it's history now, Wilbur said. Bonnie called a neighbor. It hasn't been 10 minutes and she's down. Non-farm families may not understand how abuilding an old building, a failing building can inspire so much passion. To the Andersons, itmakes perfect sense. This barn was the foundation of our livelihood.It supported the family, Bonnie says. When you've been around something that long,you've got to care, Dorothy adds. Bonnie and friends picked through the rubbleahead of Zeien's machine. They collected a fewboards, here and there, in particular those withfaded red paint. It certainly changed the landscape. ...

Always.www.chsagri.comMarita Placek, in The Norfolk Daily News and The Omaha World-HeraldNORFOLK Eleven youths with specialchallenges, five of them in wheelchairs, had thethrill of hunting and shooting their own deer thismonth.The hunt took place thanks to the Special YouthChallenge of Northern Nebraska, an organizationnew to the region.The group provides deer and turkey hunts foryouths who want to hunt but feel left out becauseof their special needs or serious medicalconditions. It provides training and equipmentnecessary to help these youths achieve their goalin hunting and the opportunity to make memoriesto last a lifetime."I admire Special Youth parents and what theyhave to deal with every day," said Keith Cline, theorganizations special director in charge of SpecialYouth Challenge of North Central Nebraska. "Iwas asked to help with a hunt in Iowa and cameback and shared my experiences with people likeR.B. Drickey and Wayne Miller, both of Spencer,and they went for it."This months hunt accommodated youths fromNebraska, South Dakota and Colorado.Cline said to get started, the organization wasassisted by about 15 churches. Camp Witness atLong Pine hosted the group, he said.Special Youth Challenge works with youths withall kinds of physical challenges."If they can move a thumb, they can shoot,"Drickey said.The group provides training and other aidsnecessary to help the hunters achieve the goal atno cost to the youths or their parents, Drickeysaid."We give them camouflage coats, boots, caps, ahunter orange hoodie and a Bible," he said. "Wealso purchase their hunting licenses for them."The rifles were obtained by the northernNebraska chapter through a grant from theFriends of the National Rifle Association. Therifles have a special adapter that allows an iPod tobe mounted on the scope. The iPod screen can beseen by both the hunter and the guide."The hunter does not have to hold the rifle. Therifle has two plungers and one trigger and is firedby electronic control. The guide has to push theplunger first and can cancel the shot, if necessary.Its a very safe system. The gun cannot be fired ifthe guide doesnt want it to," Drickey said."Sometimes its a challenge for a parent to allowtheir child to come on a hunt, but once they see itand realize the safety involved, they like it,"Drickey said.Special Youth Challenge has establishedchapters around the United States.
