County news and photos at I ,h i i ii, ,i ,,,,,,i ihl, , ,h i National Bird Dog Circuit World Championship Challenge headed to Meriden this month by Clarke Davis Muddy Creek Game Birds, west of Meriden, will play host to a National Bird Dog Circuit World Champion- ship Challenge Oct. 25-28. More than 150 competitors and between 300 and 400 bird dogs are expected during the four-day event. "It's open to the public and spec- tators are welcome," said Andy Petesch, owner. Petesch will provide three field locations for competition that in- cludes pointing, flushing, top gun, doubles, and women's. Muddy Creek will also provide the 3,000 chuckers (a partridge) needed for the trials. The Outdoor Channel will be filming most days. Petesch believes his central loca- tion -- being in the middle of the United States -- was a big advan- tage in landing this event. "Hunters who stayed at the lodge also put in a good word for us," he said. Local spectators are asked to check in at the lodge, 8721 NE Brown Road, and they will be di- rected to the various competition sites. USDA announces supplemental revenue assistance payments sign-up period for 2011 crop losses Farm Service Agency Administra- tor Juan Garcia has announced the sign-up period for the 2011 crop year Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments program will open Oct. 22. Under the 2008 Farm Bill, SURE authorizes assistance to farmers and ranchers who suffered crop losses caused by natural disasters occur- ring through Sept. 30, 2011. "Any eligible producer who suf- fered losses during the 2011 crop year is encouraged to visit a local FSA office to learn more about the SURE program and how to apply," said Garcia. As of Sept. 30, 2011, the Depart- ment's authority to operate the SURE program expired along with four other, important disaster as- sistance programs: the Livestock Indemnity Program; the Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honey Bees, and Farm-Raised Fish; the Livestock Forage Disaster Program; and the Tree Assistance Program. Production losses due to disasters occurring after Sept. 30, 2011, are not eligible for disaster program coverage. To be eligible for SURE, a farm or ranch must have: At least a 10-percent production loss on a crop of economic signifi- cance; A policy or plan of insurance under the Federal Crop Insurance Act or the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) for all economically significant crops; Been physically located in a county that was declared a primary disaster county or contiguous county by the Secretary of Agriculture un- der a Secretarial Disaster Designa- tion. Without a Secretarial Disaster Designation, individual producers may be eligible if the actual pro- duction on the farm is less than 50 percent of the normal production on the farm due to a natural disaster. A "farm" for SURE purposes means the entirety of all crop acre- age in all counties that a producer planted or intended to be planted for harvest for normal commercial sale or on-farm livestock feeding, includ- ing native and improved grassland intended for haying. Producers considered socially dis- advantaged, a beginning farmer or rancher, or a limited resource farmer may be eligible for SURE without a policy or plan of insurance or NAP coverage. Farmers and ranchers interested in signing up must do so before the June 7 deadline. For more information, visit any FSA county office. Pork producers naturally safeguarding the environment by Jody G. Holthaus Meadowlark Extension Agent Livestock & Natural Resources Safeguarding the environment comes naturally to America's pork producers because they understand their inherent responsibility to pre- serve natural resources for future generations. Today, under the umbrella of environmental sustainability, pro- ducers have taken this public trust to the next level with their check- off investments in research into the four pillars of environmental sustainability--carbon footprint, water footprint, air footprint and land footprint. The U.S. swine industry produces pigs far more efficiently today than in 1959. The number of hogs mar- keted has increased 29 percent (87.6 million in 1959 to 112.6 million in 2009 after removing market hogs imported directly to harvest) from a breeding herd that is 39 percent smaller. The efficiency gain is even more impressive when measured against the total dressed carcass weight harvested. Dressed carcass yield leaving the farm has nearly doubled in 50 years from 12.1 billion pounds to 22.8 billion pounds. This increase in productivity has resulted in an increase of 2,231 pounds (2.5x) of carcass harvested annually per sow-year. Today, it takes only five hogs (breeding and market) to produce the same amount of pork that required eight hogs in 1959. A near doubling of pork output at the farm gate has only required a 25 percent increase in annual feed- stuffs. As a result, feed efficiency as measured over the entire population, including maintenance of the breed- ing herd, has improved 33 percent Jmtm 785-863-2520 independent PO Box 278 Oskaloosa, KS 66066 ANNUAL DINNER, BAZAAR & SILENT AUCTION Chicken & Noodles or Ham Dinners with dessert. Sat., Oct. 13, 2012 4 to 7:30 p.m. Church Basement 402 Liberty gTA Oskaloosa, Kansas KE ?UT AVAILABLE00 from 6.6 pounds of feed per pound of dressed carcass weight produced at the farm gate to just 4.4 pounds of feed. This improvement is attributable to many factors including increased average daily gain, dietary changes, improved feed conversion, a smaller breeding herd and fewer numbers of idle pigs in the breeding herd. Increased crop yields have resulted in a 59 percent decrease in the total amount of land required resulting in a 78 percent decrease in the amount of land required per 1,000 pounds of dressed carcass produced. This gain in efficiency, while primarily due to improved crop yields, is also a resul of by-product feed tse (eg. dried dis- tiller's grain solubles and soybean meal). Dietary changes based on im- proved feed milling and ration for- mulation have most likely played a role as well. Much like feed utiliza- tion, total water demand for animal consumption has increased only 11 percent from 32.7 million gallons in 1959 to 36.2 million gallons in 2009. This has resulted in water con- sumption dropping from 2.7 gallons per pound of dressed carcass to 1.6 gallons, a 41 percent improvement. Most likely this improvement is due to a reduction in the size of the breeding herd and animals going to harvest at a much younger age today than in 1959. The U.S. swine industry has man- aged to stabilize its overall resource demand over the past 50 years. This feat is remarkable because pork production, as measured by pounds of dressed carcass leaving the farm gate, has nearly doubled in that same period. What the swine indus- try has been able to accomplish very successfully over the past 50 years is to significantly reduce its environ- mentaimpact and natural resource use nearly 50 percent across the board per 1,000 pounds of dressed carcass produced. The insights and innovations found from this research will help producers maintain their role as leaders in protecting the natural re- sources they manage on their farms.
