  • Report shows more than 30% of Minnesota farmers lost money in 2016
    Posted by Mark Dorenkamp on March 28, 2017 at 9:39 pm

    A new report shows more than 30 percent of Minnesota farmers finished 2016 in the red. University of Minnesota Extension economist Dale Nordquist says the annual farm income analysis points to continued low crop and livestock prices as the primary factor. “Even with record yields, and obviously we had spectacular yields for the second year in a row, and again for the second year in a row that didn’t really translate into profitability for the crop producers in the state.” According to the study, the median crop farm earned about $46,000 dollars in 2016.

    Posted by Larry Lee on March 28, 2017 at 9:33 pm

    A dairy industry supplier says technology is helping producers monitor more of their cow’s activities. Ken Berberich from Afimilk tells Brownfield activity monitors have been a part of managing dairy cattle for nearly 20 years, but now, the technology can keep track of nearly every movement and help herd managers catch problems earlier.  “We can also record now off that same sensor if a cow stands up in it’s stall and lays down, and stands back up and lays down, and this is a sign to go check that cow probably for lameness because what it’s doing is it’s recording the cow is getting up and it’s not wanting to walk to go get water or go get feed.” Sensor technology is also telling producers what’s in the milk as it leaves the cow.

  • Democrat lawmakers want more oversight of animal antibiotics
    Posted by Julie Harker on March 28, 2017 at 9:32 pm

    A report by the Government Accountability Office says more information is needed to deal with gaps in oversight on antibiotic use in food animals. A letter from the lawmakers who asked for the study, all Democrats, has been sent to the acting deputy Ag Secretary at USDA and the head of the Health and Human Services Department asking for information about questions the GAO report raised. They want to know what is done with data collected on antibiotic use on the farm and in large-scale operations; what the USDA is doing to ensure veterinarians and vet students get appropriate training; and, how the FDA will make sure antibiotics now labeled for prevention won’t be used for growth promotion, since the labels are similar.
