Column by Alvaro Garcia, SDSU Extension Agriculture and Natural Resources Program Director & Professor When the first episode of Avian Influenza was diagnosed the week of March 1, 2015 in Minnesota, the diagnosis took everyone by surprise. The surprise among those of us associated with animal agriculture was primarily due to the fact that poultry production has always been the epitome of biosecurity. Visits to poultry farms are by appointment only and change of clothes and/or protective garments and disposable plastic boots are the norm. The first diagnosis in South Dakota took place the first week of April followed by nine additional sites in the same timeframe. Turkey farms were hit the hardest in both states. In April, officials identified a Cooper’s hawk with the virus in western Minnesota, which was the first known wild infection in the state. On July 10, 2015 the Minnesota DNR confirmed that a chickadee delivered to a wildlife rehabilitation center on June tested positive for Avian Influenza. For the first time Avian Influenza has been found in a songbird. So far, most detections had been in water fowl, which seem to be immune and thus, more likely to spread the virus. This has led to a concern of what might happen this fall when migratory waterfowl head south to their winter quarters. Economic impact Both eggs and turkey production make significant contributions to South Dakota’s economy. In 2014, the state’s laying hen farms produced 752 million eggs worth almost $63.3 million. The state turkey farms raised 4.5 million birds with a total value of almost $139 million. At the present time only one farm of layer chickens was diagnosed. As of the first week of June nearly half million turkeys have been affected on nine farms and nine different counties in South Dakota. Since Avian Influenza affected nearly 11 percent of the commercial turkeys produced in the state, the economic impact can be estimated at close to $15 million. To put this into perspective, Minnesota led the country in turkey production in 2014, with 45.5 million turkeys and an economic value of $866 million. As of early May 2015, the disease had been confirmed on 85 Minnesota turkey farms, resulting in the direct loss of nearly 5.7 million birds. Oddly enough this represents 12.5 percent of the turkey population in Minnesota a figure only slightly off the 11 percent losses in South Dakota. These dollar figures for bird losses in the state do not take into account the fact that the affected facilities will have to remain empty while they undergo a rigorous disinfection and cleaning process. An 11 percent reduction in the population of turkeys in South Dakota will surely have ripple effects. Reductions in farm supplies and feed purchases, and employee layoffs at farms and poultry processing plants will certainly affect local businesses. A 1.8 Reduction Factor The University of Minnesota conducted this year an emergency economic analysis and determined that this reduction in the local economic output from the poultry industry can be quantified by a 1.8 reduction factor. That is to say that the $15 million resulting from direct turkey sale losses could have a collective economic impact in all nine counties of $27 million. In its analysis, the University of Minnesota also found that each job lost in poultry, negatively affected 2.1 jobs in the state overall. How this outbreak will evolve over time, is any- one’s guess. The losses are substantial for South Dakota overall, as well as, for local businesses and communities that support this industry. The Avian Influenza outbreaks have shown that in spite of very stringent biosecurity measures adapted by the poultry industry, animal agriculture is still vulnerable to disease outbreaks. This time it was poultry, but there might be other instances in the future where other livestock species could be affected by disease. It is important to remain vigilant and report any suspicious animal health problems (farmed or wildlife!) to the proper authorities. In response to the outbreak, SDSU Extension is taking part of a multistate approach to provide research-based information and resources to families. The state is also very fortunate to have within SDSU the South Dakota Animal Disease Research and Diagnostic Laboratory which has been very helpful up to this point. This lab is one of fewer than 40 veterinary diagnostic laboratories in the nation accredited by the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians. The lab has performed Diagnostic Testing for Avian Influenza in over 5,000 samples in backyard birds, commercial sites and wild birds. This testing has been ongoing since March 2015 and occurs on weekends, holidays and evenings, plus during regular hours with emergency “on call” staff do the testing. The South Dakota Animal Disease Research and Diagnostic Laboratory consults daily with the Board of Animal Health in Minnesota and South Dakota and has tested samples in Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota. ?iGrow Liberate your Weekend!

NEW BROOKINGS, S.D. - Hilltop Dairy’s cow, WR-Hilltop Timber 12676, ranked first in the Home Bred & Owned (B&O) and fourth place in the Senior Three-Year-Old Cow categories during the 2015 Minnesota State Holstein Show held at the Nobles County Fairgrounds in Worthington, Minn., June 19 2015. WR-Hilltop Timber 12676 was selected from the 2,000 cows which call Hilltop Dairy home as the highest ranking animal bred and owned by Olga and Wilfried Reuvekamp. She produces 85 pounds of milk a day, was pregnant at first service, ranks 16 percent above herd average performance. The winning cow is expected to accumulate 34,530 pounds over 305 days in milk. The Reuvekamp’s experience showing cows began back in The Netherlands. The couple and their three children moved from The Netherlands to Elkton, South Dakota in 2006. This award is a reflection of farm management and employee motivation, said Maristela Rovai, SDSU Extension Dairy Specialist. “Hilltop Dairy took a major step in social responsibility a few years ago and their mission is employee’s satisfaction and the dairy operating safely and efficiently,” Rovai said. She explained that Wilfried is a 24/7 Farm Manager and based on his management practices. “Most South Dakota dairies are family operated and a sustainable way of farming,” Wilfried said. He added that he has a passion for raising good looking cows which are also high producers. He has worked hard to manage Hilltop Dairy as an integrated farming system: with functional installations, healthy and high producing cows, good standards for meeting product quality, land care and employee education and motivation. Along with her active involvement in the dairy, Olga invests in the local dairy industry. She serves on the AgriSafe board, a multi-function group that addresses best management practices for employee safety; and is the Executive Director of the Minnesota Agriculture & Rural Leadership (MARL). “Behind the prize there is a team where their trophy is the awarded cow,” Rovai said. “This prize reflects the commitment and involvement of Hilltop with their employees.” “We are all proud since all of us have been milking and taking care of her.”. It’s a result of our time, effort and passion for the work we are doing,” said José Cardenas and herdsman at Hilltop Dairy. Prior to the show, the Reuvekamp’s sent her to Zoellner Brothers in Groton, for training the cow to lead and pose for the show. ?iGrow “Full Service Farm Equipment” East Hwy. 50, Yankton, SD 1-800-827-9700 • 605-665-3872 sales@koletzkyimplement.com • www.koletzkyimplement.com Vacation Cars & Working Trucks 2013 2013 2012 2011 2011 Chevy Impala LT, remote start, 56K miles......$12,500 Chevy Equinox, AWD, highway miles..............$14,900 Ford Fusion SEL, V6, leather, white................$12,500 Chevy Impala LT, leather, moonroof...............$13,900 Chevy Impala LT, 45K miles, silver................$13,900 2011 2009 2009 2008 2007 2007 1999 Chevy Silverado C1500, W/T, Dark Gray........$12,500 Chevy Colorado, 4x4, 5cyl., auto, Reg. cab....$12,500 Chevy Colorado, Reg. cab, 4cyl, 76K miles....$8,900 Chevy Colorado LS, Aluminum Wheels, 67K...$8,900 Chevy Silverado LT, Reg. cab, Long box.........$9,500 Chevy Silverado LT, 4x4, red, Full Power.........$12,500 Ford F150, Ext. cab, V8, Clean......................$3,000 605-665-3720 • Yankton, SD 605-665-3720 • Yankton, SD Household and Collectible Auction Sunday July 26, 2015 The all-new LIBERTY Z is the first Scag lawn mower designed specifically for the needs of our residential customers.
