Partnership formed to reduce Minnesota hunger USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) and Second Harvest Heartland food bank have teamed up to connect Min- nesota farmers with the regional food bank network. This partnership has the unique ability to reach individual farm- ers who may have excess produce that could be donated to food banks. Sec- ond Harvest Heartland, the largest of six food bank organizations serving Minnesota, has an efficient and effec- tive distribution system to get fresh produce from the farm to those in need. FSA has offices in 79 counties in Min- nesota where farmers regularly do business. The combination of an ex- pansive food distribution system and interaction with individual farmers will prove to be a highly effective way to increase the amount of food sourced di- rectly from farms. Second Harvest Heartland and five other Minnesota Feeding America food banks have teamed up to develop the "From Harvest to Home" initiative. The program collects locall3; grown, surplus produce from Minnesota farm- ers. The product is then distributed th(ough their network of agencies like food shelves, soup kitchens and a vari- ety of other programs that serve those in need including children and the eld- erly. FSA is proud to partner with Sec- ond Harvest Heartland and to assist American agriculture in delivering an abundant, safe, and affordable food and fiber supply while sustaining quality agricultural communities. Over the last several years, the food banks have collectively received and distributed more than five million pounds of produce through initiatives similar to From Harvest to Home. But while the number of pounds collected has increased, so has the need for this fresh, nutritious food. To help those in need information is available at your local FSA County Of- fice or you can visit the Second Har- vest Heartland website at * IMPORTANT .PROPERTY TAX HOMESTEAD NOTICE * *This will affect the amount of property tax you pay in 2012, and it may affect yoir eligibility for a property tax refund.

I Extension news Attend U of M Extension Cattle Feeder Days Dec. 5-8 University of Minnesota Extension will host the annual Minnesota Cattle Feeder Day program Dec. 5-8, 2011 at the following times and locations: Morris, Dec. 5, 5:30 p.m., West Central Research and Outreach Center Luverne, Dec. 6, 5:30 p.m., Blue Mound Banquet Center Tracy, Dec. 7, at 9:30 a.m., the Caboose Rochester, Dec. 8, 5:30 p.m., America's Best Value Inn (formerly La Quinta Inn) Topics include: Priorities that affect feedlot health, a top 10 list. Jeremy Schefers, U of M Veterinary Diagnostic Lab, sees first-tiand the effects of health problems in the feedlot. Schefers will incorporate his experience at the diagnostic lab with on-farm interactions with feedlot producers, nutritionists and veterinarians to make recommendations on what can be done to keep feedlot cattle healthy and profitable. Optimizing efficiencies in the feedyard. Chad Zehnder, Land O' Lakes Purina Feed, knows feedlot input prices are at an all:time high with no end in sight. Fortunately, even with high feed cattle prices, opportunities still exist to remain profitable in the feedlot business. Zehnder will explain how to remain profitable in an era of extremely high input costs. Feedlot facilities panel. Alfredo DiCostanzo from Extension's Beef Team will lead this discussion. With the unique feeding climate experienced in Minnesota and the upper Midwest, it is important to have feedlot facilities that allow for optimal cattle performance while maintaining a positive bottom line. Recent years have seen a renewed interest in confinement facilities of varying type, which has brought about questions as to ideal facility type and proper facility management. This panel of producers and industry experts will discuss different facility types and how they can best be utilized. Research updates from recent University of Minnesota feedlot research. Extension's Beef Team has been one of the most productive feedlot research groups in the country over the last few years, and will share new research along with ways that the information can be applied on the farm. Registration for this year's program is $35/person, and $20 for each additional person from the same farm or family. The registration fee includes a meal and all educational materials. Pre-registration is encouraged by contacting Grant Crawford at (320) 234-0441 or For information on Cattle Feeder Days or any other Beef Team program, please visit the University of Minnesota website at http://www.extension, or on Facebook at University of Minnesota Beef Team.
