"Thanks for listening as promise. Scott Pickett, the CEO for Michigan farm bureau joins Jerry and I today in our wjr, studios, so gentlemen, welcome. Thanks for having me. It's great to have you. I have to say now that you're on the board of the food bank council, it has been such a delight to hear from you very regularly and you know as part of the robust conversations we're having to make the dream a reality about a food secure Michigan and we just finished our strategic planning session. It was fascinating and so many great things to talk about. I hope we can pick on a few of those during the show, but before we get right into the deep end, remind our listeners a little bit about, you know, who Scott, why are you here? Well, I am blessed to work for the farmers of the state, so I work for about 40,000 farmers across Michigan. I'm blessed to work in an organization that's been around for over a hundred years. It is a farmer's organization, our board of directors, our president, or all elected farmers. And we work really hard to help our farmers have a better life. To have a better way of life. Farming has changed a lot in the last hundred years ago when most people worked on farms. Today, that's not the case. And it takes a lot of effort and time to explain, in some cases, farming. For my standpoint, it's not too hard. I live and work on a farm. My family's been on the same piece of ground for a 180 years. My kids will be the 7th generation to live out in that area. So my life is agriculture. I raise corn wheat and soybeans with my family and in beef cattle. So we have moms and babies walking around the pasture and right now they're a little closer to the barns because it's cold outside. But the farmers I work for agriculture in Michigan is very diverse. There's over 350 different types of crops and commodities grown in our state. Farms, I've got members that have 5 acres of raspberries and do very well. I have some of our farmers that have a thousand animals. And they need that to be able to scale to an extent to involve their family. It is a very changing a dynamic, very technologically driven industry. I don't think people understand. Our use of global positioning systems in our tractors are our use of drones and drone technology. We do that quite a bit to look at our crops. It is a very advanced agriculture, and I'm very, very proud to represent it. Well, Scott is great to have you and thanks for taking the time and thanks for serving with us on the food bank council of Michigan's board of directors. I guess that kind of makes both of you guys my boss, but I don't really want to remind you of that too much. It'll just send us off into are we really? When did we really sign up for that? More than anyone should have to bear for sure. But so I think I want to, as Jerry said, jump into the deep end of the pool here, and this is the conversation we've had a little bit, so kind of the state of food. And while the headlines may be have gone away a little bit, the war in the Ukraine, the aggression by Russia on to the sovereign nation of the Ukraine, has really sent not just ripple, but really tidal wave effects across the economy, but particularly the agricultural economy. Could you unpack that a little bit for us? I'll do my best. We've always had happenstances. Things happen in the world that affect our agricultural economy. There are a lot of production areas in our world that when something happens in Brazil to soybean production, it affects the way that we price our soybeans here in the United States. We are in a global economy. So Ukraine and Russia produce about one third of the world's wheat supply. Well, wheat in the United States, you know, we compete, but we're not at the levels of Europe and in the Russian states as well as Ukraine. So when there's a supply chain alteration, any place in the world, we feel that ripple. And when you talk about wheat and wheat production, if you are growing more wheat in our country, which we grow significant amount here in Michigan, when you need to grow more of that, you're growing less of other things. So wheat acreage will compete for soybean acreage, which eventually will compete for corn acreage. All of those things being influenced by a changing energy structure in our country. The ripple effects of the European Union talking about Russian oil and do they use it? Do they not? Natural gas pipelines being interrupted. All of that has a direct effect on agriculture. Today, we're spending over $5 a gallon on diesel to be able to fuel our tractors to fuel our farms. That's a dollar 50 more per gallon than what we paid just a year ago today. When you think about natural gas and petroleum movement around the world, those have a direct impact on our fertilizer prices. We use manures, just like we have for thousands of years to raise crops. But not every farm has livestock. And we use petroleum based fertilizers, nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus. Nitrogen based fertilizers tripled in prices. In some, in some cases, this last spring. Fell to your point when something happens on that affects the global agricultural scale. The ripple effects get felt around

"Of a deadly officer involved shooting that happened a week ago. Officers chased and killed 25 year old Jalen walker in a hail of bullets. He was unarmed. Police say he fired at them from his car before they chased him on foot. Last night, protests were sometimes volatile as CBS Ian Lee reports. Overnight, police fired tear gas protesters marched through the streets. During the foot chase, walker never fired a shot, but officers say they found a gun and loaded magazine in his car, an officer was heard on body camera video saying walker still had a pulse, medics tried to save him, but walker died at the scene. There was another deadly shooting. This one in Denmark, police say a 22 year old Danish man opened fire in a busy mall, killing three people and hurting four others. This man was there. At the time, I didn't think that those shots were actual gunshots because it's not something that you would imagine in a country like Denmark. It's pricier for all those 4th of July grilling ingredients CBS's map piper explains why. Inflation is certain to be an unwelcome guest at today's 4th of July cookouts. A recent survey by the American farm bureau of federation finds Americans will pay just under $70 for a ten person cookout that grocery Bill is up about $10 or 17% from last year. The farm bureau federation blames factors like ongoing supply issues and Russia's war in Ukraine. Russia claimed a key stronghold in eastern Ukraine, seizing the Luhansk province, one of two in the Donbass region. The BBC's Sarah rainsford is in key. Thrush has always talked about liberating the entirety of the Donbass region, the Ukraine would say occupying. And that moment has expanded as Russian forces look to press forward. They've already begun shelling very heavy shelling in slaviansk and also firing missiles, rockets at crema tours, certainly officials in slavyansk have said it's the heavier shelling that they've seen there for some time, the latest research on the monkey pox outbreak is raising concerns that some cases are being missed. CBS News correspondent, at least Preston, has more. New research on the monkeypox outbreak in the UK shows patient symptoms are different than previous outbreaks. The lancet infectious diseases study found patients had differences in symptoms including location of skin lesions and less tiredness and fever in this current outbreak more than 350 monkeypox cases have been reported in the U.S. Pope Francis tells Reuters

"And then secondly we need to go to the public with a convincing message And that's where build back better comes in Let's get past the top line numbers and the scoring and the political conflicts that anything like this inevitably involves Let's get past that and to what this actually achieves This is historic achievement It is going to make a big difference in people's lives and we need to figure out a way to bring that home Well congressman looking ahead not quite as far as the 2022 midterms but if this is going to get wrapped up the build back better agenda I guess the goal is this year You are an appropriate You also have to fund the government the next deadline is December 3rd There's sort of an unclear debt limit deadline that may be December There's defense authorization There's this you seek a China competitiveness Bill Can you take us through just briefly what December's going to look like and in particular on your end on appropriations Is there any reason to think there's going to be a spending deal or are we just going to rely on a stopgap for months and months and months Well you know in talking about the Biden agenda and Congress agenda you're right to include the budget for 2022 And that may go without saying but I don't know with all the focus on build back better and the infrastructure Bill and the relief bill the earlier very important relief bill post pandemic almost forget that we do pass 12 appropriations bills each year And I know for the bill that I preside over the transportation housing bill that Bill is a great down payment on Bill back better And it's very important to get it to get it through We passed it last summer Our Senate Friends didn't do quite as well So now we are confronted as you say with the question in December of whether we can get off of this continuing resolution which has kept the government open since the new fiscal year started October 1 whether we can get past continuing resolutions and actually put these bills into full force That's my hope that we can do that with some substantial number of those of those bills And congressman you definitely do have to know how much of this can we get done and these other things of course can complicate the picture And you do definitely have a busy December congressman I don't want to ask quickly before we get to December you'll be headed home next week to your constituents and they're going to be facing what the American farm bureau has showed as an increasingly costly Thanksgiving dinner Inflation is really hitting Americans What's your message to your constituents Well my message is that we take those kinds of day to today costs very seriously And we know that we know what's causing them It has to do with the pent up demand after the pandemic and the supply chain challenges that we're working on around the clock and that is that doesn't provide much comfort but it does provide an understanding that these are challenges that we are aware of and that we are addressing Certainly the build back better bill will ease a lot of these pressures For example on housing costs I worked on that directly I know that that's true But we're going to we're going to be working very very hard to relieve these pressures and to bring the economy back in other ways as well So every reason to express concern about this but not to not to give way to sound bites that offer cheap shots by way of explanation.

The local guys are the local the local warehouses or the local depots. So yeah we'll we'll take it. It's in our company policy. We'll put it on the truck and then it gets you know to. The next depot goes into the warehouse and somebody decides got that word on it. They don't like it and they shipped back. We had some samples we shipped out last week. That came back three times from different carriers decided. They weren't ship it so there are still a lot of struggles that we concur every day in this industry. Things you don't think about. I mean you're investing a lot into this. Obviously when you invest something you want to ensure it Melissa is telling us about how you guys got your insurance policy. Yeah she's probably referring to a farm bureau actually wrote their first policy on insuring our facility our machinery operation at the processing facility so they've been fantastic to work with. They've got some really open minds and and really want to move forward. And and i think they must see the potential in the industry that if they become you know one of the first or somebody that will you work with these companies in the industry that they can get jump start and he also forward on insurance company so kansas farm bureau and for people that don't know farm bureau's generally are also insurance companies So kansas farm bureau is the first one to do policy for him farm in the country.

Six four billion dollars up twenty eight percent from last year you mef economist. Aaron borer says the beef export. Numbers are incredibly encouraging. Especially because of the on again off again. Nature of the food service sector in the largest overseas market consumer demand for. Us beef even win.

In both japan and taiwan she says exports for just the month of june total one. Hundred twelve thousand two hundred metric tons of forty two percent year over year more added pork. Demand has been very strong this year as well and much of that growth has taken place outside of china. Agriculture secretary townsville sack drought-stricken areas in western minnesota last week. He says farmers expressed to him. Their concerns regarding relief programs from the department of agriculture. Obviously concerned about the drought. And the need for as much assistance and flexibility as possible whether it's saying grazing on syrupy land or whether it's livestock forage program released to purchase forge the exists or just hollow water and enter. Cs for for my assistance. And help i think a recognition that this is going to be the kind of thing have to confront more frequent basis and baking sheet. I suppose need to do what they can to help and assistance as mentioned. Usda is allowing eligible farmers to in conservation reserve program acres who may also be eligible for the livestock forage program but are limited in what they can harvest in that case on the problem is that these terms are not only created by regulation. But they're also pretty stanching. We'd have to take what and see whether or not we can create the kind of flexibility where people are receiving the help that they need without necessarily creating a situation where people are sort of double dipping in creating and being compensated for the same lost twice. And that's the key is to make sure we're not doing that. Why stewards of taxpayer money. But at the same time confided to help and assistance producers communes again that's agriculture secretary. Tom ville sack earlier this week. I've spent time at dakota festive mitchell. South dakota one of the many topics during the show was the kennel. Markets the direction of the kanta markets. And can the capital markets. Be fixed as part of a panel discussion moderated. We had scott vander wall with the american farm bureau and south dakota farm bureau. President we also had eric jennings with south dakota cattlemen's association and brett kinsey with our calf. Usa i talked with brett after the panel discussion and got his thoughts on where the cattle market stand. Here is that interview panel. Discussion here at dakota fest. And we're talking about the cattle markets. And i know there's a lot of issues right now in cattle country that we're facing i mean you know one of the big things we talked about here packer margins and looking at that whole situation talk about just some of what you took away from the panel discussion here and some of the things that That are cattle Men and women are facing right now. Well i think that that we're all that we have a universal need of a market. You know we need a functioning competitive market so that we can get our do return of the value that we create you know. Beef is such a big part of south dakota and surrounding states and we're facing drought and then you add onto that these market problems that we've got and i guess i. I hope the message of today as i sat with south dakota cattlemen's and farm bureau is that we're trying to get along and we're trying to go forward together we're challenging one another but we know that it'll take all of us to really get something done because it's it takes a lot of oars in the water rowing together to get anything through the slop of washington. Dc so you made the comment that You know some disagreements on the panel today but for the most part you said ninety five percent you know most of the groups. The only mentioned farm bureau. South dakota cattlemen's are calf. You agree on things. It's it's just that kind of that five percent and it's you know you alluded to it. Working together is going to be about the only way to really get something done at this point. You know we look at the packers and stockyards act. And that's something that it's like okay. Are we going to enforce that or not. Or what are we going to do. But it all comes back to working together. Doesn't it. well it does. And i don't think i look. It's my sincere hope. That working together doesn't mean that one of us concedes or all of us concede to the least common denominator. Because it's easy i. I hope that working together means that we can challenge one another to get to. What's really right because things have really come come a gentleman and the audience said strike while the irons hot thing things really have come to such a degree that everybody realizes that there's a problem and so i hope we can challenge each other with a smile on her face not because these issues are light but because these are the times we live in. And we've got to find a way forward. We've got to find a way through it and we've got a we have to be able to be soft enough to get together and hard enough to hold the line and poke holes in each other's ideas so that we really do put forth the best idea in the end and that's more than money or power you know. We should in this country able to determine right and wrong and i guess. That's my goal. When i know as well there was a lot of discussion about a different bills. That are out there right now. Senator grassley senator fisher And a lot of discussion about things that you know. Maybe there to blanket or things that A lot of folks don't agree upon. So i mean you talk about working together and i know you mentioned this a few times to folks the panel said hey call your congressman call your wimp congresswoman in washington. Dc to let them know what's going on because you know otherwise we're looking at these bills. Where a lot of folks. Maybe don't agree with everything that's in them. Yeah i mean it's just it's just paramount. It means more when you get involved personally mean it's it's It's a learning curve but a lot of this stuff is an incredibly complicated. But it's we. We have to have the average american average. I'll say that with their quote. There's no such thing as average. But we've just got to have real americans involved in this and if you've got something to say you've got to say it we part of getting up on these panels as you can't be afraid of getting proved wrong because even if you get proved wrong you've learned something in that pursuit and so i just. I do challenge people that congressional switchboard number two. Oh two two two four thirty one twenty one it will. It'll pipe you through with the props to any congressman and senator in the united states of america. And you just have to let them know that real americans are out here. Real americans are interested and we want to get something done because that creates the energy behind all of these ideas that we're talking about and again that's comments with brett kenzi. The region three director for our calf. Usa talked with him earlier. This week at dakota fest. After a great panel discussion between him and the south dakota farm bureau american farm bureau as well with scott.

I have tawny to do the right thing. And he did. And he's doing the right thing so get on. After insurance companies the allstate's the safe does the right. You know the state farms the farmers. I get after them Because you know the the sad thing is they don't allow those adjusters to do the right thing it is. Everybody thinks well. My insurance company cares about your agent might care right but your claims office can't or they don't keep their jobs period period. That's the way it is with. I would say ninety five percent at one of the things. I'm fired up. The most about is the. And i'm i'm gonna come back on i'm gonna keep harping on this photo estimating When your insurance company tells you to take a picture and then they're going to have the money in your account that afternoon. It is a very bad thing. I'm also seeing that. Because i i look at my market. I fixed cars. That's what i do right been. I've been in business. I've owned that place since eighty seven and so we. We have stood the test of time because we care right absolutely care. But i i look around. Tanner and i look at other websites of these. Like these big consolidators right and you see them actually promoting this nonsense of sunday's a picture and we'll write an estimate. Know how you can't do that. Why are you. Why are you making this a reasonable thing because no one can write an estimate from a picture. It can't happen there. Are things in life that you have to do in person and getting an accurate estimate on your car is one of them and if anybody tells you or tries to sell you on the fact i mean we can look at a picture and say hey i think but right. That's all you can do well. In determining the value of things right now too is something that has been so. I just had a. I had a buddy that went is going through something like this. You know he. He got an accident they told us pick up and talking with the insurance agency and this he's got a great insurance agent and ended up for him yeah absolutely and he He said look. You can kelley blue book this thing and you know it's it's probably gonna come back at eighteen. You know maybe seventeen thousand dollars. He said but look at the used pickup market right now and what they did. This guy went. And i can. I mean steve baer insurance bear insurance out in wiggins and he said well. You know what i'll do is i'll run a nationwide search for similar pickups and the average price now what kelley blue book booked at a at like eighteen thousand the lowest one he could find. There's only nineteen totally came back. The lowest one was like twenty four thousand dollars and they said he would pay down for for rights. The insurance pot lot of people don't know this and i'm glad you bring this up because that's that's another place. I get really fired up. When i see insurance companies Do a market analysis right. What the insurance policy says is that it will either pay to repair your car. Back to pre loss condition or pay up to the actual cash value. Yeah that's what is the actual act. Actual cash value is willing-buyer-willing-seller in an open market. Right and so how you arrive at that number. Is you find comparable cars and you know if like you said if it doesn't it they don't oh you book value. They don't owe you what you think it's worth. Ao you and you get that by finding other vehicles and if those were twenty four thousand one could assume yours. Do your research folks entrust your neighbor. Well some of your neighbors. Along the way mike. We got off on a tangent. We need to get a break. We'll come back on.

But it's actually a little more expensive this year and they say from compared to 2019 food prices are up. 8% 8% 2019. But they say it's up 16 cents compared to last year.

"Stresses in the AG sector and economic effects from the Covid 19 pandemic have put a strain on farmers in ways that haven't been experienced in years. If ever Recently, AG lenders reported that just under 51% of their agricultural borrowers were profitable in 2020. The decline of 6% points from the prior year. About half of the lenders, 49% said. They don't expect borrow or profitability to improve. In 2021 respondents expressed the most concerned about the grain, dairy and cattle sectors. Our guests to hash out these findings and an outlook for this year and beyond. Is the president and CEO of Farm Bureau Bank Will Heilmann will? Thanks for being with us. We'll really glad to be here. So of course Farm Bureau has been around for a long time. Ohio Farm Bureau celebrated 100 years a couple of years ago, and people know it very well. But maybe not have heard of Farm Bureau bank. Tell us about Farm Bureau bank how long it's been around and what you're all about. Sure, I guess a common question I get everyone's heard of Farm Bureau and no one's heard of Farm Bureau bank. We've been around about 20 years. So obviously not as long as many of the state organizations that we were founded by a number of different state Farm bureau is about 20 years ago because we really saw a need just like farm bureaus that have helped get into the insurance business of help get another member benefits really solid need that. Rural America was having challenges getting some basic financial services, and we reform to really help farm Bureau members more with their personal financial business. You see farm very You think we're probably out there doing that production loans. There are folks that can do that farm credits really good at that. There are a lot of local banks that are really good at taking care of your production operations were really there to take care of your personal business. So how do you How do you finance that pickup truck? How do you get a credit card? We do a fair amount of farm equipment, lending things of that nature. Um and what we've really found as banks continue to consolidate. Particularly in a small town. It's difficult, you know, I grew up in a small town and middle Missouri. The the banker was sort of the pillar of the community and those pillars are missing and we really strived to understand small towns understand what number of funds they need and help them. Get that personal service that you may not get from your your big national bank that you're dealing with these days. You know, we talk an awful lot about member benefits at Farm Bureau. You know the membership alone of what you get as far as Work on the policy front and representation at the local state national level is well worth it. But on top of that, you get discounts on new Ford vehicles. You get discounts on case ih, tractors and so on and so forth, Hotel stays rental cars, and the list goes on and on. If you're a farm Bureau member, how is working with Farm Bureau bank different than working with other banks? Do you see some of those added benefits as well? Well, absolutely. We really try to do things that benefit the primary members and our relationship with Ohio was a new relationship, and we're just getting started some of those benefits. But the first thing that we really do is the farm Bureau bank member rewards credit cards, so a lot of credit cards have rewards. They tend to be airline Miles, which, if you're someone like me that flies around the sea Farm Bureau's they're really valuable. But a lot of farm Bureau members would really like that things they use every day. So we give you, um, points back on gas, groceries and dining. So you essentially get 2% back on those purchases because those are things everybody uses. Every day, and then you actually can get your memberships. Dues paid in the Ohio Farm Bureau based on use.

Youth Water filed a final Waterfowl day this season. There's some veterans involved in that today, too. So if you're headed out for water fathers this morning, we'd love to hear from you. It's cold out there, but not as cold as it has been. Our number is 4 10 92266 81 here from the kid's going waterfowl hunt. Today we'll hear from the vets and we want to hear from anybody who's helping Set the decoys or, you know about the birds or call whatever that might be. We were glad to talk to you and find out a little bit about your last adventure of the year here. For 10 92 66 80 lot of stuff going on. Ah lot of stuff going on within the department natural resource is as far as fisheries is concerned. And in particular, of particular concern to me and should be to you if your deer hunter is house Bill 5 94. Now, when the farm bill gets behind a deer with farm Bureau gets behind a dear bill, you know that that's uh, that's not looking good. So here's what 5 94 will do. In. Ah, Thumbnail. Remember the venison donation program? We're hunters were paid $50 if the deer was donated to Ah, Food banking and Randall County. Yes, let's expand that statewide. No. That's what the bill says. The bill establishes that the prohibition against selling offering for sale, bartering or exchanging dear taken from the wild does not apply to venison from a lawfully harvested white tailed deer that has donated to events in donation program administered by the county in which the deer was harvested for processing and distribution to a food bank. Goodbye. Farmers and hunters feeding the hungry. Your program has just been wiped out if this bill passes Here cause an average of $50 per acre of crop damage to Maryland crops. I don't know where they get that figure. You know the far this is from the farm Bureau newsletter $50 per acre of crop damage to Maryland crops. I'd like to see that really proven I'd like you see, I'd like to show me how you arrived at that number. So on a 300 acre farm. If 200 acres were planted, that would be $10,000 in damage to a soybean farm. Maybe. Cornfield. Maybe, but I seriously doubt that Zinni number who came up with the number. That's my question. The farmer receives no repayment for this economic loss. Really most heavily. The most heavily subsidized group in Maryland. And you can find that Maryland pays out about all. Oh, I think 27 to $30 million a year and crop damage on duh. Crop damage reimbursement for insurance. And I know this because we've been involved in this fight before but has to foot the cost to have the deer processed in's required to either keep the meat to donate to a food bank. Well, it's not quite what they do with dear that air shot under management permits. But we won't get into that. This bill does two things. It allows a farmer or hotter than the ability to recoup the cost. This is so poorly written, recoup. Let me let me read this paragraph Christmas. See if you can find any errors. Okay, okay. Here. This is from the newsletter American Farm Bureau. Your cousin. Average of $50 slash Acre of crop damage to Maryland crops. The farmer receives no repayment for this economic loss. A farmer is allowed to harvest dear under a deer management permit, but has to foot the cost to have the deer processed. And is required to either keep the meat to donate it to a food bank. This bill does two things. It allows a farmer or hunter that ability to recoup Are he Hyphen C 00 p The cost of harvesting and processing a deer that they donate to a food bank. Okay. The key word there is that they donate the keyword is if they donate it to a food bank. Secondly, it helps provide a high quality lean protein source for food banks around the state. I will tell you what will happen to this. I will tell you exactly what will happen to this if this bill passes in a legalized the commercial sale venison. It's not going the food bank Okay, It's not the farmers will organize. They will get a group in their county or their region. They will put together processing plant they will take his much of the Venice into the processing plant is possible. And they will sell the remains to some pet food company somewhere. And the hungry people in Maryland will not benefit from this program. Once you open that floodgate I've said it when the commercial sale venison came up to the General Assembly. It was part of my testimony. And I'll say it again today. The farmers want all the dear dead. And if the hunters Think that they're going to get paid for killing dear. There's going to be those people. With a Hmm. Shall we say borderline code of ethics that will go out and kill deer for money?.

"This week talking about the farm economy and getting a perspective from the AG banker visiting with President and CEO Will Heilmann from Farm Bureau bank as more and more people, especially here in Ohio, With the start of this relationship between Ohio Farm Bureau and Farm Bureau bank begins to unfold, You're gonna be meeting Ah lot of new perspective clients from the Buckeye State when you look That's starting that new relationship with a farmer and a farm operation. What do you look for him? You mentioned looking back and finding out the track record. But what exactly do you dig into? And what kind of paperwork And what kind of information do you need in order to get that ball rolling? Yeah, well, the way to get started with a bank is the really developed a relationship. They want to get to know your banker and some people go well, you don't have branches in Ohio. Where do I get to go down and meet a banker and One thing that Cove it is helped. A lot is we can have conversations like you and I are having right now We're on the radio. We're actually looking at each other on video or not in the same studio, and it has helped us develop some of those relationships and we develop a lot of relationships over the phone, and we just want to understand. Understand your operation. So how long you been in business? And if you're getting started, you may have a new business. But we're working on the family farm and you're going out on your own. Did you have a experience? We want to understand that you This'll don't have a dream, but you have some some solid plans to make that dream work. Now, if you truly you're starting out the very beginning to be difficult to get bank credit because bank credit is given to folks who have experience and paying those loans back up. Fortunately, USDA does have some Programs for her folks. They're trying to get started in the business, and those were probably the first things to look at. But after you've gotten started the bisque everyone to just pay your bills. The more you have a history of paying your bills, even if it's your personal credit card, your personal lot alone if you've shown that you can pay Goes back is gonna certainly give you a leg up. We're getting new credit in the future. What your outlook for agriculture for 2021 beyond well, we're somewhat optimistic As we talked about earlier. We think some of the payments are going to go away so overall incoming They come down, But I think all of us would rather have more income from our operations. And it looks like commodity prices are starting to improve a little bit, and that that certainly helps. Hopefully A sweet talked about earlier we get we get through this coded piece. I think the economy could get really boom. Hopefully, trade will continue to improve. That obviously is a huge impact, too. The farm economy in this country is to continue to get more of our products sold overseas and well, there's been a change of administration. I think we believe they're committed to improving trade a swell and we should continue to see those improvements. Before I let you go. We talked a lot about agriculture. But as you mentioned you work with credit card world you can finance vehicles and tractors and I'm guessing homes as well. If someone's looking to do something like that, and money is relatively cheap right now, we have seen the lowest interest rates we have in some time in agriculture. We know the reason the cost of corn or soybeans go up and down. We understand. All the factors to go into marketing all the commodities that we grow and raise across Ohio and across the country when it comes to interest rates, what causes them to fluctuate? And are we going to see much of a bump either way in the coming months or years? Yeah, well, interest rates generally move with the economic cycle. So when we're in tough times like we are now rates generally go down, and when times get better, they tend to go up because The Federal Reserve is lowering rates to, um stimulate the economy, and that starts to raise them to make sure we don't get overheated with inflation and so forth. We think rates are going to stay relatively low sometime with over reserve is pretty much said they don't intend to raise rates for some time. And if you're someone who borrows that's a great time. To be in the market. Refinance your mortgage. If you haven't already you actually can refinance your car. People don't realize that a lot of the business we're doing right now, if you bought a car two years ago. You may go to refinance it and actually save a little bit on your car payments. Now, if you're retired and are saving of you're probably not real excited about what those CDs or you'll be. These days, and that's just sort of the challenge in the banking world when borrowers were happy savers or not, and vice versa, But we expect rates are going to stay relatively low for the next 12 to 24 months. But after that, you know who knows what's gonna happen. This is the first time that our listeners are Ohio Farm Bureau members may have heard about Farm Bureau bank. How can they find out more? Well, The easiest way is just go Toe Farm bureau bank dot com or it's actually far bureau dot bank as well and you can find all the information you would like right there. And then all of our phone numbers are listed on that website. And you can get in touch with folks that can.

But we have our challenges and let's learn more from Brian. Miyamoto, Hawaii Farm Bureau. Thank you so much for taking the time, Brian, how you Good. Happy New Year, Rick. Thank you for inviting the oId farm. You're back on your show really appreciate the opportunity to talk more about agriculture. It's absolute pleasure. I'd like Brian to have you introduced yourself for folks who may not have Been with us before and also the mission of the Hawaii Farm Bureau, please. Absolutely. Brian Miyamoto, the executive director of the Holy Farm Bureau Federation, We are are a general agricultural nonprofit organization been in Hawaii since 1948 our mission, plain and simple. We represent farmers and ranchers statewide. We are the voice of agriculture. We advocate for Our egg producers at the state Capitol Widow administration. We also have 11 county chapters scattered across the state and they advocate With the county councils and the mayor's and were affiliated with the American Farm Bureau, six million farm family members nationally across off 50 States and Puerto Rico. So again, where the Voice of agriculture kind of the Chamber of Commerce for Agriculture, the Union for Agriculture can you share with us US Some information pertaining. To the size of our agricultural community here at home, approximate number of perhaps farmers, commercial growers and distributors. To give us a perspective of the size of our industry at home. Okay. Well, according to her last census of agriculture, we've got a 73 100. Farms throughout Hawaii's spawn of $600 million industry as far sails off, so you know, we've got a lot of farms. We just need to increase our capacity. Our production. You know, the pandemic is really highlighted some of the gaps as far as, um, the distribution of food on our industry, so, but it's also brought a lot of attention to Agriculture, you know, with tourism. As our main economic driver really suffering, you know, there has been a desire of their to diversify our economy and agriculture always is one of the industry's that's discussed a lot. So we're hoping That, um, you know, we could take advantage of the momentum. There's a lot of support out there during the pandemic. We're still independent for local Agriculture products, and we hope that will continue. It has been profound with many businesses, including your industry, Brian What has been the infliction upon agriculture of this pandemic. Could you give us perhaps before and after? Ah, the pandemic began. You know, they said we go about 7300 Farms. Um, the pandemic. We haven't heard of any Pacific Farms or groups of farms that have shut down do the pandemic. But they all suffered. You know, estimates are anywhere from 40 to 60% loss of sales due to the pandemic. As an industry were impacted by many other industries saw, you know mentioned already that tourism industry our restaurant industry that is still suffering that are farmers and ranchers and fissures really depend on Um You know, with just these two initials that shut down that resulted in alarm. Oh, sales. They either sundown or wiped out some of the markets for our farmers. As we discussed earlier, even farmers markets has shut down. You know, cruise ship stopped coming in. Um Education Department of Education, our farm to school program without the kids in school. That program essentially one away, um, even our export industry because the airline industry Had shut down or skilled back a lot of work that sport crops no longer had fights to go on. So on with the pandemic, I mean, 60% of your sales. You know, that's that's horrible. That's terrible. But there were some innovative services and ideas that came out, you know, RCSC programs. Really skilled up farmers. Markets that remain open got little bit busier. And then some were able to reopen and as we discussed earlier with the farm bureau are our farm to car program in other Home delivery or online farmers. Market type programs really helped the small farmers cannot Stain. During the pandemic, but our medium to large farmers really struggled. And that's where the partnerships across the state with the food banks, you know, really helped and other nonprofits. It really went out of the way to support Farmers and ranchers by buying local Also providing food for many, many residents than that needed. The systems were talking with Brian Miyamoto, of course he D with Hawaii Farm Bureau. And I'm very thankful that you could join us for a period of time to help us understand thean importance and not only relevance of agriculture in our community, but also with the opening day of legislature, Brian What?

"FARMING Ohio Farm Bureau together with farmers Our Ohio Weekly with Ty Higgins continues after this Columbus is news radio 6 10 w T. V N Another round of covert 19 checks will be going out to the vast majority of American households very soon. The $900 billion covert stimulus package includes up to 13 billion and funding that directly benefits agriculture and that help reaches even farther across the farm spectrum in the bill passed earlier this year. My entire Higgins joined by a Brandon Curran. He is the senior director of State National Policy with O F B F Hi, Brandon. Hi. Hi. How are you doing? Fine. You've been following this very closely over the past week, and I mentioned that there are some sectors of agriculture that will see some support This time around that maybe didn't see it the first time. What sectors are they? Yeah, I think that's probably the most important component to the bill. To be really honest with you, Ty. I mean, if you look at, um you know, livestock producers in particular, I think are really going to see benefit here that they hadn't seen an earlier phases. There's been a lot of coverage in the news about disruptions in the supply chain. We all know that And for those producers when those backups have occurred, they really, you know, felt the impact of and so if you have producers who have felt the impact in terms of Of having to depopulate. You know their livestock not being able to move them to the market. There are provisions in this bill. They're going to allow them to recover up to 80% of the market value for those animals, So that's gonna be a tremendous help for producers who found themselves in that situation. Similarly way you know, have many operators across the spectrum do work on contract on before you know those growers who experienced this Russian contracting. Their contract was canceled when the contract was delayed because of those logistics supply chain issues that were created in the middle of the covert crisis. They're also going to be able to seek some relief up to 80% of the losses that they incurred. From those canceled contracts or delay contracts earlier in the year, so there's air. There's a huge benefits again, Both of those examples covered in this bill that weren't addressing all in earlier release packages. Mentioned that food supply issue we saw earlier in the year and and Gary was one of the first ones that we saw have issues at the front end and the back end of the food supply chain. Nearly $1 billion of this bill going to support a dairy donation program and supplemental dairy margin coverage payments for small and medium sized producers across the country when you look at those, especially in non specially crop growers, they got some things earlier this year in that first bill. Well, that Support Continue? Absolutely. You know, we see in this bill some additional supplemental payments for that seat hat program. Um, earlier they were, you know, growers were able to, um, recover, you know 80% of their losses. This is just gonna be a straight on a per acre payment for in this bill, so a $20 per acre payment. For those growers. That and the situation, so that's you know, continued support from Congress. You have clearly showed that they recognize you know how big of an impact the pandemic has had on on agriculture and Grover's Cross country, the correlation between the issues you and I were talking about in this bill, and the priority issues that came out of our annual meeting just a couple of weeks ago are amazing. We talked about the Meat processing and the livestock producers seeing trouble dairy producers on one of the policies that came out one of our priority issues for 2021 is rural broadband. What are we seeing in this bill as far as that's concerned Yeah, a lot of important work being done in this bill for you know, just rural communities in general, which we obviously supported Farm Bureau. $7 billion will be allocated in the relief package for broadband development, including 300 million for rural broadband on specifically 250 million for tele health issues. I know that that's something that people across rural Ohio have continued to be concerned with. Access to broadband being able to, you know, take advantage time. Health. Certainly in the wake of covert has become top of mind for a lot of Ohio. And so I think that's really important work that that farm here is very supportive of Finally, we thought very hard earlier this year for the P p p the Paycheck protection program. Many Ohio Farm Bureau members took advantage of that in the first bill is that part of this new package as well? Absolutely. There's gonna be another infusion into the p p p p program. I think this is really important as well for rural communities and are partners, not just farms who can absolutely take advantage of this, But you know our partners across the food spectrum. If you look at the situation that we are partners, for example in the restaurant industry are facing. It's really just dire and certain in certain circumstances. And so a new $284 million infusion into that. Program will provide a significant level of help for small businesses across the spectrum, and there's more focus on small businesses. So they've reduced the size of the number of employees that they're targeting this time around out of 300 employees and you know, so they're trying to target the smaller mom and pop operation small business in particular who are really in need right now. Brandon current, a senior director of state national policy with Ohio Farm Bureau. He's still going through this bill and finding out all those little nuggets that could help the agriculture sector. Of course, at the national level. The American Farm Bureau also going through this and they'll be updating us and we'll be updating you on. You can actually click on the link on this post, and you can get all the details from the American Farm Bureau federation. Braden Appreciate your time. Thanks for the insights. Thank you. This week is a big week for from you remembers all across the country and it's gonna be a little bit different than the usual American Farm Bureau annual convention. As this year's convention is going virtual with that said, it means everybody involved in farm bureau and those curious about the organization can join in for free and see what.

"On our postgame coverage of Kentucky's overtime win down and start Bill beat Mississippi State 90 to 86 back to back top 15 wins for the Wildcats this week to start conference plays. They beat Arkansas Thursday. And today it was 12th ranked Mississippi State, 90 to 86, both of Mississippi. State's losses now have come and over time they lost its South Florida and today to Kentucky at home. It is time to name our defender of the game presented by Can Kentucky Farm Bureau insurance in our defensive player of the game. Oh, man, could we, uh, we could take our pick from here. Edwards had two blocks. Patterson had two steals that led into to direct layups to help Kentucky. Kiki McKinney came up with two steals. Howard had a block. And a steel to go along with 10 rebounds, and I've got to give it to Ryan today for her efforts. She had seven of her 10 rebounds were on the defense of end of the floor. She had a block and a steel in 37 minutes. Ryan is our UK defensive player of the game presented by Kentucky Farm Bureau insurance big on commitment. And one other player that should be mentioned along with the defensive stats was Olivia. Oh, and she had four defensive rebounds to go with her six points today, and Olivia is one of those players that she'll show up in the stat sheet when terms of rebounds and points But she does a lot of things to down low to disrupt teams, and you hear coaches all the time Use this old cliche of they do a lot of things that don't show up in the box score. That's the type of player that Olivia Owens is. When she comes off the bench. She could give her team that lift and allowed Rihanna or Kiki to get A couple of minutes rest on the bench, and Olivia affects the game in a positive way. When she comes in. She played big again today against the very tall Mississippi state line up. Let's take you through some of the final stats. We'll hear from coach Kyra L. Z and just a few minutes we'll start with the team stats. Kentucky shot 49% for the game. They were 30 of 61, but 50% from beyond the arc. They made 14 of their 28 shots from deep The Cat said Kentucky made 18 of their 22 free throws for 82% Mississippi State 49% for the game. They were 35 of 71 but shot over 70% in the second half as they were able to establish their dribble drive offense. It also led to some open threes and state connected on seven of 17 for 41%. Mississippi State. Not really known this year is a good free throw shooting team They are just 62% coming into today. Bulldogs made took advantage of their few opportunities. They were nine of 10 at the charity stripe this afternoon. Turnovers, usually a big part of the defensive game plan for both teams today that was negligible. Kentucky turned it over 12 Times. Mississippi State 11. Both teams scored, 15 points off turnovers. The turnover battle today was Maura about for each team when they occurred. They were in some pretty big spots in the game. It allowed Mississippi State to tie it at the end of regulation and allowed to Kentucky to come back and win it and over time. Kentucky wins the rebounding battle 35 to 34, Mississippi state finishes with nine offensive boards. Kentucky had eight and Mississippi State outscored the Wildcats 13 to 10 off second chance points. In terms of bench points. Mississippi State finished with more points off their bench. 26 2 22 that was due in large part to meth are a coming off the bench to score 19 today on eight of 14 shooting. She also had three threes. Points in the paint Big day for Mississippi State. A lot of that dribble drive offense resulted in 54 points in the paint for state. Kentucky finished with 24 fast break points. Basically, we're even 16 to 14. Locks 3 to 1 in favor of Kentucky steals 6 to 5 for Kentucky. 17 assists on the 30 made baskets for the Wildcats 12 on the 35 shots for the Bulldogs. This game saw 10 ties and 14 lead changes. Kentucky lead for nearly 21 a half minutes Mississippi State lead for 17 minutes and they were tied for about six minutes and 15 seconds. Of game time. Kentucky's largest lead in this game was never more than six that occurred on a couple of occasions at 30 to 24 at the end of the first half, and also 53 to 47. In the early in the third quarter, the largest run for Kentucky. This was really a back and forth game, Kentucky at a 90 run Mississippi State had a 10 hour run. But outside of that It really was never more than a four or five point difference. The entire afternoon. Mississippi state's largest lead was only six at 75 69 with 4.5 minutes to go and Kentucky came back. After going down 75 69. They came back to lead 78 75 Mississippi state, then got an and one play often offensive rebound to tie the game at 78. Kentucky turned it over on their final possession of regulation. Mississippi State missed the point blank runner to force the overtime, and that's when Kentucky after falling down four in the extra period, they come back to win it. And over time 90 to 86. Mississippi State had four in double figures. Ricky Jackson with 23 points. Massaro's we mentioned had 19. They got 12 from Mingo Young and 14 from Carter, nine points from Taylor, seven from Wiggins and two from cooks for their total of 86. Kentucky got 33 points from Ryan Howard 25 of those came in the fourth quarter and overtime combined. Ryan was 10 of 19 hit four threes and nine of 10 from the free throw line. Ryan, also with a double double 10 rebounds. We're pleased to be joined at this time by the Victoria said coach of the Wildcats. Kyra L. Z and coach. What an effort by your group today and never say die attitude and they will themselves to a win in overtime. Congratulations. Thank you so much. I am so proud of the Wildcats today. Um, you know, we stayed the course we talked about it might take us 40 minutes. It took us 45 minutes, but we talked all year. We have to be mentally tough. We have to be resilient and we can never give up And they did that today. You and I talked before the game about how this team's experienced. Some of that veteran leadership would help them through this. This stretch of playing four teams ranked in the top 15. Thought that experience paid off there a the end. After the five second call, your team felt like they stayed composed and into the overtime. When they fell down. They stayed even killed and they just rode the wave to the end of the game. I thought that veteran leadership really showed up today. Right, Ron Howard. Um,.

Thanksgiving Dinners Are The Cheapest They've Been In Decades

"Every year before thanksgiving the american farm bureau sends volunteer shoppers into grocery stores. They note the prices of the ingredients. That go into thanksgiving dinner. Cardiff garcia and patty hirsch from npr. Podcast indicator from planet. Money discovered the cost of thanksgiving is going down. The american farm bureau is a group that represents farmers throughout the country and its annual survey. It found that the average cost of thanksgiving dinner for ten people. This year is forty six dollars and ninety cents on the farm bureau's chief economist. John newton says that figure is low really low down four percent of from what we saw last year and actually is the lowest level that we've seen since two thousand ten and that's what i'd adjusting for inflation. We asked john if he could tell us high. The cost of thanksgiving dinners changed when he does adjust for inflation and specifically. What we wanted to know was if it was possible. That thanksgiving dinner was actually the cheapest it had ever been since the survey was started back in nineteen eighty six way. Let me let me power a spreadsheet. Just a mayor sure for go for it. Yeah i check it out yes it is. It is the lowest that it's been thirty five years. Wait a minute what did you just tell me. The in inflation adjusted dollars. Thanksgiving dinner is going to be the lowest. It's been thirty five years. Are you stunned. You know i am actually. I don't know why didn't look at that particular statistic before you asked me so. John says that you basically have to understand two stories to also understand why thanksgiving dinner is so cheap this year. Because here's the first story what happened this year. The ingredient with the biggest decline in its price is the turkey turkey. Prices came in dollar twenty one per pound that was down seven percent from what we saw last year. Which means you can put a sixteen pound bird on the table. Offer less than twenty dollars this year and this could be partly because the pandemic has forced families not to gather together in the same big groups as they normally would so. There's just less demand for those big turkeys families usually by and it's also because a lot of grocery stores have discounted the price of turkey. Frankly just to get people through the door. According to the department of agriculture more than eighty percent of retailers were running promotions across the country. When we started this survey. So you'll see turkey. Prices that range anywhere from twenty nine cents a pound to two ninety nine a pound depending on what type of grocer your and then. There's the second the longer story to tell. And this is actually an easy one to explain. Because of new technologies and innovations in how to produce food over the last few decades farmers have simply become better at it more efficient which means that they can sell the food for cheaper. You got to recognize that we benefit from a higher quality very affordable food supply. You know we spend a small percentage of our disposable income on food. Food in the united states is very affordable now john and the farm bureau of course represent farmers so he's boosting his piece. They're a little bit but the general story that the agricultural sector in the us has become more and more efficient over time is definitely true.

Farm Bureau Survey: Thanksgiving dinner cost down 4%

"Every year. Right before thanksgiving. The american farm bureau sends out hundreds of volunteers shoppers into grocery stores all throughout the country. All fifty states their mission to find report the prices of the ingredients that go into a traditional thanksgiving dinner and then the most mouth-watering way possible harris farm bureau chief economist john. Newton listing a bunch of those ingredients. I mean it's your classic thanksgiving dinner so you obviously have the turkey so there check in turkey prices. We've got stuffing sweet. Potatoes brown and serve roles. Cranberries for the cranberry sauce. You're shells your pumpkin pie. Mix whipping cream a gallon of milk. But it goes without saying the prices of these ingredients will be different depending on where you are in the country. Yeah absolutely. I mean a turkey that you buy a whole foods in manhattan is probably going to be more expensive than turkey. You buy a hy-vee in iowa partly because the price of everything is higher in manhattan but also for other economic reasons to john says you also have different supply. Chain costs to get that bird into grocery stores in manhattan for example. It's going to be more expensive to do that. And say Put it in a grocery store in in iowa where you're very close to where turkish approved so john and the crew at the farm bureau do is find the average price of each ingredient across the whole country. Then they add those prices to find the total cost of that classic thanksgiving dinner in every year. John and the farm bureau look at the same ingredients so that they can see just how the cost of thanksgiving dinner has changed through the years. And this is the thirty fifth straight thanksgiving. The farm bureau has conducted the survey. But this is twenty twenty year unlike any other. The couvert pandemic has upended so many parts of our lives and that includes the prices of the foods. We love to eat on thanksgiving today on the show. How and why. The price of thanksgiving has changed. Not just this year though but also through the decades

Farmers Are Warming Up To The Fight Against Climate Change

"Conservative farmers who have blocked climate legislation in the past, both groups are calling for policies to help farmers fight climate change through financial incentives, not regulation. NPR's Dan Charles has more It was 2009. When the American Farm Bureau Federation declared war on climate legislation, and Ana Unwra Cohen was a staffer in Congress. We were right in the thick of working on the first comprehensive climate build of passage Chamber of Congress, the law would have limited greenhouse emissions using a method called cap and trade. But the farm Bureau, a lobbying powerhouse, said the cap part would drive up costs and put farmers out of business. Don't cap our future, I think was their slogan, and they had those on caps. That people were wearing up on on Capitol Hill, and they succeeded. The legislation died this week. The head of the farm bureau, Zippy DeVol, struck a different tone. We're gonna have a real common sense science based discussion about how we protect the climate. And our farmers want to be part of that he was announcing a new food and agriculture climate alliance. It includes other farm groups. Also big environmental organizations like the Nature Conservancy, where people Elias is director of agriculture it feels like in the past. 18 months, The conversation has just really shifted. The shift is happening for a couple of reasons. Many food companies have promised to reduce their greenhouse emissions. And they're pushing for changes on the farm, sometimes paying for the changes. And Barb Glen, who CEO of the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture, says it's partly just what farmers are experiencing everyone in this unique coalition. Understands and is witnessing the changing of the climate, and we all want to be involved In impacting this. The new alliance is proposing dozens of policy changes that encourage farmers to install equipment that captures methane, the powerful greenhouse gas from Cal manure or farm in a way that builds healthier carbon rich soil, actually removing carbon from the air. Farmers would get paid to do this, maybe by the government, maybe by private companies that want to offset or cancel out some of their own carbon emissions by paying for greenhouse gas reductions somewhere else. Some environmentalists who are not part of this alliance, like Jason Davidson at Friends of the Earth are dead set against some of those ideas. There's a heavy reliance on voluntary market based solutions. But those carbon offsets that farmers might sell just allow polluters somewhere to keep polluting, he says. Also, it could be hard to measure what some of these farming methods actually accomplish. MEREDITH Niles, specialist on farming and the environment of the University of Vermont, says scientists are working on that measurement problem. And the fact that farm groups are finally talking about reducing their own greenhouse emissions, she says, is a big step forward. A lot of farmers didn't want to speak about it because it might mean potential regulation. They're fine with incentives, though. And there are signs that the incoming Biden administration is thinking the same way. The leader of the Biden transition team for the U. S. Department of Agriculture recently called on the USDA to set up a so called carbon bank. It would pay farmers to fight climate change.

Scientists Say Disasters Are Teaming Up During Time Of Climate Change

"It's been a record shattering year for heat in the American West and this weekend is going to be hot too. If it seems like heat drought and wildfires are all piling together it's not your imagination scientists say climate change makes them more likely to happen at the same time. As NPR's Laura Summer reports. It takes a lot for heat to make headlines in Tucson. Arizona as Stephanie Small, House realize listening to the radio recently a couple days ago he said well, no warning for today it's only be one hundred six. Apparently. We're not over a hundred ten everybody should join the weather but this year is getting people's attention. Small House says she's president of the Arizona Farm Bureau Federation, and she also runs a cattle ranch outside of Tucson in the twenty years that I've been here on the ranch. This is probably just the second time that I remember a summer that's dry on top of the heat the entire Colorado River, which is key for Arizona's water supply has been in a twenty year drought. Is there tension in the Vermont Community Right? Now ranchy community absolutely is their stress absolutely these rare events. Are simply becoming more common says, Mogi Sunday professor of Civil Engineering Boise State University in a study in the journal Science advances he says that trend is clear over the past few decades basically routes or getting more intense and hot years or getting more hud, and the cycle between them is intensifying droughts and heat waves feed each other. He says when the soil is dry more of the sun's energy heats up the air then it's hotter making more water evaporate causing more drought. It's climate change driven cycle via have to move past that traditional thinking of heat waves and droughts and fires separately. Because they would work together they. They are the reason that we are seeing so many disasters, happening disasters like the extreme. Across the West this year, what is happening in California is a preview of what we'll see every. We need to act. Now we do not have any more minute I'm not talking about the years we do not have any more minutes to cut our emissions because in a hotter climate he says disasters are teaming up lauren summer NPR news.

Their Dark Materials

"About a year ago. We released an episode in which I interviewed the author. Cassius unclear about her book. The secret lives of color. It was a conversation about the history and origins of different colors throughout human existence. During our talk does he and I covered everything from a type of purple. That squeezed from sees nails do a shade of green. That could literally kill you but there was one pigment in particular from that episode that one of our producers. Here's here nine hundred hasn't been able to stop thinking about because it's bonkers producer. Vivian lay. It's called Vance a black. It's a pigment that reaches the level of darkness. That's so intense. It's kind of upsetting. It's so black. It's like looking at a hole cut out of the universe. It's so black. It's like looking at portal into another dimension of nothingness. It's so black that if you stare at it long enough you'll see your own death. I keep going these metaphors or crummy but it it's it's like this philosophical abyss. Your is just fall into it. This is Adam. Rogers journalist writer wired and I write books sometimes to Rogers has written about van to block for wired because when anyone sees with not just Vivian. They think it's bonkers. It makes you rethink think. What black means fantastic is striking when you look at it even when you look at a picture of it because it looks like something colored black it looks like an absence Vanna black swallows nearly all visible light in gives back no reflection so every contour crease of whatever it's applied to disappears it has this ought affect of making something look two dimensional while at the same time as if you could fall right through it? It has the same feeling looking looking at it as a color that looking over the edge of a building or something does he actually do. Feel kind of a physiological response to that does not look right that looks unreal. It looks real. VENTA black was created by the tech industry for the tech industry. But this strange dark material would actually go on to turn the art world on its head They're black pigments out there and then there are super black pigments. That are so dark. They need to be created in a laboratory. These super blacks excrete such extreme levels of darkness. Because they're made up of something called Carbon Nanotubes or C. N.. Tease Carbon nanotubes are pretty much. Exactly what they sound like teeny tiny microscopic tubes combranch of carbon atoms just a few nanometers wide for reference. A single human hair is about eighty to a hundred thousand nanometers. animators Y T materials are made up of forests of these microscopic carbon tubes. I'd say it's like a field of gross. Okay and the grass is a carbon nanotubes in about one six thousand two thickness of your hair and there's about a billion of them per square centimeter. This is Ben Johnson the founder and CTO Joe of Serena Systems which specializes in carbon nanotubes technology. He's the kind of person who even as a kid you'd expect to become the founder and CTO of of a carbon nanotubes technology company. When I went through school I spent my time trying to make gunpowder type rocket And then I kind of went to develop liquid. Propellant systems is that we're all the dangerous and needs to go bang and kind of not very safe back then. People didn't really care that much about safety and they go yeah. This sounds like a really cool idea. Goods this is not a really cool idea. Jensen began working in the nanomaterials field in two thousand four back then. CNT's had a lot of promise in the space industry because super black coatings could be really useful inside of satellites telescopes and optical imaging technology but carbon nanotubes. Technology wasn't quite where it needed to be yet. CNT's these weren't like paint. They had to be grown onto a surface in a special type of reactor at an absurdly high temperature. High enough to destroy. Most of the things you might I wanna grow them on Johnson and his team worked on it for years and finally managed to develop a new reactor that allowed them to grow see and tease at a much lower temperature and in doing so they had one unexpected but delightful side effect they made it blacker one day. We go to some data back. They said back. Do you realize what you've done you've this material. And it's got almost unmeasurable low reflectance and I was a K.. What does that mean? It meant that Serena systems had created the darkest substance on earth material that absorbed ninety nine point nine six five percent of light. He couldn't tell from the numbers but Jensen new the cat was really special after one of his researchers showed him a sample said. Look I'm like okay. What am I looking at? It just looks black and said look and I'm putting my face right up beside it and the guy's looking laughing at me alum gain a it just looks black. And then he did something that just told me with nailed it. He took an object of the surface that was three dimensional so before matt helpless put my eyes to it. I couldn't tell us anything that was just flat. Danson black was so dark that it almost felt like it defied Clyde the laws of physics we weren't looking to create the world's blackest material. That's a thing Johnson and his team decided to give this new flashy C. N. T. of flashing flashing name Vance a black which stands for vertically aligned nanotubes array black as black as Vance. A black was surrey. NANNA systems systems still saw it as a niche material so when they launched their product at the Farnborough Airshow in two thousand fourteen. They saw themselves as small fry. Farm Farm Bureau is a big deal. In the aerospace industry Serena Systems was presenting their nanomaterial at the same event as the Boeing dreamliner military jets and a paragliding car so Jensen wasn't expecting to make much of a splash. But that's not what actually happened was just surreal. We had camera crews literally all the major networks filming looking at these materials because knowing it ever seen it demonstrated like this before people were freaking out. over Vance a black. We just didn't expect it and my son was like well. He's just black. Why are we getting these people going crazy about it? People were amazed by the depth of darkness achieved by Van Black and wanted to know. More soon enough Serena systems was receiving all sorts of requests from people who wanted a piece of it. Aw People wanting to coach because people want to coat dice in it coat bodies in it. We had a very well known youtuber. The spent quite asking us saying can can you please live on youtube aside from that time. potty Canadian what really caught Jensen's attention was the amount of interest is that came from another field in desperate need of super black pigment. The Art World in those first couple of weeks alone Surrey Nano Systems received saved over four hundred inquiries from artists wanting to use it in their work the number of people in the art world that wanted to use it that that was absolutely absolutely crazy time. Actually because we're a company set up to do engineering and space not accompany the setup to create products for artists to us working with artists. Artis was just not something Serena systems was equipped to do because Vance black was incredibly hard to work with sure they could grow at a much lower temperature than before that was still about four hundred and thirty degrees centigrade. Cat's were also really delicate and can scrape off easily but most importantly any collaboration with artists would take up time in tech resources. Because anything coated with Banda black would have to be grown in Serena systems reactors just wasn't a practical proposition for the company that said an ish is an incredibly charismatic. Chat with an amazing vision and and his life's work has just been phenomenal an eastern as in a niche Kapoor. Who if you haven't heard of him? Before is very famous so for decades has been one of the premier contemporary artists working today says Adam Rogers again use the kind of person who will do a whole gallery takeover teen modern you know. He's he's a really big deal. We should know here that initiative did not respond to an interview request for this story but he's probably best known for creating Chicago's iconic cloud gate sculpture also known as the bean and and he has been knighted by Queen Elizabeth for his contributions to visual arts. And when Vance black debuted he wanted it. So he reached out Serena Systems and invited Jensen to check out a studio or walked into his studio and I was literally speeches or what I saw given his body of work. Kapoor seemed uniquely suited for this material. There is in a way a constant continuous process that gives up the same questions. This is a niche poor. In a video he released about one of his pieces titled Dissension. So those those questions are for me. The void object or the non object many questions about color questions about space and time. Because I really do believe that for there to be new objects has to be new. Space Kapoor has has a fascination with blacks capacity to make something both exist and not exist at the same time his work. A lot of it deals with voight. It deals with colored blocks and try to understand the relationship between color space
