A6 SIDNEY HERALD,SUNDAY,JUNE 9, 20l9 AGRICULTURE & BUSINESS Celebrate national dairy month in June June is national dairy month. Dairy products play a major role in many favorite foods in the forms of cheeses, yo- gurts, cream or just plain milk. Dairy products contain protein and calcium and are fortified with two important vitamins, A and D. These nu- trients work together to help improve bone and muscle health and other processes in our bodies. They can also be a good source of magnesium, phospho- rous, potassium and B12. Milk is fortified with Vitamin D for many reasons, one is that it helps our body absorb and maintain calcium. Bodies use vi- tamin D to help absorb and maintain calcium. Calcium builds strong bones and teeth in ad- dition to being used by muscles. Outside of drinking a glass of milk with a meal or snack, there are many ways to in— clude dairy in your diet. Flavored yogurt can easily be paired with granola and fruit as a sweet snack and plain yogurt can be used in place of sour cream in savory or baked dishes. Cottage cheese can be a quick dip or filling for fruits and vegetables. An appropriate amount of low—fat dairy in a well-balanced diet can reduce the risk for heart disease and pro- vides the calcium need— ed to reduce the risk for weak bones later in life. Adults under the age of 50 need 1000 mil- ligrams of calcium a day, while women over 50 and men over 71 need at least 1200 milligrams of cal- cium a day. The protein in dairy can also help prevent the loss of muscle mass with old age. American Heart Association recom- mends fat free or low— fat dairy products as whole milk and, other whole‘fat products are high-er in saturated fats. if your diet is al- ready high in fat, con- sider using fat-free or low-fat alternatives as too many saturated fats in your overall diet may lead to higher blood cholesterol levels and a higher risk for heart disease.

Grain markets sea: s as wet weather wreaks havoc on raweraps Grain markets soared higher as wet weather wreaked havoc on row crop plantings and win- ter wheat production. Corn and soybeans plantings are at a re- cord slow pace, with the likelihood that mil- lions of acres won’t get planted at all. Winter wheat across the Mid- west and plains is expe— riencing high disease issues due to warm and moist conditions. Har— vest is stalled in the south, leading to more quality problems and Need expected yield loss as well. Cattle were lower, led by feeders. A new tar- iff against Mexico cre- ated major selling in the feeder cattle mar— ket on fears that they would retaliate with their own trade restric- tions. Calves, beef and corn are just a few of the major ag products that the US sells to ,Mexico. Cash markets stabilized and actually showed some strength for the first time in weeks.

Montana Stockgrowers to gather in Miles City, June 13-15 Montana Stock- growers Association is headed back to its roots ~ Miles City, for their MidYear Meet- ing on June 13-15. Montana’s most in- fluential cattlemen and women organi- zation began in the 1880s with a group of ranchers uniting on issues of open range grazing and cattle theft. Today the Montana Stock- growers Association represents the larg— ' est number of ranch- ers in the state and works on behalf of new and different is— sues, but still for the Montana rancher. The MidYear Meet- ing is one of two an- nual conferences to set policy that guides the Associa- tion throughout the year. While the main focus is policy devel- opment, the gather- ing is also a network- ing opportunity for members. Ranchers and allied industry professionals come together from across the state for three days filled with meet- ings, entertainment, education and fun. Fred Wacker, a rancher from Miles City and president of the Montana Stock- growers Association, says he is enthusi- astic about bringing the MidYear Meet- ing to Miles City. “We are looking forward to welcoming ranchers to our area. A lot of work has gone into putting together a meeting that will influence issues important to cattle- men and women in our state. We are also excit- ed for some great music events, the old time pa- rade and all the other activities in Miles City this weekend.” Policy shaping meet- ings start the after- noon of Thursday, June 13, at Miles Commu- nity College. That eve- ning join fellow cattle- men for a tailgate din- ner at the fairgrounds, followed by classic country music art— ist Moe Bandy, noted for “Bandy the Rodeo Clown” and 60 other chart hits, performing at the Ag Advancement Center across the street from the Miles City Livestock Commission. Friday, June 14, starts with committee meetings in the morn— ing and the opening session featuring Don Schiefelbein as key- note speaker. Schief- elbein, along with his father, seven brothers and three nephews own and operate Schiefel- bein Farms, a large diversified farming operation in Kimball, Minn. Before return- ing to the family farm, Schiefelbein served as the executive direc- tor of the American Gelbvieh Association and also worked for the North American Limousin Association. He currently serves as chairman of the Beef Industry Long Range Planning Committee. Friday afternoon at- tendees can see ag and rangeland research at work during the ranch tour at the USDA Fort Keogh Land and Live- stock Research Station. That evening the Mid- Year Gala will feature a prime rib dinner and auction with live music by Way Out West, back at the fairgrounds. Saturday morning will offer a special trib- ute to 135 years of the Montana Stockgrowers Association the “Old Times” all horse and livestock parade at 9 am. A closing session and luncheon will wrap up the meeting. Additional activities in Miles City this week- end will have some- thing for everyone, and include two ranch ro- deos, the Ryno—Palooza Music Festival, the Cowtown BBQ Coo- koff, and the Badlands Bowl All-Star Football Game.
