PNP comment: This is a great, but short slide show of the July 1, 2013 Rally in Klamath Falls. Worth watching! — Editor Liz Bowen

KBC News

4th of July 2013. Today we remember our roots, the fight for freedom, the blessings of that freedom. 3 days ago, many of those who fought in foreign wars for that freedom, then spent the rest of their lives growing food for a hungry world, stood on the steps of the Klamath County Courthouse pleading for the freedom to continue to farm and ranch as our government took away their irrigation water. This short short video helps tell their story. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpBwZuxfukI


 Super info on the real Tule Lake and how the area filled with water

* Tule Lake was a navigable lake up to 30′ deep in a closed basin. There was no outlet for this water. To farm the land, and provide water for affordable regulated hydropower for the West, at the farmers’ expense, we rerouted that water and blasted a tunnel through Sheepy Ridge so 20-30 acre feet of that water would go into FWS Lower Klamath /Wildlife Refuge, where it could never go before, then into the Klamath River.

Tulelake Irrigation District pays for 100% of the Operations and Maintenance of D Plant (the electric pumps pumping that water uphill through the tunnel) and Lease Land farmers pay for 98% of that cost. HERE is a Power Usage & Cost comparison. Our power costs have increased 2729% in 7 years.



Nine Wildlife Organizations Urge Wyden to Act on   Klamath Refuges,   Oregon Wild Press Release, posted to KBC 7/3/13. KBC NOTE: Tulelake Refuges   have an abundance of water presently. Cole explains below why irrigators   can’t pay to pump into LKNWR.

Klamath   Basin Fish and Wildlife / FWS refuge manager Ron   Cole’s letter rallying Audubon Society to petition Obama   administration to obtain a water right. He did say the REASON for the low flows: “Mandated ESA flows in the   Klamath River and water levels in Upper Klamath Lake have reduced water   allocations to the Project. Escalating power costs mean   these limited supplies of water are too expensive for irrigators to pay   pumping costs, causing them to reuse water many more times, rather than send   return flow to LKNWR. From 1981- 2009, LKNWR averaged about 74K ac.ft. of   return flow delivered through D-Plant. From 2009-2011, return flow has   averaged about 15K ac.ft., a reduction of about 80%.”

Solution: Fish and   Wildlife Service could pay the power cost and have full water deliveries.
Cole details a solution: Geothermal   energy plant planned for Klamath wildlife refuge, SBO, posted to KBC   3/29/12. “Take, for example, the Klamath Basin National Wildlife   Refuge. The complex has been perpetually short on water in recent years and a   jump in power costs in 2004 has made pumping water to replenish wetlands   prohibitively expensive….(Manager Ron Cole) estimates that in 2001 it cost   33 cents to pump an acre-foot of water onto the refuge. The cost to do the   same to day is $9.20.

Oregon Senate passes bill to limit gold dredges, H&N 7/3/13. “With deference to the 150 or 200 years of mining this state has had, you would think they would try to figure out if the dredges are actually hurting something before they outlaw them,” he said. “If they are really worried about the salmon, they could say, `Let’s stop fishing for a few years,’ and see if that affects salmon.”

Midwest drought keeps export market on edge

Agriculture, Hay

Tight supply driving almost stable hay prices up again


Capital Press

Posted: Thursday, September 06, 2012 12:00 PM

WILMINGTON, Calif. — U.S. hay exporters, the vast majority of whom are on the West Coast, were just beginning to see stability in their marketplace when the Midwest drought upset it again.

Hay prices, which had been so high they were hurting exports, had dropped to more sustainable levels with greater inventory but the drought is tightening supply and pushing prices upward again, says Nicholas Gombos, vice president of supply chain and logistics for ACX Pacific Northwest, in Wilmington.

It’s all unsettling, he said, because the federal ethanol mandate already was keeping prices high and bringing the long-term survivability of U.S. hay exports into question.

The Obama administration and Congress ended ethanol subsidies but did not end the mandate for fuel to have a 10 percent ethanol blend, Gombos said. Fuel prices are high because ethanol costs a lot to produce, he said. High fuel prices make commodities more costly and ethanol takes 40 percent of the nation’s corn crop, keeping the price of wheat, hay and other commodities high, he said.

“Our industry will never be the same because we have to compete with unsustainable government mandates — ethanol mandates that have pushed our corn production to the brink,” Gombos said.

“There is so much pressure that the drought or any hiccup in supply creates dramatic responses in the marketplace. It’s immoral,” he said. “We should be using 40 percent of corn as food. How can I as a private business compete against government?”

U.S. hay exporters are known for quality and consistent supply but they are losing their reputation as a stable supply chain, Gombos said. Odds of losing overseas buyers are increasing as those buyers look to other countries for hay and other feed, he said.

With price swings of more than $100 a ton, the issue is less supply and demand than “influences we can’t control like the ethanol mandate and the weather,” he said.

West Coast prices are about $230 per ton for premium dairy hay and $150 a ton for rained-on, dry cow hay. That’s lower than 2011 peaks but edging up. About 30 percent of the uptick is real increase in demand and 70 percent is speculation, Gombos said.

Farmers hold onto hay longer and speculate that prices will go up, particularly with increased demand for hay in the Midwest because of the drought, he said.

“Typically, we source from Montana, Colorado and Wyoming, but we’ve seen significant demand from Midwestern users pulling from those states and some pressure on Idaho and Utah,” he said.

Hay growers think the drought will drive the price of grain high enough that it will be used less for feed, increasing demand for hay even more, he said.
