Reserve Champion Overall Travis Ericksen, Storden Strivers Gutknecht raises concerns over farm lender deal First District Congressman Gil Gutknecht has issued the following statement regarding the pro- posed sale of Farm Credit Services of America (FCS America) to Dutch-based Rabobank Group: "I have very serious questions about the long term ramifications that this sale may have on farmers and rural communities. I recently spoke with Secretary Ann Veneman about this announcement and expressed my concerns. I will closely monitor the sit- uation as we move forward." The Farm Credit System is a nationwide network con- sisting of 6 Farm redit Banks, and one Agricultural Credit Bank that provides funding and affiliated servic. es to more than 100 locally owned Farm Credit associa- tions and numerous coopera- tives nationwide. The funda- mental purpose of this net- work of Government-spon- sored enterprises created by Congress in 1916 is to pro- vide American agriculture with a source of sound, dependable credit at compet- itive rates of interest. Farm Credit has provid- ed $,56 billion in loans to more than a half million growers, agribusiness and agricultural cooperatives, electric and telephone coop- eratives, and rural utility and water systems. Overall, more than 25 percent of the credit needs of U.S. agricul- ture are met by Farm Credit institutions. Conservation Tillage Field Day set for August 17th By Dave Pfarr, Ext. Ed. The Tom Muller farm northwest of Windom will be the site of a Conservation Tillage Field Day to be held August 17th beginning at 10 a.m. This is a joint effort between the U of M Extension Service, Cottonwood County NRCS, Cottonwood County SWCD, MPCA, and private industry. Farmers will have the opportunity to see four dif- ferent tillage systems side by side and compare plant populations, weed control, crop residue, and general plant health. David Dukes, no-till farmer from Bedford, IA will be the featured speaker. A number of other speakers have been invited to present information on the following topics: *Experiences with Strip Tillage in Cottonwood County -- Tom Muller, farmer and site cooperator. *University Trials Comparing Tillage Systems -- Jodi Dejong-Hughes, Regional Ext. Educator. *EQIP Incentives Available for Local Growers and Trends in Tillage Practices -- Cottonwood County SWCD and NRCS representatives. *Nitrogen Rate Studies for Corn Production -- Gary Wyatt, Regional Extension Educator. *Using Auto-Steer Technology in Conservation Tillage Systems -- Try- County Implement. Cottonwood County Extension Educator Wayne Schoper encourages growers to attend the field day. "This is one of five field days held in MN that will provide growers with hands-on learning of how conservation tillage may work on their farms. With the rising cost of energy, we need to think more toward conservation tillage systems that reduce fuel costs." The field day begins at 10 a.m. with lunch provided at 12:00 noon. Strip till implements and a tractor with a guidance steering system will be demonstrated on site at 1:00 p.m. Contact the Cottonwood Co. SWCD at 507-831-1153 or the Cottonwood Co. Extension Office at 507-831-4022 for more information Directions to the Tom Muller farm: From Windom NW of Windom on County Rd. 13, lO miles. The Muller farm is on the right (north) side of the road. As You Age To educate older adults about prescription medica- tion misuse and how to avoid it, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have jointly launched a public information initiative, As You Age. The shared goals are to educate older adults about the inherent dangers of prescription medication misuse and to encourage them to talk to their health care professionals about the medications they are taking. Prescription medica- tions, when used correctly and under a doctor's supervi- sion, are safe and effective. However, data show older adults often misuse prescrip- tion medications or mix them with alcohol, placing themselves at risk for harm- ful -- even fatal -- drug interactions. Older Americans use prescription medications approximately three times as frequently as the general population, and have been found to have the poorest rates of compliance with directions for taking medica- tions. Adults over age 65 (about 13 percent of our pop. ulation) buy 30 percent of all prescription drugs and 40 percent of all over-the-count- er drugs. The use of four or more medications has been linked to an increased risk of falls due to an adverse drug reaction. The elderly have six times more hospitaliza- tions from adverse reactions to drugs than the general population. In addition, as individuals grow older, their bodies respond differently to alcohol and medications than when they were younger, and changes in body weight can influence the amount of medicine needed and how long it remains in the body. Body circulation also may slow down, which can affect how quickly drugs get into the liver and kidneys. The liver and kidneys may also work slower, which can impact how a drug breaks down and is eliminated from the body. A brochure As You Age: A Guide to Aging, Medicines, and Alcohol is available, along with any other alcohol and drug information, by calling 1-800-662-HELP. In Next Week's American Profile...
