Page Golden Valley News February 4, 2021‘ OBITUARIES NEWS ChristineAnn 1 . (Barthel) Finneman ' BEACH Christine Ann (Barthel) Finneman, 96, passed from her earthly life on ‘Jan. 24, 2021 , at San- ford Hospital in Bismarck. Christine was born in Sentinel Butte at the home of a midwife on Jan. 6, 1925, to Tony and Catherine (Dietz) Barthel, the second oldest of nine children. Her first eight grades were at the Barthel Country School, southeast of Golva, half a mile from her home. Babysitting was one of her jobs during high school, for 25 cents a night, as well as working at the local telephone office switchboard. Christine graduated in 1942, along with her future husband Ralph, who was also her childhood sweetheart. She achieved her teaching certificate from Dickinson State College and Minot, teaching at the Carew School. Ralph and Christine married on May 25, 1943, at St Mary’s Catholic Church. They had 40 wonderful years together when Ralph passed away June 8, 1983. To this union, 11 children were born, seven girls and four boys. Christine was active in St. Mary’s Altar Society, sang in the church choir for many years, taught CCD, led rosary before Mass, helped with fall dinners and funerals, was a teacher’s aide at the Golva School and made numerous costumes for the . children. For many years, she invited the school children to come and get a pumpkin from her garden, better known as Grandma’s Pumpkin Patch. Christine enjoyed family get- togethers, playing cards, gardening, canning, baking breads, singing and dancing. She was everybody’s mom and grandma, including a Japanese 4-H exchange student. She supported many missionary children. Christine enjoyed the iPad, e—mails and Face- book. Her sewing machine put in many hours making bridesmaid dresses, multiple quilts, potholders and patching jeans. Ralph and Chris- tine were awarded Family of the Year by. Knights of Columbus. Chris- tine was also nominated for Beauti- ful Women of. North Dakota. Christine’s home became the breakfast hot spot after Mass on Sun— day mornings, serving many priests, seminarians and whoever would show up at the'door, including the Rev. Adam Maus’s dog, Sally. Teachers were always welcomed at her home if they needed. a place to rest their heads. She enjoyed writing letters of encouragement and she had a love of supporting the seminarians. She was the community welcome wagon whether it was offering a plate of cookies or as a taxi driver for the elderly. Her last home, the (9019611 Valle Manor shp mm": was Asllce Il'leaven. Christine was preceded in death by her parents, Tony and Catherine; her husband, Ralph; three brothers, Laurence, Raymond and Donnie; one sister, Helen; a granddaughter, Brandy Alberta; an infant grand- daughter, Lindey Dale; an infant grandson, Leon Jay and daughter-in- law Linda. Christine is survived by her 11 children Gene (Susan); Marylee (Paul); Arlene (Marvin); Pauline (Frank); Darrell (ReNee); Brenda (Gary); Lynn (Duane); Gerrianne (Al); Raphael (friend Robin); Mark (Bella); and Michelle (Gary); 26 grandchildren; 45 great-grandchil- dren; 10 great-great grandchildren; her sisters, Dorothy Finneman, Lil- lian Patterson, MaryAnn Marman and Leona Jacobs; as well as numer- ous nieces, nephews and in-laws.

The program uses the direct costs and yields from the 2021 pro— jected crop budgets for nine regions of North Dakota, but producers are encouraged to enter the expected. yields and input costs for their farm. ‘ The user designates a reference. crop and enters its expected market . price. Depending on the region, a broad selection of nine to 18 crops are compared. The program pro— vides the prices for competing crops that would be necessary to provide the same return over vari- able costs as the reference crop. “Producers can compare these ‘break-even’ prices to expected market prices to see which crop is most likely to compete with the ref- erence crop,” says Ron Haugen, NDSU Extension farm manage- ment specialist. “Grain prices can move quickly. The program pro- vides a tool for producers to check the changing scenarios until final planting decisions are made this spring.” . The program includes an under- lying assumption that fixed costs, such as machinery ownership, land, and the owner’s labor and manage— ment, do not vary among crop choices and therefore do not need to be included in the analysis. “In practice, there may be dif- ferences in fixed costs that should be considered,” Haugen says. “For example, there may be ad- ditional labor, management and risk associated with a competing crop,” Haugen adds. "‘If all the labor and management is provided. by the owner-operator, it would be considered a fixed cost and could be excluded. However, the pro- ducer should add some cost if he or she would only want to produce the crop when an adequate reward would be received for the extra time and management required rel- ative to the reference crop.” A similar rationale could be used if a competing crop is considered higher risk. The Crop Compare program is‘ available online at‘ https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/farmman-“ agement/tools. Use trigger dates as droughtdecision making guide: As drought continues to affect much of the western US. and North Dakota, ranchers will make manage- ment decisions that deal with the land, livestock and even people. “Based on the lack of fall mois- ture in 2020 and snow this winter, the odds for a negative impact on forage‘ production of pastureland and hay land in 2021 is more likely than not,” cautions Kevin Sedivec, North Dakota State University Extension “We need to remember that drought conditions are common in the northern Plains,” he adds “We know 70% to 80% of our forage pro-_ duction is driven by moisture that oc— curs by early July in the Dakotas and- by late June in eastern Montana and Wyoming.” . Tools available to help predict for-\ age production include: r NDSU Forage Prediction Calcu- l a t o r :1. https-://www.ag.ndsu.edu/drought/for ages—and-grazing . Grass—Cast: https://grasscast.unl.edu Producers also know most of their hay is harvested by early July. “The lack of snow creates differ- ent concerns,” says Miranda Meehan, NDSU Extension livestock environ; mental stewardship specialist. “Many stock ponds and dams rely on snowmelt runoff for recharge. With-f out recharge, these livestock drinking: water sources war become low,‘ ere: ating water shortage and potentially deadlywater.” V" T‘ ' ‘ ‘ ’ Total dissolved soluble (TDS) and sulfate levels can reach toxic levels when water levels are low. High lev- els of TDS and sulfates lead to herd health issues and low calf weightsp Another concern with low water levels is that cattle can become stuck in the mud. . , Here is a decision guide for live- stock producers based on trigger dates to plan for drought impacts: ‘ April 15—30 0 Assess pasture drinking water conditions.
