TODAY ON AGDAY

APRIL 5, 2013

 

LAND VALUES:

LAND PRICES CONTINUE TO SURGE, INCLUDING AREAS OUTSIDE THE TRADITIONAL CORNBELT. AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

ELEVATOR FIRE:

A GRAIN BIN EXPLOSION IN CENTRAL, NEBRASKA THIS WEEK HAS LEFT ONE PERSON INJURED.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO OUR AGDAY AFFILIATE IN GRAND ISLAND, NEBRASKA.

GRAIN BIN SAFETY:

THE RISK IS THERE YEAR-ROUND - GRAIN BIN ENTRAPMENTS. FARMERS WILL GET INTO A HURRY AND NOT TAKE THE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS TO KEEP THEM SAFE ONCE THEY CLIMB INSIDE.  IN ARKANSAS, FIRST RESPONDERS AND FARMERS ATTENDED A TRAINING SESSION WHERE THEY LEARNED HOW TO RESCUE VICTIMS OF GRAIN BIN ENTRAPMENTS AND SAFETY PROCEDURES TO PREVENT THEM. KEN MOORE HAS DETAILS FROM ARKANSAS FARM BUREAU.

DROUGHT MONITOR:

THE LATEST DROUGHT MONITOR SHOWS MUCH OF THE CENTRAL PLAINS STILL PARCHED FOR MOISTURE. A FRONT PASSED ACROSS THE SOUTH AND LEFT UP TO A COUPLE INCHES OF RAIN IN PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHERN PLAINS. THE WIDESPREAD RAIN WAS WELCOMED IN MANY PASTURES AND FOR FORAGE PRODUCTION IN OKLAHOMA. BUT AS YOU CAN SEE, THE MAJORITY OF CATTLE COUNTRY REMAINS IN INTENSE DROUGHT.
