TODAY ON AGDAY

JANUARY 31, 2014

 

DROUGHT MONITOR:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. WITH EACH PASSING DAY, THE DROUGHT DISASTER IN CALIFORNIA GROWS MORE SEVERE.

CALIFORNIA CATTLE:

CROPS AND HERDS ALIKE ARE IN ROUGH SHAPE. THE EPIC DROUGHT IS FORCING RANCHERS TO SELL THEIR CATTLE BECAUSE THEIR PASTURES ARE TOO DRY FOR GRAZING AND IT'S GETTING TOO EXPENSIVE TO FEED THEM.  WE'VE SEEN THAT SAME STORY PLAY-OUT IN TEXAS. TERRY CH-AY HAS OUR STORY FROM CALIFORNIA.

CROP WATCH:

MIKE HOFFMAN JOINS US NOW WITH CROP WATCH.

LIVESTOCK DISASTER:

THE NEW FARM BILL - IF APPROVED BY THE SENATE - PROVIDES SOME RELIEF FOR STRUGGLING RANCHERS. IT RESTORES USDA'S LIVESTOCK DISASTER PROGRAMS. THOSE PROGRAMS ARE INTENDED TO HELP PRODUCERS, LIKE THE SOUTH DAKOTA RANCHERS WHO LOST THOUSANDS OF HEAD OF CATTLE BY THE FREAK OCTOBER BLIZZARD. IF PASSED BY THE SENATE, THE NEW FARM LAW WOULD COMPENSATE FARMERS AND RANCHERS FOR LOSSES IN 2012, 2013, AND SUBSEQUENT YEARS. THE LIVESTOCK INDEMNITY PROGRAM COVERS 75-PERCENT OF THE MARKET VALUE FOR EXCESSIVE LIVESTOCK LOSSES BECAUSE OF ADVERSE WEATHER.
