TODAY ON AGDAY
SEPTEMBER 17, 2012

TOUGH PORK YEAR:

Good morning I’m Clinton Griffiths. Higher feed costs and lower pork prices are creating record losses for pork producer...and that's our top story on AgDay. Meanwhile, pork exports dipped slightly in july.

DARREL GOOD:

The latest figures from the United States Department of Agriculture suggest farmers should probably just sell their corn right out of the field instead of storing for future sales. That's the recommendation from University of Illinois AG economist Darrel Good. Todd Gleason from the U-of-"I" has our story.

CROP WATCH:

Farmers in the Pacific Northwest are busy seeding winter wheat. That's just one of our stops in today's cropwatch.

BEST AG UNIVERSITIES:

If your high school senior is looking for an education in agricultural-related engineering, they may need to focus on the Midwest. Several of the top universities are in the cornbelt. That's according to the annual ranking from U.S. News and World Report. In case you're wondering, Harvard was ranked number one overall for national universities. Up next, Richard Brock joins Al Pell at the agribusiness desk to continue the discussion on pork.

TEXAS AG LEADERS:

As school reconvenes across the country, students are bringing a new level of leadership to their schools. In Texas, the state's farm bureau youth leadership conference is helping mold youth into leaders. As Ed Wolff with Texas Farm Bureau tells us, welcoming students in the top 20% of their class opens the door for a unique summer experience.Thanks, Ed. This was the first year for the conference to be held on Tarleton State University's campus
