PEDV UPDATE:

GOOD MORNING I'M TYNE MORGAN IN FOR CLINTON GRIFFITHS. THE NUMBER OF STATES WITH CONFIRMED CASES OF A DEVASTATING PIG VIRUS CONTINUES TO CLIMB. AS 4-H AND F-F-A EXHIBITORS PREPARE FOR A NEW SEASON IN THE SHOW-RING, VETERINARY SPECIALISTS ARE URGING PRODUCERS TO BE MINDFUL OF BIOSECURITY MEASURES TO HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE ON THE FARM. KENT FADDIS WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI TELL US THIS EXTRA SAFETY IS KEEPING THE NUMBER OF CONFIRMED CASES LOW IN THE SHOW-ME STATE.

DISASTER SIGNUP:

FARMERS AND RANCHERS CAN SIGN-UP FOR DISASTER ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS BEGINNING TUESDAY, APRIL 15. THE LIVESTOCK INDEMNITY PROGRAM AND THE LIVESTOCK FORAGE DISASTER PROGRAM WILL PROVIDE PAYMENTS TO ELIGIBLE PRODUCERS FOR LIVESTOCK DEATHS AND GRAZING LOSSES THAT HAVE OCCURRED SINCE THESE PROGRAMS EXPIRED IN SEPTEMBER 2011.

IKEA WIND ENERGY:

A POPULAR FURNITURE BRAND IS INVESTING IN GREEN ENERGY. IKEA SAYS ITS PART OF THE COMPANY'S GOAL IS TO GENERATE AS MUCH RENEWABLE ENERGY AS IT CONSUMES BY 20-20.

HURICANE OUTLOOK:

THE LATEST HURRICANE FORECAST IS OUT, AND IT'S GOOD NEWS FOR THOSE LIVING ON THE COAST. COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY'S DEPARTMENT OF ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCE RELASES THE OUTLOOK EACH YEAR. AND THIS YEAR, THE SCIENTISTS SAY CHANCES FOR A MAJOR HURRICANE ARE SLIM. THE FORECAST POITNS TO NINE NAMED STORMS, THREE HURRICANS AND ONLY ONE MAJOR HURRICANE. WE'VE HEARD ABOUT CHANCES OF EL NINO-- WELL, THAT'S CONTRIBUTING TO THE LOWER NUMBERS. SCIENTEISTS SAY BETWEEN the WEATHER PATTER CALLED EL NINO AND A COOOLING IN THE TROPICAL ATLANTIC OCEAN WATERS, THEY DON'T SEE A LOT OF MAJOR STORMS BREWING.  THE DEPARTMENT WILL UDPATE ITS FORECAST IN JUNE AND JULY.
