TODAY ON AGDAY

NOVEMBER 21, 2013

 

MCOOL UPDATE:

GOOD MORNING I'M TYNE MORGAN. CLINTON GRIFFITHS IS ON ASSIGNMENT. COUNTRY OF ORIGIN LABELING IS SCHEDULED TO TAKE EFFECT THIS WEEKEND, BUT SOME RANCHERS HOLD ONTO HOPE CONGRESS WILL ACT BEFORE RETALIATION SETS IN. THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

BEEF OUTLOOK:

CATTLE FUTURES POSTED THE BIGGEST TWO-DAY DROP IN TEN MONTHS THIS WEEK. THIS COMES AS SPECULATORS BELIEVE BEEF PRODUCTION IS OUTPACING DEMAND.

CHINA PIGS:

MEANWHILE, CHINESE PIG FARMERS ARE HAVING TO FIND OTHER LOCATIONS TO FARM. THE CENTRAL HUNAN PROVINCE SAYS IT WANTS TO SAVE ITS POLLUTED MOTHER RIVER BY EITHER RELOCATING OR CLOSING ANY PIG FARMS THAT ARE LOCATED ALONG the RIVER. THE RIVER HAS BEEN POLLUTED BY WASTE, AS WELL AS ANIMAL CARCASSES. THIS MEANS HUNDREDS OF PIG AND POULTRY FARMS WILL NEED TO MOVE BY 2016. HUNAN IS CHINA'S TOP PIG PRODUCING AREA.

BRAZIL CROP DAMAGE:

SPEAKING OF COMMODITIES, ALL EYES ARE ON BRAZIL'S CROP, AS FARMERS ARE EXPECTED TO PRODUCE A RECORD NUMBER OF SOYBEANS THIS WINTER. REPORTS NOW INDICATE CATEPILLARS MAY STAND IN THE WAY. BRAZIL'S AGRIUCLTURE MINDISTRY DECLARED A STATE OF EMERGENCY IN MATO GROSS {MATTA GROSSOE}. CATERPILLARS HAVE INFESTED THE CROPS CAUSING DEVESTATION. THIS WILL CAUSE PRODUCTION COSTS TO SPIKE AS MORE INSECTICIDE APPLICATIONS WILL BE NEEDED.
