WE'VE BEEN HEARING REPORTS FROM ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY ABOUT YIELDS COMING IN BETTER THAN EXPECTED. NATIONAL REPORTER TYNE MORGAN CONTINUES HER TREK ACROSS INTERSTATE 80, TODAY STOPPING IN ILLINOIS, TO SEE IF THAT HOLDS TRUE IN THAT LARGE PRODUCTION STATE. TYNE, YOU'RE RE-VISITING A FARMER WHO WAS UNDERWATER IN THE SPRING, HOW DID THINGS TURN AROUND?

ANALYSIS:

NOW PAST THE TWO WEEK MARK ON A GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN, AGRICULTURE HAS WATCHED REPORT DATES COME AND GO WITH DATA ON HOLD DUE TO A LACK OF FEDERAL WORKS. FARM DIRECTOR AL PELL, DISCUSSES THOSE GOVERNMENT REPORTS AND HOW ITS IMPACTING TRADERS IN TODAY'S ANALYSIS.

OUTDOORS ON THE FARM:

HOW DO YOU GET YOUR DOGS READY FOR THE FALL HUNTING SEASON? PRO FARMER EDITOR CHIP FLORY IS BACK WITH EXPERT DOG TRAINER TODD STERRETT OF ARROWHEAD KENNELS. ONE THING IS FOR CERTAIN, CHIP'S LAB REMINGTON NEEDS SOME WORK AFTER A LONG BREAK FROM HUNTING.

GREAT CALIFORNIA PUMPKIN:

CALIFORNIA'S NAPA VALLEY IS KNOWN WORLD-WIDE FOR ITS GRAPE ORCHARDS AND VINEYARDS, BUT IT ALSO HAS GROWING REPUTATION FOR GIGANTIC PUMPKINS.

OJ SALES:

ONCE A BREAKFAST SUPERSTAR, ORANGE JUICE SALES ARE SLIPPING. THE WALL STREET JOURNAL REPORTS AMERICANS PURCHASED JUST 563 MILLION GALLONS LAST YEAR.
