TODAY ON AGDAY
AUGUST 26, 2014
 
OPEN HEADLINES:
COMING UP TODAY ON AGDAY - THE LONG TERM DROUGHT OUTLOOK ISN'T GOOD FOR FOLKS OUT WEST. BEES STRUGGLING IN THE CALIFORNIA DROUGHT .IT'S VERY PAINFUL TO HAVE TO SAY, 'WE DON'T HAVE IT." PLUS, CATTLE ON FEED CONTINUE TO SHRINK...WHY THAT COULD BE GOOD NEWS FOR COW CALF PRODUCERS AT FALL SALES. IN AGRIBUSINESS...FROM CROP TOUR TO CROP MARKETING. AND WHY ARE CITRUS GROWERS BURNING TREES IN FLORIDA? AGDAY BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE ALL NEW CHEVY SILVERADO - THE 2014 NORTH AMERICAN TRUCK OF THE YEAR.
NOAA DROUGHT:
CLINTON… GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. DROUGHT AND DRY WEATHER---IT'S BEEN A THEME AND A FRUSTRATION FOR THE AG INDUSTRY IN RECENT YEARS. AS NORTH AMERICA HEADS FOR FALL, THE PROBLEM IS LIKELY TO PERSIST OUT WEST. ...AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.
CALI BEES:
CLINTON... CALIFORNIA'S RECORD DROUGHT IS HURTING HONEY SUPPLIES AND RAISING PRICES FOR CONSUMERS. THE LACK OF RAINFALL MEANS FEWER CROPS AND WILDFLOWERS THAT PROVIDE THE NECTAR BEES NEED TO MAKE HONEY. TERRY CHEA HAS DETAILS.
CATTLE ON FEED:
CLINTON…CATTLE NUMBERS CONTINUE TO BE TIGHT ESPECIALLY FOR FEEDERS.
IN USDA'S LATEST CATTLE ON FEED REPORT, INVENTORY NUMBERS, PLACEMENTS AND MARKETINGS ALL DECREASING JULY.
CROP WATCH:
CLINTON…MIKE HOFFMAN IS JUST BACK FROM VACATION. HE CHECK'S IN NOW FROM THE AGDAY WEATHER-CENTER. WELCOME BACK MIKE.
TEASE:
CLINTON…THE OLD ADAGE SAYS BIG CROPS GET BIGGER. SO WHAT HAPPENS TO PRICES WHEN IT APPEARS TO BE A RECORD CROP IN THE FIELDS RIGHT NOW? WE'LL TAKE A LOOK IN TODAY'S ANALYSIS.
FPS:
CLINTON…THE 2014 FARM PROGRESS SHOW IS NOW UNDERWAY IN BOONE, IOWA. THE SHOW IS TOUTED AS ONE OF THE BIGGEST OPEN-AIR FARM SHOWS IN THE COUNTRY. IN YEARS PAST, SLOPPY CONDITIONS HAVE MADE IT DIFFICULT FOR ATTENDEES AND EXHIBITORS. BUT THIS YEAR THEY'VE INCREASED THE AMOUNT OF PAVED ROADS AT THE VENUE. IT'S ACTUALLY A TEST-SITE FOR IMPROVED ROADS IN THE STATE.
OF COURSE, THE SHOW RELIES ON SEVERAL NEIGHBORLY FARMERS TO OPEN THEIR LAND FOR PARKING AND DISPLAYS.
TEASE:
CLINTON…BIG BUZZ SURROUNDS A CROSS BORDER FAST FOOD SUPER DEAL.
WE HAVE DETAILS IN FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY.
ITC FLA CITRUS:
CLINTON…THROUGH FREEZES, HURRICANES AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT, THE FLORIDA CITRUS INDUSTRY HAS ALWAYS STOOD STRONG. BUT THE BIGGEST THREAT RIGHT NOW IS A TINY PEST. WE'VE REPORTED ON THE ASIAN CITRUS PYLLID GETTING THE UPPERHAND. AND AS TONY WINTON TELLS US THE PRESSURE IS ON TO FIND A FIX.
ITC TAG:
CLINTON…STILL TO COME - A NAME KNOWN ACROSS CANADA FOR COFFEE AND DONUTS COULD SOON GET "CROWNED". FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY IS NEXT.
BURGER KING:
CLINTON… MERGER TALKS RATTLED MARKETS ON MONDAY AS BURGER KING AND CANADA'S DONUT AND COFFEE POWERHOUSE-- TIM HORTONS ANNOUNCING TALKS TO JOIN TEAMS.
BETTER SNACK FOODS:
CLINTON… IT LIKELY WON'T BE DONUTS AND BURGERS---BUT ACCORDING TO NEW RESEARCH, THE BLURRING OF LINES BETWEEN MEALS AND SNACKS IS LIKELY TO SPAWN NEW DEMAND FOR HEALTHY SNACKS.
GOODBYE:
CLINTON… THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN. FOR BETSY JIBBEN AND MIKE HOFFMAN, I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. HAVE A GREAT DAY.
RFD PROMO:
CLINTON… TUESDAY ON AGDAY, THE SEASONAL DROUGHT PREDICTION ISN'T GOOD NEWS FOR WEST COAST FARMERS. PLUS, BEES STRUGGLING IN THE GOLDEN STATE…AND FLORIDA CITRUS FIGHTING ITS OWN BATTLE WITH A TREE KILLING DISEASE... JOIN 8 EASTERN ON RFD.
STATION PROMO:
CLINTON… WEDNESDAY ON AGDAY, HE'S GARNERED WORLD WIDE ATTENTION WITH HIS TRUMBONE SERENADE...NATS...WE STOP BY THIS KANSAS RANCHER'S PLACE FOR A ONE ON ONE WITH THIS VIRAL VIDEO CREATOR. JOIN ME--CLINTON GRIFFITHS--WEEKDAYS FOR AGDAY.
