CHINESE SHIPMENTS:

CHINESE OFFICIALS HAVE BEEN REJECTING U-S CORN, BUT SOME ANALYSTS SAY THIS WON'T BE A HUGE HIT TO EXPORT DEMAND. .AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

WHILE THE CALENDAR MAY SAY 2014, SOME FARMERS HAVE UNFINISHED BUSINESS LEFT OVER FROM 2013.

BEEF TODAY:

IN BEEF TODAY, HEIFERS FOR SOUTH DAKOTA IS A PROGRAM PROVIDING BOTH HOPE AND FINANCIAL RELEIF TO RANCHERS WHO SUFFERED BIG LIVESTOCK LOSSES DURING THAT EARLY OCTOBER BLIZZARD.

EACH YEAR, ONE OF THE TOP NEW YEAR'S RESOUTION IS TO LOSE WEIGHT. WHETHER YOU DO THAT BY EATING BETTER OR BECOMING MORE ACTIVE, IT'S A GOOD GOAL FOR PEOPLE OF ALL AGES.
