LFTB CARGILL:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. AS FOOD LABELING DEBATE ERUPTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY, ONE MAJOR BEEF PROCESSOR ANNOUNCES HOW IT WILL ADDRESS THE ISSUE OF FINELY TEXTURED BEEF.

BPI UPATE

MEANWHILE AS FAR AS B-P-I'S LAWSUIT AGAINST A-B-C, KTIV - OUR AFFILIATE IN SIOUX CITY IOWA - SAYS A HEARING WILL BE HELD NEXT MONTH TO DECIDE WHETHER THE LAWSUIT WILL BE DISMISSED.

NEBRASKA BEEF:

FOR MANY CATTLE PRODUCERS IN THE CENTRAL PLAINS, PASTURES GREENED-UP THIS YEAR. THAT'S A BIG SWITCH FROM LAST YEARS DROUGHT. BUT WHILE GRAZING CONDITIONS HAVE IMPROVED, RANCHERS ARE STILL FEELING THE EFFECTS OF 2012. NATIONAL REPORTER TYNE MORGAN RE-VISITED A PRODUCER NEAR LINCOLN, NEBRASKA ABOUT THE STRONGER OUTLOOK.

EU BEEF:

IN OTHER NEWS, THE U.S. HAS OFFICIALLY ENDED ITS BAN ON EUROPEAN BEEF WHICH HAS BEEN INEFFECT SINCE THE 90'S. THE USDA SET STRICT STANDARDS -- ABOVE AND BEYOND WORLD PROTOCOLS FOLLOWING THE DISCOVERY OF BSE. THE EUROPEAN UNION SAYS THE BAN HAS BEEN UNJUSTIFIED AND IS PRAISING THE U.S. DECISION TO FOLLOW INTERNATONAL TRADE RULES.

CHICKEN PRODUCTION:

A BIG CORN CROP AND LOWER PRICES HAS POULTRY PRODUCERS ALREADY ADDING TO THE FLOCK. AN INCREASE IN SUPPLY COULD MEAN LOWER PRICES AT THE STORE LATER ON.
ACCORDING TO USDA, PROCESSORS HARVESTED MORE THAN 700 MILLION CHICKENS IN SEPTEMBER THAT'S UP 4 AND HALF PERCENT YEAR OVER YEAR. THOSE BIRDS ALSO WEIGHED MORE. ADD TO IT STRONG DEMAND AND THE AG DEPARTMENT EXPECTS BROILERS OR YOUNG CHICKENS TO AVERAGE BETWEEN 98 AND A DOLLAR A POUND-- THAT'S 15 PERCENT HIGHER THAN LAST YEAR.

COLORADO SECESSION:

FOLLOWING TUESDAY'S ELECTIONS IT APPEARS THERE WON'T BE A FIFTY-FIRST STATE ANYTIME SOON. ONLY ABOUT HALF OF 11 COUNTIES IN NORTHERN COLORADO VOTED IN FAVOR OF SECESSION. SEAN CONWAY, COMMISSIONER, WELD COUNTY: "I THINK TODAY THERE IS UNIVERSAL ACCEPTANCE THAT THERE IS A DISCONNECT. IT'S A PROBLEM FOR THE STATE OF COLORADO AND I THINK IT REQUIRES ALL OF US TO HAVE BETTER DIALOGUE AND FIGURE OUT WAYS HOW WE ADDRESS WHAT CREATED THIS DISCONNECT.'' ENGLISH) JEFFREY HARE, SPOKESMAN, THE 51ST STATE INITIATIVE: "ALL WE'RE TRYING TO SAY IN THE CONTEXT OF THE DIVIDE IN POLITICS IS WHY IS THAT WE SHOULD CONTINUE TO BANG OUR HEADS TRYING WITH VERY DIFFERENT VALUE SYSTEMS AND VERY DIFFERENT VIEWS ON THE WORLD AND POLITICS?

WASHINGTON GMO:

MEANWHILE, VOTERS IN WASHINGTON STATE, APPARENTLY SAID NO TO MANDATORY LABELING OF GMO FOODS. THE MEASURE APPARENTLY LOSING BY A MARGIN OF 45 TO 55 PERCENT...ALTHOUGH THE LATEST INDICATION SHOWS THERE'S STILL SOME 300-THOUSAND MAIL IN BALLOTS TO COUNT--WHICH COULD SWING THE FINAL OUTCOME. THE LABELING LAW WOULD MAKE THE STATE THE FIRST IN THE NATION TO REQUIRE THE LISTING OF GMO FOODS. THE SEATTLE TIMES REPORTS, OPPONENTS GAVE SOME 22 MILLION DOLLARS TO DEFEAT THE MEASURE..A RECORD FOR A BALLOT INITIATIVE. OREGON IS LIKELY THE NEXT PLACE LABELING SUPPORTERS WILL TARGET...THAT'S EXPECTED IN 2014.

CROP WATCH:

SOME MIDWEST FARMERS ARE STRUGGLING WITH WEATHER RIGHT NOW. MIKE HOFFMAN HAS A LOOK IN THIS MORNIGN'S CROPWATCH. IF IT'S NOT RAIN, THEN IT'S SNOW, RIGHT MIKE?

ANALYSIS:

AS HARVEST ROLLS IN, SO ARE THE FINAL BUSINESS NUMBERS FOR THE 2013 SEASON.
IN ANALYSIS THIS MORNING, FARM DIRECTOR AL PELL GRABS A CALCULATOR FOR A LESSON IN FIGURING OUT THE CROP INSURANCE PAYOUT INTO THE BOTTOM LINE.

NAYLOR HAY BARN:

AN OLD PRAIRIE SCHOOL IN NORTH DAKOTA HAS RECEIVED AN EXTREME MAKEOVER FROM A FORMER STUDENT. FLOYD MILLER IS GETTING HIGH MARKS FOR DESIGN AND CREATIVITY AFTER HE TURNED A CLUSTER OF CLASSROOMS INTO AN FUNCTIONAL HAY BARN AND STORAGE SHED. CLIFF NAYLOR FROM AGDAY AFFILIATE KFYR HAS OUR STORY.

MED DIET:

THE SECRET TO A LONG AND HEALTHY LIFE--FOR WOMEN AT LEAST--MAY LIE ULTIMATELY WITH YOUR DIET. AND ACCORDING TO RESEARCHERS, SOME DIETS ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS.

CAPITOL CHRISTMAS TREE:

HALLOWEEN WAS JUST A WEEK AGO, BUT STORES AND SHOPPING MALLS ARE ALREADY IN HIGH GEAR FOR CHRISTMAS. AND WHILE IT MAY BE A BIT EARLY FOR YOU TO CUT-DOWN YOUR FRESH CHRISTMAS TREE, ONE SIGNIFICANT TREE HAS ALREADY BEEN SAWED AND IS NOW BEING SHIPPED TO THE NATION'S CAPITOL.
