TODAY ON AGDAY

OCTOBER 10, 2013

 

FARM BILL APPOINTEES:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. EVEN AMID A GOVERNMENT STALEMATE--WORD THAT WORK ON A NEW FIVE YEAR FARMBILL MAY YET MOVE FORWARD.

THUNE LETTER:

IN OUR BEEF TODAY REPORT, REPRESENATIVE NOEM'S COUNTERPART SENATOR JOHN THUNE IS MAKING HIS OWN PLEA FOR SOUTH DAKOTA RANCHERS. HE WROTE TWO LETTERS--ONE TO SPEAKER BOEHNER THE OTHER TO AG SECRETARY TOM VILSACK ASKING FOR ASSISTANCE FOR THOSE SUFFERING HISTORIC LOSSES. TO BOEHNER HE ASKED THE CONGRESSMAN TO QUICKLY APPOINT CONFEREES.

DAKOTA CATTLE:

THE LIVESTOCK DEVASTATION APPEARS TO THE WORST IN SOUTH DAKOTA WHERE UP TO 30 INCHES OF SNOW FELL. AS PASTURES MELT ECONOMIC LOSSES COULD BE IN THE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS MAKING IT THE WORST WINTER STORM IN THE STATE'S HISTORY. REPORTER, CLIFF NAYLOR WITH AFFILIATE K-F-Y-R TRAVELED TO NORTHWEST SOUTH DAKOTA. I WILL TELL YOU, EVEN THOUGH WE ARE AN AG SHOW, THIS STORY CONTAINS SOME GRAPHIC IMAGES, SO VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED

HENDERSON:

THESE CATTLE LOSSES COME AT A TIME OF RELATIVELY STRONG PRICES AND FALLING FEED COSTS. THOSE TWO INCENTIVES HAVE INDUSTRY WATCHERS ANTICIPATING A REBOUND IN THE NUMBER OF CATTLE IN U.S. PASTURES. BEEF TODAY EDITOR GREG HENDERSON SAYS HE THINKS REBUILDING IS ABOUT TO SERIOUSLY BEGIN.

PEEL CATTLE:

IN THE MEANTIME, ONE OF THE BIGGEST IMPORTERS OF BEEF TO THE U.S. ISN'T SHIPPING AS MANY CATTLE THIS YEAR. IN IT'S LATEST GOVERNMENT DATA, MEXICO EXPORTS TO AMERICA ARE DOWN NEARLY 50 PERCENT...COMPARED TO LAST YEAR'S HISTORIC SURGE. BY THE END OF THE YEAR, OKLAHOMA STATE'S DERRELL PEEL SAYS MEXICAN IMPORTS COULD BE DOWN 800-THOUSAND HEAD.

CROP WATCH:

WHILE CATTLEMEN KEEP PREPARING FOR WINTER. HARVEST ROLLS ON. METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN IS IN THE AGDAY WEATHERCENTER WITH THIS MORING'S CROP WATCH.

EYE IN THE SKY:

TODAY WE'RE WRAPPING OUR FOUR WEEK SERIES--EYE IN THE SKY. WE'RE RETURNING TO THE FIELDS ABOVE ILLINOIS WHERE KEN FERRY GETS A BIRDGS EYE VIEW OF CROPS, MATURITIES AND HOW HARVEST IS ROLLING ALONG.

ANALYSIS:

WHEAT PRICES HAVE RALLIED ABOUT 50 CENTS SINCE MID-SEPTEMBER. IT'S AT LEAST A LITTLE INCENTIVE FOR FOLKS IN THE MIDST OF PLANTING NEXT YEAR'S CROP. BUT COULD THAT RALLY ENTICE MORE FARMERS PUT WHEAT IN THE GROUND? FARM DIRECTOR AL PELL DISCUSSES THAT AND MARKET POTENTIAL IN THIS MORNING'S ANALYSIS.

CACHE RIVER CLEANUP:

WHEN IT COMES TO FLOODING, IT'S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT RECORD AMOUNTS OF WATER FALLING FROM THE SKY. SOMETIMES THERE'S JUST NO WHERE FOR WATER TO GO. THAT'S BEEN THE CASE FOR DECADES ALONG THE CACHE RIVER IN EASTERN ARKANSAS. KEN MOORE WITH THE ARKANSAS FARM BUREAU HAS THE STORY.

FARM RECIPE:

TODAY'S RECIPE WILL TRIGGER YOUR SWEET TOOTH. AND THE BEST PART? IT TAKES MINUTES TO PREPARE.
CALIFORNIA CSA:

AND FINALLY C-S-A'S--SHORT FOR COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE--HAVE REALLY GOTTEN POPULAR. FOR EXAMPLE, MANY TIMES--FOR A MONTHLY OR WEEKLY FEE--YOU GET A SHARE OF THE PRODUCE. WELL A NEW CALIFORNIA LAW MAY GETTING SOME CSA'S ATTENTION. THE NEW REGULATIONS CREATE AN OVERSIGHT SYSTEM FOR CSA'S INCLUDING GUIDELINES FOR FOOD HANDLING AND FOOD SAFETY. THE MEASURE WAS SUPPORTED BY A NUMBER OF CONSUMER AND FARM GROUPS.
