TODAY ON AGDAY

OCTOBER 31, 2013

 

CATTLE ON FEED:

POSSIBLE SIGNALS OF HERD REBUILDING AND RENTENTION COULD COME OUT OF THE USDA TODAY. .AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

BEEF TODAY:

USDA WILL RELEASE ITS OCTOBER CATTLE ON FEED REPORT. THE REPORT WAS POSTPONED DUE TO THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN. EXPECTATIONS ARE HIGH, AS IMPROVED FEED CONDITIONS AND PRICES COULD MEAN LESS CATTLE ON FEED.

FARM BILL:

THE CONFERENCE COMMITTEE BEGAN TALKS ON THE FARM BILL YESTERDAY AFTERNOON.
PRIOR TO THIS, THE FARM BILL HADN'T BEEN ON THE WASHINGTON BOOKS SINCE JULY WHEN THE HOUSE PASSED ITS VERSION OF THE BILL. THE HOUSE AND SENATE VERSIONS LOOK VERY DIFFERENT, WITH THE BIGGEST DISCREPENCY BEING THE SNAP PORTION OF THE BILL.
WE'LL CONTINUE TO BRING YOU COVERAGE AS THE LEGISLATION PROGRESSES THROUGHOUT THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR.

ARKANSAS BEANS:

AFTER SEVERAL YEARS OF COMING CLOSE, EVERYTHING CAME TOGETHER FOR THREE ARKANSAS SOYBEAN FARMERS TO ECLIPSE 100 BUSHELS PER ACRE IN THE 'RACE FOR 100 YIELD CONTEST." IT'S SPONSORED BY THE STATE'S SOYBEAN ASSOCIATION AND SOYBEAN PROMOTION BOARD. KEN MOORE HAS DETAILS ON THE TRIPLE DIGIT RESULTS.

ARKANSAS POULTRY:

ALSO FROM ARKANSAS - JAPAN SAYS IT WILL LIFT ITS BAN ON POULTRY PRODUCTS FROM THAT STATE. OFFICIALS SUSPENDED IMPORTS AFTER AVIAN INFLUENZA WAS FOUND IN AN ARKANSAS FLOCK EARLIER THIS YEAR. CHINA STILL HAS ITS BAN IN EFFECT. IT'S STILL UNCLEAR HOW LONG THAT BAN WILL CONTINUE TO BE IN PLACE.

CROP WATCH:

FROM A STRUGGLE WITH CROP MOISTURE, TO SO MUCH CORN, ELEVATORS ARE WAVING THE WHITE FLAG, MIKE HOFFMAN HAS DETAILS IN CROPWATCH.     

SHISSLER:

IN AGRIBUINESS TODAY, AL PELL GETS THE INS AND OUT OF NOT ONLY DETERMINING THE INSURANCE PRICE THIS MONTH, BUT WHY CORN IS PROVING TO BE MUCH MORE FAVORABLE THAN BEANS THIS YEAR. AL.

BELL WITCH:

A WORD OF CAUTION SHOULD YOU VISIT ADAMS, TENNESSEE. IT'S IN THAT SMALL TOWN WHERE YOU'D BETTER BEWARE OF THE SPIRIT KATE - MORE FAMOUSLY KNOWN AS "THE BELL WITCH." IN THIS "BEST OF" REPORT PROVIDED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE, CHUCK DENNEY SAYS SOME LOCAL FARMERS SAY THE BELL WITCH IS GOOD FOR THEIR BUSINESS.

FOOD ALLERGIES:

IN FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY - THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS ISSUED ITS FIRST GUIDELINES ON HOW TO PROTECT CHILDREN WITH FOOD ALLERGIES WHILE AT SCHOOL. THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL RELEASED THE VOLUNTARY GUIDANCE WEDNESDAY.

CANDY AMOUNT:

IF YOU'RE A CANDY-A-HOLIC, HALLOWEEN HITS THE SPOT. BUT JUST HOW MUCH CANDY IS CONSUMED ON THIS HOLIDAY IS RATHER SCARY.
