TODAY ON AGDAY

NOVEMBER 01, 2013

 

WET WEATHER:

A LARGE STORM SYSTEM THIS WEEK IS LEAVING MANY FIELDS SOAKED AND COMBINES AND PICKERS PARKED. THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

CATTLE ON FEED:

USDA RELEASED ITS CATTLE ON FEED REPORT YESTERDAY. IT WAS POSTPONED DUE TO THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN. THE REPORT SHOWED CATTLE AND CALVES ON FEED AT 10 POINT 1 MILLION HEAD. THAT'S DOWN 8 PERCENT FROM THE SAME TIME LAST YEAR. THE NUMBER OF HEIFERS AND HEIFER CALVES WAS ALSO DOWN 8 PERCENT FROM 2012.

FARM BILL CONFERENCE:

AS WE'VE BEEN REPORTING, THE FARM BILL CONFERENCE COMMITTEE STARTED DICUSSIONS WEDNESDAY. PROFARMER'S WASHINGTON CONSULTANT JIM WIESEMEYER SAYS CONFEREES MADE IT CELAR DURING THEIR FIRST SESSION THAT AN AGREEMENT WON'T BE REACHED QUICKLY. HE SAYS THERE ARE TOO MANY LINGERING ISSUES STANDING IN THE WAY. HE SAYS HOUSE MEMBERS ALSO MADE IT CLEAR THEY DIDN'T LIKE THE SENATE'S PROPOSED RESTIRICTIONS ON CROP INSURANCE. WHILE TALKS JUST STARTED, THE COMMITTEE WILL BE DISRUPTED BY THE HOUSE'S RECESS, WHICH RUNS TODAY THROUGH TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 12TH.

WISCONSIN POULTRY:

EARLIER THIS WEEK, WE REPORTED JAPAN LIFTED ITS BAN ON ARKANSAS POULTRY IMPORTS. NOW OFFICIALS ANNOUNCED THEY ARE DOING THE SAME ON POULTRY PRODUCTS FROM WISCONSIN. AS WITH ARKANSAS, JAPAN HALTED SHIPMENTS AFTER AVIAN INFLUENZA WAS FOUND IN THE STATE

CROP WATCH:

FROM RAIN TO ICE, MIKE HOFFMAN HAS SOME DREARY REPORTS IN THIS MORNING'S CROPWATCH. GOOD MORNING, MIKE.

SWEET POTATO HARVEST:

SWEET POTATO PRODUCTION IS LARGELY A SOUTHERN THING. IN THE U-S, NORTH CAROLINA IS THE LARGEST PRODUCER, FOLLOWED BY MISSISSIPPI AND LOUISISANA. LOUISIANA'S HARVEST IS CURRENTLY 88 PERCENT COMPLETE, THAT'S 17 POINTS BETTER THAN AVERAGE.
AS LSU AG CENTER'S TOBIE BLANCHARD REPORTS, HARVEST IS PROGRSSING WELL, BUT A WET SPRING MEANT FARMERS GOT THEIR CROP IN LATE. DESPITE THE CHALLENGES, MANY GROWERS ARE SITTING ON A GOOD CROP THIS YEAR.

NATIONAL FFA CONVENTION:

60 THOUSAND FFAers ARE IN LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY THIS WEEK FOR THE NATIONAL FFA CONVENTION KICKS OFF. THE CONVENTION HASN'T BEEN IN LOUISVILLE SINCE 2005. LOUSIVILLE WILL CONTINUE TO BE THE HOME FOR THE FFA CONVENTION THROUGH 2015.
THEN, IT'S BACK TO INDIANAPOLIS FOR 3 YEARS. NOT ONLY IS IT A GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR MANY TEENS, IT WILL ALSO GIVE AN ECONOMIC BOOST TO LOUISVILLE'S ECONOMY, AT THE PRICETAG OF 40 MILLION DOLLARS.

PROFIT BRIEFING:

IN AGRIBUSINESS TODAY, THERE IS CURRENTLY A SUPPLY CRUNCH IN FOR BOTH HOGS AND CATTLE. HOWEVER, ON THE PORK SIDE, IT'S NOT SHOWING UP IN THE NUMBERS JUST YET.
IN TODAY'S PROFIT BRIEFING, THE GUYS AT PROFARMER WEIGH IN ON HOW LONG THIS SUPPLY GAME COULD LAST.

NEWSLETTER:

IF YOU'RE A SUBSCRIBER TO THE PROFARMER NEWSLETTER, HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT WHEN IT COMES OUT TODAY. THE TEAM WILL LOOK AT THE IMPRESSIVE STRING OF CORN EXPORT SALES. PLUS, IS PEDV THREATENING DOMESTIC SOYBEAN MEAL DEMAND?
PLUS - AS WE MENTIONED - THE FARM BILL IS HEADING INTO THE HOME STRETCH. BUT THAT'S A LONG STRETCH.

I AM ANGUS:

THE PATH LEADING BACK TO THE FAMILY FARM OR RANCH ISN'T ALWAYS CLEAR CUT. FOR ONE WYOMING RANCH FAMILY, IT INCLUDED A PIT STOP FOR A MUSICAL CAREER. IN THE ON GOING "I AM ANGUS" SERIES PROVIDED BY THE AMERICAN ANGUS ASSOCIATION, WE MEET A FATHER- DAUGHTER DUO WHO'S WINDING ROADS ARE STRENGTHENING THEIR FAMILY TIES.

OUR THANKS TO THE AMERICAN ANGUS ASSOCIATION FOR SHARING THAT HISTORY. YOU CAN SEE MORE OF THE I AM ANGUS SERIES ON THEIR YOU TUBE PAGE. UP NEXT, IT'S A SAUCE STIRRING UP CONTROVERSY AND A CHICKEN RECIPE THAT'S QUICK TO WHIP UP. DONT' GO ANYWHERE, FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY IS NEXT.

RECIPE:

TODAY'S FROM THE FARM FAVORITES COMES TO US FROM THE EAST COAST. IT'S CALLED TERRIBLY EASY CHICKEN. NOT ONLY IS IT SIMPLE TO MAKE, IT LOOKS ABSOLUTELY SCRUMPTIOUS.

HOT PEPPERS:

IT'S A HOT SAUCE THAT'S TAKING THE COUNTRY BY STORM. BUT FOR THE CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS WHO LIVE WHERE IT'S PRODUCED,, IT'S CAUSING A FLOOD OF COMPLAINTS.
