TODAY ON AGDAY

NOVEMBER 13, 2013

 

CROP PROGRESS:

AS OLD MAN WINTER DROPS IN, SOME FARMERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY STILL HAVE CROPS IN THE GROUND. AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

I80 NEBRASKA:

LAST WEEK IT WAS NEBRASKA FARMERS WANTING THE SNOW TO STAY AWAY.
IN SOME AREAS, THE SYSTEM DROPPED 5 INCHES. I VISITED WITH NEBRASKA FARMERS ZACH HUNNICUTT JUST BEFORE THE SNOW HIT the CORNHUSKER STATE. HE JUST SAW RAIN, BUT THAT WAS ENOUGH TO KEEP HIM OUT OF the FIELD FOR A FEW DAYS.

CROP WATCH:

MEANWHILE, THE MOISTURE SITUATION in the EASTERN CORNBELT CONTINUES TO IMPROVE. AND AN UNWELCOMED FALL SNOW THIS WEEK MAY HELP IMPROVE THINGS A LITTLE MORE. MIKE HOFFMAN HAS DETAILS IN CROPWATCH. GOOD MORNING, MIKE.

RFS RUMOR:

RUMORS HAVE BEEN SURFACING THAT THE EPA MAY ANNOUNCE ITS NEW RENEWABLE FUELS STANDARDS THIS WEEK.

SOY ID:

MEANWHILE, IN AN EFFORT TO IMPROVE TRACEABILITY WITHIN THE SWINE INDUSTRY, MAJOR U-S SOW PACKERS AND PROCESSERS WILL REQUIRE PREMISES ID TAGS IN 2015. THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE PORK CHECKOFF. THE TAGS WILL NEED TO BE USDA-APPROVED, OFFICIAL PREMISES ID NUMBER SWINE TAGS. THIS WILL GO INTO EFFECT JANUARY 1, 2015.

TRACTOR SALES:

IN AGRIBUSINESS, WE HEARD FROM MACHINERY PETE ON MONDAY WHO SAID DUE TO UNCERTAINTLY IN WASHINGTON, SALES OF NEW EQUIPMENT ARE SLIPPING, WHILE SALES OF USED EQUIPMENT ARE ON THE RISE. THE ASSOCIATION OF EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURERS JUST CAME OUT WITH THEIR MONTHLY FLASH REPORT.

ANALYSIS:

IT'S MORE THAN JUST YIELDS DRIVING PRICES TODAY. OUTSIDE GROUPS HAVE BECOME LARGE MARKET PLAYERS. SO JUST HOW POWERFUL ARE THE FUNDS? AL PELL DISCUSSES IN ANALYSIS.

BEER TURKEY:

THANKSGIVING IS JUST TWO WEEKS AWAY. YOU MAY ALREADY HAVE SOME SPECIAL RECIPES IN MIND, INCLUDING THOSE TO ENHANCE THE TASTE OF YOUR TURKEY. A FARMER IN NEW HAMPSHIRE STUMBLED UPON HIS FOR IDEA TO MAKING TURKEYS TASTE EVEN BETTER. AND IT INVOLVES GIVING THE BIRDS A SPECIAL TREAT BEFORE THEY REACH THE CHOPPING BLOCK. MATT FRIEDMAN HAS DETAILS OF THE TIPSY TURKER.

THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATION:

THE PROCLAMATION WHICH ESTABLISHED THE FIRST FEDERAL THANKSGIVING DAY WILL BE SOLD TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER TOMORROW. IT WAS SIGNED BY PRESIDENT GEORGE WASHINGTON IN 1789. THE PIECE OF AMERICAN HISTORY HAS BEEN ON A NATIONAL VIEWING TOUR. CHRISTIE'S AUCTION HOUSE WILL HANDLE THE BIDDING. IT'S EXPECTED THE DOCUMENT WILL FOR FOR BETWEEN EIGHT AND 12 MILLION DOLLARS. IN CASE YOU'RE WONDERING - ANOTHER ORIGINAL COPY OF THE PROCLAMATION IS HELD AT THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS.

HARVEST OF THANKS:

AND SINCE WE'RE "TALKING TURKEY", I'D LIKE TO TAKE THIS TIME TO INVITE YOU AND THE ENTIRE FAMILY TO JOIN US FOR OUR ANNUAL THANKSGIVING SPECIAL - "A HARVEST OF THANKS". THIS HOLIDAY TRADITION ALLOWS US TO PAY TRIBUTE TO AMERICA'S FARMERS AND RANCHERS WHO HELP PUT AN ABUNDANT SUPPLY OF FOOD ON OUR TABLES.
THIS SPECIAL BROADCAST WILL AIR THANKSGIVING MORNING. WE VISITED FARMS FROM MICHIGAN TO MONTANA TO BRING YOU THEIR STORIES OF FAMILY AND TRADITION.
JOIN US FOR A HARVEST OF THANKS, RIGHT HERE ON AGDAY. UP NEXT FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY.

RAW MILK:

IN FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY, WISCONSIN SENATE COMMITTEE PASSED A BILL YESTERDAY TO LEGALIZE RAW MILK SALES. THE MEASURE WOULD ALLOW DAIRY FARMERS TO SELL UNPASTUERIZED MILK DIRECTLY TO CONSUMERS FROM A FARM.
CHRISTMAS TREE:

AND IT MAY LOOK LIKE CHRISTMAS OUTSIDE TO SOME WITH THIS WEEK'S SNOW, BUT IN NEW YORK CITY, THE CHEER IS IN the AIR WITH THE ARRIVAL OF THE ROCKEFELLER CENTER CHRISTMAS TREE.
