TODAY ON AGDAY

JUNE 24, 2014

PEDV ARKANSAS:

GOOD MORNING I'M TYNE MORGAN, IN FOR CLINTON GRIFFITHS. CHALK ANOTHER ONE ON THE BOARD AS THE LIST OF STATES WITH P-E-D-V JUST KEEPS GROWING… AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

CROP PROGRESS:
THERE'S NO DOUBT CROP CONDITIONS IN MANY PLACES THIS YEAR ARE IMPRESSIVE.  SOME FARMERS HAVEN'T BEEN SO LUCKY, EXPERIENCING EVERYTHING FROM FLOODING TO HAIL.   AND WITH MORE CROP CONDITIONS RATINGS RECENTLY BEING THE BEST IN YEARS, SOME FEAR THOSE NUMBERS HAVE ALREADY PEAKED AND WE SEE NUMBERS TICK BACK A FEW POINTS IN THE COMING WEEKS.

CLINTON CANADA:

CROPS HERE MAY LOOK GOOD, BUT OUR NEIGHBORS TO THE NORTH HAVE HAD A ROUGH GO.  BETWEEN A LONG WINTER, CLOGGED RAILROADS AND A SLOW START TO PLANTING, 2014 IS GIVING CANDADIAN FARMERS A BATTLE.
OUR OWN CLINTON GRIFFITHS IS ACTUALLY IN CANADA THIS WEEK FOR THE WORLD CONGRESS ON CONSERVATION AGRICULTURE.
HE HAS AN UPDATE. GOOD MORNING, CLINTON.

CROP WATCH:

 AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, SOME FARMERS HAVEN'T BEEN SO LUCKY THIS YEAR. MIKE HOFFMAN HAS DETAILS IN CROPWATCH. GOOD MORNING, MIKE.

MILK PRICE:

MILK PRICES ARE ON THE RISE. USDA JUST INCREASED ITS PROJECTED ALL MILK PRICE BY 20 TO 30 CENTS PER HUNDRED WEIGHT.  THE ALL MILK PRICE IS NOW AT 22.90 TO 23.30. BUT THE AGENCY DOES EXPECT PRICES BY AROUND 2 TO 3 DOLLARS NEXT YEAR. .

DICKRELL DAIRY TODAY:

CLINTON…MILK PRODUCTION NUMBERS HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING THIS YEAR.
 BUT THINGS MAY BE STARTING TO TURN AROUND.  USDA SAYS MILK PRODUCTION CLIMBED 1 POINT 4 PERCENT LAST MONTH.  THAT'S THE HIGHEST ONE MONTH INCREASE SO FAR THIS YEAR.  AND COMPARED TO LAST YEAR, THE PLAINS AND SOUTHWEST STATES ARE POSTING IMPRESSIVE GAINS. BREAKING IT DOWN, TEXAS TOOK THE CAKE-- WITH PRODUCTION UP MORE THAN 10 PERCENT LAST MONTH:
COLORADO PRODUCERS CHURNED OUT 9 POINT 5 PERCENT MORE.  WISCONSIN'S NUMBERS WERE FLAT, AND OHIO, PENNSYLVANIA, VERMONT AND NEW YORK ARE ALL SHOWING LOSSES.

 DAIRY SLAUGHTER:

THANKS, JIM.  MEANWHILE, USDA SHOWS DAIRY COW SLAUGHTER NUMBERS ARE DOWN FOR THE MONTH OF MAY. WITH 39,000 HEAD SLAUGHTERED LAST MONTH, THAT'S A 16 PERCENT DROP IN CULLING COMPARED TO A YEAR AGO. .
CATTLE ON FEED:

U-S DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE RELEASED ITS LATEST CATTLE ON FEED REPORT FRIDAY AND IT REALLY DIDN'T THROW OUT TOO MANY SURPRISES, WITH MAY INVENTORY STILL DOWN FROM A YEAR AGO.

TEASE:

STILL TO COME ON THIS TUESDAY, CROP CONDITIONS HAVE SOME FARMERS BRAGGING. BUT HIGHER YIELDS MEANS LOWER PRICES. SO, HOW SHOULD YOU PREPARE FOR THE SHIFT? AL PELL FINDS OUT IN ANALYSIS.

ANALYSIS INTRO:

IN AGRIBUSINESS, WITH CROP CONDITIONS STILL HOLDING STRONG, WHAT CAN YOU DO NOW TO PREPARE FOR WHAT'S TO COME. AL PELL FINDS OUT IN THIS MORNING'S ANALYSIS. AL.

TEASE:

THANKS SO MUCH, STILL TO COME, THERE'S AN ART THAT COMES TO MAKING CHEESE. BUT IT'S NOT CHEAP. WE'LL EXPLAIN IN FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY,

ITC TORNADO BABY:

TWISTERS CAN BE FORECAST, BUT THE DAMAGE IS ALWAYS UNKNOWN.
A RECENT SLEW OF TORNADOES DESTROYED TOWNS AND LEFT MANY

RESIDENTS HOMELESS:
BUT TRAGIC EVENTS CAN ALSO CREATE SILVER LINGINGS.  THE LATE MAY F-2 TORNADO THAT DESTROYED A MAN CAMP NEAR WATFORD CITY, NORTH DAKOTA IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THAT.  AS CLIFF NAYLOR SHOWS US, DOZENS OF ORDINARY PEOPLE ARE STEPPING FORWARD TO SUPPORT ONE TINY, YET VERY VULNERABLE VICTIM OF THAT DISASTER.

GREENHOUSE GASES:

IN FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY, SOME FINGERS POINT TO AGRICULTURE AS A MAJOR CULPRIT IN GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS. BUT PRESIDENT OBAMA'S RECENT PLAN TO LIMIT GREENHOUSE GASES FOCUSES ON POWER PLANTS AND FACTORIES. AND THAT NOW HAS THE BACKING OF THE SUPREME COURT.

ARTISAN CHEESE:

ALSO IN FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY, HUNDREDS OF CHEESES LINE STORE SHELVES TODAY.  AND TO BE HONEST, PICKING SOMETHING NEW TO TRY CAN BE A BIT OVERWHELMING. BUT AS PEOPLE'S TASTE BRANCH OUT, SO DOES THE NUMBER OF CHEESE ARTISANS AROUND THE COUNTRY TODAY.

RFD PROMO:

 TUESDAY ON AGDAY, THE LIST OF STATES WITH P-E-D JUST KEEPS GROWING. ARE CROP CONDITIONS CONTINUING TO SHOW RECORD RESULTS? AND A TORANDO VICTIM WHO LOST NEARLY EVERYTHING GAINED THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT OF ALL.  JOIN US TUESDAY ON R-F-D.

STATION PROMO:

WEDNESDAY ON AGDAY, PROBLEMS IN THE PORK PIT… OUR ANALYST BREAKS DOWN THE ISSUES PORK PRODUCERS ARE FACING. AND MOTHER NATURE DROPPED MORE RAIN ON ALREADY SOAKED AREAS THIS WEEK. BUT DOES THAT CONTINUE?  JOIN US RIGHT HERE EVERY WEEK DAY FOR AGDAY.
