TODAY ON AGDAY
JANUARY 25, 2013

MISSISSIPPI RIVER UPDATE:

FRIGID TEMPS ACROSS THE MIDWEST COULD CREATE RIVER FLOW ISSUES ALONG THE MISSISSIPPI...AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

DROUGHT MONITOR:

AS CONCERNS OF THE DROUGHT WEIGHT ON THE MINDS OF THE RIVER INDUSTRY, THE LATEST DROUGHT MONITOR SHOWS A SLIGHT IMPROVEMENT. OKLAHOMA STATE LIVESTOCK MARKETING EXPERT DERRELL PEEL SAYS PRODUCERS ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME. USDA PEGS HAY STOCKS AT THEIR LOWEST POINT IN SOME 60 YEARS AND NEARLY HALF OF PASTURES ARE STILL IN POOR TO VERY POOR CONDITIONS. PUT TOGTHER, PEEL SAYS PRODUCERS ARE RAPIDLY APPROACHING DECISION TIME.

CROP WATCH:

RANGELAND IN THE SOUTHERN TIER STATES ARE HAVING PROBLEMS GREENING. MIKE HOFFMAN HAS DETAILS FROM THE AGDAY WEATHER-CENTER.

PROFIT BREIFING:

BITTER COLD TEMPERATURES COVERED A LARGE SWATH OF THE HARD RED WINTER WHEAT CROP. WITH THE LACK OF DECENT SNOW COVER, THE CROP IS AT RISK FOR DAMAGE.

OJAI PIXES:

IF YOU TRY TO COMBAT EACH FLU SEASON BY RAMPING UP ON YOUR VITAMIN C INTAKE, CITRUS MAY BE YOUR GO-TO FOOD. FOR A GROUP OF CALIFORNIA FARMERS, TANGERINES ARE THEIR FRUIT OF CHOICE ALL YEAR LONG. CALIFORNIA BOUNTIFUL'S TRACY SELLERS INTRODUCES US TO A GROUP OF 26 FARMING FAMILIES WHO HAVE GROWN THEIR PASSION AND PRODUCTION INTO ONE. AND THEY'RE EVEN CATCHING THE EYE AND TASTE OF A FAMOUS CHEF. THANKS, TRACY. THATCHER SAYS AFTER EXPERIENCING THE JOYS OF A PIXIE MASSAGE, SHE MAY START DEMANDING ONE AFTER HER LONG DAYS AT THE FARMERS' MARKET.

FOOD LABELS:

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET YOU TO NOT CONSUME THAT ENTIRE CUPCAKE? ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY, IT'S MAKING THOSE FOOD LABELS, EASIER TO READ AND UNDERSTAND.

HEAT RESISTANT CHOCOLATE:

AND JUST IN TIME FOR VALENTYNE'S DAY, HEAT RESISTANT CHOCOLATE. NEW RESEARCH SHOWS ADDING HARDFATS TO COCOA BUTTER CAN HELP WITH HEAT RESISTANCE IN HOT CLIMATES.
