TODAY ON AGDAY
DECEMBER 24, 2012

AG IMPORTANCE:

Good morning I’m Clinton Griffiths. As we prepare to celebrate Christmas and family makes the journey to our homes, no doubt many of those relatives will find their way back to their country roots.

TAX TIPS:

We've been featuring an ongoing series called Paul’s Tax Tips. With so much talk around the impact of the pending fiscal cliff, several changes will occur to tax rates. One thing that won't change is deferred payment contracts. Expert farm CPA Paul Neiffer explains how vital of a resource these tools can be.

CROP WATCH:

Mike Hoffman joins us this morning from the AgDay weather center for crop watch. Mike good morning.

WDN DIGESTER:

In our dairy today report, anaerobic digesters are quickly becoming standard equipment on many large dairy operations. It also means someone has to build and install these on farm generators. Wisconsin dairy news introduces us to a Wisconsin-based business that's building global reach and helping grow Wisconsin’s green energy.

ANALYSIS:

In agribusiness today, the ethanol industry has struggled this year following tighter supplies, high grain costs and afflatoxin concerns. Al Pell joins us this morning with a look what the biofuel industry is dealing with.

CHRISTMAS CONCERT:

A little holiday concert on the prairie has become so popular; it had to be moved to a larger venue. The free performance attracts standing room only crowds mostly because it gives patrons a break from all the stress of holiday shopping, decorating, and baking. Cliff Naylor with affiliate KFYR, shows how it offers a simple reminder of the reason for the season.

KIDS ON BOUNCERS:

In food and your family this morning, we're looking at the safety of our children, especially this holiday season. And more specifically the Bounce House. It's a toy that's more popular and accessible than ever. As Clark Powell of nationwide children's hospital reports, a recent study found injuries from these toys are on the rise.
