GOVERNMENT OPENS:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. IT'S BACK TO WORK FOR 800-THOUSAND FEDERAL WORKERS FURLOUGHED OVER THE PAST TWO WEEKS. NOW ATTENTION TURNS TO OTHER IMPORTANT ISSUE INCLUDING SOME MAJOR POLICIES IMPACTING AGRICULTURE.

NASS REPORTS SCHEDULE:

WHILE GOVERNMENT RAMPS BACK UP, USDA SAYS IT'S CANCELING SEVERAL KEY OCTOBER REPORTS. NASS IS IN THE PROCESS OF RESTARTING ITS DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS TEAMS.

THE NEXT SCHEDULED RELEASE IS NOVEMBER 8TH. CROP PROGRESS REPORTS THAT WERE MISSED WILL NOT BE ISSUED. AND THE CATTLE ON FEED AND PEANUT PRICES REPORTS SET TO COME OUT TOday ARE OFFICIALLY POSTPONED.

OLMSTED DAM:

THE FINAL LEGISLATION INCLUDED RAISING THE SPENDING LIMIT ON A KEY INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT ON THE OHIO RIVER. PROPONENTS FOR THE OLMSTED LOCK AND DAM SAY FAILURE TO RAISE THE SET-LIMITS WOULD HAVE FURTHER DELAYED THE SEVERAL BILLION DOLLAR PROJECT.

MEANWHILE, CITY AND TOWN MAYORS WHO LIVE ALONG THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER SAY CONTAINER SHIPPING COULD BECOME AN ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY FOR THOSE COMMUNITIES.

DAIRY EXPORTS:

MEANWHILE THE U.S. DAIRY EXPORT COUNCIL 2013 DAIRY EXPORTS WILL TOTAL $6.5 BILLION DOLLARS, THAT'S UP MORE THAN 25 PERCENT FROM 2012. IF REALIZED IT WOULD MARK A FOURTH CONSECUTIVE RECORD YEAR FOR U.S. DAIRY EXPORTS.

PEEL CATTLE:

IN THE MEANTIME, ONE OF THE BIGGEST IMPORTERS OF BEEF TO THE U.S. ISN'T SHIPPING AS MANY CATTLE THIS YEAR.
