TODAY ON AGDAY
APRIL 20, 2015

OPEN HEADLINES:
TODAY ON AGDAY - CONTINUING TO EVALUATE THE AVIAN FLU OUTBREAK...INCLUDING NEW REPORTED CASES. IN AGRIBUSINESS...WHAT DRIVING CROP MARKETS NOW. THE STRONG DOLLAR IS MAKING OUR PRODUCTS TRYING TO COMPETE AROUND THE WORLD EVERY WEEK THAT THE DOLLAR STAYS STRONG WE HAVE TO COMPETE MORE WITH ANOTHER COUNTRY. MACHINERY PETE SAYS THE USED 4-WHEEL DRIVE TRACTOR MARKET IS HANGING TOUGH, AND CONQUORING THE FEAR OF SPEAKING IN PUBLIC. THESE TENNESSEE 4-HERS ARE STANDING UP IN HOPES OF A SUCCESSFUL FUTURE. AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE, LONG LASTING CHEVY SILVERADO…
AVIAN EXPORTS:
 GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. AS A NEW WEEK BEGINS, TRADE GROUPS ARE HOPEFUL THAT MEXICO WILL FURTHER EASE RESTRICTIONS ON IMPORTS OF U-S TURKEY PRODUCTS...AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.
PED UPDATE:
IN THE NATION'S PORK HERD, LOSSES FROM P-E-D HAVE FALLEN DRAMATICALLY IN THE LAST YEAR. LEADERS AT THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF SWINE VETERINARIANS SAY THE REASON IS IMMUNE STATUS OF SWINE HERDS AND IMPROVED BIOSECURITY ON FARMS.
DOCTOR TOM BURKGREN SAYS WHILE THERE IS STILL SOME CIRCULATION OF THE VIRUS, NOT NEARLY AS MANY U.S. FARMS ARE BING AFFECTED. OVER THE LAST WEEK THERE WERE JUST OVER 100 NEW CASES REPORTED...ABOUT HALF WHAT IT WAS A YEAR AGO. HE SAYS THE ONE SILVER LINING MAY BE THE IMPROVEMENT IN COMMUNICATION BETWEEN FARMERS AND ANIMAL HEALTH FOLKS.
TEASE:
STRAGHT AHEAD A LOOK AT MARKET MOVERS. FARM DIRECTOR AL PELL ASKS WHO OR WHAT IS IN THE DRIVERS SEAT AS PLANTING STARTS IN EARNEST.
ANALYSIS INTRO:
AS MARKETS BEGIN TO LOOK AT PLANTING AND BEYOND, MANY UNKNOWNS REMAINS.
IN THIS MORNING'S ANALYSIS, FARM DIRECTOR AL PELL CONSIDERS MARKET MOVEMENT AND WHICH DRIVERS TO WATCH.
KUBOTA:

MACH PETE:
THE LATEST FLASH REPORT FROM THE ASSOCIATION OF EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURERS SHOWS THAT SALES ON FOUR WHEEL DRIVE TRACTOR HAVE DROPPED SIGNIFICANTLY…MUCH OF THAT IS DUE TO LOW CROP PRICES.  BUT IT APPEARS FARMERS ARE STILL WILLING TO BUY USED MACHINERY.
MACHINERY PETE SAYS IT WAS A GOOD WEEK FOR OLD FOUR WHEEL DRIVE TRACTOR.
CLOSE:
THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN.
