IOWA AVIAN UPDATE:
 MEANWHILE MORE THAN SIX MILLION CHICKENS - MOST OF THEM EGG-LAYING HENS - WILL BE EUTHANIZED IN IOWA BECAUSE THE FLOCKS TESTED POSITIVE FOR THE H5N2 STRAIN.
MINNESOTA NUMBERS:
MEANWHILE, MINNESOTA'S TURKEY INDUSTRY IS BATTLING THE DISEASE. BY THE NUMBERS, 55 MINNESOTA FARMS HAVE BEEN AFFECTED. MOST OF THEM ARE TURKEY OPERATIONS.
18 OF THE STATE'S 87 COUNTIES HAVE CONFIRMED CASES. SO FAR, JUST OVER THREE MILLION BIRDS HAVE BEEN CULLED…
TYSON ANTIBOTICS:
 ONE OF THE WORLD'S LARGEST POULTRY PRODUCERS HAS NOW SET A TIMELINE TO PHASE OUT THE USE OF HUMAN ANTIBIOTICS ON ITS U-S BROILER CHICKENS. TYSON ANNOUNCED ITS INTENTIONS LAST FALL BUT THERE WAS NO SPECIFIC DEADLINE. NOW THE MEAT PROCESSOR SAYS IT WILL COMPLETELY ELIMINATE ANTIBIOTICS - WHICH ARE IMPORTANT TO HUMAN HEALTH - BY THE END OF 2017. TYSON ALREADY REQUIRES VETERINARY PRESCRIPTIONS TO USE ON POULTRY.
I80 PLANTING ILLINOIS:
USDA'S CROP PROGRESS REPORT SHOWS AS OF SUNDAY, 31 PERCENT OF ILLINOIS HAS PLANTED CORN. THAT'S 6 POINTS BEHIND THE 5-YEAR AVERAGE.  NOW FOR MANY, ILLINOIS WAS CONSIDERED THE 'GARDEN SPOT' LAST YEAR-BUT HOW WILL THE STATE FARE OUT THIS YEAR? FOR THIS WEEK'S 1-80 PLANTING TOUR, WE HEAD TO NORTHEAST ILLINOIS TO SEE HOW FARMERS ARE STARTING OFF ANOTHER GROWING SEASON.

AS YOU HEAD-OUT TO PLANT YOUR CROPS THIS SPRING, HOW MUCH GRAIN ARE YOU STILL HOLDING ONTO FROM LAST FALL? WE'LL TALK ABOUT A MARKETING STRATEGY OF THAT OLD-CROP WHEN AGDAY CONTINUES.

 YOU'RE PROBABLY FOCUSED ON PLANTING RIGHT NOW. BUT WHAT ABOUT LAST YEARS CROP STILL SITTING IN YOUR BIN. WHEN COULD WE SEE SOME RALLIES? TYNE MORGAN HAS MORE IN THIS MORNING'S ANALYSIS.
PECAN FARMERS:
 PECAN FARMERS ARE ASKING CONGRESS FOR HELP IN AN EFFORT TO LIFT INDIA'S TARIFFS.
THE U-S PECAN GROWERS COUNCIL SAYS THE TARIFFS HAVE RESULTED IN FEW EXPORTS TO THAT GROWING NATION. THE COUNCIL SAYS TARIFFS ON PECANS ARE HIGHER THAN OTHER TREE NUTS, WHICH LIMITS THE PECAN EXPORT MARKET.
CLOSE:
 THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN.
