GESTATION NEW JERSEY:
GOOD MORNING I'M BETSY JIBBEN, IN FOR CLINTON GRIFFITHS. WHILE MANY PEOPLE WERE ENJOYING THE LONG THANKSGIVING WEEKEND, NEW JERSEY GOVERNOR CHRIS CHRISTIE VETOED LEGISLATION THAT IS SURE TO UPSET ANIMAL ACTIVIST GROUPS. AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

TEASE:
STILL TO COME, A YAMAHA VIKING SIDE-BY-SIDE IS UP FOR GRABS; FIND OUT HOW THE MACHINERY CAN BE YOURS. PLUS IN AGRIBUSINESS SEE HOW THE CORN MARKET IS REACTING TO THE SLOW FINISH IN SOME NORTHERN STATES.
ANALYSIS INTRO:
FOR SOME FARMERS IN THE UPPER MIDWEST, IT'S BEEN A SLOW CRAWL TO THE FINISH LINE THIS HARVEST SEASON. THOUSANDS OF ACRES IN MICHIGAN, FOR EXAMPLE, ARE STILL IN SNOW OR MUDDY FIELDS. BUT GENERALLY SPEAKING, CORN HARVEST HAS WRAPPED-UP. HERE'S AL PELL WITH THIS MORNING'S ANALYSIS.
ANALYSIS SHISSLER:
ANDY SHISSLER ROACH AG MARKETING IS OUR GUEST HERE AT THE AGDAY AGRIBUSINESS DESK ANDY LET'S TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT UNITED STATES CORN HARVEST 94% REPORTED COMPLETED AND I DON'T HAVE ALL MY CORN HARVESTED YET I'M IN ONE OF THE SIX PERCENT THAT ISN'T COMPLETED BUT IS IT GOING TO MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE IF THE REST OF IT IS HARVESTED NOW I'M TALKING ABOUT OUR TOTAL SITUATION.  I FEEL BAD FOR THE GUYS IN LIKE MINNESOTA WISCONSIN MICHIGAN NORTH DAKOTA CAUSE SOME OF IT'S GOING TO SIT OUT THERE TILL SPRING.  SOME OF IT'S GOING TO BE ICE IN THERE BECAUSE OF WATER CAUSE IT RAINED HARD YOU KNOW. YEA AND MAYBE THAT WILL HELP WITH MOISTURE POSSIBLY INTO THE SPRING ON THE KERNEL I DON'T KNOW.  SO WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT I THINK LOOKING AT CROP REPORTS COMING FORWARD MOST OF THE CROPS HARVESTED SO WE SHOULD HAVE PRETTY GOOD IDEA ON WHAT THE YIELDS GOING TO BE AND WHEN WE GOT INTO THE LAST HALF OF THE CROP A LOT OF THE YIELDS KIND OF TAPERED DOWN AND SO YOU SAW A LITTLE EVIDENCE IN THE LAST CROP REPORT AND SO SOMETIME BETWEEN DECEMBER AND JANUARY YOU COULD SEE YIELDS EDGE BACK A LITTLE BIT IN THE CROP REPORTS AND THAT'S GOING TO HELP KEEP THE MARKET IN CORN FIRM AGAINST THE BOTTOM YOU KNOW AS POTENTIALLY THE CARRYOUTS FINALLY GETTING SMALLER AND NOT BIGGER THE ONE THING I WAS REALLY SURPRISED BY CAUSE SEE WE DO A LOT OF CROP INSURANCE WITH THE ACRES. YES, AND SO WE COLLECT A LOT OF YIELDS AND MY COMPANY COLLECTS A LOT OF YIELDS AS WELL AND I JUST DIDN'T THINK THE BEAN YIELD WAS THAT BIG AND SO I GUESS I'M AT ODDS WITH THAT BUT I DIDN'T EXPECT THE YIELD TO GO UP ON THE LAST REPORT AND I CAN'T IMAGINE IT WOULD GO UP AGAIN I MEAN WE HAD A LOT OF POOR YIELDS ACROSS IOWA AND THEY DIDN'T HAVE THAT MANY POOR YIELDS IN CORN THEY WERE GENERALLY PRETTY GOOD WITH SOME MONSTER YIELDS BUT BEANS WE HAD A FEW PEOPLE HIT OUT OF THE PARK IN ILLINOIS BUT NOT THAT MANY SO I GUESS IT'S MAYBE IT'S THE SOUTHERN CROP WAS ALL THAT BUT I GUESS I DON'T EXPECT A LOT OF CHANGES IN THE YIELDS AND I KIND OF THINK THE CORN THAT NEEDS TO BE HARVESTED DOESN'T REALLY MATTER AT THIS POINT AS WERE FAR ENOUGH ALONG. SO WERE BASICALLY GOING TO BE PRETTY LEVEL AT THIS POINT IN TIME.  I THINK WE'LL BE REALLY LEVEL ON PRICE LIKE WAY TO LEVEL FOR MY TASTE. OKAY THANK YOU VERY MUCH ANDY SHISSLER BEEN OUT GUEST HERE AT AGDAY BACK WITH MORE IN A MOMENT…
WX:
WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY WITH METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN. MIKE, IT LOOKS LIKE THE WEATHER IS ABOUT TO CHANGE ALONG THE WEST COAST. IT'S SOME GREAT NEWS TOO. THEY NEED SEVERAL OF THESE STORMS, BUT YOU HAVE TO START SOMEWHERE. THIS IS A NICE SYSTEM COMING OUT WEST. WE ARE LOOKING AT A STORM SYSTEM. IT'S A POWERFUL ONE. IT'S GOING TO BRING ABOUT TWO TO THREE INCHES OF RAIN TO CENTRAL, NORTHERN AND EVEN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. WE WILL ALSO SEE SOME HEAVY SNOWS IN THE MOUNTAIN AREAS. WE HAVE A WEAKER SYSTEM IN THE TENNESSEE VALLEY, SPREADING SOME RAIN SHOWERS THERE. THERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF SNOW AND ICE IN THE OHIO RIVER VALLEY. LET'S PUT THE MAPS INTO MOTION. THESE TWO SYSTEMS WON'T CAUSE MAJOR PROBLEMS, BUT THE ONE IN THE EAST WILL HAVE SOME SNOW IN APPALACHIAN MOUNTAINS. IF YOU ARE TRAVELING THROUGH THOSE AREAS, IT IS GOING TO CAUSE SOME ISSUES. NONE OF THIS IS BRUTALLY COLD AIR LIKE WE'VE SEEN SO FAR, BUT IT IS BELOW NORMAL STILL IN MOST OF THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY. HERE'S SOME RAIN, BUT THAT'S SOME MOUNTAIN SNOW RIGHT THERE IN THE SIERRA NEVADA. THAT'S GOOD NEWS BUT WE NEED SEVERAL OF THESE STORMS, IF NOT A DOZEN OF THEM TO GET RID OF THE DROUGHT. THERE IS ANOTHER ONE BEHIND THIS. AGAIN, WE ARE HEADING INTO A PATTERN HERE. WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THIS THE PAST WEEK OR TWO. MY LONG-RANGE FORECASTS ARE GOING ABOVE NORMAL FOR MOST OF THE WEST, ESPECIALLY FOR CALIFORNIA AND NEVADA. IT IS LOOKING GOOD AT THIS POINT. HERE IS THE SYSTEM AS WE HEAD INTO TOMORROW MORNING. YOU CAN STILL SEE SOME SNOW IN NEW ENGLAND AND NEW YORK; OTHERWISE WE HAVE SOME RAIN SHOWERS ALONG THE COAST THERE. THIS SYSTEM STARTS TO LOSE SOME OF IT'S POTENCY BUT IT'S ALREADY DUMPED SOME RAIN AND SNOW AND WILL CONTINUE TO CAUSE RAIN IN PARTS OF CALIFORNIA AND OTHER PARTS OF THE WEST AS WELL. HIGH PRESSURE BY LATE IN THE DAY TOMORROW, WILL DOMINATE THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY. THERE'S THE PRECIPITATION ESTIMATES OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS. YOU CAN SEE SOME LIGHT AMOUNTS IN THE EAST. IN THE NEXT 36, YOU WILL ADD MORE IN THE APPALACHIAN MOUNTAINS FOR THE MOST PART AS WELL AS THE EASTERN TENNESSEE VALLEY. LOOK AT ALL THE MOISTURE OUT WEST FROM OUR COMPUTER MODEL SHOWING TWO TO THREE INCHES IN PARTS OF CALIFORNIA AND EVEN INTO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, WHERE YOU DON'T GET A WHOLE LOT OF RAIN. LET'S ADD ON THE SNOW. YOU CAN SEE A LITTLE BIT IN THE EAST. PUTTING DOWN INCHES AND INCHES OF SNOW, PROBABLY FEET OF SNOW IN PARTS OF THE SIERRA NEVADA…HIGH TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON, BUT STILL BELOW NORMAL WITH A LOT OF 20'S AND 30'S IN THE NORTHERN SECTIONS, BUT 70'S IN THE FAR SOUTHEAST...LOW TEMPERATURES GOING TO DROP OFF IN THE NORTHERN PLAINS WITH SOME SINGLE DIGITS THERE, BUT WE WILL ALSO SEE SOME HIGHS TOMORROW. YOU CAN SEE SOME 40'S AND 30'S IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY. THAT'S NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. THERE'S THE JET STREAM IN OVERALL. YOU CAN SEE THAT STORM SYSTEM COMING IN OUT WEST. WE ARE KIND OF ZONAL HERE. WE ARE NOT GOING TO GET REAL WARM, BUT WE'RE NOT GOING TO GET REAL COLD EITHER OVER THE NEXT WEEK TO 10 DAYS ACROSS A GOOD CHUNK OF THE COUNTRY. THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY. NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS. FIRST OF ALL, FOR ALAMOGORDO, NEW MEXICO, PARTLY SUNNY AND PLEASANT TODAY... THE HIGH TEMPERATURE IS 65. MARQUETTE, MICHIGAN IS CLOUDY AND COLD, MAYBE A BIT OF SNOW. THE HIGH IS 23. DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA IS MUCH COLDER, AS SHOWERS POSSIBLE. THE AFTERNOON HIGH IS JUST 45.

TEASE:
