JANUARY 16, 2015

OPEN HEADLINES:
TODAY ON AGDAY THE RURAL ECONOMY CONTINUES TO SPUTTER....WHILE, THE PRESIDENT PRESSES FOR BETTER INTERNET....IN THE PROFARMER PROFIT BRIEFING...COMING OUT OF THOSE REPORTS BUT THIS TIME MAYBE NOT SO MUCH AND MEET A MAN ALL ABOUT TOWN...THE STORY BEHIND THIS SPECIAL RESIDENT OF ABBOTT TEXAS TODAY ON IN THE COUNTRY. AGDAY BROUGHT TO YOU BY CHEVY SILVERADO 2014 NORTH AMERICAN TRUCK OF THE YEAR.
MAINSTREET INDEX:
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. THE ECONOMIC OUTLOOK FOR MUCH OF RURAL AMERICA REMAINS "LUKEWARM" AT BEST...AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.
RURAL BROADBAND:
TO BOOST RURAL ECONOMIES, PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS BUSINESS OWNERS AND RESIDENTS NEED MORE ACCESS TO BETTER AND FASTER INTERNET SERVICE. OBAMA IS PROMOTING A PLAN TO EXPAND ACCESS TO BROADBAND COMMUNICATIONS SERVICES BY INCREASING COMPETITION. NATIONAL REPORTER BETSY JIBBEN TAKES A CLOSER LOOK.
PRECIP FORECAST:
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IS EXPECTING 'SOME' IMPROVEMENT IN THE DROUGHT PICTURE FOR THE SOUTHERN PLAINS BY SPRING. BUT IT SAYS THE HARD RED WINTER WHEAT CROP COULD STILL STRUGGLE.
WEST COAST WATER:
IT MAY BE A BETTER YEAR PRECIPITATION WISE FOR MUCH OF THE WESTERN UNITED STATES.THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE FIRST FORECAST FROM USDA'S NATIONAL WATER AND CLIMATE CENTER.
TEASE:
UP NEXT A ROUGH DAY IN THE MARKETS…WE'LL TAKE A CLOSER LOOK. AND IT’S OUR WEEKLY PROFARMER PROFIT BRIEFINIG...CHIP AND THE GANG ARE TAKING A CLOSER LOOK AT THE RECENT USDA REPORTS.
CME REPORT:
IN AGRIBUSINESS IT WAS A ROUGH DAY IN COMMODITY MARKETS.  BOTH GRAINS AND LIVESTOCK SEEING RED…TO FIND OUT WHAT TRADERS ARE THINKING...LETS HEAD TO THE FLOOR OF THE CME.
PROFIT BRIEFING:
WE STARTED THE WEEK WITH BIG ANTICIPATION AS USDA RELEASED A BUNCH OF GRAIN REPORTS. BUT WHAT IS USUALLY A FIRECRACKER IN THE MARKETS TURNED-OUT TO FIZZLE. WE TAKE A CLOSER LOOK IN THE PROFARMER PROFIT BRIEFING WITH CHIP FLORY AND BRIAN GRETE.
TEASE:
STRAIGHT AHEAD ON THIS FRIDAY EDITION OF AGDAY, IF YOU'RE PLANNING A TRIP TO THE HORSE RACES...DON'T EXPECT TO SEE ANY REGISTERED CLONES STANDING IN THE GATE. DETAILS NEXT…
CLONED HORSES:
THE FIGHT TO REGISTER CLONED HORSES MET A RESOUNDING WALL THIS WEEK.
AN APPEALS COURT RULING THAT THE AMERICAN QUARTER HORSE ASSICIATION CAN REFUSE TO REGISTE CLONED ANIMALS. THIS TRUMPS AN EARLIER DECISION BY A LOWER COURT THAT SAID AQHA MUST ADMIT THE CLONES. THE CASE STEMS FROM A 2013 LAWSUIT BROUGHT BY TWO TEXAS RANCHERS--CALLING THE AQHA'S CLOSED REGISTERY A MONOPOLY--SUING TO GET CLONED HORSES ALLOWED.
TEXAS TUBERCULOSIS:
ALSO IN TEXAS, THE STATE'S ANIMAL HEALTH COMMISSION SAYS IT'S CONFIRMED CATTLE TUBERCULOSIS IN TWO PANHANDLE DAIRIES. THE DAIRIES ARE LOCATED IN CASTRO COUNTY. CATTLE TUBERCULOSIS IS A CHRONIC RESPIRATORY DISEASE. HERDS HAVE BEEN PUT IN QUARANTINE AND WILL STAY UNTIL FURTHER TESTING IS COMPLETE. OTHER OPERATIONS WITH LINKS TO THE TWO FACILITIES WILL ALSO BE TESTED IN HOPES OF FINDING THE ORIGIN OR STOPPING THE SPREAD.
GAB TAG:
AND WE'D LOVE TO SHOWCASE YOUR BARN ON AGDAY AS WELL! SEND US A FEW PICTURES TO THE ADDRESS ON YOUR SCREEN. YOU CAN ALSO EMAIL THE PICS AND BARN INFO TO "GREAT AMERICAN BARNS AT AGDAY DOT COM".
