TODAY ON AGDAY
JANUARY 30, 2015

OPEN HEADLINES:
COMING UP TODAY ON AGDAY - MORE FARM BILL SAFETY NET DEADLINES ARE LOOMING. HOW IS A LABOR DISPUTE AT WEST COAST DOCKS IMPACTING MEAT EXPORTS?
IN THE PROFARMER PROFITS BRIEFIING...A PREVIEW OF USDA'S CATTLE INVENTORY REPORT DUE OUT TODAY. WHAT WE WANT TO KNOW IS HOW MUCH BEEF REPLACEMENT HEIFERS ARE YOU KNOW HOW MANY HEIFERS ARE BEING HELD BACK. A GREAT AMERICAN BARN FROM AMISH COUNTRY IN INDIANA AND TEACHING KIDS THE VALUE OF HEALTHY FOODS.AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY CHEVY SILVERADO 2014 NORTH AMERICAN TRUCK OF THE YEAR.
CBO FARM BILL:
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. WITH DEADLINES LOOMING, AMERICA'S FARMERS STILL HAVE PLENTY OF WORK TO FINISH IN ORDER TO GET SIGNED UP THE FARM BILL'S SAFETY NET PROGRAMS...AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.
EPA SUED:
MEANWHILE THE E-P-A IS NOW UNDERFIRE FOR WHAT IT HASN'T DONE TO REGULATE FARMS AND RANCHES. A NEW LAWSUIT BROUGHT BY SIX ENVIROMENTAL ADVOCACY GROUPS SAYS EPA HAS FAILED TO SET LIMITS ON AMMONIA OUTPUT AND OTHER POLLUTANTS FROM LARGE SCALE LIVESTOCK FACILITIES. THE GROUPS SAY EPA HASN'T ACTED ON A 2011 PETITION TO CLASSIFY AMMOINA GAS POLLUTION A HARZARD TO PUBLIC HEALTH...NOR HAS IT SET ALLOWABLE LIMITS. THE LAWSUIT WAS FILED IN A WASHINGTON FEDERAL COURT. EPA SAYS ITS REVIEWING THE SUIT. THE NATIONAL PORK PRODUCERS COUNCIL SAYS AN AIR POLLUTION STUDY IS UNDERWAY AND ANY DECISION SHOULD BE MADE WITH ACTUAL DATA.
CROP WATCH:
A BIG PORTION OF THE CORNBELT IS SHORT ON SOIL MOISTURE RIGHT NOW. MIKE HOFFMAN HAS THE DETAILS IN CROPWATCH. GOOD MORNING MIKE,
KEYSTONE:
A PIPELINE FROM CANADA TO THE GULF OF MEXICO MAY BE ONE STEP CLOSER TO REALITY.
ON THURSDAY THE SENATE VOTED TO PASS THE KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE LEGISLATION...FINALLY GETTING THE 60 YAY'S IT NEEDED TO SEND THE BILL TO THE FLOOR FOR A FULL VOTE. THE LEGISLATION NOW NEEDS FINAL APPROVAL FROM THE HOUSE AND THEN ITS ON TO THE PRESIDENT'S DESK..WHERE IT MAY OR MAY NOT BE VETO'D.
EVEN IF THE PRESIDENT APPROVES, SECURING A PATH THROUGH NEBRASKA CONTINUES TO PROVE A CHALLENGE AS LANDOWNERS THERE RECENTLY FILED SUIT TO STOP EMINANT DOMAIN.
TEASE:
I WOULD SAY MOST KIDS LOOK FORWARD TO FRIDAYS. AFTERALL IT'S THE END OF THE SCHOOL WEEK. JUST AHEAD SEE HOW YOUNGSTERS AT ONE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CELEBRATE THE DAY. . . IN THE CAFETERIA,  BUT FIRST, WE'LL VISIT ANOTHER GREAT AMERICAN BARN.
TEASE:
STILL TO COME - GETTING YOUNGSTERS EXCITED ABOUT VEGETABLES!
CLOSE:
THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN.
