TODAY ON AGDAY
MAY 27, 2015

OPEN HEADLINES:
TODAY ON AGDAY  SEVERE STORMS AND WET WEATHER WREAKING HAVOC ON CROPS IN THE GROUND.PLUS, CALIFORNIA FARMERS MAKE A DEAL OVER WATER USE...BUT IS IT FAIR? A LEGALIZED FORM OF EXTORTION IN AGRIBUSINESS...PLANTING PROBLEMS WITH CANADA'S CANOLA CROP IS HAVING AN IMPACT ON SOYBEAN MARKETS IN THE U-S. ALTHOUGH CANOLA PRODUCTION MIGHT BE TAILING OFF A BIT SOYBEAN PRODUCTION IS REALLY RAMPING UP HERE IN THE UNITED STATES PLUS SEE HOW THE GROWING NUMBER OF FARM WOMEN IS BEING DOCUMENTED THRU THE LENS OF A THIS PHOTOGRAPHER'S CAMERA. AGDAY BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE, LONG LASTING CHEVY SILVERADO.
RAIN AND FLOODING:
 GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. RECOVERY EFFORTS ARE UNDERWAY THROUGH A WIDE PATH OF THE GREAT PLAINS AFTER HEAVY RAINS AND POWERFUL STORMS PUMMEL THE REGION...AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.
CALI WATER PLAN:
THE CALIFORNIA STATE WATER RESOURCES CONTROL BOARD ACCEPTED A PROPOSAL FROM A GROUP OF FARMERS TO VOLUNTARILY CUT BACK ON WATER USE.
AL GATHERING:
 THE LATEST TALLY SHOWS NEARLY 41 MILLION BIRDS HAVE BEEN IMPACTED BY AVIAN INFLUENZA. AS NUMBERS CLIMB AG AND STATE LEADERS ARE MEETING TO DISCUSS THE FUTURE.
AL IMPACT:
ANALYSTS AT FINANACIAL FIRM GOLDMAN SACHS SAY CONSUMERS ARE ULTIMATELY GOING TO PICK UP THE TAB. THEY'RE PROJECTING AMERICANS WILL SPEND UP TO 8 BILLION DOLLARS MORE TO BUY EGGS IN THE COMING MONTHS. THAT WOULD BE AN INCREASE OF 75 PERCENT OVER LAST YEAR. GOLDMAN SAYS PACKAGED FOODS COULD SEE INGREDIENTS IN SHORT SUPPLY AND RESTAURANTS LIKE MCDONALD'S AND IT'S POPULAR BREAKFAST ITEMS MAY FEEL THE PRICING PINCH. PRICES FOR WHOLESALE BREAKER EGGS REACHED $1.23 A DOZEN LAST WEEK, THE HIGHEST EVER.
TEASE:
WHEN WE COME BACK, WE'LL DIG INTO THE CANOLA MARKET AND WHAT IT'S RECENT BOUNCE MEANS FOR THE OIL SEED MARKET.
ANALYSIS INTRO:
CANOLA PRICES ARE CLIMBING DUE TO PLANTING STRUGGLES IN CANADA. SO WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR PRICES AND OIL SEEDS IN GENERAL? TYNE MORGAN IS AT THE AGRIBUSINESS DESK WITH MORE IN TODAY'S ANALYSIS.
TACO HUT FOOD:
FAST FOOD GIANTS TACO BELL AND PIZZA HUT BOTH SAYING THEY'RE CLEANING UP RECIPIES.THE COMPANIES ANNOUNCING PLANS TO DROP ALL ARTIFICIAL COLORS AND FLAVORS…FOR INSTANCE TACO BELL SAYS INSTEAD OF BLACK PEPPER FLAVOR IT WILL START USING ACTUAL BLACK PEPPER. PART OF THE REASON FOR THE SHIFT IS COMPETITION. IN RECENT MONTHS, RESTAURANTS LIKE MCDONALD'S AND SUBWAY HAVE MADE SIMILAR ANNOUNCEMENTS. THE BRANDS ARE OWNED BY YUM BRANDS BASED IN LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY.
FOOD NAMES:
USING THE NAMES PARMASAN OR CHAMPAGNE MAY FACE NEW HURDLES IN THE FUTURE.
ITC FARM HER STORY:
 WHILE WOMEN HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A PART OF AGRICULTURE, IT WASN'T UNTIL 2002 THAT THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE FINALLY STARTED COUNTING THEM IN THE AG CENSUS. AND NOW WE KNOW THAT 30-PERCENT OF ALL FARM OPERATORS ARE WOMEN. AN IOWA PHOTOGRAPHER IS WORKING TO DOCUMENT THE CHANGE IN AGRICULTURE.
SARAH TEE-SLAA FROM AFFILIATE K-T-I-V SHOWS US THE FARM-HER STORY.
CLOSE:
SARAH SAYS MARJI SHARES HER MESSAGE THROUGH PRESENTATIONS AND PHOTO EXHIBITS. RECENTLY, SHE WAS A FEATURED SPEAKER DURING A LIVE ONLINE CHAT HOSTED BY THE USDA FOR NATIONAL AG DAY. SHE SHOWED HER PHOTOS IN A PUBLIC EXHIBIT IN WASHINGTON, D.C. THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN.
