OPENING HEADLINES:
COTTON HARVEST IS TRYING TO WRAP UP DOWN SOUTH. PLUS, EAST COAST FARMERS COULD BE FACING THE SUPREME COURT.
IN AGRIBUSINESS...USDA PREPARES FOR ITS NEXT BIG GRAIN REPORT. WHAT DOES THE ENDING STOCKS LOOK LIKE? DO THEY GO UP ON CORN ONE HUNDRED MILLION OR SOYBEANS GO UP 50 MILLION. RESEARCHERS SAY SOME DAIRY FARMERS MIGHT WANT TO GIVE THEIR COWS ASPIRIN! AND KEEPING KIDS WITH FOOD ALLERGIES SAFE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.

CROP PROGRESS:
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. COTTON HARVEST IS IN THE HOMESTRETCH, BUT FOR SOME GROWERS ACROSS THE SOUTH, THEY'RE DEALING WITH CONSTANT RAIN.
THIS IS ONE OF THE ONLY STANDING FIELDS LEFT NEAR MACON, MISSISSIPI. JACK HUERKAMP , THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOGUE CHITTO GIN (BOGA THE GIN IN THAT AREA, SAYS THE REGION HAD A BIT OF A ROUGH START DUE TO RAIN.. BUT HEAT HELPED MOVE THE CROP ALONG.
HUERKAMP SAYS GROWERS ENDED UP WITH AN AVERAGE YEAR AND OVERALL, QUALITY LOOKS PRETTY GOOD.
IT WAS A LITTLE LATE, A LITTLE COOL, A LITTLE SLOW STARTING. WE DIDN'T THINK WE'D DO WELL BUT THE SUMMER WORKED OUT PRETTY GOOD AND THEN WE GOT TOO HOT. IT'S ALWAYS SOMETHING. 52 WE ENDED UP WITH AN EXCELLENT HARVEST SEASON. WE CAN'T BEAT THAT. 54 WE DIDN'T GET BUT ONE SMALL RAIN FROM THE TIME WE STARTED PICKING TIL WE FINISHED. THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT WITH COTTON. THE HIGHEST GRADE COTTON WILL COME FROM COTTON THAT HASN'T BEEN RAINED ON. 06>
HUERKKAMP SAYS BECAUSE OF THE HEAT, SOME GROWERS WERE DISCOUNTED FOR HIGH MIC READINGS. THAT MEASURES FIBER FINESS NAD MATURITY.
COTTON HARVEST IN MISSISSIPPI IS NEARLY COMPLETE. IT'S ABOUT SIX POINTS BEHIND NORMAL. TEXAS COTTON HARVEST IS JUST PAST THE HALF-WAY MARK .BELT-WIDE, FIBER PICKING REACHED 58-PERCENT, 7 POINTS BEHIND. 93-PERCENT OF THE NATION'S CORN IS NOW SHELLED.
STATISTICALLY, ILLINOIS AND MISSOURI ARE NOW COMPLETED. SOYBEAN HARVEST IS ALSO NEARLY WRAPPED-UP, AS YOU MIGHT EXPECT. ILLINOIS, MINNESOTA AND NORTH DAKOTA HAVE FINISHED.
WINTER WHEAT PLANTING HAS JUST ABOUT WRAPPED-UP AS WELL. IN THE CENTRAL PLAINS, KANSAS AND NEBRASKA IS ALL PLANTED. 80-PERCENT HAS EMERGED. CONDITION RATING SAW A TWO POINT IMPROVEMENT FROM LAST WEEK.
FROM BEAUTIFUL HARVEST WEATHER TO SEEING TOO MUCH RAIN TO START THE MONTH. MIKE HOFFMAN HAS DETAILS IN THIS MORNING'S CROP WATCH. MIKE.

CROP WATCH:
GOOD MORNING CLINTON. OTHER THAN A FEW COUNTIES SCATTERED ACROSS TEXAS, THERE'S NO SHORTAGE OF SOIL MOISTURE IN THE LONE-STAR STATE.
AND SOME AREAS CONTINUE TO GET POUNDED. WE RECEIVED PHOTOS FROM AVIEWER JUST OUTSIDE COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS. THEY RECEIVED 16 INCHES OF RAIN. THAT PASTURE IS PLANTED WITH OATS AND THEY'RE NOT SURE IT'LL RECOVER. USDA'S BRAD RIPPEY TELLS AGDAY, IT'S MORE THAN JUST EL NINO AT PLAY. "THERE'S A LOT OF OTHER INFLUENCES ON U.S. WEATHER PATTERNS OTHERE THAN EQUATORIAL PACIFIC. IT DOES GET TRICKY AS WE MOVE THROUGH THE SEASON, EVERYONE'S TALKING ABOUT EL NINO DELUGES AND SO FORTH, BUT YOU REALLY CAN'T PIN THE BLAME ON ANY INDIVIDUAL STORM SYSTEM CROSSING THE U.S. ON EL NINO. EL NINO SIMPLY CREATES AN ENVIRONMENT THAT IS MORE CONDUCIVE FOR WETNESS ACROSS THE SOUTHERN TIER OF THE UNITED STATES." AND HEAVY RAINS TOOK THEIR TOLL ON VIRGINIA'S COTTON CROP. "NASS" SAYS ABOUT THIRD IS FAIR TO POOR. BALE PRODUCTION WILL BE DOWN ABOUT 14-PERCENT IN VIRGINA THIS YEAR.
AND FROM AGWEB, WE HEARD FROM A FARMER IN ROBESON COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA. HE SAYS THESE ARE THE BEST BEANS WE HAVE EVER RAISED BUT THEY CANNOT GET IN THE FIELD TO GET THEM. THE SUN HASN'T SHINED IN OVER A WEEK. NOW TAKING A LOOK AT THE WEATHER MAP THIS MORING YOU CAN SEE THAT WET SYSTEM MOVING THROUGH THE EASTERN PART OF THE COUNTRY AND THOSE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEMS OUT WEST ARE GOING TO COME TOGETHER IN A BIG STORM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY I'LL TELL YOU ABOUT THAT COMING UP IN WEATHER.
EAST COAST FARMERS COULD FACE SUPREME COURT:
THE FARM BUREAU FEDERATION AND A COALITION OF AG AND BUILDER GROUPS ARE ASKING THE U.S. SUPREME COURT TO REVIEW A LOWER COURT RULING ON EPA'S CHESAPEAKE BAY RULES.
THE FARM BUREAU FIRST SUED BACK IN 2011, FOLLOWING THE AGENCY'S IMPLEMENTATION OF NUTRIENT RESTRICTIONS IN THE SIX STATES THAT MAKE UP THE CHESAPEAKE BAY WATERSHED.
THE GROUP SAYS IT LETS THE AGENCY MICROMANAGE LOCAL LAND USAGE UNDER THE GUISE OF IMPLEMENTING THE FEDERAL CLEAN WATER ACT.
IT SUED AND LOST IN A LOWER COURT DECISION.. NOW ITS TAKING THE CASE TO THE SUPREME COURT.
"WE'RE  LEARNING  TO COPE BECAUSE WE'VE HAD THE MANDATE FOR SO MANY YEARS. FARMERS ARE ACCUSTOMED TO WHAT WE HAVE TO ADHERE TO, WHAT WORRIES US IS THE NEW REGULATIONS THAT MAY COME OUT AND IF THEY BECOME MORE STRINGENT. WE'VE ALREADY SHOWN, THAT FARMERS WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO MEET THOSE REGULATIONS. WE HAVE SHOWN WE CAN MEET THEM AND WE HAVE BUT IF THE REGULATIONS KEEP GETTING STRINGENT, I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH MORE MARYLAND FARMERS CAN DO,"
IMPLEMENTATION OF THE BLUEPRINT IS EXPECTED TO COST ROUGHLY $28 BILLION TO $30 BILLION IN MARYLAND AND VIRGINIA ALONE, ACCORDING TO FARM BUREAU.
AVIAN FLU QUARANTINE LIFTED:
USDA SAYS ITS LIFTING QUARANTINES AT ALL 72 IOWA POULTRY FARMS WITH CONFIRMED CASES OF HI-PATH AVIAN FLU.
IT SAYS THE SITES HAVE BEEN CLEANED AND LEFT EMPTY FOR A 21 DAY FALLOW PERIOD. THERE WERE NEARLY 80 OPERATION AND MORE THAN 31 MILLION BIRDS AFFECTED WITH H5N2 IN IOWA .
USDA ALSO URGING BIO-SECURITY VIGILANCE AS THE FALL MIGRATION OF WATER FOWL CONTINUES.
EVEN AS TURKEY PRODUCERS RECOVER, THEY COULD FACE STIFF COMPETITION THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.
HOLIDAY HAMS EXPECTED TO BE CHEAP:
WITH DOMESTIC PORK SUPPLIES AND INVENTORIES AT OR NEAR RECORD HIGH, AMERICAN'S SET TO SEE CHEAP HAMS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.
WHOLESALE PRICES ARE NOW THE LOWEST FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR SINCE 2009. DECEMBER HOG CONTRACTS FELL BELOW 54 DOLLARS PER HUNDRED DURING TRADE MONDAY.
TEASE:
BUT UP NEXT, A PREVIEW OF TUESDAY'S ANTICIPATED USDA REPORTS. WE'VE GOT THE NUMBERS ANALYSTS ARE WATCHING AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR PRICES.
STICK AROUND FOR MARKETS AND AGRI-BUSINESS AFTER THE BREAK. WE'LL TALK MORE ABOUT HOLIDAY MEALS, IN TODAY'S AG FOR YOUR HEALTH SEGMENT. TODAY THE KEYS TO KEEPING KIDS WITH FOOD ALLERGIES SAFE THROUGH THE HOLIDAY RUSH.
CME:
IN AGRIBUSINESS LETS SEE HOW MARKETS STARTED THE WEEK. AS TRADERS ANTICIPATE TODAY'S USDA REPORTS.
FOR THAT WE HEAD TO THE FLOOR OF THE CME.
LIMIT DOWN MARKETS AGAIN IN THE CATTLE AND FEEDER CATTLE WITH HOGS TRADING SHARPLY LOWER. CATTLE AND FEEDER CATTLE REACTING TO THE LOWER PRICES PAID IN THE CASH MARKETS ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON. ANY FROM 4-6 DOLLARS LOWER WERE PAID WHICH WAS ANTICIPATED. STILL NOT A REASON TO BUY CATTLE AND FEEDER CATTLE.   SOME OF THE NEARBY MONTHS FOR SOYBEANS TRADING HIGHER. BUT THAT'S ABOUT IT. SOYBEAN MEAL ALSO SOME OF THE NEARBY MONTHS SHOWING STRENGTH AS WELL, BUT REALLY NOT TOO MUCH ELSE GOING ON TOO TERRIBLY POSITIVE AS WE GET READY FOR USDA REPORTS. TRADE EXPECTING A SLIGHT UPTICK IN PRODUCTION IN BOTH CORN AND SOYBEANS IN THE REPORTS. WHEAT ESTIMATES REMAIN BASICALLY UNCHANGED, AND THEN WE'RE LOOKING ON THE SUPPLY-AND-DEMAND ESTIMATES, THAT THE EXPORT DEMAND WILL BE CUT FOR SOYBEANS, I'M SORRY FOR CORN AND FOR WHEAT. LONGER TERM, CORN AND SOYBEANS SHOULD BOTH BE RATHER, BE CLOSE TO SEASONAL LOWS, GENERALLY WE'RE AT THE END OF HARVEST AND GENERALLY WE GET A RALLY AFTER THE END OF HARVEST GOING INTO THE 3END OF THE YEAR WHEN WE START SEEING MORE SELLING COMING IN. HOWEVER THE MARKET MAY NOT RALLY TOO MUCH. NOT ONLY DO WE HAVE PLENTY OF SUPPLIES ON HAND, SOUTH AMERICA REMAINS AN AGGRESSIVE SELLER OF CORN AND TO A LESSER EXTENT OF SOYBEANS. AND THE EUROPEANS AND RUSSIANS REMAIN AGGRESSIVE SELLERS OF WHEAT. THIS IS JACK SCOVILLE, I'M VICE PRESIDENT OF PRICE FUTURES GROUP HERE ON THE CME GROUP FLOOR WITH SOME COMMENTS FOR THE MARKET.
AGRIBUSINESS DESK:
HERE AT THE AGRIBUSINESS DESK THIS MORNING, DON ROOSE, U.S. COMMODITIES. DON, LET'S TALK ABOUT THIS REPORT, THE CROP REPORT THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO COME OUT FROM THE USDA LATER TODAY.
WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING FOR?> WELL, YOU KNOW I THINK THE DOMINANT THING THAT TRADES GOING TO FOCUS ON WHEN IT COMES OUT OF THE BOX, AT LEAST I AM, IS WHAT DOES THE ENDING STOCKS LOOK LIKE? DO THEY GO UP ON CORN ONE HUNDRED MILLION OR SOYBEANS GO UP 50 MILLION? SO I THINK WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT THE ENDING STOCKS RIGHT AWAY, THEN I THINK YOU WILL BACK UP AND LOOK AT HOW DID WE GET THERE? YOU WILL LOOK AT THE PRODUCTION AND THEN YOU WILL BACK UP AND LOOK AT WHAT THE YIELD IS AND THEN I THINK QUICKLY YOU ARE GOING TO LOOK AT THE DEMAND SIDE. DID YOU SEE THE EXPORTS SLIP ON CORN? WHICH IS WHAT WE KIND OF EXPECT, IS SOYBEAN EXPORTS STAY THE SAME. AND THEN I THINK RIGHT AFTER THAT, CLINTON, YOU'LL LOOK AT WHAT IS AND WHAT'S THE WORLD ENDING STOCKS LOOK LIKE SINCE WE ARE SUCH A COMPETITIVE ENVIRONMENT, SO I THINK THAT WILL BE KIND OF THE SEQUENCE THAT WE WILL LOOK AT.> YEAH, KIND OF THAT WATERFALL OF THINGS THAT YOU LOOK AND SEE OK WHAT DOES ALL OF THIS MEAN TOGETHER? WHAT EXPORTS? THE EXPORTS PICTURE HAS NOT BEEN VERY GOOD THIS YEAR, RIGHT?> WELL, YOU KNOW, THE EXPORT PACE IS DISMAL SO FAR ON CORN, CORN EXPORTS ARE DOWN, SALE IS DOWN 34 PERCENT, SOYBEANS DOWN 22 PERCENT, WHEAT DOWN 17 PERCENT, SO NOT ...IT'S A SLOW PERCENTAGE OVER OUR TOTAL OVERALL PRODUCTION, BUT IT'S THE EXCESS THAT WE HAVE TO MOVE OUT OF THE COUNTRY, OTHERWISE WE BACK UP SUPPLIES, SO I THINK THAT'S THE REAL ISSUE, BUT THE OTHER THING, CLINTON, AFTER THE REPORT IT'S REALLY KEY NO MATTER WHAT THE NUMBERS ARE, HOW DO WE REACT TO IT, BECAUSE HOW MUCH IS ALREADY DIALED IN? DO WE HAVE ENOUGH NEGATIVE NEWS TO PUT ANOTHER PRICE LEVEL TO THE DOWNSIDE GOING INTO THE EARLY PLANTING OF SOUTH AMERICA AND THE WEATHER PROBLEMS THAT COULD DEVELOP IN SOUTH AMERICA? I THINK THAT'S GOING TO BE THE OTHER SIDE, YOU GET A NEGATIVE REPORT, WHO IS GOING TO SELL IT? I DON'T THINK IT'S GOING TO BE THE PRODUCER, I'M NOT SURE THE PHONES WANT TO, SO YOU MAY STAY IN THIS TRADING RANGE, BUT WE WILL SEE.> SO YOU ARE KIND OF TAKING A BIG PICTURE LOOK AT THIS THING AND YOU THINK MAYBE WE NEED TO PREPARED BEFORE THIS REPORT COMES OUT?> YEAH, YOU KNOW ALWAYS KEY FOR A REPORT IS HOW YOU REACT TO A REPORT RATHER THAN WHAT THE REAL NEWS IS, SO IF YOU GET NEGATIVE NUMBERS AND YOU CAN'T PUSH TO THE DOWN SIDE AND YOU GET POSITIVE NEWS AND YOU CAN'T PUSH TO THE UPSIDE, THAT KIND OF GIVES YOU A REAL VALUE FOR THE PRICES WHERE WE ARE REALLY AT. > ALL RIGHT, DON THANKS FOR BEING HERE, GOOD ADVICE. WE WILL BE BACK WITH MORE AGDAY IN JUST A MINUTE.

NATIONAL WEATHER:
WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY WITH METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN. MIKE, YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT STORMS LATER THIS WEEK. WE COULD SEE SOME SEVERE WEATHER. IN FACT, THERE'S A GOOD CHANCE IN MISSISSIPPI AND MISSOURI VALLEY. WE COULD SEE SOME SEVERE WEATHER OUT OF THIS SYSTEM. BUT THAT WOULDN'T COME UNTIL TOMORROW UNTIL THOSE STORM SYSTEMS KIND OF COME TOGETHER OVER THE PLAINS STATES. RIGHT NOW, THEY'RE PUTTING DOWN SOME SNOWS, ESPECIALLY IN THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS AND LIGHT RAINS IN THE LOWER ELEVATIONS. IT'S WARM AND DRY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY AT THE MOMENT AND WET IN THE EASTERN PORTIONS OF THE COUNTRY. THAT'S EASTERN OHIO. THAT STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE SO THOSE FOLKS IN NEW ENGLAND WILL GET WET AS WE HEAD THROUGH TONIGHT AND INTO TOMORROW.
WE WILL WATCH THOSE SYSTEMS OUT WEST, MULTIPLE PIECES OF ENERGY COMING TOGETHER TO A STRONG STORM. WE'RE GOING TO COMBINE THOSE AREAS OF LOW PRESSURE AS WE HEAD THROUGH TOMORROW MORNING. THAT MEANS SOME BIG-TIME WINDS AND SNOW IN WESTERN NEBRASKA, PARTS OF NORTHEASTERN COLORADO. THAT COULD BE BLIZZARD CONDITIONS IN THAT.
THERE'S TALK IN THE PLAINS STATES FOR SEVERE WEATHER IN THE SOUTHEAST PART OF NEBRASKA AND BLIZZARD IN THE WESTERN PART. THAT'S A SLIGHT CHANCE. IT'S NOT LIKELY TO HAPPEN BUT AT THE SAME TIME IT WOULD HAVE TO HAPPEN IN THE MORNING TOMORROW. THAT'S NOT LIKELY. EVERYONE AHEAD OF THAT COLD FRONT HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE WEATHER TODAY FROM CENTRAL AND NORTHERN ILLINOIS ALL THE WAY TO LOUISIANA. THAT WILL BE A LINE OF STRONG THUNDERSTORMS. THAT'S NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION TO SEE A TORNADO OR TWO AS WELL. THE NEXT COLD FRONT COMING IN THE NORTHERN ROCKIES, SOME RAINS, MOUNTAIN SNOWS ONCE AGAIN OUT OF THAT SYSTEM.
THERE'S THE RAIN AMOUNTS WE'VE SEEN OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS. ADDING ON THE NEXT 36, YOU CAN SEE WE'LL ADD A FAIR AMOUNT AS WE HEAD TOWARD NEW ENGLAND. THOSE THUNDERSTORMS WILL BREAK OUT ACROSS THE CENTRAL PLAINS FROM EAST TEXAS TO IOWA AND MISSOURI, SOME AREAS IN THOSE HEAVIER THUNDERSTORMS OR MORE. IT WILL ALL COME IN ONE TIME. ALL THE SNOW WILL BE LIMITED IN THE WESTERN PORTION OF THE COUNTRY. YOU CAN SEE HOW THAT SPREADS IN THE PANHANDLE OF NEBRASKA AS WE HEAD INTO THE NEXT 36 HOURS. HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY, 70S DOWN ALONG THE GULF. 40S AND 50S YOU GET ON UP TO NORTHERN GREAT LAKES AND THERE'S THE COLD STUFF ONCE AGAIN OUT WEST. THAT'S THE PATTERN OVER THE LAST MONTH AND A HALF. WE WILL BE PRETTY CHILLY IN THE EASTERN OHIO VALLEY ONCE AGAIN. THAT'S 60S AS A LOW IN THE SOUTHERN PLAINS. THAT'S 30S OUT WEST. HIGH TEMPERATURES TOMORROW, 70S EVEN SOME 80S IN THE SOUTHERN PLAINS. THAT'S MUCH MUCH COLDER IN THAT NORTHWEST SIDE OF THE SYSTEM.
THAT'S THE TROUGH COMING EASTWARD. YOU CAN SEE HOW THAT BOWLING BALLS EAST. A QUICK SHOT OF COLD AIR BEHIND IT LATE THIS WEEK AND NEXT WEEK. AFTER THAT, WE GO BACK TO A RIDGE AND ENERGY COMING INTO THE WEST. THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY. NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECAST.

REGIONAL WEATHER:
 FOR SALEM, OREGON, TODAY VARIABLY CLOUDY AND COOL.
THE HIGH TEMPERATURE IS 55. TAKE A LOOK AT SIOUX CITY, IOWA. IT'S PARTLY SUNNY AND COMFORTABLE. THE HIGH IS 59. AND FINALLY IN ANNISTON, ALABAMA IS VARIABLY CLOUDY AND WARMER DURING THE AFTERNOON. THE HIGH IS UP TO 66 DEGREES.
TEASE:
UP NEXT WE'RE TALKING DAIRY MARKETS AND WHY ONE ANALYST EXPECTS PRICES TO TURN POSITIVE IN 2016.
AND LATER, HALLOWEEN IS PAST AND THE HOLIDAY RUSH IS UPON US. WE'LL TALK ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF KEEPING KIDS WITH ALLERGIES SAFE THIS SEASON IN TODAY'S AG FOR YOUR HEALTH.
DAIRY REPORT:
IN OUR DAIRY TODAY REPORT, DAIRY PRICES IN 2015 STAND IN STARK CONTRAST TO THE INCREDIBLE RALLY IN 2014.
AT THE ELITE PRODUCER'S BUSINESS CONFERENCE GLOBAL DAIRY STRATEGIST TIM HUNT WITH RABOBANK TOLD ATTENDEES HE EXPECTS MORE PRICE PRESSURE IN THE NEAR TERM.
HE SAYS FALLING PRICES IN EUROPE, NEW ZEALAND, AUSTRALIA AND CHINA WILL FORCE A SLOW DOWN IN PRODUCTION GROWTH WORLD WIDE.
HERE IN THE U.S.--HIGHER FAT PRICES HAVE HELPED PROP UP MARKETS BUT THAT COULD BE ENDING SOON.
WE THINK WE'RE GOING TO STRUGGLE TO HOLD THOSE PREMIUMS TO THE INTERNATIONAL MARKET.
WE'LL SEE DEMAND CHOKED OFF A BIT HERE WE'LL INCREASED IMPORTS OF FAT, FAT PREMIUMS COME
DOWN AND UNFORTUNATELY THAT MAY MEAN U.S. PRODUCER SEE LOWER MILK CHECKS THROUGH THE FIRST
QUARTER OF NEXT YEAR BEFORE THEY JOIN THAT INTERNATIONAL STORY OF IMPROVING PRICES. 34:10>
LAST WEEK THE GLOBAL DAIRY TRADE PRICE INDEX FELL NEARLY 7 AND A HALF PERCENT--AT AUCTION IN NEW ZEALAND.
SLOWING DEMAND FROM CHINA PART OF THE REASON BEHIND THE DOWNTURN.

ASPIRIN HELPING COWS TO EAT:
SHORTLY AFTER GIVING BIRTH, MANY DAIRY COWS WILL SUDDENLY STOP EATING, POTENTIALLY CAUSING SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS FOR THE MOTHER AND A DECLINE IN MILK PRODUCTION.
ONE KANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY RESEARCHER HAS FOUND THAT EXCESS INFLAMMATION FROM THE BIRTHING PROCESS ITSELF, MAY BE CONTRIBUTING TO THE COW'S LACK OF APPETITE.
HE'S TESTING ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS -SIMILAR TO IBUPROFEN OR ASPIRIN AS A MEANS OF CURTAILING INFLAMMATION'S DANGEROUS EFFECTS.
WHAT WE'D LIKE TO DO IS INTERRUPT THE DISEASE PROCESS, GET HER BACK ON THE RIGHT TRACK AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE, AND REALLY WE ARE ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT ROLE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS CAN PLAY IN MEETING THOSE GOALS.
BRADFORD SAYS UP TO 40 PERCENT OF DAIRY COWS HAVE EXPERIENCED A PERIOD OF NOT WANTING TO EAT. EARLY RESEARCH FINDS THAT GIVING ONE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PILL THE DAY AFTER GIVING BIRTH CAN INCREASE MILK PRODUCTION OF UP TO 7 TO 10 PERCENT.
TEASE:
THE HOLIDAYS ARE FULL OF PARTIES...AND THAT MEANS PLENTY OF FOOD. BUT HOW DO PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN WHO STRUGGLE WITH FOOD ALLERGIES?
THAT'S NEXT ON AGDAY.
THIS IS MACHINERY PETE INVITING YOU TO CHECK OUT MY NEW WEBSITE MACHINERYPETE.
COM -OFFERING FARMERS TENS OF THOUSANDS OF USED EQUIPMENT LISTINGS TO SEARCH. LET MACHINERY PETE HELP YOU FIND AND VALUE YOUR NEXT PIECE OF USED EQUIPMENT.
KEEPING KIDS WITH ALLERGIES SAFE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON:
NOW THAT HALLOWEEN HAS PASSED, IT'S TIME TO GEAR-UP FOR THE BIG HOLIDAY SEASON THAT TYPICALLY INVOLVES A LOT OF FOOD. IT CAN BE ESPECIALLY TOUGH FOR CHILDREN WITH FOOD ALLERGIES.
CLARK POWELL HAS TIPS ON CELEBRATING, WHILE KEEPING THE KIDS SAFE. BEFORE 11 YEAR OLD ZACHG CHURCHILL GOES TO A CLASS PARTY HE HAS TO PLAN AND PACK HIS OWN SNACKS. ZACH HAS SEVERE ALLERGIES AND WITH THE WRONG FOOD EVEN A SMALL BITE CAN CAUSE BIG PROBLEMS. ACTUALLY JUST YESTERDAY I HAD AN ISSUE WITH THAT I BIT INTO AN EGG ROLL EVEN THOUGH I'M TECHINCALLY OK WITH EGGS, I JUST NEVER KNOW AND I HAD A LITTLE ISSUE AND ALL THAT.
ZACH’S NOT ALONE. NEARLY SIX MILLION CHILDREN HAVE FOOD ALLERIGES IN THE US AND AVERAGE ABOUT TWO PER CLASSROOM. IT IS A PARTICULARLY STRESSFUL TIME
FOR OUR PATIENTS WITH FOOD ALLERGIES. YOU KNOW WE STRESS BEING PREPARED AND HAVING A PLAN IN PLACE FOR HOW TO DEAL WITH THOSE SURPRISES.
DOCTOR BJ LANSER AN AN ALLERGIEST AT NATIONAL JEWISH HEALTH IN DENVER WHO HAS FOUR SIMPLE TIPS TO AVOID HOLIDAY HAZARDS.
FIRST AND FOREMOST, DON'T GO ANYWHERE WITHOUT EPINEPHRINE AND NEVER EAT ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT 100% SURE IS SAFE. IT'S THE ONLY LIFESAVING MEDICINES WE HAVE FOR ANAPHYLAXIS AND SO ANY TIME WE COULD COME IN CONTACT WITH SOMETHING WE'RE ALLERGIC TO WE NEED TO HAVE THE EPI AVAILABLE. IF YOU'RE INVITED TO A PARTY RSVP ASAP MAKE SURE YOU TALK TO THE HOST EARLY ON ABOUT SAFE FOOD YOUR CHILD, OR IS POSSIBLE VOLUNTEER TO HOST THE PARTY YOURSELF AND HAVE OTHERS BRING NON FOOD ITEMS. ASKING GUESTS TO BRING PAPER GOODS OR GAMES OR CRAFT PROJECTS INSTEAD OF BRINGING THE FOOD SO THAT YOU CAN CONTROL WHAT THE CHILDREN WITH FOOD ALLERIGES MIGHT EAT.
FINALLY WHETHER YOU'RE HOSTING OR ATTENDING A PARTY MAKE SURE FOOD LABELS ARE AVAILABLE. WHILE MOST OF US LIKE TO MAKE AN IMPRESSION WITH OUR DISHES, KEEPING THE ORIGINAL PACKAGING CAN PROVIDE PARENTS VALUABLE INFORMATION AND SOME PEACE OF MIND., OUR PATIENTS AND HEIR PARENTS BECOME VERY GOOD AT READING LABELS AND LOOKING FOR HOSE DETAILS. KEEPING IS IN THE ORIGINAL PACKING AND KEEPING THE ORGINAL LABEL IS A GOOD IDEA THAT THAT THEY CAN REVIEW IT. AT NATIONAL JEWISH HEALTH IN DENVER, T HIS IS CLARK POWELL REPORTING.
FOR PARTIES WITH LOTS OF PEOPLE, IT'S A GOOD IDEA FOR ADULTS TO TAKE SHIFTS WATCHING YOUNG CHILDREN WITH ALLERGIES -JUST TO MAKE SURE THEY'RE NOT EATING SOMETHING THEY SHOULDN'T.
TOMORROW IS VETERAN'S DAY, AND WE'LL HAVE A TRIBUTE TO AMERICA'S MILITARY VETERANS RIGHT HERE ON AGDAY. YOU'LL MEET A FARMER WHO SURVIVED SERIOUS INJURIES IN AFGHANISTAN BUT IS NOW FARMING THANKS TO SUPPORT FROM THE 'EXTENSION' OFFICE.
CLOSING:
THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN. FOR MIKE HOFFMAN, AND ALL OF US AT AGDAY, I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. HAVE A GREAT DAY.
PROMO:
I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS, WEDNESDAY ON AGDAY -WE PULLING OFF THE I-80 HARVEST TOUR FOR ONE FINAL STOP. AND WE'LL LOOK AT MARKETING DECISIONS MADE BY THESE FARMERS ACROSS THE CORN BELT.
AND CELEBRATING VETERANS TURNED FARMERS. WATCH US WEEKDAYS ON AGDAY.
