November 16, 2015
OPEN HEADLINES:
OIL PRICES BOTTOM OUT TO END THE WEEK. PLUS NEW RULES TAKE EFFECT FOR FOOD IMPORTERS. IN AGRIBUSINESS....SORTING THROUGH THE CATTLE MARKET VOLATILITY.
THAT VOLATILITY IS DRYING UP SOME OF THE LIQUIDITY IN THIS MARKET. FARM INCOMES ARE DOWN, BUT INTEREST IS STILL HIGH ON CERTAIN USED EQUIPMENT. MACHINERY PETE HAS DETAILS STRAIGHT AHEAD. AND WHEN YOU HEAD TO THE DAIRY BARN, DON'T FORGET YOUR SMART PHONE. WE'LL SHOW YOU AN APP THAT'S HELPING DAIRYMEN AROUND THE GLOBE.
WEAK OIL PRICES IMPACT RURAL ECONOMIES:
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS.
WILL OIL PRICES FIND NEW STRENGTH THIS WEEK FOLLOWING LAST FRIDAY'S SELL OFF?  OIL FUTURES TRADING FRIDAY A FRESH LOWS---BELOW 41 DOLLAR PER BARREL RANGE. THE MORE THAN 2 PERCENT DROP--EXTENDING THE WEEK'S LOSS TO THE LARGEST IN 8 MONTHS.
BRENT CRUDE SETTING FRESH 6 AND A HALF YEAR LOWS....ON SWELLING STORAGE NUMBERS BOTH ON LAND AND AT SEA.
THE MOVE ALSO WEIGHING ON OIL PRODUCTS. U.S. GASOLINE PRICES DROPPING TO 10 MONTH LOWS.
CRUDE OVERSUPPLIES HAS PUSHED PRICES NEARLY TWO THIRDS LOWER SINCE  JUNE OF 2014. THAT COMBINED WITH THE POTENTIAL OF A MILD 2016 WINTER COULD MAKE OVERSUPPLIES EVEN HIGHER. WHILE LOWER OIL PRICES ARE GENERALLY GOOD NEWS FOR HEAVY USERS OF
MACHINERY, IT CAN WEIGH ON RURAL ECONOMIES. EVEN COTTON GROWERS FEEL INCREASED PRESSURE FROM OIL BASED FABRICS.
CRUDE OIL PRICES ARE HOLDING COTTON PRICES DOWN, ABSOLUTELY. YOU KNOW IT'S A WONDERFUL THING. I CAN DO ALL MY HAULING AND MY EQUIPMENT RUNS SO MUCH CHEAPER. BUT THEN ON THE OTHER SIDE OF IT, IT'S HURTING US. WE NEED MIDDLE GROUND ON CRUDE OIL PRICES. 07 >
COTTON PRICES ALSO FALLING FRIDAY, EVEN AFTER USDA CUT EXPECTED PRODUCTION BY NEARLY 20 PERCENT IN 2015.
EUROPEAN FOOD SAFETY REGULATORS SAY GLYPHOSATE IS UNLIKELY TO BE LINKED TO CANCER:
IN WHAT'S LIKELY TO SET-OFF A BARRAGE OF VERBAL JOUISTING, EUROPEAN FOOD SAFETY REGULATORS HAVE ONCE AGAIN DETERMINED THAT GLYPHOSATE IS UNLIKELY TO BE CAUSE OF CANCER TO HUMANS.
THE E-F-S-A AND EUROPEAN MEMBER STATES RE-ASSESSED THE WIDELY USED HERBICIDE. THE SECOND STUDY WAS CONDUCTED AFTER THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATIONS' INTERNATIONAL AGENCY FOR RESEARCH ON CANCER CLASSIFIED GLYPHOSATE AS "PROBABLY" CARCINOGENIC.
DONNA FARMER FROM MONSANTO TOLD US EARLIER THIS SUMMER THAT EUROPEAN REGULATORS HAD SUPPORTED MONSANTO'S CLAIM THAT THE PRODUCT IS SAFE IF PROPERLY USED.
I WANT TO BE PERFECTLY CLEAR, ALL OF OUR LABELS FOR GLYPHOSATE ARE SAFE FOR HUMANS, AND THAT WE HAVE A LONG HISTORY OF SAFE USE. GLYLPHOSATE HAS ONE OF THE MOST EXTENSIVE HUMAN HEALTH DATABASES EVER COMPLIED FOR AN AG PRODUCT AND I THINK THAT YOUR LISTENERS AND CONSUMERS SHOULD BE CONFIDENT IN THE SAFETY OF THAT PRODUCT.>
WHILE THE REPORT CONCLUDES THAT GLYPHOSATE IS UNLIKELY TO POSE A CARCINOGENIC HAZARD TO HUMANS, THE EUROPEAN AGENCY DID PROPOSE A NEW SAFETY MEASURE TO TIGHTEN THE CONTROL OF GLYPHOSATE RESIDUES IN FOOD.
THE PEER REVIEW GROUP SET AN ALLOWABLE ACCEPTANCE LEVEL OF A HALF MILLIGRAM PER KILOGRAM OF BODY WEIGHT.
FDA POSES NEW RULES  FOODS IMPORTED TO THE U.S.:
THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION RELEASING NEW RULES THAT PUT MORE "BITE" INTO IMPORTED FOODS.
THE NEW RULES ARE PART OF THE LARGER "FOOD SAFETY MODERNIZATION ACT".
IN THIS CASE THE F-D-A SET STANDARDS THAT REQUIRE FOREIGN PRODUCE FARMS AND IMPORTERS TO VERIFY THEIR PRODUCTS MEET U-S FOOD SAFETY STANDARDS.
THE RULE REQUIRES A THIRD PARTY AUDITOR TO CONDUCT ON-SITE INSPECTION OF THE FACILITIES OVERSEAS.
 THE RULE SETS SCIENCE-BASED STANDARDS FOR GROWING, HARVESTING, PACKING AND STORING PRODUCE THAT ARE INTENDED TO BE SHIPPED TO THE U.S.
TPP:
THE ADMINISTRATION CONTINUES TO TOUT THE BENEFITS OF THE TRANSPACIFIC PARTNERSHIP.
PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS THE 12-NATION AGREEMENT WOULD BE A WIN FOR AMERICAN WORKERS, BUSINESSES, AND THE MIDDLE CLASS.
HE SAYS THE COMMITMENTS IN THE AGREEMENT ARE ENFORCEABLE, SAYINGTHAT AMERICA CAN HOLD OTHER COUNTRIES ACCOUNTABLE THROUGH TRADE SANCTIONS.
AND WHILE SOME LABOR GROUPS OPPOSE THE DEAL, THE PRESIDENT CONTENDS EXPORTS SUPPORT 11.7 MILLION JOBS, AND COMPANIES THAT SELL THEIR GOODS AROUND THE WORLD TEND TO GROW FASTER, HIRE MORE EMPLOYEES, AND PAY HIGHER SALARIES THAN THOSE THAT DON'T.
NONE OF US ARE SCARED OF COMPETING IN THE WORLD MARKET. AND YOU CAN CALL IT ARROGANT. YOU CAN CALL IT WHATEVER WE ALL THINK WE'RE THE BEST, MOST EFFICIENT PRODUCERS ON EARTH. AND NOW WE'RE WILLING TO PUT OUR MONEY WHERE OUR MOUTH IS. SO MY DEAL IS BRING THEM ON.
THE REALITY IS THESE AGREEMENTS ARE AN AMALGAM OF A WHOLE LOT OF VERY INTENSELY NEGOTIATED DETAILS. WHEN YOU START PULLING ONE STRING IN ONE PLACE, AND SOMETHING ELSE COMES APART IN ANOTHER PLACE. THE HOPE WOULD BE PEOPLE WILL BECOME FAMILIAR WITH WHAT'S IN THE AGREEMENT. PEOPLE HAVE NOW HAD ACCESS TO THE TEXT TO LOOK AT. REALIZE OUR NEGOTIATORS DID A GREAT DEAL OF WORK TO COME UP WITH A SENSIBLE, APPROACH TO ALL ASPECTS, INCLUDING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PIECES. THOSE CONVFRSATIONS WILL CONTINUE. BUT IT'S NOT AS A SIMPLE MATTER OF JUST REOPENING THE TEXT AND SAYING WE'RE GOING TO REDO THIS PIECE OF IT. EVERY PIECE OF THAT AGREEMENT IS RELATED TO EVERY OTHER PIECE OF THAT AGREEMENT.
SYNGENTA SEARCHES FOR SUITORS IN POSSIBLE ACQUISITION:
MORE DISCUSSION AROUND A POSSIBLE ACQUISITION OF SYNGENTA. BLOOMBERG REPORTING THE AGRI-CHEMICAL COMPANY HAS REJECTED A 42 BILLION DOLLAR TAKEOVER BID BY CHINA NATIONAL CHEMICAL CORP.
BLOOMBERG SAYS SYNGENTA IS STILL IN TALKS WITH POSSIBLE SUITORS. THE COMPANY DECLINING TO COMMENT.
WE'VE HEARD A LOT ABOUT DR. HANK HARRIS AND HIS COMPANY HARRISVACCINES OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS-THE MAKER OF A PEDV VACCINE AND MORE RECENTLY AN AVIAN FLU VACCINES ANNOUNCING PLANS TO BE ABSORBED BY MERCK ANIMAL HEALTH.
MERCK SAYS IT'S BUYING THE PRIVATELY HELD COMPANY FOR AN UNDISCLOSED AMOUNT.
CROP WATCH:
GOOD MORNING CLINTON. LET'S START OFF CROPWATCH IN ONTARIO, CANADA.
ANDY PASZTOR SENT US THIS PHOTO. HE SAYS CURRENTLY, CONDITIONS ARE GOOD IN THE AREA. HOWEVER, CORN IS VARIABLE DUE TO A LATE MAY FROST.
HARVEST IS NOT QUITE COMPLETE-HE HAS A FEW HUNDRED ACRES LEFT.
MOVING OVER TO EAST CENTRAL IOWA. A VIEWER POSTED ON AGWEB:A MAJORITY OF CORN IS HARVESTED IN THE AREA. BUT SOME FARMERS ARE FINISHING UP. HIGH WINDS CAME THROUGH THE AREA LAST WEEK. THOUGH IT DID BLOW DOWN SOME CORN, THERE IS NOT TOO MUCH DAMAGE. USDA SAYS 93-PERCENT OF IOWA'S CORN IS HARVESTED. A NEW REPORT COMES OUT THIS AFTERNOON. NOW TAKING A LOOK AT THE DROUGHT MONITOR THERE ARE ONLY PATCHES OF MODERATE DROUGHT EAST OF THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE BUT WEST OF THERE IT CONTINUES TO BE VERY DRY EVEN THOUGHT WE HAVE SEEN SOME IMPROVEMENT IN THE NORTHWEST WE'LL HAVE YOUR FORECAST FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK COMING UP IN A FEW MINUTES.
TEASE:
 UP NEXT WE'LL TRY TO GET A READ ON CATTLE MARKETS HEADING INTO THE END OF THE YEAR. PLUS MACHINERY PETE IS HERE.
STAY TUNED, FOLKS. COMING UP I WILL TELL YOU ABOUT A 600 HORSE POWER TRACTOR THAT SOLD FOR $270,000. AND IT'S AMAZING HOW MUCH INFORMATION A SMARTPHONE CAN CARRY. LATER ON IN THE COUNTRY, WE'LL TELL YOU ABOUT AN APP THAT JUST ABOUT DAIRY FARMER COULD FIND USEFUL IN DAY-TO-DAY OPERATIONS.
FARMLAND INVESTMENT PLANS TO BUY 22 THOUSAND ACRES:
A LARGE FARMLAND INVESTMENT FIRM IS GETTING EVEN BIGGER.
FARMLAND PARTNERS ANNOUNCED IT PLANS TO BUY 22-THOUSAND ACRES OF ILLINOIS FARMLAND. THE PRICE TAG -197 MILLION DOLLARS OR ABOUT 88HUNDRED DOLLARS AN ACRE.
ACCORDING TO THE COMPANY NEWS RELEASE, THE PAYMENT IS IN CASH AND STOCK. FARMLAND PARTNERS INDICATES THE SELLER IS A SINGLE UNIT.
THIS PURCHASE WILL PUSH FARMLAND'S ACREAGE TO NEARLY 100-THOUSAND ACRES.
FARMLAND SAYS IT INTENDS TO NEGOTIATE NEW LEASES WITH TENANTS WHO ARE CURRENTLY FARMING THE LAND.
AGRIBUSINESS:
HERE AT THE AGRIBUSINESS DESK THIS MORNING CRAIG VANDYKE, TOP THIRD, AGMARKETING. CRAIG, LET'S TALK ABOUT THE CATTLE PRICES AND THE CATTLE MARKETS, YOU WATCH THOSE REALLY CLOSELY, IT HAS BEEN VOLATILE.
>VOLATILE IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT OVER THE PAST TWO WEEKS AND REALLY OVER THE PAST TWO, THREE MONTHS STARTING IN SEPTEMBER. WE HAVE SEEN ONE OF THE BIGGEST BREAKS WE HAVE SEEN IN FAT PRICES IN SEPTEMBER THERE AND VOLATILITY IN THE CATTLE MARKET SHOULDN'T BE ANYTHING NEW COMPARED TO WHAT WE HAVE SEEN IN THE PAST TWO-THREE YEARS. SO ABSOLUTELY, YOU KNOW, NO ONE IN THE COUNTRY KNOWS WHAT THE PRICE OF CATTLE IS. HOW IS THE BOARD GOING TO KNOW WHAT THE PRICE OF CATTLE IS?
WE HAVE SEEN A BIG SWING FROM 140 DOWN TO 120S, BACK UP TO 138; YOU KNOW WHERE ARE WE GOING TO TRADE THIS WEEK? EXPECTATIONS AROUND 131 SO THAT VOLATILITY IS DRYING UP SOME OF THE LIQUIDITY IN THIS MARKET AND THAT'S WHY WE ARE SEEING THESE LIMIT MOVES. BECAUSE WE ARE SEEING THE LIQUIDITY PULL BACK, WE ARE SEEING VOLUME IS STARTING TO DRY UP A BIT AND AS FAR AS GUYS WANTING TO STAND IN THERE AND TAKE THAT RISK EVERYONE'S MANEUVERED THE SIDELINE AND THAT'S WHY YOU SEE SUCH LOW VOLUME SO DRASTICALLY WITHIN MILLI SECONDS. AS FAR AS WHERE CATTLE PRICES ARE HEADED HERE IN THE NEAR TERM...> AND I THINK THAT'S THE QUESTION EVERYBODY IS ASKING, OK, SO WE MOVED $8, $9 ONE WEEK, THE NEXT WEEK IT'S BACK. WHAT DIRECTION DO WE SEE? IS IT JUST GOING TO BE KIND OF A STEADY TRICKLE DOWN?> WELL, WE HAVE SEEN WHEAT PASTURE DEMAND DRY UP HERE. THAT'S KIND OF SLOWED UP HERE AS WE MOVE FORWARD AND I WOULD EXPECT THAT TO BE DRYING UP HERE IN THE NEAR TERM, AS FAR AS BOXED BEEF AND PRODUCT GOES, WE HAVE SEEN IT MOVE LOWER THIS PAST WEEK AND THAT CONTINUES INTO TODAY. WE HAVE SEEN A MOVE LOWER THIS PAST WEEK AND THAT CONTINUES INTO TODAY AND THAT'S GOING TO BE SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO BE CLOSELY MONITORED, BUT AS WE HAVE SEEN OVER THE PAST TWO, THREE YEARS DEMAND FOR BEEF IS INELASTIC AND ACTUALLY WHEN YOU LOOK AT FOURTH QUARTER DEMAND MOVING INTO THIS YEAR, DESPITE DRESSED WEIGHTS BEING RECORD HEAVY, WE ARE LOOKING AT A POTENTIAL ONE OF THE LARGEST YEAR OVER YEAR INCREASES PER CAPITA IN CONSUMPTION IN DOMESTIC DEMAND, WITH THE DOLLAR BEING STRONG AND THE AUSSIE BEING WEAK, WE HAVE SEEN AUSTRALIAN IMPORTS COME IN, WHICH HAS WEIGHED IN ON CATTLE PRICES HERE AND OUR EXPORT IMPORT MARKET. AUSTRALIA CATTLE PRICES ARE TRADING AT RECORD LEVELS THIS PAST YEAR, IF WE CAN GET A CHANGE ON THE DOLLAR HOW DOES THAT AFFECT OUR BEEF EXPORTS AND IMPORTS. USDA EXPECTS AN INCREASE IN BEEF EXPORTS, WHETHER OR NOT THAT WILL HAPPEN IS YET TO BE DETERMINED.> ALL RIGHT, A LOT TO WATCH AS WE HEAD INTO NEXT YEAR'S CATTLE MARKETS. THANKS FOR BEING HERE CRAIG. WE WILL BE BACK WITH MORE AGDAY IN JUST A MINUTE.

NATIONAL WEATHER:
WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY WITH METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN. MIKE, WE HAVE KIND OF BEEN WATCHING THE DROUGHT MONITOR OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS. I WOULD SAY THE SOUTH HAS SEEN SOME BIG CHANGES. YES, THEY HAVE. WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO SEE A FAIR AMOUNT OF MOISTURE THIS WEEK IN LOTS OF THE COUNTRY. WHEN YOU SEE THE FORECAST, YOU'LL SEE WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. OVER THE PAST, IT HAS BEEN FAIRLY WET ACROSS PARTS OF THE SOUTHEAST. YOU CAN SEE FROM EAST TEXAS, ALL THE WAY INTO THE SOUTHEASTERN PARTS OF THE COUNTRY, THAT'S WHERE THE MAJORITY OF THE MOISTURE HAS BEEN THIS PAST WEEK. SOME DECENT AMOUNTS IN THE NORTH CENTRAL PLAINS AND SOME VERY HEAVY AMOUNTS IN WEST TEXAS.
BEEN GETTING A LOT OF MOISTURE AS WELL. LET'S FOCUS IN THE AREA OF THE SOUTHEAST. YOU CAN SEE SEVERAL STRIPES OF ORANGES THERE. THAT'S SHOWING THREE INCHES OR MORE OF THE PREVIOUS SATURDAY THROUGH THIS FRIDAY. THAT'S A 7 DAY PERIOD HERE. THEN YOU SEE THE PANHANDLE OF FLORIDA GETTING SOME PRETTY HEAVY AMOUNTS AS WELL. THE SOUTHEAST AND THE MAJORITY OF IT WILL BE WET THROUGH A GOOD CHUNK OF THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY. HERE'S WHY. THE JET STREAM SHOWS THE TROUGH COMING INTO THE WEST. NOW WATCH WHAT HAPPENS AS WE PUT IT INTO MOTION. THE RIDGE IN THE EAST IS TRYING TO WARM THINGS BACK UP. IT'S NOT GOING TO DO IT LIKE LAST WEEK. WHAT WE'RE GOING TO SEE IS A BIG BOWLING BALL COMING
ACROSS THE COUNTRY. THAT'S A SLOW MOVER. THE WET SYSTEM COULD LAST THREE OR FOUR DAYS IN MANY PARTS OF THE PLAINS. AND THE OHIO VALLEY, TENNESSEE VALLEY IS GOING TO PUT DOWN A LOT OF RAIN THE WAY IT LOOKS.
YOU CAN SEE AFTER THAT, AS WE HEAD INTO THE FOLLOWING WEEK, THIS IS PROBABLY WHERE THE ENTIRE PATTERN STARTS CHANGING. WE'RE LOOKING AT THE COLDER AIR THAT'S BEEN OUT WEST FOR THE PAST SEVERAL WEEKS, STARTING TO SPREAD TO THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN PARTS OF THE COUNTRY AS WE HEAD TOWARDS THANKSGIVING. WE DO SEE A SHIFT. THIS COMING WEEK, WE'RE STRUGGLING ABOVE NORMAL FROM MINNESOTA, FLORIDA, ON THROUGH THE NORTHEAST. NEAR NORMAL IN BETWEEN THEN FROM TEXAS TO WESTERN SOUTH DAKOTA, WESTWARD TO THE PACIFIC, BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED. FOR PRECIPITATION THIS WEEK, WE'RE SEEING HUGE CHUNKS IN THE LOWER 48 EXPECTED TO BE ABOVE NORMAL. FROM THE PLAINS STATE TO THE EAST COAST, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF A DRY AREA. LET'S CALL IT A NORMAL AREA. THAT'S JUST EAST OF THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE. YOU WON'T GET QUITE AS MUCH RAIN AS OTHER PLACES BUT THEN THAT'S GOING TO BE A COUPLE OF STORMS COMING INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. SO ABOVE NORMAL THERE AS WELL. 30 DAY OUTLOOK FOR TEMPERATURES. NOW, I'M STILL GOING ABOVE NORMAL FROM THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER, EASTWARD. BUT A LOT OF THAT IS FOR THIS COMING WEEK. IT'S GOING TO BE WAY ABOVE NORMAL. I DO THINK IT TURNS COLDER OUT HERE AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE REST OF THE MONTH. THAT'S BELOW NORMAL FOR THE WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE COUNTRY. THIS MAP IS PROBABLY GOING TO CHANGE A FAIR AMOUNT THE NEXT TIME YOU SEE THE 30 DAY OUTLOOK. ABOVE NORMAL FOR MUCH OF THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PLAINS. THAT'S SOUTHEAST IS ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE FAR NORTHERN TERRIF STATES. THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
REGIONAL WEATHER:
NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS. FOR LONGVIEW, WASHINGTON, COOL WITH TIMES OF RAIN TODAY. HIGH TEMPERATURE AROUND 50 DEGREES. COLEMAN, TEXAS IS BREEZY AND WARM. A SHOWER OR A HEAVY THUNDERSTORM. THE HIGH IS 75. LAFAYETTE, INDIANA IS VARIABLY CLOUDY, MAYBE A SHOWER. THE HIGH TEMPERATURE IS AROUND 57 DEGREES.
WHEN WE COME BACK, MACHINERY PETE SAYS THE FARM ECONOMY ISN'T KEEPING MONEY FROM FARM AUCTIONS. HE'S STILL SEEING STRONG PRICES FOR BIG MACHINES.
MACHINERY PETE:
DESPITE TOUGH MARKET CONDITIONS MACHINERY PETE CONTINUES TO SEE STRONG PRICES FOR BIG EQUIPMENT AT AUCTION.
GREG.
LAST WEEK ON AN AUCTION IN NORTH DAKOTA. WELL, LAST THURSDAY ON A FARM AUCTION IN SOUTHWEST NORTH DAKOTA THIS 2012 CASEIH STAGGER 600 QUADTRAC, WITH 1575 HOURS SOLD FOR $270,000. NOW, I THINK THAT'S A PRETTY STRONG PRICE AND I SAY THAT FOR TWO REASONS. FIRST, COME BACK IN TIME WITH ME THREE YEARS TO A SNOWY DEALER AUCTION I COVERED DEC. 27, 2012, IN NORTH CENTRAL IOWA, WHERE THIS 2011 MODEL STAGGER 600 QUADTRAC, WAS 758 HOURS SOLD FOR $300,000, SO AT THE TIME THAT WAS A ONE YEAR OLD MODEL. NOW, AGAIN THE ONE THAT SOLD THURSDAY IN NORTH DAKOTA WAS THREE YEARS OLD WITH TWICE THE HOURS AND BROUGHT 270, SO ONLY 10 PERCENT LESS. NOW, THE OTHER REASON I SAY THAT 270 IS A STRONG PRICE, WELL I JUST LOOKED AT OUR MACHINERY PETE.COM WEBSITE DEALER LISTING AND I FOUND THIS ONE LISTED FOR SALE, SAME YEAR, 2012 MODEL, ALMOST THE SAME HOURS, 1598, ASKING PRICE $289,500, BY TITAN MACHINERY IN THE SAME STATE JAMESTOWN, NORTH DAKOTA. SO THAT'S ACTUALLY WITHIN 20,000BUCKS OF OUR 270,000 ON THE AUCTION THURSDAY. NOW REMEMBER, FOLKS, WHEN IT COMES TIME TO FINDING AND VALUING YOUR NEXT PIECE OF USED EQUIPMENT, CHECK US OUT AT MACHINERY PETE. COM.
TEASE:
GET YOUR I-PHONE READY. NEXT WE'LL TELL YOU ABOUT AN APP THAT EVERY DAIRY PRODUCER COULD FIND VERY HANDY.
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.
THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT:
WISCONSIN CONTINUES TO BE ON THE CUTTING EDGE OF THE GLOBAL DAIRY INDUSTRY. FROM CALCULATING PROPER STALL SIZE IN DAIRY BARNS TO COLLECTING DATA ON COW HEALTH, THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT! IN THIS VIDEO PROVIDED BY THE WISCONSIN MILK MARKETING BOARD, FIND OUT HOW A MOBILE APP IS HELPING DAIRY FARMERS ACROSS THE GLOBE.
AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN'S ARLINGTON FARM RESEARCH STATION, THEY'RE USING MODERN TECHNOLOGY TO TRACK HERD HEALTH. IN THE PAST, THAT TOOK A LOT OF TIME AND PAPERWORK. WE HAD LOTS OF PAPER RECORDS AND WE WANTED TO TURN THAT INTO SOMETHING MORE FUNCTIONAL. WITH THE HELP OF THE DOIT CENTER ON CAMPUS, THE UW-MADISON SCHOOL OF VETERINARY MEDICINE DEVELOPED A SERIES OF DIGITAL TEACHING TOOLS, WHICH CONTINUE TO PLAY A ROLE IN PREPARING THE NEXT GENERATION OF FOOD ANIMAL VETERINARIANS. WE NOW HAVE AN APP WITH PICTURES, WITH A SCORING SYSTEM, WITH JUST A TOUCH SCREEN SYSTEM TO BE ABLE TO SCREEN FOR A LOT OF COWS VERY QUICKLY. WHAT STARTED AS A TOOL TO HELP STREAMLINE THE TEACHING PROCESS FOR STUDENTS, RESULTED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF MOBILE APPS TO HELP DAIRY FARMERS AND DAIRY CONSULTANTS IN THEIR DAY TO-DAY FARM ACTIVITIES. THESE APPS ARE REALLY USEFUL IN GIVING ME ONE SPACE THAT HAS ALL OF THE INFORMATION THAT I NEED AND ALLOWS ME TO LOOK AT THE VISUALS WHEN I'M OUT ON FARM THAT OTHERWISE I WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO HAVE ACCESS TO.REALIZING HOW USEFUL THE APPS COULD BE FOR NON-STUDENTS, THE VET SCHOOL MADE THEM AVAILABLE ON ITUNES FOR PUBLIC USE. WE'RE SEEING A LOT OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE UTILIZE THE APPS AND BUYING THEM NOT ONLY IN THE U.S., BUT ALSO AROUND THE WORLD. THE APPS OFFER VISUAL AIDS AND EVEN VIDEO CUES TO HELP USERS IDENTIFY WAYS TO IMPROVE THEIR DAIRY OPERATIONS. IS THERE ANY OTHER PLACE TO LEARN ABOUT DAIRY CATTLE THAN WISCONSIN? YOU KNOW, I'M BIASED, BUT I THINK WE'RE LEADING THE WAY WITH USEABLE TOOLS WITH A FOCUS ON HELPING FARMERS AND THEIR CONSULTANTS SOLVE EVERYDAY PROBLEMS. AND THAT'S WISCONSIN DAIRY NEWS.
CURRENTLY THE MOBILE APPS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE ON THE APPLE PLATFORM, BUT WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE FOR ANDROID DEVICES SOON.
SINCE LAUNCHING THE APPS LAST SEPTEMBER, THERE HAVE BEEN NEARLY 900 DOWNLOADS IN 40 COUNTRIES ON SIX CONTINENTS. PROCEEDS FROM PURCHASES SUPPORT ONGOING APP DEVELOPMENT.
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. TUESDAY ON AGDAY WE'LL HAVE THE MARKET NEWS FROM CHICAGO. PLUS ANALYSIS TO HELP YOU WITH YOUR BOTTOM LINE. AND FARM COUNTRY WEATHER TO PLAN YOUR DAY. WATCH US DAILY HERE ON AGDAY.
