HEADLINES
TODAY ON AGDAY - A NEW TOOL IN THE BATTLE AGAINST WEEDS IS GETTING  TANGLED UP IN WASHINGTON. WE'RE LOOKING AT WHATS NEXT FOR DICAMBA TOLERANT CROPS. IN AGRIBUSINESS... SORTING OUT HARVEST MARKETS. THEIR  MODEL SAYS THAT YOU GO SELL THE WINNERS AND GO LOOK FOR SOMETHING  THAT'S UNDERVALUED. MACHINERY TELLS US WHY NOW MIGHT JUST BE A GOOD  TIME TO SELL USED EQUIPMENT. THESE 4-HER'S CAN'T VOTE IN TUESDAY'S ELECTION...BUT THEY CAN LEARN ABOUT THE POLITICAL PROCESS. “THOSE ARE THINGS THAT WE WANT TO KNOW WHERE SOMEBODY STANDS WHEN  WE ARE ELECTING A PRESIDENT" AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE,  LONG LASTING CHEVY SILVERADO.

DICAMBA CONTROVERSEY
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. REGARDLESS OF WHO WINS THE  WHITEHOUSE, THE NEXT ADMINISTRATION IS GOING TO HAVE SOME UNFINISHED  BUSINESS AT THE EPA. THE AGENCY STILL WORKING ON FINAL APPROVALS FOR A NEW FORMULATION OF  DICAMBA. IT'S ALREADY APPROVED DICAMBA TOLERANT SOYBEANS BUT THE INDUSTRY  CONTINUES TO WAIT ON THE HERBICIDE. BUT THAT DELAY LEFT BEHIND A MESS IN 2016, AND NEXT YEAR ACREAGE COULD  BE EVEN HIGHER. BETSY JIBBEN HAS MORE ON THE PRODUCT, THE CONTROVERSY AND THE  POSSIBLE OPPORTUNITIES AHEAD. BUT IT'S ONE OF THE FIRST YEARS HE'S CUTTING ROUNDUP READY 2XTEND SOYBEANS.."WE HAVE A LOT OF 4 BEAN PODS OUT THERE. THEY'RE A GREAT YIELDING SOYBEAN," THE NORTHWEST OHIO FARMER AND SEED SALESMEN SAYS FARMERS ARE PAYING  ATTENTION.POND SAYS OVER HALF OF HIS NEAR YEAR'S EARLY SEASON SOYBEAN SALES ARE GOING TO THE XTEND LINE.  OUR EARLY SEASON SALES ARE GOING REALLY WELL.MONSANTO DEBUTED XTEND SOYBEAN TECHNOLOGY IN 2016.  IT GAINED EU IMPORT APPROVAL BY MID-YEAR. REPRESENTATIVES OF MONSANTO SAY THEY'RE PROJECTING OVER 15 MILLION ACRES OF THE 2 XTEND SOYBEANS IN 2017.BUT THE NEW TECHNOLOGY IN THE TOOLBOX HAS ITS CONTROVERSY: FARMERS CAN PLANT THE SEEDS, BUT CANNOT SPRAY THE INTENDED  HERBICIDE.THE HERBICIDE IS NOT APPROVED BY EPA.  THE PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD HAS CLOSED AND EPA IS REVIEWING THE COMMENTS RECEIVED ON THE  HERBICIDE PROPOSAL. YET, SOME FARMERS ILLEGALLY SPRAYED EARLIER THIS YEAR, WHICH DRIFTED  AND DESTROYED THOUSANDS OF ACRES OF CROPS.  40-THOUSAND ACRES IN MISSOURI ALONE BELIEVED TO BE FROM SPRAY. THE EPA IS ISSUING FEDERAL SEARCH WARRANTS IN AT LEAST FOUR MISSOURI  COUNTIES LOOKING FOR EVIDENCE OF MISUSE. IT'S ONE REASON WHY INDIANA FARMER, GEORGE KAKASULEFF IS COMMUNICATING  WITH HIS NEIGHBORS, EVEN THOUGH HE'S NOT SPRAYING. "YOU CAN'T ASSUME PEOPLE HAVE ROUNDUP ANYMORE. MOST OF THEM KNOW WE'VE HAD XTEND FOR  NOW FOR TWO SEASON. WE HAVE THAT DIALOGUE WITH NEIGHBORS AND TRY TO ALL KNOW WHAT  EACHOTHER HAS,"STATE OFFICIALS IN THOSE INVESTIGATIONS POINTING TO OLDER FORMULATIONS  OF DICAMBA, BEING SPRAYED OVER TOLERANT SOYBEANS, WHICH ARE MORE  VOLATILE AND PRONE TO DRIFT.  AMERICAN SOYBEAN ASSOCIATION'S RON MOORE PARTIALLY BLAMING EPA FOR  NOT APPROVING THE NEW FORMULATIONS OF DICAMBA LIKE THEY SAID THEY  WOULD. "IF THEY HAD APPROVED THE PRODUCT FOR USE THIS SUMMER, WE WOULDNT' HAVE THE ISSUES WE  HAVE NOW."YET HE ANTICIPATES THE EPA APPROVALS FOR THE NEW FORUMULATIONS OF  DICAMBA NEXT YEAR."THE NEW FORMULATIONS FOR DICAMBA WHICH COMES IN XTEND DOESN'T HAVE THE DRIFT POTENTIAL.  IT'S NOT AS VOLITAL AS THE OLD FORMULATIONS."THESE FARMERS SAY THE TECHNOLOGY IS CRUCIAL- ESPECIALLY WHEN IT  COMES TO WEED RESISTANCE..  "WE NEED ANOTHER TOOL IN THE CABNET WE CAN UTILIZE THAT HAS GOOD CONTROL ON WEEDS,"INDUSTRY SPECIALISTS AGREE - WEED RESISTANCE IS ONLY GROWING..  "THE ISSUE SURROUNDING HERBICIDE RESISTANCE IN WEED POPULATIONS, NOT ONLY IN ILLINOIS BUT THE U.S. HAS INCREASED IN FREQUENCY DRAMATICALLY OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS,"HOWEVER, HAGAR BELIEVES THERE IS NO SINGLE TOOL USED TO REDUCE  WEEDS. "PEOPLE THINK, WELL, WE CAN'T CONTROL IT WITH THIS, WE'RE GOING TO SWITCH OVER HERE AND ALL WE  DO THEN IS START THAT CYCLE OF SELECTION OVER AGAIN,"THE APPROVAL PROCESS MAY BE OUT OF THE PRODUCER'S CONTROL..  BUT FARMERS LIKE POND ARE HOPEFUL IT'S AN ADVANCEMENT IN THE FUTURE..  "THERE ARE A LOT OF NEW PRODUCTS OUT THERE. WE JUST NEED TO GET THEM OUT THERE AND PUT THEM  IN THE FARMER'S HANDS SO WE CAN USE THEM," THIS IS BETSY JIBBEN REPORTING. THANKS BETSY. THE CONFLICT OVER DICAMBA DRIFT CAN BE SERIOUS.. IT'S EVEN BEING  IMPLICATED IN A RECENT FARMER SHOOTING. ASA AND THE COMPANIES STRONGLY REMIND GROWERS TO FOLLOW ALL CURRENT LABEL GUIDELINES. 

USDA AG EXPORT FORECAST
USDA UPDATING ITS FORECAST FOR AGRICULTURAL EXPORTS. THE AGENCY NOW  EXPECTING OUTBOUND AG GOODS TO HIT 127-BILLION DOLLARS.. THAT'S NEARLY  THREE BILLION HIGHER THAN PREVIOUS ESTIMATES. MEANWHILE U-S AG IMPORTS WERE REVISED LOWER, LEAVING A TRADE SURPLUS  OF 13-POINT-SEVEN BILLION DOLLARS. THE AG DEPARTMENT SAYS THERE WAS INCREASED DEMAND FOR CORN,  SORGHUM AND DDG'S TO HELP BOLSTER THE EXPORTS OUTLOOK.

BEEF EXPORTS
SPEAKING OF EXPORTS, THE FEDERATION OF STATE BEEF COUNCILS  ANNOUNCING THAT ITS INVESTING ALMOST $1 MILLION TO STIMULATE MORE  OVERSEAS DEMAND FOR AMERICAN BEEF.  FOR EXAMPLE, THE GROUP WILL SPEND $260,000 FOR PROMOTIONS IN JAPAN,  HOPING TO MOVE AN ADDITIONAL 6.9 MILLION POUNDS OF U.S. BEEF.  THE ORGANIZATION ALSO PLANS TO TARGET AREAS LIKE KOREA AND ASIAN  ISLAND COUNTRIES.THE US POULTRY PROCESSING INDUSTRY HAS UNDERGONE TREMENDOUS  GROWTH IN THE LAST 25 YEARS ACCORDING TO THE USDA, PRODUCTION HAS NEARLY DOUBLED SINCE 1990.

POULTRY PRODUCTION HITS RECORD
IN 2015, FEDERALLY INSPECTED POULTRY PRODUCTION HIT A RECORD 46.3  BILLION LBS.SINCE 1990, CHICKEN PRODUCTION HAS INCREASED BY 113 PERCENT. AND IT'S UP  NEARLY 900 PERCENT SINCE 1960. MEANWHILE, TURKEY PRODUCTION HAS ADVANCED 23 PERCENT SINCE 1990.  DUCK PRODUCTION IS UP 41 PERCENT.

CROP COMMENTS
CROP COMMENTS IS POWERED BY RESICORE HERBICIDE FOR CORN, FROM  DOW AGROSCIENCES." MIKE HOFFMAN HAS THIS MORNING'S CROP COMMENTS TO START OFF THE  WEEK. MIKE.GOOD MORNING, CLINTON.  LAUREN ARBOGAST FROM VIRGINIA SENT US THIS PHOTO OVER SOCIAL MEDIA.  SHE SAYS SHE ONLY CHOPPED CORN THIS YEAR AND HARVEST IS NOW  COMPLETE.OTHERS IN THE AREA HAVE A LONG WAYS TO GO. SOYBEANS ARE MOSTLY  STANDING IN FIELDS, STILL DRYING DOWN.  LAUREN TURLEY FROM WEBSTER COUNTY, KENTUCKY SENT US THIS PHOTO.  SHE JUST WRAPPED UP HARVEST LAST WEEK. YIELDS WERE AVERAGE. LAUREN  SAYS HEAVY RAINS THROUGHOUT THE GROWING SEASON HURT A LOT OF YIELDS IN THE AREA.  AND TAKING A LOOK AT THE DROUGHT MONITOR YOU CAN SEE IT HAS GOTTEN WORSE IN THE SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI VALLEY INTO THE SOUTH EAST SLIGHTLY BETTER IN THE NORTH EAST WE’LL HAVE YOUR FORECAST FOR THE COMING WEEK AND THE NEXT THRITY DAYS COMING UP BUT NOW HERE ARE SOME HOMETOWN TEMPS

TEASE
WHEN WE COME BACK WE'LL CHECK ON MARKETS HEADING INTO ELECTION  WEEK. PLUS MACHINERY PETE. "STAY TUNED FOLKS COMING UP WE'LL TALK ABOUT RED HOT PRICES FROM A  PAIR OF FARM AUCTIONS LAST THURSDAY." "I'M CHARLES DENNEY.  THEY CAN'T REALLY VOTE IN THIS UPCOLMING  ELECTION., BUT SOME TENNESSEE 4HERS STILL CAST THEIR BALLOTS AND LEARN ABOUT THE POLITICAL PROCESS. THAT STORY COMING UP ON AGDAY.

FLOOR OF THE CME
AGRIBUSINESS TODAY, BROUGHT TO YOU BY YAMAHA - MAKERS OF VIKING SIDE- BY-SIDES.  YAMAHA - REAL WORLD TOUGH. IN AGRIBUSINESS LETS SEE HOW MARKETS CLOSED THE WEEK OUT. FOR THAT WE'RE OFF TO THE FLOOR OF THE CME IN CHICAGO. A FAIRLY REASONABLY GOOD VOLUME SESSION HERE TODAY WITH A LOT OF  BUYING, A LOT OF SELLING MAC BEING DONE DEPENDING ON HOW YOU VIEW THE  REPORTS NEXT WEEK. AND WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN AND WHAT THE REACTION  COULD BE IN RESPONSE TO THOSE REPORTS. A LOT OF FEELING WE'LL SEE USDA INCREASE PRODUCTION AND YIELD ESTIMATES FOR SOYBEANS.  AND IT'S VERY BELIEVABLE WHEN YOU WHEN YOU TALK AROUND THE  COUNTRYSIDE AND TALK TO PRODUCERS. YOU HEAR SOME VERY VERY BIG YIELD  REPORTS COMING OUT JUST ABOUT EVERYWHERE. THE CORN MARKET, THOUGH,  FEELING A FEELING A LITTLE BIT FUNDAMENTALLY. NO DOUBT THE PRODUCTION  IS A GOOD PRODUCTION HERE THIS YEAR BUT THE YIELDS ARE TRYING TO BE  MORE VARIABLE OVER THERE. CATTLE AND HOGS MOSTLY TRADING LOWER HERE  TODAY AFTER A RESPONSE TO WHAT IS BEING PERCEIVED AS SOME RATHER  DISAPPOINTING CASH NEWS CATTLE MARKET DID START TRADING YESTERDAY.  IT'S MOSTLY UNCHANGED LEVELS. VOLUMES WERE NOT REPORTED TO BE HIGH  AND THERE SHOULD BE MORE BEING TRADED TODAY PROBABLY UNCHANGED  LEVELS AS WELL. THE MARKET HAD EXPECTED HIGHER LEVELS SO THE PRICES  BEING PAID AT UNCHANGED FOR A LITTLE BIT DISAPPOINTING. THANKS VERY  MUCH. THIS IS JACK SCOVILLE I'M VICE PRESIDENT OF PRICE FUTURES GROUP.  AFTER A BUMPY WEEK LAST WEEK, AND A NEW SUPPLY DEMAND FROM USDA DUE WEDNESDAY, TYNE MORGAN JOINS US WITH A LOOK AT WHERE MARKETS COULD  BE MOVING. 

AGRIBUSINESS
HERE NOW WITH ALLEN BURGLAR WITH BRUGLAR MARKETING. ALLEN, WE SAW  AN IMPRESSIVE MONTH IN OCTOBER FOR OUR CORN AND SOYBEAN PRICES BUT  IT SEEMED LIKE AS SOON AS THAT CALENDAR FLIPPED TO NOVEMBER, WE SAW  SOME MAJOR PRICE PRESSURE.  A LOT OF THOSE ASSET ALLOCATIONS THAT THE HEDGE FUNDS MADE GOOD  MONEY WITH THOSE IN OCTOBER. THEIR MODEL SAYS TO GO SELL THE WINNERS  AND LOOK FOR SOMETHING FOR VALUE. SO THE MONEY IS MOVING TO OTHER  SECTORS.  TO SOME DEGREE IS JUST GOING TO THE SIDELINES TOO AHEAD OF  THE U S ELECTION NEXT WEEK. THERE'S A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY ABOUT THE  REACTION TO THE ELECTION JUST WANTING TO HAVE A LITTLE MORE CASH  POSITION RATHER THAN FUTURES. WELL, WHEN WE LOOK AT THOSE THAT HAVE SOME UNPRICED BUSHELS, BUT LET'S START WITH OLD CROP, WHAT'S YOUR  ADVICE NOW? WE'RE SITTING ON IT FOR THE MOST PART.  I HAD A BUNCH OF  HEDGES FROM LAST SUMMER THAT WE'RE ENDOWED. WE HAVE SOME MONEY IN  THE BANK. WE DON'T LIKE THE BASIS LEVELS.  THOSE ARE GOING TO BE A LITTLE  ON THE WEAK SIDE ALL YEAR BUT WE THINK THEY WILL IMPROVE OVER TIME.  TYPICALLY YOU'RE GOING TO EARN SOME OF THE CARRY FROM HERE TO THE  FIRST OF DECEMBER. SO, IF YOU IF YOU'VE GOT A HEDGE POSITION, YOU NEED  TO SIT TIGHT WAIT ON THAT ON THE IMPROVEMENT IN THE BASIS. WHAT ABOUT  NEW CROP? NEW CROP WE ARE REALLY NOT DOING MUCH RIGHT HERE. WE GOT  A LITTLE BIT OF A SHORT HEDGE IN THE BEANS FROM TEN DOLLARS AND THAT'S  ON 17 BEANS AND CORN.  OUR DATA SAYS THAT EIGHT OUT OF TEN YEARS,  YOU'RE BETTER OFF WAITING UNTIL THE SPRING WHEN YOU'RE PLANNING OR IN  THE EARLY SUMMER RATHER THAN PRICING THE YEAR AHEAD. WE'RE NOW  HEARING THESE TALKS ABOUT LA NINAAGAIN. DO YOU THINK THAT PLAYS INTO  OUR MARKET? WE'LL HAVE AN IMPACT OVER THE WINTER. WE'RE STARTING TO  SEE THE SOUTH DRY OUT A LITTLE BIT. THAT'S WITH LA NINA BUT AGAIN, THE  FORECAST IS THAT IT WON'T STICK AROUND THROUGH NEXT SUMMER.   THANKS SO MUCH STAY WITH US WE'RE BACK WITH MORE AGDAY IN A MOMENT.  TO TALK WITH ALAN ABOUT HIS AG MARKET PROFESSIONAL SERVICES, CALL  BRUGLER MARKETING AND MANAGEMENT AT 402-697-3623 OR VISIT HIS WEBSITE  ATWWW.BRUGLERMKTG.COM.

WEATHER
WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY HERE ON MONDAY WITH MIKE HOFFMAN. MIKE AS WE  LOOK AT RAIN OVER THE PAST WEEK OR SO REALLY JUST POCKETS NOT REALLY  WIDESPREAD. YOU'RE EXACTLY RIGHT YOU CAN SEE THAT. GOOD FOR HARVEST I  SUPPOSE IN MOST AREAS BECAUSE THE CENTRAL CORN BELT WAS REALLY THE  ONLY PART OF THE CORN BELT GOT TOO MUCH MOISTURE THAT WAS JUST AN  INCH OR TWO IN SOME AREAS. THE BULK OF THE RAIN DID FALL IN TEXAS SAYS  YOU CAN SEE AND EVEN THAT WAS KINDA SPOTTY. SOME AREA DIDN'T GET MUCH AT ALL, OTHERS GOT ONE-TWO INCHES ESPECIALLY FROM DALLAS OVER  TOWARD LUBBOCK. AND A FEW SPOTS IN THE RIO GRANDE CENTRAL PORTIONS  OF THE RIO GRANDE ANYWAY.  ALRIGHT LET'S CHECK OUT THE SITUATION, JUST  STREAM AS WE START THIS WEEK BIG RIDGE IN THE GREAT LAKES, TROUGH OFF  THE EAST COAST, ANOTHER TROUGH DIGGING IN TO THE MIDDLE OF THE  COUNTRY AND A TROUGH WELL OFF THE WEST COAST. NOW THIS HAS BEEN A  LITTLE FARTHER EAST RECENTLY SO THIS IS FARTHER WEST NOW SO A LOT OF  THE STORMS ARE REALLY GONNA MAKE IT INTO THE WEST COAST AS WE HAD  THROUGH THIS WEEK. AND AS YOU CAN SEE AS WE PUT THE MAPS INTO MOTION  THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK GETS TO BE KIND OF A STRANGE LOOKING  SITUATION HERE RIDGE BUILDS UP OVER THE NORTHERN PLAINS WHERE IT  REALLY WARMS UP AGAIN BUT THEN WE HAVE A CUTOFF LOW IN THE  SOUTHWEST, AND EXACTLY WHERE THAT GOES IS ALWAYS TOUGH ON THE  COMPUTER MODELS. OUR MODEL STARTS TO MERGE IT WITH THE MAIN JET  STREAM AS WE HEAD INTO FRIDAY THEN ANOTHER CUT OFF FORMS OVER THE  MISSISSIPPI AND OHIO RIVER VALLEYS AS WE HEAD INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.  THOSE WILL BE SOME SHOTS OF COLDER AIR BUT THE ARCTIC AIR ANY TIME YOU  SEE THE JET STREAM ACROSS SOUTHERN CANADA IT IS STILL BOTTLED UP IT IS  NOT COMING SOUTH QUITE YET SO ABOVE NORMAL TEMPS THIS WEEK IS IN MY  FORECAST FOR MUCH OF THE LOWER FORTY EIGHT ONLY NEW ENGLAND BELOW  NORMAL, NEAR NORMAL IN THE SOUTHEAST AND MUCH OF TEXAS, AS FAR AS  PRECIPITATION IS CONCERNED FOR THE COMING WEEK BELOW NORMAL FROM  THE SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF NEW ENGLAND, PENNSYLVANIA, NEW YORK ALL  THE WAY BACK ACROSS THE NORTHERN TIER OF STATES AND THEN INTO THE  SOUTHWEST.  ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST AND ALSO MUCH OF  TEXAS INTO THE SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI VALLEY BECAUSE OF THAT CUT OFF  LOW, THE FIRST ONE AND THE SECOND ONE MAY ADD SOME A LITTLE FARTHER  EASTWARD THIRTY DAY OUTLOOK FOR TEMPERATURES IT'S OBVIOUSLY NOT  STARTING OFF BELOW NORMAL BUT I AM GOING BELOW NORMAL FOR THE NEXT  THIRTY DAYS FOR THE GREAT LAKES NORTHWARD AS WE START TO GET SHOTS  OF COLD AIR LATER IN THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER.

IN THE COUNTRY
IN THE COUNTRY - BROUGHT TO YOU BY KUBOTA'S BX AND L SERIES COMPACT  TRACTORS - AVAILABLE NOW WITH A SIX-YEAR LIMITED POWERTRAIN WARRANTY.   LEARN MORE TODAY AT YOUR LOCAL KUBOTA DEALER. ) MORE THAN 100 MILLION AMERICANS WILL CAST THEIR BALLOTS AS THE U-S  ELECTS ITS 45TH PRESIDENT TOMORROW. ALL VOTERS MUST BE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OLD, BUT YOUNGER PEOPLE ALSO  HAVE IN INTEREST IN THIS ELECTION. PROVIDED BY THE U-T INSTITUTE OF AGRICULTURE, CHARLES DENNEY  INTRODUCES US TO SOME TENNESSEE 4-HERS -- AND FUTURE VOTERS --LEARNING ABOUT THE ELECTION PROCESS. NORMALLY WHEN A TEEN HAS A LAPTOP OPEN, IT’S TO PLAY A VIDEO GAME OR  GET A GOOD LAUGH FROM A YOUTUBE VIDEO. BUT HERE THESE 8TH GRADERS  ARE CHOOSING BETWEEN CLINTON AND TRUMP. IT’S A 4-H CLUB MEETING AT  OCONEE MIDDLE SCHOOL IN CLEVELAND, BUT FOR THESE KIDS, IT’S ALSO  ELECTION DAY.  WHENEVER WE MAKE DECISIONS TO VOTE, WE'RE  MAKING A DECISION OF WHO WE WANT TO LEAD OUR COUNTRY, WHICH IS A  MAJOR THING." THESE YOUNGSTERS CAST THEIR BALLOTS AND LEARN ABOUT  GOVERNMENT IN THIS 4-H PROGRAM. MADDEN SNYDER AND GREG JORDAN HAVE STUDIED THE CANDIDATES, AND NOW MAKE THEIR DECISION – GOOD PRACTICE  THEY SAY, FOR THE FUTURE. "WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DO IT EVENTUALLY. IT'S GOOD TO  KNOW NOW HOW TO DO IT, AND IT'S NICE TO KIND OF ACTUALLY LOOK AT THE  CANDIDATES AND ACTUALLY THINK FOR YOURSELF." THESE KIDS MAY BE YOUNG,  BUT THEY ARE PERCEPTIVE ABOUT RED AND BLUE AMERICA, AND ALL THAT’S  GOING ON THIS ELECTION YEAR. I KNOW SEVERAL PEOPLE WHO HAVE EXTREMELY STRONG  OPINIONS ABOUT IT IF YOU ASK THEM." "THERE'S A LOT OF TENSION THIS TIME.  YOU THINK? THERE'S QUITE A LOT OF TENSION.”  “4-H LEADERS WANT THESE  YOUNGSTERS TO LEARN THAT VOTING IS IMPORTANT, NOT JUST A CIVIC DUTY,  BUT A WAY FOR YOUR VOICE TO COUNT. THE MESSAGE HERE IS WHEN YOU VOTE,  YOU SHAPE YOUR GOVERNMENT.” “THOSE ARE THINGS THAT WE WANT TO KNOW  WHERE SOMEBODY STANDS WHEN WE ARE ELECTING A PRESIDENT. WOULD YOU  AGREE WITH THAT?”  4-H AGENT LYNNE MIDDLETON WITH UT EXTENSION IN  BRADLEY COUNTY WANTS HER TIME WITH THESE KIDS TO BE AN INTERACTIVE  EXPERIENCE.  SHE ENCOURAGES THEM TO FORM THEIR OWN OPINIONS, NOT  JUST REPEATING WHAT THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS MIGHT THINK. "I WANT THEM TO MAKE A DECISION. WHAT'S IMPORTANT TO  YOU? HOW DO YOU FEEL ON THESE OPINIONS, THESE PLATFORMS, WHICH  CANDIDATE DO YOU SUPPORT?"  “I THINK IT'S GOOD THAT THEY'RE INFORMED ABOUT HOW THE  GOVERNMENT FUNCTIONS AND THE CHOICES, AND WILL HELP THEM MAKE GOOD  CHOICES LATER ON AND BE ACTIVE CITIZENS."  “SO THAT MEANS DONALD TRUMP  IS OUR NEW PRESIDENT IF ALL OF YOU IN HERE WERE VOTING.” WHEN THE FINAL  TALLY WAS IN, TRUMP TOOK THIS 8TH GRADE CLASS BY A 17-TO-6 COUNT. WHILE  THEY’RE TECHNICALLY SITTING OUT THIS ELECTION, SOME OF THESE  YOUNGSTERS WILL TURN 18 IN THE FALL OF 2020, MAKING THEM ELIGIBLE TO  HIRE THE NEXT, NEXT PRESIDENT OF OUR COUNTRY.  EVERYONE’S VOTE HERE  MIGHT NOT COUNT, BUT THEY LEARN THEIR OPINION CERTAINLY DOES. THIS IS CHARLES DENNEY REPORTING.

CLOSE
THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN.  FOR BETSY JIBBEN, MACHINERY PETE AND MIKE HOFFMAN,  I'M CLINTON  GRIFFITHS. HAVE A GREAT DAY. HIGH STRENGTH STEEL FOR HIGH STRENGTH DEPENDABILITY, THE CHEVY  SILVERADO IS THE OFFICIAL NEWS GATHERING VEHICLE OF AGDAY TELEVISION.
