TODAY ON AGDAY -THE DAIRY INDUSTRY IS KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON TPP
NEGOTIATIONS. PLUS, USDA INVESTIGATORS MAY HAVE FOUND THE SOURCE
OF A DEADLY PIG VIRUS. IN AGRIBUSINESS...A LOOK AT WHERE GRAIN
MARKETS ARE HEADED NOW THAT WE'RE PAST THE QUARTERLY GRAIN
STOCKS REPORT. IF YOU HAD TO LEAN ONE DIRECTION OR THE OTHER ON THE SOY BEAN YIELD
AND THE CROP, WHICH WAY WOULD YOU LEAN? AND THESE MISSOURI TEENAGERS ARE
FINDING NEW WAYS TO MAKE MONEY AND ARE HELPING TO BOOST  LOCAL
ECONOMIES.
AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE, LONG LASTING
CHEVY SILVERADO. AND BY BASF, GROW SMART WITH BASF AND GET THE
MOST ACRE AFTER ACRE SEASON AFTER SEASON.

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. WILL A WEEK'S WORTH OF
NEGOTIATIONS BRING A MULTI-NATIONAL TRADE DEAL ANY CLOSER TO A
CONCLUSION? AND COULD THE OUTCOME IMPROVE DAIRY EXPORTS FOR U-S
PRODUCERS? TRADE MINISTERS FROM 12 NATIONS MET IN MAUI HAWAII IN AUGUST. THEY
RE-CONVENED THIS WEEK IN ATLANTA TO CONTINUE TALKS OVER THE TRANSPACIFIC
PARTNERSHIP. UN-FINISHED TOPICS RANGING FROM INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY TO TRADE IN
AUTOMOBILES. THERE ARE STILL UN-FINISHED ISSUES THAT DIRECTLY PERTAIN TO
AGRICULTURE, INCLUDING DAIRY POLICY IN CANADA.
CANADIAN PRODUCERS WORRY THAT CANADA'S TRADE MINISTER WILL OPEN
THE BORDER TO MORE AMERICAN MILK WITHOUT GETTING EQUAL ACCESS IN
THE STATES,

MEANWHILE DAIRY LEADERS FROM THIS COUNTRY ARE KEEPING A CLOSE
EYE ON NEGOTIATIONS WHILE ATTENDING THE WORLD DAIRY EXPO IN
MADISON, WISCONSIN. HE U-S DAIRY INDUSTRY IS PUSHING FOR COMPREHENSIVE ACCESS TO
CANADA AND JAPAN. JIM DICKRELL, WHO IS ASSOCIATE PUBLISHER FOR DAIRY TODAY MAGAZINE,
SAYS AUSTRALIA IS ALSO PART OF THE EQUATION.
THE TWO STICKING POINTS IS THE CURRENT DEAL WOULD ALLOW NEW
ZEALAND ACCESS TO U-S MARKETS. IF WE GRANT THAT, THE U-S DAIRY
INDUSTRY WOULD LIKE TO HAVE MORE ACCESS TO BOTH JAPAN AND
CANADA. BOTH OF THOSE ARE POLITICAL HOT POTATOES RIGHT NOW.
DICKRELL SAYS DON'T EXPECT ANY THING BEFORE CANADIAN ELECTIONS
LATER THIS MONTH. AND HE SAYS THEN THERE'S A NARROW WINDOW TO
FINISH BEFORE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION CAMPAIGNS KICK INTO HIGH GEAR
IN THIS COUNTRY.

DURING THE FIRST DAY OF WORLD DAIRY EXPO, A RECORD 15-THOUSAND
PEOPLE WENT THROUGH THE FRONT GATES OF THE SHOW GROUNDS.
AGDAY NATIONAL REPORTER BETSY JIBBEN WAS ONE OF THEM, BETSY!
CLINTON I'M HERE WITH AL DEMING, WORLD DAIRY EXPO PRESIDENT OF THE
BOARD OF DIRECTOR. AL FIRST THINGS FIRST WE'RE HEAR IN MADISON,
WISCONSIN FOR WORLD DAIRY EXPO. AND THIS YEARS THEME IS DAIRY IN
OUR DNA. BUT WHAT'S THE MOOD THIS YEAR IN 2015, ESPECIALLY AS WE
HEAD TOWARDS A NEW YEAR. THE MOOD IS EXCELLENT HERE AT WORLD
DAIRY EXPO.THERE'S BEEN UPS AND DOWNS AS FAR AS MILK MARKETS AND
THINGS LIKE THAT BUT WHEN PEOPLE COME TO WORLD DAIRY EXPO, IT'S
KINDA LIKE THE FALL CELEBRATION. FROM OUR CATTLE EXHIBITORS TO OUR
COMMERCIAL EXHIBITORS. AND RIGHT NOW ON THE EXPO GROUNDS WE
HAVE 2288 CATTLE HOUSED HERE. AND OUR COMMERCIAL EXHIBITORS IN
OUR TRADE AREA, WE HAVE 367 OF THEM WHO ARE HERE AT WORLD DAIRY
EXPO. SOME IMPROVEMENTS WE'VE MADE FOR OUR CATTLE EXHIBITORS. A
YEAR AGO WE PUT UP THE NEW PAVILIONS. WE'VE TWEAKED THAT A LITTLE
BIT WITH ADDITIONAL WASH RACK SPACE WITH ADDITIONAL WAY TO PICK UP
THE MILK FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT TO GO THROUGH THE
PARLOR AND MILK THEIR CATTLE ON THE BEDDING PACKS. WE NOW HAVE
POLY DOMES INSTEAD OF PAILS SITTING OUT THERE SO IT JUST MAKES IT A
NEATER, CLEANER EXPERIENCE ALL THE WAY AROUND. IT'S A REAL EXCITING
TIME IN THE DAIRY INDUSTRY HERE AT WORLD DAIRY EXPO BECAUSE OF THE
FESTIVITIES AND FRIENDS COMING TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE,
COMMUNICATE AND RENEW OLD FRIENDSHIPS. ALRIGHT THANKS AL SO
MUCH FOR MEETING WITH US. I REALLY APPRECIATE IT. WE'LL HAVE MORE
COVERAGE FROM WORLD DAIRY EXPO IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. BACK
TO YOU CLINTON.

IT APPEARS A COMMON TOOL USED TO HAUL BULK SEED MAY BE PARTIALLY
TO BLAME FOR A DISEASE THAT KILLED SEVEN MILLION PIGLETS IN THIS
COUNTRY.
USDA'S ANIMAL AND PLANT-HEALTH INSPECTION SERVICE SAYS PORCINE
EPIDEMIC DIARRHEA VIRUS MAY HAVE ENTERED THE U-S IN FLEXIBLE
INTERMEDIATE BULK CONTAINERS.
IF YOU RECEIVE SEED OR FEED IN BULK, YOU'VE PROBABLY SEEN SIMILAR
BAGS ON YOUR FARM. USDA EXAMINED 17 POTENTIAL ROOT-CAUSE SCENARIOS THAT COULD
ALLOW THE VIRUS TO TRAVEL FROM AN OVERSEAS LOCATION TO U-S PIG
FARMS. AND WHILE THEY DIDN'T FIND DEFINITE PROOF SO FAR, THEIR INVESTIGATION
SAYS CONTAMINATED FLEXIBLE CONTAINERS ARE A DEFINITE POSSIBILITY.
USDA SAYS THE BAGS ARE DESIGNED TO BE REUSED. AND IT IS NOT A
COMMON PRACTICE TO CLEAN AND DISINFECT THESE CONTAINERS BETWEEN
USES IN THE U-S.

HURRICANE JOAQUIN IS GAINING STRENTH AND NOW HAS THE POTENTIAL TO
REACH THE EAST COAST BY THE WEEKEND.
IT'S EXPECTED TO STRENGTHEN TO CATEGORY 4 STATUS.
FORECASTERS SAY EVEN IF THE STORM REMAINS OFFSHROE, IT MAY STILL
PRODUCE HEAVY RAIN AND FLOODING FOR THE MID-ATLANTIC AREA AND
CAROLINAS. VIRGINIA'S GOVERNOR IS ISSUING A STATE OF EMERGENCY.

IN TEXAS AND PARTS OF THE SOUTH, IT'S JUST THE OPPOSITE. DROUGHT IS
INTENSIFYING. THE DROUGHT MONITOR SAYS 63 PERCENT OF THE REGION IS AT LEAST
ABNORMALLY DRY. THAT'S UP NEARLY 5 POINTS IN JUST A WEEK.
TWO THIRDS OF TEXAS NOW CONSIDERED TO BE IN DROUGHT....AS AUTHORS
SAY A FLASH DROUGHT CONTINUES TO INTENSIFY.
MIKE HOFFMAN HAS MORE AT THE AGDAY WEATHER CENTER.

GOOD MORNING CLINTON.
WE HEARD FROM A FARMER IN LAC QUI PARLE COUNTY MINNESOTA. HE'S
HARVESTED ABOUT HALF OF HIS BEANS SO FAR. HE'S AVERAGING ABOUT 60
BUSHELS AN ACRE. HE SAYS THOSE ARE HIS BEST BEANS EVER. THE YIELD
MONITOR ON CORN IS HITTING 200 BUSHELS TO THE ACRE. IN MACOUPIN
COUNTY, ILLINOIS THINGS AREN'T SO PLEASANT. A FARMER POSTED ON
AGWEB THAT HE JUST FINISHED HIS CORN HARVEST. HE CALLED IT PITIFUL.
LAST YEAR HIS FIELDS AVERAGED ABOUT 240 AN ACRE. THIS YEAR HE GOT
122 BUSHELS AN ACRE.
NOW TAKING A LOOK AT THAT FULL DROUGHT MONITOR YOU CAN SEE THE
DRYER PARTS THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IN THE SOUTHERN PLAINS
SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI VALLEY AND WE CONTINUE TO BE EXTREMELY DRY
OUT WEST OBVIOUSLY THAT'S THE WORST PART OF THE COUNTRY AND IT
HAS BEEN FOR AWHILE I'LL HAVE MY FORECAST COMING UP IN JUST A FEW
MINUTES

THANKS MIKE.
HARVEST IS COMING IN, THE USDA GRAIN STOCKS REPORT IS OUT...SO
WHERE CAN FARMERS FIND MARKET CLUES?
WE'LL HELP ANSWER THAT NEXT IN PROFARMER PROFITS BRIEFING.
AND LATER, ANSWER THE ENTREPRENEURSHIP CALL EARLY...THESE
MISSOURI TEENS ARE GETTING CREATIVE WITH WAYS TO EARN MONEY.
THAT STORY TODAY ON IN THE COUNTRY.

IN AGRIBUSINESS COMMODITY MARKETS SEEING MIXED RESULTS.
LETS DETAILS FROM THE FLOOR OF THE CME.
IT HAS BEEN A BAG OF MIXED TREATS SO TO SAY ACROSS THE BOARD. CORN
SOYBEANS WHEAT ALL GIVING US A LITTLE BIT OF SOMETHING TO PICK AND
CHOSE FROM. BUT LETS START LOOKING AT THAT CORN MARKET. CORN
EXPORT SALES CAME OUT RELATIVELY IN LINE WITH EXPECTATIONS. MORE
IMPORTANTLY ARE THE TECHNICAL LEVELS THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT. 3.93
AND HALF TO 3.99 ARE SOME VERY KEY LEVELS THE 200 DAY MOVING
AVERAGE. MOVING ON TO THE SOYBEAN MARKET A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT
HERE TODAY. TAKING SOME HEAT AFTER SOME EXPORT SALES NUMBER
CAME OUT STRONGER BUT I THINK THE TECHNICALS IS WHAT'S WEIGHING
HEAVY ON THIS MARKET. WE WEREN'T ABLE TO BREAK OUT ABOVE THE TOP
END OF THE RANGE THAT WE'VE BEEN TRADING IN FOR THE PAST TWO
MONTHS. AND THAT'S BROUGHT SELLERS AND LONG LIQUIDATIONS INTO THE
MARKET. IT CONTINUES TO BE A ROLLER COASTER IN THE LIVE CATTLE AND
FEEDER CATTLE MARKET AS WE CONTINUE THE DECLINE. A LOT OF
OPPORTUNITIES FOR TRADERS OUT THERE HOWEVER YOU HAVE TO A VERY
STRONG STOMACH TO WITHSTAND SOME OF THESE MOVES THIS HAS BEEN
OLIVER SLOUP II TRADER FROM THE FLOOR OF THE CME.


USDA UNVEILDED IT'S GRAIN STOCKS ESTIMATES WEDNESDAY.
SO WHAT IS THE MARKET FOCUSING ON NOW?
THE CREW FROM PROFARMERS JOIN US TO ANSWER THAT VERY QUESTION.
GENTLEMEN.
WELL BRAIN, WE GOT THE QUARTERLY GRAIN STOCKS REPORT OUT OF THE WAY, WE HAVE THE ANNUAL SMALL GRAINS SUMMARY OUT OF THE WAY, WHAT'S NEXT?>> WELL, WE NOW LOOK TO THE CROP PRODUCTION NUMBERS AND THE SUPPLY AND DEMAND TABLES OUT OF OCT. 9.>> YEAH, JUST A WEEK FROM TODAY WE GET ANOTHER UPDATE ON THE SIZE OF THE 2015 CORN AND SOYBEAN CROPS. IF YOU HAD TO LEAN ONE DIRECTION OR THE OTHER ON THE SOY BEAN YIELD AND THE CROP, WHICH WAY WOULD YOU LEAN?>> UH, DEFINITELY UP, BUT THESE EARLY YIELD REPORTS HAVE BEEN IMPRESSIVE, EVEN IN THE AREAS THAT WERE POOR. I MEAN  IT'S NOT LIKE THEY GOT YIELDS THAT WERE COMPARABLE A YEAR AGO IN SOME OF THESE AREAS, BUT THEY WERE BETTER THAN ANTICIPATED  AND I THINK THAT THAT LEANS UP.>> YEAH, THIS BEAN CROP THIS YEAR, AS FAR AS THE YIELD ON THE HARVESTED ACRES, IT'S REALLY PRETTY GOOD. USDA ON FRIDAY CUT .3 OF A BUSHEL OFF OF LAST YEAR'S CROP AND TOOK IT DOWN 47.5 BUSHELS PER ACRE...WE COULD BE DARN CLOSE TO THAT.>> YEAH, YOU KNOW I THINK WE WILL PROBABLY. BY THE TIME THE USDA GETS DONE ESTIMATING THIS CROP IN JANUARY THERE'S A REAL GOOD POSSIBILITY THAT THEY WILL INCH UP ANOTHER .4 OF A BUSHEL.>> OK, OCTOBER CROP PRODUCTION REPORT--THIS IS THE MONTH WHEN WE START TO ANTICIPATE THAT NAS IS GOING TO LOOK AT THE FSA CERTIFIED ACREAGE THEY HAD FOR SOME CLUES ON WHAT FINAL HARVESTED ACRES WILL BE.>>  YEAH YOU KNOW THE BIG ANTICIPATION IS THAT WE ARE GOING TO SEE A MAJOR  REDUCTION IN CORN AND BEAN ACRES. HISTORY SAYS THAT...>> BIGGER ON BEANS>> YEAH, HISTORY SAYS THAT'S PROBABLY NOT GOING TO BE THE CASE, ESPECIALLY LAST YEAR. NOW KEEP IN MIND USDA WENT BACK AND REVISED A LITTLE BIT THEIR ACREAGE NUMBERS FOR 2014 CROP.>> TOOK LIKE 450,000 ACRES OFF.>> RIGHT, BUT IT'S NOT NEARLY THE AMOUNT THAT EVERYBODY ANTICIPATED ALL THE WAY THROUGH  LAST YEAR. SO I ANTICIPATE THAT THAT'LL PROBABLY BE THE CASE AGAIN THIS YEAR.>> OK, LET’S GO TO THE SNDS ON SOYBEANS--NEW CROP BEAN CARRY OVER WAS ESTIMATED AT FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY MILLION BUSHELS A YEAR AGO; CARRY OVER FOR 1415 WAS ESTIMATED AT LIKE FOUR HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE MILLION BUSHELS AND WE END UP AT UNDER TWO HUNDRED MILLION BUSHELS.>> ALL RIGHT, YOU KNOW I ANTICIPATE THAT AS WE MOVE FORWARD WE ARE PROBABLY GOING TO SEE THEM START TO LOB SOME OFF OF WHAT THEY HAVE 15, 16 RIGHT NOW...IT'S GOING TO TAKE TIME AND WE HAVE MORE SOUTH AMERICAN COMPETITION, SO THE BIG YEAR OVER  YEAR DECREASE OR YEARLY DECREASE AS WE GO THROUGH THE MARKET A YEAR PROBABLY ISN'T GOING TO MATCH UP TO WHAT IT DID IN 1415. >> ALL RIGHT, SO THAT'S GOING TO KEEP SOME MOMENTUM OUT OF THE BEAN MARKET, UNLESS YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT DOWN SIDE.>> IT PROBABLY CAPS IT TO BE HONEST WITH YOU.>> RIGHT, WHAT ABOUT CORN?>> WELL, ON THE CORN SIDE OF THINGS ONCE AGAIN THE ACREAGE I DON'T ANTICIPATE A MAJOR REDUCTION THERE. THE YIELD IF I HAD TO LEAN ONE WAY OR THE OTHER IN THE CROP SIZE PROBABLY DOWN A LITTLE BIT, SO UP ON BEANS, DOWN ON CORN. CARRY OVER -- I THINK IT WILL CONTINUE TO SHRINK, SO YOU KNOW WERE JUST SOUTH OF 1.8 BILLION BUSHELS AND I THINK THAT WILL COME DOWN AS WE GO THROUGH THE MARKETING YEAR. >> ALL RIGHT, GETTING READY FOR THE OCT. 9 CROP PRODUCTION END SUPPLY AND DEMAND REPORTS--FOR BRAIN GRADY AND ALL THE EDITORS OF PROFARMER IN CEDAR FALLS--I'M CHIP FLORY.

GROWING CORN AND SOYBEANS IS ABOUT MORE THAN JUST YOUR YIELD.

MIKE HOFFMAN METEOROLOGIST JOINING US TODAY. MIKE I THINK
EVERYBODY IS GETTING GEARED UP WATCHING JOAQUIN REAL CLOSE. KIND
OF NERVOUS ABOUT WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. YEAH STILL COULD STAY
OUT TO SEA. STILL COULD STILL COME INLAND. EITHER WAY THEY'RE GOING
TO GET DRENCHED IN PARTS OF THE SOUTHEAST AND EAST FROM THE FIRST
STORM SYSTEM. AND THAT'S THE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE RIGHT ALONG
THE SOUTHEAST COAST RIGHT THERE. AND I'VE HEARD A LOT OF NATIONAL
FORECASTERS TALKING ABOUT ALL THIS RAIN BEING FROM THIS HURRICANE.
THAT'S NOT THE CASE AT ALL. IF THE HURRICANE DOES COME INLAND IT'S A
DOUBLE WHAMMY. WE'LL WORRY ABOUT THAT WHEN THAT COMES ALONG.
BUT IN THE MEANTIME VERY SLOW MOVING AREA OF LOW PRESSURE JUST
OFF THE SOUTH CAROLINA COAST DRENCHING THE MID-ATLANTIC. MOST OF
THE CAROLINA'S PARTS OF GEORGIA PARTS OF THE TENNESSEE VALLEY
OVER THE NEXT 48 HOURS OR SO AND MAYBE LONGER THAN THAT. YOU CAN
SEE BY TOMORROW MORNING WE'RE STILL TALKING TONS OF HEAVY RAIN
FROM THE EASTERN PORTIONS OF THE OHIO RIVER VALLEY ALL THE WAY
DOWN TO THE SOUTHEAST COAST WE'LL SEE SOME DECENT RAINS OUT OF
THIS STORM SYSTEM AND ITS NOT MOVING MUCH EITHER. EVERYTHING IS
KIND OF STACKED UP ACROSS THE COUNTRY SO HIGH PRESSURE
CONTINUES TO DOMINATE IN THE MIDDLE. STORM SYSTEMS CONTINUE TO
CAUSE PROBLEMS ON EITHER SIDE OF IT. AS YOU CAN SEE AS WE HEAD LATE
IN THE DAY TOMORROW INTO THE WEEKEND VERY HEAVY RAINS IN MUCH OF
THE SOUTHEAST AND SOME OF THAT GOES ALL THE WAY UP ONTO THE
GREAT LAKES MOVING BACK TOWARD THE WEST ONCE AGAIN SECOND
WEEKEND IN A ROW THAT THAT HAS OCCURRED. NOW THE PRECIPITATION
ESTIMATES OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS MOST OF IT ALREADY BEEN IN PLACES
IN THE SOUTHEAST THERE HAVE BEEN SOME SPOTS ACROSS THE FAR
NORTHERN PLAINS IN THE WEST. ADDING ON THE NEXT 36 HOURS WE'LL ADD
SOME OUT WEST. WE'LL ALSO ADD A LOT. AND SOME OF THIS THIS RED AREA
IS 3 INCHES OR MORE AND THAT COULD 5 OR 6 INCHES MAYBE EVEN MORE IN
SOME SPOTS FROM SOUTH CAROLINA ON UP THROUGH VIRGINIA. HIGH
TEMPERATURES TODAY ONLY IN THE 50'S AND 60'S IN MOST OF THE CORN
BELT 70'S ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE GULF COAST. THIS IS PRETTY CHILLY
AIR FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. LOW TEMPERATURES TONIGHT WE'LL SEE A
FEW 40'S POPPING UP ACROSS A WIDE AREA OF THE NORTHERN PLAINS
PARTS OF THE OHIO VALLEY AND GREAT LAKES AND EVEN 50'S IN THE
NORTHERN DIXIE WHICH IS CHILLY. HIGH TEMPERATURES TOMORROW
PRETTY MUCH THE SAME IDEA. WE'LL STILL SEE SOME 80'S IN SOUTHERN
FLORIDA SOUTHERN AND WESTERN PORTIONS OF TEXAS AND THE DESERT
SOUTHWEST. JET STREAM. ANYTIME YOU GET A BIG HIGH OVER A LOW AND
THIS IS WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT HERE IT'S AN INTERESTING SITUATION.
THAT'S WHAT STILL MAKES ME NERVOUS ABOUT WHAT JOAQUIN BECAUSE IT
COULD GET SUCKED INTO HERE IN BETWEEN THE TWO AND IF IT DOESN'T
GET CAUGHT THEN ITS OUT TO SEE. IF IT GETS CAUGHT THEN IT PROBABLY
COMES INLAND AND THAT SOMETHING WE JUST HAVE TO KEEP WATCHING.
EITHER WAY YOU CAN KIND OF SEE WE GET RID OF THAT BIG TROUGH AND
KIND OF GO MORE ZONAL AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE END OF NEXT WEEK.
THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY NOW LETS TAKE A LOOK AT SOME
LOCAL FORECASTS. FOR REDDING CALIFORNIA MOSTLY SUNNY AND VERY
WARM TODAY. HIGH TEMPERATURE UP TO 91 DEGREES. TAKING A LOOK AT
FREEMONT NEBRASKA. A MIXTURE OF CLOUDS AND SUNSHINE HIGH OF ONLY
61 AND FINALLY FLORENCE SOUTH CAROLINA BREEZY COOL HEAVY
SHOWERS AND STORMS AND HIGH OF 63.
 
UP NEXT, TEENAGERS ABILITY TO MAKE MONEY IS STRETCHING BEYOND
SIMPLE ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING.
SEE HOW THESE MISSOURI TEENS ARE HELPING TO BOOST LOCAL
ECONOMIES.

ANTIBIOTICS IN LIVESTOCK A TOPIC OF DISCUSSION AT A RECENT
PRESIDENTIAL ADVISOTRY COUNCIL.
THE GROUP GATHERING TO FOCUS ON COMBATING ANTIBIOTIC-RESISTANT
BACTERIA.
THE GROUP HEARING FROM THE FDA ON MEASURES ALREADY TAKEN TO
STOP RESISTANCE CAUSED BY DRUG IN ANIMAL AGRICULTURE.
PART OF THE DISCUSSION CENTERING AROUND THE COLLECTION OF ON
FARM DATA AND WHETHER IT'S PROPRIETARY OR TRANSPARENT IN THE
NAME OF PUBLIC HEALTH. ON THE BOARD, IS MIKE APLEY FROM K-STATE.
HE SAYS THE RECENT VETINARY FEED DIRECTIVE ALREAY IN PLACE WILL
IMPACT ANTIBIOTIC USAGE--WHAT HE WORRIES ABOUT IS SOMETHING MUCH
MORE DRASTIC.
WE DO CONTINUE TO USE ANTIBIOTICS. WE CONTINUE TO EVALUATE THEM.
WHEN WE START TALKING ABOUT JUST YANKING ANTIBIOTICS OUT OF THE
SYSTEM WE HAVE AN ISSUE OF OUR STEWARDSHIP RESPONSIBILITY TO THE
ANIMALS. BUT ONE OF THE MOST CATASTROPHIC THINGS WE COULD HAVE
HAPPEN IS FOR PEOPLE TO JUST MAKE THE DRACONIAN MOVE THAT YOU
CAN'T USE ANTIBIOTICS AT ALL. AND THEN INSTEAD OF AN EVOLUTION OF
ANTIBIOTIC USE WE HAVE A DRASTIC SUDDEN CHANGE THAT WILL CAUSE AN
ECONOMIC AND ANIMAL WELFARE CATASTROPHE.
HE SAYS HIS MESSAGE IS THAT ANIMAL AGRICULTURE IS PAYING ATTENTION
AND ARE MAKING CHANGES.
 
EVERY YEAR AT WORLD DAIRY EXPO, PRESTIGIOUS AWARDS ARE HANDED
OUT TO FOUR OUTSTANDING MEMBERS WITHIN THE INDUSTRY.
THIS TIME THE INDUSTRY PERSON OF THE YEAR IS AWARDED TO DAIRY
TODAY EDITOR JIM DICKRELL.
DICKRELL GREW UP IN THE DAIRY BUSINESS BUT HAS OVER 35 YEARS OF
EXPERIENCE WRITING ABOUT THE INDUSTRY.
HE SAYS IT'S AN HONOR TO BE A RECIPIENT OF THE AWARD BECAUSE SO
MANY PAST WINNERS WERE BIG INFLUENCES ON HIS LIFE.
WHEN I STARTED IN THIS BUSINESS AND I ALSO DAIRY FARMED FOR AWHILE
THE AVERAGE PRODUCTION PER COW WAS AT 12 OR 15 THOUSAND, TODAY THE NATIONL
AVERAGE IS AVERAGING 22 THOUSAND POUNDS, SOME HERDS ARE PRODUCING OVER 30THOUSAND
POUNDS. JIM WAS NAMED ASSOCIATE PUBLISHER IN 2007 AFTER SERVING AS EDITOR
OF DAIRY TODAY SINCE 1989. YOU CAN ALSO FIND HIM ON AGRITALK RADIO
AND ONLINE WITH HIS BI-WEEKLY NEWSLETTER. CONGRATULATIONS JIM.

UP NEXT, THE NEW WAY TO MAKE MONEY FOR SOME MISSOURI TEENS
DOESN'T INCLUDE BABY SITTING OR BAGGING GROCERIES.

TRADITIONALLY, TEENAGERS FIND WAYS TO EARN MONEY BY BABYSITTING
OR DOING CHORES AROUND THE HOUSE.
TODAY, MANY OF THESE TEENS ARE LOOKING AT ENTREPRENEURSHIP AS AN
INCOME OPTION. DEBBIE JOHNSON, WITH UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI EXTENSION, TELLS US
HOW. IT COULD BE THE POOR EMPLOYMENT OUTLOOK FOR TEENS AND YOUNG
ADULTS, BUT TODAY'S TEENS AREN'T LOOKING FOR TRADITIONAL JOBS.
I'M OWNER OF CUTIECAKES AND KNITWORKS.
INSTEAD THEY HAVE THEIR SIGHTS SET ON STARTING A BUSINESS.
I HAD A BUNCH OF FRIENDS THAT HAD THEIR OWN LITTLE BUSINESSES ON THE SIDE. THEN I THOUGHT
IT WAS COOL AND I REALIZED THEY WERE EARNING THEIR OWN MONEY AND I THOUGHT I COULD DO IT
TOO.
14-YEAR-OLD KEMPKER RECENTLY ATTENDED THE ANNUAL 4-H BUILD A
BUSINESS CAMP TO HONE HER CUSTOMER SERVICE AND BUSINESS SKILLS.
ENTREPRENEURSHIP IS PROBABLY MORE LIKE RIDING A BIKE. SO, THERE'S A STEEP LEARNING
CURVE BECAUSE IT'S DIFFERENT THAT A LOT OF THINGS, BUT ONCE YOU HAVE IT YOU CAN REALLY BUILD
ON THAT.
BY STARTING SMALL BUSINESSES, YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS ARE HELPING
TO KEEP HOMETOWN-TALENT HOME.
MANY COMMUNITIES ARE FACING THAT ISSUE OF YOUTH MOVING AWAY AFTER HIGH SCHOOL.
ENTREPRENEURSHIP OFFERS A METHOD BY WHICH YOUNG PEOPLE CAN FIND THERE ARE
OPPORTUNITIES IN THEIR BACKYARD.
KEMPKER IS AN EXAMPLE OF A BUDDING ENTREPRENEUR TAKING
ADVANTAGE OF MU EXTENSION OPPORTUNITIES, SUCH AS BUILD A BUSINESS
CAMP.
IN THOSE WAYS WE'RE MAKING CONNECTIONS AND HELPING THEM TAKE THE NEXT STEP
THAT WILL GROW THEIR NETWORK AND PUT THEM IN FRONT OF THE PEOPLE THAT THEY'RE GOING TO
NEED TO SUCCEED.
"AND I CAN ALSO DO THEM WITH A FLOWER TOO."
FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI I'M DEBBIE JOHNSON REPORTING.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN.
FOR MIKE HOFFMAN, AND AL PELL. I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. HAVE A GREAT
DAY.
