TODAY ON AGDAY
October 13, 2015

Opening:
COMING UP TODAY ON AGDAY,
THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA PAVES ITS OWN PATH FOR ON FARM ANITIBIOTIC USAGE.
PLUS, USDA UPDATES IT'S CROP AND HARVEST PROGRESS.
IN AGRIBUSINESS...THE CASE FOR BULLISH WHEAT PRICES.
"IN FACT, IF YOU DELETE THE CHINESE EQUATION, WE ARE ONLY A HANDFULOF DAYS LOOSER THAN WE WERE IN 2007,"
PLUS, AN INSPIRATIONAL MISSOURI 4-HERS BLAZING HIS OWN TRAIL INSPITE OF LIFE'S CHALLENGES.
AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE, LONG LASTING CHEVY SILVERADO AND BY MYCOGEN SEEDS.
VISIT ACRES OF POSSIBILITY DOT COM TO DISCOVER
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS.
CALIFORNIA NOW HAS THE TOUGHEST ANTIBIOTIC LAW IN THE LAND.
THE GOVERNOR SIGNING SB-27 OVER THE WEEKEND.
...AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.
Prescriptions for livestock measure:
BEGINNING IN JANUARY 2018, LIVESTOCK PRODUCERS ARE REQUIRED TO GET PRESCRIPTIONS FOR ANY
MEDICALLY IMPORTANT ANTIBIOTICS...OR THOSE ANTIBIOTICS ALSO CONSIDERED IMPORTANT IN HUMAN
MEDICINE.
IT ALSO HALTS THE USE OF MEDICALLY IMPORTANT ANTIIBIOTICS FOR GROWTH PROMOTION IN COWS,
CHICKENS AND PIGS.
FALLING OUTSIDE OF THE REGULATION IONOPHORES WHICH REMAIN AVAILABLE FOR ON FARM USE.
"THE ONLY ANTIBIOTIC WE USE FOR GROWTH PROMOTION ON A LARGE SCALE IS THE GROUP CALLED THE IONOPHORES. THEY'RE NOT INCLUDED IN THE MEDICALLY IMPORTANT GROUP AND THERE'S NOT EVEN A REASONABLE HYPOTHESIS THAT THEY COULD CONTRIBUTE TO ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE IN HUMANS. THEY GREATLY INCREASE OUR FEED EFFICIENCY IN THESE ANIMALS."
THE ONLY ANTIBIOTIC WE USE FOR GROWTH PROMOTION ON A LARGE SCALE IS THE GROUP CALLED
THE IONOPHORES. THEY'RE NOT INCLUDED IN THE MEDICALLY IMPORTANT GROUP AND THERE'S NOT EVEN A REASONABLE HYPOTHESIS THAT THEY COULD CONTRIBUTE TO ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE IN HUMANS.
THEY GREATLY INCREASE OUR FEED EFFICIENCY IN THESE ANIMALS.
OF THE MEDICALLY IMPORTANT ANTIBIOTICS, CALIFORNIA PRODUCERS WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO
ADMINISTER THE DRUGS WITH THE APPROVAL OF A VETERINARIAN WHEN ANIMALS ARE SICK OR TO
PREVENT INFECTIONS WHEN RISKS ARE HIGH...
ANTIBIOTICS ARE ALSO NOT ALLOWED TO BE USED IN A REGULAR PATTERN.
FARM GROUPS IN THE STATE LARGELY SUPPORTED THE MEASTURE.
Bureau of Prisons rules: No bacon in Federal Prison:
THE WASHINGTON POST REPORTING THAT THE BUREAU OF PRISONS IS CUTTING PORK FROM ALL OF ITS
FACILITIES.
THAT MEANS NO BACON, PORK CHOPS, HAM OR LINKS FOR ANY OF THE 206-THOUSAND PRISONERS IN THE
FEDERAL SYSTEM.
ACCORDING TO THE REPORT, OFFICIALS SAY SURVEY'S SHOWED INMATES DON'T CARE FOR PORK....AND PRICES ARE TOO HIGH.
THE NATIONAL PORK PRODUCERS COUNCIL IS SKEPTICAL.
DAVE WARNER WITH NPPC SAYS QUOTE, I FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE THAT A SURVEY WOULD HAVE FOUND A MAJORITY OF ANY POPULATION SAYING NO THANKS...I DON'T WANT MORE BACON.
HE'S LOOKING INTO THE DECISION.
Today, no Crop Progress:
THERE IS NO USDA CROP PROGRESS REPORT DUE TO THE COLUMBUS DAY HOLIDAY.
THAT REPORT WILL COME OUT ON TUESDAY.
OF COURSE, THAT ISN'T STOPPING WORK ACROSS THE COUNTRYSIDE.
IN MICHIGAN, LAST WEEK---JUST 9 PERCENT OF THE CORN CROP WAS IN THE BIN.
AGRONOMIST IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE STATE SAY HARVEST STARTED QUICKLY--ESPECIALLY ON
SOYBEANS, WHICH IS A THIRD CUT.
BUT PROGRESS HAS SLOWED DOWN OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS.
AS FAR AS YIEDLS GO, NITROGEN AVAILABILITY SEEMS TO BE THE BIGGEST FACTOR IN HOW WELL THE CORN CROP PRODUCED.
ON THE SOYBEAN SIDE, PRODUCTION IS VARIABLE.
"I THINK WE'LL SEE SOME DIFFERENCES BASED ON MATURITY. I THINK WE GOT DRY ENOUGH IN THIS AREA
LATE AUGUST THAT MAYBE SOME OUR LONGER MATURING BEANS MAY NOT YIELD QUITE AS GOOD AS
SOME OF OUR SHORTER MATURITY WHICH IS THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT WE TYPICALLY WOULD SEE. I THINK
WE'LL SEE A LOT OF VARIABILITY IN THAT. WE'RE CERTAINLY SEEING A LOT OF WHITE MOLD IN THE BEANS ENDED UP SHOWING UP AT HARVEST. AND THOSE SPOTS THAT GOT THE WHITE MOLD THEIR
YIELDS ARE VERY, VERY REDUCED."


BAUER SAYS RIGHT NOW IT LOOKS LIKE ALL THE CROPS ARE READY TO CUT.
SHE EXPECTS FARMERS TO GET THE SOYBEANS NOW WHILE THE WEATHER IS STILL REATIVELY NICE.
STICKING WITH THE HARVEST THEME, WE HEAD OVER TO THE AGDAY WEATHER CENTER FOR TODAY'S
CROPWATCH.
Crop Watch:
<MIKE HOFFMAN SPEAKS>
LET'S START OFF CROPWATCH IN SOUTHEAST SOUTH DAKOTA.
ERIC STEARNS SENT US THIS PHOTO OF 200 BUSHEL PER ACRE CORN IN THE AREA.
THAT'S WELL ABOVE THE 160 BUSHEL MARK USDA FORECASTED FOR THE STATE IN AUGUST.
MOVING OVER TO EASTERN IOWA..
BRENT JUDISCH SENT US THIS PHOTO OF THE SUN SETTING IN THE FIELD. HE SAYS HARVEST HAS TURNED OUT BETTER THAN HE EXPECTED. THE AREA IS SEEING 15 BUSHELS ABOVE THE APH ALONG WITH WARM, FALL WEATHER.
AND TAKING A LOOK AT THE WEATHER MAP WELL IT'S NOT GOING TO REAL WARM FOR LONG DOUBLE BARREL COLD FRONT KIND OF SWEEPING THROUGH THE CORN BELT SHOWERS IN THE GREAT LAKES WE'LL TALK ABOUT YOUR AREA.
Wotus on hold:
 THE EPA'S NEW CLEAN WATER RULE, ALSO KNOWN AS WATERS OF THE UNITED STATES, IS NOW ON HOLD
AFTER JUST OVER A MONTH OF IMPLEMENTATION.
THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE 6TH CIRUCIT STAYED THE RULE NATIONWIDE LAST WEEK.
AGDAY'S BETSY JIBBEN HAS AN UPDATE ON WHAT'S NEXT FOR THE TEMPORARY DECISION.
Betsy Jibben:
<"WE'RE IN AN AREA WITH THE KANKAKEE RIVER, THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER AND A LOT OF TRIBUTARIES. SO, WHAT ARE THE RULES?,">
THAT SEEMED TO BE A COMMON QUESTION MANY FARMERS AND RANCHERS HAD AFTER THE EPA
IMPLEMENTED THE NEW CLEAN WATER RULE IN AUGUST.
BUT LAST WEEK, THE UNITED STATES OF APPEALS FOR THE 6TH CIRCUIT STAYED THE CLEAN WATER RULE
NATION-WIDE.. MEANING THE NEW RULE APPLIES NO WHERE FOR NOW.. PUTTING SOME OF THOSE
QUESTIONS ON PAUSE.


<"HOWEVER FOR THE TIME BEING, WE HAVE A REPRIEVE FROM THE NEWLY DEFINED RULE. IN WHICH EXPANDS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT JURISDICTION OVER WOTUS SUCH AS A FARMER DIGGING A FENCE POST, REPLACING A FENCE, SPRAYING WEEDS MAY HAVE HAD TO HAVE A PERMIT UNDER THE FEDERAL WOTUS SYSTEM. THAT'S WHAT'S ON HOLD RIGHT NOW,">
<"THAT MEANS PRODUCERS FOR THE SHORT-TERM WON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE EPA KNOCKING ON THEIR DOOR TRYING TO ENFORCE THE WATERS OF THE U.S. RULE,">
IN THE MEANTIME, THE PREVIOUS RULE IS AGAIN THE LAW OF THE LAND.
<" WE GO BACK UNDER THE OLD RULE SO WE'RE SURE NORMAL FARMING PRACTICES, NORMAL FARMING ACTIVITIES ARE EXEMPT FROM PERMIT
REQUIREMENTS THAT WAS AN ISSUE,">
WHILE THE COURT CONSIDERS WHETHER IT HAS JURISDICTION TO DECIDE THE MERITS OF THE CASE.
<"WE EXPECT THAT TO BE DONE IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS. THEN WE'LL HAVE A RULING ON THE ACTUAL JURISDICTIONAL ASPECTS WHETHER THE COURT CAN HEAR THE CASE,">
<"IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR THE COURT TO ENTER THE STAY. THEY BELIEVE TO DO SO, MEANT THE PLAINTIFFS HAD A LIKELIHOOD TO SUCCEED WITH THE MERITS OF THEIR CLAIMS THAT PROBABLY THE ACT WAS VIOLATED BY THE EPA WHEN THEY ELONGATED THE RULE AND THAT THERE WAS AN OVERSTEPPING OF STATE BOUNDARIES HERE IN THE TERMS OF SOVEREIGNTY WITH WATER ISSUES,">
<"THIS COURT RECOGNIZED THAT THE AGENCY OVERSTEPPED THAT BOUNDARY. THEY WENT FROM BEING SOMEONE WHO PROVIDES ADMINISTRATIVE LAW INTO A CAMPAIGN TO PUT A REGULATION INTO PLACE REGARDLESS OF THE OUTCOME AND WHAT CONGRESS INTENDED,">
WHILE FARM GROUPS PRAISE THE OUTCOME.. THEY KNOW THE FIGHT IS FAR FROM OVER.
<"IT'S IMPORTANT THEY PASS LEGISLATION THAT REQUIRES EPA TO START AGAIN. TO CONSULT WITH LANDOWNERS, BUSINESSES AND COUNTIES. THEY GOTTA GET THIS RULE RIGHT,">
THTA'S JUST WHAT FARMRES AND RANCHERS SAY THEY'RE FOR.. A CLEAR RULE THAT WON'T LEAVE THEM
WITH SO MANY QUESTIONS...
<WE HAVE A LOT OF FARMS WITH CREEKS RUNNING THROUGH THEM. SO WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO REGULATE? WHAT IS GOING TO BE THE REGULATION? 32>
REPORTING FOR AGDAY, I'M BETSY JIBBEN.
Teaser:
WELL UP NEXT I'M HEADED OVER TO THE AGRIBUSINESS DESK TO LOOK AT WHEAT AND WHY ANALYST THINKS THERE'S REASON TO BE PRICE POSITIVE.
AND LATER, MEET A MISSOURI BOY WHO'S DECIDING LIFE DOESN'T HAVE TO BE ABOUT LIMITS...IN OR OUT OF THE SHOWRING.
HIS INSPIRING PERSPECTIVE TODAY ON IN THE COUNTRY.

COMPLEX AGRIBUSINESS ENVIRONMENT)
CME:
AND NOW LET'S SEE HOW THE MARKETS STARTED THE WEEK. AND FOR THAT, WE HEAD TO THE CME FLOOR IN CHICAGO.
STILL DIGESTING FRIDAY'S REPORT. I THINK THE BIGGEST SURPRISE WAS THAT BEANS WERE A NICKEL
TO 6 CENTS HIGHER. IT LOOKS LIKE NOVEMBER BEANS, WILL TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT 9 DOLLARS. WE DID NOT GET THE 9 DOLLAR PRINT. CORN AND WHEAT KIND OF A QUIET DAY. REMEMBER TODAY IS COLUMBUS TODAY.
THE BANKS ARE CLOSED. A LOT OF PEOPLE AREN'T EVEN INTO MARKETS. THINGS TO FOCUS ON, THAT THE
USDA REPORT WAS KIND OF NEUTRAL TO BEARISH FOR EVERYTHING EXCEPT FOR SOYBEANS. SOYBEANS LOST ABOUT A MILLION ACRES OF PLANTED ACREAGE. THAT WAS THE ONE BIG THING. THAT CAUGHT A LOT OF PEOPLE'S ATTENTION. KIND OF A GOOD MOVE TODAY IN FAT CATTLE AND FEEDER CATTLE. ONE TRADED UP TO NEW ONE MONTH HIGHS. WE'VE BACKED OFF A LITTLE BIT. HOGS HOLDING IN THERE PRETTY GOOD. THAT'S 67 LEVEL. A LOT OF GUYS ARE WONDERING IF WE CAN GO UP AND TAKE A LOOK AT 70 CENTS. WE HAVE NOT HAVE A LOT OF GOOD DEMAND STEP IN FOR ANY OF THESE MARKETS. THAT'S FOR CATTLE OR FOR HOGS. BUT I THINK TO START THE WEEK OFF WITH ONE MONTH HIGHS AND FEEDER CATTLE AND FATS. THAT'S GOT TO BE A PLUS. FROM THE FLOOR OF THE CME, THIS IS CHRIS ROBINSON. HAVE A GREAT DAY.
AgriBusiness:
HERE AT THE AGRIBUSINESS DESK, KEVIN DULING, KD INVESTORS.
KEVIN, YOU ARE KIND OF A WHEAT GUY, HAIL FROM THE NORTHWEST PART OF THE COUNTRY, LOTS OF WHEAT GROWING OUT THERE. YOU WATCH THAT MARKET REALLY CLOSE. WHAT'S ON YOUR RADAR?>> THERE'S A LOT GOING ON IN THE WHEAT WORLD THAT'S UNDER THE RADAR SO FAR. MY RADAR THE THINGS THAT ARE JUMPING OFF THE PAGE ONE, WE HAVE GOT...IF YOU LOOK AT LAST WEEK'S USDA REPORT THEY HAVE GOT ALL THE CARRY OUT OR HALF THE CARRY OUT IN THE WORLD IS IN CHINA--OVER 40 PERCENT.
CHINA'S NOT GOING TO EXPORT THAT EVER, SO IF YOU DELETE CHINA AS ITSELF FROM THE BALANCE SHEET AND YOU LOOK, ONCE THE BLACK SEA LOW ON SUPPLIES, WHICH THEY WILL. THEY CAN'T SUPPLY THE WORLD, IT'S GOING TO GET SIGNIFICANTLY TIGHTER. IN FACT, IF YOU DELETE THE
CHINESE EQUATION, WE ARE ONLY A HANDFUL OF DAYS LOOSER THAN WE WERE IN 2007,8, WHEN WE HAD OUR BIG MASSIVE RUN. AND SO IT'S A KIND OF A SLEEPER--NOBODY PAYS ATTENTION TO THAT AND THEN YOU ADD IN PROBLEMS WITH RICE. I MEAN THE RICE MARKET HAS BEEN ON FIRE LATELY. IT'S IN THE SAME SITUATION AND SO IF THERE ISN'T ENOUGH RICE THEY SWITCH TO WHEAT, SO THERE'S GOING TO BE MORE DEMAND THAN PEOPLE THINK. YOU'VE GOT THE HEDGE FUND SHORT, YOU HAVE GOT A LOT OF CURRENT PROBLEMS, SO TO ME WHEAT IS AN OWNERSHIP-YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE IT.>> SO YOU ARE ACTUALLY PRETTY POSITIVE. YOU THINK THAT THERE IS SOME GOOD NEWS OUT THERE FOR WHEAT GUYS.>>YEAH, I THINK WHEAT'S GOING TO BE SURPRISING, SO WHAT I'M TELLING THE GROUP IS SAYING OK, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE GOT TO KEEP THE CASH FLOW AND THE BANKERS HAPPY, SO IF IT DOESN'T HAPPEN IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS WE WILL SELL SOME ON SOME HIGH POINTS, TAKE SOME MONEY KEEP THE BANKER HAPPY, BUT THEN BUY THAT BACK. I WANT TO STAY LONG FOR THE NEXT 18 MONTHS OR SO, BECAUSE IT'S ...WE HAVE BEEN DOWN HERE FOR A WHILE, IT'S BELOW THE COST OF PRODUCTION AND YOU KNOW WE ARE NOT REALLY EVEN ADDING IN ALL THE PROBLEMS AROUND THE GLOBE RIGHT NOW. THE '16 PROBLEM. >> ALL RIGHT, WELL GOOD POSITIVE NEWS, MAYBE, POSSIBLY, POTENTIALLY THERE FOR WHEAT GROWERS OUT THERE, I THINK THEY WILL TAKE IT. >> I THINK SO TOO. >>
ALL RIGHT, THANKS KEVIN. WE WILL BE BACK WITH MORE AGDAY IN JUST A FEW MINUTES.

National weather:
WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY, WE FINALLY FOUND MIKE HOFFMAN. MIKE, WELCOME BACK. GLAD TO HAVE YOU HERE. DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THERE'S A WHOLE LOT GOING ON HERE ON THE WEATHER MAP THOUGH. NO THERE ISN'T THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY. SHOWERS IN THE GREAT LAKES BUT THE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IN THE PACIFIC MAY BRING SOME RAIN INTO CALIFORNIA. LET'S PUT THE MAPS INTO MOTION. AND AS YOU CAN SEE THAT FIRST COLD FRONT WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH TOWARDS THE GULF OF MEXICO INTO NORTHERN MEXICO. BY THE WAY THAT'S WHERE I WAS LAST WEEK TO SOUTHERN MEXICO ON A MISSION TRIP. I'VE BEEN THERE 6 TIMES AND IT WAS ANOTHER WONDERFUL WEEK. FOR US, WE ARE SEEING COOLER WEATHER. IT'S HOT DOWN THERE. COOLER BEHIND THE FIRST FRONT. CHILLIER BEHIND THE SECONDARY FRONT. THAT'S ALREADY INTO NORTHERN IOWA BY LATER TODAY. CENTRAL PORTIONS OF THE GREAT LAKES AND THAT WILL CAUSE SOME SCATTERED SHOWERS THERE. NOT A LOT OF MOISTURE ALONG EITHER ONE OF THESE FRONTS AS YOU CAN SEE. AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IN THE PACIFIC OCEAN IS BARELY MOVING OFF TO THE NORTHEAST BUT AS IT STARTS TO MOVE THIS WAY, WE'LL BEGIN TO SEE MORE MOISTURE COMING IN LATER IN THE DAY TOMORROW. YOU WILL SEE THAT IN THE WEATHER MAPS. OTHERWISE, HIGH PRESSURE REALLY DOMINATING THE PLAINS STATES AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE NORTHERN PLAINS INTO THE SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI VALLEY. BUT THERE THOSE SHOWERS STARTING TO SHOW UP AHEAD OF THIS AREA OS LOW PRESSURE. WE'LL HAVE TO WATCH THAT AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE LATTER PARTS OF THE WEEK. SEE IF YOU CAN BRING MORE SUBSTANTIAL RAIN INTO PARTS OF THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. THAT'S JUST A CHANCE AT THIS POINT. THERE'S THE PRECIPITATION ESTIMATES OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS. VERY LITTLE. MOST OF WHAT HAS FALLEN HAS BEEN A TENTH OF AN INCH. MAYBE A QUARTER OF AN INCH IN SPOTS. ADDING ON THE NEXT 36 HOURS. YOU CAN SEE THE MAJORITY OF IT IS GOING TO BE ADDED TO THE FAR NORTHEAST. EVEN THOSE AREAS WON'T GET A WHOLE LOT. NOT A LOT OF MOISTURE TO SPEAK OF OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS OR SO ACROSS THE COUNTRY. HIGH TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON IN THE 80S INTO WESTERN KANSAS SOUTHWARD. 50S AND 60S FROM THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES INTO THE OHIO VALLEY, PARTS OF THE NORTHEAST. LOW TEMPERATURES TONIGHT WILL DROP OFF PRETTY GOOD ACROSS A GOOD CHUNK OF THE CORN BELT. LOTS OF 40S SHOWING UP. MAYBE LOW 50S IF YOU LIVE IN THE SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE CORN BELT. YOU CAN EVEN SEE MID-60S IN THE GULF OF MEXICO. THE HIGH TEMPERATURES TOMORROW AFTERNOON ARE ON THE PLEASANT SIDE. PLEASANTLY MILD AS WE LOOK AT THE SOUTHERN PLAINS STATES. BUT ON THE COOLER SIDE, ALTHOUGH THAT'S TYPICAL FOR THE NORTHERN PLAINS, GREAT LAKES, OHIO VALLEY. AND THE NORTHEAST. TAKE A LOOK AT THE JET STREAM. IT'S ALL BEING CAUSED BY THIS TROUGH MOVING IN. THEN IT GETS REINFORCED A LITTLE BIT BEFORE IT BEGINS TO FLATTEN OUT A LITTLE BIT INTO MORE OF A ZONAL FLOW. THERE WILL BE RIPPLES FROM WEST TO EAST AS YOU CAN SEE. BY EARLY NEXT WEEK, OUR COMPUTER MODEL SHOWING A TROUGH IN THE WEST AND A RIDGE IN THE EAST.
Regional weather:
 THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY, NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS. WE'LL HEAD TO PUEBLO, COLORADO, FIRST OF ALL, SUNNY AND WARMER WITH A HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 86 DEGREES. BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS IS SUNNY AND COOLER, HIGH TEMPERATURE IS 77. AND CARIBOU, MAINE IS MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH A FEW SCATTERED SHOWERS. IT'S ON THE COOL SIDE. THE HIGH IS AROUND 62.

Teaser:
UP NEXT OUR DAIRY TODAY REPORT, LOOKS AT PRICE PROJECTIONS FOR THE UPCOMMING YEAR FROM USDA.

USDA price projections:
FROM THE LATEST WASDE REPORT, USDA UPPED ITS ESTIMATE OF THE 2015 ALL-MILK PRICE BY A NICKLE.
ESIMATING THE PRICE WILL AVERAGE $16.90 TO $17 PER HUNDRED FOR THE YEAR. THE AGENCY DID LOWER ITS ALL-MILK PRICE UNDER 17 DOLLARS FOR 2016.
MUCH OF THAT BASED ON PRODUCTION. NEXT YEAR, PRODUCTION IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE ABOUT 5 BILLION POUNDS. THIS YEAR'S MILK FORECAST REMAINS UNCHANGED.
ON BUTTER, THE PRICE IS UNCHANGED FOR 2015 AND EXPECTED TO RISE IN 2016.
CHEESE PRICES WERE RAISED FOR 15' AND '16 THANKS TO HIGH DOMESTIC DEMAND.
MUCH OF CALIFORNIA REMAINS UNDER SEVERE TO EXCEPTIONAL DROUGHT, BUT DAIRY INDUSTRY LEADERS SAY SO FAR, THE STATE'S HERD NUMBERS HAVE SEEN LIMITED IMPACT.
USDA'S JULY FIRST CATTLE INVENTORY REPORT SAYS OVERALL, MILK COWS WERE UP ONE PERCENT FROM
JULY 2014.
AND WHILE CALIFORNIA'S NUMBERS HAVE DECLINED SOME, DAIRY TODAY'S JIM DICKRELL SAYS LOWER
PRODUCTION IN THE STATE IS NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO FEWER COWS.
HE SAYS EXPENSIVE FEED COSTS ARE HAVING THE BIGGER IMPACT ON LOWER MILK SUPPLIES FROM
CALIFORNIA.
<"THEIR COW NUMBERS ACTUALLY HAVEN'T SUFFERED THAT GREATLY. THEY'RE ONLY DOWN ABOUT AH-THOUSAND OR 2,000 COWS FROM YEAR EARLIER NUMBERS. THE REAL IMPACT HAS BEEN ON MILK PER
COW AND THEY HAVE BEEN DOWN IN PRODUCTION EVERY MONTH IN 2015 AND I THINK IT ACTUALLY STARTED LAST DECEMBER,">
THIS SUMMER CALIFORNIA COWS LOST THEIR TITLE AS TOP PRODUCERS---FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1958,
WISCONSIN COWS OUT PRODUCING GOLDEN STATE HERDS ON A MILK PER COW BASIS.
WHEN WE COME BACK, BE PREPARED TO BE INSPIRED BY A YOUNG MAN FROM MISSOURI WHO'S TAKING LIFE BY THE LEASH AND LEADING A LIFE WITHOUT LIMITS.

Jon Lamb: Missouri teen with special needs empowered by 4-H:
THE TERM DISABLED SUGGESTS LIMITS TO WHAT A PERSON CAN ACCOMPLISH.
RILEY TADE IS ONE 16 YEAR OLD FROM ASHLAND, MO. WHO REFUSES TO LET HIS DISABILITIES GET IN THE WAY OF HIS DREAMS.
AND THANKS TO TENACITY AND ENCOURAGEMENT FROM FAMILY THIS 4-HER IS LIVING A LIFE WITHOUT
LIMITS. JON LAMB WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI EXTENSION REPORTS.
RILEY TADE WAS BORN WITH A LOVE OF FARMING. HE WAS ALSO BORN WITH CEREBRAL PALSY.
THE DISEASE CAUSES HIM MIGRAINE HEADACHES AND AFFECTS HIS MOTORSKILLS.
HE OFTEN RELIES ON A WALKER. IN SPITE OF THESE CHALLENGES, THERE IS NOTHING HE WOULD RATHER
DO THAN RAISE AND SHOW CHAMPION GOATS.
YOU KNOW RILEY STARTED WORKING WITH HIS GOATS THAT HE'S SHOWIN RIGHT NOW LAST DECEMBER. WHAT PEOPLE DON'T SEE IS HOW HARD AND HOW MUCH WORK ETHIC THE KIDS DEVELOP, YOU KNOW FROM THEIR PROJECTS.
THE MONTHS RILEY HAS SPENT FEEDING, GROOMING AND TRAINING HIS GOATS HAS PAID OFF, WITH
CHAMPIONSHIPS, AND AN INCREASED SENSE OF SELF CONFIDENCE AND INDEPENDENCE.
RILEY'S DAD MODIFIED HIS WALKER TO ENABLE HIM TO LEAD HIS GOATS IN THE SHOW RING.
HE ALSO RECEIVES SUPPORT FROM HIS LOCAL 4-H CLUB.
4-H HAS HELPED RILEY'S CONFIDENCE BY GIVING HIM LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES. IT'S ALSO SURROUNDED HIM WITH PEERS THAT ARE ENCOURAGING, AND WILLING TO HELP, EVEN WHEN THEY'RE IN
COMPETITION WITH HIM.
RILEY IS AMONG A GROWING NUMBER OF KIDS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS WHO ARE DRAWN TO 4-H BY THE WIDE VARIETY OF PROJECTS OFFERED. FINDING THE RIGHT ONE IS KEY TO EACH CHILD'S SUCCESS.
PATTY FISHER 4-H YOUTH DEVELOPMENT SPECIALIST YOUTH WITH SPECIAL NEEDS BECOME A PART OF THE PROGRAM. THEY PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM. WE EMPOWER THEM TO HAVE THE SAME LEADERSHIP SKILLS. WE EMPOWER THEM TO TAKE ON ROLES JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER 4H MEMBER. THEY ARE NOT ANY DIFFERENT."
WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM FAMILY AND SOME SPECIAL FRIENDS, RILEY IS ACQUIRING THE CONFIDENCE AND
SKILLS THAT WILL PREPARE HIM FOR A MORE INDEPENDENT FUTURE IN AGRICULTURE.
HE REALLY DOESN'T VIEW HIMSELF AS HAVING SPECIAL NEEDS, SO THERE'S REALLY NOTHING THAT HE DOESN'T THINK HE CAN DO. HIS CONFIDENCE, HIS SELF-CONFIDENCE IS PROBABLY HIS BIGGEST STRENGTH.
FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI, I'M JON LAMB.
THANKS JON.

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