TODAY ON AGDAY -A LEADING FOOD PRODUCING STATE
PUTS GLYPHOSATE IN ITS BULLSEYE.
DETAILS FROM CALIFORNIA.
I'M CHUCK DENNEY. THE DISPPEARING HONEY BEE.
COULD AGRICULTURAL PESTICIDES BE A
FACTOR?...THAT STORY COMING UP ON AGDAY.
IN AGRIBUSINESS...ANALYZING THE LONG-TERM CATTLE
"What we think the chart's telling us is that there is so much substitution that that beef, pork spread is going to collapse."
AND A WISCONSIN FARM TAKES ITS PRODUCTS FROM
'GATE' TO 'PLATE' IN THE DAIRY 'STATE.'
AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE, LONG
GOOD MORNING I'M BETSY JIBBEN IN FOR CLINTON
CALIFORNIA'S STATE EPA OFFICE WANTS TO LABEL
GLYPHOSATE AS A CARCINOGEN.
THAT'S SPARKING A DEBATE WITH THE AG COMMUNITY
THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA SAYS IT INTENDS TO LIST
GLYFOSATE AND THREE OTHER CHEMICALS TO A LIST
OF CARCINAGENS UNDER THE STATE'S PROPOSITION 65
THE FOUR WOULD JOIN THE LIST OF POSSIBLE CANCERCAUSING
AGENTS UNDER THE STATE'S SAFE DRINKING
THIS ALL COMES AFTER THE INTERNATIONAL AGENCY
FOR RESEARCH ON CANCER, KNOWN AS IARC,
CLASSIFIED GLYPHOSATE AS 'PROBABLY
CARCINOGENIC' TO HUMANS BACK IN MARCH.
MONSANTO FIRES BACK STATING, "REGULATORY
AGENCIES HAVE ALREADY REVIEWED ALL THE KEY
STUDIES EXAMINED BY IARC" AND DISPUTE THOSE
AND MANY MORE AND ARRIVED AT THE
OVERWHELMING CONSENSUS THAT GLYPHOSATE
POSES NO UNREASONABLE RISKS TO HUMANS OR THE
ENVIRONMENT WHEN USED ACCORDING TO LABEL
"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.
Glyfosate 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 our
CALIFORNIA'S VERSION OF E-P-A SAYS IT HAS OPENED A
30-DAY COMMENT PERIOD ON WHETHER TO LIST
GLYPHOSATE. IF IT 'DOES' GET ADDED TO THE LIST,
THERE WOULD BE A SECOND COMMENT PERIOD.
THE AGENCY SAYS IT CANNOT CONDUCT ITS OWN
INDEPENDENT EVALUATIONS. BUT IT SAYS I-ARC'S
STUDY IS SUFFICIENT TO TRIGGER A COMMENT PERIOD.
HONEYBEES HAVE BEEN DYING OFF FOR THE PAST TWO
DECADES, AND IT IMPACTS HUMANS AND OUR FOOD
SUPPLY. RESEARCHERS WITH UT'S INSTITUTE OF
AGRICULTURE ARE EXPLORING REASONS FOR THE BEE
DECLINE, INCLUDING HOW AGRICULTURAL PESTICIDES
MIGHT AFFECT THESE INSECTS. IN THIS REPORT FROM
THE UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE CHUCK DENNEY HAS
MORE ON A FIELD STUDY WHERE BEES AND CROPS ARE
ESPECIALLY NOW WE ARE FOCUSING ON THE DECLINE
OF THE HONEYBEE POPULATION. DR. MOHAMED
ALBURAKI HANDLES HIS TEST SUBJECTS WITH GENTLE
CARE. HE'S AT THE UT INSTITUTE OF AGRICULTURE'S
WEST TENNESSEE AGRESEARCH CENTER, WHERE A
BOOMING BEE POPULATION IS SITUATED FEET AWAY
FROM TALL CORN. CORN, SOYBEANS AND COTTON
DON'T NEED BEES FOR POLLINATION. HOWEVER, A
CONCERN IS THE IMPACT PESTICIDES SPRAYED ON
CROPS MIGHT HAVE ON BEES WHO TEND TO FORAGE IN
AGRICULTURAL FIELDS. -(DR. MOHAMED ALBURAKI) WE
ARE MONITORING THE LEVEL IN THE CONTEXT OF FOUR
DIFFERENT LOCATIONS -HIGH AG AREA, MID AG AREA,
NON AG AREA, AND ANOTHER LOCATION, VERY HIGH AG
AREA. BEES DEFINITELY POLLINATE TENNESSEE CROPS
SUCH AS FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, VALUED AT MORE
THAN 100 MILLION DOLLARS EACH YEAR. AND
NATIONALLY, THAT FIGURE IS MORE THAN 14 BILLION
DOLLARS. IF THESE HELPFUL INSECTS CONTINUE TO
DISAPPEAR, IT'S GOING TO HAVE AN IMPACT ON OUR
FOOD SUPPLY. DR. SCOTT STEWART IS WORKING WITH
ALBURAKI IN THE BEE EXPERIMENT. HE SAYS THERE'S
SOME MISINFORMATION REGARDING BEES AND
PESTICIDES, AND THAT CHEMICALS COULD BE ONE OF
SEVERAL FACTORS CAUSING AN INSECT DECLINE. BEE
HEALTH IS VERY COMPLICATED. THERE'S A LOT OF
INTERACTING FACTORS -VARROA MITES, WEATHER,
FORAGE AVAILABILITY AND PESTICIDES. ONE PESTICIDE
COMMONLY USED IN FIELDS IS DRAWING THE
ATTENTION OF UTIA FACULTY AS THEY STUDY BEES.
THE PESTICIDE THAT GETS THE MOST ATTENTION, OR
THE CLASS OF PESTICIDE THAT GETS THE MOST
ATTENTION ARE THE NEONICOTINOIDS, AND THAT'S THE
ONE ANYBODY WHO GOES OUT AND GOOGLES 'BEE
HEALTH' THEY'RE GOING TO STUMBLE ACROSS, AND SO
THAT'S REALLY ONE OF THE FOCAL CLASSES OF
CHEMISTRY WE'RE LOOKING FOR IN OUR EXPERIMENT.
THERE'S A COMPLEX RELATIONSHIP THAT NEEDS TO BE
WORKED OUT BETWEEN BEES AND ROW CROP
AGRICULTURE. IT'S HOPED ANSWERS MIGHT COME
FROM THIS JACKSON FIELD, AND WE'LL FIND A WAY TO
BOTH GROW OUR FOOD AND KEEP BEES HEALTHY. THIS
IS CHUCK DENNEY REPORTING.
JUST BEFORE THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND, A federal judge in
North Dakota CLARIFIED HIS TEMPORARY INJUNCTION
THAT BLOCKS E-P-A FROM IMPLEMENTING ITS
REVISIONS TO THE CLEAN WATER ACT. DISTRICT
JUDGE RALPH ERICKSON SAYS HIS RULING DOES 'NOT'
APPLY NATIONWIDE, ONLY TO THE 13 STATES INVOLVED
IN HIS INITIAL RULEING.
ERICKSON SAYS BECAUSE THERE ARE COMPETING
JUDICIAL RULINGS, HE DECLINED TO EXTEND THE
INJUNCTION BEYOND THE STATES IN THE ORIGINAL
E-P-A SAYS THE REVISED 'WATERS OF THE U-S" RULE
ARE NOW IN EFFECT IN THE OTHER 37 STATES NOT
COVERED BY THE RULING.
TURNING TO THE CROP PROGRESS REPORT -CORN
RATINGS ARE UNCHANGED FROM LAST WEEK WITH 68PERCENT
GOOD TO EXCELLENT.
20-PERCENT IS MATURE, WHICH IS SIX POINTS BEHIND
AND THREE QUARTERS IS DENTED.
SOYBEANS ARE ALSO UNCHANGED WITH 63-PERCENT
GOOD TO EXCELLENT.
18-PERCENT ARE DROPPING LEAVES. AND NEARLY ALL
OF THE CROP HAS SET THEIR PODS.
THE COTTON CONDITION DROPPED A POINT FROM LAST
WEEK WITH 53-PERCENT GOOD TO EXCELLENT. ABOUT A
THIRD OF CROP IS OPENING ITS BOLLS.
AND IN THE WHEAT CYCLE.....WINTER WHEAT PLANTING
IS NOW UNDERWAY. JUST THREE PERCENT IS SEEDED.
AND ONLY A HANDFUL OF STATES HAVE SEED IN THE
GROUND. COLORADO LEADS THE CATEGORY WITH 13
SEVERAL OF THE MAJOR WEATHER FORECASTING
AGENCIES AND OFFICES PREDICTED A RATHER MILD
HURRICANE SEASON THIS YEAR. AND SO FAR, THEY'VE
NOW A NEW STUDY QUESTIONS WHETHER THIS IS THE
BEGINNING OF A CYCLE OF A QUIETER HURRICANE
SEASONS IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN.
THE STUDY IS PUBLISHED IN THE JOURNAL OF NATURE
GEO-SCIENCE. THE RESEARCHERS SAY THE ATLANTIC
LOOKS LIKE IT'S ENTERING A NEW QUIETER CYCLE OF
STORM ACTIVITY, LIKE WHAT WE SAW IN THE 1970S AND
THE SCIENTISTS SAY THEY'RE SEEING A LOCALIZED
COOLING AND SA-LIN-ITY LEVEL DROP IN THE NORTH
ATLANTIC NEAR GREENLAND.
BASED ON DATA BACK INTO THE 1800'S, THEY SAY
THESE CYCLES USUALLY RUN ABOUT 25 YEARS.
FROM BREATH-TAKING VIEWS IN WYOMING TO SQAUSH
HARVEST IN CANADA,
MIKE HOFFMAN HAS AN UPDATE IN THIS MORNING'S
LET'S START OFF CROPWATCH IN ONTARIO.
ANDY PASZTOR IS STARTING PEPER SQUASH HARVEST
HE SAYS CONDITIONS ARE EXTRMELY DRY, BUT THAT'S
A GOOD SITUATION TO BE IN.
CONTINUING ON TO THE SOUTHERN BORDER OF
DENA REIFF SENT US THIS SCENIC VIEW OF THE
MEDICINE BOW NATIONAL FOREST.
WHAT A VIEW!
NOW TAKING A LOOK AT THE WEATHER MAP YOU CAN SEE A PRETTY STRONG COLD FRONT MOVING THROUGH THE EASTERN GREAT LAKES DOWN INTO THE SOUTHERN PLAINS WITH SHOWERS AND THUNDER STORMS ALL ALONG THE FRONT WE'LL HAVE YOUR FORECAST COMING UP IN JUST A FEW MINUTES
AS AGDAY CONTINUES ON THIS WEDNESDAY MORNING,
WE'LL BE LOOKING AT THE LONG-TERM CHARTS FOR
CATTLE MARKETS. ALAN BROO-GLER IS OUR GUEST AT
THE AGRIBUSINESS DESK.
AND WE'LL VISIT A NEW EATERY IN THE DAIRY STATE
WHICH PRIDES ITSELF ON ITS "OLD STYLE" décor AND
FARM TO FORK MENU.
<AGDAY -BROUGHT TO YOU BY STRATEGO YIELD
FUNGICIDE FROM BAYER. OFFICIAL FUNGICIDE OF the
YIELD BUMP. STRATEGO YIELD-HEALTHY FIELDS..
ON THE FIRST DAY BACK AFTER A LONG HOLIDAY
WEEKEND, LET'S CHECK ON TUESDAY'S GRAIN ACTION.
FOR DETAILS, WE HEAD TO THE C-M-E FLOOR IN
TUESDAY'S GRAIN SAW A LITTLE BIT MORE OF WHAT I CALL A RELIEF RALLY, A MARKET THAT DIDN'T GET DESTROYED OVER THE WEEKEND. OF COURSE, WE SAW A LITTLE BIT OF A RALLY TODAY. I THINK THE RALLY IS HERE TO STAY ALTHOUGH WE HAVE THE CROP REPORT ON FRIDAY, I THINK THAT THE LOWS ARE IN HERE. WE COULD PROBABLY TOUCH A LITTLE BIT LOWER. CERTAINLY, A LITTLE MOVE ON THE DOWN-SIDE, I WOULD BE A BUYER. AGAIN, IF WE LOOK AT THE OVERALL PICTURE, WE HAVE ALL THE BAD NEWS IN. WE'RE NOT GOING TO GO ON A RIDE TO THE UPSIDE, BUT ANY NEWS THAT CAN COME OUT NOW, I THINK IT ONLY IMPACTS THE MARKETS POSITIVELY AND GIVE US A RALLY. TUESDAY'S LIVESTOCK, WOW WHAT A BOUNCE WE HAD. AGAIN, WE HAD MORE OF A RELIEF BASED RALLY BASED THAT THE WORLD DIDN'T COLLAPSE WITH CHINA WHEN THEY WERE OPEN TWO DAYS WHEN WE WERE OPEN ONE. I THINK THERE'S FEAR WITH THE END OF THE WEEK. YOU CAN SEE WITH JULY, WE ARE TRENDING LOWER. EACH TIME WE COME DOWN, WE MAKE A LOWER LOW AND A LOWER HIGH. I THINK YOU WANT TO LOOK AT CATTLE TO BE A SELLER OF 1.43 TO 1.44 IN LIVE AND 2 TO 2.02. LOOK FOR SIGNIFICANTLY PRICES WORKING THEIR WAY DOWN. THIS IS TODD HOROWITZ FROM BUBBATRADING.COM COMING FROM THE FLOOR OF THE CME GROUP IN CHICAGO.
Well, we are here now with Alan Brugler, Bruggler Marketing.
We're going to talk about this cattle market. Ok, we are this
passed Labor Day; we are passed the peak demand season.
Are you worried about demand moving forward? Or what's the
picture for cattle?>> Well, I think we do have a problem with
substitution there's...it's pretty well known we have expanded
the hog production, since we have kind of worked passed the
PED issue. The poultry folks have expanded. Now we are
getting into this post Labor Day period, we see what the retail
clearness were. Uh, we do know cattle numbers are going to be
fairly tight here in September and October as far as what's
coming out of the feedlots, so if there's anything firmness to the
pork market, to the chicken market, then I think we do get a
bounce in the cattle. It's going to depend on what the box beef
does and what the packer can afford to pay for the
cattle.>>Alan, I know you have been paying close attention to
the long term cattle chart, what does that tell us?>>The long
term chart, the weekly chart in particular has a thing called a
head and shoulders top on it. It projects that eventually we will
go down to $125. That's pretty far down when we are trading the
140s right now. It doesn't give you a time frame for that to
happen. We are thinking probably early 2016 is the most likely
timing. What we think the chart's telling us is that there is so
much substitution that that beef, pork spread is going to
collapse and eventually cattle are going to have to be a little
lower.>> Alan, you talked about the pork situation, I mean we
are seeing China cull all these head, at the same time Smith
Fields says exports are up like 45 percent to China, so we are
seeing that export market pick up. Does that continue into the
rest of 2015 into 2016.>> Well, there's definitely some
opportunity there because they have had such a severe culling
program, they would prefer that the hog producer use all that
corn that $9 corn that they got over there. In fact, they are
rigging subsidies to make that happens. The thing that we have
to remember is that Smith Field and their parent company are
pretty much the only suppliers out of the U.S. that can
guarantee non-rack dopamine hogs. China does not permit pork
from the U.S. if it has been exposed to any rack-dopamine, so
there sales may be up 45 percent but it's difficult for some of the
other firms to get into that market.>> That's a really good point.
Thank you so much, Al. All right stay with us we have much
more on AgDay, when we come back.)

WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY WITH METEOROLOGIST MIKE
HOFFMAN. MIKE, BEFORE WE GET TO WEATHER TODAY,
I HAVE TO GIVE A BIRTHDAY SHOUT-OUT TO MY DAD. HE
FARMS IN SOUTHEASTERN SOUTH DAKOTA. HAPPY
BIRTHDAY, DAD AND THANKS FOR ALWAYS WATCHING.
YOU HAVE TO TAKE YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO SAY THAT. I
KNOW. I HAVE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ME ANCHORING
TO GIVE HIM A BIRTHDAY SHOUT-OUT. BUT WHAT ARE
WE SEEING IN WEATHER NOW? A STRONG COLD-FRONT
COMING EASTWARD. THAT'S GOING TO BE A BIG-TIME
CHANGE IN THE TEMPERATURES FOR A LOT OF FOLKS.
THE LEADING EDGE OF THAT FRONT THIS MORNING IS
FRONT THE EASTERN GREAT LAKES INTO CENTRAL
INDIANA INTO NORTHERN PORTIONS OF TEXAS.
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ALL ALONG THE
FRONT. WE AREN'T EXPECTING ANY WIDE OUTBREAK OF
SEVERE WEATHER, BUT THERE COULD BE A COUPLE OF
SPOTS GET A DAMAGING WIND, FOR MOST FOLKS, IT'S
GOING TO BE A HEAVY, GUSTY THUNDERSTORM AHEAD
OF THIS FRONT. SO LET'S PUT THE MAPS INTO MOTION.
YOU CAN SEE HOW THE FRONT CONTINUES TO
PROGRESS, SLOWLY EASTWARD. IT'S MOVING ABOUT 30
MILES PER HOUR TOWARDS THE SOUTHEAST. SO THAT
WILL BRING AN END TO THE HEAT AND HUMIDTY THAT'S
IN THE SOUTHEAST TO THE FRONT. THIS IS MUCH
COOLER AIR AND THIS IS CHILLY AIR IN THE SECONDARY
FRONT. THERE WILL BE SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS POPPING UP IN THE PLAINS STATES,
BEHIND AS THIS NEXT FRONT COMES IN. YOU CAN SEE
BY TOMORROW MORNING, THAT WILL BE THE CASE. BY
THE WAY, THE TROPICAL SYSTEM OUT TO THE PACIFIC
NOT REALLY PRODUCING ANYTHING OVER THE NEXT
COUPLE OF DAYS FOR OUR SOUTHWESTERN FOLKS,
MAYBE DOWN THE ROAD, THAT'S SOMETHING WE WILL
BE WATCHING. AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE DAY
TOMORROW, THIS FIRST FRONT, ANOTHER ROUND OF
HEAVY SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS INTO THE
SOUTHEAST ALL THE WAY TO THE SHORELINE OF
TEXAS, IT LOOKS LIKE SECONDARY FRONT ALL THE WAY
INTO THE NORTHWESTERN GREAT LAKES DOWN INTO
CENTRAL KANSAS. AGAIN, THAT'S CHILLY BEHIND THAT.
THERE'S THE PRECIPITATION ESTIMATES OVER THE
PAST 24 HOURS. THE MAJORITY OF THAT IS ALONG THAT
FIRST FRONT. WE WILL ADD ON SOME MORE OVER THE
NEXT 36 HOURS. THAT SPREADS THROUGH THE
SOUTHEAST. SOME AREAS COULD GET AN INCH OR TWO
AND SOME OF THE HEAVIER DOWNPOURS BUT MOST
AREAS GETTING LESS THAN AN INCH OUT OF THAT.
VERY LITTLE MOISTURE OUT WEST AS YOU CAN SEE.
HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY, IT'S GOING TO WARM UP
IN THE WESTERN STATES BUT IT'S COOLING DOWN IN
THE CENTRAL PORTIONS OF THE COUNTRY. STILL, 80'S
IN THE CENTRAL PLAINS AND MID-ATLANTIC WITH A FEW
90S SHOWING UP IN THE FAR SOUTHEAST AND MANY
PARTS OF TEXAS. LOW TEMPERATURES TONIGHT IN THE
40S ACROSS THE NORTHERN PLAINS AND NORTHERN
GREAT LAKES. IT'S THE 50S IN THE OHIO VALLEY, WE
WILL GET RID OF SOME OF THAT HUMIDITY IN
NORTHERN DIXIE AS THAT FRONT CONTINUES TO MOVE
SOUTHWARD HIGHS TOMORROW FOR MEMPHIS AND
ATLANTA ONLY 77 DEGREES, 60S FOR THE GREAT LAKES
FOR HIGH TEMPERATURES AND THE NORTHEASTERN
PLAINS. THERE'S THE JET STREAM AND THE REASON
FOR THE COOL-DOWN IS THE TROUGH AND THEN THE
SECOND PIECE OF ENERGY DIVES IN AS WELL. IT DOES
LOOK LIKE THOUGH AS WE HEAD INTO NEXT WEEK, WE
GO INTO A RIDGE IN THE EAST AND A TROUGH IN THE
WEST. THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY, NOW
LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS. FIRST
OF ALL, FOR SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO, PLEASANT, MAYBE
A THUNDERSTORM IN THE AFTERNOON. HIGH
TEMPERATURE OF 82 DEGREES. MANKATO, MINNESOTA
IS PARTLY SUNNY AND COMFORTABLE, THE AFTERNOON
HIGH IS 75. TUSCALOOSA, ALABAMA IS WARM AND
HUMID. THE HIGH IS 89.
THANKS MIKE. STILL TO COME THE CALIFORNIA
DROUGHT IS FORCING SOME FARMERS TO TAKE THEIR
FIELDS OUT OF PRODUCTION. BUT DOES NOT APPEAR
TO BE THE CASE FOR TOMATOES.
WE'LL TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT PRODUCTION ESTIMES
WHEN AGDAY CONTINUES.
AND A WISCONSIN FARM FAMILY IS FOLLOWING THE
FOOD PRODUCTION TRAIL FROM FARM TO FORK AT
THEIR NEW RESTAURANT. WE'LL GRAB A SEAT AT "THE
CANNERY", LATER ON AGDAY.

THE STATE OF WISCONSIN HAS NUMEROUS CHEESE
OUTLETS. AND IT ALSO HAS AN IMPRESSIVE
COLLECTION OF OLD-STYLE BARNS THAT ARE STILL
STANDING TALL. NOW THE PAGEL FARM FAMILY NEAR
GREEN BAY IS PUTTING THOSE ICONIC IMAGES
TOGETHER UNDER ONE ROOF.
IN THIS VIDEO PROVIDED BY THE WISCONSIN MILK
MARKETING BOARD, WE VISIT A BRAND NEW
RESTAURANT THAT OFFERS A NEW EXPERIENCE TO
Before opening their doors to the public we got a sneak peak at
what The Cannery Public Market, Restaurant and Deli will offer
its patrons. "We wanted a casual yet elegant place, um, fairly
quick service so the customer doesn't have to wait for a long
time for their food to be made, and get them to understand
where the products are coming from that they're now going to
eat. The Pagel Farm Family has literally brought the farm to the
table by reclaiming old barn boards and beams to help build and
decorate the new facility. "This is a silo that they took down. that
was located in Kewaunee
Wisconsin, that's now here in this room. Along with a lot of the
barn boards that are in here. So you know, it's bringing that
element back and, creating that atmosphere. And that's not all.
"We're going to be bringing milk from the farm, just from our
animals, over here to be made into cheese. And the consumers,
as they shop here, will be able to watch our Master
Cheesemaker, Steve Hurd, making cheese right here at The
Cannery. Along with farm-fresh made food and cheese, The
Cannery Public Market will also offer a wide variety of Wisconsin-
made products for purchase, as well as recipe cards for simple
meals that can be prepared with ingredients sold at the market.
We try to do our best to provide healthy and wholesome
products and now people can say if they buy their beef here,
they can say I got that from Pagel's Ponderosa. Their
cheese…they have that traceability. So they know where it was
made, where it was produced. The other hope is that people
who purchase items from The Cannery Public Market will know
that the food is produced by people who care about the land
and their animals. Wisconsin cheese is made with love. It's
about what we feed the animals, it's about the way the animals
are taken care of, and the product that's produced from those
animals. And you're not going to find it like this anywhere else.
