HEADLINES
HARVEST SEASON MOVES ALONG - BUT WHERE  WILL THOSE GOLDEN BUSHELS GO?  "I'M MICHELLE ROOK. ANOTHER BIG CROP HERE IN NEBRASKA WILL STRETCH GRAIN STORAGE CAPACITY. I'LL  HAVE THE STORY FROM HUSKER HARVEST DAYS."> IN AGRIBUSINESS...TIPS FOR THE WEEK AHEAD. MACHINERY PETE IS PULLING UP SOME UNIQUE FINDS AT AUCTION. AND THIS WISCONSIN DAIRYMAN ISN'T LETTING ANYTHING STOP HIM FROM DOING  THE WORK HE LOVES. HIS INSPIRING STORY ON IN THE COUNTRY. AGDAY - PRESENTED BY CHEVY SILVERADO. HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL FOR HIGH-STRENGTH DEPENDABILITY.

STORAGE CHALLENGE FOR NEBRASKA FARMERS
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. IT'S UNUSUAL TO HAVE BACK TO BACK  YEARS OF RECORD - OR NEAR RECORD - ROW CROP PRODUCTION, BUT THAT  WILL BE THE CASE IN THE U-S. THOSE BIG CROPS LED TO LOW CASH GRAIN PRICES. SO MANY FARMERS HAVE  BEEN STORING THEIR CROP AS PART OF THEIR MARKETING PLAN...ESPECIALLY  FOR CORN.. THE PROBLEM IS NOT ENOUGH STORAGE CAPACITY FOR THE NEW CROP THIS  FALL. MICHELLE ROOK LOOKS AT THE STORAGE CHALLENGE FACING NEBRASKA  FARMERS. WITH A LARGE AMOUNT OF OLD CROP CORN STILL IN STORAGE AND ANOTHER BIG CROP COMING ON HERE  IN NEBRASKA GRAIN STORAGE WILL BE A REAL CHALLENGE FOR FARMERS THIS FALL. FARMERS DON'T EXPECT  THEY'LL TOP LAST YEAR'S STATE CORN OR SOYBEAN PRODUCTION FIGURES, BUT IT WILL BE STILL BE A BIG  HARVEST IN NEBRASKA.  GREG GREVING, CHAPMAN, NE FARMER, "I DON'T THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A  RECORD CROP, BUT IT'S GOING TO BE A GOOD CROP." ADD TO THAT THE FACT THAT MANY FARMERS HAVE  BEEN STORING THEIR 2016 CROP. DENNIS GERGENBACH, BERTRAND, NE FARMER, "PEOPLE DIDN'T LIKE  THE PRICES AND THEY DIDN'T SELL SO WE'RE GOING HAVE TWO CROPS TO LOOK AT AND ITS GOING TO BE A  CHALLENGE." RECENTLY THOUGH LARGE SUPPLIES OF OLD CROP GRAIN HAVE BEEN MOVING TO MARKET.  TONY JOHANSON, OAKLAND, NE FARMER, "I KNOW A LOT OF PRODUCERS ACROSS THIS STATE HAVE  CARRIED OVER A LOT OF GRAIN. THE LAST MONTH, MONTH IN A HALF I'VE NEVER SEEN SO MANY SEMIS ON  THE ROAD HAULING CORN AND SOYBEANS TO THE ELEVATORS."  DAVE DANNEHL, NEBRASKA BANKERS ASSOCIATION CHAIRMAN-ELECT, "THERE HAS BEEN A QUITE A BIT OF OLD CROP COMING TO TOWN THAT  UNFORTUNATELY THEY SAT ON A LITTLE LONGER THAN THEY CARED FOR." BUT WE'RE 30 DAYS AWAY FROM  HARVEST SO MANY PRODUCERS ARE LOOKING AT THEIR STORAGE NEEDS AND FINALLY DECIDED IT WAS TIME  TO GET IT SOLD AND MOVED." OTHER FARMERS HAVE BEEN SELLING BECAUSE THEY NEEDED TO EXERCISE  ON DEFERRED PRICING OR BASIS FIXED CONTRACTS BEFORE EXPIRATION OR THEY JUST NEEDED THE MONEY.  TONY, "I THINK A LOT OF IT IS CASH FLOW NEEDS. A LOT OF PRODUCERS THAT DO A CASH RENT AGREEMENT  WHERE THEY SPLIT THE PAYMENTS. YOU SAW A LOT OF SELLING ACTIVITY TOWARDS THE END OF AUGUST  WHEN THE CASH RENTS ARE DUE IN SEPTEMBER."  HOWEVER, EVEN WITH THOSE GRAIN SALES FARMERS AND ELEVATORS WILL HAVE A TOUGH TIME FINDING  SPACE FOR THE CROP THIS FALL AND WILL HAVE TO PILE ON THE GROUND. GREVING: "THERE'S A LOT OF  ELEVATORS THAT I'VE HEARD ARE NOT EVEN COMPLETELY EMPTY FROM LAST YEAR." TONY, "AS I LOOK AS  ON-FARM STORAGE IS GOING, YEAH THERE MIGHT BE ENOUGH BUT WHEN YOU START TO GET TO THESE  LOCAL ELEVATORS AND THOSE END USERS I THINK WE'RE GOING TO RUN SHORT ON STORAGE. JUST FROM THE CARRYOVER FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR AND THE LACK OF SELLING."  A FEW FARMERS ARE PUTTING UP MORE BINS YET THIS FALL, BUT MORE WILL USE TEMPORARY STORAGE AND  WAIT FOR BETTER PRICES.  DAVE, "YES, STORING AND WAITING FOR THE RALLY, WAITING FOR A RALLY. CERTAINLY, IN OUR AREA WE'VE  SEEN A LARGE INCREASE ON THE BAG STORAGE." GUY MILLS, ANSLEY, NE FARMER, "WE DO HAVE A  GOVERNMENT PROGRAM WHERE YOU CAN EVEN SEAL THE CORN YOU KNOW. IN OUR AREA ITS $1.92 PER  BUSHEL AND THEN TAKING A LOAN OUT ON IT SO THAT WILL GIVE FARMERS SOME CASH FLOW."  AND THAT  WILL HOPEFULLY KEEP THE CORN OFF THE MARKET UNTIL WE GET A BETTER PRICE." HOWEVER, LAST YEAR  MANY GROWERS STORED THE HARVEST AND WAITED FOR HIGHER PRICES WITH NO REWARD. SO, THIS  SEASON IF FARMERS ARE GOING TO STORE THE 2017 CROP THEY'RE ENCOURAGED TO PUT A MORE  AGGRESSIVE MARKETING PLAN IN PLACE. MILLS, "SO YOU REALLY HAVE TO BE ON YOUR TOES AND MARKET  IT RIGHT, GET YOUR BASIS APPRECIATION AND THEN OF COURSE GET YOUR CARRY IN THE MARKET."  DAVE, RALLIES ARE VERY SHORT-LIVED."  SO, PRODUCERS HAVE TO HAVE GOOD SOLID MARKETING PLANS  AND BE READY TO PULL THE TRIGGER IN A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME BECAUSE THEY MAY NOT HAVE A LOT OF  TIME TO MAKE THAT DECISION." IN GRAND ISLAND, NEBRASKA I'M MICHELLE ROOK REPORTING FOR  AGDAY. THANKS MICHELLE.

I-80 TEASE
ONCE AGAIN WE'LL BE FOLLOWING THE HARVEST SEASON ALONG THE  INTERSTATE 80 FROM OHIO TO NEBRASKA. BETTSY JIBBEN BEGINS HER I-80  HARVEST TOUR THIS WEDNESDAY AS WE CHECK IN WITH FARMERS IN NORTHERN INDIANA.

ARKANSAS DICAMBA BAN
AND UPDATE FROM ARKANSAS, THE ARKANSAS STATE PLANT BOARD APPROVING  REGULATORY CHANGES IN 2018 FOR IN-SEASON FOR OVER-THE-TOP USE IN  CORN, COTTON AND SOYBEANS. THE PROPOSED BAN STOPS FARMERS FROM USING ANY KIND OF DICAMBAPRODUCT, INCLUDING NEW FORMULATIONS.  THE BAN STRETCHES FROM APRIL 16 TO OCT. 31.  THE PROPOSAL STILL NEEDS TO FOLLOW THE LEGISLATIVE PROCESS UP TO THE  GOVERNOR'S DESK. AS THE STORY DEVELOPS LOOK FOR COVERAGE ON AGWEB-DOT-COM.

NAFTA TALKS
NAFTA TALKS CONTINUE TODAY IN OTTAWA CANADA. NEGOTIATORS FROM THE U- S, CANADA AND MEXICO STARTED THIS THIRD ROUND OF TALKS ON SATURDAY. FARM JOURNAL WASHINGTON CONSULTANT JIM WIESEMEYER SAYS SENSITIVE  TOPICS LIKE DISPUTE SETTLEMENT AND RULES OF ORIGIN FOR AUTOMOBILES  WILL BE PRIMARY TOPICS.

KORUS TRADE AGREEMENT
IN OTHER TRADE MATTERS, WIESEMEYER SAYS MORE LAWMAKERS ARE URGING  THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO STAY IN THE FREE TRADE AGREEMENT WITH  SOUTH KOREA. A BIPARTISAN GROUP OF HOUSE MEMBERS ARE URGING THE  PRESIDENT TO RECONSIDER THE THREAT TO TAKE THE U-S OUT OF "KORUS". FARM GROUPS SAY SOUTH KOREA IS A KEY EXPORT MARKET FOR CHEESE, PORK  AND POTATOES. WIESMEYER SAYS THE WHITE HOUSE SEEMS TO EASING THE TALK OF DUMPING  THE TRADE DEAL AS IT TRIES TO FIRM-UP SUPPORT FROM LAWMAKERS OVER TAX  REFORM.

EXPORT OPPORTUNITIES TO BRAZIL
THIS WEEK A USDA TRADE MISSION WILL BE EXPLORING AMERICAN AG EXPORT  OPPORTUNITIES IN BRAZIL.  LEADERS FROM 24 U.S. AGRIBUSINESSES AND TRADE ORGANIZATIONS ARE HEAD  THERE IN HOPES OF EXPANDING EXPORTS AND FURTHER DEVELOP BUSINESS  RELATIONSHIPS IN BRAZIL.  LAST YEAR, BRAZIL PURCHASED NEARLY $1.4 BILLION IN AGRICULTURAL AND  RELATED PRODUCTS FROM THE UNITED STATES.  TOP U.S. EXPORTS INCLUDE ETHANOL, WHEAT, PREPARED FOODS AND DAIRY  PRODUCTS. 

CHINESE BEEF BUYERS IN CHINA
A GROUP OF CHINESE BEEF BUYERS SPENT TIME IN NEBRASKA THIS WEEK.  THEY ARE THE FIRST TO VISIT SINCE THE REOPENING OF THE CHINESE BEEF  MARKET  THE TOUR WAS COORDINATED BY USDA'S FOREIGN AG SERVICE AND THE  NEBRASKA DEPARTMENT OF AG. OFFICIALS SAY THE FOCUS HAS BEEN ON COMPARING U.S. QUALITY CUTS TO  TYPICAL BEEF CHOICES IN CHINA. ITS NOW BEEN SEVERAL MONTHS SINCE BEEF MARKETS REOPENED IN CHINA.  US MEAT EXPORT FEDERATION'S JOEL HAGGARD TELLING A REPORTS THAT ITS STILL EARLY. HE SAYS SEA SHIPMENTS ARE JUST NOW STARTING TO ARRIVE. ADDING THAT VOLUMES ARE SMALL BUT MOMENTUM IS GOOD. FOLLOWING HURRICANE IRMA, SOUTHERN FLORIDA FARMERS CONTINUE TO  STRUGGLE REBUILDING AND RESTARTING THEIR OPERATIONS. 

FLORIDA SPECIALTY CROP FOUNDATION
IF YOU REMEMBER, THE HURRICANE BLEW FRUIT OFF OF THE CITRUS TREES AND  RUINED EARLY PLANTED FALL CROPS. THE FLORIDA FRUIT AND VEGETABLE ASSOCIATION SAYS FARM WORKER FAMILIES  ARE SUFFERING IN THE AFTERMATH OF IRMA.  THE STORM'S DISRUPTION OF EARLY-SEASON FARM WORK HAS LEFT MANY  JOBLESS, HOMELESS AND RUNNING OUT OF CASH.  ITS ASKING PEOPLE TO HELP OUT...BY DONATING TO THE FLORIDA SPECIALTY  CROP FOUNDATION SUPPORT PAGE ONLINE. YOU CAN FIND IT AT FLORIDA SPECIALTY CROP FOUNDATION DOT ORG. 

CROP COMMENTS
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CALLING FOR ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES  IN THE CONTIGUOUS - U.S. OVER THE LAST THREE MONTHS OF 2017.  THE SERVICE SAYING THE GREATEST CHANCE OF WARMTH COMES IN THE FOUR  CORNERS REGION BETWEEN OCTOBER AND DECEMBER.  THIS COULD MEAN AREAS TO THE EAST WILL NEED SOME SPRINGTIME RAINS TO  BE READY FOR THE SPRING PLANTING SEASON. THAT FACT MAY BE MADE WORSE BECAUSE OF DROUGHT SPREADING ACROSS  THE MIDWEST, INCLUDING KANSAS, AS WELL AS DROUGHT CONDITIONS THAT  REMAIN ACROSS PARTS OF THE NORTHERN PLAINS.  CINDI CLAWSON IS IN FOR MIKE HOFFMAN AGAIN TODAY AND SHE HAS OUR FIRST  LOOK AT FARM COUNTRY WEATHER. GOOD MORNING CLINTON. HARVEST IS HEADED TOWARD FULL SPEED TAKE A LOOK AT THESE PHOTOS FROM BETSY JIBBEN IN BOURBON INDIANA. SHE SAYS SOME SOYBEANS ARE STILL GREEN AS GRASS.  WITH LEAVES STILL INTACT. WHILE JUST DOWN THE ROAD THIS FIELD IS READY FOR THE COMBINE. THE FARMER WITH THESE MATURE BEANS TELLS BETSY HE LIKELY WON'T  HARVEST FOR ANOTHER TWO WEEKS.  MEANWHILE REGAN BRADER IN SOUTHEAST IOWA TOOK THIS PICTURE.  THEY WRAPPED HARVEST ONE NIGHT BEFORE STORMS ROLLED INTO THE AREA. THEY GOT 3.5 INCHES LAST WEEK.  SO FAR THEY'RE 10 PERCENT DONE WITH SOYBEANS BUT HAVEN'T STARTED  CORN YET.  IT'S BEEN EXTREMELY DRY IN THAT AREA UNTIL NOW. AND NOW HERE ARE SOME HOMETOWN TEMPS. 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.

TEASE
WHEN WE COME BACK, OUR ANALYSTS WILL HELP GET YOU READY FOR THE  MARKETING WEEK AHEAD. AND LATER MACHINERY PETE STOPS BY. STAY TUNED FOLKS COMING UP I'M GOING TO HIGHLIGHT SOME VERY INTERESTING TRACTOR'S FOR SALE.AND THIS WISCONSIN FARMER WON'T LET A DISABILITY GET IN THE WAY OF WHAT HE LOVES - DAIRY FARMING! HIS STORY - LATER ON AGDAY.

AGRIBUSINESS
HERE AT THE AGRIBUSINESS DESK I'VE GOT BRYAN SPLITT WITH ALLENDALE AND TOMMY GRISAFI OF  ADVANCE TRADING. ALL RIGHT GENTLEMEN LET'S KICK OFF OUR PERSPECTIVE ON THIS WEEK. BRIAN WE'LL  START WITH YOU. IF YOU SIT BACK AND LOOK AT THE WEEK AHEAD WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING. WELL WE'RE  GOING TO FINISH THE WEEK WITH SOME BIG NEWS AND THAT'S THE QUARTERLY STOCKS REPORT. RIGHT.  RIGHT. AND ESSENTIALLY YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT THIS INFORMATION IS. THE USDA EVERY MONTH  GIVES US A PROJECTION ON WHAT OUR CARRY IN OR ARE STOCKS GOING INTO THE NEW CROP WILL BE.  RIGHT. THIS NUMBER THAT WE GET ON FRIDAY IS THE EXACT NUMBER. YOU KNOW STOCKS IN ALL  POSITIONS AS OF SEPTEMBER 1ST AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MARKETING YEAR. SO THAT IS YOUR CARRY  IN NUMBER. SO WE'RE GOING TO SEE WHAT KIND OF JOB IS DONE MANAGING THIS NUMBER THROUGHOUT  THE COURSE OF THE YEAR. BUT WITH THIS REPORT OFTEN PROVIDES QUITE A BIT OF VOLATILITY. OKAY. AND  SO VOLATILITY CAN MEAN SOME YOU KNOW SOME RISK BUT IT ALSO MEANS OPPORTUNITY FOR GUYS.  YEAH TOMMY ARE YOU GOING TO BE WATCHING OUT REALLY CLOSE. YEAH I'M REALLY INTERESTED IN THE  SPRING ASPECT OF THAT. SO A LOT OF OUR GROWERS UP IN DAKOTAS AND SOUTH DAKOTA IN THERE  THEY'RE WONDERING WHERE ALL THESE ABANDONED ACRES ARE. HOW IS THAT GOING TO PLAY OUT. AND  SO. RIGHT. WE KNOW THERE'S A BAN IN ACRES. WE ALSO KNOW WE LOST SOME EXPORTS TOO SO  EVERYONE'S WONDERING WHY WHEAT ISN'T SCREAMING UP ANYMORE AND RUSSIA GREW A BIG CROP  AND THAT KIND OF OUR BULL MARKET UP THERE CAME AND WENT PRETTY FAST. BUT I'M IMPRESSED. YOU  KNOW I THINK WE COULD END THIS WEEK AND NEXT WEEK YOU'LL YOU'LL LOOK AT THE AUGUST  SEPTEMBER CROP REPORTS AND SAY WE'RE ALMOST AT THOSE LEVELS WHERE WE STARTED. SO WE KEEP  RALLYING DURING HARVEST. MAYBE WE START TO HAVE A STORY MAYBE WE HAVE SOMETHING. HEY  GUESS WHAT AMERICAN FARMER. WE PRODUCE A HUGE CROP AND YOU KNOW WHAT. THE WORLD DIDN'T END. IT FELT LIKE IT WAS AND THEN IT ALWAYS DOES UNTIL THE STRONG HANDS BITE FROM THE WEAK  HANDS. AND THEN WE START TO MOVE UP. WE'VE SEEN CRUDE OIL TRADE ABOUT 50 51. IF 50 IS THE  NEW FLOOR AND SAID THE NEW CEILING MAYBE WE HAVE A LITTLE STRUCTURE CHANGING IN THE  COMMODITY MARKETS AS A WHOLE IN ENERGY PRICES WHICH TENDS TO ISN'T CORN ENERGY AT SOME  POINT AT SOME POINT IT IS. RIGHT. AS WE LOOK AT IT. BUT ONE THING WE WERE TALKING ABOUT IS THE  BASIS IN THE SPREADS THIS YEAR MAYBE BEING AN INDICATION OF WE DO HAVE A CROP OUT THERE THAT  MIGHT STILL BE THERE. RIGHT. YOU KNOW BASIS HAS BEEN SLOPPY AND THAT'S NO SECRET. AND THE  SPREADS YOU KNOW WE'VE SEEN PREVIOUS YEARS WHERE SOYBEAN SPREADS HAVE BEEN INVERTED  BY THAT AND MAY HAVE NOVEMBER TRADING OVER JANUARY OR OVER MARCH AND SOMETIMES WE'VE  SEEN IN PREVIOUS YEARS WHERE NOVEMBER MAY BE YOU KNOW ABOVE THE JULY CONTRACT. BUT WE  THE SPREADS IN THE BASIS HAS TOLD US THERE'S PLENTY OF CROP. I LIKE THE IDEA OF OWNING SOME OF  THE SPREADS AT THESE MAJOR LEVELS. I THINK THE STORY COULD CHANGE MOVING FORWARD. ALL RIGHT GENTLEMEN. THANKS FOR GETTING STARTED THIS WEEK. WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE AGDAY IN JUST A  MINUTE. 

WEATHER
AGDAY WEATHER - BROUGHT TO YOU BY KAWASAKI AND THE NEW MULE PRO-FXR™ SIDE X  SIDE.

THEY DID GET YEAH THEY GOT A LOT OF RAIN. CHECK THIS OUT.

LET'S ZOOM IN AND  SHOW YOU WHAT'S GOING ON. AND YOU CAN SEE AS WE ZOOM IN YOU CAN SEE RIGHT THERE IN THE  SOUTHEASTERN PART OF IOWA WE'VE HAD A FAIR AMOUNT OF RAIN A LOT OF AREAS IN THAT TWO TO THREE  EVEN UP TO FOUR AND FIVE INCHES MAYBE IN SOME LOCAL SPOTS. WE'LL HAVE TO KIND OF WATCH THEN  SEE HOW THAT DOES WITH THE DROUGHT MONITOR. NOW TAKING A LOOK AT THE LATEST U.S. DROUGHT  MONITOR UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE SEEN SOME DRY CONDITIONS EXPANDING A LITTLE BIT FURTHER TO THE  EAST AND WE HAVEN'T SEEN A TON OF CHANGE UP IN PARTS OF THE NORTHERN PLAINS AND INTO THE THE  NORTHWEST ESPECIALLY OVER MONTANA. SO WE REALLY ARE GOING TO WATCH ALL OF THESE AREAS BUT  WE HAVE SEEN SOME OF THIS DRYNESS EXPANDING EVEN FURTHER EASTWARD INTO THE CENTRAL AND  NOW INTO THE EASTERN CORN BELT. HERE'S A LOOK AT THE JET STREAM. WE'RE GOING TO SEE SOME  CHANGES THIS WEEK IT'S BEEN HOT IN THE EASTERN PART OF THE COUNTRY FOR SEVERAL DAYS NOW AND A  LITTLE BIT COOLER IN THE WEST. WE'VE HAD THE STORMY WEATHER KIND OF OVER IN THE PLAINS STATES  AND IN THE UPPER MIDWEST WE'RE FINALLY GOING TO SEE A CHANGE AS WE HEAD INTO THIS WEEK.  NOW WILL STILL BE HOT AS WE HEAD INTO TUESDAY BUT WATCH AS THIS TROUGH MOVES ACROSS THE  COUNTRY AND THAT'S GOING TO START TO BRING SOME COOLER TEMPERATURES TO THE EAST AND SOME  FINALLY SOME RAIN TO SOME OF THOSE AREAS THAT REALLY COULD USE IT WHILE THAT HEAT STARTS TO  RETURN IN THE WESTERN UNITED STATES ESPECIALLY OUT WELL INTO THE WEST AND YOU GET INTO TOWN  NEVADA AND INTO CALIFORNIA. AND AS WE GET INTO SUNDAY WE CONTINUE TO SEE THAT TROUGH  AFFECTING PARTS OF THE GREAT LAKES AND INTO THE NORTHEASTERN UNITED STATES. NOW AS FOR THE  WEEK AS A WHOLE PRECIPITATION WISE IS EXPECTED TO BE BELOW NORMAL IN THE SOUTHEAST AND INTO  THOSE NORTHERN PLAINS AND INTO THE NORTHWEST. ABOVE NORMAL FOR PARTS OF THE SOUTHWEST AS WE  GET TOWARDS TEXAS AND ARIZONA ESPECIALLY AND IN THE NORTHEASTERN UNITED STATES AND THEN  TEMPERATURE WISE IT'S GOING TO BE ON THE WARM SIDE FOR MOST OF THE EAST. LITTLE BIT OF THE WEST  UP A LITTLE COOL FOR AREAS NEAR THE FOUR CORNERS REGION. NOW THE 30 DAY TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK  NOT LOOKING TOO BAD FOR A LOT OF US. A LITTLE COOL AS YOU GET TOWARDS PARTS OF THE OHIO AND  TENNESSEE VALLEY. BUT WARM OUT IN THE WEST FAIRLY NORMAL IN MOST OF THE REST OF THE COUNTRY. A  LOT OF FOLKS WATCHING THIS ONE THE PRECIPITATION LOOKS BELOW NORMAL. THAT MEANS GOOD NEWS  FOR HARVEST IN MUCH OF THE CORN BELT. THAT'S A LOOK AT YOUR NATIONAL FORECAST. NOW LET'S CHECK  ON THE WEATHER WHERE YOU LIVE. CARLAND NEVADA SUNNY AND A LITTLE WARMER FOR YOU TODAY WITH  A HIGH OF 62 DEGREES. BARKER SOUTH DAKOTA SOME SHOWERS WITH A HIGH OF 65 AND HEADING  OVER TO BEVERLY OHIO SUNNY AND HOT WITH A HIGH OF 87. 

TEASE
MACHINERY PETE IS KNOWN FOR HIS UNIQUE FINDS AT AUCTIONS ACROSS THE  MIDWEST. HE HAS A COUPLE EXAMPLES UP NEXT. AND LATER, MEET A YOUNG WISCONSIN DAIRY FARMER WHO'S WORKING HARD  TO PROTECT HIS LIVELIHOOD. HIS STORY ON IN THE COUNTRY.

MACHINERY PETE
"MACHINERY PETE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY JOHN DEERE…WHERE CAN YOU FIND THE MOST  COMPREHENSIVE INVENTORY OF JOHN DEERE CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED TRACTORS, COMBINES AND  SPRAYERS?  MACHINE FINDER-DOT-COM … SOMETIMES THE BEST NEW ADDITION TO YOUR FLEET ISN'T  NEW!"  MACHINERY PETE SEES ALL KINDS OF MACHINERY AT AUCTIONS AROUND THE  COUNTRY. THIS MORNING, HE SHARES A FEW UNIQUE FINDS. I'VE ALWAYS ENJOYED LOOKING AHEAD TO SEE WHAT'S COMING UP FOR SALE. NOW RIGHT. NOW I'VE  IDENTIFIED SOME REALLY INTERESTING TRACTORS ON THE AUCTION SIDE. HERE'S A PICTURE OF FERGUSON  TO 35. THIS IS COMING UP FOR SALE OCTOBER 4TH ON A BIG IRON DOT COM. ONLINE SALE TRACTOR'S  FROM NEBRASKA. NOW IT'S NOT IN RUNNING CONDITION BUT IT'LL BE REALLY INTERESTING TO SEE WHAT IT  GOES FOR. I'VE SEEN A LOT OF TO 35 SOLD OVER THE YEARS. NO HIGH CROPS. NOW OF COURSE THAT  MACHINERY PETE DOT COM WE DO MUCH MORE THAN JUST UPCOMING AUCTIONS. WE ALSO HAVE  100000 PIECES OF DEALER EQUIPMENT FOR SALE. SO THIS MORNING I WENT IN AND DID A SEARCH AND  USED OUR FILTERS TO SHOW TRACTORS FIVE YEARS OLD AND OLDER WITH UNDER FIVE HUNDRED HOURS. THEY  FOUND SOME REALLY INTERESTING ONES LIKE THIS 2011. JOHN DEERE 9230 FOUR WHEEL DRIVE 340 FOUR  HOURS ON IT. THIS IS FOR SALE AT P&K EQUIPMENT IN KINGFISHER OKLAHOMA. THEN THERE WAS THIS  2012 DEER 8235R ARE IN THIS THING ONLY HAS 181 HOURS ON IT. AND THIS IS FOR SALE AT AMERICAN  IMPLEMENT IN GARDEN CITY KANSAS. BUT I GOT TO TELL YOU THE MOST INTERESTING TRACTOR I FOUND  WAS THIS ONE AT 2010 MASSEY FERGUSON 8660. TWENTY EIGHT HOURS ON IT. NEVER BEEN IN THE  FIELD. AND THAT'S FOR SALE AT NORTHSTAR HARDWARE IMPLEMENT IN NORTHSTAR OHIO. SO YOU CAN  CHECK OUT THESE LISTINGS AND OTHER FOLKS AT MACHINERY PETE DOTCOM. AND REMEMBER USE OUR  SEARCH FILTERS TO NARROW DOWN TO FIND JUST WHAT YOU'RE AFTER. 

TEASE
NEXT - WE MEET A YOUNG FARMER WHO LOST A LEG TO DISEASE. BUT IT'S NOT HOLDING HIM BACK FROM DOING THE CHORES. DETAILS AS WE HEAD IN THE  COUNTRY.

IN THE COUNTRY
IN THE COUNTRY - SPONSORED BY KUBOTA.  SEE THE HARDEST WORKING  TRACTORS IN AG AT KUBOTA.COM.  OR VISIT YOUR LOCAL KUBOTA DEALER  TODAY.  DAIRY FARMING CAN BE A CHALLENGE, BUT WHEN YOU'RE BORN INTO IT, IT STAYS  IN YOUR BLOOD. TODAY WE SHINE THE SPOTLIGHT ON A YOUNG MAN WHO  DOESN'T LET ANYTHING STAND IN HIS WAY WHEN IT COMES TO DOING THE JOB  HE LOVES. WE GET DETAILS IN THIS VIDEO PROVIDED BY THE WISCONSIN MILK  MARKETING BOARD. ONE LOOK AT ADAM FAUST, AND YOU WOULD NEVER GUESS HE WAS BORN WITH SPINA BIFIDA.   ADAM FAUST, DAIRY FARMER FAUST FARMS CHILTON, WI "LIVED WITH THAT MY WHOLE LIFE, AND  ADAPTED A LOT OF THINGS TO MY BALANCE ISSUES AND MOBILITY ISSUES. AND THEN IT WOULD BE UH,  ALMOST FOUR YEARS AGO I LOST MY LEFT LEG TO UNDIAGNOSED DIABETES AND A MINOR ACCIDENT." THAT  MINOR ACCIDENT LED TO SOME MAJOR CHANGES FOR ADAM AT HIS 70-COW DAIRY IN CHILTON,  WISCONSIN. HE HAD TO LEARN TO WALK WITH A PROSTHETIC, AND WITH HELP FROM EASTER SEALS OF  WISCONSIN, ADAM WAS ABLE TO MODIFY A LOT OF THE FARM MACHINERY TO CONTINUE HIS DREAM. AMI  COOPER "THERE'S USUALLY SOMETHING OUT THERE THAT CAN HELP THEM WHETHER IT BE AN ADDITIONAL  STEP ON A TRACTOR OR SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS AN AUTOMATIC TAKE OFF."  ONE OF THE FIRST  IMPROVEMENTS WAS A CARRIER RAIL THAT HELPS ADAM SEAMLESSLY MOVE THE 20-POUND MILKING UNIT  FROM ONE COW TO THE OTHER WITH A SIMPLE RAIL SYSTEM.  "THEY'RE PROBABLY 20 POUNDS AND QUITE  AWKWARD, WHERE WITH THIS, IT'LL SLIDE RIGHT ACROSS…I USE IT AS A HAND RAIL TO CROSS THE GUTTER  AND IT'S JUST THAT SIMPLE." THE FAUSTS ALSO RETRO-FITTED THEIR FARM EQUIPMENT WITH SPEED  HITCHES TO REDUCE STEPPING UP AND DOWN FROM THE TRACTORS MULTIPLE TIMES AS WELL AS ADDING  LARGER STEPS TO HELP ADAM CLIMB ONTO THEIR TRACTOR. "WITHOUT THE TECHNOLOGY THAT'S AVAILABLE,  IT'D BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO CONTINUE." FOR ADAM, WHO'S STRONG-WILLED BY NATURE, GIVING UP  JUST WASN'T AN OPTION.  I'S ALL I'VE EVER DONE; IT'S ALL I'VE EVER WANTED TO DO."  AND THAT'S  WISCONSIN DAIRY NEWS. DOCTORS TOLD ADAM IT WOULD TAKE A COUPLE OF MONTHS TO GET USED TO  THE PROSTHETIC.  BUT JUST A FEW WEEKS LATER WHEN A THERAPIST ARRIVED  TO HELP HIM MANEUVER STAIRS, ADAM INFORMED HIM THAT HE HAD BEEN  TAKING STAIRS SINCE THE MOMENT HE GOT HOME. ADAM SAID HE HAD CHORES  TO DO.

CLOSE
THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED  IN.  FOR ALL OF US AT AGDAY. I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. HAVE A GREAT DAY.
