DECEMBER 15, 2017


HEADLINES
COTTONSEED PRICES ARE DOWN AND THE INDUSTRY IS  LOOKING TO CONGRESS FOR HELP. IN AGRIBUSINESS...FINDING PROFITS IN A GLUT OF  GRAIN.  "PRICES ARE GOING TO BE UNDER PRESSURE AND  THERE ONLY ONE ALTERNATIVE IS THEY'RE GOING TO  HAVE TO WALK THAT GRAIN OFF THE FARM WHICH WILL  ADD TO TONNAGE." WE'RE CHECKING CHAINS ON FARM JOURNAL COLLEGE  TV. AND PROTEIN POWER IS HELPING THIS WISCONSIN MOM  KEEP HER KIDS HEALTHY. AGDAY - PRESENTED BY CHEVY SILVERADO. HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL FOR  HIGH-STRENGTH DEPENDABILITY.

COTTON WATCHING CONGRESS
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. THE COTTON  INDUSTRY IS WATCHING BUDGET NEGOTIATORS IN  CONGRESS CLOSELY. THEY HOPE SOME COTTON-FRIENDLY POLICIES GET  INCLUDED IN THE NEXT BUDGET PLAN...AND THE  DECEMBER 22ND DEADLINE IS QUICKLY APPROACHING. PROGRAMS - LIKE THOSE DEALING WITH COTTON SEED -  DIDN'T MAKE THE CUT THE LAST TIME.  BETSY JIBBEN REPORTS, ON WHY THE INDUSTRY HOPES  THIS TIME IS DIFFERENT. <CONGRESS PASSED A SHORT-TERM SPENDING DEAL  TO DELAY A GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN WITH A  DECEMBER 22 DEADLINE TO KEEP THE GOVERNMENT  OPEN.  COTTON FARMERS ARE SOME WHO ARE WATCHING IT  CLOSELY AS BOTH THE HOUSE AND SENATE 

APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEES INCLUDED POSSIBLE  COTTON CHANGES IN ITS BILLS.  BETSY JIBBEN REPORTS WHY PRODUCERS SAY THEY  NEED RELIEF. > TRUCKS ARE ON THE MOVE TO AND FROM  HOKE ROBESON GIN IN RED SPRINGS, NORTH  CAROLINA. IMPRESSIVE YIELDS ARE GOOD FOR BUSINESS. "WE REALLY DON'T HAVE MUCH TO COMPLAIN ABOUT EXCEPT FOR  PRICE."EVEN THOUGH COTTON TRADED HIGHER THURSDAY,  IT HASN'T BEEN THAT WAY MAJORITY OF THE YEAR.  "COTTON PRICES FOR MOST OF THE YEAR HAVE TRADED BETWEEN ON THE  FUTURES MARKET, FRONT MONTH CONTRACT-WISE, BETWEEN ABOUT 67  CENTS AND 75 CENTS." PAYNE SAYS EXPORTS COOLED TOWARD THE END OF THE YEAR JUST BEFORE THE NEW CROP CAME IN. HOWEVER, HE SAYS COTTON EXPORTS ARE STRONG  <"A LOT OF THAT WAS DUE TO PRODUCTION LOSSES IN INDIA AND CHINA.  WE'RE NOT SURE WHAT THE CROP LOOKS LIKE OVERSEAS. SOME  SPECULATE THE CROP IS MUCH WORSE T HAN WE'RE LETTING ON. IF THAT'S  THE CASE, YOU SHOULD SEE EXPORTS CONTINUE,"> DESPITE DEMAND,  THAT PRICE IS STILL WEIGHING ON PRODUCERS THIS  YEAR.  A GLUT OF  COTTONSEED MAY BE TO BLAME.  USDA SAYS  ROUGHLY 1.4 MILLION MORE TONS OF  COTTONSEED WAS PRODUCED IN 2017 COMPARED TO  LAST YEAR.  AND LOWER COTTON SEED PRICES ARE HITTING GINS  HARD. "PARDON MY FRENCH, BUT WE GOT CAUGHT WITH OUR BRITCHES  DOWN."EDENS SAYS THE GIN STORED A MILLION DOLLARS  WORTH OF COTTONSEED LAST YEAR.  THE OIL MILL NEARBY CLOSED. THEY HAD A GLUT OF  COTTONSEED THAT DID NOT GET COMPLETELY SOLD  UNTIL THE FACILITY STARTED UP THE GIN THIS YEAR. "I'M JUST NOW PAYING OFF THAT MILLION DOLLAR LOAN OFF FROM LAST  YEAR'S SEED. I COULDN'T STAND ANOTHER YEAR OF THAT."FARMERS ARE FEELING THE IMPACT TOO.  THIS IS THE SECOND YEAR FARMERS AT HOKE  ROBESON GIN WILL FEEL A GINNING CHARGE WHICH  WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM THEIR CROP. THIS YEAR, IT'S  5 CENTS A  POUND. AND THEY'RE NOT ALONE.  "I'VE ACTUALLY HEARD PEOPLE GINNING FOR EVEN MONEY SO THE  COTTONSEED IS COVERING ALL OF THE COSTS IN TEXAS IN GEORGIA. I'VE  HEARD ONE CENT AND TWO CENT IN GEORGIA AND ALABAMA. SO IT'S  BEEN VARIED BUT 5 CENT IS DEFINATELY AT THE TOP END OF THAT  RANGE." THE SENATE AG. APPROPRIATIONS BILL CONTAINED  PROVISIONS WHICH WOULD HAVE MADE COTTONSEED  ELGIBLE FOR ARC AND PLC SAFETYNETS ALONG WITH A  POLICY FIX AND ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR DAIRY.  THE HOUSE VERSION ONLY CONTAINED REPORT  LANGUGAGE WHICH URGED USDA TO TAKE ACTION TO  HELP COTTON IN THE INTERIM. "I THINK THAT HAVING COTTONSEED COVERED UNDER THE SAME  PROGRAMS THAT ARE AWARDED TO OTHER COMMODITIES, ARC AND PLC  WOULD BE A LONG TERM FIX WE'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR." BUSINESS WILL GO ON AS TRUCKS KEEP MOVING AT  THE HOKE ROBESON GIN AS GROWERS HOPE  CONGRESS HEARS THEIR PLEA.  EDENS SAYS HE'S SHIPPING MORE COTTONSEED OUT  TO DAIRIES IN THE MIDWEST THIS YEAR BUT THOSE  PRODUCERS ARE IN A SQUEEZE DUE TO MILK PRICES  AND FREIGHT COSTS. 

IOWA LAND SLIDE
THE THREE YEAR SLIDE IN IOWA FARMLAND VALUES  HAS REACHED A LULL...AT LEAST FOR NOW. IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY JUST RELEASING ITS ANNUAL  LAND VALUES SURVEY.  THIS REPORT IS OFTEN A  BENCHMARK IN THE INDUSTRY DUE TO IOWA'S LEADING  ROLE IN CORN PRODUCTION. FARMERS REMAIN THE PRIMARY BUYERS OF LAND. THERE WAS A SLIGHT  INCREASE IN THE PERCENTAGE OF INVESTORS BUYING LAND THIS YEAR.  THE SURVEY INDICATES THAT 71 PERCENT OF BUYERS WERE EXISTING  FARMERS AND 23 PERCENT WERE INVESTORS. NEW FARMERS COMPRISED  4 PERCENT OF THE BUYERS.  THE IOWA RESULTS SHOW LAND VALUES CLIMBED TWO  PERCENT STATEWIDE DURING THE PAST YEAR. THE  AVERAGE PRICE IS JUST OVER 73-HUNDRED DOLLARS  AN ACRE (7326). THAT'S AN INCREASE OF ONE-HUNDRED- 43 DOLLARS. HIGH QUALITY FARMLAND CLIMBED ONE-HUNDRED-75  DOLLARS AN ACRE. THE HIGHEST AVERAGE VALUE IS IN EASTERN IOWA'S  SCOTT COUNTY - AT NEARLY 10-THOUSAND-500  DOLLARS PER ACRE. THE IOWA STUDY SURVEY SHOWS LAND VALUES  DECLINED IN ONLY FOUR OF THE STATE'S 99 COUNTIES. THE ECONOMIST WHO CONDUCTS THE SURVEY  CAUTIONED THE INCREASE DOES NOT MEAN THE  AGRICULTURAL ECONOMY HAS TURNED THE CORNER.

GIPSA
SEVERAL FARMERS IN ALABAMA AND NEBRASKA HAVE  JOINED IN A LAWSUIT AGAINST USDA AND AG  SECRETARY SONNY PERDUE STEMMING FROM THE  "GIPSA RULE".  EARLIER THIS FALL USDA CANCELLED THE "FARMERS  FAIR PRACTICE RULE".  THAT OBAMA-ERA RULE WOULD MAKE IT EASIER FOR FARMERS - LIKE POULTRY PRODUCERS - TO SUE  MEATPACKING COMPANIES IN WHICH THEY HAVE  CONTRACTS. THE LAWSUIT SEEKS TO REVERSE THE USDA'S  OCTOBER DECISION TO VACATE THE RULE. THE  PLAINTIFFS SAY SECRETARY SONNY PERDUE IGNORED  THOUSANDS OF PUBLIC COMMENTS ABOUT THE RULE.   USDA DIDN'T COMMENT ON THE LITIGATION.

CROP COMMENTS
THERE MAY BE SNOW ON THE GROUND IN SOME PLACES  BUT DROUGHT AND DRYNESS IS EXPANDING IN THE  LOWER 48. GOOD MORNING CLINTON. DROUGHT CONDITIONS HAVE EXPANDED IN KANSAS.  NEARLY THE ENTIRE STATE IS COVERED WITH SOME  LEVEL OF DROUGHT. LAST WEEK IT WAS 63-PERCENT. ABOUT TWO PERCENT OF THE STATE - DOWN IN THE  SOUTH CENTRAL COUNTIES - HAVE ENTERED THE  SEVERE DROUGHT CATEGORY. WE ALSO SEE A SIGNIFICANT RED BLOTCH SITTING  OVER ARKANSAS. THE ENTIRE STATE IS IN DROUGHT.  42-PERCENT IS IN D- 3 OR "EXTREME" DROUGHT. THAT'S 16-POINTS WORSE  THAN LAST WEEK. ANOTHER 44-PERCENT IS IN SEVERE DROUGHT AND  TAKING A LOOK AT THE OVERALL DROUGHT MONITOR  YOU CAN SEE THAT THE UPPER MIDWEST AND THE  GREAT LAKES ARE HAVING NO PROBLEMS BUT PARTS  OF MONTANA AND THE DAKOTAS STILL HAVE SOME  ISSUES THERE AND THERE'S DRYER CONDITIONS  DEVLOPING IN THE SOUTHEAST WE'LL HAVE MORE ON  THAT AND YOUR FORECAST COMING UP IN A FEW  MINUTES FIRST HERE ARE SOME HOMETOWN TEMPS. FARM JOURNAL ON AIR IS THE GO-TO APP FOR AMERICAN  AGRICULTURE.  AGDAY, AGRITALK, U.S. FARM REPORT AND MORE -  24/7 ACCESS TO ALL OF YOUR FAVORITE SHOWS. TV AND RADIO...IN YOUR  HANDS, ON DEMAND.  FARM JOURNAL ON AIR - DOWNLOAD THE APP  TODAY.  )

TEASE
WHEN WE COME BACK WE'LL DISCUSS HOW GROWTH IN  THE LIVESTOCK INDUSTRY COULD HELP WITH A GLUT OF  GRAIN. AND LATER, A WISCONSIN MOM WORRIED ABOUT THE  HEALTH OF HER BUSY KIDS FOUND A WAY TO ADD  HEALTHY PROTEIN THANKS TO HELP FROM A TEAM OF  DAIRY RESEARCHERS.  RECEIVE A FREE TRIAL OF THE DAILY GRAIN PLAN NEWS LETTER FROM  ROACH AG MARKETING.  TEXT ROACH TO 31313.  START YOUR  SUBSCRIPTION BY TEXTING ROACH TO 31313.  )

FLOOR OF THE CME
IN AGRIBUSINESS BEANS UNDER PRESSURE DURING  THE TRADING SESSION THURSDAY. LETS SEE HOW THE  MARKETS CLOSED FROM THE FLOOR. I WANT TO START BY LOOKING AT THAT CORN MARKET WE'VE BEEN TALKING  ABOUT THAT 350 LEVEL KIND OF BEING A MAGNET FOR THE MARKET. IT  WAS FOR THAT PREVIOUS DECEMBER CONTRACT. WILL CONTINUE TO BE FOR  THIS MARCH CONTRACT UNTIL WE GET A TECHNICAL BREAKOUT OR A BREAK  DOWN. RIGHT NOW THE BEARS ARE IN CONTROL. WE'VE BEEN MAKING A  TREND OF LOWER HIGHS AND LOWER LOWS OVER THE PAST SEVERAL  MONTHS. SO I DON'T THINK YOU'RE GOING TO WANT TO STEP IN AND BE A  BUYER JUST YET YOU WANT TO SEE IT CLOSED BACK ABOVE SOME OF  THESE TECHNICAL RESISTANCE LEVEL. THE 50 DAY MOVING AVERAGE  BEING ONE OF THEM. THIS IS A SIMPLE INDICATOR BUT ONE WE HAVE  NOT CLOSED ABOVE SINCE JULY. NOW AS FAR AS THE SOYBEANS ARE  CONCERNED THEY'VE BEEN UNDER A TON OF PRESSURE OVER THE LAST  WEEK TAKING OFF ABOUT 40 PLUS CENTS ON THAT JANUARY CONTRACT. SO  WE'RE LOOKING AT 967 IN 1968 AS A VERY PIVOTAL SUPPORT POCKET  GOING INTO THE WEEKEND. IT'S BEEN ALL OLIVER SLOUP WITH BLUE LINE  FUTURES FROM THE FLOOR OF THE CME.

AGRIBUSINESS
HERE AT THE AGRIBUSINESS DESK I HAVE BOB UTTERBACK UTTERBACK  MARKETING. ALL RIGHT WE'VE GOT A COUPLE OF THINGS WE KNOW IS  HAPPENING BOB. ONE WE HAD A BIG GRAIN CROP LAST YEAR AND WE  HAVE MORE PROTEIN ON THE FARM AS WELL. HOW DO WE STICK THESE  TWO ISSUES TOGETHER. COUPLE OF TONES THAT I'M PICKING UP IN THE  MARKETPLACE. THE PACKERS RIGHT NOW AND THE HOGS SHORT TERM  ARE CONCERNED THAT IRAN AROUND THE CORNER ARGUMENT TORY  NUMBERS ARE GOING TO START IMPROVING AND SO CASH PRICES GOING  BE UNDER PRESSURE. SO IF I HAD WAS UNHEDGED FOR MY GEN FEBE  MARKETING'S I WOULD BE VERY CAUTIOUS BECAUSE SEASONALLY WEAK  DEIBERT I'D BE GETTING SOME PLACE. BUT WHEN YOU THINK LONG TERM.  ALSO I'VE BEEN HERE AND WHEN YOU READ THE TRADE COPY A LOT OF  THE RETAIL TRADE IS PREPARING ITSELF FOR A PRETTY BIG COOKOUT SEASON  NEXT SPRING BECAUSE THEY ARE BETTING ON PRETTY BIG SUPPLIES OF  BEEF AND SO THEY'RE GOING TO BE A LOT OF BEEF FEATURING I THINK  NEXT YEAR BECAUSE THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE PLENTY OF SUPPLIES  WHICH WILL HELP THE MAN. BUT IT'S NOT GOING TO EAT UP THE SUPPLY.  SO THE REAL THE REAL DANGER OUT HERE I THINK IN THE FUTURE FOR CATTLE  WE KNOW SEASONALLY CATTLE PRICES BETWEEN NOW AND APRIL  SEASONALLY RALLY. I DON'T THINK THERE'S NOT A BIG ARGUMENT AGAINST  SOME SEASONAL BOUNCE BUT IT'S GOING TO BE DIFFICULT TO RESTRAIN A  MAJOR WATER SUPPLY SITUATION. THE QUESTION I HAVE FOR FARMERS IS  IF YOU START LOOKING IN THIRD AND FOURTH QUARTER OF NEXT YEAR CATTLE  AND HOG PRICES IN GENERAL CONCEPTUALLY IF WE DO NOT HAVE A  WEATHER PROBLEM IN THE GRAINS AND WE HAVE ANOTHER 1 7 ON 90  MILLION 9 MILLION PLANTED IN CORN AND WE HAVE ANOTHER 170 TO 172  CROPS SO THE CARRY OVERSTAY SOMEPLACE NORTH TO 3 TO 4 AND WE  CARRY SOME OLD CROP CORN FORWARD. FARMERS ARE GOING TO BE.  PRICES ARE GOING TO BE UNDER PRESSURE AND THERE ARE ONLY ONE  ALTERNATIVE IS THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO WALK THAT GRAIN OFF THE FARM  WHICH WILL ADD TONNAGE AND THAT'S COMPUT CATTLE AND HOGS I THINK  INTO A PRECARIOUS POSITION FOR SO I WOULD BE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF  FIRST QUARTER 2018 PRICES IN CATTLE TO BASICALLY GET SOME HEDGING IN PLACE. BASIC BASO. SO WE I MEAN WE DID HAVE A PRETTY GOOD  END OF 17. BUT YOU THINK WE NEED TO START LOOKING AHEAD INTO 18  LATE 18TH AUGUST ON OUT IS GOING TO REALLY BE USED IN THE FIRST HALF  OF 18 TO PROTECT THE LAST 18 ON THE ASSUMPTION THAT SAYS WE'RE  GOING TO CONTINUE TO GROW SUPPLIES SUPPLY UNTIL SOMETHING TELLS  US DIFFERENT SUPPLY. ALL RIGHT APPRECIATE ABOUT. THANKS SO MUCH.  WE'LL BE BACK MORE AGDAY IN JUST A MINUTE.

WEATHER
WELCOME BACK AGDAY HERE WITH METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN  LOOKING AT THE MAP AND I'LL TELL YOU MIKE DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THERE'S  A WHOLE LOT ON IT TODAY. NO THERE ISN'T THERE THERE'S SOME RAIN IN  SOUTH TEXAS AND THAT'S GOING TO STAY MAINLY SOUTH OF THE RIO  GRANDE THE SOUTHERN PART PORTIONS OF TEXAS GETTING THE MAJORITY  OF IT NORTH OF THERE IT'S MAINLY HIGH PRESSURE DOMINATING ACROSS  THE TENNESSEE VALLEY BACK INTO NORTHERN PORTIONS OF TEXAS AND  REALLY MOST OF THE WEST IS DRY AT THIS POINT BUT YOU'RE FINALLY GOING  TO GET A FRONT TO COME THROUGH FOR THE FIRST TIME IN TWO OR THREE  WEEKS. HIGH PRESSURE COMING IN BEHIND THIS AREA OF SNOW OVER  THE GREAT LAKES PUTTING THE MAPS INTO MOTION. YOU CAN SEE HOW  THAT LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVES THROUGH THE GREAT LAKES THIS IS  NOT GOING TO PUT DOWN A LOT OF SNOW BUT SOME AREAS MIGHT SEE  TWO OR THREE INCHES OF IT ACROSS THE CENTRAL PORTIONS OF THE GREAT  LAKES A LITTLE BIT OF SNOW RIGHT ALONG THE SHORE IT LOOKS LIKE AS THIS  STORM SYSTEM KIND OF MOVES OFFSHORE ALONG THE MID-ATLANTIC  SOUTHERN PORTION OF NEW ENGLAND AS WELL. THERE'S THAT NEXT FRONT  CAUSING JUST A LITTLE BIT OF RAIN AND MOUNTAIN SNOWS IN THE  WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE COUNTRY BY TOMORROW MORNING. THAT IS  MOVING INTO THE CENTRAL PORTIONS OF THE ROCKIES AREA OF SNOW  DEVELOPING AHEAD OF THIS WARM FRONT THEN IN THE WESTERN GREAT  LAKES ONCE AGAIN AND HEADING THROUGH THE DAY TOMORROW AS WE  HEAD THROUGH THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEKEND SOME LIGHT SNOW  ACROSS PARTS OF THE GREAT LAKES A LITTLE BIT BEHIND THIS FRONT.  SCUSE ME ACROSS SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF SOUTH DAKOTA NORTHERN  NEBRASKA BACK INTO THE CENTRAL ROCKIES AND ANOTHER COLD FRONT  COMING INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST YOU SEE OUR PATTERN HAS  CHANGED A LITTLE BIT. WE'RE ACTUALLY GETTING SOME SYSTEMS TO  COME INTO THE WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE COUNTRY. LOOK AT THAT OVER  THE PAST 24 HOURS ALMOST NO PART OF THE COUNTRY SAW MUCH  MOISTURE MAINLY SOUTH TEXAS LIKE WE SAID ADDING IN THE NEXT 36  HOURS. IT'S MAINLY IN FAR SOUTH TEXAS. WE GET A LITTLE BIT OF SNOW  MOVING THROUGH THE UPPER MIDWEST AND THE GREAT LAKES INTO THE NORTHEAST AND WE GET SOME DEVELOPING FOR A CHANGE INTO THE  NORTHERN ROCKIES AND THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST SNOWFALL THEN MOST  OF IT HAS BEEN OVER THE GREAT LAKES OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS.  AGAIN VERY LIGHT AMOUNTS OF SNOW THEN COMING IN WITH THAT NEXT  SYSTEM OF COURSE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE NORTHERN ROCKIES WILL  GET SOME OF THAT COLD FRONT AS IT MOVES TOWARD THE SOUTHEAST.  THERE IS THE TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON ONLY TEENS AND 20S  GREAT LAKES INTO THE NORTHEAST BUT THAT'S THE LAST REALLY COLD AREA  OUT OF THIS SYSTEM. YOU CAN SEE LOTS OF 40S AND 50S THROUGH  MOST OF THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY EVEN 50S CLEARED OUT OF THE  GULF COAST EXCEPT FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTH FLORIDA LOWS TOMORROW  MORNING. YOU CAN SEE MOSTLY IN THE 30S ACROSS THE CENTER OF THE  COUNTRY BUT ZERO IN SIOUX ST. MARIE STILL VERY COLD AIR THERE LOTS OF  TEENS AND 20S JUST TO THE SOUTH OF THAT HIGH TEMPERATURES  TOMORROW AFTERNOON FINALLY START TO WARM UP A LITTLE BIT. 50S AND  60S SHOWING UP OVER THE CENTRAL PLAINS STILL ONLY FIVE IN SIOUX ST.  MARIE. BUT EVEN THE SOUTHERN GREAT LAKES MAKING IT BACK INTO  THE LOWER 40S FOR A CHANGE. HERE'S THE JET STREAM YOU CAN SEE  AS WE MOVE THROUGH TIME WE GET RID OF THAT TROUGH IN THE EAST.  WE KIND OF GO WITH SOME CHANGES HERE AS A TROUGH MOVES FROM  WEST TO EAST TRIES TO REDEVELOP IN THE EAST AND I THINK WE WILL STILL  SEE BY LATE NEXT WEEK. ANOTHER BLAST OF VERY COLD AIR COMING  SOUTHWARD AND EXACTLY HOW FAR SOUTH AND HOW FAR EAST THAT  COMES AS WE HEAD TOWARD CHRISTMAS IS THE BIG QUESTION AND  WHETHER THIS COULD BE A BIG STORM SYSTEM AT SOME POINT FARTHER  TO THE EAST. TRAVELERS NEED TO BE PAYING ATTENTION TO THAT ONE.  THAT'S THE LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY. NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME  LOCAL FORECASTS. FIRST OF ALL FOR PRICE UTAH PARTLY SUNNY AND RATHER  CHILLY TODAY. HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 42 DEGREES. ABERDEEN SOUTH  DAKOTA. CLOUDS AND SOME SUNSHINE. HIGH OF 41. AND FINALLY  FRANKFORT KENTUCKY A MIXTURE OF CLOUD AND SUNSHINE THE  AFTERNOON HIGH OF 39.

TEASE
WHEN WE COME BACK, WE'RE GOING TO KEEP TALKING  FARM SAFETY INCLUDING THE DO'S AND DON'T FOR  USING METAL CHAINS. AND WE LEARN ABOUT A MILK-BASED SNACK BAR THAT  HELPS YOUNG WOMEN PROMOTE A HEALTHY-SELF- IMAGE....AND HOW A MOM HELPED MAKE IT A REALITY. AGDAY - BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE ENLIST WEED CONTROL SYSTEM.  MORE WEED CONTROL.  LESS DRIFT AND VOLATILITY.  MAXIMUM YIELD  POTENTIAL.

FARM JOURNAL COLLEGE TV
WE'VE BEEN TALKING A LOT ABOUT SAFETY HERE ON  FARM JOURNAL COLLEGE TV. TODAY WE CONTINUE THE CONVERSATION AND  INCLUDE CHAINS -- WHICH ARE USED IN MANY  DIFFERENT WAYS ON AN OPERATION. 0NOW THESE THINGS AS TOUGH AS THEY ARE CAN GET WORN OUT WELL  SURE. JUST A PIECE OF METAL RIGHT. YOU KNOW YOU CAN HAVE ANY  KIND OF METAL BREAK. EVERY FARMER KNOWS THAT. AND SO ONE OF THE  NICE THINGS LIKE HERE BY THE WAY I SEE THAT YOU PUT UP MY MY ONE  OF MY FAVORITE CHAINS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I LIKE ABOUT HERE IS  PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF THESE CHAINS. WE PULL LOTS  OF VEHICLES WITH THE TRACTORS AND STUFF BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY WE'LL  ALSO TIED DOWN BULLDOZERS WE TIE DOWNS EQUIPMENT. AND SO WE  WANT THESE THINGS OBVIOUSLY TO LOOK GOOD BUT WHAT'S NICE HERE IS  WHEN YOU HANG THEM UP IT IMPLIES THAT IN FACT THESE ARE GOOD  CHAINS. OK. LOT OF GUYS WILL TAKE THEIR CHAIN THROW THEM ALL OVER  THE FLOOR YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOOD OR BAD. BUT WHAT I REALLY  LIKE BECAUSE AGAIN WE'RE WORRIED ABOUT THE ACCIDENTS AND STUFF  ON THE HIGHWAYS THINGS FALLING OFF. AND SO YOU CAN SEE WE'VE GOT  THEM HUNG UP HERE AND I PUT THIS UP FOR WHEN WE PUT THIS UP  HERE FOR A REASON. OBVIOUSLY YOU CAN SEE THAT THESE THINGS ARE  STRETCHED BEYOND IMAGINATION RIGHT. EVERYBODY WOULD KNOW THAT  IT'S NOT A GOOD CHAIN. BUT YOU KNOW I ALWAYS HEAR IT BUT IT AIN'T  BROKE RIGHT OUT. AND SO THIS ONE HERE IS SO STIFF YOU COULD  ACTUALLY WALK A DOG WITH IT. SO YOU KNOW THERE'S A LOT RIDING ON  THESE PARTICULAR THINGS. AND SO I WANT TO MAKE SURE I HAVE GOOD  CHAINS. I WANT TO MAKE SURE THERE'S NO REALLY BAD GOUGES IN CUTS.  AND IF THEY ARE WANT TO REPLACE THEM BECAUSE SO MUCH OF OUR  FARM EITHER HAULING ON THE HIGHWAYS OR PULLING OUT STUCK  EQUIPMENT RIDES ON THESE THINGS. YEAH. ABSOLUTELY AND HANGING  THEM UP IS AN EASY WAY TO KIND OF SEE THEM VISUALLY YOU LOOK  THEM UP. IT KEEPS THEM OFF THE FLOOR KEEPS THEM OUT OF WATER. IT  TELLS ME THEN IF THEY'RE NOT ANY GOOD THEY SHOULDN'T BE HANGING  UP.  TAKE A LOOK AT THIS. I GOT THESE PICTURES SENT TO ME FROM TWITTER  REGARDING OUR LAST FARM JOURNAL COLLEGE TV TIP  ABOUT CLEVIS SAFETY WHEN PULLING OUT STUCK  EQUIPMENT. ERIC MINKS SAYS OUR STORY HIT CLOSE TO HOME.   QUOTE, "VERY LUCKY ON THIS ONE" HE SAYS THE PIN CAME OUT OF THE CLEVIS.  BOTH METAL CLEVIS AND TOW STRAP SNAPPING BACK THROUGH  BOTH THE FRONT AND REAR WINDOWS. LUCKILY NO ONE WAS INJURED BUT HE HAS ALREADY  CHANGED ALL OF HIS EQUIPMENT TO A SCREW IN TYPE  CLEVIS RATHER THE PIN HELD VERSIONS. ERIC THANKS FOR SHARING AND SO THANKFUL NO ONE  WAS HURT.

TEASE
STILL TO COME - SEE HOW DAIRY RESEARCHERS  HELPED  A WISCONSIN MOM CREATE A HEALTHY MEAL- TO-GO FOR HER TEENAGE DAUGHTER.

IN THE COUNTRY
IN THE COUNTRY - SPONSORED BY KUBOTA.  TRACTORS, HAY TOOLS, UTILILTY VEHICLES, MOWERS AND MORE.  VISIT KUBOTA.COM TODAY. NO MATTER YOUR CAREER PATH OR LIFESTYLE, IT  SEEMS WE'RE ALWAYS ON THE GO. SOMETIMES WE'RE  JUST TOO DARN BUSY TO SIT-DOWN AND ENJOY A  HEALTH MEAL. IN THIS VIDEO PROVIDED BY THE WISCONSIN MILK  MARKETING BOARD, WE MEET A MOM WHO WAS TRYING  TO MAKE SURE HER TEENAGE DAUGHTER HAD QUICK  BUT HEALTHY SNACK. AS YOU'LL SEE, THE WISCONSIN  CENTER FOR DAIRY RESEARCH HELPED OUT. PROTEIN BARS ARE NOTHING NEW, BUT A DAIRY-BASED PROTEIN SNACK  BAR GEARED TOWARD YOUNG WOMEN TO PROMOTE A HEALTHY SELF- IMAGE AND HEALTHY EATING IS HITTING THE MARKETPLACE! "DAIRY HAS  SOME OF THE HIGHEST PROTEIN QUALITY OF ANY FOOD PROTEIN. WHEY  PROTEIN ESPECIALLY BUT FOR TEENAGERS, ESPECIALLY TEENAGE WOMEN  WHO ARE STILL GROWING AND DEVELOPING, PROTEIN IS ESPECIALLY  IMPORTANT FOR THEM." JOUZGE BARS ARE THE BRAINCHILD OF DANA  WENDT, A UW-MADISON ALUM. SHE STUMBLED UPON THE IDEA AFTER  REALIZING THAT THE PROTEIN BARS SHE WAS EATING SENT A MESSAGE TO  HER YOUNG DAUGHTER ABOUT WEIGHT MANAGEMENT. "THAT  WAS REALLY THE INCEPTION. WE ALSO FOUND MOST PROTEIN PRODUCTS  WERE TARGETING FEMALES AND THEY WEREN'T HEALTHY, THEY ALWAYS  CAME WITH A DIET MESSAGE. AND WE DID NOT WANT THAT FOR OUR  DAUGHTER."  SO A FEW YEARS AGO, DANA CONTACTED UW-MADISON'S  CENTER FOR DAIRY RESEARCH ABOUT CREATING A DAIRY-BASED PROTEIN  SNACK BAR FOR YOUNG WOMEN. "I WAS EXCITED FOR A COUPLE OF  REASONS. ONE, BECAUSE DANA WAS TARGETING YOUNG WOMEN. AND  THEN, OUR GROUP, ALL OF US ARE WOMEN AS WELL, SO WE WERE REALLY  EXCITED ABOUT DEVELOPING A PRODUCT BY WOMEN FOR YOUNG  WOMEN." AND THE BARS ARE BECOMING QUITE POPULAR WITH THE  INTENDED AUDIENCE. "MY FRIENDS LOVE THEM! I'VE NEVER HAD A  FRIEND THAT HASN'T LIKED THEM. THE GUYS LIKE THEM A LOT MORE THAN  I THOUGHT THEY WERE GOING TO TOO CONSIDERING THEIR TARGETED  TOWARDS TEENAGE GIRLS." MADE WITH EASY TO ABSORB DAIRY PROTEINS,  THE BARS PAIR A POSITIVE MESSAGE WITH A CLEAN INGREDIENT LABEL  AND A GREAT FLAVOR PROFILE! "THE PURPOSE OF JOUZGE IS TO BUILD  STRONG AND CONFIDENT GIRLS FROM THE INSIDE OUT. BECAUSE IT COMES  WITH THAT PART OF MAKING SURE GIRLS DO HAVE A GREAT SNACK FOR  WHEN THEY ARE ON THE GO." AND THAT'S WISCONSIN DAIRY NEWS. THE BARS COME IN CHOCOLATE MINT, CHOCOLATE  PEANUT BUTTER, AND CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH  FLAVORS.

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