DECEMBER 5, 2016


HEADLINES
COMING UP TODAY ON AGDAY - BIRD FLU IS BACK IN EUROPE AND ASIA...WE TAKE  A LOOK AT THE DEBATE BETWEEN RESEARCHERS ON HOW HIGH PATH STRAINS  ARE SPREADING. IN AGRIBUSINESS...THE CHALLENGE FOR WHEAT MARKETS. MACHINERY PETE IS HERE WITH A LOOK AT COMBINE PRICES. AND A NORTH  DAKOTA MAN'S PASSION FOR POTATO CHIPS HAS HELPED HIM AMASS A HUGE  COLLECTION OF HISTORIC CONTAINERS.  AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE  DEPENDABLE, LONG LASTING CHEVY SILVERADO.

AVIAN FLU OUTBREAK
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. COULD ANOTHER GLOBAL OUTBREAK OF HIGHLY PATHOGENIC AVIAN FLU BE  PREPARING TO STIFLY THE POULTRY INDUSTRY? IN JUST THE LAST FEW WEEKS, THIS HAS BEEN THE SCENE IN COUNTRIES  ACROSS THE GLOBE. HIGH PATH H-5 VERSIONS OF THE VIRUS ARE POPPING UP ACROSS EUROPE,  NORTHERN AFRICA AND ASIA. AVIAN INFLUENZA HAS BEEN DETECTED IN OVER 10 EUROPEAN COUNTRIES:   INCLUDING NETHERLANDS, SWITZERLAND, GERMANY DENMARK. IT'S BEEN  REPORTED IN EGYPT, JAPAN AND SOUTH KOREA. SO FAR, THOUSANDS OF BIRDS HAVE BEEN CULLED.  IT WAS JUST LAST YEAR THAT THE U.S. WAS BATTLING IT'S OWN OUTBREAK IN  THE MIDWEST. BUT NEW RESEARCH WITH ST. JUDE CHILDEREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL, OHIO  STATE AND THE UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA IS SHEDDING LIGHT ON JUST HOW  THESE HIGH PATH STRAINS ARE CARRIED...AND SPREAD. AND NOW IT'S CAUSING A DEBATE BETWEEN RESEARCHERS.  BETSY JIBBEN HAS THE STORY.  APRIL OF 2015,  TURKEY PRODUCER GREG LANGMO RECEIVED SOME NEWS HE'LL NEVER  FORGET.WHEN MY MANAGER CALLED AND SAID THE BIRDS DON'T LOOK RIGHT. I THOUGHT UH OH.  HIS WAS JUST ONE OF OVER 200 COMMERCIAL FLOCKS  INFECTED BY H5 AVIAN  INFLUENZA WHICH USDA SAYS KILLED MORE THAN 50 MILLION BIRDS.  NOW RESEARCHERS SAY WILD BIRDS MAY NOT BE TO BLAME FOR THE SPREAD  OF HIGHLY PATHOGENIC CASES. WHILE WILD DUCKS AND OTHER BIRDS ARE KNOWN TO BE NATURAL HOSTS FOR  LOW PATH VIRUSES,THEIR RESEARCH SAYS THE MORE DEADLY HIGH PATH STRAIN DOES NOT  PERSIST IN WILD BIRDS."CERTAINLY WILD BIRDS CAN INTRODUCE LOW PATH AI INTO POULTRY POPULATION AND MUTATE INTO HIGH  PATH BUT IT LOOKS LIKE WILD BIRDS ARE NOT THE PRIMARY RESERVOIR MAINTAINING THE VIRUS IN THE  HIGHLY PATHOGENIC FORM,"> "IT JUST SEEMS LOGICAL TO THINK THAT IF THEY CAN SUPPORT HTE LOW PATH, THEN THEY SHOULD SUPPORT  THE HIGH PATH. AND IT'S TAKEN MANY YEARS TO REALIZE THAT THE WILD BIRDS OF HTE WORLD SIMPLY  DON'T MAINTAIN THE HIGH PATH VIRUS,"RESEARCHES TOOK THROAT SWABS AND OTHER SAMPLES TAKEN FROM OVER 22- THOUSAND WILD DUCKS AND BIRDS IN CANADA, THE MISSISSIPPI FLYWAY AND  ALONG THE ATLANTIC COAST BEFORE AND DURING THE 2014-2015 AVIAN FLU  OUTBREAK. NONE OF THE MIGRATORY BIRDS IN THE ANALYSIS WERE INFECTED WITH A  HIGHLY PATHOGENIC FLU VIRUS.  "THE IMPORTANCE OF THE STUDY IS THAT THE HIHGLY PATHOGENIC H5N8 VIRUS IS NOT BEING  MANTAINED IN THE WILD WATER FOWL OF HTE UNITED STATES OR CANADA,""WE'RE NOT SAYING WILD BIRDS DON'T PLAY A ROLE BUT CERTAINLY IT'S A DIFFERET THINKING THAT WHAT  WE'VE HAD BEFORE THAT WILD BIRDS ARE GOING TO SPREAD IT EVERYWHERE,"> UNTIL RESEARCHERS CAN GET MORE INFORMATION, BOTH SAY BIOSECURITY IS  KEY TO KEEP THE OPERATION SAFE.  "IF WE LOOK AT THE INDIANA CASE WHICH POPPED UP WITH THE HIGH PATH, THAT WAS A LOW PATH  VIRUS WITHIN THE WILD BIRD POPULATION. IT WAS INTRODUCED TO POULTRY AND MUTATED TO A HIGH PATH  FORM. BIO SECURITY IS THE PRIMARY WAY TO KEEP IT FROM HAPPENING,"> RESEARCHERS ACKNOWLEDGE THEIR WORK IS FAR FROM OVER.  "IT REALLY IS AN UNPREDICTABLE THING. I DONT SEE WE WILL REMOVE THE THREAT OF INFLUENZA AT THIS POINT. THE VIRUS CHANGES TOO QUICKLY. THEREFORE, WE'RE CONSTANTLY PLAYING  CATCHUP WITH THE VIRUS,""WHETHER YOU'RE A CATTLMEN, OR RAISE SHEEP OR CORN, IT'S A PASSION. IT'S A WAY OF LIFE. IT'S MUCH DIFFERENT THAN WORKING DOWN TOWN SO TO SPEAK,"IT'S A LIVELIHOOD MANY EMBRACE..AND A REASON PRODUCERS LIKE LANGMO HOPE THE VIRUS DOESN'T STRIKE IN  THEIR AREA AGAIN.  REPORTING FOR AGDAY, I'M BETSY JIBBEN.  THANKS BETSY. REPRESENTATIVES WITH APHIS TOLD AGDAY -- SINCE THIS ST. JUDE STUDY,  RESEARCHERS HAVE SINCE DETECTED HIGH PATH H5N2 IN AN ALASKAN MALLARD.THEY SAY IT PROVES THESE VIRUSES ARE CIRCULATING IN WILD BIRDS.  THE EUROPEAN OUTBREAK OF HIGH PATH H5N8 IS ALSO BELIEVED TO BE FROM  WILD BIRDS IN EUROPE. 

GLYPHOSATE-RESISTANT WHEAT
AND YOU MAY REMEMBER EARLIER THIS YEAR IN JULY, A FARMER IN WASHINGTON  STATE, FOUND WHEAT PLANTS GROWING IN AN UNPLANTED FIELD THAT  APPEARED TO BE RESISTANT TO GLYPHOSATE. USDA SAYS AFTER A LENGTHY INVESTIGATION, IT FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF  GENETICALLY ENGINEERED WHEAT IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN. APHIS SAYS THEY TESTED THE FARMERS ENTIRE WHEAT HARVEST AND FOUND  NO OTHER G-E MATERIAL. USDA STRESSES THAT CURRENTLY THERE ARE NO GE-WHEAT VARIETIES FOR  SALE OR IN COMMERCIAL PRODUCTION IN THE UNITED STATES.  THEY DID NOT SAY HOW THEY THOUGHT THE G-E PLANTS GOT INTO THE  FARMER'S FIELD.

USDA AG EXPORTS
NEW ESTIMATES FOR AG EXPORTS ARE OUT FROM USDA. THESE NUMBERS LOOK AT FISCAL 2017. PROJECTED AT $134 BILLION THAT'S AN INCREASE OF MORE THAN $4 BILLION  FROM THIS YEAR AND WOULD BE THE SIXTH-HIGHEST TOTAL ON RECORD.  U.S. AGRICULTURE IS ONCE AGAIN EXPECTED TO POST A TRADE SURPLUS OF  $21.5 BILLION, UP NEARLY 30 PERCENT FROM THE SURPLUS IN 2016.  PART OF THAT DUE TO GRAINS. SOYBEANS ARE PROJECTED TO SHIP A RECORD 55.8 MILLION METRIC TONS. CORN IS ALSO UP 11 PERCENT FROM LAST YEAR. THE VOLUME OF COTTON EXPORTS IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN RECOVERING AND  MOST LIVESTOCK AND POULTRY PRODUCTS SHOULD SEE MODERATE INCREASES  IN EXPORT VOLUME AS WELL. 

CROP COMMENTS
CROP COMMENTS IS POWERED BY RESICORE HERBICIDE FOR CORN, FROM  DOW AGROSCIENCES.MIKE HOFFMAN JOINS US FOR A NEW WEEK OF CROP COMMENTS. GOOD  MORNING,MIKE.  GOOD MORNING, CLINTON.LET'S START OFF IN ODEBOLDT, IOWA.  NOW THAT HARVEST IS OVER, MATT RAASCH IS PUTTING ON SOME OF HIS INPUTS  FOR NEXT YEAR.HE SAYS IT PAYS TO HAVE LIVESTOCK TO 'FEED' NEXT YEAR'S CORN CROP.  AND JAY TAYLOR SENT US THIS PHOTO FROM SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA.  NOW THAT HARVEST IS OVER, THE LIVESTOCK ARE ROAMING ON SNOWY THE  FIELDS. USDA SAYS 75 PERCENT OF MINNESOTA'S TOPSOIL MOISTURE IS ADEQUATE.  SUBSOIL IS AT 78. A NEW REPORT COMES OUT LATER TODAY.  AND NOW HERE ARE SOME HOMETOWN TEMPS. 

TEASE
WE'RE TALKING WHEAT MARKETS AND GLOBAL PRICING PRESSURE NEXT IN  AGRIBUSINESS. AND LATER MACHINERY PETE. STICK AROUND FOLKS COMING UP I'LL TELL YOU ABOUT SOME RED HOT AUCTION PRICES ON COMBINES LAST WEEK. PLUS POTATO CHIPS ARE ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR SNACK FOODS IN THIS  COUNTRY.

AGRIBUSINESS
AGRIBUSINESS TODAY, BROUGHT TO YOU BY YAMAHA - MAKERS OF VIKING SIDE- BY-SIDES.  YAMAHA - REAL WORLD TOUGH.  U.S. WHEAT GROWERS CONTINUE TO FACE STIFF COMPETITION ON THE GLOBAL  MARKET.AUSTRALIA EVEN UPPING IT'S EXPECTATIONS FOR THE WHEAT CROP NOW IN THE  GROUND. TYNE MORGAN JOINS US WITH MORE. HERE NOW WITH ANGIE SETZER OF CITIZENS GRAIN. ANGIE THIS WHEAT MARKET  HAS BEEN AN UGLY ONE TO WATCH. BUT AS WE LOOK THIS YEAR POSSIBLY AT  THE LOWEST WHEAT ACRES EVER POSSIBLY AS WE LOOK AT THAT...IS THERE A  LOT OF UPSIDE POTENTIAL FOR THIS WHEAT MARKET RIGHT NOW? I WOULD SAY  AT THIS POINT YES AND YOU CAN ONLY BOUNCE OFF THE FLOOR WHAT YOU  HOPE IS THE FLOOR BEFORE WE TURNED AROUND I WOULD SAY THE ISSUES THAT WERE SAYING  WITH PRODUCTION DRY WEATHER IN THE SOUTHERN PLAINS ISSUES THAT WE'VE  SEEN WITH DRY WEATHER IN THE DELTA AREA AND THE PROBLEMS THAT WE'VE  SEEN WITH TOO MUCH MOISTURE THIS FALL IN THE SOFT RED WHEAT  AREAS  WOULD TELL ME THAT PRODUCTION WILL BE DOWN PRETTY SIGNIFICANTLY  GOING INTO NEXT YEAR IF WE SEE ANOTHER ISSUE COMPOUND SOMEWHERE  OUT THERE IN THE GLOBAL MARKET STRUCTURE PERHAPS SEE AN ADJUSTMENT  MADE TO CHINESE STOCKS YOU COULD SEE WHEAT KIND OF TURN QUICKLY AND  WITH THE FUND SHORT POSITION AND HOW LONG THEY'VE BEEN BEATING THAT DOWN IF THEY COME FLOODING BACK IN I WILL BE LIKE SOMEONE SCREAMING  FIRE IN A CROWDED THEATER THERE WILL NOT BE ENOUGH PLACES FOR THESE  GUYS TO BUY AND WE COULD SEE WHEAT REACT VERY STRONGLY TO THAT AND  RALLY IN A QUICK HURRY. UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE CHEAP WHEAT.  BUT CHEAP  WHEAT COULD ENTICE DEMAND NOW I KNOW WE HAVE THE STRONG U S DOLLAR  THAT COULD BE AN ISSUE BUT BECAUSE WE HAVE PRICES SO LOW DO YOU THINK  MAYBE WE'LL FIND SOME NEW BUYERS OUT THERE? I I HOPE SO THE HARDEST  PART IS WITH WHEAT YOU'RE EITHER GOING TO USE IT DOMESTICALLY MEANING  HUMAN CONSUMPTION OR YOU'RE GOING TO FEED IT TO CATTLE AND THAT'S NOT  GOING TO HELP CORN. WE HAVE SEEN EXPORTS PICK UP EVEN IN THE FACE OF  THE STRONG DOLLAR SO THAT'S BEEN HELPFUL IF WE COULD SEE THE DOLLAR  KIND OF COOL ITS JETS OR SEE SOME OTHER ISSUES DEVELOP. THERE'S BEEN  TALK OF UKRAINE HAVING A HARD TIME EXPORTING LIKE THEY NEED TO WITH  THEIR INFRASTRUCTURE. IF WE'RE TO SEE SOMETHING LIKE THAT HAPPEN WE  COULD SEE SOME NEW BUYERS COME IN AND SURPRISE US. NOW WE'VE HAD A  REALLY WIDE BASIS IN KANSAS AND SOME OF THE PRODUCERS ARE REALLY  FRUSTRATED WITH THAT WIDE BASIS WHAT CAN YOU DO WHEN YOU'RE DEALT  WITH A SITUATION LIKE THAT IT'S REALLY DIFFICULT TO DO MUCH AT THAT  STANDPOINT BECAUSE THE BASIS IS A FUNCTION OF LOCAL SUPPLY AND DEMAND  AND RIGHT NOW UNTIL SUPPLY IS CHEWED THROUGH VIA DEMAND  OR WE SEE A  PRODUCTION ISSUE DEVELOP WHERE THE SECOND YEAR CROP KIND OF FALLS  OFF A BIT THE KANSAS PRODUCERS GOING TO BE STUCK WITH A WIDE BASIS  UNLESS WE SEE SOMETHING HAPPEN LIKE WE SAW IN THE CHICAGO MARKET  WHERE THEY INTRODUCED A VARIABLE STORAGE RATE OR SOMETHING OF THAT  NATURE. ALRIGHT ANGIE THANK YOU SO MUCH I APPRECIATE IT. STAY WITH US  WE'LL HAVE MORE AGDAY WHEN WE COME BACK FOR HELP SOLVING YOUR CASH GRAIN PROBLEMS CALL ANGIE SETZER WITH  CITIZENS LLC AT 800-858-3738.

WEATHER
AGDAY WEATHER - BROUGHT TO YOU BY CORVUS PRE-EMERGENCE CORN HERBICIDE FROM BAYER.  THE  ONLY HERBICIDE TO OFFER THREE LEVELS OF DEFENSE AGAINST WEEDS - BURNDOWN, RESIDUAL AND  REACTIVATION WITH RAIN. WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY WITH METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFFMAN. MIKE WE'VE BEEN LOOKING AT THE  DROUGHT MONITOR THE SOUTHEAST VERY DRY BUT IF YOU LOOK THE RAIN OVER THE LAST WEEK, OLD BOY  THEY GOT A LOT. YEAH IT WAS PRETTY AMAZING. TOO MUCH TOO QUICK BUT BOY THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO  GET OUT OF THE DROUGHT IS TO GET STARTED LIKE THIS ANYWAY AND YOU CAN SEE THE HEAVIEST RIGHT  THERE OVER NORTHERN ALABAMA NORTHERN MISSISSIPPI. IN FACT THIS SUMMER AS YOU CAN SEE IN  THERE. LET'S JUST ZOOM IN ON THIS THING SEE THE REST OF THE COUNTRY. DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING REAL  HEAVY. PARTS OF MAINE ACTUALLY DID BUT YOU CAN SEE FROM WEST VIRGINIA ALL THE WAY DOWN IN THE  MISSISSIPPI, THAT'S WHERE THE MAJORITY OF THE RAIN HAS BEEN IN THAT PINK AREA IS ACTUALLY EIGHT INCHES PLUS THE RED AREAS ARE FIVE INCHES PLUS IN THAT EXTENDS INTO  PARTS OF SOUTHEASTERN TENNESSEE, SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE APPELLATION. SO NOT EVERYBODY GOT  IT ON A RAIN BUT EVERYBODY GETS SOME, AT LEAST A HALF INCH TO AN INCH AND THAT STILL A WAY TO GET  OUT OF THE DROUGHT IS TO GET STARTED AND THEN HAVE THINGS CONTINUE. AND WE HAVE ANOTHER  STORM COMING YOUR WAY THIS WEEK, MAYBE TWO OF ALL THERE'S THE JET STREAM WHEN YOU'VE BEEN  SEEING AS WE HEAD THROUGH THIS WEEK, WE'LL SEE THAT SHOT OF COLD AIR COMING IN FOR THE SECOND  HALF OF THE WEEK. IT MAY NOT A MIGHT LET UP A LITTLE BETTER AS WE HEAD INTO THE WEEKEND BUT THERE'S ANOTHER SHOT  COMING INTO THE GREAT LAKES ALL WAY DOWN INTO THE TENNESSEE VALLEY IN THE NORTHEAST AS WE  HAD AN EARLY NEXT WEEK. SO THIS IS THE CHANGING OF THE WEATHER PATTERN I THINK. WE'RE PROBABLY  GOING TO SEE A MUCH MORE WINTRY WEATHER PATTERN COAST TO COAST ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND WITH  THAT, THERES MY WEEK TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK. YOU CAN SEE MOST OF THE LOWER FORTY EIGHT  EXPECTED TO BE COLDER THAN NORMAL ALL THE WAY DOWN TO CENTRAL FLORIDA. THE ONLY ABOVE NORMAL AREAS AT NEW ENGLAND NORTHEAST FOR NEW YORK STATE ON IN THE EASTERN  PORTIONS OF CANADA AND YOU'LL EVEN TURN COLD AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. AS FAR  AS THE PRECIPITATION ABOVE NORMAL WITH THE STORM SYSTEM SITTING OVER THE SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF  CANADA. ALL THE WAY TO THE EAST COAST AND THEN DOWN INTO A SOUTHEASTERN TEXAS AND MOST OF THE  SOUTHEAST. A COUPLE OF SYSTEMS EARLY IN THE WEEK COME YOUR WAY BELOW NORMAL AND FOR THE  MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY, ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE AT NORTHWEST. AS FAR AS A THIRD OF THE OUTLOOK FOR  TEMPERATURES, YOU CAN SEE NOT A BIG DIFFERENCE THERE. I'M GOING BELOW NORMAL FOR ALL THE WAY  INTO THE EAST COAST FOR DECEMBER FOR MOST OF THE COUNTRY AS YOU CAN SEE IT'S UP THE NORTHERN  GREAT LAKES, MOST OF THE NORTHEAST AND THE FAR SOUTHEAST. AS FAR AS PRECIPITATION OVER THE NEXT  THIRTY DAYS, ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE NORTHEASTERN PLAINS, GREAT LAKES, NORTHEAST AND THEN UP AND  DOWN THE APPELLATIONS ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE CENTRAL GULF OF MEXICO. SO THAT'S SOME GOOD  NEWS FOR THE DROUGHT AREAS THERE. BELOW NORMAL FROM KANSAS DOWN IN THE MEXICO AND ABOVE  NORMAL FOR THE NORTHERN ROCKIES AND THE NORTHWESTERN PORTIONS OF THE COUNTRY ALL THE WAY  DOWN INTO CENTRAL CALIFORNIA. THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY. NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME  LOCAL FORECASTS. WE'LL HEAD TO FARMINGTON, NEW MEXICO. FIRST OF ALL, MOSTLY CLOUDY IN RATHER COLD TODAY A HIGH OF  FORTY FIVE DEGREES. HURON, SOUTH DAKOTA,  CLOUDY AND BREEZY TURNING COLDER HIGH FORTY ONE  EARLY IN THE DAY AND THEN KINGSTON, NEW YORK, MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH A FLURRY AND SPRINKLE. THE  HIGH IS 43.  

TEASE

SOLD ON A PURPLE WAVE DOT COM ONLINE AUCTION  LAST WEDNESDAY COMBINE WAS FROM SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA WENT FOR FIFTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS  THAT'S THE HIGHEST AUCTION PRICE I'VE SEEN ON AN R62 IN TWENTY THREE MONTHS. NOW IF WE STAY  WITH GLEANER HERE'S A PICTURE OF A TWENTY THIRTEEN S SIXTY SEVEN FIVE HUNDRED SEVENTEEN  ENGINE HOURS ON IT SOLD ON A FARM AUCTION LAST THURSDAY IN NORTHWEST ILLINOIS WENT FOR A  HUNDRED FIFTY TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS VERY SOLID PRICE THERE. NOW IF WE SWITCH TO GREEN THIS  TWENTY TEN JOHN DEERE NINETY FIVE SEVENTY S T S SEVEN HUNDRED TWENTY ENGINE HOURS ON IT SOLD  ON A FARM AUCTION LAST WEDNESDAY OUT IN WEST CENTRAL MINNESOTA  WENT FOR A HUNDRED TWENTY  SEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS THAT IS THE HIGHEST AUCTION PRICE OF SEEN THIS YEAR ON A NINETY FIVE  SEVENTY.

IN THE COUNTRY
IN THE COUNTRY - BROUGHT TO YOU BY KUBOTA'S BX AND L SERIES COMPACT  TRACTORS - AVAILABLE NOW WITH A SIX-YEAR LIMITED POWERTRAIN WARRANTY.   LEARN MORE TODAY AT YOUR LOCAL KUBOTA DEALER.  POTATO CHIPS HAVE BEEN A POPULAR SNACK FOR A CENTURY.  IN THE EARLY  1900S THE SNACK WAS SOLD IN TIN CONTAINERS.    THE ORIGINAL CANISTERS  THAT KEPT MUNCHIES FRESH HAVEN'T BECOME STALE FOR ONE MAN WHO HAS  AMASSED A COLLECTION OF OVER A THOUSAND PIECES OF POTATO CHIP  HISTORY.  CLIFF NAYLOR  FROM KFYR REPORTS. GREGG HALVERSON IS A POTATO CHIP CONNOISSEUR.GREGG HALVERSON:   THEY TASTE JUST AS GOOD....EATING POTATO CHIPS...YOU KNOW, THEY MAY  TASTE EVEN BETTER OUT OF A CHIP CAN.HE'S ALSO A SNACK FOOD AFICIONADO  WHEN IT COMES TO TASTE TREAT TINS. IT'S MORE OF AN OBSESSION THAN A  COLLECTION. GREG HAS AMASSED OVER A THOUSAND VINTAGE POTATO CHIP  CANISTERS.HERE'S AN INTERESTING ONE, IT WOULDN'T TAKE MANY POTATO  CHIPS TO FILL THAT CAN.  A HUNDRED YEAR'S AGO, THERE WERE HUNDRED'S OF  MOM AND POP POTATO CHIP COMPANIES.  GREGG SAYS ALMOST EVERY CITY OF  DIFFERENT OIL, A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT CUT, A LITTLE DIFFERENT SEASONING, A  LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT SALT.  THERE'S OVER A THOUSAND DIFFERENT CANS IN  THIS COLLECTION. I HAVE A NUMBER OF THESE LAYS CHIP CANS. SOME HAVE  SALTY STORIES ATTACHED TO THEM. HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE A  MANUFACTURER THAT WHEN WE WERE BOMBING THE JAPANESE TO BE CALLED JAPPS. DURING WORLD WAR TWO, THE JAPPS POTATO CHIP COMPANY WAS PEPPERED  WITH NEGATIVE STEREOTYPING.  WHAT THE JAPPS DID IS THEY CHANGED THERE  BRAND, THEY WENT FROM JAPPS TO JAYS. THIS IS JUST A SMALL PIECE OF  GREGG'S COLLECTION.  THE REST OF HIS CANISTERS ARE IN STORAGE BECAUSE  THERE ISN'T ENOUGH SHELF SPACE TO DISPLAY ALL OF THEM IN ONE PLACE. AN  EXCESS OF POTATO CHIP PAILS ISN'T PREVENTING GREGG FROM STOCKING UP  EVEN MORE MEMORABILIA. THERE'S ALWAYS ROOM FOR ONE MORE. GREGG  SEEMS TO HAVE TAKEN THE LAYS POTATO CHIP SLOGAN TO HEART, "HE CAN'T COLLECT JUST ONE."  I'M CLIFF NAYLOR REPORTING FOR AGDAY.  )

CLOSE
THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN.  FOR TYNE MORGAN, BETSY JIBBEN AND MIKE HOFFMAN, I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. HAVE A GREAT DAY. HIGH STRENGTH STEEL FOR HIGH STRENGTH DEPENDABILITY, THE CHEVY  SILVERADO IS THE OFFICIAL NEWS GATHERING VEHICLE OF AGDAY TELEVISION.
