HEADLINES

COTTON PRICES HIT FRESH MULTI YEAR HIGHS...CAN IT CONTINUE. MILK IS FACING TOUGH COMPETITION FROM OTHER BOTTLED BEVERAGES. IN AGRIBUSINESS...CAN DAIRY EXPORTS PUSH PRICES. AND GETTING HEALTHY IN THE SOUTH. AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE, LONG LASTING CHEVY SILVERADO. 

COTTON MARKETS, EQUIPMENT
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. MARKETS WILL RESUME TODAY FOLLOWING THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND, AND  COTTON GROWERS WILL BE WATCHING TO SEE IF THE RECENT PRICE RALLY CONTINUES. THE COTTON ADJUSTED WORLD PRICE HIT ITS HIGHEST MARK SINCE 2012 LAST  WEEK. CLIMBING TO NEAR 77 DOLLARS PER HUNDRED, THE RALLY COMING AS COTTON ACRES CONTINUE TO BE PLANTED.  STRONG DEMAND IN THE FACE OF STEADY TO LOWER WORLD PRODUCTION HAS PRICES STRENGTHENING. <ONE OF THE THINGS WE ARE SEEING THOUGH GLOBALLY IS THE FACT THAT COTTON DEMAND IS INCREASING  AGAIN. USDA IN THE CURRENT MARKETING YEAR HAS WORLD PRODUCTION AROUND 120 MILLION BALES, THAT'S UP ABOUT 4 PERCENT FROM WHERE WE WERE A YEAR AGO, AND I THINK WE GOT THE POTENTIAL TO  SEE FURTHER GROWTH IN CONSUMPTION> AS OF LAST WEEK ABOUT HALF OF THE CROP HAD BEEN PLANTED JUST AHEAD  OF THE FIVE YEAR AVERAGE. VIRGINIA, NORTH CAROLINA AND SOUTH CAROLINA ARE THE ONLY STATES IN THE  SOUTHEAST RUNNING BEHIND THE FIVE YEAR AVERAGE. HEAVY RAINS AND TROPICAL MOISTURE SLOWING DOWN PLANTING IN RECENT  WEEKS. STRONG PRICES AND DEMAND HAS COTTON FARMERS SEARCHING FOR  EQUIPMENT.  WITH U.S. COTTON ACRES FORECAST TO GROW,  EQUIPMENT IS GETTING  HARDER TO COME BY ESPECIALLY FOR SMALLER GROWERS. <SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE SOLD THEIR COTTON EQUIPMENT. IT'S NOT UNUSUAL TO GO DOWN THE ROAD TO SEE MODULE BUILDERS JUST PARKED FOR SALE. NOW PEOPLE WANT THEM. TO GET BACK IN THE  GAME IS SUPER SUPER TOUGH. THAT LENDS ITSELF TO THE BIG ACREAGE COTTON GROWERS. > EQUIPMENT DEALERS-- LIKE HURST FARM SUPPLY - SAY COTTON EQUIPMENT  ISN'T SITTING ON LOTS VERY LONG... ESPECIALLY THE NEW COTTON EQUIPMENT,  THAT BALES ON THE GO. <IF WE GET A TRADE IN ALL THE GOOD YEARS WHEN WE HAVE SERVICE CUSTOMERS IN  LINE WANTING ONE SO WE'LL TAKE THOSE NAMES WE'LL PUT THEM IN A HAT WILL DRAW THEM OUT WE'LL  CALL THE CUSTOMER TO PURCHASE THE MACHINE.> HE SAYS THAT INTEREST IS BLEEDING OVER TO USED, AS HE TRADED FOR 30 OF  THE NEWER HARVESTERS THIS YEAR. THOSE MACHINES WERE SOLD BEFORE  THE EQUIPMENT EVEN MADE IT TO THE DEALER LOT. MACHINERY PETE SAYS MOISTURE IS OFTEN WHAT DICTATES EQUIPMENT  INTEREST IN AREAS LIKE TEXAS.    THE MOST SEARCHED MONTH FOR USED COTTON EQUIPMENT AT MACHINERYPETE.COM  WAS IN OCTOBER AND I FOUND IT INTERESTING THE FOLKSIER HURT THEY WERE MUNCHING THAT WAS THE  LAST RAIN GOOD RAIN THEY HAD.> 

MORE TRADE TALKS WITH CHINA
MEANWHILE THE CHINA TRADE DISCUSSION CONTINUES. COMMERCE SECRETARY WILBUR ROSS IS SET TO VISIT CHINA AT THE END OF  THIS WEEK...JUNE 2ND THROUGH 4TH.  HIS DELEGATION FOCUSING ON RESOLVING TRADE ISSUES BETWEEN THE TWO  NATIONS. LAST WEEK SEVERAL REPORTS SAY CHINA COULD DOUBLE THE AMOUNT OF AG  GOODS PURCHASED EACH YEAR...ALONG WITH  50 TO 60 BILLION DOLLARS IN  ENERGY PURCHASES FROM THE U.S. ON THE TRADE FRONT, DAIRY EXPORTS ARE PICKING UP PACE. THAT'S HELPING DRIVE MILK PRICES TO NEAR BREAK-EVEN LEVELS FOR PRODUCERS.  BUT COMPETITION IS TOUGH IN THE DAIRY AISLE. A GLASS OF MILK NOW FACES MORE BOTTLED BEVERAGE OPTIONS THAN EVER.AND AS TYNE MORGAN REPORT IT'S A TREND THE INDUSTRY IS FIGHTING TO  CHANGE.  

MILK’S BIGGEST COMPETITOR
A TRIP TO THE GROCERY STORE OR CONVENIENCE STORE TODAY CAN OFTEN BE COMPLICATED, WITH CONSUMERS OFTEN OVERWHELMED BY THE CHOICE.  SO WE  LOOK  AT  THE  BEVERAGE CHOICES  TODAY.  WE  ARE  LIVING IN&n​bsp; A  CULTURE OF  CHOICE  AND THAT  MEANS  FOR FOOD  MILK.SINCE THE 1970S, FLUID MILK CONSUMPTION HSA DROPPED 11 GALLONS PER PERSON. AND MILK'S BIGGEST COMPETITOR TODAY MAY SURPRISE YOU.<WATER IS OUR NUMBER ONE COMPETITOR...WATER>BOTTLE WATER CONSUMPTION WAS FORECAST TO REACH 391 BILLIOIN LITERS BY 2017. A SHARP JUMP FROM THE 212 BILLION LITERS CONSUMED IN 2007.WHILE BOTTLED WATER IS GROWING IN POPULARITY, IDFA SAYS ITS LOOKING INTO  CHANGES IN CONSUMER BUYING HABITS. TODAY  WE HAVE  OVER  15 CHOICES.  WE  HAVE A  CHANGE  IN SOCIETY.  WE'​RE  NOT SITTING  DOWN  FOR BREAKFAST  LIKE  WE WERE  IN  THE ​;70S  WITH  EGGS AND  BACON  A GLASS  OF  MILK OR  MAYBE &nb​sp;LIKE  WE WERE  IN  THE 80S  OR  90S WITH  A  BOWL OF ​; CEREAL  AND BANANA  AND  GLASS MILK  AND  MILK OVER  THE  ​SYRUP. WE'RE  NOW  GRAB AND  GO. > IT'S A GRAB AND GO MENTALITY THAT INDUSTRIES - LIKE DAIRY- ARE CATERING TO WITH MILK PRODUCTS THAT HAVE EXTENDED SHELF LIFE AND ARE EASY TO CONSUME ON THE RUN. I  THINK WE'RE  TRYING  TO SEE  THAT  WE'RE SEEING  IT  IN THE  YOGURT  SIDE MORE​  THE  MORE DRINKABLE  YOGURTS.  WE'RE SEEING  THAT  AND SQUEEZE &​nbsp;POUCHES. >IT'S NOT JUST A CHANGE IN THE PRODUCT, BUT ALSO A CHANGE IN THE PACKAGING, ADDING TO THE NEED TO COMPETE WITH BOTTLED WATER'S CHANGE IN APPEARANCE. DO  YOU WANT  IN  A SQUARE  BOTTON  OR DO  YOU  WANT IN  IN  A ROUND  BOTTLE?  THE E  DO  YOU WANT  O​NE  WITH A  FLIP  LID. YOU  WANT  ONE WITH  A  SCREW LID&nbs​p; THOSE  ALL THINGS  UNTIL  WE STEP  BACK  AND THINK  ABOUT &nbs​p;THOSE. THAT'S  INNOVATION  NOT JUST  IN  THE PRODUCT.  THAT'S  IN​NOVATION IN  PACKAGING.  AND WE  GOT  TO THINK  ABOUT  THAT IN &n​bsp;TERMS  OF DAIRY.>THE CONFUSION WITH CONSUMERS ALSO STARTS AT HOME. A RECENT SURVEY BY THE INNOVATION CENTER FOR U-S DAIRY FOUND 7 PERCENT OF ALL AM ERICAN ADULTS THINK CHOCOLATE MILK COMES FROM BROWN COWS. THAT'S 16 POING 4 MILLION CONSUMERS WHO HAVE NO IDEA HOW THEIR MILK IS PRODUCED.<SO WHAT OUR FOCUS HSA BEEN, AS WE SEE THE RISE OF THESE IMITATION DAIRY PREODUCTS MADE FROM PLANT SOURCES, THAT PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT THEY ARE NOT GETTING THE SAME AMOUTN OF NUTRITION WHEN THEY BUY ALMOND BEVERAGE OR A NUT JICE AS WHEN THEY ARE BUYUING REAL MILK>ITS THE WHOLESOME PRODUCTS DAIRY GROUPS SAY GIVE THEIR INDUSTRY A COMPETITIVE EDGE<AND A LOT OF HAS TO DO WITH MAKING CERTAIN THAT WE HAVE THE BEST AVAILABLE PRODUCT IN THE PLACES THAT PEOPLE ARE GOING TO CONSUME IT WHETHER THAT'S IN THE SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM AT SPORTING EVENTS IT'S REMINDING PEOPLE THAT MILK IS A FOOD AND IT PROVIDES A UNIQUE NUTRITIONAL PROFILE THAT A LOT OF OTHER FOODS CAN'T REPLICATE> DYKES SAYS IT'S A CONVERSATION ALSO ENTERING THE FARM BILL, WITH ID-D-F-A PUSHING TO GET MORE DAIRY INTO SNAP.

 

 THERE'S NOTHING  AS  NUTRITIOUS AS  A  GLASS OF  MILK.  ONLY ONE  IN  10&n​bsp;AMERICANS  ARE  GETTING THE  RECOMMENDED  THREE SERVINGS  A  DAY OF&nbs​p; DAIRY  ABOUT NEARLY  HALF  THE HOUSEHOLD  SNAP  RECIPIENT HOUSEHOLDS &nb​sp;HAVE  CHILDREN. SO  WE  THINK IT'S  GOOD  POLICY WE  THINK &nbs​p;IT'S GOOD  NUTRITION. >EXPANDING CHOICE THAT COULD SERVE UP NEW OPTIONS TO ALL CONSUMERS, WITH THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF DRIVING NEW DEMAND AROUND THE GLOBE.

H2A VISA
LAWMAKERS ARE SET TO VOTE ON PROPOSED IMMIGRATION LEGISLATION NEXT  MONTH...FOLLOWING A PUSH FROM THE FREEDOM CAUCUS DURING THE RECENT  FARM BILL VOTE. THE ADMINISTRATION ALSO GETTING ON BOARD PROPOSING RULES TO  STREAMLINE THE H-2A VISA PROGRAM FOR AGRICULTURAL WORKERS. THE ADMINISTRATION RELEASING A STATEMENT LATE LAST WEEK THAT IT'S  WORKING ON RULES AND NEW INCENTIVES FOR AGRIBUSINESSES AND GROWERS.  IT ALSO PUTS USDA IN CHARGE OF THE H-2A PROGRAM RATHER THAN THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR.  THE GOAL IS TO FINALIZE THE CHANGES IN TIME FOR THE 2020 GROWING  SEASON. <"AS EVERYTHING IN POLITICS, THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS. BUT WE ARE HEARTENED AT UNITED FRESH BY THE ADMINISTRATION'S ACTIONS TO TAKE SOME STEPS TO IMPROVE THE H2A PROGRAM.">DETAILS ARE STILL COMING OUT. WESTERN GROWERS SAY THEY'RE CONCERNED E-VERIFY MAY BE PART OF THE PROPOSAL. < IF YOU ENACT E-VERIFY, BEFORE YOU ENACT LEGISLATION WHICH GIVES US INADEQUATE, UNSTABLE WORKFORCE, YOU LOSE ALL THOSE PEOPLE TO E-VERIFY AND YOU'RE OUT OF BUSINESS. WHY WOULD YOU PUT THE CART BEFORE THE HORSE? 10"><WE HAVE NEVER OBJECTED E-VERIFY, WE SUPPORT E-VERIFY, CAUSE WE WANT OUR WORKERS TO BE LEGAL. BUT GIVE US A LEGAL TOOL TO HIRE THESE WORKERS SO WHEN WE GO THROUGH E-VERIFY, WE DON'T HAVE TO DISCHARGE THESE PEOPLE 30 >THE AGENCIES DID NOT SPECIFY WHEN PROPOSED CHANGES COULD OCCUR.

CROP COMMENTS
LETS CHECK BACK WITH FARM COUNTRY AND TODAY'S CROP COMMENTS WITH METEROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN. GOOD MORNING MIKE. GOOD MORNING, CLINTON.  JASON GREVE SENDING US A PHOTO OF PLANT EMERGENCE IN MCCARTYVILLE,  OHIO HE PLANTED ON MAY 7.  THE DROUGHT MONITOR SHOWS NONE OF OHIO IS ABNORMALLY DRY. OVER IN UNION COUNTY, KENTUCKY, LAUREN TURLEY TELLING US SHE'S BAILED  WHEAT AND RYEGRASS HAY. THANKFULLY, SHE GOT IT IN BALES BEFORE RAIN FELL IN THE AREA.  NONE OF KENTUCKY IS ADNORMALLY DRY.  AD LIB  AND NOW LET'S LOOK AT SOME HOMETOWN TEMPS.  

TEASE
WHEN WE COME BACK, A LOOK CLOSER LOOK AT NOT JUST DAIRY DEMAND BUT  DAIRY MARKETS.  MIKE NORTH JOINS US WITH MORE. AND LATER, WE'RE OFF TO DINNER IN TENNESSEE WHERE ONE TOWN IS TAKING  IT'S UNHEALTHY CULTURE HEAD ON. 

AGRIBUSINESS
<HERE NOW WITH MIKE NORTH OF COMMODITY RISK MANAGEMENT GROUP BOUGHT THE INDIANAPOLIS  500 SPEEDWAY AND ON RACE DAY OF COURSE IT'S MILK THAT CELEBRATED THAT WINNING GLASS OF MILK  HANDED OVER TO THE WINNER OF THE RACE. BUT MILK IN 2018 HAS HAD HEADWINDS TO SAY THE LEAST AS WE LOOK AT THE CHANGING LANDSCAPE OF DAIRY. HOWEVER AS OF LATE WE'VE KIND OF SEEN MILK  PRICES TICK HIGHER. WHAT IS CAUSING PRICES TO CLIMB AT THIS POINT. EXPORTS HAVE BEEN THE  LEADING STORY ON THAT CONVERSATION. THAT'S BEEN HELPED BY THE FACT THAT NEW ZEALAND HAD A LITTLE SMALLER PRODUCTION YEAR THAN WHAT WAS EARLIER ANTICIPATED. IF YOU GO BACK TO LAST FALL THEY  HAD A LITTLE BIT OF A ROUGH SUMMER THERE AS AS WE CAME THROUGH DECEMBER JANUARY  PRODUCTION FELL OFF THAT FELL SHORT. OPENED UP THE DOOR FOR OTHER PEOPLE TO PARTICIPATE. EUROPE  AND US SPECIFICALLY AND THE US PICKED UP A LITTLE BIT MORE MARKET SHARE IN TERMS OF DAIRY EXPORT DEMAND THAN WHAT WE'VE HAD IN THE PAST. RIGHT NOW WE'RE LOOKING AT ON A SOLID BASIS  16 17 PERCENT OF U.S. MILK SUPPLY ALLOCATED TOWARDS EXPORT. THAT'S A BIG STEP FORWARD. HOW  IS THAT TRANSLATING INTO PRICE THOUGH. ARE WE SEEN BREAKEVEN PRICES FOR PRODUCERS AT THIS POINT. WE'RE NOT WE ULTIMATELY ARE STILL STUCK IN AREAS THAT ARE SLIGHTLY BELOW BREAKEVEN FOR  MOST. BUT AS WE GET TOWARDS SUMMER MILK PRICES THERE ARE SHOWING US VALUES THAT ARE AT OR  ABOVE BREAKEVEN. SO THERE IS A LITTLE PROMISE ON THE HORIZON REALLY QUICKLY FOR PRODUCERS OUT  THERE. ARE YOU KIND OF INVITING THEM TO GO AHEAD AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SOME OF THESE PRICES  ARE SAYING HOLD OFF WE ARE WE HAVE TO RESPECT THE FACT THAT UPPER 16 17 DOLLAR MILK IN THE LAST  SEVERAL YEARS HAS BEEN HARD TO BREAK THROUGH. SO SOME UNDERS SOME PROTECTION UNDER THIS MARKET MAKES GOOD SENSE. MIKE NORTH THANK YOU SO MUCH. STAY WITH US WE'LL BE BACK MORE  IN JUST A MOMENT> 



WEATHER
ADLIB

TEASE
AND LATER THIS TENNESSEE TOWN IS TRYING TO CHANGE IT'S UNHEALTHY  CULTURE AND EXTENTION IS HELPING. 

DAIRY REPORT
IN THE DAIRY REPORT, MEXICO'S PRESIDENT ENRIQUE PENA NIETO EXPRESSING  OPTIMISM LATE LAST WEEK FOR RE-WORKING THE 24 YEAR OLD NAFTA  AGREEMENT  ONE OF THE BIGGEST STICKING POINTS REMAINS MARKET ACCESS IN CANADA  FOR THE U.S. DAIRY.  INDUSTRY EXPERTS SAY THEY'RE HOPEFUL DAIRY WON'T BE LEFT OUT...BUT  KNOW CANADA ISN'T GOING TO FIX PRICES HERE AT HOME. <"THE PRODUCERS I TALK TO IN CANADA SAY WE ARE NOT HERE TO SUPPORT THE OVERALL PRODUCTION OF  THE U.S. MILK SUPPLY. CANADA IS NOT NECESSARILY THE SAVIOR FOR U.S.  MILK PRODUCTION. THERE ARE CERTAINLY OTHER COUNTRIES WE CAN EXPORT PRODUCTS FROM. CANADA ISN'T NECESSARILY THE 'END ALL BE ALL' FOR SOLVING THE OVER SUPPLY OF MILK."> WHILE EXPORTS ARE PART OF THE PROFIT PICTURE ON U.S. DAIRIES...FEED  COSTS ARE ALSO AN IMPORTANT COMPONENT. WHILE GRAIN PRICES RALLY, ANALYSTS SAY DAIRY PRODUCERS NEED TO BE  PAYING ATTENTION TO THEIR FEED SUPPLIES AND FEED COSTS IN 2018. <"PROFITABILITY IS A PROFIT OF FEED COSTS LARGELY ON THE INPUT SIDE AND THEN MILK PRICE. IF WE HAVE  A RUNAWAY ON THE GRAIN MARKET, THAT'S GOING TO KEEP PRESSURE ON THAT MARKETABILITY ALL THROUGH THE SUMMER. ONE THING THAT WILL BE HELPFUL IS A GREAT CROP YEAR AND ABUDANT SUPPLY OF  FEED STOCK. IF THERE'S PLENTY OF FEED IN THE COUNTRY, THAT WILL HELP MAINTAIN BETTER PROFITABILITY  GOING INTO THE FOURTH QUARTER.">  NORTH SAYS HE HOPES EXPORTS WILL GIVE THE MARKET A NUDGE TO KEEP THIRD QUARTER PRICES STRONGER AS WELL. 

TEASE
WHEN WE COME BACK - TRYING TO IMPROVE LIFE - THROUGH BETTER HEALTH. <  I'M CHARLES DENNEY. A TENNESSEE COMMUNITY LOOKS TO BUILD A CULTURE  OF HEALTH. PICKETT COUNTY TENNN IS SELECTED TO BE A PART OF A  NATIONWIDE PROGRAM ON IMPROVED LIVING. THAT STORY NEXT ON AGDAY.> 

IN THE COUNTRY
IT'S AN UNFORTUNATE FACT, BUT STATES IN THE SOUTHEAST ARE OFTEN AT THE  BOTTOM OF THE LIST FOR "HEALTHIEST COMMUNITIES." BUT SOME RURAL TENNESSEE TOWNS ARE TRYING TO CHANGE THAT TREND. THEY'RE  LOOKING TO BUILD A "CULTURE OF HEALTH." AND EXTENSION IS HELPING.IN THIS REPORT PROVIDED BY THE U-T INSTITUTE OF AGRICULTURE, CHARLES DENNEY SHOWS US HOW PARTNERSHIPS ARE ENCOURAGE FITNESS AND BETTER  NUTRITION. A LIBRARY DOESN'T HAVE TO BE A QUIET PLACE ALL THE TIME. THESE SECOND GRADERS AT PICKETT  COUNTY K-THRU 8 SCHOOL SQUEEZE IN A LITTLE WIGGLING AND DANCING BETWEEN BOOK LESSONS. THE VIDEO GAME WITH MOVEMENT IS CALLED A "BRAIN BREAK." DEANNA DICKERSON SAYS  WHEN YOU'VE BEEN SITTING AT A DESK ALL DAY, YOU NEED SOME PHYSICAL FREEDOM. (DEANNA DICKERSON) "WELL, IT'S A LOT OF FUN BECAUSE YOU'VE BEEN WORKING HARD ALL DAY AND IT FEELS LIKE YOU DESERVE IT. YEAH." (HUNTER NICHOLAS) "I WANT TO DO IT. YOU DO? WHY DO YOU WANT TO DO IT? IT'S FUN." EDUCATORS HERE SAY A PHYSICALLY HEALTHY CHILD WILL LEARN MORE EFFECTIVELY. (STEPHANIE NORRIS) "AS THEY FIRST COME INTO THE LIBRARY, I ENCOURAGE THEM TO ' OKAY, WE'RE  GOING TO GET UP AND MOVE OUR BODIES' TO GET OUR MINDS FRESH SO WE CAN ENJOY WHAT WE'RE GOING TO BE LEARNING IN THE LIBRARY TODAY." STEPHANIE NORRIS IS A COMMUNITY LEADER FOR A HEALTH-RELATED PROGRAM COMING SOON TO HER  HOMETOWN. HERE PICKETT COUNTY WILL PARTNER WITH THE NATIONAL 4-H COUNCIL AND THE ROBERT WOOD  JOHNSON FOUNDATION, THE NATION'S LARGEST HEALTH PHILANTHROPY. (CHARLES DENNEY) "PICKETT WAS ONE OF THREE TENNESSEE COUNTIES SELECTED FOR THIS PROGRAM.  THE OTHER TWO ARE COFFEE AND MEIGS. COMMUNITY LEADERS HERE BELIEVE THIS AREA HAS THE  POTENTIAL TO BUILD A CULTURE OF HEALTHY LIVING." UT AND TSU EXTENSION HAVE PROGRAMS LIKE "WALK ACROSS TENNESSEE" - ENCOURAGING PEOPLE  TO GET MOVING.  BUT SOME RURAL AREAS DON'T HAVE HEALTH CLUBS OR A LOT OF PLACES WHERE PEOPLE CAN EXERCISE. "HEALTH IS A MAJOR ISSUE FOR EVERYONE." UT EXTENSION AGENT AMANDA WOODY WILL USE GRANT FUNDS TO DEVELOP AN ACTION PLAN FOR PICKETT. A LOCAL COALITION WILL ADDRESS ISSUES LIKE FITNESS FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS, PREVENTION OF  CHRONIC DISEASES AND REDUCING HEALTH CARE COSTS. "I'M REALLY EXCITED TO DO A COMMUNITY NEEDS ASSESSMENT TO SEE WHAT THE PEOPLE HERE THINK  THAT WE NEED. SOME PEOPLE MAY THINK WE NEED TO FOCUS ON PHYSICAL ACTIVITY, SOME PEOPLE MAY THINK WE NEED TO FOCUS ON NUTRITION AND BETTER EATING." ADD MENTAL WELL-BEING, AND ALL THREE AREAS ARE IMPORTANT FOR THE FUTURE OF THIS COMMUNITY. AND HERE IS YOUR FUTURE – HEALTHY KIDS WHO CAN BECOME HEALTHY ADULTS. OPPORTUNITY,  POTENTIAL AND A CHANGED CULTURE. THIS IS CHARLES DENNEY REPORTING. ) THIS PROGRAM WITH THE ROBERT WOOD JOHNSON FOUNDATION LOOKS TO IMPROVE HEALTH IN A THOUSAND COMMUNITIES ACROSS FIVE STATES - TENNESSEE, MARYLAND, MINNESOTA, SOUTH DAKOTA AND UTAH. 

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.
