HEADLINES
TODAY ON AGDAY - THE CAMPAIGNING IS OVER.  HOW WILL THE RESULTS IMPACT THE DAIRY  SECTOR? THE U.S. DAIRY INDUSTRY COULD BE THE ONLY MAJOR DAIRY PRODUCING COUNTRY TO GROW PRODUCTION OVER THE NEXT TWELVE MONTHS WE’LL HAVE THAT STORY COMING UP TODAY ON AGDAY COTTON CROPS IN OKLAHOMA HIT A NEW MARK. THE I-80 HARVEST TOUR STOPS IN NORTHWEST INDIANA. WE WANT TO RUN AND TRY TO GET AS MUCH DONE BEFORE THE NEXT RAIN  STORM. IN AGRIBUSINESS... WE KNOW THE GLOOM AND DOOM WE KNOW ALL THE FINACIAL STRESS SO LET’S THINIK FARTHER AHEAD HOW CAN WE SOLVE THIS. AND THIS CAMPAIGN MAY HAVE SEEMED WILD BUT SEE HOW ZOO ANIMALS VOTED  DURING THE ELECTION.  AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE, LONG LASTING CHEVY  SILVERADO.

DAIRY RELYING ON NEXT ADMIN TO BOLSTER FOREIGN DEMAND
GOOD MORNING I'M BETSY JIBBEN. CLINTON GRIFFITHS IS ON ASSIGNMENT. THE  2016 ELECTION CYCLE NOW TURNS TO TRANSITION OF POWER.  IN AGRICULTURE,  TRADE WAS A PARAMOUNT CAMPAIGN ISSUE. NOW AG GROUPS WANT CAMPAIGN  RHETORIC TO TURN TO ACTION. AS TYNE MORGAN REPORTS, U-S DAIRY EXPORTS  ARE RELYING ON THE NEXT ADMINISTRATION TO BOLSTER FOREIGN DEMAND. THANKS, BETSY. SUPPLY AND DEMAND HAS BEEN A MAJOR TOPIC AT THE 2016  FARM JOURNAL'S MILK BUSINESS CONFERENCE HERE IN LAS VEGAS. SPOKE  WITH SENIOR DAIRY ANALYST FROM RABOBANK ABOUT THE FUTURE. HE SAYS  WHILE THE NEXT 12 MONTHS WILL BE FAIRLY HIGH PRESSURE FOR BOTH SUPPLY  AND DEMAND IN THE DAIRY INDSUTRY, THE U-S WILL BE ON THE ONLY MAJOR  DAIRY PRODUCING COUNTRY TO GROW PRODUCTION OVER THE NEXT 12  MONTHS, WHICH IS A SHIFT AWAY FROM THE ABUNDANT PRODUCTION WE'VE  SEEN AROUND THE GLOBE OVER THE PAST YEAR.  "WE'VE SEEN EU QUOATAS COME OFF, WE SAW NEW ZEALAND COME ONTO THE MARKET BY 50  PERCENT, THAT'S A MAJOR SUPPLY SHIFT. SO DEMAND HAS CONTINUED TO CHUG ON THROUGH THIS ENTIRE  PERIOD. BUT WE SAW THIS HUGE SWATH OF MILK COME ONTO THE MARKET AND REALLY SUPPRESS  PRICES. DEMAND HAS BEEN THERE ALL ALONG  BAILEY SAYS LOOKING LONGER TERM, THE PRICE STORY IS A FRIENDLY ONE FOR  DAIRY, THANKS TO STRONG DEMAND POTENTIAL FROM BOTH INTERNATIONAL  AND DOMESTIC MARKETS.  WE CAN'T REALLY RATIONALIZE WHERE ALL THIS SUPPLY IS GOING TO BE COMING FROM THAT  WE'RE GOING TO BE NEEDING OVER NEXT 10 YEARS. IF YOU OOK  MARKET TO MARKET, IT'S TOUGH TO  GROW MILK SUPPLY. THE U.S. IS GOING TO BE ONE OF THE FEW MARKETS WHERE WE HAVE THE LAND,  THE INDUSTRY, THE FEED TO GROW ENOUGH SUPPLY TO MEET DEVELOPING MARKET DEMAND. BUT WE  ALSO HAVE A GREAT MARKET HERE AT HOME. > BAILEY SAYS WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE EXPANSION OF PRODUCTION IN THE  MIDWESET, WE COULD SEE ADDITIONAL MILK PLANTS AND OTHER  INFRASTRUCTURE COME ONLINE TO HELP PROCESS THE GROWING SUPPLY IN  THE U-S.  BUT ONE CHALLENGE FOR THE DAIRY INDUSTRY IS THE STRENGTH OF  THANKS TYNE. 

DAIRY DOUBTING TPP
WHILE MANY OF THE MAIN-STREAM AG GROUPS SUPPORT THE TRANS PACIFIC  PARTNERSHIP TRADE DEAL, THERE IS A SEGMENT OF THE DAIRY INDUSTRY  THAT'S NOT SO CERTAIN OF THE BENEFITS OF T-P-P. THE WISCONSIN FARMERS UNION SURVEYED A THOUSAND DAIRY PRODUCERS.  THEIR RESULTS SHOW 80-PERCENT OF RESPONDENTS THINK T-P-P SHOULD BE  REJECTED UNTIL MILK IMPORT CONCERNS ARE RESOLVED. W-F-U SAYS THE TRADE DEAL WOULD OPEN THE FLOOD GATES TO LOW-COST  MILK CONCENTRATES FROM NEW ZEALAND. THOSE PRODUCTS - THEY FEAR - WOULD REPLACE WISCONSIN MILK IN CHEESE  PRODUCTION.THE DEAL WOULD GIVE U-S DAIRY PRODUCERS ACCESS TO THE OTHER ELEVEN  NATIONS IN THE T-P-P LIKE JAPAN.  BUT THIS SURVEY REVEALS CONCERNS THAT SOME DAIRY FARMERS HAVE ABOUT  CURRENCY MANIPULATION IN THAT ASIAN NATION. OTHER GROUPS - LIKE DAIRY FARMERS OF AMERICA - SAY THE T-P-P WILL BE  GOOD FOR THE U-S DAIRY SECTOR - WITH BETTER ACCESS AND LOWER TARIFFS - TO SEVERAL GROWING ECONOMIES. "EXPORTS HAVE BECOME A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF THE U-S DAIRY INDUSTRY. WE'VE EXPORTED  APPROXIMATELY 15% OF MILK PRODUCTION LAST FEW YEARS.  AND THAT NUMBER CAN GROW IN THE TRANS  PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP MARKETING AREA. WITH ALL THE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE, AND INCREASED DAIRY CONSUMPTION, ESPECIALLY IN SOUTHEAST ASIA, AND OTHER AREAS OF THE BROADER T-P-P AREA, IT'S  GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR U-S DAIRY FARMERS."

GOOD BEEF, PORK EXPORTS IN SEPTEMBER
IN OTHER EXPORT NEWS - SEPTEMBER WAS ANOTHER GOOD MONTH FOR  SHIPMENTS OF U-S BEEF AND PORK. THE U-S MEAT EXPORT FEDERATION SAYS OVERALL BEEF EXPORTS BY VOLUME  ARE 27-PERCENT HIGHER THAN A YEAR AGO. THE PUSH HIGHER WAS LED BY HUGE GROWTH IN ASIAN MARKETS.  EXPORT  VOLUMES TO JAPAN INCREASED 49-PERCENT FROM A YEAR AGO. SOUTH KOREA  IS UP 75-PERCENT. AS FAR AS PORK EXPORTS...THEY'RE UP SEVEN PERCENT IN VOLUME FROM A YEAR AGO. PORK SHIPMENTS TO MEXICO ARE UP 14-PERCENT FROM A YEAR AGO.

COTTON HARVEST UPDATE
COTTON HARVEST IS JUST OVER HALWAY COMPLETE WITH 56 PERCENT OF THE  COTTON CROP OUT OF THE GROUND. THAT'S 4 POINTS BELOW THE 5-YEAR- AVERAGE.USDA SAYS LOUSIANA IS COMPLETE WITH ARKANSAS NOT FAR BEHIND.  ALABAMA AND GEORGIA MAKING BIG GAINS LAST WEEK, BOTH NOW AHEAD OF  THEIR STATE'S 5-YEAR AVERAGE.TEXAS IS LAGGING - BEHIND THE 5-YEAR-AVERAGE BY 12 POINTS.  OKLAHOMA IS ONE STATE PROJECTED TO HAVE A RECORD COTTON CROP.  OKLAHOMA STATE COTTON SPECIALISTS SAY  THEY'RE ANTICIPATING AN OUTSTANDING DRYLAND AND IRRGATED COTTON  CROP. THAT'S THANKS TO GOOD RAINFALL AND COOLER TEMPERATURES  THROUGHOUT THE SEASON. THE CROP DIDN'T NEED AS MUCH IRRIGATION AS  WELL."WE'RE LOOKING AT THE USDA NASS PRODUCTION CROP PRODUCTION REPORT. THEY HAVE US AT  UNDER  300 THOUSAND ACRES TO BE HARVESTED. WE PLANTED CLOSE TO  300 THOUSAND. THEY'RE TELLING US  WE HAVE 570 THOUSAND BALE CROP THIS YEAR. IT'S HUGE CORP AND THE LARGEST IN DECADES ACROSS  THE STATE. WE'RE PLEASED WITH WHAT WE GOT,"> BOMAN SAYS THE COOLER TEMPERATURES CREATED SOME DISEASE IN THE  CROP. HOWEVER, HE'S CONFIDENT THE STATE COULD SEE RECORD FIBER QUALITY.  THAT WILL PUT MORE MONEY INTO GROWER'S POCKETS. 

I-80 HARVEST
THE I-80 HARVEST TOUR - SPONSORED BY THE ENLIST WEED CONTROL  SYSTEM FROM DOW AGROSCIENCES - COMBINING THE PROVEN CONTROL OF A  NEW 2,4-D AND GLYPHOSATE.  TAKE CONTROL OF TOUGH WEEDS LIKE NEVER  BEFORE.  THE I-80 HARVEST TOUR STOPS IN NORTHWEST INDIANA.  THE HOOSIER STATE  HAS 87 PERCENT OF CORN AND 91 PERCENT OF SOYBEANS OUT OF THE  GROUND. BUT THIS YEAR DIDN'T COME WITHOUT ITS WEATHER EXTREMES.  HARVEST FOR THE PARKERS IS A FAMILY AFFAIR.  YOU SPEND HOLIDAYS TOGETHER AND YOU FARM TOGETHER ALL DAY TOO,""I RUN THE DRIER. JANE AND I DO AND I'M THE GOPHER. IF I NEED TO GET SOMETHING, WELL I GO AND  GET IT!"WHILE HARVEST HELP IS THE SAME FOR THIS FAMILY COME FALL.  THE PARKERS KNOW EVERY CROP YEAR IS DIFFERENT.  "WE'VE DEALT WITH EVERY CONDITION YOU CAN DEAL WITH THIS YEAR,"TOM PARKER SAYS THE AREA EXPERIENCED A DROUGHT..  HAIL AND A RAIN EVENT- LEADING TO A FLASH FLOOD... "THE DROUGHT HURT THINGS EARLY. WE WENT ALMOST A MONTH WITHOUT ANY RAIN. THEN WHEN WE GOT  RAIN IT OPENED UP AND WE GOT AROUND 15 INCHES OF RAIN IN A WEEK,"PARKER SAYS CORN HANDLED THE WEATHER THE WORST. BUT HE STILL ENDED  HARVEST WITH AN AVERAGE CORN CROP AND SLIGHTLY ABOVE AVERAGE BEAN  CROP.  HOWEVER, HE IS DRYING ALMOST ALL OF HIS SOYBEANS.  "I KNOW SOME PEOPLE HAVE BEEN STUCK. BUT IT LOOKS LIKE WE'LL HAVE A GOOD OR BETTER BEAN  CROP THAN WE'VE EVER HAD,"SCOTT IS ONE FARMER WHO IS EXPERIENCING SOME HOLDUPS THIS YEAR.  "IT'S BEEN A STRUGGLE THIS SPRING,"THAT'S CONTINUED INTO THE FALL WITH STUCK MACHINERY AND TO WET FIELDS.  HE DOESN'T HAVE A DRIER OR A BIN. SO HE'S WAITING ON MOTHER NATURE TO  DRY THE CROP. "WE WANT TO RUN AND GET AS MUCH DONE BEFORE HTE NEXT RAIN STORM,"  DESPITE THE WEATHER EXTREMES THIS YEAR..  "RIGHT AFTER I PLANTED THEM, IT RAINED. THEN IT GOT COME FOR 10 DAYS. THEN THEY DIDN'T WANT TO  COME OUT OF THE GROUND."HE SAYS SOYBEANS YIELDS ARE EXCELLENT.  "THEY'RE DOING LIKE 80 BUSHEL PER ACRE,""SO FAR IT'S BETTER THAN I EXPECTED. I EXPECTED A POOR CROP BUT EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE  AVERAGE OR BETTER,"THE HICCUPS FARM FAMILIES ARE WRAPPING UP ANOTHER YEAR AND ARE  THANKFUL TO FARM AGAIN..  THE PARKERS HAVE FINISHED HARVEST. SA-PORE-SKI STILL HAS SOME GROUND  TO COVER. BOTH FARMERS SAY THEY'VE HEARD OF SOME MOLD AND DISEASE IN THE AREA  DUE TO RAIN.

CROP COMMENTS
"CROP COMMENTS IS POWERED BY RESICORE HERBICIDE FOR CORN, FROM  DOW AGROSCIENCES."  LET'S CHECK ON SOME OF THOSE FIELDS CONDITIONS. MIKE HOFFMAN HAS  DETAILS IN CROP COMMENTS, MIKE. GOOD MORNING, BETSY. LET'S START OFF IN BELLWOOD, NEBRASKA.  SAME MORSE JUST FINISHED UP HARVEST.  HE SAYS IRRIGATED YIELDS ARE AVERAGE IN HIS AREA. HOWEVER, BEANS WERE  REALLY TOUGH.  USDA SAYS 96 PERCENT OF NEBRASKA SOYBEANS AND 84 OF CORN IS OUT OF  THE GROUND.  OVER IN IRELAND, INDIANA.  SAM EBENKAMP FINISHED UP HARVEST ON SUNDAY.  SAM IS PLEASED WITH HOW HARVEST TURNED OUT. YIELDS ARE AVERAGE.  HOWEVER RUST IN THE CORN CROP CAUSED SOME PROBLEMS IN HIS AREA.  AND TAKING A LOOK AT THE WEATHER MAP BOY NOT A LOT GOING ON THROUG  THE MAJOR PARTS OF THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY STILL SOME RAIN IN THE  EAST AND THE SOUTH WE'LL LET YOU KNOW WHERE THAT'S HEADED NEXT  COMING UP WITH MY FORECAST BUT NOW HERE ARE SOME HOMETOWN TEMPS

TEASE
NEXT IN AGRIBUSINESS - TYNE MORGAN RETURNS.  SHE'LL FOCUS ON FINDING  NEW WAYS TO GROW DURING ECONOMIC HEADWINDS. SEE HOW A WEAK U-S DOLLAR IS HELPING TO KEEP WEST COAST PORTS BUSIER THAN USUAL. AND THERE APPEARS TO BE POLITICS IN EVERYTHING WE DO - INCLUDING A TRIP  TO THE ZOO. DETAILS AS WE HEAD IN THE COUNTRY.

FLOOR OF THE CME
AGRIBUSINESS TODAY, BROUGHT TO YOU BY YAMAHA - MAKERS OF VIKING SIDE- BY-SIDES.  YAMAHA - REAL WORLD TOUGH.  IN AGRIBUSINESS TODAY - HOW DID GRAIN MARKETS FARE ON ELECTION DAY?  DETAILS NOW FROM THE CME. THE ELECTION DID HAVE A ROLE THAT PLAY TODAY BUT REALLY ALL EYES ARE ON  WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN TOMORROW WITH THE USDA PRODUCTION REPORTS,  WHICH OF COURSE IN FACT CORN AND SOYBEANS MORE THAN THEY IMPACT  WHEAT. OVERALL, A VERY POSITIVE DAY, ONE WHICH IMPLIES WE'VE SEEN SOME  HARVEST LOWS ALREADY AND WE CAN SEE THE MARKET CONTINUE TO RALLY  OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF SESSIONS. 

AGRIBUSINESS
HOW CAN A FARMER GROW WHEN GOING-UP AGAINST THE STRONG ECONOMIC  HEADWINDS WE'VE FACED IN RECENT YEARS? TYNE MORGAN IS DOING DOUBLE-DUTY FOR US TODAY...AND OFFERS SOME  POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS. HERE NOW WITH STEVE NICHOLSON OF RABO AGRA FINANCE. STEVE I MEAN  THERE'S NO QUESTION THAT PRODUCERS HAVE BEEN FACING SOME TOUGH  ECONOMIC HEADWINDS IN THE LAST COUPLE YEARS. BUT HOW CAN PRODUCERS KIND OF THINK OUT OF THE BOX TO BREAK THROUGH THIS? ABSOLUTELY I THINK  THAT'S EXACTLY THE MESSAGE TO FARMERS, IS THINK OUT OF THE BOX, LIKE  YOU SAID, TYNE. WE KNOW THE GLOOM AND DOOM. WE KNOW ALL THE FINANCIAL  STRESS SO LET'S THINK FARTHER AHEAD. HOW CAN WE SOLVE THIS? AND ONE  THE THINGS THAT'S BEEN REALLY INTERESTING TO US IS ALL THE POTENTIAL  OPPORTUNITIES.  AND I PROBABLY SHOULD CAUTION PRODUCERS TOO IS STEP  BACK FROM THEIR DISAGREEMENTS ABOUT SOME OF THESE ARE WAY OUT OF  THE BOX. THINK ABOUT ORGANICS. WE IMPORT MOST WERE ORGANIC CORN AND  SOYBEANS IN THE UNITED STATES. WE HAVE GROUND TO PRODUCE THAT. WHY  ARE WE NOT PRODUCING THAT? I KNOW A FARMER WHO HAS CHIA SEED THAT  COULD BE GROWN IN THE UNITED STATES. HE HAS THE CHIA SEEDS IN HIS  MACHINE SHED, IT HAS NO MARKET AND HAS NO WHERE TO GO WITH IT. AND  WHILE SO WE TALKED TO A COMPANY CALLED BEYOND ME THEY'RE PRODUCING A  PRODUCT THAT'S GOING TO COMPETE WITH THE MEAT INDUSTRY, IMPORT  PROTEIN FROM FRANCE WE COULD PRODUCE EVERY SIX NORTH DAKOTA BEING  A GOOD EXAMPLE. AND THOSE ARE EXAMPLES OF THINGS WERE WE NEED TO  CONNECT THE FARMER WITH THE FOOD INDUSTRY TO BE A MORE PROFITABLE  PRODUCER. YOU WANT THESE PRODUCERS TO MAY BE DIVERSIFY A LITTLE BIT  MORE? ABSOLUTELY AND AND WE'VE SEEN THAT YOU KNOW IN MY HOME STATE  OF IOWA WE PLANT FOUR CROPS: CORN SOYBEANS, SOYBEANS AND CORN.  WHEN I GREW UP THERE WAS LIVESTOCK ON EVERY FARM AND NOW YOU DON'T  SEE THAT. SO NOW YOU SEE THAT COMING BACK THE FARM WHICH MAKES SENSE  BECAUSE THE FEED THERE. BUT WE NEED TO DIVERSIFY THE OPERATION,  DIVERSIFY THE INCOME, DIVERSIFY THE REVENUE ON THE  FARM. WHAT ABOUT UNDERSTANDING BASIS? SOME OF THOSE KIND OF SIMPLE  THINGS THAT YOU CAN HELP MARKET YOUR OWN CROP THAT YOU'RE GOING  RIGHT NOW BETTER ABSOLUTELY. AND AND FARMERS AS THE GOTTEN BIGGER  AND THEY'RE GROWING A LOT OF STORAGE, THEY NEED TO THINK LIKE AN  ELEVATOR. AN ELEVATOR, THEY  TRADE FUTURES IS PURELY AS A HEDGE. IT'S  NOT ONE THING TO MAKE THE MAKE MONEY IN THE BASES BY THE FACT HOW  THEY BUY IT HOW THEY SELL IT. A FARMER WAS GONNA THINK THE SAME WAY.  DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE FUTURES. WORRY ABOUT THE BASIS. BECAUSE THAT'S  WHERE EVEN A MAKE OR LOSE MONEY. AND THINK ABOUT BASES SEPARATELY AND NOT CASH PRICE. CALL FOR A BASIS.  STAY WITH US WE'LL BE BACK WITH  MORE AGDAY IN JUST A MOMENT. YOU'RE A FARMER.  AND YOU ARE RELENTLESS.  WE'RE RELENTLESS TOO.   VISIT MYCOGEN-DOT-COM, OR YOUR LOCAL MYCOGEN SEEDS DEALER TO LEARN  MORE ABOUT OUR RELENTLESS DEDICATION TO YOU.  

WEATHER
WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY WITH METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN. MIKE, WE'RE  SEEING SOME BEAUTIFUL WEATHER IN INDIANA THIS WEEK. GREAT WEATHER FOR  SOME OF THOSE FARMERS WHO STILL NEED TO GET THEIR CROP OUT OF THE  GROUND. YEAH, REALLY I THINK A LOT IS OUT OF THE GROUND LIKE YOU WERE  TELLING ME EARLIER BUT ANYBODY THAT'S STRUGGLING TO GET THE LAST BIT IN,  THERE'S A LOT OF NICE WEATHER OUT THERE. AND THAT'S ALL BECAUSE OF  THREE DOMES OF HIGH PRESSURE, ONE OVER THE LAKES, ONE OF THE CENTRAL  PLAINS AND ONE OF THE WEST, AND THAT'S JUST PROVIDING A HUGE SWATH OF  DRY WEATHER, EVEN THIS RAIN IN THE EAST ISN'T THAT HEAVY ALTHOUGH AS  THIS AREA OF LOW PRESSURE KIND OF INCREASES APPROACHING THE COAST IT  WILL INCREASE THE RAIN A LITTLE BIT AND WE CONTINUE TO SEE RAIN SHOWERS  IN PARTS OF TEXAS IN OTHER SECTIONS OF THE SOUTHWEST. SO PUTTING THE  MAPS INTO MOTION, YOU CAN SEE THAT THE NORTHERN HIGH PRESSURE JUST  BUILDS SOUTHWARD. SO LOOK AT THE DRY AIR BY LATE IN THE DAY TOMORROW  ALMOST THE ENTIRE LOWER FORTY EIGHT, JUST A COUPLE A LINGERING  SHOWERS IN THE MID ATLANTIC AND A COUPLE OF SHOWERS THERE IN THE  SOUTHERN AND SOUTHWESTERN TEXAS. THE REST OF THE COUNTRY ALMOST  PERFECTLY DRY. YOU CAN SEE AS WE HEAD THROUGH TOMORROW NIGHT AND  ON INTO OR TONIGHT THEY SHOULD SAY AND ON INTO THE DAY TOMORROW, WE  ARE LOOKING AT SOME BEAUTIFUL WEATHER, EVEN THIS NEXT COLD FRONT IS  VERY LITTLE OF MOISTURE ALONG IT DOES HAVE SOME PRETTY COLD AIR  BEHIND IT. QUICK SHOT ANYWAY. BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE A LOT OF MOISTURE,  SHOWERS IN THE NORTHERN GREAT LAKES AND IN NEW ENGLAND WITH THAT  AND THAT'S ABOUT IT. SO LET'S CHECK OUT PRECIPITATION ESTIMATES OVER THE PAST TWENTY FOUR  HOURS. AGAIN IS EVOLVING VERY LIGHT AMOUNT OF TEN THIRD QUARTER OF AN  INCH IN GENERAL. AS CENTRAL MOUNTAINS BACK INTO THE OHIO RIVER VALLEY.  SOME AREAS IN  CENTRAL AND SOUTH TEXAS DID GET AN INCH BUT MOST AREAS  DID NOT AND AS WE GO OUT ON THE NEXT THIRTY SIX HOURS WILL ADD SOME IN  THE MID ATLANTIC, WILL ADD SOME IN THAT TEXAS. AND LIVE JUST A LITTLE BIT IN  FAR NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND IN THE FAR NORTHWEST AND THAT'S ABOUT IT.  SNOWFALL SAME IDEA THAT NOTHING GOING ON IN THE LOWER FORTY EIGHT  FOR SNOW. PRETTY GOOD SNOW IS GOING ON THOUGH.  IN THE PORTIONS OF  CANADA BUT OTHER THAT NO REAL ISSUES. TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON  VERY PLEASANT FOR THIS TIME OF THE YEAR, LOTS OF THE FIFTIES AND SIXTIES  THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY, EVEN SEVENTY TWO IN RAPID CITY  OUR COMPUTER MODEL IS SHOWING SEVENTIES DOWN ALONG THE GULF COAST  STILL OBVIOUSLY PRETTY WARM IN THE DESERT SOUTHWEST AND THAT'LL  CONTINUE LOWS TONIGHT MOSTLY IN THE FORTIES THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY, A FEW  THIRTIES FROM THE LOWER RIVER VALLEY INTO THE NORTHEAST. AND HIGH  TEMPERATURES TOMORROW AFTERNOON AND MORE THE SAME FIFTIES AND  SIXTIES DOMINATING MOST OF THE EASTERN TWO THIRDS OF THE COUNTRY  UNTIL YOU GET DOWN NEAR THE GULF. THERE'S A JET STREAM RIDGE OUT WEST,  CUT OFF IN THE SOUTHWEST THAT EVENTUALLY EMERGES AS IT TRIES TO COME  EASTWARD SEVERAL QUICK SHOTS OF COLDER AIR WITH THESE TROUGH COMING INTO THE  GREAT LAKES IN THE NORTHEAST. OTHER THAT IT STAYS MILD. FOR THE  SOUTHERN HALF OF THE PLAINS AS A LOOK ACROSS A COUNTRY NOW LET'S TAKE  A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS.WE'LL HEAD TO BENTON, OREGON FIRST OF  ALL PARTLY SUNNY AND NICE. HIGH UP TO SIXTY SIX DEGREES. SAN ANTONIO,  TEXAS MOSTLY CLOUDY IN A COUPLE OF SHOWERS, HIGH OF SIXTY NINE. AND  COLUMBUS, OHIO PARTLY TO MOSTLY SUNNY ON THE COOL SIDE, HIGH AROUND  FIFTY THREE.

TEASE
THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION GOT VICIOUS THIS YEAR. LATER ON IN THE  COUNTRY, SEE HOW FEROCIOUS SOME VOTERS GOT THIS YEAR. IS ORGANICALLY-GROWN PRODUCE SAFER THAN OTHER VARIETIES. NEXT IN OUR  PACKER REPORT, WE'LL LOOK AT A NEW STUDY WITH DATE-A GOING BACK MORE  THAN 20 YEARS!

PACKER TV
IN NEWS FROM OUR REPORTING PARTNERS AT THE PACKER - NEARLY HALF OF  THE FOODBORNE ILLNESS OUTBREAKS ASSOCIATED WITH ORGANIC FOOD WERE  CAUSED BY PRODUCE OVER THE PAST TWO DECADES. THAT'S THE OUTCOME OF A STUDY PUBLISHED IN THE JOURNAL OF FOOD  PROTECTION.  THE STUDY LOOKS AT CASES DATING ALL THE WAY BACK TO 1992. 44% OF THE OUTBREAKS WERE SALMONELLA-RELATED. 33-PERCENT WERE E- COLI. THE AUTHORS SAID AS ORGANIC FOOD PRODUCTION AND CONSUMPTION HAVE  INCREASED IN RECENT YEARS, THERE HAVE BEEN MORE FOODBORNE  OUTBREAKS ASSOCIATED WITH ORGANIC FOODS. HOWEVER THEY REACHED NO  CONCLUSION ON WHETHER ORGANIC COMMODITIES ARE MORE OR LESS LIKELY  TO CAUSE OUTBREAKS. MEANWHILE WAL-MART ANNOUNCED PLANS TO DOUBLE ITS LOCALLY GROWN  PRODUCE SALES IN THE U-S BY 2025. THE RETAILER ALREADY DOUBLED ITS LOCAL PRODUCE SALES BETWEEN 2009 TO  2015. ACCORDING TO THE PACKER, WALMART'S DEFINITION OF LOCAL PRODUCE IS OF  THAT GROWN IN THE SAME STATE IN WHICH THE STORE IS LOCATED. THE COMPANY ALSO PLANS TO USE PACKAGING THAT'S 100-PERCENT  RECYCLABLE BY 2025. ALSO FROM THE PACKER, A WEAK U-S DOLLAR IS HELPING TO BOLSTER EXPORTS  OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES FROM CALIFORNIA'S CENTRAL VALLEY. AND THAT DEMAND IS KEEPING DOCK-WORKERS BUSY AT THE PORT OF OAKLAND. THE PACKER SAYS EXPORT VOLUME AT THE PORT HIT A THREE-YEAR HIGH IN  OCTOBER.  AGRICULTURAL COMMODITIES ACCOUNT FOR 40-PERCENT OF THE  PORT'S TOTAL VOLUME.  THAT'S TWO PERCENT HIGHER THAN LAST YEAR.

TEASE
THE PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN MAY HAVE SEEMED LIKE A ZOO....NEXT WE'LL SEE  HOW RESIDENTS OF AN ACTUAL ZOO 'VOTED' IN THE CAMPAIGN.
