TODAY ON AGDAY
OCTOBER 11, 2016

HEADLINES
COMING UP TODAY ON AGDAY - HURRICANE MATHEW LEAVES ITS MARK ON  FARMERS IN THE SOUTH EAST. PLUS, WHAT WOULD LIFE BE LIKE WITHOUT NAFTA  FOR AMERICAN FARMERS. IN AGRIBUSINESS...A SUPPLY DEMAND REPORT  PREVIEW. AND WE'LL TAKE ON A TASTEE DEBATE ON THE ORIGINS OF COOKIES AND CREAM  ICE CREAM. AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE, LONG LASTING  CHEVY SILVERADO.

HURRICANE MATTHEW DAMAGE
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS.  MATTHEW IS BACK OUT IN THE  ATLANTIC COAST, BUT THE DEVASTATION LINGERS, AND COULD INTENSIFY AS  RIVERS CONTINUE TO RISE. THE STORM LEFT ITS MARK FROM HAITI TO THE VIRGINIA COAST.  IT BRUTALIZED  FIVE U-S STATES FOR FOUR DAYS. MOST NOTABLY IN NORTH CAROLINA, FLOODED CITIES ARE TRYING TO DRY OUT.  AND FOR THOSE WHO MISSED A DIRECT HIT OF THE FEROCIOUS STORM, NOW  MUST WORRY ABOUT FLOODING.   THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAYS A FLOODING DISASTER WILL UNFOLD  OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS AS ALL THAT RAIN - MORE THAN A FOOT IN  PLACES - FLOWS INTO RIVERS AND DOWNSTREAM. ONE FARMER WE TALKED TO IN EASTERN NORTH CAROLINA SAYS THERE IS  "NOTHING LEFT" OF HIS COTTON CROP. TODD BOYD OF PINETOWN, NORTH CAROLINA SAYS HE HAD NOT STARTED  HARVESTING COTTON, SOYBEANS OR PEANUTS. MOST OF THE CORN WAS ALREADY SHELLED. BUT HE WON'T BE ABLE TO  HARVEST ANY OF THIS YEARS COTTON CROP. BOYD SAYS THE AREA RECEIVED ANYWHERE FROM 12 TO 20 INCHES OF RAIN  FROM MATTHEW.  BUT THE MAIN ISSUE WAS THE PREVIOUS 25-TO-30 INCHES OF  RAIN OVER THE PAST THREE WEEKS. EVEN BEFORE MATTHEW, MANY NORTH CAROLINA FIELDS WERE ALREADY IN BAD  SHAPE. THERE WAS A HEAVY RAIN STORM BETWEEN TROPICAL STORM HERMINE  AND MATTHEW.  THAT RAIN MADE IT NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR SOME FARMERS TO  RUN THEIR EQUIPMENT WHO WERE TRYING TO HARVEST WHAT THEY COULD. TOMMY LINDSAY FARMS IN HOKE COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA.  IT'S ABOUT 175  MILES WEST OF BOYD'S FARM. HE BURIED HIS COTTON PICKER AS HE TRIED TO BEAT THE LATEST WEATHER  ASSAULT.

NAFTA TRADE SERIES
NOW TO POLITICS - FOLLOWING THE RELEASE OF A VULGAR VIDEO FROM MORE  THAN A DECADE AGO, TWO OF DONALD TRUMP'S ROUGHLY 65 MEMBERS ARE  STEPPING DOWN FROM HIS AGRICULTURAL ADVISORY COUNCIL. SOUTH DAKOTA GOVERNOR DENNIS DAUGAARD AND ILLINOIS REPRESENTATIVE  RODNEY DAVIS BOTH RESCINDING THEIR SUPPORT...OVER THE WEEKEND. IT'S GETTING HARDER FOR MANY FOLKS IN AGRICULTURE TO REMEMBER LIFE  WITHOUT NAFTA. THE TRADE AGREEMENT NOW IN PLACE FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS. BUT THIS ELECTION SEASON -- NAFTA -- IS FRONT AND CENTER AS THE  CANDIATES ONCE AGAIN DEBATE ITS EFFECTIVENESS.  TYNE MORGAN JOINS US  WITH THE SECOND PART OF HER TRADE SERIES--A LOOK AT LIFE WITHOUT THE  NORTH AMERICAN FREE TRADE AGREEMENT. NAFTA IS THE WORST TRADE DEAL MAYBE EVER SIGNED ANYWHERE BUT CERTAINLY EVER SIGNED IN THIS  COUNTRY. TRADE IS A HEATED LINE OF DEBATE ON THE CAMPAIGN THIS YEAR, WITH GOP  NOMINEE DONALD TRUMP TAKING SHOTS AT THE NORTH AMERICAN FREE TRADE  AGREEMENT, EVEN THREATNEING TO PULL OUT OF THE DEAL.  BUT GROUPS LIKE AMERICAN FARM BURUEA SAY WHEN YOU LOOK AT NAFTA BY  THE NUMBERS, IT'S A DEAL THAT WORKS FOR AGRICULTURE.  IN THE 21 YEARS SINCE THAT AGREEMENT CAME INTO FORCE, U.S. AG EXPORTS HAVE MROE THAN  QUADRUPLED FROM ABOUT 9 BILLION TO 39 BILLION. BECASUSE OF THAT FREE TRADE AGREEMENT, WE  HAVE A MARKET SHARE IN THOSE TWO COUNTRIES OF ABOUT 65 PERCENT.LOOKING AT IT BY COUNTRY, CANADA WAS THE NUMBER 1 CONSUMER OF U-S  AGRICULTURAL GOODS IN 2015, AND THE TOP BUYER OF U-S  FRESH FRUITS AND  VEGETABLES. MEXICO RANKS #3 ON THE OVERALL LIST, BUT IS THE TOP DESTINATION FOR U-S  CORN, POULTRY AND SOYBEAN MEAL.  THEY HAVE A HUGE COOKING OIL MARKET IN MEXICO AND COSTA RICA AND U-S SOYBEANS AR HTE  PRIME SOURCE OF SOYBEAN COOKING OIL.MEXICO ALSO PURCHASES 23 PERCENT OF ALL U-S CORN EXPORTS. BUT IT'S  THEIR GROWING DEMAND FOR PROTEIN THAT COULD PROVIDE AN ADDED BOOST. IF WE CAN FEED IT IN THE U-S, FEED OURC CORN IN THE UI-S TO OUR ANIMAL INDUSTRY, AND THE  LIVESTOCK INDUSTRY AND EXPORT THAT FINISHED  PRODUCT, THAT'S THE BIGGEST VALUE WE CAN GET POULTRY AND PORK, AND THE SECOND BIGGEST FOR BEEF.  ON THE LIVESTOCK SIDE, WEVE CERTAINLY SEEN A LOT MORE TRADE IN TEH HOG MARKET, BETWEEN  CANADA AND THE UNISTED, IN THE BEEF MARKET, A LOT OF TRADE BTWEEN ALL THREE COUNTIRES FRANKLY, THE DAIRY INDUSTRY ECHOING THESE SENTIMENTS..  POTENTIALLY WALKING AWAY FROM NAFTA COULD BE DETREMINTAL TO DAIRY.  MEXICO IS OUR NUMBER 1 DAIRY TRADING PARTNER AND CANADA CAN BE NUMBER 2 OR NUMBER 3IF NAFTA DOES GET TORN UP AND THEY SOME HOW RENEGOTIATE THAT, THAT COULD HAVE DIRE  CONSEQUENCES FOR U-S DAIRY PRODUCERS> BUT FOR GROUPS LIKE RICE PRODUCERS, IT'S THE PRODUCTS COMING IN THAT'S  BECOMING A CONCERN.  ALL WE'RE LOOKING FOR IS A FAIR DEAL. WE JUS TWANT TO LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD ON BOTHSIDES OF HTE  TABLE.SUGAR BEET GROWERS AGREE SAYING NAFTA IS ONE OF THOSE TRADE DEALS  THEY VIEW AS UNFAIR. NAFTA IS A CHALLENGE FOR US BECAUE IT WOULD HAVE GIVEN SOME COUTNRIES, SPECIFICALLY MEXICO,  FREE REIGN TO SHIP INTO THE UNITED STATES. > MAATZ SAYS JUST LAST YEAR,  U-S AND MEXICO CREATED A SUSPENSION  AGREEMENT, DESIGNED TO KEEP SUGAR FROM ENTERING THE COUNTRY  ILLEGALLY.  THE SUSPENSION AGREEMENT SHOUL DKEEP MEXICO TO SHIIPING THE RIGHT QUANITIES, THE RIGHT  QUALITY IN THE RIGHT FORM, OF SUGAR INTO OUR COUNTRY AT THE RIGHT LEVEL.BUT HE SAYS EVEN WITH THE SUSPENSION, THERE ARE STILL LOOPHOLES  ALLOWING SUGAR TO ENTER THE U-S IN SUB-STANDARD FORMS, THEN  PROCESSING IT INTO OTHER PRODUCTS.  A MELTHOUSE CAN WHAT WE CALL CLEAN IT UP A LITTLE BIT, THEY CAN REPROCSS IT, TYPICALLY THEY  LIQUIFY IT AND SPRAY IT ONTO A FOOD PRODUCT, SO THEY ADD SUGAR THAT WAY, NOT GOING TRHOUGJ THE  NORMAL CHANNELS. WELL THIS ADDS PRESSURE TO THOSE CANE REFINERIES, THEY ARE LOSING A PIECE OF  HTEIR NORMAL BUSINESS. DESPITE MEXICO BEING THE U-S SUGAR INDUSTRY'S NUMBER 1 COMPETITOR,  EVEN THOSE GROWERS DON'T WANT TO SEE NAFTA GO AWAY.  TO LOOK AT EACH CLAUSE WITHIN NAFTA AND LOOK AT WHERE MIGHT BE A EBTTER WAY TO LOOK AT IT  AND DETERMINE WHERE MIGHT WE HAVE HCNAGES THAT ARE AN IMPROVEMNET TO ANOTHER SEGMENT,  BUT WE KNOW TO JUST THROW IT OUT WOULD NOT BE WORKING TOGETHER AS AN AGRICULTURAL INDUSTRY. WHILE TRADE REMAINS UNDER THE MICROSCOPE THIS ELECTION, NIGH SAYS  EXPORTS ARE CREATING REAL VALUE FOR U-S AG.  THANKS TYNE.  TYNE SAYS WHILE NAFTA IS A FOCUS, THE CANDIDATES HAVE REALLY ZEROED IN  ON MANUFACTURING JOBS.  THIS CHART SHOWS HOW MANUFACTURING JOBS IN THE U-S HAVE FALLEN 40  PERCENT SINCE THE PEAK IN 1979. 

TTIP
SPEAKING OF TRADE DEALS, TRADE NEGOTIATORS FOR THE U.S. AND EU LEFT  TALKS IN NEW YORK LAST WEEK MAKING VERY LITTLE PROGRESS ON THE TRANS- ATLANTIC TRADE AND INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP...OR TTIP. THE E-U SAYS IT'S WILLING TO ELIMINATE TARIFFS ON NEARLY ALL GOODS, FOR  EXAMPLE, BUT IT'S UNWILLING TO REMOVE TARIFFS ON BEEF, POULTRY AND  PORK.  IT ALSO INDICATED IT WOULD ALLOW SOME MARKET ACCESS FOR "SENSITIVE" PRODUCTS, INCLUDING MEAT IF THE UNITED STATES AGREES TO THE EU'S  DEMANDS ON RECIPROCAL ACCESS AND ON PROTECTIONS FOR PRODUCTS  LABELED WITH GEOGRAPHICAL INDICATORS.  THE NATIONAL PORK PRODUCERS COUNCIL CALLS THE FUTURE OF TTIP -- UNCERTAIN. NO TALKS ARE SCHEDULED BEYOND OCTOBER.

CROP COMMENTS
CROP COMMENTS IS POWERED BY RESICORE HERBICIDE FOR CORN, FROM  DOW AGROSCIENCES. MIKE HOFFMAN IS BACK THIS MORNING. HE JOINS US WITH TODAY'S CROP  COMMENTS. GOOD MORNING CLINTON. ON MONDAY, USDA DIDN'T RELEASE IS WEEKLY CROP PROGRESS REPORT  BECAUSE OF THE COLUMBUS DAY HOLIDAY. BUT THAT'S NOT KEEPING FARMERS OUT OF THE FIELD. NATIONAL REPORTER BETSY JIBBEN CAUGHT UP WITH HARVEST CREWS NEAR  DEFIANCE OHIO. FARMERS TELL HER THE GROWING SEASON WENT FROM TOO WET TO BONE DRY AND THEN BACK TO NICE RAINS IN AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER. THE SOYBEAN  CROP LOOKS GREAT AND THIS FARMER SAYS IT COULD BE ONE OF THEIR BEST  EVER. NOW HERE ARE SOME HOME TOWN TEMPS.

TEASE
WHEN WE COME BACK, WE'LL TAKE A LOOK AT THE PENDING SUPPLY DEMAND  REPORT FROM USDA.  AND LATER THE STORY BEHIND A TASTY ICE CREAM TREAT. THE GREAT COOKIES  AND CREAM DEBATE FROM SOUTH DAKOTA STATE...TODAY ON IN THE COUNTRY.

AGRIBUSINESS
AGRIBUSINESS TODAY, BROUGHT TO YOU BY YAMAHA - MAKERS OF VIKING SIDE- BY-SIDES.  YAMAHA - REAL WORLD TOUGH.  IT WON'T BE LONG BEFORE USDA RELEASES ANOTHER SUPPLY DEMAND REPORT.  TYNE MORGAN HAS A PREVIEW IN THIS MORNING'S ANALYSIS. WE'RE HERE NOW WITH DUSTIN JOHNSON OF AGYIELD.  DUSTIN WE HAVE THE SUPPLY DEMAND REPORT  COMING OUT THIS WEEK WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT WELL IT'S GOING TO BE A BIG REPORT BECAUSE OF THE  YIELDS. THE USDA WILL HAVE ON A SMALLER MARGIN OF ERROR ON THE OCTOBER YIELD REPORT AND SO  WE'LL GET A LOT MORE KNOWN ABOUT THAT. I THINK THAT WE DO HAVE DEMAND NEAR RECORDS SO THAT'S  GOING TO BE ONE THING THAT WILL PROBABLY COME OFF IF YIELDS ARE LOWER THAN EXPECTED BUT ITS  GOING TO BE VERY HARD FOR THEM TO ADD TP THAT DEMAND ALREADY IT'S A MAJOR RECORD WHEN WE  TALK ABOUT THESE YIELDS. CORN, IT'S PRETTY MUCH EXPECTED THAT WE'RE GOING TO SEE THIS CORN  YIELD COME DOWN DO YOU THINK IT WILL AND IF SO OLD DUSTIN BY HOW MUCH. YEAH I THINK THAT THAT'S  GONNA BE NEGLIGIBLE JUST FROM WHAT WE'VE SEEN SO FAR. I KNOW THAT SOME PEOPLE HAVN'T GOTTEN  THE CORN YIELDS BUT WE'VE HEARD ENOUGH REALLY REALLY GOOD YIELDS THAT WE ASSUME THAT THE  USDA IS AT LEAST IN THE BALLPARK AND EVEN IF THEY TAKE OFF A COUPLE HUNDRED MILLION BUSHELS OF PRODUCTION WE HAVE THAT RECORD BY SEVEN HUNDRED THIRTY TWO MILLION SO LIKE THEY'RE SO MUCH  ROOM TO STILL TAKE THAT OFF IN DEMAND AND STILL BE A VERY LARGE CARRY OUT. I'M THINKING MINIMUM  TWO BILLION THIS YEAR NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS YOU KNOW IT'S IN COULD BE SAYING SOMETHING  DIFFERENT IF THE YIELDS WERE A COMPLETE SURPRISE BUT WE DON'T THINK THAT. WHAT ABOUT SOYBEAN YIELD WE'RE HEARING IMPRESSIVE SOYBEAN YIELDS FROM A LOT OF AREAS. HOW MUCH DO YOU THINK  REALISTICALLY USDA COULD UP IT IN THIS REPORT YOU KNOW I WOULDN'T REALLY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT  THEY'RE CAPABLE OF THE PREVIOUS TREND LINE BEAT RECORD WOULD PUT IT... IF YOU TIE THAT TRENDLINE IT  WOULD BE FIFTY TWO BUSHELS AN ACRE SO WE WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED TO SEE IT ULTIMATELY COME  DOWN TO THAT NOT SURE WHAT THEY'RE GOING WRITE DOWN IN THIS REPORT SO AGAIN VERY LARGE SUPPLY  AND WE HAVE SEEN ENOUGH RECORD YIELDS COME ACROSS THAT WE WOULD ASSUME THAT'S POSSIBLE  AT THE END OF THE DAY IF WE DO HAVE THESE RECORD CROPS OUT THERE LIKE IT SOUNDS LIKE WE MAY HAVE ESPECIALLY IN SOYBEANS IS THERE ENOUGH DEMAND TO CHEW THROUGH THIS MASSIVE  PRODUCTION YET I THINK... YOU KNOW THE CHINESE HAVE BEEN VERY GOOD PRICE BUYERS. WE'VE  SEEN A LOT MORE DEMAND FROM THEM THAN WE EXPECTED OVER THIS LAST YEAR FROM WHERE THEY  STARTED OUT ON THEIR STARTING SALES BUT I THINK THAT THEIR POLICY CHANGES OF YOU KNOW REMOVING THE PRICE SUPPORT PROGRAM FOR CORN AND SOME OTHER THINGS ARE GOING ON WITH THE CORN TO BEAN  RATIO OUT FORWARD I DON'T THINK THERE'S A GOOD CHANCE FOR SOYBEANS TO GET SUPER TIGHT AGAIN  LIKE THEY DID THIS YEAR IF THAT'S THE YIELD. ALL RIGHT THANK YOU SO MUCH WE'LL SEE WHAT USDA HAS TO SAY THIS WEEK THEY WITH US WE'RE BACK WITH MORE AGDAY IN JUST A MOMENT FOR MORE INFORMATION ON AGYIELD PLEASE CALL US AT 855-266-6241 OR  VISIT US ONLINE AT WWW,AGYIELD.COM.   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.

NATIONAL WEATHER
WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY. HERE WITH METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN. MIKE  NO HURRICANES, NO TROPICAL STORMS TODAY BUT SNOW IN THE NORTHERN  PLAINS. PRETTY COLD AIR. I MEAN IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR WHEN WE START TO  SEE IN THE NORTHERN PLAINS,NORTHERN ROCKIES AND I WILL BE FOLLOWING  THAT ONE AS IT MOVES OFF TO THE EAST TO THE SOUTH OF THAT COLD AIR  THOUGH, WE'RE TALKING SOME VERY NICE WEATHER AS YOU ARE TRYING GET  SOME OF THOSE UH CROPS IN FROM THE FIELD. SO HARVEST WEATHER LOOKING GOOD THERE. BUT BOY NORTH OF THIS FRONT, LET'S PUT THE MAPS INTO  MOTION. STATIONARY FRONT EAST OF IT, SO IT'S NOT COMING SOUTHWARD  QUICKLY BUT ONCE THIS AREA OF LOW PRESSURE THIS ENERGY KIND OF FEEDS  ALONG THIS FRONT, WE WILL SEE THE COLD AIR DROP INTO THE WEST FIRST AND  THEN EVENTUALLY INTO THE CENTRAL PLAINS AND FARTHER EAST FROM THERE  AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE WEEK. SO THERE'S LATE IN THE THE DAY TODAY. YOU  CAN SEE SOME SHOWERS ALONG THE FRONT AND IT DOES TURN TO SNOW FOR  FOR PARTS OF THE WESTERN DAKOTAS, ESPECIALLY NORTH DAKOTA AND  NORTHERN WYOMING AND MONTANA AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE NIGHT TIME  TONIGHT THE SNOW SPREADS SOUTHWARD EVEN PARTS OF THE PANHANDLE OF  NEBRASKA GETTING SOME SNOW AND THAT THAT A LITTLE MIXTURE THERE YOU  CAN SEE INTO PARTS OF SOUTH DAKOTA AND MINNESOTA. AS WE HEAD  THROUGH TOMORROW MORNING. BY TOMORROW EVENING THEN YOU CAN SEE  THAT FRONT REALLY STARTS THE BLAST SOUTHWARD. COLDER AIR ALREADY  COMING INTO A NORTHERN PORTIONS OF TEXAS BY SEVEN PM TOMORROW.  SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS OUT AHEAD OF IT FROM THE GREAT LAKES  INTO THE CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI VALLEY INTO PARTS OF MISSOURI. THERE IS A  PRECIPITATION ESTIMATE OF THE PAST TWENTY FOUR HOURS. YOU CAN SEE NOT  A LOT BUT WE HAVE SEEN SOME POCKETS THERE IN THE CENTRAL PLAINS AND  ALSO IN THE NORTHERN PLAINS, NORTHERN ROCKIES. BUT ADD ON THE NEXT  THIRTY SIX HOURS YOU CAN SEE NOTHING REAL HEAVY IN BUT WE DO START TO  SEE A LITTLE BIT OF MOISTURE ESPECIALLY FEEDING IN AHEAD OF THAT COLD  FRONT INTO THE CENTRAL PORTIONS OF THE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY INTO THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES BY LATER IN THE DAY TOMORROW. NOW LET'S LOOK AT  SNOW. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I'VE SHOW THIS FOR THIS SEASON YOU CAN SEE  SOME AREAS ARE SHOWING UP ON OUR COMPUTER MODEL IS TWO TO FOUR  INCHES AT LEAST STARTING THE DAY TODAY. AND THEN YOU MAY END UP WITH  DOUBLE THAT OVER PARTS OF SOUTHWESTERN MONTANA AND THOSE AREAS OF  SNOW WILL SPREAD EASTWARD FROM THERE. TEMPERATURE YOU CAN SEE THE  BIG DIFFERENCE. IT GOES FROM SEVENTIES IN PARTS OF NEBRASKA TO THE  THIRTIES IN PARTS OF MONTANA FOR THIS AFTERNOON'S HIGH TEMPERATURES.  LOTS OF 80S ALSO ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PLAINS. LOW'S TONITE  SIXTIES FROM THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES ALL THE WAY TO THE GULF COAST.  BUT TWENTIES AND THIRTIES FOR THE NORTHERN ROCKIES, NORTHWESTERN PLAINS AND THAT COLD AIR WILL CONTINUE TO SPREAD TOWARD THE  SOUTHEAST. YOU CAN REALLY PICK OUT THAT COLD FRONTA PRETTY WELL AS  WE LOOK AT THAT MAP THERE FOR TOMORROW AFTERNOON. THERE'S A JET  STREAM AND YOU CAN SAVE US A QUICK SHOT OF COLD AIR NOT A REAL DEEP  TROUGH IS VERY COLD AIR TO THE NORTH AND THEN WE KINDA GO ZONAL FOR  LATER THIS WEEK INTO THE WEEKEND BEFORE THINGS BUCKLE AGAIN ON THE  JET STREAM AS WE HEAD INTO NEXT WEEK

REGIONAL WEATHER
THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE  COUNTRY NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS. FIRST OF ALL  FOR AUSTIN NEVADA A MIX OF CLOUDS AND SUNSHINE AND A HIGH TEMP OF  SIXTY FIVE DEGREES FORT DODGE IOWA PARTLY SUNNY AND PLEASANT  AFTERNOON HIGH OF SEVENTY SEVEN. AND CHARLESTON WEST VIRGINIA MAYBE  SOME MORNING FOG THEN PARTLY SUNNY AND NICE HIGH SEVENTY FOUR. 

TEASE
UP NEXT, WE'LL CHECK IN ON THE DAIRY INDUSTRY FOLLOWING THE WORLD  DAIRY EXPO. HERE'S THE SECRET TO SELLING OLD EQUIPMENT. PETE'S PICK OF THE WEEK  LETS YOU EASILY VIEW CURRENT MARKET PRICES. JUST TEXT PETE TO 31313 TO  GET STARTED!

DAIRY REPORT
IN OUR DAIRY REPORT, THE LATEST DROUGHT MONITOR SHOW 65 PERCENT OF  THE NORTH EAST EXPERIENCING SOME SORT OF THE DROUGHT OR DRYNESS. THAT'S ACTUALLY A 13 POINT IMPROVEMENT OVER THE PREVIOUS WEEK. BUT FOR DAIRIES IN THE REGION IT COMES TOO LATE TO SAVE CROPS AND  FORAGE. CENTRAL NEW YORK HAS HAD A TOUGH TIME. AND IVE HEARD SILAGE YIELDS BEING DOWN 40  OR 50 PERCENT. THE GRAIN YIELDS ON A LOT OF THAT CORN WAS GOOD BUT THEY JUST WON'T HAVE THE  TONNAGE. ALFALFA AND HAY PRICES HAVE JUST GONE THROUGH THE ROOF. AND SO THEIR MARGINS ARE  GOING TO BE SQUEEZED WHERE THEY'RE REALLY FEELING THAT DROUGHT. DISASTER ASSISTANCE EXPECTED TO BE TOP OF MIND THIS WEEK AS AG  SECRETARY TOM VILSACK PLANS A STOP AT A WISCONSIN CREAMERY LATER  TODAY. HE'S EXPECTED TO DISCUSSION THE MARGIN PROTECTION PROGRAM...AND THE  INDUSTRY'S CONCERNS ABOUT IT'S EFFICACY. INSTEAD WE'D LIKE TO MAKE PROGRAMS LIKE MPP WORK BETTER. THERE'S SOME THINGS WE  CAN DO. HAD WE JUST STUCK WITH THE ORGINIAL NUMBERS IN THE FORMULA BEFORE CHANGED, WE  WOULD HAVE SEEN A LOT MORE PAYOUTS. THE STATS ARE SURPRISING WITH HOW MANY MORE PEOPLE  WOULD HAVE RECEIVED CHECKS WITH THAT PROGRAM. AND THE REALITY IS WE WOULDN'T HAVE LOST CASH 

TEASE
ON THAT EITHER. UP NEXT, WE'LL CONTINUE OUR DAIRY THEME WITH A LITTLE HISTORY BEHIND  COOKIES AND CREAM ICE CREAM.

IN 1979, LEGEND HAS IT  COOKIES AND CREAM STARTED WITH A DAIRY PLANT  MANAGER AND TWO STUDENTS.  "HIS NAME WAS SHIRLEY SEAS, HE WANTED TO COME UP WITH A DIFFERENT ICE CREAM. SO HE WENT AND BOUGHT SOME OREO COOKIES, HAD 2 STUDENTS, CRUSH THEM UP AND PUT THEM IN ICE CREAM.""THE HEAD OF THE DEPARTMENT HAD A DAUGHTER WHO WAS A LAWYER. SHE GOT WIND OF IT. SHE  MENTIONED THERE WAS PROBABLY SOME COPYRIGHT INFRIDGEMENT.

WE COULD HAVE BEEN RICH!""IT REALLY HELPS ME LEARN THE WHOLE PROCESS OF MAKING CHEESE, ICE CREAM AND MILK."DESPITE NEW ADVANCEMENTS, AND FRESH TECHNOLOGY,  SOUTH DAKOTA STATE STUDENTS ENJOY DIPPING INTO THE PAST..  PROUDLY DEFENDING THEIR CLAIM AS THE BIRTHPLACE OF COOKIES AND  CREAM."SAY IF SOMEONE ASKS ME WHAT MY MAJOR IS, I SAY DAIRY MANUFACTURING. THEY SAY WHAT'S  THAT? I SAY SDSU. IF YOU THINK OF FCOOKIES AND CREAM ICE CREAM, IT WAS INVENTED AT SDSU!" REPORTING IN BROOKINGS, SOUTH DAKOTA, I'M BETSY JIBBEN.  THANKS BETSY. SHE SAYS THE MILK USED IN THE ICE CREAM COMES FROM THE  SCHOOL'S OWN DAIRY. AND SO FAR--THERE'S A 100 PERCENT JOB PLACEMENT  TRACK RECORD FOR STUDENTS IN THE PROGRAM. AND FOR THE SAKE OF  TRANSPARENCY, BETSY IS AN SDSU ALUM.
