HEADLINES
A CLIMBING CATTLE MARKET CARRYING AGRICULTURE  RIGHT NOW... DESPITE A GROWING CATTLE HERD.  <THERE'S NO MAJOR IMBALANCES.> WHY DEMAND IS HELP DRIVE PRICES.  A GROWING HERD DESPITE DRYNESS IN THE NORTHERN  PLAINS.  < "I'M MICHELLE ROOK. I'LL HAVE AN UPDATE ON HOW FARMERS AND  RANCHERS ARE DOING HERE IN SOUTH DAKOTA AFTER A SUMMER OF  DROUGHT. I'LL HAVE THE STORY COMING UP."> IN AGRIBUSINESS, CHINA'S MASSIVE CORN STOCKPILE  HAS BEEN WEIGHT ON THE MARKET...  <I WOULD SAY AT THIS POINT PROBABLY ONLY 30 PERCENT OF THEIR  STOCKS IN THAT BIG PILE. IS USABLE AT THIS POINT> SO, COULD CHINA TURN BACK INTO AN IMPORTER OF  CORN?  AND TIME IS CRITICAL DURING EMERGENCIES. THAT'S  WHY A BIG CITY'S MOBILE MEDICAL UNIT COULD BRING  HELP TO SMALL TOWNS.  AGDAY - PRESENTED BY CHEVY SILVERADO. HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL FOR  HIGH-STRENGTH DEPENDABILITY.

CATTLE MARKETS
GOOD MORNING I'M TYNE MORGAN. CLINTON GRIFFITHS  IS ON ASSIGNMENT. AS GRAIN PRICES STRUGGLE, THE  MOMENTUM IS PICKING UP IN THE LIVESTOCK MARKETS.  CATTLE AND FEEDER FUTURES  ON FIRE MAKING NEW  CONTRACT HIGHS THIS WEEK WITH SOME ANALYSTS  THINKING THERE'S STILL PLENTY OF FREEWAY AHEAD  FOR HIGHER PRICES.  AND IT'S THAT PRICE MOMENTUM CARRYING  AGRICULTURE'S BALANCE SHEET RIGHT NOW.  LIVE CATTLE PRICES CLIMBING SINCE AUGUST, WHEN  PRICES BOTTOMED OUT AROUND 107 DOLLARS PER  HUNDREDWEIGHT. SINCE MID-AUGUST, PRICES  CLIMBING <<< MORE THAN 20 DOLLARS. >>>  THE MOVE HIGHER IS IN SPITE OF A CATTLE HERD THAT  JUST KEEPS GROWING.  THE CATTLE ON FEED REPORT OUT FRIDAY SHOWING  THE LARGEST PLACEMENT NUMBER SINCE 2011,  FOLLOWED BY USDA POSTING THE LARGEST COLD  STORAGE REPORT ON RECORD MONDAY.  WHILE SOME ANALYSTS THINK THE SIZE OF THE  NATION'S CATTLE HERD WILL CONTINUE TO GROW,  APPETITES FOR BEEF REMAIN STONG. AND THAT'S THE MAIN FACTOR SUPPORTING PRICES.  <THERE'S NO MAJOR IMBALANCES. YOU KNOW WE KNOW WE'VE GOT  SOME SUPPLY CHALLENGES GOING FORWARD BUT DEMAND HAS BEEN  VERY GOOD. AND AS LONG AS THAT HOLDS TRUE THEN THE REST OF THIS  STUFF WORKS PRETTY WELL.> DEMAND IS GOOD. AND LIKE WE SAID WE'RE GOING TO GET INTO  THE HOLIDAY SEASON AND DEMAND SHOULD KIND OF STAY IN THERE AND  KEEP UP WITH US. SO YOU KNOW AS LONG AS LONG AS CARCASS  WEIGHTS ARE DOWN AS YOU KNOW AND WE CAN SEE HOW CURRENT WE  ARE ON CATTLE. THE MARKET LOOKS GOOD. WE'RE STILL GOING TO HAVE  HIGH VOLATILITY THAT'S NOT GOING TO GO AWAY. WE'VE GOT THAT IN THE  MARKET IT'S GOING TO BE A VERY LONG TIME TO GET RID OF IT. BUT YOU  KNOW FROM THIS POINT FORWARD THE MARKET LOOKS PRETTY GOOD AS AS  WE GET THROUGH WINTER AND AND START LOOKING AT THAT SPRING  MARKET.> DRYER TELLING AGDAY AT SOME POITN THE CATTLE  MARKET WILL HAVE TO REACH A POINT WHERE THE  HIGHER PRICES DRIVES AWAY DEMAND.BUT HE DOESN'T 

NORTH DAKOTA DROUGHT RECOVERY
THE CATTLE HERD IS FINALLY RECOVERING FROM THE  SEVERE DROUGHT... AS WE MENTIONED, CATTLE  PLACEMENTS REACHING THE HIGHEST LEVEL SINCE  2011.  DROUGHT IS STILL A REALITY IN THE NORTHERN PLAINS,  HITTING PORTIONS OF SOUTH DAKOTA HARD.  . HOWEVER, THE WEATHER PATTERN BROKE BRINGING  RAINS TO SOME OF THOSE PARCHED AREAS JUST AS  MANY FARMERS AND RANCHERS WERE ON THE VERGE  OF DISASTER.  BUT AS MICHELLE ROOK TELLS US THE RECOVERY WILL  BE A LONG ROAD.  "IT STARTED A  YEAR AGO LAST MARCH AND IT HASN'T, I DON'T THINK WE'VE HAD OVER A  HALF INCH SINCE THEN AT ANY ONE TIME." SO THERE ARE AREAS THAT  HAVE DONE BETTER BUT IN OUR AREA WHERE I LIVE UP AROUND WALL WE  JUST HAVEN'T HAD IT." AS A RESULT, A FEW RANCHERS HAD TO DISPERSE THEIR HERDS.  HOWEVER, WILLIAMS SAYS THEY BOUGHT FEED AND WILL SELL MORE  CATTLE TO GET THROUGH THE WINTER. WILLIAMS, "YOU'RE GOING TO CULL PRETTY SHORT, THEY'LL BE PEOPLE  DOWN TO NUMBERS FROM WHAT THEY WERE A YEAR OR TWO AGO." 6 SEC  I'M SURE WE WON'T SEE THE EXPANSION IN THIS AREA THAT WE'VE HAD  IN THE PAST." ISABEL CATTLE PRODUCER MIKE MAHER ALSO CULLED SOME COWS AND  SOLD CALVES EARLY TO PRESERVE PASTURE AND GET THE COWS IN GOOD  CONDITION FOR WINTER. "WE MAY BE SOLD  OFF SOME OLDER COWS AND STUFF THAT WE NORMALLY WOULD HANG ON TO  FOR A WHILE, BUT JUST TO SAVE THE GRASS WE WEANED THE CALVES,  SOME OF THE CALVES EARLY."  IN FACT, AUCTIONEER LYNN WEISHAAR SAYS THE FALL CALF RUN HAS BEEN  UP TO 30 DAYS EARLY WHERE DROUGHT LINGERS, NOT JUST DUE TO  FEED…BUT ALSO WATER SHORTAGES. "A LOT OF DAMS ARE  EMPTY AND YOU KNOW A LOT PEOPLE RELY ON PIPELINES AND SOME  HAVE TO HAUL WATER. IT'S PRETTY ROUGH ON SOME OF THE FOLKS WITH  DROUGHT CONDITIONS."  MEANWHILE, SEVERAL INCHES OF RAIN IN THE CENTRAL, NORTH CENTRAL  AND NORTHEAST STARTED THE END OF JULY INTO AUGUST AND CAME JUST  IN TIME FOR MANY PRODUCERS.  "LATE JUNE  EARLY JULY IT DIDN'T EVEN LOOK LIKE WE WERE GOING TO GET SILAGE AND  NOW WE'RE GOING TO HAVE SOME ROW CROPS THAT ARE GOING TO MAKE  CORN AND SILAGE FOR THE PRODUCERS.  SO, THINGS TURNED AROUND."  THOSE RAINS ALSO SLOWED DOWN THE EARLY CATTLE SALES. (1:35) STEVE HELLWIG, HUB CITY LIVESTOCK, ABERDEEN, SD, "ABOUT  THE 15TH OR 20TH OF JULY, JUST AS THINGS GOT ON THE BRINK OF  DISASTER, THANKFULLY IT RAINED AND IT STOPPED ALL THE PAIRS FROM  MOVING FOR A LITTLE BIT." 9 SEC AND THEN WE GOT SOME MORE RAIN  AND EVERYBODY KIND OF MADE IT THROUGH AFTER THAT."  PLUS, PRODUCERS RECEIVED HELP FROM RELEASE OF CRP ACRES AND  THE LFP PROGRAM WHICH WILL GET THEM THROUGH THE WINTER. SCHAUNAMAN, "ANY OF THOSE DOLLARS THAT HELP DEFRAY THE COST OF  HAVING TO BUY FEED IT YOU HAD TO GO OUT AND BUY IT OR RENT SOME  ADDITIONAL GRASS, THE LIVESTOCK FORAGE PROGRAM DID WHAT IT WAS  SUPPOSED TO DO."  HOWEVER, EVEN WHERE THE DROUGHT LINGERS RANCHERS SAY THEY'LL  ONCE AGAIN PULL THEMSELVES UP BY THE BOOTSTRAPS AND WAIT FOR  RAIN. WILLIAMS, "WE'RE ALWAYS CLOSER EVERY DAY TO BETTER TIMES AROUND  THE CORNER, ITS WHY YOU STAY ITHIS BUSINESS I GUESS IS HOPE." IN SOUTH DAKOTA, I'M MICHELLE ROOK REPORTING FOR AGDAY.  ) ABOUT A QUARTER OF THE STATE - ON THE EASTERN SIDE - IS NOW DROUGHT-FREE, BUT WEST OF THERE IS  STILL DRY. EXTREME DROUGHT STILL EXISTS IN ABOUT  THREE PERCENT OF SOUTH DAKOTA.       

NORTH DAKOTA HARVEST
FARMERS IN NORTH DAKOTA ARE PUSHING TO HARVEST  AS MUCH AS THEY CAN BEFORE THE FIRST SNOW. METEROLOGISTS SAY THERE IS A POSSIBILITY OF SNOW  THURSDAY IN POCKETS OF THE STATE. FARMERS IN  COLFAX, NORTH DAKOTA SAY FARMERS ARE TRYING TO  HARVEST ALL OF THEIR SOYBEANS IF  THEY HAVEN'T  ALREADY.  <"A LOT OF GUYS ARE FINISHING UP SOYBEANS AND FIGHTING MUD. I  KNOW SOME FRIENDS OF MINE HAVE BOUGHT TRACKS WITHIN THE NEXT  FEW DAYS  SO THEY CAN GET OUT THERE AND GET AT THE SOYBEANS.  BECAUSE SNOW ON SOYBEANS ISN'T GOOD. SNOW ON CORN ON CORN,  SOMETIMES THAT WILL DISAPPEAR AND YOU CAN WORK WITH THAT."> USDA SAYS 89 PERCENT OF THE STATE'S SOYBEANS  HAVE BEEN HARVESTED. 2 POINTS ABOVE THE 5- YEAR  AVERAGE.  WHEN IT COMES TO CORN, MYERS SAYS THE MOISTURE  CONTENT IS HIGH AND A SNOW WON'T HELP. 

CROP COMMENTS
AS NORTH DAKOTA TALKS SNOW...WE SESOME  UNIQUE LIVESTOCK IN NORTH DAKOTA ARE READY. MIKE  HOFFMAN HAS THE DETAILS IN CROP COMMENTS. GOOD MORNING, TYNE. LET'S START OFF IN STERLING, KANSAS.  SORGHUM HARVEST IS UNDERWAY IN THE AREA. JENNY  BURGESS SAYS HARVEST IS GOING WELL. IT WAS A  SLOW START BUT HARVEST IS MOVING ALONG NOW.  USDA SAYS 24 PERCENT OF THE KANSAS SORGHUM  CROP HAS BEEN HARVESTED. THAT'S 21 POINTS BEHIND  THE 5-YEAR-AVERAGE.  AND HERE'S A CROP COMMENT WE DON'T RUN  EVERYDAY - REINDEER! THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN IN A REINDEER RANCH IN  DRAYTON, NORTH DAKOTA.  THESE REINDEER HAVE THREE COATS OF FUR AND ARE  READY FOR THE WINTER! AD LIB AND NOW 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.

AG LABOR’S FUTURE
THE FUTURE OF AG LABOR STILL AN UNKNOWN, WITH  DEBATE OVER THE AG GUEST WORKER BILL  CONTINUING THIS WEEK IN WASHINGTON.  THE SPONSOR OF THE LEGISLATION DEFENDING IT,  SAYING THE BILL WON'T RECREATE THE PITFALLS OF  THE CURRENT H-2-A PROGRAM, INSTEAD, IT CREATES A  TRUE GUEST WORKER PROGRAM.   HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE BOB GOOODLATTE, A  REPUBLICAN FROM VIRGINIA, AUTHORED THE BILL.  KNOWN AS THE AG ACT, GOODLATTE SAYS IT ASSURES  A RELIABLE WORKFORCE BY CREATING A MARKET- DRIVEN AND ADAPTABLE WORKER PROGRAM.  THE PROPOSAL WOULD REPLACE THE CURRENT H-2A  PROGRAM, AS WELL AS LOWER WHAT HE CALLED  UNREALISTIC WAGES. IT ALSO DOES AWAY WITH  MANDATORY HOUSING AND TRANSPORTION FOR GUEST  WORKERS.  BUT IT'S A CHANGE THAT JOHN CONYERS, A DEMOCRAT  FROM MICHIGAN, AS WELL AS THE UNITED FARM  WORKERS ARE STRONGLY OPPOSING.   CONYERS CALLS IT  FLAWED LEGISLATION. WHILE GROUPS LIKE THE WESTERN GROWERS  ASSOCIATION SAY WHILE THE BILL COULD BE FINE  TUNED, INCLUDING ALLOWING LEGAL STATUS FOR  SOME AG WORKERS, THEY SAY THE CURRENT H-2A  SYSTEM SIMPLY DOESN'T WORK FOR THEM.     DO YOU THINK THE H2A PROGRAM IS  BROKEN? TOM: HAS BEEN SINCE IT WAS INACTED. TO REQUIRE THE  HOUSING HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PROBLEM. TO AQUIRE A WAGE RATE, IT'S  ALWAYS BEEN A PROBLEM. THEY SAY WE WANT TO PROTECT AMERICAN  WORKERS. WELL, WE DON'T HAVE MANY AMERICAN WORKERS TO PROTECT.  AND WE PAY A HIGH WAGE. WE DON'T PAY MINIMUM WAGE. 17 > NASSIF SAYS FINDING AG LABOR IS BECOMIGN EVEN  MORE COMPLEX, AS MEXICO HAS EVEN STARTED TO  IMPORT WORKERS. 

TEASE
STILL TO COME, IT'S NO SECRET CHINA HAS A MASSIVE  PILE OF OLD CORN. BUT HOW MUCH OF IT IS EVEN  USABLE AT THIS POINT?  TIME-LOST IS BRAIN-LOST WHEN IT COMES TO STROKE  TREATMENT. WE'LL LOOK AT A MAJOR STUDY TO GET  TREATMENT SOONER, EVEN FOR STROKE VICTIMS IN  FARM COUNTRY.

AGRIBUSINESS
ALL RIGHT HERE NOW ANDY SCHUESSLER ANDY LET'S LOOK AT THIS CORN  MARKET SPECIFICALLY WITH CHINA. YOU KNOW WE'VE HEARD SOME  ANALYSTS SAY WE REALLY NEED CHINA TO INTRODUCE CORN MARKET IN  ORDER TO SEE DYNAMIC PRICES WHEN IT COMES WHEN IT COMES TO  CORN. WHAT'S THE LIKELIHOOD THAT THAT HAPPENS AND IF SO WE WELL I  WOULD SAY FIRST OFF THEY'RE GETTING IN THE ETHANOL BUSINESS. AND SO  THAT'S A PROCESS SIMILAR TO WHAT IT WAS HERE. AND LIKE I WOULD LOOK  AT A 10 YEAR TIME PERIOD WE SHOULD SEE EXPANSION. I MEAN NOT  COMPARABLE TO WHAT WE DID IN THE U.S. BUT BUT WITHIN THREE YEARS  WE SHOULD SEE SOME REAL SUBSTANCE ON THE MARKET. THERE IS JUST  A GENERAL DEMAND FOR FEED OVER THERE THAT'S RIDICULOUS. SO ANY  TIME THEY HAVE A SHORT CROP THEY'LL BE IN HERE FOR U.S. CORN. WE  GET A LOT OF TALK ABOUT THE STOCKS THAT THEY'RE SITTING ON OVER  THERE. I WOULD SAY AT THIS POINT PROBABLY ONLY 30 PERCENT OF THEIR  STOCKS IN THAT BIG PILE. IS USABLE AT THIS POINT. I MEAN YOU CAN'T  EVEN USE SOME OF THAT. WHAT I WANT TO TELL YOU WHAT I DID THAT  BACK WHAT I'VE BEEN TOLD IS 70 PERCENT OF IT IT'S PAST ITS DATE NOW.  AND SO WHAT DID THEY DO WITH THAT. I DON'T. PROBABLY BURY IT OR  SOMETHING. I DON'T KNOW. I MEAN YOU JUST CANNOT USE IT. THAT'S  WHAT I'VE BEEN TOLD THEY DON'T HAVE QUALITY CORN AND THEY  WOULDN'T HAVE AN ETHANOL PLANT BUILT TO USE IT. AND BY THE TIME  ANYWAY I THINK THEY LIKE THAT SHIP SAILED. THEY DON'T LIKE THE  CURRENT PRICE OVER THERE. THE FARMERS DON'T LIKE THE CORN PRICE  OVER THERE. THE GOVERNMENT IS GOING TO HAVE TO COME UP WITH A  SUBSIDY PAYMENT SO THAT THEY CAN PLANT CORN ACRES NEXT YEAR  BECAUSE THEY'RE FARMERS ARE IN THE SAME SITUATION. OUR FARMERS  ARE IN HERE. SO SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE FROM THEIR GOVERNMENT  AND THAT'S WHY THEY'RE GETTING IN THE ETHANOL BUSINESS ALSO. BUT  ANY ANY HINT AT TROUBLE WITH CROP THIS CROPS GOOD THIS YEAR SO YOU  THINK 2018. WE DO NOT SEE CHINA ENTER INTO ARMOR THEY COULD  ENTER IT BECAUSE LIKE THEY'RE FINALLY OUT OF. YOU KNOW THEY'RE  GOING TO BE RUNNING ON THE SHORESIDE OF CORN. BUT FOR THE NEXT 10  MONTHS I MEAN THEY SHOULD HAVE A FAIR AMOUNT BECAUSE THIS  CROP WAS GOOD. BUT LIKE THEY STILL HAVE THAT BEING DEMANDED THAT  WE DEMAND AND ALL THAT STUFF GO INTO THAT CORE WILL BE THE LAST  THING THERE JUST YOU DON'T WANT TO PAY MONEY ON FREIGHT AND PUT  CORN ON WATER. HE'D RATHER PUT BEANS IN THAT TO CONTINUE TO  OVERBUY BEANS. I THINK IT'S A 20:19 THOUGH YOU THINK THAT'S  POSSIBLY IN THE 2018 2019. YEAH I DON'T THINK IT MATTERS BECAUSE  I THINK THE DEMAND SIDE IS GOOD ENOUGH WITH ALL OF THE FEED THAT  IT'LL GO WITH WHATEVER THE MARKET DOES. AND THAT'S HOW THE CORN  MARKET WILL ROLL I THINK. OK. ALL RIGHT. AND JUST LIKE THANKS SO MUCH  FOR BEING WITH US. STAY WITH US WE'LL TAKE A QUICK BREAK AND THEN  WE HAVE WEATHER. NEXT ON AGDAY.

WEATHER
AGDAY WEATHER - BROUGHT TO YOU BY KAWASAKI AND THE NEW  MULE PRO-FXR™ SIDE X SIDE. RIDE LIKE A BOSS WITH HIGH-END  STYLING AND RUGGED CAPABILITY. ) WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY WELL MIKE HAD TO DO A STORY THAT I  WANTED TO DO THIS WEEK. THE FIRST TIME I MENTIONED THE S WORD  SNOW FOR SOME OF OUR VIEWERS. YES SOME OF IT. NORTHERN PLAINS I  SEE IT ON THE MAP WE STILL HAVE SOME VIEWERS OUT THERE TRYING TO  HARVEST YOU KNOW GET THIS CRAP IN IT SOME OF THEM ARE LATER  MOTHER NATURE NOT HELPING IN SOME AREAS . THAT'S PROBABLY TRUE  IN SOME AREAS. HAVEN'T SEEN IT FOR US SO FAR THIS YEAR. PROBABLY  GOING TO GET SOME ACROSS THE NORTHERN AND CENTRAL PLAINS INTO  THE OHIO VALLEY AND THE GREAT LAKES OF COURSE FOR MOST OF THE  GROWING AREAS ESPECIALLY THE CORN BELT. THIS HAS BEEN A YEAR FOR  A LATE FIRST FROST WHICH HAS BEEN HELPING SOME FOLKS AS WELL. SO  THAT IS GOOD AND GOOD NEGATIVE IN THIS. YOU CAN SEE THE RAIN AND  SNOW ACROSS THE NORTHERN PLAINS STATES. STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE  ACROSS MINNESOTA INTO WISCONSIN. NORTHEAST WILL CONTINUE TO GET  RAIN FOR 24 HOURS IN SOME AREAS. THIS IS THE COLDEST AIR OF THE  SEASON DIVING SOUTHWARD AND THAT'S WHY WE'RE GOING TO SEE  SNOW ALL THE WAY DOWN INTO PARTS OF IOWA AS WE HEAD THROUGH  TOMORROW MORNING. RAIN FOR MOST OF THE GREAT LAKES WITH THIS  SYSTEM THOUGH AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH EASTWARD DURING THE  DAY TOMORROW ALTHOUGH KIND OF SLOW UP A LITTLE BIT. SO IT'S NOT  GOING TO BLAST TOWARD THE EAST COAST BUT THERE WILL BE SHOWERS  AND THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPING FROM THE CENTRAL LAKES ALL THE  WAY DOWN INTO THE GULF COAST REGION. THE HEAD OF THAT COLD FRONT  BY LATER TOMORROW. TAKE A LOOK AT PRECIPITATION ESTIMATES OVER  THE PAST 24 HOURS. MOST OF IT HAS BEEN IN THE NORTHEAST. THEN WE  ADDED IN THE NEXT 36 WE'RE GOING TO ADD SOME TO THE NORTHEAST  OBVIOUSLY BUT TO CONTINUE TO PUT DOWN SOME ADDITIONAL MOISTURE  ACROSS THE FAR NORTHERN PLAINS AND SOME AREAS INTO THE CENTRAL  PORTIONS OF THE ROCKIES WITH A LITTLE BIT AHEAD OF THAT COLD FRONT AS  FAR AS SNOWFALL IS CONCERNED SAME IDEA. MOST OF IT IS IN NEW  CENTRAL SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF CANADA OVER THE PAST 36 HOURS.  ADDING IN THE NEXT DAY AND A HALF YOU'LL SEE SOME OF THAT DOES  COME INTO THE FAR NORTHERN PLAINS AND A LITTLE BIT DOWN INTO IOWA  AS WELL AS THE FRONT RANGE OF THE ROCKIES COLORADO WYOMING  AREA. TAKE A LOOK AT THE HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY BRIEFLY WARMER  ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PLAINS WITH 70S AND 80S THERE  BUT HIGHS ONLY IN THE 30S BY THE TIME YOU GET INTO THE FAR  NORTHERN PLAINS 50S FOR A BRIEF WARM UP ACROSS THE OHIO VALLEY  AND THEN YOU CAN SEE THAT COLD AIR SPREADING SOUTH. THESE LOWS  DOWN INTO THE LOWER TO MIDDLE 20S FOR MOST OF THE NORTHERN  ESPECIALLY NORTH WESTERN PLAINS TOMORROW MORNING AND THEN AS  WE HEAD THROUGH THE DAY TOMORROW THAT COLD AIR CONTINUES TO  MOVE SOUTHEAST BUT YOU SEE THE SOUTHEASTERN PORTION OF THE  COUNTRY AREN'T GOING TO BE TOO BAD ALL BECAUSE MULTIPLE TROUGHS  CONTINUE TO DIVE INTO THE MIDWEST AND THE EAST. YOU CAN SEE BY  THE WEEKEND ANOTHER TROUGH COMING IN BY EARLY NEXT WEEK AND  THAT'S JUST GOING TO HOLD THINGS WITH MORE ENERGY DIVING  SOUTHWARD AS WELL SO LOOKS COLDER IN THE EAST WARMER IN THE  WEST THAN WHAT WE'VE SEEN OVER THE PAST SIX WEEKS. THAT'S A  LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL  FORECASTS HEADING TO GREELEY COLORADO. FIRST OF ALL A COLD AND  WINDY. MAYBE A SHOWER. HIGH TEMPERATURE 48. LOTS OF SUNSHINE  AND WELL KNOWN IN MISSISSIPPI AND COMFORTABLE HIGH OF 78. AND  FINALLY ERIE PENNSYLVANIA A MIX OF SUN AND CLOUDS COULD BE A  MORNING SHOWER HIGH 53. 0

TEASE
STILL TO COME, THE CATTLE HERD JUST KEEPS  GROWING. BUT ARE NUMBERS STARTING TO TOP OUT?  PLUS HEAR ABOUT AN AGGRESSIVE STEP TO GET LIFE- SAVING TECHNOLOGY TO RURAL AMERICA TO FEND-OFF  A SILENT KILLER.

DROVERS TV
IN DROVERS TV, THERE'S MORE TALK OF ELI LILLY  SPINNING OFF A PORTION OF ITS ANIMAL HEALTH  BUSINESS.  THE DOW JONES REPRITING ELI LILLY SAYING IT COULD  SELL PART OF IT'S A BUSINESS-- A SEGMENT THAT  BROUGHT IN 15 PERCENT OF THE PHARMACEUTICAL  COMPANY'S REVENUE LAST YEAR.  LILLY'S ELANCO ANIMAL HEALTH BUSINESS SELLS  VACCINES ADN TREATMENTS FOR LIVESTOCK.  ANALYSTS THINK THE SALE COULD COME WITH A  PRICETAG OF 14 TO 16 BILLION DOLLARS... THAT'S IF  EARNINGS CAN KEEP UP WITH MARKET LEADER ZOETIS.  IT WAS A STRONG START TO THE WEEK FOR CATTLE  FUTURES, WITH THE DECEMBER CONTRACTING  TRADING IN A RANGE NOT SEEN SINCE MID-JU THE FRIENDLY PRICE ACTION COMING IN THE ENTIRE  CATTLE COMPLEX, DESPITE A GROWING CATTLE HERD.  FRIDAY, USDA'S LATEST CATTLE ON FEED REPORT  SHOWING CATTLE ON FEED IS UP 5 PERCENT FROM  LAST YEAR.  PLACEMENTS 13 PERCENT ABOVE YEAR AGO LEVELS.  JOE VACLAVIK OF STANDARD GRAIN SAYS WHEN  LOOKING AT PRICES SEASONALLY, THERE'S  POTENTIALLY MORE ROOM FOR PRICES TO MOVE  HIGHER.  MARKET TURNS A LITTLE BIT FRIENDLY  FOR THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER ITS' A LITTLE PREMATURE TO TALK ABOUT  THAT BUT IT'S SOMETHING A LOT OF TRADERS LOOKING FORWARD TO  ESPCIALLY AS SOME OF THESE CONTRACTS ARE MAKING SOME FRESH MULTI MONTH HIGHS> THE STRONG GAINS DESPITE A LARGE COLD STORAGE  REPORT.   OUT EARLIER THIS WEEK, THE REPORT SHOWING A  RECORD AMOUTN OF TOTAL RED MEAT AND POULTRY IN  STORAGE.  BUT BETTER DEMAND IS HELPING EAT THROUGH THE  AMOUNT OF RED MEAT IN FREEZERS COMPARED TO A  YEAR AGO.  TEH REPORT SHOWED TOTAL RED MEAT SUPPLIES  DOWN 5 PERCENT FROM LAST YEAR. BUT SUPPLIES ARE  UP 4 PERCENT FROM LAST MONTH.  LOOKING JUST AT BEEF-- THOSE SUPPLIES DOWN 6  PERCENT FROM LAST YEAR, BUT UP 2 PERCENT FROM  LAST MONTH.  GREG HENDERSON OF DROVERS SAYS DEMAND IS  GOOD, BUT SUPPLIES ARE STILL GROWING.  STERLING MARKETING PRESIDENT JOHN NALIVKA SAYS U.S. BEEF  PRODUCTION WILL BE UP 6% THIS YEAR, WITH ANOTHER 2% INCREASE IN  2018. R.> DESPITE GROWIGN SUPPLIES, HENDERSON SAYS  DEMAND FOR BEEF AND ALL RED MEAT AND POULTRY  REMAINS ROBUST, THAT'S PARTIALLY BECAUSE OF A  GROWING U-S ECONOMY.    BATTLING A SILENT KILLER BY BRINGING THE HOSPITAL  TO THE PATIENT. DETAILS NEXT IN AG FOR YOUR  HEALTH.

IN THE COUNTRY
EVERY 40 SECONDS IN THIS COUNTRY, SOMEONE WILL  HAVE A STROKE. MANY WILL DIE BECAUSE THEY CAN'T  GET TO A HOSPITAL QUICK ENOUGH TO START  TREATMENT. WE CERTAINLY KNOW THAT PROBLEMS  EXISTS IN RURAL AMERICA. . EVEN IF THEY DON'T DIE THEY STILL FACE THE REAL  RISK SEVERE BRAIN DAMAGE. IN RESPONSE UCLA HEALTH HAS LAUNCHED THE FIRST  MOBILE STROKE UNIT ON THE WEST COAST, ENABLING  RAPID DELIVERY OF BRAIN-SAVING TREATMENT. THE SPECIALIZED AMBULANCE UNIT AND SPECIFICALLY- TRAINED PERSONNEL BEGAN RESPONDING IN SEPTEMBER.. RIGHT NOW IT'S RUNNING IN URBAN AREAS. BUT THE  CONCEPT WOULD BE JUST AS VALUABLE IN FARM  COUNTRY WHERE LONG DISTANCES TO THE NEAREST  HOSPITAL CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FULL  RECOVERY AND DISABILITIES THAT CAN CHANGE A  STROKE PATIENT'S LIFE FOREVER.  <DR MAY NOUR/UCLA STROKE RESCUE PROGRAM "BUT WHAT HAPPENS IN  THE RURAL AREAS WHERE PATIENTS CAN'T REALLY REACH A SPECIALIZED  STROKE CARE CENTER ON TIME? I THINK THIS IS WHAT IS REALLY GOING TO  MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN PATIENT OUTCOMES, GETTING THE HOSPITAL  TO THE PATIENT." > "WE NEED TO GET PATIENTS TREATED AS FAST AS POSSIBLE WITH DRUGS  AS WELL AS DEVICES TO REOPEN ARTERIES AND SAVE THE BRAIN BEFORE  THE WINDOW RUNS OUT ON SAVING THAT PRECIOUS RESOURCE." :12 SOT  VERBATIM> THE UNITS ARE ALSO EQUIPPED WITH MULTIPLE 270- DEGREE CAMERAS SO THAT PHYSICIANS CAN SEE AND  DIAGNOSE A PATIENT EVEN IF THEY'RE NOT PHYSICALLY  ON-BOARD.  . THE GOAL OF THE NATIONAL MOBILE STROKE STUDY IS  TO ENCOURAGE FUNDING FOR THESE UNITS SO THAT  MORE HOSPITALS HAVE THEM, OFFERING MORE  STROKE VICTIMS THE CHANCE TO SURVIVE.

CLOSE
THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE  GLAD YOU TUNED IN.  FOR ALL OF US AT AGDAY I'M TYNE MORGAN. HAVE A  GREAT DAY.
