TODAY ON AGDAY
OCTOBER 6, 2016

HEADLINES
COMING UP TODAY ON AGDAY - FARMERS PUSH HARVEST INTO HIGH GEAR AS A  HURRICANE BEARS DOWN. "IT'S GOT THE POTENTIAL TO JUST DEVASTATE THE CROP ENTIRELY." "WE BROKE  OUR PULL-OUT STRAP TWICE YESTERDAY AND THE THINKING RIGHT NOW IS WE  NEED TO WAIT 'TILL TOMORROW TO PULL IT OUT." PLUS "WE'RE AT WORLD DAIRY EXPO IN MADISON, WISCONSIN. WE'LL TELL WHICH TOPICS ARE TOP OF MIND FOR  PRODUCERS AHEAD ON AGDAY." IN AGRIBUSINESS... MAKING HARVEST  DECISIONS.  WE'RE IN THE LOWER THIRD OR FOURTH OF THE MARKET WITH PRICES CURRENTLY AND THAT TELLS US WE SHOULD BE STORING GRAIN. PLUS, THIS RESEARCHER WORRIES LIVESTOCK COULD BE FORCED OFF THE GREAT PLAINS. AND AVOIDING THE MYTHS OF DIABETES. AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE, LONG LASTING CHEVY SILVERADO.

HURRICANE MATTHEW
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. WITH HURRICANE MATTHEW AIMING AT  THE U-S MAINLAND, FARMERS IN THE SOUTHEAST ARE UNDER PRESSURE TO GET HARVEST-READY CROPS OUT OF THE FIELD. "WE HOPE FOR THE BEST BUT WE WANT TO PREPARE FOR THE WORST AND I  WOULD URGE EVERYBODY IN THE AFFECTED STATES OF FLORIDA, GEORGIA, SOUTH CAROLINA, NORTH CAROLINA TO PAY VERY CLOSE ATTENTION TO YOUR LOCAL OFFICIALS."MANY FARMERS IN NORTH CAROLINA ARE TAKING NO CHANCES. THEY'VE BEEN  HARVESTING WHAT THEY CAN. BUT FOR SOME - THIS APPROACHING STORM IS  JUST THE LATEST WEATHER PROBLEM. TOMMY LINDSAY IS TRYING TO GET HIS COTTON CROP PICKED NOW - IN THE  EVENT THAT THE STRONG WINDS-AND-RAIN OF HURRICANE MATTHEW - HIT HARD.BUT TORRENTIAL RAINS LAST WEEK ALREADY PUT A CRIMP IN HIS PLAN. "WELL, I'M STUCK RIGHT NOW. I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET OUT OF THE FIELD TO GO FIND  SOMEWHERE ELSE TO GO TRY TO PICK AND THAT'S WHY I GOT STUCK YESTERDAY; TRYING TO FIND A DRY  SPOT TO GO TO AND I CAN'T FIND ONE.". LINDSAY BROKE HIS PULL STRAP TWICE, TRYING TO RETRIEVE A SUNKEN COTTON  PICKER."THAT'S AS HIGH AS THE HEAD GOES" THIS AREA OF NORTH CAROLINA RECEIVED ANYWHERE FROM NINE-TO-12 INCHES  OF RAIN LAST WEEK, MAKING FIELD WORK IMPOSSIBLE AND RAVAGING A PORTION  OF THE COTTON CROP. ACCORDING TO THE NATIONAL AG STATISTICS SERVICE, JUST FIVE PERCENT OF  THE STATE'S COTTON HAS BEEN PICKED, WHICH IS THE FIVE YEAR AVERAGE.  THE  COTTON BOLLS ARE OPEN ON THREE QUARTERS OF THE CROP. "THAT'S A TYPICAL BOLL OF COTTON RIGHT THERE..."> JOE GILLIS ALSO FARMS IN HOKE COUNTY.  HE'S A FIFTH GENERATION  FARMER...AND KNOWS WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN TO THIS SEASON'S WORK." IT'S GOT THE POTENTIAL TO JUST DEVASTATE THE CROP ENTIRELY. YOU KNOW, IT'S POSSIBLE THERE'D BE  NOTHING THAT WOULD BE WORTH HARVESTING AFTER IF WE GET MUCH WIND AND RAIN."> FIELD WORKERS ARE ALSO HANDPICKING TOBACCO IN ADVANCE OF THE STORM.  BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY - BOTH FARMERS REALIZE THE STORM'S PATH CAN BE FICKLE. YOU KNOW, THE GOOD LORD'S GONNA DO WHAT HE'S GONNA DO TO US AND WE JUST GONNA HAVE TO KEEP THE FAITH AND HOPE THAT BY SOME STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION WE'LL MAKE IT THROUGH AND  STILL BE ABLE TO SALVAGE SOME OF THE CROP."LATE WEDNESDAY, NORTH CAROLINA'S GOVERNOR SAID IT APPEARS THE STORM  COULD BE TRACKING FURTHER EAST. BUT IT WOULD STILL MEAN VERY HEAVY  RAINFALL IN AREAS OF THE STATE.

CHINA ENDING BAN ON U.S. BEEF
CHINA MAKING A MOVE THAT COULD BE BULLISH FOR U-S BEEF DOWN THE ROAD. THIS WEEK, THE COUNTRY ANNOUNCING IT'S ENDING ITS 13 YEAR BAN ON U-S  BEEF AND BEEF PRODUCTS.   IT'S A BAN PUT INTO PLACE IN 2003 AFTER THE UNITED STATES B-S-E SCARE.  THE MOVES OPEN THE DOOR FOR U-S BONE IN BEEF AND BONESS BEEF FOR  LIVESTOCK UNDER 30 MONTHS OF AGE. CHINA IS THE WORLD'S SECOND LARGEST BEEF BUYER, SEEING RAPID GROWTH  OVER THE PAST DECASDE AS THEIR ECONOMY IMPROVES. DURING THE FIRST  SEVEN MONTHS OF 2016, BEEF IMPORTS INTO CHINA SHOT UP 51 PERCENT  COMPARED TO THE SAME TIME LAST YEAR.  ANALYSTS TELL US THEY DON'T EXPECT SHIPMENTS TO START OVERNIGHT, BUT  THE MOVE WILL HELP BOOST U-S BEEF EXPORTS OVER TIME.   CHINA'S GONE TO AUSTRALLIA, THEN THEYH WENT TO BRAZIL, NOW THEY'RE COMIGN TO THE U-S. THEY'RE  LOOKING FOR MORE PLACES TO MOVE BEEF IN THERE, AND I THINK YOU WILL SEE BEEF GROW, BUT IT'S  GOING TO BE A SLOW PACE> REOPENING THE MARKET TO U-S BEEF COULD PROVIDE NEW OPPORTUNTIES  FOR U-S PACKERS, SUCH AS TYSON AND CARGILL, WHICH IS THE LARGEST  PRODUCER OF GROUND BEEF IN THE U-S. 

WORLD DAIRY EXPO
WORLD DAIRY EXPO IS STILL UNDERWAY IN MADISON, WISONSIN WHERE PRICE  AND PRODUCTION ARE TOP OF MIND.  BETSY JIBBEN HAS THE STORY.  U.S. DAIRY PRODUCERS HAVE A GROWING HERD AND GROWING SUPPLIES.  "THE OLD SAYING IN THE U.S. IN THE MILK PRODUCITON WORLD IS WHEN THE MILK PRICES ARE GOOD, MILK MORE COWS AND WHEN THE MILK PRODUCTION IS BAD, MAKE SURE YOU MILK MORE COWS. IT COMES  DOWN TO WHO BLINKS FIRST!" THOSE LARGE HERD NUMBERS ARE PRODUCING.. CREATING A GLUT OF PRODUCT. SUPPLIES THAT NEED A GLOBAL MARKET.  "THE GLOBAL TRADE AUCTION HAS SEEM SOME STRENGTH OVER THE LAST 2 MONTHS. IN TERMS OF  CHEESE, ARE ARE STARTING TO GET COMPETITIVE. WE HAVEN'T TURNED THE CORNER YET. BUT SOME OF  OUR CHEESE EXPORTERS HAVE BEEN TAKING ORDERS. HOPEFULLYW ECAN MOVE THIS STUFF OFFSHORE,"  AND THAT PRODUCT NEEDS TO MOVE- "WE'RE AT THE CRUZ RIGHT NOW TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IF WE'RE GOING TO BE AN EXPORTER OR IMPORTER LIKE WE HAVE THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS. IF THE MARKTS CONTINUE TO CONVERGE, THEN I EXPECT  EXPORTS TO PICK UP. THAT MAY BE GOOD NEWS AS WE GET INTO SPRING. BUT THAT TAKES TIME TO  DEVELOP," REGARDLESS WITH SUCH LARGE SUPPLIES, ANALYSTS SAY THE PRESSURE ON PRICES WILL CONTINUE.  "IN THE SHORT-TERM, I WOULD EXPECT SOFTER MARKETS AND WE'RE LOOKING AT LOWER PRICES AS WE  HEAD TOWARDS THE END OF THE FOURTH QUARTER IN 2016. AND FIRST QUARTER OF 2017," NORTH SAYS  MILK PRICES WILL NEED TO MOVE HIGHER TO GET MARGINS BACK IN THE BLACK.  "AS WE LOOK AT BENCH MARKS TOWARD PROFITABILITY, WE'LL NEED TO SEE ONE OR TWO DOLLARS AT LEAST. IN SOME REGIONS, WE WILL NEED TO SEE 3 OR 4 DOLLARS A HUNDRED WEIGHT,"  "PEOPLE ARE PROBABLY BREAK EVEN OR A LITTLE BIT BETTER. BUT THE CONCERN AS WE LOOK INTO 2017 IF  THOSE PRICES MAINTAIN." "AND PRODUCERS SAY THEY'RE LOOKING AT LOCKING IN FEED COSTS SINCE THOSE PRICES HAVE COME  DOWN." TO BOOK A YEARS WORTH OF FEED AT 10 YEAR LOW PRICES, YOU HAVE TO ASK THE QUESTION, WHY NOT? THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO BUY CHEAPER THAN PRODUCED. LOCK IT UP." "PROBABLY IN THE NEXT 30 TO 60 DAYS WE WILL LOCK IN FEED FO RHTE FOLLOWING YEAR." DURING A TIME WHEN WORLD MARKETS MAY BE UNCERTAIN, U.S. PRODUCERS HOPE FOR A  TURN AROUND TO RETURN. "WE HAD A GOOD PRICE INCREASE RECENTLY, IF YOU WERE ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT AND SELL  SOME Q4 OR Q1 MILK, YOU'RE OK. NO ONE IS GETTING WEALTHY NOW BUT YOU CAN SURVIVE AND  MAINTAIN YOUR WAY OF LIFE. IF YOU DIDN'T YOU ARE STARTING OT FEEL THE PINCH AGAIN OF LOWER  PRICES," REPORTING IN MADISON, WISCONSIN, I'M BETSY JIBBEN. 

CROP COMMENTS
CROP COMMENTS IS POWERED BY RESICORE HERBICIDE FOR CORN, FROM  DOW AGROSCIENCES. LET'S GET YOUR FIRST LOOK AT FARM COUNTRY WEATHER. HERE'S CINDI  CLAWSON. GOOD MORNING, CLINTON. IT'S GO-TIME FOR FARMERS IN NORTHERN INDIANA. USDA SAYS 24 PERCENT OF CORN AND 15 PERCENT OF THE STATE'S SOYBEANS HAVE BEEN HARVESTED. AND IN NORTHERN ILLINOIS,  COMBINES AREN'T THE ONLY THING ROLLING- FIELD IS UNDERWAY AS WELL  DURING HARVEST.  AND NOW HERE ARE SOME HOMETOWN TEMPS. 

TEASE
STILL TO COME - STORE OR SELL YOUR GRAIN?  BRYAN DOHERTY OFFERS HIS  INSIGHT NEXT IN AGRIBUSINESS. FROM DROVERS - COULD THE U-S LIVESTOCK SECTOR BE FORCED TO FIND A  NEW HOME? INTERNET SITES MAY CLAIM TO HAVE THE MAGIC CURE FOR DIABETES, BUT THEY  MIGHT BE DANGEROUS. DETAILS IN AG FOR YOUR HEALTH.

FLOOR OF THE CME
AGRIBUSINESS TODAY, BROUGHT TO YOU BY YAMAHA - MAKERS OF VIKING SIDE-BY-SIDES.  YAMAHA - REAL WORLD TOUGH.  IN AGRIBUSINESS TODAY, NEW NUMBERS FROM THE COMMERCE DEPARTMENT  SENDING MIXED SIGNALS ON TRADE. THE U.S. TRADE DEFICIT ROSE 3 PERCENT IN AUGUST ON A FLOOD OF  IMPORTS...INCLUDING FOREIGN OIL, AUTOS AND AIRCRAFT. EXPORTS HOWEVER, SAW THEIR BEST SHOWING IN 13 MONTHS...MAKING IT THE FOURTH STRAIGHT MONTHLY EXPORT INCREASE. LETS JUMP OVER TO CHICAGO AND THE FLOOR OF THE CME FOR A LOOK AT WEDNESDAY'S TRADE. WHEAT AND CORN LOOKED TO HAVE FOUND A BOTTOM. IN FACT WHEAT ACTUALLY  AFTER HAVING A BIG SELL-OFF YESTERDAY, REALLY POPPED PRETTY GOOD DAY,  UP ABOUT ELEVEN OR TWELVE CENTS. AND LOOKS TO HAVE FOUND THAT BOTTOM DOWN AROUND THE THREE-80 LEVEL AND WE CAME HALFWAY BACK RETRACE AND AND NOW WE'RE PUSHING FOR FORWARD. CORN WE WATCHED  THREE FORTY FIVE, THREE FORTY FIVE, AND FINALLY CORN BROKE OUT OVER  THREE FORTY FIVE. AND EARLIER TODAY WHEN THE MARKET WHEN IT WAS  UNDER PRESSURE. CORN WAS ABLE TO HOLD UP THAT THREE FORTY FIVE AND  NOW IS BACK UP THE THREE FORTY NINE, THREE FIFTY LEVEL. WE HAD A LITTLE BIT OF A TURNAROUND IN AND AND FEEDERS YESTERDAYS WHICH WE RAN UP TO  ONE TWENTY EIGHT AND THEN FAILED. AND NOW THEY'RE LURKING AROUND  THAT ONE TWENTY EIGHT LEVEL. I THINK THE ONE TWENTY EIGHT LEVEL IN THE  FEEDERS HAS TO GO THROUGH IT OR WE'RE GONNA SEE PROBABLY SOME MORE  SELLING. SO THIS GOING TO BE A VERY KEY COUPLE OF DAYS COMING UP. THE  BIGGEST CONCERN HERE IS THE HOG MARKET. HOGS SEEM TO BE FINDING AN  AREA NOW. THIS IS TODD HORWITZ, BUBBATRADING.COM COMING TO YOU FROM  THE FLOOR OF THE CME IN CHICAGO. AS HARVEST ROLLS ON, FARMERS CONTINUE FACE THE CHALLENGING DECISION  OF STORING GRAIN OR SELLING OFF THE COMBINE.

AGRIBUSINESS
TYNE MORGAN JOINS US FROM THE AGRIBUSINESS DESK WITH MORE. WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY HERE WITH BRIAN DOHERTY OF STEWART PETERSON.  BRIAN HARVEST GOING ON HEARING OF SOME AMAZING SOYBEAN YIELDS OUT  THERE. CORN ARE KIND OF A MIXED BAG BUT FOR THOSE IN THE COMBINE  HARVESTING RIGHT NOW LOOKING WHAT SHOULD THEY BE DOING WITH ALL  THIS GRAIN? YOU BET. LET'S START WITH CORN AND I'M GONNA TRY AND SIMPLIFY  THIS CORN IS BASICALLY AT THREE STAGES THIS YEAR IN PRICE. FOUR DOLLARS  TO FOUR FIFTY, THREE FIFTY TO FOUR DOLLARS, AND THREE DOLLARS TO THREE  FIFTY. WE'RE IN THE LOWER THIRD OR FOURTH OF THE MARKET WHERE PRICES  CURRENTLY ARE AND THAT TELLS US WE SHOULD BE STORING GRAIN. HOWEVER  WHAT I WANT FARMERS TO THINK ABOUT IS TO SELL THE CARRY IN THE MARKET,  SHOP BASIS, SELL THE CARRY IN THE MARKET. REINVEST GO BACK AND BUY A  JULY CALL OPTION. BUY A THREE FIFTY, THREE SIXTY VOLATILITY IS LOW. THEY'RE  GOOD VALUE. YOU STAND IN FRONT OF THE MARKET FOR A LONG PERIOD TIME.  I'VE BEEN AT THIS TWENTY SEVEN YEARS AND TYPICALLY THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS.  FARMERS FIND THEMSELVES SELLING GRAIN ON OUT ON A SMALL RALLY WOULD MAKE SOME SENSE.THEY GET A LITTLE PAY RAISE, THEY SELL GRAIN MARKETS  MOVE MORE. THEN THEY WANT TO RE-OWN AND THEN END UP BUY A CALL  OPTION WAY OUT OF THE MONEY AND COMPLAIN THAT IT DOESN'T WORK. IT'S A  TOUGH GAME WHEN YOU'RE DOING THAT SO STAND IN FRONT OF THE MARKET  WITH THEIR CALL OPTIONS NOW AND EITHER SELL THE GRAIN INTO THE CARRY  OR BUY THE CALLS NOW SO THE MARKET RALLIES YOU CAN SELL INTO THAT  RALLY WITH CONFIDENCE. IN THIS LATEST GRAIN STOCKS REPORT THAT USDA RELEASED WE SAW ON FARM STORAGE, IT'S UP FROM A YEAR AGO WHICH WAS  EXPECTED RIGHT BECAUSE WE HAVEN'T HAD A TON OF OPPORTUNITIES TO SELL A REALLY PROFITABLE LEVELS THIS YEAR. WE HAVEN'T AND IN THE LAST TWO  YEARS IT'S THE SAME STORY. WE WOULD JUST GET STARTED INTO A WEATHER  EVENT IN IN JUNE BOTH YEARS AND IT'S OVER BEFORE YOU CAN BLINK. SO THE  ONLY WAY TO REALLY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A MARKET THERE IS AMPLE  INVENTORY AND A GOOD RALLY IS TO SELL INTO THE RALLY THE PROBLEM IS AS  WE RAN INTO THIS YEAR OR WE HEARD FROM MANY PRODUCERS AFTER THE  MARKET DROP WAS I WAS GOING A SELL, I INTENDED TO SELL, I DIDN'T SELL  ENOUGH. DON'T FIND YOURSELF IN THAT POSITION. GET YOURSELF BALANCED REINVEST IN PAPER. I'D BE LIGHT IN INVENTORY, STRONG ON PAPER. HERE'S  ANOTHER REASON WHY. AS PRICES RALLY BASIS LEVELS ARE LIKELY TO WIDEN  OUT. THANKS BRYAN. STAY WITH US. WE'RE BACK WITH MORE AGDAY IN JUST A MOMENT.

NATIONAL WEATHER
WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY, CINDI CLAWSON IN FOR MIKE HOFFMAN TODAY. CINDI,  AS WE LOOK AT THE WEATHER MAP, THE SYSTEM RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE  COUNTRY THAT LOW COULD MAYBE BRING SOME SNOW A LITTLE FURTHER EAST.  I KNOW, BELIEVE IT OR NOT THERE'S SOME COLD AIR COMING ON THE BACKSIDE  OF THAT LOW AND SO SOME FOLKS IN THE PLAINS MIGHT SEE A LITTLE BIT OF  THAT. LET'S GO STRAIGHT TO THE MAP. AND YOU'LL SEE THAT THAT LOW  PRESSURE OVER KANSAS AT THIS POINT. WHAT WE ARE SEEING SOME COOLER AIR BEING BROUGHT INTO THE BACKSIDE OF THAT LOW. SO AS IT MOVES UP TO  THE NORTH, YOU'LL NOTICE SOME OF THAT SNOW AFFECTING PARTS,  POTENTIALLY, OF NEBRASKA AS WELL. MOST OF THE MOISTURE WITH THIS  WHOLE FRONTAL SYSTEM IS GOING TO BE RIGHT AROUND THAT LOW IN THAT  LOW WILL CONTINUE ITS NORTHWARD PUSH. SO AS WE HEAD INTO FRIDAY, WE'RE  GOING TO BE SEEING THAT MOVING UP INTO THE UPPER LAKES AND THEN THE TRAILING PART OF THE FRONT THERE NOT A LOT OF MOISTURE WITH THAT ONCE  THE LOW PUSHES UP TO INTO CANADA. AND A HIGH PRESSURE SETTLES IN RIGHT BEHIND THAT. OF COURSE ALL EYES ARE GONNA BE ON THE SOUTHEASTERN  COAST THERE TO SEE HOW MATTHEW IS PROGRESSING BUT IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S  GOING TO BE A PRETTY DECENT WEEKEND FOUR SOME HARVEST ACTIVITIES IN  THE NATION'S MIDSECTION. ALL RIGHT LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THE PRECIPITATION  ESTIMATES OVER THE PAST TWENTY FOUR HOURS HAS BEEN KINDA THE  ORIGINAL LOW. AND THAN YOU CAN SEE THAT SECONDARY LOW THAT'S GONNA  BE MOVING UP INTO THE GREAT LAKES. THAT COULD BE PUTTING DOWN A  DECENT AMOUNT OF RAIN OVER TWO INCHES OR EVEN THREE INCHES IN SOME SPOTS ESPECIALLY IN SOUTHEASTERN KANSAS, IS WHAT OUR MODELS  PROJECTING. THEN OF COURSE MATTHEW IS GOING TO BE MAKING HEADLINES  FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS HERE IS A LOOK HERE AT YOUR SNOWFALL  ESTIMATE AND FUTURE TO OUR FUTURE MODEL IS ACTUALLY SHOWING AGAIN  JUST A LITTLE BIT OF SNOW IN NEBRASKA BUT A LOT OF FOLKS JUST AREN'T  QUITE READY FOR THAT JUST YET. HERE'S A LOOK AT TEMPERATURES AND YOU CAN SEE THE COOLEST TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER FORTIES AROUND FIFTY.  THERE'S GONNA BE SOME AREAS A LITTLE COOLER THAN THAT AND PART OF THE  NORTHERN PLAINS GETTING INTO THE NORTHWEST. STILL LOOK AT THAT.  EIGHTIES EVEN LOW NINETIES IN PART TO THE SOUTH CENTRAL UNITED STATES  MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE IN THE NORTHEAST. HEADING INTO THE OVERNIGHT  HOURS WE'LL SEE THOSE CHILLY TEMPERATURES START TO SPREAD FURTHER  EAST AS THAT COLD LIGHT FINALLY STARTS TO MOVE EAST AS WELL. LOW  TEMPERATURES DOWN INTO THE LOWER THIRTIES MAYBE SOME UPPER  TWENTIES IN SPOTS. 50S AND 60S IN MOST OF THE EASTERN PART OF THE  UNITED STATES. A FEW SEVENTIES FURTHER SOUTH AND THAT AS WE HEAD  THROUGH TOMORROW TEMPERATURES AGAIN BE A COOLER AIR CONTINUES TO  SPREAD FURTHER EAST INTO THE CORN BELT NOW AS FAR AS JET STREAM IS  CONCERNED, YOU CAN SEE THAT TROUGH THAT FRONT IS AHEAD OF THAT WHEN  YOU SEE THAT RIDGE IN THE EAST BUT THAT'S GOING TO THAT MOVE OFFSHORE  AND THEN TEMPERATURES KINDA STABILIZE. A LITTLE BIT MORE SEASONABLE.  WARMER TEMPERATURES REMAINING SOUTH OF THE JET,KIND OF RIDE OVER  THE BORDER AND INTO CANADA AS WE HAD THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK.

REGIONAL WEATHER

BEAR VALLEY WISCONSIN SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WITH HIGH OF SEVENTY TWO AND DEER RIVER  NEW YORK SUNNY AND WARMER WITH A HIGH OF SEVENTY THREE.

TEASE
NEXT IN OUR DROVERS REPORT - AN IMPORTANT WATER SUPPLY CONTINUES TO  SHRINK. WHAT AFFECT COULD THAT HAVE ON THE U-S LIVESTOCK INDUSTRY. CAN SPRINKLING CINNAMON ON YOUR EGGS HELP CONTROL DIABETES? ARE YOU  WILLING TO BET YOUR LIFE ON IT? MEDICAL EXPERTS WEIGH-IN. THIS IS MACHINERY PETE - INVITING YOU TO CHECK OUT MY NEW WEBSITE - MACHINERYPETE.COM - OFFERING FARMERS TENS OF THOUSANDS OF USED  EQUIPMENT LISTINGS TO SEARCH.  LET MACHINERY PETE HELP YOU FIND AND  VALUE YOUR NEXT PIECE OF USED EQUIPMENT. 

DROVERS TV
DROVERS TV IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY MERCK ANIMAL HEALTH - THE MAKERS  OF ZUPREVO.  TALK TO YOUR  VETERINARIAN ABOUT ZUPREVO, FOR THE  TREATMENT OF BOVINE RESPIRATORY DISEASE.  IN NEWS FROM OUR PARTNERS AT DROVERS - COULD THE U-S LIVESTOCK  INDUSTRY SHIFT AWAY FROM THE HIGH PLAINS AS IT CHASES AN ABUNDANT  WATER SUPPLY? A NOTED HYDROLOGIST FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT IRVINE SAYS A  DECLINING OGALLALA AQUIFER COULD EVENTUALLY MEAN SUCH A MIGRATION. HE SAYS OVER HALF OF THE WORLD'S AQUIFERS ARE BEING DEPLETED AT RATES  THAT ARE UNSUSTAINABLE, INCLUDING THE OGALLALA WHICH COVERS EIGHT  STATES. DROVERS SAYS THE AQUIFER SUPPLIES 30% OF THE WATER USED IN U-S  AGRICULTURE. "WHEN YOU LOOK AT KANSAS, NEB AND OKLAAOMA, LOOKING AT....PRODUCING A LOT OF GRAINS, A LOT  OF CORN,,,WE MAYBE NEEDING SOME HELP FROM OTHER STATES. WEU USE MORE THAN WH.....THE RESEARCHER USES SATELLITES TO DEVELOP COMPUTER MODELS TO TRACK  HOW FRESH WATER AVAILABILITY IS CHANGING ALL OVER THE WORLD. FAMIGLIETTI TELLING DROVERS, A LOT OF WATER USE IS  UNREGULATED. THE COUNTRY NEEDS TO COME UP WITH A STRATEGY FOR  SUSTAINABLE GLOBAL FOOD PRODUCTION.  ON THE BUSINESS FRONT, CARGILL REPORTING A 66 PERCENT RISE IN  QUARTERLY NET PROFIT. IT'S FIRST QUARTER POSTING NET INCOME OF 852 MILLION HELPED ALONG BY  LOWER BEEF PRICE AND INCREASING CATTLE SUPPLIES. THE COMPANY SAYS THAT'S HELPING SPUR DEMAND. CARGILL IS ALSO IN A RESTRUCTURING PHASE AS IT STREAMLINES ITS BUSINESS  FOCUS.

TEASE
STILL TO COME, A WARNING ABOUT GIMMICKS ON THE INTERNET THAT TARGET  THOSE WITH DIABETES. 

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. ) MORE THAN TWENTY-NINE MILLION AMERICANS LIVE WITH DIABETES¹, AND  CONTROLLING IT TAKES A COMPLETE LIFESTYLE COMMITMENT. BUT FADS AND  MYTHS PROMISING AN EASIER WAY TO CONTROL DIABETES OFTEN DISTRACT  FROM THIS MESSAGE. CLARK POWELL HAS OUR STORY. JIM MEOAK (ME-OKE) WORKS WITH A DIETICIAN TO LEARN HOW DIFFERENT  FOODS AFFECT HIS BLOOD SUGAR. HE RELIES ON ADVICE FROM EXPERTS TO  CONTROL HIS DIABETES, BUT WHEN HE WAS DIAGNOSED, THE ENDLESS LIST OF  PRODUCTS, DIETS, AND EVEN PILLS PROMISING TO CONTROL HIS CONDITION  WERE OVERWHELMING. "LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE, I GOOGLED ALL THE THINGS I COULD TO FIND OUT  WHAT TO DO." ELIZABETH SNYDER IS A CERTIFIED DIABETES EDUCATOR AT THE OHIO  STATE UNIVERSITY WEXNER MEDICAL CENTER. SHE HAS SEEN PATIENTS WHO'VE  TRIED FADS AS FAR FETCHED AS HERBAL CLEANSES, PUTTING CINNAMON ON  THEIR EGGS AND CUTTING OUT ALL WHITE FOODS. BUT SHE SAYS THE FACT IS  THERE IS NO MAGIC CURE FOR DIABETES. "THERE'S THESE FUNKY, WACKO THINGS THAT ARE  SHORT-LIVED, OR ARE VERY CHALLENGING TO KEEP UP WITH -- ARE THEY HARMFUL? IF YOU GET INTO THE  SUPPLEMENT WORLD, MAYBE." SNYDER SAYS THE ONLY PILLS YOU SHOULD TAKE ARE  THE ONES PRESCRIBED BY YOUR DOCTOR, AND THAT THE BEST WAY TO  CONTROL DIABETES IS WITH EXERCISE AND A BALANCED DIET. BUT THAT MEANS  LEARNING ABOUT WHAT IS ACTUALLY HEALTHY, BECAUSE PRODUCTS THAT USE  BUZZWORDS LIKE "SUGAR-FREE" OR "MADE WITH WHOLE GRAINS" AREN'T  ALWAYS A GOOD CHOICE. SO YOU HAVE TO TURN THE PACKAGE OVER AND KNOW  HOW TO READ THE LABEL. "A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK THAT THE SUGAR ON THE LABEL EQUATES TO  BLOOD SUGAR, BUT THAT'S NOT TRUE. IT'S GOING TO BE ANYTHING THAT'S STARCH OR CARBOHYDRATE,  INCLUDING SUGAR." SNYDER HELPED JIM LEARN THESE KEY NUTRITIONAL RULES, AND  HE'S MAKING CHANGES THAT WILL KEEP HIS BLOOD SUGAR AT A HEALTHY LEVEL.  "YOU CAN GET IT UNDER CONTROL, BUT IT'S A COMPLETE LIFESTYLE CHANGE." AT OHIO STATE  WEXNER MEDICAL CENTER, THIS IS CLARK POWELL REPORTING.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN. FOR BETSY JIBBEN AND CINDI CLAWSON.I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. HAVE A GREAT DAY.
