TODAY ON AGDAY

AUGUST 12, 2013

 

CROP REPORT:

THIS REPORT IS SET TO UPDATE PLANTED ACRES FOR SOYBEANS. THE USDA JUST FINISHED A RESURVEY OF GROWERS AFTER SUCH A DIFFICULT PLANTING SEASON. IT WAS HOPING TO GET A BETTER IDEA OF HOW MANY ACRES WERE SWITCHED FROM CORN TO SOYBEANS.

HURRICANE PREDICTION:

HURRICANE FORECASTERS HAVE SCALED BACK THEIR HURRICANE SEASON FORECAST FOR THIS YEAR. "NOAA" TRIMMED THE NUMBER OF HURRICANES THEY EXPECT IN THE ATLANTIC BASIN TO BETWEEN SIX AND NINE. THEY ALSO UPDATED THE NUMBER OF NAMED STORMS. NAMED STORMS INCLUDES TROPICAL STORMS THAT DO NOT GROW INTO HURRICANES. NOAA WARNS COASTAL RESIDENTS SHOULD NOT BE LULLED INTO COMPLACENCY. THE U.S. IS JUST NOW HEADING INTO THE PEAK OF THE SEASON.

CROP WATCH:

IN CROPWATCH THIS MORNING - WE'RE VISITING FOUR CORNERS OF THE COUNTRY - AND CHECKING ON FOUR DIFFERENT CROPS. MIKE HOFFMAN JOINS US FROM THE AGDAY WEATHER CENTER WITH DETAILS.

CATTLE PRICES:

CATTLE MARKETS WILL LIKELY REACT TO TODAY'S USDA REPORTS AS WELL. THIS FOLLOWING AN ACTIVE WEEK AFTER TYSON ANNOUNCED ITS PENDING BAN OF CATTLE FED THE GROWTH ENHANCER ZILMAX.

NEBRASKA CATTLE NUMBERS:

THE TOP CATTLE PRODUCING STATE COULD SOON LOSE IT'S RANKING. AT LEAST THAT'S THE FORECAST FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA. AND IT ALL HAS TO DO TO ACCESS AND PROXIMITY TO FEED.

NET INCOME:

IN AGRIBUSINESS TODAY, THE OUTLOOK OF NET FARM INCOME MAY BE LOWER, BUT TO DATE, IT'S STILL ON THE RISE.

ANGUS:

FOR SOME OF YOU, KEEPING-UP WITH RECENT "HAPPENINGS" WAS AS SIMPLE AS TALKING ACROSS THE NEIGHBORS FENCE OR LEANING OUT THE WINDOW OF YOUR PICKUP. BUT THESE DAYS SHARING NEWS IS MOSTLY ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE FOR THE MILLENIAL GENERATION. AND FOR THOSE IN THAT GENERATION WHO DECIDE TO RETURN TO THE FARM, SOCIAL MEDIA IS AN IMPORTANT TOOL TO SHARE THE STORY ABOUT MODERN AGRICULTURE. IN THIS REPORT FROM THE AMERICAN ANGUS, ASSOCATION, TENNESSEE RANCHER RYAN GOODMAN TELLS US WHY IT WORKS FOR HIM.

KIDS AT RESTAURANTS:

OFTEN UNPREDICTABLE--KIDS CAN MAKE EATING OUT A CHALLENGE ONCE IN A WHILE. BUT AS A PARENT--I UNDERSTAND. APPARENTLY TOLLERANCE FOR THE INTOLLERABLE IS GROWING THIN AS MORE RESTAURANTS ARE BANNING CHILDREN.

COCOA FOR DIMENTIA:

RECENT WEATHER IN PORTIONS OF THE U-S HAS FELT MORE LIKE FALL THAN SUMMER. I'VE HAD HOT CHOCOLATE ON THE BRAIN. RESEARCEHRS SAY COCOA CAN ACTUALLY HELP YOUR BRAIN IN RETAINING INFORMATION.
