EU TRADE:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. A TRANS-ATLANTIC TRADE DEAL MAY BE IN JEOPARDY AFTER ALLEGATIONS OVER A U.S. SURVEILANCE PROGRAM.

JAPAN WHEAT:

JAPANESE OFFICIALS ARE BUILDING A PLAN TO RESTART IMPORTS OF WHEAT FROM THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. ACCORDING TO CAPITAL PRESS, CONDITIONS INCLUDE THE U-S CONTINUING ITS INVESTIGATION INTO THE GMO WHEAT FOUND IN AN OREGON FIELD. AND THE COUNTRY ALSO WANTS A TESTING METHOD FOR THE PRESENCE OF GM WHEAT TO BE ESTABLISHED.

CROP WATCH:

WHERE'S THE SWEET SPOT IN GROWING ROW CROPS THIS YEAR? MIKE HOFFMAN CLUES US IN DURING THIS MORNING'S CROPWATCH.

FLORIDA PANTHERS:

PREDATORS HAVE LONG BEEN AN ISSUE FOR LIVESTOCK OWNERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. SO MUCH SO THAT MANY WERE HUNTED TO NEAR EXTINCTION. HOWEVER CHANGES IN POLICY AND FEDERAL PROTECTION HAVE ALLOWED ANIMALS LIKE THE GREY WOLF TO MAKE A RESURGENCE. IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA, A SIMILAR SITUATION MAY BE TAKING SHAPE FOR RANCHERS LIVING NEAR A WILDLIFE PRESERVE. 

MISSOURI DONKEYS:

YOU MAY HAVE SEEN THE DONKEY'S IN THE PRIDDY'S PASTURE. A GROWING NUMBER OF RANCHERS AND FARMERS ARE TURNING TO DONKEYS TO PROTECT THEIR LIVESTOCK FROM PREDATORS. THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI SAYS DONKEYS DON'T LIKE THE PREDATORS AND WON'T BACK DOWN FROM A FIGHT, MAKING THE IDEAL GUARD ANIMAL FOR SHEEP AND GOATS.

TRUCK SALES:

IN AGRIBUSINESS, SALES OF PICK UP TRUCKS PROPPED UP AUTOMAKERS IN JUNE.

ANALYSIS:

LAST WEEK, NEW CROP CORN PRICES FLIRTED A FOUR IN FRONT OF THEIR PRICE. WITH SO MUCH RISK FOR THE YEAR 2014, AL PELL LOOKS AHEAD IN THIS MORNING'S ANALYSIS.

I AM ANGUS:

THE DEMAND FOR HIGH QUALITY, AFFORDABLE MEAT IS A GROWING WANT IN THIS COUNTRY. FOR PRODUCERS, IT'S A BALANCING ACT BETWEEN QUANTITY AND QUALITY. IN THIS REPORT FROM THE AMERICAN ANGUS ASSOCIATION, WE MEET ONE WOMAN WHO TAKES THE QUALITY ASPECT TO HEART. AND IT'S A FAMILY BUSINESS, WHERE TRANSPARENCY IS HELPING THEM TAKE THEIR FAMILY RANCH TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL.

GLUTEN FREE COOKOUT:

IN FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY, THE NUMBER OF AMERICANS ON GLUTEN-FREE DIETS IS AT AN ALL TIME HIGH.  SOME PEOPLE CHOOSE TO AVOID GLUTEN, OTHERS HAVE A CONDITION KNOWN AS CELIAC DISEASE. OVER THE LAST FIVE DECADES THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WITH CELIAC DISEASE HAS QUADRUPLED¹ - TODAY NEARLY ONE IN ONE-HUNDRED THIRTY-THREE PEOPLE HAVE IT.  BUT JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO AVOID GLUTEN, DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO MISS OUT ON TRADITIONAL SUMMER COOKOUTS. WITH SOME BARBCUING BASICS FOR GLUTEN-FREE GUESTS, HERE IS CLARK POWELL.
