OPENING HEADLINES:
WELCOME TO U.S. FARM REPORT. I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS IN FOR TYNE MORGAN, AND HERE'S WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON OVER THE NEXT HOUR.
CHRISTMAS CATASTROPHE... A MASSIVE STORM DUMPS AND RAIN SNOW ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
SWINE SWELL--HOGS AND PIGS CLIMB TO RECORD NUMBERS.

U.S. FARM REPORT -BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE, LONG LASTING, CHEVY SILVERADO.>
MARKETS:
NOW FOR THE NEWS THAT MOVED THE MARKETS THIS WEEK... IT WAS ANOTHER SHORT HOLIDAY WEEK FOR TRADERS. GRAINS HOWEVER SEEING A FEW RIPPLES IN THE CHART.
EARLIER IN THE WEEK, MARCH CORN FUTURES MAKING NEW CONTRACT LOWS. PRICES BREAKING THROUGH SUPPORT AND TRADING NEAR THE 3.60 LEVEL. BIG GLOBAL SUPPLIES, WEAK EXPORT DEMAND AND FRESH COMPETITION FROM ARGENTINA CONTINUES TO WEIGH ON THE MARKET.
LARGE NET SHORT POSITIONS ALSO PRESSURING MARKETS WITH SHORT COVERINGS AS THE YEAR ENDS. ON THE SOYBEAN SIDE, RAINS IN BRAZIL IMPROVING THE PICTURE FOR CROPS...AT LEAST FOR NOW.
WHILE ARGENTINA LIVING UP TO PRE ELECTION PROMISES ISN'T WASTING TIME IMPACTING GLOBAL TRADE.
NEW REPORTS OF UP TO 100-THOUSAND TONS OF SOYBEAN MEAL AND CORN IS HEADED FOR THE SOUTHEAST THANKS NEW PRICE ADVANTAGES...AROUND TAXES AND CURRENCY VALUES.
FLOODING:
BASIS FINDING STRENGTH IN PLACES THANKS TO HEAVY RAINS AND FLOODING THROUGH THE COUNTRY'S MIDSECTION.
SOUTHEASTERN IOWA AND SOUTH THROUGH ILLINOIS AND MISSOURI SEEING HEAVY RAINS--10 AND 12 INCHES CAUSING HISTORIC FLOODING ALONG RIVERS AND CREEKS. THE U-S ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS SAYS BARGE TRAFFIC STOPPED THIS WEEK NEAR ST LOUIS. LIVESTOCK AND EQUIPMENT WERE FORCED TO HIGHER GROUND. SEVERAL STATES HAVE ISSUED EMERGENCIES...THE MISSISSISSIPPI WAS EXPECTED TO CREST 14 FEET ABOVE FLOOD LEVEL.
THE SAME STORM THAT BROUGHT MASSIVE RAINS STARTED AS A BLIZZARD OUT WEST. NEW MEXICO AND TEXAS GETTING 50 MILE PER HOUR WINDS AND UP TO 2 FEET OF SNOW. DRIFTS WERE FOUND UP TO 14 FEET HIGH.
LIVESTOCK NUMBERS:
THE BREEDING HERD (6 MILLION) IS UP ONE PERCENT AND THE MARKET HOG SUPPLY (62.3) IS ALSO UP ONE PERCENT....IT TOO IS RECORD HIGH GOING BACK TO THE 80'S. THE NUMBER OF SAVED PIGS-PER-LITTER ALSO AT RECORD LEVELS--NEARLY 10 AND A HALF. A BIG DIFFERENCE FROM RECENT YEARS AS FARMERS OVERCOME CHALLENGES FROM THE PED-VIRUS.
WHILE ON THE CATTLE SIDE, LAST WEEK'S PRICE RALLY HELPING LIFT FEEDER PROFITS. THE STERLING PROFIT TRACKER SHOWS CATTLE PRICES PRODUCING A 20PERCENT IMPROVEMENT IN FEEDER MARGINS, THAT'S A 150-DOLLAR PER HEAD INCREASE, HOWEVER, FEEDYARDS STILL LOST NEARLY 550-DOLLARS ($546) FOR EVERY ANIMAL SHIPPED LAST WEEK.
CROP WATCH:
THOSE ARE THE HEADLINES...METEOROLOGIST CINDI CLAWSON IS IN FOR MIKE HOFFMAN THIS WEEK. CINDI THESE BIG STORMS ARE REALLY STARTING TO IMPACT THE DROUGHT SITUATION IN THE COUNTRY.
CROP WATCH THIS WEEK...
THAT'S RIGHT CLINTON WE'VE REALLY TAKEN A BIG BITE OUT OF DROUGHT ALTHOUGH WE STILL HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO IN THE WEST. THE AREAS WHERE WE'VE SEEN THE BEST IMPROVEMENT, RIGHT DOWN HERE IN THE SOUTHERN PLAINS WERE WE'RE NOT SEEING DROUGHT ANYMORE AT ALL IN TEXAS AND IN NEW MEXICO AND STILL JUST A LITTLE BIT DRY IN PARTS OF ARIZONA STILL HAVE A LOT TO WORK ON THOUGH IN MUCH OF THE WESTERN PARTS OF THE UNITED STATES. 
TEASE:
WHEN WE COME BACK, ANDY SHISSLER AND BRIAN BASTING JOIN ME TO DISCUSS MARKETS AS WE KICK OFF 2016.
ROUNDTABLE 1:
WELCOME BACK TO U.S. FARM REPORT.
JOINING ME TODAY ANDY SHISSLER, S&W TRADING, AND WE HAVE BRIAN BASTING WITH ADVANCED TRADING.
WELCOME. I'M GLAD YOU BOTH ARE HERE ON THE FIRST SHOW OF THE 2016 YEAR.
OF COURSE, WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO TODAY IS WE'RE GOING TO SAVE THIS AND GO BACK AND PLAY IT AT THE END OF NEXT YEAR AND SEE IF YOU'RE BOTH RIGHT. >> NO, MAYBE NOT, NOT FAIR.
LET'S START BY TALKING ABOUT 2015, BRIAN, AND TELL US WHAT WERE YOUR BIG MOMENTS OF 2015?
WHAT DID YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THIS YEAR?
>> CLINTON, FIRST OF ALL HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND ALL YOUR VIEWERS OUT THERE. LOOKING FORWARD TO 2016, OF COURSE. THERE'S ALWAYS TWISTS AND TURNS IN THE MARKETS AND IN 2015 THE BIGGEST THING THAT COMES TO MY MIND RIGHT AWAY IS PREPAREDNESS. WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY, FOR EXAMPLE, IN CORN AND SOYBEAN MARKET THE ENTIRE CALENDAR YEAR CAME DOWN TO ABOUT A THREEX1E;WEEK WINDOW IN THAT LATE JUNE, EARLY JULY TIME PERIOD WHEN THE MARKET RALLIED.
>> BRIAN, AS WE WRAP UP THIS YEAR, WELL, WE'VE WRAPPED IT, I GUESS. WE'VE WRAPPED UP 2015, WE'RE MOVING ON TO 2016. HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR THAT YEAR AHEAD?
>> I THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT THING, CLINTON, IS GOING FORWARD IS TO NOT BOX YOURSELF IN A CORNER, IF YOU WILL, AS A GRAIN PRODUCER IN PARTICULAR. AND BY THAT I MEAN IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO DO SOME FORWARD PRICING GIVE YOURSELF SOME FLEXIBILITY TO BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN RALLIES SHOULD THEY COME. I'M NOT PREDICTING RALLIES, BUT THERE'S CERTAINLY A LOT OF VARIABLES OUT THERE THAT COULD GIVE THE MARKET A BOOST, WHETHER IT'S SOUTH AMERICA, DEMAND TRENDS, U.S. WEATHER TRENDS, BUT REALLY BE CAREFUL IN TERMS OF MARKETING.
TEASE:
WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE U.S. FARM REPORT IN JUST A FEW MINUTES.
ROUNDTABLE 2:
>> WELCOME BACK TO U.S. FARM REPORT. ANDY SHISSLER, BRIAN BASTING OUR GUESTS HERE TODAY. BRIAN, LET'S TALK REAL QUICK ABOUT THE JANUARY REPORTS THAT COME OUT. THERE'S QUITE A BIT OF GOOD INFORMATION THAT WE'RE EXPECTING MIDDLE OF THE MONTH FROM USDA. >> JANUARY 12TH, CLINTON, THERE'S FOUR REPORTS COMING OUT FROM USDA. THE FINAL CROP SIZE FOR CORN AND BEANS FOR 2015. GRAIN STOCKS REPORT ONLY COMES OUT FOUR TIMES A YEAR.
MARKETS NOW:
TIME FOR MARKETS NOW. WE'LL START WITH BRIAN BASTING, GO AHEAD.
>> I THINK WE'VE ESTABLISHED A THEME IF YOU WILL, FOR THE WINTER MARKETING MEETINGS, CLINTON, AND IT'S NOT ABOUT PREDICTING PRICE. IT'S ABOUT PROTECTING PRICE. GOING FORWARD INTO 2016 THERE ARE GOING TO BE TWISTS AND TURNS WE DON'T SEE TODAY. MARKETS ARE NEGATIVE RIGHT NOW WHETHER YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT CORN, SOYBEANS, WHEAT, CATTLE, HOGS, MILK, BUT THERE ARE GOING TO BE TWISTS AND TURNS AND OPPORTUNITIES ARISE. RATHER THAN TRYING TO PREDICT WHAT PRICE IS GOING TO DO AND WHEN THAT'S GOING TO OCCUR, BE PREPARED TO PROTECT AN OPPORTUNITY WHEN IT DOES ARISE.
TEASE:
WE'LL BE BACK WITH JOHN PHIPPS RIGHT AFTER THESE MESSAGES.
WHERE CAN YOU TALK MARKETS TODAY? JOIN CHIP FLORY FIVE DAYS A WEEK FOR MARKET RALLY RADIO-
ALL MARKETS, ALL THE TIME.
JOHN’S WORLD:
JOHN PHIPPS IS SPENDING A LITTLE TIME WITH THE CALCULATOR THIS HOLIDAY SEASON WORKING ON PLANS FOR A NEW YEAR.
JOHN. WHILE I HAVE BEEN SORTA WORKING ON PLANS FOR 2016 ALL YEAR, IT SEEMS LIKE I ALWAYS GET DOWN TO THE TRICKY DETAILS IN THE WEEK BETWEEN CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR'S DAY. SO THIS WEEK I'VE BEEN HUNCHED OVER MY COMPUTER TRYING TO GET THE RIGHT ANSWER.
THIS PROCESS CALLED TO MIND ONE OF MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE SCIENTIFIC CARTOONS BY THE FAMED CARTOONIST SYDNEY HARRIS. I'VE RUN INTO THIS SITUATION TOO MANY TIMES, AND IT LOOKS LIKE 2016 IS ANOTHER CASE. FARMERS HAVE THE FIRST STEPS OF OUR PLAN PRETTY WELL NAILED DOWN, WE WANT TO GROW CORN OR SOYBEANS OR WHEAT OR HOGS. WE ALSO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER: WE MAKE A PROFIT AND PROSPER.
TEASE:
HA. THANKS JOHN WISHING YOU MANY PEACEFUL NIGHTS IN THE YEAR AHEAD.
ALRIGHT... STILL TO COME....ON US FARM REPORT… A LOOK AT AN ANIMAL WELFARE PROGRAM THAT'S GAINING ACCEPTANCE IN THE DAIRY INDUSTRY. THE INSPIRATIONAL TALE OF A MISSOURI BASKETBALL PLAYER AND HIS ROLE IN HISTORY. ALL THAT IN MORE WHEN U.S FARM REPORT RETURNS.
OPENING HEADLINES:
WELCOME BACK TO U-S FARM REPORT.
THERE'S PLENTY MORE AHEAD THIS WEEKEND. ANIMAL ALLIANCE--AN ANIMAL WELFARE PROGRAM GAINS POPULARITY IN THE DAIRY INDUSTRY. A PLAN FROM PHIPPS--A ROADMAP TO 2016 THE AMERICAN COUNTRYSIDE--A MISSOURI MAN AND HIS VIEW OF HISTORY ON THE HARDWOODS. AND MASSEY MADE--A CLASSIC TRIPLE 5 SERIES RUMBLES THROUGH TRACTOR TALES

DOW-DUPONT MERGER TO CUT 17-HUNDRED JOBS:
NOW FOR THE HEADLINES... AS THE DOW-DUPONT MERGER MOVES FORWARD, SOME WORKERS IN DUPONT'S HOME STATE ARE GETTING "PINK SLIPS". DUPONT SAYS IT WILL CUT 17-HUNDRED JOBS IN DELAWARE AND THOUSANDS MORE GLOBALLY AS IT PREPARES FOR ITS MERGER WITH DOW CHEMICAL.
THE COMPANIES ANNOUNCED EARLIER THIS MONTH THEY ARE JOINING FORCES. THEIR PLAN IS TO EVENTUALLY SPLIT THE PROPERTIES INTO THREE INDEPENDENT COMPANIES.
CHEMCHINA UPS OFFER FOR SYNGENTA:
MEANWHILE, BLOOMBERG NEWS IS REPORTING THAT THE CHINESE-BASED CHEMICAL COMPANY CHEMCHINA IS UPPING ITS OFFER FOR SYNGENTA. SYNGENTA REJECTED AN OFFER MADE EARLIER THIS FALL FROM THE CHINESE FIRM. BLOOMBERG SAYS CHEM-CHINA IS NOW OFFERING FOUR-HUNDRED-72-DOLLARS A SHARE. THAT'S 20 DOLLARS MORE PER SHARE THAN THE PREVIOUS OFFER.
THIS CURRENT BID WOULD BE TO PURCHASE 70-PERCENT OF SYNGENTA WITH AN OPTION TO BUY THE REMAINDER AT A LATER DATE.
AVIAN FLU STILL ON THE RADAR:
THE POULTRY INDUSTRY IS KEEPING A SHARP EYE OUT FOR HIGH PATH AVIAN FLU SYMPTOMS THIS WINTER. WHILE JUST THIS MONTH, THE IOWA DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE SAYS IT IS LIFTING A ORDER THAN BANNED LIVE BIRD EXHIBITIONS, AT PLACES LIKE COUNTY FAIRS. THAT BAN WAS IMPLEMENTED IN IOWA -AND MANY OTHER MIDWEST STATES. THERE HAS NOT BEEN A NEW CASE OF HIGH PATH AVIAN FLU IN IOWA SINCE JUNE.
ALSO, THE LAST IOWA FARM WAS LIFTED FROM ITS QUARANTINE IN DECEMBER. SO THE STATE NOW CLAIMS TO BE FREE OF HIGH PATH A-EYE. 31 MILLION BIRDS FROM 77 POULTRY OPERATIONS IN IOWA ALONE WERE EUTHANIZED DURING THE OUTBREAK IN 2015. AVIAN FLU A MAJOR DRIVER IN USDA'S LATEST FOOD PRICE OUTLOOK. USDA SAYS THE AVERAGE NATIONAL EGG PRICE IS 17-PERCENT HIGHER THIS YEAR COMPARED TO 2014.
PROTEIN AND BEEF PRICES:
LOOKING AT OTHER PROTEIN -BEEF PRICES ARE UP NEARLY EIGHT PERCENT FROM LAST YEAR. PORK, HOWEVER, SAW A THREE-AND A HALF PERCENT DROP IN PRICE FROM 2014.
NON-OPERATING LANDLORDS OWN 31 PERCENT OF FARM LAND:
NEW FROM USDA --NON-OPERATING LANDLORDS NOW OWN A THIRD OF U.S. FARMLAND. ACCORDING TO THE DEPARTMENT'S 2014 LAND SURVEY OF THE 911 MILLION ACRES OF LAND IN FARMS--61 PERCENT IS OPERATED BY THE LAND OWNER. 31 PERCENT IS RENTED FROM NON-OPERATING LANDLORDS.

PLANTS HAVE ADAPTED TO ABSORB MORE CARBON FROM GLOBAL WARMING:
RESEARCHERS AT A SWEDISH UNIVERSITY SAY INCREASING LEVELS OF CARBON DIOXIDE IN THE ATMOSPHERE HAVE CHANGED PLANTS METABOLISM.
IN MOST PLANTS, THE UPTAKE OF CO2 THROUGH PHOTO-SYNTHESIS IS REDUCED BY A SIDE REACTION CALLED PHOTO-RESPIRATION. THE RESEARCH GROUP FOUND THAT THE CO2 INCREASE IN THE ATMOSPHERE OVER THE 20TH CENTURY SHIFTED THE BALANCE BETWEEN PHOTOSYNTHESIS AND PHOTORESPIRATION ---TOWARD PHOTOSYNTHESIS. THAT MEANS, ACCORDING TO RESEARCHERS--GLOBAL VEGETATION IS HELPING TO ABSORB A THIRD OF HUMAN-CAUSED CO2 EMISSIONS.
THE CHANGE WAS NOTED IN BOTH WILD PLANTS AND CROPS.
NATIONAL WEATHER:
THAT'S IT FOR NEWS...METEOROLOGIST CINDI CLAWSON JOINING U-S AGAIN WITH A LONGER LOOK AT WEATHER. IS EL NINO STILL IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT? YOU BET, CLINTON. EL NINO IS STILL HOLDING ON STRONG. IT WILL FOR PROBABLY THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS. THIS IS RIVALING AGAIN. IT'S THAT BIG EL NINO WE HAD BACK IN 1997. NOW IN A TYPICAL STRONGER EL NINO LIKE THIS.
THE AG INDUSTRY LOOKS AHEAD TO A NEW YEAR:
WITH 2015 NOW IN THE TAILLIGHTS, THE AG INDUSTRY IS LOOKING FORWARD TO A NEW YEAR. AND WHILE UNCERTAINTY IS CERTAIN, MANY OF THE SAME CHALLENGES WILL CARRY ON. FOR LIVESTOCK OWNERS ONE OF THOSE ISSUES IS KEEPING UP WITH OUTSIDE DEMAND FOR ANIMAL WELFARE AND HUSBANDRY PRACTICES. THAT'S ONE REASON THE DAIRY INDUSTRY IS WORKING TO BE PROACTIVE RATHER THAN REACTIVE.
TEASE:
 WHEN WE COME BACK...JOHN PHIPPS.
PREVIEWS OF COMING ATTRACTIONS STAY IN YOUR SEAT
CUSTOMER SUPPORT:
WHILE ALL OF YOU ARE MAKING PLANS FOR THE NEW YEAR...SO IS JOHN PHIPPS.
HERE'S A PREVIEW IN TODAY'S CUSTOMER SUPPORT.
THIS WEEK, INSTEAD OF READING FEEDBACK FROM A VIEWER, I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE USEFUL TO USE THIS FIRST CUSTOMER SUPPORT OF THE YEAR TO GET YOU ALL REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THE UPCOMING TOPICS I'LL BE TACKLING WITH AGSPLAINERS. AFTER ALL IT WORKED GREAT FOR STAR WARS.
WE'VE COVERED A LOT OF GROUND THIS YEAR, BUT I'M ITCHING TO DAZZLE VIEWERS WITH ELECTRIFYING EXPLANATIONS OF THE EXCITING ADVENTURES FACING US IN 2016. LIKE…
GEOGRAPHY! I KNOW YOU HAVE ASKED YOURSELF ALMOST EVERY WEEK, "IF ONLY PHIPPS WOULD TALK MORE ABOUT LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE AND STATE CAPITALS!" WELL, WE'LL BE LEARNING WHY AFRICA IS PROVING MORE CHALLENGING TO FARM, WHY CHINA WILL SOON HAVE 200 CITIES OVER A MILLION, AND WHY NOBODY IN THE U-S RECOGNIZES THE FLAG OF THE SECOND MOST  POPULOUS COUNTRY.
TEASE:
THANK JOHN. ALRIGHT, WHEN WE COME SOME ROUNDBALL MEMORIES WITH ANDREW MCRAE-AN
INSPIRING STORY OF COURAGE AND REFLECTION.
MISS ANY OF TODAY'S SHOW? HEAD TO USFARMREPORT.COM TO WATCH THE PROGRAM ONLINE. U.S. FARM REPORT, THE SPIRIT OF COUNTRYSIDE.
ANDREW MCCREA:
AS FOOTBALL SEASON STARTS TO FADE, KIDS ARE HITTING THE HARDWOODS-SHOOTING
HOOPS IN BASKETBALL GYMS ACROSS AMERICA. TODAY AMERICAN COUNTRYSIDE'S ANDREW MCCREA TAKES US BACK IN TIME -TO WHEN COLLEGE COURTS WEREN'T INTEGRATED--TO MEET A MAN WHO HELPED CHANGE THE RULES OF THE GAME.
"IT WAS A TEAM THAT WOULD BECAME FAMOUS THROUGH THE MOVIE "GLORY ROAD."
"JERRY ARMSTRONG EAGLEVILLE MISSOURI ALL STATE 19 BOARDS A GAME STARTING FORWARD."
IT WAS THE EARLY 1960S AND RACE WAS AN ISSUE FOR SOME COACHES WHEN IT CAME TO RECRUITING.
HASKINS WAS DIFFERENT THAN MANY COACHES THOUGH. PERHAPS IT WAS BECAUSE DURING HIS OWN PLAYING DAYS AT OKLAHOMA A&M HE WAS TOLD HIS FRIEND AND EXCELLENT BASKETBALL PLAYER HERMAN KARR, WHO WAS BLACK, WOULD NOT BE RECRUITED BY COACH HENRY IBA.
YOU SEE I KNOW...FOR I WAS ONE OF COACH ARMSTRONG'S STUDENTS AT KING CITY MISSOURI AND THE LESSONS HE TAUGHT ME STILL IMPACT MY LIFE TODAY.
TRAVELING THE COUNTRYSIDE IN MANSFIELD MISSOURI I'M ANDREW MCCRAE.
TEASE:
AMAZING HOW THOSE LIFE LESSONS STICK WITH YOU...INSPIRING. THANKS
ANDREW. WHEN WE COME BACK, TRACTOR TALES AND OUR COUNTRY CHURCH
SALUTE...PLEASE STAY WITH US.

TRACTOR TALES:
WELCOME BACK TO U.S. FARM REPORT. TRACTOR TALES THIS WEEK TAKES US TO THE KANSAS PLAINS FOR A CLASSIC IRON THAT'S ALL RED. LLOYD ROBBINS, OR "BUB" AS HIS FRIENDS LIKE TO CALL HIM, SHOWS OFF A MASSEY TRIPLE 5 SERIES DIESEL.
HE KNOWS IT WAS BUILT FOR HARD WORK, BUT THIS ONE IS FIT FOR JUST SHOWING OFF.
AS YOU CAN SEE IT STARTS REAL GOOD AND IT JUST DRIVES LIKE A NEW ONE. NOTHING ELSE CAN BE DONE WITH IT. THE TRIPLE SERIES WAS THE LAST TRACTOR THAT MASSEY HARRIS MADE. AND ACTUALLY THE MERGER WITH FERGUSON WAS GOING ON. THE TIME THEY WERE BUILT KIND OF A LOW PRODUCTION NUMBER.
CHURCH SALUTE:
AND CONGRATULATIONS TO THE FREINDSHIP BAPTIST CHURCH OF MOUNTAIN GROVE, MISSOURI. FOUNDED IN 1865, THE CONGREGATION CELEBRATED ITS 150TH ANNIVERSARY LAST JUNE. MANY OF THE CHURCH RECORDS WERE LOST IN A FIRE IN 1943---BUT THE CONGREGATION THINKS ITS ONE OF THE OLDEST BAPTIST CHURCHES IN THE AREA. OUR THANKS TO, WILDA TODD, FOR SHARING YOUR CHURCH WITH US.
AS ALWAYS WE WANT TO LEARN ABOUT YOUR HOME CHURCH AS WELL... SALUTES CAN BE SENT BY EMAIL TO MAILBAG AT U-S FARM REPORT DOT COM OR POSTED ON OUR FACEBOOK OR TWITTER PAGES.

AS ALWAYS THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR SHARING AND YOU CAN DO THE SAME.
JUST EMAIL A PHOTO AND SHORT DESCRIPTIONS TO MAILBAG AND US FARM REPORT DOT COM OR POST IT OUR FACEBOOK PAGE OR TWITTER ACCOUNT ONLINE.
