THE BEARS ARE OUT IN FULL FORCE. OUR ROUNDTABLES TELL US IF NOW CROP  PRICES HAVE  MAYBE GONE TOO LOW.   WEATHER HAS BEEN A WET BLANKET ON THE MARKET, SO WHAT'S IN STORE OVER THE NEXT WEEK?

THE 6 TO 10 DAY FORECAST THIS WEEK SHOWED WARM TEMPERATURES, BUT MUCH OF THE CORN BELT RECEIVING RAIN, ALSO PUTTING A DAMPER ON PRICES. IN RESPONSE, COMMODITY PRICES TAKING A HARD FALL.   IT'S NOT ROSEY EVERYWHERE WHEN IT COMES TO RAIN.

SOYBEAN CONDITIONS STARTING TO WORSEN, WITH A TWO POINT DROP THIS WEEK.    70-PERCENT OF THE CROP IS STILL IN  GOOD TO EXCELLENT SHAPE.  
SAFHRINA CROP UPDATE:
DOWN IN BRAZIL, PROSPECTS ON THE SAFHRINA CROP AREN'T LOOKING SO GOOD THANKS TO DROUGHT. THE COUNTRY'S NATIONAL CROP SUPPLY AGENCY  SLASHING THEIR FORECAST BY NEARLY 7 MILLION TONNES THIS WEEK. CONAB NOW PEGS THE SECOND CROP CORN  PRODUCTION AT JUST OVER 43 MILLION TONNES. ETHANOL EXPORTS FALLING TO A NINE MONTH LOW IN MAY.  MEAT EXPORTS:
MEAT EXPORTS TOOK THE OPPOSITE PATH IN MAY,  WITH DOUBLE DIGIT GAINS FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR.

 THOSE ARE THE HEADLINES...METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN JOINS US NOW WITH WEATHER. MIKE, I KNOW  LAST WEEK YOU SAID YOU DIDN'T EXPECT WIDESPREAD DROUGHT, BUT SOME PLACES JUST KEEP GETTING DRIER.  WELL THAT'S RIGHT I KNOW IS NO WIDESPREAD AREA DROP DEVELOPING  BUT THERE ARE POCKETS IN THESE AREAS THAT HAVE JUST BEEN MISSED BY THE AREAS OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS AND COMPLEXS IS THAT WE'VE SEEN NOW THERE IS STILL AT AREA OVER THE SOUTHEAST IS CENTERED AROUND ATLANTA THAT'S BEEN GETTING WORSE AND WORSE AND THAT'S AN AREA THAT WE DO HAVE TO WATCH MAYBE EXPANDING BEJING SEE OTHERWISEIT'S SO SOME SPOTS IN MICHIGAN AND PARTS OF THE NORTHEAST IOWA  MISSOURI BORDER FEW SPOTS AROUND SOUTH DAKOTA AND A SPOT IN CENTRAL PORTIONS OF ALL OKLAHOMA SEEING MODERATE DROUGHT

JOHN’S WORLD:
IT'S TIME NOW TO HEAD TO JOHN'S FARM FOR THIS  WEEK'S JOHN'S WORLD. FROM BANKS TO BREXIT, HE'S COVERING IT ALL.   JOHN.   AS MORE OF US IN RURAL AMERICA ARE DISCOVERING,  SMALL BANKS ARE BEING ABSORBED INTO LARGER,  EVEN HUGE BANKS. ONE COMMON REASON CITED IS THE COST OF INCREASED REGULATION, ESPECIALLY THE DODD-FRANK REGULATIONS PUT IN PLACE AFTER THE FINANCIAL MELTDOWN OF THE RECESSION.  TEASE:
STILL TO COME, A BATTLE FOR NEW YORK DAIRIES TO UNIONIZE IS PUTTING THE INDUSTRY AT ODDS WITH ITS  GOVERNOR. WE'LL BREAK DOWN THE FIGHT AND WHY  FARMERS SAY IT JUST DOESN'T PENCIL OUT. THAT'S AFTER THE BREAK. 


SECOND HALF OPENING HEADLINES:
FROM THE STUDIOS OF FARM JOURNAL BROADCAST,  THIS IS U.S. FARM REPORT. WELCOME BACK TO U-S FARM REPORT. WE HAVE MUCH MORE AHEAD OVER THE NEXT HALF HOUR. IT'S A DAIRY DIVIDE IN NEW YORK. OUR FARM JOURNAL REPORT SHOWS YOU WHY THE INDUSTRY IS AT ODDS OVER LABOR.  IN CUSTOMER SUPPORT, WITH SO MUCH TENSION  AFTER JOHN'S CUSTOMER SUPPORT LATELY, HE THINKS IT'S TIME TO REMIND US OF THE GROUND RULES.  AND IN BAXTER BLACK, A DEBATE BETWEEN A FATHER AND SON ABOUT THAT ONE COW YOU JUST CAN'T LET GO.   LATEST AG ECONOMY BAROMETER SHOWS RISE:
NOW FOR THE HEADLINES, DESPITE THE TUMBLE IN COMMODITY PRICES THIS WEEK, THE RALLY THIS   SPRING LIFTED PRODUCERS' OPTIMISM.  THE LATEST AG ECONOMY BAROMETER FROM PURDUE  AND CME, SHOWS THE INDEX RISING TO 104 IN JUNE, A 7 POINT JUMP.  THE STUDY NOTES THE KEY REASON FOR THAT IN JUNE  WAS CORN AND SOYBEAN PRICES TRADING IN RANGES NOT SEEN IN NEARLY A YEAR. BUT EVEN DESPITE BRIGHTER OUTLOOKS, PRODUCERS WERE MORE CONSERVATIVE ON THE OUTLOOK FOR THEIR INDIVIDUAL OPERATION.
FARMERS KEEP AN EYE TO THE WEATHER:
ANOTHER INTERESTING FINDING IS MORE FARMERS  ANTICIPATE EXTREME WEATHER IMPACTING THEIR   CROP YIELDS THIS YEAR THAN LAST. AND NEARLY 30 PERCENT SURVEYED SAID THEY REVISED THEIR MARKETIN GPLAN TO DUE WORRIES ABOUT WEATHER.  A NATIONAL LABELING STANDARD THAT WOULD VOID VERMONT'S STATE LAW IS NOW IN ITS FINAL STEPS OF APPROVAL.  GMO LABELING BILL PASSES, FINALLY—NOW TO THE HOUSE:
TEH SENATE PASSING THE GMO LABELING BILL 63 TO 30 ON THURSDAY.  UNDER THE BILL, MEAT AND DAIRY PRODUCTS FROM  ANIMALS FED FEED CONTAINING GMO INGREDIETNS WILL BE EXEPT FROM THE RULE. NOW IT'S ON TO THE HOUSE FOR A VOTE, BEFORE HEADING TO THE PRESIDENT'S DESK.  IT WON'T BE AN EASY RIDE-- ANY CHANGES TO THE BILL IN THE HOUSE WILL NEED TO BE SENT BACK TO THE SENATE FOR APPROVAL. 
STUDY FINDS SUBSIDIZED FOOD INTAKE MAY LEAD TO HEALTH PROBLEMS:
A NEW STUDY FROM RESEARCHERS AT THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION FOUND CONSUMERS WHOSE CALORIE INTAKE IS MAINLY FROM  SUBSIDIZED FOOD, HAVE A HIGHER CHANCE OF DEVELOPING HEALTH PROBLEMS. THE RESERCHERS FOUND FOOD ITEMS LIKE CORN,  SOY, WHEAT, DAIRY AND MEATS ARE MORE LIKELY TO HAVE HIGHER CHOLESTEROL OR BE OVERWEIGHT.  THIS COULD INCLUENCE FUTURE POLITCAL DEBATES, AS RESERACHERS SUGGEST FEDERAL AGRIUCLTURAL POLICY SHOULD BE MORE ALIGNED WITH NUTRITION POLICY. 
EPA ATRAZINE DEBATE:
THERE'S MORE TIME TO GIVE YOUR INPUT ON ATRAZINE.  EPA IS EXTNEDING THE COMMENT PERIOD DEADLINE FROM AUGUST 5 TO OCTOBER 4. THE EXTENSION IS AFTER STAKEHOLDERS SAID IT'S DIFFICULT TO COMMENT DURING THE GROWING SEASON.   PEOPLE ARE ASKED TO WEIGH IN ON EP'S DRAFT ECOLOGICAL RISK ASSESSMENT CLAIMING ATRAZINE DOES HARM THE ENVIRONMENT.  
FLORIDA ALGAE BLOOM SHUTS DOWN BEACHES, AGRICULTURE THOUGHT TO BE CAUSE:
THE MASSIVE ALGAE BLOOM OUTBREAK SHUTTING DOWN FLORIDA BEACHES AND FORCING A STATE OF EMERGENCY, IS NOW BEING CONNECTED  TO AGRICULTURE.  U-S ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS OFFICIALS BELIEVE THE ALGAE BLOOMS CAN BE TRACED TO LAKE  OKEECHOBEE, WHICH IS THE LARGEST LAKE IN  FLORIDA. OFFICIALS SAY THE LAKE HAS BEEN OVERLOADED WITH EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF FERTILZIER RUNOFF FROM FARMS AND URBANIZATION. WHILE THEY HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO CONFIRM THE  THEORY, OFFICIAL S SAY A RECENT SAMPLE OF WATER FROM THE BEACH MATCHES A SAMPLE FROM THE LAKE.   EGG PRODUCTION COMPANY STILL TAKING HEAT FOR SALMONELLA OUTBREAK:
N IOWA BASED EGG PRODUCTION COMPANY THAT'S  BLAMED FOR A MASSIVE SALMONELLA OUTBREAK 6 YEARS AGO IS STILL COMING UNDER FIRE. AND NOW THE TWO OWNERS COULD FACE JAIL TIME. IN A 2 TO 1 DECISION, A CICRUIT COURTH IN IOWA, BACKED A PREVIOUS RULING THAT SAYS JACK DECOSTER AND HIS SON PETER SHOULD SERVE A PRISON SENTENSE FOR MISDEMEANOR FOOD SAFETY VIOLATIONS. THE CASE CLAIMS THE DECOSTERS WERE AWARE OF UNSANITARY CONDITIONS AT THEIR IOWA FARMS, WHICH SICKENED UP TO 56 THOUSAND PEOPLE.  THE JUDGE SAYS THE DECOSTERS DISREGARDED BASIC FOOD SAFETY STANDARDS FOR YEARS AND DESERVED JAIL TIME.  
PORK PROCESSING PLANT FINDS HOME IN IOWA AT AT LAST:
THE PRESTAGE FARM PORK PROCESSING PLANT THAT  WAS TURNED DOWN BY MASON CITY, IOWA OFFICIALS HAS FOUND A HOME. PRESTAGE FARMS IS BUILDING A 240 MILLION DOLLAR  PLANT IN WRIGHT COUNTY, IOWA. IT'S EXPECTED TO BRING IN ROUGHLY 900 NEW JOBS. THIS COMES AFTER MASON CITY, IOWA TURNED DOWN THE OFFER. PRESTAGE TOLD US AT WORLD PORK EXPO  HE'S WAS   CONTACTED BY 19 COMMUNITIES IN THE STATE OF IOWA  AS WELL AS HALF A DOZEN LOCATIONS IN OTHER  STATES FOR THE PLANT.   NATIONAL WEATHER:
 THAT'S IT FOR NEWS...METEOROLOGIST MIKE  HOFFMAN JOINS US NOW WITH A LONGER-TERM LOOK   AT WEATHER. MIKE, ARE YOU STILL THINKING WARM  TEMPERATURES THROUGHOUT JULY?   ABSOLUTELY TYNE. THE VAST MAJORITY IF NOT ALL OF THE LOWER FORTY EIGHT GOING TO BE ABOVE NORMAL FOR TEMPERATURES AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE SECOND HALF OF JULY AND EVEN ON INTO THE FIRST PART OF AUGUST.  LET'S START OFF WITH JEST STREAM THAT SLOW MOVING A LITTLE KIND OF CUT OFF VERY LOW PRESSURE ACROSS SOUTHERN CANADA WILL CONTINUE TO  MOVE WITH THE JET STREAM AND THAT KIND OF FLATTENS OUT THE RED AGAIN SO YOU GET THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY.
FARM BUREAU FIGHT OVER FARMER’S RIGHT TO UNIONIZE:
THE NEW YORK STATE FARM BUREAU IS STEPPING INTO  A LEGAL FIGHT OVER WHETHER FARMWORKERS CAN BE ALLOWED TO UNIONIZE.  THE NEW YORK CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION FILED SUIT   AGAINST THE STATE AND ITS GOVERNOR EARLIER THIS YEAR OVER A LAW THAT FORBIDS COLLECTIVE   BARGAINING FOR FARM WORKERS. THE GOVERNOR SAYS HE WON'T ARGUE THE LAWSUIT, SPARKING THE NEW YORK FARM BUREAU TO ASK THE COURTS TO INTERVENE.  IN THIS FARM JOURNAL REPORT, BETSY JIBBEN TELLS US WHY THIS FIGHT IS FAR FROM OVER.  KENDRA LAMB IS A DAIRY PRODUCER IN WESTERN NEW YORK. FOR HER, IT'S MORE THAN AN OCCUPATION, BUT  A PASSION.   REPORTING IN WESTERN NEW YORK, I'M BETSY JIBBEN. )  TEASE:
NEXT UP, JOHN PHIPPS.  

CUSTOMER SUPPORT:
IT'S NO SECRET THAT JOHN'S PRESIDENTIAL  COMMENTARY STIRRED UP QUITE THE DEBATE. AND   WITH SO MUCH TENSION, JOHN IS TAKING US BACK A FEW YEARS. JOHN.   FROM TOM KALKMAN IN MONTROSE, COLORADO  REGARDING MY CANDIDATE COMMENTS:  "WAIT A MINUTE. YOU CAN'T JUST READ RESPONSES  FROM "FOX NEWS" BIASED REPUBLICANS, WITHOUT  CHECKING AND DISPUTING FACTUALLY UNSUPPORTED  STATEMENTS OR AT LEAST PRESENTING THE OPPOSING DEMOCRATIC VIEW. SEEMS LIKE A BLATANT PLOY BY  THE SHOWS PRODUCERS TO COURT RIGHT WING VIEWERS.
TEASE:
THANKS, JOHN. IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION OR COMMENT  FOR JOHN, YOU CAN EMAIL US, OR SEND US A NOTE ON  FACEBOOK OR TWITTER. UP NEXT, WE'RE HEADING OUT WEST FOR A VISIT WITH BAXTER BLACK.  

BAXTER BLACK:
THIS WEEK WE HEAD OUT WEST FOR A CUTE STORY FROM BAXTER BLACK ABOUT THAT ONE COW YOU JUST CAN'T LET GO.  
YER NOT GONNA KEEP'ER, STILL, ARE YA DAD? SHE MUST BE TWELVE YEARS OLD.  I RECKON SHE'S CLOSER TO FOURTEEN, NOW,  AND NATURALLY HALF POLLED.  YOU MEAN SHE WAS SIRED BY A HORNLESS BULL? NO. SHE'S JUST GOT ONE HORN. WHICH MAKES HER HALF POLLED OR BETTER YET IT MAKES HER HALF UNICORN.
