"Brian Reynolds launched his solo Homer 425 feet in the 9th inning as the pirates walked off the brewers 8 7 Reynolds had three hits including the long ball keeping Derek Shelton's team away from extra innings in a bullpen game Off the crack of the bat it was like we're gonna play in about 12 hours and we just we just saved a bullpen arm because we went through our entire bullpen today so that was my first thought O'Neill Cruz hit his 8th Homer of the year for the pirates Willie Adams drove in four runs for Milwaukee which leads the NL central by a game and a half Josh rowntree Pittsburgh
Yoram Hazony Explains the Problem of Idolizing Individual Liberty
"Let's talk about the unit of importance. So in sort of classical liberal tradition and in the United States in particular, the idea has been that the individual is the locus of all politics and the locus of all thoughts. So individual rights are predominant, those rights are supposed to be protected by government you delegate your powers to the government in order to protect those rights so far as the government invades those rights, then it is defeated. It's reason for being I mean, this is the sort of basic language of the Declaration of Independence, the world trained on. And so when we speak of freedom and liberty, that's what Americans tend to think of almost instinctively. You are using in that statement the nation or the state as sort of the locus or the tribe as the locus of importance. Which do you think is the level of abstraction that we should be aiming at conserving? Is it the individual? Is it the family? Is it the nation? Is it the tribe? Which level of abstraction is the most important here? Look, I think if you pick one and insist on it, then you end up being kind of like an a dollar and a dollar of the individual meaning somebody who just puts way too much emphasis on the individual or if you pick the nation, it's very easy for that to turn into something that is oppressive. I think that if you look at the American founding, there actually was a balance between jeffersonians and thinkers like Tom Payne, they basically were the left and they had this liberal view. But there was another party. The party of Washington and Hamilton, John Jay, John Adams, governor Morris who basically was the draftsman of the constitution. They were much more conservative. And they did focus on all you need to do is read the preamble to the American constitution. The first thing that they think that they're doing is a more perfect union. That's a nationalist aim. It's not an individual aim. It's an aim of we as millions of people. We have a problem that our union is insufficiently strong. And of course, of course, the blessings of liberty is there, but it's one of 7 aims. It's not the only. And I think that's fundamentally what Americans at this stage need to rediscover. They've got the individual liberty thing. It does bring blessings. But at this point, I mean, I think it's just, it's run out of control. I mean, if you're so far down the individual liberty path that you can't understand why pornography should not be should not be on the smartphone of every 12 year old kid. If you can't understand that, then you're just so deep into the individual liberty thing that you just don't think there are any other values. And that's what we're looking for is to rebalance along with those other values. That's a conservative way approaching these problems.
Andy Biggs: Glad Dem Mayors Finally See Illegal Aliens as a Problem
"Not that you're laughing, but are you looking at the mayor's nimby here and thinking, told you so? Yeah, I think well, I'm glad that there are at least finally acknowledging that illegal migrants and aliens coming across the border can potentially be a problem. So, I mean, yeah, I mean, to see mayor Bowser mayor Adams, they're just having a fraction of what happens on the border. I mean, you've got, you've got cities of 20,000 people that are seeing four or 500 people a day coming through towns just a 100,000 that a thousand a day. They're complaining about a total of 4000 busted them from Arizona and Texas. And you know, well, grow up. I mean, let's face it, let's work together now and secure the border.
DC & NYC Mayors Suddenly Unhappy About Illegal Aliens Coming In
"Muriel Bowser, who is the big time left wing mayor of Washington D.C. and a big proponent of sanctuary cities, along with Eric Adams, the left wing mayor of New York, who's also a big proponent of sanctuary cities. They're not thrilled these days because Texas governor Greg Abbott said, okay, you love the idea of illegal aliens coming into the United States? We've got a lot of them here in Texas. They're flowing across the border every single solitary day. They are simply doing terrible, terrible things to our infrastructure. I mean, I don't mean they're out there pulling up roads or such, but there's not enough infrastructure. There's not enough school teachers, not enough school buildings. I love healthcare. The rest of it. So Greg Abbott said, well, here's what we're going to do. We're going to send some of these folks your way. And so Texas governor Greg Abbott has been sending buses filled with illegal aliens to Washington, D.C., and to New York, and all of a sudden, all of a sudden these major proponents of sanctuary cities, these folks who are just thrilled with every goofy left wing policy there is, now they're saying, well, this is problematic. It's a real drain on our infrastructure. You don't say. Because I could have sworn governor Abbott said that. I could have sworn that there were mayors on the border who said that. But now it's happening in Washington D.C.. Now it's a crisis. But what does mural Bowser wants? Mural Bowser isn't saying, oh yeah, we ought to secure that border. Absolutely. I've reevaluated. No, no, no. She says, well, we just need more help from the federal government.
The First Real U.S. Election in 1800
"And so what is this challenging elections Electors and The first real election in this country was 1800 That was really the first real election And as Smithsonian magazine put it so long ago but made it such a protracted affair was that state legislatures were elected throughout the year As these assemblies more often than not chose presidential electors you see what I'm saying The assemblies chose presidential electors The state contest to determine them became part of the national campaign In 1800 the greatest surprise among these contests occurred in New York A large crucial state that had given all 12 of its electoral votes to Adams in 1796 Allowing him to eke out a three vote victory over Jefferson The battle for supremacy in the New York legislature to hinged on the outcome in New York City Thanks largely to lopsided winds and working class wards where many voters own no property the Republicans secured all 24 of New York's electoral votes for Jefferson and Aaron Burr For Abigail Adams John's wife that was enough to seal Adam's fate John Dawson a Republican congressman from Virginia declared the republic is safe the Federalist Party are enraged and despair But Adams himself refused to give up hope

AJ Looks at the Cluster of Presidential Deaths on July 4th
"The close cluster of July 4th, as really weird. Especially given the prehistoric prehistoric, the historic importance of that day. The first adult Thomas Jefferson was 83 years old at the time. And he was bedridden for a month with a bunch of different physical bullshit ailments. He called a fever on July 3rd, died the next day. At his home in Monticello, Virginia. Meanwhile, since hundred miles away and Quincy Massachusetts, 90 year old John Adams was also on his deathbed. And he died soon after that. Entirely unaware of Jefferson's passing. Adams oblivious last words were reportedly, Thomas Jefferson still survives, and it was the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. That's some crazy stuff. It really is. And president John Quincy Adams stuck struck by his father and Thomas Jefferson dying, not just on the same day, but on such an historic occasion, he called the timing visible and palpable remarks of divine favor. Those are such wonderful words put in a row. Visible and palpable remarks of divine favor. I'm not even sure how he came up with that. That's beautiful. There was a Saturday back then, Daniel Webster, and he agreed. He agreed remarking in a eulogy a month after Adams and Jefferson's death, he said they were proof that our country and its benefactors are objects of God's care. And then I know this is like a history lesson, but it's really important. It's July. It's July 4th, these deaths are saying. 5 years after Jefferson and Adams passed away, James Monroe dies of tuberculosis at 73 years old. At his daughter's house in New York

This is a produced by the american radio network. Here's your host mike adams. Good morning folks. Welcome to ao. On this friday. I'm mike pearson filling in for mike adams. He'll be back though on monday while we take a look at everything that is happening in the agriculture industry to round down our week. One of the things. I think everybody in farm country has noticed over the past. Several months is the rise in land sales and of course the rise in value of those sales. We've seen that take place in land. It's also happening in the used equipment marketplace and. I wanted to get some more details to do that. Our first guest today is an whitaker from whitaker marketing group in central iowa. And thanks so much for taking the time to talk to us today. Hey mike thanks for having me. You bet let's talk a little bit and we've seen big changes in the auction markets from twenty twenty two twenty twenty one. Can you give us an update. What have you seen happen on the ground for. Let's start with equipment auctions. Okay yeah with a well. as everything. Covert push the our markets more online Training the buyers to bid on line so that was a huge thing for us. You know we were skeptical that the markets would fall And actually we have seen him. Stay the same or just a little stronger for most of those pieces An interesting fact is that the prices haven't moved as much as the increase in the hours of the equipment that's being sold We'd see farmers are paying the same or more for equipment with higher number of hours on those machines. So that's interesting fact there You know with equipment auction people still like to come and kick the tires and pull the dipstick but with utilizing the online bidding platforms During the livestream silence simulcasts event. You you get to see higher dollars for those sellers For the single pieces of equipment we still do online away But it's a retirement. Sailor and a state sale on equipment returned to be those simulcast event. And when you're doing simulcasts event where you have the live bidding and also the online bidding. Does that results in pieces. Moving farther away dc bidders tuning in from california or canada or to most folks still look local when they're buying equipment absolutely at Brought in the market for sure so now. We send tractors to tax this. You know all the way the east coast. We had an older model tractor One of those old atoms. He's still only see him. Go for a thousand bucks or whatever but Sometimes was ridiculous and it went to pennsylvania of all places so yeah we definitely have hit a larger market when we put those online. Yeah no. I've been hearing from a lot of growers that sometimes parts are a challenge to get a new equipment can be tough to secure now. Given all the covert supply chain issues. Has that resulted in additional interest. Coming in to To auction business or folks look into replace equipment. Maybe going used for now until they can get the new stuff. Yeah absolutely that With the inventory being lower and stuff With the manufacturers and everything the Demand has gone up for those pieces for sure. Especially and i know especially now bill your minds and combines in one hundred horse tractors The demand is strong. Gotcha now heading into harvest. Season usually a bit of a low point for auctions of course as growers out in the field. How how does your schedule look as you get through the fall in winter you're seeing some interest in folks consigning or perhaps retiring. Yeah like you said it's always a hurry up and wait game for us. You know whoever Wanna get those pieces so you know prior to harvest Especially the combines the wagons that kind of stuff that is used in the harvest then And then it's and it's on hold for us until winter You know we still have those one or two off pieces that Come in occasionally and stuff throughout the time but Yeah usually it's the hurry up and wait game so all right well. one thing. that doesn't wait. Of course our land sales folks when they get those listed there. They're selling pretty hot. And what have you seen. I know you and david your husband work closely in the iowa region but you work with auctioneers from around the world around the country at least what have you been seeing in the corn belt house. Land salesman going. It's crazy right now. You know Last month in iowa just over fifteen thousand acres were sold versus last year in august. There was only thirty six hundred acres sold so that is just astronomical historically more acres sell in november's so it'll be an exciting season coming up busy season I'm excited to see what markets continue to do. It will certainly be something to watch and one of the things we do see. Is that growers. I guess. I should ask at the auctions that have been happening. Who has been the buyers. Have they been farmers or our investors coming in to take a look at farm ground. Actually both A few years ago. You know. I'd say it's mostly farmers buying the land Now with current markets. It's both we seeing more people. Even that live in town that are wanting to invest in smaller parcels of farmland or recreational property for a place to get away The ten thirty one buyers that are out there or huge right now in the market People moving their money from the stock market's to buying farm ground For stability and girls so Yeah it's it's both now. Investors certainly like that diversification. That can come. If they're an in town person with a retirement plan they can put a little money into something farm ground. See the returns. And i wanted to ask you. We have a record setting. Lindy count iowa. Here are a few weeks ago. And i had a win to try on it. Are you seeing added interest for parcels. That have either wind turbines or solar panel systems which are becoming more popular.

Through friday for the latest farm and agriculture news from around the world information america's farmers and ranchers needs to know on a now back to mike adams and welcome back as we talk it over with purdue aggie economists michael lang meyer with the latest numbers from the purdue. Cme group aggie economy-barometer. Michael thank you for joining us and been a while since we've been able to say this but we actually saw. The numbers improved slightly this month. Increase from from the previous month but it the index has been relatively flat on the last three months. And so we were at one hundred. Thirty eight in august That that compares to one hundred thirty four in july and a hundred and thirty seven june so relatively flat when you look at the two sub-indices however there was a there was some improvement in the in the index of current conditions. And and i. And i think that's can be explained and a couple of different ways first of all You know crop prices at held fairly steady in terms of the prospects for this this fall but as we get closer to harvest. If if it's look at it's look it looks like there's going to be fairly good harvest People get a little bit more optimistic and so we may see some in depending on on on yield projections. We may see some improvement as we move into the fall Based based on a potential crop yields so up just slightly from a month ago. How do the august numbers this year compared to the august numbers last year. Well the this year are are better quite a bit better What they were last year particularly the index our current conditions and But also the index of future expectations. is is is down is it's actually down slightly and so and so it's kind of a mixed bag. The current conditions index is rather substantially. But that's not surprising. Price started climbing Last fall Last fall and they've really stayed relatively high compared to what they were last august The terms index future expectations are higher than we were last We we are a little bit lower the mobile where last summer. and that's a little bit Little bit confusing. But i think what's happening. There is when you look at the index and future expectations for the current month They're seeing the prices are going to be a little bit lower than what they were in in fall. Twenty twenty one. And i think that's keeping that index of teacher expectations a little bit lower than what it has been Has been earlier this year and also.

Craig mackie in k. Abroad imas matt Again we talked about the weather and the winds blew through here last night and a little bit of rain In the old days that could cause some setup problems but no problems here this year. Yeah the you know. That's one of the beauties of of the of the permanent sites back in the good old days. When we built this in a cornfield we would be in the process right now of destroying the show site seven tenths of an inch rain would would just torn the streets all the pieces. We be dragging semis in and out in and it would have made a mess of the twenty twenty one show before the gates ever opened. So fortunately don't have that problem. Everything looks good. And i can't get over. How much has gone up in the exhibit field. I mean there's been a lot done in the last few days. Yeah we're we were talking off air. The you kind of david mentioned that you kinda measure it by how much you can see through it over over the course of as you kinda step out of the office and you no longer see through the show site. There's tents and buildings and the the loading dock has gotten very busy in the last couple of days and and a lot of a lot of the field. Demo equipment is here and ready to tuna and the you can start to see the exhibits taking shape. It's it's getting to that. That kind of exciting point where where. It's it changes every hour now. So take sue these final days. Now you're less than a week away out. How does the final days go as far as getting ready so You know we as things ramp up we bring in more and more people with the office is turning into a busy place with more and more of our staff coming in You know we're we're getting to that transition point where it's not just ten companies and landscapers electricians that are here now you're starting to see company people coming in the league came in this morning you know the the gal that sits up cases here john deere's offsite setting up right now and and we just kind of start to work more and more with those folks and at the same time on show operations there signing going up. I've got. I'm just as an example. I'm training the folks that are going to work in the info boost. I'm training them tonight. So you're starting to train the volunteers. There's sunday and monday or full of parking staff meetings and admission folk meetings and the field demo crew meetings and and just just getting getting everything ramped up And and the good news is you know. We've we've done this. I think this is a ninth time through decatur. So you know kathy with the info boost. She knows what she's doing. And the crew holding the rope. They know what they're doing and the crew. That does the parking in the horses. The park they know where they gotta go park and do their thing so that it. We're fortunate that we've got so many great people that are willing to come back and you're gonna talk to scott gregor here in a little bit. You've got great host. Farmers like david that they just know what to do and it gets it just gets done and a lot can change. Obviously in the next week but right now. The forecast looks good for next week little cooler. Yeah i generally think forecasts are worth the paper. They're written on tonight. But for some reason i still check them every day. I know i sit and watch radar screens and forecasts and things. But you know we'll take some heat this week. We've had our test with what kind of wins. The place contain already And it looks like you. Know i rarely. Is it gonna go from being this hot to being nice and cool during the show without some kind of a thunderstorm coming through and bumping us around a little bit in between. That looks like it's going to be sunday or maybe monday morning. But if that i'll buy that forecast if we can have it i'll i'll take it because it looks like a beautiful three days for the show. Unfortunately the corona virus is still in the news and we've seen the latest surge in in in cases. Has that changed any of your plans for the show. It has not The cdc's guidance hasn't changed for several weeks now and we're still going with that guidance. Which is that in any. Enclosed areas masks are recommended but not required and with the outdoor nature of the show You know we've all probably been to a fair here. And there. I was at the illinois state fair and got reports now state fair that you know when you're out about you. Just don't see that many masks when you go into places where maybe they ought to be worn. You do see a few of them here and there And we're kind of get to that point where it's it's a little hard to derail it now. The shows kind of picking up. Its own momentum. And she's just gonna kinda happen here. Tuesday wednesday thursday so i'd invite everybody to common. You will see some exhibitors with some different rules here and there they may ask you to wear mask but For the most part. I think it's going to be. It's going to be what you've seen at other events here in the midwest gates open. What time tuesday. Eight o'clock every day. Open till five tuesday wednesday open till four on thursday. Right.

And you know you you. You can't have a rain like that without having damage right the way it's going now we're heading into august. What do you think about when you build a when you would start on harvest but maybe a little sooner this year. I don't think so. I think that the corn was was pushed back a little bit with that dry weather and heat. We had early there In june and i think we're going to be you know labor day or later so mid-september probably is going to be the the big start and i know you talked with a lot of friends in different parts of the country and You're hearing from them. This these extremes that are out there. Right i mean Areas like yours are looking really good in the areas. That are just hard to grow anything this year. It's it's extreme all over. I mean you go west to central kansas. And they're just as dries they've ever been and and you go north. Then you know. South dakota north dakota. It's it's really extreme. But you know we've seen these things before and it's just happened that that we're catching the rain this time but one rain really makes a difference when when you need it bad and i'm not sure you know you see a lot of minnesota is in bad shape and You really feel for them. Because they're they're used to nice weather most of the time so It's it's really tough to see guys who just play miss the whole year because it's it's a pretty rapid a lot of places it really is but you're looking at it. Would you think is going to be a very good corn crop. And you're looking at these prices. You don't usually get those two matched up. Do you know you don't like and it's really good feeling to to have that Figure these numbers up and and they're really really make it for goodyear. Really feel good for anybody. That's having a good crop and a good price at the same time. His you're right. You don't get that very often. And i've had it a couple of times in my fifty years of farming but Not very i'll. I know you watch closely. Still the ethanol industry and the challenges faced there You've seen the ups and downs of this industry over the years. How do you feel about where it's at right now. What's really hard to figure out it. Is you know that's an all businesses is moving along making some money. You look down the road and you know why in the world would would liden campaign against the oil industry and then try to beat up on the renewable ethanol sector. I just don't understand that. Hopefully this this is just gonna keep you know working itself out and you know. I'm i'm thinking that it will back. I just can't see the the environmental things in climate things that all the administration's talking about here and then beat up on a good product that helping the climate thing by not not fully supporting so. Yeah that's where. I'm painting my hopes You know there's a. There's a lot of things going against it's right. Now that makes things really uncertain short craft help. I get that there are big deal all right ken. Good to talk with you.

Let's talk it over with todd. Holtman lead analysts ford. Dt in todd. Good to talk with you again. These markets Whether markets reacting to weather conditions aren't they yes We're still in the throes of the dog days of summer year. Still not seeing a lot of rain in the forecast and We still have that same two way. Split between the dry side and the west side of the corn belt. Some spotty rain so no in places that need them. But you just kind of hoping you get one to get you by to the next one and some of those places right. I mean just so dry when we we've talked about this before trying to determine whether the the good areas have been getting rain do they overcome offset the areas. That aren't getting the rain. And that's the big question to be answered as we move through Into harvest time right. Yeah and and To be honest it's not easy to answer But i still tend to think that we're going to be on the short side overall nationally and I think the big concern still are the swing states of iowa minnesota this year. Of course minnesota's getting the worst of that and they're dried state and there's not a lot of hope in the immediate seven day forecast To to expect much change there and then I was doing okay. But they're still a bit on the borderline and still the western corn better area Could use some of those timely moisture's that you're talking about talking about this yesterday and i recall you you bringing up the rationing word earlier on but when you have these Stocks this tight and if you have production concerns like we're having this year. I mean don't you have to look at the possibility of really rationing demand. Yeah and I i think we really saw that in spades earlier this year we saw a big surge of demand for both cash corn and soybeans in late april early. May that seemed to be when the kansas fever pitch of this Demand side of the market really peak since then It's been a little more balanced. I'd say the cash corn prices have held up better than the cash. Swigging prices definitely but here we are In the last week of july were Just two days away. From starting the delivery period for august soybeans and we still have august soybeans trading fifty four cents higher than the september contract which is only one month later. That's that's still a strong sign. A commercial bidding up the need to secure soybeans now as opposed to waiting one month.

Mike adams you can rely on us for the latest farm and ranch news from around the world information. America's farmers and ranchers need to know on a go. Now back to mike adams all right as we head towards fall harvest. Let's talk it over with. Mike steen hooke executive director of the soy transportation. Coalition about how we're set up to handle the harvest to kind of wait also to see. Just how big. It's going to be some places not so big and other places could be a very big crop indeed so we take a look at conditions across the country. Mike thank you for joining us and How to how things set up we look at You know the rivers. We look at The roads we look at the rail system. Are we ready for this harvest. Well i think the the real important background is that we have a global supply chain that remains under stress and it really you know impacts all of the modes of transportation. What gets most of the publicity is the the real challenges with securing containers A very overly stressed poor area with ships lining up and all of those things and that's and rightfully so but you know we also have a perpetual challenges even pretend democ of getting enough truck drivers to move products around and clearly. A lot of farmers moved you know transport their own product. Were just hire someone to do it. But that certainly affects the movement of agricultural shipments and hewlett barge. transportation is. Well you can see. We've seen rates go up with all of the significant volume. being moved. freight railroads are under stress as well. So you know. I think you know. Overall we're pretty well positioned but i think that's the real important Context for all of that. So i wouldn't be surprised. Unfortunately if there are some challenges in getting products from plenty to point be it. Sounds like the potential there for some backups. And we kind of live in that world. Today things being delayed. We're we're you're always waiting for something to to get to you. That used to come so much more quickly. And that's gonna be the same moving out right so When we look at those port backups on the west coast and some of these other issues. You just talked about getting drivers things like that That potentially Could be a big problem harvest time. Yeah and you know. Thinking really changed on a diamond. Obviously you know. Kobe is a real You know it's something that can really throw a wrench into our plans. You know not only just the virus itself but then there's also almost a separate issue of how we of the society respond to that virus. And whether we you know increasingly imposed lockdowns or any kind of restrictions You know it wasn't just a handful of weeks ago that china's most busiest ports and in the southern part of the country. They had kind of flare up with kobe. And then all of a sudden there's a lot of restrictions imposed at that port and all of a gets without really much anticipation of it. There was a huge backlog. In one of the most important gateways the in and out of china those things can happen throughout the country. And so you know it really is and finding with the whole area supply chain people who have been following this for years it used to be the the the design with the have just in time delivery and that all works well and there's a real economic reason for that that works well of everything is running in synchronization and you're not having any kind of delays and ones that one of the things the last year and a half potus is.

We are going to talk about infrastructure. Not only the package being still worked on in washington. But just where are we as we head into the fall harvest season where are we with rails and and river transportation locks and dams and and course port situation. Are we ready for this harvest. And we'll talk about that with mike. Steve hooke executive director of the soy transportation. Coalition weren't talk markets with dean's lead analyst todd holtman and we'll get another crop report time. We go to eastern kansas. We will talk with. Ken mcauley about how things are looking in his area. Let's start off a check on the news with todd. Neely from dt. And todd good to talk with you doing. Good morning mike. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having me well. Good that we're both here a let's Let's look at this latest move by the f. Ethanol industry trying to get the attention. I think of the biden administration so saying hey we can help meet these climate goals if you just give us a chance. And they've written a letter From their member companies saying that they can hit net zero emissions by the year. Twenty fifty i. It just seems like they're trying to get the attention this administration that you don't have to all your eggs in one basket meaning electric vehicles. You have an industry right here right now. That can help you on this. Yeah you know mike. It's interesting because a lot of this story that's that's told to biden in this letter. about reducing emissions and how all can contribute. This is really It's really been a message. That the industry's had for some time. I think You know it's always kind of been in the background. It's always been something that Industry known for a while. But it's improving year in and year out but how it produces ethanol and and particularly its climate. Its climate benefits I think this is probably a one of many steps and maybe to come up with the industry's going to start taking some different Some different tax in terms of trying to reach the biden administration. You know we. We've heard that the rss volumes are delayed for twenty one twenty two So there's a lot of concern When it comes to the us and whether the by epa's is really going to enforce the regulation. Or whether it's just gonna kinda die on the line. And i think i would suspect that this letter that was sent by seventy ethanol companies who are all members of the say I suspect this is just one of many things that the industry is going to attempt to do. And and ways that it's gonna take to Try to gain the attention of the administration. I think they they since the urgency of the moment don't you think the the biofuels industry that Decisions that are going to be made here under. This administration will determine in large part The future of the biofuels industry. Absolutely like i think that that's in play. And i. i also think that one thing to keep in mind too that regardless of what the epa does regardless of what this administration does There's probably always going to be a market for at least ten percent off and all and i know that's not what people wanna hear necessarily The weather you know whatever happens with the. Irs says it doesn't spell the end of the industry but it certainly you know it's an industry that has the potential to grow quite a bit more. I mean we receive what can have on the beach. Fifteen we you know. There's a lot of other things going on. You know high-octane field discussion. I mean there's a lot out there that you know you're talking about reducing climate emissions Ethanol seems to fit in. And not only that like you said it's available now. The industry's raring to go. You know it's always ready for expansion and i It'll it'll be interesting to see if this this particular pledge worksite. I know that a lot of people are frustrated. Enough all right now as to where things stand and it's just well it's just not realistic to think you're gonna just the pardon. The pun flipped the switch said. Everything's electric. i mean. It isn't going to happen. It couldn't happen that quickly no matter how much you wanted to. If if you're on that's if you're long nose law finds of winning it to go that way you'd have to build the infrastructure. You have to make such a change. That doesn't happen overnight. So i think it's nothing else. You would embrace what you have right now. Even if it's your only look at it as a way to you to where you're trying to go if you're making a change absolutely you know like there's a here he said you said something about infrastructure and you're right when it comes to electric vehicle situation there's There's a massive required build out for for electric vehicles to become the next thing And when you look at the up and all industry we've been seeing a build out for quite some time you know. It's kind of kind of evident float. I mean we've had different periods of time where the industry was able to get more done on the infrastructure side of things But it's it's an industry that's been around for a while you know and i and it's It's really it's really kinda surprising where we stand right now. I think a lot of people thought coming into this administration You know we knew there was gonna be climate goals and a lot more aggressive moves on that front and you kind of thought that that's probably would play a role and maybe You know. I think there's still a lot to be done to tell that story and this is I think this is just the first step Going forward and talk about trying to build out an infrastructure. We can't hardly. I mean we've gone two weeks and weeks and they're still can't come to some decision on how to upgrade the infrastructure. We have in place now. Yeah and and you're right you know. We're still seeing in in between the house between senate between the presidency You know there's still a lot going on behind closed doors here about you know. Getting an infrastructure package passed. I think the latest talk. Is this This week i could go on into the weekend And it's really kind of hard to figure out where the divides art and seems like there's a lot of political back and forth on this is there isn't a lot of things in washington That you're right infrastructure is a. It's a huge issue and You know you really like to see some of this. Come to a head and you'd like to see some of it To focus on rural america. So i guess we'll just wait and see but it's kind of a political fight. That doesn't ever seem to end. That's right it just keeps on going. It seems like We're talking with todd holt. i taught hopman todd neely. We're gonna talk for todd. Hope and a little later todd haley. Dtm so as we look for you know some kind of movement here Meanwhile we wait to see what comes to this proposal with the the infrastructure Meanwhile yesterday talked a little bit with the secretary ville sack and he says there are some things happening on his Usda's plan to diversify the the meatpacking industry get help to small producers but again as we talked before small packing plants. I should say at takes a long time to. Yeah absolutely you know and I think. I think it's encouraging sign that we're seeing some action even in congress. Today we've got a number of hearings On the cattle industry and and supply chain that sort of thing. I think the focus has been renewed and i think You know there's gonna be steps along the way we're going to have to have some. Usda intervention whether it'd be offering grants Whatever case may be. And i think this is It's a long term thing you know if we're gonna have a competitive Capital markets and those sorts of things. We're going to have to have a long term strategy. You never have a shortage of hearings. We never have a shortage of those absolutely. Yeah more today todd. Good to talk with you. thanks.

We're talk markets with naomi. Blue total far marketing. We'll take a look at the very challenging weather conditions in the state of montana. We've been talking a lot about the western plains. Western part of the country dealing with heat and drought and some places grasshoppers. Now the state of montana one of those states hard hit were in talk with their state. Statistician coming up on today's program and we're going to talk with the michigan state plant pathologists about the ongoing battle with soybean sistema towed all that coming up on today's show but we're happy to start things off today with a special guest. We have with the secretary of agriculture. Tom bill sack mister secretary. Thanks for joining us. Mike happy you lots to talk about first of all your perspective. Maybe an update on where we are with this infrastructure package. We've heard about it for weeks. Different packages we've heard about you know traditional infrastructure and human infrastructure and and companion bills and things like. That is a bipartisan attempt. What's the latest that you're seeing in what you see is the significance here for agriculture. Listen mike i think the next two weeks. Maybe some of the most important most important two week period for american culture in some time For rural america At stake is the ability of the us. Senate the work in a bipartisan way to establish a commitment infrastructure. That's long talked about it. Never delivered What they're considering is an historic investment in roads and bridges and our transportation system that would allow us to maintain advantage. We have an expert markets at being able to get product market more less expensively so we can competitive price and make our exports attracted to the rest of the world. We're headed toward record export year and agriculture. This year when i was built on that opportunity chancellor finally to connect everyone in america broadband To be extra that everyone has an opportunity to use that twenty per century infrastructure at an for millions of arkansas guaranteed to clean drinking water which unfortunately many rural communities stores as a challenge so very very large opportunities here Really pretty jobs in to improve the infrastructure Parties are continuing negotiate Not easy issues. Certainly when it comes down to how you pay for these These improvements Issues but hopefully they will get get. This worked out there will be at. I suspect they. Bill may not be bipartisan. Bill to be passed on a partisan vote that bill is really designed to address. The challenges of american families Working families middle class families having a tough time with forty healthcare childcare The college Expense and this american families playing back better offered bug. President is designed to really sure up classroom working families and providing additional assistance through foreign tax credits Jewish community colleges increased pell grants expansion of the portal care act subsidies for rural americans Opportunities to create a tax credit at receiving That will make a little for them to take their children at all of this sort of wrapped up in an effort to try to move the economy forward after The difficulties experienced the pandemic and still to take continue to Do what the pandemic And and really helping to really solidify middle class because at the end of the day that's critically important to the future of the country. We're talking to secretary of agriculture tom. Bill you're getting a little bit of a warble in your phone. Line mister secretary. So hopefully that will clear up real quick. What are you hearing from agriculture. How do you respond about their concerns as possible. Tax changes whether stepped up basis or or corporation taxes. Whatever may be capital gains taxes To pay for some of this well. The reality is that No one making less important thousand dollars. It's going to see their taxes. Increase in fact many families will see their taxes decrease because of the child care tax credit. The child The child tax credit to tax credits provide opportunities for working families including farm families And the reality is to step up basis structure currently Ninety almost ninety nine percent of of family farms will be impacted affected by that change So i think there's a the concern. I'll make sure that we maintain the family firm. Notwithstanding of the the need for all this intrastructure and to pay for it. And i'm confident that at the end that will be the case But farmers will benefit from better transportation systems. They will benefit from having access to broadband. They certainly will benefit from having water And their families will will certainly be strengthened by the ability to access education Less expensively Perhaps breath on on the healthcare expense. I get tax. Credits will actually reduce tax burden. You have been very involved with The the packing issue of trying to increase capacity you now funding for for small plant and getting more diversity within the industry. How soon do you think we can see results from this. The first thing is basically listen and learn We've already begun the process of reaching out to those who are considering Producing and constructing plants in missouri nebraska and iowa to find out what challenges they face. We know that there is a need for capital we know there is a need for the development of lender community. That understands This is the industry is willing to work with producer owned groups Above out Production capacity we know that there are challenges with the costs of what. We're gonna put a request for information this week In which we're so sitting information on how best to structure this This program in this effort but our hope is that as we learn more at the tail end of Twenty twenty one twenty twenty two we can begin to make Some assistance to help you already put together. Fifty five million dollars assistance or existing processing facilities To be able to expand their operation to be able to potentially benefit from a marketing across state lines. We also have a one hundred million dollars to defray the expensive inspection piece of these facilities incurred as a result of the pandemic making for the small degrade small processing facilities to stay in business. We're going to have to make the system more resilient mike and the end of the day we're gonna have to make investments in an expanded processing and my hope is that those investments are for producer owned processing facility so that produces benefit from production but also processing real quick labor reform. You've weighed in on this. You think we're going to be able to get something through to help. Ease.

"The index of current conditions in the addiction future expectations fell but the index of current conditions fell much more cheaply. And we think one of the reasons why the index fell so hard is if you look at when we survey people in mid-may and then the week of june twenty first or twenty fifth both corn and soybean futures price fell dramatically. Do you look at the the soybean futures we saw drop of about two dollars and fifty cents very large drop for mid mid june through the nearby corn futures dropped about eighty cents and so even though the prices are still relatively strong to certainly.

Mike adams you can rely on us for the latest farm and ranch news from around the world information. America's farmers and ranchers need to know a now back to mike adams. All right we have a lot to talk about. With tanner beamer national cattlemen's beef association's director of government affairs and market regulatory policy. Tanner thank you for joining us. the sixer ville sack announced. Usda planning spending money funding A small meat processing plants. What's your reaction to that you know that was A really good announcement that we thought came out of. Usda and you're right. There is a lot of money to go around Under the announcement. That secretary vilsek made from council bluffs iowa last friday. We were really pleased to see usda committing allocate. Five hundred million dollars under the bill back better initiative to New entrance into the meat and poultry processing sector specifically on the beef side. You know one of the reasons why we've seen such disparate. Price breads between fed cattle prices and box. Beef prices in the aftermath of the holcomb fire or during the covert in nineteen. Pandemic is because there really is a situation. Now where cattle supplies are well in excess of processing capacity and anytime you have a disruption at the processing sector eve temporary plant closures for cyber attacks or Pandemics it really accentuates the difference between the box beef or between the hooks space and the fed cab supplies and that creates a tremendous leverage problem for cattle producers in some of these fed cattle negotiations and so there was a study done by rob a bank last september that founded the industry could economically accommodate roughly fifty seven hundred hooks of new processing capacity on a daily basis which might not sound like much but over the course of a year. That equates to somewhere in the ballpark of one and a half million head of cattle So it was really encouraging to see. Usda investing in this especially for processors ranging from very small to mid size. You know think anywhere from twenty five headed day to fifteen hundred a day. That's just more hooks in the system more resilient to Whatever market disruptions that we can expect to see in the future. There's always a lot of publicity around the big announcement like last friday. When the announcements made five hundred million dollars for new meat processing capacity but then after the announcement that comes the actual getting it done And that can get kind of lengthy at times and a lot of details to work through. Yeah absolutely and you know. Usda is beginning that process right. And that's that's really the the the big question here right is how exactly are they going to go about getting the money where it needs to go getting it. Into the hands of small businesses that want to construct new packing facility. And then there. There were a host of other things announcing that Executive order from the white house and then usda subsequent announcement as well things like dealing with the product of the usa labeling It sounds like we may be revisiting. The two thousand sixteen obama rule on judah and enforcement of the packers and stockyards act And so we're going to be really paying attention throughout this process is really was The starting gun if you will as we begin what is not a sprint but more of a marathon There are going to be a lot of opportunities for cattle producers to get their voice on the record on some of these big issues And i think usda's beginning that process with what we call a request for information basically just soliciting feedback from the industry on how best to go about implementing the president's executive order and then usda's intend to implement the specifics of that their own agency talkie tanner beamer within cba. Because tanner's you will know Once the excitement of this original announcement is made comes out then it oftentimes he thinks tend to bog down in the bureaucratic process. And as you said the key is does the money get to the right places to the right people So that's what you have to be very Very observant on right. And and keep pushing on that because sometimes it just kind of drifts away and you lose track of things if you don't stay on top of it exactly right and this is. This is a super high priority issue for nca this issue processing capacity because it's part of a larger approach to increase opportunities for profitability for our members which are board of directors indicated at our last convention was one of our top policy priorities for twenty twenty one. And so as we start to look for different ways to increase profitability opportunities in terms of negotiating leverage. Like i said adding more hooks to the system is the best way to ensure that cattle producers have more leverage in these conversations with packers and he can start to put some upward pressure on those fed cattle prices. But that's just one one element of a broader approach that involves market oversight price transparency and price discovery as well and so as we start to look at options that we can get on the ground as soon as possible. You know we were really excited to see this commitment to funds. But you're absolutely right. It is going to require Steady attention and you can rest assured that we are going to be watching this very closely And making sure that. Usda is not Taking their sweet time and implementing those because the problem exists now and that's one of the benefits utilizing some of these leftover american rescue plan funds. is that you don't have to have necessarily new congressional authorization which just add more time to the response on. What is a very real problem in the here. And now yeah secretary ville sack said hopefully year from now we can. We can look at the definite results from this so often these things get started and you get a year down the road and you look back and say whatever happened to that. Whatever happened to the money. So that's what you gotta make sure they stay on top and We actually see something. Come from a. Meanwhile this product of usa label issue Why we've been down this road before. How do you see different this time. Well you know. The product of the usa label effort is is actually a little bit different from some of the previous fights. We've had on say mandatory country of origin labeling. Right as of right now. Product of the usa is generically approved label by the food safety inspection service which means that the product does not have to undergo any source verification. As a matter of fact imported product is eligible to bear that label in the grocery store provided it is repackaged or passes through a usda inspected facility once it arrives in the united states and that we think has the potential to be very misleading for consumers. Who if they were to read product of the usa on a beef package would assume that that is entirely of us origin when that may not be the case so what we have proposed and this is actually very encouraging to see because it was about a month ago that nca filed a petition with the food safety inspection service asking them to do away with the product of the usa label. And if they need to have some sort of a generically approved label for use in the retail sector that that should be a lot more descriptive and transparent with something more akin to protest in the us that way it opens up opportunities for producers. Who sees some value or the opportunity to capture additional value for animals that are actually of united states origin to pursue other voluntary means of labeling that that does have source verification that is required to have product differentiation and they can do that through the agricultural marketing services process verified programs. You know those are currently in place for Certain state departments of agriculture. Use them just to identify Beef products of state origin A lot of the other programs like a non hormone-treated cattle undergo process verified programs so that infrastructure is already in place but the generic application of that label in its current form is is very misleading to consumers and we think that that needs to go away so we were very encouraged to see such a rapid response from the secretary and his team at usda to our petition in having a full top to bottom revisitation of that label and its application in the market. Today is there a label do zinc. We can come up with the labels. It's gonna satisfy Producers and packers and trading partners and consumers. You know. I think that there is an opportunity for that And that's really what we want to do from. The perspective is make sure that we are leveling the playing field for producers that. Have an idea On that could look like to go and be able to Bring forth vp and get it approved through usda Find a supply chain with a packer and a retailer or some other way to bring that product to the consumer. But they need to be able to do it in a way that they're not undercut by again a generically approved label with no source verification or no other needs to verify the origin of the product And so that's what our focus is on. And i do believe that there are opportunities out there. it's just gonna take somebody who's Innovative and has the initiative to engage with packers and retailers. And maybe even consumers to figure out what that needs to look like in order to present a real net return across the supply. Chain all right tanner. We will be watching closely. Thank you very much you bet. Thank you tanner beamer. Nc ba's director of government affairs and market regulatory policy so the administration taking a lot of steps here initial steps and. I think getting a lot of people's hopes up that some of these areas of concern will be addressed..
