"iowa soybean association" Discussed on American Ag Today

"And the threat of four and animal diseases for years. However there's another problem that produces face getting enough labor to keep their operations running smoothly day price lower. Ceo the minnesota pork producers association. The number one challenge they hear about from producers is not enough hired help. It's very serious. It's probably the number one thing that worked producers bring up as a concern now obviously it ranges from farm to farm but it is the number one thing that we hear from folks out there and then followed closely by preparation for foreign animal disease. Because of some of the things that are going on around the globe with african swine-fever first and foremost it just puts more stress on the other workers or the owners of the farm because they're having to put in additional hours or effort that sort of thing just to cover for how much they may be short. It even get to the point where it hurts production. If you're really short of folks. The process of finding enough help is extensive and expensive as well as exhausting. It's certainly takes a lot of time and effort on behalf of form owners to find employees and then also to get them trained up. That's a big investment. In time which money your training up. New employees to chrysler is quick to say that the problem isn't unique to hog farmers. Finding labor is a challenge across. Agriculture is the labor shortage. Goes on long enough. It will put a cap on the amount of food production and limit rural america's chances at a strong economy without adequately. Were you really put a cap on economic development and that doesn't make any difference if it's a farm or another business that's in that real community. You put a cap on that. Real economic development and that results in less tax revenue. It results in fewer kids. That may be an school district. All of that just starts to really kind of feed on itself. Unfortunately and so. That's why we do have folks looking more at foreign labor in in many cases doing it pretty successfully. It is not the cheapest route so nobody does it in order to save money. It is not cheaper labor when we look at bringing in folks on various visas national and state pork associations are working to improve the visa program to make it an easier process to find available labor. We're looking at a work visas. We're not asking for citizenship or that sort of thing. 'cause that brings its own set of political challenges to it and we're just looking for work visas so they would not be on quality path to citizenship. That's its own completely separate conversation. We'd like to see people that are here. Legally and work visas one way to do that. Plus not everyone that comes to this country to work really wants to be a citizen. They're coming here for opportunity financially but it doesn't necessarily mean they wanna live here again day. Price slur is the ceo of the minnesota pork producers association central iowa landowner lee has though implements many conservation practices on his family century. Farm near slater a recent field day showcase how he works with iowa based ranch zone seed cover crops with drones on monday august twenty third the center for rural affairs practical farmers of iowa polk county soil and water conservation district and randazzo hosted the cover crops and saturated buffers teaming up for better water quality. Field day tez. Del says the event featured a demonstration of drones seating cover crops including a multi-species swarm seating by rant ezell. He runs his farm under a land. Owner tenant collaboration. With operator mike helen. Well this is the first year. We've done Seating with drones. it is interesting previously. We've used planes and high clearance Machines like a hagi. We've never tried drilling after harvest because we're trying to get that growth going Earlier in the fall so Drones look interesting I think one of the limitations is going to be seed Tank capacity on the drones. Today they're swarming with three drones. So it makes a little faster but i think to get a lot of seed on on quickly You know a plane or a high clearance machine is going to be faster. the drones however don't damage the crop like a high clearance machine would still says attendees also saw saturated buffer strips on his farm and learned about watershed conservation programs. The iowa soybean association was on hand to discuss how saturated buffers work and the role they play in the iowa nutrient reduction strategy. So what we're trying to do as you know there's no benefit the us trying to clean up our own tie water but it benefits people down the line and we would hope that people you know upstream from us would take an inconsideration water quality and And putting in some of these practices and try to deny defy some so. We're just trying to be good citizens. The field day concluded with lunch conversation and visit from the heartland coop conservation trailer farmers across the us are preparing for corn silage harvest that includes finding what challenges lay ahead and harvesting and storage of corn. Silage caitlyn melander pro vita supplements ford specialist. Spent a lot of time visiting different forms across the united states. Instead of the trans kind of change as you change through the areas because of the different climates so some areas as far as corn. Silage have actually already started. Harvesting are finishing that up those areas like arizona new mexico and florida. And then as you start to go north it kind of changes into getting ready in accord. It looks a little different. So some areas are seeing their tassels. They're waiting for pollination. They're going to start spraying them for diseases and other areas. I was out in ohio and indiana and there are some that were late planet. And they haven't even started tassell so they're going to be a little while until they start. Gearing up for harvest most former aren't strangers to hot weather but this year has had some pretty harsh temperature rises melander says high temperatures can wreak havoc on plants and can result in lower yields barron plants inconsistent amounts of starch and more stress plants 'cause higher nitrate levels. The good thing is that in silent does reduce these up to fifty percent. But you have to be aware of that when you're testing and just watching that areas that have been drought stress. Those should be inside separately in storage area. So when you're nutrition is out there testing they can distinguish the two and then be able to change your diet based on that you should never drought stress green shot. But if you're going to do that just be sure that it has not been drought stress because of this nitrate levels and then as far as safety after piling it's really important to watch recyled gases because they're extremely toxic in the first three weeks and a little bit after that. Just be aware of that risk. She says the smell of silence is a great indicator to problems that need address as well. There's many smells that you can get from them but the three biggest smells that we have. When there's an issue the first one is having vinegar smell so this is when you have. Highest guy said production but it shouldn't be confused with acetic acid production from innocuous another smell as sweet or alcohol smell and this is usually due to high concentrations of ethanol and then the other big smile that we run into issues is musty or moldy and this usually due to aerobic condition so air getting back into the silo performers to best protect their corn silage. She offers this advice. I would say that the best protection and prevention is using an inoculate and then using premium product like our bond silage corn plus that product gives you the production of one to purpose dial or more commonly known as prevalent glycol and so not only are you ensuring reliable fermentation obtaining a high quality feed for your cows which are also getting that added benefit that can just take your silage to the next level caitlyn milliner pro vita supplements forage. This has been american egg today. Produced by the american egg network. I'm jesse allen wishing you a great day..

Three big things you need to know here courtesy of your Iowa soybean farmer three needing more as some of these specifics continue to filter out a USDA on the rotavirus food assistance program the payments will help no doubt acknowledged producers but some sectors are saying this is simply not enough for example national milk producers spokesperson. Chris Gaylon explains the formula for dairy producers rather complex. The water boils down to four a dairy farm production in the first quarter of this year. The payment is going to amount to six dollars and twenty cents per hundred weight and that's a combination of two different funding streams. But the bottom line is we already know what everyone's production was in the first three months of the year and you multiply that time. Six dollars and twenty cents and dad is your payment now there are also questions about say forward contracting and at least for milk. He says one of the things that they've tried to do is make sure other risk protection activities like forward contracting would continue to be eligible with no restrictions on the fat payment providing assistance. Bill fire filed by Senator. Charles Grassley would require. Usda to do four the ethanol industry it would require. Usda to reimburse producers for their feedstock purchases in the first quarter of twenty twenty through the Commodity Credit Corp which growth energy CEO. Emily score says would quote deliver immediately? Relief for biofuel workers farm partners and thousands of rural communities. Legislation follows numerous appeals from growth energy and other arm and biofuel leaders lawmakers and local governments for an industry that has been basically idled since the covert outbreak began making progress on the phase. One trade deal with China but more from a regulatory side than anything else. Jennifer Hillman is a senior fellow for trade. An international political economy with the Council on Foreign Relations and she says that as far as the egg purchase requirements in the Agreement Day are extensive agreement requires China to by twelve point five billion dollars more in agricultural goods this year than it did in two thousand seventeen and an additional one thousand nine point five billion dollars over twenty seventeen levels in twenty twenty one depending on whether you've used Chinese import numbers or US export numbers that mean somewhere between thirty four thirty seven billion dollars in total agriculture purchases. This year so far. She says imports are at five point.

"Twelve thirty five on the big show Clock Bob. Quitting the big show today. Andy and I have been going over this Latest Corona Virus Food Assistance Program For Agriculture Andy We talked with Secretary of Agriculture. Mike Nag in there was an area that was not covered in here. Well a couple of areas. You talked about One of those though The ethanol industry and we have on the telephone line with us. I believe Andy Mighty shos talking to us today. Good friend of the Big Show. Executive Director. Our renewable fuels association here For some real time reaction to USDA's announcement or I guess money in your case non-announcement announcement What do you? What do you make all of this? Well rightly or wrongly. You know the. Usda for the last several weeks is pretty much and sometimes in fairly blunt language told us that you know they're not going to give any money to the biofuels industry to help get through this time unless Congress directs them to we think that's a mistake Along with a lot of other people around the world or around the country I guess we do think the. Usda has the authority to do this and And should do it. And they have and they have funds there that they could use to do this But if that's going to be their position then we have no choice but to look to Congress and the house Recently passed a provision that would provide some economic assistance to us. And maybe as early as today I don't really WANNA scoop their their news. But I do believe that Senator. Grassley is operatives working on some legislation introduced that would would Provide some support as well. What what type of support do you need money or or how would you like to see that done you know? I mean I'd like to be creative. I like to think outside the box. But we're in a situation where there's just not a lot of options right now. We we expect about forty percent of Iowa's ethanol capacity is production capacity as offline We'll get some new numbers later today. It might be a little bit below that but it's still going to be close to forty There's just no way. The government can hit some magic button and restore that demand in short order. So you're basically left with a choice and that is you're either going to provide a cash infusion to get these facilities through this You Know Covid era of demand destruction or you're going to see a lot of them you know. Run out of money going bankruptcy. Some not have the cash to even by corn to start up when demand does ultimately return so That's what the government has done for many other industries And while it's not necessarily creative they do it because it works and If we want to see these locally owned ethanol plants you know stay locally owned and and survive this that's what Congress or the USDA. He's GonNa have to step up and do well and The ripple effect obviously down through the industry to what we're talking about with corn and soybean prices greatly depends on that industry being viable and being operational and being in place. Yeah if you think about it about nationwide real close to forty percent of corn goes into an ethanol plant Upper thirty percents On a typical year now. Obviously we're making more than ethanol we're making the distillers grains and there's corn oil and there's lots of other products even to that people have learned is pretty important in lots of industries The comes from US but here in Iowa it's close to sixty percent so almost sixty percent of corn first time it's going to be processed. There's going to be an and all and I mean that's just a huge part of our market It's something that we've always been very happy about it. I mean that's the whole reason. Farmers got involved in created the modern dry mill. Ethanol industry was they wanted to add value and create a market for their ever-growing yields of corn. And so we've always prided ourselves on being a good place to take that corn and having to be a win win so you know it's it's hard to see these plants shut down into see farmers you know looking for other options of of where to go with her their corn or of livestock producers. You know not not having access to the steelers grains that they become So accustomed to it's a great affordable source of protein and and we want get these plants going but the bottom line is going to take months to get demand back to levels where you don't have all this capacity offline overhanging the market even now when you get a little bit of good news like plants pop on and then it like more plants come on back online than are required for the little bit of good news and we're just GonNa see that Little Ping Pong Until we get back to normal demands. And that's going to be a long time. And that's that's why we definitely need some help and you know we'd like the USDA to just to do it we think they have the authority and the cash to do it but if it takes congress than we are asking our legislative leaders to to direct the USDA to do it Well we'll keep in touch Will keep up with. What's going on money? I guess I just ask. What do you think be You know what do you think? The chances are something coming through Congress at this point. I think people understand how important this is. I don't think it seems to me that the you know the the bill they pass out house is probably not going to fly through the Senate to say the least but the Senate is going to work on. I do think that they will come together. With another proposal. To help out the economic devastation. From from all these shutdowns and you know the shelter in place orders and everything and and I think there's a good shot. We can get by a biofuels package in there I think what the House did was very similar to to what industry been asking for from the USDA differences here. And there you know is it. Bushels is a gallons but the end of the day. We need a reasonable way to give an appropriate amount of of assistance to these facilities and and to see them through and we either do that. or. I think you're going to see some of them. Go Away so I'm actually optimistic. That while this next package might take a few weeks yet to put together we we can. We can be in the final pack Well like I said. We'll we'll keep in touch with the as we have been As we all get through this and appreciate your time today money as always anytime thank you. Yeah you bet. Monte Shaw Executive Director Iowa Renewable Fuels Association Bob With you continued still out there. And that's one of the things that Secretary Nag mentioned earlier was This direct assistance isn't perfect and certainly renewable fuels have been hit hard during this period. Also yeah exactly and I think Monty Is Talking to as well about another eight package that Still working through Congress. There may be something in there for renewable fuels but Secretary Nag pointed that out earlier force. Hey Andy let's move on the three big things you need to know brought to you by your Iowa. Soybean farmers planting progress in fact corn planning basically is complete here in the state of Iowa before Memorial Day with a big number showing up with. Usda NASA their weekly report ninety six percent to the crop in the ground sixty three percent of it has emerged soybeans Coming along nicely as well. Crop moved to eighty six percent planted almost nearly a month ahead of last year and three weeks ahead of average cares with the. Usda NASU says about a quarter Dean are off the ground nationally eighty percent complete planning wise fifty three percent Soybean wise eighty percent on corn. And you can see all of the numbers out on the big show. Website seeing an increased price of gasoline and therefore that start to be good because it indicates increasing demand six and a half cents higher this past week Patrick. Dehaan of gas buddy says the increase is attributed to eight nearly five percent increase in gasoline demand. gasoline dancing that quotas long states continue to loosen restrictions. It'll mean more motorists on the road and filling their tank direct assistance details continue to filter out from USDA as to how it is going to assist of food fuel and fiber producers for disruptions in the industry beyond their control caused by covid nineteen in the pandemic. You know this is much needed assistance first and foremost and so. We're appreciative of First Congress Allocating these dollars and then. Usda and the trump administration. You know getting these pushed out and in doing so by the end of May which is what they said they do. So high was secretary of Agriculture. Mike Nagging daily addressed to the food and fiber industry.

"It's morning edition from NPR news I'm Rachel Martin and I'm Steve Inskeep after a summer of a polling mass shootings Congress is considering gun legislation the White House is now involved but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says any legislation doesn't matter much unless he learns that president trump is willing to sign it until that happens all of this is theatrics some Democrats have been talking with the White House including our next guest senator Chris Coons senator welcome back to the program on the September eleven. thank you Steve and am as we talk on September eleven it's important to remember the sacrifice of thousands of Americans we've lost twenty three hundred in Afghanistan in forty four hundred in Iraq and have spent nearly six trillion in combating terrorism later today we have a hearing on a bipartisan bill to improve our strategy but today let's focus on god yeah absolutely because we've had these domestic acts of violence again and again do you feel after your talks at the White House that you know what the president wants no. exactly one of the challenges of legislating with our president is that he can make a public commitment on Tuesday and then reverse himself and reject exactly the same bipartisan compromise on Thursday I am optimistic after several conversations that a bill that senator Pat Toomey and I have written and introduced the next and I'll notification act which requires that when a Fallon lies and tries to buy a gun in a gun store lies on the background check form there will be prompt notification to state police it is a modest reasonable initiative that would bring law enforcement in and give communities notification when someone who really shouldn't have a gun is trying to get one how do you talk to when you're a democratic senator and you had over the White House to talk about gun control. well my policy folks have a talk to the head of ledge affairs here accueil and I've actually heard from of onka we've text and spoken several times and I've mostly spoken with senators to me and Graham on the Republican caucus and then senators Murphy in mansion implement all in my caucus over the last month we've had continually communicated to try and keep some forward movement on a whole package of ideas that we think are an active role we should take up and vote on the bipartisan background checks bill that the house and a six months ago but there are other things in addition to that that we could also do that I would support do the practical possibilities here seem awfully small awfully narrow to you compared to the way you see the problem. yes I think there is a lot we could and should do in background checks in and taking weapons of war off the streets of the United States in dealing with mental health in improving and the tools that communities and families have to deal with a dangerous situations but I'm concerned we will take very small steps relative to the very large problem we have is a country with gun related violence you did allude just now to mental health which is something that Republicans have been forceful in raising or more forceful than some other possible measures I presume you don't think mental health focus is sufficient here. it's not Steve we don't do enough to provide support to individuals and families in crisis it's also not a direct link I I think by over emphasizing mental health were further stigmatizing the twenty percent of adult Americans who have some mental health diagnosis. we need more research and we need more resources to make sure we're caring for those who have a mental health related crises but frankly the wide availability of guns and in particular the ways in which we fail to enforce our existing laws and should strengthen our laws such as background checks to make it harder for those whom we all agree shouldn't have guns like convicted felons to get access to a a new N. P. R. PBS newshour Marist poll shows again broad public support for some gun control measures but of course it's different for Republicans do you feel that Republicans have been able to make the political case for some kind of gun measure. I think the the politics of this are clear and that in the upcoming election the consequences in the country and for the Republican Party if there's literally no movement if there's nothing in acted or significant about what should drive us is wanting to improve the safety of our schools our communities and our families senator Chris Coons Democrat from Delaware thanks so much thank you Steve. farmers in the world Midwest say they're struggling they blame president trump's ongoing trade war and a recent decision on renewable fuels made from corn and soybeans that helps the oil industry here's I will public radio's clay masters near his farm just north of the morning Erin Lehman steers his tractor down a rural road carrying a couple loads of Hey Lehman is president of the Iowa farmers union and says his members are in rough shape we are tightening their belts we're talking to our lenders are landlords are input suppliers trying to find any way we can to cut costs just to make ends meet Lehman didn't vote for Donald Trump and he says with low commodity prices Midwest farmers are concerned about the escalating trade war instead we chose to install over trade allies pick all sorts of fights with their trade allies and then go to China and may our rate just a man's. that we knew were not going to be mad the trump administration has doled out billions of dollars in relief to farmers for taking the brunt of the trade war and back in June president trump came to council bluffs Iowa with an announcement meant to calm those concerns his administration cleared the way for higher blends of corn based ethanol for context here forty percent of the United States corn crop goes to ethanol production we lifted the restriction forty fifteen. just in time to fuel America's summer vacations we just. the president also granted dozens of waivers to oil refineries exempting them from blending ethanol that's leading more than fifteen ethanol plants to close their doors trump recently tweeted he would be unveiling a giant package that would help these farmers but I would democratic congresswoman Cindy acne who faces a tough race next year says she'll believe when she sees it he said he's the best thing that's ever happened farmers and literally two months later had his finger on issuing waivers to Exxon and chevron multi billion dollar companies but some farmers like Dave Walton with the Iowa soybean association welcome the president's negotiating we can only talk so much before we have to take action he took action we really saw this common he campaigned on it so it's no surprise one voted for the president in twenty sixteen he admits the negotiations have gone on longer than he thought they would and soy biodiesel has also been affected by those refinery waivers ask him if he's voting for trump next year my book still up for grabs economist Ernie Gossett Creighton University says his research shows the president's trade policies are shrinking the world economy Goss overseas a monthly survey of royal bank CEOs in the Midwest and plains seven out of ten of the bankers support either continuing with the territory in some cases raisins terrace so they their belief is that the sure the long term gain while out weigh the short term pain that anxiety is something Democrats running for president are talking about in Iowa Democrats are hoping to peel off some of trump's support it's high hopes in swing states like Iowa which went for the president by almost ten points in twenty sixteen for NPR news I'm clay masters in des Moines. this is NPR news and you are listening to KCRW.

southeast Asians coming here listen to the president of the Minnesota farmers union Kerry word issue told CNN this week that even the president's supporters are being hurt and struggling in this trade war even with the money that the administration is giving them to help them through this tough pass but passage out to take a listen words in quarters and tweets that doesn't doesn't pay the farmers bills that doesn't solve the problem we're dealing with and and you know this song like I said earlier the some self inflicted by our president and on we definitely agree or at the beginning that we it doesn't appear that there is a plan B. if people on the front lines and they're saying the trade war is directly hurting them and China is not bearing all the burden of this day are bearing the burden of that so there's a couple things to say first of all this president has the backs of farmers and all the all the money we're taking an or terrorists why that is going right to the forms to give us a let's make no mistake about it China is targeting those forms to buckle our needs I think whenever we talk about the Chinese issue it's really important to just go over the seven things were fighting for its the cyber and we can't going all seven I know you're there seven let's just regular knowledge hot pots would you this is a sampling significant problems including killing Americans with fan on opioids that this president is standing up to China would you acknowledge that Bill Clinton got China into the WTO and the George Bush Joe Biden and rock Obama stood by what we lost so I will I don't know that I was now is about five million and is there is there is pretty much a broad consensus the United States and China is a bad actor and on Capitol Hill and they are behind this president farmers are behind this president farmers are sorry to lose our nation in the pain the Iowa soybean association president is everything the Iowa soybean association president Lindsey Greer says quote short term stairsteps subsidies was of what the administration is offering these farmers or poor remedy for trains uses your negotiations right now with China are all talk and no action winner that's one of the farmers have this off there was talk about about the strategy here because there's a very clear strategy going back tomorrow Lago once in the spring of twenty seventeen the president has always been willing to talk to the Chinese but when the Chinese who failed to deliver when they renege on their commitments he's taken action and if you look at the arc of the if you look at our women of the negotiations hundred days after Mar a Lago they didn't do anything so we had a three oh one investigation signaling to China do things we had to add chairs when they failed to do things and we went to when's areas they made us more promises we want sack and a means for promises here's the thing we've talked with the Chinese for decades about changing their ways right they are not going to change their ways unless the president actually has action the back seven years old and you you in the administration keep on saying that the entire burden of these terrorists in the street or spend that much I absolutely can study for researcher at Harvard University Chicago the I. in math and the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston MA found that US importers are shouldering about ninety five percent of the price change from the terrace and China is shouldering only five percent that dog won't hunt let's do some math here right you put on two hundred and ten percent terror of some two hundred that are you saying that their research I Ong hang on just do some math with two hundred billion dollars we put on a ten percent tariff in China the values their currency by twelve percent okay is it our consumers very anything on that now we have seen absolutely no evidence in the price data we consume that's not showing up in the consumer price index China is our last June pricey hers on hurting anybody in the you know they're they're not hurting anybody here then why are you here in China the one I saw when the president the lady's terrace that were supposed to hit the wood hitting Christmas why do you call a Christmas present to the American people to delay that could into the late those terrorists if that doesn't specifically suggest that the terrorists would have been borne by American consumers here yes the wisdom of that decision because I while I was there when when you're saying that the terrorists are great and you're not imposing the terrace are great well let me answer that okay so I was in the oval office when we had detectives come in and they said look let's wait till December for the fifteenth because we bought and all of our stuff is going to be on the shelves and we did it in dollar base contracts which means we don't have any ability to shift the burden to the Chinese thought were also doing this president is we're moving our supply chain and manufacturing out of China as fast as we can so the president made a wise decision would build goodwill with the Chinese and which protects consumers from any possible Christmas I can impact is once we get past that these businesses are doing their contract in a way which won't harm consumers so we're in a situation where consumers have not been heard Chinese during the whole burden and guess what consumers spend fourteen trillion dollars a year if you put ten percent tariffs on three hundred billion that's starting to you know how much that is that's one fifth of a percent a possible impact your at one I think we're out of time but I do want to give you an opportunity to just address the fact that you keep saying that the Chinese bearing all the burden and that goes against what we're hearing from researchers at Harvard University Chicago the I. in math the federal reserve bank of Boston former trump advisor Gary Cohn going to class with quite a bit the editorial board of the Wall Street journal which is very conservative economist after kana says that you're not being straight with the American people on whose bearing the burden of these terrorists why are all these people lining you telling the truth so all I would say to you is is look at the data there's absolutely no evidence no evidence whatsoever did you look at America there's no evidence whatsoever that Americans consumers are very many this we know that China is slashing their prices are slashing the value they want their hemorrhaging hemorrhaging the manufacturing base be happy to look at some of those studies but I can tell you this this president is committed to stand up to China and getting a good deal for the American people and he will continue to do what needs to be done the strategy has been put in place going back tomorrow Lago in we are winning all right I think a lot of people out there who don't feel as though we're you doll but this is going to go to change I would simply say that this this is this is the battle of our time because if we don't get it right with China structurally that's gonna harm not just our economy and our workers well it's gonna harm the global accounted look with the trade deal we all hope that it had to be hopping up hope that it's successful thank you so much of our it's a huge day on the campaign trail in South Carolina specially for one particular candidate hoping to pick up momentum with African American voters with him he's really been struggling what's mayor peace plan to break through all asking.

"Nobody who's been paying attention to the current state of global trade your mistakes vacations and said it's adjusting its outlook for the rest of the year downward in particular the company said farmers had by tariffs and retaliatory tariffs also a ton of bad weather this spring just aren't all that keen on making big investments right now market place's Kimberly Adams is on the farm be today farmers have been feeling the brunt of the US China trade war China is blocking some agricultural products and imposing higher taxes on others farm costs are rising with terror of sun aluminum and steel Michael nephew is an economist at the American farm bureau federation it's going to be a difficult decision to try and look to invest a million dollars and a new piece of equipment if you're not even sure if you're gonna make a profit this year or next year or the year after that that uncertainty is showing up in declining business investment across the board but with many farms still family run that risk looks even scarier Monty Peterson is a fourth generation farmer growing corn and soybeans in North Dakota he also works with the US soybean export council when we see the uncertainty of of revenues we tend to tighten our belts pull back on the reins a little bit a real stretch you nor investment back into our operations that means more farmers holding back on big purchases from companies like John Deere Lindsey Greiner as head of the Iowa soybean association he farms corn soybeans and pigs in southeast Iowa we're on in our combines probably six years old we normally be looking at trading it right now and we have no plans to do that instead he says if you need to quit meant he'll try to find something in good shape and used in Washington I'm Kimberly Adams for market place there are some housing numbers out this morning the generated a little bit of buzz housing starts were down in July for the third straight month nothing panic about starts tend to bounce around a lot they get revised allowed to but as so often happens you dig into the fine print to bed and you get some wisdom the decline was in multi family housing single family construction was actually up the hair so marketplace York Barris did a survey of what the other stuff going on in this economy interest rates in terrace and labor costs what that might be doing a new home construction building a single family home is less risky for a developer they build a house somebody comes and buys it but multi family homes tend to be a riskier proposition says George for to an economist with realtor dot com self that market tends to be a little more volatile building a multi family unit requires more labor and labor is expensive right now it also requires everything from steel and lumber to counter tops and appliances all of those are subject to terrorist says they're all fair weather chief economist at right then any time there's a bird in like tariff all the other burdens become even more impactful multi family units could be profitable in densely populated areas but that's we're building costs for those are high it says Robert beats with the national association of home builders about a third of a typical apartment buildings development costs which includes the plot development process that about a third of it is due to regulatory burdens the entire housing market is also facing uncertainty consumers are spending money but when it comes to big ticket items they're holding back and so we're developers says Lawrence Alice who teaches economics at Carnegie Mellon University we see this not only for housing but we see it on for for other categories of two doubles and also for business investment Alice in others say it don't read too much into these most recent numbers despite three straight down.

"It's only eight percent if we were to get rid of oil and coal and guest that would be a gift to Ladimir Putin. Who knows it energy is called the master resource. For a reason. And he uses it as a geo political weapon. And in terms of trying to accomplish things with global climate change and emissions. Only thirteen percent of world emissions come from the United States. Thirty three percent right now come from China and India and emissions in the United States. Have actually been going down over the past ten years because of the innovation that we've used in the United States innovation is the answer. We pay five partisan legislation. Aiming at new technology, a new age nuclear power plants aimed at carbon capture and sequestration. We have a hearing tomorrow in the Environment Public works committee that I chair looking called the use it act looking at ways to use carbon dioxide and captured and sequester it and use it productively. So the solution to climate change is not government regulation. It's it's innovation. And that's the way we ought to be heading Senator John Barrosso next up is Senator ROY blunt. The vice president day was just back from Colombia, and what to talk some and did talk some about Venezuela, and what's happening there at critically important moment. I think for Venezuela. We see the South American countries beginning to stand up with the person, we're recognizing as the president of the country the presidents of Colombia and Chile and Paraguay with him last week. The Lima groups supporting the way love democracy this week. Vice president talked about the d'oro dancing on the stage while his troops are firing on Dennis who are just trying to get basic food necessities is really a critical moment. We don't wanna let what happened in Syria happen in Venezuela where the moment was missed where people trying to get freedom. We're allowed to be repressed and the world community. Didn't stand up President Trump. I relate to step up and recognize a government that can return democracy to Venezuela, South American presidents, president and countries all over the world standing with them. This is an important moment. We don't want to miss it. I'll also mentioned that the vice president particularly talked about the leadership of Senator Rubio and Senator Scott from Florida about what they're doing to encourage and assist and aid the potential for freedom in Venezuela. Next is Senator Joni Ernst born alive babies folks last night, we had a vote on protecting the life of a baby that was born. And our Senate colleagues across the aisle rejected a notion that a baby should be protected, regardless of the circumstances that brought that baby into being. So I just want to express my disappointment today. A low point truly for the United States of America. You know, it is a common belief that we should protect the most vulnerable amongst us. And I don't know of anyone in this room. That would argue a baby that is born alive. Even from a botched abortion is not a human being and is not the most vulnerable amongst us. So severe disappointment folks in the vote from last night. But I wanna thank Senator Ben Sasse for bringing the Bill forward. It wasn't important vote for us. We will continue fighting. I'd like to move on to China, and our trade negotiations says, well, I am encouraged when I hear that there has been significant progress coming through those negotiations in my home state of Ohio at trade is very very important and one in five jobs in my home state of Iowa is tied directly to international trade. So we want to continue supporting the president. And I hear from my farmers that they believe in what he is doing. They are glad that someone is finally standing up again. China and they're unfair trade practices. But what I've heard from farmers with the Iowa soybean association is that it does keep them up at night. They do want to say additional progress with these trade talks. We would like to see them done soon. But we do want a good deal. So with those challenges we do have opportunity and so instead of saying markets go away for our farmers. We would like to say expanded access, and we hope that the administration is able to achieve that goal. So thank you. News conference earlier today on Capitol Hill. Final Senator is Todd young. Days ago. The governor of Virginia indicated on a radio interview that he thought it was acceptable to terminate the life of a child after that child had been born people were horrified in my home state of Indiana and across this country in congress had an opportunity to act yesterday through the born alive abortion survivors Protection Act, all this act simply said was that child that is born alive deserves a chance at life. What could be more fundamental than that? We were standing up as a body as the United States Senate. We're standing up on on behalf of those who don't have a voice against infanticide. Decastro votes in indicate where we stood on this issue. And unfortunately, so many of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle did not choose life. I will continue to defend as so many, my colleagues the lives rights in property of all human beings. Thank you. Returning to take questions. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell. Question.
