Twenty twenty one so bad as we still had lots of moisture in deeper soils in the state we really had a wet twenty tens in general So we had a lot of water in the ground and so what happened. Last year is the plants or tapping that water. We continued to dry out the the soils this year and the recharge season coming up here in september into october.

Conditions are slightly better than north dakota with twenty nine percent of the crop in dent stage around that andover south dakota area. John hoarder is pleasantly surprised with the recent rains. And what that's been doing for the crops and going forward he says temperatures and test weight will be the key for that crop in a lot of. It's still to the end someone with tip back. Maybe an inch inch and a half but they filled pretty well we pollinated pretty well just appears at the colonel depth is fairly shallow right now but Like i say these.

Russell says the house has reached a tentative agreement to vote on an infrastructure plan at the end of september also that they would pass the so called budget resolution which will carry instructions for the house and the senate to start working on a three and a half trillion dollars human infrastructure Package so it looks like that. Nancy pelosi has figured out a way to thread the needle and satisfy the nine or ten bader democrats in the house or objecting to moving forward with the partisan reconciliation bill before they moved on the infrastructure. Bill so i think they'll get the infrastructure. Bill passed by the end of september which they need to do because that bill expires The end of september. And then they'll start working on the reconciliation bill three and a half trillion dollar reconciliation. Bill will be a priority in the fall through the rest of the year if this were to be three and a half trillion dollar package That would include you know spending to that level and have to be paid for. We're talking about some very large tax increases. The corporate rate is likely to go up from twenty one percent of some higher level. The president wants to take it to twenty eight percent. I don't think that could get through The democratic caucus in the house and senate so maybe it go to twenty five or twenty six percents somebody's farm level though or farm oriented Tax provisions are very troubling The elimination of the so called stepped up basis.

This Week In Agriculture
"This week in agriculture a production of the red river farm network with a look at markets. I'm randy conan. The supreme court ruling favoring oil refiner seeking waivers from the renewable fuel standard expected to have a big impact on demand for corn and soybean oil martensson egg risk management president. Randy martensson says. That decision will impact demand for egg commodities. Well that's kind of what they're thinking is that it could slow down the demand on the biofuel side which will slow down ethanol demand and slow down the biofuel or the the oil demand for bio fuel so biodiesel. So that is that's kind of what's hitting the market. But i think in the end you know we're still not we're still going to see the demand i mean. You look at clean energy. The ethanol is still something. We're going to have to use global commodity analytics and consulting president. Mike sue slow said the combination of weather and that supreme court ruling had traders throwing in the towel this week soybean oil especially down over five percent almost five and a half percent you know getting close to the limit down level this is really an issue for the trade and i think it couldn't have been at a worse time when it comes to much-needed rains in parts of illinois and indiana and even some in the northern plains areas not nearly enough but at least there is a rain on the radar screens Going into the weekend trade basis levels remain strong for corn soybeans across the northern plains bannon company market analysts christie van on tells farmers to be mindful of what month that basis is being based on. That's one thing to really know when you look at those basis levels when you're deciding that if you have all crop on hand is what month. They're going after and you don't blame an elevator and ethanol plant for shifting up that risk because we learned from the mehta july contract. A lot of people got caught squeezed there in that contract and we're dealing with that now and so somebody's levels look extremely attractive but we just need to know what they're going off of and related back to the cash price you know whereas the cash price a survey of market analysts by the wall street journal expects corn supplies to be roughly four point. Two billion bushels as of june first. That's down from five billion bushels a year ago so bean stocks expected to be seven hundred ninety five million bushels down from one point four billion last year. We'd stocks at the end of the quarter are expected to be at five hundred. Excuse me eight hundred. Fifty eight million bushels down from one point zero three billion a year ago. Usda will be releasing the quarterly stocks report. Along with the planted acreage report at eleven o'clock central time on wednesday comstock investments market analyst. Joe camp says traders will be very cautious ahead of those reports cautious by say farmers who are somewhat in in many areas worried about what they might produce Worried about the upcoming weather turning hot and dry again But also some cautious on the part of speculative buyers. They've mostly been selling in terms of profit taking for the week. Minneapolis july. We'd gained sixty cents. September was up forty one and three quarters chicago july. We go down twenty five and three quarter cents. Kansas city july we it was down six and a quarter cents. July corn losing eighteen and three quarter cents on the week. December corn was down forty seven cents for the week. July soybean's down sixty six and a quarter cents in november soybeans. Were down forty three and a quarter cents on the week. Twenty seven hundred head of cattle sold at the rugby livestock auction during this week sale. Normally that auction barn would have gone to sales every other week by this time of the year. Three to six year. Old cow calf pairs ranged from fifteen hundred to seventeen hundred fifty dollars solid mouth pair selling for fourteen hundred to sixteen hundred sixty dollars. Slaughter cows weighing thirteen to eighteen. Hundred pounds brought sixty seven to seventy nine dollars per hundred weight and the next sale will take place on monday with over four hundred and fifty cow. Calf pairs already consigned.

This weekend news. I'm cara heart for the red river farm network. Agriculture debt at commercial banks continues to decline in the first quarter and farm. Loan performance improved a report from the federal reserve bank of kansas city. Found the number of real estate and production loans declined and farm debt dropped more than five percent from one year ago while the outlook is positive for most commodities. The report said the drought and lack of profitability in the cattle market. Our concerns a long awaited conversation took place on wednesday in the senate. Agriculture committee hearing that hearing came on the heels of a growing conversation about cattle markets across the country senate ag committee addressed a wide range of issues including price discovery and differing industry views on how to achieve it market. Transparency and oversight and the beef processing capacity saint on south dakota rancher and vice president of the us cattlemen's association. Justin tupper said. This hearing is critical because there is a crisis in rural america producers. Understand and want the packer to make money. But since two thousand fifteen. Corporate packers gross margin has ballooned from an average of one hundred hundred dollars a head to well over a thousand dollars ahead. Packers of enjoyed unbelievable profits harvesting around one hundred and twenty thousand head per day well cattle producers go out of business and consumers pay double or even triple at the meat counter on a six to three decision. The us supreme court ruled in favor of oil refiner seeking waivers from the renewable fuel standard. The court ruled that providing waivers allowing small oil refineries to not have to blend the required levels of ethanol into gasoline did not exceed the epa's authority the ruling essentially allows the epa to extend small refinery waivers to any refinery anytime opening up the number of refineries eligible for the exemption. That decision stems from may. Twenty eight teen challenge brought against the epa by an agriculture coalition renewable fuels association senior vice president of government public affairs. Troy brayden camp says. The supreme court only considered one of three part decision from the tenth circuit court of appeals case to define. What extension meant so really. That is where this decision lies is. Is that there is now in their mind. The extension component to the rfs and a small refinery exemption can happen at any time. I think it's important to point out that the other two components to the tenth circuit decision which were not challenged withstand. Today are very important. And frankly very positive the biofuel sector the biden administrations epa will now have to apply new standards when assessing these seventy pending small refinery exemptions. The minnesota legislature has until the end of the month to finalise the budget. The agan transportation bills have passed. Both chambers are awaiting governor walls signature. The senate passed the environment bill on tuesday night in the house. Took it up on friday. And lobbyists bruce cliven says many of the policy provisions in the environment. Bill were dropped. But merely california cars they add. Groups are concerned about that both with the long term effect on diesel and the reduction in the use of biofuels. If that rule goes through governor waltz didn't think it was important enough to involve them and he wants to do it through rulemaking so they ended up dropping that federal reserve board chair. Jerome powell is seeing significant uncertainty as the country reopened from cova but he does not expect inflation to reach levels seen in the nineteen seventies in a hearing for a house subcommittee pal emphasized. The fed will take steps to keep inflation under control. The central bank will continue buying bonds at the current pace until the economy makes substantial progress. The value of good cropland across the northern plains is up ten to fifteen percent from one year ago farmers national company area sales manager. Brian moore says the sale prices are approaching. All-time highs prices for ranch and pasture. Land is up but not at the level seen with crop ground. The inventory of farms available for sale is at a low point. The white house in a bipartisan group of senators reaching agreement on an infrastructure solution this week the one point two trillion dollar deal is less than the two point three trillion dollar plan that president biden initially proposed.

I'm randy conan reporting agriculture's business from washington dc. I'm keira heart for the red river. Farm network reporting from kabul don wick on the red river farm network the cattle industry convention in san antonio texas. I'm megan overby on the river. Farm network news happens. That's important to your farm and your bottom line. The first choice is the red river farm network with a look at weather this week in agriculture. I'm megan overby on the red river farm network. The first day of summer in the northern plains was rainy for many farmers and ranchers but those rains will not be enough to change bottom line dryness across the region world weather inc senior agricultural meteorologist drew learner says is not anticipating any major rain events in july and august for the region but he is expecting a ridge of high pressure to be present in much of the summer in the front range area of the rocky mountains. Here's why that matters but we were hoping that maybe there would be some reason for the ridge. The shift a little bit farther to the east and opened up the opportunity for some rain to occur on the back side of the ridge but at the moment there's not a lot of support for moving the ridge very substantially so in the best or worst case scenario. I suppose The ridge axes might run from west texas into the western part of north dakota and up into the scotch one but that would not be any help any more helpful to us because of the fact that we'd be more under the rich rather than in front of it at least being in front of the ridge we'd have some once in a while cooler air masses sneak in through according to the latest drought monitor near the ninety percent of the spring week. Crop is in drought forty. One percent of corn and thirty six percent of soybeans nationwide are also dealing extremely dry conditions near the forty percent of the cattle herd is in drought situation and growing conditions have been hot and dry this season which is causing concern in the wheat crop university of minnesota extension. Small green specialists yokum weirs. Ma says the main concern during the reproductive phase is water usage by the spring. We'd water usage goes up almost exponentially as you get into greenville as plans. Get bigger We'd at the five leave states. For instance only uses of maybe even at ninety degree airtime temperatures probably only about fifteen hundreds of precip per day But at time you get to greenville. That nearly doubles these temperatures so we need rain. So keep your fingers and toes all crossed. That would be the greatest thing we can get. This hot in dry weather has left us mark on the spring week. Crop in the oneida. South dakota area here's y. Grain cooperation general manager. Tim lukens spring wheat.

I last week and he had his fields released their early meaning of calves is one management decision that can help reduce pressure on native pastures and extend ford supplies for cows. That's why ndsu extension be specialists. Zack carlson this is one option. Cattle producers can consider with the ongoing drought conditions. Early weaning is a great tool in order to manage the body condition particularly when we're talking about those first calf heifers and and those Females still have growth requirements associated. But also the on the other side of it we have the opportunity to reduce our grazing pressure by early weaning. And that's been a look good weather this week in agriculture on the red river.

Country Morning presented by CHS Ag Services
"This is the kenzi dairy. And i'm a sales groundless egg services and larimore north dakota. We're pleased to bring you this. Updates and the rhetoric farm network see it just services providing solutions for your success. Good morning tuesday. Farm news on the red river farm network. I'm randy conan will also hear reports from kierra heart and make an overby well timely rains across much of the midwest lead to a stabilization too much of the us corn crop according to usda meteorologist. Brad rigby sixty five percent of the nation's corn is in good to excellent condition. We did see a one point increase in the very poor poor ratings nine percent versus eight percent last week. For example in north dakota where very little rain fell thirty two percent of the corn rated very poor poor last week. That number was twenty. Seven percents spring wheat though dropped another. Five percentage points to just eleven percent good dachshund sixty three percent of that spring wheat now rated poor to very poor. That is an increase of eight percent from last week. Incredible just eleven percent of the crop rate a good to excellent and we see sixty three percent. Almost two-thirds rated very poor poor washington state eighty eight percents of the spring wheat. Rated very poor poor also coming in over. Fifty percents are most of the other production. States including south dakota north dakota in montana at sixty nine percent very quarter poor corn and soybean crops doing okay in the us spring wheat continuing to struggle to reform network farm broadcaster care heart has more one third of the us. Corn crop improved in the last week with overall corn conditions rated sixty five percent. Good excellent stone x. group chief commodities economist. Arslan sugerman says that's significant. I will went up a couple of points from sixty six percent. Good excellent to sixty eight percent good excellent. Because of the rains they had last week. they've been very dry. We saw illinois five points because they started to dry out a little bit. Otherwise we saw. North dakota continued to see decrease in corn ratings so South dakota even with some showers that they had those showers didn't get everyone in warrant heavy enough for everyone and so they took another point off twenty nine and thirty percent respectively for those two states and minnesota holding even at forty two percent. Good to excellent. that's still not very good. Human says the good corn ratings in the eastern corn belt are enough to offset the dryness in the north in the last week soybean conditions improved slightly. We did see a one point improvement for south dakota where they had some rains getting some good rains in iowa but allowing it to finally start drying out in illinois two-thirds of the us spring wheat crop is rated poor to very poor continuing to decline from the previous week. Minnesota's crop took a big drop this week. in its in its ratings And so it's no longer the best looking crop. That's in the big state of idaho. If i can say that sarcastically. And that's not very good either and so we're really hurting with the spring week crop with about two thirds of the crop now rated port a very poor and if you go north of the border into canada. It's not much better. Peterman says the question is now. Where do the crops go from here. The widespread heat will be challenging those crops this week and it could possibly cause further decline in next week's crop. Progress report reporting agriculture's business. I'm keira heart for the red river farm network and the extremely variable spring wheat conditions. Are the story in the dakotas this year. North dakota wheat commission market development and research manager. Eric olson says the hot dry and windy conditions are dominating the growing season. Obviously we've seen yield potential reduced producers have been making choices about whether to abandon fields depending on yield potential in other issue this year just extremely variable conditions and this has made assessing the crop as a whole very very difficult we even have producers on the same farm have very different outcomes further wheat based on when it was planted and if and when they got rate is heat that we've had throughout most of the summer push crop development ahead. A normal of course affected yield but also just just pushed. The progress ahead of average harvest will start soon incur- in southern north dakota. There's talk that there could be some starting this week. Already when read harvest is catching up with its normal. Pay seventy three percent of the winter. We'd harmless complete as of july eighteenth. One percentage point behind the average. That's an increase of fourteen percent from the previous week. Ninety six percent of the kansas crop is done colorado at sixty one percent. Thirty three percent of south dakota's winner. We'd has been harvested in. Montana is at ten percent harvested. You're listening to the red river farm network tuesday farm news on the red river farm network showers and thunderstorms moved across the region yesterday and once again last night why variety of rainfall total some receiving just a trace amounts or nothing others Have over an inch in the rain gauge here. This morning adams north dakota ninety five hundred cavalier at forty eight hundred just three. Tenths in grand forks hillsborough reporting an inch and a quarter saving at an inch in two tenths are inch and two hundred rather Just six tenths at saint. Thomas webster north dakota reporting an inch and a half in the range gear engage. This morning northeast. North dakota caught rains yesterday. Johnstown bean company general manager dylan carly says the near one inch terrain near johnstown is good for the dry edible beans. A lot of the other crops are already at a stage where the small grains are pretty much done and finished out. the corn is tasked sling. It will go a long ways there but edible beans and sugar beets are really gonna shine. They've been heat-stressed and water stressed kinda throughout the year so the plants are smaller than normal but overall we still have a decent decent stand out there. There's nothing that's gonna make a great yield or anything because the pro plant structure is just a little too small to hang very many pods on there. But at least now with this little shot terrain they should be able to continue to try and put on the first set of beans. At least carly's says now is a crucial time for the dry bean crop they're just into flowering stage and basically that's where they're going to start setting their pods. So if you don't get water during flowering and pod fill which would go continuing into august. They just won't hang onto them at all they'll kind of slough offsets pods so. This was really critical in this week. Everybody had kind of been looking at their ten day forecasts. Seeing ninety five degrees with no rain in the forecast this was pretty critical to hang onto them where we would have seen them go backwards very quickly. The ndsu carrington research extension center hosting their annual field day today. Red over farm network broadcaster. Megan overby has more whether you have livestock crops or want to learn more about versus agriculture. There is something for everybody yet. They caring soon of research extension center field day.

See the deal is free of cost and all are welcome to attend followed. The red river farm network on social media for updates from the day's events reporting agriculture's business. I'm making overby agresource company. President and bossy said yesterday's commodity markets were heavily impacted by a risk off mentality in the macro markets in a lot of these big funds. They look at risk holistically. So if you're losing money in stocks if you're losing money in crude oil or other commodities you pare back in other places and that was the theme in thesis of the day which is getting smaller. And then we'll see what weather and crop conditions in the weeks to come and bosses. Weather continues to support the grains overriding the macro concerns especially in the wheat market. That concern that the canadian dryness is one for the record books along with that. We had a freeze down in portions of brazil para rio grande disol- santana redid that really nip their crop. It was just in that late booed early head. Stage and concerns are high that maybe some of that we crop got nips and we had our friends in kazakhstan which put a moratorium on grain exports limiting wheat but also banning feed grain and so those kind of combined if you will get the weed market a bullish profile here today. You're listening to the red river farm network good morning. Welcome to inside agriculture on the red river fire farm network supply chain issues continue in the northern plains c. Hsi services director of product development brian. He'll is encouraging farmers to think ahead about what you're going to need for next year. We're placing orders for products. Now that we would have placed three or four months from now we have folks on the manufacturing side A lot of girls will think about the actual brand names from a raw material standpoint of some of the products that i mentioned earlier. And there's a lot more. We're placing order for propylene. Glycol for some of our products now that we would have had readily accessible to ten months from now i mean we. This is unprecedented. What we're dealing with right now And if from a standpoint i would recommend the same just talk with your supplier. Make sure that they feel comfortable with their supply and that they'll be able to have a what it is that you absolutely. No you're going to need and this year has been the perfect storm for supply chain backups. We had an ice storm in texas where they're not set up to handle it on an ice storm and a lot of the companies that manufacture some of the basic raw materials. That are the backbone of a number of different products that in the marketplace whether they be fertilizers or pesticides Simple things like propylene glycol. Simple things like citric acid those raw materials. All of a sudden became very scarce because of the production disruption and then also because we had a supply disruption with the pandemic. we had ports that were having staffing issues whether it be over in europe or whether it be at the united states we started to get a disruption in the barge channel zack.

Museum and larry meadows For a few years through my good friend. bill ambrose who Was up here doing research on the railroad and got to know larry and Become very Impressed with his incredible encyclopedic knowledge of history and also with his Real interest in fervor. I would call it for Finding petroglyphs sites throughout Several counties in this area identifying them Cataloging them and making efforts to protect them from vandals and theft and You know. I just really feel like this is a great place and a lot of the people up here. associated with the museum Larry i guess i would like to ask Tell me a little bit about the history of how the museum began and The reasons for what began. Well thank you. Mr debris name nineteen mid sixties Group of us would local. We just decided got interested in historical. Things are so much history in the area and you know we need to start checking into this insert preserving it so it seemed like we all kind of had the same common interests and of course the years we went to one another and as one gets a little bit boring we changed something else and ours always end up being trying to capitalize on to reach rich local history of this area. I'd like compared to other areas. We've been blessed with having so many things to work on. of course. The red river gorge being nearby and all through the years prior to say nineteen. Sixty five is really really got cranking down on that we need. We need to stay together. And maybe one of these as we can have a museum even even though it's never been professional professionally paid or sponsored by the government. Nevertheless we decided this would be a worthy trip. And we have okay. The museum itself is located in historic building Tell me a little bit about the building. The building that were that were in put. Our focus Maybe not into first days we. We only rented the upstairs to start off with and we. We did that in late. One thousand nine hundred sixty five and then from there. We weren't permanent for a while. And i'll i'll say the kentucky heritage council that they they were the ones that influenced us to stay with the architect of one of the most seal standing historic buildings in the whole county and that was the old clay city national bank building and of course that building we we know now was built in eighteen. Eighty nine became a bank in january of eighteen ninety and served as bank an institution for fifty four years in the nineteen forty four it was liquidated that that was a couple years after the train went out clay city and and everything sort of all parts far business. Yeah let me ask you this question. You all Took possession of the building. You own that building now we do. Now yes okay. Tell me about the collection. You got so many interesting things in there but it seems to follow kind of a pattern or theme if you will talk about that a little bit. Well we're we're things. Of course it is being most interested in local history however people do bring things in that have some kind of maybe indirect connection and that's central. They weren't donate that we accept notifying. We do if someone wants to. Just loan us talk. We don't. we don't like provisions on them that they have to donate because it's in their right and we will give that back. There's people don't ask for it back but when they do. we're always willing. We never made any controversy about returning that even if it's a descendant of the person who had but it has to have some historical significance for you. Put it into a museum. Yes yes we which we do okay. Well some kind of historical significance of what would your would you add to that well A few of the collections that we do have that Our special significance the Millstone collection we have one of the most a complete collections. I guess in the eastern united states The local locally there was a quarry that milled the stone so that's a count touches on the historical significance The cooper shop. I'm a woodworker. And so i'm particularly interested in that We have demonstrations out there and it's interesting to see let's a barrel maker shop. In other words this was actually Wagon makers carriage wagon wheel. Mike ca- yeah. We'll ride shop. I guess what's called. Hilary ye- yeah and So that's another one that collections Inside its Various and sundry no no particular theme but Like larry said Does have to have Historical significance Some of the things that we're actually in a part of the renovation right now and repair and it's interesting finding things from eighteen nineties that You don't have a clue what they are trying to identify. Have you ever had somebody to show up with something. You just completely had no idea what it was all the time about that if you would well One of the things that we do of course you. there's you can. I was google anything and and probably get a lead. Thank goodness. I don't know what we did before google but sometimes You just have to check around and and Old-timers us we are the best source Just out So-and-so knows about the issue so and so had that looks something like that so Usually that's a good way to reference and get an Starting anyway talk a little bit about the different companies that were in here. Say a hundred years ago hundred fifty years ago. The timber companies the coal any interesting personalities or people of that nature whether the Very important early industries. That was actually water. Power canal was dug representative. Our our president facility went right through our ground right by bank building and it was the most proper names red river. Ironworks works enforce. Our water paired. At when i put in work or talk about eighteen. Four this has altered river the water off the road for red river. And i it was run by a water fire canal and all dish machinery. They've just just really within stone's throw of our main centerpiece. The bank building and it was a massive on works. it was known far and wide. Red river arm works and four and no electricity at all. It was everything was running out of water. Pull the off the water power. Yes this receiving even before. You could get esteems locally. We're talking about very early eighteen hundreds. Yeah so They i they had to go to a water source. That's reason they. They picked our site because red river make such a big meander almost meets it. Saf coming back around play city place to build a water hard on works to do Run a blast furnace. We had the second blast furnace in the state and kentucky. Good and then of course with c. waterford was there. It was it a big stone thing like at fitchburg a smaller but the same type principal and the same type of sandstone structure. Yes wow and and with that. Because he put a water powered gristmill and of course One of our special treats this past year has been the people that had the millstone were made locally after now. It's geico's motorcycle rules of the road before you ride. Make sure your mirror are clean and adjusted properly. And if you're going on a group ride make sure the leap biker knows with going at quick question where are you taking us. Oh i have no idea what a model leader. Because i was a fall Do the red helmet. Where is he and the rule to saving on motorcycle. Insurances in fifteen minutes geico could save you fifteen percent or more conglomerate also nearby within three miles of our museum building the red riverstone corey knob and the red river. Millstone quarry was famous. It was it was sought after in the late. Seventeen hundreds of by the early settlers and a lot of these stones are actually man. It's one of our prime collections. Like lovie said millstone. We've got so much talk about the kind of stone that has to come out of the ground to be a millstone. it's kind of aggregate canton aggregate and it's a conglomerate and it has courts pebbles and has obviously a really good civic unoccupied in and also lime cementing meeting material to Make very compact and and aids real good so it can grind corn into cornmeal right in our our local millstones here. it's Talks to the museum. That were corey. They're they're. They're not so good for granted wheat into flare those usually come out of france and any exporting over here brought back alison. Sheila wants a meal. Local meal got establish. What's local conglomerate Then they will do a later. They'd add the other here telling me that some of those millstones up there that you've got were actually in france that we have some of the segmented. Frank flynn yup. A tab would be that would be brought over and you're right as a balanced stone on a ship and that was all the united states they. They have the best material in the world. Well bill was telling me that all the streets in liverpool england are made out of balance. Don't yeah that's what he told me. That's great i it's interesting. Let me ask you this question of indians in the area. Do you have records of native american settlement historic native american not not prehistoric. We're going to get to that. And we talk about the archaeology but historic native american settlement at all or is there any time that euro americans entered the senior then they As far as permanent settlements they had been abandoned or even know a lot of the testimonies do verify and prove beyond any doubt that over many bands of native american indigenous people still around and of course it would not been wise and started cylinder land and basically taking it from them for them to have a permanent settlement. Although at in fields is given petillo was a permanent settled in the mid. Seventy is that on low begrudge curry kover between lebron and upper hired great. Okay sit right above Upper harris creek at a place and that was the man that came here for rambo. The did the one man play talking about. That is github. He he was he was reenacting. The turkey peace chief. yes and And the village is given a diga That that's now others who golf corner indian fields yeah county and it was a shawnee village. Basically golf's corner. That's an old. Golf is an old name. Very over. Mr gov. A he was a hundred with daniel. Okay gosh the history. Just i get chills thinking about it You go you mentioned lubbock grid And I don't know if you've been supposedly daniel boone named that was From gullivers travel reading gulliver's travels came out there and of course pilot knob where he first Bluegrass in the large indian villager. Talk is in the county here And you can see seven counties from that beautiful hike. It is maintained by the nature. Conservancy yeah and we got one over in madison county Pilot knob there and Station camp creek. Jackson county and estelle Supposedly daniel boone spent a winter down in there. Which but that's getting off the subject. Let's go back to The you can't you really can't talk about pow canny without a wider discussion of central and eastern kentucky and this is a gateway area from the blue grass into the mountains. And i'm sure that that is noted and understood in in the way you've done. The museum is we feel like it is and a lot of our collections hinges on that gateway exhibition to stop there. They haven't got up into the gorge. Natural ridge jerry it. Hopefully we can enlighten him on what they will see when they get a little further east and southeast and also see a lot of relics that were be representative of the history that they will be in there right. The trade so much of the trade came out of the mountains like timber and coal. For instance you had the railroad that came through and it would go down into the bluegrass and to the kentucky river maybe at frankfurter somewhere near there and and i guess onto the ohio is one of the things that that we have in our depot which come out of slade it was rotten down and it had been given to us a few years earlier move finally got move down and restore it in depot which it's all got trained a trained to train depot. Yes and we're slade. Now is really become known as a center point of getting off the parkway there and stuff for the rock climbing and things right and the railroad They they really kept lives and eighteen nineties when it entered the netra bridge and torn areas is on tour and hotels but way had really hotel. They had a big night for just unprecedent post. There's a story that they had a large basket and they would have Opera and or preaching or whatever and they were lord the speaker down in that basket to entertain the crowd below on the platform. He was done. Yeah that's the big dome they're at torn and so it was a this is a gateway area For a lot of these things that went on farther up the river if you will farther up the trail in the mountains and Elizabeth what did you think about all this year. The historian in the crowd. I'm just reading the board today and minded my own business. Is it fascinating. It is and what i think is really great is that it's probably information that a lot of our listeners have not been exposed to and they really should come into play city to the red river museum once they get their themselves. Put back together after the flood. you don't have visitors right now. I mean we're showing what's going on here it is. It's the worst rank it's ever been with the floodway. We've got eight buildings and the river was anywhere from ten inches deep to four and a half foot and six out of the i it come. It came up in it. Came up overnight firefly's flood which red river rarely does it right. Well you know what it might have temporarily affected some things that are going on but it hasn't diminished the Heartfelt will of those who are involved in the museum. That's the thing that is so important. We're gonna talk a little more about some other things that people at the museum do in the second half of the hour and their main showtime is made to the. I usually on a regular schedule. We're open the first weekend in. May through the last in october on saturday and sunday afternoons from noon to five right there.

It seems the conventional metrics of discerning value and markets has been thrown out the window. Perhaps it may help to look at interest rates which are lower than ever are lower than in my dad's time in the business and in my grandad's time interest rates can justify valuations in the stock market and lower interest rates can support higher valuation.

We are coming to you from clay city worth larry meadows overhaul and of the red river museum and catherine different ground than we usually cover. There's no column why is it. why do i do. Why do i even set myself up for this. Always got something. Don't you tom all right. Did i spell it. i didn't spill anyway. News call me anything but lay for separate. I can do that. Oh get cracked up stuff. It's okay you poke the bear. All right there's a feature of what is done by the museum which is not inside the museum walls and never will be. It's outside the museum and And i think it's maybe the most noble of the museums efforts. Although it's you know who's to say but it involves Looking at different Sites around in several counties in this area and in this county where Native peoples from several thousand years ago have inscribed typically on rocks usually not on paper different elements of artistic expression. If you will and regarding sometimes bear tracks sometimes human and in other kinds of things These are a petroglyphs record of people that lived long before we did outside of recorded history and yet here in this vicinity And there are professionals in the business that do what they do and then there's the museum that kind of does what it does and It's all volunteer. It's not professionals not paid It's people simply trying to learn and discover what they can about these Interesting people and the rocks is larry has said. The rocks talked to us We don't know much if anything about these people that live before Other than the things that they wrote on the rocks which doesn't tell us all that much But it's been a fascination. I know of larry in lovie. I'm sure you've been fascinated with it also for a number of years if something is that interesting to keep someone's attention for decade after decade. There's something to it so pick it up well One of the interesting things. You talked about the footprints in the carvings suggest the corsairs for several larrea elaborate on some of those but one of the things that i thought was particularly interesting. There's in two or three different places. There's human footprints carved out With only four toes. So i don't know if there was a four toed Carver going around back in the day. Or the maybe they had a deity that That had four toes. But i thought that was particularly interesting. Course Turkey tracks and some of those but And you talked about this being a Canada crossroads of native americans. There were several tribes at Used this as a hunting ground and a pass through. As a matter of fact the larry is told me a story about the the warriors trace. That actually went Very near where. We're sitting right now. there was a a ford crossing place. Not far up the river so a lot of the shawnee the mohawks gibb way. Several traps used this and travel dozer significantly northern tribes. They up new york. State in places right right the mohawk suspect but now the mohawks were they roamed some to the. Yeah well ahead larry. Well yes the the wars passage the different paths and we have land right even red river real clubs. That's always said to hear one of red river on the name of the five. Still go five fleet today. However the the main north-south warriors path that is referred by a lot of the early writers in early. Chronicles of of our history is as kind of a sort of compare that to out seventy five going north and south now just a very well known. Many many native americans indians et time use. It had to be known for many places that there's a lot. There's there is very interesting theories about you get in. Why was it so prominent well. It may actually banned at mass known and mammoth and other extinct mammals of that time used at first even before the american bison at the time they are people started coming in here. They didn't realize that the buffalo barely beat him here as far as migration. That was not worry wasn't in that route chiller people that we study. It's almost never leave a flow. Bison bumming gosh but Yeah it's Trails and stuff or they were well known and train reuse the trails to and it's just part of it. Yeah okay all right. I wanna ask you larry about the some of the shelters themselves without disclosing any locations or particular type of a thing that it is in general. Do you find that the shelters typically they're under overhanging rock overhang. We're places we're wherever the art was made the carvings if you will would debt also be where they lived in their home or would they go to another place to do this and then live somewhere else. Well according according to archaeological interpretation by professionals and Evocations like us as well. There's there's a there's actually you're right has double meaning on that. Sometimes there seems to be patterns that they might have been done some carvings. Here's realistically and maybe not live so much there. And that was their church church. Yeah yeah and then then in other times you have a big shelter. And it's laced with carvings and courson In more broader scheme in rock art includes two things carvings petroglyphs and also includes pictographs paintings native american paintings that are interpreted to be the real stuff. Pretty rare in kentucky they are a few. they're extremely rare in the red river gorge area although that is one of the most plentiful petroglyphs places as far as population per square mile. Pictographs is paining on the rock petroglyphs carling into the raw. Let me ask you this question. either either one of you When was that Ha moment for you as members of the museum of how much categorization and cataloging that there was to be done in this area. You must have had a moment word. Hits you like a ton of bricks like wow. We could spend our whole lives doing this. Well the big the big impact that we had by dr afraid e coy junior of louisville and his best friend thomas fuller was in may of one thousand nine hundred seventy when they first visited the red river museum. At before that we'd had some of our friends tell us about some rock art sites and we had visited him but was then and they had are restarted. A statewide research on the subject because reason was an up to was orthopedic surgeon by profession that he could not find any literature written about kentucky rocker although the headman a lot in west and southwest united states and and of course naturally in south america and parts of the world so so he he had really adopted so we just fell in with that. We wanted someone to be a leader of us. We we we like to scout. We'd like we liked to talk to people and book but just give us a reason. It was really nineteen. Seventy when the real the real light flip down and from that time on we've contentiously. Everybody comes into museum. If they're a climber some waste we start communicating with them and working with the four servers and was professional archaeologists through the many years that that issue away a humiliating so many rock-hard sites in in the state of kentucky are deal was mostly in state kentucky. We we've been a few outside state. That was so so so really. Dr coy talk fuller. Who began it this. This give us this real reason to focus on and we focused ever. Since in the book rock art. Kentucky's years resulted from this doctor coy fuller. You're one of the year one of the of it and then another fellow and so their four people that basically wrote that book and it came out what back in the eighties eighty seven or something but but to the one the one point i will make is. My name is not as writer. They i wanted to red river museum to be the name. And then the kentucky heritage council was the editor and as we got an organization got nine so so bans obvious the contact person and got to be you know with dot going tom. Four and dr schwaiger. that's of course there are deceased. They were much older than me. And that was the reason that My name's owner not not not taking any credit for me doing that kind of work writing a book of that nature. They did a great job. And i've just my name really should be red room museum. That's just wasn't so that's reason. Okay now one of the things that i wanted to know tate. If you will are bring out is The the thing that ed is the need to get some younger people involved in the efforts here. Because you know you're going to be eighty next year and There are different people In tell me are you getting some young folks In in on this effort yes we are. I'd say the last couple of years over here has been very instrumental and Getting getting more young interest and and And through different sources We we see a lot more more used to take over. Because that's going to happen anytime. That's good it's we gotta have that or we can't survive we've got to have the youth and they're they're much it seems to me. They're much more interested now than you were ten years ago right over. What would your thoughts be on that. well Of course the only problem. The younger people are. It's hard to sometimes to get them interested in there's an unnatural interest anyway but Seems like most of the older people are the ones that no Were the sites are so. It's a good blend of the two you have to have the The younger generation to pass this on. And you've got to utilize the older people to Remember where the sites are in and tell you about him and a lot of times. It's were math will so and so told me that there was one back in this holler wherever but For me the that the most interesting part the thing that really piqued my interest Was visiting a shelter. We actually our group Looked at this and cataloged and there is a A spray small shelter but it had a week column hominy holes and i was fascinated by that as a child and I think they were given that The the misnomer of Hominy ho by funkhouser and web was that right yes and a surmise that it was two grand corn but It's just fascinating to me that You see them in several places. Several states even These deep holes of two to four inches in diameter sometimes larger and they may go down this far as a two and a half three feet and So it it doesn't make sense in and we're trying to find out why why they did. Those was it to ground. Food was store food It's all just conjecture at this point is What's the feeling like when you roll up on something that maybe nobody's ever seen before other than the people who made it seven or eight thousand years ago. Well i guess you'd probably feel a lot like daniel boone. Did the first time Saw this place is your Fascinated and interested in He's got that feeling of discovery that You're the first is it's been laid upon this so And of course Along with it goes the the wonderment You know an added had this How was this done and wire sure. Okay let's the museum unless get honest. Museum sustained a little bit of damage in the flooding. Here in the last three or four weeks. And i wanna make an appeal to people to maybe get interested in this and consider donations and things of that nature. Although this isn't what this shows about it's not about trying to beg for money or that kind of thing. But i would be remiss if we didn't at least discuss the museums. Some work done and and things that have to be done to repair the flood damage. You're dealing with an older building. Sometimes there are things that began to go. Downhill that building despite its Historic charm older. Buildings have stuff that goes wrong with them. So we're dealing with some of that right now and just talk a little bit about what the scope of it is. What some of the financial needs might be well I alluded to this earlier. But seems like the more we get into it. The more we find out that needs to be done And part of it is flood damage Part of it is age of the building One of the things we found out. Just this morning is at Some of the brick on the inside wall have separated and are falling because they had supports they. They built the outside shale Very strong the inside was Post the ground and of course we've added Air conditioning and and Some modern conveniences and had to work around those some of those limitations but We have found out that we Had to replace the roof. We did that last year. There was because of the leaky roof arbor. Some drywall issues. We had to repair those and had just got ready to open up. Hopefully for this season The covid permitting of course and We had this flood now. I don't know there's river's been up in the museum. Several times and Larry mentioned earlier about a canal going. Allow canal rep said. The museum The lake the river basically makes a large ox. Bow around the town and Of course the water tries to shortcut right beside the museum and that's part of the damage We had a lot of rushing water that tremendous fourche so we had some outside damage from that Were still serving in. And we don't know the full extent but about half of the floor joyce are decayed and or Have termite infestation and we have to replace those from the floor up so if we got to. We're getting close to the end here if you wanted to help. Where would you send donations. Well you can send them to the red river museum. Clay city kentucky. And that's peel. What's that po box. Okay and descended it to that and You can also log in on the facebook page The red over museum and Information there about the ongoing efforts and you get more information the address and so forth if you wanna do that yeah. The museum is just a great organization list. The po box was what again. Five one seven five one seven and that's klay satiate target for over three one to two perfect for three one. Three one to listen Sorry we couldn't go longer. I could go two hours with y'all you're that good by the way larry is just like you said mr britannic the walking. We didn't hardly tap into thing. Well we'll have to come back again when you get it to come on the road again time it'll be next week or maybe tamara knows. Hey listen we'll be back. The next hour with our financial guys will be back in lexington to bring you the tom. Duprey show So stay tuned. We're powered by duprey financial group. We'll talk to you a minute.

Be sure to go over to our website Big Data beard, or just check out our YouTube channel as all the live streams will find their way. They're today's rates actually sponsored by our friends at Red River technology is a long-time friend of the Big Data beard. And today we're excited to have a conversation with a me Murad. He's a customer Solutions architect for the federal civilian a main welcome to the beginning of your podcast. Thanks guys. Thanks for having me. Absolutely. Well, I mean in case folks don't really know much about Red River Technologies. Would you mind just spend a moment and tell us a little bit about Red River and the values you talk to your customers. Absolutely. So, you know Red River is an IT solutions provider and really what we look to do is help Enterprises in federal agencies kind of solve some of the business challenge. Is leveraging, you know innovative solutions, right? So we're not really just reselling different products, but we're actually, you know applying engineering value on top of that to help come up with a holistic solution, right and really Drive value to our customers. Now that's perfect man. Now one of the things that we are obviously very interested in is really around data analytics & iiot. Can you talk a little bit about what Red River is kind of generally doing in that area of Technology. Absolutely. I mean there there is a lot so, you know, one of the big things we do is around the backbone for all iot products, which would be on the wireless space wage. So we have a large Wireless practice, you know that's familiar with the whole bunch of different, you know myriads of Wireless Technologies, right? It's just your traditional, you know attitude at 11. You name a b g n a c a x right doing predictive surveys virtual surveys physical on site surveys, you know, point-to-point Wireless, you know for the back hall off. Also some of the other, you know less common, but more recent protocols, you know, like like zigbee and Loren if some of the newer and upcoming Technologies, you know to exploring things and gnome. places and then helping customers, you know address their requirements around their different iot in a products and tools that they're going to leverage some of their different sensors helping them correlate data from Those sensors, and you know Aggregate and ingest it into analytics platforms like Splunk, Yeah, so when you talk about all the different applications of these these different protocols and the use of these sensors. What are you seeing especially in your space where you focus, you know within the federal space where what are you seeing as these organizations using home from an application standpoint? How do they use them? Absolutely. So, I mean it is oh man kind of really fascinating crazy at the same time and you know things that you generally wouldn't even really think about so one such a sensor that I've seen used is a CO2 sensor and so, you know with some of these newer buildings right with that are likely dead efficient certified one of the strategies that they actually Implement to conserve energy is having these CO2 sensors, right all over the building and these CO2 sensors off would calculate exactly how much of that CO2 is in each room, right and as a result of that I'd be able to identify how many people are in that room and modulate the HVAC system so that the HVAC is System is it running excessively if there isn't anyone in that room and that way to save energy so it's c o to be a better cuz I I love the concept of kind of the smart building but I'm curious like what is CO2 a better indicator than like a presence monitor I guess is that's probably more more consistent in terms of its ability to actually predict the number of people it's it depends right? So I actually got a pretty accurate with the CO2 monitors because there's a there's a formula that calculates the amount of CO2 a specific or one person would output and then you could you know use that to calculate exactly how many people are in that room, right? And then of course, there's a fluctuation based on, you know, obviously the size and age of the person would you know, very the amount of oxygen they're consuming with the presence monitoring. It can be a little different especially if you look at things like, you know with Bluetooth low-energy and you know, the Fidelity that provides a lot of times you don't get you know as much accuracy as to where that person's name. It it right. So they don't have that specific accuracy, unless you bring in other Technologies like infrared and then with infrared you can get down to like the foot of where someone is located where otherwise you're going to a couple of meters long and you know, there are some challenges there if they're you know felon or something dies, there's no sense or anything that would then emit, you know their location that can then be picked up by the wireless network. Whereas with CO2 the sense that you know, is it really traveling it's a static in that room, but it's collecting the amount of you know, or the lack of oxygen there. Yeah. Are you saying like a coalescence? We're more and more, you know vendors that creepy the hardware that goes into these offices start to build like those kinds of capabilities into their products. Like as you know, you think about smart buildings like okay. Let's see like everybody's got a wireless access point the back in right of every room. Are you are are people starting to get smart enough to like shook a build in and create like Deployable hubs that that kind of build this and make it easier for deployment. So I'm not seeing two month. Hubs, right and are quite a few, you know vendors that come up with the sensors themselves. So I'm not going to say like, I don't really don't think they're putting them into the game itself. And a lot of the strategies now have been let's get rid of the Hub right and have the sensor communicate to a cloud platform or something else. Right? So, you know, they have these nice, you know, LED smart light bulbs, right and the challenge a lot of people had was that not only were these Labs expensive but that you needed a hub right to then communicate control with light bulbs. And so what a lot of vendors are doing now is saying we'll get going to get rid of the Hub and the light bulbs going to communicate to our cloud and now the customer can just you know, control the light bulb through the cloud and that's to reduce the cost to the customer and make it convenient man. I tell you what the hubs what are the annoying thing? That is I don't know if you got if you're into the smart home thing, but I had one of those wink hubs and they, you know part of the reason I bought it was off. Like, oh we'll never charge you a fee like you bought this Hub. And now it's yours forever. It's a piece of hardware and then two years later. They're like, oh we're going broke. So we need to charge everybody $10 a month for their Hub to work. So I am a big fan of getting rid of home. Well, I'm going to be contrary there because as someone who is a very smart home afishinado. If you start going to the cloud now your reliant on them and depending on them for the future of the sustainability of those products though, right? So I think it's a little bit of a you're both so hard personally. I'm looking at my Hubs on hubs right now where I have like three or four hubs for all my different products. So I guess I'm not one talk same time. I think it's a balance of both but obviously in the Enterprise space, it's a little bit more reliable on on the cloud and iCloud technology versus consumer, but I doubt it's it's an interesting trend of you know, where how sensors can communicate and send data to a centralized platform. So you can also correlate across different sets of different products as well. Yep. It's it's dude. It's the edge Computing Made Real right? It's we're shrinking computer. We're putting in a smart devices. Like you said, I mean and light bulbs and everything else and one of the things that happens when you create lots of choices and you're starting to measure, you know, all these different things that we never thought about measuring before but now they have their distinct value in them. You create a massive amount of data and I'm curious to hear from you know from Red River subjective how organizations dealing with this, you know, this Deluge of data from sensors that really are just they're creating a new type of data that really didn't exist in the Enterprise previously. Absolutely. I mean and it's funny you guys mentioned the Smart Homes cuz I'm actually looking to buy a house and I've been like looking at all the different Smart Home Products left and right and so I definitely understand, you know, you know the challenge with consuming all that data, right? Cuz if your frigerator your microwave or Coffeemaker your light bulbs and maybe even your bathroom all communicating all these, you know capabilities and features all at once right? I'm going to run out of storage but you know, there are a couple of different things that you know, Red River in the team of the kind of explored. Some of that is is pruning some of those data's month, you know, others are kind of the summaries indexes that you see in Splunk, right? So, I mean a lot of times if you have a consistent setting or you know reading on a sensor for a period of time, but it's fairer you could summarize that right and say well throughout this whole period of time this was just one value. So now we don't have to have multiple readings at that same value. We can you know, kind of reduce that, you know cost off. Storage there and then there's also the compression techniques, right so implementing, you know the compression which I think is default on Splunk indexers from that mistake and and they you know, sometimes it depending on the data source that could be extraneous information that you know isn't necessarily relevant to the application that you're looking for for the good the answers out of the iot appliances off in prune those specific data fields off and just kind of keep what's necessary. So you mentioned spunk a couple of times and I'm curious from your point of view. How is Red River partnering with Splunk to deliver value to your customers both for you know iot use cases, but all these cases where the worst blinking and stated everything platform really, you know play oh man, so glad you asked cuz I'm actually involved in a quite a few of those projects and there's a lot, you know, we've been working with Splunk on the return to work initiative a couple of other initiatives and Splunk is a core component of some of our strong. Just Solutions, right? So especially you know, when you talk about the iot space right security is definitely a big concern. I was actually just listening to a song podcast where somebody was talking about a vulnerability that a security researcher had found where they could reverse-engineer the firmware of a coffee maker and push that you know updated or or basically, you know broke firmware to that coffee maker without any authentication and take over that coffee maker and now you have a coffee maker that spying on you, right? So that's definitely a major threat landscape. You know, when you look at all these iot appliances is, you know Hub controlled, I you know Cloud controlled, you know, a lot of times this the security concerns aren't taken into consideration around those iot appliances. And so the Red River came up with the device isolation architecture and our device isolation architecture really helps to reduce that threaten wage. So some of the things we do, you know is Implement Technologies like network access control and you know flow and Analysis vulnerability analysis. And we take all of that data feed it into Splunk, you know, correlate it in leverage tools like Enterprise security, you know, so that if there are incidents or suspicious activity, right we can then correlate, you know investigate with it leveraging Enterprise security and then also incorporating things like Phantom to automate some of those remediation tasks, right or at least automate some of the investigation steps. Yeah, absolutely. And you want things you talked about there that I want to kind of peel back a little bit is you know this idea that you know, when we have massive amounts of streams of data, obviously, you need a platform, you know back to find Value from it. So you talked about Splunk as a platform that red river is partnering with to deliver value from customers, but one of the things that you know s cough is just you know a few days away from now, you know, I'm getting buzzed, you know for sure a lot of talk around there's data stream processor. People are pretty excited about that product within Splunk. Are you seeing that being adopted to help deal with like this idea that there's lots of disparate sort of data sources in sensors and in otherwise that it makes sense to kind of do some initial pruning tuning of the data before you send it into Splunk indexes. Absolutely cuz I mean, there are a myriad of fields when you break down what data you're iot appliances are sending or mere to fields that may not be relevant, right? And you really don't need to consume those fields, right? So it used to be you go on a forward or you know, you configure your pops and then just, you know, and then from there you could prune the date of that way, but when you may have all those different little iot appliances sending that in right and your Ford or may not be able to handle that, you know, DSP definitely helps offload a lot of that stress and makes it easier for that data ingestion absolute now, once you've got the data in right it's it's one thing I O T is this concept of you know, there's lots of sources of data their sensors, you know, but you want to create create value and when the data sets get really really large meaning large numbers of sources, you know, lots of granularity of data, it's hard for humans to oftentimes deal with that sort of level of data and that's where AI steps in so I'm curious what you're seeing from a faith perspective in working in the federal space partnering to deliver value a small. How are you starting to see i o t and may I start to coalesce for real value? Yeah so dead. It's actually interesting. So kind of going back to some of our strategic Solutions be leveraged or we actually built a solution around network access control and mapping, you know, a cruise control for a lot of different things. And so what we've done is taken the access a log X 4 when that device was accessing a network right and fed it into the machine learning tool kit and you know just as a proof-of-concept really initially and then it kind of grew into something really cool. But we we Leverage The Machine learning tool kit to do anomaly detection and basically created wage standard, you know access pattern leveraging standard deviation to identify will win with somebody access the network, right? What's the range or. That they normally are within and if they fall outside of that, you know, it could be an anomaly something interesting could be happening. We should probably investigate right so and that was just kind of the first for a you know, looking into a whole bunch of different wage. Techniques and capabilities and and machine learning can get you know really deep into the math. So something I need to personally work on on getting better at don't we? All right. I mean I got no we have to talk one and that's about it. So, you know when when they get deeper into it, you know, you're talking about like Bernoulli and statistics right and you know clubs Theory and K means and you know things that go away pretty basic basically in math. It's real fun. Yeah, right, but that's the idea of those that like things like machine learning tool kit like the whole purpose there is that it's like, you know part of the challenge that has existed for data science to be really successful in the Enterprise has been around. Oh great. I've got data but I don't know how to get it into a format that I could then go off apply right in the data wrangling process to apply some clustering algorithm to it and I think the argument for machine learning tool kit and flunk is that hey the data is already in and index. That's a known good format wage. That you can apply it kind of out-of-the-box very simply for a variety of use cases, whether it's it or security like you've talked about when you think about, you know, kind of the future right we're going in to cough here in a few weeks were probably going to learn some things and we'll talk about the second. But when you think about what's next for your partnership, you talked about the job built some great solutions that bring value around iot security and I I with Splunk said next. What are you thinking about? What's what's the vision for how Rivers going to help customers in the future? Oh, man, so honestly, it's kind of iterating on you know, some of our existing strategic Solutions we have and kind of Taken get to the next level, right? So incorporating additional algorithms as birth machine learning tool kit to provide, you know more insights into what we have today. So that's something that I'm personally exploring myself and like you mentioned you mentioned B's in statistics, right? So often that kind of provides a confidence Factor, so it's something that I need to study but being able to provide a higher level of confidence. So if I already know that, you know, there's anomalous activity going on. Well, could I Leverage The Phantom to automate some of the investigation for me and then provide additional details back in the Splunk and back into my machine learning, you know toolkit algorithm to then increase confidence of whether or not it's a false positive or is this really, you know, some malicious behavior and you know, we need to alert somebody and take some actions against it. Yeah, so conf is just a mere days away and I don't know about you, but I'm pretty pretty excited. You know, what song do you most excited about 4, this year? And obviously it is in a virtual setting but you know, what, do you what do you going to be attending? What are your thoughts on? What are you looking forward to hearing? So probably every fence I'm off and they have I'm going to jump into it. I've been taking the Phantom administrator classes. And so I knocked out the first two I still got one more left and it's just it's an interesting project. You know, it's it's really cool and and while people are saying, you know, it's part of the sore right secured orchestration automation remediation, but there's so many more applications to it. You'll take it and apply it to the itu's cases right and being in, you know Network admin traditionally right that that's kind of the space. I understand the most right see people ization, you know, storage live birth. And you know Network utilization and honestly the capabilities it has around, you know, Phantom and calling different apis and being able to automate tasks and easily be applied to you know, the network admins and system admins of the world and looking forward to seeing what slump has in store for us there. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean phantom for those that don't know it's like you said it's a part of the originally thought of as a sort of right so that you can you know, automate the response to kind of known activities which by the way is not a New Concept in security or it right we've been doing automation for years. I mean, they might have heard a Cron job. Like we know what automation is right. It's it's automated something but really it's the scale and applying that intelligent sort of machine learning algorithm to I understand what's happening is really what I think is so unique and then the ability to scale those those playbooks across and I'm curious you talked about it, you know as a security perspective from an IT perspective. It's one of those are dead. Where it's just sort of it's just starting sort of starting to get interest. Are you hearing interest from from the operators in the in the industry around? You know, I T and SRE kind of folks that Phantoms something they're interested as well. Absolutely. Right? Cuz I mean a lot of times, you know, people people kind of Overlook the the system admins, right and the network of the world to kind of low birth totem pole. So they don't get as much love unfortunately or budget. Deb's where all the cool stuff happen to have a data scientist get all of these days. Yeah, basically and I think that's what we're kind of on the data side or at home link to that. But you know, they have they have challenges with having the ability to scale on a lot of tasks, right especially if you look at like help desk guys write her like all right have a ticket come in. It's the same problem happens every night is a specific process. It goes through this and I spend their time going in there restarting that process or rebooting that specific server and our meeting something that you know, nobody fix the issue. Problem and so that their resolution is a workaround that work around is done manually, right? You could have easily taken that work around applied it into a phantom and then have Phantom do that work for you. Right? And so the idea there is you're removing the low-level tasks so that you could focus your human resources on more complex issues. Yeah, absolutely. Well, I mean, it's been awesome to catch up with you to talk about what red rivers doing in the federal space helping organizations adopt iot best practices using AI to identify extract value from the data and then really looking at that platform from Splunk and Phantom to automate a response to to help in from security posture, but also from an operations perspective. So definitely is a great to talk with you and I encourage the folks who are listening if you haven't signed up for Splunk, yet this year it is free. You can get a copy. Smoke.com and register and probably attend some sessions. That means going to be so make sure you do that. But I mean before we let you go we want to have a little fun and we've got a section. We like to call Rapid Fire. We've learned a lot about our guest today, but now it's time we get a bit more personal the segment. We like to call Rapid Fire. All right. So let's get into rapid fire. First question what has been the most productive thing you've done during covid-19. Aside from cleaning my room. I built a brand new computer. Oh, that's nice the room part new computers on you get your gaming or something. Oh, yeah little bit above right. So gaming then trying to get into like the whole deep learning thing. So, you know got the latest and greatest AMD CPU. It's like 12 CPU cores, which you think this thing's practically a server. Yeah, but I got all the brake lights to you know, so you have to check it out RGB so fun to send you guys, you know video of what it looks like, you know, pretty cool. But it on the Twitter. Yeah, I think we coordinate both looking at building computers over the last couple of days. It's we're doing a lot more editing and video processing. So that's very interesting. All right. So next question. What book would you recommend me to our listeners? Oh, okay. So there's a couple of books that I've read recently one is great by choice, right? And so it's not really about data scientist more about business, but it definitely opens your eyes to different business philosophies. And there's actually there's a really good take away from it. Right and one of which is fire bullets not cannons, right? And so, you know from there basically they're saying look, you know try something small start on a small scale before you invest heavily into it, right and analogy they provide is you know, you have two boats, right? Each one has one Cannonball but multiple muskets right? And so to get the angle of what you need to be able to hit the opponent, right you fire the musket and tune the angle right? Cuz the musket takes a lot less energy and effort and then once you got that angle correctly, then you go ahead and choose the Cannonball. So definitely an interesting fire. Yeah fire for effect. I think is what they call it, right? Cool. Okay. So what is your favorite piece of technology right now? Oh, well, I just got the new Samsung Note s20 Ultra off. The camera on that thing is phenomenal. I mean real amount of acne. I could pick up on people's faces when I zoom in it's it's it's insane, you know, but the screen is great. I say there's an 8K screen the audio quality on the mic is so good that it picks up people I have on speaker and the complain about feedback so but like it it's noticeably different like I've taken that phone and I taking my mom's Note 8 and the taken the same picture right and zoomed in all the way and you could really do see the difference in color and contrast in detail. Interactive, are there any shows that you're binging on right now? So actually just knocked out all the VIN shows but there was one on Netflix. I want to say it was called occupied or something. It was really interesting. It's about you know, Norway and how Norway God invaded by the Russians because of an energy conflict and kind of all that the geopolitics there. It's kind of cool in response to check that out and once travel opens back up again, and you can travel freely. Where is the first place you're going to be going to Canada? All right convenient. I could drive there and 7 hours. I've been trying to go, you know, it's the promised land but unfortunately The Border's been closed, you know, do tubes everything going on and off checking every month and it's like we're extending the closure extending the closure. So plus, you know, the dollar is stronger there. Right? So your money goes a little farther. So think about it as a discount vacation home. All right, I like that. I like that and then lastly work in our audience find you on social media. Yeah. So LinkedIn is probably the best place to find me and I'll have to pull up and see what my LinkedIn URL is I could probably share with you guys will drop it in the show now. It's all good. Well very good. Well, I mean it has been super fun to talk with you about Red River your partnership with Splunk and how you're delivering value to Federal customers around Chicago IL T and security make sure everybody again.

"This is prayer cloth. And i must sales a ground c. h. s. services in greenbush minnesota. We're pleased to bring you this update from the river farm network see services providing solutions for your success. Good morning farm news on the red river farm network. I'm don wick with randy koon. We'll have updates from keira heart and making overby. Usda forecast new crap corn production at fifteen billion bushels on eighty five point one million acres and assumes a yield of one hundred seventy six point. Three bushels spreaker. So i mean. Production is pegged at four point. Three seven billion bushels on eighty four point six million acres with an average yield of fifty point six bushels per acre new crop corn ending stocks are estimated at one point four billion bushels new crop soybean ending stocks are estimated at one hundred eighty. Five million bushels. Us grain supplies still a story for the grain markets following friday's usda report. Red river farm network broadcast to care. Heart has more india's. You crops marketing economist. Frank olson is not surprised with the overall numbers in the. Usda's september was d- report. There were a few little surprises including the significant increases in north dakota's corn and soybean acres big picture. According to the usda the yield potential in the eastern corn belt will be enough to offset the yield reductions seen in the western corn. Belt's gonna have the second largest corn crop on record As long as heels. Hold up we're gonna have plenty of corn around. And and basically the same story was soybeans. Western corn belt is is drier than normal. We know that we're gonna have some some heal damage and yields are not going to be what all farmers are hoping for but you get to the eastern corn belt. You know they're going to have a fantastic year. We still don't know the final yield for the us corn and soybean crops that means the grey markets will still be focused on the supply story at least for a little while right now as we plan for for harvest. A you know. It's it's all about making sure you've got room for the grain. That's going to be coming in. I know that there's probably some farmers that are kinda got their fingers crossed to see if they're to be able to meet the expectations for what they had foiled contracting most farmers. I've talked to did not get super aggressive in for contracting but we did have some early opportunities to get some some bitter prices. It would not be surprised that we see a little bit of a drift lower. The weather forecast looking pretty favorable for most of the corn belt No major surprises shocks out there. So i again. I would not be surprised that we see some some slow drifting lower as we move into harvest. Join the red river from network this week at the big iron farm. Show be sure to tune in on the your live event youtube page or come see us at the grounds tuesday through thursday reporting agriculture's business. I'm keira heart for the red river farm network. Some traders are questioning the harvested acres for corn in that friday report agra sample north america market analyst sterling smith says the corn cut for silage is one unknown mysteries. In here about you know corn acres harvested last month. They were eighty four spot five. This month that came in eighty five spot one and that number could go back down pretty easily especially up around you and You know areas south you there. There's plenty of potential for trouble and seeing stuff not getting harvest. I'm also getting reports up in minnesota that we're losing acres and if we lose acres particularly depending on where they are in minnesota that can certainly affect overall production. Smith says exports are key. Part of. what's driving this market. It's also it's keeping funds participate and this nervousness about exports coming out of the gulf. I'm absolutely certain caused some fund liquidation. Especially you know. We've been down with corn almost every day since at hurricane showed up the reports. I'm getting from the gulf or we're gonna get this turned around here pretty quick and things are going to be back to normal and when that happens. I think the funds will have a little bit more clarity on. What's exactly moving. They may not be as afraid to step in and purchase. Usda is forecasting and average corneille. One hundred eight bushels per acre for north dakota down thirty one bushel. Some last year yields are expected to average one hundred seventy four bushels per acre in minnesota which is eight bushels per acre higher than last year. South dakota's corn yield is projected the command at one hundred thirty three bushels per acre down. Twenty nine bushels for soybeans. Usda is forecasting the average yield at twenty five bushels per acre. That's down eight and a half bushels from a year ago average yield in minnesota put at forty seven bushels per acre up. Four bushels from last year south dakota's average. So it'd be kneeled forecast at thirty eight bushels per acre down seven and a half bushels from a year ago as we speak. There's a few scattered showers in south. Eastern north dakota more widespread. Rain scene is in extreme western. North and south dakota showers and storms are expected to spread across the region today. The greatest chance of rainfall above a quarter of an inch is south and along. I ninety four in the southern red river valley says the red river farm network. Monday farm news on the red river farm network farm service agency administrator zach do show met with livestock groups in bismarck. Friday red river farm network farm broadcaster. Megan overby has more. This was the second time in two months that administrator do chanel had been in north dakota talking with farmers and ranchers about drought in the impact. Eat is leaving. Additional drought assistance has been secured for livestock producers lie at the emergency livestock. Assistance program through. Usda here's north dakota stockman's association. President jeff schaffer permanent fix to the program for Const assistance on hey transportation and we all know that matches are having to secure feet sources farther away from the ranch so this is truly beneficial and generally speaking doesn't happen this quick. So we're very appreciative. Senator and administrators act for getting us accomplished. You know they want to get the money out there as soon as they can. You know application is still in the make making but you know you re everybody that they're going to try to be very timely on the panel. It's sixty percent and it's retroactive. So you know. I think that's all great. News for north dakota ranchers schafer who farms and ranches at new rockford. Says things are looking more optimistic in his area this fall. The grass is a little bit greener and the feed wagon is finally parked near the cows. Our family but In a we've weaned the cavs. We've all through sounded so the bread cows around on on pasture all grazing and and it's a good deal and moisture situation we've been blessed with some precipitation and it's greener and it wasn't made so you know if nothing else that it helps. Everyone mentally everything looks a little better for far from the drought talking to the guys that are soil sampling. You know the top ten to fourteen inches. Look pretty good but a low fourteen inches. It's bone dry so we're a long way from getting out of this job that was sure A great break to get some precipitation purporting agriculture's business. I'm megan overby on the red river farm network. The senate returns to washington dc this week and we'll be working on that three and a half trillion dollar budget. Reconciliation plan com bestselling associates managing partner. Tom cell so. This is a dynamic process that have a razor thin majority in the senate. It's a fifty fifty. You have the vice president Having been tie-breaking vote. But you've already had one in senator joe manchin of west virginia who said i'm not gonna go there. I'm not going to go all freight on a three point five trillion dollar bill back. That are playing. I'm down the good side of that. Is that funny down on the on. The spending side also means you're right you have some down. The number of tax cuts the concept of eliminating stepped up basis has been rejected by most farm groups. House committee chair. David scott has also voiced his opposition. I'll be on the house ways and means committee as they meet to review the revenue section of that reconciliation package. That's where the tax changes could happen. National farmer council farmer cooperative. Ceo chuck conner. So there's a good chance they'll be changes to stepped up basis and the state tax in the final version of that package. Something we've we've got to watch and we've got to be prepared to fight a lot for I think it will just hard a lot of politicians to grasp the fact that you know a farmer through hair be sitting on big asset of land there but in reality that the the earning power of that that asset is not that much money you know these are clearly people of modest means even though they might be sitting on an inherited very very large asset. And we can't you know through state tax laws force the sale of that asset. I mean that's just that would destroy our family farm system in this country at the same time. Connor says the house will be considering good things for agriculture and the reconciliation package including more conservation funding. Certainly in the past several years. We've had off pro-climate Initiatives that have taken a lot of money out of farmers pockets and we didn't go forward with those. We hope these are quite the opposite and actually enhance Our climate friendliness but at the same time to perhaps even put a little extra additional resources in the farmer's pocket to do the right thing here. The biden administration is considering an investigation into china's use of trade subsidies. No final decisions have been made but it could result in new sanctions on chinese imports. The us trade representative's office been reviewing china's a chinese trade policy for the past month with plans to enforce the trade commitments made in the phase. One trade deal today is final. Setup day for the big iron farm show looked to the red river farm network building. When you're at the farm show we have market forms a lot of stuff on the schedule. Each every do join us. This is the red river farm network. Good morning welcome to inside agriculture. On the red river farm the canadian pacific and kansas city southern railways are one step closer to a deal over the weekend. Kansas city southern told the canadian national it would not go forward with their agreement. But the cnn still has five business days to make amendments to its thirty three point. Six billion dollar offer c. P. is bidding thirty one billion for kansas city southern and is already approved by the regulators to use a voting trust which has been a hurdle for cnn. South dakota corn is taking applications for new executive director interim executive director. Mike jasper says within the next month the association and council boards will likely be reviewing those candidates can have somebody on board and and through the transition process and on boarded and and knowledgeable moving forward before the end of the year. Jasper says whether or not there will be two separate leaders still needs to be determined. I think there's also a lot of discussion going on to kind of maintaining structure that they have had in the past as well too so i think the important thing is that they'll they're gonna look at what what is the best to represent. The corn farmers represent a research and promotion and and market development of of the product. And also the policy side. And and make sure that farmers are well protected in all areas for that they have active participation in discussions Concerning policy changes will from the national level the state level local level for corn producers and also that continue to look for new markets new ways to promote new ways to educate the public compared to one year ago. Us tractor sales rose ten percent in august. The articulated four wheel drive tractors segment led the way with a forty percent increase in sales combine. Sales grew by just under twenty percent. The association of equipment manufacturer says these sales reflect. The optimism now seen in agriculture. There's been a second case of anthrax confirmed north dakota's kidder county. The first case which also involves cattle was reported last month effective anthrax vaccines are available but it takes a two week for immunity to be established. We have witness in the marketplace. This morning as we speak we have minneapolis week. December down seven and a half at eight seventy one and a quarter chicago wheat for december at six eighty two and a quarter down six and of quarter hard red winter wheat. Same contract out five and a quarter. The corn six and a half lower five eleven. The quote marched down six and a quarter november. So i being six and a half lower twelve eighty the quote january twelve eighty eight and a half. That's down by six and a quarter cents. Don't forget of course the big iron farm show. It is tomorrow. Wednesday and thursday at the fairgrounds in west fargo. The red river farm network building is located in the southwestern corner of the grounds were directly across the street from where the food court is located.

"This is mackenzie dairy. And i'm a sales groundless. Egg services and larimore north dakota. We're pleased to bring you this updates and the red rhetoric farm network see it just services providing solutions for your success. Good morning farm. News on the red river flom network. I'm john wick with randy. Couldn't we'll have updates from kiro. Heart and megan overby the wheat complex continues to capture the grain traders attention red river farm network broadcaster. Kiro heart has the story. Company market analysts christie van on says the grain markets. No the spring week crop is not there in north dakota. There's been a lot of profit taking happening in the weeds when you have an outside trader coming in and looking at chicago minneapolis and kansas city. obviously minneapolis suite. Isn't that that bid that cheaper by that you're seeing That discount by and so you've seen the peak the interest in chicago and kansas city. We'd but it seems like risk off is coming out of minneapolis. Sweden same logic gotta feed the bull We know that the crops not really there the next chance to really see something happening. We'd is when we start to get actual yield numbers out of producers and we haven't had many of those what we've had so far some get zeroed outright by crop insurance but we haven't had those those yields coming out of people that are actually going to harvest their crops on says a few farmer clients in the red river valley should start harvest soon until there's yield confirmation wheat demand needs to show up basis levels really. Haven't done much and that's kind of an indicator that who cares if we have a problem right now in spring we we need the demand to show up so those are the two things to focus on a minneapolis. Weeds on says she will be watching next week. Spring wheat tour but she's also eager to learn what the crop is like in the other spring wheat growing states. What do we see for minneapolis wheat. Crop in minnesota. What do we see for minneapolis. Wheat crop in south dakota. Obviously north dakota is a whole different ballgame and then you even go out to montana and you see those situations too. So i think people wanna see those fringe areas those those places that have been able to get a timely rain to push through every once in a while and i think a big question is also going to be. What's the difference between the guy that got in easter. And then if they didn't get an easter they actually were pushed back two to three weeks after that. And so we're going to get a good idea on how the crop fair because of that reporting agriculture's business i'm kierra heart for the red river farm network. Some rain showers moving out of the area. This morning light rains being seen in an area that includes roseau and but it rains also moving east of what dina and into the brainard area. Here's a chance for thunderstorms tomorrow. Across much of north dakota and northern minnesota. The national weather service says some of those storms could be severe. According to this morning's ndsu crop pest report grasshopper numbers are increasing. The hot dry weather will quickly push insect development into the adult stage which can cause more crop damage. Trap captures of bandit sunflower. Moth increased this past week primarily in the southern half of north dakota population of potato leaf. Hoppers is rising and dry. Edible beans in eastern north dakota and north central minnesota. So i've been eighth at numbers. Continue to be low. Ndsu is fielding reports on spider mites on field edges. Those calls coming out of the west fargo and kristen areas. We control season is down for sugarbeet. Growers extension sugar-beet ground. Tom peters says farmers had done a pretty good job of controlling water him. The only thing that concerns me. I guess is we have an open canopy. Not all of our fields have rosetta close other places. They're stand challenges. So i think really. We're going to have to wait or the question until we get into august to see See if we can maintain our control but if you factor in about how dry. It's ben and how difficult it's been to get our levi program activated or incorporated in the soil with rainfall. I think we're doing pretty good right. Now late-season we control can be challenging and there's not many options for targeting escapes really. It's the end of the weed control season so there isn't really a whole lot. You can do other than go out and pull weeds by hand right. So but that's stated We want farmers to keep an eye on things for no other reason to know where the weeds are so they can get that into their maps for future years. Peters was one of the presenters at the northwest research and outreach centers crops and soils day yesterday and crooks in the us senate has failed to get the sixty votes necessary to begin. Debate on the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill when it was apparent that votes weren't there. Jordi leader chuck schumer made a procedural move that will allow the bill to come back up for another vote. The one point two trillion dollar infrastructure bill includes funding for roads. Bridges and ports. Democrats are also working on a separate three point five trillion dollar infrastructure plan that focuses on social issues. This is the red river farm network. Thursday farm news on the red river farm network mother. Nature took care of bellefield. North dakota farmer byron richards spring wheat this year finished. Bailing the crop last week. And we'll use that to feed his cattle. This winter richardson's ranchers are starting to run out of grass and more candle will be moved soon part of his cattle or sold off this spring. Sixteen hundred cows. I think we sold off two hundred fifty already and Our yearlings we ended up moving them out east into a feed lot instead of grass. We've got cattle down a logical reduce them down the six hundred head and i know they're struggling for a little moisture in that area as well. Richard typically weans is cast. I part of november but this year. That'll be moved up a month due to dry conditions. I'm old enough to look back at nineteen eighty eight. I went through. That was stuff. Tough time i can think of till now and there's a lot of folks around out there that will tell you this. This is worse than eighty eight and in some scenarios amount of moisture accumulation. It is worse than idiot. Ada we at least had some green up in the spring where this year. There's some acreage that we've got that. Just in green up at all drought his top of mind. In nearly every corner of north dakota red river farm network farm broadcaster. Making overby has more in this report. North dakota state university vice president for agricultural affairs greg. Hardy has been traveling across north dakota the past week taking in extension research center field days. We were heading your dickinson. Williston last week and saw some crop. That didn't look too bad and some that was not looking very good at all and it's really variable a lot of variability in the crop overnight. Langdon expecting to see some more tough conditions. But it's really good to be out with our constituents here are faculty. Staff do a great job at our research extension centers. It's so good to see a lot of interest. In research programs across the state in particular livestock producers across the state are being heavily impacted by the ongoing drought conditions. You know pasture conditions are not good water supplies tough crops going to be real short. So out of our producers are really working at Trying to figure out how they're gonna put up enough forage how they're going to call some of the animals to make room and kind of make some of these judgments lardy reminds farmers and ranchers that there are a plethora of drought related resources available through extension everything from no water quality topics to livestock leading to cropping systems. Sorts of questions. Oliver county offices have egg natural resources. Agent that can assist with a lot of the questions that people might have about managing through the south. You know whether you need information from the web or the you need to have a visit with somebody The resources are there and we'd encourage people to reach out and take advantage of those. The red river farm network will be reporting from the langdon research extension center field day this morning. Follow along on social media for updates. From the event the final field day will be held next tuesday july twenty seventh at the central grasslands research extension center near streeter reporting agriculture's business. I'm megan overby. North dakota senator. John hoven took to the senate floor outlining his opposition to the white house. As tax proposal open sided the administration's plan to eliminate stepped up basis for farmers and ranchers under current law. When passing down a family farm or ranch to the next generation the tax basis is stepped up to fair market value preventing a large tax bill on the next generation of farmers in addition to increasing the tax bill on multigeneration farmers and ranchers repealing stepped up basis would add significant complexity to farmers and ranchers tax filing process. The use of ten thirty one like kind exchanges is also in jeopardy farmers and ranchers use the ten thirty one like kind exchange for many reasons. This includes consolidating land parcels.

Welcome to inside agriculture on the red river farm network university of minnesota's northwest research and outreach centers looking at the impact field drainage has on nitrogen and phosphorous management nutrient water-management specialists. Lindsey peas has a chance to study the impact from initial tile installation. So we are looking at. How a new drainage installation at the research center how that is going to Impact our crops but then also how. The nutrients are circulating in the field. And how that impacts the nitrogen we put on in the phosphorus. We put on. Who's will be able to track any changes in soil structure and nutrient management from the very beginning last year being a very very wet this year being very very dry it. It's going to give us two very different years but overall it's going to give us a great look at different parts of the system last year Looking at how. The drainage is impacting things but this year. We're really going to get a good picture of how the soil disturbance from the drainage installation how that is going to impact our production in our yield the minnesota department of agriculture is accepting claims against pipeline food. Five hundred thousand dollar bond this organic grain company. Which is based in fridley. Minnesota filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy on july eighth. The minnesota department.

Country Morning presented by CHS Ag Services
"This is brian oaks. And i'm sales agronomist for chs egg services and erskine minnesota. We are pleased to bring you this update from the red river farm network services providing solutions for your success. Farm news on the red river farm network. I'm don wick with randy could and we'll have updates from kiro heart and megan overby. Hot and humid weather will be with us for yet another day. Daytime highs could reach the low one hundred's in some areas. Scattered showers are showing up on radar this morning including a line from the millbank It has moved into that fargo area earlier this morning. More significant rains are being seen. From marshall minnesota north through benson glenwood. Sauk centre would dina and there have been showers up into that bagley area earlier as well. The north dakota agricultural weather network and on only as a handful of stations reporting any significant rainfall westport minnesota west of sauk centre has one point one two inches of rain overnight campbell. Minnesota southwest of watan is just under an inch morton north dakota nineteen hundreds would dina reports seventeen. Hundreds portions of western minnesota could face severe thunderstorms later this morning and into the afternoon crap scouts on the quality council spring wheat tour will leave band on this morning. End up in devil's lake tonight. After the first day the average spring wheat yield was estimated at twenty nine and a half bushels per acre that compares to forty five point six bushels per acre in twenty nineteen and a five year average of forty. Three point three bushels per acre all is around this week. Quality council spring wheat tour s&w trading market analyst. Andy kistler says. We've not had a spring wheat crop. This short for a long time. Plays out. I'm long Spring wheat against chicago. I'm outright long this spring wheat i was just going to keep it and see what happens like i originally bought that spread at minus forty On the minneapolis versus chicago. It's plus two hundred two hundred and six today. But it's gone to four dollars over before and i think there's a chance that does that the house agriculture committee has unanimously passed the extension of the whip plus program for twenty twenty and twenty twenty one. The bills calls for eight and a half billion dollars in spending on what plus those dollars must be approved in an appropriations bill. Congress must also act on this legislation before it can be implemented. Usda's risk management agency is providing additional flexibility for farmers and ranchers dealing with the current trout. Additional time is now available to pay premiums and administrative fees interest also will be waived for sixty days in an interview. The red river farm network asked rma acting administrator richard flournoy. If drought stressed corn could be released earlier from crop insurance to address feed shortages. That's something we are way. Then that it's part of kind of a emergency procedures issued because you know Went says acres have been released. Yes than that That that crop can go to another part of it was making sure you know Those acres can be released as soon as possible with the crop losses and current commodity prices. The majority of affected farmers would normally trigger that automatic. Two hundred thousand dollar. A ph review with the volume of claims expected in the region floor. Nice at that is being addressed. We've actually adjusted that processed. Where not everyone who hit that mark. we'll be audited. Use data mining may be more specific and precise than you who would need to be audited. So we think that will significantly reduced the number of audits and we also are looking at that number of audits in a state and if it goes above a certain threshold. We'll look at provide even more really to make sure that you know Folks can get assistance as soon as possible. Illinois encouraged farmers with questions to contact their local crop insurance agent. Maybe too late for this year but bills have been introduced in congress to improve the agriculture department's ability to allow for a timely. Hang of crp land during a weather disaster. Like this year strout. The bill would make emergency haying available when certain conditions are met and with consultation of the state technical committee. The bill has been introduced by senator john. Thune south dakota and minnesota senator tina smith in the upper chamber. A house version was introduced by south dakota representative dusty johnson and minnesota representative and g craig. The sugar program is in the crosshairs again in washington. A bipartisan bill has been introduced in both the house and the senate to make changes in the current sugar program. It calls for the end of production controls on the domestic sugar supply and it repeals a program where the federal government by surplus sugar and sells it to ethanol plants. The proposal also gives more flexibility in regulating sugar imports. Actually go to our dot com. You can sign up for the red river farm network e newsletter. This is the red river farm network. Good morning wednesday farm news on the red river farm network conversations about the cattle industry continue with livestock groups rallying in support of change red river farm network farm broadcaster. Meghan overby has more house. Agriculture and senate judiciary committees will hold hearings on the state of the beef supply. Chain today the senate judiciary is looking at the anti-competitive practices in the meat packing industry. A move requested by iowa. Senator chuck grassley with an eye toward moving legislation. I see the judiciary committee giving us evidence to back up the lack of competitions where we can get some strong legislation out of the agriculture committee. Head of the hearings are calf. Usa submitted comments to usda identifying two factors. The organization calls core structural problems ceo. Bill bullard said the first factor concentration in the packaging sector created the second plum so they have the inherent market power possessed by virtue of their high concentration and then they have this new ability to displace domestic production with imports source from around the world and the combination of those two factors has contributed significantly to the downturn in prices that us cattle producers received bullard also knows their relationship between cattle and beef prices saying the to need to be reconnected. The glue that can bind the two is competition which we can do by supporting the grassley tester spot market protection. Bill that requires the packers to purchase at least fifty percents of their cattle in the competitive cash market. The house egg hearing begins at nine o'clock this morning while the senate judiciary committee will meet at one thirty. Pm central time reporting agriculture business. I'm megan over. V on the red river farm network the grain and livestock markets have been trading very wide ranges with a lot of volatility total farm marketing senior market advisor. Brian doherty says the grain market is at a hinge point. Markets could go either way ingrained in particular Last year's memories are quite fresh that we had challenging weather in august Between a windstorm which is one thing but more so the weather that kind of engulfed the mid west so you know if we start to see a continuation of where it's dry now spread even further. Then i think the market you know self concern soil moisture is the big difference between last year and this year the difference between last year and this year last year we had a two things. One a lot of farmers still they had you know some pretty good reserves moisture that subsoil than they do this year and to a lot of lot of carry out last year on the at this time so i know where lower price. But there wasn't a. You know the urgency when things started to go dry to see the market like respond immediately. The market could respond very immediately with the corn. You know pivot point at five fifty right now. China's uncertain biotechnology approval process influences the tools available in crop production biotechnology innovation organization president and ceo michelle mcmurry heath made the point while testifying before the senate finance committee on average. It takes our companies seven years to get their products approved through china. And we estimate that this has cost over fifty billion dollars just in a five year period recently for us farmers mcmurray heath said agriculture needs it transparent science based process the. Us dairy industry's had some heartburn with canada's dairy tariff quotas and the mexican regulations designed to limit imports idaho dairy farmer allen honnama addressed the need for enforcement of the us mexico canada agreement during testimony before that same senate finance committee out of my said. The dairy industry has couple of priorities for any trade agreement. Number one is market access especially when it came comes to mexico the zero tariff on our imported products. There was a great thing to go after number. Two is that there's a resolution process put in place which we have and we'll see how that plays out hardaway who is a member of the executive committee of the national nut producers. Federation said the. Us should be should go beyond the us mca and work on new trade agreements worldwide according to usda market news. There's only been minimal trading and dry beans this past week black beans and minnesota north dakota or three to four dollars higher thirty at forty two forty three dollars. One hundred white pinto's are one to two bucks higher thirty eight to forty one navy's two dollars one hundred weight higher at thirty five to thirty eight dollars. This is the red river farm network welcomed inside accurate culture on the red river farm network. The national potato council is meeting. Virtually this week today. The final day of the policy discussions red river farm network farm broadcaster care heart has the story national potato council. Ceo cam quarrels says they're solid work to do across all issue areas during this meeting. Fresh potato market access with mexico remains top of mind for us. Potato growers mexico's supreme court ruled in favor of the us to allow fresh exports in april now. The industry is waiting on the mexican government to reinstate the access secretary. Ville sack ambassador. Tie all of the. Us government agencies dealing with. This have been very engaged to try to get fresh potatoes from the united states back into that valuable market. So we're we're driving towards a conclusion. We hope By the end of the year but there are some nuts and bolts to be sorted out. And you know obviously our competitors down in mexico. Their opinion hasn't changed. They do not want to compete against. Us fresh potatoes so That that's going to be an ongoing challenge and we really need the. Us government to be shoulder to shoulder with us to make sure that market not only opens but remains the progress of securing a strong competitive infrastructure. Package is also being closely watched by the potato council. The big multi billion maybe trillion dollar. Question is how do you pay for that. And we wanna make sure that in investing in those vital Assets that keep us competitive in shipping both domestically and internationally That we're not changing tax policy. You might get a benefit and being able to export more efficiently but if you get a bad change in tax policy the farms maybe less competitive board meeting wraps things up tonight reporting agriculture's business. I'm keira heart for the red river farm network agricultural secretary. Tom ville sack is advocating for an upgrade to the country's transportation system the. Us currently has an advantage over the rest of the world with its vast infrastructure system that advantage however overtime has shrunk and the reason it's shrunk is because we haven't invested in improved infrastructure and our competitors have and if we ever lose that competitive edge it will be very very difficult for us to regain it adm reports quarterly earnings of seven hundred. Twelve million dollars up from four hundred sixty nine million in the same period last year strong chinese export demand credited for those gains. Adm officials also cited strong oilseed crush margins for that success in the markets as we speak we're sixteen and three quarter cents higher for minneapolis wheat.

Be sure to tune in to all the racing action by visiting youtubecom Ford slash big data beard or simply visit beer dot com and click virtual race to Dot Gov. You're listening to the big data. or welcome everybody to today's beard podcast. This podcast is part of the virtual race DOT COM for today's race. If you're able to check it out, it was that circuit of the Americas in Austin sponsored by our friends at Red River technology where we hosted some great folks from Red River talking with during the broadcast. But today's podcast we're going to jump into a security topic with Brian. Clark he's a security subject matter expert in design engineering for Red River Technology Brian, welcome to the podcast. Hey, thanks for having me. Thanks for having me. You know we're super excited have co sponsored this event with Dell was really cool to see the logos and everything on the cars. Guys did an amazing job of that. It's fun to drive even though I crashed out I think but you know happens I guess just songs it didn't happen to real life? Well the only one by the way. Everyone is crashed at least once Brezza Marican Pride BMW may or may not have met a wall or to. It happens it looked good doing it though it one though the wall lost. Well. Bryan before we jump into some of the security topics I'd love to just get kind of your background and and then how you ended up becoming an SME insecurity what kind of led you here For. Sure well. I was raised by my grandparents and they were institutional in in some things. So my grandfather. Retired after twenty seven years with IBM. He was a VP in the Manassas facility when he retired so I grew up with eight hundred eighty sixes eights in my house and I thought everybody had a computer until one day. I. Had a conversation about it and we were going over computers in school and the people were seeing a computer for the first time in my class and I said this is really weird. I got to floppy disks. So I had I remember having the first three, eighty six on the block, and then upgrade eaten over time and I. Think we split off from the Intel side of things and got our first six, eighty six. That was being time and my my buddy across the street had pentium and man that penny was flying and it was just interesting times in the computing industry. So with that I, I remember I had my first OCR scanner, which we take for granted the ability to scan things these days. But back then if you wanted to scan text and get it off a paper and get it into usable format, you'd have to have this object for recognition scanner and card in your computer. People even remember those days I know I'm dating myself. I'm not even forty yet. So. I don't feel bad. I'm literally listened to Non River that my dad was my dad. Things they're gonNA remember this stuff. So you know just I use that scanner to scan the phone book and I created a dial directory because I had learned about bulletin board systems. So that really led me down a path of information overload and what do I do this? How do I catalog this information and how do I use it to my advantage born bars are free if you could get on them, they always had fun things like the Game Zork. Well one day I dialed into the wrong bulletin board and I was playing Zork and I had I had every combination are trying down in those writing them down and trying different companies inside the game. I found a interesting combination and that led to welcome to a three hundred agency plays into your credentials and. So. Far, a little bit later down the road I ended up. Going into the army for a certain reasons, and I was a information systems analyst. And really that was before. The word hacker or ethical hackers even thought about they just called this information systems analysts and the you went to work for the army hacking into whatever they needed me to do so very interesting time for sure. Okay. So let's let's talk a little bit about that that idea of ethical hacker because it. Feels like an oxymoron. But I'm curious just. unpack what does that mean? What does it mean? What does that mean today and what are those folks like employable is that something you put on your resume? What does it actually mean? Yeah, it definitely isn't employable satis and they have a high level, very detailed certifications around it. You can actually be certified ethical hacker You can be an Ocse, which is the very big hacking tests that kind of builds on itself that you start with one box and you compromise it, and then you keep moving and if you can't continue compromising your way through, you won't pass the exam. So back in the day hacking, an ethical hacker no, it wasn't really a cool term hacking period wasn't really an accepted measure. There was no United States state sponsored hacking other countries that was talked about it was it was definitely occurring, but it's not how we talked about it. Right So it became into everybody was into what is their vulnerability? Let's get on ability assessment but that was that was one thing but actually breaking into systems using these abilities and against the systems as what we started with back then and a Lotta Times it was. Training and not just like actually I can. But we spent a lot of time just doing you know verbal. Meet and greets and social engineering where it was, let's get in the building. Let's let's get some data. Let's get into a meeting that we don't belong in and then give that report to some some sort of high level you know GSM or you know. Generally, one to star style interview process where we're they want an assessment of what's going on. Can you get data out of my environment? It was so easy. A kid could do it, and that's where we learned from a lot of these trainings that companies go through. Now where they don't let people tell you don't talk about work don't wear your badge just simple stuff like that. That was very, very simple back. Then if you had a real high quality printer man, you could make a badge and it would look great. So. I remember Reading Kevin Mitnick's book about. The whole. What he was doing back then and it was all about social engineering at that time. Now, what we've evolved into is actual. Offensive. Information gathering or hacking as they call it from other countries, right So that that's where it's more to it is. There's a new training program within the air, force and the army. It's fifty two weeks long they start taking from just out of high school and turn you into into a hacker. I. It is huge in the industry. Now you've heard of the penetration test, you've heard of the vulnerability assessment. Well, this takes it to just a whole different level and and that's what we were doing back then and we just ever talked about it. Right it was. Not. something that the everybody was like, yeah, I'm a hacker. No didn't talk about that stuff. I'm curious from from a lot of times. The folks that you know that we talked to you, we're super into the data side were you know more it practitioners and so I'm not sure how familiar folks are security and some of the the threats that we face today but I You talked a couple times about of state-sponsored. Activities you know tell me a little bit about what like when you think about state-sponsored? Do you think about like that? It's it's threats to America America threats to other people like what is the state of current state sponsored hacky? Do you think well I mean that's that's both both offensive and defensive right so from a defensive perspective the. Government organizations and and your your. Government entities need to know what their vulnerability. Risk is so this morph to these days into the annual compliance requirements that's out there. So there's a compliance or Carmont within the government. Now, to do a yearly penetration tests on every system that you have an it o on right are eight zero. So the that need came from folks like myself and others in the organization, you might call it. That would just kind of go at these things right and then presented a report we weren't asked to. It was just kind of job and if you were working for this organization, you just you know Kinda go play around in the sandbox as you might call it and then give information to those that needed it. We find that we didn't always have the best coders, for instance. There was a situation where we found like over two thousand instances of the same password being used in an application, and we're able to get that out of a badly coated. HDP page. Right. So you know, and then we got able to pivot from their got back into the database started inserting things we put this Poe of. Of. The the person in charge sitting on a duck in somewhere and it was like, Hey, look at we did. So. You can have fun with it at least absolutely absolutely and what it, what it teaches the security and what it means for for the industry really is. There's a there's a different mindset of network or even the network security guy that comes up and just knows how to firewalls right knows how to put blocks place knows that I can figure maybe an intrusion prevention system hacker or or an ethical hacker always has a mindset of there is a way. I haven't found it yet, and I will exhaust every resource possible to try to figure it out. Because I know in the end, I will find a way right? Well, that's quite an attitude. It can be yeah absolutely. So looking at twenty twenty and with with the pandemic, really the associated shift in a large portion of the workforce moving and becoming remote. Has created such a you know a much wider tax surface right What are some of the best practices that you are guiding security practitioners to consider in this twenty twenty state? Absolutely so one of the things we're talking about the expanse of the basically of the entire. Corporate Environment and the corporate security controls that we have out there. So we've been talking with our customers about how we secure the remote, the remote worker, a lot of our our vendors which has been great have come up with these amazing opportunities for four customers. Some of them were even free. You know it's like we have no. How long cove is GonNa last, you know here's a bunch of Cisco at Milwaukee offering that was. I WANNA. Say it was dirt cheap and it was like here's a firewall with intrusion prevention, anti malware and sand boxing. Put It in front of your right behind your remote workers is p. and give yourself some sense of security because that was what we were seeing A. Lot of our customers have what you call non Split Tunnel VPN's so their mindset was I'm going to send all the traffic across, and now we've got you know both corporate assets and non corporate assets joining the VPN because let's face it not everybody had a laptop it every company that could take their laptop and go home. So, there's been a lot of a lot of that, and then a lot of our security wasn't sized properly we help the state of New Hampshire with the week that they sent everybody home, the firewalls crashed like literally crashed. And and that's that's what we've seen is there wasn't capacity planning for for everybody to go home. There wasn't how do we? How do we move our thought process outside of the building and say, okay, our risk exposure is now this big so. You know that was that's big, and then how do I? How do I patch systems when it's out there you know that there were pushed a two hundred and fifty six meg patch the other day and the you know the VPN was no good for half the day. So those things happened, right? You gotta continue to update systems the the. Shift is now. Might. Not Bring these people back right. So how how what do we do now? Where where what do we do from a security point? So you know we're talking about. You know a on box solution right? You're your tissue like crowd strikes something like that That manages the end point and keeps track of the point. You also have you. We Are we going to ship five, thousand, Ten, thousand and twenty thousand meaning firewalls with with all these capabilities out there or going gonNA still because the. The thing that we're hearing is we can't keep these full tunnels up. To Ask the question is twenty twenty finally the Vdi. I mean yeah, that's a that's a solid question. And that brings up. Okay if I'm going to I, I'm going to have high quality VDI pipe for that right. So by now going to start paying for every employee's Internet connection, that's that's a big topic coming up for twenty twenty one like as we move into. Changing the changing of the policy at certain companies, it's OK. Now, we're going to start paying paying for Internet, pipes and not just small ones but I mean we're talking some that you have video full video enabled videoconferencing. Over these things, it's GonNa chew up some bandwidth so SHIFTING DOLLARS FROM INVESTMENTS IN COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE TO TO SP service providers absolutely. Absolutely. Yes. They did a beard is going to be something that we're GONNA get paid for next year. We, streaming now I'm curious though when you think about that like it starts to spread out like your network, your surfaces spray. Now you know you gotta be able to have like a process that you the team at Red River when you talk to an organization that they engage with, you like what does engagement look like when rhetoric river reaches out and says, Hey, we're we need help building A. More, secure environment for this, this kind of remote workforce we need to build in the security we need to enable some of this more intensive compliance activities. What does that engagement looks like and what are maybe the services and things that you guys do to come alongside your customers pressure so we have an assessment service that we've we've worked on this year NFL twenty that we've. Seen High, success on. So we come in and we look at your your risk vector from or what I call the threat scape. So some people got the threat landscape I just just make it work. It's the threat scape. So. We look at avenues in areas where now that you have remote workforce, you're going to increase your risk and we talked to him about where the level of security and to what point. Or were what efficacy they want to decrease the risk of of what they have going on. So we have a conversation around What are you using on box? So what kind of endpoint solutions do you have? Because as we're still kind of byod in these environments, we WANNA. have an important system. How do we push it? How do you manage it you know if I drop it in point on your byod laptop is that now managed system as far as inventory goes. So how does that affect for government agencies? Yes there are some government agencies that camp give PIP cards right now, but they're giving people VPN access interesting. So you have the right. So we have that conversation of how do we? How do we increase security posture decrease your risk, and what is now your exposure because some of our customers are also having to increase their insurance policies for cyber and that's that's having a whole `nother thing right. So again it's. The assessment services that we offer we we have conversations around our imports protection. We talk about protecting the pipes secure VPN tunnels, things like that, and then proper identification and authorization of users is this a corporate assets? Should it be getting into the into the VPN there's some customers that don't allow Byod, but they never moved to certificate based authentication. They're only using eighty using the password. Well, that means if I use. My personal laptop and I install any connect on log in any classes VPN solution and I just put in my password it's getting on the network, and now this byod acid is on my network with a full pipe into the environment and I'm bringing any malware, any any viruses that might be missing so that's that's another big avenue where we we're talking with customers is securing securing your VPN links and making sure that. You know what's coming in is safe and then you know they, they're asking the questions. Hey, we had a malware infected machine infecting other and other machines on the same VPN segment and how do we stop that? So that's that's come up twice now. With, full tunnel VPN's where dismember infection machine is now causing issues. How do we? How do we? What do we do? What do we do customers calls and? They're almost pseudo down because now they're remote environment and it's like self denial of service. Well. Yeah. So what are the things that you know we're? We're doing as part of this This racing series is obviously partnered with spunk their title sponsor and be curious to get your perspective on. You know their their value proposition. Kind of what you hear their executives talk about is they bring data to every decision. You know question decision in action, and in the security context I have to imagine that you know having access to. Data is clearly very important in how you make these decisions. So I'd be curious to hear how you know how is Red River partnering was Split to specifically help solve some of these security challenges. GAFFER sure we call it actionable intelligence. The data that these that our customers get need to be something that if a user is going to spend five minutes on, they can find something quick enough that they have the actionable intelligence that gives them something to work from or take an action right Data without without correlations such as what spunk and bring. So we send, we try to get all of our customers to work towards. Sending their data's using some of the security dodge boards that are out there from a free perspective or even offered perspective from other other companies. They seem to if we can get the data there can get it into a paint, a glass that they can use, and that's what we that's. What we preach is that you know the days of logging into your firewall or logging into your network access control head end are over to move this into a single pane of glass where you can get this actionable intelligence that allows you to do more with less than your environment and actually focus on the things that matter absolutely now, as we've talked about the, the network is expanding not only with work from home. Know context but also with just the explosion of Iot and the. Instrumentation of things in a way that's just you know as we've seen the cost of components to build this capability goes down the desire to build more intelligence into everything we have how do you see spunk helping, handle and deal with the network? Service area as we start to think about the IOT explosion. Oh Man. So I look at the Iot explosion as everything in the IOT world has an identity. And I think I. I want to I want to capture this in in inside a spunk. So one of the cool dashboards I've seen recently is it the hardware asset inventory dashboards, and we through the USA spunk where you're able to provide our customers with harder acid inventory that has the asset tag the host name has it the username authentication status and then depending on their? What the authentication method is possibly their access control status so Which? ACL We've applied or what they were group they fall under also, we're starting to get data on. What they're connecting to so Now able to say, well, that's an IPHONE, or watch. Or something else and we get that information from them so. Spoke is allowing us to send the data in from a couple of different sources and then correlate it and actually put these dashboards together for customers to show what is what it sally really bring to work today, how many devices to sell have. And the customers used to gulp everybody has to three devices. It's getting to the point where it's more like five six and it's I think it's just going to grow I mean you know I've got anything about it. You've got an Apple Watch you get an apple phone I've got IPAD that I carry with me I bring to laptops everywhere I go. What's what's next? Oh, my headphones there. They can connect to the Wifi because it has the built in. Radio thing and my headphones crazy I mean it's all. It's all going that direction. What spunk allows us to do is is then is really correlate the information together in like I said, give the customers actionable intelligence absolutely now you know as we start to think about the, you know maybe the next year ahead of the next twelve months and you can put. Your you know you're kind of vision had on what are some of the the trends in the security space that you're watching most closely that you think you're going to be really important to to the governor's issues you serve. But also that you know spunk, in red, river are going to be going after in terms of solving challenges that are ahead of. Yes. So right now our customers are really big and talking about zero trust and and this new fancy term called Sassy or service service access security edge. And I might be wrong on that. But it Sassy we just called Sassy and. So. It's it was coined by Gartner and it talks about we want to move everything outside of boxes in it should all just live in the edge but it it it believes in in almost a thought process of there's not going to be data centers anymore but I mean it's really always somebody. Else's data center. So. Think of Douay. It's zero trust and that's that's the brunt of it is that we want to our customers to to be able to to get that kind of. Protection and think of it from Zero Trust Perspective to where. They get more and their security postures is increased from it. So but it's a it's a tough. It's a tough call right just getting identity at of some customers as a problem right getting matching identity to a geo location as a whole different topic You know those are those are big undertakings for a lot of organizations. So confident. Right around the corner, we're only just a mere. I think less than one week away. What are you most excited for for this year? Oh Man. That's a good question. GOING TO BE MY. First one. So, I'm always. This is my first podcast for twenty twenty. So even me I was a little sweaty before and. So I think there's ways that I think. I. Can use in my daily operations with customers that I'm just not thinking about to go back to that whole like I haven't figured it out yet. I I haven't figured out one hundred percent how How do you smoke it every customer and how I I can you know move pivot from? Let's get away from SIS log and move into something that can do this. So I WANNA learn more about how that conversation and how to how to get more customers to adapt to this because it makes my life easier and and be whenever I can give them something that shows immediate are y. it's great absolutely. Well, it's one of those young conferences we obviously are huge fans every year I think one of the things I I like most about dot com is that you know more than fifty percent of the sessions are actually delivered by. Not Vendors by actually by. Practitioners Industry using spunk. Across a variety of use cases from security it to observe ability and I'm not.

This Week In Agriculture
"This week in agriculture production of the red river farm network with look at markets. I'm randy conan. Us commodities president. Don rose says it was a risk off trading week really the corn. Just let the air out of the balloon here You know from the top that we had on friday six eleven on these corn. You drop a dollar four from top to bottom and just Six trading days. So you know that's a that's a significant You know the soy you know so. I think it was a risk off trade probably as simple as rain moving through some of the big states here. Us production pretty pretty much. A tale of two areas this season while the northern plains struggling with drought s&w trading market analyst. Andy schussler says parts of the eastern corn belt are having one of their best crops ever central illinois where they got like that eleven inches of rain. Probably looking at two hundred eighty bushel corn. Some people didn't really lucky in northern illinois. We've been really dry. But we kinda got bailed out here this last week by like central illinois like to one area the country. That's really really really good. Clayton pope commodities president clayton. Pope said there are a lot of conflicting market opinions tugging at this grain market. Right now take on it. Is that You know the recent rains received in the north west area. Do you know your home country. There you know definitely not a drought buster. But it's Maybe walked it off the cliff just a little bit here and possibly arguably avoiding a total disaster for some of these areas there i think is such And then the other two thirds of the growing area in the us Looking at pretty doggone excellent conditions for their pollination period. I think it's really kind of commanding risk. Premium come out of this. These corn market the us exported a record amount of soybeans during the first quarter the value of those exports were the second highest on record. Usda's foreign agricultural service reports soybean sales totaling seven point seven billion dollars. Usda analysts said the us was able to take advantage of brazil's delayed crop and build exports with china foreign service reports said soiling export values were expected to remain strong through the remainder of the year global commodity analytics and consulting president. My zoos lows at the grain markets also appear to be hunkering down because of rainfall and mondays. Usda supply-demand report rainfall and report and so the to ours are really in the forefront of our bodies minds the corn would probably be down more in fact randy if you ask me because the trade seems to build up more of a negative attitude as the weeks progressed about the corn market whether it's the supply side and the weather whether it's about the total demand side here in the united states. I've heard more and more about that and less and less about the brazilian crop. And i'm wondering whether the code numbers coming in above ninety million tonnes maybe didn't change some of the rhetoric and force the market into a real technical kind of tough spot with some of the key weekly and monthly charts Getting violated here as we close out the week on the week. Minneapolis spring wheats September was down. Twenty four and a half cents. Chicago is down thirty seven and three quarters in kansas city september. It was down twenty five and a quarter while september corn was down sixty two and a half cents for the week. December corn down. Sixty two and three quarters august soybeans lost fifty four cents this week november soybeans were down sixty nine and three quarter cents. That's the look at markets this week in agriculture. I'm randy conan. This is a wakeup call for you. And your fields microbial from source by sound. Agriculture source is a revolutionary chemistry approach. That doesn't rely on bulk nutrients or finicky biologicals to wake up your soil and unlock more corn from less than an ounce of application for acre. It's like caffeine for microbes source works with the soil. You've already got and the equipment you already use. So if you're a grower go to sound dot egg and learn more. And if you're a micro time to rise and shine. The red river. Farm network is celebrating. Twenty five years of reporting agriculture's business reporting from long beach california for the red river farm network. i'm randy conan reporting agricultural business from washington dc.

I'm megan overby on the red river farm network. Usda has announced farmers and ranchers with crop. Insurance nationwide can hake raise or chop cover crops at any time and still receive one hundred percent of their prevented planting payment previously cover. Crops couldn't be used for hay or silage until november first nationwide risk management agency acting administrator. Richard flournoy told the red river farm network. This decision has been a work in progress. The last several years we've had significant Preventive planning in the in the program. So we did. We did offer some flexibility on the date on the last two years. They really is kinda been under Discussion and consideration the last several years. Senators hoven kramer and thune praise this decision. Seeing a one-size-fits-all approach does not work for northern states. Farmers should contact their crop insurance agent for more information. The boots on the ground to is back this year. Red river farm network farm broadcaster don wick and advanced trading risk management advisor. Tommy safi of mayvale. North dakota are touring routes jerking areas of north dakota. We go to donna wick. With this report from the two were. Everyone is feeling the impact of this historic drought but north dakota agriculture commissioner. Doug goring says livestock producers may have the toughest situation the availability of grass and hay is just not enough to sustain north dakota's cattle herd. Goring is seeking the release of crp ground for hain but so far. Usda has been tight. Lipped i did ask that. We would get notified as soon as possible because producers have to get equipment ready. They gotta make arrangements. Stephen find some sierra. Crp that might be said enough to actually harvest or hey and then Then they have to make arrangements to move that stuff there. So i asked for july fifteenth opening. I mean it'd be nice. If i found out today we could notify the public. Let the industry know they could start making plans but I anticipate good news. I'm just not sure what the dates going to be one. We're gonna find out from my not to bismarck are boots on the ground to or found a soybean crop under stress but could make it if it rains the small grains not so much the crop is short and the stands are sparse. I'm don wick on the road on the red river farm network. In addition red river farm network farm broadcaster cara heart is in sioux. Falls south dakota this week or the twenty twenty. One governors eggs summit. We turn to care a hard with more the latest. Us drought monitor shows an increase in the moderate. To extreme drought conditions in south dakota from the previous week south. Dakota's lieutenant governor. They were eroding says. Most of the state got rain in the last few days but that rain has little impact on the dry conditions. There's going to be a hey shortage and we've seen that in the past especially west of the river but we haven't seen as often is how widespread the drought is in the. Hey shortage so it's going to come so commodity like hey have so much costs shipping. So that's going to be a major problem for producers that want to try and hang onto this cab on the price of that. Hey is going to be so prohibitive. I don't know how how we play. That all plays out reporting agriculture's business from sioux falls south dakota i'm keira heart for the red river farm network and that's been a look at news this weekend.

Podcast radio stations and more with a look at weather this week. In agriculture i'm randy conan. Hot dry weather will continue to be the theme for the month of july world. Weather inc senior meteorologist. Drew learners is periodic. Rains will happen but it will not break the drought cycle. And it'd be very hard to get enough precipitate in there to reverse the dryness deep into the ground and so we are kind of stuck in a a bit of a mode here. And i don't think we're going to see a lot of relief. Northern plains needs a general soaking of rain but nutrient solutions principal atmospheric scientists eric snodgrass widespread. Rains are not common this time of year. Yeah and unfortunately this time of year. It all comes down thunderstorm so sometimes those thunderstorms can come through and really pack a punch but Yeah it's it's going to be a week ahead. I think we're going to be watching the radar pretty closely to see where these thunderstorm cells setup throughout the day on that heat so there's a chance atmosphere is going to pop and it could be some really well timed rain for some of the crop that but You know most of the area really need just a good soaking few good soaking between now and the end. July and nearly twenty five percent of the united states is dealing with extreme or exceptional drought. Usda meteorologist brad rip uses. That is having a significant impact on crop production. Right at the top of the list is spring wheat. We see a remarkable ninety three percents of the us spring week. Production area and drought up from seventy nine percent at the beginning of june. Also seeing a very high number for durum wheat ninety two percent of drought and numbers been elevated for several weeks now. Eighty eight percent was the number as we started june horn. Production area drought thirty eight percent. That's up from twenty four percent at the beginning of june soybean production area and drought the us thirty three percents that's up ten percentage points the latest. Us drought monitor. Shows all of north dakota in some level of drought nearly twelve percent is in exceptional drought with that area. Being in the central portion of the state forty percent of the state is experiencing moderate severe or extreme drought conditions an increase of six percent from the previous week severe and extreme drought conditions increased five percents in south dakota that encompasses eighteen percent of the state. Those areas are in the north central and northeastern part of the state. Ninety nine percent of south dakota is experiencing some form of dryness drought conditions in minnesota also expanded with ninety two percent of minnesota at the d. one level or higher areas in moderate severe or extreme drought increased nearly twenty nine percent over the past week that dryness mainly focused on the western side of minnesota according to central and consulting economist. Ben general the hot and dry conditions have already left a mark on the small grains crop however there is some potential yet for the row crops if they can catch some timely rains terrain i. I won't be worrying about anything boarding flowers or early pod set on some really light ground. I've seen some pretty bad drought stress already. Nice kind of an indicator that you know. We're probably ten days away from it's starting to show up in In other fields though early rains were attentiveness. Rate now makes a difference so have a lot of hope and potential for the soybeans corn and definitely sugar beets and sunflowers cornell marketing market analysts. Sam hudson's his traders are expecting rains. Moving through the midwest stabilize the crops even though the soybean crop seems to be behind his regular growth pattern hudson's not expecting much though from the spring wheat crop. The only difference make you're going to have in this one is if there was Someone that has happened to catch a string along shower somewhere along the way there and then they get this to to really help them along but by and large you know i. It's pretty well known about what that crops is going to be. And i think there's some places they're gonna be like degrees if that and that's a look at weather this week in agriculture i'm randy conan for a former every day is different and every season tells its own story.

This Week in Agriculture
"This week in agriculture production of the red river farm network with the look at markets. I'm randy conan. Usda raise soybean ending stocks lowered corn ending stocks a little more than what the grain trade was expecting global commodity analytics and consulting president. Mike zoos loafing global supply fundamentals are in play now for this grain market that we're starting to find more of the fundamentals of ample supplies coming out of south america to take competitive The competitive side of the soybean market away from the united states whereas what the corn the usda confirm that. We've got a tighter crop down in brazil specifically and it's going to be a lot more difficult for the corn market to find any kind of meaningful competition around the rest of the world. The biggest competition the biggest nemesis for the corn market when it comes to the export and the feed market continues to be the wheat. Usda lowered old corn. Carry out by one hundred and fifty million bushels raised old crop soybean carry-over by fifteen million bushels increased new crop carrying by that same fifteen million and made no change to new crap usage resulting in a new crop so i being carry out fifteen million bushels higher at one hundred fifty five million bushels. Usda lowered new crop weaning. Stocks by four million bushels on increase feed and residual use usda lowered world old crop corn ending stocks by three million metric tonnes from the may report to two hundred eighty point six million raise soybean ending stocks to eighty eight million metric tons and lowered weeden stocks by about a million tons to two hundred ninety three and a half million world new crop ending stocks. A corn soybeans are all right on the average trade guests total farm marketing senior market advisor. Naomi bloom things. Traders are little unsure how to deal with the increased soybean. Carry out in the june supply demand report market. You know they're not sure what to make of it and then stocks being a little bit larger than anticipated but again we know that the producers in north dakota are having to replant fighting drought now fighting too much rain in some places of north dakota and the rest of the midwest is really still in need of Rain especially with the heat. That's coming through. And because of the uncertainty over production due to drought many farmers are reluctant to market this year's crop and you country vice president to farm services rich morrison says an option strategy will help you take advantage of high prices without committing bushels to an elevator. Yes you're not committed in that case where you're buying a put you're just you're basically buying an insurance policy on price you know when we've got new crop corn above six dollars on the board You know it's hard to one you know you don't want to let that get away from you and so you could buy put and lock in a minimum price there but you know if you don't raise the crop then you you just basically i'm a piece of and for farmers who have never used options before morrison says start small claims commodities market analysts jacob. Burks at the grain trade went back to focusing on whether following. Usda's june supply demand report. I'll weather. I mean it's something that we saw some thunderstorms Ball up in kind of be explosive in parts of eastern iowa and some of the northern illinois but it sounds like covers may not have been as wide as we.

"This is prayer cloth. And i sales a ground for c. h. s. services in greenbush minnesota. We're pleased to bring you this update from the river farm network services providing solutions for your success. Good morning farm news on the red river farm network. I'm john wick with randy koon and updates from gerhard and megan over becoming your way as well more than two weeks after hurricane ida logistical problems. Remain at the gulf. Power is still out at many facilities and that's the biggest issue. Delays in unloading barges at the golf is also resulting in a shortage of empty barges. Needed up river to handle this year's harvest barges on the mississippi river from memphis tennessee to cairo illinois. Rockford at seven hundred fifty percent of tariff. That's up from six hundred fifty percent on monday. That dramatic uptick is in a market which typically moves just around ten percent at a time following hurricane ida total grain inspections last week where the lowest since january of twenty nineteen told the grain inspections for the week of september ninth down seventy five percent from a year ago. We'd inspections increased thirty three percent soybeans. Were up sixteen percent but that was not enough to offset the fifty percent drop in corn inspections no movement out of the gulf but the action out of the peon w was up thirty percent from the previous week. Us commodities market analyst don rosa's hearing a common theme to the questions he's receiving are we in a new plateau for commodity prices. Well we don't know so that means that you should take advantage of what you have. You've got curious in the market new crop even this year and next year. Still profitable for producers and an army. Mind you don't necessarily have to make hard sales but you can do some strategies that gives you the flexibility to get some of the up and down on august thirty first of last year. Corn was trading at three zero seven a bushel. Regressive egg marketing president. Ray grabinski says the may contract went up to seven seventy because that's seven seventy corn if you held it till now is now off the december contract at five thirty or so. So you know there's been quite a change in the market and right now we have new crop. Dc twenty two corn which is about ten cents from its high all time high in the past few years that it's been trading and we're trading at five ten or so so we went from three. Oh seven for cash gore. Now we have five seven five ten for next year's these twenty two the shortage we have this year. We're not gonna have enough corn in this area. And our basis could skyrocket for twenty one corn as corn and soybean harvest begins across the northern plains. There are good marketing. Opportunities read over farm network farm broadcaster care heart has more west central services grain merchandiser randy zimmerman says soybean maturities have been all over the board this year rainfall previous crop soil types How fast is brought that. Crop to harvest is has been really a varied across the board and that kind of follow suit with the yield as well. yields all over the place. You know as low as beans in the teens up to beans in the fifties. So it's going to be a pretty variable crop. We have talked to a number of people that have said that the beans if they're ready if they're not we're putting the corn head on and we're gonna go after the corn and then when the beans get ready we'll go back so i think we're gonna see a lot of back and forth. I think a big concern for the producers. If i've sold some ahead. Am i going to have enough to fulfil those contracts and i would just say be in constant contact with your merchandiser and hopefully you can work on a plan to get you out of some of those. If you are short are green soybeans coming into the elevator. Zimmerman says the peon w wants the soybean so bad there have not been discounts for that in ulan in beltramini minnesota basis has improved greatly at local grain elevators due to china demand basis at local elevators are probably the best. It's ever been at harvest. A great opportunity If you don't want to win those beans at least to get a basis contract put together on them and move those beans at harvest with with the pow and all those buyers that are out on the west coast wanting those beans as soon as they can to get them shipped. It's provide an excellent opportunity to do something with them.

Insurance claims this year abc country farm credit services insurance specialist. Joel lizzani expects to see more high dollar claims as well what we asked all our producers to do is just make sure you're keeping accurate records to get scaled tickets assembly sheets. Make sure these. These assembly sheets and scale tickets are identified by location. The date they were harvested. If we got guys they still use load logs. Make sure you're indicating location. The number of bushels in that law or in that truck and then again. The date that it was harvested absolutely crucial in a year. Like this listening says the harvest price for crop. Insurance purposes was up twenty nine percent from last year. Going from six fifty three to nine twenty one k. We if you have a weight loss you're going to get paid at nine twenty one. That is not a bad day. You know that. I mean so again the importance and i'm assuming we're going to probably see the thing with corn and soybeans are probably gonna come in higher than the projected price which means you're not going to see increases in your bushel guarantees this year. You are going to get paid at the higher price. But you're bushel guarantees. What they're going to be unless something dramatic happens. The markets continue to tell a story as harvest progresses across the region. Red river farm network farm broadcaster. Megan overby has more. The cash market. Doesn't lie that was one point made by advanced trading risk management advisor. Tommy girls off during the big iron farm show or safi things. North dakota will be a bushel deficit state for awhile every year. I've been here. The farmer just wants complain about the basis and this is the first year ever. They weren't complaining about basis because they don't have the bushels so where the actual bushels in. How dynamic can this cash market get so the price of derm. So questions came in. What's the usda gonna. Say i'm like who cares with the is going to look at the local cash market. That won't lie. That is what you're gonna get for your crop. I feel that north dakota's going to be a bushel deficit an actual corn and bean bushel deficit for awhile. Christophe adds that specialty crops like canola. Barley dry beans in more growing in the northern plains are bright spot in the market. Some of those cash prices have even doubled since the beginning of planting the specialty. Crops will need to buy more acres in twenty twenty two people. North dakota are so worried that everyone's going to plant and get caught up but there's certain things we grow regionally that can only be grown up. Here in north dakota saskatchewan parts. Canada in a few parts in the world so A lot of people can grow wheat everywhere. Corn and beans some places but some of these specialty crops cannot handle high temperatures in large amounts of moisture. so there's a reason why the northern plains and we're going to get back to our roots and grow those crops again for the next few years.

So that's a good thing but we'll be able to go a few several weeks down the road and maybe get some moisture at the same time.

But in the meantime our our desire obviously is for these purchases to continue and increase. Obviously it's made an impact because Because of their purchases at record levels We've seen a bit of a strengthening if you will In comparison to where body prices were a year ago. They're not as high as they were a couple of months ago but they're still higher than a year ago and that's in part because of these purchases as of october fourth.

Good morning farm news on the red river farm network. I'm don wick with randy kuhnen. We'll have updates from carol higher tenmaking overby. The temperatures will ramp up into the nineties and even the one hundred today. The hot and hazy conditions are expected to be with us for most of the week world weather. Inc says relief from the dry weather is not likely for the next month. The weekend was dry from the eastern dakotas minnesota and wisconsin into northern illinois. Northern missouri and parts of kansas reign did fall and some other parts of the corn belt. North dakota state university extension crops marketing economist frayne olson says within the corn belt. It's a tale of two crops. We have the eastern corn belt that has had very good rainfall in some cases almost too much rain and we have the western corn belt which is definitely on the dry side so the imaginary line divides east in west is the mississippi river. So if you're east of the mississippi like illinois indiana ohio kentucky. Those guys have had really nice rains. In fact in case in some cases too much then you get to the western corn belt. Obviously we're on the dry side and the market's having a hard time trying to differentiate that they're having a hard time trying to figure out is the additional bushels. We're going to have in the east going to be enough to compensate. For some of the shortfall we might see in the west and olsen says much of the drought expectations in the dakotas are already factored into the market but the corn and soybean production areas of southern minnesota and northern iowa are being watched closely looks as low that southern minnesota in particular. Northern iowa is having some problems that the crop conditions are deteriorating. We're really trying to figure out what does that all mean. Minnesota governor tim. Walls is asking agriculture secretary. Tom ville jacques for emergency hain and grazing on eligible. Crp acres in an interview with the red river farm network while said the drought is a serious issue for livestock producers. have to prepare for worst case scenario. This could be you know. The two thousand twelve could be one thousand nine hundred eighty. It could be worse. I mean by the time. Well we don't know for sure. But i do think there's things that this is why these things are in place. There's a lot of conversations happening. And i think for minnesotans not not watching this way producers. Do This thing could get pretty pretty serious. And you're exactly right. It plays out slowly. It doesn't really impact the same way we're floods hit everybody the same It it really impacts agriculture. And that's the one we need to keep an eye on. Walls is convened. The state drought task force. That hasn't happened since two thousand twelve drought concerns remained for north dakota's farley producers and the hot temperatures in this week's forecast will not improve conditions right over five network broadcast to carry a heart has more a higher protein lower-yielding barley crop is expected in north dakota this year. Here's north dakota. Barley council executive administrator. Steve edwardson of this past week. Usda nasr's forecasting barley production north dakota to be at eighteen point two million bushels. That's down thirty seven percent from Last year typically on. He'll the yoghourts been you know experiencing some good yields in recent years You know seventy bushel breaker plus Very typical Nasr's putting yield this year at Thirty bushel spreaker. And that's Twenty five bushel per acre lower than a year ago. So we're we're going to have a shorter supply than than we've had in the past high protein. Barley is not necessarily a bad thing when it comes to pet food but it is less desirable for malting and brewing. A protein range between twelve to thirteen and a half percent is the preference for malting and brewing edwards and says that industry is not in a panic yet. But there is a about supply supplies to be tighter. Hand of that's going to Certainly impact contracting programs for twenty twenty two whether it's going to be You know probably a little. Bit more assertive. In trying to build some inventory back into carrying position most farmers indicate there will be some barley to harvest with yields up to thirty to forty bushels per acre. The next few days of extreme heat won't help the crop or there was only five kinds of weather when you're farming too hot too dry to wet golden too many. I think the growers are certainly concerned. As as we all are about the you know the impact that the going gonna have on crops are still trying to to To make it out there. I think small grains like barley and Spring wheat that. They're they're pretty much done by about now.

The risk of a baylor fire preventative measures. Don't have to feel and be complex. I really recommend just starting by doing a simple walk around the baylor to get a good idea of what condition your baylor's in and be able to look at maintenance options and doing that visual assessment allows you to inspect the bearings for signs of wear and an example of of a sign of where in a bearing is looking for that purple discoloration on the rollers of those large round.

Spring wheat and drought has registered now one hundred percent in oregon with twenty percent and exceptional drought a one hundred percent of drought in iowa. An idaho seven percent exceptional. and now. we're at one hundred percent still in the north dakota areas with nine percent now in exceptional minnesota remains at one hundred percent as well with the zero in exceptional but thirteen percent in extreme.

Zoos little things traders awaiting to see how much damage there has been to that spring wheat crop. I do think the. Usda report was a wakeup call. But i still quite honestly feel like the the trades. Kind of tiptoeing around it right now and. I don't think they really grasped the idea that this is every bit as bad if not worse than what the illinois and indiana producers went through in two thousand twelve when it came to the corn crop. And i think we're heading towards that type of disaster as far as crop failure if these Drought numbers or any indication. This is the red river farm network. Welcome to inside agriculture. On the red river farm network nearly all of the northern plains is experiencing some form of drought which is having an impact on crop health senior technical sales manager sherri cook says the crops are showing symptoms of drought and nutrient deficiency. When we're attacking our plant mobile type nutrients. The lower older lease will show deficiencies. I like with our nitrogen. A foster potasium are key nutrients and then when nutrients are are not plant mobile. And that's several of our micronutrients. We see symptoms in our newer leaves. And so there's some different definite differences between drought and nutrient deficiencies. Our best bet at this stage of the game at this time of the year to get the best snapshot of what's actually happening out in the field would be to do a tissue sample and tissue sampling. We'll give you several options. And that gives us the option to decide. Do we want to do something about it or is it to dry. We're not gonna get a crop where we're gonna wait rate or do we wait swell test this fall and see what nutrients are left because when we have these top four to eight inches that are really dry. Oftentimes are nutrients are just sitting there and we don't get the moisture to move them around in that soil profile. Oftentimes there's there's nutrients of left. And so i definitely promote doing a soil test this fall just to see what's left and to see where racks south dakota governor christie.

Paul hagen at midstate aac says there are areas where small grains and canola exceeded initial expectations other areas. Not so much but there is still potential for some of the corn and soybeans. Like everybody else. They definitely need more rain. But that being said. I think they're going to be able to salvage commodity fairly okay depending upon when they were planted. What what the conditions were when they were put in in the reproductive state. They definitely need more water. Where at the end of that but it might be enough to help.

You know ninety days ninety ninety degrees several days in a row and just couldn't keep up all the time and while there doesn't seem to be any issues fantasies. You can see the difference between hybrids. Well actually i was really impressed. Tell the pollination isn't in this field and most of the irrigated fields. I think i must have kept up good enough to to do a good job pollination i guess i do see the difference in hybrids a lot more of this year's i drought tolerance Something that maybe on a pivot you'd normally don't see but we're seeing it in here this year and over in douglas.

Care heart has more world weather inc. Senior agricultural meteorologist drew learner. Says the shots of cool air will also bring a chance of moisture we're going to get enough moisture to fix absorb moisture conditions but obviously this is also going to hinder some farming activity periodically. But i think it's really not a bad mix for us for the majority of this two week period. It's not just gonna rain every day and when it doesn't rain it's going to warm up again and we should be able to dry down the soil a little bit. We are going to have our moments though with the cool weather around. You know that. I think we will see very chilly. Day across a good part of north dakota and northwestern parts of minnesota temperatures will be stuck in the sixties of frost. Were found only a few days ago in the canadian prairies. Not expecting that to occur across the northern us planes but this cooler bias. It's around here is certainly a part of that cool. Air mass is to our north. And hopefully he won't come any farther south and we'll actually see the ridge of high pressure beginning to build back up again as we go from friday into the weekend and that should force the warmer air back into the region and pushed all that cool air farther to the north into canada. There is a succession of storms moving across the northern plains. Next week the rain totals in that system will be variable. Learner is concerned however about the long-term forecast in what that could mean for moisture in the region. We will go through this period in september. Where we're going to be fighting these air masses. And i think september our best opportunity for getting a little bit more moisture across the region. I am just not convinced. Though there we're going to get a high enough volume of moisture to fix our deep subsoil moisture situation and the odds are fairly good. It will keep a lot of that with us as we go through.

Even i even learned some of my own language which is something i didn't have and that was like probably the biggest highlight for me. Oh yeah that does sound like a lot of fun. What would you say was the hardest word or the hardest language that you had to learn. Boy well i interviewed terry. We rock When he was nominated for a best indigenous artist of the year. For the junos we did an interview. And i really wanted to make sure that i got Some of his language right. So i think what was the album. Let me see if i can remember new.

Would you say memorable. I mean i had a lovely conversation with. Michael gray is which i thought was like. It was really fun because it felt like. It was right before Rutherford falls came out so right on the edge of him really blowing up for a lot of people You know. I think an indigenous country. We've all known him for years right. Everybody knows him. He's i mean shot. Mom stepmom still talks about seeing him in the reds sisters Years ago as a dancer chief. Big just fine. Don't tell my dad. She thinks he's very fine fine. I was so jealous of you. I'm sure he'll come back and talk. Anytime i'm shedder and it doesn't seem like his career is slowing down at any point. Well that's good news for me. I look forward to that conversation. Were you nervous at all do you. Do you have any moments where you like. I'm gonna have a heart attack right now. I think in the beginning. I think in the beginning definitely. I was like okay. There was so much to learn. It was really like. I felt like i was going back to school for a lot of it Especially in the beginning but it's sort of it unfurled in front of me in a nice sort of organic way as organic as you can be in making radio during covert. Yeah that's a really nice way of saying you flew by the seat of your pants little and rosie and what were you up to this year. What were you doing well as you know. I was pulled away from unreserved to create a show called this place and it was based on the graphic novel. The wonderful graphic novel of the same name. One hundred fifty years retold. So what they did is they took One hundred fifty years of canadian history and gave that time to indigenous story so we heard about heroes battles chhaya mps tribulations. All beautiful elements of storytelling. And we really learned how resilient and how much we resist and how much we reclaim and how much we are still so much part of this. This place that we call canada so is just a real privilege and an honor to be able to take these beautiful stories off the page. Because it's a graphic novel and turn it into audio and you know for a while. I was like what was i thinking. I'm insane to do this. But it was a really great journey and we came out with ten very powerful powerful stories two of which we're going to share a the show today. Because i just can't get enough of the spotlight. No that's great. I i caught some of it. And i have to say it is really fantastic so i am looking for to catch up on the rest of it and listening to the rest of the show today. Well thank you so much again for keeping my My seat warm and my audience entertained. I'm sure they gave you lots of love. There's such a loving audience. I've missed them. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job unreserved. It was a pleasure hearing you and now get the heck outta here aren't will you have have a have a great show and have a great season and i'll i'll see around the halls absolutely. That's better mike. Jek care jack. T music check dodd. Say i need buju. Hello and welcome. This is unreserved on. Cbc radio one. I'm rosanna dear. Child it is good to be back. I'm so excited for our new season but before we go forward we need to go back way back like a hundred and fifty years back today. Highlights from this place you'll hear. Some lesser known moments in our shared story called canada and learn about indigenous peoples who shaped the course of history in this place starting in eighteen. Sixty five with anne banner. Tyne this no nonsense. May t- woman took a stand. That inspired our resistance johnson. It's october eighteen. Sixty eight canada is one year old. Manitoba is still two years from becoming carded. The dominion and what is now winnipeg is still red. River built up from the muddy waters of the red in his cinnabon rivers the red river settlement is the gateway to the west and to indigenous people the heart of turtle island horse drawn carriages and red river. Carts squeaky wheels viper room on dirt roads scottish english and french traders and settlers mix with first nations and peoples anne a mateen woman and her husband andrew band own a shop here in red river. They often stroll the settlements main street. My dear any the new comers are nothing to worry about. they're just young men seeking adventure laugh at their ignorance. If you want andrew but they are making a mockery of our respectability and making a fortune off our backs. I just don't trust them. You don't trust anyone my love. It's what makes you such a fine business woman i do. I trust my family. I trust my community is just these thieves thinking everything is for the taking and casting aside till there's nothing left. What about the future of our children. Today it's market day red river on a busy street and andrew meet a familiar face. Zet is that young louis. Louis louis boy. I heard you back how you've grown dear louis. Tell me how is your mother. She is well. Madame hits been hard year but our family has their health. I'm glad to hear it. You tell her she should come visit us. It's been too long since i've seen her in town. And how are you getting on at home. There is always work to be done on. The land. red river must feel small after all those years in morale. I am happy to be back with my family and in the country of my heart but farming does not come as naturally to me as i did to my father. That is not your fault. My boy it's been a bad year all around. It's been such a hard few years the meighan so many ruined crops. It's a hard time. I fear it will be a long winter for many. I am hoping to make the christmas. Get together that andrew and i host the best one yet we can get all the newcomers and they're canadian friends to help our were neighbors and enjoy some red river hospital. You tireless any anything for a party. We need to do what we can for one. Another things can't go on like they have been. That's for sure. Did you hear about that road. They're building all the way from lake of the woods. Stay here maybe that will mean good paying jobs that are young men can support their families bringing in canadians from ottawa. To do that work. There won't be many opportunities for our local boys. A sign of things to come. I think more canadians immigrate here every day. Now that confederation has taken hold in the east prime minister. Mcdonald's sites are set on us here in the north west. He won't stop not until he gets his railway. That's for certain may not be canadians. But we are not permissible luck. The people who command themselves we are also made t. matter no more than savages to some time might come when we need more than hope. But we've been here longtime ks. Generations can do is honor our lands and our homes. Let us at least hope are your listening to unreserved on. Cbc radio one sirius xm and native voice one today. We're playing highlights of this place a cbc podcast based on the graphic novel. Anne of red river is about a formidable may t- woman who was the muse for louis realities resistance. It's november eighteen. Sixty eight charles. Mayor paymaster for the road build has arrived from antero. He is loud cocky and racist. He and his canada. I crowd draw. Annie's ir andrew assures her that the newcomers will get line but anti laments that they mocked the t- and are nothing but trouble. She would soon be proven right from the desk. Ov- charles may and accounts of the half of red river after staying at the dutchman's hotel. I couldn't stand it any longer and headed to dr schultz for a few days. The change was a relief. I assure you from the racket of the motley crowd of half breeds playing billiards and drinking. They are everywhere here in red river. Many wealthy people are married to half breed. Women you see who having no coat of arms but told him to look back to make up for the deficiency by fighting the backs of their white sisters the white sisters fall back upon their whiteness whilst the husband's treat each other with desperate courtesies and hospitality with view of filthy lucre in the background. The country is great inexhaustible inconceivably rich farming here is a pleasure there is no till in it and all who do farm are comfortable and some wealthy the half breeds are the only people here who are starving. Five thousand of them have to be fed this winter and it is their own. They won't farm. As for the farmers scotch english and french. not one of them requires relief. It's not long before mayors durant makes it to the benetton breakfast table. The half breeds are the only people here who are starving. Five thousand of them have to be fed this winter and it is their own fault. They won't farm. As for the farmers scotch english french. Not one of them requires relief. High doesn't sound like late breakfast reading any this is from an op. Ed published back east. Such damn life is charles. Marie think he is anyways. Just a young man trying to make a name for himself as all it's nonsense meaningless meaningless. This is in the toronto daily globe city of over fifty thousand people who will have to take his word about us. Canada i boys they have no real power. They so they resort to petty troublemaking. I won't stand for it. No one can possibly take him seriously. The canadians will. They don't know us. They will think this drivel is true then they will come here in droves. Is this what they think of us. Is this how it's going to be. I won't have it. What will you do any albeit our store. When mayor comes in. I'll show him what happens when you tell lies about the teach morning benetton then say good morning. I'll be in my office when mr charles. Marie comes in for his papers. You let me know yes ma'am. He knows mayor's words will have consequences. Many eyes and ears are trained on the red river looking for any excuse to descend upon her homeland. The settlers are insensitive at best hostile at worst mayor has arrived man. How dare you write these. Despicable lies about us yourself woman. only right. What i see is the truth about you people truth. A- show you truth on the very streets of you doing are you mad. Stop hitting me. Charles mayor feels the sting of annie's anger at the end of her horse. Whip it echoes through the dusty streets and a crowd gathers some laugh others jere and soon the familiar figure of louis real himself appears of the back of the rock has seen. Hey what's going on here. Oh hello louis seems. Mayor is feeling the wrath of any tines horse whip. This is what happens when you disrespect. Women of red river kim much now get the hell out. Scoundrel guy us any is right. How dare that man speak about the may. Not this way. Perhaps i was destined to return to red river after all. I have much to do and more to learn to help my people. Anne of red river is the first episode of this place sharing stories of indigenous heroes battles triumphs and traditions. I'm rosanna dear. Child catharina vernet wrote anne of red river. She's also the author of the award winning novel of the break. And the graphic series. A girl called eco. She joins us to share more about anti bandon. Welcome catharina thank you for having me. Thank you for joining us. We certainly got this book off to a bank. More crack of the whip as the case may be great. Aw i love that story it is. It's a great great story beautiful beautiful depiction of anti-obama tyne tell me. How did you find her. Where did you find her. I was doing research into my graphic novel series. A girl called echo and just diving through all this golden age of the meaty history in the eighteen fifties and sixties. And she just kinda comes up. She just like rises as the shining light. She had a very interesting life She was the daughter of andrew. Mcdermott and kind of grew up. In kind of affluence She had a lot of power like south power and just like a lot of control over her her life and then she does. This just takes charles merited school. And i love that. I love that story so much when we came up with the the story book idea and catherine approach me with it. I immediately said. I want this time line like i want the i wanna talk about anne. Like she was just the reason i got on board. She is very exciting to me. And what was it about her or her story. That really drew you in. Why her not only heard not only is she like this amazing woman who i mean. Aside from horse whipping a holes in the middle of the street she also was this incredibly community oriented organizer. She was a shopkeeper she worked very much alongside her husband and worked for her father before him and she organized so many different things in the is this was a time of great famine so she organized a lot of drives to feed people feed all kinds of people who are living in red river. She was one of the instrumental fund raisers for the first hospital. That ever happened in winnipeg like she was just a really empowered woman who knew her place in in the world and knew how much she was worth. And i. I was really attracted to that. I also really loved that. She represented mateen people in red river. Pre-candidate coming in where it was really known as the golden age of the matey history. Like three quarters of the population of red river at the time was not would not only the majority but we were in control of a lot of things. I liked that she represented that time. You know In such a great way and she was just this kick ass anti like. I really love all around When you say anti what do you mean by that. What role does anti play in may cultures. I really think of anti and i mean everybody has a different definition anti for me. An anti is a person who is an older woman probably You know we were all catholic over there so she was probably biological aunt too many many little kids but also she was just a general anti to to the community. And antea someone. Who takes care of you and antea someone who you give respect and one of the things. I made sure. I really wanted to put in. The story is that she was an anti like a community. Anti like this to lure rio. And i think she definitely influenced him and what happened shortly. Thereafter Now the exchange district in winnipeg is of course a national historic site. These days with terra cotta heritage buildings and warehouses and hip restaurants and boutiques. But take back to eighteen Sixty at. I know you did a lot of research in what the red river settlement would have looked like in those days. Can you paint us a picture. from what i understand. And i i always feel like history is incredibly overwhelming. So i feel like. I have a tiny little snapshot of a very big hole. Main street was basically where main street is now. Only of course it was a big large dirt road. The center point of the entire settlement was fort garry which was at the end of main street along the river. So kind of where broadway and main street are now kind of the opening corner of the the fort which was huge and and went over but is several city blocks now back when this happened. The banner time store was roughly around. Where banner time avenue is now which is really the heart of the. What is the exchange district now and this happened on shopping day so this is when everyone kind of came in. It was just this bustling community. There wasn't any bridges at the time. But there is a lot of fairies that with fareed over you know people probably pulled up on their canoes. There is times of of wagons red river carts so like you know those squeaky wheels were probably heard all over and they were so loud. Those wheels are so loud. Lots of horses kinda going here and there and a lot of the people that came for shopping day didn't live very close. Anyone who wasn't all that well off lived quite far away by comparison so over the river and saint boniface or or north towards like seven oaks area. So yeah it was just like there was a few stores like brick buildings There's also this really cool old looking saloon. I kind of looks like something out of like santa fe new mexico. It just was this like i don't know what that was like mud walls but it looks like an old pueblo style kind of saloon and that's where everyone everyone absolutely everyone drank. There was cockfights in the dirt floor. Kind of thing. So that wasn't very far off from where we were either so just a rowdy place now as you said. Historically there is like lots going on. Canada this canada i the the railroad excetera Why would anne's actions on that day. Be the spark for louis ri-als rebellion. Well actually the first ever political quote unquote political action. That he did he come back from like montreal. By way of minnesota around this time in in late eighteen sixty eight so when this happened went. Anne horsewhipped charles mirror in the middle of the street. That was february and the the resistance happened in in the fall in september one of the first actions of as a political leader he was elected as secretary of the council was to write a letter to a montreal newspaper. Basically depicting the story of what happened with anne and charles marr. Basically telling the world that was montreal and canada at the time what happened and why charles marr is not the victim of you know some crazy savage beating but actually he did wrong. He called out the red river. Women and the red with the women responded so that was actually the first letter the editor that was signed l. Are and i should say it was signed alar and it was never properly officially attributed to lure al. But everyone believes that it was lure real and it was his first act of of political involvement which happened like literally six months before the red resistance began in earnest. So really i think he was definitely well aware of it. I think he was probably on the sidelines. Cheering anne on. And i think he definitely saw that ability to fight back that ability to see that this treatment was wrong and the power to do something about it. I think absolutely it. It influenced him undoubtedly. I would say undoubtedly and do you know shaver face the consequences for those actions or what happened to anti. I've never heard anything about consequences. I know that shortly during the red river resistance which was when the mitzi soldiers overtook the fort to try to negotiate their way into canada rather than just be sold off like chattel around not time andrew. Her husband became quite sick. I believe it was two perky laos's so sometime in early eighteen seventy she went to scotland with him and their children so that he could recuperate from his illness She did live to be a very old woman. She came back to by river. I think after the resistance and after the trouble she wasn't involved directly she lived for a time in scotch on shoes buried in the colonial cemetery. Here in winnipeg and she looked into the nineteen hundreds. I believe it's nineteen o four so she did get to see her grandchildren. Grow up I don't think she's separate any consequences other than you know. Probably just a really great reputation. And i don't think anyone or after that i mean. Just imagine those kids. Hey they're just like oh came on whatever whatever you say yes right away well. What an extraordinary woman she was. What are you. What would you like readers of the graphic novel or listeners of this place podcast to take away from the story of anti ballantyne for me any just represented standing up for yourself. I don't advocate violence or horse being people in the street as much as it's a great story at such also a quote unquote wild west story. But i always think that it's amazing when people stand up for unjust treatment And stand up to people who are talking smack about their their younger younger friends. That's the kind of thing she represents to me. Just standing up for yourself and your your people catharina. Vermont is the author of anti of red river.

The oji cree people still lived by their own laws and customs then but that to change. My name is wasser copy. The ogi mao. That chief is known as so i now geese eko abou the man who stands in the southern sky. I don't want my story to be about him. But our fates are intertwined. It's the early nineteen. Hundreds canada is negotiating treaties with first nations. Which will forever disrupt indigenous way of life deepen the boreal forest northwestern ontario. The oji cree people still live by their own laws and customs but like a sudden winter storm. Change is coming. The hunger to feed the for trade means game like beaver is scarce a long cold. Winter makes hunting and trapping even harder. The people are starving driven mad some turn to cannibalism. It is said that red clouds in the sky. Warn of a terrible spirit. Some say it's heart is made of ice. It's cry so terrible. It leaves people unconscious. Its teeth shards of ice. That sound like a frozen lake. It cracks and shifts on its head razor-sharp antlers of a beast. The window terrorizes its victims and here in oji cree territory belief in this evil spirit universal here in the community of sandy lake. The people use traditions and ceremony to keep it at bay. Two brothers jack. And joseph fiddler are known as the window killers so i know dc. Go up. I was also a healer. His english name was jack fiddler. He was respected and feared could dream of cures and communicate with the force could summon animals to feed the people the people offered him tobacco tools and clothes and he prayed to gish manifesto jack and his brother pace one joseph fiddler were known to defeat the window. I too fell victim to that spirit as a window go. I would be the last to face the brothers. Jack and joseph i be the one to destroy them before i became the white eyed. Wendy go. I was wasa copy. Kway this is my story. Our community was starving. Husband may knob them. And i took are sung out into the bush to try and fend for ourselves but there was nothing of substance to feed us.

It was van that the red clouds rolled in bringing with them. Vicious spirit of the wind will the pain of losing in album and the hunger. I feel eating me from the inside. Out is nothing compared to icy breath. That responds in my ear will help you. How do yourself. I feel the spirit of it. Went to go and turn my body and taste the flesh of might dead husband with newfound strength awasa copy quay and her son make it back to the village. The dogs growl and snarl as she walks by recognizing what she has become community. Members whispered that something is just not quite right about her but following their custom was accomplished way soon. Remarried to thomas fiddler the nephew of zaghawa. No easy go gobbo. The wind dicko killer. Winter turned into spring. Spring turned into summer. I tried to hide the spirit causing my sickness copy but it was getting harder. Copy here people you are. They will be dead. The wind ago is relentless. Terrorizing was a copy way day and night slowly. Slowly it takes over what spirit she had left. I thought it was a night air. But i was covered in blood vomited shards of ice and laughter. That woke me was coming from deep inside but it was an injury. I was outside the longhouse. The dirt good dog was a copy. Quay sickness does not go unnoticed to her horror jack fiddler and his brother joseph or summoned and they drag her into. The woods helped me tired to this tree. I prayed to the magnitudes for guided shake ten. We need to make the rope tight around her neck. All hey for this. I won't make you know her. Rumors of what the fiddler brothers doing. Reach the attention of the rcmp. They hear the brothers are murdering anyone who is feverish delirious they practice black magic and have killed fourteen people including wasa copy klay jack. Fiddler joseph fiddler. I represent the k- the great father. You have been accused of murder. We will hold a trial at norway house that you can defend yourself. I haven't killed a human. I only do work. The community needs jack. Fiddler carefully explains that they never take a human life. The work they do is for the safety of the community and done within the laws and customs of the people but their words fall on deaf years. The police promise that brothers will get a fair trial but fairness in the white man's law shorts ply in september nineteen o seven. The window killers are jailed. Rather how long do you think they'll keep us walked up here. I don't know the five return home. They will come to me again and bring more laws more trouble. What are you going to do. Manitou will be my judge not these strangers and beyond my lands. Someone is coming. It's time to gather would. While the prisoners gather firewood jack fiddler slips away deep into the forest. He will not be judged by the white man's law instead. I told you outcome suit eats my hunter and yourself makes them use tight so i can watch the life drain from you slowly. Waiting in the shadows the wind ago takes much pleasure and watching our nogi. Zico gobbo di but one brother remains her. Dark work is not done dead. But joseph will still alive withering away in the stone house finding game for the trial begin. Spear was already broken is already dead a week later. Jack's brother joseph stands trial.

No our win now whites nor new rate normal. Who took the rope at strangled. The woman jack and his brother joseph fiddler. What became a her body.

No pagan belief can justify you will be hanged from the neck until you are dead and they got mercy. Odd your soul. How does you law find the difference between a murderer and a death sentence here. How is it death sentence different from what we did. Joseph fiddler is locked away in stony mountain institution where he becomes very ill.

Joseph feller died from sickness before he could be hanged in a. You're listening to unreserved today. Encore presentation of the podcast. This place sharing stories of indigenous heroes battles triumphs and traditions. I'm rosanna dear child. You just heard the wind ago story. Red clouds born and raised in winnipeg authored. Jen storm is a chip away from the kuching. First nation in northwestern ontario at the tender age of fourteen. Jen wrote her. First book deadly loyalties. She also wrote the graphic novel fire. Starters welcome jin yeah thanks for having me well first of all our big question is what or who is a window. Well i think windows have kind of multiple interpretations. And i think the most interesting thing is. There's an air of selfishness always kind of attached to them and in the context that i wrote it was during the for trade era and during the harshest winters during the harshest of times when people were starving and could literally starve to death. And i think that's a time that we don't have to relate to and because like these communities weren't communities because it was just a good thing to be a community but it was very much so like needed like you had to. You needed each other to survive. He had to be able to count on one another to survive so somebody acting in a way that was unpredictable. That was selfish. That was not community. Minded is a danger to all. So i think the term window go is a way to kind of label that spirit in a way so the windows that i wrote about were cannibalistic. And there's a way that that can really affect you mentally. And but i also believe that in today's society at that we don't have those kinds of windows but that spirit is very much still alive in our society and might even be more prevalent in the society. We are in today because the way we operate now is so individualistic and this just the way that society has become and it's like almost a struggle to keep route with community and still be successful. They're the one kind of story we have or like warning we have. That's not just a standalone spirit. It's the spirit that needs humans in order to manifest and so windows are human nature but they have this ugly spirit attached to them. And that's the part. I think is really kind of interesting about them. Is that the humanity of it. All i guess now the character wa south she is based on an actual person. Tell us about about this persa She there's not much said about her to be honest lake in the book which i brought with me. I'm killing the shaman. And it was a story about people from sandy lake. And how they kind of come to know the canadian justice system mainly as the point of the story but the undercurrent of it is very cultural and talking about how cultures are very different from one another although saying but this woman There was not much about her other than she was the last window to be killed by jack fiddler and the one that He went to prison for so why. Then why did you want to tell us. What was it about her her situation. That drew you her point of view to me. Because james stevenson and thomas fiddler told this story very well from the male perspective as a story. That's already been told. You know what i mean. So i didn't want to retell a story from the same perspective for one But also i believe that we've all realized that female voice is missing from history indigenous. Female voices missing almost entirely and in a lot of cases like even as i was reading through books and lake online like a lot of times. They don't even name women that are full photographed or rift like referred to like. You don't know much about them at all. Like what their clan is. What their quotes are What their individual at like. Individuality is it's kind of like a group of ojibway women from northern plains. Insert you don't even and it's and then like the but the men had more voice because they were representing right which is unfortunate for everyone that no one asked women. But that's happened to be the case so i found it important to us female voice in this retelling but also i wanted to use the windows perspective because it's always missing. We like even in our own stories. It best serves to vilnai's goes because we're trying to warrant against terrible behavior and we're trying to warn against anything that's anti society or something that's like anti your fellow man because that's against our survival so we vilnai's windows non-indigenous people vilnai's windows. Obviously like everyone was on the same page about windows goes but because windows are born human. I was kind of like well. There's a story there too right like they don't start off that way. Usually you're not born that way. Usually so that's why. I kind of wanted to take the window perspective. Because they've been so vilnai's d- what commentary lesson are you making about the justice system and how it has treated indigenous culture believes like like this one. Justice serves the community. It is built it. When canada was down here building their own laws for settler life and all those other things and what makes sense to them in a very large community and they go up north or they hear word. Come down from up north being like hey like this. Old chief is killing people in his community. We probably do something. And they're like whole like holy crap. We should go up there and do something. We need to save these people from themselves. Like this is insane and it's just like this whole perspective is different because you're coming from a totally different world view near coming from a different life and you don't understand like that even that party said earlier about you know if somebody's unpredictable if somebody's acting selfishly if somebody is you know trying to eat grandma of leading to stop them yes i would recommend also so like. Let's say you're out in the middle of you know the bush where like there's not really that many neighbors like you got to like everyone's got their justice system. Everyone has their own society including us now. as canada. we have our own justice. We have our own society. We have our own rules and social norms and expectations. And so who are we to go into another country to go into another place because we're looking through our own is being like that's weird but we don't have the whole picture. Why do you Think that it's important. To share these stories. From an indigenous perspective indigenous stories about heroes and triumphs and tribulations. Why do you think it's important. Share those stories with all canadians. That i think it's important for us to share those stories because we haven't like in our generation like you and i and the people who are writing nowadays. I think come from a place where we didn't have those. We didn't have those stories us growing up now or now that we are storytellers and sharing. We know and sharing stories and we get to be that we had to put all that out there so that other students can or students young people. Everyone including people like that grew up in our errand. Didn't get to see that but also did other work now. They get to see that. And i think that's important for us to do all of us to do and we are so glad that you are one of the people that are sharing these gifts with us. Thank you so much for your time today.

Well Grounded - Episode 3
"Welcome to well-grounded this is randy conan with the red river farm network. This is jason minke from acres chairs. This podcast brings together experts from the world of agriculture and real estate. We'll talk about farmland values industry trends and the economy in this edition. Well-grounded our guest. Joe man is a regional outreach. Director at the federal reserve bank of minneapolis man's primary responsibilities involved tracking several sectors including agriculture of the ninth district. Economy in whichever's minnesota north dakota south dakota montana in portions of wisconsin and michigan. Each name. mann publishes eneg culture condition survey today. We'll talk about this year survey which was published in mid-may. Welcome joe welcome. Good to be here so to start with joe. I thought it would be helpful for our listeners. If you could provide a background of the study may be what it entails. How long the fed has has done this study in in this year. Yeah happy to do so So i actually just start things off. I would a little hesitant to call it a study because that makes it sound a little bit more scientific than it actually is. This is a a survey that we do of agricultural credit conditions in the night federal reserve district and you mentioned already the states that we cover We include minnesota. North dakota south dakota and then also montana and portions of wisconsin and michigan. So it's a survey of agricultural bankers in our region and a few important qualifications on that It's a it only includes banks that are federal reserve members so without getting into the details of how banks are regulated a lot of our agricultural lenders a across rural regions of the united states are state chartered banks. they're not necessarily federal reserve members So this is kind of a subset of your community. Banks in rural communities that do agricultural ending and we're only serbian goes banks that are members of ours that are heavily concentrated in agricultural lending so it ends up not being a lot of banks in fact For the most recent survey we had sixty seven respondents for this five six eight region that we cover and And that's kind of the spirit of it. We call it a survey but it's really more accurately described as a poll and we do it on a quarterly basis. So we do this four times. A year The one that we're talking about today just came out in may and that covered the first quarter of the year we conduct surveys at the end of the quarter after it's over so the period that this survey covers is january through march but survey itself was actually conducted throughout the month of april. And we just released it here at the beginning of. May we ask about what happened over. The previous three months in what expectations are for the coming three months. And like i said we do this survey four times a year And it's a great way of sort of taking the pulse of agriculture in our region. Which of course is is as one of the most important Sectors in the economy and our part of the country and even though it's not really a scientific random sample of a survey we think of it more as being kind of a panel of experts that we're checking in with on a regular basis who really know their communities they really know agriculture in their areas through their clients and they can tell us about how their clients are doing in terms of their finances and in terms of some of the other farm indicators. Such an unusual year last year going into this year than twenty twenty one crappier. What's what's the pulse. What what are farmers. How are things looking right now. Things are looking pretty good And of course. I don't need to tell your your your listeners. About what's happened over the last decade or so an agriculture. It's been a pretty wild ride. Of course we began the last decade kind of riding a high wave of of commodity. prices Those those prices eventually kinda came back to earth and have been Pretty low for for really since really since about two thousand. Fourteen saw the peak in twenty thirteen two thousand fourteen depending on which commodity. You're looking at And so really for the last five six years this surveys consistently been the respondents have been consistently telling us that they're seeing reduced farm incomes more financial stress on farm households and that's reflected in lower rates of repayment on farm loans. And a lot a lot more demand for loans but that's reversed over the last six months so really When we when we did our when we did our fourth quarter survey and twenty twenty which was released in january and really the the quarter prior to that but especially over the last six months we started to see some reversal in that and especially in this most recent survey this first quarter survey that covered january through march. The lenders overwhelming majority of them told us they saw an increase in farm incomes It was It was it was about eighty seven percent in almost all of the remainder told us that farm incomes held steady relative. To a year earlier we only had a very small percentage of them. tell us incomes. Were down so strong farm incomes going into twenty twenty one going into the to the planting season Sort of coincident with that lower rates have demand for farm loans. Farmers aren't as cash-strapped at other agricultural producers. not as cash-strapped so not as much demand For for for loans and And higher repayment rates on farm loans and a number of other sort of financial indicators. Showing some positive developments. I as well as As well as the land values kind of an interesting change from the recent trend which we can talk about in a moment the let's transition right into that. So what did you see for. Cash rents Let's start there and then land values in north dakota and minnesota so looking at cash. Rents we saw. We saw growth in in in cash rents in the first quarter for land in our region particularly for for non irrigated farmland on average across all the states in our region we saw an increase of about seven point seven percent year-over-year in cash prevailing cash rents on non-irrigated land. And i do want to stress that this is covering our entire nights. Federal reserve district region. We do break out some responses by state but as i started out mentioning the number of respondents. That we have across our region is pretty small to begin with so once you start slicing and dicing by state it gets even smaller. But just for the sake of it. I'll i'll mention You know. I think that the the states that probably your listeners are most interested in are gonna be minnesota north dakota south dakota and Same pattern within each of those states. So as i mentioned non irrigated land rents up seven. Point seven percent for the region Exact same percent change for north dakota in our survey among the respondents north dakota's and again average across the state. So it's probably gonna vary quite a bit. You're comparing the red river valley to western north dakota You're gonna you're gonna probably see quite a bit of differentiation. But we don't get into that level of geographic detail turning to south dakota rents. Were up three point. One percent and minnesota up seven point one percent again year-over-year at in april compared to when a year earlier when when the respondents were we're taking the survey just just an internet per second joe so one of the things that i mentioned when you and spoke to line up. This podcast is I put out a newsletter twice year in the process of writing my spring newsletter. Right now and i just think it's important for listeners. To know that you know this. This is just a pulse. But what you're saying. Is it really shows that there's optimism out there right now harming me. That's typically the trend when you see higher higher cash rents especially nobody wants to pay more rent but everybody wants more. Ground right yeah. It's interesting actually so no. I would absolutely inaccurate territories. Ation of the overall results of this survey is to say that we saw. We saw a lot of optimism and again this has been This has been a pattern or trend that we've seen over the last couple of survey periods but especially really jumped in the first quarter of this year. And i mentioned. I mentioned those income figures. Just the comments that were getting from From from lenders as well where they're just sort of typing in their their tax responses and telling us That they're seeing really really strong conditions in their areas A few a few sort of more cautionary comments and we can get into those in a moment but overall the sense that i'm getting from the comments in our shirley responses as well as just outside of the survey just my anecdotal conversations with with with folks in the industry is that is that things are looking up. You know we had the the previous few years. There was You know. Obviously we your. Your listeners are quite familiar with the the government aid programs that were put in a largely in response to the trade war going back a few years ago. Those market facilitation payments some of those other programs. That were really helpful. Those happened to still be in effect for a lot of twenty twenty. And now what we've seen over the last six months. Is this rally in especially in the prices for the core crops produced in our region corn soybeans wheat and then also more recently a little bit for some of those some of those livestock prices as well. Those are all just reflecting in higher incomes. And then i would be remiss not to mention a generally pretty strong pretty good yields strong harvests over twenty twenty as you mentioned randi And all that translating into having a lot of crops at rank to market and and Pretty strong prices for those so. It's so it's a pretty good combination of factors. And i think pretty pretty welcome among producers in the region Given what's given what's gone on in over the previous half decade or so. Is it unusual to see the move this quick after a good year like that or is common. I wouldn't say it's that unusual. I mean. I think you know we've as i said. We've kind of been in a lull for the past For the past six years really and so given that we saw pretty quick reversal and again over the last Over the last couple of years a lot of comments about how incomes would have been down a lot more had it not been for government payments. So we know that a lot of those assistance programs were were a shot in the arm. For at least for certain agricultural producers are certain parts of our region and so actually. I think you know if in y- absence of those it might have been any you know maybe an even more extreme term but that's just speculation on my part. I think yeah. I think given given how quickly prices turned around starting late last year. And heading into this year It's not unusual to see a relatively quick change in sentiment again turning to some of those Some of the comments that that respondents were submitting there were some some words of. I wouldn't say caution But uncertainty about whether or not what we're seeing right now is going to be sustained and then also i would. I can't go without mentioning The the development of pretty severe drought conditions in parts of our region. Not necessarily so much in the red river valley although we've started to see some dry conditions in the red river valley but particularly in western. North dakota North west south dakota and then heading heading toward that That golden triangle region of montana. Pretty extreme drought conditions in those in those areas right now and we did hear some comments from From the from the lenders responding to our survey that they are concerned about that. And they're worried about they're worried about their producers in their area. If folks looking at holding land i think that's good information for them to know that. That cash register trending up when you're looking at redoing your leases Let's look at land values if somebody's looking at selling in in the short term potentially with the tax law changes in in limbo. What's talk about land values. Yes a land values one of the things that we ask about on On a quarterly basis. Every time we do this survey we just ask lenders. What's an acre of good land in your area going for and that gives us a nice baseline because we get a sort of a per acre Per acre average that we can take a across our states in our region and then also because we survey the same wenders Every quarter we can compare just looking at the folks who responded in Both of the most recent quarter in the same order a your earlier. We can get a nice apples to apples. Comparison of what they told us. Land was going for a year ago versus what it's going for now and what we saw in the first quarter was a fairly sudden spike in in land values and again. I'll mention some some signs of this prior to doing this survey that we'd seen in in previous surveys we've seen some Small small upward movement in land prices again just looking at the survey averages but what we saw for the first quarter survey results. This year was across the ninth. Federal reserve district A nearly seven percent increase year over year and the value of an acre of non-irrigated farmland is six point eight percent was the actual figure and again. That's an average for all the states in our region. Turning to turning to the central three states north dakota we saw five point six percent increase in non-irrigated land south dakota seven point four percent increase and minnesota actually came in at ten point. Three percent increase in In the value of non irrigated land I do wanna mention we ask about non-irrigated farmland and the prevailing price for that. We do also ask about irrigated land and we asked about ranch in pasture land as well. Those values not up as much in fact on average across our region urinated land values. Actually the average went down slightly year-over-year and pastureland came in exactly flat Same same year over year of value but those non-irrigated land values really jumped and a quite a bit of acceleration relative to the Sort of it's sorta sideways movement. We've seen over previous years. We talked about net farm income. Obviously that stronger Another huge factor with with these land values going stronger would be interest rates Looking at your information for the last three years going back to the second order of of nineteen or just past couple years Looks like we're at four point four fixed at four point two percent for variable on your survey and that's got to be the lowest in in a long long time or forever. What are your. What's your take there. Yeah the the the reading in the most recent quarter Was was it was downward movement yet again in an interest rates. And that's been that's been consistent since as you mentioned early. Twenty nineteen was actually the peak that we saw most recently in those farm interest rates. And they've been moving down sometimes faster sometimes. Slower over over the period Over the period since so just to put some numbers on that we saw Average average fixed rates for operating loans at four point. Seven percents Over over the first quarter of this year average variable rates at four point five percents and again both of those values down relative to the quarter previously. And it's the same story for For machinery and intermediate loans and for real estate loans as well all of those categories are down both for fixed and variable rate loans. And some of the more than others. We saw bigger downward movement. I'll mention in the previous survey in the fourth quarter of twenty twenty relative to to the to the third quarter before it but we did see those kicked out once again over this period. Dc this sustaining or stabilizing. You know. I wish. I had a better crystal ball on for a longer period for when it comes to this survey the only sort of outlook we ask about is is the the next quarter. So which is the one. We're in right now so again. Just to sort of put some some time parameters on this. We conducted this survey in april asking boo backward-looking about the first quarter of this year. And then we asked what their expectations were for the second quarter and overall those expectations for the second order for this sort of planting season and into into summer growing season were positive. not quite as positive but just to kind of put a put some numbers on that Close to seventy five percent of the lenders in our survey expected farm incomes to increase more In in the second quarter of this year a relative to the second quarter a year earlier these are all year over year. Comparisons making here So so three quarters of the lenders expecting our incomes to come up. Almost all of the rest were expecting steady incomes not necessarily increasing but not going down. Hardly anyone said they expected incomes to decrease so not quite the same level that told us in incomes increased over the first quarter but pretty good relative to To the recent history so yeah the. The outlook overall for For the sector at least through the second quarter when we ask about was pretty positive a little bit more moderate than Than what we saw in the first quarter but still positive overall. And as i mentioned there were some concerns expressed within the comments about drought and then also just kind of about the the amount of volatility that we've seen in the sector and specifically within with commodity prices recently. And whether or not this rally. We're seeing right now. Is going to be sustainable as we wrap this up any other information from the research that you did that you think would be helpful for landowners No i think that's You know. I think that really covers it. You know it's all we can really say is sort of what happened Relative to a year earlier. I do want to stress again just to put you know a little bit of context around these numbers that it's a relatively small number of people that are responding to the survey. We do like to think of them as fairly knowledgeable. Obviously these are folks who are accepting land as collateral for lending so they have a pretty good idea about what what land values in their area are going for. And i should mention that the you know the more the more Sort of gold standard numbers that the usda puts out on an annual basis. Those are gonna come out. I think in august. That's when they usually come out. We tend to track pretty well with those over time so what we tend to see in our quarterly surveys Tends to correspond pretty closely. With what the usda finds when they release those numbers So that's really. That's really kind of where i would leave it. We're seeing pretty low. Interest rate environment higher incomes less borrowing. Those are all good things. I think you know going back to the early part of the last decade when there were there were some people in the industry sort of expressing concerns about whether farmland values were a bubble whether it was a sustainable sort of situation They're you know one of the things we started paying a lot of attention to was was leverage rates and You know in comparing to that nine thousand nine hundred farm crisis period. We just didn't see we didn't see producers leverage themselves up as much during that boom period in the in the early part of the two thousand ten when land values were really soaring so they weren't really borrowing against those really elevated land values so even though conditions have been difficult for the last few years they went into that a lot of our producers went into that period pretty well positioned of course. They've eaten down a lot of that working capital so it's a good scientists some reversal in incomes. And start to see. Hopefully folks build build back up the those cash stores.

Credit services has their daily forms going on at eleven thirty here on our stage. Bobby sondrio is with us. putting on a retirement and estate planning session today. Bobby give me an idea. What what's going to be on the on the program. Well rest tweeden and myself plan to present Just an overview of the tools that we have to use in estee planning transition planning and retirement planning as well as do a flight. Update on the Upcoming proposals and maybe have some more answers on that Depending on what the legislation's doing certainly we know. There's lots of questions with the what's going on in dc and the scott esme implications for for retirement and estate. Planning as well. I would guess correct. Yes it will very much affect The the plans that we have already existing in the plans. We do going forward if some of these things Do pass we touch on that but Give a great overview of the the tools that we have in our toolbox per se to help with all of the things that go into your state and transition plan on the farm so when we think about that transition. How soon should we be having that conversation or do we have to wait. Two are close to retirement age. Never too soon I think the younger generation is looking to have that conversation sooner than the older generation is generally For sure at least maybe five years three years if we have to Before retirement than transition should start. But honestly years before that i think it's great to lay the groundwork and so we know where we're going and have the time to adjust if we need to look inside the planners to box retirement and estate planning with abc country farm credit services obvious andrea. And russ tweet and we'll be on our stage this morning again. That's today here at the big iron farm show. thanks don. let's go over to make an overby has more from big iron in this message.

This is carol heart reporting from the big iron farm. Show in west fargo. It's the second day of the show and joining us. As pioneer cede territory. Manager levi levi. Thanks for joining us. This morning. as harvest begins. What are you hearing about. The crop in north central north dakota majority of my area. Unfortunately this year was in the extreme drought area so we had a lot of smog. Greens get Come off a fair. Amount of the reaction came off The acres are released and they were bailed. Did take this off in the bushels. They were extremely low. The northeast part of my area. They are actually still combine their wheat. They have a decent week route. But the falling numbers Issue is starting to play a factor into their wheat crop. Now so beans. I think are going to Hopefully be a pleasant surprise especially as you go north I live rugby. Actually go north up in that role. Rock lake area over to langdon They've caught Some decent moisture munich areas. Well i mean there's pockets. That are still pretty dry. They didn't catch a lot of rain but There are some pockets in there. That are gonna have an exceptional being dropped for sure. Let's talk a little bit about The canola too. I know canolas had some challenges depending on where you're up at some areas of actually had a pretty good yield speaking with my reps here in rolla Rolette and rock lake areas There wasn't up Pretty good In that twenty five hundred pound area hearing that number quite a bit and actually there's a few quite a few areas that are running above that what farmers need to be thinking about as they plan for twenty twenty two as we look forward to twenty twenty two I would encourage growers to on costs Whether it's Fertilizer crop protection products Even seed i would keep an eye on On what they wanna do and earlier they can make decisions and On some of these products crop protection side or fertilizer for sure if they can be purchasing some of those and taking possession of them on their farms. I do think it's going to be a huge advantage for them. We've been talking with pioneer cede territory. Manager levi heisler.

Especially we've seen the basis turnover where they were needing the grain. They were needing In a bad way For some of the ethanol and some of some of the rails in some really. The river wasn't because of the hurricanes kind of stopped that river traffic. But you know last week. They kind of got filled up. And there's going to be enough new crop coming in that the basis really we saw sixty five cents one day at our local terminal there so You know going into august. The end of august and of the first week of september. It's really hard to get a rally in the corn market. Then you add on the lack of experts in the fear of what's how long they'll be out with that hurricane that really add it to our negative during the grain markets. And then you get a negative report with positive results. I really hope we can see avi bottom out of this. All corn beans and wheat and see something good from here demand to seem like it's been pretty quiet here last month that yeah you haven't seen those flash sales that you wanted You know china's got a big book of corn on right now but that was all from may In so whether it's phase one deals or whether it's true needs that they need in their cattle in their hog Feed or whatever we need to see that demand coming in here and we need to see it pretty quick but there are there. Bargain buyers do they. They wanna buy value. And so maybe this move up. They figured out this could be hopefully harvest low. And maybe they're coming to the market quickly.

We have a couple of export facilities actually at least three export facilities. Now that are operational after the weekend that's three out of ten and they're probably not fully operational either so we're assuming maybe twenty percent of our capacities up and going now after the weekend Other facilities are still to have their power restored and sugerman says there's been strong demand for us soybeans going to china and elsewhere and means basis could get stronger for soybeans moving out of the pacific northwest. We'll certainly in. Usda export inspection report showed that one cargo was soybeans went out to the pacific northwest.
