farmers got for corn.. in october.. was three dollars.. 30 cents a bushel... 24 cents above the september price.. but 28 cents below the year before.. the october price for soybeans was nine dollars 22 cents a bushel.. 26 cents fewer than september.. but 53 cents livestock markets are starting to face a bit of pressure.. and the grains are still going downhill.. "the dominate issue in the grain market is the fundamental level to the top. and by that i mean the large supplies in the u-s, the large supplies in the world are really weighing on the market. we've had some strong chinese buying, in soybeans in the complex over the last several weeks. that seems to be slowing down. the world competition in wheat is really pressing the
wheat for three days in a row and that's been pulling the corn market down so, we're moving lower technically down to support zones."

"really what's happening in the hog market is just large supplies coming at us, continuing to come at us. we think the slaughter's going to run close to five percent over a year ago for the next several weeks. so it just really boils market. the large supplies all adds up to prices coming under pressure " ---- new california legislation puts pressure on the dairy industry.. according to the western united dairymen.. a law requiring livestock operations to reduce methane emissions 40 percent of 2013 levels by 2030.. could have dairy operators leaving the state.. california is the largest milk-producing state.. and its producers are dealing with five years of drought and low milk prices.. regulators are targeting dairy manure.. which counts for about a quarter of the methane emissions.. the state has set aside 50 million dollars to help offset
dairy farms.. but the industry says that won't be enough to help the more than 15 hundred dairy operations in the state. ---- and that wraps up the show for today.. thanks for tuning in.. i hope to see you again next time. ---- we'll post a video every day in the agriculture section of kcrg.com. i'm david geiger with the agribusiness report. trt oc: standard or carp, anglers can always send us a picture of their best catch. we're even open to eels. that's next in this week's edition of big ol fish. stay with tv9. it's ---.
