is estimated at three point nine billion bushels.. down 51 million.. harvested area is down point eight million.. and yield averages are acre.. four hundred forty million bushels. farm price is estimated at a range of eight dollars five cents to nine dollars 44 cents per bushel ---- last week.. governor terry branstad released a proposal extending a 20 year sales tax put in place in 2009.. moving the end date to 2049.. the sales tax helps education infrastructur e.. and that funding would stay at 10 million dollars a year... governor branstad wants the additional income from it to go toward helping the water quality goals of the state. governor branstad has teamed up with a few superintendants from around the state as well as multiple agricultural groups to sway the legislature. the iowa department of agriculture is also looking optimistically at the proposal. "i think it's very important for the ag community to continue to push to say we are engaged. we and our business. we
5:16 am
and we want the state to be engaged alongside of us to help us move forward. iowa is really leading in a lot of the water quality response that's happening out there and trying to learn and do a better job." northey says agriculture will need more resources to make sure they are increasing the adoption of water quality practices. ---- the big production report tuesday made a quick stir in the market.. but it looks like it will return to a sideways movement according to market analyst mike seery.. when i talked to him yesterday.. he added it will likely trend this way until april.. "it wasn't much of a surprise, the corn market, which i did get short once again, yesterday after the rally, around the 3.59 level. i'm not risking much around five cents." "corn was up a about around six cents yesterday up about a penny today. i still think lower prices are ahead. the problem with corn was it was going down on a daily basis before
5:17 am
short covering, still very bearish the grain market." "i am not currently involved in the cattle market, but as a producer, you have to take this and do something with it. we have this tremendous rally of about 1600-1700 points. there was a lot of short covering if you look at open interest, open interest went down. i still think lower prices are ahead." "the hogs i have been wrong on, i was short the june hogs from around the 76 level we got around as high as 78.60 today. my stop is at 79, right now we're down back to 78 even. i'm not risking much more, i'm surprised by the rally and i've been wrong on this trade, but as a producer, again, i'd be selling hogs like crazy and hedging at these levels." ---- thanks for joining us on the agribusiness report.. i'll see you again tomorrow. ---- we'll post a video every day in the agribusiness section of kcrg.com. you'll find it under the news tab. i'm david geiger with the agribusiness

"at that time, my blood sugar, since he had sent them, was 167 and i was like whoa, you know, what's this?!" people are diagnosed with diabetes if their fasting blood sugar levels are above 126, or if a test of red blood cells known as an a-1-c reads higher than six-point-five. pre-diabetes is blood sugar between 100 and 125, or an a-1-c between five-point-five and six-point-four. "often if the blood sugars are borderline, people don't know." despite an active lifestyle, blood tests

symptoms. alison massey is a diabetes educator who says pre- diabetes is a red flag that it's time to make a change. "we have research that supports that lifestyle change is so powerful at reducing your chance of developing type-two diabetes by about 50 percent." here are five changes you should make if you are pre- diabetic: first, if you're overweight, reduce your body weight by 10 percent. exercise at least 30 minutes, five times a week. limit or even eliminate sugary drinks. try to make vegetables 50 percent of each meal. and finally, increase your fiber intake. atlas's weight swings between 185 and 216, and he knows at the lower end his diabetes risk goes down. i'm martie salt reporting. trt 1.34 oc std. since many patients don't know their blood sugar levels may be in the pre- diabetic range, doctor champion says people should be screened every three years for type-two diabetes starting at age 45. those with a family history of

overweight are at higher risk and may benefit from earlier screening. a wisconsin student with an incurable form of brain cancer now has his high school diploma. family and friends gathered at kirk robb's hospice room for a special ceremony. the 17 year old has brain cancer and has had 12 brain surgeries. robb and his parents say they're grateful for the honor. " "it's important because i want to know that i did something in high school." "i think it's great that they came out and supported kirk and us like that. i didn't expect this many people, but it was kind of nice that they came out to see kirk, and it was just great that they came."

the chief justice of the iowa supreme court wants to end racial disparities among iowans who are incarcerated. last year, chief justice cady said iowa incarcerated nine-point- four percent of the state's african american men. he said that was the third highest percentage in the u-s. linn, johnson and scott counties are working with georgetown university on juvenile court pilot programs to eliminate racial disparity. kcrg-tv9's jill kasparie reports on the johnson county program called ladders. nats of dancing it's not hard to find happy kids at the dream center. "here at the dream center we have homework support, we have mentoring, we have a performing arts academy. " frederick newell, who started the non-profit, says it's all about education and giving youth
5:30 am
"we are creating programs here that kind of help with making sure people don't get involved in the system." his organization isn't the only one striving to help kids. the ladders program is a team effort in johnson county that includes law enforcement, the school district, the juvenile court system and the county. it focuses on the offense of disorderly conduct, which often comes with fighting. instead of getting charged - kids go through the program, which includes a mental health evaluation, community service and a writing assignment to think about their actions. "so hopefully the goal is to modify that behavior so we don't see those juveniles again and at the end to keep them from committing offenses that would get them incarcerated as an adult. " just this week the iowa city police department expanded the program to include another charge - fifth degree theft - in hopes of keeping even more youth out of the system. "7:59:16 i don't know if we'll ever solve the disparity, but i definitely think we can make it better." newell says ladders is a good step, but says more
5:31 am
"8:20:30- i just felt like if somebody would hold onto them and tell them what their potential is then maybe that in themselves, a change in mindset would help our youth not to get into things that would lead them into a system like the criminal justice system." tv-9's jill kasparie with that story. iowa city police say if students already have a record or if they've been through ladders, they will get charged with those two crimes. the chief justice says the johnson county pilot project has reduced the number of school referrals to juvenile court by 61-percent. as we mentioned, one of those programs trying to eliminate racial disparity is in linn county. the cedar rapids school district, police, juvenile courts, and big brothers big sisters rolled it out this school year. they're focusing on finding 25 mentors for african american children who could face a troubled future. "right now we have five active matches meeting out in the community doing things together. the majority of them got matched in november or december
5:32 am
enough time to see what difference that has made, but we are hearing positive things." school leaders refer students to big brothers, big sisters based on their absences, grades and other patterns of concern. o'brien-may says the idea is for the students to work with mentors to interrupt that pattern and turn things around. also, during his state of the judiciary, chief justice cady pointed out another key problem to work on in iowa. he says human trafficking is a serious problem in iowa and we need to address it. he says we need a coordinated effort to identify the victims to provide them with the protection they need. the judicial branch is also seeking more than 190 million dollars in funding for this fiscal year. family and friends in eastern iowa are mourning the loss of man who was killed during an attempted robbery in memphis, tennessee. police say 48-year-old lonnie ludvigson died from a gunshot wound saturday afternoon. they
