5:15 am
spring.. which wiped out 31 million birds in iowa.. aphis is working with the indiana state board of animal health on a joint incident response.. and the site has been quarantined with bird depopulation already started. birds from this flock will not enter the food system. the outbreak location is just under 400 miles from an iowa border. there are no known cases of h-7-n-8 infections in humans.. but as a precaution.. the u-s-d-a recommends cooking poultry and eggs to an internal temperature of a hundred 65 degrees fahrenheit.. that kills viruses and bacteria.. ---- the u-s-d-a was out brokering talks on g-m-o labeling last week.. secretary tom vilsack says they planned a meeting with both sides of the g-m-o debate to try and find common ground.. they will look for find consensus to recommend action to congress.. but bringing two sides of the debate together is only the first step in a national labeling law.. and while working toward that goal vilsack points out genetic modification has been proven safe. and he cautions the harmrm patchwork of state

"every company, theoretically, every state and jurisdiction theoretically, has the capacity, the ability and the right to decide for themselveses what they're going to do. that's fine if you're dealing with one company in one community. but the reality is these are major companies doing business in every community." ---- cattle had a big setback on friday with near limit losses.. and hogs are following suit. over in the grains.. the markets have just drifted sideways moving more with the global stock numbers. i talked to analyst jamey kohake just before the market close.. "the post-report day on tuesday was really the only big volatility day that we've had in the grains post-report. since then we've been pretty choppy. cn looks liket's trying to form a bottom."

"the hogs are spilling over with the cattle. i think they're trying to form a bottom a little bit better, a little bit faster right now. cash is still going to be the key in here right now. see what this cold weather does here this next week. see if the weights drop off again or not. i actually like buying breaks in the hogs right now. and if we can separate from the beef sector, i think the hogs are okay." ---- and that's all the time i have for the show this morning.. thanks for jojoing.. i'll see you next time.. ---- we'll

pointers, seven of them came in the 2nd half alone ... jarrod uthoff wasn't done scoring... he puts on a couple of nice moves two more of his 23 points... iowa goes on to win 82-71 scott saville and jess settles have more from carver iowa raises their big 10 record to 5-0 and jess they got off to a tremendous start. this is the best i have seen mike gesell play he only took four shots but in the first few minutes instead of driving he slowed it up and found the opener shooter and got the lead and the crowd into the game. it was a game of run michigan actually took the lead but iowa responded and show a lot of toughness. we kind of soften up on defense after the run so we just regrouped and focused on defense. i think what is really seperating them right now w the bench play. how bout dom uhl coming off the bench and hitting the big shots
