"i cried a lot. one always thinks the worst is going to happen because you don't know what part of the brain was damaged. doctors wouldn't say a lot because they were doing a bunch of tests...it was terrible. it still is. the fear is still there.

but how does the agriculture sector remove the seeds and dirt from their grains before wheaties? we look at the process at iowa state university, up next in our agribusiness report. stay with t-v nine. welcome to the agribusiness

harvest.. grain and seed products will add in rocks or dirt.. or low quality seed.. it's all mixed together.. and farmers need a way to separate it out. at an
11:18 am
gravity separator.. which is used along with cleaning.. for dry granular separation.. on food grade grain and cereal. "a gravity separator is basically a more precise mean of density separation. my name is alan gaul and i'm the seed conditioning specialist here at iowa state university seed science center. basically we have a layer of seed that's at least three to five seeds deep. air is introduced, it starts to lift the seed. and at that basically floating. the heavy seed sinks to the bottom and the light seed floats on the top of the layer. the heavy materials make contact with the deck, and the deck is shaking in such a way that anything touching the deck actually works its way up the hill. since we're at least three seeds deep. the product in the top layer is now more or less isolated from the effect of the shape. and since the deck is sloped it tends to run down the hill pulled down by gravity. heavy product is working uphill, and the light product is going down. and the entire mass working down the length of the machine. at this point we wind up with a range from the lightest product to the heaviest product. typically the light is
11:19 am
it's thought to be the better seed. and then the difficult part is deciding what we're going to keep and what we're throwing away. nats" gaul says a gravity separator can make three to six fractions of weight measurement depending on the application. he adds technology like this improves the quality of what farmers and consumers use.. ---- the pro farmer tour starts up this week.. n on the board.. "got a little bit of green, kind of a mixed bag starting off the week. corn lower, real choppy though, mostly sideways, kind of getting spillover weakness from the wheat." "trade with wheat being lower. not any fresh news over the weekend, lack of farmer selling still supporting the market here today despite the choppy, penny, penny and a half lower trade. over to the beans, got a little more excitement here we do have a bit of a fresh sale to an unknown
11:20 am
that is supporting the market. it's all based off demand and that will be the key to keep the market supported." "little surprising trade here today, we started off lower based off the cattle on feed report just being a tad bit bearish friday afternoon. key will be cash trade this week. i think the bulls will still want 120-120+ to hold the market together. and we also got to see too how the labor day demand bookings ended up too." "choppy lackluster, still not very impressive. i just don't see much going on in the hogs at all with the big, big supplies overhanging the market. i think you still want to be a seller." the colfax sheep and goat auction on saturday saw a run of 367 head of sheep. feeder lambs fetched the days high average price of $2.06 per pound, while fed lambs averag auction.. they saw a high average price ranging from $150 to $180 per head. ---- 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 when you crack open a fizzy,

"it's definitely a hot dish." "casserole." "casserole kind of sounds like from the olden-days," whoever you ask, their answer is always right. "many people feel the way we speak is the right way to speak because it's what we grew up hearing,"our language is a part of our identity--- and we don't like to be wrong.

children are often known as picky eaters for their refusal to eat certain, or at times all, vegetables. while some vegetables may take multiple exposures before a child will try the vegetable, there are some great strategies parents can use to help encourage their picky eaters to try something new. at school, there are always a few rules children are required to follow. bringing that structure home with great rule to create in the kitchen is "don't yuck someone else's yum." words like "ew" and "gross" can be excluded from the kitchen environment whenever trying new foods or recipes, to help prevent negative feelings toward trying new foods. while children will dislike some foods, encouraging them to use the words "i don't like that vegetable/dish yet" provides a more positive environment surrounding new foods. in addition, another great rule is the "rule
