because the price is so cheap for the powder. it's going to china, but we still have a lot of butter that's not being exported and cheddar, and that's what we have to start getting through. we have to get those markets out. >> okay, real quick, angie, talk about the end user and the pull through, some of these livestock folks, pulling some of this grain we've got a big crop. >> oh yeah, yeah. i mean the good part about having increased herds when it comes to livestock and then we're replenishing our poultry numbers of course, because we hopefully at this point in time seemed to have missed that bullet again of the bird flu epidemic this fall that the usda was anticipating. that's helpful from a feed standpoint. million dollar question of course though is we are making a lot of ethanol, which we're making ddgs as a result. china's come in and told us for the second time in four years they don't want our distillers, so we are getting a little backed up on that. soil bio diesel, things like that. in order to get soy oil you have to crush beans and get soybean meal. so the one thi

the world. but right now china is seeing impressive growth within their own hog industry, except producers there are seeing 70 to 80 dollar per marijuana marijuana you? well, it's a topic we haven't covered a lot on our show, but it's making headlines across the country. and it's thiss week's customer support. bob dillard noticed something important i think that also happened on november 8: "at what point do we begin recognizing the tremendous number of our fellow citizens who now can use a cash crop that is transforming the economies of colorado, oregon, washington and now over 12 percent of the population in ustry with a giant upside that will only continue to grow." bob, you make a great point. recreational and medical marijuana measures passed in numerous and varied states, but i do not think this is going to become a big money maker for farmers. i may be one of the few of my generation who did no experiment with marijuana in the 60's and 70's or since, believe it or not. so i'm relying on excellent information from michael pollan's book, the botany of desire. his explanation

bearish the market in jefnlt i know there are things going on in china right now that are pretty bullish that are going to put a buying power underneath this market and in the corn crop in particular with the big loss in their crop, it will make our market a little more friendly than people would think. >> ok. gavin, you heard his comentd imhents that. you thought about this. are they different? >> i think a lot of farmers are finding they have far more bushels still to sell than they had thought only a month or so ago. what they should consider that is gravy, extra ammunition perhaps to fire off during these rallies we get on frost scarce. a mart ma hjorth of producers -- a majority of producers should already be quite well protected by this time of the year. we always put in our lows in harvest. no surprise. if you wait till now to sell, you're playing the wrong game at the wrong time. >> when you get in the feelt field and you get 20 bushels more per acre and get a couple thousand acres, what do you do? >> it's a terrific problem to have. you should only be a seller in balance

exporter isn't in the market at all, argentina, and china is building reserves, you have the potential to still seek some better prices at this time. so, you know, china is not happy with us and neither is brazil with the dollar going down because we're so competitive against china and also for brazil for their pricing of their beans. but in the meantime i think that we're gonna see some chances for much better prices in corn, you're gonna have an acreage fight this year, this last year you didn't because the ethanol industry was suffering but that's back on track so as screws stands it holds its ground here and one way to kind of keep an eye on these commodities is the balance particular dry states. we have hit 6-month highs and we're not superfar from where we were in '08. >> i see you nodding. >> quite a bit i agree with but the u.s. is starting to come under a lot of pressure to do something about the value of the dollar. >> at the g20 where the dollar isn't the standard any longer. >> yeah. >> a lot of that pressure is coming out of europe and it's because of china's peg

poultryproduct exports. >>> while the usda is still awaiting details from china on the conditions for the resumption of imports of u.s. pork, ag secretary tom vilsack says he is hopeful u.s. pork exports to china could resume in the very near term. china announced this week it isofficially lifted restrictions on iment po -- imports of u.s., canadian and mexican pork. china instituted the ban as mart of the h1n1 outbreak. despite lifting the ban, details on how and when shipments could resume are not known. few market analysts expect volume of shipments will come anywhere near the hefty buys of pork that china made leading up to the olympic games. >>> because of the unprecedented harvest delays, the ag department says it will extend its weekly crop progress by at least one more week this year. the usda says that will help them get more complete results for their report. meanwhile, this week's report shows corn harvest at 79% complete. the five-year average is 97%. the soybean harvest is all but wrapped up sitting at 96%. that's it for the headlines. it's time now to join john for crop

china. it's going to be a political solution or a political surprise. i would say the market is as bullish as it was back in june. we had several ways to make it bullish. we're going to have to have things to make it bearish. we're going to see rationing of ethanol and exports. it's very difficult at there point. if someone gets in trouble, this market could be intense. >> we're talking about rationing exports, you're talking about governmental actions. is that what you're suggesting? >> might happen. >> if prices got too high. and i think the definition of that is probably $8 corn and 15 to $20 beans. >> is he talks right here that that kind of thing could have with the united states, with the way things are at this point. >> it's a quick answer. we need a lot more bean corn acres this year, we're behind the 8 ball. increasing 3 plus 4, something like that. man, we've got to -- it just doesn't add up. that's all i can tell you. but, i will say this, the market will ration to a point to where, one, how are they going to deal with this man date here that expires at the end of the ye
