Content loading… DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Farmer Jeff Jorgenson looks out over 750 acres of cropland submerged beneath the swollen Missouri River, and he knows he probably won’t plant this year. But that’s not his biggest worry. He and other farmers have worked until midnight for days to move grain, equipment and fuel barrels away from the floodwaters fed by heavy rain and snowmelt. The rising water that has damaged hundreds of homes and been blamed for three deaths has also taken a heavy toll on agriculture, inundating thousands of acres, threatening stockpiled grain and killing livestock.

Farmers in the Midwest are feeling the impact of devastating flooding. Officials say the cost could be in the billions of dollars. Roger Johnson from the National Farmers Union joins CBSN with more.

Many folks are hesitant to try Holistic Planned Grazing because of what they think it entails. Greg Judy’s book responds to such hesitancy with enthusiasm and positive attitude and by articulating the basics in a very simple way, demonstrating to readers that it is possible to make these changes without a lot of infrastructure investment.Judy shows how to add sheep, goats and pigs to existing cattle operations. He explains fencing and water systems that build on existing infrastructure set up for Management-intensive Grazing. Sharing his first-hand experience (mistakes as well as successes), Judy takes graziers to the next level. He shows how High Density Grazing (HDG) on his own farm and those he leases can revitalize hayed out, scruffy, weedy pastures, and turn them into highly productive grazing landscapes that grow both green grass and greenbacks.If you have six cows or 6000, you can utilize High Density Grazing to create fertile soils, lush pastures and healthy livestock. Greg Judy, the master of custom grazing, shows how to earn profits with little risk while using other people’s livestock on leased land. Judy details how to work with Nature without costly inputs, and how to let the animals be your labor force.Comeback Farms covers multi-species grazing; developing parasite-resistant hair sheep flocks and grass-genetic cattle; and how to select, train and care for livestock guardian dogs. It includes High Density Grazing fencing techniques, diagrams for HDG fencing and paddock moves; and how to calve with HDG.By following Judy’s examples, you’ll keep your neighbors talking and wondering how you keep your fields green and your livestock grazing year-around. In the process you’ll be pocketing your profits.

Heavy rain coupled with melting snow has caused record level flooding in the midwest. A significant amount of impacted areas include farmland, which has lead to destroyed crops and livestock deaths. Blake Hurst, the president of the Missouri Farm Bureau, joined CBSN to discuss how the floods are impacting farmers.

South Korea has banned people from bringing livestock products into the country… as part of its ongoing efforts to prevent African swine fever breaking out here.
Lee Seung-jae has more.
African swine fever was first discovered in China last August.
Since then,… Mongolia, Vietnam and Cambodia have reported cases of the disease.
And with South Korean authorities finding traces of African swine fever on a sausage product brought in by a Chinese traveler last month,… Seoul has sharply ramped up quarantine measures.
What makes this disease so concerning is that so far… it has shown a 100-percent fatality rate.
“African swine fever is a viral disease that occurs only in pigs. It could cause national harm, since the fatality rate is very high, and unlike foot-and-mouth disease, there’s no vaccine.”
China has reported more than 100 cases of African swine fever so far.
The rising number of cases is stoking fear in South Korea as China produces almost 700 million pigs a year, or about half of the world’s total.
Given the rapid spread of African swine fever in China,… the South Korean government will amend its control and containment guidelines.
It’s also advised that South Koreans who visit affected regions take extra care.
“When you return from a trip to China, Vietnam or Cambodia, you should wash and disinfect all the clothes and shoes you wore during the trip.”
With the UN Food and Agriculture Organization warning the disease may spread to other parts of Asia,… South Korea will begin research this year to try and develop a vaccine.
