amounts of snow here, interstate 80 at lincoln nebraska is closed this morning. and other parts of the state did see more snow than we did. mason city is reporting 10 inches of snow as of this morning. that left people to shovel the heavy snow just to get around. road conditions were so bad in western iowa that many city and county services had trouble doing their jobs. sioux city got up to 10 inches of snow. the snow and strong winds shut down interstate 29 for a while yesterday. a national cattlemen's beef association meeting sparked a change in the cattle futures markets. in today's agribusiness report, robot trading benefits from a year ago are still causing concern. but right now, here's a look at today's opening farm markets. good morning! it's ---.
5:14 am
agribusiness report, i'm david geiger. ---- cattle futures were added to a system that caps how many orders traders can send.. in relation to the number of trades executed. the c-m-e groups made these changes in time for futures trading yesterday to curb volatility.. the move was a response to a national cattlemen's beef association meeting last week.. where chairman terry duffy heard complaints. i talked to market analyst jamey kohake with paragon investments.. he says it started a little over a year ago where limit moves started up a volatile cattle market.. wrecking balance sheets because of robot trading.. "and that's what everyone's so disgusted over. was people losing the generation of wealth over robots in new york and/or chicago. push these markets over based on no fundamentals at all. so they're talking about putting circuit breakers in to limit that. so we don't have these big extreme moves. there was also talk to over how do we link these
5:15 am
fundamentals." ---- i'll have kohake's analysis on today's market in a bit.. but before that.. china might open their ports to u-s beef again.. in 2003 the country closed down imports because of the mad cow disease.. but the u-s meat export federation predicts china will open the market fully by the middle of the year. in 2006 china lifted the ban on some boneless products.. and from 2010 to 2015.. imports increased ten times what it was.. china is already the biggest u-s ag export customer.. rabobank says its beef consumption will keep expanding in the next ten years to about two point two million tons.. domestic production is only forecast to meet 80 percent of that.. ---- but the u-s may also lose a little bit of the beef market in that time.. a trade deal between japan and australia could come at the expense of u-s beef exports. the u-s-d-a's economic research service released a report on the trade agreement's impact.. saying the japan- australia economic partnership
5:16 am
may reduce u-s imports to japan by 100 million dollars.. while increasing australian imports by the same amount. on the flip side.. if the japan had a similar agreement with the u-s.. the u-s-d-a says it would gain a hundred 30 million dollars in demand.. japan's domestic production only supplies 40 percent of its beef demand. ---- the grains are getting a little bit of a rally.. jamey kohake explains.. "i'm very surprised, you look at the stock markets we are down hard. all of that negativity, though, not spilling over into the ag sector." "corn a penny higher right nearby the resistance. beans as well. pushed through it too this morning. what we're getting is large funds, large speculators are rolling out of their short futures positions and buying puts and selling puts instead. and right now it's just funds want to limit risk, specs want to limit risk and getting on the futures and rolling onto option strategies." "we opened up higher in the cattle, didn't look too bad early on. we're kind of fizzling out right now. it's
5:17 am
light volume, getting some weakness from the outside markets with the equities i don't think we're going to see any cash being reported again until late friday afternoon." "april contracts, playing around with the 200 day moving average which is very pivotal for a lot of fund traders. see if we'll close before that and see more long liquidation the market is trending toward an overbought scenario. we've been really on this rip-roaring rally roughly 10 dollars. so a minor, little setback that would not mean a whole lot." ---- and that's all we have time for today.. 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 report. trt 3.49 oc webtease football fans have unique ways to show support for their teams. in honor of football's biggest weekend, a colorado goat farm is showing off bronco pride. the

costs of hard water are the focus of today's angie's list report. "most houses across the country do have hard water, and over the long term it can be damaging to your pipes as well as your water-using appliances. therefore, a water softener can be a good investment to save you money in the long run." "it affects everything in the way you feel when you get out of the shower - your hair, your skin, the laundry, how you take care of your house. there's many, many different aspects of living every day that it touches." water softeners take the hard water and removes minerals like calcium and magnesium and replaces them with a softer mineral like sodium or potassium. some of the benefits of soft water include a reduction in energy bills. it keeps your water heater free of deposits that can take longer to heat your water. also, soft water can make your hair and skin look and feel healthier. hard water can dry them out. finally soft water can get rid of soap scum left behind when you clean with hard water. you can find more helpful tips

"the next step is you really get
5:27 am
you start planning and phasing out the construction project, so the fun part has begun." last year, voters narrowly rejected a similar bond issue. the district says it needs this extra space as enrollment continues to grow. this vote means property taxes will increase $17.50 per year for a home assessed at $100,000. in waterloo, the school board says it still wants to meet the needs of their students after a failed bond issue. voters rejected the $47 million bond plan with about 56% saying no. again, it needed a 60% super majority to pass. the district would have used that money for career and technical education programs in a new $35 million dollar career center near waterloo's central middle school. waterloo east and west high schools would each have also undergone $6 million dollars worth of renovations. waterloo schools released a statement. it said, in part, "we are surprised and disappointed with the results ... we absolutely want to meet the needs of our students and remain determined to do so." denver high school will get

5:30 am
related arrests has significantly increased in the past year, and this drug could help fight that. "i think we need at least a two prong approach. we need the law enforcement portion but if they can some kind of help to get them off the drug, by all means we encourage it." the u-s department of health and human services has granted a three year, three million dollar grant to iowa department of public health. mercy is using that money for the medical drug treatment. more than 600 thousand people die of heart disease every year in the united states. that's according to the centers for disease control and prevention. february is national heart month, which was created to bring awareness to the disease's symptoms and signs. kcrg-tv9's brea love talked with medical officials who are urging everyone to pay attention to the signs. she joins us now. brea, what are doctors saying about this issue? chris and nicole, they say heart disease is the leading cause of death in both men and women. they're asking everyone to take a second and pay attention to the signs. typical symptoms range from chest pains,
5:31 am
discomfort in the arms. but, there are some atypical symptoms also. with most of those unusual symptoms occuring in women. some women may not have chest pain at all. they could experience sweating, nausea, and other pains. one doctor says anyone experiencing these symptoms should stop what they are doing, rest, and see if the symptoms subside. 1:56:50 "if this is done early enough, the symptoms will resolve and then they need to call their doctor. if they do not resolve and they continue to be present despite resting and stoping exercise, if someone who doesn't have previous heart disease and doesn't have medication at home than they need to call 911." hajj says if someone knows they have heart disease, they should take their medication when experiencing symptoms, but still call their doctor immediately. he also says this month is extremely important for people to remember to be aware, prevent, get diagnosed, and treated. chris and nicole, it's an important issue to bring to light. that's right. thanks a lot brea. an effort failed to override president obama's veto of a bill to repeal
