Marketing Works - 45% Bottled Water Sourced From Municipal Water Supply.

Article: http://agtoday.us/147GS9W

"Scares over possible water contamination have helped boost demand for bottled water over the last few decades, experts say. The American public thinks bottled water is going to be safer and cleaner than tap water, says Mae Wu, attorney in the health program at National Resources Defense Council, a nonprofit environmental advocacy group based in Washington, D.C., but “for the most part, that’s not true.”"

Take away: Check out your water supply water quality reports and if you feel a need, buy filters and use durable water bottles.

Apps for Ag - Presentation to +Indiana Farm Bureau Young Farmer Leadership Conference.

YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7K_o8q49lGs
Short URL: http://agtoday.us/1C3mAKD

This presentation aims to help people learn how to identify "best" and what resources are available to learn more about apps for ag.

Additional info at: http://agtoday.us/ag-apps

Key take away: One of the best approaches to discovering what apps in ag work is to ask people you already know and / or ask on social media channels for other farmers to share their experiences with specific apps.

The Best Apps For Agriculture - John Blue, presented at the 2015 Indiana Farm Bureau Young Farmer Leadership Conference, January 31, 2015, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.

Audio link: http://traffic.libsyn.com/animalcast/141212_inwater_attari.mp3

Dr. Shahzeen Attari, Indiana University School of Public & Environmental Affairs, shares consumer and market research on what people believe about water usage in everyday settings and the impacts those beliefs have on setting water policy and practice.

This presentation is from the 2014 conference on Defining Indiana's Water Needs: Research & Solutions, held December 12, 2014, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.

I posted this here because the context is different: The notion of water use normally is in the context of business and agriculture over use and regions not having enough to meet demand. However in this presentations, Dr. Attari shares a consumer point of view of water, something many more people can relate to because consumers are us.

Manage your website passwords - Be paranoid when it comes to passwords being stored in the browser.

Support page on managing passwords in Google Chrome: http://agtoday.us/1vXlz5g

Recommendations?

Use LastPass (https://lastpass.com/ ) to manage and secure passwords. For the important accounts, like your email account or financial accounts, use two factor authentication (if available, see http://agtoday.us/1vnG1Hn ). Also, make those important account passwords long (20 characters) and completely unique from other accounts.

Have a backup plan if your accounts are compromised. This means knowing how to change the passwords quickly plus having an alternative email account as a backup.

Peak Chicken? - More chicken in 2015
means more economic incentives to hedge.

"Per-capita chicken consumption [US] will rise to 85.3 pounds in 2015 from 83.4 pounds this year, the USDA estimates."

Take away: Stock up. And buy a freezer as your personal hedge against the protein business ups and downs.

Shorting Chickens - Hot Trading After Prices Surge

Article: http://agtoday.us/1y3OWUa

"With no futures market to speculate on chicken-price movements, they’re [traders] turning to the equity market, borrowing record amounts of shares of two U.S. poultry producers that they in turn sell in anticipation of declines."

Take away: Chicken is a cheaper source of protein compared to beef and pork prices and have more demand. This makes traders want a way to profit from the boom/bust cycles. Beware the bust.
