PED UPDATE:

ANIMAL HEALTH NETWORK:

WHEN IT COMES TO ANIMAL DISEASE OUTBREAKS, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE. IT'S IMPORTANT TO GET INFORMATION OUT QUICKLY TO HELP CONTROL THE SPREAD OF A DISEASE. NOW IF YOU'RE A FULLTIME FARMER, CHANCES ARE YOU HAVE A NETWORK OF ASSOCIATES TO PASS ALONG IMPORTANT UPDATES. BUT WHAT IF YOU HAVE JUST A FEW CHICKENS, HORSES OR SHEEP? ARE YOU TIED IN? IN VIRGINA THERE ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PART-TIME OR HOBBY FARMERS. IN THIS REPORT FROM THE VIRGINIA FARM BUREAU, NORM HYDE TELLS US HOW THE STATE IS TRYING KEEP ALL FARMERS "IN THE LOOP".

IMMIGRATION VOTE:

IMMIGRATION REFORM SUPPORTERS MARKED UP A BIG WIN IN THE SENATE. THE SENATE VOTED 67-TO-27 TO STOP DEBATE ON THE BILL. THE SEVEN VOTE MARGIN SIGNALS ENOUGH VOTES TO PASS THE BILL IN THE SENATE, WHICH INCLUDES THE HOEVEN-CORKER AMENDMENT. THE AMENDMENTS AIMS TO BEEF UP BORDER SECURITY.

FARM BILL UPDATE:

IN ANOTHER WASHINGTON NEWS, TALKS OF ANOTHER FARM BILL EXTENSION ARE SURFACING. SENATE MAJORITY LEADER HARRY REID SAYS HE WON'T AGREE TO AN EXTENSION.

ANALYSIS:

IN AGRIBUSINESS TODAY, AL PELL TALKS ABOUT WHAT COULD BE THE BIG GAME CHANGERS IN CORN YIELDS THIS YEAR AND WHY 150 IS A KEY NUMBER TO REMEMBER.

VETS ON CALL:

SOME OF THE FINEST RACE HORSES IN THE COUNTRY COME FROM CENTRAL KENTUCKY. AFTERALL, LEXINGTON IS HOME TO THE KENTUCKY DERBY. THE EQUINE INDUSTRY IS ESSENTIAL TO THE STATE'S ECONOMY. THAT'S WHY IT'S IMPORTANT TO HAVE TOP-NOTCH VETERINARIANS TO CARE FOR THESE FINE THOROUGBREDS. IN OUR SPECIAL REPORT "VETS ON CALL", WE HEAR FROM DOCTOR DEBORAH SPIKE-PIERCE ABOUT THESE MAGNIFICENT ANIMALS.

EAT MORE CHICKEN:

MORE ATTRACTIVE PRICES AT THE STORE, AND THE MOMENTUM BEHIND THE MOVE TO MORE CHICKEN, IS GIVING THE U-S POULTRY INDUSTRY A BOOST.
