IMMIGRATION PLAN:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. IMMIGRATION TAKES CENTER STAGE IN WASHINGTON, D.C. AND IT'S GOOD NEWS FOR THE FARMMING COMMUNITY.

OK EARTHQUAKES:

IT WAS A SHAKY START TO TUESDAY IN OKLAHOMA. AT LEAST FIVE SEPARATE EARTHQUAKES RUMBLED THROUGH THE SOONER STATE OVERNIGHT. THE OKLAHOMA GEOLOGICAL SURVEY SAYS THE STRONGEST QUAKE REGISTERED AT 4 POINT 3...CENTERED NEAR LUTHER--29 MILES EAST OF OKLAHOMA CITY.

I-80 PLANTING TOUR:

A LINGERSTORM SNOW STORM IN THE WEST DROPPED AS MUCH AS 15 INCHES IN COLORADO. TRACTORS ARE PUSHING SNOW RATHER THAN PULLING IMPLEMENTS THIS SPRING. THESE LATE SNOW STORMS CONTINUE TO PUSH BACK THE PLANTING DATES FOR WESTERN AND NORTHERN AREAS OF THE COUNTRY. NEBRASKA PARTS OF IOWA AND AND THE NORTHERN PLAINS ARE EXPECTED TO ALSO SEE ADDITIONAL RAIN AND SNOW THIS WEEK.

CROP WATCH:

AS YOU SAW THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY HAS BEEN LOCKED IN AN INTERESTING WEATHER PATTERN THIS SPRING. CINDI CLAWSON IS IN FOR MIKE HOFFMAN AGAIN TODAY. SHE HAS MORE IN TODAY'S CROP WATCH.

MARKET UPDATE:

THE DOW RALLIED TUESDAY UP MORE THAN 100 POINTS. THAT FOLLOWS MONDAY'S MICRO CRASH WHEN STOCKS FELL MORE THAN 260 POINTS LED DOWN BY CONCERNS OVER GOLD.
GOLD BOUNCED BACK TUESDAY ALONG WITH OTHER COMMODITIES INCLUDING GRAINS AND LIVESTOCK FUTURES.

ANALYSIS:

THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS ARE THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF VOLATILITY. WITH SO MUCH DAILY MOVEMENT IN THE MARKETING GAME, IT'S TOUGH FOR SOME TO COME OUT ON TOP. AL PELL TALKS TO BRYAN DOHERTY OF STEWART PETERSON WHO SAYS IT'S STILL POSISBLE.
IN THE COUNTRY:

THE PATH LEADING BACK TO THE FAMILY FARM OR RANCH ISN'T ALWAYS CLEAR CUT. FOR ONE WYOMING RANCH FAMILY, IT INCLUDED A PIT STOP FOR A MUSICAL CAREER. IN THE ON GOING "I AM ANGUS" SERIES PROVIDED BY THE AMERICAN ANGUS ASSOCIATION, WE MEET A FATHER, DAUGHTER DUO WHO'S WINDING ROADS ARE STRENGTHENING THEIR FAMILY TIES.

RAW MILK:

IN FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY, A FORM OF MILK MADE ILLEGAL IN MANY STATES IS GETTNG A CHANCE IN THE NATURAL STATE.

BEETS:

IF YOU HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, BEETS MAY BE THE ANSWER. A NEW REPORT SHOWS A CUP OF BEETROOT JUICE CAN LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE. IN A STUDY OF A HANDFULL OF PATIENTS, DRINKING 8 OZ OF THE JUICE LOWERED A PERSON'S BLOOD PRESSURE BY 10 MILLIMETERS OF MERCURY RESEARCHERS BELEIVE THE NTIRATE IN BEETROOTS HELP WIDEN BLOOD VESSELS ALLOWING FOR BETTER BLOOD FLOW.
