Nearly the entire Real Agriculture team gathered in Saskatoon earlier this week to talk content, new features and conference coverage over the next few months.

Those who know any of the team personally can likely imagine the decibel level (Lyndsey, shush!), the creative ideas that swirled, and the laundry list of ag topics on the agenda.

Near the end of the meeting, the team sat down to record a few conversations. Below, you’ll hear from Shaun Haney, Kelvin Heppner, Debra Murphy, Rhett Soveran, Jason Stroeve and Lyndsey Smith on the latest development of the WTO trade ruling in Canada’s favour, the shape retaliation measures may take, where those tariffs may end up, and, oddly, why the U.S. may be looking to sell mattresses to the European Union.
