The farm auction business has not been left untouched by the wave of mergers and acquisitions in agriculture, as Ritchie Bros. has announced the purchase of Saskatchewan-based Kramer Auctions.

That’s one of the top news stories covered on today’s edition of RealAg Radio, co-hosted by Shaun Haney and Kelvin Heppner.

We also discuss competitiveness concerns for Ontario farmers, as Glen Murray has announced the next steps in the province’s move to implement a cap and trade program.

And we round out today’s show with an in-depth agronomy discussion about 2016 with Orland Thompson, Terry Aberhart (@aberhartfarms) and Steve Larocque (@beyondagronomy) from the Bayer Agronomy Summit in Banff.
