RealAg Radio, Sept 29: Keeping crop yields a secret

Well, Shaun Haney is down in Washington to take in some college football, and Kelvin Hepper is back at home after a busy week in Ottawa, but they both made the time, as usual, to co-host today’s Friday edition of RealAg Radio. In it:

  • Top ag stories – comments on Kelvin’s interview with Minister MacAulay, the potential crack in Bill Morneau’s armour, the Saskatchewan crop report, Chicken Farmers of Canada announce new executive director, and the Manitoba Pulse and Soybean Growers clear the air.

  • Market panel with analysts Brian Voth, Matthew Pot and Dwight Nichol, which includes thoughts on Friday’s USDA report, the Canadian dollar and, the big question: does keeping your crop yield a secret give you an advantage?

Join us for RealAg Radio every weekday at 4pm eastern on Rural Radio 147 on SiriusXM!
