RealAg Radio, Oct 10: Corn ears, winter wheat and supply management

Co-hosts Shaun Haney and Kelvin Heppner are back for a post-Canadian-Thanksgiving show. After the typical sports- and food-related contemplations, this Agronomy Tuesday episode covers:

  • Kelvin’s Hot Picks sitting at 4 for 5.
  • Top Ag News – an update of prairie crop quality and yields, Canadian hog prices, PEDv in Manitoba, a new multi-species slaughter facility proposed for Montana, Prime Minister Juston Trudeau heading to Washington, negative tones to NAFTA, U.S. dairy back in media calling for an end to Class 7 and maybe even supply management, and the “not-so-free vote” in federal politics.
  • Mike Opperman, editor of MILK, on what the U.S. is looking for on the NAFTA file, and why is access into Canada so critical to future of U.S. dairy industry.
  • Peter Johnson, resident agronomist for RealAgriculture, on planting winter wheat into dry soils.
  • Aaron Stevanus, Pride Seeds market agronomist, on fixed vs flex ears in corn, and management strategies for each.
