RealAg Radio, Oct 17: NAFTA demands, sideways markets and awkward federal communications

Host Shaun Haney starts off the show suggesting the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) — like Flames vs Oilers — is a marathon, not a sprint. Also in this Tuesday episode of RealAg Radio:

  • Kelvin’s Hot Picks (spoiler alert: not so hot).
  • Top Ag News – Tax change carrot offered by the Liberals, major dairy demands by the U.S. during NAFTA talks, Manitoba’s crop report, price comparison “whopping” between Whole Foods and Costco, 2017 Beef Industry Innovation and Sustainability Award.

Plus, the Liberal government’s changes to taxes (should farmers still be concerned?) and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s awkward interception of media questions addressed directly to Minister of Finance Bill Morneau.
