Co-hosts Shaun Haney and Kelvin Heppner start off this episode with a quick refresher on Kelvin’s Hot Picks, then move swiftly to the top agriculture news. A summary of what they discuss in the news, and with guests, on RealAg Radio:

  • Ron Bonnett, Canadian Federation of Agriculture, joins Heppner from Washington to give an update on NAFTA, talks with the Liberal government regarding the proposed tax changes, and a study with MNP looking at specific numbers.
