It’s trade show season, and we have spent a great deal of time talking about the shows we’re covering, but one we haven’t talked much about on the show is our very own TechTour Live, and Lethbridge is already sold out!

  • Do we really need to double food production by 2050? A challenge to production needs, and population projections with Penn State University’s Mitch Hunter.

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