RealAg Radio, March 14: Strawberry honey, planter prep, and shoebox bookkeeping

Lyndsey Smith, Steve McCabe, and Maeghan MacKimmie at the Climate Fieldview booth at Ottawa Valley Farm Show 2018

When Shaun Haney and Kelvin Heppner are super busy with TechTourLive in Saskatoon, they turn the show over to Lyndsey Smith for a surprisingly light-on-sheep news RealAg Radio episode recorded at the Ottawa Valley Farm Show. On the show today:

  • Some Ag News — Lyndsey wouldn’t call it the “top” stories, but she did try to keep it regional.
  • Dan de Moissac from FieldView at the Climate FieldView Booth.
  • Joel Hoehn, service manager at Rocky Mountain Equipment, talking about preparing your seeder or planter for spring.
  • Ursina Studhalter tells us why shoe boxes still have a place in farm accounting, but cloud-based software is a far better option.
  • Leander Campbell, remote sensing specialist with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada talks about crop mapping, road tours, and his favourite finds in rural Manitoba.

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