RealAg Radio, March 30: Gene editing, labour vs automation, and Canadian acre intentions

Starting off the show, Shaun Haney reflects on yesterday’s show, and specifically his conversation with Tyne Morgan. Considering struggles like those faced in the U.S., are arguments against supply managed dairy realistic? Are Canadian producers really held back in terms of innovation and growth compared to their counterparts without the system?

Then:

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