RealAg Radio, April 13: Snow, trade, and high-speed rail

Excitement is bubbling in the U.S. agriculture industry with President Donald Trump toying with negotiating a place for the country in the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). And that’s where host Shaun Haney starts the show. Is it now essentially a bilateral trade deal?

  • Top Ag News with Kelvin Heppner.

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