RealAg Radio, May 2: Fuel prices, signing bonuses, and changing demographics


Why do we even have a regular season? Host Shaun Haney gives a shout-out to the playoffs to start the show. Then, finding and keeping skilled farm workers, and BNSF Railway’s strategy. And, of course:

  • Top Ag News – ICE wants to move canola futures to New York; an update on CP strike; Bill C-49; and more.
  • Rocky Talk – Rocky Mountain Equipment’s Jim Wood talks water management.
  • Fuel prices and pipelines – Dan McTeague, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy, talks about what’s causing the run-up in prices; what blocking pipelines does to fuel prices; the role of export capacity; the difference between diesel and gasoline markets; and where carbon pricing comes into the picture.
  • Politics and demographics – Darrell Bricker, CEO Ipsos Public Affairs, talks the Canadian identity, immigration, population trends, and agriculture.
