RealAg Radio, May 3: Hog markets, dairy access, and Wheat Pete's Word


It’s another live broadcast from Picture Butte, AB today, and host Shaun Haney starts the show off talking about the power of a single word — ‘fair’. Then:

  • Top Ag News – An update on Bill C-49, Premier Wynne’s stance on Ontario’s Greenbelt, and more.
  • Hog markets – AgriTalk’s Chip Flory provides an update on the markets, and recent concerns around supply.
  • Wheat Pete’s Word – Resident agronomist Peter Johnson talks everything from re-thinking re-seeding alfalfa to making the decision on frost-heaved wheat.
  • Dairy access – Graham Lloyd, Dairy Farmers of Ontario, joins to talk about the potential for U.S. dairy access into Canada through NAFTA, and his thoughts around pulling back on dairy quota.

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