RealAg Radio, May 8: Grain prices, weather forecasts, and a critical point for NAFTA

Only host Shaun Haney would find a way to segue from weather to basketball…and of course that’s where he starts the show. Then:

  • Top Ag News – Playoffs, NAFTA, planting progress in Manitoba, and more.
  • Markets – IntelliFarm’s Brian Voth joins the show to talk about the StatsCan report and its impact on the markets; soybean prices; spring wheat; and more.
  • Trade – Strong opinions on where we’re headed with NAFTA talks, with Carlo Dade of Canada West Foundation has some strong opinions on NAFTA. He joins to provide an update, saying we’re at a “critical moment in negotiations.”
  • Weather – Is the dry bias going to continue? Michael Clark, BAMWX, gives us the spring forecast.

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