RealAg Radio, May 31: Tariff retaliation, non-refundable check-offs, & side-dressing season

Episodes:

There’s no shortage of news to discuss on Thursday’s show, hosted by Shaun Haney, including:

  • The U.S. government confirming it will apply steel and aluminum tariffs to imports from Canada, the EU and Mexico, with all three quickly responding with plans for retaliation — is this the start of a trade war?
  • Brian Innes, president of the Canadian Agri-Food Trade Alliance (CAFTA), discusses the tariff escalation, as well as the Canadian government’s timeline for ratifying the CPTPP trade deal
  • Ryan Kasko of the Alberta Cattle Feeders Association on the group’s plan to work with Alberta Beef Producers on returning to a non-refundable checkoff
  • And of course, since it’s Thursday, Peter Johnson answers questions about emergence, side-dressing and much more on this week’s edition of Wheat Pete’s Word.
