It’s a jam packed Tuesday on RealAg Radio. Host Shaun Haney opens the show with a listener comment about soybeans staying green. What’s going on?

Jessika Guse, news lead,  is back for News with Guse and breaks down the top ag news stories of the day. They include:

  • FCC’s latest analysis of farm assets and debt
  • Grocery store giant Empire (who owns Sobeys) acquiring Farm Boy, an Ontario based grocery chain
  • Musician Neil Young somewhat promoting a very specific type of agriculture
  • Brent crude hitting over $80 on Monday, and the impact on crude by rail
  • WTO panel today reviewing President Trump’s tariff aid plan
  • Russia’s ag industry booming as another country sees huge drops in farm closures
  • Rural vet training to help curb the number of soon-to-be retiring veterinarians
  • The agri-business division of La Coop fédérée changing its name
  • More than a century old grain elevator in Saskatchewan getting heritage property designation
  • Premier Scott Moe returning from his trip to China where he talked about trade

Haney is also joined by Lisa Bishop-Spencer, communications manager with the Chicken Farmers of Canada. The pair discuss the scope of the poultry industry in Canada, as well as the opportunities and challenges faced by poultry farmers.

Then, as weather has been a huge discussion over the past week or so, Drew Lerner, from World Weather speaks to Shaun about the weather forecast and the prospects for farmers getting back into the fields.
