RealAg Radio, Sept. 28: Carr talks trade, special farm panel, and higher interest rates?

As RealAg Radio host, Shaun Haney, puts it… “Today’s show is jam packed!”

Canada’s Trade Diversification Minister, the Honourable Jim Carr is on the show today. He talks about CETA’s one year anniversary, and if Canada will get the NAFTA deal done. Shaun also asks Carr what’s holding Canada back from signing a trilateral deal? Is it mainly the dairy sector that’s making it difficult to sign or something else?

Craig Klemmer also talks interest rates with Ontario field editor Lyndsey Smith. Can we expect higher interest rates soon? Klemmer answers that among many other economic questions.

Then, Ag Day host Clinton Griffiths and the host of the U.S. farm report Tyne Morgan, both from Farm Journal, join Shaun for a panel discussion about the trade situation with the U.S. and China. They also talk about U.S. farm profitability and the likelihood of a farm bill in the states.

RealAg Radio airs every weekday at 4:30 p.m. ET (2:30 p.m. MT) on Rural Radio 147 on SiriusXM!
