RealAg Radio, Oct 15: So much vomitoxin, vet tech week, and farmer as identity

It’s Monday, which means RealAg Radio is all about agronomy — or at least mostly. It also marks day one of an entire week of Lyndsey Smith hosting the show. Beware: there may be a whole lot of livestock and sheep talk all week.

Today’s show features:

  • News with news lead Jessika Guse
  • Two segments with Peter ‘Wheat Pete’ Johnson, where he covers the mess that is this 2018 corn crop, plus talks clover stands, wheat seeding, and forage management headed into winter

Listen below to Monday’s show, and as always, you can listen to Sirius XM Rural Radio channel 147 at 4:30 eastern to catch RealAg Radio!
