What do beagles have to do with hog barns? Very little and yet everything (see tweet below). It would seem that not much is off limits when Lyndsey Smith hosts RealAg Radio, but at least she manages to connect to actual farming at some point.

On Thursday’s edition of RealAg Radio, you’ll hear:

  • Jessika Guse with the top ag news of the day (and finally enough time to actually discuss some things, such as Alberta ranchers’ plebiscite vote starting tomorrow);
  • Sheldon Hains, with Nutrien Ag Solutions, for this week’s product spotlight on forages and pollinator mixes;
  • Peter Johnson for this week’s Wheat Pete’s Word; and
  • Dale Leftwich and Corey Loessin to talk about grain dryers, permits, and a terrible #harvest18

RealAg Radio airs every weekday at 4:30 p.m. ET (2:30 p.m. MT) on Rural Radio 147 on SiriusXM! Get involved with the show by calling the RealAg Radio listener line (855-776-6147) and via Twitter at hashtag #RealAgRadio.
