RealAg Radio, Oct 25: Two years on the air, African Swine Fever concerns, and CPTPP ratification


To open the show it was a belated two year birthday for RealAg Radio on Rural Radio 147. Its been a great two years and we look forward to many more.

Jessika and Shaun discuss the breaking news in which Canada became the fifth country to ratify the CPTPP, making them part of what Shaun calls “the original six.” Also, Canada hosts WTO meetings, President Trump brags about making dairy great again and what it takes to be a great potato peeler. (yes, you read that right.)

CASE IH discusses its lineup of Farmall tractors and the benefits for farmers in a product spotlight.

Peter ‘Wheat Pete’ Johnson answers all of your agronomic questions in Wheat Pete’s Word.

To finish off the show, Shaun speaks to Dr. Egan Brockhoff about the dangerous spread of African Swine Fever in Asia and Western Europe and what Canadians need to do to prevent it from coming to our country.
