What a week! Reaction continues to pour in over the new USMCA trade agreement, and RealAg Radio host Shaun Haney discusses the week that was with Ontario field editor Lyndsey Smith and Jeff English, public relations manager with ThinkShift.  They also get into which holiday is better, Thanksgiving or Christmas. Hear how that conversation started in yesterday’s show by clicking here.

To begin with though, all your top ag news stories of the day are covered in ‘News with Guse’. Topics include ASF in China, U.S. Ag Secretary Purdue saying the U.S. should not be so dependant on one export market like China, and a rise in the number of CEW cases in Ontario.

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