RealAg Radio, Dec. 20: Rum and eggnog, lowered beef duties in Japan, and American politics


It’s serious business at the RealAgriculture as RealAg Radio host, Shaun Haney has a daunting question for news lead, Jessika Guse. Eggnog, yay or nay?

You’ll have to listen to her answer as it might shock some of you and don’t worry the pair cover all your top ag news stories of the day which include China buying more soybeans from the U.S., the Federal Reserve hike, Safe Food for Canadians licences now available, Japan set to lower its duties on beef, Manitoba Beef Producers lifetime achievement awards, and a Manitoba family donates 40 acres of soybeans to Stars air ambulance.

Also on the show, Steve Denys of Maizex explains hybrid selection and how you can make sure you have the right hybrid going on the correct piece of land. Then, Peter ‘Wheat Pete’ Johnson joins Haney to tackle all your agronomic questions. To wrap up RealAg Radio, Jim Wiesemeyer of Pro Farmer at Farm Journal dives into the latest in American politics and how tariffs continue to hurt both Canada and the U.S.
