RealAgRadio, Jan. 25: Saik on his new roll with DOT, plus a panel on border surprises, heated boots, and realistic outlooks


It’s Friday, or as RealAgriculture’s Ontario field editor, Lyndsey Smith puts it — FriYAY! For today’s RealAgRadio show, host Shaun Haney has Rob Saik, DOT’s new retail CEO on the program to discuss his new position with the company. The pair also talk about Saik’s recent trip to Toronto to talk with government officials about what the big issues farmers and ranches are facing in Canada.

Speaking of issues, for today’s episode, Haney invites Smith along with news lead Jessika Guse to discuss the latest issues in agriculture. These vary from how a producer can stay warm during the winter months, to cases of African Swine Fever being found in pork products coming into Australia not once, but five times by border security, and many other topics.
