RealAg Radio, March 17: Ontario expos, black swan events, and a new CEO


Farmers and ranchers are the original isolationists… so maybe this global pandemic isn’t affecting your daily life as much as it is for some. Unless, of course, you had St. Patrick’s Day plans, which should probably be kept to a minimum. But hey, who says you can’t wear green at home? On today’s show, you’ll hear:

  • Jordan Underhill, founder of the Canadian Dairy Xpo, on what the future holds for the show;
  • Don Buckingham of the Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute (CAPI), on black swan events, what they mean for agriculture, how agriculture can spark innovation out of all of this, and how to make sure farmers come out on the other side; and
  • Markus Haerle, chair of the Grain Farmers of Ontario (GFO) on their latest CEO hire.
