RealAg Radio, April 8: Rural broadband, risk management, and a look at the U.S. dairy industry


It’s time for our midweek edition of RealAg Radio! We’ve got some big discussions coming for you in today’s show. You’ll hear:

  • Cherilyn Nagel, farmer from Mossbank, Sask., on rural broadband, and how COVID-19 has made many realize just how bad our access is to high-speed internet;
  • Dr. Jim Mintert, of Purdue University, on risk management and how to prepare for something unexpected, such as a global pandemic, and what are some of the things he is seeing in terms of characteristics of the farms out there that look like they are really able to get to the other side of COVID-19; and
  • Michael Dykes, CEO of the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA), on dairy processors on both sides of the border, and the facts behind milk dumping.
