RealAg Radio, May 1: Stale talking points, loving on rhubarb, and the trouble with red tape


May Day, May Day, yes, it’s May! On this edition of RealAg Radio, host Shaun Haney covers the top ag news, then is joined by ThinkShift’s Jeff English, Strathroy dairy farmer Andrew Campbell, and RealAgriculture’s Lyndsey Smith.

For the issues panel, they discuss:

  • Why more small processors isn’t a slam-dunk fix to the livestock processing problem;
  • How the government needs to freshen up its talking points (but why it likely can’t); and,
  • That any self-respecting adult has pie — not cake — for their birthday.
