RealAg Radio, May 15: Precision agriculture, collaboration, attack ads, and government deficits


It’s a soggy Friday in Ontario, while the sun shines brightly on the Prairies. It’s been a busy week for many farmers in the field, and politically, as the Grain Farmers of Ontario made waves with its attack ad running on Facebook and radio.

On today’s show, hear a precision ag update with Vantage Canada, and then the Issues Panel. Guests Andrew Campbell, dairy farmer and Food Bubble podcast host, Jeff English of ThinkShift and former Parliament Hill staffer, and Lyndsey Smith, sheep farmer and writer for RealAgriculture, discuss the ballooning government debt, changing sentiment on COVID-19 spending, GFO’s attack ad, and more!

(Also: RealAg Radio host and founder of RealAgriculture Shaun Haney turns 41 tomorrow, FYI. Wish him a happy birthday, please.)
