RealAg Radio, September 30: Wild pigs, wheat royalty shake-up, and mandating cash trade in the cattle market


Thanks for joining us for our last-day-of-September edition of RealAg Radio, live from the studio at Lethbridge, Alberta.

Today’s show includes:

  • Top ag news, including the removal of two wheat varieties from the new seed royalty pilot program announced earlier this year;
  • A product spotlight with Jenna Metzger of Climate FieldView, on collecting and analyzing harvest results;
  • Greg Henderson, editorial director of Drovers and, on lawmakers’ efforts in the U.S. to mandate a certain amount of cash trade in the cattle market in an attempt to boost market transparency, and the implications if this would move ahead;
  • Ryan Brook of the University of Saskatchewan, on the ecological trainwreck that’s unfolding with wild pigs in Western Canada, his research on the spread of the devastating pest, and what can be done to address it.
