RealAg Radio, May 20: The context of dry, a good price for pigs, and superstitions on the Farmer Rapid Fire


Welcome to this Thursday edition of RealAg Radio, which means a Farmer Rapid Fire! You’ll hear from:

  • Mark Torrey of Woodville, Ont., where the crops are coming along and the corn in sandy-loam is just about to come out;
  • Mark Huston of Thamesville, Ont., where even the normally wet fields are rapidly drying and he’s had good prices for his pigs lately;
  • Randy Court of Plumas, Man., who has never seen moisture levels this bad in 44 years;
  • Kristjan Hebert of Moosomin, Sask., where the top six to 12 inches needs a good moisture recharge, but he finished seeding, corner to corner;
  • Todd Hames of Marwayne, Alta., who also has had bouncy temps recently, but where seeding is mostly complete
