RealAg Radio, Dec 6: Production estimates, dropping tariffs, cattle prices, and black swans


Today’s episode starts with a listener’s feedback on a story from the CBC on how dairy producers are saying new transport regulations will mean male calves need to be killed when they’re born. Was this the right message to send? This listener thinks not.

Then, on the show, hear:

  • The top ag news (including some Star Trek references?);
  • Cattle prices this week, what’s in store for the rest of the year, and a quick look into 2020, with Anne Wasko of the Gateway Livestock Exchange in this week’s Beef Market Update; and
  • Unexpected events that shake the ag industry — Bernard Tobin speaks to Don Buckingham, CEO of Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute
