Episode #21 of The Voice of Louisiana Agriculture Podcast originates from Kansas City, Missouri, where we’re attending the National Association of Farm Broadcasting’s annual convention. There are a lot of newsmakers here, so we’ll bring you a lot of stories in our opening news segment from Kansas City, as well as several stories from back home in Louisiana. Avery Davidson, host of the weekly television show “This Week in Louisiana Agriculture” chips in to help us out while we’re on the road this week. Avery interviews Louisiana Farm Bureau’s Kyle McCann about the outcome of the midterm elections and the effect it will have on agriculture. Avery also hosts our “In the Field” segment this week where he talks to Jacob Rumbaugh of Caddo Parish. Grayson Close and Mark Tall of the Louisiana Farm Bureau Marketing Association check in with us to discuss the grain and rice markets, and Dave Foster give us an update on the cattle markets. Then we wrap it up with a look at the Louisiana Ag Calendar. One final note from our trip to Kansas City… Congratulations to our own Don Molino. Don was named the 2018 National Farm Broadcaster of the year. It’s the highest award given by the National Association of Farm Broadcasting, and Don is well deserving of the honor.
