This is our final podcast of 2018, and it is Episode #23 of The Voice of Louisiana Agriculture Podcast. We cover a lot of news on this final podcast of the year. Don Molino attended the USA Rice Outlook Conference in San Diego and brings us several stories from that meeting. Avery Davidson attended the DTN/Progressive Farmer Ag Summit in Chicago and reports on a very special award given to a young Louisiana farm couple. In our “Grassroots Government” segment, we welcome back Congressman Ralph Abraham to give us a recap on all of the activity that went down on the 2018 Farm Bill over the past week. He will also give us his opinion of the new Clean Water Rule issued by the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers. Bobby and Melissa Morris of West Baton Rouge Parish are our guests on this week’s “In the Field.” Then we finish things off with a look at the grain markets, the cattle market and the Louisiana Ag Calendar. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
