We cover a lot of ground on Episode #16 of The Voice of Louisiana Agriculture Podcast, starting with the latest Louisiana Ag News Headlines. Iraq purchased U.S. rice this week, which is great news for Louisiana rice farmers. We will hear about the new denim plant in Vidalia, and we hear from two Louisiana farmers about the current international trade situation. In Grassroots Government, the President of the Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation, Ronnie Anderson, joins us to discuss the WOTUS rule, the 2018 Farm Bill and more. We go “In the Field” to learn about Noble Guedan of Concordia Parish. We’ll hear from Greg Fox and Dave Foster on the grain and cattle markets, then wrap it up with a look at the Louisiana Ag Calendar.
