The Voice of Louisiana Agriculture Podcast #17 - September 7, 2018

On Episode #17 of The Voice of Louisiana Agriculture Podcast, we hear from Louisiana Commissioner of Agriculture and Forestry Dr. Mike Strain about hurricane preparedness, after dodging a bullet last week with Hurricane Gordon.  Congressman Ralph Abraham sits on the House/Senate Conference Committee for the 2018 Farm Bill. The committee met for the first time last week, so we’ll get an update on what’s happening from Dr. Abraham. Sugarcane planting is rolling full-speed ahead in Louisiana, so we will check in with St. Martin Parish sugarcane and soybean grower Mike Melancon to get his observations from the field. Greg Fox and Dave Foster stop by with market analysis on the grain and cattle markets.  Then we wrap it up with a look at the Louisiana Ag Calendar.
