The Voice of Louisiana Agriculture Podcast #27 - February 22, 2019

Another jam-packed podcast awaits on Episode #27 of The Voice of Louisiana Agriculture podcast. We cover a lot of ground in the news headlines, with stories on more flood relief money for Louisiana farmers, an increase in sugarcane acreage and a new insect control product available in our state for 2019. In “Grassroots Government” we check in with Louisiana Farm Bureau Lobbyist Joe Mapes to get his outlook on the upcoming legislative session and the election cycle we are now in. We’ll go “In the Field” to talk to DeSoto Parish cattleman Joey Register about how his cattle herd is handling this crazy winter. Our regular market analysts Greg Fox and Dave Foster will give us an update on the grain and cattle markets, then we’ll wrap it up with a look at the Louisiana Ag Calendar.
