The Voice of Louisiana Agriculture Podcast #35 - July 25, 2019

Hurricane Barry made landfall in Louisiana, and we have full coverage of Barry’s effects on Louisiana agriculture on Episode #35 of The Voice of Louisiana Agriculture Podcast.  In news headlines, we’ll hear from Louisiana farmers who were affected by Barry’s wind and floodwaters.  Louisiana Commissioner of Agriculture and Forestry Dr. Mike Strain gives us his assessment of Barry’s damage on Grassroots Government.  We’ll go In the Field to Iberia Parish to check in with sugarcane farmer Ricky Gonsulin to hear about what Barry did to his cane fields. We’ll get a market update from Grayson Close of the Louisiana Farm Bureau Marketing Association and Dave Foster of Cattle Producers of Louisiana.  Then we’ll head to Northwest Louisiana to wrap up the podcast with Jack Dillard’s “Voice of the Ark-La-Tex.”
