Episode 1 – AgMedia Roundtable – Lyndsey Smith and Claire Cowan

This is a new segment on RealAgriculture.com that we are hoping you like because it is going to be a lot of fun for us to make and you to view. ┬áBased on the way that agricultural media has been cut back on TV and radio, many farmers do not have a “real person” understanding of their favourite agriculture writers.

The Ag Media round table will discuss what is happening in Canadian agriculture from the perspective of the different ag media that we invite to join us.

In this first episode we are joined by Lyndsey Smith, Editor of Grainews and Claire Cowan, Editor of the Ontario Grain Farmer.

We discuss potential dates for the start of seeding and planting, how agriculture might impact the 2011 Canadian Federal Election and how farmers can tell the story of ag more clearly.
