RealAg Radio, April 30: Scheer calls out the PM, frost damage in the west, and YouTube famous sheep

Canola five days after frost.

On today’s episode of RealAg Radio, host Lyndsey Smith laments the bad day that was yesterday, the flooding in some areas, the frost, and freezing in others, and the joy of having a safe place to land in among it all. You’ll hear from:

  • Jessika Guse, with the News with Guse, including how the snow storm has impacted farmers and news hounds alike;
  • Andrew Scheer, leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, on what the prime minister should be doing on the canola file;
  • Sandi Brock, sheep farmer and YouTube hit, on Internet fame and silencing the haters; and,
  • Peter Johnson, resident agronomist, on why cereals are likely OK, but broadleaf crops likely aren’t in this very late blast of winter.
