While out feeding cows with the bale bed pickup, I like to listen to AgriTalk on the radio at 9:06 a.m. (10:06 CT). AgriTalk is a live radio show that discusses current events and hot topics in the news regarding agriculture andÂ hosted by Mike Adams.Â I find it enjoyable to listen to, andÂ it’s notÂ even a comedy show.
We liveÂ close enough to Nebraska that weâ€™re able to pick up the radio station that AgriTalk comes on, which happens to be the farthest radio station from usÂ and is ironic sinceÂ we canâ€™t pick up cell service within a 10 mile radius or local TV stations 60 miles away.
I get a lot out of listening to AgriTalk. Adams usually has guests on the show that contribute information and discuss the issue at hand. Sometimes I donâ€™t want to miss whatâ€™s being said and will sit in the pickup listening while the pickup becomes surrounded by cows trying to get a bite of the hay bale Iâ€™ve set on the ground but havenâ€™t cut the twine off of.
I like to be informed as a cattle producer, land steward and land owner and try to read a lot in the agriculture papers we subscribe to, but feelÂ more empowered by the information I hear on the show at times. I think Adams asks good questions, bringing up pertinent concerns, and views all aspects of his chosen topic for the day.
AgriTalk can be found online, and the site provides podcasts, noteworthy agricultural news and issues, photos, links, a map of AgriTalk radio stations, and commentary from Adams. Â
