AgriTalk-February 11, 2020

Cattle, ASF, infrastructure, it's okay to drink milk...we cover it all in this morning's AgriTalk. Ethan Lane, v.p. of government affairs for the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, provides a recap of last week's NCBA Trade Show. U.S. Representative Cynthia Axne (Iowa) discusses the passage of a bill she co-sponsored to increase personnel to examine imported hogs and prevent ASF from reaching our shores. And Mike Steenhoek, executive director of the Soy Transportation Coalition, discusses the important news that the Army Corps of Engineers will deepen the lower Mississippi River which will benefit soybean transportation via water. The AgriTalk podcast is sponsored by Syngenta.
