Never let it be reported that the Around Farm Progress podcast isn’t diverse, even in a single episode. This week the show looks at the Conservation Reserve Program and the benefits it offers, then moves on for a discussion of the beef checkoff, beef exports and even a discussion about Yellowstone.
First up, Fran O’Leary, Wisconsin Agriculturist, shares insights about the Conservation Reserve Program she gathered in a recent feature. The program offers flexibility for farmers to take part, and can help with the building of areas for recreation, for pollinators and even build back soil health. And farmers will find plenty of help if they decide to put some land into the program. O’Leary also shares some surprises she discovered when doing her story.
We wrap up with an interview Betty Haynes, Prairie Farmer, did with Norman Voyles Jr., former Cattlemen’s Beef Board chair and Indiana native. He shares insights about the beef checkoff, how the sell-off on cattle during the drought could impact the program, and the continued growth of beef exports. It’s a fascinating conversation and worth a listen. Voyles comments were also included in a feature about beef exports that ran recently.
