The crew of host Joel Penhorwood, Ty Higgins, Dale Minyo, and Matt Reese bring this week’s podcast from the 2017 Farm Science Review (recorded on Monday before FSR got underway, September 19-21).
The Farm Science Review always one of Ohio agriculture’s biggest events from year to year. For visitors to the 2017 Review, Ty talked with Matt Sullivan, general manager of the Molly Caren Agricultural Center, about this year’s FSR and what to know.
The Review is known as a key time to check out the latest innovations in agriculture, especially from the equipment side. In that spirit, Joel visited with Scott Brown, territory manager with Geringhoff, about the Truflex Razor draper combine header — just one of the amazing pieces of equipment in action during the field demonstrations.
And while agriculturalists from all around are visiting the FSR outside of London, Ohio, the event also serves as a good time to show non-agricultural folks the modern world of farming. Matt’s talk with Lance Westcamp, mayor of Groverport and farmer himself, highlights that need to communicate agriculture to newer generations becoming further disengaged with how food and fiber are produced.
All that and more, including the crew celebrating Ty’s 40th birthday, on the 26th episode of the Ohio Ag Net Podcast, courtesy of AgriGold. More at agrigold.com.
