We have struggled a little bit here and there on the corn side but we are getting closer. I farm with my son, Jeremy, and we both work full-time jobs and this no-till has taken a lot of labor away so we have time to do that.

Trade Talk virtual style | NAFB 2020🎙

By Dale Minyo and Kolt Buchenroth

Each year, our broadcast team travels to Kansas City, Missouri to the National Association of Farm Broadcasting annual convention. It’s here we get to connect with and interview representatives from ag companies and organizations from across the country. We also get to catch up with our farm broadcasting colleagues from across the country and eat far too much food. The signature day is the “Trade Talk” trade show where the nation’s farm broadcasters carry their microphones and recorders to interview the different exhibitors. This year, we traded in our airplane tickets, luggage and Kansas City BBQ for our laptops as we attended the first ever virtual convention. We spent Thursday bouncing between Zoom calls to conduct nearly 30 interviews with companies across the country. While portions of these interviews will air on Ohio Ag Net radio programming in the coming days, the full interviews are posted here.… Continue reading
