Marketing Minute: Sound Agriculture Advice

Sound Ag Advice logoWhen we think of providing education to North Dakotans, we often reach for typical resources such as an Extension publication, news release or research report.

Did you know that there is another way to receive weekly agriculture advice and education?

The NDSU Extension Service produces a weekly radio/podcast segment that features news and advice about agriculture topics that affect North Dakota producers. Sound Ag Advice is the name of the radio segment where we invite an Extension specialist or agriculture researcher to provide the latest industry news and education about his or her field.

The most recent radio segments include:

  • As North Dakota pig producers ride the highs and lows of the current pork market, NDSU Extension Service swine specialist David Newman offers his thoughts on the state of the pork industry and advises producers about risk management related to animal health.
  • How much snow has North Dakota received so far this year? How cold can it get in North Dakota? How does an El Nino weather pattern affect our weather? Adnan Akyuz, North Dakota’s state climatologist and professor of climatological practices at NDSU, answers these questions and more.
  • As the income tax filing deadline draws near for agriculture producers, NDSU Extension Service farm management specialist Ron Haugen discusses some important things to note when preparing your taxes.

Listening to the three- to five-minute segment is a great way to stay up to date on the most current information our NDSU Extension and research professionals are providing.
