FL AgNet Week in Review July 27, 2007

Randall Weiseman Cattle, Citrus, Citrus Expo News, Crop Forecasts, Florida, General, Podcast

In this weeks podcast, the Florida Ag Statistics Service reviews last seasons numbers and prepares for the October Crop Forecast, Florida Citrus Commission Chairman Ben Albritton, Jr. addresses the free rider issue, NCBA President John Queen encourages cattlemen to contact their congressmen, Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Charles Bronson looks at the states future in bio-fuels, and farm broadcasters mourn the loss of Russ Ragan.

PROGRAM NOTE: This weeks’ podcast will be the last for a while. We plan to temporarily put our attentions to the project of redesigning this website and adding some new features for the region’s agricultural interests in the not-too-distant future, including a new lineup of podcasts that will better serve farmers and ranchers in the ‘deep southeast’. Meanwhile, the daily news postings will continue uninterrupted, so stay tuned!
