This week’s Positively Farming Media Podcast Network feature episode is an interview that I did with my friend Erika Leniczek from The Rural Mindset Podcast. You may remember Erika from Episode 127 of The Rural Woman Podcast, where we chatted about how to handle burnout on the farm – which sounds like a really good episode to go back and listen to, especially this time of year.

In this fourth episode of Canada’s Trains & Moving Grains podcast, farmers have some timely questions for Wade Sobkowich. Wade is the Executive Director of the Western Grain Elevator Association, and answers questions from farmers about demurrage charges to producers, Bill C-49, and the possibility mandatory reporting of export sales. A can’t-miss episode for grain farmers!
In the last decide there’s been an explosion in number of Alberta small breweries. Many of these new breweries enthusiastically use Alberta grown barley and other local grains. However, the vast majority are small, independent operations and don’t have the infrastructure in place to deal with the spent grain by-product of the brewing process. Inspired by her farmer father, Victoria Ross founded aGRO Systems, which collects spent grains and other organic materials from small brewers to upcycle these waste products into cattle feed and compost for farms and ranches.
In this episode of The Growing Point podcast, we chat with Sherwin Santiano, a malting and brewing technician of the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre and Peter Watts, the managing director of the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre. We discuss what malt barley is, what the malting process looks like, as well as the impacts that malting quality and farm management can have on the process. This podcast is chalked full of information about the malting process so enjoy!

Since 1984, Jim Anderson has been involved in the R&D program in what is now Nutrien Ag Solutions. Since that time, the program Jim has been working in has had 34 barley varieties supported for registration. The most successful varieties include: B1602 (malt), Winchester and Stetson (6-row, semi-dwarf, feed), Westford and Dillon (hooded, forage), Xena, Champion and Brahma (2-row, feed). Current varieties include Oreana (semi-dwarf), Claymore and Altorado (all 2-row, feed types). Altorado will be launched in 2022. Another four new varieties are being tested in regional trials. In our conversation we talk about Jim’s experiences with Nutrien and its predecessor companies, growing and developing barley varieties for prairie farmers. We delve into historical varieties, variety development and Jim’s passion for generating good quality data for farmers.

I also dive into the announcements of new investments into the agriculture tech industry from corporations like Amazon and Microsoft. With the addition of how great the show Yellowstone is and the potential implications this show could bring to bridging the gap between consumers and producers.
