#89 The robots are coming for your grain.
Our podcast sometimes gets berated for lacking intelligence, so we thought we would bring some artificial intelligence onto the podcast.
AI is all around us at the moment, from netflix to amazon. It isn't getting all that much attention from the point of view of helping farmers price grain.
We have a chat with Marcelo Artal, CEO of Hedgit. We find out what AI is, the opportunities for AI to assist farmers price grain and a whole lot more.
#88 Wet effect on grain and livestock
A quick market update on the impacts of the wet weather on livestock and grains.
#87 As raindrops say, two’s company, three’s a cloud.
Rain is impacting the supply chain in Australia and now Canada.
You might have seen the images in the press this week of Vancouver and the deluge they have received. We bring back Corey Nesteroff to tell us what is happening and the supply chain impacts of the floods. These rains are impacting the main port for grain and fertilizer exports in Canada.
We also talk about the impact of the rains on our own crop.
#86 Live from Global Grain
In a first for our podcast, maybe the first for any ag market podcast we record to a live audience in Geneva at the Global Grain conference. We chat with Dave McKeon, CEO of GrainGrowers and Tim Worledge, editor of Fast Markets.
The chat was all about what is happening in the grain space. What is happening with the barley tariff, the impact of the wet weather and what is happening with government intervention in markets.
#85 Chinese military helping our market.
We have a quick chat with Michael De Kleuver about what is happing in the wool market. We talk about how Chinese energy woes have impacted wool processing, but also recent military uniforms purchases have assisted the market.
We talk about our reliance on China for wool (+90%), and how early-stage processing could feasibly move here.
As always a bunch of topics, including something for everyone.
#84 A COP out
We have a quick update on the markets. Topics covered include livestock, a moan about COP26, fertilizer woes and the harvest pressure on grain.
Love the content boys, always spot on with your predictions. Can you please sort out why Matt is so much louder than Andrew. Cheers
Really enjoying this podcast. Good info on agriculture and economics mixed in with a bit of banter. Keep up the good work lads.
