    Episode #97 - Jeff Peterson (Hot Topics in Ag Finance Law)

    There have been a number of issues related to agricultural finance in the news recently, so I am thrilled to have Jeff Peterson joining us from Minnesota to walk us through some of the hot topics related to ag finance law.  We discuss the Dean Foods preferential payment letters, which many dairy farmers received, dealing with operating debt that the lender may not be willing to roll over, and about non-payment for livestock.

    Episode #94 - Jill Mader (Farm Transition Conversations)

    Episode #94 - Jill Mader (Farm Transition Conversations)

    If there is one thing we know farmers and ranchers like to do, it's to have difficult conversations about their feelings and future plans, right?
    Although these conversations may not be enjoyable, they are extremely important in order to ensure the success of the transition of a farm from one generation to the next.
    Today, Jill Mader, a farm transition facilitator, joins me to talk about the importance of these conversations and offer some great tips for how to get started, what to discuss, and how to reach common ground.

    Episode #93 - Joel Cape (Seed Law)

    Episode #93 - Joel Cape (Seed Law)

    When can a farmer save seed to use again for the next season?  What protections are in place for seed companies to prevent the illegal use or sale of seed?  What protections are offered by patent law, the Plant Variety Protection Act, and license agreements?
    These are the questions I sat down with Arkansas-based attorney, Joel Cape, to discuss.  Joel has represented seed companies, seed sellers, and growers in navigating these legal issues.

    Episode #92 - Andrew Decker (When Ag Law Meets Criminal Law)

    Episode #92 - Andrew Decker (When Ag Law Meets Criminal Law)

    I am not even sure where to start with this one.  I suppose we start either with the chicken or the egg.  When criminal law attorney, Andrew Decker, had a case involving poultry that resulted in a criminal complaint, he found himself digging into the Texas Agriculture Code because his argument depended on open versus closed range law.  When I got a phone call where a domestic turkey owner was facing criminal charges--I knew just who to call.
    Listen in for a couple of wild stories where some birds roamed and we ended up with a couple of cases where ag law met criminal law.
