    Episode #119 - Nowell Berreth & Joe Miller (Vaccine Mandates & Agriculture)

    Recently, I heard Joe Miller and Nowell Berreth speak about the recent OSHA vaccine mandate and agriculture.  I knew I had to have them on the podcast to have this same conversation.  Learn about the current status of the OSHA mandate, what the mandate contains, and the legal precedent is for challenges to these types of mandates.

    If you have read any agricultural news recently, you know that carbon has been an extremely hot topic.  Before entering into a carbon storage agreement, it is critical to carefully evaluation and understand the terms of the particular contract.  I'm joined by attorneys who have worked on these contracts, Anson Howard on the rangeland side and Todd Janzen for farmers.

    Episode #114 - Ted Matthews (Farm & Ranch Families + Mental Health)

    As you may know if you're a long-time listener, mental health is a topic that is near and dear to my heart.  With September being National Suicide Prevention Month, I wanted to do an episode focused on mental health in the agriculture context.
    So I reached out to Ted Matthews.  He has spend his career working with farm and ranch families and now works as a counselor and director of the Rural Minnesota Mental Health Specialists. This organization is state funded and offers counseling to farmers and rural residents in Minnesota free of charge.
    Ted joined me on this podcast to talk about the importance of prioritizing mental health, what unique stressors face farm and ranch families, and some tips for those involved in agriculture.
