Agriculture Today Radio Program Wednesday, February 20


K-State agricultural economist Troy Dumler looks at what agricultural
leaders in Congress are proposing in an effort to stave off federal
budget sequestration...and the likely implications for federal
agricultural programs, if sequestration does go into effect on March
1st

Agricultural law specialist Roger McEowen reports on a new ruling out
of the Iowa Supreme Court on the liability protections for farmers
and ranchers who host people on their property for recreational
purposes...the ruling sets a new legal precedent that he thinks will
discourage agricultural producers from opening up their premises to
the public

And K-State's Gus van der Hoeven presents "Stop, Look and Listen",
his weekly commentary on rural Kansas
