Agriculture Today Radio Program Wednesday, November 27

NOTE:  The Kansas State University campus will be closed on Thursday-
Friday, November 28-29, for the Thanksgiving holiday...therefore,
there will be no Agriculture Today broadcasts on either of those
days. We'll resume the normal broadcast schedule on Monday, December

Wednesday's program:

K-State agricultural economist Mykel Taylor talks about a new
analysis of the cost of forward contracting wheat in Kansas, which
considers the high volatility in local grain basis the last several
years, and how that has impacted the "risk premium" required by grain
elevators when offering forward contracts to producers

Agricultural law specialist Roger McEowen of Iowa State University
discusses a court ruling on a hog farm odor case, in which the hog
operation's insurer attempted to get out of representing the operator
in the suit...he also looks at an interesting tax court ruling on
church parsonages

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

Agriculture Today is broadcast each weekday morning at 10:00 on KFRM
Radio, Clay Center (550 AM) and KLOE Radio, Goodland (730 AM), which
collectively reach 75 counties in Kansas, parts of southern Nebraska, eastern
Colorado and northern Oklahoma...the broadcast can also be heard over the
K-State Radio Network website. Also see the Agriculture Today archives.
