This week's headlines include weather, planting progress the first weekly crop conditions report, and pork exports to China. We also kick off our first weekly agronomic update with the folks at REDSTAR LLC. World Pork Expo brought in folks from around the nation this week into Des Moines, and with Iowa's first case of H5N1 reported in dairy cattle, biosecurity remains a top concern. Delaney caught up with Dr. Megan Niederwerder, Executive Director of SHIC, to discuss the potential impact of the disease on the pork industry.

Then Delaney sits down with Terry Johnston of Farm Rescue! Lending a helping hand to families in times of need, Farm Rescue's mission is to help farmers and ranchers who have experienced a major illness, injury, or natural disaster by providing the necessary equipment and volunteer workforce to plant, hay or harvest their crop. Livestock feeding assistance is also available to ranchers.

Farm Rescue helps farm and ranch families in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota, and will soon be expanding to Wisconsin! And be sure to stick around for the end of the show, when we cover a weekly recap of the markets.
