Ag on Tap

  • Education

Husband and wife ag radio personalities Sabrina and Rusty Halvorson team up in this upbeat, fun, and informative show about unique ag stories. Together, they get answers to questions others are afraid to ask. Why are pumpkins so hard to grow? How many apples are in a pint of cider? Are alpacas huggable? In each Ag on Tap episode, the Halvorsons chat with a farmer or rancher who shares what it’s really like on the farm. The show is as entertaining for those in the ag industry as it is for consumers who want to know more about the nation’s farmers.

Ag on Tap | Oct 13, 2020

We learn all about alpacas and why they are great for yarn in today's show. Our guest this week is Jessie Monson from Ten Seven Acres.

We almost labeled this one as comedy. Today, pumpkin grower John Ackerman of Ackerman Family Farms tells us about pumpkin farming and agritourism, and helps us with our pumpkin growing woes. He also has a great tip for great Jack-o-Lanterns, and even gives Rusty a little marriage advice. We mention some pictures of our pumpkin growing attempts over the last couple of years.

In this inaugural episode of Ag on Tap, Sabrina and Rusty talk to Dave Carter, Executive Director of the National Bison Association. Hear about CFAP2, bison consumption in the U.S. and other countries, research, conservation, and a couple of fun experiences with bison up close. (Here's a picture Rusty probably doesn't want shared.) Photos by Sabrina
