In today's show, Lorrie talks with the Executive Director of the National Bison Association, Dave Carter.
He talks about how producers are coping with extreme drought conditions and COVID. He highlights interesting consumer trends that are good for the bison industry. A recent study shows consumers trust farmers and ranchers, which Carter says is encouraging for the ag industry and bison producers.
