This week, Valene gives an overview of what she's been hearing from producers in the countryside. She talks about how some producers are looking to expand, but can't get the necessary feed delivered. It's not an issue of supply or demand, but rather labor. We're heading into a droughty crop season and there's lot of speculation on whether there's going to be enough water to get farmers through the year. At the end, we remind each other how important it is to have a support system, and the value of taking a step back, a deep breath, and maybe a cocktail on the back porch to let perspective gain a little ground.
