Today's co-hots Paul Wierson and Howard Hammond talk to Emily McColloch of the Boone Chamber of Commerce about the upcoming Pufferbilly Days September 10 - 13.
Then, in today's edition of Tuning In To Agriculture, reporter Greta Anderson visits with Jerry Ryerson, who recently converted 120 acres of bottom ground adjacent to the Skunk River into a wetland through the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). This year many farmers are deciding to take advantage of higher CRP rates to hedge against excessive rainfall and uncertain commodity prices.
