Regenerative Agriculture with Dan Cloutier - The Modern Producer Podcast


Good Day!

We've back! We've got a great discussion today with guest Dan Cloutier from Agrihub. Today we're discussing regenerative agriculture and three key areas, vertical farming, biogas and net zero building operations. Sustainable agriculture is a popular topic and as Dan explains it, "a lifestyle designed for permanence". There is a lot to cover and we hope you enjoy this chat! 

Small Hog Barn Project with Big Impact


I was contacted a while ago by someone from the NCFAD, which if you are like me, you can be forgiven for not having a hot clue what that is. So I asked, and was told that The National Center for Foreign Animal Disease is part of CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) and is located in the Canadian Science Center for Human and Animal Health which also houses the Public Health Agency of Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg, MB. That should be enough governmental alphabet soup to make anyone turn and run the other way, but I decided that I would at least hear them out on what they required from me. 

Colony Highlight: Platte Colony, Platte, South Dakota


On a late Fall day, New Standard’s Ben Cochran and marketing staff, Jake Peterson and Celene Olson, were invited to Platte Colony in central South Dakota, about two hours west of Sioux Falls. The opportunity? To learn what the day in the life of a Hutterite looks like. New Standard has had the pleasure of working with many colonies around the US and Canada, and we wanted to highlight the way of the Hutterites.

So What's Next: Darren Sloan


The New Standard team is all about the advancement of taking care of our animals in this industry. So are quite a few of our producers we come across in this field. Over the course of our time as a company, we were always curious what the future of farming could be. We sat down with a handful of producers to ask just that. What they enjoy currently, and what, realistically or not, would they like to see in the next 10 years for the advancement of farming.
