90-Mile View: Eric Neill

Weather plays a major role in agriculture.  Just ask dairyman Eric Neill.  Last summer it was drought, then record snows this past winter.  Now it's rain . . . lots and lots of rain.

In this edition of 90-Mile View, Eric talks with Steve Kraske about the impact the spring rains have had on his operation, the recently concluded calving season, and having his sons working on the farm during summer break.

As senior producer of Up To Date, I want our listeners to hear familiar and new voices that shine light on the issues and challenges facing the myriad communities KCUR serves, and to expose our audiences to the wonderful and the creative in the Kansas City area. Just as important to me is an obligation to mentor the next generation of producers to ensure that the important conversations continue. Reach me at alexanderdk@kcur.org.
