Each FarmCast Radio program is divided into four segments. The program follows one of two formats. EitherFour guests are interviewed regarding the main subject of each program, or audio from recent conferences or events is used.
While interviews are about agriculture topics, the goal of FarmCast Radio is to find out what those issues mean to an average consumer.
