You know how to produce milk. Lots of it. And very efficiently. But those things outside your control never end. Consumers want today's prices and quality produced under conditions and technology from the 1950's. How do you tell them agriculture needs technology to feed 7 billion people?  What don't they understand? Dr. Marty Strauss, Kahn Strauss and Associates, shares how to better bridge that producer / consumer communications gap when today's consumer doesn't really understand what they're getting and why. 

And speaking of consumers, food prices rising. Will they blame ethanol or milk producers? And what will it mean inside the beltway when negotiations on the next Farm Bill begin? American Farm Bureau chief economist Bob Young shares that and more.
