Hear how the Rural Opportunity Initiative is partnering with land grant universities to bring development to rural America, how the NCBA is reacting to the USDA’s decision on lab-grown protein, and Todd Horwitz discusses what’s been happening in the markets.


Matt McKenna served under USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack. He’s also the founder of Georgetown University’s Rural Opportunity Initiative (ROI) which partners with the USDA and land grant colleges to build awareness with land grant universities that there are business opportunities in places that are “looked over.” McKenna shares some successes ROI has had, the recent conference held in Washington D.C., and what could be coming down the pipeline.

Earlier this month, the USDA and FDA announced a joint regulation of lab-grown foods. Danielle Beck, the director of government affairs for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, discusses the next steps for the protein and what the organization is doing with that announcement.

Todd “Bubba” Horwitz of BubbaTrading.com talks equities, grains and energies.
