The University of Minnesota Extension Service has produced a new podcast series for farmers called "The Gopher Coffee Shop." We are definitely already in the busy winter meeting time for farmers. Often times there are a number of educational meetings that a farmer would like to attend but just does not have the time, or it is a long drive to get to. I suspect this is why the Gopher Coffee Shop Podcast was developed!

The Gopher Coffee Shop podcast is hosted by Extension Educators Brad Carlson and Ryan Miller and covers a wide range of crop production issues. The format is much more conversational than many podcasts and features a wide range of guests. Some from within the University and some outside the University.

The nice part about the podcasts is they can be viewed when you have time on your schedule. Plus, you do not have to drive anywhere and you get good research based information.
