Kicking off the first episode in 2022 of the River Country Ag Show, we had recurring guest Katie McLachlan with the Peace Country Beef and Forage Association.
McLachlan is the Interim Operations Manager with PCBFA and says goals they are trying to achieve this year is being able to have in-person events again come summertime for extension programming. “It’s gonna be a really great summer extension-wise; events, field tours… it’s gonna be awesome.”
