  • Dave: Well, Jonathan, I thought this was a particularly good Land Show mainly because we didn’t talk much. That’s what made it good.
  • Johnny: We had some good guests.
  • Dave: We did. We had the old tadpole swam in here, Russ, sorry Russ. Russ Walters from down Andalusia way. We talked about the cooperative shelling plant that he’s a part of. It’s pretty exciting over in Atmore-
  • Johnny: Atmore-
  • Dave: That was pretty neat.
  • Johnny: Yeah, it was. Then, we went to your fish guy, Daniel Davis. We went up to Piedmont, Alabama. The proof is in the pudding, man. He knows what he’s doing, managing and stocking fish ponds. From what I hear and the pictures you send me-
  • Dave: Oh, yeah, he’s-
  • Johnny: Your boastful pictures.
  • Dave: He’s the man. He’s going to bring me some tilapia this year for the first time. I’m looking forward to that.
  • Johnny: It’ll help. I’ll look forward to seeing what he does with the lake there at the deer camp.
  • Dave: Then we went to another beautiful area there. Daniel lives in a beautiful area too. Kate Deloach on the banks of Kelly Creek there, right there where Shelby County and St. Clair County meet right outside of Vincent. They got a beautiful old historic farm, 200 year old farm. They’re growing organic strawberries, which that’s going to excite our wives-
  • Johnny: That’s right-
  • Dave: … our organic wives. That was a great interview. They do a great job.
  • Johnny: They did and then we wrapped it up with our good friend, Andrew Hart with Alabama Ag Credit, was in to talk about some wild game cook-offs that Alabama Ag Credit’s been serving in recently and then just a market update and things that we’ve been talking about on the show. Rates are moving up a little bit. It’s a good time if you’re thinking about buying or selling to go ahead and do it now.
  • Dave: Yeah.
  • Johnny: Particularly if you have a property to sell that you’re not using. There may be an unusual window of time right now to take advantage of this market. So, it’s a good time.
  • Dave: We talked about their cooperative way of doing business. You’re a shareholder. You get a dividend back. We want to thank them, one of our fine sponsors, longtime sponsor of The Land Show. And, folks, we appreciate you watching this video review and encourage you to listen to the entire Land Show with Dave and Johnny.
