This Week in Louisiana Agriculture

This Week in Louisiana Agriculture

Bringing Louisiana Farmers & Consumers Together Every Week.

 

Connecting Consumers and Louisiana Agriculture

TWILA, the creation of former Louisiana Farm Bureau Public Relations Director and TWILA Host Regnal Wallace, is seen on 18 broadcast and cable stations across Louisiana and nationally on RFD-TV. The program is one of the longest-running television programs produced in Louisiana. 

Each week co-hosts Avery Davidson and Kristen Oaks-White, along with TWILA's team of producers and reporters Neil Melancon, Karl Wiggers and Monica Velasquez travel the state telling farmers' stories.

Over the years the show’s content has moved beyond just row crop production to include environmental, legislative and consumer issues. The program was cited by a member of the state’s Senate Ag Committee as a “video lesson on the importance of agriculture.”

Highlights from this week’s show


Food & Fireworks

The July 4th holiday may be over, but most of us will continue to fire up the grill all summer long. As TWILA’s Neil Melancon tells us, steady prices at the grocery store will help to keep that summer tradition alive. #july4th #grillingseason

High Waters

On the day we filmed this TWILA episode, Tropical Storm #Barry was just beginning to form in the Gulf of Mexico. The outer bands of the tropical system dumped more than eight inches of rain on New Orleans, flooding many parts of the city that same day. As Louisiana residents brace for Barry’s landfall tomorrow, we will continue to bring you the latest news and coverage of the storm. Stay safe this weekend. #LouisianaStrong


Cotton: The Fabric of Home

According to a recent Nielsen Study, 81% of consumers "feel strongly that companies should help improve the environment." While "sustainability" may be a new trending buzzword in corporate America, conservation has always been a top priority for farmers and ranchers. As stewards of the land, farmers want their land to be sustainable for generations to come. This week, TWILA's Karl Wiggers introduces us to a 4th generation farmer in Tensas Parish who is pulling back the curtain to show consumers how he cares for his land. #cotton


TWILA Boost -- The Farm Bureau Family

In preparation for the 97th Annual Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation Convention, we asked several of our Farm Bureau members and volunteer leaders to explain what this organization means to them. Some said Farm Bureau is a unified voice for agriculture; some said the organization offers opportunity and empowerment for members. But the most common and unified response was simple: Farm Bureau is truly a family. #lfbf19
