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
Making hay while the sun shines
The Mississippi River is looking a lot different in September than the rest of the year. It seemed it was never going to go back to normal, but after 212 days, it finally is. Believe it or not, some folks are still dealing with the effects.
4-H Shooting sports on target
You've likely seen the news about Louisiana's Eastbank Little League baseball team winning the World Series, but did you know the state is also home to another national title team that's always on target. In June, the Louisiana 4-H Shooting Sports team won the national championships in Grand Island, Nebraska.

A few weeks ago, a small farm in Jeff Davis parish gained a couple of new mouths to feed. One Louisiana man saw a calf that had a leg up on the others at the Kinder livestock auction. As TWILA’s Karl Wiggers shows us, he may have come home with an even pair of mouths, but an odd number of hooves, just adding to the unique farm of Matt Alexander.
