Happy New Year Survey Winner

Cindy Zimmerman

The new year is starting off a little greener for the latest winner in our ZimmComm publication survey drawing.

The winner for December is Michelle Stahlhut, an Agwired reader and crop farmer from Indiana. Michelle actually filled out her survey in November and since we put all the entries back in the pot for the next month, she was the lucky pick today and will be receiving a check for $250 from us.

Among the topics that Michelle says she would like see covered by us in 2011 are sustainability, beginning farmer programs, organic industry, small farm policy, meat processing.

Sustainability is definitely the topic that most people who have responded to the survey so far would like to see more coverage about. Many of those who responded to that question said they appreciate the wide variety of topics we cover here on Agwired, especially new technology.

Here are a few interesting notes about our Agwired readers that we have learned so far:

Occupation –
22% Advertising/Marketing/Sales
19% Communications/PR
19% Production Agriculture (livestock or crop)

43% follow Agwired on Twitter

Topics of most interest – Agribusiness 80%; Policy 54%; Farming 53%

The survey continues through January, so please fill it out before the end of the month, if you haven’t done so yet. All entries received so far will be entered to win in the last drawing for $250, which will be held on February 1.
