I know the headline suggests competition although the reality is that these are two very different services. But I’m often asked what the difference is between our AgNewsWire.AgWired.com service and the NAFB member service called NFBS.

This client wondered if we could provide the same information. The short answer is “no.”
I was very excited to see the “Selected Media Use By Commercial Producers: A Qualitative Research Summary” report that came in the mail last week. Try to say that title 5 times real fast.
I can’t believe another year has gone by so quickly and that we’re looking ahead to the NAFB fall meeting. But it’s true. So, here’s one thing you creative types need to think about if you want some recognition for your work.

According to the latest NAFB eChats they’ve got a new qualitative farmer media use study out that says farmer use of iPods and other digital audio devices has grown to about 5 percent! This seems like pretty fast growth to me when you consider that they didn’t even exist just a couple years ago. I guess it’s kind of like radio back when it got started. How many farmer had one in the first 2 years? Was it 5 percent?
A high-school junior from Wisconsin was named the national winner of the 2006 Ag Day Essay Contest
The NAFB Foundation is a great program because it’s all about the future and helping the young people who will be a part of that future. It’s the kind of program I wish all organizations had. We have always supported it. Here’s who will be receiving grants from the foundation to help with their internships this year.
