The National Association of Farm Broadcasting is coming out with a new ad to position its members as a great media vehicle to reach what they call the “New Rural.”
I have no motivation or inspiration to do a year in review so I’m glad that others are taking care of these duties. I guess I think that if anyone wants to know about the year at AgWired they can just scroll down!
Farm broadcasters were busy last week at their convention. NAFB, Executive Director, Bill O’Neill just sent out a report that announces the change in the organization’s name. It’s now the National Association of Farm Broadcasting. This was done he says to better represent the “full inclusion of agribusinesses, marketing and communications agencies, farm organizations, and all “allied” providers who are integral to the business and marketplace of farm and rural lifestyle broadcasting.”

The auction was a very lively one this year. Cliff Mitchell, KASM, is doing the duty in this photo.

At the NAFB Convention a fun highlight is the Foundation auction. One of the items they auction off is the use of a McCormick tractor for a year. Here’s Southeast AgNet’s Gary Cooper trying it out beforehand to see if it’s what he needs back home.
Earlier this week we alerted you to the new promotion that New Holland’s doing with the new Michael Peterson album. Here’s Cindy and me with Michael earlier today after I got to interview him. That’s one of those interviews that I hope to have for you soon.
Here’s an early picture of the AGCO crew at Trade Talk. They look fresh and ready to go. I wonder what an “after” picture would look like?
