How the cmdty Media Network Helps Farm Broadcasters Engage Their Audiences
As of 2019, there are 2.6 million farmers and ranchers across the United States who work day in and day out producing food that individuals from across the world consume every day. Some are dairy farmers, others are ranchers, and some grow corn. However, they all have one thing in common; they all rely on farm broadcasting services to receive vital and local information that helps keep their operations running smoothly.
Most agricultural laborers (a person who performs physical work in fields and on farms) don’t use or even have desks. For these individuals, their truck, tractor, and combine is what they consider to be their office, so being able to receive information on-the-go is a necessary requirement to stay connected. From TV to ag radio and podcasts, farm broadcasting is the only way to make all of this possible.
