Ohio Ag Blogs: Click on Over

On the farm, there is always something interesting to write a blog about.

First it was Facebook, then Twitter. Now blogs are becoming a way the agriculture community communicates to the public and with each other.

At Acorns for Thought, hog farmer Charles Wildman uses his blog to communicate his views on food production to the public. He says Facebook, Twitter and blogs are all important. With limited characters on Facebook and Twitter, his blog allows for a fuller explanation of his thoughts.

His son Sam Wildman, a student at Ohio State ATI has also started blogging. Reflections from a Country Boy is where he shares his thoughts on issues affecting agriculture and their farm.

United Landmark agronomist Auggie Smith uses his blog to better communicate with his growers and provide up to the minute data on issues affecting the crop in his area. His biggest challenge though? Time. He tries to update his blog regularly, but admits sometimes its hard to find time during the busy growing season.

With a quick Google search people who are seeking out information are getting views from more than just media. Real people, in this case real farmers and agribusiness, are telling their stories.

Some blogs are educational while others provide a source of entertainment. One thing is for sure though, blogs are quickly becoming a source where people get their information.

I’ve complied a list of the ag related blogs I know of. Do you know of others?
