‘Tis the season for not just gifts and celebrations, but also countdowns and Top 10 lists. is not immune to such year-end traditions, and, in the spirit of the holidays (and impending end of the world? Maybe), Shaun Haney and Lyndsey Smith have done an overview of the year’s top ag news and events. Not content, however, to just list the top stories, Shaun and Lyndsey decided to take it one step further and add their thoughts on the news events that shaped 2012.
