I’m likely the only mum of two young kids that you’ll see taking pictures of weed seedlings on the way to the park. I do it for a few reasons. One, I work in farm media, you never know when you’re going to need a really great shot of a lamb’s quarters seedling (trust me,… Read More

In this episode of Thumbs up, Thumbs down, RealAgriculture.com’s fearless leaders Shaun Haney and Lyndsey Smith talk government retaliation measures, or rather the lack thereof, in the COOL fiasco, Lyndsey suggests a statute of limitations on blaming previous governments for today’s problems and Shaun professes his love of wrestling.

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any weirder…A new, free app for Androids and iPhones has been launched. The app, christened “Buycott,” and developed by Buycott Inc. (an overwhelming amount of creativity, I know), allows users to join a number of campaigns of their choice and make purchase decisions based on the “campaign targets.”… Read More

As I passed through security at the Winnipeg airport last night I ran into this sign.  First of all any sign that directs you to where the coffee is, packs a lot of importance for any road warrior.  Whether you enjoy a daily visit to the coffee shop with friends or you just need that morning caffeine pick me… Read More

The Harlem Shake is something that seems to be the YouTube craze of the month.  Agriculture even got into the mix and represented.  In this video, agriculture was represented by North American based ad-agency AdFarm.  Not sure which AdFarm office made the video but the costumes are pretty funny.  Also noticeable is the liquid courage on the table to get everyone… Read More

This latest farm-themed video comes from Derek Klingenberg of Klingenberg Farms, based at Kansas.  Based on “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore, a rather, um, expletive riddled song, Ranching Awesome takes it 180 degrees and makes it all about the family ranch. Enjoy! For the Peterson… Read More

Some people go to the NCBA to visit the immense trade show.  Some go for the in-depth committee meetings.  Some people even go just for the opening keynote speaker or the Cattlefax presentation.

On Twitter yesterday Rick Taillieu, Alberta Canola, was having some fun at my expense (which at times is not really difficult). When you post a YouTube video, it grabs a screen shot to display at the front of the video before you press play. Some of the screen grabs are less than ideal in terms… Read More

In my time with RealAgriculture.com I have seen some great ads, okay ads and some real ineffective ones.  Traditional agriculture advertising is very conservative and tends to follow the, “we don’t want to offend anyone” mantra. Well the CWB has stepped out and tried to grab your attention.  What do you think.  Does this fine… Read More

Sometimes during the long winter grind of farm shows you need something to make you smile.  we definitely found that smile in the Yara booth at the Crop Production Show in Saskatchewan. SEE MORE CROPWEEK 2013 COVERAGE Showcasing some beauty Norwegian flag pants, the Yara team did a great job of gaining attention to their… Read More
