Farmers online


In this photo taken Tuesday, June 29, 2010, dairyman Ray Prock tweets with his cell phone phone at Ray-Lin Dairy in Denair, Calif. To increase farmers' presence online, Prock also helped kick off a grassroots movement to encourage direct communication with consumers over the Internet. Prock and a handful of other farmers have started AgChat Foundation, an organization aimed at encouraging farmers to get on YouTube, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and other sites to explain what they do on the farm and answer questions from the public.
