GRAND FORKS, N.D. - The year 2016 will be remembered by many, not solely for the historic presidential election, the continued battles between nations in the Middle East or the economic highs and woes in agriculture, but for the lessons learned as we endured every event.
Agweek is no stranger to lessons and change this year, as Forum Communications Co. continues to challenge its properties to be leading, cutting-edge sources of strong content and breaking news.
Our editorial team and AgweekTV crew strive to provide accurate, current information to spark conversations within the ag community, and we're making some changes to enhance our reader and viewer experience.
We know current market information is important to our readers, and we want to provide the most updated information possible, so, we're trying something new. Recently, we removed some of our markets that were often outdated by the print date, which did not fulfill our promise to meet the needs of readers who wanted current information to gauge commodity prices.
To better serve you, we're going to provide to-the-minute prices for a variety of those same markets on our website in the coming months, which will be available at the touch of a button on the homepage. Readers can then confidently digest the information morning, evening or late at night.
The magazine has also added a collection of new columnists to the lineup to offer their perspectives from all corners of Agweek country. Josh Gackle gives his analysis of farm and community from Kulm, N.D.; Cristen Clark provides recipes and tales from her ranch in Iowa; Jenn Zeller reflects on life in South Dakota; and Shauna Farver imparts wisdom from Montana.
It is Agweek's goal to provide timely information to its readers every day: online, on TV and on the go. And not all of these changes are permanent, but just a trial to see where we can improve.
That's where we need your help.
In the Dec. 19 edition of Agweek, we added a survey that offers a chance to tell us how we're doing. What do we do well? What would you like to see in the magazine, on TV, on the web? We're listening, and we want to know what you think.
You can also complete the survey online at agweek.com.
The Agweek and AgweekTV team hopes you will help us provide the best ag news and market information for you, by giving us a bit of your time.
We thank you for reading and watching as the Agweek brand continues to grow and be a leading source of news and information for all of ag country.
