If you’re one of the nearly 9,000 people who receive Feed & Grain’s Industry Watch E-newsletter, thank you for taking the time each week to open and read our offering. Our staff closely follows news on the critical issues that impact the feed and grain industry, and we’re dedicated to sharing it with you in an easy-to-read format.
For the past two years, we’ve been mailing Industry Watch each Tuesday and Thursday, and we can see that many of you regularly click on the stories that matter most to you. Our newsletter stories, covering topics from the 2012 drought, Hurricane Isaac, Renewable Fuel Standard repeal, the Farm Bill and the presidential election, have become some of the most popular items on our web site this summer.
Between the success of Industry Watch and the results of a recent reader survey, the message is loud and clear: News is very important to you! So, starting Monday Sept. 17, Feed & Grain will be adding a third installment to our Industry Watch schedule.
Think of our Monday e-newsletter as the feed and grain industry’s “Weekend Update” — sadly without the hilarity of Saturday Night Live's Amy Poehler’s or Seth Meyers’ delivery — featuring top headlines from Friday through Sunday, because we know that weather, political campaigning and even legislation doesn’t stop over the weekend. You don’t have to do anything to receive the third mailing — everyone who currently receives Industry Watch will receive the new Monday edition.
And breaking news isn’t the only reason to check out Industry Watch. Our format includes a Web Exclusive section with blog postings, videos, infographics and articles selected for online delivery only (you won’t find these in print!) as well as Supplier Briefs, covering the latest news from equipment manufacturers, distributors and service providers. It also provides access to some of Feed & Grain’s staple offerings, such as a digital edition of our current issue and links to all of our Online Buyer’s Guide categories.
So again, thank you for your loyalty to Feed & Grain’s Industry Watch, and let us know what else we can do to improve it. And if you don’t already subscribe, simply register to start staying connected to the industry through our e-newsletter.
