AGRI-PULSE LAUNCHES SERIES ON CHANGING DEMOGRAPHICS AND RURAL POLITICS
Agri-Pulse reports:

On Monday, July 7, Agri-Pulse published the first article in its six-part series, "Packing a Political Punch in Rural America."

Throughout this in-depth series, Editor Sara Wyant will look at some of the important demographic, economic and political changes taking place in American agriculture and discuss why it may be time for rural America's political influencers to rethink their tactics and strategies, too.

"In recent months, our editorial team talked to a wide variety of farm leaders - both inside and outside of the Beltway - who say this most recent farm bill served as a 'wake-up call' regarding their political effectiveness," explains Wyant.

"Don't get me wrong. There's still plenty of power in farm country, but several of the dynamics are changing.

As one of our sources noted: "Demography is not destiny, but one ignores it at their peril."

As part of the series, which is sponsored by DuPont, Agri-Pulse also will name emerging young farm and rural advocates and share their vision for the future of farm and rural influence.
