    I just sebscribed via email, and am interested in how your publication promotes farmers, since I am a farmer and want to be involved with positive public relations which showcase agriculture favorably. If you consider this an asset to your publication, maybe we could link and discuss this further? Currently I am County Executive Director for the Upper Sandusky (Wyandot County) Farm Service Agency (USDA). I offer an extensive background with livestock and grain farming (since childhood), plan to retire within the next year or so, and possess writing and publishing skills which may be helpful. Chasity is a cousin to my husband and close friend to our daughter-in-law and I am looking forward to connecting?
