On October 3, we e-mailed to those subscribers who have provided us with their e-mail address their issue of the new AgriMarketing Digital . The online issue includes the entire contents of the magazine including its news columns, feature articles and ads with hotlinks to various helpful Web sites. It was sent a full week before this printed issue of the magazine mailed, speeding the delivery and providing immediate access to it while folks are traveling. It also has a great search engine, allowing users to quickly find information contained in the magazine by organization's name, individuals, etc. If you did not receive AgriMarketing Digital, go to www.AgriMarketing.com and in the left hand column access the link "Renew Your Subscription" and provide your e-mail address. Make sure your IT staff has "white listed" the AgriMarketingDigital domain. We especially want to thank FARM JOURNAL MEDIA for sponsoring this new age of electronic delivery of AgriMarketing! AGRIBUSINESS EMPLOYERS GUIDE This month's issue of AgriMarketing also includes the supplement "Agribusiness Employers Guide." In addition to being distributed to the magazine's current list of sub- scribers, it is also being handed out at ag college career fairs and to each NAMA student chapter.
