Being Social in Agriculture Farmers & ranchers need to be social to stay in tune with what people are saying. With technology comes the ability to get out beyond the local coffee hangout and learn more about other people out there. This AgChat looks at some of the questions people have about telling stories, learning about food, and staying active in the ag and food conversations on and off line.
