American Agriculturist’s exhibit at New York Farm Show — just inside the door of the Horticultural Building — is a popular stop for two reasons. First, you can weigh in with your opinions on “hot” or controversial issues with the farmer poll and see daily tabulations of how your opinion stacks with others.
And there’s a second, bigger reason. Sharing your opinion via the poll also qualifies you for the $350 grand prize gift card from Tractor Supply. It also automatically enters you into Farm Progress’ “Big Bucks” $1,000 nationwide drawing. You must be 18 years old or older to do the poll. And just so you know, Farm Progress doesn’t share your ID information with commercial concerns.
The poll questions are…
• How do you rate President Donald Trump’s job performance?
• How might President Trump improve your rating?
• Do you believe U.S. agriculture can play an important role in addressing climate change?
• How has the opioid crisis affected your farm or neighborhood?
• What original positive bit of wisdom has helped you?
• And the easiest question: Which American Agriculturist cover — posted at the exhibit — is your favorite?
One more thing: American Agriculturist’s editor — that’d be me — will be at the exhibit or out wandering around the show with a camera. Be sure to stop me and let me know what content you’d like to see more of on our website and in the magazine.
