Young farmers take social media reins

Young farmers take social media reins

A group of young farmers and ranchers who are actively involved in social media have launched the AgChat Foundation with a mission to empower farmers and ranchers to connect communities through social media platforms.

The foundation was founded by farmers and Farm Bureau members Jeff Fowle of California, Darin Grimm of Kansas, Mike Haley of Ohio and Ray Prock of California. Farm Bureau member Chris Chinn of Missouri is a board member.

“Our goal is to empower farmers and ranchers to build communities through social media and help farmers tell their story,” said Prock, AgChat Foundation board member and co-owner of Ray-Lin Dairy in Denair, Calif. “I think everyone understands the ‘why’ in needing to tell agriculture’s story, as today’s consumers are three to four generations removed from the farm. But I think people get lost when it comes to the ‘how’ part of the equation.”
