Farm Bureau acquires leading publications
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The American Farm Bureau Federation announced the acquisition of Cygnus Business Media’s agricultural events and publications. According to an Aug. 5 Farm Bureau press release, the purchase includes five IDEAg branded farm shows -- Minnesota Farmfest, Dakotafest, Amarillo Farm and Ranch Show, Northern Illinois Farm Show, and the IDEAg Interconnectivity Conference. The business also publishes Feed & Grain Magazine and Case IH’s Farm Forum magazine.
Amarillo Farm and Ranch Show has been the essential ag show for High Plains farmers and ranchers for 28 years.
“This acquisition is the union of very strong brands that are deeply rooted in agriculture,” said American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman. “By joining the Farm Bureau family, these publications and events create additional opportunities for us to serve farmers, ranchers, and the stakeholders looking to connect with them.”
The events and publications will operate as part of IDEAg Group, LLC, which is wholly owned by the American Farm Bureau Federation. All of the current managers and staff of the events and publications agreed to continue in their positions.
