ZimmComm New Media announces a new look for AgWired.com and changes for PrecisionPays.com and WorldDairyDiary.com. These changes expand the AgWired brand and set up future growth opportunities as well.
Animal Agriculture: To better serve the animal agriculture segment of the industry, WorldDairyDiary.com is being consolidated under the name Animal.Agwired.com, which will offer news and information about all segments of livestock and poultry. “We regularly cover events such as the International Production and Processing Expo, World Pork Expo, and national beef cattle meetings, in addition to World Dairy Expo,” said ZimmComm president Chuck Zimmerman. “We wanted to consolidate all of our animal agriculture coverage into one site to make it easier for our readers to access.”
Precision Agriculture: PrecisionPays.com is now Precision.Agwired.com and will continue to include the latest news and information about precision agriculture, conservation, biotechnology and more. “Both websites (PrecisionPays and WorldDairyDiary) will remain accessible under the old URLs,” said Zimmerman. “But they will now also be prominently featured on the AgWired.com home page.”
AgWired App: Besides the iOS and Android store app we’ve had for years, you can now create the AgWired App on your mobile device yourself. It’s easy. Just visit AgWired.com on your mobile device of choice and a popup will ask if you want to create a desktop icon. AgWired will then open with a click of the app in a very user-friendly format. Full instructions are included in an instructional video on YouTube.
AgWired.com is ZimmComm’s flagship agribusiness news and information site, started in August of 2004. WorldDairyDiary began the following year and Precision Pays was started in February 2007. “The new design will provide consistency in the look of ZimmComm’s major agricultural websites,” Zimmerman added. DomesticFuel.com, started in September 2005, will also sport a new look consistent with the other sites, but will remain under its current name.
Companies interested in sponsorship opportunities in the AgWired community should contact Dave Larson for availability and pricing.
Other ZimmComm on-line services include AgNewsWire.com for news release distribution and audio from all websites – a service to all agricultural media, as well as ZimmComm.biz, the company information site.
