NAMA Webinar: What Farmers Really Want

Written by NAMA on Sunday, November 17, 2019 , 8:37 am

Marketers have numerous tactics at their disposal to try to connect with and elicit action from farmers. From digital to traditional and everything in-between, marketers strategically choose tactics and couple them with creative that will hopefully resonate with farmers. But do we really know what farmers want? Do they truly like seeing fields and sunsets, or does humor have more impact?

Please join us as Emily Shea, Executive Creative Director, and Marki Landerud, Account and Business Development Director, of Stephan & Brady, share research that uncovers the answers to these questions and more.

National Ag Day Set for March 24, 2020

Written by NAMA on Friday, November 1, 2019 , 12:30 pm

National Agriculture Day is set for March 24, 2020. This will mark the 47th anniversary of National Ag Day which is celebrated in classrooms and communities across the country. The theme for National Ag Day 2020 is “Food Brings Everyone to the Table.”

On March 24, 2020, the ACA will host major events in the nation’s capital including an event at the USDA as well as a Taste of Agriculture Celebration at the Library of Congress.  Additionally, the ACA will bring approximately 100 college students to Washington to deliver the message of Ag Day to the Hill.

These events honor National Agriculture Day and mark a nationwide effort to tell the true story of American agriculture and remind citizens that agriculture is a part of all of us. Many agricultural associations, corporations, students and government organizations involved in agriculture are expected to participate.

National Ag Day is organized by the Agriculture Council of America which is managed by NAMA.

In addition to the events in Washington, DC on March 24, the ACA will once again feature the Ag Day Essay Contest. The winning essay will be presented on National Ag Day.

There’s many sponsorship opportunities available. Visit for more information on National Ag Day 2020.
