Wisconsin Ag Connection Turns 15!
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/02/2014
One of Wisconsin's main sources for agricultural information on the Internet is celebrating another milestone this week. Wisconsin Ag Connection was launched on June 1, 1999 as the state's first daily source for agricultural news online. It has since expanded to include auction, real estate and used equipment listings; and grew geographically into 15 Midwestern states.
"This is an exciting time to be a part of the agricultural industry--especially in Wisconsin where dairy producers are experiencing higher profits and hopefully better weather than last year," said Pat Sternitzky, who founded the website and continues to run the daily operations of the company. "We are so grateful to our readers and advertisers for making this business a reality. It is our hope to serve the industry with breaking news and access to valuable products and services for many years to come."
The Marshfield-based company also provides professional website design services for agricultural businesses and organizations across the United States and Canada. In 2003 it acquired USAgNet.com, a former agricultural search engine, which now serves as a national portal for the various 'State' Ag Connections
"TractorSearch is currently going through a major expansion," Sternitzky adds. "We are in the process of developing a network with other media outlets this summer to create the nation's largest online database of used farm equipment. As technology becomes more available on the farm, this project aims to do a
better job of connecting buyers and sellers than traditional advertising."
And the site will once again provide up to the minute coverage of the Wisconsin FFA Convention next week.
USAgNet and Wisconsin Ag Connection serve hundreds of clients with advertising and website needs and have thousands of readers on a daily basis.
