Farm Journal, has been selected as one of the nation's top 25 business publications by BtoB Media Business, the magazine for business publishing executives.
In its June 2006 issue, BtoB Media Business described the 25 publications as having "shaped the business publishing industry." Other publications on the list include Business Week, The Economist, Forbes, Fortune, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.
BtoB Media Business, published by Crain Communications, Inc., picked the "Media Business 100" to reflect the events, people and publications that have shaped the industry. The "Media Business 100" is comprised of the top 25 business publications, top 25 people and top 50 publishing milestones. It commemorates the 100th anniversary of American Business Media (ABM), the industry association for business-to-business information providers.
BtoB Media Business said that FARM JOURNAL "started regional editions in 1952 and switched its focus from a consumer magazine to a b-to-b publication in 1958. In 1982, FARM JOURNAL became the first magazine to bind issues based on customized information, such as crops, livestock and region."
"We are honored that our service to farmers ranks us among the nation's best business publications. To be listed in the ranks along with publications like Fortune, Forbes and The Wall Street Journal is, indeed, high praise," said Sr VP of Editorial Sonja Hillgren.
"FARM JOURNAL has always had a culture of innovation, and it is gratifying to receive this recognition alongside the most widely known brands," said Steve Custer, Exec VP and Publisher.
