Farms.com Acquires AgBuyersGuide Publication

(Guelph, Ontario) --   Farms.com is pleased to announce that it has acquired the monthly publication AgBuyersGuide from Trader Corporation.  With a prestigious history that started in the late 1980s, AgBuyersGuide has grown to become the most widely distributed agricultural publication in Ontario.  AgBuyersGuide is designed specifically for farmers and agribusiness organizations across the province.

The agricultural industry continues to evolve and flourish as new markets and new technologies are used by farmers across various segments of the industry.  Matching technology needs to specific agriculture needs has resulted in an increasingly sophisticated market with increasingly complex equipment & product needs.

“We are extremely pleased to be able to add the AgBuyersGuide publication to our suite of offerings”, says Graham Dyer, President of Farms.com.  “With our digital and agriculture experience, we believe that we can offer immediate enhanced value to the AgBuyersGuide readers, as well as to the loyal AgBuyersGuide advertising customers.”

To ensure a smooth transition and consistency for both AgBuyersGuide readers and advertisers, Farms.com has welcomed the existing AgBuyersGuide Marketing Advisors: Jeff Scott and Scott Farhood to the Farms.com team.

In addition, to compliment this existing team, and to continue to drive and grow the AgBuyersGuide business, Farms.com has also appointed Diane Houlachan as Business Sales Manager of the AgBuyersGuide business unit.  Diane was previously employed with Trader as Sales Manager for AgBuyersGuide and then latterly, as Senior Sales Manager for the AutoTrader segment of Trader Corp.

“Diane, Jeff and Scott are well-respected within the current client base and bring a depth of knowledge to the Farms.com team that is highly valued,” says Dyer. “We believe that combined with Farms.com’s agriculture and technology focus we will be able to better serve AgBuyersGuide readers and advertisers.”
