Budget cuts plague farm beat

Results from a survey coordinated by the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists show that budget cuts and lack of time to look ahead are common concerns for those on the farm beat. However, with its tiny sampling –12 responded to the questions – this survey begs a larger sampling to add credibility to its results. Note that one of the concerns cited in terms of Canada’s farm beat is media convergence. The survey was published in the May/June issue of the IFAJ’s E-newsletter.
