Briggsdale, CO, February 2, 2018– Starting this month…Brian Allmer, host/owner of BARN Media, which includes The BARN, and the Colorado Ag News Network has been named the new host of FarmCast Radio. Too often people hear negative news about agriculture and producers. Much of this information is generated by reporters who have very little experience, especially in rural areas. Agriculture is the 2nd largest industry in the state and affects us all. Every weekend, FarmCast Radio discusses the issues involving agriculture and how they effect consumers.

“FarmCast Radio was born in 2008 from the idea that the agriculture industry is very good at talking to each other, but we needed to work on how we related to the actual consumers of our products.  The radio show has always been a way to try and speak on the consumer level without using all of our insider jargon.  I am proud that over the last 10 years FarmCast Radio has been able to tell the incredible story of agriculture in a way that is relatable to all consumers, whether you live on a farm or in the suburbs. I’m excited that radio veteran Brian Allmer is taking over the show. His passion for agriculture and his established industry contacts will carry FarmCast Radio to the next level of telling that story.” – Jeremy Weathers

FarmCast Radio was conceived and launched originally in 2008 by the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee and continues to support it.

“Jeremy did a great job of managing the program to tell agriculture’s important story.  Both he and Brian have deep roots in Colorado agriculture as well as the ability to understand and translate what are often complex yet important topics.  We look forward to working with Brian to continue the FarmCast outreach.” – Mark Sponsler, CO Corn CEO

FarmCast Radio features interviews with Colorado’s Commissioner of Agriculture, CO Department of Agriculture Staff and also features interviews with farmers, state trade organizations and national organizations too. Previous guests on FarmCast Radio included: Colorado Supreme Court Justice Greg Hobbs, United States Senator Cory Gardner, Governor John Hickenlooper, various State Senators and Representatives, former Miss America Theresa Scanlon, agriculture organization spokespersons just to name a few. FarmCast Radio has also featured audio from numerous agriculture events from around the nation and here in Colorado too.

More about the new host of FarmCast Radio…Brian Allmer has been in agriculture broadcasting since 2005, and has lived in Northeastern Colorado his entire life. Allmer is dedicated to covering the agriculture issues that those involved in agriculture face today in the United States and in Colorado. Barn Media originated in 2007 and the Colorado Agriculture News Network was added in January of 2012.

Allmer is a proud member of the NAFB -The National Association of Farm Broadcasters (NAFB Broadcast Member 2006 – Present). Allmer’s lifelong goal is to promote agriculture in a positive way and to shine the light along that journey on the hard-working young women & men involved in Colorado’s 4H &  FFA organizations. Learn more about Allmer as well as more about the BARN, the Colorado Ag News Network and the Livestream webcasting BARN Media does online @ https://brianallmerradionetwork.wordpress.com/about-the-barn/.

“I am very excited about the opportunity that Colorado Corn & the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee has given me as well as the shows sponsors. I know I have some big shoes to fill…and I hope I measure up. I also wish Jeremy Weathers all the best in his future endeavors and look forward to what’s ahead for FarmCast Radio.” – Brian Allmer
