This helps drive awareness of and engagement with DTN’s content, experts and industry-leading intelligence products.

The social media editor will routinely train and coach staff on best practices for social platforms. The other 50% of time will be devoted to doing original reporting on issues facing the nation’s next generation of farmers and ranchers as they seek to establish and expand operations. These early- to mid-career farmers are of utmost interest to the agriculture industry at large. This individual will be expected to report on and write news articles as well as create video and audio segments. Topics covered in this person’s content could include business strategies, farm financing, machinery and technology adoption, livestock and crop production.
