The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation is helping farmers share their stories with the Takeover Tuesday and Ask A Farmer Friday programs.
Takeover Tuesday is the one day a week where a Farm Bureau member maintains the Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Instagram and/or Snapchat account. They use these platforms to talk about their passion for the agricultural community and answer questions from followers.
While Takeover Tuesdays have been a standard social media program for WFBF, this month they will take on a special focus for dairy month.
Farmers and consumers alike can follow along with #WFBFTakeoverTuesday on Instagram as four Wisconsin dairy farmers share photos and talk about what they do daily on the farm. Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Snapchat account will also be full of activity from farmers and dairy-related activities. You can follow along by adding “wifarmbureau” on Snapchat.
Wisconsin Farm Bureau will also be hosting a video series of “Ask A Farmer Fridays”. Each Friday during June, a Wisconsin dairy farmer will answer a common question about dairy cows via video on the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Facebook page. This will also serve as a way for followers to ask questions about farming. Some topics that will be covered include cow comfort, antibiotic use and cow’s diets.
