Big Farm, Big Family, Healthy Kids

Big Farm, Big Family, Healthy Kids | Dairy Cattle Animal Health | Scoop.it

A recent ABC News story highlights studies that suggest that families living on farms are healthier. The research cited focused on allergies, stating "non-farm families are diagnosed with asthma nearly twice as much as their farm-dwelling counterparts". Additional studies referenced in the story state "that babies raised around dogs are 31 percent more likely to be healthy".

 

The implications are that living on a farm will make you healthier, compared to non-farm families.

Pfizer tackles social media

Pfizer tackles social media | Dairy Cattle Animal Health | Scoop.it
The minute we’re born, we begin to age. This was apparently the number one concern occupying respondents of a 2011 Gallup survey commissioned by pharma giant Pfizer and the finding upon which the company has based its Get Old social media campaign.

In a press release announcing the multi-year initiative that began last month, Pfizer tied it to the company’s larger mission of improving the health of all people at every stage of life.

PR platitudes aside, the initiative also marks Pfizer’s lengthening social media shadow, cast, in part, by CEO Ian Read, who has criticized the industry for being “slow to adapt” to today’s more open society. Pharma’s hesitation no doubt informs Edelman’s 2011 Trust Barometer, which found public confidence in businesses, governments, and, in a new development, NGOs slipping at a noticeable rate.

What Do We Know About Agriculture Media?

What Do We Know About Agriculture Media? | Dairy Cattle Animal Health | Scoop.it

Ag media is a very defined media market. How is it influenced by general media trends? 

 

In Q2 2012 Truffle Media ran a survey focused on people in agriculture media, marketing, public relations, advertising, or communications. The aim was to get a better sense of what people thought about traditional (radio, print, TV) versus digital (web, social, mobile) marketing and PR.

 

While the analysis and understanding of the data is a work in progress, the aggregated data and aggregated report (both de-identified) are available for use.
