Illini Farm Report and Other Podcasts Are Available on the Web
University of Illinois Extension has added podcasts to its home page. You can hear farm news and information from the College of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences. Each week host Todd Gleason, broadcast news journalist with University of Illinois Information Technology and Communication Services, will bring you a series of reports on the latest happenings in Illinois agriculture. More often than not, Todd will talk with the authors of the Bulletin. Next week the available podcasts will be expanded to include commodity market information that Todd hosts for WILL AM 580 radio.
You can check out the latest Illini Farm Report programming on-line. A podcast is simply radio on your computer. You can think of it much like the difference between sending a letter via the U.S. Post Office, FedEx, UPS, or fax. It's all the same information, just a different delivery method. With podcasts, the information delivery is direct and convenient.--Todd Gleason and Kevin Steffey
