The county fair cowboy, Americana phenomenon of the rural lifestyle, annual small town tradition. AgriLife Studios rural lifestyle photography captures the essence of the county fair.
Some folks see farming as hard work, and it certainly is that. But John and Cindy Mages make it look like fun. We met the Mages at their place near Belgrade, Minnesota, for a custom farm photography shoot with the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (visit www.mncorn.org or follow the Minnesota Corn Growers on Facebook). Cindy greeted us with donuts. John was all […]

Form-A-Feed is an employee-owned feed company in central Minnesota working to grow it’s business […]
In case you missed the beginning of the opening session of the #NAMA15 conference here in Kansas City (I know many of my NAMA peeps who are “here” missed it due to “client responsibilities,” a.k.a. “got up late” – you know who you are)… by popular demand, the 2015 AgriLife Studios “Greatness” video.
