For more than a quarter-century, farmers and ranchers have turned to AgDay each weekday morning for a daily dose of news, weather and market information. Covering all aspects and all corners of farm country, AgDay provides up-to-the-minute news and analysis that producers can use to make better decisions for their operation.

Hosted by Clinton Griffiths, AgDay has been on the air since 1982. Clinton is joined each day by veteran AgriBusiness Director Al Pell, award-winning meteorologist Mike Hoffman and a team of reporters covering specific regions of the country, including Michelle Rook in the Northern Plains and Erica Goss in the Cotton Belt. As part of the Farm Journal Media team, AgDay marshals the journalistic resources found companywide, including regular contributions from FARM JOURNAL and TOP PRODUCER magazines, the Pro Farmer newsletter and the website.


In addition to timely news and market insight, AgDay reaches out to consumers with its daily “Food and Your Family” report. From food safety to health news, this report showcases the many ways agriculture impacts everyone. The program also offers a daily slice of Americana titled “In the Country-” a look at the people and places that make rural America such an inviting place to live and explore.

Featuring 260 new programs every year, AgDay airs weekday mornings on RFD-TV, “Rural America’s Most Important Network.” To learn more about the program, head online to  AgDay...The Country Experience.
