In total, Global Ag Media have acquired nine sites, including The Poultry Site and The Pig Site (see full list of sites acquired below). Established in 1999 – 2000, The Pig Site and The Poultry Site’s readership and usage have grown steadily in recent years, and many of the acquired sites are now the go-to source of information for their respective agriculture industry sectors.

“We are eager to build on the newly designed platforms for The Pig Site and The Poultry Site,” said Sarah Mikesell of Global Ag Media. “We see significant growth and development opportunities for The Cattle Site and the Spanish language sites with plans underway to advance news and content as well as marketing options for sponsors.”

Nigel Balmforth, Head of Publishing within Benchmark’s Knowledge Services Division added: “We are delighted that the websites have moved to Global Ag Media, who will facilitate the further evolution of the sites, while maintaining their industry-leading position of providing independent news and features of cutting-edge importance for global agriculture.”
