New Media in agriculture, some examples
Here are some examples of Ag related new media being produced.

SwineCast, http://SwineCast.com, a podcast series all about the production and management in the swine industry.
CircoFLEX Lab Dance by Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. The shift here is not the video but an example of a serious companies letting go a bit by utilizing widely available media sharing (YouTube) sites to deliver a message. Note the number of times the video has been watched. Not lots but not small. Note that YouTube counts a view only if the whoe video has been played, so partial plays do not count.
These examples are not meant to be comprehensive, just a sample of how "new media" is being used to tell a story, share information, and entertain you with ag focused content.... I wish there were a better name than "content"; sound like I am talking about feed, water, or gravel.
