Lancaster Farming is the leading Northeast and Mid-Atlantic farm newspaper. It is one of Pennsylvania's most popular farming newspapers and celebrated its 50th anniversary in November 2005. The newspaper includes four basic sections each week. Section A is devoted to breaking news, dairy and beef news, commodity market reports, and upcoming events. Section B, the family section, includes the most comprehensive listing of auctions on the east coast, mailbox markets, a special antiques center, recipes, 4-H and FFA news, and food and nutritional information for the entire family. Sections C and D, the agribusiness center of the paper, include business news, new product information and updates, herd reports, classified news, and other information pertinent to farmers.
