Seedstock EDGE takes home Most Improved Publication, other awards at AMS

Seedstock EDGE has seen some changes over the past two years. This year it was recognized for its recent facelift with the Most Improved Publication award by the Livestock Publications Council at the recent Agricultural Media Summit.

Building on a strong foundation of past editors and a history of true journalism, while maintaining a steadfast dedication to the pedigreed swine industry, Seedstock EDGE received the award for its redesign at the joint meeting of the American Agricultural Editors’ Association, the Livestock Publications Council and the American Business Media Agri-Council. Held July 23-27 in New Orleans, approximately 600 people attended this event, and publications from many organizations competed in the annual Critique and Contest.

In addition to Most Improved Publication (which compared magazine issues from 2010 compared to 2009), Seedstock EDGE won the following awards:
