You're invited to be part of the heartbeat of our national producer panel that speaks up and speaks out. Participating is as easy as answering two quick poll questions per month via text message from your mobile phone.

The Farm Journal Pulse polls farmers and ranchers for their straight-from-the-farm opinions and crop progress updates. Farm Journal sends you the question via a text message so it's easy to click and respond.

You take a moment to send an anonymous response, and the results are tallied. The next morning you'll be able to see how your answer compares with the rest of the nation. There’s no charge, but as always, any text message fees in your phone plan apply.

Text the word “PULSE” to 31313*.  If you have suggestions of questions you’d like us to ask the national panel, e-mail FJPulse@farmjournal.com.

I agree to receive text messages, telemarketing messages or prerecorded voice calls delivered using an automatic telephone dialing system.  These messages will occasionally be accompanied by marketing messages sent on behalf of carefully selected sponsors that serve the agricultural industry. Consent is not required for purchase of Farm Journal products. Up to 8 text messages per month may be received.  Carrier message & data rates may apply.   To cancel, text “STOP SURVEY”.
