For 70 years, the Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association has been the voice of manufacturers of specialized farm equipment. From small, family-run businesses to multi-national corporations, members rely on the Association to stay on top of industry news.
We deliver that news through a 20-times-a-year newsletter and a quarterly magazine.
Advertisers in these publications enjoy access to an attentive and well-defined audience: about 2,000 decision-makers at nearly 700 companies throughout North America who represent every link in the supply chain. When you advertise with the Association, you partner with a trusted source in the farm equipment industry.
Partner with the Association to send a message to shortline manufacturers by advertising in Ag Innovator and Shortliner.
The magazine this year transitions to a semi-annual print publication. The two printed editions will have digital companions, and two additional issues will be digital-only.
Regardless of format, each issue will shine a spotlight on a member company, explore issues in agriculture, manufacturing, and plant management, and share business advice customized for shortline manufacturers.
As we build the digital infrastructure for the magazine, our deadline/publication schedule remains in flux. Clarity should be days away. Please check back for details, or call (314) 878-2304.
Print specifications are detailed near the bottom of this page.
This 20-times a year, eight-page newsletter offers snapshots of news relevant to members: legislation, court decisions, business mergers, changes in regulation, and updates on member companies. Our members rank Shortliner among their most valued benefits.
The newsletter typically publishes on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month. It is distributed electronically and by mail. Advertisers are automatically featured in both. For the online version, advertisers should provide a URL; you may be asked to supply a second ad with web-friendly specifications.
The deadline to reserve ad space is 10 business days before publication. Ads must be submitted five days before publication. Print specifications are
