Yes, we also have the 'list bug' here at Rural Marketing News. Below, you'll find a report on RMN's most-read articles for 2011. Looking back at 2011, I was amazed at how vibrant marketing to the rural lifestyle market really is. And, while John Deere seemed to dominate the top-ten most-read list, many other businesses, agencies, and media made their mark. Based on current news items, 2012 will be another interesting year for the industry.
