The U.S. Postal Service reconfigured its mail handling operations in regard to delivery of periodicals May 11, 2006. Farm and Dairy falls under this classification.
What does this mean for our readers? While most of you, our customers, are unaffected by the changes, some have experienced delivery problems. Our circulation department works on a case-by-case basis with the postal service to resolve delivery problems, but we need your help.
If you don’t get your Farm and Dairy consistently on Thursday or Friday, give us a call. To report poor delivery, please call our circulation director, Howard Marsh, or his assistant, Peggy Zimmerman, at 800-837-3419 or e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, I invite ALL subscribers to view our Web site, www.farmanddairy.com, and complete a quick survey about the delivery of your Farm and Dairy.
With your assistance, we will be able to determine the extent of the problem and eliminate trouble zones within a delivery area. For helping us, we’ll enter your name into a drawing for an additional one year extension to your existing subscription.
All auctions are online. Also, I would like to remind you that ALL auctions are viewable online to subscribers of Farm and Dairy at no additional cost.
If you can’t wait for the paper to arrive, go online. Each week, the auctions are activated by 9 a.m. Thursday.
If you have not registered to view the auctions online (it’s free), I invite you to do so at www.farmanddairy.com. Under the “Ads” heading along the left-hand side of the home page, please click on “Auction ads” and follow the instructions. It’s quick and easy and you will benefit from such features as keyword searchability.
Thanks for the calls. While we never want to hear bad news, I think it’s great that you have been sounding off.
Here’s why. It means that you value what we do and that you look forward each week to see what Farm and Dairy has to offer.
Please continue the calls and e-mails and please don’t forget to complete our survey. Our success depends on you and we’re working hard to restore the level of service you have come to expect from us.
