About the Fence Post

The Fence Post

The Fence Post is a nationwide agricultural newspaper reaching over 80,000 readers each week. Don McMillen started the Rocky Mountain Fence Post in Bellvue, Colo in 1980. The paper changed ownership in November 1984 and continues to be owned by Swift Communications. We added the Nebraska (Plains) Fence Post in 1995.

The Fence Post contains advertising, auctions, obituaries, recipes, cartoons, event coverage and human interest stories all pertaining to the agricultural business. Our weekly columnist include Baxter Black, Lee Pitts, Gwen Petterson, Mad Jack and many others. We have a strong readership in all phases of farming, ranching and livestock production. Our readers call us their farming and ranching "Bible" where they can find auctions, horse events, ag calendar listings and market reports each week. Our classified section is beneficial to both buyers and sellers. We also do special sections including a quarterly Real Estate Guide, a Breeders Connection, Summer Events Guide, bi-yearly Cookbook's along with other seasonal projects.

Our advertisers, online and print, are a valuable resource to the ag community. We strive to keep a high level of customer service. As readers, dealers and advertisers this is your paper and we are proud to publish the Fence Post each and every week.
