Welcome to the Pioneer Hi-Bred “Forage Forum,” the first and only podcast for dairy producers. Here’s a simple explanation of how to subscribe to the podcast. By using a digital audio player like an iPod, you can carry the program with you to listen to whenever and wherever you want and even play it for your friends and family who might be interested in the information the program will provide.
A podcast is basically a recorded radio program in the form of a digital audio file, usually an MP3 file. This audio file is included in an RSS Feed so that your computer can subscribe to it and automatically download that audio file for you to listen to either on your computer or portable audio player, like an iPod.
With your podcast subscription software or online music service you’ll want to use the following file link in the appropriate subscription box to subscribe to the Pioneer Hi-Bred Forage Forum: http://www.zimmcomm.biz/pioneer/forage-forum.xml
Once you’ve added this subscription your software will check that file for the latest Forage Forum podcast and automatically download it onto your computer into the folder you specified when you set up the software. If you use a digital audio player, the file will be placed onto it when you synchronize the player with your computer. Then you can listen to the Forage Forum whenever and wherever you want.
We will post an announcement on World Dairy Diary each time a new program is available which will describe the program and provide you with a direct link to the audio file so that you can click on it and listen immediately if you would like.
