Our Marketing Committee is also working hard to increase our advertising so as to drive more potential customers to our web site, and in turn, to our member farms.

  • Empire's marketing efforts also include monthly mailings to all new AOBA leads within a 9-state area, in addition to direct marketing through mailings, advertising media, and the purchase of trade show space. Marketing done by your association is marketing for YOUR FARM. Our marketing efforts encourage people to visit the Empire web site, where they can find your listing alphabetically, by direct search, or by checking the map of member farms.
  • Empire offers some of the best educational programs in the industry, for members and for veterinarians, and it does so at a very low cost to participants.
