Hoard's Dairyman Ask an Editor


While browsing the pages of our magazine and website, or while walking the yard of your farm, have you ever had a question that has just stumped you? Like, “Why do my cows look like they are only playing in the water trough instead of drinking?” or “How likely am I to have a set of triplet heifers?” If you have questions for Hoard’s Dairyman, you can submit them here. One member of our team of editors will research your question, contact an authority in the area if needed, and respond to your burning question. We’ll even forward herd health questions to one of our Veterinary Column contributors to answer it in a page of our magazine.

Also, if you have something you just need to let us know about, we’d love to hear about it! In each issue of Hoard’s Dairyman you can find the Opinions, Brickbats, and Bouquets section. Here, readers tell us their thoughts, and share what they really think about the perils of our industry. If you have a handy way to handle something on your farm, submit it as one of our famed Handy Hints (and make some money while doing it.) You can email it to the editors -editors@hoards.com- and your hint could be printed and shared with tens of thousands of producers worldwide. Handy Hints that are published receive $30 and if you include a clear, reproducible photo, that earns you an additional $20.

The photo should be at least 240 dpi (dots per inch) and approximately 4" x 6" in size to print well in our magazine. And, when you provide your full mailing address with your hint, payment will be sent promptly. (Hints and photos can also be mailed to the Hoard’s Dairyman office at PO BOX 801, Fort Atkinson, Wis., 53538)
