Each year, the Hoard’s Dairyman and Hay & Forage Grower editorial staffs dedicate three or four days to a team wide photo trip. Our team of seven travels to a major dairy state to take photos and interview representatives of the current dairy industry.
Last week, our travels took us to Minnesota, Iowa, and South Dakota. In all, the team visited 13 dairies, two beef operations, a hay operation, and a cheese processing plant.
The full week of travel yielded stories, videos, and thousands of photos. Stay tuned, as these images will eventually appear on the covers of magazines, in our calendar, and throughout the pages of Hoard’s Dairyman and Hay & Forage Grower magazines.
Special thanks to the farms and plant that let us visit.
Please enjoy this snapshot of a few of our favorite images and videos from the week.
