New releases and events you don’t want to miss.

Similar to the Hoard’s Dairyman magazine, the Hoard’s Dairyman bookstore aims to serve as a reliable source of information and education for any and all involved in the dairy industry — farm managers and employees, veterinarians, students, and industry professionals alike.

This year, the Hoard’s Dairyman bookstore is proud to present three new titles for your farm library, as well an opportunity to support dairy youth in the spirit of the holidays.

Come say “hi” at booths 213 and 217 in the Coliseum’s lower level as you enter from the barns. Check out our new books, and possibly even meet the masterminds and industry experts behind their pages.
