DairyBusiness announced today that Sarah Hill will join the company, starting August 4, to expand their editorial team. Sarah will be editing DairyBusiness Weekly and contributing content to all of DairyBusiness’ print magazines, digital platforms and social media, with emphasis on DairyBusiness West.
Sarah’s roots are in the dairy industry, as she grew up on a small Holstein/Red & White dairy in north central Missouri. She raised and showed dairy cattle while serving in leadership roles in both 4-H and FFA. Sarah participated in the Missouri Junior Holstein Association, serving as Secretary and Vice President, and served as the 2006 Missouri Holstein Princess. Sarah represented Missouri several times at the National Holstein Convention in the public speaking and dairy bowl competitions. She received a National Holstein Women’s Scholarship in 2005.
While pursuing a degree in Agricultural Journalism with a minor in Animal Science from the University of Missouri, Sarah successfully completed internships with Hoard’s Dairyman and Dairy Farmers of America, Inc. In 2008, Sarah was a finalist for the Forrest Bassford Student Award, sponsored by the Livestock Publications Council that recognizes excellence and leadership among students.
Her post-collegiate career has included working as a 4-H Military Educator for the University of Wyoming Cooperative Extension Service and, most recently, as a Public Relations Associate with integrated marketing communications firm MorganMyers. Sarah has also served as Badger Chapter Secretary of the National Agri-Marketing Association. Sarah and her husband, Braeton, own a small farm outside of Rice Lake, Wisconsin.
“I am thrilled to be joining the DairyBusiness team and serving dairy producers with valuable information from a source they can trust,” said Sarah. “I am honored to be coming on board with one of the most innovative and leading companies in the dairy industry.”
DairyBusiness Publisher Cliff Passino said, “Sarah’s infectious enthusiasm and industry knowledge makes her a key addition to the DairyBusiness family. We view her appointment as a sign of our commitment to being leaders in the dairy industry.” Passino continued, “Our new innovations and the increasing demand for superior content led us to look for an addition to our editorial team who will fit in with our commitment to quality.
