Extension Fond du Lac County Agriculture Programming continues to utilize a hardcopy, direct-mailing, monthly newsletter to over 600 farmers and agri-business professionals to share university-based resources that are timely and relevant.  The newsletters also serve as a vehicle to promote upcoming meetings in the immediate area. The title “From Field to Barn” is used, encompassing both agronomic and dairy production related areas. The two newsletters submitted include the November 2019 and December 2019 editions. In both editions, articles are predominantly written by two team members, with addition of other articles with source credit.

Team members write and provide articles from other resources in the monthly newsletter.  This agent provides the design and editing the newsletter. The newsletter is published with Microsoft Publisher 2019, and printed in black and white on colored paper with a Minolta C455 color printer.  Newsletters are distributed mid-month for the following month.
