New assistant editor Lucas Sjostrom has an extensive and evolving dairy background. He grew on his family’s 100-Holstein, 750-acre dairy farm in southern Minnesota. He now lives near Brooten, Minn., with his wife, Alise, and daughter, Lucy, where they are starting a farmstead cheese plant, Redhead Creamery, on her parents’ 200-cow dairy farm. Prior to joining Dairy Herd Management, Sjostrom worked as a government relations specialist and communications assistant with Holstein Association USA, and served as an editor with another national dairy publication.
Staying active and close to the farm and cheese plant, Sjostrom’s office will be located above the dairy’s milking parlor, with a window into the freestall barn. E-mail him at email@example.com.
