Tom Quaife, Editor
Tom has served as editor of Dairy Herd Management since 1992. During that time, the magazine has evolved from one that emphasized government policy and industry issues to one that has a strong business focus. Tom believes in publishing articles that producers can act upon directly, particularly as it relates to the management of the dairy farm business. Tom graduated from Iowa State University and his areas of expertise include health, milking equipment, dairy genetics, facilities, and milk quality. Prior to joining the Dairy Herd Management team, he spent four years as editor of Swine Practitioner and five years as an associate editor with Pork magazine. Tom’s experience in the pork industry gave him valuable insight that he applies to the dairy industry. Tom is located in the Lenexa, Kan., office.
