We are as close to the start of their food as it gets. You don’t need a Ph.D. to talk to your customers, and you don’t have to have all of the answers. You can tell people your story, talk about how you do things on your farm, share your knowledge and join the conversation.
To our customers, we are the experts, and they want to hear from us.
This is my first column for Dairy Herd Management. Each month my column will focus on using social media and advocating for agriculture. I hope you will join the conversation.
