Thought I'd share some news regarding our No-Till Farmer staff:

  • John Dobberstein has joined the No-Till Farmer team as managing editor after serving for nearly 2 years as associate editor on Rural Lifestyle Dealer and Farm Equipment magazines — two tops-in-their-class publications that reach the North American farm equipment dealer. John will be a tremendous asset to our no-till efforts.
  • Our former managing editor, Dan Zinkand, will be moving back to Oregon where he will be getting married in the near future. We're real happy for Dan on this big event in his life, and the fact that Dan will continue to contribute as a freelancer to No-Till Farmer and Strip-Till Strategies, an e-newsletter dedicated to strip-till that we started in January.
  • Finally, contributing editor Martha Ostendorf has a big event in her life on Saturday when she marries Mike Mintz. I'm actually taking a road trip to eastern Montana to attend the wedding.

If your farm happens to be located along the I-94 corridor between Milwaukee and eastern Montana, I'd love to stop by and say hello and learn a little bit about what you have happening on your no-till farm. Just drop me an e-mail at
