Dairy Employee Newsletter Offered On-line by UW Extension

The Dairy Partner / El Compañero was a bimonthly newsletter geared towards dairy farm employees.  The newsletter articles were written by UW-Extension agriculture agents and state specialists and were available in both English and Spanish.  The purpose of this newsletter was to provide information directly to farm employees to help them improve their dairy cattle knowledge, maintain farm safety, and improve their way of life.  The last published issue was in January/February 2019; however, there is still a lot of good information to be found in the past issues.  Here is a link to the archives:
