Hoffmann’s winning entry titled, Yearly Cattle Vaccinations in Southwest Minnesota, focused on herd health management, detailing the care and low-stress treatment of the calves.
The Doan was announced at the conclusion of the Agri-Pulse Farm Bill Summit on Monday by none other than Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts (R-KS). The Doan is named after Stewart Doan, a farm broadcaster and senior editor at Agri-Pulse, who passed away suddenly in May 2012. This is the third year for the award, which is funded by a gift from Agri-Pulse through the NAFB Foundation.
