Hay & Forage Grower readers may notice a new byline in the magazine and on hayandforage.com. Nick Paulson, a Minneapolis native, was hired as an associate editor. He comes with four years’ experience writing about “nearly every topic in the community,” he says, for the Stevens Point Journal, Stevens Point, WI.

“Nick Paulson brings a solid talent for community reporting to Hay & Forage Grower,” says Editor Fae Holin. “And community reporting is more than writing for a print publication these days. It’s integrating print with website and social-media venues. Besides writing about forage production for the magazine, he will help provide daily website, Twitter and Facebook offerings that forage growers, researchers and company representatives will need to stay informed about the industry.”

An Iowa State University graduate with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communications, Paulson is a passionate supporter of all Minnesota sports teams as well as an avid runner and reader.
