Farm and Dairy named one of best in nation


DES PLAINES, Ill. – Farm and Dairy has been named one of the country’s top nondaily newspapers.
The paper placed third in the 2006 Nation’s Best NonDaily Newspaper Competition sponsored by the Inland Press Association.
The contest, open to all U.S. newspapers, recognizes high achievement in nondaily community newspaper publishing. Entries are judged on quality of writing, story selection, design and presentation of these stories and community focus.
“Farm and Dairy competed against newspapers with more than 10,000 subscribers from across the country,” said Publisher Scot Darling. “We are very honored to have earned this award and all our employees deserve the credit.”
Judges commented that Farm and Dairy provides “relevant and engaging stories” to its readers. They also commented on the staff’s solid reporting and writing.
“When you consider we have only two full-time reporters, that means a lot,” said Editor Susan Crowell.
Farm and Dairy, which has been in continuous publication since 1914, and its parent company, Lyle Printing and Publishing, are locally owned by the Darling family.
