Postal hikes force subscription increase


SALEM, Ohio — Mailing costs have risen sharply over the past year. Farm and Dairy absorbed a postal increase in July 2007, and chose not to raise subscription prices.

Now, faced with a second postal price hike in less than a year and recently announced price increases in newsprint, we find it necessary to raise our subscription rates.

Therefore, effective May 1, the rates for a one-year and two-year subscription will be $35 and $59.50, respectively.

“We believe Farm and Dairy remains an exceptional bargain,” said Publisher Scot Darling. “For just 57 cents a week, you receive valuable information and money-saving opportunities. By striking the right deal with one of our many advertisers or by finding a “steal” at one of the thousands of auctions advertised each year in our pages, your investment can pay for itself many times over.”

To minimize the impact of the price increase, subscribers will be able to lock in the old rate until April 30. Send a check for $31 for one year or $53 for two years to: Farm and Dairy Subscription Department, P.O. Box 38, Salem OH 44460 or call 800-837-3419 and charge it to a credit card.

The entire team at Farm and Dairy thanks you for your past support. We are committed to maintaining your trust and we promise to deliver the news and advertising to you at the most reasonable price possible.
