This month, we're sad to see the talents of Associate Editor Stacey Hager leave the staff of Soybean Digest. However, her move to sister publications, BEEF and National Hog Farmer, will allow her to pursue her ambitions in the livestock sector. We wish her well.

Fortunately, Editorial Assistant Kate Fisher is ready for new challenges and now becomes assistant editor. With her southeast Iowa farm background, she'll be taking on more responsibilities in writing, editing and producing future issues of Soybean Digest.

Congratulations on the new responsibilities, Kate.
