Bonnie Cooper

As editor of the Canada-based Holstein Journal, Cooper wears a lot of different hats. “I write, edit, proofread and lay out the magazine,” she says, along with working with freelance writers, translators and a graphic designer. Cooper says the hardworking, down-to-earth people of the dairy industry inspire her in her work. Her favorite part of the job is covering dairy cattle shows. She’s familiar with that environment. “I grew up showing cattle as a youth and still enjoy seeing the best cattle in the world compete in the show ring,” she says.
