Raise your glass - of milk that is - to commemorate National Milk Day on Jan. 11. It marks the day milk started being delivered in sterilized glass bottles back in 1878. As the story goes, Alexander Campbell of the New York Dairy Company announced to the New York State Senate that his company was the first to make these deliveries, according to NationalDayCalendar.com. But let's back up a bit in milk history.
When I took this position with the Wisconsin State Farmer at the end of March, I never imagined 2017 would hold as much turmoil for the agriculture industry as it has. Growing up on a dairy farm in Washington County more than 30 years ago, was a far cry different than what farmers face today.
TOWN OF DELAFIELD - Anabelle, a dairy cow at Cozy Nook Farm in Waukesha County, calmly watched the hustle of people hoisting Christmas trees on top of vehicles on Nov. 24. To her, little mattered other than the feed placed in front of her and the next milking. To Tom and Joan Oberhaus, it was opening day of Christmas tree sales and the yard and shed east of the milking barn buzzed with activity - the same area that about a month earlier had been lined with pumpkins during the farm's fall market.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
