What People Are Saying

“We’ve called on Terri for freelance articles for Drovers/CattleNetwork on several occasions, and continue to call on her because her work has been on time and on target, including photos and any other supporting information we have requested. She understands our industry and our audience.”

John Maday, Managing Editor, Drovers/CattleNetwork


“Terri is a very dependable writer, always hitting deadlines with a complete product. Terri’s work arrives print-ready and requires little to no editing. I can give Terri a subject matter and she runs with it. She is a definite asset to Feed-Lot Magazine as a freelance writer, and is a pleasure to work with.”

Jill Dunkel – Feed-Lot Magazine.


“Terri Queck-Matzie’s written words bring people and places alive. Her tenure as a newspaper editor served her well as her skills at spelling, sentence structure, and punctuation surely have her “grammar school” teachers beaming with pride. In addition to being an accomplished photographer she delivers her copy and photos on time — every time.”

J. David Nichols – Nichols Farms Ltd.

“The National Sheep Improvement Program is small non-profit organization supporting production records for sheep producers. Most of our funding goes to producing estimated breeding values (EBVs) for our members, which they use to increase the genetic future of their flocks. Finding resources to promote NSIP is difficult. Then we found Terri. She has been a Godsend, helping us develop ads and promotional articles about NSIP. The response has been tremendous. We now have interested producers calling us thanks to her efforts. She understands the livestock industry and how to promote NSIP on our meager budget. Thank you, Terri!”

Jerry Sorensen, Promotion and Education Chair for NSIP


“Terri knows agriculture and I can trust when she writes an article, it’s relevant and has the information farmers want to read. She thinks ahead, selects the right people, prepares for interviews, asks the right questions. She knows her topic and researches it well. And she’s a good writer.”

Rod Swoboda – Wallaces Farmer Magazine


“Terri did an excellent job of creating banner and booth displays and other marketing materials for agriCAREERS, Inc. Terri was creative, patient, and professional. The quality was excellent and the projects were completed in a timely manner.”

Tammy Jensen – Jensen, Maas, and Assoc., Inc. dba agriCAREERS, Inc.


“I have had the pleasure of working with Terri Queck-Matzie on several news articles. My observations are that she asks good questions and is very accurate in what she writes. In my experience she is fair and objective and she goes beyond the call of duty to make sure she is accurate in her articles. My quotations have never been taken out of context or misused in any manner. I also have found her to have an exceptionally keen sense of her audience and she understands how to appeal to their interests. In my experience Terri holds her professional standards to high levels.”

Maynard Hogberg – Iowa State University Professor and Chair Department of Animal Science


“While working at KSIB, Terri did an excellent job of covering and reporting on the local news scene. Her experience was invaluable when it came to local news. She always seemed to be one step ahead of the story and had the ability to report what is important to our listeners.”

Chad Rieck – KSIB Radio General Manager

“Terri introduced me into the world of radio news and journalism. She was an amazing mentor as I learned to write my first news stories. Without her guidance and support, I would unlikely possess the knowledge I have today.”
