MADISON, Wis. — The Dairy Business Association, Wisconsin’s largest dairy lobbying group, applauded an announcement today by Republican state lawmakers that they are pursuing a plan to address the short- and long-term needs of agriculture in the state.
DBA President Tom Crave made the following comments:
“Our dairy farmers, who are the foundation of the state’s economy and rural communities, continue to experience a host of challenges, from commodity prices and customer trends to extreme weather.
“We appreciate that Republican leaders in the Legislature understand the importance of addressing this adversity, supporting key existing legislation and putting forth new proposals to strengthen agriculture at this critical time.
“We are encouraged to see this support and recent proposals by Gov. Evers that underscore the bipartisan commitment to moving America’s Dairyland forward.”
