MADISON – The following statement can be attributed to Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation President Joe Bragger:
“Last night I had the honor of attending Governor Evers’ 2020 State of the State Address on behalf of Wisconsin Farm Bureau. Across the state our members are listening intently to our elected officials and we were pleased on the attention drawn to agriculture.
Gov. Evers highlighting our agriculture’s diversity was important, because it is what makes us strong. The pride our farmers have in what they do is admirable.
The support promised to our state’s hard-working farmers was encouraging. Boosting our dairy exports and providing additional resources can only help our stressed farmers.
We appreciate Gov. Evers and our lawmakers for understanding the significant importance of agriculture to our state’s economy. Together we can keep building a better future for our rural communities.”
