Madison – Last week Rep. Dave Considine (D-Baraboo) received a Legislative Excellence Award from Dairy Business Association. As the ranking member of the Assembly Committee on Agriculture and a former farmer, Rep. Considine is a tireless advocate for producers and processors.
“I am proud to accept this Legislative Excellence Award from DBA. Last session I worked hard to ensure we supported our agricultural industry as they have always supported us in Wisconsin. In the last few years alone the agricultural industry has overcome roadblocks like low commodity prices, undesirable weather, and now COVID-19. Without such a hardworking agricultural industry we would not be the state that we are. Producers and processors are the backbone of our rural communities and the entire state.
“I pledge to continue to support producers and processors in the 2021-2022 Legislative Session. From touring producers to supporting bills on the floor, I will continue to listen to and advocate for our farmers.”
