State Rep. Don Vruwink (D-Milton) recently accepted the Legislative Excellence Award from the Wisconsin Dairy Business Association.
The award recognizes legislators for ongoing support for farmers, processors and the broader dairy community.
“As a member of the Dairy Task Force, I got to know dairy farmers around the state, and I know the challenges that they face. The dairy industry contributes over $45 billion to Wisconsin’s economy. We need to keep the dairy industry strong and vibrant in Wisconsin,” said Rep. Vruwink.
Rep. Vruwink serves as ranking member on the Rural Development Committee, and also serves on the Agriculture Committee. He is a member of the Dairy Business Association, Wisconsin Farm Bureau, and served on the Wisconsin Dairy Task Force.
