ACE Meeting to Focuses on 'Cows, People, Sun & Air'
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/28/2015

Community leaders, elected officials, conservation officials and livestock producers are being invited to participate in a dialogue forum about issues facing rural communities. The meetings are part of the Agriculture Community Engagement, or ACE partnership--which is a joint effort of the Wisconsin Towns Association, Wisconsin Counties Association and Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin.

The first gathering is February 24 at Glacier Canyon Lodge in Wisconsin Dells; with the second being held February 25 at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center in Green Bay.

The theme of each meeting is 'Cows + People + Sun + Air = ?' Each will create dialogue aimed at helping rural communities find answers to key questions involving these shared resources.

Speakers at the ACE meeting include Jeff Endres, a Wisconsin dairy farmer who is active in the Yahara Pride watershed project; Tucker Burch, research hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey; Brenda Murphy, Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board; Sgt. Mike Klingenberg, Wisconsin State Patrol; Rob Richard, Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation; and State Agriculture Secretary Ben Brancel.

To register for either ACE event, call the Wisconsin Towns Association at 715-526-3157 or go to www.pdpw.org.
