Foreign Ag Officials Making Stops in Wisconsin
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 09/18/2014
Representatives from around the world will visit Wisconsin next week to experience first-hand the breadth and diversity of American agriculture. Attaches from more than 25 countries will tour Wisconsin to visit farms and see the products and practices used in American agriculture production.
Coordinators of the trip say Wisconsin's climate, natural resources, agribusinesses and farm heritage help to make it one of the most diverse agricultural states nationwide.
The tour is arranged by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Foreign Agricultural Service, in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture. Foreign Agricultural Service Administer Phil Karsting will accompany the group during its travels.
Wisconsin stops will include The DeLong Company in Clinton, Organic Valley Co-op in Lafarge, Wetherby Cranberry Company in Warrens, and the Arlington Agricultural Research Station.
