Wisconsin Ag Connection - 12/28/2017

The annual Ag Day at the Capitol has been scheduled for January 24 at the Monona Terrace in Madison. The event is the largest gathering of farmers from across the state representing a variety of farm groups to learn more about priority state issues, and to lobby their state lawmakers as a unified voice for agriculture.

The forum gets underway with lunch, a briefing on state issues, followed by a walk to the Capitol to meet with representatives to discuss issues favorable for Wisconsin farmers.

Organizers say hot topics this year will include operating farms with lower commodity prices, rural health care, the 2018 Farm Bill and managing the state's wolf population.

Meanwhile, Governor Scott Walker has been invited to address the crowd.

Major sponsors of the event include the Wisconsin Farm Bureau, Rural Mutual Insurance Company, GROWMARK Inc., Dairy Business Association, Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin, Wisconsin Cattlemen's Association, Wisconsin Corn Growers Association, Wisconsin Pork Association, Wisconsin Potato & Vegetable Growers Association, Wisconsin Soybean Association, Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers Association, and Wisconsin Horse Council.

To register for Ag Day at the Capitol, call 800-261-3276. The cost is $25.
