Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/20/2014
A longtime leader within the Wisconsin Pork Association has been appointed as a member of the state agriculture department's citizen board. Douglas Wolf from Lancaster has been chosen to fill the unexpired term of Richard Cates, who stepped down from the DATCP board in December.
Wolf has farmed for 38 years and is a partner, along with his wife Kris and son Shannon in Wolf L & G Farms LLC, a diversified hog, cattle and crop operation.
He is a past president of the National Pork Producers Council, served on the Wisconsin Pork Association board and has been an Agricultural Industries instructor at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
"It's an honor to have been appointed to serve on such a prestigious board," Wolf said. "I'm looking forward to participating and learning about the issues facing our state's agriculture industry and how the DATCP board can help keep Wisconsin growing."
Wolf holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Economics from UW-Platteville and a Master of Science degree in Meat and Animal Science from UW-Madison.
