Wisconsin Ag Connection - 04/08/2020

With Wisconsin farmers facing an unprecedented series of challenges brought on by low commodity prices, unfavorable weather patterns, uncertain global markets and now, challenges posed by COVID-19, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture reminds farmers that support, information and resources are available through the Wisconsin Farm Center.

Since the mid-1980s, thousands of farm families have turned to the Wisconsin Farm Center, which provides an extensive array of services to farmers, often in cooperation with the university, governmental or private sector.

"Over the last few decades, the Wisconsin Farm Center has helped farmers deal with most every kind of challenge or opportunity farming provides," said DATCP Interim Secretary Randy Romanski. "Each year brings its own unique set of challenges to farmers. After the difficult circumstances of the past several years, no one could have predicted COVID-19. Farming is a complicated and demanding business, and it's always helpful to have someone there providing support, suggestions and encouragement."

These services are provided at no cost to farmers, and all information provided to the Farm Center is confidential. In recent years, the Farm Center has averaged approximately 2,200 calls annually.

Farmers and agribusiness owners can contact the Farm Center by calling 800-942-2474.
