ACE/PDPW Twilight Meetings to Bring People to the Farm
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 07/14/2010

The Wisconsin Counties Association, Wisconsin Towns Association and Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin are partnering to sponsor two on-farm Agriculture Community Engagement Twilight Meetings in August. The forums are designed to bring community leaders, elected officials, conservation officials, dairy and livestock producers and all citizens in one spot to learn from one another.

"Those attending an ACE twilight meeting will be treated to a 60-minute tour of the hosting dairy followed by a discussion moderated by Dennis Frame of UW Discovery Farm," said PDPW President Eric Hillan. "The discussion will provide a platform for open communication about issues important to our communities."

The first meeting will be held August 11 at Saxon Homestead Farm LLC in Cleveland. The dairy is owned by Robert & Kathleen Block-Klessig, Karl & Elizabeth Klessig, Gerald & Elise Klessig Heimerl and families. The farm was transitioned in 1991 from conventional dairying to management intensive rotational grazing and is home to 450 crossbred cattle housed on 900 acres.

On August 12, another meeting will be held near Independence at the Bragger Family Farm, a three-way partnership involving Hildegard Bragger and two of her sons, Joe and Dan. This dairy milks 285 head on two farms and is involved in a 32,000 pullet operation and beef operation. Both Saxon Homestead Farm LLC and Bragger Family Farm are graduates of UW Discovery Farms.

The meetings, which are free to all attendees, are slated to start at 6:00 p.m. and will wrap up by 8:30 p.m.

To attend one of the upcoming ACE Twilight Meetings, call 715-526-3157.
