The Dairy Business Association, Wisconsin’s largest dairy lobbying group, applauded an announcement today by Gov. Tony Evers of a plan to address the needs of agriculture during his State of the State address.
DBA President Tom Crave made the following comments:
“We appreciate that Governor Evers recognizes the importance of agriculture to Wisconsin and has called for a three-pronged plan to strengthen farming and our rural communities.
“The governor and lawmakers of both parties clearly understand the significance of a vibrant farm economy to our state. DBA’s members heard this time and again as they visited with legislators earlier this week during our group’s Dairy Day at the Capitol.
“We look forward to being a resource for the Evers administration and the Legislature in these efforts.”
The Dairy Business Association is the leading dairy lobby group in Wisconsin, focused on advocating for sensible state laws and regulations that affect the dairy community.
