The Status of Wisconsin Agriculture report is in its 25th year of publication, although it began as a one-time publication sparked by the Farm Crisis in 1986. This year’s report makes some observations about Wisconsin agriculture in that time.
“Agriculture has been a big supplier of manufacturing jobs, particularly in the cheese sector,” said Ed Jesse, the report’s editor and a professor emeritus in the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics at UW-Madison. “It also supports meat-packing operations and elevators and fabricators of grain.
“In this day and age when the buzz word is jobs, I think Wisconsin has done a nice job in that regard,” Jesse said.
