Fond du Lac County Farm Bureau member Chris Pollack was recently appointed to the Governor’s Task Force on Climate Change.
Governor Evers announced the task force on October 17, which is comprised of representatives from various industries including agriculture, manufacturing, energy, education and the state legislature.
Pollack is a fifth-generation dairy farmer from Ripon and currently serves as vice president of Fond du Lac County Farm Bureau.
“I am excited for the opportunity to talk about the sustainable practices Wisconsin farmers utilize, while also learning more about how we can work with other industries to make a positive impact today and for the future,” said Pollack.
Other Wisconsin Farm Bureau members on the task force include Doug Rebout, a dairy farmer from Janesville, and Joe Bragger, a dairy farmer from Independence.
“Wisconsin farmers care deeply about protecting our natural resources and ensuring our rural businesses are sustainable for future generations,” said WFBF President Jim Holte. “Wisconsin Farm Bureau is pleased to see farmers have an active voice on this task force and can engage in conversations about sustainable farming and conservation practices.”
