Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation President Kevin Krentz released the following statement regarding Gov. Tony Evers’ announcement of additional funding for Wisconsin farmers.
“As farmers continue to work through challenges from COVID-19, severe weather and general commodity price variability, any assistance is welcome to Wisconsin farm families and the rural economy. We appreciate Governor Evers acknowledging the needs of the farming community and providing an additional $50 million in direct payments to support farmers through a new round of the Wisconsin Farm Support Program.
We plan to help share information with farmers and agriculturists across the state as more details are given.”
