Gov. Walker presents official legislative citation at Farm Tech Days

July 18, 2013 | 0 comments

Gov. Scott Walker spend several hours visiting with folks at the 60th anniversary of Wisconsin Farm Technology Days in Barron County, shaking hands, answering questions, presenting an official legislative proclamation and even trying some farm equipment.

In his address on the stage of the Family Living Tent he talked about the state's official flag that is 150 years old this year and pointed out that the illustration on one of the quadrants of the flag is the tools of the farmer.

He said farmers and the tools needed to keep them in business have always been important and continue to be important today.

He commended the organizers of Wisconsin Farm Technology Days and the host family, Alex and Mary Olson of Breezy Hill Dairy, for recognizing the importance of embracing new technology.

He said that's why he endorses tax incentives such as production credit tax credits that will allow farmers and businesses to invest in the items that will keep their businesses viable in the future.

He said, "Technology is what is going to make us grow."

He also answered questions about agricultural exports and concerns about the raw milk legislative proposal and he said he is pleased that the USDA has stepped up to the state's request for disaster assistance.

He said that is important to those who experienced extensive losses this year.

Following his presentation he looked at some of the technology, climbing into combines, turning on the engine to get more of a feel for it, and visiting with company representatives and farmers.
