Ag board meeting to begin with Leopold award ceremony

Nov. 8, 2013 | 0 comments

MADISON

The citizen policy board for the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection Board will begin its next meeting by greeting the winners of this year's Leopold Conservation Award.

In a recent tradition, the award will be presented at the board meeting, scheduled for Nov. 13 in the board room at DATCP headquarters, 2811 Agriculture Drive in Madison. Board members will also meet the finalists in the program.

The award, given jointly by the Sand County Foundation – Aldo Leopold's family group – and Wisconsin Farm Bureau, recognizes excellence in conservation practices among farmers.

The Sand County Foundation offers the program in eight states, including Wisconsin, where the award was first given in 2006.

The agenda for the board meeting includes presentation of the award just prior to the beginning of the meeting at 9 a.m.

Then the board will hear from members of the public during public appearances and consider technical changes to rules for livestock premises registration, plant inspection and pest control, Agricultural Enterprise Areas, dairy farms, food processing plants and dairy plants contained in rules ATCP 17, 21, 53, 60, 70, 80.

The agenda includes consideration of scope statements for ATCP 93, 94 – flammable, combustible and hazardous liquids; petroleum and other liquid fuel products.

The board will also consider rules ATCP 110, 111 – home improvement practices and basement waterproofing practices.

Other rules the board will consider include ATCP 136 on mobile air conditioners, which regulates the reclaiming or recycling of refrigerant.

Also on the agenda is a scope statement on the Cranberry Marketing Order (ATCP 142.)

The board is also scheduled to hear reports on the Alice in Dairyland program and state livestock production and processing.

The board will consider a final draft of rule ATCP 10, 12 – Animal Disease and Movement; Animal Markets, Dealers and Truckers; and a scope statement for ATCP 55- Meat and Meat Food Products.

Staff will also present a scope statement for ATCP 60 – Dairy Farms and ATCP 80 - Dairy Plants.

The board will hear reports from the Division of Food Safety, the Wisconsin Agricultural Statistics Services, the Plant Industry Bureau, and options for board meeting software.

Another report will consider DATCP Information Technology.

The meeting will conclude with individual board member reports and a report from Secretary Ben Brancel. The meeting is scheduled to adjourn by 5:10 p.m.
