The following Wisconsin agriculture groups, the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation, Wisconsin Pork Association, Wisconsin Dairy Alliance, Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Association, Wisconsin Soybean Association, Wisconsin Association of Professional Agricultural Consultants, Wisconsin Cattlemen’s Association, and the Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers Association, issued this joint statement:

“We respect the Governor’s nomination of Brad Pfaff as DATCP Secretary. Earlier this spring, we issued a joint statement of support for his nomination and supported him at his confirmation hearing.

We also respect the authority of the State Senate to review leadership appointments for state agencies and departments. We are confident that they aim to defend and promote agriculture in Wisconsin.

As an agricultural community, we strive to work together with leaders in state and local government to support and maintain Wisconsin’s farm economy. We look forward to working together to support the development of strong agriculture policy in Wisconsin.”
