Wisconsin to Invest $33 million in Agriculture

This is refreshing:

Wisconsin's agricultural industry will receive $33 million in initiatives to help it in compete in the global market, Gov. Jim Doyle announced Thursday.Doyle spoke at a meeting of the Dairy Business Association, announcing a combination of proposals already passed in the state budget and new ideas that need legislative approval.

"The next generation of agriculture must match the needs of a competitive global market with efficiency, stewardship and creativity," Doyle told the group representing about 500 dairy producers and others in the industry. "We know in order for us to maintain our pre-eminent position as America's dairy land we have to be stronger, we have to be leaner and we have to be more specialized than ever before."
