Wisconsin Farm Bureau President: “Many important issues still need to be addressed”

Wisconsin Farm Bureau members are reflecting on a successful year and setting new policy goals for 2024.

President Kevin Krenz told more than one thousand members attending their annual meeting many important issues still need to be addressed at the federal, state, and local levels. “Issues like labor, the farm bill, alternative energies, federal milk marketing orders, health care, consumer concerns.
