Welcome to Season 5 of ‘The Right Idea Podcast.’ The theme for this season is Agriculture in Wisconsin. Wisconsin is home to nearly 65,000 farms and leads the nation in total cheese production, goat milk production, cranberry production, and MORE! This is why it is so important for policymakers to remain in close touch with the agriculture industry in order to create sensible and sustainable agriculture policies.
In the third episode of Season 5, we feature an interview with Jeff Montsma of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. We discuss his family’s ties to agriculture, the impact of co-ops in the dairy industry, labeling in the dairy industry, what the government can do better to address the challenges that our farmers are facing, and more!
