Gov. Evers announces budget proposals to help Wisconsin farmers
MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers says his upcoming budget proposal will include more than $43 million for the state’s agriculture industry and farm families.

“Our agricultural industry is Wisconsin’s past and present, and it will be our future,” Gov. Evers said in a statement announcing the plan. “Our proud farming history is core to our state’s culture and people, and Wisconsin farmers have carried and supported our state economy for generations.”
