Hogseth to Serve as WFU Watershed Coordinator
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 09/06/2019

The Wisconsin Farmers Union has hired Bill Hogseth to serve as its watershed coordinator. In this newly created role, he will work directly with farmer-led councils in Dunn, Pierce, Polk and St. Croix counties to increase farmer engagement, build council capacity, expand participation in incentive programs, coordinate water testing and programming, and create greater impacts in the Mississippi River Watershed.

Hogseth will also network with multiple agencies that are concerned about water quality.

"Bill is well-respected for his facilitation and organizing skills and has also worked on some tough issues such as chronic wasting disease in the deer herd," said WFU Director Julie Bomar. "He has strong academic and work experience in natural resources. Bill will be an excellent addition to the Farmers Union team."

He is a former biologist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, where he was involved with prairie and oak savanna restoration along the Lower Chippewa River. In recent years, he worked closely with hunters to manage deer populations and address chronic wasting disease.
