WFBF Members Appointed to PR, Education Committee
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 11/17/2020

Several Wisconsin Farm Bureau members have been appointed to the Promotion and Education Committee. The organization's board of directors chose Kathy Muth from Washington County, Brenda Dowiasch of Eau Claire County and Steven Mueller from St. Croix County to serve three-year terms on the panel, starting next month.

Muth farms with her husband, George, and their son, Peter, and daughter-in-law, Gina. They milk 250 cows in the town of Cheeseville. Kathy serves as Washington County Farm Bureau's Ag in the Classroom co-chair and enjoys facilitating learning opportunities centered around agriculture.

Dowiasch works for the USDA Farm Service Agency as a member of the farm loan team serving north central Wisconsin. She is an active member of the Eau Claire County Farm Bureau, Augusta FFA Alumni and the local trap shooting team.

Mueller, along with his family, grows crops on 700 acres in western Wisconsin. After milking cows for 25 years, his family recently transitioned into cash crops. In addition to farm work, Steven works off the farm at a warehouse facility in Hudson. He also serves on the St. Croix County Farm Bureau board of directors.

The Promotion and Education Committee replaced the state's Women Committee several years ago. The group is charged with developing, implementing and promoting projects and programs which build awareness and understanding of agriculture and provide leadership development for the agricultural community.
