WFU Surveying Farmers on 'Wisconsin Cheese' Label
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/15/2018
The Wisconsin Farmers Union wants to know what farmers and consumers think the criteria should be if dairy products carry the 'Wisconsin Cheese' label. The group has put together a short online survey, which asks the public about their thoughts on how
much milk should come from Wisconsin if state-made cheese uses the designation of being Wisconsin Cheese.
"Wisconsin farmers, cheesemakers and even our consumers take a lot of pride in our dairy heritage and the quality of our dairy products," said WFU President Darin Von Ruden. "As farmers face one of the worst declines in dairy prices they've seen in decades,
we want to be sure the 'Wisconsin Cheese' label is being used to its fullest potential."
The Wisconsin Cheese label is managed by the Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin. Von Ruden says the survey is only six questions long and shouldn't take more than two minutes to complete.
