On-the-Farm Twilight Meetings Planned for August
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/08/2019

The Wisconsin Counties Association, Wisconsin Towns Association and the Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin are partnering up once again to sponsor on-farm Agriculture Community Engagement Twilight Meetings later this month. The events, conducted in different parts of the state, each include a tour of the hosting dairy followed by a relaxed discussion and ice cream. The discussion will provide a platform for open communication about issues important to our communities.

Organizers say the forums are an open invitation to the state's community leaders, elected officials, conservation officials, dairy and livestock producers and all citizens interested in learning from each other so Wisconsin communities can be vibrant and green.

"We're excited to offer these twilight meetings for community members to engage with dairy farm families and see modern agriculture firsthand," said Program Manager Cassie Mayer. "The discussions between community and business leaders, elected officials and dairy farmers are extremely valuable. We are dedicated to provide the platform through our ACE partnership with the Wisconsin Counties and Wisconsin Towns Associations and producer-led committee, to create a venue that will enable those conversations and help find common ground where we can grow together in rural America."

Each of the meetings begin at 6:00 p.m., followed by a guest speaker and question-and-answer time.

The program will be held on the following dates:

** August 26 - Soaring Eagle Dairy, Newton

** August 27 - Night Hawk Dairy, Stratford

** August 28 - Son-Bow Farms, Maiden Rock

** August 29 - Stone-Front Farm, Lancaster

Each of the events are free of charge. To attend one of the upcoming ACE Twilight Meetings, reserve your space by contacting PDPW at 800-947-7379.
