On-the-Farm Twilight Meetings Planned for August
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/09/2017

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 next month. The events, conducted in different parts of the state, each include a 60-minute 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.

PDPW Director Shelly Mayer says 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.

"On-farm programs like the ACE On-the-Farm Twilight Meetings help agriculture and the residents of local communities better understand each other so we can co-exist and thrive," Mayer says. "Agriculture touches so much of community life--from the economic to the environment to the quality of life."

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 28 - Brooks Farms, Waupaca

** August 29 - Mar-Bec Dairy, Mondovi

** August 30 - Cozy Nook Farm, Waukesha

** August 31 - Ripp's Dairy Valley, Dane

Each of the events are free of charge. To attend one of the upcoming ACE Twilight Meetings, reserve your space by contacting the Wisconsin Towns Association at 715-526-3157 or PDPW at 800-947-7379.
