We will have a lawmaker in our area.
On Tuesday, October 8, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin will visit Yellowstone Cheese in Cadott to tour their business, meet with company leadership and workers, and highlight her Dairy Business Innovation Initiatives Program which helps dairy businesses add value to their products and reach new markets.
As a result of Senator Baldwin’s work with dairy leaders to create the Dairy Business Innovation Initiatives, the U.S. Department of Agriculture selected Wisconsin to host the new Dairy Business Innovation Alliance, which will be a Midwest hub that supports dairy entrepreneurs and helps farmers find new ways to be profitable and meet consumer demand. The hub will be led by the Center for Dairy Research at UW-Madison in partnership with the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association and the support of other dairy organizations.
