Agriculture Agent Scott Reuss coordinates the educational displays and opportunities at the annual BOTF events.  If you have particular topics which you would like to see addressed at the 2022 event, send him your ideas at scott.reuss@wisc.edu

The Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin (wisconsindairy.org) website is set up to help you understand more about the Wisconsin dairy industry, including a Meet our Farmers documentary series that showcases six different farms’ stories from across the state.  Don’t forget that the beef industry has a large role in WI agriculture, with over $2 billion in sales every year.  Their checkoff funded website at beeftips.com has beef recipes, educational resources, grower information, and also has a ‘get to know our farmers’ section.

On the crops side of agriculture, the Wisconsin Corn Growers (wicorn.org) have industry news, educational resources, and explanations of their promotion and other efforts.  The WI Soybean Growers (wisoybean.org) also have similar resources and a meet our farms section.  Other grower groups which have websites allowing you to learn more about their production practices, producers, and how to utilize products in nutritious recipes include the WI Apple Growers (waga.org), WI Berry Growers (wiberries.org), WI Grape Growers (wigrapes.org), WI Potato and Vegetable Growers (wisconsinpotatoes.com), WI Cranberry Growers (wiscran.org), and others, as well.
