Throughout the month of June, U.S. Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI) has attended a number of dairy breakfasts at family farms across western and central Wisconsin.
“Family farmers are critical to providing the food security that we need throughout our nation. June Dairy Month gives us a great opportunity to go out and visit our local family farms. There is no better way to start off a weekend then getting together with the community to enjoy a delicious dairy breakfast,” Kind said.
During the weekend of June 20-21, Kind attended dairy breakfasts in La Crosse and Vernon counties.
At the Vernon County breakfast on the Eness family farm near Ontario, Kind caught up with Orion Samuelson, host of the daily radio broadcast “National Farm Report,” at the farm Samuelson grew up on.
Kind has made family farms a top priority, helping to remove unnecessary regulations to ensure that young people can help out on their farms and working to fix our commodity programs to ensure that they benefit family farms instead of large agribusinesses. Additionally, Kind is also working to expand export opportunities around the world for Wisconsin dairy producers.
